This park is clean as were the restrooms/showers. Both the laundry area and pool area were spotless. Overall the park is very clean and nicely laid out (except for site size). WiFi was a little slow and hard to get connected to and any type of television is all but non existence. The sites are very close together and for the most part setup for motor coaches. Our camper is 38 feet in length and pretty much filled up the pull through site we had. Once unhooked, parking the truck was an issues. Now the park does give some beautiful views of the mountains. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Wears Valley, where the park is located, is a wonderful area to camp. Important note: If you are considering this park do not let your GPS bring you into this park via Townsend, TN. The section of road (HWY 321) that runs from Townsend to Wears Valley is not a safe pull for anything larger than a pop-up. Use Hwy 321 South from Sevierville, TN.

Staff is friendly, park is clean, and sites are ample. This was the second time we had used this RV Park. The roads were in bad shape and in talking to the manager he stated that his roads were being reworked. I know that two years ago they were paved versus gravel now. Apparently, his contractor the first time around did a very poor job and now the campground is having to scramble a little to get the roads back in shape. The park is easy to access and actually a very nice place to stay if passing through or camping to explore the local area. WiFi is available, while the staff will readily admit it is not the best. Restrooms and showers are all private enclosures and very spacious. Certainly high quality and nice. The pool was not open yet, but the area looked very clean and well maintained.

If you are a water and sand individual. this park might be for you. We camped as part of a camping club event. I thought the sites were a little to close. We kept our rear blinds closed all the time so as not to be looking in another campers rear window. The wind blew continuously and at times the only solution to all the rocking was to run the slides in on the camper. I have to admit that the facility was clean. Showers were clean as was the restrooms. The majority of the sites do not have a water view because of the direction they are aligned. The most disturbing issue was the non-camping fisherman. This park is located on both sides of the road. One side has a gate requiring access codes. The other is open to anyone who wants to drive through and locals use the access to fish. They do not exactly care if you are camped on the side or not. Utilities for the camper were strangely split. Water was completely at the front of the site while electric and sewer very near the back. This made positioning the camper a little challenging. Luckily I carry several extra feet of water hose. Sites were paved as were the interior roads. Not as level as they look though.

This park was a surprise. The office, showers, and restroom were all spotless. The laundry was very modern. Parking sites were fairly level for a campground in such a hilly area of Virginia. Every site was well shaded. Utilities were nicely located in one grouping which is not always the case. Access to the park is fairly easy, being just a couple miles off the interstate. I would have no problem camping here again.

This park is easy access off I-95. I found the staff friendly. Wife used the laundry and was pleased with everything. The bath house was clean, while a little dated in layout and needing some updates. Interior roads need gravel as do the parking sites. The parking area look as they had not seen work in several years.

Staff was very friendly and helpful in getting parked. The park is typical of an older KOA in layout. The only real issue was with the roads needing some gravel and general grounds care. It was easy to see that in rain the park would be a little sloppy. The park was easy to access and if we pass through New Bern again, I'd certainly consider this park again. The bathhouse was clean, but dated and could use a little updating.

As always, an absolutely spotless park with extremely friendly staff. Easy access, good location, quiet, clean and beautiful location for this park.

First, the rate shown represents a 90 day snowbird rate. The park is still one of our favorite places to stay. With that, it is showing some age and the infrastructure is needing some updates. The laundry room needs attention as several washers and dryers have been "out of order" for the stay, the roads are paved but cracking and need sealing before they are gone completely. Most every site needs some attention as there is little grass now and mostly sand. The park did get the new Wi-Fi system up and running this year, which was a plus. Staff as always is friendly and helpful. The park seems to be moving towards more and more permanent sites which is a big disappointment.

Date of Stay:

This is a very well maintained older park. Many sites are well shaded. The sites are level with concrete patios, swings on each site, grills on sites, and nicely mowed grass space between sites. We camped with our camping club and most of the coaches were 38+ feet in length. No one had any issues with the size of the sites. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Some sites on one side of the lake are pull thru. Sites on the back side are all back in, the owner leads each coach to the side and assist in positioning. This is not a big campground by some standards, but it is certainly a very well maintained and worth the stay if in the area. Just 4 miles off the interstate, the park is easy to access.

The park was very cramped. We were traveling with four other rigs (40 ft) and they had a few parking issues getting turned/backed into the sites. I was lucky enough to get a pull thru site but without sewer. Since we all were just passing through one night was not much of a problem. Certainly was a lot of shade and low hanging trees. The park itself is hard to find and one of our party who was meeting the rest of the group there actually got lost and wound up on a country road he did not want to be on at all. There are many full time sites taken by trailers that obviously never move. Overall the park was clean, restrooms clean (old), and the campers friendly. I felt secure and would use it again for an overnight.

Date of Stay:

Simply an extremely fine place to stay. The sites are all paved, level, private, and beautifully maintained. The manager and his staff are very friendly. Showers are modern, clean, with a lovely clubhouse. When you look at the pictures online, it is what you will see there. Every site is just perfect, not just a few.

The campground is certainly dated and needs a ton of work. I did not see any sites that were not needing new gravel. The sites have not been updated for several years. We found rusty screws at multiple sites that appeared to be the same as used on the picnic tables. I requested and moved from our first site because of a ditch that had been dug to repair a water line and not properly filled back in. This hazard was right out our door, and I could just see the wife tripping and falling. The campground sites are short in length. Our rig is 37.5' long and needed a little play to get positioned well on the site. Some of the other units we were camping with were even worse. There is no camp store. The advertised breakfast cafe was not open, no propane, no ice or anything else available. While clean, the showers and restrooms were certainly dated and needing work. The campground is right off a major road, and there is a lot of road noise all night long. Cable worked well, internet connection worked well, but that was about all. The water pressure was at best around 20# according to my gauge. This would not be a place I would want to stay for many nights and only as a overnight if nothing else was available.

One stay here and it will be very hard to stay someplace else. The campsites are simply huge. Except for just a very few most are 90 ft plus pull through in length. Only about 20 sites are back-in and those are lake side sites. The only two things that might be of some issue for a few is the lack of cable and internet at your site. However, the local channels are very good and there are several. Secure internet is available at the clubhouse and laundry room. The park is nearly a mile off the road and so quiet at night it is amazing. This park has a staff that is head and shoulders above most when it comes to be friendly and helpful. This is our second stay here and we'll be back next season for the winter. The rate i've shown is a little misleading as we stayed for the winter season (90 days). Normal rate is around $50.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here two years ago right after a major modernization of the park. In the two years since somethings have been neglected. The park is currently partly closed for new construction. In the showers, while still clean, it was obvious that the repairs made were not the best quality. The staff was mostly young, but friendly. Most of the open sites are paved and easy to park. The price at a KOA, and this one is no exception, is a little high in comparison other parks. With that said, we usually stay here because of location and because of a disastrous situation stay at another local park.

This is maybe the cleanest park I've ever stayed camped at. The grounds, camp office/meeting area, and bathrooms were spotless. Every sight is paved and level. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Access is easy off the expressway without having to drive through all the madness that is sometimes associated with traffic in this area. The price shown ($25/night) for our stay reflect the off season cost. I asked about in season price and was surprise to find it was cheaper than other campgrounds we have stayed at in the area. The only amenity I did not find here was propane refill. Wi-Fi was free and fast. The view of the river and area is great. With all that, the park only has 55 sites and if you're planning an in-season stay I would recommend reservations.
