Stagecoach RV Park, St Augustine, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

We live in Florida and typically stay in the St. Augustine area our last night before returning home. So, we've sampled all of the parks in this area and Stagecoach is our park of choice. We like the fact that most of the sites are pull-through, there are many good restaurants close by, and they have very good cable TV. The sites are well spaced and there is ample room to walk your pets as well as a 2 dog parks, one for small dogs and one for large dogs. The park is clean and well run. One thing to be aware of is that if your are traveling south on I-95, when you exit for county road 208 you will make a right at the end of the exit ramp and then an immediate left. If you're arriving in rush hour, it can take a while for traffic to clear. We camped at Stagecoach RV Park in a Motorhome.

James Island County Park, Charleston, South Carolina

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

We have visited Charleston many times and this is our preferred place to stay. It's a lovely county park with a campground included. The park is fantastic, with a beautiful lake, climbing wall, dog park adjacent to the lake, and many other amenities. The campground itself is good but not great. The sites are all dirt and most are back-in, although there are a few pull-through sites. Most of the sites are well shaded and spacious, but there are a few sites that are right on top of your neighbors - fine if your camping with friends, but too close for me to be to strangers. We recommend you check out the park map on-line before committing to a space. Also, reservations are recommend as the park us usually full. During our stay in April 2018, both bath-houses were closed for renovation. It seemed odd they decided to close both at the same time, but that's the current state of things. This resulted in a 30% discount, which was a great deal for us, but if you're tent-camping, you may want to wait for the renovations to be completed. As mentioned in other reviews, the one big drawback of this park is that getting to it requires you navigate some narrow roads with overhanging limbs. This did not present a problem for us. We camped at James Island County Park in a Motorhome.

Wilmington KOA, Wilmington, North Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

We have not had very good luck at KOAs especially those located inside the boundary a large town or city. However, this KOA was a very pleasant surprise. When visiting Wilmington, there are not may options close to town and this park is an excellent choice. Yes, it's located on a busy road but most of the time you'll be making a right turn out of the park. There are many good restaurants within just a few miles. Sites are gravel but level and well maintained. There is a dog park and several organized activities for children. In addition to RV sites, this park has quite a few cabins for rent. We found this park to be very well run and an enjoyable stay. Recommended. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The azalea festival occurs in April with festive activities including a nice parade. If you attend the parade, arrive at the parade route 1-2 hours early. Recommend visiting the battleship North Carolina while you are there.

Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort & Marina, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $64.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed at this park for 6 consecutive years for the RBC Heritage golf tournament. It's a very nice park and we'll certainly return to it for any future visits to HHI. As reported in other reviews, the check-in process is to drive around the park in a golf cart and select your own site. There are a few sites on the water, but I've never seen one of them available when we checked-in. We prefer sites on the "outer loop" as opposed to the "inner loop" because they are further away from the pool and tennis court and the noise associated with them. Park is extremely well run, well kept, neat, clean and secure. You'll pay a little more here, but it will be difficult to find a nicer park. We camped at Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Church of the Cross in nearby Bluffton is certainly worth a visit. Bluffton Vet Clinic (open until 8:00pm) is a great choice should your pets need vet care.

Country Oaks RV Park & Campground, Kingsland, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Country Oaks is a great place to stop overnight on your way up/down I-95. Close to the highway, easy to find, easy in/out. Depending on the time of year, you may need reservations in advance. For example, when the snowbirds are migrating north from Florida in late March and early April, a reservation a week or two in advance is advisable. The park was full when we checked-in. We camped at Country Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

If your coach uses gasoline, there is a very convenient BP gas station (between I-95 and the rv park) that can be easily accessed by coaches towing a vehicle.

The Barnyard RV Park, Lexington, South Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

This park is conveniently located and easy in/out from I-26. The area is older and industrial and the park itself is located directly behind a flea market. We were out in the evening several times and didn't notice any nefarious activity in the parking lot of the flea market as had been reported by others - we felt completely safe our entire time there. I was surprised by how quickly we were able to reach all of the area's attractions. Park has a typical multi-loop configuration. Most of the sites are nicely separated with some shade - our site was particularly good with shade, grass and plenty of space. Not all the sites are a nice as the one we had. Check-in process was easy and the staff was helpful and pleasant. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Motorhome.

Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort & Marina, Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $64.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed at the HHH RV Resort 5 times. We have relatives with a timeshare on the island so we come here for 1 week every year when the PGA plays a tour event at Harbor Town Golf Course. They have an unusual check-in procedure that requires you to drive around the park (in a golf cart) and select your own spot. All of the sites are "back in", so, plan on unhooking your tow vehicle in front of the office. The sites are privately owned and have been upgraded by the owners with things like pavers, lights, plants/trees, and even fountains. The staff is very helpful. Also know that, should you need it, there is a Veterinary Clinic in Bluffton (the next town) that is open until 8:00pm - we highly recommend the Bluffton Veterinary Hospital. This isn't the cheapest RV park , but it will be difficult for you to find a nicer one. We camped at Hilton Head Harbor RV Resort & Marina in a Motorhome.

Sunshine RV Park, Savannah, Georgia

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

Other parks were full when we visited the Savannah area, so we stayed at the Sunshine RV Park. First, one needs to understand the check-in process. The park is in a residential and government area. To check in, you pull up in front of the owner's house - park on the street and walk up to his/her garage which has an "Office" sign on it. When I checked-in, I was not given a map of the park, or any documentation whatsoever. They were, however, very adept at taking my $135 for three nights - which is only accepted by cash or personal check. Then, you drive down the street to another relative's house and are told where to park. The "main" park has a couple of typical loops and is located behind a fence. We were in the auxiliary area, which is a U shaped parking lot with back-in spaces around the outside. They sites here are close together and there is absolutely no shade. The sites in the main park appeared a bit better. This park is fine for a short basic stay. By that I mean, it's safe, relatively clean, and all of the hook-ups work. Don't expect much beyond that. We camped at Sunshine RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stagecoach RV Park, St Augustine, Florida

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

We have stayed at several campgrounds in the St. Augustine area and like this one best. The sites are spacious with grass between them. Planted trees at the sites have grown to about 20 feet providing shade at every site I saw. The park is clean and well maintained, I did not see a single fire-ant mound - if you know anything about Florida, that's saying something. I made a reservation the day before. When we arrived, they had an arrival package prepared for me that included a map of the park with rules and TV stations with my site clearly marked. Check-in took about 10 seconds. Management has added a brand new dog park which is freshly sodded. There are two sides, one for large dogs and one for small dogs - our traveling companions approved of this improvement! We camped at Stagecoach RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

To get to the park traveling south on I-95, turn right off the exit and then make an immediate left. This can be challenging at rush hour. If traveling north, it's easier.
