Very convenient park, about a mile from I95. Our site was crushed stone, and we were very happy to have a pull-through site & did not have to unhook our TT from our truck. The WIFI was very good & we got several OTA TV stations. Restrooms/showers were dated, but very clean. The highway noise was very noticeable, but the park is a perfect Passport America value for a one night stay. There is an area for permanents but it was separate from the area of our site. There is a very hard hairpin right turn to get to the street the park is on, so be aware. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I used the Swamp Fox as an overnight stay on my way to Florida. It's an older park with lots of permanent residents, but otherwise passable for an overnight stay. My site wasn't level, but it worked fine for my needs, and the power and water pressure were good. There was no wifi at my site. I think if you manage your expectations and use it for an overnight stay, you'll not mind the Swamp Fox. One thing of note, there's a reasonably tight hairpin turn to the right to enter the campground road off the main road. My 40-footer with toad scraped the trees on the campground road so I could make it. Yours might as well. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Motorhome.

This was an overnight stay and was exactly what we needed. The staff and owner are super and restrooms and showers were spotless and freshly painted, although old. The grounds are well kept and it was very easy to get into our campsite. I think Swamp Fox is a very nice site, very reasonably priced, and has all the basics. If you want bells and whistles and entertainment, go elsewhere. We will come back. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Motorhome.

Conveniently located RV park, some long-term residents and a number of sites used by north/south travelers. Have stayed before and would return for an overnight. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Motorhome.

Park is very basic. Not many 50 amp sites. Right off I-95 and close to eateries and food stores. Dirt interior roads. Used to have gravel sites but most of gravel is gone. Low water pressure. OK for overnite. Most campers seem seasonal. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this park many times in years past. However, our most recent stay showed that this park has declined significantly (the price has not). It is in desperate need of cleanup and repair. Sites are uneven and the hookups are needing repairs. Tree limbs are hanging in the roadways and need to be cut back. The access roads are narrow and potentially dangerous. This is not worth the price even for an overnight stay. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Motorhome.

Swamp Fox is a nice place to stay for someone traveling through. It is close to I-95, and easy off and on. The facilities are clean and well kept.

They take Passport America, so one night costs less than $20.

The sites we've had the 3 times we've stayed there have only water and electric.

There is an easy to get to dump station. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Travel Trailer.

It is great staff was amazing. The residents were great. The bathrooms were very clean. Although no pool you as a guest are allowed to use the pool at the hotel in front of the campground. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Motorhome.

The main thing this campground has going for it is it is right next to I-95. There are numerous eating places, gas stations, and grocery stores nearby. That being said, because it was race week (although different dates were reflected in Passport America); they were not honoring those rates and their normal rates were higher. $48 a night for a 30 amp site with water and sewer. They are very limited. I think 2 total 50 amp sites. Many of the sites are occupied by long term residents and many sites look junky to say the least. The staff is friendly though and the residents are friendly. The dump station is hard to access because the trees and foliage on adjacent properties hang over the dump site area. We could barely get out of the camper door because of the overgrown bushes which SwampFox can't trim unless they get the owners' permission. So, plan to dump elsewhere. We will need to make reservations far in advance to come back here in order to get a 50 amp site which one one need in the middle of summer. April was OK with 1 ac running although it was in the low 80's. We would stay here again as it is convenient to visiting friends and relatives. There's not a lot of choice in this area. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Motorhome.

Great Camp ground. I don't really know the nightly rates cause we stayed here 2 months, so we paid very reasonable monthly rates. Close to everything. Very friendly staff, and great neighbors! We hope to be back before the year end and will absolutely stay again!! We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We liked the fact that it's right off of I-95. Good for an overnighter.

There are a lot of seasonal people who return every year for some reason. We wouldn't stay here again unless we had to. It's laid out very strangely, and the roads are very narrow. Getting into the campground isn't a problem, but getting out may prove difficult. The exit roads are not marked at all, and RVs are parked on them so you have to find another way out. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Motorhome.

This rate reflects Passport America. This is a very easy park to get into late and was very easy to find site. We got held up with the closing of the Interstate and did not arrive until almost midnight. Pulled in and site map was on door. Found site easily and paid in the morning in the office. Very nice staff and nice campground if you need a stopover or need to be in area for a while. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Motorhome.

The price reflects the Passport America rate. This is a good place to stay overnight, but I'm not sure about a longer stay. It's really not a "destination" campground. It served our needs well as an overnight stopover. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Entrance roads are very windy. (Our GPS warned us to take an "extreme" right: she was right!) We would stay again if in the area. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed here a week. $138. Easy on and off of I-95. First put us in a "too small spot" but moved us out front under large pines, big site, 50A, no sewer, but we can go a week without a sewer dump. Weak Wi-Fi, Good laundry, quiet, friendly, take credit cards. Lot of long term campers. Would recommend. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Motorhome.

We pulled off for an overnight stay. It was fine. I abhor extra person charges...2.00 per person over two people. This wasn't stated anywhere, even in the office. Just a pet peeve. Probably won't be back. The sign on the door indicated that there were only electric and water hookups, no sewer. As I pulled in at 9 pm and left at 8 am I didn't see or use any amenities or facilities. I also can't comment on the website address or the GPS address. For some reason, it comes up as a golf course in the GPS and internet. We camped at Swamp Fox Campground in a Motorhome.
