I forgot that this is a Passport America campground, so the rate shown was twice what it might have been. When checking in, the helpful manager/owner didn't mention the possible discount. The RV portion of the campground was a ring of about a dozen sites with full hookups. About half of the sites were seasonal. Each site was made of old asphalt that only extended to the dimensions of an RV; at my site, the area for hookups was dirt which turned to mud after a daily rain storm. The small store/nail salon had a few items for sale, but more was available in Old Fort, about 3 miles from the campground, located up a "holler." There was zero over-the-air TV reception, no cable service, and poor Verizon cell phone reception, but the campground wi-fi worked very well. The tightness of the steep surrounding hills meant that a satellite TV system might not work, either. This was the second time staying at this campground, and we'd likely stay again in the future as there are not many choices in the area.

This is a compact linear RV park, on the French Broad River, with sites on both sides of a central recreation path and road. An interstate highway is immediately above the campground with much traffic. For a 2 night stay, this campground worked well for me. While sites were very close together, each one was back-in on a concrete pad and most had full hookups. The rate shown was for Passport America, available most days. There was little shade. The advice to check in at the RV repair shop didn't work as it was closed up and we checked in with the helpful person at the campground. There was a cable connection that we didn't use. There were no picnic tables or fire rings at sites. We saw a wi-fi signal but didn't learn if it was for customers. The campground is 5 miles from downtown Asheville. A popular recreation path/trail runs through the middle of the park. If in the area again, we'd likely stay here.

In the year since I stayed at this campground, the county has added free wi-fi that worked well, after my Verizon phone couldn't find a signal. Nearly all sites were backin, spacious and needed some leveling. The rate shown was likely a senior rate. The entire campground is in dense woods. The roads through the campground are paved, but the sites are gravel. It appeared that all sites had 30 and 50 amp service along with a water spigot. The park was busy over the weekend, but by Sunday afternoon, nearly everyone left. The 3:00 pm checkout time is good for weekenders. The restrooms were clean and the showers were free and private. The campground is in the much larger Dan Nicholas Park with many shelters and activities galore on the 10 acres fishing lake. It's about 7 miles into Salisbury from the campground. We would definitely stay again if in the area.

I found this park to be just about perfect, and the only drawback was the very close-by I-91 which generated a constant but not excessive hum of noise. The hosts were outstandingly nice and helpful. I was led to my grassy site by a host who changed my site to one with nice shade and no neighbor on one side. The rate shown is $12.50 Passport America rate for a W/E site, valid on Sunday through Wednesday on a once-a-month basis. The park is quiet and all the staff is friendly. I could not tell if any of the rigs were seasonal, but did not see too many people during my 3 day mid-week stay. There was zero over-the-air TV reception, but free park wi-fi worked well. Verizon phone worked well. Although it looks like the easiest way to get to the park off I-91, people arriving must not use River Road if your rig is over 11-0 feet as the narrow overpass blocks the road. Best to call the office and ask how to get there. I enjoyed my stay and am looking forward to staying again in the near future.

This Corps of Engineers park is on Okatibbee Lake, a flood control reservoir. Like many other COE campgrounds, this one is very well maintained and everything is clean and welcoming. Sites are spacious, mostly shaded, and consist of fine gravel held in place by wooden berms. The extent of the fine gravel is such that virtually the whole site is included. The rate shown reflects a 50% discount for the federal senior pass. Premium sites right on the water are a couple of dollars more. During our mid-week stay, there was only one other camper in our loop. No wi-fi, but our Verizon card worked perfectly and over-the-air TV did as well. We'd stay here again, especially given the excellent value and pretty scenery.

We returned to this campground so we could ride our trikes on the Longleaf Trace. Not much has changed since our last visit, except that the pleasant and helpful owner and his son are now raising goats, so campers can expect to see plenty of goats, horses, miniature horses, and a braying donkey. Unless one is animal-phobic, they are a lot of fun; bring old bread for treats. The beagles have moved down the road. The sites are tight and a couple of them were damp after the recent rains. We have not seen another camper when we were there, and odds are you would be the only one when visiting. FHU included in rate shown. Some of the cable TV wires have pulled out of their jacks, so there was no cable but OTA reception was good. Good cell and data coverage. Any time we're in the area and want to ride the trace, we'll stay here.

After spending a few days here last winter, we stayed two weeks on this trip. Our site this time was in the "old" campground, where the sites are more spacious than in the "new" campground. All sites in the park are paved; others have reported some deterioration of the pavement. There is a mix of back-in and pull-through sites, although most of the pull-through sites have too tight a radius, making for constrained use. Also, there are some issues with the location of the electrical tower at those sites. There is a fair amount of standing water this time, including immediately off the paved part of some of the lots. Also, the grass on a few sites is completely torn up (feral pigs?) and essentially unusable. The "new" comfort stations are nicely laid out and the free showers were a pleasure to use. The fee shown is the daily rate, and does not include the $6 "transaction fee" the state charges users so they can then pay to camp, even walk-ups. At least the fee is only charged once per visit, not daily. We had to clean the cigarette butts out of the charcoal grill and felt that the park people should have done that. We couldn't get the free Wi-Fi to work at all but our Verizon card worked very well, as did over-the-air TV. The 8.75% sales tax on virtually everything, including groceries, in the county was a downer. Regardless, we like the area during Mardi Gras and would stay here again another time.

This dimunitive county park is about 8 miles outside Tallahassee. Sites are either pull-through or back-in. Large rigs should make sure they get large enough sites; our site drops down near the water and a climb back out, which would be very tight for a large rig. Sites include water and electric and there's a convenient dump station on the way out of the park. The county just implemented an improved web site for making reservations that is far better than the emails back and forth to the host. The price reflects taxes and fees that add $3 to each night. The free wi-fi worked well, as did our Verizon card and over-the-air TV. The park is adjacent to a boat launch on Talquin Reservoir and the campground welcomes boaters to stay there for boating recreation. This is the second time we've stayed there and appreciate the peace and quiet of the area. We'd stay again.

This campground, part of the Fort Pickens area in the Gulf Islands National Seashore, is large with 5 loops. Our site in Loop A was paved and level, and partially shaded. The barrier island that is the national seashore in this area is very narrow and low, so it's common to see water in the road and parking lots from rain, plus white sand blowing across the road. We stopped here to visit the National Naval Aviation Museum at Pensacola NAS. There is no wi-fi but our Verizon card worked well and there were plenty of over-the-air TV stations. Sites had electric and water. The campground is reached by crossing two bridges from the mainland through Gulf Breeze and then to Pensacola Beach. This is the second time we've come here and would likely return in the future.

This campground is very compact and although there were a number of large rigs in the campground during our 2 night mid-week stay, pay attention to the site lengths when reserving a space; some are quite short. Also, the campground was full both nights we were there, so reservations are advised. Sites were back-in, electric and water, paved and fairly level, and could easily be corrected. Large rigs should avoid heading around the tight turnaround by site 16, as it's tight. Be mindful of the low hanging branches. Showers have individual doors and are very private. The National Seashore intake person came around in the early evening to make sure everything was OK with our stay, a very nice touch. The only demerit for the place was the bunch of cigarette butts in the fire ring. The rate shown reflects the 50% off with the federal senior pass. This is the second time we've stayed here and will always return here when in the area.

I definitely think the work-in-progress has stopped in favor of building more cabins. Campground is an open field with a tiny pond at one end. Most of the sites were occupied by RV units that looked like they were long-term, perhaps area workers or full-timers. There were assorted blankets and other materials tossed over a fence. The place looked untidy and uncared for (except for the cabins). The TV cables were lying on the ground; ours had no connectors on the ends. The 50 amp service was good and the wi-fi was good with some dropouts. The sewer system looked to be mostly on the ground instead of under it. We found the place OK for a one night stop on our way through. The price shown included a Passport America discount, available Sun-Wed nights. I think we'd make other arrangements next time we were in the New Bern area.

This is a very rustic campground, with very tall and large shade trees so dense as to render the whole campground dark for much of the day. The roads through the campground are dirt with numerous potholes, and sites consist of pine needles. We have seen two Class As in the park, but would recommend it only for the adventurous. Most sites are back in, and some are not level at all. The rate shown is for electric and water service; a dump station is at the park exit. Sites with any reservations during the current month have a calendar page showing which dates in the month are reserved. The campground is only a couple of miles from the Anacortes-Sidney, BC, ferry, so is an excellent place for an overnight when leaving or arriving. A two mile long loop road running around the point is very popular with walkers, and is definitely worth a tour, either on foot or by car. We stayed here both coming and going to Sidney, B.C., and would stay here again when traveling through.

We originally planned to stay at this campground for 3 nights, but a medical issue extended our stay to 10 nights. The rate shown is the single night rate and is in U.S. dollars, as requested. We found the park to be excellent in all respects. Our level pull-through site had foliage on both sides for some privacy from adjacent campers. Seasonal users, which were a large majority of the park, were in a separate section from transient users. All camping units, including seasonal ones, were in excellent condition and very well maintained. Campground maintenance was excellent. There was little shade on sites, but the cooler weather of fall meant rigs did not get hot. Wi-fi, even with an external wi-fi adapter, was marginal. Victoria was about 12 miles away and the Sidney-Anacortes ferry was conveniently close. We would definitely stay here, were we to visit Vancouver Island again.

We spent a week at this very large campground as part of a club rally. Our site was a partially shaded gravel site with "4 services." Many other sites had no shade at all. Most sites were back-in and some were pull-through. A large number of seasonal campers were situated along the lake and looked like they were there for the long haul. As an earlier reviewer said, the campground facilities were double booked for a while which was disappointing. The single night cost shown, in U.S. dollars, is approximate as it was part of a package deal. The wi-fi, $11.20 U.S. for a week, per device, was an annoying add-on. Staff maintained the park well. If we were in the area again, we'd stay here.

Earlier reviewers said it cost $40 a night plus charges for dogs. This web site asks for costs in US dollars, so the site for us at the current exchange rate was actually $30 a night, which includes full hookups plus cable. The campground is located along the Sheep River and it looked like the river occasionally required an evacuation of the campground. Our arrival was handled expediently and pleasantly, and we were escorted to our site by a staff member. There are pull-through and back-in sites. This is a gated park, very well run. The campground was full or nearly so during our 3 night mid-week stay. We arrived after a period of rain, so there was some mud on our site and on the roads. Some more gravel would have helped with that. Sites were dirt and gravel, level, and a reasonable distance apart, with lush grass for the picnic tables. Wi-fi was available, one hour each 24 hours for free or $4.95 per day per device. Okotoks is a bedroom community for Calgary so the mass exodus north on weekday mornings is very busy. There was plenty of shopping and restaurants available within walking distance and the off-road bike trail network was extensive; pick up the trails right at the campground. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again when in the area.
