We stayed at this site overnight while traveling. It was more than adequate for that purpose. Due to the length of my trailer we used a site that was on the road entering the RV park versus actually being in the park. As a result, there was no one else around us and this presented us with a quiet night. It had rained quite a bit in the preceding days and while the site was a bit soggy that was to be expected. There were no sewer hook ups available which we had forgotten to ask about over the phone before we made our reservation. The park does have a dump site, but our RV was too big to adequately use it and turn around. Keep that in mind. Access on and off the interstate was easy and it wasn't too far away.

We stayed here overnight while traveling through the area. I was pleasantly pleased at how nice the park presented itself. We stopped early in the afternoon and spent the evening walking the grounds. The restroom facilities and showers appeared nice although we did not use them. There are several sites adjacent to a lake that offered lots of fishing. The State Park also has a pool that looked like it was to be opening soon. We debated on staying an extra day to explore the park more, but could not fit it into our schedule. We travel in a 42 ft and while the roads at first appeared a bit small there was plenty of room to maneuver. We would definitely stay here again.

Overall the park is good. The rate was a bit high as we travel with four children and the base charge did not cover most of them. The park was conveniently located in relation to downtown Charleston. While the park was quiet and nice I often felt like we were being watched. On one hand it is great the staff is constantly driving around the grounds keeping an eye on things. On the other hand the reminders about what you could not do were a bit too much for me. I know that several people complained about the speed bumps, but I don't think they were that big of a deal; although, there are a lot of them. While the park is nice the next time in the area I'll search for better pricing in advance.

The overall park atmosphere is great. The walking trails through the woods are about 6 feet wide and completely graveled to make the up and down trek much easier. There are wooden bridges along the way as well as benches for resting. Each tenth of a mile is marked so you know how far you have gone. There are also many more smaller side trails for more hiking and biking. The Falls are great and for the more serious adventurer you can hike to the bottom and behind the falls either from the campground(not the easiest) or from the next door park(zoo). The park has a petting animal area and a small train and a few other activities. The showers were very clean. The only negative I had was I thought the overall park was geared for smaller trailers. We camped in a 42 ft RV. Almost all electrical and sewer are located at the very back of the sites. The roads are a bit narrow, but navigable if going very slowly.

This is a large Thousand Trails park that is much nicer than any of the other Thousand Trails locations we have stayed at in the Southeast. I was originally reluctant to return to Thousand Trails after my previous experiences, but this site was much different. There are activities scheduled throughout the entire day and most evenings. The Rec Hall has a small store and grill serving breakfast and lunch. There are two pools along with shuffleboard, pickle ball, horse shoes, basketball, and more. The park was very enjoyable to walk and ride our bikes through. The park is divided into different sections with the back section being heavy wooded. We stayed in this section for two weeks and closer to the Rec Hall for another two weeks. We enjoyed both areas. There is only one trash disposal and it is centralized by the Rec Hall. This is a little bit inconvenient, but it made sense. The one disappointment I had was the poor internet reception. This was available for free in the Rec Hall, but it was out about half the time and very slow when it was running. I used the local library about 2 miles away when I really needed it. The one thing that could make the park better would be to have more 50 amp service. Depending upon when you arrive you may not get 50 amp since everything is first come, first serve. Generally, you can move the next morning by lining up outside the office at least 30 minutes before it opens. At that time you can choose any 50 amp sites that are open by departing guests. My family enjoyed this park immensely. Our rate reflects Thousand trails membership.

The park met out short terms needs for one week. All sites are preassigned. It was clean and quiet and close to the Disney activities. Internet access was available, but on a paid basis only. We did have cable included in the rate. There were two pools in different spots in the park. The grounds were clean and maintained. We travel with an extra small trailer and had to park it away from our site at an overflow area. This is also where the trash is located. Our daily rate reflects a weekly rate.

The park was simple. We stayed here for an overnight using Passport America. It is about 6 miles north of the Interstate and not difficult to find. The owner was waiting for us when we arrived and we paid for the evening at our campsite. The place is quiet, but as others have stated, there are not a lot of extras here. The park is on a lake, but we did not get to enjoy it due to time limitations. One disappointment was the area in general seems to be a bit run down. It could be really nice. I did notice a few ants running around my hose connections at my RV when I was loading to leave, but a simple ant trap eliminated them over the next day. The WiFi and cable were good. I would stay here again for an overnight.

The overall atmosphere and look of the park is great. It is well organized and clean. Each site is very spacious, providing for more privacy than most other RV parks. There is a small park with games and children's play equipment overlooking a river that continues to add to the ambiance. A small walking path was also just added. The river was low and we were able to play in it and explore it with small children. That may not be the case at other times of the year. The shower house was well maintained as were the laundry rooms. The only thing preventing me from giving this a 10 was a few negative experiences. There were a number of permanent residents or at least winter residents, but all were nice except the one who decided we were exceeding the very low 5 mph speed limit which resulted in a warning phone call from the owner on day 29 of a 31 day stay. That left a bad taste in our mouths as neither myself or wife could recall exceeding the limit. Also, as I indicated, the owners are extremely attentive to details. However, that can result in a slight negative as well. Our son took the dog for a walk without a cleanup bag and of course the dog did its business. Our son came home to get the bag and before he could return the owner was knocking on our door asking us to clean up. I understand, but maybe this is a bit aggressive. We stayed here for a month and the rate reflects additional children and electricity.

We only stayed at the park for a quick visit to downtown San Antonio for the night. The park was conveniently located for that, although the sign for the park is difficult to see from the highway. The site we stayed in was a pull through and very long, accommodating our 42 ft fifth wheel and tow truck along with another truck and small trailer. It was a bit difficult to understand one of the signs to get to our site, but we made it. The park is on a river and it looked like it would have been fun to explore it, but time did not allow for that. When checking in the clerk was very nice and helpful. It appeared the majority of the sites were occupied by older units that were permanent residents, but for an overnight stay it was more than adequate and we would stay again. I can't comment on the bathrooms or shower house as we did not use them. Our rate reflected a Good Sam cash discount.

The park is older and almost all sites are permanent residents. The road had many potholes and it didn't help it was raining creating a huge mud mess. The bathroom and shower were clean, but management decided not to supply toilet paper or paper towels due to theft. Also, there was no shower curtain. We did not use the laundry facilities. The sites available were very close together. There was internet service and it was okay. If stopping only for a day or two the location is good, but I personally would not stay any longer. Be warned the noise from the highway is very noticeable and loud. The rate reflects myself, wife and 4 children.

We stayed at the park for one month during the Christmas and New Year holidays. There is nothing fancy about the park, but it was better than I expected. The majority of campers are long term, but everything was very orderly and quiet. Management was visible every day and always working to make improvements. The park provides a propane pickup and drop off service through out the day which was very nice during the colder month. Internet is available, but at a cost unless you access it at the club house for free. An earlier post indicated there was no shower house. In my visit the clubhouse had several bathrooms with showers. These were clean. The roads are paved with the sites being packed gravel and level. I would definitely stay here again. The rate reflects a month stay with four children and the cost of electricity.

This is a great RV park. Everything is extremely orderly. The concrete sites are perfectly level with room between them. The location is about 2-3 miles off the interstate, but well worth the few minutes to get there. It was a little cold to use the swimming pool, but it looked great. There was also a fully stocked pond. The restrooms were clean and nicely maintained. The park is expanding to meet a growing local demand for workers, but almost everyone at the site were travelers. We stayed here for 1 week in a fifth wheel visiting relatives and definitely would return again. Maybe next time we wouldn't tell the relatives.

In the short time we were there I really enjoyed the park. We didn't get to spend too much time enjoying the different amenities as we were searching for a new home in the area. However, the park had numerous trails and water available along with a golf course. The roads in the campground were in great condition. We stayed in a pull through which was basically a paved area adjacent to the road. You had the option of facing your RV in either direction as there were no posted signs on which direction to travel on the roads in the campground. Most people had their doors facing the road. We chose the opposite and of course had to run our water and electric under the RV as a result, but no problems there. There was plenty of space between campers. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring. The picnic tables need upgrading, but it was still a great atmosphere. We will definitely camp here again when we have more time. The only negative is the distance from the front of the park to the campground and the early closing of the back entrance at 5 o'clock. It is over five miles from the front entrance to the campground. If you miss the cutoff time for the back entrance, plan to add 20-25 minutes to your drive to get back to your site. Also, internet service was supposed to be available, but it was not working. The office indicated this problem was being worked on.

We stayed here in a 42 ft fifth wheel. We prefer the atmosphere of State Parks versus RV Parks. As a previous reviewer stated this park is somewhat older and showing signs of age. There are no sewer hookups or 50 amp service. As we stayed only a few days this was not an issue. The park was not made for big rigs. I found the road condition okay, but very narrow with many trees adjacent to the road making the winding road interesting. Drive very slowly! We chose a pull through which is basically a small half circle next to the main road. The site was not very level and it appeared one of the better sites. I had to level partially off the pad to make it work. On a positive note, the handicapped sites were in great condition and perfectly level. We called a few days before we stayed and the individual we spoke with was very helpful, although there was no one on site when we arrived in the afternoon. The campground does not have internet service, but the lodge does. However, when we went to use it the internet was not available and had not been for some time. There were other amenities on site, but with limited time we did not get to use them. The restrooms and showers were very clean and updated.

I really didn't know what to expect at this campground based on the varying reviews. We camped here to be closer to Cleveland. The last two times in the area we stayed in Chattanooga at another park. I knew this was going to be bad when we called the day before to ask if there was room to park an additional vehicle and small trailer. I didn't get a good answer and then inquired about the rate. As it was different than what the website was showing I inquired and was told additional fees would be in effect. I indicated I would finish the reservation on line since the price was less. The next day when we showed up the woman behind the desk immediately asked if I was the one who called the day before and made an on-line reservation. The conversation went rapidly downhill from there. To make a long story short, this woman should not be in customer service. When all was settled I politely thanked the woman and received no response or even the slightest acknowledgement; and no, I was not allowed to park my extra trailer there even though there was quite a bit of room to do so. Even though the above occurred, I tried to objectively rate this park. There are many permanent trailers on site. For the most part they were clean and orderly. However, the park is older and starting to show serious signs of being worn out. We did not use the restrooms so I can't comment on them. The sites were not paved and some had serious slopes. Mine was okay, but I had to laugh when I was told we were in a deluxe site. There was nothing deluxe about the site except that there was good Wi-Fi and cable. I do not plan to stay here again in the future. It isn't worth it. However, if you are looking for a quick on and off from the interstate for an overnight stay this park would probably work. I stayed here in a 42 ft fifth wheel with my wife, 4 of my children, and two dogs. If you choose to stay, don't mention my name or you may regret it.
