North Carolina State Fairgrounds Campground, Raleigh, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice, clean park with full hookups, good WiFi and some OTA channels available. Near NC State College. Great staff. No it's not a "resort", but we found it suited our needs very well. Would not hesitate to stay again. Had no problem finding the park, employee gave me the physical address and was very helpful. We camped at North Carolina State Fairgrounds Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Falls Lake SRA / Holly Point Campground, Wake Forest, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Reserved for 7 days. Had a 38 ft 5th Wheel. We were aware that only 30 amp service available. Experienced in conserving power, used only one AC and one lamp, occasional TV. Within 1 hour, we had lost power multiple times. Could not make contact by phone with any employees in park. Drove to entrance gate 3 times; maintenance came and advised nothing they could do, our loop was "worst loop and notorious for losing power". Temp was 95 degrees. Second day was worse, lost power every 15 minutes, again forced to drive to look for maintenance. They advised no other sites were available. We were down to one small electric fan and night light. Decided to spend day away from camper for relief; returned home to find no power. It's after hours, no help to be found. Third morning, still no power. Talked to neighbors who were experiencing same problem. Finally had to call the NC State Reservation System because there is NO way to contact anyone in management at park without driving to hunt them down. The reservation clerk said he was "so sorry we were having difficulty and No Refunds for early departure." I told him we could stay in a Walmart parking lot for free and have as good a service as they were providing. He transferred me, at my demand, to a consumer complaint lady who once again said " no, we don't give refunds". After a very heated discussion she said well I'll open a case for review and if you leave you might not have to pay for remaining days. I told her that wasn't going to work and I would challenge the charge to my credit card. So, long story short...this park is continuing to rent sites that they are aware are not up to par, could possibly cause electrical fires and take your money. Maintenance says State Govt has allocated 2 million to upgrade electric but can't be used until 2020. Stay away...beware...protest and complain. No Power Available for entire stay !! I agree with the concept of natural beauty in state parks, but the grass and vines and weeds were out of control here. We relocated to a State Fairgrounds Campground; $30 night, full hookups, great staff!! To be continued! We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Holly Point Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
