We were going to stay here for a couple of nights while visiting some of the sites nearby as they were identified as being “Big Rig” friendly. Not! The park has easy access to & from US-15. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads and sites were narrow with some tight corners and vegetation encroachment. The pull through sites were not long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. The sites were NOT level! We could not get level. There is an extensive tree canopy so access to the southern sky for satellite reception is poor. We were unable to get reception. From the standpoint of a big rig owner, this place deserves a rating of 1, but the rating given was for a more general use by other types of RVs.

We stayed here for a couple of nights while visiting some of the sites nearby as they were identified as being “Big Rig” friendly. Not! The access off the main road is not an easy transition due to the grade. It could create a high center issue. On top of that, on the main road there is a corner just before the access to the park so sight is extremely limited and the speed limit in this area creates even more of a problem for the limited sight. There were only a few sites that could accommodate a “Big Rig”. Those sites were in the upper portion. The interior roads were gravel. They were narrow and could use a grading. We were put in the “400” area. This area is NOT suited for big rigs. It can best be described as a horse pasture (it is right next to the horse corral). The road is in need of attention. The ever tightening circular drive in this loop has a gravel base but has grass growing through & over it. The road is narrow and difficult to find. The sites in this area were very narrow, uneven, and not well defined. One RV ended up blocking the road by not staying in the site so getting out was even more difficult than getting in. It was difficult to get onto the gravel parking area of the site. The sites were generally NOT level. Not much privacy between the sites. This area does have good access to the southern sky for satellite reception. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. There was an outside table. WiFi reception was poor. Could never get connected to the WiFi receiver. There seem to be a lot of long term residents. No designated pet area but there was sufficient area to walk dogs along the roads. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. From the standpoint of a big rig owner, this place deserves a rating of 1 but the rating given was for a more general use by other types of RVs.

We stayed here for a couple of nights while traveling through. Not much to say other than there isn’t a lot of other parks to choose from. The park has easy access to & from Interstate 84. The park is located at the end of street which parallels the Interstate. The park is along a river. Checking in was interesting as no one was in the office. There was a sign directing incoming RV guests to go into the restaurant. The staff there looked around for the RV park staff but couldn’t find one. So the restaurant staff registered us and used the restaurant’s credit card machine to accept payment. The interior roads were gravel. The sites were a mixture of grass or gravel. The roads were narrow and the sites were not well defined. One RV blocked the road by not completely pulling into the site. The sites were generally level. Not much privacy between the sites. They have some full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The connections are about in the middle of the sites. They also have what looked like electric and water only sites. Believe those were 30 AMP sites. A portion of the park is open to the sky as there are no trees so satellite reception was good. There seem to be a lot of long term residents in the area of the park covered with a tree canopy. This area wasn’t very inviting. No designated pet area but there was sufficient area to walk the dogs along the roads and near the river. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers/laundry room. Didn’t look in because the building looked scary.

We stayed here for a week to visit the Boston area. There were only a few other parks to choose from. The park has easy access to & from Interstate 495 via Hwy 1. But the public street (Thruston St) from Hwy 1 to the park was narrow, collapsing along the outer edge, and had low hanging vegetation which hit our RV. The park had gated entry which required entering a code to enter and leave. Didn't understand why you needed to enter a gate access code to leave. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The pull through sites were long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. Some sites were not even close to being level. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50/30/20 AMP), & sewer connections. The connections were located at the entrance end of the sites. There was an outside table and fire pit. A large part of the park is covered with trees and only a smaller portion is open to the sky. The tree canopy created a problem both for satellite reception and acorns falling. We ended up under an Oak tree that was dropping acorns on our RV for our entire 7 day stay. Of which only 2 days the park was full. We couldn’t move in the site due to the location of the utility connections. When we made reservations, we asked for a satellite friendly site. After we arrived, we couldn't get satellite reception due to the tree canopy. We asked to be moved but there was no other site available due to the Good Sam rally scheduled for 2 of the 7 days of our stay. So for 2 days of the 7, we had to endure the acorns falling on our RV. The WiFi required to register an account with a provider. This seems invasive. If the WiFi is included, then it shouldn't require registering. The dog park was very large. It was fenced. But it was grossly uneven between the area for small dogs versus the area for the other dogs. The area should have been split either 60/40 or 50/50. The small dog area was pitiful. There were sufficient areas to walk the dogs around the park. There were bag dispensers and collection containers around the park for waste. Check in was average due to the counter staff being busy answering phones. As with a lot of businesses these days, it seems that the customer standing at the counter gets lower priority than a potential customer calling. During the rally check-in, the 3 inbound lanes where burdened so that in coming traffic couldn't get by. The concierge service was very helpful in planning our outings to Boston. We had no use for the other facilities (snack bar, exercise room, disc golf course, biking area, activities & sports fields, meeting hall, Wellness center with massages, and multiple pools) so paying for them in the rate was a poor expense on our part. The snack bar was closed for almost all of our visit. There seem to be a lot of long term residents but most seemed to be in a separate area. But it seemed there was a long term resident next to us that drove his ATV through our space to get it to the rear of his space so he could wash it rather than going around on the park road. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers/laundry room but they looked nice.

We stayed here for a couple of nights to see the outer banks area. The park has easy access off US-17 but the entrance sneaks up on you. US-17 is a divided highway so access is only available South bound. North bound access is available from Dawson Cabin Rd. It is directly across from the Marine Corp New River Air Station – Camp Johnson & Camp Geiger . But there wasn’t much air traffic during our stay. The park is on a former mobile home park so the sites are unique. The interior road is sand/gravel. The sites are grass & sand. They are pretty wide and long but the “premium” sites (the only pull throughs) are not level. There is a slight slope depending on where you park on the site. There is a mixture of full hook ups – water, electricity (either 50 or 30 AMP), & sewer connections. The utility connections are about midway along the side of the sites. Privacy between the sites is based upon the distance between the sites. There are very few trees in the park but the park has an area of trees toward the SW. The trees didn’t interfere with satellite reception. WiFi reception was good. There seem to be some long term residents but they were in another area. The designated pet area was a small area along the road and back edge of the park but it was not fenced. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park roads. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. There were some garbage collection stations around the park. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. We didn’t use the restrooms/showers but did use the laundry room. The laundry room fit the need.

We stayed here for a couple of nights to see the outer banks area. The park is not easy to reach. Not mentioned in any of the other reviews, is the last mile and half which goes through a rural residential area. The rural road is very narrow. Although there is a painted dividing line, neither side of the line was wide enough for a motor home. So you have to drive to the middle of the road and hope no one comes at you as there really is no place to go for opposing traffic to pass. The good thing is that the first quarter mile of the road is where most of the residents live. So once you get past this area, there are very few chances to come upon someone going in the opposite direction. Then the last half mile of the road is a paved, single lane road. The good thing about this portion of the road is it is straight and you can see the campground at the end. So you will be able to see opposing traffic coming at you. The park had gated entry which required entering a code to enter. The exit is automatically controlled when a vehicle approaches the gate(s). The interior road is paved, one lane wide and runs in a circle around the centrally located 5 acre lake. The sites were gravel with a concrete patio that has an outside table. Just a few pull through sites. Most of the sites are either back in or pull in so the utility connections for the two sites are centrally located between them. But that requires a lot of hose length to reach the fittings. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The sites were generally level. Privacy between the sites is based upon the distance between the sites. There are very few trees in the park but the park is ringed by trees. The trees didn’t interfere with satellite reception. WiFi reception was good. There seem to be some long term residents but they were in another area not around the lake. No designated pet area but there was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park road. There were no bag dispensers around the park to pick up waste. Only one dumpster which was located near the office outside of the gated area. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter.

We stayed here for a couple of nights to see the area. The park has easy access to & from Interstate 95. The interior roads were gravel. The sites were grave,l but bordered with old railroad ties making them very narrow. Some of the sites had a concrete patio with an outside table. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections. The utility connections were about mid way down the site but the fittings were not easy to connect. The sites were generally level. Privacy between the sites is based upon the distance between the sites. The park had two separate areas. One that was covered by a tree canopy making satellite reception unlikely. The other one had a clear view of the southern sky so satellite reception was good. WiFi reception was good. There seem to be some long term residents but they were in another area. The designated fenced pet area was adequate. There was sufficient area to walk dogs along the park road and along the nearby public roads. There was a bag dispenser next to the fenced dog area to pick up waste. No dumpster available but there was site garbage collection. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. They offered a Good Sam discount so our nightly fee was $44.54. The park was near Interstate 81 (within sight) but access was along narrower secondary roads past a school. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads and sites were narrow. The pull through site was just long enough for our 40’ RV with the toad attached. The park has a significant slope on the back half. Not much privacy between the sites as they are pretty close together. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections which were about midway along the side of the sites. But this is another park that doesn’t grasp the basic need for a level parking pad and that sewer doesn’t flow up hill. The parking pads were sloped so leveling was an issue so staying connected to the toad was not an option. Some sites required extensive blocking to get level. The sewer connection was on the uphill side of the sites. No trees so no obstructions to satellite reception. Park supplied WiFi reception was poor. They couldn’t fix the problem during our stay. Really no designated pet area but there was sufficient grassy areas and along the roads. There were no bag dispensers around the park and the only garbage was the dumpster at the front of the park. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. The GS discount wasn’t applied to the site fee when stay was extended one day.

We stayed here for 2 nights. They offer a Good Sam and returning guest discounts. The park is near Interstate 81 but the access requires travel along some narrow roads, through a small business district and into a rural residential area before you reach the park. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads were of sufficient width but some of the corners were a little tight. The sites were narrow. The pull through sites were just long enough for our 40’ RV with the toad attached. Not much privacy between the sites as they are fairly close to each other. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections which were located about midway along the side of the site. But this is another park that doesn’t grasp the basic need for a level parking pad and that sewer doesn’t flow up hill. The parking pads were sloped so leveling was an issue. The sewer connection was on the uphill side of the sites. There are a lot of trees in and around the park. Some trees were close enough to create a problem for slides on the sites with tree encroachment. There seemed to be a lot of long term residents mostly along the outer edge and the back end. Some sites offer a view of the southern sky for satellite reception but check with the office when you’re registering to make sure you get one. Our Verizon hotspot reception was adequate. There were some designated pet areas along the edges of the park. There were no bag dispensers and the only garbage can to dispose of waste in was the centrally located dumpster. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The park is near Interstate 75 but access is along some busy streets and then transition into a residential area with narrow streets. The GPS announced our arrival before we actually reached the park so we had to drive a little farther down the road to reach the park entrance. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads and sites were narrow. The pull through sites were not long enough for 40’ RV with the toad attached. The sites were generally level. Not much privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connections which were generally located about midway along the side of the site. There was an outside table and a fire pit. But the neighbor’s fire pit was very close to our coach. Good that they didn’t have a fire. There are a lot of trees in and around the park. Some trees were close enough to create a problem for slides on the sites with tree encroachment. The park was divided into two sides. One side had the long term residents (seemed to be a lot of them) and the other side was the short stay guests. Some sites offer a view of the southern sky for satellite reception but check with the office when you’re registering to make sure you get one. Park supplied WiFi reception was intermittent. No real designated pet area but there was sufficient grassy areas and along the interior roads. There were no bag dispensers and the only garbage can to dispose of waste in was the centrally located dumpster. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. There was an auto race track nearby that created some noise on Saturday night.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. They offered a Good Sam discount. The park is a short distance from the Natchez Trace Parkway. It is off of Highway 145 (N. Gloster St). Transitioning off the highway requires a sharp 90 degree turn. The access road is paved. The park is very close to town even though it is in a wooded rural setting. The park was built on the side of a hill so the parking pads were cut out of the slope forming steps up the hill but they are level. However, the roads run up and down the hill and are rather steep. The interior roads are gravel. The roads were sufficient to get around the park. Surprising you don’t need to disconnect your toad to get around the park. The site parking pads are gravel. The pull through sites were long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (with 50 AMP), & sewer. The connections are about midway along the side of the sites. The sites are not uniform in design, shape or location. Didn’t seem to be any long term residents but there appeared to be some RV storage. The park is surrounded and encumbered with trees obstructing access to the sky for satellite reception but there were a few sites designated as satellite friendly. They did have an extensive cable station lineup. The trees didn’t seem to cause a problem for slides. Park provided WIFI worked well. Net10 cell phone reception was good. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. This was strange considering when approaching Tupelo there was tornado damage and the area experienced a tornado about 2 weeks after we left the area. They don’t accept credit cards so only cash or checks. Yes, they accepted our out of state check. There were two small designated pet areas but neither of them where fenced. There were bag dispensers and garbage cans to dispose of waste. There is a “nature trail” beginning/ending at one of the pet areas in the park.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. They offer a Good Sam discount. The park is right along US-61 N just south of town so it is fairly easy to get to unless you’re coming from town. Then you have to go past the park until you can make a U-turn across a 4 lane divided highway. Transitioning off the highway requires going up a short hill to reach a level area just outside of the office. The park is pretty close to town even though it is in a rural setting. The interior roads are gravel. The roads were sufficient to get around the park. The site parking pads are gravel. The pull through sites are long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. But this is another park that doesn’t grasp the basic need for a level parking pad and that sewer doesn’t flow up hill. It seemed that none of the sites were level & flat. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (with 50 AMP), & sewer but all of the utility connections were not together. The electric and water were on the side about half way. The sewer connection was at the high end of the site requiring an uphill run with a lot of hose. Not much privacy between the sites. The longer term residents seemed to be along the sides. There was a line of trees along one side which could obstruct access to the sky for satellite reception. There were no trees in the center of the park so no obstructions for satellite reception or slides. No park provided WIFI but our Verizon hotspot worked well. Cell phone was good. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. The bathhouse was identified as the severe weather shelter but its construction didn’t seem to offer much protection and it was above ground. No designated pet area. But there is sufficient room along the roads to exercise a dog. There were no bag dispensers and the only garbage can to dispose of waste was the dumpster at the office. There was a dog running loose in the park. When one of the other guests brought the dog to the office, the staff didn’t do anything to keep the dog from running at large even though the leash law is enforced by the city. We were offered a CD containing a tour for the NPS battlefield but the office wasn’t open when we headed out to the battlefield so we didn’t get to take advantage of the offer.

We attempted to stay here for a couple of nights. The park is easy to get to & from Interstate 20 unless you’re coming off of US-61 N. There isn’t much distance between the on ramp from US-61 N to the off ramp for Exit 1A and you have to cross two active lanes of high speed traffic (good luck) to reach the off ramp. The entrance to the park requires a sharp 90 degree turn off the main road onto a small access road. As you approach the park, the road has a downhill slope into the park that requires a tight right turn to get to the registration office. The interior roads are asphalt. The roads were sufficient to get around the park. The site parking pads are concrete with a small concrete patio for an outside table. The pull through sites were not long enough for 40’ RV with the toad attached. The concrete parking pads were very narrow – just wide enough for our coach but no room to step onto concrete upon exiting the coach. Only a few of the sites are even close to being level & flat. The sites at the lowest point in the park had standing water just off the concrete where you would have to step to get out of your coach. Not much privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & a sewer connection but all of the utility connections are located at the rear end of the sites. At check in, the front office staff said they only had 30 AMP sites available. We said we needed 50 AMP. So the clerk assigned us a space with 50 AMP. Due to the pitch (slope) of the sites we could never get level as we only have an automatic air adjustable leveling system so we left. Didn’t seem to be any long term residents. Wouldn’t recommend going into this park with anything long.

We stayed here for a night. They have a Good Sam discount. The park is close to US-209 but the access is along a windy and very narrow with a slight uphill grade secondary road making it difficult to remain in the lane of travel especially around the tight corners. The turn into park leads to a short (steep) uphill climb into the park on a gravel road. The interior roads and sites are gravel. The roads were narrow but there was sufficient room to maneuver. The pull through sites were long enough for our 40’ RV with the toad attached. The sites were generally level but some of them in the short stay section have a significant slope requiring extensive blocking to get level. No privacy between the sites. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (50 AMP), & sewer connection that were generally midway along the side of the site. There was an outside table. No fire pits but that didn’t stop anyone as there were burn marks scattered around the campsites where others have had a fire. There seem to be a lot of long term residents. There are a few trees around the park so there could be some obstructions to the sky for satellite reception. Our Verizon hotspot reception was good. There was really no designated pet area but there was a large grassy field and sufficient interior roads to walk dogs. There were no bag dispensers and the garbage collection was the dumpster at the front of the park. For being in a potentially hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. We would not stay here again if in the area.

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The park has easy access to & from Interstate 81. The road sign is small so you might miss it. The access road is paved but narrow, windy, and encumbered with trees. The interior roads and sites are gravel and narrow. The pull through sites were just long enough for larger coaches with their toads attached. Not much privacy between the sites as they are pretty close together. They have full hook ups – water, electricity (rates depend upon service), & sewer connections that were generally midway along the side of the site. But this is another park that doesn’t grasp the basic need for a level parking pad and that sewer doesn’t flow up hill. The parking pads were sloped making it difficult to level. The sewer connection was on the uphill side of the parking pad. The sewer fitting itself extended about 12 to 18” above the ground. When the issue was brought to the attention of a staff member, he agreed the fittings needed to be lowered but it was not done during our stay. The height of the fitting and being uphill from the parking pad made the use of sewer worthless. There as an outside table and fire pit. Part of the park is covered with trees and another portion is open to the sky. Most of the RV sites are in the area without trees. But there are some tree lines along the outer edges of the campground area. Site without tree obstruction offer a view of the southern sky to get satellite reception. Park provided WiFi reception was good. There was a designated fenced pet area with bag dispensers and garbage containers to dispose of waste. The rules prohibited leaving dogs unattended in the area. For being in a hazardous/severe weather area, there was no underground storm shelter. None of the structures in the park were identified as a severe weather shelter. This park is orientated toward families with children so there are a lot of activities for children which is reflected in the prices. Even if you don’t have children so you are not going to use the activities, you still have to pay the same price so we would not stay here again if in the area.
