This is a large, family-oriented RV park. If you have a big rig and you want full hookups and satellite access, however, this probably isn't the best choice of parks. In order to have those amenities, we had to take one of the strangest sites I have ever encountered. It was a long pull-in (back-out) site with brushy trees which narrowed the width. After disconnecting our truck from our fifth wheel, I had to drive the truck through the RV park playground in order to get it back out onto the access road. Also, I had to do a bit of tree-trimming to ensure that we didn't scratch up our fifth wheel when we backed out to leave. Our site was a level, gravel/sand site with fire ring and picnic table with good hookups. The access roads were paved. There was a small heated swimming pool and a several nice play areas on attractive grounds. The WiFi was decent, but not extraordinary. Glass/plastic/aluminum recycling was available on site (no paper).

The nightly rate reflects a weekly discount for staying at this RV park for five weeks. This is a nice RV park right across the bridge from Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park. Our site was a level, gravel pull-thru site with good hook-ups and a fire ring. There aren't many trees in the main area of the RV park, but that does make it easy for satellite reception. There was a good sized heated pool but it did not always seem very clean. The WiFi was decent and usually functioning. The RV park is on the Acadia NP shuttle route which made it easy and inexpensive to access Bar Harbor and the National Park. The access roads, within the RV park, are gravel which makes for some pretty dusty conditions. Paving of those roads would greatly improve the experience of staying there. There is limited recycling available within the RV park (Maine redemption recyclables only) and it is difficult to find full recycling services in the Bar Harbor/Ellsworth area.

This RV park is in a nicely maintained grassy, green setting with level, gravel pull-thru sites and gravel access roads. The hookups are very good and there is a nice swimming pool. It is convenient to I-95 and it was easy to maneuver within the park with our 43 foot fifth wheel. The WiFi was fair. The gravel access roads make for dusty conditions. This park would be a lot more desirable if the access roads were paved. There is recycling available, on site, with the exception of paper. We would likely stay here again if we were in the area.

This RV park claims that it is "The Best RV Park in the Nation", but after our 3-day visit, I am still trying to figure out why. About half of the park is filled with park models which are occupied by returning summer tenants. Yes, it has a waterpark and seems very family friendly. Yes, the staff were very helpful and friendly. But, in my opinion, that is where the positives end. Almost all of the RV sites, outside of a few paved "supersites" are on grass (not gravel, but grass) and I am not a fan of that. We have a large fifth wheel, and we had no business on the grass. We tried pulling into one of the grass sites and got stuck in the mud. It took myself and a crew of five Bethpage staff about an hour of hard work to get us out. After that, I said that I had to have one of the "supersites". To the credit of the Bethpage staff, they put us into a "supersite" without charging us the extra cost typically required of these sites. Even if you get a "supersite", they are very tight--you are right on top of your neighbors. There are fire rings at the "supersites" but I wouldn't start a fire in one for fear of burning down my neighbor's RV. The hookups were good and the WiFi was good (although the RV section of the park was almost vacant, and I am not sure how good the WiFi would be in the peak of summer when the park is full). There is no recycling available on site, and for the huge size of this park this is unacceptable. Bethpage does not offer a military discount, and this does not reflect positively on ownership. We stayed during the offseason, so we only paid $47 per night, but I cannot imagine paying the high rates charged during the summer for RV accommodations that are way overpriced and overhyped. I seriously doubt that we would consider returning to Bethpage.

This is the third one-night stay that we have made at this RV park in the past several years--all as stop-overs as we have headed north from Florida in the spring. It is a very convenient park for an overnight stay--just a mile off of I-95, but far enough away to avoid highway noise. The sites are level and gravel. The hookups are good, but the sewer input was at the far back of our site and required two hoses to reach it (about 25 feet). The numerous shade trees make the RV park beautiful, but it can make it difficult to get satellite reception in some of the pull-thru sites. The WiFi was sporadic and there is no recycling at the park. As I am not a fan of KOA parks, in general, so I am pleased that this park is no longer affiliated with KOA. From my perspective, it appears as though the entire RV park has been upgraded since leaving the KOA chain. We would definitely stay here again if we were traveling through the area.

The nightly rate we paid reflects a weekly rate. This is an absolutely beautiful park with level, spacious concrete sites with grassy areas and picnic tables The access roads are asphalt. The hookups are very good with the exception that the sewer connections are not screw-in. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This park has a lot of rules, so if you don't like rules you might not feel comfortable. However, the rules are what keeps this park a top-of-the-line destination. The only negatives, that keep it from being a perfect RV park, are the facts that the WiFi was sporadic (decent to terrible, depending on the day and time) and that there was no recycling available on site. You can cart your recyclables to the St. Lucie County solid waste facility (about 10 minutes away), but a park this nice should provide recycling on site.

The average nightly rate we paid reflects the discount we received for staying three months. This is a very expensive place to stay considering the quality of the RV park. You are paying for for your proximity to downtown Key West (1o minute drive). On the positive side of things, the staff was very friendly and helpful, hookups were good, our site was level, WiFi was fair, and recycling services were provided. On the negative side of things, it is obvious that very little of the RV park revenue is reinvested into infrastructure. The site sizes reflect the reality of RV sizes from 30-40 years ago. If you have a big rig, maneuvering at Boyd's is very tricky. Grading and drainage is poor. When it rains, the sand sites and uneven access roads become a muddy mess with a lot of water that ponds for days. During out three month stay, they were trying to improve the WiFi but it improved to fair (at best). The WiFi system simply isn't robust enough to serve the number of campers at Boyd's. Recycling services were also implemented during our stay. The problem is that they don't have enough recycling bins and they were often overflowing by mid-week (they are only emptied once per week). Boyd's has a social activities coordinator, and she worked very hard to implement social experiences. The problem is that she was only one person and she had other responsibilities at the RV park. As a result, there weren't a lot of social activities and campers took it upon themselves to coordinate independent activities that did not include everyone staying at Boyd's. This led to the development of several cliques, and if you weren't in the clique you were left out. Key West has some nice winter weather and some beautiful places, but given the price of Boyd's and the quality of the park, we most likely will not be overwintering here again. The experience did not justify the cost. There are much better values for overwintering in south Texas and southern California.

This is a very nice RV park choice when traveling through Florida. The nice, large RV sites are level asphalt and the access roads are also asphalt. The utility hookups are very good, The staff are friendly and the WiFi is good. Unless you are looking to go boating in Okeechobee (a very nice boat ramp is right around the corner), I am not sure what else you would do in is area for an extended stay. You are kind of in the middle of nowhere. We would definitely stay here again when traveling from the Tampa area towards Miami/Key West, however.

The daily rate reflects a monthly rate with a military discount. This was our second extended stay at Tampa South. Tammy, the manager, is the absolute best. The RV sites are level with crushed shell bases. The access roads are paved asphalt and very well maintained. The utility hookups and WiFi are good but not great. Full recycling services are available on site. For the most part, the people who stay here are a great bunch of folks. There are definite cliques among the regulars, however, so it is possible to feel left out if you are a newcomer. The main detractions to the park are the no-see-ums that will eat you alive in the evenings if there is no breeze and the very high mineral content water. Even with a water softener, the poor quality of the water is overwhelming. We had to buy drinking water and ice.

We were looking for a good RV park for a one night stay while traveling along the Florida panhandle, and this park fit the bill. It has nice long level, gravel pull-thru sites with smooth gravel access roads. The staff were friendly, the hookups were excellent, and the park is located only 1/2 mile from I-10--far enough to avoid highway noise but close enough to be convenient for a quick stop. The only negatives to this RV park is that there is no free WiFi and it is 9 miles to closest diesel fuel (in Clearview, Florida). It is kind of out in the middle of nowhere.

Date of Stay:

We have stayed here several times, for a night or two, while traveling between points in Texas and Louisiana. The sites are level and paved, hookups are good, they have good Tengo WiFi, the staff are friendly, and the park offers easy access to and from I-10. Calling this park a "resort" is probably pushing it, and the trains that pass the park can be pretty loud, but it is still a good park for a few nights if you are passing through the area.

Date of Stay:

The average nightly rate we paid includes the monthly rate discount with our bill for electricity usage added. We had a long, level gravel (crushed granite) pull-thru site with concrete patio and picnic table. The access roads are all asphalt and the hook ups were very good. The Tengo WiFi was fair to good (depending on what time of day you were using it). They collect all of your trash and recycling (you must separately bag and mark it if you plan to recycle) at the curb every morning The staff and very friendly and helpful and the grounds are very well maintained. The only negatives about our visit was that the beautiful swimming pool was being renovated during the month of our stay and there were very limited social activities coordinated by the park. If we were in the Austin area, we would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for one night on our way from El Paso, TX to Austin, TX. The park is right off of I-10, but far enough that you don't hear highway noise. The sites were gravel and level. Access roads are asphalt with a lot of potholes, but if you go slow, you will be OK. The hookups and WiFi were good and Annie, at the front desk, was very nice. There is no recycling on site. There are quite a few semi-permanent pipeline residents with many confederate flags flying at the RV park. I can see how that could definitely be unnerving to some folks, including us.

This RV park has fairly level gravel pads and gravel access roads making for a very dusty experience. The WiFi was fair. Our hookups were all very good. There is recycling (minus glass) on site. The staff were pretty gruff. The best thing about this park is that it is only 5 minutes to the South Rim entrance station. You are paying for Grand Canyon proximity by staying at this park, definitely not for outstanding park amenities or service.

I am not a great fan of KOAs (too expensive for the amenities), but this is one of the nicer KOAs we have visited. The sites were level, gravel pads. The access roads were gravel and there was green grass at most of the sites. The hook-ups were good connections and the park was generally well maintained. The "free WiFi" was fair (intermittent and slow). There is no recycling available on site, but recycling bins (minus glass) are available in several locations in Cedar City. This RV park is located within the city limits of Cedar City. It is convenient to Cedar Breaks National Monument (about 30 minutes away), Zion National Park (about one hour away), and Bryce Canyon National Park (about one hour, 30 minutes away).
