I read some bad reviews and so was reluctant to book this campground, but it is in the perfect place for our trip. The check in was easy, and I don't see any of the problems I read about. We have a nice level concrete site, and overall it is very clean. the one bath room I saw is beautiful...haven't... More

We have just attended our travel club's Nov rally which was held at this campground. When we looked at past reviews we were actually scared to attend, because they were so bad. We experienced none of the issues that were complained about in previous reviews, the owners have obviously worked really hard to address them. The campground is very well... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are the closest KOA campground to downtown Charlotte which is reflected in our name. As with most campgrounds, we are located slightly outside the city which is what many of our guests desire versus a busy metropolitan area. We will do our best to reflect this better though,...

Nothing amazing about this KOA, but it's reasonably priced (compared to the nearby competition), has decent Wi-Fi, cable tv and a really nice bath house. The cement sites are level and the cabins appear to be the standard KOA cabins. The office has been incorporated into the Valero gas station next door, which is unusual, but has its advantages --...

I just recently spent 3 nights at this KOA with my 4 grandchildren ages 3,4,8 and 9. I wish I had done a little more research prior to going here. This is the first and probably the last KOA I'll ever stay at with children. Upon pulling in, you ck in at the gas station/ tavern. Which is located right... More

After reading other reviews, I agree with most about the negative side of checking in at a gas station. Never, in all my travels did I pull up to a KOA office, only to be directed across the parking lot to check in. My husband had back surgery Dec of this year, 2015, and we were pulling a 24 'travel...

We arranged for a gathering of our congregation to camp out together. They didn't honor the arrangements or price promised. When I disputed it, we were given an hour to leave. This was at night in a rain storm. The owner cursed us out in front of 10 children. Said we needed to leave and make room for the paying... More

The bath house was very clean. The service was friendly. Newly refurbished pool. The playground and mini golf were both closed. This place was okay, but the rate was more than double what you'd pay at a state park, and every SC state park I've been to was nicer than this. I won't stay here again for that price. There...

I'm not sure why there are so many negative comments about this KOA. We stayed twice on our last trip (both going and coming) as it was almost halfway on our drive and extremely convenient to the interstate.
