Although the rest of Jekyll Island is wonderful, the campground itself is older and in need of updates. The sites are very tight and narrow. Our particular campsite was "awning to awning" with our neighbor, as we had opposite direction pull through sites. Most of the interaction we had with other campers were with those who were wintering over, and we were definitely treated with open rudeness as outsiders. Though the rest of Jekyll Island is very kid-friendly, the campground itself is not, as there are no playgrounds and kids acting like kids is frowned upon. Though I will come to visit Jekyll Island again, I will not stay at this campground.

An absolutely wonderful Georgia State Park. We stayed in site 37, which is the only back-in site in the campground. The site was fairly level, and was positioned in such a way as to give the illusion of privacy, and being the only people in the campground. The fort was well worth the price of admission, and my three boys loved it. It is about a 5 minute bike ride to the fort from the campsites. There are good trails for trail riding with kids. I would definitely stay here again.

Another wonderful Florida State Park. We stayed in the Shark Eye loop, site 38, I believe. It was fairly level and easy to get in to. The sites are huge with good separation between sites. The beach was about a 5 minute bike ride away, and was never crowded. We are definitely looking forward to staying here again.

We stayed here over the 4th of July Weekend. Rate is based on staying in one of their Red Carpet Sites. This was our second time to stay here, and it was wonderful. We were in site 208, which was a level back-in site on top of the hill overlooking the playground and pools. There were wonderful mountain views everywhere. My kids enjoyed the water slide, paddle boats, and pools. Everything was clean. New this year was laser tag, which was fun. The only reason I gave this campsite an 8 instead of a 10 was that during "peak usage" hours, I had almost 0 water pressure at my site. I would definitely camp here again.

This campground is great. We were escorted to our site (Evergreen 17), which was more or less level, and extremely spacious. The site was all grass, which the kids and dog loved. With the grass sites and the paved roads, there was no dust to speak of. There were numerous activites throughout our stay that the kids enjoyed. There is a nice swimming lake with a sand beach that was clean. The lake had a trampoline in the middle of it, and a dock to jump off of. My kids also enjoyed fishing in the lake. There are also two pools that were spotless. As has been stated in previous posts, there is a large number of seasonals, but they were all extremely nice to us, and we didn't feel like outsiders at all. There are lots of golf carts driving around, but it was not dangerous to me or my young kids. If you are camping with young children, I would recommend camping in the "back" part of the camprground near Evergreen Street. It is less crowded, and the kids can safely ride their bikes around the sites there. The Wi-Fi was strong, and I was able to connect with no problems. I would definitely stay here again.

After reading all of the previous posts on this campground (after I had already made my reservation), I was worried that I was going to be "stalked" by obsessive camp workers all weekend over minor rule infractions. Fortunately, this was not the case, and actually left me wondering what everyone else was talking about. The owners and workers were all extremely nice, and seemed to go out of there way to make sure that my family was having a great time. The jumping pillow is great, and let my 6, 5, and 2 year old boys burn off all of their energy. The WiFi signal was strong from our campsite. A full recycle bin of wood is available for purchase for around $3, and is delivered to your site and stacked next to your fire ring. The pool was extremely clean. You have to pay a nightly rate for cable TV, as was mentioned in other posts. We were in site 31, which is a back-in site. The site required minimal leveling, and had a thin layer of gravel down. One thing I did notice was that the pull-through sites appeared to actually have more room between the sites than the back-in sites did. I will definitely be returning to this campground again soon.

This campground is literally right down the road from us, and we stayed here to get the RV ready for another season. In the past he have stayed in the "D" loop, and had no problems. This time, however, we were placed in the "E" loop, and could not get level front to back with 5 leveler blocks under the front tires. Our back and front end hung out into the roadway on either side. The manager is getting the pool up and running again after the winter, and it looks really clean. The campground itself is well-maintained and I would definitely stay here again, just not in the "E" loop.

We stayed here again while going to Hershey Park's Christmas celebration over the Thanksgiving weekend. Due to the cold temperature, water was already cut off to the sites, but there was a fill station available in the campground. The sites in the Woodlands area of the Campground are pull-thru sites of varying lengths, but are narrow. Wi-Fi has great reception in the Woodlands area of the campground, though you do have to pay for it. I believe our rate was $8 for three days. The Camp Store has a great selection, and reasonable prices. The shuttle buses to Hershey Park ran every 15-30 minutes starting an hour before the Park opened for the day. I would definitely stay here again.

Nice, small campground. Used this as a chance for a quick spur-of-the-moment camping trip close to home. The roads are narrow, as are the sites, but we had ample room for our slideouts. WiFi worked good, and there appeared to be WiFi pole mounted on every loop. The pool was very clean, as was the rest of the campground. The new managers of this campground definitely have pride in ownership, and no detail is too small. The managers threw a s'mores roast on Saturday night that my kids loved. I will definitely camp here again.

Great campground. We stayed here twice during our trips to and from Texas this month. The pool is nice, and the campground is very appealing to the eye, even if the sites are a little tight. We would definitely stay here again.

No activities to speak of, but an adequate place to stop for the night. There is a little playground for the little ones, and the a small pool as well. We would stop for the night here again.

My family loved this campground. From the moment you check in, you know that the owners really love their job. The rules and activities are "read" to you by a buck mounted on the wall that "talks." The pool is wonderful, and the hot tub was inviting. There is a large field to walk in, as well as a doggie park for those with four legs. I would stay here again.

This is a great KOA. My kids loved the "bouncing pillow" so much, they requested we stop here again on our way home from our trip to Texas, and we did. There is a nice pool that has a waterside, the aforementioned "bouncing pillow," and horse rides. The location is easy to get to off of the highway, and no traffic noise could be heard. The pizza was welcome after a day of driving. The only downside was the extremely dusty gravel roads. We would defintly stay here again.

This is a very basic campground with no activities, playgrounds, etc. However, it is on the grounds of the Space Center, and is within walking distance to the museum. The museum itself is in the process of getting some much needed TLC, and though we planned for a full day of looking around at all of the rockets, they were falling apart (literally) so we only stayed for a few hours.

Like most of the other posts have stated, this is an older park, with narrow sites and traffic noise due to its location sandwiched between I-95 and Route 1. The first site I was taken to was so narrow that I could not open my main door due to trees. The road to get to this site was a narrow gravel road with severe washout, that left me wishing that I had folded in my side view mirrors. The staff was very nice and allowed me to move to a more open site. This site was near the main office, and was spacious enough for both a slideout and an awning. There was a newer playground for the kids, which was very nice, but the play area was covered by about three to four inches of pine needles, which made footing very slippery for the little ones (ages 4, 3, and 1). The free wifi was strong in signal strength. Only off-ground campfires are allowed on site, though they do have large communal fire pits availible for use. I used this campground as a place closeby to shakedown a new RV, and would use it again for that purpose, or for an overnight.

Good place to stop on the way home from Disney. There was a large playground for the kids, as well as an inviting and clean hot tub. There was an onsite pizza parlor that delivers to your campsite. The sites were fairly level.

What can I say? We stayed in the 1600 "pet loop" from Dec 15-20. The site was raked clean, with all pavement swept before we got there. Our site was large. It looked like Disney had recently cleared some trees trying to "open up" the site a little, and it was fine. The campground is large, and with a 3 boys (4, 3, and 1), the golf cart rental made perfect sense to us. We usually ate breakfast at the Trails End buffet, which was very convenient. The pools were open, heated, and clean. The transportation to the Disney parks was easy and fast. There is so much to do at Ft. Wilderness that we could have spent our entire trip at the campground. There is a petting zoo, pony rides, and the Chip and Dale singalong campfire nightly. We are already planning our next trip down.

We stopped here on the way to Disney's Fort Wilderness. It was a nice, clean place to camp for the night. The owners were very helpful, and stopped by the site to make sure everything was OK for us. It is easy to get to from I-95, and there is a BBQ next door. I will definitely stay here again on trips South again, but would hesitate staying longer than a night because there is not a playground for the kids. A real nice, quiet place.

My family went stayed here so we could go to the Hershey Park "Candylane" Christmas-time celebration. The section of the campground that we were in was pretty much full, and as has been mentioned in previous reviews, the sites are kind close in. Due to the night-time temperatures, water was turned off nightly, but the campground staff gave plenty of warning so everyone could top off their tanks. As for the activities at Hershey Park, it was awesome. Our kids are younger (4, 3, and 1), and most of the rides open during their Christmas-themed days are appropriate for that age group. We got reduced rate tickets from the campground office that saved us about 20%. The shuttle bus runs to Hershey Park about every half-hour, and was extremely reliable. The drivers were all courteous, and helped us stow our stroller. As others have mentioned, there is a train that runs nearby, but we could not hear it inside out motorhome. We would definitely stay here again.

There were so many things for our kids to do at this park. We camped in the upper area of the campground, and did not notice the golf cart problems that others have experienced. The playground is nice, as is the pool. The fishing pond was algea covered, so it was hard for my little ones to cast that far on their own, but they still managed to catch a fish. Now that summer was over, I asked my 4 and 3 year olds what the best part of their summer was, and they both state that "Raising the Flag with Yogi" was tops! We will definitely go back next year.

My kids love coming to this park. The nighlty rate was based on a 10% military discount. The swimming pools were clean, and not too crowded. We stayed in the back part of the park, and were not bothered at all by the highway noise that other reviewers have mentioned.

We were here for the campground's annual Halloween Festival. Our family had a great time with the haunted house, as well as other activities that were age-appropriate for 5 and under. The pool and swimming beach are closed for the season, but mini-golf and the driving range were still open. We look forward to coming back soon.
