I don't chose 10 to often. I realize that lack of cable and sewer might be a detriment for some. Given what it does do well, however, it's a very pretty and well kept sight. The seasonals are a real plus. They keep a very high standard. Pool was crystal clear. Staff accommodating. We're overnight here as we have in the past and will do again. Be careful to follow signs off of I-81, exit eleven and not GPS.

It's not a destination camp-ground but very convenient and quit for an interim stop. We've used it for the past 10 years when we travel west on I-10. A walk around the grounds, pizza and acceptable internet service are all that's required for an enjoyable overnight. Check out the long abandoned Jai alai facility across the way. It's an interesting story.

I was a little skeptical about the picture on the web page. The sites looked crowded and I guess on 4th of July weekend they could be. From a worms eye view that was not the case. Lots of room and very well laid out. Everything was clean and well kept. Staff very friendly. I needed a small repair and they recommended Fun in the Sun RV Repair. Very prompt and professional on-site service. I'd certainly use them again. PreJeans restaurant - about 4 miles away is a must. Definitely the place to stay in Lafayette. Hope to return on a future trip down I-10

Disregard the 5 rating. Drive throughs should always be read skeptically. During the Winter Season the park is usually fully booked by Northern and Canadian seasonals and they make it a second home. If you fortunate to get a reservation it's a very congenial group. Last year we booked four days over Xmas in November and got the last available space. During the balance of the year it's a pleasant (and about the only convenient) place to enjoy Jekyll island from. We've been going to the Island for 25 years and the campground for 8. We've never been disappointed with either and will return as often as possible

Prior review captures most of this location's strong points so no need to repeat. Could use some gravel refreshment, however. The little diner they have offers a great alternative to cooking in. Internet signal is somewhat weak and only practical if you're outside your unit. I followed the signs in and the GPS out. Both worked well but the GPS route was shorter. I don't quite understand the KOA caveat. Can't miss either way. We'd certainly stay again.

We've stayed here several times before and it remains one of my favorite overnight stops in the US for price, convenience, maintenance, and overall friendliness. This time we arrived just after a torrential downpour but were met at our assigned site by a employee that immediately directed us to a dryer venue. Can't comment on longer stay potential. The pool looks first class, however. East/West or North/South layover point - this campsite is the one.

Camping is mostly around the periphery of a big, working farm and as such is charming for those who want this experience. The premium water-view sites don't have electric and many are more pop-top and tent oriented. We did fine Site #170 and #177 probably has the best view. I wouldn't recommend Recompense for anything much over 30 foot RV. Again no electricity in the water view sites. Showers are clean and modern but cost $1.00 for 10 minutes. Wireless is limited directly from of the Camp Office but works fine there. Cell reception was adequate. The peace, quite, and cool evening breeze was appreciated. We would certainly camp here again.

I can't add anything to the prior positive reviews. For long time travelers of the Shenandoah Valley please be aware that the original franchise has changed locations. The old one still exists under a new name. Both are lovely and deserve your patronage. Except for the bull-frogs this location is extremely quite. We hope to return often.

I agree with all the prior evaluations as a very adequate and pleasant overnight or weekend stop. Some of the picnic tables were badly bent and if I managed the campground I'd improve this cosmetic flaw.Other than that it's a well kept property. We'd certainly return.

Experienced campers will temper prior reviews by exploring the past reviews of the low raters. If they've only posted one prior review, and it was also lousy, then one suspects that they don't understand what on the road or campsite evaluation really means. We've utilized the Yamassee/Point South KOA for the past 6 years as an overnight stay. It is in the South Carolina low country and drainage is a problem. Puddles and mud are to be expected. As to grass, which is hard to raise in sand and shade, I observe that they've improved the situation every year, and this year our site (#16 pull-through) was nicely landscaped. The swimming pool is well maintained as is the rest of the facility. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Best of all is the pizza and wings service. It's not a resort location, but for a solid overnight or weekend it's recommended, and we will always return.

A decent facility for an overnight and the second time we‘ve used it as such in the past several years. Was easy on and off 95 and the traffic noise isn’t too bad considering. We happened to experience a rainy night and the concerns expressed about mud are true. A good load of gravel on each site is definitely needed. The other negative was a huge bonfire (looked like trash or construction material) busily burning in the lot next door despite heavy rain. While the wind pushed the considerable pall of smoke in the other direction it could have been a problem. We would stay overnight again: sans bonfire.

Not much to add to all the 9 and 10 ratings. Because of the restriction of pets to certain loops and limited 50 amp sites, I’d be sure to reserve if either apply. Also, they absolutely check rabies certificates so have yours on board. Watch out for abundant wildlife on the park roads. We’d return.

There’s no question that Lands End is a nicely maintained and spacious RV park. The literature and web site, however, may lead one to believe that there’s just a little more direct proximity to Georgian Bay or Lake Huron. In fact the only water view is from a tiny beach on a tiny “bight” a fair walk across the street from the actual campsites. Everything else is deep in the forest.It is a nice forest, with nice sites but definitely “forest”. The only other glaring deficiency is the dump site. It’s very inconvenient to access down narrow roads on a fair slope, towards the back of the campground. It is not exactly the kind of terrain you want to negotiate when leaving early in the morning. They do have a pump-out service but unless your there on a Thursday ($10.00) it will cost you $15.00. The Wi-fi works well if you park next to the office but not elsewhere in the park. We’d stay again in that Lands End is probably the best in Tobermory but we’d be less naive about the actual site environment.

Date of Stay:

A mediocre campground for the price. On the positive side: the pull through sites were more than adequate even for the biggest rigs. The pool and recreational facilities looked well maintained. The restroom/showers were quite a distance from our site thus we didn’t use them. As to negatives: they advertise Wi-Fi but it didn’t work. Wi-Fi that won’t connect to anything is not Wi-Fi! Excuses ranged from lightning strikes, to poor local support, to complete expression of ignorance of the internet on the part of the staff. We were supposed to be comforted by the fact that they will be getting a new system in several weeks. Even part-time travelers rely on a reliable internet connection these days. Making fun of computers just doesn’t cut it. Thank goodness for Barnes and Noble. Also, there weren’t enough dumpsters to accommodate the traffic, especially on a windy Monday morning. Finally, there was a dry rot hole in our picnic table that you could loose a ketchup bottle in. I might stay again if they got the Wi-Fi situation reliably resolved.

Only stayed for one night on the way to Tobermory. The campsite is very convenient to Sault Ste. Marie and Provincial Route 17. Still the feeling is as if you're way out in the country. Sites are gravel and fairly level. It rained a lot the night we were there with relatively few puddles. The Wi-Fi signal was very strong at our site although I heard others complain of a weak signal. The balance of the facility seemed well maintained and the store was well stocked. Also had a nice laundry. We’d certainly stay here again.
