Our 2nd stay at Wilson's, both times were uneventful, and yes we will return. What I Liked: Three miles to downtown Asheville NC, a city alive with peoples, outdoor cafes and street entertainers. A New Orleans feel. The RV Park is located within a Park/Recreational Area. Miles of paved bike/hike paths. Rafting and biking rentals are within walking distance. All sites have level cement pads, water, 30/50 amp, sewage. Half the site are on the French Broad River with a beautiful view. Most sites have shade. Other Observations: The park is located between two busy interstates, i.e. road noise. The park office is closed after 5 pm and on weekends. Could not get the cable TV to work at my site (#9). I left three voice mails and one email and never received a response from the park. You can not reserve a specific site.
The park is well maintained and the employees are friendly and helpful.The park is located 3 miles from downtown Boone. We stayed in site 33 which is on the creek running the park. There are many creek front sites, most with sewage. The restroom and showers are clean, well maintained and heated.
The park is beautiful and well maintained. It is a large park. The majority of the sites are very shady. All sites are gravel, very level, and have full hook-ups. The sites are acceptably large. It’s a dog friendly park, with no dedicated dog walk space but ample dog walking areas. The laundry is clean, two washers and two driers. The negatives are no cable TV, no Wi-Fi, and pay showers (Must have coins). Why don’t they charge a $1 more per night? Visitors must pay a fee. Satellite reception is difficult to receive because of trees.
The park is located on the Thunder Bay River/Lake Winyah. The best lake sites are 6 to 11 (Water and Electric only). There are several seasonal renters. The park appears well managed and it is certainly will maintained. The sites are small, close with reasonable shady. The sites are grass/gravel, and are level. It’s a dog friendly park, with a dog walk area. Included are 73 cable TV channels. The park’s Wi-Fi is reasonably fast. Version cell signal was 2 bar (4G). The restrooms and showers were very clean.

We use 30 amps, but I saw 50 amp rigs in the park. The park and grounds are maintained and clean. The sites are not large but reasonable; the pads are gravel and reasonably level. It’s a dog friendly park, with abundant area to walk your dogs, especially on the river. We connected to DTV from our site (34). Connection looks possible from most sites. Version cell signal was 3 bar (4G). The restrooms and showers are okay. They are reasonably clean, but could be better. One of the two sinks was stopped up. The laundry area is neglected and untidy; the equipment is old and rundown. The park is not exceptional, but not-ordinary either. I would certainly come back.

The restrooms and showers were maintained, heated and clean. The park is located 8 mile from West Glacier Park. Grocery shopping is limited in the local area. Columbia Fall has ample shopping, (20 miles). I recommend this park.
I’m not much on big commercial RV Parks, but sometimes it’s necessary. The park is well maintained and very clean. It provided all amenities such as laundry, pool, etc. The sites are small, gravel and level (typical for large commercial parks). Our awning was within 6 ft of the RV next to us.

Our Version cell signal was 3 bars (4G). The restrooms and showers were modern and clean. No soap provided in the restrooms. This is my second Colorado State Park, both were well above average for state parks, but they do nickel and dime you: Transaction/Reservation Fee $10 - $8/day Park Pass – shower water 50 cents per 3 minutes.
A clean well maintained park. The sites are very large. Sites 1 – 28 have little or no shade. All other sites have shade. The sites are gravel and reasonably level.

A clean well maintained park. The sites are typical of most private RV parks (small). The sites are gravel, level and have small trees. The parks cable TV had many channels. The WI-Fi is fast. Verizon cell signal is strong. The owners were nice helpful people. However, the lady who checked me in went to extremes explaining the park rules. She made me wonder if she knew which one of us was the customer.
A well maintained Corps of Engineer Park overlooking Kaw Lake. Sites are large, paved and have privacy. Most sites are sloped front to back, some seriously. Many sites are on the Arkansas River/Kaw Lake. Restroom and showers are clean and reasonably maintained. No hand soap in the men’s restroom. Cell signal (Verizon) was weak. Not all sites receive cell signal. We received DTV signal on our site (61) but the shady sites make DTV reception a challenge. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. The only negative is the trash bins are not kept closed.
A small well maintained park. Sites are large, level, paved and spaced to give maximum privacy. Sites have picnic table on cement slabs under a fixed shelter. Many sites are on the Arkansas River, but vegetation obstructs the view. Sites 20 and 21 have the best river view. Our site 34 was on the river, and the site faces SW. Restroom and showers are clean and well maintained. No hand soap in the men’s restroom. Cell signal (Verizon) was strong (4G). We had no problem receiving DTV signal. We camped for 4 nights.
The park is well maintained and has a friendly and helpful staff. The park seems new. It only has small trees i.e. no shade. The park is 20 minutes south of downtown Memphis and even closer to Graceland. This is “City Camping” but luxury city camping. The sites are close but arranged to offer privacy as best you can in a city park. Our site (50) was a pull through, and like most of the parks sites, accepts large rigs. It’s across from the dog park. Nice, we have dogs, but heavy people/puppy traffic. The side faces west and gets much late afternoon sunshine. We toured Graceland, a 15 minute drive, and walked around Beale St in Memphis. It has bars, restaurants, and Jazz music. We had lunch in the courtyard of Kings Palace Cafe. A Jazz band played while we ate in the courtyard, and people were dancing. Restrooms and were perfect. Verizon cell signal is okay for voice, but data is slow. The internet provided by RV park is slow but tolerable for most web needs. Forget streaming during busy times. From our site we easily connected to DTV. The park provides basic cable TV. Basic shopping is 1/2 miles. We would return.
Nights Stayed – 3. Park Overall – A well maintained park with great level lots. The sites are close together, but certainly larger sites than you find in most commercial parks. Several of the sites are on the Raven Fork River, a fast and noisy stream, which I loved. We stayed in Feb so the park and the entire town was pretty empty. RV -Type Used - 5th Wheel, 28 Ft, one slide. My Site (234) - This is a beautiful (Premium) site directly on the Raven Fork River. The site is a level cement pad 15 ft. from the river’s edge.

Nights Stayed – 3 Park Overall – If, RVing ON THE BEACH, is your bag then this is the place. The front row faces the beach. Motorhomes only allowed on the 1st row. Our site on the second row was a 1/2 minute walk to the beach. This park has the smallest and most difficult backing into sites I’ve experienced. I’ve reported small sites before but these sites are ridiculously small. Backing skills are a must to stay here, motorhome or trailer. The park is overpriced but beach front RV sites are few. In addition to $98/night for a small sand lot, they also have a 10% “Utility Charge” + a $3/dog/night. Certain breeds of dogs are not allowed. You must present your dog’s vacation record before check-in. The restroom and showers are kept locked, for a $5 deposit you get a key. RV Type Used - 5th Wheel 28 Ft, one slide. My Site (34) – The site is small and narrow. I’ve used that term many times in my reviews but I mean extremely small and narrow. My slide extends past my neighbor’s RV. I had to park our truck on on our patio. What We Did – Eat, drank and relax, the beach, 100 feet from the second row and the front row is smack on the beach is hard to beat. Sunsets don’t get better.

Stayed three nights. Overall this park was a secluded paradise in the middle of the urban areas of Ormond Beach and North Daytona Beach, Florida. All sites are secluded from other sites by heavy vegetation and +/- 90% of them are covered with a dense canopy. The park has well maintained sand roads and sites. The handicap sites are the best I have seen in a state park, first class. This beach park rates high on my list. My 30 amp site was long and narrow (fit a 28-foot rig with one slide) with two trees, you have back you rig through. Must be good at backing or want a challenge. The site is secluded with a level site. Bath house is nearby. Very secluded. Overall, the restroom was better than average. Very clean, with hand soap and towels provided. The handicap facilities were 1st class. Bath was clean, no heat (Nov). Verizon cell service worked: 3+ bars, 3G at least Internet access. No satellite TV. I have DTV. Heavy overhead canopy, at our sites. I was able to get reception by putting the receiver on the site next to ours. The park store has the basics for shopping and groceries. Firewood at the park store is $6 for an average size bundle. The nearest large grocery is 3 miles. Beach 7 to 8 miles. Many great restaurants within 10 miles. Tomoka River Grill has great food and a great view of the Tomoka River. Would I return? Yes, any site would be great, I have not seen a bad one.

Would I Return – Yes, but I would try to stay in following beach sites: - Sites on the beach – 45 to 48 - Sites with beach views – 62 to 88, 3 to 11 and 12, 49, 43, 40, 39
Nights Stayed -3 Park Overall – The Park is large, it is well maintained. All employees go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. A negative thing about the park is it is very near US19, a busy highway. A few of the creek lots, on the Highway side of the park, face the back of some houses. There are a few gravel sites but they are mainly grass. Most of the sites are reasonably level. There are two creeks and a lake all with water front sites. A really nice park overall. RV Type Used - 5th Wheel 28Ft My Site (94) – is on the creek near the highway. The water was so loud that we heard little road noise. The site faces the back of a house on the other side of the creek. We never saw anyone.

Bath - Modern and clean Cell Service - Verizon worked, 3 bars and 3G at least Internet Access – Wi-Fi at the site, reasonably fast access Basic Shopping - Groceries etc. 3 miles Dining - Best restaurant in town is the “BRIO Tuscan Grille”, at the Casino.

The weather and the countryside are beautiful. If I returned I would select site 97 or 98.
Nights Stayed -2 Park Overall - The Park is a typical KOA Camp Ground. Everything was nice, plenty to do for Kids, clean and well maintained. The sites are very small, most without shade. It’s close to Asheville’s nice restaurant. RV Type Used - 5th Wheel 28Ft My Site (#2) - is very small, with zero trees, and a view of nothing much.

Stayed 4 nights over Labor day weekend. This park is located in a beautiful setting; will maintained, great staff and many LARGE sites. On the negative side many of the sites on the outer perimeter in ‘Section A’ are seriously un-level. Sites are sand / clay. Site 86 A, is a large, tight, pull through. The site was private. However, it was externally un-level. I had to lift the passenger’s side tires six inches to level. We hiked the Farm Trail from the RV Campground to the Live Farm. Was interesting: look it up. 3 miles total, easy hike. Restroom was aging but clean, no soap in the restrooms but a blow hand drier. Bath was clean, big, however could use some hooks for cloth. Cell service was Verizon, low signal strength and goes between 3G and 1X. Very slow for data. Internet access through Verizon Hotspot. No other available. Basic shopping, groceries, etc. was 5 to 8 miles away. Restaurants in nearby cities but most dining is in Gastonia NC, 12/15 miles. Would I return? Yes: a very nice park but I would try to stay in sites 42, 44, 46, 48. Good sites and level.
The park has numerous water front sites. Supplies such as ice, food etc are about a 15/20 minutes drive. Clean toilets/showers. We wanted to stay longer but the park was full. The one negative I found is the park does not provide soap in toilets.
We stayed in Lake Shore part of the park. Our site #100 was approximately 100 ft from the lakes shoreline. There is a wonderful view of the lake from this site, but there are many more sites with lake views. I found the park a bit ran down. The Camp host RV and site is a mess. Sites have eroded and are mainly sand and clay. I would stay there again
The Park is made up with mainly long term renters. Many people leave their camper here full time. All the long term campers were very nice to us short timers. The sites are tight but nothing too bad. We stayed on the river, site 45. All of the river site are beautiful.The finality is will maintained. We would come back again. Lot to do and see, Highlands NC especially.
The parks is only a 9 if you enjoy remoteness, which I do. Fishing, nature and miles from any where. We ate a St John's Restaurant in St Martainsville it was wonderful. The park is great and we will return. No Verizon reception. The parks Wi-Fi is fast.
This is a well run/managed park. It is convenient to I-40, but we had no problem with road noise. The baths and showers were exceptionally clean. The sites are close together. The park's Wi-fi was very slow. However, the park is adding a new Wi-fi, but we were too far away to receive it. Old Town is about a 10 minute drive. Received a good Verizon cell signal. The park's CTV has 48 channels. We would stay here again.
Beautiful desert setting with the Catalina Mountains in the near background. This is our 14th park this trip and it is the best by far. The only 10/10 rating so far. The setting is desert but you are near shopping and great restaurants. The park must be new. The bath/showers were in excellent condition and very modern. The sites are extremely large and offset. Good DTV and Version signals.
Silver City is a nice small town with lots to do. This RV park is as downtown as you will get, but quiet. The park has clean and heated showers and restrooms. There is a laundromat that only charges $1.00/load. Many great restaurants. Received Version and DIV.
Our 11th RV site on this trip. My overall rating of 6/10 is the lowest rating on this trip. Very remote with not much to do. Wonderful weather sunny mid 60's to mid 40's. We found a great "hole in the wall" Mexican Restaurant (Mi Ranchito), Great Food. Restrooms were reasonably clean but had no hand soap, only water and a blow hand drier. The sites are level and maintained, however they are covered with Sand Spurs". We spent a lot of our time pulling the spurs out of our dog's paws. The parks is will patrolled.
Water/Electric, no sewage . The park was full, schools in LA are out the entire week of Thanksgiving. Clean well maintained facilities. Individual shower/toilet suites. Coin Laundry on site. The park's focus is nature and wetlands.
We stayed in the west campground, site 48, a pull through. We were in a 28 Ft 5th wheel. Park has clean toilets/shower. The showers are heated and they are kept at a warm temperature. The sites are large and easy to enter. Staff and hosts were wonderful. The park is located 35/40 minutes from Chattanooga TN. We had lunch at 2 great restaurants in Chattanooga. (1) Mt Vernon (423) 266-6591 - 3535 Broad Street, Chattanooga, TN 37409 (Upscale). (2) Jenkins Country Style Buffet 4122 Ringgold Road, East Ridge, TN 37412. $9 all you can eat.
The price above does not reflect the senior discount of $5.50/night. We stayed in site 44. The site is difficult to get into but well worth it. Clean toilets/shower. Showers are heated and stay warm. I would rate it an 9 out of 10. A well managed and well kept park.
On a 1 to 10 scale this park is a 9.99. This is the best federal or state park we’ve stay in to date. Large staggered sites, lot shade, mostly cement pads that are completely level, but one should expect this quality from a park build and ran by the Army Core of Engineers. Over 25 lots are on the river/lake. Clean well maintained facilities. Coin Laundry on site. The views are wonderful. We stayed in site #10. The best water sites are 16 to 22 (17/19). Camden AL, located 9 miles from the park, is your only source for purchases. Cell phone signal strength supports cell service about 75% of the time, but Internet over the cell system is basically a no go. We stayed in early October.
The campground is clean but some what ran down. On the positive side the place has the best river front view I ever had in an RV Park. Your rear bumper is hanging over the river bank. There are only 4 to 6 sites have sewage. The full hook-up sites have concrete pads. The pads are narrow. We have a 28th 5th wheel, it fit on the pad comfortable but tight.
Overall the park is great. Staff and Hosts were helpful and friendly. Only negative comment are the restrooms and showers. They were reasonably clean but run down. There was also no hand soap or towels in the restrooms.
