This is a great park with miles of hiking, equestrian and mountain biking trails. I even hesitate to rave for fear it will become too popular. The sites are huge and well spaced and the whole park is very clean and well kept. The place is really quiet at night. The only drawback is it's distance from many amenities. Tampa is almost an hour away, drive time. Though there are local grocery stores close by. Sewer would be nice as would Wi-Fi, but then it wouldn't be much of a Florida State Park. Great place!
This park is backed up to I-95. Lots of road noise all the time. It is an older park, with large sites. The staff is very nice. It is well kept and neat outside. People keep to themselves and there are no social amenities. There are no trails or places to walk here, though there is a small unfenced grassy area that is used as a dog potty. Our main problem was the Wi-Fi, or lack of it. Before I booked a site I specifically asked them if they had Wi-Fi, and if it worked, as we need it for our jobs. The said yes. That is not true. They use Wi-Fi RV, a service that costs the user $4.95 for 24 hrs. It was TOTALLY inadequate and continually dropped us. There were 2 listed connections, but only one worked. It was so frustrating we contemplated leaving but with the high season in Florida and it being late in the day, we didn't want to deal with the hassle. I will not go back to this park, or use Wi-Fi RV!!!!
This place is so over priced it's ridiculous! Granted it is close and convenient to Key West, but this is the only positive thing I can say. The sites are so close, we had to walk sideways between our parked car and our rig. The adjoining campers had to move 3 cars so we'd have enough room to maneuver into the site. It took 3 people to watch for all the impediments, while my husband parked. He's no rooky: he's been RV'ing since he was a child. The roads are very narrow. As posted earlier, it's noisy with jets from the nearby commercial airport and AFB planes flying overhead. The snowbirds are friendly. Lots of activities for the older crowd. The Wi-Fi works but drops service frequently. There are no trails or hiking areas close by. The neighborhood is warehouse chic. The only reason we stayed on was because we dreaded the extraction process of pulling out!
This is a small semi-urban RV park, run by the Lafayette parish. It's an excellent place to use as a central base for exploring the Cajun country. It was quiet while we stayed there on a long weekend. The management was helpful and friendly. Our satellite and Verizon aircard worked fine. Note that there are no sewer hookups. There is a network of nature trails, and the RV park is adjacent to a city park with lots of grass and sports fields for walking. A great little park!
New park but in need of trees, shrubs and grass. Small dirt/mud areas at each site, not seeded with grass, just a few weeds. Very small, almost unusable concrete slabs for patio area. Owners should extend the slabs and forget the tiny patch of dirt/mud. No wi-fi, but owner suggested we log on to one of the neighbor's unsecured wi-fi networks!!!! We used our Verizon air card instead. Didn't try the cable. Right next to the freeway, so there was road noise, but not intolerable, though we were in the back. Good park for visiting the area's museums and points of interest. No hiking/walking trails. Located in rundown rural neighborhood.
Nice park with large spaces, tables and covered BBQ's at the sites. On this trip there were a lot of winter Texans, but the place was not full. The weather was unseasonably cold and wet so it was quiet and pretty empty during our stay. The facilities were immaculate. There is a small camp store at the entrance and the workers were very helpful with directions, etc. It's close to the town of Sattler for groceries. (2.5 miles) This park looks like it would be a good place to spend some time in the spring and fall. During the summer it gets pretty crazy with all the "toobers" going down the river. We would use this RV park again.
This is a great place to camp and enjoy the sun, wind and sea right on the beach. We camped here in a motorhome, so dry camping wasn't a problem. There was a voucher to dump at McGrath state park if needed. This is a very basic campsite on a 2 lane beach road with parking off pavement in the sand/dirt. The beach is on the end of the site and rocky, but full of birds and surfers. Excellent! We will camp here again.
Camped here 2 nights over the Thanksgiving holiday. The place was packed but everyone was in the party spirit and very nice. Very family oriented, good security and service. The place is kept in excellent order and very clean. Lots of play areas for kids with a state park right next door. Beach access, too. We will stay here again.
Surprisingly nice and spacious park in very urban setting. Close to grocery stores etc, though with freeway and lots of traffic we decided to stay put. Campsites are large and well spaced with lots of large areas of thin grass and large pines, sycamores and other shade trees. Situated along a riverbed/wash and riparian area. There is riverside walking and bike trail. If staying here ask for a riverside site or one away from the freeway, as noise is non-stop, even at night. There is no cable TV or Wi-Fi. Those are 2 misses that they should work on fixing. Otherwise, a pleasant stay.
Located along the river in Carmel Valley over a VERY narrow single lane bridge. Very tight spaces, crammed together and separated by 6ft hedges. Our site was so small we barely had room for our toad (durango suv) Had to park it very close to RV even to get it into the site. Only able to open the car door on one side. Crazy tight!!! Place was clean and very quiet. Only saving grace was close proximity to Carmel. We won't camp here again.
This is a beautiful setting for a southern Calif. ocean side park. It's large but sites we saw are spaced nicely apart. The park was almost empty, which surprised us at this time of year. We were unable to find pull throughs and hookups, as stated at the Calif. State Park website. We dry camped. There were no rangers in attendance and users had to register and deposit the fees self-serve. Clean and handy. We will stay here again.
We've camped all over the country for 30 years and this is by far the best of it's type. I second all the above posts. This place is great!!! The location is perfect, with water views in almost every site. Immaculate. ATV's are not allowed, so no noise, oil or rowdy types driving through at all hours. Lots to see and do close by. A keeper! We will definitely return.
Nice wooded, older campground with lots of sites. Wi-Fi isn't available at every site, with no discount rate given. We asked up front. The sites are tight, graveled and fairly level. Those with larger RV's might find them too small. We acquired one of the larger sites in the back as per a previous post's recommendation. The site had not been cleaned, was covered in rotting leaves, and one of us promptly stepped in dog droppings. We went ahead and set up the rig completely. Then, we found the TV cable didn't work. We called the office and they said, "Oh yeah, it doesn't work out there." That's it, no offers of discounts in the fees or moving us to another site. We mentioned that they should have informed us at registration and we wouldn't have gone to all the trouble of setting up, etc. We packed up, got our money back and moved on down the road. We will never stay her again. The workers could use a little public relations work. They should tell customers what is and isn't available at registration.
Very new campground, basically a gravel parking lot. Central shower and bathrooms. Surrounded on 2 sides by levees and rivers where a dock and fishing is available. No trees. This site has no sewer hookups because of local restrictions. We were told they have applied to the city, but are having trouble getting permits because of the close proximity to the rivers. Staff very friendly and helpful. We chose this site because it was far enough away from the coast to be out of the fog and wind. We day-tripped to Garibaldi, Tillamook and other coastal towns, for fishing and crabbing. Good choice for our use. Might be rated as a "fisherman's campsite."
Huge park with flat, asphalt sites, bordered by small patches of lush green grass. Extra water spigot came in handy for watering dog bowls. We stayed there 5 days. Great proximity to Portland across the bridge, via I-5., though northbound rush hour traffic can be a bear. Laundry room clean and well lit all in working order. Staff very knowledgeable about local places of interest including printed material and advice. Didn't find the plane noise to be a problem as in previous posts. It decreased significantly at night. Earplugs worked for me. We will stay here again on our next visit to Portland.
A small park, close to Eugene which was easily accessible via I-5. Sites were spacious and very clean. Great landscaping and large mature trees in a park-like setting. Service staff friendly, courteous and very helpful. We had only one complaint. At various times throughout our stay we noted a distinct vegetative, septic odor eminating from a few campsites in the park. It seemed to be in a specific area in the center of the campground. There seems to be a sewage distribution network that either is leaking, or needs venting repair. It was quite sulfourous at times. We would stay at this park again, but would request a campsite away from this area.
