This was our first stay at this park and we were very pleased. Our site was very long and narrow with a grill and large picnic table. Cell phone reception (AT&T) was spotty and reception with Dish unpredictable due to trees. Our site backed up to water, but was pretty much obscured by the mangroves. Being FL in August we were pleasantly surprised to be fairly mosquito free. The beaches were nice, uncrowded and we traveled all of the park on our bikes. Dog walking was not a problem and there were several areas in the pet section where you could get additional bags if needed. We are looking forward to returning again.

This was our first trip to this campground. We chose a waterfront site with full hook-up. The site was excellent and we shared it with several iguanas. The dog park was clean and there was no "stuff" left behind from previous dogs. The staff were friendly and helpful supplying information about Key West. We will be bringing our boat the next trip and there is separate boat parking close to campsites; launching is free if you are staying there. We will definitely come again!

This campground is adjacent to the country store. We were pleasantly surprised to find 50 amp electric, good water pressure and excellent Wi-Fi. The sites are very level and are of asphalt grindings. Our pull-through site accommodated our 42 ft. motorhome pulling a 20 ft. trailer and the Yukon with a few feet to spare. The store offers the best selection of fresh meat found in any specialty meat shop. There are a variety of other specialty foods for sale. Interstate 75 is easily visible, but the road noise did not bother us. There was a nice flat field where we walked the dogs. Our overnight stay included a certificate for 2 free breakfasts in the country store. We will definitely stay here again and if not staying, will still stop to purchase some of their wonderful homemade sausage and jerky. The owner introduced himself, and the staff was excellent.

We stayed here one night on our way to Florida. Our site was level and gravel, slightly narrow but was able to accommodated slides on both sides. We were pulling a 20 ft. trailer behind the motorhome, and we just fit in the pull through site. The K9 camp was great for our dogs to romp after a day of driving. There was no dog waste in the area. The escort to our site gave my husband suggestions as to which way to "hang" to make the turns. Wi-Fi worked well from our site. We would stay here again for the night.

I had made reservations and told the owner that we would be arriving around 3PM. The motorhome overheated with a broken belt (14 miles from our exit) and I called to tell him that we should cancel, because I wasn't sure if/when a repair would occur. At 10pm, we were ready to roll and I called asking if our site was still available and could we still come. Owner was pleasant and said yes then calling back and saying he would meet us in Galax as the road to the campground is dark and winding. We followed him to the campground and his wife had sent pumpkin raisin muffins with him which proved a wonderful late night snack. Our site was a pull through gravel base and was very level. Cable and Wi-Fi were and added bonus to the wonderfully naturalized site. We did not have AT&T reception for the cell, but the excellent Wi-Fi let us text to keep in touch at home. The park is in downtown Fries, and in walking distance to the New River Trail, town park, Fries Theater (great jam sessions on Thursday evenings) and a good Mexican Restaurant. Bring a bicycle as the trail is quite scenic along the river. Canoes, kayaks and bikes are available to rent close by. Dog walking was slightly restrictive but we had no trouble. This park surely is a classic form of Southern Hospitality and we will definitely return.

We stayed here on our way to southern FL and then again on the return trip home. The sites are level concrete pull-throughs. We were pulling a trailer and had an additional vehicle which were accommodated on our site. The previous postings about air traffic are correct, but we were not bothered by the noise. The flea market across the fence was a great place to walk the dogs. The bar mentioned in a prior post is only open on weekends. We checked it out on a Friday and found the owners and the customers friendly and it made for great people watching. We used to stay in Walterboro,SC at the New Green Acres campground; but this additional 2 hr drive (southbound) is definitely worth it. There is delivery from the Sun Sun chinese restaurant to your site (menus available in office) and we utilized them on both trips. We will definitely stop here again.

We have stayed at this campground numerous times since 2003 and this was the worst visit. Previously we have stayed in sites 3, 5, or 7 which have been level and easy access. This time, we had site 32 which was an easy access site. The major problem was that the site was so unlevel that the front tires on both sides were probably 5 inches off the ground and the front tire on the tag axle on the passenger side was off the ground also. We pulled up so far to try and level that the sewer hose did not reach even with an extension. As usual, Wi-Fi, dog walking, and convenience to I77 were great. We will stay here again only if guaranteed to have a single number site.

We stopped here on our way to Florida. The $19 was Passport America rate and was paid in cash (could use a check). The sites were all on grass and parking is alternated so there is some room between campers, but still very close. We were escorted to our site which was good as after dark might have been difficult to find. The site was fairly level. Tengo internet was available and connectivity was good. The dog walk area was great and fairly dog waste free. We would stay here again only if it was not raining.

We stayed here on our way to Florida. We were escorted to our site which was long enough to accommodate our 42ft, towing a 20ft boat and a jeep. The sites were gravel and fairly level (-2), we were unable to get wifi (-1) from our site #104. When leaving the campground, the tree limbs needed a trim for those of us who have a higher vision level. We would stay here again when traveling through the area.

We stayed here for a week for an Allegro Club Rally. The campground is well laid out with gravel sites and concrete patios. They had just added fresh gravel to the sites so some were a little unlevel but they were leveling sites as needed. I agree with the previous reviewer about the sewer hookups being too high: don't know what they were thinking. Cable TV worked great and Wi-Fi was good most of the time. They have a wonderful dog walk area but you must walk through someone's yard if all of the sites are full which I felt guilty about doing. We would stay here again if in the area.

We used this campground as an overnight stop. It is about 3-4 miles from the interstate, but easy to find. The sites were long enough for our 42' and toad, but extremely close together. The Wi-Fi worked well and so did the cable TV. There was a large dog walking area. We would stop here again when traveling in the vicinity.

We stopped here for an overnight break. The office was empty when we arrived, but a note said to pick a site as all were full hookup. The pull throughs were long enough to accommodate our 42' and toad. There had been excessive rain and we had to dodge some puddles, but our site was fairly level with good amperage and water pressure. The cable TV worked well, but I could not get Wi-Fi in my site. The sign on the door says to pick a spot close to the office for good Wi-Fi reception. The dog walk area was large and drained fairly well. The owners were extremely nice and because of this, we would probably stay here again.

We stopped here overnight while traveling from Texas to Tennessee. The directions said to go 0.2 miles from exit, and we missed the entrance requiring us to travel another mile to find a place to turn around. The entrance says RV Park, but didn't see the actual name anywhere. The entrance is deceiving as it looks like you are turning into a convenience store/gas station. The office staff was pleasant and inquired if we would be leaving at any time during our stay; if so, you needed a gate card which was $20 deposit. The sites were level concrete and were not stacked on top of each other. Dog walking was available by walking on the grass of unused sites. There was dog waste on almost every site. The cable and Wi-Fi worked great. We used our gate card to get breakfast from McDonalds which is just outside of the gate, but when I wanted to return my card at 8:30, there was no one available in the office (opens at 8) so I returned it to the convenience store and then stood in the rain waiting for my husband to exit. There was considerable road noise from I-10 and a nearby train track. We would only stay here as a last resort.

We stayed at Broke Mill for 3 nights while seeing the sites in the Del Rio area. This is a new park which has all of the amenities. I would rate this a 9.5 with the only minus being crushed stone pads instead of concrete. The sites were level, and spacious with enough room for our 42 ft. motorhome and toad. The crushed stone extended so that we had a patio. Dog walking was great as they have a mile + where you can walk your dogs off leash. The Wi-Fi signal was strong and the cable was good. The laundry had 5 washers and dryers with the cost of $1.25. The washers were large and the propane dryers dried well. The laundry room was adjacent to an area with a TV, computer, book exchange and small kitchen area. Next door was a well stocked fitness room with treadmill, elliptical, bow flex, stationary bike, free weights with bench and something else that we didn't use. The restrooms were clean,handicapped accessible as were the showers. We were lucky enough to be there when the owner and his band rehearsed. The large event room complete with stage provided us an evening with excellent free entertainment. Staff also assisted us with finding a great restaurant (Fisherman's) and sightseeing information. This is probably the best thought out and laid out park we have been too. We look forward to staying here again.

I have never rated a park a"10" until I stayed at Buckhorn Lake. We stayed here for a week while visiting the Texas Hill Country. Our site faced a creek (pull in-back out). We had a large concrete pad for the RV and toad and a large concrete patio with a table and chairs. The grass was manicured as if it were a golf green. The dog walking areas were large and I did not see where anyone left "dog business". The Wi-Fi was fast, cable channels and movie availability were wonderful. Although we did not use the fitness area it was available to us. We will stay here again if in the Kerrville area.
