Cost is with the Florida Senior discount. Beautiful park. Clean restrooms. We were in site 36 which is in the back and very private. Across from the bathhouse. Great location for birding and fishing. Beach is about 1/2 mile from the campground. Large park with the bridge across the inlet dividing it. Good swimming area at the lagoon for children. The bugs were bad but that is to be expected in this type of environment. Need bug spray to sit outside in the evening. This is the "real" Florida.

We came to this park when evacuated from tidewater VA during hurricane Irene. So happy we came. This is by far the best COE park we have ever visited. We were in B136 which was a huge site. At least 100 feet long and very wide. Lots of open area on both sides and a path down to the lake with a small private beach. The roads are paved and wide. There is a paved bike path that goes about 4 miles and with all the other roads you can get in about 7 miles. The bathrooms are new and spotless. The morning after the hurricane the bike path was cleaned off of debris by 10:00 AM. This is a huge park with three swimming beaches. We will definitely be back.

This is a nice park. Beautiful pool. The lake is very dirty and a negative for the park. Our site was large and we had good satellite. Verizon cell and internet worked fine. Close to all Hershey attractions. He will definitely stay here again.

This park is all about location. The sites are mostly dirt. We were in site 315 which was an easy in and out for our 38 feet. The site was large but we did have lots of traffic back and forth through our site since we were right in front of the bathroom. During the week the park was much quieter than on the weekend when it had no vacancy. It rained while we were there but about an hour afterward the ground seemed totally dry so no problems with mud. The TART 21 mile bike trail is paved and leaves right out of the back of the park. There is a pedestrian bridge across 31 to the beach. The restrooms were very crowded but stayed as clean as they could be with all the traffic and the dirt sites. No water or sewer hookups in the campground which is typical of Michigan state parks. Water fills all around the campground. We would definitely stay here again just for the great location.

We were in the Pines section of this state park. The Lakeshore section is like an entirely different park. The road in the Pines was excellent and all the sites had paved pads and electric hookups. The water fills were very conveniently placed. The road in the Lakeshore section are basically gone and the sites are grass or dirt. The sites in the Pines are quite large where those in the Lakeshore section are much smaller. I would say that if you have a big rig you would want to be in the Pines section even though it is not on the water. The restrooms in the Pines section were very clean and tiled. I did not go into the Lakeshore bathrooms. The road into this park is in need of some work and quite rough. We would definitely come back but only to the Pines area.

This is a beautiful campground on Lake Superior. They have double wooden resort chairs on the lake which are wonderful for sunning or watching the sunset. We stayed in site 14 which was a very easy in/out. The site was level enough. The camp hosts have lots of information on the area just outside their RV which is very helpful. The only problem one might find in this park is the location of the electrical boxes. In some cases you might need up to 75 feet of electrical cable. The only reason for the 9 rating is the position of the electrical boxes and of course no water or sewer hookups.

We were in site 16 in this park. Had nice shade trees but since it was quite rainy, we stepped out into a large pool of water. There is a steep hill going down into the park but we had no problem with it. There is a nice grassy area where children can play. The park is in an excellent location to visit the Apostle Islands Golf Course and downtown Bayfield and to take the ferry to Madeline Island. We had no Wi-Fi at our site even though the owner advertises it. My biggest complaint was the restrooms. The toilets were in an outdoor covered area. The showers were pay showers and took $1.50 for 5 minutes. At $32.00 per night, I would expect to get a free shower. We might stay in this park again.

To review this campground, I will just say what we considered the positives and negatives. The positives: A great location for visiting the area, nice level, pull through, full hookup site with a shade tree. The negatives: Bathroom had two flush toilets for over 250 sites. Others were either portable or pit toilets. There were two showers for women and two for men. We had full hookup so did not use either of these but I did check them out and they were moderately clean. Most of the sites were 15 amp, we had one of the few 30 amp sites. We would not stay in this campground again.

This is a beautiful park with wonderful water access. The roads into the campground area are not very wide, but the roads in the campground area are really narrow. We could not get into the site we had reserved due to the narrow road with no ability to turn the truck. We were give site 37 which had a place across the street for turning. No problem getting in then. However, the exit area is very narrow and takes some good maneuvering to get through. There is only one shower house in the entire campground. I can imagine that on a busy weekend, there would be quite a wait. Due to our 38 feet, we would probably not try to get into this campground again but would definitely visit for all the wonderful kayaking and hiking.

This is a huge state park. We stayed in site 349 in the Twin Valley loop. The site was level, easy in and out, was quite large and private. We were able to kayak in one of the lakes and hiked the Lost Canyon Trail. The rest rooms were clean and conveniently located. The only reason for a 9 for this park was no 30 amp, no water and no sewer. This is about normal for Wisconsin parks however. There is a day pass fee on top of the campground fee so we bought an annual pass for $35.00 since we will visit quite a few state parks in Wisconsin. We would like to come back and spend more time.

This park is right on the Capital City Bike Trail. Some in and out traffic from bikers stopping to use the bathroom or get water. The sites are large and level. The showers are large and each is in a private area. This is an excellent location for biking into Madison. Also quite close to major roads into the city. There is no water or sewer at the sites but we did have 50 amp which was great in the 100 degree record breaking heat. Water fill stations are spread around the campground. We would consider a longer stay next time to further explore the area.

This is a gem in the Thousand Trails/Outdoor World system. The grounds are manicured, the sites are level and of decent size, the pool is heated and pristine, the bathrooms are super clean. The Wal-Mart Super center is 3 miles away but the campground is out in a country setting. Appeared to have many sites booked on a long term basis as there were lots of RVs but no people. There is a restaurant in the clubhouse but was not open during the week when we were here. The laundry is small but inexpensive. Rockford, IL is about 20 miles away and an easy drive. There is a wonderful bike trail along the river running for about 10 miles. Rock Cut State Park with hiking and biking is not far either. Only reason for the 8 rating was no 50 amp service and the roads are unpaved. When in this area again, we will definitely stay here.

We stayed here over Memorial Day weekend and were surprised that the park was rather quiet even though fully booked.. We were in site 36 in the B section which we got our 38 footer into but not without some work. I would recommend the D section and the sites in the 100s for big rigs. Those are level, large and easy in and out. The restrooms were clean but old and in need to updating. The grounds needed mowing. The rate is the Golden Age rate. The marina area is quite nice and was busy of course over the holiday. We would stay again if in this area, but only in the D section.

Upon arriving we found that we could not get into the site we had reserved. While the website indicated a 115 foot drive, 60 feet was straight downhill. We were then given a first come, first served site in the T section with full hookups. The site was gravel and level. Much more suited to our 38 foot fifth wheel. I would say that all the sites in the A section are for small units, and would highly recommend a call to the campground instead of using the website when reserving. The staff seemed to know all the sites and can make a more realistic assignment. The area is an outdoor mecca. Wonderful kayaking, biking and hiking. The showers in the T section were outdoor showers but the bathhouse in the D section did have private showers. We did not use either, except to take cover during a tornado alert. We would definitely come again but only in the T or D section.

This is a wonderful state park. The campground is 5 miles from the entrance but the drive is beautiful. We were in site A14, a large, level pull through. The restrooms are dated but very clean. The water pressure was good but the water was not very hot. The sites are relatively close together but since we were not at the site much did not matter to us. There are great hiking trails, a beautiful golf course, good kayaking lakes, a treetop nature walk, and good biking. This is a hilly park so be prepared for a workout. We are hoping to stay here longer next time.
