I have reviewed this resort several times and have always given it a 10 rating. Again, I say this is one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever stayed in. My only complaint of which I will not mark them down for but again it's a complaint nonetheless. They advertise Wi-Fi but a person certainly can't claim it's a usable Wi-Fi. We were on a lakefront site and I could not use my laptop at all. I just wish they wouldn't show sites on their map that say "Wi-Fi works well on this site" because it simply isn't true. I can live without Wi-Fi but if you advertise it, it should work and work well. After all, I'm sure the nightly site fee reflects a charge for the amenity. WillowTree, if that's the best your area can offer, why pay for it and give that company money for nothing.
From check-in to check-out, you are made to feel like your patronage matters. We received our KOA discount easily, no questions asked. We were given a packet of information about the campground and the Wilmington area. Excellent job! Our site was full hook-ups with 50amp, cable and free wi-fi which was very high speed from our site #29. It is a long level pull-through with grass. This campground accommodates RV'ers with dogs. They have a "dog park" that is separated into 3 different areas. Exercise equipment for the dogs, seating for dog owners and waste pick-up bags to dispose of "pet droppings". A great feature in a campground as it allows our pet to be loose but in a confined safe environment under our supervision. We could not find a negative thing about this KOA and have plans to return next year at this same time. Nice job Wilmington KOA!
I'm not sure how to rate this campground. It's not a bad campground at all but it just seems like it's not polished off. I saw "workers" riding around alot in golf carts but I never saw them doing any work. The sites are very, very close and we had to park our truck in an auxiliary parking area because there wasn't enough room on our site which I feel is a design flaw. Ours was not the only one either. Several larger rigs were at the very edge of their site front and back and the roads although asphalt were very narrow at best. You had to be very careful driving down the roads. Upon check-in, we were greeted by a very pleasant older lady while a younger man sat behind the counter stuffing a sandwich in his face; what can I say to that; it speaks for itself. Tacky!! Even though it's very close to area attractions, I'd be hard pressed to return simply because the sites are so narrow. Friends of ours put their three slides out on the road side of their 5th wheel and it intruded into the neighbors site quite a bit. I would have been most unhappy had I been that camper. I did not use the Wi-Fi but they have very strict terms if you do use it. Cable was probably satellite due to the fact it only had 12 channels - total. Just know that if you have a large rig with 2 or more slides, or are camping next to one with multiple slides, the sites are tight.
We were a little skeptical about going to this campground in the dead of summer. Although the campground was very busy (full for the weekend) it was very quiet at night. At first sight, it looks like the sites are very close together but actually the way the sites are laid out, you have quite a nice roomy site with concrete pads and patios. All sites are full hook-ups with cable, Wi-Fi (we didn't use) and 50 amp electric. This campground is close to all Williamsburg attractions. Check-in went very smooth and we were given fresh baked Spunkmeyer chocolate chip cookies which were wonderful and offered such a sense of hospitality. This is a very attractive campground and I would highly recommend staying here. Job well done American Heritage!!! P.S. Let me say 2 of the 4 reservations we made together were moved around to our dissatisfaction. When I brought this to their attention when we were the first to arrive a day earlier then the rest of our party, they quickly made it right so our entire group could be together. Top Notch Guys!
We stayed here many years ago when it was a KOA. It is no longer a KOA, thank goodness. This campground has greatly improved. We were very impressed with the owners and the upgraded appearance of the park. The Wi-Fi is outstanding and the satellite TV is sufficient. We had one of the 50 amp pull-throughs close to the office and were very pleased with our site. We checked in on Memorial Day Monday for 2 nights and they had a band that first night and we were close enough we could sit in our RV and enjoy the music. Nice touch Shenandoah Valley Family! WOW has this place changed, I would highly recommend a stay here, it is quiet and peaceful. Kudos to the owners on a job well done!
I want to love this campground. It's very tranquil and full of lovely plants and trees that surround a pond. The sites in front of the bathhouse and around the pond are beautiful. DON'T go behind the bathhouse or accept a site in the back. It's full of permanent campers that are questionable at best. The website is somewhat deceiving. #1. There is no cable/satellite TV. #2. There is Wi-Fi but you won't get it unless you pay $5.00 per day. Their rates are very reasonable but $5 for Wi-Fi? It was very quiet and we enjoyed our stay. The owner was very friendly/helpful. Overall, I did love this campground at least the front section which is where we stayed.
OK for an over nighter. VERY noisy and busy. As stated above, the campground seems to be an after thought to the store/marina. Lots of rules on the campground brochure but they are not enforced. Lots of young people who want to rip and race their cars/trucks through the campground. I guess we old people (55) are suppose to be impressed! Dogs are allowed to roam loose and their "droppings" are wherever they roam. Would not recommend and certainly wouldn't revisit this campground. I honestly think it's a "locals" haunt.
Stayed one night enroute from Texas back to Virginia. What a pleasant surprise. As stated above it is behind a Hotel which posed absolutely NO problems. It is close to I-10, hence hwy traffic noise but you know that is going to be the case before you ever check in. With a/c on, noise wasn't an issue. The owners were super friendly and helpful. This is the first campground/camp resort we have ever stayed at that you received premium movie channels on cable or satellite tv. Wi-Fi worked fine on our site. I would highly recommend this campground. Very nice job Frog City RV park!!
Just be aware that a Federal Express shipping/loading facility is right next door and they load all night. Noise was a factor for us even though we did run our air. It's off of a main roadway with lots of road noise. Also, there was a train fairly close by that ran throughout the night and an occasional airplane. It had it all. Overall not a bad park for an overnighter just very noisy and lots of permanent campers.
OUTSTANDING, SUPERB!! Fantastic sunsets over LBJ Lake. Check-in staff extremely friendly and helpful. We were staying a week and visiting friends in the area, the campground staff gave us a reduced fee to allow our friends unlimited access to the campground which was very generous of them. The owners of this campground take great pride in the appearance and maintenace of their park. Very well priced for what you get. We are from the east coast where campground fees are among the highest in the country. If this campground had been along the east coast it would have easily been $50 or more per night. All concrete/asphalt pads and patios. The roads within the campground were asphalt, manicured lawns on each site and gorgeous views. Very good wi-fi (free). Although they did not have cable and local channels are very limited, I still give this campground a BIG 10!! Excellent job Sunset Point!
We arrived at 12noon and the office was closed until 2pm which we found odd, seeing as staff was standing nearby just watching us. We registered at the forms left outside and chose a site from several they had listed as available. We didn't get a warm and fuzzy feeling upon check-in. This KOA is like so many, just ample! They did have long pull through sites if you don't want to unhook. The sites to the right of the office appear to be permanent long timers which is quite recognizable due to "junk" all around their sites. Rules state no dogs unleashed yet one is one site away from us and free to roam where he pleases. And may I add, do "his business" where he pleases. Wi-fi was fairly good, but there is no cable. An ok stop-over but definitely not a destination campground. What has happened to so many of the KOA's? They use to be reliable and steadfast in their appearance and amenities. We find them to be some of the worst campgrounds. Their motto seems to be "anything goes". In stead of the staff standing around appearing to be taking it easy, get out there and:
#1 treat your fire ant problem, which is huge!
#2 take pride in your campground not just the entrance.
#3 Whether you are on your lunch break or not, make your clientele feel welcomed, personally registering them!
You could have a very nice campground with just a little effort!
Stayed here overnight enroute to Texas. Although it was very close to Opryland and right next door to Camping World, I thought the rates were excessive. We are from the east coast where rates are among the highest in the country and this campground definitely did not offer $45.00 worth of amenities. Our sewer was very far from our outlet and was difficult to drain without constantly lifting the hose to drain. No electrical breaker on the electric box. The campground seems old and in need of updating. In addition, they had received a lot of rain and our site was one large mud hole. When we unhooked our RV, the truck was parked in a very large ponding of water/mud. The concrete patios were raised 2" or more above grade and this posed a potential danger to the elderly or handicapped. We would stay again but would not recommend it as a destination spot. The staff were very friendly and wi-fi was sufficient. No cable which we found difficult to understand as it was not rurally located but near very busy areas. Horrible interior roads!! Wake up Two Rivers, you have Yogi Bear Jellystone on one side of you and KOA on the other side. Improvements badly needed!
What can I add that the other reviews haven't already said? This is a small and quaint campground but wow does it pack a punch! The owners are extremely pleasant even taking you to your site and helping you level up. Then the wife/owner stopped by not more than 5 min's later and ask if everything was to our satisfaction and offered us a free local newspaper. The landscaping is superb and as stated in a previous review the owners take pride in their campground and it certainly shows. It is dimly lit at night which is outstanding; no harsh lights shining in your RV all night. Their sign says they cater to adults which was very appealing to us. Very quiet at night. The RV next to us left at 6:00pm the evening we pulled in and within 10mins of their departure I believe it might have been the owner/husband was right there cleaning the site for the next camper, now that's impressive. Let me also mention, excellent cable with a large number of channels. The FREE Wi-Fi was superb and very high speed. JOB WELL DONE ROCKY TOP!!!
This is my second review of this campground. I can not compliment the owners enough on their wonderful campground. This husband and wife team are constantly on the move to improve and maintain their "little piece of heaven". First off, they are friendly and make you feel like they truly value your patronage. They provide 50 amp service, full hook-up sites with plenty of breathing space, long pull-thrus, a lush green space for everyone to enjoy and a beautifully landscaped open-air pavilion. There is not a great deal of activities to keep children occupied, so do think about that when deciding whether to stay or not. We particularly love it here because of that very reason. It's quiet, no cable (which enables us to get rid of that TV for a week) and we absolutely love everything about this campground. When I think of peaceful RVing, I think of Country Waye. We come here every year at "apple time". Job well done Owners !! THANK YOU very much: your devotion, dedication and hard work shows and we appreciate it!
In reading a review from June 2007, a reviewer wrote they had visited this resort, fell in love with the Sandbridge area and purchased site #47 while there. Well, the majority of these sites are occupied by park models which are extremely well maintained and the sites are beautifully landscaped (with NO JUNK) visible around any sites. I digress, back to my first sentence. We chose site #47 to camp on and let me say, "it was pure heaven". Ok, more to the point, I'm green with envy. This is a gorgeous resort where you purchase your lot and either stay on it permanently with a park model/your own RV or rent your lot when you're not here. We backed right up to Back Bay with a very large lawn (yes I said lawn), double concrete pad which accommodated 2 vehicles side by side and of course, your RV. Views were awesome with a constant breeze but not so much you couldn't keep your awning out. Wi-Fi is mainly at the office lounge, although maybe if you were closer to the office you could get it at your site, we could not but this was absolutely not a problem. They do have excellent cable TV service, 50amp service and paved roads although they are somewhat narrow. The turn around at the very end of the resort was an extremely tight turn around and I didn't think we could pull it off with a 36' travel trailer and 4 door pick up truck but with help from a permanent camper we just got it turned around. It was rough going. If the owner of site #47 reads this review and ever entertains the thought of selling, please write it here in a review so I will know. We would certainly give it serious consideration. Highly recommend this resort and that's saying a mouthful because we normally don't care at all for a campground with mostly permanent sites. THIS IS THE EXCEPTION!!
This camp resort is located on both sides of hwy 12. The major part of the campground is located on the ocean side. A small section is located on the sound side which is where we stay. I would recommend this area for those who desire a quiet stay with gorgeous sunsets (as sun sets over the Pamlico Sound). The only amenities on this side include an immaculate bathhouse and laundry. All sites are concrete back-ins with 50 amp service, sewer, water and cable. The premium sites back up to the sound and the views are quite stunning. There's a common gathering area with benches for sunset watching or like us just sit back in your recliner and watch from your back full view window. There seems to be minimal children in this area as well. Of course to use the campgrounds many amenities you must cross hwy 12 to enter main part of campground. If the use of those amenities is not an issue for you, the sound side is ideal! Sites are roomy and roads are all paved asphalt. We had no need to try Wi-Fi but now own a laptop so we'll try it out with our next visit. Even though prices are steep, we feel the expense is justified by the quiet, less crowded, nicely maintained camp resort. Give it a try!
We camped on site #711 which is one of their premium (if not the BEST site) 50amp sites. The site was very long, private on the waterfront side with sweeping views of the bay. We choose to stay at this camp resort in early spring or in the fall, both of which children are in school. It's relatively quiet during these times and much more enjoyable. We have not encountered any problems with walking our dog around the campground as others have mentioned. We stay on the gravel roads and ALWAYS carry baggies for cleaning up dog waste in the event she doesn't make it to the dog run area. I really believe if you keep a positive attitude and abide by the rules set forth for everyone, you'll have a positive outcome. Happy Camping Everyone.
We stayed here one night enroute to Myrtle Beach, SC. We chose one of their premium sites and were escorted there by the owner. Very pleasant gentleman and the ladies in the office were very friendly. The entrance to the campground is beautiful. Our premium site was first rate, long gravel pad with a large concrete patio which included wrought iron table and chairs and a chimenea. Privacy panels are at one end of the patio along with nice shrubbery. 50 amp service, cable TV and very comfortable surroundings. One feature that was especially nice was a large fenced in dog run which included chairs for pet owners to sit in while their pets enjoyed themselves. They also had "dog waste" baggies available as well as balls and throw toys. What a great feature for those of us with "active" pets. We would definitely stay again. Job well done, Fayetteville KOA!
Traveling on Columbus Day, we were forced to stay here overnight on our way home. This campground is a "locals" hot spot for a weekend get away. The mgmt was not thrilled to give away his "last spot", and we weren't thrilled to be the ones to get it. The campground was scruffy to say the least. What angered us the most was the $58 fee charged to stay in this "DUMP". Mgmt acted like he was offering us his last 5 star accommodations. If there had been any other campground available, believe me we would not have stayed here. There was a very large branch dangling right over top of our trailer and it was fairly breezy throughout the night. We just prayed it wouldn't snap, otherwise we would have sustained damage to our RV. My husband went up on the roof and tried to grab hold but it was out of his reach. Needless to say, this is definitely for "locals" only. BEWARE!
This is a well thought out camp resort located off the beaten path of Myrtle Beach. For those wanting a quiet, peaceful, scenic campground with large concrete pads, this is the place. - Full hook-ups - 50 amp electric - Long pull-thrus - Large areas of grass on each site - Lakefront sites - Hot tubs on some lakefront sites - Asphalt walking path around LARGE lake - No cable (not a problem for us) - Beautiful pool and surrounding area - Nice office/store - Pleasant staff - WIFI (website lists the sites with best reception) - Pet Friendly - NO TENTS Highly recommend for those seeking a more up-scale RVing experience without the high price and sometime frequent aloofness.
We stayed overnight enroute to Canaan Valley, WV. The entrance to the campground was lovely but very misleading. The campground itself was not at all appealing. There were a lot of "regulars"; campers that perhaps live fairly close by that spend their weekends at this campground or it appears this way. They were a rough and routy group. During the overnight hours there was drinking, cursing, screaming that sounded threatening and very loud partying that went on well into the night. We felt very unsafe and needless to say didn't get much sleep during the night. The sun had hardly risen when we packed up and were on our way. We will never use this campground again or recommend it to others.
This is one of our favorite campgrounds in the valley. We come in the fall when it's "apple time". This campground is small and quaint with lush green manicured sites. The views of the mountains are breath-taking especially after a rain shower when a rainbow stretched from one peak to another. I would not recommend this campground if you have children as there is very little to keep them entertained (which is why we love it so much). It's quiet, peaceful and just downright relaxing. They do not have cable which for some is extremely important but for us not a problem at all. We take this time to catch up on reading and just getting away. We don't use the restroom facilities so I can't comment on them. Just the beauty of the campground is reason enough to visit this gem tucked away between the mountains.
Stayed at this campground one night before returning home after purchasing a new RV that day. It was 20 degrees upon departing the following morning. In our hurry to pack up to leave we forgot our dog's lead with all her tags. After arriving home I received a call from the manager of the campground stating someone had turned the lead into the office. They offered to mail it back to us with postage paid. Now I thought that was most considerate and generous. This is just one small detail that makes the Fredericksburg KOA a must stay.
