Stayed here overnight on our way to Savannah. We had a nice level pull through site that allowed us to stay hooked up overnight. The campground is conveniently located to I-26 and is friendly and well maintained. There is a nice clean pool, playground, and very clean bathhouses. Basic camp store with just essentials. We would stay here again if we ever need an overnight stop.

Stayed here for 5 nights to explore the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge/Smoky Mountains area. This is a very nice family oriented campground. It is located 11 miles outside the town of Gatlinburg and well worth the drive for the peace and quiet. The sites are very large and the entire campground is very well maintained. There is a nice pool and hot tub as well as a small playground and basketball court for the kids. There was a building for group events, but we did not go in there and they did not offer “activities” while we were there. When you check in, they give you a great informational packet about area activities to get you started. The bathhouse was very clean and had large stalls and showers. There is also a small but functional laundry facility. Make sure you bring plenty of bug spray as the mosquitoes were hungry! We would stay here again.

Stayed here overnight to pass through the mountains. We had a water/electric primitive site (by choice) in the back of the campground. From what I saw, all of the lower full hook-up sites were level and fairly large. The primitive sites were not very level, but nice and quiet. There is a lot offered at this campground, including two fenced in dog parks, a large game room including an arcade, batting cage, and toys for little ones to play on. There is indoor/outdoor mini golf, a small playground, and a nice pool with a waterslide into it. All of the facilities were well maintained and the staff was friendly. The camp store was a typical KOA camp store offering your essential foods and some trinkets. It was very quiet the day we were there, but that might be due to it being a Sunday only. We would stay here again.

We stayed here in travel trailer to visit Pittsburg and Kennywood theme park. Somehow we got a site at the top of the hill mixed in with mostly seasonal sites. (Most of the renter sites are in a field at the bottom of the hill.) Our site was a little small, but had great shade and a wonderful view of the campground and mountains. There was a decent playground and sandpits for smaller children. The pool was well maintained and busy when we went, but it also had a smaller wading pool for the little ones as well as two slides into the main pool. We only used the bathhouse as we were pulling out but they were clean. The camp store is very “bare essentials” and did not offer much. This is a very friendly campground and is good for exploring the Pittsburg area. We would stay here again.

This is a very pretty campground that sits on the side of the mountain. The sites are fairly level with a gravel pad. All sites are full hook up. The campground had Wi-Fi but would only work outside the camper. The campground is in three sections and we stayed in the B section which was at the bottom which looked to be a newer area. With the campground being built on the side of a mountain there are a lot of steep hills with terraced sites. The sties at the top of the mountain can be rough to get to if you are pulling a trailer as I saw a couple of trucks and trailers being pulled up the mountain with a tractor. I did not see any motor homes have any issues with the climb. This is mostly due to the loose gravel roads in the campground. They do allow tent camping on the RV sites. This was a very quiet campground. There is an outdoor pool but it was closed for the season. The pool is far from the main part of the campground so I would see most people driving instead of walking to the pool. There is a catch and release pond in the campground but did not do any fishing either. Cavern tours are at a reduced rate if you stay in the campground but we did not take the tour. There are a few hiking trails also. I would stay here again

This was our 4th year staying at Priateland and we still love it. This was the first year that we had major rain storms and we learned that the sites we have been using for years flood with lots of rain. Many of the sites around 135 were completely under water and Murrells Inlet Road near those sites was a flowing stream. This was after 3 major storms that dumped lots of water and ate lots of awnings over 4 days. Also the sites around 1418 had the water lapping at the campers with the high lake. We drove around after each storm and found these two areas to be the most affected by the heavy rain. Every one had water issues, these were just the worst. The water drained back after a few hours but left lots of mud that really never dried even with high heat. One year with rain out of 4, is not bad. Did not hold this against the campground as they have no control over mother nature. As normal, there were golf carts everywhere which is part of the fun. The security patrol was visual and actively enforcing the rules. I witnessed them take the keys to multiple golf carts because the drivers were under age and driving recklessly. Camp store has almost everything you need and the grill has great ice cream and food and pizza. The indoor pool was cooler in temperature then the outdoor pool, which was as warm as bath water as was the lazy water. The miniature golf course wasn’t bad. There are basketball courts but I did not use them. The beach was very clean. For being a beach resort, the bath houses near me were very clean and well stocked. The only bad thing I have to say about the campground is the internet is almost worthless. Do not waste your money. Too many people using the same access. The network was way overloaded. This was sold by a third party. The staff was very friendly. I will be back next year in different sites though.

Very nice little campground. Very clean and maintained well. Most sites are level pull throughs. Very basic camp store will a small selection. Three separate fenced-in clean dog walks. The only issue is that the sewer and power connections are so far apart just about every one had to either use extra sewer hose or an extra power cord to reach. Little or no road noise for being off a main road. Great location to explore the Wilmington Area. The staff was very friendly. Will stay here again

Nice campground with concrete pads. Very level, very close to all of Williamsburg attractions. Nice pool and a huge blow up water slide for both kids and adults. Only problem were the black flies when you would try to eat out side. Will stay here again.

This is not the first time we have stayed here. The grounds were very dirty when we arrived. Some trash sat in front of open sites for two days. All dumpsters were full. Dog park was very dirty with over filled trash and poo everywhere. By day three everything was clean and back to normal. I do not know if the 4th of July weekend was too much for them. Once everything was cleaned it stayed that way. Beach and pool were great. Will stay here again just not right after the 4th.

Very nice campground, We stayed on the sun deck this year. No problem with sap on the camper. The sites in the back are very wooded and leave a layer of sap on everything. Will stay here again

This is one of the prettiest CG that I have ever seen. All of the little attention to detail on the grounds add to its beauty. The park is very spread out and very private. We were in a buddy site which were two pull-throughs facing each other with a connecting concrete pad between them. Every site is paved and every site has a concrete pad and a grill. There is no shortage of things to do with a game room, pool, lake activities which included swimming, a slide, fishing, and boats. The camp store is more a gift shop with little trinkets and figurines. The bathrooms are a work of art. It would be hard to find nicer ones. Their golf cart policy is a little incoherent. You must return the golf cart that you paid to use, in order to charge the batteries. This causes you to lose 8 hours of use that you paid for. The campground has internet but it is very slow and was down for 3 of the 4 days we were there. I would have given this campground a 10 but they charged me three times for the stay and only after me calling multiple times and multiple days did the problem get resolved. This was just not something I wanted to deal with while I was on vacation.

This is a great family campground that we return to every summer. We make reservations a year in advance to ensure our sites and have never had a problem. The premium campsites are very spacious and have a wooden hut to protect you from the sun on the site. There are tons of activities for everyone in the family, not to mention open access to the beach. Our family enjoys the pool with the lazy river, fishing in the lakes and golf cart parades at night. The camp store has everything that you could possibly need and there is great food at the camp grill. The restrooms are as clean as you can keep beach restrooms with the sand. This is a huge campground, so a golf cart is a must. They do not allow you to bring your own or reserve in advance, but we have never had a problem renting one. There are really three sections to the place (open sites close to the beach, wooded sites close to the pool, and seasonal and cabin rentals) so look at a map when you book your site. You could spend a week in this campground and not have to leave.

This was a very nice and small park. The campers are packed on one another but the ocean access makes it worth while. Some longer camper rigs hang out into the CG road but do not pose any problems. The owners are as nice as they come. When we had to cut our stay short they offered a refund of the unused time. I would not accept the entire amount as it was not their fault we had to leave. The park is composed of half seasonal people and half travelers. There is not much here for children as the playground is a backyard swing set that looks like it does not get used much. There was a pool table and a small campground store with basic items. If you looking for 100% beach and not a lot of people this is the place to go because the beach is uncrowded and there is not much going on in the surrounding area.

Great location for spending time in Ocean City Maryland with only a short drive to get to the city. The owners have made some additions from last year to the location with a Great Hall which holds a camp store, arcade, and laundry room. They have also added cabins to the back of the grounds. The beach access is nice and is well maintained. It is not a large beach (no waves) but the best things are the sand bars just off the shore. The sand bars can easily be walked to or swam to by you, your dogs or kids at low tide. Once you are there you can find lots of ocean life swimming past your feet. The fenced in dog run has been improved with a lower lattice to help keep in the smaller dogs inside. There is a large field and a playground for the kids. We stayed in a normal site with full hook up but they do offer their club level with have a gated entrance, paved sites a grill, their own pool and I believe their own bath house… Not for me though… The grounds are not super busy and there are not a lot of golf cart. Assateague state park is across from the campground and the horses can be seen if they are on the beach that day. With the oc airport near by you can watch sky divers all day as they float back to the ground. They run busses to Assateague and Ocean City but we did not use these services. It was nice last year but it is even nicer this year. It will not be long before you need to book a year in advance in order to get a site.

We were here for Memorial Day weekend. If you are looking for quiet, this is not the place. There are tons of golf carts and bikes and traffic all weekend. It's an incredibly large campground, so if you are in the back, book your golf cart early. The pool and lake were incredibly overcrowded. However, there are tons of activities for the family on site. Unless you want to visit the 7-11 or pizza place, there is not much to do locally. We enjoyed the large grassy sites to spread out and relax for a weekend. This is an every year booking that is close to where we live that we use to make sure everything is working after the winter.

Good basic campground if you want to explore the Williamsburg area. Sites are a little dusty depending on the weather. We booked multiple sites for a family gathering that were messed up, so the family was not together. The staff did their best to put us as close together as possible. Basic playground and pool and an excellent dog run. No daily activities for the kids when we were there (late March for spring break).

Nice campground. The sites in the trees are a little tight but the owners do everything to make sure you get the fit you need. We were there for the 4th of July and the reenactments stuff they had on site was great! Plenty of activities for the kids and the creek along the back of the campground is great for kids and dogs. We have already booked for next year.
