“Snookered at Blowing Rock”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Wasn't worth $10 per couple. Make sure you say you're a senior citizen or you'll pay more.The view was okay, but the views were more spectacular from the parkway. The restrooms were unacceptable.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

There isn't much to this park, but I feel it is worth a one time visit. The admission fee isn't that costly, but it is mostly a small area with awesome views, plus a gift shop. If you are going to be doing stuff along the BRP and want to save money, there really is no need to visit The Blowing Rock park.

“It's a good job it's only $6”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

I was so disappointed with the Blowing Rock. The description of gardens and a stream was so misleading - it is there but it's tiny. The shop was poorly stocked and out of date.

The best thing about The Blowing Rock was the view - but you can get that for free on the Parkway.

“Spectacular Views”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Very small site and there is a nominal cost. The views are simply amazing. I could have looked out from the observation deck all day.

“Fun Photo Ops”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Now quite commercialized compared to the 60's, still a fun stop for great family photo. Young ones will enjoy the legend of Blowing Rock. Great views. Nice little gift shop.
