Gun Creek Campground - COE, Whittington, Illinois

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Uncrowded this time of year and we had a beautiful view of the lake. Our site was pretty unlevel but manageable. The woman at the gate was chatting with some guy when we got there so we had to wait. And wait. And wait. I would advise you to just interrupt her. We camped at Gun Creek Campground - COE in a Travel Trailer.

Bayou Segnette State Park, Westwego, Louisiana

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

We were visiting friends in the area so we actually did not spend much time here. But the campground is very nice: plenty of space, level site, covered trash every few sites, free laundry (and it was nice!), decent wifi and cell phone coverage (AT&T). They contacted us a few weeks ahead to tell us our reserved site was unsafe due to a sink hole and moved us to a nearby site. Effortless on our part, they took care of everything . We arrived 4 minutes after the office closed and while we were reading the sign for instructions, the ranger opened the window and helped us out with a big smile. Once you are inside the park, the campground would be hard to find without directions - past the marina, under LaPalco then follow the levee. I asked what was beyond our camp site and was assured it was all woods, no water. But there was a narrow bayou back there and after it rained, a lot of mosquitoes. But that is to be expected. I would definitely stay there again and try to spend more time enjoying the campground. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Pickens Campground, Pensacola, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

This did not look like our kind of place, it looked crowded and it was. But it was fun people watching, the beach is close by, and the Blue Angels practiced right overhead. Our site was very level but a bit difficult to get into because it was very crowded right at that point. Crowded because the people across from us sprawled their stuff out onto the road. If your rig is ginormous, that doesn't entitle you to exceed your campsite space! The only drawback was that the campground store and laundry were closed. We camped at Fort Pickens Campground in a Travel Trailer.

T.H. Stone Memorial St Joseph Peninsula State Park, Port St. Joe, Florida

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

We stayed on the Shady Pines side, gorgeous wooded sites within earshot of the surf. Our site was very level and across from the boardwalk to the beach so there were a lot of people coming and going, which was nice for meeting people. We took the boardwalk over to the Gulf Breeze side, it looked nice too but more sun on most sites. There was good wifi at the Bayview Picnic area in the screened in pavilion, which is a cross from the Gulf Breeze campground and within walking distance from Shady Pines. The only drawback is dogs are not allowed on the beaches, even on the bay side. We camped at T.H. Stone Memorial St Joseph Peninsula State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Port St. Joe is a bit of a drive but we went to the Farmer's Market on Saturday and it was worthwhile for us. We bought a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables and a home-baked key lime cake. We were hoping for fresh fish or seafood but none available. Cape San Blas is known for the dog friendly beaches so we drove over to Cape Palms Park, which was very nice even though the dogs had to be leashed.
