Turtle Beach Campground (formerly Gulf Beach Campground), Sarasota, Florida

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $57.00
Overall Rating:      

Very small old park right on the beach on Siesta Key. The park is very narrow and difficult to maneuver in with travel trailers. For that reason, it is very restrictive on trailer sizes allowed. The park is also VERY popular and difficult to get a reservation in. This especially so during "Snow Bird" season. Since it is a county owned park, local residents are allowed easier access than outsiders.

This is a great park for families but rules include no pets and no open fires. The park has free wifi, full hookups but no cable. It also has laundry facilities and ice. It's a fun place to stay for a few nights. We camped at Turtle Beach Campground (formerly Gulf Beach Campground) in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

A nice perk for us is walkable access to 3 different restaurants ranging from $Turtle Beach Pub and Restaurant, $$ Turtles Restaurant (our favorite), and finally $$$ Opheilia,s fine dining. Many other options are a short drive away back to U.S. 41 or north on Siesta Key.

Check out the Ringling Mansion and Museum while in the area.

Tomes Mobile Home Park, Council Bluffs, Iowa

Date of Stay: August, 2014 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

I do not recommend this Park. Owner insists on parking the rig himself. Office is often unattended. Phones unanswered. Will not take reservations. Unfriendly. Caters to construction and long term renters rather than over-nighters or short term. We camped at Tomes Mobile Home Park in a Travel Trailer.

Charlestown State Park, Charlestown, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

After a disappointing stay at another park, we moved here to finish our stay in the area. This is a large state park with a very nice under-utilized campground. The park has facilities from primitive to full hookup. There are 3 large, clean shower/restrooms. If you aren't an Indiana resident, a one time $7 fee is required to enter the park. We are enjoying our stay here. We camped at Charlestown State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Louisville North Campground (formerly Louisville Metro KOA), Clarksville, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground was a huge disappointment. Due to the proximity to the interstate and downtown Louisville, it has a lot of overnighters but also has an apparent resident population of long term campers. The park is extremely cramped with units so close together awnings and tow vehicles stick out into the street. There is no grass or shade. The interstate and busy railroad are right beside the park, so it is noisy from that. We had a group of six adults next to us that staged a 24 hour drinking party which was noisy and messy all night long. Management did nothing. After their first party night, we moved to another park. On a positive note, the staff was friendly and helpful. The restrooms were clean and functional but were kept locked. A key deposit was required to get access. We were unable to get either the wi-fi or TV cable to work. Water pressure in the park is advertised at 75 psi, so if you come, bring a pressure regulator. We camped at Louisville North Campground (formerly Louisville Metro KOA) in a Travel Trailer.

Willow Lake Recreation Area, Woodbine, Iowa

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Willow is a county park in Harrison county. It is located approximately 5 miles from Woodbine off of SR30. It is heavily used by locals and especially families. Nice clean laid back park on a small lake with fishing and swimming beach. Newer section lacks shade and is close showers. Park has cabins to rent as well as camping facilities. Park does not have a dump station. City park in Woodbine has dump station that is used by this park's campers. This is a hassle for longer stays. We camped at Willow Lake Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Lake Manawa State Park (Closed), Council Bluffs, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

Considering the location near Council Bluffs with all the recreation possibilities, it is a real shame that this park is the black sheep of the Iowa State Parks system. It has been slated for a major overhaul for several years but continually gets bumped back. It has a reputation of being used by near homeless people and undesirables. The campground is located on one of the largest lakes in this part of the state and there is abundant wildlife in the park. Good bike and hiking trails. Close to shopping, restaurants, theaters and casinos. It could have a lot to offer. Iowa should be ashamed of itself with how this park is maintained and used. We camped at Lake Manawa State Park (Closed) in a Travel Trailer.

Pottawattamie County Fair Campground, Avoca, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $15.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is owned and operated by the county fair board and has little funding. It is not well maintained and some of the campers here are long term for various reasons. It is a safe but crude park. Mostly used by over nighters and people visiting in the area. This corner of the state is very short of decent campgrounds. We camped at Pottawattamie County Fair Campground in a Travel Trailer.
