office does not open until 9 a.m. We had a tv "box" and no where to leave it - emails not returned, camp phone went unanswered. Noise from highway traffic. No one to call in case of camp emergency. Felt we were on a desert island.

I wasn't very pleased with the site, unlevel and the hookups were not conveniently located, especially for the price. Doubt we'll ever stay again. The hostess on duty was very pleasant though.

Great overall.

The folks in Newport are the perfect description of Southern Hospitality. Highly recommended for your camping enjoyment.

Reserved and got confirmation for 50-amp big rig site. Arrived to find that we were assigned to a 30-amp site. Host found a 50-amp site, but not really for big rigs. Due to layout of site my wife was not able to exit the coach the entire time we were there. Overall park is attractive but seems not well managed.

We had a late check in but everything we need was left in the night box. Everyone seemed friendly. We only stayed one night. We were in a motor home with a tow car. We ask for a pull thru and everything was fine.

Beautiful setting. Road in/out a little narrow. Cable needs to be fixed. We were unable to use as we couldn't access back of TV. Loved campfire. Friendly staff. Would stay again if in area.

It must be at the beginning of the season as tidying up the landscaping was not started. All gravel/ grass sites made it difficult for my husband with a walker. Cable means getting a receiver and instructions attaching to TV which is a little more involved . Decided against its use. Bathrooms other than at office not for use. Derelict campers and vehicles were parked in view of site. D

Made reservation for pull thru late arrival. Got there at 7pm, ticket clipped to box, site was an easy level spot, never unhooked. Great overnight stop.

Only staying for the night and arrived late, and hosts came by to offer their assistance. Thought it was a little more off road from interstate, but after winding around and driving pretty far back into the woods, it had circled back to right next to the interstate. However, it was still a nice stay, and we slept well.

There were dog dumplings on our campsite, the outdated playground was next to a trash mount. The website was very misleading (pictures). The nice features were the showers: lavatories and the fast internet.

wash rooms were nice but the rest of the grounds need upkeep

Helpful, friendly people. A bit of highway noise and a narrow entry. Close to lots of hiking & historical sites.

Cable TV was advertised on their website. There was no TV - cable or antenna- to be had at this campground. Poorly maintained sites. Not clean.

This campground needs work. Price is OK but only for a one-night stopover.

Good stopover front N.C.

We hope that the cable is different the next time. If not can we get two cable boxes, one for each TV. Cable was the only problem!

We were "late arrivals" and "early departures" on each of the two days we stayed, so really couldn't get a feel for how the campground was. There were no real problems or issues, however. Looks like it would be lovely in the summer!!!!!

The people were nice but the campground was not impressive. The fishing pond that it shows in the campground pictures is nothing like the pond they have left. Also, the campground is noisey due to the closeness of the highway.

The campground stay is great, facilities are ok, seems to be more long term residences than travelers, never once saw children playing or even in the campground. Long term residence can help by monitoring their sites

Was a nice campground and the staff was very helpful. Sites are a little tight but can be navigated. Garbage was picked up each day which is very helpful when we didn't unhook our tow vehicle.
