This is just a place to stay. Nothing fancy. The sites are on dirt, not much room between. No amenities. I think for a one night stay it's too much to pay We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We had a pull through so we didn't have to unhook our tow. Which was good since it was raining and we were just there for the night. Sites are close but we've been in tighter ones. Didn't look around or tour the caverns due to the rain. On our way out in the morning we noticed there are quite a few "residents" and a lot of them could use a good clean up of their home and site. Very close to the highway but we use earplugs to sleep when there is a highway that close. So no problem. Ok for a one night stop but that's about it. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Motorhome.

We were on our way to Nashville so this was just an overnight and we planned on coming back on our way back home. But we didn't. When we got there I called the owner she was a sweet thing and told me where to go I had a pull through and once I got there is was so tight I couldn't even open the awning. And once I put my slide out the guy on that side couldn't open his. It backs up to I-81 so you hear the trucks running all night long. If one was to wreck and come over the guard rail it would be right in the camp site. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The Caverns are right on site and it is very easy to find right off the Interstate. It's a good spot for a quick overnight stay.

I'm not sure what the reason is that campgrounds have to be so darn close to the Interstate highways and their exit ramps, but this one topped them all. Yes, it's nice to exit from the highway and immediately pull into a campground entrance, but it's also nice to get a good nights rest free from excessive highway noise. And there was quite a bit of noise, so if you are a light sleeper, don't expect much. Yes, I knew it was close to the highway, but it was at the halfway point home, and I didn't see many other options to choose from and I was tired from driving, so we stopped. Where is Wal-Mart when you need them? When we pulled in the main campground driveway, the entire place looked dreary and in need of some spring cleaning, maintenance, and sprucing up. At first I thought the rest room building had a band of yellow caution tape around it, but it was just the paint peeling off of the doors and the overall dirty, dingy look of the building. We didn't venture inside the building. The sites were OK, but not very level, and the utilities were fine. There were a number of seasonal campers around the grounds, some of which needed a good cleaning and tidying up. I must say that the staff member that checked us in was informative and welcoming. I think that was the only positive aspect of the entire stay. I doubt if we would ever stay there again. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is a great location. Not a bad place to stay for convenience. It is open year round and is directly off of I-81. The lot we had was a long pull through, so it made it easy for our long rig. It has quite a few "residents" and they had cluttered sites. However, everyone we met was very nice. I would stay here again if I was passing through, but would not be likely to vacation here.

Owners/staff very nice and helpful. Very convenient off I-81. With that comes highway noise. Not horrible inside, but can be heard day and night. Sites are VERY close together. If I wanted to watch TV outside, it would have to be under my neighbors slide. Lots of trees, some shade. And Dixie Caverns is on the site. Pretty cave, and you get a discount if camping here.

Dixie Caverns on site. Not far from Blueridge Parkway, though for me that wasn't particularly spectacular. Like a country drive - lots of trees. A few mountain overlooks. Only thing different is that there are no shops, restaurants, stations - just a tree lined roadway with a pretty view every now and then. Unless on a motorcycle, I really didn't see what all the hoopla is about.

Small park adjacent to Roanoke, the Blue Ridge Parkway, I-81 and their own Caverns. Restrooms looked old, I didn't use them. Full hook-ups available with fairly level pull through sites available for big rigs. They fill up so it might be good to call ahead.

Sites have grass between, picnic tables and fire rings. Tent sites around the perimeter. Lots of garbage cans around so not a problem to dump your own. Dog friendly. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Hard to rate. Very old park. Excellent 50 amp, WiFi and cable TV. Picnic table and trash container on every lot. Emptied daily. Lots of permenant old RV's. Stay 7 days get one free. Easy access to hookups. But I have never been in a park with neighbors so close! With tax comes to over $38 a day. I would stay here again but it should be a $28 fee for what you get.

Our site was in the center. While it was a pull-through, it was extremely narrow. Our outdoor mat was touching the sewer hookup pipe belonging to the adjacent site! We could not have extended our awning if we had had next-door neighbors. It appears that many sites are occupied by permanent residents. You need a 6-character code to enter the restrooms and showers, which have seen much better days. A police car patrolled several times during the evening, making us wonder why... There's no dedicated dog-walking area, although pets are welcome. We had no shade but it didn't matter, as we pulled in at dinner time and left early in the morning. Wifi was OK, but we were close to the office. There's a lot of road noise from the interstate. Our picnic table was rotting badly. We were not there while the cavern was open. We would not return to this campground. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Motorhome.

Easy on and off I-81, well marked entrance, good roads to site. Bathroom and showers clean and had A/C. No soap or towels or blower, bring your own. Great overnight stop. We were there for two nights took our dog to vet at Va. Tech, about 30 min. away. Everything you could need near by, food, shopping, and the Caverns. Would stay again.

We just stayed there one night. Did not feel welcoming. The shops associated with the campground only had "tourist trap" souvenirs and the staff seemed bored. We probably would not stay there again. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The staff that we dealt with were extremely friendly and helpful. The sites were very very close together and the noise from the Interstate was constant because this right by an on/off ramp. The fire pit was minimal and there is nothing for the any kids like a playground or swing set even. The grass was cut and trimmed and the WiFi and hookups worked perfectly. We would stay here again if we were traveling through and needed a spot for a night but it's not really a place you would want to stay for an extended time frame.

Starting with the good - The wifi works superbly, and the electric, water and sewer hook ups work well. Trash cans were always emptied. Bathroom was clean. The negatives. I've never been anywhere that the sites are this ridiculously close together. The trailers on the long term sites are mostly very run down, however the residents that I spoke with were pleasant. The traffic noise from I-81 is constant, as you would expect from a campground right next to a highway. It rained a lot while we were there and only a few sites have adequate gravel - there was a lot of mud. This isn't so much a campground as a parking stop with good hook ups and wifi.

Great for over night stay. Easy access from I-81. The site was pretty level and pull-through. We were happy about that, because who wants to mess around with parking a 36' trailer after 8 hours drive.
Would defiantly stop here again for a night's stay.
Yes, there was some highway noise, but it was OK. We camped at Dixie Caverns Campground in a Travel Trailer.
