Dixie Caverns Campground - June 10 to June 14, 2015

Rating:  2.5 on a scale of 5

Location:  When we visit John's family in Roanoke, we believe this to be the best location for us in the RV in the area as it is convenient to both Salem and Roanoke, VA. It is located just a couple of minutes from I-81, exit 132. The campground is part of the Dixie Caverns and Pottery Shop attraction that includes 45-minute guided tours of the caverns, a Rock & Mineral Shop, Gift Shop, an Antiques, Collectibles & Crafts Mall. During our first stay here, we did the cavern tour and enjoyed it very much. This trip we perused the Antiques mall, too.

Lot size:  The lots are all pull-through, which is great. However, they are a bit narrow as you can see by these photos. We had plenty of room for our tow dolly and car. When we had folks over for dinner, we moved the picnic table in front of the motor coach and it worked out just fine.

Amenities:  All RV sites have full hook-ups (electric, water, sewage) and cable TV. Wifi is available, but is relatively slow (similar to most parks where we stay). We did not check out the bath houses here, but they are accessible via a code at the doors.

Cost: $152.73

Management:  The office to check into the campground is located in the store (Rock & Mineral Shop and Gift Shop). They had our reservation and we were checked in with no delay. The folks here are nice and helpful.

General Comments: There is a lovely creek that runs along the edge of the campground that is just lovely. Sadie enjoyed it very much!

There is also a pavilion for groups to use. The grounds are well maintained. Road noise (from I-81) can sometimes be heard from the campground, although this was not a problem to us, but our visitors mentioned it.
