Buddy's Lakeside Park (Monthly Only), Inglis, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Nightly rate reflects monthly charge plus estimated electric. Diamond in the rough. New owners are slowly repairing, replacing, and restoring this sweet RV park. Located on Lake Rousseau with an emphasis on fishing, although no swimming is allowed (lots of gators). It's a really pretty place with great neighbors who watch out for one another. It's quiet and peaceful. Nice laundry that's reasonably priced ($1.75 wash/$1 dry). There's a mix of permanent residents and those just staying for a short time. No cable and OTA is spotty and inconsistent (not a big deal to me), but their WiFi is fantastic. It has great potential and these folks are working hard to make it meet that potential. We camped at Buddy's Lakeside Park (Monthly Only) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Small grocery and restaurants within 6 miles; Walmart a bit over 10 miles. Head into Crystal River and there's lots of restaurants and shops. Plenty to do here if you like to fish or go out on a boat. Plenty of other activities are just a short drive away. About 30 miles from Ocala and 100 miles from Disneyworld.

LaPlace Riverside RV Park, Laplace, Louisiana

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Quiet, adults only park that caters to those working in the area. They do not allow children & that is clearly stated on their website, along with reasons why. It's a no-frills park. There is wifi, but no cable, bathhouse, or laundry. OTA gave us plenty of tv viewing. Reasonably priced laundromats are within a couple of miles, as are Walmart, Home Depot, & grocery stores. There are quite a few delicious seafood restaurants within 20 miles (some closer), along with a variety of other restaurants, including fast food. There is a padlocked gate at the back, but park residents are given access to a key. You can walk up the hill to the levee path (paved) for many miles of walking, running, or biking. It also offers spectacular views of the sunrise & sunset. This is not a destination rv park. There is no shade. It is a nice, quiet spot to park your camper for the duration. Folks that live there are usually at work during the day. They're all friendly, but everyone pretty much stays to themselves. I'd give them 10 stars if they had a laundry on site. We camped at LaPlace Riverside RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Walmart is a little over 2 miles away. Home Depot is about 1 mile. I would highly recommend Frenier Landing (LaPlace), Off The Dock Seafood (LaPlace), Portside Seafood (St Rose), The Seafood Pot (New Sarpy), & Middendorf's Seafood (Akers). Take a tour with Cajun Pride Swamp Tours while you're there.

Lake City RV Resort (formerly Oaks "N" Pines), Lake City, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Traveling from SC to Louisiana & the truck decided to take a vacation. Luckily, it chose the I-10 exit where this rv park is located to stop. Check-in was quick & painless, site was long enough to accommodate our 32' TT, truck, & car. Owners seem to be in the process of beautifying the park & it shows. It's a lovely place with lots of shade. The spaces are a bit close, but our slide & awning could be extended with no problems. Yes, there's highway noise, but if you choose an rv park that runs parallel to a major interstate, that can be expected. I turned on my fan next to the bed & it knocked out most all of the noise. Only an overnight stay until we could make arrangements on vehicle repairs & truck rental to get us where we needed to go, so we didn't use the laundry, bathhouse, or clubhouse. If we are ever in the area again (hopefully for a more leisurely trip), I wouldn't hesitate to choose this rv park. We camped at Lake City RV Resort (formerly Oaks "N" Pines) in a Travel Trailer.

Moon Landing RV Park & Marina, Cross Hill, South Carolina

Date of Stay: December, 2016 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

What a sweet campground!! Clean, quiet, peaceful, & run by some very friendly folks. It's located on Lake Greenwood & there are such beautiful sights to see when the sun is rising over the water. My only regret is that we were only able to stay for 2 weeks. We camped at Moon Landing RV Park & Marina in a Travel Trailer.

Closest Walmart Supercenter is approximately 22 miles away in Greenwood, but there is a BiLo 13 miles away & a Dollar General 6-1/2 miles away. There are a few local restaurants within a 6 mile drive, but we didn't try any of those. Greenwood has loads of restaurants & shopping.

Jones Creek RV Park, Jones Creek, Texas

Date of Stay: August, 2016 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Nightly rate reflects monthly charge plus electric. We were in the rv park for almost 7 weeks & I wish we could have stayed much longer. Friendly, helpful folks who always have a minute to chat & are ready to assist in any way necessary. And there's banana trees!! It's a small park, but plenty of space between campers. We loved it here & would definitely recommend it. We camped at Jones Creek RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

10 miles to Lake Jackson, where there's plenty of shopping, including Walmart, & restaurants. And if you get a chance to take the Paddlewheeler River cruise from Dido's Seafood Restaurant (about 12 miles away), do it!! It's a beautiful sunset ride down the San Bernard River.

Beachfront RV Park and Resort, Freeport, Texas

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate reflects monthly charge & doesn't include electric charge. Beautiful park right on the beach, although a bit pricy. Always quick to address questions & issues. I would give it 10 stars for a laundry & cable service. There's a nice beach walkway with a bench area in the center. Picnic tables at all sites, which is always a nice touch. We camped at Beachfront RV Park and Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Lost River RV Park, Baytown, Texas

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Price reflects monthly rate & electric. We enjoyed our stay here. It's surprisingly quiet to be just off I-10. Wifi is a bit unreliable as it goes out randomly. Park could use some clean up, but they are in the process of expanding & a lot of time & energy is being devoted to that at the moment. Other residents are friendly but not intrusive. Very large & reasonably priced laundry on the premises. The sunrise views over the river are unbelievably beautiful. We were there while my husband worked in the area. If he heads back in that area, this will be the first place I'll check for availability. We camped at Lost River RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Jolly Acres RV Park and Storage, Saint George, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2009 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

My husband and I have been here at Jolly Acres for about a month and a half while he is working in the area. While this park is a bit out of the way, it is a fantastic place to stay. Everyone here is friendly and pleasant. The owners are generous, helpful folks who always share smiles and friendly greetings. This has been one of the best RV parks we have chosen. It's clean, quiet, and well-kept. We will be moving out of the area soon, but plan to return after the first of the year for another work project and we already know where we plan to stay on our return. We camped at Jolly Acres RV Park and Storage in a Motorhome.

Shady Lake RV Park, Leesville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: March, 2009 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

This park was on a large highway, but if you are in the back of the park, the noise level is minimal. The sites are fairly level, but there are lots of trees to maneuver around. We had a problem with their sewer lines backing up on a Saturday and were told that we would have to wait until Monday, since a weekend call would cost more money. So we could not use our bathroom in the camper for a couple of days until their lines were repaired. There is a sizable pond at the entrance to the park and fishing is allowed. We would stay here again if we go back into the area. We camped at Shady Lake RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Aire RV Park & Campground, Hollywood, South Carolina

Date of Stay: January, 2009 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

While this is a decent place to stay, there are some issues with what rules seem to apply to what campers. Some of the long term residents tend to party it up several times a month and it can get pretty noisy. There is also a railroad track nearby, with a couple of nightly runs between 7pm and 11pm. This campground is convenient to shopping, post offices, restaurants and is about 30 minutes from Charleston or Folly Beach. Due to the noise issue, we probably would not stay here again. We camped at Lake Aire RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.
