Most of the sites in this campground are far from level, although a few level ones can be found. Fire ants are also a problem. There is good walking and bicycling. Verizon connectivity is good. We would rate the campground higher, but the shower rooms were unusable; they were heavily mildewed and had a scummy feel to them, although there was no visible dirt. We do not intend to stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This campground has very few level or nearly level sites, and generally has a very run-down feel. The shower rooms are unheated, with single-push-button controls. We would stay here again only after any other alternatives within two hours' drive have been found to be worse.

This is one of the nicest state park campgrounds we have stayed in. Many of the sites are level or nearly so, and the separation between sites is very good. The park offers two very pleasant hiking trails, as well as access to the bayou and all its water sports. There is no Wi-Fi, but Verizon coverage was good. We definitely will stay here again, probably for several days.

Date of Stay:

For a KOA, this park is unimpressive (although the price is lower than many other KOA's). Perimeter sites are un-level and not well-developed. There is Wi-Fi and cable, and Verizon coverage is good. The campground also has a lighted, fancy miniature golf course. Be aware that there is a paper mill in the area, so when the wind is from the wrong direction it can be smelly (we had a north wind during our stay, and there was no odor).

Date of Stay:

This is a good campground with pleasant hiking (and swimming, in the naturally-heated spring). Sites in Hickory Loop are larger and a bit better-maintained, and the shower room there is considerably better than the one in Magnolia Loop (which is only screened in and has no heat). The sites in Magnolia Loop are sandy, and a bit narrow. There is no Wi-Fi, but Verizon coverage is adequate.

Date of Stay:

This is an unimpressive campground at first glance, largely because the last road into the sites is narrow and dirt, but it is pleasant once you get settled. Most of the sites are also dirt, but they have a fair amount of separation. There is excellent walking and bicycling, and the park includes an 1800s plantation house (moved from elsewhere). Verizon is available, but weak. We definitely will visit again. However, the park is not easily accessible from I-10, so we will come in from the south side.

Date of Stay:

This campground offers paved sites, including some pull-throughs, and some back-ins on the water. All are full hookups. The only negative aspect was the showers, which were clean but lacked hot water. The park uses the push-button style shower, which does not allow for changing temperature, and ours was too cool. In addition, the lights in the bathroom were on a motion sensor which was near the door; once you were in a toilet stall, the light went out, which was a bit bothersome at night. Due to the shower problems, we would camp here again only if we needed a decent site for the night and the distance of travel worked out well.

This is an excellent campground overlooking the Mississippi River. We were able to sit in our RV and watch the tugs push barges up and down the river. The Vidalia Landing River Walk is very nice. Sites are level, although very close together. Except for a few gravel back-in sites, all are pull-throughs. The shower rooms are old, but clean and very functional. The campground has good Wi-Fi, and cable (although we did not hook up to the cable). Discounts include Passport America (50%), Escapees (15%), and Good Sam (10%).

This is a very pleasant campground, with mostly level sites and plenty of good hiking (and canoeing, if desired). There is no Wi-Fi, but Verizon reception is good. The only negative factor is that you have to visit the park headquarters on the south side of the highway before you can camp on the north side, which adds time and could be bothersome for a long rig.

This is a relatively small Thousand Trails park, but is very nice. Management obviously has put considerable money into maintenance and painting since our last visit a few months ago. The grounds are well-maintained, and the showers are very clean. Sites are large and relatively well-separated, especially in the loop nearest the river. Although there is no local Wi-Fi, Verizon connectivity is very good. The price noted is for non-members, who are now welcome at all Thousand Trails parks on a space-available basis.

Date of Stay:

This park has well-separated sites, some of which are not too level. The Live Oak campground is all 30/50 amps and costs $25 per night; the Plateau campground is 30 amps and costs $20. There is very good walking and bicycling. Shower water was hot and abundant, but the showers are only semi-private.

Date of Stay:

We stayed in the Sagebrush campground, which is the first one after reaching the bottom of the canyon. The sites are fairly well-separated, and not too far from level. This campground is close to the excellent CCC trail to the museum at the top of the rim. Good biking is available through the 5-mile-long park, but there is quite a bit of traffic along the road (as well as 6 water crossings, all but one of which was dry when we were there). The only negative was the large number of flies.

Date of Stay:

The sites were very unlevel. The water in the men's shower was only warm, and in the women's it was not even that. There was a hose but no water at the dump station. Overall, this was not a pleasant stop, and we would not plan on staying here again unless necessary.

Date of Stay:

The campground is quite pretty, although there is more dirt and pine needles than grass. The sites are unlevel, and only five have electricity. There is very little privacy between them. The non-electric sites have more separation and privacy. There are no facilities other than pit toilets; the one in the electrical section was very smelly, but the one in the non-electric was nicer; those sites are only $10. Excellent hiking, and fishing for those who are interested. We would have preferred to stay in the San Antonio Creek Campground, but it was closed for maintenance.

Date of Stay:

Very nice campground with widely-spaced sites, numerous trees, and mostly level pads. The shower rooms are modern and clean, with somewhat strange fixtures; the hot water is not adjustable. There are very good hiking trails. The campground is six miles from the highway, but the road is fine, with no potholes or bumps. Verizon connectivity is good. We will definitely stay here again if it fits our travel plans.
