“Serene Dry Camping on the Blue Ridge Parkway”

Reviewed Jun 25, 2018

Overall Rating

The location on the Blue Ridge Pkwy is excellent. It's a quick, less than 10 min drive to Blowing Rock. Loop A is right along the lake and in nice condition. Loop F is very basic, but quiet and beautiful. Our site was a pull-off style site that was easy to park our 29' class C into and had a very private picnic table area. I'd sta... more

We stayed here for two nights in early June. The campground was busy but not packed. There are no electric hook ups here. They have a brand new bathhouse that also has a dish washing station with hot water. Bathrooms are located throughout the loops, no lights and only Purell sanitizer available. (Take your own soap!) The B loop i... more

“Location, location, location!”

Reviewed May 30, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed in the RV section of the park. Our site was tight but had a reasonable amount of privacy due to the Rhododendron. The campground roads in the upper sections were in need of maintenance as were the sites themselves. Some tables were partially buried, most were covered in moss. The bathhouses were also worn. One in the upper te... more

“Great location right off the parkway, typical state park.”

Reviewed Nov 19, 2016

Overall Rating

We spent a couple of days here in late summer. Though it was crowded with lots of generators and kids on bikes, we still managed some peace and solitude every so often. The trail around the pond may have been crowded, but it did not diminish the beauty.

“Central location for access to cool towns and natural sights”

Reviewed May 22, 2016

Overall Rating

Basic dry camping CG. Not much to look at as you arrive but has what you need (a place to park, decent bathrooms as your black tank fills, some sites in the upper loop with solar exposure, dump station) plus access to beautiful spots like Grandfather Mountain (head to the top, $20/person, and cross the mile high suspension bridge), Lin... more

“A solid option while visiting the Blue Ridge Parkway.”

Reviewed May 14, 2016

Overall Rating

Affordable dry camping with picnic tables and fire pits. Good access to the parkway and nearby attractions like Grandfather Mountain and Boone. Also the Boone Trail is a beautiful hike that goes right through camp. The campground has two loops for RVs and a completely separate area for tenters. We preferred the first loop as it is mos... more
