This was a wonderful state park with paved interior roads, 30 level gravel sites, strong 50-amp power, and water to all of them. Book this one early, it is very popular! Sites were spacious and widely separated from neighbors. All sites had sewer, a table, and a fire pit with firewood for sale at the ranger station at a reasonable price. The reception to our Verizon phones and MiFi unit was good. It was mostly quiet during our stay, and we enjoyed bird-watching and taking several long walks. There was a canoe rental company just down the road that offered rides from our car to the starting point, then we just paddled a few miles back to our car and took off - this activity is not to be missed! Bathrooms were clean and nice, as were the showers. Grocery stores and other businesses were quite a distance from this isolated park, so come prepared with plenty of supplies. We would have rated it higher except for a couple of items. The rangers were rarely available except in the evenings, which was inconvenient when we wanted to ask questions about hiking or other area attractions. The hiking maps that were offered were useless and trail head markers were non-existent. The other downside was the military helicopters flying over at low altitude almost constantly on several days during our week's stay, and that certainly took away from the serenity of this beautiful place. However, we would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful sites, seemingly recently upgraded. Stunning location if you like hiking. Florida Trail across road. We booked site by phone but later found it is easier to use the on-line reservation system as parks are very crowded at this time of year. We would have liked to stay longer. Immaculate level spacious sites. Need your own Internet access. Would have loved to stay here longer. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stopped off here on the way to Disney World. It is a little off the beaten path but it was a welcomed rest stop. Other than the roads being a little tricky at night and the tree that was hanging out in my parking area and made backing in tricky, everything was fine. Very small and secluded place for a good nights rest. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Really enjoyed our stay. Checked in on Wednesday afternoon and checked out on Sunday morning. Since we arrived before 4 pm we went straight to our reserved site and then went back to check in between 4 and 6 pm per instructions. Rangers and host were very friendly and helpful. Site was gravel but perfectly level. A few other sites in the campground are concrete. All utilities worked well and roads were in good condition for driving or bike riding. Restrooms were clean. It was quiet the first two nights but louder on weekend nights since the campground was almost full. Good area for biking, canoeing and hiking since it borders the state forest. The park is pet friendly, but pets are not allowed on the beaches inside the park. However, we were able to let our lab swim by driving out to the end of Boat Ramp Rd in the state forest. Milton is less than 15 miles away and is worth the drive just to get donuts and blueberry turnovers from the Milton Bakery. We hope to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Blackwater River State Park is a nice, clean, and quiet park in north Florida. The 30 spaces are arranged around two loops with a central bath house between the two loops and a campground host on each loop. The gravel lots were level and well maintained with a built in BBQ grill and a fire ring. The river is just down a very short path. While we were in the park, they were experiencing river flooding so all of the beach areas and boating access areas were underwater. We would like to come back when the river is at a more normal level. Choose this park for a nice quiet camping experience. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful State Park, rangers and camp hosts very helpful. Paved roads with level fine gravel sites. FHU's are well placed and work well. We had to maneuver a bit to back a 42' toy hauler into site #26, but it was doable. We were able to find Dish network satellites after moving our portable dish onto our roof (Superbowl weekend), but all sites have beautiful pines and are not very satellite friendly. Verizon voice service was fine, data was erratic but usable. Dog friendly with usual leash and building restrictions, excellent walking paths along river and around lakes. Restrooms were extremely clean. About 10 miles to grocery and fuel. Daily trash pickup at site. Host rakes and cleans sites after each use. Minor issue: close proximity to heliport, daytime noise can be annoying. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great State park that is far from the highway and in a very beautiful setting. Great sites with full hookups. The river beach is great and it is just a nice place for a night or for a week. We stayed in site #5 and it was a very wide concrete pad. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small Campground as far as sites go. We stayed at this park as a overnight too and from our trip to Louisiana. Sites are nicely graveled sites. Sites are gravel base, each has W/E/S, outdoor grill, firepit and picnic table. Camp check was easy and very friendly ranger. Host on the campground takes pride in the camping area. The bathrooms were spotless, host wife cleans the restrooms and never heard a complaint from anyone about it being dirty. Plenty of hot water in the showers, nice clean toilet, showers and nice shower heads. We did not explore the whole park as we were here for one night going and one night coming but would definitely keep this on our books to stay again if we travel that way. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Excellent park, quiet, well spaced sites with tree privacy. Minimal leveling on the pea gravel. Great sandy beaches on the river. Bathroom and showers were spotless. Campground host very friendly. Gate closes at 5pm. Call mid afternoon to get code if you are checking in late. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a beautiful park among pine trees, very quiet. Large sites, clean and well kept, easy biking. There is a sandy beach within walking distance by the river and you can rent canoes and kayaks nearby. Nice walking trails and pavilions that you can rent for large functions. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wonderful state park. Very private sites and extremely clean. Lots of great walking trails. New bathhouse. Cable TV would make it just about perfect. This was our second trip here and we would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very family friendly state park. Nice site, though not as shady as other state parks. The river is clean and they have an outfit out of the park where you can rent tubes, canoes, and kayaks. Lots of swimming places. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for one night with 3 small children - wish it could have been for longer! This is a beautiful park that is well maintained. The host was super friendly, even offered to help us back into the site. We stayed in site 25, perfect length (we didn't need to disconnect our 35' trailer) with lots of privacy. Playground was great for my 3 and 5 year olds. Wish we could have explored the trails and beaches, but we didn't have time. Definitely a good value - just need to make sure you reserve early for this gem of a park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice small, quiet, park. Most sites have gravel surface but a few spaces are concrete for handicap access. The park is well manicured by friendly staff. All spaces have full sewer hookups even though this is not specified on Reserveamerica.com. The staff picks up your trash every day at your camp site. Good AT&T cell service. I had difficulty getting a Direct TV shot through the trees on the south side of the Titi loop. Other sites were more open with better satellite access but offered less shade. It’s a short walk to the Blackwater River from the campground which was great for floating on tubes or just sitting in and relaxing and cooling off. We had a wonderful time and plan to visit again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a charming campground of two loops set in the forest with the Blackwater River a five minute walk away. Sites are very nice and level. There are even clotheslines at each site. Bathrooms are spotless. Sites are set in the forest and well shaded. You can walk to the river and sit on the white sand or just sit in the river and talk to those tubing or canoeing by. River is one of the purest sand bottom rivers in the world where one finds sandbars and places to stop and swim all along it. The Florida birding and canoe trail goes through here. It is beautiful. One should reserve because only half the sites were filled on this Thursday night but the campground was considered full because all the sites were reserved for the weekend. Other campers told us that weekends and all through the summer this campground is full. Outfitters will take you 11 miles upstream to canoe or tube downstream and meet you at a bridge just below the campground. Price for tubing was reasonable. You can also rent a canoe for all day or three days and canoe the whole trail through this park of 31 miles and camp on the sandbars. We were so glad that we came here even for just one night but would need two to really enjoy the tubing or canoeing on the river. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We spent a very pleasant two weeks In this very pretty and clean campground. This was our second stay here. Finding full hookups in a state park is wonderful! The hosts also provide trash pickup every morning! The only thing that would make it better would be laundry facilities. You have to contend with the military training helicopters flying over on a regular basis but you get used to them. Check before coming in the spring as they frequently burn the pine forest In the park. Due to several rains during our two weeks we didn't have to deal with the smoke but it could be a problem for some people. Plenty of hiking trails and it was a good bicycling area. We'll be back again some day! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a great site and the best State Park we have stayed at in Florida. Our site was large (concrete though some are gravel). Has full services and excellent bathrooms and showers. We would definitely stay here again. Located 12 miles form I-10 (from the east) and about 6 miles from I-10 (from the west). Great walks, canoeing , beaches and river swimming. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Blackwater River State Park continues to impress. The staff and volunteers do a great job maintaining this park making it one of the best in the state. The trail system takes you along the Blackwater River for some really nice views and picture taking opportunities. The river is very popular with kayakers and you can sit on the white sand beaches for hours watching them paddle by. A mostly quiet campground until the peace is broken by barking dogs whose inconsiderate owners fail to control. The rangers should evict campers who tie up their dogs outside then leave for day. Other than that we had a great time at Blackwater. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This is one of the nicest RV parks I have ever stayed at! Everything was beautiful and well kept. Lots of room between sites. The only thing I didn't like was the helicopters that flew over frequently but this is out of the parks control and wasn't that big of a deal. If you are looking for a place to stay this is definitely a premier RV park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is a gem. Everything about our weekend at Blackwater River S.P. was excellent. The site was spotless upon our arrival. The restrooms were the cleanest we've ever seen in a campground be it private or state. This is a small park so traffic was rare. Children ran around enjoying themselves during the day but there was absolute peace at night. We brought our kayaks, as did many other campers, and enjoyed a slow, 8 mile trip from Bryant Bridge to the north ending at Deaton Bridge in the park. The river is marked letting you know when you're entering the state park. We encountered many groups with tubes, canoes, and kayaks and everyone was friendly. The beaches along the river (including the ones associated with the park) are white sand and perfect for a day in the water. The camp host is to be commended for his work in keeping Blackwater one of the nicest state parks we've visited. Looking forward to the completion of the trail bridge so it can be reopened to the public. As I sit typing this review I'm trying to think of anything that might be considered a negative. I'm at a loss. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
My family and I have camped here several times this summer and have yet another spot reserved in September. The fees for all state parks increased from 12 to 22 dollars but we feel this campground is well worth it! They are still renovating the walk way from the campground to the river so until it's done you'd have to use the Main Trails to get here. Bike riding, hiking and walking are the main things to do at this campground besides canoeing or tubing. Both are lots of fun! The river is cool and refreshing on a hot Florida day. The campsites themselves are graveled, many equipped with clothes lines, fire pits and a grill. Some of the sites are very short so when you make your reservation be sure to look at the site length before hand. We'll definitely be camping here again! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The campground was very clean with level, gravel sites outlined with timber rails. I was impressed that the sites each had a clothes line, lit electrical box, water, and sewer. We stayed in site 10 which had plenty of room for our family of 6. The beaches in the swimming area have been covered with clean, white sand and you can see the bottom in the location our kids were swimming at. The only drawback was that the boardwalk from the campsites to the swimming area is being added / renovated so we drove around to the swimming area instead of trudging through the mud. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Beautiful, tidy campground of spacious, level, newly graveled sites amidst pine & deciduous woodlands. A few sites relatively private, with woods on all sides; some sites close together or back up to other sites, with only a wooden rail between. Bathhouse newer, reached by boardwalk; tiled, very clean. River has fishing, tubing (just outside the park) and swimming areas; nature trails available, though they were flooded when we were there. Road into the park can be flooded at times after heavy rain. Very peaceful - no road noise - but there are Navy helicopters flying over at all times of day (and sometimes after dark), due to a nearby training facility. Park charges a daily admission fee of $3 but this is included in camping fee, no extra charge to registered campers. Park is isolated, with only very small towns nearby, and there are no stores within the park. Campground host & rangers friendly & helpful. We would have loved to stay a week or more! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
As noted below Site 11 is very big. However, sites 12, 13, and 14 are very closely spaced. In fact, 12 and 13 are very close to each other and pretty short. Except for walking along the nature trail, and I guess inner tubing with the alligators, there ain't nothing' to do here! A great place to just relax and do nothing. But don't expect there to be a lot of nature to enjoy. The nature trail is pretty short, though the hike through the various pavilions over the blackish-clear waters is beautiful. The closest convenience store is several miles away. Park was very clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Sites are definitely big rig friendly. Except for three concrete ones near the bathhouse the sites are gravel. All are level. Ample space between each especially 19 – 29. Paved access roads with no overhanging limbs to dodge. There is a small playground, hiking trails and nearby canoe rentals. Lots of tall trees so there may be some lack of satellite reception depending on the site. The overflow is a looped paved road/parking area that makes for a nice place to do a boondock over night if you are self-contained. I downgraded a point for lack of a laundry, but this is one of the nicest state park campgrounds I’ve been in. It was completely full with some overflow. Best to make a reservation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped in site #11. Site was huge! This park has recently reopened after a major rehab. The showers were not available all weekend because the tile was curing so did not use them. BH was very clean. All sites have stand up grill, fire ring, and 20/30/50 amp and sewer on them. Our site we could hear a small stream behind the site, very relaxing. Playground in Magnolia loop right across from our site. Rangers put trash at the front of the sites. Swimming is available in the Blackwater River and is very cold and clean. We tried to hike the trails but there had been a recent rain and all of them had portions underwater so no full access to them. Relatively close to Pensacola(30 miles) but BWR is out in the country so bring whatever you need. There is a canoe outfitter down the road that arranges trips. We saw deer at night as well as heard other animals but did not see them. Rangers are not stationed in check in location until late afternoon. Drive in and park in your site and come back later to check in. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We camped here so we'd be close to the Blackwater River, which runs VERY close to the campground. To my knowledge, there are no sites ON the river, but they are within a five minute walk. We came for the express purpose of running a section of the river from Bryant Bridge to Deaton Bridge. We camped in a pop-up with two other couples who also had pop-ups. First, the rating of a 5 should not be misconstrued as bad. It was OK for us, but some might not like it. The camping loops are on dirt/sand roads so there is quite a bit of sand that will get tracked into your RV. Having said that, it IS Florida. The sites are large enough, but some are larger than others. This is true in most campgrounds. The bathrooms were clean and usable. One toilet did get stopped up one morning. When I came back in the afternoon, it had been unstopped and cleaned. The bathrooms are not heated though. There was a small playground for children. No pool. If you have kids, they can certainly play in the river. It's clean and shallow. As far as staying multiple days though, your kids would really need to be content with nature. There is nothing else to do. For that matter, it's the same with adults. Unless you are canoeing/kayaking the river or doing some minor hiking that's available you'll be bored. So anyway, this is a good place to stay to run the river. Just don't expect more than a place to stay. And one other caveat. We stayed here in the off season. I have been told that it is a total zoo in the summer. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Easy in and out from I-10. Well laid out and pride of ownership is evident. All pull throughs 35 ft x 100 ft and either grass or gravel. Cell, TV excellent. Nice laundry and book exchange. Would have been rated nine except there are no trees except around the perimeter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a pleasant surprise. We were making good time so decided to go further than we had planned. My wife found this park on RV Parky on the phone. Nice long gravel pad pull-thrus. There is grass at both ends of the sites but they are very solid. Park was very clean. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We pulled in here to stay one night and ended up with two nights. LONG pull-throughs for all you big rigs towing. We have an 18' trailer that we put our van on and it fit just fine. Wi-Fi was by TengoInternet...but it was the first time it worked great. The owner talked me through why it doesn't work most places and offered me to try it for free and, if I like it, would pay him the $1 a day fee. I liked it. Fast and smooth. Great owners. They have put so much into the place. It's easy access to the interstate. A little highway noise near the front of the park, but that's all. Terrific large area for the dog park. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Squeaky clean, manicured lawns, no shade (easy satellite signal!), spacious sites, reasonable rates (we booked a month). Many residents appear to be long term, but nice equipment and neat sites. Quiet rural area with distant highway and railroad sounds, occasional aircraft from bases nearby, not annoying. Easy access to Crestview and Pensacola, Navarre Beach about 45 minutes away, Blackwater River State Park 10 minutes. Facilities are modest, but very clean. Owners are nice and helpful. We plan to book another month in the Spring! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We over-nighted here and even tho it is only 1/4 mile off the I-10 freeway, we couldn't hear any road noise. The trees muffled the sound. Nice, spacious sites with gravel roads and didn't notice any dust.No concrete pads or patios, closely mown grass only with some caliche runways. Many long termers in residence and I would advise anyone to call ahead for a res. Cash or check only. We will definitely stay here again while passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Impeccably maintained park. Sites are gravel with nice mowed lawn next to the RV. Wireless is available for an extra charge ($1). No stores in immediate area. A convenience store/gas station is located about 1/2 mile away. Walmart is 10 miles east on IS 10. Despite being on a busy road it was very quiet. Office staff was very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. They wanted cash or check only no credit cards. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For the price, a very nice park. Sites are long enough to pull a 37ft 5th wheel into the site and leave the tow truck attached. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Park is far enough off I-10 to offer a quiet night's sleep. We'll stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful clean and neat park. White gravel for rig and patio with grass everywhere else. Very friendly staff, long and wide pull throughs, easy on and off I-10, no road noise, good power. Very convenient for overnighting. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is for 30 amp full hookup. Nice grass sites that are angled and level. Cable is not available, but skies are clear for satellite. Wifi was available, but we used our own access. Nice management and very friendly seasonal (snowbirds) residents at park. Great stop-over, 1/2 mile north of I-10. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Perfect place for a stopover on the way to Florida. Also popular for long term campers. Very reasonable price, easy on & off I-10. Large gravel pull through sites and very friendly owner. This is our 4th stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very well maintained gravel and grass park with full-hookup and pull-through sites. Friendly staff. Immaculate bathrooms and laundry room. Just 1 mile off of interstate 10 and perfect for us overnight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice place to stay. Flat pull through site, good power, water, internet. Lots of room to walk us and the dog. Park was clean easy in and out and best of all friendly hosts. United States Marine Corps Flag flying proudly with OLD GLORY. Perfect. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for one night and it was very clean, with large pull through sites and easy to get in and out. The sites were gravel and when it rained we had some drainage issues. But otherwise, we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a very clean, friendly park. It had easy access to I-10 which made it great for an overnight stop. They did not take credit cards, but will take cash and checks. My site was very level and clean. Check-in was a little slow, but very thorough. I would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an absolutely wonderful place to stop while traveling east or west on I-10 or visiting this area of the Florida panhandle. This is really an excellent "top notch" RV Park. Quiet and run by really nice and caring folks who live right there. Safe, clean, comfortable. Nice pull though sites. I stayed here again on my return trip, love this place. PERFECT and a great price! I'll be happy to return whenever I am passing through again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Excellent park, large sites with easy access. Hookups in the center of the sites made for easy use. Staff was very friendly and referred us to a couple places they go to eat. We would stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great park for overnight stay while traveling across the Florida panhandle. Easy sites to get in and close to interstate. Didn't have to unhook the car, just pulled our 40' rig right into the site and were ready to go for a quick start in the morning. Internet cost $1/day. Sites are gravel and a lot of permanent or seasonal residents, but that was not a problem. This place is convenient and has very hospitable hosts. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good overnight stop. Owners live on property. Clean and well maintained park. Had a coupon deal for $1 WiFi for one day of access. Owner recommended a near by eating establishment, Uncle Bills which turned out to be very good and also reasonable. Would use again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an EXCELLENT campground for an overnight stay. The sites are all 100' pull thrus. No need to unhook. Sites are level, graveled and not on top of each other. Staff was extremely cordial. Close enough to I-10 for quick access, but no noise. Rates are $23 for 30 amp or $25 for 50 amp. Very good value. Air antenna worked well, as did Sprint air card. What else could you ask for? We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a neat, tidy park and the owners are nice and accommodating. The sites are very spacious, some on compacted gravel, some on sandy soil. There was a picnic table at each site. The plus side is the ready access to I-10 with out noise. The showers and laundry do not match the rest of the park. There is a single restroom/shower for men and one for ladies. The men shower was unheated, small, dim, and the floor was damp linoleum. The shower had a mat in the standard size one piece shower with shower curtain. There was a chair in the dressing area. The washers were plumbed for cold water only. We paid $21/night for a 30A site with Wi-Fi after our military discount. The Wi-Fi is via Tengointernet and was great for the first day. It was slower the 2nd day and I had to call them, 20 minute call, to get connected the last day. I would stay here again for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park, huge pull-throughs and level. The site was also extra large with grass.Staff super friendly. No cable and if you wanted Wi-Fi it was a extra dollar a day. Very convenient from freeway. Would go back to stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice CG for over night. All grass level sites with gravel roads and no speed bumps. Good WiFi and very nice campers. Far enough off the highway so low noise. Plenty of long term RV's but that was not a problem. When checking in I asked about any discounts and was told only active military. I asked about prior military and was told no. The next morning the lady came to me with 2 bucks, 10%, for a prior military discount. She said she had checked on it and came through. How often does that happen? I would return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is close to I-10 but very quiet. The gravel sites appeared to have been rolled recently and were very level. The park is very clean and well maintained. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very good overnight stop. Easy access to/from I-10. Pull through sites. Gravel and grass. No cable, but decent local TV reception and easy SAT. Ten miles from Crestview where there is a Walmart and places to eat. About 40 miles from the beaches. Price is right. No credit cards, only cash or check. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very convenient to I-10 and a great stopover park. Clean. easy access in/out without unhooking. Air card and phone worked well. Can't address anything in the area as we just spent the night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is our 2nd time at this park. First time was almost a year, this time about 4 months. Would not hesitate to return. Both times was for extended stay. The staff is the best I have ever met. They will go above and beyond to help you in any way they can. They treat you like family. They great you every time with a smile and call you by name. Even the park occupants will greet you with a smile and a wave. We did not need the amenities, like swimming pool. It is very close to the interstate so easy on and off. Sites are very generous in size. They have a huge dog walk. which was a plus for us with our 2 dogs. The park and its people make you feel safe and wanted. I could go on and on and on about this park. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very pleasant campground: clean and well-maintained. It needs more bathrooms. One bathroom (commode, sink and shower) for each sex, period. A campground this size needs several more than one! Wi-Fi available but there is a fee for anything more than 10 minutes. Staff very friendly. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed there for almost a year because of spouse working in the area. The only down side of the park is no shade or pool. They have laundry/restrooms with showers/play area for children. The staff is the best I have seen in all the parks we have been to and that is quite a few since spouse travels from job to job.We will be going back there in September for another extended stay. Shopping and restaurants are in Crestview and that is about 15 min's away (all interstate). Easy off and on Interstate. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I gave this a high rating because it is easy off I-10, easy to get into, we had an easy pull through, we didn't have to maneuver around anything and check-in took all of 5 minutes. It has a nice dog walk. The camp host was very accommodating. There is minimal sand. We were looking for some place for one night that we could get into without any problems or sitting on top of our neighbor. Our satellite worked fine as did our computer broad band cards. I will definitely put this on our list for overnight stops. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large grassy sites with gravel roads. A quiet, well kept campground with friendly staff. We could call it a laid-back place. Restroom and shower but no pool, laundry or play areas. There isn't much in Holt so plan to eat, shop and get gas in Milton or Crestview. But this campground is a good place for quiet reading or an overnight stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very well maintained park with unusually large pull thru sites. There are no amenities other than a bath house but very nice staff. It's great for an overnight on I-10 and I wouldn't hesitate to stay for several days if I had someone to visit in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very clean well maintained park. Stayed here 3 nights as part of a local rally. One unit had trouble with the 50 amp socket on the pedestal, it was changed out immediately. Some of the scrubs are planted too close to the roads making turning in & out of some of the sites impossible with scraping the scrubs. Will not hesitate to come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed one night. 60 nice BIG rig pull through sites. 100 foot long and 35 foot wide. Has 40 back ins. They are shorter and smaller. Roads are gravel, sites are grass and sand. WiFi is NOT free. The campground is located 1/2 mile from I-10. Is a little bit of interstate noise. Did hear one train horn. Easy in, easy out with a HDT and 35 ft trailer. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed in this park for one month at $300 for a 30 amp site. These are very long, level grassy sites and very well maintained. Our site easily handled our truck and extra car. There is some highway noise and a railroad track is 1/2 mile away. The railroad has low volume traffic so it is OK. There are gravel roads throughout the park. There is a good open feeling in the park. The managers were friendly and accommodating. Some trailer or boat storage is available in the back of the campground We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The park is very clean and quiet. All the streets were gravel and wide making parking and turning very easy. The sites are pull throughs making unhooking not necessary. The bathrooms and laundry are kept very clean. They have a dog walk area and all the other campers were very friendly. Good restaurants and shopping are about 10 minutes to town. The beach is about 30 minutes and for the money it is worth the stay. The owners are very helpful with getting you in and giving you information. We definitely will stop here on our travels again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 8 / 10 ]
We camped here while looking for a home in the area. Stayed for a month and enjoyed it.
You can't beat the rates and the owners go out of their way to make you feel at home. The only down side and it's a fairly big one is the number of fire ant mounds. There were mounds everywhere and on most of the sites. The owner tries to keep up with them but it's hard to do. I stepped in one after the breaker blew on my electric and was stung numerous times. If you have animals you must be very alert when walking them to avoid the ants. That said, this is a great place for snowbirds and others looking for a nice, inexpensive and friendly campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We used this park as an overnight stop while traveling I-10. Park is just a short drive (approx. 1 mile) off the interstate and was very quiet. Roads are sand/gravel as well as the sites which were all level, long, full hook pull throughs. Rate is with Passport America discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
River's Edge is a quaint, rustic RV camp easily located off the interstate. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Sites were extra wide with gravel and fairly level. Washrooms, while older were very clean and well looked after. You are located not far from a military base so we did hear two jets go by in the afternoon, but night time was very quiet and peaceful. I would stop here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed at about 10 campgrounds over a two-week period from California to Florida and from Florida back to California. This was one of the worst campgrounds we stayed at. The bathrooms were disgusting. There were large bugs all over the showers and the bathroom. It was very unfriendly. It is pretty far off the I-10 and it is not even worth the $22.00 a night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wi-Fi was overpriced for such slow service. The bugs would eat you alive even with repellent. They infiltrated my RV and got in my bed where I was bitten several times in one night. I was in lot 62 not one air channel was available. They will not give you a refund if you find the park unsatisfactory or have to leave early. Sand roads so you can't ride a bike and have difficulty pulling your rig through it. Won't ever pay to stay at this place again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for a month. This is a really nice park! The sites are very large with an area for a garden or flower bed. The park has lots of woods which makes it feel more like camping. It has a nice river front to walk. We didn't fish herd because you need a licence. It's big park with lots or room to walk your dogs. This could be a 10 rated park if it only they had cable TV and WiFi that actually worked. They say they have air channels but you only get 4 channels if your lucky, and when the Air Force flys over, the TV blips. The WiFi is a joke!!! They say they offer it but when you get here you are only allowed 30 minutes every 24 hours. If you need to pay bills etc., it takes 30 minutes just to log onto the computer and then it times out. You can however pay $30.00 a month to have it everyday, but if it doesn't work then there is no sense. If this park would fix these issues then we would have stayed the whole winter here. Everyone in the park was very friendly along with the office people. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Site 65: Power on red-green line. It is too far from restrooms to use them. The same goes for the Wi-Fi (only good for 1 hour anyway). There was a big wasps nest in power box. We won't stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My stay here was an overnight en route to New Orleans; the park is an easy 2 miles off I-10. Due to my lack of attention, I didn't realize this was a Passport America park until several days later. Still, I thought $22 was reasonable for the park. The interior roads were a mixture of packed dirt & sand. The 50A full hook-up pull through site I was assigned more than adequately, very convenient to not have to unhitch the car. Maybe I'm just getting better at maneuvering, but I was able to position my coach & toad on the first try without having to go around again. Adjacent sites were spaced far enough to satisfy me. The campground was clean and casual in appearance. I liked the feel enough that I thought about spending another day there just because. The Wi-Fi worked well for me; there were enough over the air TV stations to keep me happy. I would definitely stay here again if/when I'm in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Located on the Yellow River, it’s secluded and offers the basics. It's less than two miles from the interstate. The roads and sites were packed sand. We could not get wireless. Television reception was nonexistence. The staff was friendly. We used Passport America. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Passport America rate of $14.50 for a really large pull-through corner lot with 50 amp, water, sewer and Wi-Fi. Bat-wing reception was pretty good as well. Verizon cell and broadband were a bit shaky. But the Wi-Fi was pretty good (using it now). This was a great find for us as we planned on going to Blackwater River SP, but the road going in was flooded and for the first time in over 3 years of full timing we had to unhook our toad and dolly to u-turn. The river is way up now but campsites are high and dry. We will come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Office staff were friendly. The roads and sites are sand. We could feel the RV sliding in the sand while driving, but we never got stuck. They claim to have wi-fi, but signal was too weak to connect, and that was on a site they said had good wi-fi. If you could connect, it was only valid for one hour. Our rate was with Passport America. We just stayed for an overnight, but if you didn't care about wi-fi, it looked like a nice place for a few days vacation. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Camped there because we wanted water access. Could not get a satellite signal for my dish and cell phone reception was terrible. If there is a bad storm the river floods so that means the park does also. Had to evacuate and go to another park where i stayed instead of having to evacuate again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Personally I prefer a more rustic setting and River's Edge is right on target here. Sites are large and level and sandy. "River's Edge", remember? Electric is steady, water pressure good, sewer connection clean and accessable. WIFI virtually non-existant, at least in site 53. Verizon Broad Band works, but the signal is a little weak. Management is very friendly. My only complaint is the lack of trash recepticles. It's a long hike to the dumpster. Enjoyed our brief stay. Will certainly return. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I was disappointed. The bathrooms were clean but they were dark and gloomy! The river is actually not that close to the campground. My biggest complaint was that there was sand everywhere. There is no pavement anywhere. They say they have a playground but it is more like swings in the woods. The bathrooms are also a ways away from the campers. It was ok but I don't intend to go back. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
This park was a pleasant surprise. The sites were large and there is plenty of open space. There are a large number of shaded sites. The river was beautiful and the boat ramp was in good condition. Network TV stations were available over the air. A real bargain for the $10 Passport rate for full hookups. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
