This is a beautiful, well maintained Campground, very peaceful, right on the Contentnea river. The park is operated by the local police department and is very secure. I wish we could have stayed longer. The walking trail around the grounds is nice. It was a little confusing when we first got here. We thought one of the walking trails was an interior road. Try that in a 46 foot 5th wheel on a stormy day. - LBell690

This is a small park in a small town. There are 10 full hookup sites with 50 amps. The road is paved and the sites are grass/gravel. There is a trailer with 3 air conditioned bathrooms and 2 outside shower stalls. The park is run by the city and you pay at the police department. We set up and drove the car to the police department, which was a short distance away. The police are in and out of the park on a regular basis. Again, there are no amenities but there is total peace and quiet. There are benches, tables and fire pits at each site. Our antenna picked up about 25 channels. We crossed a railroad track near the entrance but never heard a train in our 4 day stay. The traffic in and out of the park is very light, mostly people fishing in the river next to the park. This the best campground that we found in this area. We would stay here again. - Michael47

We stayed just one night with friend that just bought a "new" used 5th wheel. We paid our $10.00 per site at the police department across the creek and was told to just pick whatever sites we wanted. They place was spotless and the sites were spacious. There were some sites that had updated fire rings with benches and new picnic tables but they were taken. There were large trash cans to place the trash. From what another camper told us, if you pay $5.00 they send someone to unlock the restroom for you. Not sure if that was for the entire stay or just the one time, but we didn't need it. Not much to do around the area but a nice place just to camp. - D Maier

I've never written a review before and have stayed in tons of campground across the US (and have never left one without staying) but this was such a bad experience I had to warn others. Owner called to say we should go to directly to site since they would not be there. Told we should pull in to site then unhook toad. We confirmed our length (38') and were told again that there was plenty of space to pull in and then unhook. Fortunately we did not listen because we never would have been able to get toad straight enough to unhook and would have been stuck since we would not have been able to go forward or backwards. They should have known better! Site was pull-in and front was facing workshop instead of the pretty pond (why would they do that?). Site also had gravestones of 3 dogs on it. Water hookup was in ground and when we lifted cover the water spigot was swarming with dozens of roaches. Called to ask to switch sites but owner wouldn't even though there were empty sites. We said we were leaving since we couldn't use water and he asked where we were from. Said FL so we are used to bugs but this was not acceptable. He said "that explains it." No apology or offer to fix problem-only that he was charging us for 1 night. As we were driving on the only road out of the campground the top of our RV was badly scraped by a low hanging branch that was unavoidable. They really don't seem to understand the length and height concerns of a Class A motor home. We called again to say tree needs trimming and again no apology or concern on his part. We asked what he meant by "that explains it." He said everyone from FL is difficult. Didn't think we were difficult at all since we really wanted to stay the 3 nights we had planned but were not willing to stick our hands into a roach nest. Pretty place but owner is incredibly nasty, rude and obnoxious and site was a roach infested pet cemetery. Everyone should avoid this place but those from FL should absolutely boycott it. - Lisa305

Let's be clear, this isn't a "resort". This is a beautiful piece of property, with full hookups and giants oaks for shade (on some sites). If you're looking for the bell & whistles, look elsewhere. This property offers great location (just outside of the busy part of Greenville), great service (owners are on property), good value (water pressure was great). We stayed for 5 days while visiting our daughter at ECU. Perfect location to scoot back and forth between her apartment and the motorhome. Great having electric because it's hot in NC (we're from New England)! Owners came by a couple of times to check on us. Other campers were friendly. We had a campfire one night with wood supplied by a fellow camper. One road around the whole campground/property, easy to navigate. I did read a previous review and we had quite the opposite experience (friendly owner, and no problem with roaches...though there were some crickets around). Very happy with the place and we'll be back! - CDG

We stayed here for an ECU football game. We arrived at around 9:30pm and were met by the owner on his golf cart. He showed us to the campsite and helped us get organized. He came by again later to make sure we were all set up and happy. I spoke to him again on Saturday and mentioned there was a slight washout from recent rains. He said he would come in after we left and smooth it out. I wasn't complaining but he was very concerned with how happy we were. I'm making additional reservations. - archerspoon

We stayed here just one night. We were in town for a birthday party, and we have young children. The owners were the best! We had an issue with our car dolly the day we were leaving and both owners helped us for at least an hour, and were so pleasant to talk to and deal with. They were wonderful. The campground was relatively small, however, this did not take away from the experience. The grounds were clean and spacious, and the campground was quiet with very little traffic. This is truly the owner run campground experience you look for each time. Friendly and helpful, clean and roomy! We would suggest this campground to anyone looking for a place to stay in the area, or just looking for a place to camp on the way to your final destination! - Mhswinson

This is a nice little spot to stay if you are in the Greenville area. We stayed here over the weekend for an ECU football game. We were arriving late Friday night and the owner met us and escorted us to the site. It was a brand new pull-thru he had just finished and everything was very nice. The owner apologized that there wasn't any grass or plants since he had just gotten the certification from the County that week. I told him I understood and that everything was okay. He and his father were usually around the campground or were available at his house across the street. All the sites have 50amp electric but he will loan you an adapter if you need it. They are also all in the open with no trees around. Water was good and had good pressure. It did rain on us a little so it got a bit muddy but I know the site was new and really aren't complaining. I will stay here again. - archerspoon

There are very few options in this area and we found this park to suit our needs and close to Greenville. Access roads are paved and accessible for big rigs. Camp is gravel based pull thrus for easy access in an open area near local farm fields. Currently ten sites with plans to expand. The utilities are placed well and water, electric and sewer all functioned fine. Nothing fancy, no facilities, but clean and but the owners are wonderful people. Wide open skies, great reception for over the air antenna and no obstructions for satellite. If you are looking for a clean, quiet place to park this is perfect. - which2

I love this place! I need to be here long term for work and I know I will be very happy here. Grounds are kept in impeccable shape; beautiful landscaping. I feel like I'm in a wide open field. I look out my window and see... nothing but grass and trees. For the RVs that are here, they are very nice. Great amenities, including playground for kids, beautiful pool (where you can actually swim laps), clubhouse with arcade games, billiards, air hockey, tv, Wii, organized activities. A creek (with fishing) borders the campground - I haven't visited there yet. BUT WHAT IMPRESSED ME MOST is how accommodating and helpful people are here. We first had a problem with our rig and then with our truck, rendering us pretty much helpless. I can't say enough how many folks came and offered to help us in any way possible. - cherylbrv

The resort is mostly filled with permanents (weekend retreats). 10 to 12 spaces for transient RVs on a grassy ridge. W/S/E. Laundry room machines need repair. Bathhouse very clean. Nice pool. Staff is exceptionally friendly and accommodating. Convenient to Little Washington. - tom&kathryn

Great place for an overnight stay, just outside of Washington and a short drive to historic Bath. Staff was very cordial. No cable service. A lot of very well kept permanent sites around and along the river. Pool was very nice with large shady pavilion with tables and chairs. Trash pickup twice a day. - g peter

Great county park on the banks of the Neuse. Half of the spots have fantastic river views. Some spots offer shade, others were open. About half of the sites had sewer. Also a dump station on site. The nature center and planetarium were closed due to recent Hurricane Matthew. Bath house was small -- only one men's room and one women's (both with their private shower). Great park for kids, as well as a kidde train ride ($). No hiking trails, but easy to walk along river bank. Close to Kinston activities (such as CSS Neuse), restaurants, and shopping. - ricks99

Great park. WiFi wiped out by hurricane Matthew but I am sure they are working on it. The campgrounds are rustic but usually quiet for an inner city park. There is a huge playground for children as well as a Nature Center and Planetarium. Wonderful people, wonderful park. We will be back if travels bring us this direction again. - LBell690

Small city campground offering full hookups. Great park right on the Neuse River. Campsites are large and shaded, some right on the river. Staff is very helpful. Free museum and nature center on grounds. Very quiet campground. Will definitely return. - KrisNC

Park is okay. Pool is great but really packed on weekends. There is a separate area for full timers and waterways to the bay. Store is well equipped for mi or items. Our site was difficult to get into and full of tree roots. The escort let us take the next spot over. - User2522

We were not impressed! We have stayed before under different management and although new management is trying, it is a long way from good. Lots are very close, ranging from sunny/open exposures to some shade. Site surface is a concrete pad with dirt, sand and grass. There is a picnic table.
When we arrived, we had advised them of a 3-4 month stay. When we went to pay for our third month, we had been advised that the site had been rented out to someone else the next day. Initially an alternative site was not offered but after some strong words and 6 hours later, we were given a different site and an apologetic discount for the inconvenience. (This was the Thursday of the July 4th weekend-just try finding another park.)
We were religiously forgotten for sewer pump outs, even though regularly added to the list.
We also found out that we were moved because a full timer on the hill (permanent sites) complained about the noise of the truck (HDT) and really wanted us gone from the park. New management does not run the park. The hill residents on Paradise Island do, as well as the maintenance manager who oversees the pumping, etc.
The weekly Saturday night DJ or Band is a little noisey. Much better when it is once a month. Some full timers actually go elsewhere for Saturday night so they can sleep.
The store staff and housekeeping staff are great. Still major flooding with lots of rain.
This park is not friendly to HDTs (converted tractor trailer type trucks for pulling 5th wheels). Will not return: will park at Walmart first. - witchey1

Under even newer management since our last visit. Much cleaner, but still no scattered trash cans- just the parks dumpsters which have been increased in number. Security has been increased (a good thing). Roads are still dirt and could probably be upgraded to gravel but dirt is still good. - witchey1
