We loved this campground which is owned by retired RVers. It is clear that their experiences on the road have contributed to the layout and ongoing expansion of the park. Easily accessible off I-85. The owners are delightful and extremely helpful. We would plan to stay here if traveling along North Carolina's I-85 in the future. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Big rig friendly with level sites even though the campground was hilly. The GPS gave us wrong direction. You need to take I85 exit 84. You go over the bridge and take first left to Campground Road. You will see small campground sign. Showers and laundry was good. Cable was good but Wi-Fi was not available at our site. No dog park but several fields to walk dog. No activities and pool was closed due to season. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Food Lion, Walmart and Kohl's was less than 10 miles. Did not sightsee because we were visiting family.

We drove 5 hours from Richmond VA to Kings Mountain NC to trade RVs for a new Holiday Rambler. It would have been to much to go back after the walk through so I looked up campgrounds and Crosswinds had a high rating. I called and Glenda was wonderful. On way knew it would be after 5 when I got there so I called and she said no problem. We had no food in new unit so she told us to go to Hendrix in Spencer. Great choice. Great campground.

Very easy to find as it is right off I85 and they have signs pointing you to the campground. We camped in a 38' motorhome. Easy to maneuver to get to sites. Very clean and friendly. Staff make you feel at home.

Will definitely be back. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Go about 5 miles into Spencer to Hendrix BBQ - the Best

We had a very good stay. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Because we had problems with our jacks the owners let us change sites without hesitation. We hope to return if ever in North Carolina again.

The camp was easy to access and was very clean and well cared for. Laundry and bath house are very clean and well located. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We stopped here for a mid-week overnight and were one of only a handful of campers. Rate shown included a 50% discount for Passport America. Our site was a pull-through which was convenient as we didn't have to disconnect the towed. The owner stopped by after we arrived to collect the fee. The site was level and had full hookups, including cable service. The site is a very short distance off I-85 and very convenient for through travelers. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Just down the road is the town of Spencer, home of the North Carolina Transportation Museum, a must for rail enthusiasts.

Wonderful park with a great atmosphere. We stayed here over the weekend and were blown away. Very nice CG with great owners and campers alike. Pool was open even though we stayed after Labor Day and was clean and up to date. The Playground where my daughter spent most of her time was very large and clean and had plenty for her to do. WIFI worked great and the cable was pretty good too. We will stay here again and we recommend it to anyone. Only about 30 mins from Concord Mills and plenty of other local attractions.

Price reflects six day stay. Roads coming into the park to the office and around the pool are paved. Most of the interior roads are also paved. Sites are gravel and good sized in length and width. Excellent Cable TV. Wi-Fi only had one day it was a little slow, otherwise no complaints. Most sites have trees, some don't. Our site was unlevel side to side two inches. Does allow campfires. Easy in and out with a HDT and trailer (60 ft. combo) We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

New clean campground with large lot spaces. The owners are very sweet people and take time out of their day to conversant with the campers. Found this location to be a very peaceful clean campground that I will return to again due to the convenience and hospitality of the owners. Great location.

Friendly hosts. Some sites have shade, some don't. This park is working to add more sites. We found a few short hiking trails and there was an area to ride our bikes. We will return to this park again. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here 5 nights. For a private campground it felt like being in a state park. All back-in sites have much space between them, with large trees separating the sites. Gravel pads, with picnic table and fire ring, along with full hookups. Playground for children. Main pull-through section sites have less space and no trees. It is not far from interstate, so there is road noise at night, but if you camp in the B section you are the farthest away from noise. It was constructed in 2009, and laid out well to give each site ample space and separation. Only a few criticisms: Shower room lights are on motion detect with timed delay shutoff. Wife was not happy to have the lights turn off in the middle of her night time shower. Their rules say "Please DO NOT set grills on picnic tables." I carry a table top grill and using it on the ground is very bad for my back, and I do not carry a separate stand for it. I did discuss this with the staff and they gave me permission, I think. Signage to find the campground could be better. The only signs directing one to the campground are in the form of street name signs. I didn't have the map with me, did not see the street sign with the campground name and a little arrow on it, and turned at the exit onto the wrong road and had to go a few miles before I could turn around my rig towing our car. No sign at the exit corner with directional arrow, nor at the next turn, like most campgrounds have. Only sign was at the actual driveway into the campground. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

We needed an easy to get to campground for one night on our way home off of I-85. This place is perfect. It is quiet, laid out well, and the owners are the nicest southern people around. We really enjoyed our last night in our RV after being gone from home 2 months. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We asked for a site with trees, and we got even more than we asked for. It was a wonderful site (#A-10), lots of trees, almost felt like we were in the woods at a national or state park instead of in a private campground. The downside of that is you have to contend with mosquitoes, but Off helps. The site was unlevel and we had to use leveling blocks under the dualies, but once we got the coach level, we loved it. Would definitely go back. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

This place is perfect for us, the bathrooms and showers are clean and neat. The park is clean, most of the park is paved (spaces gravel), the staff is wonderful, they do not bother you unless you are a rule breaker. Wi-Fi is plenty fast, cellphone signal great (close to I-85). Firewood is 5 bucks for a big generous bundle of good split hardwoods that burns good and great for campfire cooking. Trees are thin on some sites for satellite users. Pool is small, but very clean. Fishing pond is nice and clean. This is the best campground Overall, I have ever been to and this will be my go to spot close to home. You must have a drivers license to drive a cart here and they will check and if you break the rules here they will make you leave. Garbage cans at every site that are emptied everyday. They have a playground as well for the kiddies... Huge spots. There is no trash laying around in this park, everything is very clean. Park is extremely quiet at night. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

After having to leave one park due to power issues, we drove two hours to this park and were pleasantly surprised by it's peaceful setting, inviting pool, and clean restrooms. It's close to the interstate and just perfect for a one night stop. Park is wooded with a nice walking trail. Owners are friendly and accommodating. We had a large pull-through site with a nice picnic table and good 50 amp service. We hope to return for a longer stay. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.

The I-85 construction including the exits, makes going to this park's website for directions a must. Do not trust your GPS! The gravel road in the park is hard packed and level as well as the front pull-through sites which are quite long and wide. We had no problem leveling, setting up our 40ft Class A with 4 slides and awning. There was plenty of room for our toad to stay hooked up since we were only staying one night. There are no shade trees in this area which makes setting up your satellite easy. Along with the 50amp full hookups, you get a picnic table and fire ring. Bathroom, laundry and pool were all very clean and well maintained. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Sprint phone, hotspot and 3G worked well, did not use the park WiFi. Even though it is right off 85, there is no road noise. We would stay here again. We camped at Cross Winds Family Campground in a Motorhome.
