This is a great campground with very helpful owners. It is right on the Mississippi River and watching the barges is a treat in itself. The sites are wide and there is a variety. Ours was paved on faced the river. Very level. Roads are gravel and they water them down to keep dust down. They fog every other night to keep bugs down. There is no pool. The laundry is FREE! Ice is a dollar and drinks $.50. Some tour companies will pick you up if you don't want to drive into Memphis. We would stay again in a heartbeat. Wi-Fi was strong and antenna reception was good.

Nice KOA. Stayed for Frontier Days, thus the high price. Nice people who work hard to be helpful. Sites are level and gravel. All the roads are gravel. Has cable TV and WiFi, which is pretty strong. Easy on and off from Interstate. Place was completely full for the Rodeo and was not crowded. Would stay here again if I was in Cheyenne.

OK place to stay one night. Mostly pipeline workers here for the long term. Site was gravel and easy in and easy out. People are nice and try to be helpful. Nice cafe on site. Wifi was good, but there is no TV reception. Lots of kids running around, but well behaved. Would stay again for one night. Not much else around, but make sure to see Fort Laramie while you are in the area.

The rate reflects the on line special and you have to attend a 90 minute presentation on campground membership. Regular rate is $55. The park is not bad, but not great. The sites are gravel. The roads are paved. Everything looks a bit dated. People are friendly, but there is no help getting to your site or if you need anything. The park needs attention and they seemed focused on building cabins. The lady who does the membership presentation thinks she is a stand up comedian and would starve if that were her occupation. No TV, but the WiFi is good. I would not stay here again.

What can I say? Nicest Park I have ever stayed in. Very nice sites will killer views of Flathead Lake. The resort is limited to Class A motor homes and the lots are individually owned. All have nice views, but some have added firepits, outdoor kitchens,etc. No pressure to buy. Very professional staff. The resort is located next to the KOA and owned by the same people. They will honor KOA value cards and give you 10% off. If they were closer to my home I would buy a lot!

Would have given them a 10 if their WiFi had been usable and they had cable or even broadcast TV. These were the only two complaints I had. Otherwise the campground is one of the best KOA campgrounds in America. Nice wide pull through sites, Fire pits and benches. Easy to navigate. Breakfast and dinner available during season as well as ice cream. We stayed here in a motorhome and would stay again. As a matter of fact it was our second trip to this KOA

Expensive, but the nicest campground I have stayed in. It has everything. Wide nicely landscaped pull thru sites with concrete patio. Very good WiFi and free cable and good Verizon service. Would stay here again.

Great campground for a National Park. Wide pull thru sites. Not all are very level. People are very helpful. No WiFi or TV reception, but you are in a national park. Lots of services and activities. They are suppose to have WiFi at laundry, but we were never able to get service. Also, cell service is very weak.

Just spent a week at this campground. It is a great base for exploring the San Juan Mtn area of Colorado. The staff is very helpful. They make a real effort to have activities for children. The sites are gravel and our pull-through was quite long. They work very hard to have some grass and nice trees. The only negative is poor TV reception. Otherwise, everything you could ask for. We would stay again.

Great park located between Grand Junction and Delta. Owners take pride in their campground. Even have grass between sites. Our pull-through was level and gravel with grass on the side. Staff was helpful and we enjoyed our stay. Would stay again.

Great park for exploring Rocky Mountain National Park. Staff very friendly and helpful. Like all parks in Estes Park, grass is at a premium and spaces are tight. Very clean park, good cable, and good Wi-Fi. Nice location. Would stay here again.

Great overnight stop. Right off the road, but little noise. Gravel sites and very level. Easy to get my rig in and out. Small store. Nice people. Just what we wanted for an over night stop. Would stay here again. Stayed in a 35 foot RV with slides and a toad. Had very good free Wi-Fi. They only negative is no picnic table. They even have a storm shelter!

Great state park. The only reason I gave it a 9 is there is no WiFi or cell service at the park. Otherwise one of the nicest state parks I have ever stayed at. Also, not much TV, but a clean modern campground. Better than most commercial parks. We stayed in a 35 foot rig with slides and a toad. Had plenty of room! Highly recommend. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

What is not to like? Nice wide sites, paved and level. 50 amp service, water and sewer and cable and free Wi-Fi. Nice pool and free shuttle to the casino. The lady in the office was very nice. We have stayed here before and would stay again. We stayed in 35 foot RV with slides and a toad.

Nice park for overnight stay. Not too far off I-10. All sites are sand and grass and fairly level. No TV reception or cell reception. They do offer free Wi-Fi and it was fairly strong. They say when you log in that you have only 15 minutes, but never had a problem being on a little longer. Lady in the office was very nice. Would stay again. We stayed in a 35 foot RV with slides and a TOAD.

Nice park located near Waynesville. Site are a bit tight, but the staff helps you get located. We had a stream side site and it was very nice. Gravel and pretty level. Staff very helpful. Restrooms and showers are among the nicest I have seen. Each shower is in its separate room. Very clean. Nice place to stay as a base for touring the area. Nice pet run area very clean park. We would stay here again

This is about our 5th time at this campground and it is always a pleasure to stay here. The sites down near the ocean are a bit narrow, but it is an easy walk to the beach. The sites are sand and pretty level. They are constantly working on the interior roads to keep them level and rut free. One of the best things about this park is that they really enforce the noise rules and no motorcycles in the park. The staff is very friendly and are always ready to help. We would stay again in minute.

One of the best places I have ever stayed. Large sites with paved pads overlooking a lovely lake. A county park with 50 amp, sewer, and cable TV. How great is that! Hardly anyone there the night we stayed. Would stay here again in a heartbeat

First the good. The people who work here could not be nicer. They will go out of their way to help you any way they can. The Pigeon Forge Trolly makes two stops in this park and it is a very easy way to see the area. The location is great. Easy to see all the sights in the area. The Bad-- Our site was so steep that it was impossible to get it level. It was site 903. If you want to be level, avoid this site. There were several in the park that appeared to have this problem. The office people tried to help me get my unit level but the grade was just too steep. The bath house were a bit short in showers. They staff did a good job keeping them clean, but the bath house nearest us had just one shower. The sites along the river are really nice and if you get a bit further from the entrance, they seem to level out.

Nice park NEAR the beach. It was about a 1/2 mile to the beach from our campsite. You can walk it, but it is quite a distance lugging chairs etc. Sites are very large and shaded. They could stand to cut a few trees as they can scrape the side of your unit. You have to be very careful of wandering children and kids on bikes. They are not looking out for you. Phone reception was fine with Verizon, but only place for WiFi is the store. The bath house near our campsite could use some upgrading. They work hard, but it difficult to keep the showers clean with the heavy use. We were able to get out 35 foot motorhome in our site with not too much trouble. Lots to do around the park. Would stay here again.

Could not agree more that this campground is NOT big rig friendly. I have a 34 foot motor home and pull a toad. Almost ruined my tow dolly trying to make the turns. That was after getting in the place. The signage is very poor and you can easily go in the wrong entrance which can result in you driving to a dead end with no place to turn around! There are no bath houses. There are no picnic tables. There are a few pull through sites, but they are very hard to get to. The sites are level and wide. The price is outrageous considering what you get. Would not stay here again.

Great beach front campground. Something for everyone. We were right over the dunes from the beach. Easy access to the beach. If you wanted shade they had sites around a large lake that had plenty of shade. The roads are dirt and can get dusty, but that is beach camping. Sites are level and roads are easy to navigate. People are friendly and rest rooms and laundry are very nice. The only negative is the Wi-Fi is a bit spotty. Sometimes you have it and sometimes you don't. Will stay here again.

Very nice park located near the interstate. Nice paved sites with full hook ups. Free Wi-Fi that works! Easy in and out and the people are friendly and helpful. The landscaping is very nice and there is even a lake if you want to go fishing. Will stay here again.

Nice park about 8 miles from downtown. Sites are mostly pull thru and fairly level. All roads and sites are gravel. Laundry is clean and cheap. People were very nice and tried to be helpful. As with most places in the southwest there is not much shade or grass and it can get dusty. Next to a big Camping World. Wi-Fi was a bit slow, but worked and was free. Over the air TV reception was pretty good-- there is no cable. Noise from I-40 was not bad at our site which was about 1/2 way toward the rear. Would stay again. Rate reflects PPA discount which is only good for 2 nights.

Great park and great people. Very clean and well organized park. Roads are wide and gravel. Sides are pretty good size and well laid out. People were very helpful. Caters to an older clientele and is very quiet. Good free WiFi. Located north of Flagstaff convenient to I-40. Would stay here again in a heartbeat

This is a nice park and the only negative is that some of the office people display a real attitude. They know they are the only game in town and you can take it or leave it. Their cable TV service is almost unwatchable and they really don't care if you report a problem. They supposedly run a shuttle to the other parts of the complex, but its schedule is more a suggestion than a schedule and don't expect the people in the office to help you. The pool is nice and grounds are well kept. With an attitude adjustment they might get a 9 or 10. Would only stay here if I had no choice.

What a bargain! Nice people. Nice sites. WiFi that works and cable TV with a bunch of channels. The only negative is that it is about 5 miles from downtown. It is also next to a horse show arena and might be loud if a show was going on. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

This is a nice park. Very convenient to the interstate, but you do not get any noise from the road. It is within walking distance of several places to eat and directly across from a state park and the Colorado River. The restrooms were clean and modern and the laundry was clean. Had good Verizon strength. The 24 hour free WiFi worked well, but as others have said, never saw a place give you free WiFi for 24 hours and then charge. The roads are paved and the sites are gravel: a bit close on one side, but not bad. You can wash your rig for a $10 fee. The pool and hot tub were closed for the season, even though it was 90 degrees! One of the reasons I picked the park was the pool. No reduction in price. I thought the price was a bit high since the pool and hot tub were closed. Be sure and check out the fruit stand up the street, great peaches! Would stay again.

First thing about all RV parks in Estes Park: they are dusty and this one is too. But it is a very nice park. The sites are reasonable in size and they WiFi really works and is free. Cable TV is $4 a night. There is a nice pond where you can fish for $7 a day and can keep three fish. For fee fishing that is pretty good. Saw a lot of trout caught. There are lots of things for families to do here during season. People in the office were very nice and did all they could to make my stay enjoyable. The campground has a good location. Near a store and free shuttle to town. Would stay here again.

Very nice park near Denver.The stated rate is w/o the car charge which is $8.00/day. The rest rooms need updating and you have to pay $.50 for a three minute shower. The sites are very spacious and there is a nice mix of pull throughs and back in sites. Lots of walking trails and biking trails, a nice lake and swimming beach. There is a marina, but it is on the other side of the lake and we did not have a car. They could improve the place a bunch if they had a shuttle so you could get to the other side of the lake. It is 4.5 miles around the lake from the campground. They were suppose to have free WiFi but often you could get on the network, but not to the internet. I asked at the office and the kid said they had had problems all summer. Good TV reception and cell service. Would stay here again in a minute.

What a joke of a campground! First, there is no staff at all. You have to find your site, pay and get no help at all. Some of the sites have cable TV, some don't. How do you find out? Walk around and look. Some have 30 amp some have 50 amp, again no map no way to know until you go to hook up. They say they have WiFi, but it secured and there is no one to give you the code!!! This is a field that they put water and sewer in and would not be bad for an over night at $25 a night, but $33 for a do it yourself campground is a bit steep! I would not stay here unless I could not find any other place. Oh another thing, be careful of the big ruts pulling in and out of your grass site! I would suggest staying someplace other than Colby.

This is a great park for touring Independence. It is located within walking distance of downtown. The people are very nice and helpful and have coupons for discounts at all the attractions. The restrooms and showers were very clean, but need updating. You can do a load of laundry for a dollar for the wash and a dollar for drying. Follow the directions on the web site, not how your GPS will take you. All site are paved with picnic tables. This is just s very good basic campground.

Very nice park. Close to the interstate, but had little road noise. Did have very nice, gravel sites. Some are a bit unlevel, but really no problem. Easy in and out. Free WiFi, that worked and free cable TV. No on site management, but had the paperwork ready for check in. Very clean showers. Nice over night stop.

This campground is a great place for an overnight stay. It is small and has very few extras. It does have cable TV, water, electric and sewer. There are some permanent residents and there are no pull thru sites. The people are friendly and the rate reflects a PA discount. You can stay next door at the Blue Moon for $36/ night if you want a pool and a pull thru site. But if you just want a nice quiet safe place to stay, this park is not bad. There a number of gas stations and restaurants nearby.

This is a good overnight stop while traveling on I-95. It is not far off the interstate, but there is no road noise. It is an older campground and is a little worse for wear, but the rest rooms and bath house are clean and neat. The pool is currently under repair and was out of service. The office staff was very helpful. Wi-Fi and cable TV are available for an extra charge. the rate reflects a PPA rate, but they are members of every club possible, so I doubt many people pay rack rate. The gravel on the sites is about gone, but our site was pretty level. Would stay here again if I was in the area.

This is a very nice park, but beware: it is 14 miles from I-77 which makes it not ideal for an overnight stop. Everything else is very nice. Would like to stay here for a few days as there is lots to do.

Great State park. Very nice sites, some with spectacular views of the lake. Lots of space between sites. We had 50 am service. No WiFi, but the Verizon card worked fine. I think they may have WiFi in the lodge. The only negative is that the people where you check in are really worthless. She told me nothing! I had to call to find out that there is a shuttle that will pick you up and take you anywhere you want to go. If you want to use a bike or canoe or use the pool you have to pay $14, but that is good for the day and covers up to four people. Pool is at the lodge and in and indoor/outdoor pool and has a hot tub attached. Two places serve good food at reasonable prices. You even get a newspaper delivered to your door. All sites are paved and quite level. We have deer right at our site. Would come back in a minute!

Rate reflects a KOA discount. Nice park. Near Charlotte and not far off the interstate. No road noise. Very friendly staff. The campground has a nice store, on site RV service, a small bar/cafe and on site gas and propane. This is a really nice overnight stop. It has free cable TV, free WiFi that actually works. We were toward the back of the park and had a great signal. Sites are gravel and pretty level. Not really huge, but very good size for a KOA. Lots of shade and even a fenced dog park. Has a pool, miniature golf, a jumping ball and nice playground for the kids. Clean park: I did not use the rest rooms. Would stay here again.

Nice play for an overnight stay. Says they have free WiFi, but when I asked I was told it was not working. Restaurant is only open for breakfast and lunch. Pool was nice. Sites are gravel and we had a pretty level pull through. Had a picnic table. Some older permanent units and a number of overnights. People in the office were friendly. Would stop here again, but not for more than one night.

Very nice park on Santa Rosa sound, across from Navarre Beach. People are very nice and helpful. Lots of good information in the office. Central location for seeing the western panhandle of Florida. Don't miss the Naval Air Museum at Pensacola, Home of the Blue Angels. Really nice museum, and it is free. There is a Wal-Mart about 2 miles away and a grocery store within a mile. All sites are paved, have full hook ups and a nice little picnic table. Can swim in the pool or sound. Fishing at the beach. They even have beach chairs and a shade hut on the beach for free. Offer weekly rates and monthly rates. Nice place; would go back

I have stayed at Disney a number of times and have always given it a 10-- would have given it an 11 if I could. This time only a 9. The reason? The in campground transportation system has suffered big time because of lay offs. I waited over 40 minutes for a bus that was suppose to run every 20 minutes and even was confronted with a rude employee when i complained. This has never happened to us at Disney. I guess the poor economy is even affecting Disney. Otherwise, great site and very clean restrooms.

If they had sewer it would get a 10. Very big sites. It was over 30 feet between my unit and my neighbors and there was no one behind us. They have a nice store, pool, lots of places to ride bikes. You get a discount if you want to visit the horse park which is next door. They even have a free shuttle. Lots of families camp here and the kids seem to have a great time. Had no trouble getting my 35 foot motor home in our site. It was paved and not too level, but not unreasonable. Would camp here again in a minute.

This is a nice over night stop. It is located not too far off I-65 between Indianapolis and Louisville. Lots of shade and clean restrooms. People are nice. Sites are level.

Would have been a 10, but for the train. There are train tracks that run across the road from the campground and there a several a day and they are long trains that make noise and shake the ground. Otherwise, it was nice place. Sites are wide have a paved patio. Nice picnic table lots of trees. Nice pool. Nice WiFi that is free. Also, cable TV. The campground is about 3/4 of mile from downtown. We walked it. Would stay here again.

This camp ground is a hard one for me to review and assign a rating. The sites are very nice-- wide and grass. Ours backed up to a nice stream. There are only about 5 sites with sewer. The bath rooms are the biggest negative. They are not even flush toilets and I did not find a shower. It was not a problem for us, since we were in a motor home, but it might bother some. The park is a bit out of the way and the PPA rates do not apply on Friday or Saturday. The roads in this part of MN are no picnic. The stream on the property was nice-- you could fish there and lots of the kids were tubing. They do not read their email very often and I not sure I would stay again

Nice over night stop in Mitchell. Located behind a Super 8 motel the park is nice and level. Entry roads are paved as was our site. Easy on and easy off I-90, but not too loud. But that could have been because we had terrible thunder storms-- by the way drainage is good. Had good WiFi and cell reception. Not too far from Corn Palace. Rest rooms were clean, but a bit on the old side. PPA rate included 50 amp service and cable TV. Would stay again if passing through

If I could give them an 11, I would. The rate shown is there marketing rate. If you are not a member of hart Ranch or C2C or RPI this is the only way you can stay here. 3 nights for $39. You have to attend a marketing presentation, but it is very low key and takes less than an hour. As the other reviews have said this place has everything. Pool, hot tub, putt-putt, play grounds, bike rentals, and on and on. On site cafe and rec room. On site tire service and propane. Oh, by the way, gas is 2 cents a gal cheaper than town. Very nice place. If it was not 2000 miles from my home, I would join in a minute. Why can't there be more places like this?

Nice park. The sites are very long and easy to get into. The restrooms were clean and nice. Staff was very friendly and they offer breakfast and dinner during the season. Food was pretty good.

This is a very nice campground and the staff is very helpful. It is right next to the Little Big Horn battlefield. The campground is terraced and the views are unreal. You can see for over 50 miles. The only negative is the last 1/4 mile of gravel road that is a county road. It is gravel and needs grading. The campground has no control over this. Very nice place to stay. Great WiFi that is provided free by the phone company. TV is limited and the restrooms are very clean. We would stay again.

Stayed here overnight on our way to Billings. Picked this campground because it had a laundry and we needed to do laundry. The laundry was clean and the machines worked and the price was much better than the $4.00/load in Canada. The campground is basically a gravel parking lot off the highway. There is some distance, so the noise isn't too bad. Has cable TV, but only about 6 channels. Says they have WiFi, but we could not get any signal at our sight which was toward the back of the park. I hate when people advertise they have something and they don't. OK place for overnight, but would not spend any time here otherwise. Thought it was a bit pricy for what you got

This park is located right in Banff and is a great place to base your tour of the Banff and Lake Louise area. The sites are level and covered with gravel and the hook-ups are well laid out. the campground is terraced so there are campers below and above you, but not right next to you. The interior roads are in need of repair. The restrooms are clean, but there is just one shower for a whole section and I would think it could be a problem in the summer when the campground is full. There are no rules for this campground. At least I was not given any and I saw people washing their rigs and not cleaning up after their pets, but maybe they don't care. The staff was the least helpful of any campground I have stayed at. There was bus service to the campground, but they didn't tell you or hand out schedules. Who know what else was going on? But if you want a place close to town you can't beat this campground

This is a very nice campground that the owners have put a lot of money and thought into. The restrooms and laundry and very clean. The staff is very helpful. The pull thru sites and wide and have a nice grass area-- no campfires allowed. The back in sites seem fine have more shade and allow campfires. There is a nice pool and two hot tubs. The only reason they did not get a 10 is the poor Wi-Fi service. It is free, but only worked right outside the office. They say they are working on it, but if you say you have free Wi-Fi I think it should be through out the park. They have several services, such as a restaurant, ice cream parlor and tour bus pick up. The only problem was they do not open until around the 15th of June. I hear the food is very good and the ice cream good, but they were not serving when I was here. The entrance is well marked and road in is paved and very nice. The roads in the park and sites are gravel and well kept. One other thing, and they have no control over this, the TV reception is terrible-- you get one channel. I understand cable is not available up here, but if you have a dish, they have sites that will enable you to use it. I would stay here again-- would love to check out the breakfast!

As per other reviews, restrooms were clean. Also laundry facility was well kept and modern equipment. Sites are level and gravel, and close together, but there is at least a tree and table between each site. Off of the main roads, so park is quiet at night. Just enough lighting at night and not over lit. I didn't use Wi-Fi, it was over $10 / day. There was free cable and it had plenty of options. Owners were very accommodating, but often you had to go find them. It is conveniently located on the edge of town where there is gas and food. It is a good base camp for enjoying the park. It could use some grass and a fence in the back. There are some neighbors with big dogs that run around the back edge of the park. Would probably stay at Grizzly if I return.

Hard to give a good rating to a campground that charges $45 a night for a site and then says if you want to take a shower it is $3.50 extra! This is a full hook up campground right between Jackson Hole and Yellowstone in the Grand Teton National Park. I was here early in the season and the park was not too full and we had a great site. No neighbor to one side. The roads into the sites are paved, but a bit narrow. If everyone does not get totally out of the road it can be quite a squeeze getting by. Site are fairly level, but just dirt. You can get wi-fi at the cabin office, but cell reception is off and on. Very convenient location for touring both parks and there are a lot of activities, a store, a couple of places to eat, a marina and nice laundry facility. Best place around for touring the parks. I would stay again

This is a great overnight campground. Located between Rock Springs and Jackson Hole in Boulder Co. Just past mile marker 87 on Hwy 191. Large level gravel sites. Most are pull thrus. Nice people. Full hook-ups-- what more can you ask for an overnight? Much nicer than some we passed on I-80. Would stay again.

This is not the campground for you to use if you want a wilderness experience. There are plenty of campgrounds in Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park for those of you who want that type of camping. This park is very convenient to the Park and the town of Estes Park. The staff is very nice and helpful. The Wi-Fi is strong and free. The sites are level, back in sites and very close together. Our site was great, in that we did not have a neighbor on one side. Nice picnic table and great views of the mountains. They do not have 50 amp service, but do have cable and sewer. The park is clean and well kept and I would stay here again. They are booked solid from about June 1 to the end of August.

This campground is located right off I-70. It is fine for an overnight stop. The directions into the campground a difficult and you might miss it. The sites are level and easy to get in and out of. Passport America rate makes it a good deal. It was raining and there seemed to be fair drainage. I would not want to stay here for more than a night, but for an overnight it is fine.

Nice campground for touring Branson. Off the main strip so it is quiet. The sites are fairly level and you have full hook-up, cable and free Wi-Fi. Our site was a bit short, but not too cramped. Rest rooms were nice and clean and the laundry was large and clean. People are very nice and helpful and take you to your site and make sure you can get in. Even came back and trimmed some limbs so they would not rub my awning. Overall great value if you are using passport America!

This is the not the campground you want to go to if you are looking for a back to nature experience. However, if you a going through Vicksburg or staying here for the battlefield or casinos you can't beat the place. Nice pull through sites that are paved. Full hook-ups including cable. A small pool and clean laundry. Free shuttle to the casino and you can catch public bus at the casino to all the other casinos or downtown. Nice place although there is no shade and the sites are close together, but hardly a parking lot

Very nice park. Sites are situated around a lake and many have lake views. The park is easy to find and the roads leading in are easy to navigate. The personnel seemed ready to help. You have to be careful in booking your site as some are not very deep and if you have a big rig, you would be in trouble. The only thing that kept the park from getting a 10 were the laundry facilities and bath houses. Both are in serious need of updating. We had planned to do laundry, but the machines were full of grass,leaves and bugs! The looked like they had not been cleaned in a long time. Inside the bath houses the stalls were in need of painting and updating-- bare plywood does not cut it. Showers were small and not very clean. This could be a great campground with a little maintenance.

I cannot give it a 10 since it does not have sewer. But it is a very nice camp ground. The sites are wide and well spaced with nice new picnic tables and gravel surface. Easy to get level. The bath houses were spotless. It is about a 1/4 mile walk to the beach over a new boardwalk. the beach is wide and clean with white sand. the only negative is that there is some road noise. the park is located right off the main highway and there is shopping and a WalMart right at the entrance to the park. There is no cable or wifi.

I do not rate a park a 10 unless it has sewer. So the best this park could do was a 9 and it deserved it. The sites are very spacious and easy to get into. There is a lot of space between sites and you can barely see your neighbor. The sites are nice and level and each have a picnic table and fire ring. There is not a lot to do at this park except walk, ride bikes and watch for wildlife. There are canoe rentals and you can launch your own boat in the Silver River, but it is a good 1/2 mile trek to get to the launch site. There is no swimming or fishing in the river at the park. You are not far from Silver Springs Amusement Park or downtown Ocala. Very quiet at night and the rest rooms and showers were very clean and modern. Would stay there again in a heartbeat

This is our 4th trip to Gamble Rogers. It is one of our favorite campgrounds in Florida. It has nothing except the beach and it is right on the beach. There are about 24 RV site and then some tent sites. All are level and if you are over 38 feet long, you may stick out of the site. They are level and wide, but not real long. Our site, number 5 faced the beach and we had great views of the ocean and the wildlife. They have lost all but two of their walks to the beach, but it still not too far to get down to the beach. The campground is clean and quiet and they have a locking gate that is in place 24 hours a day. There is access to the inland water way across the road. There is not much to do here if you do not like the beach. There is a paved walk into town and we biked there for lunch one day, about 3 miles each way. Rangers are nice and helpful and keep the place clean. I will go back. Only got an 8 because it has no sewers.

This is not the place to go if you want rustic camping. It is right on a main highway and the sites are very close together. On the plus side, the campground is right on the water. Our site had water on two sides and lovely views. The rest rooms and showers are old in design, but were very clean. There are a number of washers and dryers, I assume because of the large number of snowbirds who stay here in the winter. The sites are all grass and have a nice concrete patio. It would be nice if they were gravel, since they can get a bit muddy when it rains. The people who run the place are very nice and helpful. There are a lot of boat slips and I would guess in the winter they are full. There is fishing right at the park and easy access to the gulf. Another nice feature is that the trolley stops right outside the park and so for 25 cents you can ride to the beach or to the nearby shopping centers. You can even carry your bike on the bus. There is a pool and hot tub at the campground, but it was too cold when were here to try them out. Be aware that if you have a big rig, parking might be tricky in prime season. We had no problem, but the place was almost empty.

Just returned from our fourth visit to this park. It is a great park. It does not have sewer hook ups, and the bath house could use some work. Also, I have noticed that the roads could use some tree trimming. You definitely have to be careful going in, and because they have not trimmed the trees, getting into some of the sites can be quite difficult and could be much easier with some removal of bushes or trees. The sites vary greatly as far as size and ease of getting in and out, and you might want to call if you have a large unit. The views from some of the sites are spectacular, and the bike trails are great. There are two fishing piers, but they are about 2 miles from the campground. the beaches are very nice, but again, are between two and three miles from the campground. The price at the campground keeps going up and they need to take some of the money and devote it to clearing the roads and maintenance. Pets are only allowed in one section. There is wifi, but only at the office. With a little effort this place could be a 9. Oh by the way, be aware that there is an ant problem and you need to bring some spray. Bug spray is also a plus in the summer.

I am currently at this park. It is about my 4th visit and the park is in good shape. It is an old county park that Port Canaveral has taken over. There is a wife variety of sites, from tent only to full hook ups with 50 amp service. Some sites are not very level, sites 107 - 116 are particularly bad, but do accommodate really big rigs. Some sites have shade and other have none. You can get good advice from the staff, there are very helpful. The site I am in, 39, is a bit tight side to side, but had a ton of room to the rear of the unit. It has w/s/e and a pad. There is plenty to do here. The beach is an easy walk from the campground, you do not have to cross any exterior roads. There is a nice fishing pier and bate shop. You can board the gambling boats with a free pick up at the campground. There a some biking trails and a nice new playground. If you are looking for a campground close to the beach, this is a nice one. The staff is helpful and friendly and I will continue to return. A nice new feature is they take Passport America and except for winter months, you can camp here for $20 a night!

This is my third trip to this campground. We really love the location and views from the waterfront sites. The site we had this time was really difficult to get my 35 foot motor home in. If the campsite across the road had not been empty I might not have made it. They really need to trim some tress and remove some that are right along the road. I would check with the office before booking a site if you have a large rig (we were on site 95). The campground does have wi-fi,but only with in 65 feet of the office. So you have to go up there to get on the internet. There are great places to ride a bike here. We rode for over 6 miles. Wide paved paths. The beaches and piers are not too far from the campground and you can boat and fish at the campground itself, just no swimming.The biggest negative to this park is the restrooms. They were built, probably in the 60's, and are showing their age. The tile is cracked and it is difficult to keep the floors clean. There is no A/C and the showers are open at the top. There is a roof, but from the top of the walls to the high roof is open. Probably helps with heat, but allows all sorts of bugs in the restrooms. The staff is very nice and helpful. If they would trim some trees and update the bathhouses they would have a top rate campground.

The campground had no sewers. That is a negative for me. The restrooms were old and antiquated, but were clean. No A/C and rough wood doors. Our site was on the Atlantic loop, we backed up to the dunes, and it was a reasonable walk to the beach. The beach was very nice and we enjoyed walking it. There is another loop, the river loop that fronts on the Amelia river. Those sites have a lot more shade and separation than the sites on the Atlantic loop. The fishing pier is under repair and will not be open for some time. There are extensive biking opportunities, both on and off road. Some nice nature trails and an old civil war fort. If you like the beach and non-resort type camping this is a good place and good value for the money. The old town of Fernandina Beach offers some nice shopping and nice restaurants.

This is my second trip to this park, and I still love it. The sites can be a little tight for rigs over 35 feet, and there are some low hanging tree branches that you have to watch out for. Our site, 95 was a tight fit, but once in we had a great water view, just no room to put out the awning, but there was plenty of shade and the weather was great. There is a small store at the campground, but the prices are high as are their bike rentals. The campground is about 2 miles from the beach. A great bike ride, but the nicest beach is perhaps 5 miles from the campground. There are two fishing piers and it is a great place to ride bikes and plenty of small boat access. If you have a big rig, I'd call and talk to them about a site. I saw a guy who could not get in his site and had to be moved. He was lucky there were sites available. This place is very popular and you usually need to reserve well in advance.

This is a great park if you love the beach. It is small and the beach is right over the dunes. There is biking, by sidewalk, to Flagler Beach. They have a nice market on Fridays. The staff is very nice. The park is quiet and the bath houses are clean. They have suffered some storm damage recently that took out all but two beach ramps. We were there in December, the weather was great and there were only two other people on the beach. The only negative is it very hard to get a site. Only 1/2 the campground can accommodate motorhomes and large travel trailers. But if you like the beach and are not put off by small campgrounds this is a great palce.

Very nice park. The people who run it are very nice. The only negative is the extra charges they impose. Cable is $3.00 a day; Wi-Fi is $3.95 a day and if you have over two people you pay extra. That aside, the park is well kept, the pools are nice, the rest rooms are clean and well kept. The sites are not very wide and some of the back in sites are bigger than the pull through sites. But they tried very hard to accommodate me and my unit. My site was a pull through and paved and level. Had a nice patio and table. It rained fairly heavily and the site was well drained and we had no problems. The resort has a golf course and it is easy to bike to stores and places to eat. There is a nice bike trail around the lake (150 miles +) that is near by and paved. I would guess the place is a crowded from Jan - March.

First of all-- I am not sure why this is called a "resort". It is a campground right off Hwy 19. That aside, it is a fine place to stay. The sites were mostly grass or sand, but pretty level. Had nice wifi and it was free. Cable TV is extra. The campground is within walking distance of several nice places to eat and a WalMart. Nice place to stay if you are on the way to someplace, but certainly not a destination type place. New owners are trying hard to please.

Made a return visit to this campground. It has a new manager and they are trying to improve the place. The upkeep is still the biggest negative. The location, right on the beach is still the biggest positive. Lots to do at the park. There are bike/walking trails. It has a free fishing pier. Free rides to the gambling boats. During our stay, it rained like cats and dogs. Our site was fine, but some of the low lying sites flooded. Need to check out your site. They are now a Passport America campground, so you can save, esp during the off-season. Staff is very friendly--even went out and got me some dog bones for my dog, since I forgot them!

This is a really nice campground. Each site is individually owned, so some are better than others. You can also rent directly from the owner at a cheaper rate, but you have to drive around the campground and find the signs and then call. They have an adult pool, a family pool and a kiddie pool. Also have a hot tub. You can get free wifi at the lodge and by the pool, not at the sites. Site are generally pretty good size and most are paved. There are a bunch of activities, a couple of cafes, and a very nice camp store. People are very nice, but strangely the office is not open on the week-ends and you can only make reservation by phone. The only negative is that there is almost no cell reception at the park. Otherwise a great place to stay for a few days if you like being on the water.

I had not been here in many years. It is one of the great RV parks in America. I do think it is showing its age. The site we were in (603) was wonderful. Very level paved site and a nice creek to the rear. Not a far walk to the bike barn to rent bikes and golf carts and the pool was nearby too. Had a full hook up site and since my grandson was coming up graded to a premium site. Was very easy to get to all the parks and everyone was very helpful. The only complaint one might have is that the showers are not as plentiful as one might like. I would suggest bring a bike or renting a golf cart. It is at least a mile from one end to the other. Place was Disney clean! I know that the price can get high, but you are well located and there are more things to do than you will have time to do them! Wish they would sell time shares in the sites as part of the Disney Vacation club!

After reading all the reviews, I was ready to see a really great campground. What I saw was a nice campground. The sites are tight and not easy to get in with a 34 foot motorhome. After I got in site 80, I found out that the electric was at one end of the site and the water at the other. If I got close enough to the electric I was right at the front of the site and could not open the door or awning. If I got in the center, I could not hook up electricity. I checked at the camp store and they suggested a 16 guage extension cord, I was not really sure that would handle 30 amps. So I was able to move to another site. Site 84 was a really tight squeeze. Lots of overhanging limbs and trees at angles into the site. But by taking it slow and having some help I was able to get in the site. Now everyone has touted the beach here. The only problem is the beach is about a mile or so from the campground and then you have to hike over a boardwalk for about another 1/2 mile. When it is 98 degrees this is a chore! But the beach is very nice once you get there. There appear to be a lot of things to do here-- they rent almost any kind of water toy you might want. There are some bike paths and it is very close to downtown St.Augustine. I think the campground needs updating and you have to be careful booking your site. It does not have sewer, but does have a very large dump station. Lots to do, but not close to the beach!

First of all, I do not give any campground a 10 that does not have sewer hook-ups. So 9 was the best this campground could get. It would have gotten a 9, if the rest rooms had been as clean when we arrived as they were when we left. They power cleaned them while we were there. They are not the best design, in that the walls do not go to the ceiling and there are a lot of critters in Florida! One of the showers did not have hot water. So no 9. Otherwise this is a very nice campground. There is a special section for campers with pets and the sites are very nice. Lots of shade and bushes etc between sites. Our site backed up to the water and we could fish right at the back of the site. The roads are a bit tight, but we managed just fine in a motorhome. Roads in the campground are not paved, but pretty well taken care of. The campground is about a mile from the main part of the park. There are great bike trails that go everywhere and even places to rent bikes and boats. There are two fishing piers and miles of nice beach-- just hard to get to from the campground. Might be a bad selection if you do not have a car and want to hit the beach, but otherwise a very nice campground.

This campground gets a 10 for everything they can control- the restrooms were spotless and even had a/c. The pool was nice and clean and the grounds were well kept. The sites were big and had nice shade trees and each site had a paved area and picnic table. The sites themselves are pretty level and paved. Roads in and out are paved and easy to navigate. They do not have fire rings at each site, but have a campfire area with benches and they get the fire going every night. Very nice people who lead you to your site and do everything they can to make your stay enjoyable. The only negative is that it is Starke and there is not much to do there. But it is a great place to stop on 301. But don't rely on mapquest. The park is located right on 301 about 2 miles south of downtown Starke. If you need to be in the area, this is the place to stay! Oh they have 50 amp service at all sites and the WiFi is free and works well throughout the park

This park could be a 10. It has a great location, right on the beach and there is a ton of stuff to do around the park. The biggest negative is the maintenance. The sites are not very clean and the roads need work. They are full of pot holes. If you get a site without a pad, it may be very uneven and hard to level your unit. The staff is very helpful and work hard to help the camper out. The beach is very nice and easily within walking distance. There is pier fishing and a bait shop. Great place to watch a shuttle launch! Sites have a variety of services, 20, 30 and 50 amp. Some have water and sewer, some just water. The only way to make a reservation is calling the park directly. Site are fairly easy to get in and out. Can be crowded if a shuttle launch is scheduled. When the place is full, the bathhouses get a bit dirty, but otherwise pretty clean.

First of all I won't give a campground a 10 unless it has sewer. So the best that this campground could get was a 9. This is not the place for people who want a pool and a lot of activities. But if you want a nice small campground on the beach with nice people and a clean bath house, this is for you. It is right on the ocean and many of the sites have ocean views. There is also a marina and fishing area across A1A. The bath house is clean, but not air conditioned. There is no store or laundry: those are located in Flagler Beach, about 3 miles north. By the way Flagler Beach is not an RV friendly town. There is a nice place to eat, about 2 blocks from the campground. The roads and sites are sand and firmly packed. Sites 25-36 can only hold a tent or 20 foot RV. The rangers keep the place clean and the beach is right over the dunes via boardwalks!

Very nice campground undergoing extensive renovations. They are selling lots and it will become an member owned campground. Currently lots are running about $35,000. The park is clean and you can rent canoes to use on the Silver River. Not too far from Silver Springs. If you are looking for a clean modern campground this is one you might want to check out. Sites are large, but there is little privacy and there is a lot of construction. There is a small cafe on the grounds.

If they had sewers they would get a 10. Nice state park campground. Sites are very big and they have a number of pull throughs. Roads are easy to get around. Great place for a bike. The river is nice, but you have to have your own watercraft. They do not rent any. Not far from Silver Springs Park.

This is not the park to go to if you are looking for a rustic experience. The sites are fairly small and most are paved. All have sewer and water and electricity. It is the park to go to if you want to be near the beach. The park is located on the beach side of the highway and you can walk right onto the beach from the campground. The beach is wide and very nice. The biggest negative I found was the constant extra charges the campground imposes. It is $5 a person a day for over two to a site. It is $2 a day for your dog. These extras can mount up. There is no weekly rate, but they do have some discounted monthly rates. Bath houses were clean and do not receive a lot of use. All of the sites are privately owned and many have park models on them. A number of the RV sites, including ours, had a nice covered deck so you did not even have to put out your awning. The staff was friendly and knowledgable about the area. I would camp here again-- so long as there were just two in the motorhome
