Not our favorite KOA. Not as well maintained as most KOA's. Gave us a site which shared a patio with the office. We asked to move and were sent to the area with mostly long term residents. It was pretty sketchy. Lots of confederate flags and weird activity. Would not return.

Trails End is a good name for this park. It is in a valley in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains up a valley with lots of old barns and cow pastures. The park itself has good and bad, like a lot of parks. The good are the views, tranquility and friendly residents. There are two rows of back in sites. One row backs onto a pretty stream with nice landscaping and the other backs onto a well cared for lawn. Interior roads and RV sites are gravel. Most sites have concrete patios and picnic tables. Sites are pretty short. Any RV over 40 feet wouldn't fit. Many residents are seasonal (summer) and head south for the winter. Negatives are lack of amenities. No office and no bathrooms or showers. Probably the first park I have been to without bathrooms. There is a building that serves as a clubhouse and laundry facility, but that is it. There is a large dump trailer for garbage. When you arrive there is a bulletin board with your name and site number. The camp host will find you in a golf cart and give you an orientation and collect money. We liked the location, about half way between Asheville and Great Smoky Mountains NP. I wouldn't go there if my RV was over 40 feet or I needed restrooms or showers. Hook ups, including cable TV were fine. Fun being surrounded by old barns and cows. Would have given a higher rating if they had more amenities.

We stayed at this park for one night. It is located in a rural area west of Durham, NC off I-40. This is a new park and is surrounded by woods. The sites and interior roads are crushed rock separated by lawn and mulched areas with trees. Our pull-through site had plenty of room. The park was pretty and very peaceful. No cable TV and too many trees for satellite, but lots of TV stations over the antenna from the Releigh-Durham area.

We stayed at the New Bern KOA for three nights. We opted for one of their fancy pull-through sites and it was very nice. Long gravel pull through with a cement patio. We had a table, four chairs and a patio umbrella. The site had a great view of the river over wet lands. The park had a fishing pier on the river. There was a nice store and clean rest rooms. As is typical of KOA's there was a lot stuff for kids to do.

We stayed at this park for like three nights. This is a brand new RV park and it's still a work in progress. The park is mostly done. There is a small pool and a bathhouse next to the pool. A second bathhouse and laundry facility are not quite done. There are a variety of sites in the park. All are grass with a crushed rock pad for the car. Hook ups are in and include cable TV. The only problem for transient visitors is that the owner has decided to sell yearly leases on his nicest sites. These are sites that are on bay, or overlook a salt water marsh which borders the park. A majority of these sites have new leased and owners are building permanent structures and modifying their travel trailers or fifth wheels to be permanent structures. We were in one of the sites over looking the marsh that was not yet leased and it was very nice. The owner says he plans to keep a number of the interior sites available for short term rentals. Maybe the best feature is that the park contains a boat basin with a boat ramp and moorage. A number of the permanent residents are keeping their boats there. We thought the 75.00 price was a little steep for what we got. Harkers Island is close to Beaufort, NC and the ferry service to Cape Lookout and Shackleford Banks is only a couple miles from the park.

We stayed at this park for three nights. The park is a typical KOA with RV sites, cabins and tent sites. It was very clean and well maintained. Our RV site was grass with a gravel area to park our car. We had a picnic table and plenty of room. Nice pool and lots of activities for kids. Overall a pleasant park.

Large campground off highway 17 about 20 minutes from Charlestown. Park is mostly grass with mature oak trees. Spaces were not real private but had plenty of room. There was a lot of open space that was not used for RV sites. There was a small pool, but it was a ways from most of the RV sites near the highway. Hook ups and WIFI were fine. Convenient to Charlestown and other local attractions. We would stay there again c.

This is my first perfect 10. This park is 40 years old and still great. Sites are privately owned and way above what you get in many parks costing much more. Starting with the reservation process once you give them your dates you see what is available with pictures. Once you arrive you can move to another available site if you wish. Our site was pavers and lawn with plenty of nice landscaping giving us privacy. Lots of mature trees, including a wide variety of palms. We had a table and chairs and a nice view of their lake. The park has a beautiful pool, six perfect tennis courts, and an exercise facility that was not the usual joke. WIFI was great. The owners seem to run the show and keep everything up to high standards. One of the owners told me that for the past 40 years they have enforced a rule that all motorhomes must leave the park (if only for a few hours) every 90 days to prevent the creep toward permanent structures. All sites were nice and some are spectacular with owners going all out with landscaping. We stayed for a week and had a great time. Also a bargain for $75 a night. We have spent a lot more and received a lot less.

We stayed at this park for five nights. This is a campground, not an RV park with amenities. It is a flat, heavily wooded area where trees have been removed to make interior roads and RV sites. Utilities were put in, a couple of bathhouses were built and that's about it. Not many plants except the trees and not much privacy. All sites are back-in and campground hosts will help you park. The entire park is dirt that is covered with a thin layer of leaves and pine needles. The trees are pretty and there is lots of shade which was nice because it was hot when we were there. Hookups and cable TV were fine. The park is a little dirty and buggy. It is still worth a stay. It is the only venue on Jekyll Island, which is a wonderful destination. A number of great beaches with good parking, extensive biking and walking trails that cover the whole island and tours of the beautiful and interesting historical district. Development has been controlled and this Island is much more peaceful than its neighbors.

Stayed four nights. We had a concrete pull-through site with a patio and picnic table. Somewhat more space and privacy than a lot of similar parks. There was a lot of space inside the park that was not used for RV parking and lots of trees and native plants. Also a number of small fields and a pond. Great for the dog. Yes there were couple of roosters, and they did start crowing about 4:30 AM. If you are a light sleeper you might need earplugs. The owner was very helpful and friendly. No cable TV. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this park for one night. We had a large pull through site and did not have to disconnect our car. Staff was helpful. They took us to our site and help helped us get parked. The park has easy access from the freeway and it's easy to navigate inside the park. As the name implies the park as many mature oak trees. Some are apparently over 350 years old and are beautiful. The park is very well-maintained, leaves are raked and they are continuously planting new plants. There is one giant oak tree in the middle of the park and they have made the area into a beautiful park. It is almost worth a trip to this park just to see the trees. If I were to return to the Tallahassee area I would definitely stay at this park again. I

We stayed at Camp Gulf for a week. It was very expensive, costing $120 per night. The park was more like an average $30-$40 a night park with access to a very nice beach on the gulf coast. We felt like we were paying an extra $80 a night just for the beach access. The park is about three blocks long and stretches all the way from Highway 98 to the beach. The majority of the sites have no view of the ocean and are a pretty long walk to the beach. There were 15 to 20 spaces right on the beach which would've been fun, but they cost over $200 a night. Spaces are very close together without much privacy. The landscaping is neglected and there were dying shrubs and leaves on the ground everywhere. Our neighbors slide was only 3 feet from our patio and we had to listen to their television every time we went outside. The park was also full of barking dogs, screaming children and noisy trucks. It was not at all peaceful. We have stayed in a few parks that approach this park in cost and they were much nicer. They had privately owned sites that were beautifully maintained and many amenities. If I were to return to the South Walton Beach area I would stay in a less expensive park and drive to the beach. Beach access and free parking are plentiful along this part of the golf coast. The staff at the park were friendly and very helpful. Restrooms were clean and there were two swimming pools. There were planned activities for children. If we had been traveling with children I might have given the park a slightly higher rating.

We stayed at Coastline for two weeks. It was our second stay at this park. It is one of our favorites because of the park itself and also the area. It is a newer park with many amenities. The interior roads and parking spaces are attractive brown crushed rock. Each space has a very nice patio made of pavers surrounded by grass. Most sites have a view of the water. Each site has a picnic table. Some have barbecues. There is a nice pool and a great clubhouse with a kitchen for guests to use. This park has the nicest bathrooms and showers I have ever seen in an RV park. Highway 98 runs in front of the park but there is a little noise from the traffic. Staff are attentive and helpful. The park also had the best Wi-Fi I have experienced due date. Part of the attractiveness of this park is the area. Apalachicola is a charming town. It is the center of the oyster industry for Florida and also has a large shrimp fleet. There is an incredibly large number of great in Apalachicola. There is also a great older architecture and interesting shops. A cross a short bridge is Saint George Island with one of the best beaches on the gulf coast.A short distance away his Cape San Blas with more spectacular beaches. Best of all the area is not plagued with the congestion and traffic found further along the coast in Panama City Beach and Destin. Possibly my only criticism is there somewhat draconian reservation policy which requires payment in full upon making a reservation with no refunds. They will let you change your dates if they have room.

This is an older Park that needs a little TLC, but it was pleasant and clean. We were there for one night and had a large pull though site with plenty of room for the motorhome and car. Lots of mature trees with moss which was pretty. Looked like a majority of longer term residents. The overnighters were together in large pull through spaces near the office. Access was easy from I-75. We would stay there again.

We stayed at this park for a month in February. The rate we paid is based on their monthly rate. This is not your typical RV park, but it was OK. The park has about 300 spaces and only about 50 are available for transient guests. The remaining spots are occupied by permanent residences that are constructed out of vintage (and I mean vintage) travel trailers. These old trailers had bedrooms and a large porches added. Most were pretty cute and had been regularly painted. Many had extensive landscaping. The predominate mode of transportation around the park seemed to be three wheeled bicycles. A large percentage of the permanent residents were French-speaking Canadians who pretty much kept to themselves. This was a very active park with live entertainment or disco two or three nights a week. This was in a pavilion in the middle of the park replete with flashing lights strobe lights, and music often in French. Also water aerobics in the pool most mornings to the same tape. Sometimes it all kind of seemed like a David Lynch movie. We had a nice large pull through space with plenty a room. Parking was on gravel but we had a nice concrete patio, a picnic table, and the space was surrounded by a well-maintained lawn. About the only difference from a more typical park was that we were looking at these converted travel trailers rather than other RVs. There was a very nice swimming pool and extensive library and clubhouse. Residents had a busy schedule of golf and horseshoes. Probably the best two things about this park where the cost and the location. The monthly rate was about half of what most other parks charge in this area. Also the parks location on the south side of Naples was perfect, about 15 minutes from either downtown Naples or Marco Island. Not as much traffic congestion is on the north side of Naples. The Park has also been recently purchased by Sun RV Resorts and they are making extensive improvements to the infrastructure.
