The rate reflects TT membership. With only 30 amp sites we were very uncomfortable in 90 degree temps. Very few level sites. The staff were very helpful as with all TT campgrounds. We would stay here again. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Motorhome.
Tips for other Campers:
Close to Dayton, the National Museum of the U.S.A.F. is amazing and Cincinnati, Ohio.
We stayed here in a 40 foot 3 slide motorhome. We are TT members hence the $1.00. The park is typical TT, 30 amp, water and some sites are sewer too. The interior roads are gravel, the sites are gravel too. The site we had was very un-level. ATT was good, water pressure and electric also good. The park staff, especially at check in could not have been more pleasant . We would stay here again. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Motorhome.
We like this park for its easy access to I-71. We stop here every year on way to and from Florida. Nice people, nice staff, and with Passport America discount a good value. The park roads are gravel but well maintained and can accommodate big rigs. Sites are gravel. Ours was not quite level and could have used a little more gravel. As this was the first weekend, they were opened for the season. It appeared they were still doing some spring maintenance. This park only has 2 pull thrus which are really just curves in the road but it worked well for us as we only spent 1 night and left early in the morning. There is no cable so if you are relying on a satellite dish it may be a problem getting signal as the park is mostly wooded. The few sites without trees appeared to be occupied by seasonal campers. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Fifth Wheel.
Tips for other Campers:
Since this is an Encore park be sure to reserve ahead of time. They do not do drive in only reservations. Also, its on a first in gets first choice on sites. You cannot hold a specific site.
This campground is on a nice piece of property. The maintenance is poor. You are allowed to choose your own site from those available (many or most are taken by seasonal trailers) and we did, only to find that the first 2 that we chose had defective electrical connections. Worse, when we tried to call the 24-hour help line, no one answered after several frantic calls. In fact no one ever called us back. There are a lot of weeds here and there and I wouldn't be eager to jump into the small indoor pool. The walking trails through the 3 loops and the woods are pleasant and there is a pond with geese. The bathrooms and showers are old but clean. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Motorhome.
Rate reflects TT zone pass. Only 3 lots with 50amps and those are taken by annual users. We liked this park. Didn't know what to expect based on previous comments but we thought the campgrounds were well maintained. There is a incline in the back of C loop but it isn't necessary to go there if you don't want to. We stayed in A loop. Everyone was very nice. There are several annual renters but everything was well kept. We enjoyed our stay and will come again. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Travel Trailer.
We arrived on a Tuesday afternoon and were told that there was only one full hook up site left. We went straight to it and claimed it. The reason there is a shortage is because, as is common for Thousand Trails, they have sold so many sites to seasonals. The preserve is nice - wooded and hilly. Using my cell booster I had solid 4G. We were in loop A and had a poor connect to park Wi-Fi. We were there over Independence Day and there were plenty of activities scheduled. Some got rained out, but that's certainly not the park's fault. On Sunday some of the seasonal residents brought in a couple of gospel quartets for a concert. It was very good. You want A or C loop. You really don't want B for anything other than a short stay. It is the original park with tighter sites, no sewer hookups or even restrooms. While there we especially enjoyed a day at the National Museum of the USAF. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice and clean park, hard to get a sewer site as they are mostly taken by seasonal campers, which is not what Thousand Trails was set up as. Park grounds kept very clean, well cared for. The pool is indoors which is nice but in dire need of a paint job, you could feel the paint flaking off the bottom. Wi-Fi only at the lodge which is usual for TT parks but got slower as more were on it. We will return. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Fifth Wheel.
Thousand Trails rate. The campground re-opened April 19 for the current season, and much remains to be done in the way of maintenance. Unusually heavy rainfall has brought some muddy and soft conditions to some roads and campsites. B-Loop is water and electric, C-loop full hookups and treed, A-loop has some water and electric sites and some full hookup sites and most are open for satellite needs. There is a high number of annual sites which makes finding a good site a real challenge. The campground does have ponds but there are no waterfront sites, only view sites. Wi-Fi is weak at best and available only in the store/office area 12 PM to 7 PM daily. Our wireless hotspot pulled in a strong signal. A neighboring site daily left a little dog alone during extended times away from the campground and the dog barked continuously until the owners returned. The campground is understaffed. Some power pedestals are inconsistent; #49 spiked to 139 votls and our EMS automatically disconnected until the voltage returned to normal. Pool/Spa should be opening for the holiday weekend. This is a quiet and well located campground. We would return when in the area. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a very nice campground with decent roads and well kept sites. The grass is kept cut by a contract service and looks very nice. The Verizon signal is only 2 bars but it does work, as does the Mi-Fi, and we had a strong Dish satellite signal. Since we arrived a few days after Labor Day we found that there were NO activities scheduled, no food service, the beautiful indoor pool was being drained and the hot tub was out of service! Many of the sites are occupied by long term renters who only take up sites without being here. I know Thousand Trails needs money for maintenance but this is not what many of us bought into. The staff were certainly friendly enough although they didn't have much to do that we could see. There are no 50 amp sites but the 30 amp service was quite good as was the water and sewer service. This is a nice area to visit and we would stay here again while in the area. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for 5 days in our motorhome. The hot tub was a welcome relief after a few days of driving. We found the showers, laundry room, and adult and family lodges clean and in good working order. Like many TT campgrounds, many sites are reserved and occupied by long termers, but everyone was friendly and neighborly. Many families were here and the campground was full, but not loud or noisy. There were many pets camping with families, but no problems were evident. I didn't see the previously mentioned owl lady. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Motorhome.
The park is very quiet and there are quite a few people there. There did seem to be a large number of retirees there but there were plenty of kids for my son to play with. The restrooms/showers were cleaned regularly but could use some updating. The staff was great and very friendly. The best thing there was the Owl Lady. She has a Barred Owl call that will bring them running. Every night there would be 3-6 of them flying around. It was great. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Tent Trailer.
Better then average T.T. park, but not very many satellite friendly sites. If you like shade, this is the place for you. A/C power better than most T.T. parks, but still no 50 amp sites. While we were there some moron with a weed wacker trimmed around all the power/water posts and sprayed the RVs with grass and rocks. I was so mad I couldn't see straight. Nothing like getting your paint all chipped up. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Motorhome.
Pool and hot tub not in service while we were here (opening week for the season). Three fishing lakes. Fair Verizon data & voice. Fair air TV. Level gravel sites. No cost to Thousand Trails members. About $40 for non members. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Motorhome.
Beautiful park. Very well maintained. Loved our stay. The only drawback is most of the best sites are taken by long term lease. Didn't use to be that way. Not a fan of that. But, enough sites available that we got a nice one. We camped at Thousand Trails Preserve / Wilmington in a Motorhome.
