Lithia Springs Park, Lithia, Florida

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

This is a fine little campground. It's inexpensive for senior citizens and has some very good campsites. We thought we had found a real bargain until the race track (or whatever it is) next door, started up early one morning. Motorcycles and mud buggies or whatever whooped it up for several hours. The noise doesn't seem to bother my wife as much as it does me, but I think camping should be a little more peaceful than a night at the races. Just me, I guess. It mercifully shut down well before dark.

Bathhouse was adequately clean and quite workable, but far from sparkling. Nice nature trail and springs. I like the one way roads, which mean that everyone doesn't have to pass by your site twice. Small number of sites means there isn't an excess of traffic to begin with. Campsites are of varying quality, but you get to pick the best of what's available, so if you don't like what you see you can move on down the road.

Our site had neighbors an adequate distance away but in plain view, so no privacy, but they moved after first night leaving an empty campsite. Some of the sites are much better than one we had, so rating would depend upon which you get. Several sites would rate 9 or better. Overall, we're glad we stopped in, and will likely do so again.

If they could eliminate the sporadic noise and spruce up just a tad, they could easily charge an additional $10 or more a night, even without discount, with few complaints. We camped at Lithia Springs Park in a Motorhome.

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

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

I found the previous reviews to be accurate. The Shady Pines section has the best sites overall, but the Gulf Breeze sections has some good ones too, especially if it's cool or cold. (It got below freezing on our last visit.) The worst thing about this campground is the lack of completeness. The potential is limitless. The beach is amazing and easily accessed. People who like beaches will love the isolated and pristine feel of the park's beaches, but the campground itself falls just a tad short of perfect. It's an unpolished diamond. Eliminate the old bathhouse and some cramped and/or low privacy campsites and this place would be my new standard of campground perfection. (So close, yet so far.) Given the price, one shouldn't complain, but if they did the things I suggest, I would pay double or more to camp there. (Unfortunately, so would millions of other RV'ers, so I probably would never get back in. Like the state park campgrounds in the Key's that I can never reserve. ) We camped at T.H. Stone Memorial St Joseph Peninsula State Park in a Motorhome.

Saint Andrews State Park, Panama City Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This park has some great sites and the beach is killer, with some of the biggest (non hurricane) waves I've seen in Florida. The park is definitely worth a visit, but the campground itself is optional. Most of the appealing sites seemed to be along the bay and one could definitely do worse, but our site was sort of jammed in. It actually wasn't bad, especially since we're in a B-class, but there wasn't much privacy and when combined with the fact that foot and vehicle traffic were virtually nonstop, it left a bad taste. I hate feeling like I'm constantly on display, with endless gawkers roaming about. (Although I fully understand the desire to check out everyone's setup and do quite a bit of gawking myself.) Campgrounds of this size and popularity always present a problem for me. When 50 campers must all use the same access roads, you unavoidably get nonstop vehicle traffic. The beach being about a mile from the campground only added to the traffic. Every time I went to walk our dog, head to the beach, or just go to the bathhouse, I had to wait on traffic. The weather was cold during our visit, so we weren't outside at the campsite much, but if we had been, the privacy issue would have been even more pronounced. Our fire pit was just a few feet from our neighbor's camper. I would be scared if people had a campfire so close to ours. Like a lot of campgrounds, this one would be much better if the number of sites were reduced and every site was made into a good one. One shouldn't have to gamble or research endlessly just to get a good site, but nobody wants regulation or oversight so that's probably not going to happen anytime soon. In short, we're glad we visited, but probably won't return. We camped at Saint Andrews State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You know what they say about first impressions. Like any city, Panama City has countless things to do, but much of the beach area seems old and/or rundown. We stopped at a fast food joint that looked like something you'd see in a third world country, but this seems to be more and more common no matter where you go in the U.S. We saw little reason to venture outside the park, or return, but that's just our first, but probably last, impression.

Topsail Hill State Preserve, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful campground. It's clean, attractive, and cool. The loop we stayed in didn't have a bad site. (Which, by the way, should be the standard for all campgrounds. I don't think someone should fall all over themselves when they find something that delivers for the price. We should expect it.) The beach is to die for. So why the relatively low rating? Well, the bathhouse was old, unclean, and generally unworkable. We have a shower in our B-Class but I prefer to use bathhouses, as they're roomier and hot water quantity generally isn't an issue. This one smelled bad and the showers we're tight, not-so-clean, and generally unappealing. Not enough hooks, no bench, poor water flow, etc. I won't return unless I have a larger RV and no longer need the bathhouse. If you don't need the bathhouse then this campground rates a 10, so it's a shame for everyone who does. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Sunset Point Campground, Harrington, Maine

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

I love this little campground and could easily spend weeks here. It only has 21 RV sites and feels like a campground should. It's quiet, attractive, and functional. The facilities are not new, but they are clean and well maintained. You get park quality views and sunsets from the short little trail around the campground, or directly from some of the sites, for no extra charge. No water slides, pools, or coasters, so it won't appeal much to the faux adventure crowd. We camped at Sunset Point Campground in a Motorhome.

Bar Harbor Campground, Bar Harbor, Maine

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

This is a big and busy campground that can handle the pressure. I was amazed that such a busy campground could keep bathhouses clean and everything functional. Everything worked as expected or better. You can't go too far wrong here. Most of the previous comments are still valid. I'm just updating. We found a private spot that we liked just fine and could have settled in for a week or more. We camped at Bar Harbor Campground in a Motorhome.

Schoodic Woods Campground, Winter Harbor, Maine

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

This would be an almost perfect campground if it had showers. It's camping like it should be, rather than an amusement park with campsites. It has beautiful hiking trails, sweet biking trails, free shuttles to some of the most beautiful scenery in the eastern U.S., clean and up-to-date everything . . . except showers. Sorry tent campers. If it did have showers, it would be my current standard or gauge for what a great campground should be. It's still near the top and a great achievement by the National Park Service. We camped at Schoodic Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is on the quieter side of Acadia National Park, but the views and trails are just as impressive as the Bar Harbor area. Do both, but you'll find yourself less stressed on the Schoodic side.

Mountain View Campground, Dixfield, Maine

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

We found this campground on the fly, and couldn't have been happier. We just needed a spot for the night and it delivered. Full hookup (no cable) in a big grassy field. Clean bathrooms, private showers, pool, quiet at night, view of nearby "mountains," friendly management, etc. While the campground has even nicer sites for seasonal campers, of which there were several, ours was great for a few nights. We'll visit again if in the area. We camped at Mountain View Campground in a Motorhome.

Riverhurst Park Campground, Olean, New York

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

Overpriced and lacking. If you require or just desire clean restrooms and showers you will want to drive on by this campground. While it has some of the largest trees you are likely to see in the state, its "shower" facility is a joke and the bathroom isn't much better. If you don't need either you might like this campground just fine, but it's still pricey, and noisy. We camped at Riverhurst Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Geneva State Park, Geneva, Ohio

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

Nice place; mediocre campground. If you use the bathrooms and showers like we do, you will probably be disappointed with this campground. Dated and dingy. Campsites are adequate but hardly overwhelming. You can enjoy the park without paying to camp. Worth a visit but not a repeat. We camped at Geneva State Park in a Motorhome.

Moonshine Creek Campground, Sylva, North Carolina

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

This is a cool little campground. It's really good, but could easily be great. It has everything one might need: full hook-ups, cable, clean bathhouse, pretty location, etc. The list goes on and on. There are a lot of positives, so don't let my comments deter a visit. This could turn out to be your favorite campground in the world.

My only complaints are that it feels cramped, and as such is a little pricey. We are in a 24-foot Class B. There isn't much privacy on most of the RV sites. Our fire ring was an afterthought, it seemed. Eliminate every other site, fill-in the spaces with native plants, and it would be an extraordinary, unique, and not-to-miss campground. I realize that not everyone cares about such things, and since the campground is obviously popular, I wouldn't expect this to be occurring anytime soon.

We visited this campground while traversing the Blue Ridge Parkway. The campgrounds directly on the Parkway itself don't have hook-ups and we had a freezer full of frozen food, so we ventured off for 3 nights. It made an excellent base-camp to explore along the Parkway. We could have easily stayed longer and would have been tempted to do just that, were the price a bit lower. Say $30 instead of $45. We hope to return in the future. We camped at Moonshine Creek Campground in a Motorhome.

Indian Boundary Campground, Tellico Plains, Tennessee

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

I love this campground! There are plenty of great sites, which are level and spacious. The campground is rustic and beautiful. The 3-mile long hiking trail around the nearby lake is alone worth the price of admission; it's awesome for a nature hike or easy mountain bike ride. The campground store is phenomenal and about as well stocked as one could wish for. There's really only two caveats about this campground. Otherwise it would rate a 10 for me. The first is that there's no water hookup directly at the sites. However, there are water sources scattered around the campground. This is but a small inconvenience. We had water directly across from our site-#85. Pull out, fill up, back in, no problem. This little inconvenience probably keeps the campground from being overcrowded and overpriced, so try to take the bad with the good. The second issue is also a minor one: that being that many of the sites are near the campground entry road, which can be noisy when loud trucks and motorcycles are coming and going. Loop A gets you further away from the noise. There is no wi-fi at the campground and we didn't have phone service either. We didn't have our dish satellite with us, but I expect that getting a signal would have been tricky. But hey, it's camping. The reprieve from technology was a blessing. Our vehicle is a 24 foot class B. We camped at Indian Boundary Campground in a Motorhome.
