This is a very nice park with terrific views. Our pull thru site was gravel/grass but large and fairly level. We liked the fire rings and garbage cans at each site. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We did not use the restrooms or showers but, as well-maintained as the rest of the park is, we would guess they're fine. They have West Virginia's only working lighthouse and you can purchase tickets to tour it. They do have one rule that I wonder about; they have a limit of two dogs per site. I have a problem understanding how three 10 pound dogs could be more of a problem than two 75 pound dogs but only stayed one night so didn't raise the issue. There are very few campgrounds in this area so we would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice park but, if noise bothers you, I wouldn't recommend it since it's directly in the flight path of planes taking off and landing at the nearby airport. We only spent one night while traveling through and really didn't notice the noise with the windows closed and the furnace running. The roads were paved and we had no problem getting our 40' trailer around the camp. The pull thru sites were large, paved, and level and mostly shaded. The person taking reservations was located somewhere out of the area and was not able to give me directions and we could not reach anyone at the front office after many phone calls. We finally had to call the reservations number again and she was able to give us GPS coordinates. She assured me there would be someone at the office for us to check in but everything was locked up tight. Since we had already paid by credit card, we just went ahead and took a spot and figured we would take care of business in the morning. Again in the morning, there was no one around so we had to call "security" to finally get the office opened up for us to do the paperwork. There are not a lot of campgrounds along I-77 in this area so we would probably stay here again but we do wish they were a little more efficient.

This is a very nice park. We only stayed a couple of days while visiting family in the area but really liked it and would definitely come back. The roads were sand but well-maintained. The sites were grass/sand but level, and pull-through sites were plenty long enough for our 40' trailer and tow vehicle and wide enough for a picnic table and awning. We did not use the restrooms/showers but looked at them and they were older but very clean. There was some traffic noise from the highway but not enough to be bothersome. There is a manager as well as campground hosts so someone is usually available. I'm sure a lot of the sites were permanent or at least seasonal residents but everything was neat and well-kept.

The only way to get this rate is weekly; daily, it is $30. This is a mobile home park as well as an RV campground. There are many permanent residents and, although many of the mobile homes are nice and well maintained, quite a few of them are in bad shape. The roads are terrible, sand with giant potholes. They advertise cable TV but the only way to get it is to pay a full month ($85) plus a $40 installation charge. There was no Wi-Fi and no cell service with our phone which works almost everywhere. The laundry was a screened-in shack with no doors and no air conditioning. The only restroom/shower we could find was not in very good shape and, again, had no air conditioning. We understood that it was under new management and there seemed to be a lot of workers cleaning up but there is a lot more that needs to be done, There are many other campgrounds in this area that look much better for the same money. We would never stay here again.

Rate shown is Passport America. This is a beautiful park. We got in after the office was closed but the owner waited for us and conducted us to our site. There were many permanent residents but everything was clean and well-maintained. The pull thru was level grass with a concrete patio. We did not use the restrooms or showers but I looked at them and they were exceptionally nice. Everyone we talked with loved their park and highly recommended staying there. We only spent one night on our way through but would definitely stay again if in the area.

This is the Passport America rate. We really liked this campground. The roads are gravel but very well maintained. Some sites are gravel but most are concrete and almost all are lakeside. The pull thrus are wide and long enough for big rigs. The lakes are beautiful and we really enjoyed watching the herons. They went out of their way to help us when we had problems with our trailer. We don't fish but anyone who does would love it here! They have several rental cabins right on the lake. The laundry was clean and had 4 washers and dryers. We are self-contained so did not use the restrooms or showers but, as well as everything else is taken care of, I would imagine they are fine. They have a very large clubhouse that everyone seemed to hang out at. We would definitely stay here again.

This is the Passport America rate plus $1 for 50 amp service. We just stopped for one night while passing through the area. The road leading into the park was gravel and very narrow but there was no traffic so it was not a problem. The sites are grass/gravel and not particularly level but plenty big enough and a great deal for the price. The Wi-Fi worked well and staff was very friendly and helpful, returning my calls as promised. We would definitely stay here again.

Rate shown reflects one night at Passport America and four nights with GoodSam Discount. We were not impressed with this park. The pullthru sites were so narrow that, by the time we got far enough away from the electric box to put our slides out, we were pretty much off the gravel. We were not able to get level at all. We could not use our awning due to a tree too close to our site. There was no picnic table and, really, no room for one. They supposedly are very strict about cleaning up after your pets but our site had dog poop that we had to clean up so we didn't track it into our trailer. There were no trash cans so everything had to be taken to the dumpsters clear up at the front of the park. The highlight of our stay was the next door neighbor starting up his very loud motorcycle every morning at 5:30 a.m. We're also motorcyclists so obviously have nothing against bikers but that much noise that early shows a real lack of consideration for others and the park didn't seem to be interested in doing anything about it. And, to top it off, we got infested with ants - apparently, our site was on a very large anthill! We did not use the restrooms/showers but I did look in and they appeared OK. The WIFi worked well even though we were quite a ways from the office. It is very hard to get to but that is the fault of Texas' one-way access road system and no fault of the park. The staff was friendly but provided no escort to the site. We would not stay here again.

This is a very small park near Lake Tawakoni. The camp host lives on the premises and is extremely helpful. The concrete pads are small - probably less than 20' but there was plenty of room for our 40' fifth wheel trailer, just couldn't get all 4 jacks on the concrete. The sewer hookup is at the rear of the site, so we had to get an extension hose, but other hookups were very convenient. There are a few permanent trailers that are rented out but they are well kept. There are several pavilions for day use as well as a boat launch. There is a good-sized playground, also. We would definitely stay here again when back in the area.

Rate shown is Passport America. We really liked this park. It would be impossible to find nicer, more helpful people anywhere. It really is in the middle of nowhere but, if you call ahead (which we strongly recommend), they will give you excellent directions. The back roads leading to the park are narrow but there is no traffic so it wasn't a problem. Roads and sites are gravel but meticulously maintained. Pull-throughs are narrow but we did have room to get our slides out, even with the neighbor's awning out. They are continuing to make improvements and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

This rate reflects the senior federal passport rate. This is a very nice park, restrooms and showers are extremely clean and very well maintained. Hosts and other campers were helpful and friendly. They advertise 4 pull-thrus but they are not possible for most big rigs to get into. Sites are paved and mostly level. All sites are shaded. It is on a beautiful lake with a swimming area and boat launch. Most campgrounds in the Nashville are very expensive so this was a great choice. We will definitely stay here again if back in the area.

The rate shown is Passport America. This is a nice, older park. There are many permanent sites but they seem to be well-maintained. The transient sites are mostly grass but fairly level. There are lots of trees but no problem moving our 40' rig around. They have quite a few pull-thrus that were easy in and out. The restrooms and showers are older but clean and in good condition. They have a small laundry with 4 each washers & dryers. There is also a large pavilion with a small game room. Weekday office hours are only 3 to 7 pm but you can self-register. It's only 1/2 mile off the interstate and we would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice park; family owned for many years. Staff is very friendly and helpful. After they saw the size of our rig, they willingly changed our reserved site to a larger one and escorted us to it. Many full-time residents but all sites were very well maintained. Lots of trees and plenty of shade but no problem getting large rigs around the roads. The sites are gravel but very level. They even have a flush toilet in the outhouse in the tent area.

This is the PA rate with a $3 upcharge for 50-amp service. This is the second time we have stayed here and will definitely be back. Level sites (some concrete) with some pull-thru. Staff is extremely friendly and helpful and has a connection with people who purchase tickets at a discount and deliver to the campground. Pool is beautiful and very well-kept. Very nice, clean laundry. Didn't use showers or restrooms since we are self-contained but look clean and well-maintained.

This is a nice park. Water and electric worked well. Sites were large and fairly level. When there is no attendant, there is an "honor box" that you can use to register and pay. The park was clean, quiet, and neat. Unfortunately, restrooms were closed for the winter. The attendant was friendly and very helpful, opening the restrooms for us but the showers were not operational because the water heaters had been disassembled.
