Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park, Jacksonville, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

While at this park I was planning to give it a much higher rating, then we were ready to leave. Apparently we were lucky when we entered, because we had no problem with the roadways or trees. Just the opposite on departure. VERY narrow, twisty roadways with almost impossible turns for our 32 ft. fiver. Many palmettos scraped, and several near-misses with trees. And that's too bad, because otherwise this is a wonderful beach-front campground, especially for a city-county park. I don't usually base my ratings on a single park feature, but these roadways are exceptional. If you are using a big rig, forewarned is forearmed. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Blythe Island Regional Park Campground, Brunswick, Georgia

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a surprisingly nice campground in a county park. Friendly, helpful staff, level sites, and heavily wooded with well-maintained trees and roadways. Cable was OK, wifi was marginal, but they promise repairs soon for wifi issues caused by last year's hurricane. We would definitely stay here again when in the area. We camped at Blythe Island Regional Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tanglewood Park Campground, Clemmons, North Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a gem of a little campground located in a huge county park. We've stayed here before and the place never disappoints. The overall Tanglewood Park offers more amenities than can be mentioned here, including two 18 hole golf courses and an equestrian center. The 44 site RV park is nestled in a quiet grove of trees. Bathhouse is modern and spotless. Roads and sites are paved, but some sites are not at all level. Water, sewer, 50amp and cable hookups worked fine. WiFi availability varies with your location in the park. The issue with some unlevel sites and the weak WiFi are the only reason I don't rate this park 10. We camped at Tanglewood Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Cove Creek RV Resort, Sevierville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice campground in a picturesque valley about 10 miles from the crowds of Pigeon Forge. Clubhouse-style bathhouse is spotless and modern. Very good laundry facilities, exercise equipment and an apparently nice pool which was closed for the season. Roadways are wide, some are paved and some are smooth gravel--same for the sites, which are wide and long. There are a variety of prices because of the variety of sites. One BIG WARNING, which has been mentioned in other reviews (which we ignored). Do not bring a big rig to this park from the Townsend side. The road is very narrow with very steep and sharp switchbacks. In fact, on our way in we saw police assisting a fifth-wheeler who had slipped off the pavement on the way out. No injuries and I didn't see much damage, but a tow truck was needed to get the trailer back on the road. No problem coming in from the Pigeon Forge side. Also, I'd suggest reserving by phone rather than their online res service. We booked on line for a mountain view gravel site and on arrival the system had put us in the group camp kitchen. The friendly manager switched us to site 35, and when we got there found it occupied. He then told us to go to site 31, which was fine. We camped at Cove Creek RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga, Rossville, Georgia

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice park which is 2 blocks south of the Georgia/Tennessee line. They use the TN address because they own a trailer park just north of the line and the TN directions are safer for large rigs. Lots of directional signs, so there's no problem finding the place. Restrooms and showers are spotless, sites are reasonably level gravel with concrete patios. Roadways and sites are a bit narrow and the sites are a bit close together. Be warned, if you have a big class A the narrow roadways can cause problems. Someone clipped and removed a mirror from the class A parked in the site next to us. The mirror was just inside the site, but very close to the roadway. The class A also had its awning extended which would have made it near impossible for me to turn my 5th wheel onto the roadway without performing an awningectomy. Fortunately, the site directly across from us was vacant so I was able to exit through there. We camped at Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga in a Fifth Wheel.

Deerlick Creek COE, Tuscaloosa, Alabama

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $11.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely deep-woods campground in an Army Corps of Engineers park. Sites are well-spread out and the trees make for decent privacy. The $11 rate is based on the senior discount. The regular rate is $22/night. The roadways leading to and inside the park are winding and hilly, but manageable. The sites have close to level, wide concrete pads, fire rings and picnic tables on the patios. Sites are spacious enough to fit your tow/towed vehicles. This isn't close to town, but grocery shopping is about 15 minutes away. No sewer connections at the sites, but there is a convenient dump station. 50 amp worked well, water pressure seemed a bit low, but usable. Off-air TV provided limited stations but with a strong digital signal. Your satellite will only work in certain sites due to the think foliage overhead. Strong Verizon cell and 4G service. The restrooms and showers are modern and clean. We camped at Deerlick Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Pontchartrain Landing, New Orleans, Louisiana

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $59.00
Overall Rating:

This was our second visit here so we didn't panic when we approached the park and saw the abandoned industrial buildings nearby. The approach can be a bit off-putting, as can the fact that some GPS units have trouble with the address, but once you overcome the challenge of getting here you will be pleasantly surprised. This is a wonderful waterfront campground. Roadways are wide, gravel spaces are a bit narrow but most are separated by nice landscaping, so privacy isn't an issue. Good water pressure, good 50amp power, decent wifi and adequate cable. There is a wide range of site types ranging from full-hookup basic to country-club luxurious. There's a decent restaurant/bar on the property, a nice pool, a marina, boat rentals and terrific and helpful staff. The only real downside is that the park isn't near the French Quarter, but there is reasonably-priced shuttle service to and from the fun. Rates are high, but this is New Orleans. We camped at Pontchartrain Landing in a Fifth Wheel.

Plantation Park, Natchez, Mississippi

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This place could be decent with a bit of effort by management. It is partly a trailer park, but the RV sites have great potential. Concrete and gravel pads are the longest and widest I've seen, and our site was perfectly level. Digital cable TV was quite good. Water, sewer and 50 amp hookups worked fine. The bathrooms and showers looked like they get cleaned maybe once a month. No toilet paper for the first few days and never any paper towels. Also, no hot water in the bathroom. Staffing is minimal and doesn't seem to do too much. Natchez is an interesting place to visit and it deserves a better RV park. We camped at Plantation Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Timberlake Campground, Brandon, Mississippi

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely campground on the outskirts of Jackson. Sites are well-spaced with concrete pads. Most are under tall pine trees, and some are on the water (Ross Barnett Reservoir). The rate noted includes a $5 upcharge for a waterfront site. I've given this park a "9" rating because I try to reserve "10" for perfection or close to it. The restrooms here need updating, a coat of paint, and a scrub-down. The fixtures were clean enough, but there were lots of cobwebs, dead bugs, peeling paint and some rust throughout. The concrete pads are wide, but some are not level. The park is about evenly divided between monthly and overnight guests, but only a few sites can be reserved--most are on a first-come, first-served basis. No pull-through sites and no ground fires permitted, but sites all have grills. We would definitely return here if we're ever in the Jackson area again. We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Two Rivers Campground, Nashville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

This is an older campground down the road from Opryland. It is a family-owned campground and well managed and cared for. Bath houses were very clean, but the plumbing is a bit outdated. Sites are roomy and reasonable level. There's a shuttle service to downtown Nashville which is a very good idea since downtown is crowded, especially on nights when there's a concert or game, or both. The shuttle is $10/person round trip. The rate here may seem high, but we've stayed previously at one of the other nearby parks and the daily rate was even higher. Nashville is a tourist town, and the parks charge accordingly. We camped at Two Rivers Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tombigbee State Park, Tupelo, Mississippi

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is a decent campground in a rustic state park, but it does have some issues. First, the positives. Restrooms are modern and spotless. The park lake is very nice, and I also noticed decent tennis courts which appeared to be ok. Now the issues, which are minor, but should be mentioned. The park is understaffed and apparently not well budgeted. On arrival (the local road to the park is narrow and winding) there is an entry booth which is unmanned and the roadway past it is very narrow. Notice the damage to the corner of the roof where passing rigs have apparently hit it. There are virtually no signs directing you to the campground, so continue on the park road. You will eventually see the campground entrance and a sign indicating a campground host. We were there 3 days and ever found the host. Sites (which must be reserved in advance) are numbered, but numbers are painted on the roadway, and with autumn leaves covering the road, we went around the loop twice before we spotted them. Sites are paved, reasonable wide and somewhat level. There was no signage indicating where to check in, so we didn't. Hookups were okay, but sewer was about 10 feet from the back of the site so we needed a couple of hose extensions to hook up. Park has 30 and 50 amp service, and we hooked to 50amp. During the first two nights power went off for minutes at a time several times. When it happened again the next morning I asked a neighbor if he had power problems also and he said he did when he arrived but switched to 30amps and it was fine. We went to plug in the 30amp adaptor and found the 30a receptacle was installed upside down. Using a lot of duct tape, I managed to get the plug to stay in the receptacle. No problems with 30 amp. We eventually found the park office where we registered. Having said all that, we would stay here again. The park is nice and quiet, and reasonable close to the center of Tupelo. We camped at Tombigbee State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We've stayed in this KOA several times and it never disappoints. Well laid-out, level sites, many recreation options and convenient to Wilmington's attractions. There's even a service station with a car/RV wash right at the entrance to the park. We camped at Wilmington KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Paradise Lake and Campground, Keeling, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

A nice RV park in the woods in south central Virginia. Decent space between sites. This is a quiet, though family oriented park, but the lake is far from Paradise. Its really a large pond, not swimmable, but fishing is permitted for a fee. Small boats are available for rent. Modern and clean restroom facilities. Area is hilly so some sites aren't level. We had heavy rain while here but the place drained very well. No flooding and little mud. They do have Wi-Fi, but it was knocked out by lightning and wasn't fixed until we after we departed.

Washington DC / Capitol KOA, Millersville, Maryland

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $77.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice KOA with both wooded and open sites. Bath house clean and modern, with individual shower rooms. Staff was extremely helpful re: transportation to the sites in Washington. Just a couple of negatives to note: I understand the high price. It's a KOA near a major tourist city without a lot of RV options. But for this money I would expect cable TV and level sites. But there is no cable (but adequate antenna channels) and the staffer who directed us to our site commented that none of the sites are very level. Other than that, the place is fine and just about 60 minutes from DC and an okay place to use as a base for touring. We camped at Washington DC / Capitol KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
