There just doesn't seem to be much to choose from in this part of Ohio. We were surrounded by permanent residents, many in pretty decrepit accommodations. We had trouble getting in, then we had trouble getting out. We expected 50 amp but didn't get it. It was an adequate place to spend a night but we'd avoid it another time.
The state of Kentucky operates this park under agreement with the Corps of Engineers, which is responsible for the lake. The sites are spacious and nicely landscaped, but only a few will accommodate big rigs comfortably. These are near the day-use area, so there can be some noise, especially on weekends. There was some kind of concert one night we were there but far enough away that it wasn't really intrusive. The view of the lake more than made up for it. Each site has a large paved area with a picnic table and grill. There is lots to do there, including fishing and a museum.
The owner called us on the road to get our arrival time, then left a note when traffic delayed us. He came as soon as we called, escorted us to our site, made sure we were comfortably settled, then told us to drop by in the morning and settle our bill. The campground is meticulously maintained, everything clean and freshly painted. Although it's small, we had no difficulty maneuvering to get in and out. We will stop here again.
This is a quiet park with lots of trees. Sites are nicely spaced with more than enough room for slides and awnings. Free firewood is a nice perk. There is Wi-Fi at the park office but not at the sites. Non-motorized boats are available for rent, and there are trails of varying lengths, including a fairly flat walk around the lake. However, many, perhaps most, of the sites are well off level. We called to make our reservation, and the park employee was very gracious about helping us choose an appropriate site with a manageable grade. Rate is for South Carolina seniors.
Sites are spacious and well-separated for a quiet, private stay. Cell phones worked well. It is convenient to activities in Sarasota. Staff was pleasant, even stopping to tell us not to rush to leave since no one was coming in. This was our second stay here, and we will return.
This was the first park we ever stayed at, and it has gotten better and better over the years. Although some sites are small, others are quite roomy. The lakefront sites, available for a maximum of two weeks, have a beautiful view. There is a small airport next door, but it's a minor nuisance. The park offers trails for walking and bike riding, golf, boating and birding.
This is a regular stop for us on our way to and from South Florida. It's nothing fancy, but it's clean and reliable, and the new owner was very pleasant and friendly. Front-row sites overlook a nice little lake. We've never been bothered by noise from I-95, but we're in the habit of running the fan at night. It's easy in and out with good-size pull-throughs. We were surprised this trip at how busy it was and will call ahead next time if it's in season.
The sites along the stream are spacious and well-separated, plenty of room for a big rig and a car, and lots of trees. Those on the other side of the campground are next to the road and may be noisy, although traffic is light at night. All sites are first-come, first-served, but we had no problem finding a very nice site in mid-June. There are evening ranger programs in summer. No Wi-Fi but the phones worked well.
This was a pleasant park with spacious sites. As mentioned, the road to the park is narrow and curvy but manageable for a big rig. The park offers various activities including fishing and disk golf. The rest rooms were closed for construction when we were here, but the park staff called us in advance to make sure that wouldn't be a problem. There is no Internet and our ATT phones didn't have a signal. We spent three nights and wouldn't hesitate to return.
We found the owners to be courteous and helpful. A problem at our site was corrected immediately. The Wi-Fi was consistently strong. Sites are a bit narrow, but we were in a long pull-through with plenty of room for our coach and car with lots to spare. This site could be a double back-in during busier times. The picnic tables looked new. The campground is convenient to Halifax and Peggy's Cove. We thought the price was reasonable for the accommodations and location.
Nice-sized sites were easy to get in and out of. Split-rail fences separate the sites. Wi-Fi worked well at our site near the main building. The campground was very quiet and peaceful and appeared well-maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful. Four ponds offer catch-and-release fishing. Pull-through sites are in a big field with no shade after mid-morning. The campground is now a Yogi Bear Jellystone. Our rate was Passport America. We would definitely stay here again.
The boarded-up window at the office tells the story. This campground is neglected and poorly managed. When we arrived with reservations before 5 p.m. there was no one to show us where to go. We called, and the absentee owner returned our call promptly. The site he assigned us was occupied and not the pull-through we were promised. We learned the only pull-through sites now have long-term occupants. By talking to others staying here, we got the sense that there is no effort being put into maintaining this business. We will not be returning.
There's nothing fancy here, but it's an easy and convenient stop along I-10. Owners are courteous and accommodating. Road noise wasn't a problem. Wi-Fi worked well. Access to and from sites was good. We will stop here again.
Owners seemed very disorganized and didn't keep track of who occupied what site. The cable was extremely fuzzy. We had a nice view next to a lake, and the Wi-Fi worked well. We had lots of space since the electric hookups in the two sites next to us weren't working. We would avoid staying here again.
This park is away from the bustle and honky tonks but convenient to the beach, shopping, St. Andrew's State Park and other services. The owners are friendly, courteous, and helpful. There is a nice screened-in pool. The bath houses and laundry are clean and neat. The Wi-Fi has worked well at all times. Some sites are narrow, but there are others that are more than adequate, including some along the ponds. The pine trees do drop some needles and cones, but the cement slab is easy to keep clean. We will go back.
