Easy overnight on the way to Key West. We got to pick our own site as office was closed when we arrived. Transient sites are in the front of the park; lots of full time/seasonal/year round in the lower 2/3 of the park. Good water, electric. Room enough for big rig to get around. Directly under the flight path of JAX but not a problem. OK for an overnight or two; very convenient to Jacksonville and surrounding areas. Staff helpful and friendly; would have no problems staying here again.

Date of Stay:

VERY nice resort - beautifully landscaped (some areas) with tons of amenities. Still building up some areas of resort so trees were new, etc. Pools, tennis, lovely clubhouse etc. Front desk very friendly. Sites were large, no problems at all for big rig. In fact, that's all there are in this resort...BIG rigs! Mostly French-Canadian, but no problems. If you are nice, so are they-a smile and a hello go a long way. Would definitely stay here again! Loved it. Central to all the Ft. Lauderdale area offers, easy access to I-95 (5 mi) and FL Turnpike (2 mi).

Date of Stay:

Paved entry road, then rutted gravel/dirt roads inside park, gravel and grass sites. Ours was in the 140 row with plenty of length for our 43' MH. During our stay we were the only large class A in the park - a couple smaller ones, but mostly 5th wheels and TT. Room to park car either in front or behind MH, but had to unhook to make turn to get into site - very narrow - hookups too close to the road. Nice play areas for kids, didn't use restroom facilities. Trash never emptied while we were there (3 nights) and dumpsters overflowing come Monday morning. Never given any info on rules/regs - verbally told they had quiet hours (11pm) but that was not enforced. Nice proximity to Keuka Lake/Hammondsport via back roads (trust in Tom-Tom). Campground backs up to a residential area and there was construction going on - not sure if it was campground's or others. Rate was Good Sam for non-holiday weekend.

Stopped just about dark for an overnight stay enroute to Ohio. Was open field camping, full hook ups. Narrow sites but easy access in and out for a 43' motorhome. This place was packed on a Friday night, mostly overnights parked here, seasonals on the upper/wooded sites. Would NOT attempt anything other than the field/lower sites for larger rigs. Stop before getting to the check in building so you have room to make the turn to go down the hill to the lower sites (otherwise you may have to back up). Everything worked great: 50 amp, water pressure, Wi-Fi. Did not use any other facilities so can't comment. Would go back as an overnight or couple day stay if I was in the area or visiting.

Nice location, decent sized site for big rig RV. Easy access to/in park, gravel roads and site, sketchy Wi-Fi, didn't use bath house. Asked for a pull-through and was put in the back of the park (over the bridge) - site not level and really sloped down in the front, but we made do. Also, that area of the park has very new, minimal landscape - mostly just open field with some fairly small trees. the main area of the park is much prettier, with a couple small ponds and nice mature landscaping. Tried to move but was told they were full, however, I saw many open sites throughout the weekend. We camped here over a holiday - 4th of July - and there was a three day minimum. Would go back to again if I was in that area, but only if I could stay in the main campground area.

Loved this site for location if nothing else. Park was packed when we went. Requested a pull through 50 amp FHU site however, only a back in 50 amp FHU available (#319). Not a problem maneuvering 43' motorhome to get into the site. Was near a bath house and easy access to the park, shuttle or other resort areas, no Wi-Fi though. Problem came with 50 amp service. We kept blowing the breaker at the breaker box, even when we set our RV to only use 30 amps. Contacted maintenance by phone 4 times over the first two days and asked them replace breaker; in the meantime we would just reset it ourselves at the box. On the 3rd day we had gone back into the park around 6pm, returned home about 11 to no electric and could not manually reset the breaker. It had totally died. Had to run the generator while we tried to locate a real person to talk to, they tracked down the electricians and someone finally replaced the breaker about midnight. Not quite what I expected for $72/night, however, would go back again just for convenience sake.

Used as overnight stop only - fairly long drive from I-80. To get into park you have to navigate around low overhanging and decorative boulders on the road edges and corners. Pull through sites only available for overnight stays, $30 for 30 amp, extra $5 for 50 amp. Note: pull through sites are better set up for truck towing 5th wheel or trailer, rather than motorhome towing a vehicle due to the placement of the hookups. Fire pits are positioned mid way on the site, not front or rear, so no air flow between sites. No security on site after hours, or anyone to contact. I would not go back.

Nice park, but pretty far from Alex Bay/Clayton area. No problems with bugs while we were there, even with all the rain/wet weather. Did have a problem with spiders...yikes! Not sure if it was because of the rain or the location under the trees, but they were everywhere! Small, almost translucent ones that made webs everywhere. I felt like I was camping in the woods. We asked for a waterfront site for our 43' bus and were put on G4. If you have a big rig, pretty much any site in that area OTHER than G4 would be larger, more open and not blocked by trees. Because of the angle of the sites and the curve of the land, the view of the water was through the trees and branches to a cove and then the lake beyond. The other sites were more strategically placed (and with taller trees) so that you had open water views and nice grassy areas to set up chairs, etc. In my opinion, I really did not see anything special about the park itself, other than its location on the water which was very nice. Others loved it. It took over 20 minutes to get to the park from I-81; roads to get there were not bad although there were some really slow areas with tight turns. No problems for a big motorhome as long as you don't meet others coming the opposite way.

WOW! Not sure that there is much I can say that has not already been said about this place. It was great. Booked through the park itself, no problems even when I had to change my plans. Not much wind when we were here. Not the park's problem though, and it was hot. Even the pool was hot: ugh. We had the place virtually to ourselves until the weekend, then it filled up. Had oceanfront sites: both great views and nicely landscaped. Would go back!

Stayed here one weekend to attend an event at the State Park. Easy access to mass transit to NJ and into NYC. Called at least 6 times beforehand to try and get a site and was told none available until end of July. Called two days out (got someone different) and got a site, no problem. Go figure. When we got in there were plenty of sites open, and they never filled up all weekend. In fact, we were able to get a site with no one next to us so it gave us a little more elbow room. Travel to/from the park in a 43' motorhome is 'interesting' to say the least...narrow streets, low wires, overhanging trees and a tight right turn - I wouldn't suggest this during busy times like rush hour. Mid-day wasn't too bad. Only other real problem we experienced was periodic power outages - it was a hot weekend and I am sure everyone's A/C was running at max. The whole park didn't lose power, only one set of breakers. After a couple times losing electricity and having to reset the breakers (it got to the point where the maintenance guy just showed us where it was and we did it ourselves) we moved our adapter to a different outlet at an empty site and didn't have a problem again. Park works for its proximity and access to NYC...I would only go again for that.

Typical KOA with tons of activities for kids and lots of them around. Park smelled like a barnyard most times due to the 'petting zoo' that was near the office. Sites heavily treed; we had site number 180 (most sites in that row can accommodate larger RVs). Used this park as a base for San Francisco and Napa. Would not have stayed here except there is not much in the area for larger MHs (we have 43' with a tow). Was comforted to find other similar MHs here when we were, also. Can't comment on facilities as we do not use them. Park was quiet at night, but had to keep MH closed up due to the campfires everywhere.

A nice park just off 101, could be a good spot for viewing the redwoods and southern Oregon. We spent one night: we have a 43' MH and had to unhook. Asked for an end site and was given a 'prime site' for the regular pull-through rate; the only difference was that the prime sites were on the ends of the rows and had additional outdoor furniture (picnic table plus loungers and round plastic dining table with chairs). Nice touch, but unfortunately it came across looking cluttered as the sites were narrow. Once we moved all the excess out of the way, it was ok. Water pressure seemed to be a little weak, cable TV was fuzzy. Only spent one night then moved on.

Was skeptical about this place but it turned out to be a great location to tour the redwoods when we could not get into Winchester Bay or Brookings Harbor. Pull through sites can accommodate without unhooking; we chose a back-in waterfront site which worked out well, but had to park the car next to us. The road to the park is about 1 1/2 miles up a winding roadway, and the entrance to the park is down a steep, narrow road which levels off at the bottom. We have a 43' MH with an SUV tow and did not have any problems. One side of the park seemed to be long term/trailer parking, the other transients. Not much to do, but the view was nice and the park quiet. Restrooms were super clean; they charge for showers (.25/8 minutes) in the bath house. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Unfortunately, no fishing allowed when we were here: we were disappointed. Maybe next time.

A nice place for an overnight stop: we spent two while touring the coast and beaches. Spent time in the casino, got comped for our overnight stays and breakfast to boot. Quiet: located by train tracks, but no trains. Pull throughs can accommodate larger RVs if you unhook. Restrooms/showers were clean and tidy; and there's a shuttle to the casino running all the time .

This park was in the big-rigs book and I am not sure why. We had a last minute reservation: the park said big RVs not a problem. Took 20 minutes to get there from 101, through a downtown area then a series of winding, narrow roads. Arrived to a dirty dustbowl on the ocean where we were (in our 43' MH) by far, the biggest thing in the park. Mostly travel trailers, tents and smaller Class Cs. Pulled through our site, which was no where near long enough to accommodate both MH and tow, went around the loop, and back to the office. Not our thing, I guess.
