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.

This is one of the best managed campgrounds we have seen. We spent a week here with our grandson who had a ball playing in the pool and meeting new friends on the nice playground. We had a large premium site that included a concrete patio with furniture ,grill, and fire pit. It was very long and level. Easy access from I 95. They also have a nice, clean dog park and an air conditioned fitness room. Our wi-fi connection and utilities were great.

Our site was pretty level with easy access for our 43 ft motorhome. There isn't a bathhouse so you need to be self contained. Wi-Fi worked most of the time. This is not a destination campground however it is in a great location if you're in the Raleigh area. There was a horse show going on the weekend we were here so the campground was almost full. No reservations, cash only, friendly staff. The campground was pretty quiet. The leash rule needs to be enforced. While walking my leashed dogs I had 4 incidences that other dogs ran up to mine. Two of the dogs scared the crap out of me. The poop clean up rule also needs to be enforced. I've never seen so many people not clean up after their dogs. Gross. Be a responsible pet owner so you don't ruin it for everyone else. We will stay here again.

This is a large campground with shaded sites in one area and a large grassy field with hook ups in the other. We wanted satellite friendly so we stayed in the grassy field. This entire field contained approximately 40 or so large sites that had all been mowed except for approximately 8 sites. Yes, they put us in a site with weeds up to our knees and 2 bags of garbage on our picnic table. Even though they had 50 amp service the breaker kicked within a couple of minutes of hook up. The wi-fi was excellent. The owners were the unfriendliest we've encountered. Rate reflects Passport America that she required in cash. We will not stay here again.

Very nice, clean, little park with the best wi-fi I've had in the last 20 campgrounds. The office personnel are both fantastic, being friendly and informative. We would definitely stay here again.

Rate reflects15% Texas Saver card. This is a free card found in a free copy of a 2013 RV Travel and Camping Guide for Texas. They also take Good SAM, but we liked the 15% better. We chose this campground because there just wasn't a lot of campgrounds with good reviews to choose from. This is a great campground. Gated, paved road, concrete sites, and lots of grass. Definitely big rig friendly. Historic Grapevine and a mall are close by. Grapevine has a lot of great restaurants. Only drawback at this time is the road construction going on around Dallas and Ft. Worth. Nothing to do with the campground, just something you may want to be aware of. It is horrendous getting around in a car. We are leaving early on a Sunday in the hope of avoiding some of the traffic.

Perfect location for visiting Glacier National Park. Satellite friendly sites were in a field. Roads are paved and most sites are shaded. Lady who owns the park is helpful and friendly as was the rest of the staff. Reservations and check-in was confusing at best. Staff didn't seem to know how to coordinate the different size RVs with the appropriate size sites. We saw small campers in large sites and big rigs that should have been in larger sites. I did peep in the bathrooms and they are dated, but absolutely spotless.

The access turn is a little tight for big rigs, so we unhooked our tow. Utilities worked well and sites are level. This is a place to park your rig and visit Bryce Canyon. It is not a destination campground. Our view in the front was some on site apartments and from the rear an unkempt home. Wi-Fi was awful. It would be nice if they could put a dog run on site as there is really not good place to walk the dog. We had to take ours to the neighboring hotel to find a little patch of grass. We had no problem with highway noise. Located right in town with short drive to restaurants.
