We stayed in a cabin here for a one day/night trip to Carowinds back in September. The cabin was fairly priced, had nice amenities and was incredibly clean and well maintained. The kids loved the bunk beds and we loved the shuttle back and forth to the park. Best of all was the staff at Camp Wilderness, they were super... More

A recent trip to Carowinds with a church group necessitated a stay-over from the night before secondary to a long drive to get there. The group chose here purely because of location. It's located literally right on the back side of the park. You can see and hear the roller coasters from the front porch of the cabin. We stayed... More

Camp wilderness is a well equipped, clean, and affordable campground. What's even better is it's location. Being able to go to and from the camper allowed us to rest or grab a snack or even a change of clothes after a soaking water ride.

We stayed in the rv/camper of the campground. We had initially booked a pull- through RV site but decided we preferred a back in location. We called to request a particular site (58) about two months in advance of our trip and were given that site. The campground is very nice and the showerhouses/restrooms are very clean and appear to... More

9 old guys from class of 63 got together at the Lodge last week. I was concerned about the space, Air conditioning and cooking, all were great. Great space for all of us, Air works perfect, all cooking worked but not much in pots and pans or staples like salt pepper and any other so bring it in with you.... More

We made this our first stop on our way to Oregon in and RV. We stayed to 2 nights and really enjoyed it. We were able to choose our site in advance based on what we thought would be best (by the online map). We chose 69 which turned out to be a not so great site, because it poured... More

Nice, clean campground. A little noisy due to being right next to the park, but it was awesome! Staff was very friendly and helpful, facilities were clean and accessible. Good deal with the park admission included, and swimming pool access. Will definitely go back again. Free shuttle to park, and early admission available.

I would even camp here in the off season, when Carowinds isn't open! While the tram running to the park is convenient and we are season pass holders and did visit the park, this is a wonderful campground all on it's own! We have an RV, and stayed in a pull-through site. The sites are nice, the staff is wonderful,... More

We stayed 2 nights in the 2 bedroom cabin and it was perfect for what we wanted it for. A convenient place to kick back and relax while running back and forth to the park. The shuttle was the most convenient because it runs often. We had a blast at the Trading Post playing air hockey, they have a ton... More
