Stayed here for it's closeness to Nags Head and OBX Marathon. What a great little campground. It is very open, absolutely no shade which mean it can get very hot in the summer. The only complaints I have about this park is some permanents let their dogs run loose allowing them to do their business anywhere. We had lots on our site when pulled in. That being said the manager cleaned it up right away. Secondly, the check in sign needs to be better. I see everyone looking for the office when coming in. Here's a hint: go right not straight once you turn into the park. The manager is the nicest person in the world. She runs a tight ship. Very helpful with what you want to see and do. The road and sites are hard packed gravel. You can back in or pull in to face the lake. This time of year the sun comes up further south therefore backing in is nicer, but that's my opinion. The lake is brackish water with no smell to it at all. Saw a small ray swimming along the shore. Cable was great, lots of channels. Wi-Fi was occasionally slow but great for a campground. A bit of a drive over the bridge to the amenities. Close to lots of interesting things to see and do. They have done an amazing job of cleaning up after Hurricane Irene. All hookups are within reach and in great working condition. I would definitely stay here again.
Have camped here several times before and that is why we came back. If you don't mind the scream of jets it's a great place. Stayed here for 6 nights. During the summer months I'm sure this place is packed. Lots to do for everyone. The interior roads are all paved. Checking in was easy and the staff very friendly. They let us choose the site we wanted and gave us the prices for all. Yes the premium sites are nice with there concrete slabs but is very open. Wi-Fi was the best we have experienced in a campground. Of course you are very close to all amenities. The staff upon check in give you a paper full of the great eating and shopping establishments. Maintenance staff continuously sprucing and cleaning the grounds and buildings. Also saw one of the staff testing the water supply. Never have seen that in a campground before. I would definitely stay here again.
I love this campground. The location is perfect it has a country feel but close enough to all amenities. We stayed 5 nights with no problems. The campground has an area for seasonals and an area for transients. Everyone was so friendly during our stay talking to us as we walked the park. All roads are paved. Sites are gravel some not as level as others but doable. All hookups in good location, no extensions needed. Can't comment on bathrooms or laundry facilities. Park very well manicured, grounds people cleaning up all the time with minimal impact on campers. This park can accommodate any size rig. Only negative is a price increase next season as I was told in order to keep undesirables out. Not sure what that meant. I would definitely stay here again.
Selected this campground for it's closeness to the highway. Not quite what I'm use to from a KOA. Park is set in a very country atmosphere. Firstly the roads to the park are very narrow and winding. Be prepared. Try to arrive during the daylight. The river is right beside the road so one wrong turn. The entrance road to the campground is steep and has numerous potholes. Road to office is very narrow with a sharp turn. Doable but go very slow. People are very friendly and helpful. Pull through site was somewhat short for a 40' coach with tow. Site was gravel with separation of hookups. Electrical at the rear, sewer in the middle, and water and cable at the front of the site. All reachable without extensions. Can't comment on the bathroom or laundry facilities. Wi-Fi worked great. Cable was fuzzy on most of the stations. The park has numerous gardens which I'm sure are beautiful in the summer. The river is fast flowing good for fishing and canoeing. Overall, okay campground. Could not accommodate anything larger than a 40' motorhome. Not sure if we would stay here again.
Overall good campground open all year (unusual for Ontario). Close to all major amenities and highways. We stayed for 3 weeks waiting to head south. All connections are at the back of site but within good reach. Gravel base to park both coach and tow. Can level with know problem. Water pressure a little low but doable. Laundry room very clean and tidy. Did not use the bathrooms so can't comment. Grass between each site with picnic table. Wi-Fi was good however a little slow at times. Campground appears to have lots of transient worker living here while Milton experiences a housing boom. The campground itself is neat and tidy. Not sure about the smell from the septic ponds.It was bad at times in the fall, I'm sure the summer would be terrible . Could hear highway 401 noise most of the time even with windows closed. Entrance to park well marked. Interior roads paved. All tree branches cut back so as not to hit coach. Park could accommodate any size motorhome. Check in was easy, people very friendly. I would stay here again.
Old state park campground which needs to be updated. At least with water at each site. Nice lake and beach. Lots of areas to hike and bike. Park kept clean. Bathrooms are very old. Okay if you don't want the amenities.
This campground is truly a dump. Interior roads are gravel and full of pot holes making them unsafe for driving. Broken down motorhomes everywhere. The office is on top of a hill very difficult walk. Once there your met by a pit bull. The whole place is very scary looking. We couldn't get out of there fast enough.
Overall a nice, small non-gated, family run campground. Stayed 3 nights. Easy access to campground, just off I-57. Very little traffic noise could be heard. Entrance road was nicely paved, while interior roads are gravel and free of potholes. Tree branches have been cut back to accommodate large rigs. Check-in was easy enough, able to change sites to allow a view of the lake. Personal escort to site was a nice touch. All sites are either pull-throughs or back-ins. They are spacious and level with a gravel base. Has a large grass area between sites. Most sites have partial shade to full sun. Sites and grounds are well maintained by resident owners. Campground host also available on site. All hook-ups are within reach of the coach, had good 30/50amp, sewer and water. Water is a little smelly. Lots of minerals, iron, and sulphur. Word of caution, use very little bath soap when showering or dish soap when doing dishes otherwise the suds will be exiting the coach(very soft water). Did not use the campground bathrooms or laundry facilities. Some sites face a well-stocked lake. Fishing licenses are not required. There is free WiFi available. All amenities, ie: Wal-Mart, Target, Meijers, and every eatery place you could imagine are within 10 minutes of the campground (turn left, turn left and your there). Generally the campground was very quiet with a nice walking/jogging path around lake. The owners were very helpful with directions into Champaign/Urbana. Great stopover campground for a week or less but definitely not a destination resort.
Overall nice park clean & very well manicured. However, quite pricey for what you get. A non heated pool in November is not fun. No Wi-Fi come on people its the 21st century. Wi-Fi is available in the nearby town at Miss Lucilles for free. Oh yes they forgot to tell us that the tram to the beach goes every 2 hours not every hour as posted. We were standing there waiting for awhile. Luckily a very nice ranger gave us a ride to the beach, which is quite a distance if your disabled. The park did a very nice Halloween display for the kids and anyone else that happened by. The bike trail along the road just outside the park is amazing (about 20 miles one way). It goes through all the little villages which are very scenic. All the camping site are quite spacious with some privacy and shade. All hookups are within reach. Nice level concrete pads with enough room for tow vehicle. Staff on the most part were quite friendly. New gated system needing key entry. If you are going to be later than 6pm call ahead otherwise you won't be able to get in (no guard on duty). Laundry facilities were adequate, clean and tide. I don't think I would stay here again, I prefer Grayton State Park just down the road.
The devastation that occurred from Hurricane Ivan is quite apparent but Alabama has not only done an amazing job to restore this park, they have made it much better. The new pier is absolutely amazing, lots of fishing going on. The construction of the pool, tennis courts, laundry facilities, and new check in station is all underway. They will be quite nice when complete (early summer 2010). All the sites are quite spacious with lots of room to back-in or pull-through. Every site now offers 30/50amp service with water and sewers (thank-you Hurricane Ivan). Wide variety of sites to choose from not many shade areas. Lake and canal sites are very nice, can be cooler in the fall/winter also its home for alligators. For those who caught fish, there is a very nice fish cleaning area near the entrance. State park golf course is great, challenging and flat with lots of wildlife around. The bike trails are like no other park I have been in, they are amazing. If your only thinking about taking bikes and don't, what a loss. Look for the resident alligator on the trails, I was lucky enough to see her babies (5). The Wi-Fi was not working when I was here so we went to the public library and they were more than happy to let us use theirs at no cost. We made a donation to the library at the end of our stay. Laundry facilities are not available in park yet but are available behind Bruno's grocery store on Hwy 59 not far from the park. Overall I love this park will definitely stay here again, next time hopefully a little longer.
Great campground all hookups within reach. Great water pressure and no problems with electrical. Good interior roads, easy in/out pull-throughs. Very quiet park even on weekends. Bathrooms & showers are spotless. Only drawback is having to leave after holidays are over but I guess that's not the parks fault
What can I say? The park is amazing and just keeps getting better. Arrived a day early of reservation, the campground sign said full,but park staff found us a great spot for one night. The volunteers are a fabulous bunch with great senses of humor. Park rangers & volunteers run the place like a well oiled motorhome.
We have camped here before, that's why we are back. This campground is great for everyone. The volunteers and park rangers are extremely friendly and helpful. The campground roads are paved and very easy to navigate. There are a variety of sites large to small but mostly shaded. Easy walk to the beach on paved sidewalk. Horses provided with mulch path to the beach. Pets allowed on beach Sept 16 to May 14. A very quiet and well maintained park. The Boardwalk and pier easily accessible. Restrooms and laundry areas are spotless. The hookups well within reach. We will definitely be back.
This was a first time to this campground. It is difficult to find a campground open in PA during winter months but this one is open all year. A very nice surprise. The people are very friendly and helpful. The location is easy to find but interior roads are slightly difficult to navigate. Roads are narrow, and pull-throughs are narrow. The WiFi worked great. They allow late check-outs.
This was our first time at this campground. While it would be easy to find in the daylight, it can be tricky at night. The people were extremely friendly. The roads are quite narrow to navigate. Garbage was left on our site from previous campers. The cable TV was terrible as there were got only a few stations and they were fuzzy. All hook-ups were within reach. Tree branches are not a problem.we did not use the restrooms or showers. It has a good WiFi connection. It is a little pricey for off season. (800) 628-2802
