U.S. Army Corp of Engineers campground on the Cumberland Reservoir. Newly remodeled sites. For a remote camping experience with boat ramp to the reservoir close by, this campground can provide it. Water and electric only, gravel sites. A dump station is on site, but requires some tight maneuvering to back into position. Roads to campground are narrow, paved, curvy and hilly. Quiet campground, with a host couple on site. Reservoir, with water on 3 sides. There is a newly equipped modern playground and some picnic tables around. But, not a lot of places to hike near the campground. The road out of the campground goes up a long, steep hill. We were visiting nearby relatives whose cabin was 3 miles away. Camped 3 nights. No TV reception. Some cell phones will work, Sprint will not.
This campground has been updated and reopened 3 years ago, after a number of years being closed. It is part of Forsyth County's Tanglewood recreational park. We stayed here just one night, to check out this park, on our way home from a 3 week trip. We last camped here in the old campground in the 1980's. The newly renovated campground has many pluses, but some minuses. All paved campground roads and pads. Full hookups, including cable TV. No noticeable road traffic noise at night. The campsite pads are not all level. Many having a fair slope to them. They did not take the opportunity to level the sites before paving the pads. My wife checked out the shower building and was not pleased. The shower building has individual showers, each with a shower curtain, but provide only a common, shared, dressing area outside the shower stalls. That is very old style and should have been changed with the campground upgrade. Maybe the planners assumed that all RV campers would use their RV showers, since they have full hookups. We don't like trying to shower in our RV's small shower, unless we really don't want to shower in a campground's showers. The Tanglewood complex provides many recreational amenities: newly opened outdoor Aquatic Center, hiking and biking trails (paved and mountain), two golf courses, BMX course, play grounds, beautiful arboretum, horse riding stables open to the public, horse riding trails. All a short drive from the campground.
A very nice campground. We spent 4 nights here. Camp sites have decent spacing between them. Many have good shade trees. Very nice pool. There is a playground for children. Very quiet at night. There is lots of roads in the campground to walk around, and a nearby cemetery to provide interesting walking and tombstone reading. NOTE: the cemetery has a no pets allowed rule, that the campground did not inform us about. The campground does not allow camper setup after quiet hours begin at 10:00PM. That is enforced, and much appreciated. (There is nothing worse than being awakened at 2:00 AM by campers coming into a campground and banging tent poles around, and talking loudly while they are setting up. Or, people sitting around and talking loudly after they set up their campsite at 3:00 AM.)
Not the best experience, nor the worst. They had messed up our full hookup, back-in site reservation by assigning us to an electric only back-in site. That was caught at arrival, but resulted in us being assigned to a flood prone, full hookup back-in site. Set up in afternoon. That evening a heavy rain shower came in, including a tornado warning. Our site filled up with water that did not drain until next morning. Staff was friendly and accommodating and let us move to a nearby site the next morning that did not experience flooding during heavy rains. But, we had to move back to our original site for last night because that site was reserved for that night. Stayed 6 nights. About the campground. The good: Playground, pool, up-dated clean showers, close to Cedar Point and Sandusky. The bad: Close, crowded campsites; double train tracks very close to campground with trains passing at least every hour; small laundry room is not air conditioned.
One of the best commercial campgrounds we have stayed at. Quiet, spaced out camp sites. No traffic, airplane, nor nighttime trains heard. Individual, doored showers and rest rooms, cleaned twice daily. No pool, but a swimming pond with sand beach, slide and float. Two separate, no fee, fishing ponds: catch and release only. Campground is close to Cuyahoga River NP. Stayed here for 9 nights.
This is a nice campground, with friendly workers, good hookups, clean shower room, a store, large rec room, and laundry facilities. It is away from the noise of highways, trains, and aircraft (It is quiet at night). Like all middle priced commercial campgrounds, sights are close together. For tenting, they even have a sheltered picnic tables for a number of sights. Two dog walking areas, besides the campground roads. We highly recommend this campground for anyone who wants to camp in the beautiful NC mountains.
This was a great campground for the price and in Orlando. The campground is at the end of the park road and has many trees. It is fairly quiet, though some highway noise can be heard from a freeway about one mile away and in line of site. I did not see any pull through sites. All sites are back-ins. About a third have full hookups, rest have water and electric. There is a dump station. The campground drive is one way and very curvy. We pull a vehicle, so you have to unhook before reaching year campsite, and hookup after leaving your campsite. We unhook in a wide area of the park road immediately after entering the entrance station. Hooked up when leaving in one of the swimming pool parking lots. There are concrete pads for every site, but some may not be level. We had site #1 with full hookups and it was pretty level. In the park, there are about 2 miles of paved multi-use trail, a disk golf course, some wood chip nature trails, a lake for fishing and boating, playgrounds, and a swimming pool with life guards. The pool and playgrounds are a short car ride from the campground. The shower rooms were cleaned daily. Each men's shower had a dressing area. There were privacy curtains on the showers, but not on all dressing areas. The women's showers had privacy curtains on both the shower and dressing area. The shower building is an older building, and is showing its wear. We give Bill Frederick Park a high rating for its natural setting, having full hookups, low fees, being convenient to Orlando's sites, and not far from Universal Studios and Disney World.
We stayed here for 3 nights while we toured the area. The major attraction for us was the Okefenokee Swamp which is about 30 minute drive from the campground. This is a private campground, not a state park or the likes. Very clean facilities, including the showers, laundry room, store and grounds. No trashy seasonal campers. It is fairly close to the interstate and a truck stop. The noise from the interstate was not very noticeable. Trucks leaving the truck stop could be heard, but did not bother our sleeping. Managers and owner are on premises and are very friendly and helpful. We have put Country Oaks RV Park on our top list of campgrounds.
We stayed here 5 nights while we visited sites around and in Savannah. Skidaway campground is heavily wooded. Has a number of trails. Most of the campsites are pull throughs as a loop off of the campground roads. Care must be taken for some sites, since there are large trees along the campground road making tight conditions. The campground is very quiet, with little road noise heard. Frogs and toads were the noisiest creatures we heard at night. The entrance gate is closed at night, but you are given a gate entry code for late return to the campground. The shower rooms are old, but cleaned daily. WiFi internet is available 24 hours a day near the campground check-in office. There are no sites with sewer hookups, but there is a dump station. A very natural and scenic campground with much space between the sites. A campground host is on site. There are some washers and dryers at the shower/rest room buildings. There is a nature center for the kids, along with the various nature trails. We found that over the air TV reception was better than the provided cable TV hookup. Our daily rate included a discount for being senior citizens. We could drive to downtown Savannah in about 20 minutes from the campground. There is a gas station and grocery store within a mile of the state park entrance. Skidaway Island Campground is now on our top campgrounds to visit list.
