You'll have to drive 11 miles from I-20 to get here, but it's worth the drive. Our pull-through was 90 feet long! A huge area and just steps from the lake. We only stayed one night on our way to Texas, but we will stay here again and try to get space 47 (first come-first serve) since it is 100 feet long, a back-in which would give us an excellent view of the lake from our living room. Our antenna picked up the local channels with excellent reception. Our AT&T air card also worked well.
We are Escapees and this was our first visit here. They were having a Bluegrass Jam Session which we thoroughly enjoyed. Friendly RVers, nice pool (it was very hot so the pool was great). We had a pull-through which very close to our neighbors. With their slide awnings out, we were unable to extend our awning completely. Cable was very fuzzy, but watchable. It cost $1 extra/day. We did not use their Wi-Fi as it cost $3/day and our AT&T air card had great reception. Close to Knoxville and great BBQ.
This was a beautiful park. We needed a campground close to Warren Wilson College where our nephew attends. It was 3 miles away. It's about 3/4 miles off I-40, but was very quiet. There are a lot of hills in the park, but once my husband finished freaking out about climbing the hill to our site, we settled down and enjoyed the view. The young man who registered us escorted us to our back-in site and was excellent at directing us into the site. My husband was very impressed. We would definitely return here. We received a 10% Good Sam discount. They also accept AAA.
When we arrived they were very busy. The young man who registered us sent us to a pull-through FHU. We had to go a long way and up a hill and when we finally arrived didn't feel safe pulling into the site. Our pick-up would have to be parked pointing downhill. I called the manager from the site and asked for a pull-through with W&E only and were sent to that section. Once we arrived back at the office (it's a long trip!) someone was waiting outside with our new receipt which was nice, as there was still a line inside. Only complaint was that they didn't escort us to the site. Also, the 50 amp didn't work and we had to use our 30 amp adapter. It was quiet and clean and we would return if we can afford $38/night again!
Six miles off the interstate and we had to stop and ask for instructions. Kind of tight getting to our campsite. Our 5th wheel is 39 feet long. Once we got to the site though it was pretty nice. Some seasonals but they kept their sites beautifully landscaped. Cable reception was good. Quiet that night. Again, it was just a little scary getting in and out because of the length of our rig, but the space we stayed in was excellent, everything worked.
Pretty sure we were the only transient. It caters to seasonals. Most sights not very well maintained. Our water was so dirty that we had to use a second filter! Trees and power lines were so low we were afraid we wouldn't be able to get out without damaging our rig.
We enjoyed our 2+ months here. We are full-time RVers and needed a base from which to visit our children/grandchildren for the summer. Field & Stream was the best location for the money. It was a beautiful, quiet, and pristine park in a wooded setting near Lake Potanipo. The owners were very attentive, helpful and accessible. The seasonal campers were very friendly and their sites well maintained and landscaped. Pull-throughs were large enough for big rigs. Though it caters to the mature RVer, our grand kids visited a couple of times and used the playground and explored the little brook. The owners hosted a Labor Day cookout which we enjoyed. They also have a July 4th cookout. The only reason it doesn't rate a 10 is there was no swimming area. We will stay here again.
