Gulf Coast Camping Resort (55+ park), Bonita Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $64.00
Overall Rating:      

When I see a park that has only 1 review I become suspect. So we decided to check it out. It was also only one of two RV parks in the area that had any room over Presidents Day week end in the area. That being said we were not disappointed. The basics: roads narrow and take some care getting around but coming in they show you where your site is and help get you into it. The site is grass on sand, we need to add 3" of lift to get the bus level and once your in it's got a lot of room. The showers were dated but spotless and had great hot water and pretty good pressure. The bathrooms were clean. They have wifi at the office and pool area but we didn't use it. Verizon phone and mifi worked great. We had a 50 amp site. There was only one 50 amp plug in and not a 30 or 20 amp outlets on our pedestal. The pool may not have been heated but as hot as it's been it felt great. I know they have 30 amp too, but I don't know if they have lower amperage plugs available on those sites. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The CG has a lot of seasonal owners but things are not cluttered and has a very homey touch. The people are friendly and the they had a full social calendar with something going on every day of the week. We were there and got to go the Valentine Day's dance. This is an older CG but it well kept up and I'd have to get pretty nit picking to say something bad about it. You can hear road noise from Hwy 41 but it's more background than in your face. The price seems a bit high for what you get but it's location, location, etc. If we're in the area we'd stay here again in a heart beat. Note the rate reflects a week stay. We camped at Gulf Coast Camping Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Close to the beaches, the Momentum Brewery, short drive to Corkscrew Swamp Audubon Preserve (well worth the drive) if you want to paddle around on the Imperial River you can rent kayak's and paddle boards. Publix is across the street and there are plenty of shops, restaurants, and boutiques that are willing to take all the money you want to spend all very close to the CG.

Jolly Roger Travel Park, Marathon, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $112.00
Overall Rating:      

Basics: Paved narrow roads, sites sand and grass, pretty good Wifi, Verizon mifi and phone work well, showers and bath rooms were clean and newly renovated following Irma. This site and many others in the area were whacked hard by hurricane Irma. The folks here have been working hard to get things all fixed up. Our site was right on the harbor looking out on the gulf next to the picnic shelter and gathering spot for sunset. During the day the area had a lot of foot traffic and was noisy due to landscaping but very quiet at night. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The price was pretty high but we had a premium site because that was all that was available. The sites are pretty close together but there's room for slides and awning to co exist with their neighbors. I suspect part of the reason for the high price is the lack of availability due to Irma. (several CG are still closed). Outside of the price the park was very nice and we would consider staying here again. We camped at Jolly Roger Travel Park in a Motorhome.

Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground), Homestead, Florida

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

This CG is about 50 miles from the closest resupply so come in with all your supplies, empty waste tanks and full fresh water. Dump station and fresh water is available however when we were there they were having a lot of problems with their water system and you had to boil your consumable water. I suspect that this is going to be a continuing issue due to the lack of funding the National Park Service receives. Sites are all pull through paved with picnic table and fire ring. The reservable sites (41) are all power with 20/30/50 amp. The park was still cleaning up after Irma and has taken a beating over the years from a number of hurricanes. The power sites were running a 10-15% vacancy every night and the host refused to let anyone use them unless they had a reservation. There is no wifi, no Verizon reception but I heard AT&T had a weak signal. You had to drive at least 11 miles to get phone and I had to drive out 20+ miles to get internet. The only services they have down there are canoe and kayak rentals and fuel for boats. We didn't have any problems with bugs but it was windy and coolish the whole time we were there. The "T" loop is the only one open right now and all the non electric sites are first come. We had to extend another day and had to move to one of these despite the fact that there were 6 open electrical sites. One should note that this concessionaire does not require that anybody stay in the sites if you have paid for the site and you can apparently just park you boat trailer in a site and leave it. This pretty much goes against every regulation I have seen in every Federal campground I've been to. The NP site still mentions a hotel and store but they were torn down due to hurricane damage. The one convenient store was closed due to flooding and showed no signs of being reopened. We'd stay here again if we wanted to visit the Everglades. We camped at Flamingo Campground (NPS Campground) in a Motorhome.

Hurricane Irma left her mark on the Park. There are large slash piles of dead trees scattered around. The once abundant bird populations seem to have moved out of there area. There are large swaths of dead trees probably due to the storm surge. It will be interesting to come back in a few years to see how it regenerates. Fishing and paddling opportunities are abundant and I pretty sure the birds will be back for the bird watching.

Outdoor Resorts of Chokoloskee, Chokoloskee Island, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $79.00
Overall Rating:      

Post Irma stay: Basic sites and roads are paved, roads are mostly one way and wide enough that you should have no trouble getting around. All sites are back in with plenty of room for the tow. This place was under 5-7' of water with the storm surge from Irma. You'd never know it. The place was spotless and the landscaping seemed untouched by the storm. Verizon phone and mifi worked well as did the on site Wifi. Showers were clean with good hot water and pressure. These sites are all privately owned and you have no real choice of which sites you will get till you show up. The nights were quiet and there's not much going on in the area in the way of night life, suited us fine. Fishing is the big entertainment in the area along with paddling. We'd stay here again if we are in the area. We camped at Outdoor Resorts of Chokoloskee in a Motorhome.

Trail Lakes Campground, Ochopee, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $60.00
Overall Rating:      

Basics: sand roads and grass and sand sites. Sites are pretty tight when they are busy. No picnic table or fire rings at this site some of the other sites have both. There are a few long term/seasonal residents here but not an issue. Roads are easy to navigate. Bathrooms are cleanish but what they really need is a good sandblasting and resealing and paint. The site we were in was right next to the swamp (10') and pretty level. They have 20/30/50 amp power and water at sites with a dump station by the bathroom. The price is pretty steep but they are one of the few campgrounds in there area, location, location, location. This is the site of the "Swampskunk" (bigfoot) research center, it has a trinkets store, and a small zoo of various animals for an additional $12. We stayed here overnight to cut our drive down to a reasonable distance. We will probably stay here again, especially now due to the government shut down, their rate is the cheapest in the area that our coach will fit in. This is a great location to explore Big Cypress National Preserve with hiking and kayaking trails in the area. Just to put things in perspective; This is not an RV Resort, it is an RV park with the minimums in a beautiful area. We camped at Trail Lakes Campground in a Motorhome.

Narrow paved Roads with grass/sand sites that are level and FHU's. Cable and wifi are available. However the wifi they had for free sucks. The folks that run the place are very friendly. This is a seasonal park that has many long term residents in a quiet area. The showers had good pressure and hot water and the bathrooms and showers were clean. We just stayed here one night. It's an out of the way park that is very quiet and has their own little habor off the lake. We'd stay here again if we're in the area. We camped at Oak Harbor Lodging and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mike Roess Gold Head Branch State Park, Keystone Heights, Florida

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

The previous review gave a good outline of the park. Be aware that some of the sites in Lakeview and Turkey Oak CG's have loops that you probably don't want to go down into in a tall Class A due to rough dirt/sand roads and low hanging branches. So do your research with a phone call to be sure. The sites are compact sand and grass that look pretty flat but some are sloped. The showers and bathrooms were clean with good hot water and good pressure. No Wifi but Virizon phone and Mifi work well. We were in site 39 and the water spigot is about 60-70' away from your rig with only 20/30 amp power at the sites. Dump station is down the road if you have to fill your fresh water tanks do it at the camp site. We will stay here again if we're in the area and there's room. We camped at Mike Roess Gold Head Branch State Park in a Motorhome.

Steven C. Foster State Park, Fargo, Georgia

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Stephen C. Foster State Park G. Basics: Roads are paved, sites have water, 30 amp power, and cable hook ups (we did not use it so I have no idea what kind of channels they have) site was mostly level but not flat. Showers were hot with good pressure and they and the bathrooms were both clean. There is a washer and dryer available. This park has fantastic bird watching, hiking, and paddling on the Okefenokee Swamp with motor boat, canoe, and kayak rentals. The park is a designated dark sky area and the stars are incredibly sharp. They have guided boat tours available and many ranger led activities. There is no wifi available but Verizon phone will work if not too many people are trying to make a call, no mifi available. Text will probably go through with the least amount of problems. I addition to the phone you are at least 1 hour from the closest place to get supplies so come with your larder well stocked. Note on the rate: Base Rate is $35/day plus $5/entry fee. Our Federal Geezer Card covered the entry fee. Our rate was $17.50 with the winter promotion 50% off deal check the Park Website for details. For your site selection they have color coded all the sites based on length. They give you a color and you go pick your site. This is the second time we've been here and will gladly stay here again. We camped at Steven C. Foster State Park in a Motorhome.

Fort McAllister State Park, Richmond Hill, Georgia

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Fort McAllister Basics: Roads paved but a bit rough in spots. Sites for rv's are mostly pull throughs on packed sand and are pretty level with water and 30 amp service. Dump station is on the way out and if you want to fill your fresh water tank do it at your site. Bathrooms are dated but were clean with good hot water and pressure. A Gate code needed to get into the park. They have no Wifi but Verizon Phone and Mifi worked well. There is a high level of racoon activity so you really have to make sure you leave no garbage or food about or the fuzzy bandits will clean you out. A note on the $15/day. The base rate was $32/day. They gave me a 20% senior discount, 3.75% for being a retired FF and this winter they had a 50% discount for just coming out and using the camping at the park. Check the Ga. State Parks website for the promotion code. This was a nice quiet island site surrounded by tidal marsh. There is an additional charge to go see the Fort and museum. If we are in the area again we will stay here again. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

Edisto Beach State Park, Edisto Island, South Carolina

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is essentially two separate CGs. The "Beach" CG are sites 1-75. Sites 1-12 are in low clearance areas and I would be reluctant to go in with anything over 10' in height. Take that with a grain to pound of salt. These sites also have full shade. The roads are paved and sand and easy to maneuver on with the exception of 1-12. Check the length of the site on Res. America. They all have 30 amp service and water. Note the water is rather salty but potable both CG's. All the sites I saw looked pretty flat and packed sand. There's a few sites that are out in the open with no shade on the north end all the rest have at least a smattering to full shade. The showers are heated and clean. I did not use the facilities at this site. The beach is just a short walk over the dune. The "Live Oak" CG is off the beach on Edisto Island about ¾ mi. It has sites 76-125 for rv/tent and sites 126-130 are walk in tent sites all with nice views. It is in a Live Oak Maritime Forest along the marshlands tidal areas. The roads are sand and are a bit tight but doable. All the sites are very flat with 30 amp, water with packed sand and most are just a straight shot back in. We were in 122 and had to do a lot of maneuvering to get in. Most of the sites are heavily shaded and have a lot of space between sites. There are several very nice hiking/biking trails that run through the forest and over the marshlands on very nice board walks. The showers were clean, heated (a huge plus when we were there) and had good pressure. The bathrooms were equally as clean. When ice is off the rivers this would have been a great place to paddle around in a SUP or kayak. When I booked 6 days it was about $30/day but I had to extend one day due to the storm and it was less than $25. I did it at the office. Down at the "Beach" they lock you in at night but probably give you a combo to get out. There's no gate at "Live Oak" CG. We'd stay here again if we're in the area. We camped at Edisto Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Sesquicentennial State Park, Columbia, South Carolina

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $27.00
Overall Rating:      

About the Rates: The rates listed on Reserve America site show $21 per night during the week and $27 per night on weekends. This is the second State Park I've stayed at this year in South Carolina and despite what they tell you it works out to about $30/night +- with 12% tax. Basics: This is a park that use to be out in the country but is now a urban park. There is a constant hum of traffic but it's not too intrusive. The roads are gravel and tight in several places but wide enough and the turns are gentle, set up right and go slow and it's not a problem. Sites are gravel and most are reasonably flatish but some are pretty sloped. Picnic table and fire ring at each site along with 20/30 amp power only and water. No sewer but the dump station is on the way out along with the one dumpster they have for the campground fill your fresh water tank at your site. The bathrooms are not handicap friendly. They are clean, a bit old but functional with good pressure and lots of hot water, . No wifi but Verizon phone and Mifi work just fine. Multiple hiking and biking trails in the park with a nice lake for fishing and paddling around in. They rent canoes and kayaks. This Park CG is the closest to Congaree National Park, about 10-14 miles to downtown points in Columbia, and shopping is close. If you are beer lover they have 5 breweries and brew pubs in town. We'd stay here again. We camped at Sesquicentennial State Park in a Motorhome.

Myrtle Beach State Park, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Basics: Paved roads that are a bit tight in some places. Sand sites with power and water only (choice of 30 or 50 amp) some with FHUs. The price of the sites vary on the choice of utilities. We had one with water and 50 amp service and ran about $30/night. Sites are pretty close together but it wasn't crowded this time of year. It's a short hike or drive to the beach from the campground. The showers have plenty of hot water, ok pressure and were clean as were the bathrooms. They have free WiFi which works pretty well in December maybe not so much when the place is packed. Verizon phone and Mifi work fine.

This park is hemmed in on 3 sides by development and highways and is a small oasis of what the coast may have looked like. Short hiking trails and a beach devoid of condos give it a very nice feel. One unfortunate thing is that it's right on the main approach for the local airport which had about 300 flights per day in 2016. 16% of which are commercial and 4% military doing touch and go's, so it can get a bit noisy at certain times of the day. They have a fishing pier where you can test your skills or just watch. We would probably stay here again if we're in the area. One thing to note there are no alcoholic beverages allowed in South Carolina State Parks. They do lock the gates at night but they give you the combo so you can get back in. We camped at Myrtle Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Cedar Point Campground USFS, Cedar Point, North Carolina

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:      

Basics: Paved roads easy to get around in with paved sites that are all pretty long. They just have power at the sites 20/30/50 and water scattered around the CG and the dump station. Verizon phone and MiFi work well. Showers were clean but it's a push button shower and it takes 5-8 pushes to get something other than cold water then it's just warm with mediocre pressure. They have a nice hiking trail and elevated board walk through the tidal marsh lands. If you enjoy the sound of distant thunder everyday you're in luck come rain or shine. Camp Lejeune Marine Base is just down the road and you'll be serenaded by the sounds of mortars, heavy artillery, naval gun fire, rocket fire, demolition training, some fixed winged and rotary winged aircraft. They generally limit the training from 0800 hrs to 2359 hrs (8 am-1159 pm) 7 days a week. You can get the scheduled by going to the camp website and look under "Training", "Scheduled Noise Generating Events". It won't shake you out of your chair but it will occasionally rattle a few windows. Outside of that it's very nice quiet CG that has a lot space between sites and partial shade. This is the second time we stayed here and would do so in the future. One note is that they lock the gate at 10 pm, this seems to be a North Carolina thing that I'm not particulary fond of. We camped at Cedar Point Campground USFS in a Motorhome.

Neuse River Campground - Croatan National Forest, New Bern, North Carolina

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

Basics: power is only available at the sites 20/30/50. Each site has a fire ring picnic table, and lantern pole. Sites are pretty level and all the sites have power except those along the river. The roads are paved and easy to get around on the sites are gravel. There is no wifi but Verizon Mifi and phone works well. The bathrooms look like they get cleaned once a week or so if they need it or not. The showers are pretty lame they only have 2 working showers and the hot water runs out pretty fast with poor pressure. One thing they do here that I could get no good answer for is lock the gate at 5 pm. I heard several people having a rather loud discussion with the host about this. We talked to a lady host who said they don't really lock the gate just shut it. However there was a lock on it that was locked when I looked. This seems to be something they do all over North Carolina but I've never seen them do it this early. A note on the price, it is going to go up in 2018 to $20/day without the senior discount plus the power charge. The host at this CG were giving a 50% discount on power which everywhere else I found they charge the full $7 and gave no discount on that. I can't address the fresh water issue at the dump as we did not use it. This CG is close to New Bern but the closest shopping is in Havelock. The CG has hiking trails, a beach, and is close to many paddling opportunities. It is also only a few miles from Cherry Point Marine Air Station and those folks train most every day so you get to hear the "Sound of Freedom" on a regular basis. On the plus side I did not hear them training in the middle of the night or too early in the morning. We'd stay here again if we're in the area but I'd get the lock in question cleared up before we do. We camped at Neuse River Campground - Croatan National Forest in a Motorhome.

Riverside Campground, Belhaven, North Carolina

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here mainly because it hadn't had a review since 2011 and it only had 2 reviews. I also wanted to update the contact number and put the address in. The basics are still the same, grass on a sand base that will support RV's when wet. It's easy to get around and all the sites are both back in and drive through. Here's the amazing part the rate is still $25/night no discounts. They do take credit cards, sometimes when the machine is working. They are happy to take a check or cash. The folks running the place were very friendly and helpful. We hadn't decided how long we want to stay so they said just drop a check in the drop box on the way out for the number of days you stayed. This CG attracts a lot of fisher persons with boats, deer and duck hunters. It's located right on the Pongo River. The CG is quiet and peaceful. We had our kayaks along and did a 5 mile paddle on the Pongo and it was beautiful. The showers and bathroom were clean with good hot water and ok pressure. Verizon phone and Mifi worked fine. Washer and dryers are available. If we're back in the area we'd stay here again. We camped at Riverside Campground in a Motorhome.
