We have mixed feelings about this park. The location is excellent. It is close to Charlotte (15 miles) and it is in the area of Virginia wine country. We were there in the winter and the hills are still beautiful with vineyards littering the countryside. The staff wasn't as friendly to us as other reviews have said. They had a flat effect, not unfriendly but still not going out of their way to be friendly. The cable connection was extremely limited. It was like they selected the lowest package of cable just to say that they have it. Wi-fi connection was poor. There is a portion of the campground that is up on a hill. The sites seem nice but we took a walk up there one night and heard some domestic fighting between a couple that made us want to leave. Another night we were hanging out by our fire and heard some shot gun sounds coming from that direction. We were concerned to say the least. The staff was nice enough to let us run our golden retriever in an open field next to the office. We stayed over three weeks, but probably won't do that again. I would recommend staying in the lower portion of the park and only for a short period of time, just enough to visit the sights. This RV park is going to be the best you will find in the area. Our rig was 40 Ft. long and we had no issues getting in or out.

This is one of the best RV parks we have stayed in since we left home from our Outdoor resorts lot in California. The staff is very friendly and the park is really nice and spacious. We meant to stay just two nights and ended up staying for six. Nice biking and jogging trails, the RV sites are long and spacious.The trees are aesthetically pleasing. Very close to down town Charleston. Gated after 10pm and they give you a password to get in that is constantly changing. Great dog park where the dogs can socialize and it's next to a lake, so that if your dog likes swimming he/she can. We are definitely coming back here again. I highly recommend this park!

It is true, this park can be expensive. A little known secret though, is that once you get there (unlike other Outdoor Resorts that we have stayed at), there are some very motivated owners who are willing to lower their rental price due to the recession. When you call the main resort number, they won't tell you that. We were just planning to stay there for the weekend and decided to stay longer when we found a cheaper lot to rent which are many. The resort is really nice. The people are friendly. The cable connection is clear, and we found out WiFi is available for people staying only on long term basis through the owners connection with the association. Data port available in one of the club houses. Be aware, the only disappointment we had is that the only cell phone connection that works out there is Sprint and AT&T. We had Verizon! A problem, since we full time and work from our rig. Very pet friendly with a dog park, Pools with Jacuzzis , although one of the Jacuzzis was not up and running. The resort lots are on an executive size golf course so watch out for flying balls hitting your rig if you on a golf course lot. They have tennis court, horse shoes, volley ball court and the place is fairly close to the Temecula Vineyards. Owners have built out their lots to proportions fit for kings! It is quite entertaining to see them all. We had a very nice stay, and will come back again for sure!
