Nice, new camping area on a large pond. Great wooded property, very close to Raleigh, nice bath house trailers & trails, lighting, gazebos. Campsites are pretty small and some of the items I expected in my site were actually shared - like a firepit, grills & picnic table. In the 1-8 site area, there were 2 or 3 metal firepits, a few picnic tables, a few standing charcoal grills. We were able to borrow a firepit from a neighbor's site and do without the rest. The hookups to water & electricity were top-notch quality and I'd be happy to return...just know I should get/bring some extra items to be prepared in case my site doesn't have them.

Overall we were satisfied with the grounds; the drawbacks were the other campers and no set rule reminding them to be respectful of others. We rented an RV site but did not stay in it due to the closeness of the sites and wanting separation due to the current virus situation. The host let us know we could use one of the tent sites if we didn’t want to stay in the RV site. We are pack-in/pack-out campers and wanted a location away from crowds. The place we ended up in was a bit closer to others than we would have liked, but not bad. The main issue was the children across the lake being very loud and no explicit parental control. That is the main factor we would be hesitant to go back; there were no clear rules laid out that I could find that would give me justification to let them know it was against the rules. The child’s screeching and screaming went on for hours and late into the night, from not long after we set up to almost ten. Our idea of renting this alternative spot compared to a traditional campground was to avoid this type of crowd, which appears we were wrong. The next day was exactly what we expected overall, peaceful with only a slight reminder here and there that other people were there. If we could have that the whole time we would no doubt go back regularly. We plan to give this one more attempt to be fair, would love to see noise regulations posted next time, though.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would absolutely recommend. We plan to return ourselves. However, first time visitors should be aware that the grounds are MUCH smaller than the images make them appear. You can stand in one spot and easily throw a rock into every site. Some sites (4&5 I believe) are so small there’s no way you could open your awning and set up a table under them. The upkeep left a little to be desired. We were there Memorial Day weekend and almost every site was taken, yet the grass had not been mowed nor weedeated. There are lots of holes that should probably be filled in. In fact, they caused us a trip to the ER for X-rays and crutches. But, the pond is great! Kids loved jumping off the dock and kayaking. All the neighbors were great. Very animal friendly too. Excellent bathrooms. Great WiFi. Kind and helpful host. We look forward to returning.

Nice camping area with 7 acre lake with good fishing. Hosts were very accommodating. Wifi was the best I've ever experienced at a campground. :) Lots of potential for hiking with TLC next door.

Really enjoyed our stay over this past weekend, the hosts came around once a day to make sure everything was going ok and went out if their way for me and nearby guests. They even helped me figure out my trailer hitch and lent our neighbors an extension cord!

A wonderful low key camping experience. While some sites seemed close together the view of the liake made the site we were on. Setting up camp was easy but some sites you'll need extension cords or longer water hoses as the connection is shared by multiple sites. There is no sewer hookups. We enjoyed walking the paths around the pond and floating on tubes. The AC and heated bathrooms was a plus and right down the path. All around nice place for a relaxing weekend. A nice touch was the gazebos near the lake, lighted paths, fire pits, a small dock with a paddle boat and kayak to use.
