This small, rural campground wins the prize for Friendliest, Most Helpful Hostess of All time. We showed up on the wrong day, at the wrong time, and somehow she made everything work for us, including changing our site and extending our stay for a day. The park is well maintained with ample sized sites with good utilities and, the most rare thing among RV parks - good, strong Wi-Fi. Closest RV park to the state park where you can hunt for diamonds and keep what you find If you stay more than 1 night the park gives free lessons on how to hunt for diamonds and will loan you equipment at no charge. No amenities like pool, etc., but nevertheless we think it's the best place to stay in Murfreesboro.

Beautiful, immaculately maintained rural campground near Waco, Texas. Located in huge fields on a stream that provides a great breeze on hot days and some swimmin' holes. VERY quiet in the evenings except as noted below. SUPER nice hostess who was very helpful and friendly. Unfortunately the weekend host was not available when we tried to check in, making our Saturday check in difficult, but the hostess/manager returned our call after a couple of hours and got everything sorted out. Back in sites along the stream are beautiful and partly shaded - suitable for a longer stay and, in fact, most appeared to be taken by long termers. Why a 7? 1) Many of the sites are "shared" sites - 2 sets of hookups in a semi-level very dusty wide gravel space at each end of the site. Hookups "head to tail" but side by side so you're not lined up. We were quite close to our neighbor. 2) Our site was fairly near the entrance and after our neighbor pulled out it became a freeway - rather than driving down to the actual entrance people were driving through the vacant half of our site at literally all hours of the day and night, thus the noise I mentioned above. Final note: if you visit I recommend you not access the park from the south; there's a load rated bridge (21,000 lbs tandem axle) on Grieg Road. If you come in from the north on Grieg Road there's no issue.

Beautiful place - highly recommended. Huge, shaded campsites with excellent water/electric utilities and beautiful views. Incredibly quiet. Only thing that keeps it from a 10 is no sewer but there is a dump station. The museum is fascinating if small, and the store/craft demonstrations are fun. Don't miss the views of the historic Suwanee River. Lots of beautiful hiking trails and canoes/bikes for rent at the store. We'll stay here again.

Nice place for a 1, 2, 3 day stopover. Next to the freeway but the noise didn't seem obtrusive, probably because of our ACs. Lady at the desk was very friendly and helpful. Streets are paved and wide enough to maneuver easily in our 37 ft RV with tow. All sites are gravel pull-throughs. They're not "generous" but are big enough for slides. Utilities are good. We'd stop over here again.

One of the best maintained campgrounds we've stayed at - it's really immaculate. Easily accessible. We had a nice pull through, spacious site with good utilities, grassy area, and patio. Very friendly people. Pet friendly. Quite at night except for the occasional train in the distance. One odd thing. The water and sewer connections are actually in our driveway so caution is needed when pulling in. Not too convenient to services like banks, grocery stores, etc. Only complaint: Like many (most) campgrounds the WiFi at our site is weak to the point of being unusable. We would certainly stay here again.

Spacious sites with fire pits and picnic tables. We had a nice pull through. Nice fenced dog run. Nothing is paved and it can be dusty. Some of the sites are shaded although ours was not. Noise from the adjacent Interstate and train tracks but we didn't find it obtrusive. Utilities are good. We had a problem with a weak breaker when we arrived but it was fixed within 15 minutes after we reported it. There is a restaurant/steak house on site with excellent steak! The night we were there an Elvis impersonator put on a 2 hour outdoor dinner show and we had a ball along with a great dinner. We would certainly stay here again.

Coming into town on 287 turn north on Commerce. You'll see the entrance to the city park; go through the gate, bear to the right, go to the end and you'll see the RV sites. Sites aren't huge but we had space for our rig, car and both slides with no problem. 4 of the 5 sites had working electricity and water (the water faucets looked a little scary and we used our own water), and all had nice picnic tables on concrete slabs. Clean and well maintained - no trash laying around and grass was cut. No sewer hookup or dump station or the rating would be higher. Close to a very pretty little lake with lighted walking trails circling the lake - nice place to walk or sit out had the weather been cooler. Quiet except for the occasional train whistle. Good for a night or two. Rate is $15 on the honor system.

$19 per night reflects the Passport America rate, cash. Extra charge for CC. Same discount for Escapees, Good Sam, and other memberships. Just bring your card to the office. A nice, basic little urban park on Historic Rte 66. The check-in lady was super nice and helpful, putting us in a long pull-through without my even asking, escorted us to the site, and helped us set up. They should all be like her. The park is clean and well maintained. This is a good place for a short stopover (2-3-4 nights) to explore the area.

Very nice campground next to the river. Big sites, all with 30/50 amp electric, but no water or sewer. I saw one water fill, but it's at the end of one of the sites so if someone is parked there I think you're out of luck. Did not see a dump station at all. Recommend you fill and dump before arriving - we used the Flying J southeast of town. Sites are gravel with thick grass everywhere else. Very secluded, quiet and scenic at the end of a mile long good gravel road. Next door to Buffalo Bill's home and close to the Golden Spike Tower at Bailey Yards (highly recommended.) With a water hookup and a dump station this place is an easy 10. We'll return to this campground.

Very nice place to spend a few days and a real bargain at $15 including electric. Very near the fabulous Stuhr Museum, which is well worth a visit. Campground is immaculately maintained and super clean with lots of thick green grass around the sites. Very friendly, helpful staff. No water/sewer hookups but water fill and dump available. Since the water fill hose was laying on the ground at the dump station I don't think we'd use it. VERY narrow but passable (to our 37 foot MH) access roads. We were about 50 feet from the train tracks but no trains so it was very quiet. We would return without a doubt.

An urban campground right next to I-75 so there was some traffic noise, but it was pretty minimal considering. They offer Good Sam, AARP and Military discounts (including retired Military.) Convenient (1.5 miles) to grocery, restaurants, WalMart. Picturesque campground with lots of trees dripping with Spanish moss, a stream with ducks, and a pond. Despite the trees, navigation was easy, and we got excellent satellite reception. BEST WiFi (free) of any campground we've ever stayed in. Many seasonal campers, but campground was very clean and well maintained. Roads and sites are not paved but are smooth and easy to drive, at least in dry weather. Sites vary from very small and narrow to very large (ours was large.) Very friendly staff. Good place to stay in Ocala and definitely recommended. 9 Instead of 10 because the sand patio areas caused us to track a lot of dirt into the RV.

Date of Stay:

Two stars because of the terrific facilities, i.e., pool, club house, etc. Otherwise 1 star or less. It is not really an RV park at all, but more intended for park models with permanent or long term residents; we saw very few RV's. It is very, very, very crowded and close together with narrow streets and small spaces. If you are claustrophobic or dislike being (literally) 12 inches from your neighbor this is not the place for you. It is definitely not worth the $40 rate even for an overnight but the only game in town. Despite the high cost they do not accept credit cards and take cash or check only. We definitely won't return.

Nice and clean and very friendly people in the office. Free Wi-Fi is a definite plus. Unfortunately everything is so close together, small and tight it's very difficult to maneuver and uncomfortable - claustrophobic for sure. If you have a pop up or a small rig with 1 or no slides you'd be OK. Our 37 foot MH with tow was hard to move around. We wound up parking in the middle of the street to register and almost hit a fence with the MH and the tow car trying to maneuver. The site is barely wider than the rig, (length is fine.) When extended our slide is about 24 inches from our neighbor. Although the facilities are pleasant we won't return here just because it's so cramped.

Highly recommended. We usually avoid KOAs because of add on fees, high prices, and small sites. Since we were somewhat desperate we decided to stay here. We were amazed. GREAT place. Immaculately clean, well maintained, beautifully landscaped. Great facilities - pool, spa, mini-golf, fenced dog runs. Nice, large sites with plenty of room!! SUPER friendly people in the office - we were greeted with warm, fresh baked cookies and led to our site. We're not Good Sam but office lady searched until she found a way to give us a discount off the full rate. No add on's - 50 amp same as 30, no fee for pool, etc. Only reason it's not a 10+ is $39 a night (after discount) still seems steep to me. We're already planning to go back for a longer stay even with the high price.

Perhaps the most overpriced (relative to what you get) CG we've stayed at in many years. A beautiful office building and pool area apparently soaked up all the money that should have been used on the sites and, especially, the very narrow, tight interior roads. The "RESORT" ends just past the office. Many (very many) long term residents with varying degrees of trash around their sites. High speeds throughout the CG, including a very loud, very fast motorcycle (and I like Harley's.) It has one, and only one, redeeming virtue - it's the only game in town, as shown by the fact they're consistently full. We certainly wouldn't stay here if we had any choice.
