  • This is a hidden gem, and well worth a visit. Lots and lots of antique autos as well as other period memorabilia. The best part was the owner, who has an absolutely encyclopedic knowledge of each...

  • We didn't stay at the RV park - just visited the car museum. We've wanted to go many times but they're only open on weekends. But during this last visit to Galax we were finally able to make it...

  • This is my second stay at Old Cranks. Friendliest group of guys running it. CONVENIENCE It's a few blocks from Downtown--so access to anywhere in Galax is easy (and breezy--it's a windy city--which is good in the heat of summer.) Maybe about 20 spots (pull-thru) so even when it's full, it's not overwhelming. Reasonable price for full hook-up.
  • We're not "Resort" people. This cg is perfect for us. Gravel, lots of room, quiet, not crowded, pick your spot, register by blank envelope at the front door of the Museum. Enclose check or cash for stay and slip it thru the crack in the door. Be warned, if you pay with cash for a few days you may have to use multiple envelopes. We stayed 3 nights/$90 with discount and barely got envelope thru door crack. Never did see the "Old Crank" we talked to by phone. To bad this cg is not near our normal routes north/south, we'd make it a regular stop. And for a bonus we got to watch the first night of the Christmas light show in the park.
  • We decided to visit Galax on a whim and to check out the New River Trail. I was drawn to this place because of the museum next door. Figured it would provide a nice diversion. The website seemed a bit finicky on mobile, so I called the listed number and left a message. They returned our call shortly thereafter and described their policies. So we were able to make a reservation for a same day visit on short notice. Rates were very accommodating. Bathhouse was clean but the shower drainage wasn’t level and there was some water into the main floor. The site is in Galax’s “industrial corridor” but overall it was quiet. It could use some shade trees next to the campsites, but the guide was very accommodating where to park for shade. Everyone I met associated with the park and museum were very friendly and helpful. Overall a hidden gem that’s tucked into a spot where you wouldn’t expect to find mobile lodging. Highly recommended. Would hope to visit again.
  • Great location, great price. Had everything we needed. Bathroom and hot shower. Lot was great and right next to a large park which we walked over to. Bathhouse was large and roomy, but a little on the dirty side. Might have been because we were here very early in the season. Slept here 1 night while driving through. Perfect for our needs!
  • We were travelling and fell behind schedule, called 19 other places with no answer as it was a little after 5 at that time. By the time we found and called Cranks, 830 pm, they answered on the second ring and got us in immediately. We were driving a 40 foot class a plus 20 foot trailer. The owner showed up about 930 pm when we got there and he blocked the lane with cones so we had room. Excellent people, would highly recommend them to anyone. Wish we would have known about them before, we showed up as a rodeo was ending across the road, would have enjoyed watching it.
