Diamond Caverns RV Resort and Golf, Park City, Kentucky

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This is an adequate rv park. It is a 1000 Trails park and I accessed it with P.A. This park was the probably the flower of 1970 parks. But in the last 40+ years it has become a bit wilted. Roads: Are gravel and in good shape and easy to get around on. In fact they were applying new gravel while we were there. Sites are gravel with a very tired picnic tables and a fire ring. The sites are pretty close together but not awning to awning. Level sites are there but they are few and and some are rather extremely out of level. We were in site 401 and it was fine. I saw many rv's with one set of wheels off the ground and lots of blocking used to get level. The showers are about the size you find in an average rv. They are very clean and well maintained with good pressure and hot water. This park is convenient to the multitude of caves in the area and is a 30-40 min. drive to Bowling Green in Interstate. They have Wifi at a cost and we didn't try it. Verizon phone and Mifi worked fine. The host and check in folks were all very helpful and friendly. They not only led me to my site they had me jump in the golf cart and ran around the park so I could pick one that I liked. Grocery stores and supplies are about 15-20 mins away. As I said this is an aging park that has been pretty well maintained. If we came back to the area we'd stay here again as long as we got a good discount. We camped at Diamond Caverns RV Resort and Golf in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Close to all the caves. Note that Mammoth Cave is a National Park for a reason. I would suggest that money invested in the various different tours they have of the Mammoth Park Caves is better spent than going to the other private caves in the area. The Corvette Museum in Bowling Green is interesting and if they have the plant open for tours it would probably be pretty interesting. It was closed for retooling when we were here.

McFarland Park Campground, Florence, Alabama

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

Roads: Paved and easy to get around on. Sites WES 20,30,50 amp. Sites were paved with picnic tables. Our site was well shaded by choice and was plenty long enough for the coach and the toad. Sites were spacious. If you want sites out of the shade those are available too. It is now 1st come 1st served and it was filling up fast as the weekend got there. We pulled in on a Tuesday and had no problem getting a site. By the weekend the place was full. Bathrooms and showers were clean until the weekend hit. They may have been cleaned in the morning but but by the time evening rolled around they needed shoveling out again. The showers are push button with vaguely warmish water and lots of pressure that blast into the area where your cloths are. They are adequate for getting clean but barely. For being so close to town the park was very quiet with a great view of the river. If you like hammocks they have a whole forest that seems like it was specifically designed for them. We pulled in from the Natchez Trace and were able to explore the Trace and many other attractions in the area. We'd stay here again if we're in the area. We camped at McFarland Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Trace State Park, Belden, Mississippi

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

First all the +'s: The site we had was level, with nice shade, > 170' long with WES 20,30,50 a picnic table and some rocks for a fire ring, no patio but a large grassy/sandy area right on the Lake***. The bathrooms and showers were clean with good pressure and plenty of hot water in the showers. The folks who checked me in noticed I had a 30 amp site without sewer and asked if I wanted one with full hook ups and gave me the nicest site in the park. The park was quiet peaceful and not very full. Verizon phone and Mifi worked great. The roads were easy to get around on except as noted below. Ok the other shoe is going to drop. The roads on the approach to the park and in the park are in some rough shape but low speeds will get you through the pot holes just fine. Now we come to the "Lake". They had about 300-300 yards of the go into to a slump mode on the water side of the dam. The net result is that there's no water in the lake around any of the camp sites. I was told they they "were fix'n it" but I saw no evidence of it. So if you're going to come here and think there's a lake look at the latest google earth pictures and call for an update. With the shape the roads are in I would be real surprised if they get any money to fix it within the next 5-10 yrs. On the bright side this means that there will probably be a lot of availability until it gets fixed and filled again. We'd stay here again if we're in the area. We camped at Trace State Park in a Motorhome.

Goshen Springs Campground, Brandon, Mississippi

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Roads: Paved and easy to get around on no tight turns, pay attention to the one way signs. Sites large, level, and all back in with WES 20,30,50 amp. Bathroom and showers were clean. Showers had good pressure and hot water but the shower heads were kind of wonky. Verizon Phone and Mifi worked fine as did the local Wifi from our site. We were pretty close to the office. Our site had pretty good shade and was in one of the older sections of the CG. The newer sections will have great shade in about 10 yrs. In the mean time the landscaping looks good. Fishing is the main activity here, not much else going on in the park. It's only about 3 miles from the Natchez Trace and about 15 from Jackson. The park was quiet with no real road noise. They do not take reservations and the sites are marked with an "M" for monthly rentals and "N" for nightly rentals. We'd stay here again if we're in the area. We camped at Goshen Springs Campground in a Motorhome.

Natchez State Park, Natchez, Mississippi

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

Roads: Paved speed limit 15 mph with reason if you follow the speed limit they present no problems. Sites Loop A sites 1-21 is the older CG and things a somewhat tighter and closer together, we did not stay there. Loop B 22-48. Power 20,30, 50 amp with water at all sites. Dump station on the way out for loop B. Sites was level but showed evidence of some minor flooding due to rain. Bathrooms and showers were clean with good hot water and good pressure. Verizon phone and Mifi worked well. There's a lake in the park and it's very close to B loop but the boat ramp is over by the rental cabins on the other side of the dam. They have one short nature trail about .5-.7 miles. This CG is a good staging area for seeing the sites Natchez has to offer and the lower Natchez Trace. If we're in the area again we'd stay here. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Motorhome.

If your up for an adventure you can go try and find the ghost town of Rodney. If you over by Fayette, MS you can check out the Fog Farm folk art site.

Clear Springs Recreation Area, Meadville, Mississippi

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

Quick Lay out: Lower level sites 1-12 at lake level, sites close together for FS CG. Sites pretty level. Sites 13-22 more spread out, some not close to level, location of the only pull through site. Only some sites will fit big rigs. Roads paved as are sites. Steep roads down to CG but easy to maneuver around. Some sites might be hard to get into. Only some sites will handle a 45' coach. Specifics: Site paved with large gravel patio, picnic table, fire ring lantern posts. Dump station on the way out. Power 20/30/50 amp with water. Bathrooms and showers spotless, showers are push button that run pretty long, water was warm to hot with good pressure. Our site,19,was pretty level with great view of lake. Verizon phone ok, Mifi slow 3G at camp sometimes up the hill by host site ok 4G. No host at this time. There is fishing and non motorized boating on the small lake (electric motor ok). Lots of trails for hiking/mountain biking in the area 10+ mile loops or out and back all from camp ground area. Come fully supplied, the closest grocery stores are in Natchez (30+) miles away. The CG was full on the weekend but pretty open during the week. All sites are 1st come. We'd stay here again if we're in the area. We camped at Clear Springs Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

Roads paved a bit tight in a few places. Sites: paved with 20/30/50 amp power, water and sewer. Mostly level but maybe at extremes of leveling system. Note on sewer - pay attention to location of sewer when positioning your rig. I had to use 2 hoses and back up 15' to reach the connection. Bathrooms and showers were clean. Showers had good pressure and plenty of hot water. Verizon phone and Mifi worked fine. No CG wifi. Host helpful and friendly. Reservations are made by phone only. It has a nice little lake for paddling around in and allows water skiing and jet skies. Nice quiet park with good facilities. We'd stay here again.

Service Park Campground COE, Coffeeville, Alabama

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

COE knows how to build dams/locks and RV campgrounds next to their manmade lakes. Roads: paved and easy access, sites all have 50/30/20 power and water, dump station on the way out. All sites have fire ring, lantern hook, picnic table, large gravel patio area, are spotless and are pretty level. Bathrooms were spotless as were the showers which had good pressure and plenty of hot water and were heated. 1 washer and dryer available in bath house. Verizon Phone and Mifi worked great. No wifi in the CG. Hosts were plentiful, friendly, and helpful. They have a 3 mile hiking trail (they call it 4 mile) and boat ramp. Tow boats go by most every day but are not a real noise issue. Boat ramp for fishing and power boats in CG. Note there is a low head dam about 1 mile down river from this boat ramp that will kill you if you go over it. The only down side was the abundance of poison ivy in the CG and surrounding woods. We were there during the spring and the frogs and gators provided a cacophony of tweets, croaks, grunts, peeps, and roars. We'd definitely stay here again if we're in the area. We camped at Service Park Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Open Pond Recreation Area, Andalusia, Alabama

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

Basics: Roads paved with easy access. Sites large with gravel patio, fire ring, picnic table, lantern hook, level. Power 50/30/20 and water/dump station on the way out. Bathrooms cleanish to dirty. Showers started dirty and got disgusting. We were there 5 days and they were only cleaned once. Camp hosts were nowhere to be found and not at their site till the weekend. I was told that they both disappear during the week and sometimes show up on weekends. The sites were full of micro to small trash and there were large amounts of partially burned food items and plastics. The showers had push button activators that you had to push 5-6 times to get water that was less cold to warmish but had good pressure. There was a very weak Verizon 3G signal for phone that worked sometimes and the Mifi would only work late at night or early morning (pre dawn) and work very slowly. We found that if you drove up an old logging road near the campground you could get good 4G Verizon Mifi. Outside of the negatives this is a very nice CG. Loops C&D have power and water, Loop A has no power and only hose bibs around. Loop B is group camps. The CG is located on a nice little pond with several ponds in the area. There are nice hiking trails offering 6-7 mile loops and out and back hikes/Mtn. bike trails. The place is very quiet; however, there are frequent small jet and airplane traffic and occasional military aircraft. We'd stay here again if we're in the area. We camped at Open Pond Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Hikes: Blue Spring 6-7 mile loop from the CG Blue lake 6-7 mile hike out and back. Note you can get picked up or dropped off at the end point of both of these hikes. Pitcher Plant Bog check with F.S. for info.

Seminole State Park, Donalsonville, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Basics: Roads are paved and smooth but a bit tight in some places. Sites are sand and gravel both depending on where you at. Sites are flat to kind of flat depending on where you are. All with water and Power: 50/30/20 amp is generally only in the loop next to the lake with a few other sites included. The other sites are 30/30/20. Note we were in site 30 and had to move because the 30 amp breaker kept tripping on one plug and had no power on there other. Bathrooms and showers were clean, with hot to warm water with OK pressure. No Wifi but Verizon phone and Mifi worked fine. Campground hosts were friendly as were rangers at the check in but they were pretty short on information about the park and the area. The CG is right on a lake and there's a hiking trail and boat ramp close by. There are playgrounds and a swim beach on the other side of the lake from the CG. The time of year we were here the place was very laid back and quiet and had none of the problems mentioned in previous post. Note I would have given it a higher rating but for the power problem. The host said he replaced one breaker and not the other one I was having problems with. I had checked the pedestal with a meter prior to plugging in and it had good voltage, ground, and polarity. We moved that morning and got a 50 amp site and had no problems with the power there. Our first site #30 was sand and grass and very level. Our second site was right on the lake and we had to put down 4.5" of lift on the front wheels to keep it in the optimal range for our air bag system. All but 7 sites are drive through and some are at some pretty steep grades from level. You can make non site specific reservations on the reservation site. All sites except the reserved handicap are on a 1st come basis. One dump station in the CG. We'd stay here again if we're in the area. We camped at Seminole State Park in a Motorhome.

Bluff Creek, Pittsview, Alabama

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

I'm not a fan of the dam building mania of the Army Corps of Engineers, but they do a great job of building campgrounds. This is only the 3rd A.C.E. campground I've stayed in and I must say that all the facilities are well designed, laid out, and well built. Basics: Roads paved asphalt and easy to maneuver around the the CG. Sites all have a level pad to park your rig on. Some pads maybe a tad short for a 45' coach but most are long enough. Power 20/30/50 amp at all sites along with water. They only have 1 dump station on the way out and I can see it getting congested with everyone leaving at once. The price reflects the 50% off for the Golden Age Pass. Most all sites are long enough to accommodate your RV and toad and or pulling unit. A significant number can handle your boat trailer and it's tow vehicle too. The showers and bathrooms were heated, spotless, and the shower had pretty good hot water and ok pressure. The only down side on the showers is an issue if you're taller than about 5'6", the shower heads are set pretty low. They make you work for dumping your trash. There is only one place to do it and it's a bit out of the way but it's a nice place to take your trash for a walk. They have no Wifi but Verizon phone and Mifi work fine. As mentioned in the previous post there is a lot of Spanish Moss however there's Spanish Moss all over the place down here so it comes with the territory. Beats looking a kudzu everywhere. Fort Bragg is not far away and you see and hear a lot of Army aircraft but we didn't hear any thing blowing up. We'd stay here again if we're in the area. We camped at Bluff Creek in a Motorhome.

This is a CG at the end of the road with a boat launch. Therefore it's quiet, pretty dark, right on the Gulf, and has some ok beaches. CG Basics: roads gravel and a bit tight to get around on if you go down the wrong ones. Sites gravel and depending on where you are pretty roomy and mostly level. Bathrooms and showers were spotless. Shower had good pressure and plenty of hot water. They are wired for cable but it doesn't work. They have no wifi but Verizon and Mifi work well unless a tower goes down, happened when we were there probably due to a prescribed burn on the mainland service was out in the whole area. It was back up the next morning. OTA tv gets 6 channels. All the sites have power and water but not all the sites have 50 amp. Our site had 50,30,20 amp with water. The water doesn't taste that great so you might want to come with full fresh water. No sewer hook up but the have a dump station and pump out service available. W/D are also on site. This was our second time here and we will come back if we're in the area again. We camped at Indian Pass Campground in a Motorhome.

Excellent sea food restaurant 3 miles away "Raw Bar" only about 15 miles from St. Joe Peninsula State Park. If you're looking for easy access to shopping, dinning etc. this is not for you. Port Saint Joe is about 12-14 miles away and Apalachicola is about 20. What you get is a Florida Gulf coastal access without: impossible traffic, endless beach supply stores, mini golf, or long lines. You're a about a 1/4 mile away from St. Vincent WMR across Indian Pass. A short paddle in a kayak or a shuttle service is available for $10 rnd. trip. The island has 8 mi of shoreline with nothing there except the island and lots of hiking on old roads through multiple coastal environments. There's an excellent seafood restaurant 3 miles up the road.

Overall Rating:

The park is under new management and they seem to be doing a lot to upgrade. Basics: Roads paved and easy to get around, sites paved and long with patio paved and picnic table. WiFi is reasonably fast except during high use periods. Verizon phone and MiFi worked great. Bathroom are dated and need some structural work but were clean. Push button showers and locker room shower heads (neither are a big hit with me) however the pressure was good and the water got hot eventually. The shower room I used had 3 showers stalls with one out of service. I'm not sure it's a 55+ park anymore several RV's with younger adults with kids (comment not a criticism). They were having a special when we were there $99/wk. Great deal but I'm pretty sure it does not represent their regular rate. As was said before, a lot of long term residents and snowbirds. We were in the cheap seats right next to Hwy 40 and it was a bit noisy during the day but not too bad at night. The vast majority of the sites are far enough away that hwy. noise would not be an issue. The sites had plenty of room for the coach and the toad. The folks were very nice and helpful. They had a full calendar of events everyday we were there. You are right across the street from Silver Springs State Park. Shopping and restaurants abound in the area. There is also a brewery in Ocala that makes some tasty beers. Depending on what the real daily/weekly rate is we'd stay here again.

Tips for other Campers:

Silver Springs State Park right across the street. Go rent a kayak or canoe and paddle down the Silver Springs River; crystal clear water, lots of birds, and plenty of gators to see. Several other very nice rivers in the area. A tasty brewery , Infinite Brewing, in Ocala a few miles away. Plenty of restaurants in the area for all price ranges from cheap to absurd.

Whispering Palms RV Resort (55+ park), Sebastian, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

If you like in your face road noise augmented by train noise with narrow hard to access sites, this is the place for you. Basics: roads are paved and easy to drive until you have to make a turn. The sites are narrow and pretty much right on top of one another. The turn into our site was a major trick to shoehorn between the water hook up on the right side and the sewer on the left. Verizon phone and mifi worked well, apparently they have wifi but we saw no signal from our site so maybe it works up at the office. The pool is salt water and clean, showers were hot with ok pressure and the bathrooms were clean. Our stay here was a last minute thing and this was the only place in the area that had any space. We had to move to another site for our 2nd night. I'm pretty sure we're not going to stay here again just for the difficulty of site access. The staff was great and everything was clean. We camped at Whispering Palms RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.
