We have been staying in the new Shore Park Travel Camp for the past 3 weeks. The cabins are not yet open. Since the facilities are brand new and there haven't been a lot of visitors (8 rigs including ours in 3 weeks) the bathhouse is in excellent condition save some bad starters on the lights. The laundry only has 2 washers and 2 dryers which could prove to be inadequate going forward. Sites are all concrete including a patio area. All are back-in and the layout could mean you are backing in on your "bad/blind" side depending on where you are. Most are pretty level (nothing like Cheatham Annex!) a few may be harder for a big rig. A small number of sites will only accommodate RVs up to 30'. Roads are blacktop helping to keep things cleaner. We were not able to get a signal on our site with our tripod mounted satellite dish at all due to the tall trees on one side of the park. Another Class A next to us moved to another site when they couldn't get a signal with their roof mounted dish. A large number of trees have been planted between and behind sites which may become an issue going forward. No service problems using our Verizon Jetpack or T-Mobile phone hotspot. Sewer hookup sits about 9" off the ground. Not an issue for our Valterra Sewer Solution but traditional hoses may need support. No electric issues, water pressure isn't wonderful.They do not want ANYTHING put on the grass areas without written permission. Picnic table, fire pit at each site. You will hear the gun testing - usually in the morning. Not deafening but it will vibrate your rig if they are using something big.

We did not actually stay in the Shore Park Travel Camp. We stayed in the other campground on Aberdeen. We drove through the Shore Park Travel Camp the day it opened. It looks very nice and well laid out. IF you are concerned about satellite reception, I would recommend Shore Park over the other campground on Aberdeen which has mature shade trees at each site. We intend to try Shore Park on our next visit to see the grandkids.
