This is a campground not an rv park. Sites are wide and angled so you are not looking in another coach. Lots of trees and our site was level. Water pressure is good. Plus on this park is its distance to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge and beach. Wifi was good on our site.

Date of Stay:

Someone else said this was a work in progress. I think progress has stopped. They are building new cabins when they should be doing more in the rv sites. You must cross a ditch to get into sites and the culverts were not wide enough to make a turn with our coach. They had a storm just shortly before we arrived and it was very soft and tires sunk into ditch. It is just an open field with hookups. Privately owned by a young couple who were very nice. Cable reception was good.

Date of Stay:

Rate based on pay for 6 get 7th free. Showers were dated and enclosures were not private. Could use an upgrade. Park established in 1954 and is still owned by same family. They were all friendly and very helpful. Park is well maintained. Water pressure was terrible. Took several minutes to fill coffee pot using our Pur filter. Railroad track on one side busy road on other but we didn't find it to be a problem. Trains seem to be only during day and traffic slowed down in the evening. If in the area the water pressure would be the only thing to keep us from going back.

Date of Stay:

We were there to have our floors redone and this is the only place to stay overnight. Lot was so uneven we never got the coach level. Pretty wooded lots on Lake Reidsville. Campgrounds is in the city park. We would only return if we were to have more work done on coach.

Date of Stay:

It's on the beach. If you want sand, sun, and ocean this works. Site was very uneven and couldn't level with jacks. Some motor homes were well off their wheels to try to level. Restrooms were not private. No place to hang clothes, towel or to put soap and shampoo. I gave it a poor rating mostly because we were across from an over flowing dumpster and the shower situation. Didn't check the laundry. You must check in at the hotel and our coach would not fit in the entry so we parked in the RV park and walked back to hotel to check in.

We've stayed here before because it's convenient to Crystal River. This time we requested a site on the lower level and it was okay but not level. It is a very wooded and rustic park but with nice pool, showers and laundry. Cable was provided but picture was very fuzzy on our high-def TV. Husband loves showers as they are individual complete bathrooms. Water pressure was good.

Date of Stay:

We spent the winter here and chose it because it is 2 miles to the beach. Park is old and not built for large motor homes. "Sardines in a can" comes to mind. Neighbors felt it was okay to sit their chairs under our window awnings to get out of the sun. Cable blacks out daily. Water pressure is terrible. Had wifi in park when we arrived but park discontinued it. You must go to clubhouse to use it. Manager is very unfriendly. Restrooms/showers are clean but there is no set time when they clean so you don't know until you go over if you'll be able to use. Laundry is by card that has a $10.00 minimum. Cost of a wash/dry is 3.00 so if you do 3 loads they get an extra $1.00 from you. Lawn service mowed when we first arrived but were careless about trimming. They only showed up every 2-3 weeks later in stay but weeds and grass continued to grow. We have weeds growing around our tires and steps. We arrived before our neighbors so didn't have a problem parking but they had to move their truck and flowers before we could pull out. Will not return.

This is our third stay in this park. It is a very wooded, primitive camping style, with full hookups. Sites are grass, if you're lucky. It has rained almost non-stop since we arrived two days ago and we must walk through muddy sand to get to the car. There are a lot of full time residence now and it's beginning to look a little junky. We were here this time two years ago and were almost the only ones on the upper level. Restrooms/showers are wonderful. There are 6 individual shower, sink with mirror and stool in the building. The downside, if the park was full, is the fact that there are only two buildings(one on each level). We return here every year for appointments and to visit friends. I think we'll try someplace different next year. Nightly fee was Passport America.

This was our second stay at this park. First, 1 1/2 years ago was pleasant. In the first hour we were given 3 different sites. No. 104 to narrow (between lightpost & row of shrubs) to fit our 41 ft. class A. Also not a level spot on it. Site 106 we backed into, tried to level but even with boards could not level (front wheels were off the ground). Opened slides and started doing our home routine. Hubby comes back inside to say we don't have 50 amp. Site 79 had a concrete pad & patio so we went through routine again. Last thing we do is hook up cable tv. Guess what? No cable on this site. Since we had paid $80.00 deposit they came out and strung a cable three sites down to hook us up. When we arrived I told them we would be unable to stay the 7 days we'd planned. She said she would issue a credit for the remainder but she hadn't had a credit sale that day and she would have to wait until she had a sale to credit our account. This seemed very strange to me but I told her I would check back the next day. On the 4th day of our stay they had a sale and I received our credit. Still think this is strange. Used the laundry and was not happy with the condition of the washers. The rim around all 4 openings hadn't been cleaned in a very long time. There is no sink in laundry so couldn't clean myself. What we have discovered is they have sold most of the park to a developer and I think that is the area they are not doing any maintenance on. The park was 3/4 empty and we could have been assigned a site that is used in the winter for long term use. They are level, full concrete, look like newer electric boxes and probably have cable. We stay here because it is very close to relatives. If we stay again we will drive around, find a site and request that one. I advise you to do the same.

This is a state park, which we were happy to find would accommodate our coach and had full hook-ups. Park is very wooded with lovely live oaks, dripping with moss. The park is very tight getting into site, but trees are far enough from coach to accommodate our slides. Cable and Wi-Fi are excellent. Beach is just a short drive from park. There is a small IGA grocery on the island but would need a trip off island for something larger. Entrance fee for island was $10 for coach. Daily fees for car to come and go is $6. We would stay here again.

What can I say that is positive about this campground? Ladies at check-in were friendly. It's a very old park that needs some TLC. Lot was level except for large dip (from much rain) where front tires would sit. This is an Encore/Thousand Trails park which made me believe they don't have any standards that need to be met to maintain their membership. Our rate is Passport America, which is all I would ever pay to stay here. We had inches between our slide and a cluster of Live Oaks. Couldn't open storage so we could wash front window. Getting around trees wasn't a big problem but lanes inside park were very rutted from rains. Do not GPS coordinates. They will take you to a plantation. Ask for directions when you call for reservations. I wouldn't pay for cable either; it's worthless. Verizon MiFi did not work. Would not stay here again.

If you are looking for a small park, this one is not for you. It is huge, although just a short walk to the beach. Lots are just long enough for a big rig. They are very wide, enough room on both sides to park your towed and your neighbors have the same nice width. Some lots have nice concrete pads & patios. Ours (K5) did not and when it rained 3/4 of the space was ankle deep. Lot was relatively level. Fortunately we parked our car on the higher spot. Rate was based on a IRV2 Rally we attended. Husband used the showers 3 times; twice he didn't have hot water. The park is clean and they pick up trash every morning.

This is an older park, however, the very friendly owners have only owned it a year. The office is very nice, showers wonderful. It looks like they "inherited" some full time people that makes the park look run down. Several people who appear to work in the area as well. They have started working on things. e.g., wood on picnic tables are being replaced. Showers and office look new. Pool, although we didn't use, looked inviting. We were in a pull-through and it appears they keep these for people staying a short time. Nice crepe myrtle trees between each site. We would stay here again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

Lovely state park with nice roads and easy access to sites. They only have 3 full hook-up sites (No. 24, 25, 26). We stayed in 26. Call for reservation if you want one of these. The rest are typical state park sites. Ranger and assistant were very friendly. Enjoyed the quiet evening and would stay here again.

This is an older campground with lots of full time residents that look like they've been there a long time. Roads are rough with large traffic control bumps. When we set up, I found clothes and other items on the floor in the closet. Can't say they were friendly or unfriendly, they were present. Cable reception was good. Verizon hot spot did not work. We were only there one night and didn't use showers. Best thing it was close to I-70.
