This wonderful park that gets our first "10" since we began full timing 2 years ago. Although very large with almost 500 sites, it was equipped to handle a lot of campers with over a dozen bath houses, many trash dump locations, and several large activity areas. These included a pool, volleyball courts, tennis courts, activity center, nature center, and miles of paved and unpaved paths for biking and walking. The internal roads and large sites were paved and level. They were also spaced quite far apart and all had strong 50-amp full hookups and nice tables. No fire pits, unfortunately. The Verizon phone coverage was good, and our amplified MiFi unit signal was adequate. The laundry room featured over 25 washers and 25 dryers, but in a place this size it got quite busy at times. Bathrooms and showers were clean, and the showers had benches and hooks for toiletries and towels. The staff was friendly and helpful, even though they were always extremely busy. There were nice grocery stores and many restaurants within a 10-minute drive of the park. The streets were busy with lots of kids and bikes moving around, but everyone seemed to be having a good time. We stayed 3 weeks and found it was much cheaper to pay the monthly rate. If you stay a week or two your daily rate will be somewhat higher. The monthly rate is only offered during the winter months, after that the stay is apparently limited to 2 weeks.
This park is conveniently located to so many things - Fort Gaines, the Estuarium, the paved walk/bike path, beach access, the Audubon Bird Sanctuary trails and the Mobile Bay ferry to Fort Morgan/Gulf Shores are all within walking distance. It is a birder's paradise, especially during the spring and fall seasons. There is an excellent seafood store on the island, but larger grocery stores are at least 20 minutes away. The park itself is nothing special, narrow paved interior roads lead through mostly well-trimmed trees to sandy/dirt sites that are fairly level with decent spacing between them. Be aware that sites along the main road are exposed not only to vehicle traffic noise, but also a lot of racket as the ferry docks and loads several times every day. This is not an issue farther into the park. We were assigned site #41, which was "borderline noisy". The 50-amp power and water were strong, and most sites include sewer and a sturdy table on a concrete patio. Only a few sites have fire pits. Our amplified MiFi Internet worked well here, but our Verizon phones were very weak and we had to walk to the park's "hotspot" for reliable service. The laundry "room" was outdoors, with 4 washers and 4 dryers - only 2 of the washers provided hot water. The bathrooms and showers were very old, but cleaned daily. There are only 2 RV parks on Dauphin Island, and we've stayed at both. We prefer this one for its convenient location to everything; if your goal is to spend maximum time at the public beach you may want to investigate the other park. The city recently imposed an 11% "lodging fee" on the parks here, which brought our weekly rate above $40/day. A bit steep for this park, but what can you do? We love Dauphin Island and will stay at this park again.
This was a wonderful state park with paved interior roads, 30 level gravel sites, strong 50-amp power, and water to all of them. Book this one early, it is very popular! Sites were spacious and widely separated from neighbors. All sites had sewer, a table, and a fire pit with firewood for sale at the ranger station at a reasonable price. The reception to our Verizon phones and MiFi unit was good. It was mostly quiet during our stay, and we enjoyed bird-watching and taking several long walks. There was a canoe rental company just down the road that offered rides from our car to the starting point, then we just paddled a few miles back to our car and took off - this activity is not to be missed! Bathrooms were clean and nice, as were the showers. Grocery stores and other businesses were quite a distance from this isolated park, so come prepared with plenty of supplies. We would have rated it higher except for a couple of items. The rangers were rarely available except in the evenings, which was inconvenient when we wanted to ask questions about hiking or other area attractions. The hiking maps that were offered were useless and trail head markers were non-existent. The other downside was the military helicopters flying over at low altitude almost constantly on several days during our week's stay, and that certainly took away from the serenity of this beautiful place. However, we would stay here again if in the area.
After driving by the other RV parks in the Navarre area, I liked this one best due to the fact that most of the sites are farther off the busy highway. The other parks look nice, but are right along the road. The sites fronting the road here were noisy too, but we stayed at site #194 which was farther in, and it obviously gets quieter as you move further into the park. Interior streets were paved and sites were gravel, some leveling with our jacks was required. The 50-amp power and water were strong. Site spacing was decent, and there was a concrete patio with a table at each one. There were two laundry rooms here, a small one with 4 washers and 4 dryers near the front of the park and a larger one with 6 of each in the back. Bathrooms and showers were modern and clean, with benches for toiletries at the showers. My wife was very happy that many birds seemed to flock to this area. Although the park is small, it had a short walking path along the east side that we enjoyed often, and a nice "tiki beach" sort of area that faces Santa Rosa Island to the south. That area had several chairs and a long walkway out into the water - nicely done! NOTE: if you're approaching this park from the east and your Google Maps or GPS indicate you should pass the park and make a U-turn to come back, don't do it - totally unnecessary. There is a perfectly good traffic signal at the front of the park with a left turn lane that the GPS databases don't seem to know about, even though it doesn't appear to be new. From the east, once you go through the signal in front of Walmart get into the left lane and turn left into the park at the next signal. It was very difficult to turn our rig around where the GPS indicated we should.
I cannot recommend this park as big-rig friendly, unless you don't mind scratching large sections of your coach with tree branches as you enter. Folks with large 5th wheel rigs told me they agreed. The entry gate and street around the ranger station were extremely narrow. This park does have a lot of qualities, though. It was nice and quiet, being a long way from the nearest road. It had driving and walking trails that were nice, except when it rained incessantly, which it did for two days during my stay. There were a lot of birds and other wildlife to keep my wife happy, including the previously-mentioned white squirrels and albino deer. Interior roads were dirt with lots of potholes. Sites were dirt but fairly level. Spacing between sites was good. The 30-amp power and water were strong, and there were tables and fire pits at each site. The rangers were friendly. One of them came to our site very quickly to repair the broken faucet. The bathrooms were old, but clean. The showers had a bench and hook far from the stall, but no shelf in the shower for shampoo. I hate that! My rating is based on the problems I had due to my RV's size, but for folks with smaller units who enjoy the state park experience this could easily rate an 8 or 9.
This was an excellent tree-filled county park that was quiet and offered access to lots of wildlife right at their dock. Interior roads were dirt, as were the sites. We stayed in #42 and it was perfectly level. We did have a lot of standing water in our site after 2 days of rain, but it dried fairly quickly and we were able to get around. Power was 50-amp and strong, water pressure was barely adequate at just under 40 psi. A nice sturdy table and fire pit were located at each site, with wood for sale at the office - although it was expensive. The park Wi-Fi was free and worked well, and the Verizon signal to our phones and Hotspot was excellent. The bath house was new and beautiful, with clean bathrooms and showers that provided several hooks and a bench for toiletries - nicely done! The laundry room was clean and consisted of 4 washers and 4 dryers, plus a nice folding table. The staff was friendly and helpful, and it was nice to be able to walk down to the dock and rent a kayak for the day. The Publix grocery store was just a couple miles away, as was a huge Shell station where we fueled up with diesel and hooked up the car. We would definitely stay at this nice park again.
This park is conveniently located to the Punta Gorda Fisherman's Village and Harborwalk area, which are very nice. The paved interior roads were very narrow, and parking our RV was a challenge because of cars parked along both sides of the street. Our site (#4) was grass and level, with a nice concrete patio. Glad we didn't have to use our jacks though, because they would have sunk right into the soft, water-soaked ground. Spacing between the sites used for transient folks like us was generous, with room to park our car off the street. Water and 50-amp power were strong, and our Verizon reception for cell phones and Hotspot was excellent. The downside was that our site was located right up against the busy street running along the park, and traffic noise during the day was terrible - we didn't even want to sit outside to read or relax. Trucks going by at night made sleeping difficult, too. The office staff was very nice and helpful, and we found folks in the park to be extremely friendly. The laundry room was fine, with at least 8 washers and 8 dryers, but no car parking outside the building. Bathrooms were nice and clean, with separate shower rooms which were also clean. The grocery store and several other services were just up the street. With our only complaint being horrible road noise, we would probably stay here again if we could be located further from the street. Our rate was based on an RPI membership.
If you enjoy sitting at the departure end of a major airport and hearing screaming jets fly over every few minutes, then this place is for you! In addition, we were given site S4, which is one of the sites right up against busy Burris Road. Let me out of here! Thankfully, it was only a 3-night stay, and I have no idea how the hundreds of Canadian folks can live here for weeks or months. The woman who "greeted" us at the front gate was not at all friendly, and I'm sure she won't mind that we'll never be back. Sites for RV's were very tight, although the concrete pad was nice and level. Water pressure was extremely high - don't forget your regulator. 50-amp power was adequate. Verizon reception was great, and a strong picnic table was available at most sites. Bathrooms were very nice, and clean, but the showers did not provide shelves or benches for items I would want to take with me. The laundry machines required that you purchase a $5.00 card and charge it at their machine - no thanks, I'll wait for the next stop! There was a nice walking/biking path along nearby Orange Drive that we enjoyed. Good grocery stores and other services were fairly close by. I'm sorry, but I fail to find anything about this park that warrants $65 per day. Oh, here comes another jet - gotta go!
Without a doubt the noisiest RV park we have ever come across. Car noise, people noise and braking dog noise beginning before dawn. The park golf carts dragged garbage dumpsters through the park every day, and if you've ever heard that sound you know how obnoxious it is. The gravel sites were fairly level but tight. They call the sites pull throughs, but the gravel roads between rows were far too narrow for large rigs and we had to back out to leave. Utilities were strong. Bathrooms and showers were old but kept clean. The park is located only 1.5 miles from the beautiful Bahia Honda State Park, and 35 miles from Key West. The nearest grocery store is 8 miles south. Our rate was based on RPI membership. This park is far too noisy for us and we will not return.
My wife and I loved this park. Nice paved interior roads, and our large site (#152) was grass and perfectly level with a large concrete patio. Full hookups were good with strong power, water pressure and cable (we did not try the cable). The Verizon signal to our amplified Hotspot and phones was strong. There was a charge for the park's WiFi but it was very reasonable. We had a large tree over our site which helped with the afternoon sun but did not block our satellite signal. As mentioned previously, this park is located away from town in an agricultural area, which meant no outside road noise, and we were surprised how quiet it was inside this large park as well. We enjoyed walking the one-mile path around its borders several times. My wife counted 12 washers and many dryers in the laundry room, and a nice folding table was included. The pool was large and beautiful. We did not get a chance to check out the bathrooms or showers with all of the traveling we did into the Everglades National Park. Shark Valley is a must-do here, and is perfect for biking around to see all of the wildlife. The Flamingo Visitor Center is almost 60 miles away, but a nice drive and worth checking out. Great park, and although a little pricey we would definitely come back again!
Like many other parks in Florida, this one is set up for older folks who want to hang out in nice weather during the winter months, not for families who are on the move and want a nice place for a short layover. That said, my wife and I were ready for a break from our travels and we really liked this place. It is located just a short drive from the excellent Bonita Beach, Fort Myers Beach, Lover's Key State Park, and a little further, Sanibel Island. Many excellent restaurants and shopping areas are nearby. The park itself has lots of activities - tennis, pickle ball, horseshoes, pool sports and many other park events. The folks are friendly, although conversations aren't usually about traveling around in an RV. Sites are a bit tight and interspersed with lots of permanent structures. Utilities are strong and sites are level (we stayed at #186). As previously reported, the WiFi is terrible and a constant topic of complaint, so bring your own if you can. Cell coverage is good and each site has a concrete patio and strong table. Laundry rooms are screened in areas with lots of machines, but a card system was used that we didn't like. Cards for laundry were recharged at the office, so laundry couldn't be done during off-hours or on Sundays unless you planned ahead. UPS and Fedex delivered directly to sites, so this is a good place to stay if you need to do some fix-ups on your rig. We recommend it to anyone 55+ looking for an excellent location to hang out for a while. The daily rate was based on a one-month stay, and be sure to reserve early for January-March.
We stayed here for a week and think it would be a great place to winter in Florida. It is a 55+ community, so really not a family camping stop. There were so many activities - bocce ball, pickle ball, horseshoes, shuffleboard, tennis, a pool, and a nature trail for riding or walking around the park. Note that this is a large "manufactured home" park with RV sites interspersed. Site spacing was fairly good, with room to park the car next to the RV with space left over. Folks were very friendly and the place was surprisingly quiet. Interior roads were paved, sites gravel and level with concrete patios and strong 50 amp power and water. Sewer, a table, and cable TV were included, but we did not use the cable. Our Verizon phones and amplified Wi-Fi data unit worked flawlessly. The park had Internet available for a fee; we did not try it. The laundry room was huge with many machines - more like a commercial facility. The bathrooms and showers were nice and clean, with benches and hooks available at the showers. Grocery stores were less than 10 minutes away, with other services only minutes further. We enjoyed this park very much and recommend it to anyone staying in the area. Our daily rate was based on a one-week stay.
This park is in the process of being sold to a developer and will be closed in the next few weeks. Although a review is probably not necessary, I'll include some of the major issues. Maintenance was pretty much non-existent due to the sale. Water pressure was very low, we had to run our pump to keep the pressure up to an acceptable level. The 50-amp electrical service was running at about 109 volts, too low for RVs like ours. Bathrooms were old and not maintained, not cleaned regularly either. The people here were very nice, but since they were being forced to move there was a depressed mood as the moving trucks came in every day. Do not plan to stay here during the next month or so if you want to relax or have a good experience. We reserved many months ago before the sale went through and did not know what we were getting into.
Nothing special here, a nice enough place to stop over on our way south. Internal roads and sites were gravel. Site spacing was adequate and they were long and level - no jacks needed where we stayed (#51). There was a muddy "rut" across the entrance to our pull-through site - bad enough that I went to the next street and backed in. The 50-amp power was sufficient, and water pressure was strong. They also offered Wi-Fi, cable, and a telephone outlet, none of which we used. Tables were included but no fire pits. Bathrooms and showers were decent and clean, but there was a bad "stale" odor in them. Same with the laundry room, which had 4 nice washers and dryers but the stale odor was strong. Propane was available here, a nice service. There was some freeway noise from I-95, but not too bad. The short drive to Old St. Augustine took about 15 minutes, and there were dozens of restaurants in that area. We would stay here again if passing through the area.
This was one place that lived up to the designation "resort". Roads were paved and sites concrete. The full hookups featured strong 50-amp power and water, and each site provided a table. Site spacing was decent, with shrubbery between each one to give some sense of privacy. The concrete pads were a bit narrow, but we parked all the way to the left edge of ours (#405) and were satisfied with what remained on the other side. Bathrooms and showers were gorgeous, and very clean. Showers had benches and a hook outside the stall - always nice to see. The laundry room we used contained 4 washers, 4 dryers and plenty of folding tables. There was a second building with bathrooms, showers and laundry at the back of the park, and it was every bit as nice. The pool was beautiful and available for use. The park provided free Wi-Fi and it worked well, as did our Verizon phone signal. Cable was available, but we did not try it. The location of the park was convenient to Jekyll Island with its fantastic bike paths, and also to St. Simons Island. The one downside here was the freeway noise from I95. It was fairly loud, but we got used to it after a while. However, if you're looking for a quiet park this may not be the one. The daily rate cited was based on their weekly rate. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.
Another great Georgia park! We loved the huge pull-through site with strong 30-amp power, strong water, and a large table and fire pit. It was extremely quiet this time of the year, maybe not so much during the summer because I'm sure families must love this place. Plenty of space between sites where we stayed (#11). The dump station turnout was a bit tight for our RV. Roads are paved, sites are dirt and mostly level - we did not need our jacks. Several raccoons running around, and my wife was in "bird heaven"! Our Verizon phones and amplified Hotspot device worked great, and we were able to receive many TV channels, which was good since all the trees prevented satellite reception - fine with us! The restroom/laundry building near the camping entrance was fairly new, with clean restrooms and showers, the showers included hooks and benches. The laundry room consisted of one washer, one dryer and a folding table. The other building near the back of the park was older and not in such great shape. There were plenty of roads and trails to keep walkers and bicyclists happy, especially if you included the 1.3 mile access road to the camping area. There was a Publix grocery store about 6 miles up the road, downtown Savannah was about 25 miles away. We couldn't find anything wrong with this place - just what we like and we'll be back!
We really enjoyed this campground and would return. Internal roads are paved with lots of speed bumps, so take it slow coming in. Sites are grass or compressed gravel and look mostly level. Ours (MM4) did not require jacks at all and there was plenty of room for the car off the street. Spacing between sites was small, but not tight. The 50-amp power was strong and water pressure was adequate at just under 40psi. Tables and cable TV were included, but we used our satellite antenna which worked fine from our site. Verizon phone and amplified MiFi signals were strong. Bathrooms and showers were clean and the showers had benches and hooks. The laundry room consisted of 4 washers and two dryers, somewhat small for a park of this size. The Publix market was pretty much next door, with Costco and other stores about 15 minutes away. The very nice Charleston visitor center is a 12-mile drive, and most of the sightseeing is just south of their location. Busy highway 17 runs right by the front of the park, but we didn't hear any road noise from our site. Other parts of the park are close to the road, though.
Not even considering that we paid only $12.00 per night, this is one of the nicest parks we have been to in a long time. Very well maintained, the roads are paved and sites are concrete and level with full hookups conveniently located. It is a bit tight getting large rigs parked, but I've seen worse and we were able to fit our car in front of the motorhome without incursion into the street. Each site has a table, and we were happy to have one (#163) where we could park under a tree and still have the satellite dish sync up. The 50-amp power and water were very strong. Our Verizon phones and amplified Wi-Fi worked flawlessly. There was a charge to use the campground Wi-Fi, but we didn't need it. The bathrooms, showers and laundry room were nice and clean, with six washers, six dryers and a large folding table in the laundry room. No road noise to speak of, and we enjoyed being around a quieter and more mature crowd - although it could be different during the summer months. The permanent structures at the back of the park were well maintained and did not impede on the area enjoyed by the RV crowd. The number of restaurants, grocery stores, outlet malls and other services in the immediate area is unbelievable. We walked to three excellent restaurants next door at Barefoot Landing, and there were several walkways there to extend our walks. It's just over a mile to free parking at the beach. We loved this campground and look forward to coming back.
This campground was an acceptable place to stay during our stopover and visit to Ocracoke Island. Access through the gate into the park and along the internal paved roads was tight for our motorhome, as were the sites. The 50-amp service and water pressure were good. The site surface was dirt, fairly level, and it held up well as we departed after a torrential rain. The bathrooms, showers and laundry room were very old and in rough shape, although they seemed clean. Most of the sites contained seasonal trailers in various condition, mostly not so good. We would probably not stay here again.
Not much more than a sandy parking lot, but excellent beach access and a good place to stay while visiting the area. Forget about using jacks here, but if you're not level just dig holes in the sand around the tires until you get it right. Site spacing was extremely tight, possibly the worst we've seen. We could not extend our awning without hitting the neighbor's coach. The 50-amp power and water were very strong, and each site had sewer and a table. The staff was friendly. Note that credit cards are not accepted here. As previously mentioned, there are no facilities so bring your own. They appear to offer Wi-Fi, but we brought our own and did not try it out. There was some noise from the road next to the beach, but it was somewhat offset by the nice sounds of pounding ocean waves. Grocery stores, the Wright monument and other services were minutes away. Fine for a few days, but probably not longer. If the sites were a little bit roomier we would rate it much higher, and it is a bit pricey considering there are no facilities. However, we would stay here again if in the area.
This was a good campground for the money - our daily rate was based on our RPI membership. The park was busy on the weekend prior to Halloween, with many cars sitting close to the internal roads - which were paved and very narrow. Sites were dirt, spacing fairly tight and many were not level, as previously noted. We were happy when the friendly office staff urged us to select a site we liked when we arrived, and we found one (B43) that didn't even require our jacks. A combination must be entered to open the entry gate, which we liked. The 50-amp electrical was strong, but water pressure was a bit low at 30 psi. Each site also had sewer, a BBQ stand and a fire pit. There was some distant noise from highway 64, but not bothersome at our location in the middle of the park. We were not able to check out the restrooms, showers or laundry room due to our short stay and busy schedule. A grocery store was located within 2.5 miles, and a Walmart Supercenter at 5 miles. Access to Old Williamsburg, Yorktown and Jamestown was very good from the campground. We would stay here again.
This is a good place to stay while visiting the DC area, as we did for 10 days. Only 15 minutes to the College Park/UMD Metro station, then a very comfortable ride to any part of DC you desire. Interior campground roads were paved, sites gravel and level, with strong 50-amp service and water, sewer, a fire pit and a table. Spacing between sites was decent. This place had excellent free internet access with several access points throughout the park, and we did not experience the drops or slow speeds previously reported. Verizon signal to our MiFi and phones was strong. The office staff was helpful, and there was a daily gathering with a knowledgable person who distributed information, answered questions and helped with bus schedules for folks who wanted to use the convenient shuttle from the park. The laundry room was large with many machines - nice. The "bathhouses" we checked were modern with good showers, and were very clean. The pools were closed for the season, but looked nice. There was an onsite conference center and even a cafe, but we never had a chance to try the food. A large grocery store was only a mile away, with many other large businesses and services just a few minutes farther. The busy I-95 runs very near the park, so there was always background noise - but it was not bad enough to keep us awake at night. Although a bit pricey because they have no weekly rate, we loved this campground and would definitely come back. The rate we got was with a Good Sam discount.
This place was way over priced for what it offered , but it was about the only thing available along our route - there aren't many campgrounds in Delaware. It's along a very noisy road, and the fire department right next door adds to the chaos several times a day. As previously mentioned, this is a place for an overnight stop only. There is a lot of junk sitting around from the hotel, and some rather unsavory-looking folks walked through the park while we were there. Nothing more than a gravel lot behind a motel, but the full hookups worked well with strong 50-amp power and water. We don't plan to return.
Nothing fancy, but this was a nice, quiet campground and a good value for the money (the daily rate is based on our RPI membership). The interior roads were gravel and smooth, with trees clipped back enough to avoid scratching large rigs. Sites were close together, consisted of gravel and varied in levelness - it took some effort to get level in site #218. However, that site probably had the best lake view of any in the park. The 30-amp power and water were adequate. Cable, sewer and tables were provided at the sites, there was a charge for the wireless internet. Our amplified Verizon internet signal and cell phones were strong. Bathrooms and showers were nice and clean, and the showers at the office building had benches and shelves - I much preferred them. The laundry room consisted of 3 washers, 3 dryers and a small folding table. Although closed for the season, there was a nice pool and playground for the kids. Access to grocery stores and other services was about 15 minutes away, Atlantic City was just a short drive as well.
For $86 per night I think it's reasonable to expect a lot, and that's what you get - a parking lot. You also get excellent access to NYC. This is the only campground game around, and the owner knows it. That said, this was a safe and decent place to park our coach while we checked out the City. Access is via paved roads, and the tightly-packed sites are gravel and level. The 50-amp power and water were strong. Sewer should be included at the sites, but isn't - a dump station is available. Tables are located at most sites. Internet is available - for a fee! Fortunately, we had our own Internet access via Verizon, and it was excellent as was our cell phone signal. The large bathrooms and showers were clean and set up nicely. The laundry room consisted of 6 washers, 6 dryers and a large folding table. The office staff was friendly and helpful with transportation issues. As if the noise of the city weren't enough, the construction of a large building right next door took up the slack nicely during the week. Hopefully, that project will be completed in a couple of months. If for some reason we ever had a desire to come back to NYC in our RV again, we would stay here.
As previously mentioned, the road to this park is windy, narrow and needs a lot of tree-trimming - not a fun drive in a large coach. Of course, that is not the campground's fault, but folks should be aware of it. Large potholes greeted us at the entrance. Sites were grass, decently spaced and not very level. Our site had a concrete patio, table and fire pit which we were able to enjoy often. The 50-amp power and water were strong and the Verizon signal to our amplified MiFi and phones was good. Bathrooms and showers were old and not very clean. The laundry room was fairly nice and had a folding table. The office staff was friendly, and firewood was available there. Considering the number of seasonal/permanent residents, this park was fairly quiet. Stores and other services were within a 15-minute drive. Note: All transactions are cash or check only at this campground. We would stay at this campground again if in the area.
This was a nice state park with excellent access to the ferry which travels to Block Island which is one of the places we wanted to visit and not to be missed. Roads into and through the park were paved and sites were dirt and fairly level. Although, jacks were required for many. The pull-through sites were long and wide with lots of room for parking, and spacing between sites was large with tall shrubbery between each - lots of privacy here. Each site had a good table and fire pit. There was some road noise from nearby highway 108, but we did not find it overly bothersome because it is car traffic and not for large trucks. The 30-amp power was adequate and water pressure was strong. There was no laundry, Wi-Fi or sewer available, but a dump station was located near the entrance to our section. Unfortunately, the bathrooms and showers were a disappointment. In area 4 where we stayed, they were old and not very clean. The pay showers were not ones that I would want to use unless I had to. Grocery stores and other shopping were about 3.5 miles away, and lots of good restaurants could be found at nearby Galilee Harbor. I am rating this park high based on the fact that we did not use the bathrooms or showers, and we do not care about Wi-Fi, laundry or sewer at the site. Other folks who want these things may be disappointed, but we really liked this place and hope to come back again.
This is a very nice, tree-filled park which is mostly quiet. Trains do go by occasionally, but not close enough to be too disturbing. Interior roads are paved and then gravel to the sites. We were guided to our site by the friendly staff, and it was very level (site #1). Site spacing was fairly generous. 50A power and water were strong, and sewer, tables and fire pits were available at each site. The free park WiFi worked well, and we had a good Verizon signal for our MiFi and phones. Cable was included, but we did not use it so can't comment. Bathrooms were individual rooms with included showers, which were old but clean. The laundry room consisted of 6 washers, 3 dryers and a nice folding table. The staff was helpful in assisting us with our plans to visit Boston - both in getting tours and in arranging transportation - driving into Boston can be a very lengthy proposition. Although a bit pricey, we would stay here again.
Although the sites here were fairly close together and there were a lot of them, this turned out to be a fairly quiet and nice park. Interior roads were paved to the office, then gravel to and in the sites. The campground was full of trees, but they were mostly easy to navigate around - some did scrape a bit on taller coaches. A code was required to get into the entry gate, which we liked. Thirty amp power and water were strong, and each site had sewer, a table and a fire pit. We found a fairly level site, but there were many that were not. There was a charge for park Wi-Fi, but we brought our own and the signal was fine to it and our Verizon phones. Bathrooms were dated, but clean, and the laundry room was nice with 6 washers, 6 dryers and a nice folding table. There were many stores, services, tourist towns and excellent restaurants nearby, but getting onto very busy highway 1 was difficult at almost any hour. The daily rate is based on our RPI membership. We would stay here again.
This small park is fairly convenient to Camden, and a good stopover for folks moving up or down the coast of Maine. The entry road is gravel with a lot of potholes, but they were making an effort to fill the holes during our stay. Sites in the "premium" areas were narrow gravel back-ins, and the front row of the premium section had a nice view of the water. We found a level site, but several others were not even close to level and many of the grass sites would not be usable for a large RV. Spacing between sites was decent, 50 amp power and water pressure were good, and premium sites had sewer. Most sites had tables and fire pits. Wi-Fi was provided, but very slow. The staff was friendly, once we located someone. We chose a site and parked, but it took quite a while before we found someone at the office to check us in. The laundry room was old and consisted of 2 washers, 2 dryers and no folding table - not user friendly. The bathrooms and showers were very old and the shower stalls were in bad shape. I would not use them unless I had to. Grocery stores and other services were approximately 15 minutes away. Although this was a quiet place off the main highway, we think it was overpriced for a place with such old facilities.
This nice, small campground is fairly close to Acadia Park and Bar Harbor, but far enough away to avoid the crowds and busy roads. It is off the highway far enough to avoid any road noise. Interior roads and sites were gravel, our site (#15) was nice and level. Site spacing was fair, and many of them were long pullthroughs - great for big rigs towing cars. Fifty amp power was strong, water pressure was adequate. Sewer, cable, a fire pit and table were included. My wife reported the free Wi-Fi was very fast. Personnel in the office was extremely helpful - he basically helped us outline all of our activities while here AND recommended the best restaurants in the area. The laundry room consisted of 3 washers, 4 dryers and a small folding table. It was clean, as were the bathrooms and showers, which were a bit dated. The showers had chairs and hooks outside of the stalls - nice. The nearest grocery stores were approximately 3 miles away and Bar Harbor was a 40-minute drive. This campground is centrally located to at least 3 beautiful scenic drives in the area, just ask about them at the office when you arrive!
We really enjoyed this campground with an outstanding ocean view just feet away. Nothing like enjoying a campfire with the ocean right across the street! Not to mention the beautiful sunrises and sunsets viewable from the park. The quaint St. Andrews harbor is just up the street - easy walking distance to many shops and excellent restaurants. The street that runs between the ocean and the front of the park gets some traffic, but not too bad and it's quiet at night. The staff were friendly and helpful. Sites were close together - especially along the ocean - but long enough for our motorhome and car combined. The 30 amp power and water pressure were adequate, and we had sewer. Internet was extremely slow during the day. The bathrooms and showers were modern and beautiful - very clean. The laundry room consisted of 3 washers and 3 dryers, with a reasonably-sized folding table. Each site had a table and fire pit, with wood for sale at the office. Interior roads were paved, sites were gravel and level. There were some short walking paths around the park, with easy access to the ocean and road to the harbor. Our only nitpick was that the ocean sites were badly marked as to which side of the utilities to park on, depending on which end of the RV faces the ocean. This was a source of confusion for several campers, and even the camp host who put us in the wrong location! This issue created a lot of tight parking and needs to be fixed somehow. Otherwise, we loved this park and would definitely come back for a longer stay.
This is a reasonably priced, clean, quiet campground with a nice atmosphere. It is located over a hill from the busy freeway, so there is no exterior road noise. Access to the park is paved, but interior roads are dirt/rock and a bit bumpy. Sites are dirt/gravel, nice and long. They are fairly level in most cases, we did not need our jacks. Spacing between sites was fairly tight. 30A power and water pressure were good. Some sites had shared utility posts, so long cords and hoses were needed by some folks. All had tables and fire pits, with firewood on sale at the office. Internet was slow but usable most of the time. The staff were friendly and helpful. The laundry room consisted of 3 washers and 3 dryers, but the folding table was tiny. Bathrooms and showers were fairly old but clean, and the showers had a large area with a bench and hooks outside of each - nice. This campground is only a few minutes away from many stores, services and walking/biking trails in Moncton. We would definitely stay here again.
This campground resides on a pretty hill overlooking the water. Access via Highway 4 from either direction is not fun because the road condition is terrible. Once in the park, the roads are decent compacted dirt and gravel with gravel sites. Most of the pull-through sites are fairly level, but others not so much. 50A electrical was strong, but water pressure was weak at 30psi. We did not use the water anyway, because we were advised that it had to be boiled prior to drinking. Fortunately we had enough in our fresh tank to last 2 nights. Site spacing was fairly spacious with a fire pit and picnic table at each. The internet access previously raved about has obviously changed. Although it was good when it worked, it froze several times each day, and we had to ask for it to be reset. After several times doing this, we gave up - no internet. Road noise from the main highway 104 was pretty bad throughout the campground. Staff was very friendly. The laundry room was clean with a big folding table. Bathrooms and showers were very nice and sparkling clean (showers are coin-operated). The nearest grocery store was 16 miles away. Without the water and internet problems, we would stay here again overnight if in the area, but we'd prefer to drive further to find a park with nearby services and attractions.
This is a wonderful campground on a hill overlooking Bras D'Or lake and the Seal Island Bridge. It is located just off highway 105, but road noise was not an issue at our location. The park is run by a very friendly and helpful couple who guided us to our site and gave instructions on how best to use the facilities and internet, which worked very well most of the time. Interior roads are sand and gravel, and sites are either grass in the lower section or gravel in the top section. Get the top section if you can for the best view. Our site was fairly level, 50A power was strong, but water pressure was weak at 30psi and I had to supplement it with my freshwater pump. Each site had a table. Sites are spaced fairly close together, especially in the lower section. The laundry room was old and contained 4 washers, 2 large dryers and a small folding table. Bathrooms and showers were nice and clean, with benches and hooks outside of the shower stalls. Stores and other services are about 14 miles away. The daily rate was based on a one-week stay with a KOA membership. We will definitely stay at this beautiful park again if we get a chance.
This is a fairly quiet park with good access to Halifax and Peggy's Cove. It is located along busy highway 213 - we heard little road noise at our site, but it could be much louder at other locations. Sites are spaced fairly close together, but trees between them offer some privacy. We were not able to deploy our main awning due to location of the trees at our site. Interior roads are gravel, as are the sites which are fairly level. 30A power and water were strong, sewer and a table were provided at each site. Internet was excellent most of the time, sometimes a bit slow in the evenings. There is a nice pool near the office, away from most sites. Bathrooms/showers were old but clean. The laundry rooms were old with very small folding tables, but the machines worked. The staff were helpful, and they offered campers delicious fresh cooked lobster at a reasonable price - ask about it when you arrive. Grocery stores and other services are within approximately 10-15 minutes of the park. We would stay here again.
This campground is HUGE - 500 sites and the noise level is high. We were directed to take a road to the site which lead under low trees - the worst scraping our RV has ever received! We could have taken another paved road and backed in, but the office staff seemed unaware of this. Thirty amp power is marginal, water pressure is strong. The park Internet is unusable during the day - way oversubscribed. We did not have a chance to check the bathrooms/showers during our stay. Good site spacing for such a large park. Some shade in some sites. Paved interior roads, sites are grass. Jacks sink into the ground, even on large blocks. Very busy resort area with tons of restaurants and amusement parks all around. We might come back for an overnight stay, but this park is just too large and busy for us to relax in.
This is an overpriced campground that is OK for an overnight stay, but in our opinion the site spacing is too tight for longer stays. It's more of a family-oriented place, so perhaps better suited to weekends at the pool with the kids than for full-time RV'ers. Fortunately, the pool and other "kiddie activities" are near the front of the park near the office, so it was quieter than we had thought it would be. Roads are a mix of asphalt and gravel with a lot of potholes. The friendly office staff issues a "proximity card" (deposit required) for entry during your stay, and we like that. Site power output and water pressure are adequate. We also had sewer and a picnic table. Fire pit units can be rented at the office. Free internet is available throughout the park, but as expected it is very slow during the day. The laundry room consists of 5 washers, 5 dryers and a nice folding table. Bathrooms and showers are dated and not so good, showers are coin operated and I would not want to use them. Lots of shopping and other services are nearby, and the amazing Hopewell Rocks are about 50 minutes away. Access to the park from the freeway is easy, but far enough away that road noise is not a problem. We would probably stay here again if in the area.
After getting off the convenient free ferry, we were guided to our pull-through site with strong 50 amp power and good water pressure. The site also included sewer, a table and fire pit. The interior roads and sites are gravel, and many sites are not very level. Spacing between sites is adequate. We heard some noise from a passing train and the ferry that runs 24 hours a day, but it was not bad at our location in the park. Bathrooms and showers are dated, and the showers are coin-operated. We did not use our phones or personal Internet, so not sure about the Verizon signal. The office provides a "Hotspot", but you must be right in the building to pick it up. Except for weekend days, guests must manually open and close the gate into and out of the campground, a bit clunky and not fun in bad weather. Hello, ever heard of electric gates? Stores and services are fairly close by, after you take the ferry back across. It runs every few minutes and is organized and actually fun to ride. We felt the park was a bit overpriced and noisier than we like.
This park is a good value and very nice for big rigs. Spacious sites are long and level with strong 50 amp power and water. Sites also include sewer, cable and a picnic table - no fire pit. Roads and sites are gravel with easy access, and some sites are tree-shaded. The friendly staff was very helpful and we were guided to our site. Verizon signal for our Internet and phones was strong. We did not try the Internet provided by the park. Bathrooms and showers were nice and clean. Two small laundry rooms are available to campers. The nearest grocery store was only a couple of minutes away, and other stores and services are just a few miles further. If this campground had hiking and biking trails it would get a "9" from us for sure. We enjoyed the nice quiet atmosphere and are already looking forward to a longer stay when we come back out of Canada in a few weeks.
We really enjoyed this campground and will likely return. A little tight getting a large motorhome into the rear area, but the 30A power and water were strong. Access is via a gravel/dirt road and sites seemed to have the same surface and were fairly level. All sites had fire pits and tables. Lots of trees in the camping area, and spacing between sites was good. Bathrooms and showers are dated but clean. There was a laundry room with 2 washers and 2 dryers which looked like it hadn't had much use. This campground was nice and quiet while we were there during the week for 3 nights. The "Desert of Maine" tour at the front office is quite interesting and half price for campers. Access to grocery stores and the very busy outlet/restaurant area of Freeport is only 4 miles away. Staff at the office were very friendly and helpful. We did not use the park internet, but Verizon service for our phones and amplified internet was strong.
We stayed only 2 nights at this campground close to Concord, but it was a nice quiet place even during the summer vacation season. Our only issue was that it was very difficult to drive a large motorhome around the office and through the tree-filled park. 50A power and water were strong. Sites had tables and fire pits. Main access was paved, then gravel interior roads and loose gravel sites, which were spacious. Bathrooms and showers were dated but clean. The staff was very friendly and guided us to our site. We did not use the park WiFi, but the Verizon signal for our amplified MiFi and phones worked fine. The rate reflects a mid-week special they were running when we arrived. We would return to this campground.
If you're looking for a family-oriented campground and don't mind a lot of noise late into the night, this one's for you. Unfortunately, my wife and I were looking for something a bit quieter and decided to look elsewhere after a couple of nights. This park has many activities for the kids - access to Lake Dunmore, multiple pools and a game room. As previously mentioned, rules are not followed and we listened to parties running until 1:00am. Access to our site was almost impossible. It was down a dead-end street with the back-in sites facing the wrong way! We would have had to back our RV all the way down the street to park if the other sites had been occupied. Sites were gravel and fairly level. The 30A power and water were strong, but the dump station was located in such a way that I would have had to block the street to dump and I didn't even try it. Verizon signal for phones and internet is non-existent, so we had to pay the $15 charge for their "service" which was very slow. Bathrooms and showers were clean. We could not find the laundry room which was on their map. This is easily one of the worst campgrounds we have ever encountered. We strongly recommend against it for folks in larger RV's; especially, if you want a quiet place to stay.
We think this is an excellent campground, and the only reason it doesn't get a "10" from us is that Internet connectivity was a problem and that is important in our travels. Other than that, we think this is a perfect location for access to area activities, especially for full-timers and others in large RVs. The park is secured with "proximity cards" and is very quiet (we stayed 5 nights, including a weekend). Access is on paved streets and sites are compacted gravel and fairly level. Utilities are very strong 50 amp and water, sewer and cable are included. Each site has a nice picnic table and fire pit, and site spacing was generous. Office staff were friendly and helpful and we got the impression that this was a place we could stay for an extended period of time and get along well with these folks. The "permanent" and "seasonal" sites are well cared for. The many trees provided reprieve from the sun and were trimmed for large rig access. The laundry room consisted of 3 washers and 3 dryers, and it was clean as were the bathrooms and showers. As I mentioned, there was no Internet through the campground and we had to go to the office area to get online. Verizon signals to our phones and amplified MiFi unit was mostly unusable. The list of hiking, biking, eating and other adventure activities in this area is almost endless. We will certainly come back here anytime we are in the area.
We came to this park on our RPI membership rate, $10. It took a while to get used to the layout of the sites, since they are split very strangely front-to-back in the area we stayed so that two units will fit into each "pull-through". Utilities are water and 30 amp electric only, and don't forget your adapter to plug into a standard household outlet for the 30 amps - never seen that before. However, the power and water pressure were strong. The sites some grass and some gravel, with good gravel interior roads. They are also spacious, and it was very easy for us to level. Landscaping is nice and there is a pool for the kids. There is also a cafe onsite, although we did not eat there. Bathrooms and showers were adequate and clean. We did not find a laundry room. Verizon internet to our amplified MiFi was marginal, phones worked fine. Noise from highways and exterior roads is non-existent and it's nice and quiet at night. We stayed only 2 nights during the week, so can't comment on weekend noisiness. Each site has a decent picnic table and fire pit. The staff is friendly and helpful. The nearest grocery store (Walmart Supercenter) is about 13 miles away in Central Square. We would stay here again.
This is a nice KOA park in a very busy area. Road noise from I-190 can be heard from most areas of the park, and some sites are very close to the freeway. Sites are spaced fairly close together. Interior roads and sites are gravel. After a major storm our jacks sank into the gravel about 4 inches and I had to dig them out. The staff is friendly and they lead each RV to their site. The 50 amp electric and water were strong and the cable brought in many stations. The free WiFi was slow due to the heavy load. Each site had a picnic table and fire pit, with wood available at the office. The laundry room had 12 washers and 6 dryers, but there was no parking close by and we had to walk quite a ways. Also, the laundry room is small with no good folding areas. Bathrooms were nice and clean, as were the showers. The nearest grocery store was about 10 minutes away, and of course there are many attractions nearby - making this a great place to stay while you visit the Falls. We would stay here again.
We had a nice spacious site next to the lake and witnessed fantastic sunsets, as previously noted. However, we weren't ready for the odor coming off the lake. Good night Nellie, it was terrible! Maybe we were just here at a bad time, but it pretty much ruined the stay. Our rating is based on our experience and would be higher if not for this issue. If you can book at a time of year when the odor is not present, you should consider site #20 for a great lake view (we stayed in #18). 50A power was strong. Each site had a picnic table and fire pit. Roads are paved and are in decent condition, and the sites are gravel and fairly level. Our Verizon phones showed only one bar, and our Verizon internet was on "roam" and not usable most of the time. The bathroom and shower rooms were adequate and cleaned daily, and the shower water pressure was fantastic. There was a small walking path, but we did not have a chance to try it out so can't comment. The staff were all young kids, but they were friendly and helpful. We found a grocery store about 15 minutes away. Considering there was no water or sewer at the sites, I feel this campground was very expensive for a state park.
We enjoyed this campground, even over the 4th of July weekend. Finding the place is easy from I-80, and it is far enough away from the freeway that noise is not a factor. Interior roads and sites are gravel and quite level - we didn't need our jacks. The owner leads all RVs to their site and gladly assists with hooking up utilities. Pull through sites use side-by-side hookups, so each unit alternates in which direction it faces. This makes things a bit tight on the hookup side, but extra space is allotted to the "curb" side. So, we were fairly close to our neighbors when outside - this can be good or bad, depending on your neighbor. Tables and fire pits are provided at all sites, with wood for sale (and delivered) by the friendly office staff. The park provides activities, but a pool would probably make the kids a lot happier. I don't use park pools - this is just an observation. There are short walking paths around the park, but extensive hiking trails are 20 miles away at another State Park. Power is 50 amp, but with everyone running their AC units, I was seeing 112 volts - not good. Water was 40PSI and the cable was fine, but provided only 3-4 channels. The Verizon signal was excellent and the park Wi-Fi was fast. Bathrooms are old with small shower stalls, but they were very clean and had benches and hooks outside the showers. The laundry room consisted of 3 washers and 3 dryers. Access to the nearest grocery store (Walmart Supercenter) is about 5 miles away in Clearfield. The rate cited is a weekly rate.
This campground is definitely geared toward kids, which we do not have. However, they were able to keep the place fairly quiet even with the 4th of July, just a couple of days away. Very nice that there didn't appear to be any "permies" living here. The long road into the park is paved and in fair condition, but they do a good job of "filling the holes" regularly. This and the well-trimmed trees lead me to believe maintenance is taken seriously here. Sites are not super-level, but it can be done with some maneuvering around. Some sites are difficult to access due to the density of trees in those areas, but we were able to get in with a large MH. Power is strong, water is at 40PSI and the Wi-Fi works well. Cable is provided, but we did not hook up to it. Each site has a good table and fire pit provided, wood was for sale at the office. The pool, hayride and other activities were very well attended by the kids during the day - maybe that's why the camping area was fairly quiet. We got only 1-2 bars on our Verizon phones, but our amplified HotSpot worked well. The laundry room consisted of 4 washers and 4 dryers, 3 of the dryers were broken the day we arrived, but fixed the next day - nice work! The staff was friendly and helpful. Bathrooms were very nice with beautiful clean showers that have benches for items. There is a short walking trail up a hill, but when we went the bugs were incredibly aggressive and we ran out of there. Stores in Lewiston and Milton are about 20 minutes away. We like this park and would return for a longer stay.
This was a nice, quiet park with beautiful grounds and good facilities. Check-in was organized. Sites were level, but somewhat close together. Power and water were strong, and the WiFi was fast. The Verizon signal was weak for our phones, but strong enough that our amplified HotSpot unit worked well. Park roads and sites are compressed gravel and well maintained. Each site had a picnic table and fire pit, with wood available at the office. Bathrooms and showers were adequate and clean. The small laundry room had 2 each washers and dryers. The nearest grocery store was only 10 minutes away, and other services were available a bit further away in the busy town. The park held a potluck dinner and other activities that families would likely enjoy, and their pool and "air pillow" were very popular with the kids. As previously mentioned, the turn onto Walnut Bottom Road after leaving the park is very hazardous for larger units accessing it, and I was not looking forward to that maneuver when we left. We would come back to this park.
Just when we thought the roads into a campground couldn't get any worse, we found this place. And the low-hanging branches over my site were bad enough that I did my own pruning prior to leaving. It was very quiet while we were here, since we were located at the end of the "seasonal area" where nobody seemed to reside at the time. Bathrooms and showers were old but adequate. The park WiFi was good, Verizon signal was weak. Our site was an end spot very close to to the next one, but spacing was sufficient in most areas. The 30A power and water pressure were good. Our site included a picnic table and fire ring. The staff was very friendly. There was access to the fantastic C & O Canal Rail Trail from the park, which was nice. Services in the small town of Hancock were about a 15-minute drive away. This campground is probably fine for most folks traveling in smaller units for a weekend, but the roads and sites are not intended for larger rigs.
This is a fairly nice park, once you pass through the area of rundown mobile homes prior to the entrance, as mentioned previously. It is located about 30 miles from Romney, WV, where the Potomac Eagle train trip originates. It's about 1 hour and 15 minutes from the beautiful Blackwater Falls State Park. The full hookups include strong water and 50 amp service. Sites have fire pits, but no picnic tables, and they do sell firewood at the office. The Verizon signal was very weak, so we were thankful for the fast and reliable Wi-Fi they provided. Most of the short-term sites are on a level, gravel lot with good spacing between sites. There are a lot of permanent dwellers here, but their lots are clean and nicely landscaped. There is a nice walking trails that circles the campground and goes down by the river. Roads in the park are gravel, and there was a very low-hanging tree at the entrance that needed to be trimmed. I mentioned this to the manager and he claimed the state needs to cut it and should be out soon to do it. We were very busy on this stop and did not get a chance to check out the bathrooms or showers. Grocery stores and the nicest laundromat I've ever used can be found in the town of Moorefield, which is about 6 miles away. The staff was friendly and helpful. The remote location made this a very quiet place to stay.
This is a wonderful RV park with strong water and 50 amp power, large and level sites, and several activities for families. The "primitive" sites are separate from the larger RV sites, either along the river or in another section specifically for tents. It is lush and green throughout, and there are nice paths for walking along the river and around the rest of the property. "Tubing" down the river can be done by renting their inner tubes, purchasing one at the office, or bringing your own. Each site has a table and fire pit, and the office sells wood for a reasonable price. Bathrooms and showers are clean and in good condition. There was no park Wi-Fi, but our Verizon phone signal was strong. Access to the Skyline parkway is about 25 minutes away, and grocery stores are located within 5 miles or so. Access to sites is gravel, and the sites are dirt/gravel. Our jacks did sink into the ground a bit while we were there. This campground is very quiet, being off the main road about a half mile. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet while we were there, along with the beautiful view of mountains all around us. We would definitely come back here, and hope to be able to stay longer next time.
I'm afraid I wasn't thinking "paradise" when we arrived at this park, nor during our stay. This is basically an older trailer park with some spots for transient RV's. My opinion is that several of the former reviewers were generous with their ratings. The park is fairly quiet, being off any main roads. Access is over a "pothole-a-plenty" paved road, and I had to contend with low tree branches scratching my motorhome. This is an item that really bothers me because it can be handled via inexpensive maintenance. So, this issue and several others confirmed that maintenance was sadly lacking here. I was able to get fairly level at my site, but many others were not close to level. Although I had a 50 amp hookup, my meter showed a fluctuating 108 volts, not enough to run my AC. Water pressure was less than 30 psi. The bathrooms and showers were adequate and cleaned daily. The pool and lake access look like they would be fun for kids. Each site had a picnic table and fire pit. This place may be suitable for folks in trailers wanting to visit for short periods, but not for larger units needing decent utilities and site access.
We loved this place. It's small and very quiet, with a few large pull-through sites overlooking a beautiful meadow, and several smaller sites in a tree-covered area. All sites have full hookups and 50 amps, although the water pressure was a little low at 30psi. Plenty of space between sites, and each has a picnic table and fire pit. Verizon phone service was great, with a tower within view of the park. As indicated previously, there is a paved road up to the office, which is the manager's home, then gravel the rest of the way into the park and sites. I am critical of site levelness, and the pull through sites were pretty good - no extra lumber needed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was a severe storm coming through while we were there, and the manager went to each site with tips on what could be done to prepare - very good! Bathrooms and showers were clean, with benches outside of each shower for needed items. The small laundry room had one washer and one dryer only. You can't beat this place for access to the Blue Ridge Parkway, it's about 1/4 mile away. There was a small country farmer's market and a grocery store about 3/4 miles east, and larger stores in Stuart, which is about 14 miles away. There were also 2 wineries - one with an excellent restaurant - about 6 miles north on the Parkway. The $28 daily rate was based on a one-week stay. We would definitely come back here, and recommend it to anyone coming through this area.
This is a very nice park adjacent to Kerr Scott Reservoir, with excellent hiking trails for active folks. Access into the park and sites are paved and the sites are gravel. Not all sites are level, and when the rains hit - your jacks may sink into the ground. Water and electric are strong, and there are easily accessible dumps stations for each of the loops - A and B. We noticed that sites in loop B seem to be spaced closer together, and the cellular signals in that section of the park are weaker. All sites have a picnic table and fire pit. Bathrooms and shower stalls are old, but clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We discovered that there are several sites that are "walk-in only", so they are given out on a first-come-first served basis. This is very helpful when the campground gets busy, as it was most of the week we were there. However, this park somehow seemed fairly quiet even when it was full. There are many large stores and chain restaurants approximately seven miles east of the campground. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.
Staff friendliness and assistance was top-notch at this park. They helped with disconnecting my car and then gave me a tour of the facilities after guiding me to my site and helping me park! Road noise is very loud at the lower-priced sites where we stayed, which are next to highway 150. Spacing between sites is quite limited, although there is room to park cars between units. The sites are concrete and level, but my jacks came down on the edge of the concrete pad since they are "u-shaped" in the area under the coach. Lots of concrete and no trees made for a hot stay when we were there. All sites have picnic tables and full hookups, water and power are strong, cable and Wi-Fi are included. The bathrooms are beautiful and sparkling clean with nice showers. There are 2 washers and 2 dryers in the small but clean laundry room. The open-air beer and wine bar overlooks the lake and is a nice place to meet others. There are no walking trails, unfortunately. Easy access to nearby stores and services, and larger stores can be found 9 miles east in Mooresville. This place is expensive, but the lake view is nice if you can afford it.
This is a nice park with a friendly and helpful staff. I was guided to my site and helped with parking, which was great since my wife was not with me to assist. Trees are plentiful and trimmed well so as not to scrape tall RVs. Roads into the park are paved, then access to the sites and the sites themselves are gravel. The pool is very well maintained, and the bathrooms are nice and sparkling clean. The showers are clean with lots of pressure on adjustable heads, and they have holders for soap and shampoo - yay! The laundry room is small but clean, with 3 washers and 3 dryers. There is a short walking trail around the western border of the park. Noise from I-85 is minimal and the park is generally quiet. Sites are spaced well enough apart, but I must disagree with the reviewer who said they are mostly level. Many are not level enough to easily level up in a motorhome without additional lumber. Each site has a picnic table, no fire pits. There are a lot of shopping and restaurant opportunities within 5 miles of this park. I would definitely stay here again.
Although in a beautiful setting, I cannot recommend this campground - especially for big rigs! Even the campground hosts talk about the lack of maintenance and other problems here. The roads are in bad shape, and most aggravating to me, was the low-hanging branches that scraped the roof, sides and antennas on my RV. They are right over the middle of the road, so unavoidable. Come on, how hard is it to get up there and trim the trees? The apparent "zero maintenance policy" for roads, sites, and trees is a major problem here. Most sites are not even close to level - bring all the lumber you can carry! The water pressure at my site (#27), was abysmal - 20 psi. Hello? That's not even usable so I had to supplement it with my pump during the entire stay. The 30-amp service was good, though, with strong voltage. No sewer, but two very narrow dump stations are available. The sites are closer together than most of the state parks I've been to. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit, and the office sells firewood, which is nice. My amplified MiFi using Verizon worked well, but unamplified reception on my Verizon phone was only one bar. There is no noise from major roads due to the campground's isolation. Bathrooms are old and not cleaned daily. The showers were not so good - no shelves for soap/shampoo, and no privacy at the bench outside of the stall. I didn't like or use them. There are many miles of nice hiking trails and paved roads for bicycling. The staff was friendly. The nearest stores and services I found were in Clover, which is about 11 miles from the campground. Finally, the "no alcohol allowed in the park" rule is ridiculous. I can understand not wanting people walking around the park with alcoholic beverages, but I can't have a glass of wine at my own site or even in my RV? Doesn't work for me. Too bad about this campground. There is a lot of potential if some money were spent to fix it up. Unless that happens, I would not consider returning.
We liked this park and would stay again. The previous reviews are accurate, full hookups are available and the pullthrough sites vary from fairly level to not so good. Views of the beautiful green meadow is nice. Access road and sites are gravel. It appears the long-term tenants are at the front of the park near the road, so there's very little traffic to the short-term folks in the back. The walking paths are fairly short (maybe 2 miles total) but traverse beautiful woodland and run along the river. Not really a place for bike riding, however. We stayed for a week due to the great weekly rate. Most sites have tables and their "community firepits", which are stocked with wood daily, are very nice for meeting people in the evening. Although the office was closed when we arrived, there was a phone there that we used to call the owner and they told us to pick whichever site we liked. Stores are fairly close, in Powdersville, and major stores are up I85 about 12 miles. Don't miss the BMW factory tour about 25 miles north, if you can get a reservation. They book well in advance.
I found it difficult to rate this park, because there are some big positives which are offset by some big negatives as indicated in previous reviews. The positives are that this park resides in a beautiful setting in the trees and around the lake. Many of the sites have views of the lake, and some have views of Stone Mountain. There are several miles of walking trails and biking paths, and the hike up to the top of Stone Mountain is one mile and not to be missed. We were here when it was slow, so of course it was fairly quiet. It's hard to image a 400+ site campground filled up, I'm sure it would be fairly chaotic. Site spacing and length are decent. There are several "comfort buildings" with large and clean bathrooms, and they each have nice showers with benches and good pressure. Three or four of those buildings also have laundry rooms with 4 washers and 4 dryers each. In the negative column are the roads into most of the sections, which are the most hideous paved roads we have seen with potholes and root incursions aplenty. My wife was thrilled that I was able to guide the motorhome to our site without sustaining body damage or emptying the dishes out of the cabinets. Level sites? Forget about it! Many are unusable by most types of RV's, in my opinion. We would not have been able to level in many others. Our site was #346 in section "M", which was a reasonably level pull-through site that overlooked the lake. Sections "F" and "L" seemed to be a little newer with more level sites and decent roads, but not as close to the water. Some sections have full hookups, some without sewer. There are also some nice sites near the front of the park that have decks with propane cookers installed. If possible, we would suggest driving through the park to pick your site if they will allow it. Once we were parked and leveled, the beautiful surroundings somewhat made up for the terrible roads and lack of maintenance. As previously mentioned, the price is high for what you get here, and the $10 just to get into the park doesn't help.
If you're looking for a nice spot next to the lake under the trees, look no further than this park. It was quiet and the weather was nice while we were here, which always makes a place more enjoyable. Of course, not all sites are next to the water, and some sections have only 30-amp service with water. There are no sewer hookups, but dump stations are available. We stayed at site #111 in the #103-112 section, which is at the end of the road and receives less traffic than other areas of the park. There are sections dedicated just to groups of tents or RV's which is nice. Unfortunately, many sites throughout the park are not even close to level, which is important to us with a large motorhome and caused our rating to drop. All sites are paved, spacious, and have a fire pit and picnic table. We got fairly good Verizon service to our phones and MiFi. Bathrooms and showers are clean. The showers are small, and I wish they would add some shelves for shampoo and soap. The building near our section had one washer and one dryer. There are a couple of short walking trails that are nice, and several miles of paved roads that can be walked or biked. Major stores and the main part of LaGrange are about 10 miles away.
This has instantly become one of our favorite parks. Similar to a state park, this reasonably priced Army Corps of Engineers (COE) park is within a beautiful forested area around a lake. As previously posted, there are two major areas within this park. The older Antioch loop is more "rustic", with some sites not level and all without sewer, but it has its own charm and we wouldn't mind staying there at all. It is also limited to 30-amp service. Some of the sites we saw that were level, spacious and very nice even for large rigs were #97, #99 and #101 which are all near the lake. Also #88, #124 and #128 were nice, but not as close to the water. There are several other good ones. We stayed at the Catoma loop, which is newer with long concrete pads, full hookups and very generous spacing between sites. Overall this is a quiet and beautiful campground off the beaten path. Showers are clean, hot and powerful. There are laundry rooms with 2 washers and 2 dryers within each loop. There is only one short dedicated walking path, but the road is quiet enough that a long walk or bike ride around the park is easy. The nearest large grocery store is approximately 9 miles away.
This is a beautiful park located next to Big Lagoon on Perdido Cove. The most expensive sites were right on the marina facing the water, we stayed in site #9. We really enjoyed watching the boats, dolphins, and pelicans cruising by. All sites are reasonably sized and spaced apart, and the laundry, bathroom and shower facilities were clean and worked well. The shower is a large room located off the bathroom, separated by a locking door. It was very nice and I actually looked forward to using it. Each site had a good picnic table. The nearest grocery store and gas station are across the bridge, approximately 1.5 miles away. Distance to the Naval Aviation Museum is about 10 miles, and it is a must-see. There are also several walking trails and some very good restaurants in the immediate area. The noise from vehicle traffic crossing the bridge did not bother us, but the Navy jets passing over to land at NAS on weekdays was pretty bad. I'm a pilot and usually enjoy watching approaching jets, but as most folks know military jets are extremely LOUD. This was the only drawback I can think of for this park.
This is a nice park with level concrete pads for the RV, and picnic tables included. Site spacing is typical for a park of this size, not real wide, but long enough to fit a 40' motorhome and car. We were unable to fit into the first site assigned to us due to tree branches, but the staff was very helpful and gave us another site that worked out fine. The interior roads are paved and two-way. WiFi is available, but we brought our own so not sure about the speed. The bathrooms/showers are individual rooms and clean. The laundry rooms have very old machines, but they appear to work fine. Although this park is near a busy road, we were far enough back in the park that it was not a concern. You may want to consider this, though. There is also a fire station right next door, but not a busy one. We really liked the direct access to a paved bike/walking path that runs 3.8 miles to the west and all around Gulf Shores to the east. Grocery stores, banks and a mall are an easy 2-mile drive away, as is access to the beach and good restaurants. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. Although many people were staying here for several months, we did not see any older, run down "permanent" sites.
We really loved this place. Most sites are right at the edge of the lake, with a few pull-throughs just off the water. There is a small fee to fish here, but no license required. We met a man who showed us two beautiful large mouth bass he had just caught. Lots of birds around for my wife to photograph, and several walking trails surround the lakes. Really good Cajun food is available about 2 miles down the road at Poche's Market. We stayed for only a week, but this is one of those parks where we would spend much more time when we are back in the area.
Not sure where that last review came from, but our arrival at this park was met by the owner coming outside to greet us, then actually stopping traffic on the road so we could pull out to access our site! This is a small campground with a nice pool and clean laundry room. The bathrooms are individual rooms with clean showers in each. It's just a short walk across the street to the pier and beach for excellent photo ops. We will be here for a week this time, but will definitely be back for a longer stay!
