Great Campground ! We had 2 sites 64,65

Great sites in loop 5. Up the hill. we had 3 tents and a camper. Shaded, good fire pits, picnic table. Fire pits you had to walk up to but were away from tents, which I liked. Bathhouse was clean, well lit, pretty warm showers. Campground was very clean and has a lot of amenities. We were there for base camp hiking the Appalachian Trail. Sites 56,57,58 were large flat sites with lots of room if you have a large camper. Was very full the week we were there. Recommend!

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.

Favorite N.C. Park!

Grandfather Mountain is simply amazing. The CD given to you at the gate is something we listen to often. The visitor center could be a zoo. It is full of educational information and animals. The hikes are second to none with gorgeous views. Camp sites are pristine. I wouldn’t go back everyday if I could.

Beautiful place in the mountains

I camped here over the weekend with a friend and our dogs.

We were in campsite 62. Our loop was very private and shaded. The only negative point was the street light right across from us. It was pretty bright at night. Our campsite had a picnic table, a fire pit, a water spigot and electricity. There is also a little creek nearby, which was perfect for the dogs. 

The campground is very well maintained, and the bathroom were spotless. The staff, ranchers and volunteers, were super friendly. If you forgot something, there is a little camp store on the property. 

Some of the campsites are directly on the water, but they were not very shaded. 

The park also has events scheduled. They had a cloggers dance group when we were there, which was very nice.

There are a lot of things to do in the area. Some of the hiking trails even start in the campground. You can also explore the grist mill with a nature trail or an old homestead. You have access to the AT about 10 miles away. 

Overall it is a very nice and clean campground in a beautiful state park. We would camp here anytime again.

Mountain Magic

Roan Mountain is a beautiful campground with wooded sites, some with water views and access! Next time we’d definitely try for a water site. We loved Roan Mountain with its rocky streams, shady secluded sites, and winding wooded walks. We will definitely be back.

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!


Sites were right on top of one another and extremely crowded—felt like a tailgating party in a parking lot. We ended up leaving when we found someone’s car parked in our spot, and a group of 30-40 people congregated at the site next to us. Kids were running all over the playground, no one observing social distancing. Looked like a nice park, but not recommended for anyone looking for a quiet camping experience in nature.

Beautiful Campground !

Great campground in the Smoky Mts of East Tennessee.Right on a beautiful creek, easy access to off-road adventures. Close to many good outdoor activities and historical towns. Donna and Dannie really make you welcome!

Very nice State Park with lots of activities

I live only a few miles from the Park and wanted to take advantage of the campground to do a "test run" with our new camper to figure out the set-up and try out all of its features. We lucked into the only spot available for one night on short notice and it was a great camp site. I have spent a lot of time at the Park golfing, mountain biking, swimming, running, kayaking and picnicking but have never been into the campground area.

The bath houses were very clean and all the utilities were well maintained that we saw. Our site was on the outer loop (#24) and had plenty of space between ours and the next sites. Other areas did seem more packed in, mainly closer to the boat ramp area. All in all, we had a great evening trying out our new camper. If you're planning a stay at the campground, you won't be disappointed with the many activities this Park has to offer.
