Good, not great. The staff is fantastic...very friendly and quick to assist. We had a nice conversation with the owner, and he has made quite a few improvements since he took over in 2010. However, there is still quite a bit of room to improve. The pool is very small and they offer day passes to non-campers, which causes it to be even more crowded. The water pressure was pretty low (site #2). The sites are small but offer some really nice shade and a woodsy 'rustic' feel. The lake is wonderful, with ample paddle boat rentals and decent fishing spots all around. But there's no swimming in the lake, which was a bit of a drag. There wasn't any trash pickup at the site and it was quite a walk to the dumpster. The playgrounds are small and run down. Overall it was fun if you like a more rustic experience but if you're used to a more 'upscale' feel this isn't the place. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We camped here with two other families, one in a tent and two of us in pop-ups. Let me start off with the friendliness of the office staff. They were very helpful by e-mail and on the phone in arranging our visit. We could not have been more pleased. Our sites were right on the lake, allowing us to bring a canoe and keep it on the bank. The lake is 12 acres and beautiful. Our only concern was the hill between our sites and the bank. It was steep and the stairs were in disrepair. We were a little nervous with the kids going up and down. The sites were gravel and elongated. This was fine with the pop-ups, but the gravel was rough for the tenters. Between the three sites, there was only one picnic table. When sharing this with the office, they brought another table to the site. Water and electric were fine. The pool was small, but ample. The kids enjoyed playing in it and it never seemed crowded. The office had food, tables, and games available. The pool table and air hockey were rustic, but free. The kids really enjoyed playing them. The weekend had numerous scheduled activities, but they were not posted, so participation was hit or miss. Overall, we had a wonderful time and would return. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Beautiful lake camping sites. Clean pool and friendly staff. Walk around the lake is quiet and serene. Fishing is great! One little lad caught a really good size large mouth bass! Wi-Fi does not work well down the hill. Our site was near the office and had great reception. As a pet friendly park, the staff needs to stress: "SCOOP THE WASTE!" Guess the dog walk area is the doggie bathroom where hardly anyone cleans up after their pets! Evening walks could be hazardous to your carpets. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Needed a place to stop over while traveling during Thanksgiving. Did not reach anyone in the office but took a chance since there were no other campgrounds in the area. Another camper met us at the office and assisted us in locating a site. Large pull through sites but somewhat unlevel. No problems with hook-ups. Long term guests as noted by others but no problems. Staff was very friendly the next morning and gave us better directions to reach our destination than our GPS had given. I'd stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was park that has seen better days. Water located on the opposite side of the site from the electric. And our electric box was badly corroded. Majority of sites were permanent "residents". The sites were big rig friendly with adequate room. A nice lake to walk by. Friendly hosts. A place to stay for a night or so. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park, our site was fairly unlevel. Area was clean. Had some permanent folks but that was not a problem. The only thing was the laundry room needed some cleaning and the dryers took forever!! We were only here for a stop over but would recommend. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The owners/operators of this campground are first-rate, friendly, helpful and honest. I'd give the campground a 10 except there is no cable TV and some sites are unlevel. The owners have made great improvements since our last visit a year ago, including upgrading the Wi-Fi and carrying more supplies in the campstore. The owners also went out of their way to make our club's visit a great one. I did not use the laundry or bath facilities, but I expect they were in clean based on the office condition. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Arrived late in the day after picking up our new 5th Wheel from a local dealer who recommended the site as being a good place to stay overnight to get used to the vehicle and check out everything was OK. The owners were not there but we were looked after well by two members of staff who helped us park up in a fairly tight site for our 40 ft 5th wheel. We had booked for the previous night but were a day late collecting the vehicle, they very kindly did not charge us for the missed night which we felt was very decent. The park looked to have plenty on offer with good bike and walking trails and well stocked lakes. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was our first time visiting this campground. We were not impressed at all. This campground is old and run down. Upon arrival we checked in, paid, and were told to pick a site. They have pull through sites but most are narrow if you have slides. We were told that new owners had bought the campground in October and changed the name to Paradise Lake Campground and Restaurant. The best thing that could happen here is a total redo of the sites, including the water/electric hookups (it was hard to tell what site the electric box was for, and most water was for two sites), sewer (ours was literally in the site and the cap was made like a plug and was hard to find), all the sites could use some grading and fresh gravel as little gravel was visible but plenty of mud to go around after the rains. We asked the lady working some questions about how far the sites went around the lake and her answer was "I don't know. I have only been here a month." She was very friendly though as was the owner we met. If the new owners make improvements this could be a very nice place but until then it would be OK for a stop over but very little else. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The restrooms and showers were clean, although the toilet bowls were stained (probably from the minerals in the water rather than poor housekeeping). The campground has a bit of a run-down or older look, though that could be due to the sandy/dusty roads. Pull-through sites are level enough, though close, and can accommodate larger rigs. Back-in sites seem smaller, mainly for 30-35 foot rigs. There seem to be more permanent/seasonal folks than there were last year. There are dog breed restrictions (including no Dobermans). There is also a territorial "attack" goose (named Henry) who may decide he doesn't like you or your rig. A hiking trail winds around the back and side of the lake. For the most part, it's a pleasant trail. There is one area that's been washed out and would be hard to get past for anyone who's not nimble. A designated pet-walk area is next to the lake, but there was no trash can nearby. I managed to pick up the Winston-Salem TV station with just an indoor antenna, so even though there's no cable, you can probably get a signal. I wouldn't stay here for any extended time, but for a quick stopover the campground is acceptable. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We were here after heavy rains, and the gravel and dirt roads were not in very good shape. This is an older campground near a lake. It has not been well maintained. There were a lot of permanent campers while we were here because of a power plant being constructed nearby. WiFi costs extra. There is a pool, miniature golf course, and play ground. Very clean restrooms. We probably would not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My husband worked in the area for 3 months, so we were parked here for 3 months. The restaurant is good but only has one employee and she is very over-worked. The owners have another business which is their "primary" business and it is a construction company. In the summer time there is 1 person working at the park and he is the owner's son. Lots of times he is not here at all. In the winter months he works for the construction company and no one is at the park. Campers come in and leave and they usually can't find a person to pay. The gal in the restaurant has to handle the campers when she is here. The park is run down but in a good location with lots of shade. The pool is a mess and no way would I swim in it. The water is well water which is not treated properly. Smelled like strong sulpher on most days. The laundry has 4 washers, 2 of which are sitting with brown water in them. One was broken 3 months ago and things are growing in the washer water. Maybe for an overnighter this park would be okay (if they could find someone to pay: no instructions on the door either for after hours). However, for the longer-term person, it's pretty sad. They had a land-line for internet but took it away when they moved the construction company into that building, so there is no internet hook up at all. The town of Danville has several sites for Wi-Fi though. If you are in a big rig, be very, very careful as several trees need to be cut in order to accommodate you. Pull throughs are difficult to get into and out of. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I chose this campground from the only other review posted here. Unfortunately that poster was either affiliated with this place or has very low standards. The best that can be said about the place is that it is quiet at night. From there it goes down hill. When we arrived our site trash can was over flowing. It was never emptied while we were there. The campground itself is rough, needs a great deal of TLC and has very small sites. This is the first place I've ever been where a tent would not fit on the site it was given. The pool was mirky such that we refrained from using it. What annoyed us the most was the ATVs. You think golf carts with kids on them are bad. Try ATVs with drunk grownups zooming by your site all day. We did enjoy the ducks and geese. That's not enough to bring us back though. We'll go elsewhere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park was very clean and neat. It had a lot of trees and a nice 18 acre lake with paddle boats and fishing. There was a restaurant and store on site. Overall nice place to stay. We camped here in a ?.
