Deer Creek Motorcoach Resort Review
Your Peaceful RV Paradise in the Virginia Mountains
We heard about Deer Creek Motorcoach Resort from friends that own there and recently had the opportunity to visit this beautiful Class A only RV Resort. Located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains on the Virginia-North Carolina border, this is one of the most relaxing locations we have visited in our RV.

Located just outside Galax, Virginia at an elevation of 2900 feet, Deer Creek Motorcoach Resort offers a welcome retreat from the heat of the summer.
Welcoming and Friendly RV Resort
The first thing you will notice about this first-class boutique RV resort is how friendly and helpful the residents of Deer Creek Motorcoach Resort are! We arrived in a summer downpour and still the resort Ambassador Jean met us at the gate to welcome us in.
Once the quick summertime rain shower was over, we realized that not only were we guided to our beautiful site but there was a welcome sign with our names on it including our dog Rider!
Perfectly Manicured Beautiful Custom RV Lots
The second thing you will notice about Deer Creek is how beautiful and well maintained the lots are. Our lot is privately owned and had an outdoor kitchen and a cute log cabin casita. When you decide to visit Deer Creek as we recommend you do, ask if there are lots available that allow you to use the individual amenities. Our visit was just for 4 short days, and since the property had been winterized from the prior season, we didn’t ask to use anything.
All the lots in Deer Creek are customized and the Homeowners Association takes care of the grounds, so everything is immaculate.
Clubhouse With A View
The Clubhouse was closed during our visit due to health precautions being taken for COVID-19, but there is a large covered deck complete with rocking chairs and outdoor seating and a wood-burning fireplace to enjoy on cool mountain evenings.
Safety Throughout The Resort
In addition to the social distancing and sanitizing procedures being followed at DCMR, we noticed something else that we have never seen in any other resort. There are AED stations set up throughout the park.
