9 RV Parks near Roanoke, West Virginia

Very difficult to judge. On one hand, the property is very well run by very friendly, accommodating staff. But the devil is in the details. Every morning the guy who empties your individual trash can (nice), ran out of newspapers before he got to my site (not nice). The resort boasts a wonderful restaurant (nice), that was closed the night we wanted to go "because we forgot that we had already booked a private party" (not nice). The resort has a nice little boat that takes guests around the lake (nice), that was out of service when we were there (not nice). The resort fee of $15 per day per site will allow you to use the pool (nice), but it cannot guarantee that maintenance will not be power washing the apron of the pool area, all day, for two days straight in anticipation of the holiday weekend (not nice). That being said, nice resort, nice location, nice staff, nice, nice, nice. Just bad timing I guess. - monkeypants

This is a VERY nice campground. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. All roads are asphalt with paved camp sites. Plenty of space at each site. Gravel patio area with picnic table and fire ring. Beautiful view of the lake, golf course and trees. Very well maintained grounds throughout the park. - Dedra C

This park is part of a huge complex with a golf course, marina, restaurants and more. Some I spoke to, said this park was their summer vacation destination. Many of the campsites have excellent views of the lake. Many were on the lake kayaking and fishing. It is a very friendly park from staff to campers.
We were on site 39. It was the last available site. We drove in without a reservation and got lucky. Our site was large enough that I didn't have to unhook the tow vehicle for an over night stay. We liked the fact that each campsite had its own trash receptacle. The site was paved with a gravel area with picnic table and fire ring. The site was very spacious with grass surrounding it. Utilities were excellent and well located. - petendoll

We pulled in at the end of a rainstorm - sun just coming out - fresh-cut grass - trees-in-bloom-smells...glad we sucked it up and made the impromptu commitment to do the 5 miles of nowhere-to-turn-around-anyway hardball road. The previous reviews were spot-on, however we saw the road as a welcome respite, after the 50+ miles of uphill and hard rain. Four any-size pull-throughs, but would avoid the one with no gravel yet (we were the only ones in the place on a Thursday nite); full hookups all four. There are 42 numbered sites - all grass except 1-3; gravel roads in good repair, a throw-'em-back fishing pond, two cabins, and a playground for smaller kids (pool not on line at this date). Wife and I enjoyed a nice walk, and the wife got her "pet-the-animal fix" with the two Shetland ponies. Most of the sites have fire rings, tables, electric, water; some are tents-only. We really enjoyed this VERY quiet place; would be a good campground to take the kids on a week / weekend campout - no wifi, and plenty to do. - johngalt

This was a nice quiet park in a wonderful setting. Lots of green grassy areas to play in and to walk the dog. The parking areas for the pull-thrus was gravel and fairly level. We had no problem with our DirecTV satellite dish locking on to a signal. The owner was friendly and helpful. My only complaint about this park is the 5 mile drive on the paved road to get to it, once you leave the main highway. The road is smooth, but it is very narrow. There are also no shoulders but a sharp drop-off on the road edge. It is also very hilly with lots of curves. For most of the 5 mile drive, the road lanes are too narrow for a normal size class A coach. I was fortunate in that we only encountered two cars on our entering and leaving the park. With the trees on either side, it would have been very difficult for two RV's to pass without damage. I really did like this park, but that 5 mile drive could be a problem. - rgatijnet

We found this campground to be very clean, quiet, and relaxing. It is a beautiful setting in the mountains of West Virginia with very friendly and helpful owners who live on the premises. There is a hiking trail on the property, streams running through the grounds, a small pond for fishing, a pavilion with picnic tables, and a small play area for the children. The pool was clean but it is an oval above the ground pool. Good for young children only. The sites are grass and have some trees for shade. Many campers had boats and took them to Stonewall Jackson Lake for the day. The only negative remark we have regarding this campground is that the road to it is very narrow and windy so one must be very careful driving. We will return to this campground for another relaxing and enjoyable stay. - cleo1948

Honor system to pay. We should have looked for site & then paid. Only 1 loop open out of season. All back ins. Some FHU. Sites on lake Electric only. On gravel with grass between plenty of room between sites. Some shade. No cell (Verizon). Very peaceful. - jcpjane

Cleanest and most up to date restrooms of any park we have been. Bulltown is a beautiful park sitting on the lake. A lot of Civil War history. The "Battle of Bulltown" actually took place within the campground. One word of advice- Do Not Come in from the North. - Bamagolfer

This is a nice campground if you love LOTS of screaming kids and LOTS MORE barking dogs. We have a dog, so not a sour grapes person, and we also camped in the pet section. That said, some brought as many as 3-4 dogs, had pens set up, some let the dogs run loose, we even saw a Rottweiler running loose in the campground. Strange, because the sheriff patrols the CG several times a day as does the park ranger, especially on the weekends. We really liked the campground even though the sites in C loop (pet section also) were very close together along the back side away from the lake, which is where we were camping. The water was brown most of the time, we had to run it for a minute or so to clear it up, this we did several times a day. Now, even after all that, we would come back to this CG, probably leave the dog home and camp in the "no pet" section. The view of the lake is very nice from most of the campsites, and if you boat or fish, you will like this campground. We see the signs for the "recovery act" everywhere here. We can see where the money went, not to improve the grave sites, but they put in some of the biggest nicest playground equipment we have ever seen. Granted, the kids need nice play toys, just not sure that our tax dollars should have gone to that extreme, maybe some new campsites on top of the hill overlooking the campground would be lovely, or improving the volunteers campsites, which were rustic at best. I mentioned that, because you can use them if the volunteers are not utilizing them, however, they are not near the lake. If they get a grip on the dog situation and if people get a grip on their kids from screaming from 8am to 9 pm. I literally mean screaming kids, we were at the far end of the playground and we could hear them just fine. This would be a really nice campground for people who love the lake and the beauty of the surroundings. - buffy

This is a very peaceful and clean campground. We have camped here every year since 2005 and they have made wonderful improvements over the years from only having water and electric to full hookups and they have recently added beautiful over flow sites. This campground has 2 wonderful playgrounds, one for younger children one for older children. - Val Melton

Campground is on lake with a dam but no sites are lake view. Interior road is paved but sites are gravel and grass. Has picnic table, fire ring and lantern pole at each campsite. Has bath houses but did not visit them.
No reservations accepted. Honor system for payment. Senior pass was $15 per night for 50 amp. full hookups! For us, in a 40 foot motorhome coming in site unseen, we were very apprehensive. But it turned out very well.
Verizon wifi and cell access non existent but depending upon which side of the road and which site you are on, Direct TV was fine for us in Site 21.
Only 3.5 miles from I-79 at exit 79! Great place to overnight but would not consider it for a destination. Reason for high rating was easy access from interstate, price and hookups for the price. No shopping close by but saw the 79er restaurant at exit 79 off of I-79!!! - eaglesfan

Inexperienced clerk slightly overcharged us and the manager chased us down to give us a $1 back! Shower room being painted. Very picturesque spot. Lot spacing was spacious and mostly shady. Site surface was gravel. Restrooms and showers were clean. - FrankRogers

This is a place for a one night stop right off the interstate and nothing more. You don't need a reservation. Just show up. There is no WiFi or cable and we couldn't get DirecTV because of the trees. This was the first time in all my RVing that I couldn't get even one channel on the TV. That being said, our site was roomy and fairly level with a pine straw service. There are no sewers. When we were leaving we went to the end of the road and it was just a turnaround so we came back and left through the entrance. I didn't see a dump station, but they advertise one. I think any rig larger than our 34' Class A would have trouble on the turnarounds. - RVerMJ

Staff very friendly and helpful. There are a lot of resident campers but that didn't bother us. Site was a bit tight but we managed to get our 4 slides out. I would imagine it could be a bit muddy in the rain. RV park is very quiet. We found it ideal for an overnight stay. - PhaetonCouple

Must go to park. Very nice. Was just after the flood but was cleaned and ready to go. - Robert and stacy

This was another two night stop as we traveled from our summer volunteer position in Connecticut back home to Texas.
Long drive down a windy state highway. No problems, but take it slow.
Excellent site in main CG loop - #106. Very helpful staff. CG was flooded in spring 2015, yet in excellent shape in October for our visit.
As mentioned - remote with no cell coverage.
Sutton Lake at the CG looks more like a river. CG is very near the upper limit of the lake.
Despite 17 mile drive in, and out from interstate, a great overnight stop, and likely a great destination for fishermen. - PawPaw

We stayed in site 39 by the river in our 37 ft Winnebago, with 50 amp/water/sewer connections. The park is lovely and well-maintained. Lots of green space where families were playing games. Our campsite was paved and shaded in the evening by a large tree. Some sites are shaded and some aren't. Fairly level sites. Hwy 15 to the campground is somewhat challenging with hills and sharp curves, but certainly doable. We didn't use any of the facilities. The reason for a 4 star rating instead of 5 is that unfortunately, our site was littered with trash and cigarettes. I would stay here again and would recommend. - Donna and Steve

I should have read the previous reviews before arriving! Like others, we got to the KOA entrance gate in our motorhome with tow car and saw the sign saying not to enter until checking in at the Days Inn Hotel. Unable to back up or turn around, we did a loop through the campground and back to the hotel parking lot. There are no RV check-in lanes and the hotel parking lot was fairly crowded, so we just pulled across two parking spaces and blocked one of the aisles while checking in. Also as others have mentioned, although the KOA is not far from the interstate, the road to get there is steep and has some sharp turns. Inside the campground the roads are narrow with some steep hills possible (depending on which section you're in). Our site was sloped so we could not get our motorhome level with just the jacks and had to add some blocks under our low wheels. The sites are mostly pull-throughs, with a few back-ins. Our pull-through was plenty long and wider than average for a KOA, with a gravel pad, grass lawn, picnic table, and BBQ grill. The area was pretty with lots of trees and hills. We were only there for one night but never saw any KOA staff in the campground. They did have free WiFi that was slow but worked fine for basic usage. Verizon and AT&T both had strong service. We might use this KOA again as an overnight stop but will first look into what other options are available. - LifeRebooted

Very nice, spacious campground. Sites are gravel and feature a fire ring and picnic table.
Little difficult to find but would stay here again. Stayed overnight. - 20165thwheel

First, to register you must drive up to the top of a hill, the road is narrow and has curbs, yes, curbs which can be clipped if not very careful. The road leading down into the campground is asphalt and very narrow, steep, and curvy. Did not enjoy that drive and especially when exiting, very steep, narrow and curvy...
The campgrounds is well kept, large trees, and grass, concrete patios, and picnic tables. There is good spacing between sites. Full hookups worked good. You have access to all the amenities of the hotel, i.e., the pool, fitness, center, dining. We camped in 43 ft RV with tow. We would stay here again . Site was NOT level. - ritag

Have camped at baker's run several times in recent years. Park is very clean, and friendly. We like full hook-ups that are limited; especially by those that spend the entire summer there, working with the army-corps-of-engineers. Roads could use some widening and repairs. - pam efaw

Beautiful 77-site Corps park on Elk River / Sutton Lake. 14 mi. east of Sutton on narrow winding road. We had no trouble with 37 ft. rig towing a pickup truck. Some full hookup 50 amp, some 30, some electric only, some no-hookup sites. Prices from $20. -$28. - travelingjim1

This a Corps of Engineers (COE) campground part of the Lake Sutton facility. This is 14 miles into the woods until you get to a very nice campground. However, the roads leading to the campground are very narrow, steep and winding. Our 31' C was at the max of size in my opinion. Level sites, waterfront, great bathhouses, friendly people, but oh those roads getting in. Use care if you go - Rich Pratt

This is one of the most well-kept parks we have camped in regularly. The sites are large it's quiet and wooded and beautiful. We camp there often especially early in the year when you get your State Senior Discount. The staff is friendly and helpful. We will continue to camp there often. Only down side is no cell service. It's a small price to pay for the beautiful and peacefulness of the area. - Dremdude

Beautiful Park. Somewhat of a hidden gem. It takes a while to get there so it.feels like you driving forever. Heavily wooded campground makes for great shade. It appeared to be a very well kept park. Fire rings were all cleaned out and flipped up. Bathrooms & showers were clean but dated. Could stand to be updated. Good electricity and lots of water pressure....maybe even on the high side (?). Lots of families camping but still was nice and quiet. Will camp here again for sure. - cwooz

My family and I visited as a quick trip to try out our new camper. All the facilities were clean and well kept. They offered many free activities for the family- hay rides, stream stomps, hikes, etc. Sites were roomy with gravel and grass, most were shaded. Rangers were friendly and helpful. - srichards
