Stoney's is a great fish camp, or an RV camp with a lot of color. The Salmon run justifies the high rate, and you can get a guide who will almost guarantee you a good catch. That said, for the non-fishing customer, this may not be the place for you. Roads are rough, there are many dilapidated RVs on site, and the fish smell is prevalent. We loved it and hope to return to fish.
We enjoyed our stay here for its proximity to Maryville and to the Smokies. The parking is a bit of a walk to the office and camp store. Friendly staff. Nice walks by the river. We would stay here again.
We enjoyed staying here. Site plenty large and used only one block to level the trailer. The staff were friendly and helpful, laundry room clean, and camp store very adequate. But no alcohol for sale. It is a 10 minute drive to town. We would stay here again.
Yes, the staff are friendly and helpful. The store is good, hot food available, beer and wine except on Sunday (dry county). Our only complaints were the very poor cable reception (even in their office), and very poor cell phone reception (Verizon, which usually works when others don't). Also, it is hard to keep the trailer floor clean when it rains. We won't stay here again.
We have stayed at 3 RV parks within Tallahassee over the last 6 years, and this one is by far the nicest one. It is right off the Interstate (1/2 mile) at the eastern side of town, with paved roads and level sites. The landscaping is pretty, and the grounds are kept up consistently. Sites are gravel. There are 2 restrooms with showers, always clean, near the office area. We enjoy the proximity to Publix across the road. It is the first park we choose when visiting family in the city. Our stays are usually 4-5 days.
Price reflects Golden Pass discount. The sites are sandy and level. Most of the bigger trees were blown down by Hurricane Ivan a few years ago. So, no foliage separation of sites. The fort is closely by hike,bike, or car. It is well worth the price of admission, as they say. At our visit, it was very windy. The Bay and Gulf beaches are a short walk away. restrooms were rustic, clean (with wet, sandy floors). We will return.
Very friendly and helpful managers. Easy to access off I-75. The restrooms/showers were older, but pristine. Sites are grass, mostly level (we did choose to place wheel blocks under one side). This campground is only about 10 minutes from the very cute little downtown of High Springs. We enjoyed our stay there with another couple for 4 days. Will return.
$35 must be what the market will bear. The location is great, just off I-10 on Capitol Circle west of town. The park is at least 40 years old. The owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. There are many sites for overnight camping, all pullthrough, grass, full hookups, and level. There are many long motorhomes here now. The perimeter with shade is for long-term campers. The place was clean, tidy. We felt safe here. Not a "destination" park, but great for staying while visiting the city.
We enjoyed our 5-night stay. The owners, Marla and Kevin, are very friendly, knowledgeable, and like the rest of New Orleans, laid-back. The grounds and pool/gazebo area are nicely tended, landscaped. They will drive you to the French Quarter for $5 each, each way. Which is good, because major taxi companies will not pick up from that address. Yes, it is in a marginal area of East New Orleans. The park is gated after dark, and we never had any reason to feel unsafe. It was a very comfortable, homey kind of place. If you want to see New Orleans, it will give you a very hospitable place to stay without paying an arm and a leg.
We have stayed here many times visiting family in Tallahassee. The staff are friendly. Highway construction has been going on forever; but it's really not that big a deal. The Publix is across the street, Walmart down the road. This is on Capitol Circle east of town, and just off I-10, so easy access to everything. The grounds are well-kept, pool clean. The restrooms/showers number only 2, are small, but clean. We enjoy staying there.
We love this park which is only about 1/2 hour from DC. It is in a very well-kept city park of many acres of woods, with playgrounds, nice-sized swimming pool/ water park. There are no water or sewer hookups, but potable water is available on the way in. There are many big rigs here in pull-through sites. The bathhouses are close by and clean. We would recommend this to anyone wanting to access the DC area conveniently. Shopping is a block away.
This campground is a bit dismal. The A/C did not work for us, tho we did have full h/u. Staff is not very friendly, but not rude. It is at least an hour from DC. Laundry in the bathhouse along with bathrooms and shower (coed) need sprucing up. However, the price was right (plus VAT tax).
We stayed here a week while in Tallahassee. It is the only park within the city, and is convenient to everything within 5-15 minutes. This is not a good park for you if you are not self-contained. There is one bathroom for each gender, so you may have to wait a while (the shower is also in the bathroom). No paper towels, so bring your own towel. There are many permanent or semi-permanent residents here; but the park is clean, very quiet, and the staff are friendly. We would stay here again.
It was a long drive from I-40, but through a lovely route, and cooler in July. It was a relief, an oasis, both the drive in and the park itself. We would love to stay again with more than one night to spare.
My husband says "two stars." Very adequate for an overnight stay. Just off the I-40, convenient on /off; restaurant adjacent (we did not try it), nice lady at registration in the restaurant, and full hook-ups. Really an overnighter with no complaints.
Great park convenient to I-55 with extremely nice owner managers on site. Plenty of level pull through sites with 30 and 50 amps. Very sufficient for our needs for an overnight stay. We enjoyed our stay!
Our first question was, "what's the catch?". The Oasis is a pristine, spacious campground with an unbelievable price. No complaints for what it was. We prefer a more rustic feel, but this place had everything: level pads, a chance to catch up on internet, clean house, etc. Laundry was free! We would stay again for an overnight.
Location, location! We had a view of Mono Lake from our kitchen window, as we were camped on the grassy area to the north side of the park (W/E only). No Full H/U were available when we arrived late in the afternoon without a reservation. Most of the full h/u spaces have shade, although we hardly needed it with the cooler weather (mid-70's). The sites all appear to be very level and grassy, with nicely maintained gravel roads. The nights were very cold, in the 40's. We recommend going to the South Tufa ranger talks to get a great overview of the ecology, geology, and natural history of Mono Lake. There is an information center on the main street (Hwy 395) which has bundles of information about the area. One must go to Mammoth Lakes to find a pharmacy, or more than one grocery store. The ghost town of Bodie is about an hour north, given the last 3 miles of rough, gravel road. It is a very cool old gold-mining town, rich in history. We really enjoyed our stay here, 4 nights, and hope to visit again next year based out of this park.
A long, slow, steep and curvy road to the Juniper Campground near the top around 3,000 feet. Our trailer is 20 feet, which is just about the limit. Dry camping. Juniper is the only campground on Mount Diablo with showers. Contrary to the web site, the showers were operational in July 2009. Also no dump sites on the mountain. There is a campground (Live Oak) nearer the bottom at the south entrance out of Danville. It took us 40 minutes minimum to get up and down the mountain to Walnut Creek, North Gate. But it was worth it. The views down on the valley below are phenomenal, especially the sunsets. There are many, many trails to hike if you are in good shape. Bicyclers are always going up and down the main road (scary!). Not many critters to see though. If you want seclusion, great air, great views, don't mind dry-camping and don't have a big rig, this is a great place to decompress. See the web site for descriptions of the many other worthwhile places in the park. There are other campgrounds; Live Oak is at 1400 feet, with 22 sites, and an open area at the Junction Ranger Station has 6 sites.
I would not call this a parking lot by any stretch. Nice, level, long pull-throughs; the full hook-up sites have few trees (get #40 or 41 for shade), so it is hot in the summer afternoons. The water-electric sites are in the pines. The restrooms and showers are clean. We are staying 6 nights, and so far we are happy with the park. A bonus is the location very close to Grass Valley and Nevada City. Also, the fairgrounds have something going on most of the summer, and it is an easy walk (or drive) over to the events. There is a horse show this weekend, and a Ham Radio field days. We have good free Wi-Fi and cell service.
Dry camping for tents or for RV under 24'. Very tight turns. Big boulders. No directional signs for one-way roads in order to back-in. Crunched up our Airstream on a boulder trying to turn around. Our fault, should have driven around again! Nice trails, lots of room around each site. Must unhitch to fit vehicle into the concrete pad, which is very wide and level. If you don't have a problem with rig size, it is a very pretty park, high in the Donner Pass area just west of Truckee off I-80.
The park has nowhere acceptable to walk a dog. They are not allowed on any grassy area (few and far between anyway), and the little dog area is concrete with some worn away gravel, filthy, and I got my dog out of there in seconds. There was strong sewer smell in an area of the park where we were not parked. Next time I will drive into Provo.
Good Sam park. Very gracious managers and a well-stocked store. We enjoyed our stay here and will stay there again. It is a few minutes drive to the freeway and to the old, picturesque downtown gaming area. We highly recommend it.
We love this park! Owners are very friendly and helpful about the Taos area. They give military discounts to any active or former military. Great store. I found many inexpensive souvenirs. The restrooms/showers are pristine. Only 2, but the park is small. There is a groomed walking trail into the hills from the camp through the surrounding desert with blooming cacti and scrub. Fantastic! There is a good view of the town of Taos, about 10 minutes away. This park avoids the traffic congestion of Taos while being conveniently close to the activities and restaurants (way too many to count!). We hope to stay there again, but longer next time.
We were here 2 nights, and wished we had more time. We prefer the "state park" environment in RV Parks. 1-mile long perimeter trail through lush juniper and pine, very well-groomed and little elevation change. They are offering discounts for almost any card or club. Would stay here again (and hope we do!).
Elevation is around 8800 ft, so not much in the way of trees here. Next to a small airfield with many gliders to watch take off and land. Minutes from town. Good gravel coverage in the park, well-kept and tidy. Nice staff who were very accommodating. They have a no-refund policy; but my husband had a hard time breathing overnight, so they credited back the second night. Wish we could have stayed!
We spent 3 nights here, and wished we could have stayed longer. Staff: great! Sites: level, clean, spacious, many with shade. Pet area: best I have ever seen, a huge field, completely fenced in. 2 miles north of the town of Durango. Spectacular drive to the north to Black Canyon of the Gunnison outside of Montrose, 3 high passes to climb, so made it a day trip without the trailer. Wifi and cell can be spotty depending on location within the park. Loved it!
We stayed here 4 nights. It is a West Texas natural environment, so semi-arid with few trees. The prickly pear cacti were in bloom and were colorfully spectacular. Great hiking trails. Rangers were very informative and friendly.We loved it and would return.
We stayed 2 nights to explore the canyon. We saw lots of deer! Great hiking for all levels. The canyon is beautiful, especially the walls at sunset. Lots of biting gnats or flies. Be ready! Rangers were the best. Pay attention to the water level sign warnings if you go in the rainy season. We would go back.
Hard to see the sign from the highway; but it is on the left side of NM 528 heading south, just before the Walmart. No good place to walk a pet. Used a break in the perimeter fence to go out into the scrubby field. Park was almost full. Like a big parking lot. Site level, no complaints about the services provided. Not sure what the "resort" aspect is. OK for one night. Would not stay there again.
We stayed there for 2 nights to visit Chaco for a full day-trip. The staff were extremely nice, and one of them walked our dog twice during the day for $5 each. Great pet area where they can run and play with other dogs. The grounds around the front are planted with lots of pretty roses and others plantings. Not a ton of trees, but then again we are in the desert! Site was level gravel. We would stay there again.
We stayed 2 days and would have stayed longer if schedule had allowed. Nicely wooded, quiet. We took the hike to the falls which is not spectacular, but is pretty and peaceful. The trails separate to go to the top or bottom of the falls, both trails fairly steep downhill and up!). but not long. To get to the falls at the bottom requires some rock climbing.
Price is shoulder season with KOA discount. This campground is pristine, lots of woods throughout, very helpful and friendly staff. Nice upstairs lodge-type gathering room. Office area has great gift shop with some basic groceries. Ready access to the Ausable River (great fishing), canoe rentals, 15 minutes from Lake Placid. We liked it so much that we extended our stay for 3 weeks, and have reserved a month next August. Reservations are highly recommended.
Great overnight park. Cleanest bathroom and showers I have seen. Green grassy patch and young (5 yrs?) by each site, with very friendly staff and level sites. Quiet and convenient to I-81. Would definitely stay again.
Many pull-thru sites, nice green grassy patch at each site. Nice gift shop with a few groceries, and ice cream cones. Very friendly staff. Very pastoral area, quiet and peaceful feeling, even though it is very close to Interstate 81. No Campground area Wi-Fi. Internet available in the office area. Good overnight stopping place.
A very nice, quiet, clean campground outside the town of Mitchell on Hwy 38. Very friendly, helpful host/owner. Shaded sites. Large pet walk area. Clean pool, free putt-putt golf and horseshoes. Very good Wi-Fi.
Be aware that the State of NE requires a $20 per year camping sticker to stay at their parks, which can be bought on site. The road Hwy 67 from the south into the park is a gravel road for 8 miles. It was in good shape. The park is beautiful, with many hiking trails (fairly steep on the easiest of them). The cave area was closed due to flooding when we were there. Many miles of paved roads for biking or walking. Many spectacular overlooks of the MO River. We spent 3 nights there and would definitely go again.
Coming down I-70W, we stopped for lunch in the little historical town of Rocheport, at a very cute organic type cafe in an old historical building on the small main street. Food was awesome! Also stopped at the winery called Les Bourgeoise. Missouri does indeed have some very good wines! Arrow Rock State Park has elect only. There is a paved road throughout the small park, with tent campground and RV campground. All roads are a little steep. There is a beautiful overlook over the MO River on one of the loop roads.
We loved this campground. Very quiet, good shade. Clean. Stayed two days, and drove into Union City, a very old and pretty town with many historic buildings and friendly people. There is Wi-Fi available in the town library.
Though short on amenities, we liked this spot. There is water available by hydrant for general area. Pitt toilets. An old cemetery is on the grounds, and there is a great view over the Miss. River Valley. On the weekend it was used by quite a few families.
Nice people. Beautiful lake. Can tent camp right at the lake. The RV sites are not well-shaded. The bathroom porcelain was clean, but the stalls and building inside were not. Very rustic. Good location proximal to Bardstown. No swimming in the lake. They held a fishing tournament for kids for charity while we were there, which was fun and well-attended.
We spent a few days here, seeing the Rocket Center and the mansion down the hill from the park, both well worth the visits. The park is very well done, with spectacular overlooks from a road near the campground. Be careful of ticks this year in the grasses and woods around the campground. If you like hiking/walking, there is a very good paved road leading from the overlook parking area for about a mile or so with a good but gentle grade. It's the old road into the park which is now closed. We liked the park and would stay there again.
Great park, though very steep access. The view from the restaurant and pool is spectacular. Restaurant buffet is worth a visit. Great hiking available outside the park to Cheaha Falls. Ask at park for directions, as it is not far. Most hikes in the park were too steep for us.
We were able to get a site at the periphery of the park, so we had shaded area. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and the camp store is well-stocked. There are western-style dances at the main building a few nights a week, to which local folks come. May be an alcohol-free environment. There is a coded security gate.
Very nice campground host. Laundry facilities were very useful. The campground is on a bluff above the main highway. A dirt trail leads down to a pond and back up the other side. There seemed to be a large number of longer-term residents at one end of the park. Good value.
This is not a destination campground, but is a wonderfully inexpensive lodging in the proximity of Lake Worth. We were camped in the open without trees in the Florida heat. Very crowded. However, it was clean and had a security gate with coded entry. We would use this facility again when we need to visit the area.
This was our best camping experience yet. The park is huge, conveniently off I-75 just north of Gainesville. We were able to ride our city bikes for over 8 miles in the woods, following the Sante Fe river for a bit over wide trails under shade trees. No one else was around, and the sense of being in the wilds created a breath-taking experience. We saw a pod of gopher turtles at the water's edge, and all kinds of birds (and one snake). Fireflies entertained us in the dark of night. This area is not far from Cross Creek which Mrjorie Kannan Rawlings wrote about in her memoirs of the same name.
Though sites are close, the trees and shrubs give the feeling of privacy. Trails lead to the river and boat ramp, and some canoes are available for rent. It is a wilderness river area. The picnic area consists of acres of nicely wooded and grassy field with grills right at the river. The old Koreshan community is a museum village and is reached by long stroll (15-20 minutes), short drive within the park, or by bicycle. Great park!
This park is one of our favorites. Woods abound. The Chassahowitzka River comes into the campground property, and kayaks/canoes are available for rent. The store stocks most supplies you could want, including ice cream. It is lovely and peaceful.
We love this park and have stayed there many times in the last few years. Sites are close together, but it does not seem crowded. Great walking trail that leaves out of the concession area. The restaurant has buffets which are very reasonably priced and varied in choices. There is a petting zoo for kids and pony rides. The Disney shuttle service is free, and the entire park is accessible without getting in your car. Golf carts are available for rent. They can sell out for big athletic events and holidays, so book ahead.
This was our second stay at the park. We were greeted by the campground host of five years. He assured me he could guide me into the back-in site while my husband was busy in the office, and he did! It was easy and successful. Our site was on the beautifully-wooded canal with a large deck with chairs over the water. Manatees come into the water from the Bay, and we had regular visits from 2 giant blue herons. There is a long grassy dog walk area and visitors had been good about picking up after their animals. There was a wooden boat gathering across the highway from the park which we enjoyed. The Bradenton Beach is a long stroll or a short drive across the bridge. We love it there and will stay again. It is becoming condominiumized.
