We enjoyed our stay. The sites were nice enough, plenty of space between sites, lots of trees. The bathhouse sits in the center, there are several access paths but they weren't easy to find in the dark. The sites are electric only, our hook up was fine, however our friends site had problems. We would stay here again. We camped in a 5 th wheel.

This was a very nice campground. The pull thru sites are on the outside of the loops many of them require that you walk downhill to the campsite. They can be tight if you have multiple slide outs. They all faced the woods, very private. The back in's were in the middle and were very nice. Lot's of space between sites. Very clean. For $7. per day per campsite you can use the indoor pool, spa, etc. We camped in a 34' fifth wheel.

This could be a beautiful park. The majority of sites are terraced, very narrow not well planned out, no space. Our pull thru site was really bad. The left side had a four foot retaining wall that was settling leaving a one foot rut along the wall. So we had to park tight to the right side. Our steps hit the side of the hill which we had to climb up to get to a small deck. We could barely walk around our RV. Great for a one night stay but if you plan to stay longer you should confirm what your site will be like.

This park is located at Great Smoky Mountain Pigeon Forge entrance. The location was very convenient, at the far end of the commercial area in Pigeon Forge. The camp sites are close together but seemed to work well once we got in our spot and the layout made it very social which we liked. The laundry room was great, the bathrooms were extremely nice. Our son camped in one of the basic cabins, just a bed, mini fridge and microwave, nice enough. We really enjoyed our stay at this park, the pool area was nice, park was clean, excellent power. We camped here in a fifth wheel.

We had the total opposite experience at this CG then other reviewers. First it is very well maintained, beautiful location. Bath house wasn't great and the lack of cleanliness was probably due to the usage vs. them not taking care of it. Large number of seasonal campers with well kept wooded sites on a sea of gravel. The seasonal campers were very nice. My experience with the owners started with me having a dog. While checking in the man who owns the place walks in and firmly asks me if my dog barks. I explained she is a puppy, we have not had an issue with barking as of yet. He chirps over to his wife, make sure you have her phone number. Then tells me that a group of tent campers will be next to my site and if she barks he will be calling me and that we will have to leave. So yes the eight tent campers and two kegs of beer did show up next to us and apparently our dog was fine with their party, or they couldn't hear her barking over their own good time. Our site had numerous tall walnut trees dropping walnuts on the top of our camper. We had to take apart our metal dog fencing, hoist it on top of the roof to prevent the dozens of walnuts from cracking our sky light and fan housings. We were kept awake from the walnuts dropping on our roof all night. The 30 amp hook up was horrible, I informed the owner that the power was dropping to 109 when ever we turn on the AC. He whipped out his gauge (which he just happened to have right with him), "I'm going to check, I'm at 119, your campers defective...", I informed him that everything that draws a lot of power is off, so you will read 119 and that the problem only happens when I try to use the power. At one point on day two I watched our gauge jump back and forth repeatedly from 107 to 121, with no AC, fridge, hot water on. We had zero problems at the other three CG's we camped at this month, so pretty sure our camper isn't defective. Could not leave fast enough.

We camp here every year and always look forward to our stay. This year the person checking us in was not very pleasant, I believe she was one of the camp hosts. I don't know who takes care of the sites but they are mostly sand, with ruts, dead grass and weeds. I guess they are hard to mow. Even the new north inlet sites were weed filled. The sand spurs have gotten into the grass so bad that our puppy would get covered in them, it was horrible and this was the first time that we had to deal with them. They moved the trash dumpsters from a central location to the far corner near the dump station. Now over half the campground drives to the trash instead of being able to walk to a central location. Any of the sites on the first and second row had to deal with cars dropping off trash day and night. Would not recommend that area to anyone with small children. They have made a lot of improvements to the park and it would be nice if they worked on the campsites. The power service was excellent.

This is a great option for anyone wanting a peaceful vacation near Berlin/Ocean City, MD. It is a great value for the money during the peak summer months. About 20 mins. to the beaches (depending on traffic) 10 mins to Berlin. The park itself is kept very clean. The sites are very spacious with a nice fire ring. They had several cabins overlooking the lake. They had kayaks, canoes, a pool that is on the lake, fishing, really very nice. It is very quite and peaceful at night, no loud partying, people cutting across or setting up a corn hole tournament on your camp site (yes that has happened to us). The seasonal camp sites are not junky and the people we met were all very nice. We had good power, our water was fine-no smell, which is hit or miss when you are on the eastern shore of MD, good pressure. My only gripe is that the bathroom/shower was not very nice. We camped in a 5th wheel, and we would camp here again.

I love this park. You can not beat the location or the price. Yes it is like a big sandy parking lot, no trees at all. So if you want to sit at your campsite and not venture out, this might not be the place for you. If you want to sit on the beach, then you can walk there. Head to Bethany or Rehoboth, both a short drive, walk along the inlet-pretty wild watching the water rage. Go across to the north side of the inlet, Hammerheads II has live music/happy hour, or catch the fishing boat that runs twice a day. The park offers kayak trips also. I look forward to coming here every year. My only complaint would be that they should put a little effort into the existing campsites, fill in the low spots, fix the roads, etc.

It was a nice campground in a natural setting. Nothing fancy, clean and well kept. A good number of snowbirds/seasonal campers. Electric was reliable. We would stay here again.

This is a beautiful campground. Our site had full hookups and was very large. Loved riding our bikes on the trails. About 15-20 minutes to Savannah. It had rained and we did notice several sites that were a wet and muddy mess. We didn't like the drive around and find a site approach. We didn't have a problem but I could see were it might be frustrating. 50 amp power was good.

This park totally fits the vibe that is Matlacha. Very eclectic. Walk to shops, bars and restaurants. There is a clubhouse with a kitchen, TV, etc. that appears to be in the finish stages. A community fire pit , tiki bar, lounge chairs, boat dock... We met several nice couples and had a great time. The spots are tight but everyone, including some really big rigs fit in. The Yacht Club in Coral Gables, about 20 minutes away provides a beach and a pool. We would return.

We loved our stay here, love the location, close to Key West. Site 25 was large and has a nice waterfront area with beautiful sunsets. The water connection is located front left side (hose crossed site). The electric is located front right, we needed an extension cord. 50 amp power was good. The bath house was extremely clean and nice. We put Plexiglas panels in our screen door to keep the no-seeums out. Bug spray is a must. It's hard to get reservations but don't give up, it was worth the being denied every morning at 7:59:59 for a month plus to spend a week in paradise!

This park is very close to the entrance of the Everglades. My reservation which I confirmed twice was lost on arrival. They did find it and we headed to site 184. The place seemed nice, well cared for park models, nice pool facility. Then we made a right and yikes! We were parked between two nasty trailers, falling apart, bags of garbage sat on their porch. I was nervous and scared. Loud Hispanic music blared late into the night on two nights, fireworks of some sort late one night frightened the heck out of us. Then we went to the pool, clean, nice laundry, lovely pool, nice people, we felt safe. Lots of planned activities, lots of snowbirds enjoying life. The park is not worth $60. a night and we would not return. If you do stay try to stay on the left side of the park.

The worse thing about the park was the entry road. It was brutal, potholes as big as our truck that never stopped. The rain made it nerve-racking since you couldn't tell how deep they were. The bath house while clean was old, the shower wasn't great, mold growing on painted block and the drain was a real ankle twister. However the natural beauty, foliage, wild turkeys, pigs, deer made up for it. The sites were large. This was a great base to explore St. Augustine and surrounding area. The 30 amp power was all right. We would return, felt it was an excellent value.

This was a nice park with good access to the Lancaster area. It is right on the turnpike, however the road noise was not that bad at all. They have great security. Reservations and check-in were easy. Our site had excellent power, cable was fuzzy, not very level. The site backed to trees and we had enough space to enjoy our fire. We would stay here again.
