The rate reflects an out of state W/E/S site. Davy Crockett Birthplace State Park is an old KOA park purchased by the state and run by a dedicated staff doing the best they can with what the state gives them. Recent renovations have added 15, or so, 50amp sites. Those border the Nolichucky River. The remainder of the park's sites are old, 30 and 20amp sites with low power. Our surge guard shut off our 30amp power multiple times due to low voltage. Campground roads and sites are paved but in poor shape for the most part. Most sites are no where near level. The pool is Olympic sized and seems quite nice. Campers pay half price ($2)to use it. The red clay ground does not absorb water. If there is rain in the forecast, expect standing water. The camp-host staff, and 2 out of the 3 park rangers are wonderful. The office does not open 'till 2PM but you can find the camp host if necessary. We'd return if we could get a 50amp site.

We stayed in site 36. Had reservations for 4 nights, liked it so much we extended for 3 more. The only minus for this CG is that there are no sewer sites. It still gets a 10 in our book. Clean, grassy, concrete pads, paved roads, and very nice CG hosts make this place one of the nicest we've stayed in after 2 years on the road. Convenient to Atlanta, if cities are your thing, but nestled far enough out in the country to give you the woodsy feel. We will be back, when ever we're in the area.

This is a perfect stopover from I-10 or I-75. Campground roads are wide and paved. Sites are extra large, level, gravel with some grass. Most sites have at least some shade. The grounds are well kept and have easy biking or walking to the various areas in the park. There is a museum (Stephen Foster), a bell tower that rings the hours and plays Stephen Foster melodies, an activity area when you can see quilters, weavers, stained glass makers, blacksmiths, and other crafty exhibits. Not all are active every day but certainly enough to keep you occupied. The gift shop is better than most. There is only one drawback and that is there is no water recreation available in the park. We would definitely stay here again.

Wow! The rate reflects a three night for $75 special that Endless Caverns had going this fall. The campground was upgraded to all 50/30/20 amp full service sites in 2006. There is no cable TV here but you can request satellite friendly sites when you make reservations. All sites are terraced into the mountain and large. Lots of elbow room here. Gravel roads and level gravel sites are the rule. There are caverns here. Campers get $3 off the cavern tour fee of $16. We didn't take the 1.5 hour tour but the fee seemed reasonable. Endless caverns is about 10 minutes off of I-81 and very much worth the trip. It's clean, modern, and safe.

The 76-Artillery Ridge is so close to the actual battlefield you can walk to it (in the area of Little Roundtop) or take one of the horseback tours of the battlefield, that the campground has available. The campground is clean, safe, and has a good staff who are willing to help out when possible. We had heavy rains during our stay and the campground had numerous deep puddles, but given the amount of rain, that was expected and drained rapidly. All in all, a good place to stay while visiting Gettysburg. The charges reflects a Passport America rate.

This small ocean side park has some seasonal campers but generally caters to transient trade. The seasonals are very friendly and go out of their way to assist new arrivals in any way they can. There is a huge beach, if the tide is out. Otherwise, well that's just mother nature. Sites are nicely mowed grass with sand and gravel pads. There is a good restaurant (also owned by the campground owners) at the entrance to the resort. There is only one shower in each restroom. There are no sewer connections, but if you stay for at least a week you are pumped out by the honey wagon twice during that period. Otherwise there is a dump station behind the office. There are some 50 amp sites, but most are 30 amp. Probably the least desirable part of the campground is its pet policy. As was mentioned in a previous review, there is one small dog walk area behind the office. At registration campers with dogs are informed that dogs must make it to the dog walk area to relieve themselves. They should be walked down the gravel road and not be allowed to do their business in another campers site or anywhere else that isn't the dog walk area. Oh well, sometimes we made it and sometimes we didn't. I'm sure there is a good reason for this extreme policy, but we felt it was excessive. All in all, this is a great place to stay, and we will return.

Price reflects Passport America membership. This park is near FunTown, Old Orchard, and many Maine beaches. The owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating. The campground is nicely kept, it has 2 pools, a rec hall, and nice playground for the kids. There are many seasonals and Park Models, but all are kept in great shape and and the folks are very friendly. Anytime we are in the area we WILL stay here. It's a great place.

Carolina Crossroads is a great topping point for the haul from New England to Florida. This new park sits on the NC/VA border and is within 4 minutes of I-95. There are both pull thru and back in sites available. The park has Wi-Fi for free and cable for an extra $3 per night. The park is still under construction with pool/rec hall still being worked on. Management is excellent and willing to help out. I'd highly recommend this park.

This Florida State Park is better than recent reviews would have you believe. Cons: All sites are 30amp and none have sewer connections. All but 4 sites are sand, and ours gave us no leveling problems. There is a minimal amount of road noise mainly noticable when emergency vehicles were using sirens, or straight piped motorcycles were on the road near the CG. Pros: The vegetation between sites affords a great deal of privacy. All camp roads are paved and wide enough for any rig to back into their site. There are some "trails" to the showers and restrooms but if the signed routes (cement sidewalks) are followed the access is easy. Showers are older but tiled and never did we feel they were inadequate, dirty, or uncomfortable. Hot water was plentiful and with all other showers in use, never did we run out of hot water. This is not a destination park. You won't find a lot of activities, any beaches, or even a camp store. There is a boat launch ramp, into the Estero River, in the park. It is a great base camp for visiting Ft Myers, Naples, or any of the island beaches and tourist attractions. There are many restaurants, grocery stores, outlets and "box" stores are within a 10 minute drive of your campsite. We would have no qualms about returning here in the future.

This Florida State Park is terrific! Large sites with water and electric. Many sites are oceanfront. The sites are level and packed gravel/coral with vegetation walls between most of the sites. Larger motorhomes may have a problem fitting in some sites, but with creative positioning coaches up to 40' should be able to take advantage of this beautiful Keys park. Towns and stores are within 10 minutes both north and south on Route 1. The park's staff are friendly and very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and other needed facilities. Two minor problems. The first is, as everyone else has said, there are no sewer hookups. When your tanks are full you will have to raise the jacks and go to the dump station. The second problem is getting reservations. We made ours 11 months in advance using three computers. Only one computer got through. Make Bahia Honda State Park a stop when you are in the Keys. You won't regret it!

Silver Palms is a beautiful, new RV resort. The price quoted reflects a 3 night "come check us out" package rate. This is a resort that is well worth looking at if you are RV site shopping. They have lots for sale as well as long term rentals. All the facilities are new and fit the up scale image they want to project. The staff and other campers were very friendly and willing to answer any questions for you. Silver Palms is high up on our park choice list. We will be back.

Torrey Oaks RV and Golf Resort is a nice park unfortunately located way out in the country. That's not a bad thing, but it does take some driving to get to other Florida attractions. Sites are average in size and have, for the most part, two concrete tracks for your coach's wheels, with grass in between. The rest of the landscaping consists of brown grass, sand, and gravel. Don't know if the brown is from recent frosts or is natural for this time of year. The campground staff is very friendly and helpful. In fact, we were escorted to our site and then the escort proceeded to put blocks under our jacks for us. The campground has about a fifty-fifty mix of transients and seasonals. Everyone was very friendly. There was a pot luck dinner one night, an ice cream social another, a cocktail hour another, and all the golf you could want on the 18 hole course surrounding the campground. If I had anything to complain about it would be a couple of yappy little dogs that didn't get to bed before midnight, a few dog owners who felt they didn't have to pick up after their pooch, and a bad odor coming from the tap water. I think it was sulfur. I wouldn't want to stay here for a season but a few days or a week or two is perfectly fine.

Rolling Ridge is a very nice campground and not just because of the price. The grounds, restrooms, and showers were very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful and not at all pushy about selling sites. If you wanted to hear about them they'd be glad to talk t you but no hard sell here. Some sites are set up with pavers but most are sand and gravel with a small concrete patio. The park is about 30 minutes away from the Orlando attractions and there are plenty of grocery stores, and restaurants in the area. We would definitely return here.

Price is on National Park Senior Pass - Driving here you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere and there couldn't possibly be a campground down this residential road. The signs say that there is, and sure enough, 7 Points Campground finally appears. The CG is a Corps of Engineers campground, and as usual, is very nice. The staff is very friendly... both shifts! (they work 4 days on and 4 days off) Those folks really work hard at making your stay enjoyable. The sites near the lake (#'s 21-41,odd-are on the water, even #'s are across the road from the water, remainder of the sites are on the loop road but with no real water views). Some sites are 50/30/20amp and others are 20/30 amp with water and there is a dump station on the entry road. 7 Points is a nice campground and located 15 or 20 minutes from Opry Land and many other major stores including Camping World, food stores, etc.

The most unusual part of this campground is its location. You are right there, on the banks of the Mississippi. If Tom Sawyer himself, floated down the river on his raft, you'd be able to exchange waves with each other. If you don't see Tom, there are plenty of tugs pushing barges around to keep you occupied. Beale Street, in downtown Memphis, is 10-15 minutes away, and Elvis' house is about 10 minutes further. All in all, nicely located to see the sights. The staff is friendly and helpful. The laundry, is clean and, believe it or not, free. Why? The manager said that they don't want to beat up their campers with extra charges. Okay by me. Wi-Fi is free, but low in strength. We used our Verizon Air Card and it worked very well. A nice campground for an overnight or a few days.
