Absolutely gorgeous location. Quiet other than the river flowing by. Very meticulous landscaping at each site. Super friendly and helpful staff. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

New owners have made significant upgrades. Rest rooms and laundry are completely renovated and very nice. Wi-fi to campground has been upgraded and to high speed. Our favorite mountain campground.

This campground has a great deal of appeal. It is indeed in a secluded valley with a stream running along one side and a small lake in the center. We had a back-in site located by the stream with full hook-ups and 50 amp electric. There is free WiFi that is usable but just barely. The driveways and site pads are gravel. Bathrooms are “rustic” but OK. We were not able to get AT&T service here. Nothing fancy but this is a nice, quiet campground in an appealing location about 5 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway. We paid $34 per night.
