The roads were terrible and needed major upkeep. The campground was very difficult to get in and out. The water pressure was very low which made taking a shower and flushing the toilet unpleasant. - Fulltimersrv

We unhooked and did a drive thru in our tow and glad we did. The roads are narrow and in need of repair. Tree limbs hang low and will catch all RV's regardless of height. The restrooms need cleaning and work. Most of the sites are small, the full timers have taken all the "good" sites, and visitors have the left overs. We could not get our 40 foot motor home in and out. We did not stay. - tandkj

This large campground is almost full of permanent campers. Most are older models that are really ran down, which makes the whole campground look bad. Sites are very small and difficult to extend slides and awnings without hitting trees or camper next to yours. Low hanging tree limbs hanging down. Pools are nice. Cable is good. Bathhouse's are nasty. Only wireless is near the pool and at the office. Power went off two times during our stay. One major problem are the mosquitoes. Teenagers on golf carts are a problem. Staff are very friendly, and know that improvements are needed. But with a large corporation owning this campground, funds are limited on their behalf. Beware if the clouds get thick, the manager will close the pools for hours, anticipating a storm. We will probably not return. - jabberb

Easy access on and off I-77 and I-40. The CG was clean and well maintained with a friendly and accommodating staff. I had a pull through with full hookups. We didn't hear the road noise mentioned by others most likely because we were located in the back of the CG. WiFi was the fastest when compared to other CGs we visited. We would stay here again. - Russ60

Overall it was a pleasant 2 night stay. Sites are VERY close together. Our site (14) was on a row of long term campers. It was level and shaded but very narrow so no room at all to spread out.
The campground is older and dated but quiet and seemed well maintained for the most part. The roads throughout the campground could definitely use some fresh gravel. As well, the gravel at our site was sparse and there were some muddy spots to maneuver around.
There are plenty of fun amenities for the kids. We used the pool (nice & big), jumping pillow, game room, fishing pond, playground and basketball court.
The reasons I didn't rate above average were because of how close we were to the next camper, how cramped our site was and the condition of the roads. - LynchPartyof8

Gravel interior with a wicked angled speed bump-watch your cabinets-they will fly open!! Large beautiful, spacious and shaded site with lounge chairs and grill. Good cable but WiFi is a bit slow. We stayed one night in a motor home-would stay again. - runamuka

Well equipped and maintained clubhouse, pool shower/changing room. Adult pool is large; nice hot tub. The Family/kids pool area is really well done with a Jungle Gym, ice cream shop and restaurant. The restaurant is priced for families on a budget.
Our site was perfectly level, large and grassy.
NOTE: the waste water pipe does not have a threaded attachment style so bring an adapter. I use a 3" diameter by 12" long PVC pipe with a standard RV sewer line elbow adapted. Worked well. - GaHoosier

Easy access to I85. Very nice and helpful staff. Large sites, mostly well maintained. Many long term campers, but plenty of sites for short term stays. Wifi costs extra, but well worth the couple of dollars. Most sites are back in. However, we were able to get out 43 ft MH in pretty easily. Would like to see this place in summer, I imagine it would be very nice. Stayed a week this time and would stay again. - westwill3

We stayed here for one night on our way south. The park's roads were very narrow and windy, and in need of repair. Most of the sites are occupied by annuals, so there are very few transient sites to choose from. There were only 6 or so sites available, and of those, we could get our 40-foot motorhome into one or two. We chose the one accessible site closest to the exit, and it was very unlevel, as were all the sites available to us. Utilities worked as they should, and we got a strong Verizon cell signal. However, we will not return to this park. - henny38

This campground is way overpriced. Sites are grass and get very soggy when it rains. WiFi only worked outside our trailer and even that was spotty. There is no cable. Did not use the showers as it would we would have had to walk back to our campsite in the soggy grass. Did look at the restrooms, there were okay. Had planned to stay 2 nights, but changed our minds because of the price. - srqcampers

This campground was just reopened and the new owner is making a lot of positive improvements to the park. We stayed for the entire week of Thanksgiving so as you might imagine it was pretty quiet with only about 10 sites occupied during the week. It was quiet and clean. No junkie sites. Salisbury is just down the road about 5 miles with all the shopping you'll ever need as well as historical tours. We stopped by in the early fall one weekend while the park was pretty active and there was a lot of things going on. There was a big horseshoe tournament that day. Kids were paddle boating in the lake and we were able to speak to a lot of people in the short time we were there. We're thinking this may be our spring and fall park when we transition to full-time snow birds in the next year or so. You'll like Carolina Country CG, trust us. - Jim White Statesville NC

Wi-Fi has a charge if you want it at your site. Said there is free Wi-Fi at office. Washing machines were out of order. Nice wooded area with a lake and pull through and backin sites. Satellite can be gotten from some sites not from all. Ask at office for a satellite friendly one. Most sites 30amp some are being upgraded to 50 amp. Overall we enjoyed campground and would return. - Mitchelmal

Stayed here for a week while our child attended the STEM Program at Wake Forest University. My brother was with us, who has COPD. We were told we could use the golf cart for him to use, but once here, you could only go to the outdated bathhouse. All park amenities were at least a mile from the campground. Very unlevel lots. NO CABLE!!! The park hosts say Time Warner Cable recently changed the park to digital, and it has left the lots with NO SERVICE. I will not stay here again. Park is fairly clean, with beautiful gardens, you just have to get in the car to drive to everything. There are only a few level lots. - John-Teresa Lynch

A city owned park. Nicely landscaped and clean. Well maintained. Asphalt, FHU-20/30/50 but numerous sites are seriously tilted. My Auto Level grounded the fiver's front jacks and we had to manually level, noting a tilt to the left. Sewer pipes just a bit too high (tended to drain "uphill"). Roads are asphalt and wide enough for the angled back-in (all sites are back-in). All utilities are at the rear of the sites. Sites are very roomy and the CG is big but I only saw one restroom/shower building to service everyone. - StephenK

This is a very nice campground within Tanglewood Park, very clean and the sites are nicely spaced. The 3 negatives of the campground are unlevel sites, a dated bath house and weak wireless. We really enjoyed the mountain bike trails and I also took my daughter to the Par 3 course inside the park, which is perfect for beginners(no sand and all holes are less than 90 yards long). I have already made reservations for later this year. - theengle

East on and off from freeway. They nolonger give PA discounts or any other. Told me their discounts were already in the price. NOT at $41. Overall though a very nice park with level sites and easy pull throughs. - amimjs

The CG was clean and spacious. It almost had the feel of a state park with the addition of full hookups. Almost. We stayed for two days in the A loop in a pull through. It was level. B loop has back in sites that are spacious but may need some leveling. In both loops there is plenty of shade with many trees between sites. Near the entrance there are sites with full sun - near the pool. I can see where this is a favorite CG for weekends. We were here during the week with very little company.
As stated in other reviews, access from I-85 is quick and easy. There is also some highway noise, but not objectionable. All in all, this is a very nice CG for a quick stop over or for a multiple day escape. We would certainly come here again. - SchnoodleCamp

This was an over night stop, our first on a month-long trip. Our grandson checked out the pool adjacent to our very level site. A great beginning to our trip. - Dunwoodyradio

The only reason I gave an 8 review was no cable tv and I could not watch the Olympics :)
The park is very pretty, tree shaded level lots, green grass, lots of birds and 2 friendly park dogs. The owners are very nice and helpful. - Masons love rving

Very, very un-level sites, very poor water pressure. Lots of trees so the satellite did not work; no cable. Gravel roads, gravel, clay and grass site. Pretty pastures, mostly full time campers. - Joe-Sandy

To me the Value and Service categories are irrelevant because the 'Bath House' was so bad. This place is primarily a year-round campground. There are a few sites that are available for short stay but it doesn't look like they get much use. It seems the focus here is on the fiddle concerts - nothing has been done to maintain the RV parking sites - we left after checking out the rest rooms and laundry. Fortunately I had not paid yet. We will not stop here again. Don't stop here unless you only need electric and can sleep the whole time you are there - BUT at $40 I suspect you will feel like that is a rip off. - acadiame

We will camp here again. Start with 10, then -1 bathroom ventilation (moist), -1 had to level 1", -1 road ruts, +1 clean and well drained dump. Water tight, electric solid. Our site was water/electric, no sewer, shaded with pleasant neighbors. We stayed Memorial Weekend for the 90th Old Time Fiddler's Convention, a joy. Went to bed with campground fiddling, woke to same. Pull-through sites with sewer, but no shade, go fast. We stayed in site 14. This campground is far from roads - quiet, with clear sky. - Frank Rader

Pads are gravel and unlevel. No Internet, Needs some TLC. Mostly permanent campers. OKL for overnight if you don't expect anything. Over priced, so stop only if you have no choice. Would not stay here again. - walter & kay

This campground is close to the interstate, and this was the second time we stayed here. The sites need some leveling, and are gravel or grass. There is plenty of room for the dogs to walk, and a small lake with bluegill. We will stay here again without hesitation. - j&b

This KOA is very easy to get to from I-77, in fact, I-77 runs right alongside of it. We spent one night here with a 25' travel trailer. They gave us one of their pull thru sites. It was very close to the highway. The sites are gravel, and the access roads are paved. Our site wasn't very level, side to side or front to back. We were kind of handicapped with the front to back, as we wanted to leave the truck hooked up, but a couple of spacer boards under one side of the trailer fixed the side to side problem. On a level surface, with the truck hooked up, our trailer is almost perfectly level.
The campground is clean, however in one day, I noticed several small things the should be fixed.
The wifi is fast and strong, and free. The staff is friendly and helpful.
There is a nice pool.
Other than the road noise, I'd recommend this camp ground. - Jimal

I wanted to like this campground because the staff are so kind and helpful. However, the full hook-up sites are too close for comfort to your neighbor. We could hear everything the people in the next site were doing, saying, what they were eating, etc. In general, the campground is crowded. We've camped all over America and unfortunately this is one of our least favorite as a destination. It is close to the Lake Norman state park and about 40 minutes to Charlotte. The kids enjoyed the pool, and the laundry has great washers and dryers. This area has very few campgrounds, but we will stay again only if no other options. - Roadschool

We were looking for a campground close to the Interstate for a quick overnight stop and this was certainly adequate. The staff was very helpful and friendly and we were escorted to our site. The roads are paved and very curvy but we had no problem getting around with our 40' rig. Our site was gravel and not at all level. We probably could have got at least slightly level if we had unhooked but chose not to do so. Cable TV had lots of channels and worked well but Wi-Fi didn't work at all on our site (which was about the farthest from the office). 50-amp service worked fine and water pressure was good. - SandyA

Comments made by the previous reviewer are accurate. My site was back-in next to the lake. Be very careful of the trees though when parking. I have Verizon and my signal was 1-bar or altogether non-existent but it made for a quiet evening! I only used the electric service for my own experience night stay but it was rock solid and my surgery protector/monitor detected no problems. Sites are sparsely graveled and could use some redressing. The overall campground is wooded but very nice with a significant amount of space between sites. - KC8RXQ

In the year since I stayed at this campground, the county has added free wi-fi that worked well, after my Verizon phone couldn't find a signal. Nearly all sites were backin, spacious and needed some leveling. The rate shown was likely a senior rate. The entire campground is in dense woods. The roads through the campground are paved, but the sites are gravel. It appeared that all sites had 30 and 50 amp service along with a water spigot. The park was busy over the weekend, but by Sunday afternoon, nearly everyone left. The 3:00 pm checkout time is good for weekenders. The restrooms were clean and the showers were free and private. The campground is in the much larger Dan Nicholas Park with many shelters and activities galore on the 10 acres fishing lake. It's about 7 miles into Salisbury from the campground. We would definitely stay again if in the area. - Jay Rutherford

We camped near the lake. Our sites and the ones around us were not level. We finally got leveled with wooden blocks under our levelers. Had one wheel 6 inches off the ground. The county has put a lot of thought and money into the lovely adjacent park. It seems they could spend a few more bucks and bring in some gravel to level the sites. When we first hooked up, my circuit tester showed one leg of the 50 amp service was dead. I contacted the office and within 10 minutes a service man showed up at our site and made the repairs. Apparently the circuit breaker had gone bad. The service man and the lady at the office were both very friendly and helpful. - Tetrode
