Pinnacle, North Carolina
The Lowe’s overall rating = 9 out of 10 stars
This small, quiet 10-site campground was basically a gravel parking lot with concrete pads, tables, fire pits and full 50-amp hookups that worked well. No trees, which would have been nice since the weather was very hot while we were here. The bathrooms were located within the new office building and were gorgeous with nice clean showers. The campground was nicely landscaped, with an attractive pond in the middle and a great view of Pilot Mountain. The owners were very friendly, and it’s located close to Pilot Mountain if you like to hike, and Mt. Airy if you are an Andy Griffith fan. When we reserved our site, the owner gave us alternate arrival directions because we were in a large motorhome. Apparently there are a couple of turns between the freeway and the park that make it difficult to arrive using normal GPS instructions, but we didn’t see any problem. The interior road was gravel. The free WiFi worked very well for us. The Verizon signal was strong as well. There was no laundry room at this park. There was a grocery store and good year-round vegetable/fruit stand within 5 miles, and other major services could be found at Winston-Salem, about 20 miles south. Although a bit pricey, we would definitely stay here again.
