Planned on staying here a week, but after 3 days enough was enough. Yes it is a pet friendly park. Pet owners let their dogs run free in the park, crap on your campsite, and people just walk through your site! I like to sit outside of the morning and have my coffee while watching the sun rise while it is quiet, but we have two small dogs come running each morning over to our site, do their business and then start barking at us. After informing the camp hosts, nothing was resolved. After 3 days of this we left to continue our travel to the West Coast. I thought it was a unwritten rule that you don't walk through someone's campsite, and campgrounds made everyone keep their pets on a leash and had them clean up after them. Guess I was wrong about this campground.

We stayed at Cody's for a few nights, it was a very pleasant campground, out of the way. A really, back to nature campground, not like the other paved road types. This campground has real character. Plenty of things to do in the area and the campground has boats available for use, fishing, a rec hall with pool table and a castle! We met the mermaid of the park. The park manager told us this was the brain child of the owner. He created it and I must say he did a fine job. There is a real working lighthouse too. Everyone is really friendly and we meet people from Canada and Germany staying here. If you don't want the main stream type of campground, I would recommend Cody's for a truly relaxing and quiet camping experience.

Nice COE park, and they are staying open year-round again. Check-in was a little slow as the COE disabled the computer for the winter (wierd!) We visit this campground a lot, and always enjoy it. There are only a few full-hookup sites, the majority are water/electric. There is a 2-lane dump station though.

A nice campground near Hopewell Cape Rocks. (Less than 1 mile) You can go there to watch the tides change by up to 40 feet in the Bay of Fundy. This campground didn't look like much from the road, but it had a state park feel to it. Nice shaded sites, plenty of room to run around. There are several lakes for fishing or canoeing. They had canoes for rent. You can walk on the marsh areas out to the Bay of Fundy when the tides are down. This was a great campground. Only negative was really low water pressure, and dated electrical.

Nice park, very clean. Great playgrounds for the kids, and a Putt-putt golf at the entrance. McDonnalds is next door if you want to send the kids out for breakfast. My only complaints are that I asked for a satellite friendly site, and didn't get one, even though there were alot available. I was also not told about the different types of sites "premium", non-premium, and stuck into a premium site which I considered way overpriced. If I had picked a site, I would have picked one of the sites behind the office that were surely to be satellite friendly, and much less expensive since they weren't the premium sites. I would have also stayed more than one night, but since the satellite internet wouldn't work, the price was 66/night, we decided to leave Wells Beach and head on up the road. We had origionly planned on staying 2 nights in Wells Beach. The WiFi was free, but didn't work very well in the Motorhome. I was able to go sit on the steps outside the office next to the pool and use the WiFi with no problems. I could hit it every now and then from the Motorhome, and my site was one of the closest to the office. I don't know why parks bother with WiFi if they can't get a full signal to every site. (It's easy to get full signals to every site with several cisco WiFi routers, no wires needed, Hint Hint!)

Nice park in quite setting. Lighted hookup posts, not much light at night otherwise. This park can handle any size rig, and has both shaded and open sites for people wanting to use satellite internet. Very nice playground, and looked as though much planning went into entire park. There were concrete drains below water hydrants, concrete collars around sewer connections, cable-tv hookup in the lighted hookup boxes. We were just overnighting there, but it looked like a good destination park with the lake for fishing, nice playground, and swimming pool. The family that runs the park seemed nice enough at check-in. I didn't give it a 10 because it lacked paved roads and concrete pads on the sites. I didn't notice the dust previously mentioned, but I'm sure with a long dry spell it could get dusty.

Nice campground, less than a mile from I-75. You can hear I-75 at night when it's quiet out, but not from inside the camper. There are alot of trees, and I was able to get SAT-TV, but not SAT-internet. They have Wi-Fi, but it looks like they have multiple routers all with the same name, so my signal would go from full strength to very weak so much that it wasn't usable from inside the motorhome. I'm actually sitting outside their office writing this review. Even though there are alot of trees, they are trimmed well, and didn't pose a problem for my 42' MH. The site they put us on has about 100' concrete pad, and is great. They have a nice store, playground, and the owner was present at check-in. She escorted us to our site, and recommended a good restaurant in Sweetwater (Hunter's Bakery and Cafe). Sweetwater had a ton of Antique stores, and a very nice downtown area. We are just overnighting here, but we'd definitely stay here again if in the area.

Nice campground next to Corinth Gun club. Actually built for people to stay at during skeet competitions. We stayed here while visiting the new Civil War center and other attractions in the Corinth area. They were having a skeet competition while we were here, but the noise was minimal. All sites have full hookups, and we would definitely stay here if in northeast MS again. About 30 minutes to Pickwick Lake. They accept Passport America and Good Sam members.

Date of Stay:

Paved roads and sites, but some pavement in disrepair. Tree limbs needed trimming when we were here, but they didn't hit our 42' motorhome. Many of the sites were pretty unlevel. Too many trees for good satellite, but there is a row that had a clear view to the south. Staff friendly, but their computer system seemed to make their job slow and difficult. Ttrying to figure out which sites were available. I had to wait in line everytime I went into the office. Overall we had a great time and will definitely go back.

Great park. Alot of snowbirds. Paved interior roads and concrete pads. Laundry facilities were clean and in good working order. Most of the sites are back-in, there were only a few pull-through sites. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

New park, and owners seem a little clueless. After checking in, we grabbed a bite to eat, then went back to do laundry. When we got back the laundry was locked, it stays open during office hours of the cg. I would call it a family type campground, but there was no playground. There were a few long-term residents there, and one actually had a swingset they brought with them. It was hard explaining to my kids (2 & 5) that it wasn't the playground for the campground. The entry / exit signs were confusing. We had trouble finding their number as they weren't in our cg guides yet. It's (334)271-8063. We would stay here if in the area again.

I agree with the last reviewer, you go through a bad area to get to the campground. Sites are tight and owner also opened up to check me in late one night, then led us to the site. We wouldn't stay there again unless we were so tired we couldn't go on.

Nice park on outskirts of town. We would stay here on a return visit. Nice playground and lots of shade.

This place is weird. We also noticed a new person being trained at check-in. It was a little painful, but the park was nice. We did have someone try our doorhandle during the night, and saw footprints in the mud outside the door the next morning. It's a gated park, so it had to be someone staying here.

Very nice resort out in the middle of nowhere. There isn't much to the lake, but the resort was very nice. Not far from Silver Springs, and it was a nice stopping point between Destin and Disney.
