The nightly cost I noted is based on the monthly rate. To start, I will give the good: I have been here nearly a month and have found my stay to be quite pleasant. It is a clean and quiet park. Staff is gracious and helpful. The ladies room was spotless. I had need to use the shower one night and found that to be spotless as well. It is conveniently located to access all you need in Washington and there is a little market right across the street. (I did not use it so dont know what they sell in there.) There is a humongous grassy area for dog walking. The waterfront along the river is lovely and a short walk from the overnight/transient RV area. Each spot has a picnic table and fire ring. My complaints are minor but annoying nonetheless. The wifi is usually good but not always. My Verizon wifi is iffy sometimes--sometimes good. The area for the overnight/transients is just an open grassy field. Could not keep the dried cut grass out of my rig, it's made a real mess. And then when it rained, it was a muddy mess. There is some gravel in the RV spots but it really needs refreshing. There is no gravel on the path to the dumpster and after the rain it was muddy and slippery. The spots are very close together. A few pot holes on the roads through the park. Not a big problem unless you are riding a bicycle. The laundry room only has two working washing machines and three working dryers. For a park as large as this, that means guests are jockeying for use of the laundry room. I wound up using the laundromat in town one day. All that being said, it is a nice, gated park and I would stay again if I were coming though the area. We camped at Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Washington has a lovely downtown waterfront. See the Sylvan Heights Bird Park in Scotland Neck. The historic town of Bath is a short drive in the other direction and history buffs might enjoy it. A little longer drive is the Lost Colony site on Roanoke Island and just a hop from there is the Outer Banks. If you are here in the off season and like to swim or just want a place to exercise, a few miles away is the municipal swimming pool and an exercise room. They offer aqua aerobics classes.

Very clean park. Some tight turns, but manageable. Excellant waste management. Very popular for long term people. Limited sites for short stays. Close to community. Great staff. We camped at Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects combination of weekly/monthly rate. Electric is separate. We stayed here for 7 weeks as we had a medical issue. Note that medical treatment in Washington and nearby Greenville is very good.
This park is mostly park models with a grass area for transients. Well kept and friendly. Owner was very accommodating to us since we had a medical concern. Big rigs are welcome. Had no problem leveling. Turn after gate a bit tight; just use caution. Pool and shaded outdoor pavilion and the park has activities for children and adults. Fishing and boating access in park and nearby. Would stay here again. We camped at Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Not impressed. If you're open for the season, everything should be open and available. Only place for overnight or short stays is the back 40 row of 20 spots I believe. Wind is pretty strong there too and you can't use your awning because of it. Not good since there's no shade. Place is filled with seasonal and full timers in all the good spots. No balance to this and is typical of all campgrounds who entertain seasonal stays. Makes other feel unwelcome, myself included. Seemed to be experiencing electrical problems during my stay. Had to replace some fried electrical equipment upon return home. Owner is very nice. Maintenance crew seemed to have bad attitude and burned out. They should be replaced with folks who appreciate and know customer service and care about the place. Instead of messing around for 2 days with a bad breaker trying to keep power on, this $2 item should have been replaced then. Was told my year-old camper was the problem. Odd how I've had no issues at 7 other campgrounds this year and 6 previous year. Place is advertised as resort to justify a marked up price yet it's just a campground. I will not return. We camped at Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

From 10, deduct a point each for No Wi-Fi, no pool (recent rain), the clothes washers closed (drain problem), mini golf course in poor condition, the playground equipment is dirty, and "resort" advertised. We stayed one night. This is a good overnight that added "Resort" name and $15 to price, but does not have resort amenities. 250+ spots are residential. Bathroom very clean partly because it gets very little use. Extraordinarily long and level pull through sites. Good Sam rate. Saw no kids other than ours. Very good folks, but overreached on the advertising. We would not return. We camped at Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice park, clean and very quiet. All the people in the office very friendly and helpful. Family atmosphere, would rate a 10 except for the Wi-Fi was only available right at the office. Lots of permanent residents but I have found that these parks are usually the best maintained. We camped at Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Pool was closed. Laundry room was closed "indefinitely". Entry gate did not work well. Otherwise an attractive and nicely maintained park. Lots of grass, not much shade, beautiful creek. Friendly staff. Note that most residents have full time park models, which are nicely maintained. Park was very quiet except for the people next to us. We complained and park management was very helpful. We camped at Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate shown reflects Good Sam weekly rate. Park is mainly made up of park models and long term residents. There are a few waterfront sites for transients but appear to be for smaller rigs. Otherwise, the transient sites are in the last row. The sites are pull through, very long, and level side to side. But front to rear, there is a hump in the row of sites which affect your leveling. Wi-Fi is non-existent at the sites. The park is a good value and the staff was very pleasant and helpful. We camped at Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Our site was not shaded. It was sand, grass, but not level. Plenty of length to pull through, but not well defined. Utilities were good and gravel roads with some tight turns. It's a gated park. We camped at Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

This was our first time at Tranter's Creek Resort and Campground. We really enjoyed talking to the staff which are very friendly and helpful. The campground is laid out well with the monthly spot rentals on one side and the nightly spots on the other next to the playground and putt-putt course. The campground is very wall maintained and clean. The sites are fairly level and great water pressure! Very close to downtown Washington off of HWY 264 and HWY 17. We went to visit Twin Lakes Campground which is bigger but not the same well maintained look and feel as Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground. On downside to Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground was the road noise and no shade trees but that's just a small one. We'll be going back since we received two free night's coupons from them.

Sites are long and easily accessed, but void of any shade or cover. Campground is well maintained. 50A is available and was confirmed true 50A. Staff is very friendly, store is lightly stocked, but a Wal-Mart is close by. Pool was very nice and clean. All the river sites appear to be occupied by permanent campers. Sites are fairly level with turf surface. Trees have been planted but are several years from providing shade. We'll probably return but in the late fall when it's cooler.

We camped here for a month and it was an extremely pleasant experience. The site we were given was just across from the creek and we were able to just plop our kayaks in and go. The site was the biggest RV site we have ever had anywhere. We got to know the staff and you couldn't asked for more pleasant or more helpful people. The pool was spotless and bath house was always immaculate. The only negative is that the Wi-Fi was terrible due to restrictions on usage even though you had to pay for it. We made lifelong friends here and can't wait to go back. We camped at Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is excellent for a overnight or couple of nights stay. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The pool and covered shelter area were very clean. We would stay here again as well as recommend the park to other campers. We camped at Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground in a Motorhome.

Staff was very helpful and we were able to look at several sights prior to setting up. We chose this park due to the ability to kayak almost right out from the site. The river was absolutely wonderful! Slow moving, wooded on both sides and the fish were jumping. The town of Washington was close and had a very pleasant waterfront area.

This is nothing but a nice, glorified trailer park. The full timers have the best sites by the river and nearest the river. Our site, as well as most transient sites, were very narrow. Our awning was even with the next site's sewer pipe: yuck! The people were friendly and there is a nice big pool. No shade what so ever, so don't visit here when it's hot! There is weekend activities for the kids and grownups: miniature golf and a playground. They have gravel roads. The park was clean and our site was fairly level. The shower and bathrooms were very clean. No cable TV, but we picked up 12 digital, local stations including 5 PBS channels. The price for the internet was ridiculous. There were a number of transient sites: all with no shade and many too narrow, unless you like smelling your neighbor's sewer. Don't think we'll be coming here again. We camped at Tranter's Creek Resort & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
