One of the nicest KOA campgrounds. The staff are very friendly and always helpful. A great destination campground in the heart of Myrtle Beach but secluded enough to feel like your in a park. Follow GPS directions if coming from the North (Hwy 17) or West (Hwy 501). From the south, turn left at the 6th St light, then right on Oak st at the stop sign, then left on 5th. Otherwise you will never get turned left on 5th (no light) during the summer. We arrived just before closing and were escorted to our campsite. We had made our reservations on-line but called and had our site changed. The web site has somewhat brief/confusing site descriptions, so I would recommend calling the CG office prior to arrival. Easy to back in with some assistance. The sites are adequately spaced, and there's ample shade. We had a gravel back-in site (most others are pine needles) which we like given we park for the week and don't require the pull-through convenience. Each gravel site has a grill, picnic table, and fire-pit ring (they NO longer require a deposit to get a ring). All connections were on the back left within easy reach. Water pressure is good. We didn't use our satellite dish since there was cable. They have not upgraded to HD yet and reception is somewhat poor on several channels. The CG was full all weekend, most of the following week and then again the 2nd weekend. However, they could have planned better for the crowds and had the restrooms serviced more frequently (soap dispensers empty, trash bins running over, no TP). Since we rarely use the CG restrooms it wasn't an issue but worth noting if you were using a tent or cabin. They have nice laundry facilities (10 washers/dryers) but not sized appropriate for the 500 site campground, especially when full. Add to this almost half were "out of order" the ENTIRE week. (Called the office, they said "parts are on order"). The CG is an easy walk or bike ride to the beach. The also offer a shuttle to/from the beach. We rented a golf cart for the week. (Recommend Best Golf carts or Graham). Pool and splash park are really nice, especially if you have young kids. We used the pool and it was not overly crowded and the right temperature. Who knew pirates had so much fun? On Saturday afternoon the staff decorated the wagon and went throughout the park "looking for pirates" with as many kids as would fit on the wagon. Other staff member appeared to be stationed around the park with water guns and would try to soak the kids on the wagon who, of course, also had water guns. When this was over they had a staff member in a dunk tank that the kids could throw a ball (age-distance-appropriate) to try and dunk the staff member. He was fantastic with the kids and made it a hilarious show as a spectator. KUDOS to whomever thought of this event. Overall we give this campground very high ratings.

Stayed in KOA section over the 4th. Nice campground with lots to do. We had planned on going to Brookville Lake but decided instead to stay at the campground. There's a 3 mile bike / running path also. One negative is that while they do advertise they sell propane, they do so only between 8:30-9:30 AM. Quite odd.

We considered this KOA when staying in Florida for a month. However, this is not a great location nor a resort atmosphere. The roads into the park take you through an industrial area that is not visually appealing. The entrance to the park is nice but then many of the camp sites back up to the back lots of the industrial park. The sites are very close together. There are several cabins towards the back. On the positive side, there are several spots along the river/bay side. A few did have cement pads and patios. We wouldn't stay here.

This was an overnight stop on our way to Florida . We typically would stay at the KOA in Valdosta, but it has closed. We quickly found a spot and were able to pull through and not unhook. The office staff was quite friendly and helpful. The park is an easy on/off from I-75.

This is a nice park. We had a "super" site which is cement pad with patio. The campground is really 3 campgrounds in one. Most sites are grass but it appears all have full hook ups. The workout room is nice. If you are interested in the work out room, I recommend staying in the Oaks park. The highway is close so we did notice some noise but not a significant concern. Lots of activities if you're interested.

This is a very nice park. Appears to be mostly frequented by purchasers from Lazydays. However, there are other campers here also. The park is well maintained with all paved sites. We had no issues with setting up our satellite, awnings, or slides-outs. We did have difficulty connecting to WiFi. The rate includes breakfast and lunch. The CG has security at night. The only drawback of this campground is they do not have a workout facility.

7/29/2013 Disney Fort Wilderness Campgrounds. Stayed at the campground for 5 nights while touring Disney. Originally, had planned on staying at another area CG, but changed our plans to be in-park. A great decision. There's many benefits to being in park including Disney Transportation and early park hours -- we took advantage of both. Disney provides transportation within the campground to the Depot, then park transportation from there. There are also ferry boats that run between the campgrounds and Magic Kingdom, The Contemporary, and Wilderness Lodge. Park busses run about every 20 minutes, ferry boats vary from 10 mins to 30 (the ferry to Magic Kingdom is the quickest way to the park). The campground busses will pick you up at the entrance to your section and drop you off at the Depot for the ferry boats. Note there are three Depots on the campground property -- Outpost( Bus Transportation), Settlement (Store and Ferry Transportation, and Meadow Store & Restaurants). We were in section 300 which is walkable to the ferry boats. Due to the heavy rains, there was significant standing water which lead to Mosquitos. (Reason for the 9 rating). Next time we will request a site not in the 300-400 range. However, our site -- "preferred" -- was fine with lots of shade and backing up to the creek. The utilities are located in the center of the site which may require a bit of maneuvering if you have slide outs. We decided we would upgrade to a premium site next time with the extra cement pad to avoid tacking in the sand to our RV. The facilities are what you would expect from a Disney park. They have a large pool, but we didn't use it on this trip. Rate includes $5/day pet fee.

Stayed here as an overnight stop returning from Florida. Our GPS took us right to the campground. We didn't have reservations and were somewhat skeptical based on some online reviews. However, it was perfect for our overnight needs, close to the interstate, pull through sites (long enough we didn't have to unhook), and very friendly staff. We arrived well after the office closed, but as I was looking at the map, the office light comes on and the manager opens the door and asks if we are needing a site. The office is new and has a well stocked camp store also. We found our site easily and was hooked up in short-order with no adjustments to level needed. There are shaded and open sites. The roads are paved and the sites gravel. There's no grass between the pull thru sites, but that didn't matter to us given the short overnight stop. There are comments relating to the noise from the highway, we did notice it, but, from inside a modern RV, is not an issue. Our rate includes VKR discount.

This is a nice campground and well maintained. It's close to Disney theme parks and other attractions. The campground is more "urban" than most KOA campgrounds and sits just off 192. The pool and hot tub are well maintained and the park, overall, is well kept. We stayed here for 3 nights prior to moving to Disney Worlds Campground. I didn't see any shuttle buses from the park, but I didn't ask as we wanted to be "on-property".

This is one of the nicest KOA kampgrounds you'll find. The sites (we had full hook-up, pull through) are adequately spaced and most are shaded. Our site was level and easy to pull into without any problems. The pool and adjacent splash pad are very nice and sized appropriately for the campground. There's 24/7 security at the entrance for added safety. While golf carts are permitted, we didn't see any reckless driving or issues. The CG is about 4 blocks from the beach, the shuttle takes you within approximately 2 blocks. It's an easy walk or bike ride. I didn't rate the cg a 10 because of the internet service. They use Tengointernet which is notoriously bad and this campground is not different. The band width is woefully under-powered to handle the modern day demand. As a result, most online responses drop to a dreadful crawl after 8 am and almost stop in the evenings. If this wasn't bad enough, even our ATT 4G (no LTE service in Myrtle Beach yet) service was disappointingly slow anywhere around downtown (assume due to the seasonal high traffic?). Finally, I have no idea what the MB rules are for Golf cart parking at the public access sites. Even after calling and being transferred 3 times then going to the police station and asking, I never got a definitive answer. We would definitely return.

We stayed here as a late stop-over enroute to Myrtle Beach. The campground is easy to get to from the I-40. It's definitely a stopover but appears adequate for a couple of nights or to stay if visiting attractions on the west side of Asheville. The sites are fairly close together and, we found some difficultly getting a site that we fit (front to back) so we didn't have to unhitch. The night security man assisted us to locate a more suitable site. The roads are gravel and, due to the sandy soil, I can see where rain would turn it into a soggy site. We were in a full pull through,and the back in sites appeared fine. There was only one site that appeared to be a worker camper with excessive clutter. They have a camp breakfast for $3 on Saturday which was nice.

Park is a mixture of permanent sites and overnight sites. However, DO NOT let that taint your view of this campground. The permanent sites are very very, well maintained as weekend resort cottages and are well kept. The overnight section is nicely kept and was easy enough for us to maneuver into our site. The sites aren't too close together, but the road is narrow in front so the issue would be if someone was parked on the adjacent spot in front of their camper it could make maneuvering into your spot more challenging. The campground is a short walk or bike ride (they also rent bikes) away. The only negative is the overnight "premium" sites do not have fire rings. They have "public" fire rings (3-4) for these sites. We had a wonderful time including swimming, fishing, golfing, getting ice cream, and just enjoying the Holland weather.

Absolutely the nicest state park campground. We had a full hookup site. It was easy to maneuver into and a quick hook up. There a plenty of trees in the campground section even though the park is a grassland park. We had bikes and took advantage of the miles of paths to ride. There are various club houses (I assume for rent, but didn't inquire). Getting to the park can be a bit tricky but just follow the website directions or signs off I-65 and its no problem. The staff was extremely friendly. Only issue is, since its a state park, there's no "late" check out. They have a standard Sunday late checkout, but nothing Mon-Sat. We absolutely would stay here again.

Cereland was formerly a private park that is now open to the public. The campground is very well maintained and is adjacent to the Softball Park and Fitness Center. The park is south/southeast of Columbus in a wooded setting. The sites are wide and easily accessible. While they do not offer WI-FI, we found both 3G (Verizon) and 3G & 4G (AT&T) service was good in the park. The park is beautiful in the fall complimenting the south Indiana countryside. They do not accept reservations, everything is first come – first serve, but we had no problem getting a site in October. Limited laundry facility (2 Washers and 4 Dryers) but was adequate for a quick uniform wash/dry. We couldn’t find a place in the park to purchase wood, but was referred to Lowe's about 9 minutes away which we picked up on a trip into Columbus. We highly recommend this park. One note, the water & electric box is at the back of the site, so an extension may be necessary.

Very nice park about 2 blocks from the beach. It’s an easy walk /bike ride or the campground offers a shuttle. The campground rents golf carts but are only allowed inside the park. We rented from Best Golf Carts so we could take it outside the park. The park is located near the heart of Myrtle Beach but you will never know it when you're in the campground. We looked at 5 parks last summer and this was far and away the best in distance between sites, facilities, and beach access (although there are some CG's with direct beach access the sites are packed together. No thanks!!). The main bath house appears new (<2 years) and was very clean with lots of room. Notables: fire rings are available for a $25 refundable deposit. Pool and splash pad are outstanding. Highly recommend you bring ant killer and spray around tires, jacks, stabilizers, hoses, anything that touches the ground. This will keep ants out of your RV. There a two sections. The upper section is nice and has cabins, back-in, pull through, and tent sites. This section is very shaded, although if you have a satellite you can request a site with no trees to obstruct your view. There are a few "park models" for overnight rental in this area, but they appear to be well maintained. The lower section (sites in the 300's) appears older and other than the few sites along the creek appear to be mostly semi-permanent. There are also several "stored" RV's in this section, many appears they've been stored for a long long time. It's too bad they've allowed the storage to detract from an otherwise outstanding park. I rated this park lower because of the Wi-Fi and their lack of restrictions on the types of dogs (pits bulls & Rottweiler’s). For the first two days we had persistent Wi-Fi issues. Despite calls to the TengoInternet help desk, emails to their support, the problems continued. It appeared to clear up by the end of day 2 then resurfaced on day 4. The turn-around time noted on Tengo's website is 24 hours, clearly unacceptable for broadband help desk. To be fair, TengoInternet manages the in-park network but the data service is through Horry County Telephone. Either one, or both: could have been source of the problem.
