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. We camped at Deer Trail Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Clean, pleasant campground. Gravel roads and campsites. Site was level without need for leveling jacks. Swimming pool was open until 11:00 PM to allow late arrivals an opportunity to use all facilities. Good service from staff. We stayed only one night but wished we had more time to spend there.

Although this campground is very nice, I still enjoy some amenities and I look for them. Once we arrived, in the pouring rain, we settled in and with nothing much to do, tried our TV. No signal, and there is no cable hook up. We were promised Wifi, but that signal is very, very weak atour campsite, which was D-2. And the cell signal for our phones is awful. (That you can't bame on the CG). This is a very nice, small park, with a stream running thru it. It lies just on the fringe of the National Forest, so it is very secluded and surrounded by nature. We arrived on a Monday for just one night and didn't see many children, although there seems to be a lot of things for kids to do. The Rec Room was pretty neat, open air with pool table and tables for relaxation. We camped at Deer Trail Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here about 6-7 times. There were several campers that did 6 months setups there who were really nice and helpful. They made you feel at home and helped you if you needed it. The problems were the water stinks like sewer. I would not drink it or use it to cook with. No cell signal. However, the biggest problem I found was the owners' daughter would creep around when it got dark and hide to spy on you and listen to your conversations then report back to her parents. I felt really uncomfortable with her listening and spying on me. Overall it is a beautiful campground that has a lot of potential. They need to do something about the water and let their daughter know she can not do the things she is doing. I will not camp there anymore due to their daughter.

I felt obligated to review this park after reading the other reviews. This place is absolutely wonderful. No, there is no cell service. The Wi-Fi is really weak. I am a full-timer, and I also appreciate these amenities, but this place has a ton of shaded, woodsy spots, is great for peace and quiet, and the family who runs the place could not be nicer. If you want a family friendly place to hang out for awhile, this is the place. It is far from the freeway, but it is the nicest park in town.

Beautiful campground but has a few problems. I had to ask to get information on different things like internet. Most camps explain these things. The site we had required us to drive under a big tree. I like shade, but having the large branches scrape over the top of the RV was a bit worrying. The site was on grass, which was OK since it was dry, but could be difficult if wet. In the morning I looked to see if there was a shower/bathrooms since that wasn't mentioned. It appears they were here, but they were padlocked! We camped at Deer Trail Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed overnight. We came in late and left early the next morning. It seemed to be a fairly nice park from what we could see. The only problem we had was we share the water spigot with the neighboring site which was empty thank goodness. Luckily I had 2 water hoses I could put together to reach it. But someone in the middle of the night turned it off not sure why never had that happen before. We camped at Deer Trail Park Campground in a Motorhome.
The owners were very friendly and very eager to please. Not having access to our cell phone was a major problem. Had to drive to Wal-Mart to use the cell phone. We were going to stay for the summer but it was too primitive for us. Otherwise a nice place. We camped at Deer Trail Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The owners here are lovely, but the sites really need some updates. We were beside a TT and both of us could not both be doing our hookups at the same time. Very, very tight. Barely was able to get my slides out. Site was a pull through and was supposed to accommodate a rig with a toad. We barely made it, rear end of car was out on the road by a wee bit. Was concerned someone was going to hit us. Sites are not level, we could have pulled forward more, but it dropped down considerably. We were escorted to our site, a nice touch. Has a really nice fenced dog park. We would camp here again though as a 1 night stopover. We camped at Deer Trail Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Very friendly folks. A bit confusing on the site locations and getting in and out of some sites. Level areas and lots of shade. Be sure to bring extra lengths of water hose - some of the sites share with their neighbor. Roads are flat so it is good for walking, no golf cart needed. Nice area for dog walking. Wi-Fi worked well. We camped at Deer Trail Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
This campground is 8 miles north of Wytheville but worth the drive. We were able to camp right next to the creek that runs through the park. There is lots of shade. For big rigs, you can make it into the park but have to be very careful. At one point there are two pines that you go between and it is a very tight fit. The Wi-Fi was excellent and the people very friendly and helpful. Each evening after dark on our drive back to the park, we saw deer grazing along the road. The park is more on the rustic side, horses are even welcome. I gave this a park a 6 rating because it did not have paved road or sites. But it is a very nice laid-back park and more with the mountain/cowboy feel. We would stay here again. We camped at Deer Trail Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
