The RV campsites are well/kept. Very quite. Lots of paces to walk your pet. Bath house was clean and had a washer and dryer. Level campsites, many are pull-through. Pump out station conveniently located.

I don't know for sure, but I would assume they WILL NOT have kitchen utensils supplied in the cabins. If I were you, I would purchase disposable cutlery, plates, etc. when you stop in Athens.
