_Great location, great nightly rate, we tried to get a last minute campsite for the 4th of July weekend with some friends and was put on a wait list almost everywhere but the lady at Plum Nelly called back the next day and got myself and friends a spot side by side.Cons_ The lady running the show (Nancy) does not like kids at all!!! She yelled at our kids for playing on the playground unsupervised (we could see the old wooden play structure from our site. It was no more than 150 yards away. She is not very understanding and does not listen to what you have to say, even if its to apologize for your dog getting loose, or your child playing at the playground without you while you are cleaning up your campsite. She escorted our kids back to the campsite to make sure that we handled our business as parents when they went back to the playground without an adult. They were being kids playing outside, wandered over there and couldn't resist playing on the playground no better than what you would find in a backyard. My dog got loose twice, and she was very unpleasant and not very understanding about that either. Sometimes it just happens, and we are immediately chasing after them to get the situation under control. She will immediately be on your case about the dogs if they are also tied up but not supervised by an adult. Husbands went over to talk with her and try to make peace and understand what her rules are because they are not posted anywhere and she doesn't go over them with you when you arrive. To sum up that conversation, she told us our kids don't listen and if we don't like the way she does business we can pack up and leave and she will just refund us. She really just kinda makes the rules up as she pleases from the impression we got. Our kids went from being allowed to ride their bikes as long as they stayed on the gravel to not being allowed at all. She really made us feel very unwelcome at the campground all weekend. I won't sweat it though, because there is KOA opening up just down the road in Blue Ridge come August. We know the kids can play there, and the dogs will be okay if they happen to get loose once or twice by mistake. Worst campground host we have ever dealt with.Also, the bathhouse is compound of sheds put together with bugs, spiders and hornets nests. The nicest thing about the campground was the location and prices. Once that KOA opens people will never give this place a second thought as they drive right on by_…
This campground was our very first time camping and it was super. Grounds keeper Nancy was very friendly, helpful, made us feel at home. The folks we met their are unforgettable. They made us sad to leave.
Not a grand rv park, but the site was pretty level and the staff was nice. It is close to the 4 lane highway, but the price is very reasonable! Dog friendly. Directions are confusing, so call them and ask, as most gsp systems will not take you to correct place1
This little place grew on me the longer I stayed. Super friendly staff. No spit and polish, but great value for the cost. Most sites are large and pull through. Some long timers but their sites are not shabby. Nothing special here, not even a pool. Single room toilet/shower combos in a couple of locations. But sites are mowed and relatively level. Interesting primitive area for tenters is in a deep treed ravine with a murky pond in the middle. Steep access roads to this area best navigated with a 4x4, definitely not a sedan. It is quiet and perfectly adequate for self contained RVs. I will definitely return.
Sometimes you travel through life and happen on the unexpected. We had reservations at another campground for a week, but were able to get away a day early and drove. On Memorial Day Weekend, campsites are impossible to find last minute, but we lucked into a cancellation at Plum Nelly. The campground is clean, convenient to the interstate and has full hook ups. What sets Plum Nelly apart, was the honest welcome we got from Nancy the host, the invitation we got to the bonfire from the owners, Deanie and Bill, and the fun we had sitting around a campfire with a community of travers. It felt like a step back to a simpler time, and it was REFRESHING! We will be back.....Sunday night in fact, we've been invited to a pot luck!
