We stayed one night while in transit through the Knoxville area. Park was clean, but unpaved. Sites are of reasonable size and accommodate larger RV's. Water, electric and sewer worked fine, as did Wi-Fi. There is a smallish pool (we did not use it). Not much else here for activities and the area is pretty rural/rustic (Waste Management facility is next door). Afternoon and night were quiet/peaceful, but early morning had a fair amount of truck traffic on the local road adjacent to the park. Very convenient to I-75 and there were several interesting places to visit in the area just north of the park (e.g. Norris Dam).
We have friends that seasonal camp at this park, so we stayed here while visiting with them. The park is heavily treed and very hilly. The sites, however, are well maintained (gravel) and fairly level. The park has many long-term/seasonal units, as well as several park models. That said, it has a very pleasant and has a quality feel to it. There is a nice pool and a rec hall, where residents/guests meet for various activities. Water, electric and Wi-Fi seemed to be good quality and reliable. Not sure if we'd stay here if not for our friends, as it may not be ideally located and is a bit more hilly than we'd prefer. That said, however, it is a lovely setting and worth a visit.
This is an excellent stopover CG while in transit in the Charleston area. It is a small, family run CG. (I understand that a couple ran it, but the husband has passed.) The Mrs. is friendly and helpful and wanted to ensure that we were set up OK and everything was working fine. Our site was shaded and paved. Most have shade but some are not paved. The park is literally across the road from Colleton State Park, which has a lovely nature trail and river area. We wanted to stay in Colleton, but they don't do 1-night reservations, so we preferred a confirmed site at Shuman's. As you can't beat the price and location, this will be flagged as a recommended stopover on our north-south travels.
We stayed at this park with friends while visiting the Charlotte NC area. It seemed to be the closest to where we were visiting and had a lower rate, with Passport America discount, than other parks in the area. Park is quite congested with sites close together and many sites with rigs that go from end-to-end. If being not very spacious was a downside, there is absolutely nothing to do at this park. They do have Wi-Fi (worked well). You can walk around the ruins of the Tammy & Jim Baker facilities that the park seems to have been part of originally. (Was Lakeside Cabins and Campground). The park is also extremely hard to find as the entrance is on roads not widely available on older GPS. Staff was friendly, but it took hours to respond to an 'out of paper' report for the men's room, so not sure if they are understaffed or have some other issues. We would not recommend this park for extended stays and there may be better options in the area for quick overnight stops while in transit.
This is a very nice and large RV park very convenient to both the I-95 and I-4 corridors near Daytona Beach. We stayed 1 night while in transit and the park was very pleasant. Excellent pools, but not much else that we saw for entertainment. We stayed on Passport America, so the park was a real bargain. Person at the desk was very helpful. Sites are generally level and most are paved. Our site did not have cable TV, but many sites have DirecTV service (not sure if at extra charge). Wi-Fi seemed to work fine for my iPhone. We'd recommend this park for overnight and for visits to the Daytona area.
We stayed in this park one night while transiting north. It was a very pleasant stopover, although not very convenient to I-95/9A corridor. Sites are very wooded and generally large/private. Our site was quite out of level and we needed to work hard to get close enough to be comfortable. This appeared to be about average for the sites we observed. The scenery and amenities in the campground area were not particularly good, but the beach (a short bike ride away), was quite lovely and made the visit very memorable. Although the campground was full on the night we stayed, it was very quiet and peaceful and the overall park (cg & beach) felt very spacious. We likely would stay again: for at least 2 nights, in order to better enjoy the beach.
We stayed 1 night while in transit. The park is Passport America (rate we paid) and, as such, is a good value and very convenient to I-75. Sites are fairly large with most having some shade trees. Although well maintained, the sites are not totally level and we had to work to get close to level. Park has very limited amenities, making it good for overnight but less interesting as a 'destination.' Good selection of local sites and restaurants are available in the area.
The setting is outstanding and the park is very peaceful. We stopped for an overnight, but will plan to go back for a longer visit. Sites are large and shady and fairly well spaced out. Some, however, are on slopes, so plan to level your unit when setting up. There is no water at the sites, so you need to having your freshwater fairly full, if you plan to use it. Good camp store with prepared food options - but with limited overall supplies. Road in is a bit of a challenge, so be careful -- that said, a short drive from I-81. We recommend this park.
Great park for an overnight or for an extended stay. Very pretty and peaceful setting and lots to do. The park has a large pool, severaral hot tubs in an enclosed building, and tubing on the river. On site entertainment, food, shop, etc., make this an ideal stopover. Seems like nearly all sites are shaded and pull-thru. We camped mid-week and it was quite peaceful - but we heard it is fairly full on most weekends. We hightly recommend this park and will plan a longer visit when our travels permit.
We did a 1 night stopover at this park on our way north. The good news is - this park is very convenient to I-95 with easy access. And, if you like it, there is a Cracker Barrel right across the street. Also, on the positive, the sites are really long and generally spacious - although not particularly private. The bad news, and there were several things, is that the pool is either out of commission or under repair - but nothing was said at check-in, so I think the former. Then, our site had very low water presure. Finally, after about an hour, our 30-amp service just shut down. Seemed to be only our site, so we moved to another site (office closed and nobody home at owner's house). Bottom line, good overnight stopover in an area with few better options. I would not look forward to being here for any extended period of time.
Stayed only 1 day, but wish we could have stayed longer. This is a great state park campground with very private wooded sites that fairly spacious. Park is very quiet and an easy bike ride (it'll feel longer if you walk) from most sites to a beautiful Atlantic Ocean beach. There is a small shop with limited supplies and a small lunch stand for the beach. Only downside - be sure to have insect repellent (like for most FL parks). We highly recommend this park.
