Horrible park! Check-in was not helpful, site was very unlevel. I was given site 0, which was overgrown. I didn't let my dog outside because of the number of bugs. Campground is not near the lake. I almost left just after I arrived. I would steer clear from this place. - A Chevalier

The good thing I can say is it is "near" the lake, not on the lake, but "near." There a lot of construction workers staying here. It is really noisy between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m., when they all start up their diesel trucks to go to work! - CAMPING SUSAN

We came here based on everyone's comments and pictures of the park on the website. Don't believe what you see! It's not terribly bad, but our spot was incredibly unlevel. The front of our trailer had to be jacked up so high our stabilizer was too short. Right now there are a lot of construction workers here and it's kind of of loud. Looks like it used to be a decent park, but right now I wouldn't suggest families staying here. - BRANDYC

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

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

We visited Cross Winds at the suggestion of family and friends and had a great time! We arrived at night and found it a bit tough to back in and get level due to low spots on the site that we couldn't see well in the dark. The site we were on (at the end of row B) was very wooded and private. My parents stayed in the site next to us and we enjoyed hiking through the trees woods to go visit them. We have already booked another trip next month. Trash cans at each site and the hookup locations were convenient for us. We are looking forward to trying out the new section that is currently being constructed. Looking forward to returning soon! - Megan McGrath

We really liked this campground, we picked it out of the reviews to get out of the hurricane path that was coming up the coast. Our site was spacious, although not quite level - but that was easy to correct. The wi-fi was weak - but that wasn't a problem either. - Patches

Park staff are friendly and courteous. The park is very clean and well kept. The site was very spacious, includes a fire ring and picnic table. Our children loved the playground and duck pond, we did not fish this trip. Overall a great camping experience and we would gladly return. - Ldon

We stayed for a long weekend, arriving at noon on Friday. Check in was easy and we were escourted to our site, The site was off the main entrance and sloped down quite a bit. The map lead you to believe there would be a water view and there was a peek of water through the trees. The park was quite and had plenty of trees. It was very peaceful but a little stressful coming in and going out as the access roads were on the narrow side. - tvolk

We stayed here 7 years ago. It has changed into a trailer park for boaters and fishermen. Permanent sites are packed throughout the park. We were in a row of pull through sites near the entrance. Not very level. Sites very close together. Good hookups with water pressure. Wi-fi was very weak and intermittent. While sitting outside, the pull through site next to us was being shown to a potential long term resident. Difficult exiting our site due to layout. Lots of traffic going by our site. No dog park or designated dog area. Would be OK for an overnite or to play on the lake. We'll find someplace else next time. - amxpress

Enjoyed our one night stay. Office help friendly and helpful. Escorted to our campsite and they also brought firewood to our campsite. We stayed near the lake but not exactly on it. Was a nice pleasant evening. Connections and sewer were fine. Site was not entirely level but we managed fine. We would return. - rwarner22

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

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

I checked in on a Sunday and they have a box at the gate where you pick up your reservation papers with site number and the code to get in gate.But it was not there and you cant get ahold of anyone.I knew my site so someone that stays there let me in.Poor management! So when I talked to the manager about all the issues I was having she got defensive and aggressive.Can you say unprofessional.And maintenance was getting frustrated at me cause their breakers kept blowing and acting like its my fault. I have never stayed in a place where the people who stay there are more helpful than the people who get payed to help you cause you are the customer.And that place stinks so don't step out and take a deep breath in the morning.I WILL NOT GO BACK!!! They need to overhaul their staff all the way around.I have a lot of camping friends and w are a group and a community so I will inform them all. - Lucky camper

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
Oct 2013 - $48.00
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

We have stayed here many times, coming and going, close to home. Very nice park. We thought we were getting electric and water but ended up electric only. Price too high but may have been error. Some sites slope a little. We did not have reservation and they we're very full. - horseylady

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

The place appears to be more like an industrial site with some kind of sludge filtering machine running, front end loaders etc. Spots are difficult to park in due to hills and sharp angles. Everything is gravel and there is nothing to do. Most of the campers are permanent and very few spots are available. Not what I would call a 'family campground'. The employees are helpful and friendly. I think it's intended more for gold hunters than it is for camping. There are other things to do in the area so I'm told. - amwhatam

We were here to do genealogy stuff in Albemarle. It is very convenient to there. The campground owners/staff were very friendly and helpful. The sites are fairly level with only 2 sites for larger coaches. Several long term people here and all were friendly. All roads and sites are gravel. We took the time to do some panning for gold and found some flakes. We did not use the shower or restrooms. The laundry was out of order while we were there. We stayed 6 nights and will definitely be back. - buddyw

This is a working gold mine that has a small campground on the property. We didn't take advantage of any of the gold mining activities, but it looked like fun. We needed a place to stay that was convenient to Albemarle and Concord, and we didn't want to stay at the parking-lot-they-call-campground at the speedway. The campsites are all shaded and relatively level with new gravel. The power, water, sewer, and Wi-Fi all worked and the staff was friendly. There is no cable TV (or even a broadcast TV signal), but our cell phone service worked, which was a nice surprise. The bathrooms and showers can only accommodate one person at a time, and they charge $2 for use of the shower. There is one washer and dryer which is also pay-type. At $25, this campground is a good value, if you have a reason to be this far off the beaten path. - Doraville
