Easy access off hwy 105. You are in a good location to access Blowing Rock, Boone, Banner Elk, Grandfather mountain. The park is clean. The sites are not very wide. We were in site A6 which gives great access to the Wautaga River which kids love to splash in. It was steps away and a short climb down the rocks on the bank. It is a rocky creek really with clean water. All the A area sites back up to it. They are easy to back into. I needed a couple of leveling blocks on one side. No big deal. The parking pad is gravel with a small grass yard with table and fire ring. Bathhouse was OK, looking tired inside. There is a nice small playground and sandbox. The sites on the hill are in a open field with some shaded sites. They have a nice view of the surrounding mountains. The roads in the facility are gravel and not too steep. It is in a valley. We enjoyed fishing at the trout pond next door, a separate business. I would stay here again.

This is a clean, well equipped resort. It has a playground with nice equipment for kids. Several very nicely appointed bath houses with clean showers. All amenities a family will need. There are shaded sites and open sites. We had a open site on the highest point in the campground, so we had a view of the ocean and a good sea breeze. We turned off the A/C at bedtime and had a nice breeze to sleep with in early June. Easy walk to the beach as well. There is a super view from the gazebo they have on top of a tall dune where they also have a hot dog and ice cream grill. Staff was nice. We thought it was worth the expense. We will stay here again with our kids.

We found this to be a very pretty campground. The sites are large and surrounded by forest. We had a site that had a trail through the woods to the lake. About 75 feet away. We could see the lake through the trees. All the roads are paved. The site had power and water. It was level with a table, lantern hook, and fire pit. Our son loved the sandy beach and swimming area. They have loaner life jackets at the beach. There is also a boat ramp and playground. Nice campground. We would stay here again.
