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.

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.Undo

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 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.Undo

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.Undo

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.Undo

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.Undo

This is one of our favourite campgrounds. The staff are great and always helpful. The park is well maintained and very clean. Our only (minor) complaint is that they keep trying to put us into large, pull-thru sites, that aren't very private. After asking, they then put us into a smaller back-in, easy enough with just a 22' TT. We will stay here again. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Travel Trailer.Undo

Our 2nd stay at this park and we must have had the shadiest spot in the park. It was great, especially in the hot summertime. We did not have sewer connection though--all those were booked so we used their bathroom facilities and found them to be clean and with paper products always available. Our unit backed up to Hwy 17, but we had no trouble with "highway noise". Our dogs enjoy the 2 enclosed dog runs. We were close in to all the activities we wanted to attend as well as the mall and restaurants. Since we are KOA members, this is a park we will continue to use since we come here to visit family and enjoy what the area has to offer. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We stayed 4 nights at KOA. We have family in Wilmington and this is the only campground there. It's only about 15 minutes to the beach, too. Bathrooms very clean, nice big pool, dog park in the back, playground for the kids, check in has a small store. Nice friendly workers there. Some are KOA work campers. We have stayed several times there and always had a good time. It's a little on the expensive side, but we have a KOA reward card and it takes some off the price.

This has been our most expensive campground to date. We have been on the road for two months. The sign isn’t visible until you are on top of it so we passed it by and had to turn around. We had a pull through site in the back so it was nice and quiet. It rained very heavily which caused flooding around the rig. Packing up was awful with all the flooding and standing water. They had an ice cream social and clogging presentation the two nights we were here. Both were fun to attend. The park had a lot of turns to maneuver around when leaving, not fun. It was a little out of the way for the touring we were doing (Civil War sites), but don’t know if there was anything closer to where we needed to be. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

I would rate this park an 8.5 to 9. The check in was friendly and the office was very clean. The maintenance staff seemed on constant patrol to keep the place very clean. We will stay here again if in the area. It is very close to Wrightsville beach. The price was high for 30amp service even on a holiday weekend. The connections stretched my power and sewer to it's limits as they were reversed from normal. They need to update all spaces to 50amp and put in lower poles so they do not interfere with slideouts. The size of most sites seemed very comfortable and not on top of your neighbor. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Motorhome.Undo

This is one of the nicest KOAs we have stayed in. Staff are friendly and helpful, our pull through site was level and shaded. Streets are grave, but in great shape. Sites are large with room around each unit, unlike some KOAs that line sites up as close as possible to get more in. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. The pool looked clean and spotless and everything in the park is well maintained and clean. The free Cable and Wi-Fi worked well. The park is centrally located to the historic section of Wilmington. The rate reflects a KOA discount. This park would have gotten a 10, but we feel the cost is a little high. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Motorhome.Undo

The Staff was Friendly and very accommodating. The property was very well maintained. They have family oriented entertainment on the weekends and a short nature trail. I found it to be one of the few KOA's that was worth the price. The park roads are sand but smooth. WiFi is Tengo Net but free to campers. Also there is really nowhere else to camp in Wilmington. Because of traffic on 17br it is very difficult to make a left turn into or out of the Campground. On Arrival take exit 416 off of RTE 40 to 17 turn right at 17br Upon exit make a right and take Gordon Rd back to 40 Rate was for a full hook up pull through site with KOA Kamper discount.

Worked for us, since this is absolutely the only campground in the Wilmington area. We had to be here for a wedding. Upon check in, the ladies at the desk were very welcoming and gracious. However, the rate was suddenly $20.00 more a night for our reserved site. Already overpriced at $60.00 a night, they were now trying to charge a ridiculous $80.00 a night. This was cheerfully corrected as I (fortunately) had a printed copy of my reservation from KOA, and a confirmation email directly from them stating the $60.00 rate ($54.00 with KOA discount). Apparently they upgraded a few pull through sites to "patio" which are very nice, but we had reserved a back in with full hookup 50 amp. Someone must have switched our site, as they now had us in one of the upgraded patio pull throughs. For 80 bucks a night you are still cramped in like a large parking lot, with bad dirt roads, and no privacy between sites. It was raining when we got there, making everything muddy and sticky. Highway noise is non stop also, but better towards the back of the campground. For the price they are getting for these sites, they really need to pave the interior roads. Even most state parks we go to are paved. Come on KOA...spend some of that money and do it right. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Motorhome.Undo
