Upon arrival, my husband needed the men's facilities. Well, it gave us a bad impression immediately!! The men's bathroom was disgustingly filthy. It smelled terrible and the toilet was not fastened to the floor. The floors were in dire need of cleaning. It would help if there had been regular cleaning and maintenance. I had called to make a reservation and was asked to hold while the camp employee checked in a customer. Not a problem. However, when we arrived, we waited 10 minutes while she... Read More

However, when we arrived, we waited 10 minutes while she took a reservation on the phone. Go figure. The camping site was a pull through and was overall nice and well shaded. The site was level and easy to get into and out of. The park appeared quiet and was secluded from the busy interstate. However, We will never stay here again!!!

I took my family for a small little vacation and was completely amazed by how nice the park is, its a smaller park but it is just perfect if you don't want the hustle and bustle of a huge park. There was plenty to do and the kids absolutely loved all the craft projects. There ranger station proved to be a life saver because my husband forgot some things while we were packing. I even got to meet the marketing lady and she was so sweet with the kids and even used our photo for the facebook page! (with... Read More

This is a nice campground: surrounded by trees, nice level sites. But it's very close to train tracks. Every couple of hours, day and night, a train comes through blowing its horn. We got NO sleep.

My family stayed at this facility due to evacuation from Hurricane Florence on Sept 12-14 we were 4 adults and 3year old . I have been camping for 30 years and this was the worst experience in a campground. The campsites are filthy and the staff made our stay even worse nasty and unprofesssional. I would not recommend this campground to anyone .

The pot holes at the entrance gave me a clue as to what we would encounter. The abandoned campers an un-mowed grass around them just topped it off. This place needs a serious facelift.

We had a very nice stay, the facilities were clean and well groomed. The staff and owners were very friendly and helpful. We had a pull-through gravel site with well groomed grass and the electric was more than adequate. We will return.

This campground was terrible. Gravel roads, cramped sites, poor worn equipment. Trains run next to the campground day and night. The water faucet near our site leaked all night and we woke up to a large puddle of water outside our door.

Very Clean and Friendly Campground. We stayed one night on our way to NY and one night on our way back to FL. Will stay there again this summer.
