We always stay here on our way south. Easy access off the highway and very well marked. The owner and staff have always been very professional and courteous to us. Facilities are excellent with pool and hot tub, pool table,continental breakfast available. Nice park to walk the dogs. Great overnight stop. Wi-Fi is just OK. Cable is OK. Cannot comment on restrooms or showers as we did not use them. Park is very well maintained!

Ocean Lakes is an awesome destination camping experience! We have camped here every year for six years. They know how to run a business! They do it all RIGHT! I would compare them to Disney....both excellent! That being said, we feel that rules are not being enforced like they used to be. Security is lacking. On more than one occasion this visit, while walking the dogs, kids on golf carts tried to run us off the road. They thought it was hilarious. I should have reported them but I let it slide. I witnessed Security driving by a few children that were definitely not old enough to possess a driver's license...driving golf carts. Security did not seem to care. Fireworks were also a huge problem this year...and they were definitely on Ocean Lakes property. As I said, everything was great with the exception of enforcing some of the rules. We will be returning for another week and hope that our experience is without incident. It would be a shame for us not to be able to enjoy our favorite park because of security issues that could have been fixed.

We always stay at this convenient park when headed to FL on our annual trip. We always find the staff to be friendly and efficient and have not had any issues. I cannot comment on restroom or shower facilities or laundry as it is a one night stop for us. No complaints. No cable!

We stayed at this Resort during peak season for the Autumn Leaves and it was beautiful in every way! We had a very nice site which backed up to the lake. This RV Park is one of the most big rig friendly resorts we have seen with many pull-through sites. We were thankful that tents were not allowed having just come from a rather large noisy, smoky park! This park is large and has a beautiful walking trail that encircles the lake. All utilities worked well. Wi-Fi was terrific! Cable was great!! Our site was spacious and had a good size fire pit with a grill top. The park itself was very quiet and the staff members we spoke with were very friendly and helpful. We used Enterprise to rent a car. There is a little Fish Market called Flanders Fish Market right down the road about five minutes and we had a great meal there! The grocery store across the street was clean and very well stocked. We hope to be able to stay longer on our next visit. It was terrific!

We had an enjoyable time at this campground, but it is not an RV Resort. It is a campground. Not for Big Rigs. It is very wooded. We are 32 feet long and we really had to be careful between overhanging tree limbs and huge rocks / boulders. It is a perfect place for families with children. We do not travel with kids. Fires are going all day every day. Beautiful place to walk around in the Fall though, scenery was very nice. The Wi-Fi was spotty but we could get access, but not stay connected for very long. Nice place for pets. We stayed here as it is close to family and the only park around. Unfortunately, they had no spots with sewers which did not make us happy. We might stay here again.

There isn't one thing I would change about Pine Hill. We loved every minute of our visit. Staff were terrific hosts. The park itself was immaculate. It was not crowded while we were there. The Wi-Fi at our site which was a 50 amp site was terrific. No problems with leveling at all. The mini golf area and playground were in perfect condition. The store and front desk area were immaculate and it was terrific that they had ice, milk, eggs, right there on site. Beautiful views of the surrounding area and close to the highway, easy on and off to get anywhere. The mall was only about a 15 minute drive. Everyone picked up after their pets so no problem there. We liked that there was plenty of wide open space to walk our bichons. No pool, but we don't use them anyway. The cable was amazing, probably 100 channels or more! The owners clearly care a great deal about their park and it shows! We would definitely recommend this place!

The Ohio Turnpike provides facilities at seven service areas on their turnpike. Electric, Dump Station, and Potable Water are available for a fee of $15.00 on a first-come, first-serve basis. There are a limited number of spaces. I believe there were about eight spaces at the one we stayed at. This facility was perfect for us as we are in a self-contained RV and were just looking for a place to pull over, take the dogs out, and sleep overnight. Across the parking lot is a beautiful facility with a Starbucks, Pizza Place, and some sort of breakfast restaurant as well. I rate this a 10 as we will definitely utilize this facility again.

This park was a one night stop for us. We were pleased that the nightly rate included Wi-Fi without any extra charge. I would have rated it higher if cable was included. The facilities were well kept and the staff was friendly. There was ample space for dog walking. We would stay here again for an overnight.

We stayed at this park for two nights. Overall, we were pleased and would stay here again. The facilities were very neat and clean. The people were very friendly and helpful. Ample areas for dog walking. We loved being able to bike ride to the shops. We were not there during the flea market, but there are plenty of other shops to visit! The only negative I can think of is that the Wi-Fi service is not included in the nightly rate.

We stayed here for two nights to visit the Corn Palace. We had a pleasant experience. The Corn Palace was within biking distance, about 15 minutes away. It was an easy ride. The location is perfect if you are there to visit the Palace. We found nice restaurants. The front desk personnel were very friendly and willing to assist us with questions. Had absolutely no problems with our pets. The cable and Wi-Fi were great. We'd definitely stay there again.

This park is a true resort! We absolutely loved it and have nothing negative to say about it. The facilities are absolutely gorgeous. The views and landscaping are stunning! The front desk personnel were very pleasant and outgoing. We would absolutely stay here again and again! I would not hesitate to recommend this resort! It is the best resort we have ever stayed at.

We stayed at this park for a week. We were very pleased with the location and the grounds! The facilities were very nice, and they seemed to have everything we needed. I did not give it a higher rating because they told us we would have WI-FI in the base camp. The WI-FI was awful!! We could not keep our signal even though we had an antenna extender. Fortunately Cable and WI-FI were included in our rate. I would suggest that the office NOT guarantee WI-FI service in the base camp if it does not work efficiently. I believe there were too many users, and the system was overloaded. Other than that we had no problems and would stay here again.

We had a good experience at this campground. The camp store had what we needed and appeared to be well stocked and well taken care of. We were only there for one night but while we were there we did not have any problems. Wi-Fi signal was strong. We had asked for an end site and were very happy. We would definitely stay here again.

I can't say enough about this campground! It is an excellent place to stay. The facilities are just great. There is a casino on site with a bus that will pick you up whenever you want and bring you back. The food is excellent. The staff was very friendly. Highly recommend this place and will definitely stay again. Only downside is no cable. Wi-Fi was great with strong signal.

We had a very good experience at this campground. We were there for just one night but were happy to have Wi-Fi. The laundry was clean and office was very clean and well kept. The grounds were very nice and well maintained. The personnel were very friendly! Had a slight problem with the Wi-Fi connection that was taken care of immediately. For the price, can't beat this place. We'd definitely stay here again. Very pet friendly. Only negative is no cable.

We had a pleasant experience at this park. We only stayed one night but were very happy that we had Wi-Fi. Sites were very spacious and very big rig friendly. We didn't use the restrooms or showers or pool...so can't answer to that, but it was fine for one night and it was a great price. The park is not hard to find and we would stay there again.

We were very pleased with this campground. We stopped here for just one night, but were very happy to have good Wi-Fi with strong signal. I had asked for an end site because we have an elderly dog. Site met our expectations just fine! They had a nice ice cream shop on the premises. I can't say much about the pool as we didn't use it, but the rest of the facility seemed very clean and well cared for. Staff was very pleasant and it was nice to have a restaurant and store on the premises. We would definitely return!

It is difficult to write a positive review for this campground. When we checked in, it was the owner's kids who were in charge. They were friendly enough. The store is rather cramped and didn't offer very much of a selection. It just appears that this is kind of an older campground that is trying to keep up, but isn't succeeding very well. The site was just OK. There were some rowdy tent campers down from us and the sheriff was called. We are not sure why they were there, but they were there for a very long time! I didn't feel particularly secure at this place. The town of Granville is a small town and our GPS steered us around some very difficult streets. Weren't quite sure we were going to make some of the turns! There was also construction going on in the town. It was OK for a one night stay but we would not stay here again.

Nothing but praise for this terrific campground!! It was beautiful!! Very good security. The girl at the front desk was very pleasant when we checked in. They had just reopened for the season so the store was not yet stocked, but I would think it would be great when fully operational. The pool looked beautiful! The grounds were fantastic and it looks like the owners take a lot of pride in keeping the place clean and well managed. Plenty of room to walk the dogs. Our WIFI worked great at our site. It was just a very pleasant experience and we would like to stay longer next time. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone! GREAT Campground!! Would definitely return.

We were very pleased with this campground. Having never stayed at a KOA before, we weren't sure what to expect. The owners were just the most pleasant people!! Made us feel like family! Even gave our dogs very nice treats when we checked in! The on-site store was beautiful and very cozy and clean! The pool was not open when we were there, and the park was not crowded. The owner personally escorted us to our site and even gave us a more private one with room to accommodate our elderly lab. There was plenty of nice walking space for the dogs. I cannot say anything negative about this place. It was perfect. It is very obvious that the owners actually care a great deal about the condition of the park. The lights around the pool were a nice decorative touch!! We would definitely recommend this campground to anyone and will definitely return!

We found this campground to be absolutely perfect in every way! I gave it a 9 because they do not currently have a pool. It's in a perfect location for easy on/off expressway. Owner very pleasant and ready to please! Facilities are new and in perfect condition! We travel with three dogs and there was plenty of walking area. The place was not busy when we were there and we got to pick our own site. Plenty of room for a big rig!! Will definitely stay here again.

We were not particularly pleased with this park. For the price that you pay--and we did upgrade to one of the new sites with the deck and gas grill--we didn't feel that the park was managed very well. It is a big park. You could ask the same question to different people and get totally different answers. The transportation around the facility is not good. We enjoyed visiting the mountain. We did not appreciate kids running wildly through our campsite and peering in our windows. WIFI worked fine at our site. The site was very dirty when we checked in. The "brand new" gas grill had not been cleaned and there were beer cans all over the deck. We will not be returning to this campground, nor will I recommend it.

This is a state of the art RV Resort and one which should be duplicated in every state!! We absolutely loved this place. We travel with three dogs and no children. It is primarily an adult resort. The Clubhouse is better than most Resort Conference Centers. They are still in the process of building this place and it will be incredible when complete. The office staff was friendly. I did not speak with the owners, but the workampers were very pleasant and helpful. There is not a lot to do outside the resort, but if you just want a place to go and relax: this place is a destination! They have activities: movie nights, fire pits, barbecues, etc. Beautiful landscaping to walk around and take pictures. The pool was not complete when we were here, but will be very soon. The laundry facilities are state of the art. Very good security. Escorted to our site. I have nothing bad to say about this place and highly recommend it!! We will definitely be returning and staying much longer next time.

We loved this park in every way. The location is absolutely perfect as a base for visiting Daytona and St. Augustine on day trips. There are restaurants within biking distance, as well as a few little gift shops. The on-site store was adequate. It was nice to have a fairly good size laundry room with machines and dryers that worked well. Everything was clean. It was not crowded during our visit, which is the way we prefer it! I would highly recommend this place. The sites are close together and the sites are on the beach: which means you will have sand everywhere. A small price to pay for true oceanfront camping. We will return.

Highly recommend this park!!! It is a state of the art full service resort. We were so pleased with this park in every single way. No complaints!! We loved it so much we extended an extra three days. The view was perfect, the condition of the park was perfect. We loved the restaurant where the prices were more than reasonable. Entertainment was terrific! There was a family group singing while we were there and they were just tremendous!! The front desk personnel and all of the employees were friendly. The store was small, but there is a Wal-Mart within a half mile. Very convenient to everything! We visited the beaches, Amelia Island, it was just perfect in every way. Our site was very level as we were on a concrete pad with our own deck.

This campground is in a beautiful location! Very woodsy with lots of space to ride bikes and walk our dogs. The front desk people were very polite and helpful, as were the guys that came when we called about our electrical problems. It rained HARD most of the time we were there, but our site drained...no problem. WIFI was terrific at our site, satellites may experience problems as it is very wooded. We would return.

This "campground" is an RV Resort in my mind. There is nothing that you could possibly want that you will not find at this park. Every single thing was perfect. I will say that their WIFI is very expensive. The golf car rental is expensive also, but we were very glad that we rented one. We did not have a car while we were there for two weeks and we could bike to WalMart which was a couple of miles away. The park was not full when we were there and we had no problems whatsoever with our dogs...they were allowed on the beach while we were there. Just a beautiful location with state of the art laundry facilities, pizza delivery by golf cart, very nice HUGE store and gift shop. Beautiful facility!! We camped here in an oceanfront site in a motorhome and we WILL DEFINITELY return!

The park itself is quite basic. Please note that there are NO bathrooms!! It is pretty easy access to the main roads so not difficult to get to. Our GPS got us a bit messed up and you must be careful or you will get on some pretty desolate roads with low underpasses. That happened to us! The owner was extremely pleasant to deal with and ready to help in any way. We travel with three dogs and had absolutely no problem at all. Good overnight stop.
