Although we normally don't like to stay in parks witout 50amp power, we made an exception here. (If there had been 50amp, I would have rated the park "Excellent.") Things we loved about Stony Fork: Peace and quiet, forest camping, good space between campsites, nice trails, close enough to town to be convenient and far enough to forget there's a town 8 miles away! Some of the sites would be challenging for levelling a big rig like ours (40' motorhome), but there were plenty of sites that could work for big rigs. The hosts on our end of the loop were friendly and kept the bath house they were responsible for very clean.
We barely had room to park our little subcompact car on our site, but it wouldn't be a problem at some of the other sites. We selected our site because of the privacy it afforded. - MelBtraveln

Only an overnight stay but very pleased. The campground and sites were exceptionally clean and well maintained. All the sites were large and easy to get into and the price was sure right at $18 minus $6 for the National Parks senior pass. We went with electric only but did see some full service sites. Decent privacy between large pads, and most seem to back on streams winding through the campground. Beautifully wooded area and yet close enough to Wyethville to make supplies or suppers out easy. Paved to the campground and do a dsl and sites in the park are paved. We have saved this to our "visit again" list, likely as a meeting and camping place with family. - PeteandDeb

This is a beautiful national forest campground. Well manicured grounds. The bathhouses (a least two of them) were filthy. The showers had black mold growing on the wall. This was not stains, it was lack of cleaning. A shame for such a nice park. - PIgc

All gravel roads with some ruts and pot holes. The small sites had concrete pads, but the pad where we were was on the pinacle of a small hill, so the pad was flat but you had to climb up to it and climb down when leaving it, making it impossible to unhook or hook up a tow vehicle when parked. Utility hookups were good (although spaced fairly far apart), there was a picnic table, but if there had been motor homes in the adjacent sites, it would have seemed "crowded". Internet was spotty and not much use. - Don Gagnon

This is a very laid back, relaxing place to stay. The owner/operator is friendly and didn't bother you. Rules were reasonable. We were there late in the season, so the park wasn't very busy. The pool was closed. Laundry facility was excellent with newer washer/dryers. They have a arcade with a batting cage and a 6 lane bowling alley (for a fee) that was very nice. Pizza available with delivery to your RV. Nice wooded spaces on the back of the park. In the front of the park sites were much closer together but they seemed to be used for RV's that were just stopping for the night. Bathrooms and showers were well maintained and clean. Camp store was well stocked with reasonable prices. - Margie H

Very friendly staff. Lots ranged from spacious to very close. Sites are gravel and feature a fire ring. Great site for a quick overnight stop where sewer not required.
Owner noticed a problem emanating from our coach. Knocked on the door to point it out and tried to see if he could fix it. (Leaking HW pressure valve) Came back with a new one but unfortunately it was not the correct size.
Large games area with food and a bowling alley. - Our V World

Okay for an overnight stop if you don't mind driving for about 8 miles on back country roads with some low hanging branches. That being said, it was a very quiet stop since it is surrounded by forest. Nice stream through the campground. No cable, no over the air reception, no Verizon service. Campground was clean and there is a host that helps you park. Some spaces might be difficult to get in or out due to trees. - Bobco

Wonderful family friendly campground. Each site has its own picnic table and fire ring. My son loves the heated pool, fishing pond, and the game room. My husband and I love the nearby walking trails. The campground owners go out of there way to take care of their guest. We absolutely love this campground. - User3541

I'm afraid we can't give this place a good rating. For an over night stop, it is WAY off the highway, a good 10-15 minutes. Water pressure was awful. My Mr. Coffee drips faster. They advertize wi-fi but we could not get a signal at all. Also there is no cell service on Verizon. We paid for 50-amp but after a scary argument with another RV'er, we switched to 30 and let him have the 50. We were thrilled to leave. - excel14

Very nice park close to I-81 in Virginia. Very spacious and pretty setting with concrete pads. Would recommend this campground for quick stop or long term. Just a nice place overall! - mandolin57

Great overnight place when traveling on I81 all pull thrus that are mostly level. Quiet location. Was winter so did not use water or sewer. - hug448844

This year round park is a regular two night stop for us as we travel up and down I-81 and I-77. The staff are always friendly and do their best to meet any special requests. There were not many guests here this time, since it was January. The utilities were well placed for us, and our Verizon and AT&T cell services were strong. The free cable TV and WiFi both worked well. Our site had a clear view for our satellite dish. The park is very quiet, with just occasional truck noise from the nearby interstate. We will definitely be stopping here again. - NYDutch

I stayed at this campground just passing through on my way to North Carolina from Michigan. The first thing that struck me about this campground was the long, long, long hill you have to climb to get to it. There's a tiny building at the top of the hill where the camp hosts will meet you and check you in. They led me to my site and when they asked if I needed anything else,I said that the site wasn't quite level And I wondered if they had something else. Since I was just there for the night I didn't want to bother with leveling when I wasn't even disconnecting from my vehicle. Instead of offering to move me to one of the other many spots they were open, they told me that it was not a big deal that I was level enough. It was a big enough deal that I did level. They told me that they recommended that I put water in my tank rather than use the outside hose because it was predicted to get quite cold that night. I did as they suggested and they were right. It got down to 19° and I did have a freeze. Luckily no damage was done but it was quite frustrating. It did allow me to check out their bath house which was very nice and clean. The campground is in a lovely setting with huge green space, the size of several football fields, with a big pavilion and a long, lovely walk around the creek and a pavilion and play area, however the campsites themselves are right on top of each other with no trees or anything to separate them. The utilities were easy to use, although I didn't use the sewer because I was just passing through for the night and didn't need it. They had cable but I could not get it to work, I don't know if it was my hook up or what but that did not work for me. They had Wi-Fi and I was able to use that. - Donna In GR

Nice sized pull thrus, level side to side, includes cable tv, decent wifi. Really nice looking campsite with a creek running across the back. Only negative is highway noise but that quiets down at night, never stopped us from sleeping. Nice camp hosts, will lend you cable for tv if you don't have one.
Nicely located for side trips sight seeing and shopping for necessities. - papaken

If you are looking for a great little park on a beautiful but small lake. This is the place for you. Now a few words of caution. Big rigs will not be able to get into it. One review says a 35 foot fifth wheel made the turn down the hill into the park. He was probably a very seasoned driver. The road from downtown Pulaski goes through a residential area that goes up a big winding hill and the road is very narrow. Once you get past the residential area it's another 6 miles to the campground at the most 35 mph. AT&T cell service is none existent but I'm told that Verizon works sometimes. Obviously there is no WIFI. The park has about 2 dozen Canadian geese year round and they are noisy and very messy, pooping everywhere. Another issue is that some of the locals that come in for the weekend and bring their dogs do not leash them. We found some of these dogs are big and act aggressive. They also do not clean up after them either. So if you want to stay here do it Monday and leave Thursday or Friday. We liked the park and the restrooms were clean and the staff friendly. This lake has a boat launch area but only trolling motors are allowed. They are limited on large campsites and you cannot make reservations. It is a first come first serve park. When we were there it is cash only. Outside of the no cell or WIFI we enjoyed our 4 night stay here. Our site was long enough for our 32 foot trailer and crewcab F250. It was a gravel site but pretty level. - Bill from Texas

This park is beautiful especially during the week when they have fewer campers. Only 5 people using it for most of the week we were here. Locals fill it up pretty good on the weekends. Lots of small campers and tents. The park is about 30 minutes from any stores or services. That 30 minute drive from Pulaski is on roads that are pretty narrow. It would be tough in many spots to pass another larger RV without slowing to a crawl (if at that). Just before you get to the campsites, is a very steep left turn and you need to take care not to run into a ditch. Our 5th wheel is 32 feet and someone with a 35 foot 5th wheel made it in also. I'm told they don't get many motorhomes due to length. All that being said, I think we liked the park more than any other we have been in. It's a beautiful place. - srfnut

Because we live nearby, we have camped here many times. It's a beautiful and peaceful campground that is pretty much out in the middle of nowhere. The sites are generally spacious and level, and include a concrete pad, fire ring and picnic table. There is one bathhouse in the campground which is very old but is adequately clean. Metal fishing boats are available to rent for a small charge. There is a playground for the kids but no swimming area or other amenities. Although it's a lovely campground, unless you enjoy fishing there's really not much to do here but enjoy the scenery. - kitten4762

This is a small park owned and managed by one of the friendliest and helpful hosts I've run across. The park is very quiet. The spaces are all large and easily accessible even with larger rigs. The sites are gravel as are the roads. The wifi was excellent but Verizon cell coverage here is pretty poor. Access to the New River Trail State Park is nearby and you can jump on the trail in a number locations very convenient to the park.
This owner obviously prides himself in the park looking nice, neat and clean. The restroom/shower was spotless. Would definitely stay again. - TLL

This campground is lovely, clean, quiet and well kept. The owner goes the extra mile to make you feel welcome. He even helped us set up and arrived at 6:30 AM to help us hook back up when we left as he knew we were not very familiar with the process.
The two private baths are spacious and spotless. The fact that the campground is in the "holler" seems to keep it a bit cooler than the surrounding area in the summer.
We loved the campground, Fries, the New River Trail and the old time music. A great place to get away from the rat race!
Note: If you stay in site #7 it is like having your own private restroom/shower. - Ginny1

Great small park with wonderful owners. Lots to do in the area. Camped in a 45 foot motorhome. Suggest you call the owners, when you get near to get specific directions. We also disconnect our toad in Galax with the toad preceding the RV talking radios to make sure traffic is clear at the curves.
Verizon cell phone service is not good. You can activate WiFi on your smart phone using the parks WiFi to make and receive calls.
Attend the Fries jam on Thursday nights in the town recreation buildings for a great taste of old timey and mountain music. - eaglessoc

Nice setting with all the amenities: pools, mini golf, game room, laundry, etc., but minimally maintained. Not as nice as the photos.
Kids everywhere. Park is used as a field trip destination for local daycares and schools. - WendyJayne

We stayed 5 nights. The staff was very friendly, and helpful. The only down side is that they could use better WiFi system. The best spot to pick it up is around the office and pool areas. Due to the area the campground is in, it's a bit hilly. The grounds are well kept. There are plenty of things for the kids do. The only "Cell Phone" service available is Verizon, due to the campground's location. - md_procouple

This "resort" is part of the Legacy Resort network. It is outside of Hillsville reached by a series of country roads. The driveway in has a fork in the road, straight ahead for the office and right turn to the lower sites lot, none of which is marked by sign and to further confuse you they put a check-in type guard shack offset toward the left fork, which invites you to go right to look for office, find none at the lower site lot, then go back to other fork. And the dirt roads at the lower site lot are horribly rutted and pot-holed, great for driving a 40' + a toad on. Once at the office, we found the upper lot consisted mostly of member lots (they actually buy their lots) and the lower lot was for transient campers such as us. It took us 3 different lots to find one that would not hit "excessive slope" on our leveling jacks. And the one we were able to level on had duct tape wrapped around the water spigot, which, when turned on, created a fountain the leak was so bad. The bathrooms and showers looked like a remodel that was stalled in-progress, fairly fresh tile but buckling walls, no baseboards. Needless to say, we were not happy with this one and will not return, ever. - rvrrat520

The park is small, quiet, clean, and well laid out. Nicely shaded with easy access to towns, highways, attractions. A famous hiking trail is accessible directly from the campground. The camp host is very helpful and knowledgeable; he is also very watchful, in a quiet, non-intrusive way. I stayed about 10 days...hated to leave. Oh! There is NO TV or cell reception, but has great Internet! I can't wait to return. The camp host helps pick the best site for you & your rig. They are not all level, but very manageable. - Linda 2

Previous post was correct except you can use the showers at the nearby Hurricane Campground, no charge, if you are staying at another forest service park. - Travelingjim!

This is a small campground in Jefferson National Forest. It is fine for hiking, trout fishing, or just to relax, not much else around. Our rate was with the Senior Pass. Our site, as was most, was unlevel in both directions, I used two complete sets of Lynx leveler blocks, (20 blocks) & still never got level. Ours was in partial shade, & grassy, with electric and water hookups. Wi-Fi is available in the electric sites, and it was not very strong, but that was fine by me. The host was friendly and helpful. The electric sites back up to Route 16, which is much busier & noisier than I would have thought. This is obviously an older campground, as evidenced by the obvious lack of emphasis by the Forest Service, I assume because of the small size. The bathrooms were relatively clean, but need remodeling. There are NO showers, the nearest are 5.5 miles away at Hurricane campground, which requires an entry fee, plus $2.00 per person per shower. The streams at the rear of the campground are a nice touch. I doubt we would stay here again, with nicer, bigger campground just a little ways down the road. - bukhrn

A major, mechanical break-down on I-77 turned us into temporary full-time residents at the Carrollwood RV Park, waiting for a new axle and related parts. Their weekly rate is $108 with a monthly rate of $300 (plus tax).
The CG is a grassy, hill-side knoll with back-in, pull-thru, and tent sites but none of them are very long. The CG was built back in the days when a "big rig" was a 30' travel trailer. Parking our 40' fiver was tricky. Big coaches and Prevosts need not bother. Sites are uneven grass, not very level, varying from basic, no utilities, up to FHU-30/50. Lots of tall, old growth trees and narrow, gravel-and-dirt roads in the park. Asphalt roads from the entrance to the office. There are cabins for rent. Office is usually closed but there is a phone number to the camp host. Office has some soft-drinks and snacks and a few RVing necessities. Two ponds offer fisherpersons their happy time. No pool/spa or other amenities. A very old, open-air barn is rented out for parties, weddings, and the like. I inspected the men's restroom/showers and would not use them. Ex-laundry room is now a storage locker. - StephenK

This was our first time in our new Montana and the first time in an RV camp ground. Has the nicest and most helpful owners. He guided us to our level site and helped with the hook ups. It is a quiet, beautiful and peaceful area. We would return. - Frances Ann

This park was cooler than the other areas we visited in the east. Lots of nice pine trees. Very tight narrow turn by office to get to sites. Big rigs and motor homes with toads would have great difficulty. We had to back up a few times to get into that narrow road. Not much room to swing around to get in straight. The park has NO water pressure. You would have trouble taking a shower or doing anything with water. Mentioned to office lady and she said they had 35 pounds of water pressure. Most RV parks have more than that! All we got was a very small stream out of the faucets. - dustytuu
