This park is clean as were the restrooms/showers. Both the laundry area and pool area were spotless. Overall the park is very clean and nicely laid out (except for site size). WiFi was a little slow and hard to get connected to and any type of television is all but non existence. The sites are very close together and for the most part setup for motor coaches. Our camper is 38 feet in length and pretty much filled up the pull through site we had. Once unhooked, parking the truck was an issues. Now the park does give some beautiful views of the mountains. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Wears Valley, where the park is located, is a wonderful area to camp. Important note: If you are considering this park do not let your GPS bring you into this park via Townsend, TN. The section of road (HWY 321) that runs from Townsend to Wears Valley is not a safe pull for anything larger than a pop-up. Use Hwy 321 South from Sevierville, TN.

Staff is friendly, park is clean, and sites are ample. This was the second time we had used this RV Park. The roads were in bad shape and in talking to the manager he stated that his roads were being reworked. I know that two years ago they were paved versus gravel now. Apparently, his contractor the first time around did a very poor job and now the campground is having to scramble a little to get the roads back in shape. The park is easy to access and actually a very nice place to stay if passing through or camping to explore the local area. WiFi is available, while the staff will readily admit it is not the best. Restrooms and showers are all private enclosures and very spacious. Certainly high quality and nice. The pool was not open yet, but the area looked very clean and well maintained.

If you are a water and sand individual. this park might be for you. We camped as part of a camping club event. I thought the sites were a little to close. We kept our rear blinds closed all the time so as not to be looking in another campers rear window. The wind blew continuously and at times the only solution to all the rocking was to run the slides in on the camper. I have to admit that the facility was clean. Showers were clean as was the restrooms. The majority of the sites do not have a water view because of the direction they are aligned. The most disturbing issue was the non-camping fisherman. This park is located on both sides of the road. One side has a gate requiring access codes. The other is open to anyone who wants to drive through and locals use the access to fish. They do not exactly care if you are camped on the side or not. Utilities for the camper were strangely split. Water was completely at the front of the site while electric and sewer very near the back. This made positioning the camper a little challenging. Luckily I carry several extra feet of water hose. Sites were paved as were the interior roads. Not as level as they look though.

This park was a surprise. The office, showers, and restroom were all spotless. The laundry was very modern. Parking sites were fairly level for a campground in such a hilly area of Virginia. Every site was well shaded. Utilities were nicely located in one grouping which is not always the case. Access to the park is fairly easy, being just a couple miles off the interstate. I would have no problem camping here again.

This park is easy access off I-95. I found the staff friendly. Wife used the laundry and was pleased with everything. The bath house was clean, while a little dated in layout and needing some updates. Interior roads need gravel as do the parking sites. The parking area look as they had not seen work in several years.

Staff was very friendly and helpful in getting parked. The park is typical of an older KOA in layout. The only real issue was with the roads needing some gravel and general grounds care. It was easy to see that in rain the park would be a little sloppy. The park was easy to access and if we pass through New Bern again, I'd certainly consider this park again. The bathhouse was clean, but dated and could use a little updating.

First, the rate shown represents a 90 day snowbird rate. The park is still one of our favorite places to stay. With that, it is showing some age and the infrastructure is needing some updates. The laundry room needs attention as several washers and dryers have been "out of order" for the stay, the roads are paved but cracking and need sealing before they are gone completely. Most every site needs some attention as there is little grass now and mostly sand. The park did get the new Wi-Fi system up and running this year, which was a plus. Staff as always is friendly and helpful. The park seems to be moving towards more and more permanent sites which is a big disappointment.

As always, an absolutely spotless park with extremely friendly staff. Easy access, good location, quiet, clean and beautiful location for this park.

This is a very well maintained older park. Many sites are well shaded. The sites are level with concrete patios, swings on each site, grills on sites, and nicely mowed grass space between sites. We camped with our camping club and most of the coaches were 38+ feet in length. No one had any issues with the size of the sites. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Some sites on one side of the lake are pull thru. Sites on the back side are all back in, the owner leads each coach to the side and assist in positioning. This is not a big campground by some standards, but it is certainly a very well maintained and worth the stay if in the area. Just 4 miles off the interstate, the park is easy to access.

The park was very cramped. We were traveling with four other rigs (40 ft) and they had a few parking issues getting turned/backed into the sites. I was lucky enough to get a pull thru site but without sewer. Since we all were just passing through one night was not much of a problem. Certainly was a lot of shade and low hanging trees. The park itself is hard to find and one of our party who was meeting the rest of the group there actually got lost and wound up on a country road he did not want to be on at all. There are many full time sites taken by trailers that obviously never move. Overall the park was clean, restrooms clean (old), and the campers friendly. I felt secure and would use it again for an overnight.

Simply an extremely fine place to stay. The sites are all paved, level, private, and beautifully maintained. The manager and his staff are very friendly. Showers are modern, clean, with a lovely clubhouse. When you look at the pictures online, it is what you will see there. Every site is just perfect, not just a few.

The campground is certainly dated and needs a ton of work. I did not see any sites that were not needing new gravel. The sites have not been updated for several years. We found rusty screws at multiple sites that appeared to be the same as used on the picnic tables. I requested and moved from our first site because of a ditch that had been dug to repair a water line and not properly filled back in. This hazard was right out our door, and I could just see the wife tripping and falling. The campground sites are short in length. Our rig is 37.5' long and needed a little play to get positioned well on the site. Some of the other units we were camping with were even worse. There is no camp store. The advertised breakfast cafe was not open, no propane, no ice or anything else available. While clean, the showers and restrooms were certainly dated and needing work. The campground is right off a major road, and there is a lot of road noise all night long. Cable worked well, internet connection worked well, but that was about all. The water pressure was at best around 20# according to my gauge. This would not be a place I would want to stay for many nights and only as a overnight if nothing else was available.

One stay here and it will be very hard to stay someplace else. The campsites are simply huge. Except for just a very few most are 90 ft plus pull through in length. Only about 20 sites are back-in and those are lake side sites. The only two things that might be of some issue for a few is the lack of cable and internet at your site. However, the local channels are very good and there are several. Secure internet is available at the clubhouse and laundry room. The park is nearly a mile off the road and so quiet at night it is amazing. This park has a staff that is head and shoulders above most when it comes to be friendly and helpful. This is our second stay here and we'll be back next season for the winter. The rate i've shown is a little misleading as we stayed for the winter season (90 days). Normal rate is around $50.

We stayed here two years ago right after a major modernization of the park. In the two years since somethings have been neglected. The park is currently partly closed for new construction. In the showers, while still clean, it was obvious that the repairs made were not the best quality. The staff was mostly young, but friendly. Most of the open sites are paved and easy to park. The price at a KOA, and this one is no exception, is a little high in comparison other parks. With that said, we usually stay here because of location and because of a disastrous situation stay at another local park.

This is maybe the cleanest park I've ever stayed camped at. The grounds, camp office/meeting area, and bathrooms were spotless. Every sight is paved and level. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Access is easy off the expressway without having to drive through all the madness that is sometimes associated with traffic in this area. The price shown ($25/night) for our stay reflect the off season cost. I asked about in season price and was surprise to find it was cheaper than other campgrounds we have stayed at in the area. The only amenity I did not find here was propane refill. Wi-Fi was free and fast. The view of the river and area is great. With all that, the park only has 55 sites and if you're planning an in-season stay I would recommend reservations.

We found the staff very friendly and helpful. The RV club we were with used the facility buildings and they were excellent. Cable reception and channels were so good I did not even bother with the satellite for the week we spent in the campground. I did not use their Wi-Fi connection so I can not comment on connection speeds. The restrooms were clean and easy to access. There is a truck and RV wash on the campground for use. This was a nice extra. The wife really liked the camp store, thought it was great. The campground is easy to access from highway 65, about 4 miles. Overall, the campground location proved to be very good for Branson Activities. I do not remember any outside noises, a very quiet campground. The only reason I gave the campground a "9" was the levelness of the sites. Had to move from one site, just could not get level and was no place to park truck. Overall, most all the sites were long enough. We happen to hit a weekend with another rally of Class "A"s and all the longer sites were taken. Water pressure was fine, electric was good, condition of the services was good and well located. If in the area again, I think this is a camp we will use. Looked at several others and there are some good ones, however, this one is excellent.

This is a nice over night stop. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I thought the bathroom/showers were very clean, but maybe a little dated and needing some updates. The campground was easy to access from I-44. There was some road noise and the train tracks did offer some noise. While neither was great it was still a little of a distraction. My only reasons for the "8" are around the restrooms and the fact that I did notice an issue with the electrical power. There were several noticeable spikes in the power that I notices looking at my meter.

This is a young park with freshly planted trees so shade is a little sparse. If there is any thing that is a deterrent it is FedEx. The flights from the airport can interrupt your sleep some. The park is spotless as are the showers and restrooms. The pool area was very clean and easy to access. All the sites are paved with concrete patios and tables. All the interior roads are paved. Each site is well maintained with grass between sites. Most sites are back-in, however there are a dozen or so pull-through sites. Our site was very level. I noticed a few sites that trailer placement could be an issue for getting level depending on the length of your unit. There is a huge RV dealer right where you turn into the park if service is needed. If we are in this area again, we would certainly consider this park for a stay. Our rate represents a Good Sam discount rate. With only 87 sites, I would certainly suggest calling for reservations. All sites are full hookup with 50A. I travel with a personal WiFi hotspot so I never did log into the parks WiFi. The cable TV for the park worked fine with 12 channels.

This park was a very nice find and a nice little treasure off the beaten path. While some might downgrade their rating since there was no cell phone service (AT&T) and no cable TV we found this a very relaxing three days. There was good TV reception with the antenna. The park has the majority of it spaces taken with permanent trailers so I would call for reservations if planning on stopping here. However, all the permanent trailers are in excellent condition and very neat. The office help and the gentleman who helped us park were great. Our site was gravel, with a poured concrete patio as were all the other sites. The site was perfectly level and good spacing between sites with well manicured grass between sites. The hookups were well placed and in excellent condition. There is a very nice catch and release fishing lake with benches around the lake for siting. The wife and I found it very relaxing to walk around the lake in the evenings and not hear any traffic noise. The park is 13 miles off the interstate but well worth every mile for the peace and quiet. If you decide to stay here follow the park's directions from their website as Google at this time shows the park some 50 miles to the east on the wrong side of Dayton. I found their directions easy and correct for getting to the park.

This is a young park. The park has only been open for a year at the time of our visit. Our rate reflects a Good Sam discount. There was not much shade, but the owner has planted lots of tress. We were at the camp for three days and every day someone was working on sites, building picnic tables, or something else to enhance the park. The pool, showers, restrooms were absolutely spotless. There are fire rings at each camp area and every site is a full hookup site (s,e,w, 50a, 30a, 20a). While some of the sites were not as level as others, in a conversation with the owner his plans are to finish leveling and to pour concrete pads at every site. Individual sites are well spaced apart with plenty of room. The park is quiet and easy to get into off the interstate. Although, the road will make you stop and think at first when you turn off the main road, but it is actually a good road. If we are in the Georgetown area again this is a park will will use again.

From the road this campground looks very appealing, however the interior roads are gravel and very badly in need of new rock with many pot holes. Our site and a couple others we looked at were very poor and needing rock or some sort of resurfacing badly. Our site was more or less level with large trees on both sides providing some nice shade. So why give a 4 out of 10? It had rained on Thursday, pretty heavily in fact. Every place in the park was standing in water and our hookups were above my ankles in water, including the electric. It was not until the next day that I could even find the sewer connection. As it turned out, all of the connections were set lower than the site and basically surrounded by mud. When I finally got the electric box open, there was a 30amp plug with not breaker (removed, there was a hole for it) or way to shut it off before hooking up. We did not even hookup until the next morning because of the water standing around the electric. In the daylight, our pad was obviously broken and in terrible shape, a very small poured pad had a table on it. There are no fire rings and the sites are pretty close together. All sites are back-in and obviously this park is of older design set up for smaller TT’s. Our unit is not a long 5th wheel, but even it was almost too long for the sites. The staff was ok. This park is located well, but it needs some serious updating.

I am not sure that words will accurately describe how beautiful this park is. The sites are huge concrete pads with patio areas and yards between campers that make home owners want this much space. There is plenty of trees and shade without being a problem with slides or debris falling on your trailer. The view over the lake (which is large) is gorgeous. There is golf cart and bike rental available with trails and riding areas. Everything about the park is clean and maintained to the highest level I've run across anywhere. The drive in is secured with a gate requiring a pass code. I found the park employees very friendly with a large camp store. "Resort" is truly appropriate for the campground to use in their name. The park is 11 miles from North Myrtle Beach area in Longs, SC. At night, there is no noise, traffic, or anything except plenty of clear skies and peaceful relaxing atmosphere.

The rate show represents a Good Sam's discount. Overall the camp has many great points. It is very quiet at night, paved interior roads, very large sites, many are concrete, some are gravel, all are pretty level requiring little adjustment in setup. Water, sewer, electric on the full hookup sites are all well placed for ease of use. The points that drag the rating down were: no cable TV (several good air channels); Wi-Fi offered but I never could get hooked up; speed bumps (way too many). These points may not mean much to some. There was lots of shade, plenty of trash locations close to sites without having to take stuff half way across the campground. We loved being able to walk at night as the park is fairly well lit and well arranged. The showers were clean and well maintained.

This is a different kind of park. Sign on the front says "For the Older Generation". There are no swings, no play area, and not much at all that would invite a family with kids. With that said, it is a great park. Easy to get to your site, extra large areas in each campsite. Absolutely a extremely relaxing campground. We liked it so well that we decided to stay an extra night just to relax before leaving to start our last leg home. If I've run across a friendlier staff, I do not know where. Will stay here for sure if we return to the Dell's area.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Sites were easy to get into and out. Plenty of room between. If there is any complaint, it is that there was a lot of gravel and not much grass. Easy to track the gravel into the camper. Even being very close to the interstate, the park seemed to be fairly quiet at night. The pool, bathrooms, showers were all very clean. Camp store was not bad.

A very friendly staff, gravel roads, nice size level campsites, not a lot of shade, and a good place to stop over night. The town is very small, less then a 1000 population, so no services really. There is a clean pool available for use and clean restrooms/showers.

A typical KOA campground with gravel roads and parking areas. The spots were level and easy pull-in and out. The park is very quiet at night. There is minimal shade as most of the trees are fairly small. I found most of the staff to be very friendly. The showers, toliet area, and laundry are clean and well maintained. In fact, all look as though they had been refurbished within the last year.

What a little gem this campground is. We were looking for a campground in the Grand Forks area and found Red River Recreation Area. The sites are large with tremendous space between sites. The roads are paved, sites are gravel, and reasonably level. Most sites have plenty of shade and the park is very easy to walk around. The restrooms and showers are clean, modern, and well maintained. At night the park is very quiet and relaxing. There is a fire ring at each campsite. I really could not say enough good things. Perhaps the only thing missing is a pool if you are looking for something for kids to do. The only negative was not with the park rangers as they were extremely friendly and helpful. I was on the road and called the number listed for reservations. A very rude state employee informed me that reservations or request were not accepted for the same day. If I wanted to make a reservation it had to be for a future date. I said OK, then can you check your computer and tell me if the park is full and I should look at another campground. The rude person said, "No, I will not. Sites for the same day are first come first serve and you will have to take your chances." As I said earlier, this was the central reservations office for Minnesota parks. I took a chance and stopped at the park. The rangers were helpful, we got a great site for three nights with no problem.

This park is very clean and security patrols the park . It is a nice walk to the casino, but a shuttle is available. While Wi-Fi is available at the casino, in the park I was not able to get connected. The signal was very weak. I did use my mini-ATT hotspot with a full 5 bar connection. The roads are all paved, sites are paved, grass between each site, full hookups. I did have to go back to the desk and get moved to a different site. The first site was a corner site and was too short for my unit. Check-in is a little bit of an issue as you have to fight your way through guests checking into the casino at the main hotel desk. There is no shade on the majority of the sites. Most all of the sites are pull-through. As a guest of the RV park, you do have full access to anything a hotel quest has such as the pool, casino, etc.

This park is an older KOA park and it is slightly dated. The facilities are very clean though. Interior roads are rock and so are the sites which tends to make the park a little dusty. The sites are fairly generous for an older camp and we had no problem positioning our trailer. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are nice sites for tent camping and the pool was very clean. This park seemed very friendly for family activities. I found the Wi-Fi slow most of the time. There is no cable TV, but several local channels available with just the antenna. The park is 8 miles from Albert Lea, MN. A very clean town with any facility a traveler might need during a journey.

I found this park really hard to rate any higher than a "7" even though it is a nice place to stay. The cost of staying is certainly a good value. There are clean bathrooms, showers, and laundry. The facilities may be a little dated. If you are wanting to visit the Amana Colonies, the campground is the closet you'll find. At night the campground is quiet and comfortable to walk in. The staff was very friendly. Now for the reasons I rated it as a "7". Most irritating is the extremely dusty roads in the campground. Truck and trailer after spending several days here were chalky white. We were lucky and none was backed to our site thus we had a view out our rear window. Many other campers were not so lucky. If another camper is on the other side of your site you'll be looking directly into there trailer. While there is grass between the sites, the grass sure could have used some cutting. There are no trees for shade, just a few very young trees in the park.

This is a very clean and well maintained campground. It is extremely quiet with a very friendly staff. The campsites are large and easy to pull into. We camped as part of a rally with 16 other campers some with 36 and 38 foot units, no one had any issues at all. There is a fair amount of shade. The trees are fairly young. All sites have lots of grass surrounding either concrete pads or dense packed gravel. Even with the gravel there was no dust. Not the campgrounds fault, but if you have AT&T don't expect to have cell service. The campgrounds Wi-Fi connection was fast and easy to use. Entry to the campground is controlled with gates that require a pass and are locked at night (midnight).

I only rated this park as an "8" which might seem low but I will explain my concerns. Overall, would I stay here again if in this area? "Yes." The park staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Our first assigned site simply would not work with our trailer. The staff member who lead us to our spot went back to the office and got another site for us. We were lead to the new site and the staff helped me position the trailer watching for trees. The park is very clean, restrooms/showers were spotless, the camp store is very nice. While we had no children traveling with us, I could see several nice activities available and all were very well maintained. Concerns: Several of the sites are fairly tight with trees. This is good and bad. Lots of shade, but difficult positioning because of limbs. Some of the sites are very close and if the park is full there would be issues. I noticed some sites that would be a really wild to get level on I think. Our site was not that bad. About half of the sites are paved with grass and the rest are gravel with grass surrounding. Entry/exit to the park will make you pause. The level indicator on my truck recorded an "8" degree incline for the entry and it is narrow. This may not sound like much of an incline, however it is significant. As I stated earlier, we would stay here again. The park is strong enough to out weigh the other concerns. The rate I showed was with a KOA discount. We stayed here three nights.

This was our second stay at Nashville KOA in the last six months. As before, the restrooms, showers, and all other facilities were very clean. The staff was very friendly. If there is any reason for not giving the part a 10 it is because the roads are just a little tight. With many pull through sites, getting in was not a real problem. The greater concern is leaving as you pull out of the sites. Just take it slow and watch for the trees. We will use this park again.

While the park is definitely an older KOA park, this is still a comfortable place to camp. The park is very shaded and quiet. I found the park to be clean overall and the staff friendly. We did not use the pool, but in walking by it was clean and others certainly were enjoying the pool. The parking areas are gravel with large concrete patio areas. The showers/restrooms were clean, but a little dated. I used the showers and was very comfortable doing so. If anything at all was a draw back, the park is very dark at night and not comfortable walking after dark.
