I have only great things to say about Daddy Joe's. We had a ton of fun here over Labor Day weekend. We were supposed to arrive on Friday but tropical storm Hermine delayed our arrival until Saturday, as was the case with numerous guests. Daddy Joe graciously extended Monday's checkout time until 5:00 to make up for it. Wow! That really meant a lot for them to ensure their guests' satisfaction, especially since we didn't ask or expect it!
There's seriously so much to do here. Water attractions, basketball, mini golf, so many stocked ponds for fishing, a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner at very reasonable prices, planned activities for the kids, an ice creamery, a gift shop/camp store and more!
Our sites (38 & 39) were nicely spaced with concrete pads and a well maintained yard. No shade (there are shaded sites as you enter the park but they're further away from the amenities) so we caught the afternoon/evening sun on the patio side. But with our screen shade we were quite comfortable with low humidity & mid 80 degree temps.
We're planning a group trip for Memorial Day 2017 with RV friends and will be staying in one of the quad sites (so cool!) and others that will be staying in the tent sites and cabins. It's so awesome to have found a place that keeps the kids so busy and has accommodations for us and all our friends!!
Daddy Joe's is my new favorite! They really know what it takes to plan and maintain a campground to make for a positive camping experience!! We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Daddy Joe's in a Travel Trailer.
45 minute drive to Myrtle Beach!

Overall it was a pleasant 2 night stay. Sites are VERY close together. Our site (14) was on a row of long term campers. It was level and shaded but very narrow so no room at all to spread out.
The campground is older and dated but quiet and seemed well maintained for the most part. The roads throughout the campground could definitely use some fresh gravel. As well, the gravel at our site was sparse and there were some muddy spots to maneuver around.
There are plenty of fun amenities for the kids. We used the pool (nice & big), jumping pillow, game room, fishing pond, playground and basketball court.
The reasons I didn't rate above average were because of how close we were to the next camper, how cramped our site was and the condition of the roads. We camped at Midway Campground Resort (formerly Statesville East I-40 Winston-Salem in a Travel Trailer.

Rented cabin K80 w/out bath. Comfy, clean & sufficient. Plenty of fun things for kids but the rest of the park was just OK. Camper sites are small & close together. I would advise against using the smaller bathhouses by the cabins. They're seriously disgusting. I literally gagged when I walked in. Musty, humid, no a/c, moldy shower doors. Would've given more stars if the bathhouses had been clean. Other KOA's have exceeded our expectations. This one did not. We camped at Myrtle Beach KOA in a Travel Trailer.
Broadway at the Beach is great for dining, shopping & family fun. Myrtle Beach State Park is our favorite spot to spend a day at the beach.

This is a nice, laid back and peaceful campground. We loved our large patio site. There's a decent amount of space between the other sites. It's a short walk to the dock/pier and there are swings to sit in to enjoy the view. The kids enjoyed the playground, jumping pillow and basketball court.
We made the short drive over the bridge into historic downtown New Bern and visited the shops and tourist spots. There's an evening ghost walk tour that's more historical than scary but it was enjoyable nonetheless.
We enjoyed our stay at New Bern KOA and would visit again! We camped at New Bern KOA in a Travel Trailer.
