This is a tough park to rate as we were ambivalent about it. The lack of hookups forced us to use the bathrooms which were nasty and crowded. We stayed in site 357 which is more or less an asphalt parking lot with RV spots on it. We were forced to pick this site because no other regular sites were available. We thought we would hate it but found it okay for a couple days. The asphalt can be hot in warm weather. Site 357 and adjacent sites have satellite access. At night the campfire smoke in this park can be stifling. We have stayed here before in other spaces on dirt and found some of them challenging to back in or level the motorhome. Ambivalence is the correct word that we found to describe this park. There is a lot of area for walks inside the park.
We liked this RV park. The owners were great. Like the last review stated, we could not get our motorhome into the pull through originally assigned to us, but the problem was rectified quickly by the person that guided us. The park was crowded and tight, but I saw 40' and 45' motorhomes in the park. Maneuvering is tricky, but not impossible. There was a small doggie park that our dogs liked. This was our second time staying there.
I fully agree with the last review. This park was full of long term construction workers. The sites were small. The children of these workers were plentiful and screamed until well past 11pm. To make matters worse a backhoe was digging up water lines directly behind our motorhome at 6am. We were not warned about this ahead of time nor about having the water turned off the next morning. Mud was plentiful too due to repairs. It was expensive and a poor value. The office staff was not nice nor helpful. I would have given them a 2 rating but they were easy to find, seemed safe, and the Wi-Fi did work for a little while during the evening. You can forget about a satellite signal in this park due to the tree canopies.
This is an OK park. We only stayed one night, but it was quiet. Our pull-through site was small and would not accommodate a motorhome greater than 35 feet pulling a car. We have a 33 foot motorhome and small toad which filled the entire site. Inside the park was somewhat tight to maneuver, but was okay for our 33' motorhome. I would not want to maneuver with a larger rig after dark. The office staff seemed nice and pet friendly. We walked around inside the park and the outer sites were "seasonal" but not trashy. Water pressure was fine, but the sewer connections are located at the far end of the site and required 25 feet of sewer hose which was a pain. A rig with a larger car would definitely need more sewer hose. The water and electrical connections were on the opposite side of the site from the sewer connection. In other words the hookups were challenging. The park seemed safe, quiet, and was not hard to find from the interstate.
I agree totally with the previous post. This is a superb RV park. The park can accommodate any size rig including the 45' motorhomes with 20' trailers behind. The cost was high for this area, but after staying in another park in the area it is worth it. There is a fenced in dog park for our furry friends. The only minus is that Verizon cell service is almost non-existent here. A cell phone amplifier is helpful, and if the park installed a park wide amplifier this park would be rated an 11.
The campground is fairly good overall. It is safe, quiet (except for the railroad a time or two), and quite adequate. The railroad was not a problem for us. The campground is behind the museum which is simply a diamond in distress. The museum is in major need of maintenance as well as several other buildings on the property. However, my friend stayed in the newer hotel and it was pretty good. We didn't use the bathrooms. The utilities were fine but locked in a tiny shed at each site. Yes I said locked in a tiny shed that you access with a key from the office. The restaurant was horrid and was a mistake. There was a really nice grill across from the courthouse which was about 5 blocks away. We walked to the grill and an IGA grocery store. Our site had sand burrs so watch out for these for our furry friends. The site cost was for 50 amp service and included a ticket to the museum and an acceptable continental breakfast. I would definitely stay here again. Be sure and see the museum as I was astounded by how such treasures are housed in such a run down building.
I have stayed here many times. There are actually a few camping areas as part of the fairgrounds. The main fairground area has sites on the north side (Trinity Rd), northeast (Trinity Rd/Blue Ridge Rd), and west (Youth Center Drive) and behind James Hunt Horse Complex (Youth Center Dr). The Horse Complex sites are new and nice. The Trinity Rd sites are just a few along the fence (outside the fence) and you can pull-through. The west sites are inside the fence and fairly uneven but okay. The northeast corner is inside the fence and are pretty nice too. When you arrive find a spot and call the NC Fairgrounds security folks. The number is on the fence at the horse complex or you can wait until the security person comes around. As far as I know the Horse Complex is open 24hrs. The other area gates are locked late and you will enter and exit through the main gate on Blue Ridge Rd. The only major drawback about this place would be the dirt roads. The entrance to the Horse Complex on Youth Center Rd behind the Horse Complex. The Horse Complex has no bathrooms but the main fairground's bathrooms are located in the middle of the fairground.
This is a nice park but with caveats. We stayed in site 5 and the site was listed as moderately level I believe. Our 33' RV front wheels were 8" off the ground when leveled. The road through the park is maybe 1 or 1.5 miles and is narrow and winding. You will meet cars and it might be a problem as it was for us. I came in after dark and was unnerved how narrow the road was. I will not return to this park due to the road through the park. The gate has a combination lock so you can get out at night which was an unexpected. You will get the combination when you check in. The camp hosts were very nice people. Too bad the park isn't more larger big rig friendly.
