This campground is very conveniently located on US-17 North. It is very convenient to multiple shopping centers and gas stations. The sites were fairly level and some were more spacious than others. We've definitely seen smaller. Overall, we were pleased with the space of our site. The bathrooms were kept clean and the showers did as well (we didn't use them though). The kids enjoyed the pool and the wagon ride (on Fridays and Saturdays) to the Oakland plantation nearby. Power and water pressure were good, as was the wifi. We were able to reliably access the web via their wifi. All day trash pickup at your site was a nice convenience. We would stay here again.

You can't beat the convenience to the beach with access at the back of the campground. The spaciousness of the sites is typical for the beach, narrow, but we could extend our awning and slides without a problem. The pools were clean and there is a lot for the kids to do. I did notice the voltage level on my on my smart meter getting into unsafe territory while there. It was frequently around 108v, which while technically safe, is a bit low for my comfort. I did test power in an empty site and found the same results. I'm not sure if we would stay there again. If we did, it would be off-season to avoid the high daily rates.

Disney parks aside, we really enjoyed this campground. We stayed in a premium site in the 1400 loop, which is centrally located between the Settlement and Outpost. Also close to the Trading Post, campfire area, and pool. The site was perfectly level and spacious enough. There are plenty of activities and things to do for those times you aren't heading to the parks. One tip, because it wasn't mentioned at check in or in our paperwork, I had read online that there are cable modems available at the Trading Post on a first come, first served basis at no charge. Connecting to the cable at our site we had reliable Internet all week.

The pull-through sites are level, but tight. There are some sites where extending your awning may not be possible. The facilities were well maintained and clean. There are multiple pools and a large patio area. The camp store was fairly well stocked and the staff was friendly. If we do another trip to Hersey, we wouldn't have an issue staying here again, but would try to get an end site to try to squeeze out more room.

We enjoyed our stay here and the location is almost perfect for visiting DC and Baltimore. The upper level sites are level, but lack shade. The lower level has plenty of shade, but some leveling will be necessary. The facilities were clean and the campground was kept up well. The staff is very friendly and always willing to help. There are plenty of activities for the kids. The store is well stocked and we didn't have any issues with WiFi. I took off a couple points because they were experiencing some issues with their hot water supply (but I'm sure they will correct it, they were already attacking it when we left) and our site could've used some fresh gravel. When it rained our site got a little messy. Definitely nothing to keep us from coming back.

We stayed during the off season, so the campground was not full. By the end of the week, most of the waterfront sites were full however, which did show that these sites are tight and with no privacy. The sounds of the creek was a definite plus and helped with possible noise issues. The owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were older, but clean. We would definitely stay here again. During peak season, we'd be tempted to go for the mountain view sites, in order to get more space.

We've always been big fans of the NC State Parks system, and we will continue to use them. It's unfortunate that budget cuts are really noticeable. The cleanliness of the bathhouses is the lowest I've ever seen at this park. I would have had to have been very desperate to use the showers. Some of the sites no longer have gravel covering them as weeds have taken over. That said, the sites are very generous in size and private. We had a great time, and we will camp here again.

There are quite a few pluses for this campground: the staff is extremely nice and helpful, family friendly and the kids love the amenities, and it's in a beautiful area of the blue ridge mountains. That said, there are some minuses: the power quality is low (my meter had swings from 120 - 96v), leveling at the sites can be hard, if not impossible, and the restrooms could/should have been cleaned more often. I don't know if we would stay here again. Perhaps if other options weren't available.

I'll get the negatives out the way. First, my reservation was screwed up. I had booked a patio site online, but found out that it was already in use by another party. I wasn't given an explanation as to why this happened. Second, the earlier reviews that complain about the bugs are not an exaggeration. Terribly annoying gnats that can make it difficult to eat outside or sit by the fire. One of the pools was out of service - problem with the water quality - which made the one remaining pool very crowded. All that said, this is a very nice KOA. The pull-through site that we were given was very spacious, level, and had well placed hookups. The pool that was open was clean and the kids had a blast. One last thing to note is that they won't be affiliated with KOA much longer (according to one of the workers). They are in the midst of a name change to Fayetteville RV Resort and Campground.

We were very pleased with Zooland. We stayed in the lower sites (back-in sites) which were more spacious than the pull-through section in the upper level. The restrooms and showers were clean. Pool was clean as well and the playgrounds for the kids were thoroughly enjoyed. We would definitely stay here again.

This was an overnight stop. We arrived late and if we hadn't, we probably would've tried to find something else. This campground looks as though it's been neglected for years. There are some seasonals and it looked as though they gave up on keeping their site and rig looking half-way respectable. We wouldn't stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We did an overnight there and will probably come back for an extended visit in the future. At a minimum, we have found our overnight stop for our trips along I-95. I would've given a 10, but didn't because of no water hookups at the electric sites. That said, this was a very nice park. The sites are large and shade is just about right (some sun/some shade). The restrooms and showers are cleaned daily (according to signage) and it showed.

Nightly rate include Good Sam discount. It was an overall good experience here. We stayed mid-week, so it wasn't a full campground, but definitely not empty. There are a lot of seasonal campers here and always golf cart traffic, but people seemed friendly. The office folks were nice and helpful. We didn't use the small pool since it was heated and it was already mid-90's, so we opted for the larger unheated pool, which was clean. The laundry was fully functional and clean as well. Don't know about bathrooms and showers (we didn't use them). The lower sites are grassy and since it's been so wet up there, the ground was soft in spots. We would camp here again.

This is a campground/state park operated by the New York DEC. There are no RV hookups, but there is a dump station near the exit of the park. It is a large park and actually surrounds Fourth Lake. There are two beaches (one has a life guard). While there are no water hookups, there are water spigots placed throughout the park. Restrooms and showers were kept clean. I would not recommend this place for big rigs. There are some tight squeezes and backing into some sites would be a challenge for the most experienced of RV'ers. But the sites are spacious and fairly private. We would stay here again.

It's not a bad park to stay at, but there are better options (in our opinion) in the area. The sites are close to each other and privacy isn't abundant. Some of the pull-throughs have trees that could cause some issues when pulling out of the spot. The road to the campground is certainly manageable if you take your time. Firewood is available for sale, but if you can find it elsewhere, go with that option. We bought three bundles and found each bundle was made up with rotted wood that had since dried, but didn't burn well. Considering the smoke around the grounds, I think most firewood bundles had this problem. Quiet hours state they start at 10pm, but don't expect that to be adhered to. Plus, enforcement of quiet hours isn't a priority of the staff. That said, they do focus on family friendly activities, and the pool was very clean. We would stay here again, if other options were not available, and during off-peak times.
