One of the nicer campgrounds we've stayed at. Could use some cleaning in laundry mat. Staff is friendly. Quiet. Beautiful lake on site. Maybe feed the ducks. Two huge pools and a hot tub. Closed for the season. Adult lodge as well as family area to hang out. Lots of books to swap. Games n stuff for the kids in the family area. WiFi is a bit sketchy. We have a hotspot so that's helpful. Unlike a lot of thousand trails you don't get to pick your site. Already assigned upon your arrival. Pleased with our site. There is a store I haven't been inside. Restrooms I haven't been in either since I have one in my RV. There is a restaurant that was only open on the weekends. There are cabins down by the lake. They look Cozy. Overall great campground. Great for families or a grown up getaway. I would stay here again. - RLKeller

This TT campground is a contradiction in many ways. The office staff and manager are exceptionally welcoming and friendly. However, the Rangers seem to be overworked and frustrated. When we checked in, the Ranger was too busy to escort us to our site, A-35. Once we arrived at our site, we were confronted with a metal sign on our faucet that indicated Not for Potable Water. We arrived late in the day, so I contacted the Ranger at the entrance gate via phone and she said she would stop by shortly. We waited an hour for a No Show, at which point I drove up to the Entrance. The Ranger indicated she had been so busy that she forgot. The ranger did not believe the sign I described to her, even after showing a smartphone photo. It was a Friday evening. I asked if the camp manager was available and she said the camp manager had just left. I asked if a maintenance supervisor could be contacted, and she replied she could not immediately get a hold of the Maint. Supv. by phone; but would call us back when she did. She never called back. The next morning, I went over to the office and asked to speak with the Manager, who listened in disbelief and the only explanation was that an incorrectly labeled batch of faucet heads had been shipped to the campground and installed by mistake. She assured me that the water was safe and contacted the M Supv. to meet me at my site. When the M Supv. arrived, he was also in disbelief, assured me that the water in the campground was pure and that an incorrectly labeled faucet had been placed on the water outlet. I was offered a different site, but we had already set up camp and did not want to waste another 90 minutes breaking and making camp. Watch Out for the Speed Bumps and Check the Water Spigot! I suggested that someone be tasked to drill/sand off the Not for Potable Water label. We stayed 14 days and no one dropped by to do so. - michaelsutton

We had to book same day as the RV park we previously booked lost our reservation. We called local number here and got a recording to call 800 number. Waited 20 minutes on hold and it took another 20 to get it booked which included the agent calling the park and confirming all our info. We were told when we got there the "ranger" would have our info. Not true - he had no clue and it took him 1/2 hour to get paperwork done (we had already paid so he had to make two trips to the office to call head office I assume) Took us to a spot - it was now 6 p.m. After unhooking and settling in we realized the electricity didn't work. No one answered the phone and it's too far to walk back to the station. Kind neighbors drove my husband down. Ranger comes out...yep...he says no electricity. He leaves again...comes back in 20 minutes and leads us to another spot which thankfully worked. The place is mostly permanents, very hilly and roads are full of pot holes. Coming back the next day we were stopped by a resident who insisted we listened to his sales pitch on Thousand Trails. Because we were visiting family we ended ups staying 4 days....not a good experience. - Catsinatrailer

Overall the park was campground was nice. Staff was friendly. They had plenty of wood and ice on hand. Convenient that they had a propane refill too, although I didn’t use it.
Sites in section B were well spaced out, with plenty of room to back in. There was a conveniently places round about so that you can go turn around and come back.
Trash was picked up daily in cans out front of your site. Park was close and fairly big compared to most state parks we have been to, and our kids loved playing on it. During the day the campground was quiet, but at night you could hear the sounds of the interstate. Not terribly loud, but noticeable. The catch and release pond at the back of the park was decent size, but it’s located under massive power lines. You could hear them buzzing while standing there. I honestly got a headache from sticking around to long. Overall the park was nice and conveniently off the interstate. At only 40 minutes from our house it made for a nice getaway. We’ll come back again. - Shanks12

Only stayed here two nights on our way into Charlotte. Awesome Campground, Awesome Staff. Clean, well maintained along with a catch and release fishing pond and swimming pool. Awesome fast WiFi and satellite TV. Our site was 70' long with trees in-between sites. The site was pretty level, not an issue. A & B loop sites are in the trees, C & D loop sites are full sun and close to each other. We enjoyed Cross Winds Family Campground. - Cmorgan

We have stayed here with a group and recently on our own. Great place to be for a group or individual to camp. The meeting room was spacious and clean. The staff and owner are so friendly and helpful. Free Wi-Fi, wonderful pool. Feeling of security because at 10pm they lock the gate. - GMC On The Road Again

We spent two nights here in our 31.5' motorhome as we were traveling south. First, I hope they are able to improve their online reservation system, because it is by far the worst reservation system I've used in the 3 years since buying our motorhome. It was nearly impossible to figure out how to make a reservation. Fortunately, the campground employees are very friendly and helpful. The online website told us that almost every site in the park was reserved for the two mid-week nights we were looking to stay. And when we arrived, every site had a "reserved" sign. But there were maybe only 6 or 8 sites in use! The site that we reserved was not very wide, making backing in a motorhome a little difficult, and it was not level. We had to put one side of the motorhome on blocks before using our levelers so that all wheels were on the ground. We probably would have requested a different site if they didn't look like they were all reserved. We identified about 5 sites in the whole park that MIGHT be more level than the one we have. This is the only reason I give this park only 3 stars. The park itself is heavily wooded with a pretty pond, public park with activities on the other side of the pond, friendly employees and absolutely the cleanest shower houses we've seen in our 2.5 years on the road. It would be 5 stars if they improved the leveling of the sites. By the way, if you are looking for the campground, drive into Dan Nicholas Park and drive all the way down to what looks like the end of the parking lot. Only then will you see signs for the campground. They could use more signage closer to the street because people with large rigs will be hesitant to drive that far into the parking lot for fear that they may have to turn around, and that can be difficult if there's not much room. - BobnLou

Spent one night while visiting relatives in the area. Park was clean and quiet. Facilities were a little dated but very clean. There a a lake which has boat rentals. Looks like a great family place. - Squid701

Great campground. They are very family friendly. Petting zoo for the kids, miniature golf and a basketball court. Pool, clubhouse. Plus at Halloween they have lots of festivities. - GMC On The Road Again

We spent a week there (Had Reservations, but came in on a tow truck)
Accommodations made for our RV and the trailer we were pulling with a site about 100 feet long. We enjoyed our Salisbury vacation stay while getting the RV fixed with recommendations from Carolina Country Campground's owner.
Very quiet & clean campground being rehabilitated by the new owner after previous neglect. He'll make a go of it. Woods, lake, pool playground, store, convention facility, they have it all. We'll stay there again. - Paul Dobbin

This campground is way overpriced. Sites are grass and get very soggy when it rains. WiFi only worked outside our trailer and even that was spotty. There is no cable. Did not use the showers as it would we would have had to walk back to our campsite in the soggy grass. Did look at the restrooms, there were okay. Had planned to stay 2 nights, but changed our minds because of the price. - srqcampers

Horrible park! Check-in was not helpful, site was very unlevel. I was given site 0, which was overgrown. I didn't let my dog outside because of the number of bugs. Campground is not near the lake. I almost left just after I arrived. I would steer clear from this place. - A Chevalier

The good thing I can say is it is "near" the lake, not on the lake, but "near." There a lot of construction workers staying here. It is really noisy between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m., when they all start up their diesel trucks to go to work! - CAMPING SUSAN

We came here based on everyone's comments and pictures of the park on the website. Don't believe what you see! It's not terribly bad, but our spot was incredibly unlevel. The front of our trailer had to be jacked up so high our stabilizer was too short. Right now there are a lot of construction workers here and it's kind of of loud. Looks like it used to be a decent park, but right now I wouldn't suggest families staying here. - BRANDYC

Checking in and setting up on our wonderful site that was given to us was great, but the FREE Internet never worked near our part of the park, lot #36, told the owners about it, said they would reset the routers and if they did it never worked. This is what they advertise first in there brochure and on there website! The full timers here are not too friendly, won't even make eye contact with us. Not coming back!!! - Ecpiratefb1

This is a very lovely, very rustic campground, set on a lake in the mountains. Reminds me of a state park. It is very peaceful and serene. My only complaints are that the drive to the campground and the roads around the campground are very narrow and winding, with a lot of steep hills. Being that the campground is on a mountain, none of the sites are anywhere near level. Manager (Corey) was extremely helpful and friendly. - cherylbrv

We stayed for a long weekend, arriving at noon on Friday. Check in was easy and we were escourted to our site, The site was off the main entrance and sloped down quite a bit. The map lead you to believe there would be a water view and there was a peek of water through the trees. The park was quite and had plenty of trees. It was very peaceful but a little stressful coming in and going out as the access roads were on the narrow side. - tvolk

This was our first time at this hidden gem. Great hospitality from the staff in the office and assisting us to the site. The campground was friendly like a neighborhood and the views were peaceful. The concrete patio and furniture was a great add. Highly recommend and we are returning in May. - Jaretaz

Midway campground & RV Resort check in 3pm and check out 1pm. 4 nights @ $44.67 with a military discount. We needed a fill in spot before hitting our next camp ground, and decided on this campground. Thursday thru Sunday stay, so we hit their Halloween celebration that included an open to the public scary walk in the woods with all the sound effects well into the late night Sat and Sun. The roads thru the park are dirt, mud, very large rocks, uneven and hard to rock and roll thru that we have ever experienced. Our original spot was parallel with the dirt road and as you open your front door you are on the dirt road, the picnic table is across the dirt road. The road is well traveled by rigs and vehicles. So changed spots to one that is on a corner that big rigs are trying to get around, one did not make it as our water spigot was flattened in the process, luckily we were not hooked up to the water. A golf cart directs you to your site. After setting up the first day, our neighbor let the dogs loose literally. 2 huge dogs came over and did their jobs and returned to the other camp site, this went on every day several times a day, called and reported 3 times over the 4 night stay, finally gave up. I think they called them as the person was yelling outside about it but continued to let them run off leashes. Lots for kids to do, playground, jumping bag and pool when the season supports. A small pond has a flock of friendly ducks on it that approach you for a snack, fishing allowed. Many permanent and seasonal sites, the rest of us are intermingled. The bathrooms were dirty with a pair of shoes and clothing for 3 nights, but it was a weekend with a lot of people. Bath house door codes did not work as the doors were not locked. cons: highway noise, Rules not enforced with pets, rough roads, some work needs to be put into this park to bring it back up to an acceptable level. pros: lots for kids to do, pond with ducks. Would not return again. Not a lot to do in the area. - hiker13

We've stayed here a number of times over the past 10 years. Sometimes overnight passing through, sometimes for a few days, & once for a 4 month stay. Long-standing family owned CG, former KOA now private again. Great activities for kids. Pool, putt-putt, lake / fishing, game room. Small laundry. Some long-timers and many local families come for weekends. Pool also open to local public. Some sites are very shady; some water view. Reliable electric/water/sewer. Bumpy hard-packed gravel roads throughout. Staff is friendly & helpful (despite other reviews you might see - maybe he was having a tough day. True, no excuse, but don't let it keep you away). Nice location east of Statesville - which has every chain restaurant you can imagine. Great ice cream in CG store. We keep going back - so would definitely stay here again. - User2235

I had a reservation and a site I had used before. They sold it to a seasonal and gave me B35. The utilities for this site are on the wrong side, so I had to drive into the very uneven site. The weeds had not been mowed so there were a LOT of mosquitoes. My EMS kept shutting power off due to low voltage. Maintenance came out and said it was a problem inside my camper. Never had another problem any place else until here. Roads are very narrow and rough. Sites are tight. Lots of seasonal/annuals and golf carts continuously riding around, even both ways on the one way roads. A lot of unkept sites. Don't worry, I will not be back. - CBJ-Pitmastet

We booked a spot at Lake Myers for our first test run with our 5th wheel. I noted on the online booking that we were first time campers. Glad I did this, the manager called us to say that the original spot they were going to put us in was a great space near the pools but may be tricky to get into. We were then put into spot D-17. This was a great spot that allowed us to pull-through since no one was in the spot beside us. Our spot was at the bottom of a hill, so it was a bit hard to level it perfectly. The roads and campsites are definitely tight to maneuver, especially with an F-250 and 30ft 5er.
I'd say at least 85% of the park are permanent sites. The girl at the gate was very nice checking us in, but none of the neighbors spoke to us at all. The men's bathhouse in the D section was clean (according to my husband) and the pool was nice. There was always a good mix of music playing at the pool, but not enough chairs. The pool wasn't very crowded while we were swimming, but every seat was saved with a towel or goggles so we had to just put our towels on the ground. Never had any issues getting in with the gate code.
We drove by the original site we were supposed to be in and realized we made the best decision to move. Due to it being a one way road with an odd angle to the side road, we had no idea how we would've gotten our camper down there. Overall, it was ok for a first time experience, I just wish we could've been closer to some other weekend campers instead of the permanent residents so we may have been able to talk with some other folks. We couldn't find any free wifi and did not pay to use the park's service so I cannot say whether it's worth the cost.
Would not recommend for larger RV's. The sites are entirely too cramped to accommodate large vehicles. - Lcdsp911

I checked in on a Sunday and they have a box at the gate where you pick up your reservation papers with site number and the code to get in gate.But it was not there and you cant get ahold of anyone.I knew my site so someone that stays there let me in.Poor management! So when I talked to the manager about all the issues I was having she got defensive and aggressive.Can you say unprofessional.And maintenance was getting frustrated at me cause their breakers kept blowing and acting like its my fault. I have never stayed in a place where the people who stay there are more helpful than the people who get payed to help you cause you are the customer.And that place stinks so don't step out and take a deep breath in the morning.I WILL NOT GO BACK!!! They need to overhaul their staff all the way around.I have a lot of camping friends and w are a group and a community so I will inform them all. - Lucky camper

The place appears to be more like an industrial site with some kind of sludge filtering machine running, front end loaders etc. Spots are difficult to park in due to hills and sharp angles. Everything is gravel and there is nothing to do. Most of the campers are permanent and very few spots are available. Not what I would call a 'family campground'. The employees are helpful and friendly. I think it's intended more for gold hunters than it is for camping. There are other things to do in the area so I'm told. - amwhatam

We were here to do genealogy stuff in Albemarle. It is very convenient to there. The campground owners/staff were very friendly and helpful. The sites are fairly level with only 2 sites for larger coaches. Several long term people here and all were friendly. All roads and sites are gravel. We took the time to do some panning for gold and found some flakes. We did not use the shower or restrooms. The laundry was out of order while we were there. We stayed 6 nights and will definitely be back. - buddyw

This is a working gold mine that has a small campground on the property. We didn't take advantage of any of the gold mining activities, but it looked like fun. We needed a place to stay that was convenient to Albemarle and Concord, and we didn't want to stay at the parking-lot-they-call-campground at the speedway. The campsites are all shaded and relatively level with new gravel. The power, water, sewer, and Wi-Fi all worked and the staff was friendly. There is no cable TV (or even a broadcast TV signal), but our cell phone service worked, which was a nice surprise. The bathrooms and showers can only accommodate one person at a time, and they charge $2 for use of the shower. There is one washer and dryer which is also pay-type. At $25, this campground is a good value, if you have a reason to be this far off the beaten path. - Doraville

We arrived at Tanglewood Park on a Sunday afternoon. We were highly impressed with the welcome we received at both the Welcome Center and again by the host when we entered the RV area. He had us follow him to the site in a golf cart. We had a wonderful site that was great for families. It was close to the restrooms, a covered pavilion, volleyball net, horseshoes, multi-use trails and more. We enjoyed walking our dog around the RV park and on the trails. Very dog friendly. There are several doggy bag/trash areas and lots of dogs in the RV park and on the trails. The park itself was very quiet except for the squirrels dropping nuts on top of our RV through the day. Make sure to have a broom to brush them off your slides and top of RV. The trails were right off the RV park and gorgeous with wild life- deer roaming, squirrels scampering and there is also a horse barn area where we saw the horses on our bike ride. You can stay on the multi-use trails or there are some mountain bike trails through the woods. - Kevin Cale- RVOILUTION
