The nightly rate we've listed is because we stayed 2 weeks, at the unbelievably cheap cost of $110 per week. Great spot, super nice staff, mostly pull through sites, right off I-65, and about 20 minutes south of downtown Louisville. Perfect for sightseeing the many local distilleries, Louisville, everything. Could not have been happier.

Excellent campground, about 10 miles from downtown Bloomington. Large sites, some pull through, mostly fairly level. Satellite reception was easy, especially with portable dish. Water spigots are scattered around the campground. Pick a site close to any spigot: use a double hookup, so that another camper can also use the water spigot and you'll be able to stay hooked-up for your entire stay rather than use your tank.

Excellent state park campground. All large pull thru sites, spread far apart. Lots of shade. Satellite signal availability iffy, had to use portable dish and 100' of cable to stretch out to open field. Beautiful boat landing. Drawbacks: Georgia State Parks accept reservations, but not for any specific site. Also no-see-ums are out early in morn and late in afternoon, and this was February, about 73 degrees. Still, nice access to Savannah, and for $18 nightly, a good deal.

This is an excellent state park campground, huge sites, easily big enough for any size rig, set far apart, lots of privacy, modern, well kept, clean restrooms and showers. Easy access for satellite signal at almost every site. Hosts were excellent, had potluck lunches, community game days, coffee clutches. A nice pavilion is available for group picnics. Easy access to the lake for boats with a large parking lot for tow vehicles and trailers. Also has a beach for swimming, but not very nice, and anyhow, wonder about aligators??? Close to Lakewood Ranch which has every kind of store, cinemas, and a few restaurants. Already made reservation for next winter.

This campground is 3/4 manufactured home, 1/4 campground. Most of the home sites are occupied by full-time residents. The campground is clean and fairly well spaced, and has a security gate. One or two sites are set between manufactured homes. Don't take site 916. It's located by a small playground which is used by the neighborhood kids and on weekends is loud until 11pm. There's a nice pool, fitness center, laundry, and community center. You can get a strong wi-fi signal when at the community center, not at the campground sites. Satellite reception is excellent. The town of Homestead is pretty much run down, yet after awhile you'll find the good areas to shop, and to use restaurants. Homestead is a good jumping off place to the Keys, just 23 miles to Key Largo,and Miami, about 30 miles.

Nice people run this campground. Even ask that you don't park or drive on the grass, which to some might sound picky, but really, it tells you they care. Loose stone sites, but very level, and mostly pull through, too. Their Wi-Fi is excellent, but not from most sites. Best to take a seat on the picnic table next to the office, and you'll get excellent reception. Satellite reception was easy, especially with a portable dish. Within a few miles of Bloomington, and less than 30 miles from Peoria. It's a Passport America campground, so weekdays your rate can be as low as $13.

Nice, quiet campground. Clean. River-side sites available, but as I understand it, not reservable. All other sites ARE reservable. Has two loops, one near the river, the other a short walk away. We took the loop farther away, and were more than happy, mostly because it was much less crowded, especially on week days. No problem with satellite reception at our site, 33, and our neighbors, 32 and 34. No water at sites, but spicket is a 30' hose away (at our site)so you can fill your tank on site rather than go to fill/dump station. Check campground map for sites near spickets. Illinois and Iowa welcome centers 5 minutes away, and Iowa center has free wi-fi. Also, nice golf course, Golfmohr, within 2 miles. $16 18 hole senior rate on weekdays. Would stay here again.

This campground is entirely paved and therefore almost perfectly level throughout. The regular sites are a bit tight, but manageable, even with a car alongside your rig, and they have the same full hookups and free cable TV as the premium sites. The office and store is convenient, and the staff was kind and helpful. Downtown St. Louis is directly across the bridge, and the campground staff will take you to the metro station FREE to get over there. $23 is the Good Sam rate when staying a week, otherwise it's 26 for the regular sites, more for premium locations. Security is tight, and you'll feel completely safe. An excellent value, especially when considering you're less than a mile from downtown St. Louis. Only drawback is a lot of noisy trains going past at all hours. Never bothered us, though. We'd stay again in a heartbeat.

Excellent campground, set on pretty lake. Large sites, some pull through. Good satellite reception during winter, don't know about summer. Just a few miles from Callaway Gardens and Little White House. Only drawback; can make reservations, but not for any particular site. Must take what's left upon arrival. Would stay here again in winter when I know I can get most any site.
Date of Stay: February, 2008
Excellent campground. Not a lot of shade, but plenty of open sky for satellite use. Huge sites, plenty of separation. Park rangers can't do enough for you. Would definitely stay here again.

Class A State Park with a Class C campground. Cramped in many sites, while roomy in others. Can be smelly close to dump station. Heavy foliage makes for lots of shade, but poor chance for satellite use unless you have a portable antenna, then still iffy. Sites 19 thru 23 good for big rigs, and portable satellite antennas. Lots to see and do within park, plus a full service restaurant will be available right on the lake, summer, 2008. Already made reservations for winter 2009.
