We stayed a few nights. This park is OLD and needs updating. Many of the trailers are permanent. Some residents are year round living in both mobile homes and travel trailers. The photos on their website gallery are deceiving. There is no lake or golf course attached to the park. The photos were not even taken nearby. There is only one small two position bathroom with a single stall shower for each gender that serves more than 100 camping spots, which are not nearly sufficient for the quantity of people trying to use them. Most sites are barely large enough to accommodate a single width camper. Some slides encroach on their neighbor's space. All, without exception, concrete patio pads are broken. WiFi is sufficient for checking email or web surfing. Downloading a photo or streaming video is next to impossible.

Date of Stay:

$38 Water, Elect, Sewer. $34 Water & Electric. Internet was good, but there were very few other people there to use a portion of the band width. We checked in after the office closed for the evening so I had no contact with any staff member. I filled out an envelope, then put it and payment in the door slot. For a one night stay while traveling it is an ok place. Many of the travel trailers are set up as semi permanent residences. The campground seems to be used primarily for access to lake fishing and people passing through. There is a fuel stop at the exit on I-95 and a few other adjacent campgrounds. Shopping and restaurants are at the next exit, 3 miles south. Mosquitoes the size of quarters swarmed us when we went outside. (not hundreds, but thousands) We could not open the door without 10-20 flying in. For this reason, I would not recommend this campground after it has rained.

We stayed here November 2014. Our site had water and electric. Dump station is on the exit road. I will stay here again. After dusk, there are very many mosquitos. During winter, reservations are a good idea.

We stayed here while visiting DC. I was concerned with security prior to my arrival, but was very surprised to find a park that made me feel safe. The NP police headquarters, for all National Parks in this area, is located at the park entrance. The park is completely surrounded by a huge forest. Though it is close to I-495, we could barely hear traffic at night. We were there mid September when the sites were 75% unoccupied, one loop was completely closed for the season. Our site was paved. Handicap and a few others are paved with asphalt, but most are gravel/dirt. $16 regular nightly fee or $8 with senior/disabled pass. No sites have hookups. There is water (hose bib) within 100' of most sites. There was only one dump station, which will be problematic during high use times. I will stay here again spring or fall, but not during high use summer season.

The staff was friendly and helpful. It is a family owned park, oriented towards families with children. Sites were very close, too close for us. Each site has it's own concrete fire box which created a smoke problem. Many/most sites have permanently set up camping trailers. Though most were well kept, a few tarps were covering some. I would use this park only for a one night stay when I was traveling to another destination, but most likely will not be back.

Enjoyed this park. The picnic area across Highway 1 is really nice too, and water front. The camping area is at the base of Mount Battie, with access to the top by road or hiking trail. The view is awesome! We stayed 3 nights. Our site (45) had water and electric only, though many sites have none. Our site was separated from others by trees and shrubs. It was rated as medium size, for up to 25' trailer, but would easily have accommodated a 30' with plenty of room for a tow vehicle to park.

We stayed one night while in transit. I would stay here again, even though it is a little over priced. Approach roads to and within this park is the worst I have ever encountered, they are terrible!!!! Many sites have permanent trailers, though most were well kept. The laundry consists of 2 washers and 2 driers, so expect to wait your turn. This park is right on the lake.

Date of Stay:

We stayed on a weekday so the park was mostly empty. Great water and mountain views. Good canoeing. Our site had no hookups. We did not use the public toilets, so I have no comment. Fresh water and dump station access was good. Access roads within the park were good. Every site was level. There no TV reception using a standard amplified antenna.

Date of Stay:

Most of the spaces are filled by year round campers, most not well kept. Many residents are dumping their gray water on there site, where no sewer is available. Roads approaching and within the park were terrible. Though friendly, the young lady at the counter obviously did not have experience. WIFI is only at the office, and it did not work while we were there. CATV was good.

My wife and I stayed for a few nights while visiting family and friends nearby. We did not use the park facilities other than park our camping trailer. Do not rely on the people at the office to assign a proper parking site for you. All sites are grass, no paving, no pad. Not many are level. Do not let the staff assign you to the "overflow" area. If tell them your rig is over 26' they will send you to overflow.... That area is beside the entry road at the entrance to the park, where cars drive by at all times. The site I was on would easily accept the total length of my rig, at 47'.

My wife & I stayed one night while in transit. From major highways access is curvy hilly narrow paved roads. Management staff was helpful upon arrival. They moved us from a back-in to a drive through site without an upcharge. Acorns were falling so they bothered us during the night. Ask for a site not under a tree if you are here during the fall. CATV was good. Not sure about cell or WIFI, since we did not use them.

Nothing fancy! The photos on their website show the park several years ago. There are many travel trailers from the 1960's that have been set up permanently with rooms added on. Also there are mobile homes. Some trailers are inhabited year round rentals, some are seasonal rentals. Many trailers are left year round, but inhabited by out of state owners seasonally. There are transient trailers that come and go, but not many. There is only one female and one male toilet/shower room which serves the pool, the club house, and any camper without facilities. The toilets are not adequate for the quantity of people using them. EVERY concrete pad on each site is broken and uneven. Some are unsafe! I recommend camping here only if you have toilet and bath facilities inside your RV.

Date of Stay:

Camping sites are OK, but small. The concrete pads are broken. Driveways are small between trailers making it difficult to park. Lots of noise from the gun club during the day. Lots of traffic all day since the parking lot for the club house is adjacent to the camping area. There are no restroom facilities at the camping area. Toilets are available at the golf clubhouse. I would recommend this place for overnight or a short stay, but only if your rig has it's own toilet/bath facilities.
