This park has spectacular natural beauty. In five minutes one can walk from the campground to the Gulf beach one way; the sheltered bay beach the other. Staff and hosts were helpful. There are several trails for easy hiking and many song birds at the time of year we visited. It is about 6 miles from the little village of St. George; 12 miles to the mainland from the campground.

Park is well run with many social events run by park volunteers. The terrain for hiking is sandy two-track roads through scrub forest, much of it burned or in process of reforestation after removal of non-native plants. There is a new paved rail-trail for biking that cuts through park property. Laundry is available as well as Wi-Fi internet, at the Nature Center building. One very small lake for swimming has an alligator warning. No park-owned access to the Gulf beach although public beaches are within 5 miles. Canoes are available for rent at the park, to be used in the small stream.Lots are 55 ft wide on paved access roads. Most lots are shady.

Just an excellent campground! It would be a 10 if it had sewers. Many sites have ocean frontage. Access road and sites are crushed shells. There is a picnic table and grill on each site. Sites are 60 feet wide and very deep. It is really friendly to dog owners. There is a dog's beach. There are organized nature walks. There are laundries. There are bike trails and exercise stations. The beaches are one of the 10 best in the US. There is security. The park is fifteen minutes from the shopping center. Trash is emptied daily.

Even though we were across the campground road from the dune and the walkways that access the beach, we could still enjoy a view of the ocean at all times. Lots are 60 feet wide with half being 70 yards from the beach and half 100, depending on which side of the sandy road you are on. The locked access gate is awkward to manage and makes entering and leaving slow, but the ranger explained that having highway behind the campground necessitates good security. There is no laundry. Dogs aren't allowed on the beach, but a 10 minute walk down the highway (on a sidewalk) brings one to the city beach where dogs are allowed, on a leash.Staff is friendly and helpful. The main activity for us was walking the beach and walking in the more sheltered area near the inter-coastal waterway. It was too cold to swim. We would come here again.

There are picnic tables and fire rings at each 40' wide shady site. Gravel road and sites. One feature is a wonderful spring that is 72 degrees and can be swum in year-round. The Suwannee River flows through the park and Manatees and Sturgeons can be seen daily. There are lots of interesting birds also. Canoe trips are available. There is a playground and many nature trails. There is a security gate locked at night. There is no laundry. Chiefton, with laundry and Walmart is six miles away.

Lots were 55 feet wide. Features include playgrounds, laundry, fire rings, paved access roads, good security, boat launch, two fishing piers (lagoon and ocean), lagoon and ocean swimming, ocean surfing, shelling, hiking trails, abundant wildlife. We were right on the lagoon, connected to the Gulf, and we had huge herons and egrets right in our front yard. Tame deer are seen in the evening. Just outside the gate is a commercial area. Inside is private and wildly beautiful. Campground hosts are particularly helpful here.

Beautiful beaches to walk, fish and swim. Wonderful woods with nature trails. A large wilderness area. Sites have fire pits and picnic tables. Sites are at least 40' wide. Paved pads and access roads. Plenty of staff. Very family friendly. Twenty minutes from town with all the major tourist attractions. This would be a ten if it had water and sewer at sites. In the newer Pines campground many sites are close enough to a water tap to run a hose to fill fresh water tanks.

This is strictly a stop-over campground. Roads and campsites are paved, sites have crushed-rock "lawn". There is an active train track very close; noise from freeway and airport nearby.Sites are 25 ft. wide and many are pull-through. Amenities include a complete camp store, gas station, propane sales and free use of the Holiday Inn swimming pool,very near by. Each site has a picnic table.Laundry available. Easy access to highway I-65; just minutes from downtown Louisville, KY. About one-third of the campers are seasonal.

This is OK for a stopover. There is a lot of interstate noise. The lots are 22' wide. But they have a lot of amenities: laundry, pool, picnic tables, shuttle to Grand Old Opry, shuffleboard, exercise room, store and playground. There are no campfire pits. Interior roads and rv pads are gravel. But there are nice 8x9' wood patio pads.

Friendly staff, paved interior roads, gravel 25' wide sites. Each site has a picnic table, but no fire pit. Resident manager on site. A nice country setting just far enough from the freeway to avoid freeway noise. About half the sites appear to be seasonal occupants.

This campground would rate a ten if it weren't so close to a major highway. However, this makes it convenient for one-night stops while traveling North or South. Lots are 35 ft. wide,partly shady, concrete pad, with gravel interior roads. Fifty percent of campers are seasonal. There is a nice laundry/lounge area with huge TV,and a hot tub. Sites have tables but no fire pit. Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful Everyone gets a bag of popcorn and a USA Today newspaper upon check-in. They provide an electric-cart escort to your lot.

This park is on a beautiful peninsula and all sites are within a five-minute walk of the Gulf Beach. Outdoor showers near the beach boardwalk make it easy to rinse off after swimming or wading for shells.Lots are sixy-feet wide, served by paved roads. Every site has a table and fire ring. The boat launch is on the bay side of the peninsula. Fishing and snorkeling are possible activities. It is a stopover for migrating birds. Guided bird tours are offered several times a week.

The campsites are 32 ft. wide, on grassy lawns, served by dirt connecting roads. Only about half of the sites have sewer hook-up. Tent sites are secluded and beautiful. A 1/2 mile scenic boardwalk takes one through a cypress swamp to the banks of the Suwannee River, where there is a deck for observaion and a dock for fishing boats. Not every site has a picnic table and there are only 3 community fire rings for the whole park. There is a laundry, horse shoe pitching area, and a small camp store. The staff is helpful and the park is clean and well-maintained.

There is a shuffleboard, fitness center, playground, laundry, store, horse shoes, mini-golf and basketball court. There is a nice clubhouse. Convenient to Disney and Sea World. Camping World is four minutes away. Only 50 amp service. Dogs, you can have two, must be under 50 pounds.

We stayed in the Big Flats campground. It is wooded and quiet with 30 ft. dirt lots. Interior campground roads are also dirt. There are two dumpsites, one convenient to this campground that doesn't have vehicle access but one can roll a gray-water tank to with ease. There is one laundry facility for 2 campgrounds. The park is popular on weekends with many visitors enjoying boat rides on Myakka Lake, viewing alligators, renting canoes or bikes, visiting the large camp store and snack bar. Two areas allow close-up observations of egrets, anhingas, and herons from the water's edge. Another trail has an impressive wooden tower one can climb safely to see the "canopy", looking down on the tops of palms and oaks. Many people bicycle the 8-10 miles of paved park roads. The park is about 9 miles from i-75 and about 45 minutes from downtown Sarasota attractions.

There is gated security. There is a bicycle rental available.

Each site has a picnic table and fire ring and is unpaved.Paved interior roads are narrow and tree-lined, making it very difficult to get our 32 ft 5th wheel into our 33 ft. lot. There is a playground, laundry, social events, guided nature tours, rental canoes and guided canoe trips, boat launch, and hiking trails of different levels of difficulty. The "walking dredge" displayed there is a mechanism of historic significance to the building on the Tamiami Trail.

The park is on Lake Manatee which is a dammed of river, popular with fishermen. There is a 20 HP limit on boat motors. Swimming beach is OK but alligator warnings are posted. Interior roads are paved; spacious 80 ft. (not paved) campsites each have a picnic table,fire ring and clothes line. Live oaks, pines, and saw palmetto cover the grounds. The picnic area has a large playground and there is a boat launch and fishing pier nearby. There is no laundry. Hiking trails are wide and easy to follow. Wildlife include armadillos, rabbits, deer, alligators and feral hogs. We did not see alligators or feral hogs. Campground hosts do much of the maintenance and they are friendly and helpful. There is a locked entry gate after 6:00 pm. The campground is quiet, evenings and early morning. It is 9 miles East of I-75 and about 10 miles East of shopping, gas, and similar services.

This is the Coast to Coast rate. A lovely campground with beautiful shade trees and 42' wide sites. Pool was not open. Private beach access, and change building, to Lake Michigan. Fire rings, picnic tables and playground. Laundry machines were available. Most sites are seasonal residents. Roads were paved. Sites were sand. There was a small store. We could not reach any Wi-Fi. We would have given this a 10 if the sites we paved, had sewer and they had provided notification that the water was going to be shut off 10/15.

This park features grassy 90-ft. wide sites with asphalt pad and access road, bordered by shrubs that give lots of privacy. Hiking, biking and horse trails wind around a lake, three miles in circumference. There are special campgrounds for horse owners. An excellent beach with bath house is ideal for families. However, there is no modern playground equipment at the park, and the beach is one mile from the campground. Staff is friendly and regular nature programs are offered in the summer. Speed boats and jet skis are not allowed on the lake so it is friendly for fishermen. There is a special pier for handicap fishing access.

Beautiful spacious campsites. Ours was 48' wide. Nice fire pits. Paved roads. A store is available with rental bicycles and boats. There are two lakes and a stream. There is a nature center, bike trails, a dam, a restaurant and a lighthouse. The trees are magnificent. This would be a 10 if it had sewer and water.

This campground is OK but needs some basic maintenance, like more gravel at sites, lawn mowing. Bathrooms were OK but also could use some remodeling. Staff was friendly and helpful. There is a small pond for "catch and release" fishing and for swimming, nice playground equipment. Lots are 32 feet wide with tables and fire pits.Some access roads are paved. It is close to town but fairly quiet. It is two miles from the freeway. Our fee was based on Passport America membership.

Our site was 25' wide. Some are wider. Sites have picnic tables. Access roads and access roads are crushed granite. Occasional fire rings are near sites. There are many nice personal touches showing the ownner's pride. The general store had local crafts. The play area benches had benches of all sizes. Hiking trail for fishing. There was a nice laundry. Our dog received a baggie of treats. This is within a mile of the freeway exit. But you could barelyhear the freeway. If the new sites were 35' wide this would have received a 10.

We'd rate this a "10" if the 35-ft lots had been 40 feet. (Some lots are larger). It's in a beautiful river valley in the Ozarks with a crystal clear, spring-fed stream running through it. There is a state-operated fish hatchery on-site and they release trout into the stream. Fishing is the main activity with many families catching their limit every day. There is a large camp store, educational nature center, playground, and 2-4 mile hiking trails. The full-hookup campground is brand new, on a meadow near the stream. The electric-only sites are on a mature forest hilltop nearby. Canoe trips are offered by the park. Access roads are paved and sites are concrete with table and fire ring.

This park has at least 10 campgrounds, with varying prices and utilities, and each is a small strip of campsites, one unit deep. This way we had no "neighbors" front and rear, and an awesome view of the lake, even though our site wasn't "lake front". Pull-through and back-in sites are the same price. Full utilities are $21; other sites $16 and $8 (no hook-ups). It is a family friendly park, well run, with hiking trails, playground, boating and fishing. Roads are paved and sites are concrete with picnic table and grill at each site.

This park is convenient to I-40 but lots are 20 feet, too narrow to navigate safely. The sites are dirt, heavily rutted and pot-holed. Some of the asphalt campground roads have pot-holes also. Dumpsters were over-flowing. Management added some gravel to sites only AFTER the driver of a large motorhome drove into a pothole and tilting his rig, snagging his awning on a tree branch. They do not accept any type of credit cards.

This was OK for a quick overnight. Staff was friendly and sites grassy and shaded. No restrooms or showers that we were aware of. It is fairly quiet but still convenient to I-40 exits.

Even though it is in the city it is nicely insulated from traffic noise. Near shopping centers. Sites are 35 feet wide with picnic tables on concrete pads. A fire grill is included on each site as is trash pickup. Trash could be picked up more often however. Small playground equipment. Paved access roads with gravel sites. The sewer hookup on the pull through sites was at the roadside, making it difficult to stretch the hose to the outlet without the back end of the unit being a bit in the road. The staff is very friendly. The campground is a bit difficult to find with an access road back from the highway, not clearly marked.

This is an outstanding, new, park. It is part of a sight-seeing rail tour to Grand Canyon. The complex offers the train trip, excellent campground headquarters, kennel, restaurant, extra nice bath/shower/laundry facilities. The bathroom/laundry is entered with a motel-style key card. A courtesy phone inside links campers with the office, the free shuttle service, or emergency help. A lovely community fire pit, picnic shelter, and playground are family-friendly. Everything is clean and classy. Pads and access roads are paved. Decorative landscaping, trees, and rock are attractive. Some people might be bothered by a nearby freight train passing through town in then early morning hours. Lots are 30 feet wide. The campground is 55 miles from Grand Canyon National Park.

30' wide lots in basically a parking lot topped with pea stone. These lots are in a small mobile home park of about 32 units. No children's play equipment. A view of the mountains from some sites. Pretty quiet except for the busy railroad tracks about 1/4 mile away. But we like the sounds of trains. No picnic tables or fire rings or grills. Our rate was Coast to Coast.

Beautiful high-desert campground with view of dammed-up lake from every campsite, distant mountains, and desert meadows. Lots are 80 ft wide, paved, with sewer available in 2 of 51 sites. Ours was a sewer site and our fee was $18. Non-sewer sites are $14. There are both reservation and non-reservation sites. Grills and picnic tables are provided on a cement slab with steel and stone-wall shelter at each site. A nature guide is provided for easy hiking across the desert terrain trails. The campground has some trees. Access roads are paved. The camp is about 12 miles from town. There is a boat launch but eating the fish in the lake is not recommended. Staff is friendly and helpful. Campground host also.This campground is about one hour's drive from Carlsbad Caverns National Park visitor center.

If there were restrooms or showers, they were locked up. There is no laundry. No fire pits or grills and no picnic tables. The sites are gravel as are the access roads. Sites are 40' wide. There are some neat farm animals and deer and peacocks. There is no staff around. You just leave your payment in a mailbox. Trying to get a reservation by telephone is difficult. You get an answering service. It took me ten tries over three months to get a call back. The email address doesn't work, and US mail isn't answered. There are a couple of swings and slides. Maintenance has been neglected. This is formerly the Wagon Wheel Guest Ranch. This is not a destination campground.

Includes a picnic table, a fire grills, a laundry, paved sites, paved access roads, 45 foot sites, playground equipment, a fishing lake and hiking trails. Facilities were well maintained. An alligator is in a fenced in area. The staff was very friendly. A restaurant is on site. The only problem we had was the voltage on the shore power. Our two voltage meters had each site at 132 volts. We did find only one site that came in at 130. Our rating would be a nine except for this problem.

Picnic tables, fire pits, children's play area, fishing lake and nature trails are included. Sites are about 45' wide. Sites are paved as are access roads. Tennis courts could use some re-furbishing. The staff is very friendly. The main problem we had was that the voltage on the shore power was too high. During the day it was 130 volts. At night it was 134 volts. This can cause damage to some electrical appliances. If this is corrected, we would rate this park a nine.

Free for us because we are members there. This is not a destination campground. There is no ambience. The campground has a "storage" feel to it. The roads are gravel and the lots are grass.

We used the Coast-to-Coast rate. Most of the sites are owned by members who have their equipment on the site. This is truly a classy place. The lodge is beautiful. There is a horse stable, tennis, mini-golf, playground and chapel. Local TV and cell phones do not work in this remote area. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. The mountain views are gorgeous. There is 24 hour security. All roads and sites are paved.
