Had reserved a campsite last fall for Christmas week. Very old and tired campground. Not well-maintained but the staff and other campers I met were nice. It could be so much better with a little TLC! Actually I was blown away by the auto seat in the ladies room!

First, the good news: power, water and sewer connections were good. The folks in the front office were very nice and helpful with getting around the area. Location was fair for getting to Carolina Beach and Wilmington. Now the bad news: this place was full of old, run down campers where people were mostly living. I think we were the...

Said we had full hookup but we did not. Brought us buckets to catch water. Pool water was black, Water hookup smelled like rotten eggs, bathrooms were horrible, cats running loose and one jumped on top of our camper at 5:00 am. Car alarms going off and mopeds driving thru in the middle of the night. Power hook up was...

Family and I stayed in the Carolina Beach Family campground May 5th through the 8th. I had seen some previous reviews of the campground that didn't sound so good, but I like to form my own opinion so we went to check it out and glad we did!. Great campground, friendly and very helpful staff! We had a great spot...

What a dump... Read the other reviews, they're all true. Stray cats, overflowing dumpsters, disgusting bath houses, disgusting office, odor throughout the entire campground. The office and the bathhouses doors have nearby giant buckets overfull of cigarette butts. The pool was gross. Most of the "sites" were occupied by rotting RV trailers with junk in their yards. Weeds are overgrown...

The only reason we ended up staying here after reading the massive amount of horrible reviews, was the owners saying that they have been remodeling.. Biggest shame ever!! Have to agree with the people who did not enjoy their stay. Bathrooms are absolutely disgusting.. Shower floors are literally brown from how dirty they are, the shower curtain is hanging by...

Absolutely don't stay here....the place looks more like a junk yard for aged RV's more than anything else. The locals have trash strung out all over the place, from broken recliners to broken toilets. Bathrooms and campsites haven't seen a maintenance man in years! The smell of cat urine is over-whelming in some areas and we even watched one of...

This campground is nothing like the pictures that are shown on their website. My friends and I were astonished with the state of the place. We felt like we had been completely tricked into making a reservation. We only stayed because it was the 4th of July, and everything else was booked up and we had nowhere else to go....

I tent camped for a couple nights, and had a great time. Location is great, the people who run it were awesome and stayed late for me because they knew I'd be getting in late the first night. I'm in the Forest Service, and used to "real" camping out in the wilderness, so maybe I'm a little skewed, but I...
