Stayed two days to explore the area. Very nice park. Clean, well kept and friendly. Big rigs should find half the sites usable, a few pull through sites might be tricky. They are addressing some shoreline erosion with riprap so much of the natural shoreline is disappearing, but it will make the camp sites secure.

Nice paved camping area amongst the fair ground buildings and surrounded by lawn and trees. Roller skating 100 feet away. Downtown Marietta is a two minute drive away. Big rig friendly with level sites. Woodalls says there are 40 water and electric sites. We noted many sites very close to the river.

Very nice shady park. The campsites may challenge the bigger rigs. Sites are paved but heavily surrounded by trees and shrubs. Power pedestals are not at sites, they are shared and can be anywhere from 25' to 100' away. Nice lake and beach. We travel with no kids, but we did notice they have a nice up to date play set near the camping and more equipment near the beach. Only marks off are for the slightly dated bathhouse. Typical for most Michigan State parks.

Pay showers ??? Not real happy after heading all the way down for a quick shower and undressing only to find I need quarters. Otherwise this site is nice, albeit there are few things to do. They are close to shopping, the Christmas store and Frankenmuth. Level, shady, and easy to maneuver. Full hook ups. But do bring quarters. They'd get an 8 otherwise.

We were traveling through to Michigan west coast and this is a good stopping point. Park was crowded for mid week. Sites were level and easy to maneuver.

Improvements coming along, but there is a lot lacking, especially shade. Much of the place was under construction. Mostly gravel and dirt, and level.

Crowded, noisy, and rumors of a big fight the night before. Hey, it's a party place with plenty of drinking, barking dogs, and noise. Fairly level, shady, and asphalt roads breaking up. Big rigs could be challenged.

Park is set between two lakes with a boating channel between them. Looked like good fishing. Level, bigger rigs and a mix of shady and sunny. Close access to lakes with many water front sites with docks.

Nice park. We stayed in Pine campground, we had a site backed up to the dunes that allowed us to walk a thousand feet straight to the water, albeit up and down some steep dunes. Nice 1.5 mile walk to the lighthouse. Walk north to it along the beach. Beaches are beautiful up there. I don't think we saw one dead fish in 12 miles of beaches we walked. Sites are fairly level, mostly hard packed sand.

We stayed at the lakefront site a mile or so north of the riverfront site. Lucked out with a very nice walk-up site 200' from the beach. Sites were un-level hard packed sand and very shady just behind the dunes. Nice stairs to beach.

We picked this place because of the friendly staff and the gravel sites. We have had a lot of rain and there isn't a puddle anywhere. There is a stream around the site and plenty of things to do. Internet and cable were not extras. For an over nite stop before heading out to the battlefield, this is the spot. The beginning of the auto tour, where the battle began northwest of town, is minutes away.

Nice mountain top campsite with a beautiful lake and beach. We only spent the nite, but it looked like it was a pleasant getaway. A bit of a climb. If you are coming in from the west on Rt 30 they said it was safe to drive in on Aughwick road at the summit between Ft Loudon and McConnellsburg. We would have saved about 8 miles that way. We are ADA campers and they did not have non pet ADA site so we were forced to pay a premium (added pet fee) for an ADA site near a restroom. PA should look into this policy, they need to offer equal accommodations for ADA campers without charging premiums. Lower rating was only because of this issue, 10's otherwise.

Disappointing, little to do, pit toilets with only a dozen or so good site which were taken.

Prior review is pretty accurate, but the rate they mentioned were way off. We paid $18 with tax per nite and the $7 entry fee is good for the week, not a daily fee. This park is great and has something for everyone. Great sites and great views. Planned on one nite, stayed two.

Very nice small state park half way between St Louis and Springfield close to the Route 66 right of way. We planned a one day stay and ended up there three nights. Friendly hosts, kid friendly, nice hiking trails, with 1.7 mile hike around the lake. Restaurant is nice, try their home made pies. Plenty to do 7 miles to the north in Carlinville.

By far the best park we have visited. BEAUTIFUL. You take a 12 mile drive out and around a thin peninsula 8 miles off the Florida mainland. There is a gas station, stores and a few businesses out there. The Gulf Breeze camp is 59 site just feet from the sand dunes and beach. The white sand beach is about 15 miles long, with 7 miles of it beyond the edge of the park to the tip of the peninsula. They allow primitive camping ($5 per day) and/or hiking into the last seven miles of white sand and dunes. This and/or St George State Park to the east are worth the slight detour.

Nice park, but do call to get the gate code if you are late arriving. We lucked out and got someone to open up for us after the office closed. Clean, safe, with a tropical feel and nice coastal views.

By-pass this one. Everything about it is suspect. 4 hours of internet; cable TV only has 2 or 3 stations that are not full of snow and unwatchable; the tacked on a "resort fee" that they didn't quote over the phone. Our first site had no cable TV, no Wi-Fi reception, but there was a tiny picnic table that was falling apart. By the time we found out we had to move, the office staff was gone for the night, at 4 PM!!! We moved to a second site without help from the park staff, that was next to the Wi-Fi modem and still had limited cable and internet. Both sites were not level even though they were concrete. They seem to cater to long termer and really don't get many one nighters.

Rate has a small discount. Office was very friendly and informative, very nice park. Most sites have a slight sideways slope but we pulled in level in the second site we tried. Vicksburg is a nice town and everything is minutes away. I wish more cities had "urban" RV parks.

Nice stop off between Nashville and Memphis. About 15 gentle winding miles south of I-40. Very pleasant but it was a bit cold and we arrived after dark so we didn't see much of the area. Do think about the trip into Lexington, it is a friendly little town 10 miles southwest of the RV park.

Very nice site with a friendly staff. Clean restrooms with plenty of heat and hot water. Smaller sites but enough space for the biggest rigs. And once you are at Graceland, who is going to spend much time "camping". It is a short walk to Graceland, the shops and the Heartbreak Hotel that plays Elvis documentaries most of the time. We have a Lexington 210 and were able to drive it down to Beale Street for the day. That is a 12 mile trip.

Very nice park along a nice lake, we got one of several sites are right on the lake. There are 4 or 5 walk-in sites on the water. There are NO real trails to walk, but the park owns a 10 to 15 foot strip of land along the water and walking between the lake and private cottages is permitted. We walked about a mile and a half to the left toward the dam and saw some beautiful views.

Quiet and isolated. Drive in could be a problem for bigger units. Campsite is on top of a small round top hill. There was a trail that circles the campsite that was actually the boundary between the hunt-no hunt areas of the park, in other words it was the firing line. We passed a couple of hunters during our evening hike. Enjoyed our stay but we were really glad the park office had flush toilets and hot water.

It is a long drive through the park to get to the camp sites. You don't want to have to run into town very often. Very clean and well cared for. We found a nice site with lots of shade that was close to several trails.
