Had the pleasure of camping at the Roan Mountain State Park campground. The attendant went out of her way to be accommodating, the site was quiet and peaceful. The bathhouse was extremely clean.

We've been visiting Roan Mountain State Park for the last 30 years. It is our happy place. We camped in the tent sites on this trip and had a wonderful time. The weather was perfect! A multitude of outdoor adventure awaits.

I almost don't want to share a review. I want to keep this jewel a secret. But this state park is a treasure and deserves some praise. Our family has been spending a week here in the summer for years. I can't speak to the...More

The mountains are prettier in the mist and rain. I prefer them in this weather than in the fall with all the garish colors or in the sun, when the air is dead without the sound of water falling on those giant Rhoddie leaves.
