Had a wonderful stay there for a month. Sites were adequate and the restrooms were clean. There is a pond there for fishing. Mostly for kids as its all real small stuff. The Indians stock the river with trout weekly so if you want to fish for them its pretty easy. The town doesn't offer much but the Casino but there is plenty to do in the other areas and in the Smoky Mtn Park. The work kampers were very friendly and sociable. Lots of Seasonal rigs but mostly they were clean with a few exceptions. Big open grass area with Concerts there almost weekly that were enjoyable to listen to. They also play Bingo every Thursday night. We will surly stay there again as this is a wonderful area to visit and the weather is great.

Park doesn't have a lot to pas the time of day at. However, the sites are above average size and all mostly;y pull thru's. Staff very friendly. Over half seem to be full time residence. There sites seem clean but must be the only park I have stayed at that allows you to tie you animal outside when you are inside. We had enough tree in out site that we could not use out satellite but many sites do have clear path to sky. The flea market on premise during the weekend is large and has a lot of shopping that can be done. We stayed a week but in the future would be a nice one or two day stop over if traveling through the area.

Very nice park. You park on Grass but sites were nicely sized. lake view is wonderful and there are some large fish in there. Had no issues with any utilities. Camp host was very friendly and stayed on top of things. Owner lives on premise so they are out during the day also doing things. Not much to do in Townsend but sea food restaurants int he area are outstanding. Savannah is just down the road. Would stay again if passing through the area for a couple days.

We stayed in the Preserve area and as far as the campground is concerned it is the best we have ever stayed at. Restroom, Clubhouse, Showers, Weight room, Pool (Hot Tub broke the entire time there) were all top notch. The grounds are manicured and the sites are large enough for us to fit our 45 foot motorhome with no problems. The issues here are more related to the people staying there. In the preserve they are very stuck on themselves and not friendly at all. However, the guest and people living in the older part of the park are very nice and always say hi. The people in the preserve could take lessons. We will stay here again if need be just because of the size of the sites and the easy of in and out.

Our rate is based on a monthly stay. We were in the area checking out wintering locations. This park is tops in the area. Pool is excellent size and the whole place is paved except the actual lot you park on is gravel. There is a paved patio and driveway to each site though. Mangers were very nice and accommodating. They have a pot luck monthly that the campground supplies Hamburgers and Hotdogs for. Laundry room is the largest we have seen. 10 Miles either direction you are in a major area with lots of stores and restaurants. Campground is 50% full time residents but there sites are beautiful and kept up. They also made us feel right at home and were not standoffish at all. We will definitely be returning as we made winter reservation for next year.

Very nice site and average costs. ALl sites up on hill are pull-through and quit large. You will have a neighbor parked behind you as they put two rigs per pull-through, but its still very nice. Wi-Fi is about average for campgrounds, Cellular signal was weak. Owners are always around and very friendly along with Work Kampers. They escort you too your site, which I always like. We will definitely stay here again as it is one of the only places that are close to Winnebago Factory that offer pull-throughs for larger rigs.

Not sure if I can say enough good about this park. Huge sites, level pads, good water pressure, and lots of hiking or biking trails. The work campers do an excellent job at keeping everything looking nice. Check in was easy. The only reason for not being a 10 is the fee for the park pass you have to purchase. They do give you a free pass for the toad but you have to purchase one for the motorhome. We will stay here again but you have to book months in advance due to all the local traffic staying there.

Nice park for a over nighter. Level sites. However, keep in mind you are at the top of a pass so the weather and wind are not the best. Views are fantastic though. The lady in the office came out while we pulled in and took us straight to our site. We would stay here again as long as its only a one nighter.

Wonderful park with the exception of how close the sites are to each other. They use one pedestal for every two sites so you are parked opposite direction on your neighbor. Pool is large and they have a nice BBQ at night. The office has a huge store. There is a lot for overnight people coming and going but is quiet most of the time. Most sites are pull through and you don't have to unhook you toad if you don't want to due to their size. Will definitely stay here again if ever passing through.

Fantastic park. Huge pool and spa, level Sites. Gated entrance for security. Big rig friendly to a point. Our 45 foot motorhome fit but was hard to park the car also. The sewer connection is at the very back of the site so had to have a longer hose. Has a lot of permanents but they all are at the back of the park and you really never see them. The temporary people are put in the front near pool and laundry. Trees on sites but they are close to rig location so hard to deploy slides without hitting a tree branch. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

Nice campground. Level sites and very clean. No problem getting satellite as there are very view trees. There is a lot of highway noise as you are only feet away from I-10. Wilcox doesn't have a lot to offer if you are staying more than a day or two. Owners are very friendly. RV wash just outside gate and good priced however with the wind and the dust having it washed and not dried just makes it dirty as you drive off. Most sites are pull-throughs and fit our 45 footer with no issues. Would stay again but only for a night or two and not the week we did this time.

Grading this campground is hard. It has so many nice things but the bad overrides a lot of it. Pro: nice large sites, lots of wildlife on the hiking trails through the woods, Close to lots of activities, a office staff that it tops and very polite, and a security gate for after hours. Cons: No pool, many full time residence some of which even installed swing sets on there lot for the kids, train every night blowing its horns, due to drought the river is almost non existent, many residence work so lots of noise and traffic in morning as everyone leaves for work. Hard for me to say if I will stay here again if ever in the area.

Was not impressed with this campground. It appears about 80 Percent of it is long term residence and they keep there sites in a very unorganized state. It also makes it hard to walk around as there is so much traffic driving through the park at night when everyone is coming home from work. The sites were long but had a lot of weeds growing through the patio. 3 ponds for fishing were very weed invested. It is close to amenities with Walmart just down the road. Either coming from or going to park you will be required to make a U-Turn on the main road as there is no access to the park from across the intersection. I had to drive through a fast food place with my 45 foot RV to make the u-turn. The work campers are very friendly and helpful. Will most likely try and find somewhere else if ever back in the area.

A very nice park and easy access to I-10. We stayed here a week and the camp hosts were great. Everything was clean. We were here during the massive floods in Pensacola and even though many of the roads around town were flooded, the park stayed high and dry. We had a pull in River site and even with our 45 foot motorhome it had plenty of room to park the car behind it. The only thing I have against this park is it has a small pool and no spa.

This was our first experience with a state park in Florida and I will have to say its one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. If all of them are like this Florida is a lucky state. Sites were large and even though I had a back in site, I had no difficulties of any kind with my 44 foot motorhome. Roads were wide and sites were well laid out with plenty of privacy between each on. lots of walking trails though the woods and along the river. Wildlife galore. it rained most of the time we were there but still had little to no standing water on our site. We will stay here again as we have already made returning reservations for next fall. You have to reserve long in advance for this park and its easy to see why.
