Wild Ponies!

Lots of clear field balds to walk through. The main trail is easy but the bouldering further up is challenging and exhilarating! Great for any hiking experience level. And wild ponies are everywhere! Be wary of the wind in the winter! My camera case almost blew away. Secure your items while you're there!

Nice Campground!

We were looking for a campground near by over Martin Luther weekend and used the Dyrt app and found this nice campground. All the sites were very roomy, many pull through sites, very clean and very friendly hosts. All sites were gravel and have a fire pit that you can move around to where you want to build your fire. Nice camp store and a very nice and clean bathhouse.

We camped in the back along the green belt trail that runs beside the campground and the Yadkin River. Great trail to go for a jog take your dog for a walk or just to take a stroll along the River. In the summer if you are into kayaking there is a local kayak outdoor adventure place five minutes down the road. Jonesvillle and Elkin both have antique stores and Elkin is a nice town to stroll through with shops and a local brewery. Also in Elkin are great trails to go go hiking and the Mountain to Sea Trail runs right through downtown Elkin. The Yadkin Valley is wine county so if you want to go wine tasting there are many vineyards in the area. I would differently go camping again at this campground.

BEAUTIFUL

So… I was planning on camping here in Grayson Highlands and even had a reservation, but when we arrived there was an emergency within the park and we could no longer stay there, but we got fully reimbursed! The rangers were so nice!!! ALthough that was a shame we took a ride around the park and LOVED IT. I will for sure be returning to enjoy this serene park. The trails were extremely icy, but we had arrived during a severe winter storm, but the pictures we had captured were breathtaking. The backpacking trails look well maintained and easy to set camp up in. I personally would prefer to hammock camp while backpacking here because there is a thick brush layer even in late january. Such a shame we missed our opportunity, but had to leave a review because it looked AMAZING.

Closed for the season

Closed as of January 25, 2021.

Closed

“Closed due to no water or bathrooms. First come first serve camping at Hurricane and Grindstone campground.”

The location is reVirginia Creeper!

This campground is small and no bathrooms, but it is directly on the Creeper so that makes up for it! Great location also because it is close to restaurants and the center of the small town. It does have water and power and a picnic table. Being right on a little river is great too. Gave it 4 stars because no bathrooms/showers.

Easy Access, Close to Town

Just across the Virginia state line, this national forest offers multiple dispersed camping areas along Beaver Dam Creek. Opportunities for hiking, cycling, fishing, and paddling are abundant. Most of campsites are large, very shaded, along a beautiful treelined road, and surrounded by mountains. 

There is no drinking water, picnic tables, or even pit toilet, so come prepared. The only major problem is that folks tend to leave a ton of trash around, so we often spend about 20-30 minutes cleaning these sites upon arrival. Please Leave No Trace! Our site had a good fire ring, and was on the edge of a creek that we could filter water from with ease.  Would not recommend for any vehicle larger than 20 feet as the potholed road and the tight turns to get up to the camp from the road would be tough.  4WD highly recommended, especially in mud season or winter.

We stayed at this camp for 10 days during the pandemic shutdown and it was a lovely place to ride out this crazy storm.  Some road noise from the motorcycles that cruise the road, but only occasionally. The closest town is Damascus, VA, about 5 miles away. The town is small, but draws thousands of tourists each year who are either hiking the Appalachian Trail or cycling the famous Virginia Creeper bike path. It is equipped with a decent sized grocery store, gas, and couple of restaurants, and a cute downtown area. There is absolutely no cell service at this camp, you have to go into town or hike a local mountain to get service up high.

Creekside Camping

At the intersection of the North Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia state lines, sits this national forest which offers multiple dispersed camping areas along Bear Creek. Opportunities for hiking, cycling, fishing, and paddling are abundant.  The Appalachian Trail and Virginia Creeper Trail are just minutes away, as well as some easy whitewater paddling fun on the White Top Laurel Creek.

Our site had a good fire ring, and was on the edge of a creek that we could filter water from with ease. We stayed at this camp for 3 weeks during the pandemic shutdown and it was a perfect place to ride out this crazy storm and decompress from some anxiety.

Awesome Little Campsite

We stayed here in late October 2020 in site 9D. We had FHU and our site backed up to the stream. They have lots of antiques and uniques as decorations. This is a very kid friendly campground. Clean bath facilities.

Relaxing by the Stream

We camped here June 26-28 and had a great time. This place has an actual water park within the campground (although closed for COVID). We had FHU and were in site A3 right beside the stream. In this park, all the sites are dirt only, no paved pads, but do have rock fire rings. The WiFi was pretty good considering the number of people who were probably using it. This is a gated campground, you only enter with a pass card.

Bath house was clean and the grounds were very well maintained. The pond dam was really close to our site and the rushing water will really lull you to sleep at night.
