Stephen C. Foster State Park, Fargo, Georgia

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

If you want to see alligators in the wild this is the place to go. The correct park spelling is Stephen C. Foster State Park if you are doing an Internet search. This is a destination campground for the Okefenokee Swamp which is over 20 miles from the nearest store or gas station. What makes this state park so unique is the remote location and opportunity to get very close to nature. The camp sites are grass and some are not level. Driving a big rig is very difficult due to the trees and sharp turns so we parked our 38' 5th wheel in one of the few pull-through sites on the outer edge of the campground. Water and electric worked as expected and a dump sites is available. We camped at Stephen C. Foster State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We took the swamp boat tour on the first day however, the next day we rented a boat and saw so much more of the wildlife. Also there is a hiking trail alone the South end of the swamp which is a great area to view deer, wild hogs and of course more alligators.

Up the Creek RV Camp, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $52.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice campground tucked away in Wear's Valley just a couple of miles from the Pigeon Forge strip. There are several different types of sites and we had a back-in site on the creek with a patio with a table and chairs. A fire ring is included at each site and the most expensive sites have an outdoor fireplace. The check-in was very pleasant and informative as the office staff answered my many questions on sightseeing the local area. The tram comes through the campground but April, being the off season, we opted to drive to the different locations including Gatlinburg which has paid parking. All utilities work as expected including wife and cable TV. Be careful of the large rocks along the road. We actually struck a rock making a turn which was my fault but worthy of sharing. When making reservations I suggest calling to ask about the available sites since some are smaller than others and a few have a slight incline to get into such as the back-in creekside sites. One downside is that the campground will charge $5/day for all adults beyond the first 2 which is one of the reasons why I can't give Up the Creek 10 Stars. We camped at Up the Creek RV Camp in a Fifth Wheel.

The Old Mill is a great place to start your visit and make sure you have lunch or dinner in their restaurant. There are actually dozens of attractions along the Pigeon Forge strip so do your homework and plan your trip.

Wills Creek RV Park, Fort Payne, Alabama

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Nice campground with all pull-through sites with full hookups. Gravel sites with grass, nothing fancy but clean and very adequate for a stopover. The staff was very friendly and helpful. At check in we were told that WiFi was best close to the office but we choose a site in the middle of the park and the WiFi did not work. Quiet location yet close easy access to Interstate. We camped at Wills Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Coastal Georgia RV Resort, Brunswick, Georgia

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

A beautiful park will a pool, dog walk and all paved roads. Each site is on a concrete pad with nice grass and landscaping between the sites. All utilities provided and worked fine including wifi and cable TV. And did mention that most of the sites are pull-through except sites along the outer parameter. There were several rigs in what appeared to be overflow in the parking lot. But we felt save and secure in the campground but not happy paying an extrs $2.00 for extra travelers. We camped at Coastal Georgia RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Zachry's Seafood Restaurant is just a few blocks away and is a "wonderful" place for fresh South Georgia seafood. And if going to Jekyll Island there is a toll booth at the island entrance which is not user friendly if in a high tow vehicle; just go inside the visitors center and purchase your toll pass.

Albany RV Resort, Albany, Georgia

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice campground which is heavily wooded probably providing a lot of shade in the warm months. Very friendly staff. We stayed here so we could visit Plains (Jimmy Carter's home) and Andersonville Civil War prison. Both of which are about 45 minutes away but could not find a "decent" campground any closer. All utilities including Cable TV and wifi were well maintained. There is a dog walk path around the campground which begins at the end of the nice little pond. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Albany RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

If coming from the North, you will have to make a U-turn on the highway to access the park. This is not an easy thing to do in some rigs so be careful. Also there is an RV sales and service business next door if you need to attend to some mechanical problems.

Cave Country RV Campground, Cave City, Kentucky

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

Very nice, well maintained, clean campground in a great location for visiting the National Caves. Landscaping is perfect. Friendly staff and we would stay here again; probably will. We especially like the large grass dog walk. Although the campground is near the Interstate there is little if any road noise. Make sure you visit the Butterfly Garden behind the park office. We camped at Cave Country RV Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Irwin Park , Edinburgh, Indiana

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

This is a very small city park with zero frills. It is not convenient to I-65 and you go through some small streets to approach the park. Not much of anything is nearby; mostly a depressed area in a very old neighborhood. The rig next door appeared to be dumping sewage on the ground very close to the fresh water hook up which I reported to the park office. The dump site had dried tissue spread across the parking area and who know what else was mixed in with that stuff which I also reported to the park office. This could be a very nice park but we didn't feel safe outside after dark; some long term/permanent campers who were not friendly at all. One pro is the office staff was nice and helpful however the office is several blocks away from the park and is difficult to get your rig into the park office lot. Stay here is you have no other options. But if you do stay, call ahead and ask if you can park your rig then come to the office for registration in your tow vehicle. We camped at Irwin Park in a Fifth Wheel.
