The BEST Campground in Virginia!

We spend quite a bit of our time here, it is very family oriented. My kids love all of the activities and the lake! Can't wait until we can back this summer. They are remodeling and upgrading since SUN RV is now the new owners. If you have a golf cart, you can bring it. or you can rent one there.

Okay, but not well thought out

PROS This is a nice clean campground within walking distance to the Brewery - which is why most people camp there. Nice hiking trails, well marked and wide. WiFi was decent. Beautiful area with Mountain View’s.

CONS There are no trees on the RV section, which means if you camp in the summer months it is sweltering hot and your A.C. runs non-stop. In VA no one wants to sit outside in July or August when it’s 100 degrees.

RVers share a hookup with their neighbor which means even numbered sites have hookups on the driver side; odd number sites have hookups on the passenger side; this means you have to run all hoses and wires under your camper to your hookups and they need to be long. NOT a good setup at all.

One of our Favorites

We love camping at Holliday Lake. It is completely off grid, and we like that! With busy jobs during the week it’s nice to unwind and enjoy nature. We hike, fish, swim, kayak, rent a motor boat, and just relax at our campsite. We watched a Bald Eagle and an Osprey for over an hour while kayaking on the lake. If you want down time this is a great place! The only con I will say is for RV’ers bring your leveling blocks - you will need them! The staff are friendly and check on you frequently; bathhouses are well maintained and clean.

Opens Late

Camping season doesn’t start until 4/1.

2 Night Minimum

Just went to book a site since I’m in the area, and it’s a two-night minimum to tent camp. This seems crazy for a Sunday night and the campground is not at all packed. It’s also $50/night, which is too high for primitive sites.

Nice campground

We stayed in 2020, first time at this campground and will definitely stay again. Very close to the Blue Ridge Parkway, plenty of places to hike, and Natural Bridge is a must see. Plenty to do at the campground - corn hole, pool, playground, etc. We stayed in a pull-thru full-hookup site, they also have tent sites and cabins. The campsites are close together, but a nice place; staff are very nice. We have a toy-hauler and this is a great place to bring your motorcycles if you want to enjoy a great ride with beautiful scenery!

Annual Family Trip

We camp here annually with my wife’s side of the family (it’s half way between us and them). We love it. We like getting the sites which are right next to the creek because the kids will play in the water all day.

In the shoulder season the campground isn’t staffed often, but what do you expect when it’s not busy?

There are plenty of things to do near by, especially hiking.

Hard to beat free

This campground being only about 25 miles from home has been one we’ve used several times over the years. It has seen increasing use the last few years and does seem to attract a wide range of people, including some regulars whose rigs more or less stay all summer. Free boondocking places east of the Mississippi are rarer than out west, and this is a good one, for a place with multiple campers. 

It should be noted that the warning about water moccasins posted previously is inaccurate as there are no water moccasins in this part of Virginia. There are eastern timber rattlers and copperheads as our only venomous snakes, as well as several non-venomous water snakes that are often mistaken for both moccasins and copperheads, along with the usual ticks, yellow jackets, wasps, and bears among the fauna one might encounter in a relatively wild place. All of which simply say PAY ATTENTION when you are out in the woods.

Great location!

This campground has full-hookup sites, tent-only sites, and some hip camp sites as well. We tent camped here in January at a full hook-up site so we could have heaters in the tent. During the summer we would definitely choose one of the tent only sites because they have more privacy and are more so in the trees. Site 23 is a pull-through site. It was super cold and windy (it snowed while we were there!) and being out in the open like that is not ideal but it was ok for what it was! We set up close to the electric outlets and didn't have any issues with that. This campground is so fun! There are trails in the campground a beautiful view of the mountains all around. It is really in the best location. You are in walking distance to Devils Backbone and Blue Frog Cidery and a short drive to Wintergreen Resort, awesome restaurants, amazing hiking, and so many places on the Brew Ridge Trail. I can guess that during the summer this place is probably very busy but in the middle of winter it was pretty quiet! The bathrooms are nice and new looking but really far away from the RV sites, so keep that in mind. Fire wood was available for a fee. Self check-in to the sites because of COVID and masks are required in bathrooms. Reservations required if you want to eat or drink at Devils Backbone Restaurant and Brewery :)

Beautiful and wild

Me and my boyfriend stayed here during our road trip through VA, we stayed in late January. It was COLD, but I love a camping challenge. We got there in the dark and had no clue what we were walking into. The bathrooms were compostable toilets, the sites were beautifully maintained. On the way we got a personal call that the campground was quite flooded and they recommended different sites. When we woke up it was beautiful! We saw in the early morning a coyote and a great horned owl. We also saw many types of hawks, song birds, and eastern bluebirds! I was amazed by the sheer amount of wildlife. The cabins on the other hand, were breathtaking. They were absolutely beautiful with amazing views. I felt like I was in the midwest! I will 100% return to this campground to just enjoy the park instead of rushing out!
