This is an example of a park that is so close to a higher rating, but misses the details. We had no problems getting a full hookup site without a reservation. The sites are decent, with long and level pull through. However, there is no privacy between sites, just a grassy strip with a picnic table. There are two saplings on each site, so in 10 to 15 years there will be some shade trees and a bit of privacy. There are numerous waterfront sites, but they are reserved for seasonal only. It would be nice if some of them could be used by vacationers, even if a minimum stay was required. Each site has a nice steel garbage can, but ours was full when we arrived. And at this price, I expect cable TV. There is a lovely pool, but it costs 10 dollars, plus tax, to use. For the price of the night, I expect to be able to take a nice, cooling dip after a hot drive. The park is next to a secondary highway, so there is some traffic noise. We found it on par with many of the parks along the interstates. It wasn't enough to keep us from sleeping, even with the windows and a vent open. However, tolerance to noise is an individual thing. In short, 68 dollars is a lot for an overnight site, the park doesn't provide enough resort services for the money to justify a longer stay.
Normally I would give a park with this level of facilities an 8, but the attitude and attention to detail make it a 9. We arrived with no reservation, but the staff were quick to help us find a site that met our needs. We elected water/electric over full service since it was just for one night and the site was a bit more private. The gravel pad was so level that, even hooked up, the trailer was level in both directions. The site was spacious and well groomed, though the whole park lacks in trees. Good power, good water, great cable. The entire park is immaculate. The grounds are lovely, and they take great pride in their bathrooms and showers (which I use, in the interest of marital bliss). Even the sewage dump is clean, with soap and paper towels to wash up afterwards. There is a small family diner next door, with decent down home food, and a discount for campers. If they added more shade trees, and installed a pool, this would be a 10! We will definitely return next time that we are in the Bangor area.
We stayed here for one night while traveling I-95. The staff were very helpful and friendly and had no problems accommodating us without a reservation. The park caters mostly to seasonal campers, who occupy about 3/4 of the sites. Most of the sites were well treed, and the park was very quiet and dark, making for a great sleep. The downside of the wooded sites were some very tricky corners, and backing in my 34' RV was a challenge. Once in, the site was big enough to stay hooked up for the night. Nice. Why a 7? Some, but not all, of the units in the seasonal sites are in disrepair, which always detracts for us. No sewer is available, and there is a fee to use the dump unless you stay two nights. Water is available, but only through a garden hose sized connection. The WiFi isn't provided by the park, it is provided by a few kind seasonal campers who open their network to others. It worked well, but seemed a bit weird, as this seems to be the camp's chosen method to provide WiFi. Finally, our site was busy with mosquitoes and deer flies, but that's nature.
We stayed here travelling north from Virginia to Maine. RV parks are scarce along the route, especially after reading some of the reviews here. So we didn't mind a 20 minute detour off of the interstate to find a nice park. We were not disappointed. This is a resort park, with lots of activities and facilities, and is reflected in the price. We were looking for something private and quiet for our night, and the staff readily accommodated us by placing us in a site far from the pools and playgrounds. The site was large and quiet. The seasonal units were all well taken care of and neat. The only detractions were no WiFi, and the water connection was at the front of the site, so I had to be careful to position my unit but still needed 50' of water hose forward and 20' of sewer hose back. Word of warning: the rural drive to the park is not well signed and the county won't let the park put any up. The GPS was invaluable. We would return.
We stayed here during our pack and load out, since it was the closest park to our home. It was clean and well-cared for. Some of the sites, including ours, were too close for privacy. In addition, water is shared between two sites, necessitating the one on the right (us) having to run 50' of water hose under the unit to a pedestal almost under the awning. Finally, some of the full time and seasonal residents have let their units deteriorate or have surrounded them with tarps, tents, etc. This is always a detractor for us. We would stay here again if we had to be in the area, but likely not for vacation.
We stayed here one night each way while traveling I-95 to and from Florida. It is an excellent highway stop, easy access from 95, and large, level sites that let us stay hooked up for the night. The staff are excellent, as are the facilities. I wouldn't plan a week-long vacation here, but I don't think that's the target audience. We will stay again.
This was our second stay here. Most of the sites are great; large and wide. There are a few that are tight together, but we managed to avoid those. The pool is much larger than normal, and I even manage to swim lengths in it. It is very quiet at night, and you can hear the lions from the Safari Park next door. The park is very well a managed, and the staff work hard to help out with any requests. The only negative comment is that the park is very focussed on seasonal campers, so getting a specific site during the winter vacation can be hard, even when reserving well in advance.
We stayed here while visiting my snowbird parents over the holidays. It is hard to find a good RV park in the Ft Lauderdale area, but this one met our needs. On the upside, it is close to everything in the Ft Lauderdale area. The grounds are clean and well maintained. The paved sites are private and large. Finally, the staff were excellent. The only negative was the age of the older bath house. It is well past its prime and, though clean, it is in poor repair. The new one is better, but still not to the standard of many private parks. Two observations. One, the trains. Yes, they are nearby. And they make noise, which peaks weekdays during rush hours, when the commuter trains are running. However, at night, with the windows closed and the a/c running, we found it no louder than a diesel dually or a Harley passing our site, which happens almost any night in almost any campground. It never woke us, and was a small price to pay for a great location. Second, because the campground is in a larger city park, with picnic areas, playgrounds, etc, it is open to the public during daylight hours. Security was never a problem, as staff are there all day, and there is a gate guard checking for campground passes at night. However, we did see several people clearly living in a couple of old vans, who spent the days in the picnic area. They never bothered us when we were camping, walking the dogs, or running. They kept to themselves. It was more sad than worrisome. Overall, this will be our go-to campground when we visit the area.
We stayed here for one night on our way to S Florida, and we wanted to see a bit of St Augustine. The park was okay, with a mix of some private but mostly open sites. Some of the seasonal or permanent residents have allowed their units to fall into a poor state, which is always a negative for us. Bath houses are very important, as I tend to use them, in the interest of marital bliss. While the one near us was dated, it was immaculate and had excellent showers. The park is close to I-95 And to the old city, so it is very convenient.
This was our second time staying here. It is not a vacation destination, but a stop on I-95 South. It can be a bit muddy in the rain, and things are getting a bit dated. However, for an easy on and off the highway, and clean pull-through sites that let you stay hooked up, it is fine.
We loved this park! We have never stayed in a park where the sites are individually owned, and were pleasantly surprised. 90% of the owners take a great deal of pride in the landscaping and appearance of their sites, and it shows. We chose a waterfront site, which is $15 more per night than an interior site. It was lovely to take our coffee to the dock each morning. The place was very quiet and very pet friendly (we travel with two small dachshunds). I usually shower in the camp facilities, and they were a bit dated but very clean. The only downside to the park was the Wi-Fi. The transmitters are only about 6' high so, when a big rig parked next to the nearest one, between us and the antenna, we lost all signal. We will return.
We stayed here on our way north from Hilton Head. A very nice, clean campground, although a little too open for our tastes, if we were vacationing. We arrived at about 3 p.m. and were given a spot right next to the only other occupied spot in the section. We asked, and were permitted to move a couple of sites over. However three hours later the park was 80% full with rigs headed south. Even though they are no longer a KOA, they still honor the 10% discount for members, as well as AAA, Good Sam, and military. We will use this park again for an easy, clean stop along I-95.
This is one of our favourite campgrounds. The staff are great and always helpful. The park is well maintained and very clean. Our only (minor) complaint is that they keep trying to put us into large, pull-thru sites, that aren't very private. After asking, they then put us into a smaller back-in, easy enough with just a 22' TT. We will stay here again.
