Date of Stay: August, 2009
We've stayed here multiple times with the same pleasing experience every time. Clean CG, level site, no crazies running around. August is a tough time of year to sit outside at Crooked Creek b/c of the lack of shade trees but that's about the only drawback. Wi-Fi was down this visit but I use a Verizon air-card and it worked without problems. Also a ton of HDTV is available over antenna but they have SD cable too if you like that "stuff". The water pressure here is noted and they make sure and warn you that they have 105psi but I wonder if it's not even more! My last stay I had a regulator break and this stay my parent's next door had theirs break as well! Anyhow I've never thought of the regulator as an item to have a spare of but at Crooked Creek it is a good idea. Why they don't regulate their own pressure at a reasonable 60psi at their main service is beyond me but it takes some serious force to break a brass regulator. I pity the person with no reg!!!

The management of this park has slipped in the last couple years in my opinion. The site reservation system has become a mess, and our site we were sent to had people on it already! Ended up back away from the ocean even though there were tons of open sites for the entire length of the stay much closer (3 weeks). Also, with hundreds of open sites the management put someone on the site right beside us, with not even one space in between. That is not a sound practice with that many sites open. Seasonal motorcycle rules were not enforced and being awakened by someones Harley outside of quiet hours is not my idea of a vacation. We are heavily contemplating moving our standing yearly reservation to another park after 5 years of going to Apache.

Great campground and we intend on returning. Very kid friendly and good facilities. Seems well organized and it would have to be as big as it is! Pull through sites were level and pulling in was easy. Pulling out was a little tight b/c of the picnic shelter on every site but that's also in a 38' fifth wheel. Again very minor as it was doable without even having to back up. Slow and steady, no big deal. Great pool complex but it was absolutely teeming with people. Too crowded for my tastes but again not a big deal as I don't go to the beach to sit beside a pool. Beautiful small lake on site that was nice to look at. Easy beach access as well. Strong Verizon Broadband signal, didn't try CG wi-fi. Needed to complain about a neighbor starting a campfire in 40mph winds at his rental unit and ashing us out. Would have liked a quicker resolution to that by the staff. When we return we will not stay near the rental units. The units are clean and tidy but the renters are unaware of proper camping etiquette.

We stayed here 23 days and enjoyed it. Sites are clean, level and spacious; big-rig friendly. Wi-fi is a little spotty. Verizon EVDO is strong. Over the air HDTV is strong and all networks are available. Lake Keowee is gorgeous and we look forward to returning here. We stayed here for $26 a night weekly but the daily is $30. The only reason I withheld a 10 score was I think there need to be some shaded sites available.

One of the best County run facilities bar none. Very clean, very green. No WiFi access but my Verizon card worked fine with broadband coverage. If you are looking for a Christmas family spot this is fantastic with the Festival of Lights that they put on. It is phenomenal! We stayed here in a large rig and had plenty of room. Our parents also frequent this park in their Class A with no issues.

We enjoyed our stay here. Definitely will go back. We loved parking our rig and looking out our kitchen window at the dunes and the ocean. Left the windows open and could listen to the waves crashing. This is a massive campground but well run. The pier is interesting and the location is convenient for several conventions we go to at the beach. Sites up front can be a little tight. Those who simply must have paved roads and very nicely finished sites will be disappointed! I will gladly trade those in for the views this CG has compared to the ones right up the road. Just an opinion. YMMV!
