Rate is $0 (Thousand Trails membership). OK for an overnight stay when traveling I-95, easy off/on but as others have mentioned, do not follow your GPS! Turn right before the Waffle House, then turn left at end of road (KOA is to the right). This is an old park that really needs a lot of maintenance. First off, the (mostly dirt) sites need gravel. Sites are narrow. At our site the sewer was all the way in the rear, so did not use. Camper next to us went out and bought an extension as their sewer was in the rear also. Facilities need paint. It rained overnight and as mentioned the CG has poor drainage. Our site was like a lake, had to walk through the water to disconnect the electric/water, then the exit around the perimeter was lots of more water filled potholes and a rockin' and rollin' all the way to the exit past the office/clubhouse. No activities and no BBQ the Friday we stayed. Glad we didn't have to pay to stay. We might stay again for ONE night, if traveling on I-95 AND the weather has been dry with no rain forecast.

Rate is TT membership. Convenient to I-64. Campground hasn't changed in years, except getting more run down. Sites need gravel, they are pretty much just dirt, no grass between sites. Roads are narrow, bumpy and challenging to navigate with tow car. Lots of trees, so forget satellite. Cable is available for $3.25/day. Facilities just look dated and worn. Staff friendly and helpful, ample touristy brochures available for your stay in Williamsburg. Both indoor and outdoor pools, indoor spa, laundry and game room. Lots of seasonals both in campsites and cabins.

Rate is with AARP discount, 50 amp pull thru (both are extra). OK for overnight, but not worth the price. Of all the sites available, they put us in #171, between two trees that both brushed against our motorhome. There were quite a few sites without obstructions, so why not either put customers in those, or how about trimming the trees???? I'd say less than 20 sites occupied of 100. Convenient to I-95, but that's the only thing going for it. Will not return.

Quiet campground, large wooded campsites with water and 50/30 amp electric. Accommodates 40' Class A motorhomes at RV sites. Tent sites are large also, but no hookups. Hosts very informative about area, and clean the restrooms frequently, no less than once per day...they were always spotless, and newly remodeled, very nice! Note that the entry gate is locked at 10 PM so if you arrive later you have to park outside the CG and walk in, a bit of a disadvantage, however you can leave any time. The gate reopens at 9 AM. Wish they would add a keypad system for registered campers to allow 24 hr access. Dump station is different than any other I've seen, with a sideways entry, and no threads to contain dumped "matter", so some leakage occurs, which can easily be rinsed down, but it would be better I think to have a vertical dump and no leakage at all. We will definitely return. Would rate it a 10 if they had sewer at sites. This is a wonderful peaceful campground with beautiful surroundings.

Location is great. Rate is with TT extended stay discount (>7days)..regular rate is $48 + $3 resort fee = $51/day plus tax. We had a view of the water from our campsite, though it was not waterfront. Our site was W/E only, had to pay $25 for pumpout, which I thought was excessive, especially since they didn't fully empty the tanks, but it got us through 8 days and we did fully empty the tanks at the dump station as we left. We spent most of our time at Acadia NP, so did not really use the "resort" amenities, which from what I could see was just a very small pool for the size of the CG, and entertainment on two week nights we were there. IMO the entertainment was way too loud, we were tired from our sightseeing and didn't appreciate such loud music on a weeknight. There was an issue with the power post late at night on our last night there, and we were in the dark, like being at Walmart. Our surge protector code said that we were not getting a full 50 amp and shut down, giving the code "move to a different power source". We reported it the next morning and they were appreciative and said they would have maintenance check it out. All in all, I would stay again, but I would ask for a site far away from the loud music, and/or book when there was NOT going to be entertainment.

The only good thing about this campground is the full hookups. Only a handful of sites that will accommodate a 40 ft class A, and those are out in the open (no shade) with extremely small campsites; you are elbow to elbow with your neighbor. Nowhere to park your car but in alongside the rig, so what little site is available is taken by your auto/truck. I'd say close to 50% seasonal. Roads are mostly dirt with very little gravel, when it rains you can imagine the mud. The cable is very limited and the picture poor quality. It is convenient to I-84, and there is a Pilot Diesel and Mobil with diesel right off the Exit 1 in MA, and the prices are low compared to CT.

Member rate is -0-. Very nice campground. Big rig access is limited, recommend loop B. Two really big hills before you get to the campsites in loop B. No 50 amp. Not all campsites have sewer. Campground to close end of October for the winter, so not much going on for activities, and CG is nowhere near full. Staff going about their business, but not overly friendly. This CG could be a real jewel, but it needs a major overhaul. So many sites are not even big enough for a pop-up! Many sites are on little "hills" with grassy ditches between you and neighbor. The best sites are taken by seasonals, of course. Most roads are paved, looks like they attempted to fix some of the bad potholes from last year. Bathrooms are very rustic: shower curtains for a door in the toilet area. Over air TV was poor, only received one station ABC. Branches right over RV, so a site in the open probably better reception. Verizon cell 3G, only 1bar. Will return, and hope that they add 50 amp FHU at all sites soon.

Rate is 50% national pass rate. No electric, water or sewer. No soap or towels in bathrooms. No showers. Sites are very tight for a motorhome, which are only allowed in loop "T". They have a new reservation system, and the host don't know what sites have been reserved, so you can't park in any site that is "reservable" without risk of being asked to leave if someone shows up for that site. This limits the options for where you can park, and most of the "reservable" sites were empty. Camp rules prohibit generator use from 9PM to 8AM. Bathrooms accessible. Not worth the money, would rather stay at Wal-Mart, at least we can run generator there, watch TV till late and make coffee at 6AM.

Rate is -0- as this is a member campground. Beautiful lake and scenery, a very peaceful getaway. We were here as the season was winding down, so there were just a few other campers there. Pool closed for the season. They can improve on handicap access at this park--especially in the bathrooms. Very friendly competent staff. Roads are partly paved but mostly gravel, with deep ruts in some CG areas. Lots of the sites were not level, most uphill. Ours had a slight slope with the sewer in the back of the spot, and it doesn't flow uphill. Will definitely visit again, as it is a beautiful park.

Rate is Good Sam discount. Location is excellent. Most sites are short and narrow. When a motorhome would arrive on our road, others on the road would have to move their toad car or pickup in order for the new arrival to get in their campsite, as most toads were parked crosswise at the entry of the campsite-this because they put 40ft motorhomes in a site that is 40ft long. So you have to pull in as far as possible with the rear hanging way past the gravel in the trees, and park the toad or pickup sideways in front. There were other sites that were longer or wider, but most sites were like ours: SMALL. I noticed in another area they had pull throughs that shared the power/water hookups on the driver side, and on the passenger (campsite) side, shared that with another camper also, so they were very close; two picnic tables in a row. That might be nice if traveling with RV friends, but otherwise not so good. Cable TV was snowy as another review mentioned. Didn't use the pool/spa/or restaurant. CG is the best location if you are visiting the Capitol. I've stayed at lots of CGs for less, with much nicer campsites. So bottom line is, if you're visiting Washington, DC, this is a good place to park, and that's all.

Rate reflects 1/2 discount. We had 50amp site, no water or sewer. Did not see any pull through sites. Grass maybe 10" high, guessing it hadn't been cut in a month. Gravel sites, covered with old grass trimmings, made it almost impossible to keep the debris out of the RV. Though there is security during the day there is zero security at night. Significant police presence on the weekend makes me wonder what problems they have had in the past. Lots of trash bins throughout the park. Very heavy tree cover, so don't count on getting satellite. The only sites we saw that might get satellite did not have electric. OK CG for what it is, but we've been to some very nice COE parks, and this one just didn't measure up.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Dogs running loose every day at this park. Complained to the office and we were given lip service. The manager was supposed to follow up and come see us the next day but never did. Dogs continued to run loose. We have a dog and pet friendly parks are a plus, so we were looking forward to the pet wash, but the loose dogs spoiled our stay of 3 days. Also there were pit bulls present. The sites are narrow and unlevel as mentioned. Also the picnic table was peeling badly and needed resealing, a definite minus. Between the loose dogs, narrow site and unsightly rough picnic table we did not spend any time outdoors with our dog. Also, their "Pet walk" is a drainage ditch. Indoor pool was nice. Spa not hot, more like a hot bath, and had chewing gum stuck in the rocks, what adult would do that? The water hookups were a challenge to get working. Didn't see any management presence during our short stay. Park less than half full, and of that, there were maybe 20 rally goers; they had a nice shelter for the rally to use, a plus for that. Didn't use laundry as we have facilities onboard our motorhome, but did notice they were expensive. We were able to get WiFi the first day, but it was very weak. The last two days their WiFi was not working at all. Would not stay here again, as it is not worth the price and there is a nice CG closeby in Berlin that we like, for a lot less.

Stayed here as ROD members. Well kept manicured grounds. Lots of tall pine trees provide shade, that was nice but our roof satellite could not get direct tv from our site. Bathrooms need updating. Roads are gravel, so there is lots of dust. We used the pool & spa once; the pool was clear/clean but not heated and the spa jets don't work well so it was like taking a bath. Kind of a mixed bag there. Didn't use the rec building so don't know about activities, games, etc. We left a day early, and we were not "checked out" in the system until the day of our original reservation; I don't know what to make of that, maybe they just didn't pick up the check out slips that day. ROD sends you an email when you check out, and if they didn't I would not even know about the mix up. Several Canadian Geese "families" with little ones, they were very cute to watch around the pond. Lots of places to walk. The "dog walk" fenced area is a joke, though, it is very small, maybe 8-10 ft square, and to my dog that is a kennel, not a dog walk. Perhaps it is useful for toy breeds. There were many flowers and shrubs, and the landscaping was very nice. The campsites were pretty large, all gravel (no grass between sites). We visited New Orleans from here, maybe an hour drive across the toll bridge. We would camp here again if visiting the area, as it is a convenient place to park with thru.

Stayed here while traveling Natchez Trace, off mile marker 8.1. Paved roads & sites. We had pull thru #24, a nice level thru site. Most sites also looked level, but were back in. Good location from which to visit Natchez historical sites and downtown. We did not have a reservation, so had to drive all the way to the "office" to register, and then back to the CG to our site. Staff at the office didn't have any info about Natchez, and only a photocopy of the campsite map, so if visiting here, you need to get your info elsewhere. There were several very nice cabins on the other side of the lake from the CG, looked like the views from them would be wonderful. The CG was very quiet and peaceful. Would definitely camp here again.

Date of Stay:

Right off the Natchez Trace at mile marker 304.5. Rate reflects 50% senior discount. Concrete site pads as mentioned in an earlier review are very high, and stepping out of your camper, you have quite a step down at most sites, especially the waterfront sites. We stayed in site 38 (not waterfront) and selected this site because it was level without a step down. The water level of the lake is fine, not low as previously reported. There is one ADA restroom (of 3 in the CG) this is of course the newest one. They had a Sunday church service at 8:30AM, very nice. There is a swimming pool, separate use fee, we did not use. Many hiking trails. Great diner type restaurant nearby in Belmont, the Belmont Cafe...excellent down home cooking, don't miss the peach cobbler, it is excellent! The cg was pretty crowded on the weekend, but very few campers during the week. I would have given a higher rating, but the dump station was on the side of a hill with 7 or 8 inch ruts from water erosion in the road to get to it; we didn't think it was worth the potential damage to our MH to try to get to it, so we did not use it, and this would limit any stay at this cg. We would visit again, but only for a short visit.
