It's Like Fireworks

Another nice stay... Love being so close to the water, and the use of the amenities at the Ramada... Nice pool also here in the park, warm and relaxing... Enjoyed the fireworks display that they do on Wednesday nights at the beach but you can see them from the park and they only last about ten minutes... This is our second time staying here (refer to my March review)... Just as nice second go around


Wonderful FamCamp

You need the club card to stay here, meaning retired military or active duty or reserves. Air Force Bases always have nice facilities. This was a small base, but it did not disappoint--- especially at $20 per night for full hook-ups and basic cable. The FamCamp was on the end of base, near a softball complex and a golf course. I was able to get a nice 15 mile bike ride in with little traffic. The sites were paved and spacious with interior gravel roads. There was a large pond (with kayak rentals) that had swings and was scenic. The PX and Commissary were nearby, as well. We love being able to stay at places such as this. This was definitely a nice overnighter for us.


Just as Good on Round 2

This was our second stay at The Grand Ole RV Resort. As I stated in an earlier review, the hospitality is what makes this place a 5! This is a family run business, and the owner lives above the office. You just won't find more genuine people anywhere else. They are caring, compassionate, and are constantly making improvements to the property. They have live entertainment 3 nights a week and karaoke on Saturday nights. It is an authentic Nashville experience. It's only 15 minutes to downtown, just off I-65, and there's a restaurant called the Chef's Market a couple of miles away that boasts the #1 caterers in Nashville. We won't stay anywhere else when visiting the area.


Just Keep Driving!

We were ready to get off the road. We had called a handful of other places that had decent reviews and were a little further off I-65 than we wanted to go for an overnight. Plus we wanted to stay hooked up with our Jeep, and other places could not accommodate that request. Then we discovered this place. It had no reviews, but we thought, "How bad could it be?" We called ahead, told them we were 64' long total and wanted to keep our tow connected. They said they had an 85' pull- thru. NOT EVEN CLOSE! When we arrive, the woman meets us (notice I didn't say "greets" us) and proceeds to tell us we may want to unhook our Jeep. WHAT??? Then she makes me walk in the pouring rain to check out the site. WARNING! WARNING! WARNING! She asks,"Oh so he's a new driver?" Me,"um no." Woman,"So this is a new rig?" Me,"We've had it a year. We have been RV'ing for 14 years. This isn't our first rodeo. We wanted to stay connected because we are leaving early in the morning." The roads were narrow and the turns into the sites were 90 degrees. Then she yelled at my husband because he didn't make his turn in the grass. I told her that we weigh over 40k pounds and it's wet and raining and we are not putting our wheels in her grass. The only good news is that it was $20. If you are a smaller RV, it is tolerable. However, it does not appear that they get very many travelers. Plus one of the residents greeted us and told my husband that the lady was cranky but they tolerate her. She doesn't act like she's smiled in years. Personally, I wish we had just found a Walmart and overnighted in their parking lot!


Crockery Creek

This RV Park is under new ownership, as of the last 2 years. I don't know what the park was like before but I think this park will eventually be a 4/5 star park.

There is a welcome station as you enter. The park is gated, although they didn't use it and it's not really needed. There are these festive Palm trees (fake of course) that light up at night at the entrance. It is in a beautiful setting. It sits on a creek and has a gazebo. The office/store has a variety of supplies. It has clean facilities, laundry, bathhouse, and a banquet hall. The park also has a pond that appears treated for swimming and a little beach area. Additionally, the park boasts a pool, sand volleyball court, and the nicest basketball court I've found at any park. Plus, the park is huge!

The interior roads and sites are gravel. The sites are very spacious and long. The only problem is that the utilities at some of the sites are unusually far away from the site. We had our rig backed up all the way to the back of the site. We couldn't park in the center of the site; rather we had to park as far to the edge of the side where the utilities were. Our electrical cord barely reached and we ended up buying some sewer extensions from one of the work campers. The guy had just bought them and was very nice to offer them to us. The park didn't have cable or wifi. They also did not give us any instructions, such as trash pick-up, no brochure, and they did not escort us to our site. However, they did drive us around in the golf cart to pick our site.

There were quite a few RVs that were there for the long haul, but they had well maintained RVs and sites. Some of the sites had concrete pads and patios. Those sites were random and appeared to be the sites of long term residents. All sites had fire pits. The park certainly was popular over the weekend with the locals. We were in the area to visit family/friends. It was conveniently located for us. The rate was reasonable. We were well pleased with Crockery Creek and will stay here whenever visiting the area.


Nice Overnighter

I would give this 3.5 stars. It's better than my normal 3 ratings but not quite enough for my normal 4 rating. However, it is a very nice campground. It has great curb appeal and the owners are friendly. It appears that this may be a happening place that locals bring their families to for a weekend get-away. They had a huge pond with floatation equipment for the kids to play on, a beach area, playground, front porch with rockers, paved interior roads, clean laundry and bath facilities, cabins, and fire pits/patios at some sites. Many of the sites are grass or gravel. There is also a 180 degree turn into the campground if coming from Exit 28. We chose to play it safe and get off at Exit 20 so we could turn left and avoid that angle with our 43 foot rig that is towing a 4-door Jeep. They tell you about it when you make your reservation. I would not hesitate to overnight here again.


Fancy That... In Fancy Gap!

What a great area... a couple of miles from I-77 and literally just off the Blue Ridge Parkway! If TRAVELING IN A BIG RIG, GET OFF OF I-77 AT EXIT 8; FOLLOW THE SIGN TOWARDS THE BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY THAT BRINGS YOU TO A T WITH HWY 52; TURN RIGHT ONTO 52 SOUTH AND GO ABOUT A MILE; THEN TURN RIGHT (before you get to the stone bridge) AND GO TOWARDS BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY BUT TURN RIGHT IN THE CURVE BEFORE YOU GET TO THE BRP; GO ABOUT 200 YARDS AND KOA IS ON LEFT! We travel in a Class A Diesel with a tag axel and made the mistake of listening to our Rand McNally, which made us get off at Exit 1 (campground hosts said that this happens to a lot of big rigs). We ended up on a steep & curvy road, SR 620. We stopped at one point to assess the situation. A local couple saw our demise and stopped to talk with us. They said if we "made it around that curve back there" that we should have no problem the rest of the way. (They said many RVs get hung up on that curve and have to be towed out.) They drove ahead to provide caution to oncoming traffic, as the road was very narrow. Plus they called a friend to make sure of the height of a bridge we needed to go under. When we drove under the bridge, they stopped and told us to go left and that would put us on the BRP (Rand McNally wanted us to take the next right... Grrrr). We then went about 8 miles and made our way to the KOA from the BRP. We now believe the reason that the GPS in our rig took us this way is because 52 South states no traffic over 8 tons allowed. However, if you turn towards the BRP before the rock bridge, you will not hit the downhills.

The Fancy Gap KOA was nestled in the mountain and very well maintained. It is a beautiful property with a swimming pool and fishing pond, nice laundry and bath, and nice owners. If we ever go back, we will request a back in site at the top of the hill. There is a lot of room up there and they are level. They also have larger patios with umbrellas. We were in a pull-thru site, #26, but when it came a massive downpour our electrical connection between the surge protector and plug nearly became submerged. Luckily, we saw it. Site #26 is down the hill and you take on all of the water during a rain. We would not hesitate to spend more time here!


Best RV Park in Fayettville Area

This is by far the best RV Park we have found in the Fayettville area, and we say this after having stayed other places. The park is very well laid out and well maintained. The park offers paved interior roads, hard packed gravel at the sites- most come with a fire pit-, spacious sites while still offering privacy, 2 pools, 2 laundry facilities and bath facilities, propane, recreation areas, and an open field where they have concerts, etc. They also have a wooded trail that is about a half mile long. There are quite a few permanents that stay here (mostly because of being military) but they put them in a separate section and they are all friendly and their RVs are well maintained. They also offer cabin rentals. The only complaint I have (and I almost bumped it down a star because of it) is that the manager's son and his friends zip around here on their motorcycles with no regard for guests. They often don't wear helmets, pop wheelies, ride side ways on the motorcycles, glare at you as they go by, ride up behind cars, and ride on the trail that says "no motorized vehicles". I reported it to management not knowing it was her son. It's a safety issue for the kids that can't be more than 6th grade and it's a safety issue for the guests. Other than that, it's a very nice place to stay and even though it is right off of I-95, it is kind of off the beaten path with plenty of road biking in the area.


Authentic Nashville Experience

Let me be upfront that the absolute reason this RV Park scores 5 stars is without a doubt due to their customer service and genuine hospitality. To give them a bad review means you didn't get to know them (and I'd question your personality) because they are hands down, bar none, the absolute best people I have met anywhere!

We travel in a Winnebago Tour and don't generally stay more than a month in any one place. However, I had to come back to Nashville for unexpected medical reasons and was frantic because we couldn't get in any of the three over off Music Valley Drive. When I called here, they didn't have room for me either but when in my desperation I told them my story, Tommy (the owner) found a spot for us. They truly had compassion! His girlfriend even made me a homemade banana pudding.

The whole family is involved in running this business. The owner lives above the office and is always accessible. His daughter is the manager. His son comes up on Saturday nights and sets up karaoke. Wednesday thru Friday nights they have live entertainment. They also have campfires quite often. There are some local musicians that stay in the RV Park, some of which have played at the Grand Ole Opry, some that play out at Nashville venues like Tootsie's. It is true that there are a few people that live in here permanently, but the majority of the park is travelers visiting the area. Rigs come and go. I should know as I was at this park for about 7 weeks and witnessed it all. On Saturday night alone, they had 20 RVs come in. You may see a pop-up camper or encounter a Prevost... And everything in between!

The facilities are well maintained, decent store with the necessities, good restaurant (highly recommend the pizza), 4 washing machines & dryers, and a nice covered front porch with rocking chairs and a covered patio around back. I have to mention Randy and Glen. They are work campers and great guys. But give them a hard time and tell them that Pam told you to!

Last but not least, there is a set of two train tracks behind the property... And so you better like trains! I do! It doesn't bother most people in there. Some of the sites are close together and it is all gravel. I'll admit that if I were normally rating this place, it would be either a 3 or 4... However, you can't duplicate genuine care, concern, and hospitality! We have found our home whenever we have the occasion to come to Nashville??


Okaloosa Island

We stayed here for 3 weeks, as my husband was working at Eglin AFB. It was a very convenient commute. Destin West is all paved and has very nice patios. It's not too big, is laid out nice, no pull thrus. It's located on an inter coastal and has a nice pool. Across the street is a sister property, the Ramada, which allows you access to their pool, lazy river, and gym, plus it is oceanfront. The Crab Trap, etc., are also within walking distance. It surprisingly wasn't terribly crowded either. I felt like it took awhile for the office staff to warm up, but they ended up being friendly and helpful. My only complaints are: 1) if you are parked on the side of The Adventure Zone Amusement Park it can be noisy, 2) I didn't feel they had adequate laundry facilities for the park... There were only 2 washers and 2 dryers, plus for those that use the shower facilities there were only 2 showers... However they were clean. We did enjoy our stay, all things considered.
