This was our second visit here. We stayed in site 29. Very large and roomy sites. Lots of trees and well shaded. Sites are spread out for privacy. Swimming beach is a short drive away. I only wish it was in walking distance. Bathhouse was clean and up to date. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Big sites. It is very clean. Site 19 has a nice view of the lake. I did have problems with the water hookup. It wouldn't stop leaking. I tried everything (yes, my washer was the first thing I checked). We went exploring to see the two other campgrounds. This was the best for quiet, big sites with nice views. But the other two are superior also. Shopping, etc is just a few miles away. They said that had Wi-Fi, but it isn't reliable. I had great cell phone service though, so I created my own hotspot. We didn't get any TV. Oh, well. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here while attending Merlefest. Lovely, quiet wooded park. Big rigs (we are 41 feet + tow vehicle) should unhook before going to sites as the road to the camping area is narrow, twisting and winding. #19 pull thru was only one adequate for our size rig, but we choose a long back in site closer to showers/restrooms. Firewood available for sale at the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Overall we had a good time. We had some issues at the newer bath house with water pressure, and some people had issues with having hot water. From experience, I think they have tank-less hot water tanks in that bath house. They can some times be tricky. The older bath house had wonderful water pressure though. The folks in the check-in office were so nice and helpful. They had life jackets and bike helmets you could use. The biggest issue we had was the amount of poison oak/ivy all around. What was growing up the trees looked like they had just tried to kill some of it, but hadn't died yet, still very green and obvious. There was tons on the ground all around our campsite though, with kids it was hard to make sure they were not in it. It felt crazy making them stay in the road. Don't go in the grass. So we had a large concern about tons of kids in the road with some traffic that would go way too fast. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was our first time at Fort Hamby. We stayed in site 12 which was very roomy. All the sites were well maintained. The bathrooms were updated and clean. Camping sites are down one road and the swim beach, park, and boat ramp are down another. Because the amenities are down another road it makes the camping area very quiet and peaceful. Sites are very well shaded. The roads are hilly which is why I left my bicycle at home, but the younger crowd enjoys that. Swim beach was clean, and there is a parking lot right next to it. There are some trails to the water and fishing was very popular. There is a Walmart, restaurants, and other shopping about 5 miles away. If you are coming from Wilkes, the Walmart is on the left before you get to the campground. The office sells ice and firewood, and you can borrow life jackets there, also. We enjoyed our stay and would camp there again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Huge sites, typical of COE campgrounds. Three sections: one near the new bathhouse, one hilly in the middle, and one near the water. Some sites have steep hill. We were in very large and level site 3 near the bathhouse, with shade and a nice wooded view. Other loops are a drive to get to bathhouse. It is about a mile (hilly) walk to the swim area. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites was good but the amenities were bad. All activities were a quarter mile away down another road. The bath house was still incomplete. It had, in our opinion, a good tent area and that's it. We will not be back. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This campground is undergoing development and I think it will be a great campground when it's completed. I hope they plan on a shower/bathroom facility but I didn't see any place for that. The spaces are set up for privacy but not isolation. The roads need improvement in some areas - big washout areas and I noticed a few fifth wheels that scraped when making a turn. The roads are steep in some areas. The swim beach is closed for improvements now but season is a few weeks away. The hiking trails are not marked which should be done. Overall a good park and it's only getting better. We camped here in a Motorhome.
