What a great park! Nice and clean and FRIENDLY (Geneva State Park ought to hire some help who understand how to relate to the public). Due to a broken and jammed tow dolly ratchet making it impossible to drop our tow car, we were unable to follow our original plan to stay at Geneva State Park, where the surly girl at the office said if we left we could not have our payment refunded. Since my circumstances dictated that we would need a pull-thru site, we were forced to drive away. Located down the road just a few miles, Willow Lake gave us a very nice campsite not too far from the pretty little lake. Didn't use the Wi-Fi so can't comment on that. There is no cable TV, so the 5 PBS stations is all you can pick up. (Wish we traveled enough to warrant getting sat TV). Our kids are grown, but for those with little ones, there is a nice little playground area. The shower house is brand new and very attractive. We would definitely come back here again.
Pretty typical KOA: overpriced and crowded. Road are very narrow and inconsiderate knuckleheads parked all over the place. I suppose that families with younger kids would have a good time here, as they make a pretty big effort to cater to that demographic. This particular park seemed to have quite a number of perms, which I found surprising. There were also a number of tent campers. Our gravel site was reasonably level. The Wi-Fi was slow to the point of being worthless. The cable TV was very limited in the amount of channels offered. Definitely not worth the amount paid.
We love Topsail and come here every May, but they need to start fixing the place or folks will start going elsewhere. Many of the concrete pads are cracked and heaved. Our road, Weeping Willow, was in horrible condition. Severe flooding earlier this year destroyed the asphalt and they just dumped gravel over the mess. We had a stream of water running down the street the first two days we were there. But if you're a senior like us, the rate is hard to match. The swimming pool is nice and the trams will take you and your stuff to the beach (which was also severely eroded because the lake was breached from the flooding). So come on, guys. Fix the problems. Give us back our Topsail.
First of all, we could not find the office because it was in a strip mall on the main road. Then we could not locate our site. When we finally were guided to it, it was loose larger gravel. Our tow dolly basically has to plow through it when I backed into the site. Most of the units were perms and not in the greatest condition. Intersections all seems to have this vicious gully in them that scraped the bottom of most vehicles who passed through them. $30 was a ridiculous price for one night in a run-down trailer park.
This is a very pretty park. Even though we were given sites on "the hill," our site was almost perfectly level. The only drawback is that you have to park on the grass, so in the morning walking results in web shoes and grass cuttings being dragged back into the RV. The staff is very, very friendly. They do all they can to make your stay an enjoyable one. Cable TV was OK even though the number of available channels was limited. The Wi-Fi worked fine Thursday and Friday, but when the park became more filled on Saturday, it was impossible to hold an internet connection. Travelers Rest is like a small village: it has its own Fire Department. EMT's are nearby a able to respond quickly. There are tons of clubs for those staying long-term. The public building was huge. We had to share facilities with another club, but it all worked out. The nicest feature TR has is its golf course. It's only nine holes, but it appears to be well-kept. Maybe next year when we come back for our December rally, I'll bring my clubs.
This is a very clean, well-maintained park. The staff was very friendly and went well above and beyond what one might expect (helped me unload toad and move tow dolly). We stayed here with a club (The Challengers) and were given use of the clubhouse for cooking and other functions. The only reason I rated this park a 9 instead of a 10 was the highway noise (not terrible but definitely audible) and the not-so-level sites. We would camp here again with no hesitation.
This is a very nice clean newer campground. The sites are grass and a bit uneven, but not bad. Staff is helpful, friendly, and funny. I tracked quite a bit of sand into our RV, but I would stay here again.
This is probably the friendliest park we stayed in. The ground is very sandy so we dragged a lot of that into the RV. Sites are fairly level. The miniature golf course was in good condition (unlike several other RV parks we stayed in.) Our only problem was that our GPS unit could not find the place, but that's not the park's fault. We never saw the donkeys advertised on their website. Now I feel like an ass!
This is a very nice place to stay. The Delaware River is nearby, and the rural setting is quiet and restful.The staff is friendly with the exception of the younger girl who checked us in. Sites are grass, but we found a level area in ours with little effort. The place has a ridiculous number of speed bumps. Pets are supposed to be kept quiet but the owner's dogs could often be heard barking. There are a LOT of picnic tables which people keep moving around while you're out for the day, so we had to move them to get back into our campsite. My biggest negative would be that the gate will not work when the office is closed (5 PM), so you have to buy tokens for $1 each or you can't get in. It just seems like a really cheap thing to do. Why not just GIVE clients one token for every night they book? In spite of that, the place is well run and well organized, and we would stay here again.
Campsites were very uneven. The roads were kind of bumpy and the one-lane cowpath leading into the park was scary narrow. The cafeteria was only open for a brief period and served only wings and pizza (I think they have a few more items on the weekend). The miniature golf course was old and pretty much worn out. The stream behind us was pretty and the cows (seriously)walking through in the morning were neat. For the money, I would probably stay somewhere else next time.
We got off to a rough start when we arrived because there was an inconsiderate jerk in our site who was supposed to be long gone. He said he'd be gone in 20 minutes but he was still there two hours later. No matter. The office told us to use a different site which was actually nicer and more level. The sites were a bit uneven but we were able to get fairly level just through trial and error. Parking is all on grass. Facilities were fine. Staff is very friendly and helpful. I would stay here again.
This was a very nice surprise. We were running very late so we cancelled our reservation at another campground and found this one through the Good Sam website. I did not give it a 10 only because of its proximity to I-95 and the noise from the highway. We kept our AC fan on all night and slept great. The gravel pads were well maintained and fairly level. We would definitely stay here again.
Sites were uneven and sandy in spots. Out road had a big wet bog-hole in the middle of it. There was no cable (and most available and station were so far away that most shows were heavily pixilated) and the Wi-Fi was so weak we couldn't access it. It is nice and close to I-95 without most of the noise. It's OK for an overnight.
This is a very pretty campground with concrete pads surround by nice green thick grass. Everything looks to be in excellent condition, not worn out like some campgrounds. The only knock I would have is that the Wi-Fi was not working when I tried to use it. Since we have a mobile Hot Spot, it was no big deal for us, but it might be for someone else.
