When researching where I wanted to stay while heading southbound on the Parkway in October, I came across the website of RiverCamp USA. I loved the idea of being in the mountains of North Carolina during fall colors and the pictures of the New River was enough to convince me.
This row offers pull-throughs on the left side and backups to the river on the other.
I opted for one of the new sites in the front they're preparing on the river and was quite happy here watching the kayaks float along on my backyard. Direcway TV satellite TV came in great here.
Some of the mornings were quite cool, but this was an enjoyable place to sip my morning coffee listening to the birds' songs and sounds of the river.
The fall colors were not quite at their peak in early October, but for a southern girl, I was still quite impressed! This is one of the pull-through sites large enough for big rigs.
Besides canoes, kayaks, and tubes to rent, fishing, hiking and biking nearby, they have a nicely stocked store, and high speed wi-fi which worked really well. My Verizon air card and cell phone did not work unless I was hooked up to the new SmoothTalker booster I bought before I left Shenandoah. Ruthanne, one of the camp hosts, says hers works sometimes from the porch of their campsite, but when I tried, I could call out and hear them, but they couldn't hear me. There is a public phone on the porch of the store.

GPS Coordinates: 36.52663° N; 81.33652° W
Location: Exit Parkway at milepost 248; take Rt. 18 North for 2 miles; Rt. 113 North for 9 miles; follow signs and you're there in about 2 miles.

Malia's 2 cents: Co-owners Jay and Joanne came here from Florida for this area's rustic beauty and are not interested in running a fancy RV resort with concrete pads and manicured lawns. Nature and the natural look abound here and to me, it was the best of both worlds - like being in a woodsy state park, but with all the convenience of full hookups. A river for a backyard for kayaking, canoeing and tubing with lots of nearby fun attractions to keep you occupied. Yep, the best of both worlds!
