The attraction here is Frontier Fort itself (home of the world's largest bison statue, petting and feed-the-bison zoo, etc.), not the campground. Most sites are occupied by (very friendly) long-term oil-patch workers, and for the most part well kept and clean. Casual restaurant on site (did not try). OK for big rigs with careful maneuvering (very large adjacent parking lot makes it easy to turn around, and doubles as overflow campground--without sewers). Sites are quite close to each other, and everywhere is dirt. We would stay again but only for an overnighter.
Stayed one night only; rate is with KOA discount. Good W/S/E connections; solid cell-phone coverage. Dirt sites and roads (they do get muddy), grass 'backyard,' reasonable distance between sites. Can be a little tricky to maneuver for big rigs but OK. Some distance from the Interstate, and traffic on the access route was bumper-to-bumper the day we were there. Major mall and Wal-Mart about ten minutes away. Not what we would consider a destination, but certainly adequate for an overnight stop.
Rate is with Good Sam discount. OK campground for the most part. All sites are pull-through but can be a little tight for big rigs (narrow roads, shortish sites); no trees to contend with, which helps in terms of maneuvering. Good WSE connections. Only about one kilometer from the highway but the access road as well as the inner roads and sites are dirt. It had rained recently, and everything from the highway on was muddy; truck, fifth-wheel and car were absolutely filthy by the time we left the next day. Still, this campground would be excellent for an overnighter--on a dry day.
This is a large county park with a busy golf course adjacent. The campground itself is well away, by the river, and quiet. Lots of large trees, the sites are well spaced. Recent renovation work is evident, as several sites are still very soft dirt (not compacted yet) and the connection posts are brand new. Thanks to those renovations big-rig access is now possible with caution, but several sites are definitely to be avoided by any long or high rig (tight spots and major overhanging branches); still, we had no issue with our 40' high-profile rig.
Rate is with Good Sam discount. Very easy to access, big rigs no problem. Very friendly staff who were also quite helpful with a technical issue (connections). Transient sites are fairly close to each other but reasonable (awnings are no problem) and level. Roads and sites are dirt. Lots of oil-patch and highway workers with nice rigs; we didn't see any unkempt sites as is sometimes the case with long-termers. Certainly OK for an overnight stay.
Rate is with Good Sam discount. Nice, large campground, half of which is occupied by mobile homes and cottages, all in good taste. The sites and roads are dirt and unfortunately very, very dusty when dry. Our pull-through site (177) was not very level (we ended up with all wheels on one side well off the ground once the rig was level). Still, easy to maneuver for big rigs and easily accessed from the Interstate. Casual restaurant on site (did not try). Severe weather came through the area during the evening and night; when a tornado warning was issued (a tornado watch had already been in effect for several hours), we elected to leave the rig and go to the underground shelter at the main office (as per campground instructions), only to find it locked up. Happily for us, the nearest tornado hit the night ended up being about 20 miles away. Disappointingly, no staff ever showed up to open the shelter up.
A fairly large, modern campground that is well organized and surprisingly pleasant (given the close proximity of highways and industrial areas). Easy to get to and no problem for big rigs. The pull-through sites are of the shared-post type, with the benefit of a larger 'backyard' on the entry-door side of the rig. Gravel inner roads but well maintained. Good W/S/E connections, strong cell signal throughout the park. There is a nice pond and large, grassy areas to walk a dog. Would definitely stay here again.
Nice enough KOA. Seasonal sites are fairly well spaced but the others (pull-through) are rather close to each other. Nice grounds, connections no problem, conveniently close to the highway (but not close enough to be overly noisy); exiting toward the Interstate is a little tricky for big rigs, go slow. The dog-walking area is not the largest but very thoughtful and pleasant, near the creek walking path. Would certainly stay here again for an overnighter.
Members or Passport America only. Rate is $20 per night plus mandatory Amenities Pass at $5 per day. Nice campground with level, well spaced and pretty sites. Water, electric (up to 50 amps) and sewer: no problems. Strong Verizon signal. Cleveland (groceries, diesel, etc.) about 10 minutes away. As mentioned by other reviewers, the campground can be difficult to navigate and sites a little tricky to back into. For bigger rigs, I would highly recommend dropping the trailer (or unhooking the toad) in the boat-launch parking lot and going to choose a campsite first. Once that was done, I had no issues with a long-bed dually and 40' RV. I would certainly camp here again.
This is a fairly large USACE campground on beautiful West Point Lake. The vast majority of the campsites are on or very close to the water; there are only a few from which one can't see the lake. Most sites are water and 30 amp, but about fifty sites have water and 50 amp. Many of the sites have quite a slope to them; big rigs, forget those. Pull-thruoughs are of the U-shaped variety, and not suitable for longer rigs either. Still, there are quite a few that are easily navigated and backed into without any problems (we were here in a 40-foot RV). The park gets busy during the summer, but most sites are well separated from their neighbours. Fairly strong AT&T 3G signal, quite a few DTV channels. No hiking trails as such, but walking all the loops amounts to about 5 miles. Lagrange, GA, is about 15 minutes away and has all the services.
Nice park where all campsites are on, or close to, the water. Full hookups with no problems; all sites have a concrete pad. Immaculate bathouses. Zero AT&T coverage. Nearest real services (grocery stores, etc.) are in Eufaula, AL, about 30 minutes away. All sites are listed for maximum 36 feet, but many will in fact accommodate a larger rig (we were in a 40-foot fifth-wheel and had no problems). Many campsites, however, do have a sloped approach that will make it very difficult for larger units. There are a few pull-throughs, but they are U-shaped and only suited to much smaller rigs. This park gets quite busy and can be a bit of a fish camp; it's also very nice and boasts lots of grass areas by the lake.
This state park is different in that it's also a "resort"! There are miles of white-sand beach (a one-mile walk from the campground, but there is a shuttle service), miles and miles of hiking trails (mixture of forest and dunes), and Lake Campbell on which to paddle and observe wildlife (rental kayaks available). The campsites are generally well spaced and most are separated from their neighbors by natural bushes and trees. Full hookups with no problems (up to 50-amp service), level concrete pads at every site (although some are starting to show their age), plenty of sites large enough for big rigs (but not all sites). Full AT&T 3G coverage. Everything is available within a short drive from the campground, from restaurants to outlets to grocery stores and more.
Great Georgia state park. We've camped here a few times and the staff is always fantastic, from the check-in counter to the rangers. The campground is not on the lake but is only a short walk/drive away from it. There are several very nice hiking trails with boardwalks totaling about 5 miles, and paddling on the lake and its feeder, the Little River, offers great birding opportunities (from blue herons to bald eagles and everything in between). Most campsites are very well spaced and offer privacy, while a few are in the open and perfect for satellite reception. Since November 2012, loop #2 includes a brand new, superb bathhouse as well as several sites with full hookups, at a slightly higher price ($32/night without discounts). Strong AT&T 3G service throughout the park. The park does get pretty busy on weekends so reservations are recommended. We will definitely camp here again.
This review is about the new (October 2012) location for this RV Park. This campground caters primarily to golfing snowbirds. It is located right in the golf course, so the setting is quite nice and very quiet. All sites feature 50-amp full hook-ups. A third of the sites are shaded by trees and separated by little bushes, but are a very tight fit for a big rig; the other 32 sites are perfect for large motorhomes and fifth-wheels (large grassy spaces on what was a fairway, and a good view of the sky for satellite dishes). The facilities are all brand new (bath house, laundry room, "community center," etc.) and extremely clean. The water at our site tasted great, electrical power was top notch (maintaining 120V even though at one point we had both A/Cs, the water heater and a number of other appliances going), and the sewer hookup was nice and low for good flow. Everybody we met was extremely friendly and we were immediately invited to a potluck the night we arrived, even though we had nothing to bring! We chose not to partake, as we were only staying for a few nights, but it was typical of everyone's friendliness. The only downside for us was a lack of nature trails or a lake where to paddle. Still, we loved it for a few days and will gladly return.
Very conveniently located near I-75, great for an overnight stay. They have a separate section dedicated to overnight/short stays and that's where we stayed. Everything worked well (power, water, sewer, cable, etc.). There are several farm animals (goats, cows, even an emu) in large enclosures at the rear of the park (kids will love them). The staff at reception were very nice and efficient; they even guided us to our campsite and offered to help with hooking up. There is some noise from the highway but that is to be expected. Unfortunately, quite a few rigs in the longer-term section were in bad shape and the vehicles associated with these sites were parked a little anywhere so it's not the prettiest campground. It's also a little short on activities (lake, hiking trails, etc). Still, we would very gladly overnight here again.
This is a large park with 200+ sites in a large field with a few large ponds (catch and release is allowed). There are no hiking trails or anything of the sort, although the pool and deck by the main building are very nice. The amenities are all quite nice, including a huge community room with satellite TV and free internet. The bathrooms are modern and immaculate. Most importantly, the staff were fantastic. We camped here on our way to Key West just as Hurricane Isaac was making its way toward Florida. As the weather forecast was getting worse by the hour and all the campers were getting ready to evacuate further north, we stayed one more night than planned and the owner offered to take us in at a related campground near Leesburg to wait it out. We elected to head for the east coast instead, but I can't overstate the staff's helpfulness and looking out for us in those uncertain circumstances. We will definitely try camp here again.
We absolutely loved this campground. It is expensive. But you get a lot for your money. The location is fantastic (right on Hwy 1 and about 20 minutes from downtown Key West), and absolutely no problem for big rigs. The sites are superb in layout as well as in amenities (tiki hut with patio furniture, individual docks for the waterfront sites so you can bring your own jet ski or kayak, 50 amps, great cable, lush landscaping, etc). Last but not least, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure everything was to our liking. We were here just after Hurricane Isaac had gone through and they were very thorough in cleaning up and making sure all was well on the whole campground. We will definitely try to camp here again.
A great campground for big rigs; no sweaty headaches here. Not many activities available within the resort, but all the sites are premium with paved, level, ultra-long runs and first-rate hookups, perfect for an overnighter or a few days. The owner was very friendly and helpful, providing us with information on the area as well as pointing out everything at our site when we arrived. Located about ten minutes from Murphy, a nice little town with all services. Will definitely camp here again when in the area.
A nice Georgia state park, with lots of hiking and biking trails available. The campground is nice and small, rather tight for a big rig. Many sites are "pull-throughs" but of the short half-moon type, so for a long trailer they are in fact back-ins. Surprisingly for a Georgia state park, the restrooms were not all that clean. Perhaps the absence of a host during our stay explains that.
Located atop a mountain, this campground provides great views of the Smokies and the French Broad river. The campground is pretty and very well kept (all the way to trash cans at each site!). They also maintain about four miles worth of hiking trails on the mountain flank, as well as a small catch-and-release pond. The entrance and access road are curvy and rather tight, and the turnaround at the end of the campground is barely large enough. We just managed with a 40' fifth-wheel.
This is a small, very friendly campground with a focus on adults. Full outdoor kitchen in the gazebo, where the great owners regularly cook up meals for the campers, not to mention coffee in the morning. Tons of outdoors activities in the area (hiking, waterfalls, swimming...). Most sites provide ample shade. The entrance/exit is a bit tricky to navigate with a 40' fifth-wheel but the owners and hosts provide assistance and monitor traffic on the road to ensure a safe exit. We had a lovely stay and will definitely come back.
