Loved this park. We stayed here for 2 nites on our way to Asheville, NC. Easy access off of I-40. The office staff was wonderful. I can't remember the gentleman's name but he was vey very nice and gave us lots of information about the area. The bathroom was beautiful and very clean. I used the park shower instead of my RV since it was so nice. The park is very clean, very well maintained. We had a pull thru site which was level, we didn't have to do anything to level the RV. The sites are close but since we were only there for a short time it did not affect us. Very wooded sites. We would stay here again if we were in the area. We camped at Jones Station RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
Close to Durham. Shopping close by, and Tanger Outlets are only five miles away.

The Road going up to the campground is very intimidating while pulling an RV, especially the last turn into the campground. Pray no one is coming down at the same time you are going up! The park appears to be much older than the photos, We made our reservations three months in advance, but the Premium sites were already reserved for the dates we needed so we reserved a Deluxe site. Upon check-in we were given Site #19 which was directly to the side of the office. It was very difficult to get into this site with our 41' Fifth Wheel. We asked for a different site, but we were told they were booked. The site was not in the wooded area as the website describes. The site was very unlevel. The back of the site was so high we could not use our outside kitchen at all. We had nowhere to put our camp chairs, and the only place to sit was at the picnic table which was on a wooden deck which overlooked the road coming up the mountain ridge. Since we could not cover the picnic table with our dining tent, we chose to eat inside our RV. Our fire pit seemed to be in the road and way too close to our RV, so it was unusable to us. We would not consider this particular site as Deluxe nor was it worth $50 nite. We would consider it more of an overflow or leftover site. We were told we were given this site because of the length of our RV. There is a turn around point in the campground that fortunately we did not need to use. Our friends who arrived with us with their 41' RV did have to use this turn around, and they almost jack knifed their rig making the turn, as it ends at a tent campsite with cars parked. Fortunately for them, other campers there were able to direct him and help him to get out of that turn. There was nowhere to walk our dog. There are turkeys all over in our campsite which drove our dog crazy. There was a sign for "Pet Walk" but we never did find it. The view from the mountain ridge was breathtaking, but not worth $50 or $70 nite. We will not return to this park. We camped at Campfire Lodgings in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice shaded campground. It's obviously an older park. Lots of trees, so many trees that on many sites you cannot fit an RV, only a pop up or tent that can be maneuvered around the trees. In fact due to location of some trees and bushes on our reserved site, our 41' Fifth Wheel did not fit even though the site was listed as 45' in length. We got lucky and found an open site and office staff allowed us to move. We had to park on an angle to fit and used long cord to reach our electric box.
Not a lot of space between campsites. We had to put our picnic table and dining canopy behind our RV as there was no room between campsites. We stayed in the B Loop. The bathhouse was very clean, although it could use some updating. Had to stoop to fit under the shower head and the water only stays on for approximately 11 seconds at a time. Had to keep pushing the button while stooping down. A little tricky!
Gray water dump station at each bathhouse. Two dump stations available when exiting the park.
The park is centrally located to the beaches so we were able to make day trips to the different beaches. Also located near lots of antique stores and flea markets. At the park, take the pontoon boat tour for some history of the park. The campground offers free bicycles for you to use. Well maintained trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. Campground staff were very nice and very accommodating. We walked around making note of campsites we would fit in for future reference, as were several other people. We will definitely go back. We camped at Trap Pond State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Love this park. Well maintained, clean. There are two sections to the park- an older and a newer section. Newer section more accommodating for big rigs. Lots of space between campsites, giving you some privacy Playground for children but it is located in direct sunlight so mostly used in late afternoon or evening. Lots of trails for hiking and biking. They needed a little mowing while we were there. Office staff very nice. Camp Hosts extremely helpful and friendly, and they kept the park very clean. Amphitheater where they had a free concert. Children's splash park, and pool. Boats to rent. Some shade in the newer section. The older section is very well shaded. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
