Rough place for the most part. Very accommodating though. Nearly all shaded and woodsy. No grass, all dirt and crushed stone. Several units that haven't moved in years and shouldn't have been inhabited but were. Almost no grass for dogs. Would not go back. - johns3

Convenient park for visiting Taylors or the surrounding area. We were here for a five day church conference in Taylors. Many permanent or semi-permanent RV's, but they have some short term spots available. There are no toilets or showers, but full hookups with 30 or 50 amp are available. It worked for us, and we would stay here again if in the area. - bill1443

We stayed here for 2 nights while attending the Greenville AKC dog show. Mostly permanent and long-term residents, but the "overnight" sights have plenty of room and the roads are wide. The residents were very friendly and the owner (even though I never actually SAW her) was accessible by cell phone and very accommodating and helpful. Very quiet park with lots of trees. Great location close to downtown and Carolina First Center. No Wi-Fi or cable for overnight guests (I think they have cable for long-term). - melissab7

Beautiful area on the shores of Lake Jocasse. Getting there in our 37ft Motorhome was a little unsettling as the roads to the park are not exactly big rig friendly. The park itself is nice, the campground is a little tight and roads to sites are definitely not for big rigs. Sites are not the most level. We were in site 59 which was long enough for our rig and tow car. Site was clean. Didn't use bath house but took a peek - looked a little worn and like it could use some updating. We did use the laundry which was in next loop over and it was "okay" - not the cleanest facility. Since it was not in walking distance we had to take dirty clothes in car. Parked as close to laundry as we could and when we returned to our car, we had a warning ticket for parking in a lot, only 2 others cars there, that was designated for tent campers. The park needs to designate parking for those using the laundry facility. Also, upon check in, the park staff was not the friendliest. Seemed annoyed with tending to campers waiting to check in and abruptly gave us directions to camp site on park map that turned out to be inaccurate. Don't think we will camp here again mainly because of not being big rig friendly but will definitely plan a day trip to park to enjoy the beautiful lake. - Highway Honu

This was our first time visiting this park. Built in 1990, it is one of the newest of the state parks, which to me, makes no sense why they did not add sewer connections. Overall, a very nice park and campground. All of the staff we met were very friendly and knowledgeable. The park was clean and well kept.
Park Rangers make frequent rides thru the campground. The bathhouses were mostly clean - the floors stayed wet and dirty because of rain. One bathhouse does have a laundry, which we used and everything worked as it should. We did experience a lot of heavy rain during our stay which caused our site to wash mud and water to our door.
The sites are well spaced, electric good, great water pressure. OTA TV was hit or miss. AT&T cell service and LTE was good. The park has nice paved trails that lead to the tent sites, bathhouses and lake area.
I do not believe they had/have a camp host which may account for why our fire pit looks as if it has been some time since last cleaned.
I do want to give another big thank you to the gentleman at Burrell's (?) Automotive, a few miles from the campground. We had a mechanical problem with our vehicle and he stopped what he was doing to help and get us going again.
NOTE: On weekends this park and lake both become VERY crowded! - dtaylor

I stayed here for several days and had reservations for more, but left early for other reasons. The camp ground areas are very nice with a lake in the mountains with good views. I have a 40' pusher and while I made it through both loops, loop #1 is extremely tight and 40's in my view shouldn't be allowed on this loop and originally in #41. Loop #2 is better and finally stayed on site #15. 30 amp hook up worked as it should and has water, but didn't use as I'm already winterized. The views are nice, roads paved, extra pad for a tent and gravel, wooded, picnic table, fire ring, and nicely cleared for rear overhang of the pusher. Originally, I was in loop #1, site #41, site is easy to back into (once in that area), but a large oak wouldn't allow for awnings to be put out on the passenger side of the coach, the Ranger quickly agreed to move me to loop #2, with about 3 sites for my size, I chose site #15. The sites on this weekend in this park were about 95% occupied with everything you can imagine. The State Park shop was about the best I've seen to date and PR's friendly. The drive lanes were covered with leaves and difficult to see the drive through the loops, which again, are supper narrow, but I'll chalk that up to all the leaves falling this time of year and harder to keep up with to keep clean. My main issue with this S/P other than the tight fit is that the interior of the showers/restrooms needing a major make over with additions to hang your clothes, towels, shampoo and soap, etc. The sinks in the restroom area also need a major update. The shower/restroom area was somewhat cleaned each day, but a bit more time spent on it could have improved this. I did use the showers in the morning and night, of course the restrooms at various times of the day during my stay. If the restrooms/showers were in better condition, I would have rated my stay to 9, but rating it at 5 just for this issue. I'm referencing the loop #2 RR/shower area. - gsc66

The previous reviewers that classify this park as a bait and switch park are correct. This CG is in the current PA catalog and on the PA website. They are not on the "discontinued campground" list. Our rate was $44. a night, which is too much for this area. Oh, they do call this place a "resort". It does appear as if a lot of work was put into this CG. The small office is very nice and has a deck outback. The laundry room is small (2 each washer and dryer) and clean. Restrooms are also clean. Free wifi was satisfactory, the free cable was not. The picture was very fuzzy. There was a cable repair man out but the clear picture remained clear for only a short period. Another unpleasant occurrence was a sanitation pump truck working a few feet away from us for over an hour. Both noisy and smelly. Even though we will pass through here twice a year, we won't stay again. - hunkahunka

We chose this campground based on the most recent review thinking corrections had been made with new management. When we called we were told that they took Passport America. Got here and was given site #5 which is five sites from a busy highway. Told on the phone we would have site #26 (which was a big back in site away from the noise that stayed empty during our visit). The site was the most difficult in five years of RVing and I had to jack knife to get in. The "stream" in the back of the sites are a trickle of water so "waterfront sites" is a misnomer. The bathrooms in the office are outdated and has mold issues. There is no clear on site manager or person with legitimate power to make decisions. When we asked for a receipt, there was a discount but the office person said they do not take Passport America and we were charged for "free Wi-Fi." The Passport America logo is up on their door. Sounds like bait and switch. There are 13 sites with permanent residents which lend a different atmosphere than the "resort" they claim to be. Some of the permanent RVs looked old and deserted but were being occupied. The game room and new laundry are in utility sheds up a hill. The game room shed has some video games and that is it. I would not return which is unfortunate because the grounds are well kept and with reconfiguration of sites and on-site management this could be a "resort." But not under the current circumstances. - TailsAwagging

A great park. We have stayed here twice, once in June 2010 and we came back in Dec. The summer visit was great and we had a wonderful time so decided to return in Dec. We got everything we had hoped for, even a white Christmas. We love this park and now they have a pool and game room, and laundry room, with two new showers and pool rec area opening this summer: it just keeps getting better. I can say: this is the nicest park, the best place to come for a family, to hike, rest and relax. They have a lot to offer and the price is very reasonable. A very clean, neat park and you can tell the management really cares about how the park looks and wants everyone to enjoy their stay. - jhouse

This is for sure one of the best parks we have ever used! They greeted us as we arrived! and then escorted us to the site and helped us back in, showed us every thing, just over the top greeting. The place is as clean as can be, all gravel roads and sites. Never a problem with water, and it rained a lot during our stay. Plenty of shade, and quite. The location is great, 6 miles from Travelers Rest downtown, 17 miles to Greenville and surrounded by several other small interesting towns. We arrived planning on staying 4 days and stayed for 10. - Gerry9

Small campground with about 38 spaces and just a few that will hold a real big rig. However the sites that do hold a big rig (Deluxe pull through patio sites) are really long and very wide and spacious, level and easy to maneuver into. The park is run by live in owners and is very well maintained, clean, and far back enough from US 25 that it is also very quiet. Pool, dog run, playground and small hiking trail provide good amenities. We would stay here again when in the area. - LucyS

The owner of this KOA was always very helpful. He even went above and beyond normal customer service. It's a relatively small park, but very private and quiet. - Michaelg

First time to camp here but won't be our last. Beautiful lake view on many of the sites. Entire campground was SO clean and well kept. Staff could not have been friendlier! sites are mostly level unless rated for a smaller RV. I highly recommend this campground! - ScoobyD

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Twin Lakes. Such a clean and beautiful area. The staff were amazing - always available for questions and suggestions on local hikes and attractions. We will definitely return and highly recommend it! - Meyka

This was our second stay at the campground and once again, we loved it! Very clean, easy to navigate our 37ft motorhome in/out to site. Love the views of the lake from almost every site!!! Staff is always so friendly and helpful!!! - Highway Honu

For longer stays, such as retirees for a season or longer. Gravel roads, sloped sites; trees, shrubs & grass make it much more pleasant. Sites are close, but it is no parking lot. Fully self-contained units only. Many have added decks or patios.
Only special feature is the Flower Mill, which we didn't get to see. - Carolina Girl
Jun 2005 - $20.00
A truly relaxing stay. Quiet and tranquil. Monthly rates are only $200. Will stay longer next time. The Old mill was great for BBQ's. The waterfall at the river could be heard at our site and made sleeping at night peacful. The people are great and many of them have been here for a long time and know the area well. - llmannjr

This is our 5th stay at this fabulous RV Park. Big open sites, very easy to navigate, good grass between sites, lovely staff, clean restrooms/showers, picnic table, large pool, grounds well tended, trash collection, excellent wifi. The park is on beautiful Lake Keowee. Peaceful and brilliant night skies. We certainly recommend. - Harris England

Park sits on a hill over looking a nice lake. Roads are paved and pull through pads are gravel, long, level and spacious and with a picnic table. There are no trees. Our campsite was close to lake so view was terrific. Wifi was slow. Park has docks and boat ramp. - Tom Willing

Short, sweet and to the point: We'll be back! Beautiful campground on Lake Hartwell. Easy to navigate with our 45'. This place was really nice, clean, spacious, great hook-up, lots of water pressure, internet was also good. The site we had was quite level. In fact, all the sites looked good and level. Driving in and out was easy and had more than ample room to navigate. - Full_Timers_2017

The staff was friendly as advertised. The narrow gravel road up to the office was dangerous and a car actually had to back up the road because we were halfway up when we met. The rope blocking passage to the campsites was useless as it was not locked and was only a nuisance to the guests. The site for a mid-sized (29') motorhome was too small. Once the motorhome was in place, there was no place for the car. We squeezed the car in and we were unable to open the storage bins and outdoor kitchen doors. Our "full hook-up site" did not have sewer. The Wi-Fi was inconsistent and the phone reception was spotty. Our GPS didn't even work on the way out so it was exciting to travel blind until we reached civilization. My big complaint was we stayed there with Hurricane "Irma" approaching. Even though the bands that reached North Carolina were "only" tropical storm strength, we decided to not chance the gusts with a 12'6" high moving target. When I mentioned it to one of the owners that we were leaving, he almost mocked me telling me it was going to Kentucky. We left, and sure enough gusts were up to 60 mph in the mountains of NC. We won't be back and won't be suggesting this place to our RV friends. - Charlie P54

This was our first stay at Black Forest. The campground was clean and the staff was very friendly. The sites were a little tight, but once we got backed in/parked (which was very easy & pretty level) and set up, the closeness wasn't too bad (thankfully, we had really nice neighbors). Our site had full hookups (including sewer) and power boxes located on both sides, so very convenient no matter what type of travel trailer or RV you are using.
They do have a large clean pool and offer a pancake & sausage breakfast for $7. There were a few cons, too, though. The campground is a good distance away from the city of Brevard and Pisgah National Forest, so it isn't convenient for those who really plan on spending the majority of their time bouncing around the city. The road up to the campground (from the main road) is a very narrow dirt road and can be a little tricky if you meet another car on your way in or out.
The WiFi should not even be advertised as an extra feature as it's non-existent unless you are up very, very early before anyone else logs on and barely available even then (with no cell service available, it would have been nice to have just in case). Lastly, there's a rope "gate" that you have to take down and put back up every time you come or go in your vehicle from the campground. It's really a useless thing other than being inconvenient as anyone can walk around it at any time and there's no lock on it to keep anyone out.
Overall a very nice place to stay and we'll definitely consider making a return trip. - FlowerChild7275

Most sites are heavily wooded and the campground is very hilly. We upgraded to a premium site upon arrival so we could get one where our dish would work (it did). Ota was good with and the WIFI was decent. No AT&T but Verizon worked. The roads are gravel so they get bumpy and are pretty dusty. The bath house was clean and spacious but quite a hike uphill from our site. The pool was large and clean. Pretty convenient to Brevard. - Crottys

Very nice County owned campground. Lots of children, dogs and various types of boats. We had a site on top of the hill with great views on the lake. we camped 3 nights in a 30' Class C. - Hey You

This park was completely redone over the winter 2016-2017 and re-opened April 2017. All new 20-30-50 Amp power pedestals and hose bibs. All of the RV sites have been graded and fresh gravel and crush&run added. Sites are mostly level but you may need blocks or wood to get your RV completely level. All of the roads through the campground are now paved. The layout of the campground was not changed so the previous map should still be good and the map on ReserveAmerica appears to be correct. The downside of all the renovations is there is a lot of bare good ol' Carolina red clay. They have seeded all of the bare areas but it will take awhile for the grass (or weeds) to grow. Until then, if it rains (it did for us), there is a lot of red mud around. The bathhouses were not redone and are a bit dated but were clean when we were there. This will depend upon the campground hosts though since cleaning is one of their duties. There are two for the campground. This was a "shakedown" trip for us to see what we'd forgotten to put back in the trailer after the winter. We only live a few miles from the park and drive over often because it is a nice park. The day use area has two boat ramps and a group of nice concrete picnic tables on the lake. We had walked the campground several times before the renovations and what they have done is really a nice improvement. - WA4HTZ

We stayed in a pull through, site 10. It was terrible, right on the road, could not open our awnings, no yard to sit in, put our rug out, so close to park road people ran over it, dog poop everywhere, no one picks up after their dogs, lake is pretty, close to Clemson. - Sharronak

Beautiful park for tent campers. Very clean. Roads a little steep and other sites pretty small; we had no trouble with our 24' travel trailer on the site we were given, but I didn't see another site we would fit on. Quite off the beaten path. Owners were extremely nice and very helpful. - bdodson

Very nice park in a beautiful area just outside of Brevard. Owners are very friendly and provide a wealth of information about local attractions and happenings. Park was quiet and well maintained. Wi-Fi is available but spotty during bad weather. Cell phone service is nonexistent. Only negatives where the narrow streets, small sites and they don't take credit cards. If you have a small RV, its a pretty nice place to stay. - John G

This was our third trip to Brevard and our second stay at Ash Grove. Once again it did not disappoint! The owners are gracious and beyond helpful. The sites are beautiful. The location is convenient to town but far enough out that you feel nature everywhere. Every time we go camping my youngest son begs to be taken back to Ash Grove. It really epitomizes what camping is all about. - TNGina
