They let people in that are rude and crude. They don't seem to police the actions of the transient residents. These people have parties with several dozen people and are loud. Due to these people my wife didn't feel safe at night. We cut our stay there short and moved on. When these people move on the place seems like... More

Working in area for a few months. No break in daily rate for monthly stay. None at all. $875/mo. Are you kidding? Ongoing construction. When asked when it will be finished. The answer is always 2 weeks. The campground has rules that are ignored. Feels like camping in a parking lot with all the extra vehicles everywhere. Leave your unit... More

We have stayed at Camp Wilderness 4-5 times over the past 10 years, the last time prior to this being 2011. Almost everything we remembered and enjoyed most about it is now gone,and what was a really nice, far above average campground is now just (barely) average. Probably explains the extremely low occupancy rate on the tent and popup sites... More

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
