Julian Price campground is along the Blue Ridge Parkway near Blowing Rock, a really great location with easy access to Boone, Grandfather Mountain, and Linville Gorge. I've camped here a few times at the tent sites. Most recently was in April, before all the loops were opened. The bathrooms also weren't open yet - just portable toilets, but the cost...

Our family has been going to this campground for years. It is a chance to get back to nature and enjoy the peace and quiet. It is a primitive campground with no electrical hookups which I like. We are tent campers and take our kayaks out to the pond. Even if you aren't in A loop, you can put kayaks...

Julian Price was a great answer to our need for a quick getaway and a bit of solitude. Staff was amazingly friendly and accommodating. Campground is fairly minimalist; they didn't even have firewood for sale. 😀. The thick rhododendron and trees make for a lush environment. There is only one loop fir camping along the lake itself so next time...

To be in such a golden location, Julian Price Campground was a huge disappointment. A) The tent pads are entirely too small. B) The bathrooms were absolutely atrocious - I'm not going to elaborate, but if you have to do anything other than hover to pee, you're going to be disgusted. I'd much rather poop in a hole in the...

After a long day on the blue ridge parkway we looked forward to a peaceful night camping. We found the campground nearly deserted which felt rather strange on the 4th of July. It is clear why people do not stay here. The sites are small, muddy and extremely graded. There is nowhere in the near vicinity to get fire wood....

Don't be fooled by the pictures of the waterfront sites. There are only a few of them. That said the campground was pretty big. I would say maybe a third of the sites were so small or overgrown that they weren't able to be used unless maybe you drive a motorcycle and bring a hammock. The sites were rough. Bathrooms...

I have camped at Julian Price Park for over 10 years. I use to tell family and friends how nice the facilities and Rangers were. They use to hold programs about nature and would come by and ask if we needed anything. Sadly, that is not the case anymore. It's more like the Wild West. You now check yourself in...

I just needed a cheap place to sleep before going water tubing the next day and the back of my Jeep in this campground was as comfortable as could be. Just don't leave food outside for the Bears. Paying was straightforward at the ranger station. There were plenty of spots on the Wednesday I was there, but was told reservations...

Clean and we'll kept. Variety of sites for tents and RVs. Some loops right on the lake. Ten minutes from Grandfather Mountain, 30 min to Boone. Leaves were gorgeous. We did not have any hook ups. Dump station and water easy in/out.
