This is a former KOA facility. If you are in a smaller MH or trailer, you'll probably get a nice site, possibly with views. But if you are in a longer motorhome requiring 50 amp service, be aware. Many of the sites into which they try to squeeze larger rigs are unbelievably cramped. I have photos of rigs so closely spaced that their awnings are overlapping, their slideouts are within 2 feet of each other and slideouts on the other side are only inches from a utility building. I was instructed to put my coach so close to another unit that its owner complained that he couldn't get his bicycles off of a rear-mounted rack. Further, the wifi which another reviewer touted so highly barely worked during our stay (during mid-July when the park was crowded). There are much nicer parks nearby. I personally wouldn't return to this one.

A large park which is quite hilly causing many (if not most) of the sites to be unlevel - although not terribly so. The water pressure at our site was low at 26 p.s.i. WiFi is strong. The park has both open sites and those which are heavily wooded. We had one of the latter so it we weren't that aware of our neighbors. Like most Canadian RV parks, there are many families although none we close enough for noisy kids to be a bother. Apart from a swimming pool and a playground, this park doesn't have many amenities. Nonetheless it's good for a few nights while visiting Halifax and it is also very nicely situated for a side trip to Peggy's Cove. It's also fairly near to a variety of gas stations (diesel included) and other retail stores. Sites have gravel surfaces, picnic tables and a fire-pit constructed from old truck wheels.

The site you are assigned may determine your opinion of this park. Our overall review is negative because our 34 ft., 50 amp. coach was "sentenced" to a site near the entrance of the park which has views of busy streets with echoes of traffic noise. There are 7 local TV stations available, but none of them are in English (in contrast to Quebec and Montreal where we received at least 1 station in each location in our native tongue). The asphalt section of each site is extremely narrow leaving only a few inches beyond each wheel. Beware that water pressure is extremely high (over 80 psi). The branch of a tree at the front end of our site was so low that it scratched our coach. When we asked if it could be cut back, we were told that this is not allowed - in fact the no-tree-pruning rule was written on the instructions that we were handed when we checked in. Our site wasn't level, but it was decidedly better than the first one we were assigned where tree roots had destroyed the asphalt surface looking like large moles had chewed their way across the site. The location of this park is convenient and it is satisfactory for a short stay.

The park is pretty much as already reviewed: woodsy, walking paths, sites not particularly level, family-oriented, close to highway. Pool was kept clean. Not so for sites (litter in the fire pit). Water pressure is low at 26 psi. (I checked three different sites). Management didn't seem to be particularly aware nor concerned about this. Overall, Paradise Lake is a good place to stay for a few days if you are transiting through Danville, Va.

This is a small, lakeside campground with convenient pull-through sites. The facilities include full hookups with 30/50 amps, tv cable and a wifi system that actually works. The owner/managers are super friendly and helpful. This is one of those "I definitely would stay here again" kind of places. Our site faced the lake where we sat outside on their swing chairs and enjoyed a gentle breeze. There's also a fenced in dog park for those of us who travel with our fur babies.

Note that the P.A. rate that I paid was for off-season. There are a lot of positives for this park. 1. It's location. You can walk to local restaurants and to Anna Maria Island. 2. It's management. The new manager is very friendly and helpful. 3. It's sites. They are large, wide, paved and level (the first two rows of sites nearest to the highway are an exception - being gravel and close together). 4. It's internal access roads. Also wide and paved. Two RV can easily pass one another on each roadway. There are a few negatives. The first is the restrooms. Yes, they're clean and modern, but are only "token". For example, the mens' restroom had only one toilet and two showers. They are also a long walk from the sites located at the back of the park. The second negative is the water. While each site has two spigots and good water pressure, there is an undeniable smell of Sulphur. It is so strong that you can smell it whenever water is running through a faucet or even on your body after taking a shower. I wanted to ask the manager about the cause of this, but she was not available on the two or three times that I tried to see and/or phone her.

This is a former KOA park that hasn't kept up with the times. We stayed there during the Calgary Stampede, so the park was very crowded. It's well-located, but lacking in most other respects. We were assigned a back-in site which had shared utilities with a neighboring RV. The temperatures were very hot, so I'd asked for a 30 amp site (50 amp isn't available). It turns out that there is only one 30 amp circuit between two sites, so access to the 30 amp is 'first come first served'. Our neighbor had been there for three days when we arrived so that we were relegated to 20 amps, not really enough to run Winnebago's basement a/c. Although the park claims WiFi, it is painfully slow at the site location. In order to get an acceptable signal, one must go to the office. Fortunately we were only there for a few days, but next time I'll look for another park.

This park is new, having opened in Oct. 2014. Good Sam rates it as a 10/10/10, and this is well deserved. The park has easy access to I-95. It offers complimentary coffee, juice and waffles. And it has pickle ball courts and a nice mini-golf "course". There are 3-dog parks on the grounds. There's also a childrens playground. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Hook-ups are modern and include TV cable. We would definitely stay here again.

Despite other reviewers perceptions, we didn't appreciate the crowded sites (too close together), the noisy atmosphere (yelling kids running around between the RVs) and the narrow sewer openings which, in our case, blocked up when trying to dump the black water tank. There appeared to be no place for air to escape, causing the hose to back up with sewage. Yes, the location is great, but you're paying top dollar for gravel-dirt sites that aren't at all level and minimally spaced. Also, don't arrive earlier than the appointed check-in time because they won't let you near the sites even though yours might be empty. I wouldn't stay here again.

Yes, this is a pretty, quiet little park, but accessing it can require driving through some trash-littered residential areas. The staff is attentive, especially the campground host. Unfortunately, the previous reviewers stayed at the part in November when the weather was cooler. In June, the stench from a nearby sewage treatment plant can be overpowering and the hiking paths are overrun with fleas, ticks and chiggers. It's safest to stay only in mowed areas. If we were to stay here again, it would be at a cooler time of year. On the other hand, the park provides reasonable and affordable access to Memphis without the touristy atmosphere associated with Graceland.

This is a very nice park, contrary to the previous reviewer's comments. Its location is excellent being just off the Interstate and across the road from several fuel stations. It's big-rig friendly, surprisingly quiet, managed by an attentive staff, and the packed gravel sites are firm enough to support your levelers. Good water pressure. The Wi-Fi signal was strong and worked without any issues. The TV cable was an added plus. We paid the Passport America rate, which included 50 amp service. We would definitely stay here again.

As other reviewers stated, this CG is neat and clean. We paid the $16 PA rate (including $1 extra for sewer) plus $1.75 tax. However we were assigned site no. 31 which is alongside Hwy 136, also aptly named "Thunder Street". We found the traffic noise to be objectionable. When we mentioned this to the manager on the following morning, her reaction was simply, "We're not suited for everyone". Our site was unpaved and had no gravel. It rained during the night and all of our hoses, cables and wheels were covered with mud. Also, there is absolutely no TV signal to be received by a conventional RV antenna.

We stayed here off season so none of the 'activities' were available. The staff, while friendly, consisted of only a few people (the rest were working at the corporate HQ in Michigan). I had to phone four times over a three and one-half hour period in order to make a reservation. Evidently their "customer service" person (based in Michigan) did not believe in returning phone messages. Yes, the restrooms are clean and there is a pool as well as full-service sites, but the overall facility appears lacklustre and old-fashioned. RVs sit on either grass or dirt at the sites. And the hook-ups are spread around instead of being conveniently clustered. Our water source was to the left of the patio pad, while the sewer was behind the coach and the electricity (50 amp only) was immediately to its right. Compared to other campgrounds that we frequent, this place isn't worth the $36 per night that was charged (which actually turned out to be $40 when taxes were added). We would be unlikely to stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights while checking out adult living communities in the area. The facility is well located alongside of Hwy. 441 (and given the setback from the road, traffic noise was no problem). We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers were clean, and management has just opened a new swimming pool. Streets are paved, and their spacious sites--many of which are pull-throughs--come complete with cable TV and Wi-Fi. There is also nice open areas to walk a dog. Overall, this is a very nice RV park. We would definitely stay here again.

In an area populated with old, worn-out RV parks, this newly revitalized facility is a real find. It is in a secluded setting, but very near to shopping, restaurants, national and state parks and other attractions. The park itself has been greatly improved with dog parks, modern restrooms, club lounges, an exercise facility, sparkling clean swimming pools, hot tubs, a general store, restaurant and more. It is gated, private and secure. The staff is very friendly and receptive to new ideas. Rental units are predominantly in the front section of the park. Sites in one of the three sections have been mostly sold out to private owners. (All of the remaining sites are ultimately for sale). Some shady sites are available, but generally the park needs more time for trees and foliage to be planted and to grow. We spent four nights here and used our Passport America membership.
