Silver Springs State Park (formerly Silver River State Park), Ocala, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

What a wonderful, delightful hidden gem! We had site #36. It had water & electric (the utility hook-ups looked to be brand new!), but not sewer hook-up (typical for most FL state parks). There are a few that have sewer, they just weren't available when we were there. Dump station is convenient, easy in & out with 2 sewer areas available. There's also water to flush or clean up. Our site was level, wide, and deep with tightly packed gravel. Plenty of room to accommodate our 32ft. trailer and a large tent next to it, as well as 2 large vehicles. There was a picnic table, fire ring AND a separate free-standing grill. Lots and lots of room between sites with foliage/trees all around, making it very private and roomy. Restrooms/showers were clean and nice, an easy walk from most any site. The showers had good water pressure, lots of hot water and the door to the shower area even locks for privacy (instead of the usual curtain). Good cell phone signal for calls & internet (AT&T). Only about 6 channels over the antenna. Very pet friendly with several doggie poop bag stations around. There's hiking paths in the area too. The ranger station/check-in staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The actual entrance to the Springs park isn't far but it's on hwy 40 so you have to drive to it; entry is included with your camping fee. The camping fee is reasonable at approx $28.87 per night (3 nights=$72.00+$6.70 reserve fee+$7.92 tax= $86.62 total for 3 nights). I love this park and the campgrounds! We will definitely be back again and again. We camped at Silver Springs State Park (formerly Silver River State Park) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

You have to check out Silver Springs State Park! Do the famous glass bottom boat tour (only $11). It's worth it! You can kayak (bring your own or rent theirs) and enjoy the crystal clear waters and scenery in this lovely park. Take a walk around the beautiful grounds too. There's a gift shop, ice cream shop, and coffee shop there too. You can bring your dog on a leash to walk the grounds or in a kayak if your want; they just aren't allowed on the glass bottom boat tours. Outside the park, there's lots of restaurants and stores nearby. Just head west on Hwy 40 and you'll find the WalMart as well as lots of fast food and sit-down restaurants.

Parris Island RV Park (Military FamCamp), Parris Island Marine Base, South Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This RV park is located on the active base of the Marine Corp Recruiting Depot. Directions on the Military campgrounds website were pretty good, EXCEPT that they indicated you have to call if arriving on a Sunday (which we were) to secure keys to unlock the utilities. Despite many, many phone calls on the Thursday & Friday prior, and during operating hours, no one answered the campground phone; numerous messages left with no return calls. We were a bit worried, but when we arrived, our site (#4) was indeed open and no issue with any kind of lock on the utilities. We just backed in and set up; there's nowhere to really check in. There's only 18 RV sites here, all in a row with the bath/showers in the middle. They back up to trees (even though the map looks like there's water behind). Site has full hook-ups and is a mixture of gravel, grass, concrete & asphalt. The fairly large concrete area is a patio next to the RV (for under the awning), & has a picnic table. Asphalt drive up to the gravel & grass where the RV is parked. Sites are very wide and level but somewhat near other sites with no shrubs or trees between. Free internet with a strong signal most of the time; AT&T also had a strong signal, TV got around 15 channels over the antenna. Easy to back in and get out. Very quiet, rather secluded. We didn't get to do much because it rained most of the time we camped. Roads to drive through the base are good and easy to navigate. There's a gas station and Bx there too. This park is a great bargain! We camped at Parris Island RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

Drive into Beaufort. There's a nice little downtown area by the bay with beautiful homes facing the bay. We went to a restaurant called "Q on Bay", a great barbeque place with craft beer. The Brunswick Stew is quite yummy! As are the wings, the sliders, and best of all the warm southern pecan pie!

Falls Lake SRA / Holly Point Campground, Wake Forest, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed in Holly Point Loop 3, site 87. Cost is usually: $24.00 per night + a reservation fee of $6.00 (for entire stay). We got a $3/nt military discount to = $21. Great RV site, nice and spacious! It was gravel but level, lots of space between sites with trees, picnic table, and fire ring (ashes had been totally cleaned out w/leftover logs set aside. Nice!). There's alot of room for lounging. Good channel selections with antenna. No wi-fi available but good signal with AT&T. No sewer hook-up but the dump station depot has 2 areas to use and is roomy. Water pressure just ok. One issue though! Since there's no sewer hook-up, in order to keep our grey tank from filling up, I thought I'd use the shower at the park bathrooms. These were fairly clean but a little old. The showers, however, were terrible! First of all, there's no heat (or cooling for summer) in the building so it was cold in there. The shower stalls have no privacy to change clothes by the bench outside the wet area; only a curtain for the shower area itself. The shower is one of those old-timey push button ones but the water doesn't stay on! The water comes out for literally one second! Then you have to keep pushing it every second. And the water is cold and never warms up (how can it when the flow is interruped every other second???). So I gave up & took a brief (but warm) shower in our trailer. We camped at Falls Lake SRA / Holly Point Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Powhatan Recreation Area, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a National Forest and the area is beautiful but the roads are very hilly, narrow, winding! Make sure your vehicle is up to taking on these steep roads. We made it with our pickup and 32 ft travel trailer, you just have to go slow & easy. Backing into our site, #44, was a little tough with posts etc in the way, but we finally got it. The site was asphalt & fairly level. The park hosts/rangers make rounds alot. Sewer connection was all the way in the back so we had to go buy an extension (since our sewer outlet is located mid-camper, not at the back). No cable or internet; AT&T was pretty non-existent the 1st day but got a little better. TV stations were only a few local w/antenna & they break-up sometimes. Our site backed up to the woods which was really nice; had many hiking paths. There's lots of room between sites and trees all around. Cost is usually:$22 per night, then an additional $9.oo per day for full hook-ups for a total of $31.00 per night. We used our National Park Senior pass so we got a discount of $11.00 per day. We camped at Lake Powhatan Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

The Biltmore estate is a must-see (20-30 min drive). If you like breweries, Asheville is full of them as well as lots of nice restaurants. Parking around the action (where all the breweries & restaurants are) can be challenging. We did a City Comedy tour with LaZoom which was a fun way to learn about the city.

Pointes West Army Rec Area (Military FamCamp), Appling, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $14.00
Overall Rating:

Roads are wide enough and well maintained but it's hilly. Our site, 4C, was gravel and grass; and sites are tiered down with the slope to the lake. Our site sloped alot toward the water making it difficult to maneuver into place but we finally got it and had just enough pads to build up for the stabilizer jacks. Other sites that we noticed that would be better (less sloped) are: 4E, 4F, 4I, & 4J. Your site is assigned by the park but I think you can request one. Sites are fairly close together. All utilities are at the very back so we had to back in enough for our mid-camper sewer hook-up to reach. Water pressure at the site was not optimal so showers were a little challenging. They have a trash can at each campsite which was a nice touch; no hauling your trash to a dumpster. The staff are very nice. Lovely grounds to walk around in, walk the dog, take a hike. A bit too hilly for us to ride a bike; there's no designated trails, just the road. Each campsite has a picnic table, fire ring w/grill. Facility bathrooms were very clean & nice, even had paper towels instead of the usual broken down air dryers. Pointes West is the recreational (MWR) facility for Ft. Gordon (must be active duty or retired to use) and is right on Lake Stom Thurmond which is a nice, really large lake. Ft. Gordon is actually 45 mins away and is a good sized active militray post, Headquarters of the Army Signal Corps (with a post exchange, commissary, library, etc). Strong cell phone signal w/AT&T. No Wi-Fi available; we just use our phone data (assuming you have a strong enough signal) and also as a personal hot-spot for other devices such as a computer or tablet. Cost per night: for retired military=$14 per night. A real bargin! But I think you have to call to get that rate or have them re-do the reservation when you arrive. We camped at Pointes West Army Rec Area (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

James E. Johnson Memorial RV Park (Military FamCamp), Camp Blanding National Guard Post, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

Great place to bring kayaks or other watercraft. Easy access to the water's edge. Roads to navigate to the site are windy & narrow. The site was all concrete, double wide & level with a picnic table & fire ring. There's a nice off-leash dog park nearby. One complaint was that it was very noisy from a neighboring section on a Sat. evening; setting off firecrackers (my dog freaks out) and playing loud music. I'm sure this was not allowed but there didn't seem to be anyone patroling and stopping it. Our site was near the water and there's a nice area to walk along or just sit and enjoy the large lake. Free Wi-Fi internet; not very speedy but hey, it's free. No cable TV but picked up about 14 local stations with the antenna. These sites are on the actual military post (must be active or retired military to use) so you have to go through the ID check at the gate each time but it's manned 24/7. The park is not really convenient to stores or restaurants (nothing on the post either) so come prepared. Drive into Starke for these, about 7 miles one way. Cost per night = $31.25 per night (+ 12% tax), PLUS a daily pet fee (if you have one) = $3.27 per night (+ 7% tax). Total for us for 2 nights = $77.00. We camped at James E. Johnson Memorial RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Travel Trailer.

Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah, Georgia

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

This Georgia State Park now takes site specific reservations which is good since they only have 17 sites with full hook-ups (i.e. sewer, cable); others have water and electric only with a dump station nearby. The price has gone up a bit from $42 per night to $49. The RV park itself is really great. There's very tall trees all around, large and wide sites with alot of room between campers. The site is gravel not concrete and has a fire ring and a large picnic table. The staff is also great; the Park Ranger stopped by a couple of times just to see if we needed anything. Just be aware that at night time, there is NO ambient light around. It's very dark which is wonderful for stargazing, privacy, and quiet. But when you need to get out and walk the dog, make sure you have a good flashlight!! There's no amenities really at this park but nearby Savannah is a treat as well as Tybee Island. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Indian Point RV Resort, Gautier, Mississippi

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

We were evacuating Florida from Hurricane Irma and found this wonderful campground. The price can't be beat and the staff is great. It's set off from the road so it's quiet. Because of all the evacuees, we ended up in the overflow but actually liked it better than some sites. It was all level concrete & backed up to a view of the water with a large grassy area behind to walk our dogs and saw kids playing. Plenty of room to park our tow vehicle. There's a lovely pool, pavillion & clubhouse, boat ramp and docks nearby as well as a restaurant serving breakfast and lunch that was yummy. We stayed 2 nights; I would have stayed longer but we had to get back to assess damage. Highly recommend this park! Staff is wonderful, they escort you to your site. Office is open til 8am-8pm. There's miniature golf & horse shoes (for free!). I noticed some of the regular sites were close together and some were sloped so check it out first, then ask for one you want. They have military and Good Sam discounts. They have full hook-ups, cable is very good. WiFi is spotty at best. Both AT&T and Verizon work well.

When you go back out to the main road, turn left and go about a mile or so to all kinds of shopping available, restaurants, Lowe's, etc. If you turn right at the main road, there's a Mexican restaurant down the way (we didn't get a chance to try it but there were lots of cars there). There's also a Dollar General store that's good to pick up a few grocery and sundry items for camping.

Bellingrath RV Park, Theodore, Alabama

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

OK, so we were evacuating due to Hurricane Irma and this was the ONLY place we could find that had a site available. At that point I wasn't picky. However, this place is really run down & trashy looking. Many of the RV's have been there 10 yrs or more and they look it! Really old, dirty, with junk all around them. And at $40.00 per night, it was ridiculous. On the good side, we had full hook-ups, cable worked great with a lot of channels and the staff were nice but they couldn't give me a WiFi password without all my devices' ID addresses for them to put in their computer. Huh? No one else does this so I said forget it. There is a pool, laundry, shower/bathroom at the house structure (where the owners live I presume) that is much nicer than the rest of the park. We stayed only one night because I knew we could get something better for $40/night. Unless you have no other choice, move on. We camped at Bellingrath RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We were evacuating due to Hurricane Irma and found this little gem. It's a quaint, quiet little area with beautiful views of the lake. There were only a couple of sites left and the manager said we could stay one night at no charge (for evacuees) but everyone had to leave the next morning due to mandatory evacuation. We found a lovely site (#6) but it was a bit tricky backing in our 32 ft TT. The roads are steep, narrow, and curvy but we managed. Once we got it positioned, there were lots of trees to shade, a fire pit, picnic table and alot of room by the RV but not much left to park our tow vehicle. Bath & shower houses were pretty standard but clean. We camped at Coe Landing in a Travel Trailer.

Quail Roost RV Campground, Crystal River, Florida

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We booked for 3 nights. Rates are very reasonable at $35/nt and then we used the 10% military discount. There are full hook-ups, however the sewer drain is at the very back by the electric & water. Most travel trailers have their grey & black water discharge pipes located around the middle of the rig. We had to stretch our drain hose to the max to make it work. Be aware if you at an AT&T customer! There is NO cell phone signal; which makes it difficult to call the office number for your site. Apparently this is Verizon country. When you get the WiFi code though, it works great! Also be aware that this is a CASH ONLY establishment. We ended up staying for only two nights because of mandatory evacuation due to Hurricane Irma and could not get any refund. The park itself has good size dog areas with waste bags & cans available. Sites were pretty close together and the roads were a little tight. Staff were very friendly and escort you to your site. The pool and rec center were also nice.

Topsail Hill State Preserve, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This state park campground is located between Panama City Beach & Destin. It is a bit different than other Florida state parks in that you have sewer and cable hook-up in addition to the usual water and electric (50/30 amp). The list of cable channels is extensive and the reception was great although we spent most of our time outside, not inside watching TV. There are many biking and hiking trails. There is a trolley available that takes you to the Gulf of Mexico beach (it's a bit of a walk at almost a mile especially if you are lugging beach gear). We rode our bikes there and there's still a long boardwalk to navigate through the sand dunes to get to the beach itself. Unfortunately, the weather was not conducive to swimming or sunbathing during our visit. Please note! This is a very popular state park and the camp was quite full. Lots of families (meaning lots of kids around). Some sites are concrete, some are gravel (we had gravel) but it was very level. There was a picnic table at our site but no fire pit. The staff is nice and helpful. The bathrooms/shower building has A/C. One thing that I was not happy about is their policy regarding use of personal kayaks. There's several coastal lakes in the park but you cannot use your own kayak, you have to rent one of theirs. They claimed the reason was the coastal lakes have a delicate ecosystem and they don't want any kind of foreign algae or contaminants brought in to it. While I'm sure the lake's ecosystem should be considered, there's another state park just down the road with the exact same kind of coastal lakes and they allow personal kayaks. I think it was just some kind of ploy to force people to rent their equipment. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Travel Trailer.

Crooked River State Park, Saint Marys, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We arrived for a 1 night stay during a torrential downpour so my review is limited at best. I wanted to write one to let you know the area is very lovely and is a place we will definitely return to in the future for a much longer stay. Georgia state parks only guarantee a site is available; when you arrive, you get to pick the site you like best! This is kind of a nice way to pick a site, especially when you have never been there. In Florida, you have to reserve specific sites even though you don't really know what would be best. The staff were very nice and helpful. We had to back in and hook up our trailer in the pouring rain too. Because of the deluge of rain, there was a lot of standing water around our campsite but we managed. The next morning I walked around a bit and noticed it's right by the water, there are areas to watch wildlife and there's plenty of space at each site as well as in between sites. I read there's a mini-golf course, kayak rentals, etc. Close by is the Kings Bay Navy Submarine Base and a submarine museum to visit. We will be back! Hopefully with better weather! Also, the cost includes park admission ($5 I think) but you get a small refund for a senior discount, so mention it (if they don't ask) on check-in.

Fort De Soto Campground, Tierra Verde, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely campground with most sites backing up to water. The sites feel private with loads of trees and plants for shade and division between. All sites are very deep, even for big rigs but some are narrower than others so check each one (ours had some trees and overhang that made it a bit tight but we managed). Sites only have electric and water, no sewer or fire pit. You can bring your own fire pit; there's a large picnic table and a permanent charcoal grill. The dump station was close to ours but we were near the front. The showers were great with good water pressure and plenty of hot water; restrooms were clean. Admission to Ft. DeSoto Park is included in the camping fee. Bring your bikes! There's lots of paved bike trails and it's a short ride from the campgrounds to the park. Ft. DeSoto Park has a large leash-free fenced area for dogs to run, as well as a great dog beach (also leash-free). As with the previous review, we also had an issue with ants getting in the trailer, going for the dog food apparently. Being by the water, there were also a lot of mosquitos and "no-see-ums", so bring bug spray and citronella candles! Beautiful scenery though with a variety of local birds and awesome sunsets overlooking the water. Also, it was very quiet, even being in the area for pets.

We took the ferry to Egmont Key ($20 pp R/T) that was fun. Also snorkeled there (extra charge). The closest grocery store (Publix) is in St. Pete beach (about 10 mi). There's lots of restaurants there or go even a bit further north to Treasure Island where you'll find John's Pass Village and Boardwalk.

We arrived after the office was closed but had an envelope with all the info we needed. Seems to be place frequented by Canadians as the instructions were in English as well as French. The sites are concrete but very narrow as well as limited length-wise. With our shortbed pick-up and a 25ft. travel tailer, it barely fit. Sites are very close together; thank goodness several sites close by were vacant in order to just to maneuver our camper in. There is no shade at all so you get the full brunt of the morning and afternoon sun. The pool looked nice but we didn't use it. Dog walk was just ok but there's no bags available for clean-up so bring your own. It was quiet at night which was nice. We camped at Port St Lucie RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Jensen Beach is a bit of drive to get there but if you want to see the ocean, you can. The US 1 is close by so there's options for eating or groceries.
