This was an overnight stop just off I10. The pull through site was in the open so the rooftop dish and OTA antenna worked well. Verizon voice and hotspot also worked well. The utilities also worked well. When making the reservation the lady in the office called us back promptly when we didn't even give our number, she was excellent and was ready for us when we arrived. We have stayed here before and this has been a consistent great overnight or couple day park.

Date of Stay:

This is an older adequate park, we were here to visit with a couple of RV friends. The utilities all worked OK the 2 nights we were here. The pull through site was gravel as were the roads (some were paved). No trees so the rooftop dish worked well as did the OTA antenna. Verizon voice and hotspot worked well too. We have been here a few times but this time there were thousands of caterpillars also. We were in an open area so didn't get the worst of them. Office staff was helpful when we had to modify our length of stay.

Date of Stay:

We spent 2 nights here at the Passport America rate of $20/night. All utilities worked well, OTA antenna picked up several TV stations. Verizon Voice and hotspot worked well. No trees so the rooftop dish also worked well. The road was blacktop and site was concrete backing up to a large pond. Very quite and dark at night. 10 or so minutes from I10 on several country roads but many signs providing good directions. Office staff friendly.

Date of Stay:

We winter here for 4 to 6 months. Sites are spacious with 50a FHU. Roads, sites & patios are all paved. Price includes power, WiFi (pretty reliable but not perfect), cable TV, indoor & outdoor pools. All utilities worked very well. Daily price was based on 6 month winter rate of $430. AL59 is a quarter mile east and can be noisy, especially sirens. The east side of park is higher and drier if it rains. Many snowbirds have dogs but they pick up after them. Gulf is 4 miles south and the park is within 5 miles of many many restaurants, shopping, and activities. Verizon cell service (voice and data) is good, most sites have clear shot for our rooftop TV dish. Park always fills up after Christmas. In the spring and summer the area is full of spring breakers, vacationers and southerners seeking the beach and Gulf. We get out then as it's too busy for us and the restaurant prices go up.

Roads are gravel with firm grass sites. We had a very long and very wide pull through with FHU. I think it was pricy for a Escapee 30a site, the back-ins were less $$ but we wanted one in the open for our rooftop dish. The utilities worked well as did out Verizon cell phone and internet hotspot. Yes, the pool is closed. Park is quiet but close to I75. No picnic table.

Date of Stay:

Rate is Passport America, 3 day max. Our pull through was grass and the roads are narrow and blacktop. Verizon cellphone and hotspot worked fine as did campground WiFi. Limited trees so the rooftop dish worked. OTA antenna picked up lots of channels. 50a FHU site utilities had no troubles. Outdoor pool was warm & good. Road campground is on is divided and busy, can take awhile to make a left turn exiting.

Rate is Passport America. The water, 30A, and sewer worked fine, few trees so rooftop dish worked, Verizon cell phone and internet hot spot worked fine as did campground WiFi. We did lose power for a couple minutes one morning. The road was blacktop where we were but some were sand, site was tall grass with lots of small bugs due to rain. Grass site was solid even with lots of recent rain. Site was small but fifth wheel and truck fit OK. Neighbor's 2 cars were 5 feet away on utility side. Neighbor's trailer had obviously been there several years, those around us were all long term. Campground was kind of run down. All the other nearby campgrounds were twice the price. Not sure if we will return or pay more at another camp ground next time, we were gone most of the time so didn't spend much time there.

About 5 miles west of I75 and Ashburn, some road noise though from the road the campground is on, otherwise peaceful. Water 50a and sewer all worked fine, Verizon cell phone and internet hotspot worked fine. Rooftop dish worked as there are no trees of any size. Campground is open field with many pull throughs and several long term RV parked here. Our site had plenty of room for both RV and truck. Roads & sites are gravel with some grass in them. Site had picnic table, fire ring and grill.

Rate was with federal senior's America the Beautiful discount. We reserved an open site so the rooftop dish worked fine, Verizon cell phone and internet hotspot worked fine also. When we arrived one leg of the 50a outlet was bad, the host had an electrician respond within 2 hours to replace the pedestal breaker which resolved the problem, in the mean time we used the 30a outlet. Our site had a very good view of Lake Lanier, site was back-in blacktop with large packed, very fine, sand patio with fire ring and picnic table. All roads are blacktop in excellent shape. Dump station access with 37' fifth wheel tight but OK. The water often was a rusty brown color out of the spigot when turned on but cleared up in few seconds, I think. The park is well kept, staff friendly and a scenic location. There was another site parallel but forward of ours and the RV there had their slide extended slightly over our drive, we had to be careful parking the truck but it didn't block our lake view. I would have given higher rating if water was always clear, they had sewer hook ups and the parallel site wasn't so close to our sites drive.

Our pull through was plenty long for the 5W and truck. 50a FHU utilities all worked fine. Rooftop dish had a good signal and the cable for TV worked good in the bedroom. Verizon cell phone and hotspot worked well as did the campground WiFi. The site was gravel with some grass between sites, the road was also gravel and wide. Staff was very friendly. Minor road noise. There were at 2 or 3 dogs running loose but we had no problem with them.

We had a back-in site to the Ohio River and enjoyed sitting outside watching the barges. There is a separate charge for electricity, each site has a meter. The 50a was good and the water pressure was high but our regulator reduced it. We used the dump station when we left but a friend with us paid $5 to be pumped out mid week. Our Verizon hotspot gave good internet access, texting worked but we had no voice communications. The site (3) was in full sun and pretty level, some sites backing up to the river had a significant slope. No large trees so the rooftop dish worked well as did the over the air TV antenna. The CG is 20 miles from Portsmouth and remote. The few trains across the river were not very loud or frequent. There is industry across the river but you can not see it due to the heavy trees and brush but you can barely hear it. This is a very nice and peaceful campground.

Easy walking distance to shops in downtown Berlin. Our section had a very wide paved road and all gravel sites. Soft gravel was a little difficult to walk in but drained rain water very well. Pull through site was wide enough and could park the truck next to RV. We were close to the office so had good WiFi. Our Verizon hotspot also worked well. There were no trees so rooftop dish worked well also. 50a power, water & sewer all OK. The laundry had 2 washers and dryers and was clean.

This is a family campground with many kid activities. My review and comments of Leisure Lake in August 2010 still applies. Our new Verizon hotspot worked well. Due to low AC power (99 to 105 volts) during the hot day we left the next day rather than spend the rest of the week with poor power.

We held a small (15 RVs) rally here. This is a Church of God campground that has recently opened for the public. It is also Passport America. It's 2 miles outside Saint Louis in the country. Half the park is in a shaded area with mature trees with water and 30a. The other half is in the open with water and 50a or 30a. They rent ($25/day) an air conditioned building where we conducted our rally activities. There are two large bathhouses/bathrooms. There is a large covered pavilion with an adjacent fire ring. The roads are gravel and the sites are grass. You can easily pull through open sites making then pull a through. The sites are level. There is some road noise from Bagley and M46. The Verizon cell phones and hotspots worked well as did the 50a and water. There was another RV rally here, they were in the 30a shaded area and we were in the 50a open area. LOTS of room in this park. The staff was VERY friendly and helpful. We are very pleased we found this gem of a campground.

This old KOA is under new ownership and has made many improvements. The office has been remodeled inside and out. All the other building exteriors are either new or have been resided and reroofed. The grounds are very well landscaped and maintained. There has been a lot of work put into this campground. We had a long pull through site with 30a FHU. the utilities worked OK. We used the power pedestal on the curb side of the RV as it was much closer that the one for the pull through we were in. There are lots of Maple trees so our rooftop dish would not get a signal. The rooftop antenna picked up several local TV channels. We were close to the office and used their WiFi which was very reliable, I did not try our Verizon hotspot. There are 3 washers and 4 dryers, each $2. Laundry room was very clean. The campground was not busy, 3 or 4 trailers with no one there the 2 nights we spent there. Only 4 RV's had activity. Roads and sites are gravel. The price included $2 charge for using a credit card, no checks accepted. You can hear road traffic from I-70 otherwise peaceful campground. Owner was very friendly and helpful.
