Was very disappointed in this park. Photos you see on their web site are not what the park actually looks like. Roads are extremely narrow, tight turns, low hanging branches and wires. Roads are very rutted and hard to negotiate. At one point, I had to get up on top of our 42 ft. 5th wheel with a broom to lift low hanging wires off our AC units. Check-in is at the small convenience store/gas station. No one accompanied us to our site, and there is no map of the park for "self navigation". Lots of rundown mobile homes, rundown RVs, junk cars, etc. sitting around. Clientele left a lot to be desired. Intended to stay overnight, but left after circling the park in an attempt to find our site. Would not recommend this park at all. It was easy to find off the main road.

Very small RV park conveniently located between Lake Greeson and Crater of Diamonds. Park itself is pretty easy to get to. Roads are rather narrow, gravel covered, and turns are a little tight if you have a large rig. Water, sewer, and electric were easily accessible, but sewer connection was uphill and had an above ground cap, which made connecting difficult and therefore sewer line didn’t drain well. Leveling was tough as site leaned on the right. Grounds were nicely kept, and there was horseshoes and deck shuffleboard. Little to no place to walk pets on grassy area. Had to walk outside the park near main road. Manager/owner somewhat gruff, not very professional in dress style when dealing face to face with customers (could have used some top undergarments). We did not the use “al fresco” showering or restrooms. Satellite reception was OK if you could get beyond the tree line. It’s somewhat out of the way if you are just passing through, but if you want to visit the Lake (which was gorgeous!) or Crater of Diamonds, it’s an OK park.

This is an "OK" RV park. It was a little hard to find, but once we found it, we were fine. Only had about 25% of campsites full. Park is run by a delightful couple. All sites appeared to have full hookups. Sites are on grass and with recent rains, there were several low lying areas that held water and made for a muddy trek. View of Lake Marion was gorgeous! We peeked in the shower/restrooms, and they are very outdated. No AC or fans to help move humid air. There is a pier that you can fish from. Once inside the park, the roads were dirt and sand, and had lots of ruts. Plenty of shade trees with Spanish moss. Campground itself could use some "cleaning up". The site we were in contained lots of cigarette butts and squash peelings. As non-smokers, we found this somewhat annoying. Of the other camping units in the park, most were older, and appeared to have been there for quite some time. Lots of areas contained goose poop so be care where you walk. Upon arrival, there was a sign posted on a tree stating "no big dogs". Website does not say anything about pets, so ask first. Campground also has a boat launch and small floating dock. Roads are difficult to negotiate as trees are not trimmed and hang over dirt roads in park. Park looks somewhat rundown; however, owners are very friendly and accommodating. If cleaned up some, and a few rules regarding campers cleaning up after themselves were put into place, this would be a really nice park, right on Lake Marion. It's very out of the way, so it would be nice if staying a few days or more, but for overnight, it's somewhat inconvenient.

Very small campground right next to a rather busy road. Not exactly big rig friendly as roads are narrow and rutted, and turns are tight. Looks like there were long term campers that are rather beat up. Place is also a repo center for what appeared to be FEMA trailers. Sites were uneven and very close together. Water/sewer/electric were adequate but dated. Did not use the restroom, showers or laundry facilities. No cable or Wi-Fi service. Site we had was littered with cigarette butts. Park needed to be cleaned up, grass cut, etc. Would stay overnight in an emergency, but not long term.

Rate reflected a Good Sam discount. Nice RV park right on the Mississippi River. Park flooded heavily in 2011, and has since been rebuilt. Nice wide turns, and easily accessible long sites. Water/sewer/electric were all easily accessible. Some sites are concrete pads, very level. There are shaded sites, but those are further from the view of the river. Park is off the beaten path, and a little difficult to find, but if you follow their signs, you do better than the GPS instructions. Park personnel are very nice, and escort you to your site. (For us, that is always a plus in the customer service dept!) Pet friendly, and there are two small ponds to fish. We would stay here again in our 42 ft rig.

Newly added RV park on the military base. All sites were level concrete pads with picnic tables and fire rings to BBQ or have a fire. Very Big rig friendly. Quiet. Accepts reservations. Must make reservations through MWR, which is not near campground. Must arrive before MWR closes so you can get key to unlock your electic and water. MWR office is on Swan Creek Rd, just past the police station on Aberdeen St. Be aware you will need to use the 715 gate as the main gate off Rt. 40 is only open 0500 to 1900 Mon-Fri. Campground is off Patriot Way where the former mobile home park on post used to be. Watch for deer as they wander all times of day and night.

Rate reflects military discount. Ok RV park. Not much available off I-71 between Louisville, KY and Cincinnati, OH. It's relatively easy to find, but suggest you call ahead for a reservation. Only has 5 pull through sites that accommodate large rigs, and they were full by 6PM. Once inside park, turns are very tight and roadways are narrow. Many of the RVs appear to have been there a while with "decks and sheds". Although "pet friendly", not a lot of places to walk your pet for potty breaks. Water and electricity were relatively easy to get to, electrical connection was OK. Good if you are just passing through, but wouldn't want to stay a while.

Nice military campground. Pull thru sites are long and relatively level. Fair amount of room between sites. Walking distance to Bass Lake for fishing. W/S/E was easily accessible. Yes, Reveille was sounded at 0730, but its a military base folks! Yes we were close to runway, but there was minimal take offs and landings on Friday, and none over the weekend. Unlike Dover AFB where they are flying 24/7 and practicing "touch and goes". Family camp is a little hard to find, especially if you arrive on the weekend. Gate openings are limited. Recommend you ask for a map of the base upon arrival. Campground is quiet and MPs routinely drive through. Did not use bathhouse or laundry facilities. Campground is big rig friendly, with turn arounds. Grounds well kept. Would stay again.

Stayed at this park overnight while enroute north. Park seems to be an older park, but is in the process of being updated. Some sites were grass and gravel, others packed gravel, ground was soft and we left ruts in gravel and grass due to recent rains. Small amounts of Standing water on outside perimeter of park. Nice shade trees, and newly constructed office/multipurpose bldg. Access is a little tricky as there is construction on the bridges directly in front of the property (should be done in a few months). Pull thru sites were only 30 amp, 50 amp rigs have to back in. Backing in is a little snug, but doable. Folks are really nice, and very helpful. Rate of $25 was reasonable. Roads are somewhat narrow for large rigs, and are packed gravel. Looks like they are working on fixing the park up. Only caution is the freight trains that run beside the property. VERY loud locomotives all hours. If you are in your coach with AC on, noise is minimal. Did not go into new multipurpose bldg, so don't know if there is washer/dryer, playroom, etc. Pet friendly but you must pick up after your pet. Whoever stay at our site prior to us didn't clean up after their dog. Would stay again if need be.

Slightly outside of town, but worth the drive. Nice RV park with long concrete slabs, angled to pull in and out without tearing up the grounds. Full hookups, up to date and easily accessible. Fair amount of space between sites. Appeared to be a few long term folks, but areas are well kept. Very big rig friendly, staff very nice. Park is small, but plenty of room for turns. Pond is stocked and private so no license required. Great for overnight or a few days. Would stay here again. We were in a 42' toyhauler with 2 min pins and a German Shepherd.

Great place for overnighters. Very "no frills" but worked out great. Hook ups are new and up to date. Sites are packed gravel and relatively level. Even though it's close to I-40, you really don't hear the traffic especially if you are in your coach with the AC on. Walking distance to a Food Giant and restaurants. Once you get off interstate, turn right at first light. Ole Sawmill Cafe is behind hotel, and you really don't see it until you make the turn. Small road sign and you must be looking for it, or you will miss it. Check in at the Ole Sawmill Cafe, they will direct you to the site. Once we got settled, we walked back to the Ole Sawmill Cafe for dinner. Food was good, and staff very accommodating. Nighttime had area well lit, and no one bothered us. Owner stopped by in AM to thank us for staying. We will definitely stay here on our return trip south. Very big rig friendly as we were in a 42' toyhauler and had plenty of room to maneuver. Overall, would recommend park for local attractions or overnights.

Easy park to get to, just a mile off I-10. Only stayed overnight. Park is small, but packed gravel roadways are easy to navigate in a large rig. Owner is very friendly. Park seemed to have a few permanent residents, but mostly 25' - 42' size rigs that appeared to be vacationers or just passing through. Pull through sites are gravel and a little close together, but not as close as some of the more expensive parks in Florida. Pull through sites are plenty long enough to handle large rigs. Hook ups were easily accessible and functioned properly. Very quiet park. Also, this park is pet friendly. However, numerous sago palms throughout. Pet owners beware: sago palms are very toxic to dogs. (Male plants produce tiny black seeds that when eaten can cause severe toxicity and liver disease. Recommend you research "sago palms" for how to identify the plant and more information. 3-4 seeds could be fatal to small dogs.) In spite of the plants, we would stay here again.

We stayed here from Sept until mid-Nov 2012. Park is mostly fixed trailer type units that belong to snow birds. All sites are extremely close together. There was little to no parking your tow vehicle in the same site as your coach. Parking throughout whole place is extremely limited, but there is an overflow lot at the front of the park. Maneuverability with a dually towing a 42 ft. Fifth wheel was very tight (but doable). Site we were on was a back in site. Site also backed up to a holding pond of some sort as part of the cemetery next door. humid weather was a breeding ground for the mosquitoes and other flying critters. Water hookup was adequate, electric was old and could use updating. Site was not paved. Pull through sites were paved, but still very close together. Laundry facilities were dated, and washers could use updating. Dryers ran extremely hot, you had to watch them or they would burn your clothes. Mailboxes available if you want, mailbox and gate key required a $30 deposit (which you get back upon checkout). Shopping, restaurants, etc. was very close/accessible. Did not use pool or bath facilities. Manager was very standoffish, and not overly friendly. Had two occurrences of someone trying to break into our truck bed, and people 3 doors away fought loudly and often. Probably wouldn't stay here again unless there was nothing else available.

Ok - to nice park. Sites are very level and extra long. Full hook ups available and overnighters were parked in a center field. Numerous long term residents. Very convenient off the interstate, easy to access with big rigs. Only stayed overnight, but would stay here again. Office staff was very friendly. Quiet.

Nice RV park, just off interstate I-10 in Mobile. Owner/manager was very accommodating. Pull through sites were long, relatively wide, gravel base, and pretty level. W/S/E very accessible. Lots of what appeared to be permanent residents, but overall park was clean and nice. Did not use amenities as we only stayed overnight. It rained all night but there were no puddles, so the area was well drained. Good place to spend the night if you are just passing through.

Nice state park, but not easy to navigate in large rig. Turns are extremely tight, very narrow roadway once you get to the physical campground area. Trees border the road and seem to be right where you need to drive your tow vehicle to make the turn without taking your awning off! Only 2 pull through sites, both of which are on corners and are nearly "L" shaped which makes it very hard for turning and maneuvering into the site. After two trips around the campground loop, we found site 27 to be the most accommodating for our 41' toy hauler. There was open space next to the road which allowed us to pull forward and back in, plus it was a concrete pad. Park was very quiet and serene. Only stayed overnight so did not check out the amenities. Folks with coaches 35' and under would probably be able to negotiate turns, but would not recommend park for anything longer. Info on Florida State parks website is a little misleading. Manager/park ranger was very nice. For this reason, am rating this as a 5 due to tightness of turns, roadway width and maneuverability.

Very nice RV park! Exceptionally clean and very well maintained. Nice wide turns for big rigs, concrete slab pads, reasonably level. Very easy to get to, as it is just off I-10. Gated entrance but someone here late to meet you. Staff very nice and friendly. Laundry room clean and spacious with lots of washers/dryers. E/W/S was very accessible. Good Wi-Fi signal and lots of cable channels. Pull through sites are long and angled for easy entry and exit. Would stay here again. Only stayed one night as just passing through.

Our price reflects disabled vet/military. Relatively nice park, although somewhat off the beaten path if you are just "over-nighting it" (like we were). Park is about 10 miles off I-65. Paved roads once you turn into the park, however, turns are a little tight if you are towing a big rig (40' fifth wheel). Once inside park, sites themselves are nice, some paved, water and electric is easily accessible. Handicap sites are not shaded but are long and relatively level. Be aware the "Camper Check In" hut at entrance to camping area DOES NOT take credit cards. Appeared to have kid stuff (playground, bike riding etc.). Would stay again if spending a few days.

Very nice park. Owners extremely accommodating. We were able to get a spot at the height of their busy season. W/E/S easy to get to and worked beautifully. We were right across from pool and hot tub/spa. Our site was very long, but extremely narrow. Could not open our window awning on our LR slide without hitting neighbor. Could only open full awning if site next to us was empty. Less than 5 feet of walking space between sites. Nice laundry facilities, heated pool, spa, bocce courts, deck shuffleboard and paved roads for bike riding. Very convenient to shopping, attractions, beaches, restaurants. Except for proximity of sites, it's a nice park. Would stay again if just for a few nights.

Relatively nice KOA. Sites were rather close together and set in trees on gravel pads. Length was questionable as we had a 40' 5th wheel. Trailer and tow vehicle had us edge to edge on the site. Park is extremely hilly. We barely fit in the pull through site they assigned to us. Sites are relatively level considering the terrain. Did not use bathroom or shower facilities. Pool looked nice but didn't use. Husband did fish in pond but didn't catch anything. We did see a guy across the pond catch a rather large fish, probably 12-14" in length. Water pressure seemed ok. Electric was fine too except it was closer to front of site instead of rear where our electric cord is housed. Nice mini store with ice, playroom/game room, and a few basic necessities. Staff was very friendly. Just off I-70 and easy to get to. Park roadways are narrow and gravel, turns are tight for big rigs. Very quiet at night except for the occasional 18 wheeler using exhaust brakes. Appeared to be several seasonal folks. Kids on the jumping pillow were a little rowdy but otherwise park was nice overall. Would probably stay again if just passing through: though it's a little pricy.

Relatively nice KOA. Sites were rather close, but doable. Nice pull throughs, but a little tough to level as they were grass sites: some with ruts. Quiet once the person on the neighboring property ran out of fireworks. Shortly after dark they started shooting fireworks. At first it sounded like gun shots and we were afraid to go out and look. Came very close to calling the police. Finally things quieted down. Easy to get to and somewhat big rig friendly. Would probably stay here again. Staff very friendly.

Oh my gosh!! Wish I had read the other reviews before we pulled in. The place is in dire need of some TLC. I'm rating it a 3 because the staff was very nice: otherwise I'd give it a 1. The roadways in the park are NOT user friendly for big rigs. Trees at the sites need to be trimmed. We had to move because the site we were first in had cedar trees on both sides and we were unable to get our LR slides out. We asked to move and although the staff was very accommodating, she moved us to a site with similar tree issues. The second site was supposed to be a "pull through" but they had only paved half of it. When we went to leave, we had to drive over part of the playground (which appeared to be part of the site in the first place.). Water pressure was very low. Other reviews mentioned power surges, but with a surge protector, we were ok. Lots of old broken down dumpy trailers, some covered in so much dirt/slime and mold, you really couldn't make out the manufacturer. They appear to have been here for quite some time. The "lake" was more of a pond. Didn't see anyone swimming, nor would I go in there as there were close to 35 geese swimming, walking and "doing their business" on the road and beach. Didn't need to worry about people not picking up after their pets, as goose droppings were everywhere! Trains about 100 yards away and yes, blew the whistle as it passed the park (due to the train crossing about 75 feet from the entrance of the park.). Didn't go out after dark as I didn't feel too safe. Seemed more like a rundown trailer park instead of an RV park. Definitely will not stay here again, nor would I recommend it to anyone. Felt it was very overpriced ($35) for the area, sites, amenities, narrow roads and current clientele. This park is not NOT big rig friendly. Grass needs serious cutting! Park does not take credit cards either. I'd recommend a Wal-Mart parking lot first.

Nice park, owners very accommodating (stayed late to await our arrival). Sites were grass but watch out for fire ants. Some of the mounds were rather large. Very quiet, appeared to have some permanent residents. Pet friendly, clean and easy access for large rigs. Convenient to interstate 30. Only stayed overnight, but would stay again if just passing through.

Exceptionally nice RV park, clean, very easy in and out with large rig. Wide concrete sites, full hookups. Nice laundry facilities. Owner very accommodating if you have special needs (I.e. late arrivals, etc.). Secure gated entrance. Property is well maintained and backs up to a community park with 2 mile walking trail. Very convenient to Fort Hood, Still House Lake, Belton Lake, and local shopping/eateries. We are full timers and have stayed multiple times. Small portable storage sheds available to rent if you are going to "stay a while". Will definitely stay again.

Very nice park, small, but very accommodating for big rigs. Pull through sites were under tall pines and shaded. Sites were packed stone, nice width, extra long. Plenty of room for 40' fifth wheel and tow vehicle. Small laundry facilities but clean and neat. Limited number of full hook up sites (we only had electric and water). Walking distance to small pond for fishing. Owner very friendly and helpful. Only stayed 1 night, but would stay again. Convenient to Interstate 30.

We loved the park! We do have a couple of suggestions: Getting in the park and up to the office to register was a little challenging. There was no one at the main entrance, and the signs could be marked a little better showing how to get around the park (to the main office). Also, we would suggest a place for large rigs to be able to pull in to register at the main office. We pulled our 40' trailer into the parking lot and had to 'back it out' onto the road to get out of the parking lot. The parking lot could be modified to allow for 'cars/trucks/etc.' parking and a separate area for big rigs to pull in and be able to pull straight out. As a camper in the park, we still had to pay a $10 (fishing license) fee to fish (catch/release). We'd like to suggest that if you are there for less than a couple of days, that you are able to fish for free. We were just overnighting it, and felt the $10 fishing license was a bit steep, especially since in Texas, if you stay at a state park, the fishing is free. The sites themselves were nice. Relatively level, E/W/S was easily accessible. We left early in the morning, and it was a picture perfect site seeing the lake. There was a lone fisherman in a small boat surrounded by the mist coming up from the lake in the early morning sun. Something one would see on a postcard. We would stay there again but probably not fish.
