We went there to check it all out before even camping there. Upon arrival, we noticed RR tracks right across the street. Campsites were very close to each other and very narrow. Older campers were just sitting there. Not sure if they just put them there making it look like people were camping. No one was around. You have to pay for the Zip Line. Rip off if you ask me. Bathrooms at the time were clean, but then I read more reviews on how filthy they are now. Owner was kind of wishy washy/weird. Definitely would not camp here. - Prowler on the loose

This place is without a doubt the worst campground I have ever stayed in in 14 years of full timing. I called a week ahead of time for a reservation. The gentleman took all my information, quoted a price of $25 for full hookups. We drove 350 miles that day and entered the place under a severe T-storm warning. The lady at the desk could not find my reservation. She said go unhook, find a spot and come back and we'll fill out the paperwork, no problem, been there before. I got the very last spot in the park.The interior roads are gravel and filled with potholes. They say they are big rig friendly... NOT, really tight. The sewer was at the very back and uphill, HUH, decent water pressure, decent 50 amp.We will NOT return and would advise to stay away from here. - walt66

Great campground for budget conscious Travelers. I have no problem staying here but there is a down side. It sits close to a set of railway tracks and the noise of the trains could bother a light sleeper. - Craig73

The access into the park is through a 1/2 mile 1-1/2 car wide road. Large RVs might find the interior roads difficult. Need to watch the trees. Very close to the Kings Mountain Battlefield. - A hitch and hop

Have stayed here many times over the years,but only in the spring and fall. Campground is heavily wooded, but hot and muggy in the summer. Some sites need several boards to level. We camped during the annual Halloween activities weekend. Campground was full, as sites were reserved many months ahead, and most were decorated for the occasion. Some new gravel rock dust had been put down, and only added to the dusty conditions. We checked out after 1pm and was no waiting at either of the two dump stations on the road out. Will camp here again. - bud121156

Be aware that some sites are very difficult to get into even though very spacious. Be sure to have a lot of leveling equipment, also. The shower house in loop 2 did not have a second curtain for privacy when showering. We found another house that did have both the shower and privacy curtains. My husband's shower knob came off so he fixed it. Good hot water. Most sites are beautiful. This was a very quiet campground although it was 50% full. We enjoyed the neighboring park's museum about Kings Mountain Battlefield and hiking trails in both the state and national parks. We would camp here again. - Pat and Rex

Friendly staff. Owner onsite. Small campground with some long-time residents/snow birds. Gravel sites with water/sewer/electricity. If they have cable, we didn't see it. Great antenna reception. Need fire ring if you are staying for any period of time. We spent one night and would stay again. - WandaJim

We stayed one night while we were in the area to get some repairs done on our motorhome. Owner was very friendly and helpful. He didn't have any pull-thrus but the back-in he gave us was fairly level and easy in and out. Park is neat and clean. No showers, restrooms or laundry. They're putting in extra pull-thrus on one side of the park. Rate is Passport America. I'd stay here again. - Flippitti

Convenient to Interstate (3 minutes). Very pleasant with well laid out spacious sites, many with trees. Stayed overnight but would consider longer term stay in the future. - mobeale

We found a site without a reservation in August and stayed here for about a week. The tent sites do not have grass and you are required to set up in a specific gravel area so bring plenty of padding. The areas are level and will allow at least two tents, depending on which site you choose. There are individual, lockable bathroom/showers which is convenient and they are right next to a small laundry which is open only 8a to 4p. Definitely a good and secluded place to camp, with easy access to Charlotte. No Alcohol which is bad but no out of state fees, which is good. All in all a good place to be. - CaliDiscGolf

The park itself is very beautiful and sits on Lake Wylie. We arrived late and had to knock on the door of another camper to find out about the gate code since there was a big sign that stated the gate locked at dark (which could be open to interpretation). Had trouble finding the site in the dark. Sites are gravel, not level and most are on an incline. Trees are low and the access roads have sharp curves. It would be a great place for smaller campers (less than 30 feet) and not the 40 foot one we were driving, which we were assured would not be a problem. The next day when we checked at the office, we did not receive any information, receipts, gate code, etc. Staff seemed to be more interested in their private conversation than helping. Since it is a state park, local residents receive a considerable discount, but there appeared to be several "permanent" camps which did not add to the overall appearance of the campground. We had to clean up the trash that had been left by a previous guest to make the site nice. - h2oskier

Of the few sites that they have for RVs, make sure that you get a level one. Site R13 in particular has a 8" side to side fall that makes it impossible to level your rig on. We moved to site R2 and it was very level and long so we could remain hooked up if wanted. There are many interesting short hike trails and you are just outside of a very busy city with lots of things to do. No wifi but our AT&T worked good. - VtLee

The price here is very low, which might be a plus. The bathroom, which is basically inaccessible to most of the RV spots, is also the worst we've seen on our entire trip around the country. It looked like a bombed-out tool shed and wasn't stocked with any TP, soap, etc.
As reported in several other reviews, the husband is a very difficult and unhappy person. Unfortunately, his wife runs everything and is often gone, so you very likely will have to deal with him. Everything we communicated with the office was lost, confused, or not passed on to the appropriate person.
Others report an OK, stay, and I can see that happening if you can avoid dealing with the office and don't mind using your own RV's bathroom/shower. If so, might be worth a look. Otherwise, no way. We certainly won't be back. - 5thWheelAroundTheCountry

They take cash only, hmmm that was very interesting. Also, good luck trying to level. I have a 40 ft motorhome and I got nowhere near level after 30 minutes of trying. Watch out for the speed bumps on the east side of the property. They are impossible to hit straight so everything in your refrigerator and cabinets will be thrown around big time. No use in returning to this one. - Johnnyboy21

This is more of a trailer park with some transient sites. Owner was helpful in backing us in and giving directions needed for morning travel. Small area for dog walking. Cash only. - dotr

Delightful overnight stop at a beautiful lakefront county park. Site was gravel, fairly level, but in the sun - a consideration in the summer. Full service with WiFi. Park is very clean, well run, very friendly staff. Opt for a site with a view of the lake. - Breezy2

Really nice campground near Rock Hill and Ft Mill. Our site had a great view of the water, overlooking the picnic pavilion, play areas, boat docks, etc., but from a far distance. There was 1 tree. Other sites had a few more trees, and the other side was heavily wooded. Sites 23 and 25 are the best, as they view the lake nicely. All are spacious. All in all, a great location! - Autigerinnc70

Camped at this York County Park, on the shores of Lake Wylie near Rock Hill, SC in late February. The Sites were well spaced, and very well priced with full hookup (water, electric, sewage) and even internet. Park Ranger was able to accommodate a move to a new site when 30+mph winds worked against us. Staff was friendly, efficient and professional. The restrooms were clean and heated and convenient trash bins with small solar night light and daily pickup completed the picture. Run like a good private campground but with the open space, boat dock and launch of a public park. - Hikers

We stayed at this campground for 6 days while scouting out Greenville for a future move. Our site faced a nice field and the highway was off in the distance. Highway noise could be heard, but not obnoxious. Our site (57) was great with a patio, large gas grill, swing, patio table w chairs, and fire ring. Some of the patio pavers were broken but still a nice site with hardly anyone around us. Most of the week we had the area to ourselves, with one camper come in and stay overnight. Overall quiet campground with only a few golf carts riding around and that was mostly the staff. Bathrooms were clean although smelled very musty and pool was nice but needed to be cleaned in the deep end. Open areas were nice for walking our dogs and so was the dog park. The campground was kept up well and the staff was very friendly. We were a little hesitant to stay here base on other reviews pertaining to these issues, but I found this to be a nice campground and would stay there again! Some of the sites near the camp store and pool are heavily treed and closer together but if you stay on the side facing the open area (sites 68-81) you will have plenty of room to open your slide outs, etc. ! - Campin Cramers

The only thing this park has to offer is the proximity to the Freightliner facilities. We stayed here while attending Camp Freightliner. We had booked a pull-through site but on check-in they tried to tell us that they use the pull-through sites as 2 back-in spots on the weekends. The campground was having trouble with electricity that day and the power was off for several hours. We could not open one of our slides because of trees. The campground was crowded with old, poorly maintained trailers and lots of junk. Not worth the price. We dry camped in the Freightliner facility our last night and were happier there! - Bunci

Have to give them credit for finding us a space when most every park in a 30 mile radius was full.
Now, site sloped a good 10 inches or more front to back. Walk upright under overhang and 4 inches clearance on back. Upper tier sites all drained down through this site when it rained.
Staff pleasant but couldn't help situation.
Had to beat leveling blocks out of the ground upon hooking up because they sank.
Dog park okay but people, PLEASE pick up after your pets
Last night there paid to be moved to overnight spot because we couldn't hook the rig to the truck for early departure. Besides being very unlevel we would have blocked the entire loop road. Monthly sites need some serious work.
Parked tow vehicle in grass beside trailer.
If you are monthly check site before you do your paperwork. We took what was available at the time.
Staff nice but can't do much for you. I don't think they have looked at the sites and were working from a map.
Red mud and take fire ants. You will have lots of both.
Coworkers parked on the "flat shaded side" seemed to have none of the problems we had. - 2dogsandacatfulltime
