Welcome to the Dan River Campground. Dan River Campground has new owners and we want to welcome you to our campground!
Dan River Campground has been entertaining RV and tent campers in a family atmosphere since 1992. We are a family owned and operated campground located in a beautiful quiet area on the Dan River.
Nick and Anne Soudas are your hosts.
The Dan River Campground has a family atmosphere with peace and quiet being the norm, however, we also want to encourage campers to have fun and enjoy the beautiful outdoors of North Carolina. We welcome all campers to come and visit our campground.
Dan River Campground began river trips in 1993 with 2 canoes, 6 float tubes and a pickup truck. Today, Dan River Campground and River Adventures books water adventures on the Dan River. We have more than 30 canoes and kayaks and over 200 float tubes to choose from for your river adventure. To book/reserve river trips go to: Dan River Adventures.
Reservations are recommended due to the high volume of people between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
We have 28 RV sites that have full hookups (electric, water and sewer) and 5 RV sites with partial hookups (electric and water, no sewer). Five tent sites have electric and water hookups and five tent sites are "primative" (no hookups) and offer more privacy. There is a centrally located bathhouse with hot showers and flush toilets for your convenience.
Each site has a picnic table or a convertable table. Most sites have a fire ring. Marked trails make a loop around the campground, and for over a mile, you see views of beautiful trees/woods, Dan River and Sharp's Creek. Walk quietly and you will be able to sneak up on the abundant wild life including otter, beaver, turkey, deer, ground hogs and herons. Along the way you will pass the canoe access point. There are fish in the pond and you can do some catch and release fishing there. There are a variety of fish species in the river for those who can wade in or navigate the sometimes steep bank.
Canoe, kayak and tubing trips depart from the campground. If you have your own boat, our river access point is available (to launch your own boat) to campers at no charge. We have a 20 x 40 flat bottom wading pool that is 4 feet deep and open Memorial Day to Labor Day. You can play volleyball, frisbee, shoot some hoops, play ping pong, throw horseshoes or corn hole at the campground or just sit around and enjoy the outdoors. WiFi is available at no charge with the daily camping rate. Please ask for the password.
Bringing pets to the campground is a privilege extended to pet owners. There is a two pet limit. Unfortunately, rotweilers and pit bull breeds are not allowed, and if you know your pet to be, in any way unfriendly to anybody, please leave it at home. Pets must be quiet and on a leash everywhere in the campground and when your dog poops you are expected to scoop :) Pets may not be left unattended (even if on a leash).
We have a modest general store with ice (summer time), firewood, propane and some camping supplies. We will be redocorating the general store soon and plan to include more camping supplies and sundries. We fill propane tanks including built in tanks on motor homes and fork lift tanks. A Super Walmart is conveniently located 3.5 miles from the campground.
