This is a really well kept and convenient spot on the Pungo River, just east of Belhaven, NC. They have a boat launch ramp and propane available, and are the last and best place to wait overnight for the Swan Quarter ferry to Ocracoke Island.
Nothing has changed over the past several years that we have enjoyed this park, EXCEPT the PRICE!!! Notwithstanding the current recessionary environment, York County, which leases the property from Duke Power Company, is making up for being under-priced in a BIG WAY! To jump from $10 per night to $26 is too tough for the seniors, and the younger folks pay even more. Consequently, although attractive, well managed and with excellent maintenance, the price increase has resulted in far fewer tenants. You will not need a reservation (which they don't take anyway) but plenty of vacant sites exist today. It will be a long time before this dumb move is forgotten!
Well, the best thing we can say about this place is the food in their restaurant was quite good, and in fact, a surprise, since the RV camping part of their business model was a poor effort at best. The unmown field (no roads to defined sites, just electric boxes and water faucets scattered in the grass) was rough to drive over. The bathrooms were primitive, dirty and uninviting. There was plenty of room, as there were only a half dozen other tenants. Leaving the rig hooked up was the better choice, but in fairness, we were favorably impressed with the FOOD . . . the menu was typical, but the evening special, with a local beer we never heard of, hit the spot. And several locals were eating with us in an attractive dining area next to the classic saloon space. Very few folks were there to drink, and it was a top notch family restaurant, set along Highway 37 a few miles northeast of Libby.
Very attractive park, and extremely pleasant staff! We parked originally for one night, but ended up staying 3 nights while our fifth wheel landing gear was repaired. The staff located a knowledgeable and competent repair service, Valley Mobile Home & RV Center, run by Herschel, who promptly drove to our site, analyzed the problem, and replaced a broken set of bevel gears, re-assembled the strut and sent us on our way for a very modest fee. The Park has paved roads, lots of shade, a quiet atmosphere, very little noise and the secret is out . . . they were full each night! We definitely recommend this place for any stay, any size RV!
After a long hot drive west, this park was quite welcoming, easy access off I-90, no hassle check-in, full hookups and we pulled straight through, leaving our tow vehicle hooked up for one night's stay. And the best part for us was the extremely hospitable owners who had set up tables and chairs in their office for our WiFi use. No sweat, and we honestly did not notice the Interstate traffic, since we were bushed and retired soon after supper. In Montana one had best get used to traffic noise of some sort, as every road follows a river, but the first improvements over the Indian trails were the railroads, and they are ubiquitous, have loud horns, and run 24/7! Oh well, such is the basic transportation industry in this productive state. We would definitely stay there again, and so advise others who need an easy site for a night or two.
A real gem set amid the towering Cabinet Mountains along the Clark Fork River, just off Highway 200 at its intersection with the Bull River along Highway 56 in Northwestern Montana. Grassy sites, lots of room and shade, a short walk through the woods to the river, with a boat dock for swimming or fishing. The Forest Service maintains a public boat launch ramp half a mile away; the campground has a laundry on site, and its website says it all! We enjoyed the quiet, the friendly owners who live on site, and the price is right! Cell phone service is available from most carriers, too.
