Lake Powhatan Recreation Area, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

The campground is one of my favorites. The Lake Loop has paved pads, the other loops have gravel pads. Some sites have sewer hookups as well as electric and water. Sufficient privacy between sites, bathhouse convenient to all sites and very clean. Camp hosts are abundant, helpful and pleasant. Very poor cell service with Verizon, and absolutely no Hotspot use here. Lots of bike trails nearby and Blue Ridge Parkway very near. Fishing is allowed in the lake. Swimming only at beach area. We camped at Lake Powhatan Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Hunting Island State Park, Beaufort, South Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

The grounds certainly took a beating from the hurricane last year. Many trees gone, underbrush gone, no more waterfront sites. Most of the sites lost the greenery which provided more privacy between sites. The park personnel was a mixed bag of competence and professionalism. The beach is still wonderful - 4 miles of sand and surf that is only accessible to the campground and day use visitors. Wifi is excellent. This is the first time I've visited in the summer, I usually visit in November and February, so typically no bugs. The mosquitos were very bad this time, so I don't know if this is the norm for the summer months. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

There's a new Walmart about 15 miles back toward town, many small seafood stands/markets between the campground and town. A couple of restaurants within 3-4 miles that have pretty good food and atmosphere. Nearby is Camelot Farms where you take a horseback trail ride or board your own horse.

Moccasin Creek State Park, Clarkesville, Georgia

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Convenient location for a hiking base camp or water sports on Lake Burton. Close to the Appalachian Trail and other hiking trails. Fish hatchery next door and good fishing nearby. The sites are very close together, and the campground is small. During the summer months it can get very noisy with boats and watercraft on the lake. Staff was very helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. The gate is locked at 10pm and unlocked at 7am. Very clean grounds and sites were adequate size. Water pressure good and electric was clean and stable. Has both small tent sites and can accommodate large rigs. Bathrooms were clean and showers had hot water. Firewood and ice available and a very small but well stocked "store". We camped at Moccasin Creek State Park in a Tent.

McKinney Campground COE, Acworth, Georgia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice campground with privacy between the rather spacious sites. I really didn't see any really bad sites. On the weekend the lake get noisy and busy with PWCs and boats. The roads and site pads are paved, with pea rock at each campsite which really helps with keeping the camp area clean from dirt and mud if it rains. The bath houses are small, but clean. TV stations are plenty coming out of Atlanta, but could not get the Satellite Dish to pick up a signal due to the tree cover. I really didn't see any really bad sites. Park staff can be a bit rude and very strict in rule enforcement. Deer were seen in and around the campground. Boat/ pontoon rental is available within 5 miles at one of the marinas in the area. We camped at McKinney Campground COE in a Travel Trailer.

Kentucky Horse Park Campground, Lexington, Kentucky

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Campground is big rig friendly, all sites are paved, but they are a bit narrow. Some sites have shade, some do not. Electric and water at every site. Campground store is adequate, and just a couple of miles away there is a convenience store, Subway Sandwich Shop, a gas station, and liquor store. This park caters to horse people frequently due to the horse park events. Most of the time, you can get to the Kentucky Horse Park by driving or walking out the back gate. Showers were clean, bathrooms were clean. Campground personnel were friendly, helpful, and professional. Most sites are level, but some with inclines, but not severe. We camped at Kentucky Horse Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Near the I-75 interchange there is a convenience store, Subway Sandwich Shop, a gas station, and liquor store. Also, just about 5 miles north on I-75 is lots of shopping - Lowes, Walmart, Tractor Supply (who also has propane) restaurants, retail shopping, gas stations, hotels, etc...

Fall Creek Falls State Park, Spencer, Tennessee

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park, most sites are paved, some are gravel. Big rigs might have difficulty getting into some sites due to narrow roads and tight turns. Loop A is family oriented with playgrounds. Hiking trail connector leaves from Loop C. Campground clean, facilities clean. No warm water in bathrooms during my visit in March. We camped at Fall Creek Falls State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hunting Island State Park, Beaufort, South Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2011 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

The staff and volunteers here are very helpful and friendly. The park store is stocked very well. The bathrooms are always kept very clean, however, they are old. There are sites on the ocean, but they are getting fewer due to the erosion of the island. Bike trails are very nice and level of packed sand. No grocery stores nearby, but a couple of fish markets within 5 miles have reasonable prices on fresh seafood. Beach is pet friendly. Lighthouse is a short walk down the beach. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hunting Island State Park, Beaufort, South Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2010 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Hunting Island State Park is a great beach campground, however, the island is eroding. Some of the waterfront sites have been relocated due to erosion. The camp store is stocked well and the park staff is professional and friendly. The gate is locked each night and the code changes daily. When leaving the volunteers will give you the code for the current day. The bathrooms are dated and the shower water temperature couldn't keep up with the number and length of showers being taken in the mornings. Taking your shower later or earlier than the rush will help in this matter. The beach is pet friendly and the lighthouse is a short walk down the beach. Park is clean and can accommodate big rigs. Not a lot of commercial establishments (restaurants or stores) are nearby. Expect to travel 10 miles or so for grocery or fuel. Wildlife is abundant - deer, raccoons, opossums, squirrels, birds, and in the summer months, loggerhead turtles come up to lay their eggs on the beach. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Black Rock Mountain State Park , Mountain City, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

The park personnel were friendly and helpful. The sites are level and have water, electricity, and cable TV. Bathrooms are clean and have sufficient hot water for showers. The road up to the campground is very steep with some curves. Roads inside campground are narrow and have some sharp turns. Not really suitable for big rigs. There are trails to hike within the park, a camp store, and amphitheater. This park is in a great location, with lots of attractions and things to do nearby. Near NC line, and close to Highlands, Franklin, NC. Dillard House nearby for good food, Sky Valley for skiing. We camped at Black Rock Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Davidson River Campground, USFS, Brevard, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2010 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of my favorite campgrounds due to the location and things to do in the area. Many trails leave right from the campground, both hiking and biking trails. Hiking, biking, waterfalls, fishing, swimming, Brevard and the Blue Ridge Parkway are just a short drive away. Sliding Rock is near, and for just $1 you can slide as much as you wish. In the summer the campground is a busy and crowded place with kids, and lots of them. Kids running, kids yelling, kids riding their bikes, BUT, quiet hour is enforced. If you prefer to be away from the children, get a site towards the back of the campground and away from the river-front sites. The staff here this trip went strictly by the book as far as rules are concerned. The bathrooms, including showers were cleaned every day, but the showers were hit and miss as to which ones had consistent hot water and good water pressure. There are very few sites with electric and water, but don't count on snagging one of these on a weekend unless you get here mid-week and stay through the weekend. In most loops you can run a generator 4 hours per day from 8am to 8pm. The roads are paved and are most sites can accommodate big rigs. Some sites have privacy, but others do not. You just have to drive around and find a site that suits your needs or desires. I have camped here in the winter and summer: there is no bad time to make this campground a destination. We camped at Davidson River Campground, USFS in a Travel Trailer.

Amicalola Falls State Park & Lodge, Dawsonville, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2010 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Nice campground, and the scenery is nice, but it is small. The lodge restaurant is a little pricey, if you were to consider eating there. The visitor's center staff were very helpful. The park was very busy all weekend and this is the season for the AT Thur Hikers beginning their hike. Trails were very busy. The only downside to this campground on this visit was the shower drains were not draining properly and the hot water did not stay hot very long. We told the staff about the shower drain, but it wasn't fixed when we left the next day. All in all, great park though. We camped at Amicalola Falls State Park & Lodge in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Powhatan Recreation Area, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Great campground! Camp hosts were extremely helpful, friendly, and professional. The sites allow for some privacy and are spacious. Whole campground was kept clean and the hosts attend to maintenance and upkeep regularly. This campground is very convenient to shopping in Asheville, but seems like it's deep in a forest. Bathrooms very clean, showers clean also. Big fire rings, big picnic tables, reasonable prices and location. The only down side is that this campground closes on Oct 31. I would camp here in the winter if it was open. We camped at Lake Powhatan Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Riverhouse Acres RV Campground, Canton, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

The camp hosts were very friendly and professional. They were very hospitable, and helped me back in to my site since I arrived after dark. The views are beautiful from the campground in one direction. The other views leave something to be desired. I would not say this campground is located in a country setting at all. Across a small field is a very busy road and there is no privacy at all at the sites nor the whole campground. No shade trees or shrubs separate the sites. Some sites had a picnic table, and some didn't. A couple of the sites were very junky looking because the occupants were not very neat and had stuff laying everywhere -even a porta potty out in the front of the site. The bathrooms were not filthy, but since there were open areas at the bottom of each wall, leaves and critters had easy access. They also were not heated, but probably would have been bearable if the bathhouse wasn't "open air". Again, the camp hosts were wonderful, but the campground is not what I was led to believe from the previous reviews and the campground website. We camped at Riverhouse Acres RV Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Unicoi State Park and Lodge, Helen, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2009 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

This was my second visit to Unicoi State Park and this visit was much better than the last one. The park staff at the lodge were very friendly, courteous and helpful. The rangers and campground hosts made rounds several times a day and were friendly. Nearby Helen has a couple of good restaurants, one being The Troll, but the shops leave a bit to be desired. The showers and bathrooms were very clean and most of the sites were pretty level. We camped in the first campground loop with the older comfort stations, but they were clean. Lots of hiking and biking are nearby. I didn't eat in the lodge restaurant, but others in my party did and they said it was good. We camped at Unicoi State Park and Lodge in a Travel Trailer.
