Very convenient to I95 and close to Washington, DC. However, this place is typical of "very convenient" in that the Interstate highway is close to the campground and can be heard all night. We were staying only the night, not unhooking from the truck, and so didn't need sewer. Our site was quite difficult to get to in a long rig up a hill on narrow gravel roads, around sharp bends, with lots of trees close by. Sites with sewer (and cable for more $) looked like they would be a lot easier to get to. WiFi is free but I had to move the laptop to a rickety picnic table several sites over. Overall good for a quick stay.

Campground is beautiful and a very nice place to stay. The rest of this review is for the benefit of forewarning. If you want to stay here, you should first call the park office to get driving directions to the campground. The office and the campground are far apart. The road to the campground is narrow (no shoulder) so big-rig drivers be careful. The showers have hot water but don't expect anything more than very modestly luck-warm. I found in the first site we tried that my tester said the electricity had a grounding problem, so we moved to another site. When I thought I'd be helpful and tell maintenance, I was rebuffed with "Well all the sites are wired the same and no one has ever had a problem." Finally, the gate closes at 8:00 PM. We hadn't noticed the signs (our fault) until we pulled in at 8:45. Luckily, a park worker was sitting in his truck on the other side of the gate. I thought he would let us in. Instead, he drove away! We had to leave our truck outside the gate and walk almost a mile to our site. But a beautiful and (during the work week) very quiet campground.

An expensive night of camping, but we stayed in a pull-through site which may have cost more than the back-ins. The campground is extremely convenient to Asheville (Biltmore Estates, Blue Ridge Parkway), which is about the best reason to use it. We couldn't recommend it otherwise. It is right off of Interstate 40 (we could hear the traffic all night), but not conveniently once off the highway as the one-mile road to the campground is narrow with sharp curves. To get to our pull-through site we had to drive out of the campground and back onto the narrow road and reenter the campground further down the road because there is no room to maneuver inside the park. Pull-through sites are narrow and perpendicular to the park road, making parking on the sites quite difficult. The next time we come to Asheville, we will try someplace else.

The park is on the outskirts of Vicksburg. It was very easy to get to all the sites in and around the city. Owners were very helpful with any questions. Campground was very quiet and well kept but lacked shade. Pets were leashed at all times and there was a pet yard provided for them. Sites were all pull throughs but our 40' fifth wheel plus long truck was slightly over the length of the site. Super Walmart within 2 miles.

Very large, clean park. Not as pretty as many 55+ RV resorts in Arizona, but what makes this park standout from the others is the number of activities that go on. Many things to do for everyone, and many new activities to learn. Friendly residents willing to teach their passions to the inexperienced. At least 5 miles to stores, but so much is going on that shopping is not needed for recreation. There is a small grocery store and a nice restaurant on site.

A 55+ RV community. Very clean, pretty much in the middle of Apache Junction, which makes it a very convenient location for stores and Phoenix. Many activities, but mostly for the old folks. Pool is heated.

Very clean with plenty of space. It is a long way from convenient stores, but is in a good location for fishing. About half of the sites are seasonal.

Beautiful tall trees in a quiet campground conveniently close to stores and malls and the city of Syracuse, but that's about it in recommending this place. Enough bugs (mosquitoes, black flies, deer flies) to discourage outdoor activities, narrow dirt/gravel roads with plenty of potholes, weak voltage during hot weather, owners who have other jobs and do maintenance when they get to it, unsafe access to lake area, many old and rundown seasonal trailers, a frequent overflowing dumpster, and at times the owners are unwilling to enforce their own campground rules.
