Does anyone have any suggestions as close to Roanoke as possible?

When are you looking to go? We love Smith Mountain Lake State Park. It's 40 miles from Roanoke, but it'a a great place to camp. They probably close Dec. 1. Their website is Smith Mountain Lake State Park

One very patient wife and one furry child who travels with us. Forty-two years of trailering and camping, and I still have a blast.

We are coming from the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Family lives in Roanoke so we would like to find something close. Here is the kicker, we are traveling with three of our six kids. Two 3 year olds and a newborn. Full hook-ups and TV are a must. Probably stay for 3 or 4 days.

Still don't know which way you are coming. If home to Annapolis to DC to 66 to 81 then try this. About 45 minute commute on 81. Was an OK place when I last stayed there, plus there is the Natural Bridge and, I think, a car museum.

Dixie Caverns Campground is very close to your destination, practically on top of it, but I have never stayed there. The caverns are well known.

BTW There is a Camping World in Roanoke. Bring $$$!

Stayed at Dixie Caverns Campground passing through this summer. Not the best I've stayed in, but certainly not the worst. The sites aren't too big if you have children running around. Caverns are expensive, but RV'ers do get a discount.
