Decent.

I was a little underwhelmed compared to what I was expecting from camping at a national park. The positives are the cheap rates and there are bathroom and shower facilities. If you want old fashion tent camping the park does have some backcountry campsites.

The cons are the lack of actual campsites. They are more like parking spaces. Probably to appeal to the people who use campers. The noise of the highway was constant and annoying.

Overall I enjoyed my time staying here. Wish I could have done more backcountry camping but the weather didn't permit it.

First Snow Camping!!

Having a blast. We are spending 14 days camping here. Explored the area before the snow hit. Great hiking trails. Nice, large campsites, not too close to your neighbors…but fairly typical. Nice big bathroom ( 2 stalls - 1 handicap). Big handicap accessible open room shower. Had to put towel at bottom of door to stop drafts. Hot water…not that hot…could be warmer. Large bench in shower room and hooks for clothes. Small bench seat in shower as well.

Camping is first-come…first-served…no wood for sale at park…but you can buy from anywhere in Lee County. Paddy's Gas Station about 1 mile from here sells wood for $5 for a good size bundle and other necessities.

Hikes for all levels…easy and strenuous.

Very impressed how quickly and often they came through to scrape the roads once the snow started. We got 6-8 inches on Christmas Eve….and next day park roads were passable…without 4wd. 58 looked great.

All in all this is a great place to camp. Everyone around is so nice and polite. Food City is grocery store in nearby Middlesboro, KY that has awesome cafe for buying hot food meals. Great food! Takes 10-15 minutes to get there. Plenty of fast food options there too.

Very convenient location…well kept park. Try it! You'll like it!

Flag Rock Camoground

Great campground with biking/hiking trails and mountain scenic overlook. Clean bathhouses, picnic tables, fire rings, charcoal grills, and electricity provided. Quiet with great views. Fishing and kayaking are 1/2 mile from the campground. You’ll be climbing one of the highest mountains in Virginia to get there, so be prepared for the drive.

Quiet, Beautiful, and tons of Amenities

Very beautiful place!! Our campsite was on the bank of the river with a fire pit and very level soft ground. About half a mile from a nice little gas station and a KFC s well, which is nice for ice trips or chicken runs. The owner is extremely friendly, kind, considerate, and I will most definitely come here again simply just because of him. They also have propane grills, patio thing, bathrooms, showers, water hose, everything I needed at least. Highly recommended place on my part!

Well-maintained, tidy, friendly and flat.

Arrived around 5 pm on a Monday to ample options for sites. We wanted a flat, electric-only spot for our truck camper and near (but not too near) a bathhouse. Easy to find this: sites are well-laid out and there are multiple bathhouses, all very well-maintained (crisp paint jobs) and very clean. Sites on the lower perimeter will get road noise but interior sites were very quiet. Hosts were friendly and welcoming. Campground connects to a couple trails, 5 min drive to main park office and “attractions.”

Words can't even begin to describe this

This is a very nice place to stay in . It has everything you need to enjoy your stay

Peaceful, dispersed campground

This was a great campground. Very secluded and peaceful. Alot to see and do nearby without the crowds you see elsewhere. Helpful staff was very attentive and always nearby. Bathrooms were very clean, and showers were clean and in individual rooms for great privacy. I just wish they had water hook-ups. Also know that if you plan on using a debit/credit card, you have to pay at the visitor center off site. This campground is first come, first serve. No reservations. However, if you go in the off season or on short notice, that can be a benefit. Only 2 rows of this campground are for RVs (paved parking and electric). The rest are for tents.

Beautiful, but busy with traffic noise

Extremely large campground, primitive and electric sites available. $14 for primitive and $20 for electric. Group sites also available for $35, require a reservation. Sites are fairly close together, so there isn't much privacy if you're looking for that. Full shower houses in B and C loop, water pressure leaves those with long and/or thick hair wanting more. Hosts on site, sometimes two sets of hosts. Rangers also patrol frequently throughout the day. Traffic noise can be heard from the nearby hughway. Lots of trails, Pinnacle Overlook is gorgeous. There's also cave tours for an extra fee, flip flop type shoes are not allowed, no children under five, and I believe no dogs either.

Beautiful awesome great campground

This is a gem one of the most beautiful quiet and peaceful place to camp and spend time in the campground is so clean and well maintained and the campground host are just great

Gorgeous, creek side camping

We needed a spot to stay at the last minute and called the owner. We had two Jeeps with roof top tents, and while this is an RV Park, he has a few seasonal sites near the creek open. If the water is high, the sites aren’t available. What a beautiful place! We wished we could stay longer! Great owners—so hospitable! Free firewood and even had metal rings for a fire. Across the bridge is a paved walking trail that follows the creek. Also the town is the home of writer Adriana Trigiani, bestselling author of Big Stone Gap!
