This campground is new - grass has been planted and covered with hay. Sites are not level - the first site we were told to take left our back wheels 10" off the ground to get level. We were told to take any other site - all but one were open. We took # 11 and did not have to block to get level, but it rained that night and we were flooded. The (what they call the bathhouse) is across the street at the off/ice cream stand about 150 yards away. There are no trash cans anywhere in the campground. We would not stay here again - Walmart offers more.

Sorry to say this state park has gone downhill since we were last. I guess budget cuts have affected service. We arrived early at 11:30 and were told someone was on our site and they had it until 1:00, so we pulled into the parking area and waited until 1:00. Again we asked if we could check-in and were told "I don't know if the site is empty, but you can go over and check it." No one was there, so we had to ask if we could check-in again. Instead of getting a map and information about what the park has to offer all we got was a piece of paper with the gate code on it and our site # and dates we were going to be staying. We were not made to feel very welcomed - the woman and guard at the gate were very unaccommodating. Checking out our site it was well raked and the fire ring and BBQ had been cleaned. The stone around the site has been overgrown with grass and weeds, and under the BBQ was 12" dried grass just asking to be a fire. The washer and dryer are outside the bathhouse and not maintained at all - they are rusted and when we used the washer ($2.50 per load) the clothes all came out with what looked like lint all over them - they had to be re-washed and hand brushed to get the material off them. We will not return here there are other parks that make you feel wanted and offer more for the same price - $26.00/night no discount for a week stay.

Being a boat lover this is a perfect place for me. This has been the ONLY lock I have been able to see actually work; what an experience... worth the price of admission just to be able to see the boats go through the lock. There is a well equipped playground, a boat ramp and even loaner life jackets. The bathhouse was spotless, and the shower was huge with plenty of hot water. The grounds are well kept, there is firewood and a big gopher tortoise . It is so peaceful next to the river, beautiful view of the river and trees, watching the boats go by and the fish jump. The only down sides were the fire ants, and no sewer hook-up. We will look forward to staying here again whenever we can.

Sites are concrete with patio and table with lush grass and hedges between sites, and long enough for big rigs and tows. Utilities were very good and stable except of the cable that kept freezing or dropping out for 5 seconds at a time - a little annoying. A fenced dog run is a great asset. Bathrooms & showers spotless. There is a little noise from I-95, but nothing you can't live with. Close to a Winn-Dixie and Larry's with a small shopping mall. Easy in and out from I-95. First class RV Park, some sites back up to a river. Paved roads throughout easy to manage with big rigs. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a well kept park; each site is well maintained with cut grass and mulched trees. Cement patio with picnic table, no fire rings, site is pull-thru on gravel. The bathrooms and showers were spotless (I hated to use them, they were so clean). The park next to a flea market that is open only Saturday and Sunday - an easy 200 yard walk from the park.

Located anywhere from minutes to 40 minutes (depending on traffic) to all that the area has to offer. Sites are well spaced with trees and grass with stone drive and concrete pad with table and fire ring. I noticed that if you don't use the water for a while you will have some rust, so I use filters and have no problem. We had some power fluctuations on the 30 amp service, so switched to 50 amps and had no more problems. WIFI was in and out, so I used the MIFI. This park has it all - a river, adult pool, kids pool, hot tub, lazy river float (only during the summer) dog wash, RV wash, very clean bathhouses with big showers and nice laundries. The only drawback is that you have some noise from the large quarry next door - run the AC and you won't notice the noise.

Campsites are large with concrete pads, fire ring, table and lantern hook on gravel. Grass is well groomed and all facilities worked well. Half the bathhouses have showers and they are old and the only thing that needs to be updated in the park. Aspen and Hickory loops have sewer. Great marina and boat ramp and lots of boat and fishing activity on Hammond Lake. Good shopping and restaurants in Wellsboro as well as the PA grand canyon only 11 miles west of the park. There is a train excursion that runs on the weekends and last 1 1/2 hours. There is a day use area for swimming and a playground.

It is out from town a few miles and the turn off US19 is really a tight right from town. The road back to the campground is narrow and right next to the river - a little scary on the passenger's side if you have to pass a car going out. The owners are very nice and helpful, and making improvements all the time. Its nice next to the river and they said the fishing is pretty good early in the year. We got 1 OTA TV station the quality was so bad we didn't watch it. No cable or WIFI, but AT&T phone and MYFI was good. All utilities worked well. There is plenty to do and see and places to eat in town. They provide you maps of anything and everything you could want to do in the area.

Showers are family type, good size and clean. You need 20' of sewer hose to connect - water and electric are about 15' away from other utilities. Some sites fill with water after a rain. Watch for close trees if you want to put your awning out. All sites face west. Management is friendly and helpful. All utilities worked well.

All sites are 70' concrete with slopes on either end, so park in the middle if you want to be level or you'll need blocks. Mostly permanent campers, but friendly. The pool was clean and nice, but that's it for activities except for a catch and release pond. The flea market is owned by the park and opens only on the weekends. Our sewer hookup was so far below level with concrete around the pipe I had to weight the hose pipe down to keep it in the inlet pipe - it could not be threaded into it. They pick up trash in front of your site after 10:00 am. The WIFI was so bad I didn't use it. The dog clean up stations never had any bags, and it smelled as if they have never been emptied. No fires allowed. The park is right at the end of the runway of the Jacksonville Airport with heavy traffic both commercial and military. It is easy access to I-95 and a few miles from a shopping center. Very expensive for what you get.

Easy in and out makes everything very easy to get to - right off exit 7 of I-10. The owners are very nice and very helpful - they make you feel like you are really glad you stayed at this park. This is the first time we have stayed here, but it will not be the last. There are two fenced dog runs that make it a real plus for us. The park grounds are spotless and the grass around your site is well groomed with nice patio and large picnic table at each site - lots of pull-thru sites. Owner welcomed us with cookies and a little bag of dog treats. All homemade what a nice touch. it really made us feel welcome. Very clean laundry and restroom and showers - just like home.

Great place to stay near the French Quarter, stores, and gas. People are wonderful - camping is in their back yard. HOT hot tub, nice pool. The union hall next door is great to walk the dogs. We have camped here for years and always look forward to coming back. You can't go wrong for the price and location.

Date of Stay:

Showers hot and lots of water pressure. Has a washer and dryer. Trails are in terrible shape - don't use them. Campground is nice. Lots of pull-throughs, good utilities, good OTA TV, MiFi only with amps and antennas. Lots of winding road to get here. Nice and quiet unless Bama is playing. Decks are nice with a little view of the lake through the trees.

Date of Stay:

Easy to get to, but just about anywhere you go there is lots of Slow traffic. The sites are level and gravel, water pressure is low, electric was good. WIFI was out for 4 days - when it was working it was good - several stations to pick from around the park. Walmart is down the street and gas was $1.99. Propane in the park is $4.25/gal. They had entertainment Friday and Saturday night. Bath house was very clean, but can fog up with people taking showers.

This is a small state park 41 total sites (4 full hook-up) including cabins. There are maybe 5 sites that don't look like a ski jump in full sun. You are either badly tilted side to side or very badly front to back. Bring a lot of leveling blocks. There is a long one lane road in and out of the park - make sure no one else is on it if you are towing 4 down -the only pull off is the dump station half way down the road. Bathrooms and showers were well maintained with a washer and dryer available at $1.25 and double sink for doing dishes. TV and satellite are hit and miss based on site. Not much to do in the park except relax and have a campfire. There is a shallow stream (4" to 6" deep) along the low side of the park - I didn't see any fish or wildlife in it.
