Taps RV Park is conveniently located in Asheville, NC, just off I-40 and on 70. It is located a mile from an entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is a small, privately run park with one owner, who has the property up for sale because he wants to retire. The owner is a friendly guy and is not on site much, but he is available by phone if needed. The location is unique, but super convenient! Taps RV Park is on route 70 across from an Arby's, behind a Mobil gas station, and next to a B&T Bank, yet private & quiet enough to get a good nights sleep and feel safe. The sites are concrete with a gravel center. This is unique and lovely, because your jacks come down on level concrete! The sites are close together, but there was plenty of room to put our slides out and walk between other RVs. Each site had a concrete pad with a picnic table. There are only forty-seven sites in Taps RV Park. You park your tow vehicle or toad in front of your RV perpendicular to your site. Each site had a concrete slab area with a picnic table. TAPS has great wi-fi, two unisex bathrooms with one toilet and one shower per bathroom, but no pool or playground equipment. We did not hear any road noise, which was amazingly pleasant for how close to Route 70 and I-40 Taps is located, but there are trains that go by the back of the park, but they do not use their whistles, so they did not disturb us. The photos on their website are current and accurate, yet hard to find. Go to AshevilleTapsRVPark.com; Park Information; About the Park to view their photos. If you go to the Photo Gallery tab, it says under construction. If you are looking for a fancy RV resort with a lot of amenities including a pool, this is not the park for you. If you want a small, peaceful, convenient, reasonably priced RV park to park your rig, Taps RV Park is the perfect RV park for you. We camped at Taps RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

New Management as of May 2015!!! They are awesome!!!! Endless Summer is a great RV Park! The horseshoe drive has recently been widened (asphalt) and many lots have just been re-done with new, larger concrete patios. Most lots can accommodate a second vehicle (+ your RV) at no extra charge! The park itself is quiet, quaint, and has many trees for some shade. Two pets (with restrictions) are allowed and there is Wi-Fi in the community clubhouse. The laundry facilities are nice (4 washers and 4 dryers) and are reasonably priced. The showers are nice (2 per sex) with a changing area for each shower. There is a year-round heated swimming pool, shuffleboard & horseshoes! Water, sewer, and electric are included in the daily monthly and annual rates! By far, our favorite part of Endless Summer are the park managers who are very responsive if there is an issue, and always available to help. They even help you park in your spot when you arrive. The park has every type of mobile home - drivable and permanent, 5th wheels and pushers. All ages of mobile homes are welcome, short term, so it does not matter how old your unit is; however, they did have their permanent tenants re-paint to freshen up the look of the community, which we appreciate. There are activities every day - including water aerobics, cards, games, bingo, and darts. They also hold painting & computer classes and have a social event once a week. The only negative thing is that the speed bumps are really big, especially on Marie Lane, so make sure to drive slowly. They do have a low section in the middle for golf carts, though! It is nice not to have people speeding through our neighborhood. Endless Summer is very convenient for shopping, banking, and dining - just a 5-minute drive. It is very conveniently located off 75. We love the Naples area and love the location of Endless Summer. We are so happy here, that we are now annual tenants! :) We camped at Endless Summer RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed for two nights in early December of 2016. It was one of only four campgrounds open year round within a one hour drive of Lehigh Valley, PA. It was quiet and not very busy. You could tell it was hunting season from the dear hanging from the swing set. The roads are gravel and have some potholes that are avoidable for the most part. There were a lot of trees, but we were able to get our 40' 5th wheel parked without a problem. There was a play area and it also had a pool. It was closed for the winter, so we cannot comment on the pool. There are dumpsters on site. There are no sewer connections at the campsites, but there is a centrally located, back-in dump station. They also offer Propane for purchase. Others have posted reviews on other sites stating that it was confusing because you drove through a "utility lot" (which you do), but the campground gives you a map and it is easy to find your spot with the map they provide when you check in. We would stay here again off season. We were grateful they were open in early December and we gave it a chance, even with the other reviews. We did not use the restrooms, so we cannot comment on them. They are pet-friendly as we have indoor cats and a neighbor had a dog. We camped at Jugtown Mountain Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

This KOA Kampground is clean, safe and quiet. It offers lots of amenities such as a pool, horseshoes, shuffleboard, a playground, and a dog walk area. The staff was helpful and friendly. The campground has lots of trees, but they are cut high enough not to scratch your roof. Mix of driveables, towables, cabins, and permanent homes. The roads are tight, but staff escorts you to your site. Kids and pets are welcome.
Our campsite was #84 and was a pull through site. It was a paved site with a concrete pad and picnic table dedicated to our spot. We had full hookups including sewer and 50 amp service. The site was mostly level with a slight slope on each side to avoid pooling water. Other spots are grass. The wi-fi reached our camping spot as they have repeaters set up around the site; however, it was slow during the day and VERY SLOW at night when more people were using it. Our AT&T mobile & data service was excellent, though. They also offer free cable, which we did not use.
Getting into the campground with our 40' 5th Wheel was very tight as there is a fence around a couple of small cabins that we came very close to swiping; however, my husband is a great maneuverer and he did great. Note to driver: swing wide right, watch your left side.
They have a laundry room, restrooms and recreation room on site but we did not use any of those services. Store is sparsely stocked, but is open 8am-8pm. There is a dumpster for trash on the way out of the campground and a recycling can for aluminum cans only.
This is a great location for access to necessities. It is right off highway 301, but we didn't hear highway noise. Grocery stores, gas stations (with diesel), and Walmart are located less than 5 minutes away.
The only negative: There are train tracks nearby that you can hear the loud, sometimes never-ending whistle at all hours of the day and night, but not often.
We would definitely stay here again, even with the train noise. We camped at Starke / Gainesville N.E. KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
