As others have said, this park is immaculate and the sites are some of the largest/nicest I have seen in 6 years of full timing. Even though they label themselves as an "adult park", they DO allow kids here. There are just no amenities to entertain them. Also interesting that they have a special section for guests with pets. There are some negatives here. First, if you look at photos and see water lapping against the edge of the park: don't expect it. We have been here for 4 months and this part of the bay has had no water to speak of. I think they are doing some wetlands reclamation just to the north. Second, with the nearby highway I was expecting some noise, but not at the level that it is. Every morning starting around 5am, all the navy seals on their Ninjas and Harleys go blasting north to the base. It then continues with noisy bikes and cars throughout the day. If you are outside, sometimes you have to stop talking until they fade way. Third is the helicopter noise. This is from the training base nearby. This comes and goes, I guess depending on where they are in training, but it can go well into the night, even the wee hours. For a short stay all the noise can probably be overlooked, but for an extended stay it gets a little old. Why stay, you ask? Well, for prime season in San Diego, it is a nice park with huge sites and a good value. The rate quoted is based on their monthly rate for a premium site.

The daily rate reflects an extended stay of several weeks. The owners of this park a just a pleasure to deal with. They are extremely friendly and accommodating. You can tell they have taken great pride and care in building this park. The sites are huge, well graveled, nicely laid out and landscaped. The entire park is meticulously groomed, providing for pleasant views in all directions. It is one of the few parks where there is probably more open space than RV space. Being tucked away from the highway, it is extremely quiet. Though there are cattle on some adjoining land, neither odor or insects seem to be a problem. The campground is just minutes from the caverns, historic downtown and Wal-Mart. Luray also has a very nice walking path downtown just minutes away. The only negative that got in the way of 10 stars was the water pressure. I was only getting 20-30# of static pressure at my site. I didn't talk to any neighboring campers to see if they had the same experience.

This park is closer to the freeway than Baileyton RV Park and we had no trouble getting in with 40' MH and toad. They did have pull-through sites that could accommodate without disconnecting. Sites are gravel, well spaced with grass and young trees between. By the size of the trees it looks like a relatively new park. Our site was not very level due to where it was on the property, but most look acceptable. The owner (very nice) has built a very scenic fishing pond on the property, though the sites are not waterfront. There was some noise off a nearby road, but it quieted down later in the night (which was Saturday). Freeway noise did not seem an issue.

No review for this one in awhile, so thought I'd chime in. We stayed here because the price was right for a FL winter, and it was a last minute reservation. There were no dogs roaming free, no pet waste, and the management seems competent but somewhat aloof. There are just a handful of 50amp sites out of the 300. There seems to be some activities on a regular basis if you are so inclined, but we were not. Our main complaint is that the drainage in this park is very poor, so with big rains areas of it floods. We had water up to the bottom of our rims at times. A few of the 50amp sites are a bit higher - just don't be in the sites that back up to the drainage ditches!

Agree the roads are a bit tight, but I had no problems negotiating with my 40' MH - even back in area 5 which is all 40' sites but has a narrow curvy road. My site did not have a 50amp connection, but had two 30 amp circuits which I have never seen. Maybe if I had the right kind of pigtail I could have used both to give me full power, but it was no issue as the weather was mild. If you are looking for a satellite friendly site, #136 is your best bet. I was able to get on 101W for DirecTV and 105W for internet.

This is primarily a spacious, well-maintained mobile home community with some spaces converted for RVs. Very quiet. THERE ARE NO SHOWER/RESTROOMS! Sites are very spacious with concrete patios, either under large trees or some in the open for satellite access. Staff is very friendly. Rate is based on monthly rate. Just minutes from Stone Mountain park, and great rate for an extended stay.

Rate was with KOA Gold (15%). At first I was surprised they did not offer a weekly rate, but after staying there, not sure anyone would want to stay that long. Can you say N-O-I-S-E? Turns out the campground is right under the flight path of fighter jets training out of a Naval Air Station just a couple of miles away. It starts at 8am SHARP and seemed to regularly go to 9:30pm, but one night until almost midnight. I'd never go back for that reason alone.

We were happy with our stay. Not much shade, but that's the way we like it to get satellite reception. As someone said earlier, a lot of Canadians stay here, including in many seasonal sites, but I found the resident workers very friendly and accommodating. They also have cabins, but many of the sites (mostly grass) have only 30 amps, many with no sewer. Seems almost half the place is seasonal sites with various types of RVs setup permanently, but they are neat and in good repair. There is a bit of noise from the nearby freeway.

This park is 60% seasonals, giving it a cluttered look as most of the seasonal units stay in place and have a variety of outdoor living and storage arrangements. The park has grown over time and the sites are either grass, dirt or gravel and it overall has a rustic feel. The maze of roadways in the park are a little confusing, some with trees creating tight turns, and the map is not accurate. We had trouble navigating in our big rig and ended up getting a scratch on the side. It does have a lot to offer if you look at their web site, and the price is right. We chose a site with 30 amp/water only because it was in a spacious field that provided privacy and satellite reception.

We DID NOT stay here. We were looking for a place south of the Catskills that had open sites for satellite reception, and was reasonably priced (if you have Passport America, half price Sun-Thu). We just didn't like the looks of the place. It was run down and just looked junky as you pull up. Admittedly the playground looks nice and the pool looked clean. Once you drive past the office, the paved road turns into a rough gravel road that is almost just a two-track. Seems to be a lot of seasonal sites.

This campground has more space set aside for tenting than Rvs, but they are in separate areas. The campground is wedged between the river and an elevated highway, so there is some traffic noise, especially heavy trucks. The riverside sites would lessen this I suspect. The sites are mainly dirt, and when busy, rigs are pretty close. It is primarily wooded, so satellite reception is doubtful, though we were able to get DirecTV in site 114. They do have fast wireless internet, at least in the sites in front of the office, probably off their cable provider. The canoe/kayaking operation is very well run and makes the place pretty busy. If you are passing through and need a place to stay for a day or two, or wanting to take advantage of the river, an excellent choice. The staff is very friendly.

This park is decent, but a little rough around the edges. A lot of long-term renters. Many of the sites are shaded by low trees. Some are open giving satellite access. I told them what I needed when I reserved, and they did save me an open site. Sites are gravel with paved roads, some paved parking and grass between most sites. I would not hesitate to come again if I really needed a place to park (which I did this time because of the Memorial Day weekend). There are some train tracks nearby, so we will see how disturbing that is.

Only $10 with Passport America. This is a no-frills nightly stopover park just off I-10, far enough to not be noisy. All the sites are pull-thru with no need to disconnect. The sites are all gravel, nicely spaced with young trees. The parks are well behind a "saloon," gas station/convenience store, and cafe. There is also adjoining parking for truckers that I assume could also be used for overnight boondocking if you just need a place to park and sleep. Otherwise, not much else around.

Well kept park with mostly gravel, level sites. Some seem to have concrete pads for a patio area. There are shrubs, but no grass or shade trees. The pull-through sites still take a bit of maneuvering to get aligned, and there is not room to leave a toad connected.

This RV Park and Marina is located at the tip of a peninsula on Fern Ridge Lake. Used for flood control, the lake is normally only full Apr to Oct. Approximately 75% of the sites (and all waterfront sites) are permanent, but very neat and well kept. The sites are relatively level gravel with a small cement patio, storage shed and plenty of grass. The sites are spaced more widely apart than average. Some sites offer shade, some sun and are satellite friendly. There is a boat ramp, swimming area, and large grassy open areas.

If you like serenity and being in the woods, this is the campground for you! We stayed here in off season and during the week, and there was hardly anyone there. The lake is just minutes away along well-maintained hiking trails, though in the northern park (where w/e hookups are) there isn't a beach for swimming. The south area has a nice day area with a beach. A dump station is conveniently located at the entrance to the northern campground. We were able to negotiate the northern area with a 40-foot rig and toad. Don't try it in the south, however. Roads are tight, rough, with very sharp curves. The restrooms were very clean, hot showers 50 cents for 3 minutes. The only problem we had was one leg of our 50amp circuit was not hot and they didn't seem to know how to fix it. There is a small convenience store, cafe and bar nearby, but not much else.

I can agree that the owners are VERY friendly and helpful. The lower sites have grass and trees, while the upper, newer sites were gravel. Getting in and out with a 40-foot rig and toad was no problem, regardless of earlier comments of tight corners. The park is very convenient to Coulee Dam and the overlook.
