This campground is quiet and might have been a nice place at one time. It used to have cable TV, but apparently it was lost when a rig was pulling out and caught on an overhanging branch which in turn caught on the cable wire and tore it down and damaged the cable system. It was supposed to be fixed in February but it never came about. Comcast did however show up in March for two days at which time they only spent 30 minutes each day, and have not been seen again since. We checked in here for about a week but may end up staying longer. Here are the drawbacks for this campground. There are some really bad riffraff living in old beat up RVs out in the very back of the campground. They are rowdy at times and police are often called in to settle the many disputes that go on here. They give the place a bad reputation, but the owner seems oblivious to it, all she cares about is getting the money. She relies on the guy who owns the store to tend to 'her' campground, she seldom even shows up to check on things. She makes quite a chunk from the campground, but she is putting none of that money back into the campground. Another bad thing is that the campground advertises that they have 28 sites, not so. It only has about 10 working sites. Most all the remaining site are dead sites, nothing works. The trouble with the sites is that for the bigger rigs it is difficult to maneuver into them and getting out is no better or easier. As for the noise factor, besides the riffraff there is also roosters somewhere nearby and they crow from early morning till late night and can be quite nerve wracking after a bit. There are almost no roads to speak of in the park, they are all dirt and pretty much overgrown with grass and fallen leaves. One other bad thing, at times the air sinks because of a factory in the area. Breathing the air is sickening both here and in Perry. As for the bathrooms, from the looks of the building they are pretty dilapidated and I wouldn't venture inside for fear they may collapse. The laundry room? No washers or dryers to speak of, they've all been ripped out of the wall. So, would I recommend this campground? Absolutely not. But if one is desperate and has no choice, then its a good stop only to sleep, if you can with the highway right here next to the rig. I will not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Site numbers are confusing, not quite sure what site we ended up in, but it was level and utilities worked fine. Very good overnight as long as pulp plant is in the other wind direction. Back in sites are more likely to have shade at time of the day. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is CG is well run, clean, and the people are friendly. It is easy to find and the spots are level. However, we had to get up in the middle of the night and close the windows as the pulp mill was in full operation and very smelly. It is close to both Golden Corral and Walmart. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
An older campground, typical KOA. Staff was friendly, sites were wide and long enough, but were unlevel gravel. Used for an overnight. Would probably drive a little more next time and find another park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The Smell of Money. That is the title of a paper stapled to the park map when you check in. What they mean is the park is within smelling distance of a local paper mill. Depending upon the direction the wind, you can either open your RV windows to fresh air or to the stench of the paper mill. They call the rotten egg sulfur smell "The Smell of Money" because much of the local economy is based upon the mill and forestry. The park is average at best. They advertise broadband internet, which is spotty. The signal is not that strong, and it just drops the connection at random. It is not reliable. The pool which is advertised as heated and open all year is only solar heated, so in February, it was too cold to swim in even for someone from the North. The hot tub did work. The office staff was friendly and helpful, and they were the best part. I would recommend the park to only those that are passing through and need a place for the night. I would not recommend the park for longer stays. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We found this campground to be one of the best KOA's we've ever stayed at. The grounds were well maintained; restrooms were clean, shower stalls were small butd th there was good pressure and hot water; the sites were long and level, ane staff was friendly. Even though it was under a shedding oak tree, the pool was clean and the spa was nicely hot. The enclosed dog run was spacious and clean. The far end of the park has what they call Premium sites. The grass in this area was greener and there were paved patios. Most interior roads are dirt. The park is about 2 miles from restaurants and shopping. We camped here in a Motorhome.
$42. off-season/weekday/2 people is it any wonder that it was empty. Dirt roads,dirt sites and mud/slop everywere. Another KOA that going downhill. Lots of cable channels and wifi was strong. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stopped for one night. Access from the highway is a steep rise and you may drag your rear bumper or trailer. The park is fairly large with many large pull through sites. Some shade and some open. It is an older park and it really shows in the shower house. Toilet tank lid missing and the signs of age like rotted wood, missing paint, and broken shower heads were evident. The single biggest problem with this particular campground is the horrible smell coming from the local paper mill. This could be a real issue for someone with respiratory problems. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is OK, great for a 1 night stopover. Facilities are numerous but not all of a good quality. Pool and jacuzzi are good but activities are of poor quality such as the golf pool and table tennis. Staff were very friendly. Park was very quiet and we had choice of sites. I would visit again for a stopover but nothing much to do in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For a KOA, this park is unimpressive (although the price is lower than many other KOA's). Perimeter sites are un-level and not well-developed. There is Wi-Fi and cable, and Verizon coverage is good. The campground also has a lighted, fancy miniature golf course. Be aware that there is a paper mill in the area, so when the wind is from the wrong direction it can be smelly (we had a north wind during our stay, and there was no odor). We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park had a nice swimming pool, and putt-putt golf course. The playground was ok, but not anything special. The laundry wasn't big enough, we had to wait quite a while for a free washer / dryer. The sites were gravel, but adequate. I felt like I was being gouged by KOA again as the price was really high for the area. Seemed to be lots of permanent residents in the park. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was just our 2nd time in our RV and our first in a KOA. Decided to try this one as it was not real far from home and wanted to see if the internet and cable TV would work. Both worked fine. We stayed in A8 and it was patially shaded. No problems with any loud noise at night even though there seemed to be alot of long term campers. It was really hot and we went to the pool. Unfortunately the temp in the pool was almost as hot as it was outside. Neighbors that came in Saturday night, left for a couple of hours and left a dog that barked almost the whole time they were gone. Appears the owners are working on the back part of this park. Looked like they were adding spots. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The pull through's are not very long if you are 45ft plus towing a second vehicle. You would have to unhook. Lots of low hanging trees on the exit road. Long coaches approach exit onto the highway at an angle, "Big Dip". Good over night stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park has large pull through sites, with shade available on some sites. Has friendly, helpful staff. Continental breakfast is available on Saturdays; served free waffles the day we visited. Unfortunately on the morning we were here, there was an odor from a nearby papermill; certainly not the fault of the park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Based on previous reviews we weren't sure about stopping. The start of heavy rain convinced us to try it. We just returned from our second trip to Alaska, so based on a lot of campground stays, this KOA is better than most. Front rows near office have a clear shot for DirectTV. Cable TV has has improved to 68 channels including FNC. Shopping is close by. The Wi-Fi was OK. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Paid for 5 nights and stayed 4. They do have shaded spots, (I requested one at time of reservation and was told no shady spots). There are lots of fulltimers at the back of the park. Looks like they have a nice pool but I didn't use it. The Wi-Fi was good, the cable TV was terrible. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Not a bad campground but not great either. Sites and roads are packed sand separated by grass. Size site is adequate. Price high for facility but normal for KOA. Most sites are shaded - not a good thing for us. Could not get satellite TV, campground cable is basic-CNN, 4 local channels and a few others. No FOX News, no ESPN, TNT, SPEED or any premium movie channels. Decent Wi-Fi for us. Grass between sites needed cut when we were there, perhaps due to lots of rain recently. Nice pool, small playground and small fenced dog run. There was a bad odor in the air part of the day (paper mill?) that cleared towards evening. OK for overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A KOA park. The pool was very clean and the Wi-Fi weak at my site. I thought it was very pricy for this time of year. There are not many choices in this area. The staff was friendly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a horrible park to stay in. It seemed fine at first everyone seemed very nice. We got settled in and decided to go for a swim, the pool that was supposed to be heated was not it was freezing cold! The spa was very dirty to where debris was floating all around in a very small spa. The owners are butt holes they complained about towels being hung outside!!! Then they said our dogs were barking and could not be left alone not even in our motorhome. Well, are we supposed to take them to the pool area (where they are not allowed)? So this is not a pet friendly park at all. I would advise you bring some good bug repellent because the bugs carry you off! Also the breaker kept flipping several times during the night! Huge acorns fell on our sky lights causing damage! We stayed for about 2 weeks during that time the pool was closed most of the time and their daily activities were a joke! Most of the activities involved the pool which was either too cold or closed! I can not believe they are actually called a KOA. It's a insult to KOA's name!! We camped here in a Motorhome.

This KOA is a good big-rig stop. Level pull-thrus, convenient, spacious. Staff is friendly and very helpful. We would stay here again, and probably will when we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great overnight stop with good size pull-thrus. They also have shadier spots with larger sites for people who stay longer. We would use this campground again. It has free cable and WiFi. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here in our 5th wheel for two nights and got a free pancake breakfast and Superbowl Party dinner. This is a great park that is clean,friendly and safe. Perry has a number of RV parks that look run down as does most of the town. RV'ers would use this as a stop on the way to another destination. I would not feel safe in some parks we passed by. This is a good time to use a well run KOA Campground. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is the second time we have stayed at this park; it seems cleaner than last spring. A quiet park just south of Perry with long pull-thrus, gravel sites and others for other types of camping. There are paved roads through the park and much grass plus a table for each site. The staff is friendly and helpful. There are weekend evening activities for campers and food is available on site (pizza and sandwiches). Waffles are available on the weekends. Laundry has a porch with rockers and restrooms and showers are clean. There is good cable and wifi. We like this park and will return again. We downgraded because we did have difficulty leveling. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We loved this RV park - came for a few weeks and stayed almost a year! Friendly staff with beautiful wooded and/or sunny sites. The pool is extra nice and so are the pet walk and pet fetch area. I've heard the pool will be open all winter this year. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Perry, Florida has certainly seen better days. Still, there’s an old Florida feel to the location that makes a stop or brief stay here, enjoyable. I75 has created a sufficient while not necessary bypass to Perry yet a diversion to old Rt 19 would be worthwhile to those heading for but not in a rush to get further south or north. The Perry KOA is, well, a KOA. In a word predictable. Adequate facilities, including cable tv and wireless internet that work. Attentive and competent staffing a decent location and an attempt to provide an array of interesting activities. Good snack-bar with pizza etc... delivery to your unit. The transient, pull-through sites are a bit tight (except D row) so if your planning on spending a couple of days request the wooded sites. Would certainly stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Spacious lots, nice and quiet campground. We chose a back-in lot to save a few $, and had to do some leveling. Showers are large and clean, and each have a shower chair. Fenced in dog run, but dummy me, I couldn't figure out how to open the gate! Large oak trees with a few open spaces for satellite setup. Good Wi-Fi signal, free for multiple computers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have now stayed in this camp ground 3 times and will continue to go back. We have 2 kids under 7 years old and this place is perfect. The kids enjoy the playground and the pool as the adults enjoy relaxing while kids are happy. The managers and staff are wonderful to deal with and were very helpful to us on our first ever motor home adventure. This is a great place if you don't need to be entertained by planned activities. We loved it just the way it is. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a better than average KOA. Access was easy in and out, restrooms very clean, and sites were nice and level. Wi-fi is available, and staff is friendly and very helpful. Would return here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Ditto to everything the previous reviewer said. Immaculate restrooms--they look brand new. My Verizon signal was strong and WiFi was excellent. You do have to park on the grass and it's a little confusing about where to go, but there were very few rigs there, so I guess it didn't really matter. I got FHU under some shade. I would have rated higher if there had been gravel or concrete sites and maybe cable or a pool. The people are perfectly friendly and it was an easy in and out for a one night stay on my way to Orlando. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is quiet little campground like other reviewers said that is perfect for a stop over, which is what we did. The grassed area is level and easy in and out for us. You can choose partial or full hookups. The store next door has supplies and fresh food at their deli from 5 am-4 pm. Everything was very clean and neat. Wi-Fi was strong and with an internet signal, we had no need for TV so didn't try. Store staff was very friendly. This would not be a destination campground, but when on the road and time to stop, this fit the bill for a relaxing evening. The only negative which is not their fault is a very weak ATT cell signal, but that can be worked around with Wi-Fi and a Google phone number. We would stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Quiet, little park a few miles off the highway. Office is located within the convenience store next to the park. Sites are all grass and for the most part pull through FHU. There is some road noise, but it is from a two lane county road that quiets down around 10:00. Sites are mostly covered in shade so satellite TV may be problematic. Water pressure was low (40 psi) so showers in our coach were longer. The convenience store is well stocked, clean, and has hot food available as well as fuel. Bathhouse and restrooms were very clean and maintained. It is a great stop-over park, but I would not make it a extended stay park because of distance to larger town facilities. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice basic overnight spot with grass sites. Fantastic bathrooms and showers that were absolutely spotless. There is traffic noise. The layout of the park is confusing - make sure to get exact directions. Sites 32 and 33 have low and close trees. They are not really pull through sites. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very clean restrooms and showers. Friendly people. Most things to do, are a long drive. Out in the country and quiet. Food at Rocky's was very good. It is a gas station with lots of stuff and food. Long sites with trees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Next to Rocky's Convenience Store 4 miles west of Perry on US 98. Restrooms are some of the cleanest we've see. No graveled pads, RV's park on large grass back to back hookups. Many shaded sites, which are not very satellite friendly. However the staff is excellent. The store has diesel pumps for trucks behind the store. The store has a hot food counter and has many items to stock your RV's kitchen. A very good seafood restaurant is within walking distance. Overall a laid back place that caters to hunters and fishermen. No activities for children, just a good place to overnight for the traveler. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Not a perfect park but it's clean, grassy and shady and at $19 full hookup better than others at much higher price. I stayed here 4 days with no problems. Sawmill not noisy, very few permanents and very quiet. Only problem: office smells of too many cats, but not the campgrounds. We camped here in a Motorhome.
[ 2 / 10 ]
Agree completely with previous review. Sawmill operates from 7:00 A.M. to midnight. Sounds like jet planes next door. Would not recommend. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The facility is located next to a production saw mill. This facility runs for 16 hrs. a day with heavy noise levels. The permanent units next to the park are very poor quality. Most have a fence with a guard dog in the yard. We arrived before other units starting to arrive. Another camper warned us that this was not a real safe area. When about 10 other units came into the park, we felt more secure. The park is behind an older motel and uses common facilities. The owners are older and have lost some control due to the amount of work required and the age of the facility. Although the sites are pull-thru, they are very difficult to enter. They advertise big rig sites, but this is a big exageration. I will never use this facility again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
