This park is one of the most relaxing and quiet RV parks we have visited. We parked on a creekside site on Jonathan Creek. With the windows open and nothing but the sound of the water flowing in the creek, the sleeping was great. Fire rings are located on the creek bank for those that want a campfire. We sat during the day next to the creek for meals and reading/relaxing. Non-creekside sites are available for $5 less. The sites are very small so not sure how big rig friendly they are. Our rig is 33 feet plus toad, and we had to be careful in the interior roads. Also be aware that there is a drainage problem on some of the sites, so after heavy rain there may be some standing water for a bit. It looks like trees and light poles were left or placed with no regard for RV manuvering. Our assigned site was fine, but next time I will check out the other open sites and request a change if the assigned site does not look suitable. There are several pull through sites but not right on the creekside. The staff was brief and to the point, and we did not see any of them after registering. This park is in the middle of Maggie Valley so it is near all of the shows, close to Lake Junaluska, and a few miles up to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Asheville is only about a 30 minute drive. We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Maggie Valley area.

Cane Creek is a county park on a small lake in Union County NC, very near the SC border. It is located off of highway NC 200 south of Monroe NC. It is a small family oriented park with a small swimming beach that is only open Saturdays and Sundays during summer. The spaces are fairly tight, so not sure a big rig would fit. Waterfront spaces (about 10-12) are paved and have full hook ups. Others are gravel with water and electricity only. There are lots of trees and a small arcade that closes at about 9PM. There are several fishing and boat docks within walking distance. There is a large lakefront area with vollyball nets, basketball hoop and plenty of room to fish from the shore. A boat ramp is also avilable. The day use area across the lake is also available for campers to use with peddle boats and other activities. There are plenty of walking trails all around the lake. There are also primitive camping areas, cabins, and an equestrian camping and riding area. All in all a neat little place not far from Charlotte and not far from the JAARS Center, Alphabet Museum and the Mexico Museum.

This is a great little campground. It is very convenient to Savannah historic district, about a 25 minute drive, and makes a great base camp for exploring Savannah. The trailer park is separated from the campground by a fence. The staff was helpful and friendly. We had a quiet spot that backed up to the small lake. It proved to be a very quiet retreat after a day in the city. We eventually found out that there is a Wal-Mart and several restaurants nearby, easily accessed by going out the back way to reach Highway 21 near the town of Rincon. We look forward to camping here again on our next trip to Savannah.
