Bayou Segnette State Park, Westwego, Louisiana

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We really enjoyed this campground. It makes a perfect base for visiting New Orleans and environs. Do make note of the directions to the park on the park web site. We blindly followed Google Maps and ended up at a locked gate. If arriving during the day, you will want to enter off of Business US90/Westbank Expressway. If arriving after hours, there is an alternative entrance and I would check with the park ahead of time. When arriving, they want you to pull into the right lane and wait for them to open the gate, then pull up to the right and walk into the office. The lady that checked us in could use a short course in customer service, but she got the job done. They do give you a handout with a lot of helpful information -- a very nice touch. The sites are pleasant and very well-spaced. It is nice and quiet and dark at night, which we loved. It is an urban park, so there is the background of road noise, but tolerable. There also seems to be some raceway close by, but we only heard that infrequently. Most of the time we were gone out exploring. The dump station was fully operational during our visit, despite some earlier reviews. There seem to be a number of feral cats in the park that need some control. There are a few short, boardwalk trails and some nice areas for biking in the park. The few trees are short, so we had no problem getting DirecTV satellite. We had strong Verizon data and voice. There is a park WiFi but, as is almost always the case, it was very, very slow to nonexistent. We really enjoyed our stay at this park and will stay again. They also have cabins for rent that it would make it convenient to have non-RV friends stay to visit New Orleans. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

It is less than a 30 minute drive to the French Quarter. A fun alternative is to drive about 20 minutes to the Algiers Ferry and take it across to near the French Quarter. It will cost you $5 to park for the day and $2 per person for the ferry (no change given). There is a great bike trail on both sides of the Mississippi river.

Fontainebleau State Park, Mandeville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

As others have noted, there are two camping areas, the "old campground" and the "new campground" and have noted a preference for one over the other. We were in the old campground but in exploring both, they are very similar and the actual site is more important than the area. There are not any terrible sites that we noted. We had an outside loop, rather than interior, and we felt that was better. If staying again, we would go for one of the outside pull-through sites in the new campground. The sites are long and level with enough tree cover to provide shade without making it dark. We had good, strong 50 amp service. There is a dump station in each camping area. We did not have any problem getting DirecTV satellite with our portable dish. Verizon signal had good, strong data. There is WiFi that sort of worked, sometimes, slowly. We found the park to be very clean and noted folks out picking up trash on several occasions. We would certainly stay at this park again. We camped at Fontainebleau State Park in a Motorhome.

Tickfaw State Park, Springfield, Louisiana

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

You are not going to just happen onto this park - not a lot around. There are some pretty small roads getting to the park, but manageable. It is a very pleasant, quiet park. Even on Thanksgiving weekend, it seemed very calm with only the sound of kids playing. The sites are long and level with strong 50 amp hookups and water. The campground is well tended and manicured. We were able to get DirecTV satellite by using our portable dish and placing it near the road. Verizon signal was strong for both voice and data. Sites are well spaced. We would stay here again if wanting a quiet, calm few days. It is not a good choice if you want to view the sites around New Orleans and environs. There was supposed to be park WiFi and it showed up as a channel but would not get internet. They informed us that the internet had been down since sometime the year before when there was a bad flood in the Park. We would visit this park again if in need of some quiet down days. We camped at Tickfaw State Park in a Motorhome.

There are about 3 miles or so of hiking trails in the park, about half on board walks. It is also pleasant biking on the park roads. There is not a lot around the park. Come with the supplies that you will need for your stay. We actually left a few days earlier than we had planned because we ran out of things to do.

Natchez State Park, Natchez, Mississippi

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We found it a bit confusing getting to this campground. Be aware that that are two separate camping areas labeled as Campground A or 1 and Campground B or 2. How you enter will depend on which campground that you are in. We were in B and entered (off of the Natchez Trace Parkway) via State Park Road, then Wickcliff Road to the park entrance, you then have a couple of miles to travel on very winding roads to the campground entrance. All of the roads were in OK shape. You do pass some rather trashed-out structures on the roads to the Park, but the park itself was nice enough. We stayed at the park to visit Natchez which worked OK, but it is about 30 minutes into town. Our site was nice and level. We were able to get satellite for DirecTV by using our portable dish, but it took some work finding the signal. Verizon voice and data were usable. When we arrived, there was a tag on our site with our name and reservation information. We never saw any park personnel during our six-day stay. It was quiet and dark at night, which worked well for us. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Motorhome.

Bayou D'Arbonne Camping, West Monroe, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is about five miles north of Interstate 20 in a residential area of West Monroe. We used it as a base for visiting friends in Monroe, which necessitated considerable driving. This is primarily a working-persons campground with mostly long-term residents. It seems as if they keep three sites open for transients. If you elect to stay, you will want to call ahead as if you just pull into the campground there is no office. There is a manager on site, but he is located far in the back without any indication that he is the manager. We called ahead to make reservations; we were instructed to call back about an hour before arrival, then again after we had arrived. This produced the manager for check-in. This is your very basic campground - nothing fancy. We did not use the restrooms, so cannot comment there. We had planned to use the laundry, but you had to call the owner to come down so that you could pay him and unlock the doors. We chose to do laundry in town. Everyone we encountered was pleasant, but our neighbor started his truck at four in the morning and let it idle for an hour before departure. No WiFi. Our Verizon voice and data were strong and we were able to get the satellite for DirecTV. This campground served our purposes, but we would work to find a different campground if visiting the area. We camped at Bayou D'Arbonne Camping in a Motorhome.

Jimmie Davis State Park, Chatham, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a lovely state park that is quite a distance from any amenities. The sites are well spaced and well-appointed with wooden deck for the picnic table. Our site had great views of the pleasant lake. The only problem that we had was that our water facet leaked significantly, so that it had a big wet, muddy puddle when we arrived, making hookup very messy. We just used the water faucet to fill our holding tank and did not leave it on to continue flooding. Other than that all utilities were good. We were able to find a place down by the lake where we could set up our portable dish and get DirecTV satellite. We had good strong Verizon data and voice. They did have WiFi that sort of worked some of the time. Other than at check-in, we did not have any dealings with the staff and did really see any presence in the campground. However, it was a nice pleasant, calm experience. We would certainly camp here again if looking for a quiet getaway. We camped at Jimmie Davis State Park in a Motorhome.

Opelousas South City Park, Opelousas, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

Think Walmart parking lot with water and electric, and you will have a good idea of what this "campground" is like. We stayed in the area with paved parking and very, very bright spotlights. It might have been a better experience if we had stayed in the grassy field. It was not terrible, just not great. It takes some navigating through side streets to reach the park, and some of these streets have some low limbs, so use caution. On arrival there is no signage to indicate parking. Luckily there was another motorhome there when we arrived, and they told us the basics. Just pull up along the fence so that you can reach a hookup and someone will come along to collect your money. All of the park staff that we dealt with were extremely nice and helpful. There were two or three men that hung around the park that likely had no other place to go, and they talked late into the night. That was a bit sleep disturbing. There was also a bit of driving through the parking lot with some nice rap music. However, we really had no problems. The 50 amp hookup was good; we did not use the water hookup. We had strong Verizon data. DirecTV satellite was easy since there was no tree cover. There is a dump station, but we chose not to use it as there was a fairly significant drop-off of the pavement to reach it. If in the area again we would likely seek an alternative. We camped at Opelousas South City Park in a Motorhome.

LeFleurs Bluff State Park, Jackson, Mississippi

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

The state park is in a very urban area, just off of a very busy road and surrounded by busy freeways, so there is some substantial road noise in the campground. Getting to the park took a bit of doing. Realize that the campground area is separate from the other section of the park. Don't follow the main signs to the park, rather look for a campground symbol to direct you to the camping area off of Lakeside Drive (Highway 25). Use caution on the road leading up to the entrance gate, as there is a substantial hump that will send you swaying. Also the roads from the entrance gate to the campground are in really poor shape. The campsites closest to the water on the outside of the loop are at a substantially low elevation, so stay pretty swampy. Getting hooked up required wading through mud. There were a number of sites that are clearly long-term with some pretty trashed trailers, not a pretty site. The site next to ours was pretty junked up with, apparently, two adult families living in a small RV. However, everyone we met in the campground was pleasant. The utilities were good and we had very strong Verizon voice and data. With a lot of work, we were able to find a hole in the trees to pick up DirecTV satellite with our portable dish. We certainly felt good about the security, you had to have a gate code to get into and, yes, out of the park. This made a good campground for exploring Jackson. We camped at LeFleurs Bluff State Park in a Motorhome.

Natchez Trace Parkway -- Rocky Springs (NPS Campground), Rocky Springs, Mississippi

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

When we arrived at this free NPS campground, just off of the Natchez Trace, around noon there were no other campers so we had our pick of "sites." It was impossible to tell discrete sites. The campground layout, if there was a layout, looked like it had been done with crayons on a napkin after drinking too much. There was really no rhyme or reason. We finally chose a fairly level area that looked like it might be a site and was out of the road. The setting itself was actually very pretty and certainly calm. No one except us would like notice, but there was the sound of some sort of distant factory. Later on that evening, there were two additional campers that arrived. There are actually not very many sites that would be level and suitable for a big rig. As distinguished from the other two campgrounds on the Trace, there was no faucet for filling a holding tank. There was no dump, but the toilet does have flush toilets. The only park personnel we saw was a maintenance man emptying trash cans. We had planned on staying at this campground for two or three nights, but left after one night as we did not feel comfortable leaving our rig there to explore the area without any other campers there. It is heavily tree covered, but we were able to get satellite for DirecTV using our portable dish and a lot of patience. We did have weak, but usable Verizon voice and data using our booster. Given the reasonable cost (free), we would certainly stay here a night if passing through. We camped at Natchez Trace Parkway -- Rocky Springs (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:      

We stayed at this campground while drive the Natchez Trace. The last couple of miles to the park and the roads within the park had some prize size potholes. However, it only means you have to go slowly. The other issue of note is that most of the lake is dry. Sites that would have been beautiful water-front sites now look out on dry brown brush. However, even with that, it is a pleasant campground. There are actually three different campgrounds with full hookups. We stayed in the Deer Run area. The nearby Eagle Ridge area seemed to be a little more modern with some 50 amp sites. That is also the area with a camp host. Although we had no problems, we might have felt a little more secure leaving our RV for the day with the camp host nearby. Other than our entrance into the park and seeing the grounds maintenance, we did not see any official presence. The gate is not locked at night, but it felt perfectly fine. We were able to get DirecTV satellite with our portable dish, but it would be pretty difficult at some sites as it has significant tree cover. Verizon cell phone and data were weak but usable most of the time - only one dropped call. We did not see a lot of camp staff, but those we did encounter were pleasant. We would stay here again for a couple of nights if visiting the area, but would not make it a destination campground. We camped at Trace State Park in a Motorhome.

Pickwick Dam TVA Campground, Savannah, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We were really impressed when we drove into this campground, how neat and tidy it was tucked under a canopy of tall, mature pine trees. We did not have reservations since an earlier phone call had indicated that they would not be needed this time of year. The check-in office was closed, but a camp host/manager in a golf cart soon arrived. He was a very friendly and helpful gentleman; in fact all of the staff that we encountered on the phone and at the campground were very pleasant and informative. The indicated that, if we wanted to get DirecTV satellite that the outside spots along the road would be our best bet. He recommended a vacant site to us, which turned out to be a perfect site where we had a view of the sky for our portable dish. This also gave us a view of the river so that we could watch the barges. We had very good Verizon voice and data.

The sites were very clean with cleaned fire pits and the grills were even scrubbed. Even though this is a TVA site, it is managed by a private company. Good job.

There was a big negative. There is a paper pulp mill just across the river from the campground, operating 24/7, that contributes a background noise and significant unpleasant smell! During our three days here we tolerated it, but would not likely want to spend weeks at a time here. We camped at Pickwick Dam TVA Campground in a Motorhome.

David Crockett State Park, Lawrenceburg, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

There are two campgrounds in this park. Campground 1 was closed during our visit. We stayed in Campground 2, which is about a mile into the park. The sites are heavily tree covered. We were lucky to find a very small hole in the cover for our portable dish to get satellite for DirectTV. The most notable thing about the campground is that almost all of the sites are very sloped. We were fortunate to get a site where we were able to level. Many RVs were not able to level in their sites. The sites are also narrow with crumbling asphalt pavement. There is decent spacing between sites, but no vegetation for visual privacy. The campground was full on the weekend, but it was pretty calm and quiet at night. Strange, even though it showed two to three bar Verizon, the speed for data was very, very slow. It came up a bit with our booster and outside antenna. The dump station is very strange; you will be blocking the one lane of the entrance road as you dump. There is also no place to hookup as you leave. We are not for sure why others rate this campground so highly. We stayed at this campground because of its proximity to the Natchez Trace; we would likely pass it by next time if passing through. We camped at David Crockett State Park in a Motorhome.

Natchez Trace Parkway / Meriwether Lewis Campground, Hohenwald, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:      

This National Park Service campground is at mile 385.9 on the Natchez Trace Parkway. A previous reviewer noted a detour on the Parkway north of this campground; we encountered no such detour, only beautiful roads. This is a shaded, well-treed campground, so no satellite for DirecTV was possible. We had very weak Verizon signal; with our booster and outside antenna we could get voice and slow data. I would not call this a big-rig campground as the internal roads and sites are fairly narrow. The internal roads and sites are paved. Some of the sites are fairly level, but others have quite a bit of slope. The sites are well separated but there is little vegetation for visual privacy. Generators can, and were, run anytime between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. There are no hookups and there is no dump station, but there is a water spigot available for filling fresh water tanks. There was a site with a trailer for a camp host, but there was never anyone present. In fact, we saw no official presence at all during our four day visit. Most people seemed to stay one or two nights, but one site was taken by a long-term camper. As noted, the campground is free and, although there is a 14-day limit, no one was around to enforce that limit. We enjoyed our stay at this lovely campground and would stay again if in the area. We camped at Natchez Trace Parkway / Meriwether Lewis Campground in a Motorhome.

Cedar Creek COE, Mt Juliet, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Depending on your direction of approach, plan on traveling several miles on curvy, hilly, narrow roads to reach this campground. Your view of this campground is going to depend heavily on what site you have. The sites along the water are well-separated with nice views. Most other sites, not so much. Other than the water sites, the campsites are arranged in circles. We had two different sites since we were unable to secure one site for our entire week stay. Both sites were very crowded with views of many, many other RVs. It was not a good feeling with our table close to the table in the loop behind us. The sites have a thin gravel coating that, when it rains, become a real slimy mess. Our grill had the bottom burned out and our old wooden picnic table was falling apart. We were able to get satellite for DirecTV and Verizon signal for voice and data was strong. It was very quiet there at night as the recreation area is on a dead-end road. They shut the gate at 10, but it is not locked so you can get in and out. This was an acceptable place to stay to visit Nashville and the price is certainly right considering the cost of commercial RV parks in the area. We camped at Cedar Creek COE in a Motorhome.

Hurricane Creek COE, Eddyville, Kentucky

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

The rate reflects a 50% Federal Senior Pass discount. Our experience at this campground was not as positive as that of prior reviewers. Never having visited the area before, we were not fully aware that this campground is quite a ways away from most of the Land Between the Lakes activities, nor had we fully appreciated how narrow, winding, and hilly the roads would be. Depending on your direction of approach to the campground you will be driving on more than 10 miles of very narrow roads with many 35 mph curves. It also means about a 30 to 40 minute drive to get to the main road in LBL. The campground does have a pretty setting, but it was very busy on the weekends during our visit. You will need reservations, which we had. However, by the time we made our reservations, the prime sites were taken, so we settled for site 2, near the entrance. It turned out to be very, very close to sites 1 and 3, and on the weekend these sites were both occupied. Site 1 fire ring was about 8 feet from our rig! The folks in sites 1 and 3 were friends, so were continually walking across our site. Most of the campers seem to be locals that also bring out their golf cart and, someway, circumvent the two week stay limit. One gentleman was happy to share his music with the entire campground. Since our site had no trees, we were able to get satellite for DirecTV and, Verizon signal was very strong for voice and data. The sites are gravel and most seemed to be fairly level. Our site was muddy during our visit. This COE site is not nearly as nice as other COE campgrounds where we have stayed. Your experience may vary, particularly if you visit during the week and are able to snag a premium site. We would not return to this campground if visiting the area again. We camped at Hurricane Creek COE in a Motorhome.
