Nestled in the trees just above exit 14 off I-77 in southwestern Virginia, the Matthew's Carrollwood Campground & Big Fish Park awaits you. While only a walking distance away from shopping, and major restaurants, its peaceful and serene setting makes one think they are miles away from everything.
Established over 40 years ago and now under new management, Matthew's Carrollwood Campground & Big Fish Park is a full service campground offering shaded pull through sites for RV's, and semi private to remote wilderness type tent sites. We also have camping cabins, a rustic fishing cabin, and a travel trailer for rental use as well.
Matthew's Carrollwood Campground's park like atmosphere that enables you to get away from the busy world we live in and get back to the simplier ways of life while not having to drive forever to get there.
While the Campground is beautiful, it is best known for its stocked fishing ponds full of carp, catfish, bluegill, pike, bass, and many more. Fishing here is a experience. Daily catches of 24" and larger are not uncomman. Larger fish like "SIMBA" our huge monster catfish and "Old Charley" our friendly catfish (not small either) remind us that there is always a bigger catch coming. Fishing is always free to campers. Catch & release only.
