N. Carolina - New River or Stone Mtn?

Anyone familiar with New River SP or Stone Mountain SP in North Carolina? We're looking at a trip to NC where we can meet up with tent-camping family, yet still have power and water for our RV. New River and Stone Mountain both look to fit our needs, but I'm unfamiliar with them.

Anyone canoe or kayak in either of these?

I live about 20 mins from stone mtn. Not a lot of amenities but very quiet, and beautiful. If u love hiking or just alittle exploring then stone mtn is great. Be sure to stop by the General store for some hand dipped ice cream. They have nice lots. Havnt stayed at new river since I was young, so I can't help u there.

Duncans

I live 3miles from Duncan's. It is a Family run campground. They are friendly folks, a lot of trees, not the neatest looking campground but functional. They have a pool and a very nice children's play area. Two miles from two major chain grocery stores. 16 miles from D.C. a strait shot down route 4 (aka Pennsylvania Avene) which takes you straight to everything a tourist wants to see. I believe they also can arrange tours if you are so inclined. For Google satellite view Duncan's is located VERY near to Watson's corner (10 miles from the capitol beltway 495)

I have grouped camped at Stone Mountain, very nice park and great hikes. The RV park is nice, has electric and water, no sewer. New River has full hookups.

Stone Mt. is very nice. You need to book early, always full.

Near Greensboro

Raccoon Holler Campground is on the Blue Ridge Parkway, near Glendale Springs, n.c., is a very nice campground and is less than 2 hours from Greensboro, We spent 1 summer there and really enjoyed it, It only has one cabin however, but a fish pond, playground, hiking trails, and all pave d streets, very full of trees, and is very well maintained, safe and clean. good luck.

We just stayed at Kerr a few weeks ago. Great place. Incredible mountain biking. Stone Mountain is within driving distance too.

This is my new favorite campground J C Cooper campground on Kerr Lake NC. You gotta love swimming off of campsite rather than in a designated area.
