Rate is for off season. Quiet park on Lake Murphysboro. Us and our friends were the only two in the park for 4 nights. Water available and dump station available. Good stable power. Lots of wildlife to see. Kingfisher, geese, eagle, herons, deer, turkey, and squirrel. Plus the town folks who drive through the park and campground to see who is there and what is going on. Trees were turning and very pretty. We've stayed in this park 3 years now and would definitely return again.

Stayed here for 5 nights while visiting family in Charleston. It's a challenge to get in and out of during rush hour. Very nice campground. Our site was in amongst the large motor homes. Great Wi-Fi, full hookup. Take some ant spray with you and spray around anything that touches the ground. Park has 5 or 6 speed bumps and 2 speed humps between the entrance and the back of the park which is a bit annoying if you are in and out much. Playground for the kids is not much, but it's a nice fairly quiet, safe place to stay. We would stay here again.

Stayed here one night as an overnight on our way to South Carolina. First come first serve and we happened to get the last site with electric and water that was open. Nice setting, shade, close to the water. Mosquitoes were pretty thick at dusk, but all in all a nice site. I do think people are putting cheap tents on some sites to make other people think someone is already camping at the site. I saw at least 4 sites that were set up this way with nobody around. Restrooms were clean, did not use the showers.

Nice park. Pretty quiet. Sites are tight, but handled our 38' fifth wheel ok. Sites are gravel with a concrete pad and picnic table. Ours was level side to side and fairly level front to back. Not much extra room to put up a 12x12 sun shelter. Had to squeeze it in. Wi-Fi was good and bath houses were very clean. Close to the parkway on the south end of Pigeon Forge. Trolley stop in the park. Playground for the kids. Pool was clean.

Rate reflects off season. We stayed starting on a Sunday to Thursday. Nice quiet park. Dump station, 30 amp service, water available for fill ups. No firewood in the park this year. Normally there is free firewood. Lots of wildlife, deer, turkey, herons, geese, ducks. Some train noise which is evident both day and night. Fishing on the lake and Lake Kinkaid is close also. About 15 TV stations available on antenna.

Very nice State Park. Half of the sites are electric only. Other half are full hook-up. Full hook-up sites have shade, other side does not. Very nice bike paths, playgrounds. Ice, gifts, sundries available at the old farmstead. We will return here.

Very nice park. Pool wasn't open yet. Sites are big and paved and level. WiFi is available, but not good at all. No bandwidth. Close to the pier, beaches, Gulf Shores and Orange Beach. Lots of eating places close. Nice nature center, small, but nice. They give a nature walk tour of the pier which was nice. Camp store and fishing at the park. Our price reflects the senior discount which I believe is 15%. We spent 6 nights here. We would definitely stay here again and may do a longer stay when we are both retired.

Price reflects the Good Sam Discount. Campground is right off the Interstate. Easy to get to. Nice big sites. Mostly overnighters using it, and that was us too. Gravel sites are level. It filled up on our return trip up I-65, so a reservation might be advisable. Good BBQ place 5 miles south at the Tennessean Truck Stop.

Nice quiet campground. Sits on the Lake with a few lake front sites available. Largest sites will accommodate a 35' rig. No Wi-Fi, but good cell signal. Two campgrounds, one for RV's and one for tent campers. Lake for fishing, showers available but not in the campground. No beach or swimming allowed. Free firewood.

Very nice campground. We camped Labor Day night and the next night. The big weekend was already over and the campground was mostly deserted, but it was nice and quiet. Nice beach although it was too cool to use it. Nature center was closed, but the Lincoln bi-centennial pavilion is a must see and so is the Lincoln Boyhood Home National monument which is right across the highway from the state park. Not many level sites and not many for big rigs. But you pretty much have your choice if you camp during the week.

This park has a long way to go to be in the list of best parks. Cabins are new and nice, showers are new and nice even though we didn't use them. I did look them over though. They had a fire 2 years ago and they still don't have their office and store rebuilt. The pool was not open either. The dump station is only accessible when you pull in so if you need it when you are leaving you have to drive around the campground twice. Water pressure was lousy. We were told that they have to truck in all their water as there is no water table where they are. The WiFi was weak also. This may be because there is no office right now so maybe we were lucky to have WiFi at all.

This was the best of the KOA's that we've stayed at. Clean, well manicured and well taken care of. Staff was friendly and helpful. We stayed 2 nights and were impressed with this park. The only thing that kept it from being a 10 was the lack of shade. But the trees are growing! We saw roadrunners, rabbits, and quail.
