Don't make our mistake and pull into the entrance for the amusement park...that's not what you want ;) Follow the road around as it runs alongside the park and continue until you come to the wooden coaster, the road you want is near here. We were here in the off-season for a few days and while there were other campers,... More

We had a great time. The campground hosts were so nice. Our spot was very large and level and extremely easy to get into. The shuttle back and forth to the park was awesome. Looking forward to coming again next year!

We camped for Scarowinds. There were very few camp sites occupied. The bathrooms were very clean and the front office staff very friendly. They have a wonderful lodge with TV, pool table, and video games. Corn hole was free. They also have a very big pool, but it was closed in October. The campsites were spacious and well maintained. The... More

We have a travel trailer so we stayed in the RV area for our Carowinds trip. The staff was nice. The park was nice. The bath houses were clean, just wish there was more of them closer to RV parking. They could use a update but over all a clean place! We had lots of fun!

We love the outdoors and decided to stay in a cabin following our visit to Carowinds. Mistake. The cabin (#11) was cute and the porch swing was the highlight. The inside was worn and a bit dirty. The mattresses, if you must call them that, are miserably uncomfortable. Tried to sleep on the futon and woke up with some kind... More

This was our second stay at Camp Wilderness and we enjoyed it as much as the first. The cabins are decent size with a dishwasher, stovetop, frig and even a little silverware, plates and pans. The charcoal grill is right outside the door off the porch beside the picnic table. The porch swing also gives extra setting room and a... More

Two night stay with kids. Site was a little dirty and no fire rings but we leveled ok and the charcoal grill on site was nice to have. Great proximity to Carowinds. Free shuttle that does not run by schedule although they post one so be sure to ask inside lodge. Very limited supplies in lodge. Overall good experience

Stayed during October (Scarowinds) with my wife, and two young children. We travel with a 28' travel trailer and really enjoyed our stay. PROS: Staff - The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Had problems with our water after I already set up and leveled the camper. They pooled together and was able to hook several drinking water hoses together... More

This is a great place to stay in Charlotte. If you plan on attending Carowinds, you can take the free shuttle to and from the park and get discount tickets at the park office. We like to take the RV and stay a weekend, even without a car. The campground staff was very accommodating when the kids wanted to go... More

Very clean atmosphere well organized camping in tent area was flat and spacious staff for the campground was friendly and outgoing. The showers however were not very powerful and hot water didn't last that long.
