River Creek Campground, Rutherfordton, North Carolina

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

Stopped by here on the way South from Asheville. Nice little park that gave us a two night stay with a BOGO Passport America discount. Love getting that discount! We had a site right on the Broad River which was really running and sounded wonderful. We had the row to ourselves the first night and had a lovely campfire with the full moon rising and the river rushing by.

The site would have been really tight if we had neighbors. You would have their sewer hook up 5 feet from your picnic table. We toured Lake Lure and the surrounding towns for a lovely day trip. The Rocky Broad River that feeds the lake was beautiful! The river spots looked great for tent camping. We camped at River Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

The Lake Lure marina only offered a tour at 2 pm the day we were there so we missed out. They need a minimum of 6 people, and the cost was $15 pp. The park next to the marina had a great walkway for a short side trip.

Asheville East KOA, Swannanoa, North Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We arrived just before Halloween weekend and got the very last spot. Site #11 up on the hill where the permanent campers/workers live. Lots more quiet than down in the "zoo". Tree were beautiful in their fall colors. Loved the full hookup after our last stop. Especially with the dusting of snow for our heat pumps. Lots of squirrel/bird TV for our cats to view thru the coach windows. The park emptied out and was lovely Monday morning. Great trails around the lakes for cat walking. We camped at Asheville East KOA in a Motorhome.

The Blue Ridge parkway was conveniently right down the road. Such a stunning drive this year and an escape from the city bustle. Southbound was closed at MM #402 due to flooding. Hunter Banks Outfitters's is an amazing fly fishing shop! The town of Black Mountain was fun for a shopping day and the Blue Ridge Biscuit Company is a must for breakfast. Country roads galore to meander down and of course the Biltmore Estate with the worlds best ice cream are all nearby!

Perry KOA Campground, Perry, Florida

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Evacuating for Hurricane Irma along with the rest of Florida. Made reservations for 3 nights but decided to leave after the first night to move further West along with most of the other coaches and left by 9 am the next day. We only got a refund for one of the two remaining nights.... Spoke with two clerks, a manager, and was kicked up to the owner whom I never did speak with trying to straighten out the mess. Please don't charge me for what you don't provide and then give me the runaround when I try and resolve the problem.

This KOA is right off of US 19 and the pull thru spots are right at the entrance. Lots of coaches just passing thru. Perry is at a crossroads in Florida and this makes the campground convenient. We camped at Perry KOA Campground in a Motorhome.

Deals Famous Oyster House was delicious! We had shrimp fried and grilled and they were outstanding. The dozen oysters on the 1/2 shell we started with were ok but pricey at $15 per dozen. I would not get them next time. Entertaining sitting at the oyster bar and chatting with Devon our "bar tender" who shucked our oysters. "The finest people in the World walk through our doors".

Nature's Resort RV Park, Homosassa, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here 5 nights over the New Years Holiday so no discount offered. We had a site on the Superhighway as there was only one way in and one way out. Traffic was a constant stream at times with the cars and golf carts. My biggest pet peeve is cigarette butts! We picked up at least 75 just within our site alone. Butts are trash people! Not very nice sitting outside shuffling the trashy butts around. For $50 per night I expect a clean site. Also lots of trash in the woods behind our coach. The picnic table was moldy and sorta gross. Didn't ask for one as we were only here for a short time. Some of the sites were so close together it was silly, like sardines in a can. On the plus side I love 50 amp, Wi-Fi, cable TV, level sites and a concrete pad! We camped at Nature's Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Don't miss Shelly's Fish Market located at 5380 S. Boulevard Dr. in Homosassa. Great little market on the river with really fresh seafood. We got a big slab of swordfish, some jumbo white shrimp, and Habanero smoked fish dip. They were fantastic on the grill! Locals were in there picking up bushels of oysters and stone crab claws for the New Year's holiday. Open Thursday thru Sunday. Phone is 352 503 6882 Food truck in the parking lot but didn't get to try it out.

Black Bear Cove, Benton, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed 2 nights to fish the Hiawassee. The manager was really nice but the park needs a lot of work and a good cleanup. It is apparently just out of bankruptcy after 5 years. Also now known as Eagle Cove RV park now to clear up that confusion. Trash is my pet peeve with cigarette butts at the top of the list! Lots of those around, dead bugs in the bathrooms, broken picnic table, trash in the fire ring, dead landscaping, fields that needed mowing......etc. No cable and unlevel sites for $45 per night was just poor value. The park did get WiFi the day we arrived but you had to go up to the bathrooms to connect. They did not take credit cards as well. Lots of upgrades in the future plans according to Jim. Great potential with a beautiful location. ...... We camped at Black Bear Cove in a Motorhome.

Reliance fly shop was great but the river was way too warm for trout. The generation schedule was also not good. We did drive beautiful country back and dirt roads to our hearts content. The Amish vegetable stand had good stuff!

Toqua Campground, Vonore, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here in Toqua RV park for two nights on our way south. We had a very spacious site with all the room we could use. The RV Park was full on the weekend as we arrived on Saturday night with families enjoying the lake and their boats. There were lots of rules but that's a good thing because there was no junk lying around and it was very clean. Wi-Fi was average speed and no cable TV availability. We camped at Toqua Campground in a Motorhome.

We cruised Tail of the Dragon and lots of forest backroads. Great roads! We also went to Benton's bacon and Country hams and stocked up! Visited Fort Loudoun as it was so close to the park and the Wildlife Management Area nearby.

Norris Dam State Park, Rocky Top, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This park needs some TLC. We stayed in the west area in site #6. The approach to the camping was not too bad as we disconnected our Jeep at the office. The site was not level so we used boards under the front wheels as the leveling jacks could not compensate for the pitch. We couldn't get all the way back into the site as they had timbers that would interfere with our stairs when they opened. The bathrooms had tons of spiders everywhere! You had to be careful bending down in the shower or else you were in a web....I used the handicapped stall as it was the only shower that the temperature could be adjusted. Also used the hand held wand to spray the bugs away before getting in, had to put the sprayer on the rail as the holder didn't work. The screen windows had hundreds of dead bugs stuck to the outside. The walk to the showers went by sites with broken benches, trash and cigarettes in the firepits, and picnic tables that you would need to scrape the dirt and debris from underneath before using. The volleyball court had broken concrete pieces in the playing field...ouch. Simple neglect. ...I don't mind old outdated showers but clean is important! On the good side our site was spacious with beautiful trees! Loved hammocking. Not very many people in the campground which was lovely. We camped at Norris Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

Sprint coverage was great for a change! Loved watching all the park deer. We came to trout fish the Clinch from our kayaks but the Norris dam opened early each morning we were here. Got a few days in but were off the water by noon when the rising water chased us off. Enjoyed lunch at the Hoskins Soda Fountain and drug store!
