Great park for an overnight stop over. Easy on and off I-65. We got a back-in site which backed up to the small lake which was pretty. The back in sites are a little short and narrow. I couldn't back up as much as I needed because my slide would hit the electrical pedestal which positioned my steps off the small concrete patio. Should have gotten a pull thru site, they seemed a little wider and much longer. Entire park is gravel and our site had some new gravel which was very soft. The restroom, shower, laundry and kitchen/lounge areas were very clean and inviting. The managers were very nice and helpful. We dropped off a propane tank at the propane area and they filled it quickly and delivered it to our site. If the area was paved and had concrete sites this KOA would rate higher.

We have been going to Topsail two times a year for the past 4 years. We really enjoy Topsail and have met many friends there that go the same time each year. I will have to say that I am giving this visit less than an excellent rating. Over the four years we have continued to see the maintenance of this park go down. There are many concrete pads that are so broken up an uneven that they are close to being unusable. They seem to repair only one per year. Looks like it was site 152 that had been repaired since we were there in September. In our two week stay there was an electrical problem on six sites in the front section which they had to close down. After about a week they started to work on it. After almost 20 inches of rain the already broken up asphalt on Weeping Willow was almost destroyed. They put some gravel on it to keep the mud covered. Be careful riding your bike down it. It is sad that this being one of the #1 parks in Florida that should be paying for itself but it continues to lack the TLC that it deserves. We will come back again in the fall only if we can get a site that is usable. I never thought I would have to be this critical about Topsail but it is what it is.

We have stayed at Birmingham South several times as an overnight stop for one night. Good location for restaurants, fuel, etc. The restrooms and shower facilities are the cleanest you will ever see in a commercial RV park. The Wi-Fi works very well. There are several full time residents here. The cable television hasn't worked the last three times we stopped here. Several of the sites are not level. The asphalt is breaking up a lot on many sites and the concrete walk in front of each site is also in bad shape on many of the sites. For $42.00 per night for 50AMP is a little more than I want to pay until they work on the cable and sites. Will probably stay a little further down the road for a lot less.

This is an excellent park for a short stay. Great if you like to fish. Very quite, clean, beautiful setting with Spanish moss covered trees. Large fenced off area for your pets. Friendly staff. Only downside there aren't many restaurants in Freeport. If you like to eat out, you can cross the bridge go 16 miles to the Santa Rosa area. Great place for a couple of days of relaxation. Sites are well spaced, level, good Wi-Fi, cable.

Stayed here overnight after picking up a new 5th wheel. This is a very clean park. Several pull through sites which makes it very easy for an overnight stay. Close to restaurants at the next exit up on I-65. Great place for two or three days while seeing all the sites in Louisville or the surrounding area.

This is a large campground with 260 sites situated in large oval patterns. It is made up of two large loops each with a smaller loop inside; many of the sites have some shade at least some of the day and all are about the same size. Many of the trees are Maple with pine trees scattered throughout and the color this time of year is awesome. There is adequate space between the sites, more than most of the campgrounds I have been in. The pads are paved, but not very wide and you almost have to park a second vehicle in the grass with bigger rigs. The sites are not at an angle, so it can be somewhat of a challenge to back in with a larger rig, 35ft. or more. Some even pulled forward into the site, unhooked and drove around the grass to park. First I had seen this at a park. We even saw where one trailer had set up in the grass alongside and used the paved site for their mat and picnic table. The paved pad is so narrow that when you extend your steps they hang over onto the grass (or dirt because the grass has been worn off because that is the only place to sit your chairs or picnic table). It made the distance from our bottom step to the ground 16 inches. Even with my portable step, it was still too high. This would be the only reason I could not give this park an excellent rating. Water and 30/50 AMP electric but no sewer hook-ups. There are two nice dump stations. Be sure to have a water pressure regulator. The pressure was strong. Lot of locals camping here and many would have golf carts with them. I don’t mind the quiet electric carts but the gasoline carts were somewhat annoying at times. The Wi-Fi was intermittent and very slow most of the time. There are areas where there are electrical but no water. There are a couple of very large areas that is primitive camping with no utilities.

This is our first trip to the Carrabelle area and really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere without all the high rise condos lining the beaches. This is a great RV park with concrete slabs, picnic tables, and very nice landscaping. Great pool, good Wi-Fi signal, but you can pay extra for a faster connection. Fish cleaning station, fenced dog-run area. We had a pull-through site on the west side of the park and the slabs were a little short as we had to angle our truck in front of our fifth-wheel in order to get it out of the road. Also, the turns between the rows of sites on the west side are a little tight for the larger motor homes pulling a tow. The road around the sites on the east side of the park are much more big rig friendly. The back-in sites on the west side of the park seemed to be a little longer and we will request a back-in next trip. Just a short walk across the road to the beach which is dog friendly. The ladies at the check-in were very friendly and helpful, offering suggestions for area attractions and restaurants. Good shrimp and oysters at Captain Snook's in East Point, about 12 miles back to the West. Will definitely return to this park. Rate reflects Good Sam discount.

First time to stay in this park. This is a huge campground with all types of sites, back-in, pull through, that spans through approximately two miles from the registration area to the end. Two tier pricing for weekday and weekend stays. Large pool, camp store, boat rental, nature center, a lot of things to do in this park. Just a short drive or bike ride over to the beach or to the fishing pier. Only downside is the lack of shade due to hurricanes and fires in the past few years. Restrooms are very clean, look "like new". The Wi-Fi is very spotty. There are Wi-Fi repeaters about every 1,000 feet and we were half way between two, the signal was good most of the time but the speeds were very slow most of the time. Will definitely stay here again.

Very nice park for an overnight stay just 3 miles from the I-65. Several level pull through sites with most sites full hook up. Attendant will take you to your site in his golf cart. Cash only, no credit cards taken.Good Sam park. Nice walking trail around the small lake. Would definitely stay here again.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount with 50 AMP service. We found that Spring Lake RV Resort was perfect for a two-night stop over. We wish we could have stayed longer and will return for a longer stay. An adult RV resort, it was very quite, much more than the state parks and COE parks we came in. The couple managing the resort was very friendly and helpful, they even escorted us to our campsite and assisted us in backing in and getting hooked up. Sites are full hook-up with great Wi-Fi, cable television, concrete patio with a swing, table, and grill. The bathhouse was clean, had a laundry facility and all the grounds were well kept. Most all the sites circled around a large lake that had a beautiful fountain in the middle and a small island. The fishing was catch and release. The roads and sites were gravel but it appeared the gravel had been rolled down and compacted so riding a bike was no problem and no dust. Most sites were back in, but there were a few pull-through sites up near the entrance. Only a few miles from I-40, close to Crossville and Fairfield Glade. There were two club houses for group or rally meetings. We will definitely be back for a longer stay.

Nice campground for overnight stay while traveling through Chattanooga or a couple of days while seeing the local sites. We stayed here two nights while visiting friends in the area. Campground host was very nice, offering information on some of the local things to see while in the area. The bathhouse and restroom facilities were very clean and had that new look. Wi-Fi was good but would keep dropping signal often. Sites had cable TV and full hook ups. Unfortunately the two nights we were here it rained both days. The gravel roads through the campground and sites needed more gravel and water would stand in pools. The drainage was poor and it looked like small ponds all over the place. Waded in ankle deep water to get from our camper to the truck. Many of the sites were a little close together. Glad the camper next to me didn’t want to use his fire pit that was three feet from my living room slide. Sites a little to close for me.

Have camped at many COE campgrounds in the middle Tennessee area. Defeated Creek Park is one of the nicest. Many of the sites are full hook-up. Bathrooms and grounds are very well maintained.

This is our second time to camp at Topsail. Very clean and quiet. RV sites have adequate space for big rigs with full to partial shade on most sites. Lots of paved walking and biking tails. Wi-Fi available at the camp store and will now reach to the first couple of rows of sites toward the front of the park. Have already made reservations for October.
