Price is with Good Sam discount. Have stayed at this park a few times visiting Charleston and The Citadel while a grandson was there for 4 years. Location is what sells this park but otherwise, it is way overpriced for what you receive. Check most reviews, rainy weather creats a mess, not called Low Country just for kicks. Power system is absymal, cannot run two ACs which are needed most times, you are in SC after all. Very hard to keep power at 110 or above - one AC and a box fan brings it down to minimum, anything else added and you are in the danger zone and will usually just trip breaker if you are lucky. No cable, cell phone service (Sprint) poor, WiFi was OK this visit, portable dish a must for sighting through tree cover, which is very nice for the shade offered! Again, stay here for the location but not much else.

Very nice park to stop at while traveling the I-10 route; almost deserted when we stopped there for an overnight. Internet reservation system was not working so had to call; maybe it is fixed now. Telephone rep had to really search around to see if they had a pull-thru site available which seemed a bit odd in reality since the place was near empty on arrival! Lots of rain in area but our site did not have a problem. Did not many of the sites that had heavy water standing on the concrete pads so site selection could present a problem at times. Only real drawback was noise (loud, booming bass) from the nearby Crawfish House. Not sure if they have a band every night but if so, you better be a really hard sleeper or have a good sound machine in rig, else you will be kept awake very late. Not good if you are just getting some rest overnight before heading out on road again. Somewhat "pricey" but having traveled this route for years, a much better visit that most other places to stop over. Glad it is there and would stop again.

Agree with previous reviews with one fairly sizable exception, if you are a light sleeper, this campground is not for you! I don't have much of that problem but my wife does and the I-95 traffic kept her awake for most of the night even with A/C running AND a sound machine right by her pillow. I was awakened more than most nights but can pretty well ignore such things - a light sleeper will be miserable here! 30 AMP breaker at our site (#30) had obviously seen better days and it would not hold, tripped whenever we turned on A/C, so got the adapter and plugged into 50 AMP, no problems. Guess a bit more attention to maintenance might be in order.

Rate based on a 3 week stay this time: we camped here in 2002, 2004, and now. It is our favorite in Maine! If you are looking for activity, tourist attractions, etc., this is not for you, plus kids will not find too very much to do I suppose, but we visit because it is just perfect for an older, retired couple like us. Have had visitors during this visit and our previous one and they thoroughly enjoyed it also. Lots of popular Maine sites are available within a short drive: Camden, Bar Harbor, Winter Harbor, Booth Bay, Bangor, etc. and several lighthouses (one our favorite things!) can be accessed by road. Of course many of the Maine lighthouses can only be viewed by boat or air, but enough by land to keep you occupied while touring from Moorings. Young's Lobster Pound is about a mile away, so run down, pick out your choice, have it boiled and come back to camp site for a feast! Think we did this about 9-10 times during this three week visit! Yes, Maine campgrounds are pricey with Moorings not being an exception, but consider that they have a very short period each year that the camp is available for rental and it is justified for what you get! Views from this camp are the best on the coast and add the friendly owners and staff and it can't be beat!

Rate was combined discounts for 5 nights Passport America and 2 nights Good Sam. Really nice park, long pull-thrus, nice separation between sites. Roads and sites are gravel and well maintained. Whole park exhibits great care is being provided. Gets a 9 only because they do charge extra for Wi-Fi and using AC, have 30Amp so no extra for that.

Rate is for week stay with 3 days at Passport America rate, plus I paid fully in advance of the new NH sales tax implementation. This is an excellent camp to visit the sights in Lakes Region/White Mts. of NH. Could not ask for much more! Quite, no hustle and bustle like you will find in the really "touristy" camps; we drove through several areas like that - wall to wall traffic, people, kids, etc. Not for us. Perfect place to stay unless you just have to be right in the midst of things. Short drives to any of those areas that you choose to visit. Lots of good eating places nearby - groceries, Wal-Mart Super Center 10 miles. Facilities first rate and super clean.

A great little campground. Fine for touring southwestern VT and northwest MA - think Norman Rockwell. Had site near office so Wi-Fi was great, plus it had a sewer connection. It was early in their season so the park was very quiet and uncrowded, just what we like. Owners were most helpful and friendly. First rate stop for us!

We would not stay here again. Majority of park does not have sewers, only 40 of 182 sites have sewers. Our site was directly in front of Mens Rest Room; workers and patrons would not close the door - not a pretty site. Guess it was done to try and let some of the bugs out of the bath house as it was loaded! Pay showers and cold water to boot. Beware, Reserve America adds a $19 fee each time you reserve. I had to make a date change in reservation by phone as internet would not change since I was already shown on the site. I immediately checked WiFi after making change and Reserve America had put in incorrect dates. Called them right away and it was another $19 even though it was their mistake. Reserve America says they can do nothing as the fee is a RI policy; RI State Parks says it is Reserve America policy. Somebody has bad policy but no one cares to fix it; just generate a little more income for either or both I suppose. Not much going for this park to make me want to return. Oh yeah, enjoy a nearby beach? Right, when you pay their $7 per day rate and thats only because we were Seniors and would get it for half price. Campground pass only gets you into the Campground, no place else.

Excellent campground but pricey. 10% Good Sam discount but then 8% tax added so basically a wash. Over night stop.
Date of Stay: May, 2009
Would rate a 10 with sewers; early in season so honey wagon service only twice weekly @$7 per service. WiFi just so-so in the front section where they seem to put RPI folks like me, but sites there are much, much nicer than rest of the park! "Owners" area is closer to activities but really crammed in, so I appreciated being in front area. Speed bumps on entrance road are killers; really bang your rig no matter how slow the entry. Folks were very nice, no problems in that area. Nice on-site church service on Sundays in clubhouse. Great location for doing Niagara Falls.

Let's face it, for a city of its size, San Antonio has really lousy RV parks! And this is from someone who lived here (Universal City) for 28 years prior to a recent move to Florida. We come back a couple of times each year around the holiday time to visit children and grandchildren. The best thing this park has going for it is the location: good access to most anything you would want to do in San Antonio area. It seems that each visit the noise gets worse at this park! In addition to all the other things mentioned in other reviews, the park now has construction workers in the RV pull-through area with all their trucks and equipment. These folks crank up their big trucks around 5:30 AM, and take about 30 minutes or more getting all their materials and gear loaded before they pull out up the hill. Even with fans and sound machines working there's not much sleep going on after that part of the morning, which shows that the 7:30 AM "quiet time" is not enforced. Folks with dogs seem to be pretty caring with their pets, but the cat owners allow them to run loose day and night. Be careful opening your door or an unwanted visitor will dart in and may take a bit to get back out. This is not some stray left behind, they are tagged and have owners at the park. As with other parks, rates keep rising, and are now at $430 month (30amp) and $25 for the WiFi. But as I said at first, there is just not much to choose from in San Antonio. What a shame!

Have used this park for overnight stops for a couple of years on trips between FL and TX. Used Passport America on available days per their agreement with no problems. Be advised that the park has changed the Passport America(PA)rules but neglected to advise me of this when I made this reservation, nor have they changed the PA Directory. PA discount is now valid only for back-in sites, no pull-thrus, and payment is cash only. Still a nice park, but not nearly the deal for overnight stop that is has been. And lack of new PA info when making reservation, since I was already in their computer, and not updating PA Directory is not good business practice. Back-in site for an overnight forces me to look elsewhere on future trips.

Good location, very convenient for N/S I-95 travel - BUT, you need to visit this campground when the weather is cool! Power is totally inadequate for hot weather; voltage with nothing on is 116 volts, turn on one A/C and it drops to 108 volts -forget trying to turn on a second A/C! The one A/C operating has very, very little air flow due to low voltage and small floor fans just barely turn. Can't believe this problem has not been reported by other reviews. Also, some of the items listed for this park like Cable TV and waterfront are not here. Can't rate more than a 2 due to the inadequate power and will find another camp for future trips on I-95.

Very, very nice smaller park! Great, friendly staff. Free Wi-Fi which is a great plus for me. Used Good Sam discount on outbound visit; joined "Best Parks in America" for free, and received a $5 coupon that I used on return stop at this same park. Will use this whenever it fits into my travel plans.

This State Park would be a 10 if it had sewers! Showers and rest rooms were very clean. As a FL I paid half the nightly rate which is very nice. Have stayed here several times and highly recommend if it fits your travels.
