Gunter Hill COE, Montgomery, Alabama

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a tough campground to rate. There are aspects of it that place it as a 9 or 10 and other aspects that place it at a 2-4. Here it goes. There are two loops in this campground. One loop is full hook ups and pretty new. The other loop are water/electric and much older. We were in the older loop. There are many very large sites in both loops. Many of them overlook the river which you can see when the leaves are down. All have picnic tables, fire rings and places to hang lanterns. The exterior sites are all easy to get into even for large rigs. The newer loop are gigantic sites with some of the sites being 200-250 feet long. They are all paved and many overlook the river. The restrooms in the older loop are very run down. The doors to the stalls were broken or would not close. The mirrors are awful and the faucets are corroded. The trash container is up near the exit. The restrooms in the new side are about the same in structure but they are much newer and in good repair. You need to travel 15-20 minutes to get to grocery stores and restaurants. This is a convenient campground to explore Montgomery but there really isn't anything to do at the campground itself unless you have a boat. If we come back we would stay in the newer side which probably rates a 8 or 9. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Vist the Maya Lin Civil Rights Memorial in downtown Montgomery. See the outside monument and go into the museum. It is well worth your time and the $2 fee. We spent about 90 minutes here. Also St. Peter's Catholic Church is beautiful. Detailed woodwork, stained glass windows, ceilings. Not sure if they have this every Sunday but the 10:30 Mass we went to they had a wonderful gathering in their center.

Fort Pickens Campground, Pensacola, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

The setting for this campground is fantastic. You are a 5-10 minute walk to the beach and there are miles of white sand everywhere. The restrooms are clean and nice. The sites are nice but many of them are close together and none of them have much, if any privacy. We were in a 33 ft camper and had to be very careful about the site we choose. If you have a senior pass, this is by far the most economical and pretty campsite you will get by the ocean. There is one drawback. They will evacuate the campground if it is windy or rainy enough to cause the ocean to come over the road. This happened while we here, and it had happened a few weeks before we got here. There were no other options open in the area so we only had about 40% of our time we could be here. Be prepared for a back up option if you go, because this happens somewhat routinely. Lot spacing was nearby with some shade. Site surface was sand and featured a fire ring and picnic table. We camped at Fort Pickens Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

The very best key lime pie can be had at Flounders Chowder House. The price is $8 for what ends up being the equivalent of 3 pieces. We went back and carried out three different time. It was heavenly. Put a piece in the freezer and it is even better.

Manatee Springs State Park, Chiefland, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed 6 nights at Manatee Springs State Park. At first we were a bit nervous pulling into the camping area because the roads were narrow and uneven and it looked like tight maneuvering for a 33 ft fifth wheel. But when we actually had a better look at the sites, how they were set up and how to approach we were pleasantly surprised that they were easy to get in. There are some roots in the camping pad area, but they did not bother us. The camping, the trails and the boardwalk are all within easy walking distance and we had enough to do to spend most of our time exploring the parks and just resting in our zero gravity chairs. At night the stars are tremendous. The board walk is very nice and we walked it during the day and at night to see the stars. If you get up early and go to the springs ( 10 minute easy walk) you can see manatees at the springs.

The restrooms are a bit old but they are clean and well maintained. The showers are a bit cramped but there is a small sitting area. I found a green frog attached to my shower curtain which startled me but overall it met my minimum criteria. We did get wifi but it was weak (Verizon); enough to power my hotspot (for some of the day), but only if I put my phone in a certain area of the camper. There is free wifi at the concession area which is a 5-10 minute walk from any of the campsites.

There are also nice drives to several wild life reserves within easy driving. The only thing that got us down a bit around this part of Florida was the many confederate flags we saw hanging in various home lawns and even at several businesses. This made me uncomfortable. We camped at Manatee Springs State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bill's Bar-b-que, about 5 miles away has the very best beef sandwich, take a hike at night out on the boardwalk to the end to see the stars. Tremendous view of sky.

Twin Oaks RV Park & Campground, Elko, Georgia

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

We only stayed for overnight but I was very impressed with this campground. People were friendly and the facilities were a cut above what you find in most campgrounds. There was a hot tub that was open 24/7, nice little store and a lot of landscaping that just made this campground enjoyable. Nice area to walk our dogs and campsite was easy to get in and get out. Lot spacing was nearby with some shade. We camped at Twin Oaks RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Chiswell RV Park, Max Meadows, Virginia

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

We got there very late and had no problem finding it and finding a site. We arrived after the office closed and they said to just pull in and find a place. We pulled in and found a nice pull through site next to rest rooms. Very easy to pull in and hook up. Restrooms were very clean and warm ( it was 10 degrees outside). The location is great. I am giving it a nine because of the ease of getting in and setting up, clean restrooms, and reservations went off without an issue. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Ochlockonee River State Park, Sopchoppy, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2014 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Fabulous campground. Very small, about 30 sites and those 30 sites had the park to themselves in March. The sites are simply wonderful. They are all different with many of them being immense. There were about 10 sites which were not directly on the river, but you could see the river from your site when you stood up. Paths went directly to the river and a wonderful trail located up and down the river. White squirrels were there and the site itself is very well kept and restrooms spotless. The park has a number of other walking trails with lots of birds. Each site had a nice campfire, picnic table and grill and many had posts and a clothesline to hang wet clothes. There were canoe and kayak rentals. This campground is pretty isolated but it is 20-25 minutes from a great BBQ and seafood restaurant and 45 minutes form St. Marks Wildlife Visitor center. We will be back again. Loved it.( one of our top 10 campsites). Be careful with the campsites and look at pictures because a few of these sites you could not get a camper in because of trees. We camped at Ochlockonee River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I love this campground. Once you enter the park you are in a different world. the campground is nice with big sites but small and tight pads. Once you are in your site it is great but the roads are narrow and it makes backing in very difficult without going off on the grass and that might be OK but it had rained and we made very big ruts. We have a 33 ft fifth wheel and got a site that was for 40 feet . But the way the trees and the road was set up it took my husband about 20 minutes to finally get the camper in the way we wanted it to. We barely were able to fit our truck in without it being on grass which is not allowed. There are sites where this would not be as much of a problem but it is hard to see which ones are OK and which ones would be an issue. In general if there are trees around your site, it will be difficult with anything over 30 feet. The bathrooms were great except on Saturday when there were many kids at the camp. The reason I rate this camp so high is that it has a vast area to walk and ride a bike that is flat and beautiful. It is very easy to drive to the beach and set up for the day. They do not allow pets on the beach but they do on the nature trails. The sunsets were beautiful. Lots of birds and armadillos. We were out in nature and quiet, but only 10-15 minutes away from a number of restaurants and shopping areas. It was great. We will be back again for even longer. We camped at Fort Pickens Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Anita State Park, Anita, Iowa

Date of Stay: September, 2013 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is about 5 miles from the expressway and easy to get to. We stayed in site 143 which was on the lake and very near the restrooms (near camphost). We did not want to unhook so we needed a site that was about 50 feet long and this worked fine (was about 55-60 feet). The restrooms are in very good shape and very clean. The campsites are in terraces overlooking the lake. Each terrace is one way and if you want to get to a different terrace you need to go completely out of campground and then back in. The bottom terrace by the lake appears to have the longest sites and since we arrived in an off season there were many sites to choose from. We selected on near the restroom. There were 3 different sites, electric, full and non electric. You can reserve a particular site if you do so 2 days ahead of time which I recommend. Otherwise, you pick up a registration card and go find a site that is not occupied or reserved and fill out the card and put money in an envelope and drop it off with the camp host or back at the registration site. This system is a bit inconvenient for a single night, but since the camp host took the filled out card and we were right next to them it worked ok. All the sites are back in that we could see and the higher terraces were a little tight if you are not used to backing a large rig in. It was a beautiful and very quiet camp site. We camped at Lake Anita State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Mountain Acres Campground, Lewistown, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Clean restrooms and easy access to site that was clean and sufficient in size. No picnic table at our site. We were there for the cowboy poetry gathering and this was a very convenient place to stay and I would stay here again. A number of the sites looked like permanent residents but not in a bad sort of way. They seemed to be always cleaning up the bathrooms which was great for us. Site is gravel with some patches of grass and a few trees but it was very well kept. The only thing that did not seem as well kept is the office where you check in but that really did not impact our stay. We camped at Mountain Acres Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

St. Mary / East Glacier KOA, St Mary, Montana

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $75.00
Overall Rating:      

We had a back up site. It backed up to the dog area and as such had unobstructed views of the mountains from the back. It was very nice. Nice picnic table and fire-pit but it was blowing wind so much we did not use much. We were there for 11 nights and it is a great location for access to Many Glacier and up to Logan's Pass and even over to Two Medicine. The food is better in East Glacier but there were several decent restaurants around. Good restrooms and great store that is open until 11 pm. Friendly helpful people . I wish it was a bit wider but honestly all of these western mountain sites seem narrow. Great Verizon signal. Did not use their WiFi system since I had my own hotspot but I heard a lot of people were having trouble with it. We camped at St. Mary / East Glacier KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

A nice campground: easy to pull in. The bathrooms clean but they are unisex. I hate unisex as a women, because they are never as clean and well kept up as the women's restrooms are, when they are just women's restrooms. We camped at Grand Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake, Estes Park, Colorado

Date of Stay: July, 2012 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

I would always stay at this campground when I am in Estes Park for 3 reasons. 1) Location is outstanding to get into park and into town and to a store. 2) Fantastic views of the mountains, and 3) One of the cleanest bathrooms you are going to find in campgrounds. There are some negatives but we ignored or mitigated them. The negatives are. a) Very impatient and rude man that helps you to your site. b) Tight sites to get into, and c) Gravel roads that need a bit of work. However we picked a site at the end of row which helped us deal with the tight sites. We camped at Estes Park Campground at Marys Lake in a Fifth Wheel.
