Salt Lake City KOA, Salt Lake City, Utah

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $74.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 4 nights in July 2018 in a "Deluxe Patio Site". The rate was $81.99/night less 10% KOA Value Kard plus 6.85% sales tax plus 6.05% Tourism Transient Room Tax. Total paid was $295.16 or $83.32 avg per night. Always enjoy the KOA website to make reservations. We took the only site available that could accommodate our size. The small patio and patio furniture was nice, but the term "deluxe" is a stretch. If approaching from West, you can turn left on "1460 WEST". Look for Nico's restaurant on left corner. Check-in was efficient and we were guided to our site. Site was strewn with litter upon arrival including cigarette butts, plastic bottle cap, glass bottle cap, tie wrap, duct tape and misc litter. That was just on our passenger side. Ironically, our fire ring was clean as a whistle. I noticed other trash through out the park. There are trees between sites which provide welcome shade. We couldn't get a satellite signal but I suspect it's hit or miss depending on where you dish is mounted and where your tree happens to be. Utilities conveniently placed and worked well. We had three A/Cs going and power was fine. CG is quiet at night. I could hear a train whistle faintly but not enough to be disturbing. Single stream recycling. Rules are not enforced although it didn't create an issue during our stay. Folks were in the pool/hot tub area well after 10pm. Rules state no pet fences and we saw plenty of them. Trees on interior roads need to be trimmed for taller rigs. The CG is in a dicey area. A half mile down North Temple Street is a druggie/vagrant hang out. Next door to KOA is an abandoned motel with a pool half filled with debris (fenced). We noticed variations of this all over the city including downtown and outside the ballpark. It's totally disgusting. Suggest using common sense - don't go out alone and be aware of your surroundings. If we return to this area (which I hope we never do), we would consider all options first but would stay here again. We camped at Salt Lake City KOA in a Motorhome.

The TRAX railway in front of the CG is nice and seemed safe ($5/person for r/t ticket). Visit the State Captiol Building and take a free tour M-F every hour on the hour. Enjoy a Bee's baseball game - family friendly venue with nice view of mountains. If using the Jordan River Trail walking/biking path behind the CG, suggest women not go alone day or night. The trail itself is great.

Fireside Resort - Jackson Hole Campground, Wilson, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $135.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 7 nights in July 2018 in a "Premium Pull Through" site. We paid $135/night plus 2% Lodging Tax plus 4% State Tax plus 2% Teton Tax plus 7% Resort Fee. Total paid was $1,086.75 or $155.25 avg per night. If you haven't already gathered, Jackson is very popular and the entire area is expensive in every way. There are not many choices for big rigs and full hookups especially if you want to be anywhere near town. This park is a little tight to maneuver in and the sites are by no means spacious. The utilities were well positioned and worked perfectly. Wifi was great during the day but slow in the evening. We had clear sky for DirecTV. We loved this area and enjoyed our time here. The park isn't perfect and the price is painful but it's where we wanted to be and it delivered what it promised. If in the area, I would be willing to stay again. Here are a few navigating tips. 1. If you are coming from the East (we drove from Cody through Yellowstone & Grand Teton), stay on Highway 191. Do NOT take Moose Wilson Road as a shortcut ... as our GPS instructed). Moose Wilson Road has a sign right away saying it is not for trucks/RVs. Fortunately there was an area immediately where we could turn off. We had to unhook our toad and drive separately (back on 191) the remaining 17 miles to the CG. Fortunately no harm/no foul. You will have to drive through downtown Jackson but it's do-able. 2. Our GPS guided us right to the entrance of the CG. When headed north on Moose Wilson Road, look for the "Calico Bar & Restaurant" sign on the right. Slow way down and be prepared to turn hard right into a gravel road narrow enough to almost be a one lane road. You'll drive past a row of nifty modern wood cabins, under an archway and then you'll see the office/check-in area. 3. If heading West when leaving, do NOT take the 22. It is a mountain pass with a 10% grade. We were advised to take 191 to Hoback then 89 to 26 to Idaho Falls (beautiful scenery) to catch the I-15. We camped at Fireside Resort - Jackson Hole Campground in a Motorhome.

Persephone Bakery in downtown Jackson has the most amazing cinnamon rolls. Cafe Genevieve was so-so but their candied bacon appetizer was interesting and worth a try. Enjoy a drink while saddled up (literally sitting in a saddle) at the Million Dollar Cowboy Bar. We loved the walking/biking path. You can catch it in front of the CG and go anywhere on it. Rent a canoe at beautiful Lake Jenny. The Ariel Tram is ridiculously expensive but a must do if visiting the area. The view is spectacular.

Ponderosa Campground, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 7 nights in July 2018. Rate is $46/night or $42 w/Good Sam. Add 9% tax and our total was $320.46 or $45.78 avg nightly cost. Reservation was made online via a form on their website during the Winter when the park was closed. Received a prompt and cheerful email confirmation. They do not accept credit cards so had to snail mail a paper check for $100 deposit. The balance was paid at check-in also with a paper check. It's a busy/crowded place with 4th of July week being their busiest time period (plan ahead!). Check in was quick and efficient. Staff is very friendly. We unhooked toad in entrance area but be fast because there may be campers waiting behind you. Interior roads are tight for a big rig (43') but manageable. We were in site #98 which had odd hookup placement with power on the passenger side sharing the post with the neighbor. Sewer is in the very back of the site. Our sewer hose barely reached. All hookups worked perfectly. It was hot and we ran 3 A/Cs with no issues. The site was generally level. We had clear sky for DirecTV signal. Verizon cell and Mifi worked OK but not great. Did not try the CG wifi. Interior roads are mostly dirt with some gravel which can get dusty when it's windy. They have planted new sod here and there between sites which is nice. However it needs to be watered regularly (understandably) so staff moved sprinklers around our site sometimes watering our rig. There's not much that can be done other than to wipe down your rig as quickly as you can to avoid spotting. Funny - their rules don't allow washing of any vehicle but we ended up "washing" it after all! We were able to walk to the museum and downtown area for restaurants, shopping, trolley tour, shoot out and 4th of July parade. While I can't say I loved the CG, I feel it's the best location for visiting Cody. I would look at all options first but would definitely consider staying here again if in the area. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There is a bus which will pick up at the CG to take you to the rodeo ($5 per person round trip). One hour trolley combo ticket w/ museum provides a small savings. Trolley gives overview and historical perspective of Cody. Museum allows you to come/go for two consecutive days. If you have time, you'll need a good part of each day. We especially enjoyed the free docent tours as well as the chuck wagon demonstration (with samples!). The Irma Hotel buffet was so-so and not worth $27/person.

Deer Park Campground, Buffalo, Wyoming

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for 2 nights in July 2018. We paid $44.66/night less 10% Good Sam discount plus 7% tax = $43.01/night. We were trying to get in with just a few days notice. The website didn't show availability so we called and got lucky! And - we were lucky indeed. This is a lovely CG. It's easy on/off the highway. Check in was quick and efficient. Office staff and maintenance staff were very friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our pull-through site which had nice shade trees but still plenty of space for our big rig and toad. Hookups were conveniently positioned and worked perfectly. We couldn't get satellite in our site but I think it's luck of the draw depending on where your dish is mounted and where the trees happen to be. If our dish was forward instead of back, I think we would have gotten it. The entire property is clean and impeccably maintained. It's mostly hard packed dirt with some gravel on the interior roads and on the sites. There is grass in between sites. If sitting outside during the day, you can hear some highway noise but it's not bothersome. It quiets down nicely at night. There are no trains. The office has a small store with basic RV supplies, food items and ice ($2.00 for cubes or $2.50 for block). There is recycling available for plastic and aluminum. The pool was small but looked clean. There is an ice cream social each evening for $2. Bring your own bowl and spoon and make new friends. We enjoyed our short stay and would love to return and stay longer next time. We camped at Deer Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Downtown Buffalo is very cute. We enjoyed a nice meal at Busy Bee Cafe and checked out the historic Occidental Hotel (great photo display in the hallway). Definitely stop at the Visitor Information Center (on Hwy 16 between the RV park and I-90). It has a wonderful staff with a wealth of knowledge.

Cam-Plex Multi Event Facilities (For Events Use Only), Gillette, Wyoming

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in Boxelder RV Park for 8 nights in June 2018 with the Newmar International Rally. We had 50 amp, water and sewer. Utilities were conveniently located and worked well. It was hot and all of us were running A/Cs so kudos for good power! Rigs were crammed in like sardines with toads parked partially in the road due to lack of space. It is muddy and messy when it rains. Verizon cell and mifi signals were so-so. Newmar provided wifi which never worked anywhere on the entire property. We had clear sky for satellite signal. There was a tornado warning and we had to evacuate to the locker rooms inside the Cam-Plex. The good news is that they have an excellent safe place with ample room. The bad news is they don't have a siren system (which they should because severe weather is commonplace) so a woman in a golf cart drove through the CG telling everyone to evacuate (not ideal - it wasn't safe for her and took time for her to cover the whole campground). Fortunately it all turned out OK but it was scary. My pet peeve with this facility has to do with walking to/from the CG/Cam-Plex. This is something you might do 2-4 times per day. Golf carts raced on the sidewalk on Boxelder Street expecting pedestrians to get out of the way. Furthermore there is no sidewalk on the entrance road between Boxelder Street and Cam-Plex so you are sharing the road with cars and golf carts. Obviously no one gave this much thought when designing the complex. Other than that, the facility served its purpose. I'm glad we went but don't plan to return any time soon. We camped at Cam-Plex Multi Event Facilities (For Events Use Only) in a Motorhome.

Fishberry Campground, Valentine, Nebraska

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 4 nights in June 2018. Rate was $35/night less 10% Good Sam plus 10.5% tax. Total paid was $139.23 or $34.81/night avg. Reservations are made by telephone. No money collected upfront but they do request a credit card #. Check-in was easy & efficient. Staff was friendly and informative. We were in pull-through #22 which was an end site. We had a small, grassy "front yard" with a gorgeous view of the rolling hills. Others have done a good job describing the CG and the proximity of the "buddy sites". We had someone next to us on the last night and we were definitely close together. Fortunately our rigs were different heights so we weren't window-to-window. Hookups were located conveniently and worked perfectly. At night it was dark and peaceful. We didn't feel there was much road noise day or night. There is a small lake (no swimming) but very pretty. Each site has a fire pit. The office sells firewood. There are horseshoes, a sandbox with toys and a half-court for basketball plus a fabulous pavilion with outdoor furniture and a fireplace. Laundry is one washer (cold water only) and one dryer on the honor system. Restrooms were very nice and absolutely spotless. Showers had a changing area with shelf and hooks. We had good Verizon cell and mifi and clear sky for satellite. CG wifi did not reach our site which we were told beforehand and had agreed to. There are just a few negatives. 1. Small bits of trash, litter and cigarette butts in our site. 2. Biting flies kept us from sitting outside. 3. CG could add some gravel to dips on interior roads. 4. CG could expand wifi to cover entire property. Overall we loved this CG and would be delighted to stay again. In my opinion, this would be a perfect place for a weekend getaway or for a whole-week of beauty and relaxation or for a family reunion. There is lots of space for kids and adults. NOTE: If you will travel 83 between Valentine and I-90, it is rough and bouncy. It's do-able. You just gotta get through it. We camped at Fishberry Campground in a Motorhome.

There's a surprising amount of things to do including Niobrara River (rafting), Niobrara Natl Wildlife Refuge and Smith Falls State Park. Cycle the Cowboy Trail. Drive your bike to town and start from there. It's sandy and gravely so a mountain bike would be best. Take water/nutrition and pay attention for possible headwinds coming back. We had a decent meal at Peppermill. Check out microbrewery, Bolo Beer Co, open Wed-Sat 4-10pm.

Haworth Park, Bellevue, Nebraska

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed 5 nights. Paid $25/night. No tax or fees. Made reservations online 100% prepaid. No check-in required if you have reserved. If you haven't, there is a little bldg at the entrance with a computer where you can reserve on the spot. We followed the main road past the CG to a big parking lot which was nearly empty during our entire stay. There we disconnected our toad. We never saw any signs identifying each loop. So we drove the toad through the loops to locate our site. The sites are well-marked - it's the loops that are not marked. During this process, the Camp Hostess zipped over in her cart, greeted us and offered to help. She was very friendly. The interior roads are paved, single lane wide and one-way only. They're tight for a big rig but do-able. With rain, there is puddling here and there. For our site (B-28 w/50amp), the power pole was located conveniently. The water was halfway between our site and the one next door (with a splitter). We needed two hoses to reach it. Water pressure was fine. Concrete pad with cracks and grass growing through but still relatively level. We didn't have a puddling problem. We had enough length for a 44' motorhome plus toad. Lots of grass and decent space between sites. Some trees here and there - nothing that would be apt to block a satellite signal and probably nothing that's going to give much shade (some sites more or less but most in full sun at all times). Bathhouse closest to Loop B was older but generally clean and functional. The women's side had 2 sinks, 3 flush toilets and 2 showers. The showers had a private changing area with bench, hook and concrete floor. The water has only one knob meaning you cannot control hot/cold. The water temp was, at times, very hot (too hot), very cold and luke warm. Be careful with kids. Wifi was OK when CG was 20% full but unusable on the weekends when CG was 75% full. Verizon cell was OK. Verizon Mifi was slow. Clear sky for satellite. Recycling for glass, aluminum and paper. We camped at Haworth Park in a Motorhome.

Old Market in downtown Omaha is charming with old brick streets, historic buildings, shops & restaurants. Recommend Strategic Air Command Museum but allow a full day. It's a 45 minute drive each way. Try to take the 11am tour. It's a big place and starting with a tour will help. Do your homework if you will attend a College World Series game. Suggest seats in the shade because it's HOT. Also they are crazy-strict with what they let you bring in. You MUST use a clear see-through bag, absolutely no food, etc.

The Campus RV Park, Independence, Missouri

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 5 nights in June 2018. The rate was $32/night less 10% Good Sam discount plus 6.5% tax. We paid $153.36 total or $30.67 avg/night. Reservations are by phone only. They do not email a confirmation. They do not collect any money upfront but did take a credit card #. We had to change our reservation twice (due to rig issues). The staff was very accommodating which we greatly appreciated. Definitely follow the directions on their website. Additionally they suggest using a different address for GPS purposes as there are multiple entrances to the park. They have a specific entrance they want you to use. Check in was fast and easy. All staff was friendly and pleasant and always working to keep CG nice and clean. Our site was back-in. Due to tree growth behind us, we parked forward in our site but utilities were still reach-able. The interior road is very wide so sticking out a bit was no problem. We had to park our toad in a parking area nearby. The tree behind us was a blackberry tree. We picked some - delicious! However we didn't want them falling on our rig. All utilities worked perfectly. It was hot and we had three A/Cs going with no issues. We had clear sky for DirecTV signal. Verizon cell and mifi were okay but not great although we were able to stream video in the evenings with our mifi. CG wifi did not reach our site. We felt safe inside the RV park even though it's not gated. There is a train close by which blows a whistle. Our site (#29) was about as far from the tracks as possible and the train didn't bother us. However, if your site is 1 - 11, you'll probably hear the train much more than we did. If you are a light sleeper, you might request a site farther away such as 12-30. As we pulled out of our site, staff was heading over to trim the tree. We enjoyed this park. If we returned to the area, we would evaluate all options but would be willing to stay here again. We camped at The Campus RV Park in a Motorhome.

Visit Truman Presidential Library/Museum and Truman Home. Home tix must be purchased at the Visitors Center located in Independence Square - NOT at the Library and NOT at the home itself. Clinton's has an old-fashioned soda fountain and delicious ice cream. Natl WWI Museum is fabulous. Ticket is good for two days. Hallmark Visitor Center. People love Gates BBQ but we did not - too vinegary and too much sauce. Suggest ordering with sauce on the side so you can control it.

Sundermeier RV Park, Saint Charles, Missouri

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $53.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 4 nights in June 2018. We had a pull-through site which was $59/night minus 10% Good Sam discount. Reservation process was done via online request from through the website and worked well. We had to make several changes to our initial reservation due to issues with our coach. Staff was very kind and understanding and never once gave us any inkling of attitude nor never did they say something snarky like "we can't promise you a site". They could not have been nicer which we really appreciated (because having troubles with your rig is stressful enough). Approaching the CG from Once off the 370 freeway, you'll make a left turn into a pretty small residential-looking street. There are signs but go slow so you don't miss it. It may seem a little hairy at first but it is do-able. Upon arrival, check in was fast, super friendly and efficient. As other reviewers have said, the park is immaculately clean. Interior roads are paved. The level cement pads have a small strip of grass in between but no shade. Hookups are well-placed and worked perfectly. Verizon cell and mifi worked fine. Clear sky for DirecTV signal. Park wifi was also excellent. They told us at check-in we could use their wifi to stream. When have you ever had an RV park tell you that??!! We actually didn't use it for streaming but were happy with general internet usage. Given that the freeway and a train track are quite close to the park (maybe .250 mile), it was remarkably quiet. Sometimes we'd hear the train rumble but it never sounded a whistle. If you are in sites 1 - 40, I imagine you'll probably hear more noise. If in the area, we would absolutely stay here again! We camped at Sundermeier RV Park in a Motorhome.

Driving to St. Louis takes 20-30 minutes. St. Charles is charming. Hendricks BBQ in St. Charles is GREAT. They have a nice outdoor deck overlooking the Katy Trail and river area. There is a Frank Lloyd Wright house "Ebsworth Park" available for tours in StL. Book ahead. Old school St. Louis must include an epic enormous BLT at Crown Candy and frozen custard at Ted Drewes. Of course there's the obvious must-do's - Gateway Arch, Cardinals baseball game and Anheuser Busch brewery.

Winton Woods Campground, Cincinnati, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 7 nights in May 2018. We paid $276.50 - no tax - plus $14 annual pass. Total cost was $290.50 or $41.50 avg nightly rate. Reservation process online was easy. We had to make a change to our original booking and staff was very helpful over the phone. Upon arrival at the park, the lady at the entry gate was super friendly. This is where we bought our $14 annual pass (which we expected). Upon arrival at the CG office, staff was efficient but not exactly exuberant. I appreciated the irony that they provided a plastic bag to use for recycling. The recycling instructions attached to the plastic bag prohibited plastic bags. This campground is pleasant and the overall park is very pretty. Sites on the perimeter of our loop were back-in gravel sites with sufficient room for our 43' rig and toad. There is a nice amount of grass and space with a tree between most sites. The pull-through sites in the middle of the loop are cement and appear to be a bit longer. All sites include a picnic table and fire pit. Water and sewer hookups worked well. However we had power problems during our entire stay. We notified the staff on Day One. They offered to move us to another site but only until the weekend when the CG would be full and then we'd have to move back to our original site. We didn't move. Instead we reduced our draw running only 1 a/c, etc. Weather was quite warm so it wasn't ideal but we made it work. We had clear sky for direcTV signal. Verizon cell and wifi were OK. There is free campground wifi which seemed to work well but we didn't use it much. The office sells various camp-type items including food/drinks. We had rain while we were there and the water drained well. There are all sorts of stores, restaurants and services within a few miles. If in the area, we would be willing to stay again.

Winton Woods is a large, beautiful park (the CG is only one part). Enjoy the foliage, lake and walking/biking path. Recommend the American Sign Museum which offers a free tour twice a day. It's very fun & nostalgic. Make the trip to the U.S. Air Force Museum in Dayton. It's HUGE. Wear comfy shoes and plan to spend the entire day. They have the Memphis Belle. The free docent-led tours are terrific and will help you not get too overwhelmed.

Safe Harbor RV Resort at Elm Hill, Nashville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed four weeks in a "B" site (#17) and paid the monthly rate of $1,195 (for 28 nights it was $43/night) with no addl tax or fees. Reservations were made by telephone several months in advance but they do have an online reservation system in place. I found the phones were answered promptly and the staff always capable and super friendly. One half of the money was collected upfront at time of reservation. Easy on/off the 40 freeway. Tip - if you are coming from the 40 driving south, you do NOT want to turn where you see "Elm Hill Marina". You need to drive another .25 mile to "Safe Harbor at Elm Hill". Check in was easy and efficient. The office area is a bit quirky with a decorative "traffic" circle. There is sufficient room to park on the side before or after the circle in order to check-in and disconnect the toad (vehicles will have sufficient space to get around you). We loved our site which had a "front yard" on the driver's side with a nice amount of space between us and our neighbor and lake views from nearly every window. Sites are cement and level - most with a picnic table and fire ring. The office sells firewood. Roads are asphalt in excellent condition. We had a decent amount of rain and did not see any water pooling. The lake is beautiful and any site in the park will have a nice view. The overall park is generally clean although we did find (and dispose of) numerous cigarette butts and small trash/debris in our site (my pet peeve!). Neighbors were pleasant. Very quiet day and night. All hook-ups worked perfectly with strong 50amp power. Open sky for DirecTV signal. Verizon cell and Mifi worked well. CG wifi was hit or miss. They said it's a new system and they're working out the kinks. When it worked, it was excellent. I did not see any recycling. We enjoyed this park very much along with its proximity to all things Nashville. We camped at Safe Harbor RV Resort at Elm Hill in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Near the CG is a trailhead (and large dog park) for the fabulous Music City Bikeway. It's perfect for walking, running, dog-walking and cycling. Suggest Andrew Jackson's Hermitage and guided tour of Ryman Auditorium. It takes 30-45 minutes driving to downtown depending on traffic. Good food and custom cocktails can be had at Hemingways and Sinema (both in town). Or, stay local at Papa Turney's serving wonderful hospitality, excellent BBQ and live jazz. Take in a Nashville Sounds baseball game.

Twin Lakes RV Park, Cumming, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 8 nights. Paid $280 or $35/night - no addl tax or fees. **Note - they only accept cash or checks** Reservations must be made by telephone but I always found the phones were answered promptly and the staff to be capable and friendly. No up front money is collected - just pay at check-in. We called (on day of) to see if we could arrive one day early. Office staff was friendly and accommodating and able to get us in (although we had to change sites after the first night). Easy on/off the freeway. Tip - when on Atlanta Hwy, the turn to the campground is where you see a sign "Mr. Fix". There is a campground sign but, for us, the "Mr. Fix" sign was easier to see. Check in was easy and efficient. There is plenty of room to park in front of the office and disconnect/reconnect the toad. We stayed on the plateau area (sites 41-51) in order to have 50 amp/water/sewer. The plateau is gravel and can be a little dusty if it's dry and a car drives by or a strong wind blows. On the other hand, we had a decent amount of rain one day/night and did not see any water pooling. The lakes are pretty and there is a small trail which allows you to walk around the perimeter of one lake (great for dog walking too). Overall park is clean although we did find (and dispose of) numerous cigarette butts in our site (gross!). Neighbors were pleasant. Very quiet day and night. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Open sky for DirecTV signal. Verizon cell and Mifi worked well. CG wifi was about as good as it gets working well nearly 100% of the time. I did not see any recycling. If you are a motorhome and if you don't need sewer and if you have a good amount of hose length, I suggest pulling nose-in to the lakefront sites 71-74 & 80-90. That way you'll have a wonderful view of the lake through your windshield. We camped at Twin Lakes RV Park in a Motorhome.

Highly recommend Fowler Park. Turn right from CG on Atlanta Hwy and go about 2 miles. Fowler Park has tons of amenities (sports fields, track, basketball courts, skate park, etc.) and you can access Big Creek Greenway for walking, running, cycling or dog walking. The Greenway is a lovely, safe off-road path. Gibbs Gardens is 220 acres of beautiful. Allow plenty of time, wear comfy shoes and enjoy! We discovered good burgers and extra-yummy fries at Burger Bus in Ball Ground (near Gibbs Gardens).

Bryn Mawr Ocean Resort, St Augustine Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $80.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 7 nights in a beach front site. Cost was $80/night plus 10.5% tax or $88.40/night total. We called in January to reserve for April and they were full. Called two weeks later and were thrilled that a beach front site had opened up. Lucky us! Check in was efficient. Office and maintenance staff friendly. Our amazing site offered a large, level cement pad with plenty of room for 45' plus a toad parked sideways and reasonable space between neighbors. Sites vary as they are individually owned. Ours had a raised & covered patio with picnic table plus a separate metal table for our grill and pretty stone landscaping on each side of site. CG is clean, well-managed and the location is fabulous. The beach is immediately adjacent to the park and couldn't be more beautiful. There are lots of amenities for kids and adults. Very family friendly. Trash picked up daily at site. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Clear sky for DirecTV. Good signal for Verizon cell and Mifi. A few negatives - the palm trees along the exit route inside the park need trimming (specifically up high for tall rigs). The spa had warm water but not hot as it should be and the jets didn't "jet" water. The DH said it was more of a warm tub rather than a spa. I didn't see any recycling. Entrance to CG is a little quirky. If you're a big rig towing, enter very slowly so you can decide if you want to unhook the toad before or after the gate. Before the gate can be tough because the curve may prevent you from getting straight enough to unhook. If need be, the office will gladly open the gate to allow you through and, on the other side, you'll have plenty of space to unhook. This is a popular CG (for good reason) so plan ahead and reserve early. If you call and they're full, keep trying. We enjoyed our time here and would be absolutely delighted to stay again. We camped at Bryn Mawr Ocean Resort in a Motorhome.

Easy access to grocery stores. Recommend Soggy Doggy dog grooming a mile south on A1A. Historic St. Aug. is magical and the fort is very special. Kids will love the canon demonstration! To see the early 1800's historic shipwreck that washed ashore in March 2018 in Ponte Vedra - park at Exxon station and walk north on beach about 1/2 mile. It's in front of private residences in the 2500 block on A1A.

Lazydays RV Campground, Seffner, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $70.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 3 nights in the beginning of March in a 45' site. This is prime season with a rate of $69.99 plus 12% tax for a nightly rate of $78.39. We stayed again for 3 nights at the end of March (also a 45' site). The rate was $53.99 plus tax for a nightly rate of $60.47. We tried to get a site for a few nights in late February but they were booked. Plan ahead if you want to stay during peak periods. The reservation system works well and emails a confirmation promptly. It requests credit card info but does not collect any funds. One quirk is that the reservation doesn't show the cost which I thought was odd. Easy access from the 4 freeway. Large staging area with long pull-through diagonal sites. It's perfect for arrivals and departures to unhook or hook up your toad. Check-in was friendly and efficient. We were 45 minutes early on our first visit and they were very gracious to put us into a site immediately - no drama. Our site was level and exactly 45' long. We parked our toad sideways in front of our rig which is what everyone must do. You may need to ask a neighbor to move their vehicle to get into or out of your site. Everyone is friendly. We saw no issues. All hook-ups worked perfectly. Open sky for DirecTV signal. Good Verizon cell and Mifi. No recycling that I could see. Trash is picked up at your site. The Lazydays property including dealership is HUGE. You can rent a golf cart or bicycle or there is a trolley. If walking, stay on pedestrian walkways when possible. The DH enjoyed the spa a few times. My only issue is small pieces of trash in our site. We would be happy to stay here again. We camped at Lazydays RV Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You are provided with meal tickets for breakfast and lunch at the dealership cafeteria. Pay attention to the cafeteria hours. They close right on time and are closed on Sundays. The food isn't anything special but it's free and it's fun to walk through the lot and see the new RV's. Bring money in case you want more at the cafeteria than is covered by your meal ticket.

Columbia Restaurant in Ybor City Historic District is a must - wonderful old building/architecture, excellent food and nice atmosphere including live music. Attend a Tampa Bay Rays game. It's the last MLB dome stadium remaining. CG is close to Camping World, Tampa RV and General RV.

C.B. Smith Park, Pembroke Pines, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Paid $40/night plus 6% tax $42.40/night all-in. Online reservation system is quirky but it works. Required to pay 100% at time of reservation. Check in was fast and friendly. Upon entering the park, the office is the first thing you see. It has a sign clearly identifying it. There are two long parking spots on the right available for check-in but both spots curve making it tricky to get straight in order to unhook a toad (the DH managed to do it). Park staff suggested an alternate area to unhook or rehook (parking lot 22 across from entrance to camping area). If you opt for this, watch the trees. Suggest you enter/exit parking lot 22 using the second driveway which is a little bit past the campground turn. Our site was #15 which was plenty long for a 45' coach plus toad parked sideways. However this site is in the middle of the "u" of a horseshoe with the curve not particularly big rig friendly. We avoided the curve by driving to where the second horseshoe tip meets the road and backing all the way in (if that makes sense). It's not as far as it sounds and it worked perfectly. We had a lovely lake view through our big windshield. All hook-ups worked well. There was trash on our site (my pet peeve) including numerous cigarette butts (gross!). Our site had one good sized tree on each side but we were still able to obtain a DirecTV signal. Most sites seem fairly open but there are trees here and there which could obstruct a signal. We had 5 bars on Verizon. There are trash dumpsters conveniently located plus recycling bins. Showers were basically clean except for hair on walls and drain plus dead bugs and cobwebs on light fixtures. This is a slice of paradise inside a metropolitan area with trails for walking, running or biking. Neighbors were friendly. We discovered the max stay is 180 days and noticed some folks seemed settled in for the long haul. No wonder it's so hard to get a site. If in the area, we would be happy to stay here again. We camped at C.B. Smith Park in a Motorhome.

PAK Mail is 1/2 mile to the left on Flamingo and very helpful for shipping needs. Trader Joe's is at corner of Flamingo/Pines. Highly recommend mobile technician Sean with RV Master. He's not cheap but he's very good (better than our mfr helpline). He diagnosed and fixed our power issue in ten minutes flat. Traffic is awful all times of day. Allow plenty of time.
