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. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here to be close to family. The park is very large and has a lot of seasonal campers. Easy access to the Interstate. Very easy in and out of the park. They assigned us site B-4, but it was very tight. The gentleman that escorted to our site knew we would not fit, so we asked to be moved to B-5. That was not a problem. The campground was pretty empty because it was so early in the season. I am not sure how easy it would have been to be moved if the campground was fuller. Our site was grass and pine needle covered and large tree roots, but level. Good electricity and water pressure. There is a lot to do in the area. New Bern, NC is about 35 minutes. Very historic. Rocky Mount is a little over an hour drive. The Prime Smokehouse downtown is very good. Greenville is close, Sam Jones BBQ is some of the best around. If in the area again, we would probably stay here. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Good sized park, very woodsy. Store staff friendly and polite, management abrupt and sometimes rude. Park was not as well kept as it was during a stay same time in 2013. Litter, dead limbs hanging in trees, and not all animal owners were responsible for pickup. Several low sites that flood easily--poor drainage. Probably due to wetness, lots of insects--mosquitoes and fleas. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice park but their roads are horrible. They have a security gate and a very nice entrance but then after we checked in, we had to go down dirt, pothole roads to get to our site. We will not return here again. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
This campsite is terrible. If I could have given it a zero I would have done so. I booked this site some months before for one night in May and paid in full. Arrived at 6:05 pm and found campground closed. Tried using button on barrier to call someone, but no response. It turns out they close up shop at 5pm. Whilst doing this, a truck drove up, opened the barrier with a card and drove in. Another camper spotted our plight and let us in with his card. He pointed out the truck which had gone in was actually a camp employee. Our Good Samaritan pointed out he frequently had to let campers in who arrived after the management went home at 5pm. Notice though, the website claims they are open until 8pm. We parked up on one of the few pitches which was not flooded, and drove out next morning, the place still closed. Clearly the security is also very lax, as nobody checked up on us at any time. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
OK park. Very pretty setting. Lots of trees. Not much chance of satellite TV but antenna worked good for local channels. No one at entry gate so we had to call somewhere and they opened the gate remotely. Then drive down a long driveway with several brutal speed bumps. The gal in the office was friendly and young and seemed to be more interested in the conversation between 2 guys at the next counter than in checking us in. Told us our site number and waved her arm around in the direction we were supposed to go. No park map, no paperwork at all. We were assigned a spot in the "D" row. We found it OK but had to stop and scratch our heads for a moment trying to decide the best way to pull in. It was a pull through, but there are so many trees in that row. We had to pull across the back end of the site next to us. If someone had been parked there, not sure how we would get parked. That row is right next to a stagnant pond that is covered with furry algae and some kind of bug had hatched and totally enveloped the coach and our Jeep. We literally had to swat our way in and out of the vehicles. The next day we asked to move. Another person at the counter gave us several empty spots to pick from. Moved to the "B" row and no bugs. Not much to do in the area unless you are into boating and/or fishing. Would stay here again for an overnight. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

Rate is special per week for Thousand Trails members. Very friendly staff. Season does not start until mid April, so pools were not open and campground was somewhat uncared for. Free tour of Boat factory across the street. Sewer is via underground tanks due to high water table and tanks sometimes overflow. New roads in vicinity, so if coming from the south via GPS be sure to get off Hwy 17 onto Bus 17 at Chocowinity or you will miss the park. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for 16 days, it was off season and the rate we paid was a special for 1000 trail members. The park is excellent, the staff was more than accommodating. We actually needed to stay 2 extra nights and were amazed when they told us " no problem your covered" no extra charge for the 2 nights. Only had 2 down sides to the park. You need to be aware they change the gate code every Tuesday, so make sure you get your new code prior to leaving on Tuesday. If the office is closed when you get back, hope for someone to come along and let you in. Now during season there might be someone in the office after hours to give you access. Also, we did on occasion notice a slight sewer smell on a couple days. Overall the park is great, mature trees, level sites (on sand, but it's the inner banks so that's expected), large park with fishing ponds. Bath and shower houses were extremely clean. We have every intention to return for a week or two so we can do more sightseeing in the local area. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

My son summed it up: "It's fun and friendly." We'd not been here before, and we'll certainly be back. We stayed over Labor Day Weekend. The park was full, but still did not feel "crowded." There was a wide variety of activities, from planned to spontaneous, enough to keep me busy on the kayak (and planning to do some fishing and crabbing next time) and for the kids to have all kinds of fun. The staff was friendly and the campground well maintained. Many seasonal campers, though we felt right at home with plenty of space and a welcome atmosphere for us weekend campers as well. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Tent Trailer.
Geared more towards the permanent camper. Made reservations but was sent to three sites that were already occupied. Office staff were very friendly but a little confused. Needed full hook-up because they do not have a dump station. Had to settle for a non sewage site but they did provide a clean out wagon at our departure because vacated sewer sites were inaccessible to our MH. Had to prune small limbs from top of site to exit. During stay methane odor was overwhelming at times from neighboring sites. Golf cart traffic was exceptionally heavy late into the night. The pool was very nice, the sites are all pretty shaded, and the store fairly well stocked. The campground is gated. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
We came in for a one night stay as affiliate members from Thousand Trails, hence the $3 rate. This campground is beautiful and well maintained. Lots of family activity. The staff is efficient and we would stop here again. The only reason I didn't rate this a 10 is due to the lack of trimming on the trees. Some branches hung rather low for my 12'6" fifth wheel. When raising my TV antenna it got caught up in the tree. I climbed up and trimmed it to clear it. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
Spent a long weekend here. It is a nice park for families with lots of activities for the kids. There were LOTS of seasonal campers, many with boats or trailers on their site, many of them trashy looking. Sites were close together. No cable TV. Wireless was available if you pay for it. Was able to pick up two TV stations, one being the local weather channel. People in the office were friendly. The CG had a pot luck dinner and an evening movie. Lots of kids running around, many on golf carts. There were a couple of ponds for fishing. Club house has a nice game room with video games, pool tables and air hockey. I rated it lower because of over all condition. Though it was clean, faucets leaked on sites, some sites were difficult to get into with longer trailers, my antenna also got caught on tree limbs. It rained and there was a lot of flooding. We will return out of season when it will be a bit less active, I hope. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
For a big rig and needing 50 amp service there was only one site. Our reservations were lost so they were not prepared for our visit. Most of the 50 amp sites were taken by long term rentals. Satellite TV reception is blocked by trees. The nights are quiet. Pools are well kept and heated. If you have a boat this is a great place. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
We stayed on Memorial Day and the park was packed! The park owners did an excellent job checking everyone it and leading us to our site. Their activities were great. Things in the camp store reasonably priced. Park was quiet at night, they really enforce quiet time. Bad part was only one bath house for all the campers. One stall was out of order the whole time (both men's and women's). No towels in dispensers. It is just inadequate for peak camping weekends. Otherwise, the campground was wonderful and we'd definitely go again. We camped at Twin Lakes Camping Resort in a Tent Trailer.
We stayed here for about a month (thus the monthly rate.) We have an Internet Satellite on roof and needed to be away from trees. There aren't many sites that would allow that but we found one. Friendly staff, large RV Park with mostly vacation mobile home owners that leave their trailers there year round. We stayed in May, but it would soon get very hot and humid so be prepared for the weather if you stay in the summer. Overall we would stay there again.
