This is a big campground with some very long pull through sites. Very spread out with a number of trashy units. Services are very good and the site we have appears to have all new hookups. Appears to be quite a few activities including fishing and swimming. Seems like the favorite activity is riding around in golf carts or in trucks. Access to the campground is very steep and requires a tight turn between fixed posts. All roads are dirt and there was quite a lot of dust in the pull thru section. Sites a very long but are sloped both front-to-back and side-to-side. Worse yet, the sites have coarse stone that a heavy unit sinks into making leveling a project..in my case I was only able to level by locating a spot that was quite far from the services.. I could not put my jacks down because that lifted my front wheels off the ground. In my opinion, transient section of this campground is best for small units or towed campers but not for large motor homes. I would not return.

This is a great park situated very near the French Quarter of New Orleans. Easy access from I-10. Wide streets with wide, paved back-in sites. Very good services well placed. Very clean. Good Wi-Fi with a strong signal. High wall surrounding the campground gave you a feeling of security. Constant sirens but you get used to them. We walked everywhere from the park and never felt threatened. We never walked at night, however. Easy walk to the Riverfront from here. No shade. We had a wonderful week here. Many great restaurants. Be sure to go to Magazine Street and eat at Domenica Pizza. The roasted cauliflower is wonderful! Also, stop at Sucre' for a gelato milkshake.

We stopped here on our way to New Orleans. Easy access from I-59/20. Transient area has wide gravel roads and sites. Many pull-through sites. Campground is stretched out along JVC Road and is long and narrow. No shade. I didn't check the Wi-Fi. Our site had a concrete pad on both sides so you didn't have to walk through dirt before entering the unit. Good services well placed. Everything I want in an overnight campground. Nothing fancy but I would definitely stay here again if I was passing through.

Price is three month rate but does not include electric of about $2 a day. We have been here since November of 2012 and thoroughly enjoy this park. Many park models here but plenty of spaces left for transients. Our site is very level and faces a row of pleasant park models. Palm tree lined streets add a tropical feel. All roads are paved. All sites are grass and a few offer concrete pads for your picnic table. Services are excellent although some sites require long connections for water and electric. Cable and phone are available thru BrightHouse and WiFi thru either BrightHouse or TengoNet. Very quiet at night except for a train which passes about a mile away. Park is located in rural area with orange groves on one side of park and pine trees on the other. Pleasant town of Dade City about 2 miles away and close to Zephyrville with its excellent Super Walmart for shopping. Extremely friendly people. We are planning to stay here again next winter.

This is a nice park located close to I-95. Very friendly personnel in the office provided an escort to our site. Excellent services. No problem with trees or branches although the road could use some repairs. Some highway noise. Close to Hess Wilco Fuel Stop. We had a problem and had to have the motorhome towed to the local Cummins dealer in Jacksonville. KOA people were very kind and did everything they could to help us even though the unit sat directly on the exit road for most of the day. I would definitely return.

Price reflects KOA discount. Not far off I-75 on a narrow country road. Interior camp roads are paved while sites were gravel. We had a pull-through site which was fairly level and plenty long enough for my 36' RV and toad. Services were adequate and spaced just right. Limited cable TV channels and too many trees to allow satellite to work. Interior roads were easy to maneuver with no branches or limbs to obstruct access. Very friendly staff and owners. A few wretched-looking permanent campers but this seems to be standard anymore. Quiet at night. Well lit. I would definitely stay here again.

We had plans to spend the winter here but personal problems prevented an extended stay. The owners were nice enough to provide a refund for the time not used on our deposit. Overall, I liked this campground. Facilities were clean, all sites were concrete, all services worked well. The sites were small, however, and required you to line up the left side of your RV on the very edge of the pad thus placing the shrubbery under the slideouts once extended. Even under these conditions my car would not fit alongside my motorhome and had to be parked cross-wise in front. Access to the campground is very easy off city streets and all interior roads are paved and easy to maneuver even with larger units. Pull through sites have a little more slope than is necessary resulting in a few units with their rear wheels off the ground once jacks were dropped. Very quiet at night except for an occasional train. I would definitely return.

I thought this park was one of the worse I have ever visited. I am becoming very disappointed in the KOA brand. Off the beaten path on winding, narrow roads. The campground looks bad. Poor paving and narrow gravel roads. We had a pull through site that was level but I felt compelled to unhitch my toad before attempting to make the turn needed to gain access to the site. Services were fine and people were nice but not suitable for large motorhomes towing. I would not return.

What a great campground! We had a site facing the river and really enjoyed the experience. Beautifully maintained with all concrete pads and paved roads. Nicely landscaped. Pleasant view across the river. Good services including cable. All back-in sites. Located about 3 miles off I-40 right behind the Smokies Mountain Knife Works. About 20 miles to the entrance to Great Smokies Mountains. Stayed longer than we had planned.

Date of Stay:

This was our first time here. We needed a stopover on our way home from the Smokies and the reviews all sounded great. This is an OK campground but I probably won't stay here again. It is several miles off the interstate on decent road. The registration is on a steep hill and, if cars are blocking the the road near the office, you are forced to park sideways on a fairly steep hill. Yikes! Campground was practically empty so there were many sites were available. We were led to a pull through about half-way up the mountain. No problem getting level. Lots of stone walls and trees to avoid. All gravel roads and fairly steep. Very quiet. No TV of any kind. Good services otherwise. When you leave you are forced to exit through a stone arch of all things. I had visions of my AC unit being scraped off but fears proved groundless. Overall an OK experience but not one that I would care to repeat.

We stayed here during the week to enjoy the late autumn colors. The campground was very quiet. There was good water pressure and power (50A). There is a good selection of channels on cable TV. The many shade trees prevented satellite reception. The shared hook-ups are annoying but the park was mostly empty so it wasn't a big deal. The large rig sites had too much slope and would require blocking for sure. There are nice people in the office. Unfortunately there is a hair-raising exit on Route 100 north-bound with a blind curve on your right hiding high speed traffic. The campground roads and sites need additional gravel to keep mud under control.

Date of Stay:

I rate this park quite high because it met all my requirements for an overnight stay. Easy access, no need to disconnect the toad, good services, and friendly staff. Nice, wide sites and easy turns makes for a trouble-free experience. All gravel roads and sites. First time I ever saw jackrabbits! I would definitely stay here again.

Rates reflects 10% KOA discount. Paved interior roads with speed bumps. Heavily treed but well trimmed. We had a gravel pull through site which was ample for our 38 foot RV with toad. The view from our site was of a row of very run-down permanents. Services were acceptable with good water pressure, good 50 amp electric, and cable TV. My biggest complaint would be the very tight curve I had to navigate when leaving. Worse yet, they had placed a line of steel posts inside the curve to keep people from driving on the grass. Outside the curve was a steep drop-off. Otherwise, an OK campground. I would probably look elsewhere before returning.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here for one night only. Has good gravel roads and sites with heavy tree cover. Easy turns. They made a long pull-through site for me by blocking the road behind me allowing my toad to remain in the camp road. Adequate electric, water, and cable TV. Very close to I-40. I can't imagine how tent campers could sleep here.

Date of Stay:

This is a very nice campground located far enough off the interstate that road noise is minimal. Level, gravel sites and gravel roads with sufficient space for maneuvering and slides. Good services well spaced. Very nice owner with a great attitude. Overall a very pleasant overnight stay.
