I like a small park, this fits the bill, spaces are normal size which is not too terribly wide but fine for me. Friendly staff and campers, some landscaping, excellent wifi, local cable channels, clean laundry and restrooms, not terribly noisy since road noise is buffeted by the motorcycle shop out front. Icing on the cake is the Camping World directly across the street, a good repair shop a block away, a nice walking/bike path along the canal out the back gate and very good mass transit. Long term visitors book by July, I was just 2 nights and was able to call the day before and get a site. I'd make this my go-to park when I'm in Mesa.

This is the nicest private campground I've ever been to. Grounds beautifully maintained, plenty of walking area. I camped in elect/water only and had the whole area to myself with big trees and grass. Its also toward the front so further from the interstate behind the park, a number of campers were back there in the full hookups so busier there. This is a great park to stay at if you're picking up a motorhome in Elkhart and want to test camp before leaving town. Super nice family who owns the park.

If you need or don't mind trying to sleep a few yards from interstate traffic this is a nice well maintained park. Over-the-air tv was scrambled, maybe by the interstate. The hookups are odd, spaced far apart from each other and sometimes the water spigot was quite far, I stretched 20' of hose. Try to ask to pick out a site, there are good pull throughs and the back ins are right next to the little lake, but the other side has trees and is further from the interstate. There's a playground/"beach" for kids and paddleboards, they seem to get a lot of weekend people coming to use these facilities.

Call the campground to get directions before arriving, there are some roads with low clearance bridges where your GPS may tell you to go, but the wonderful host will steer you right. From the town of Quincy (and its one way steets) its down the hill and along the Mississippi River which you can view from a county park on the other side of the road from the campground. Lovely campground built on the hillside, trees, pool and playground equipment for the kids, outside picnic tables. Good over the air reception on about 4-6 channels. Wifi from office area only but is good from there. Verizon gets a roaming signal. Host is very accommodating to your needs. Enjoyed the stay.

If you stay at an Asheville area KOA choose this one over the west side one, FAR better here. Large and park-like around 2 lakes and the creek, better in the back area than front. Good, free Wi-Fi with no codes, many TV channels. This is a popular spot, I've met a number of frequent visitors who reserve far ahead of time in the fall to get the nice water sites. Yes, there is highway and train noise, but they all seem to have that, otherwise this is the nicest KOA I've stayed at by far. I'm in #12 at the lake and my class B cargo doors open to the water.

This park was convenient as I approached Asheville from this side of I-40 and is easy to get to, like most KOAs, right off the highway. I got a chance to check out the sites before going to the office, the nicer sites with cable were full and had been for months (fall color season) so I chose site #20 on the water/electric side, wanting to be a bit away from most of the other campers. Sites in this section are not level even with 2 leveling blocks up in front, Wi-Fi works well. Bathroom is clean, but has a bit of an odor. It's a wooded area and pleasant enough. It'll be okay for tonight, but will try the another KOA for the next several nights as I explore Asheville.

So happy to have found this lovely little campground. As far as I'm concerned the further I could get from tourist-centric Gatlinburg the better. My level, gravel back in site # 29 is wooded in back, preferable to me with my Class B cargo doors that open onto that view. Limited traffic noise and few TV channels, but excellent Wi-Fi. Spotless bathroom and quiet, serene atmosphere.

Don't use your GPS to get here, call the campground to get more specific directions. It's further off the main drag than most KOAs and enormous, its own city. I have a 20' class B and asked for a site out of the way. Site is fine, but cable hookup is very poor, unwatchable and, like the last 3 KOAs I've stayed at on this trip, Wi-Fi is sketchy and keeps cutting out. Despite the size the setting is beautiful and the campground looks to be about 2/3rds full even with Smokey Mountain National Park closed.

This is a lovely park right off I-20, exit 77. Tall pines and rolling hills of the Bienville Natl. Forest. To clarify, there are a few pull through sites but most are back in with views of the lake, and while the bathroom was clean it was quite old and in need of a paint job. There are also 15 cabins and a 20 unit lodge. Very much appreciated the stay here.

Date of Stay:

Agreed that it is VERY tight for the larger rigs here. I'm in a 20' class B, so can pull into that quieter and somewhat more open area. All grass but I like that, very well maintained and completely level site (74). The Wi-Fi works fine. A little bit noisy from road noise and the nearby small airport, but not bad. Very acceptable fenced off-leash dog area with some grass and trees. Sites do have trees but shade doesn't happen till early evening. Nicely maintained park with friendly hosts.

Date of Stay:

I'm here now based on the other review. It's a small, clean park but no shade, not much space to walk dogs, only three or four cable channels, owner seemed nice but left before giving me keys to get into the washroom. I asked for the phone # but he didn't give it to me. Its fine, I'm just not giving it the enthusiasm of the other review, and the price seems high for what's (not)here.

Easy access, security, store, sites vary but I had one with a concrete pad that made the difference in the rainstorm. Well kept up though the roads are narrow and a little rough, but not really a problem. Nice people, clean, nice bathroom.

I loved this place. I was there on a Thursday night when only about 1/2 the campground was full but they really fill on the w/e. I did not experience the smoke problem described in other posts but could see it happening with a full campground. The place is absolutely lovely - be sure to take the $4- Tram tour around the park, and there are numerous 30' walks through various ecological areas. This was one of Florida's first State Parks, built by the Civilian Conservation Corp. They and nature did an outstanding job!

This is a nice and convenient park. I have 2 dogs and was not charged extra for them. No cable hookup, always a surprise at a park near a sizable town. Dog area near entrance but plenty of dog walking area all around the park.

This park has a nice "Cheeseburgers in Paradise" feel. Its in two parts, the beach side is more pricey and to me seems worthwhile only if you're in the first row in front of the beach. The opposite side of the street is the park office and a little nicer looking park, but the spots are so tight I don't know how the larger units get in (I have a class B). If you stay in this section, ask if the guy is doing woodcarvings with his chainsaw. Apparently he's a regular fixture and while the carvings are nice the awful noise was a big negative for me. Otherwise a great place, and thanks to the reviewer who mentioned you can walk your dogs on this beach! A big big plus!
