New sites available

We made this a stop on our way home from Florida. We were pleased to have been offered a pull through site upgrade for $1.32. That’s right, $1.32. Nice sites for a quick trip or a couple nights.

Very Convenient

We made this an overnight stop on our way to FL. The sites are are well set up. It was easy in easy out.

Full Hookup State Park

Sites along the Tulip Loop are full hookup with 30 & 50Amp. The sites are large and naturally isolated by a thick wall of reeds. This creates a pleasant environment where you’re not trading air with your neighbors.

This is the southern most point on Maryland’s western shore, where the Chesapeake and Potomac converge. Bring a fan and some bug spray and you’ll be just fine.

We stayed in site 73 with a 29’ travel trailer and had ample room for our truck. I suspect we had one of the larger sites available.

Lots of fun and lots of traffic

There are so many activities for kids at this campground. There are waters slides, playgrounds, fishing, water rentals, and campground sponsored fun.

What’s most noticeable are all of the golf carts. There’s a lot of area to cover, so most bring their carts or you can rent one. Open field camping mostly with full hookups.

About half of the campground are permanent sites. These are neatly organized like a neighborhood in the woods and along the water.

Plenty of Family Activities During Covid

From tubing on the James River to participating in a dance party, there is a lot going on at the Yogi. Some of the amenities are closed due to the disruption. The pool is open with reservation. That ended up being surprisingly convenient since the amount of pool goers is limited. We didn’t have any issues setting up a times.

The campground is divided with the store and most of the kids stuff of one side. The other side of the park offers additional lots and a playground.

The tubing trip ok. It’s slow, which is what tubing is all about, but it becomes comical when the waters deepen and the your progress slows dramatically. Still water run deep, right. I ended up paddling with my hands when we heard thunder. Of course that was just about the time it seemed like we weren’t moving. The tubing trip ends at the campground, which was convenient. It took about 3.5 hours. Don’t forget your water shoes.

Wooded Lots

Due to Covid and the proximity to a temporarily closed King’s Dominion this campground was very quiet. We enjoyed a larger pull through lot that faced the woods. Some of the sites look pretty tight, but that can be common with a lot of KOA’s.

Well Kept

Very clean and well kept campground. We spent our time on the Hatfield/McCoy trails which were about 20 minutes from the campground.

Right on the River

We really enjoyed this campground. Its not a huge place which adds to the allure. The campground is located on an exciting section of the Nolichucky River about 10 minutes from Erwin, TN. During our stay we enjoyed watching kayakers, rafters, and swimmers take on the river. The mountains provide a nice breeze through the grounds and the constant and reassuring sound of the rapids was enough to drone out our children’s whine. It’s a wonder place!
