Carowinds Camp Wilderness Resort
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 7, 2014

This campsite located at Carrowinds amusement park in the Charlotte Area is well worth a trip. The people at the front desk were very cheerful, the lodge is a great gathering place with lots of games to play, and it has a gorgeous fireplace. The grounds are beautiful with lots of trees. The pool is nice and clean and the lifeguards are constantly keeping up with swimmers. The shuttle drivers to and from the park were courteous and accommodating to our schedules. It is the best location to watch the nightly fireworks from the amusement park. The only negative is the showers, which are very outdated and need some renovations and need to be cleaned more often than they were. Be sure to wear water shoes when getting showers.

Room Tip: We slept in our tent. The campsites are large enough for pop ups and a couple of vehicles.

Upon arrival on a Monday, we were greeted by the friendly staff and discovered that the campground was nearly empty and remained that way until we left on Wednesday. The facilities were clean and the camp sites were well kept. No one was enjoying the pool and we had it to ourselves. It had a life guard on duty which made it nice. The camp sites are paved and shady with beautiful trees. We took advantage of the tram service to visit the park and it arrived on time every hour to shuttle guests to and from the park. We will definitely stay there again even in the winter months when the park is closed because it was nice, quiet, and convenient to the interstate!

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

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.
