After a horrible two night experience, we moved to Bear Creek and stayed a week. We understand that late in the season camps slow down and empty out, but even so, this place was great and run by wonderful people. The view, overseeing Biltmore Estate only one exit away on I-40, is breathtaking. The facilities are very clean. The owners were gracious. We spent most of our week just enjoying the setting. It is an easy commute both to downtown and Biltmore with grocery store and a fantastic farmers market just down the road. A best bet in our mind!!
We had called the campsite several times to make sure they could accommodate us, it was difficult to get them on the phone which should have been the first clue. We arrived to a completely empty, closed for the season site and via phone told to pick any site and put our money in an envelope. The bathrooms were closed for the season and electricity at the site shut off, contrary to what we had been previously promised. Whoever was on the other end of the phone made it clear he had no intention of coming over to help us, he didn't care whether we stayed or left, so we left. I can appreciate that this late in the year and at a Passport America rate we shouldn't expect much, but this campground outright lied to us. So far we have traveled near 50 campgrounds in 6 months and we put this at the bottom because if management.
Wilson's Riverside is situated directly under major highways on a river in the midst of a jogging park, which goes through the camp. As everyone says there is a certain charm and a lot of noise. I suspect in warm weather it is more than sufficient for a day or too, although it is a very sharp right hand turn to directly enter the campground. However, we were there in late October, and the bathroom/showers, in an unheated trailer, were going to be shut off Nov. 1st which we were never told and hence required our having to find another campground for our extended stay. It is unclear who or how this park is managed; you check in at a repair shop with men who are curt, bordering on rude. There were some larger rigs like ours, several dilapidated long termers, and some tenters with a public jogging trail through the middle of the camp. We made a point of locking up every time we went out.
Superb county park with excellent RV facilities, water park, huge dog park with pond where leashes aren't required. Was an easy back-in and hook up, a short drive to Charleston. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The only complaint was no swimming pool but definitely a destination camp in a beautiful, park setting.
A delightful young Australian family has recently purchased this older camp, which is easily accessible off I-95, and are making improvements. That said, it was spotless, had everything we needed, an extraordinary bargain with our Passport America, easy hookup for our Class A with toad, a great pool, and the owners became instant family. We would have liked to have stayed longer but had to move on. We cannot wait to return to see what they have done and visit with them.
I realize October in upstate New York is off season, but this scary place looked like it had been deserted for years or a setting for a Stephen King film, truly disgusting. The bathrooms, showers and all other facilities were closed; the manager was unhelpful bordering rude, and they charged $39. We got the GS discount of 10%, but it still was way overpriced. The only thing going for it was its easy access of I-8,1 and there very very few options within 80 miles. Of the 40+ RV parks we have visited since May, this ranks about the worst.
A simple, no frills, excellently maintained campground right off I-81 exit 80, adjacent to rolling hills with cows in the pasture. Very easy pull through for any size, very clean facilities, this RV campground deserves the high reputation is apparently has had for many years. Their store has RV accessories and Propane fill up. Word to the wise, year around it starts to fill up by 3pm and empties out again by 10am.
The biggest problem with this place is that they are not truthful about the place when I phoned in advance and the people on site know nothing about RV camping. The website posts a log cabin that doesn't exist. Most of the river sites were taken by long termers and none could accommodate a Class A. It really is a gas station with sloppy sites almost directly underneath Route 81 overpass. It is noisy, dirty and hard to access.
We were in Fayetteville for over a week for repairs wandering around looking for an RV Park to call home: and this was it!! Immaculate, large facilities, wonderful staff, easy going. They lived up to and surpassed what they offered.
