The rate was for a 50 amp full hookup site in the rally campground. There are two campground areas, the main campground (60 sites) & service facility on the west side of Resistoflex Road, and the rally park (>400 sites) on the east side of Risistoflex road. The main campground is first class, all paved, etc, while the rally park is essentially a large open grass field of full hookup sites with roadways through the various sections. The main campground was full so we were placed in the rally area, and we essentially had the whole rally area to our selves. However, we were charged the same camp fees that we would have paid if we had been able to get into the main campground. Hurricane Irma visited the area about 5 days prior to our visit, and the rally camp area grass was soft, with evidence of ruts which were being filled by the staff the second day of our stay. AT&T and Verizon cell service decent, and good satellite access in both campground areas. Lots of shopping and restaurants are located nearby to the east and south in Marion. To access the campgrounds, make certain that you use Resistoflex road off Highway 70, about 300 feet west of the main Tom Johnson store/showroom, rather than trying to enter at the store/showroom. Also if you plan to enter the rally campground on a Sunday, be certain to call during the week to obtain the gate code to allow entry as there is no regular staff there on Sundays. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed only one night passing through. Do not try to enter at the sales entrance the entrance to the campground is off Resistoflex Road which is a little narrow for our big rig. All back-ins, level, long, paved. Verizon good, WiFi ok. Separate large rally area. If you try to call ahead, good luck - their phone system is terrible. Sales center and Camping World store here.

Easy in/out. Level sites with concrete pads and grass. Longer than most rigs. Full hookups. No cable. WiFi - OK. Picnic tables. No shade. Nice touch is the small breakfast and lunch in the old sales building. Order and pick up yourself; but it's only $5 for breakfast with grits, eggs, sausage, bacon, pancakes, and gravy. Mt. Mitchell short drive away. Had no reservation. Check-in was a breeze at the service center. Stayed three nights. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It's like staying in a parking lot, wide open, no fire pit. A few sites in front have a few trees, that's it. Did not enjoy it. And would never buy a camper there again, we got a lemon. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a clean, quiet park that is close to many attractions in the mountains and not too far from Asheville. We stayed in the main area, not the grassy annex. The sites are concrete and level. Access into and through the park is very open. All of the sites are long enough for the biggest rigs. There is no fire ring but each site has a picnic table. There are only 4 channels available but most sites are open for good access to satellites. Wi-if is poor but Verizon service was strong. The best sites are those along the river. There is a walking trail along the river near the RV dealership and also the Marion Greenway just down the road. Rates are a bit high but that tends to be the case in this area. The staff is friendly and helpful with reservations. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Motorhome.

Other than check in being unorganized, we like this campground. This review is for the paved sites and not the rally ones. The sites are level, wide, back in and paved. Picnic tables have been added since our last visit. There is plenty of room to walk your dogs around the perimeter of the sites. CG would easily be a 10 if it had wifi and cable. I like the price which is reasonable for this area so I can easily do without the amenities. Campground is on Resistoflex Rd., which is right after the Camping World if your on 70 WEST. You will be turning LEFT after the Camping World if headed WEST. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is very open - easy access for even the largest rv's. Everything is either grassed or paved. Nice concrete patio with picnic table, convenient hook-ups, level sites. No wifi in park - but AT&T hotspot on iPhone worked well. No cable. This is why I downgraded to an 8 rating. Other than connectivity issues, it is a very well maintained, clean, well laid-out park. Would not be good for families with kids - no playground or planned activities. Nice, quiet place for a couple like us. Also has a good little cafe in the main building. You are basically on your own on weekends. I didn't see a single employee on duty. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed here for 2 nights while conducting some business in the area. Very level parking pass and very good utilities. You'll need satellite if you want to watch TV. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nice park. Wide roads in the park and wide sites. All sites are back in and cement. Very good cafe on site that serves breakfast and lunch. Verizon service was good in the park. Park was quiet and had a river running in the back part of the park. Right next door to the Camping World store and the service department is right there in the park. People were friendly and helpful.

Would stay here again. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a month and found the staff to be very friendly and the park well maintained, clean, and very quiet. All sites have level cement pads with some young trees within the park and some sites bordering a river. There is daily pickup of garbage at your site. We needed our refrigerator replaced and got excellent service right here at the Camping World service center. While the daily rate is $30, we paid $20/day because we stayed for a month. The clubhouse which contains the bathrooms, restaurant, laundry and service center office is all modern and clean. The laundry is adequate, but could be larger with only 2 washers and dryers. WiFi is spotty. Overall it's a great bargain and we'd come back again. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful campground with flat concrete pad 30/50 amp full hook up sites. Staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about area. Campground is near Camping World and a rally site. Breakfast and lunch served at center.

Sites 1-10 would not be good for satellite otherwise the rest of the campground is good.

Our only complaint is the entrance to the campground is not marked. We had to turn around at Camping World. There are also no picnic tables or fire rings. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Motorhome.

We have not been in the park in three years. the park is the same but since Camping World is the new owners as of Friday it has changed. We were there three days and no one picked up the garbage. This would never have happened if Tom Johnson was still in charge.I heard nine technicians have left and some of the salespersons were let go. There are people there who have been there for weeks trying to get their units fixed. Still a good place to stop but don't know about the service anymore. Restaurant still there. I hope they can survive. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed at the Tom Johnson Campground for 4 nites while touring the Blue Ridge Parkway. We throughly enjoyed our stay and found the park very clean and were able to have a site that satellite worked well. The restrooms and laundry were spotless. We didn't get to try their restaurant but heard it was excellent. It would be nice if the clubhouse would be open in the evening for campers to have a place to get together or play cards. Although We had to leave one day early, we had no problem getting an immediate refund. The sites were quite long and very spacious and were arranged so that you had good privacy. We were very pleased with the value of this campground and would definitely stay there again. We camped at Tom Johnson Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
