Meeting Facilities 

Home of the legendary fairy stones, this park is well known for its 168-acre lake adjoining Philpott Reservoir. The park is just minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Attractions include cabins, a campground, group camping, an equestrian campground, a conference center, hiking trails, lake swimming, rowboats, canoes, paddleboats, kayaks, picnicking and two playgrounds, including one in the water. 50 single tent sites, 4 yurts. RV sites are available. Camping is available from the first Friday in March until the first Monday in December. Campsites have a fire ring that can be used for campfires and cooking. Two vehicles plus the camping unit are allowed per campsite. 6 group tent sites are available. The equestrian camp has electric-water sites. Sites can hold a camping unit up to 50 feet long. No tents are allowed. Sites have 20, 30 and 50-amp hook-ups. One vehicle and the camping unit are allowed on each site. Recreational yurts are a modern adaptation of an ancient nomadic shelter. Functionally speaking, they’re a cross between a tent and a cabin. The park has four yurts, which are adjacent to the group campground. Each yurt has a large wooden deck, a picnic table and a fire-ring with cooking grate.
