This park is an old KOA but now a Good Sam park. Its an older park with nice spacious sites , friendly staff , and great beach area. There are a mix of sunny and shaded spots. Utilities are in good working order and correct location. Location is ideal for a drive to sunset beaches and restaurants. Food shopping is a short drive away. This park could use some updating and interior road maintenance. We would visit again We camped at Brunswick Beaches Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

The staff was friendly. The sites was a nice long level pull-thru. Utilities worked well. Catv is limited, but it is a satellite friendly park. I thought it was a little pricey for what you got, but we have never been in this area. It was definitely the best park in the area. We always use RV review and it has not let us down yet.

Clean facilities. Friendly staff. Large pull-through sites. Level and grassy. We have stayed here before and enjoyed this campground. Nothing fancy, just a nice well maintained park. The only thing that needs attention is the inner entry road. Pothole are developing. That aside, I would definitely recommend this campground. We will return! We camped at Brunswick Beaches Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
We paid the Good Sam rate. Pro: The sites are large, the staff friendly and helpful with information. Generally, the park seemed well maintained. Con: Whoever engineered the sewer connections had 40-foot motorhomes with far rear dump valves in mind. My 23-foot travel trailer would have required a 30-foot sewer hose to reach the sewer line. The park felt barely in use, with few others here. This former KOA felt deserted. We camped at Brunswick Beaches Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Nice, clean campground. Everything worked well and there were plenty of open areas for dog walking. It would appear that the campground is trying to become a little more upscale than it was when it was a KOA. We would stay here again. We camped at Brunswick Beaches Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

No longer a KOA now a Good Sam park. Shallotte Brunswick Beaches RV Resort. Sites are level with full hookups. Nice fishing pond I caught a Bass. Wi-Fi works very well. Not many sites occupied in January. They are really fixing up the park sense we were here last January. We camped at Brunswick Beaches Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Did not stay here. Picked the campground thinking it was a friendly reliable KOA, but found the opposite. It is no longer a KOA. The office was closed (all day Thursdays) and only a few sites were occupied. I didn't see a single human being. A sign said the Wi-Fi internet was not working. There were no services and no amenities. I expect more than this for $40 a night. Decided to leave and camp elsewhere. We camped at Brunswick Beaches Camping Resort in a Motorhome.

This park is no longer affiliated with KOA. We stayed here for three nights while visiting family in Ocean Isle, five mile away. Nice level sites with nice grass at each site. Most sites offer at least some shade during the day. Staff was friendly and the facilities were very nice. If looking at the map of the facility, sites 7 through 12 were, in our opinion, some of the nicest. Level and shaded. We were in lot 10. We WILL definitely return. Wonderful, quiet campground.

This was a very quiet campground. No activities. Staff was friendly. Park was clean. They have a 2 acres dog area/ picnic area. That area had many holes, and while I was running my dog, she tripped in one of these holes. Just beware. The bathrooms were clean but during hot days they were really hot. The swimming pool is very small. The park is old but looks good for its age. For us it was too far from Myrtle Beach. (It's a 35-45 minute drive.)

We chose this park because it was close to family I was visiting. The park was very clean, and quiet. They have a pool, and that is about it for kids. I was really surprised that there were not any planned activities for the Labor Day weekend. Every KOA we have stayed have always had activities. You never really saw a lot of staff. The same girl worked the counter in the store, and a man sat at the guard house at night. The site we paid for said shade, but there wasn't any. The sites were level, but our neighbor's sewer line was right in front of us. It is a short drive to beautiful beaches. If you are looking are a nice quiet getaway without a lot of amenities this is the place for you. We had a nice stay, but not sure we would come back with our kids.

We stayed two nights. Staff did answer questions but were preoccupied with things other than the customer. Park was well maintained; showers and restrooms were very clean. Sites were level; very little shade. The pool was clean and well maintained. This is a quiet park and supposedly close to the best seafood in North Carolina. On the staff recommendation we tried Ella’s seafood, not a good choice. WiFi was available through a third party, but they have free DSL and that speed was excellent. Not good enough park to try again until we try some others in the area. We camped at Brunswick Beaches Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
This park is very, very quiet, clean and has level sites. There's not much shade, great for satellite TV. Has very friendly people, the owner is on site every day. We camped at Brunswick Beaches Camping Resort in a Motorhome.
The staff was not very friendly. There wasn't allot to offer at the campground, the kids did enjoy the pool. Sunset Beach is close by and is a nice beach to visit. We camped at Brunswick Beaches Camping Resort in a Travel Trailer.
We really enjoyed this campground. It was very clean and the staff was great. Our site was at the end of the row and we had a lot of room. The pool was very clean. We will be going back. Sunset Lake and Wrightsville Beach just up the road. Very easy to get to. We camped at Brunswick Beaches Camping Resort in a Tent Trailer.

We made reservations online, then tried to call the campground with a question the next day. No answer and no callback. We tried to call again enroute, same result. We wondered if they were open. All of these were daytime calls. We arrived behind some folks who were parked at the office scratching their heads. The office was locked tight at 1 p.m. on a Saturday. A camper on the way out, who had worked there during the summer, said we should all just pick a site and that we probably wouldn't have to move later. She said all the staff was in Myrtle Beach, 30 miles away, for a KOA convention. They weren't expected back for a few days. Just after dark, we walked our small dog and encountered an incoherent individual walking a large dog who urged his dog to be aggressive toward ours. We picked ours up and went back to our camper. We could then hear this guy wandering around in the empty sites near ours, muttering, talking incoherently and generally creating a frightening situtaion. I stood outside wondering what to do. Then I went inside momentarily to report to my wife what was going on outside. When I opened the door to go back outside, the large dog jumped into the camper, and I fully expected the man to come in right behind him. But no one was there. Just the dog running loose. After ejecting the dog, which was just a very big overly friendly puppy, I walked down to an empty site and found the guy with his head down on a picnic table. I roused him and told him he needed to get his dog under control. He was still incoherent and unable to tell me if he was a guest at the campground or what campsite he was in. At that point, thinking he was not a campground guest, we called 911, and in the meantime he came and got his dog. A while later, a deputy called us and said he encountered the guy, who actually WAS staying at the campground. He told the guy he must stay on his campsite when he was in such a state. The deputy told us that the dog had been turned loose again by the time he got there. A while later, a guy in a golf cart came to our site. I don't know if he was "security" or not, but he obviously worked for the campground and said he saw the police and went out to see what was going on. He said the guy in question had been at the campground for several months and had never been known to drink. A couple of days later, I found the dog's leash on the same picnic table where I had found the supposedly drunk guy. That same day, a campground official opened the office for a few minutes and was then headed back to the convention. I think she was probably one of the owners. She was apologetic about the situation and reiterated the idea that the guy was not a drinker. We wondered if maybe the guy was having a medical problem, and she said they would keep an eye on him. When we reported that we had observed four incidents of big dogs off-leash, she said they were probably taking advantage of the fact that the campground staff was out of town. She also apologized for the inconvenience of no one being at the office for a few days. Maybe there is another side to this story, and I have tried to tell all of the other side that I know. But this was a nightmare camping situation for us. Big dogs were running loose. All were friendly, including one that jumped into my lap in my own campsite while I was holding my Yorkie. No harm done, but this campground makes a big deal on their website about controlling your dog. But they don't make a big deal out of it when you report transgressions. As you might have guessed, we won't be back. And at $44 a night in the off-season at the beach, it is the most expensive place we have ever camped.
