We arrived here in the early evening after a day visit at Scottsbluff National Monument Park. This is a very nice RV Park as most go. It is very clean and nicely taken care of. Large grassy mowed lots with a great view of the nearby bluffs.
We stayed here on your recent travels around Nebraska and found this park to be very outdated and to actually be below average especially for what they charge. The sites all seemed to dirt with very little gravel base making for a mess in the Nebraska rain. The showers and restrooms were in need of a lot of attention and updating. The only thing going for this park is that it is located next to Pioneer Village and the fact that you do get one free adult admission for staying in the park. I would have a difficult time staying here again.
We stayed here while passing through and found the campground to be resonable for the fee. The campground was clean and the site seem reasonable level. Easy access and close to downtown, quite and peaceful for a true country feel. Nice place to stay in Nebraska's "Top Town".
We stayed here during our recent participation in BRAN 2010 and found this park to be very resonable as compared to many others. The hotel has a laundry area, hot tub and breakfast available to those staying in the camping area. Despite the recent rains, the campgrounds were not muddy except for the approach on the west side, but we were able to get in on the east side of the area. I would recommend this site even though it is about a mile out of Thedford.
We stayed in this campground for one night as we were passing through during BRAN 2010. I actually called ahead and made a reservation a couple months before so getting a spot was not a problem. The office personnel were friendly both times. The campground was okay but it could have used a little attention. My daughter and I had a good time in the pool but was disappointed that the hottub was not working. Overall the campground worked well for what we needed, and it was right on Hwy 2.
Grayton Beach State Park is definitely a Florida State Park gem in the Emerald Coast area. Conveniently located, it’s about halfway between Destin and Panama City Beach on the panhandle of Florida. The camping facilities there are less than a mile from the most pristine sand and water in Gulf. Because of the location this park is an RVers dream come true for those that love the beach. Our 3 night stay there in the end of September 2009 was terrific. Upon arrival at the park office to check-in, the Rangers/staff were very friendly and made us feel completely welcomed. Having reserved site 20 based on a recommendation I read on the internet our check-in was smooth and easy. The site was located in the older loop of the park and was very nice but I would say most nearly all the sites are as equally as nice with lots of trees and privacy. A negative on the site location is that the older loop of the park could use a little TLC. This is a heavily used park so the restrooms/showers are showing some age and wear. The interior road in the older loop is unpaved as well as the sites with the exception of the ADA pads. The newer loop is paved, sites are graveled and there they offer both 30amp and 50amp service. Now for my favorite part, the fun stuff in the area. The best part is the beach being so close and since it is a state park beach it was less crowded then the Destin and Panama City Beaches. There is a lot to do in the area from sunbathing on the beach to bike riding the local trails to kayaking on the lake. Just beware that there may be an alligator or two in the lake. I personally never saw one but it is posted. As an avid bike rider, I would like to add that the paved trails as well as the off road trails in the National Forest area are awesome here. If you come here to visit you should bring your bathing suit and beach stuff, your bike and a kayak (or rent them locally) and the desire to have a great time because at Grayton Beach State Park there is plenty of fun to be had.
St. George Island State Park is truly a place to go to get away from it all. Quiet, limited cell phone service and with little outside contact I really enjoyed my visit here. The camping facilities (restrooms, showers, camping sites, etc.) at the park are well maintained and area itself was is fairly secluded. Stayed in site 38, which was nice as it was close to one of two restroom/shower areas. However, I would say that nearly every site on the outer edge was equally nice. Even though it wasn't the height of the season the camping area was near full and the beach area had a lot of visitors. The beach was not crowded at all since the state park beach is near 9 miles in length from my understanding. Five miles of which is only reachable by foot or boat. This allows for some fairly private beach moments. The mosquitoes and flies could be bothersome but the proper insect repellent seemed to work to combat them most of the time. I also saw many ghost crabs along the beach and a couple of stingrays in the water. Regardless a great time can be had by all. Be sure to arrive with most of your supplies (as the nearest store is near 10 miles away), insect repellent and a good book and you will be assured a relaxing time at St. George Island State Park.
This park is really close to Dallas making it a quick place to go to get close to nature. Overall this is a very nice park. I enjoy a bike ride or a walk and you can do that here. A couple of the main roads are a little rough. Some spots in the area I was in you could see the lake but for the most part it seemed to be only wilderness. I'll be back again sometime.
Came to Wichita Falls for the Hotter'N Hell Hundred Race and stayed here for 2 nights. The office staff were very friendly and fast at getting me checked in. The park is 1.5 miles to the west of the event area so it was easy to enjoy the activities yet a quite getaway for a good nights rest. It is a clean park with a lots of trees and fairly nice common areas. I'm looking at staying here again next year.
