Very friendly staff. MANY full-timers, and it appears some of them have been there for decades. That said, there didn't seem to be any favorites by the staff, nor intimidation of short-term visitors. Dusty. Grass is kept mowed. Amenities are nice, clean, well-maintained, but of older design. Water pressure in the men's shower was very strong. Sites and roads are gravel, but level. Showers/restrooms/laundry are NOT a short walk from the camper sites. There is also a nice playground for children, but it's also a hike from most campsites. It's named Movietown because several movies (e.g. A Time To Kill, O Brother Where Art Thou?, etc.) were filmed at least in part in the Canton area, and many support staff trailer'd at this RV park (wardrobe, makeup, props, etc.). Even the owner had a bit part in one of the movies according to the park manager. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sites are very long and level. We have a 40' MH and found we had enough room to leave our tow vehicle hooked up. Lots of room between sites. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good for an overnight stop. Most sites were not level and it was simply come and find a stop and hook up. No real service after 5 p.m. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed overnight. Called ahead due to planned late arrival (~6pm). We were not advised of rate or discounts available. This caused me to pay full price even though we are Good Sam. Road to park is rough asphalt and narrow. Park is OK for overnight. Site on first row was not level, rear wheels almost off the ground. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Almost all sites are pull throughs so it is convenient for those just looking to stop one night, as we did. There may be amenities for those staying longer but they weren't near the main camping area. There are many long term residents but the park was clean and quiet when we came through in December, 2015. We camped at Movietown in a motorhome. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stayed again because they are the only place around. WiFi is good as the power and water pressure. Grass between sites. Price is great. Did not find any bathrooms close to the parking area. Gravel roads. The road coming into the park is getting worse and could use repair but that is the county road I guess. Some lots have trees. Pretty quite except in the mornings when all the full time people go to work. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Overall the park was a good place to stay, the WiFi was the best we have encountered on our travels and the value of $22/night was excellent this was for a Full Service Site including 50 amp service. the only draw back is there is a high number of permanent residence with some of the units looking good and others not so good. We would stay here again if we ever came through this way. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Not a bad park. You better call ahead because most of the park are permanent campers. Elect and water was good. Was pretty quite. The camping sites could use a little leveling. Most of the park is gravel and the road into the park is tight if another big unit is coming the other way. The 2 speed bumps are quite high and bounce you all over the place even at 1 mph. The site next to me had dog droppings all over it and you had to watch when hooking up your water. The price was good. Not sure if I'd stay again if in the area. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Check-in was very quick and efficient. This may be the best place to stay in the area. Sites are roomy and the layout of the campground is good except for the unlevel sites. Wi-Fi was slow to very slow, but we were usually able to get our basic online stuff done. Staff and campers were exceptionally friendly. We were treated to a nearby hot air balloon rally (we counted 15). Downtown Canton has a lot of neat old buildings. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is filled with day workers and seasonals/permanents. There weren’t very many RV sites available for RVers looking for an overnight stop. The roads and sites are gravel and the sites were very unlevel front to back. The majority of the sites were pull-throughs. Drive in, pick a site and get set up, and then go back to the office to pay. The spacing between the sites was decent. There were no picnic tables or fire rings. This is a basic RV park and OK for an overnight stop as long as you can deal with the front to back slope of the sites. We were in the back of the park and couldn’t get their Wi-Fi to work for us. Our nightly rate of $24 was the Good Sam rate. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Basic park. Pick your own space and let office know. Appears to have a number of permanant spaces. Nice park away from highway. Good overnight spot. Would stay again. Good Sam rate. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Motorhome.

Gravel roads with very uneven spots. The park is full of workers or people/families living in the park. No one was in the office, but we were pleasantly surprised to find the Good Sam rate posted with the envelopes to put payment through the door. Wi-Fi worked great! Very few spots are available for transients which is a shame, because the park is in a perfect location. We camped at Movietown RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
