Another example of a nice COE campground. Only a small section had full hookups, but there were plenty of sites with water and electric. It was a quiet, pleasant 4 night stay. We had a partially shaded site and plenty of areas for walking. We watched a doe and her young twins grazing in the field behind our site. Dumpsters available only at the entrance/exit was inconvenient.
Price reflects senior pass. What a great campground! Sites ranged from nicely spaced to really large. Hiking trails were great, some paved, some not. Most sites had shade during some part of the day. Quiet, only the occasional distant train. Loop C appeared to be the nicest but reservations for that section weren't available on short notice. The only reason we rated an 8 instead of a 9 was because the sites in Loop B were set up so the RVs face each other.
A significant number of sites appeared to be occupied by permanent residents. They seemed oblivious to campground etiquette and management was not responsive to issues. The trains were a nightmare. We happen to like trains, but the crossing is just down the road a bit and east bound trains start blasting their horns just as they pull alongside the first row of RVs. No air conditioning could cover the sounds jolting us awake. In one 24 hour period, 30 trains were counted. We would not stay here again.
The park itself is nice, large, lots of amenities, has some really nice sites and some mediocre. The staff could use improvement. The restrooms, showers and laundry at "Fort Wilderness" didn't appear to receive any real cleaning. The same trash on the floors was in the same places after a week stay, and the trash left in showers remained as well. Mowers were run facing rigs a foot away without thought to causing damage. The rental units are filthy on the outside. With the proper care, this place could be a great place to visit.
