Large park sites, clean grounds, has 5% old trailers that need to go soon. Lots of no see ums, they are spraying to try and control them. Major problem is with DOGS- people seem to use extremely long leashes on their dogs, dogs are walked under your RV- Urinate on your car wheels - even saw a park employee let her dog go on a classic car wheels several times. We love dogs but people need to see the others side- I do not appreciate the constant flow of dogs all day long being led by my site - using the restroom while we eat at our patio and the downwind smell from the light post and trees is terrible. They do have a nice dog walk area but dogs go where the owners take them. This is becoming a problem at most parks . people are inconsiderate - especially here and management is no better as they allow the long leases to continue without enforcement- One lady in the office even has her husband bring the dog in there for treats which she keeps in the office -it says no dogs in any building. If you read this and have dogs please think what it looks like from someone else's side at any park you visit.

Older park located at Exit 1 on the GA/FL state line. Most guests were snowbirds for the winter. Our main comment on this park is that most residents have dogs and several were running lose which is against their rules but no one stopped them and also the excessive barking. Sites are close and most have overhanging tree limbs which makes it difficult maneuvering in and out of the sites and roads. The city of St. Marys is not far from the campground. We visited the downtown area and it was very pleasant. We visited for one night as a stopover.

Lots are sold and most owners are on their lots for the winter months. Park is extremely clean, well kept and nice manicured sites. Rest rooms and laundry room very clean. Park has nice swimming pool, hot tub and tiki bar. Planned activies and Tuesday nights dinners were for $6 or $7 and very good. There is a sewage treatment plant just outside the park and when the wind blows in the right direction, that smell is carried over to the park. Another comment is the park is only 3 1/2 miles from the beaches but can take up to 90 minutes to get there. Also when you do get there, parking is very limited and expensive. The beaches are not public friendly. You have to be in a condo or apt on the beaches to be able to fully enjoy them. A river also dumps into the Gulf which made it very murky in January but started to clear by Feb. We will not return even though it is a nice park. We were there for January and February, 2006.

The sites are grassy with a concrete pad for the picnic table. The restrooms and laundry rooms are extremely clean. Most sites can handle a 38 ft rig. The sites are very spacious. The grounds are very well kept. They do have some full time residents. Our only complaint to this park is they do not have cable tv. We will most definitely return.

Extremely nice state park. The sites are concrete with blacktop drive way and very large, we have a 40 ft 5th wheel with 4 slide outs. We had no problem backing into our site and had plenty of room on both sides for the slides. They have nice pull thru sites also. The rest rooms and laundry rooms are very clean. The staff keep the grounds well manicured. We stayed here the last 2 weeks of November and will definitely return.

The campground is extremely clean and well kept including the laundry and rest rooms. They do have Wi-Fi but did not use since we have our own wireless internet service. We are in the process of becoming full time RV'ers and used this park for 8 weeks while moving from our house to the fifth wheel. The sites are very spacious. We parked a truck and a car in the same site with the fifth wheel. The restaurant, Beefeaters, is extremely good. The prices range from $6.95 for an oversized hamburger and fries to $36.95 for Surf and Turf. We have tried numerous items on the menu and have nothing but good things to say about the food. Their speciality is prime rib and it is delicious. It is close to downtown historic St. Charles and 25 minutes to downtown St. Louis. The owners are very friendly and the staff at the restaurant are very personable and friendly. Families with small childen will find no playground equipment but a large playground is less than a quarter mile from the park. The campground is also very near the Katy Trail for bike riding and walking. We will be be back to this park in the spring, 2006.
