Lots of privacy and amenities

This was a great campsite. We stayed in a tent electric site and it wasn’t really woodsy but it had a nice little privacy fence and was in great shape. Perfect for car campers. The primitive sites looked much more woodsy, I might have chosen that instead of a hookup site if I had known, but its…

Nice campground for hiking, historic buildings nearby and a great camp store. Lots of regulars it seems. Sites are close but not a negative. Lots of loud neighbors the weekend that we were there. Beautiful water areas, great places to take photographs lots of friendly people. Our site was private…

Excellent campsite

We stayed 2 nights at this campground and we were throughly impressed. The campsite we had was large and well kept, and was located right by the bath house. The bathroom facilities were very clean and made the stay much easier, especially since we were camping with kids. We will definitely be back!

Roan Mountain State Park

The staff is great, all public areas are clean and organized. The facilities are nice, but you might want to look at your site first if you can. There are some places that big rigs will not fit into, and some you won't be able to get to. Some of the sites, the picnic table, fire pit, and grill…

Nice

Called in on Saturday Morning got a cabin at a great price for the night. Family oriented place. Older couple that runs it is super nice and friendly but doesn’t bother you. Shower house clean water hot hot. Quiet time is respected.

Nice, clean campground!

Overall, Paddy's Creek is really nice. The bath house seems nearly new & clean. The sites are all nicely taken care of, & even though they're a little close together there are enough trees to separate them. Also, down the hill ~100 yards, through the forest, was a nice little private…

Perfect for Families

Family-friendly campground with plenty of fun activities for kids. Playground, fishing pond, disc golf, recreation and game area, and ice cream trailer. Our site was nicely shaded and fairly level. Fire pit and picnic table at each site. There appears to be a lot of long-term residents but all…

Wonderful park!

We are currently camping for 5 nights here. Booked our campsite a day in advance; I think we got lucky with a cancellation. We are here during a lot of rain from Ida but it's so beautiful and peaceful.

On a non rainy day, we did 5 hikes to explore the mountain. On a rainy day, we went to Miller…

Neat spot!

This is a really chill spot near Boone. We stayed in one of the tipis, and it was an awesome glamping experience

The bathrooms were clean.

Everyone staying here was really nice and chill. It feels a little hippie which is neat.

If you’re pulling a camper, the road would be a little rough, but…

Excellent First Camping Experience

I had determined that this campground was the perfect distance and look to host my first ever outing. I was nervous and excited as I rolled up to the park. 

The visitor center staff were welcoming and assisted in securing the few last-minute items that I needed (firewood, ice, popcorn). The…

Get what you pay for

Pros: Free, many sites with water access for kayaking/fishing, fire rings, parking lot close to sites. Cons: Lots of road noise-- you're sitting in a valley bordered by highway on 3 sides, and the echo is serious. Trash everywhere making some sites unusable. Lots of poison ivy.

So, if it's worth…

Quant little place in natural setting

Nice creek running nearby and a few short walking paths. The drive to spruce pine is scenic and long but head back toward bat cave and there ade neat little adventures to have with the kiddos. The roadside trout streams are great and you can even catch some dinner behind the gem mine in town. It…

A Bit Tight

We went for a weekend with our grandsons. Due to our work schedule we arrived after the gate was locked-not a problem, but they do lock gates fairly early. The road in is quite narrow, and if you happen to meet another RV, someone will need to back up. The campsites are packed it really tight…

Awesome lake & campsite! Paddy's Creek area drive-in site

Snagged a site in the Paddy's Creek area last minute not thinking to check the weather... but we had a great time despite the storms! 

Lake James is huge and gorgeous, and the beach swimming area is really nice! Kids had a blast in the nice clear water on a HOT August day & got to watch…
