Conveniently located just a few miles off of I-95, Aces High RV Park appears to aim for a clientele with few or no children and/or those touring the historic attractions in the area. Office staff is efficient. Interior roads are gravel and there is plenty of room. There is a generous mix of roomy pull-through and back-in sites, all of which are level. Those sites with any significant shade are generally located around the perimeter of the park and will likely be occupied by seasonal campers. Utility hook-ups are sturdy and up-to-date. All grass is mowed/trimmed and shrubs as well. There is no litter of any kind on the grounds, but our fire pit had not been cleaned from the previous occupant. This was surprising considering the cost of a site here. The pool is small and hours of operation are only 9 to 5. The campground store has little in the way of groceries but much in the way of RV supplies and gadgets; there is a small area within for making coffee or tea. WiFi signal is good. It is very quiet here. Rater reflects two in our party at a waterfront site. We would stay here again.

The vast majority of campers here are seasonal but for transients, Ft. Getty Park provides an inexpensive alternative to private campgrounds or difficult to reserve state parks in this area of Rhode Island. The campground occupies the top of a knoll at the mouth of the bay, and to reach it one must pass through Jamestown itself. This will pose no problem to any but the largest rigs. Interior roads are paved and easy to negotiate. All sites are treeless, grass back-ins roughly 25' wide by 60' deep, laid out in rows, with nothing to separate you from your neighbor. Hook-ups are water & electric only; water connections for some sites will require 40 or more feet of hose. There are no amenities of any kind. Restroom and shower facilities are old but clean enough to be useable (we did not). A dump station is available at the park exit. There was no debris or trash of any kind on the grounds. Our mid-week stay was quiet however I think weekends may be less so. As a base for touring the area, it is adequate. We would stay here again.

There are many reasons this franchisee has earned consistent awards from several RV-affiliated organizations, but well-manicured grounds has nothing to do with it - here it is all about service. Campground is easy to find. Access and interior roads are gravel and in good condition. Check-in was swift as the office staff very personable and efficient. Grounds are clean as well as bathrooms, shower facilities & laundry. The store is well stocked with food items and supplies. Sites range from primitive to full hook-ups and will have been raked prior to check-in. It is very quiet. The sites are rustic, with a wide variety of shapes and sizes owing to the topography. Our site was of adequate size with just a bit of a slope. Utility hook-ups easily accessible and in very good condition. There is a small heated pool and plenty of other amenities. Cell service & WiFi can be spotty. We would definitely stay here again. Rate reflects two in our party and KOA card discount.

As noted in previous reviews, this campground is a bit of a drive from I-84, however the roads are more than adequate and it is a pleasant drive. This facility is oriented toward families and in spite of heavy usage is acceptably clean and relatively quiet. Management is efficient and clearly visible in day-to-day operations. Campground store is adequate for groceries but souvenir items prevail. Individual sites run the entire spectrum from shadeless, gravel, back-in parking spots to large, shaded pull-throughs with plenty of room between units. All but a few of the sites are reasonably level. Utility hook-ups in our site were in need of repair but useable. There are two main areas for the sites. The loop we were in had a narrow interior road and campers who do not park tow vehicles completely within their site can make navigating tricky. The second main loop is clearly designed for larger units with a wider road and larger sites. WiFi was initially slow to connect, but was satisfactory after that. There was a recurring problem with power outages the afternoon of our second day, but was resolved by evening. Sewer at our site drained very slowly; we had to use the dump station to finish emptying our tanks. Rate reflects two in our party and VKR discount. We would stay here again.

Easy access from Rt. 14 and/or Ohio Turnpike. Check-in was speedy; the young lady behind the counter could not have been more than 13 years old but was extremely professional and courteous. Interior roads are mostly gravel, in decent condition and easily navigable. Hookups logically placed and in good condition. Lots of amenities. There is a fair proportion of seasonal units - all but a few were very well-kept. Sites for transients don't have as much shade. We arrived after a severe thunderstorm. Our site was a bit swampy owing to this but improved as it dried out. We would stay here again. Rate reflects three in our party & VKR discount program.

We discovered this campground thanks to the federal government shutdown. The cons: The approach to the park is not for the faint of heart. The 1.5 mile road to Tanglewood is a dirt road which begins solid and well-maintained. The final half-mile is easily a 14% grade and here the road is loose pebbles and gravel; we needed 4WD to finish the ascent. No sites have sewer hookups. The pros: The campground is well-maintained. Mature trees provide at least partial shade to most sites. Sites for transient campers number about 35 and are gravel/grass, generally level and vary in size. Interior roads are gravel and easily navigable. The park is 40 years old, but the electrical service and water hookups are much more recent. Restroom/shower facilities are “rustic” but clean and well-kept. Dump station is easily accessible. Owner/manager very personable. Campground store is well-stocked and has a small dining area. The setting is beautiful. The campground occupies the top of a ridge overlooking a large pond. About two-thirds of the park is seasonal sites. They are grouped together and for the most part are generally neatly kept. It’s quiet, but there are activities and facilities for families. If you need to get away where nobody can find you, this is the place. We will camp here again.

This park is among the most convenient to downtown Atlanta. It is very large and will accommodate all sizes of RV’s. Getting to the park can be a bit confusing but the access roads are good. You are charged a $10 parking fee before proceeding to the campground. Check in was easy and fast; office staff was businesslike but efficient and courteous. With the exception of the sites in the loop around the office and pool, all sites are well-shaded, gravel/stone, and level. Good utility hookups. Many sites have a deck and a gas grill. Bath and shower facilities were relatively modern and tolerably clean given that it was the July 4th holiday and usage was heavy. Campground personnel keep the grounds clean and pick up trash on a set schedule. Free shuttle service is available to the attraction area of Stone Mountain Park. For those who visit during the hot summer months, I’ll suggest the use of a meter to keep tabs on the voltage to your rig, as the heavy demand created by A/C units taxed the capacity of their electrical system. Rate reflects cost of stay over a holiday. We would stay here again.

This is a nice park although the layout indicates it is an older campground. Most sites in the front are somewhat small and graded out of the hillside, sometimes making leveling difficult. Sites in the back of the campground are a bit larger but still on a slope. Some interior roads are narrow. Management keeps it clean and there were no noise issues of any kind. Restroom & shower facilities very clean. Well-stocked store. We would stay here again. Base rate of $40 is for two adults only and reflects KOA discount. Extra persons are $3 each.

The sole reason to stay at this campground is if you plan to visit to pan for gold or gemstones. Interior access roads are rough, narrow, and checking in requires you to double back to the entrance. All RV sites have full hook-ups. They are grass/gravel, back-ins, unlevel, and not very long. Little to no shade. There is no litter on the grounds but the grass was not recently cut nor had any trimming been done. Office staff very friendly both on the phone and in person. No amenities of any kind and no Internet access. Quiet – yes.

If you are looking for peace & quiet, Skidaway Island State Park is the place. Even over the July 4 holiday this park had many empty sites. All sites are large, sandy, level pull-throughs with a substantial canopy of trees so there is nearly full shade all day. Each site has a fire pit and a raised platform for the picnic table. Good utility hookups. No issues with insects other than mosquitoes - typical for the locale. As noted in earlier reviews the interior roads are a bit narrow but easily navigable so long as you take your time. Office staff very friendly and helpful both in person and on the phone. Restroom and shower facilities very clean and look to be relatively new. The park pool was closed; the sign said "due to budget cuts." We prefer full hookup sites but we'd gladly stay here again. A good value for the money.

This park puts most privately-owned campgrounds to shame! Paved interior roads, level and spacious gravel sites, all with at least partial shade. Utility hook-ups are solidly built and intelligently placed. Shrubs & trees shield your site from your neighbor. The park is clean and the buildings are well-kept. Restrooms and showers very modern and clean. A long list of scheduled activities and access to recreation areas in the park. In spite of being nearly 100% occupied the campground is quiet. Office staff very personable and helpful. This should be your campground of choice in the Charleston area.

This is not a destination campground. I would like to give this park a higher rating since the owner/office staff were exceptionally pleasant and accommodating. This park is old and needs updating and maintenance. Buildings are in need of paint and renovation. Many level, pull-through sites (all gravel) make this a good place for an overnight without unhooking. We were given a site with lots of shade - not true of all sites. Grounds are clean but restrooms/showers could stand a thorough scrubbing. Rating would have been higher except for road noise from I-95, spotty Wi-Fi, and we woke up in the morning to find the sewer had backed up and flooded several sites, including ours. Campground staff was on it very quickly and apologized for the inconvenience. Still, we would overnight here again.

This is a neat little park but is hampered by small sites in most of the campground. Four of the five loops are pull-throughs. The fifth loop has some back-in sites that will accommodate an RV longer than 35 feet. Sites are paved, close to each other, and most are not level. Nice wooded setting and most sites are shaded all or most of the day. Grounds and facilities are clean. It was quiet at all hours. Office staff very friendly and helpful. Pool and restroom facilities were not the most modern but were very clean. We would stay here again but in a site that was a bit more level. Rate reflects 3rd person in our party.

Rate reflects KOA Value Card discount. This was our first time at this park and we will definitely return. Sites are spacious, allowing you to keep a fire at a reasonable distance from your RV. Some sites more shaded than others; all are crushed stone. Drainage is good. The entire grounds are immaculately clean as are all other facilities & bathhouses/showers/restrooms. Two pools, each with a water slide and a small amusement park area featuring a carousel, ferris wheel, mini-golf and more. On-site restaurant plus rec hall, arcade, fitness center, arts/crafts area. This rating would have been a 10 but the one & only negative was a long wait for check-in; the counter person was alone and involved in a phone call with somebody making a reservation. Help did not arrive until the last moment and took the person behind me in line.

We stayed at this campground over the recent Thanksgiving holiday. To my great surprise staff was in the office and on duty on the grounds when we arrived on Thanksgiving Day. Staff was very helpful and courteous. In spite of how full the campground was it was very quiet – there is more background noise from nearby roads and the railroad but we did not find that to be offensive. There is no “woodsy” ambiance, rather the feeling is more like a residential neighborhood with regular rows of sites. The grounds are very neatly kept and litter-free. Campground staff patrol regularly. There is a pool but it is located near the entrance to the campground, well away from the vast majority of campsites. All sites are level; many are pull throughs and many have a concrete pad. Grassy sites are available, too. Most sites have at least a little shade for a portion of the day. The size of individual sites can vary; some are on the small side. The majority are moderately spacious unless you have a site on the end of a row – these sites have the most “elbow room.” If you want to have a campfire you must rent a free-standing fire pit from the office. The bathhouses are very nice – modern, well-appointed and relatively clean considering the heavy use they saw over the weekend. The campground store does not have much in the way of groceries but there are so many local places to get food that this is not an issue. Rate reflects total of six in my party. My only issues with this campground were 1) the Wi-Fi – free, but difficult to get a connection and very slow speed once you are connected, and 2) speed bumps every 50 yards on the main thoroughfare.
