Nice staff; quiet; lots of families. Don't expect cell service or satellite TV (thick trees). Nice fire rings. I had a great time and will be back. They told us camping in parts of the winter is 2 nights for the price of one. No generators allowed; no golf carts. I loved the place, I will be back.

We come to Dan Nicholas several times a year as we are a county resident. We absolutely love this park. Most of the sites are very level, some being a little tricky to get into because of the tress. They are very large shaded gravel sites with a fire ring and picnic table. The staff is outstanding and you can tell they take pride in keeping the campground clean. The restrooms are very clean. No sewer hookup and they really need to remove the tree obstacle at the dump station. This is the only thing that keeps me from giving the park a 10. There is so much to do on the park side - gem mining, carousel, train, small zoo, petting zoo, aquarium, miniature golf, paddle boats, large lake. Small concession stand. It's very quiet and nights are great to sit around the campfire. Do not expect much of a cell phone signal if any at all. You can get just a couple local stations on the TV using your antenna. We highly recommend this park and we will continue to visit as often as we can. We camped at Dan Nicholas Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We had wanted to stay at Dan Nicholas for some time, and we were not disappointed. There is quite a demand for sites in the fall, so I made a reservation back in the summer. Their policy is that you pay for your stay when you make the reservation. The rates are very reasonable -- $24 a night for non-county residents. Campsites are large and shaded. No sewer hookups, but there is a waste dump station. The activities in the park are great: miniature train, carrousel, gem mining, wildlife center, paddle boats, hiking and more. Families can enjoy the park and return to the campsite when the kids need a break. Beautiful, rural setting. Quiet at night. Friendly, helpful staff and hosts. Well worth a visit.

This is our second time staying here, and it was a great weekend once again. The sites are fairly level and well shaded. Each one had a fire ring and picnic table. The biggest attraction to coming here is the family friendly park just a short walk from the campground. They have a small zoo, petting zoo, miniature train ride, carousel, mini golf, paddle boats, fishing, and a playground. Everything is very economically priced. If you have kids under 10 this would be a great place to stay for a weekend. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Dan Nicholas Park in a Motorhome.Undo

We visited Dan Nicholas after a friend told us about it. This was a very good experience for us, even though the weather wasn't the best. The sites are roomy and some are close to the water. The restrooms are good. We enjoyed the volleyball court. I would have liked to see a basketball court with a concrete pad to make it more user friendly.

This is a great getaway, clean, quiet, paved roads and most sites fairly level. No sewer hookups but had a dump station but had navigate the park to get it on the correct side. Plenty for the younger crowd to do. Close by the NC Transportation museum in Spencer, worth the trip especially for train buffs. Cell phone and air card limited but you know that was ok too. Will be back, had a very pleasant weekend. We camped at Dan Nicholas Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Great park but sewer hookups would be nice. Campground is set in place by large wooded lots and is quiet. Is located next to large county recreation park and has plenty for children and adults. Large fishing lake. Nice bath houses. We camped at Dan Nicholas Park in a Motorhome.Undo

This is a first class place. The camping facility is beautiful, shaded with 100' trees next to the lake. It could not be better. Only down side was out cell phones had no signal (Net10)...May be different for another carrier. No cable TV or internet wifi service at all. This is a nice spot to get away from it all, though. For some reason the dump station is on the wrong side as you exit so you'll have to do a loop to get lined up. No sewer hookup is a pain, but you know that going in.

Our family loves this campground! We've gone once a year for the past 4 years, and it's now on our list of things to do every summer. The park personnel are so helpful and friendly. Lots to do for the kids, and inexpensive, too. The kids would spend all day at the "Gem Mine" if we'd let them! We bought a bucket of gems, a round of minigolf, a train ride and a carousal ticket for $8 each. Great value and lots of fun! Be aware, the Gem buckets contains a LOT of shiny minerals, so the kids will come home with lots of treasure! There's also a small zoo and a serpentarium. Go to the zoo early in the day, the animals sleep during hot afternoons. There's also paddleboats and hot dogs/ice cream at the snack hut. Nice little lake to toodle around and enjoy. A huge playground as well. There's no pool, but at the park there is a water spray area for the kids to cool off. This is a county park and it's well maintained, very clean and tidy. There's hiking trails if you're inclined, and you're also a short ride to the Train Museum. Campsites are wooded, lots of shade and you can request a site at the edge of the lake. We love to have a campfire in the evening, and relax. The only negative is that there are no sewer connections. Staff is excellent: we even had to cancel a trip at the last minute due to illness, and they kindly sent us a pass to use the following season. Can't say enough good things about this campground and park. It's a real gem! We camped at Dan Nicholas Park in a Tent Trailer.Undo

Came here for a quick weekend getaway. Very nice campground. Trees everywhere, clean bathrooms, and nice people. The sites can be a little tricky to get into to, especially the pull throughs. Spent Saturday morning at the gem mine, carousal, and train which are all located in the park. Cell signal was terrible but who cares. Not to much to complain about. The dump station is in a really bad, awkward location. We camped at Dan Nicholas Park in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Great family camping! Lots of shaded sites, very safe for children. Lot's of paved roads for bike riding, trails for walking and hiking. No permanent sites like a lot of campgrounds, so no trashy, structures, cluttered sites, or golf carts. This is a very quiet and clean place. Great nights around the campfire, this campground sits back a mile or so off the main road so there's no traffic noise like some other places. We camped at Dan Nicholas Park in a Motorhome.Undo

Very nice campground with large sites and lots of built-in entertainment on the other side of the pond (extensive park with gem mining, petting zoo, aquarium, water plaza, several playgrounds, paddle boats, fishing, and more). Perfect for younger kids, but our tween found plenty to do as well. Bath house was exceptionally clean and we were here on a busy weekend. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

For Father's Day weekend, we were able to reserve two adjoining campsites plus one nearby cabin for an extended family gathering. Even though the park was full, everything was clean and organized, and the staff could not have been friendlier. Our campsites were large and well shaded. The cabins are very small with just enough room for one double bed, one bunk bed, a small refrigerator, and a small microwave. Two of the six cabins have ramps for the handicapped. None have toilet facilities, and the closest bath house could be a bit far away for the elderly and disabled. My only suggestion for this park is to add a small bath house in the cabin area. We had little to no cell phone service there (AT&T), and that would be a problem for those who need to stay connected with the world even while vacationing. We had a great experience there, and we will return. We camped at Dan Nicholas Park in a Motorhome.Undo
