This is a nice enough park, with a great location close to downtown. The sites were waterlogged from all the rain, but the staff relocated us after initially assigning us to a site underwater. Access is easy, and the laundry room was clean. There wasn't much landscaping, and plenty of rules about what you can and can not do. Our dogs enjoyed playing in the river where dogs are allowed; the rest of the beach is off-limits to dogs, and there is no fenced in dog run. It was a suitable place to stay for a few nights, even though a bit expensive for what you get.
The only downside of beautiful Spruce Grove is that the free WiFi didn't reach to our site on the river. We had plenty of room to back into our site, and loved walking our dogs through the grounds. The staff was helpful and friendly. The location is perfect: the hot springs are only a 5 minute drive away, and half-price ($5 Canadian) for the last hour of the day, 9-10 p.m. This is a great overnight park on the way to Banff.
We enjoyed our stay here, as we're not big on the traditional trappings of an RV resort (pool, playground, etc.) that so many campgrounds have. Campfire Lodgings is in a beautiful mountainside setting, with several lovely hiking trails around the campground, and we and our dogs enjoyed them every day. The one-lane road up to the small campground was not a problem, and we had no trouble getting parked. There was no off-leash dog area, but that wasn't a problem because of the great hiking opportunities. We thought that $40 was a little steep for the off-season, with no discounts, otherwise we'd give it a "10!"
This is a great campground if you enjoy beautiful wooded campsites, as we do. We would give it a 10 if the sites were a bit farther apart, as the location on Jekyll Island is perfect -- the Driftwood Beach is a short walk away -- and the campground is well run and maintained. We had no problem getting in or out of our pull through site, and the utilities were all fine. While there was no designated off-leash area for our dogs, we found plenty of nearby places to walk them off-leash , so that wasn't a problem. We would definitely stay here again!
We camped here because it was the closest RV park to historic downtown Savannah, and it was easy to go back and forth. The park seems to be in transition, as they were setting up new gravel pads while we were there (we didn't see anything that approximated 25 camp sites with hook-ups). Red Gate Plantation itself is quite spacious, and we had a nice large site under a beautiful oak tree with a view of the lake. We're not sure what amenities would be available in the summer, although that's not very important to us. The owners were very laid back (a plus), but never stopped by after we got set up to offer us a map of Savannah or any other information. This park also needs to do some work on the technical details: the 50 amp service had the wrong fitting for the plug, and there was no circuit breaker. The sewer also had no cover plug, and sloped upward around the opening. Even so, we made it all work, and really enjoyed our stay.
We loved our stay at James Island. It was an easy drive into historic Charleston, the site was large with beautiful trees, and the nearby lakefront dog park (within the James Island County Park) meant that our dogs were happy, too. The park staff was very helpful, and it was easy to get our big rig into our space and back out again. We'd definitely come back here if we are ever lucky enough to be visiting Charleston again.
We stayed here for a few days to avoid bad weather in the Smoky Mountains. The staff was very efficient and helpful, and our site was as advertised, very close to the beach and easy to get our big rig into. The water wasn't the best, but they make up for it by offering free filtered water at a location within the park. While much larger than other places we've camped, it didn't have an off-leash dog area, which is why we didn't rate the park higher. Otherwise everything else was fine, although none of their seasonal facilities (outdoor pool, etc.) were open yet.
