The property that this campground sits on is beautiful and has such great potential. But the campground is just average. Our site was level and hookups were easily accessible. They have sites on a small stream but the hookups are on the wrong side unless you pull a motorhome in. Overall the RV sites need a little TLC. The pool was a little aged but clean. There is a nice lake to fish on and there are some strenuous hiking trails on campground property. It is certainly convenient to the many activities in the Brevard area. If we came back, we would probably stay here again because there is not much else to choose from.

This campground does not offer much in the way of amenities, but there are few camping choices in this area. It is clean and quiet. I visit the Concord area quite often and have usually stayed at the Camping Racing Resort which is nothing more than a gravel parking lot with scarce offerings of shade. I will definitely stay here from now on. Our site was nicely shaded, respectably level, and had a concrete patio pad. The only complaint I had with our site was the location of the utilities. Power was in a convenient location but water was on the wrong side of the site, in a submerged irrigation system tub, and the sewer connection was so far back to the rear of the site I had to back up when we were ready to leave to dump the tanks. I will definitely stay here again when in the area.

We absolutely loved this campground. Our site was paved with a concrete patio, level, and shady. Even though our site was not directly on the lake, we still had a nice view (Site 49). The park staff was friendly. We liked being able to choose swimming in either the lake or the pool. The cafe food was good and reasonably priced. Wi-Fi was acceptable. Our only complaint would be the road noise from I-295. It wasn't unbearable where we were, but we did notice it when sitting outside. We will definitely camp here again.

We used this campground as an overnight stop on our way to Florida. It is an older park that needs some work. Nothing special thus my rating. We really did not take advantage of any amenities because we were here only for one night. We did walk the campground and trekked down to the river. They have a nice dock that extends out and it seems like a good place to fish. The tide was out when we were here. As somebody else mentioned, the cable TV was fuzzy. We did not have any other issues and found the park to be extremely quiet at night. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

It was expensive to stay in Club Castaways over Labor Day weekend, but well worth the money. The sites are spaced out enough so you are not on top of your neighbor, they are paved and level, and there are bath houses and a pool that only Club Castaways residents can use. There were never more than 8 people in the pool when we went and even though it was booked heavily for the weekend, the entire Club Castaways area was quiet. We were fortunate/unfortunate to be there during Hurricane Earle (a big non-event) and joined a hurricane party at one of their bars. They also have a Tiki bar on their beach which had karaoke or live entertainment most nights. Their store is well stocked and even has a little restaurant that has quite the varied menu. We enjoyed a pancake breakfast one morning and a fantastic sunrise every morning. It was also very cool to see the wild ponies on Assateague Island right across the bay romping and carrying on in the water. Of course they have a multi-tiered dock to observe the ponies and the sunrises. I do not have kids, but it seemed there was plenty to keep the them as well as the adults occupied. I did not use it, but they do have a shuttle bus that takes you to Ocean City or Assateague Island. They have redone this resort the right way and I will definitely return.

This is a great campground if you want a lot of activities. We swam in the pool, fished, shot some pool and played air hockey in the game room, played prize bingo, and participated in the rubber duck race. Even with all that, we had time to kick back and relax in front of a camp fire both evenings we were here. We had one of the VIP sites and found it to be level and private. I had not been here since it was RJ Ranch and was very fond of the way they ran the campground. I found the staff of Lakeridge to be very friendly and helpful. We will definitely camp here again.

I'll start by saying this is a nice, peaceful campground but how the previous posts give it a 9 I'll never know. The sites are paved and level. Aside from a bath house and pavilion, there are no amenities within the campground. You have to drive into Tanglewood Park if you want to fish or swim and you have to pay extra for that privilege. That is the reason I give it a 7. A nice campground in the Winston-Salem area was needed and this fits the bill. I will definitely camp here again.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay over the 4th of July weekend. I had a lake view site on tier 3 and a beautiful sunset every evening. The staff is friendly and helpful. I especially liked the RV Bar which gave us a chance to socialize with others staying at the resort and they had live music 2 days. Having lakeside access allowed us to use our kayaks and do a little fishing. The reasons I don't give it a 10: swimming area in the lake is kind of small and I would have liked it to be in a little deeper area where you can't touch the mucky bottom. Also there is no shade relief when it is hot. Those reasons are not enough to keep me from returning again in the near future.

We have stayed here in the past. It is an average campground. Easy access off of I-95 and a short drive to downtown Savannah. The sites are sand and fairly level. It is kind of messy when it rains. It is almost amazing how many overnight campers they get. We stayed 3 nights and had a new camper next to us each night. The campground workers are very friendly. We have stayed at all of the campgrounds in the area and like this one the best. For dinner, I highly recommend Steamers and Love's Restaurant which are a short drive from the campground.

Far enough from I-81 that you do not hear any highway noise. The staff was very friendly and kept the park up nicely. As stated before, the WiFi was iffy. We enjoyed an Ice Cream social one night and a pancake breakfast another morning. Our site was #18 and was a very roomy pull through. They definitely need to consider adding cable TV, however we were able to get a satellite signal at our site. We would definitely stay here again.

As some of the previous reviews suggest, bring your leveling blocks. There are very few sites where you will not need them. Also make sure you have an extra water hose and y-connector. In the A and C loops you will most likely have to share a water spigot with your neighbor. This is a local campground for us, so we use it many times a year for a quick getaway. We like to kayak and fish on the lake. The pool is open between Memorial Day and Labor Day, however we were disappointed that the hours have been shortened. There are tennis courts, golf course, and boat marina within walking distance. That said, we were shocked that the price has gone from $19 to $25 since January of this year. That is quite a jump for no real improvements. For the type of campground this is, I thought $19-$20 was a fair price. They did add WI-FI however nobody we talked to in the C loop could get connected. Several times a year, we bring the MH home out for a week and commute to work. Now that they are priced closer to a private campground, I hope some major improvements are on the horizon. Several others made their displeasure known about the rate increase as well. If they make some major improvements like water for each site, leveling some sites, etc, then it will be worth it.

We camped here at Christmas, and received a discounted rate for having a KOA card. Usually during winter camping you cannot take advantage of all the amenities. They have a heated swimming pool enclosed by a tent, which we found to be a nice touch. As mentioned in another review, the nature trail was poorly marked. While we did not use the bath house, we did check them out and found them very clean. The sites are a mixture of dirt and gravel. We had a pull through which was fairly level. They do have cable TV, however it was more important to us to get a satellite signal for the NFL Sunday Ticket. We were told that all of their sites are satellite friendly and we did not have a problem getting a signal. It was a very easy 10 mile trip to downtown Charleston for sightseeing. There is plenty of shopping within blocks of the campground for groceries and supplies. I only have one complaint. We requested a lake view site. When I made reservations, I was told nothing was available. In fact, I was told they only had 2 sites available. During our entire stay, there were many more than 2 sites available. Also there were sites across from us overlooking the lake that were used for overnight campers. You would think that somebody camping for 4 nights would get a preferred spot over somebody there for 1 night. Especially since when you make a reservation they can not guarantee a particular site. They will only try to do their best to get you the site you want. I have run into this at other campgrounds as well and really do not understand it. Regardless of this flaw, we would definitely camp here again.

From previous posts and our experience, it seems site reservations and coordination of groups is a problem for this campground. We had reserved 3 side-by-side sites for 3 nights. One in our party tried to cancel 2 days in advance. He could never get anybody to answer the phone. He left a message on the answering machine stating he had to cancel. When he called again the next day, he was told since he did not give 48 hours notice he was going to be charged for one night. He told them he left a message on their machine. They said they never got the message. When I originally made my reservation, I could never get an answer either. I left a message and they returned my call within an hour. When I arrived, I double checked to make sure the other camper in our party was going to be in the site next to ours. They confirmed this and said it was not a problem. When our other camper showed up a few hours later, they were assigned a site 2 spots away. When we complained at the office, we were told they already promised the site to somebody else. I told them that is not what I was told earlier. They said nothing could be changed. Later that evening an overnight camper showed up on that site, but there were many other empty spots that they could have been sent to. With as many open sites as they had, they could have very easily had us in side by side sites. This is just an average campground. The sites are fairly level and all sandy soil. It is convenient to get to from I-95 and the ride to downtown Savannah is not too bad. The pool area was clean. In the office, they had a nicely stocked store. The next time we are in Savannah we will probably stay somewhere else.

We had stayed here about 6 years ago when it was Bellaire Woods and experienced the nasty owner that everyone has talked about. It is now Savannah Oaks RV Resort. We decided to give it another try since it is under new ownership. When checking in, the girls in the office were polite and helpful. If there was someone in the office, the gate was opened for us when we reentered the park otherwise we had to use a code. Work is being done to upgrade the park; we saw a new pool and playground. Their sites however are average at best. We were on site 35. It was fairly level but barely wide enough to accommodate a triple slide MH. We had to jockey around to get it situated just right between trees and the power pole. The sites are paved with a large gravel stone which is uncomfortable to walk on barefoot. We were there for 5 days and did not see the bath house cleaned once. The floors were dirty and there was not any toilet paper in one. At $34.75 a night, I would not stay here again unless I heard they have made improvements to the sites.

After reading the previous reviews giving this campground a 9 and 10, I wonder what those people would give to a campground that has full hookups, cable TV, paved sites, etc. That being said, this is a very nice campground. The gravel entrance road to the campground is a little rough. There are only a couple sites in the shaded area that are big enough for bigger rigs. We stayed in the main loop. The sites were grassy and fairly level. One water spigot is shared between 2 sites so bring a splitter and extra water hose. With a multiple slide RV, you will find the sites a little tight if you are between neighbors. There are 2 dump stations. There is a small playground in the campground area. Within a short walk in the park, there are fishing lakes, canoe rentals, and miniature golf. The canoe rentals and miniature golf are seasonal. They do not have a swimming pool; however there is a public pool a short ways away that you can pay to use. The whole park is kept up very well. We have camped here many times and will continue to do so. I give it a 7 because of the lack of some amenities but it is a great deal at $17 a night.
