This used to be one of my favorite Rv Parks, but the train noise has gotten much-much-much worse. I'm not kidding, the first night I was awoken by about 15 times from trains blowing their horns multiple times. If it's going to be this noisy, I'm not going to pay $45 to hear that all night again. Full disclosure: the next few nights seemed okay, but then all the train noise started again for most of the rest of the nights. Also the barking dogs were ridiculous. I couldn't figure out if it was on premise or off, I figured it was off premise. There were about 3 to 5 different dogs barking throughout the night. Wifi was pretty darn good most of the time.

Awesome pool, hot tub, and work out room. The position of the water is ridiculous (all the way at the back of the site). Also, the light poles and street signs are way to close to the streets and in generally bad positions. We almost hit the street light simply backing our toad out of our site one morning. Rates are alittle on the strong side. The trash and recycling situation are also ridiculous. The trash location on their map is incorrect. The trash is not located near the recycling and vice versa. You have to bring your trash all the way through the neighborhoods on the other side of the park.

Nice staff and place, but it has a huge problem. It's the large commuter rail train tracks located only a few yards away. It is extremely loud because they blow their horn 5 or 6 times in a row, multiple times a day. Sometimes starting 4:45 AM'ish (maybe every hour or so after that) and it goes as late as 10:45 PM. A totally ridiculous place for an RV Park. It really is unbelievably loud. Very nice lake and walking paths around it.

All the glorious reviews are right. BUT, they have at least one very big problem... gnats. There is so many it is ridiculous! They need to spray, gnats can be a serious health hazard to people and pets. I had them in my coffee way too many times. Also, for some reason the concrete slabs are over-sloped. It was a close call getting level in our 40 ft motorhome.

Date of Stay:

Super duper long sites. I didn't measure, but they had to be like 150ft to 180ft long. Wifi was just okay. We stayed here for a month and got tired of management putting people next to us who were only staying a few days. Everyone tended to pack up and hence make noise, really early in the morning. I suppose they leave early because when in Maine, you always have a long drive to wherever your going. Nice place otherwise.

Definitely big rig friendly with their very long sites. They advertise free Wi-Fi but realize its only at the office. Some dirt roads, so if it rains it is a muddy mess. I wouldn't follow the exit signs if it has just rained, part of it may be very muddy.

First of all, I wanna say I appreciate the opportunity to use the passport rate in the summer and the location is good to Gettysburg. The niceties end there. They need to level their sites, it ain't hard so just do it. There lack of enforcing the rules is appalling. There were children playing basketball at 6am in the morning and loud drunk weekenders partying past the quiet hours. The campground has no night security phone number, they they tell you to just call 911. The long term resident across from us was mowing with his red push mower and it flung a rock and nailed the paint on our essentially new 2012 motorhome and yes he chipped the paint. To his credit... he had the side trap shut, but there is so many small rocks in the grass that he needs to take more care when he mows. figure something out because other guys won't be as nice as me. The Wifi is non-existent (worst we have ever encountered in 2 years of full-timing). Water pressure is weak.

If you are a bigger rig, watch out for your tail swing through the gate...they make you take an immediate right turn after punching in your code. The campground was kind of OK, but not really. It was a safe place and halfway decent looking, but had a long list of less than desirable things to us. Really stinky nights with so many people burning fires. The voltage read lower than I'd like ( it was 109 to 115 Volts). Lots of barking dogs in the morning. We heard a couple just barking away for long periods of time, this at 6 AM too. Management should really nip that problem in the bud. It wasn't that easy to level. It is one of those parks where most motorhomes' front wheels are way off the ground. They need to add the leveling of sites to their "to do list", for sure. Wi-Fi was almost nonexistent. My biggest problem was the office switching the pass code on me with zero warning. I had to walk in during rain and ask why the gate wasn't working. They said they change the code every week which was unbeknown to us. I did notice a multitude of other people doing the same thing, so we weren't the only ones with the problem. If you change the code every week and someone checks in mid-week and stays for a week, give them the both codes. Then on our last night, they actually stuck some very young and very loud tent campers on the RV site next to us, that's a new one and that move fully completed our disappointment in this campground. It had potential, but no need to return. Also, our dolly hitch bottomed out on asphalt as we left the campground (in the "big dip" near the trash cans).

Nice park with nice staff. Decent size sites with most of them level. Very, Very stinky nights from all the campfires. Almost every night was bad and obnoxious with all the smoke. Wifi was great during the day, but as the sun went down so did the wifi quality. Very convenient to the metro stations (don't try to drive to the National Mall especially Mon thru Fri). At night I could hear the low hum of the interstates that surround it, but really not bad at all. Very expensive to stay here, hopefully I don't have a reason to go back to DC.

If you are 40 ft or bigger and they put you on the sites with the concrete pads on the West side, you may want to back out of them. Some people were hitting their back hitches trying to pull out forwards. Too much of an incline pulling out forwards. If you look at the concrete slabs you'll notice scrapes. Nice campground otherwise and would return again. Rate reflects weekly rate.

Date of Stay:

They take cash only, hmmm that was very interesting. Also, good luck trying to level. I have a 40 ft motorhome and I got nowhere near level after 30 minutes of trying. Watch out for the speed bumps on the east side of the property. They are impossible to hit straight so everything in your refrigerator and cabinets will be thrown around big time. No use in returning to this one.

Date of Stay:

Many sites are in need of leveling. The water placement for a motor home was way way too far back. When leaving, the turn from the campground onto I-85 North is wicked tight if you tow and your RV is longer than 36ft. Find another way, know that you'll have to disconnect your car, or skip this campground. Other than that, it was okay.

Nice place to stay. Wifi was good to great most of the time. Great access to the beach and to any parts of town. Good bike riding possibilities. They do have a restaurant on site that serves breakfast and I think they do a fish fry once in awhile. The bathrooms are awesome. No motorcycles allowed, FYI.

*** PLEASE NOTE THIS FIRST PART: If you drive a bigger rig be careful if you are heading towards Charleston on Maybank/Hwy 700 (per the campground directions). The right turn from Marybank Hwy onto Riverland Dr is SHOCKINGLY TIGHT. I can't believe the campground directs people this way. The curb is all broken up from people going up and over the curb so damaging a tire is not out of the question. The light pole also has high and low scrapes on it so some people have even hitting the telephone pole. This is a VERY DANGEROUS turn so if you can find another way, please do. The campground is very nice. Lots of open space areas, trees, and bike trails. Convenient to everything. Staff is friendly. Wifi was okay to decent most of the time, but we did have to call a few times during rain and tell them to reset their wifi (each time it did work and the wifi came back on). They didn't always believe me that the reset would fix it, but it worked each time. They need to get this problem figured out. Would stay again.

Just to correct the last review, Savannah is 21 miles away, not 50 miles. Okay, my review: I think the reviews for this place are a smidgen too generous. It definitely does not deserve 8, 9, or 10 stars. No Way! Not real sure what this developer was thinking with the design of this place and it seems like he only went halfway with it. The sites are strangely elevated high above the road (elevated 4 or 5 foot higher than the road). The sites themselves are dirt/sand/weed/grass, mostly soft sand. If it were to rain and you had to leave next day, I'm sure the ground would be super-duper soft and you'd possibly sink in. We did hear trains at night (at maybe midnight a couple times). One good thing, the Internet was really good most of the time but the park was only about 20% full when we were there. We also had a swarm of huge black hornet looking things that kept getting into our rig (3 of them in 5 hours and we had the door closed). Not sure if the place can spray for those or not. I didn't appreciate the guy in the golf cart blowing the dirt off the road onto everyones rigs. This happened a couple days out of the week. That practice really needs to be rethought. The workers at the place seemed friendly.
