Need Campground in Hot Springs, VIRGINIA

Has anyone stayed in Hots Springs, VIRGINIA? I have a travel job up there and wondered if anyone could recommend a good spot. 50 AMP and open in the Winter.

Hot Springs is VERY remote. I think the nearest FHU campground that might be open in winter is Buckhorne just north of Clifton Forge. Exactly where are you going to be working?

The Homestead Resort is the biggest industry in the whole county and has no camping facilities.

Give me some more info and I can make some calls as I live near there.

The nearest "city" for much more than groceries is here in Clifton Forge and our best store is the best hardware store I've been in. We have a whopping 3,900 people in town. I doubt all of Bath County has 8,000 people.

It is colder in Hot Springs and they get more snow than we do here. We go to Key West from Nov to May every year to avoid the cold. Neither here or Hot Springs gets a lot of snow but the Homestead has a ski area and makes snow, hence it gets cold and stays cold.

Travel nurse at springs long term care in hot springs. Assignment ends mid November. Is it too cold to have rv up there then? Have a Toyota FJ 4x4. So snow should be no prob. Ice is different. Just have 4 spinning . Worry about getting rv back out on snow.

It will be below freezing at night, probably 50% of the time or more. Might have some snow, though worst will be in Jan-Feb if things are normal.

Hot Springs to Buckhorne is probably about 25-30 miles, going thru Douthat SP and across 39. Good road, light traffic, about 1/2 crooked.

Via Sulphur Springs Road (rt 606) about 30 miles, EXTREMELY crooked, winding, narrow and DANGEROUS during winter conditions.

Via US 220 thru Covington, 40 miles from Buckhorne to HS. 15 miles interstate, rest 2 lane, some mountain.

All miles are approximate.

I'd call your future employer and ask if they know someplace up there to put your RV. You will definitely want hookups. If we don't go to Key West for the winter I winterize my RV no later than Halloween.

Any way you go to HS will be up hill and down hill leaving there.

If I can answer any questions feel free to ask.

I think I'm just going to leave the RV home this time. They will make other arrangements for me. I don't want to worry about the pipes in the RV

Thank you so much for all of your help. I really appreciate it. Enjoy Florida
