A 6 rating may be generous. We use this park to visit our kids in Greenfield. There's not really another choice. The pull through sites are gravel - very old gravel with weeds mixed in. They are relatively level. The hookups are old and in need of being spiffed up. Our sewer connection had been badly cross threaded and CG maintenance had to use a huge wrench and my hammer. This area hasn't been mowed although one site was mowed by the resident since if you have a longer rate, you have to mow your own grass. (I don't carry a mower!!) Most of the long-termers are in the lower part of the CG and that area is depressing to drive through. There are a few in the pull-through area and their sites are pretty messy although better than the lower area. The staff is quirky - friendly but lots of little rules. Initial reactions tend to be "No." I could only wash the front of my coach since it was the weekend. I was warned three times not to "make a mess." I'm not sure how one would define a mess given the condition of the CG. There is golf for a fee and the Par 3 course looks pretty nice. Fishing and lots of vacant fields to walk and for pets to exercise. Resort is a stretch but for an overnight or if you need to be in the area, it's OK.

We stayed here for an overnight. It is a very good park - convenient to I-75 with two Pilot's for refueling at the exit. As noted before, use the exit from the south. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. The CG seems pretty new and there are things that will improve over time. There is a really nice lake and the rules are very pet-friendly. Access to Kentucky Horse Park and other attractions would make this a good base camp for an extended stay. Why only an 8? The roads need to be reworked - they're rough and rutted. Our site wasn't terribly level. The gravel hasn't packed down well. The camper before us had put his levelers down and we could see an 8" deep cylinder-shaped depression so we chose not to put ours down. The lady who checked us in said that when there is a lot of rain, there can be issues. Having said that, we will definitely stay here again for a longer period. There are just too may pluses to worry about the newness issues.

Great park for one night passing through or a base for visiting the area. The staff is great and helpful. We've stayed here before and really like it. Lots of snowbirds this time on the way home. Very pet friendly and the pond is beautiful - wish we'd had time to fish. The CG would be 10 if the streets were wider. You can't get a 45' MH into the sites pulling a toad without running over the grass. The owner told us he had used a 40 footer for planning and wished he had thought about a 45. He said he knew about it and it wasn't a problem. The sites are a bit tight but the shrubbery provides a bit of privacy.

It's not easy to add anything to what's already been said. Expensive but not for what you get. The sites are large and you have some pretty good privacy. Be sure to eat at Hogfish Gill nearby.

This is a very good park. We stayed here for two nights and went to Shark River Everglades NP. It is well located for both Miami and the Everglades (Duh - Check the name!) Our site was a grass pull-thru but level and well maintained. The staff is also very good and very helpful. We didn't try the Wi-Fi - just easier to plan to use our hotspot. Coffee every morning with a chance to meet and mingle. This is a go to spot for us.

We stayed here in peak season in a premium site which explains the rate. In our view it was worth it. We faced the "river" which is really a mangrove filled bay with rivers running through it. The staff was excellent and brought us nice, logoed coffee cups to our site The park is beautifully maintained with paved roads and pavers on the sites. The landscaping is tasteful and beautiful. The clubhouse is one of the best we've seen and there is a happy hour at 4PM with a bar until about 8 or 8:30. Good food is close by - walking distance in at least one case. There is a lot to see in the Everglades and a lot of Old Florida. We drove to Chokoloskee and saw even more of Old Florida. The Havana Cafe in Chokoloskee was so good we went back the next day. Things were going to start closing in May so I doubt as an earlier poster suggested that this is a great place out of season. The airboat ride was unimpressive.

This is our new stop on the way to Florida from NC. As noted the sites are level and concrete; the roads are paved. The landscaping is very well maintained. We met the owner who noticed we had circled once. (The office was closed when we arrived.) I told him I was concerned about driving on the grass in our 45' coach. He was a great guy and said he had messed up when he measured and planned for 40' coaches. He said just go ahead and do the best you can - what a refreshing attitude. This entire part of GA and north FL has the fragrance of paper - they call it the smell of money - can't blame the park for that and it's not really that noticeable IMHO. There are lots of places to eat and everyone we met seemed to be friendly and have one or two dogs. We'd go here again for an overnight or to explore the area. There is a LOT to do around Brunswick.

This is a really top notch resort. The sites are well laid out. Our on a small pond. The staff is friendly and professional. The area around here – basically Traverse City – has so much to do that you could easily stay here a month or more and be busy every day. A longer say is also a great possibility – just relax and spend the summer. We got a serious lecture about controlling our dog – all the residents watched - we were told. Not a big deal, but I guess some people need the lecture. However, we found the owners/residents did in fact seem to be watching us closely. The resort and staff – a 9/10. The residents – a 6/7. The Traverse Bay area a 10. Prices were reasonable – we’d stay again, but we sure wish the gang was more friendly.

This is a great resort in a great area. It is laid out on a natural prairie like piece of land. The roads are easy to navigate and the sites are generous with patterned concrete pads. The areas around the sites are planted in wildflowers with a few trees and in one area a grove of trees. The owner lots are landscaped pretty well, but you don’t get the luxury resort feeling: just a really comfortable, natural feel. Most sites had firepits with chairs. If you were renting an owner site there were often many more amenities. There is so much to do in the area: Kayaking, Hiking, Fishing and more. We saw three teenagers go paddle-boarding up one of the slow moving rivers! This is an outdoor lovers paradise. Sleeping Bear Dunes, Glen Arbor, Sutton’s Bay, Leland and Traverse City are nearby for world-class dining and shopping. (OK the dunes are for hiking.) Back at the resort, the staff is helpful, fun and friendly and the folks who are there for the season and the transients all were friendly. There were several get-togethers and potlucks. I don’t think IB is a 10: more likely and 8.5 compared to some really luxurious (with prices to match) parks we’ve stayed in.

Third time here. Friendly staff, great location. The other campers were friendly and good to get to know. This isn't an "Upscale Resort" It is a great campground. Two good restaurants and the nearby Cap's is top drawer. It's sandy but excuse me - it's on the ocean! It is our go to spot in St Augustine.

LCC is a really fine place. "Staff" is really the owners. They couldn't be more accommodating and friendly. If you're looking for a resort this isn't it. If you like meeting real folks and having an enjoyable evening or more, this IS it. Our site leaves a bit to be desired - not real level and right along the drive, but it works. We'd give the site a 6 but the overall CG a 9. The CG itself is really fun - fishing, hiking and fresh eggs for sale. Only 2 sites would accommodate our 45'. Ask for #14. There are a lot of more permanent campers here, but they are friendly and their sites are well-kept. Almost all of them seem to have small gardens going so mid-late summer should be a good time to be here! We'll stay here again anytime it fits our schedule.

Great layout. Easy access and large lots. Great for families or for a stop on the way north or south. Beautiful ponds for walking or fishing. VERY pet friendly. Terrific staff and lots of activities. It appeared many families come here regularly for weekend getaways. We met several friendly groups. It's a bit off the interstates, but so nice to have a relaxing evening. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. TV reception may be an issue (No cable) but we just used DirectTV. Our biggest reason for an 8 was the apparent concentration of fire ant mounds in the field near the ponds. We were careful and still were given a couple of nibbles.

This is a great park. We really enjoyed our 4 day stay and plan to stay longer next time. The sites are private and large. We had good vegetation between us and our neighbors who were generally friendly. The fishing pier, beaches (River and Ocean) and the long paths for walking were all enjoyable. A good park store and friendly staff - not overly so but professional. Why only an 8? Our site had poison ivy growing among the native shrubbery and there was more trash than there should have been among the bushes. Having signs asking not to litter obviously isn't enough. I know it is a BEACH camp, but if the sites could be partially paved to reduce the tracking of sand that would be a serious plus, but it isn't enough for a downgrade. We didn't use the restaurants but they looked fine. Cap's is just too good and right next door.

Our second time here. We only stayed one night but as before we put this at the top of our list. It's convenient access from I-95 and would be a fine base for travel into Savannah. The staff is helpful and friendly. The only reason it isn't a 10 is the spaces are sand and not really level because of tree roots.

Date of Stay:

This CG gets a 10 in almost all categories - friendliness, ease of reservation, easy on/off I-95, nice store, help with a (self inflicted) problem. The spaces were a not very level around the actual parking site - tree roots and uneven ground. It was raining when we arrived so there was water standing where I needed to hookup. It was gone the next morning. We were only passing through, but would stay here again for overnight or to visit Savannah.
