“Better for tents then RVs”

Reviewed May 06, 2015

Overall Rating

We stayed here to be close to the city for some work related projects and a family visit. It's really the only public park close to Charlotte, and based on some photos I saw online it looked nice. While the park itself was pretty with lots of trees and a great network of trials, the RV sites left a lot to be desired. With the exception of maybe one or two they were all terribly slanted to the point that most larger RVs would find it nearly impossible to get level. When you reserve they assign you a site, and had I known ahead of time I would have asked for a level site. I would say 2,5 and 9 are the best. The sites are also lacking in privacy, despite the number of trees. On the other hand, some of the walk-in tent sites were gorgeous and almost made me wish a I had a tent.

The facilities were adequate. Private, bathroom/shower combos that looked pretty clean. The only potential issue was that 4 of the 8 were closed for repair.

One other thing, while the campground is close to the city in distance, Charlotte has a serious traffic problem so it can easily take you an hour to drive downtown.

This past Sunday we successfully extracted ourselves from our cushy driveway parking spot. We said goodbye to long showers, the convenient washing machine, and those crazy cats. Only for a week...
