Ocala National Forest / Salt Springs Rec Area, Fort McCoy, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This is our second time camping at Salt Springs Recreation Area. This year I was able to use my Senior Pass, which gave a good discount on camping fees. Our rig was 40' long + a long bed dually truck and we barely fit in Site 15 even with the back end of our fifth wheel hanging way off the concrete pad. We parked the truck sideways and one wheel was a little on the grass, which is not allowed, but no one came by and fussed at us. We love this campground, but wish that AT&T got service here. We were here for a total of two weeks and we had to drive quite a way down the road to get any signal at all. The campground is working on getting wifi installed. It worked one afternoon for about half an hour, then never came back up. I imagine it will take awhile to work all the bugs out, but will be so much nicer than having to drag the computer up to the office to get wifi. The staff were always very nice and friendly, especially one lady!

We were here for a geocaching event and stayed for the huge numbers of geocaches available in the forest that kept us busy for the whole time. We did drive over to the springs, but it was chilly and we didn't swim. We wanted to extend our stay, but our site was reserved, so we moved to site 98 in the walk-up section. Really like this area better, site was bigger and there is a huge grassy area between the backs of your camper and the ones across from you. The only downside to this site was that you had to back your rig up an incline. There are a lot of limbs hanging over the roads. Wish the crew would cut some of them to prevent scraping the taller rigs. We will be back again soon! We camped at Ocala National Forest / Salt Springs Rec Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Traverse City State Park, Traverse City, Michigan

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed for five nights in a hybrid travel trailer. We were on site 105, which is against the park fence. The sites on this side were long and very narrow, so you are right up against your neighbor. Tents in the site next to us were literally touching our picnic table. We loved all the tall pines in the park which provided lots of shade, however, it makes for difficulty situating your travel trailer so that you can open your slides and awning. We were lucky and were able to do get both slides and the awning out, but can imagine there could be difficulty in other sites. The shared power box was confusing as well and you may need a longer than normal power cord to be able to reach depending on the site you get. We were camping the first week the park opened, so only the west loop was open and the bath house for this loop was not very nice. It was definitely older and my sister-in-law tried to shower in one of the narrow, dark shower stalls and couldn't get any warm water. A couple of days later, the bath house in the middle loop opened and it was a nice, new facility with great individual showers that were clean and new and had plenty of hot water. We found out later there was a problem with the hot water in our bath house, which explained the cold shower! We arrived on a Friday afternoon and Friday and Saturday night, the loop was pretty full, but after that, we pretty much had the place to ourselves as we checked out on a Wednesday. We didn't have any problems dumping on the day we checked out, but there are only two dumping spots both together, so one RV must go around and come in from the opposite side. I'm sure this creates a big problem on busy weekends. Additionally, there was only one hose at the dump station, so the other RV that pulled up while we were dumping had to wait his turn to hook up his backflush. We did hear some road noise from 72, but it wasn't too bad. We had great AT&T 4G service during our stay. We would stay here again! We camped at Traverse City State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sleeping Bear Dunes is a MUST see! Absolutely gorgeous. Bring bikes to ride the Heritage trail. We climbed all the way to the top of the highest dune. Quite a trek, but beautiful views! We are geocachers and hired Capt. Mike of Ambitious Charters to take us out to Power Island for Michigan's oldest cache. Highly recommend Capt. Mike!

Maumee Bay State Park, Oregon, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed four nights and loved everything about this park (with the exception of no water/sewer on site). The park is very well planned and laid out. The sites are level and spacious with a good deal of privacy between most sites. Check-in was fast and friendly and there was plenty of signage to know where to fill up your water tank and for the sanitary dump station. We read how crazy it is to dump on most Sundays, so we had everything hooked up and ready to travel the night before, so we got to the dump station at 6:45 and had it all to ourselves. We loved all the bike trails and the great boardwalk! We saw lots of beautiful birds everywhere in the park and along the boardwalk, saw owls, muskrats and a few snakes, as well. Lake Erie was stirred up from recent storms, so the water was really brown, but we can't say enough nice things about the park itself! We had good AT&T 4G during our stay, but our brother-in-law, who camped next to us, couldn't get any AT&T 4G at all on their IPads. Would probably rate this park a 10 if they had water and sewer connections at the sites, but it was a minor inconvenience, especially since there were lots of gray water dumps with potable water available nearby for refilling the fresh water onboard tanks. Will definitely come back here if we're in the area again. We camped at Maumee Bay State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Four Mile Creek State Park, Youngstown, New York

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in this campground for four nights as a base for seeing Niagara Falls, the gorge and bike riding along the Erie Canal Trail. We arrived at the end of a long day of non-stop rain and found our campsite (#238) with standing water and mud everywhere. We managed to get the trailer backed in and were able to get our entrance stairs positioned over the only spot that didn't have mud and standing water. All the campsites appear to have grass only and a dirt patch for backing your trailer in, which makes it bad for rainy days, but otherwise not too bad if you're lucky to get there when not raining. We had a premium waterfront site and the views from this site were outstanding. We could see Lake Ontario from our dining table and had an excellent view while sitting around the campfire. We visited the Canadian side of the falls as we were told that is the best side for viewing. The place is a carnival, with huge signs, music blaring and total commercialism. The walk down by the falls was lovely though and offset the experience getting from parking several blocks away down to the falls area. There were huge crowds of people everywhere, as I imagine it would be most anytime during the warmer months. We enjoyed Niagara gorge much better and took a hike on one of the trails that goes along the gorge. We had the place to ourselves. At the campground, we had AT&T service enough to use our hotspot for most of the four days we were there, with some breaks in service here and there. However, our brother and sister-in-law that we were traveling with, could get no AT&T 4G on their IPads. We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area. We camped at Four Mile Creek State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We rode our bikes on part of the Erie Canal Trail from Tonawanda heading towards Lockport. There were some really pretty parts of this trail and options to ride in a couple of parks along this part of the route. However, the trail takes to the roads in a couple of spots. You ride along a fairly wide shoulder, but the traffic is pretty steady along the places we had to ride. All in all a great ride and would like to try other parts of the trail.

Falling Waters Campsite, Falling Waters, West Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We were on our way home after a five week trip to the Great Lakes and didn't realize it was Memorial weekend. Could not find anywhere to stay, but luckily, the policy of this place does not take advance reservations, so we called the day we planned to arrive and they were able to accommodate us for two nights. The site we were assigned was right by the busy road and was down in a grassy gully by a little stream that looked scary and pretty muddy with all the rain, but we were able to just barely get our trailer situated around the trees. We got mud all over our truck and trailer when leaving the next day as it rained overnight and made the site even muddier. These sites could stand to have some gravel added to keep the mud down. The water did not work at our site, but we still had water on board and were only there for two nights so it wasn't a problem. We did have good wi-fi here and AT&T cell service. I don't think the sites down by the little creek in the front had cable hookups, but we didn't need any as we rarely watch TV while camping. The road noise was loud all day and night, but we ran our fans and put in ear plugs at night, so we were able to get a good night's sleep. Looks like most of the campground is occupied by full timers living there, but was not a problem. We would stay here again for an overnight or two if in the area, but would hope to get a site away from the road. Also, with no sewer at our site, we weren't able to dump as they don't have a sanitary dump station, so this was not good for more than a couple of days. We camped at Falling Waters Campsite in a Travel Trailer.

A+ RV Park, Alvord, Texas

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

We made reservations online for two nights arriving on a Sunday afternoon. When we arrived, the office was closed and we had no idea where to go. We looked at our confirmation e-mail and it gave the site number, but no other information about the campground (rules, wi-fi password, codes to the restrooms, etc.). Our site was the closest one to the road, so we experienced lots of road noise, but our travel trailer is a hybrid, which has tent ends, so it was probably louder for us than someone in a 5th wheel or motorhome. We were able to get set up and another camper gave us the code to the restrooms so we could get a shower. There is only one ladies and one men's restroom, but they were spotlessly clean, very updated and private, with the shower, toilet and sink all in the same room. This is probably the nicest restroom we have ever encountered in a campground in our travels. There are also two washers and dryers on each side (two each in the ladies and two each in the men's). The washers and dryers were very new, front load machines. The next morning, we went to check in and the very nice lady asked if we hadn't already picked our packet up that she had placed in the mailbox on the side of the office. Of course, not knowing it was there, we hadn't picked it up and in fact, someone else had removed it. She reprinted the information sheets and provided us with everything we needed to know.

We have two small dogs that travel with us and it was a bit difficult to walk them on any grassy area as there were stickers everywhere that got caught in our dog's feet. Just a word of warning for dog owners stopping here.

We would most likely stop here again if we are passing through the area, but would ask for a site closer to the back of the park. We camped at A+ RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Gulf State Park Campground, Gulf Shores, Alabama

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed at Gulf State Park for three different stays, each a week or a little longer. The sites on some loops are larger than others (the ones on Gator Road on the lake are closer together). We stayed on the main road all the way towards the back of the park this time and liked the sites there better as they were farther apart. There are loads of biking trails through the park and over to the city of Orange Beach. You can combine loops to make shorter or longer rides. AT&T 4G works great here. The prices have gone up recently at the park, but they do give you a free pier pass and free parking at the pavilion (which is normally $6 a day), so that does make it a little better. Lots of people bring their dogs, but all seem to be responsible pet owners for the most part. We will be back again! We camped at Gulf State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

F. D. Roosevelt State Park, Pine Mountain, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in late April/early May for a total of 15 nights (one extra night approved by manager). We love state parks for the feel of being in the woods instead of a parking lot and this campground had plenty of that! There were several loops to camp in, some with lake views, but we chose loop 500 for the large private sites. We had a nice pull-through site with a ton of space between our neighbors on both sides. Neighbors across the street were staggered, so there was no one directly across the street from us. We loved hearing the huge variety of songbirds in this park! They serenaded us all day and night. We saw a really strange squirrel-like creature that we asked about and were told it was a fox squirrel. Had never seen one before and only saw the one on that day and never saw another. We never saw deer or other wildlife (beside squirrels and birds), but it was very quiet and peaceful. There was an older bath house on our loop and there are trails to it from every campsite. The camp hosts kept the bathhouses very clean, but one shower stall backed up and seemed in danger of flowing over the one time I used that stall (there were only two in the ladies'). Mentioned to the camp hosts that said they had told maintenance about it. We were lucky to be camping there before peak season and the campground was basically empty except for the weekends. This is a beautiful park, with lots and lots of hiking trails, some right from the campground. Callaway Gardens is next door and has miles of bike trails, which we took advantage of three different times (there is an entrance fee, but if you go more than once, an annual pass is a better deal). The gray water dump stations spaced conveniently around each loop saved us from towing our blue boy over to the dump station at least twice during our stay. All in all, a great place to spend a day, a week or longer! We camped at F. D. Roosevelt State Park in a Travel Trailer.
