Reviewed 21 October 2012

The good:

*Easy to call & reserve, host provided us with the gate code to be able to check in
*Camp host very nice, personable, & outgoing – offered extra extension cords, water hoses, and/or sewer lines if we needed them; walked us the open sites & let us choose which one we would like for the weekend
*Sites were grassy w/gravel and mostly level
*When questioned about check-out times, host told us that no one had reserved the site after us, so there wasn’t a firm check-out time
*Location was very pretty, We were there after the water levels had been dropped for the winter, but I’m sure that in the spring/summer the would be beautiful
*Close to public boat launch & VA Creeper Trail

The not so good:

**Location was down a very windy, gravel road. No advance warning about hills, tight turns, & narrowness of roads. That might have been a problem for a longer truck/trailer rig or a large RV (we had an F250 crew cab w/26’ travel trailer)**
**No camp store on site – if you didn’t bring it, you would have to travel to Damascus or Abingdon to get it. That includes firewood. We were told when we arrived there was ‘free’ firewood there, but it would have to be split & couldn’t say anything as to the quality of it**
**This campground is pretty much a permanent trailer park with only a few sites open for nightly or weekly visitors. Almost felt like we were intruding on folk’s weekend homes while we were there**
**It appeared that there were only 3 full hook-up sites that were open for nightly rentals – the rest of the park was full of trailers that were there to stay – porches, skirting, etc.**
**Camp host had a rule sheet (printed on legal paper – front & back) of 50+ rules that had to be followed or risk eviction from the premises**
**Several of the permanent sites, when the wind shifted, had a definite sewer aroma. Not sure if they were having problems or if this is just the norm**

Stayed: October 2012, travelled as a couple
