The pluses for this park include easy access to downtown, proximity to local attractions, adequate-size sites and reasonable price. However, the restrooms and showers are not clean and there are few amenities. We would stay there again for the convenience if in the area, but this is not a destination park.
We stay at this park several times a year while visiting a relative nearby. We are never here for Canton First Mondays, so there are usually a great many empty sites. When we first visited several years ago we were escorted to our site and received free firewood for the first night and a dog treat for our dog. These amenities were not offered on our last few visits. Yesterday on check in we were given two WiFi codes but told that they probably wouldn't work since the WiFi system was problematic and needed replacement. The cable signal was poor. Many of the supposed-to-be-lighted pedestals were dark, ours included. The bathroom wasn't as clean as it could have been; dirt and debris was scattered in corners. It was disappointing that the sprinklers in our area came on about 9:30 AM, creating a muddy mess while we were trying to enjoy a few minutes outside after breakfast before we left for the day. I'm sure the poor economy has had an impact on the operation, but the reality sure doesn't live up to the description on their website or our past experience.
We arrived in a torrential downpour, and it rained all night and into the next morning. The roads and sites are gravel and drainage was good. Not too many puddles, and none were deep; quite good considering the amount of rain. It was nice not to have muddy dog feet in our rig. The bathhouse in our area was exceptionally clean. It looked recently renovated, with nice tiled walls and floors in the showers. The buildings were spotless; no spiderwebs, dustballs or dead leaves anywhere inside I could see. Wi-Fi was adequate and free; not sure what the signal strength would be when the park is full. Sites are average size. We were assigned two back to back for a pull through. Again, sure how this would work when park is full. We expect it might be tight for larger rigs. All sites are well shaded by mature trees. We only stayed overnight so can't rate other amenities. They don't accept any discount programs.
This place is pretty consistent. It's clean and neat, has a gameroom, mini golf and a playground for kids, and a small store. We always stay here when passing through the area. Sites are gravel, but not very level. We have a class B Sprinter based camper van. This time we needed three blocks under the right front and two blocks under the left front tire to get comfortably, not perfectly, level. Wifi is good and the owners are nice. The price is a bit high but the location is convenient for seeing the area or a one-night stopover on the way through.
This is an interesting place. It's behind and adjacent to an RV parts and service store, where you check in. They do not take advance reservations but if you call ahead they will assign you a site. If you just drive over, as we did, there is a phone to call for a site assignment. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon when the store was closed, but someone was around to show us to our site, which was pretty level gravel surrounded by grass and trees near a small stream. He told us the owner would open the store at 9 AM so we could pay cash that evening or pay the owner and get a receipt on the morning, which we did. Wi-Fi is TengoNet and the signal was good but kept logging us off. It was very rainy but the sites were not muddy. The bath/shower rooms were clean, with hand soap and paper towels provided. This is a great place to stay overnight, but not a place kids would enjoy, since there is nothing to do. Although close to the road, the traffic noise was not loud. We would stay there again when passing through.
This used to be a KOA. Sites are a bit closely spaced but terraced to afford some privacy, and fairly level. We were there on a Saturday night, so there were lots of kids having fun, and this is a great place for that. There is a fishing pond stocked with trout, nice shaded picnic tables on a sandy beach for parents to watch their kids in comfort. Hot pizza, ice cream and a nice store, plus a game room, pavilion and shaded deck area and playground make it easy to keep kids and teens amused. There's a lovely waterfall across from the tent camping area, and the river is available for canoes, kayaks, and wading. There is a dedicated dog walking area. There is a colony of multicolored semi-tame bunnies living on the grounds. People were great, not carousing all night, and observing quiet hours. The bathrooms and showers were clean. The men's shower ceiling ventilation louver was detached and hanging from the ceiling and filthy. Other than that maintenance need, everything else was okay. We would stay there again.
We've visited this park in the past and had a pleasant stay, as we did this time. Staff guidance to sites, free coffee, good Wi-Fi, strategically placed and frequently emptied trash barrels are appreciated. Gravel sites are terraced and fairly level, and midweek was quiet and peaceful. We appreciate the way they separate campers when they aren't busy. We reserved a water/electric site but they upgraded us at no charge when they saw we were repeat guests and knowing they would have the space. Facilities are not new and modern, but are clean.
This park has many seasonal campers on large sites, most with decks, sheds and decorative items arranged around the site. None were junky, and the entire park was well-kept. We told them we had a dog with us, and their only comment was to be sure and pick up after him. We were not charged extra. Our site was not level, and required three blocks under each tire on one side to get close to level. None of the other sites looked much better. There was Wi-Fi in the park, but not at our site, which they told us on check in. This was not a problem for us since we have cellular Internet service. Bathrooms and showers were clean.
This is an exceptionally nice park. The sites are level gravel, roads are paved, there are mature trees for shade but they don't get in the way. Sites have brick or concrete patios and a nice table. The pool, bathrooms and showers are very clean. The people in the office are nice and the other campers are friendly. There are numerous newer permanent park model homes in one section of the park. All are clean, well-kept and there is NO junk stored outside. The small pond is pretty and the grounds are nice. The laundry has 6 washers and dryers, an iron and ironing board, magazines and a small TV. We extended our stay by two days because we enjoyed our visit. We had a torrential downpour one night, and the drainage was good. An all-around nice, quiet and safe park for adults. Nothing for kids to do here.
This is not a destination park. It is a level, clean, gravel lot in Charlotte, behind a car dealership and machine shop, and in front of a small mobile home park. There are no facilities. The manager was very nice in accommodating our after-hours arrival on a Saturday, telling us to pick a place to park and drop a check in the mail slot, since the office is closed Sunday. The wi-fi signal was strong and steady. There were only four other rigs in the lot, and only one was occupied. The park serves as a long term living area for people who work in Charlotte during the week and go home on weekends. For the convenience and for what it is, it was a great place to stop over while visiting the Charlotte area, and there are no other close options.
We were visiting friends in the area and this was a convenient location. We were surprised to find out on arrival how nice it is! We arrived at 8 pm and even though we have a 23ft Roadtrek, they guided us to a large, fairly level pull through site. Sites are gravel, with picnic tables on nice wooden decks. Grass and grounds are lovely, and there's a pavilion, sandy beach on the large lake, and picnic areas. The bathhouse is very clean, with nice showers and private dressing areas. Some sites are near a road, but there is a large noise abatement wall that muffles the noise effectively. A staff member alerted us that our water connection was leaking, and another staff person quickly offered help. These are nice folks! We would definitely stay here again.
This is a co-op park with some spaces for transients. This early in the season the pool wasn't open, and the store was closed when we checked in, so we can't comment on those things. We were told there was no wi-fi, which was a disappointment. The bathrooms and showers were clean, although somewhat worn. There is catch and release fishing in the lake, a playground, and you can rent a kayak for the day. Sites are large and level gravel. The grounds are nicely kept and it's apparent that work is ongoing to improve the park with the addition of more rental cabins. They offer deer hunting packages and guide services, so the park would be good for avid hunters and anglers. We had the park almost entirely to ourselves on a weekday night. It is a nice park but a bit expensive for the amenities available during our stay.
This is a gorgeous, well maintained campground with something for everyone. Sites are huge, wooded and very private; all are pull through, and each has a fire ring, a nice picnic table and a lantern pole. The restrooms, showers and laundry are clean. In the laundry room there's a stainless dual sink for dish washing with paper towels available nearby. There are 4 playgrounds, some with cushioned rubber for the small kids, a lake for fishing, and miles of trails for hiking. Two adjacent sites share a water spigot, so 50 ft of water hose is necessary. This early in the season we had the loop to ourselves. This county-run park puts most private campgrounds and state parks to shame. We loved our stay there and wish we could have stayed longer.
Since we arrived on a weekday in off-season, the office told us we could choose any of the first 28 sites. We chose #4, which was fairly level, had a nice wooden deck, and a strong wifi signal. The signal dropped as distance from the office increased. It was apparent that the campground caters to primarily seasonal sites, since many sites, even if empty, had homemade decks, planters, chairs and other stuff, but nothing junky. Sites were average size. They converted the tent camping area into sites for campers needing open sky for satellite. The pool wasn't open, but the small playground looked okay. The showers we're awful. The mats were grungy, the metal on the fixtures was rusty, floor tiles were missing, the toilet stanchion was corroded to the point it had lost attachment to the floor, and there was no soap for hand washing. We were only there for one night, and the price was steep for the amenities provided and the overall state of disrepair. There aren't a lot of other options on the area, but next time we are passing through we will look elsewhere
Lovely park with fishing pond, walking trail, game room, laundry and Wi-Fi. Used to be a KOA under previous owners. Current owners are friendly and helpful and appear to be making improvements to the park. There is a game room with video games and a pool table. The walking path around the lake is very nice with great views and benches to sit and enjoy them. Sites are gravel, roomy and level, with freshly painted picnic tables and fire rings. We were escorted to our site by the owner. The park was quiet and looked like a great place to spend some time. We could only stay overnight, but would stay here again.
Park is relatively new, and very nice. Sites are large with lighted pedestals. Showers and bathrooms were clean, although shower curtains had a few black streaks of mildew along the bottoms. Nice clubhouse with Wi-Fi hotspot. Our site was close to the clubhouse and we had a pretty good signal inside our rig. Lots of places to walk dogs. It rained hard overnight but level gravel sites drained okay, and there was no mud. Laundry was clean. There is a pirate ship and playground area for kids. Owners are very nice and trying hard to please guests. The park is in a great location for visiting Amish country, and we would definitely stay here again.
This park was a disappointment. It is in an urban area off a highway and behind a fire station; some sites are directly adjacent to the highway, others are next to an equipment storage lot, and many face the large pond with a fountain in the center of the park, which is surrounded by a pretty, grassy area. We called ahead for a reservation and on arrival we were assigned site 40, between the fire station and the pond. The pond had a large flock of Canada geese which wandered all over the grounds and roads leaving goose droppings everywhere; it was impossible to avoid stepping in it. During our overnight stay we saw no sign of management. Several dogs were running loose and a neighboring rig that came in late was partying and making noise well after 11:30 pm. The shower area was not very clean. We would not stay here again.
Very clean bathrooms and showers. Nice pool. Good Wi-Fi. Previous reviews noted nearby highway noise as an issue. We did not find the traffic hum loud enough to interfere with outdoor enjoyment or a good night's sleep. We liked the beautiful surroundings, with tall shade trees and a lovely fishing pond surrounded by acres of corn and soybean fields. A pot of marigolds was on each picnic table and guests received free fresh-baked cookies on check-in. Owners were pleasant and professional. The view of the small red barn on the far side of the pond at sunset was picture-postcard-pretty. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
This park is right next door to the Ozark Folk Center State Park. There's a walking trail through the woods to the folk center, a real convenience, since the visitor parking lots for the folk center are far enough away from the craft village that most people take the free shuttle. The sites are gravel and fairly level with terraced rows. The facilities are clean, and there is free coffee in the office. Mid morning the cleanup crew was raking and burning leaves at the edge of the park, a minor nuisance. We liked the park and the convenience and would stay there again.
After a long, busy day we decided to stop early and see if they had any space available here for the night. There was no one in the office but the check-in board showed they were full, so we turned around to head for our original destination when we saw the owner approaching. We have a Sprinter based Roadtrek, and he said he could easily fit us in a small parking area behind the office and provide us with water and 30 amp power and a place to dump on our way out. He showed us where to park, set up the water and power cord, and said he'd catch us in the morning. The park is small, quiet, clean and neat. Sites were gravel and looked level. There is a small playground and covered picnic pavilion. The very friendly owner gave us a discount because we didn't have full amenities. What we did have was a quiet, private spot and a great night's sleep. We would love to visit this park again.
This park is close to the St. Charles historic district and attractions and you pay a lot for the convenience. It is basically a large parking lot at the end of a residential street with some grass between sites and around the edges. No shade. Dogs are welcome but must be walked outside the park gate. They are very strict about that. A dog park is a short distance away. There's a restaurant/banquet center in the park, which is very strange. The bathrooms and showers were dirty the afternoon we arrived and still dirty late the next morning. The park smelled like sewage in the evening but was okay in the morning. The Wi-Fi signal (Tengo) was weak and intermittently disconnected. There are few other options in the area but we'll drive further rather than stay here again. The price is too high for what you get.
An interesting park with rustic western themed buildings. The facilities we used were clean but dated. There are a lot of minerals in the water, making a filter necessary. Our site was a long, level gravel back to back site. The rig in front was a pull through and we backed in behind them. There was sufficient room on each side so we didn't feel too cramped. Many campers seemed to be long-term contract workers, and those we met were pleasant and quiet. There is a small, sparkling clean pool. The park recycles. We were told that the park is for sale because the owners need to relocate to another state. We were given a discounted rate because we have a Sprinter based camper van. We would stay there again.
The owners of this park work hard to create a peaceful, friendly place and they succeed. The facilities were very clean, with plenty of hot water in the showers. Our site was perfectly level, and had a patch of nicely trimmed grass and a new picnic table. The view out of our back window was beautiful. We enjoyed a quiet night in the hills with stars above and the hum of cicadas, and the free coffee in the morning was a real convenience. The park is close to many attractions and the staff is knowledgeable and helpful. We would stay there again.
Don't let the name fool you. This park is a couple of miles down a country road lined with older, often dilapidated homes and businesses. When we pulled in we saw a sign saying, "I'm working somewhere in the park. Call xxx-xxx-xxxx". We drove through the small park to take a look around. What we saw was not even close to the photos or description on their website. The few concrete pads were occupied by long-term campers. One had a permanent metal carport-type awning erected over the camper. The remaining few sites were gravel and dirt with no shade, open to the blazing sun. There was a large area of East Texas red dirt churned up across from the vacant sites, which was generating a lot of dust from someone driving around in a golf cart. It was apparent that some type of work was going on, but the park and the area overall didn't look conducive to a pleasant stay, so we left.
Rate reflects Good Sam discount. This adult-oriented park has a limited number of overnight sites; the majority of sites are for long term/seasonal use on a separate loop. There is a catch and release fishing pond in the center of the park with a small pier. Lining the pond are covered swings, Adirondack chairs and picnic sites. All of the sites, transient and seasonal, are huge and level. Each site has a fire ring and nice picnic table. The long-term sites each have a patio area with table and chairs or a circular picnic table and benches, a charcoal grill/smoker and a covered swing, and strategic plantings to add beauty and privacy. All sites are shaded by large trees. The laundry/bath house is clean. The park is very pet friendly. Good Wi-Fi signal. Loved out time here, and will return.
The website makes this new park sound wonderful. That wasn't our experience. The potential is certainly here: cement pads, large picnic pavilion with grills and sinks, modern restrooms, private showers, laundry, pool--all on a lovely lake. But the reality was disappointing. The cement pads were covered with up to an inch and a half of sandy soil washed down from the surrounding area by past heavy rains, making it impossible not to track soil into our rig. Dead trees and shrubs abound. At a site near ours a fallen tree was lying on its side across the top of the fire ring. The site next to ours had trash strewn about, including a plastic soda bottle and metal cans and wrappers, all faded as if they'd been there a while. The sparse grass was unmowed and a foot high in places, growing in scraggly tufts in the sandy soil along with tall weeds, even inside the fire rings, giving the entire park a seedy, unkempt appearance. At 4 PM the bathrooms were in need of cleaning, with waste splattering one toilet bowl, trash on the floor, and soap scum in the shower stalls. The laundry had soap spilled on the floor in several places and one machine out of order. The pool was supposed to be open until 10 but was locked at 9:30 and the bathrooms were still in need of attention. Perhaps all this could be explained if the park was busy, but we saw about 12 other campers and there are over 100 sites. The next morning the bathrooms were still dirty and the staff mowed our site while we were there, stirring up dust. When they brought out the blower my husband told them to stop to avoid an even bigger dust cloud. The free, strong Wi-Fi signal, nice buildings, pretty surroundings and good layout don't make up for the lack of maintenance and upkeep, and don't justify the cost, even with a Good Sam discount. We spoke to the manager on our way out, and after multiple attempts to justify the issues we experienced, he offered us a full refund. This may be a great park someday, but we will seek other options.
The park looks new, with level concrete pads, nice hookups and young trees. The pool looked clean, as did the bathrooms. The Wi-Fi was good, but multiple computers cannot log on with the same access code, and data usage has limits set by the provider, Tengo. Sites were adequate size with nice grass despite the Texas drought. This park is an excellent value at the Passport America rate. We would stay here again.
Good location for a short stay in the Asheville/Blue Ridge Parkway vicinity. Owner was nice. Sites are concrete and gravel, level and clean. Bathrooms were older but acceptably clean. No amenities in the park other than a picnic table at each site. The sites are narrow, and divided from the neighboring site by a short section of stockade fence to give the illusion of privacy. The park is sandwiched between a river and a gas station. Access to the gas station is easy. River access is blocked by kudzu and boards. Our site, C4, was close to the office, but the advertised Wi-Fi would not reliably connect and when it did the signal was very weak, so we gave up. Next time we are in the area we will seek other options.
Quiet, well maintained park with adequate size, level gravel sites. Nice pet walk area, pool, playground. Daily trash pick up. Hot, freshly cooked breakfast and dinner selections at fair prices for the convenience. Facilities were clean. Staff was great, friendly and professional. We would stay here again.
The park looked great when we arrived, with well manicured grass at the entry, a ballpark, playground, and pool. We paid a $3 fee for use of these facilities, but they are so far away from the camping areas that it's impractical to use them for a short stay. There are tent sites, seasonal sites, and overnight sites, plus rental cabins. We were given our choice of sites in the Phase 3 area adjacent to a large lake. The access road to this area was bumpy, narrow, and steep, and all roads were patched, had holes, and were uneven but negotiable. Our area was not well-maintained. The gravel/grass sites were fairly level, but many were overgrown with tall grass and had cracked concrete picnic table pads. Many picnic tables were on the grass, and they had mowed around them, leaving grass grown tall underneath. The first site we checked had sewage spilled on the ground around the sewer connection; the toilet paper and waste had been there a while. Other sites we looked at had damaged water standpipes. One circuit box is shared by two sites, so a longer cord may be required. The bathroom facilities were okay, but in need of some TLC, and ventilation was inadequate for humid mornings. They use shower curtains for toilet stall doors. We could not get a wi-fi signal anywhere but the office area, and our Verizon cell signal was weak. Lots of flies and red ants. We would probably not choose to stay here again, but there aren't many full-hookup options close to this part of the Natchez Trace, and it was so hot and humid we wanted these amenities.
A very nice park, clean and quiet. Sites are average size, and since the park was not busy, the staff spaced the campers to add more privacy. Everything was clean and well kept. Wi-Fi was good. Site had shade, much appreciated as it was very hot when we were there.
Very close to Gettysburg National Park and attractions. This is an older park and some facilities could be updated but were clean overall. They specialize in horse tours of the NP and have stabling available for people who choose to bring their own horses. They rent audio tour CD's for the battlefield for $5; very reasonable and convenient. Sites were adequate size, shady and our site was perfectly level. There are tent sites and seasonal sites, and all the campers we met were friendly. Dogs are welcome. We stayed several nights,and would not hesitate to stay here again.
This park is a gem, with top notch facilities for enjoying the outdoors. Facilities rival those of most private campgrounds we've stayed at. Each site has a picnic table, fire ring with grill, lantern posts on a gravel pad. Some sites are W&E only but there are a few full hookup sites too and primitive sites. Sites are well-spaced. The sites are shady and cool, roads are good, and the bath/shower houses were spotless, well-lit, with ceiling fans and good ventilation. The dump station was being worked on during our visit, but wasn't a concern for us. There's a small fishing pond and lots of walking trails. The campground host was very friendly and escorted us to our site. We would drive out of our way to stay here again.
Good park, clean, quiet, fairly level grass and gravel sites. Shower/baths clean and roomy. No pool. Friendly owners, but erratic morning office hours. They kept changing the "open at" time on the sign. Playground, game room, good Wi-Fi at our site. We have stayed here several times in the past. It's convenient and in a good location. Rather high price for amenities offered. Great wineries just down the road.
We stayed here on a busy weekend. Since we have a Class B and don't need a sewer hook-up we were assigned a very roomy, absolutely level grassy site with water and electricity only. Most of the RV sites were gravel and appeared to be level. Things we liked: The office staff was great. There was free hot cider available all day. They gave us excellent directions for a scenic drive which took us through some glorious fall foliage with lovely views including an old water wheel on a millrace with a waterfall and a marble quarry. Our site was very large with a nice picnic table and fire ring set away from our rig. The shower/restroom was spotlessly clean. However: Due to the topography there is no cell phone reception in the campground. To get a signal, guests have to walk to the campground entrance and stand next to the busy road to get a weak signal. Not the campground's fault, but it would be nice to know beforehand. The Wi-Fi signal is only obtainable at or very near the office. The restroom/shower area is not well lighted. The main reason for not giving it a higher rating is that there is no soap and no paper towels or hot air dryer in the restroom/shower area. To be clear--it wasn't that the dispensers were empty. These basic hygiene items are simply not supplied. After using the toilet you can't wash your hands with soap unless you bring your own soap with you. This isn't sanitary, particularly in a campground that hosts tents and children. We liked the park, but we probably won't stay there again.
We originally planned to stay one night, but extended our stay for two more days. This park is clean and well cared for. Bathrooms are clean and heated with plenty of hot water. Sites are gravel and appeared to have been recently groomed and leveled. On day two it rained all day, and we went in and out without bringing in mud on our feet. Sites are more roomy than other KOA's we've stayed at. WiFi signal was good. The park recycles, and trash and recycling are picked up each morning. The owners are wonderful, going out of their way to help ensure a pleasant stay. The area is central to many attractions. We would not hesitate to stay here again.
This is a lovely large park with roomy wooded sites. Many of the sites are on a different level than adjacent sites, adding more privacy. Each site has a fire ring. There are several bath houses, some newer than others. The one closest to us was older, and adequate. We were in site 144, which backed up onto a marshy area. Mosquitoes weren't a problem when we were there, but in warmer weather there might be an issue. There is a lovely, clean sandy beach. Interior roads were pretty good. The park is well cared for, sites are clean, and seasonal camping units were not junky. We were sorry that our schedule didn't allow us to stay longer in this beautiful location.
The campground is on a river, and 23 RV sites and 3 tent sites are directly on the river bank. The other side of the campground backs up to a road, but the traffic isn't heavy and there's enough of a buffer so that we didn't hear it. The seasonal camping rigs are in good repair and the campers were cordial. The sites are gravel and fairly level. The campground is well cared for and the store has a few basic needs. The owners are friendly and have prepared a great resource packet containing a few rules--nicely worded and not dictatorial--and a list of local stores, attractions and helpful information. The campground provides recycling, which we liked. We had two minor issues. When we want to get on the road early, one of us showers in our rig and the other uses campground facilities. On our first morning my husband went to the bath house only to find both shower stalls had blocked drains with cold, icky water standing in them. He reported it to the owner who addressed it. We were later getting started for the day than we wished because he had to shower in the rig when I was done. The campground has free Wi-Fi with a good signal. My husband and I both have a laptop for work, and by mistake the office gave us two duplicate codes, so one of our laptops wouldn't connect. By the time we discovered this, the office was closed. The next day we reported the problem and we were issued two different codes, both of which worked. All in all, this is a good campground with friendly and caring owners that are are trying hard to provide a pleasant visit. We had a great time here, and would return again.
If you are looking for a "destination park" catering to families with kids, or if you want a park with lots of programmed activities and packaged entertainment, this isn't the place for you. If you want a clean, safe park in a beautiful area; if you like to be surrounded by cordial, respectful adults; and if you like peace and quiet and can entertain yourself, then you will certainly like this place. There is a security gate restricting entry to campers with a current passcode. The park is well-lighted without being obtrusively bright, so you can see the stars at night. Each site is paved and level, and the park provides jack pads. The sites are roomy and surprisingly private as a result of the carefully planned layout and landscape plantings, and most sites have some shade available. There is a good mix of seasonal and overnight campers. The seasonal sites are well-kept and the seasonal campers are friendly. Dogs are welcome, and dog owners were diligent in cleaning up after their dogs and keeping them quiet and under control. We and our dogs had a great time at this park and we'd definitely return.
Our site near the pool was roomy, clean and perfectly level, with a grassy area and firepit. Almost all sites have some shade and there is a trash barrel for each site. There is a small playground, a horseshoe pit and badminton net, and a pristine pool. The tent sites are secluded and well-spaced; two face a small frog pond and others are secluded in a wooded area. In addition to the shower/bathroom building, there are several small clean outhouses adjacent to the tenting areas for camper convenience. The campground is on a well-graded dirt road. A nature trail winds for about a mile and a quarter through pine woods, fields and grassy areas and along the main road back to the campground. Since there's almost no traffic on the road, this made for a pleasant afternoon walk. The owner and staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. Wi-Fi is free and we had a strong signal. Free coffee on weekend mornings is a nice touch. We were pleased to find such a quiet and well-kept campground so close to Freeport. We have already made plans to visit again in late summer. Roadtrek:
This is a nice, rustic campground, with a mix of sites for tenters, pop-ups, trailers and motorhomes. There are only a couple of 50 amp sites. Our site 56A was wooded and perfectly level, although it would be small for anything larger than our Roadtrek. As a result, the firepit was a bit close to the van. There is a nature trail that winds through the woods to a lovely beaver pond, where you can rent a canoe or kayak for only $5 for two hours to view the wildlife. The staff was friendly and accommodating. There is a restaurant on-site that offers lobster dinners, including corn, steamers, a potato and a 2+ lb lobster for only $20. Many of the tent sites are very private and situated in beautiful terrain. Two tent sites had wooden platforms, and one site, appropriately named the "Cliff" is actually at the edge of a stone cliff with beautiful views. The store has limited supplies, mostly the basics, and great local ice cream. The bathrooms and showers are old but clean. One of the nicest things about this campground was how dark and quiet it is at night. Other campers seemed to be friendly and respectful of ensuring they didn't intrude on anyone else's camping experience.
We liked this campground. It's primarily seasonals. Some campsites have been enhanced with decks, docks, patios and custom firepits while others are messy with refrigerators and all sorts of stuff cluttering the site. We were initially assigned a site on the pond that had just been filled and graded. It was a sandpit; our wheels sunk in the loose sand so we asked for another site. We were given a choice of several others and we were satisfied with our new spot. This is a very quiet place. Staff enforces the rules and excessive noise isn't tolerated. Most sites are large and afford a fair measure of privacy. The wilderness sites for tenters are very secluded. The seasonal folks were friendly and made sure we were aware of the weekend's pot luck dinner and urged us to attend. Lots of room to walk here, and dogs are welcomed. We plan to return because we like quiet peaceful campgrounds.
Overall this campground was good. They were still cleaning up fallen branches and trimming trees and some sites needed grading and leveling. To be fair, the torrential rains and flooding New England recently experienced could have caused much of what we saw. Most sites were wooded and well-spaced although many of the pull-through sites looked tight. There are two pools; one restricted to adults. While kids are welcomed, this is an adult oriented park. There are many seasonals, and those we spoke to seemed friendly. The facilities and laundry are dated but clean. We would return.
We were in site 7, a large site on the lake directly across from the bath house. The site was level concrete. The bathrooms and showers were cleaned each morning. Staff delivered a local newspaper to our site each morning. Lots of wildlife here. The deer are almost tame. The grounds are lovely and quiet. If you like the water or would enjoy golfing you would like this park. We would definitely return.
We were met at the gate and quickly registered by a friendly employee, and then escorted to our site by the owner, who directed us into our site and pulled out her level. She used two low blocks from her cart and put them behind our tires and helped level us. The site was fine before but when she was done it was perfect. The owners take great pride in their property and it shows. There is a two section fenced dog play area with balls and tug ropes and there are dog relief stations throughout the park. The bath and shower rooms here are among the nicest and cleanest we've seen anywhere. This is a place we'll visit again.
This campground is close to the highway so there is a constant roar of traffic. It wasn't bothersome inside our rig. Sites are gravel and fairly level. It was raining when we arrived and had been raining for several days but the sites were well drained and there weren't many puddles. The manager was very accommodating. The laundry, restrooms and showers were clean. The TV reception is terrible, but they were upfront about this so it wasn't a disappointment. The Wi-Fi was great near the office area. We would stay here again.
We loved this park. Most sites are fairly level and all are shaded. Our site was directly on the Suncook River. The owners and maintenance staff as well as the seasonal campers were genuinely friendly without being intrusive. The park is quiet, peaceful, relaxing and the surroundings are lovely. If you have fond memories of how camping used to be, then this park may bring those memories back to life. The facilities are well maintained for a park of this vintage. Some of the picnic tables were well-used, but the campsites were clean, the fire pits were raked and the small beach was clean. The location is a good base for exploring the surrounding area. We will definitely visit again.
The sites are very close together and the large trees make it difficult to maneuver into your site. Sites are gravel and fairly level for such a hilly property. Some sites have wooden patios adjacent to them. Bathrooms and showers were clean. When we switched on the breaker a pole light came on to help illuminate the area while we completed setting up. We called ahead to book a late arrival and the very cordial manager called back with our site number. He left us a map as promised and we paid in the morning. It rained all night but the good drainage made walking the dogs OK since there weren't any puddles to slog through. We'd stay there overnight again.
We arrived late in a torrential downpour. Nevertheless, we were escorted to our site by the concierge, who even gave my husband a ride to our rig from the registration office so he wouldn't have to walk back in the rain. Each of our 2 dogs was given 2 dog biscuits and a waste bag as a gentle reminder to clean up after your pet: a nice touch. Level concrete sites, spotless facilities and grounds. Each site had both 30 & 50 amp service available along with 2 water outlets on a lighted pedestal. Fresh dry firewood was waiting at each site. We enjoyed our stay so much that we stopped overnight on our way home. The park is booked full during First Monday Trade Days, so plan ahead if you want a site on those weekends.
OK for an overnight stay. The campground isn't very well maintained. The owners' primary focus seems to be the restaurant and pay fishing lake. Wi-Fi is available for $5 a day. Sites away from the highway were filled with seasonals. We were in a spot near the entrance and the highway so some road noise was evident. Our site wasn't level. Most troubling was that some sites had the fresh water and sewer 6" apart at ground level which didn't seem very sanitary. We would probably not stay there again.
A perfect 10! If you want a great outdoor experience this park has it all. Level concrete pads, fire ring, private wooded sites, clean facilities, well marked walking trails, educational materials, and did I mention the brightest stars outside of Texas? The rangers were cordial and not intrusive. We drifted off to sleep to the distant calls of coyote and hoot owls and woke to birdsong. This will be a destination on our next trip.
What a lovely park! Sites were well maintained level gravel, and roomy, with large trees affording privacy and shade. Restrooms and showers were clean but dated. Lots of room to walk in the park and on a short nature trail. Staff was extremely pleasant and accommodating. When we had problems with the cable hookup the office quickly sent someone to help us resolve the problem. Free coffee was available in the office for early risers. We wished we could have stayed longer and would definitely camp here again.
We called ahead to reserve a site for 5 PM arrival and were told that the office would be closed for a Halloween party. Our site information and a nice welcome note were in the after-hours box as promised. Grassy sites were fairly level and very clean. Despite the large number of families and kids the park was a quiet and pleasant place for us mature adults to spend an evening. The campground is in a lovely area. We would stay here again.
