We have camped at Tall Pines for a couple of years now. They are always making improvements to the campground. They have great activities planned for children and adults. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The management has good control on the security of the campground. Has a nice water view, paved and stoned roads, new store and spacious campsites. We will continue to camp here!
I have been going to Cherrystone for over 20 years and have some very good memories, but in the last 4 to 5 years the quality of this campground has gone down. There seems to be very poor management and a lot of teenage personnel that does not care about anything, especially the quality of the campground. Just a few years ago, Cherrystone had a good security patrol that policed the campground regularly on golf carts. They made sure the the campgrounds rules were up-held so everyone could enjoy their stay. Now there is no security, which leads to a lot of teenage mischief and destruction. In just the last few years I have had my trailer broken into and set on fire, though it did minimal damage, it didn't seem to concern the management. July 2011 we had 3 families of campers to enjoy a week at Cherrystone but the second night our campsites along with many others were stolen from. The response from management was poor and one of their comments was, "If you don't like the way this campground is run you may leave." Then, once again my coolers were broken into before I left. If you would like to camp at Cherrystone, be sure to take everything into your camper and lock up tight, if you want to keep what's yours. We will not be back until they bring security back!!
