Date of Stay: January, 2016
Probably my favorite campground in NC. This place is immaculate. The bathrooms are spotless. We stayed for New Years and spent several days exploring the Asheville area and breweries. We stayed in site 25.
Date of Stay: July, 2015
Stayed here for two nights in one of the pull through sites. Staff was constantly cleaning and helping campers. No complaints other than the inflated price.
Date of Stay: October, 2014
Stayed in site B6 for 2 nights during a weekend of geocaching events in the park. I chose this site because I wanted something in the woods but still close enough to the group sites that I could take a short walk over to join my friends staying in that area. Note that on the park map this site is mislabeled as C7. It was an easy to back in site and was close to the bath house. As noted in other reviews, the water hook ups are in the far back of the sites; bring 2 hoses. I enjoyed my stay here, no complaints other than my RV being bombarded all weekend by falling acorns. The sites in the open field were a little too close to each other for my taste.

First time staying here. I have no complaints. We brought our kayaks and were able to launch from the kayak rental area. Most sites are large enough for your rig and a couple of vehicles. The bathrooms at the center pool area were very clean. We enjoyed the place so much we rarely ventured to the beach areas of Hilton Head.
Date of Stay: April, 2014
We stayed here for 3 nights during spring break. While somewhat similar to camping in a parking lot, the sites are large enough to accommodate a RV and several vehicles. Not much privacy but the positives outweigh this. Very clean bath houses. The rate included Wi-Fi, cable, etc. No nickel and diming like many other CG's do. Even found a decent restaurant/bar on the beach just outside CG on the north side. Enjoyed everything here on our visit with the exception of the constant wind that would not allow us to safely open our awning but I guess that's just what you get at the beach.

My first stay here. Used this campground as a base camp for a weekend of geocaching and brewery hopping in Asheville. There were only 2 other campers in the park so it was very quiet. As reported in previous reviews, the bathrooms and showers were spotless. I drove up to the top sites to check them out.....still a work in progress. My site was adequate and we were able to squeeze 2 vehicles in at the front and back. Beautiful campsites but they all are a tad tight. Did not try the Wi-Fi or cable. Would definitely stay here again.

No complaints about this campground. Very clean bathrooms and nice staff. We stayed here as a base camp for geocaching in the area. Would definitely stay here again.
Date of Stay: April, 2013
First time camping here. Very nice area with great trails for hiking. Large campsites. Not a big deal for us but cell phone coverage at the campground is sporadic and not very useable.
Date of Stay: September, 2012
First time camping here although it is less than 30 minutes from home. There are just a few sites that will accommodate a popup camper. We stayed on site 22 which is large enough to work for us. Fairly quiet campground other than the airplanes coming and going into nearby RDU. Overall a nice campground if you can live without electrical hook ups.
Date of Stay: August, 2012
First time here camping in our pop up. Stayed on site 19 which allowed plenty of room for our camper but backing in was a challenge. The drop off between the road and the campsite caused my rig to bottom out but we were able to finally get it in the site by very careful maneuvering. The bath house was fairly clean and there are doors on the shower stalls (mentioned in previous reviews that there were not). Beautiful park here with amazing trails and views. We will be back again. Did not see any travel trailers (would be a tight fit) and only about 3 pop ups.
Date of Stay: July, 2011
Second time staying here in the last two years. No complaints. Very clean bathrooms. The trails in this park are wonderful. 78 degrees in July, fresh blueberries to be picked, great wildlife and views!
Date of Stay: November, 2010
Camped here with a large group of geocachers, some that stayed in the family area and others that stayed in the Group tent camping area. The family camping area has 33 sites, some with a view of the lake. Each site in this area has a paved parking area and large tent pad. My pop up fit well on the paved driveway but it was somewhat unlevel. Travel trailers larger than about 24 feet may be challenged for room. The one bath house in this area was clean and the hot water was adequate. The park was quite attractive and large. I would have given a slightly higher rating but was somewhat aggravated that the family camping area and group camping areas are separated by gates and they lock these at 6 PM. We had friends in the group site but could not visit with them after 6 pm.

This is a beautiful campground. The bath houses could be a little larger (1 shower stall) but other than that, no complaints. There were wonderful trails in the park. We used this as a basecamp for riding the nearby Creeper trail. We will be back.

This campground is located a few miles outside of Boone and gives easy access to the many local activities available. Yes, the roads within the campground are a little rough but nothing that can't be managed at slow speeds. The wireless internet was sporadic and worked better when I was sitting outside of the camper. For those that desire wireless access, try to get a site that is close to the cg office. The bathrooms were clean despite the cg being full this weekend. The individual sites were spaced out as most KOAs are and there is lots of shade. Overall I thought this cg was great and I would definitely return.

First time we have camped at this KOA. We took advantage of the one night free weekend and chose one of the premium sites that had a paved patio, cushioned glider/seat, table with umbrella and fire pit. We also took our kayaks as there is a nice boat ramp and pier area in the campground that is on the Neuse river. The staff here is very friendly and helpful. The cable system was great and the wifi also worked well. Historic downtown New Bern is about a ten minute drive away. We would definitely return to this campground.
