This CG really deserves all the good reviews they receive. It has to be one of the cleanest, well maintained CGs we've stayed in. We used most of the facilities; nice clubhouse, mini-golf, pool tables & the pickleball courts looked very new. During our 6-day stay they had a value priced dinner, 3 free waffle breakfasts, and a hosted happy hour. Many of the permanents attend the events, but everyone mixed and there was no "us/them" kind of feeling that you can run into some places. Site was level, wifi strong and good cable. Water pressure is great. We camped at Raleigh Oaks RV Resort in a Motorhome.
There is a BP gas station & little convenience store, Ronnies, about a 1/3 mile down the road that had diesel at 15 cents a gallon less than other stations along I-95. Very easy in/out with a tow.

At check in they have been requiring campers to pay for a background check ($20). It doesn't state this on web or anywhere else. I refused, but they will accept some documents (eg carry permit) in lieu of. After this and being told all the restrictions I really thought the CG would be better setup. Instead it varied tremendously from very nice maintained rigs to derelict RVs that look abandoned for years. also, the only rule enforced was the speed limit. My site was in the 'premium' area. It had 6in deep ruts and exposed tree roots and the concrete pad was broken into about 40 pieces. All the hookups were conveniently located and wifi while slow was a strong signal. One neighbor was a nice coach and the other had a permanent old 5th wheel with 2 golf carts (one broken), 2 large trucks, extra cars when visitors came, a large enclosed trailer and stuff everywhere. Fortunately all the facilities were in good shape and lots of activities. (the Tiki Hut is a hangout for permanents) We would consider staying here again because of the facilities and the great group of campers we met. Apparently the CG has just sold again. Maybe some cleanup will be done. We camped at Wekiva Falls RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Think old time drive-in theater and you have a good idea of what the CG is like. Gravel everywhere interspersed by hookups in multiple rows. Adequate room to extend slides, but that is it. My site was very level and a pull through long enough to accomodate 38' rig & tow. Very new electric hookups and water was heated for winter. Sewer pipe is not threaded. Find a board & rocks to hold down sewer connection. Those that didn't contributed to a pungent aroma. Definitely not a place I'd vacation, but perfect for what we needed - close to highway, overnighter. Pulling in & out was easy. This seems to be a popular use as at least 20 other RVs came in same night and were gone by morning. The owner/staff were very nice and there is a nice walk by the river for exercise (when not flooded). Zero amenities. We camped at Tri-State RV Park in a Motorhome.
Be careful coming off the exit ramp from I-84 East. The intersection you cross (there is a light) has a tremendous heave in the center and dips at both sides. I crossed at about 3mph and drug bottom. Try taking it at an angle. You may piss off other drivers, but who hasn't been there before? You have to cross the same intersection to get back on I-84.

Stopped here for 2 nights in a Class A. We'd been on the road 2 days escaping the snow and this made a great stop to rest. The GPS (resort address) wanted to take us south to the first actual SC exit off I95 and then back 5 miles up 301, but came off at exit 1A (border of NC/SC) per their instructions and it was only a few hundred yards off the exit to take a left into the CG. Had site 176: level and a pull through long enough for the RV & tow. The pad was asphalt and all hookups were well placed. Sites aren't real tight, but maybe only 20' wide from your septic to neighbors. What was really nice was the second water faucet and permission to wash the RV on site. Just ran the tv on antenna, but reception was great. Didn't use any of the restaurants, but did have a walk thru the stores and facilities. All what you'd expect from other reviews. I did notice the bath houses seemed ADA compliant. Definitely will add this to our stop list when traveling I95. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.
