Oct 2015 - $15.00
Level private site. Small narrow entrance to site over a culvert. This might be a problem for a larger motorhome. Most sites not for big rigs. - MsLucy

The campground is several miles by road from the excellent nature-visitors center where you can rent canoes or kayaks to paddle in the lovely cypress treed lake. Nice hiking trails, one of less than a mile between the campground and nature center. Great for nature lovers. Campground has a circular paved road with 20 dirt sites about a central bathhouse that was clean with hot showers. Several water faucets by circular road. No site E/W/S. Many trees. The attraction is the nature center,lake and trails. Very pleasant and helpful park rangers. I would stay there again in my Roadtrek B van. - 210jem

I read the reviews for this park before reserving for one night. I found this park to be a great find. It is in a quiet country atmosphere but a few miles from the town of Edmonton. We did not use any of the amenities but checked them out so we could write our opinion. This is a family run campground and the couple is very pleasant. The roads to the park and new and smooth. The roads in the park are well groomed gravel. The park is well kept and clean. As another reviewer posted; one potty and one shower in each gender restroom. That is correct and it seems adequate. They are clean but a little older and they could use a little ceiling and floor finish work. We have our own facilities in our RV and won't need to use the park resources. The game room is minimal, but a good place to hang out, especially for tent guests. I wish we could stay longer. It is so peaceful and quiet here. We would certainly return and we would recommend this park to anyone who wants a clean, quiet campground with great host owners. - sprinter55
May 2014 - $28.00
Weekly rate (7th night is free). Quiet country campground that we used as a base to visit Historic Edenton and the surrounding area. Sites have full hookups and a clear view of southern sky for satellite antennas. Facilities include fishing pond, boat ramp with access to the Chowan River, smallish 9-hole golf course, laundry, showers, and game room. Also on site is David’s Red Barn with live music and dancing every Friday night and one or more Saturdays each month. The camp office is unmanned, but the owner/manager is just a phone call away. We stayed in a 25’ rig on site 10, a pull-through site. We would stay here again. - Dave51

This place is family owned and operated by the nicest group of folks you ever want to meet. We parked right next to the 9 Hole golf course! On Friday nights we attended a live country/blue grass performance by a group of people that have been doing this for over 30 years at David's New Red Barn. Most come for country/line dancing. They don't serve liquor and everyone has a great time. They have fishing in their private pond and river canal. Our site was level and quiet. They have a ultralight landing strip next to the pond. We would definitely stay here again. I would give it a 10 except that it doesn't have cable. Go there and enjoy the hospitality! - Mamaw

Davis Lakes is a tale of two campgrounds. The first campground is the clean, quiet, spacious, well-kept campground available during the week. The second is the loud, crowded, raucous party spot on the weekends.
Davis Lakes is a "destination" campground for a lot of the locals who come with their campers on the weekends. It has a private lake with lots of water toys for the kids along with its own small sandy beach. The campground is not very busy during the week, but fills to the capacity starting on Friday nights. Friday night and Saturday night, don't plan on sleeping much. Kids were running around on scooters yelling loudly until after midnight. Campers next to us were playing loud music, drinking, and making even more noise until later. Golf carts were racing around and more than one driver was drinking beer while driving. Campground staff don't seem to care, which is why I gave a lower rating on service. Most campgrounds wouldn't tolerate the behavior we saw over a weekend.
Sites seem to be mostly back-in, but were long enough for our 39' Class A and Jeep Wrangler. We had to position in the site so our jacks did not go down on large tree roots. Otherwise, the site was level and mostly gravel. Most of the sites are tree covered which is great for shade but not great for dish; ours did not work. There are 33 HDTV channels broadcast and Davis Lakes offers cable (we didn't try it).
WiFi is typical campground, which is to say it sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. Mostly, it worked but at slow speeds. I would give the WIFi a grade of C.
Roads inside the campground are paved and branches were well trimmed. Water pressure is on the low side at times, but adequate. We had 50amp service and no issues.
Davis Lakes is located along the highway but a large sound wall blocks almost all the noise. It is pretty quiet. - Bryanmsi

No discount rate offered for one night stay. Rate is for a large, FHU, 50 amp, back-in, gravel site with a raised wooden patio with picnic table. The campground was easily accessed from US13. The main interior road is paved; the secondary roads are gravel. We did not have satellite access because of the trees. We had good Verizon cell/MiFi reception. We would stay here again. - Dave51

Well laid out. Sites good sized. Level. Roads were wide enough to traverse easily. Must go through a residential area to get to campground. Good wi-fi. We were permitted to wash coach, which really needed it. - EdGuru
