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.
Great spot for tent camping! Loved the hillside spots bc of all the trees and the multiple levels that the spots are on. They are all built out and flat. Bathrooms are clean and campground was quiet. I had issues finding out if pets were allowed… they are! My dog and I had an awesome time and we will be back for sure.
We had a wonderful time camping at Smith Mountain Lake State Park! We stayed at the end of March and it was definitely spring weather. Warmish during the day and very cool at night. Staying here in the late winter/early spring, the campground is not as crowded as it would be in summer!
We stayed in site 32, which was awesome. It is a non-specific reservation and there were plenty of good sites to choose from. We arrived late at night and set up in the rain. We were very happy with the campsite we chose! It was big enough for our larger tent and had plenty of room for the kids to run around. It looks like it is typically wooded but since there were no leaves on the trees, there wasn't a ton of privacy. The non-electric sites are definitely more private than the electric sites. Our site was a short walk from the bathrooms, which had hot showers and flush toilets.
We did lots of hiking and enjoyed spending time on the beautiful lake!
We always enjoy staying at Corp campgrounds when we travel. The sites are consistently level, spacious, with reliable facilities (dumpstation, electric service, potable water, bath house. And you can always count on a pristine body of water for camping and kayaking. The launch ramp was adjacent to the campsite and while we could have portaged our kayak to the ramp, there is an ample parking lot ramp-side. Philpott reservoir is magnificent! The camp hosts were gracious and extremely helpful in helping us determine the best route from our home. We were only there mid week and it was very quiet.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Smith Mountain Lake State Park.
The rangers were helpful and friendly. They checked us in, provided an overview of the park and directions/instructions to/for everything.
The campsites were cozy and far enough apart that neighboring sites didn't intrude on our quiet.
The bath house/toilets were clean and well stocked. The showers were individual rooms with locking doors, a changing area, and the shower. They were very clean.
The lake was quite beautiful. There is a beach area with concession stand (that was open even with the COVID Kerfluffle). Paddle boat and canoe rental was also available. There is a boat ramp if you bring your own boat.
The trails were nice and mostly well marked. Our only quibble was a few places where you weren't sure if you were on the path or a game trail.
We will definitely be returning.
We camped here with our pop-up & had a great time. It fills up fast, so we were thrilled to see an open spot a few days before. The campsite was big & clean with plenty of trees for a little privacy. The lake was a bit of a walk & we had small kids, so we drove down & found a trail to hike on. We’ll def be back.
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.
We enjoyed staying at Pilot Mountain State Park campground. The sites are on a hill, some above and others below the road. We booked site 13 and it is basically on the hiking trail that goes to the Pinnacle. It didn't provide a lot of privacy, but we actually enjoyed watching the hikers walking by. The site provides plenty of shade and trees to hang a hammock. We had a great time at the campsite. The bathrooms and showers were ok, the level you would expect from a state campground - nothing fancy but clean.
We were there on June 30th and it wasn't hot, much better than spending a weekend in the city.
