Fairy Stone Park VA

Would like to take the grands on a camping experience and wondered if anyone has stayed at Fairy Stone in Virginia? Looking for something with water less than two hours from Winston-Salem.

OMG - is that place still there? We camped there when we were kids - maybe 45 years ago and I remember having a great time. I bought my wife (many years later) a pair of fairy stone earrings and she still wears them from time to time.

I'd be interested in reading about your experience - have a great time!

Actually, besides being close the fairy stones are a big atraction. You know how much kids like to pick up stones. I do to. I brought back about 5 pounds of stone from Alaska. LOL

We have been to the park within the past year or so but not camping there. It is a great state park.
I'd also like to suggest the following within about 2 hours from WS and excellent access to the water.

Fairy Stone is a great park. Another park that you might consider if you haven't been there is Stone Mountain in NC. They have a fairly new CG which is excellent.

We have yet to camp at Fairy Stone and would be interested in what you have to say upon your return. We drove past it once and it looks charming. Virginia has great State Parks from our experiences at Grayson Highlands and Claytor Lake so most likely you'll be very pleased with FSSP.

Go to Floyd's country store (down the street in Floyd VA) Friday, get there well before 5 and get ready to listen to some great live Bluegrass. New band every hour, starting with Bluegrass gospel. Clogging is also mandatory there.
I had a site at fairy stone, but a lake front site became available at the COE campground ( I think it's called Goose Point) that we moved to.
No matter where you go, there you are.
