This was a nice campground in a quiet area at the south end of town. Hookups all worked fine and Wi-Fi was fast. Park staff were all friendly and helpful and the spots were clean and roomy with small shade trees at most sites. This is a good base to visit the many sights in the area. We enjoyed our time there and will stay there again when in the area.

This park was a big disappointment for us. When we arrived for a 2 night stay we were required to pay for a 3 night minimum. Our Good Sam discount was not recognized either. We were required to pay a deposit for a gate card and then had to wait until late on the morning of our departure for the office to open so we could recover our money. When we were escorted to our site we passed by campers in poor condition, and some even appeared abandoned. Our site was newly concreted, but was so badly out of level that I used several blocks to level our camper. Power and water worked fine but the cable was snowy. WI-Fi was available but at an unreasonable cost. The park rules forbid large dogs but we were soon accosted by a pit bull and 2 German Shepard's who would have killed our little dog had we not reacted quickly. Rules required cleanup after dogs but the roads and paths were lined with droppings. We had to pay $2 extra for our little dog but there was no dog run and obviously the cost wasn't used for the park cleanup either. Traffic completely disregarded the speed limit and walking the park roads was risky. The only nice thing about this park was the lake. The ducks swimming in it made for a tranquil setting. If we're in the area again we'll definitely stay elsewhere.

Price reflects PA discount. We stayed here while visiting Sequoia park. The drive to the national park was reasonable, but a little long. Spaces were nice, but pretty close together. The owners were friendly and helpful. All hookups worked fine and Wi-Fi was available, but expensive. There was some traffic noise at night and frequent trains passed by as well. These sounds might be a problem for light sleepers but they didn't disturb us. We'd stay here again.

This park is a good place to stay while in or passing through the area. The Oasis resort is closed but the campground and pool are both still open. Sites are paved and the utilities and laundry all worked fine. Paid Wi-Fi was available but the price was unreasonable. Checking in required a trip to the Casa Blanca which was somewhat inconvenient since they were a few blocks away. It served it's purpose well though and we'd stop by again in the future.

This is a great place to stay while exploring Bryce Canyon. The free park shuttles are the best way to visit the canyon and are just a short 4 mile drive away. The RV park is peaceful and the spots beneath the trees are spacious and clean. What really sets this park apart though is the treatment we received here. The park staff were all very friendly and helpful. When we had vehicle problems they went out of their way to help us out. If you are looking for a place that's more than just a parking lot then this is the one for you. We'll happily stay here again when we're in the area.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. I suppose this was a bad time of year to visit this park. Most of the amenities were closed as was the office. We never saw any staff while we were there and even paid by envelope for our site. Hookups all worked fine and the pool was open and unattended, but that was it. This looks to be a snowbird paradise but in the summer it's just a place to stop for the night. For the money I'd stay here again though.

This park is in a great location for visiting Tombstone. It's within easy walking distance of the main street attractions, but it's far enough away to avoid the noise. The staff was very friendly and helpful and pointed out several must see sights in town. Sites were reasonably level, and the hookups worked fine, except for the cable. Most channels were snowy and some were unwatchable. Wi-Fi worked great and was fast. The office and area around it was pretty junky, but the rest of the park was nice and well kept. I'd stay here again.

This is a very nice campground and the location is perfect for seeing the many sights this area has to offer. Sites are gravel and neat and the hookups all worked fine. Wi-Fi was reliable and fast. The staff was very friendly and helpful and suggested several places to visit too. Fast food and groceries are within easy walking distance too. We'd definitely stay here again.

Rate reflects PA discount. This park is in a good location for visiting the space center and the beaches, but don't look at it as anything more than a place to spend the night. There wasn't anything to do here, and even walking our dog was a challenge with cars speeding through the park without regard for the speed limit or the safety of others. There was a cable TV connection but it did not work. However, our antenna pulled in many channels so that was not an issue for us. The outlet at our site was broken and the plug kept falling out, and the water hookup leaked through the faucet. The staff was very nice and helpful and that helped overcome the drawbacks. If you stay here be sure to ask for a site at the back of the park. The road noise at the front is loud and incessant. Next time I'll check around before coming back here.

Rate reflects PA discount. This is a beautiful, well maintained park with an extremely friendly staff who really made us feel welcome there. We were escorted to our concrete pull through site that was perfect for an overnight stay. The WI-Fi and utilities all functioned great too. This is an ideal spot for an overnight or as a base while seeing the area.

Rate reflects PA discount. This park was a great find! The owner and everyone we met there was very friendly and helpful. Sites are gravel and well spaced with many shade trees. Pool and grounds were clean and well maintained. Wi-Fi was fast and all hookups worked perfectly. The park was very peaceful with only a short drive to the beach or shopping. We'll definitely be coming back here again.

First, let me say the area is beautiful. Just a few miles west are some great air boat rides and Shark Valley is the place to go to see abundant wildlife. However, this RV park is by far the worst I have ever seen. The staff was rude and indifferent. The road was in poor condition and the grass at the campsites was tall. The water constantly looked and smelled rusty. It was so bad it even stained our shower and commode. Some full time residents were dumping waste water on the ground and a strong odor emanated from that. The power was unreliable as well. As we were leaving we discovered there was no water available at the dump station to clean our hose or the area. If you must stay here be sure to bring your own water and don't even try to bathe in that stuff. If you can at all, skip this place entirely. I sure do wish we had.

Rate reflects PA discount. We stayed here while exploring St. Augustine and it served us well for that. Our site was fairly level grass and the full hookups and Wi-Fi all worked well. There was some road noise from the nearby highway but it wasn't annoying to us at night. This park has several old campers in various levels of decay that detracted from the appearance. On check-in they said they'd had a rate increase from the advertised PA rate. Still a pretty good value compared to other parks in this area, but at full price I'd stay elsewhere.

Rate reflects PA discount. This park is a great place to be while visiting the many historic attractions in Charleston. It is close enough to the city without having all of the traffic and noise. The park is nicely maintained and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Our site was grass and level and the hookups all worked fine. Several TV channels were available with our antenna and the Wi-Fi worked OK. The gravel roads were a little dusty but other than that this was a great place to stay. I'd definitely stay here again.

This park is really something! It is absolutely beautiful and well laid out with plenty of activities for everyone. The sites are reasonably spacious with concrete pads and easy access. However, it is a very active and loud park, with music booming from golf carts and teenagers yelling and screaming into the night and fireworks exploding past midnight. Few vehicles obey the speed limits either and pedestrians have to be very careful. If your family includes teenagers this is the place to be, but if you're looking for a quiet retreat this is definitely not for you.

This is a pretty nice park for an overnight. The park was neat and well maintained. Staff was friendly and directed us to our site. The park was quiet at night except for road noise, which wasn't too bad in the back. Sites were grass and level with full hookups but no cable or wireless. There were several local TV channels and we picked up free wireless from a nearby motel. I'd be happy to stay here again when in the area.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. This is an older campground that has many permanent residents. The owners are clearly trying to renovate and upgrade the park, but they have a lot left to do before I'd call it a good place to stay. Water pressure drops considerably at times and wifi only works near the office. Several large dogs ran free and their droppings were not a pleasant experience to be around. The staff was friendly but the locals mostly were not. A wave or hello was usually met with a hard stare in return. Many of the trailers there were in poor repair with sticks propping up their dirty, tree sap covered awnings and all sorts of junk under and around them. The lake was nice but unfortunately the people there were frequently loud and swearing. The quiet time at night just didn't happen either, with loud conversations and laughter well after midnight. This park could be made into a really nice place some day, but for now I'll stay elsewhere.

Price reflects Passport America discount. This is a real gem of a park, with friendly and helpful owners and spacious and peaceful sites. We were escorted to our site and assisted with backing in. They even loaned us a power adapter to connect our camper to their 50 amp service. Cable TV and Wi-Fi worked fine. This was an overnight stop for us but with amenities like this we could easily spend more time here.

This park is simply beautiful! The sites are level and paved with fire rings and tables and the grounds are very well kept. The staff was very friendly and helpful in selecting a site for us to stay. There was a grey water dump in the area but the main dump station is a fair distance from the campground. The park also has a sandy beach on the river and frequent fishing tournaments begin there. The view of the river is breathtaking too, and it was hard to leave a view like that when time came to go.

This is a very nice, but somewhat secluded, campground. Sites are located in the woods and are gravel and mostly level with picnic tables and fire rings. Grey water dump stations are at various locations in the campground. Primitive hiking trails provide great views of the canyon and beautiful waterfalls. If you enjoy being away from it all then this is a great place to go. I'd give it a 10 if it had full hookups.

This is a nice park in a good location with friendly staff. The trolley runs through the park and is a handy way to get around town. Like most RV parks in town the sites were a little tight, and if the park was full it would feel pretty packed. Wi-Fi worked fine and was plenty fast. Our sewer hookup was in the back of the site and we had to buy an extension hose to reach it. We like this park and will be back again.

Rate shown is with a 7 day stay. This is a really nice park with shade trees and plenty of room to relax. The sites are big rig friendly, too. The 3 ponds are very peaceful with gazebos nearby to just sit and enjoy the day. The staff was very nice and helpful with getting us settled into our spot. We had to drive a short distance to the beach but it was worth it to have the peace and quiet at night. We'll definitely be coming back here again!

Rate was for a site with full hookups. Owner was friendly and extremely helpful. Gave us detailed information about the area and especially Shiloh Battlefield. Site was gravel and very level. Overall look and condition of the park was excellent. Cable TV was great and internet speed was good. Will definitely stay here again if in the area.

There are 2 campgrounds in this park, the original one along a beautiful and peaceful creek, and a newer one in the woods. Many of the spaces in the creek side campground are too small for a larger camper but the ambiance is much better there. There is nothing to see in the wooded area but trees and that gets old fast. Unfortunately, they close the creek side campground after the summer and the only choice is the woods. There are still a lot of pluses to this park though. There are biking and hiking trails and a nice swimming pool and peaceful lake. I'd give it a higher rating if they didn't close the creek side campground.

This state park is simply beautiful! It has miles of biking and hiking trails and an abundance of wildlife. Deer and squirrels are everywhere! There is a huge swimming pool that is open during the summer and it looks well maintained. The campground is a little old and could use some sprucing up, but it's still pretty nice and the view of the lake is great. We are not bothered by the sounds of the kids having a good time riding their bicycles and so forth and have never had any problems with noise after dark. Some of the spaces are a little tight backing into, but we haven't had any problems so far. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful too. We've been here several times and keep coming back. It's a great spot for a weekend getaway.

We picked this park because of the good reviews we'd read, but it does have some drawbacks worth mentioning. It's easy enough to find and get into, but getting out was always a problem. It's located right at the edge of Pigeon Forge and the traffic pouring into town made getting out on the road a challenge. Also, there was no left turn available so heading toward Gatlinburg meant making a U-turn, not an east thing to do with a camper. We stayed near the front of the park and the traffic noise was pretty bad there. The back of the park had no nice views though so it was a tradeoff. The WI-FI was pretty much unreliable at our camper, but walking closer to the bath house made it much better. The park staff was very friendly and helpful and that made up for some of the drawbacks. If we stay there again we'll definitely go to the back of the park away from the traffic noise.

This was our first trip to Joe Wheeler. It's a nice place with paved, but narrow, roads and campsites. There was just enough room on the site pavement to park our camper with none left for chairs, etc. A rainy day would have been a muddy mess for us. Some campers had to park their boats along the sides of the access roads and that made it crowded getting through at times. The camp helpers for our area patrolled the park like security guards to the point that we became annoyed with their frequent inspections. In the morning as we were packing to leave they stopped by urging us to hurry up because there were others wanting our spot! We'll probably go back again in spite of the drawbacks though. Sure hope the "camp helpers" we had are gone by then!

What a deal! No hassles, just a clean, nice spot with full hookups, including cable TV. This is the place to stay if you're in the area.

We paid $65 a night for a grassy, unlevel spot with no cable TV and unreliable wireless internet access. There is no way this qualifies as a "resort" and just barely qualifies as an RV park. It would be overpriced at half the cost. If you decide to go anyway, bring some 4x4's to level your camper. If you get the same site I was in you'll need them!
