This is one of three massive camping/vacation resorts located on the beach just South of Myrtle Beach International airport. Sites are clean, level, and of a fairly roomy size, but also close together with virtually no shade. The picnic tables are pretty weatherbeaten. We've seen far worse. There are several snack bars with seasonally-variable hours, a game arcade, auditorium, a good-sized swimming pool complex and several other amenities. Check-in staff was pleasant and efficient. The interior roadways are passable if not wide. Generally the place was fairly peaceful, considering the number of people. Our spot was about seven spaces back from the dune and the surf sound was only occasionally drowned out by people. Impromptu evening beach fireworks are fairly common, but weren't bothersome during our stay. There are a lot of golf carts but this is a large, spread-out place. We experienced only careful, courteous drivers. Only electric golf carts are allowed according to resort rules, which keeps the noise down. Wi-Fi was very good at our site. There are no grills or fire rings supplied, but you may bring your own. One nice touch: You're given a trash bag at check-in. When they pick up the filled bag from your site they give you a new one. We'd stay here again. It was a nice place to relax and do nothing for a few days.
Rate is with 10% KOA card discount. This was an overnight stop. One of the better KOAs. Level, shady sand spaces. Well-kept. Tengo Wi-Fi. Railroad a few hundred yards across the highway, but only a few trains at night, noise was not too bad. Pretty fishing lake with lots of ducks, geese and swans. Rowboat rentals. Friendly staff. Would stay here again.
A decent overnight stop. Staff was VERY helpful and pleasant. They'll loan you a power extension if needed. Lots of families camping here for the weekend, but I was an over nighter passing through. No shade, but nice views of the hills. Roads are gravel but decently maintained. Same for sites. Sloping ground means some leveling usually needed, but not extreme. I'd stay here again.
This is a semi-residential park with a section for travelers. Paved access lanes, reasonably spacious level gravel/dirt sites set up on a "buddy system" with utilities between two sites. Well-kept grass and trees with some shade. Right next to a major highway but has an effective sound wall. Staff is pleasant, but not outstanding. I'd stay here again.
Dusty, rough access lanes. Sites not quite level due to poor maintenance. So-so Wi-Fi. Except for one very nice lady (perhaps an owner) the staff looks and acts like they really would rather be someplace else. I didn't try the pool, but it got a lot of happy activity, so I'll assume that it's well-maintained. This is mostly an OK overnight stop, but not much more than that. I'd stay here again if I needed to.
Rate is Passport America. Overnight stop only this time. A nice little park in a country setting with a beautiful view of the hills. Clean, with nicely landscaped sites. Very nice staff. Didn't use the Wi-Fi. This was a great overnight rest stop after a long day's drive. If I visit the area again and need to stay longer I'll definitely stay here.
Rate is Good Sam. Good things first: The park is very clean and facilities are modern. It's surprisingly quiet in spite of being on a busy street. There are lots of trees surrounding the park, and the between-site trees and shrubs are nicely done. It's about as convenient to Everett and Seattle as you'll find. The rate is on a par for the area. The staff was pleasant enough. The Wi-Fi worked reasonably well except some evenings when it bogged down. The bad: CRAMPED. WIthout a doubt the smallest sites of any campground I've ever seen. The property really isn't big enough for more than 2/3 the number of sites they've crammed in here. The spacious (their claim) back-in assigned to my 30 foot single-slide RV was barely long enough. With my slide right up against the electric stand there was barely enough room to park my tow vehicle. Space between sites is measured in inches. The laundry is tiny. Sites ar far from level, most requiring 4-5 inches of leveling blocks on one side. It's several miles drive to a decent supermarket or shopping center. Everett is an aircraft town, so be prepared for airplane noise from nearby Paine Field, but only during the day. As a pilot, I happen to love it, but be forewarned. I'd stay here again, but only as a last resort.
The best location if you're riding the train. Less than half a mile walk to the station, and the tracks cross the river on a bridge right behind the campground. Some sites look moderately roomy, but many are bunched together and are narrow for our 30 foot trailer with one slide. Site was level, well-packed gravel. Access roads are well-packed gravel, but are narrow. Women's restroom / shower was closed for renovation. Lots of shade (those trees, again) and access to the river shoreline. Great staff. Would stay here again.
Aside from being the most convenient campground for visiting Mesa Verde there is little to recommend here. Access roads are narrow, rough and steep with low overhanging trees making back-ins a chore. No AT&T cell service or Verizon MiFi data service anwhere nearby. Some sites look roomy, but many are tight - not because of nearby neighbors but because of trees. The camp store Wi-Fi was unusable. One person I spoke to there had spent the entire day trying to download a mere 70 Megabyte file. After 8 hours he finally gave up. Camp store is passable, but not well stocked. I would not stay here again. Unfortunately that means I will not return to Mesa Verde as there are no better choices.
Rate is net including taxes. Considering the Durango market, the price is not out of line, but it's no bargain either. A beautiful park right on the Animas River. A little farther out of town than others, but worth the extra miles for the peace and beauty of the place. Staff was outstanding: Friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient. Well-stocked store and gift shop. Didn't try the pool, but it looked nice. Sites and access lanes are gravel, fairly roomy, and our site was fairly but not completely level. This is the highest rating I'll give a campground without fully paved pads and roads, so four stars is in no way a complaint. It's probably the only place I'd stay the next time I'm in Durango.
Rate is Good Sam. Clean, level gravel sites. Wide access lanes. Friendly staff. Internet access is Tengo, but it was off more than it was on for most of my two-day stay. A word here about paid Internet: At this low a basic rate for full hookups, I don't mind paying a couple of bucks a day for Internet service. Major shopping center about 3 miles away. Convenient to I-40, but highway noise was subdued. I will be staying here again. I reserve my 9-10 ratings for full-featured destination resorts, but as a transient park this is a great place.
A better-than-average KOA. It is roomy with fairly level gravel sites. I was a late-arrival, early-departure overnighter. The late-arrival materials they provide are better than many I've seen. There is a railroad nearby, which wasn't too bad. The campground is right up against the airport, but it also wasn't too bad. (Disclaimer: It's hard for me to judge this, because I'm a pilot and airplane noise is like music to me). I'd stay here again.
OK for a day or two, or if you have business in the area, but certainly not a vacation spot. 50 amp electric only, so bring an adapter for 30 amp. Riverside location is pretty, but there is constant noise from the adjacent highway bridge. City boat launch next door. Level gravel spots with shared hookup islands. Not cramped, but not spacious. No significant shade. Convenient walk across a pedestrian bridge to the Clinton Presidential Library and the River Market, but everything in Little Rock pretty much closes down on Sundays.
Rate is Good Sam. Doesn't take credit cards. Friendly. Well maintained, graveled, shady sites in a hillside. Some noise from the nearby highway. Major shopping center a mile away, but walking to it is dangerous as there are no sidewalks and the heavily-traveled two-lane road has no shoulder (drops away into a deep ditch) in places. Campground is uniquely decorated with a wide variety of bird houses and feeders everywhere. Would definitely come back again.
OK for an overnight stop. Friendly. Cash or check only - no credit cards. Lots of motorcycle noise from the highway, but it stopped by 10PM. Lots of helicopter noise during the day from nearby army air field, but also quiet at night. Decent place to sleep, dump your tanks, and move on.
Waterfront sites are actually on Grand Lagoon, not the Gulf (ocean) side of the peninsula. (RV Park Reviews doesn't offer a more appropriate choice on their review form.) Some of the waterfront sites have a tiny beach, others only swamp or rocks. It's still beautiful on the lagoon, but don't expect to surf up to your campsite. Other cautions: Most of the sites are sand (there are some paved pads) which can be very soft and loose. The access roads in the Western (Pine Grove) section are narrow and tree-lined. Maneuvering can be tricky, but isn't a problem for the careful. Big rigs have a limited selection of sites. In the off-season this park is wonderfully peaceful. Watch redfish jumping, pods of dolphin swimming past, heron and pelican fishing on the lagoon. Walk to the Gulf side for spectacular sunrises and sunsets. Along the way you're likely to encounter deer, raccoon, and more. This is a beach town, so there are plenty of nearby restaurants. Winn Dixie and Publix supermarkets are about 2 miles away. During the week you're likely to see and hear flights of fighter jets and helicopters from nearby Tyndal AFB. Florida state parks are among the best for camping in near-natural settings with the convenience of power and water hookups. St. Andrews is one of our favorites.
Just an overnight stop while passing through for us, but this is a nice clean, quiet, well-run park. Paved, level pads, not crammed together but no spacious either. Didn't use the pool, stocked lake, or other facilities, but they look well maintained. Would stay here again.
OK for a quick overnight. Agree with other reviewers: expensive for what you get. Wi-Fi was fast when I could connect, but was frequently unable to get and hold a connection. Suspect that it was saturated with too many users and needs more capacity. Pull-through spaces are narrow and relatively short. My 49' trailer plus tow vehicle barely fit. Manager was friendly and helpful. The night check-in desk was filthy with dead bugs and dirt. Payment envelopes were stuck shut.
Clean and well-maintained. Convenient free shuttle to Hershey park. Fair Tengo Wi-Fi coverage, though in the evenings the channels were overcrowded, not surprising in a camp that attracts so many families with children. Level, shady, solidly packed gravel spots. The pool looked nice, though we didn't take advantage of it. Lots of open grassy areas for kids to run and play. Campers are eligible to purchase discounted attraction tickets. Within walking distance of supermarket and restaurants. We stayed in the "Woodland" section, which is all pull-throughs. The sites are tightly packed, and are oriented such that none of the four traffic lanes, which are only one-vehicle wide, can be designated solely for exit. On departure we experienced a standoff with a fifth wheeler heading the other direction, necessitating one of us back up several hundred feet with little clearance to either side. Very active railroad line adjacent to the park, though our area was somewhat sheltered from the noise by a hill. We'd stay here again.
Nice, shady sites in the forest of the Blue Ridge about 1.5 mile off I-77. The roads to and within the camp are hilly and winding, but we had no problem towing a 30' trailer. Sites are a little larger than in many KOAs, but our gravel site required several leveling blocks. We stayed overnight while passing through. Staff was very courteous and friendly. We'd stay here again.
We only stayed overnight on our way through, but saw little to complain about, save the bath house. It appears not to have been updated in decades: wooden stalls and doors, old hardware. The floors were dirty, though the fixtures were "clean enough" if not sparkling. Our site was a moderately spacious pull-through in the back of the park near the interstate, so there was significant traffic noise. Most of the park appears to be long-term or seasonal residents. We didn't try the cafe or need anything from the small camp store. Nor did we use the pretty little lake with its man-made beach. We'd stay here again if passing through, but for a vacation weekend or week I'd probably look for places closer to the coast.
Clean little campground in the hills. Electric hookups in excellent condition. Each of the two sections has a community water spigot, but there are none for individual sites. Has a peaceful forest setting, a playground and a beautiful little stream runs beside both sections. Campground fills up quickly on weekends, but was almost empty on the Sunday night we stayed here.
We like this campground. Only its lack of "resort" amenities like pool, playground, etc., reduces our rating score. We stayed in one of the river sections and thoroughly enjoyed watching the barge traffic. There's not a lot else to do at the campground, but downtown Memphis is a short drive away. The sites are reasonably roomy, clean, and level. Water, electric and sewer hookups are in excellent condition. The WiFi was unreliable and slow, but we were about as far from the office as one can get. Still, we hope it will be upgraded before our next visit, because we'll surely return.
Campground is poorly maintained and badly managed. Reservation instructions said check-in 4PM without specifying whether that was the earliest or latest time boundary. With the check-out time listed as 3PM, I had to assume it was the earliest. Arrived just before 5PM but the office was closed. Proceeded to campground where most areas were blocked off, but with only two other RVs here, there were still a dozen or more sites accessible. Most of the electric boxes were tied closed with ribbon. Virtually all of the few that weren't, were non-functioning, had exposed wires and broken/missing panels or outlets. Finally found two working boxes. One had only 15 amp and 50 amp outlets. I needed 30 amps so was forced to use a box that had 15 and 30 amp outlets, each fused by a 40 amp (!) breaker. Not at all safe and certainly not code. I would have moved on to another campground, but this is far from any alternatives and it was late. I considered dry camping but with temps in the mid-90s and no generator, I elected to chance the electric service to be able to run my A/C. The water service seemed OK, and there looked to be a dump station which I didn't try to use. I left as soon as I had rested up, and didn't look back. NOT recommended.
An average KOA with a few nice touches, like two sewer hookups at our site to accommodate either rear or central waste pipes. Access roads are quite rough and the sites are not very spacious. Well-kept pool. Lots of families with children here. We'd stay here again, but only if we can't find a roomier, more natural campground nearby.
A beautiful campground on the lake. Shady paved sites with lots of grass. Boat launch. Two playgrounds. Peaceful. Clean. Liked it so much I stayed an extra day, even though I was on a schedule. Would definitely stay here again.
I didn't get to try the pool or canoes because of bad weather. Campground is well-equipped with things to do, and has a store well-stocked with useful goods and souvenirs. Very hilly, and the sites are not large, but not cramped either. Approach roads are narrow, hilly and twisty. If you're not comfortable maneuvering your rig in tight quarters this is not the place for you. Some of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Others were Philadelphia-surly. Wi-fi was mediocre to poor.
Beautiful setting among the dairy farms really captures the spirit of the Cumberland Valley. Great back roads for biking or jogging. Short drive to good shopping. Well-mowed grassy creekside sites. Nice people operating it. Needs some modernization in a few areas and attitudes: Doesn't accept credit cards yet (told that may happen soon), charge for more than one dump per stay, bath houses need modernization, water was silty after a hard rain, no wifi (I work while traveling). With a few basic updates this campground could be a 3 or 4-star jewel. Until then I can only give it 2 stars.
