We paid the Passport America rate of $25 for a 50 amp FHU level back in site. Site was a gravel site heavily shaded with large pine and hardwood trees. So we had lots of stuff dropping onto the RV during our 6 night stay. Overall this is a very nice campground in the woods. But they do call this "Camping in the Pines". As it was late spring, we had lots of sap on both our 1 year old MH and toad. They do have some sites that are not under pines. If we return, we will definitively ask for one. They have a wifi hotspot, but very limited hours during our stay so we never used it. OTA TV was barely fair with only ION and PBS stations. Verizon cell and broadband both very good.

We paid the RI non-resident fee of $35 and $25 per night plus the $9 reservation fee (3 times). This SP has had some major improvements made a couple of years ago. The utilities in Areas 1 and 2 were upgraded with sewer being added to Area 2. These two areas are $35 per night. Area 4 is water and electric only and remains fairly rustic, but has some nice large private sites. These sites are $25 per night. Area 3 is canvas only for tenters and small popup units. Areas 2, 3 & 4 have bath houses, Area 1 does not. Sites vary in both size and levelness at this SP. Also some sites have hedges that may be very close to the camping pad which may create an issue with slide outs. Overall one of the nicer SP's we have stayed in. Outstanding location and very close to the Block Island ferry. This CG gets fully booked during the summer months as most people make their resevation months in advance. We booked 5 months early and were only able to get 4 nights in Area 1, then 4 nights in Area 4 and then only 2 more nights in Area 1. OTA TV varied, so so in our first site in Area 1 next to the old fort. It was much better in Area 4. Verizon cell and broadband both very good.

One change since our last review here is that the sites are now marked at the sides. So you can setup anywhere between the markers as long as you do not go past them. The old rule was to center your camping unit on the rock with the site number on it. This created problems when a MH was pulled in next to a 5th / trailer that was backed in. You would be door to door and very close. The markers allow the units to create some separation. But it can still be really tight here.

Nighly rate is $45, but they charged an extra $10 for the Memorial Holiday weekend. This is a older campground with dated facilities. But the electric, water, and sewer were adequate. The campground has two sections, one to the right of the entrance road and the other to the left. The sites to the right are mostly seasonal and permanents. The roads here are real rough with large boulder tops that you drive over. There are also a lot of tree limbs to watch out for. The left side of the campground looked to be the better option. Most of the sites there were in a large field. Sites in both sections were mostly level, call them lumpy. But we had no problem leveling after taking time to position our MH. They have WiFi, but we were unable to connect to it from our site. OTA TV and Verizon cell were both good here.

Date of Stay:

We paid the senior rate for our mid-week stay just before Memorial Day. It was very quiet and we had empty sites on both sides of us for our 3 day stay. Electric was very good, water pressure a bit low so we just used our pump. We had a lot of rain while we were there, so we did not sit outside or do any hiking. OTA TV was poor, at night we picked up ION and another PBS type station. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. Overall a nice quiet CG.

We paid the senior rate of $22 for a 50 amp back in with water. Sites are gravel, fairly level, and are angled out in random order. Some angle one way and others the opposite way. Narrow interior roads make for a possible hard time to get setup. We had no OTA TV or cell reception here. Not a big rig friendly place, but doable for a 40 footer. There is a small tear drop shaped loop within a much larger loop. This small loop has a couple of nice sites and also the dump station. We did not use the dump station. It is hard to access the dump station from many of the sites in the small loop because of its tear drop shape.

We paid the cash rate of $26 for a 30 amp pull thru with water. Sites are gravel, level, they are long but close together. They have very nice grass between sites. We came in for a night or two and spent three. They have a wi-fi hotspot in a common room which has the laundry, book swap and some games. OTA TV and cell reception were both very good. Overall it was a nice stay and we would stop again. It is easy access to both US-6 and I-75, but quiet at night.

Date of Stay:

Two different areas with hookups. We were in the 'across the road on the hill' area. We had lots of empty sites on both sides of us. This area only had 30 amp outlets with both water and sewer. The police referred to in an earlier post have a 'mobile booking unit' that they bring here. So we did see lots of activity which my wife enjoyed watching. Plus, it made the area very secure. Nothing fancy but a great base for visiting the city.

We paid the Passport America rate of $16.50 a night for our two night stay. This is not an RV Resort and does not claim to be one, the hookups were good and sites were fairly level. We had no problem getting level, we did put blocks under the rear jacks, front jacks were on gravel. Hard packed gravel roads are bumpy, but no problems at slow speeds. We pulled thru an empty site and into a nice large grass / gravel site with a concrete patio and picnic table. WiFi signal was strong, but the bandwidth was pretty much maxed out during our stay. Usable, but not the best that we have had. Very friendly and helpful check in and we were led to our site. There is no cable here, they do have an antenna feed to the sites that works somewhat like cable. We picked up several networks and a weather station which was important as we fled the FL east coast when Hurricane Matthew was passing by. Very quiet at night. Anglers makes a very nice base for visiting Cedar Key. Overall we had a very nice stay and would not hesitate to return.

This was our 5th stay here and Mexico Beach remains one of our favorite places to stop in FL. The town still gets a solid 1o, but Rustic Sands is a bit off rating wise. The cable was off, we did get CBS and NBC plus a couple of PBS style stations OTA. The electric and sewer connections were upgraded a few years back, water and wifi were both good. But things are getting dated here and in dire need of upgrades and cleaning. The laundry room looks like it had not been cleaned for months. So we did not use them. But the place still is the better option in town.

Date of Stay:

We paid the Passport America rate of $22 for one night. That makes it a good value, but no way we would pay $44 for a second night. This place makes for a decent pit stop heading south. Cable lineup was pretty good, nothing special just the basic stations you get everywhere. We had a site in the first row facing US-231. As it was still hot, the AC's kept the highway noise down. But it could be an issue at certain times. The hookups were good and somewhat to the rear of the site. But we had no problems reaching them. The office help during check in was very good. Nice friendly office people here. We would stay again.

We paid the Passport America rate of $38.52 for 2 nights. Value and location are both very good. This is a large RV park and the site setup is not the best. Most of the 50 amp FHU sites are double ended pull thru sites and 4 sites share 1 electric / water shore connection. So they will be somewhat behind the RV. In the 50 amp area, all outlets are 50 amp outlets. The sewer for all 4 sites is on the correct side of the site. But the electric / water hookups will be on the wrong side for 2 of the 4 sites. PLUS, these sites will not have much of a curbside, just the neighbors sewer hose and shore connections. Pass the Grey Poupon please. The sites with the utilities on the correct side have a very large curbside and are very nice sites. Especially if the near site is empty. We had about 80' of grass on the curbside and less than 10' on the hookup side. If you are towing and do not want to unhook, you will need very long water hoses and power cords. OTA TV was fair, ABC and Fox were the only networks. The wifi was very good during our stay.

Our site was one of the nicest that we have ever had anywhere. We were in the small loop next to the outlet that has sites 12 thru 20. These sites are all on concrete pads and have 50 amp outlets. Our pad was at least 80 feet deep and double wide. The fire ring was integrated into the pad. You could park an 18 wheeler on the site. There is no bathhouse in this loop, but one is available nearby in the large parking lot. Verizon cell, broadband and OTA TV were very good. This loop has some of the nicest sites that we have seen at a COE CG.

CASH only at this Omaha City run CG. Tough call on rating this place. It was a dust bowl the day we arrived. Our toad had a layer of dust so thick we could not see out of the windows. I had to dump a bucket of water on the windshield before unhooking it. That was just from the drive in and locating a site. Lots of fast moving traffic within the CG keeps it dusty. After an afternoon of rain, things got much better. Sites are either RV sites or tent sites. The RV sites have red topped number posts, the white topped posts are tent sites. Sites vary from level to very sloped, the closer to the water the more level they are. These water sites come with plenty of geese droppings included. The site we had was filthy and the grass around it was long overdue for mowing. That was true of most of the sites. I also checked the men's bathhouse and it was pretty disgusting. Glad we did not need to use them. Being a FCFS CG, people start coming in during the week to pick their site. We came in on a Thursday afternoon and lots of sites had trailers on them that had been left earlier in the day. 30 amp electric was good for our four day stay. Water is available on the way in at the dump station and in various locations within the CG loops. The price and location here add to the value. The locals seem happy with things as they are. It is a nice cheap CG close to the city. But they really do need someone here to keep an eye on things. There is no excuse for people to come in and leaving the sites in such a mess. Hundreds of cigarette butt's littered the ground, beer bottle caps, etc. But the place works ok for a pit stop along I-80 in the Omaha area.

We paid the Passport rate of $18 for a 50 amp FHU site. We agree with the review that recommends coming down Colorado and parking on the street, it makes getting into the site easier. All hookups worked great. We did several loads of laundry while here and were happy with the machines on the south side of the bath house. Our Verizon broadband was good. The TV is a funny setup, but we did get stations when we were expecting nothing over the air. Overall a very good value and a nice stopping point off of I-70.
