This park continues to be one of our favorites ---due to its beach, large, clean washrooms, biking/walking trails, golf course right in the park, nature centre, large sites and open skies . The area surrounding GSP is also top notch with lots of shopping, restaurants, golf courses, a movie theatre, boat rentals, arts and crafts, concerts and activities. The waiting list for next winter is well over 200 --- a testament to the park's popularity. The rate reflects the monthly rate. Wifi has improved but is still hit-and-miss.

This was about our ninth stay at GSP. It continues to be outstanding! The bike/walking trails are absolutely 10 out of 10. The beach is a short bike-ride or drive or a long walk but it is terrific. The golf course at the park is very good and reasonably priced. The 500 sites are large and quite private with few trees and open skies for lots of sun in the fall and easy satellite location for your TV. All sites are full hook-up. Wi-Fi has improved a lot and work is still being done on it. Lots of shopping, cinemas and restaurants close by.

This clean, neat, tiny park has had rave reviews on this website for a long time. It continues to impress us. Thousands of places in the world brag that their beach is #1. There is no #1 in world rankings for beaches but, in scoring, the beach at this park is a 10 out of 10. The sites are mostly quite large and private (some might say claustrophobic). A new Wi-Fi system is also wonderful. If you want TV, bring your satellite dish because there is no cable and no local TV. The area attracts lots of tourists so you can find here lots of shopping, restaurants, golf courses, fishing charters and boat rentals.

This was our fourth visit to this park. The campground is small but some sites are huge and the park is beautiful especially when the Christmas lights are on. One drawback to this park is that it is remote (20 minutes) from shopping. Don't let that fact deter you. Hiking and biking both in the park and at Big/Little Shoals are outstanding.

This was our first visit to Fort Wilderness Campground. It is a huge campground with 799 large, wooded sites and almost every amenity imaginable. From our loop, it was a short walk to see the evening fireworks and parade of boats. For the loops farther away, most guests used golf carts. Because most RVers have a dog, an excellent kennel is conveniently located about five minutes away. Transportation to and from Disney World by motor coach or boat is excellent right from the campground. We found the campground fees quite high especially when you consider that Wi-Fi is an extra charge.

This was our second visit to Koreshan. The Koreshan Historic tour is excellent. This park has little to offer inside unless a quiet time is your goal. The surrounding area is very busy but nice. We drove to Everglades City (1h 10 min.) for an airboat ride. It was well worth it. Sanibel Island is about an hour away, once again through heavy traffic. This park is clean and neat but some of the sites are quite small.

This was our first visit to BHSP. If you are approaching the Keys from I-95, get onto the FL Turnpike as soon as possible. Miami traffic is busy. Be prepared for a unique geographical area. The campground is quite small and space is at a premium. Traffic noise from the bridge can be bothersome. Surprisingly we learned that the beaches on the Keys are quite small relative to those in most parts of Florida. However, swimming and kayaking are popular at the park. Marathon and Big Pine have tons of restaurants. Key West is less than an hour's drive. The tram ride there is the best way to get introduced to Key West.

We had stayed in this park about seven years ago when we were new to RVing and drove a rented Class C. A hurricane had just devastated much of the park. We did not stay long and the park did not appeal to us. Now it has been rebuilt and it is fantastic. The sites and washrooms are new. All the sites in Pine Grove are huge with full hook-ups and nice landscaping. The hurricane took down the trees which might make for hot summers but in November the open skies were beautiful.

We stayed in this park six years ago when we were new to RVing and rented a Class C. At that time we didn't know what we were doing. ASP was just a blurred stopover. With six years and about 50 parks behind us, we can comment much better on this park. The park is very clean with a mix of large and small sites. All sites are heavily treed which gives shade but makes one feel a bit claustrophobic. On the upside, the beach is wonderful. Olde Town in St. Augustine is a great visit. There is an excellent beach which allows dogs on Ocean Trace Rd. Camping World is about 15 minutes away. St. Augustine amphitheater, a good concert venue, is within walking distance.

We have stayed in this park a couple of times on our way south. It is clean and neat with excellent customer service. It is a great stopover for snowbirds. We had to make a late reservation change due to truck trouble, and we were treated very well. We found the nature trail for the first time, and it is great!

Date of Stay:

This a terrific CG. We had planned to go to another one which we liked a lot but friends suggested we try Harbortown. It is ideal for over night such as us because of its proximity to I-75. Huge, clean and neat sites and great service at check-in. Wi-Fi was very good. There is lots of space to walk/run your dog. Open skies make for lots of sunshine.

Date of Stay:

This was our first visit to KHPC. It is a very large park-like CG with huge sites and within walking distance to the Horse Park. There is a good combination of trees and open space giving both sun and shade. Take a tour to the KY Horse Farms: outstanding!

This park was great! The registration folks were very efficient. The sites were large and clean. The Wi-Fi was excellent. The downside is that there is not a lot to do in the area. Berea seemed good but 2-3 hours in the craft stores is plenty. The Renfro Valley Music shows would be great I'm sure but check ahead to make sure they are on. If you get here out of season, there aren't many shows. There is a terrific pioneer village near the music hall.

Date of Stay:

This was an overnighter for us and for that I give it full marks. It is convenient to I-75. The registration was fast and very efficient. The washrooms were spotless. On the downside, the sites were incredibly small. A good one night park but that is all we could see it for.

We have stayed at this park several times. Despite a few shortcomings, it is our favorite, out of about 50 parks we have visited. Shortcomings include poor Wi-Fi, high price and tired washrooms. This is compensated by the neat, clean look, the landscaping, solid staff, spectacular beach, pool, cabins nearby, trails all in a beautiful area great for biking, hiking, shopping, dining and golf.
