Typical KOA--good facilities, strong Wi-Fi, etc--except that it was cheaper than most, and noisier than most. I-35 is just a few yards away, and there's an active train line behind the park (last train ran at 1:00 am). If noise doesn't bother you, it's a good deal.

The $26 includes the $4 day use fee for out-of-state guests. This park was quiet, with trails, lots of wildlife, reasonable facilities (though the wife thought lighting was insufficient). Note that Wi-Fi is available only at the visitor's center, which closes in the early evening.

A KOA in all but name: big, well-developed, by a major road (which at least is not a highway), good amenities, but noisy and somewhat expensive. Our site was right next to a Fedex shipping facility, which was noisy, and a golf course, which was being renovated, so that earth moving equipment was making noise. Electric and water are located together for pairs of sites, which mean your hose or electric cable may not reach if you are on the "wrong" side; we had to borrow an extension cord. As others have said, a single bus ride takes you to the wonderful Riverwalk area.

Nice shady campground, set back far enough from the road that noise was not a problem. Good facilities, strong Wi-Fi signal. Construction in the area (along I-35) made driving a little more troublesome than it probably will be in a month or two. We'd come here again.

As others have said, this place is hard to find (just an "RV" sign on the road--nothing with the campground name), and the roads are in poor shape. Some traffic noise. Wi-Fi too weak to use. The laundry facilities were not even hooked up.

What gives here? How can anyone rate this campground, which is really a parking lot (albeit a neat and clean parking lot), a 10/10? Granted the amenities are first-rate, Wi-Fi signal is strong, and so on; but there is zero natural beauty, no view, no nature, save a few saplings here and there. If this place rates 10/10, what score can we give to spectacular campgrounds with great views, like Campfire Lodgings in Asheville? A campground is more than a Wi-Fi signal and a heated restroom, in our opinion.

The places some folks pick for a campground. Utterly amazing. It's bad enough that this CG is just a few yards from a major road, with all the traffic noise that this entails; it is also less than 100 yards from an active rail line, and trains go by once an hour or so (and always sound their horn, full blast) up until 2 am, and starting at 7 am in the morning. Other than this, the campground was reasonable, but we would never, ever come back to anyplace as noisy as this. Probably the noisiest night we've ever spent anywhere.

The ONLY problem we had with this campground was the Wi-Fi. We were at site 34, far from the office, and got no Wi-Fi signal at all. Called the office to complain, and was told that Wi-Fi is variable, big rigs are in the way, yada yada yada. All nonsense of course. I was counting on Wi-Fi to get some work done, and our site simply didn't have it; I ended up parking in front of their office for a half-hour to do some research and send off work. They need another repeater, probably in the building by the swimming pool, to cover the entire campground. Other than this it was a truly lovely place, and would have rated 8/10 at least. Highly recommended if Wi-Fi is not an issue for you.

We were at the Atlantic beach campsite. Nice natural setting just 70 yards or so from the water; nice to hear the pounding surf at night as you're drifting off to sleep. However, no shade, and no screening of any kind between sites. Showers and bathrooms not entirely enclosed; we didn't use them, wouldn't want to. This was the biggest defect in our opinion. Also, the "laundromat" was a bad joke--one washing machine and one dryer, both outdoors! Still, nice overall for short stays.

Nice campground convenient to the beach (a three-four minute walk away); showers and bathrooms were clean and usable. However, we were at one end of the campground (site 137) just a few yards from an intersection, and traffic noise was a minor problem. Worse, though, this campground advertises free Wifi, but the signal at our site was very weak--I was able to connect only about a quarter of the time. All in all, and given the price ($34 for 30 A with no sewer; $39 with sewer), not wholly satisfactory.

Owner very friendly, and had many suggestions for local sightseeing. Wifi signal was strong, and showers were great--individual rooms with toilet and sink. Unfortunately some idiot in the neighborhood had to fire up his Harley repeatedly at 1 am. And the bugs (sand flies) were pretty bad. The owner offered to sell us some bug lotion for $5.50, while admitting that it worked for some people, not for others. We made do with our own bug spray, but these people need to implement some solution to deal with bugs.

A mostly nice full-amenity RV park, convenient to Jacksonville. WiFi signal very strong, no significant problems. A few nits: 1) Traffic noise from the highway is bad at the entrance to the park--we were maybe 50 feet from the office. Further back in the park seems to be much quieter. 2) Laundry prices are fairly ridiculous at $1.75 per (very small) washer load, and $2.00 for a dryer cycle. 3) The showers were dark and somewhat cold. We will stay here again, hopefully further back in the park where it's quieter next time.

Very nice and quiet, with sites on the lake. Waterfowl, other wildlife abundant. One large white goose (nicknamed "Fred" by the camp host) had been fed by the people previously occupying our site, and so loitered around our trailer and was very vocal most of the time we were there; we studiously ignored him, and by the end of our stay we heard less honking from him. Would have rated this higher, but the wife found the showers very hard to use.

Quite nice overall, but as another reviewer said, some of the sites are not level, and because many sites are carved out of a slope, you have to be extra careful blocking your trailer, to make certain it doesn't end up in the lake. Nice and quiet in the evenings. The park is maybe 30-40 minutes from downtown Atlanta. WiFi is not free; I paid $20 for one week of WiFi usage, and then often didn't get a strong enough signal. However, our site was on the outermost edge of the campground, and whenever I absolutely needed Internet I was able to take my laptop to the office/pavilion area, where the signal was very strong.

Very nice campsite overall, pleasant and with several sites on the lake, one of which we had. Toilets, showers, laundry were clean and functional. Would have given this perhaps 8/10...except that some nitwit in the parks system decided to allow motorboats on the lake. As a result, all Saturday afternoon we heard nothing but boats and jetskis racing up and down the lake. Great fun for the few people in the boats, I'm sure, but a huge source of aggravation for the dozens of people camped close by. Really too bad that a boneheaded decision to allow motorboats on the lake effectively spoils this as a campground, at least on the weekends. We would only come back on a weekday, and would stay away from the lakefront.

Nice secluded area, generally very quiet. Owners were super-friendly. Shower rooms were kept heated and were quite clean. Excellent place to stay.

Very nice, well-maintained campsite. Some sites were rather close together though. NO CELLPHONE RECEPTION at this campsite (at least none for ATT/Cingular). We would camp here again.

Reasonable campsite. However, our site was just 30 feet from the main road, SR 36, and we heard tractor-trailers passing right by us all night long. Not conducive to a good night's sleep. Sites further back in the park are probably tolerable. No wi-fi; the teenage son of the owners said something vague about an Ethernet connection in the laundry room, but I didn't see anything that looked like a jack there.

I find it hard to believe no-one has mentioned the noise here. This campground is just a few hundred feet south of an industrial park, with a thin strip of woods intervening. We stayed here on a Monday and Tuesday night; Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, the racket from the warehouses just to the north was incessant, with the beep-beep-beep of trucks backing up, hammering which sounded like dumpsters being emptied and slammed back into place, and the like. It may be that the noise is bad only on the north side of the campground. In any case, we don't intend to come here again, except possibly on a weekend. Also, as others mentioned, the owners are often hard to get hold of. Otherwise, though, it was a nice campground--pity about the noise.

Very nice, quiet, beautiful. Reasonable amount of space between sites. No traffic noise--the campground is in the back of the state park, far from SR 46. The park itself, like most Indiana state parks, has numerous hiking trails, one or two of which can be hiked from the campground. We intend to come back.
