The resort continues to be immacuately maintained and the 9 hole golf course is strikingly beautiful and excellent for what is intended (modest fee for use). New features: entry gates installed and functioning, so there's an added level of security, and new clubhouse and mountaintop pool in early stage of construction after many years of waiting. Only problem, construction is halted for now. Owner, Marathon Coach, will decide when to resume progress. This is a friendly environment for visitors even though many one encounters are owners of expensive customized sites and high end coaches. No one makes you feel more or less important based on the value of your coach. At least that's my take after several visits. While children are allowed, this is not a family-style campground by any stretch. You will see very few if any kids around and no playground equipment. Lake Toxaway is remote with limited facilities and shops nearby, but that's part of the charm. We'll be back.

We visited for the weekend to be with our son who is stationed at NAS Pensacola. The location could not be better. Easy access from main and west gates. We recommend the west gate approach if arriving via I-10. Exit #7 and follow signs to Blue Angel Parkway and stay on it right into the base. Campground is within walking distance of the National Museum of Naval Aviation. This first class facility is free and rivals the Smithsonial Air & Space Museum in quality of exhibits. Campground hosts were superb (Debbie). Nice level 40x20 concrete pad. Good clean power and excellent water pressure. Some areas shaded by mature oaks. The Blue Angels practice Tu & Wed when on base. The catch: you must be a vet or have an active duty register you to stay here.

We needed a base location within driving distance of Chicago and this fit the bill. The park is older but well maintained. Very friendly front desk folks and a well stocked store. Lots of shaded sites and good pull-thru lengths. All grass, dirt and gravel with the exception of some premium sites which have concrete pads. This is a busy KOA even though the location is rural. A SuperWalmart is about 3 miles away at the Interstate 57 interchange.

Well run and maintained. Great for an overnight stop. Owner is on site and pays attention. Nice gravel pull-thrus and reasonably level. No need to disconnect your tow unless you want to. Very convenient to Interstate 75 but no road noise. Large pool and well kept. Newer section (north side) is where we stayed. Flat and no trees. Older section has some permanents and is not suitable for larger rigs. Lots of pine trees and hilly. Well stocked store and free popcorn.

This was our first visit to this campground and we plan to return. Very friendly front office and completely adequate sites. It's a small park and lacks certain amenities some people require, namely a pool. The owners are reportedly planning a pool next year. The sites are close, gravel only, and plenty of pull-thrus. Many sites are well shaded and the trees are nicely trimmed. Roadways are a bit narrow but even the largest motorhomes should not have a problem. Very convenient to Interstate 57 (within sight) but new on/off ramp and overpass construction adds to the excitement. Off ramps are open. On ramps are closed, so you detour to the next interchange north to resume Interstate 57 travel north or south. We visited family in the area and used this campground as our home base.
