Oak Plantation Campground, Charleston, South Carolina

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

The staff member that greeted us was nice, allowing us to change sites to one with more shade. That was about the best part of our visit. They claim to be close to Charleston, and while that might technically be accurate, this location is not the most convenient. It is nearly impossible to turn left out of the campground toward Charleston, as there is constant traffic along the busy four lane highway. Speaking of the four lane highway, don't be fooled by the picture of the pool on the website. It's taken from a creative angle that doesn't show it's actually about 50 feet from the same busy highway. And to top it off, there's no bathroom near the pool and it closes at 7:30 PM every night. Have fun explaining that to your kids. The cleanliness of the bathrooms was average at best. The only other staff encounters were an overzealous lady running out of the office telling us to slow down, the campground owner riding around in his golf cart stink eyeing everyone, and the unfriendly girl in the office at checkout who rolled her eyes when I couldn't find my parking pass. Thanks for asking how our stay was by the way. If you're planning a visit to Charleston and any of the more popular beaches, I would definitely suggest finding a different campground. We camped at Oak Plantation Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Newport / I-40 / Smoky Mountains KOA, Newport, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $41.00
Overall Rating:      

As many other reviewers posted, this was a one night stay on a trip to another destination. First, the staff was very friendly and accommodating when we arrived. The bathrooms were clean and pool area looked decent. However, this was overshadowed by the overall hillbilly atmosphere of this campground. There were numerous rundown campers and several random pieces of construction equipment stored throughout the campground. The campground is also surrounded by sketchy mobile homes and is very close to the highway. We would not stay here again. We camped at Newport / I-40 / Smoky Mountains KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Destin RV Beach Resort, Miramar Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2015 - $90.00
Overall Rating:      

We recently stayed at this campground while on vacation in Destin, Florida. I'm not sure what classifies this campground as a "resort," but it is definitely in a good location close to the beach. The sites had concrete pads and were nicely landscaped to create privacy. The bathrooms were clean, although there is only one toilet in the men's bathroom. The pool is nice, but the light wasn't working which made it hard for kids to swim after dark. The so-called "private" gated entrance to the beach was broken the entire time we were there, essentially allowing anyone access to that area of the beach. There was also a gated entrance to the campground which was left open during the day. I was repeatedly approached by shady employees of an RV washing business trying to sell me their services. There was also a rundown ice cream truck that made repeated passes through the campground. At a cost of $90.00 per night, I don't think I would stay here again. We camped at Destin RV Beach Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Indian Trails Campground, Pardeeville, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our second stay at Indian Trails, this time for a fall weekend. We purposely stayed here for the indoor pool, which is nice but was freezing cold. It's also difficult to sit and watch the kids with the overpowering chlorine smell. This campground has a lot of amenities, including a miniature golf course with a steep price of $17.00 for a family of four. We stayed on a site at the west end of the campground, which backs to the wooded area and hiking trail. These sites are nice and wide, but are poorly designed with the electric at the front of the site and the water/sewer at the rear. They are also very uneven from side to side and require a lot of leveling blocks. Bathroom cleanliness was average, and showers are only one temperature and can't be adjusted. The dog park is great and the kids really enjoyed the BMX track. We will stay here again. We camped at Indian Trails Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Sunset Lakes Resort, Hillsdale, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2013 - $59.00
Overall Rating:      

While I agree with other reviewers this campground has nice amenities, I would hardly call it a "resort." We stayed here for Labor Day weekend, and I wasn't sure if I was in a hillbilly trailer park, on the west side of Chicago, or somewhere in Mexico. Plenty of loud golf carts and ATV's, a crowded pool with lifeguards not paying attention, and campsites that are right on top of each other. We would definitely not stay here again. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Motorhome.

Holiday Park Campground, Traverse City, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at Holiday Park Campground while traveling through the Traverse City area. This is by far one of the nicest campgrounds we have ever stayed at in Michigan. This park has both rentals sites and permanently owned campsites, and we were fortunate to get a site on the island. The island sites are right on the water, with great views and friendly neighbors. There is a nice swimming beach with canoes and paddle boats, multiple playgrounds, and the staff is very friendly. The maintenance staff was constantly cleaning bathrooms, picking up trash and keeping up on the landscaping. It was also a short drive into downtown Traverse City and only 30 to 40 minutes to the Sleeping Bear Dunes. We camped at Holiday Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Mackinaw City / Mackinac Island KOA, Mackinaw City, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at this KOA during a trip to Mackinac Island, and the location is great. This KOA is a short drive to all the area attractions, and even offers a free shuttle to the Mackinac Island ferry. The bathrooms, showers and pool were clean, and they had a good camp store with some local souvenirs. We had a full hookup site which was relatively level, my only complaint is the firepits built into the ground very close to neighboring campsites. Another complaint, and it's minor, was the very expensive laundry facilities. We camped at Mackinaw City / Mackinac Island KOA in a Motorhome.

Munising Tourist Park Campground, Munising, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

The best part of this park is the location and beautiful views of Lake Superior, but the rest of the campground is definitely disappointing. The sites are mostly worn out grass and dirt, and the bathrooms are only relatively clean at best. We didn't even try the showers, as there were so many spider webs and mosquitos it wasn't worth the risk. The "playground" consists of three rusty slides and swingsets, and the dumpsters were overflowing, but at the least the staff was friendly and knowledgable about the area. We camped at Munising Tourist Park Campground in a Motorhome.

City of Houghton RV Park, Houghton, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed at the Houghton RV Park on a trip to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. The location was excellent, right outside of downtown Houghton, and was very convenient to sights in the area. The RV sites were spacious with nice permanent shelters, and had great views of the river. There is a nice playground and city park just outside the RV park, our only complaint would be a lack of bathrooms and showers. We camped at City of Houghton RV Park in a Motorhome.

LaSalle / Peru KOA, Utica, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2012 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here one night for a group outing during the week. As soon as we arrived, the staff was very friendly and allowed us to choose from a couple different sites that would best accommodate our group. Shortly after arrival it started raining, and the owners were nice enough to allow us to watch the Bears game on the game room TV, even after the lobby had closed. The bathrooms and showers were very clean, and our sites were nice and level. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

Hi-Tide Beach & Campground, Leland, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2012 - $45.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for Labor Day weekend, and were hoping for a better experience than last time since they are under new management. As soon as we arrived, we were told we would be charged $2.00 extra per day to run the A/C in our RV. There was no information provided about activities, amenities, checkout time, etc. The sites were cramped, and our sewer backed up the first night just in time for dinner outside. The lake and pool were fun with the exception of the inappropriate rap music blaring from the office and a $5.00 daily fee to rent life vests. The bathrooms were disgusting (even in the office). The miniature golf ($1.50 per person) was run down and the dumpsters are not conveniently located to all sites. We will not stay here again. We camped at Hi-Tide Beach & Campground in a Motorhome.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp-Resort at Raintree Lake, Scottsburg, Indiana

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

We stopped here for a one night stay on our way back to Chicago. We selected this Jellystone campground because we were traveling with young children and wanted a kid oriented campground where they could unwind, play, and swim. To our surprise the majority of the park was seasonal sites with an older clientele. The pool and game room were closed at 7:00 pm leaving very little for the kids to do after dinner. The pool did not re-open until 11:00 am and check-out was at noon leaving little time to swim before departing. There was a $3 per person charge for mini-golf which seemed excessive considering the condition of the course. Because we got there on a Sunday afternoon and left Monday the kids never even saw Yogi and there were no activities. If it were not for the Passport America discount this would have been very overpriced. Bathrooms and campground were very clean and it did have a nice playground. Not your typical Jellystone campground. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Camp-Resort at Raintree Lake in a Motorhome.

Luxury RV Resort, Gulf Shores, Alabama

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

I would not describe this as a "luxury" RV resort. However, the nice pool and being within walking distance to restaurants and the beach made this a good place to stay when visiting Gulf Shores with young children. The bathrooms were clean and the staff was friendly. We did lose power twice while here, during heavy rainfall. Luckily it came back on within a short period of time. We would stay here again.

Owassa Lakeside RV Park, Evergreen, Alabama

Date of Stay: June, 2012 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

We stopped here on our way to Gulf Shores, Alabama and needed a place for a short overnight stay. It was late Sunday night and no one answered the phone initially, but the owner was nice enough to call us back to let us know they had spaces available. This is definitely not a destination campground, but for a quick overnight it does the job. Close to the highway, clean bathrooms and friendly owners. We paid $18 with Passport America.

Indian Trails Campground, Pardeeville, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $50.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for Heroes weekend, and even being full, the campground was quiet and did not feel overcrowded. The kids enjoyed the clean swimming lake, indoor pool, hiking trails and BMX track. The main building has a nice camp store, with food, ice cream, candy and video games. The staff was very friendly, and were always keeping up on the cleaning. We camped at Indian Trails Campground in a Motorhome.
