As previously mentioned, there have been many improvements. Unfortunately, it is becoming a trailer park rather than a campground. At an informational meeting, we were told they began offering extended stay for people needing medical attention in the area. Now, there are people living there, including families with multiple children. Those people are allowed to select the site they want for the duration which leaves very little for the actual campers. Great area, pretty park, friendly workers--difficult to get a site to fit your rig. Our cost was for the 50 amp service.

There have been some improvements in the park recently, specifically, concrete pads in some sites. The problem is the approaches to these sites is soft sand, so when it rains, getting in and out is incredible difficult. The roads are abysmal at best. Major washouts which are simply left. A very nice clubhouse, but campers are not allowed to use it. Instead, it is rented for weddings, etc. and permanently set up for such venues. Consequently, it is simply a place to park an RV and stay at one's own site. A disappointment. The sites have such a drop-off, picnic table is not useable, and not enough room to even sit in chairs outside.

The sites at this campground are wonderfully spacious and adequately level. Check in was easy and the employees very nice. The bathrooms must be the original ones making them dark, dank, smelly, and virtually unusable. Since this is a w/e only park, being able to use the restroom would be a plus. One of the major problems with this park is the road. There has been no repairs completed in a long time. It is very much like trying to drive through a mine field but you cannot be successful in missing the incredibly large holes. These do no even qualify as potholes they are so large. The other problem is people living here. While there is a limit to the number of nights one can stay, all you have to do is extend. These sites are trashy, with debris spilling out all around the rig. There is a gate, but it is left open at night for people to simply drive in. Could be a beautiful park, and it is close to Dallas. You would think a government owned park would be better maintained.

This is a lovely park, with lots of recent upgrades. It is not necessarily big rig friendly; short turning radius and trees make maneuvering difficult. The restrooms and office are clean; the sites are fairly clean. Young men clean sites only of large items, leaving cigarette butts, small pieces of debris scattered about. The office staff is friendly and helpful but the managers are rude to the guests and workers. To watch someone being criticized in front of paying guests is embarrassing for the camper as well as the worker. The only amenity is the pool so I think the cost is a bit high.

Road noise was terrible and the only way to stay in the park in a large rig was to be close to it. The way the sites are set up with hook-ups between rigs means you could literally hand things through windows to your neighbor. We heard our next door neighbors coughing during the night. I also agree with the lack of level sites, very difficult to carry enough blocking to level. Beautiful setting and proximity to White Mountain was great. But lack of sleep prevented us from getting the most out of our stay. We would not camp here again.

Since this is an older park, the sites are on the small size and difficult to maneuver. Unfortuantely, all the best sites are taken by annual campers. What is left are small and incredibly un-level. Very difficult to level a rig. The park would be more inviting if the annuals were in one section and the over-nighters in the remainder. Great location, easy access to the Williamsburg attractions. The workers were very friendly.

Lovely park with a quiet setting yet close to both Lexington and Winston-Salem. The park is hilly, so some sites are a bit un-level but there are multiple sites available. The check-in staff was not terribly helpful, but the outside works were wonderful and busy. They were in constant work mode cleaning the park for the season and improving it. Unfortunately, seasonal sites are allowed every where instead of being in one area and some of those are trashy looking. Otherwise, well kept park.

This was probably a beautiful park 30 years ago when it was built. It has numerous, large trees, and the sites are adequate size. However, it has No drainage. It rained on Friday night. We left on Wednesday there was still standing water in the sites. The roads have been built up so the water doesn't stay on them (other than the potholes) so the water has no place to go. We were told it had to evaporate. I can't imagine the mosquito problem in the summer with standing water everywhere. There were some sites completely under water. This caused everything to be a huge mess. Also, the bathrooms were closed from 9-12 for cleaning. Three hours to clean.

This is a tired park, with little evidence of maintenance being performed. The entrance is incredibly difficult to navigate because of a stone divider. There are large oak trees offering shade and was, at one time, a lovely setting. This is no longer true. Once in the park, the roads are in deplorable condition. I have owned a motorhome for over 30 years and have never been in park with roads a bad as these. I don't think they could be called pot holes since they go all the way across the road; great large holes in the road. Saw one man with a boat trailer he was having to jack up to get out because he had bottomed out. This place could cause some serious damage to a rig. This was not a pleasant experience.
Date of Stay: February, 2015
Permanent residents have debris outside everywhere, making the entire park look trashy. The roads are so narrow, it is difficult to navigate; however, they have not been made one way. We watched people having to back-up as they met opposing traffic. The store had virtually no product, the entire office looked like it was shutting down.

This park could be a very beautiful one, but there is no enforcement of the rules, creating unnecessary wear and tear on the grounds. Although there is a LONG list of rules, they are ignored and things such as no golf carts, become a joke. There are so many golf carts that run everywhere, it is difficult to walk. These carts also run on the grass, making permanent ruts, killing the grass. There are obviously numerous permanent RV's in the park, and those sites have become over run with 'stuff.' Multiple pot holes in the roads make traversing the park, an unpleasant experience. The lack of visible personnel, doesn't help with the enforcement of rules. Those who are visible, are not interested in helping the campers; they appear bored with their jobs and are are not communicative, even when asked questions. Check out is at 1:00, but being there for three days, certainly proved that was an ignored guideline. People leave as late as 6:00, and nothing is said to them, making it difficult for in-coming campers to find a spot.
Date of Stay: July, 2013
Incredibly large, shady sites, streets wide enough to make backing in fairly easy--there are no pull-through sites in the park. Activities all around the park for kids. Quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Friendly, knowledgeable staff, very willing to help make our stay a good one. Would stay here again if we are in the area.
Date of Stay: March, 2013
Terrible, jarring roads, could cause damage to rig if not careful. Sites were horribly un-level. Management is not visible; rules not enforced allowing campers to do whatever they want. Saw one site with 1 trailer, 3 cars, and 6 tents. Noise was obviously a problem. No control whatsoever and lack of caring on part of the workers. Bad, bad experience.
Date of Stay: February, 2013
Bath houses have not been available for over a year! Port-a-potties only and no showers available. Gate keepers are nice but challenged to do the job efficiently. Gates left up while attendants are in rigs, providing no security in park. Trees need trimming, brushes against side of rig while driving into and out of park.
