This should be listed as a 65+ or more RV park. It seems that 90% or more are there seasonally or permanently. There were only 7 or 8 spaces that seemed to have people coming and going. No one was out and about. It was like a ghost town full of campers. I'm 60 and I felt like a youngster there. They had a nice pool which was the only thing that convinced us to stay the full three nights we had scheduled. The spaces were close together and even though there was some bushes between the sites, there was no feeling of privacy. If you're looking for a very quiet place where you'll never meet anyone or be bothered with kids, this is your place. But I learned something about myself. I like the activity in other parks and people wandering around saying hi and trying to be friendly. I even missed the activity of kids which can sometimes annoy me if they're out of hand. I found it a depressing place that looked like where old RV'ers go to die. I won't be going back simply because of those reasons. This place might be Narnia for some folks but it didn't suit me. I won't be back. For our purposes it was a trip to break-in a new 5th wheel and check things out. That mission went well but I wouldn't want to camp here again. We camped at Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects a monthly one. Site 665 is nearly flat, packed gravel, end spot with small grass patches both sides and back. Concrete patio. Shade from well-trimmed trees except in late afternoon on patio side. Camped in 35 foot 5th wheel with three slides. Site is VERY tight between raised concrete patio and water/cable pedestal. Minimal space for pick-up truck. Neighbor to patio side is close & neighbor to back is staggered, but close. Woods beyond quiet vehicle lane on utility side. Quiet. Cable (and OTA) TV limited to main broadcast, church, and shopping stations. WiFi is open, but generally good. AT&T cell coverage is generally good. Laundry and bath houses are spacious and very clean. Large pool is well-maintained. No ice machine. Office closed on Sundays. Scheduled social activities. We camped at Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

We planned to spend five months here this summer, but two months was enough. If you are coming for a few days or a week to see Hendersonville, this place will probably suit you fine. They have some design and management problems that take away from what could be a fine park.

On the plus side, utilities, including WIFI, were fine. They have a section of pull throughs and larger back in sites that are adequate for larger rigs. Try to get a back in space if you want to enjoy your patio and awning as those sites face north. When they designed the pull through area, they made the mistake of facing them all south and then planted a tree on the southwest corner of each site. Motorhomes get the mid-day and afternoon sun on the windshield and on the patio (unless you happen to get a large rig as a neighbor on the west side). The trees by the sites have now grown large and management does not keep them trimmed, so limbs lean on the roof and sides of the rigs and interfere with some satellite TV reception.

When you enter the park, you will notice an island that is off center in the roadway. There is plenty of room to enter, but when you leave, if you stay to the right as the arrow points, you will have to be careful to not clip the objects in the island on the left and will brush the trees on the right all the way down the side of your coach. Don't know why the island is there or, at least, why it is where it is.

The park is owned by a friendly retired couple. Unfortunately, they turned the management and maintenance of the park over to their daughter and son-in-law, neither of whom is schooled or proficient at customer service or business management. Employees will tell you one thing and the manager will, with attitude, tell you something else. This caused problems with reservations, parking direction, and charge for electricity. We camped at Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Watch the turn coming into the park - there is an island that you you can't see until you are partially in the driveway. Also makes it a bit 'skinny' when exiting with you coach/RV. This is a lovely, well maintained park with easy access to I26. We were in a pull thru that had trees blocking our satellite dish and they sent maintenance over quickly to trim the branches back. Wifi and all connections worked and we had a very enjoyable week here. We weren't really ready to leave when it was time to go, which is unusual for us! We will definitely be back. We camped at Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The town of Hendersonville has a great visitor info center that can provide you with days worth of things to do. Carl Sandburg National Historic Site is close by, but house is currently empty as they are getting it ready for the 2019 anniversary. Asheville is about 30 minutes away and has a very fun single A baseball team, the Tourists, who are affiliated with the Colorado Rockies. DuPont Forest has lots of trails and waterfalls and is also relatively close by.

Two levels in park. Upper level all park models, lower RVs. Clean well taken care of. Only thing I suggest is tree branches get trimmed a little so they don't hang over slide toppers and roof. Would help with receiving satellite. People were friendly. Campground sells tickets to Biltmore at a good savings. Would stay again. We camped at Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Nice 55+ park. A mixture of spacious pull-through, back-in sites and permanent park models. Gravel parking pads, concrete patios (with a picnic table) and paved internal roads. The owners obviously take pride in in the park. It's neat, clean and quiet. Trees and grass throughout the park. Less than a mile off I-26, but far enough away you don't hear freeway noise. Check in was easy. Very good value for the money. We'd definitely stay here again. We camped at Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Shopping, gas stations, and the whole gamut of restaurants, and grocery stores are just 5-10 minutes away. Binions Roadhouse(the kind of casual place where you throw the complimentary peanut shells on the floor) in Hendersonville is a few minutes further, but worth the drive. A must see is the Biltmore Estates in Asheville, about 30 minutes or so away. Plan on spending the better part of a day to see and appreciate it. It's spectacular! Not cheap, but spectacular.

A mixed facility (mobile homes, trailers, motor homes, seasonal) this was a 55 only park that we chose to visit Asheville. Beautiful bathrooms and laundry. Had a nice pull through close to the facilities. Verizon works well. Had cable so didn't need the satellite. Personnel great to work with. Would definitely stay again if visiting area.

We have been here many times previously in our class A and first time in our class B with no slides or toad. Stopped only for the night and left early am to beat the supposed hurricane at our home near Charlotte, NC. Sites were ok and a bit more crowded than our previous class A sites. Cable was excellent. wifi was ok. About 1/2 mile off interstate 26 near several restaurants. We would stay here again. We camped at Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of "stuff" nearby. Flat House theatre for plays, some unique shopping and some great restaurants. Also close to Asheville which includes Biltmore House and Grove Park Inn where we had lunch on the very scenic view patio. I suggest that you ask the check in people if you can visit one of their 1895 (year built or so) rooms. We have stayed there but have taken some of our guest thru the older rooms by leaving a credit card with the check in folks. .

Rate reflects seasonal rate. This was our second summer here and nothing has changed since my 2015 review. Still a wonderful place to spend the summer. Except for one round of internet problems, everything was top-notch. Management does things "right" at this park. Wish I could give a 9 3/4!

I'd really like to give them a 10. In fact, if internet connection wasn't a big concern I probably would. The park is about 1/2 mile off I-26 but you don't get any noise from it, the park is clean, the staff is friendly, it has a nice fitness center and activities, and it's a short drive to great hiking and some cool small towns (Hendersonville, Brevard, Lake Lure). However, their WiFi is AWFUL. It's slow and drops regularly, even when sitting outside the office right under an access point. We planned to work from the park for the week. After a frustrating day and a half, we gave up on their WiFi and spent the rest of the week burning through our Verizon data plan.

The park seemed to be a fairly even mix of short timers like us and snow birds who stayed there all summer. Everybody we came across was friendly. We camped at Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

This was our 2nd time in this campground. It is a 55+ community. VERY quiet and immaculate. The showers/bath house were the cleanest I have ever seen. The sites are spacious on the newer side but the lower loop is fairly tight. The entrance and exit to the resort is pretty tight with limited visibility making it nerve wrecking every time we pulled out. Many HUGE motorhomes in this park and most people keep to themselves making it seem a little less friendly. No open fires. It is safe and well maintained but you will NOT connect with nature here. It is a resort not a campground. Probably won't return because we were bored to death. We camped at Lakewood RV Resort (55+ park) in a Fifth Wheel.

We saw the rating on this website compared to the others campgrounds in this area. That is why we chose this one. We did not get to use any of the amenities, as it was a short stay. It was a nice campground. Would stay here again. Coming in the front gate is a little tight, but manageable. The sites were mainly level. We only stayed there so we could do the Zipline.
