“Stay Away!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

As you drive in, the campground has a very unkept appearance, but it looked like it would be okay for a two nights stay. How wrong we were!!! Once we saw the bathhouse, we realized we made a big mistake. The bathhouse was filthy. An expert cleaning crew would have a hard time getting this place clean. Also, Dixie Caverns is located right next to the I-81 off ramp; and the highway noise prevents anyone from getting a decent night's sleep.

We stayed here because we had business on the west side of Roanoke. The campground, itself, has a very unkept appearance, but was, basically sufficient for a quick overnight. It is located right next to the I-81 off ramp; and highway noise kept us from getting a good nights sleep. The staff who work in the office were very friendly and helpful. We would not stay here again unless there were no other options.

We chose to stay at Dixie Caverns because it is the town our daughter moved to. Big mistake! I have never been to a place where every lot is COVERED in dog poop. The snow was not plowed from any of the sites and you had to tow your camper over snow banks, through mud pits. The only positive point to this place is that the people were friendly, the cable worked well and so did the free wi-fi. You couldn't hear any of the traffic from the interstate either. There were a LOT of junk rvs and home made campers/shacks there which people were living in year round. Just not a nice place to stay.

I camped here while traveling through Virginia on I-81. For $7.50 I had a tent site in a quiet campground--a real bargain. The bathhouse is locked with a key code for entry, and it was spotless.

I didn't have time to visit the caverns, but noticed that there is a nice gift shop.

The campground is convenient to the interstate but very quiet and clean.
