The park itself is fantastic. Great sites, close to the beach without the expense of those private parks, and close enough to shopping center that grabbing that last minute item you left at home is no problem. The cause of the low review is the camp hostess - she had gone out of her way to reprimand me in front of my children which is in itself completely unprofessional and upsetting, but that it was unfounded was even worse. If you want cheap and near enough to beach, this is the place. But if you like to be treated as a reasonable adult trying to entertain kids on a family vacation - avoid it at all costs! Some things are worth paying extra for!
Great campground close to Research Triangle Park and all Raleigh has to offer. Nice lake with plenty of water sports opportunity. Bathhouses could be cleaner, but I let my standards slide knowing its a State Park facility. Nice family campground.
