This is a Thousand Trails Park. Easy to get to and get around in. Big rig friendly in most cases. They have a good set-up for loading/unloading golf carts. It would be nice if these parks would provide a similar set-up for loading/unloading motorcycles. I was surprised that they did not have many recycling efforts in place, however they did have a aluminum can disposal container in front of the adult lodge. All-in-all, a nice park. We camped at Forest Lake RV Park & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Fifth Wheel.

Great park to stay in. Lots of activities and really enjoy the church service on Sunday. We camped at Forest Lake RV Park & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.

Nice open site. There are many sites that are in the trees. Even though the pools don't open until Memorial Day, it is nice to have an adult pool and a family pool. The club houses are nice and separate for adults and families. There are lots of choices for children. Peace and quiet for adults. Very nice park even though our site was a little unlevel. People were very friendly and helpful. The only drawback we saw was a lot of 30 amp users using the 50 amp sites. We would return.

My husband and I received a "Passport" in the mail to be able to camp at this CG for a weekend. We invited our neighbors, they called in and got a free weekend also. When we arrived on Friday afternoon we were directed to the "Welcome" center where they sent us with a little lady on a golf cart to take us to a site. There were quite a few campers there but she told us when we saw sites that we liked to just blow the horn. She said we could pick any place. We found 2 sites side by side. They have an adult lodge and a family lodge. That was really nice. Th camp store was not open. Easter weekend was going to be the weekend it would open. If you needed anything you had to drive about 2 miles to a store. We were a little disappointed since we scrapbook all of our camping trips. I had taken the camera with us! They do have the "Pioneer Graveyard"...it's a good walk but don't expect much. It is NOT well maintained and there are only about 10 stones and you can only read 2 of them. It would probably be a wonderful place in the summer since there are pools (adult and family) and mini-golf . We camped at Forest Lake RV Park & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Travel Trailer.

Beautiful Preserve, well-maintained. Sections A&B were already closed for the season, so I selected site E-55, which is close to the bathhouse/laundry even though I've got facilities in the pop up. The arrival night shower was fabulous! I know I used more than 6 gallons of water! The sites in this area are bluestone drive/pad, most of which had fire rings and good picnic tables. Full-hookup sites. 50 amp service is available, and one can get a 50 amp site via the ranger station at a cost of $2.00 per night. Propane refill was $2.69 per gallon. It was nice to see that they also have a group camping area and horses are allowed! There are several trails, one of which has a 'pioneer graveyard' dating back to about 1850-52. Wal-mart Supercenter about 13 miles north in Mocksville, and a Food Lion Grocery Store about 6 miles in the other direction towards Lexington, NC. Childress Winery is also near Lexington. The Tarheel Q (eatery) is about 1-1/2 miles from the preserve entrance. All facilities in the preserve are well maintained and personnel were very nice. There was a craft sale while I visited, and the doggie crafts were great as were the oil paintings of beautiful mountains. We camped at Forest Lake RV Park & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Tent Trailer.

We received a "free camping" offer for this campground and decided to drive through before committing to a whole weekend. We drove around for about 15 minutes today and were not very impressed with this facility. There were quite a few camp sites that were weedy (3-foot weeds that would have taken several weeks to grow). We didn't see anyone staying in the cabins -- completely empty. I think this could be a really nice campground if the owners decided to invest time, effort and money into it. We arrived around noon and only saw a few teens waling towards the pool -- very few adults were out and not one child that we could see. The campsites looked large and there were several pull-throughs. We might give it a few years and go back to see if things have improved -- but would not stay there in it's current condition. We camped at Forest Lake RV Park & Camping Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Motorhome.
