The lake is pretty. In a nice neighborhood. Probably great fishing. RV park is not somewhere I would stay.

Lake Linville Campground was worse than horrible, did not stay there after a brief drive thru. Few electric hook ups. No water that I saw. No gravel on spots. No fire rings. Maybe 2 picnic tables if that. no grills. Goose dodo every where. Nasty but close to the lake :)
