The property that this campground sits on is beautiful and has such great potential. But the campground is just average. Our site was level and hookups were easily accessible. They have sites on a small stream but the hookups are on the wrong side unless you pull a motorhome in. Overall the RV sites need a little TLC. The pool was a little aged but clean. There is a nice lake to fish on and there are some strenuous hiking trails on campground property. It is certainly convenient to the many activities in the Brevard area. If we came back, we would probably stay here again because there is not much else to choose from.

This campground does not offer much in the way of amenities, but there are few camping choices in this area. It is clean and quiet. I visit the Concord area quite often and have usually stayed at the Camping Racing Resort which is nothing more than a gravel parking lot with scarce offerings of shade. I will definitely stay here from now on. Our site was nicely shaded, respectably level, and had a concrete patio pad. The only complaint I had with our site was the location of the utilities. Power was in a convenient location but water was on the wrong side of the site, in a submerged irrigation system tub, and the sewer connection was so far back to the rear of the site I had to back up when we were ready to leave to dump the tanks. I will definitely stay here again when in the area.

We absolutely loved this campground. Our site was paved with a concrete patio, level, and shady. Even though our site was not directly on the lake, we still had a nice view (Site 49). The park staff was friendly. We liked being able to choose swimming in either the lake or the pool. The cafe food was good and reasonably priced. Wi-Fi was acceptable. Our only complaint would be the road noise from I-295. It wasn't unbearable where we were, but we did notice it when sitting outside. We will definitely camp here again.

We used this campground as an overnight stop on our way to Florida. It is an older park that needs some work. Nothing special thus my rating. We really did not take advantage of any amenities because we were here only for one night. We did walk the campground and trekked down to the river. They have a nice dock that extends out and it seems like a good place to fish. The tide was out when we were here. As somebody else mentioned, the cable TV was fuzzy. We did not have any other issues and found the park to be extremely quiet at night. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

It was expensive to stay in Club Castaways over Labor Day weekend, but well worth the money. The sites are spaced out enough so you are not on top of your neighbor, they are paved and level, and there are bath houses and a pool that only Club Castaways residents can use. There were never more than 8 people in the pool when we went and even though it was booked heavily for the weekend, the entire Club Castaways area was quiet. We were fortunate/unfortunate to be there during Hurricane Earle (a big non-event) and joined a hurricane party at one of their bars. They also have a Tiki bar on their beach which had karaoke or live entertainment most nights. Their store is well stocked and even has a little restaurant that has quite the varied menu. We enjoyed a pancake breakfast one morning and a fantastic sunrise every morning. It was also very cool to see the wild ponies on Assateague Island right across the bay romping and carrying on in the water. Of course they have a multi-tiered dock to observe the ponies and the sunrises. I do not have kids, but it seemed there was plenty to keep the them as well as the adults occupied. I did not use it, but they do have a shuttle bus that takes you to Ocean City or Assateague Island. They have redone this resort the right way and I will definitely return.

This is a great campground if you want a lot of activities. We swam in the pool, fished, shot some pool and played air hockey in the game room, played prize bingo, and participated in the rubber duck race. Even with all that, we had time to kick back and relax in front of a camp fire both evenings we were here. We had one of the VIP sites and found it to be level and private. I had not been here since it was RJ Ranch and was very fond of the way they ran the campground. I found the staff of Lakeridge to be very friendly and helpful. We will definitely camp here again.

I'll start by saying this is a nice, peaceful campground but how the previous posts give it a 9 I'll never know. The sites are paved and level. Aside from a bath house and pavilion, there are no amenities within the campground. You have to drive into Tanglewood Park if you want to fish or swim and you have to pay extra for that privilege. That is the reason I give it a 7. A nice campground in the Winston-Salem area was needed and this fits the bill. I will definitely camp here again.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay over the 4th of July weekend. I had a lake view site on tier 3 and a beautiful sunset every evening. The staff is friendly and helpful. I especially liked the RV Bar which gave us a chance to socialize with others staying at the resort and they had live music 2 days. Having lakeside access allowed us to use our kayaks and do a little fishing. The reasons I don't give it a 10: swimming area in the lake is kind of small and I would have liked it to be in a little deeper area where you can't touch the mucky bottom. Also there is no shade relief when it is hot. Those reasons are not enough to keep me from returning again in the near future.

We have stayed here in the past. It is an average campground. Easy access off of I-95 and a short drive to downtown Savannah. The sites are sand and fairly level. It is kind of messy when it rains. It is almost amazing how many overnight campers they get. We stayed 3 nights and had a new camper next to us each night. The campground workers are very friendly. We have stayed at all of the campgrounds in the area and like this one the best. For dinner, I highly recommend Steamers and Love's Restaurant which are a short drive from the campground.

Far enough from I-81 that you do not hear any highway noise. The staff was very friendly and kept the park up nicely. As stated before, the WiFi was iffy. We enjoyed an Ice Cream social one night and a pancake breakfast another morning. Our site was #18 and was a very roomy pull through. They definitely need to consider adding cable TV, however we were able to get a satellite signal at our site. We would definitely stay here again.

As some of the previous reviews suggest, bring your leveling blocks. There are very few sites where you will not need them. Also make sure you have an extra water hose and y-connector. In the A and C loops you will most likely have to share a water spigot with your neighbor. This is a local campground for us, so we use it many times a year for a quick getaway. We like to kayak and fish on the lake. The pool is open between Memorial Day and Labor Day, however we were disappointed that the hours have been shortened. There are tennis courts, golf course, and boat marina within walking distance. That said, we were shocked that the price has gone from $19 to $25 since January of this year. That is quite a jump for no real improvements. For the type of campground this is, I thought $19-$20 was a fair price. They did add WI-FI however nobody we talked to in the C loop could get connected. Several times a year, we bring the MH home out for a week and commute to work. Now that they are priced closer to a private campground, I hope some major improvements are on the horizon. Several others made their displeasure known about the rate increase as well. If they make some major improvements like water for each site, leveling some sites, etc, then it will be worth it.

We camped here at Christmas, and received a discounted rate for having a KOA card. Usually during winter camping you cannot take advantage of all the amenities. They have a heated swimming pool enclosed by a tent, which we found to be a nice touch. As mentioned in another review, the nature trail was poorly marked. While we did not use the bath house, we did check them out and found them very clean. The sites are a mixture of dirt and gravel. We had a pull through which was fairly level. They do have cable TV, however it was more important to us to get a satellite signal for the NFL Sunday Ticket. We were told that all of their sites are satellite friendly and we did not have a problem getting a signal. It was a very easy 10 mile trip to downtown Charleston for sightseeing. There is plenty of shopping within blocks of the campground for groceries and supplies. I only have one complaint. We requested a lake view site. When I made reservations, I was told nothing was available. In fact, I was told they only had 2 sites available. During our entire stay, there were many more than 2 sites available. Also there were sites across from us overlooking the lake that were used for overnight campers. You would think that somebody camping for 4 nights would get a preferred spot over somebody there for 1 night. Especially since when you make a reservation they can not guarantee a particular site. They will only try to do their best to get you the site you want. I have run into this at other campgrounds as well and really do not understand it. Regardless of this flaw, we would definitely camp here again.

From previous posts and our experience, it seems site reservations and coordination of groups is a problem for this campground. We had reserved 3 side-by-side sites for 3 nights. One in our party tried to cancel 2 days in advance. He could never get anybody to answer the phone. He left a message on the answering machine stating he had to cancel. When he called again the next day, he was told since he did not give 48 hours notice he was going to be charged for one night. He told them he left a message on their machine. They said they never got the message. When I originally made my reservation, I could never get an answer either. I left a message and they returned my call within an hour. When I arrived, I double checked to make sure the other camper in our party was going to be in the site next to ours. They confirmed this and said it was not a problem. When our other camper showed up a few hours later, they were assigned a site 2 spots away. When we complained at the office, we were told they already promised the site to somebody else. I told them that is not what I was told earlier. They said nothing could be changed. Later that evening an overnight camper showed up on that site, but there were many other empty spots that they could have been sent to. With as many open sites as they had, they could have very easily had us in side by side sites. This is just an average campground. The sites are fairly level and all sandy soil. It is convenient to get to from I-95 and the ride to downtown Savannah is not too bad. The pool area was clean. In the office, they had a nicely stocked store. The next time we are in Savannah we will probably stay somewhere else.

We had stayed here about 6 years ago when it was Bellaire Woods and experienced the nasty owner that everyone has talked about. It is now Savannah Oaks RV Resort. We decided to give it another try since it is under new ownership. When checking in, the girls in the office were polite and helpful. If there was someone in the office, the gate was opened for us when we reentered the park otherwise we had to use a code. Work is being done to upgrade the park; we saw a new pool and playground. Their sites however are average at best. We were on site 35. It was fairly level but barely wide enough to accommodate a triple slide MH. We had to jockey around to get it situated just right between trees and the power pole. The sites are paved with a large gravel stone which is uncomfortable to walk on barefoot. We were there for 5 days and did not see the bath house cleaned once. The floors were dirty and there was not any toilet paper in one. At $34.75 a night, I would not stay here again unless I heard they have made improvements to the sites.

After reading the previous reviews giving this campground a 9 and 10, I wonder what those people would give to a campground that has full hookups, cable TV, paved sites, etc. That being said, this is a very nice campground. The gravel entrance road to the campground is a little rough. There are only a couple sites in the shaded area that are big enough for bigger rigs. We stayed in the main loop. The sites were grassy and fairly level. One water spigot is shared between 2 sites so bring a splitter and extra water hose. With a multiple slide RV, you will find the sites a little tight if you are between neighbors. There are 2 dump stations. There is a small playground in the campground area. Within a short walk in the park, there are fishing lakes, canoe rentals, and miniature golf. The canoe rentals and miniature golf are seasonal. They do not have a swimming pool; however there is a public pool a short ways away that you can pay to use. The whole park is kept up very well. We have camped here many times and will continue to do so. I give it a 7 because of the lack of some amenities but it is a great deal at $17 a night.

They advertise that there were a couple million dollars done in improvements, but I did not really see much different from when we were there about 5 years ago. They have added 50 amp sites with new power poles/water spigots, camping cabins, and wi-fi internet. It looked like the area of 30 amp hookups has not changed at all. The main reason we stayed here was the convenience to the amusement park. The shuttle was reliable. Other than that I thought the rate was high for what they offered. Because of trees, we were not able to get a satellite signal. If you needed satellite, I would consider staying in the last row of the Maple or Oak areas. There were not as many trees to the south. The sites are paved and ours was fairly level. They keep the entire area clean. Overall we enjoyed our stay. We would stay here again to go to the amusement park.

Overall this is a well maintained campground. The interior roads are a little rough though. Over the Labor Day weekend they had many activities going on and it is convenient to many area attractions. The only complaint I have is our site was way too small for our 36' MH. We were along the lake but not lakeside. It seems that every one parked along this road was in a site too small for their rig. It did not leave any room to park a tow/towed vehicle. And for those that did park in front of their RV, it did not leave any room for others to back in their site. We arrived at 9:00 pm in the pouring rain left from Tropical Storm Ernesto and had to try to jockey in our site because of a van parked in front of their travel trailer. Because the site was too small, we had to back in at a more severe angle. We ended up straddling the gravel pad which meant more leveling. We also had to use an extension to reach the power pole. Not fun in the rain. We ended up parking our car down the road in an open grassy area. We would stay here again but would definitely request another site.

This is definitely the nicest campground we have stayed in. At the top of the road of phase 1, there is a breath taking view of the mountains. All sites have a wide and level concrete pad with picnic bench. We had a site that you pull into which provided a nice view out our front window. The entire campground is kept up impeccably. The staff was friendly and helpful. If you like waterfalls, there are many in the area ranging from easy hikes to very difficult. And there are many surrounding small towns with quaint shopping and restaurants. Grocery stores and bigger retail is a short drive to Brevard, however there is an Ingles grocery store and Dollar General in nearby Cashiers. We will definitely return.

The new rate is $19 and I agree it is a great deal for full hookups with cable TV and a ton of things to do. We stayed in a 36' triple slide MH. There are some shortcomings though. Very few sites are level. Most slope forwards or backwards and require blocks under the MH jacks to get the unit level. In the A and C loops, one water spigot is shared for every 2 campsites. Bring an extra water hose or two because you may have quite a distance to the hookup or it may be on the wrong side of your rig. Also bring a splitter because many times your neighbor will not have one which makes it difficult to share the connection. Loop B or the rally area is the most level however the sites are very tight. They were not designed for today's multislide rigs so when you have your slides out it is impossible to put your awning out if you have a neighbor next to you. This area also does not have any shade and in the summer may be closed to the public if a rally is going on. I'll be realistic with my rating because there are campgrounds that are much nicer. Because of the things to do, beauty of the area, and value I give it a 7. Don't get me wrong, we love this place and will return many more times.

We had a pull through site which was fairly level and shaded. The hook ups were in a convenient location. The guy that led us to our site was not very helpful and in a bad mood. We had to move our MH from where he originally had us park otherwise our door would open up right into a tree and we would not be able to use our awning. We had enough shade from the trees around our site so we did not use the awning anyway. I'd rate this campground a little above average. It is an older campground that needs some updating. They have a nice fishing lake, horse shoe pits, badmitten nets, basketball court, playground, jumping pillow, game room, and a very old miniature golf course. The pool was not open yet but it looked nice. The bath house needed to be cleaned when I used it. There are a lot of seasonal sites. Since we could not use many of the amenities because of the time of year, I thought they were overpriced. And I despise campgrounds that charge extra if you have an air conditioner. With the exception of a few pop up campers, there are few RV's with out air conditioning. Just build it into the price instead of irritating people with an extra charge. Because of the weather, we did not have to run our's at all but still had to pay an extra $2 a day. And after charging that fee, they have the audacity to have in their rules to be conservative with your air conditioning. We had no problems with noise from people or cows. It was very quiet and peaceful.

This weekend was all about our dogs and this is the most dog friendly campground we have stayed at. There are fenced in play areas, agility courses, a swimming lake, and doggy bath house. For Easter weekend, they even had an Easter egg hunt for the dogs. Of course the hidden eggs contained dog treats. Sometimes you want to kick back and not do much of anything and this place definitely fits the bill because there is not much to do without your dog. They do have fishing and swimming lakes and horse shoe pits but that's about it. And the lake didn't look like something I would want to swim in. It is more a pond with lots of scum and mud shores but the dogs seem to enjoy it. The greatest asset of this campground are the owners. They are extremely hospitable checking often to make sure everything is fine. We had heard they were great cooks so we participated in the German Easter dinner and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent. Bingo was played after dinner as a fund raiser for their charitable organization to help shelters in the area. They also have a small gift shop with some very nice hand crafted dog related items. With a bigger rig, the ride to the campground was a little hairy. The road leading up to the campground is narrow and windy with some shoulder drop offs. Not fun when opposite traffic crosses the double line on curves. The campground is a bit on the rustic side. We had a full hookup, pull-thru site. It was freshly gravelled and fairly level. The owners deserve a 10 rating because of their graciousness but my overall rating is 8 because of the lack of amenities. We will definitely return.

We have stayed at this campground several times and they continue to make improvements each time we return. There is now a nice office in a log building with a lounge area for computer users and laundry facility. The lady who checked us in was very helpful and even arranged a late check out time for us. In the past we have stayed in the gravel pull through sites but this time we had site #26 overlooking the lake. The site was pretty close to being level. It was a full hookup site with cable TV. Most of the campground is only a gravel parking lot, but the sites along the lake have grassy areas and trees. The bathhouse is huge, heated, and clean. There is not a whole lot to do at the campground but they do have catch and release fishing on the lake, horseshoe pits, and a few play areas for kids. There is a ton of stuff to do in the area, especially if you are a race fan. We did some shopping at Tom Johnson's Camping Center and Concord Mills Outlet Mall, visited race shops, and stopped by Lowes Motor Speedway. Unfortunately the day we were at Lowes they were not offering the track tour due to the work to repave the track. The tour is $5 a person and includes a van ride around the track. We will definitely use this campground again and request a lake front site.

We camped on one of their signature sites, #116. We had some rain while we were there, so we really appreciated the concrete slab. The only complaint we had with the site was the location of the electric, cable, and water hookups. They were closer to the front of the site rather than the rear making it difficult to position the MH so our parked car was not an obstruction. The problem could have been avoided had we had a longer cable TV cord but then we might have had to use an extension for power. We loved the view of the river and the nice fire ring. The site was perfectly level and landscaped nicely. We visited in December so we did not use many of the amenities; however we did walk around the campground and found the bath houses and pool area to be very nice. The only other negative is the difficulty of making a left turn onto 441 from the campground. Traffic was not too bad while we were there but we could see it being very difficult during peak season traffic. We would stay here again.

There are not many campground choices in the Asheboro area, which is unfortunate because there is a lot to do in the area. We have stayed at Zooland, Holly Bluff, and now Deep River and found all of them to be comparable. They are all older campgrounds that need some work. None of them are outstanding but are acceptable. Zooland is now a private campground so that eliminates another choice. Holly Bluff is a cramped campground and not able to accommodate big rigs. We needed 4 campsites near each other. 2 rigs in our group were 40' and needed 50 amp service. The owners were very accommodating during the reservation process and were extremely friendly upon check in, even waiting late for our last arrival. The entrance road was extremely rough. Our sites had plenty of room but were not too level. There were many seasonal sites but most were well maintained and the residents seemed friendly. We camped here in the beginning of December, so we were not able to take advantage of the amenities. Based on the friendliness of the owners and the pretty property it sits on, we will camp here again in the warmer months to take advantage of all the campground offers.

The campground is well maintained, some lots are landscaped better than others. Getting in the entrance was a little tight, so I would recommend disconnecting the toad on the street before the entrance. Some sites would be easier to back in than others. We were in site 162 and it was not easy to back into mainly because the site in front of us had 2 vehicles parked in front of their MH. Carry a female to female cable adapter because all of the sites have male plugs. You can get one at the office for a $2 deposit but beware the office may not be open normal hours on a holiday weekend. Our site was fairly level, but with a poured concrete slab I expected very little to no leveling. While the campground is convenient to some shopping, we found that most of the things we wanted to do were on the other side of the island. It may not look far, but Hwy 278 traffic can get pretty congested especially on a holiday weekend. Which also made for an interesting left hand turn from Jenkins Rd. Overall we had a nice experience and enjoyed the amenities. We would return if we were with others in a trailer, otherwise we'll stay at the Outdoor Resorts Motor Coach Resort on the other side of the island only because it is more convenient for the bicycle trails and other sights on the island.

It's not the place to go if you need constant entertainment because of the lack of amenities which is why I give it an 8. But it is a very nice campground. They have a 9 hole Par 3 golf course, 18 hole miniature golf course, driving range, putting green, and game room. The roads and sites are gravel. The sites are fairly level. The bath house is clean and they offer a laundry facility that works on the honor system. If you are holding a rally, they have a nice room to use with kitchen. The campground is kept spotless. It is a relaxing place to spend a few days with some great mountain scenery. If you like old time or bluegrass music, there is much to do in the area. It is also very close to the Blueridge Parkway. The owner is working on expanding the campground with more sites. We will definitely return.

After reading some of the previous reviews about rule enforcement and road noise I was a little nervous that I had picked the wrong campground, however my fears were completely unfounded. We enjoyed our stay very much. There was a little road noise but it was not too bad. We even slept with the windows open. I saw some enforcement of rules, but each time a rule was being broken like parking in a clearly marked no parking area. When we arrived for Labor Day weekend, there were 8 RV's in line waiting to check in. The staff was very efficient getting all checked in and escorted to their sites. I've waited longer at other campgrounds when I was the only one in line. We were in sites B2 and B3. Both had concrete pads and were perfectly level. The sites were a little narrow but comfortable and there was plenty of room behind us. They have a very nice store. The pool was clean. The entire campground is kept spotless. The only complaint we have is the TV reception in the area is terrible. We couldn't even get network TV to watch a race. We don't use the bath houses, however they are closed for cleaning between 10 and 11 A.M. We saw several people complain about that. We will definitely visit again.

As previously stated, the park makes up for the sub-par campground. Pluses for the campground were the pool, the camp store, and the water taxi service. Minuses were very uneven sites and rude office help. We were put into a site (318) that was too small for our MH and very uneven. It was also marked as full hookup, but I could never find the sewer. Several others were unsuccessful as well. It looked like the site was washed over from a heavy rain, so it was probably buried and somebody had removed the marker. I had to argue with the lady at the office to get another site. That one (306) fit our MH and was only a little more level than the other. I still had to jack the front end off the ground to get it even close to being level and because of the incline at our door, forget about trying to sit out on chairs. We used the picnic table. It looks like they are switching to a poured concrete picnic table. Most sites had them including ours. They were very uncomfortable to sit on and we saw many sites where one bench was already broken. After walking the grounds we found several other sites that would have been more suitable and noted them for future visits. We enjoyed the park enough to overlook these flaws.
