Leaving Rollingview State Park at Falls Lake, NC. Beautiful park, nice sized sites with W&E. Separate pump out station. Gravel sites. All have picnic table and large fire pit with cooking grate. Couple of fishing piers, playgrounds, beach, trails, clean facilities. Only a few other folks in the entire place! - 2bounders

State park, sites are spaced away from other sites. Most sites are difficult to back into and not very level. No alcohol allowed. No sewer hook-up. Peaceful, not many campers probably because it was 90+ each day. The lake is huge, you need a motorized boat to take advantage of it. Park has a marina and offers canoe, kayak and SUP rental but nothing motorized. - Bburgbrewer

$18 per night was for a packed sand pull-though site with 30-amp electric and water. Our site, #B002 in the Rolling View campground, was shaded by large trees. The site had a composite picnic table and fire ring. The campground was built when large RVs were not being made and everyone camped in pop-ups or tents. No matter which way you enter the site, the approach is steep. If the picnic table was repositioned, you might be able to position a large RV on the spacious area so that it would be level. It was pleasantly quiet during our stay even over the weekend when many families arrived. The road through the campground is asphalt and wide. The park access was unmanned when we arrived but a park ranger came around later to check us in and advise of their policies, which include no alcohol. Our site was by a stream that really rushed after the several thunderstorms we had. There are many activities available, which you can find listed on their website. The campground is centrally between Durham and Raleigh where any amenity is available. AT&T and Verizon cell signals were low but usable. We received 21 digital over-the-air TV stations and many radio stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

This park was pretty, quiet and well kept. Rangers drive by multiple times a day. Sites in loop 3 are spacious, secluded and well maintained. Has gravel sites, fairly level with easy hookups. Includes fire ring, picnic table and lamp hook. Nice large lake with boat ramps. Do note that they have dynamic pricing for camp sites and add an extra $3 a day fee to your charges which made it a bit pricey ($27 weekdays, $30 weekend). Water/elec no sewer. Dump station on my area has 2 spots so plan ahead for busy weekend. Had really fast Verizon data here (could work and stream movies), got a decent amount of antenna TV channels. I recommend site 99. Really nice size! - Katina

First time at a NC State Park. Went in a 36 ft MH with wife and 2 girls (8 and 13). Highlights below.
Check in was fast/easy. Were not made to feel welcome. Not a bad experience, just there - minimal attempt to be helpful/interactive. Could have been better from them.
Sites do not have sewer - need to use dump station. Easy and not busy.
Roads were paved and in very good shape. Paths to bathrooms were paved as well. Very nice area - lots of trees, large lake, a couple of paths. Surrounding area is nice as well. Close to Wake Forest and Raleigh. Some very nice things to do in both places - including a free museum in Raleigh that was awesome for the kids (NC Museum of Natural Sciences).
Fair use at the campground over the weekend, but during the week very few people were there. Sites are large and private. Note that our site (73) had a slope to it. We chose it since it had a view of the lake. For our equipment (36 ft) it was a hassle getting level. Had to reposition a few times and extend jacks to the limit (with blocks). The sites across from ours were nice and large and level. Would have been a better choice for larger vehicles. If the reservation site says it is not level - it is not.
Bathrooms were a bit rustic - but it is a state park. Met my expectations. Have been in others that were more modern, but it is what I expected. Usable and clean.
Overall a very nice park, nice facilities, just be careful if you have a large vehicle and need a large site. We would go there again if in the area. - T.Butter

What a beautiful campground! Large private, shaded sites, level, nice yard area. Wonderful beach (2 actually) for swimming/ boating/fishing. Great hiking no trails and nice paved roads for bicking. Very family friendly. One FYI: the gate locks at 10:00 pm (no access in or out) so you must either be in by then or leave car at gate and walk to site. Would have been a 10 if it had sewer hookups. Still, very worth the visit! We'd definitely come back. - Jeni

First time camping here although it is less than 30 minutes from home. There are just a few sites that will accommodate a popup camper. We stayed on site 22 which is large enough to work for us. Fairly quiet campground other than the airplanes coming and going into nearby RDU. Overall a nice campground if you can live without electrical hook ups. - jrackley

Nice park but not designed for campers. There are 2 maybe 3 sites that can accommodate a trailer. There are no hook ups and they close the gate at 2000 until 0600. Nice park to visit and maybe if you camp in a tent it's fine but not for a camper. No alcohol allowed in the park if that's a consideration for you. - tx_rambler

This place is a dump! The internet photos are misleading. If you don't mind old car and RV parts laying around everywhere, sloppy looking trailers, and an overall trashy look....then you'll be ok with it. At $32 a night it is much higher than state parks. I left as soon as possible! Definitely don't bring children here. - R Moutz

I stayed here 3 months while working in Durham. I am guessing that about 75% of these sites are full of RVs that don't ever go anywhere. The manager is helpful and patrols the park endlessly. I felt very safe here. Besides the sites that have "permanent residents" the shorter term sites seem to cater to patients of Duke who come from all over the country for medical care. There are no showers. Sites are NOT level. Washers and dryers are ineffective. Electric is included. Cable and Internet are available through Time Warner Cable (ugh). This is really not much more than a trailer park. This place serves if you have things to do in Durham... It is NOT "fun camping" and certainly not an RV "resort". The rate is figured at 420/month divided by 30 days. - TravelRNFullTimer

Others call it quirky, I thought we were smack dab in Deliverance. Many people live here in their trailers and sites and some of them appear questionable but are harmless evidently as we had no problems while there. We would leave most of the day and return in evening. The on site manager, is extremely helpful and watches over everything so it was safe despite the shady appearing surroundings including the trashy looking mobile home park on the hillside above. We stayed for a week while in the area because it was the only RV place we could find. Spaces are shady and it was difficult to get DISH reception in the woods however we could pick up some local channels. Spaces are mostly rickety and uneven but the jacks leveled it out. It is surprisingly quiet. Some people say they stay here for months on end. For us, it was OK. This area of North Carolina really should get on board and develop RV sites however it seems they prefer hotels. Birchwood takes only cash or checks and it is cheaper to stay for the week so we did so. - Pat and Jerry

The Park was a pleasant surprise. The RV campground is very basic, a full hook up on a gravel grass spot. Not a problem to get to or back into a spot. There are trees, but mostly open. It was quiet and nice for our stay at the horse show on the grounds. No bathrooms here at RV campsite, no fire ring or picnic tables. - kimme

What a great find! Extra large back in spaces with full hookups. No wifi or cable, but we picked up many local TV channels with our antenna. Great Verizon signal so no wifi was ok. Park staff were friendly and professional. Security came by regularly. They were preparing for the state fair so the area was freshly landscaped and everything looked great. We will stay here again for sure. - Arizona Nancy

We needed a place close to RDU airport. We weren't expecting much, but ended up enjoying our time there. According to their website, the max stay is 14 days, but if they have openings, they'll let you stay (we were there a month). Someone mentioned that the gravel made for lots of dust, but they had a water truck that went through every day of our stay. FHU at $30/day was very reasonable, especially as I ran two A/Cs non stop. - DaBlairs
