We stayed 3 weeks in this campground and overall enjoyed the park and the folks staying at it. Located conveniently in Ft. Collins, we enjoyed the amenities and the site's themselves were treed, grassy and spacious. Sites were paved and some had extended patios. The pool area was well maintained and they offered many activities for families. The only issue I could see is that although the work campers were busy and helpful, none of them could figure out how to use their reservation system. Even if you told them that you were willing to move sites. For example: If you wanted to spend 3 weeks, there would have to be 1 actual site that was open for those exact dates or they would tell you that they could not accommodate you. We ended up using the online reservation system since they could not figure it out.
This park has GREAT Wi-Fi!! We stayed 2 weeks in this park and loved the convenient location to Golden and surrounding areas. The park itself is very busy, sites are tight and most are not landscaped well. H3 is sloped and muddy when it rains. There is also a tree on this site that blocked our roof mount satellite, so we had to get out the portable. It was difficult to pull out of this site with our 40' RV due to the sharp angle, tree & shrubs. I would recommend this campground for a short stay on your way somewhere else.
This is an older campground with not too many level sites for a 40' rig. We moved twice & eventually got level, but only with a whole bunch of blocks. It rained a lot during our stay, so the lake was way up and our campsite was a pond in itself. Very serene campground with very nice bike/hiking trails if the weather would have been nicer. Dump station and bath house were convenient to the camping area. Close to town for shopping.
Stayed two weeks in this lovely campground. Huge, level sites with fire pit & picnic table. We camped in site 4, which could have fit at least another rig in it and boasted 180 degrees of lake view. Loved the remote feeling of this campground. Very well maintained. Only wish the dump station was more convenient or they had full hook-ups. Otherwise, a really wonderful place to camp, fish, etc.
About 2 blocks from the beach, this campground is OK, but not really a $60/night sort of location. Our site was not paved or gravel, just weeds that should have been mowed a week prior. Sites are close. Approx. 10-20 ft. between each site. Picnic table at each site, but no fire ring. Lots of trash dumpsters located in convenient spots throughout the park, but no recycling facility. Our site had no trees, so satellite was not an issue. They have a very large pool area, but unfortunately it was too cold and rainy during our stay to enjoy it. We have Passport America; however, it was not accepted. I never really understood why, but I assume we stayed during a time period they were not accepting it.
Santos has great bike trails for FL and this campground is the most convenient to the trail head. Sites are spaced out and offer fire ring & picnic table. Some of the sites are treed too heavily for satellite to work easily or to put out your awnings. Water & electric at each site with dump station across from trash area. Lots of bikers come in on the weekend and the convenience station gets trashed and not cleaned until Monday afternoon. Some traffic noise from 441 and also a nearby train track.
Camped in site 22, a large pull through site with trees, fire ring & picnic table. Sites are spread out for privacy. Bike trails are some of the best for FL. Equestrian facilities and accommodations are significant at this park. Reserve America does not include all the sites at this park, so if you can't reserve on-line you have good chances to get in if you call the park directly. About 10 miles to grocery. etc.
We stayed on the park side right in front of the shuffleboard area, taking up 2 spots. We enjoyed our stay over spring break week. The beach and access was fantastic, and the location of the park to restaurants etc. was easily within walking distance. The park itself is older, well maintained, tight as you could possibly imagine & hosted some of the nicest folks you can find anywhere. Pricey, but as in all real estate…location – location – location. Thanks Red Coconut for making us feel welcomed.
This is our second & final stay. I have all sorts of things to say about this campground; however, the most fascinating thing I can enlighten you & perhaps management on: We called the front desk because the travel lite parked next to our site inhabits full-time 5 people & 10-20 dogs (can't tell exactly how many as many look a lot alike & they only let 10 max out at a time in their makeshift fencing). The front desk receptionist informed us that this is perfectly allowed and hung up on us…Holy cow!! If only she could see, HEAR & SMELL what we are experiencing for $50/night!
Older, well maintained campground with fairly tight full hook-up sites containing a very nice concrete pad & picnic table. Campground offers on site restaurant, pool, shuffle board, horse shoes and many planned activities. Bath house was very clean and updated. There are many full-time and seasonal residents who have created a family community feeling. Wif-F was difficult to use & connect to. We enjoyed our week long stay and would return again. Nothing fancy, just comfortable!
Very well maintained RV resort in Ft. Myers Beach. Sites are spacious and individually landscaped/decorated by the owner of the site. Park offers lots of planned activities, pool, club house, tiki bar, Wi-Fi, etc. Trolley to the beach pick-up and drop off location is just around the corner, if you don't want to drive the 5 miles and pay to park. Sites along Pine Ridge will endure heavy traffic noise. We enjoyed our 10 day stay and would highly recommend.
Class A only park, located right off 41 in south Naples. Entrance to the park is not well marked, and the location of the entrance is in a high traffic, 55mph blind spot, so be very careful. There are accidents frequently. Be prepared to hear emergency vehicles consistently. If you are sensitive to noise, request a site towards the back of the park, as the traffic noise from 41 is very loud 24x7. Convenient to Marco Island and a multitude of stores/shopping. Park offers full hook-up, paved sites with approximately 6 feet between rigs. Limited landscaping, but very well maintained. Clubhouse, 3 pools and spas, tennis court, fitness room and lots of planned activities throughout the winter season. The park allows outside vendors for RV repair, washing, waxing and even mobile dog washing. Additionally, they provide curb side trash pickup, daily complimentary continental breakfast, a weekly free poolside cocktail/appetizer mixer with live music as well as a weekly free happy hour meet & greet with a smorgasbord of appetizers. Wi-Fi in the park is virtually unusable most of the time. I found 1-4AM the exception, if you don't have an alternative data plan.
No full-hookup available and the sites are very tight. We hit several trees maneuvering to, into and out of our site. They really need to clean up the trees if they are going to allow 40' RV's to make reservations. Otherwise, great private feeling sites with fire ring & picnic table. They sell firewood at a reasonable price at the ranger station.
Large full-hook up sites available. Fire ring & picnic table at each site. Cell service is poor; however, with a booster it was usable. New bath houses, tons of paved & unpaved trails for biking or hiking. A little far out of Sarasota, but really the best choice to camp in the area.
I really appreciated other reviews about the traffic noise at this park, so we made an effort to choose a site that might not be quite as affected, and I think it worked out as we rarely noticed the noise. Wide open campground with brand new bath houses and large, well thought out sites. Lots of walking/biking trails throughout the park. We also rented a couple of kayaks and paddled up the river. Lots to do and close to both Jupiter and Stuart for any shopping or dining etc. We enjoyed site 42, level back-in gravel site with fire ring and full hookup.
Holy smokes! This is an amazing campground. We were placed in site 64: pull in, paved with tiki, private dock and an incredible view of the water from our windshield. Hanging out in our campsite was our favorite part of the entire trip. We had the neighbors over for an outdoor crab boil, other neighbors and the management brought over fresh caught fish twice. The management staff are very attentive and knowledgeable about nearly everything Florida Keys oriented. After being on the road full-time for 11 months and moving at least once per week, this experience was by far our favorite and easiest to justify the nightly rate.
We spent one night only as the surrounding cities have a no overnight parking ordinance in force. There are lots of amenities at this park and the staff seems very friendly. Our site was gravel, tight and located next to a very busy golf cart/bicycle path. My dog and I were nearly run over 3 times during our short stay and I witnessed several other near incidents due to the fact our rig and tow were creating a rather large blind spot. Normally, I would have found a park like this to be ok, but with the $60/night price tag I was extremely disappointed with the small stuff. The Wi-Fi was only usable at 6AM for me. I was up at 6AM because of some large creatures (bulls, camels, oxen, who knows?) make god awful noises. Otherwise, I was not even able to connect to the Wi-Fi. My husband did utilize the fitness facility and thought it was pretty nice. There are a lot of park models and I would assume many folks staying at this park all winter, which might make sense. For an overnight stay in the Sarasota area, I would look elsewhere.
Confused about other reviews of this campground as our experience is very different. I must preface that we did not purchase our RV from Lazy Days nor did we have any service done during our stay, which may attribute to our experience. We chose this campground due to very positive reviews and closeness to family in the area, but would not return. We were placed next to the highway and have endured 24/7 major traffic noise. To the extent that we run our fans constantly to attempt to drown out the noise while working/sleeping etc… A coach next to us for several days actually went so far to run their generator all the time, but we did not feel it was appropriate to do so. Wi-Fi is unusable and should not be considered as an amenity. Sites are extremely close together and so short that your tow vehicle is in the street. Each site is full hook-up and offers a picnic table. There is a nice pool/hot tub/tennis/ball court and sometimes they open the cutest little pub. The sales and service area is extensive along with other conveniences (Flying J, Camping World) on site. And if your idea of the perfect campground is the closeness of a Cracker Barrel, well here you go. Perhaps that is the consideration they were identifying with when they stated this campground will make all your RV dreams come true!
Loved this campground! The closeness to the beach is fantastic and it is so well maintained by really friendly work campers. Our site was a little strangely angled so that our 40' rig fit so tightly that we could just only open the door. There was no room to open the door and go around it, but rather you had to get on into the site then open the door. The strange part, was that bubbled inside the site was enough room for 2 enormous tent families to live in addition to the fire ring & picnic table. There are no sewer hookup's but the dump station was very conveniently located and set up very easy to navigate. Terrific location to Destin area activities and directly across the street from a Walmart Super center.
This was our second stay at Topsail and this time, our site was not as nice. We were butted up to a retention lake and surrounded by thorn bushes. The site was paved, but roots had really created serious issues in the pad. The site was full hook-up and would have been better for enjoying the outdoors had the thorn bushes not been so intrusive. The location is just off Hwy 98 & 30-A with tons of conveniences nearby. Of the state parks in the area, this campground offers the most amenities and is usually the easiest to get into.
Beautiful quaint campground very close to the beach. We stayed in the newer loop. Some sites were concrete; however, ours was very deep gravel that sunk immediately. This was our only complaint that it was very difficult to level our coach and after more settling, leveling multiple times with rather poor results. The site was large with fire ring, picnic table & view of a lake. Full hook-up, extremely well kept campground with very nice amenities. Tremendous location on Hwy 30-A. Highly recommend this campground if you are fortunate enough to get in…
Great owners! We stayed here during Bike, Blues & BBQ ($500/site during the event), but stayed on afterwards for a week with full-hookup for $23/night. Basic gravel parking lot of a campground with not much going on for it. Bring a raised fire ring if you wish to have a fire. Convenient location, but in an industrial area.
When we checked in, we were told not to complain because they were booked to capacity and there was nothing they could do even if they wanted to. We understood. We backed into our site (which was smaller than our 40' coach) to the point we were literally hanging over the cliff on the back end. The front of our rig was a few inches into the narrow street and our front door was in the street. We parked our tow in the grass even though it was forbidden since there was absolutely no where else to put it. Then we started leveling. We have been on the road full-time for 10 months and have stayed in over 70 campgrounds and this was the first time that, in order to level our rig, we had to go to Lowe's and purchase more wood blocks. We had the front end up as high as it could go, even our bottom step were up on blocks so we didn't break our legs getting out. The result of being up so high was instability. With every move we made in the coach, it vibrated inside. Now, for the worst part, the traffic noise!! We have only encountered this level of constant traffic noise twice, and both times we were actually on the side of the highway. Bring your ear plugs and assume that the best part of your stay in Asheville will not be at this campground. They do offer Wi-Fi, which was OK for light browsing. They have cable and full-hookup sites. Campfires are prohibited. It was pricey considering the comfort of this stay, the traffic noise, the unlevel sites, the curvy narrow roads with high traffic volume, and the unhappy staff.
Fantastic first come, first serve campground (after October 15). Beautifully treed and spacious spots are relatively level and paved, plus each site offers great fire ring area. Tremendous hiking and mountain biking opportunities in the park. Sites vary from no utilities to full hookups. There is no cell service; no AT&T, Verizon or Sprint voice or data service…
Campground is laid out to fit the most RVs as possible. Sites are very close together, but surprisingly offer fire ring and picnic table at each. Each site is paved and they are serious about keeping the campground in the best possible shape at all times. The family and workers are very nice and stay constantly busy. Wi-Fi worked well; however, within a minute of non-usage the system logs you off and you are required to log in again each time. Close proximity to downtown Gatlinburg and across the street is a nice grocery store, gas station and liquor store. This campground is perfect if you are looking for a quiet experience.
WOW – this is the WORST campground we have encountered this year. We have been traveling full-time since January and this is the first time that we were really uncomfortable. Don't get me wrong, the campground offers full hook up at the steep price of $44/night and they do have the typical KOA amenities; however, the NOISE is RIDICULOUS!! Our site was on the side of 90HWY and even with both A/C units on during the day, the noise was so distracting. We work full-time from our RV and thank god for Bose headsets that restrict background noise. On top of the highway noise you also get the military plane noise to replace the monotony of diesel air brakes throughout the day. WiFi is unusable even when there is no one else in the campground and with a booster. The staff is very nice and really they must be saints to work camp here. There is a pool, but you are not allowed to have a beer at the pool so we never utilized it. In my journal, I have written the words "I HATE THIS CAMPGROUND" each day we have been here. This is a first and hopefully a last. Looking forward to leaving…
Deer Park is a very well laid out campground surrounded by trees and wildlife. Great Wi-Fi, spacious & level site with picnic table. There is no fire ring. Staff is very friendly, helpful and maintains the grounds all day long. The 2 dozen wild turkey are cool to watch initially; however, they leave a lot of droppings and will stalk you if grilling outside. They can be a little aggressive for food and started to creep us out when they got serious about getting a taste of the buffalo burgers we were grilling. I did not realize turkey's liked buffalo??? Anyway, we enjoyed our stay and even got to dip in the pool several times during our stay. We paid $38.50/night for full-hook up. Not sure how others are getting $25/night as we were not able to haggle that one out.
Sites are tight for larger rigs. Full hook-up sites do come with a concrete pad with actual outdoor table & chairs. Each site does have a fire ring; however, we were not allowed to use it during our stay due to dry weather. 30amp service or you can pay additional money for 50amp. We arrived 30 minutes prior to check-in and were not received well. The front desk attendant actually told me that I was way too early. I requested she point me to a location that we could park until our site was available. She proceeded to huff and puff, pointing her finger at me and telling me to just hold on. She spent several minutes speaking to someone on a two way. Later when I realized where our site was, she could have easily looked out the window to see if the site was occupied. Anyway, it was not occupied and we were allowed to park our rig (now only 15 minutes early). For sure not a welcoming feeling. We initially chose this KOA because it offered a pool. We did not realize that it was an indoor pool. Probably fine for children; however, I could not handle the chlorine aroma and prefer to be in the sun if at all possible during the summer. Not horrible, but not great for the steep $45/night with KOA membership.
Average campground. Staff is very accommodating and maintains the park very well. Sites are tight for larger rigs, but do offer full-hook up and picnic table. The pool area is nice; however, be prepared to deal with A LOT of children from Bozeman. The park is landscaped well and the office sells basic provisions. Satellite reception was good, Wi-Fi was reliable for the most part; Sprint, Verizon & AT&T worked also. My biggest complaint: there is a large population of black billed Magpies hanging out in the campground, and they are nearly as annoying as the train going by all of the time.
Could not find a full hook-up site to fit our rig. Could not get satellite service and only 1 channel via antenna. No cable, wi-fi was unusable, and our Sprint & Verizon were very, very slow, our AT&T was out of service due to unrelated circumstances. We ended up leaving our RV and going into Seattle for a couple of days and then cut our stay in half and moved on due to the poor connectivity. If you don't have to work and do not require connectivity and don't really care about television, then the park is very treed and serene. There is a nice walk along the Puget Sound, and the location is very convenient to La Conner & Anacortes.
… Crown Point RV Park is small, quiet and maintained well. We utilized our Passport America discount. For $15/night, full-hook, great wifi and convenient location to the Columbia Gorge & Hood River areas as well as Portland. Traffic noise can be loud at times, but otherwise we were pleased with our stay.
Not the biggest fan of how Thousand Trails operates their campgrounds. This park will take a reservation and ensure full-hook up; however, when we arrived, it took us over an hour to find a site large enough for our 40' motor coach. Of course it was not full-hook up. The site is ok, but a little small and we had to acquire a fire ring from a neighboring site. Cable is fuzzy and we could not get satellite to work in the trees; however, we did not take the time to mess around with the portable satellite as we only stayed 4 nights. Great view of the Pacific ocean from our site and dump station is convenient to our site – C9. No wifi in park and we did not attempt it at the lounge. AT&T and Verizon worked pretty good with the booster. Deeded access to the beach from the park. Pick up some firewood along the way as the campground sells a small bundle of fairly green cedar for $8. Loved feeding the bunnies that inhabit the park. They will literally run up to you for a carrot. Needless to say, I went through a lot of carrots while walking through the park.
We LOVED Honey Bear Campground. The park is beautiful with lots of trees, flowers and large spacious grassy sites. The restaurant, camp store, deli and check-in looks exactly like the house Hansel & Gretel would live in. So German, black forest cute! You MUST purchase lots of deli goods. The black forest ham, white sausage brats & pepper sticks are the best I have ever eaten. This includes my many trips to Germany. We were not fortunate enough to dine at the restaurant during our stay, but I know we missed something delicious. We had a light view of the Pacific Ocean and enjoyed the deeded beach access to the ocean. We enjoyed a pull-through, full-hook up site. The Wi-Fi was very spotty.
Great Wi-Fi and cable TV, in a parking lot of a campground where the majority of the patrons are either full-time or staying for many months at a time. Crescent City offers many RV parks and most seem similar to this one, but perhaps the location across the street from the harbor here will reduce some of the wind. The campground is maintained well and everything seemed clean in the laundry. Good Harvest Cafeé is just next door and offers a great lunch/dinner. Infinity spa & salon is also just next door and offers full salon services as well as massage. Very convenient to all the Redwoods has to offer and just across the street from the harbor.
Thousand Trails in Bend, OR is located in between Sunriver & La Pine. The park offers heavily treed large spacious sites with privacy all around. Each site provides a fire ring & picnic table. All sites have water & 30 amp service; however, none offer full-hook up. There are 2 dump stations along many convenience stations, laundry, market, coffee wagon, dining hall, 2 pools and various outdoor activities such as pickle ball, horse shoes etc… The park is well-maintained and I would highly recommend if staying in the Bend, Cascade Lakes area. We stayed in site H11 for 11 days and enjoyed it immensely. If they had full-hook up and Wi-Fi at your site, I would give the park a 10.
Gorgeous forest to call home for a couple of nights. Sites are relatively small for a 40' motor coach, so even though we had a pull through site, we still had to back out and into another site to make it around the sharp corner and various trees. $27/night is a little steep for no hook-up at all; however, it was fantastic living in the trees and so close to Crater Lake and all the park has to offer. Each site offers a fire ring, picnic table and bear box. We did not utilize the convenience stations during our stay. Bring your own firewood or an ax as the store sells small bundles for just under $7.
River's Edge RV Park is OK. Sites are close together and many of the them are occupied by full-timers working in the area. The park is at the base of a dam. We were informed that the park had new owners and they were in the process of cleaning up the park and it's landscaping. They do have several very nice cabins to rent, fly fishing tours right from the park, a little playground and the creek does run through the property at the back. We were parked in site 2, full-hookup, fire ring and a little tree that surrounded our bedroom slide. Would look for a different park in the future.
There are not very many large RV sites; however, if you find one, this is a very peaceful setting when portable generators are off. This is a dry campground and if you are aware of this, you should be pleased with the location. Lots of wildlife and trails right from the campground.
Passport America: $20/night, nice clean campground right off the highway. Highway noise is significant; however, your air conditioners are running all the time to combat the 100 degree heat, so they really drown out a lot of the noise. Dog park is really just sand with a baggie kiosk. Sites have a tree and some grass, just don't let the staff catch your dog relieving itself on said grass. You will get screamed at. Wi-Fi was pretty good along with cable TV. Antenna also picked up a ton of local channels.
Lightner Creek Campground is located in an idyllic location in Durango, CO. Lightner Creek runs through the campground creating a beautiful backdrop for many of the camp sites. I would recommend this campground for smaller rv's or tent camping; however, they have only a few sites that they allocate for larger rigs and they are almost touching one another with slides out. We were unfortunate to be placed in site 68, which is back in site located next to a dirt hill. We were jammed in there so tight, that we actually had to come out the door, step to the side, close the door and then climb over a dirt mound to exit our rig. Additionally, we were only separated from the bath house by a short fence that provided privacy if you were sitting down outside, but not from inside your RV. Our RV has an outdoor entertainment center that is located on the passenger side. Because site 68 boxed us into a cave, we did not spend one evening outside and that is a true shame in beautiful Durango. Sites 67 & 66 pull in front wise so that you can enjoy Lightner Creek and I would recommend requesting either of those sites if you would like to be outside. We would have moved to either of those sites if we were not told that they were booked fully and actually got the last site they had available. This irked us as each of the sites only had a rig staying in it 1 night each. Oh well, hopefully you will have better luck. The campground is 50% populated by camp workers who are constantly cleaning and maintain the park beautifully. There is a convenient dog park and several bath houses which we did not utilize. The camp store was well stocked and the pool was a perfect temperature. I will add that the pool situation was strange in that they do not provide a single chair or lounger around the deck. I hauled my own lounge chair up to the pool one day and enjoyed a book and solitude. I never saw anyone else ever utilize the pool, but the work campers cleaned it everyday and covered it every evening. The campground is very quiet and would be perfect for someone who does not wish to socialize. The wifi was intermittent and worked very well at some points and not at all at others. This was our first visit to Durango and will probably give another campground a try when we visit again.
Carlsbad KOA is a very well run campground and maintained impeccably by a friendly staff. The BBQ dinners are a must during your stay. We enjoyed ribs, brisket, pulled pork and sausages that were all excellent. Be warned the twice baked potato is one of those frozen microwave jobs without the skin of a real potato. Otherwise, very convenient and delicious dinner. We enjoyed the pool and the dog park, but did not spend much time outside otherwise and it was very windy, dry and hot during our stay. The majority of the park is inhabited with full-time oil workers and their families. They get up very early for work, otherwise, they keep to themselves. Wi-Fi was okay. The park was filled with cute little ground squirrels and rabbits, but we were warned that these cute little critters chewed multiple holes in our sewer hose. The cavern's were about 45 minutes from the campground and were the highlight of our stay in the Carlsbad area.
Alamo KOA in San Antonio exceeded our expectations based on some reviews. The staff was extremely friendly and allowed us an 8AM early check-in so that we could attend a webinar for work. Not only did they allow the early check-in, but were prepared for our arrival and made fast business of check-in so we could make the meeting. On the way to the site, we filled up on propane and were driven to our site via golf cart. Our site was a pull through, full-hook up site. The free Wi-Fi was usable, the site was treed and offered a picnic table on a paver patio and a grill. We only stayed 2 nights; however, we enjoyed the pool the public bus transportation to the Riverwalk and the quiet well maintained campground. (Beware on the bus, it is $1.10/person, but the folks riding this bus might make you a bit nervous. Don't wear a bunch of jewelry or carry a fancy camera etc…) Divided by only a rope fence there is a paved walking/biking path that goes for miles. They have a little store on site where I purchased a cowboy hat, but we did not utilize the convenience station, Chuck Wagon breakfast or made to order pizza during our stay. Would highly recommend if staying in the San Antonio area.
We stayed here for 6 nights in site 1, which was a pull through, full-hook up 30 amp site. Picnic tables and fire ring are at each site. Beware of the wood they sell as it is very green and nearly impossible to light without a map gas torch. Lots of trees, but not so much that you can't utilize satellite and with our antenna, we got 47 channels out of Houston. The campground hosts were not a picnic; however, they were not mean either. I think they just had no happiness in their lives. We got good connectivity with Verizon, AT&T and Sprint. This park has nice walking trails and is well kept. The best part of the park were the deer, bunnies and butterflies everywhere.
We stayed at Bayou Segnette State Park just outside of New Orleans for only one night. We did not have a reservation; however, they had one spot large enough for our motor coach. It was located next to the convenience station and allowed us several inches of breathing room with our slides out and the RV parked next to us. Most of the other sites were large and more private. This is a large park filled with tons of Jack Rabbits and Armadillos. There were many activities at this park that we did not enjoy, but it did offer many amenities as well as the convenient location to New Orleans. The laundry is FREE!
Chehaw State Park is the highlight of Albany, GA. The campground is undergoing upgrades and improving accommodations for larger rigs. The Native American Festival was held the weekend of 14-15 and the check-in process was sort of ridiculous; however, I understand it was probably one of their busiest times. The staff is not familiar with the campground and we were told we would only have 30 amp service in site 19. Luckily, we were greeted by the nicest campground hosts who expertly guided us into the very tight site 19 (which is 50 amp) for our first few nights. Later, we moved to site 4, which is full-hookup. The campground is heavily treed and very serene. Lots of biking/hiking trails, activities and the zoo was fantastic! Wi-Fi was terrific and there is a fire ring at every site. We did not utilize the convenience station. $20/night for electric & water; $28/night for full-hookup.
We stayed here in April at $35.80/night with Good Sam. Oak Plantation is a very nice, big rig friendly campground. The staff is very efficient and accommodating. We stayed in site D4, which is a nice pull-through, full hook up site positioned directly across from the cabins. There are no trees on this site and the gravel is very small, making your chairs etc., sink. We did not utilize the two convenience station’s; however, I did peak in and they were clean but older. The Wi-Fi was intermittent at best even with our booster. No cable TV was offered and we had to pay nightly for a fire ring. The fishing pond is inhabited by alligators and there are no trails, just the roadways around the campground. Overall, this is a convenient location in Charleston and we enjoyed our stay.
Paid $43.28/night with Good Sam - James Island Park offers a wide variety of activities for the whole family. We stayed March 31 – April 7th in site 120 – full hook up, camping in a motor coach. The campground was well laid out and offered a little green space between each site, along with a fire ring. There are many biking and walking trails throughout the park and the dog park was extremely nice. April 1st, the park hosted the Low country Cajun Festival and we enjoyed the food, drink & music just a quick walk away from our coach. For the price, this was not our favorite campground as it offered no cable. The Wi-Fi was unusable (and we have a Wi-Fi ranger, Wi-Fi booster that connected to their router at 100%) and each site was covered in road pack. We had a rally heavy rain, making this one of the messiest sites we have ever encountered. Make sure to have your bug spray handy. Especially if it rains as the road ways and sites hold water for days.
Our stay at Skidaway Island State Park was amazing. The park is so beautiful! Heavily treed with live oaks dripping with Spanish moss and inhabited by lots of squirrels. The camping slips were large and spread out. There are some slips with 50 amp service and all have water, cable and fire ring; however, none are full hook up. This was our first experience with a dump station. It was centrally located and easy to use. We purchased a honey wagon for this 2 week stay and it offered a lot of convenience for not moving our 40’ motor coach. I had read a few reviews that this campground was not big rig friendly, and I disagree. The roadways were well laid out and nicely maintained. The only thing I would mention is the loop we stayed in (the first loop) did not indicate a direction and frequently rigs came head to head and one would have to back up. We stayed in slip 5. We did not utilize the convenience stations, although we did look at the first two and they were clean but older. They are in the process of building a third convenience station in camping area 4. The trails were great for hiking and biking and in addition, there is a paved path virtually around the entire island. Bring your bug spray and enjoy this outdoor haven.
Weekly rate reflects Passport America. Very quiet campground with many diverse locations throughout the park. We stayed in the Preserve in a motor coach and enjoyed meeting many terrific folks who have created fantastic entertaining areas on their purchased lots. The rental lots have little to no landscaping; however, they all have cement pads and full hook up. Very nice amenities: (club house, pool, spa, river access, greenbelt trail access etc.,) and very well maintained. Our only negative comment would be the inconsistency of the Wi-Fi. Verizon worked well, AT&T ok and Sprint was very poor. Overall, a wonderful campground for the PA rate!
Beautiful state park! Very clean and well planned/maintained. Had "Breakfast with the Ranger" A volunteer money raising event for the park and learned a lot about controlled burns, gopher turtles and so much more. Great paved walking/running/biking paths, fishing ponds and even trolley rides.
