Sea Rim State Park, Sabine Pass, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this park. However, our experience was, perhaps, a bit unique. It was very cold, and often rainy, so we had no issue with mosquitoes. It was also very quiet as it was during the week and almost everyone was huddled inside much of the time. The lady ranger that checked us in was very pleasant. The sites are fairly well spaced but with any vegetation for visual separation. They are adequate size and level sites. The pull-through sites 9 - 13 are definitely the superior sites with great, if somewhat distant, views of the Gulf. The toilets are vault, but that was not a problem for us as we are fully self-contained and rarely use park facilities. Yes, the dump station is a ways down the main road, but again not a problem as we simply stopped by on the way out. Much to our surprise, as this is a long ways from major cities, we had good Verizon voice and data. DirecTV satellite was not an issue since there is no tall vegetation. It was nice and dark at night, which we love. We would certainly stay here again. We camped at Sea Rim State Park in a Motorhome.

Village Creek State Park, Lumberton, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

This was a very quiet park during our New Year's visit. There were only 6 or so other campers. Except for the camping area, the park was still closed because of hurricane damage, probably contributing to the quiet and calm. The gate was locked at 8:00 in the evening, so no drive-throughs - nice. The sites are fairly well spaced with some vegetation, which contributed to the visual separation. Some sites have significant slope, so would likely require some leveling blocks. The sites are nice and long. Our site had 30 amps that was a bit weak. If we had too much electrical pull, it went down below 103 volts and our power management system would cut power. It was not a big problem, we just had to use care, but it might be an issue if the park were fuller with everyone using power. We did not pick up the park WiFi, but Verizon data was very strong. We were able to find the DirecTV satellite with our portable dish; some sites would be very difficult because of the tree cover. It was not a big issue for us, since it was cold and we were tightly shut up, but there is a paper mill somewhere around that we could smell at times - not a pleasant smell. It was nice and dark at night, except for a very bright light at the dump station. We did not use the bathroom facilities, but checked them out and they looked to be in good shape. We would stay at this park again if in the area, but would not consider it a destination park. We camped at Village Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

Since most of the State Park was closed, we did not get to try any of the trails. Big Thicket National Preserve is about 30 minutes away with some wonderful hiking trails. There is a Wal-Mart about 10 minutes from the park. Beaumont is about 30 minutes away with full shopping and restaurants.

Palmetto Island State Park, Abbeville, Louisiana

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

What a lovely park! The sites are well spaced and have vegetation between for visual separation. Everything was very clean. The bathrooms were spotless and kept that way by amazing, vigilant volunteer camp hosts. There are free laundry facilities that were also spotless thanks to the volunteers. When we were there it was very calm and quiet. However, fair warning, according to the staff, on many weekends the park turns into party central with the local folks. It can be late nights with lots of noise. According to the staff, the sites on the cul-de-sac around 66 are the biggest party sites. We were there on Christmas weekend and it was almost empty. There are roadways and trails for biking. Also, the roads just outside the park are calm enough to be good for biking. Do be wary for loose-roaming dogs. The birding is great if you are into that. There is park WiFi that sometimes worked, very slowly, so don't depend on it. We were able to get DirecTV satellite with our portable dish strategically placed, some sites would have more of a problem. We had very good Verizon voice and data. We started out on site 67 but moved to site 66 since a big family with music came in next to site 67. We would definitely stay here again, but would avoid weekends. We camped at Palmetto Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake End Park Campground, Morgan City, Louisiana

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

What a strange place! We arrived without reservations, traveling through on Highway 90. The campground was only a couple of miles off of 90, on Highway LA70, so easy to get to. When you get to the sign on the highway that says the entrance is in one mile, it is actually less than half a mile away. As you turn in, you pass a trashed-out entrance booth. The office where you check in, is actually to your right. The lady there was nice enough and gave us a choice of about five sites right behind the office. We looked at those to find that the nicer sites are along the lake. When we asked, she told us there were some available, but only until the weekend. Interesting, since we told her we only wanted to stay for one night. We finally got a site on a spit, right on the lake. We decided to pull in forward, since it would give us views out the front window and the utilities, at the front of the site, would actually be in a better location. When we went back up to pay, we were told that it was forbidden to pull in forward! Really? We asked for an explanation, and were basically told that was the rule, so we backed in with no view! Our site had a lot of trash and around 100 or so cigarettes butts scattered around. There were signs saying campers only but many locals drove through very fast. One young man in a park cart spent about an hour talking with his buddy, possibly the reason there was a lot of trash around. It is noisy from Highway 70. It smelled from the lake. Having said all of this, it was an OK place for an overnight stop. This will be our one and only visit to this park. We camped at Lake End Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Grand Isle State Park, Grand Isle, Louisiana

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Keep in mind that it is a long ways out there. Also, keep in mind that there are some very slow speed limits and the little towns make a lot of revenue by strictly enforcing those limits. Finally, to get to the island, you will cross a bridge with a toll. For our motorhome towing a car, the toll was $9.25. (Free returning.) If you keep that in mind, it is actually a very pleasant and interesting drive down. The campground is comprised of three rows of pull-through sites in a row, a pleasant setting but not spectacular. Since there is no vegetation, there is no visual separation for privacy. None of the sites have actual views of the gulf. No trees, so getting DirecTV satellite is easy. Verizon data and voice signal were very strong. Our interaction with staff/volunteers was 50/50, some really nice, helpful and some not very interested. We camped at Grand Isle State Park in a Motorhome.

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.

Trace State Park, Belden, Mississippi

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $18.00
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.
