Honey Bear Campground, Boone, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2011 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

The location of this campground was great. Most of the campsites are located in the woods with lots of tree cover. Our site had a small stream directly behind the site which the kids played in. The site was a bit small (10x30) but that was explained in the site description. It was a bit close for my liking to the neighboring camper. The sites were not perfectly level but close enough with some leveling boards. It was a stretch for my sewer hose to reach the connection so I had to use an extension. Not all sites are this way but ours was. The main reason for the somewhat low score was the power. With nothing hooked up we had around 114 volts. With my AC on it dropped quite a bit and once the water heater came on it dropped to around 103-105 volts. I had to turn off the water heater. I asked the office about it and they told me their service does not support electric water heaters. For a full service site this should not have been an issue. There was a small bridge next to my site that had lights on it during the night. These lights, while nice to look at, were plugged into my outlet which drew about 4 volts when they were on. The roads can be a bit tricky to navigate. Some are very steep inside the campground. Overall the campground was nice and I will probably return. The kids (plus me and my wife) loved the huge tree swing near the entrance. There is a small fishing pond on site as well. You would never know you were within 3 miles of downtown Boone.

Pirateland Family Campground, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2011 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our second stay at Pirateland. This is a really great park especially if you have children. They have an outdoor pool with lazy river plus a kiddy pool, put put, several playgrounds, indoor pool, paddle boats, canoes and probably others that I'm missing. We stayed during Easter and attended the sunrise service on the beach. It was wonderful. We stayed on an inland site which had tons of room. I've heard others say the sites are small but ours was very roomy. I could have easily parked two trailers with awnings extended side by side and still had room. The park was near capacity but never felt crowded. The beach area was a little crowded due to limited beach during high tide plus the weekend/holiday crowd, not to mention the great weather, but that is the case anywhere in Myrtle Beach. We will definitely be going back. This place is a permanent addition to our list. We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Pirateland Family Campground, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2010 - $59.00
Overall Rating:      

This was my first stay at Pirate Land. We waited too long to book so we could not get an ocean front site but instead took an inland site which was one row from the pool and lazy river. I was told before hand that these inland site were very close to one another. Let me tell you they are not any closer than the ocean front sites. I actually liked the inland spot better than the ocean spots due to the shade and proximity to the pool. We had to walk probably 200 yards to get to the ocean which was not bad at all. The one complaint I have is our site had a tree right in the middle of it. Once I was parked and level I realized I could not open my awning all the way. I asked the couple beside us if we could move my trailer to the very edge of the lot which put us closer to them. They said no problem. This allowed me to get the awning fully opened. Although the tree was in the way it did provide some great shade which actually made the 90 degree weather feel cool with the breeze. Since the tree forced us to the very edge of the lot it left enough room on the other side that you could have parked another trailer there. We parked our truck there which freed up room in front of the camper. Overall, I will certainly return to this campground. The check in and out process was very smoothly ran. The golf carts were everywhere but not a problem. We camped at Pirateland Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Stone Mountain State Park, Roaring Gap, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

This was the first state park we've stayed in but has to be one of the cleanest there is. This place was spotless. We stayed on the "B" loop which has electricity and water. Each site has a paved pad wide enough for the camper with a huge pea gravel lot next to it with a picnic table and grill. The lots are spaced so you're not right on top of the people beside you. There was a small stream right behind our site which our kids splashed in. The bath houses are very clean and looked brand new. The whole campground looked new even though it was not. We drove through the park and saw deer standing right beside the road within 10 foot of us. We climbed to the top of the stone which has awesome views. Overall, I can't wait to get back. We will camp here many more times. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Dan Nicholas Park, Salisbury, North Carolina

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our first official camping trip and I must say this was a great place to begin. This park has plenty to do for young kids, and older ones like myself. The campground sits on the backside of a lake and is very private. Each lot is spaced from the next so you don't feel crowded. The whole campground is located in the woods so there is total tree cover which was nice since it was hot. My only complaint is the site we had was not level so I had to run to the local hardware store to purchase some 2x8's to level the camper. The bath houses were clean. The front side of this park is open to the public and is where all the activities are located. We camped at Dan Nicholas Park in a Travel Trailer.
