We did a overnight here and was OK for that. Seemed to be a "permanent" campground. Mostly trailers. Seemed to be clean, and owner friendly. I think it was overpriced for what it is. Would not use except as an overnight.

This is mostly a park model campground on the St. John River. There is a small area for RVer's that is all pull thrus/super sites. These sites are toward the back and not on the river, but are very nice. They are about $20 more than the regular sites, but I recommend those for the big rigs. The park is easy to navigate (we were in a 41 ft. motorhome). The people are very friendly and helpful. We found the Swamp River Grill to be a lot of fun (good music) and the clubhouse has a pool table and a lot of planned activities. They have a place to store a boat if you bring one, and boat slips - ask about storage fees. They have an eco-tour boat ride. About 1 hour from Epcot/Disney/Seaworld. About 1/2 hour to several state parks, downtown Orlando, Daytona, and Mt. Dora.

This is a nice park that seems to be very busy, especially on weekends. I think a lot of clubs use it to do winery tours and college football games. We stop here frequently to visit family in Charlottesville and to attend the many music festivals. We camped in a 41 ft. motorhome and did not have trouble maneuvering the campsite. There is an upper level on top of the mountain that is very nice for smaller campers and also has log cabins. There is a pool and a game room. Their camp store is very nice, and the people are friendly and helpful. The only reason I did not give it a 10 is that quite a few of the sites are small and too close together, and you end up with your picnic table too close to the next camper's sewer hookup. We used Sam's Club discount.

This was one of the most beautiful state parks we have been in during our travels of the U.S. Was well maintained, clean, quiet, and had large lots. We traveled here for the Wanee Festival, which is held at the Spirit of the Suwanee park. This particular park holds many festivals that are a lot of fun. There is also the Stephen Foster Festival that is a lot of fun. You may have to find another campsite for that festival as the slots go to venders and entertainers first. However, there are a couple of campsites nearby: Lee's/Kelly's/Suwanne River. I would choose Lee's first since I have a big rig and I just need a base camp without frills, but clean. We will be going back to Stephen Foster's! (Note: there's a lot of kayaking on the Suwanee River.)

Not a lot of scenery for the RV area, but it met all the needs. We stopped over night to visit family. it is a 666 acre park at the edge of Everglades Conservation Area. It has a model airplane field, tennis/racket ball, biking & jogging trail, swimming pool w/ mist pool, snack bark, lockers & showers. Lakes for fishing and boating. Nature & equestrian trails. Picnic areas w/ tables & grills. Also a large dog park, and a target range. The pictures show a "green" park, but it was rather barren when we were there. But close to Ft. Lauderdale and easy on/off the freeway.

This was a beautiful campground with old mossy oaks, and fun people. I would definitely come back here. Close to beach and the old town was fun. Lots of biking and walking trails. The office doesn't have long hours, but if you are scheduled to come in and are arriving after the check in time, there will be a camp host looking for you to direct you to your campsite.

I am not sure about the rate, but I'm guessing in that ballpark. Although we were in a back in next to the beach, you could not see the ocean and beach because of a large sand dune. However, we were minutes from the gate to the beach which was very nice. Most of this campground is made up of park models, but the area next to the beach seems to be reserved for non-permanent visitors. Tight spaces, but park was clean and maintained. We stayed here to visit old St. Augustine, which was about 1/2 hour away.

It was clean and well maintained. All types of camping from tenting and yurts to Class A motorhomes. Make reservations ahead of time and ask for one of the sites with a pad and view of the river. Really beautiful. Asheville not far away, but we were there for the foliage and hiking. OBEY THE CHECK IN TIME. Once you leave the highway you will be going up a one lane mountain road. Owners fun and polite.

The sites are pretty close together. The number 4 site is the "prime" site and is by the stream. The Crozet Music Festival was going on, and was fun because the music could be heard at your campsite. It was orderly and ended promptly at 10 pm. Location is good to Charlottesville, and wineries. We come because we visit our family. The upper level is nice and wooded but not accessible by big motorhomes. They have a nice office/store and a little deli called Greenwood is just down the road & has some wonderful items. I can't locate my receipt so I might be wrong about the rate.

Camp was full over weekend (leaf-peeping season). We liked our campsite, but we had some difficulty locating the site because the markers are so faded. We were also in a big rig and although we managed, it was a tight squeeze in and out of the site. Note: The hookups are at the opposite end of the motorhome hookups. Our site was A50. Once we were in & leveled (used boards under wheels), it was a nice large space. The view of the mountains was beautiful, and close to Boone, Grandfather Mtn. Park, and Blowing Rock. I would do it again, but would be very specific about my site. There are only a few level sites to accommodate larger RVs. Be careful departing your site if you are in a big rig because the back end of the RV could possibly catch the electric/water posts as you swing out.
