Class A only park with approximately 184 sites, 20 of which have been purchased thus far. Staff very friendly and wants your business. They told us the majority of their business is now rentals. The original goal of company was site sales. The club house is very large and well kept. It has a workout room that has every machine one could imagine. All RV Parks are expensive in season in this area but for the same price we could have stayed at a real "10" within 5 miles. Spacing between sites is OK but close for the price paid and lack a picnic table if that's important. WiFi is not robust at all particularly for a park desirous of a great reputation. We would definitely use this Park again --- if a spot is not available short term at the "10". We were only there for a couple nights and were not able to participate in any of their multiple activities. Everyone we encountered were very friendly.
WiFi only at the office here. This is an interesting busy campground that accommodates a wide range of campers from tents to Big Rig motor homes. After a free 5 minute ferry ride, you enter the park immediately upon disembarking from the ferry, (slight right turn). I believe the other ratings of this park were fairly accurate. It certainly isn’t a ten but when you look at the alternatives within 25 miles it’s OK. We stayed up on the “Hill Top” area and were here during a dry spell so the trip up the hill or anywhere around the grounds, involved a good coating of dust from the gravel roads. Site spacing is fairly generous and somewhat random rather than having all sites lined up in a row. We scheduled ourselves for a week at Harding’s but wished we had only signed up for a day or two to evaluate it, as we found the power supply to be erratic to the point of unsatisfactory for our Big Rig. Their 50 amp service at our site and neighboring sites was supplying normal voltage on one leg but low voltage on the other which my protective device found unsuitable during the warmer portion of the afternoon and high use period in the early evening. The campground staff was informed several times, however nothing changed during our weeks stay with afternoon brownouts on one leg of the 50 amp service. To put this review into perspective from a subjective basis, we are of senior citizenship age and traveling without the grandchildren. Thus we did not use the pool facility which seems very popular, or participate in the weekend evening entertainment options above the office which seem to get good attendance. We would probably opt for Harding’s Point over other parks in the area should we return. But that opinion is very subjective and may be influenced by how long we intended to stay.
This campground is operated by a very conscientious owner team and is situated in a setting that has fantastic possibilities. I fault myself, however, for not checking rating sources other than RV Parks Review prior to arrival. Saddleback is a nice little campground which has been miss-categorized by other reviewers IMHO. Or, the reviews posted here on RV Parks Review I read prior to making my reservation were not made by actual camping customers. I smell a tiny bit of self-serving when this campground is given a 10 by anyone and wonder where else they have camped as a comparison. The campground has approximately 20 sites, 11 of which were occupied by permanent residents. Of the remaining sites only one had 50 AMP service, and none have sewer service ( mobile dump service available). The pond swimming and frog catching activities for children and adults (nets are provided for catch and release), is very back to nature and a healthy change of pace if one is accustomed to a pristine swimming pool. Our view outside the front of our motor home of the pond was fantastic. However, there was a pile of gravel just outside our entry door, and the view out the driver’s side was of a season’s worth of piled up leaves. With a great deal more infrastructure work the park has great potential but perhaps would then have to increase their rates above the very reasonable price we paid. On the Saturday prior to July 4th, the owners thrilled our grandkids with a noisy, brilliant fireworks display over the pond……a nice touch! A short ride and grocery and gas were available as well as steamed-to-order fresh lobster at Wal-Mart. Within an hour, the Maine coast and all of its attractions are fun to explore.
We made our reservation for Sunrise 2 months before our arrival for a week’s stay, and were glad we did. Had we not had reservations the following week in Canada, we would have tried to stay longer. This RV park, located approximately 40 miles north of Bar Harbor suited us perfectly. The setting is absolutely gorgeous overlooking the Maine coast, and the grounds are maintained in a pristine manner with walking paths and benches to take in nature. We will definitely stay there again if proceeding up the coast of Maine but will schedule a longer stay next time. Posting a review is a very subjective task for those of us using RVParksReview so I must add that we are in a big rig, of a senior citizen age group, and traveled without the grandchildren during this stay. We were not looking for a park that had everything but were looking for an experience on the Maine Coast we would remember and our stay at Sunrise fulfilled our goal. Day trips down to Bar Harbor, (about a 90 minute drive or 40 minute boat ride), or up to the Canadian border, (near an hour’s + drive), are within reach as are boat tours and kayaking closer by. The owner has access to fresh lobster and delivered them freshly steamed to our campsite at very reasonable prices ($6/lb. for our stay). Wi-Fi was satisfactory at this park but check with the owner concerning available transmitters as there are more than just one with varying names. At our site we found “Bad Boy” to have the strongest signal, but it varies depending upon where you are. Bathrooms, showers and laundry were clean.
Sometimes it’s tempting not to give good ratings to a park just to make sure there is room the next time one wants to us it. But that would not be fair to the staff and owner here at Lakewood. We’ve ventured up to NC Asheville general area for the last several years and have stayed at the park the last three years for relatively short visits averaging a week. We’re a couple well exceeding the 55 year point and find the facilities, fairly spacious sites, and friendly fellow campers a joy to return to each year. In reviewing RV Park Review I noticed that the last entry was a couple years ago. It’s as good now as in the past. We made our reservation for two weeks this time and had to change it slightly. They were most accommodating in the minor change and not greedy when it comes to deposits. It’s a great “home base” to explore the surrounding 50 miles.
We chose this campground due to its proximity for the night, Woodall’s review, and comments from others on this site which were fairly accurate. It was only an overnight stay and thus we were only there for 12 hours. Our assigned site was satisfactory in all respects and other sites appeared the same. It certainly was not busy as this is August in the south. I suspect at least 80 percent of the other campers were somewhat permanently established for whatever reason. After hours check in was no problem. We did not have the opportunity to peek in restroom facilities so have no comment. There is a Piggly Wiggly just down the street which is convenient for restocking and the campground was quiet during the evening hours. This campground can accommodate a lot of campers and I suspect one’s appraisal might be different during a busier season. For an evenings stay it was satisfactory.
We stayed here based on comments from other reviewers. The campground is small with only 20 plus spaces but they are well laid out in a picturesque valley not far from I-40. I made a last minute reservation after failing to find a campground with availability closer to our destination, Boone, NC. I was told when making the reservation they do not take credit cards but do accept checks and that they do not provide public rest rooms or shower facilities. Booking at the last minute, the only site available was a “over-flow” site which did not have sewer or 50 amp service. This site worked great for us in that we did not need the sewer and with the temperature around 88 the 30 amps ran both air conditioners fine as long as other loads were managed. There is a moderately steep grade approaching the campground however it is not severe, just something to be aware of, and did not present any problems. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Wi-Fi was good. Nice and quiet. Nice little playground for the Grand kids. I will stay here again but am somewhat at a loss as to how to grade it. For two retired folks that like a spacious quiet environment near Hickory/I-40 it was very nice. Note, our rate was less due to no sewer connection and only 30 amp service as we were in an over-flow site.
Skidaway Island State Park is a great place to stay if you like some Georgia shade under the oaks. Site’s for motor homes appear to be all pull through and they are organized in nice manner. It might be hard to recognize how to park after dark without reviewing the way other motor homes are parked. I didn’t bother to make a reservation in August and there were plenty of spaces available. 50 amp power is available on selected sites only so if that is important study the map. Park is about 12 miles from downtown to the south east and allows you to feel you are really out close to the marshes even though there are very nice residential areas nearby. I will stay there again if visiting the Savannah area however if just passing through for the evening would probably bypass this state park for something closer to I-95. Park staff very nice and helpful.
We chose this park based primarily on reviews contained on this site. It lived up to our expectation having received numerous tens and nines from other reviewers. We did not have the grandchildren with us thus no need for pools, playgrounds or loud bands and thus found the park rather inviting. This was our fist stay however many of the other campers were returning from previous years which is always a good sign. I found the bath/shower facilities way above the norm. Personally I believe many of us tend to over compliment the campgrounds that do a very good job with the facilities they have at their disposal. But given the value and friendliness of the staff you can round my 9 plus up if desired. I will stay at Creekwood Farm again if our plans put us on that side of Asheville. There is another campground very near that also receives fairly good ratings. We did a walk though and thought for our needs and age we had chosen the right campground to stay at.
