Fort Boonesborough State Park, Richmond, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

The area is beautiful, but the campground was a disappointment. Many sites are not level, pull through site are half pavement and have gravel. Out site has a huge pot hole about 6 feet by 4 feet. Bring a long water hose because you share water with the site next to you. Water hookup is nowhere near the electrical pedestal. If you are looking for peace and quiet, look elsewhere. The highway noise is extremely loud, and a cement mixing plant is within stones throw of our site and the pound noise sounds like a train running constantly and they start up at 6 a.m. obviously the camp hosts have little to do because the fire rings are full of debris. The checkin staff did not even know the hours of the park. There are only about 25 sites with sewer hookup starting with site #1. Water pressure is good. We will not be returning to this noisy environment. We camped in site 98. We did get satellite. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Colt Creek State Park, Lakeland, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

Pros: Staff was very friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. 3 pavilions which were large with one that was huge and screened in. Nice small lake with very nice fishing dock and canoes to rent. There were alligators in the lake. Very nice walking trails. Wide roads including within the campgrounds and easy entry and exit at park entrance. Sites are brand new, huge, level with hard packed pea gravel. Lots of trees surrounding the campground with only a few at some campsites but no real shade trees to speak of at the sites so you'll have no problem getting satellite. Sites are not close to each other. Plenty of space and room between sites. Nice roads for bicycling. Grocery, shopping and fuel just 15 minutes away. The park has been there since 2006 but the campground just completed February 2018. Two dump stations right at entrance/exit to campgrounds. There are 3 full hookup/sewer sites that have accessibility with one belonging to the camp host. Cons: road is only paved to just past lake/pavilions. After that it is dirt and gravel including the campgrounds. Lots of dust! Water pressure was adequate but low. No playground for children. We are in the dry season but there was high levels of standing water just off the gravel sites. They will have some serious flooding problems during rainy season. The 3 pavilions are the only picnic areas but there are nice picnic tables at each site. Great place to just go and relax at a very beautiful park. We camped at Colt Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

JBSA Fort Sam Houston RV Park (Military FamCamp), Fort Sam Houston Army Post, Texas

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Fort Sam Houston RV Park is a nice RV Park. The sites are about 100' long, and on a wide concrete pad. All sites are satellite friendly. There are two bathhouses with 3 front loader washer/dryer in each one costing $1.50. There is a small off-leash dog park. The sites have a large metal picnic table and pedestal grill. The spacing between the sites is huge. The park is very clean and manicured. You can purchase LP gas for your tanks here. There is a nice playground for the children next to a large field for sports. The downside to the park is the road noise from the highway, and you are just a couple hundred feet from railroad tracks, and the trains run day and night. The engines to the trains are loud and you would think the whistles are in your RV when they sound them off. The roads are pavement, and the sites are wide with a concrete base. We came up from Florida in December for Christmas. You must see the River Walk this time of year!! We camped at JBSA Fort Sam Houston RV Park (Military FamCamp) in a Fifth Wheel.

Blackwater River State Park , Holt, Florida

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

We camped on site 19 which was a handicap site next to bathhouse. The total park is small, with a couple short hiking trails and swimming in the Blackwater River. It is quiet, in the middle of nowhere. Milton Florida is about a 20 minute drive where there is a Walmart. Most sites are a nice pea stone gravel and level. There is also a boat access. Just up the road you can rent a canoe or kayak. Be prepared to hear a lot of Air Force helicopters overhead, what I call "The Sound of Freedom." The camp host sells firewood and does a great job keeping the bath facilities clean. Although a nice park, I doubt we will return. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tallahassee RV Park, Tallahassee, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

Access into the park not difficult. The exit traffic shares the one lane driveway. Some might consider turns to be tight, we camped in a 40 foot 5th wheel. Site is dirt/stone and would be muddy if it as raining. Sites are very close to each other, my septic access was located near my neighbors sitting area. Neighbors awning less than three feet from my RV. Park is located about a mile off interstate 10. Plenty of shade but my roof mounted Directv found satellites. They do provide cable hook up. Close access to Tallahassee downtown district. Would park here again if was visiting the area. Half the park are full timers. We camped at Tallahassee RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Stonewall Resort, Briar Point Campground , Roanoke, West Virginia

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $44.00
Overall Rating:

First off, we camped here during bow hunting season. Expect to see deer hanging from trees in the campground as they are processed by hunters also camping here. There is no hunting on state park property, but hunters use boats to access hunting lands nearby. Hunting season is from October - January. The park is clean and well manicured. To use resort amenities it cost $15.00 per site per day extra up to 4 people. Most site are unable to get satellite TV due to the location of the trees. No local TV stations and no cable. Bring plenty of DVD movies. No lighting on the campgrounds, so very dark. There are only 6 site out of the 40 that has 50 amp hookup, the rest are 30 amp. Pads are narrow, but has large gravel patio area. Nice large picnic tables. Approx 17 minute to Walmart in Weston. The resort has a nice swimming pool. Could not get Directv sat due to trees. Resort/campground is state owned, but operated by a private company (Benchmark, Corp.) We had site #23. Not sure if we will return. We camped at Stonewall Resort, Briar Point Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Clearwater RV Park, Carriere, Mississippi

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

My stay was just to visit family for Thanksgiving. This is a clean well organized and QUIET RV park. Sites are long and the base is grass. The roads are gravel which do become muddy during heavy rains. Only activity available during my stay was fishing in a small 1/4 acre pond. Most sites are level. If you are parked beneath the large oak tree by the pond, the site slopes towards the pond. If you are just looking for a quiet place to stay, and relax, then this a nice place. There is a Walmart in Picayune about 6 miles away. We camped at Clearwater RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Arrowhead Campsites, Inc., Marianna, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

I am tough when rating campgrounds, and I rate this one average. It is not a resort, nor is it a dump. Ample spacing between sites, my site not level so need cribbing under tires. Roads are dirt and would be muddy during rain. Swimming pool appeared to be clean. Store and with diesel and gas on site. There is a small boat ramp and areas to go fishing. I will use this campground on my return trip. We camped at Arrowhead Campsites, Inc. in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Louisa State Park, Clermont, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2014 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice park with many miles of hiking trails with well built and maintained boardwalks and docks onto the lakes. The roads in the park are very wide with no trees. Not all the sites are full hookup. The sites have little or no shade, all are pea gravel, and very narrow but have a side section with picnic table. Our biggest issue was the level of our back-in site. It was a very steep grade from front to rear. All of the back-in sites located lake side are like this. Within 10 miles north or south is a WalMart and Publix grocery store. You can rent canoes and kayaks. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Rainbow Springs State Park, Dunnellon, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2013 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

First off the correct address to the Camp Grounds is 18185 SW 94th Street, Dunnellon, Florida, 34432. If you go to the address on the Florida state park website, it will take you to the Rainbow Springs. The campgrounds is 7 miles away from there. So if you use a GPS it is at the above address off of SW 180th Ave Rd. or 29.08683 -82.41754 The campgrounds is neat, clean and well laid out. If you are looking for privacy then the outer rings provide that. Most sites do not offer much shade, but if you travel during the winter months, then it is not an issue. Most sites are level accept sites 11, 12, 13. All sites are deep and will work for most big rigs. The sites are nice and wide even if you have a double slide out. It is full hookup and good water pressure. The majority of this park is located at the "Headsprings" Entrance 7 miles away. You will need to drive there. No hiking trails in the campgrounds. The roads in the campground are wide and paved. The sites are pea gravel and well packed. It rained one night, and no mud issues. We camped at Rainbow Springs State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Anastasia State Park, St Augustine, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2012 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for a week. We have walked/drove all the camping circles and here are our Pros and Cons. Pros: Nice Beach, small store with minimal supplies, and camping loops are paved. Each site is secluded with heavy Shade, three dump sites, ample parking at the beach, and laundry at each restroom. There is windsurf, kayak, and canoe rentals available. Cons: Sites are dirt and below road level (expect mud when it rains), bathrooms old but clean and need upgrading. One bathroom services 2 loops, and could be long walk, forty campsites for each bathroom and only three stalls in each bathroom. Many sites are very narrow and there are low tree limbs in many campsites. No trash bins in the loops, no full hookup sites. The play area for children is quite a distance from campsites. Small picnic area, near the beach. You might need electrical cord extension on some sites. Site NOT level. We camped at Anastasia State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park, Okeechobee, Florida

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

We arrived here on a Friday at approximately 11:45 and our site was not available yet. Unbeknown to us, check out is 1:00 and check in is not until 3:00. The previous campers did not leave until 1:00 on the nose. Now this would not be so bad if there was something to do. We sat in the rockers on the porch of the office and waited. Our site was 22 which is located on the equestrian camping area. The site is grassy and large but very little shade. In the summer time this could be an issue. There are sites with full shade but would not hold a large RV on the equestrian area. The biggest issue with the sites on the equestrian circle (sites 21-36) is the composite toilet only. There is one (1) unisex toilet only - no running water (no sink to wash your hands) and no shower. They claim it does not smell but I beg to differ. The family circle (sites 1-20) does have a bath house which appears to be recently built. We did not go into it to inspect. The family circle has more shaded camp sites but sites that would hold a big rig do not have shade. The nearest dumpster for trash (located at the dump station) from our site (22) was a good 3/4 mile walk. They offer no playgrounds for children. As noted by others who left reviews, the park is not near any stores. So make sure you have everything you need to camp. This parks boast about its hiking trails. There are miles and miles and miles of them. Most of the trails are in the open with only a couple locations that offer shade in the hammocks. The trails I walked are in soft sugar sand which makes walking difficult and strenuous at times. Since it is a prairie, the breeze did offer some comfort from the sun. I honestly would not recommend hiking these trails to any of my friends. They do offer a weekend motorized buggy ride at the park, and this is one reason for the soft sugar sand on the trails. As a Florida resident with only a 2 hour drive, I doubt we will return to this park. We love Florida State Parks, but this one has been a real disappointment. We camped at Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park, Cordele, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2010 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed at site #11. We arrived on Sunday and stayed 3 nights. When we arrived Sunday early afternoon, the beach on the lake was packed along with the marina. At the marina there are boat/jet ski rentals. There is also a lodge in the park. The campground is somewhat secure. Each time you enter the campground you must enter a code for the gate to open day/night. Only paying campers are allowed in the camping area. All sites will accept large rigs. There are many pull-through sites. The office does not assign you a site, once you pay, you go find one on your own although you can make reservations online. There are several sites with lake views. The sites are very clean and most are shaded. I cut one point for not having septic hookup at each site, but there is a dump station with 2 dump sites. I enjoy hiking and the two trails here are very short and boring. Thus, I took another point for lack of hiking trails. There are a few military vehicles on display, but it is obvious they are lacking in maintenance. The museum is small but interesting. I would recommend this campground for campers traveling on I-75 and boaters. It is 10 miles from I-75. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Motorhome.
