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.

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.

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.
