Depends on what you consider the Blue Ridge. I really like the Mayberry Campground, close to Mt Airy, NC. It's a neat little town. A Pork Chop sandwich at the Snappy Lunch will take you back to the 1950s. If you were ever a fan of Andy Griffith you will love the place. The campground is inexpensive, honors Passport America, is very well kept and your coach will fit fine.

We used Endless Caverns for our base camp. Day trips to the north and south from there. Plenty of room for big rigs, and you don't have to navigate miles of mountain roads getting to the place.

Unique as the campground is cut into the side of a big hill via rows of terraces that the campsites are set up on. This allows views that are pretty nice, but the downside is about anywhere you want to go is up or downhill. Unique as well as there are caves on site.

We were treated really well the few times we've been there, but heard they changed hands, and no experience with the new owners.

We did Endless Caverns last summer. You'll get dusty (crush and run instead of pavement) but otherwise a nice, quiet campground and the cave tour was fun too. I found the staff to be pretty friendly there.

The Va Safari isn't too far down the highway either. Our kids really enjoyed that.

We stayed at Mama Gertie's outside Asheville, NC last fall, we loved it. There are two areas, the regular campground and the upper one with magnificent views. We stayed in the upper area and were pleasantly surprised that we were able to drive to our spot without unhooking the toad. In fact, we never unhooked the car caddy, really convenient!

We've been to The Great Outdoors RV Resort in Franklin, NC and Riverbend Campground in Hiawasse, GA and enjoyed them both and of course there are many in the Smokies (part of the Blue Ridge range) for you to choose from.
