Shipshewana Campground - South Park, Shipshewana, Indiana

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

Very nice campground. We have a big rig and most sites are level. Interior roads easy to navigate. Peaceful. Two sides are horse farms and the back side is a dairy farm. We stayed three days but would stay longer if we could. If reserving online and your selection shows no/few sites available I would call them. Might have been a glitch but the system showed full so we called and were able to get in. When we arrived there were MANY MANY open spots throughout our stay that met our criteria. We camped at Shipshewana Campground - South Park in a Motorhome.

The Amish Ease market is very large and interesting. We ate at the Blue Gate and found it just OK despite all the hype. The food was good, so was the service. It did not have the "wow" factor I was expecting. This was the buffet lunch so maybe menu service is different.

Illinois Beach State Park, Zion, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

I have mixed feelings about this park. It is very nice with trees, walking path etc. and easy beach access. On the other hand, there is little maintenance. The bathrooms need updating. No soap is provided in the bathrooms. The shower is a push button you get water at whatever temp until it times out. There are beach concession buildings and showers that according to a local have been abandoned and boarded up for decades. They did frequently empty the trash cans. Staff was friendly. There is no charge to enter the main park which is adjacent to the camping area. There is a HUGE public parking area for the beach which is next to the campground. We saw some undesirables in that lot the first few days which we reported to staff. After that we saw more police presence and no more questionable activity. You can't stay longer than two weeks so no permanent folks. No sewer so most are there for a couple of days by my observation. We were there two weeks so dumped once and conserved after that and dumped on our way out. We were there for Memorial Day weekend and while it was full it was not crazy and neither was the beach area. A host told us they just became a no alcohol park (there are signs up). We did not witness any alcohol incidents although no one is naive enough to think there was NO alcohol in the park. Roads are easy to navigate in our big rig. Most sites are level but some have a slope so if you are in a large RV scout them out first. Some have more shading than others and that affects satellite reception. Staff patrols frequently. Sites are very wide and deep. Plenty of overflow parking. Our power was a 30 amp plug, but a sticker on the box said not to exceed 24 amps. We blew the breaker several times even though we were not using the A/C or high amp things all at once. The 50A sites are either handicapped paved sites or the 50A area which is side by side in an open paved lot with limited shade. It is like being in a Walmart parking lot with a power pedestal. We camped at Illinois Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Go to Louie's in Waukegan. It is a 70+ year old bar/restaurant that is like stepping back in time. I though Al Capone was going to walk in. The food is FANTASTIC. Portions generous and reasonable prices. Owner is very friendly. The bread is out of this world.

Tower Campground, Sioux Falls, South Dakota

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

We were here for three weeks getting residency and doing touristy things. This is a good place to do business in Sioux Falls. It is convenient to everything. If you are looking for a vacation spot keep going. There is traffic noise from the interstate as well as 12th street which is the main road into downtown. We had aircraft noise one day as the SD National Guard is based out of a nearby airport. The older west lot was closed during our stay. The back to back spots, where we were, are OK but tight if you have a big rig and toad. The perimeter spots are back in but very long and wide. If you need overflow parking get one of these although they seem to be occupied by mostly permanent residents. We were next to a guy who had been there four years. He said the pipeline crews are mostly gone compared to the past few years, and that they cleaned out the problem folks a year or so ago. Most of the permanent folks seem to work during the day. The water pressure was good. The wifi was spotty at best. It was great at first but then became unreliable. They have a bunch of routers, all with the same password, some never worked, some worked so-so, some were good then went out or became slow. We gave up and used our hotspot. We used the laundry which looked new and had good machines. Did not use the bath house but looked in and it was clean. The driveway needs to be resurfaced. The back to back sites are asphalt. Perimeter sites are gravel. Most are very level. Office staff was friendly and helpful. We camped at Tower Campground in a Motorhome.

If you are getting your drivers license get there at 7 AM when they open. We were given this advice and glad we did. We were 2nd in line and got through quickly but when we left the place was packed. Sioux Falls Park is excellent. There is a nice dog park at Spencer park.

Artillery Ridge Campground, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania

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

The first site we were on was next to the sewer lift station that buzzed 24/7. We asked for another site and were accommodated without problems to one of the back loops. The back loops are wide open, some pull throughs and some with 50 amp. Mostly level gravel sites. The downside is poor water pressure. Not all sites are 50 amp and not all sites have 110 outlets on the pedestal. The wifi is excellent. The campground is convenient to town and the attractions. The owner owns three tourist attractions and admission to all three is included with your stay. We did all of them and it was interesting. Price above was for PA; switched to GS when the PA was not available at about $40/night. We camped at Artillery Ridge Campground in a Motorhome.

We did the on site horseback tour of the park with our nieces (6/12). It was excellent. The Gettysburg museum is also very good as well as the attractions you get tickets for as part of your stay. Tommy's Pizza is excellent and just down the road. DW loved it so much we ate there 4 times in two weeks. Also ate at the Dobbin's House and General Pickett's Buffet. Both very good.

This place is huge. Despite the late winter/early fall the place had far more campers than I anticipated. Large lake for water activities. Friendly staff in the office. We camped at Paul B. Johnson State Park in a Motorhome.

Point Mallard Park, Decatur, Alabama

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We have a 44' so were given one of the few pull throughs and we fit easily. Large rig spots are out in the open-good for satellite, not for shade. Plenty of overflow parking although it might be a hike depending on where your campsite is. About half of the folks here are permanent and another contingent simply stores their unit on a site. The place was not trashy although many sites are crammed with stuff. One of the permanent folks said they kick out undesirables quickly which appeared to be the case. Many work at the GE plant down the road. ATT had a group there, with their bucket trucks, installing fiber in nearby towns on a 1-2 year project. The place is part of a larger rec area with golf, tennis , open fields etc. Not much to do in the actual RV park. Poor water pressure. We camped at Point Mallard Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Lurleen State Park, Coker, Alabama

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the place to unplug from the world. No cell service, internet, or wifi. No local TV channels except the weather radar, a sports channel, and one that shows old movies; none of the networks can be seen here. We have ATT cell and Verizon hotspot and both were mostly useless no matter indoors or out, moved around the camp etc. Satellite TV worked fine. The park needs an update-50 amp, repaved roads etc. A camp host told us wifi is in the works but is behind schedule. Some sites on a slope. Limited sewer sites. Limited spaces for large rigs-scout your choices before pulling the rig in. The lake is beautiful. It was too cold to enjoy but there is a beach area, canoe and paddleboat rentals, fishing etc. We camped at Lake Lurleen State Park in a Motorhome.

Blakeley State Park, Spanish Fort, Alabama

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Very rustic with very roomy well spaced sites. There was hardly anybody here. We have a 44' and had trouble finding a flat enough site that was long enough. Most of the sites are not flat-so if you have a long rig scout it out first. Also, most sites are tree covered so you have to be careful of scratching in a larger rig. Some of the utility placements are odd in relation to where you might park. We used all of our 30' sewer hose. We are self contained and did not need the bathrooms/showers but checked them out and they were filthy. We mentioned this to the staff and they said they are cleaned once a week. Considering how few people were there and the condition we saw it is doubtful that is true. The bathhouse is a long way from the RV area (it is closer to the tents) so take that into consideration if you need the bathhouse. ATT cell service was so-so. Verizon hotspot worked well. We camped at Blakeley State Park in a Motorhome.

Lazy Lake RV Park, Gulf Shores, Alabama

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

This is a very basic no frills place at a decent price. You get what you pay for. We made reservations and paid for a one month stay. We lasted a week. The campground is next to a cement plant that runs seven days a week. The noise is constant all day, beeping, trucks, loud noises of all sorts. They start at 5AM EVERY DAY, including weekends, and go until 5-530PM (half days on Sat/Sun). We could not take it anymore. This place would be perfect for someone who worked all day or was otherwise away. The other campers, most were snowbirds, didn't seem to mind or at least just tolerated it. Pros-The owners are super friendly. They converted our week stay into the daily rate and refunded the balance despite the "no refunds" policy. The free wifi is excellent. The other campers were all friendly. Sites are spacious and easy to get in/out of with our 44'. The location is close to the beach and to Foley which has restaurants and the usual big box stores. We did not use the washer/dryers or bathhouse but they both were clean and decent. We camped at Lazy Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Big Tree RV Park, Arcadia, Florida

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

Excellent, quiet place. We came for three days. It was early fall and the place was deserted as the snowbirds had not yet arrived. Excellent value with Passport America. Very clean. New dog run which we used and was very nice. Did not use the pool or other amenities but they looked good.

The office is closed on weekends. We lost power on Sunday (just us) and called the emergency number on the door which was forwarded to the office where we left a voicemail. There was no callback but to be fair we figured out the problem and called back to cancel. First thing Monday the maintenance guy was knocking at our door.

I really liked this park. We camped at Big Tree RV Park in a Motorhome.
