LOVE,LOVE,LOVE This place! LGBT FRIENDLY SITE!

This is a very private, no cell reception! I love it here! They have a beautiful lake that offers a paddle boat, a canoe (first come,first serve). Most of the sites are tiny homes now because the people that have come have loved it so much they stay! They have a handle full of tent sites but all have electric and water. They offer a gourmet kitchen with two refrigerators to store your foods if need be and to cook on. When we stayed we had three days of monsoon rain so the kitchen came in handy for us. They offer a club house and a pool to hang where they often have events during the summer months and holidays. It honestly is so relaxing there. We plan on going back again to camp.

Since cell reception is minimal up there you may want to call way in advance get a reservation. Their main phone is located in the kitchen and is checked once a day. I recommend emailing and calling. It’s a tough place to reach but the pay off of camping there is worth it in the end.

Blowing Rock is located about ten to fifteen minutes from the campground. And everything else is about twenty minutes or more. If you need food pack what you need and bring it all in with you.

We will returning hopefully come the fall sometime!

Old Faithful

I’ve been camping at this campground for years. I was also born and raised in this area and spent most of my life visiting this park in my youth from recreation camps to science classes to high school reunions.

Yes, this is a busy campground for a small town but what people forget is the hiking trails and the falls that you see are absolutely breathtaking. The staff have always been super friendly and go above and beyond to maintain this park for generations to visit and camp at.

I will continue my tradition of camping here as long as I can because I love this place and what it has to offer. Keep up the good work!!

Moravia is a small town full of small town charm.

Clean and quiet

We live about half hour or so from this campground and have wanted to check it out for some time. The sites are very well taken care of. We chose to camp on one of the hotter days of the year so the tree shade came in handy to help keep us cool. It stormed the second night we were there and we tried to make the best of the situation without having to pack up and just go home.

We have been to this park before for fishing in different areas and have really enjoyed ourselves. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The bathhouses for the most part are well maintained and cleaned.

I think my only complaint would be is the pads for the tens. When I got home I was patching holes in the floor of my tent from where the stone pad had caused damage. I know a seasoned camper would’ve put down a tarp but we didn’t have one and thought that we might be ok this trip with out one.

Had it not been for the monsoon rain storms we would’ve loved our trip but that is in the hands of Mother Nature no one else’s and that isn’t figured into my star rating. The reason I didn’t give it all fives is because of the stone pad that and you could hear traffic and air planes flying over.

Hidden Gem

My brother lives about ten minutes from this campground. He failed to make a reservation so we ended up on a primitive site w no electric or water. Which actually worked out quite well in the end we made it work for us. The spot he chose was big enough for two tents. The site itself offered the usual fires grill and another cooking grill to cook on which for us came in handy.

Only drawback I think for us on this trip is we wished the bath houses were closer. But they seemed to be clean and well maintained.

The camground offers a lot for the money. There’s a pond for fishing, a pool for swimming and a little general store for all your needs, the kids loved the bounce pillow. They had mini golf but that is in need of some love just a little clean up ofnoine needs really. Outside of that the grounds are well maintained and we found the staff was nice. Would recommend.
