Park entrance is not far from interstate, but the eastbound exit intersection is confusion corner. Lots of roads going different directions, so you have to make some snap judgements quickly. I followed the GPS, and it was accurate, for once. The clerk at the RV park had also given me directions on the phone, so the two combined helped. Call to get directions.

Speed bumps that dot the main entrance road into the park were the "shake everything in the coach type." I can never understand why park owners do this to their guests.

No escort to site after check-in so when we arrived at our site, another RV was already there. This required a walk in the rain to get another site assignment. Young man at desk didn't seem overly concerned or apologetic that I was inconvenienced and soaking wet.

Our gravel site was wide enough and level. Some grass in between and some shade. There were also concrete sites without shade. Hookups were well placed and worked well. Cable had all the best channels. Wi-Fi worked until campground filled up on the weekend and then connection was screeching halt. I didn't check out the pool, restrooms, or laundry, but they were available.

This isn't the most attractive campground, but it's good for several days, especially if you are out seeing the sights in area. Lots of graveyard junk in the storage row behind us. Campground seemed to be at capacity on the weekend, so book in advance. We'd stay again. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Several museums in the area. Grocery shopping about 6 miles away. Fuel very close. Beautiful area.

Great spot for a couple of days or an overnight stop. Nice long level sites with good 50 amps. Good turning radius in park. Sites have 1 tree each which did not interfere with satellite reception. We would definitely come back here. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

OK for a stop when passing by. Utilities worked well except cable was real grainy. Sites not too level but it worked. Place pretty empty and have a few long termers but park is clean. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Park has easy access to I-81 and I-77. It had just rained and the sites were muddy. Also not level. Some of the sites had concrete pads but they were all occupied. There was a lot of junk stored near the front of the park which distracted from the overall appearance. Park is good for an overnight and we would return. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

CG is located between two pastures on a level area. Fairly spacious sites. Fills up on Friday evenings. Mostly fivers and class A's. Very helpful and friendly young lady in the office. Easy sites to get in and out. Close to I-81. All sites looked to have concrete awning pads. One row of full concrete drive and pads. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here (1) night. Easy on/off I 81. Office help was friendly and efficient. Restrooms / Showers were very clean. Sites fairly level and the park was full. Would definitely stay there again. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Probably a good idea to call ahead when staying. We did and it was a good thing as the park was close to full.

Nice long pull thru site with full hook ups & cable, good water pressure. Nice campground with level sites hook ups near the front of the site which is different then most other campgrounds but not bad. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We got there very late and had no problem finding it and finding a site. We arrived after the office closed and they said to just pull in and find a place. We pulled in and found a nice pull through site next to rest rooms. Very easy to pull in and hook up. Restrooms were very clean and warm ( it was 10 degrees outside). The location is great. I am giving it a nine because of the ease of getting in and setting up, clean restrooms, and reservations went off without an issue. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Chiswell is one of our regular planned stops anytime we're in the area traveling on I-81 or I-77. The park is less than a mile from I-81, but just over ridge that blocks the traffic noise. The rural setting is very peaceful, with cows in the surrounding pastures. The lower dog walk area is spacious and has a bridge that crosses a small creek to another large area. Very pleasant! The park WiFi works well, as does the park cable system. Most sites have a good satellite view, and Verizon cell voice and data service are both strong. The sites are reasonably level, either gravel or concrete pads, and the utilities are well placed. We fully expect to return here many times. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Wytheville is just a couple of miles away, with many restaurants, shopping centers, etc. The I-81 exit for the park has a Flying J with a Blue Beacon truck wash, and other fuel stops are nearby. There is a small strip mall just before turning into the park that has a Chinese restaurant, a laundromat, a DIY car wash, and a few other shops.

I'm rating this from strictly an overnight stop perspective. The park is very close to I-81 access and well signed making it easy to find. The pull-thru sites had concrete pads to park on which was a plus. I would definitely recommend this as a good overnight stop. Price was"good", but not great for an overnight service. Didn't care for the speed bumps. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

We have used this as an overnight stop many times and have never been disappointed. The campground is clean, the staff friendly and helpful, hookups all work well, and the grounds are well kept. It is an easy on / off from 81 /77 with a Flying J right at the exit. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice convenient park right off of I-81 at Max Meadows, VA for a quick overnight stay. Sites are gravel and level with full hook-ups. Very convenient to a Pilot Truck Stop for fueling and a Denny's for breakfast. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.
