Bass Haven Campground, Defuniak Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

What a nice little campground. Older park with mostly long term residents, some run down units. There are a couple cabins and a family unit which I didn't see. Rustic but so clean there weren't even any cobwebs anywhere in the restroom! Showers have very odd configuration. There are 2, but you have to walk through the dressing area of the first one to get to the one in the back. Owners are very friendly. There was work being done in the next site shortly after we arrived, but both the owner and the workers apologized for the noise. There is a nice dock where we sat and watched the turtles swimming in the lake, which is a bit overgrown near the shore. Good cable, iffy wifi, T Mobile signal was sporadic. Sites were wood chips and gravel. A bit of a ride from the interstate through an older community, but it was a good relaxing stop for us. We would definitely return if we are in the area. We camped at Bass Haven Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

It's a bit of a ride back into DeFuniak Springs, but there are some shops there. It's a pretty little town with several historic buildings.

Wills Creek RV Park, Fort Payne, Alabama

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is conveniently located off the interstate, with gas stations and shopping easily accessible. However, it is a very bare bones park. It's basically an open field. There is no tv, even with an antenna. Wifi is available but it's a waste of time. Quite a walk to the bath house which is off by itself. Not a place to use after dark, in my opinion. The bath house was older but in good condition and had recently been painted. It was clean, and showers were good sized. The owners were friendly and helpful, and warned us of impending potentially dangerous weather forecast. If you just need somewhere to stop for the night and don't care about TV and wifi, this place is ok. I would not return however. We camped at Wills Creek RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Reunion Lake RV Resort, Ponchatoula, Louisiana

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a 5 star family-focused park in progress. I'm really looking forward to seeing the finished product when we return next year. The section we were in had large concrete pads with plenty of room for our tow vehicle. There is a small lake for kayaks and paddleboards. The playground is amazing. There are 2 pools-one was designated adults only because of a swim up bar, which was only open on weekends and we were there during the week. Also closed was the Snack Bar, Founders Club and Adult Lounge-only open on weekends. Would have been nice to be able to use those since there isn't much in the area unless you want to go back on the interstate. The staff was all great and very helpful. They are always cleaning. These were absolutely the cleanest bathrooms of any campground I've ever been in. There are people riding around in golf carts picking up even the timiest bit of debris they see. The bathhouse/laundry is huge. I think there were about a dozen private bathrooms with showers. Shower head was high enough to accommodate a basketball player, but since I'm 5', I couldn't reach the shower caddy to put any of my toiletries in. There wasn't a lot of outside lighting which made walking to the showers after dark a little scary. There is a daily charge of $7.50 for wifi! I assume this is to encourage families to do things together instead of being connected to individual devices. Snowbirds should just keep this in mind. Because of the wifi charge, and the fact that some of the amenities weren't available to us, I felt the daily rate was high for this area We camped at Reunion Lake RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

There really isn't much to do in the immediate area. There is a small shopping area with a drugstore, Subway, and pizza franchise as well as a small supermarket a couple miles away. The kids will absolutely love the pool and the fountains that shoot up in the shallow end

North Beach Camp Resort, St Augustine, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $63.00
Overall Rating:      

Location , location, location. Beautifully located park between the intercoastal and the Atlantic Ocean. Most sites are fairly private with thick native vegetation. Lots of sand which contributes to the beachy vibe, but be sure to use outside mats and have a broom because the sand will follow you inside. Sadly, maintenance has been deteriorating over the past few years. Every site is raked and cleaned between uses, but in other areas, improvements are desperately needed. A simple coat of paint in the restrooms would really make a difference, as would decent shower heads instead of the cheap ones they currently have. One restroom was refurbished within the last few years, bur was cheaply done and fiberglass shower floors have no support and are already looking pathetic. Laundry facilities are woefully inadequate and it's rare all machines are in working condition. Even when reported, it takes forever for repairs to be made. At $2 a load, with the amount of use, all the machines could have been replaced several times over. Wifi is just about useless even when you're close to the modems. Cable is poor quality. There is a decent camp store. Large book swap. Staff is pleasant and helpful. 3 good restaurants within walking distance. Fishing in either the ocean across the street or the river behind the campground. I really love this park and definitely will return, but be aware that it's an older park and it shows. We camped at North Beach Camp Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Shenandoah Valley Campground, Mount Jackson, Virginia

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Passport America rate. As others have mentioned, this is a fairly new park with no shade at present. However, trees have been planted and when they grow, it will be very pleasant. Large sites, most seem to slope down. Several cabins available. Restrooms are large and clean. Showers are well thought out, with folding wooden doors for added privacy. Water pressure is excellent. Wi-Fi was very good. Limited cable stations. Campground is located within walking distance of Shenandoah Caverns (up fairly steep hill) as well as a gift shop. No sidewalks but wide grassy shoulder allowed safe walking. There is a small restaurant in the premises. Staff was very pleasant. Only negative is proximity to the highway and constant road noise. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Shenandoah Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA, Broadway, Virginia

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

This park was very overpriced for what was available. Wireless internet was not working anywhere in the park although it was advertised. The pool wasn't open this early in the season. Other reviewers noted much lower prices last fall, so I'm not sure why we were charged so much. We did have a pull through with full hookups but the price still seemed high. TV reception was OK with only about a dozen channels. Sites are fairly level gravel. There is a small brook circling the park with a wooden bridge that leads to a small fishing pond. There is a nature trail which wasn't quite ready for foot traffic this early but I still enjoyed the walk in the woods. I'm sure it's quite nice in the summer. The big plus was the updated and clean bathrooms. A very pleasant surprise, but still not worth $50. We camped at Harrisonburg / Shenandoah Valley KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Lookout Mtn. / Chattanooga West KOA, Trenton, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

I will preface this review by saying that as a snowbird traveling in early spring, I am looking for different things than a family camping during the summer would, and this is reflected in my comments. Wireless was sporadic and TV reception was poor. There seem to be many permanent residents in this park. The sites are uneven gravel, and the one we were assigned was difficult to back into because of the sharp angle, although we were told we could take the adjacent site if it would be easier. The restrooms are OLD and need major updating. The space between the shower door and frame was quite large, so there wasn't a lot of privacy in the dressing area, and after running the water for several minutes, it wasn't hot so I gave up and skipped my shower. There is some evidence of work being done at the game room. Probably wouldn't stay there again off season We camped at Lookout Mtn. / Chattanooga West KOA in a Travel Trailer.

New Orleans West KOA, River Ridge, Louisiana

Date of Stay: March, 2013 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

I can't say enough about the friendly helpful owners of this park; they go the extra mile. This isn't the typical KOA though; there are many long term campers, and what appear to be rental homes on the property. The road that brings you to the rear sites is horrible, uneven with large potholes; no easy way to get around them. There are sites near the pool that appear to be a bit close together. A little shabby, but very clean with 24 hour staffing. Laundry is large and reasonably priced. The neighborhood isn't too bad compared to others in NOLA. There is a paved recreational path on the levee across the street, though access is up a steep incline. Wi-Fi is fairly slow and spotty. We didn't use the shuttle but it seemed to be full every day. The pool was due to be open in April. We camped at New Orleans West KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Majestic Oaks RV Resort, Biloxi, Mississippi

Date of Stay: March, 2013 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of the most beautiful parks we've ever been in over a decade of camping. The staff is very friendly. It appears to be mostly long-term snowbirds. It is very pet friendly. There are supposed to be small picnic tables that convert to a bench on each site. Ours didn't have any, but several sites had 2. After 2 requests to obtain a bench , and after seeing several empty sites that did have one, I gave up. There is wireless internet, but it was slow at times. Cable had a good channel selection. There is a small pool. The laundry is clean, large, well set up and reasonably priced. The rest rooms are clean and fairly new. Just before we left, they put portable shower seats in the ladies room which I thought was very convenient. Although the surrounding neighborhood isn't the best, I would definitely stay here again. We camped at Majestic Oaks RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Anchors Aweigh RV Resort, Foley, Alabama

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

The best thing about this campground is the 6 private full bathrooms available. Just off Rt 59 which is the main drag into Gulf Shores. Concrete pads. Wireless is iffy and you need a separate code for each device including phone and e readers. One laptop worked perfectly well-everything else was hit or miss. Friendly staff. Mainly long-term snowbirds with a sense of community for those who live here. There are scheduled activities. We camped at Anchors Aweigh RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Geronimo RV Resort, Destin, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2013 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

We paid 5 nights at Passport America rate of $27 and 2 nights at $54. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and helpful. It's an easy 5 minute walk to the beach and about a mile from any store you may need, including an outlet mall. I would have rated this higher except for a couple things. It was clearly stated that dog were not allowed in the office, yet when I arrived to check in, the girl in the office had her dog with her. Hearing comments from a camper, it was clear this was the norm. Since I'm allergic to dogs, that was strike one. Strike 2 was the fact that the shower head in the non-handicapped ladies shower needs to be replaced because only half of it worked. There was only one toilet stall in the men's room. There are energy saving 15 minute timers in the rest rooms, but I don't think they are accurate. I think there should be some sort of night light in the rest room because I didn't feel safe walking into a dark room even though the switch was right inside the door. That being said, I would definitely stay there again. We camped at Geronimo RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

River View RV Park & Resort, Vidalia, Louisiana

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

This is the Passport America rate-normally $44/night, which is also the annual Passport membership fee, so we got a good deal, since we stayed 3 nights. The road to this campground goes through a depressed area, but it's well worth it. We were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves right on the banks of the Mississippi River, with a great view of the barges that float by day and night. There is a walkway along the river as well. Bathrooms are old, but well set up and clean. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Nice laundry area. Convenient location right across the river from Natchez MS. We would camp here again We camped at River View RV Park & Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This was a nice stop as a base to explore Chattanooga. Large laundry room which was nice to find. Wireless is pretty much useless-very inconsistent even at the office, which is why I graded it lower than I may have otherwise. Bathrooms were clean-separate showers were large and well set up. We enjoyed the peaceful setting. We would return to this campground. We camped at Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga in a Travel Trailer.

Jonestown / Hershey NE KOA, Jonestown, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: March, 2011 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

This park was extremely overpriced for the time of year. Though wireless internet is "available", it's only free for 60 consecutive minutes-once you sign on, the clock starts and that's it, then they charge $5 a day!! Cable has very few stations. Bathrooms are very old, the showers have a very weird configuration where the small shower head is placed on an overhead pipe-not much pressure, the room is cold,and there is no separation between the shower and the dressing area so be careful where you put your things. The only good thing about this place was the store which was well stocked with a wide variety of items. Maybe it's better in the summer, but I won't bother going back to find out.

Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA, Staunton, Virginia

Date of Stay: March, 2011 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is off the beaten path but it is worth the trip. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. Lots of trees and a small lake/stream runs through the lower level of the park. We were here off season, so not sure what it's like in the summer, though the brochure mentions many activities. At this time of year, the store was pretty empty of staples, pool was closed and no activities-would have been reasonable to offer a reduced rate. Good hot water and water pressure in the showers. Free Wi-Fi if only staying 1 night for 1 computer-need to ask for another code if you have more than 1. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA in a Travel Trailer.
