A very nice campground. $46 rate includes taxes. Paved level spots, great views, full hookups, fire rings. No cable or antenna/air TV. Several satellite TVs were in operation in the park and should work from most sites. Three different Wi-Fi systems to connect to, but none were particularly strong from our spot (#38). Verizon and AT&T cellphone service worked fine. The park has numerous hiking trails, fishing and boating, and an Arnold Palmer signature golf course (a superb course, well maintained and well staffed). There is a lodge with a spa, gift shop, dining, and a complimentary boat ride, though we did not use these. Rental boats, kayaks, canoes, and bicycles are available for $15 daily fee per family. Not much shopping nearby, but a WalMart and a Shop and Save grocery store in Weston. A Super WalMart is in Buckhannon, about an additional 10 miles away. Beautiful mountain scenery all around; campground is on a peninsula on a lake. You must make a reservation well in advance, so plan ahead.

We stayed at Camp Burson; a very nice park. The office has a small store with camping and fishing supplies and snacks. Our site (#22) was a paved pull-through, shaded, and fairly level. Most sites appear level and most with ample room between sites. Some of the back-in sites are too short for longer RVs. Good water pressure. Park Wi-Fi would not connect our first night, and was spotty for the remainder of our four day stay. Verizon service worked well for our hotspot; AT&T cellphone was weaker, but worked. No cable, but we picked up about 4 TV stations over the air; Fox was the only major network. We did not try satellite, but saw one rig with a dish out, so I believe it would work. Bathhouse is in good condition, was clean, and had two washers and two dryers at $1.50 each. Lots of families and children on the campground, but none were loud or unruly. Hungry Mother Park has excellent trails, swimming, boating and fishing--all either on site or a short drive away. We played golf at the local Holston Hills golf course-- nicely maintained, not crowded, and $34 per person with cart. We also visited a local distillery--very small one person operation. Downtown Marion has nice shopping and a few restaurants.

Excellent park in every respect: beautiful views, level sties, immaculate grounds, strong Wi-Fi, and friendly staff (especially Jason). Mountain views include the French Broad River and a distant model airplane airport where you can watch the planes maneuver (but too far away for noise). There is even a freight train in the distance adding to the evening ambiance. Bathrooms are clean, but not air conditioned. Nice laundry room with two coin operated washers and dryers ($1.50 each). Premium sites 1-7 have beautiful sunset views, but are in the sun all day. We were in premium site 8 that had both views and shade. Drive up the hill is tight but not difficult. Take your awnings down if leaving for the day as high winds during an afternoon thunderstorm damaged out neighbor's awning.
