Like most Florida state parks we've seen, this one was outstanding. Easy pull thru sites are quiet, have water and electric, and are near the glass bottom boat attraction. We will stop here again on our way to our winter stop further south.

Date of Stay:

Very nice setting about 4 1/2 miles off I-77 on a long windy road that needs lots of work. Looks like a seasonal place for weekenders. We had a long mostly level pull through with good utilities. We would stop here again.

Date of Stay:

We really enjoyed staying here over the Labor Day weekend. Filled up Friday night. Lots of family groups, campfires, etc. By dark, the place calmed down and was quiet -- no traffic noise and we heard one train in the distance. Great sunset picture opportunities. Seems to be a beach, but their web info states there is no beach. Wish they had more utilities but we managed.

Date of Stay:

This was a find for us. We had no idea that such a place could be found so close to Memphis. Prefer to the Tunica alternative. Easy access from all major highways. Lovely concrete sites. Rolling river out the door! Will return.

Date of Stay:

5 miles off I-40. It has two camping areas, one on lake with water and electric and one with larger sites with full hookups. Shaded and quiet. Busy on weekends. Recommend.

Date of Stay:

Gravel level sites. Some 50 amp. Attractive pool. Close to famous tourist attraction steak house. Easy on/off and across from Pilot station. Traffic noise mostly a dull hum and most noticeable with windows open. Recommend.

Date of Stay:

Easy gravel sites. BBQ restaurant on site, and gas station with convenience store close by. A few blocks from a casino and 12 miles from exit to Santa Fe's St. Francis drive, which goes to plaza. Close to road but traffic and noise dies down after dark. No bells and whistles but very functional.

Date of Stay:

This campground seems to be closed.

For the price it was great. The lake it sits next to is basically drained. It was difficult to get satellite. Sites were haphazard and not very level. However, it was a pretty and quiet location. We will stay again for the Wild Horse Golf Club.

Date of Stay:

Good price for full hookup site overlooking pleasant lake. First come, first served, but we had no trouble getting a spot arriving at about 3 pm. We did not want to unhook and there were a limited number of sites long enough. Very family friendly. Sites fairly close together. Most have shade but good southern sky available. Lots of wood smoke. Nice.

Date of Stay:

Easy access from I -80. Friendly folks in the office. Inviting looking pool and attractive surroundings. Many sites are concrete pads. A bit of highway noise or I'd have rated a 10. Stayed overnight and would return.

We stayed here as an overnight between home and FL. Lots of easy pull thrus. They do a booming snowbird business during some months I'm sure. A bit pricey but worth it..

The best part about this place was the price. When I made my reservation one month in advance for two nights, they said they had a pull through available. When we arrived, instead we were put on a back-in end site that was spacious but had backwards utilities. We backed in perpendicularly and never used the sewer. Our hose and electic were stretched to the max. They have a pool but the cover was always on even though it was mid-80's. About all that's available but I guess we were lucky to have it.

Date of Stay:

Rate is based on three month stay. This park is in a great quiet location just far enough from US 27. Shopping is close, and four of the several golf courses in the area are close by. The wonderful bike path and state park are just down the street. The management is very good and the residents are friendly. Many activities are available for an enjoyable stay. Each RV spot has good utilities and a concrete pad. Electric rates seem reasonable and propane is available on site. Aesthetically, the permanent trailers are very nice. The RV section could be better looking, but they do the job. For that reason I did not give this park a 10. We will stay again as the price was right.

This city owned park is adjacent to the city pool and playground and is associated with the coal mine tours and museum. It is an interesting area. The comments about entry roads and sharp turns have merit, so if those kinds of things bother you, I'd suggest you stay elsewhere. We managed with truck and 30 TT but had to go into 4 wheel drive to get up the final hill and turn. Sites are very narrow as well but plenty long. We found it to be very quiet. May stay here again.
