About Larry Jenkins

Still working - helping keep up the Government! My wife retired a year ago and we, including Jubilee (JuJu) our miniature Schnizauer, travel the country as much as we can.

Nice park easy asscess from I-40. Roads inside campground are all level and gravel. We had a "back in" to the river - great view. The sights are the tightest we have expierenced maybe other than once. You are right on top of each other - my awnnings almost touched the RV next to me when I let them out. The park is very neat and clean and quite - we will most likely stay somewhere else next time in this area.

We have stayed at other Yogi Bear Parks and they have always been very good, good staff, and good amenities. They cater to families and kids but that was no problem as we had a site well in the back away from all the activities. Quite at night. I did want to mention there are two other parks virtually next door Two Rivers and KOA Nashville - they are equally as good from what I saw and there are no less than three RV dealers including Camping World. The OPRY hotel is about two miles away. Our sight was a pull thru easy to get in and out of - all have shade trees. My wife did the laundry and they have two to choose from. It is a little pricy at $51. a night but, you are paying for location which was OK. We would stay here again.

As usual we checked out RV Park Reviews for a one night stop and this was the choice. Very pleasant surprise. Compact park but very well laid out - we had an easy pull thru - level gravel sight easy hook up. There is a stream on the backside that looks very interesting for fly fishing and Maggie Valley is a short drive. Cannot comment on the WiFi because we did not get the code when we came in. We will look for a reason to come back here!

This is a basic RV Park and probably the best for the area. Not a lot of shade but sites were flat, gravel, and very decent spacing. The store was a little worn for wear but the staff is very helpful and friendly. WiFi is weak - nothing new. My wife did laundry (no a/c) - but, got it done. Our Mini Schinauzer enjoyed the collection of Donkeys. We stayed here mainly on reviews from this site and I would stay here again if in the area. Wilson is a great little town - love the Whirlygigs!

If you are a NASCAR fan this is the place to camp! Located within 200yds of I-95 we thought we were next to Richmond Raceway. The noise of the expressway, airplanes from a nearby airport, sirens, was almost too much to bear. Sitting outside at times you could not even hear each other talk. We had just picked up a new 5th wheel across the way and were going to stay here a few nights to shake it down for problems. We had no problems we are happy to say. Aside from the extreme noise the campground is very clean, easy to maneuver through, good staff, and many good amenities. Had I known in advance I would have asked for a site not so close to the expressway but, many of the good ones are occupied by seasonal units. Understandable. Good place for one or two nights.

We were on our way home so based on RV Park Reviews recommendations we pulled in without a reservation for a one night stay. The husband and wife team were very helpful. We got a nice pull thru but it only had 30 amps which was OK for one night. Small but, very clean campground. About 50% of seasonal RV's. Some highway noise from I-77 but we slept through. We would stay here again for a short stay.

Date of Stay:

About 50% Seasonal sites - we had campsite on the back side. It was level but took several attempts to get in because of another campsite had a large and very long motorhome (seasonal unit). We could not use the fire ring because it would have set our rig on fire because it was so close. I observed most all of the campsites were this way - doesn't make any sense because there is plenty of room to locate them away from the rigs. They advertised LP fills but when I went to the office the young lady running it said they did not sell LP. (don't think she wanted to be bothered). This was an OK campground and we were gone on day trips most of the time. This is not a campground I would spend a lot of time in.

First Off - we will never stay here again! Secondly the facilities are very good and our RV site was good. We were trying to make reservations and wanted to check out on a Saturday - I was informed they were having a Halloween activity and would not allow checkout on Saturdays because of safety reasons because there would be so many children around and activities going on - we decided to wait until Sunday. The rates are absorbent! Over $100. per night. On Saturday truck loads of kids were in the campgrounds for Trick or Treat. We went to the store and bought candy to have for the kids. I was talking with some of the parents and they told me they were from the local area and car loads of people loaded up and came to the campground to get candy for their kids. From a security stand point this bothered me. In addition on Saturday we observed several RV's coming and going during the day. After discussing this with the management it was obvious it is all about the money and they don't care about the campers. The good thing is they will never get any of our money again.

Fantastic Campground. The only reason I do not give it a 10 is because the mosquitoes were so bad we could not sit outside but we were only here for one night on our way to New England. Very clean, spacious well groomed sites, level, easy hook up. Nice shade trees. Great staff! Best Wi-Fi of any campground I have ever been in.

Date of Stay:

Be aware. No credit cards. Cash or personal check - no problem with us. Great Campground for Big Rigs! We were disappointed we could not get one of the nice pull-thru's but a Newell Coach Club had them reserved (18 Coaches). It was very interesting and entertaining to see these multimillion dollar Motor homes. We had a easy to park back-in. Level gravel - only negative is the Wi-Fi is weak. Booth Bay harbor is a short distance and there is a guy close by that will cook lobsters and bring them to you. Lots of amenities.

We were camping at Crown Point in Strafford however we had a problem with our landing gear so we went to Camping World at Chichester to get repairs. CW could not see us until the next morning so they recommended Great Meadows just down the street. The office is so full of cigarette smoke you can hardly breathe and the lady told me "Cash Only" - $38. My pull thru sight she gave me was so narrow it took me several attempts to finally get parked. Because of the landing gear problem we could not disconnect from the truck. I took my dog for a walk around the campground - very rough roads, a few good back in sights but most were either seasonal or very rough. Dog droppings everywhere! Cable TV did not work - WiFi didn't either. Will never stay here again

Date of Stay:

We really enjoyed our campsite - about 65% are seasonal but our site was somewhat secluded in a corner and it was an easy back-in. Nice shade. Did have to level one side with boards with little effort. Wife did laundry and it was clean and efficient. We stayed 5 nights and would stay again. Great staff!

Date of Stay:

This was an overnight stop on our way to New England. The sites for 50 amp are in the back on a hill. The 50 amp sites are about 70% seasonal. It took a little maneuvering to get it but, was OK. Weak WiFi - Cable TV was good. Little pricy for what you get. Would probably not stay here again.

Be aware there are a few "surcharges" in addition to rates but it is all stated ahead. I listed $54 a night because there is an additional $10 added to the rate and $5 for a pet and an additional $10 a person for guest. All of this is on the Website so there is no surprise. We were there 5 nights and it rained most of the time - not the campsites fault. There is no pavement and there was a lot of mud. The water went out twice due to people running into water spigots. Interesting. This appears to be an older campground - the back in for our 40' RV was very tight. There are nice wooden decks next to the site but, when you run out the slides it takes up most of the deck. Most sites are not level. There are concrete pads to park your rig on but, they are more suited to shorter rigs without slide outs. As always we met a lot of nice people. We rated it OK but will most likely not return.

This was our first stay at Mama Gertie's but thanks to other reviews on this site we choose it over others in the area. We have a 40' Big Horn 5th wheel and pulling the rig to the very top area, where our site was, is not for the faint of heart, but it was really easy. We were rewarded with a beautiful site with an astounding view! This area is new with packed gravel, very level, all full hookups, and clean. Only new trees at this time. Great staff! Slow internet, good facilities - grade them A! Look forward to going back-
