Question Big Rig Friendly campgrounds near Blowing Rock NC

We are going to Blowing rock in may for an art festival and would like to take our Motorhome, I am looking at either the KOA in Boone or Grandfather Campground in Banner Elk. I was wondering does anyone have any input on which campground is more "Big Rig" friendly? We are new to Rving and have just recently purchased our 40ft MH. Thanks ! gail

I have not stayed at either site but have found most KOA's to be big rig friendly (Boone says RV's up to 60'). I would take the time to call both and inquire...also you can view their camp maps online. Hope this helps a little.

We stayed at the Boone KOA last summer in our 40 MH, and I would not classify it as "big rig friendly". The forward turns into and out of our pull-thru site were very tight, and the gravel site was not at all level, neither front-rear nor left-right. ~~ I'm not familiar with Grandfather Campground in Banner Elk.

I would say ( Grandfather Mountan Campground ) We stayed at the KOA its tight and up away from anything. unless you want to go for App. football game. We also stayed at the Honey Bear campground that also was very tight. Had to back down and unhook my motorcycle trailer, before we got into a real jam.
Grandfather mountan campground is the place, for me.
