Park was nice. Very secure - maybe a little overboard. The pull through site was fairly level and easy access. Would have liked to stay a couple days, but this was a quick overnight. No road noise even though they are right off the highway. Would stay here again. We camped at Appalachian Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate we paid reflects a special deal from an early RV Show. The campground is actually a very nice place but for a transient it is somewhat hit or miss. If you get a good site you'll love it, if you get one that has you blocking your wheels up before you level, you won't feel so good about it. Some sites are nice, level and wide and you'll think you've found a new all time favorite. However, a lot of sites are out of level with the front being above the rear so keeping your back tires on the ground is difficult, and/or they are out of level left to right as well making for a REALLY tall first step. The good sites have the sewer connection below the level of your camper, some however think you can defy gravity when dumping. Some sites are pull through, these are very long and NARROW. We fit our rig on our site, but had to pull the car up next to us right to the picnic table and the fire ring was way back to the rear of the site. Not much room. Put a chair in front of the rig and your feet were nearly in in the road! Activities here are some of the best. We do Halloween here for the last several years. They have a dance, a haunted house, trick-or- treating, site decorating contest. This is a lot of fun. It is too bad that some many of the sites are seasonal. If more of the good level sites were available we'd try to get here multiple times each year. My last problem is that Wi-Fi is NOT free. For what this place charges Wi-Fi should be included, same for the fishing at the pond. We will return, but only if we can get certain sites. We have had some really good times here, but you have to go in with your eyes open. We camped at Appalachian Campsites in a Motorhome.

Liked Camping at Appalachian Campsites. Even though close to I78 not a lot of road noise but some. Gravel roads. good size spaces. Exiting I78 a little tricky, right then quick left. If unsure, go through the Truck Stop. Lots to do. Fishing pond ($), Lake for kayaking fishing close by. Restrooms were clean. Close to a number of different attractions. People were nice, staff was nice. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Appalachian Campsites in a Travel Trailer.

Pull through sites #300-320 are all out in the open, very small and not very level. We saw several motorhomes on these sites that had wheels in the air. From reading other reviews, this has been a problem for a number of years, but has gone uncorrected. I would have rated the campground higher if these sites were nicer and if they had provided free Wifi. Most of the really nice sites are set aside for seasonal use. There were a lot of activities taking place, and people genuinely seem to have a good time here. There were a decent amount of amenities and they appeared to be in good shape. Campground personnel were all very friendly. The only thing that didn't make much sense was there only appeared to be one dumpster for the entire campground, and it was outside of the security gates of the campground, and it could be a VERY long walk, depending on where your campsite is located. They would pick up your trash from your site if it was left out. We camped at Appalachian Campsites in a Motorhome.

It seems that this campground has fallen into a state of disrepair. The sites needed the grass cut along with weed whacking and the site had 4X4's boxed out to back into. They were rotting and decomposed. This was a beautiful campground several years ago, I don't know what happened. I do not think that I will visit this campground again. The water lines are above ground and exposed and the sites had barely any stone on them and were all unlevel. We camped at Appalachian Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

I was referred to this campground from a coworker and visited their website for more information. I also made 3 phone calls for additional information prior to making reservations. Each phone call I was given conflicting information concerning the fees and deposit. Nothing I was told matched what was posted on the website. They had a restaurant on site which we planned on dining in a lot during our stay, but once we got there were informed it was CASH ONLY, which I think should have been advertised as we, and another couple who reserved a site nearby were unprepared. I was also given conflicting information about the onsite fishing and was told we had to keep what we caught which required us to purchase additional supplies to comply; however, that wasn't the case. We also paid a fee to fish but noticed that all of the other patrons at the pond did not have the required bracelet so I think if they are going to charge a fee that it should be enforced. Although the campground was clean I found it a bit difficult to navigate, as well as I felt it was a step back from what it could be. The pool area although nice had a grassy area to put chairs which after the rain made the ground wet and the chairs uneven. I think the pool deck area should have consisted of more concrete and felt the grassy area was done to save the expense of a better suited material. The shower rooms did not have paper towels, only electric hand driers, and there wasn't any hooks or adequate rugs which made showering inconvenient. Having only camped in cabins I felt their prices were high for what you got. There was also a lot of "nickel & dime" fees for various situations which we have not encountered at other campgrounds. On a positive note the other patrons were friendly, and there was a variety of activities to accommodate different age groups, and there was a lot of patron participation. Overall our experience wasn't bad just mediocre. We camped at Appalachian Campsites in a Campground Cabin.

We have stayed at this campground, but was about 4 years ago. We stayed here this past weekend, and it was a spur of the moment thing. Called Thurs for a Fri and Sat camping. Only site available was in their 'big rig' area, 50' pull through. No problem. When we arrived we discovered why this site was available. It was terribly unlevel. Even with my jacks and 4 boards under the rear jacks, I couldn't get our motor home level. The whole area was a problem. Everyone I spoke with was unhappy about the not even close to level sites in this area. The sites we stayed at before were nice and level, shaded, and large, but are now seasonal sites. So for transit RVers you're relegated to either the non shaded big rig sites or the back in sites (some have shade). The site next to ours had huge depressions in the grass area. We paid premium money for a non premium site. We won't be back. We camped at Appalachian Campsites in a Motorhome.

Stayed here for the first time Memorial Day Weekend and made reservations for next year for the same weekend. We stayed in the wooded sites directly behind the store, very spacious sites, they don't have sewer hook-up, but the honey wagon came around on Sunday. Lots and lots to do at this campground. Very kid friendly, they have activities planned from morning to night. Our 4 yr old granddaughter had a great time. Nice pool area, we didn't go in because it was crowded, it was very very humid this w/end, so it's understandable it was full. They had a D.J. one nite and a live band the next. They have an ice cream stand & a little restaurant. They also have a game room, playground and a pond for fishing. The only negative I have is the employees in the store were not very cheery. It seemed like we were bothering them. Other than that I would have given them a 10. We camped at Appalachian Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

We camped here overnight on our way south from Maine, having stayed here back in April on our way north to Maine. Just like earlier in the year, we found this campground to be very nice, and everyone was friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. Rate reflects Passport America.

This was a nice quiet campground with nice activities. Nice friendly staff to greet you upon check in. Overall a clean campground. I would have given it a ten, but a few seasonal sites were really an eye sore. We would go back here. We camped at Appalachian Campsites in a Motorhome.

This seemed like a very nice campground but it rained the whole weekend we were here. They had a lot of activities and a nice bingo night on Friday. They also had a great ice cream shop with a full service restaurant. The sites are not that large so we were close to our neighbors. The permanent sites were unbelievable. Some of them were landscaped nicer than my home. The staff at the campground also were nice. The store was well stocked. We would go back again but maybe get a site down by the pond. They were much larger sites. We camped at Appalachian Campsites in a Fifth Wheel.

We're staying here end of June through Labor Day, 2010. Very nice place! It features friendly staff, lots of activities, quiet and peaceful even though close to the interstate. Seasonal sites are beautiful, obviously people care a lot about this place. There is plenty of things for kids to do and lots of kids always around, but not running in packs and making trouble. Great staff. The little restaurant serves very good food at a great price, weekends only. Two minor gripes: the store could be a little bit better-stocked and the wi-fi, while reasonably priced, is slow and weak. Do not hesitate to stay here, it's a great place!
