Received a friendly welcome upon entering the office. Check in was quick and easy. Was escorted to a large full hook up pull thru site. Good water pressure and no electrical issues. Cable worked fine, and the internet was typical for a large park, slow, but it worked. Bathrooms and showers were clean, and it was nice to have latches on doors that worked properly. Very pet friendly park with a large fenced in dog park. Would use this park again for a stop over. - truckerturtle

Stay one night on our way to Florida. Very nice and helpful people at check-in. Easy in and out with a fifth wheel camper. Site was level with full hookups. Close to freeway with some noise. Restrooms were very clean. Was winter so did not use all the amenities here. Would stay here again. - gmbmailbox

They have a great dog park right across from the bathroom. The people who run this business are very friendly and helpful. - The-Holley-s

Pretty disappointed. Old Stone Fort state park is a beautiful place, however the campground is in serious need of updating. Maybe it's a budget issue? Price reflected winter/senior discount. Note that during the winter there are no shower facilities. Ten minutes to town and shopping. Be careful on the extremely narrow bridge that leads to the campground. Paved roads. Paved, level sites. Some sites were tight, and could be a challenge for big rigs. No problem for our 23' Class C. No wi-fi. Utility connections very old but worked. Dump station available as you leave the campground. Trash cans available throughout the campground. Restrooms serviceable, but old and in need of update. No shower facilities in winter season. No laundry facility. Good cell coverage via AT & T. Those with a satellite dish might not have coverage due to the trees. Given some attention, maintenance and updating, the Old Stone Fort campground could be an awesome place. - tomnorman457

Stopped here for an overnight and a chance to walk around the historic ruins. The campground is a series of tight loops in a heavily wooded area. I don't know how those folks with the fifth wheels and big Class A's managed to stuff themselves In a spot - we had a heck of time parking our little 27' MH into a site. Had to jockey around several sites before we could find one to fit into. It didn't help that other campers park their vehicles in the loop road, as the sites are too small to fit both a trailer and a truck. After managing to get ourselves situated, we checked into the Visitor Center to register. There we encountered the World's Crankiest Ranger. She refused to offer any information about the park, we had to beg for trail maps, and registering was an unpleasant ordeal. Let's hope it will be her day off when you visit.
The park's museum is tiny and bare bones. Most of the historic information can be gleaned from the excellent signage on the loop trail, which points out the significance of the sites. There is a splendid, easy trail that runs alongside the two rivers which surround the hilltop mounds. You can see lovely rapids and waterfalls along the way. Not sure I would visit again though, solely due to the tight campground roads. - Flying Mantis

This is a rustic park, but many trees and shade. The bathrooms were older, pretty clean but not maintained while we were there. Also to note, the bathrooms in our camping area were only toilets and sinks, the showers were down the road, not quite as clean and also had bathrooms with them. Unfortunately, we had tent campers behind us that stayed up until 2 AM and talked very loud, so it was difficult sleeping. It was pretty close to the interstate and to enter the campground one had to cross over a one lane bridge. Would have liked to know that in advance! - SGF

Stayed here and lots of permanent campers here. Some well kept others not so much. Your kids can play in the playground but if you have visitors come up they will charge you for each additional kid to play on the playground. Even if the visitors don't stay over night. Lots of exposed wiring hanging around and needs a code inspector to pay a visit. - johngi01

This is definitely a campground, I needed a place to park my RV for several months while working in the area, I can say it is very quiet and the neighbors are friendly and helpful.
The owners are friendly but not very knowledgeable about running a campground. The grounds are kept neat with the exception of 4" of leaves covering the roads. If you need anything you have to drive a minimum of 1 1/2 miles to get to it. The following is what they don't have and may need to provide in order to be a productive and helpful campground: NO drink machine, snack machine, emergency parts for water/sewer for camper, pre-cut firewood, laundry facilities, light fixtures in campground area, play area for children or adults during inclement weather, safe shelter, knowledge of the area places to see/visit, amenities for RV's such as LP filling stations, propane exchange centers, WiFi or satellite. What do they have? Water/sewer/electric hookups, outdoor pool from 9am-5pm, small play ground, large open field well kept, 2 bathhouses well kept, 1 dumpster, and WAY TOO MANY TREES.
I enjoy the quiet, peaceful and friendly people who stay here and I will be staying for several months, I just want to share what you may want to bring before you get here. Happy Camping and we hope to see you soon. - Kelly Wyatt

Nice stop over campground, not too far from I-24. While entry and site roads are narrow this campground can accommodate today's larger rigs if you plan your turns. Owner is very friendly and helpful. Got us checked in quickly in the hot sun. Sites are heavily wooded so you are in the shade all of the day, but this does cause issues with satellite. Needed 80' of coax to get my dish out from the trees. If you have a roof mounted dish forget it. Over the air signals were poor. Being an older campground they do not have 50 amp service nor higher water pressure. I recorded only 20 psi. There are a number of permanent residents which is becoming more common, but these tend to let their dogs roam free resulting in special gifts left in your site for you to discover. Bathrooms and showers were clean and well maintained. I expected more spiders and insects living in them being in the woods, but that was not the case. Would we return? Yes. Even would consider staying for a few days to see more of the area. - Big Country JR

This is definitely a campground, not an RV park! You get that feeling with all the trees in this park. However, spacing between sites is not the greatest, as your site's picnic table may or may not be on top of your neighbors sewer. You can move the table to a different spot on your site. On the plus side, the sites are quite LONG! Could squeeze two big rig Class A RV's and two cars in each site (although I'm sure that's not really allowed...) Most of the sites appear to be pull through. There is adequate room for slides, but that's not saying much. One of my slides was so close to a tree that my cat was greatly entertained watching the few creatures that hadn't hibernated yet. There is a children's playground in the center of the park. I'm not sure how check in works in the summer, but at the time I was there, it was "self check in" at a barn at the entrance. There were some "special" envelopes for check in, but the few envelopes available had been scribbled on. So, I used a plain envelope that I had in my RV, enclosed a check, and dropped it in the slot. Good TV reception for digital channels over the air. This place can be a great family camp out, or just a good, cheap, overnight place. - DXSMac
