I found the following ratings about Meadows of Dan. I thought this may help those of you that may still be "sitting on the fence" about this one.

This is a delightful small (only 20 places now) park that is building several small cabins and adding a few more pullthroughs, although those will be in the open, but will have satellite access (we did not in the woods.) The site is in a "hollow" so is nice and quiet, surrounded by farmland. The Blue Ridge Mountain Parkway is less than a mile away. The owners were friendly and kept a clean campground. The bathhouse, though small (2 stalls and 2 showers for women) was clean. The laundry room had a washer and dryer that were clean and the room itself was neat and clean. There is a phone there for local calls or to make calls using a phone card. We had a 40' RV and found sites #6 and #5 were easy to get into (back in), and the 4 or 5 new sites on the top of the hill that were pullthroughs were fine, but lacked atmosphere. There is a swingset for children and a horseshoe pit. You are only a mile from The Mabry Mill which is a "must see" on the Parkway. You are 10 minutes from the Olde Mill Resort We camped here in 2001.

It was cute. It was small. This campground is nestled in the mountains and just has an aura about it. I thought it was relaxing. My campsite was tight, but I did not mind. This is a nice weekend getaway. We camped here in a Travel Trailer in 2003.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This campground is a restful place to relax. There are no pools etc., but nature is the beauty of this campground. The roads are gravel and the place is small and growing, but the lots are large, shaded and not close together and the owner/managers live onsite, always ready to help you with anything you need. There are no closed gates to impose a curfew on you. Everyone was quiet and respectful of one another during July 4th week. The campground is just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. We do plan on staying here again. Many times. We camped here in a Travel Trailer in 2003.
