This park was just "OK" overall. The staff were friendly and helpful. The park is one of the older ones in VA and you can tell. We stayed at Hungry Mother earlier in the summer and we were quite impressed. This park just wasn't that great. They Lake is a half a mile hike from the campground downhill on a muddy trail. At least it was muddy when we were there. That being said the lake front is nice. The beach area is well manicured and there is a nice section for the kids to play. The platform with diving board was closed while we were there. We were told it was because of the lack of visibility in the water. It's a mountain lake so I'm not sure how great the visibility can be. Anyway, a good place to visit for the day, I wouldn't stay longer than a weekend. We camped at Fairy Stone State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Make sure you have everything you need when you arrive. There are no stores to speak of nearby. The campground sites are very tight. We were fortunate to find one when we arrived that we would fit in. It's not big rig friendly.

This is a very nice park. Lots of shade. Sites are very small. Some tent pads are only a few feet from the next. The sites without tent pads (Green card) are some of the smallest. Several sites are not suitable for motorhomes of any size. The water and electric service was good. Our Verizon service was adequate to stream some movies. The sites need some updates. In particular: broken pavement, stumps, roots.

The camp host was very helpful and attentive. Firewood was not available in the campground and must be brought from the park office. The bathhouse has been recently rebuilt and is nice and clean. It did run out of hot water sometimes.

Terrific beach on the lake and good fishing areas. Very pet friendly. Several nice hiking trails. I would go back if I could be sure to get a site suitable for motorhome. We camped at Fairy Stone State Park in a Motorhome.

We had water at the site which was fantastic, and the dump station was nearby which made gray water disposal very easy. This park was absolutely beautiful and we had a blast with the kids finding fairy stones (we found a ton). The sites themselves were spaced very well, offered privacy, were easy to pull into, and were clean and orderly when we arrived. The beach area was also fantastic and we enjoyed an entire afternoon splashing around. There are climbable water features, a water slide, diving board, etc. We loved our stay and had a great time during the 3 days we were there. We camped at Fairy Stone State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Rangers at check-in were very friendly and helpful. Campground is at the top of a hill, so easy to ride bike to beach but very hard riding back. Can ride bike easily around campground. Going to the beach is far, thus a vehicle is needed. Beach is very nice and roomy. Campsites are level, shaded, and clean. Water pressure in showers was low but adequate. Can cut fallen wood near campsites. Good cellular reception and TV station selection. We camped at Fairy Stone State Park in a Motorhome.

Pretty CG in the woods. Lots of hills to climb to get here. Our site was level but many were on a slope. Electrical and water were good; dump was fine. Bathrooms are pretty old and need some work but there was hot water in the shower and a wall heater in the bathroom. No host but helpful rangers at the visitor center. Verizon air card had four bars! Lake looked like it would be fun in the warmer weather. We camped at Fairy Stone State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a lovely little campground. It’s close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, and has an area where you can hunt for the fabled Fairy Stones (behind Hayne’s gas station on Route 57: 2.5 miles from the park.) We used this as an overnight stop, and wish we could have had more time to swim in the lake. We camped at Fairy Stone State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a beautiful old park that may be best visited preseason or postseason, as we did. Definitely only suitable for the smallest rigs. There were only a few other campers in the campground, very spread out, which made it quiet and extremely pleasant. Looking at the configuration of the campsites, which are all on one loop, I would expect it to feel very crowded in the summer when the beach and other amenities are open, and the campsite population is high. One of the staff told us that you can usually always get a site during the week, but that reservations are always preferred and are necessary on weekends when the beach is open. Nice hiking trails, and you do have to hike or drive to the beach from the camping area. Cabins looked wonderful and have lake views. We will try one of those next time. We camped at Fairy Stone State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a quiet and peaceful park, about 12 miles west of Collinsville, VA off VA-57. Park has a nice beach area. Cabins and cabin area are in a separate setting with large trees, cleared of underbrush. The RV and tent campgrounds are different. Those campsites are small, many too small for motorhomes or large campers. Campground is overgrown with trees and underbrush. It is above the lake, but with no views and no breeze! It is so overgrown, that smoke from campfires is a respiratory issue. Otherwise: the bath-house is nice, and the roads and sites are paved. All sites have electric, water, picnic tables and fire rings. A few of the sites are pull-through, but are too tight for larger RVs. We stayed here for 4 days. Due to the small sites and the smoke issue, I would look elsewhere next time. This is unfortunate, because the park is nice. We camped at Fairy Stone State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fairy Stone State Park is about 10 miles west of Bassett, VA, turn off VA-57 onto VA-346. This is a beautiful state park, with great accommodations in the cabins and a very nice beach area. It is quiet, peaceful and heavily wooded. Park staff and rangers were nice and helpful. Staff also leads daily organized activities, including a day with a hunt for the fairy stones. The RV Campground roads and all sites are paved. Campground itself is surprisingly small and overgrown: no view of the lake below and no breezes. Camper sites tend to be small and most are “tight” due to trees. All sites are shaded, have picnic tables, fire rings, water and electric. Some sites also have a tent pad. A portion of the sites are pull through, even so, most of these work best with smaller rigs. Only about one-third of the sites can accommodate campers of 30 ft or longer and leave room for the tow vehicle. Bathrooms were good and kept clean. We stayed here for 3 days. Due to site size and cost, I would probably look elsewhere before staying here again. We camped at Fairy Stone State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Virginia State Parks are top notch. The campsites at Fairy Stone are good size and the natural vegetation provides some privacy. The camp hosts were great. Bathroom facility old but always clean. Nice gift shop at Park office but no camping supplies offered. The beach area at lake was spotless, as were all the facilities. Will be back again and again. We camped at Fairy Stone State Park in a Motorhome.

we enjoyed our stay at Fairy Stone. Facilities were always clean and well kept. We saw many rangers patrolling and helping if needed. Lake swimming was nice and had lifeguards present. Check-in area was a little tight but manageable. We camped at Fairy Stone State Park in a Motorhome.
