Campsite Review: Dan Nicholas Park, insider info:

All the sites in Dan Nicholas Park are pretty good. They are all in the trees with good shade. Summer temperatures are hot. In early July, we ran at least one of our air conditioners all day and well into the night.

Three of the sites do not have electricity 72-74.

Generators are not allowed even in sites without electricity.

One site is across the road from site number 39 is unnumbered and used for an admin site and if you fit in your site you may be allowed to occupy it. It has electricity and water.

The weekend in July was busy with most sites filled, but not all. During the week occupancy was about 10%.

Typical site at Dan Nicholas Park
Typical site at Dan Nicholas Park

I would avoid sites 5, 15, 46, 48, 50, 55, 57, and 61 for various reasons. Most of these have slope issues. Some of these sites would be ok in a smaller RV. I would also avoid site #31 because it has a maintenance road running through the middle of the site that you can not block with your RV or car.


This park has lots to do for families with children. It is the only place we have gone with a petting zoo and amusement area for children.

Fishing in Dan Nicholas Lake is free for campers but does require a North Carolina fishing license.
