Bridge Closures as of Nov. 17: Due to damage sustained during a recent flood event on the Doe River, there are two trail bridges in the park that are no longer available. The bridge connecting the wetland boardwalk trail to Picnic Shelter 2 is gone, as is the bridge connecting the Group Camp area to the Riverside Trail. Walking access along the western bank of the Doe River is still available via the Riverside Trail access point from Picnic Shelter 2 or via the Fred Behrend Trail access behind the Camp Store in the Campground. Thank you for your patience as we work to replace these bridges.
Rates: $15 — $35 Taxes and fees are not included. Rates subject to change. $5 reservation fee per site is non-refundable.
All of the park’s 107 family campsites have a grill and picnic table and are located near a bathhouse with hot showers. A dump station is located at the campground check-in. The campground has 87 RV sites with water and electric hookups and 20 tent sites, each with water. The tent camping area does not have electric hookups.
Four group sites, which will accommodate approximately 25 people each, are available. The group sites are located just south of the individual tent-only camping area of the Roan Mountain State Park campground. They have large gravel tent pads, picnic tables, fire rings, grills, and water spigots at each site. There is no electricity, camping is only allowed on the gravel pads (not in the surrounding grassy areas), and it is approximately a 1/4 mile walk to the nearest bathrooms/shower houses. These four sites may be reserved up to two years in advance.
