Date of Stay: May, 2012
We stayed here in May, our first trip to the Outer Banks. Loved the campground and the site next to the lake. Sites were clean and level enough for us. Never noticed the dog manure problem. Had to supply my own cable jumper from electrical panel to trailer, but no problem. We were in site #1, a little far away so Wi-Fi was on/off, but worked most of the time, and for all we needed. Staff was friendly, park was very quite and clean. We would stay there again.

This is a very nice, quite campground. The road 2 mile leading in is a little narrow, but there was a Class A motor home there and he was towing a car when he left. I wouldn't call it "Big Rig" friendly, but doable. There are pull trough sites available, but no 50 amp service. There are shady sites, and sites in the sun clear of trees if you have a satellite dish. No cable, no wi-fi, but Verizon cell phone did work. The bath house was very clean, and closed daily from 10:00 till 11:00 for cleaning. The sites may be a little close for some, but everyone was nice, and the campground was very quiet, no road noise. There's not much for children, but a lot of stuff nearby. Breakfast was provided Saturday and Sunday morning, and it's hard to beat good mountain water without any chemicals or chlorine in it. We enjoyed our stay and will go back.

We stayed free as part of a promotion, and had to go through a low pressure sales pitch. The campground was nice and quiet, but the roads are dirt, and there was some dust from all the golf carts. The pool may be small for the number of campsites. The bathrooms were very clean, and each section was a totally private bath with shower, sink, toilet, totally private and secure. The lake is catch and release only. Put-Put is available, as are shuffle board, horse-shoes,a volleyball court, and a children's play area. Wi Fi internet is only available at the lodge, and slow. No cable, but I did see some satellite dishes pointed through the pine trees. Sites were spacious and roomy, and shaded by tall pine trees. Not all sites have sewer, and there is an extra charge. This campground is part of the Coast to Coast Network.

Park was very nice, with paved sites, most of them level, a few double sites, and a few pull-through sites. All sites had 15 and 30 amp electric, but no water or sewer, although there is a dump station, and potable water spigots located around the campground. Be warned, the road leading in is dirt, and a little narrow, especially for motor homes. The campground is close to Badin Lake, with trail access. The restrooms weren't very clean, but it appeared that the host were just moving in for the season and hadn't started the cleaning routine yet. We stayed here in a travel trailer.

Very nice campground, completely paved road and parking sites, with a very fine gravel area around a movable picnic table. There are 3 loops, one with electric and water, one for tents only, and one with water spaced around for carrying to your site. There is a dump station and garbage dumpsters available on your way out. Electric and water sites were $20.00 while non-electric sites were $15.00, with a discount given for seniors. Bath houses were clean, though not well heated. Pets must remain on a maximum 6 foot leash, and with all the pavement, watch for youngsters on bicycles. Bicycle helmets required if under 16. We were in site 54 with nice stream behind this site. Plenty of wildlife and hiking available. We would stay there again.
