Greystone RV Park, Pinnacle, North Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

For our purposes, which was to have a base of operations for exploring the area, Greystone was perfect. If you are looking for a "destination" campground with activities galore, this might not suit you. Very friendly owners who are all about making sure the customer is happy. They are very knowledgeable of the local area and a great source for things to do. Nice long level sites with average spacing in between. Great views of Pilot Mountain. Best bathroom/shower facilities I've ever seen in 22 years of RVing. Also, the best water pressure I've ever had in my rig. We had no problems entering the park from the west - and I'm towing a 41' fifth wheel with a long bed crew cab. Be careful leaving if you head towards US 52 - I had to swing well out into the opposite lane so my 5er would clear the brick pillars. Definitely spend a few days here exploring the area. We camped at Greystone RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Misty Mountain Camp Resort, Greenwood, Virginia

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in the lower full hookup section. Very nice site by a small creek. It is the one we reserved, so no problem there. The site was level and long enough for my 41' rig plus long bed truck. A bit tight getting into and the exit is challenging due to trees on the inside of the turn and a narrow road so you can't swing wide. As others have said though, you are right on top of your neighbor here. We could hear every conversation they had when they were outside. My slides opened almost into their fire ring, so we had to pull well forward to avoid a problem. The park is clean and well kept and has plenty to do for everyone. Cornhole, horseshoes, volleyball, jumping "pit" for kids, extensive game room, weekend activities (bonfire, karaoke, free ice cream, pot luck), fishing pond, and plenty of room to walk our dogs. Plus it is close to many sightseeing activities in the area. We really enjoyed our stay here and most likely would come back. The only thing holding us back might be how close the full hook up sites are to each other. We camped at Misty Mountain Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

River Park RV Park, Valdosta, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for 3 nights while I was working at the nearby AFB. They have a very odd policy that you can't make reservations earlier than 1:30 PM on the Monday the week prior to your arrival. Very inconvenient when I have to know there is a place to stay for work. I ended up losing a $30 deposit at a backup location because I had to cancel inside of a week out. (River Park was much closer and more convenient to work). Since there were only 2 other rigs in all 3 upper transient rows, the policy seems even stranger.

The 2 staff members we dealt with were nice and came by to make sure we were OK after we got set up. The park is well kept with nice landscaping and a very clean bath house. The landscaping can be problematic in the pull throughs because the sites are very narrow and, depending on where your doors are, you may step out right into a bush! Our site was on the end, so we had a little more "yard" and just enough room for our slide outs. As mentioned, the transient sites are very sloped! Site C-15's slope exceeded the capabilities of my Level Up legs by far. It took 3 layers of Lynx levelers under each tire and a couple of levelers under each leg to allow the system to level the rig.

As mentioned, this park is right on the I-75. We were the closest site to the highway and it is LOUD! We had friends come visit and we had to stay inside so we could talk. Others have said that their coach shook when large trucks went by. I can verify this as 100% true! When we walked down the hill, the noise seemed to be much less noticeable, but many of those sites seemed to be taken by seasonal/permanent folks. Overall, this was a suitable park for an overnighter or short stay, but based on their reservation policy, I would probably not plan to come here again. If you do stay, bring plenty of levelers and some ear plugs! We camped at River Park RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground, Swannanoa, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $70.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our 3rd time here and our first in the premium sites with decks. The view is spectacular! No problems getting a 41' fifth wheel and long bed dually up or down the mountain. The bath house on the top level is almost complete and looks great inside. We used the main office showers and bathrooms at times and they were spotless. The wi-fi and phone signal (Verizon) are much improved from our last visit here. The cable set up is a bit odd in that you get one remote that operates the box, so if you have more than one TV, you have to pass the remote between rooms. Not a huge deal since we don't watch much TV, but could affect some campers.
The owners work hard to make this park a great experience. They are very friendly and helpful. I only had 2 very minor issues all week. First, I think there should be exceptions for the one car per site rule. The pull thru sites up top have plenty of room for a small second vehicle (which we had) and saves a very long,steep walk down to the office where extra cars must be parked. Second, and a bigger issue, was the manager enforcing some unwritten rule about not moving the picnic table off the deck. We had moved the table literally 5 feet to be under our awning so some of the the large crowd we had could eat outside during the rain, which we had a lot of that week. The table and chairs are wrought iron, so it's not like they could be damaged by moving them, and we even said we'd put them back after the rain stopped. No dice. Kind of a bad rule, and furthermore - if it's a rule, put it in the list of rules you give at check in.
One last note - be very cautious if you have a long trailer or MH and stay in the lower sites. We saw many gouges in the pavement where folks dragged the back of their rig pulling into the site. Very steep approach and exit.
Overall, we really like this campground and all there is to do nearby. It's a bit pricey at $70 per night ($5 more per extra person), but the views are worth it. We camped at Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

New River State Park, Laurel Springs, North Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

New River is a beautiful little state park in the mountains, about 15 minutes from the quaint little town of West Jefferson. The park is small, with only about 20 total sites. A limited number of sites have full hookups and are big rig friendly. I had no problem with a long bed truck towing a 39' fifth wheel. The approaches to the park on 221 are also big rig friendly, though going slow is recommended the last few miles from Jefferson northbound on US 221.

The park has about 3 miles of very nice hiking trails, as well as a canoe launch and some day use areas along the New River. Very scenic. There is also a small museum and interpretive center at the park office that is worth a visit. The facilities are all in great shape and the bathhouse was immaculate (and heated!).

Plan to visit West Jefferson's downtown area for shopping and a number of eateries, including a nice brew pub. Also, the drive up Mt Jefferson is well worth it for some gorgeous views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. A bit longer drive (one hour) will get you to Stone Mountain State Park, which is also a must see.

Overall, this is a great little park if you are looking for somewhere to just unwind and maybe do a little bit of hiking and sightseeing. We camped at New River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tanglewood Park Campground, Clemmons, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

Well, it's taken years, but I have finally given a park my first 10. I try to rate a park not just based on my own preferences, but as I think the majority of campers would hopefully look at it. With only one or two very minor blemishes, this park is still a 10. Within Tanglewood Park there is everything you might want - fishing lakes, horse stables and trails, mountain bike trails, paved bike/jogging paths, canoe rentals, golf courses, picnic pavilions, playgrounds, a dog park, a weekly farmers' market, and more. There is no way you could stay here and be bored. We visited in the off-season so some of the activities were closed, but there was still plenty to do. The campsites themselves are very nice. It has paved roads and sites, though as mentioned, some are quite sloped, so bring leveling blocks if you can't self level. Sites are wide and there is enough space to the sides and behind your site that you don't feel cramped. The Wi-Fi was the fastest I have ever seen at a campground, hands down. We are not TV watchers, but the cable channel selection looked robust. As mentioned, the bathhouse is old, but it was spotless (and heated). Cleanliness is a hallmark of this park. The entire facility was incredibly clean and well maintained. We observed crews cleaning streets, repainting roads and facilities, and even blowing leaves off the trails each day. In short, besides not having fire rings at the sites, and a few sites being a sloped, there is nothing this campground lacks. We will return here as soon as we can. We camped at Tanglewood Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Myrtle Beach Travel Park, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $73.00
Overall Rating:      

We've stayed in four of the big parks in Myrtle Beach and this is the best, hands down. Best part - no golf carts!! We could actually walk our dogs, ride our bikes, and drive in and out of the park without being run down by kids in golf carts. The sites are close, but better than the other parks due to the cabana that every site has. The downside is the sites are sandy, so bring lots of mats and a broom. Sites are mostly level and hookups are conveniently located. Our site had enough room for a 39' 5er, my long bed truck, and my son's car. We did see a lot of ants, but since I sprayed ant spray around the rig as soon as we got there, we had very few get inside. The park has great facilities and is conveniently located to WalMart, Tanger outlets, and Barefoot Landing. The WalMart and outlets are within a long walk/short bike ride. There is also a golf course right across the street, as well as a paved bike path that runs for about 2 miles. The beach is narrow at high tide, as others have said. In order to accommodate more people, the county has banned the monster-sized gazebo/tents people have set up at the beach in the past, so leave yours at home. Now you may only use a beach umbrella and it can't be set up (unattended) before 8 AM. Other odds and ends: the Wi-Fi was basically unusable on the northeast side of the park. Weak signal and very slow! Bathrooms are excellent and clean. The staff is very friendly. The check-in parking area is very crowded during a weekend check-in period--move slowly and watch your turns! The interior roads are sand and gravel and get muddy during rain, so bring some old shoes! Overall, this is a great park and about as close to a 10 as I've been to in quite some time. We camped at Myrtle Beach Travel Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ocean Waves Campground, Waves, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is the best option on the Outer Banks. At less than half the price of the neighboring campgrounds, it is a great deal. They really recovered nicely from last year's hurricane damage and have spruced up the park somewhat. They even added deck chairs at the pool. The Wi-Fi seemed improved from last year, though still a bit hit or miss. Still no soap or paper towels in the restrooms, which is puzzling. There had been a near record amount of rain in the weeks before our visit, so (no fault of Ocean Waves) the place was a swamp. Several sites were unusable and almost all sites had puddles of water and mud. Not much they can do about the lack of drainage on a barrier island, but be advised to take old shoes or boots if the forecast calls for heavy rain! Also, due to the rain, the mosquitoes were horrendous. They literally swarmed you when you step outside. However, the campground has a curious rule banning torches. We have a tiki torch that burns citronella liquid that is a must for mosquitoes. I'd say if management won't allow such items, they better contract someone to spray the campground for bugs. All in all, a nice campground right on the beach and a great deal for the money. We will go back. We camped at Ocean Waves Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Cape Hatteras KOA, Rodanthe, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $114.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is still recovering from last year's hurricane, but is almost back to normal. They rebuilt a very nice pool and some nice looking cabins. The RV sites remain much like they were previously - sand/gravel/mud and a bit uneven. Given that, this park is WAY overpriced for what it offers. We stayed here just one night because we decided to extend our OBX trip by one day and the campground to the south couldn't extend our stay. The KOA staff was very helpful in accommodating my request for a pull through for one night. I was shocked when I checked in and I had to pay $5 per dog for one night (I had 4 on this trip, as I was dog-sitting an extra). So my total for one night was $114! Given that the sites are dirt and mud, we don't use the bathhouses, there is no wi-fi at the site, the cafe was closed Monday and Tuesday, the mosquitoes were horrendous, and I brought my own dog bags, I am not sure what that $114 was getting me. I will say the new ramps over the dunes are nice and the new bathhouses appeared nice, but short of that, you would be much better off to look further south for a better deal and nicer sites. We camped at Cape Hatteras KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Jekyll Island Campground, Jekyll Island, Georgia

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

A very nice park, but it has a few issues that keep it from being rated higher. The campground is very wooded, which makes July in Georgia much more tolerable. It is also very spacious, at least at the pull through sites. We had so much room between us and the next rig over that we thought there might be a tent site in between (there wasn't). As noted by a prior reviewer, the hookups are somewhat randomly placed, so check carefully before you unhook. Also, our sewer cap was slightly uphill, and it also clogged up when I tried to dump. Management had someone out there within minutes to work the issue, however. The campground is also very sandy as mentioned, so there is plenty of dust and your feet will be black if you aren't wearing socks and shoes. The biggest disappointment however, were the mosquitoes. Other than Alaska, I have never seen so many mosquitoes in my life. They swarmed us as soon as we were out the door. They even bite through clothing! We were told by a shopkeeper that they spray the island, but if so, they missed the campground. We could not even sit outside. Last, there are some trees very close to the roads, so watch carefully when you pull in and out. I was able to maneuver a 38' fifth wheel OK, but there wasn't a lot of room on some roads to make the turns. Other roads are fine - it is just luck of the draw, so check things out before committing yourself to a road. Overall, we enjoyed the island very much. The beaches were quiet and peaceful, though the water is very silty. There is a very nice municipal beach near the convention center, 5 minutes drive from the campground. The campground is adequate and decent for the price, just bring lots of bug spray! We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Geronimo RV Resort, Destin, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a tough campground to rate because it will be very appealing to some and not so much to others. For us, just looking for a nice place to park our rig close to the beach, it was a very good experience. There are only 29 sites, all with concrete pads and deep enough for a big rig and vehicle. There is ample parking for extra vehicles close by as well. The grounds are very well kept, with thick grass between each site. In addition, there is a huge field where dogs can be walked and are allowed to run off leash (if no other dogs or people are present). The beach is a short walk (8 minutes from our door to the public access). Overall, we found this place to be well kept and the manager is very involved with keeping it so. The only (minor) complaints we had were that there was no picnic table at the sites and the Wi-Fi was very weak and slow. If you are looking for a great location to park your rig (at half the price of other Destin campgrounds) while you enjoy the beaches and sights of Destin, I would highly recommend Geronimo. If you are looking for a campground with a view, a pool, and activities for your kids, you will need to look elsewhere. We camped at Geronimo RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga, Rossville, Georgia

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice campground located southeast of Chattanooga, about 1/4 mile into Georgia. Very convenient to all of the sights of Chattanooga; 15 minutes or less drive. Also, very convenient to I-75, which leads to a fairly regular turnover of sites. We used this campground as a base to sightsee. The staff was very helpful in recommending things to do and see. The battlefield just south was very interesting, and Ruby Falls and Rock City are a must. The packet they gave us when we checked in was very useful. It even included recommended directions for cars vs. big rigs, as the approaching roads to the campground are quite narrow and curvy. The campground has a small but well stocked store with reasonable prices. There is also acres of open space for dog walking and riding bikes. I would camp here again if visiting Chattanooga. We camped at Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga in a Fifth Wheel.

Deep Creek Tube Center & Campground, Bryson City, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice park in a great location. As many others have already commented on the tubing and other fun activities nearby, I will just say that I agree that this is a great family destination with tons of stuff to do nearby. The park is very clean and well kept. However, the roads do get quite muddy when it rains. My biggest issue with this campground is that it is really only barely big rig friendly. West Deep Creek Road, which brings you to the campground from Bryson City is VERY narrow and winding. My dually took up the entire lane and I had to "borrow" some of the other lane on some curves. Also, the campground itself has very narrow lanes and fences and rocks right to the edge of the road. If you are towing anything over about 34 feet, be very careful when you make the turns to the big rig spaces. The spaces themselves are just fine for a big rig - plenty wide and deep and more than enough room to back in. Again, the hardest part is just getting to the spots. So while you certainly can camp here with a big rig (my trailer is 38 feet), just take it easy and be very attentive. Lastly, I wanted to comment on the management. I found them all to be very helpful and knowledgeable about things to do in the area. Whether it was tubing, sightseeing, or places to eat in town, they had an answer and were willing to help. I did not experience any of the issues a few others have commented on in the past. All in all, a very nice campground that I would go to again. We camped at Deep Creek Tube Center & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

American Heritage RV Park, Williamsburg, Virginia

Date of Stay: November, 2011 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

I rate this campground as a strong 8. It is convenient to Williamsburg and surrounding attractions. The campground is nicely wooded, has level concrete pads, and nice, clean bathhouses. There are plenty of things to do in the park such as a long nature trail, horseshoes, basketball, mini-golf and what looks like a nice pool for the summer. They also have a very large fenced dog run for the pups. I have towed a 39' fiver into this campground a half dozen times and never had any issues with trees, obstacles or narrow roads. Take your time and you will be fine. Three minor things keep this park from a 9 or 10. First, the cable TV has always been very fuzzy here, as others have pointed out. Also, the Wi-Fi is very weak, and we were not very far from the office. I gave up using my computer after the first day. Last, if you are in the sites closest to the cabins, be prepared for healthy whiffs of sewage every now and then. There is a tall vent pipe of off the septic area that is quite pungent if the winds are right. Overall, you won't go wrong at this park. We camped at American Heritage RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Zooland Family Campground, Asheboro, North Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2011 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here so that we could visit the NC zoo and also to see some fall colors in the Piedmont. It is a beautiful area, and the zoo was awesome. Overall, I would give this park a high 7 as it is currently, but it is very apparent the new owners are making rapid and extensive improvements since they took over in June. I could foresee a grade of 9 in the not too distant future. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The campground was clean and very pretty, with some great hiking trails along the river. There is a nice catch and release pond as well. The bathhouses are a bit messy right now, but that is due to the ongoing renovations. The only issues I had with the park are minor and more due to the "geography" of the park, and are out of the control of the owners, who obviously care about providing a nice camping experience. First, there is a fair amount of road noise if you are in the full hook up section rows near the edge. Also, I felt a bit like I was at Myrtle Beach, as our awning almost extended into our neighbor's site. Not all of the pull through sites are this narrow, but many seemed to be. As the park was not full, I thought management could have spread folks out more. Also, the sites are not very long. With my 38' rig, it was almost jutting out the back of the site, and I could barely parallel park my truck in front without being in the road. Last, there is a decent slope in the full hook up area, so bring your leveling blocks. Otherwise, nice park, lots of activities (putt putt, bocce ball, pool, volleyball, and more), and great staff. I would definitely camp here again. We camped at Zooland Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
