This was our 2nd stay at this campground. This time we requested a site with full hookups over the W/E sites in the bottom. We arrived on Thursday at 9PM for a 4-day stay but we tried to call the office but found out that it was closed at 5PM ( MON - THU ) so we could not confirm our site before arriving. We found our packet with a map in the black mailbox in front of the office showing how to get to our site (site #1). We have a 35 foot rig with 2 slides so the sites are really close to each other in this section. This site has shade trees and a grassy corner giving you more room in front of the camper. The WiFi is very spotty and the power will brown-out causing the A/C unit to cycle during peak times. My portable satellite dish had a clear view of the southern size with a good signal strength ( 98% ). My kids loved the jumping pillow, mini golf and the pool. From this site, I could watch them as they ride their bikes from one place to another and feel safe. They had a DJ on that Friday night at the lodge which was across from our site. We could sit outside and listen to the music. That was an added bonus. We like this campground since is very close to Seagrove and the NC Zoo. We camped at Zooland Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.
The RV sites are not level and with 3 bags of Lynx, could not level Motorhome. The sites were mud and gravel. The laundry is filthy and when it rains there is a "v" trough in center of room that makes water run under dyers. Not safe. The store is only open when owner is there so not very often. The fire pits were dirty. We are staying here a week. There is no park manager in mid afternoon to morning. We tried calling owner/manager at her emergency number but always got answering machine, no return call. Did not know they had WiFi as it is under "Banjo", the park's old name. Banjo1, 2 and 3 When we discovered it there was very poor reception. Cannot enter pool without wrist band, and never received one. We discovered this rule after manager/owner left for day. Website said Saturday breakfast no longer being offered, we discovered it had been served when it was too late. Stayed because having mail sent to their address.
Lots of amenities for kids and families.
We stayed thru Coast to Coast membership. Will follow through with them, We are on a five month vacation seeing the USA and glad to say most parks have been great.
They advertise that "Noisy or vicious pets are not allowed. If any animal is unruly, the Guest/Member must take it out of the resort immediately." Great Dane attacked a small dog, and their website "contract" was not followed through. We did not feel safe as this Great Dane dog was 2 spaces away. For lack of follow through to the parks written rules I would not recommend this park to any animal lover. We camped at Zooland Family Campground in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Very unlevel. Very dirty. No security. No park hosts.
We stayed Mother's day weekend for a 2 nights. Pool wasn't open yet but park has a playground, jumping pillow and mini golf to keep little ones busy. No Cable or Wifi. No escort getting to site once checked in but Campground was clean and well maintained. Mini golf needs some TLC. Fishing was ok. Site was a pull through with full hookups. Fairly level but a bit close together for a big rig (33ft w/2 slides). We would camp there again. Activities limited but owner tried hard to make us happy. We camped at Zooland Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park with shaded gravel sites. Many sites available but we were assigned one just in from a road, but not too much night traffic. Staff was friendly and grounds were well groomed. We stayed a week. We camped at Zooland Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

If you're planning on visiting this CG before June 2014, you'll have a 10 mile detour that you must follow. When making our reservations, they failed to mention this. Luckily, we followed the signs and made it there. After arriving and setting up, maybe we weren't so lucky after all. We had two adjacent sites. One was muddy to the point of the leveling jacks sinking into the ground. It was also 4 feet away from the trailer next to them. I asked the lady in the office why we were placed in such poor sites when there were dozens of nicer sites. She said the sites we were on were usually fine. Usually? If making reservations, try asking which site you will be on and see what they say. I moved to a site for better satellite reception because they don't have cable and March Madness was on. It was very un-level. The sites are narrow and our neighbor's sewer drain was 6 feet away from our trailer. Luckily, that site remained unoccupied. Wi-Fi is so weak that I had to use my cell phone as a hot spot. I spoke with other campers who also mentioned that nothing was said to them about the detour. This could be a nice CG if they leveled the sites, spaced them out more, and taught their employees something about customer service. We won't bother staying here again. We camped at Zooland Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
I've camped here on two previous occasions and this was the worst visit for me. As others have mentioned, the place is a mudpit whenever it rains. There is standing water all over the water/electric sites. The bathrooms were very dirty and the one by the store was closed. With an 85% full park, that's not good. The Wi-Fi was useless and there was no a/c in any of the buildings. Guess I've always stayed when it was cooler. On the positive side, they did have a DJ and fireworks, staff was friendly, and the store was well stocked. We camped at Zooland Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Our main complaint about this campground is that the sites are pretty unlevel. When we checked in, we were told what site they wanted us on. After about 20 minutes of trying to move the motorhome to get a good level reading, we went back to the office and requested another site. The site we requested was one we had driven around and spotted; one that looked more level. Since this was during the week and they had allot of vacant sites, they said we could move. The office personnel were very accommodating. This site also was quite un-level. (We are not new to this setting up business, by the way.) Otherwise, the campground has several good things - a pond, a river , trails, a little golf course, playground, and a very nice green space for walking. There is allot of road noise if you are in the sites with 50 amps. We camped at Zooland Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice little park and very clean. Many good points but several bad. Wi-Fi is a joke with the response to fixing it, "It's always like that." Four washers and four dryers. Two washers work. One dryer works. It sits right up against a country road with very loud traffic to the point where at night you have to have all windows closed. We camped at Zooland Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate quoted is Coast to Coast and we stayed 4 nights. Campground has lots of amenities for adults and children. Check with office for road detour information. Campground roads need some repairs. Many uneven sites, and not much gravel on some. Office personnel are very friendly and try to be helpful. Decent store in office. Quiet surroundings, especially with the road detour. The Wi-Fi worked great for me most of the time, but not so good for my husband (we were near the lodge). Very nice lodge with small and large room for activities and a huge deck. Would give this a 10 with good roads and level sites. We camped at Zooland Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This is our first trip to Zooland but definitely will not be our last. A great campground. Owners are making an effort to keep it clean, neat, and friendly. During our check-in I changed my site to a full hook up site. Water/Elec sites were too wet for our taste, they were very accommodating. The extras are too numerous to mention. Close to Zoo and Asheboro. We camped at Zooland Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We returned to Zooland Family Campground for our annual Halloween Camping Trip. The Campground was completely full, so we camped in the tenting area (with water and electricity). The campground activities for the weekend were enjoyable: pumpkin carving, costume contest, trailer trick-or-treating, haunted hayride, and a dance. The hayride did leave something to be desires and the DJ needed more diversity in the music. The new owners have really made some improvements over the past year. The bathrooms were redone and very clean (we marked down our rating because the women's shower did not have hot water). The putt-putt was nicely refurbished, as were the playground and jump pillow. The kids truly enjoyed the activities and play time. Again, I highly recommend Zooland for people looking for a weekend get away, a visit to the NC Zoo, or for a Holiday Activity weekend. We camped at Zooland Family Campground in a Tent Trailer.

The manager of this park is super helpful and very pleasant. The campground has many things for the kids to do. There is a fishing pond, jumping pillow, playground, basketball court, pool and a nice sized game room. It rained almost the entire time we were there so our children only got to use the basketball court for a short time and they also went to the game room. They said it was better than any of the other campgrounds we had gone to. We stayed in a full hook up site and weren't able to get Wi-Fi but we were able to pick up about 16 television stations with our antenna. The roads are gravel so my kids were also able to ride their bicycles during times of no rain. Overall my family loved the campground despite the rain and we will be returning soon.
