This park is surrounded by a run-down neighborhood and a storage facility. It is not at all attractive. The sites are all open with stone. There is no store at the camp, but a grocery store is 3 walking blocks away. This is about 70 miles from Tucson and the price includes cable, so it is somewhat busy.
We chose the mountain view site that is $12.00 more than the non-view sites. It would have been wonderful to sit out for a while and look at the city lights,but it was too cold. All sites are open and gravel, no trees or grass. The park was nice and quiet and clean.
We were tired of driving and I checked this website and found the CG. The park was empty so we could choose our site. There is an area with a few trees around, or an area that is very open and the sites are right next to each other. The sites are stony, but level. The restroom house had 2 toilets and 1 shower. They weren't filthy but could use a good cleaning. We didn't get any TV reception (we don't have satellite), but had good phone reception. Overall, very quiet and we would camp here again.
We weren't crazy about this cp only because the sites are very sandy (that fine, white sand) surrounded by alot of unattractive bushes annd trees. Not very interesting. The rangers were very nice at checkin and the restrooms were clean, if not a little old. Overall a decent, quiet park.
This is a beautiful park with alot of deer roaming thru the area and sites right on the water (recommend 20). We rode our bikes around the park - really pretty. The restrooms are clean. I saw washer/dryer hookups, but no machines. It's a small, clean and quiet park. I would highly recommend it.
This is a clean CG with gravel pads and a little grass. We didn't want to be right up front (by the road) so took a site in the back with no trees, but plenty of mosquito's! The staff was accommodating and pleasant. The restrooms and laundry room are clean. Plenty of TV channels and good internet reception. Lots of semi-permanent/permanent rigs, so not the most attractive, but a good overnight site.
This place was convenient and I was tired of driving so I stayed - I should have kept going. This is an Encore property, and they charge a $3 "resort fee" - this is no resort. The sites that aren't "premium" are all near the very busy road, and unlevel on grass. It is all open, so no shade and no privacy from some of the very rundown looking permanent trailers. The restroom was clean, I didn't use the showers. Upsides - cable included in price and I received a AAA discount, downside - almost too loud to hear my tv! I would not recommend this place.
I found out about this park from this website- I wish I had looked sooner. It is a fine for the money. It was raining when I arrived, so the concrete pad (instead of grass or sand) was great. The sites are decently set apart, but don't have any trees for privacy. The restroom was clean, but old. There is a laundry room that I didn't use. I did take a nice walk around the camp. It can be used for bikes too. There is a strip mall with a supermarket 1/4 mile away - great for picking up items before settling in. The only downside of this park is the traffic noise. I was very aware of the noise, it is loud.
This is a wonderful park with amazing sites. They have about 60 sites that are literally right on the ocean - beautiful. The only downside is how tight the sites are, especially since we had the loud family next to us. Some sites seem to have a thicker tree/bush buffer between them, although the woman that checked us in said that there were NO trees shading or separating the sites. I know for a fact that the sites in the late 20's and 30's had more of a buffer between them (we were in 43). I would definitely recommend this park and go again (but not on a holiday weekend).
Wow! This is the most over-priced campground we have stayed in in our 5 months on the road and we've stayed on truly waterfront sites. I guess as they're the only game in town they feel they can gouge people. The check-in ladies were not very friendly - what does it take to get a smile? Spend $200 night?? The women's shower had hair all over it, and the faucets are rusty. I used the laundry room and that was fine. We wanted to get a sunday paper, but the machine was broken and they didn't seem to care at the office. Also, this is surrounded by a very sketchy neighborhood, you would not want to walk around at all at night.
We came here to bike around lake Okeechobee. The staff are very friendly, but didn't see anyone on a Saturday at all. ? There are very few trees, so not much shade, but the sites a are clean and paved. It was not at all busy and was very quiet. There is a nice pond to walk around and take a look at the alligators (small and not many). I used the washer/dryer - there are two at each building. The only down side are the surrounding areas - run down with no real restaurants or shops to speak of.
We came here because it was the closest to the Kennedy Space Center and the Florida campers guide said it was $20 for w/e - not bad, except that when we checked in, it was $33 and the woman behind the counter said "we don't give them those numbers, I don't know where they get them." Strange.. anyways, we chose a site and settled in. My husband went to take a shower and walked over to the closest one only to find it closed for repairs. They didn't tell us. Once he did find the other restroom, there was no hot water, just lukewarm. The offerings at the store are meager. The up side of this campsite are the sites near the water (and the closed restroom) that have a view of the Space Center launching pad.
This campground is not much to look at from the entrance, but keep heading to the water and it's really beautiful. It was very peaceful (granted it is October) and we had site B72 which was wonderful. There is a pier with a picnic table that would be great in the summertime. The only downside were the mosquitoes - vicious! The restrooms were very clean. I would recommend this campground.
This place is now called Long Beach RV resort. Their phone message still says scrubbie pines - that should have been my first clue. The woman on the phone was very nice, but when I checked in, I couldn't get a smile out of either of the two ladies at all. Driving in there are old rvs and crazy halloween decorations(it is october). The place was virtually empty, so I had a choice of sites. I tried to get one near a lit-up area, as it is somewhat eerie with all the old rvs and other junkie trucks and stuff on the property. The only saving grace was the restroom - a single room that was very clean. There is no security guard and the place is closed down after around 8pm. There is a laundry room as you drive in (not at all convenient to my space) but I did not use it. I am traveling in a motorhome.
I went to this campground based on other reviews on this site, and it was really nice. The ranger was very helpful with directions on the phone to the camp, and then he also helped me with a map for the Henry Hudson rail trail in Freehold - worth doing! As it is fall, the camp was empty but very clean. The sites are large and wooded. I would definitely come back here if I was in the area again.
This park is popular because of its vicinity to JFK (my reason for staying), and Manhattan. It is very busy, but was noisy both nights I was there. The first night, a guy was talking (or shouting) into his phone, outside, after hours. I was about to say something to him when he finally shut it. The second night, I was awakened by someone revving his engine before quiet hours were over. I said something to the office, and she said she "would look into it". The sites are somewhat close and not shaded, so you see (and hear) your neighbor. The ladies restroom was decently clean. I didn't use the shower, but my husband said the mens' shower was horrible - water was everywhere, the curtain did nothing. Because of the price (30$ for electric/water, and 20$ just the site) this place will continue to be busy.
