We tried Mayberry Campground after leaving another campground in the area that did not live up to our expectations. Mayberry was exactly as advertised. It was open, easy to access, clean, and friendly. It is not the type of campground we typically prefer though. We like the more secluded, shaded spots and this was definitely not that. We stayed at the upper most terrace and it is worth noting that the cable was not hooked up on those sites and the Wi-Fi was very weak. But we chose that site to keep our kids from bothering everyone else in the lower sites and to have a better view of the mountains. What others have said about the road noise is right on. It is loud and it is constant. At least at the upper level sites. Maybe if you were in the lower sites it would be muffled somewhat. That being said, the sunset over the mountains both nights was well worth it. So even though it was not our typical campground, it was nice and served as a nice base camp for visits to the wineries and Mt. Airy. We did fish the two ponds and actually caught a few too as a bonus!!
After reading previous reviews, we selected this campground during a visit to the Mount Airy area. We, unfortunately, were a bit disappointed. The sites were certainly secluded and wooded but other than the pull through sites in the middle, they were tight, not level, and difficult to get into. We had to try three times to find someone at the office to pay but when we did they were extremely nice. The thing that bothered us the most were what appeared to be the permanent units that seemed overrun the place. These were not the snowbird type setups, these were campers (some pretty nasty looking) that appeared as if the owners actually lived there full time and went to work during the day. The site across from us sported a large diesel utilities truck that fired up promptly at 6am to go to work for the day (waking us all up I might add). Overall, the feeling of the place was a bit seedy. We shortened our planned stay and moved on to another campground nearby. Now to be fair, we did stay during the "off" season so maybe it is a completely different place during the prime season. It just wasn't the family friendly, activity filled place we read about. We would consider staying there again during the summer months when there would be more kids there and the pool would be open.
