This is a somewhat nondescript park which is also very clean, inexpensive, and well-located. The people in the office are extremely nice and helpful. They arranged for us to have our RV washed by a guy who did a great job. The sites are level and the hook-ups work. There is no charm to this park and the only amenities are a small fenced dog area and a pond, but it is a fine place to stay.

The best reason to stay at LazyDays is to have your RV serviced or to look at a new RV. Really not meant as a resort and doesn't function as one. But you can see a most astonishing array of super expensive shiny RVs! Everything is paved, everything is very tight (you can almost touch the next RV from your window), everything works, they pick up your trash and give you coupons for breakfast and lunch. LazyDays employs half the certified RV techs in Florida and their sales and maintenance facilities are impressive.

Excellent campground, I think run by the state (or county). In a very large park that offers mini-golf, bike trails, tennis courts (big complex), a large amphitheater, etc. Great walking, jogging, dog-walking. Large staff works overtime to keep it clean - lots of day use outside of the actual RV area by picnic-ers, families at the play areas, etc. The RV park itself was spotless and located on a large manmade lake with lots of birds. Roads were perfect and Rv spaces paved and level. Hook-ups worked fine. Would definitely stay at this park again. The whole region outside the park is congested, trafficky and lined with shopping centers and mega-stores - the park is like an oasis of calm.

This is a fantastic campground if you want to kayak in this area - you can rent kayaks and canoes at the campground and get right on the river. The whole area abounds in fishing charters, guided paddles, manatee watching, etc. As a regular campground it is mediocre at best. The roads are sandy, not level, and have plenty of potholes. No cable. Wifi is ok. Service is dependent on who checks you in - we were 10 minutes late and received no map, no wi-fi code, and a 30-amp site when we had reserved a 50-amp site. This is a very laid-back, old Florida kind of place. The sites are scattered in the trees. There are spiffy new motorhomes and 5th wheels that have not been moved in years. Not my type of park but for a couple of nights to see the area, it was fine.

This is a very average KOA, just east of Tallahassee. It is mostly a large sandy field with hook-ups. The roads are sand/dirt and not smooth. The sites are not completely level but close enough. Hook-ups all worked fine. People in office very nice and efficient. The place has no charm but is OK for an overnight. If you are bothered by road noise, don't stay here - it is right on I-10 and you will hear 18-wheelers all night.

If you don't have dogs, this is a perfectly fine campground. It is extremely well-maintained and clean and the owners are helpful and efficient. If you do have dogs, this place is a treat with all kinds of special dog amenities like several fenced parks, agility training equipment, obedience training, dog swimming, doggie wash, homemade dog treats, etc. Sites are shady and have plenty of space.

Very pleasant campground. Extremely clean and all hook-ups worked fine. Did not try their WiFi because we have our own. All seasonal sites were unusually well-kept - really a well-maintained park. There is a small camp store with ice cream. Our only complaint: this CG is incredibly far from the major highways. It is very, very inconvenient to access, especially at the end of a long day of driving.

Good state campground fairly near I-90 and Buffalo. Lots of weekenders with their kids and dogs. There are 3 camping loops: 50 amp, 30 amp, and tents. No water or sewer at sites, electric only. There are sewer dump stations available. Location on Lake Erie is exceptional. Park staff is very helpful and nice. Only complaint is too many poorly behaved and unsupervised kids and dogs.

This campground is on a nice piece of property. The maintenance is poor. You are allowed to choose your own site from those available (many or most are taken by seasonal trailers) and we did, only to find that the first 2 that we chose had defective electrical connections. Worse, when we tried to call the 24-hour help line, no one answered after several frantic calls. In fact no one ever called us back. There are a lot of weeds here and there and I wouldn't be eager to jump into the small indoor pool. The walking trails through the 3 loops and the woods are pleasant and there is a pond with geese. The bathrooms and showers are old but clean.

This is a very nice small KOA. It is well-organized and the staff is helpful. There are flowers in small pots at each site, they pick up the trash, and the hook-ups all work fine. Even the water pressure is good. There is a small but clean dog run (fenced), a pool, and a playground. There are a lot of trees and the overall feeling is peaceful and well-maintained. The only thing to complain about is the road noise from I-40, which is white noise but definitely there. A very pleasant overnight stop.

This is not an RV park in the normal sense. It is a group of hook-ups that some guy has installed just off the main road through Oxford, MS. He mostly caters to people in town for football games, graduation, etc. There are no amenities other than hook-ups. Traffic noise is constant. Location is very convenient to most of Oxford and the closest "real" RV parks are the scenic Corps of Engineers parks on lakes miles away. There is usually a 3 night minimum but we managed to get a negotiated one-night rate of $75 which is clearly ridiculous (but we paid it). I think the guy charges whatever he can get. The hook-ups work just fine.

This is a beautiful piece of real estate. As an RV campground, it is very basic. No septic and no 50 amps. There are several camping loops with dirt RV pads arranged in a circle. Many spots have lovely views of the lake (Hartwell). There are lots of mosquitoes, lots of deer and lots of guys drinking beer (there is a no-alcohol rule but no one pays any attention). It is far from the interstate for an overnight stop, but it is very scenic.

This is not a "regular" campground, it is more of a small town made up of permanently installed fifth wheels and trailers. But it is perfectly fine for an overnight stay. It is organized along Lake Gaston, a pretty lake between Virginia and North Carolina, and offers lots of water-based recreation. The hook-ups work well and the concrete pad is level. There are not very many temporary hookups so it might be a good idea to call ahead if you are traveling at a popular time. The people who work here are very nice and busy getting ready for their huge Halloween haunted house and party. No, thanks...

Great park with a lovely campground. This is one of a series of Virginia parks along the Potomac and it has everything: water park, marina, camping, hiking trails, disc golf, etc. Perfect for dog walking. Hook-ups all worked ok, but water pressure was poor even with almost no one in park (October). Lots of deer and squirrels and birds and other wildlife. Wonderful place to stay but here is a warning: plan your route and arrival time carefully. Highway 1 in particular and I-95 in general are horrible. Do not drive through DC in rush hour and try to avoid construction if you can.

We usually don't like KOAs, but this one is unusually nice. It has all the usual kid-friendly KOA amenities: pool, rental bikes and other rental toys, a jumping pillow, big playground, etc. But it is also just a pleasant campground with lots of trees, very well-maintained and well-organized. Because we were here in October the campground was mostly empty and there were deer and birds instead of kids and pets! There is even a nice (small) dog run with mini agility equipment. I'm not sure it would have been as great over July 4th, but it was really pleasant.
