New owner. Park has run down with a lot of permanent residents. Most pull through sites available have trees that are nearly impossible to get around. We arrived early morning 5:30 am as we had truck breakdown and pulled into a non sewer site and slept until 3:00 that afternoon. I went up to pay for a day and was told as I arrived that morning I had to pay 2 days to stay till the next morning, which would have been 24 hours? It cost us $60.00 to stay one night. I will not stop here again. - EdNorm
Nice little RV park/campground located right off Interstate 75. Spacious sites for travel trailers. All sites are pull-thrus. Although firewood is for sale at the store, not every site has a fire ring. My other concern was that I was not informed that the dump station was out of service. I had to go across the road to another campground to dump. - GrandmaLee
We stayed for a week in a 38' fifth wheel. The site was only the length of the trailer, and we had to park partially in the street. There are lots of permanent RVs in the park. It does not appear that the park is being maintained fully as some sites had tape or indications not working. I backed my rig out from a pull through, when we left due to vehicles parking making the road narrow. AT&T service was strong with 4G. I likely will not return. - CarverFam
Older park with many long term campers but fairly well maintained. Most sewer sites are used by long term campers but the non-sewer sites are very good, level, long, and well spaced. Good electricity, water pressure, and Wi-Fi. A bargain for a short stop right off I-75. - PappaDee
Our 1st impression was so so. The office was closed (presently). A nice young lady greeted us and showed us to a spot. About every 3rd or 4th site sits a picnic table. There were fire rings about every 4th to 5th site. Most all sites were level. Most of the full hookup sites are occupied by year round folks. They seem to be mostly friendly. This campground has lots of trees, but yet also has some open areas. The grounds needed a good mowing. I saw at least 3 satellite dishes while I was there. There was one very friendly cat and several other cats roaming around the campground. The bathrooms were fairly clean. The laundry area had 2 machines of each and appeared to be in good repair. There was a small donut shop just a short walk away. The Walmart was just a short walk (about one half mile) away too. Noise from the road was minimal. The Wi-Fi worked well. There is not a pool or any playground equipment. Overall, this place is ok. For the price this place rocks! - mudhound
As noted before, this is an older park with old looking buildings but there were many positives. Good 50 amp electricity, good water pressure, Wi-Fi, long level gravel pull-through sites, and friendly staff. No one was in office but came immediately and led us to a site. The entrance drive has lots of potholes and the roads are dirt. If you don't need any amenities this is a good stopping place for a night or two at a reasonable price. We would come back - PappaDee

Great overnight stay. Quiet. Was met by owner who we followed into the site. They came to us to register. Very helpful! We have stayed here before and highly recommend it. - BTCruiser2004
You?ve been driving all day, it?s getting late, and you?re tired and desperate for a place to pull off for the night. Walnut Meadow is that kind of place. And that was our situation when we stopped. I rated it ?satisfactory? with that level of desperation in mind. It was after dark, and there was no one in the office when we pulled in. There were no registration forms or park maps, but just what appeared to be a locked night box for late arrivals. The only information was a hand written paper on the door that said, ?If you need assistance?? and had a phone number. I took it to be for emergencies or problems at the sites.
I continued in, expecting to pay in the morning as is the usual practice after hours in the off season. The park was unlighted, and there were no signs or directions. The roads were muddy and a mass of potholes. I crawled along at an idle, the RV bouncing and rocking all the way in. A short way in a woman ran out into the road waving and telling me to stop. She turned out to be the "manager", and I got a polite lecture on ?how it is done here?, and was told that ?everyone" knows that. Seems that she expects everyone to call her at any hour (yes, the number on the door) and took some pride in saying that she has to get up sometimes at 2 am. We?ve been to a lot of RV parks and have never encountered a policy like that.
In the morning it became apparent that the park is in tough shape, appeared that many or most of the occupants are long-term, staying in RVs that didn?t look road worthy. The term ?seedy? comes to mind. The utilities (pedestals and water fixtures) were in bad shape, and the sewer ?connection? was just a pipe at ground level covered by a flat rock. The office and other buildings were in tough shape too. I checked the electric to be sure it was within acceptable voltages and it was OK : 118. I didn?t risk hooking up to the water, and didn?t venture into the shower building, so I can?t rate them. If you can stay awake a little longer ? pass this one by. - Menno
