Nicely maintained older park. Mainly winter residents. The staff was very nice and accommodating. Pool very nice. WiFi reception good. They have about a dozen or so transient sites near the front on the park. Good location, but close to local attractions. We would stay again.

This is an older part, but is clean. Wi-Fi was very good for us. We had a 50 amp back in. Lots of trees. TV only has about 15 stations. Gravel roads and sites. Owner was very nice and helpful. I believe there are a lot of snowbirds here. It is fairly close to town. Shopping and dinning is very close. Rate reflects the Good Sam price.

Rate is PassPort America. Built around several old crayfish ponds converted into fishing lakes. Nice lady runs it. Sites level and a good campground. A little hard to find, but they have good signage. They also own a market that serves a wonderful lunch a few miles away. The town is about 5 minutes away. We ended up staying an extra day. The Wi-Fi would not connect. Nobody around us could connect either. They need a pro to come in and fix it. Good signal, but no connect. Could be as easy as a reboot. It was clean and the fishing was free. We would return if in the area.

Modern park. Mainly folks who live here. Some motorcycle noise. Concrete sites, but some have large drop offs. Be careful. Lots of geese and ducks wandering around which was nice. About 10 minutes to the "strip" at Biloxi. Sites a little tight. WiFi was good. Rate is Passport America.

Very clean and park. All of the Alabama state parks have WiFi and it was pretty fast. 15 minutes from down town Mobile. We intended to overnight here and ended up staying 3 days. Right on the water. Easy in easy out. Paved sites. No TV, but not a problem for us. Bath house and laundry clean and modern. Rate reflects the senior discount. Great restaurants (Felix Fish Camp) minutes away. Lunch at these places is the same food at half the price. We would definitely return. Down town Mobile has a free shuttle to see all of the historic spots. You can get on and get off all for free.

Very nice resort type campground. Good paved roads with grass campsites. On a lake. Lots of activities. Modern in every way. Individual bathrooms with showers which I like. Saw some kids, but mainly older crowd. It was at the end of snowbird season and before the summer season. About 5 miles from town. WiFi was quick and free. They had a nice club house and outdoor places for activities. We used it as a stopover, but many folks are using it as a week's vacation spot. They appear to have many rallies. We would definitely go back if in the area.

Great camp ground. We saw about 30 deer and even had 5 in our campsite in the morning. Very good for a state park. My rate is the senior rate which is half price. The sites are all sand, but firmly packed and we had no trouble. The interior road are tight, but we saw several tag axle coaches going through. The springs are about 1/4 mile away. We saw numerous manatee there. This is a great spot for kids as well as us older folks. Good places to eat in Chiefland which is about 10 minutes away.

Very nice park. Sites are pretty tight, but very well done and concrete. Nice pool and rec room. Beach is a short walk across the street. Good places to eat nearby. Mainly snowbirds in the winter. Seem to have a lot of activities. A little hard getting into and out of our site, but we managed.

We have stayed here several times before as it is 4 hours away from our home. This time we were coming from the other direction and wanted to tour Valdosta. It is clean and pretty. Wi-Fi was great. The park was nearly empty. Limited TV channels. We will be back.

A very nice small, quiet park. We had a water front site. Level sites with a lot of distance between them. We went to the Okefenokee Swamp Park for the day and it was great. The park is a little confusing to find as you can get to it off 177 from the East or West end. We will be back.

We were at this camp during the annual Pirates Festival and rates were very high. The campground is city owned and well maintained. The sites are pretty jammed in and the side roads are narrow, but we did well. Great little town. See Fort Pulaski and get breakfast at the famous Breakfast Club. The Wi-Fi was very under sized for this park. It worked well at times, but was so slow to be nearly unusable during peak times. Reception was OK. We expected a lot of noise with the Festival going on, but it didn't happen. It is about 20 miles from Savannah and most of the folks are weekenders from there.

We have stayed here several times over the last decade and it continues to be a great park. Not a lot of frills like phone and WiFi, but it has a great stream that winds it way through the camp sites and you can hear it gurgling as you sleep. Very shaded. Satellite radio wouldn't work. It is for the nature lover and a great, relaxing park if this is what you want. If you want hi-tec, it isn't the place. It was built by the CCC during the depression. We will be here again when in the area. This is one of the few times I have ever given a 10 points.

We stayed for 6 nights because we had family in the area. Rate reflects a combination of weekday Passport America and weekend regular rate. Nice gravel area. Right on a creek with boat rentals, tubing, etc. Clean and quite. We had stayed her several years ago and will be back.

Very friendly private park. Owners extremely helpful. Concrete level sites. Wi-Fi good. 50 amp service. Close to St. Mary's. We went to the Cumberland Island National Seashore and it was a great day. Take the van tour. Sites here are shaded. Very quiet and comfortable. We went to a neat pot luck supper held every Sunday night. Great conversations. We will be back as there is a whole lot to see in the area.

Nice old Florida campground. We had a 30 amp site. It was off season and the campground was no where near full. WiFi charged by the day, so we didn't utilize it. Lots of great historic sites nearby and super restaurants. Great farmers market downtown on the weekends. We will return. There was several spots on the roads with low hanging limbs.

I have reviewed this park several times before, but am again. No question it is a great park. Several improvements have been made. The electrical systems have been improved in many sites. One of my previous complaints has been removed. Since 9/11, the Navy base had been doing continuous helicopter flights around the adjacent Navy base as part of the security and the did make some noise (at several thousand feet). That is gone now. The area was hit a week before by tropical storm Bryl the week before, but things were generally cleaned up in the campground. There are many nature trails and some had limbs down.

We stayed in this park several years ago and had a successful time. It has a great location close to the Amish area. It has no bathrooms or showers or any amenities. We had to move sites to remain here due to a full Friday night. We got and paid for a 50 amp site as it was hot and we could use both AC’s. When we got to our new site, it had a shared pedestal with another site, 1 site was 30 amp, 1 site was 50 amp. We been promised and paid for the 50 amp site. It was also indicated on the map that our site was 50 amp and the site next door was 30 amp. The pedestal was clearly marked. The people in the 30 amp site were plugged into our 50 amp plug and not their own clearly marked plug. We went to the office and informed them. The lady (?) said we couldn’t have a 50 amp system in our RV as no RV’s under 35 feet had 50 amp systems (DUH). They also said that it was standard practice for the first one at the site to get their choice of hookups even if they were labeled per site. My wife told them to get an adapter and change the other folks out. They called the other guy and he admitted his switching over and agreed to be switched back to his 30 amp plug. The lady (?) gave me an adapter they had and told me to switch it. The adapter was a 30 amp to 50 amp and wouldn’t work. I could not make her understand the difference. She called another employee (Mr. Personality) and he straightened her out on the adapter. I asked him to change it as I didn’t want to change somebody else’s rig. He was nasty and said we should have just let first come first serve as that was standard in campgrounds. I pointed out my 48 state Brag Map and said I had camped all over and you got what you paid for. He said. “That don’t get you no special privilege here.” He did change it and we had no problems. I did find out later that he was not just another employee, but the owner. Strange idea of customer service. Wi-Fi worked well. Berlin, OH is a wonderful place to RV and we will be back, but not staying here. A new campground is going up several miles West of Berlin. We will be staying there.

Very nice, modern campground. Little tight around entrance. Ice cream social. Built around a private lake. One part next to expressway. Wi-Fi had to be purchased and was unfriendly to FireFox. No hot water in laundry, but probably a temporary situation. Very friendly, efficient folks. We would return.

It is rare that we give a campground a poor grade, this is an exception. It is an older campground that is setup for the camper of 30 years ago. My number one complaint was that we stopped here because they had Wi-Fi and questioned them before staying. They basically lied about it. The service was very poor and no reception was at the site. I have a Radio Wave Omni directional antenna and was able to hook on marginally. I suspect they have a home system with a small router on their own TV. He wanted us this time and didn’t care about what we thought. After all we were just passing through. Now we have RP Park Reviews. The entrance has a hairpin turn that is extremely steep. It jostled loose my bedroom light fixture it was so steep and the coach was jostling around so much. Class A’s (33 foot) will have a hard time. The sites are very short and I broke the plastic out of one of my upper running lights on a tree as I parked. The shower house is metal and not cleanable. We have stayed in at least 200 campgrounds since I have seen the quarter showers, I refuse to strand there and feed quarters into a shower. Seems like this is the owner telling his customers you are just a source of money. There are other ways to stop people from leaving them on. The water pressure from the hookup was very low. Two sites share a faucet and I had to use two 25 foot hoses to connect up to water. Rather than using money to upgrade the park, the owner has a brand new $10,000 quad 4 wheeler. He woke us up driving it around about 7 PM. Nice toy. The dump station is right on an uphill slope on the only way out of the park which blocks anybody else from leaving. There was no laundry. Trees need to be trimmed. The area itself is very nice and we had a great time. Quaint little fishing village and great restaurants.

This park is owned by the city. It is a very good one for being city owned. They have two $49 Wi-Fi routers sitting on counters and reception is bad all over the camp. I have a USB omnidirectional antenna, so I was OK, but my neighbors were unable to use it, the speed was so slow. The views here are wonderful. You look out over a bluff to Lake Superior. There is a rocky beach. We drove up about 85 miles to Grand Mariha's and saw all of the listed sights along the way. We stayed 2 nights, there was so much to do.

Very nice, well kept campground. Very wide sites, 50 amp, pull throughs. Obviously laid out by somebody who knew camping. I believe it is part of the famous Al's Oasis complex of stores and restaurants which is nearby. We went out to the Indian museum and the Indian trail loop and were several hours past checkout. We called and they were very nice about it. We would stay again.

The WiFi did not work. They said it was because we had Windows Seven. This is a common browser they should upgrade to handle it or not advertise that they have WiFi. It was the reason we stopped. TV channels were very basic. Office smelled like cats and one jumped right on me as we talked to owner. Nice little town. Easy in Easy out gas station across the street. Over priced for what we received.

This is a state of the art campground designed by somebody who camps. Very well laid out. It was way out of our price range, but we averaged it out with Wal-Mart on the way out. The one screwy thing was the WiFi. It was through Tennengo and you were issued two, 2 hour coupons that had to be used 10 hours apart. Very strange, because the park was only about 20% full due to early season and snow. The WiFi was either slow or moderate depending on the time. I used my tethered Android and set up the 2 hour bits for my photo backup.

Great family campground. Passport America rate. Very neat small town. Great restaurant. No WiFi, owners very friendly. They were having water problems as rest of state. Level sites, full hookups. Between train and HWY 90, but not a problem. Very interesting countryside as big sheep raining area. Owners have gas station and convenience store across street.

Nice family campground. Looks like it had been a KOA at one time. We saw at least 25 deer. Every time we turned around there were deer. Sites were a little small, but no trouble getting our slides out. The town itself is very interesting with lots of history and a great place to eat. (Occidental Hotel). We would go back. The other parks in town are just gravel lots. This place is very unique with the deer.

We did Passport America here for one night. Picked it because it had WiFi, but WiFi wouldn't work and would barely work with my antenna. The owner said it was working good in the house. Sites level. Pull throughs. Close to road. We had 30 amp, but 50 was available. All in all an average campground. Probably stays full in season and sparse out of season.

People very nice and helpful. Sites are close together. Have 50 amp and great WiFi. Good Sam Discount. Close to the national park. Well maintained for an older park. I would say it was the best in town if you wanted hookups which are unavailable in the park. The National Park itself is spectacular, both the South and the North. If you only have time for one of them, chose the South Unit.

Very good state park. The sites are set up a little strange in they have 2 sites in a C formation and looks like lots of folks think it is a one site pull through. Great historical info within the park. We decided to stay a second day.

This is a great campground with great facilities. Washer and dry cheap. It is a big field, but has 50 amp service. We were in the off season and very few folks there. The Amana Colonies were fantastic and took a full two day to see. Great German food and very friendly people.

This was our second trip here. It is pretty remote, but we like that. They have a great Seminole Museum as well as air boat and swamp buggy rides. We talked to the new manger who is a Seminole and seemed to be very knowledgeable and interested in improving the park. They are taking one section and enlarging the slabs, adding landscaping, and generally improving things. They are looking to make the park into a 3 tiered system and are doing a lot of improving. We will be returning in several years to see how they are doing. I did tell him about the discount clubs as Passport America and Camp Club America. Like most Florida campgrounds, they have a slow summer season. All In all, it was a very nice park.

I read the mixed reviews, but came anyway due to location. I found the truth to be somewhere between the two reviews. We got the Camp Club America half price rate. This certainly isn’t a resort, but appears to be on the upswing. The bathrooms were less than average and the showers had the water saver buttons that cut off every minute or so to save water. It also turned cold for a few seconds. I have only found this in about 1 or so percent of the campgrounds we have stayed at. Our TV connection had 4 connections and had to be figured out. Worked OK then. WiFi was virtually nonexistent. So slow to be almost useless. I was able to get on using a linksys for my very slow experience, and then the next day discovered a “campground” network when trying to hook up. It was even slower. I wonder why campground owners tell campers things they know not to be true. Must be to get the business once and forget repeat business. The internet has changed that narrative.

Very nice with huge sites and manicured grounds. Nice bathrooms and showers. WiFi did not work for us. We were about 15 minutes from downtown Charleston. The staff was very friendly. They do seem have a lot of speed bumps, but just go slow. We had a very shady site, but they did have sites with no trees for the satellite folks. Sites are sand or gravel. They seem to have a lot of activities, but we were too busy to partake. We would go back again.

This is better than a typical KOA. Lots of amenities and a high price. We normally don't stay at parks like this, but the location dictated it. We really didn't get to use the amenities, but most folks do and they other campers seemed to be enjoying things very much. WiFi is OK in the off hours, but during the high volume times, it is so slow to be unusable. It was a little noisy with the kids and the pool, but it wasn't late and only a curmudgeon could be offended. No road roise.

We stayed here for several nights to have a brake problem fixed on our coach. It was very nice and very clean. Bathrooms were spotless. Everything looked new and was very well kept. They had concrete pads. The WiFi worked in the building, but not at our site which was one of the closest to the building. They also have a rally campground which is huge. The service department is top flight also.

This park has been rebuilt since the review about the dirt sites. Nice concrete sites, 50 amp, water and sewage. We had no cable TV, which wasn’t a problem for us. They accept Passport America, so our rate was only $15, a great bargain. WiFi is very spotty. If this is important to you, pick a site close to the bathrooms where the router is located. I was at the other end and had to ride my truck down there to get connected. It is pretty close to the expressway, so noise might be a problem for some. Every few minutes, a trucker would use his jake brake and you could hear it. We had the AC on and it was fine. The park is right on the river. There are only 25 sites. The city park up river has a bike path jogging track that runs through the middle of the road in the park, but this wasn’t a problem for us. (I like watching those tight shorts). The park is very close to town and you can use surface streets to get to the Biltmore House and the various local attractions. The Blue Ridge Parkway entrance is about 10 minutes away also. The bathrooms were below average in my opinion. It was a good value at the PA rate, but not at the $30 rate.

We stayed here about 5 years ago. Most of the sites are permanent locals who keep TT’s or Fivers on site for weekend and seasonal use. Bath rooms were very clean. Sites were gravel. Folks were friendly. Our site was a little tight getting in and out, but no real problems. Lots of great restaurants add things to do in area. We stayed 3 days and would use it again. Vogel state park is frequently full during the summer months.

We stayed at this park several years ago and have stayed at the nearby Wal-Mart several times. We got the half price Camp Club America rate. It is a nice campground with all of the facilities. It is about 2 minutes from the expressway, but we heard no truck noise. Outside temperature was near 100 degrees and we would have spent about the same amount in fuel if we boondocked and ran the generator. The people before and after us both paid the $35.00 rate and CCA was nice. I don't see why everybody doesn't use them and PPA. Perry is about 300 miles from our home and this works out as a great stop for us. We will be back.

This is a nice little campground. Our price was with the Passport America 50% discount card (I love them.) Sites a little tight, but no real problem. A lot of activities here. They had music and a dinner the one night we were here. Lots of seasonal people, but the campground is upscale. About 1 1/2 miles from Expressway. Quiet at night and all in all a great place to stopover. We would return.

This is now an Elite campground and I believe it to e overpriced. We booked without seeing it over labor day as we thought we needed to book in advance. Campground was about 20% booked. Lots of kids and tent campers. They stated free Wi-Fi over the phone. It was Nomad with a prepaid coupon. It was free, but the rangers didn’t know what to do. I finally figured it out. A handout would have been great, but there was none. Just a slip with the coupon number. Bathrooms were OK and pool was nice (filled with loud kids. They had a large field with one pedestal (30 amp) for 4 sites with a similar setup for water (four on one). First time I ever used my whole electrical cord. The shaded spots are much nicer, but were taken by seasonal types. I think next time, I would go further up the delta as that is where all of the activity is anyway. Might as well be up there. We did not have sewer at site.

This is an older park that is very popular. They have fishing and many boat slips. It is right on the St. Mary's River and all of the ships locking through come right by: very interesting. It only had 30 amp service. A lot of the campers are repeaters. We talked to one lady who had been coming for over 30 years. I fished for salmon which I always wanted to do. I didn't catch any but saw others catching them right off the dock. It is about 5 minutes from the bridge over to Canada. We took the tour train in Canada and it was great. We were to stay 2 days and extended it to 3 days. The management does tend to have a lot of little signs around, but I expect it is from the mistakes by campers. All in all we would go back. Don't miss the eatery down the street called Antlers.

This is a famous campground and everybody should stay here at least once. We did. We had a great waterfront site with a view of the bridge. The sites were very tight for slides as there were hedges. I am sure it was designed prior to slides and 50 amp service. The check lady was a little abrupt bordering on rude, but that can happen anywhere. We were there as the season was winding down and there was not a lot of activity. There are no on site sewers. Signage leading out was poor and we saw several motorhomes wandering around looking to leave. Coming back at night, it was easy to get lost as it is huge. I would spend the extra $5 to get lakefront. All in all it was a good experience.

This is a well kept park. We stayed in the "cheap" seats out in the back. We had been boondocking for 6 days with spotty WiFi service here and there and I expressly asked for good internet access and was told we would have it. The WiFi was very poor and if I had not have had my HiGain anettna, we would not have had any at all. I don't think the owners realize that this is important to those of us who RV for long periods of time. The city itself is very nice and quaint and we would probably go back to this park, but get into the wooded area.

This campground does not appear to have a website. Might be due to the Mennonite ownership. They had a 3 day special ($70) and though intending to stay on 2 days we ended up staying 2 specials or 6 days. No trees, but a wonderful location close to all of the local Amish sites that we love. Nice laundry. There was no showers or rest room which might turn off some, but this isn’t a problem for us as we use the shower in the coach. Very friendly people, close to a great Amish market with lots of fresh meats, cheeses and baked good. This is just a wonderful area of the US and we will be back. WiFi service was free and very fast.

A little tight in a class A, but nice and clean. The owners are Mennonite and keep the place in excellent condition. On Friday and Saturday, an Amish couple comes up in a buggy and sells homemade baked goods. 30 Amp power and no on site sewer, but not a problem for us. Super great area and you are near all of the Amish sightseeing areas. Great food in the area and wonderful scenery.

This is an excellent campground in a great location. Several problems prevented its getting a higher rating. Wi-Fi was extremely expensive. $4.95 for 2 hours. $10 for 1 day. $25 for a week and $50 for a month. This was highway robbery to me. There were also about a hundred gnats in the shower. It is wooded and very well maintained. Nice pool and restrooms. No on-site sewer hookups. Family campground.

This campground probably used to be very nice years ago. It is rundown, but an acceptable overnight stop. Restrooms and showers were not close to clean. Sites were in a non wooded parking lot.

It is a nice park in a beautiful area. It is about a mile from the expressway. Everything clean and the people are nice. We didn’t use the pool, but it looked tempting. It is wooded and shady. There are only about 10 TV stations on the cable, but FNN was one, so I was happy. The WiFi was free, but the slowest I had ever seen at a park. It took about 3 minutes to load a page. Lady checking us in had trouble with the credit card due to computer being slow. I told my wife, they must have been using a 286 for their server. At 6:15 AM in the morning it ran much faster, but was unusable after 7:30 AM. Easy In and Easy out. It is more expensive that we normally do, but we needed to stop.

Easy in easy out. We used Passport America for half price rate. They also do Camp America. We just spent the night. Very hot, so the 50 Amp was nice. Sites gravel and sand, but fairly level. Some old permanent folks. Close to dining and stuff. Wi-Fi was free and they had 4 zones, but it was very slow during busy times and kept kicking me off. I got up at 6 AM to do my banking and surfing and by 7:30 AM it was very slow and kicking me off again. We would go back with the discounted rate

We have stayed at this park about 5 times. I am reviewing again as it has changed hands and changed names. We have noticed some changes to the park with the new owners, but pretty minor. The staff was very nice. We got tickets for a free lunch on Sat July 4th put on by the staff (mainly workampers) and a free ice cream from a camper/vendor onsite. The campground itself is just the same with very large wooded sites with full hookups. They are now trying to sell the sites ($39,900) and I suspect with the economy like it is, they won’t sell too many. About 150 of the 400 sites were taken on this Holiday weekend. They have full hookups and all the amenities including a huge pool and hot tub. We live about 90 minutes away and awe will continue to come back. Great spots to visit close by.

We utilized Passport America, so we got the half price rate. They have a lot of long term units, but most of the front area was in and out people like us. We were going to stay 4 days, but left after 3 due to huge rainstorm which of course was not their fault. We would stay there again. The WiFi was through Tenengo and was $4.95/day which was too much for me. The stated WiFi available, so it was not deceptive as with some campgrounds. There was a McDonald’s about a quarter a mile way with free WiFi, but I could not pick it up even with my antenna. Lazy Days RV is only one exit away with their free WiFi. Pool was nice. Staff was very helpful. We went to about 5museums and were not at the park during the day. The park is far enough from I-4 so that there is no road noise. We had spent one night boon docking at Camping World and the road noise was brutal.

This is a Passport America campground and our stated rate reflects that. Although the campground has 180 sites, only about 10 are for short term rentals. Many of the sites have broken facilities. We had to have water/sewer from one site and electrical from another. Many of the permanent sites are pretty ratty looking. It is on a large lake, but the permanent people have this locked up. Pool and rec room are nice. WiFi (free) was very weak, but I was able to use it as I had an antenna. I got no service without it. There were no showers that we could find. There was a dog barking and loud talking and music well into the night. We go this way on a regular basis, but will not be stopping here again.

This campground is actually about 25 miles South of Everglades city, which is the closest town. 30 sites around a great lake. Electric (50 amp) is the only service provided. Water and dump available by restrooms. Golden Age price is $10. Sites level on concrete pads. Very nice and well maintained for what it is. Good location for seeing the sites in the area. We will be back. Everglades City has a wonderful historical museum that should not be missed.

This park isn’t in Clewiston, but quite a bit South of there on the Seminole Indian reservation. It is a well run and maintained park with clean restrooms, nice pool, and hot tub. The road in is a little narrow, but we had no problems. The Billie Safari was very nice and we ended up spending most of the day there. They have air boat and swamp buggy tours as well as many, many native animals and Seminole cultural exhibits. The next day we went to the Seminole Indian museum which was just fabulous and very informative. The Seminoles have done a remarkable job of turning what was thought to be worthless land into a huge success for their tribe. They are very family oriented and stress cultural education for their children. We will certainly be back at this wonderful campground.

We had seen the poor review, but didn’t connect on it mentally until after we had arrived. It was a Passport America campground and we felt like it was a good value. It is a very old campground and the town has grown up around it. Sites are small as that’s how they were back in the old days. Facilities were nice and well maintained. They appear to use work campers which usually makes for a friendly staff. The driving lanes were a little tight, but we went slow and had no trouble in our 33 ft motor home with toad uncoupled. Staff took us to our site and helped us back in. Our site was about 30 feet wide and had enough room in the front to park the toad sideways as we normally do. It was too cold for the pool, but it was nice. It is just a few miles to I-95 or the Florida turnpike. About half of the park were French Canadians which is what you will find in the winter in South Florida. Nothing specific about this park. We found the people to be friendly. When we went to an attraction in the area, we found there were very few English speakers around. This is a reflection on the dollar as compared to other currencies, not this park. One negative I did have was that the ad said WiFi available which should have been a dead give away that it was not free. I check with my had held WiFi detector and saw it was an open network. When logging on, I discovered that only the welcome page was open and you had to pay for WiFi. I did as we hadn’t had it in a while, and I needed to do some computer work. I was getting the site of half price, so it wasn’t too bad. I did note that the campground has two sides and the person who had the horrible review may have been on the other side.

Ad said Wi-Fi available on website which meant, you had to pay extra for it. Cable TV was also extra. We used Campground America so it was half price. Our site had a very narrow entrance and we ended up scratching our basement door. Be careful. Lots of long termers and seasonal and only a few nightly. Facilities were average. Staff was work campers and very nice. Nice book exchange. All and all an average campground and Campground America made it a good value which it wouldn’t have been at regular price. Next trip, I will try another campground.

I have stayed at this park before and rated it highly. It is a wonderful park, but this time, we made a mistake in going there over President’s day weekend, and it was full of kids. We had a site directly across from the restroom and there was a slope in the pavement that was in constant use by skate boarders. We were usually out sightseeing during the day, but they went on well past the 10PM quiet hour. Wonder where the parents were. We didn’t say anything, but will certainly not get anywhere near the bathroom in future stays. We were in site 196, and probably at least 8 other nearby sites would have been bothered by the noise. Go here, but be careful.

We stayed one night on the way home. Campground is nice with fairly large level sites. Full hookups (without TV). 50 amp service. There is boating activity available as well as lots of hiking. Lots of planned activities. We took the 7 mile trip to the old ferry that goes across the St. John River. Interesting trip to the ferry. The town is pretty run down with mainly trailers and appears to be suffering from the economy. Appears to be many snowbirds there, but I thought this wasn’t allowed in a National campground.

This is truly a wonderfully located campground. It is a state park and doesn’t have the frills of a commercial operation, but the sites are large and the facilities are very nice. We found the bathrooms to be clean. There is a lot of day use activity and no wonder why as this is a very interesting place for an unusual geological place. The video in the visitor’s center records the area from beginning to end and is very informative. You can walk right out onto the prairie. Bison, Spanish horses, original cracker cattle roam on the prairie, but we did not see any. We did see three deer during our stay. We ended up staying a third day to go see a wonderful Museum of Natural History at the U of F (free by the way). We will definitely be back at this wonderful park. You can reserve through ReserveAmerica.

We stayed here for 1 nights and had a great time. They an airboat cruise for $10 that was well worth it. We love to photograph wild life and we saw over 20 deer, about 8 wild hogs, 7 turkeys, numerous alligators, many, many specious of birds and lots more. I believe we took more photos here than any other place we have camped. The camp is a typical Florida state park. Nice restrooms, lots to do like films, boat rides, trams, and lots of educational stuff. The sites were fairly spacious. There is lots of sand. It rained while we were there. The camp is around 10 miles from Sarasota and it’s numerous attractions. We have visited the Amish is several locations around the US and heard in Intercourse, PA about the Amish vacation area in Sarasota and looked it up. There is a very nice Amish Restaurant called Yoder’s that has been there since 1972. It is real Amish, not the retail type as one up the street. We ended up eating lunch there 3 days and had enough left over for dinner both nights. The cell phone service is very spotty at the campground. All in all, it was a great campground and location.

This park has been well documented and is an exceptional county park. Beautiful scenery with site a good distance apart. We had a waterfront site. Bathrooms were nice, large, and clean. The Fort is extremely interesting and also free. Lots of beaches and rental equipment. There is a large segment of day trippers, but they are not permitted in the camping area. We got lots of photos. The city of St. Pete Beach is about 10 minutes away. There are two toll roads between the cities and the campground totaling only 85 cents. The Don Cesar, a large old hotel right on the beach with loads of history. There are several “local” inexpensive seafood restaurants in the area also. We would have stayed longer, but the weekend which was full shut us out as they were full. The park is easy to get too. The sites are a little hard to navigate as there are lot of trees. I’d much rather have the trees. We had to jog once on the way in. All in all it was a great experience.

This is an old Florida type campground and institution in the area. Lots of mature trees in the area and 3 lakes for fishing. Very large and nice pool and hot tub. Located in South Fort Myers close to Estero. Many “Snowbird” permanent sites, but the travelers sites are located close to the office and to the bath houses. There is a large activities room with planned events and a pool table and ping pong and a nice exercise room. Restaurants, parks and shopping nearby. All in all it is a very nice park. We ended up staying 4 nights. We used Camp Cub America a 50% discount club and the above price reflects that. The park is located about 5 minutes from exit 123 I-75. We will be staying again.

This is a beautiful park. We saw deer on 4 occasions on a 1 night stay. The springs are wonderful and great swimming. They say it’s 72 degrees year around, but I had to beak the ice in August. Wonderful boardwalk and nature trails. Bathrooms were dirty, but maybe I got there at the wrong time. Sites were a little tight. 30 AMP only. Staff was very friendly. No Wi-Fi or even cell service. Mosquitoes were large and numerous.

The campground itself was nice. We camped there under the Passport America half price discount program, The park belongs to the system and advertises with the system and you would think that they would like to see campers come, especially during the slow season when the park was about 80 % empty. The staff was unwelcoming and we were made to feel like second class citizens. We use Passport America a lot and rarely see this happen. Passport America campers were relegated to the “cheap seats” in the back of the park, behind the bathhouses and pool. We paid $22 which was full price at many campgrounds and were limited to one night. We would have stayed two if we had felt welcome. I just thought the attitude was a little strange. We managed to enjoy ourselves and the sites were large and comfortable. There is a nice waterfront with docks, rental boats and such. There were also many little extras where you could tell the owners had tried to make it a great park. Need to work on employees next.

This campground was at one time a wonderful place I am sure. It is a little on the down side now. We were there in the absolute slow season for sure. Mainly long term campers. Staff was very nice, Wonderful indoor pool and nice lodge for events. The actual springs nice, but we didn’t swim as there were a lot of town kids there. There is a mile unpaved road leading to the park. We didn’t have any trouble on the road though. No cell service, no Wi-Fi, Overpriced for what you get.

Our site ws right on the water with our on private dock. Lots of wildlife. The drive into Cedar key and it's delights is about 2 minutes. Rate reflects Passport America, which unfortunately is good for 1 night only. We will definitely be back.

We stayed here overnight coming back from a 3 month trip with a lot of boondocking. It was far enough from the Expressway to stop the noise. WiFi was free and strong but kept cutting out. Last stop before going home so we back-flushed a long while. Bath and showers nice. Not much at exit, but one exit north has lots of stuff. If you use Next Exit book, there is a mistake in the order of exits so be careful. We would stay again.

It got down to 14 degrees overnight. Just a big gravel parking lot, but sites wide and long. 50 AMP. The town itself was very interesting. It is an easy in easy out campground. The showers were off the office and had restricted hours which might bother some people.

Very nice park and friendly staff. Rest rooms clean. Have a timer on the bathroom lights the same as many parks, but it was on when I went in and went off at a bad time, but I survived. Close to shopping and within walking distance of a great sandwich shop/bakery. Free Wi-Fi with good speed. Unfortunately had a gift shop that my wife spent $20 in, but that is life I guess. Seems like the staff are the owners which usually means better service. Gave us some good tourist info for Salt Lake City.

We overnighted in this park and found it to be very nice and well run. The laundry room was the nicest we had ever seen and the prices were cheap. They had TV to watch in comfortable chairs when waiting for it. The landscaping (grass) looked like a golf course. Wi-Fi was free and came in very fast. There is a private airport close by and we did here a plane taking off, but we were well up and about by then. Manager was friendly. We were there i the off season. Price reflects the Pass Port America half price rate which we love. It is about a 1/2 mile from I-84 and easy in easy out.

We were here before the season started and it was not crowded at all as I am sure it would be during the season. Honored the Passport America half price rate. This park is right on a salmon fishing river. Our coach was 15 feet from the river. Very beautiful and serene.Seems to be well run. Entrance is a little steep. Fishing dock and rental boats right on site. All in all a well run, good place to camp.

This park is in the process of being upgraded. WiFi was being installed as we got there and we got great reception. It has some deficiencies, but this has to be one of the prettiest parks we have ever used. We had a redwood in our site. Amazing. neat location for seeing the area and nice people. When I think of California redwoods, I will think of this campground. We would definitely stay here again.

It is not often you get to see an owner who really doesn't like her customers. Things would be great if she didn't have those pesky people around to bother her. This is your place if you want this. Lots of little signs all around. WiFi in office only, and locked when office people not around. There is a 180 degree turn from I-80 that a motorhome has trouble with. Sites unlevel, very bad road noise. I do not know what other parks are available, but will sure try to find out next time.

This is a parking lot behind a hotel and casino. Sites are very unlevel for being paved. Never could find the showers. Our electrical receptacle was installed upside down and I had to take off my surge protector and tie it in with twine. My neighbors sewage hole was too small for a hose. The Wi-Fi did not work in parking lot and I had to go to the lobby. The registration was unmarked and we eventually found it in the casino (very smoky). We paid $18.50 Good Sam rate). Hard to get in and out due to hotel traffic. It is located in a spot where there are very few other choices though. To the former reviewer that got the site with the tree, I hate to be the one to tell you that it must have died, as we saw no trees.

Passport America rate. We were in the slack season between winter and summer. Park nice, some highway noise, several lakes on site. During winter it is filled with snowbirds.Looks a little rough when entering as all you see is the coach storage area, but interior is very nice. Train noise at night, but this is true for so many parks in th west. Remember, they do not do daylight savings time, so you are 3 hours behind Eastern time.

We spent several days rained in at this campground, bit it Sun Runners RV Park’t their fault, of course. Got the Passport America half price discount the first day. This is a very old campground, but in a good location between Foley and Gulf Shores. Interior roads are a little tight, but not unacceptable. Roads and sites are unpaved. About 10 minutes from Gulf Shores and associated attractions. Quite a few seasonals. Nice bathrooms and washing areas. 15 and 30 amp only connections. Our site was very large.

This is an older campground, but very will maintained. It has several lakes and we were right on the lake. Sties were a bit short, but OK for us. The ranger directed us backwards through a one way, and told us to back in as we had to pull in because the hookups were on the wrong side. No problem though. Picnic table at site. No room for our awning. Bathrooms were very clean. Many pine trees in the beautiful campground. Easy in and out to HWY 98. Close to city. Water pressure was good. 30 Amp hookups only.

This is a famous old campground in the Panhandle of Florida. It is old, but very well maintained. We had a great waterfront site and could see the water all out of our windshield. The interior roads were a little tight. Restrooms were clean. They had internet access (free WiFi) which was fairly fast. It is located within 5 minutes of Carrabelle and 20 minutes of Apalachicola. Great restaurants are found in the latter. The whole area is still suffering from the affects of the hurricanes and much of the beach front housing is for sale. I believe the hurricanes affected the oyster beds and the area has a depressed feel.

After leaving another in town park, we drove to this park on the same street, about 2 miles away, and were disappointed to see that the area itself was not good. My wife was afraid to stay, and as we would be driving back and forth to the French Quarter at night and she felt unsafe. I did not actually stay here and keep that in mind when making your decision.

We called to make a reservation here after seeing their ad in Trailer life. Once we arrived there, my wife was afraid to stay. It was in a dangerous part of town, and had to be surrounded with a high fence. We intended to be coming and going at night, so we decided not to stay at all. We were unable to actually report on the inside conitions at all. There were lots of FEMA trailers in the area, and it certainly did not appear to be safe. We went west about 25 miles to camp in a traditional campground in LaPlace and drove in via I-10.

We stayed for about 10 days due to my wife’s 2 reunions. The sites were large and easy in and out. Rest rooms nice and clean. Our site was a little unlevel (4” in length of coach). The lake was almost dry, but this exist all over the South now. With this park, the big factor is the trains. I mean they average about 3 per hour 24/7. Mainly empty car carriers. We ran our AC at night and this drowned out the noise. I even slept in my hammock during the day some. Never knew there were so many trains in Ga. We ate out at two great spots: one in Cartersville Square called Ross Dinner. Opened 71 years ago and very good and cheap. The other one was called Doug’s Place and just as good. The problem is it is located in the town of Emerson which is a huge ticket trap. 1200 people and 9 cops. Cost me $89. Avoid Emerson at all cost and take I-75 to Cartersville.

This 450 acre park is owned and operated by the city of Jacksonville and is absolutely beautiful. Our site was a ways from our neighbors and very wooded. There are 14 miles of trails (biking and hiking) and we spent lots of time hiking and walking on the beach (4 miles of pristine beach). The staff was very friendly and even had a $2.00 pancake breakfast on Monday morning and always had free coffee and newspapers. They go the extra mile. Our site was a little uneven, but not a problem. There was no cable TV, but we don’t watch it much anyway. No WiFi. The one slight negative we had was the Naval aircraft carrier base about 5 miles away always had up a helicopter or two (I guess looking for terrorists.) and even at about 2,000 feet up they made some noise. Nothing that was a bother though. Showers and bathrooms were modern and clean. They have many located through out the park. We will definitely make a return trip. I recommend approaching the park from A1A South or North to avoid the big traffic through Jacksonville. From the North you can take a neat ferry ride for $3.00 across the intercostals waterway. There is a great fish house called Safe Harbor Fish company that buys all the local commercial catch and also has a small restaurant on the side. Very good and fairly cheap.

We spent 3 nights at this park and found it to be delightful. Very friendly. Even invited us to an all you could eat fish fry on Friday night. (I can eat a lot.) My wife uses the bathrooms and I use the camper’s shower. She reported that they were very clean and that the laundry was nice. There is a large lake in the center and campsites all around. Nice club house and recreation hall. It is close to a private airport and we did hear several airplanes during the day, but it was not offensive. We had a pull thru site, but I would say there are about half and half back-ins. Roads are paved and most sites have a pad. WiFi is available. We stayed in a motor home in Jan 2007 and we will be back.
