Very nice park. The Class A spots are really nice with good space. The back-in sites are good but could have more space and privacy. The place is crawling with camping workers and they keep the place up very nicely. The two pools are great and the workout room is top notch. We'd stay here again.

This place is a dump and the worst park we have ever stayed at. There are a number of people staying there out of necessity and the park is poorly maintained. Further, I think someone stole 15 to 20 gallons of diesel from our rig while we were there as I smelled diesel on night when we returned after having been gone all day and when I checked the mileage on the next fill, the mileage was well less than what the dashboard stated, something that has never happened before. I'd stay away and drive an extra 15 miles if needed. Proximity is not worth it for this park.

Great location but not a Big Rig friendly site. The main area (sites 1 - 27) is tight to turn and back-in with trucks and cars parked almost in the road so there is little room to swing the front end. Fortunately the owners of these vehicles were around and volunteered to move the vehicles so we could get in but if they had been away or asleep it would have been an issue. The sites are unlevel (mostly due to the terrain) so you may have a pinched mud flap or a front tire off the ground a little to get your rig level. The campground is on a hill so the overall terrain makes it tight, sloped and not ideal for a campground but workable. The owner said our spot was great but I think that is mostly pride of ownership. Our site should have been more level so the jacks and leveling did not pinch the mud flap. The 30 AMP was too weak midday when many others were running AC. Extra charge to use the 50 AMP. The upper area (sites 28 - 41) are not big rig friendly. There is a steep and curved road to get through this area and you have to gun it to get up with a 40 foot rig. The owner should not put big rigs in this area. The pads are about 25 feet long. The campground was full but there was only a few 40 foot or bigger rigs. If you must camp here the rest of our experience was fine but proceed carefully and have someone watch your rig from behind so you don’t miss something. Drive slow and only enter and exit with your rig in full daylight.

Our complaint with this campground is there is a dangerous route to this campground for a big rig. Our GPS took us on the most direct route off the main road which required about a 110 degree turn on Ten Rod Road off 102 (to the east of 102) causing our rig to get hung-up on the rear bumper. True their web site offered a different route but no warning of this intersection. If one Googles this intersection and uses street view, you'll see pavement carved-up by dozens of RVs and trucks. I mentioned this to the front desk to suggest some website warning, intersection signage, curb or other indicator and received little feedback and sympathy. It was very disappointing.

A very nice park. The nicest inner-city park we have stayed in. The staff is very helpful and the park very clean. We did stay in the front of the park which is quiet enough. It should be contrasted with other inner-city RV parks - this one is a 10 that is 5 minutes from the French Quarter.

Great location to D.C. with few alternatives to pick from, none acceptable to us after spending a few hours on the Internet before our trip. Expensive park. Definitely stay in front part of the park as the back and upper part is a 3 because of the temporary workers that stay there. Stay off the roads to and from the back part to avoid traffic if this is important to you. Otherwise a good park.

An excellent park, especially for the rate. We had a pull-through site (#173) which had hibiscus plants that provided a nice screen from the neighboring sites. In 30 seconds you could walk to the western edge of the camping area for a sunset view across the backwaters area. Note it is not on the ocean (do a Google satellite view) but various beaches are just a bike ride (10 minutes) or car trip (2 minutes) away. A real treat was seeing the sunrise from the beach closest to the Sunshine Skyway. The beaches in the park were clean with great shelling. Make sure you have some outside help pulling a big rig into the pull-throughs as some of the trees grow in at an angle and might brush your rig. Definitely a place we will go back to - hard to reserve in advance as locals have a one month head start.

We were somewhat disappointed based on the reviews on the RV Park Reviews for this site and the CG's website. We would not call this a 5 star as Woodall's did in their 2007 review. The spaces are a little close so not much privacy. Backing in a 40' rig was tight. The location is cutoff by water from nearby establishments so it may take 25 minutes to get to a location just a few miles south of the CG. Otherwise an OK park.
