Camped here last weekend for 3 nights, spots are very roomy. Have to say probably one of the best places we have stayed especially with so much to do. Weather was cold and rainey one day, but a warm weekend would be great with the train ride, zoo, water park, paddle boats etc. My grand kids loved the zoo and... More

We enjoyed our stay at the campground, it's a very family friendly campground! My only complaint is that we didn't know which way to drive into the park so that we would be facing the right direction to back in our RV. My husband did his first 3 point turn in an RV :) Bath houses were very clean, and... More

This is a terrific, family-friendly park and campground about one hour from Charlotte, NC. Well worth the drive, especially if you have young children, and admission is free. The park is about 8 miles from the NC Transportation Museum, which is also worth a visit. Dan Nicholas Park is large and scenic and has nice hiking trails through the woods... More

I took my Grandchildren, ages 2 and 4 here on a Sat. We had a great time. I couldn't believe this place was right in my backyard and I didn't even know it. It was a great time and where else can you take kids for a few rides for a buck a piece. They LOVED the carousel (which we... More

We went on a very slow Friday night, although we were happy to hear they were very busy during the day. We took our twins on the carousel, paddle boats, and train. Definitely do the train for a few tunnel surprises for the kidlets! Check their hours of operation by calling ahead, hours posted on their website and at the... More
