Only stayed here 1 night as a stopping point b/w PA & FL. Park was nice. Went to clubhouse and played checkers with the kids for a bit. Didn't use the showers but saw them; bathrooms and showers were clean. Liked the view of the roller coasters and slides; of course, kids wanted to go. Sites were of avg spacing; probably a bit on the narrow side really, along with the roadways.
The guy across from us got in late and didn't seem experienced navigating with his 5th wheel; since the areas were narrow and it was getting dark, he smashed the cab of his truck with the trailer. Overall, nice campground with lots of shade, families, and activity. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Travel Trailer.

A nice park. New paved roads and pads. Our site had some dirt where a patio should be, but overall well cared for with a very nice and helpful staff. We stayed here for Carowinds so being right next to the park was great! They have a new shower facility in the campground that was clean and private for users. Each shower has its own room. Roads are narrow, but definitely fine for one way traffic. The only issue would be if someone were going the opposite direction. Our visit was peaceful and pleasant. Our site was a back-in that was fairly easy to get in to, but the pull through sites are definitely the easiest in the park. All sites looked level while walking except the ones near the store/pool used mainly by tents. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We had made reservations for Carowinds so we could stop on our way home for Florida. The staff upon arrival was very friendly and courteous. We pulled into our campsite got hooked up and went to the park. We were waiting on friends. They called and said they were hooked as well. The next morning they woke up with their camper completely loaded with ants. And I mean loaded. Now, I know you can get them anywhere camping but we found out this was a known problem. That came straight from the management. They thought it was under control. The ants were so bad that they got into their food and laundry. So he went back to the manager and they put them up in a cabin which I thought was very nice. But the problem I had was that they actually put another camper in the same spot within the hour. Unacceptable. Probably will not stay again, as we found out we had ants as well. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Motorhome.

Other than as a base camp for Carowinds and Carolina Harbor, I do not understand the lure of this campground. We stayed multiple weeks on and off while waiting to move into our house, and it's not great. The laundry room contains 2 washers and 2 dryers for the entire campground which is completely unacceptable for the size of it. Not to mention the laundry room and bathrooms are dirty most of the time with sand and dirt all over the floor. It's obvious with the trash around that employees do not groom the sites after visitors leave and prior to the next guest's arrival. The campers were rude and walked through occupied campsites to get to the pool, office, and the front of the park. Watch out if you're in site 195 because it becomes the short cut for all those rude people. And those guests who live here tend to park on the road making it difficult to get a rv in and out. Only if we need to camp close to Charlotte again will we stay here. I would be remiss not to say that the staff are very friendly and helpful. In a pinch, they helped us find a place to stay. It's not the staff's fault that management does not require cleanliness. And it's not their fault that the campers here don't know camping etiquette 101. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Motorhome.

We used this campground as a base for 9 days while visiting family in Charlotte and it's proximity to the Interstate made it convenient for getting around. There are plenty of trees and it's a pretty park. Our site was an end pull thru #193 and it was plenty long for our 40 ft motorhome and tow vehicle. The sites are narrow, but each has a built in BBQ and picnic table on the grass between the sites. We were here before the Memorial Day weekend, which will begin the busy season for this campground and I don't think we would want to be here when it's full. Interior roads are very narrow which would make it difficult to maneuver if you were trying to leave in your car and an RV was trying to find their site. Bathrooms were clean, but the laundry with only 2 washers and 2 dryers is a joke for a park this size and it was filthy. So we would use this park again, but only in the off season. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Motorhome.

very nice campground. Lots of trees which blocked satellite service except on a couple sites. Also no Cable so you are restricted to the overhead channels. Also if you want a campfire you must rent the fire ring for your site. Sites are very level and easy in, out is a little difficult as some of the turns to get out if you stay in the first row and have a large motorhome are difficult and to drive around you better hope someone else is trying to leave or you will end up face to face with them. Amusement park next door and shuttles run every 30 minutes. Will definitely stay here again if in the area but will ask not to be in the first row of pull thru's.

Overall, the value is not inclusive unless you are visiting the theme park. 56.00 per night is steep, especially when you factor in the tight location of the campsites. There is maybe 15 feet between each site, and little to no foliage for shade. The sites and access roads are very tight, for a long truck and trailer combo the "drive-through" aspect of the site we stayed in was questionable. I would recommend the outer back in sites for longer trailers. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites and roads are paved. Picnic Table and BBQ present. Sites are very long and you do not need to unhook if you choose not to. Grass/weeds between sites and some are thinly seeded and ares are muddy in rain. If the paved part of the site was a little wider the mud would not matter.
Very pretty with Lots of trees once you get into the park. Theme park was closed, so it was quiet. Friendly staff. Would stay again for sure. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Motorhome.
We only stayed one night. I would think the theme park would be a blast. They have water slide rides too.

Very nice campground next to Carowinds Amusement park. We stayed overnight and it was pretty empty so it felt like we had the campground to our selves. There was a lot of construction at the amusement park so a lot of dirt piles and big trucks on Catawba Trace. We had a nice long and wide FHU pull-thru. Hookups were in the middle. Water pressure was weak and it didn't get any stronger when we took off our pressure regulator. I hope that it's just due to the construction around us. Internal roads and RV sites are asphalt, very level. Lots of trees for shade but well away from the road and trimmed back so big rigs won't run into any low branches. Wifi was great but then, the park was nearly empty. No cable. No off leash dogpark but plenty of places to walk the dogs around the perimeter. It's well-lit at night. I made reservations and paid online so check-in was quick. The interstate is a couple miles away, easy access. We would likely stay here again. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Motorhome.
Easy access from I-77 so even if you're not going to Carowinds, this campground is great for overnight.

We were looking for a campground close to Charlotte with full hookups and large sites, and Carowinds fit the bill perfectly. The sites were actually a little larger than I'd expected, with plenty of grass between sites and trees throughout the campground. It rained during most of our stay, and some sites were more flooded than others... in fact, the camping area of the site we were assigned was under a couple inches of water so they let us pick a different site which worked out better. The park is dog-friendly and we found plenty of places to walk ours. The campground has an RV section, tent section, and cabin section, all slightly separated from each other. It's a short drive to many stores and restaurants in the area. The free WiFi worked quite well for us, but being December the campground was mostly empty which likely contributed to the good performance. Verizon and AT&T also worked well. There was some noticeable highway noise all day long but it was not too bad. We'd stay here again when visiting Charlotte. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Motorhome.
The campground is literally on the NC/SC border (the state border divides Carowinds in half). Gas in SC is around 30 cents cheaper per gallon, so it pays to figure out which direction to drive when exiting the campground to fill up!

The campground has been partially upgraded this year. We stayed in the upgraded section of the campground. The sites are newly paved with upgraded hookups and new charcoal grills. A new shower house facility has been added to the upgraded section of the campground. We were very happy with what has been done with the upgrades. The campground is next door to Carowinds Amusement Park, free shuttles are available as are discounted tickets. We were highly satisfied with our stay and recommend this campground to others. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Travel Trailer.
Carowinds Amusement Park is located next door. It is definitely worth visiting as they have added several great new attractions over the past few years with more on the way. Carowinds is a seasonal amusement park, so make sure that you check their operating hours when planning your visit. Camp Wilderness Resort is open year round.

Stayed in the tent section and the restrooms were always dirty or need of repair. Rv section looked a little cramped and some of the tent sites were too. Nice pool and clubhouse. Good if you are going to the park since they have shuttles. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice park. Sound from associated theme park is not a problem. Staff responded in a very professional manner to my request to add road signs to assist campers entering so as to not get lost in the crowd. They created and installed signs within days. It is obvious they care when approached properly. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Motorhome.
Do not forget to visit the "Miracle on the Hudson." The plane is on display at the Carolina Aviation Museum. Very impressive.

This is a very nice park but, if noise bothers you, I wouldn't recommend it since it's directly in the flight path of planes taking off and landing at the nearby airport. We only spent one night while traveling through and really didn't notice the noise with the windows closed and the furnace running. The roads were paved and we had no problem getting our 40' trailer around the camp. The pull thru sites were large, paved, and level and mostly shaded. The person taking reservations was located somewhere out of the area and was not able to give me directions and we could not reach anyone at the front office after many phone calls. We finally had to call the reservations number again and she was able to give us GPS coordinates. She assured me there would be someone at the office for us to check in but everything was locked up tight. Since we had already paid by credit card, we just went ahead and took a spot and figured we would take care of business in the morning. Again in the morning, there was no one around so we had to call "security" to finally get the office opened up for us to do the paperwork. There are not a lot of campgrounds along I-77 in this area so we would probably stay here again but we do wish they were a little more efficient. We camped at Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
