I was interested in the history of Pine Grove section, since the devastation is still visible in the surrounding area. The Park Service has done a very good job of re-designing and updating what was a more natural setting. But now it accommodates big rigs and has sewer hookups. The shower houses are clean, but although laundry hook-ups are there, there are no machines, at least in two I checked. Trees will grow. Even though there is no vegetation between sites, they are fairly far apart, so one doesn't feel cramped. We drove to the River campground, but glad we didn't try to get in there with our 33' motorhome. This is our second stay and I would return.

This park now has three circles for camping. Old Prairie, Big Flats, which probably have 30 amp, water, and probably no sewer. The new section which we have been awaiting is PALMETTO RIDGE CAMPGROUND which has water, 50 amp electric, and sewer at the site. Laundry at nice new shower houses is $1.50 for wash and $1.50 for dry. Showers are new, clean, well lighted and large. There is so much to do at this park, hiking, biking, boat tour of Myakka Lake, fishing. Also very close to Sarasota, 9 miles, for shopping, and a little further to one of Florida's finest beaches. We live about 80 miles away, so this will be a good weekend destination. Myakka River State Park will be a 10 when growth separates sites more completely and trees give more shade. We will be back.

Big rigs will be satisfied with sites 122-142 which are adequate, and far enough from the front that road noise is not a problem, although there were a few loud planes. Otherwise, the office staff was friendly and helpful. The laundry facility was large and well equipped. Showers were individual, clean and large, with plenty of hot water. Directions could be a little clearer. After exiting I-75, Mack Smith road is at first light, and turning left. We missed it the first time. We would stay here again.

This park will be a 10 when extensive revamping is finished. Many of the sites are not finished at this point, but we had a beautiful long concrete site with paved car park area and picnic table. Landscaping has been thoughtfully done. Utilities were well placed for big rigs. We would have been better in a shorter site, but that was our fault, since we came in on Sunday when office was closed. We had called ahead and were told to pick a pull-through site and come up Monday to check in. Facilities are luxurious, both in the "Welcome center" and the pool/shower/laundry/game and exercise area. Quiet, outside the amusement park atmosphere, and extraordinary mountain view, make this a find. I was surprised to find a neighboring rig received a "Passport" rate. We asked and were told no. Still it is a lovely park and the trees will grow.

This is a lovely small park, obviously the pride of the management. Wonderful landscaping. Some special touches, like some exercise equipment, a pool table, and a dog park. We were escorted to our site, which was stone covered and easy in and out. Utilities are well located and everything worked perfectly. The only reason we didn't give it a ten is that some people might be bothered by the trains, but we have stayed in parks where the sound was more intrusive. The park is a wonderful base for visiting Mammoth Caves. We would stay here again.

Price reflects AAA discount, which is usually not an option. This is an easy in/out park and is pleasant enough, but could use work on interior roads, and a good picking up. Nice shade. Laundry room looked okay, and next to office and activity room. No restaurant within walking distance so plan to eat in or unhook. Good overnight stop.

This is a good park for Passport price. The Passport connection is not advertised and was only by a casual comment that I was to get the discount. I am still waiting for the credit. The campground is split into three sections, monthly and creek side which have sewer available, and the rest which is a big treeless field on a lower level. Since we were staying several days and wanted sewer, we were assigned to a fairly narrow site with the monthly renters. Was like being in the middle of park models. I checked out the laundry and decided to wait a few days. There is also the issue of the steep entrance. I would like to try another park if I were to return to Rockford.

Nice park, great shade. Would have given it a 10 if it had been a little further off the interstate. Not a big problem when we are closed up. Wonderful location to park while visiting the Lincoln Presidential Museum and Library. Would certainly return.

Kids would be a little bored here, but those folks who enjoy a quiet, shady, laid back park would enjoy this campground. The laundry is spotless, and large commercial dryers shorten the time to finish this job. Nice lounge with pool table and fireplace. Galesburg has interesting historic district with several great eateries. Friendly staff guides to adequate sites. We would return.

This might be the primo state park in Florida for the atmosphere and unique amenities. The museum and carillon are a nice walk from the campground. There is a small area for handicraft demonstrations and artisans do some teaching. There is cultural value for all ages. Although there is no swimming pool, there is a nice playground adjacent to the campground. The sites are well separated and shaded by trees and vegetation. Unfortunately, the Suwanee River as been greatly affected by drought, so there is no kayaking or swimming in the river. This is our second stay and we love it. There is a nice buffet at the Telford Hotel, within walking distance outside the park.

Easy in/out from I-57 to this beautiful park. The owners bought this campground three years ago, added a new office, and have successfully turned a defunct campground into a wonderful stop. Sites are adequately separated and utilities are thoughtfully located. Trees are mature and completely shade all sites. Nice pool and "rally room". Site is complete with 1/2 dozen fresh brown eggs courtesy of a few free roaming chickens, some tomatoes, and peppers. We would enjoy staying here again.

Easy in/out from I-65. Park is nicely designed around office and pool area. Very clean facilities and friendly greeting. A little concerned about the huge junk yard across the street, but noise and view was blocked by beautiful trees. The other concern was the helicopters, but they were not an issue after dark. Our site #3 was far enough from the interstate that to be quiet. Would certainly stay here again.

This campground is easy to reach, but first reaction seems remote. This is great because Cullman RV is in a very quiet rural setting. The host said the campground was opened 26 years ago, and although clean, shows its age. The picture in Trailer Life doesn't show all the trees that provide shade. Not the "livestock". We saw horses, burros, geese. Very nice overnight with lots of restaurants nearby. We would stay here again.

Beautiful campground. Friendly and helpful host. I'm sure it is full in the summer! I might have given it a 10 if it wasn't so far out of Eufala. Showers are older but clean. Even had a washer and dryer. For an overnight White Oak Creek might be more advantageous. Beautiful beach. Great place to canoe or kayak. I can see spending more time here.

This campground has just been significantly improved. A wide drive in, new showers, sewer hookups. It does however lack key elements for RVer's. Sites are narrow and sewer connection at the site is practically in the next site's front door. Avoid sites 32 and 33 which are only one car wide at the front. Sites are marked with large pieces of coral, some 3 ft high and four ft wide, which restrict maneuvering. Big rigs should look carefully at sites 34 and up, which are wider. The park itself offers so much in recreation and education about the reefs. Fishing snorkeling, glass bottom boats are within easy walking distance. Outside the park there are lots of restaurants and services. Inside the park we were unable to get any TV stations on the antenna, although phone and computer were satisfactory. We will try another park next time.

I understand the popularity of this park. Sites are well separated with lots of trees. Our site was tight for us at 36ft, so it took some maneuvering. It was acceptably close to the showers, which were older but adequate and clean. The beach is wonderful, clean with lifeguards most of the day. Only lack of sewer brings down the rating, but they do have three dumps. They could have a better plan for a holiday weekend, but everything was fine by Tuesday night. There is so much to do in St. Augustine, and so many restaurants we were glad to find a good mom and pop "Seafood Kitchen" off the beaten path. Will certainly return.

$11 per night reflects Golden Age Pass price. Most spots are great, all are on the lake. Two shower-houses are adequate and clean, not fancy. Nice walking and wonderful canoeing, kayaking. We could pull our kayaks up on the bank, and secure them for use another day. Boat ramp also nice. We were here before the summer season, and the campground was pretty full, but that didn't bother the plentiful birds including cardinals, robins, bluebirds, wood thrushes, wrens, and a family of geese. We would love to return.

Arriving at 2:30, there was no one to check us in or recommend site, and park was really full, apparently lots of permanent residents, but no park models. Sign said to drive around and pick a site, excepting certain sites. Laundry is 2$ for each load of wash and 2$ for each load of dryer, which is a little high. Fair amount of shade. Rocky surface of sites, some are not level. We have stayed once before and will probably stay again.

The rate we paid reflects Florida resident senior, which is 1/2 price. Sites are well shaded and separated by vegetation. Lots of squirrels, but they are not aggressive. On our walk we saw deer and other wildlife. There are plenty of trails for hikers and a boat ramp for kayaks or canoes. Pleasant for Florida summer.

This is the best park in this area if you are self contained. Staff was friendly, and we were led to our site. There is a little "grill" but we did not try it. Internet worked great on our card, and TV was OK on antenna, even under all the trees. The showers and laundry are adequate but unappealing. But in Flagstaff to barely hear the trains is a big plus. And we weren't washed away in the monsoon rains.

Although this is not a fancy park, and certainly located in an industrial area, it is easy to access from I-40. The big attraction was shade in addition to water, electric, and sewer. Good reception on TV antenna and internet wireless connection. Good for a one night stay.

Our second visit was somewhat different. Check-in is in the logical location, just inside the gates instead of halfway around the park. A new work camper was being trained, so check in was very slow. They seem to be confused about what they are offering. Passport cards are not honored even though they are still listed as participants. I was asked to fill out a VIP form, and was given a $5 dollar deduction on the site. Offerings at the restaurant are also in the check-in building and 20% deduction for VIP cardholders. The larger building is sometimes open, though virtually empty. Pools are still open, laundry and shower rooms are still clean, though not quite as luxurious feeling as before. The price is still great for the facility, just wonder what has caused things to change. The trees are a little bigger, and I would still return.

One of the nicest parks we have stayed in. Clean and neat, and the work campers really care. The cable TV was snowy on some channels. Shade was adequate and very appreciated. In addition to everything else, they have a free continental breakfast, and popcorn in the afternoon. I would certainly return.

This family run park is not fancy, but very clean and has shade at each site. Shower/ restrooms were clean. Certainly good for the price, and I would return.

Since I had made no reservations I was happy to get a pull through in the "overflow" across the road from the main Ruby's. It is also used for employees and work campers. It was a very short walk across the highway to the shuttle pick up. The site was not very level and there were no trees. Must be self-contained. Beautiful sunsets and could see rodeo from the drive.

Lovely new park, just a few minutes from Temple Square. Pull through sites were well arranged, although just a bit tight. Has friendly staff. Would return if in the area.

This mom and pop RV park is about halfway between Yellowstone and Salt Lake City. Some sites have shade, but most trees are new. Owners are friendly and helpful. I object a little to pay showers, $.25 for 6 minutes so didn't use them. $26.24 included Good Sam discount. The location right on highway 89 is easy, and surprisingly quiet since the highway speed limit is 35 mph. I would return here.

Some sites in this park have a fantastic view of the Grand Tetons. This was once a KOA park, 15 or more years ago. The workers in the park are really trying, but it has been so filthy and rundown, it is too much of an uphill battle. If you are satisfied spending more than $55 per night to have electric, water, and sewer you might be satisfied. All of the previous reviews are absolutely correct. We like to be flexible, and would not have stayed here if there had been anything else available in the area between Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.

We ended up here for the 4th of July, and all the COE parks along the Mississippi were full. We were happy to get a site, but would not stay here again. The back-in site we had was less than 100 feet from the railroad, and because it was right by a crossing, the noise from the horn was really loud. I resorted to ear plugs. The COE parks on the river have 1 water faucet for 4-6 sites, and no hookup is allowed. We were precaution-ed to have full water tanks. Sites are nice and shady and the river view is stupendous, but I would try for Fairport or Shady Creek, COE parks with 10 miles to see if they are better.

All pull thru sites are unshaded. Showers and laundry are clean. The owners were working on the miniature golf course and although friendly we didn't want to interrupt. Families might enjoy a few days in this campground, but it was fine for overnight too. Close enough to day trip to Hannibal. I would stay here again.

We were on the west end of a row with small tree. Sites are level and terraced. Shade from the next rig would have been nice. The park has special discount tickets available to some shows and all the information to help make a decision. We had friends to chauffeur us around, which was necessary since traffic is heavy and parking is tight. Shower houses are well placed. Walking is aerobic, going up and down hill. I would stay here again.

The first impression getting into this park was discouraging. I am glad we were not. There are three sections to this park. Because of the heat, we chose shade over riverside. One section has both shade and view. The owners have planned for the frequent spring flooding. New combo "bathrooms" have upgraded fixtures and are on ground level. Laundry rooms are on the second floor and would be difficult for some to climb. Appliances are the latest but took some time to figure out. It is easy to see how much the owners care and I would stay here again.

We stayed at Linder Point, with a shady, level, paved site. On walks we noticed that only the first eight sites had full hookups. Other sites had water & electric only, or dry. Our site was a generous 50 feet. Reservations would be a must, especially for football season. We felt very fortunate to find a 2 night opening.

Although not fancy, this is a nice, friendly, shady, clean park. We enjoyed the Passport rate, and I have paid much more for a site that wasn't half as nice. I would certainly return. There is a wonderful Chinese restaurant across the street too!

This park has a wonderful location for sightseeing Crazy Horse monument, Mt. Rushmore, and Custer State Park, Wildlife Loop. It is certainly possible to do all three attractions in one day. Staff was friendly and helpful. However, it is way too crowded. We were near the pool and playground, and had children going through our site from 7am til 10pm. Many of the sites are grass which was a difficulty since they had torrents of rain the day we arrived. The sites are so close together that we had to park our tag-a-long almost in a fire pit. This would not be my first choice for return.

We ended up here just before July 4th, and were finding other parks full. The people in the office were friendly and helpful. We had a guide to our site and wonder if the site across from us has ever been "observed". We closed our curtains to elimnate the "dump" directly in front of us. I would not use the restrooms. I do not think Good Sam or Woodall's has looked at this park in a long time. I would not recommend this park or stay in it again.

This park is pretty rough yet, but the crucial facilities are available here and the people are really nice and working hard. Laundry room, shower and bathrooms are all in several little buildings, family style. They allow free use of DVD's, VHS tapes, and games as well as book exchange. Although the entrance could be improved, and it had just received torrential rain, it was a great overnight stay for us in an area which is underserved.

My husband had a different park in mind, but when I saw all the reviews I changed it. Large sites with all the conveniences, including barbecue suppers for $9.95. That became affordable because our rate per night was $16, and doing laundry was free. Treelessness becomes less important. I will say the wind in Texas was ferocious, but that was not the campground's fault.
