Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We learned a Great deal in the RV'ing world by going to this RV Campsite. Reviews posted here lack a ton of info that you need to know if you have a "Big Rig" Having said that, I will give you the Bad & to be fair, the Good. The Good! 1. Friendly Staff 2. Very adequate Store at camp 3. Landscape (Grass) well maintained The Bad! 1. NOT Big Rig Friendly. There is a Lack of Back up & swing Room due to the Pine Trees at most sites in Section "T". DO NOT rely on the staff here (on phone or there) to help you pick a site if you have a Large Rig. (our 5th Whl & Truck is over 60') There are 100's of Lg Pine trees in section T. (The Wagon Wheel) MANY of them are just inches off the Rd and the Rds in this section are tight turns. As promised, our site WAS long enough. But what they failed to tell us (& you) was that many (not all) of these sites don't have enough "swing" room to back in. Even SOME "pull through's" lack enough swing room to get OUT because of all the Many Pine Trees right off the drive. Only way we were able to back in was to use the vacant site across from us. While attempting to back in, our 5th wheel got off of pavement 4 " causing my rig to lean to one side almost up against one the many trees right off the road. 2. Due to so many tree's, most of the sites will not get TV OR Satellite, or Phone or Data service. (we were able to Text) 3. A TON of people. (if you objective is to "get away from it all", this isn't the place. 4. Sites WAY too close 5. Golf carts EVERYWHERE. Everyone is obsessed with Golf carts at the Campground??? 6. Kids Everywhere. I know,,, this sounds Bad! We Love kids, but our kids are grown & my wife is a Elem Teacher. The last thing she wants to be around on Vac is Kids. I would highly suggest going anytime other that School Breaks or Summer Vacation. In conclusion, if you have a Short (35'or shorter)T.T. Coach or 5th whl, you'll be fine. Anything Longer, you might be in for a Major headache. We camped at Hillman Ferry Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
