This was our second time staying at this campground this year; Passport America rate, cash only. Convenient for an overnight stay off I-10. (We stayed in a pull through -- site 4 behind the gas station.) Easy access from freeway; we were not bothered by any traffic noise. Essentially a big field rimmed on two sides with campsites. We would stay here again for an overnight stop.
We stayed at this campground for three nights. Our primary reason for being in the area was to have work done at the RV Service of Virginia, which is three miles from this campground. We opted for a gravel site in Loop E, which is further from the freeway from where the concrete pad sites are located, and thus not as much traffic noise from the freeway. The campground is heavily treed, but we had no problems getting into our pull-through site. The staff in the office were friendly and helpful, and refunded our last night's fee when we opted to leave a day early. There is a conveniently located truck stop before the turn to Air Park Road for those needing to top-off on diesel. If we're in the area again, we would stay here.
Short and sweet. After staying 5 nights (2 in non-lakefront), we booked to come back for a month in July. Beautiful manicured grounds and friendly helpful owner/manager. Ownership campground, but available for short term rentals for transients.
Stayed O/N en route from SC to VA via I-85. (Only campground in the area that is close to the freeway.) Sites are tight, but decent enough for an O/N stay, although the coach next to us was obviously set up for a long stay. We were unable to get level with our onboard leveling system. Tried two sites, and decided to just put the front tires on blocks and leave it at that. Free Wi-Fi available, but iffy in the upper section where we were located. This section is the farthest from the freeway and therefore quiet (no traffic noise could be heard inside the coach). Would stay here again if we are in the area and ready to get off the road for the day.
While the campground is great, with some really nicely spaced sites, we probably won't stay here again unless we happen to be in the area when the gnats aren't biting. Still, I have to give them kudos for how well they came back after damaging hurricanes like Katrina, and more recently, Isaac. Rebuilding of some of the amenities were ongoing, but it did not impact our stay. We would have rated this campground much higher if not for the biting gnats we encountered during our two-week stay in April. We were unable to take full advantage of our great site because it was near impossible to sit outside. Within the first few days, my husband was bit so bad that his arms and legs looked like he had chicken pox. Eventually, we managed to sit in our screened shelter for a few hours each day with the help of a couple of big fans we purchased from Wal-Mart to create a cross-breeze to keep the gnats at bay. Nice long stretches of beach within walking distance (might be a long walk for some), and a wide walking/biking path heads in the direction of Waveland along a stretch of the beach. The Sound may not be inviting to swim in for people used to Gulf waters, but the beach is great for walking. Bay St. Louis is well worth exploring; don't forget to check out the Katrina trees. Trains rumble by tooting their horns throughout the day. It didn't bother us, but might be a problem for some.
We stayed here in a lakefront site for two weeks in May. Loved the entire experience and the only reason we're not rating it a 10 is the lack of sewer hook-ups. Normally we don't consider this a problem, but with the extreme high temps we experienced off and on throughout our stay, it would have been nice to be able to dump our tanks every few days. Otherwise, we had a fantastic, quiet stay. Even though the campground was at full occupancy over the Memorial Day long weekend, it was quiet. There are no playgrounds or other amenities for kids, and swimming in the lake is not a good idea because of the alligators. This might have contributed to a quieter holiday weekend experience since there were few families with kids. The campground has an acknowledged ant problem (Argentine ants), but we had read about this and went prepared. We sprayed anything that touched the ground and also created a perimeter around the site with bait granules. Did not have any problems with ants on the pad. A neighboring site, though they sprayed, was not as lucky and their coach was invaded by ants. A contributing factor to their problem might have been that they had large get-togethers with other campers at their site that involved careless cooking and eating outside. Nearest town is Chatahoochee, FL. Basic groceries available in this town, but expensive. Bainbridge, GA and Quincy and Marianna, FL are twenty to thirty miles away and offer plentiful stores and restaurants for those needing a break from the campground. We would stay here again.
That this campground is remote goes without saying. Nonetheless, we loved staying here and would do so again. We swapped our river view pull through for a first-come first-served lake front back-in and drove into the site face-first to enjoy the peaceful view (you need to have enough hose and electric cable length to do so, but it was oh so worth it). A great campground to just chill - great for those who like to fish. We left a day early to get ahead of a storm that was heading in the direction of our next campground, and the hosts were very understanding and refunded the last day's camping fee without us having to ask them.
We stayed here for 14 nights. Our first site was in Loop A. Trees make getting into some of the sites difficult, but we had scoped out the park in advance and had picked site A14 accordingly. Needed to adjust the position of the RV so that branches did not hinder opening the driver side slides. The power pedestal went on the fritz a few hours after we arrived. We notified the host and used the pedestal for the empty site next to us overnight. The next day, we were given a list of back-up sites to choose from. Chose a site in Loop C, which we liked better. It was more open. There were no trees to make maneuvering difficult, but if all sites are filled, some sites might be difficult to get into with a big rig. Tows must be parked on the pad; no parking on the grass or in empty sites (monitored by the hosts). Overflow for tow and other vehicles available. Loved the easy access (across the road) to the sugar white sand beaches of the Gulf and to Pensacola Bay on the opposite side. Fort Pickens is an easy beach stroll away, and the NPS gives a nice tour of the fortifications (only program available when we were there). We would most definitely stay there again.
We stayed here for two weeks and loved this campground. Lots of big rig friendly sites, though some of them might be a challenge to get into due to the narrow roads and the trees. Some sites are close together, but several are very spacious. Wi-fi available; strong signal near the campground store where there are tables available nearby for those who can't get a signal from their own site. Loved being close to the beach, but I'd be wary of booking a waterfront site as the shore is being slowly eroded by the sea, and some of those sites could be prone to flooding during storms or high tide. Plenty of trails to walk, and the lighthouse is now open again and can be climbed. We would definitely stay here again.
Right off I-95, this Passport America park is just the thing for an overnight stop. At $15 (50% off PA rate) the 50 amp FHU site is a bargain. There was a bit of interstate noise, but not enough to be bothersome. The front-row sites are great for an overnight stay; no need to unhook the toad. We'd stay here again, even for more than a night to explore sights of interest in the surrounding area.
Convenient campground for overnight stays. (We stayed 2 nights in a pull through -- site 6 behind the gas station.) Easy access from freeway; were not bothered by traffic noise. Essentially a big field rimmed on two sides with campsites. Some shabby mobile homes. Check electric pedestal to confirm power before setting up; first site we pulled into did not have a working pedestal. Got 4G cell/internet with our Novatel mi-fi (Verizon svc). If you can't receive signal, move vehicle a foot or two in either direction. No problems with DirecTV satellite access; also received local channels with antenna.
