Milton / Gulf Pines KOA, Milton, Florida

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

We've camped here twice in a 31' travel trailer. Both times, the staff was super friendly and helpful. They have a "Follow Me" golf cart with a staff member that leads you directly to the site.

The sites are pretty close together; with very little foliage for privacy.

The nightly rate isn't cheap by any means, but if you're looking to take CHILDREN camping, this is the spot! LOTS of activities for the children. Therefore, there are lots of kids running around and riding bikes. The campground was pretty quiet both times we stayed; especially at night. Everything seemed very clean, safe and secure. The cable TV was nice for when it rained. We camped at Milton / Gulf Pines KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Buccaneer State Park, Waveland, Mississippi

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Well, we read all the reviews, and even after reading the negative ones, we decided to book our annual RV vacation at Buccaneer. We camped for 1 week in a 31' rig with two slide-outs, in spot #117, which is in the Treasure Bay Loop of the park. There were plenty of trees in that loop, so plenty of shade in the AM and PM. Yes, the train tracks were very close-by, but it didn't bother us. We like the trains. As for the campsites themselves, they leave a lot to be desired. There was very little grass, and the dirt (dried mud) had TONS of trash and debris embedded in it. And we're not talking post-Katrina debris. We're talking lots of trash, broken glass, pop tops, bottle caps, etc. It seemed that everywhere I looked in this park, there were cigarette butts.

The paved RV pad was very narrow and drops-off; so you have to set up your awning and patio rug / chairs on top of dirt. Which turns into a lot of mud when it rains. Most campgrounds have a paved pad for the patio area. As others have said, it is unbelievable that paying campers have to pay to use the wading pool. I can see charging for the water park (which was nice) but the wading pool should be included for paying campers.

There was very little patrolling / oversight from the rangers and staff. Quiet hours are completely ignored by many of the campers. Screaming, yelling, arguing and loud music at all hours of the night. People were letting their dogs run free more than I've ever seen anywhere else.

The park is not very well maintained; including the showers and restrooms. This place seemed like chaos most of the time. It seems like we enjoyed our vacation when we were away from the campsite, or inside our camper. We won't be camping at Buccaneer State Park again. We camped at Buccaneer State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

When approaching the park, take Lakeshore Drive to get to the entrance. The RR crossing there is nearly flat.
