Mud: We were earlier than usual for our trip North, and the site was very muddy. New gravel/slush helped, but that tracked in too. There is no way you can connect a normal sewer hose to a motorhome without disconnecting your toad. Seems more set up for 5th wheels. 57 is rough and your exit is even rougher than the highway. There is no road noise and a very nice staff.

Okay for an overnight. Store is well stocked, staff is nice. Location is right by the Interstate and you'll have some road noise. There are many permanents here. We did not have to disconnect the toad and that is always a plus.

Rate is Passport. This has been a stop in the past for an overnight. It continues to be a decent stop. The site this time, was not level. If they have a site in the "upper, front" section: take it. Those seem to be more level.

We were able to drop back in for our 4th visit or so. Grounds are being kept up better than we noticed in November. They have great staff. Owners for the most part are friendly, however our most recent visit had some very snooty owners next door. This is a large resort with large sites. An 'older' crowd lives here. If you are planning to come to Titusville for a shuttle launch, TGO is a great place to stay. Using some easily found back roads, you can be at the river (and great launch viewing) within about 20 minutes by car.

We have stayed here several times. Most recently, the grounds are not as well kept as in the past, but still nice. There is a 15mph speed limit in the park and for the most part the cars stay at or below that. Owner golf carts are another matter. They do speed. Everyone seems very nice at the resort. There is a great nature trail and several areas that are nice for dogs. As stated earlier, we were disappointed that our rental pool site had high grass in the back due to lack of cutting at the back end area. Short cut that shows. Several restaurants near would be Steve's for breakfast and Corky Bell's seafood for lunch or dinner. On site Eagles Pride RV repair is okay but very high priced. Propane is now available from the resort. A new restaurant has opened and serves cafe type breakfast and lunch on property and good prices but very slow service. We have stayed in many places and The Great Outdoors remains one of our top stops.

This a nice, well managed campground. We were in the 'E' section. Our only complaints are road noise from I-295 and dust from the gravel roads. There is an area that is paved. E section seems more roomy. If you are traveling to this campground via I-295N you might consider taking the exit just south (Dunn road) and going East to Lem Turner and then north. This will allow you to avoid a terrible intersection turn and is only about 3 miles out of the way. If in the area again, we would stay in this campground.

This was a nice three night stay. Savannah is wonderful and very close. The staff was very nice. The store is well stocked, they even have RV bulbs and fuses. The sites are not concrete, they are sandy/grass. This was okay with us as we did not expect much more, especially for the price. The cable was good. There was some HD TV off air access. There are limited satellite sites. There are a limited number of big rig sites. There is some road noise, which was hidden when we ran a fan. The lake was nice and peaceful, with plenty of waterfowl. The park is dog friendly. They lead you to your site and pick up trash at site. The internet was robust. We are not sure why a previous review was so negative.

A nice campground. Sites seem level. Staff is nice. Cable is robust. Good signal on Wi-Fi but speed was very slow for downloads. Dog friendly. Easy off and on I-95. Our Pull-Through was plenty long to not have to disconnect. Gravel sites with nice grass yard area. Gravel was large sized so you don't track tons of it in the coach. Cell coverage was weak. AT&T was edge coverage no 3G and Sprint had no Edge coverage. Nice small sized KOA with active management and many of the features of a larger facility. Well maintained. This is a reasonably priced stop along the way.

As far as we could tell, the Williamsburg section of the park is not in use. We were in the Colonial section. We requested a site with satellite access and were told that would require a 'super site'. Upon arrival, we re-confirmed at the desk that our 'super' site would have satellite access. Once we arrived, I thought access looked difficult but set up anyway. I gave up trying and selected the cable TV which was robust. Shortly, a camper knocked on our door wondering if we had satellite access. He could not get it either. There was an unexpected $5 'resort' charge even on cold and wet days. Site was a back-in and was supposed to be plenty long for our coach and car. Very close but we could park the car cross-ways on some grass and got in. Upon entry to the park there is a tree limb that will scratch the top of your coach. I told the staff about it twice, they acknowledged others had complained. When we exited (a day early) the limb was still dragging across the top: so beware. The campground handout says you must take your garbage to a dumpster that is far away. While walking there in the rain, we learned that in fact they do have site pick up. There is a nice cable TV system but no guide is available. The grounds are good for dog walking but watch for the ticks. Staff was friendly but unresponsive to the limb issue. With some management, customer care changes (such as printing a cable guide, re-printing the campground handout with some accurate information), staff understanding of site size and tree coverage and a lower price this could be a nice place to stay a day or two. If in the area again, we would not stay here.

This is a nice campground. Overall, you can't do better in the area. The premium sites were okay and they provided clear sky for sat. The premium sites give you a little extra room and a rather tired patio furniture set, otherwise we did not notice much difference than some of the other sites. Staff is great and helpful. Store is well stocked with RV parts and such. The "parts lady" was either on vacation or away (both) during our entire 6 day visit. Staff seemed to wonder where she was and when she would be around. We did want to buy some parts, needed a little help. This campground has the most serious campground RV parts store I have ever seen. Wi-Fi was robust. Cable was robust. There is a small restaurant on-site with very reasonably priced breakfast. Metro stop is near. Grocery shopping is near. Traffic on the beltway is horrible, very aggressive drivers! The only reasons that this place does not get a 10 are: back-in premium sites had connections near the front of site which required really long runs of electric, sewer and cable. Some coaches park very far forward to compensate for this issue. The other reason is that there did not seem to be enforcement of dog walking rules that we followed but some others don't. Some dogs were off lead and pickup was not promoted as well as expected. Cleaned shoes three times. We would return to this campground but would consider a different area than the pricey premium sites.

Once you find it, this is a nice small park. The pull through sites are limited. There is a heavy tree cover at this park but the cable TV is robust. An accurate channel listing would have been helpful. Nicely stocked small store. Staff is good. Water pressure was very low on some days. If you plan to go toward the DC area from here, ask for directions: that will let you avoid driving your coach through downtown Gettysburg (narrow streets and a round-about). A beautiful country setting. We really enjoyed our stay and would do so again.

Date of Stay:

The large pull through sites are nice. Price is very high for the area, and most sites were empty in the newer and more expensive section. Staff was very good and this park is a dog friendly park. The town is not so great. If we were passing through the area again and needed an overnight, we would stop here. There's a nice pizza place within walking distance.

We requested a site that would have satellite access. After driving pretty far within the campground and past a bunch of empty 'satellite-able' sites we parked in our site: under two giant trees! We did not feel like going back to the office and stayed where we were placed. Staff should know more about what is clear sky and what is not. This park is nothing special: the sites seem large and access was easy off the highway.

Date of Stay:

A nice wide pull through site. We did not get in the area that we were promised but the site in the 60's was fine. When we checked in there was such a line that we had to wait on the side of the county road. Once in, we were told someone would guide us to our site. The guide never showed so we made our way on our own. A very narrow turn later (barely missed having to disconnect our toad) we found our site and were pleased with the width, length and levelness of the site. You should wait for the guide who later explained he would never guide us in the way the check in person marked on the map! We would stay here again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

A nice level gravel site. Access was easy enough. The sewer connection is in an odd location. Site 65 has a light pole that you might want to avoid if you are towing and don't want to disconnect your toad. We were able to get our coach around it upon exit since the campground across the road was empty. Dog friendly.
