Spent a long weekend here. Easy access to I-40. Nice creekside sites, though some are a bit narrow. Weekend activities include live Bluegrass music and breakfast. There are pull-through sites, though most are back-ins. Cabins available. No pool. Free Wi-Fi. A bunch of cable stations. Close enough to Maggie Valley without all the traffic and noise. Individual bath rooms with shower. Clean park, well taken care of. Fenced in dog run and a couple of dog walks along the edge of the property.

Pros: E-Z access to Interstate Nice personnel On site snackbar that delivers to your site Strong wi-fi signal (at our site) Cheap for 50A Full Hook Up Site. Flea Market across the street. Good base for local fly fishing. NHRA Nationals were on. You could feel some of the cars; only 4 seconds at a time. Cons: Gravel sites are dusty Narrow sites. Our picnic table was located behind the trailer in the next site. My awning was 3' away from their trailer. NO SHADE. Make sure you face North in your site. Water pressure would not go over 40 psi. NHRA Nationals were on.You could feel some of the cars; only 4 seconds at a time. Neighbors power kept cutting off. Overall, not a real impressive park, at least after reading how wonderful it was.

This is a great RV park. There are plenty of sites, many shaded. Two pools and screened gazebos. Staff is friendly. Sites are level. Good water pressure. We stayed at site 5, just behind one of the pools. The pool was noisy as it was a holiday weekend and the park was full. The pool had recently been redone; unfortunately, they painted the pool deck and it was very slippery. Besides my grand daughter, I witnessed a few people slipping and falling. Sites 34 - 48 are nice shaded pull through. They had a pig picking Saturday celebrating the opening of some new cabins.

If you're planning on visiting this CG before June 2014, you'll have a 10 mile detour that you must follow. When making our reservations, they failed to mention this. Luckily, we followed the signs and made it there. After arriving and setting up, maybe we weren't so lucky after all. We had two adjacent sites. One was muddy to the point of the leveling jacks sinking into the ground. It was also 4 feet away from the trailer next to them. I asked the lady in the office why we were placed in such poor sites when there were dozens of nicer sites. She said the sites we were on were usually fine. Usually? If making reservations, try asking which site you will be on and see what they say. I moved to a site for better satellite reception because they don't have cable and March Madness was on. It was very un-level. The sites are narrow and our neighbor's sewer drain was 6 feet away from our trailer. Luckily, that site remained unoccupied. Wi-Fi is so weak that I had to use my cell phone as a hot spot. I spoke with other campers who also mentioned that nothing was said to them about the detour. This could be a nice CG if they leveled the sites, spaced them out more, and taught their employees something about customer service. We won't bother staying here again.

Nothing special about this campground. Our site was level, water pressure good, and cable TV reception OK. The sites were spacious. Typical Florida sandy soil which results in tracking it inside. You do hear road noise from I-95. It is close to the outlet mall, shopping, and a Camping World. It would be a good place to stay when visiting the oldest city. The people in the office were nice. The guy that filled my propane tank was grouchy and rude. Seems like it was an inconvenience for him to fill my tank.

We stayed here on our way to and from Florida for Thanksgiving. It's best for an overnight stay. Being next to I-95, you will hear traffic and lots of it. The place is shaded, sites are large and level, and hook ups vary. Seems everything is a la carte. Want sewer? It's extra. Want 50A service instead of 30A service? It's extra. Want cable TV? It's $2 extra, but don't waste your money. There was a coax cable running on top of the ground with each site tapped into it. Vehicles had been driving over the cable which resulted in terrible cable quality. Point your antenna East and you'll pick up Charleston TV stations for free. I mentioned this to the lady at the front desk, she said the cable in the office worked fine so there must be something wrong with my rig. Yeah, right. The place has been around awhile. While running around our campsite, our dog stepped on a deteriorated cover and fell in a hole in the ground! As already mentioned, it's OK as an overnight stop. They have a little shed for late arrivals. I do hope they replace the American flag they have flying as it's pretty worn out.

The previous post hit it on the head. For what this campground is, it's rates a 9. If it wasn't for the wine vineyard, the wine tastings, and activities, the rating would be a bit lower. The sites are closer than we prefer, but acceptable. Water pressure was great, the park was clean, the sites seemed level, and the owners were really nice. The pool is new and the bath house is clean. Ice and drinks available outside the bath house and they utilize the honor system when paying for these. There is a neat little catch and release pond. The highlight of our long weekend was the wine tasting at the campground office/wine bar/B&B. Their wine is very impressive. Be sure to ask for a wine float. There was also a painting class on Saturday taught by one of the owners. Very cool. Some sites are more shaded than others, but all had easy access. The campground is out in the middle of no where, but there is an old super market a couple miles down the road with great steaks. We'll be back for a weekend get away.

This CG is no longer a KOA. I guess it costs a lot and the owner here has two other CG's and is looking for more. This is a very nice campground with two pools, lots of shade, large level sites, good water pressure, Wi-Fi and cable. I have to say, though, that the flying bugs this time of year were terrible. It rained much of our stay, but even then, them buggers were everywhere. I sprayed the site with yardguard bug spray, but late at nite, watch out! The park personnel were nice. They let me borrow a TV cable as I forgot mine. We'll be back.

This is our 4th trip to this campground. Each time gets better. We had a back in site, on the creek with 30A service. There are young trees along the road which can make backing a challenge, but with a little maneuvering we made it in. The site was level. Good water pressure, fresh well water. The campground has WiFi at the sites closer to the front and at the camp store. The camp store really is a snack bar with home made sandwiches including a trout sandwich. The owners are awesome people. This campground is isolated with no cell service, cable or antenna TV. There are no planned activities for the kids. There is a swimming hole next to the clubhouse. They offer canoe trips and tubing. This is not a luxury campground, but a basic, clean, friendly, quiet, and private campground.

We had a double site on the lake. It was level and easy to access. Water pressure was good. The bathrooms were clean, but the paint in the shower stalls was peeling. I will say that the campground recently opened up for the season, so I am sure the showers will get a fresh coat of paint. The only down side of this park is no sewer at the site. It's a beautiful park. Be aware that the gates close at 8:00 pm so access in and out is not possible, unless it's an emergency.

Many sites are difficult to access with a big rig or trailer. Having a 36 1/2' fiver limited our site selection. As mentioned in other reviews, the gate locked between 6-8 which we worked around. Site was level, good water pressure, picked up 15 local TV stations. It was quiet and very empty. They must have turned off the flight path as there were no planes taking off or approaching overhead. Wish there was sewer hook up.

This is our second visit here. It was just as nice as our first. The CG is in a beautiful setting. Our site was on the lower tier and fairly level. Water pressure was good. Park was clean and well maintained. People running the CG were nice. Ice cream social on Friday night. Close to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Mt. Airy (Mayberry) Small catch & release pond, clean pool and nice game room. Easy access to I-77, but far enough away where the noise is minimal. Lots of shade. Overall a great campground. Good Wi-Fi reception. Poor AT&T reception.

We have visited this campground a number of times. We like the large sites which are level. Water pressure was good, but cable reception was terrible. The connector at the post was so worn, I was unable to tighten my coax cable. The new pool is really nice, as is the new bath house. The store is nice with some local crafts. There are some long term trailers, but they are in the back of the campground. We will come back, but I hope they fix the cable connectors.

This campground has undergone a major transformation. The owner has made available about a half a dozen new RV sites that back up to Wilson Creek. Full hookups with 50A service. There is no cable or antenna TV, no pool, no playground, and no cell phone service. HOWEVER, the bath house has been recently updated and there is a huge swimming hole behind the rustic clubhouse and additional water sports upstream including tubing and rafting. They also rent out 6 lovely eclectic cottages, some with outdoor hot tubs. Neat. The most important thing, though, is the awesome trout fishing. Literally 20' from your site. Next would be the beautiful scenery, breath taking. This has become our favorite campground. Peaceful, rustic, and the owners are the nicest people you'd ever want to meet. The park is a work in progress, but it is a great place to get away from the hustle & bustle, do some trout fishing, and enjoy God's country.

This is what an RV park should be. Sites are level and large with enough privacy from the other sites. Access in and out is good. The dog park is ideal for Fido to run free & safely. Park staff is friendly. Location is close enough to Downtown to be convenient. Our water pressure was a little low, but Wi-Fi worked well. We will be back, hopefully for a little longer.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. Large sites, good water pressure, free Wi-Fi, great facilities. Large lake with a bike/walking path. Good fishing, catch & release. Hot tubs on some sites. (REALLY nice). Individual rooms with showers. Park is very well taken care of. Nice pool and camp store. A number of golf courses near-by. Shaded sites are available. We will definitely return.

We spent one night here after picking up our new fiver. The park was pretty empty and it stormed during our stay. Site was level and good size with some privacy from the other sites. Easy to get around the park. Water pressure was good. Cable TV and antenna worked fine. Nice wooded park. Staff in the office was friendly. A little difficult to find due to recent road construction around the Interstate. Had a number of great sites for over night stays with easy access, close to the front of the park. We'll be back when the weather warms up.

This is a rundown KOA. Check in was good, friendly staff. The 30A receptacle wasn't properly grounded, as I always check before plugging in. The maintenance guy had the site across from us and replaced it immediately. Nice guy. The site and park was muddy from the recent rain. There were numerous poorly maintained full time trailers, once again, more like a trailer park than a campground. Water pressure was OK. No cable TV. Picked up some Charlotte stations. No shade, and located close to the Interstate so there was a lot of noise. This really doesn't bother us, though, as we run the AC to drown out the noise. Nice new dog park, a little bit of a walk from the main park. Very disappointing as a KOA. We'll find another campground if we are in the area again.

If I was to rate this park on the owner and the people in the office, I would give it a 10. If I was to rate the park on the park itself, I would rate it a 3. The owner and staff were very helpful, cordial, accommodating, and friendly. We were in the area attending a funeral. They allowed us to have family members at the unoccupied site across the way after the service. The owner walked around the park the next day and greeted guests and invited us to their newly renovated rec hall. However, the park itself is in dire need of updating and maintenance. It's an old KOA and has small sites and sharp turns, very difficult for large rigs. (Ours is 36 foot.) The streets are narrow. There were 4' diameter drains on each side of our site. Grass and weeds needed cutting. The park is scattered with full time trailers, most poorly maintained. The bath house is in need of renovating, cleaning it wouldn't help. Marginal as an overnight stop, find another park if you have a big rig or plan on making it a base camp as you tour Atlanta.

When driving on the entrance road, we were impressed with the scenery. Spanish moss hanging from trees in a large area next to a lake. Then we made the turn into the trailer park, I mean campground. Seems there's a lot of construction going on around the area. There were many long term/permanent trailers scattered throughout the park. Ones with attached porches, steel sheds, temporary garages, etc. The people in the office were very nice. There's a nice store. Our site was level, good water pressure, and good Wi-Fi. The lower cable channels had lots of static. We didn't use the heated swimming pool, but there is a nice long nature trail, great for walking the dog. It's about 10 miles to downtown Charleston, but the road construction & traffic makes it feel farther. Because of the trailer park feel and the road construction, we'll probably stay at a different campground on our next visit.

This is our first stay at Poplar Point. We usually stay at Crosswinds across the highway. Sites here are a little smaller, but level. There are no double sites either. The scenery is great, the water pressure OK, and access to the lake was limited from our site. TV reception from Raleigh was very good with our antenna. A very nice campground, but I still wish they had sewer.

This is a very nice campground. Though the site we were given was not level and small for our trailer, the other sites looked OK. Water pressure was good, wi-fi signal was good. The park layout is interesting with a number of nice back in sites.

This is an outstanding park. If they had Wi-Fi, I would have given it a 10. Our sites were level and large. A few sites had shade, but being new, the current trees have a ways to go. The only complaint I have is the large number of vehicles driving up & down the road at too high of a speed. Lots of things for the kids & adults to do. Bath house was very clean. People in the office were nice. A great base for visiting Niagara Falls. A number of good places to eat without leaving the island.

This is a great family campground. Close to the sites of Lake George. It is a very expensive park as you are paying for the many amenities. If you want Wi-Fi, you'll have to pay $8 a day. Some sites are a challenge to get in and out of and many are not level. There is ample shade, the camp store is one of the best equipped I've seen. They offer a shuttle into town & outlet mall. Being the middle of Summer, there were numerous kids running around the park. If you bring a bike, you'll encounter a lot of hills.

This is a great little RV park. Park is clean and well kept. The owners are friendly and helpful. The sites are level, the water pressure is good. Some sites might be a little tight for big rigs, but the owner will guide you into your site. Nice pool and game room. Near to local attractions. Plenty of sea food restaurants. About a mile from the beach. Train station is close enough for a day trip to Boston. The only reason I couldn't give this park a 10 was of the dog park. It consisted of a 20X40 gravel lot, scattered with weeds and dog waste that was not picked up. It is surrounded by a make shift fence. Nasty. There is very little other space to walk your dog. Excellent ice cream shop within walking distance outside the park. There is also a secured gate at night to limit access. Nice.

We hung out here for 3 days. Beautiful old park. Nice size sites that were level. Plenty of water pressure. Room for big rigs. Nice pool, lake (pond) and stream. Large recreational area for the dog to run, though it is not fenced. People were nice in the office. Secured gate entrance at night. Quiet place, no road noise. Good restaurants near by.

BIG PARK! The place to base camp for touring D.C. Our sites were level. Good water pressure. The sites were large enough not to intrude on the next site. People in the office were friendly, as were the park personnel. It is a very pretty park with lots of amenities. Great snack bar with very good food. Try the home made crab cakes. A couple of pools, game room, TV room, jacuzzi, etc. This is a great resort. We'll be back in the Autumn.

This is our 3rd visit here. We were on site 30 which has it's pros and cons. It's an easy site to pull through and it's close to the bath house. All the traffic going to and from the bath house walks by this site, which is right on the road. They had live country music Friday night, really cool. Some sites are close, but acceptable. It is very clean. Very few kids were here. The sites along the stream are beautiful, though might be tight to back into. Coffee and pastries are served in the morning it the club house. Sites were level, for the most part. Water pressure good. Cable TV was nice to have. The Wi-Fi dropped us a few times. People were friendly. Bingo on Saturday night. Great place to base camp for touring the area, Maggie Valley, etc. Definitely a CG to return to.

We first stayed here back in 2008. It has changed quite a bit since then. The price might seem high, but we had a premium site with a fenced patio. Other regular sites were substantially less. The park is clean & with well manicured landscaping. The place is beautiful. There are two pools, each with a screened in patio area with ceiling fans. The new area has individual bathrooms with showers. The sites are spacious and most are pull through. There are some long term residents thanks to the construction going on in Fayetteville, but these trailers are in their own section. There are many shaded sites. Water pressure is good. If you visit during the summer, bring your bug spray as they can be plentiful. I sprayed my surrounding area with Raid Yard Guard and took care of the pests, The store is fairly well equipped and the people working there were nice. This is definitely a great place to stay over when traveling I-95.

As the other reviews have already stated, this is a very well kept campground. Except, I wouldn't call it a campground. It is a trailer park with some sites for RV'ers. Stream access is nice. The residents were nice, though.

This is, or could be a beautiful campground. I would have given it a 10 if there weren't so many permanent residents. It almost looks like a trailer park, a very nice trailer park, but still a trailer park. Many sites are next to the stream, but most are occupied by "seasonal residents" (as the office calls them). There are two swimming holes, nice; a large area for RC planes, cool; and a driving range, if you're into golf.

This is an extremely nice CG. Sites are level and water pressure is good. Large sites, nice walking/bicycling paths around a lake. Hot tubs available at premium sites. Might be a little hot in the Summer as shade is limited. Park was clean. All but one employee was nice, guess she was having a bad day. Though they do have Wi-Fi, reception was often spotty and slow. No cable TV, either, if that's important to you. Shame such a nice CG is lacking cable. Was able to pick up a dozen local channels. Lots of activities going on in the clubhouse. We've been here before and will return again.

The weekend we stayed, it snowed and dropped to 29 degrees. The office was closed when we arrived, but the manager was still there waiting for us. Very friendly. The site we got was fairly level and was wide enough without encroaching on our neighbors. Water pressure was good, they were equipped for cold weather. It was too cold to enjoy the amenities offered by the campground. i.e. fishing pond, game room, and store. The place was clean and well maintained. This is a great campground to visit the area attractions such as the NC Zoo and pottery studios in nearby Seagrove. We will be returning in the Spring.

We stayed here for an over night off I-77. Arrived after hours; easy check in, though. The first site we picked was too narrow for my rig and was right on top of the one next to it. There were a number of pull throughs that are very narrow. Just pick the right one for you. Big rig friendly? Only if you get the right site. The bathroom & shower was very clean. Good water pressure. Our site wasn't real level, but I saw a number of them the next morning that weren't as bad. Pretty park, lots to do for the kids. Very little road noise; couldn't hear any inside. Employees were friendly. This is a great over night stop.

We stopped here unannounced on our way to Goshen. Drove down a long narrow drive to pull in, but was stopped by a gate. No body responded to the call box, but was able to reach the manager via phone as she was away for a while. We did get in and got a pull through site. This is a seasonal CG. MANY permanent trailers here because of the lake. Big play ground for the kids. OK for an overnight but I wouldn't want to stay longer. Bath house was old but clean. Great pizza place in Churubusco.

The weather was beautiful and it was a great stay. Our site was level, water pressure good, even picked up 15 Raleigh TV stations with the antenna. Stayed in Section C, but Section B also looked nice. Couldn't get a site next to the lake, but it was a short walk down the road. Besides a frequent barking large dog somewhere, the campground was very good, one of our favorites. Don't mind the gates closing at 8:00 pm. The camp host was available in case of emergency. Campground is clean and most sites were easily accessible. The bath house is NOT heated so it can get a little cold in there for taking a shower. Tried fishing but succeeded in doing nothing but drowning worms. Water level was way up thanks to the 8+ inches of rain last week. Definitely will stay here again.

This is an average KOA park. I used it for a base camp to work in the Charlotte area for the week. The Wi-Fi is terrible, the strongest signal was 5 Mbps. The office told me that the signal was stronger in their lounge. Oh, there is a lounge/bar built next to the office. Cheap wings & beer. Convenient to Charlotte attractions. Looks like Halloween is a special holiday here. Park was clean, water pressure good, site fairly level and gravel. There are some concrete pad sites with a patio available. CG is located on the approach path for the airport so you will hear planes coming into land. Road noise could be heard outside, but inside was OK with the AC on. I will not be staying here again because of the terrible Wi-Fi, which I need for my job.

This is not the ideal CG for me. HOWEVER with that said, if I had kids, and wanted to be on the beach, and wanted a bunch of stuff to do for my kids, and didn't mind a crowded CG with constant traffic going up and down the narrow roads, and didn't mind paying extra because everything is priced "a la carte", and had lots of money in my budget; I would have rated this CG a 9. As already mentioned, 50A service=$5; dog=$5; Interent=$10 day; visitors= $5 each over 1 hour; use of bath house=$3, cable TV= $2 (poor reception), etc. There was constant traffic of golf carts, bikes, 4 wheelers, Model T's, and pedestrians up & down the road. Many sites are narrow, there are some that are shaded. Many permanent residents (typical for the beach). Vehicles parked everywhere. Good water pressure. Site was fairly level. Many activities going on, especially for kids. Kids driving a golf cart (which is against the CG's rules) almost smashed into my truck. Near Cherry Point air base so we got to watch & feel Harriers taking off. (VERY COOL) We would only return out of season.

We stayed here over the 4th. Very nice CG. Our two sites were level and easy to get into. The staff was friendly. Lots of shade. It was clean and taken maintained. Playground for the kids and on-site mining available. Small pond for catch & release. Nice clean pool, great in the summer heat. Camp store had neat stuff. Water pressure was good. CG layout is neat with multi-level sites. Good base for touring the local area. e.g., Mt. Airy. We will definitely stay here again.

This city owned campground is a result of Hurricane Floyd in 1999. It flooded a section next to the Contentnea Creek and the homes could not be rebuilt. The city decided to turn the area into an RV park with walking trails and a play ground. Sounds like a good idea, right? Unfortunately, they need a little more attention to get it right. There are no bath houses, just air conditioned toilets. They were a mess and not clean, being open to the public. The campground is isolated from the rest of the town and it is very peaceful and tranquil. We listened to the birds while sitting outside. No traffic noise. There were four other RV's on site, long term with construction workers. Luckily, it was a holiday weekend and they all went home. We were the only occupied RV in the campground. Lot's of open space to run the dog. No garbage cans, though. We had to use the cans belonging to the long term guys. The site was level and open. Plenty of shade from large trees, but yet open spots to set up a satellite dish. We were able to pick up two local TV stations on our antenna. Good water pressure. No pool, no 50 Amp service, no cable, no wi-fi. This is a very basic campground that is quiet, on a river, and very cheap. We had to go to the police station to check in. A policeman escorted us to our site, a lot better than following a golf cart with a campworker driving.

The campground itself is very nice, providing you get one of the premium sites. Some other sites were close together. The last two visits I was unable to get adjoining sites as requested. Upon arrival for the weekend, the campground was never over half full. The desk help couldn't tell me why I couldn't get adjoining sites and didn't seem too concerned. Their reservation system is terrible. Stay with the premium sites because of their size and distance to the next site. Look at their site map and choose a good site, don't trust them to do it for you. There are railroad tracks across the street and I was woke up at 5:30 by its horn. Unusual.

This KOA has some nice sites available, but some small ones, too. Make sure you know what site you reserve or you might be sorry. The sites were level, water pressure a little low, but sufficient. Sites with concrete patio pads are available. There is a pier on the river front for fishing. You can rent paddle boats there. People at the campground were friendly. We will stay here again, but we will make sure we get one of the better sites.

This is a very nice park. We were escorted to our site. The site was level and easy to back into. There were some that might be a bit of a challenge to back into because vehicles must park along the road in front of their sites. The bathrooms were very clean. The park personnel were friendly and helpful. They had coffee and donuts Saturday morning, bingo Friday night. There are many campgrounds in the area, but this is one of the better ones. We will stay here again when we are in the area.

This was our second time here. This time we were in section "B". This section seemed a little noisier than section "C", i.e. road noise. The double site we had was huge and level. It was easy to back into. The bathrooms were clean, but sparse with no heat and the shower temperature is preset. We were able to pick up 8 local TV stations using our antenna, which was good enough to watch some football games. This CG is great for bike riding, hiking, fishing, and swimming (when warmer). The park is beautiful with trees, we could hardly see the next camp site. Gate closes at 8:00 pm. No sewer at the sites. This CG is closing in a couple weeks for Winter. Looking forward to Spring so we can make another trip!

This is nothing but a nice, glorified trailer park. The full timers have the best sites by the river and nearest the river. Our site, as well as most transient sites, were very narrow. Our awning was even with the next site's sewer pipe: yuck! The people were friendly and there is a nice big pool. No shade what so ever, so don't visit here when it's hot! There is weekend activities for the kids and grownups: miniature golf and a playground. They have gravel roads. The park was clean and our site was fairly level. The shower and bathrooms were very clean. No cable TV, but we picked up 12 digital, local stations including 5 PBS channels. The price for the internet was ridiculous. There were a number of transient sites: all with no shade and many too narrow, unless you like smelling your neighbor's sewer. Don't think we'll be coming here again.

Spent a long weekend here. It is a nice park for families with lots of activities for the kids. There were LOTS of seasonal campers, many with boats or trailers on their site, many of them trashy looking. Sites were close together. No cable TV. Wireless was available if you pay for it. Was able to pick up two TV stations, one being the local weather channel. People in the office were friendly. The CG had a pot luck dinner and an evening movie. Lots of kids running around, many on golf carts. There were a couple of ponds for fishing. Club house has a nice game room with video games, pool tables and air hockey. I rated it lower because of over all condition. Though it was clean, faucets leaked on sites, some sites were difficult to get into with longer trailers, my antenna also got caught on tree limbs. It rained and there was a lot of flooding. We will return out of season when it will be a bit less active, I hope.

I pulled in to check the CG out and couldn't find a parking space,there were cars parked all over the place. Come to find out the two pools are open to the public and half the town was there. The CG has MANY full time trailers, almost like a trailer park. The lady inside was busy with another person, but allowed me to drive through. I couldn't find any level sites of the few that were left. The park was trashy looking with all the full timers. I decided not to stay.

This was our final stop on our way home. We stayed for 2 nights. The park personnel were friendly. Escorted to our site and was guided when parking the rig. The roads and sites were gravel, but fairly level. We had a pull through and parked the truck parallel to the road. There are back in sites along the stream; very nice, but kind of close. Even though it was a Holiday weekend, there were empty sites, which made our site seem bigger. A few permanent or seasonal campers were way in the back of the park. They had pancakes & pastries on the morning. Saturday night there was a live band, I guess due to the Holiday. Water pressure was adequate. Campground is very clean. Long dog walk on the edge of the property. Beautiful area. Great place to set up base to tour the area. Heard no road noise when inside, outside an occasional noise from US-276. Even with a dozen campgrounds in the area, we would come back here again.

This is a very nice campground; lots of shade, beautiful view with flowers and a pond. Sites are gravel with grass between the sites. Our site was level, but I saw some rigs with leveling blocks. Free wi-fi has good reception. No cable, but we received 11 digital stations from Nashville. Water pressure was adequate; hook ups convenient. The person at check in was very friendly. There is a "convenience store" in the front office with plenty of food stuff and beer. (Check the expiration dates on the cookies, though) Campground was clean and maintained. Overall, a very nice campground that would work well as a base when visiting Nashville or just an overnight stop. This is a Good Sam park. We would stay here again.

Campground is off the road, up in the woods, at the edge of the owner's property. Property includes a driving range, miniature golf course and Chinese restaurant. All sites gravel, fairly level. Sites are close, but you have room for slides. Water pressure good. No cable, but small clubhouse has a TV with satellite available for anyone to watch in a comfortable surrounding. Their are two showers, each in a private bathroom. Park is clean and taken care of. No pool, but there is a playground for the kids. Also, a 40 acre field for your dog to play in. Campground is not near the Interstates, but still excellent for an overnight stop. Owner is very friendly and accommodating. We would stay here again if in the area.

This is a beautiful park with concrete pads at each site, though make sure you get one that fits your rig. Two major draw backs, though. 1) VERY spotty wi-fi. Wife was unable to stay connected and it was a very weak signal. We were across from the office. 2) Being an in city camp ground, the road noise was very bad. Interstate on one side, busy street on the other. The clubhouse was big and empty. People at the desk were friendly. Good water pressure. Had two sewer drains at my site, very handy. Site was level and easy to get into and out of. Lots of shaded sites. We stayed next to the "twin fountain pond" and we could hear the fountain and bull frogs at night, when the traffic died down. A great place to base camp when touring OK City. We would stay again if in the area.

Nice clean park with sidewalks! Donuts & coffee in the office for breakfast. Site was large and level. Office hosts were nice. Good size park. The wi-fi was available, but you have to pay. They do have a PC in the office. We had to run the AC fan all night to quiet down the road noise. Easy on and off I-40. Some sites had trees. We had an escort to the site. We would stay here again.

Once in a while we get a good one, this is one. The CG is fairly new, very clean and very big sites with concrete pads. Level. The people were very friendly in the office. We had BBQ in the clubhouse, something they offer every evening. Easy to get in and out of the park and I-40. No road noise, even when sitting outside. Coming from NC, we're not use to not having trees, but it seems to be the norm in Texas. Each bath house had a laundry in it. This is a first rate CG. Highly recommend it for a night stop, or to hang out for a few days. It's not it the GPS yet, but TL guide has it listed.

As mentioned in the other reviews, this is a nice CG. Friendly staff, neat store, plenty of shade, good size sites for pull throughs. Campground is heavily wooded, but access to sites were not bad. It had been raining for a couple of days so the dog walk was a bit muddy, but the park had good drainage and no water accumulated on the sites. Cable TV worked great. We used this for an overnight stop and it worked out great.

This is a good overnight stop off of I-40. There was a lot of highway noise in the afternoon, but it was not bad at night. We used the wi-fi with no problems. It had been raining for a few days and there was a lot of standing water around, but not in the sites. There are no trees or shade. Dog run is a strip by a fence, but we walked ours behind the storage units. Staff was very friendly. Only problem I had was hooking up and disconnecting from the water spiket. It's below ground and I had to kneel down, use both hands and man handle the hose to get it to work; not fun in the rain.

This is not an RV Park, as mentioned in an earlier post. This is a trailer park full of many beat up, old, poorly taken care of trailers and campers. Junk cars parked in the sites. There were some over night or short trem campers, but not many. We pulled in and drove around the rough rutted gravel roads. The sites were not level. Strickly an overnight park, and that's only if the local Wal Mart is full.

We stayed here over New Year's weekend. They were in process of removing a number of trees to make access to some of the sites easier for larger rigs. The sites are kind of close, but level. There are 3 dog runs. This would be an ideal base for visiting the Wilmington area. The park personnel were very friendly. We arrived 2 hours after closing, but a couple were still in the office and checked us in. It's not the nicest KOA, but it is pretty good.

Spent a long weekend on a double site on the lake front. The park was clean. The site was large and easy to back into as well as being level. Single sites are cheaper. Being that there is no sewer at the site, we used the bath house a few times. It was clean, but did not have heat. There was a walking path to the lake with a nice shore line, excellent for fishing; though the fish did not cooperate this trip. The CG has a boat ramp, too. The leaves were just beginning to change and the views are beautiful. We'll be back in the Spring.

This is one of the best KOA CG we've been. GNATS?? This is the South, use a little bug spray. The park was clean, sites were large & level & shaded & quiet, even with it close to I-95. Park personnel were very friendly. If you have a dog, keep an eye out for the guys on the carts, they'll slip fido a treat when they drive by! My dog loved it. Nicely stocked camp store. It was 95+ degrees while we were here but the pool was large & clean. There's a covered patio with ceiling fans by the pool.NICE. We spent a weekend here because it's close to home, but we'll be back when we want to get away for a short trip.

The most impressive thing about this CG is the size of the sites. They are very good size. The park is very clean, as were the bathrooms. They are individual bathrooms. The personnel were friendly and helpful. The pool and hot tub were clean and well maintained. The internet is via satellite and they admit it's not the fastest, but it works. There is a beautiful lake for fishing. (catch and return only) A nice path around the lake as well as some nature trails. Saw lots of fish, but they didn't like my worms. Boat & bicycle rentals available. There are sites with trees, though not a lot of shade. All roads and sites are asphalt and the sites were level. This is one of our favorite CG and we will return.

This has to be one of the best campgrounds we have been to. We had a buddy lot that was level and wooded. The dog park is great. You can let your dog run free in a LARGE fenced lot on a lake. This is a good family CG with a rock climbing wall, a splash park, miles of bike trails and kayaks. Charleston is 4 miles away and has all kind of neat stuff to do.

Park was clean. People were friendly. If you must have cable TV, forget it. Was able to pick up 4 local stations via antenna. Sight was level and good size. Pool wasn't open, yet. There was a small zoo, though there were no animals present. There was a section with many full timers, it was on the other side of the park. The pet walk was a deserted lot next to the campground. It is about 15 miles outside of Charleston, so beware of rush hour traffic. Overall, this was a nice park.

Spent Labor Day weekend here. Large CG, lots of things for the kids. Easy access to the beach. We were in a section next to tent campers, a different experience, but it was OK. Saturday night movie and entertainment at their pavilion. Great sea food restaurants in the area and one of the best steak houses I've ever eaten at. It has a secured gated entrance. Nice.

We stayed here during the changing of the leaves. It was beautiful. We arrived late, in the dark. The manager saw us pull in and led us to our site. The site was a little close to the next one, but nobody was there so it was OK. There is about 50 full time sites, but being out of season, there were not many people there. If you like to fish, this is the place. There is a nice pier, there are boat rentals, a snack bar and lots of neat fishing stuff, including bait, in the store. The park personnel were very helpful and friendly. We visited Richard Childress winery (awesome) and local antique shops. There is also an old hardware store in Lexington, really cool. This will definitely be a CG we will be returning to.

This park opened in the early 80's and is run by the family. It is a bit rustic, but clean. The people in the office were friendly and accommodationg. The sights are grass, and; typical Florida. Most sights are shaded with large pine trees. There are a few full time sites. Most sites are pull through and large enough to accommodate big rigs. Threre was a motorcycle event going on down in Daytona, so the I-95 traffic was probably a little louder than usual. We heard little noise once inside, though. There is only the one shower facility, but we only used it once. There were a few items in the office/store. We spent the weekend in St. Augustine and found this park to be convenient for that purpose. As I said, it is a rustic park, actually kind of neat, but clean and friendly. We will probably stay there again. It would be an ideal place to spend a night. Easy to get in and out of. Easy access to I-95. Camping World is across the Interstate.

The people were friendly. This is definitely an over night park, maybe a base for visiting Atlanta. It is NOT a resort. All sites are gravel, but level. Most are pull though diagonally. Very little shade. It was 101 degrees when we were there. The pool is large and clean. They shut the pool at 9 p.m. A little early for me, especially with the HOT days. The sites are VERY close together. My awning actually extended into my neighbor's site. We stayed here because it was close to family. We will probably find another park if we go back to Atlanta.

Clean park with friendly personnel. Has a nice park/pavilion where they hold social activities.e.g., karaoke. Two large dog runs, fenced in and secure. There is a self service car wash at the park's entrance where you can wash your RV. They even give you a free one. This is a great park to base camp when visiting Wilmington. Great restaurants and junk stores downtown.

We were assigned a great pull through site with a patio, fire pit and furniture. Nice dock on the Neuse River with fishing and pedal boats. The fishing was more like worm killing, but that was me, not the KOA. Camp personnel were friendly and kept the park very clean. We were going to use the pool, until I found ducks swimming in it after dark. Yuk! There is a small fishing pond for the kids. Facilities were clean and well equipped. Great place to base camp for visiting New Bern. Go see the old hardware store downtown.

The park personnel were friendly. We stayed in the new lower section. The trees were too young to provide much shade. Interstate noise could be heard, but with our AC running or TV on, we couldn't hear anything. The older upper section seemed a bit tight. It is a great place to set up base for visiting the Asheville area attractions. In a few years when the trees have grown a bit, the lower sites will be very nice.
