Suwannee River Rendezvous, Mayo, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

We booked several days here on a trip back from Midwestern Georgia. We chose this campground based on the good reviews on trip advisor. The reviews and the park's website we felt were misleading. If you have an RV set up of longer than 20-25 feet, the only sites available have no shade. There is an old original section near the Convict Springs that is beautifully shaded and what you would expect for old Florida by the Suwannee River. We probably would have overlooked the no-shade but they advertise cable and free Wi-Fi. Cable was so fuzzy we went to our air antenna. The Wi-Fi was frustrating as heck as it cut you off every 1-2 hours and you would have to log back in and it was not suitable for anything except checking an occasional email. On the positive side, the park was very clean and well maintained. Grassy areas were very attractive and everything appeared almost new. Full Hookups, good water pressure and 50 Amp service. Nice community pool. The dog park area was the best we have EVER seen! They had 5 separate fenced, clean, grassy dog areas. Our greyhounds loved it. The staff was friendly and very nice. Passport America discount made the rates very attractive. Not sure if we would book here again. We camped at Suwannee River Rendezvous in a Motorhome.

Florence Marina State Park, Omaha, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This has to rank as one of the nicest state parks we have encountered. We were in site 16 at the end of the loop. The site was spacious, fully shaded, and relatively easy to back into. We travel in a 35 foot class A motorcoach and had no trouble getting the coach backed into place with plenty of room for our tow car. There are a lot of open grassy picnic areas throughout the park (extremely clean and well maintained) and the views of the Lake were gorgeous with ample places to walk your pets. Sites are packed dirt and gravel with forest floor leaf litter. No noticeable bugs while we were there in mid-October. Fire rings and picnic tables were at each site. Site only had 30 amp electricity and full hook ups. We wished we stayed longer than our 5 Days. Camp hosts were amazing. No AT&T cell service but t-mobile worked. Cable was fuzzy but over-the-air tv channels worked well. We camped at Florence Marina State Park in a Motorhome.

We toured the Richland Rum distillery and our host Jennifer was amazing. We also toured the Omaha Brewery and had a fabulous time in the tasting room. We went back a second day just to get some fresh canned brew to take home as gifts. We visited Providence Canyon State Park and did the hike into the Canyon. It was worth the walk and the .25 mile climb back up. Also visited Eufaula, AL and went by the shorter mansion (Sweet Home Alabama Movie). We were too late to take the tour that day.

Mike Roess Gold Head Branch State Park, Keystone Heights, Florida

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We were in site #48 Lake View Loop . . No sewer at sites. There is one dump station on exit road on the way out.. The dump station is not within walking distance of the Lake View camping area. We would have to drag our portable grey water containers about a mile. Some of the Handicap sites have concrete pads. The park had very few campers when we were there so it was very quiet. Lake View Loop. 54, 55, 56 are pull through sites but have limited or no shade. 42-49 are tucked away on a small loop off the main road and are all shaded back-in sites. Sites 68-74 are mostly shaded and closer to the lake but no view from those sites either. I would be cautious of 68-71 as I noticed they were prone to flooding during the heavy rain. Some are a bit tough to back into because of the trees and overhanging branches but manageable with a helper to help you back in. The bathrooms were very clean and had at least two shower stalls each for men and women. I think all the sites have fire rings and picnic tables. It is a typical Florida state park set up. The sites are hard pack sand with leaf debris on the ground. Our outdoor mats kept the majority of the dirt from getting in the camper.

The park is over 2,000 acres so it is a big park and built back in the 30's by the CCC. There are plenty of paved roadway to ride bikes or walk on and plenty of back wood trails to hike as well. Several lakes on the property one of which is designated for swimming (but watch for alligators). We did not swim in it. That lake is a mile or more from the Lake View campground section. They do have an amazing picnic area near the swimming lake and a large activity building but we did not go into it. They have a set of nice cabins for people to rent who don't have RVs. You need to make reservation through Reserve America and there is a discount for our National Park Senior passes so the two nights cost us under $30. All-in-all we liked it and plan to go back in the winter months. We camped at Mike Roess Gold Head Branch State Park in a Motorhome.

Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge, Acworth, Georgia

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

Red Top Mountain State Park Review Stayed the second week of May 2017 in a 35 foot class A motorhome. First, all the good things. Beautiful location very woodsy campground. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Views of the lake are incredible. Hiking trails are phenomenal. Iron Mill trail is open for biking & hiking, it was wonderful. Stayed part of the week in a green back-in site and rest of the week in Red pull through site. Saw deer almost every day. Very relaxing & enjoyable. Bathrooms were clean & well-maintained. Negatives: If you are not comfortable driving your rig on tight narrow roads with trees on both sides, stick to the Red pull-through sites especially if your rig is larger than 30 feet. Check-in is at 1 PM and strictly enforced. There is only 1 RV parking space at the visitor center, if you arrive with another RV, one of you are stuck on the road near a curve (dangerous). Their reservation system is frustrating as you cannot reserve a specific site. You can only reserve a color coded site type. The Red pull through sites are the largest but have no lake views from the sites ( Lake views easily accidentally via short hike). Some of the back-in sites are very challenging due to curved narrow roads along with the trees and boulders. No sewer hookups. The dump station was easily accessible and well-maintained. Laundry facility was robust and clean. We did not go to the beach area at the lake. Dog-friendly campground with easy access to the hiking trails for dog walking. Sites have fire-rings. Sites were hard-packed dirt and somewhat level. On our back-in site there was only a 30 amp service but pull through site had 50 amp. Leveling at the back-in site required addition of leveling pads to our hydraulic jacks at rear of RV to get level. All-in-all a very nice campground. We camped at Red Top Mountain State Park & Lodge in a Motorhome.

Cedar Key RV Resort, Cedar Key, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for 3 nights 2/16-2/19 2017. We really enjoyed this RV Park. Probably the friendliest people we have run into staying at an RV Park. Staff was very friendly and they offer staff to guide you to your site if needed. The park is well-laid out with concrete pads and ample space with grass between sites. Park is very clean. They have a large clubhouse with a full kitchen. Pool is heated and had Pool aerobics class on Saturday. Also free pancake breakfast. They offer a community firepit as there are not individual firepits on your site. Park is easy to navigate even with big rigs. Most of the campers appeared to be seasonal and return every year. Bath house was very nice and clean. Very dog friendly and provide a small fence dag park but there were plenty of nice green paths near the woods to walk your dog. We would rate this park a 10 except for the cable TV and wi-fi. Small selection of cable TV channels and channels were fuzzy at out site. The wi-fi was slow. Their rates vary by season and we paid approx. $43/night with our Passport America discount. We would definitely stay here again & look forward to going back. We camped at Cedar Key RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Cedar Key is about 8 miles away and is an example of 'Old Florida' without fast food restaurants and stores. We had lunch at Carlin's Steakhouse on the water and would recommend the fish & Chips and the fried Shrimp. We also had lunch another day at Tony's for their world famous clam chowder and it was excellent. Also stopped at Holey Moley donut shop and their donuts looked amazing but we did not indulge.

Pellicer Creek Campground, St Augustine, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at Pellicer Creek in our 35 foot motorhome along with two other couples and their motorhomes for Thanksgiving in 2016. It is a quaint small campground (30 sites). It is easily accessible off of I-95 and US1 with close proximity to St Augustine and Daytona. The staff is great and go out of their way to insure you are settled and comfortable with your site. We were not able to secure 3 sites together but the campground is small enough that it did not matter. It is located right off of US1 and there may be some road noise if you have a site at the front but those sites appeared to be held by longer term campers. The campground was homey and quiet. Fire rings are provided. We travel with 2 greyhounds who enjoy long walks. One minor drawback for us was the lack of walking or biking trails within the campground. (There are multiple places within a short drive that are available, including hiking trails and a park.) Sites were shaded and clean with full hookups. Great cable TV but requires hooking us one of their boxes. (Staff will gladly hook it up for you!) This is a great place away from the hustle and bustle of St Augustine and Daytona Beach but close enough to visit them daily. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Pellicer Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Jekyll Island Campground, Jekyll Island, Georgia

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

We had to make reservation way in advance to obtain two sites together as we planned to camp with our Daughter's family. We stayed the weekend of Sept 23, 2016. We had 2 pull through sites near the front next to each other. We camped in a 35' Class A and our daughter's family in a Popup. The girls at the front desk are nice & friendly. Our first impression was that the sites were very close together and the roads are narrow. I honestly don't think they could have squeezed in anything else in this campground. The sites are sandy with lots of leaf debris. Very dirty, we had to wash our feet constantly. Whole campground looks cluttered & messy. The whole campground is shaded due to abundant trees throughout. The mosquitos were horrendous. If you ventured out without strong repellant on expect to be covered in mosquitos within minutes. We travel with 2 greyhounds and the natural repellant we had for them did not work. We have no idea why the campground did not spray for Mosquitos with the Zika virus scare going on. Because of the mosquitos, we had to drive everywhere and were not able to take advantage of the walking/bike paths. The campground hosts do not guide you to your sites and the narrow roads are tricky. No Pool, no dog park/area. Our RV site was $48 and the Popup was $42 plus $10 fee to get on Island. Driftwood beach (can't swim there because of high bacterial levels) was pleasant to walk and scenic with all the large driftwood. We had dinner at the Driftwood Bistro restaurant and were very pleased with it. We visited the Georgia Sea Turtle center & the historic district. If you are a tent camper, their areas appeared much nicer and spaced out. If you drive a big Rig, be careful on Riverview drive, there are some low hanging branched you need to steer around. We won't camp here again. We camped at Jekyll Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Williston Crossings RV Resort, Williston, Florida

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here over Labor day weekend in a 35 foot class A motorhome. We arrived the day after Hurricane Herme went through. We had an escort to our assigned site but found out there was no electricity available due to the storm. We were quickly relocated by escort to a different site. Our site was paved with a grassy area located off our front door. Spacing between sites was ok and varied depending on whether your site was back-in or pull through. We were impressed with the courteous service received at check-in and during setup. The campground had a lot of small debris from the storm when we arrived but the staff worked diligently while we were there to clean everything up. This is a beautiful upscale large RV park. We really liked the 3 different dedicated dog areas provided even though 2 of them were muddy from the storm (they were planting grass seed while we were there that should greatly improve that. They had a dedicated area where you could wash a car or RV close to the back 2 dog areas. The grounds were beautiful along with a really nice pool. We will definitely plan on staying here again (hopefully without a hurricane before we get there....). One of the best parks we have ever stayed in. We camped at Williston Crossings RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We tried hiking at Paynes Prairie State Park in Gainesville but the trails were covered in debris from Hurricane Herme passing through and the mosquitos were horrendous even with repellent on. We did go up in the observation tower and spotted Buffalo and horses on the Prairie in the distance. Bring Binoculars if you go. Williston RV Park is an easy drive to all the things to do around Gainesville.

Tropical Palms Resort, Kissimmee, Florida

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

We stayed here for the weekend in a Motorhome along with our Daughter's family in a site next to us in their pop-up. We had one of the grassy sites near the back of the park. Some reviewers have complained about the narrow roads but we are in a 35 foot motorhome towing a jeep and the roads are fine. You do have to find your own site. We stayed after some heavy rains and were moved off our original reserved site when we arrived but the new sites were fine. They do have better premium sites that we will try next time. Park was clean. The person who helped us with our reservations was superb and even came out of the back to welcome us. The sites we had were somewhat close together which is why I rated it less. Good place to stay if you need to be close to the amusement parks. We have already made another reservation for Sept 2016. We camped at Tropical Palms Resort in a Motorhome.

North Beach Camp Resort, St Augustine, Florida

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $51.00
Overall Rating:

We camped here is a 35' class A motorhome. Our site (127) was somewhat narrow in that we didn't have really have room for our screen tent. Most sites are shaded with beach vegetation between the sites. We camped here the end of June during a heat wave and it was very hot. Sites are packed sand so be ready for the beach experience. Getting to the beach requires crossing A1A which could be quite busy at times. Walking distance through the campground to Aunt Kate's restaurant on Intercostal side.

If you are approaching the campground from the south, make sure you drive in the first entrance so you can pull your rig in to park and register. There is only room for about two large rigs in the parking area where you register.

Bring a water regulator. Water pressure is very good (high) and caused a small leak in our new RV. (We did not have a water regulator.)

Campground is between Intercostal and the Ocean so you get the best of both worlds and you can watch the Sun coming up on the Beach and going down on the Intercostal. Very friendly staff.

We travel with two greyhounds and the campground and beach were pet friendly. We'll probably try to go back in the winter. We camped at North Beach Camp Resort in a Motorhome.
