I-77 North Carolina
« on: October 01, 2016, 09:42:35 AM »
Does anybody have any first hand good or bad recommendations for RV parks within 50 miles of I-77 in North Carolina?

I will be driving through there and planning to stop at one or two places in North Carolina.

Just need electric but other utilities always welcomed.

Don't need silly frills but sometimes no choice but to pay for that anyhow.

We overnighted at the Statesville KOA last week. It was fine for that.

We stayed at Stone Mt State Park for 4 nights last month. They have a modern campground with large sites.  They were back-in, water and electric (50 and 30 amp) with lots of room, picnic table fire ring and lantern pole. We also spent a couple of nights at the Mayberry Campground outside of Mt Airy on our way back home. It's closer to I-77 than Stone Mt, and does have full hook-ups. However, it is a parking lot campground with nary a tree in site. We were in a short term spot, a pull-through that had plenty of room for our 30' TT and truck, but no picnic table or fire ring. We liked Stone Mt much better and enjoyed hiking the trails in the mornings and visiting local wineries in the afternoons. Mayberry is good for an overnight or as a place to stay when visiting Mt Airy, but there is little else to do in the campground.

Thank you so much for the information!

I appreciate this. Last time I asked about NC, no one had camped there, so this is handy indeed.

Thank you again!

We stayed in Stone Mountain about 3 weeks ago and found it to be very pleasant.

Thanks for the input.

Anyone else camp in NC around the I-77 area?

We stayed at Midway Campground, just east of where I-77 and I-40 intersect.  It was adequate for our weekend stay.  I would recommend their patio sites by the lake.  The internet there was horrible, but they offer full hookups.

While I haven't yet camped there, Greystone RV Park, just outside Pilot Mountain State Park, looks nice.  I've heard good things, but they have a very limited number of sites, so it's hard to get in.  I actually called them today to try to reserve a site in a couple weeks, but they were booked.  We'll plan sooner next time.

We hiked Pilot Mt state park last month and their campground was closed while they put in a new sewer system. The sites were small-ish, any thing longer than 25 feet would be a tight squeeze, but if they are finished with the construction, that may be a good option.

We stayed a weekend 2 years ago. They had 10 sites, all concrete pull thru, with gravel around them. No shade. These are made for large campers that folks spend 95% of their time inside. Not really anything to do in campground- they do have a small pond to fish in. Super nice bathhouse- nicer than the one in my house,LOL. If I remember it was $50 a night. I would rather stay at Stone Mt. State Park
