We have visited Virginia multiple in our travels. We love the mountains, the music and the people.
We stumbled upon the Floyd area from info we got at the Tourist info stop on the Interstate while passing through this year. We detoured and fell in love with this area. We came back in 2017 and plan on spending a lot time here in 2018.

We stayed at Chantilly Farms Campground again this year. Wonderful owners and right in the middle of all the music action. The downside is very poor cel reception and only on Verison (which we don't have). The upside is the park has very good WiFi. Be sure to go into Floyd for the Friday night music.

A "Don't Miss This" place is Wildwood Farms just a few miles out of Floyd. Lots of music action and events. Say hi to Sue when you go. She is a wonderul lady who hosts some of the best music events in the area.

Another of our favorites and possibly the best of the best as far as we are concerned is Goose Point COE campground. A beautiful park with wonderful hosts. No WiFi but real good AT&T 4G/LTE service. The upper campgroud is tight however we managed to fit our 38' 5th Wheel. The lower campground has more room and si a bit more bit rig friendly. This campground is also within reasonable driving distance of many music venues.

Stuart Virginia is another music hub in the area with a yearly Wayside Bluegrass Festival. The campground, though though kind of rustic looking seems to be good. We plan to try staying here in 2018 and will report. We did attend the first evening of the festival in 2017. This was kind of a pre-event show but was a good taste of what was to come.

We spent about a month in this area.

As of May 15, 2019 we are in this area for about 3 months and will keep updating
