Hernando Point - COE, Hernando, Mississippi

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

Although this is a beautiful campground, maintenance seems to be lax right now. Grass is in need of cutting and office is closed. Restrooms are mostly clean but some of the showers smell a little of mildew. The first loop (Sites 1-10) is closed right now and it looks like sewer connections are being installed. There is a sign on the road indicating that another loop will be closing started Oct. 1 for sewer installation. There is a sign at the office indicating all the hiking trails are closed due to some flooding. We camped at Hernando Point - COE in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

1. If driving a big rig you might not want to go down the hill past site 35 without checking it out first. Turn around might be difficult if the sites at the bottom a occupied. 2. As with most wooded campgrounds, be prepared to battle ants.

Gulf State Park Campground, Gulf Shores, Alabama

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We had reservations for Monday through Thursday nights but when the weather turned extremely cold (for the Gulf Coast) we called and were allowed to come in a night early. The reservations and check in staff were very friendly and helpful, but the real gems at the park are the park naturalist and her staff. They took us on a fantastic First Day Hike to see the bald eagles in the park and provided daily educational sessions at the Nature Center. Our last visit to GSP was in 2013 and many improvements have been made since then, especially in hiking/biking trails and boardwalks. Unfortunately, the weather was too cold to make full use of the trails. We hope to return again soon. We camped at Gulf State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Bellefonte Storage & RV Park, Hollywood, Alabama

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for a week for $120 while working as volunteers helping rebuild a church in the area that was destroyed by a tornado last year. The park was quiet and all hookups worked well and the WIFI was GREAT! You should enter by the Bellefonte Road entrance since there are low hanging limbs if you come in by the office from Hwy 72. The only issue we had was that even though the gravel pad looks solid, the soft ground under the gravel allowed our leveling jacks to sink so we had to raise them and put large wooden pads under them. There is no staff on site so you have to go the the Texaco station four miles north on Hwy 72 to check in. We camped at Bellefonte Storage & RV Park in a Motorhome.

If you like catfish or barbecue, do not miss eating at Mud Creek BBQ and Fishing Camp about 2 miles north of the camp. We ate there twice and both time the food was delicious and very reasonably priced.

Two Rivers Campground & Storage Park, Big Sandy, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for a week while helping build a church in the area. The campground has 6 sites, one of which is a pull through. The entrance is gated and you must call ahead to get the gate code. The office is only occupied Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10am to 4pm. At other times the park is managed by Two Rivers Realty. Our site (5) was level enough that we did not need any blocks under the tires, but we had to back into the site a little farther than the gravel to make that happen. Park manager was very friendly and helpful. Restrooms are new and well maintained. There is one men's room and one women's room. Each has one shower, one sink and one toilet. Each is lockable for privacy. Even though the park is also a storage rental business, it is very quiet and there was very little traffic. Power, water and sewer all worked well and were conveniently placed. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Two Rivers Campground & Storage Park in a Motorhome.

Camp Sumatanga, Gallant, Alabama

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for four weeks as part of a UMC NOMADS volunteer mission project and would love to stay longer. Last year part of our project included updating the pavilion and bathrooms closest to the RV sites so they are now like new. There are 10 full hookup sites, three of which have 50 amp. All sites are level and the utilities worked well, except on the hottest days when everyone was running air conditioners the voltage on the end sites dropped below 105 volts. Some of the sites are shaded and some are in the sun. The camp has several hiking trails including a paved trail beside the lake that is about a mile long. The camp staff are very friendly and helpful. Be aware that on weekends the pavilion next to the RV sites is rented out for gatherings. On two weekends of our stay there were weddings and on the other weekends there were church picnics. Not a problem for us. This is a beautiful camp in the spring and fall. Winter is usually mild, but summers are hot and buggy. Also, since this is primarily a church camp, during the summer the camp is filled with, well, campers. Also, be aware that cell phone service is very weak here, but the WIFI was great at the sites. The camp has installed a booster for Verizon Wireless at the camp office. We used a cell booster in our rig and it worked well. We will stay here again. We camped at Camp Sumatanga in a Motorhome.

Goldcoaster RV Resort, Homestead, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed here for one week while touring the Everglades and Keys. All residents we met were friendly and welcoming, especially at the non-denominational service held in the club house on Sunday morning. Utilities worked well and were well placed on our site. We felt safe walking around the park even at night. We camped at Goldcoaster RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Blackwater River State Park , Holt, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2013 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Really enjoyed our stay. Checked in on Wednesday afternoon and checked out on Sunday morning. Since we arrived before 4 pm we went straight to our reserved site and then went back to check in between 4 and 6 pm per instructions. Rangers and host were very friendly and helpful. Site was gravel but perfectly level. A few other sites in the campground are concrete. All utilities worked well and roads were in good condition for driving or bike riding. Restrooms were clean. It was quiet the first two nights but louder on weekend nights since the campground was almost full. Good area for biking, canoeing and hiking since it borders the state forest. The park is pet friendly, but pets are not allowed on the beaches inside the park. However, we were able to let our lab swim by driving out to the end of Boat Ramp Rd in the state forest. Milton is less than 15 miles away and is worth the drive just to get donuts and blueberry turnovers from the Milton Bakery. We hope to stay here again. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Motorhome.

Seven Points Campground COE, Hermitage, Tennessee

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

We spent 4 nights here and enjoyed it; although, there are not really any hiking trails. We had to hike along the road to the day use areas. Utilities worked fine and facilities were clean. Streets are easily traveled by larger rigs. Some of the lakefront sites were flooded when we arrived. Very friendly hosts. We stayed in site #49 and even though the site description stated that it was too narrow for slides we were able to extend slides on both side with no problem. Site was very level. This is a great place to stay if you need to be close to Nashville. We camped at Seven Points Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Tims Ford State Park, Winchester, Tennessee

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Great park for hiking and geocaching. Hiked 9.5 miles in one day on the trails here. Paved trails are also great for biking. We managed to get our 36' RV in and out OK, but there are several low hanging limbs we had to dodge along the way. Water pressure was great and had no problems with power. Unfortunately there are only a few sites that are suitable for a RV our size. Stayed in site #1 and had to use blocks under the front wheels to level the rig. Verizon voice and data worked fine. Staff was friendly and helpful at check in. We would have stayed longer if our schedule had allowed it and would stay here again. We camped at Tims Ford State Park in a Motorhome.

Paul M. Grist State Park, Selma, Alabama

Date of Stay: March, 2013 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

We really enjoyed our stay here. The park staff was very helpful and even provided us some information to help us find some of the many geocaches hidden in the park. We checked in and were allowed to pick any open site. The site itself was level, and all utilities worked perfectly. Every site is waterfront. There was a fire pit on each site and firewood for the gathering all around the campground since a tornado passed right through the area a year or so ago. On Saturday night, 9 of the 11 sites were taken, but it was still quiet. The restrooms and showers were clean. Both restrooms had one shower stall that locked and one that didn't. We spent several hours hiking the trails around the park and rented a boat for a while to row around the lake. Verizon phones and aircards worked great. Wifi was available from the office and worked at site 3 but might not be reachable from site 11 without a booster. We recommend the park to anyone who likes remote places and quiet nights. We camped at Paul M. Grist State Park in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

This was our second stay here while working in the area. Staff was very friendly and helpful on check-in, and the site was just as we remembered it. All utilities worked well, except wi-fi stopped working the last night. Didn't really matter because our Verizon data service worked well. Restrooms were clean, and grounds looked great. Hope to come back when we have more time to enjoy the trails and hunt the rest of the geocaches. We camped at Gulf State Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Taylor Bay Campground, Land Between the Lakes NRA, Golden Pond, Kentucky

Date of Stay: May, 2012
Overall Rating:

While looking for a place to stay "away from it all" we ran across pictures and information about Taylor Bay. It looked like such a place, so we planned a few days in LBL based on staying here. We arrived just before dark the first night and fond most of the pads anywhere near the water were occupied. We set up on pad 27. Even with all our blocks we could not level our motorhome. After we got set up the best we could, one of the extended permit residents came over and introduced himself. He was very friendly and helpful and offered us the benefit of his extensive local knowledge. The next morning we were greeted by a herd of over a dozen fallow deer right outside the rig. Later in the day pad 20 became available. It was more shaded, more level and closer to the lake, so we moved. During the week it was fairly quiet even being almost full. On Friday night and Saturday the activity (and noise) significantly increased, but not enough to bother us. Even though Taylor Bay was not as "away from it all" or backwoods as we had hoped, we enjoyed the stay and hope to visit here again, but probably during cooler weather. I did check in on the pit toilet while there and it was fairly clean for a pit toilet. The roads leading to and inside the camping area are paved and in pretty good condition. This is a first-come-first-served, no reservations area but there was always space available during our stay. A backwoods permit is required for each person. It can be obtained from either welcome station during work hours and at some of the campgrounds after hours. We got ours at Hillman Ferry campground. After you have your permits, there is no charge for camping. There is supposed to be a 14 day limits, we were told that unfortunately that was not being strictly enforced. We camped at Taylor Bay Campground, Land Between the Lakes NRA in a Motorhome.

Lakepoint Resort State Park, Eufaula, Alabama

Date of Stay: April, 2012 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

Great park. We stayed in a back-in site in the Barbour Loop because when we arrived on Friday afternoon that loop was empty. Sites are well spaced and mostly shaded with easy access to the trails. Roads are paved and great for cycling. Through the weekend some of the other sites in the loop were taken, it still remained quiet. We visited the other loops and found them more crowded. No problems with electricity or water, but the connections are on the passenger side. Verizon aircard worked well. Campground had recently been mowed. We would have rated the campground higher except for the registration and check-in. During that process we talked to two different employees - one of which was very friendly and helpful. When we first went to the marina to check in we were told we had to go pick a campsite, leave something to mark that it was taken then drive back to register. In other Alabama State Parks we registered then just called back to advise which site we were in. Even so, we would not hesitate to stay here again and will recommend it to others. We camped at Lakepoint Resort State Park in a Motorhome.

Gulf State Park Campground, Gulf Shores, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2011 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here while attending meetings in the area. Staff was very helpful on check-in and allowed us to pick a site. Utilities, including Wi-Fi at the site, worked well. Roads through the campground are easy to maneuver and sites are easy to back in. Since we were here for work, we did not use any of the recreation facilities but we did hike some of the trails. This is a great place to stay for people who like the coast. We camped at Gulf State Park Campground in a Motorhome.
