Dale Hollow Damsite COE, Celina, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

Typical COE park - nice layout. Most sites are large and spaced out well. A few sites right on the river are smaller, and spaced closer than those off the river. One exception is site 48 which is very large (although spaced close to others. Sites are generally longer than given on the COE website. Many pull-through sites. In heavy rains, the CG may hold water in places. The trout fish hatchery is adjacent to the campground property and is worth a tour. The tours are unscheduled, but the hatchery is open to visitors between 7:30AM and 3:00PM. The hatchery staff is available to answer questions. Groceries, fuel and a hardware store are 2-3 miles away in Celina. Verizon coverage is 3/5, others non-existent. Fairly heavy tree canopy, so satellite reception is "find a hole in the trees". If you kayak or canoe, this is an ideal campground. There is a boat ramp at the CG, the take out is at the Donaldson City Park in Celina. At normal generation levels at the dam, the river moves at about 10 mph, which makes for a 1.5 to 2 hour trip to the take out. The river water is flat but moving, no water hazards, beautiful trip. We camped at Dale Hollow Damsite COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Shady Grove Park, Cumming, Georgia

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

This CG appears to be well funded and is well maintained. Lots of maintenance going on when we were there, just prior to the Georgia spring break week. Layout is typical for a COE park (although it is a County park). Many good lake side sites, although many were tent sites (no power). Seems like the longer, larger sites with 50 amp power were in the higher numbers. Check the on line map carefully. Many of the lower numbered sites were too close for my liking. These were usually 30 amp (or no power) sites. My favorite sites for a large rig are 97, 98 and 85. Many of the large sites are "split level" to the sitting area. Access to the lake varies from site to site because of the steep banks. There is a good playground and fairly nice swimming beach. Only one dump station, but it is in good shape. Good over-the-air TV reception from Atlanta stations. Verizon coverage is 3/5 over the full CG. The CG terrain is moderate hills - fair for bicycles. Grocery store, hardware and a fishing center are nearby. CAUTION - As of the date of this review (3-30-2017), there is a low hanging communications cable on Shady Grove Road near the address of 7010, about 1 mile outside the CG gate. We hit the wire on the way out, but it did not snag on our AC. Others might not be so lucky - be aware of this and be careful. This was reported to the Forsythe County Sheriff's Office, AT&T and the campground. Hopefully it will be repaired soon. The height of the cable is approx 12' 3". We camped at Shady Grove Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park, Cordele, Georgia

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This CG is associated with the Lake Blakeshear Resort. Sites are non-specific, so get there as early in the day as you can to have a shot at the best sites. The posts that are painted green are 50amp, the ones that are unpainted are 30 amp (we were not told this upon check in). About 1/3 of the sites are "water" sites. The sites are a little tight for my liking and I was disappointed to see them adding more sites in part of the CG. Those sites were even closer with no trees or other vegetation to afford privacy. There is good WiFi available in the CG. The bathrooms are old, but well maintained and fairly clean (all except a sour smell because someone didn't clean out their mop one day!). There are static military exhibits that are pretty interesting - several tanks and airplanes from the WWII and Vietnam era. This CG is very convenient for those traveling I-75 or U.S. Hwy 280, both major roads. There is one general store with fuel (gas and diesel) in the area, in fact the general store has a pretty respectable meat market. The Park/Resort has golf, a short-line railroad that runs to Cordele, Ga., a couple of restaurants, frisbee golf, and an RC flying field. Geocaching is promoted in this park. We camped at Georgia Veterans Memorial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park, Saint George Island, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

If you took this campground out of it's location, it would be a nice, clean campground with a slightly better than average rating. Put it back on St. George Island and it's a real winner, especially for a winter camping location. The Island is 1/4 to 1/2 mile wide, with the Gulf on one side and the Bay on the other. Lots of hiking trails. The State Park itself occupies the whole Eastern end of the Island, so you are well separated from any commercial development. There are a couple of small grocery stores out of the park for necessities, but the prices are high. There is fuel (gas and diesel) available on the Island. Great long, isolated beaches are available for the State Park campers and visitors on the Gulf side, about 1/4 mile from the CG. Sites are generally flat, but not necessarily level. Fairly good privacy between sites, and most sites are long enough for a long rig. My favorite sites are 46, 45, 42, 40, 38, 30-34, 50, 1-3, 55 (not in order of preference). Verizon coverage = 2/5, OTA TV=3 major nets, satellite reception is easy. Park staff was very accommodating and friendly. Saw a small (24") alligator in the pond next to the dump station! Good dump station with a threaded hose for black tank inlet. This is a great location for a winter trip, but I suspect it may be more of a challenge in hot weather because of the mosquitoes; also, there are no air conditioners in the bathrooms (hot, humid showers). Firewood and ice are sold at the campground in the afternoon - convenient. There are several seafood restaurants/bars in the developed area of the Island, prices run a little high. We camped at Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Crooked River State Park, Saint Marys, Georgia

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

Reservations are non-specific, so get there as early in the day as possible to get a shot at the best sites. When you arrive, they will tell you that any sites that don't have red tags on them are available. What they don't tell you is some people don't remove their tags when they leave. So, check the exit date on the tags also, as those sites are also available. The campground is flat and level, great for bicycles. Most sites are large, except those close to the water. Those are cramped together. There is a very noticeable "sulfer" taste to the city water in the campground and throughout the town of St. Mary's. There is a good mix of long and short hiking trails in the park. Verizon coverage = 3/5, OTA TV=3 major networks, satellite reception is easy with lots of spaces in the trees. The Park has many activities ongoing year round such as kayak tours, guided nature hikes, etc., although they are a bit on the pricey side for what they are. We camped at Crooked River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The Sub museum in St. Mary's is small, but worth the small entrance fee. Most of their artifacts are from WWII, with a few from nuclear subs after WWII. If you're looking for good seafood, I HIGHLY recommend "St. Mary's Seafood and More" restaurant on the main road to town. Excellent food and prices. They have special lunch prices until 4PM.

Wekiwa Springs State Park, Apopka, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Wakewa (pronounced "Wakeva" by the locals) is a large state park in an urban area; large enough though, to isolate you from the neighborhood - all except the traffic noise which was always present in the campground. Most sites are adequate size, some a little tight, but there is pretty good privacy between sites. There are grocery stores nearby. The spring and stream from it provide a good place to swim and canoe/kayak. Rentals are available if you don't bring your own. Fairly long hiking trails and board walks through the wooded areas. Park staff were all friendly and helpful, except the one who checked us in on our arrival. He was very terse; must have just been a bad day for him. Upon leaving, we were confronted by a stopped up dump station drain; other campers said it had been that way for "days". I reported it and the staff seemed to be surprised. Maybe so. We camped at Wekiwa Springs State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

O'Leno State Park, High Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

If you have a long rig, either motor home or fifth wheel, stay out of the Dogwood loop; try to book in the Magnolia loop if possible. The scars on the trees in Dogwood are evidence that you don't belong there! Pull behind trailers shorter than about 25 feet should be OK, although some sites, and the loop road, would still be a challenge. I rated this park average. The bathrooms are clean and the day use areas are fairly nice, but the campground roads and sites need attention. The loop roads are dirt/packed sand, pot holed and narrow. The day use area is popular with the locals, and that's where I think the Park puts it's money. The hiking trails, streams and sink holes in the Park are mildly interesting, but worth the hike. We probably won't return here unless we just need to camp in the area for other reasons. We camped at O'Leno State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Big Lagoon State Park, Pensacola, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

I'm surprised at the overall average rating given for this park. I rate it higher than that. Sites are flat, most are just a little out of level, but not enough to really cause a problem with leveling. Most sites are hard packed sand/shells/rocks, but there are a few soft sand areas in some sites. No sewer at the sites, but a good dump station. Power and water are good. The bath houses are new and exceptionally clean, and the showers have good hot water and a "real" mix valve - no push buttons. The sites are generally fairly well separated, but small trees and scrub brush between the sites provide for good privacy. Lots of board walks and trails. Canoe and kayak rentals are available for paddling around in the salt marsh or along beach. Swimming areas are separated from the campground. There is constant sound during the daylight hours from training flights from the naval air station nearby, but not loud enough to be objectionable. Good TV reception, no heavy tree canopy so satellite reception is easy, Verizon cell coverage is 5/5. All kinds of shopping and supplies are close by. We camped here many years ago, before hurricane Ivan severely damaged this park. It has rebounded very well. It won't be that long again before we return. We camped at Big Lagoon State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Excellent seafood in an unpretentious "locals" place at Trigger's restaurant. Turn left out of the CG gate, go about 1/2 mile, Trigger's is on the right. They have an "early bird" menu with discounted prices from 4PM-7PM. The seafood au-gratin is excellent.

Twiltley Branch COE, Collinsville, Mississippi

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $10.00
Overall Rating:      

Typical COE park - excellent layout, well spaced large sites, good facilities. The campground has three main camping areas and is on a large lake. The terrain is flat - great for bicycling and walking. The campground is wooded with pines and hardwoods, but with little undergrowth. There is only one centrally located full bath house (with showers) for the campground, however, there are several permanent chemical toilets dispersed throughout the campground. The bath house has adequate parking spaces. Each site is equipped with a fire pit, a stand-up grill, lantern hanger and a picnic table. The sites are generally very level and are elevated for good drainage. There are hiking trails, but those are not well marked except for where some of them cross the roads. Consequently, they are not well used and "worn down" so they are hard to follow. Some of the trails disappear after a few hundred yards. Printed maps of the campground were not available when we checked in. Sites 1-50 are in the woods. Sites 51-62 are nonelectric and are open with no wind block. They are adjacent to a play field, boat ramp and basketball court. Sites 63-64 (not shown on the map) and 65 are separated from the other sites and adjacent to their own pavilion which would be a great place for a group RV camping event. 50 amp power and water pressure was good at our site. Verizon coverage = 3/5 bars, terrestrial TV reception = 5 stations. There is a "real" grocery store, hardware store, drug store and fuel within 3 miles of the campground. We camped at Twiltley Branch COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Interesting fact - This campground is a flood control area so it is used to hold excess water to prevent downstream flooding. There is a marker on a tree in the campground indicating the high water mark for April, 1979. The marker is about 11 feet high!

Parksville Lake R.V. campground, Benton, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

Small, intimate campground, conveniently located near many activities on the Ocoee and Hiwassee Rivers. No water at the sites, but plently of spigots around the campground; fill your fresh water tank before setting up. About half the sites can reach a water spigot with a 100' hose. This CG is in a valley not far off of Hwy 64. Beautiful old growth trees and a creek running behind some of the sites (see map). This is a "rustic" CG for those who love the woods. Sites are generously spaced. Take firewood with you - the ground around the CG is pretty well picked over. Sites are generally level and spacious, although the CG road is a little narrow. Some sites require a little more proficiency in backing in because of this. One bath house for the CG. It was clean, however, maintenance was a little behind. The day we left was the third day without toilet paper in either the men's or women's side. I would have rated it higher if not for this. The dump station is on a slope which prevents complete draining of tanks. There is no over-the air TV reception; satellite is spotty because of a thick canopy of trees. All-in-all, a very nice CG, I will definitely return. We camped at Parksville Lake R.V. campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Well maintained COE park. Very good layout with good spacing between campers. All the waterfront sites are low to the water, which makes for an easy kayak/canoe launch, or boat parking. One bathhouse for approx 50 sites. There is a large convenience store 1/2 mile outside the gate which has basic supplies, live bait and even a small restaurant; a real grocery store is approx 5 miles away in town. Most sites are very large and shady. There is a 1/2mile nature trail. TV reception is good - approx 9 channels, Verizon coverage is 3/5 bars.

Pickensville Campground COE, Pickensville, Alabama

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $11.00
Overall Rating:      

Typical COE park - good layout, well spaced. There are plenty of sites at this campground (176). All the waterfront sites are walk-up only. The waterfront sites on Riverside Loop are right on the water, however, there is a drop-off depending on water level so it would be difficult to access a boat pulled up to the campsite. Most of the waterfront sites on Waterfront Drive are like that also. The pull through sites 114-116 are back away from the water.

TV reception is excellent - all the major networks available. Verizon coverage is 2 out of 5 bars. The terrain is flat - good for bicycles.

Water pressure is high - bring a regulator.

Because of it's remote location, a large number of sites, and a large percentage of those sites walk-up only, this is a good campground to find a spot on a holiday weekend if you don't have reservations. We camped at Pickensville Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Gunter Hill COE, Montgomery, Alabama

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $13.00
Overall Rating:      

We have camped here many times and it's still an excellent campground. There are a couple of minor negatives, though: During July and August, on weekend nights the racetrack 1/2 mile from the campground is noisy. It's not too bad during the warm-ups and time trials, but during a long race (250 lap) it can become aggravating. The noise is loud enough you have to raise your voice during conversation if you are outside. A 25 lap race is not too bad.

The ants are pretty bad this year. I haven't seen them this bad at this campground before, but bring some ant spray!

Other than that, this is still a very nice CG. The layout is excellent with lots of space between campers and the CG is generally kept very clean.

TV reception from the Montgomery stations is good; good cell phone coverage; all types of shopping nearby. If the river water level is low (usually late summer), it's difficult to pull a boat up to the waterfront sites. The "new" side (lower numbers) are the best unless you want a more "rustic" campsite. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Doll Mountain Campground COE, Oakman, Georgia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $14.00
Overall Rating:      

The Happy Traveler's report of June 2016 is comprehensive and accurate. Although, I would like to add - sites 21, 22 and 25 are built in "reverse", so the "awning side" of many campers are facing away from the water and the view. Be aware of this when you are booking. There may be others that I didn't notice. The primitive tent sites are very nice - isolated and private. Verizon coverage is good - 3 or 4 bars out of 5. Sites 29, 30 and 31 have a trail to the water and a small beach for launching a kayak or canoe. Be careful on the trails, there is a lot of poison ivy and CHIGGERS! This CG is very similar in appearance and build to Woodring CG on the other end of Carter Lake. We camped at Doll Mountain Campground COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Grindstone Campground, Sugar Grove, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $16.00
Overall Rating:      

Great CG for the "rustic" camper. This is an old growth forest with lots of huge trees and a thick canopy. Lots of great trails, and access to the AT directly. Sites are fairly level and most are huge. The site base is gravel and drains well. Sites on the Cottontail loop are spaced wider apart than the others. The interior roads are a little narrow, but did not prove to be a problem in parking a long rig. This CG is remote and there is very limited TV reception, spotty cell coverage, and a heavy canopy on most sites that limits satellite reception. There is a wading pool fed by a cold mountain stream in the day use area - great on a hot day.
The dump station is a little tight to get into for long camping units. We camped at Grindstone Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
