On our way to GA and stopped over to take an overnight break. Office staff was delightful. Our sight was not level. But then most were not. Bathhouse was clean, well stocked, plenty of hot water, good water pressure, aesthetically needs updating. Grounds are well kept.

Will never recommend this place or go there again. Unfriendly, dirty, no Wi-Fi charged too much. All amenities were either not available or broken. Left after one day. There was no one working except for two in the office who were not friendly.

The new area G was fantastic. Gravel sites, and long enough for my 44' big rig. Was able to back in and had enough room for my truck and 2 motorcycles. The sand on the sides are squishy but nothing to worry about. Staff is super friendly. Can't say anything on amenities as we didn't use them. General store is lacking on items and no logo merch. The grill was good, had breakfast one day. The lodge needs some updating but overall it served it's purpose. I would come back again and look forward to it. Great local shopping and strolling area in Mocksville. We camped at Forest Lake RV Park & Camping Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall, very good. My site was fine, and the staff was friendly. I did not use the common areas, but as with most parks there is room for improvement and updating. I will stay again when I am in the area.

This is one of the best Thousand Trails preserves I’ve ever stayed at. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The roads in and around the camping areas were very dusty but they were in good shape. The camping areas were spacious and well cared for. I would recommend this preserve to anyone.

We are Full Time RVers with a thousand trails membership. We’ve stayed at this park 3 weeks and we have to say we love it and it’s one of the best TT’s Parks we are visited on the east coast. First, I would like to mention the activities in the park and the activities team! They put a lot of hard work into a haunted trail, a escape room, trunk or treat, trick-or-treating at RV sites, and much more! All for free! And for fun! You can tell they really care and wanted the kids (and adults) to have a good time! This park includes annual campers, full timers, seasonal, and people just passing through (like us) but every one is super friendly and we’ve made a lot of friends here. They’ve added new sites that look level and fit bigger rigs with full hook ups. We work full time and have been able to work off of T-Mobile and ATT! Video calls, emails, steaming, etc. James Junction is open 5 days a week and food is decent! They also have ice cream! No hot tub but pools look nice and the Rec room has pool, ping pong, air hockey, and arcade games! We will be back!
