4 Reviews of Dan River Campground
Nice, small campground on the Dan River

Nice level sites, some open, some wooded, but most are fairly close. Several full-time residents, but mostly for campers. We were in site 23, which was wooded, so we had no satellite coverage. It was 30A/FHU. OTA TV is pretty decent with an omni antenna. Campground WiFi reached 0.85 MB/s, but data rates seemed to vary greatly, and often dropped to zero. AT&T had 2 bars and 3.5 MB/s w/o a booster, 4 bars and 4.9 MB/s with it. There is a nice 1 mile loop trail around the property. Campground was about 2/3 full. They also put up Halloween decorations around the whole campground, complete with a grave yard by the bath house, a really nice touch.

Well kept campground

Campground had some restrictions in July 2020 due to COVID-19.  Pool was open but restricted to 10 or less at a time.  Playgrounds were closed.  Camp store has essentials (wood, ice, etc.).  Adjacent to campground the owner's have an inner tube rental excursion (Dan River Adventures);  separate from campground.  The electrical and water service was well maintained and functional.  The camp owners will swap out a socket if your outlets need something changed;  best to give them a day to two advance notice.  Most sites have shade but not all.  Bugs and mosquitoes were not that bad despite being close to river.  Very rural area of North Carolina with limited services.  Family friendly camp atmosphere.

Meh

Not awful, but not overly impressed. Small campground that also runs a river tube/canoe/kayak business. They take you up river and you float until you’re back at camp. The Dan river was crazy muddy. The mosquitoes are rabid, huge, and there are millions. Literally. Swarms. Our nice DEET-free bug spray did not keep us safe. The Small, shadeless, chair less pool was open but the kids play area was off limits ( damn covid). The camp itself is small and the sites are very cozy with the neighbors. The primitive tent sites were a little more spread out. They were small areas. Well shaded. (Read: bug heaven) fairly level area with gravel. (Not big chunks of rock like some in Tennessee) table and fire ring in site. Trees were ok for hammock hanging. None that would work for my tree tent. 🤷🏼‍♀️ small, clean bathhouse with showers and coin laundry. The owners were friendly when we checked in. Overall an ok place, maybe if you were coming for river activity. We weren’t here for a mud bath so we didn’t do anything on the river. I probably won’t camp here again. Just personal preference.

First to Review
Immaculate and cozy

All amenities here we're convenient and sites were well appointed. The grounds and buildings we're immaculately kept, there's a quiet atmosphere and helpful staff. We plan to return and use the tubing options available through the campground this summer.
