Cave-in-Rock State Park, Cave-In-Rock, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2009 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Nice state park. Only electric hook-ups. No water or sewer, although there is a dumpstation with freshwater available. Most campsites are 100 feet or more apart, so plenty of room and plenty of shade. Lots of hills that are fun to ride bikes down and less fun to ride back up. There are picnic tables on a ridge overlooking the river, and there is a river taxi that runs up and down the river if you would like to have a look. Great place to spend a weekend. We camped at Cave-in-Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Mammoth Cave, Cave City, Kentucky

Date of Stay: October, 2007 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Facilities are in pretty rough shape. Our site didn't have grass, only dirt. Frankly, the only reason to stay here during the fall is for the kid's activities on the weekends, otherwise I'm sure there are better campgrounds. The game room is top notch. The Halloween weekends during October are second to none. This was our third trip for the Halloween weekends, and we had a blast again.

Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga, Rossville, Georgia

Date of Stay: September, 2007 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We called on the Thursday before Labor Day to get a reservation for the weekend. They said I would be in the area normally reserved for monthly rentals so I wouldn't have cable or a fire ring. Site was fine. I've got a 34' 5the wheel with slides on both sides, and had no problem fitting between other similar sized rigs. I've stayed in much more narrow sites at a few older KOA's. It's only about a 10 minute drive to the aquarium, Incline, Rock City, or Ruby Falls. The campground is just a mile from Lake Winnie. The pool was clean, and the restrooms were among the absolute cleanest I've seen at a campground, and this was on a holiday weekend, with the campground at or near capacity. Campground is convenient to I-75 and I-24. We would probably stay here again if we are in the Chattanooga area. We camped at Holiday Travel Park of Chattanooga in a Fifth Wheel.

Bowling Green KOA, Bowling Green, Kentucky

Date of Stay: May, 2007 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Real nice KOA. We stayed here over Memorial day weekend 2007. The campground was at capacity. The online description of my site said it was appropriate for a van or popup, but the campground hosts assured me my 5th wheel would fit into the site. They were right. It was a pull through site with full hook-ups at least 60 feet long. I don't know why the online description would suggest it for a van or pop up. I did see a couple rows of sites that were pretty small and set aside for tents or pop ups, but probably 70 percent of their sites are pull-through and could accommodate any size RV. They had mini-golf, paddle boats, fishing, outdoor movie theater, and a swimming pool. I was camping with three nine-year-old girls, so the noise from the highway was not an issue for me. One of the nicest KOAs we have stayed at. The campground is really close to the Lost River underground boat tours, Corvette Museum, and about 15 minutes to Beech Bend Park. I'm guessing about 30-40 minutes to Cave City or Mammoth Cave, but I didn't drive it. We camped at Bowling Green KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Columbus-Belmont State Park, Columbus, Kentucky

Date of Stay: April, 2007 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We spent the weekend here with our 9 year old daughter. This is a very beautiful campground. Campsites are mostly shaded with beautiful old oak trees. A confederate trench left from the Civil War is located right behind campsites 23 and 24. I think campsites 24 thru 30 have the prettiest view from atop the bluff overlooking the Mississippi river. It is a wonderful quiet campground to spend the weekend relaxing. It is not exactly action packed, and there is not much to do locally near the campground either. This is really the only reason I didn't rate the campground higher. I would note that if you are the type of person who freaks out when someone walks through your site, do not stay here! The campground is arranged out in a circle with the office, playground, and restrooms in the center. There is no way to get to any of these facilities except to walk through a campsite. You cannot view the bluff overlooking the river without walking through some other campsites. Everyone was very friendly when I visited. The staff was nice. Reservations are available online. Sites were paved with electric and water. Dumpstation was available. Firewood was for sale at the office for $2 an armload. Washers and dryers were located in the office. Mini golf was closed while we visited. Really beautiful and underused little park. We camped at Columbus-Belmont State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bryn Mawr Ocean Resort, St Augustine Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2006 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

Bryn Mawr is one of those unique situations where a loop hole in a local zoning law allows a trailer park to be built next to the ocean. Probably eighty percent of the campground consists of permanent park-model trailers. Only the sites closest to the beach and a few other's scattered throughout the campground are available to traveling campers. That being said, maintenance and overall grounds keeping are a lacking a little. The big draw here is, of course, you can camp on the beach, with full hookups, and cable. Not to shabby. Roads within the campground are sand or dirt, but the sites were level and paved, and many feature picnic shelters or decks, which is nice, because there is no shade anywhere. Regarding the staff: We stayed here 4 years ago, and the special of the day was indifference. This time though, everyone was courteous and cordial, a definite improvement. Pool was huge and largely empty of other people during our visit. If you want to camp oceanfront in St. Augustine, this campground is the one. We camped at Bryn Mawr Ocean Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort & Campground, Lake Buena Vista, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2006 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This was our second visit here. The paved bike trails are nice. The campground is huge. A person can use the inter-campground busses to get from location to another, but we have found bicycles work best for us. Because of it's size, the campground rents golf carts. They can be a kind of a bother in such large quantities. The area near the beach is practically overflowing with parked golf carts. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Fort Wilderness.

Beech Bend Campground, Bowling Green, Kentucky

Date of Stay: July, 2006 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

If you are 70 and looking for a nice quiet place to spend the summer, keep looking. If you go through the roof every time a child walks through your campsite, keep driving. If you've got kids, especially if you have noisy kids, and you want to take them to an amusement park and camp nearby, this is the place. Chances are if you have children, you know children are noisy. Amusement parks and race tracks are noisy as well. The good news is that since the shade is scarce, you'll have to run the air conditioning, so you won't hear most of noise. It's a great park for what it is; a campground attatched to an amusement park. Expect children on all-terrain vehicles, golf carts, motorcycles, and bicycles. We had a great time. Beech Bend is one of the few privately owned amusement parks left anywhere. The amusement park is well maintained, and has some of the nicest staff anywhere. The best part is you can camp next door at their campground. We camped at Beech Bend Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Paris Landing / Kentucky Lake KOA, Buchanan, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2006 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice clean family oriented park. We had my daughter's birthday party here. The folks who run the campground could not have been nicer or more accommodating. They have a huge field for campers with pets. They also have a small arcade room and a pool for kids. The only downside is that, as with most older KOA's, is that the sites are rather narrow. The park wasn't full when we camped so it wasn't a problem. We will definitely return to Paris Landing KOA. We camped at Paris Landing / Kentucky Lake KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Mammoth Cave, Cave City, Kentucky

Date of Stay: October, 2005 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We had a really good time here over Halloween with our 8 year old daughter. The camp is a little run down. The roads are rough and washed out. Most of the camp sites are not level. Some are not even close to level. That is however, the sort of thing an adult would notice. The staff was all very friendly and helpful. My daughter had a marvelous time. There were numerous activities, some were geared for younger kids, and some for older (karaoke). We will probably return here next halloween just for the activities offered for children, but not for the facilities. They are offering WiFi internet now, but our campsite was deep in a pit, and I could not get a strong enough signal to stay online. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park Mammoth Cave in a Travel Trailer.
