Where is the Lake? One unisex bathroom/shower - that's it. Next to noisy Rt. 280. No swimming pool. Not a Good Sam Park anymore. Should be priced in the $20-25 range. No site/facilities map. No Wi-Fi. No cable - told we would get a few air channel stations (no CBS or PBS). No credit cards. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Narrow gravel entrance roads. Gravel sites with full hookups. Nice shade trees. No cable. Very marginal Wi-Fi. Good 50 amp. Very friendly host with site escort. Rate is high for what you get. OK for an overnight stay if you need to get off the road. The park seems to be full of long term residents and needs some work. I had to pull grass out of the water valve box in the ground to get my fresh water hose hooked up. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fee reflects the Passport America rate, only available on Mon and Tues nights. Owners were exceptionally friendly and would rate 10/10 in our opinion. Unfortunately the campground needs some tidying and seems to be a depot for junk. The sites are all pull-through and level. Services include cable TV and good Wi-Fi connection. Laundry OK at $1 per load. Campground is full of seasonals who leave for work early in morning. Campground is immediately adjacent to 280 and the noise continues through the night. We might stop here for one evening, passing through, but would not go out of our way. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mixed feelings about this park. It is good for our purposes as a couple of days stop. Full hookup with 50 amp power and cable. Wi-Fi is weak. Site was level and well spaced. However, it is NOT a destination or family park. Most sites are long term workers who leave noisily at 5 AM. Environment offers no aesthetics (where is the lake?) and you do hear highway noise if your windows are open. Owner is very friendly and helpful but the scenery is not the best. We would use it as a stopover again, but not as a "destination" park. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for one night only on the way to our destination. When we saw a collection of rusted out, abandoned vehicles near the entrance we almost turned around...but one of the employees came out to us and convinced us to stay. I have to say the owners were really nice, but that's the only thing good about the park. It is horribly run down and dirty...the "office" is located in a run down trailer with rusted junk all around it. There is only one bathroom for the whole park, and it is located in an added on room in the back of that trailer - the door had to be held closed with a folding metal chair. The fee is collected at the site - cash or check only. The playground is a collection of run down, filthy, moldy old plastic toys that look like they were collected from the side of a road. Again, in all fairness, the owners couldn't have been nicer...the site we stayed in was level and it did have some grass and gravel. The best way to describe this place is VERY rustic South. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Like previous reviews, this is not a destination park. However, it is fine for an overnight. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a level pull through site. We are self contained so the lack of facilities didn't bother us. However, I am a light sleeper and it was too close to the noisy road for me. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

As others have pointed out, this isn't a destination park. It's one you where you overnight on your way somewhere else. Lots of permanent residents. Owner very pleasant. We called ahead. He met us with golf cart and took us to our site. Asked if we needed anything, offered to help set up and invited us to come to the entrance and sit around and visit with the locals. Good power, water, cable (76 channels he boasted of) and sewer. Easy in and out. We certainly recommend this CG for exactly what it is. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

We were only here 1 night. They were able to accommodate our truck w/boat and MH w/toad in one long pull-thru slot. Took a walk around the park and there is a lot of old mechanical equipment and old trucks on the perimeter of the campground with trees grown up all around them. It is ok if you need a place in this area for an overnite but is not a vacation destination. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is the only site available in the area. Wi-Fi and satellite available. Friendly site. Fairly basic though, but would stay again. Cash only! You must call to meet management at the camp. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fairly level (we made it work). All amenities. Easy off/on to the highway. We thought by selecting this facility a few miles off the interstate we'd be free of highway noise. Not so, the highway was close by. Payment is in cash to the owner who takes you to your site. All-in-all a good overnight campground. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park. Easy in and out with separate exit. VERY friendly staff. No office, owner and camp host met us at the entrance and escorted us to our LARGE pull-through site. Wi-Fi and cable TV was excellent. $20 Passport America. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We used this for just one night on the way to Gulfport, MS. Rate entirely too high for the facilities. Would look further next time. The manager was very nice and helpful. No office to go to. He met you at the entrance, led you to the spot, and then collected at that point. (Checks or cash accepted, no credit cards.) We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is Passport America that is only good Monday and Tuesday. Long pull-through gravel sites, can stay hooked up if desired with no problem. Good 50 amp electricity and water pressure. Shady sites and friendly, helpful owners. Easy access from I-85. Negative is as previously posted with junky stuff all around outskirts of park but the campsites are maintained. Good overnight park and would return but only at Passport rates. Not worth the full rate. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an old campground. We didn't see an office. The CG owner came to collect at our site. It's very quiet, off the highway in a rustic setting with many trees. It was easy in and out and going to the site although the roads and sites are gravel. Even so, we leveled up easily. Cable TV was good but not so, the Wi-Fi. We had trouble connecting. The bathhouse was unisex but clean. The facilities are so old, I would have to say the $32 rate was too high. It needs major upgrading. We camped at Lakeside RV Park in a Motorhome.
