This park has a good number of seasonal rigs but one section seems to be set aside for short-term folks. We were put on a pull-through site that had a significant slope. Without our hydraulic levelers we wouldn't have been able to use the site. Some interior roads were paved at one time but were in a state of disrepair at the time of our visit. Staff were making an effort to patch the worst areas with gravel but repaving would be a better option. Their lake area is pretty and well kept. Staff is friendly. Be sure to follow the campground's directions and not your GPS. Saluda and the campground is in a mountainous area and roads can be difficult for larger rigs.

We have stayed here a couple of times as it comes at a convenient stop time in our itinerary. The place is really an RV dealership with some campsites in the back. A trucking company is adjacent which has noisy all night operations that can affect some sites. Our last visit occurred when the dealership seemed to have an overstock of units. Most sites and access roads were being used for storage. We arrived around 2 p.m. and only one site was available. Staff was friendly and diligent in making sure we could fit into the space before we paid. No sewer at site and the dump station was positioned on the passenger side of the rig on exit. We didn't bother to try to use it. We would strongly recommend that anyone planning on staying here, call ahead to be sure there will be sites available.

Stayed here two nights while visiting a friend in the area. Owners were very friendly. Campground is very hilly with some tight turns for larger rigs. We had a tight pull-through site but were able to carefully exit. Services: 30 amp electric, water,sewer. Satellite reception was impossible in our site (and most others, presumably) due to the tree cover. That same cover kept the place relatively cool. Many seasonal and permanent rigs but they are kept neat. The road in front of the campground is on a steep grade. Trucks were noisy during the night and early morning.

We stayed here for one night on our way north and four nights on our way back south. Very friendly owners. Full services: 50 amp electric, water, sewer. Good Wi-Fi . Most sites are pull-through but some are sloped somewhat at the sides where one would enter and exit the rig. Not too much that can be done about that since the majority of the sites are on the side of a hill. There's a good number of seasonal and permanent units but all are kept neat. We like the proximity to Mt. Airy, Galax, and Meadows of Dan. The elevation keeps the place cooler than other places at lower elevation.

Only campground we've seen that charges per person ($15). Great price for 2 persons, not so much for a family of five or more. Campground gave us a great site by the pond. Staff was very friendly. Our site was electric (30 amp) and water only. Electric outlet was worn giving a loose connection. Owner said my plug was the problem but I've used it since in other campgrounds without a problem. Sewer dump is in front of office and can be difficult to access if vehicles are in the way. We were in the area visiting relatives and would stay here again.

Rate shown is the weekend Good Sam rate. Passport America rate is offered on weeknights at this writing. We had mixed feelings about the facility. There is an old section and a much larger new section. We stayed in the new section on a concrete site. The older section did not appear well kept and had a number of 'permanents'. The newer concrete sites have an annoying curb on the driver side. It appears designed to protect the sewer connection (two per site) but the curb can be inconvenient depending on a rig's hookup configuration as well as a tripping hazard. The slabs are probably 10' wide. When steps are deployed, you will be on grass or pieces of flagstone. Picnic benches are fixed on a single pedestal. Great for easier lawn maintenance but likely to be in full sun. After paying for our site, we were handed a flyer that said cable was not available due to a service dispute (digital conversion) with the cable company. Don't know if that's a short or long term problem. I think they should be advising people of that issue before collecting payment. OTA reception of the major network stations is satisfactory. Wifi was spotty despite several antennas around the park. Though I could get a good signal, Internet access was often not available. I resorted to our Mifi card instead. Lots of locals seemed to be using the pool and playground on Saturday. Staff was friendly and competent.

Rate shown is Good Sam rate for peak season. Their summer rate is slightly less. This is an older park that civilization has now surrounded. A six lane highway (Gandy Blvd) is on the park's north perimeter. I would recommend avoiding sites 555 thru 572 that back up to the highway unless you enjoy traffic noise at all hours. A large section of the park is devoted to well-kept park model homes. Most of the RV sites are 90 degree back-ins and a little tight for large towables. There are a few pull-thrus that can accommodate larger rigs. Staff is friendly. Park is convenient to most parts of the Tampa Bay area. No cable in the section we stay in and trees can interfere with satellite reception. However, OTA reception is excellent. We have stayed here several times and will again in the future.
