Pleasant surprise... Kentucky is a beautiful state. Our welcome was friendly and inviting. This campground is very clean, including all its facilities. Campground does not include a pool or clubhouse. All sites are pull-thru sites and roads are big rig friendly. Campsite included picnic table, but no fire pit. Wi-Fi was reliable, but weak at times. Getting a DirecTV (free standing satellite) signal was no issue. Campground is within 1 mile of dining, gas station, fast food, tourist shops and freeway access. Walmart, other stores and theater were about a 20 min drive. Mammoth Cave National Park and other attractions are within a 20 min drive from the campground. Campground is close to active train tracks, which produced some noise throughout the park. These trains seem to run all day and night. We would camp here again.

Our welcome to this campground was friendly and inviting. Campground check-in office includes a gift store. Campground and roads are big rig friendly, but pot holes are a major problem. We believe the park was addressing this concern during our visit. Pull-thru sites are available. Our campsite included a picnic table and full service, but many low ground areas surrounding our campsite flooded during any rainfall. Weak water pressure was a constant problem. Getting a DirecTV (free standing satellite) signal was no issue. Verizon phones were able to maintain a 4g signal. Wi-Fi was weak and not reliable.

Beautiful state park and campground. Campground and roads are big rig friendly. We found the upper section of the campground provided the best campsites (sites 65-88.) This section offered tree covered sites, but also provided open skies to get a satellite signal. Pull-thru sites are available. Campsite included a fire pit and picnic table. Verizon phones were able to maintain a 4g signal. Campground is within 5 min of freeway access. Gas, grocery and dining were a 20 min drive from campground. High Falls State Park includes some amazing hiking trails along the river. Sections of these trails are wood deck platforms, with steps and hand rails for easy access.

Enjoyed our time at this state park. We were surprised that some sites include full RV service. No Wi-Fi available as this is a state park. Verizon phones were able to maintain a 4g signal. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Campground and roads are big rig friendly and site have some distance between them for privacy. Boat ramp, fishing, beach, mini golf, large picnic areas and hiking trails were available. Caution to those sites under the trees; very damp and lots of foliage drops on your RV. Truck and RV needed MUCH cleaning to get rid of foliage (leaves) and pods which stained the truck and RV. We would never park under these trees again. Campground is about a 15 min drive from freeway, fast food, grocery and gas stations.

We enjoyed our time at Lazy Days RV Resort. This is a large, clean campground, but we found sites were close together. Campground and roads are big rig friendly. No Pull-thru sites were available. Campground offers daily vouchers for free breakfast and lunch Monday thru Saturday. These food vouchers can only be redeemed at the dealership, which is next door. This dealership has some RV accessories if needed. Trolley service was available for transportation. Campground has a beautiful screen covered pool & spa area with lots of seating. They also have a restaurant & bar on-site (Called "Exit 10"). The campground put together a weekly "Movie Night" in the Rec. room, which is also available for Rally's or large group meetings. The pool/spa area, bathroom facilities and laundry room were very clean. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Verizon phones were able to maintain a 4g signal. Wi-Fi was weak and not reliable. Campground is within 1 mile of gas stations, restaurants and freeway. Grocery store (Walmart) was within a 3 mile drive.

We enjoyed our time here and the staff was friendly. Campsite and fire pit was clean, and site needed some minor leveling. Sites along the lake only included a small two seat table, which we found an inconvenience. We would have preferred a standard picnic table. Some camper and cabin customers were long term, and these sites appeared really rough, which presented a negative look on the park. Wi-Fi was weak and not reliable. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Verizon phones were able to maintain a 4g signal. Pull-thru sites are available. Check-in process and discounts offered was a constant concern, as we discovered incorrect charges to our account which needed to be fixed frequently. Campground within 1-2 miles from gas station, restaurants, freeway access and grocery store. Campground is 30 min from Disney World and 45 min from Kennedy Space Center. Overall, those campsites along Lake Whippoorwill were amazing.

We enjoyed our time at this newly developed campground. During check-in, agent (lady) made a comment about my style of RV (which is a 2013 unit) being hard to setup, and they seem to break down a lot. We found this to be untrue and felt this comment wasn't warranted and provided a less inviting attitude. Laundry, bathrooms and pool area were clean. Campground is about 30min drive to Savanna/River Street. Campground within a few miles of gas stations, food, freeway access and grocery store. Our site needed some leveling. View of the lake was amazing, but comes with a high price. Many campers were long term, and these RV's appeared really rough, which presented a negative look on the park. Signs throughout the park warn of alligators, but we never saw any. Verizon phones were able to maintain a 4g signal. WiFi was strong and reliable. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Pull-thru sites are available and we found this campground to be big rig friendly.

Our time at this campground is one to remember. We found Lakewood Camping Resort had many amenities we enjoyed; mini golf, trade store, food station, golf cart rental, fishing, waterpark, great access to the beach and much more. Our site needed some minor leveling. Campsite didn't include a fire-pit, but your personal fire-pit is allowed. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. Verizon phones were able to maintain a 4g signal. Pull-thru sites are available. Campground and roads are big rig friendly. Campground within 1 mile of gas stations, food, freeway access and grocery store. In fact, a small Walmart store is across the street. This campground is located between two other large campgrounds. But, after visiting the other campgrounds, we found Lakewood Camping Resort was our favorite.

We enjoyed our time at this campground. From our campsite, we could hear and see the ocean. This campground has narrow roads, which are not big rig friendly. Use caution. Campground within 1 mile of gas stations, restaurants, freeway and grocery stores. Verizon phones were able to maintain a 4g signal. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. We utilized this campground to visit Virginia Beach, which was within a 30min drive and Nauticus and Wisconsin Battleship museum. We also took the Chesapeake Bridge, which has a small restaurant midway. We (including our furry friends) did not enjoy the pot stickers covering the grounds throughout the park. Our dogs were constantly crying for help, and walking barefoot isn't an option. Please use caution before stepping into your RV, as these pot stickers can find their way inside, and they do hurt on bare feet.

We enjoyed our time at Pohick. Campground includes many amenities; hiking trails, frisbee golf, boat ramp, fishing, picnic areas and much more. We utilized this campground to visit Washington DC, taking the local train which was only 15mins from the park. Only a couple sites offer direct sight of the sky for satellite TV. Since we didn't have a roof mounted satellite, we were able to move our dish through the trees. Our site included picnic table, fire pit and bbq. Our site was level and as many sites, surrounded by trees. Our Verizon phones were able to get a 4g signal from our site. No pull through sites, and some sites are not big rig friendly maneuvering in and out of. Campground within few miles of gas stations, restaurants, mall, movie theater, freeway access and grocery stores. This state park provides a few full service sites.

Very warm and inviting welcome. Campground does have a steep climb to the RV sites. Many campers were long term, and these RV's appeared really rough, which presented a negative look on the park. Our campsite was level. Verizon phones were able to maintain a 4g signal. Wi-Fi was strong, and reliable, but weak during busy weekends. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue. We utilized this campground to visit New York. A local train station within 30mins of the campground was utilized while visiting New York. This new train station was clean, safe, included large parking lot and some dining. Campground also offers a shuttle tour service into New York. We must warn that this campground has a problem with stink bugs. These critters get into every opening, squeezing between weather strips and into storage compartments. In fact, it was a conversation a few RV'ers were complaining about while staying here. As we traveled further south, we continued to find stink bugs in our storage compartments. We are currently on a 2 year adventure taking our RV throughout the US, and have been RV'ing for many years. Therefore, we have an idea between high-standard qualities and poor quality. This campground is in need of much TLC. Don't be deceived by the photos on their website or listed amenities.

This is a unique campground; very quiet, clean, has scenic trails and is conveniently located near the heart of Prescott. Some of the trails take you to Watson Lake and Willow Lake. It’s a small drive to the historic Prescott's Whiskey Row, where many shops and restaurants are available. Our site was surrounded by trees, rocks and bushes. Roads and sites are not paved, just dirt. Our site was level, no adjustments needed. This Park includes both back-in and pull-through sites. The staff was very friendly. As always, we travel to other campgrounds when visiting a new location. We determined this was the best campground in the area. We plan on visiting every year.

We found this campground had little to offer compared to those down the street. Campground needs much TLC and lacks many amenities compared to others in the area. Beach access was a plus. Satellite signal is not an issue. Verizon phones are able to maintain a 4g signal. Pull-thru sites are available. Campsites include a covered patio with picnic table. Campground and roads are big rig friendly. We had friends that planned on visiting us, but had to cancel 5 days before arriving. They were charged a transaction fee and one days rent. Once they arrived, they stayed at a neighboring campground next door. While visiting them, we found theirs to be the better campground. We suggest fellow RV'ers look at other locations before staying at Pirateland Family Campground. Two other large campgrounds are at the same location, and shoreline. Prices are comparable to these other parks which provide many more amenities.

Very warm and inviting welcome from staff and camp host. We found the winery station onsite a plus, wine tasting was a big hit. Staff at the winery house were very friendly. We found this to be a small park, which needs some TLC. The park has some hiking trails, however, the trails, leaves and shrubbery at the park need some maintenance. Many campers were long term, and these RV's appeared really rough, which presented a negative look on the park. Wi-Fi was weak and not reliable. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue.
