Rodman Campground, Palatka, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2018 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Shady, quiet, remote, what a GREAT place. As with most Fla State Parks the showers and restrooms were very, very nice. We spent 4 nites while we attended the Palatka Bluegrass Festival at the Rodeheaver Boy's Ranch just 6 miles away. As Fla senior residents we only paid $11 per night. There are 2 campgrounds, phase 1 & phase 2, we stayed at site 45 in phase 2. Phase 1 has a boat ramp if you have a boat or kayak. No sewers at the sites but a great dump station on the way out. We camped at Rodman Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Pensacola RV Park, Pensacola, Florida

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

The staff was so helpful with directions to eating places, directions to the Naval Aviation Museum and just really GREAT hosts. Our site was in the sun, BUT their are sites in the shade. Excellent lay out of the electric, water and sewer. Very smooth gravel roads throughout the park, keep your speed down as not to create dust for your fellow campers. We camped at Pensacola RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

For a 50/60s diner style restaurant with GREAT food and really good service go to Wayne's Family Diner which is just east of the park at the traffic light on Pine Forest Rd. When you turn off Pine Forest Rd and head West to the park--look for the 2nd RV park sign. The 1st sign goes to the wrong park !!

Suwannee River State Park, Live Oak, Florida

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

Sometimes the ranger is not on duty at the check-in station, just proceed to your reserved site, or if you don't have reservations , drive on thru look for a unreserved site , occupy it then go back and register. Sites can be unlevel , some sites had concrete pads others were dirt & sand. Restrooms and showers were excellent. We camped at Suwannee River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Myakka River State Park, Sarasota, Florida

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

There are 3 campgrounds in this park, I stayed at the Big Flats campground , which is only a 5 minute walk to Kayak/canoe/bicycle rental and the park restaurant and boat ramp. Lots of wildlife, plenty of alligators , raccoons, turkeys , birds, birds and more birds, deer and wild hogs, which they aggressively trap. Miles of hiking trails both in shade and in sun, flat lands and hammocks and a " canopy walk ". Had a little issue with their 30 amp receptacle making contact with my plug in, poor design on the electrical box, at least that's my opinion. Sewer not at this site, dump station on the way out of the park. Fresh, drinking water hookup was available on this site. " I will be back" Lots more to explore. I hiked and kayak at this park. We camped at Myakka River State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nashville I-24 Campground, Smyrna, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

I called about 4:45PM and explained my needs, and that I wouldn't arrive until 7:45PM. She told me my rate, said she would leave a map to my site and welcome to Nashville--a very pleasant person. When I arrived and picked up my map, a golf cart came out of the dark and ask me what site I was in, and led me right to it --GREAT service. I set up, then hit the clean showers and enjoyed a quiet night. We camped at Nashville I-24 Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I stay here about 3 times a year and find it to be a little more crowded than I like, but a lot of Families really have a good time. 2 hiking trails on the property, but if you like to hike try the Miami-Erie Canal tow path, great casual hiking, and also downtown St Mary.

The beach is just a 10 minute walk , but swimming in Lake Erie is NOT recommend because of algae blooms, however pond with a beach area is just a short walk, with all kinds on concessions.
