We stayed for one night and then stayed another night on our return trip south. This is a quiet campground laid out on a spacious property that offers different views and conveniences. I needed a quick in and out site so I got reliable water, electric, and cable and level gravel with no sewer hook up. This is a destination campground with plenty of outdoor things for kids to get involved with. It was not difficult to get to from I-81 but not right off the exit either. We made reservations both times and had no problems. A local Italian restaurant delivers to the park office and that worked out great. The staff is friendly and the place is well maintained. I know some people like to bad mouth KOA's but I think I got a quality product that was worth what I paid and did not include any ugly surprises. I will stay here again because I will continue to drive up north on I-81 at least once a year.
They have a computerized reservation system that works well. The office is staffed by friendly people who know they are in the hospitality industry. We picked this place because it was easy on and off from I-95. The sites are well spaced and very clean with a level concrete pad. Full hook ups include reliable 50 amp service and free wifi at the site. Trash pick up is also at the site. The seasonals are located towards the rear of the park and management seems to make sure they do not accumulate to much clutter. We would stay hear again as it is the perfect stop over place from South Florida. While it is the area of the Airport we did not hear anything.
This is a county park that is well maintained and has an on site manager who works afternoons. They accept reservations for no more than two weeks so you won't see any seasonals or temporary workers staying here. Other than a hiking tail there is no other activities. It is quiet but in the summer there are a fair share of mosquitoes. The 50 amp service proved not to be reliable as the voltage dropped below 110 and my surge protector would shut service down entirely until it came up. TV is limited to a few channels with the signal strength to broadcast this far. We would stay hear again when in the area as it is the best value this close to the metropolitan NY area.
This is a large destination campground with lots to do. It is well staffed by friendly people who know their business. Its the first time I've actually seen the pool, hot tub and beach staffed with lifeguards at a private resort. Most of the interior roads are dirt with some paved roads with heavier traffic. It is an older campground that shows its age but most of the campgrounds in the north east are no better. The common grounds are well maintained but management could do a better job of getting some of the seasonals to clean their sites a little better. We stayed here for a month at the rate of $725 in season but the daily rate is over $40. The electric is only 30 amps which was a problem during the summer. The voltage tended to drop off during days with high heat. Cable TV in an internal analog only system with a poor signal on the lower channels. The Wi-Fi is a hot spot at a pavilion. The maintenance people indicated the owner is thinking of upgrading a portion of his park to 50 amps. If he does he will be one of the few parks in the area that would accommodate class A's with two A/C's.
The park is layed out in an irregular loop pattern on a slight hill. The interior road is paved and the sites are gravel or concrete pad with the electric and cable on a pedestal. The water is clean and great tasting. The cable is only 6-7 channels with poor reception, but we did not come to the smokies to watch TV. The electric is reliable and strong. The pool and hot tub are new, clean and inviting. Landscaping, which includes rock beds, flower beds and other decorations are meticulously maintained. When a facility looks and feels this good the customers tend to behave accordingly. This is a family friendly place and a destination campground with lots to do in the area. The owners live on site and should love to come back.
We made a reservation at this spot because it was easy access from I-26. We only stayed one night. The internal roads and sites were gravel and dirt over hilly terrain which got muddy when it rained. Most of the sites were occupied by workers in the area. We never met anyone associated with the park. We found our name and site assignment on a board on the front porch of the locked office and then proceeded to our pull through. I found the restrooms and laundry to be clean but housed in small buildings that need to be maintained. there is a nice pond and playground but this is not a destination campground. We found it was great for one night and would stay here again when in the area.
We camped here one week past the peak season. The entrance was narrow to enter from the street and gave an unkept appearance. No one staffed the place. A chalk board message told people to tuck $40 cash with a filled out registration form in a crack in the door and go find a spot yourself. No contact number was offered. The facilities were shut down but who swims in Ct in October anyway. Mud was everywhere. There were nice hiking trails but they were short and that's all there is to do. The water was on, and the electricity worked, but there was very poor TV reception on our antenna. The trash dumpster had not been emptied in a long time and it looked like the seasonal residents cleaned out their places before they left. I would never recommend this place to anyone.
