Some in my group of regular campers have been going to this campground for 15+ years. Now, we cannot recommend anyone to camp there anymore. Still a great campground particularly for families with young kids. The problem comes in the management and new fees they do not tell you about until you arrive. I went up two weeks early to reserve a particular cabin next to sites others in my party had reserved. No one told us about an additional $10 charge to hold these particular sites. Therefore, we had 30+ people on different sites than we usually had in prior years. No one told us there would be an additional $5/head/site/night. Trash was overflowing in the two dumpers. We were told the waterslide was broken on one half but it started working fine when the line got too long on the working side. The grass had not been mowed in awhile. But mostly, the management and staff were rude and seemly making up rules/procedures as they went along. For example, I wanted to put a tent on my site for the boys to sleep in. I was informed that was not permitted. So I told the lady she needed to walk her campground because at least 15 sites had one or more tents setup on them along with the TT. Then, it was an additional $10/night. So, do yourself a favor. Spend your money else where.

I LOVE this place! The staff makes me and my family feel at home here. We stayed every month up until October. Trail of Terror is fantastic. I have three small children and there is a ton of stuff for them to do. I must admit I love the waterslides. I plan on frequenting this campground many times in 2009. You can rent golf carts and my boys like to just cruise around the campground. Even if Lakeridge did not have all the ammenities it does I would still go there because of the staff. This is a terrific place any family would love.

We stayed here during the week with a rate of Mon. thru Thurs. for 100.00. I thought it was a great family campground. The kids enjoyed the water slide and pool and it wasn't very crowded. We had a bit of a hill to go over to get to our site but we had no problems backing in. It was in the wooded area with plenty of room. The bath house in our area looked brand new and was super nice.

Yes this was once a good place to go. The Millers who once owed the park sold out to Lakeridge Resorts which is big corporation. The advertise bath house in new area with 50 amp service. No bath house and no signs ever attempted or started to build one yet. Staff was rude once we arrived because we were there before 2PM check in even though we called night before to see if we could get in early, was told yes your site is open. Was told had to stay through Tuesday to see fireworks (which were nice fireworks, best for any campground I have seen)but they did them Sat. night instead which I had already taken Wednesday off to travel due to this. Only 1 bath house in middle of park but no parking area at it. the one bath house is long ways from pull thru area, I mean long ways. July 4th weekend camp store closes at 7PM every night, have to drive into town if you need bag of ice or something else. no real user friendly anymore. We left on the 4th and traveled back home. But you make you judgment these arjust my opinions.

Lakeridge RV Resort and Campground is formerly RJ Ranch RV Resort. RJ Ranch RV Resort is a great place to go. There are several seasonals, but there is a separate part of the cg where you really feel like you are camping. You are surrounded by trees/woods, near a lake. Each site was fairly spacious, and fairly level. You might have to do a little leveling, but only a couple of sites we saw were off kilter too much. W/E at most sites. My only complaint is that the hookups were sometimes in weird places. Maybe take plenty of hose and an extra extension cord. However, Bob, one of the co-owners, is nice enough to lend you a cord or hose if he has one. I think we saw him doing just that. Anyway, the sites are graveled, with not a lot of mud. There are brand new bath/shower houses, with individual shower units. Don't forget to lock the door like I did, as your door opens to the outside! The lake is a pretty place to paddle boat, kayak, or just fish. The lake is stocked with rainbow trout and bream. Had lots of fun fishing that week, as did Holly. There is a playground for the kids, and what looks to be a shuffleboard area. I think horseshoes are also available. The waterslides are fun, but somehow built for smaller folks. Myself and a few others sorta got beat up going down them. As a matter of fact, I still have scars on my feet, as the slides are concrete. Don't worry about the little ones getting hurt. I think the bigger you are, the higher you go on the sidewalls around the curves, and that was causing our injuries. Limping and battle-scarred, I still rode the water slides 30 or more times. The pool at the activity building is pretty nice too. They even have a lifeguard on duty. A nice big gameroom too. Their snack bar (when open) has great pizza and ice cream. Laundry room available there too. Bob also offers a nightly hayride. A pavilion is available for group meetings. Mount Airy, NC is about a 30 mile drive. It is the model for Mayberry, and there is an Andy Griffith museum there that we found interesting. The Blue Ridge Parkway isn't too far, if you want to drive a few miles on it. Admittedly, there isn't a lot to do outside the cg, but Holly and I agree that this was one of the best vacations we've had, as we both enjoyed just reading and sitting at the campsite. Summary: Woodsy feeling at the sites, clean bathrooms, hard working owners. Good, no, GREAT place to camp.
