Disregard that prior review ("Best RV park in Texas"). This is a clean, plain, remote (12 miles from Palestine), run-down looking CG with shaded grassy sites, loose dogs, a friendly manager, no WiFi or cable TV. Didn't see a bath or shower house. The grass needed mowing. It was great for an overnight after a long tow, but not much else.

This CG offers basic accommodations - full hookups, cable, Wi-Fi. It is a very plain setting with narrow sites (17' - just enough for slide and awning), no trees, only landscaping at office area, small pool. Very helpful manager; CD loaners for talking Battlefield tour. Perfect for an overnight or to see the excellent sights in Vicksburg, convenient to gas and shopping. Just not a destination. We would probably not revisit the area.

Excellent COE park with long paved pads, large gravel patios, good sized sites, shade, full hookups, clean rest rooms, etc. Waterfront sites overlook murky fingers off the river; not overly scenic or appealing. Sites not overly private. Very hot in July. Would return in cooler weather.

Very clean, attractive, well-landscaped CG almost surrounded by water. Nice views from many sites. Peaceful trail traces the shoreline. Strong cable and Wi-Fi. Single major drawback - very narrow sites (17') - barely enough for a slide-out and awning.

This full featured KOA has become seedy, un-groomed - it's not bad, but it's just not appealing. We first stayed here in '99. Sites are small, good Wi-Fi and cable. Convenient to I-75, gas and shopping. We'd only stay here again to visit family in the area.

Very scenic small CG with views up the valley to the Roan Mountain range. Views change hourly. Half of sites back right up to babbling Doe River (only 10-15' wide). Nice sized grass sites with concrete patios - all full hook-ups. No facilities other than hook-ups (no rest rooms, showers, cable, Wi-Fi, cell phone coverage, playground, activities, etc.) Just a very scenic, peaceful, pleasant CG. Convenient to TN/NC mountain tourist activities in Boone, Blowing Rock, Banner Elk, etc. Directions: on Heaton Creek Road just off SR 143 south. Big Rigs: very tight turn over small bridge to enter CG. MH > 40' or 5W > 35' may not fit. We would definitely stay there again.

This is a wonderful family park on a long stretch of the Middle River (great for tubing if its not too low). While the CG is on the river, few sites are "waterfront" or even "view." Lots of tall trees, grass & gravel. Pond and river fishing (trout stocked). Very friendly staff. Wi-Fi is good, Cable is OK, cell phone coverage poor. Lots of tourist activities in neighboring Stanton. A definite destination CG. We would definitely stay here again.

We spend Father's Day weekend here with our grandchildren. It is an excellent destination park, especially for families and kids. Large friendly staff, well stocked store, lots of planned activities, nice wooded sites, good bath house and laundry facilities. We like this CG. Now for some knockoffs. KOA is definitely pricy AND adds a $4/night "Resort/Activities Fee" price gouging. Cable TV is limited to basically network channels. WiFi can be spotty. We experienced low voltage (fortunately did not have to run AC). Some campground roads need trimming and sites can be bit tight getting into. But for Father's Day with your grandchildren, it was perfect. We'll be back on our next visit.

The good news is that this campground is still here in the congested southwestern suburbs and is convenient for visiting family & friends. It's a decent campground - some parts quite attractive, others quite dated; some sites roomy, some wooded, others open and grassy . Cable TV was good. WiFi (only at office) was problematic. Waterfront "lake" is an overgrown lily pond with a large frog population. We'll stay here again to visit family.

Another difficult CG to rate. Full service KOA with very active staff, office, grounds, etc. Has no cable TV. WiFi coverage was spotty. It's close to our daughter and grandchildren. Sites vary: in the woods, open with some grass near office, decent size back-ins by the cabins. Makes a great base camp for exploring the area.

Ratings are relative. We've stayed at Timberline multiple times on trips north/south through NYC. It's a great, quiet, clean place to spend the night. It's no resort or destination but quite functional. Wi-Fi available only around the office. High percentage of permanents but generally reasonably maintained. We'll definitely stop here again on our next trip through.

Overall, this park is a gem. Sites are under tall pines, clean, generally decent size. Park staff quite active and helpful. Memorial Day weekend was sold out: but never got noisy or rowdy. It's a beautiful waterfront marina with kayak rentals to explore marsh trails through Janes Island. Restrooms are barely OK: just not adequate to handle a heavy tenter crowd. Large mix of non-electric sites encourage tenters. Water available from taps throughout the park; fill up before going to your site. Poor signage for Park Entrance, Registration. WiFi readily available downtown. We would definitely return.

Very nice CG stretched along mouth of Chesapeake Bay. Variety of sites: on the dunes or in the woods. Campground roads are narrow and not well pruned back in places. Has multiple boardwalks over the dunes to the huge beach. Bathhouses are not fancy but quite functional. Has a good camp store. Free WiFi (at camp store). Has a good laundry.

This is not a campground. It is a very crowded permanent trailer park with 12 +/- scattered very narrow sites rented to travelers at an unreasonably high price ($55). The few pluses: it's a short walk to a nice beach access, only option for Kitty Hawk (Wright Brothers, etc.) area. Has no restrooms or showers. WiFi is $17/day (so I checked "no"). Overall, a very unsatisfactory spot. Would not camp here again, (have seen Wright Brothers).

Initial impressions are not strong - dirt road with pot holes, looks a bit run down. But it turned out to be a very pleasant spot and we extended from 2 nights to 4. Sites along the canal were very relaxing and pleasant. Decent beach where you can walk out for "miles" at low tide. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable TV. Friendly staff. Good value compared to what you pay elsewhere on the Outer Banks. Making improvements but will never be a "resort." We would definitely stay here again.

This is not a campground. It is an overnight spot to catch the ferry. It's an open, grassy, sand/dirt field with rutted roads and randomly scattered hookups. A dozen permanent RVs occupy the few sewer sites. Exercise caution when parking; there are multiple signs of prior RVs getting stuck in soft sand. Heavy overnight rains made pull-out in the morning nerve-wrackingly dicey. No cellphone service. Would not camp here again.

Very nice full featured KOA a short drive from historic New Bern. Excellent Wi-Fi and Cable. Be cautious about "Premium River View" sites - overgrowth essentially blocks all views - not worth the Premium. Very friendly and helpful staff. Sites were reasonably spaced. Would definitely stay here again.

Delightful dry campground tucked behind the dunes. Open with scattered low evergreens. Water available (to fill tanks). Dump available (just outside CG). No Cellphone Service or gas stations on Ocracoke. Sites are well spaced with paved pads. Multiple "trails" across dunes to beach. Only 3 miles to Ocracoke Village. Would definitely stay here again.

Overall an excellent KOA with an attractive entrance. Very attentive staff. Good sized sites. Excellent WiFi and Cable. Extensive facilities, including dog play areas. Close to highway (US17) but noise not an issue. CG roads quite dusty (they tried to water down but limited effect). Convenient to shopping and area attractions. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Great CG and surrounding area. Large sites in the open or in the woods. Broad beach only a short walk away. Walk the half-mile causeway over tidal marshes at high and low tide to see alligators, birds, crabs and more. Tour Huntington's winter home (Alatala) and magnificent gardens (Brookgreen). Scheduled daily programs. Hike or bike - lots of options. Pet friendly, even on the beach. Okay, no Wi-Fi and limited sites with sewer (but three lanes at the dump). Just a great place.

This was a difficult campground to rate. Overall, it's a decent campground with good sized sites randomly grouped. WiFi was decent, cable was excellent, lake was scenic, and the nature trail provided a good 30 minute walk. Now for the concerns. (1) Ants - we arrived during emergent season. Office provided no heads-up; our rig became infested. They came and sprayed but nothing proactive. (2) Litter - I picked up >125 bits of litter on our site, including fire ring. Obviously sites are never thoroughly cleaned. (3) Fees - $45 (after discount) is pricey.

Now this is a campground! Picture a large quiet wooded area with dirt roads snaking through connecting randomly scattered good sized sites (many pull through) carved out of the woods. Good Wi-Fi and Cable coverage. Clean laundry and good sized bath house. Friendly staff. Convenient to Beaufort, Parris Island, and the coast. Would definitely return if in the area again.

Brand new CG. Excellent facilities - paved pads, good grass, comfortable spacing, large pavilion on lake (great for rally's). Wi-Fi (Free Tengo) is cumbersome. I-95 noise looms in the background. Good spot for overnight or base camp, but not as "destination."

North Beach is distinctive. Picture a jungle of Live Oaks and palm undergrowth vegetation with roads and individual sites carved out. Great privacy, sense of multiple mini-campgrounds. Beautiful beaches at each end - River and Ocean. Two great restaurants. Easy assess to Saint Augustine. Spotty Wi-Fi in the CG.

Unique 5-site CG (along with 5-room Motel and Tiki Bar) nestled up to west-facing tidal flats (sunsets!) filled with tiny islands, oyster beds and sea birds. Palm trees dot the site. Scene is constantly changing. Check out setting via their website and Google maps. Wonderful young owners investing sweat equity to spruce everything up. One mile from tiny town with lots of activities. Bring a full fridge and pantry. Would return in a heartbeat.

Clean, friendly park right on the Gulf. 20 sites actually back up to within 15' of water's edge (with dual hook-ups so you can either pull in or back in). Entire CG is crushed limestone or oyster shells. Wildlife abounds here and nearby. Wi-Fi is weak at ocean front sites, but a functional rec room provides a good place to stay connected. Some good small restaurants back in town. We would definitely stay here again.

My ratings are skewed toward, "Was this a nice place to camp?" In this regard, Bay Breeze rates high. It is small, intimate, rustic, peaceful, friendly, quiet, with cozy sites right on Mobile Bay. Has a nice beach and long pier. Also has friendly helpful resident managers. WiFi was spotty. Has a clean laundry. The hookups and infrastructure were a bit dated, but who cared. We loved it and would definitely come back, perhaps for a month some year.

This is our second time here. This is a typical good KOA. Full features include - WiFi, Cable, and etc. Some of the infrastructure is a bit old, and the sites are a bit short, but it is a pleasant park with attentive management and they continue to try to maintain and upgrade the CG. It is convenient to I-12 but without the noise. As per previous reviews, follow the KOA signs, take a RIGHT at Vincent Ave, and don't follow your GPS. We'll definitely stay here if in the area again.

This is a scenic rural setting 5 miles east of Fredericksburg. Owner/managers are friendly and maintain excellent control over the park. Restrooms have been recently upgraded. WiFi worked well; cable TV reception is limited. Sites are a bit small, especially when the CG is full. On-site RV dealership does not infringe on the CG. Would definitely stay here again, and have in the past.

Wow! Recent reviews describe a totally different CG. While this CG is predominantly permanent/seasonal campers, it is the neatest, cleanest such park I've seen. Grass mowed and trimmed, no liter, campsites generally neat (even in the older section). Newer section (100-165) sites all have paved pads and parking spaces, generous spacing. WiFi in the Rec Room, free ice, limited clean restrooms with showers at the office. Not a resort, but a very pleasant place to stay. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.
