A gem of a campground if you aren't afraid to dry camp for a few days. Fresh Montana water is available along with the beauty of our home state. We're older and residents, so the fee is dirt cheap. We camped here decades ago in our Westfalia, but now the CG is much more developed and a real beauty.

A nice little overnight spot. Water hook-up is strange, just a PVC hose out of the ground with a valve and fitting, but it works. Electric heaters and AC cost an extra $3.00 a day. Nice shade and quiet. What more can a traveler ask?

Of it's type, it's a great place. Nice shade and great internet. Fairly handy to Zion where RV sites are at a premium now. Traffic noise, but NO trains, which is unusual. We'd come back. The scenery is outstanding.

Nice park, of it's type. Very friendly staff. Laundry is good and sites are level. Good power and water pressure. Lots of trains a ways off, but it's a campground, right? We stayed here in 2011 and now the Wi-Fi is excellent. We'll be back.

The check-in person was very abrupt with us, although there were only a handful of folks in the campground. If you want to do the guided tour, be sure to get reservations online, since it's "privatized." We spent three nights in peace and quiet. Lots of birds around the park. We had a nice hike on the "open" area, but a permit must be picked up at the Ranger Station for that. Not a friendly campground, in my opinion, but the beauty of it far outweighs that. Sites are level with good water and power. I'd like to come back someday...better prepared.

This is a great place, especially if you like to hike and are interested in the original people of the area. The tour to the paintings wasn't available when we were here in '11, but we took it yesterday and it was a very interesting. Our guide had lots of good information. The hike is somewhat strenuous, so bear that in mind. It's hot here already in April. The Rim Hike is a good one too. Lots of birds are passing through on their way north, like us. We hope to return in a couple of years. Very friendly staff too!

This is a beautiful to stay for a few days. There's no Verizon service, but the open WiFi works great. We hiked both days we were here, on the River and then for a few miles on the East Trail to the Ponds and beyond. Lots of birds here, if you're a birder or not. Friendly staff was very helpful. Good roads, but lots of curves that reminded us of our home in Montana. We'd love to return.

Friendly staff in a worn-out park. Sites level, however. Laundromat is iffy due to the problems with one of the two washers; as per the lady who checked us in. Cash or check only. RV parts and accessories available nearby. Good for an overnight, but not much more.

This is a great, quiet and large state park. The sites are large, level and shaded with large trees. The hiking trails are a bit confusing, but the trail map is a good one. We've seen and heard more birds here than anywhere in our travels over the last three months. And, there are gators; we saw one large one sleeping in the heat right next to the trail. Caution is the word. The data connection with our phone is fair to good, but lets us keep in touch with the outside. We saw no maintenance or park vehicles either day of our stay, but the park is very clean. It's well worth going out of your way.

This is a great smaller campground in a large park. Sites are a bit at an angle for water control, but paved and smooth. Fire boxes all have benches placed closely for a good view. The trails, though marked, are still a bit confusing, but show a lot of the beauty of the park. Trees are tall and offer great shade. We loved it here and would come back.

This is an old and tired park. The area itself is covered with unmarked trails, so without some sort of navigation, it is difficult to hike. The sites are okay, but many are not level. The "Dump Station" was overflowing with you know what. I've never seen such a sight in over a hundred parks. It's cheap. That's the only positive. It's owned by the state and run by the City of Gautier, according to the manager. It could use a good overhaul.

Staff is very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately our phone navigator led us to the wrong place. If you use the road address, you will have better luck. We anticipated there being laundry facilities here, but there are NONE. This is a church camp of sorts, but it appears to be the off season, so only a few longtimers here and two of us overnighters. A nice country setting in a large grassy clearing surrounded by woods. Nice!

A nice quiet campground, during the week, anyway. The lake is small, but there are lot of waterfowl and songbirds. The trails are good and interesting. Senior discount yields a twenty percent off for us over 62. There is only one washer and dryer available, but reasonably priced. Some sites are pull-throughs and fairly level. No motorhome propane is available anywhere nearby.

Their was only one loop open when we got there, since demand is low during mid-week. Very friendly and helpful hosts. 20% discount if you're over 62. There is good data coverage and great cell coverage here, too. We hiked about five miles on a great trail along the river. It's very quiet here with the sound of trains in the far distance. We'd love to come back.

This place is an enigma. When we arrived on Saturday, the office was closed. We had reservations, so we found our site, the only empty one here. It was a bit rough and unlevel, but it worked. None of the help was around until we got settled. They were surprised that ANY site was open... the owner included. It's very quiet with a nice pool. It's about an hour's drive into St. Augustine, the reason we were here. Folks, as in Florida in general, are very friendly. Not much to see in the town and no hiking trails nearby, but we liked it.

Another Gem! We love state parks most everywhere and this is another new-found favorite. Lots of birds, especially in Site 58, the last in the row. The only fault I'd mention is low water pressure, but we had water onboard, so showering was no problem. The Cross Florida Trail passes through the park and the Caravelle Wildlife Management Area is nearby with great trails and well-marked. You will LOVE it here! Camp hosts have been here for many years and offer a wealth of information. Enjoy!

This is what camping is all about! An older, smaller park with lots of privacy. The trails are great with wildlife abundant. Saw our first Javelina there, or "wild hog" as they're called here. Very quiet and dark, which appeals to us. Staff is very friendly and excited to see new arrivals. A Gem of a spot, a new favorite for us. Water pressure is a bit low, so bring some in your tank as a supplement.

The Sand Pine section of this campground is great. Newly remodeled, the restroom/shower area is very nice and spotless. Sites are smooth gravel and mostly level. There are several trails for hikers and bikers here as well as water access. The registration folks were the slowest that we've found in our month in Florida. Lots of chatter, but not much action. It took us nearly half an hour to get set up and we had reservations. Avoid going inside if at all possible. It's a quiet place with a few birds stopping by. We'd come back, for sure. Online reservations are the way to go.

A nice, friendly campground in a busy winter hangout. We got Passport America for five nights and then paid "retail", for two. A very nice, new pool there. I'd go back. Wind on the oceanside sites forced some folks to move, so be aware. No trails unless you drive a bit. Excellent shopping in nearby Marathon.

A nice park away from hectic Miami traffic. We used our Good Sam card for a better deal. There's a great walking/bike path around the perimeter of the park too. It's a huge park, but relatively quiet considering its size. Grassy parking spots with large concrete "patios" make up the park. We like it here.

This is a basic campground in a terrific area. The Pole Boat Tour is a real gem, as is the Reptile and Bird area in the park. We enjoyed both immensely. I'd rate it higher, but it's a tired spot. The dumpster was never emptied in our five days here. There is no water available at the dump station, which was a great surprise. We would come back, however, since the area is so beautiful. All of the staff were friendly and most helpful.

Not actually a bad place, but Loop 2 is crowded and a bit noisy for a state park. Sites are very close together. Loop one, for smaller vehicles, is much more cozy and quiet. There are hiking/biking trails just outside the park. The most outstanding feature is the Royal Palm trees in this park. They are beautiful and worth the drive.

We had reservations and got a site right next to the duck pond. Swans, geese, and ducks plus an ahinga stopped by. The park is beautiful, with various species of trees and flowering shrubs. They have propane available. Not far from a public beach and within a short driving distance to premier shell hunting. We loved it here!

Laundry was good and cheap. Folks were friendly. It's tough to find from 60 if you don't get directions. Call and it's easy. Only about a mile from a Costco Warehouse where gas is cheaper. Got the Good Sam discount here.

This is a nice campground with a couple of hiking trails. We had a concrete pad at our site. Restroom/showers are very good and warm. It was quiet and peaceful on a winter's night...

We were here two years ago. A nice park, but only not much to do here. There are lots of birds, though, and the views of the Bay at sunset are overwhelming. We got a discount due to our being Seniors. Staff person not very friendly. Note: if you wash your rig, it costs ten dollars. Person reminded me of this after I had done so. No signs or mention in the Camp Rules. Got through a Tornado Warning, our first, and then came the sun. We hope to be back again.

A bit of a drive takes you from I-12 to a sweet little park in the woods. We were in Site 4, which is pretty much in the open. A simple paved spot, with no "patio" area, which many of the others have. Only a few sites are available for reservations, which we had. I used my "Geezer" pass and got a refund via mail or to my credit card. The girl at the check-in wasn't sure which method would be used. Lots of great boardwalk trails and a fishing pond. Go out early on your hike to see the numerous birds. Life in the swampland is amazing. Well worth the ten miles or so travel.

This is a nice, somewhat out of the way, campground. Not many folks here in mid-week, but it picks up on the weekend. Winter here is a LOT different from where we live and that's good. The 3.75 mile hiking trail starts near the entry center and is marked with red painted blazes. It's a nice hilly route with great water views and lots of birds. The staff were friendly. Alexandria is only about fifteen miles away for shopping and great restaurants. The traffic and road layout in town is a bit on the crazy side, but we survived. The laundromat at the camp is more than adequate and reasonably priced. Lots of lighting in the campground will satisfy the security-conscious folks. We'd surely return. We got a 10% discount for being older folks.

We found site 5 near a beautiful, reflective slough to be perfect for us and level. We're the only folks in this 36 site loop. The trails led us to numerous birds, but especially numerous woodpeckers. The ranger who checked us in gave us lots of information. We spent nearly a half hour with him and learned lots. Very few people are here after the "long weekend", so it's peaceful and quiet. The sloughs are filled with cypress trees and the woods with oak, beech, and pine trees. A real nature preserve filled with interesting flora and fauna. We'd come back!

We stayed in site 29, a nice pull-through with no low-hanging branches which abound here. No Wi-Fi, but there is good Verizon coverage for a hotspot. No cable TV at our site and poor over the air signal. Great trails to the falls and lots of birds and deer. Staff were very friendly. Quiet during the week, but fills up on the weekend, but quiet at night. We have been using the Texas State Parks Pass which saves a lot in the long run. There are very many parks in the state.

A sweet spot for a couple days rest on our way to FL from MT. Too cool to swim at 41 degrees, but a beautiful, quiet spot. The showers are basic and the area isn't heated. Great WiFi from the phone, but the TV is poor and mostly analog. Not a good investment for $3/day. We bought the Texas State Park Pass and got half off the second night and free entrance for a year: in case we get lost. We'd return, but in warmer weather.

Used Passport America this year, thus the rate. New managers now, but volunteers checked us in. Friendly and helpful. Gravel, fairly level sites. Cold here, freezing, so didn't hook up water. A nice place to stay for a few days to check out the area. Our second stay here and we'll come back.

A beautiful campground, just across the highway from Swan Lake. Most sites are paved and mostly level. The restrooms were clean and water was available throughout the park. As are many Forest Service CGs, this one is privately managed. The price of $15 is a bit higher than we've paid for government run CGs. We camped in a 31 foot RV and had plenty of room. Most sites could handle two rigs easily. We'd come back, for sure.

We looked for this CG for quite a while before entering Concrete and getting directions. Our route was steep and curvy, but beautiful. It's about ten miles from Concrete. No GPS most of the way, but good Verizon and decent internet here via the phone. We are one of three camp rigs here today. It's a beautiful place with all but electricity. Porto Potties suffice. No showers. No charge to camp in this off-season.

An excellent CG in a NP. Quiet and serene with several hiking trails that start from the park. Sites in B and C loops are pretty steep, but some in A and D loops are fine. Only a few pull-throughs, but we found a back-in that fit our 31' coach. The sign states a maximum of 27', but we found several that would work, including two right on the White River. We hope to return in the not-too-distant future.

A little park surrounded by the town. A bit snug getting into a space, but adequate. Beautiful green lawn and well-kept. The "hidden" speed bumps are a surprise, so beware! Worked for us after a 200+ drive.

This campground is simple. Water is available at only one area. There are only ten sites, only five of which are "first-come-first-served." Reservations can be made via phone or online, but it's a bit vague on the website. There are birds galore here and the Grassland is a well-known birding area. The bathroom was dirty and had no TP when I arrived. After two days, the "Hosts", who did wave, cleaned and re-supplied them. There are a few short birding trails here. It's an out of the way spot, but the only campground that I could find in Northeast Colorado. There is excellent Verizon service, due to the closeness to Greeley, CO. Lots of nice tall poplar trees give some sites excellent shade. I used my "Geezer Card" to get half off the going rate. You'll like the peace and quiet.

As mentioned before, this is a decent spot for a stopover. The $25 doesn't include the dump station. It's an additional $5. It's quiet here and peaceful. Lots of tent sites available. I'd stop here again if ever in the area.

This is your basic, six-site campground. Not too clean, but serviceable. Sites are a tight go, even for a 32 foot Class A. Virtually no maintenance, but the pit toilet area was clean. Lots of boaters and fisherman frequent the area. Near the Interstate and Highway 6, so expect lots of traffic noise. Location is beautiful, near the Eagle River.

Beautiful location. Sites aren't very level, but do-able. Scenery is outstanding. The drive from the highway is exciting, even for an ol' mountaineer like myself. Campground host never did show himself, but was there, I presume. I'd go back, if even just to see get more "red-rock therapy."

This park has seen better days. It does offer some shade and a stop on your way through Utah, but needs some work. The laundromat is new and very well equipped, but was dirty. There's an RV wash area, but it was very dirty and not appealing. The staff is friendly, but I didn't feel welcomed at check-in. It's quiet. The town itself is near it's end, it appears. A decent place to spend a day or two to wash clothes and rest, is the best that I can say. The price included the Good Sam discount, but it's still overpriced. Wi-Fi is excellent, however, as is Verizon service.

This park is located at the end of a narrow road about nine miles from Cannonville, Utah. It's beautiful and in good condition. Showers and bathrooms are new and well-kept. The staff was most helpful and friendly. There are several trails in the area on which to explore the hoodoos. Generators may be run only from noon to four, which makes it very quiet. There are only a few first-come-first-served sites, so if you're serious, a reservation would be wise. A few sites have water and electricity, but they are at a premium and cost $25. Worth the trip if you like to explore.

This campground is a Gem. The colors in the canyon are the brightest red that I've ever experienced. The host was most helpful and friendly. It's quiet there, in spite of being near the highway into Bryce Canyon NP. There is actually Wi-Fi in the loop on the right, but Verizon works adequately for phone and text is the other loop. There is a great trail, some five miles in length, that rivals those in Bryce. It's on my list for a return visit.

The ride from Kenab to this park is one of the most beautiful I've driven. The park is a gem. The colors in the area are amazing. Sunset is the high-point of the experience. Trails over the dunes are good and there is an ATV trail network available. There is absolutely no communication available, but there is a pay phone at the Visitors Center. Staff was friendly. Restrooms/showers are new and great. The road into the area is narrow, but really worth the drive.

This campground is located on a lava flow and about twenty miles from the Wupatki National Monument, a pueblo from the indigenous people. There is no sign on the highway, so just follow the signs for the Sunset Crater area. There's one trail (road) leading the former fire lookout. The Verizon service is weak, but texting works. It's in a quiet and beautiful area. I'd go back. I paid half-price using the handy Geezer Pass.

I found this campground on this site. It's old but okay for a couple of days to see the NP and especially the Painted Desert. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The sites are actually long enough for two long rigs. The town is nearby for shopping and other sights to see. Restrooms and showers were exceptionally clean. Laundromat has eight washers and six dryers and is reasonably priced. I used my Good Sam card for this price. I'd stay here again, if ever in the area.

This is my first time here, but will repeat the next time we're in the area. The park is small and friendly. The owner is helpful and likes to visit. A good thing. Lots of the folks stay the winter here, but I easily found a nice pull-through. The laundry is clean and reasonably priced. Your GPS will take you through a residential area, but the easy way is to get off of I-17 at exit 285 and drive the two miles to Horseshoe Bend Drive and turn right. The internet was "iffy", but is now being changed to a cable modem. It will improve more with time.

One of our most favorite campgrounds in Arizona. Sites are huge and spaced quite far from your neighbor. If you like birdwatching, this is the place to be. Good trails for hiking and even a competitive mountain bike track. Quiet and remote, even considering the closeness of Fountain Hills.

The folks are very friendly here, but the park is old and tired. We were warned by a current camper here to stay near the front, since the back sites are pretty "trashy." I didn't look, but took site 10 and it's fine. Nice views of the Santa Rita mountains are just outside your window. The internet link which I used was very quick, but is an "open" link from nearby. Propane is available here too.

This is an excellent park near the beautiful Santa Catalina mountains. Lots of hiking trails and a few geocaches to find. Be careful when making reservations online. I wasn't and ended up drycamping for most of our days here. The website is a bit confusing... We did check in with the ranger station for cancellations and had power and water a few nights, but it was a bit of a hassle to do so. Most of the folks there were friendly and competent. The showers and restrooms are clean and well-thought out. We'll be back for sure... Remember your hiking boots and poles for a real adventure. The flowers were amazing this year.

An amazing place! Be sure to hike the Desert View trail daily and you'll get much more out of your stay. We saw different cacti in bloom every time. The showers don't get very warm in March, so beware. The Verizon service is excellent and thus we had interned via tethering and could keep up on email and such. Dark here and a sky filled with beauty. Near the the top of my Top Ten List, for sure. We're "Geezers", so paid only half of the daily rate.

A good park. We had awning problems and the owner sent us to just the right place in Goodyear. Friendly staff. Gravel sites with picnic tables, sculpted by the desert sun. Nice open desert for hiking through a gate in the park fence. Laundry is a bit on the pricy side, but large and clean. Gila Bend, itself, was a disappointment in that it is very depressed with lots of closed businesses. Several geocaches within thirty miles and great scenery. The Sonoran Desert National Monument is closed, however, due to a lawsuit. A huge disappointment for us, since that's what drew us here.

This is a large park with lots of park models. We were placed near the edge with full hookups. No defined area at our site, number 39. No picnic table or other usual conveniences here. The pool and hot tub are beautiful. Good laundry facilities here. Our neighbors decided to set up their "party area" near the front side of our coach and partied on, but retired early, much to our relief. Quiet at night, with the same trains we heard when we were at Salton Sea SRA, but one gets used to the sounds. A beautiful desert area with mountains in the distance. Much more private than the parks in Yuma and much more affordable.

A great park with lots to do in the area, especially if you like to hike and/or geocache. Remember to take your shower shoe with you, since the floor "mats" are a bit much for my old tender feet. That aside, the staff, hosts and guests are all very friendly. If you like unusual aircraft, you'll enjoy the "Ospreys" making VTOL's at the local "airport". The town shuts down pretty much during the week, but comes alive with man off-roaders on the weekends, due to the OHV park nearby. We'll return here for sure, if we come back to the area. Be sure to check out Font's Point for amazing views of the desert and the badlands.

Friendly staff and hosts. Wi-Fi very weak and often unavailable, but great Verizon signal. The floors of the bathroom/shower combo were dirty, but the shower itself was clean. Gravel sites, not too level, but tolerable. Lots to do in town and in the desert, for sure. A great place to visit if you're into RVs, geocaching, and shopping the huge flea markets. Scenery abounds with sunset and rises hard to beat. Arizona in winter is great.

This place is a gem! We were looking for a COE CG near Umatilla and found this spot. We paid half price using the "geezer card." It's quiet, green and peaceful.

A beautiful setting overlooking the lake. It's very primitive, with water available from a running spring a short ways away. No hiking trails and very little access to either lake. The River Marsh CG, about eight miles away is NOT for an RV, but for vans and tenters. Overall, lots of wildlife and sheer beauty. The road there, however is terrible and shook most of what we carried to the extreme. I'd never do it again in an MH. The views are truly amazing, however.

Not much grass between sites. Sites are terraced and very close together and many near the busy highway. The wifi, an important thing for me, is weak. Good Verizon phone coverage, so I used the tethering option. Handy to Mount Rushmore and other spots. Very clean and new restrooms and showers. Recycling bins for cans and such, which is a rarity. Friendly and helpful staff.

This is a nice campground. The laundry is clean and reasonably priced. The highway noise is somewhat annoying, but being on the road for months, it's tolerable. Staff very friendly. Our site was level and clean. Restaurant and larger grocery store are within walking distance. Wi-Fi is a bit weak, but tolerable. Excellent Verizon access. Nice clean swimming pool near bathhouse. We'd stay here again, no question about it.

We we're looking for an overnight spot and this worked fine. Lake City CG was full, due to flooding, so we came here. The host was very friendly and after I called, she came to our rig to pick up payment. It's quiet with a steady SD wind. Sites are fine, level and clean. Basic, but what more can you ask?

We got a significant AAA discount here. We were the only unit here. Very quiet. The owners were very friendly and helpful. There's a good laundromat right next door and a large grocery store just across the street. A great place for an overnight. The pull-through sites are all at a significant angle and the gravel is soft, which makes blocking difficult.

The downside: $6 charge to dump and the showers and bathrooms hadn't been cleaned for the season. Sites are "uniquely" level, but we found a good one in site 19. The upside: A huge park with lots of trails and places to walk or bicycle. Sunsets are great! Staff is friendly, but not too adept at taking care of the needs of RV campers. Self-registration is the deal here, but works. We'd come back.

This is a large park with long pull-through sites. The staff was very friendly. The laundry was fine, but it was a cold day and the room was not heated. Very quiet for as many rigs here in our area. We'd stay here again.

This is a decent park. It is very busy in the summer, but we got here a day before officially opening. A call ahead did the trick. There was only one other rig in the area. We got a cheap rate since all the amenities, namely WiFi, picnic table, weren't set up yet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I'd definitely stay here again during the less busy season.

Heed the warning on where the park is located. It's directly on your right, right after you come down the hill on Hwy 832. We missed it and had to do the loop. The staff is very friendly and helpful, but the camp is old and tired. The electrical hook-up was so far away that I needed an extension cord. It was provided by the park guy. Water was just 25' and my single hose did the job. It's just an overnight sort of a place.

This is a beautiful park! Even without water and sewer hook-ups, I still rate it a ten. During the week there were only about six RVs here. The sunsets over Lake Ontario are an outstanding feature you dare not miss. Staff were friendly and helpful. Reserve America does the reservations, so expect to pay a fee and a fee for being from out of state. We'll surely stay here again if our travels lead us here again. Convenient enough to the Niagara Falls, a Don't Miss.

This is a beautiful state park. The cost for electric only included a $9 service charge through Reserve America. You need pay it only once per reservation. It also included a $5 Out-of-State fee. Our site wasn't level and it's difficult to tell on the internet how level a site will be. A call to the office may clarify the nature of the sites. Sites 5-9 are near a busy highway. Be aware of this. Restrooms and showers are very modern and clean. Lake Cayuga is a large and very inviting lake with boat access and swimming available.

Our site was not level, but tolerable. The park is old, but pleasant. The owner met us and helped us to park. The wifi is spotty, on and then off. Verizon coverage is good, so my phone worked well with the internet. There are hiking trails here. Due to the early season, we were the only travelers here. Nice and quiet park.

It's early in the season, so we paid much less than the usual $50/night. This is a camp, more than an RV park. Spaces are large and fairly level. The owner took us, on his golf cart, to a riverside site and then one nearer the entrance to give us a choice. We took the latter, since the Wi-Fi is stronger. Both of the owners are very friendly and helpful. After Sunday morning, the park was virtually empty, so it was a peaceful and quiet stay.

This is a busy place. More of a camp than anything else, with numerous seasonal visitors. The staff is VERY friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi at our site is fine. Signs leading to the park are few and you must be attentive to find it. Our GPS got us lost, but the phone and Google Map navigation did fine. Bathrooms are old, but clean. Showers are too and are of the pay variety.

We got the Good Sam discount here. It's the most we have had to pay in over four months on the road. The season hasn't started here, so it was very quiet. The wifi is good, but Verizon connectivity is poor. The bathrooms and showers were clean, but old. The scenery is beautiful and it's a pleasant stop over.

This is the first state park in Maryland. It's well used and could use some updating, but it's in a beautiful and peaceful location. Our site was not level, but using blocks made it fine. The access from Hwy 40 is fine, but avoid the other entrance due to the low clearance at the tunnel. The campground roads are rough, so pay heed to the chuck holes and you'll be fine. It's handy to the madness of Baltimore's wild traffic and other preferable sights. We'd return since it IS a beautiful, quiet spot.

Would have rated this CG a 9 if there had been water hook-ups at our site. The site was level. Lots of mud and standing water around, due to the spring season. The park is very secluded, especially considering the area. Lots of birds in the area. One long trail which is heavily used, but scenic. The bluebells were out and quite beautiful. We'd come back again to stay.

If you require Wi-Fi, avoid this place. It's controlled due to a very poor provider. It's a weak connection and "re-sets" every two hours. Very frustrating. The roads are gravel as are the sites. Nice trail to a small pond. Very friendly staff. We would NOT come back, however.

A beautiful oasis after a wild day driving from the Outer Banks. We picked site 4 at the recommendation of a friendly host at the office. Nice and private with shade. The do charge a $5 "transaction" fee for the first night, but so it goes. The walking trails are decent and also open to bicycles. The staff was friendly and helpful. We got to pick our own site and then call in your location. We'd stop by again. It's a very nice place.

A very nice and friendly campground, which I found here on rvparkreviews. That's the reason we're here. I'd rate it higher if the access roads weren't so narrow. In an RV, they're one way at best. It's really out in the boondocks, but with all the amenities. It's about 45-50 miles from the sites we wished to see. Lots of room for big rigs. A nice pond and excellent woods to enhance the sunrise and sunset. Walking/hiking are here though. We'd stay again, for sure. We got the Good Sam discount.

This is a cozy and informal little park on the Neuse River. We saw nowhere to sign, so called and were told to pick a spot and come back to the Nature Center and sign up. The Nature Center is very interesting especially for kids. They have several exhibits of both live and stuffed animals. They are closed on Mondays. It's a quiet park and the sites are fairly level. Only a few of them are appropriate for big rigs. We had plenty of room for our 31' MH. Not much to do in town on a Sunday, but it's a great place to stop off. Very few trails are found here, but the river and pond are scenic. There's only one shower per side near the Nature Center and they were well used and not very clean. It's a great deal at $12 a night.

A great place to stay, so much so, that we tried to stay another night, but no go. Full up on the weekend. Huge park fully covered with trees. The entry drive is spectacular! Roads in the CG are narrow, but one way and the access is fine. Our Verizon phone worked fine. Very quiet at night, in spite of the nearness of the airport. Beach is close and beautiful with a large pier for fishing. All of the State personnel were friendly and helpful. We'd surely stay here again.

This park is handy to Charleston and sites of interest. It's clean and quiet. We did not pay for the sewerage option. Nice green grass in April. That's a real treat for us Northlanders! Laundry is clean and handy. Speed bumps are frequent, but reasonable and do keep the speeds under control. Friendly folks at the office were a real treat.

Be cautious when you get within ten miles or so from the park or you'll miss the signs. They are located RIGHT at the turning point. No handy turn-around either. It's a bit of a hazard, as is the narrowness of the roads in the park. Most sites slant quite a bit for a motorhome, but ours was fine as the girl who took our reservation did a good job. They use Reserve America, but the cost for a one-day stay, made on the same morning was only $1.60. The only trail in the park was okay, no more. The scenery, in early spring, is beautiful and the lake is great. We'd stay here again.

This is a beautiful park. Nice walking trails with scenic views. Quiet and peaceful with sites of small gravel, raked smooth after each visitor. A real gem that you must not miss. A bit off of the beaten path, which is a good thing. Sites are very large. We got the Senior Discount, which is 20% off in Georgia. A nice touch.

We bought a "Friends of Georgia" annual membership for $30 and got a free night's camping at our next CG included. We also got a 20% senior discount here. It's a beautiful campground, covered with pine and oak trees. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed only one night, but would stay longer since it's quiet and serene. There are hiking trails in the area also. Gray water drain sites are scattered throughout the park.

The road to the park has a couple of surprisingly sharp turns and has a very narrow road once you get past the registration office. There are only thirteen pull-through sites available. We made reservations, but only two sites were available for motorhomes. It's a beautiful place with lots of room. Sites are not level, but we easily blocked up the low side and are nearly level. Staff is very friendly, especially during check-in. We got a 20% discount due to being "seniors". The lake is beautiful! Handy to shopping within 5-6 miles. Hiking trails are available. Don't forget your camera.

We arrived here on St. Patrick's Day, as planned, since my wife is an Irish citizen. The sites are "snug", but there's adequate room to maneuver and have some room for outside activities. "Mr. Kelly" is a most friendly host and welcomed us in a good southern way. We were fortunate in being invited to a party to celebrate the auspicious day and were very happy with the smoked ham and Boston (pork) butts at the Potluck. The closest shopping is only about five miles away. A good, friendly place to stay for an overnighter or a few days.

We got the Senior discount at this park. It's in a beautiful area, about fifteen miles from Savannah. The upkeep leaves something to be desired, but the sites are beautiful. Staff all around are helpful and friendly. Some guided tours are available in the park and there's a small museum in the Interpretive Center. We had made reservations via phone and were allowed to pick our own site from the ten available at the time. Don't forget to visit the Fort Pulaski National Monument when you're here. It's truly a gem.

Lee's is a great park! Nearly all of the sites are pull-throughs, so there's no need to un-hook if you are here for only one night. It's surrounded by very tall trees and has great sylvan views. The laundry is outside on the patio of the office; nice Florida touch! Sites are grass and level enough. We're staying an extra day it's so great.

What a beautiful park! The sunsets are magnificent. We got a senior discount which saved us $5 a night. Great location from which to visit Mobile. The bath and shower rooms are clean and nearly new. There's a boardwalk from which one could see birds, however we saw none. I'd stay there again in a minute! The ONLY downside is that there is no WiFi. Verizon phones worked fine.

This park is a disappointment after the reviews I've read. To begin with, the price has increased six dollars a day due to "An increase in our power rates." Secondly, the power didn't work at the two sites we tried. it was after 4:30PM and the office was closed. Another camper reached the "manager" who guided me to the breaker box where I rectified the problem. Not much service there. The place is tired. It hasn't received much maintenance over the years. It's sad, since it is located in a beautiful area. It's the first time we've not been pleased with a park recommended by rvparkreviews. I'd discourage anyone from staying here.

This is a beautiful park. It was nearly destroyed by Katrina, but is nearly fully functional now. The don't have water hooked up for the water park yet, however. In spite of it's beauty, there are no trails open yet. The road to the park, from either direction, is under construction and is in sad shape. The railroad track crossings demand that you drive very slowly in order not to damage the rear hitch of your motorhome. It's doable, however. Sites are level and full-hookup are well laid out. We'd go back, for sure.

This is an adequate place to park when visiting New Orleans. I would have rated it higher if the restrooms and showers had been clean The same litter on the floors was there for the three days we stayed. The host and hostess are extremely friendly and helpful, however. Sites are quite close together and it's located just next to a railroad yard, but it's quiet enough to get a good night's sleep. The rate we paid was higher than usual, since we stayed here during the weekend prior to Mardi Gras. I'd stay again, due to the convenience in driving to the French Quarter and Uptown areas.

This is a great campground. The Wi-Fi signal is strong here. The hiking trails are well-mapped and easy to find. Lots of wildlife in the area. The road from the north is narrow and runs along the levees and is a bit curvy, but we made it fine in our 31' motorhome with toad. Our neighbors were a bit noisy with their music, but what can one do? It's well laid-out and easy to find your way around. Beautiful scenery, especially with the trees just starting to leaf out. We love it!

A great campground. It's actually closer to Moss Bluff, LA. The road into and in the park is very narrow with some serious curves near the entrance. I took it slowly and had no problem with our 31 footer and toad. The site, number 38, leans a bit, but not enough to need blocking. We're very close to the laundry. This is an unusual thing in a State Campground, but a good thing. The internet signal is strong, but the whole internet thing is odd. I received two emails, so far, that had links to sites. The Louisiana State apparently didn't want me to go there, since access was denied without some unknown password. New to me and odd, to say the least. The staff person was friendly and the area is truly beautiful. Nice trail along the river and various new wildlife i.e. armadillos. Close enough to town for shopping and dining. We'll be here three days, but, so far so good.

This park has been here for ten years, according to the owner. It needs some TLC. The concrete slabs are laden with gravel which could easily be swept up. The restrooms, showers and laundry room smell musty, due probably to a lack of ventilation. It's quiet here, though and easy to find. Owner is friendly. I got a 10% discount for cash. The small store's inventory is not kept up, although a few items are available. Low rating is due to the poor restrooms, etc.

One of the most important things to me is good Wi-Fi since I'm writing a daily Blog. It was weak, in spite of the fact that there were three channels "available".

There are only two pull-through sites here and we had one of them. It was terribly cold here and the sewer line in the shower and restroom had frozen and broken. Water was available, but we used our on-board supply. The park is a few miles from downtown, where one can visit the UFO Museum and Research Center, a worthwhile thing to do. The park was quiet and homey. I'd stay here again as an overnighter.

This is a paved parking lot which is privately owned and operated. There is a NPS campground nearby. The WiFi works only if you're parked near the store. The Showers are of the Pay Variety, $1.50 for five minutes. No Verizon coverage is available. The trail to the Overlook is a great hike, about 3 miles in and out. There are many hikes within 25 miles, of them the hikes in the Grapevine Hills and the Chisos Mountain Basin are outstanding. The Nature Walk near space 18 in the NPS campground is well worth the time and takes you to the bank of the Rio Grande River. Over, I'd return, since the park scenery is amazing. Our little 31' MH seemed like a midget compared to the larger units. The park is fine and has coyotes and many varieties of birds all around the area, if you keep your eyes open.

This is a great secluded park amidst the sand dunes. It was very cold here, so we relied on our on-board water and did fine. The area is very picturesque if you like the desert. The scenic trail near the entrance is great, with bird feeders and water which enticed many birds to stop by. We saw a western cardinal, which was a real treat. Many other species were in attendance also. Quiet and serene says it all. The park worker, Art, was most hospitable and tried to get us water, however the pipes had broken due to the low temps. I'd surely go back. It was great!

This is what I remember most about Texas. This Park is located in the middle of Nowhere, but in a beautiful spot. One thing we learned too late: The Canyon can only be visited with a Guide. The guides only work from Wednesday to Sunday. We're here on a Monday through Tuesday. If you wish to see the petroglyphs, plan accordingly. No Verizon coverage here, but much to my surprise, when I started my Mac to work on the Blog, Wi-Fi showed up. I did get a few great photos of the Texas sunset. Best be quick, since it lasts only a few minutes. Quiet and desolation at it's best. Friendly folks work here, as well as friendly visitors. But that's what RVing is all about, isn't it?

A plain parking area with excellent staff. Wi-fi only works near the office, but Verizon had very good coverage. Nice family room with TV and jigsaw puzzles for all. Good washers and driers. Office open from one to five in the afternoon. Located near the "old town" of Willcox. Closest camping to Chiricahua National Monument for big rigs. Sandhill Crane wintering ground close by, near Kansas Settlement, about ten miles. I'd stay there again, mostly due to low internet price of $18 and friendliness of the staff person.

This park is about three miles out of Huachuca, Arizona. The host was very friendly and helpful, giving us maps of the town of Sierra Vista and brochures of things to visit in the area.

A very nice campground. It's not too green at this time of year, January, but the usual desert plants are here and interesting. The bathrooms and showers are good and warm too. A big thing, for us anyway, is a guided Bird Walk on Mondays at 9:00 AM. We saw one rare bird and many other species during this three hour journey. Staff has been cut drastically, but a willing and able volunteer did an excellent job. There's a marina and small store that are open convenient hours. Only ten miles or so to two small towns for shopping, gas and propane. A good stop!

This is a nice park of it's kind. The sites are large enough for our 31' Coachmen with plenty of room to park our toad. The concrete slab near our step needs replacement and the site is of heavy gravel but is navigable with no problem so far. It's surprising that the water hook-up is on the wrong side, however a 25' hose was long enough to facilitate hook-up. the staff is very friendly and accommodating. We plan on staying for three nights. The rate reflects Good Sam or AAA discount. The newer pull-through sites run over $40. We're not far from Tubac, a small village with interesting shops to visit. We've been staying in Regional Mountain Parks, so we're spoiled at not being in the country, but the park is quiet in spite of it's size.

This park has about a dozen sites with power and water, a few of which are handicapped accessible. It's a beautiful area, but windy and cold, which is to be expected in December.

The Park welcoming center is easy to miss as the sign wasn't very obvious.

Granted, it had snowed a few days before we arrived, but the area had not been plowed. It was hazardous to walk to the restrooms. We used only electric hook-up due to the cold weather. No one was there to take our money, possible due to it being Christmas Eve. Few sights were open and only one other rig showed up. Better than nothing, however. A few trains kept us awake but that's not a bad thing.
