Great improvements to this KOA since I visited in 2002. Young family now owns campground and they were very accommodating. Had activities for the kids, including a movie night outside. They have added LOTS of Kabins, which were all sold out this particular weekend. Even with the campground at full capacity, the campground was quiet at night. All throughout the day, staff is riding around on golf carts...eager to assist you. Very happy with the atmosphere. Not too far from the beach, where we hauled our bicycles and rode. LOVE the dog park being divided into three sections. Was easy to access using I-140 versus the traffic of Market Street. Only concern with the campsite was the sewer connection being a bit far from the electric/water, which was an issue for our TT. They allowed us to find a better site. Owners are doing a great job! We'll be back.

We visited here for the weekend. We did have a nicely shaded site with a concrete pad. The decking around the marina, and out to the lake for swimming, needs to be replaced. They have about 12 benches on the decking, none of which you could "safely" sit on. The benches also needed replacing. We were told the campground has existed since 1984, and it looked it. However, five years ago they built a wonderful Family Fun Center with 10 full-size bowling lanes. That was the best feature! They have indoor: shuffleboard, racquetball, pool, putt-putt and dawning beds. If you have a Coast2Coast membership, they only have like 8 sites that are in full sun. We were also told that C2C does not have access to the entire grounds. Golf carts are abundantly used on the paved paths.

Love this private campground! We visited for 10 days. They have a large dog run that is very nice and kept clean. This entire campground is very clean, including the individual bathrooms in the bath house. (Love the privacy.) They have social activities such as Bingo and other fun things on the weekend, including a Worship Service on Sunday mornings. They have 2 shuffleboard courts, 4 horseshoe pits, beach volleyball, putt-putt, half basketball court, a pool and a jacuzzi. The game room has pool tables, foosball and air hockey which cost 75 cents. They also have paddleboats and canoes on the bass lake. You check out all equipment at the General Store. The staff is very nice! The Lodge offers satellite TV and an area for reading books and completing puzzles. Wi-Fi is available in the lodge, also. Purchased a membership and am excited about spending more time here. It is in the middle of the country, so you may want to stock up your food pantry! Only a few sites have sewer hook-up, but the Honey Wagon comes around 3 times a week. You pay $7 to the General Store the night before you need your tanks emptied. Most sites are shaded with TALL pines. A very comfortable and pleasant setting.

This park is basically a place to park your RV and hook-up to electric/water/sewer. Nothing else is provided in the way of bathrooms, playground, etc. It is in walking distance to the beach, food, and shopping. I stayed here during the week of Thanksgiving. It is a basic park without any amenities. (This was fine for my visit during the winter time).

We rented a stream site but could not see the stream! It did have privacy shrubbery around the individual site. Had a couple of others attempt to camp near to us, but they were not happy with the unlevel campsites around us. Ours wasn't too bad. The wireless internet was not dependable: had to be outside your RV and unfortunately, it rained the first 24 hours we were here. Once the sun came out, we took our dogs out and ventured around the grounds. The public wash room was clean, but we did not use it. Had a large area for the kids/pets to play. The road coming into the campground is narrow with hairpin turns. Fortunately, the road is not very heavily traveled. This campground is not far from town. We recommend the town of Blowing Rock and Sledgehammer Charlie's: great food!
