Very nice new campground. The staff (and owner) are very helpful. This is a great location if you are traveling US 17. A 10 minute drive to all facilities in Williamston. Would recommend this campground. Rated a 9 because all grass sites. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We found Farm Country Campground when we had to evacuate the Outer Banks due to hurricane Arthur. The campground is not very old so it has that "new" feeling. Sites are nicely sized so that you have ample room. There is no shade as the trees were planted when the campground was put in a few years ago. The grass had been bush-hogged but not "mowed" so for us was a bit too tall and pretty much made you feel like you were definitely camping in a field. The sites had no gravel but were almost level. Staff and owners were super nice and always helpful. Pool was nice and had a handicapped lift. Bathrooms, laundry rooms and office area were all very clean. Deadwood theme park is across the road and is a cute distraction for a couple hours. Everybody said the food at the restaurant there was good but we did not eat there. All in all a nice, quiet, family campground out in the middle of "Farm Country"! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The name says it all—deep, cushiony grass covers the entire park. We enjoyed 3 quiet, peaceful days here. The park is surrounded by farm fields and the fields are surrounded by forests, about 5 miles from town and U.S. Highway 17 (worth the drive). Excellent maintenance—mowing is done by mowers attached to relatively quiet farm tractors, doesn’t take all day. Open all year, 40X100 foot very spacious level pull-through sites with no parking obstructions (easy in and easy out) have conveniently placed full hookup facilities including all-season water spigots, 50# water pressure, 30 & 50 amp power. Medium size tree at each site. Very clean bathrooms with 2 washer and 2 dryer laundry. No speed bumps! No highway or train noise! TV reception: major networks + 3 PBS stations. One bar Verizon signal. Friendly staff, no discounts from $30 30 amp sites and $35 50 amp sites. Playground. In mid-April, the swimming pool and pond were not open. There is a restaurant and a small amusement park across the road from the RV park. No recycling. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a newly developed campground. Excellent facilities including a small stocked fishing pond. The owner was extremely helpful with an RV mechanical problem. Also there is a restaurant across the street that is owned by the CG. We camped here in a Motorhome.
WE DID NOT STAY AT THIS PARK. After seeing camping sign on highway late in the day, we called and was told $24.00 for W/E hook-ups. The owner told us we would have no problem navigating in his 40 year old park (this was the 1st clue to keep on driving). When we arrived and pulled in, could not turn around to get out. Tight squeezes through trees and driving on a washboard dirt road we found the office and saw the exit sign and kept right on driving. I would not let my dogs out at night and don't know how we would have made it into any of the vacant spots we saw (we have a 39' 5th wheel which we told owner when we called). It was touch and go leaving the park to miss the trees and hold onto the steering wheel due to awful road conditions. I would never stay here We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you can maneuver a roller coaster with your rig and don't mind sleeping in a vertical position, this is the campground for you! I'm not quite sure how they managed to snake electric through amongst all those trees, which could explain why our a/c fan sped up everytime the compressor shut off (low voltage???). I didn't see the crane, but there surely was one hidden somewhere for dragging RV's back out of the pond when they forgot to block their tires and set their emergency brake after weaving their way into their "spot", which surely must have served as a boat ramp at some time in it's past. Wait: then there would have been pavement instead of sandy tree roots. In our feeble attempts to (hahahaha), level our rig, we managed to bury our blocks so deep I almost didn't see one when it came time to pack them back up. We did manage to level it enough that we could see the very tip of the bubble sneak out past the black plastic end of the gauge. Thank goodness we parked with the foot end of the bed lower, so that we had no trouble sliding out of bed in the morning! We did both find ourselves corkscrewing down with every toss and turn, several times waking up and climbing back up to the headboard end of the bed, but we never actually did fall out. Leaving was quite easy, as all we had to do was release the emergency brake on the toad, put the motorhome in gear and drop the emergency brake on it, which gave us enough momentum to climb the hill back out of this poor excuse of a campground. Had we been in anything but a small class C, we would have cried before ever making it over the rollercoaster to the office! Our bus would never have even made the road, as it would have bottomed out on the first hump. Again, a good use for a crane. As for the many permanent inhabitants: we noticed they pretty much all were travel trailers and tents, lots and lots of tents, hammocks, etc. At least you could level a hammock here. As for the sewer hookup: well it was somewhat filled with sand, and it was obvious that we, like every other inhabitant of our spot in the past, had simply forgotten our 'sewage lift station' so that we could pump our tank uphill about 5' to hit the drain pipe. Water? Didn't even bother.
Had there been any other place to camp around this location, we would have fled like a house afire. In fact, after we slid into our spot, we actually got online with our cellular air card and searched in vain for another campground within a two hour drive west, but to no avail. The only positive thing I can say about this campground is that the office was friendly, and the "live-ins" seemed to really be enjoying themselves and had really decorated up their trailers with decks and large, permanent substructures, giving them a level, comfortable view of the green murky pond below. If you are in a tent and don't mind sandy tree roots under your "bed", this probably would be loads of fun. It's just not, in any way, a place for motorhomes of any size! We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is out in the country. Dirt roads are a little over uses, narrow and one lane. Several of the sites flood with rain. We have stayed several times in tents with groups of scouts and have been flooded several times. Bathhouses are clean but have a bad odor. Arcade is older and no AC. Small camp store. There are two pools and one has water slide. Lake is very low and you can touch bottom of canoe to bottom of lake in several areas. Sandy ground and many trees in CG. There are many RVs on the other side of lake but some were in the area where we also stay. We camped here in a Tent.
Since we camp in a pop-up, bath houses are of the utmost important. Green Acres does not have clean bath houses at all! They were covered in black mold. My husband and son used the woods most of the time and we took dips in the pool to "clean off" instead of showering. Staff is friendly, but lake was dry because of drought so there were no lake activities. They had lots of activities planned for the weekend. There are a lot of permanent sites in need of desperate repair and the roads are hard to navigate. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.

This park is by far the worse we have ever been to. The road is terrible almost to the
point of impassable. Once commited we had to continue. There is no turning back. The whole park was very slummie. We could not get out fast enough. How or
why TL gives a 6.5/6.5/6. makes us afraid to trust them (Trailer Life) again. They should not be rated at all. We camped here in a Motorhome.

All dirt/sand roads and sites. Not many sites for RV transients, mostly permanent trailers. The big rig sites are few, and entry road couldn't be easy for them, but there were a few there. Drought meant the pond was almost dry; lots of mosquitoes in early Oct.
The facility is 35 yrs old, clean, but showing it's age. Price we paidd was with FMCA or AARP discount We camped here in a Motorhome.
These rates reflect a Good Sams discount. Dirt road to a grassy field with hookups. Easily found. No cable but good wifi connection although I had to ask for the code as well as a receipt for my cash payment. It is fine for an overnight stay while driving through. We saw no shower house or bathrooms. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a small, but very well maintained campground, if you discount the difficulty in getting into the circuit breaker box to turn on your electric. Grass sites that are well kept and mowed. Good electric power and water. Small, above ground swimming pool to bob in, no shade and it is hot, hot in August, friendly folks running the camp, and very quiet. We were the only camper in the pull through site area. Easy to get to from US-64, but the entrance is small so don't try and drive up to the office. Just park on the small driveway leading to the campground. I would highly recommend this park to those that are heading to the Outer Banks of NC, as it is a good spot to spend the night prior to the last 100 miles to the beach. If you like quiet, this is the place for you. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. This camp is "Big Rig" accessible. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly owners. Very large sites for even the largest RVs. Park was very well maintained with gravel roads and grass sites. Had no problem negotiating curves and turns in the park. Would liked to have had picnic tables but really wasn't an issue as we only stayed one night. Will stop here again and spend more time the next time we're in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We DID NOT STAY at this campground. The sign on the interstate should be taken down. It is run down, roads are too narrow to navigate with a motorhome of any size. I was very proud to get out of here without hitting something. I will attempt to come here again with my motor home. We camped here in a Motorhome.
