We think it would be an ok CG if your using it as a base camp or staying 2/3 days. There are some permanent sites that look shabby but the price is very reasonable for a full hook up CG in this area. There are some W/E sites that back up to a creek (ses pool) that are shaded, but most of the full H/U sites are in a field (this is where we were). We did find our site to be less buggy than the shaded ones, and our A/C did ok cooling the 5er even with the extra sun. They have 2 swimming pools (the outdoor pool was being painted). Some of the buildings needed a decent paint and the grass needed cut especially on some full permanent sites. The staff seemed friendly and willing to address some concerns we had regarding the swimming pool.
We stayed at this CG over Memorial Day weekend. The CG is clean and the staff was nice. They delivered fire wood to your campsite for you. The pool was heated and clean, but there were no staff present to regulate the roudy kids, instead they just posted signs and left any dicipline up to the parents (which did not happen). They had rolling blackouts during our stay, (it was 90 degrees). This surprised us since this CG is not that old. They have no mature trees to provide any shade. The trains were noticable but not a hindrance since we didn't have a site that was right next to the tracks. The dump station was placed in a poor location. Most of the people we saw using it, ran over the curb trying to get out. The staff did recognize this problem and advised folks with larger units to dump at full hook up camp sites. This campground could get some really high ratings if they address some of these issues.
This was are second time visiting this campground in two years. It is kid friendly with a nice playground. The campground also has an alligator pond, beach with a wading area, boat landing and dock. We saw plenty of deer and other wildlife also. They just started allowing pets in the camping area. We will be back next year.
This is a very clean rv "resort". I wouldn't call it a campground because of the lack of ground campfires and not having any playground equipment "except shuffle board and a basketball hoop". Besides the beach and pool there was a lack of entertainment for our 2 year old granddaughter. I would recommend Topsail, however we found that St. Andrews suited us better. We stayed in site #6, and had no shade or privacy. I would recommend any of the other loops though.
We picked this campground after reading the posts about the train noise and the fact that we have a pop-up when we made the reservations. We ended up staying here in a new Hybrid. The campground is nice, it has plenty of shade, a nice pool and a book exchange. Most sites are pull through but have very little vegitation for privacy. We were very pleased and will return if in the area again.
This is a nice looking place but they do nickle and dime you to death. There prices are just as high as the Brookville KOA now. They charge for visitors (even if the visitors don't use any amenities). I was here with a group in May and found the campground to have alot of full timers and camp hosts that watch your every move.
You can't beat this camp ground for the price. There is access to 2 miles of beach and a great fishing pier. I saw plenty of 40 foot MHs there. The staff was friendly. The bathhouses and laundry facility were dated but clean. If you plan on saving your $$ for going to the strip, this is the place. They do not have sewer hook ups, just a dump station.
