Campground Review - Dixie Caverns Campground

Our home base during our time visiting friends in Roanoke, Virginia was the Dixie Caverns Campground. We stayed here back in 2003 when we were in the area looking for homes! Hasn't change much!

Staff - 7 - Staff is present to run the store, give cave tours and check in guests. They were friendly and helpful.

Natural surroundings - 8 - Lots of trees in park, and nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Right next to Interstate 81.

Roominess - 8 - Sites are normal sized.

Facility Fun - 3 - You can pay to go into the caverns. We did this in 2007, so skipped it this time. Other than that there are no fun amenities here.

Facility usefulness - 4 - Free and fast wifi, souvenir shop has a few items, like soda and snacks.

Bathrooms - 5 - Showers are hot and have great pressure. Bathrooms need some updating and some soap and paper towels at the sinks!

Cleanliness - 7 - A little run down.

Nearby attractions - 8 - Close to Christiansburg, Salem and Roanoke. We took these pictures of the beautiful and slightly early spring blooms around the valley (not at the park though).

Value - 8 - Paid $24 a night for a pull-through graveled site with full-hook-ups including cable.
Overall - 6 - Not much to do but the free and fast wifi and cable are nice!
