Very nice campground with easy access to our level rock site. interior roads are in excellent shape. Approximately 2 miles to Mt Airy and around 12 to Pilot Mountain. Office staff was friendly and informative. We will definitely return and may choose this area over Ashville next time we are in the mountains. The view from the summit of Pilot Mountain is gorgeous and worth the drive. Utilities worked fine as well as the wifi. Park is Good Sam's and Passport America.

I usually don't care for KOA because the ones we've stayed at just don't seem to be a good value for what you get which is usually tight sights and unusable wifi. This KOA is one of the two exceptions we've see. This is the 2nd best KOA that we've stayed in. We had a site escort which always starts things off right. Roads are a little tight in certain spots but nothing that is a problem. Interior roads are in good shape. We had a level, gravel site with plenty of mowed grass in between sites. They also have a nice play area for the dogs. The wifi actually worked. We will stay here again when passing through Indiana.

We enjoyed our stay here . Quiet, adult park. Large, grassy, level site. Escorted to site which is always helpful. Fire rings and picnic tables. Approximately 2 miles from the craziness of The Dells. Not really a kid friendly park. Mostly adults and it's nice and quiet. Plenty of room between adjacent sites. Our wifi worked well for the most part. We would choose this park again.

Very busy campground that seems to run itself. Never saw an employee other than in the office. If you can score a lakefront site, you'll be in heaven. The sites are clean and ours was level. Wifi was not good. The campground needs to have the random litter picked up near the woods. Sites are spacious. The location is the big draw here. The campground if it was located anywhere else would probably get a 7. Roads need to be regraveled or paved because of standing water and potholes. We were able to get a satellite signal. We loved it. Your GPS will probably steer you wrong. If your coming from the east on hwy. 28, keep heading west. DO NOT GO EAST. After coming through Munising, you'll drive up a hill and see a Holiday Inn Express on the right. The campground is approximately a 1/4 mile past the Holiday Inn on the right. The green sign blends in and is set too far off the road. Just keep a watchful eye after the Holiday Inn and you'll be fine. These are directions coming from the EAST.

Beautiful park. This is some kind of membership park. Most of the lake sites were taken with seasonal or airstream rentals. I think most of the transients are placed on the "Ridge" or "Plateau" sites. We were in the "Plateau" sites and we were pleased. Sites are spaced nicely with a nice green space in between the roads. Friendly employees and a nicely managed park. Only negative, as usual is the wifi. Great place to walk or jog.

We had a pull thru full hookup site. Site was level for the most part. Water pressure was a little low, 50 amp electric was fine. Cable was snowy. We could not get satellite but we knew this going in. Wifi is horrible. The one time I was able to connect it was 4:30 am. No excuse for sorry wifi these days. Our site was mostly dirt although not all sites are like this. Friendly staff. some pull thrus looked better than ours. My neighbor had to back out of his pull through site to avoid hitting a tree. I would avoid the pull thrus in the row numbered in the 40's unless it was at the end of the row. There are 2 small dog runs. Park is in a good location for a base camp. The ferries provide shuttles that will pick you up at the campground.

Be careful of GPS directions in this location. Thankful I called the office and asked about directions. She told us not to take Compton Rd. We rode it in the car later and it is horrible. We turned on Bull Run Post Office Rd off of Hwy 29 and it isn't any fun in a large RV but doable. Main problem is it's very narrow. Once you get into the park, the roads are fine. We loved the campground. Sites are private and shaded.

Easy in/out, friendly employees, great on site restaurant (open thur/fri/sat at 3:30 ) Park would be a 10 if it had paved sites and internet. There is some noise from I-95. We will say here again.

Wow, Wow, Wow! This is a great campground! It has everything we love in a park and is one of the few places that deserves to have resort in its name. It is a pretty place with level concrete sites and patio. Lush green grass and landscaping are everywhere. First place we've ever seen that you can wash your rig! There's a nice pool and a bark park for your dog. We have a 43 foot motorhome and husband didn't have any issues getting into our site. We appreciate the previous reviewer's comments about the faucets and exiting the campground. The staff did tell us also and we haven't had any problems. The staff gave us a paper with directions to connect my IPad. I followed it exactly and have had no problems. It works great and I haven't been kicked off once. I can't wait to let my motorhome buddies about this place! I would call ahead if I were traveling during snowbird season and make a reservation.

Rate is Passport America. Park is easy to get to from I-40. GPS tried to tell us we were going to make a U-turn but that is wrong. Entrance is a left turn from 40 straight into the park. We had a gravel level site on row G with a view of the stream. Everything worked fine except the Wi-Fi. We would stay here again but would inquire about the 3 or 4 sites with the concrete patios. Those sites were very nice with a big grassy front on the stream. I imagine the only negative on those sites might be some day noise from the lumber mill but certainly nothing that was intolerable. We didn't notice the sites until after we were already set up. We would stay here even if one of the patio sites wasn't available. Our site was a little short for our 43 ft and tow but workable. Approximately 4-5miles to Maggie Valley and 20 to Cherokee.

Easy in/out. This was a place for us to park while we spent time in Seiverville and Pigeon Forge. Sites were gravel and level. Utilities worked well. Large grassy areas to walk the dogs. We appreciated the fair price to stay. Only negative for us is they don't allow dog enclosures and there's no bark park. We enjoy sitting outside with the pups in the evening and we couldn't do that here.

Glad I read previous review regarding which exit to take. GPS said to use 264. Previous reviewer said exit 257. I called office and he said to use exit 269 from 81 southbound. Use exit 257 if northbound. Exit 264 will take you through town with tight turns. Campground is easy to find. The entry drive to the campground is gorgeous . The office is up a hill but we didn't have any trouble. Check-in was quick and friendly, and we were escorted to our site. We opted to pay for one night and extend if we liked it. We did and extended for 2 more nights. We requested a level, satellite-friendly site. Our site was level for the most part and our friend's was not. Sites and roads are gravel. They are up a steep road but we had no problem in our 43 foot with tow attached. Wi-Fi worked well most of the time. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Campground is terraced with pretty stone in between sites. We enjoyed seeing deer a couple of times. There's an Italian restaurant that delivers to the campground, otherwise it's a short drive to a decent home cooking restaurant and also a good Mexican restaurant. This campground would be a 10 if there were more level sites and either cable or more satellite access. My friends were only able to receive 3 local air channels. They honor Passport America for one night. Not a bad home base to see the area. We drove to Luray Caverns and Skyline drive. Highly recommend both. I would stay here again.

This place is okay if all you expect is a level place to park, decent water pressure and 50 amp service. WiFi is awful. If you do get it, it's super slow. You only have free access for 2 hours a day. There's pick up and delivery from the train station during the week. Very nice. Check in was chaotic. It was Labor Day weekend and the entrance was jammed. If you've got a big rig be careful upon entering between a large boulder on one side and the key gate on the other. No site escort. They should require the seasonal places to pressure wash and keep their places tidy. They are awful and gives the place a "hood" feel. I even saw a guy looking for bottles and cans in the dumpsters the first couple of days. Sites are grass, dirt and gravel. Roads are mainly dirt and gravel. The grass we do have needs mowing. An employee came out with a weed eater and cut a few weeds on the site next to us and left. The other sites and the dog area (about a foot tall in places) remained untouched. Tons of kids and roving teens while we were there. Cars parked everywhere. Some sites had 4 and 5 cars. Too crowded. The place did thin out after the holiday weekend and might be okay for a couple of days if you're just looking for a place to stay while visiting the city. Just don't expect too much.

We enjoyed our stay at this park. It was clean and quiet. Our sites were gravel and level. All utilities were great. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Nice amenities, especially for such a remote area. WiFi service is the best we've had in a campground. Super clean bathrooms. Nice arcade with a pool table. Clean laundry room. We will stay here again if in the area. If you want to see a beautiful sight, get up before dawn and look at the sky. It's so dark that it looks like you can reach up and touch the stars.

"Big Rig" paved sites are too short. We gave them length of rig when we made reservation. There was not enough room for RV and tow vehicle. Sites are too narrow. This is basically a paved parking lot with service and no shade. We did not stay and they did not refund deposit.
