We stayed here first in 1994. New owners 6 years ago. Pros: Level sites, all gravel. Some shade sites. Beautiful view of the farms in the valley. Quiet. Cons: Rules. Every where you turn there are rules. Granted rules are good but too many, whoa! like only one bag of trash per day allowed. I can see no parking on grass, but not even a welcome mat? I would call this a pet allowed park, not pet friendly. If your dog barks even once you are on your way out per the written rules. Even though you have WiFi it apparently isn't turned on til after 8:00am. We tried every morning but couldn't get on until right after 8:00 am. Cable TV is free with on 25 channels and the reception is not that great. Bathrooms are clean but have seen better days. $41 is a lot for this park. No discounts unless you stay a week, then one free day.
This is truly the best park we have been in during the 3 months we have been out traveling. Probably the best we have ever seen in all our years camping. We were the only slide in camper in the park. Kind of felt we were the poor folks! The sites are perfect and spacious. The park is extremely well maintained. There was some ever present road noise but tolerable. The only reason it didn't my 10 was the price. All of the sites in the park are owned by people. When the site is rented like someone like us the site owner gets half. They also have many rules, such as I was welcome in my truck camper, but we couldn't drop it to tour the island, it had to stay on the truck, what's with that? Also you are not welcome if you have a pop up camper. One other thing even at this swank facility, they clean the bathrooms in the morning around 7:00 a.m. When will campground owners realize this is the time when most restrooms get heavy use! We took one of the inside sites (#66) and got a nice breeze for $54 plus tax. The waterfront sites only overlook the boats at the marina and in my estimation don't warrant the extra $10.
Stayed here for one night. Definitely in the woods and the swamp. Pros: All the bells and whistles, WI-FI (free), cable (many channels). Definitely quiet except for the sirens at night. The charming woman in the office was great. Sites are level. Very little light at night. Price right. Cons: Roads are tight with trees very close. Glad we had a truck camper. The campground is complete tree covered and surrounded by what I call a swamp. It was 80 or so and so many mosquito's (in October) we couldn't sit out and enjoy the sun. The internet wasn't that great, couldn't post photos on Facebook. Laundry was $2 to wash and $1.50 to dry.
Really a great little park. First the cons: hard to really find something bad to say, but the bathrooms and showers are in the middle of being renovated and look a little rough, but clean none the less. The lower loop is almost all grass sites and the one we were on was on a hill forcing us to park sideways. The pros: Great folks on the staff. There is a couple from CO running the park for the bank. Very accommodating folks. Good Wi-Fi reception from where we were. Very little road noise even though it's next to a road. They still serve the free Saturday morning breakfast: pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, coffee and juice. The price was with no discounts.
Nice park as you roll in. It is laid out very well with gravel roads and sites. Cons: Only one shower, two toilets and one lavatory per gender. Located in same building as office. No doors on stalls only curtains. Being NC they smoke in the office and it drifts into the bath area, nasty. The office/bathrooms are at the entrance to the park, meaning quite a hike for most. The WiFi was sporadic probably too many users at once. Road noise from I-74 but it was cool and we had windows closed. No laundry although they have one all built but not inspected by the State yet. Pros: Price was great for what you got. Well maintained park. Sites level. Water and electric close and on proper side. They are constantly working on the park. Staff super friendly and very talkative. We stayed 2 nights and toured Mt. Aity (Mayberry). Great cable TV reception. Would stay here again.
Nice campground, the owner comes and goes, not worried about anything. Sites looked not too level but we had no problem. Restrooms and showers are clean. WiFi at site was awesome and the cable TV was very clear. We paid $27.50. He usually charges $27, gave us a 10% discount, but had to charge a 5% sales tax and 5% transient tax, nasty and he doesn't like it. Train whistle in the distance. What you should expect when you're in coal country. All in all I'd spend more time here. P.S. They lock the restrooms and laundry but the keys are in a box at the entrance to the office. Also, the owner likes to talk and carve: he's amazing!!
Well maintained park. Most all the sites are pull thru. Roads and sites are very level gravel. There is a nice little room with some exercise equipment that we took advantage of. We were down at the farthest end of park and got great Wi-Fi reception. Pretty much all the sites are unshaded, but we were here just as the weather changed for the cooler. The No sun bright street lights but you feel very safe and secure. The only drawback are the ever present trains...but we are OK with them by now.
I don't know what those folks are talking about in the other reviews about not big rig friendly. I saw many big rigs come and go with ease. Sites are very level. Wi-Fi is great at site and cable with many channels. We stayed from Mon. thru Fri. Quiet at night, staff very friendly and helpful. Swimming pool was excellent, very clean. Sites are close but not too close.
Nice park at $18.90 per night in weekend with AAA discount. Sites are gravel and very level. Bathrooms and showers are clean, but why don't they realize you don't clean restrooms at 8 am! This is the most busy time of the day, duh! It was a nice quiet park until the trains started up around 7pm which was around the same time the stock car races started! The races ran until 11pm and the trains all night, about 2 every hour. But all through the mid west it was hard to escape trains.
Found this park on this review site. Was a little concerned when I read a review talking about security and as we we driving through town to the casino, but it was awesome. The sites are all concrete, nice lawns and the park is very clean. The price is awesome and if there are a few discounts. You feel very safe, security all night.
When we first pulled in we thought OMG tight, but not at all. We paid for one night then decided the next day to stay for two more. Nice level concrete pads. super clean facilities. Great laundry, new machines. The staff was excellent. Helpful without being constantly right next to you. If some of you had a bad experience here a couple of years ago it is under new management. The Wi-Fi was fast, never had a problem. We have put this in our log book as five star.
About two miles off main road. Very nice area right along the stream. Most all sites are grass and we got there after rain the night before so it was a little soft. The park is mainly geared towards tubing down the stream and horseback riding, camping secondary. They charge a fee to get in then a camping price, $29.28. A little hefty for what we wanted. The bathrooms have seen much use, but are as clean as they can be. We were the only folks in this part of the campground. Extremely dark and quiet! The staff extremely nice and friendly.
