No alcohol allowed !!

The police visited us bc we were drinking outside of our camper. He was very nice and explained no alcohol allowed. This is clearly stated and we were in the wrong. Spaces are not private but the lake is beautiful. I can see where some people would love this campground. We canoed and that was fun.

Beautiful park in a beautiful setting

Lots to do here, great trails for hiking. The campground was nice, some spots were more level than others and there wasn’t much screening between sites, but in all the setting was beautiful and the park was worth the visit. The bathhouse was clean . The hot water in the shower wasn’t that hot,…

Starry skies!

We got a non-electric site and in November is was in the 30's at night - pretty cold for tent camping! But we bundled up and made lots of fires! Fire wood is available at the visitors center for a fee. The campsites come with a fire ring, picnic table, room for two cars. We have a pretty large tent…

  • Parking for two cars
  • Smaller campsite, but will fit two larger tents
  • Hiking trail adjacent to the campground - beautiful sunset!

Great place for families

Our family has camped here multiple times.  Great place to stay due to clean facilities and well kept sites. The lake is perfect for little ones and even grownup kids. Also love the trails that surround the campground.  Would definitely recommend for a camping trip.

Close to the City and on the Blue Ridge Parkway

Our family loved this campground! It is close to Roanoke and it is off the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is located in Explore Park. This park is growing by leaps and bounds. It has mountain bike trails, a cool vintage village, access to the Roanoke River, an aerial obstacle course, and more cool…

Great Adventure in SW Virginia

This weekend was a great adventure in SW Virginia. We stayed in a Yurt. It has no electricity or water but the bath house was close. The yurt has a double bed, a twin trundle, a couch and some chairs, and a table and chairs. It also has a large wrap around deck with rocking chairs. A picnic…

Great place!!

Great spot for tent camping! Loved the hillside spots bc of all the trees and the multiple levels that the spots are on. They are all built out and flat. Bathrooms are clean and campground was quiet. I had issues finding out if pets were allowed... they are! My dog and I had an awesome time and we…

We stayed…

Quiet, Not Crowded, Lovely

We truly enjoyed our stay at Smith Mountain Lake State Park.

The rangers were helpful and friendly. They checked us in, provided an overview of the park and directions/instructions to/for everything.

The campsites were cozy and far enough apart that neighboring sites didn't intrude on our…

Wooded, spacious, & clean

We camped here with our pop-up & had a great time. It fills up fast, so we were thrilled to see an open spot a few days before. The campsite was big & clean with plenty of trees for a little privacy. The lake was a bit of a walk & we had small kids, so we drove down & found a trail…

Great Glamping getaway!

We stayed in one of Don’s Cab-Inns over fourth of July weekend. It was a great stay and glam camping at it’s finest. These cabins have plenty of room for a family or couple getaway. The AC is very welcoming after a long hot day outside and mini fridge is perfect to unload your cooler from…

Well maintained

The park itself is well maintained. Bath houses were clean. Tent sites are really close together. A little overpriced for what you’re getting compared to other areas in my opinion.
