Disregard that prior review ("Best RV park in Texas"). This is a clean, plain, remote (12 miles from Palestine), run-down looking CG with shaded grassy sites, loose dogs, a friendly manager, no WiFi or cable TV. Didn't see a bath or shower house. The grass needed mowing. It was great for an overnight after a long tow, but not much else.

Date of Stay:

This CG offers basic accommodations - full hookups, cable, Wi-Fi. It is a very plain setting with narrow sites (17' - just enough for slide and awning), no trees, only landscaping at office area, small pool. Very helpful manager; CD loaners for talking Battlefield tour. Perfect for an overnight or to see the excellent sights in Vicksburg, convenient to gas and shopping. Just not a destination. We would probably not revisit the area.

Date of Stay:

Excellent COE park with long paved pads, large gravel patios, good sized sites, shade, full hookups, clean rest rooms, etc. Waterfront sites overlook murky fingers off the river; not overly scenic or appealing. Sites not overly private. Very hot in July. Would return in cooler weather.

Date of Stay:

Very clean, attractive, well-landscaped CG almost surrounded by water. Nice views from many sites. Peaceful trail traces the shoreline. Strong cable and Wi-Fi. Single major drawback - very narrow sites (17') - barely enough for a slide-out and awning.

Date of Stay:

This full featured KOA has become seedy, un-groomed - it's not bad, but it's just not appealing. We first stayed here in '99. Sites are small, good Wi-Fi and cable. Convenient to I-75, gas and shopping. We'd only stay here again to visit family in the area.

Date of Stay:

Very scenic small CG with views up the valley to the Roan Mountain range. Views change hourly. Half of sites back right up to babbling Doe River (only 10-15' wide). Nice sized grass sites with concrete patios - all full hook-ups. No facilities other than hook-ups (no rest rooms, showers, cable, Wi-Fi, cell phone coverage, playground, activities, etc.) Just a very scenic, peaceful, pleasant CG. Convenient to TN/NC mountain tourist activities in Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, etc. Directions: on Heaton Creek Road just off SR 143 south. Big Rigs: very tight turn over small bridge to enter CG. MH > 40' or 5W > 35' may not fit. We would definitely stay there again.

This is a wonderful family park on a long stretch of the Middle River (great for tubing if its not too low). While the CG is on the river, few sites are "waterfront" or even "view." Lots of tall trees, grass & gravel. Pond and river fishing (trout stocked). Very friendly staff. Wi-Fi is good, Cable is OK, cell phone coverage poor. Lots of tourist activities in neighboring Stanton. A definite destination CG. We would definitely stay here again.

We spend Father's Day weekend here with our grandchildren. It is an excellent destination park, especially for families and kids. Large friendly staff, well stocked store, lots of planned activities, nice wooded sites, good bath house and laundry facilities. We like this CG. Now for some knockoffs. KOA is definitely pricy AND adds a $4/night "Resort/Activities Fee" price gouging. Cable TV is limited to basically network channels. WiFi can be spotty. We experienced low voltage (fortunately did not have to run AC). Some campground roads need trimming and sites can be bit tight getting into. But for Father's Day with your grandchildren, it was perfect. We'll be back on our next visit.

The good news is that this campground is still here in the congested southwestern suburbs and is convenient for visiting family & friends. It's a decent campground - some parts quite attractive, others quite dated; some sites roomy, some wooded, others open and grassy . Cable TV was good. WiFi (only at office) was problematic. Waterfront "lake" is an overgrown lily pond with a large frog population. We'll stay here again to visit family.

Another difficult CG to rate. Full service KOA with very active staff, office, grounds, etc. Has no cable TV. WiFi coverage was spotty. It's close to our daughter and grandchildren. Sites vary: in the woods, open with some grass near office, decent size back-ins by the cabins. Makes a great base camp for exploring the area.

Date of Stay:

Ratings are relative. We've stayed at Timberline multiple times on trips north/south through NYC. It's a great, quiet, clean place to spend the night. It's no resort or destination but quite functional. Wi-Fi available only around the office. High percentage of permanents but generally reasonably maintained. We'll definitely stop here again on our next trip through.

Date of Stay:

Overall, this park is a gem. Sites are under tall pines, clean, generally decent size. Park staff quite active and helpful. Memorial Day weekend was sold out: but never got noisy or rowdy. It's a beautiful waterfront marina with kayak rentals to explore marsh trails through Janes Island. Restrooms are barely OK: just not adequate to handle a heavy tenter crowd. Large mix of non-electric sites encourage tenters. Water available from taps throughout the park; fill up before going to your site. Poor signage for Park Entrance, Registration. WiFi readily available downtown. We would definitely return.

Date of Stay:

Very nice CG stretched along mouth of Chesapeake Bay. Variety of sites: on the dunes or in the woods. Campground roads are narrow and not well pruned back in places. Has multiple boardwalks over the dunes to the huge beach. Bathhouses are not fancy but quite functional. Has a good camp store. Free WiFi (at camp store). Has a good laundry.

Date of Stay:

This is not a campground. It is a very crowded permanent trailer park with 12 +/- scattered very narrow sites rented to travelers at an unreasonably high price ($55). The few pluses: it's a short walk to a nice beach access, only option for Kitty Hawk (Wright Brothers, etc.) area. Has no restrooms or showers. WiFi is $17/day (so I checked "no"). Overall, a very unsatisfactory spot. Would not camp here again, (have seen Wright Brothers).

Date of Stay:

Initial impressions are not strong - dirt road with pot holes, looks a bit run down. But it turned out to be a very pleasant spot and we extended from 2 nights to 4. Sites along the canal were very relaxing and pleasant. Decent beach where you can walk out for "miles" at low tide. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable TV. Friendly staff. Good value compared to what you pay elsewhere on the Outer Banks. Making improvements but will never be a "resort." We would definitely stay here again.
