Fort McAllister State Park, Richmond Hill, Georgia

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

Fort McAllister is located near Richmond Hill, Georgia about 20 miles or so south of Savannah. It is perhaps 15 miles off of I-95 so very quiet and remote. The campground itself is at the end of a long causeway. The sites are mostly very large with many pull throughs and generally level. They are rustic and it would be difficult to find your way at night as it is not clear where the edges of the sites are or the driveway in. Some of the roads in have tight turns and might be difficult for large rigs though there certainly are large rigs here. The restrooms are clean but very dated. They are in definite need of refurbishment. The causeway is also very rough - not so bad for the RV but very rough for bike riding. This is a tough place to be without a car as it is very remote and difficult to get far on a bike. There are no bike paths here. The tent sites here look very nice - spacious and all with raised platforms for pitching the tent and plenty of space for parking a couple of cars. There are plenty of camp hosts here and they are friendly and helpful. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

Fort Clinch State Park, Fernandina Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely state park. The drive in is about 2-3 miles and along a "canopy" road of live oaks with hanging Spanish moss - just beautiful. There are two campgrounds here - the Atlantic beach site which has about 20 sites and is the first campground you come to. The River site is about 3 miles in and has more sites. The river campground is also the older one so the restrooms are a bit dated but still quite nice, clean and functional. The river campground offers more privacy and has a small beach at the end where you can watch the sunset over the Amelia river. The beach campground is less private but we actually preferred it here - perhaps because its a short walk to the beach and you can hear the ocean from your site, reducing the noise from any neighbors. The beach campground is newer and the facilities a bit more modern though both were very clean. This is a very popular park and can be hard to get into. There are plenty of places to ride a bike, walk, hike, etc. There is also the Fort to visit which is very interesting and educational. Downtown Fernandina Beach is very historic and a great walking town with nice restaurants and shops. There is a trolley here too which can take you on a tour of the area. We camped at Fort Clinch State Park in a Motorhome.

Blue Spring State Park, Orange City, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Blue Springs is a very popular park; not only for camping but also for day visitors who come to see the manatees or just enjoy the park. Upon entering the park, you can wait in line a long time, even if you are already checked in as there is only one lane to enter the park. We're told that on busy weekends, the backup can be as long as 60 cars! Its a beautiful spot and most of the sites are pretty private. Some are quite small and difficult to get into; so big rigs should make sure they can fit. We saw many big rigs that had to park their cars or trucks almost off the road just to squeeze them into their site. The springs are beautiful and well worth the short trip down to the water. They offer cruises on the St. Johns River or you can just walk along the boardwalk or bike along the bike path or trails. There is a small gift shop and cafe there too. The park is off of Route 17 / 92 which can be pretty busy. The turn into the park road from the highway is pretty tight. But the park is back a few miles from the highway so there is no road noise. There is a train that goes pretty close however. Our site was advertised as gravel but that had disappeared long ago and it was pretty soft sand making it difficult to level. Once we did, it was a great spot however. We noted that some of the sites do have hard packed gravel and that would be more desirable. We camped at Blue Spring State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Griffin State Park, Fruitland Park, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice spot in the middle of a busy area in Florida. Its very convenient to the Villages and once you are in the park, the road noise is not bad considering how close you are to the highway. The park is quite small and, in my opinion, not suited for large rigs. Most of the campers here were in small Class C's (like us), tents, or small trailers. Our site was quite sloping and backed up to a wet area. It had recently rained and we had a small "pond" behind us that evaporated before we left. Luckily it didn't rain while we were there or our site may have been washed out. The restrooms were very clean. They are dated but functional. We camped at Lake Griffin State Park in a Motorhome.

The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads, Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is a good stopover for one night, about 1 mile off I-95. It was surprisingly busy when we were there; the office said they had a lot of contract workers staying one month at a time. The sites were level and many were on a concrete pad; a few were gravel. The sites are close together but are almost all pull-throughs so very convenient for large rigs with a towed vehicle. We noted that the restrooms only had a few toilets each which was surprising given the number of campsites. Perhaps most who stay here use their own facilities as the sites are full hookup. The restrooms and showers were very clean. We camped at The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads in a Motorhome.

Lums Pond State Park, Bear, Delaware

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a good overnight stop, especially for snowbirds heading south from the Northeast as it is one of the few campgrounds that is open year round with electric and water. It is convenient to the highway but still fairly quiet. Sites are fairly private and the restrooms were clean. The park has recently been renovated and gravel pads have been added to the side of the driveways. This was nice but because of the hard freeze this winter, and rain while we were there, the gravel turned into a couple of inches of mud. The park is on a pond and looks to be a nice spot for the spring, summer and fall for those looking for more than an overnight. We camped at Lums Pond State Park in a Motorhome.

Atlantic Oaks Campground, Eastham, Massachusetts

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for 5 nights during the off season (October) during a beautiful weather window. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the sites; they are all pull-through and spacious. Although the campground is right off Route 6, it was not noisy. The sites closest to the bike trail (back of the campground) would be the quietest. We did not hook up to cable, though it was available for free. Internet / wifi was decent - not super speedy, but better than a lot of campgrounds. Restrooms were very clean and there were plenty. The showers are separate, private, and unisex. Laundry facilities are available here too. The campground has a small store selling the basic necessities, and also firewood. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. The only slight negative was the sometimes loud radio playing in the restroom facility. We could not hear it at our site, however. We camped at Atlantic Oaks Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The National Seashore Visitor Center is 0.5 miles south. Its worth visiting here to get information and maps for exploring the rest of the seashore and beaches. There is also a trail to walk around Nauset Marsh. The Cape Cod Rail Trail runs in back of the campground. There are plenty of stores and restaurants nearby. Provincetown, Wellfleet, Chatham, Orleans are all worth visiting and not far away. There is an Enterprise car rental in Orleans which is very convenient if you don't tow a car.

Mystic KOA, North Stonington, Connecticut

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

This is a convenient stop off I-95; it also is one of the rare campgrounds in New England that is open year-round. As we find with most KOAs, the sites are too close together. We had to listen to our neighbor's very noisy furnace all night long. Since we were there off-season, the pool wasn't open. We camped at Mystic KOA in a Motorhome.

Kiptopeke State Park, Cape Charles, Virginia

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

A very nice, large park. We were able to pick out our own site out of 3 loops that are mostly full service. A few are just electric and water. The sites appear not to be very level but if you pull up far enough, they level off. That is - the land rises up away from the road, so you have to pull back far enough to get to the level spots. This is a beautiful location with lots of trails and water access. It is right over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel heading north. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Bathrooms were very clean and there is a laundry facility provided as well. We camped at Kiptopeke State Park in a Motorhome.

OBX Campground, Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We were there during the off season so did not have many neighbors. Presumably because it was off-season, the office had limited hours. The park is in a nice location - right on the water and off the busy main drag but convenient to stores / restaurants. Its $70 in season which is pricey and the $50 off-season rate was pricey as well. The showers and restrooms are very nice and clean. We camped at OBX Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Saltwater Grille was very nice and you could walk there from the campground. As others have said, the outside ambiance is lacking, but once inside, its very nice. The park is close to the Wright Brothers memorial which is worth visiting but note that the visitor center is under renovation until sometime in 2018. Its worth the drive through the national seashore all the way down to Cape Hatteras lighthouse and the town of Hatteras. You can take a ferry past that if you want to see it all. Jockey Ridge State park is nearby too and fun to hike up the sand dunes. You will likely see hang gliders here too getting lessons.

Cedar Point Campground USFS, Cedar Point, North Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $19.00
Overall Rating:

This park has a fairly small number of sites. Each site is paved and has a side area with gravel for tents. The sites are well laid out so that you are not lined up with your neighbor and there is plenty of space. Some of the spots are shared - that is, separate electric panels, but shared picnic table and fire ring. Water is not available on site, but there are several spots to get water thoroughout the campground There are nice, easy trails near the campground, and there is also water access. GPS does not find the exact location of the campground so be sure to look for VFW Road, which is off of Route 58. The campground is off of VFW road. It doesn't say "Cedar Point Campground" just Croatan Forest so it can be confusing. Signage coming from the north on 58 is better than from the south. Showers are unisex and separate from the toilets. Each one is private. Water pressure is extremely low and you need to push the button every 20-30 seconds to get more water. You also need to be quite patient for hot water. There are lots of cobwebs high up in the showers and the bathrooms. No soap is provided in the bathroom and it is quite dark. The campground is in a good location for exploring Beaufort (45 minutes away). We camped at Cedar Point Campground USFS in a Motorhome.

Edisto Beach State Park, Edisto Island, South Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in the Live Oaks campground as the beach campground is still closed from Hurricane Matthew. This is a small park and some of the sites are close together and some are like a double so friends can camp near each other. There are trails here, but only one is open due to the hurricane. The water in Edisto Beach is salty and is treated because of the excess salt. The town deems it safe to drink but the town also provides water that has gone through a reverse osmosis facility. This is available at the fire station downtown where you can get 5 gallons at a time. You have to bring your own container though as you can't hook up a hose to the spigot. The campground is about 1/2 mile from town. The town itself is pretty small but the beach is worth visiting. There is a decent Bi-Lo grocery store there, one gas station and a liquor store. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Huntington Beach State Park, Murrells Inlet, South Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

This park is quite large and includes a long beautiful beach, with 3 separate access points (2 from the campground and 1 from the parking lot across from the office / store). The road into the park is long and goes over a causeway. On either side of the causeway you will see many birds (pelicans, herons, ibises, etc.) as well as a resident alligator. There are many trails throughout the park. The beach is also suitable for bike riding as it is hard packed sand and quite wide. Route 17 is busy and it can be difficult to pull in and out of the campground, especially if you have a large rig, or are towing. During the winter months, the gate is locked from 6 pm to 6 am, so if you do not arrive prior to that time, you will need the code to open the padlock. The code is changed once per month. The crazy thing is that the gate is close to the busy highway so you don't have much room to pull in. There are 3 main loops and the campground has some sites that are full service, but most are electric and water only. There are also some rustic tent sites and a back loop that is shadier. We preferred the sites along the right going in as they back up to the beach side and seem to be roomier. Those wanting satellite access and / or full service might prefer the inside loops. Most of the sites were a pretty good size. All of the interior roads are paved. They are working on one of the bathhouses (in the far loop) so that was out of service the entire time we were there (apparently the rebuild is taking 2-plus months). Thus there is high demand for toilets and showers in the 2 other bathhouses so you sometimes have to wait. They were cleaned every day but not sparkling clean and sometimes toilet paper ran out during the weekend. Sometimes there were issues with the showers not working (handle broken, etc.) These got fixed but its clear that they need some work. In spite of some negatives, its a beautiful location and we would definitely stay there again. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah, Georgia

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

A lovely park about 30 minutes outside Savannah proper. The campground has 4 loops and it was recommended that we stay in loop D which is the furthest back and most private. All the sites looked pretty spacious. There is still some tree work going on to remove trees and limbs that were destroyed during Hurricane Matthew. The bathhouse was quite clean and also includes a laundry facility. The campground has a bus that takes you downtown Savannah but only on Fridays and Saturdays. Uber does come here though and we used that to go to the visitor center and take trolley tours of the city. Beautiful city to stroll around with all the parks and nice restaurants as well as beautiful houses. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Manatee Springs State Park, Chiefland, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

A very nice park. We were able to get one night at the last minute, and I think because of the late request, they gave us an ADA-rated site. The state is required to keep a number of these available each night, but by a certain time, they can let some of them go. So the end result was that we had a nice paved site. It was close to the bathrooms and for some reason, the toilet flush is so loud here, that we could here it in the RV. The park itself is lovely with many nice trails and a boardwalk down to the water where you can take a pontoon boat tour. We did not see manatees while here, but they apparently do come by. The park has a great barbecue vendor on sight - really good food. There are a few different loops in the park and most seem to have fairly spacious sites. We camped at Manatee Springs State Park in a Motorhome.
