Probably the most beautiful and peaceful state park in the country! Plenty of things to do to keep you busy here. Ampetheatre, tennis court, pool, Rhododendron Gardens, Carver's Gap, Little Doe River, Miller Farmstead, & visitor center museum; all worth checking out. Only a few things you need to look out for. Some of the spaces are short and roads are narrow. Be picky choosing a site. Also some of the sites are grossly off level. You may need 2 sets of leveling blocks! When it rains you get alot of runoff from the steep banks. We woke up and everything we had outside was covered in mud. Also you may want to make sure you have everything before you leave. With all this peacefulness comes not a big selection of stores and restaurants. Roan Mnt. has a few small markets, mom & pop restaurants, Dollar General. Elizabethton is about 20 minutes out if you need any fast food, Food City, or Walmart. I know I had some setbacks here, but I will definitely be coming back. Multiple times. Just take plenty of time to do research on this one.
I'd have given RM a 5 star review except for the RV sites are small and so close together. We have a small camper, 15" including the tongue and I felt the site too small. The tent sites are lovely., large and more private. Next time we''ll see if we can get a tent site since our camper is so small. No hook ups on the tent sites, but hey we're camping. The staff was friendly and extremely accommodating. We had some severe weather during our visit. 45mph, horizontal rain and a power outage. The staff was right out after the storm to clean up and help out. Our traveling companions were in a tent and their site was in standing water. The staff hauled in gravel and made an elevated pad as well as helping to move the tent. Great service! The area is spectacular and has something for everyone.
Friends and I rented a cabin here the 3rd time. It is simply beautiful. The mountains, creeks and nature are breathtaking. There are a lot of hiking trails near by. From easy to moderate… so something for everybody. The cabins are very nice and clean. They have everything you need. I would definitely recommend to stay here and enjoy this gem of nature.
We hiked on the Appalachian Trail. We did not have to hike far to see amazing 360 views! Not very crowded. This was one of my favorite places to camp.
This campground is one of our favorites. It is located in Roan Mountain Tennessee. The campground has clean bathhouses with hot showers. It also has several events at it throughout the year, like trick or treat in the campground and the Rhododendron Festival.
The campground has a creek between some of the sites. It is not easily accessible, but sounds great from inside your tent. There are both tent and RV sites - mostly private sites due to heavy shrubbery. The loop is perfect for kids to ride scooters and bikes. We enjoy hiking at Carver's Gap (at the top of the mountain) and hiking up to Jane Bald and Round Bald - fantastic views!
This is an overall great campground. There is lots to do in the park which is nice, but if you want to actually go up Roan Mtn you will have to drive.
Absolutely beautiful state park. Excellent visitor’s center at the entrance. Very helpful staff and a couple hicking trails. A little futher up the road are picnic areas, cabins, and the campground. They have a heated pool, tennis courts, playgrounds, tons of hicking trails. The campground is open year round (the lower loop) and has just about everything you need (no sewer hookups). They have programs year round. If you go even farther up to the top of the Roan you reach Carver’s Gap and the Appalacian Trail.
located in Roan Mtn ,Tn . This place is gorgeous!! Scenery breathtaking. Camped there and also rented cabin. Hiking, Appalachian Trail, riding motorcycle, so much to see and do.
I drove up with no reservation and feared I wouldn't get a spot. But I lucked up. The grounds are very clean and the sites are nicely spaced out. If you can grab a spot by the little creek, I would. I was there during a pretty busy time but the noise was surprisingly not a problem. I had considered camping above Carvers Gap but not being familiar with the area yet, I chose this instead. It's great if you have children camping with you as well. There's a pool, playgrounds, and plenty of room to ride a bike.
This was such a great campsite!! We had such an amazing experience! It wasn’t very crowded and very clean. We brought our puppy on his first camping trip and it was close to Roan Mountain and lots of great hiking!
