Very well set up for each site to enjoy its privacy. Directv easy to set up. Well kept, full hookup, great bike trails and pool for kids. Very level, hookups convenient to connect. One of Indiana's best State Parks. TC's restaurant in Battle Ground a can't miss.

Date of Stay:

Blacktop everywhere, no dust, well kept, kid friendly, lots going on for kids, nice pool, easy in and to site, cable tv, SW for satellite no issue, sewer too far back from other hookups, Great find, close to many day excursions as well.

Date of Stay:

Hosts very nice, helpful on places to eat, area hot spots, and general information. Exceptional access off I-90. Within 1/2 mile of exit. Good Sam club member. Pull-through site close quarters, and ours had a "shared" sewer. 1st for me. Had to dump as needed and the site next to us did the same thing into the same sewer connection. Site wet from rains in area, stayed wet for stay. Wi-Fi excellent. Gravel drive and sites Pool not open when arriving, opened next day but level was 6" below recirculating returns so floating debris stayed in pool. Only 5 deck chairs and no shade, which may have been due to it being the 1st day of summer and pool had not been used for the season. Water line broke to campground and was repaired later that day. Over 75% were permanent sites. If DirecTV line of site important need to state up front, most sites are in shady area. Not a bad overnight, extended stay not so much if pool is important.

Date of Stay:

Based on no internet at sites, dirty pool, tight sites back to back and very close side to side. Nice clean showers, level sites, good location of utilities, location to falls, kid friendly, and general cleanliness; nice if phone and internet not important. We put a significant priority on this so key to rating. Also noted gate leaving malfunctioning so guests inconvenienced.

Date of Stay:

As good as I have seen, roomy sites a big plus. Did a pull-through which was exceptionally long. Cable good, phone service good, internet spotty, hosts exemplary, bingo night well run, dinner/dance night very smoothly operated, maintenance well attended to, quarry interesting, breakfast in town reasonable and close, even rode bicycle to it, a great campground. Day trips abound, Gainesville, Cedar Key, Ocala, and many others.

Date of Stay:

Stayed in upper campground due to pool availability for grand kids. Pool clean but not an Olympic size pool as stated in brochure. Appears to be more of an overnight stop for 3 gambling boats near the grounds. Showers had a bench with screws extending out from bench; notified office and repaired right away. Was hoping for more campground activities, the but pool was it during the week. Made the place our base for zoo in Cincinnati and Aquarium in Newport Ky. Great places I might add. Pull through sites nice, Wi-Fi was good, kids games in clubhouse all cost money.

Easy on/off from 65. Passport rate was $23 cash only; IRS please note. Envelopes for those checking in had the rate at $37 so not thinking the 50% rate being given to Passport America members. Seems like my rate should have been $18.50 by my calculations. But I was never good in math. Ate at the Franklin steakhouse in Franklin (converted waffle house) and it was an excellent meal for the price. The rib eye very good. Will look for another Passport America spot next time.

Date of Stay:

Hosts and owners friendly and quite helpful. Ate at Cheddars in Valdosta a decent meal for fair price. Easy in/out only 2 miles from I75. Very nice looking town/friendly and clean. WiFi sucked in fact never did get on line. Great overnight stop and passport america campground.

We found this park a wonderful experience and highly recommend it. 1st site too small for our 40' 5th wheel but the park attendants were great in putting us in a different site. Great views of the water from several sites. Cafe within 5 minutes going north on a1a, good meal and reasonable. Sweet Tomatoes pizzeria in west Melbourne also worth a visit. UDT museum and Mel Fishers museums great stops nearby.

Date of Stay:

Not for big rigs-camped in a 40' 5th wheel and could not get in 1st site due to turning radius. This campground needs grooming in the worst way. Won't be back. Great park for watching manatee and boat tour great. Angelina's for pizza and Bellini's for a great Italian of any kind. Right turn from Hwy 17 abysmally bad-ran over curb with RV once and dually truck another time. Potential of campground is immense-to bad its not utilized. Site not wide and sandy or is it level. They could do so much better.

Date of Stay:

It is not big rig friendly. Personnel standoffish and monotone when giving information as only a bureaucrat can. The entrance to the park is tricky, we went by 1st time. It is a hard v type turn into campground area. Site 87 overgrown and we had to not only watch sides but overhead as well-I even checked roof to make sure it was not damaged when setting up. We won't come back and left 4 days early. The town great for things to do; the American Legion at foot of drawbridge has a great prime rib. It you get to Palatka go to Angels diner (oldest diner in Florida) it's great.

Date of Stay:

State park with cable TV and Wi-Fi, although the Wi-Fi is not great. Full hookups. Roomy sites. Ignore site 16 in the fall with the acorns dropping. Scarecrows in the park is a hoot during Oct/Nov period. Great walking areas. Bike paths are super. Will camp here again. Town of Opp close and very convenient to 331.

Date of Stay:

Nice overnight with Wi-Fi and easy in and out. Gravel sites. Roomy. Many snow birds for the winter. Big Bob Gibsons barbecue for ribs was very good.

Date of Stay:

Great stopover near Cave City, Ky. Site 37 was huge, a great Direct TV spot and the Wi-Fi great. Gravel site but level. Just off 65: 2.5 miles at exit 53 going west. Gentlemen at office check in, offered suggestions on where to eat/things to see in area. We recommend the Mexican restaurant /El Mazatlan about 5 minutes from the campground. Looking at this as an annual stop on our snowbird trek each year.

Date of Stay:

Nice state park, roomy and well maintained. Eight miles to New Castle and many nice places to eat. Los Amigos Mexican was excellent. Nice beach, shade or sun your choice. Gravel sites, back in and pull through. Cell phone coverage weak but doable. Mifi in and out with Verizon. Will return.
