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

Our family stayed in this campground for 3 nights and enjoyed our stay. Very nice site and the staff was great. The only complaint is the bathhouses. They need to be updated and cleaner. As a family we camp about 4 times a year and found the bathhouse to be one of the worst we have seen.

I spent two nights here in a motorhome. Pool was very nice. Shuttle service to the park was convenient. I was in the older part of the campground near the office and the 30 AMP service kept throwing the breaker. Had to plug into 50 AMP and adapt to 30 to get enough power. The park itself is pretty with... More

We bought a new to us motor home and decided to stay close to home for our first camping trip. So we headed to Carowinds Camp Wilderness. I read some reviews on trip advisor some good and some not good. One said the planes fly over head because it is on the flight path to Charlotte Douglas Airport. This is... More

The cabins are small but nice. Love the front porch swing. The beds are foam and not soft but comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Our tram driver took us to the park and picked us up when we were ready. The only downfall was that the pool closed extremely early. 6:00 on the Thursday and 8:00... More
