Paul B. Johnson State Park, Hattiesburg, Mississippi

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice State Park. Full hookups, including 50 amp and sewer. We stayed in the open Pull Thru sites near the office. They are open and level and long enough to leave toad hooked up. They have more sites back in the woods that are more traditional sites and they looked level and large enough for most rigs. We camped at Paul B. Johnson State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Enter by way of South Lake Road off of U.S. 49. It connects to Geiger Lake Road that is a straight shot into the park. Some GPS units don't show this connection and take you in by way of Tower Road ( a few miles north on US 49). That's a narrow curvy road and takes you in the back entrance to the park. Ignore the GPS and go on to South Lake Road.

Oak Mountain State Park, Pelham, Alabama

Overall Rating:      

Nice state park. Some sites are small for big rigs, but most will accommodate them. Sites are level and paved with asphalt. No sewer hookups. Only a few pull thoroughs. We camped at Oak Mountain State Park in a Motorhome.

Frog City RV Park, Duson, Louisiana

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Good place for an overnight stop. Right off the freeway. Roads and sites are good gravel. Sites are all pull through, level, and long enough to leave toad hooked up. Managers are friendly and helpful. They guide you to the site, and one even guided me on foot when the golf cart was in use by another employee! This is a regular stop for us every year when we travel this way. We camped at Frog City RV Park in a Motorhome.

Entry can be tricky the first time you're here. Take an easy U turn to the right just before the Shell station and follow the road around the hotel into the campground. It's easier than it sounds. The turns are wide and the road is good.

Lynchburg NW/Blue Ridge Parkway KOA (formerly Wildwood Campground), Monroe, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

New owners, new to KOA. Looks like they upgraded prices to KOA standards without much other upgrades. It's an OK campground and the main attraction is that it's close to the Blue Ridge Parkway. Narrow gravel roads, but sites are level, no cable and satellite is pretty much impossible through the trees. Only got two networks on the Jack antenna. No cell phone coverage. They have Wi-Fi, but it's glacially slow! Maybe the new owners will get it in shape, but now it's not there. In short, if you need an overnight near the Parkway, it's OK. If you expect amenities, find somewhere else. One caution. The stop sign at the exit to the parkway has a blind view to the right, and we almost got t boned by a car coming around the curve at about 70 mph. We camped at Lynchburg NW/Blue Ridge Parkway KOA (formerly Wildwood Campground) in a Motorhome.

Down By The River Campground, Pineola, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $42.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground has some good points, and some bad stuff. First the good ones: concrete roads, concrete pads and patios, very well kept grounds. Decent Wi-Fi (albeit kinda slow), easy access to Blue Ridge Parkway. Then the not so good. With the pull-throughs you have to cross grass to get to the pad (we came in after a rain, and it was mushy mud). Roadways are very narrow and we had to go all around the campground to pull into a site right across from the office. No credit cards - cash or check only. Sites are wide enough, but overlap from the sites behind made the rear of our coach 6 feet from the rear of our neighbor's coach. Most sites are seasonal or permanent. Staff was not really rude, just a "don't care" attitude. Don't let the "Down by the River" name fool you. There is a river, but the only sites by the river are a few tent sites. Not even a path to walk by the river. Check-in was OK, but certainly not friendly. Then, when we found a problem with our sewer connection, the woman looked at us and said "what am I supposed to do?" Only after some prodding did she get her husband (the "maintenance man") to come and fix it. Only took him 5 minutes, but he wouldn't even speak to us! So, all in all, it's not a terrible place, but not a great place either. With a little work and a big attitude adjustment, it could be a great place! Next time we'll look for another campground. We camped at Down By The River Campground in a Motorhome.
