Up the Creek RV Camp, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for two nights as per a recommendation from a fellow camper. This is our second time in Pigeon Forge but first at this camp ground. Very cute. Small but clean and off the main drag but not too far. No bathrooms or shower or pool which was fine for us at this stay. Very pretty setting. Would recommend this to friends and would stay here again. We camped at Up the Creek RV Camp in a Travel Trailer.

Smoky Mountains are near by. Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are must sees. We also went to see the Dolly Parton statue along with her home town and her home town cemetery. Very interesting. Lots to do.

Walnut Hills Campground (formerly Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA), Staunton, Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

We stopped here for one night on our way home as a last minute decision. It was recommended to us by a fellow camper at our last stop. I would not recommend this place. For the price, it was not worth it. It was a former KOA so you still see all the yellow signs with Good Sam stickers placed over the KOA Logo. The roads are not in good shape. We were placed right next to the pond. It has scum on it and algae. Not pretty to look at and gave off a funky smell. In addition to that the ducks were all over and pooping too. The site was nothing great. Grass was not cut all around the campground or around the bath house. Our site was not level and was gravel and mud. Check in was ok but when asked how to fill up tires she told us. We did that only to find out the air machine which is right outside the office has a sign "out of order." Shouldn't this worker at the reception desk know this before having us maneuver our rig all around? Very hilly campsite. I can see how people fall in love with this place for the beauty but I have seen state parks, especially in Virginia, much prettier and half the price. I did use the shower and while in them said to myself, "not bad for a state park..." then I realized this was a private campground and was not impressed. Old and small with "fresh" paint on them. I would NOT stay here again. Did nothing for me except charge me way too much for my stay. Look for state parks next time. Just my opinion. We camped at Walnut Hills Campground (formerly Staunton / Walnut Hills KOA) in a Travel Trailer.

Twin Lakes RV Park, Cumming, Georgia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here one week while visiting family. There are a lot of "full timers" or "workers" staying for a long time. Our location was not the best in the park but it did what we needed. Walking around the park there are some more beautiful sites but, for what we needed, we were fine. There is a huge lake that has two fountains in it and they light up at night. It's pretty. The sites around the lake do not have sewer. They do not have restrooms/bathhouse or pool on site. They also don't have laundry which was a bit disappointing. Down the road about 2 miles is a laundromat which we used two times. Great location. Not too far from Atlanta. Would stay here again but would ask for a shaded location as we were in full sun. They do only accept cash or check for payment but, at $35 a night (no tax), it was a great deal. We camped at Twin Lakes RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Reed Bingham State Park, Adel, Georgia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We only stayed here one night on the way from Florida to Warm Springs Georgia. Wish we had more time to explore this park. Only about 6 miles from the interstate so it makes a great stop over. The only additional cost is $5 for parking fee since we are not Georgia residents. Big open spaces, no sewer but that is fine for one night. We camped at Reed Bingham State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Anastasia State Park, St Augustine, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

Check-in is a bit crazy. You need to pull over to the left, right when you enter to park your camper and then check in. We didn't do this and got a little attitude from the ranger. Other than that, great park.

Sites are a bit small, however, once you are set up, they are cozy and make you feel like you are in a jungle. The beach is only seconds by car, still in the park. Not crowded. Walking distance is fine. White sand until you get to where the tide comes in. Very peaceful and great for photos. Road are a bit narrow to navigate (but I wasn't driving so that was fine). Beautiful city. I would stay here again. Book well in advance. We camped at Anastasia State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah, Georgia

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for four nights. Full hook up. HUGE sites. The ONLY drawback was we arrived a bit early and they made us wait in an over flow parking lot until 1:00 which was check in. We were not the only ones waiting. Silly rule but I guess a rule is a rule.

Has a nice nature center on the grounds and a Jr. Ranger for the kids to do. Brand new bath house. Laundry was convenient too. Bring your bikes to bike around. Would stay here again. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The Refuge on Roanoke Island, Wanchese, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $65.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed her for three nights so did not get the discount for staying four nights. As mentioned earlier, the manager...not rude but at first is a bit standoffish. Once he starts talking with you, super friendly and helpful...actually won't stop talking. Only a handful of sites for non-permanents which were right along the water. Very pretty. Lots of board walks to look at the water and scenery. Only a few miles from Outer Banks. We did the Lost Colony National Park on the island and on the Outer Banks did Wright Brothers National Park and the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. We went to Coquina beach and were very happy. No charge to park or to use the beach. Would stay here again. We camped at The Refuge on Roanoke Island in a Travel Trailer.

Myrtle Beach State Park, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for three nights in July. Great place!! Lots to do and such a beautiful beach and pier. They have a nature center and activities but we were too busy to do. Beach was perfect right by the pier. At night walk out on the pier and watch all the people fishing. Look for the sharks swimming there too. Great place to watch the sunset too. The CCC was there which was nice to see the history. The sites were VERY narrow and navigating was a bit difficult but all in all a great place. We did have a family of raccoons living above us but they didn't bother us. If you are coming into the park on Sat or Sunday warning that they only have one lane to check in and the one time we came back into the park on a Sunday, it took 25 minutes to enter. Come later or earlier? Great place to also watch the sunrise from the beach and/or pier. We took a drive 20 minutes down to Huntington Beach State Park. GREAT place to see alligators across from the castle entrance. They walked right across the road. Very peaceful. Would stay here again! Just heard that they are making some sites also full hook up. We camped at Myrtle Beach State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Oak Plantation Campground, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2018 - $63.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here in July. Hot. Ask for shade if you plan on coming in the summer. Nothing major wrong with this park...but....kinda hard to explain. Not that the workers were totally rude but not the friendliest either. Wifi was TERRIBLE. We were placed in a full sun spot in the back. Asked to change but they didn't have anything and if we did change they would not refund if it was a cheaper price. Our fault for not requesting it. Getting out of the park, turning left...very dangerous. Still about 25-40 minutes from downtown Charleston. There is a "fishing" pond behind the store that has alligators in it. Never saw any alligators but got "yelled" at by a store worker for walking back there since the house next door is private. We didn't walk on the private property but they weren't too nice about it. Things like this. I also didn't like that I had to pay a non-refundable deposit just to reserve it. Why? Honestly don't know if I would stay here again. $63 a night is very expensive for this place. Too many speed bumps. Too many speed bumps. Too many speed bumps. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Pocahontas State Park, Chesterfield, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here two nights with water and electric hook ups. We never ventured into Richmond. Such a beautiful park, secluded and a lot to do. We visited the CCC museum at the park, attended a free outdoor concert in the amphitheater (got lucky they had one the night we arrived) and used the free passes to the pool. The pool is also used by locals and since it was so hot, the pool was crowded. Would defiantly stay here again. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Acorn Acres Campground, Bozrah, Connecticut

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here during Easter break. It was very early and no other camp grounds were open yet. They graciously allowed us to stay in the winter loop for only $30 a night for full hook up. It was terrible weather (snowed). Sure, the camp ground is a bit dated and could use some updates but the person we spoke to on the phone to arrange the reservation was very pleasant. Her husband was the one who showed us to our place. I would stay here again. Friendly people, the few that were there. Thank you for a great vacation.

T. O. Fuller State Park, Memphis, Tennessee

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This is a hidden gem right outside Memphis. We stayed here for three nights and it was perfect. Not a lot of people and the camp host, right when we arrived, told us our site that we had reserved would not be a good one for our larger trailer. He found us a "better one." He didn't need to do that but he did. The Ranger also came around to offer me a refund since I had to reserve two time (changed itinerary so needed to add a day and was easier to just make a whole new reservation). Told me I over paid and refunded me some money. Didn't need to do that. VERY peaceful and out of the city life. However, close to Graceland (10 minutes) and Beale Street by 20 minutes. Did laundry here and very cheap and great machines. Would definitely stay here again if in Memphis and/or recommend this to people. There is also a community pool that campers can use for a small fee. We didn't use it but looked at it and it was large. The only issue was we arrived on a Sunday afternoon and the office is closed...we had to knock on the door and luckily a lady in there was able to tell us what site we were on and to notify the camp host that we were coming. No biggie, however. We would have just driven to the campsite and looked for the camp host. We camped at T. O. Fuller State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We drove an hour into Arkansas to Dyess to see Johnny Cash's Boy hood home which is taken care of by Arkansas State Univesity. THE BEST SIDE TRIP! The town was founded only in the early 1930's as part of FDR's New Deal. So much history and so interesting.

Seven Points Campground COE, Hermitage, Tennessee

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

This is the second time staying in this campground. We love this place and especially for the value. Last time we were there (four years ago), it had recently flooded so we did not utilize the water section too much. This time, we used the beach/swimming section each day. Beautiful sunsets too. Showers were clean. People stayed to themselves. It is close to Nashville and other touristy places but far enough away to feel like you are still camping. Can't recommend this place enough. They only ways to make it better would be to put sewers in (which as a state place, I know they won't) and wifi. We camped at Seven Points Campground COE in a Travel Trailer.

Dayton KOA, Brookville, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $54.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for two nights while visiting the Dayton Aviation National Parks. When we arrived, we were not greeted by the staff. I had to tell her my name four times before she understood. Then I asked other staff members how far to the National site. They had no clue. This is a major reason why people come to Dayton. I asked if our site was level and she said, "I think so, yes, it is." The little yellow cart took us to our site and left. Normally at KOA's, they point out where the water and electric is even though we know it. The little things to welcome you. Not here. We tried to make our site work but it was very unlevel. My husband went to the office and they were quite upset. They told us to choose another one. We choose another one close by. Again, VERY unlevel. Most campers here are up on blocks, one side very much unlevel or the front tongue way down. My husband called the office as we were still hooked up and the office was far away. They got quite upset saying they have NEVER had anyone complain about the unlevel sites. They yelled at my husband telling him to just PICK A SITE. How are we to know which sites are available and not? Finally, after 90 minutes, yes 90 minutes, a KOA cart came and escorted my husband with such attitude to a totally different section of the park. Then the owner came over quite upset telling my husband never in his 15 years has he had someone complain about any of his sites. He said he would be right back. We are still waiting for him to return. Most KOA's are extremely friendly and helpful. Not this one. They seem too arrogant and upset that we had a 35 foot travel trailer that we needed to level. They couldn't be bothered. We are upset because they didn't seem to take our concerns to heart but only threw back how great their KOA was. Would NOT stay here again. Internet is also terrible: kicks you off every 3 minutes and you have to re-sign in. We camped at Dayton KOA in a Travel Trailer.

San Antonio KOA, San Antonio, Texas

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for a week. The only thing I can complain about is the pool. It was the 4th of July weekend so maybe that is why it was so over crowded. Too many people at one time in the pool, adults were in there drinking alcohol and smoking and the one night I went down there, someone had their own music blaring super loud. No one from KOA came out to control this. Otherwise, very convenient to San Antonio and all the places around. Front gate that locked and a convenient bus stop out front, we didn't use but saw many using. Would defiantly stay here again. Shout out to staffer who showed us to our site and welcomed us to San Antonio. Unfortunately he left the next day for his vacation. We missed him. We camped at San Antonio KOA in a Travel Trailer.
