As I have mentioned before - we love ACOE campgrounds. We have stayed at another ACOE before and since this was on the way to our destination we again decided to stay here overnight. Many paved sites overlooking the lake with a gorgeous view. Unfortunately, for us it was pouring rain during our stay this time. Even though we had trees around us we were able to get Verizon Internet and TV satellite. Price reflects Golden Age Passport. During peak season I would definitely recommend reservations.
We love ACOE campgrounds as they give us the basic services we need but yet we aren't paying for amenities we don't use. We have the National Park Pass which gives us half off COE campgrounds so rather than $20/night we paid only $10. We stayed here 2 nights and had a level paved pull through site. Also had decent Verizon 4G Internet service. The waterfront sites are very nice, but we chose not to stay in those as too shady and wouldn't be able to get satellite TV.
This was just an overnight stay for us and we paid $30 for 30-amp service as we only needed the basics. It is $35 for 50 amp. The pull-thru sites are in full sun, level, and very easy access. The staff was very friendly. I would stay here again if in the area.
We stayed here for a week at a cost of $219 for a pull-thru with full hook-up. All we wanted was a "base" to operate out of to see the sights of Asheville. For that, it served us well as very close to everything. However, there are many drawbacks to this place. First off, very small and narrow roads within the campground itself. Lucky for us we were on the end and it was easy for us to get into our pull-thru site. With a 40' it would be hairy trying to back into any site. Campground not well maintained and there are several seasonal junky sites.
We love Army Corps of Engineer campgrounds. They are always near water, always scenic, and always quiet. We can live comfortably for a week with no hookups so we are very content in this type of setting. Acorn COE is very picturesque and just about any site will have a nice view. The area is abundant with wildlife. We had deer come through our campsite and saw turkeys numerous times. The nightly rate is $16 but with the Golden Age National Park Passport it is 50% off, so cost us $8 a night. We camped here with another couple and we had adjoining sites. We enjoyed many a campfire in our 5 day stay here.
We always stay here when we come to Vegas. Yes, it is basically a big parking lot but it meets our needs very well. Walking distance to many casinos, FHU, and extremely reasonable rate. The city noise is prevalent but we stay about 6 weeks when we come and eventually it becomes "white noise". Security is very prevalent and we will see them 6-7 times a day on drive-through. Our only recommendation is that there would be a security gate to the campground...sometimes we do see vehicles drive in the campground who are promoting their RV repair work or other vehicles that do not belong in the campground.
