Good location for St. Louis and Cahokia Mounds State Park. You do have to be alert for the correct route to the campground. As you approach Casino Queen, there is a red sign with yellow lettering "RV PARK MINI MART NOW OPEN" with an arrow indicating a left turn prior to the main entrance to the casino. Looking left however gives a view of a locked gate. The road turns left before the gate but it's hard to see before you actually make the turn, as we found out later. Instead we turned into the main Casino entrance. That is no problem, there is plenty of room to maneuver, and a security van came right over and escorted us to the RV park. Security vans also took us to the casino where we had a good dinner one evening, and to the metro station for easy access to St. Louis. Ask for their number when you check in. Trains run along one side of the park all day. Two nights we heard none, the third night we were woken twice by train horns. Overall the best choice for the area.

Clean bathrooms and laundry room, nice swimming pool with under roof game room. Clean and ample inside facilities for get-togethers. Several sites have gazebos for family groups. Paved and gravel sites, both level and spaceous. Great overnight stop on I-95 or longer term base for the area. Friendly people. Only drawbacks are marginal WiFi (email fine, streaming poor) and limited cable TV lineup. Wide open for satellite reception. I stay here every year visiting family.

We were in Site 6 which fit our 32 ft RV plus pick up with not one inch to spare. It was across from the office so all the park traffic passes by. Off season it was very quiet except for the weekend when the park filled up with families with kids. We had no cell phone or air card coverage here so we used the park's WiFi which we could access from our site. It was free. After a rain, the interior roads have standing water in many places. The picnic tables are covered (open sided roof) but it was on a dirt so it was very muddy when wet. The park is in a good location for access to Cherokee and the National Park. They have a decently stocked store on site, a nice indoor pool plus many other amenities that would appeal to children. All the RV spots are paved, plus there are grass spots for tents and quite a few rental cabins.

Two shaded loops each have a central bath house. They are unheated which makes for some nippy showers on cold winter days, but plenty of hot water and always clean. Plenty of shade but room enough in almost spaces for our 33' fifth wheel and truck. The trees impact satellite reception in many sites, so we had to put our cube on top of the RV. We had good cell phone reception. The park is about 10 miles from most shopping, and it's a bit of a drive to the coast through a lot of city. Very quiet even though full every weekend.

Wi-Fi service spotty and slow but usable at my site. Nice clean campground with clean laundry and bath facilities. Big rig friendly. Convenient location with nearby shopping for food, restaurants, home improvement center, etc. Fairly quiet location short distance off major roads.

Easy on and off I-95 on the north side of Jacksonville. A very large park with sites suitable for large rigs. We were placed near the front where most short-term and better-looking rigs were. (There were some RVs in very poor condition near the rear of the property.) The site was paved and level. Staff was pleasant and efficient. We had our propane refilled there and did a load of laundry. One long term resident complained the the 4 washers and 4 dryers were not sufficient for a park of that size, and I'd agree. Bathrooms were clean and in good shape. We did notice the jet aircraft noise overhead until about 10 pm and starting again at 8 am.

It is a nice little park tucked into a triangle of land between FL281 and the Indian Bayou. A wide paved road loops through the middle of the 27 sites, all of which are either back-in or pull-in. Suitable for big rigs; the sites were wide and some were quite deep. There is no vegetation between sites. The few extra dollars for a river front site was worth it; the view was beautiful. The laundry room had three washers and dryers and a folding counter. The clubhouse was next to it in the same building, adjacent to a small pool. The wifi was pretty good and the cable had 30 channels. It is pet friendly, but there is limited room to walk the dog due to the small size of the property.

This is a nice little park just off the interstate and next door to a travel plaza. We had truck trouble and they were very accommodating, as we had to drop the fifth wheel trailer for a few days. Our gravel site was level and roomy and we had full hook-ups. Also included was Wi-Fi and a 26 channel cable TV lineup which included 6 HBO channels. We noticed the police patrolled through the park on a regular basis. People in the office were both friendly and helpful. Not a lot in this area, but I’d recommend it as a good overnight stop for I-10 travelers.

This park is suitable for big rigs, with double wide paved interior roads, roomy paved pull-throughs and no vegetation to contend with. We booked one of the slightly cheaper back-in sites that lined one edge. All sites were level and they were hosed down after each departure. They advertise a heated pool, but it is not heated in the winter months: November through March. There is a hot tub under cover. The office has a small store and DVD rentals for a dollar. Next to it is a modest library room with a book exchange and computer desks, and next to that a gym with three treadmills, free weights and one of those all-in-one exercise machines. The laundry room was nice, with 6 washers and dryers, change machine, iron and board and large folding area. The bathrooms were the nicest I’ve seen anywhere, worthy of the label “resort” and spotless. The Wi-Fi was excellent and consistently fast. One drawback for big rigs is the turn from Rayford onto Geneva, which goes through a residential neighborhood. If someone is sitting at the light on Geneva, it is a bit tight to make the turn because there’s no room to swing wide enough to keep the rear wheels on the pavement. The neighborhood streets are paved though bumpy, and watch out for dogs on the road. The only other negative, noticeable because we were near the front of the RV park, was that the owners have birds: parrots, conures, etc., that screech and make a racket from their cages set out on the patio behind the office/clubhouse. They are brought in at night. Then the park is very quiet with only the sound of an occasional train in the distance. There was a small, fenced dog park at the back corner and one border of the park is designated a pet walk area. They provide pick-up stations and have a snitch policy where if you do not pick up after the pet and someone reports it, they get a free night and you get kicked out of the park. As a result, this is the only park I’ve been in where I never had to step over other people’s pet droppings when picking up my own. They have a security patrol and rules are strictly enforced. That said, all the employees we came in contact with were friendly and professional.

The park office was open until 10 pm, which was convenient for late-arrivals. I was in the smaller back loop, along the river. This was advantageous because there were fewer campers sharing the bath house. It was also fairly open and is a good area for big rigs (sites 61-84). The bath house was climate-controlled, clean and overall very nice. There was one washer and one dryer there. Sites had a fairly level pad just wide enough to park the RV on, which was necessary because of the wet conditions. Otherwise the ground was very saturated which made for muddy walking with the dog. There were boardwalks through a swamp and along the river, as well as a dock, boat ramp and boat slips.

The name of this resort is now "Dunedin RV Resort & The Blue Moon Inn". We couldn't have picked a better location to access most areas of the Tampa Bay. Near the state parks at Honeymoon Island and Caledesi as well as shopping, dining and golf. There were many seasonal residents and it was set up pretty well for big rigs however we had a back-in site that was a tight fit for both our RV and tow vehicle. The pull-throughs looked roomier. Cable TV was available only to seasonal residents and water pressure was weak. Wi-Fi was pretty slow. The park also had a decent laundry room. We were given a calendar of outings, classes and other activities when we checked in. There were shuffleboard courts and a heated pool. We were on a concrete slab and noticed no bug problems, perhaps because it was mostly very cold during our January stay. The maintenance staff was always in evidence and kept the place spotless.

This is a beautiful park with spacious, private sites. We had a nice shady site with the only caveat being we had to take care backing in because of overhead branches. Our site was sandy and level. The staff at the office were helpful and had lots of information on things to do in the area including the best laundromats and where to shop. Although the park was full the bath houses, located in the center of each loop, were never busy and were clean. We had cellular service there even though we were nine miles off the interstate.

We stopped here for an overnight. Easy access to I-10, one mile off the interstate but very quiet. Lots of trees, but plenty of room on roads and sites. There were 5 tent sites, 5 rental cabins and 46 pull-throughs. Some were 30 amp plus water, others were 50 amp plus water and sewer. Wi-Fi was generally good though slow at times. There is a laundry room with 4 washers and three dryers. It and the bathrooms were well kept. There is a store and small restaurant on site, as well as DVD rentals for $1 and a book exchange.

Fairly new, this place looks like a parking lot. The front half is paved, the back half is gravel roads and sites. The sites are mostly roomy pull-throughs, with some back-ins around the perimeter. But all is nicely compacted and mostly level, with some grass and shrubs between sites as well as a picnic table on a slab next to each one. In December, most of the traffic were overnighters passing through via I-95. We were visiting family in Roanoke Rapids, so this worked well as a base for us. Slow, unsecured Wi-Fi, 50 amp electric, heavily chlorinated water and sewer were included in our rate. 12 channel cable TV was $3 extra. There is a small fenced dog park in one corner. There are small, though good, clean, bathrooms; one stall and shower each for men and for women. One drawback was that there was no laundry room. We were told they plan to build one in the spring. There are also plans for a pool and clubhouse, though only the slab is in place. Located in a rural area, it is far enough off the interstate that road noise is not a problem. We heard an occasional train in the distance.

We stopped here for one night. This park was located an easy 7 miles off I-95. The office staff was very friendly, recommended a good restaurant for dinner (Georgio’s, Hwy 78) and led us to our site. The Wi-Fi was very weak and Verizon was intermittent, so we were able to pick up our e-mail but could not use the internet otherwise. The small laundry room had two washers and two dryers, was clean, and had a clothes rack, folding table, soap dispenser and comfortable seating. Our pull-through sandy site was fairly level, roomy, and had a picnic table on an adjacent slab.

We stayed in the Coquina loop: the sites are sandy and well shaded. There were lots of Live-oaks hung with Spanish moss. We had to watch out for the numerous tree trunks and overhanging branches when backing in our fifth-wheel, but the site was roomy and had enough length and width to easily accommodate the RV and pick-up. There was never a wait at the three-lane dump station. The bath house was conveniently located in the center of the loop. It tended to be sandy but it was cleaned on a regular basis. Three stalls and showers (one handicap accessible) plus several sinks were basic but sufficient. There were also two washers and dryers and a laundry sink outside the bath house. They had recycling bins next to the dumpster just outside the loop. The camp store had some limited supplies, a Wi-Fi area and a book exchange.

Nice little campground convenient to Boone. It was about 20 minutes to the Blue Ridge Parkway entrance at Blowing Rock and there were a couple of nice golf courses in the area. The park was quiet. A list of rules was given at check-in including no alcohol, no cussing, pick up after pets, etc. The place was clean and well maintained. We saw no problems with the water quality, though we do double-filter. The site was was easy to pull into and roomy. We had to put a couple layers of leveler blocks on one side. As a result, the owner noticed our bottom step was high off the ground and brought over a couple of cinder blocks for use to use. The only negative I could see was, because of the long term residents, there were many vehicles parked along the road in front of our pull-through and we backed out because it would have been too tight to pull forward.

We stayed here for a few months while our house was being finished. It is a low-end trailer park with mostly permanent residents and about ten pull-throughs near the road for overnighters. The website uses the word "pristine" but maintenance is sorely lacking. The only good thing I can say is the restrooms were nice. The laundry room was definitely not. The advertised Wi-Fi was no longer being maintained when we left and was not available. The trees in the park are poorly positioned, not kept trimmed back and are difficult for big rigs to clear. Pets are allowed but, in general residents do not pick up after their animals. As a quick stop with easy on-and-off the interstate it may be passable but if you're looking for a nice place to base for a vacation, go to the nearby Lakewood RV Resort instead.

This park has been completely renovated, though some items are not yet completed. We stayed here for 11 days because it is located so close to Anna Maria Island, the intracoastal waterway and the beaches. Each brick paved site was level and quite roomy; they were separated by narrow mulched beds of small shrubs. Our site was on the outer edge of the park which meant we were about 50 feet from Cortez Road which is quite busy during the day. Sites on the opposite side of the park are quieter and alongside a canal with individual boat docks. There is a new clubhouse with activities such as bingo, nightly movies, socials, and etc. The new pool was clean and heated. Pets are welcome but the only place they can do their business is on the narrow perimeter where there is some spotty grass. Pet clean-up stations are provided. The sites are all for sale. Owners will have the option to rent out their sites to others; as I understand it, reservations can still be made through the Holiday Cove office as we did. This park will merit a higher rating when it is fully complete. Our main complaint was that the advertised wi-fi, so important to us when we're on the road for long trips like this, was not working during our entire stay. There was a single ethernet connection available in the clubhouse with campers often waiting in line to use it. Management received numerous complaints while we were there and said they were working to get the wi-fi in service. Also not as advertised was the laundry room; it was still an empty building with workmen in it daily. We used a laundromat that was directly across the street.

We used this park twice on a trip to and from Florida for its easy access to I-95. It is 2.5 miles off the interstate. We had difficulty getting cell phone signals; the wireless internet and cable were excellent. We were escorted to our sites. The first night we were near the rear of the campground where it was very quiet. The pull-through site was level dirt/sand and shaded. On our return trip we had a pull-through gravel site, nearer the front, which was level and shaded. Some road noise even though the park is bounded by a privacy fence. On our second visit there were distant booming noises from the adjacent Ft. Stewart Military Reservation all evening and into the next morning.

This park was well located for visiting Brevard, Asheville, and Lake Lure, with easy access just off I-26. The park was quiet, clean and well-maintained as well as dog-friendly. The upper half consists of park models for over-55 residents and was the nicest such place we've seen. The lower half is a big-rig friendly campground with plenty of room. A small creek borders the wooded back boundary of the campground and we saw a bobcat while walking along it. (The levee mentioned previously is complete.) We were also able to fill our propane tank here. There is a large, heated pool which was not yet open in early May.

A beautiful park on the Spruce Run Reservoir. The condition of the restrooms were the main reason I could not rate the park as a 10. The facilities are quite worn and, although they were cleaned daily, weekend use was overwhelming and by Saturday night things were pretty grungy. There were 5 stalls and 3 showers (one of each wheelchair accessible)in each of the two bathroom buildings, but one of the buildings had only one shower in use, and one of the men's showers ran cold water only. Weekdays the campground was almost empty. It is primarily a popular weekend place for extended families who are tent-camping; definitely great for kids with the lake, a beach, boat rentals and playgrounds. Our spot was tight for a 32' Fifth-wheel due to overhanging trees. (There is lots of space between sites.)If you have a rig this large the following sites will accommodate you: 7, 8, 9, 16, 17, 21, 24, 33, 39, 61, 67, 70. Note: The park day-use area allows pets, but the campground does not.

We stayed here 9 nights in a 32' fifth-wheel and were given a back-in site overlooking the new pool. The pool was heated, very clean, and still open in mid-Oct. (The "lake" was a large pond.) The park location was well-placed just a few minutes from I-26, but off the main roads in a quiet location. Across the street is a kennel, convenient for boarding (dogs only) if you're out on a day-long excursion. The sites were gravel, level, wide-enough to accommodate the slide-outs, and well-maintained with a picnic table and fire-ring. Parked tow vehicles needed to be tucked rather snugly into the space. Entry to the CG is gated and campers are given a keycard. We had no problem accessing the free wi-fi service except late at night when we guessed it was probably turned off. A friend who came in for lunch with us needed to check in at the office and pay a $2 visitor fee as explained on their website. We will camp here again.

Very pleasant state park about 10 miles off I-95. We stayed in the Northeast loop (full hookups, pets allowed); some trees, but other loops were really in the woods and heavily shaded. Sites were paved, some more level/longer than others. Our pull-through site (#19) had a rather tight radius and took a little jockeying to situate it so we could open the slides on our 32' fifth-wheel. We had to pull uphill and partly over the grass to exit. However, we saw larger rigs than ours there; bigger motorhomes were generally in the longer, more level back-in sites. Site 23 looked like the roomiest pull-through and sites 6, 10, 11, 14, 20, 26 and 30 were the longest/most level back-ins. There was a nice assortment of trails in the park. The nearby town of North East has a Food Lion, Wal-mart, Flying J, marine supply stores and some great restaurants.

We stayed in Camp Burson, which is on the main park road just before you reach the park entrance. Of 100 sites, 16 are hard-surface pull-throughs and another 30 are back-in onto gravel; the rest are grass. 30 amp service, water and sewer are available. Camping with your pet will cost an additional $3 per night. There is a small laundry room (3 washers and dryers), and the bathrooms are small and basic (2 stalls, 1 shower), but clean and well-supplied. Access to trails around the lake are at the spillway at one end of the campground. All sites were well-shaded and had a picnic table and fire-ring. Entry for swimming in the park's lake is included; there is a very nice sand beach with lifeguards and bathhouses. The park's restaurant was very good both for regular dining and the Sunday buffet lunch. Rentals of bikes, canoes, paddle boats and kayaks are available in the park. Gas/Walmart/fast-food/groceries are just a couple of miles away in the small town of Marion.

We spent three relaxing nights here. They ask your size when you call for reservations and match spaces accordingly. We had no trouble backing in our 29' fifth-wheel. The campground hosts were helpful, assisting each rig into its space. They also recommended a great electrician who came out to our site that same evening to troubleshoot a faulty outlet. Can't see how two rigs could pass each other on the entrance road, but no traffic meant no problem. The sites were level, thickly gravelled and shaded. The campground is laid out along Stoney Creek along one center lane with a turnaround circle at its end. Walking across the small bridge at the other end puts you right in town. Use the directions to the campground that are posted on their website to avoid any attempt to drive your rig across this bridge. Bathrooms were immaculate, with two stalls and one shower in each.

We had a good experience with this campground. (We also had to sign the above-mentioned damage waiver.) Our hilltop site had lots of trees but was roomy. The pad needed some additional gravel; this became obvious during a rainy week when our site became muddy in spots. A picnic table and fire ring were provided. The employees we encountered were friendly. The store had a good selection of camp supplies and groceries, as well as a small snack bar.

On Lake Habeeb reservoir, off I-68 just east of Cumberland, this large campground is divided into 9 loops, only one having electric hook-ups and two allowing pets. All the sites were nicely wooded, on stone dust pads with gravel drives and with plenty of room between them. Each site had a picnic table, fire ring and lantern post. Each loop had a bathhouse. Ours was well-used, but clean and well-supplied, as well as handicap accessible. A trail runs through the campground (open to hikers and mountain bikers) and goes completely around the lake. Beaches, fishing and boat rentals are available in this scenic park, and there is a golf course and Lodge as well. We had dinner in the restaurant there one evening; it was pricey, but the lakeside dining room had a wall of windows with a wonderful view. The staff in the campground office and our loops resident campground host were helpful. The place was practically deserted after Labor Day.

This was a nicely shaded campground (except for a dozen open sites near the front entrance) with a long, gravel pad, a picnic table and fire ring at each site. The tent sites are in their own secluded areas. I'd estimate about two-thirds of the sites with hookups were seasonals, but all were very nicely maintained. The campground had a pool, a separate wading pool, and plenty of other recreational activities for the kids. The place was full, with lots of children, on a summer weekend but emptied out quite a bit during the week. The restrooms were basic but clean. The office staff was friendly and efficient. The office had a fairly well stocked camp store, with a more limited grocery section. There was a nice snack bar selling both hot and cold breakfast and snack items, as well as ice cream. A worship service is held in the recreation hall on Sunday mornings. A security guard patrols the park during quiet hours, which were enforced. We noticed employees were always going around the park doing maintenance and cleaning up. Nicely located for the many activities available in the surrounding Laurel Highlands.

The views from our hilltop site, the peaceful atmosphere, the clean pool and the spotless bathrooms and laundry room were all top-notch. We are repeat campers here and always enjoy our stay. Free wi-fi access is definitely a bonus. The only snag this time was a problem with our reservation. They showed us arriving on a date other than the one we had reserved. They did accommodate us anyway; however (considering some of the previous negative reviews on this subject) I would ask for an email confirmation next time, or maybe call again before our trip to confirm.

This was an excellent place for a two-night stop. Convenience to the highway meant there was some droning background noise from Rt. 37. The place was clean and well-maintained and the camp store well-stocked. The staff was friendly and assisted us in backing between two trees into our site. The "Stop Here to Register Line" is in front of spaces A1-A6; avoid them if you don't want a delay exiting your space when other rigs are arriving.
