This is one of the neatest well kept parks that I have stayed in. The owners were very helpful and immediately corrected a leak from the water faucet as soon as I brought it to their attention. A good location for overnight travel along the I-78 corridor. However, that closeness comes with a price and that is noise. Be prepared to run your AC even if you don't need it just to drown out the noise. We will stay here again on our trip south next spring.

Date of Stay:

They had put down fresh stone and graded the roads so mud and dust were not a problem. The sites are pretty close together with little or no privacy. On air TV reception was good and our AT&T signal was strong. The park wifi was so slow it was useless. Park is a good location for touring Gettysburg and the surrounding area and the operator was very helpful with maps, info and ideas that facilitated our visit.

Roads were dusty and the hookups need upgrading. We paid for a pull through along the stream but most of the pull throughs required you to back in due to the location of the hookups and trees. The staff was helpful and the location is good for those traveling on I-81 or I-78. We would stay here again but would not pay extra for a pull through.

The park was very clean and the roads were just graded with a fresh stone surface. We had a full hookup back in site that was angled for an easy entrance. The wifi worked and we had 3 bars on AT&T. The roads leading to the park are narrow and curvy. Take it slow and don't worry about holding up the speeders for a few minutes and you will be fine. We would stay here again.

The park is nicely developed. I can not comment on how it would be during the busy season as only 6 units were there when we stayed. There are short paved bike trails that run from the campground to the lake and along the lake so you don't have to ride on the roads. No wifi but our AT&T service was o.k. outside of the trailer. As it is just a few minutes from I-81 we would stay here again when traveling through the area.

Park is a convenient place to stay while visiting the area. The roads in and out are very narrow and if you are towing a trailer you have to exit by the entrance road. That was not a problem, just a little confusing. The wifi worked good but there were not a lot of users. I would stay here again if visiting Cherokee, however I would try to find another area around GSMNP that was not just a "tourist trap".

Of the few sites that they have for RVs, make sure that you get a level one. Site R13 in particular has a 8" side to side fall that makes it impossible to level your rig on. We moved to site R2 and it was very level and long so we could remain hooked up if wanted. There are many interesting short hike trails and you are just outside of a very busy city with lots of things to do. No wifi but our AT&T worked good.

The operators of this park are doing their best to keep it clean and inviting, but it is in a terrible location. As you exit the interstate northbound there are two semi abandoned shopping centers whose only tenants are an adult book store and a massage parlor. On the southbound side next to the park is an abandoned truck plaza that had squatters living in it. The noise from the interstate is very loud and on the other side of the park is a very active train track where the horn is sounded for the road crossing. We tried to walk around the park but encountered several loose dogs that belonged to the long term residents of the park. The night we stayed there was only two other units that were not long term. We would not stay here again.

We loved this park. The only thing to watch for is which site you are on as some are not as private as the others. We were on site 57 which is close to the beach and private. Our AT&T service was marginal but allowed us to use email. Bring your bikes as it is a great place for riding. If you want to kayak, make sure that you know when the tide is going to be low as there is not much water on the bay side near the boat ramp.

Date of Stay:

If you can get one of the waterfront sites it is a good place to stay. If not on the water you are basically in a parking lot. The beach is not walkable at high tide but at low tide you can walk about 1/4 mile to the west of the park. The WiFi was so slow that it is of little use.

This is a good location for touring the "nature coast". The roads in the park are paved which helps keep down the dust. The sites are spacious and you don't have that parking lot feeling. The only negative that we had was the sandy sites so make sure you bring a mat to put down in front of your steps. We will return when in the area.

This is the nicest park in the area. It is very well maintained, the sites are large and you are on a concrete pad and patio. They were putting in a lot of new landscaping during our visit and we were impressed with how nice the park looks. There were no derelict structures on the sites which is common at other parks in the area. They now have free WiFi which worked very well. We are coming back next year.

This is one of our favorite parks and we stop here for a break every time we go to Florida. The park has trails, water access to both ponds and the river and is located far enough from I-95 so that highway noise is not a problem. There is much to do in the area which makes this much better than just for an overnight stay. The only negative is the bugs, but that goes with the territory.

Date of Stay:

Park has easy access to I-81 and I-77. It had just rained and the sites were muddy. Also not level. Some of the sites had concrete pads but they were all occupied. There was a lot of junk stored near the front of the park which distracted from the overall appearance. Park is good for an overnight and we would return.

Date of Stay:

Park is 90% permanent campers. All the good sites are taken and the site that we were assigned to only had 15 amp service. The roads are very narrow, the turns are tight and there are many tree branches that need to be trimmed. There is nothing much in the immediate area. I would not stay here again.
