Corinth Recreation Area, Double Springs, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

This is the best park/campground we have ever been too! Clean and well maintained. Sites are paved, big, and level. Sites are separated by trees and bushes. All sites have well located full hookup and 50 amp. Everyone we meet was friendly. All roads are paved with plenty of room to maneuver. We camped at Corinth Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Old Stone Fort State Park, Manchester, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This an older park with an new bridge at its campground entrance. This is NOT A BIG RIG PARK. The bridge is narrow with low weight limits. Trees are low and roads are narrow. This is a fantastic park for small travel trailers and pop-ups, with lots of trees in a natural setting. The web site for the park mentions the bridge but does not mention the width or weight restrictions. Great area for nature lovers. Did not accept Golden Access Pass as Tenn did in the past. We camped at Old Stone Fort State Park in a Motorhome.

Fort Massac State Park, Metropolis, Illinois

Date of Stay: October, 2009 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Well shaded big level sites. Friendly helpfully people. They have a reenactment at the Fort every Oct. We arrived the night the reenactment was breaking up making it hard to get in the campground. If you can avoid the reenactment weekend or arrive well before the reenactment, this is a nice park. We rated this way because there are only 5 50amp sites. We camped at Fort Massac State Park in a Motorhome.

Cave-in-Rock State Park, Cave-In-Rock, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2009 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice shady state park. Lots of well mowed grass in the center of the park with a heavily wooded area surrounding the park. Sites are paved, with some sites having a paved parking area. On the negative side: there is only 30 amp electric at the sites. From the camp you can hear the barge and ferry traffic on the river. It is an easy drive to Garden of the Gods or other scenic areas. We camped at Cave-in-Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

Fox Ridge State Park, Charleston, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2009 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground has two loops. The front loop is 50 amp and has a handfull of reservable sites: most are level and secluded. The back loop is mostly 30amp. All sites are electric only. During the week this park is so quiet that the owls will wake you during the night. Best sites for bigger rigs are on the front loop on the opposite side from the reservable sites. Entry roads are paved but narrow. Dump station and showers are clean and well maintained. The sites are gravel with picnic table, light stand, and fire ring. Like most Illinois State Parks: there are no alcholic drinks permitted. Cell phone reception is very limited: without a booster we had no signal, with a cell signal booster we got three bars. We camped at Fox Ridge State Park in a Motorhome.

Gun Creek Campground - COE, Whittington, Illinois

Date of Stay: November, 2008 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

Only reason this is not 'perfect 10' is no water/sewer. Otherwise this is one of our favorite campgrounds, especially since it stays open until the end of November when most nearby state and Corps of Engineers (COE) campgrounds are closed. We have used it only for easy one night stopovers along I-57. It is easily accessible from the interstate. We intend to come back and stay longer to enjoy the beautiful lakeside sites. Rate is based on them being COE which means they accept America the Beautiful Access Pass. We camped at Gun Creek Campground - COE in a Motorhome.

Marion Campground & RV Park, Marion, Illinois

Date of Stay: November, 2008 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This is for us a great overnight stop off I-57. We've used it twice now. The owners are friendly and accommodating. It is very easy off and on interstate with pull-thgough sites. It is well lighted for walking dogs and open all year. It is very clean - only one year old. We have gone to nearby national award-winning 17th Street Bar and Grill both times we stayed -- awesome BBQ ribs and brisket. We camped at Marion Campground & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Edgar Evins State Park, Silver Point, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2008 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

A beautiful park. A few platforms are long enough and flat enough for our 38' motorhome. We placed ours on an angle. It was a unique way to hang out over the lake and trees. The shower house was clean, and warm with plenty of hot water and water pressure. There is very good food at Park's Marina Galley restaurant. There are beautiful vista views from visitor's center. Be careful to check wooden platform for nails before parking since tenters often use nails to hold down tents. Great price since it accepts 'America the Beautiful Access Pass'. It is open all year -- we shared entire campground with only one other motorhome. We camped at Edgar Evins State Park in a Motorhome.

Cedarbrook RV Park & Campgrounds, Mulberry Grove, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2008 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice place, nice people. Don't use their water--it smells and tastes bad. Is really nice place for overnighting if you don't use the water. Would be nice place for longer stays if they get the water fixed. With good water they would rate 8 or 9. We camped at Cedarbrook RV Park & Campgrounds in a Motorhome.

Beaver Dam State Park, Plainview, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2008 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice state park with beautiful lake and good restaurant. A limited number of sites for bigger rigs and a limited number of 50 amp sites. Sites are well shaded with helpful host and workers. Entrance roads are paved and in good shape. Campground roads are narrow and tree lined. Because of this, you should drive you towed vehicle through the campground before you drive your rig in as there are some places you may not want to drive a larger motorhome. If more sites had 50 amp I'd have given the park a higher rating. We camped at Beaver Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

Large spacious sites under mature trees. Friendly hosts and friendly campers. Camped here in a 40ft motorhome and had several sites to choose from.

Lazy Day Campground, Danville, Missouri

Date of Stay: April, 2008 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice place. Many clubs like to stay here because they have buildings that they can gather in. Staff is extremely helpful. Sites are plenty big for large rigs and the sites I saw were pull through. The front of the campground is a little cramped but the further back into the campground there is more space. The area around the campground is heavily wooded giving the campground a secluded feel. We camped at Lazy Day Campground in a Motorhome.

Date of Stay: December, 2007 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here in early December. The front area has pull through sites and is level. Only a few sites have 50 amp service. Lots of trees. There are trails to take you to the giant city stones and to a prehistoric wall. Lots of places to go wine tasting in the area. We camped at Giant City State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:      

We were here in chilly November and still liked the park and area. It is not fancy. There are lots of trees and deer. The Ferne Clyffe and the trail that takes you to them is a must see! Most sites were level, tree covered, with 30 amp service. We camped in a 40 foot motor home. We camped at Ferne Clyffe State Park in a Motorhome.

DeSoto Resort State Park, Fort Payne, Alabama

Date of Stay: November, 2007 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

We were very pleased with this park. When we called they had no full hookup sites available but when we got there they had upgraded us to a full hookup site. The pull-through sites are asphalt, very large, clean, and level. The park is only about 8-10 miles from Little River Canyon which had some of the most awesome autumn foliage and scenery we've experienced. If you don't feel like cooking every meal, there's a lodge that has both buffet and a full-service menu, with good food at reasonable prices. I would have liked to have stayed longer than 3 nights in order to have taken in more of the local sites and the numerous hiking trails. I'm sure this would also be a great place to visit in the spring when there has been more rain to feed the many nearby waterfalls and when the azaleas that are numerous in the area are in bloom. If you have a big rig, and are coming in from the north, you might consider NOT taking exit 213 off of I-59 but waiting to exit 222 and coming in through Fort Payne. The exit 213 route is a lot of narrow winding road through mountainous terrain. We would have rated this park a 10 except for two things. We think they should allow you to reserve specific campsites instead of just a certain type so that we can have less worry that we won't have the length or level site that our big rig requires. Second, the signs off of interstate I-59 and even some places in the park need to be updated as, due to age, they are missing arrows or are hard to read. We will definitely make a point to find our way back to this park! We camped at DeSoto Resort State Park in a Motorhome.
