Campground at Barnes Crossing, Tupelo, Mississippi

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for 3 nights on a trip north from Florida to Missouri. Our plan was to spend 2 days touring the area with a focus on the Natchez Trace (see below). The campground is well located with convenient highway access and LOTS of local shopping.

The park is hilly with lots of trees. This is good as it creates a better sense of privacy despite sites being close together. Sites are generally level on gravel, do not have pads/patios, but do have tables. Most are fairly long/pull-thru. Hook-ups were in good condition. WiFi is free throughout the park, but speed is not great. Cable service is excellent.

The bathrooms leave a lot to be desired. They are clean, but generally unattractive and, I'd say, basic. All considered, I'd expected better. We camped at Campground at Barnes Crossing in a Motorhome.

Capital City RV Park, Montgomery, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here on an overbite stop while passing through Montgomery. I liked this park's location as it avoided Montgomery traffic coming in from the east and heading out to the north. It turned out to be a good choice. Sites are pull-thru, flat, on gravel and with all hookups in excellent condition. Sites are, however, pretty close together. Bathrooms are EXCELLENT: there are 4 private suites with toilet, sink, shower, a chair and shelf. Everything spotless. There is a small pond on the site and a playground - didn't see other amenities. Cable and wifi were very good. We camped at Capital City RV Park in a Motorhome.

Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park), Americus, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed her one night on our way north/west to allow a visit the next morning to the Jimmy Carter NM. Now that the park is KOA, our Good Sam discount was not honored - after some cajoling, however, we got another discount - great. Rate was a bit high, but we wanted to be close to Plains, and there aren't many options in the area. Sites are on gravel in a treeless field. That said, despite monsoon-like rain overnight, everything drained perfectly. Bathrooms were very clean with a/c. There is a very functional a/c'd exercise room. WiFi is said to be available in the "quaint" clubhouse. A round of golf is included in the rate - but we don't golf. We camped at Americus KOA (formerly Brickyard Plantation Golf Club & RV Park) in a Motorhome.

Clerbrook Golf & RV Resort, Clermont, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here 1 night, using a Passport America discount, on our way north. The rvpark is convenient to the FL Turnpike but has very little traffic noise - a good thing. The park is clean and well maintained. As our stay was in the "off season", there was very little going on. Our site, in the older part of the park was between two older park models. It was on grass, level, and with good water and electric service. Overall good for an overnight or short stay. Note, however, there are limited bath house facilities. We camped at Clerbrook Golf & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The Virginian Lodge RV Resort, Jackson, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $67.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is a mixed bag. On the one hand, it is pretty much a large parking lot like area with minimal grass areas and few trees. However, the sites are level and well maintained. The electric and water service are very good, as is the wifi (among the best campground service I've seen) and cable. They advertise a pool and spa, which is available at the neighboring motel. This, however, is a loooong walk from the rv area and there are no changing rooms/showers available there to make the trip possible in dry cloths (given the cool ambient air). Showers are clean and hot but they are minimal - actual area to shower/dress is smaller than in our View. Best thing about this park, however, is the free city shuttle bus that takes you into and around Jackson. Our rate was Good Sam (10% off standard). We camped at The Virginian Lodge RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Ponderosa Campground, Cody, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Park is well maintained and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Sites are packed in, with a very strange configuration. Our site, 74, was shaded and more spacious, but barely long enough for our 25' RV. Best part about the park, though, is that you can walk to the Buffalo Bill Center (incredible place) and to downtown. Plus the tour bus stops at the park and there is bus service to the night rodeo. This convenience makes the park a winner. We camped at Ponderosa Campground in a Motorhome.

Buffalo KOA , Buffalo, Wyoming

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Well maintained, level sites. Nice pool and hot tub. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent showers. WiFi nearly as good as at home. We stayed one night on our way west to Cody/Yellowstone. Called ahead for a site. Glad we did as the park, nearly empty at 3, was packed by 6. We highly recommend this for a stopover or longer stay. Buffalo is an interesting and pleasant little town and worth an afternoon or full days visit. We camped at Buffalo KOA in a Motorhome.

International RV Park & Campground, Daytona Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very nice and large RV park very convenient to both the I-95 and I-4 corridors near Daytona Beach. We stayed 1 night while in transit and the park was very pleasant. Excellent pools, but not much else that we saw for entertainment. We stayed on Passport America, so the park was a real bargain. Person at the desk was very helpful. Sites are generally level and most are paved. Our site did not have cable TV, but many sites have DirecTV service (not sure if at extra charge). Wi-Fi seemed to work fine for my iPhone. We'd recommend this park for overnight and for visits to the Daytona area. We camped at International RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Fair Harbor RV Park, Perry, Georgia

Date of Stay: July, 2011 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 1 night while in transit. The park is Passport America (rate we paid) and, as such, is a good value and very convenient to I-75. Sites are fairly large with most having some shade trees. Although well maintained, the sites are not totally level and we had to work to get close to level. Park has very limited amenities, making it good for overnight but less interesting as a 'destination.' Good selection of local sites and restaurants are available in the area. We camped at Fair Harbor RV Park in a Motorhome.

Volunteer Park Family Campground, Heiskell, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed one night while in transit through the Knoxville area. Park was clean, but unpaved. Sites are of reasonable size and accommodate larger RV's. Water, electric and sewer worked fine, as did Wi-Fi. There is a smallish pool (we did not use it). Not much else here for activities and the area is pretty rural/rustic (Waste Management facility is next door). Afternoon and night were quiet/peaceful, but early morning had a fair amount of truck traffic on the local road adjacent to the park. Very convenient to I-75 and there were several interesting places to visit in the area just north of the park (e.g. Norris Dam). We camped at Volunteer Park Family Campground in a Motorhome.

Holly Cove RV Resort & Cabins, Whittier, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We have friends that seasonal camp at this park, so we stayed here while visiting with them. The park is heavily treed and very hilly. The sites, however, are well maintained (gravel) and fairly level. The park has many long-term/seasonal units, as well as several park models. That said, it has a very pleasant and has a quality feel to it. There is a nice pool and a rec hall, where residents/guests meet for various activities. Water, electric and Wi-Fi seemed to be good quality and reliable. Not sure if we'd stay here if not for our friends, as it may not be ideally located and is a bit more hilly than we'd prefer. That said, however, it is a lovely setting and worth a visit. We camped at Holly Cove RV Resort & Cabins in a Motorhome.

Shuman's RV Trailer Park, Canadys, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an excellent stopover CG while in transit in the Charleston area. It is a small, family run CG. (I understand that a couple ran it, but the husband has passed.) The Mrs. is friendly and helpful and wanted to ensure that we were set up OK and everything was working fine. Our site was shaded and paved. Most have shade but some are not paved. The park is literally across the road from Colleton State Park, which has a lovely nature trail and river area. We wanted to stay in Colleton, but they don't do 1-night reservations, so we preferred a confirmed site at Shuman's. As you can't beat the price and location, this will be flagged as a recommended stopover on our north-south travels. We camped at Shuman's RV Trailer Park in a Motorhome.

Crown Cove RV Park (formerly Crown International Campground), Fort Mill, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at this park with friends while visiting the Charlotte NC area. It seemed to be the closest to where we were visiting and had a lower rate, with Passport America discount, than other parks in the area. Park is quite congested with sites close together and many sites with rigs that go from end-to-end. If being not very spacious was a downside, there is absolutely nothing to do at this park. They do have Wi-Fi (worked well). You can walk around the ruins of the Tammy & Jim Baker facilities that the park seems to have been part of originally. (Was Lakeside Cabins and Campground). The park is also extremely hard to find as the entrance is on roads not widely available on older GPS. Staff was friendly, but it took hours to respond to an 'out of paper' report for the men's room, so not sure if they are understaffed or have some other issues. We would not recommend this park for extended stays and there may be better options in the area for quick overnight stops while in transit. We camped at Crown Cove RV Park (formerly Crown International Campground) in a Motorhome.

Little Talbot State Park, Jacksonville, Florida

Date of Stay: June, 2011 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed in this park one night while transiting north. It was a very pleasant stopover, although not very convenient to I-95/9A corridor. Sites are very wooded and generally large/private. Our site was quite out of level and we needed to work hard to get close enough to be comfortable. This appeared to be about average for the sites we observed. The scenery and amenities in the campground area were not particularly good, but the beach (a short bike ride away), was quite lovely and made the visit very memorable. Although the campground was full on the night we stayed, it was very quiet and peaceful and the overall park (cg & beach) felt very spacious. We likely would stay again: for at least 2 nights, in order to better enjoy the beach. We camped at Little Talbot State Park in a Motorhome.

Locust Lake State Park, Barnesville, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: June, 2009 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

The setting is outstanding and the park is very peaceful. We stopped for an overnight, but will plan to go back for a longer visit. Sites are large and shady and fairly well spaced out. Some, however, are on slopes, so plan to level your unit when setting up. There is no water at the sites, so you need to having your freshwater fairly full, if you plan to use it. Good camp store with prepared food options - but with limited overall supplies. Road in is a bit of a challenge, so be careful -- that said, a short drive from I-81. We recommend this park. We camped at Locust Lake State Park in a Motorhome.
