Review applies to lower level of the campground; upper level is a dump and deserves a 1 or 2 rating. Well kept but oddly arranged physical characteristics (lower level bathhouse up a hill away from sites). Big dog running loose on day of our arrival (office said "It's OK, its owner said he's friendly"), pool was closed during our stay with no explanation and certainly no offer of a discount, landscaping timbers and an RV in the site in front of us made it impossible for me to negotiate the turn from our pull-through site; had to back up / turn out of the site to get out with our larger sized fifth-wheel. Better spots were available and I explained our needs ahead of time but like other reviewers said, that did no good. I would only stay here again if the nearby park was full and I could be assured of getting one of two or three specific sites to make arriving / departing bearable.

Not sure what I missed given all the other glowing reviews. Just barely worth the passport america price. No amenities. Our site was in the middle of a small field right beside I95, an airport, racetrack, and neighboring RV with a yappy dog. Nothing but noise in this park. We would not return.

Newer park, immaculately kept, reasonable price, easy access with our larger RV, and great staff. As good as it gets. We would definitely return.

Very pretty setting spoiled by a poor experience from start to finish. Young office staff gave poor directions to park, recent rains made for a muddy mess (up to a foot deep in some parts of park), very narrow sites, shut off our water without notice, bath house not clean (dead bugs and leaking urinal), pricey given that no amenities were open / available. Not sure this park should be rated as big rig accessible as, like the prior poster, our larger fifth wheel dropped onto our truck's bed rails due to the angle of the road and campground entrance. We would not return.

Stayed overnight to have RV serviced nearby. Pricey for an off-season stay with no facilities open; no discounts accepted. Tall pines blocked satellite signal. We would probably not return.

Streets to the park from I-70, entry road, and interior roads of the park were narrow for our larger RV but not so bad if you take your time. Off-season overnight stay. Pro's - Long pull-through site, quiet at night. Very friendly owner. Cons - Site was more dirt than gravel. If we had to be in the area we would stay again.

Sites and common road were somewhat tight for our larger RV and is a muddy mess after any rainfall. Appreciate being able to stay for free to have some service work done on the RV but truly felt like it was only adequate for the price (not) paid. If I were paying to stay here I would deduct a rating point for every dollar per night they charged me.

Nice park for families with children. Price reflects a weeks stay (off-season). Pro's - lots of activities, easy access to and in the park with our larger RV, quiet at night. Cons - pricey if you don't have kids and are just using the park as an overnight or full hookup park to see area sites. We would stay again as it's the only decent place in the area for big rigs.

Nicest overnight along I-95 that we have ever had. Well kept park and facilities. Very nice owners, very easy access to and in the park with our larger RV, and all for a reasonable price. We would certainly use this park again for an overnight or to see the area.

Awesome campground that is exactly as described by prior positive reviews. Easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Ocean sounds make for a great night's sleep. Looking forward to our next stay here.

Aesthetically a very nice park and close to Charleston with easy access for our larger RV. Cons: Pricey (reflects a weeks stay). I must have had the same site as the prior reviewer as I really sunk in the mud and gravel site I was assigned to. Fuzzy cable was unwatchable. The park was mostly empty, but RV's were packed in on top of each other in the same row / very narrow spaces. The neighbor's sewer connection was under our site's picnic table directly out our RV's door. Plethora of obnoxious speed bumps and an office employee who scolded us at (maybe) 11 mph. Seriously, how fast could I have been going in 50 feet between speed bumps?

Pricey for an overnight stop with no amenities; no cable, no pool, and WiFi unusable. Low branches and tight roads for our larger RV. Friendly owner claims satellite TV hookups but it didn't work while we were there. We would not return.

Reasonably priced (reflects week's stay), full hookups, quiet at night, friendly staff and guests, and very easy access with our larger RV. Only negative: Advertising a rounded corner of the pool as a "spa" is a bit of a stretch. We would return.

As posted in my prior review, this is a wonderful park at a very reasonable rate. When making reservations you must view the online campground map and assure you are given an adequate sized site for your RV by the hourly female office workers. We were assigned a 40 foot site for our 38' RV. We couldn't even get in the site, and would have had nowhere to park our tow vehicle. We saw several others arrive with the same issue. We would certainly stay again, but will always double check our site assignment.

For the Passport America rate this is a great deal. Very easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Level pull through and good working utilities. We would return.

This is a nice campground, super quiet at night, but pretty expensive for a rural park near no attractions and without cable and internet. AT&T cell service very poor, if any signal at all. Pool was nice, but dirty during our overnight stay. Easy access to and in the park with our larger sized RV, if you follow directions on their website. Would stay again only if we had to be near something specific in the area, otherwise its way too expensive for a campground with limited amenities and no nearby attractions.

Price is $104 per night AFTER Good Sam discount. It is ridiculously expensive, but our site was literally just steps from the beach / ocean. Quiet at night and super easy access to and in the park for our extra large RV. Many well maintained amenities. We would stay here again, but couldn't afford to stay very long in the ocean front sites. Did I mention it was expensive?

Expensive, advertised the big water slide as an amenity on web site but conveniently neglected to mention that there is an extra charge ($6 per person per hour). Car traffic in the park and train horns after midnight / during early morning hours of our stay. Easy access to and in park for our larger size RV. Other RV park choices in area are worse so your choice is to stay here and endure the high price and noise or travel quite a distance from a better RV park for Williamsburg attractions.

Pretty typical KOA. Nice owners and well kept grounds, easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Expensive, just off highway so some traffic noise, train and whistle noise at night, and a dog running loose during our stay. Pull through not long enough for our RV and truck so we were directed to park at a tent site across the street which turned into a muddy mess when it rained. Next time in the area we would try to find someplace quieter at night and more reasonably priced even if it meant not having sewer.

Not fancy, but full hookups. Easy access to and in the park with our larger size RV. Very quiet at night (no adjacent railroad tracks as is the case with other area RV parks), and just about the nicest owners we have found during our travels. We would certainly return and stay here again.

Everything we look for in an RV park: quiet at night, super easy access to and in the park with our larger RV (biggest pull-through site we have EVER had), a very nice owner, and very reasonably priced. At the rate the owner is working to improve this park it will be a 10 in short order. If in the area again, this is the place we would stay.

Very nice setting and very quiet at night. Stayed in a premium pull-through site and although there is no sewer, there are grey water drain pits near every few sites (our sewer hose with extension reached one) and a new dump station at park exit. A short mildly steep hill on entry road to river-side of campground and roads were narrow but looked worse than they really were; We went slow and neither were the slightest problem with our larger RV. We would return.

Well kept park and quaint country setting, super nice owners, unusable Wi-Fi internet. AT&T cell coverage not good. Dead quiet at night. Rate reflects one night stay with Passport America with 50 amp electric and water site. Very easy to negotiate to and in the park with our larger RV. A great deal with PA, paying full rate maybe not so much. We would stay here again with PA rate.

Nicest park in the area. We were near the lake - no WiFi signal. Very nice like-new facilities and a very reasonable rate. Super easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Rate reflects weekly stay. If visiting the area we would certainly stay again.

Mostly permanents with a dozen or so spaces for transients. Sites are packed together with most having crushed gravel, ours was sand, interior roads are tight for larger RV's. Common areas are nicely landscaped with flowers but I thought the permanent units still made the park feel drab. Convenient to I75 but no highway noise. No pool, bathhouses were clean but desperately need a coat of paint - not at all appealing. This was an overnight stay for us on the way back north and the man we spoke with ahead of our stay wouldn't let us reserve a site and get the Passport America rate on a Monday night, instead he insisted we could only use Good Sam discount (10%) if we reserved, then he "forgot" the Good Sam discount when we checked in and tried to charge the regular rate of $39. This park is worth the Passport America rate but not the standard rate I was charged. We would not stay again.

State park feel with commercial park amenities. Spacious wide sites that are super easy to back into. Good WiFi at our site that was near the front gate. Price reflects weeks stay. We would return.

Negatives: cable provided but very few channels unless one gets an adapter from the local cable company, no wifi at site, expensive (nightly rate reflects discounted rate for a week's stay). Positives: Immaculate resort, three pools, two hot tubs, exercise room, small golf course, beautiful clubhouse, activity building for the many groups, clubs, and get-togethers. We would gladly stay here again.

Highway noise from I-75. Oriented more towards seasonal owners than transients. Nice clubhouse, pool, and hot tub, otherwise park feels a bit dated. Access in the park OK for a larger RV. Rate reflects a week's stay.

I felt like I was staying in the median strip of Interstate 95; the noise from traffic was relentless and nonstop. Small pool was dirty during our entire stay. Rate reflects a weeks stay. We were happy to leave and would not return.

This was the most expensive park we have ever stayed at and although I generally feel one gets what they pay for, I didn't exactly feel that way at this very expensive park. Immaculately kept, nicely landscaped, a very nice activity building with library, exercise room, gaming tables, billiards, and frequent meals and dances. Tennis courts, bocci ball, a beautiful swimming pool and hot tub. Given the price I would have expected cable (there is none) and WiFi internet (tengo internet was unusably slow even for just email during our weeks stay). Price paid reflects a weekly stay in a pull-through site. Very easy access to and in the park with our extra large RV. I would not pay the standard price to stay here again but would pay the discounted "special" price they frequently advertise on their web page for a $99 weekend stay.

After experiencing some issues last year (difficult site and barking dogs) I spoke with a park manager who told me that to avoid the issues we should next time request an "easy" access rated site in a non-pet loop. I booked a premium site this year and upon check-in was assigned a site in a no-pet loop rated "difficult" to get into. Another site was assigned (across the street in the same loop) and I promptly discovered the RV on one side of us had a big dog, the RV on the other side had two small dogs, an RV two spaces away had a dog, and the RV across the street had a very big dog that barked often while the owner was away all day. The front desk's response was that the other RV's never told them they had pets and offered to let me move (no sense since I could wind up in another no-pet loop in the same situation). Fort Wilderness is immaculate with nice family friendly amenities and activities but as a prior reviewer stated I get the feeling their cast member quality is fraying around the edges. Price reflects the rate for a stay at Fort Wilderness only, no park tickets.

Very well kept park, friendly owners, very easy access with larger RV, convenient to I95 yet no traffic noise. Pricey for an overnight stop. Unless we found something else cheaper in the area we would stay again.

Site was deceivingly unlevel towards the front, fifth wheel could not stay connected to the truck, but motorhomes would probably be OK without having to unhook towed vehicles. Noticed others were assigned level sites, some with concrete pads. Close to the highway, very easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. Quiet at night. Good for an overnight stop, albeit a bit pricey for the off-season and no amenities other than full hookups, but it is convenient to I-81 and I-77. We would stay again as an overnight stop.

Super nice office staff and manager. Water pressure was low but bearable. Easy access to the park with our larger RV but turns are tight at the end of each row and there was very little room to park our tow vehicle at the sites. Biting flies were terrible in the area for the week we stayed. Rate reflects a week's stay. We would return.

Very nice, well maintained, nicely landscaped, facilities all looked relatively new, friendly staff. Very quiet at night, no traffic or other extemporaneous noise. Slept very good here. Super easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. We really enjoyed our stay here and would very much look forward to coming back to stay again.

Rate reflects weekly stay / discount. No-frills type park; basically a full hook-up parking lot, asphalt roads and each pull-through site / pad is concrete. Most are level; the ones that aren't are deceptively unlevel. Active train tracks and highway nearby, but at least the trains don't sound their horns, so you just hear them rumbling past. Not great, not bad, but certainly far better than any of the other parks in the area. We would stay here again.

Beautiful park with grounds that are immaculately maintained, just far enough away from the highway for a very quiet night's sleep. Two pools and a hot tub, fanciest clubhouse I have ever seen in an RV park, very nice staff, and all for a fair price. Very easy access to and in the park with our extra large RV. This park is great for an overnight or as a destination in and of itself. One of the nicest parks we have ever stayed at. We would definitely stay here again.

I couldn't have been in the same park that prior reviewer's were, rating this park with 8's and 9's seems extremely generous to me, if not completely irrational. This park is a small group of RV spaces on the side of a small grassy hill with some gravel sprinkled about the drives and pull-through site areas, but mostly grass. By strictest definition the "lake" is more a small Louisiana swamp, complete with its own resident alligator. The internet / Wi-Fi is ridiculously slow even with only five other RV's in the park, but given the area it is probably the best that they have access to. Bathrooms not very impressive and had a terrible smell in both. Price paid is after Passport America discount - cash or check only. Far from the highway, but there was continuous truck noise from the logging / lumber operation across the street. Trucks and buzz saws started early in the evening and lasted all night until we left in the morning. As if the lumber operation didn't make it hard enough to sleep, the dumpster was emptied at exactly 3:58 am by one of those big diesel trash trucks that lifts the dumpster up and you can hear the lids slam as it is emptied - now I know why the owners put it at the far end of the park (such as it is in this tiny park) away from their home. Choices are few and far between in this area, but if traveling through here again I would plan my route so as to stop short or go further down the road to avoid staying here again.

This park is basically a residential home with about a dozen RV sites in the front yard and a very long back yard with a central drive straight through to the back and a row of RV sites on each side. Sites are pull through's and the park and sites were easy to negotiate with our larger RV, although park road was very rough; they need new blacktop very badly. Very nicely kept and landscaped around the house and pool, which was spotlessly clean albeit very small for a campground, approximately 15' wide by 28' long. Nice little community room and the bathrooms and laundry room were clean and well kept. Far enough from Interstate 10 and access road to make for no highway noise. Internet was slow and flaky, basically unusable. The sites were very close together and your only view was directly into the side of the RV sitting beside you. I expect to be packed in like a sardine in the middle of winter in South Florida, not in Tallahassee. Very nice woman in the office. I thought it was expensive for the amenities and lack of view / small site sizes. Price given is after Good Sam discount. This park is fine for an overnight stay but if in the area for longer I would probably stay elsewhere.

It is outright lying to call this a resort. Price paid were Passport America and I don't think it was even worth that. Manager who checked us in could not have been nicer, she was super helpful and friendly. The park is nearly filled with older RV's and year-round residents, some of whom are up pretty early warming up their trucks and leaving for work. Park was just OK for big rig access if you go slowly, follow the given directions, and watch for low hanging branches. Utilities worked fine, except for Internet which was unusably slow and flaky. I would have rated this park another point or so higher if it would have been quiet at night and I could have gotten a good night's sleep but there are train tracks running alongside this park and trains run regularly, even at night. They blow their horn on each pass by the park. The second train of the night was loaded so heavy it actually shook my large RV as it passed by and blew its horn waking me up for the second time that morning. This woke me up for the third time after the earlier train and the workers warming their trucks and leaving for work. I was awake the morning we stayed more than I was asleep. We would not stay again.

A well kept park that looks like it would be nice for families during the summer season; nice playground, swimming pool, bounce pillow, etc. Stayed in the fall as an overnight stop and was disappointing with value received for the price we paid. The price we paid reflects a 50 amp electric / water only hookups; the price for a site including sewer is even more! Pool was closed, game room was locked, and bounce pillow was put away. Our pull through site was unlevel front to back, and very short (they asked me when reserving and arriving about the length of my RV), had to back the truck up with tailgate down under front of fifth wheel to keep from sticking out into roadway in front. I was parked just off the roadway in the back and worried every time a vehicle passed that they might clip the rear of our RV. Very narrow country lane getting to the park, and the entrance is on a BAD turn with zero visibility; make sure you are using the hanging mirror to keep from colliding with oncoming traffic, although to their benefit there appears to be little traffic. Altogether a very pricey overnight stay. We would not stay again and would look for something more reasonably priced next time we were in or passing through the area.

Adequate for an overnight stop, mostly a park for seasonals with about 20 +/- transient pull through sites in front of park. Utilities worked well and no tress to block satellite reception. Nice playgrounds in this park and everything seems to be well kept. Camp store is better than most, never looked at bath houses or laundry. When calling for a reservation they tried to book me into a lake front site but I instead requested a pull through in front; after walking the park in the evening it was apparent I would have never fit my larger RV into any of the short lakefront sites. No pool, but there is a beach / swimming area at the lake, but it's quite a walk from the transient area. Not sure I understand why there was only about five RV's staying in the transient area, yet we had a neighbor directly beside us; not sure why we weren't spread out a bit more. Nearby rental cabin had a big dog tied on a short leash to the front porch who barked at everything. Most other dogs in the park ran free and I was particularly unimpressed with the dog $&*+ that was left on my site and adjacent playground areas. Gross. I was going to complain but then I saw that one of the dogs running loose was the owner's (or at least whoever lives on the only house on the campground property). Pet friendly is one thing, allowing dogs to run loose off leash in the park and owner's not cleaning up after them is another. Next time in the area I will look for a park I don't have to deal with the dog issues. If you like barking dogs and stepping in dog $&*+ this is the place for you.

Used this park as a stopover for one night. Shortly after arriving and setting up my wife asked why we weren't staying longer; this is a nice park with very nice owners whose hard work and improvements to this park is obvious. Very nicely landscaped throughout and all aspects of the park are new or very well cared for and kept. This park well deserves the good ratings it gets. Downsides were very few for us (1) no cable and no chance of getting satellite reception, and (2) pull through were very close together but with only a few campers staying they spaced us apart so it was never an issue. If pull through beside us was occupied we probably could not have put out our awning. Easy access from the highway and maneuvering in and out of the park was easy in our larger RV. Quiet at night. Utilities all worked well. Overall a great experience. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

I have been excited about staying at this park since we got our RV. Everyone speaks so well of the park and it gets rated so high I was excited when our travels finally brought us to the area. Although it was overall a nice experience, several factors left me disappointed. Getting to the RV park was easy IF you follow the directions on their website! If not, you can find yourself in some dicey neighborhoods in West Memphis; don't trust your GPS system! Maneuvering in the park was easy in our larger size RV. Utilities all functioned well and the bathhouses and laundry building, although dated (OK, old and not very nice) were kept reasonably clean. The laundry building contained a half dozen brand new washer and dryers (fancy and expensive high-end units) that are available for patrons to use for free! I suspect the buildings are regularly victimized by regular Mississippi River floods. Super nice office staff checked us in and escorted us to our site. Although the River was at record low levels (lowest level in more than 50 years according to some barge captains) it was enjoyable watching the barges passing by...for a while. After several barges passed by one looked like another and I didn't find it particularly interesting. Grounds were kept nice and there are walking paths around the park. Overall there is a rather dumpy feel to the park (again, not the owner's fault, but a result of semi-regular flooding) and it was difficult getting a good nights sleep due to nearby trains and jets / a flight path that must run right over the park, several loud planes flew overhead very early every morning. There was also a rather odd smell in the air throughout the park, and everywhere in the West Memphis area during our stay. Satellite reception was not a problem and the fifth wheel sites at the River allowed for a nice view of the Mississippi out the rear window. We would stay here again if in the area, but not a park I would go out of my way to stay at.

This is, without a doubt, the nicest place to stay in the Dallas area, if not the state of Texas. In most ways this was the nicest park we have stayed at to date. It wasn't cheap, but this is a classic example of getting what you pay for. Our rate reflects Good Sam rate for a Gold site overlooking the bay. Beautiful site, super nice deck, concrete patio and picnic table, regular schedule of activities, close to Dallas metro area. No way to avoid Dallas highway traffic to get here. Once at the park, it is truly an oasis, albeit one in which you can here the air traffic regularly throughout the day. Great paved drives with level concrete sites. Utilities worked well and satellite access would be good from majority of sites. Park has a small beach, kayak rentals, golf cart rentals, a small but nice camp store, and a mulch walking trail. This is an excellent park that we would gladly stay at again. This park would be great as an overnight stay, for a stay while visiting the area, or as a destination in and of itself.

This is an excellent park, a COE park that left us impressed in just about every way. Great price, nicely maintained, well designed, and easy access to and in the park with our larger RV. The only negatives, and they are pretty trivial and we knew ahead of time about them, was that there was no sewer and no pool or beach area for swimming. Roads are asphalt with level concrete sites and with nice patios and picnic tables. Staff was friendly and utilities worked well. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. Very quiet at night, slept very well. A fair number of sites will allow satellite signal. Great for an overnight or longer stay, one of the nicest parks we have stayed at, we would look forward to staying here again.

The excitement I had about staying at this COE park quickly evaporated once we arrived. Stayed overnight just two days after labor day holiday. Grass hadn't been mowed anywhere in the park for a long time, at least 2 weeks or more. Grass to my knees in the sites, common areas, playground, and beach made the park look very unkept. Lots of shade in most all of the sites, no chance for satellite unless you have a select site and portable dish. Pull through site was VERY narrow, had to adjust parking position to fit a tree between our two off door slide-outs. Rained overnight during our stay and site was a muddy mess in the morning. 30 Amp electric only in our site and water pressure was lower than most, but adequate. Access to and in the park was pretty good for our larger RV, aside from the narrow pull through site. Back-in sites look easy to negotiate and most are at a good angle, looked plenty long enough, and those with water front view looked to be reasonably nice. This park is OK given the cheap price if you like camping in the woods or fishing and can live without the amenities / hookups, but the park is not at all up to the standards we have encountered at other COE parks. We would stay elsewhere next time.

This was a hard park to rate. The newer section of the park physically is very nice, but every time I turned around something else was annoying me about this park. The bad: it certainly was not cheap to stay here, not sure what criteria they are using to call this a resort. The grass had not been mowed for quite a while in our section; insisted we wear wrist-bands if going to the pool (are you serious?); and at the pool it was obvious most present were not staying at the park or wearing wrist-bands. July must be off season here. There were not more than 30 RV's in the park, and the office assigns us a site in a full row with neighbors next to us. Would have much prefered having some space available to us. Not sure why they felt the need to pack us into a full loop given the emptiness of the park. It appears most present were weekend campers from the surrounding area rather than travellers, which made for a lot more outside radios than normal in resort type parks. The good: Nice level sites with concrete pads. A decent selection of cable channels available. Full hook-ups / utilities worked well. Access to and in the park was very good for our larger RV in the newer section, but would NOT have been so in the older / shadier section. Aside from the pool being filled with non-campers, (lots of cars in the parking lot with Georgia plates who came and went from the park's entrance, not back and forth to RV's), the pool was very nice, with a separate pool for kiddies with a rain / shower play area. If visiting the area we would probably stay here again, but this certainly is not a destination park we would go out of our way to stay at.

A nice RV park locate just off the interstate, but far enough that there is no highway noise. The owners do a nice job of keeping this park attractive and well kept. Shaded and cool, doubtful that any of the sites would allow for satellite TV, but they have a decent selection of cable channels available. Full hook-ups / utilities worked well. Access to and in the park was pretty good for our larger RV, they reserved a pull through site for us and blocked off a site on the other end prior to our arrival to allow easy access, and had someone escort us to our site, explained all hook-ups, and provide any needed help with setting up: a nice touch. Super nice owner in the office provided us with a nice bag with our receipt, snacks, a few pieces of candy after we finished our check-in. This park was nice but was pricey for the amenities provided (no pool). Walked to the nearby KOA and if in this area I would clearly stay at Rocky Top again rather than the KOA which looked run down and half occupied by seasonals with older units. This park is targeted to adult travellers without children (tiny playground / swingset). Very nicely kept rec room at office building. We used this park as an overnight stop and would be comfortable doing so again, but for the price paid we would be pretty tempted to consider someplace cheaper along the way. I may have rated the park another point higher had I not encountered an off leash dog that enjoyed jumping up at me while I walked the perimeter of the park in the evening. Pet friendly is one thing, allowing dogs to run loose off leash in the park is another.

I suspect most people leaving high scored reviews for the fairgrounds are factoring in the good time they had at a rally or some other get together at the fairground property rather than just the amenities offered and park itself. I stayed here for an overnight because it was recommended and close by the shop making some repairs to my RV and I found the fairground to be merely adequate for an overnight stay. The office staff was very friendly but advised me there were no full hookup (with 50 amp electric) sites available for the night of my stay. I agreed to the 30 amp electric with water only site without realizing it was in a small, grass, far from level, hillside lot (similar to an overflow parking area) that was VERY soft and muddy from recent rains. Moved several times before I could get a site that allowed me to get close to level. A walk around the fairground later (and on the way out the next morning) reveled that at least two thirds of the sites were empty / open for the night. Gee, I would have much preferred one of the 50 amp full hookup sites which are all level, gravel, and fronting paved roads instead. Also, be aware that there are very active train tracks at the rear of the fairgrounds. If your site is in the back row you will be right beside the train tracks. And the engineers aren't bashful about blowing their horns night and day. The fairground was easy to get to and negotiate the interior roads even with our larger RV. Bathrooms and showers, although older, are well maintained and clean. No pool, plenty of space (indoor and outdoor) for rallies or RV get togethers, wifi so weak and slow it was unusable. I would not stay here again in a 30 amp electric / water site. I would stay here in a full hookup (50 amp electric) site, and probably rate the fairground another point higher, if I could be assured of not being in the back of the fairground near the railroad.

This park is just barely accessible for big rigs. Very steep gravel driveway / road leading to upper sites with big ruts beside drive from recent rains made it difficult to negotiate turns. Lower level sites a combination of sparse gravel and mostly mud, close together, difficult to back into, no landscaping other than patches of grass and more dirt / mud, and under old trees that would worry me ref: falling limbs and debris. Gravel pull through sites on the upper level were far from level, required several leveling blocks on one side of RV. Seasonal units in park didn't look very well kept. Office staff was unenthusiastic and indifferent. Bathrooms were old, dirty, and disgusting, no way I would use them. Bath house looked newer and was just OK in condition and cleanliness. The park was nearly empty when we stayed so the views of the upper field and mountains were very pretty, that's the only nice thing I can say about this park. Rate reflects weekly stays. We would not stay here again (or at the other campground nearby on 105 which looked worse).

This is one of our favorite parks. It is a beautiful setting and reasonably priced. Our site backed up to the lake - beautiful views from our RV windows. Separate loops for pets and non-pet campers. Easy access in the park with our large RV, but the other review about traveling to the park from the north and the bridge was exactly right. We bottomed out on the bridge and were worried about the possibility of serious damage. Use the other entrance. We would certainly stay here again.

Choices in this area are few and far between. This is a very nicely kept RV park run by a very friendly couple who have obviously put a lot of work into making this park the gem that it is. Utilities worked well and access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. Bathrooms, showers, and laundry rooms were spotless and looked new. Good Wi-Fi internet service. There is no swimming pool but the lake has a beach, with platform in the center, and looks like a lot of fun for kids (or adults who may be kids at heart!) to swim in. It is close to the highway if your space is in the back of the park, but we were in front part and noticed very little highway noise. We will certainly stay here again.

A very nicely kept RV park run by a very friendly younger couple who are making steady progress in upgrading and improving the park. Utilities worked well, not much chance at satellite service but their cable selection was pretty good. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV (follow directions to the park provided by campground). Bathrooms and showers very clean. Dead quiet at night, made it easy to get a good night's sleep. Very close to Monticello. Cell phone service is very weak, unreliable, and worked only occasionally in this park for both Verizon and AT&T. Campground's WiFi is strange, no password required but you have to manually log on via a campground web page prior to using and then it kicks you off after an hour or two and you have to go through the process again, makes for not very enjoyable usage and nearly impossible for use with a smartphone. For a few days we would stay here again. If we were staying for more than a few days we would look elsewhere where we could get satellite, cell, and better internet service.

This campground is really a handful of sites in the owner's back yard. Very nice owners and the Passport America rate was a cheap price for an overnight stop. There was an extra $2 charge for less than stellar Wi-Fi and the sand gnats were terrible. The gnats were so bad by the time I was done connecting utilities I couldn't stand the bugs anymore, swarming my eyes and biting my legs. Couldn't stand to be outside during our stay. We would not stay here again.

This is a great park and a spectacular value! Beautiful setting, gated and secure, and reasonably priced. Not 10 minutes to Universal Studios! Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. Staff was friendly and we enjoyed walking around the park's nature trails and the lake. One of our favorite parks. Clean and attractive sites and park grounds. We would definitely return.

One of our favorite parks that we have stayed at. This is a great park and a spectacular value! Beautiful setting, gated and secure, sites are one block from the ocean, and reasonably priced. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV, although we worried if we we were headed to the right place as some of the surrounding neighborhood is not the greatest. Staff was friendly and we enjoyed walking around the park's nature trails, lake, and of course to the ocean. Lots of mountain biking trails in the park. Clean and attractive sites and park grounds. Not only would we definitely return, we cant wait to return here!

A super clean and very nicely landscaped RV park with nice amenities. Lots of beautiful flowers. Friendly owners who treated us more like guests than customers and utilities all worked well. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV if you listen to the park owners directions ref: getting to the park. Park faculties (paved roads, pool, etc) were all in very good condition. Super clean restrooms. Reasonably sized and nicely landscaped sites. Only downside: its a bit of a drive to most Smokey Mountain attractions and the most popular National Park areas, but we expected that in order to be away from the crowds and noise at the end of the day. We would definitely stay here again.

A decent RV park with a low weekly rate. Roads and sites are gravel and all are level and with patios and picnic tables. Staff was friendly and utilities worked well. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. There was some road noise (big trucks slowing / engine braking to enter the highway) and regardless of what the staff says unless you are in one of the front pull through sites near the office you will not get satellite signal. If we could reserve one of the front pull through sites we would stay again; if not, we would stay elsewhere.

After looking at all of the others this is the only campground we would consider staying at near Cedar Key. A very nicely kept RV park with nice amenities. Friendly staff , utilities worked well, and we had a clear view for satellite and the weekly rate was cheap. Access to and in the park was super easy for our larger RV. Park faculties (roads, pool, etc) were all in like new condition. Beautiful, large, and nicely landscaped sites. Very few seasonal units and the few that are here are immaculately kept. We walked and drove through the other RV parks near Cedar Key and they are all cramped with small sites and a drab and dumpy feel. In my opinion, this is the only decent place to stay near Cedar Key. Dead quiet at night, I have rarely slept as good in a campground. Nicely kept, a cheap price, what more could you want? Only downside: its a 30 minute drive for groceries / Walmart, but that was a very minor nuisance for us. We would definitely stay here again.

Disney magic and everything about the campground (roads, pools, bath houses) are in like new condition. Lots of Disney style activities at the park (nightly movies, campfire sing-along, etc) and the swimming pools are awesome. If you are staying here you know its not gonna be cheap but its a great Disney experience and by staying onsite at Disney you get to enjoy the extra magic hours at the various parks. Only two issues diminished the Disney magic during our stay; (1) all campground sites are back-in sites. If you are traveling in a larger RV do not book the standard site. I could have never gotten into our site without the help of a very experienced neighbor who took 20 minutes to help guide me into our site. Once in the site it was adequate in size and very nicely landscaped, but when we visit again we will pay the extra for the premium site. Also, (2) we were placed in a pet loop and I have no idea why. We do not have pets, and generally have no problems with other pets, but our neighbors during this stay had 2 dogs and set up a portable fence right up to the side of our RV site. Their dogs barked at the sun, barked at the moon, barked at people walking by, barked at cars driving by, barked at golf carts passing by, barked at the wild turkeys in the campground, they barked, and barked, and barked. Miserable coming back late from extra magic hours at the parks and being woken at the crack of dawn by the barking. We would definitely stay here again, but in a premium site in a non-pet loop. NOTE: I guesstimated the nightly price of our stay using the rate sheet at the campground concierge desk. Our stay was inclusive of the campground, park passes, and meal plan, so I don't know exactly what our specific breakdown was.

A nice RV park locate beside their own private nature preserve. Park has decent amenities in good condition. Utilities worked well. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. Park has a lot of Ontario snowbirds during the winter who were friendly and pleasant. Nature trails around the park in the private nature preserve were nice for walking, biking, and even suitable for golf carts if you travel with one. Rail trail in front of the park that is a short bike ride / walk to a gorgeous nature preserver (Circle Bar B and Hancock Lake). We were in a pull through site in the "sunset" area of the park under a tree that left our RV, grill, and chairs covered daily with a heavy coat of greenish / yellow pollen. it took some work after our stay to remove the green stains from everything. Also, didn't appreciate people knocking on our door Sundays trying to solicit us for money; once asking for breast cancer fund donations and second time for campground employee retirement party. This park was nice but pricey, there are no discounts anything, and they are VERY clear that there are no refunds for any stay for any reason. We would stay here again but far away from any trees next time.

A very nice RV park on the river and with nice amenities. Friendly staff helped us to our site, utilities worked well, and we had a clear view for satellite. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. Park was FULL during our 2 week stay, our site was small and very close to our neighbors, as we expected for south Florida during the winter. The snowbird residents were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. Nice park sponsored events on a regular basis (pot-lucks, dances, golf outings, etc) and the park faculties (roads, pool, etc) were all in like new condition. There is a pretty river that runs beside the park and we were lucky to see dolphins in the evening as the tide was going out. The downside to this park, and it is a BIG downside, is the railroad that runs very close to the front of the park. And the engineers blow the train horn several times during every pass, night and day, and it is LOUD. During our 2 week stay I never got used to the train horn, it woke me up every night several times. If it weren't for the trains, this would be a perfect park. As it is, I don't know if we would stay again just because I didn't get one full nights sleep during our entire stay.

Nothing exceptional about this campground, but full hookups and a decent quiet night's stay for a very good price (Passport America) close to St. Augustine attractions. Access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. Office staff was friendly. Everything about this campground was OK, not great, just OK, and for the price we paid that was good for us. We would return to overnight or stay a few days and see the St. Augustine sights.

Full hookups and a cheap Passport America rate (cash or check only) made this a good choice for seeing Savanna area and the Wildlife Refuge. Sites are acceptable and access to and in the park was easy for our larger RV. We were in a pull through in the front part of the park near the office so there was some road noise and during our stay and the gnats and mosquito's must have been in season because they were terrible, even getting into our RV. Our stay was less than enjoyable due to the neighbor with the barking German Sheppard tied to a tree all day while they were gone; I don't know why campground management allowed this.

Stayed here in winter because it was the only campground in the area with utilities that was open. We arrived late to find we had our choice of 2 terribly unlevel sites with hookups at the wrong end of the site. Literally had to park our RV and truck forward in the roadway (never unhooked) out of the front part of the site in order to make the electric connection with our 30' electric cable. It was raining and sites were very muddy. Overall a relatively poor experience. We would not stay again.

A decent park that provides a good value for the price. Friendly hosts helped us to our site and the front row pull throughs were great for easy access, utilities worked well, and we had a clear view for satellite. Membership type park with friendly residents but the pool looked like it needed some maintenance; usable, just a some cosmetic issues. Great place for an overnight or longer term stay. We will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this park several times on our way to and from Florida and have had good experiences until this last stay. We decided to stay for a week and were prepared to pay the website listed weekly rate and were promptly told the website was wrong, prices are now $33.50 a night not the $30 that was advertised. Staying a week we did get one night free but the bait-and-switch tactics left me with a bad taste in my mouth. The park has easy access for travelers, utilities work well (except for cable, which was snowy during the entire week), and the grounds are decent. At $33.50 I think Mayberry is overpriced for the amenities, or lack thereof, that they offer. No pool, no community room, etc. I don't know if we would stay again, only because there aren't many other options in the area.
