This is a nice National Park Service campground. Limited funding for the National Park Service means that the amenities are limited, but you can't beat the location along the Blue Ridge Parkway. There are no hookups (electric, water, sewer) at the individual sites, but there are restrooms with flush toilets (which we did not use because we have a trailer).... More

Having spent a considerable amount of time in our North Carolina state parks, I expected the same caliber of professionalism and cleanliness from this federal park on the Blue Ridge Parkway. While I was satisfied with my visit, the facility has much to be desired. We stayed on site A10 - which has an amazing view of, and access to,... More

Have been camping here for the last 20 years. Every year it gets worse and worse. This year we stayed here in our motorhome. The trees were so low in E and F loop, I had to stop and get out my ladder and pruning shears to cut branches just to get in the campground. I was warned at check... More

The location cannot be beat! This is a large, lovely campground. They have public toilets but no showers, however I understand the public pool in Blowing Rock charges $2 for showers. Wish I knew about that sooner!! The campsites vary significantly, so you may want to browse before you choose one. I stayed on the B loop, which was very... More

Called to ask about reservation policy and lady on the phone was extremely rude. She acted very put out that I dared call to ask. Understanding that it was Memorial Day weekend and that they would be very busy, I asked her what camp sites were available as first come first serve and how did that work having no experience...

The fact that this campground was less than half full on a Saturday night is evidence of the overall low regard for it in the area. The campground is old and in need of some loving care. No electric outlets in the bathrooms, no shower, no hot water. anywhere. period. Choose your site carefully because some of the tent pads... More

I must say that this is my first camping experience so I don't have a lot of campground comparison. But for someone who is used to hotels, I was very pleased with this experience. Check in was very easy. We had a group of 5 people with three tents so had reserved a space online for $19. When we got... More

Our family just returned from a weekend camping trip and were surprised and disappointed by the conditions we found at the campground. Having camped there about 5 years ago, we were excited to return to such a beautiful spot. We were shocked at what we found! The roads throughout the campground are in horrible shape with huge potholes everwhere. The... More
