We stayed in Cabin #11 at Camp Wilderness. The cabin was basic, but extremely clean and the a/c worked great! Two very important things to me. We were a family of 6 - two grandparents and four grand kids. Plenty of room for everyone. Loved the porch swing out front too. Free shuttle from the campgrounds to Carowinds. Would definitely...

This is an affordable, family-friendly campground. It was a last-minute decision to go for the weekend. The staff was friendly and helpful. The park was awesome. I grew up in Atlanta going to Six Flags and Stone Mountain Park and the park reminds me of Six Flags 30 years ago in a very good way. The roller coasters are spectacular... More

Two day ticket price, early entry, and free shuttle were great Cabins were clean and very nice, but pillows were not comfy, bring your own Pool and other games were clean and free. Overall a great place to stay.

Decided last minute to go to Carowinds park since we have platinum passes and had never been there. We reserved a campsite since it was adjacent to the park and had a pass rate. We have never been to that area so it was easier for us to do this. We were only there a couple of nights but will... More

Unfortunately some of the facilities were under renovation. So we had no clothes washing facilities and the closest toilet and bathroom facilities were also under renovation. The shop was also pretty basic, but staff were nice and polite

Got there and checked in, no problem. Site was at the bottom of the hill. Since there was a lot of rain, it can get pretty wet. Sites are an average size. Upper area seemed a little nicer and was newly paved. Used the pool, which was very nice. Loved that there were life guards. Wish it was open later... More

Well kept campground, both sites and public areas. Right next door to Carowinds Amusement Park. No need to get the kids up super early. Has a shuttle to park if needed. Friendly people, both at check-in and at the camp store.

We thought the campsites for tent camping were lovely. It is well lit, so be careful where you put your tent, as you may find certain spots quite bright. There are two bathroom/shower buildings in this area. I would recommend using the family restrooms, as they are much cleaner and newer. The regular bathrooms showers were not clean or well... More

Camp Wilderness is a very nice and quiet camping experience that offers many amenities for a great price. All RV sites are full hook-ups and the restrooms and bath houses have been recently upgraded. This campground offers a laundry facility, a centralized gaming room to play billiards and other games, a life-guard maintained pool, and a small convenience store. The... More

We stayed in the largest cabin at camp wilderness. I believe it is referred to as "the lodge." I loved the living area. It has very high ceilings and lots of windows. It has nice wood floors. It also has a large wrap around porch that is beautiful. The reason I gave it three stars is because it was not... More
