Every campground in America should model themselves around Top Sail. Enough said.

I am absolutely amazed at the good reviews this campground has received. We thought it was horrid. Yes, there was a hurricane in 2004. And yes, there has been some recovery. The simple weekly maintenance this campground needs is very obvious. Grass cutting, edging around the pads, blowing the debris from the pads, cleaning out of the BBQ grills, cutting down the dead trees, watering the newly planted trees most of which are already dead. We had to clean up our site before we set up. There is probably nothing that can be done about the sand burrs, but be aware they are everywhere and your pets will easily get them stuck in their paws. Although the bath houses were rebuilt in 2004, they were nasty when we arrived and "things" were growing in the showers. We never saw a ranger drive through checking on things. Some of the sites have some nice distance between them, some are right on the main road and right next to your neighbor. The check in process was ridiculous and the staff was not friendly at all. We are lifetime residents of the state of Alabama and are truly embarrassed by the neglect of this campground and the first impression visitors are presented. We will never return here: ever. We now fully understand why it is called the "REDNECK RIVIERA." It was not a pleasant experience.

Loved this RV resort. Convenient to a lot of tourist activities and the Texas Hill Country. The only negative was the interstate noise. We could hear it at night inside our RV, but we were on the end closest to I-10. Would not let that deter us from coming again. Loved the Museum of Western Art in Fredricksburg, The Wildseed Farm, Luckenbach and the Texas Wine Trail.

Nice natural surroundings and hiking paths. There are some very nice sites on the lake. We stayed in the loop at the top of the hill in the woods. Very few people were there due to the cool weather I presume. Nice and quiet. We have been in this campground before on a summer week-end and it is covered up. I would recommend a Monday through Friday stay to avoid the crowds. If you love nature and peace & quiet, you will love this campground in the off season.

Enjoyed the stay. Very nice river walk. Sites are very spacious. Right across the river from Natchez, MS. which offers a lot of history and tourist activities. Natchez visitor center is right across the bridge on the MS side. You have to bring your own fire pit if you want a campfire on your site. Not any privacy between sites, but the sites are spread out pretty decently. No cable TV, but we don't watch TV anyway. Will visit again sometime.
