This is, by far, the best campground that I have stayed in. The sites are huge, with a wonderful concrete drive leading to each site. Its way out in the country, across from the Goethe State Park. They have wonderful facilities for horses, so you can vacation with your horse, and have 120 miles of trails right across the road. The stars are bright at night, as there are no city lights nearby. The place is great for bicycling, hiking, trail riding, horse events, and just for quiet getaways. The folks here treat you like family. The campground is pristine. Its beautifully maintained and clean. The campground is new, and is just gorgeous. The horse stalls and facilities are wonderful. You can take care of your horse yourself, or for a fee, they will take care of it for you. If you don't ride, but would like to, there is a trail ride group up the road. There are beaches not too far away, as well as quaint small towns. There are rivers and lakes with boat rentals. A major city is within 85 miles for serious shopping, theme parks and other city stuff. This place has it all! Call them for more info, or go to their website. You'll be glad you did. We camped at Goethe Trailhead Ranch in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was scary. Its in a really old, bad part of town. I wasn't comfortable walking around in the park, and absolutely wasn't comfortable in the neighborhood. The park is the closest to Busch Gardens, but I would rather stay somewhere farther away that is nicer. Most of the residents are full-time permanent, in trailers that are no longer mobile. The park was noisy at night, with some pretty loud late parties, and a fight. The owner is hard of hearing, so this doesn't bother him. I wouldn't stay there again. The lots are level, and of good size. We camped at Tampa RV Park (formerly Camp Nebraska) in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is really close to the beach, and is one of the few that is, which why, I believe, their rates are so high. I could have stayed in a hotel for the same amount, however. The park is nice, but the sites seemed crowded to me. I wasn't able to get my wireless to work. There are lots of activities, but since I don't usually do campground activities, they didn't do much for me. They have a trash pickup, and guys who run around in golf carts to help. We had trouble parking our 5th wheel, as its 40 feet and we had to back it into a very small slot. There is a bike trail that goes for many miles right outside the campground. The entrance is industrial junk, but once you get into the campground, its quite nice and beach like. I would have liked this campground, had it been less expensive. We camped at St Petersburg / Madeira Beach KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
