This is a very nice CG with 3 loops, each with 1 pull-through, and the rest back-in sites, all with EWS. The A loop is smaller, but with 7 tent sites and RV sites. Paved roads with gravel/sandy sites nicely separated with brush between. Bathhouses nice and clean with hot water showers. There is a dump with two sewers connections. A paved road goes half way to the Rainbow River with a paved path the rest of the way not for cars, so boats have to be carried or carted the rest of the short way to the paved launch, and to the wooded decked river overlook. There are rental kayaks and canoes there, and at the CG office there are wooden carts you can borrow to take your boat to the river. The Rainbow river is shallow but wide, clear with current waving bottom grasses and some fish to be seen. It is about a mile upstream to the springs, however, it requires about a 10 mile round about drive where there is an extensive flowered park with rental boats, and swimming at the springs where water flows up out of the rocky bottom. You get a free CG entry card to the up stream springs park at the CG office on arrival. Near the entry to the CG there is a trolley paved side road to the park's tubing center which you can bike to. It has a nice board walk through the woods/swamp to the tube launch. We really like this park.

Fee of $28/night, but reservation fee of $6.75. South of St. Augustine with a mile long entry paved road with brush both sides, and a walking/bike path along side, a windsurfing pavilion and a kayak/canoe rental, and a fish cleaning area. Road comes to a large parking area with two nice boardwalks to the wide sandy beach. Some slow WiFi by the parking area.The large wooded CG is to the right of the entry to the beach and has 7 paved loops along a long paved road. Bring a bike for it is long distances to walk. The best loop for RV is the first Coquina loop, as these sites were more level and more uniformly wider. All sites EW and dirt surface. Biking along the other loops I saw very variable sites; many very unlevel, narrow, overhanging limbs, etc., so a RV may or not get an appropriate site for its size. There is thick brush between the ends of the loops and the Salt Run that's by the entry road, so to get to the beach its a long way to walk to the beach area. There is a dump at the entry to the CG with 3 wide parallel dumps.

Thirty eight miles from park entry to CG and about 10 miles further from Homestead for fuel, food, and another return trip making about a hundred miles, so fuel up and food up before starting for park. Reservations possible though often all taken. There is gas and diesel at the park store with diesel $4.10/gallon. A small nature center at the CG and a larger one at the park entry. There are rental canoes and kayaks, and a $37/person boat tour up the Buttonwood canal to a lake. This canal replaced a long coastal boat trip to the Bear lake area, and the boat tour guide was excellent with his information and the wild live along the canal. The CG is large with grassy areas for tents, and long but narrow pull through paved RV sites, some with electricity in the T section, and none in the A and B loop. The C loop is not open with overgrown grass. There is a entry sewer dump, and water connections at the bathhouses. A bathhouse in the A or B loop has solar water panel heaters for a hot shower. There is a large walk in tent grass area near the picnic and amphitheater area that was flooded during our visit, and there is a paved wood land path from the amphitheater to the Flamingo visitor center. The nearby Eco Pond has a grass path around it for nature viewing. There were large numbers of buzzards "camping " in the CG and there were interesting to see. Do bring a bike as this is a large CG park and a bike is a great way to see more.

Huge CG with crammed together paved narrow sites with EWS, about 40 feet long with big A RVs filling them and tow cars parked sideways in the paved roads. A trolley vehicle goes about the complex and can be called to pick you up. One bathhouse near the entrance with 3 showers and toilets in the men and womens sections. The narrow grassed sections between sites were rather unkept. The real draw for the CG is to look at new or used RVs, or to attend a rally. The rally building, pool, the new store and their sales building are all very nice and there are over a hundred service bays for repairs. They have some nice teaching sessions, and you get a free morning paper, and free breakfast and limited lunch. There is frequent trash pickups at site, and a real plus is every employee we talked to were pleasant and helpful. Management must have a top priority on this and it is certainly good business and welcomed. The draw for this is not the CG and you would need to be self contained for bath and toilet.

Three loops with 7 pull throughs, and 38 back in sites all wide most with some bushes between. The surface was dirt-sand-gravel. Some sites with wooden borders. Paved roads. The price was $22 with tax/nite, but reservations was $6.70 so cost was $28.70/nite. It is a nice CG per se, and the real draw is the lovely Tall Carillon with its tubular bells that are played automatically through out the day. Exhibits show the history of Stephen Foster, his songs, the resort town of White Springs, the spring house, the construction of the carillon and the bells and a museum with old pianos, paintings, and dioramas. There is a large gift shop with musical instruments, in season craft shops, and monthly events. Canoes are rented to use on the Suwannee river and extensive hiking trails. A great place to visit.

South Bay RV is a Palm Beach county CG at the SE of Lake Okeechobee just west of Belle Glade with easy access. It is large with moderate spacing between paved sites and paved roads with grass and some trees between sites. Two large loops all back in sites. There is a Shiner Lake between the loops with a walking path about it, part paved, part not paved. The bath house was clean and had a screened in laundry at the entrance. One playground. Price/nite was $25 plus tax for $29. Lots of long stay big A RVs. An exceptionally class act RV park.

I have stayed at about 200 CGs in the last 4 years, and I think this is the best CG ever. COE CGs are usually great, and this one was the best so far. Along the Cumberland River Cheatham Lake, Lock A, there is a 2 mile paved road with spaced trees, many with labels of kind, many concrete picnic tables, at least 3 boat ramps, the dam, locks, and power house, 3 playgrounds, well mowed grass verges. The sites are widely separated mostly and paved for RVs, with some large well graveled tent sites along the river bank. A second RV row is back from the river side sites but some are not real level. Bath houses very clean. Cost was $11.50/nite with America the Beautiful Senior card. The road in is narrow, windy, and some steep hills. Saw only one big A RV there. About 20 miles NW of Nashville off of state highway 12.33.

A beautiful well maintained KY state park on top of a high bluff with a wide far off view of the meantering Tennessee River, barges, forest. The Park is vast with civil war trenches, museum and artifacts, playground, etc. Roads and sites all paved with EW, and some with S also. Negative almost all are unlevel and need lots of levelers. Well spaced with lots of trees for most sites. $18 for seniors. It is isolated and reached by small winding roads. Good job Kentucky except you didn't level the sites.

Date of Stay:

Sites well spread, with narrow paved sites, with EW at back side of site. Many trees. Unfortunately most sites are somewhat unlevel front to back, side to side or both because the site paving conforms to the slope of the mildly rolling hill side. I had one of the very few really level sites. Clean and large bath houses x 2. A free shuttle will take you by a back road to the Horse park with its exhibits, horse shows and the vast well done and informative museum of the horses. It is $12 per person for a discounted entry to the horse park itself. $27 senior CG /nite. I downgraded because of the almost all unlevel sites. At the time of making the CG a bulldozer could have easily leveled the sites. A common error in many CGs.

A vast well maintained city park by Lima reservoir for boating. A hill for sledding, a smaller lake for swimming, an arboretum, well paved campground roads, level paved wide sites with a gravel border, 30 and 50 amps, water between two sites, a very clean tiled bathhouse with hot water. Lots of bike and walking paths. One rv dump. Really the nicest CG I have ever seen. $20 sr. rate.

Date of Stay:

Price $20 plus $5 non-Nebraska daily state park entry fee for $25. Asphalt roads and sites, sites almost level with 30 amp electricity at my back-in site. Other sites side of the road pull throughs. immaculate kept lush grass between widely spaced sites withh many large-medium sized trees. A play ground, dump and potable water fill. A lake on one side and a section of the Platte river flowing by on the back side. Has fire rings and tables. One central bathhouse with toilets, sinks and showers. A really nice CG. Only deficiency is the variable not quite level sites helped by various leveling methods.

Date of Stay:

Stayed in a 25 foot motorhome in the H section and my comments are based on this only. Bathhouses were clean with toilet, sink, and a great stick your hands in the slot hand blower dryer. The CG is on a slope with several loops and tarmac paved roads and sites. Sites are varied back end singles and double, and by the road pull throughs. Only a rare few are level. Most are mildly to badly un-level front to back and side ways. Many are very short. There were all sorts of leveling device attempts by campers trying to level their campers. Many campers had tents and canopies beside the paved sites. There were several non threaded faucets in the CG by the bathhouses. The main attraction for this CG is of course Yellowstone itself. So I rate this CG as only average for its own features. We actually were by luck assigned to an only sightly un-level site. This H section is heavily wooded and beautiful as a woodland. If there were the money to redo the CG, bulldozing new level and adequately sized sites would really make this a nice CG.

A real find. No charge, but donation appreciated city park on the down sloop between the Blooser air field and the highway south of Concordia with a north and south entrance, a dump station at the north entry. Sign in name, home town, site number on provided envelope and enclose donation if you wish (I did $15 and worth it.) Tarmac CG roads and mostly level concrete pads of various lengths with thick green grass between. Some 30 and 50 amp posts, some 30 amp only between sites and some with water spigots shared. Bath house with wash basin, toilets; no showers. Can walk up hill to the air field; no planes there now. There is an extensive Frisbee golf "course " by the CG. Four back in sites, rest pull throughs. Fourteen sites, a fifteenth very short site has actually got a trash dump in it. Very clean and beautiful CG, and a real credit to the town providing this Air Port Park CG.

Overnighted in the eastern B section along the river with a gorgious view with lots of trees, paved sites and roads. The western A section has the more western half view blocked by an extensive boat storage building and boat moorings. The eastern section of A has those nice river views. There are also more inland a C,D, E,F sections that are some reservable, some not. Many sites are level, some not quite. Well kept and clean park. $13 with senior America the beautiful pass. Good for biking about. This is really one of the best COE CGs I have camped at. There are 3 dump stations, one of which is presently taped off.

Date of Stay:

Like most COE CGs, very nice. Sr rate of $13, well paved roads, widely spaced huge gravel-sand sites with nice table and mostly level. Right on the lake views. Bathhouse clean. Wooded. The CG follows the hills about the lakeshore and is up and down hilly so not good for biking or elderly walkers. Several miles to the Thurmond dam and COE vistor centers with history of the building of the dam and its value to the area in flood control, recreations, and electrical power. The entire Thurmond lake area has an incredible number of recreational opportunities; like 13 COE CGs, 6 state parks, 7 county parks, 3 US Forest Serevice, and 6 marinas, plus 23 day use and boat ramp areas.
