Wonderful Park Just Outside Great Smoky Mountains National Park
We stayed here for a week in our motorhome. We were in beautiful site #1 on the creek - about 15 feet away. In addition to the RV sites, they have 16 tent sites and 18 cabins from rustic to modern to a group cabin. The owners and their family were very friendly and helpful. The campground is convenient to Bryson City but the campground store handles a large selection of items.
I understand the creek is very popular for tubing during the summer.
We stayed here 4 days in our motorhome.
Getting to the campground from Fayetteville, WV was a slow process due to the mountain roads (WV16 and US60). Many twists and turns with 2 8% downgrades of 3 to 4 miles each but well worth the effort. No problems or worries if you take your time. And truck lanes periodically will allow traffic to pass.
This is really a beautiful area. It is also coal mining country so if you don't know anything about coal, visit the Exhibition Coal Mine in Beckley just a few miles away or drive on up US60 toward Charleston.
As this is coal country, expect the trains that run along the river here on the opposite bank but they did not keep us awake.
Also nearby is the New River Gorge Bridge. A long, high bridge - 2 Statues of Liberty could be place underneath it atop the Empire State Building with 20 feet to spare.
The people running this campground are friendly and helpful.
Cell phone was good but not great on Verizon and free WiFi was excellent.
We stayed here in our motorhome for 4 nights. We did not spend a lot of time in the park as we were here to visit Washington, D.C. and our oldest grandson who is station nearby.
This is a very large, beautiful park just off IH66. The traffic on the Interstate did not bother us but you could hear it.
They have large pull through and back in sites with full hookups. a few sites we saw could prove challenging to get a rig level.
Cell service was good. WiFi is not available.
At the time we were there, they were decorating for Christmas with lighted displays over the roads and along side the roads coming into the campground. Would loved to have been there when they turn them on November 1st.
Going in to the park, as you cross IH66 on the overpass, your GPS may direct you to turn left but this will lead you to the Special Events area and shooting center. The campground is on the road straight ahead a little over a mile.
We stayed here in our motorhome traveling from New Hampshire to the Washington, D.C. area. We used this campground as a base for a trip into New York City. The area here also has Sam's Club, Best Buy, Gander Mountain, etc. so it is also an excellent area to do some shopping if needed.
Our GPS took us right to the campground but there are many turns and narrow roads going in so if you are not using a reliable GPS, you really need to look at a good map and plan your trip.
The owner and staff we really friendly and helpful. I understand that sale of the property was pending at the time we were there.
We had a good pull through space in the trees with plenty of space.
Cell signal on Verizon was weak and WiFi was not available.
Many people spend their summer there but they were all friendly and invited us to join in activities.
We stayed here for a month in our motorhome. We used this as a base for enjoying the many attractions in the area as well as a trip to Boston and Maine. The owners of this park are wonderful, friendly people and a delight to be around. Some travelers prefer to be in the Conway area but we like the quiet small town with little traffic.
All sites are pull through and level. Cell service was good as was the provided cable tv. WiFi was good when it was up but it did have times of no signal.
We stayed here 27 days in our motorhome. The main reason for coming here was to say I had fished the Battenkill river but it was a wonderful visit.
Most sites are in the trees although there are some around the field which are in the sun. We saw everything from tents, pop-ups, travel trailers, 5th wheel, large and small motorhomes. This campground is very busy during the summer through Labor Day so you really should make reservations. They do have several overflow sites but we saw many of these filled while we were there.
There are many seasonal sites. The people in those sites come from as far away as Florida to spend the summer. We met many of those people and they treated us like we had been coming there for years. We really felt at home. They even gave me information about where to go and what flies to use in fishing.!!
The people running the office and working around the campground would stop when we were outside and ask if everything was going the way we wanted and then just visit for a while.
The cable TV is not anything to write home about but then we were not there to watch TV - we could stay home to do that.
We highly recommend this campground for a day, several days or a month. It is a beautiful campground in a beautiful and historic area.
We were here for a week in our motorhome. This is a good central location for the museums in Corning and the Bath area. Also convenient to the Finger Lakes area.
Sites are good size grass sites with plenty of room for slideouts and awnings. Many are pull through.
Showers and restrooms are functional but nothing outstanding.
WiFi is free for 8 hours for each day - the 8 hours starts when you log in and renews each 24 hours. Unlimited access is available for $2/day of $12/week.
Cell service is good. Cable was good. No sewer hookup so you need to go in with empty waste tanks.
We were here for a week in our motorhome. This is a wonderful park on the shores of Lake Ontario. Cell service is good. Sites are huge with lots of grass and trees. Close to Niagara Falls and Old Fort Niagara. All sites are back in but extremely easy to get in.
Sites are electric only so you need to go in with empty waste tanks and full water. For tent campers, water is available as several locations throughout the park.
We stayed here for 2 nights in our motorhome. It is a short distance to Lake Erie and a short drive to Erie, PA. WiFi and cell service was good. All full hookup sites are back in while pull throughs are water and electric only. Roads in the park are narrow and windy so take your time. Some noise from traffic on IH 90 but not excessive. Nice lakes in the park for fishing and swimming.
We stayed here for a week in our motorhome. They have excellent rates if you are a member of Escapees, Passport America, etc. Be sure to check the directions on their website as most GPS will not take you to the right place. I did find that the Passport America database is correct on the location.
Be sure your waste tanks are empty going in as there are no sewer hookups.
The entrance road is dusty so take your time. The WiFi is on again off again but when it is on, the speed is good.
Good location to visit Elkhart, IN for RV Museum, various RV manufacturers. Also close to Shipshewana for Amish goods.
