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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

Rate paid is FL senior rate. Overall this park is in a great location, especially so for fishing and other water activities. The CG is an older one with sites tending to be on the small side and most have some grade to them with 30 amp service and water. But there are a few that will work for larger rigs. Water hookup may require extra hoses. TV via batwing and Verizon cell and broadband were both good.

We will avoid this place in the future. The day we left my wife's comment was that we needed to add this place to the list of do not return places. We last came here three years earlier where we gave it an 8 for value, nothing has been done since. No attempts to improve anything, drainage remains a MAJOR issue. Yes it is the low country, but our site was completely under water after an afternoon of rain. Two inches at our door, up to 5 - 6 inches elsewhere in the site. Grass had not been mowed in at least weeks, if not months. Over 12 inches tall in many places. The electric was out when we arrived. We called and someone promptly came and reset the main breaker. I mentioned that the trees on the exit road needed trimming. He said he would take care of it, but two days later nothing was done. So if you are in the water and electric-only sites, expect to have the side of your rig raked by branches as you exit. Rate paid was Passport America, but the surcharge for 30 amp electric is $5 per day, $3 more if you want 50 amp and another $3 for sewer. This place is not honoring the Passport America discount. They just want to be in the PA directory. The next time we are in the area we will find another place to stay.

Park still gets a 10 for location. But during July and August there simply are too many vehicles in it. Getting set up can be a real challenge. One big problem is that the Department of Environmental Management is now in an office, so after the parking vendor leaves at 5:00 pm the gate booth is unmanned. So some folks with sites have all kinds of family and friends coming in to visit. This park is much better just before and after the peak summer season.

Rate is for the back area, 30 amp electric only. Location and people running the park are very nice. TV via batwing, and Verizon broadband. The water fill was across from dump station and not at it. Sites are all grass back-ins on a grade and fairly small but acceptable given the location. We could not get level, best bet is to park so the front tires can come off the ground. The road into the back is very narrow, one vehicle at a time. Cars can get out of the way, but we got stuck trying to leave as a 5th wheel was coming in early. He had to back up so we could get out. Not a place we are likely to come back to, but would under the right conditions.

Group rate for a 30 amp grass back-in site. Cable was real bad when we first hooked up, but the problem had already been reported and was quickly resolved. The earlier 'not level' comment is misleading. All sites are basically level, but some are 'lumpy'. You simply need to position your rig properly. The sites are large enough for this and we had no problems leveling. Lots of kids here on the weekend.

Date of Stay:

We had a reservation for area 4, but the site had too much grade and we could not level. We were able to move into area 2 where there was 1 site that worked for us. Sites really vary as far as being level. The site descriptions are not the best. You really need to know the sites here. As reviewed, this is a somewhat dated park, but the location is great. Verizon broadband and TV via bat wing were both good.

Date of Stay:

Our second stay at this nice quiet park. We were in early with the volunteers who clean the campground before the official opening. There have been some improvements since our last stay. The only real downfall here are the bath house which could use an upgrade. But being full time we use our own. TV via batwing is fair, Verizon cell and broadband very good.

Paid the Good Sam rate of $29.70 for a 10% discount off the normal $33 nightly rate. Park is close to I-81 but not too close. It is just after the long northbound climb on I-81. There are grades, but we had no problems in our 36' wide body towing. I would not recommend anything longer than 39' or towing a large trailer. As reviewed, the sites are all cut in to the side hill; they did a pretty good job and sites are fairly level. Good solid gravel base topped with 3/4" stone so I can see where it could be dusty at times. It was OK during our stay. We had site 31 a 30 amp full hookup site, and we were able to leave our toad hooked up on a tow dolly. TV via batwing was fair, we picked up 6 stations including ABC and CBS. Verizon cell and broadband were both very good.

Rate is based on Passport America but certainly not half price. The discount is $16.25 off a regular site which makes it about half price off of a premium site which you do not get. $1 surcharge for credit cards. That would be OK except the WiFi was not usable, strong signal but 'no internet access'. I even tried at 5:30 am the next day. Cable also was worthless. We used our antenna instead as the cable did not have NBC (or anything else that was worth watching). If you need to use the laundry then it is a good stop. But we will probably save our $22 and use a rest area or Walmart next time. Overall it is a nice place, but they need to keep things working better.

Date of Stay:

Rate includes $5 Passport America discount. They game the system here. They post a nightly rate of $50, but then $30 a night for just about everyone, AAA, Good Sam, Military, Seniors, etc. So the real rate is really $30. But it is a good location for visiting Savannah so it is not a bad value. Good utilities and very strong usable WiFi which was a plus. Could use a little TLC on the grounds as it is a bit rough around the edges here.

Date of Stay:

Rate based on a winter stay. This place remains a Daytona best bet for an RV site. They are having problems with the WiFi though. But Verizon broadband was very good. Overall a great place to spend some time.

Date of Stay:

Paid group rate for a FHU, somewhat level, grass site. Site was very large and mostly level, but the sites do have uneven spots. But we had no problem leveling. Very nice Rally facilities. It is a common area so you get folks walking in on your group. Cable lineup is 11 channels. WiFi is $5 a day, $10 for 3 days, $15 per week, etc. We did not use it as our Verizon broadband was very good. The big downside here is the full time people in the park models that line this part of the park. To them, the grass sites is the dog walk and they walk (and drive golf carts) right thru occupied sites. Food was fair at best at the on site Eagles Nest.

Date of Stay:

Paid FL Senior rate which made for a great value. We had a nice big level 50 amp FHU site. The sites in this section are all pea stone. We had no trouble with the check in process. We saw camp hosts treating the ant mounds. I wish more places would do the same. TV via batwing was very good. Verizon cell and broadband were also very good. Overall we had a great stay.
