This was our first time to PL and we had a great time. We were with a group of 5 families. The kids had an absolute blast. The park was quite empty this past weekend (we were surprised) and that allowed for some more wide spread running and playing on all the empty sites around us, still keeping them within site and yell distance when needed. The ocean was fantastic, and while I personally did not make it to the pool, the family said it was great. Water a tad on the warm side, but apparently the pool was in great shape. Some of the on-site cabana things are in rough shape but mostly they were fine. We had one of the "blue" sites closer to the ocean with the cement pad and it was great. However, they DO NOT know how to send you in to park properly with a bigger rig! The streets are tight and if it had been full, there is no way we would have been able to make the turn to park. The guy beside us had the right idea to drive all the way around and back up so he could come in properly. The staff need some education on how to park a camper when NOT using a tractor. You need space to turn!! All in all a great weekend and we'd go back.
Great time at New Bern KOA! Our site was spacious and good grass for kicking the soccer ball. We didn't have the concrete pad sites which would have been slightly more desirable just due to the dust factor! Campfires OK! Hay rides for kids, great playground. Nice big fields with a fenced off leash dog area too. We're already booked to go back in July!
