Date of Stay:

Older park with lots of permanent residents. But the campground is slowly improving. The electrical boxes are new and the electrical power is strong. Wifi signals are great, and there is lots of open area to get a satellite signal. We stay here a couple of times a year for a week or two at a time, and we have seen the improvements over the last several years. It's the closest park to Spartanburg and is easy access from I-26/I-85 interchange.

Date of Stay:

Ok for an overnight stay. Easy on and off access from I-95. They advertise "cable TV" but you have to get a cable box from the office (with a $40 deposit) and then hook it up to your TV. Very impractical for most RVs with built-in TVs, especially if you have more than one. If the front office had been truthful about this when we checked in, we would have gone elsewhere. Wifi connection was strong, however. Lots of pull-thru sites for overnighters, but beware the wicked right turns towards the exits if you park too close to the end of the row. As there are other more modern parks in the area, we would only stay here again if there were no vacancies at nearby parks.

OK for an overnight stay. Our GPS directed us to the local historical museum instead of to the park. Both the museum and the campground said this is a common problem. The correct road is between the Waffle House and the Denny's right on Rt 17 just off I-95. The sites are level and most are pull-throughs. The park is older, and has only one bath facility. The bathhouse is quite old and the plumbing runs slowly, but it was very clean. The check-in clerk said that there was free Wi-Fi at the office, but out in the campground, we'd have to pay for TengoInternet Wi-Fi service. Fortunately, we have an external long-range antenna, and could pull in the free Wi-Fi with no problem, even though we were way out in the last row of sites. At $24 for a Passport America rate, it was OK, but no way would it be worth $48 for an overnight stop. Cable TV had the regular network channels, CNN and FNC, but no ESPN. I doubt if satellite TV would work, as the whole campground is heavily wooded.

We stayed here overnight at the Good Sam rate. We had a nice long pull-through site that was very wide and level. The park is easily accessible from both I-80 and I-476. The overnight area is close to the road (not the freeways), but we did not find the road noise to be a problem. The park is a nice and heavily wooded with lots of long-term seasonal campers. The roads are a little narrow, but the overnight area is easily maneuvered. Restrooms are very clean, and the showers have adequate dressing space, as well. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable TV. Satellite users may find it difficult to get a signal because of the wooded nature of the park. We would stay here again; in fact, we would welcome a stay here for a week or so. It is lovely and evokes feelings of what "camping" should be...outdoors and back to nature.

Date of Stay:

Campground is mostly full of older, unkempt seasonal campers. The sites available for short term are horribly unlevel and not near the bathrooms. They advertise free Wi-Fi, but it is not free. There is a hotspot near the pool, which is erratic. Bathrooms are often full of unsupervised children playing. When you arrive, there is no map of the campground to guide you to your site. The lady who checks you in just says, "Drive down the middle road here; everything ends in a circle." Whatever that means! This really more of a primitive campground. We will not be staying here again.

Campground is way off the main roads, and thus not suitable for overnight if you're traveling I-71. There are many long-term older permanent rigs toward the back of the park. The front section near the office and pool is much, much nicer. All the sites appear to be very level. The bathrooms are older, but have been remodeled. There is a separate shower house. Wi-Fi is erratic. You probably will need to keep resetting your browser to get it to work. No cable TV, and most sites are too shaded for a satellite signal. Pool is nice and well-kept.

We were pleasantly surprised by this campground. Years ago it had a so-so reputation, but the place has been cleaned up and upgraded. We spent 4 nights here and definitely will return when we are in the area. The bathrooms are old, but clean. The sites are level and mostly pull-throughs. The staff is friendly and the pool is inviting. Easy access from the freeway for overnight stays. The freeway exit is being working on, so call the park office for directions, as the GPS will try to route you through the old street.
