Positives are close to I-95, full hookups available, and they accept Passport America. Everything else is negative. Run down park with mobile homes that have not been maintained at all, trains running right behind the park at all hours creating quite a bit of noise, a general feeling of unease, etc. We would not stay there again. - Ab and Cindy

We stopped here just for an overnight. Many many full timers and trailers as in house trailers, and regular trailers with folks living in them. It's behind a run down no tell motel. We did not have any trouble, but the place is old and tired. The 50 amp power was good, the site was a little unlevel. The very best part about this place, aside from the PA discount, is that it is very easy on and off rt 95 less than a 1/4 mile away. - Camping USA

Full of old run down trailers. Gives the name Trailer Trash a location. This place was not worth staying at. I will bypass this place at all cost. Electric and sewer was where they should be but the water was on the other side. Good thing I had extra water hose or I would have to buy one of theirs. - Beauregard

Really nice updated park. Staff very helpful. Large sites, very level. Great dog run. Stayed here in a travel trailer. - fred8509

This is a great campground for our overnight purpose. Most sites are pull-through, so we could leave our tow vehicle attached. The price is reasonable and there IS cable and WiFi! Hooray! Though I did not use it this time, there are dog parks within the campground. Also, they always invite you to breakfast! (We had to start early, so we could not take advantage, but a very nice gesture!) - Momtotwo

This park was obviously designed and is operated by an RVer!
Spacious sites, all utilities properly placed, pull through sites, three dog parks!
Don't miss the free waffles for breakfast.
Every employee that we came in contact with was friendly and helpful.
This will now be a regular stop on our travels on I-95. - mlb

We were here a year ago, and the recently paved interior roads are a great improvement. Sites are level with plenty of room. Large open grassy areas in park, matures trees, lovely landscaping, pond, pool, clubhouse close to completion, very friendly staff. Noise from interstate and trains doesn't really bother us. It's not as if trains run right next to the park as at some places we've been to. Would much rather stay here than at the nearby RV park with rough gravel roads, no grass, and few trees. It all depends on what factors are most important to you. - j-j

This is a very easy to find park right next to the interstate. We stayed here about 4 years ago and had a site further away from the interstate. This time we were in a pull through in the front. There is some road noise but the trains throughout the night woke us several times. Sites are gravel but the picnic table is on a paved slab. This is a very good park for overnight or a day for rest and we will definitely stay here again. - dickens

Overnight on our way home. Easy on-off of I 95. Very friendly and helpful employees. Escorted to our wide and long pull-thru site (toad stayed attached!). Level site with paved interior roads and packed gravel site. Bathhouse was spotless. No cable TV, good antenna reception, also great for Sat TV (probably true for all sites). Did not notice highway road noise, but train does pass nearby evenings and night time hours. Might bother very light sleepers. Very, very limited goods in "store". Local take out Pizza place had great meatball subs!! Will stay again when traveling to son's new home in VA. - pamhyatt1

As mentioned in earlier reviews, this is a mobile home park with a few RV sites. The park was very quiet and well-maintained and there was a nice big grassy area for our dogs to run. No frills, or bells and whistles, but with the dearth of RV parks near Raleigh, it's not bad. We would stay here again. - melissab7

Very clean. Rules are enforced. It's a mobile home park with six (6) RV sites. NO shower building or restrooms. We stayed two months and will be back. Very friendly owner and will help anyway he can to make you comfortable. Only one other RV near us during our stay. Very spacious sites with cement slab and flat gravel area for the RV. - jimdee

Lots of grass and trees. Paved access roads. Sites close to level. Good WiFi. No one was at the office when we arrived. - ta96silver
Oct 2014 - $35.00
As noted, this was a mobile home park. Now many of the sites are available to RVs. The sites are very large. Paved roads, paved parking spots, many with concrete patios. The cleanest, best kept mobile home park I've ever seen. There were no bathhouse facilities, nor pool/playground, but that was OK with us for our stay. If visiting the Raleigh area, this is a very easy place to stay. It's on the south side of town, but you can be anywhere in the area in 30 minutes or less. Easy off and on I-40. No Wi-Fi or cable, but over the air TV was very good. We'd surely stay again if in the area. - macandphyl

Rate based on a monthly stay ($465). Please disregard the old negative reviews here as it appears this campground has been renovated. It is a very, very lovely and pleasant place to stay. The grounds are meticulously maintained and all the sites (which are all full hookups with 50 amp service) are huge. There is plenty of space between neighbors and almost every site has a newly asphalted driveway which will fit at least 2 cars. There are several permanent mobile homes here, but they are very well kept. There are lot of trees on the property (and thus shady spots). Most of the trees are either pine or pecan trees. We arrived at a time when they are almost ripe; can't wait to gather them! Office staff is very friendly and helpful. The only thing of note is that this is not a resort (and it doesn't claim to be). There is no rec center, pool, public bathrooms & showers, or cable TV, but if you only need a nice, clean, safe place to stay, this is an excellent choice. It's about 20 miles to downtown Raleigh, about a 15-20 minute drive. - cherylbrv

Easy access, and good signs on the way. Very rustic campground. All hookups were adequate, the water spigots are below the ground in a hole. Beware that for every two campsites, the hookups are on the same posts, therefore each camper pulls in different. And you will be facing your neighbor. Very awkward. As you and your neighbor sits under the awning, you seem like you are camping with them. Weird.
The pool was nice but dirty. Every day we took our fishing minnow net and skimmed the pool and got all the bugs out before we went swimming. Typical run down campground. The owner is extremely nice and doesn't put up with rowdy, noisy people. He accommodated every request we had.
The internet was very reliable. It was a good place to spend the night, but not an extended stay destination. If you have a visitor to visit, they will be banned from the pool, I guess liability issue? The campground needs a lot of work. We would possibly stay again if we needed a place to sleep, but not stay long. - jabberb

Easy access off I-95. They made us feel welcome and guided us to our spot, which was level. Nice pool on premise. Spots were shaded which interfered with satellite TV reception, but kept them cooler. We will stay here again. - ournextstop

This is a very rustic campground in the middle of a farming neighborhood. The owner was very friendly and helped me hook up which was necessary because the water hookup was in a hole about 6 inches below the surface and it was full of muddy water. He used a cup to bail it out and then hooked up my water hose. I'll have to do it myself tomorrow morning since it's raining hard now and the hole is bound to fill up again. We are camped in an adequate pull-through site on a muddy pad. All the interior roads are muddy and rutted. The pool is closed and doesn't have much water in it. This place is fine for an overnight stop, but I wouldn't stay here again if it was raining. - RVerMJ

This campground is typical for a fairgrounds: no amenities beyond the basics: water, sewer, electric. Roads and sites were gravel, and a bit dusty (although a truck watered down the dust while we were there). Currently very few shady spots, but the trees are young and will provide more shade in the future. Security was good and the location was handy to Raleigh streets and highways. Very handy for getting to downtown locations or to NC State University. Wifi was acceptable, but was fairly weak in our site that was some distance from the antennas--the campground could use more antennas to provide better coverage. A price increase from $25 to $30 went into effect beginning in August. Overall, we would not hesitate to stay here again when we need to do business in Raleigh; the convenience to downtown, and to biking trails would be hard to beat in any other location. - Edistobob

Difficult to find, on Youth Center Drive. Sign says " Horse events" below large sign is a small sign stating "Campground." Look for gate H7. Newer RV campground, young trees, little shade, no amenities , except hook ups. One way system, garbage barrels at each site. Great for big rigs, and very close to events center, State Fair. Great flea market at fair ground, huge, but take an umbrella for shade. The camp ground is big, clean, open and okay, no showers pool or anything. Just a place to rest your head at night. Security attendant will drive up to check you in once you have chosen a spot. It's first come first served. No camping during State Fair weeks. - Audrey Dunton
Jul 2015 - $25.00
We have a home in nearby Cary, and frequently use the fairgrounds as staging and shakedown before long trips. This July we camped 12 days as we transitioned to full-time RVers. This is a great place, with spacious sites. There are no amenities or activities, but in terms of value I'd give it a 10. There's no shade, which means that sites are satellite-friendly, and no bath house, although we understand plans for one are in the works. NC Fair police frequently patrol the area, which convey a feeling of safety. We understand the campground fee will increase 1 Aug. There's no doubt we will stay here again. - CO2RV
Nov 2015 - $23.00
Dont let the looks from the road fool you--this is a pretty nice park. Nice in that it is well maintained--maintenance was busy with various projects around the park while I was there-- it is older but they are not letting it feel old. The sites are roomy with a patio, picnic table and fire ring. My spot was perfectly level and hookups were easy. It is a busy park but everyone's site was tidy with no shabby looking units and it is very quiet. I was parked in the middle of the park and I could hear some of the highway noise if I was outside or had my door open but it was not intrusive. Minimal artificial light at night. Access to the park is pretty easy but depending on which direction you are coming from you might have to go several miles once you get off your highway. Nice washers and dryers in laundry room at a great price. Plenty of grassy areas to walk my dog. I would definitely stay here again if I should be coming back through Wilson. - nanzhere
Nov 2015 - $23.00
Before booking we check passport america website and their website to verify their rate. They do not give the Passport America rate, we only needed a 30 amp and paid the higher rate. Pictures not as per their website. Old campground, not well maintained. Old washrooms and not very clean. Washer and dryer newer and clean. A lot of old campers or rv's on site with seasonal friendly campers, not like the staff. Noise from Hwy 301 and from the trains running not far from the park. We would not stay here again. - Liz & Bob
Jul 2015 - $34.00
This is a basic RV Park and probably the best for the area. Not a lot of shade but sites were flat, gravel, and very decent spacing. The store was a little worn for wear but the staff is very helpful and friendly. WiFi is weak - nothing new.
My wife did laundry (no a/c) - but, got it done. Our Mini Schinauzer enjoyed the collection of Donkeys.
We stayed here mainly on reviews from this site and I would stay here again if in the area. Wilson is a great little town - love the Whirlygigs! - Larry Jenkins

A nice stopover off of I-95, very little road noise. Full hook-ups with excellent water pressure, electrical service, cable and wi-fi. With our stay being right in the middle of leaf dropping, they were thick and every where. We stayed on one of the two premium sites and everything was ankle deep in leaves. A campground worker did come on the second day of our two day stay and blow the leaves from right around our RV.
We noticed that a great deal of this campground seems to be long term campers, either by their monthly sites or by the numerous cabins that litter the campground throughout. It appears many may be workers in the area as they leave early in the morning and return later in the day. We were certainly not bothered by that at all. The campground was very quiet or at least it was during our stay.
We would stay again if in the area although we did feel the nightly rates were a bit high even for a premium site which we feel should have a complete concrete/asphalt parking pad as well as the patio area. Our site did have the concrete patio but a gravel pad. At nearly $60 per night - a bit high. - Holiday Rambling
Sep 2015 - $46.00
What a nice surprise this park was! It is located just far enough away from I-95 to be without the constant traffic noise, but it is very convenient to the highway. The sites are huge! We were only there for one night so appreciated the extra long pull through site, but unlike most pull-through sites, this one was under some big trees and was also very spacious width-wise. We were very happy to be there, and will return, next time for a longer stay. Our Verizon signal was strong here, too. The only negative was a huge blow up slide that was near our site, its noisy generator left on all night. Hopefully this was just an oversight. - dbcordello

We were looking for a nice park close to I-95 and we definitely found it. When we called, they were very nice on the phone. I got the same when I checked in. Sites were long pull through. Easy in; easy out. Good satellite reception. Walked the whole park; all was clean and well maintained. - Couch9748

First time camping here although it is less than 30 minutes from home. There are just a few sites that will accommodate a popup camper. We stayed on site 22 which is large enough to work for us. Fairly quiet campground other than the airplanes coming and going into nearby RDU. Overall a nice campground if you can live without electrical hook ups. - jrackley
Mar 2010 - $18.00
Nice park but not designed for campers. There are 2 maybe 3 sites that can accommodate a trailer. There are no hook ups and they close the gate at 2000 until 0600. Nice park to visit and maybe if you camp in a tent it's fine but not for a camper. No alcohol allowed in the park if that's a consideration for you. - tx_rambler

All the lots were roomy and wooded, and very private. They had picnic tables, a fire ring and lantern hook. The beach and playground were well kept. There were hiking trails, and to get to the beach, it was quite a ways. - lynette47

This is 4th time that we have camped at Falls Lake, Holly Point Campground. It has secluded campsites and we are close to the lake and to the beach. We were here for 3 nights for a get away in our motorhome. Close to our home, 1 hour drive. It has large wooded sites, with electricity and water at many of the sites. - BobbyH
Jul 2014 - $25.00
We have camped here many times and love this campground. Many of the sites are huge and very private. It is always very quiet, even on the busiest holiday weekends. Access is excellent for large rigs. The one negative is the small, cramped showers. But we usually find the bath houses clean. There is good lake access for boats, and there are a couple of swim beaches. There is also a playground. We will keep returning here. - Ken H.

We were in the area for a competition and at the same time the local Nuke plant was undergoing a refitting. This essentially means that every place in 25 miles where you could park and RV was booked months in advance for extended periods. The owner was very accommodating in that he promised us that he would find us a place with a plug and water if we needed it for the three nights we'd be in the area. He did and for that I am giving him 5 stars across the board. The park is clean and I have to admit to having paid 3x this a night for not much more. The service was exactly what was promised.
The park is essentially four lanes of parking sites with a water/electric/sewer post separating them, the sites are about 40 feet deep and 35-40 feet wide. There is a large grass lawn area between the two separate areas. This is not a destination Camping Resort and it is not claiming to be. What it is is a place to park while you do what ever it may be that you are in the area to do. We found it to be quiet.
We had 30 amp service, and that was all we really needed in early April, in the summer I would definitely want 50 for the AC. I didn't try the cable, but the TV brought in maybe 20 channels. Wi-Fi was there and free, it wasn't the fastest ever, but it was there, it worked and it was free.
I would stay here again and probably will as I expect to be in this area from time to time in the future. - blues traveler

Located on a working farm, this is a clean, quiet park with 40'x40' spaces, with plenty of open sky for satellite reception. Utilities worked fine and internet was good, although Verizion signal was weak here. This is not a resort, but an excellent place to stay while exploring the area. Lots to see and do in the Raleigh area and a short drive to golf mecca in Pinehurst and Southern Pines. The State Farmers Market Restaurant in Raleigh was very good, with all kinds of fruits, vegetables, meats and flowers just across the street. The manager here is just wonderful, escorting us to our space and making sure that all is right before leaving. We really enjoyed our time here. - ronboett

Park is mostly gravel. However, it is great for an overnight stop. Park is fairly close to the highway but no appreciable traffic noise. Owner is friendly and makes an effort to make sure everything is OK. Also there is a camp host available to address any problems. We will definitely use this park again if passing thru the area. - rjohnso3a

I stayed in Loop E which is a no reservation loop. My site was on the lake. Very large site. Small litter in the site. Fire ring cleaned out. Bathroom was out of service the entire week. No showers available in loop E.
No discounts available. - srn
Jun 2014 - $19.00
This is a nice State Park type atmosphere. We stayed in "F" loop, where there was no 50 amp service, but the 30 amp service was good, as was the water. The restrooms were OK, but could use a good update. They were pretty buggy. Our rate included a senior discount of $6 and we felt the rate was great for a waterfront site. Some sites are waterfront, some waterview and some off the water completely. The road in is paved, but sites are dirt and gravel. Some bigger rigs would not be able to get level in some of the sites. We liked it here and would return. - R&S
Sep 2013 - $22.00
We picked the best time of year to go to this state park (mid September). We were the only camper in our entire section the whole time we were there. It was less than 100 feet walk to the water to go fishing. This is not on the main part of the lake so there are not a bunch of powerboats/jet-skis flying by at full throttle. Sites were well shaded and had picnic tables/fire rings. Having walked around some I would highly recommend sites B77- B82 or B15-16. One problem with our site was a permanent lantern pole that prevented our awning from being extended. Since the site was so well shaded this was not really a big deal. The other thing is that the gates close at 8 pm, so you have to be back before then or you are locked out. - Jeremy B
Aug 2015 - $15.00
Lovely location and employees were pleasant. Sites are far apart and separated by trees. (More crowded close to the beach). Our only minor complaint was that our fire pit hadn't been cleaned in some time. We will definately return here. - SDeasy

We stayed at Cross Winds for Easter Weekend with five other families. We enjoyed camping on the lake with a small beach within walking distance. The kids enjoyed the water, kayaking, and riding their bikes around the campground. The sites are spacious, with plenty of room and trees between them. The sites are gravel and have a large pad with light post, fire ring/grill, and picnic table. The sites were clear of debris when we arrived. Water and electric we easily accessible. Trash cans were located every few sites and emptied twice each day. The roads through all three loops were well paved and a boat launch is available near the campground. The bath house was close to our sites and well lit. They were cleaned daily, but got messy toward the evening with heavy use. The showers were warm, with a push button access. We enjoyed our stay at Cross Winds and will return. It was convenient, clean, and fun for the entire family. - dmaerz

This was a tent camping trip with a group of 6 people. We got 2 site side by side. Lots were level and had water/ elec., no sewer. They had the normal park grills. Plenty of room for 2 tents and 2 hammocks. Bath house was clean but needed painting. Everything worked as it should. We had loud group down from us but Rrangers came by and calmed them down. We would go again. - mj1angier
Oct 2015 - $25.00
The park was full during our stay due to the NC State Fair. This was a first for us. The park is now open 24 hours which is a little confusing, but the main gate is no longer locked at dark but the campground gates are. We didn't venture out after dark but were told we could. The park is nice, clean, and quiet. But, it is 8 miles from Highway 98 at Neal Middle School on Baptist Rd with little markings. I am told due to restructuring of park operations, Rollingview may be the only park open in non-summer months for that district. Regardless, Rollingview is a good park to stay in. - Montyriley

Oct 2012 - $22.00
We've always been big fans of the NC State Parks system, and we will continue to use them. It's unfortunate that budget cuts are really noticeable. The cleanliness of the bathhouses is the lowest I've ever seen at this park. I would have had to have been very desperate to use the showers. Some of the sites no longer have gravel covering them as weeds have taken over. That said, the sites are very generous in size and private. We had a great time, and we will camp here again. - EJABsAdventures

Manager at front desk is rude. DO NOT come before 3 because they will not check you in even though park is 1/2 empty. Lake only open on weekends, the price they charge is ridiculous along with the rules. You basically pay to just stand there in the water. Sites and hookups were good. - buckingthenorm

If you follow the directions on the Military Famcamp website, it's easy to find. We called ahead for reservations so check-in was easy. There are only 5 pull-thrus on their map. Roads are sandy. Pull-thru pads are concrete and level surrounded by sand and lots of pine trees. No wifi, no cable. No dog park but plenty of woods to walk them. Office staff was helpful & professional. Hookups were a little far. Nice place for 1-2 nights at $25 for 50 amp, full hookups. - Flippitti

Pleasant surprise. Decent size pull thru sites super clean bathrooms/showers. Very pet friendly. We stayed there 2 nights. A bit of the beaten path and harder to access plus no identified campground hosts present with minimal office hours. We would definitely camp here again. - pinkarmygal05
Jul 2013 - $12.00
This is a small, very peaceful park; one of those parks you are comfortable in from the start. The tenants, owners, and park employees were nice and helpful. Many of the tenants are workers at the local nuclear plant, and generally stay a month-or-more. The $12 rate reflects the monthly rate. We were charged $25 extra for water usage because we had/used our own board washer and dryer. There are no pads or patios; something for which I lower my rating. Many of the lots are not completely level; I had my front wheels almost off the ground, but a park employee had a wooden step there almost before I shut my engine off. US-1 highway is close, but not a factor. I would recommend this park. - carderh

As others have noted, the owner of this campground is exceptionally nice. He was very distraught that we had to use a less attractive site because they were booked solid the day we arrived. We weren't nearly as upset about it as he was. The CG is in a rural setting surrounding a pond. The sites and roads are gravel; they are fairly narrow and had limited area for sitting outside. There are tall trees all around the CG, but no trees in the sites themselves; satellite TV reception should be easy from most sites. Verizon service was fairly strong. - docj

It has been a pleasure staying at Jordan Dam RV Park. The grounds are very well maintained- grassy meadows, a new pond with a pier, big shady oaks and friendly people. The owners, are the most down-to-earth friendly hosts you will ever meet- they even helped us set up our camper! We have never experienced better service. We love the convenience to the lake and the quiet country setting. The sound of crickets and frogs are the perfect backdrop for an evening outside. We definitely have plans to return to this campground. In our opinion it is heads above the others in the area- just check it out for yourself and you'll see why. - AreV

The owner is one of the nicest, most helpful people we have come across. We stayed 5 nights. Even though he was on vacation himself, he called us, as we were arriving and guided us to the right spot. We forgot part of our sewer hose when we left. He called and then drove nearly 20 miles to return it to us. The grounds are nice and very quiet. This was the best we could find in the area and we are really glad we chose this park. We highly recommend it. - Frank and Pam Lee

We camped at Parkers Creek in the group tent area. We enjoyed the camp site. It was well organized, clean, and the trash was picked up daily. The fire ring was well positioned with benches for 40. Access to the lake was convenient from the campsite. The bathroom facilities could have used a thorough cleaning. The beach area and playground were enjoyed by the children. - dmaerz

This park is the closest to Sanford and surrounding area. I was told that improvements are slated for next year. I pulled a 30 ft. TT up a fairly good hill with a tight turn at the top to get to the RV sites. Once there the pull thru sites are just parallel to the road. Most of the parking area for the trailer is fairly level as I only did minor adjustments with a couple of blocks under the wheels. The rest of the site is not so level. Some are better than others. 3 sites are full hook up and 3 are partial. My stay was nice and peaceful as there was only 3 other campers there ( there's only 6 sites total). All in all I liked the park but its not for those that expect the standard RV park. I was visiting family in the area and this park was the closest I could get to them. Personally, I hope they improve the RV sites and the immediate camp sites so its a little bit nicer. The RV campers have sole access to the rest rooms as they are locked and not open to the other park users. You are given the code to the locks for the park gates and rest rooms. I would use this park again. - Ken56

This is a small RV Park in a grass field behind an extended stay motel/lodge halfway between Fort Bragg and downtown Fayetteville. The sites are on gravel and level. There is plenty of space between RVs. A few small trees are around. There are no facilities that we know of, but we didn't ask. The open field has no fence around it, or security of any kind, but we never felt unsafe and the neighbors, some of whom had been there for weeks seemed just fine. It's not a destination park but it's near everything if you are in Fayetteville for a few days of visiting. - jwillie44

Awesome park for the price. Full hookup for $12 a night. A lot to do at the park's nature center and about town. Only one drawback is lots are first come first served and you can stay for 30 nights. I noticed some locals tend to get a lot and set on it for the summer and are not even there except for a few times a week. Would like to see the city regulate this so more people could enjoy the park and the area. - welkertp

This is a gem of a park for $12/night. Sites are large, level and plenty of space between sites. It is very clean and peaceful.

This is a no frills campground, but I really like it. Art and his wife Bobbie are super nice and go out of their way to make you welcome. I camp here often when I work at Ft. Bragg several times a year. I love the fact it is downtown. EVERYTHING is with a couple of miles from the campground...Walmart, Kmart, malls, theaters, any place you want to eat. Great location! There are no restrooms/bathhouse/pool. Internet is good close to the office. I think he is trying to upgrade the signal to improve coverage. Passport America friendly!!! - gregwoodmbsc

This "park" is Art's back yard at the dead end of a street. We got the last site on the day of our visit. Most of the sites appeared to be seasonal, as residences for the occupants. The nearness of an air force base and army base makes this a convenient location. Our stay was an overnight layover and we got the Passport America rate, for which there is no limitation. The location is a few miles off I-95, but we would probably stop for the night again. - Jay Rutherford

This is not a campground, but rather 12 RV sites in Art's backyard. There are currently 10 full hookup sites and two W/E sites (which as of this writing 5/08 are getting connected to the sewer). Art's RV sites are very convenient to Ft. Bragg/Pope AFB as well as anything in Fayetteville. Very little street noise from the main drags of Skibo or Cliffdale. Shopping and eateries galore about 1 block away on Skibo. Propane refill is available at Owens Garden Center directly across from intersection of Windemere and Cliffdale. $12.50/night reflects Passport America rate with no restrictions. - PattieAM

Lazy Acres is a fine place to stop on your way North or South. It is very convenient to Rt 95 without any road noise. There is an airport nearby. but it is no issue at night.
This was our second time staying there. The staff was excellent and we were guided to our site. Although it seems to be an older CG, the bathrooms/showers have been refurbished and are excellent. There are many permanent sites but they are well kept. We were in site 7. It was reasonably level with easy access, The only difficulty I had was with the 50 amp service. One line was not working and I had to use the 3o amp outlet instead.
I do not know the Fayetteville area so I cannot recommend any local attractions.
All that being said. we will definitely stay there again as a travel stop. - SchnoodleCamp

We stayed there twice overnight passing through. Owners were nice and stayed open until 7pm. Wifi and hookups worked well. We would stay there again. - Sleeps Two

Office staff was great and let us pick between 2 sites to accommodate our big rig. Site was shady with a lot of trees as in entire campground. Entrance wide, easy to get in and easy access off 1-95. will stay here again in our travels towards Florida. - BOBDEB01

This place is a dump! The internet photos are misleading. If you don't mind old car and RV parts laying around everywhere, sloppy looking trailers, and an overall trashy look....then you'll be ok with it. At $32 a night it is much higher than state parks. I left as soon as possible! Definitely don't bring children here. - R Moutz

I stayed here 3 months while working in Durham. I am guessing that about 75% of these sites are full of RVs that don't ever go anywhere. The manager is helpful and patrols the park endlessly. I felt very safe here. Besides the sites that have "permanent residents" the shorter term sites seem to cater to patients of Duke who come from all over the country for medical care. There are no showers. Sites are NOT level. Washers and dryers are ineffective. Electric is included. Cable and Internet are available through Time Warner Cable (ugh). This is really not much more than a trailer park. This place serves if you have things to do in Durham... It is NOT "fun camping" and certainly not an RV "resort". The rate is figured at 420/month divided by 30 days. - TravelRNFullTimer

Others call it quirky, I thought we were smack dab in Deliverance. Many people live here in their trailers and sites and some of them appear questionable but are harmless evidently as we had no problems while there. We would leave most of the day and return in evening. The on site manager, is extremely helpful and watches over everything so it was safe despite the shady appearing surroundings including the trashy looking mobile home park on the hillside above. We stayed for a week while in the area because it was the only RV place we could find. Spaces are shady and it was difficult to get DISH reception in the woods however we could pick up some local channels. Spaces are mostly rickety and uneven but the jacks leveled it out. It is surprisingly quiet. Some people say they stay here for months on end. For us, it was OK. This area of North Carolina really should get on board and develop RV sites however it seems they prefer hotels. Birchwood takes only cash or checks and it is cheaper to stay for the week so we did so. - Pat and Jerry
