This campground has 2 sides, a river (shade) and beach (sun). We were in the beach area. The sites are good size and easy to get into, all are back-in. There is no cable or sewer hookup. There is a designated swimming area which is not the beach area right at the camping area. You can drive, walk, or bike to it. We enjoyed this campground immensely. There are lots of opportunities for riding bikes on trail or road.

This park is very nice, easy in and out. There are gas pumps at the entrance so we were able to fill our motorhome while checking in. The store is well stocked. If you want you can order takeout sandwiches, salads, pizza or wings and they deliver to your site. We did not go into the bar but it looked nice. We would definitely stay here again.

This park was very nice. The store was well stocked and clean. The park is laid out well. We had a pull through site which was level and roomy. The only downside to this park is that it is 5 miles off the highway so if you are a overnight traveler it is a little bit of a drive. Very pretty area and park. We would stay here again.

The park was pretty, staff friendly. We asked for a pull through and got one right across from the office based on other reviewer input. We had to put 3 inches under our tires on the passenger side to level it and to keep our car attached for the night, we had to pull forward so far that we couldn't hook up to the septic. We were told they have a dump station. We would not stop here again.

We enjoyed this park for a visit to Columbia area. We had a large pull through site, with a cement pad. The front part of the park is for the transient or non-permanent travelers. The sites are all very accommodating and certainly plenty wide between rigs. Wi-Fi is extra, currently $4.95 per day with Tengo internet. We'd camp here again.

This is a new park with great accommodations. All of the sites are large, your choice of shade or open. There are currently 55 sites, they are adding on with a plan to get to 150. Fairly close to I-85 so there is some highway noise, not bad though. The front porch at the check-in house is large and has rocking chairs, just a warm country feeling all the way around. We would definitely stay here again, the hospitality is wonderful. Just make sure to get the right turn by the gas station to get here. There's a small blue campground sign, they are working on getting something better up to notify the wary traveler. Wi-Fi worked great where we were for those who are looking for that. By the way, this is a BBQ haven around here for those of you who like to chow!!

This park is about 5 miles off the main highway but has shopping plazas about .3 mile away. If one wanted to eat out, there were several options available almost within walking distance. The park sits on a lake and is very picturesque. We had a site on the end of a row which overlooked the water and fishing docks. It was very nice. However, many of the sunny sites were very, very close together. The people across from us had their awning only part way out so it wouldn't touch the camper next to them. Fortunately for them they were camping together. I would not have been happy with that setup at all. So, for us, I like what we got but if I were going to stay again, I'd call ahead to see what was available. The pool was not yet open for the season. We were there for only one night but enjoyed our short stay.

This park was large and had a variety of sites, many of which were seasonal. There were a lot of activities available including day trips arranged through the office (extra $). There were also park hosted music events (scheduled and impromptu), exercise classes, bingo, cards, quilt shows, dancing, church services. The majority of the people who stay here are retired, so there were few children around. Those who were there were likely visitors for short stays. There are 2 parks side by side, The Oaks and Red Barn RV Resort which was recently acquired by the owners of The Oaks. The Red Barn is much closer to I-75 and not as nice but is improving. The pools (3) are nice, heated, and there is a whirlpool at the one by the office. The jets were not working while we were here but the water was very warm and took the chill off. The down side to this park is that the Wi-Fi was horrible, not owned by the park, and not reliable. There was a $4 per day fee for little to no access. I guess you could go to the library at the park to get web access if you wanted to, we didn't. There is a super Wal-Mart across from the park so you can get groceries and miscellaneous other necessities without going far. Everything else is a drive to get to. We enjoyed ourselves here, would have liked a nicer site but it was OK. If I were going to stay longer than a few days, I would have liked to have more options for what site I stayed on.

The owners were very friendly and accommodating. She took us to our site and made sure we got parked OK. We arrived on a cool day (end of March) and didn't spend a lot of time outside. We did have a brief campfire but then the wind picked up and the temp went down so inside we went. There was limited wi-fi, 2 hour limit. I logged in for about 10 minutes to check some things and once logged out, I was out for good. I didn't inquire further since we were only there for one night. The sites were somewhat tight but since there were not many campers there, we had plenty of space for our 34-footer. Nice spot, very quiet.

This park was just off Route 30 in the Lancaster area, very convenient to the tourist areas of interest. The people in the office were very friendly. The park itself was well maintained and clean but did run alongside a junk yard which was not very attractive. The sites were good sized and had picnic tables and fire rings. The hookups were good, including cable and wi-fi. We didn't use much of the facilities since it was quite early in the year and not terribly warm outside.

This park is small but lovely. It is on the opposite side of a stream from the town of Edinberg. Some sound advice: follow the campground signs to get there. Our GPS wanted to take us down a very steep winding hill over a one-way bridge which would not have been possible with our motorhome. The road that you do take into the campground is also narrow and steep so it is a little hair-raising the first trip down it. The sites were good-sized but required some levelling. The owner is very nice and accommodating. You can walk up the hill to the town which is very quaint. We were only there for one night so were not able to take in some of the shops there. I would definitely return when I could spend a little more time.

The park is quaint and fairly small. It was very clean and the owners were very friendly. We camped in 34' motorhome and were next to a couple of large fifth wheels. The sites were level, not terribly wide but certainly wide enough. There were a lot of birds singing there, it was nice to hear them. Otherwise, the campground was rather quiet. We were transients so only stayed one night. We would stop again. The wi-fi was very good so we could catch up on some needed things while there.

This park was very nice, like a resort. The sites were spacious, paved access with very large picnic tables. Some of the sites were in the open but still had palms and other vegetation to separate them from one another. The shaded sites were a little more private. Everything was very clean and well maintained. The beach was gorgeous. It is about 3/4 mile from the campground which is accessible by foot or bike. There is also a trolley which operates every couple of hours. We biked down and hauled our paraphernalia in back packs and bike racks. On the way to the beach it is downhill so the return could get a bit warm in summer months I would think. We also biked into The Dunes, The Gulf, and toward Santa Rosa. There is a paved bike path which allows for nice riding. Lunch at Goat Feathers was great! The whole area is very pretty. We would definitely stay here again. Reservations are a necessity though!

The park was spacious and had a lot of things for kids to do. We were there in March so much of the outdoor activities were not yet available. I imagine it would be a lot of fun in the summer. There were several ponds to fish from. The water slide went into a separate one but was not yet operational. They had recently installed wi-fi but their router was not working. The person at the office said that access was really only good for 150' or so from the office which means if you need to take care of business, you need to bring your laptop down closer to the office. There is no cable, we managed to get 3-4 channels with our antennae. If we were camping during warm weather, we would not use the tv. There is little else in the vicinity of this park so if you don't have extra transportation and want to do other things, this isn't the best spot to pick. It was a bit over-priced, in my opinion, for this time of year.

We loved this park. The sites were spacious with considerable vegetation providing quite a bit of privacy. There were also fire rings unlike many campgrounds we stayed at in the south. This park is sort of like a botanical sanctuary. There are many nature trails with lots of Spanish moss, we rode our bikes through several of them. The park sits on a river and has a boat launch and docking areas where you can fish from. There are also several ponds, one of which is for swimming. It was too cold in March to consider that option. The town of Brunswick is just a couple of miles away from this park. We want to come back to tour that area. We enjoyed this park immensely and would definitely return. We had full hookups including wi-fi/cable.

The staff was very friendly, they gave us a little goodie bag and provided a escort to our site. It was not a terribly large campground and the sites are somewhat close together. The campground was well maintained and clean. We arrived in the off-season as a transient so we really did not use the outside recreational facilities. I think the fee is a little over-priced for this time of year but I guess they bank on transient business. Several people pulled in as the evening approached and left in the morning. We did the same.

This is not a campground. It is more of a run-down mobile home park which has a few sites available for transient hookups. When we pulled in the office was locked up so we had to knock at the door of a mobile home next to it. A woman answered the door and seemed put-out that we had interrupted her. She radioed her husband who instructed her where we could park. We stayed in a overflow site with water and electric. It overlooked the dumpsters which just about everyone who lived there visited during our less than 24 hour experience. We only stayed at this location because it was close to some friends that we wanted to visit while we were traveling through the area. I did not feel particularly secure at this place so we did not waste much time packing up and leaving the next morning. I would not stay here again, especially for $29.

The park is a few miles off the beaten path but was clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly. We could not hear the interstate, which was nice; more like camping. We were there in the off season so there were not a lot of other campers there when we arrived, but several transients pulled in through the evening. The sites were fairly large toward the back of the park. Some of the pull throughs were a little narrower but certainly adequate. We had full hookups, including wi-fi and cable. I think the price was a little high for what we got in a off-season period though. We were there only one night as we were on a southbound trip.

The park was relatively easy to find though it is tucked back into a neighborhood with some narrow roads. It was beginning to seem like we were headed into a dead end when we saw the campground entrance. There is a gate that another camper let us through; I expect there was probably a call button but did not check. The staff was friendly. We had a waterfront site (about 10 feet from the water) so it was quite picturesque. The site was set up specifically for a motorhome, hookups on left, patio on right. Since we were there in the off season, there were not many other transient campers. There were several seasonals that were not on the water. Those were fairly close together and many were not particularly attractive. I imagine it could feel crowded during peak season as the campsites are not separated by much vegetation and are close together. The hookups were good and we had wi-fi and cable. Our site was a paved pull-in site. It was a good location for transient camping, we stayed one night.
