Great location but...

Stayed here for a long weekend. We had our 20 foot camper trailer and our friends stayed in - cabin. Pro’s:Our campsite was nice, fairly private and backed up to a creek. Relatively level site. Location of campground was excellent with convenient access to breweries, great hike, blue ridge parkway, etc. large campground with lots of camp sites.

Con’s: we called and called to to inquire about some of our reservation needs, could rarely reach anyone. Rarely staffed in the shoulder season of the fall. Asked about fire would and was told told that they don’t have it ( they didn’t say they were out or didn’t have any at that time, just they don’t sell firewood) Later in the evening a new set of campers checked in after hours and had fire wood waiting for them. Our friends checked in after hours and we’re not provided a door code for their cabin and someone had to crawl through an unlocked window. No after hours number. When staff informed the next day, no attempt to apologize. The cabin seemed to be infested with stink bugs. Bathrooms were poorly maintained. Definitely functioning and clean but needs sim TLC and upgrades. Trash bins through out site tipped over every morning and didn’t seem to be collected. The electric hookup circuit breaker was very loose.

Overall, I would choose somewhere else to stay next time.

Exactly what we needed

Great camp ground in the mountains! Went in Labor Day weekend and although it was busy with lots of RVs and travel trailers and tent campers. it never felt crowded. Lots of trees and the sites were roomy. The campground had everything we needed without unnecessary frills. Full hookups, but no Wi-Fi or anything that high up in the mountains. Didn’t even miss it. Tons of great hiking around. Right off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Country store across the street has everything you need.
