“We loved it, can't wait to go back!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2011

It was our first time to the campground and we were so impressed, we can't wait to return. We have never been to such a clean and well kept campground. Unfortunately, no bear sightings for us. My kids were on the lookout the whole time. We did have so e overly friendly chipmunks but that's it. Water safari was a blast, the train ride was nice and candy store on main street is a must-visit. :-)

Room Tip: We stayed in a cabin, very comfortable, and much better than a tent in the rain. My kids loved the p...

We have stayed here 4 times. The first without children and the last three with. The staff has always been helpfull and nice. When you call to reserve they will let you request a site that you want. We have camped in a different cabin everytime and loved everyone of them. We are going back next month and I am sooo excited! I know there are alot of bears but luckily I have never seen one. We always stay at least two nights.

Room Tip: Cabins by the lodge are nice but not very private

We have been going every year in August. First year in tent but switched to Cabin every year after that! Great QUIET family vacation! They patrol the roads at night to keep bears away, but I loved seeing the bears and taking photos! They run when you CLAP loudly, so they're not aggresive at all! Love the cabin (cottage once was really great, but expensive). The park is quiet at night and lots of fun in the daytime, great sandy beach, shuttle to WaterSafari is handy but an easy walk there, too. Staff is very nice and helpful if needed. Will continue to go every year! Starting to bring grandchildren now, too!

Room Tip: Cabin is muc better than tent...

We stayed for 2 nights the end of June. We had a great time overall. Rode the shuttle bus to Enchanted Forest-very nice driver! Our cabin was right across from the nature trail. We saw lots of deer. Only complaint was our visiting bear. Whoever says the bears are harmless in their reviews obviously didn't meet ours. He came by twice while we were grilling hotdogs/making popcorn. First time we had to grab our food and run inside the cabin. Second time he got right on our picnic table. That bear came right up to us while we were sitting outside. He was not afraid of us at all! My two young kids 2 & 5 were scared to death. Nobody was comfortable the rest of the trip sitting by the campfire in the dark/or taking walks down the nature trail/or walking to the bathroom alone. Kind of put a damper on the rest of the trip. Minus the bears it would have been a great camping trip.

this was my second trip to old forge and my fiance first time. we absoulty loved it. we stayd in a cabin it was verry clean showers wer clean as well. we stayd 3 nights slept ok the beds in the cabin are a little hard but its a cabin not a luxurious hotel. the area we wer in was verry quit at night the first time i went i was in my parents camper and the area of the camp site was like a 24 hour party. we saw lots of bears but it didnt bother us at all. because bears eat berrys and bugs mostley and the ocasional road kill. the thing you got to rember is the bears wer their first soo we need to respct that and keep food dirty dishes/cooking stuff taken care of and you wont have any problems. dont feed the bears that makes them rely on people for food. "A fed bear is a dead bear". enough of my bear talk. we really enjoyd our trip wer planning anouther trip their soon
