N.C. Zoo campgrounds

Does anyone have recommendations for campgrounds near the N.C. Zoo in Asheboro? Many years ago we stayed at one, and it was awful, but can't remember which one it was.

I have read about three of them on RV Park Reviews, and all get pretty low ratings. Has anyone here recently been to one they like? We are Zoo Society members, can get in the zoo for free, live 40 miles away and would like to spend more time over there.

Thanks.

Zooland is probably your best bet. Been there once, it was ok nothing special. Sites seem tight to me. We had a specific site reserved but they moved us b/c a larger RV came in. I really didnt like thst- havent been back.

Thanks. In looking at the Zooland site today, I notice that they don't mention Passport America, but nearby Deep River Campground DOES offer the discount. Maybe Zooland has changed since you were there.

I just checked and Zooland is still a PassPort America campground(link below),....we use PPA a lot and have found that some campgrounds who do honor it don't advertise it, especially on their website, they may have a sign at the office, but we stay up to date by the PPA site and always ask at the campgrounds,......maybe they would prefer you use Good Sam 10% discount instead or nothing at all and pay full price.......anyway, Zooland is still PPA, ......do understand that each campground sets their own rules of how they participate, ...how many nights it will be honored, some don't honor it during the summer months, but each one set its own rules...........

We always use zooland when going to the zoo and will be there next month. The sites are very tight for big rigs but can be done. I have a 40' fiver with 4 slides and have been able to do it but not easily. There is a pool and a jumping pillow as well as a playground for the kids. As said above it is nothing special but works well for Zoo trips. They are a coast to coast membr as well. We stay there for about $15/night on coast to coast.

You guys are correct about PA. I just missed it when I looked. Thanks for the information.

What about Holly Bluff? We stayed there ten years ago but I've never heard any big negatives recently.
