Stayed with a FUMC group. Lots of the sites have concrete pads and are owned but there are spots for overnight and long term rental. There is a very nice area next to the office with a kitchen that we used for cooking and for eating. The den/book area is there and also a nice sitting area. There is also a very large facility where they play bingo, have church, and other activities. There is a fenced dog area. Many of the sites have large oak trees so there is shade. The pool and pool area looked nice and clean but we did not use it. We stayed 3 nights and when we walked we could smell the orange blossoms in adjacent areas. There is a golf course not 1/4 mile down the road and there is shopping and fast food eating several miles down the road toward Wauchula. We enjoyed our stay. We backed up on 2 slices of concrete but the site itself was grassy.

One of the best Passport America policies in the book and one of the best locations for an overnight in and out of FL. Intersection of I-10 and I-75 (off I-10 a few miles). Nice people who run a very tight ship and a clean campground. Get 10% off with your receipt at some good, local restaurants if you are in town long enough. Always stay here coming and going to South FL. Concrete pads, cable, Internet, easy off and off interstate. No frills but that is OK.

Date of Stay:

Close to I-20 and the Mississippi River; free transportation to the Casino for gambling and eats; friendly staff, low price for a concrete pad with 30 amp (all 50 amp were already taken). We stay here everytime we are through here in the mid to late afternoon and have never been disappointed.

First, the positives--close to downtown; shuttle to and from the French Quarter several times a day-$6 per person, friendly staff, some discounts available here at a better rate than the vendor--the Hop On Hop Off bus for example, new and upgraded eating BUT this place is hard to find towing a toad with a big motorhome and the rv park itself is in an industrial area. Probably better to call and get directions rather than use the gps-we used map quest, google maps, AAA maps, and GPS maps and none worked really well. And the main drawback--it is like being in the dust bowl of Kansas and I am being totally serious. The roads had gravel many years ago and now just dust, dust, and MORE dust no matter how slow people drive. If it is raining,well then, it is mud. This has not improved since the last time we were here. We don't plan to stay here again unless the interior roads are paved and/or gravel(lots of it) has recently been put down. There are plenty of poopy bags for man's best friend and a grassy, fenced in area as well. I would rather have paid $5 more per day and had a nice park interior. The rate we did pay was Passport America.

Rate reflects Passport America. This is a handy park between Columbia, SC and Spartanburg, SC. Right off I-26. Not a whole lot around as far as eats--Blue Ocean, Hardees etc is at exit 54 and downtown Clinton is about 7 or 8 miles so there you have eateries as well as gas/grocery stores. We stay here going and coming from FL. The 2 main drawbacks is that many spots are not level and it is often full with area construction/installation people as this seems to be an area of a lot of new construction. Therefore, plan to call in advance for a spot. Many of the rigs looked familiar from when we were here several months ago and there are usually none or only 1 or 2 vacant, even during the week. The staff is friendly and helpful.

This is a beach and marsh accessible park about 25 miles off the main hwy 17 about 40 miles from Charleston. It is very laid back and rustic. The bathroom building is new and in very good condition. If you don't like salty tasting water that imparts its salty flavor to your tea or coffee, bring you own drinking water or plan to bring it. Remember that is the same for ice cubes as well. Having said that, the sites in the Oaks area are fairly private. There is 50 amp available which is not at the Ocean campground--they only have 30 amp. No sites are concrete, but are fairly level. The big downfall is that the roads in and out are not being maintained AT ALL. There are potholes so big that we are hesitant to drive our rig through--it might just disappear. If you like your vehicle and rig a rockin' and a rollin' you will love this campground. It rained 2 of the 3 nights we were here and the mudholes were so deep that they held water the entire time. These roads need a lot of work. We will not come back. There are parks that are closer in to Charleston that are no more expensive and are in a lot better shape for campers.

The Kelly Road coming in was a little narrow for a 40 foot motorhome and also some low hanging limbs. UPS had pulled partially off the road to make a delivery and a truck was park on the opposite edge of Kelly Road so we just had to stop until the delivery was made. Sites are gravel and pretty level tho we did put blocks under our 2 right tires. Everyone gets shade either in the morning or afternoon. The park appears clean and well maintained. It is not far from NC or SC and is 15 miles from Helen, GA. There is fishing, rafting, golfing, horseback riding, antiquing, and of course eating available fairly close. We were here with our Good Sam group for a long weekend. The campground sponsors a fish fry on Thursday night--they furnish the fish and hush puppies, you bring everything else.

This KOA is convenient to eateries, movies, grocery and gas stations and is right off I-85 but one hears no noise at night. The sites are large and spacious and well maintained. The pool and laundry is spotless and the bathrooms are, too. This is one of the better KOAs we have been to and one of the cleanest. The staff is friendly and helpful with suggestions of where to go and things to do. The Freightliner school picks you up for their class and drops you back off in the PM.

Date of Stay:

Close to I-40, Waynesville, Maggie Valley and a day trip to Cherokee to the casino or to Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge. Well kept grounds with clean laundry and a store that is being set up. Drainage is good; we know that because it poured rain the whole weekend our group was there. Could do nothing outside--too cold to tube in the stream. There are several covered pavilion areas where we were able to meet and stay dry. Church services are on Sunday. People were friendly and in spite of the rain we had a good time. Went antiquing since it was rainy and ate at Bogarts in Waynesville--there is one in Sylva as well. Would definitely stay here again--hopefully with the sun out so we can go horseback riding and go to Ghost Town in Maggie Valley. If we hadn't recently seen it, we would have toured Wheels of Time in Maggie Valley.

We were here for 4 nights. We camped in a 40 foot motorhome and had no problems getting into site #19. Every site has a grill and picnic table. All are right on the lake. The rate reflected is for a senior and disabled military. There are water and 50 amp hookups. No sewer. There are adequate dump stations close by and near to garbage disposal sites. We used the restrooms which were old and stained but pretty clean. I wore flip flops in the shower. Plenty of hot water. In 4 days, I only encountered l other person in the bathroom. I don't think many people use the facilities. The park is well maintained and mowed. There were lots of people on the weekend but only about half full on Thursday and Sunday. Clemson is about 8 miles away for shopping and the University (the John C. Calhoun home on campus is worth touring). Plenty of restaurants there as well. In another direction is Seneca and a little further back off the interstate is Anderson. There is another COE park on this side of the lake, same road; just a couple miles down the road. This park is seasonal and opens May 1 and closes in the fall. Playgrounds for the kids but the emphasis is the lake for swimming, jet ski, boating, etc. We would stay here again. Matter of fact, we extended one night. Check out the Blue Heron in Clemson for an excellent meal. Maybe pricey for some but the quality and service is excellent.

The rate quoted is PA. I do not understand why this is called a resort. I never saw a swimming pool, only a lake. It's a winding way off the interstates that would be difficult if not impossible to find at night. Turning onto Lake Rd to access the park, the road is wide enough but paved only in the middle with dirt and gravel on either side. No foliage to scratch the camper but NOT a campground we would have stayed at if we had seen it in advance. There are only 2 bathhouses for nearly 200 spots. Some of the access roads are dirt and most of the spots are Very unlevel. A travel trailer or 5th wheel with lots of leveling devices might make out OK. We never got level so our refrigerator did not run right and we could not open pocket doors. The staff was very nice and this could be an excellent campground but it is not for a motor home over 30 feet and/or with a toad. We would never stay here again. So, campers beware.

Date of Stay:

A surprisingly pleasant park in an ideal location between Wilmington, DE and Philadelphia, PA.There appear to be a number of amenities here but we were in the area for a conference and to sightsee so did not avail ourselves of them. Close to the Interstate exit with groceries, eateries, and other essentials close by. There is also a Camping World for RV supplies within a couple of miles. Sites are gravel and level and there are cement pads. Places to walk the dogs and a place we will utilize again if we are back in the area.

Date of Stay:

This is a park designed for long term residents with only a few sites for overnighters or short-termers so reservations would probably be a must especially during the busy summer season. We were in the area to see family so the limited number of sites was OK for us, as we were not there to use their facilities. They are gated so at night, one has to use a key card to get access to their site. Staff is friendly and we will stay here again. Sites could use a little leveling but we made out OK, and they are suitable for class A homes. No tent camping is allowed.

Date of Stay:

Gave this park a 7 cause there is a lot to do here; so much is new, including playground and new sites with cement pads and grass laid. This is going to be a nice resort with many different levels of accommodation, and the water is east and west just a few hundred steps. We were only here overnight and it was windy, cold, and rainy. They "tried us out" on one of the new cement pad sites so we were further from the beach but that was OK as we were not going to the beach anyway. Close enough to walk to several restaurants, and since we didn't want to unhook the toad for the night, it was great to have a pull-through. Not all campgrounds have this option. If we are back this way, we will certainly consider this park at which to stay.

Another pricey KOA for the facilities of the park. This is about an hour from downtown DC and the Baltimore, Annapolis area so the location is good. Just be sure to follow the GPS and road signs to get to the park. From when we were here last July and suggested they put in more 50 amp spots, nothing has changed. Still fewer than 10 of those and they have been full since we have been here with a few other spots from tent campers on up here at the park. They do have a shuttle to the area attractions and because this is a 20 minute ride from our family, we will continue to use the park. The price reflected is WITH our rewards card so for those not members it will be 10% higher. The weather has been great--70s this time of year and pleasant to sit out or tour on foot the area attractions.
