Apr 2011 - $20.00
This park was close to home for us in case things just sucked. They didn't. Really liked the park, and would stay again. You can hike trails, bike ride, and swim in the lake. The bathhouse was your average state park type bath house. Clean for the most part, but not 5 star or anything. Each site has picnic table, grill, and lantern pole. Down side is that it has no electricity, so we couldn't run a/c. On a really hot day this probably would suck. However when we stayed here the weather was very comfortable. The sites are very well shaded, so this helped keep things cooler. We were somewhat limited by not having electricity, but as dry camping goes this wasn't a terrible experience. They do allow generators but noise restrictions require they be turned off after 10pm. We camped next door to the camp host and they were very friendly and helpful. - Soph

Camped here with a large group of geocachers, some that stayed in the family area and others that stayed in the Group tent camping area. The family camping area has 33 sites, some with a view of the lake. Each site in this area has a paved parking area and large tent pad. My pop up fit well on the paved driveway but it was somewhat unlevel. Travel trailers larger than about 24 feet may be challenged for room. The one bath house in this area was clean and the hot water was adequate. The park was quite attractive and large. I would have given a slightly higher rating but was somewhat aggravated that the family camping area and group camping areas are separated by gates and they lock these at 6 PM. We had friends in the group site but could not visit with them after 6 pm. - jrackley

Stayed here on way south. Not a KOA member so price was VERY high, even though listed as KOA Journey. Campground easy on-off to I-77, small but very nice. Would be nice place to visit again but would not, due to high cost, esp. since we had no water due to temperatures. - Mainiac
Nov 2018 - $35.00
We've stayed here 3 or 4 times over the last few years. It is very convenient to I-77. The staff was friendly and efficient. I used some KOA points to get the price down. I've never been on a level site here. There appears to be some but I'm always given one requiring me to do some leveling. We never have been bothered by road noise even though the Interstate is close. This park is not a destination but it is convenient for us to visit relatives living on Lake Norman. - Shady Spring

The staff are very nice and friendly and helpful. The park itself has a number of full timers. The roads are asphalt and the sites are gravel and grass. There are few full hook ups. I checked the bathrooms and showers and they were very clean. The laundry was clean. When driving in I saw the pool looked dirty. The pull through site we were escorted to was level, but water and electric only. We were then shown two back in sites that had cable, but again no sewer and the sites were very unlevel. We chose to leave and the management gave us a full refund and were very nice about it. It seems KOA has just not put the resources into the park that the staff need to manage it well. - Alabama Jim

This is our 4th stay at Lake Norman Motorcoach Resort. We like it because it is clean, well-maintained and staff is friendly. We know we can expect level, concrete pads (which, this time, were even more important, as it rained a lot!). Hookups are convenient. Most sites are tiered on a hillside, and somewhat close together. (You will need to disconnect if towing) We stay here when visiting family who live in the area. We were surprised, this trip, at the number of loud pickup trucks entering and exiting at all hours, sometimes at a faster rate of speed than is safe. The entry gate (has a pass code) was left open during the day, which may encourage faster travel, but it is good there don't seem to be small children staying here. New managers this time - seem very nice. - StateofMaineStateofMind

We have stayed at hundreds of RV parks. Lake Norman Motorcoach Resort is amongst the best we have ever used. In a beautiful location. Very well maintained. The sites are level concrete pads and well maintained lawns. The hookups are all just about perfect. It is a little tight getting to your site, but a resort employee will be there to help you maneuver and get your RV located. Every employee and the owner seemed anxious to do whatever is needed to make your stay enjoyable. - Tina and Pete Collins

A resort campground geared to Adults. Tiki Bar on site. Free use of paddle boards and kayaks. Paved roads so little dust. Good cable. WiFi not as good as I thought it might be. - AvalonDF41
Jul 2018 - $41.00
We were looking for a convenient over night stop to see friends in the area. Site #R34 worked out great. Level asphalt, pull-through site with open access for DirecTV. 50 amp service. The band/DJ? was setting up when we returned after dinner but we were parked behind the game room area and didn't hear them which worked out well. We'd stay here again in our 40' motor home. - rwarner22

We come here for short-term stays when in the area to visit family. They recently raised their rates. They have a 14-day limit for short-term stays, then you have to leave for a few days before returning for another 14 days. Holidays esp Halloween are always packed. We stay in a FHU 50 amp pull-thru on the lot near the pool which is adjacent to the highway. The office staff are helpful and accommodating once they get to know you better. It's an older park, they keep the sites minimally maintained, wifi is free but weak in spots, water pressure is great. Dog breed restrictions apply - no chows, pits, Dobermans, Rottweilers or mixed breeds with any of those in them. There are A LOT of permanent and seasonal residents here. A large part of the park is a trailer park with a small section for travelers. Great for overnight or short stays. - Flippitti

Most of the park (at least 90%) is extended stay or permanent residents. The weekend or short-term visitors are literally put in a parking lot right next to the main, busy road. The putt-putt and game room were closed. The only view we had was of two billboards and a very busy street. Very disappointed. - Amy N

We are in a 40' motorhome towing a vehicle. We stayed here for a few nights. The campground is 99% permanent residents (aka trailer park) with less than a dozen sites reserved for transients, off the main road in the middle of the campground. They're all back-ins, most are under trees. We had an FHU site near the lake. Some of the sites are terraced because everything slopes down to the boat ramp at the lake. But despite being terraced, our site wasn't level. Sites are gravel, roads are mostly paved. The hookups are way in the back but the sites are also long and wide so you have the room to maneuver your rig to reach the pedestal. Sites have a fire ring and a picnic table.
Wifi was nonexistent so we used our own. When you check in, you're charged $10 for an electronic key card to enter the park. You get it back in cash when you return the card at check out. That means that any guests who want to visit will have to go to the office and pay a fee just to see you. There's no off leash dog park, restrooms smelled moldy (I could smell it from the outside) and there wasn't a flat surface in the park.
The main reason we likely won't come back is because of the buzzing power lines that run right over the middle of the park. They're loud enough to be disturbing, and sound as if you have live electricity crackling above you all the time. Well you do but I don't want to constantly hear it. I don't understand how anyone can live under that. - Flippitti

This is a clean well maintained campground with a pool, mintature golf, and a store. Nice size lots with some lots have a great view of the lake. Would recommend this campground to other campers. Very friendly staff and campers. - Jaretaz

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

Nice quiet campground. Owners are very nice, and they make sure you enjoy your stay. Not a lot to do in this area though. We stayed here because we have friends who live in Taylorsville, and the rates are cheap. They have a fun Haunted Trail the month of October and campers get half off admission. First night we camped there we had a loud group of tent campers beside us but the owners came out and told them they had to be quiet or he would have law enforcement sent to the campground. They remained quieter through out the night but were asked to leave the following morning. If the campground bathhouses were updated it would definitely make for a great campground. - fmbarnes

We gave this campground a 2, but only because of the very pretty surroundings. The facilities themselves rated a 1. We paid $33.00 for a water/electric site. We expected better, however, this campground apparently hasn't seen preventive maintenance in years. Filthy bathrooms. Laundry area and laundry machines were so filthy that we opted to do laundry at our next stop. Deep cleaning of the bathhouse and laundry room, and a fresh coat of paint throughout would do wonders. Deep in a valley, do not expect your cell phones to work. We would not return to this campground. - tomnorman457

We had a great time at this campground until the weekend/holiday crowd arrived. They also contracted the pool out to a group that trashed the restrooms. Owner proceeded to work with motorized equipment to clean the restrooms at 10:30 pm (Very loud). Great petting zoo but look out for the bee's. Otherwise the owners were very friendly, and made frequent rounds. Sites are level but obviously have some drainage issues when it rains. We would return on an off season weekday having made sure rain was not in the forecast. - jkintner

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

Reserved a site for a 5th wheel. Site barely big enough for a pop-up. Mostly permanent sites. Roads are terrible. Unbelievable amount of golf carts driven by kids that will run you over if you get in their way. Circuit breaker kept tripping. Needs major upkeep. Pools were ok and fishing was good. - Ozzy Osman

This is more of a park for long term campers. Only 10 back in sites for people traveling. Super low water pressure. The first night we stayed, music was blasting till way past midnight. No security to stop it but it was a DJ. Very hard to make turn in this park and back into the site. It does sit on a beautiful lake. We would never go back to this park again. We were to stay 3 days but left out after 2 days. - Steve Solomon

Didn't use the restrooms. They looked tired but clean. That is why I only gave 4 stars. Close to the freeway, but didn't hear it. It was easy off and on to find Van Hoy. Had a pull through site. Site was little sized gravel and level. Stayed 2 days and satellite (Directv) worked well. Owner very helpful and nice. Restaurant nearby was very good and cheap. We will stop again when traveling by. - consmith

I have to agree with other reviews. The prices are a bit high for what you get. We were in the over flow grass lot and only had 30 amps and water. No extras. However, even with all the rain the area had gotten, our site was level and mud free. - Let'sGo!
