19 RV Parks near Stuart, Virginia
Aug 2018 - $35.00
Campground area is old and rough. Most campsites for RV's are very small (we have a 23 foot trailer). Lots of screaming from unruly kids (parents have no control). The screaming is so loud that you cannot sit outside. I don't understand why parents just let their kids run around and scream. We have stayed in many state parks and national parks, by far this is the noisiest. We booked for 2 days but we might leave and go someplace else. This place might be nice during the week once the kids are back in school...weekends are noisy don't expect to get any sleep. The campsite itself was broken asphalt and pot holes.
The cabins looked nice to rent, some were on the lake. If we ever come back we might try to rent a cabin instead of using the camping area. If you come with kids ask about the area where you can hunt for "Fairy Stones". - wahooo

Stayed for a September weekend. This is the 10th state park in Virginia we have visited. It had to be the most beautiful lake yet. It was so peaceful on the lake (we brought kayaks), that if you stopped paddling, it was actually silent. For summer use, it had a very large beach and play area for the kids. We travel in a 17' travel trailer. The spaces were very tight. There is only one campground unless you are bringing horses, then there is one for that. There were a few larger spaces, but not many. The campground is about 1/2 mile from the beach. Due to hills and smaller roads, it is not bike friendly...even in the campground...and there are warnings about that. None of this should deter you. It is beautiful there and well maintained. The staff were all so friendly. About 3 miles back down the road, you get to search for "fairy stones" on State Park land. We found quite a few. Rangers also lead trips. There really are not any easy stores close by...probably within 20 minutes though...so come with what you need. We would revisit. - YFF

Staff and the host were outstanding. Among the best ever at a campground. Showers and bathrooms were better than some hotels. When you reserve online, you are guaranteed a site, and when you arrive, you pick out the site. Good water and electric...wish they had some full hookups. Lots of shade, trails. Very limited WiFi and cell service (you had to walk around sometimes), but very good TV reception. several very long pull-throughs. We chose a back-in. No really bad sites. Try to avoid rt 58 from I-77 to the park, hills and turns. We went back thru bassett and picked up 220 to Roanoke. - badbuckeye

We made reservations in the summer to stay at Deer Run Campground for three nights, so we could attend the Blue Ridge Folk Festival on Saturday, Oct. 26 at Ferrum College. I requested a pull-through site from the gentleman I spoke to on the phone and told him we had a 36' class A motorhome and we'd be towing a vehicle for a total of 53'. He said it would not be a problem. We drove from another campground where we had been staying the previous week and arrived in the rain at Deer Run. First thing we noticed was that gravel hadn't been added to the campground roadways in years and they were more mud then gravel. When my wife went in to check in she was told that we were scheduled to be in a back-in, but since the campground was practically empty, he would walk us to a pull-through. The site to which he guided us to was so unlevel that it would be impossible to get our big rig motorhome leveled safely. We drove back to the office and were told"I'm sorry, but that's all we have available. That seemed odd since we were one of maybe three RV's in the whole campground. Also We had passed sites that were more level on the drive back to the office, but they had other vehicles parked in them, not RVs. We decided that the campground could not accommodate us, so we opted to go somewhere else and lost our $50 deposit. We missed the Folk Festival because the next closest campground was 2 hours away. This could be a nice campground with TLC and general upkeep, but we cannot recommend it, especially to big rig class A motorhomes and 5th wheels. - John Laurich

Although well off the beaten path, and a little hard to find, we enjoyed staying here. The park is being renovated with wider spaces and sewer hookups. It was not crowded over Labor Day weekend and there were hayrides, etc... for the kids to enjoy. They have 3 lakes for fishing and a pool for the kids. The bathrooms had been repaired and were well stocked as well as very neat and clean. If you want to get away from it all, I recommend Deer Run. They also have permanents in a certain area in the rear, but they also seemed to be tidy and quiet hours were adhered to by all. We will stay again! - campfever

The family decided to spend Labor Day Weekend in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia at the last minute. We looked called the office at the Meadows of Dan Campground and were pleased that they had a site with water and power for Saturday and Sunday nights.
The campground is located right off the Blue Ridge Parkway at Meadows of Dan. The road into the park was filled with pot holes, but we were warned about them before arriving. The campground was fairly full with large trailers and RVS. We were the only tent trailer. The grounds are on a hill, but the sites were mostly level.
The facilities were clean and close to the camping loop. The restrooms were small, but nice. Each trailer site had water, electric, sewer, a fire ring, picnic table, and a charcoal grill. There is a small playground and athletic field near the sites. We especially enjoyed the large field and hill that allowed for some great stargazing on Sunday night.
The campground is near the town of Meadows of Dan with a small grocery store, gift shops, a restaurant, and a candy factory. One mile north on the Blue Ridge Parkway is Mabry Mill. Hillsville is 21 miles west and home to a large flea market/festival on Labor Day Weekend.
We enjoyed our stay and wish it could have been longer. We will return in the future. - dmaerz

We fell in love with this park! Very clean, in a rural setting with gorgeous sunsets. Park is up a hill surrounded by rolling meadows dotted with neat little cabins. We had a pull-through site but down below are some back-in sites. There were only 2 other RVs near us so we felt almost like we had the place to ourselves. Would definitely return. - Poolhall

Our GPS really led us astray on this one, and took us all round the place, and without a "good" address, it was a tough drive, to say the least...then, when we got there, at about 5:15, the office was closed and it was raining. The office is at the bottom, then you drive up a very steep hill to reach their small campground that is pretty much a flattened hill with gravel sites laid out. There was only one other RV there, so we just pulled into a site and settled in for the night. It was still raining really hard the next morning, and I had already pre-paid, so we just packed up and left early. I left a phone msg for the owners, but they never called back. Wasn't impressed and don't think we'll return if we can help it. - MarieB

First time here camping in our pop up. Stayed on site 19 which allowed plenty of room for our camper but backing in was a challenge. The drop off between the road and the campsite caused my rig to bottom out but we were able to finally get it in the site by very careful maneuvering. The bath house was fairly clean and there are doors on the shower stalls (mentioned in previous reviews that there were not). Beautiful park here with amazing trails and views. We will be back again. Did not see any travel trailers (would be a tight fit) and only about 3 pop ups. - jrackley

Very peaceful and relaxing. Lake beach nearby with various trails to waterfalls and lake with beach. Canoe rental. Diving platform in lake. Sandy bottom, clear water. Life guards on duty. Campfires permitted. Park gates lock at 9pm, so be aware that there is no getting out (or in) after 9pm until 7am the next morning. Keeps it quiet. Pull through sites are horseshoe shaped and limited. Road is paved and there is a camp host. Very nice area. - algriffith

We loved the hiking trails along with all the great waterfalls. The park itself is great and I would go back to the park multiple times. The campground is lacking water and electric which is a big turn off for me since I would like to take my 30 ft travel trailer. The restrooms / showers are very out-dated and showing their age. The showers don't have a changing room. Just a shower curtain that doesn't cover the stall opening. I personally don't care but the wife wouldn't quit "commenting" on it. I wish they would update the campground. If they did that, I would make it a regular trip each year with my travel trailer. The cabins are nice and has a full kitchen and air conditioning. - NC RV Travler

Rate is 50% national pass rate. No electric, water or sewer. No soap or towels in bathrooms. No showers. Sites are very tight for a motorhome, which are only allowed in loop "T". They have a new reservation system, and the host don't know what sites have been reserved, so you can't park in any site that is "reservable" without risk of being asked to leave if someone shows up for that site. This limits the options for where you can park, and most of the "reservable" sites were empty. Camp rules prohibit generator use from 9PM to 8AM. Bathrooms accessible. Not worth the money, would rather stay at Wal-Mart, at least we can run generator there, watch TV till late and make coffee at 6AM. - jtdtsams

I only rated it as a 9 because we pulled in to our reserved site Sunday about 3 and the rude people next door had their vehicles in our site. When I asked them to move, they huffed and puffed as though we were disturbing them. The following day the locals had left and the park was a place of glory. Site were spacious while some were rather close together. Our goal was to camp in Fairy Stone Park, but after visiting it and this park there is no question why we are glad we chose what we did. Would definitely return, just in June on the weekend. Reservations are a must. Good WiFi from our AT&T hotspot and cell service both with AT&T & Verizon. - garmp

Located on a point on Philpott Lake this is a very nice campground. We were on site 30 loop C, a very nice site once you get your trailer situated. This site is a bear to get into as there is a steel gate and gate post right in the area you need to maneuver. Site 29 across the road is the same, hard to get into. I took a side marker light off my 31' trailer getting in, but other than that I had no issues with the roads. The campground seems to be inhabited by lots of locals, which I suppose if I lived nearby I'd do the same. I made my reservations in February to get a site during the week in May, you can't get in on weekends they are all booked. There is a nice beach and boat ramp with a fairly large parking lot. To those of you with small children, some of the sites in loop C are not kid friendly as they have 15 to 20 sheer drops to the lake and this lake is extremely deep, even close to shore.
The restrooms were exceptionally clean. There are only 2 showers in each restroom. The dumpster is 1/2 mile up the hill, as is the dump station. There is another restroom at that location with more showers. - scjenk

We had to reserve our sites 6 months in advance. We camp at this up to eight weekends each summer. Park ranger are friendly and the site are large in size. One of the best lakes in the area for boating. - ciderman

Daddy Rabbit's is a campground in every sense of the word. It is secluded, rustic, wooded, hilly, gravel/dirt roads, and quiet. It is not difficult to get to, but you do have to drive down a couple of windy, narrow, country roads to get there. The staff is friendly. Closed in winter months, seasonal camping only. Group sites available. - MargaretL

The staff was excellent. When we pulled up with our 40 foot rig they were worried that the space we reserved wouldn't be big enough. Took my husband to another site and then to the one we reserved. We took the one we reserved because it had more privacy (we had 6 dogs). We barely got out both slides but my husband was able to maneuver the RV into position so we could. We couldn't fully extend the awning tho. We aren't used to having campers so close but everyone was respectful and quiet. Can't say enough good things about the staff. - LakeAnnaLabs

Due to extreme weather electric went out for a few hours. The gentleman working at the campground who had a generator offered and made my husband and I, a morning cup of coffee. Extremely appreciated gesture and represented the overall treatment by staff. Very impressed and will be back. Lots are spacious and offered some shade. Site surface was gravel and featured a fire ring and picnic table. - MMcCarthy

This is a great little campground. We stayed on the 50 amp loop. This loop seemed a little newer and the road was plenty wide to maneuver our 35 ft travel trailer. The other loop seemed a little tighter but there were some larger units down there. Our site was level side to side and it seemed to drain well as we got some rain everyday. The bathhouses are clean and modern. The boat launch for campers only was nice also. Both camper loops were full the weekend we stayed but it was very quiet and peaceful at night. The rangers and local police came through regularly. It was a great weekend trip for us and we will be doing this more often. - MX_470

What a great area. The corp of eng. should cut a few trees away from the roads so it would be easier to get in the sites ! Would be so many more campers and revenue if people could get there campers in easier !! We had a hard time getting in number 1 and 2. We went looking and several trees need to be gone to allow campers in overall after several attempts it was ok but the room we lost from the trees so close would have been a wonderful place to camp - Glenna boothe

Nice Army Corps campground on Phillpot Lake. Be aware that if you are in a motorhome or anything longer than 25ft do not travel to the lower sections of the campground. The roads are very tight and curvy. Lots of trees line the roads. We were in site 7, which is a pull through. Very tight for a 25ft trailer. Could not pull in, had to back in. Campground is very clean. The swimming beach is nice, but a good walk from the upper section. The lower section is mostly for tents and pop-ups with no water or electric. The upper bathhouse is the only one with showers, and there are only two. Make sure you bring what you need, because the campground has no store or supplies and the closest store is about 6 miles away. There is a boat ramp and two swimming beaches. We had a good time here and will return. - zeppy35
