Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park, Macon, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Only stayed here two nights but if in the area would definitely stay here again. The park is very clean, with multiple campsites and other facilities (marina, beach, pavilion, picnic shelters, disc golf). The park is close to Macon, so there are lots of options if you need a city. The park is very quiet at night (at least while we were there) and there are lots of places to walk in the park, as well as bike. I imagine this may be a very different experience in the summer, but in the fall it was quite nice. We camped at Lake Tobesofkee Claystone Park in a Motorhome.

Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah, Georgia

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

This is a beautiful state park with multiple sites, including some pull through and full hookup (though we had only water and 50 amp). There are multiple bathhouses with clean restrooms and showers, and some also have laundry machines. There are lots of trails in the park, which is on a coastal island, so the trails (and the park itself) is quite scenic. Park is easily accessible and is only a few minutes from Savannah. The park has an interpretive center and a shop/store/office. Groceries are only a few minutes away. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Hike the trails, and visit the Pin Point Heritage Museum. Of course a trip into the historic district of Savannah is worthwhile.

Cary State Forest, Bryceville, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

I’m hesitant to write this review because I don’t want people to come here—we want this to ourselves. This is a small (7 sites) USDA campground. We have 50 amp and water—no sewer. Very quiet, very peaceful and very well maintained. This is NOT a site for someone who wants all the amenities, but it is a site for those who want quiet and beauty. There are trails in the forest area, and there are bike lanes on the highway by the park and a bike trail about 7 miles from the park. It is about 30 minutes to Jacksonville if you need a city, and a bit more to the coast. There is a campground host and park rangers. At night it is quiet (with the exception of trains on occasion) and dark—no artificial lighting. We camped at Cary State Forest in a Motorhome.

Gun Creek Campground - COE, Whittington, Illinois

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

Traveling through and needed a one night stay. We like COE parks in general and this was another nice one. There are a number of different loops in the park area, which is situated around Rend Lake. The closer you get to the lake, the less level the sites. We had a good and level site, with water, sewer and 50 amp. Nearing the end of the season, but still nice and green. Lots of outdoor activities, and a god size town only a few miles away. We would use again, and would like to try in the summer. We camped at Gun Creek Campground - COE in a Motorhome.

Dam Complex Campgrounds COE, Iowa City, Iowa

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

We stayed at the Tailwater West campground at the Dam Complex COE. The weather was a bit cool, and the water was a bit high on the river outflow from the dam. The campground, however, was excellent. We had water and 50 amp; there are also sites with sewer. The campground is not easy to get to from I-80, but it was nice once we were there. There are multiple camp sites as part of the Dam Complex. We would love to come back to this site in the summer, as they were getting near the end of the season when we were there. Iowa City is about 10 minutes away, with lots to do in the city. The campground has trails, fishing, picnic areas and a fossil gorge for exploration. We camped at Dam Complex Campgrounds COE in a Motorhome.

Land of Memories Campground, Mankato, Minnesota

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Needed a couple of nights in the Mankato area and decided to give Land of Memories a try. The site was closing for the season in a couple of days, but when we were there all was open. The park has greatly improved in the past few years with a new loop west of the main and older campground. No sewer or water, but 50 amp, very long and level sites, and easy in and out. Land of Memories is a city park with soccer fields, disc golf, river access and the PowWow grounds—a very popular park. The park does have a reputation for partying and loudness, but while we were there it was nice and quiet—of course, the fact that it started snowing the day we left may have had something to do with it. The city of Mankato is just a few minutes away for any needed supplies. We camped at Land of Memories Campground in a Motorhome.

Tiell park Campground (formerly St. James City Park Camp), Saint James, Minnesota

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We had beers staying at a CG in Madelia, about 15 minutes east of here. With weather forecasts calling for heavy rain and a flood watch, we moved here because the sites are concrete pads. We were only here 2 nights, but we are very happy with the campground. The sites, as noted, are concrete and level, with a mix of pull through and back-in. Sites have 50 amp, water and sewer. Recycling and trash dump at park. There are bathrooms as well, and a shelter. The campground is on the lakeshore—I imagine in the summer this is quite busy, but in October we pretty much have the place to ourselves. We would consider returning should we be back in the area. No cable, but good over the air TV, good cell (verizon) service, and free WiFi that works! We camped at Tiell park Campground (formerly St. James City Park Camp) in a Motorhome.

Watona Park, Madelia, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

The good stuff first: excellent camp host, nice and convenient location, well maintained and a great deal—we stayed for two months for $500 a month. Water, sewer, 50 amp and free WiFi. Decent verizon signal, and OK over the air TV. Town is small but has a good grocery store and an excellent Mexican restaurant as well as a micro-Brewery. The not so good—the campground floods. It is on the river, and it was closed early in the summer and then almost closed again in late September. In the meantime, the sites are gravel/grass on the outer ring, and all grass in the middle. And when it rains, the campground middle becomes a lake. We had to be towed out (thank you Good Sam and Geifer’s Towing) from the middle on Labor Day, and as soon as we pulled into one of the outer ring sites (which are gravel/grass), we sunk right back in—got ourselves out of that one but it was a mess. Would be nice to see investment in concrete or asphalt pads, or at least more gravel/crushed rock. We camped at Watona Park in a Motorhome.

Burnidge Forest Preserve, Paul Wolff Campground, Elgin, Illinois

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

There are already lots of good reviews but wanted to do ours. We really enjoyed this campground. It is clean, quiet, very well-maintained. There are a lot of good sites and some not quite as good for a motorhome (too much slope), but all sites are paved. Water is available, but this is one of the knocks in that there are shared sources for up to six users at once, and even with 75 feet of hose, we couldn't reach. No sewer (so the second knock) but there are dump station. Location is very convenient to stores and restaurants and there is a train line to Chicago only a few miles away. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Burnidge Forest Preserve, Paul Wolff Campground in a Motorhome.
