This was a nostalgia stay for me. I had stayed here, in their small Cabins, back in the early 80's during a trip to the Syracuse Dirt Modified race. To my surprise the Campground was still there. We stayed here one night in a 30 amp, water, sewer back-in site that was right across the street from Lake Ontario. All the utilities worked well, including the WiFi. The staff was very friendly and helpful. While the Campground is small, mostly grass sites (level) it's big plus is it's location and the fantastic Sunsets across Lake Ontario. As another person mentioned, there is no beach or boardwalk, but there are a number of picnic tables across the street along the shore at an Ice Cream Stand and grass areas to take your own chairs to watch the sun set. We will return in the future.

We stayed here for 3 nights to visit Niagra Falls. While this Campground has a lot of amenities/activities for kids it fell short of my expectations based on the $91 dollar a night rate. Here are my cons: The water and electric were at the front of the sites so had to park my coach right at the roads edge. While the CG has WiFi do not expect to use it. It has a strong RF (4/5 bars) but virtually no bandwidth. The sites are stone but the base is apparently not very deep since my rear jack pads sunk 5 inches into the ground after we had rain the first night. I ended up having to go to a local ACE hardware store to purchase 4 - 2 foot 2X8's to put under my rear leveling pads. As I said, this is a great kid/family activity CG, but at the nightly rate they charged I would expect a few 'adult' amenties like WiFi that worked so I could research the area attractions and the rest of my trip, utilities in an appropriate location (mid or back of the site) and a site that my coach doesn't sink into the ground after it rains. If I return to the Niagara area in the future I will try another campground.

This was an over night stop for us so I requested a pull-thru so I wouldn't have to disconnect my toad. The pull thru sites are up on a hill over looking the camp sites below. The sites were very long, level, stone and among mature trees with lots of shade. While the pull thru certainly could accommodate my RV and toad, the connections were at the rear of the site so I had to disconnect the car and park it in front. The 50amp was good but the water pressure was only 20 psi when I connected. During the evening and mornings, when others were using the water, there pressure was terrible. Some of the inner roads were paved, some stone and the stone roads were not very dusty. We'd stay here again but probably use our own water and pump.

This is a great campground. Clean CG, paved inner roads, stone sites, great water pressure, great WiFi, 3 sewer connects at our site, good 50 amp. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We certainly will stay here again if in the area. The only con was the CG exit, it comes out on a curve in the road so it is had to see on coming traffic in either direction. One of the staff people drove his golf cart up to the exit and stood across the street to wave us out when it was clear .... like I said Great Staff!

We stayed for a single night on our way to Almond, NC. It is very convenient from exit 60 on I-26. The staff were friendly and it was a good campground for an overnight. We had good 50 amp service, good water pressure and sewer. The site was a pull thru and long enough for out 35 foot and Toad, but not too level front to back (front low). My complaint is the dusty inner roads. Unfortunately, we have a DP with a rear radiator so the fan, even at idle just sucks up the dusty blows it through the radiator and all over my TOAD and the back of my RV. It is the dusty roads that would keep me from returning here. My rate is a Passport America discount rate.

We stayed here on our way home just as a place to relax and to check this campground out. This campground is a gem. A regional park that has huge, level, pull through sites. Our site was 90 foot long, great full hookups, 50 amp, and free Wi-Fi that worked well. The sites have a small concrete pad on the door side, a picnic table, and a nice natural wooded buffer between the sites. The place was quiet, except for a couple who ran a couple 2 cycle mini scooters with seats on them that made a lot of noise. I didn’t blame the campground for the noise, but the scooter owners for their lack of consideration for other campers. The main road into the park is paved, but the roads to access the campground and its sites were hard packed sand and looked to have recently been graded. They were relatively smooth, and campers were respectful of the speed limits so there was no dust. This campground is part of a regional/county park and offers a couple of fresh water lakes for fishing and one has a sandy beach for swimming, and there is also a boat ramp on a saltwater river that lead to the ocean. We absolutely enjoyed just relaxing at this campground and taking walks to the lakes and boat launch. This campground was only 50 miles from our home so it will be a place we will return to for those relaxation trips to just get away. The access from RT 95 is very easy. The staff was friendly, registration was quick and with the long pull-throughs, this is also a great place to stop just for a night while traveling to or from Florida. We will definitely return.

The KOA was nice. The sites were fairly level, at least the camper portion. The staff was friendly, and the registration process was quick, and we were escorted to our site by staff – even though it was raining heavily. Our particular pull through was level pulling in and where the camper was, but dropped off a bit to the exit road side. Because of the angle of my truck to the 5th wheel it was a little more difficult to unhitch. The campground area we were in was wooded and mostly pull-thourghs, full hookup, 50 amp sites. The campground was pretty quiet unlike what I heard about many of the ocean front campgrounds in Myrtle Beach. The Wi-Fi was great; best I have had at a campground so far. We were visiting Myrtle Beach to visit relatives, shop, and see a show at the Carolina Orpy, so not being right along the ocean was great for us – much less noise and traffic. Even on a slight angle I had no problem hitching or getting out of our site. The campground had a number of older camp models for rent and cabins (no facilities). We would stay here again.

We stopped at James River for 2 nights on our way to Myrtle Beach. The campground was great, the sites were a good size and with a nice buffer between the sites. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The inner site access roads were paved and wide enough to handle big rigs. We used the campground's shuttle service into Charleston’s Visitors Center which was very convenient and reasonable at $10 per person round trip. The shuttle driver was a campground Work Kamp resident and was very friendly and informative. This is a wonderful Campground to stay at to visit Charleston or just relax. Wi-Fi was good. We stayed in a full hookup, 50 amp, pull-through site. We will return again and stay longer next time.
