The Rocky Knoll sits on about two acres of wooded land on a knoll with a breathtaking view of the mountains. Bring your family, pet and your tent to enjoy this beautiful secluded campsite which is conveniently located to Hanging Rock State, Pilot Mountain State Park, Belews Lake and Winston-Salem. This land has been in the family for many, many years. We just love the solitude on the Rocky Knoll and wanted to share it's beauty with others who enjoy nature.The Rocky Knoll is a beautiful, secluded little haven to sit and enjoy a magnificent mountain view. Gather around with your family for a nice evening fire in the provided fire pit. Pitch a tent on our 12 x 12 tent mound and enjoy nights in the country. Or bring your RV with a maximum length of 22 ft. Two picnic tables are provided for your outdoor dining. We do not have electricity or running water at this time. But, we do offer what we call the “Poop Shed” as a primitive toilet. But if you prefer you may bring your own camp toilet, The Rocky Knoll is conveniently located 7 minutes away from Walnut Cove, 20 minutes away from Winston-Salem and about 25 minutes away from Hanging Rock, Pilot Mountain and Belews Lake. There is a Frisby Golf course 9 minutes away too. Pets are allowed but please keep on a leash and clean up after them.. We do not live on the property but we are about 5 minutes away in case you need anything.

Great spot! Beautiful view, adorable decorations. Definitely want to come back in the fall or spring when I can enjoy it more without worrying about the heat!

Little slice of camping paradise
This was a perfect spot for a few days away! The hosts are especially responsive and checked in (via the app) early on to make sure everything was perfect. It was. The space is completely private. The knoll is covered in a leafy canopy and has a gorgeous lookout. We awakened to songbirds and often enjoyed a gentle breeze. This is a very easy place to camp—a rare find! We’ll be back in the fall.

A nice view and spot to crash for the night however, it is somewhat close to a manufactured home and the campsite seemed to be covered in ants. Overall we had a quiet and good nights sleep.

The Rocky Knoll
Very nice campsite, but......
For being in a populated rural area the Rocky Knoll feels surprisingly remote. The site is roomy and easily accessible and the great view of The Sauratown Mountain range is unmarred by any visible buildings or roads. Even at night no lights are seen across the vista. There is the occasional sound of a dog or voices from down in the hollow below the knoll. But at night it is perfectly quiet. Except for, as a few other campers have mentioned, the chance for gunfire. Both nights we spent were interupted by barrages of gun shots. from the hollow. The first night it was relatively brief, though still jarring. On Friday night it started up at 10:30 pm, after we had been asleep for an hour. And it was coming from 2 different locations, one on either side of the knoll. It went on for quite a while, with pauses while reloading or switching firearms. We never felt threatened or unsafe. We knew it was just target shooting, which usually doesn't last too long. But still not relaxing. Not wishing to discourage anyone from camping here, as we did enjoy our stay, but just giving a heads up so you can be prepared. And after it stopped, it was perfectly quiet up there. As temps were in the 90's, we did not have a campfire, but the host does leave some non-potable water to use for dousing a fire before leaving the campsite or for cleaning the poop shed bucket. The host was also easily reachable and accommodating.
