A nice quiet campground with full hookups and Wi-Fi . Wi-Fi was so so during our 3 day stay, could only access it at limited times. Sites here have concrete pads. There is a limited number of 50 amp sites. Electric and sewer are in the correct location. Water is shared by 4 sites, so extra hoses are needed. TV via batwing was very good, Verizon cell and broadband also very good. Overall a nice place to spend some time.

This Passport America park is located on M-65 in Twining. The pull thru's are limited due to the placement of trees. The grass sites are very 'lumpy' and it took awhile to get into a position before we were able to put down our jacks. It was very quiet here and we selected it because other area parks were filled for the mid-July weekend. Overall it was OK here, but not a destination park. There are only two 50 amps sites, pedestal 1 & 2 and 3 & 4 both have a 50 amp outlet and a 30 amp outlet. I would be leery of coming in after or during heavy rains as the grass pads seemed soft underneath. TV via bat wing was good and Verizon cell and broadband very good.

Passport America rate. As reviewed before, this is a dated mobile home / trailer park with RV sites. Lots of older units, so it is not the best looking place we been too. Interior roads are on the poor side, but are hard packed gravel. After a day of rain during our stay, I could not see where one could get stuck. We found people here to be friendly and helpful. We were in a nice level roomy grass pull-through site with 50 amp electric and water with a picnic table and fire ring. The electric looks like it has been updated at some point as it was a newer style pedestal. The Wi-Fi was very good during our stay. TV via batwing was good with a limited number of stations. We enjoyed our stay and would come again.

We stayed in the main camp area that runs along 11th street. This area has two rows of electric posts. Each post serves two sites for a total of four rows of campsites. Each site also has two 30 amp outlets available. Most sites work as pull thrus, but many sites have trees in unlikely locations (right in the middle of what should be the pad). We made the mistake of setting up in the row farthest from 11th street thinking it would be the quietest. That row has a gravel road running in front of it and there was a lot more traffic than you would expect with nothing happening at the fairgrounds. That raised lots of dust forcing us to keep windows closed all the time. We would have been better off in a row closer to the main road.

Hookups are 30 amp electric and water only. Pit toilet and no showers. At $20 a night, the value is off quite a bit. However, if you are self contained the location is very good. Sites are mostly level and grass. Big rigs might want to avoid the first gravel road as the trees have grown in quite a bit since our last stay.

Overall, this is a very nice RV Resort. All sites have double wide concrete pads and are nicely landscaped. All sites have 50 amp full hookups, with WiFi and cable. The cable was upgraded just after we arrived and carries appx. 30 basic cable stations. The sites are either back in sites, or pull in sites. They have a large clubhouse with an exercise room, pool room, sitting area, book swap, card room, etc. TV via bat wing was fair, Verizon cell and broadband both very good. One of the few draw backs is the laundry room, only 2 washers and 2 dryers. They do not allow any type of cloths lines here. Our rate based on an early season monthly special on the north sites only. These sites back up to a busy US-31 and at times it seemed that the traffic was inside the park. The monthly special needed to be completed by June 20th, so we had some real cold days during our stay.

Rates are $24 for water and electric, $26 with sewer. All sites are grass back-ins with 30 amp electric only. Each electric post serves 4 sites, 2 - 30 amp outlets on each side of the post. The water hookup also serves 4 sites. So the water and electric connections are on the wrong side for about half of the sites here. Extra hoses and power cords could be needed. Some sites are level and others will require a lot of blocks to level. The campground here is part of a recreation complex and close enough to walk to town. The complex also has a beach, playground, pavilion, tennis courts, etc. So this would be a good place for people with kids. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. Wi-Fi was mostly good, but it did drop out for one of our two days here. TV via batwing was also pretty good.

Very good value with Golden Age pass. This COE park is just off of I-57 and very easy to get to and there is a lot to see and do in the area. You drive past the golf course pro shop to get to the campground. I am surprised that it has only been reviewed once before. But as mentioned in that review the sites are not level, most are sloped front to back and some of the slopes are severe. All sites are paved and most are very long. We came in with a list of available sites during the week in mid-May and found a fairly level site. But two of our rear tires still wanted to come off the ground; we did get level with a bit of maneuvering. Water is also available at the exit end of the dump station. Verizon voice and broadband both very good. TV via batwing was fair, ABC was strong, but both NBC and CBS would fade out during the day.

Great value with Golden Age pass. This is one of the nicest COE parks that we have been to. Every site here can be considered level and are paved. I did not see one site that would not work for a MH, although sites did vary in size. Rates vary with water front and water view sites being $2 more than the interior sites. Also in the off season the rates go down. Interior roads were all nicely paved and smooth, we looped thru the entire campground with our toad attached to pick a site. We ended up with a large lake front site, #6. TV via batwing was good, but with a limited number of networks. Verizon cell was good, broadband was mostly good but did get spotty at times when it dropped to 3G.

Sites here are all paved, back in's with water and electric. As mentioned in an earlier review the wi-fi is useless. TV via batwing and Verizon broadband were both very good. Most sites are fairly level, but some have settled in places making them 'lumpy'. To clarify an earlier post about the new 'ramp' at the entrance, think 'loading dock'. It is a monster and if you are towing with a MH, unhook before attempting to climb up. It is appx. 3 feet high and had our dolly ramps dragging the ground. The ramp is inside the park at the entrance office, but it is a two lane road with plenty of room to unhook your toad before it. This was our third and last time at this CG. We will drive in from the north side of the lake next time we want to visit New Orleans.

Reservations are now taken as posted in an earlier review. Sites vary a lot and most of them are sloped from front to back enough to lift a MH's rear tires off the ground. These sites are mostly level and suitable for MH's: 1, 3, 4, 15, 19, 20, 21, 26, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 37, 38, 39, 41, 43, 44, 46, 47, 48, 49 and 51. Sites lengths vary and above includes the handicap sites. All sites are paved. Check details on reservation system. We had a great stay with very good Verizon cell and broadband, TV via batwing was also good. This was our fourth stay here.

We were in the A loop were many sites are not level. Our rear tires needed six blocks under them and we needed to stay forward in the site to avoid the worst part of the slope. The site, 37, was right where the dump station exits. Also, in order to dump we needed to loop back around, that turn is very tight. But we had good beach access, Verizon cell and broadband both excellent and good TV via batwing.

Daily rate is $27 after taxes with Passport America. Full hookups with a good cable lineup and wi-fi that was mostly good, it did get slow at times. Mexico Beach remains one of our favorite stopping spots along the panhandle. We had a nice wide back in site in the second loop coming in. Very hard to get through on the phone, we left a message and ended up just coming in.

One of the better state campgrounds in FL. Great location, large level sites with plenty of room. Verizon cell and broadband were both good. TV via batwing was also good.

The only real downside here is the location of the dump station. As mentioned before, it is in the middle of the CG next to the bath house. A lot of people were driving to the bath house and going thru the dump station the wrong way to get there. Also, parked cars made getting into the dump station tight. Our site just had new stone put down and it was large and sharp edged. Walking on it hurt the feet.
