The campground is fairly quiet considering it is located on a very busy street. Turning into and out of the campground with a motorhome and a tow vehicle is challenging. The price is a little higher than other campgrounds in the area but as with most KOA campgrounds the staff is friendly and it is a clean well maintained and welcoming place to stay for a few days. The WIFI and cable TV worked well. The showers and restrooms are modern and clean. The store is well stocked and there seemed to be plenty of activities for children to do. It is centrally located to visit most of the attractions in the Wilmington area. The pool looked clean and was very busy on the 2 hot days we were there. I would recommend this campground to anyone staying in the Wilmington area. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Motorhome.

Roads and pads are all gravel. Slightly dusty. Some highway noise. Entrance drive is sort of hidden in other businesses and we missed it and had to find a place to turn around a 40' RV. Otherwise, a pretty good park. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Motorhome.

Very good stay as usual. Well maintained and friendly staff. Appear to be a lot of longer term campers. Not many open spots for December. One is escorted to the site. The park is kept very clean. Nice dog area and always stocked with Poop bags. Main draw back is exiting the park. Market Street or Hwy 17 is always very busy. Use caution in going in any direction. There are plenty of food stores, gas stations and things to do. This KOA is very centrally located. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a very nice campground. It was very clean and well maintained. I really liked the escort service. When you arrive, a staff member in a golf cart shows you to your site. This person also helps guide you into your site. The only downside for us was a lot of local traffic. Had a hard time getting on internet. This park was a little pricey. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed here for two nights in one of the pull through sites. Staff was constantly cleaning and helping campers. No complaints other than the inflated price. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We've stayed in this KOA several times and it never disappoints. Well laid-out, level sites, many recreation options and convenient to Wilmington's attractions. There's even a service station with a car/RV wash right at the entrance to the park. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here for 5 nights while visiting Wilmington and found it to be an excellent park. The service was outstanding, the facilities were excellent and you could not have asked for a friendlier staff. Very nice dog park area plus plenty of places to take the dogs for along walk. We paid extra for a Deluxe Patio Site including a gas grill which was well worth it. The only downside is the roads are not paved and there is ALOT of dust/dirt in the air. Other than that we fully recommend. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Motorhome.

Above average KOA. Our site was one of the premium ones with a BBQ and patio that we did not use but it was all they had left. Thus my low value rating. The parking surface is white sand or fine gravel that sticks to your feet so like Mom use to say "take your shoes off" when you go inside. It's about 10 miles or so from down town but not a bad drive. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed here a couple of weeks ago. We had asked for a back-in away from others because our dogs bark at passers-by. That was accommodated and it was shady to boot. Everything was very clean. We had help from the staff in backing in and they picked up garbage bags in front of our unit several times a day. Didn't use the pool because it rained so much when we were there, but it was very clean. Free paper and coffee in the morning. A little pricey, but I've paid as much for much less to offer. Also so convenient to restaurants, grocery, and nearby sights. I would definitely recommend it. The only thing I wish they could do is put in a walking trail around the woods surrounding it to have a better place to walk dogs. They did have a nice dog park, but walking is better. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Motorhome.

This was a nice KOA campground. It is big and nice to take walks in the evening. They had herb gardens around the campground for the campers to enjoy. There was a pool and playground for the kids. We did not use either, but they were well maintained. The campground is only 15 minutes from the beach, and we used it as our launching pad for Fort Fisher and other attractions not too far from the area. We would stay here again.

This is a well-maintained and well-managed KOA. We planned to arrive on UNCW move in weekend and were given the last spot, a back in with no sewer hookup. Expecting the worse, it turned out to be a roomy, level space near the pool and bath house. We've stayed here several times previously and will definitely be back. Free Tengonet wi fi, very good digital cable. Some sites have been remodeled with added concrete patios and permanent fire rings. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We moved to this campground after a bad experience at another local campground. Wish we would have booked here first. This is probably one of the cleanest, best run, with the friendliest staff CG I have been to in a while. It was excellent. Despite being pretty full the sites are decent size and it was nice and quiet. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Motorhome.

I paid $45 and didn't have a sewer hookup. This is a very clean KOA. Nice playground, pool (unheated) and one of the best dog parks you're gonna find. Laundry ($2 per load on washer and on the dryer). There is a well stocked store on site and free coffee in the morning. I'm sure there are events during the busy season. Cable was very good. My 7 rating is mainly based on price and Wi-Fi. Regarding price, I would expect a park like this to have a much more reduced rate for no sewer hook-up. We did have 50amp, cable & water on our pull-thru. But no sewer at a KOA should be more like $30/night IMHO. They use a 3rd party Wi-Fi provider (Tengonet). We had a difficult time logging on with our coupon code. Once we got in (the next morning) it worked well the rest of our stay. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is always a handy place to stay when in the area. Close to shopping and many of the sites. We were only here 2 nights to see relatives and went to see them and also shopped in the historic downtown Front Street area that dates back to the early 1800's. Lots to do here and the Azalea Festival was just ending and they are still prolific and beautiful in people's yards. The staff here is nice. Like most KOA's it seems a little overpriced although it is very well kept. This time though, they had planned to replace water mains so even tho we had a full hookup, we were without water for the whole day and until after 9 pm at night. At 3 pm when my husband went to check on when they might be finished, they stated a couple of hours. When he came out, a fifth wheel had just checked in and my husband said well, a few more hours without water. And the guy stated they never told me the water was off and my water tank is empty. So, that was an oversight on the office's part in not telling incoming guests so if they needed water or to dump, they could do so before going to their site. We will come back here again. Are usually here at least 1x per year--we were here last in December. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Motorhome.
