We had a spot in the "Hammocks" and the spot was small and dirt. Other areas of the park feature less trees but concrete slabs and are much larger (these are vastly nicer). The park itself is very nice and spread out. The pools and spa were absolutely great, warm and clean. There is a pretty pond with a few resident gators and ibis'. The laundry areas have 2 washers and two dryers. The area nearest the hammocks were musty and left our clothes smelly but the other one was clean and smell-free. The location was very handy to Titusville (the resort is way closer to Mims) and the Kennedy Space Center as well as other great area sights! We would stay again but not in the "Hammock" area.
Nice for a KOA and wonderful staff. But the site we had (basic) was very small and so tight that with our 36 ft fifth wheel parked, we had to park the truck to the side and it was almost butt up against the trailer and the small conversion van on the other side. Dirt sites that were very dusty and created a lot of mess. Old, icky picnic table and no fire pits. There is a nice lake with quite a few swans and ducks that was very nice but no path to really access the lake. Pool had just opened so was too cold to use, no spa. Fairly quiet area but still quite a hike into Savannah. Not much else to do within close range. Laundry was used by staff everyday to wash sheets from the cabins (5 washers, 3 dryers) as well as residents who rent the larger "cabins" on a monthly basis so getting a load of wash done was a juggling act. We would probably not return to this park.
Absolutely the most beautiful park we have ever seen! Gorgeous grounds, HUGE, paved sites and patio, and beautiful, clean buildings (office, store, laundry, work-out room). Close to North Myrtle Beach and Myrtle Beach not to much farther. This is quiet, country setting at it's best. Large lake with a beach and a walking/bike path all around (1 mile). Pool and spa where spotless and though the pool is not heated, it was pleasantly warm. The only thing that made this park a 9 and not 10 is...no Wi-Fi at sites (there is in the laundry and store areas) and no cable, which for a resort of this caliber, I would have expected. We will absolutely return if for nothing else to enjoy the peace and quiet (who needs Myrtle Beach, anyway!). AND...each site had a fire pit as an added bonus.
Just a mess. Didn't even want to GO in the bathrooms or pool or laundry. Kid at desk very nice (we were tired and without a place to stay) but unprofessional all around. Residents of the park were nice and helped us back into a very tight spot. Lots of park models that are very old and scrubby looking, RV's too. Suppose to be adult park but several kids/teens running around. Good location but just a mess!
Location, location, location! This park is directly across the street from beautiful Carrabelle Beach, where you can walk the length of about a mile on white sand! The park itself is extremely neat, beautiful, well laid out, and has wonderful amenities (game room with full kitchen, gorgeous pool and deck, showers/bathroom). There were two very small drawbacks. The laundry room stunk to high heaven, and the sites are pretty tight and short. (Our 36 foot fifth wheel took up so much of the concrete slab we had to park the truck across the end and on the landscape). Large Class A's seemed to fair better with their smaller toads. The park is located about half-way between St. George Island and state park and Bald Point State Park so there is plenty to get out and do. Tates Hell State Forest is within a few miles, and the hiking is very nice there. St. Joe is a good hour away. Staff was super nice and the neighbors were all friendly and considerate. We will absolutely return for an extended stay in the future!
This is a huge RV park spread over something like 22 acres. There is a central area that has a gigantic pool, zero-entrance kids pool, hot tub, two bars, snack bar, game room, work-out room and (apparently) party facilities. Unfortunately, due to the time of year, not much of this was open, The pools, hot tub, bars were all closed up. My husband did use the work-out room and enjoyed that. The site we were in was a pull-through and it was plenty roomy. We wondered, though, why in such a huge park, with so few people, they had the few of us that were there lined up one after the other. It's always nice to have a spare site in between you and the neighbor as long as there are sites empty (and there were MANY). The park is gated and secure, and the staff was fine, though the front desk person seemed very harried and brusque. The laundry room was neat and functional and the restroom in the same building was huge, but I did notice the showers were pretty dirty (several days in a row). The area is very convenient to Breaux Bridge and Lafayette, and we also did day trips to St. Martinville and New Iberia as well as Avery Island. Lots to do and very scenic area. We also did a Swamp Tour on Lake Martin that was wonderful given the time of year. We would absolutely stay here again. I can only imagine how much fun the park itself is when the weather is nice and there are families and kids there to enjoy the gorgeous pool area. Even without, though, there is so much to do in this area. My favorite in all of the south, so far!
The best thing about this park is its proximity to the French Quarter and the shuttle available to get you there. The park itself is in a very industrial area on the river so there is no walking/biking available and no access to Lake Pontchartrain. But let's be real...we weren't there to walk, bike, or swim! We were there to experience the French Quarter, and that we did. The shuttle was a wonderful way to get there and back safely, timely and save money and frustration trying to park in the Quarter. The price was PA and we thought it was very generous and reasonable for the area. The shuttle was $5/pp. We took the 10 a.m. (first of the day) and returned on the 8 p.m. (last of the day) but you have the option of cabbing home if it gets late. The park itself is neat, clean but sites are TIGHT. if we had even a foot more of RV or truck we would have been SOL (we have a 36ft fifth wheel and 1 ton truck). The laundry room was clean and functional. There is a large bar atop the main building that we didn't go to but it looked nice. Clearly there were guests enjoying that area as they did keep kind of late (and loud) hours. The pool was very well kept and pretty but not heated. The hot tub was your standard home version that was warm if anything. The staff was very nice, very efficient and helpful at all times. We would definitely return to this park.
We stayed here after signing up at the Southern Louisiana RV Show for a "free" 3 night stay. Honestly, we had no interest in the Ocean Canyons Campgrounds, but we did want to stay in the Abita Springs area. The check in process was a mess but that had to do with all the paperwork you had to fill out as a guest (same questions I had already answered for the RV show guy as well as the phone confirmation gal). The campground is just that...a campground. Very rural, very rustic, and very quiet (except for the 100 small yipping dogs who reside there). We had the required sales pitch and tour the next morning. Saleslady was relentless but after about 2 hours, she did give up abruptly with the stern warning that "we would not be invited back". Fine. She had a multitude of promises for what the future held for the campground. Lots of improvements, etc. They were working on the pool decking while we were there which rendered that area useless but the pool was not heated anyway and there was no "promised" hot tub in sight. Buildings were archaic and the laundry area (outside of the bathrooms) was equally dismal. Rusty old machines, poorly located and situated. The area itself was very pretty and the Tammany Trail provided a full day of bike riding. We didn't do anything else but drive to Covington to go to Walmart. The site was a back-in and fairly roomy. The firepits were very oddly located basically next to your neighbors sewer hook-up? We are not invited back, but if we were, we probably would not go!
We stayed here three days thinking it would be convenient to the Gulf Shores area as well as Pensacola. Both were a bit of a hike, though worth the time. (Naval Air Museum in Pensacola is fabulous and the Gulf Shores is very pretty though touristy). The park itself is bare bones necessity, FHU and not much else. WI-FI worked "OK". No cable but enough digital antenna stations. Spots are very generous in length and grass (which was either dry and dusty or muddy). There is really no where to walk, or ride your bike, or go out to eat (closest would be a truck stop) so we pretty much headed out in the morning and did not return before dinner. Never met the owners; a camp worker checked us in after we were already hooked up. Rate was PA (which was weird because the advertised regular rate is $27, and our neighbor commented that they had paid $25/night so I don't know where the $18 came from). We would return only as a stopover if necessary. We drove by another park on the way to Gulf Shores, and I wish we had stayed there instead. Much closer to the shore and equally close to Pensacola.
Agua Caliente is a beautiful park in a beautiful desert! The rangers and camp hosts are wonderful, welcoming and helpful. The sites all seem to be very large. We were in a back-in spot at the end and rear of the park and our backyard was a gorgeous stretch of desert and a mountain peak behind that. You are surrounded by nature and there are many trails and hikes to take in the park and also in Anza-Borrego S.P. We had no TV, no cell reception, no Internet, and couldn't have cared less. The beauty is outside and that's were we stayed. The "Hot Springs" spa is chlorinated so it kind of ruined the "natural" part of having the spa. And the only other bothersome thing is the nearby El Centro training center for helicopter pilots who did land/takeoff drills for several hours two nights in a row, right across the highway. It was loud and very annoying but not the park's fault. Other times it was so quiet you could hear the coyotes, the owls, the quail, and even a pin drop! Peaceful!!! I would imagine if you had kids there, you'd have to be pretty careful keeping an eye on them. The "big" pool was freezing cold and I did not assess the "children's pool" so amusement might be an issue for small kids. But us two grown-ups LOVED the park and can't wait to return!
We had a "luxury" spot that was in the back of the campground. It was extremely difficult to navigate the narrow roads and back into this spot. The spot for the RV is gravel and uneven. We were able to open slides but not the awning. The concrete pad/patio had to be used to park the truck (and we had to fold the mirrors in to even get it on the pad next to the fifth wheel). The site was unkept, dirty, concrete cracked and stained. It seems a majority of the people are residents, and there are a lot of old, terrible RV's and campers. The office was efficient in making the reservation but pretty inefficient on check-in. Laundry required card which we weren't told about on registration (though I asked about the laundry specifically). Wash was $2.50, I did see. We did not use the pool or "spa" which was about 2 feet round. This also does not appear to be a very good area, safety wise, and we felt there was not security in the park.
We stayed in the "upgrade" area and had a very large pull through spot. The park was pretty, kept up nicely, new molded plastic picnic tables at each spot. The office was helpful,and very friendly. The park is conveniently located at the south end of town. I was able to walk up to the Fred Meyer just a few blocks away. Gas and LP across the street. Very nice, cheap laundry room on site. The only drawback to this park was the garden center adjacent to this side of the park. They started up their backhoes and bobcats at 7a.m. on the dot. Which woke us up every morning.
We have camped at Baker Park many times because it is so close to our home in the Twin Cities. It is a beautiful park, gorgeous grassy areas, large shade trees, wonderful playground, horseshoe pits, volleyball court and bike paths. The park police are constantly on patrol and we have never had any issues at the park. The office staff is nice, but typical teen-aged employees. The best part for us was Lake Independence as the weather was extremely hot during our stay. The lake has several nice beaches, many picnic areas and paddle boat/canoe rentals. The bad part about the campground is the lack of water/sewer hook-ups. We would love to do a longer stay but as it was, we had to completely tear down to go dump and fill water, twice! The outdoor areas make up for the inconvenience and we loved our week at Baker Park.
Beautiful oasis of a park located just south of Redding. Right on the lower Sacramento River but other than a short stroll, we never used or accessed the river. Park has large pull throughs and really nice trees and bushes planted so you feel like you have some privacy even if you are only feet from your neighbor. Bathrooms are spotless and huge. Nice laundry facility. The pool was not open but it looked very nice, and very small. You do have a couple mile drive down the service road after exiting Hwy. 5, and you definitely get road noise from the highway. But it was really a beautiful park, very nice office staff and other staff was constantly going through park, cleaning up and probably keeping an eye on everything!
