Cost is with the Florida Senior discount. Beautiful park. Clean restrooms. We were in site 36 which is in the back and very private. Across from the bathhouse. Great location for birding and fishing. Beach is about 1/2 mile from the campground. Large park with the bridge across the inlet dividing it. Good swimming area at the lagoon for children. The bugs were bad but that is to be expected in this type of environment. Need bug spray to sit outside in the evening. This is the "real" Florida.

We came to this park when evacuated from tidewater VA during hurricane Irene. So happy we came. This is by far the best COE park we have ever visited. We were in B136 which was a huge site. At least 100 feet long and very wide. Lots of open area on both sides and a path down to the lake with a small private beach. The roads are paved and wide. There is a paved bike path that goes about 4 miles and with all the other roads you can get in about 7 miles. The bathrooms are new and spotless. The morning after the hurricane the bike path was cleaned off of debris by 10:00 AM. This is a huge park with three swimming beaches. We will definitely be back.

This is a nice park. Beautiful pool. The lake is very dirty and a negative for the park. Our site was large and we had good satellite. Verizon cell and internet worked fine. Close to all Hershey attractions. He will definitely stay here again.

This park is all about location. The sites are mostly dirt. We were in site 315 which was an easy in and out for our 38 feet. The site was large but we did have lots of traffic back and forth through our site since we were right in front of the bathroom. During the week the park was much quieter than on the weekend when it had no vacancy. It rained while we were there but about an hour afterward the ground seemed totally dry so no problems with mud. The TART 21 mile bike trail is paved and leaves right out of the back of the park. There is a pedestrian bridge across 31 to the beach. The restrooms were very crowded but stayed as clean as they could be with all the traffic and the dirt sites. No water or sewer hookups in the campground which is typical of Michigan state parks. Water fills all around the campground. We would definitely stay here again just for the great location.

We were in the Pines section of this state park. The Lakeshore section is like an entirely different park. The road in the Pines was excellent and all the sites had paved pads and electric hookups. The water fills were very conveniently placed. The road in the Lakeshore section are basically gone and the sites are grass or dirt. The sites in the Pines are quite large where those in the Lakeshore section are much smaller. I would say that if you have a big rig you would want to be in the Pines section even though it is not on the water. The restrooms in the Pines section were very clean and tiled. I did not go into the Lakeshore bathrooms. The road into this park is in need of some work and quite rough. We would definitely come back but only to the Pines area.

This is a beautiful campground on Lake Superior. They have double wooden resort chairs on the lake which are wonderful for sunning or watching the sunset. We stayed in site 14 which was a very easy in/out. The site was level enough. The camp hosts have lots of information on the area just outside their RV which is very helpful. The only problem one might find in this park is the location of the electrical boxes. In some cases you might need up to 75 feet of electrical cable. The only reason for the 9 rating is the position of the electrical boxes and of course no water or sewer hookups.

We were in site 16 in this park. Had nice shade trees but since it was quite rainy, we stepped out into a large pool of water. There is a steep hill going down into the park but we had no problem with it. There is a nice grassy area where children can play. The park is in an excellent location to visit the Apostle Islands Golf Course and downtown Bayfield and to take the ferry to Madeline Island. We had no Wi-Fi at our site even though the owner advertises it. My biggest complaint was the restrooms. The toilets were in an outdoor covered area. The showers were pay showers and took $1.50 for 5 minutes. At $32.00 per night, I would expect to get a free shower. We might stay in this park again.

To review this campground, I will just say what we considered the positives and negatives. The positives: A great location for visiting the area, nice level, pull through, full hookup site with a shade tree. The negatives: Bathroom had two flush toilets for over 250 sites. Others were either portable or pit toilets. There were two showers for women and two for men. We had full hookup so did not use either of these but I did check them out and they were moderately clean. Most of the sites were 15 amp, we had one of the few 30 amp sites. We would not stay in this campground again.

This is a beautiful park with wonderful water access. The roads into the campground area are not very wide, but the roads in the campground area are really narrow. We could not get into the site we had reserved due to the narrow road with no ability to turn the truck. We were give site 37 which had a place across the street for turning. No problem getting in then. However, the exit area is very narrow and takes some good maneuvering to get through. There is only one shower house in the entire campground. I can imagine that on a busy weekend, there would be quite a wait. Due to our 38 feet, we would probably not try to get into this campground again but would definitely visit for all the wonderful kayaking and hiking.

This park is right on the Capital City Bike Trail. Some in and out traffic from bikers stopping to use the bathroom or get water. The sites are large and level. The showers are large and each is in a private area. This is an excellent location for biking into Madison. Also quite close to major roads into the city. There is no water or sewer at the sites but we did have 50 amp which was great in the 100 degree record breaking heat. Water fill stations are spread around the campground. We would consider a longer stay next time to further explore the area.

This is a huge state park. We stayed in site 349 in the Twin Valley loop. The site was level, easy in and out, was quite large and private. We were able to kayak in one of the lakes and hiked the Lost Canyon Trail. The rest rooms were clean and conveniently located. The only reason for a 9 for this park was no 30 amp, no water and no sewer. This is about normal for Wisconsin parks however. There is a day pass fee on top of the campground fee so we bought an annual pass for $35.00 since we will visit quite a few state parks in Wisconsin. We would like to come back and spend more time.

This is a gem in the Thousand Trails/Outdoor World system. The grounds are manicured, the sites are level and of decent size, the pool is heated and pristine, the bathrooms are super clean. The Wal-Mart Super center is 3 miles away but the campground is out in a country setting. Appeared to have many sites booked on a long term basis as there were lots of RVs but no people. There is a restaurant in the clubhouse but was not open during the week when we were here. The laundry is small but inexpensive. Rockford, IL is about 20 miles away and an easy drive. There is a wonderful bike trail along the river running for about 10 miles. Rock Cut State Park with hiking and biking is not far either. Only reason for the 8 rating was no 50 amp service and the roads are unpaved. When in this area again, we will definitely stay here.

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and were surprised that the park was rather quiet even though fully booked.. We were in site 36 in the B section which we got our 38 footer into but not without some work. I would recommend the D section and the sites in the 100s for big rigs. Those are level, large and easy in and out. The restrooms were clean but old and in need to updating. The grounds needed mowing. The rate is the Golden Age rate. The marina area is quite nice and was busy of course over the holiday. We would stay again if in this area, but only in the D section.

Upon arriving we found that we could not get into the site we had reserved. While the website indicated a 115 foot drive, 60 feet was straight downhill. We were then given a first come, first served site in the T section with full hookups. The site was gravel and level. Much more suited to our 38 foot fifth wheel. I would say that all the sites in the A section are for small units, and would highly recommend a call to the campground instead of using the website when reserving. The staff seemed to know all the sites and can make a more realistic assignment. The area is an outdoor mecca. Wonderful kayaking, biking and hiking. The showers in the T section were outdoor showers but the bathhouse in the D section did have private showers. We did not use either, except to take cover during a tornado alert. We would definitely come again but only in the T or D section.

This is a wonderful state park. The campground is 5 miles from the entrance but the drive is beautiful. We were in site A14, a large, level pull through. The restrooms are dated but very clean. The water pressure was good but the water was not very hot. The sites are relatively close together but since we were not at the site much did not matter to us. There are great hiking trails, a beautiful golf course, good kayaking lakes, a treetop nature walk, and good biking. This is a hilly park so be prepared for a workout. We are hoping to stay here longer next time.

Spent 10 days in this park. Big sites and easy in and out. The pool areas have been redone and are very nice. New furniture around the pools too. The restrooms were cleaned daily and almost never used. This park is in a great area with restaurants, shopping and golf very close by. There is a canoe launch in the park into a small lake. We would definitely stay here again.

The rate stated is the fee for 50 amp service. This campground is built on a hillside. The first 27 sites are the only ones I would recommend. The road on each row is well paved but quite steep. As you venture further back into the campground, the roads become nonexistent. While another reviewer mentioned wheels off the ground, I walked the entire campground and did not notice this at any site. That being said, when the sites were cut into the hill no room was left on either side of the asphalt pad for any semblance of a site. Therefore, we barely had room for our chairs and small table. The sites are also quite close together. On the positive side, both pools were well kept and we enjoyed the adult pool which was close to our site. We had good satellite TV and also good cell service. There is no boat ramp in the campground, but we were able to hand launch our kayaks into Lake Hartwell from the beach area. The tennis courts are completely unusable as they are covered in tall weeds and the hard surfaces are broken up. The campground is about 20 miles from any sizable grocery store. We would probably stay again but certainly not as a destination.

We have been coming to this park for years. After the 2008 tornado, it has been upgraded and in much better condition. The restrooms have been tiled and are much cleaner than before. We stayed in a pull through site (#44) that was supposed to be full hookup but the water and sewer connections were on the wrong side. We were able to use the water by using two hoses but not the sewer. All the other pull through sites did have all the connections on the correct side. These sites are not right on the lake and there is not lake access from the campground. There is a nice boat ramp in the park and a big swimming beach. Plenty of roads for biking but hilly so can be a struggle for a casual rider. We will definitely stay again when we visit our children living in Macon. We understand that they do take reservations now.

The is a large state park. Our site was on the water and very large and clean. We did have 50 amp but no sewer in any of the sites. Many pull through sites but some could be tight for large rigs. The restrooms were clean. We were able to launch our kayaks directly from our site. The golf course in the park is a little pricey. We played at Pine Hills in Cordele on a senior rate of $19.00 each. A very nice course and highly recommend it. The state park is big enough for lots of biking. There is a nice swim beach too. We were not bothered by noise from the marina since we were here during the week. Almost had the entire camping area to ourselves. Don't know what it would be like on the weekend but I can see how it might get really hectic. We will definitely come back but probably during the week again.

This park has the potential to be the best in the country. The park was devastated by a hurricane several years ago and is STILL in the process of rebuilding. The new reservation building was opened 3 weeks before we arrived. Check in was easy and the staff was very helpful. The roads are new and all the sites are full hookup with level paved pads. This park is not on the ocean but many sites have lake views. The lake cannot be accessed from most sites however. The bathrooms were immaculate. The beach is about 2 miles from the park and across a busy street. There is a large parking lot and pavilion for beach access. However, you have to pay $2.50 if you are in the campground. The swimming pool, laundry, tennis courts and boat ramp were not open when we were there. Still under construction. I believe this construction has been going on for years now. If they ever complete this park, it will be a perfect 10. We will be back.

This is a beautiful park. The restrooms were very clean. The park was mowed and there's no trash anywhere. The sites are large and paved. Many have a wood deck. There are numerous trails and a large children's water park which we, as adults enjoyed too. The boat ramp is nice and allows access to the Ticfaw River. We kayaked and enjoyed the scenery. There is plenty of biking too. The cabins are very nice with AC and flat screen TV and were getting new Sealy mattresses while we were here. We will definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed the 8 nights we spent in this park. The roads are in bad shape and you really have to take it slow. We kayaked from the boat ramp and enjoyed the lake. The pool is large and very nice. Open til 11:00pm and mostly adults in the late evening. Our site was level enough and the grass around it was mowed. The activity center is well stocked with games etc. The park is close to restaurants and shopping. We will definitely come back. The reason for the 8 is the roads and many of the sites were not well maintained.

This campground is far from any sizable town, so come prepared. There is no 50 amp but did manage to run both ACs by putting the hot water heater and fridge on gas. The sites are wooded and large. We were backed up to the lake but no access due to the large number of lily pads around the shoreline. We were here during the week and had the entire place almost to ourselves. Nice adult pool and lounge area and we were the only ones using the pool. There was a large mowed area with yardage markers to be used as a driving range. The restrooms were clean and air conditioned. The family center was large and WiFi was available. The biggest problem with this park is the roads. There are big potholes and in some places the road is almost gone. Also, lots of the pads at the sites are eroded away. Many of the sites are being used as permanent summer locations. There is a storage lot.

This was our first visit on our new TT membership. The park is very nice. We did not get a FHU site as it was a holiday and we were too late arriving. Did notice quite a few annual rental sites and of course they had FHU. The restrooms are dated but air conditioned and clean. There are two pools and we really enjoyed the adults only pool. The laundry is too small for all the sites. Only four washers and four dryers in the entire park. The boat ramp area was nice as was the fishing dock area. There were lots of activities over the weekend. We had some problems with all the overhanding tree limbs and do feel they need to be trimmed back for the big rigs. This park is not close to any sizable town, so one needs to come fully stocked for the stay.

We arrived at this park on a Sat. It was very crowded. The main complaint is that every site was occupied by 5 or 6 people and at least 2 cars and a boat trailer. It was actually hard to tell where one site stopped and another began. One of the restrooms in our area was closed due to budget cutbacks, and the one left was definitely not enough for all the people. The swim beach in our area was really muddy and crowded too. The golf course was beautiful and well worth our stop. Lots of boat and jet ski traffic on the lake. We might stay here again, but not on a weekend.

This is a beautiful mountain park. The sites are large and very private. Many of the sites have a view of Pike's Peak. The campground has many hiking trails but no map which gives you the distances. They are supposedly working on that now. The bathrooms were very clean but there was no hot water in the ladies showers. We had good WiFi with our Verizon air card and TV with our dish. There are water fills about every 6th site. We would stay here again and hope the shower issue is resolved.

This park is in a beautiful location. The views are great. There is lake access where you can take a kayak, canoe or a power boat. There is a file mile hiking trail. We did have cell service and WiFi with our Verizon service. The roads into the park are in terrible condition with lots of washboard and potholes. The pull through sites are large and each has a picnic table. The availability of water is limited. There was no water in D loop. The dump station has no water so you must use your outdoor shower to rinse. The restrooms and showers are in the main registration building, a long way from your site. Also has only 8 showers for the entire campground. There are pit toilets in each loop.

We stayed here before the rates skyrocketed. The park was very well maintained. The staff was not all that friendly but only dealt with them at check in and check out. There is a wonderful bike path directly across the street and the Colorado Trail access is from the park. The WiFi worked great. There are lots of park models but all are well maintained and a really cute mountain design. The pool and hot tub were very clean. The exercise room is only for owners as is the lounge. While the rates are really high in the summer, this resort is all about location and we are seriously thinking of spending a month or two next summer.

The RV park itself is just a dirt lot. The sites are pull through and have full hookup, but as stated earlier the sewer dump is higher then the RV so we did not use it. The store, restaurant and hotel are across the street and are nice. This is definitely just a place to set up to visit the Grand Canyon or rest for the night. The rate of $14.00 is about what this place is worth.

This is a beautiful location. The sites are very large. We were in C-1 and had a fantastic view of the lake. There is a wonderful bike path going from The Coves to the Lodge. The park is extremely clean. The Wi-Fi at our site was great. The laundry room was small but open 24/7 and the rate for wash and for dry was $1.00 each. The only negative is that the showers are down at the registration area and they are pay showers. We would definitely stay here again.

The is the nicest RV resort we have ever visited. The sites are very large and many have double paved driveways. The laundry is large and has a drying area to hang out your sheets etc. The pool is beach entry and rivals any resort we have ever seen. Many activities during the winter months. The restrooms are spotless and modern. Nice exercise room. But the best of all for us was the 18 hole championship golf course within this resort. Also, there's a very nice restaurant associated with the golf shop. There is free Wi-Fi at the library and registration area. No cable TV but we used our antenna and got all the local stations clearly. This is our fourth winter in this resort and we will spend out fifth next year.

This campground is in a very convenient location and has easy access. There are many permanents here. The pools are small but clean and can get quite crowded and noisy when children are visiting. The sites are large enough and we had a pull through which was very nice. There is no free Wi-Fi. If the permanent spots were more up to date and better cared for, this resort would get a higher rating.

This park has mostly manufactured homes with RV sites scattered around. The roads are very narrow and the RV sites are difficult to maneuver with a large rig. We stayed here on the $1000.00 for three month deal in Oct. Nov. and Dec. This park is very convenient to everything. The beach can be reached via the shuttle which is just outside the park. The beach is about 4 miles away. The park has three nice pools and lots of activities. Close to shopping and great restaurants. We will be staying again next year, not so much for the park but for the location and price.

This is a typical KOA where you are charged extra for everything including the grandchildren and the cable TV. There are quite a number of permanent residents in this park. The roads are not in good shape and many of the sites are unlevel. We will stay here again only because there is not much other choice when visiting our family in Macon.

Nice big sites most being lakefront. The water is low in Lake Lanier so hard to get our kayak in the water. The drinking water was very brown even when using a filter so we resorted to only bottled water.

This is a very well maintained county park. We stayed for a month and a half and enjoyed every day. The park has a huge lake for boating, miles of bike paths and is a bird watcher paradise. The sites are nice size but no shade. The restrooms are very clean. The only drawback to this park is the area of town in which it is located. Many people stay the entire winter and have been coming for years. We will definitely return.

This is a beautifully maintained park. The sites are large and paved. We were in a site which backed up to the lake. The landscaping is very nice. Restrooms are at both pool areas and are modern and immaculate. The two pools are not very large but well maintained and screened. There is an excellent library. Very close to shopping and restaurants as well as about 8 miles from the beach. There is a bike trail right outside the front gate which is nice for walking and biking. While quite pricey, everything in this area of FL is high during the fall and winter months and after looking at other resorts in the area, we feel that this is the best. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a wonderful park. Very large spots. Clean restrooms. We stayed a week and then extended another day. The area is great with shopping and restaurants as well as a movie theatre within 2 miles of the park. We were in a lakefront space and enjoyed sitting at the water's edge. The hosts are very helpful. We will definitely stay again.

This is a very wooded campground and the next best thing to camping in the national park. There are no sewer hookups, but they do have a pump out service. The restrooms are scarce considering the number of spaces and quite far from many of the sites. The sites could be tricky for larger rigs. The location is great. We stayed a week and would stay again but did try to scope out which sites we could more easily get our 38 footer into.

This is a very large state park. The sites are long and have lots of room between most sites. Only a few of the pull thru sites were close to each other. The streets and sites are paved. The only negative is that there are very few bathrooms for the number of sites at the park and with no sewer hookups, used by most everyone, so there is sometimes a wait for a shower. There is lots of bike riding as well as lake activities. We would definitely stay here again.

This park is located on the river. The sites are very narrow and we did not have a picnic table. No room to sit outside so did not even unpack our chairs. We did not use the bathhouse but was clean but run down. Did use the laundry which is also run down but clean machines. The road into the park is gravel and muddy as it did rain while we were there. The park was quiet with few children even over the 4th of July holiday. We stayed here to utilize our Passport America discount. Might stay again if in the area and want to save a little money.

This is a beautiful, modern park adjacent to an 18 hole golf course. The sites at the RV park are well landscaped and very spacious. The restrooms are beautiful with up to date tile and very clean. The golf course is in excellent condition and a challenge. There is a restaurant and pro shop also. The only reason I gave this a 9 instead of a 10 is that the resort does not have a pool. This would be nice after a hard day on the golf course. The stay and play deal is great and we only wish we could stay a week instead of three days. There is a county park 3 miles away where one can enjoy river swimming and a picnic. Golf is the name of the game at this RV resort.

This is a beautiful park right on the river. The sites are level and well spaced. The grounds are beautiful with flowers everywhere. There is a soft serve ice cream machine which is on the honor system. Great touch. This park is close to lots of hiking and biking. The clubhouse is beautiful with lots of books for exchange, a big screen TV and tons of magazines. The pool is small but clean. The price for laundry is very reasonable. We would definitely visit this park again.

The staff here was very helpful. Escorted to the site. Diamond Lake is just across the street with the bike trail just across the street also. The reason this park was not rated higher is that we were in the W loop and that loop had no restroom. It was quite a walk to get to the closest shower and restroom. Also, our site did not have a 50 amp connection. The wi-fi here was good.

While this park is expensive, it is really the only place we would stay in the Monterey area. The owners were very helpful getting us parked. The restroom were very clean. The site had a tiled pad and a fire pit. There is a clubhouse with a lending library. There is access to the beach via a path across the dunes. This is about a 1/3 mile hike in deep sand. State park access is just down the road. There is a bike path from this campground all the way to Monterey. We would definitely stay here again.

This is an older campground and somewhat run down. The sites are gravel with a fire pit and a picnic table. We were in a site which backed up to Bodega Bay. Very windy and could not sit outside or cook out due to high winds. There are many permanents and there is no security on who comes and goes. No monitoring of noise or barking dogs. We would not stay in this campground again.

This is the way a county park should be run. Extremely clean. The new sites in the back do not have any shade but are pull through and quite large. This is a wonderful park for fishing, biking and jogging. Close to Town Center and shopping. The pool is small but very clean. A vendor cooks hotdogs, hamburgers, etc on Friday, Saturday and Sunday by Lake #5. We stayed here for a month and would definitely stay again. Great place to bring the kids for a weekend!!
