This campground is under new ownership. The old name was Oak and Pines. The new name as of this weekend is the Lake City RV Resort. I'm laughing as I type this. We're finishing up a multi month cross country trip and this is absolutely the worst campground we've stayed in. It's a dump. And I think we're the only people stupid enough to stop... The campground is empty. They used to take Passport America but the new owners are not. It would be a rip off at 50% of the $35 we paid. The wifi is non existent and after a brief shower there is standing water everywhere. Just getting into the office the water was over my shoes. It's so close to I-10 that I can read license plate numbers as cars go by. You're right.... I don't know why I stayed except we were tired and ready to get off the road. How this place has the rating it has is beyond me. This is the first time that checking ratings here has failed me.

Price reflects Good Sam discount for a FHU pull through. I called and made a reservation. They only accept cash or check. When I arrived no one was in the office and info on the door about reservations was for the previous day. I did arrive early in the day, just before noon. I pulled into site 14 which was a long pull through. I got satellite, the utilities were good and I left early the next morning. Comments about having to make a U-turn on 49 if heading south are correct. I was given directions how to avoid that turn but I guess I screwed up and had to make the U-turn. Leaving, the U-turn is easier. Six miles north is a restaurant named Berry's and should not be missed. Best catfish I've ever eaten.

Easy access from I-20. We stopped for an overnight in FHU, 50 amp, pull through site and because of the park and Wal--Mart, etc, in the area we decided to stay an extra night. We're in B2 and all is good. The power is fine, I can get satellite and lots of over the air TV. Wi-fi is fast with no problems. The pull through was not long enough to leave the car connected. Most of the park is semi/permanent but the park is quiet and neat. The park is grass, dirt and gravel. The park staff/owners? are accomdating and pleasant. For us it's a perfect stop while traveling.

Pleasant office staff and easy to make reservation. Coming from Colorado Springs it was in the right place for us to stop. Not much else in the area. We had a long pull through, full hook up. The utilities were good. Could be muddy in wet weather. All sites look like they get satellite. No cable but great wi-fi. My Sprint hot spot did not have signal. My Verizon phone did connect to data. Only got two over the air TV channels. Easy access from 64. Would stay again if in the area.

We reserved 1 night and when we arrived about noon, there was a list on the door showing the CG was full and no one was present in the office. I parked in the site I was told was reserved for me because it was empty. It is a nicely laid out campground, very convenient to I-80. We decided to stay an extra day and I filled out the registration form that is in a box on the office door and paid for the two days. The next day the office was open briefly in the morning but closed after a short time and another list was posted showing that the site I was in was available for drive-ups that day. I tried to call the reservation number but no answer. I finally went to the Cabella store and spoke to someone who said the office should be open and don't worry about the list. The Wi-Fi was not working so I inquired and was told it had been broke for some time but it had been reported to the cable company. I really like this campground, but it seems to be run a little loosey, goosey and is a little pricey.

Comments about the new owners working hard to improve the campground are spot on. Very pleasant folks. The $34 rate reflects price paid after Good Sam's discount for a spacious water/electric pull through site. Very convenient to I-80 and road noise was not a problem. I was led to my site and the owner made sure all was well before he left. I asked for a site that could receive satellite and I got one. I'd stay again if in the area.

This was a good overnight stop with FHU's. Gas station, convenience store and small food service grill on site. Hamburger's were very good. Easy access from I80. Good over the air TV reception as well as satillite. Would stay again if in the area.

We stopped for a one night stay and it was perfect for us. I called prior to arriving and the person I dealt with was professional and answered all my questions. It was easy access from I-80. Checking in for not only easy but pleasant because of the employees. I didn't want to unhook the toad, wanted 50 amp full h/u and a site that I could get satellite. I got it all at a great price. I could not get over the air TV, so no local weather but overall this park is a keeper. You won't be disappointed.

I can't remember when we've stayed in a nicer campground. I know we've never stayed in a nicer Passport America campground. The sites are all pull through and very level. The landscaping is great with a number of gazebos. Everything looks either new or newly renovated. The gentleman I spoke to and registered with was friendly, polite and didn't make you feel like a cheapskate for using PPA. This campground is less than two miles off I95 and is a must see even if the Passport Am rate is NOT available.

The other reviewer (July 2012) wrote an accurate review of this campground. It's only 3 miles The other reviewer (July 2012) wrote an accurate review of this campground. It's only 3 miles from I95 exit 68. It's easy in and easy out. It is well maintained and a great spot to get off the road for a night or two. The price is fantastic. We've stayed at New Green Acres 10 miles south on I95 and it was double the price and not near as nice. The comment about the lady owner being very nice and helpful was right on the money. An older gentleman who was working on a tractor when we got here got me parked and was very friendly. I suspect most travelers don't know about this place, try it you'll like it

My review is based on a one night stop. From that perspective this a jewel. It is close to I-40, there is a Love's Travel stop just as you get off I-40 so if you're like me you can start the next day with a full tank. The campground's staff was friendly and helpful. the pull through site I had was large and level. They lead you to your site and everything worked the way it should. It's a Passport America park and from our experience it's one of the best.

A good spot to get off the road for a night, especially if you like the sound of trains. Fairly easy in and out from I-40. The gravel sites are just long enough so you don't have to unhook your toad. Cable TV was good and the price was great. Nightly rate reflects 50 amp with Good Sam discount. Quite a few long term residents. Would stay again.

A nice small campground right on US-95. The manager met us as we pulled in and welcomed us to the park. Check in was quick. We had a 50 amp pull-through and the gravel site was level. There is no cable and the Wi-Fi didn't seem to work. I did not call the office to ask about it. The night rate will increase on Sept 15 to $30 for a 50 amp site. Would stay again if in the area. Very easy in and out.

This park has everything we needed for an overnight stay while passing through the area. We're in a full hookup pull through, with cable and the roof top satellite dome locked on. I picked this park after reading reviews here and called them. The person I spoke to very helpful and reserved a long pull through for me so I didn't have to unhook the car. The site is long, level and gravel. As others mentioned, I can see projects underway but uncompleted on the grounds. If you need an "overnight" you won't be disappointed.

This is a very nice campground with helpful, friendly staff. We're in a back in, premium site. I'm not sure where the thirty dollar rate came from mentioned in other reviews. Premium sites are $42 a night and regular sites are $38 a night. The main difference I see is that premium sites are concrete and a little wider than the black top regular sites. They also have some pull throughs. Everything about the campground is well maintained. It has good cable TV and fast Wi-Fi. Today is Saturday and they prepared a free breakfast for everyone. Bacon, eggs, sausage, pancakes, juice and coffee. A real nice touch. Would stay here again if in the area.
