Only campground in town. Sites range from huge to tiny, level to unlevel. No reservations so it is a hit or miss of what you end up with. Town squeezed in as many as they could in some sections. Some sites have unobstructed views of Lake Superior, some have too much brush/trees to see the lake. Lost many of their old growth beech trees a few years ago. Doesn't appear that township has any plans on fixing up sites in this cash-cow campground. Long way to drive for a tiny spot that sits in the sun.

Date of Stay:

The owners obviously spent a fortune on hard-scape to put this campground on a slope down toward the water. It is severely lacking in green, though. I almost felt like I was in Arizona or something. Lots of pavement, rock, but not much shrubbery or trees. Staff was real friendly, facilities fantastic. View was awesome. Great Wi-Fi.

Was here fathers day weekend. This place was hopping. Management did a superb job keeping things going. A real family place. If you don't like kids, stay away. Pool could use a makeover to double its size.

Date of Stay:

Good stop over place. Didn't find the hills inside the campground to be a problem. Had one front tire off the ground to level.

Date of Stay:

Nothing special. Located in a very busy area. Main road down the middle with a lot of spots off the sides. They love pea gravel. It was too thick on many spots. Several spots are not level at all, even though the surrounding area is not real uneven. They love rules here. They need to get rid of 98% of the speed bumps. Ridiculous. 4 of them near the office. Office worker jumped out in front of us when leaving wanting to know what site we were on. Won't stay here again.

Nice no-frills campground easy off I-95. Fantastic Wi-Fi. Was able to update all firmwares, finally. Satellite friendly (DirecTV) on spots 4 and 5. Really liked the atmosphere. Lots of Spanish moss. Owner seemed to be running around all the time taking care of guests and greeting new ones. Trash picked up promptly. Rule asking campers to turn off AC when not in RV is real awkward. Owners need to accept this as a cost of running a campground and should not make campers feel guilty about busting rules for leaving AC running when gone. Remove the rule. I don't want to come back from sightseeing and have to cool down a 100deg RV. I will come back to this campground. For rail fans: This campground is real close to the Folkston Funnel. It is as close you will get for having a nice campground.

Called ahead to make a reservation in their new area. Was told they weren't needed, just come in. There was only 1 spot left when we showed up. We were in the new area. Open field, gravel spots. Full hookups. They are close to level but not really. One front tire almost off the ground. Would hate to be in this spot when it rains, as the gravel was getting real thin in areas with only dirt showing. No Wi-Fi signal in this area but real good cable.

Date of Stay:

Nicely taken care of. Premium spots are really nice, but should be for the price. Road in from US-1 (Kennett Square) is an adventure. Had some brush rubbing on side of rig.

Date of Stay:

Noisy. Manager is not friendly at all. Over priced. Do not complain, they could care less if you camp here or not. They are the only game in town and know it. Pass it up if you can.

This is our second visit. I would not camp here except family is close. Stayed in premium site this time. The sites have nice patios but overall seem very neglected. The patio is paved while the parking spot is gravel. They are huge but are starting to get overgrown with some weeds. For the price, I expect better grounds maintenance, especially in the premium sites. Roads in campgrounds are still horrible. Some long term residents.

Drive in from US-1 was horrible. Roads in the campground were horrible. Some spots really close to each other, some OK width. Cable on my spot was horrible. Had to use a tripod to get Directv. Wi-Fi was real slow. Nice appearance in campground. Clean looking. Camp here because it is the only place around.

Date of Stay:

Not worth the high cost. Site was not level. Place looks ratty, probably because so many spots were hacked out of the hillsides. Needs a dozer and several trucks of gravel to bring it back up where it should be. Cable was unusable on lower channels.

Date of Stay:

Nice manager. Low rating was for the amount of unlevel sites. I had my front left tire hanging in the air in a handicap paved spot. Went to move but my other options were just as bad. Barely any signal on Verizon but just enough to make my tethering seem like dial up with a Wilson AMP and trucker antenna. No DirecTV in my spot. Not likely in any other spots. Had to stay here as it is about the only place close to the interstate in this area. Would stay somewhere else if I could.

The lady that currently has the contract to run the place is doing a SUPERB job. The city did a fine job selecting them to run the place. Now, who is in charge of capital improvements to this place? It needs trees, trees, and more trees. The contractor stated that some RV folks don't like them because they hit their RV's. Why not hire a professional to recommend tree placements in this place. It is nothing more that a rock filled field. Placement of fire pits is horrible and need to be redone. As much money as the city makes on this place you would think they could soak a few bucks back into it.

Date of Stay:

They lost almost all of their trees due to hurrican Ivan, many years ago. They replanted with slow to grown no shade palms. Not sure why owner did not reinvest in local pines because it is sure not "gulf pines" anymore. Staff was superb. Real noisy place, almost all of it adjacent to I-10. I stayed because I had to. This would not be a vacation destination for me.
