This is a mountain resort that offers cabins and campsites. Most sites are for tents with no hookups. Only 6 sites have full hookups with 30 amp power. Only 2, possibly a 3rd large enough for our 36' motorhome. Made my reservation early enough to get one of them. Cabins appeared to be well maintained. Bath and toilet facilities VERY clean. Beautiful setting on the Pemigewasset River - lots of trees. Owner / managed is very friendly and accommodating. General store offers essential food items. In spite of tight space, we really like this place and enjoyed our 4 days. We will definitely return.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here four nights. Excellent "base camp". Short drive to New Haven, New London, Groton, Mystic and many other cities. Family owned/operated; very friendly and helpful. Family resort atmosphere. Excellent facilities with ice cream bar and variety of snack foods avail. Large number of seasonal visitors, indicating a satisfied base. We definitely will stay here again.

Family owned and operated; very friendly and helpful. Has a pool and a reasonably well stocked store. Sites & interior roads are gravel but in very good condition. Power was strong & consistent. Sites are level. Excellent ice cream bar. One of the best maintained c/g we have been in recently. This was an overnight stop but would make a good "base camp" for a several day stay to explore the area.

This park is part of the Dixie Caverns attraction. Clean and tidy but old. First site assigned had a faulty electric pedestal. No problem relocating, and the maintenance crew was working on the problem within 15 minutes. No amenities, but good for an overnight stop. Convenient to Roanoke.

Date of Stay:

We are spending 3 1/2 months here this winter. Mostly park models and permanently attached travel trailers & 5th wheels. Around 25-30 sites actually available for RV's. Size of sites are just adequate. Several "old-timers" that have been coming here upwards of 20 years have told me this used to be a beautiful well-kept park. But since Encore bought it, it has really gone seriously downhill. Two months into our stay and they have not done a general mowing of the weeds (no grass). Virtually no enforcement of rules, such as cargo trailers permanently parked on front of sites, no maintenance of permanently installed trailers. Several full time residents are construction workers on motorcycles; no maintenance or cleaning of their sites or trailers. Park has had 6 managers in 5 years. The office staff is very friendly and accommodating. Given the park condition and nature of many of the full time residents we will not stay here again.

Good campground. We enjoyed our overnight stay. Interior roads and sites are gravel. Pull-through spaces are not overly spacious, but good for an overnight stop. VERY friendly and accommodating owners. Good power and water. CAUTION: the directions in the Trailer Life directory tells you to exit I-75 at exit 136 and take US 25 south. This is a bad road for a tall motorhome. USE EXIT 129 AND GO NORTH ON US 25.

Excellent CG. Picturesque. Spacious sites. Very quiet. Good power and water. Friendly helpful owners; strong enforcement of rules. One nit: interior roads are mostly gravel and VERY narrow. Great place for an overnight or a month.

Date of Stay:

Large spacious sites. Most are fairly level, some can be a challenge. Many sites now have full hook-ups, incl sewer. More amenities than can be listed. Policies allow non-members to stay and use facilities. Not listed in campground directories, so you need the phone number. A great spot for a night or a week.

Date of Stay:

Sites a bit tight. One leg of our 50 amp electric service was weak. Have to drive through a really bad neighborhood to get to it. Nice & very busy restaurant at the entry; convenient and was not a noise problem. Very convenient to visit St. Louis but driving in and out made us nervous.

Date of Stay:

KOA campground. Very nice park. Well cared for. Spacious sites. Great overnight stop. A bit pricey, but that is the case with most KOA campgrounds.

Date of Stay:

We spent 4 nights here over the July 4th holiday. They offer many resort-type amenities. This place is VERY remote and in a lower elevation area. There was NO cell/wireless Internet coverage; No off-air TV and the park's Wi-Fi and cable service was not functional. Some spaces are open for satellite TV. Having said that, we liked this resort and would go back. Very quiet. Friendly owner/manager.

Date of Stay:

Typical COE facility. On Lewisville Lake. Spacious sites. No sewer connection, but dump site available. Well maintained. Can't go wrong here.

Date of Stay:

We were part of a 20 coach rally. The owner and office staff could not do enough to make us at home and comfortable. Spacious sites; good power and water. Between 2 highways, but did not notice the noise. A great park for overnight or extended stays.

Date of Stay:

This park is a regular stop for us. We have had several overnight stays and once spent a week here. This is a very old campground and there are NO amenities. But it is comfortable like an old glove. Every time we have been here the office staff has been very friendly and helpful. Sites are long and narrow, but they stagger the RV's so you don't feel like you are on top of each other. Of course, the fact that there is no other campground anywhere near Louisville has some influence.

We love this park. A bit remote for just an overnight stay. Great place to spend a couple weeks. Significantly better and more economical than the 3 state parks we stopped at (but would not stay). Beautiful views & very quiet. Office staff very friendly. I would avoid the 4 spaces right in front of the office; pretty busy and tight space. Other sites are very spacious.
