The park needed some work, but the lots were small more like a parking lot, close together, just enough room between units for picnic table. At check in you had to walk to a convenience store to check in. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

The reviews on this campground were not the best for a KOA but we decided to stay anyway. We only had 30 amp, water pressure was OK, site was level, easy to get around with MH and toad. Now for the rest of the story. An older couple pulled in with a class C. The lady got out and started to hook up, the older gentleman had trouble walking and then a young man from the KOA came by and did all the work getting them ready for the night. This was just something I never saw in all my years of traveling. A special thanks to this young man and this KOA. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Motorhome.

Had to drive from campground to convenience store for check in. Should had been on web site and told when I called. No escort to site. Sewer pipe broken with a plastic bag stuck in opening. Catered to long term units. All the long term traffic has to go through what few sites there was. Couldn't rest past 6 a.m. for the noise. Interior road very rough and pot holes. Little upkeep noticeable. Did not meet what I felt KOA standards. Would not suggest this place to anyone. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

There's nothing wrong with this park that some decent maintenance couldn't fix. The park is convenient to the interstate and easy enough to get around but the asphalt roads are crumbling as are the concrete strips that serve as parking pads. Rather than doing anything to repair the roads it appears that gravel has been haphazardly scattered around the site as if that is a solution. I'm not sure what park the previous favorable reviews were written about; it sure wasn't this one. It could be a decent park but that requires that it be maintained; currently it does not appear that the owners care about maintaining it. Verizon 4G signal was fine; there are tall trees, but we had no trouble getting a satellite signal. There is a small off leash dog run. One strange aspect of the park is the fact that the pull-throughs require you to pull through an unused site "behind" yours. Supposedly, they leave that site empty until someone is occupying the pull-through, but it does mean that someone could fill it while you are there thereby making it impossible for you to re-connect your toad, etc. It's obviously a work-around resulting from the fact that they don't really have pull-through sites. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Motorhome.

We arrived late at night and had to walk across a street and a parking lot to check in at the convenience store next to a bar. The site was a full hookup site and nicely level with a concrete pad for us to step onto from the rig. It was quiet and the facilities were very nice and clean. Interior roads were a little rough, but we did not have any trouble maneuvering. Other than the price, we were happy with our experience and it was perfect for one night. Also easy to get on and off I-77. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Motorhome.

A nice clean park near the Interstate, but without the noise. October visitors can enjoy a fairly sophisticated Halloween adventure adjoining the campground. With campground street names like Spooky Lane and Monster Way, it is obvious the owners are committed to the holiday. Very enjoyable. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Motorhome.

The good: They have just finished new routing into the park, which is still confusing, but do able. When you see the big KOA sign, notice the small sign on the top of it that directs you to the next drive way just after the Valero gas station. They now have a small mobile office for check in on the gravel driveway. Host was very sweet, welcoming, and directed us to the site. The bad: This park has sold itself out so many times it is now a hap hazard mess. Sold out to the permanent campers in the back, sold out to the Valero gas station which takes up the front entrance, and big time sold out to the Publix grocery store. The pool area (which we did not even see until we left), is across the parking lot and makes it look like it belongs to another property. The campground was cut diagonally and sliced up. The interior roads are horrible and full of pot holes and pits. The bath house was extremely dated and had five shower stalls of which only one worked and was not clean. We were placed in a pull through that was a double ender, narrow with your neighbor almost on top of you, and was really just a gravel parking lot with weeds. State parks we have stayed at are luxurious compared to this place and half the price. Won't stay here again. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Motorhome.

Our first stay in a KOA park. Very impressive, clean, big rig friendly, great staff. Brand new Publix supermarket next door is very convenient, and you can't beat their fresh fried chicken! One issue that is in no way KOA's fault is the off ramp of I-77 if your are traveling southbound...it is horrible! It is a double, right turn at the bottom of the ramp with these four foot tall reflective pole lane markers in between the two lanes that prevent you from swinging wide to make the turn. There is no way to make this corner without running over the markers if you are in the outside lane or running up over the curb if you are on the inside. If you are in the inside lane be very careful as there is a utility pole located very close to the edge of the curbing!!! We were in a 45' MH towing a 24' Featherlite race trailer...it was not a very nice way to end our day. What the heck was NC DOT thinking? Did I mention the Publix had really good fried chicken?

I agree totally with the two previous reviewers! We arrived after dark and in a driving rain storm. We were soaked by the time we hiked to the office in the gas station. The roads in the park are very rough and poorly lighted for identification. We would not stay there again. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Motorhome.

DO NOT STAY HERE! It has become a trash hole, hard to get into and sites are small. We told them we need a spot for a 40' 5th and we were given one that our back end is in the brush and the front is just off the road. The first thing you see when pulling in is NO OFFICE, it's in the Valero gas station 100 yards back. And the first two trailers are home made with trash all around them. KOA should drop this kampground - it's the WORST KOA we've ever stayed in and not up to KOA standards. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Motorhome.

Ditto from previous rater. This place is downright dangerous. We have stayed here every year for 5 years on our way south but probably won't be back. The Publix supermarket directly next door has built a driveway through the KOA entrance. You need to pull way in past that driveway and walk a long way back to the office to register. I felt so sorry for older/disabled people. You can no longer access the fuel pumps with a big rig because the driveway directly in front has been blocked off for a sidewalk. I wouldn't be surprised if this KOA is closed within a year. Someone is going to get hurt here. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Motorhome.

We have stayed here before but things have changed and not for the good. The camp ground gave access to the new Publix store and there is a road into the store. It makes for a lot of traffic. The gas pumps are no longer accessible from the road which makes it hard getting into. To get to the office you must cross the road to the store which has a stop sign but not many people stop for it. It is downright dangerous. We are here during the opening of this store and things are not good. Traffic is awful!! This will no longer be a stop for us it's too dangerous.

I made the reservation just before arriving- no issues. There is a lot of construction going on in the front due to a new grocery store being built. I was a little concerned about that. You have to check in at the gas station out front. That was a bit confusing. The staff was very friendly. I travel alone with my dog, and they had an employee lead me to my site and help me park, which was awesome! The campground was relatively empty. I had a site near the front, and was not bothered by the construction. WiFi and cable all worked well. I noticed no fire rings near any of the sites, which was a little annoying. Other campers were friendly. Some of the seasonal sites needed some TLC, but overall I was satisfied with the stay. The campground offers weekend events for families; however, there is no lake and there isn't much around since that park of Fort Mill is more residential. I enjoyed a little R&R trip, and would go back again. It is a good location for Carowinds, race track, etc. I live in Charlotte and was pleased with the location. I would go here again. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Motorhome.

It is a good place for an overnight stop or a base to do a lot of things in Charlotte but not necessarily a destination campground. Sites were large, as they allowed everyone to use two back to back sites as one large pull-through site with a nice level concrete pad. There are no fire rings so you have to create your own safe place for a fire. We were given a discounted rate because the campground is experiencing construction next door. The construction required their playground to be dismantled. We were not warned of this ahead of time. The jumping pillow was nice and the pool was nice. The game room had only a couple of games in it and none of them functioned properly. The permanent sites were hidden behind a fence and that is because some of them are an eyesore. We walked past them to get to the laundry and game rooms. The RV repair shop on site actually looks more like a large junk yard and is operated out of a mobile home type structure. There is a bar on site that you can hear the DJ from your site and traffic will fill up the entire parking lot at the gas station entry to the campground. The road at the entrance had large elevated manhole covers and was very uneven due to the construction making it an obstacle course to enter the campground. Also the site just two away from ours was allowed to have a large class A, a large enclosed trailer, a flatbed trailer, a Gator or Polaris type golf cart on steroids and 3 pick up trucks all on one site. They would work on their competitive dirt bikes during the day. We pretty much stayed away during the day and were only there at night making the campground functional for our needs but I actually elected to stay away more than originally planned because of the above stated things. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Yet another rundown campground. Definitely not a kid-friendly resort. The previous reviews were spot on except we found the swimming pool to need cleaning. At $40.00 a night this place is way overpriced. The location 3 miles south of Carowinds Park is handy if that's where you're going. It's also not too far from Charlotte. We camped at Charlotte / Fort Mill KOA in a Motorhome.
