“convenient and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2014

Great place for families to stay at Carowinds. Staff is very helpful and assisted us in reserving a cabana at the water park. Shuttle is convenient. Beds are small and not very comfortable. Kitchen is sparse - would advise grilling out if you don't go out for meals. Nice campground - shady with mature trees.

Nice campground, easy pull-through sites, very convenient to park and interstate. Will definitely stay again! Staff were very friendly and helpful even running the shuttle extra trips when needed. Pool area was nice.

This was our first time camping here, but won't be our last. We have a travel trailer and loved the site we were on. Nice level, paved sites with shade. I wish they provided fire rings, instead of charging an absurd rate of $15 per night. What is camping without a camp fire? But overall, good experience.

This campground is very nice and clean. The availability of the free shuttle service to the gate was very convenient. The staff is very courteous and helpful. Camp Wilderness was secluded. We could hardly tell that we were near a large city

Room Tip: There is no fill station for propane, so be sure your tanks are topped off --however, that did not h...

The majority of camper sites are flat. It seems the place is generally pretty quiet. We had a few rowdy people, but that doesn't appear to be the the norm. Everything worked great and it's right next to Carowinds. The staff were friendly and helpful. We'll definitely stay there again.

The staff was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We loved getting the two day tickets for just 52.99. The tram to Carowinds was added bonus. Our only wish was that the pool would be open until at least 9pm.

The trip from Mebane, NC was very pleasant. The exit from 77 to Carowinds was clearly marked, but the reservation info provided by the camp led us to the park main gate.

After calling the camp, we were able to make our way to the campsite & were allowed enrty to our cabin even though check~in time was still an hour away.

The cabin was very clean, and the kids loved the front porch swing.

We didn't have time to take advantage of the pool or the grill outside our cabin.
The shower had plenty of hot water for the 6 of us to bathe & not feel rushed.

Our cabin was missing the coffee maker, so we were quite delayed our 2nd day while waiting for one to be delivered. But that was the only thing that could be called an issue.

**The mattresses are basic camp gear. If you have back problems or need a fuller sleep surface, pack an eggcrate or mattress topper.

***Linens are NOT provided for the fouton, so bring an extra blanket & pillow.
