Dingy campground. Overnighters were all placed in the front of the park, in the open. No trees, no privacy. One of the reasons we stayed was for the "Italian" restaurant within walking distance. The restaurant was terrible. Their pizza oven was broken so there was only some sketchy italian meals available. Stay away from the chicken marsala - it was really bad. A forgettable campground, a regrettable meal. Pass this one by. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Very nice staff. The site was on a slight grade and even with automatic level, my RV could not level without blocks. The site is composed of washed out rock and grass. The plus is that it is just off I-95. The negative is that the place is unkempt and seriously overpriced. Next time, I'll drive right past this place and get a better value for my money. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overnite stay while traveling to New England. This appears to be an old KOA. ATT cell service marginal. Verizon non-existent. Site was reasonably level but you're on top of your neighbor. Roads and sites are gravel. Nice grass fields in the area. Check in was quick and friendly. No guide to the site. Since our stay here, we found a really nice CG just south of the Virginia/NC border in Roanoke Rapids where we will stay in the future. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was the first campground we stayed at when we first started camping. Very easy on and off of I-95 with fairly level lots. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Best place for an overnight we have found in Virginia. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Motorhome.

Acceptable overnight stop a few minutes off I-95. Sites are a little off kilter and made up of grass, gravel and dirt. WiFi is only available at the clubhouse which is open 24/7. There is an Italian restaurant within walking distance. We asked a number of people coming and going and the restaurant received mixed reviews. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Motorhome.

Non-level, dirt pull thru sites. Very quiet location. 30 amp plug which we used looked new and worked well, 50 amp outlet looked worn. Verizon mifi and cell worked well. Would stay again for overnight. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Motorhome.

This is one of those woodsie parks; nice swimming pool, nice people, but no internet at your site, therefore, the "no" for internet. I was close enough to their clubhouse, but still no internet. We had a clear lot so the dish worked for TV though. Lots of ant hills, but it was clean area, no rubbish around anywhere. Full timers were parked behind the office while people staying one night were parked out front, easy on; easy off the campground. Nice walks for dogs and hikes into the woods. I thought for the price with a discount, it was a little too much so I think I'd find a different spot next time. Nice Italian restaurant, home made food, within walking distance. Good pizza. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Motorhome.

Old KOA campground, OK for overnight stop, convenient to I-95, pull-through gravel sites are not quite level. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Motorhome.

We originally registered for one night as we had read some bad reviews of this campground and were not sure if we would extend our stay to visit family. Well we were very happy with the site, the staff, clean restrooms, very quiet. We did extend our stay for a total of six nights. Everything was very good. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It is hard to rate a park in the winter when everything is shut down and the place is devoid of people. The staff was great and our site was just fine. Lots of space to walk dogs. We only stayed one night, so cannot add anything else. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

South Forty explains how far the hookups are from your rig. If you intend to stay here (I wouldn't) be ready for extensions for your hookups. There is an EXTRA charge for EACH hookup you will require. Wi-Fi is ONLY available in the office and not at the camp sites. This is an old, defunct KOA and no improvements have been made except the rating in the Good Sam's directory. I would pass on this one. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Motorhome.

We paid the Good Sam rate. This former KOA park appears tired and very worn, with much deferred maintenance. Just after we signed in, two people (a male and a female) came to the office to report a lack of hot water in the shower rooms. Office person was attempting to find someone to work on the problem. We were charged for cable, but it simply was not working anywhere in our end of the park. After being assigned our site, we were told WiFi probably wouldn't reach that end of the park, but that the lounge was open 24/7 and that it would function there. We apparently did have one of the few level sites in the park. We believe this park is definitely not worth 50 percent of their charged rate, and we will not return. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This was a descent overnight campground in the past, but is really in poor condition now. Office staff were friendly and professional. Pool was maintained and a welcome relief to the 106 degree heat. Campsite was long enough, but terribly unlevel. Wi-Fi was outstanding from our site in the front of the campground. Cable was not available when we were here due to Comcast switching over to digital. Park is WAY OVERPICED for the condition it's in. Should be $20 a night. Bathrooms and showers were spotless. Hopefully someone buys this campground soon and fixes it up as there aren't that many campground choices around. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Mostly open campground conveniently located less than 2 miles off I-95, with seasonal pool & restaurant, propane ($), free cable TV and fast Wi-Fi, clean washrooms, showers, and laundry ($1.5 & 1.25). Sites are a good length, but as this is a private campground, they tend to be narrow with RV’s lined up side-by-side-by-side. Each site has picnic table and fire pit.

This is a forgotten campground in need of upgrading. The sites are sand, many have overgrown, and have not been used for a while. Only 4 campers in the whole park counting me the night I stayed. It used to be a KOA, and apparently was very nice with playground for the kids, swimming pool, and fishing lake. It has seen better days. The lady working there was either new or in a trance. She took over 18 minutes to check me in. There is nothing around the campground i.e. restaurants, shopping etc. You have to go into town to find a restaurant. The traffic on I-95 keeps you awake at night. Truck stop near by; do I have to say more? I will search for another place next time. We camped at South Forty Campground in a Travel Trailer.
