A beautiful park. I do agree with other reviews that the noise from trucks entering and leaving the quarry area was loud and annoying especially early in the morning. The pull through site we stayed in appeared to be created as an afterthought as it had one section of crushed stone across a grassy area and the remainder was paved. The site was not level. There were numerous small sites that seemed barely long enough to place an RV. The water connections were placed in odd locations and ours was so far away an additional length of hose still did not reach. I like the fact that the sites were not close and there was plenty of grassy area. This was our first time at a state park.

A beautiful campground. Has a nice play area for kids. Sites are level. Owners friendly and helpful. Even though it is located right off interstate our site was situated where there was very little traffic noise. Cable TV is available but only offered approximately 6 or 7 channels. Wi-Fi free and excellent reception.

A nice campground. Landscaping is interesting and appears some sites are on tiered terrain. The only downside was the low water pressure. There was not enough pressure to take a shower. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Where to begin with this campground? The negatives far outweigh the positives. So the short list of positives. The place looks nice upon entering. The sites were level. The campground was quiet, with the exception of the trains. Cable TV worked well with about 80 channels to choose from. The negatives. There are many old rundown campers in the park. Advertise Wi-Fi but it does not work unless you go to the main building, in my opinion that is deceptive advertising. Bathrooms have no soap dispensers or paper towels or any method to wash and dry hands. Bathrooms have signs that say, “Do not plug in more than one hair blower at a time.” Sounds like an electrical deficiency to me. Sewers are capped off with an inverted liter soda bottle painted red, I wonder if that is compliant? And last but not least, the owner went absolutely ballistic on us because our dog got loose, running around the park with his leash dragging behind him. She came out to the balcony and was screaming at me. Luckily I could not hear her because it was quite windy. As my husband joined me she started yelling at him to get the dog. When he replied that it was an accident she screamed obscenities and proceeded to tell us how to properly attach a leash, with the dog at one end and the owner at the other end. I know we broke a rule, it was truly an accident and I believe we were treated terribly by this woman. Her rant was totally unacceptable and poor customer relations. She had no problem taking our money for 6 nights at $38 a night which I think to be very overpriced. Unfortunately the campgrounds are few and far between and we had no choice but to stay here, we were visiting our daughter and family who are residents of Dickinson. We would never return here.

One of the nicest campgrounds we have ever stayed in. Has beautiful landscaped grounds, paved level sites. We were here one night but would love to return for a longer stay.

We stayed at this park for a couple of nights. It was convenient off of I-40. The park was well kept and it seemed to have plenty of things to do once the season gets going. An occasional train came through, although did not hear any during the night. Facilities were clean. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would return.

We really don't have a lot of good things to say about this place. On our 5th day here we were trying to empty holding tanks and their sewer system backed up. We originally arrived to find no one around, the office was locked and a young child came to the door and said he did not know where his dad was or when he would be back. We were told to find a place and check back later. The site we parked in, we later found out did not have an operating sewer. That should have been our first clue. The owner had us move to another location. He told us that their dump station was not operational. That should have been our second clue. This place looks like it may have been a KOA at one time. Some sites were level, others not. There were a lot of people living here full time with campers in poor condition. The Wi-Fi worked intermittently. There was not a very strong signal and we were as close to the building as we could be. I would not recommend this place unless it is for an overnight stop and you do not need sewer connections. The only reason we stayed here was because we are looking at relocating in this area. This place needs a lot of maintenance.

This campground was not fancy at all. The sites were level. It appeared to have many long term users. Laundry room was clean, one section where washers were located had no light, as fluorescent bulbs had burned out. The Wi-Fi worked at times and then at other times not so good at all. There was no cell service at all. We had to drive about 3 miles down the road in order to place calls. It was an OK place to stay while visiting Savannah.

I am not quite as impressed with this site as other reviewers. We needed a place for one night and unfortunately did not call ahead for a reservation. When we arrived it was shortly after 5 PM. We drove up to office, but found no one there. We looked for a night registration box but there was not one. We drove through the park and found some empty sites so pulled into one with the intention of registering in the morning. We were not there 5 minutes when a man approached us and in a very rude tone asked what did we think we were doing? It would appear to be obvious that we wanted to stay there. He got quite loud and was very clearly annoyed that we did not stop at the office. "Did you not read the sign ?" he said repeatedly. We stated that the office was closed and no lights were on. He continued to lecture us about the so called sign that we did not observe. If it had not been the fact that we were tired from a day of driving we would have left this place and gone somewhere that we were welcome. We have found that in our travels most RV campgrounds have night registration and assumed this to be the case. We would never stay here again. Perhaps if the owner is so concerned he should have the park gated to prevent intruders such as us. The sites were close and since we left early the next morning did not get a good feel for this place. We both were under the impression that there were mostly long term campers here.

This campground is built on a hill. All the sites are gravel. They are laid out in a tier fashion. We have a class C motorhome and rely on leveling blocks. We simply do not have enough blocks to get our motorhome level. If it were not for the fact that it was a long day traveling in heavy traffic, I would leave here and move on to somewhere else. The fact that we are being charged $42 for this site is quite irritating. I would not recommend this campground.

The campground was ok. The sites were level and gravel. There is not much grassy areas. There is a fenced in pet area. It looks like they are in the process of putting some sort of bench inside the pet run to sit. They advertised free wi-fi and what I found terribly annoying is when logging on they provide a disclaimer regarding their wi-fi and it states because it is free the quality cannot be guaranteed. What the heck is with that? In my opinion, they are simply advertising wi-fi as an added feature to their campground. The fact is that it does not work and if you get lucky enough to get online it is extremely slow There is no cable tv (except in the office) It is not distributed to the sites. Their staff stated they cannot get the cable company to come in and install cable. This place is ok for an overnight stay but I would not stay any longer than that.

This campground has spaces for RV's and permanent homes which they sell. I would say that 80 percent of the park is permanent single and double wide manufactured homes. The park is located directly off of Route 1. The sites available for RV's are either near the entrance to the campground or in the back of the park. The sites at the entrance are right next to the road and the heavy traffic on Route 1 is very noisy. The back of the park is near railroad tracks. There are trains running frequently. This is a 55+ park although I did see a few children on bikes riding around. The staff is friendly There are plenty of activities catered to the 55+ crowd. The grounds are very well maintained. The WIFI works quite well, however it is not free. Cable TV offers a variety of channels. Restrooms are clean, laundry area very nice. The only complaint I have is the noise level. We stayed here for a week and probably would stay here again

This is no longer a KOA campground according to the office staff. It is now an Encore park and is called Pine Island RV Resort. There are still some KOA logos around, not sure why This campground appears to be very old. There has been nothing done to upgrade its appearance. Cement pads were cracked with some worse than others. When we were brought to our assigned site the hookups were quite a distance away. We were placed in another site. After hooking up we found that there was a faulty electrical panel. Maintenance people came right over and replaced the panel. There are many old trailers and some permanent motor homes in this campground. There are plenty of activities for adults. Just about every day there is something on the schedule from breakfast being served, to card games, bingo, etc. There were a few families with children but I got the impression it was geared to an over 55 crowd. This was an ok place but not sure if we would return.

The park was well maintained. Some sites had leaves that had not been raked and removed. There appeared to be numerous permanent motorhomes here. Apparently from other reviews there are complaints of too many large dogs being allowed, however it was not a problem from my point of view. There were a few large breed dogs but all seemed well behaved. I guess it all depends on whether you are a pet-lover or not. The buildings were kept immaculate. The laundry building I used was clean but the machines were aging. It appeared to be mostly retired people staying here. All in all it was an OK place.

We stayed at this park recently and really liked it a lot. The sites are very level and there was plenty of room for most any kind of motorhome. The staff very friendly and helpful They have a fenced in area for dogs called Paw-Paw Park. It was clean and a large area for the pooch to romp around. Their laundry area was modern and very clean. It was quiet and peaceful here.

This campground is very nice for an overnight stay. Sites are level and plenty of space between sites. The management provides a printed "Welcome" sheet which states that they are on the edge of the desert and sometimes the cable TV works and sometimes it doesn't, and sometimes the Wi-Fi works and sometimes it does not. Well true to their statement, the cable system provided poor reception on some channels and good reception on others. The Wi-Fi came in and then was lost. I guess that is ok because we are warned in advance? I find it an odd way to do business. After all: are they not paying for a service that they are not receiving, and then passing that cost along to their customers? If you are interested in cable TV or Wi-Fi, this is probably not the place to choose for your stay.

Upon entering, this place looks very nice. Once inside the campground it is old and in need of upkeep. The sites are very close, maneuvering into one is a challenge. I needed to do laundry but after looking at what they called a laundry room decided against it. The washers and dryers were located behind the restrooms and were actually outdoors in what I can only describe as an after thought. There were three walls and the remainder exposed to the elements. The washers and dryers were very old and beat up looking. We were supposed to stay here 2 days but left after an overnight stay.

This was an ok park, fine for an overnight stay if you don't mind the sound of trains through out the night. It seems they were pretty frequent and I am a light sleeper. Not all sites were level. Some sites were somewhat close. The park was clean.

This was the 2nd time staying at this park. There are a considerable amount of permanent trailers here, some very old and not kept up very well. The grounds are very well maintained. It was very quiet. Restrooms are old but kept clean, however there was a distinct "damp" odor. There was what I thought to be a very strange rule listed and that is: you cannot walk your dog through the park, You must walk your dog within your assigned site. I have never encountered that type of rule before. There did not appear to be any activity here. Perhaps it was because they will be closing at the end of the month.

We stayed at this campground last winter during Daytona Bike Week. Not having known that when we made reservations we found the entire campground was filled with bikers. For the most part quiet time was observed. The sites were ok. I think they were a little closely spaced. There was a bathroom/shower building near our site. The laundry area only had 3 or 4 machines, so if you needed to do laundry you had to wait until the machines were free. This was an ok campground but I don't think I would want to stay here for any length of time.

I cannot say enough good things about the staff at this campground. We stayed there in 2006 when my husband got a very bad infection in his foot. At the time we were traveling with only the motor home and the staff arranged to take him to the local community emergency clinic via one of their staff members so we didn't have to deal with unhooking our motor home. We were treated with such kindness by the staff. Since we were unable to complete our planned trip we returned the next year and was able to enjoy the campground a little more. They had activities for everyone. The campground was quite nice. It had shady sites. I would highly recommend this campground.

We have stayed at Panama City Beach Resort for 2 months a year for the last 2 years. We think it is one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed at It is clean, quiet and within walking distance to the beach. In 2006 the staff were very nice people. 2007 was a different group and the only friendly person was their maintenance man. The front desk person was rude at times and not friendly at all. The only inconvenience I found was the laundry room is way to small and cramped and in 2007 they had removed the table where clothes could be folded. They were installing Wi-fi during the time we were there in 2007 and it had not been completed by the time we left. However, it will be a welcome addition.

This is a beautiful campground. All sites are grassy and well kept. The sites close the main office appeared to be in use by extended stay campers and seemed to be smaller sites. The rest of the sites were larger and spaced nicely. There are activities for children including 2 swimming pools. Wifi is available in the area surrounding the office. We camped at the back portion of the campground and found it to be very quiet. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were very pleasant and helpful.
