    Marion, Virginia

    Royal Oak Campground at Hungry Mother State Park is a fantastic spot near Marion, VA, perfect for a year-round camping adventure. This place has a bit of everything, whether you're into tent camping, RVing, or even glamping in a yurt. The campground is known for its peaceful atmosphere and well-maintained facilities.

    Visitors rave about the clean and heated bathroom facilities, complete with showers and flushable toilets. There's also a potable water faucet conveniently located by the bathrooms. If you need firewood, you can grab some at the Creekside Campground just across the road.

    The campground offers a variety of sites, including some that back up to the trees for a more secluded feel. However, be prepared for a bit of a hike if you choose one of these spots. The Royal Oak loop is particularly popular for its tent platforms, which come with tiedowns—a nice touch for securing your gear.

    For those who love the sound of water, the Creekside campsites are a hit. Falling asleep to the sound of trickling water is a real treat. The sites are wooded and well laid out, giving you a sense of privacy even when the campground is busy.

    Hungry Mother State Park itself is a treasure trove of activities. There are well-maintained hiking trails, opportunities for paddling around the lake, and even swimming in warmer weather. The park also hosts various classes, activities, and events during the season, making it a great spot for families.

    If you're planning a trip, site #44 comes highly recommended for its level ground and proximity to amenities. And don't worry about being too far from civilization—there's a Walmart and a cute ice cream shop just a short drive away.

    So, pack your bags and head over to Royal Oak Campground for a memorable camping experience. Whether you're there for the hiking, the peaceful setting, or just a weekend getaway, you won't be disappointed.

    Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina

    Mountain Stream RV Park is at about 1800′ elevation in the middle of the Pisgah National Forest, nestled in a narrow valley surrounded by mountains on all sides. Beautiful Buck Creek flows through this valley and along two sides of the campground. The Blue Ridge Parkway is only about 3 miles away, but it’s 5 miles by road.

    We are surrounded by gorgeous mountain scenery. You can take in many of the interesting attractions that are only a short drive away or you can just relax by the stream and listen to the cold clear water flowing over the rocky stream bed. And speaking of the stream, there’s trout in that thar’ water. All of our sites have full hook-ups – power (30 & 50 amp), water, sewer and cable TV.
