This is a very well-run campground with convenient access to just about any RV services one could ask for (Lazy Days, General RV, Camping World and others). The internal roads are paved but driving on them in a large RV can be a challenge as many cars are parked along and sometimes in the roadways due to the tight sites. There is a shuttle service throughout the campground.

We've stayed here before and enjoy this campground. Very easy access to I-95. Full-services, paved interior roads, and concrete pads at every site. The staff is great. Its only drawback is that it sits directly under the approach paths for aircraft landing at Jacksonville International Airport; although, flights are almost non-existent between 11:00 PM and 6:30 AM. We will definitely stay here again.

The campground has been improved a bit since our last stay, with cable available at every site. While our site was relatively dry, others were a bit muddy after the preceding day's rain. The tall pines throughout the campground give it an extremely nice feel.

This campground was again our first stop on our trek south. The staff remains very friendly. While just off I-95, it is surprisingly quiet. The complementary waffle breakfast was a treat! We will definitely stay here again.

This is a typical state park, clean, with a friendly cadre of park rangers. Well-patrolled and with reasonably wide and treed sites (meaning satellite coverage was nonexistent). However, we were promised a 50 amp site but ended up with only 30 amps. There is no water at the sites, although there are water spigots scattered around the campground where you can fill your tank. Sewer is in the form of dump stations. Obviously, no cable, although we could pull in Harrisburg TV stations with our aerial. Our picnic table appeared to be as old as Methuselah. After settling in to our site, we were sitting around enjoying a glass of wine when one of the rangers advised that there was no alcohol allowed, and suggested we retire to the inside of our coach. The problem was solved the next day by using coffee cups in stead of wine glasses! If trying to find the park, our GPS was frustrated trying to find the park. With reservations the entrance is on Route 74, 0.8 mi. east of the intersection of Routes 177 and 74. Without reservations, 2.2 miles north of that intersection on Route 177. Despite the park's inconveniences, we would not hesitate to return in the future.

This was a totally unique campground experience. The full-service sites are wide and situated around a large field ringed by trees. The half-mile entrance road is a bit narrow but can still accommodate large motorhomes, and the owners assured us two RVs have never tried to pass in opposing directions. While the farm also hosts a number of events, there was a wedding and reception on the day we arrived, it was remarkably quiet, the loudest noise coming from a cacophony of crows in an adjoining field. At night, there is a near absence of light, making watching an unobstructed sky special. There is no cable but the open area provides excellent satellite reception. While we did have cell service, our 4G hotspot did not receive a signal, primarily as it is inside the nearby Green Bank Radio Telescope "Radio Quiet Zone"; however, the campground's Wi-Fi is strong near the bathhouse. Finally, the owners are a wonderful couple who maintain a clean and inviting campground. We would definitely return!

This is a clean, quiet and downright delightful campground nestled between cliffs on both sides of the Kanawha River. When approaching from the east, it is 14 miles on a narrow, winding road from the intersection of US-19 and US-60. The drive is much easier when coming from the west. It is convenient for visiting the Charleston area and less than 20 miles from the New River Gorge. Our full-service site (39) was a parallel to the river and very pretty! The owner is extremely friendly and is clearly committed to the ongoing upgrading of his facility. My one recommendation would be to improve the ambiance of the campground's entrance and office. We would definitely return if traveling to the Charleston WV area!

While this is a pretty park with grass sites, paved roads and conveniently located just 6 miles from I-75, the staff we encountered needs improvement. On checking-in, the young gal at the gate was too engrossed in a personal phone call to provide us with all of the materials we were supposed to receive. Another stopped by our site and to give us a message and, instead of knocking on our door, pounded on it. Also, their "people skills" need a vast improvement! Further, we had reserved a site with sewer facilities but there was none on site 161. Traveling through the campground can be an adventure as too many people, with and without campers in tow, drive way too fast while kids on bikes and skateboards (not one was wearing a helmet) and others on foot seem oblivious to vehicle traffic. Further, it is annoying to have kids wandering and biking through our site. All of these issues are resolvable with better management oversight. If staying in sites 1-9 or 160 or 161, a generator for the dump station can be noisy at night.

Nice campground with spacious sites. However, as RVers are allowed to put out mats and rugs, the grass has in many places been replaced with gravel and dirt which can turn to mud when it rains. Staff very friendly and accommodating, particularly when we wanted to extend our stay without having to change sites. Internal roads are paved. Generally quiet at nights. Convenient to local (Holland, Saugatuck/Douglas and Grand Rapids) points of interest. We would definitely stay here again.

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we've stayed in over the past five years (of some 250 we've visited)! It is clean, the sites are paved and wide with true lawns in between. The staff was wonderful. Convenient to the sand dunes, local lakes, and Pentwater. We plan to stay here in the future!

Date of Stay:

Lovely campground with concrete site pads. Staff extremely friendly. Convenient to Petoskey, Tunnel of Trees, and other local sites we were visiting. We would definitely return here.

Date of Stay:

Small campground with lots of eclectic (recycled) art between each site. Staff very helpful. While the campground is a bit "tired", our stay was pleasant.

Date of Stay:

This is our second visit to one of the nicest campgrounds we've stayed in anywhere. Every site has a covered patio deck with a picnic table and bench, and excellent views of the Portage Canal. The campground is quiet, peaceful and we wish our schedule allowed us to stay longer. We would DEFINITELY stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We were parked on the "lawn" out front of the campground, which did have electric, water, and sewer available. Cable, while advertised, had been cut off by the cable company without notice (which apparently has happened to other UP campgrounds). The biggest drawback we had was the incredible smoke from many campfires, making it impossible to sit outside during the evening.

Date of Stay:

Sites where we stayed nearer the road was not as level as we'd have liked. However, surprisingly quiet at night. Fire rings at ground level creating a walking hazard, particularly at night. We'd stay there again.
