We had what was called a "Premium" site, but after we got here, figured they must use a different dictionary. Very uneven, no sewer, no view. For not having full hookups, you had a choice of paying $5 to have your tanks drained, or use the showers. There is almost always a line at the showers. DW stated there was standing water in the ladies showers, and the privacy curtain was less than adequate for the dressing area. While the food is good and interesting in the restaurants we found the prices to be a bit steep; and "Oh: we are out of that" to be a common comment from the staff. The lake is great but $30 per hours plus gas to rent a Jon boat? The dinner cruise on the Proud Mary was very good, the price was reasonable, the food was great, the staff helpful and friendly. If you already have a boat, or go with a group of people and book a pontoon boat (at least 3 weeks in advance) this could be a great place: but bring lots of money.

We were there Memorial weekend to visit one of our sons who is in the Navy, and of course it as pretty full. A number of sites are seasonal campers but all the equipment appeared well cared for. Campground, bathhouses, pool area all very clean. Only noise we noticed is what you would expect from children playing. The females in our party liked the locking door on the showers that first led to a small dressing room and then the individual shower. Excellent location on the North side of Charleston, SC for touring the area and hitting all the major attractions. Site size is adequate, our pull through site was a little narrow because of tree location which limited how we could position our trailer. On the down side the rec room only had a pool table and TV, and some of the staff we either overworked or indifferent. We will stay there again when in the area.

We had to go to the Greenville/Spartanburg area on short notice over Labor Day weekend. Cunningham had sites available, so after checking this site we decided to give it a go. The people are great, the campground clean, the sites large enough for the largest unit. There are some things to do in the area. For instance it can be used as a hub to hit the Biltmore in Ashville, Cowpens battlefield, Clemson University, the many other Colleges and Universities in the area plus Greenville is the North American Headquarters for some very large corporations. While maybe not a place to stay for vacationers it is certainly a very good place for those that use their RVs while on business travel. The only reason I give this campground a 7 is because they closed the lounge. The price is a good buy for what you get.

We stayed here based on the reviews on this web site. We were not disapointed at all. We were able to pick our super site amoung several (later in the week the place was filling up fast). We were close to the pool and were able to take advantage of their 24 hour pool. Everything said about this place is true: the over all facilities, the spacing, layout, landscaping, availability of a variety of sites plus easy access to all the central Florida has to offer. The only reason I don't give this facility a 10 was the game room was kind of lame (my kids words) and a number of the machine were not working.

We stopped here on the way home from Florida. Easy access, very nice, friendly helpful staff. Nice wide, shady, level site. When we stayed there it was not too crowded but I understand it can be quite busy when there are races at Darlington. The water melon social at 8pm was a big plus after a day of driving. While close to I95 highway, noise was not an issue. They are in the process of upgrading service to a number of sites but this did not cause any problems getting in or out.

We were looking for a place to spend the night on the way to Florida and found this campground through a web search. We pulled in after 6pm when the office closes. We were told just to pick a site and settle up in the morning. We selected a site overlooking Lake Marion. It was a pull through site, very wide, fantastic view. During the summer check their schedule because they have live entertainment in the pavalion on Satuday nights from 8pm to midnight. Free if you camp there. This is about 15 miles east of I95 but is worth the drive. Do not believe any routings given by Map Quest. They will take you down a one lane dirt road. Stay on Old Route Six until you see their sign and make a left on Rocks Pond Road. It is a little off the main drag but a very nice place with real friendly people.

This one of the best kept secrets on the DELMARVA Pennsula. There are sites directly on Pocomoke Sound (off of Chesapeake Bay), sand beach, kayak rental, nice rec. hall and pool. Great fishing pier. The owners live on the campground. This is a quiet place to relax, fish, go to the Saxis Wildlife Management area, Asseateague National Seashore or any of the 100+ things to do in the area. You will get an escort to your site and help backing in on backin sites. Remember this place is a secret - don't tell anyone.

Nice quiet campground with professional staff. Easy to get to off of I64 and close to all major events in Williamsburg. Very clean restrooms and showers although we did not use them. The campground is very clean with fresh gravel on the roads and parking areas of the sites. The site we were in was a pull thru and was 22 feet wide which was enough for use to open our awning. The back in sites have more width. Ground fires are not permitted but a few people had those inexpensive grills from Wall-Mart and made fires in the pans. Their big rig sites are toward the front and there were a number of large Class A units w/toads parked there. The turns on the roads further back can be a little tight. I had no problem with my 26ft trailer and I saw others getting in and out with 30ft 5th wheels and travel trailers. Again, nice QUIET campground. We will go there again.

We had to travel to this area to meet with friends for a few days and selected this campground at random. We were very pleased. The facility is well maintained, quiet and kept clean. The sfaff very friendly and helpful. If on vacation this is a good central location to hit a lot of good places from Lancaster to Philadelphia.

361 utility hookups, 100 sewer, and the rest are tent sites. We love this place. It is our favorate place to 'get away' for a weekend. Easy bicycle ride to Asseateague Island National Park. This place fills up quickly so call for reservations.

We were looking to to do something different and selected Ocean Lakes based on their web site and reviews. Also I was able to book a ocean front site, something we have always wanted to do. This obviously a VERY popular place. The facility was fine but this was not what any of us expected. There were five us, my wife and I, two adult children and a teenager. The young kids riding golf carts are down right dangerous. The nightly fireworks left debris in my campsite every night so I was afraid to put out my awning for fear of getting holes burned it. The pools were packed and unless you got there very early it was no fun. There is almost NO beach at high tide and there is like a Berlin Wall where you are not permitted to even set up a chair without fear of getting yelled at by the 'Beach Police'. Also the Ocean Lakes is significantly South of Town, much further than we anticipated. On the positive side - the staff is VERY helpful and friendly and I was able to get assistance with a trailer mechanical problem from mechanics ON SITE. BIG PLUS. We ended up using our Ocean Front site as mearly a base of operations to hit Charleston, Medieval Times and Dolly Pardon's place (MUST SEE). If you are into golf carts and nightly fireworks - this is your place - if you want to be closer to town try the North Side or the KOA right in town.
