Gladys (Near Lynchburgh) *Lynchburg RV Resort * June 2015

This was our first time at a Thousand Trails campground.  We quickly learned they do things a bit differently.  When you reserve, you will have a spot but they do not assign you a spot, when you arrive, you drive around and choose your own site.  Having two vehicles make this pretty easy to scout out the best site.  There are pluses and minuses to this.  I guess it guarantees you will get the best possible site available that day, but it may be far from the best site in the park.  I guess that is better than some woman or man in the office assigning you a spot with no regard for your personal preference.  Ideally, I prefer to choose the best looking site based on the online map, and be able to change it when I arrive if I see a better one.

This campground is in need of some TLC.  Their sites are decent size with a nice amount of screening between sites, but their roads are not in good repair.  They aren’t awful, but not good either.  There is a nice lake and some walking trails and they have a nice pool with a snack bar.

One thing to mention is the Verizon signal was all but non-existent.  HORRIBLE!  Also, they had cable available for a hefty fee (sorry, can’t find my paper on it) and no channels at all on the bat-wing.  Something to keep in mind.

We stayed here mostly b/c we joined Thousand Trails, not sure we would return if we weren’t members anymore.

Can’t say this was a “Like ‘Em” but not quite a “Leave ‘Em” either.  Hopefully we will read that they made some improvements so we feel more comfortable returning, if/when we find ourselves in that area again.
