This is always a favorite family spot and close to everything around the Blue Ridge mountains. We spend six days here, never bored with the accompanying scenery. On 276 a short drive away, you can spend a day going down and find swimming holes, Looking Glass Falls, and a special tubing park that ends near 280.
We book early to arrive on the lake and kids can fish from the trailer. Excellent view with ducks that will come right up to your RV expecting food of some sort. There is one duck I've named Fred that seems to be tormented from his foes. It is a sad spectacle to watch as Fred is continually chased by his mates up into the driveways and around the campground. I could not observe first hand at any point as to why Fred was being bullied constantly. I do know I felt like quarantining the lot several times to offer him some reprieve. And gave him extra food while shooing away his clan.
Bridge was becoming inundated with flooding from local rain lately. We had to use the back way to get around to the front on several occasions. That can get a bit cumbersome.
You are close to the train here and can hear whistling.
You can store your RV there for only $15 a week. This is a great bargain if you need to travel elsewhere and detest dragging everything with you.
