12 Parks near Troutman, North Carolina

This park was close to home for us in case things just sucked. They didn't. Really liked the park, and would stay again. You can hike trails, bike ride, and swim in the lake. The bathhouse was your average state park type bath house. Clean for the most part, but not 5 star or anything. Each site has picnic table, grill, and lantern pole. Down side is that it has no electricity, so we couldn't run a/c. On a really hot day this probably would suck. However when we stayed here the weather was very comfortable. The sites are very well shaded, so this helped keep things cooler. We were somewhat limited by not having electricity, but as dry camping goes this wasn't a terrible experience. They do allow generators but noise restrictions require they be turned off after 10pm. We camped next door to the camp host and they were very friendly and helpful. - Soph

Camped here with a large group of geocachers, some that stayed in the family area and others that stayed in the Group tent camping area. The family camping area has 33 sites, some with a view of the lake. Each site in this area has a paved parking area and large tent pad. My pop up fit well on the paved driveway but it was somewhat unlevel. Travel trailers larger than about 24 feet may be challenged for room. The one bath house in this area was clean and the hot water was adequate. The park was quite attractive and large. I would have given a slightly higher rating but was somewhat aggravated that the family camping area and group camping areas are separated by gates and they lock these at 6 PM. We had friends in the group site but could not visit with them after 6 pm. - jrackley

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

Problem we had with this park was difficulty in getting a 35 ft. travel trailer into our site. Takes a lot of backing to get in and out. They help guide you, but was still tight. Park looks nice and would be great for boaters. WiFi is good. Utilities are far in rear of site so you will need extentions. Some sites are all concrete and some just have concrete for your rig's wheels and the rest gravel. We would find another place to stay on next trip in this area. - padre

To call this a resort is a stretch. Granted, it provide boat access to Lake Norman, it doesn't have much else. There is a tiki bar, but it wasn't open. There were no other services. The couple running the park(workcampers) were marvelous. Because of our size, we were limited to just a very few sites, maybe 5. Because the steep decline to get to sites, we were directed to back out of our site upon leaving (about 200-250 feet uphill). It was obvious why we couldn't go down to where most of the sites were located, because we would have scrapped the rear of the coach. We could see where MANY travel trailers and smaller coaches had scrapped previously. Sites were nicely sized, level, with tables, and all with some grass. There was a nice, moderate-to-high priced, restaurant across the street. Food was good, buy probably not worth the price. Would not return. - EdGuru

Campground is hilly. They escort you to you site. It is a real tight fit for a 45' mh. You will have to back out of your site up the hill. Our site is on top of the hill over looking the lake. Very friendly and helpful staff. They give you a nice information packet when you check in. If you can try and unhook your tow vehicle before you arrive or you will have to pull in front of the gate to un hook so you can get on level ground. We stopped here to attend a college football game at Davidson College. We would return if in the area. - revolution1

Stayed for a week. When we called for a reservation they said they had one site left "in the back." When we got there it was way in back and too small. They gave us another which was OK. The park is large and rambling. I cleaned a bag of garbage, socks and plastic water bottle, etc., out of the fire pit. We were in the largest portion which looked like a run down trailer park. We had to drive to the pool and laundry as we were so far in the back. The pool and laundry were good. Our site was listed as a pull through but my husband noted large branches the day we arrived. He notified the office and they said they would "have someone look into it." A week later we backed out of our pull through. I would probably not stay there again unless I got a site up front on level ground. - TailsAwagging

We've stayed here off and on for the last year. We pay the weekly rate. Office staff is always friendly and helpful. If they have room, they let us pick our site. Good water pressure, wifi is ok most of the time. Most interior roads are paved, sites are gravel. Not all sites are big rig friendly or level. It's mostly permanent residents with many long-term workers from the power plant also staying here. It's an older campground but well-managed. No dog park. - Flippitti

Tried to over charge, but the folks that came in after us paid the lesser amount. They did refund us. Sites are very unleveled and short for a 38 ft 5th. Most all sites are for long term folks. was acceptable for a week. - Maverickpro203

We are in a 40' motorhome towing a vehicle. We stayed here for a few nights. The campground is 99% permanent residents (aka trailer park) with less than a dozen sites reserved for transients, off the main road in the middle of the campground. They're all back-ins, most are under trees. We had an FHU site near the lake. Some of the sites are terraced because everything slopes down to the boat ramp at the lake. But despite being terraced, our site wasn't level. Sites are gravel, roads are mostly paved. The hookups are way in the back but the sites are also long and wide so you have the room to maneuver your rig to reach the pedestal. Sites have a fire ring and a picnic table.
Wifi was nonexistent so we used our own. When you check in, you're charged $10 for an electronic key card to enter the park. You get it back in cash when you return the card at check out. That means that any guests who want to visit will have to go to the office and pay a fee just to see you. There's no off leash dog park, restrooms smelled moldy (I could smell it from the outside) and there wasn't a flat surface in the park.
The main reason we likely won't come back is because of the buzzing power lines that run right over the middle of the park. They're loud enough to be disturbing, and sound as if you have live electricity crackling above you all the time. Well you do but I don't want to constantly hear it. I don't understand how anyone can live under that. - Flippitti

This is a clean well maintained campground with a pool, mintature golf, and a store. Nice size lots with some lots have a great view of the lake. Would recommend this campground to other campers. Very friendly staff and campers. - Jaretaz

This is a large campground with great many 'permanent' seasonal residents. Campers are generally well cared for and grounds are neat and well kept up. There are not a large number of sites available for drive-ups. Currently there is a large workforce here to work on the local electric plant and there were very few sites available. Staff was friendly and helpful. - nancy42

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

Nice quiet campground. Owners are very nice, and they make sure you enjoy your stay. Not a lot to do in this area though. We stayed here because we have friends who live in Taylorsville, and the rates are cheap. They have a fun Haunted Trail the month of October and campers get half off admission. First night we camped there we had a loud group of tent campers beside us but the owners came out and told them they had to be quiet or he would have law enforcement sent to the campground. They remained quieter through out the night but were asked to leave the following morning. If the campground bathhouses were updated it would definitely make for a great campground. - fmbarnes

We gave this campground a 2, but only because of the very pretty surroundings. The facilities themselves rated a 1. We paid $33.00 for a water/electric site. We expected better, however, this campground apparently hasn't seen preventive maintenance in years. Filthy bathrooms. Laundry area and laundry machines were so filthy that we opted to do laundry at our next stop. Deep cleaning of the bathhouse and laundry room, and a fresh coat of paint throughout would do wonders. Deep in a valley, do not expect your cell phones to work. We would not return to this campground. - tomnorman457

We had a great time at this campground until the weekend/holiday crowd arrived. They also contracted the pool out to a group that trashed the restrooms. Owner proceeded to work with motorized equipment to clean the restrooms at 10:30 pm (Very loud). Great petting zoo but look out for the bee's. Otherwise the owners were very friendly, and made frequent rounds. Sites are level but obviously have some drainage issues when it rains. We would return on an off season weekday having made sure rain was not in the forecast. - jkintner

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
Aug 2013 - $50.00
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

This is more of a park for long term campers. Only 10 back in sites for people traveling. Super low water pressure. The first night we stayed, music was blasting till way past midnight. No security to stop it but it was a DJ. Very hard to make turn in this park and back into the site. It does sit on a beautiful lake. We would never go back to this park again. We were to stay 3 days but left out after 2 days. - Steve Solomon

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
