We used this as an overnight stop. Our rate was cash. Very convenient to I-65 almost as if it had its own exit. Open CG with all pull through sites. Utility connections were well placed for us. Some vary by site so you have some options. Although big rig access it does take some maneuvering and sites are somewhat limited for larger rigs, as a friend of ours with a 45' found. We both were able to stay hooked up but you just had to be selective. Staff were very helpful. This campground is nestled next to pastures with goats, sheep and cattle grazing nearby. We have put it on our list as a regular stopover because we will come back.

We stayed here for an overnight stop en-route to Elkhart area. Rate is a senior rate. Minimal trees to maneuver around. Entire campground covered with crushed rock - very stable and open. Paved roads. Individual cement patios, although location seems strange - straddles the line that most of us would consider the edge of each site. Utility hookups were placed closer to rear of site which caused us problems only because we kept our toad hooked up - obviously our choice. We could hook up to electric and water without problem, but sanitation was far enough back that we could not hook up since we didn't have enough hose. water is down in a lined pit probably because of freezes. As far as sanitation, we just filled our tanks and then backed up in the morning and dumped which we could have alleviated if we'd disconnected. All in all, a nice CG that we will visit again.

The rate is a group rate. We camped here with our RV group. This was our first time, but the group camps here annually this time of year. The campground is large with a variety of sites that may or may not have satellite reception. We parked up near the office and had great reception mainly because our dish is on the rear of the coach. The owners are very courteous and welcoming. Verizon USB modem reception was OK, although on the edge, although cell phone coverage was just fine. Thomasville is a great tourism destination with much to see and do. We already are looking forward to our next visit.

A great overnight stopover. We've used this site on both east and westbound trips and plan for it each time. Convenient to the interstate. Level gravel and grass sites. In view of the interstate with its road noise, but not so obnoxious that it bothered us at all. After driving all day, road noise is not a big thing for us once the windows are closed. The owners are very courteous and work well with any needs of campers. They escort you to the site and help guide you in. The rate quoted was a PA rate. We definitely will plan on this as our stopover whether running I-10 or I-75.

This was our first visit. We were southbound on I-95 and the end of a long day. What a great experience. The owners were so gracious and wanted to ensure that we had a great experience - and we did. The rate listed is a PA rate. We plan to make this one of our regular stops when southbound in the future and northbound if at all possible. Great packed grass sites that were wide open and the option of nose out or nose in parking. Easy access to I-95. What a jewel in the beginning stages.

It is ok for an over night stop. It is very convenient to the interstate. There are long sites for those not wanting to unhook. Space is limited between sites and they are very out of level. There are major ant problems. Although sanitation available, located nearly at the rear of all sites necessitating use of extended sanitation lines. No dump station is noted on the campground map. Since we have sani-con, either I dump before fully entering the site or take it with me (which we did). There are many permanent rigs in as either getaways for the locals or many snowbirds settled in for the season. We will continue to use this campground as our stopover during travels.

It is not a Passport America park during snowbird time. We stopped here for an over night because it was advertised as a Passport park. They have the signage but don't give the Passport rate from October to the spring supposedly because of the number of Canadians here. There are a lot of seasonal campers. The sites are poorly maintained. There is a very tight right turn into access road - nearly 150 degrees - I made it, but sure wasn't sure if I would. I do not plan to stop here again - only worth it if given the Passport rate, else wise it is overpriced. There are too many better parks in the area. (877) 251-2251

Cash or check only - no credit cards. Fairly well maintained park with many long term. Pull thru sites are extra long, and can handle 45' without problem. Corners are a bit snug with poorly placed sign poles that intrude when turning some corners. In view of I-10 traffic and it is constant noise. Was able to shut it out somewhat with closing windows but it still intruded on the sleep. Flying J is only about 5 miles west. Will definitely consider as a future stopover.

Good campground with fairly easy access to US 45 and I-20. Sites are big enough to keep toad attached for overnight. Allows coach washing with approval. Clean and well maintained. Good for overnight or extended stay. Diesel readily available at multiple stations that are RV friendly. Will definitley consider on our next stopover in Meridian.

This is the old Diamond Jack's campground which was bought out by Ameristar. Very convenient to I-20 exit 1A and to most attractions. We spent 5 days here, and plan to go back when we visit again. The staff were easy to work with. A lot of overnighters and weekend folks. 3-day limit on stay is dependent on how busy the park is. Train nearby was bothersome at first, but then got used to it - even the 3 am daily freight. We had our windows open throughout the stay because of the very pleasant weather. Did not really hear road noise from highway. Sites are paved and narrow, although ample room for sitting outside and barbecuing.

This is primarily a winter snowbird residential park with some RV sites scattered around the park. The park is well maintained with many amenities and activities. We were assigned a site made for up to 43'. Luckily we were only 40' and had open sites on either side as the sites are all back-in and difficult to maneuver due to the narrow paved street with park homes directly across close to the street. We had to disconnect the toad to enter the campground due to sharp turns and then reconnect when ready to leave - not something you necessarily want to do for just an overnight stay. The rating we gave was based solely on our overnight experience and the fact we had to haul our garbage off site because we happened to arrive on a non-garbage pickup day.

We were visiting relatives in Punta Gorda, so this park was very convenient. We timed our arrival around the departure of Snowbirds, who pretty well fill the park during the winter months. There were a multitude of sites available. Sites are not large and are grass with paved patio plus paved roads throughout park. We arrived just after rains, and our jacks went straight down into the soft topsoil - had to go to the local Home Depot for boards to reinforce under jacks. We camped in a 40' motorhome and the turns were a bit tight when maneuvering. Many of the folks who work here also live here. Very helpful and worked with us well. We will definitely return. Keep in mind this is primarily a membership park that is also open to others.

There is a washboard road leading in. Good stopover for overnight, although most sites were taken by what appeared to be families. Sandy sites under trees. We camped with a 40' and toad, very limited on sites for this size and very tight turns. Would not want to attempt here if rig was larger. Be forewarned, only accepts cash - no credit cards.

Large, well laid out campground. Many full time or seasonal residents, but all sites well maintained and neat. Many of sites are under full tree canopy, although many also open. We chose one under a tree canopy, but soon learned that in the fall, those leaves can be a pain with all awnings, especially once the leaves become wet from the rains. The staff were very personable and helpful. The only issue that we had was with Wi-Fi. Although a Wi-Fi antenna was on the front office roof, it didn't have much range so it necessitated going to the office to use the laptop. I waited too late until the office was closed so had to sit outside to use the Wi-Fi. Kind of miserable what with the rain and fall weather fast chilling down. The owner came along and offered to open up to let me inside if I wanted - I declined the offer since almost done. Like I said, they are an inviting and personable staff. Well maintained roads leading up to campground and good paved interior roads. We will return without a doubt. Great location for those visiting Rochester area although out in the country.

Great central location for the western Finger Lakes region. Campground was very clean and well maintained. Front office staff were very helpful and friendly. We arrived on a Thursday and on Friday, the campground nearly filled with a camping club. In spite of the large crowd, there was no excessive noise and everyone observed quiet hours. We will definitely plan to return to this campground on our next visit to the Finger Lakes.

Fairly new campground with further expansion already in the works. Very user friendly with large, open, back-in sites. Very big rig friendly. Front office Staff and campground hosts are extremely helpful and very friendly. Sitting on a hillside, the campground is terraced with all paved interior roads. The sites are level compacted crushed rock for a very stable campsite. We started with just two days, but kept adding days because we were fully enjoying the view and the weather. We already plan a return to Franklin and will use this campground.
