Weekly rate. This is a nice older park and the residents are very friendly and very active in the park. This park is well maintained and well managed except for reservations. The sites are a little tight but not terrible. The pool is heated and very nice. The bonfire area next to the pool is excellent for get togethers and the fishing pond is large and well stocked. Catch and release only. The hot tub, I was told, is the old pool and somehow the jets were rerouted and only on in one small section of the tub. Nice though. Shopping, restaurants, produce, and grocers are all within walking distance. There is a short walking and biking path in front of the park. WiFi is accessible only in the club house but TV antenna reception is very good. The only problem we had was; their brochure said that you cannot pick a site, but you can pick the type of site you want. We reserved FHU 8 months before arrival but upon arrival we were put in the overflow with no sewer. I really would not have minded except there is only 2 showers and hot water is very hit or miss, there is only 2 toilets, 1 male, 1 female and their blue waste tank is worn out and the top won't stay on, causing several sewage spills. Not enough facilities for 20+ units in the overflow area. Arcadia is a small town about 40 minutes from anywhere and not much to do here. I would stay here again if in the area.

Weekly rate. This park is about location. Right at the entrance to the Florida Keys with access to the Keys without the price. The park is older but very pleasant. Restrooms and showers are well maintained and clean. The pool is elevated, heated and very well maintained. The clubhouse is large and much used for all types of activities. The Tiki Bar is unique and the drinks are good and reasonably priced. The sites are mostly grass but due to heavy rains this year many of them were mud, but the office had no problem with moving us to a grass site from our original muddy one. Everyone here was friendly and helpful. The only problem we had was the roads are very narrow and people parked their vehicles right on the edge of the road. I had to go around three times to get lined up on our site so I could get in. Also beware there are many mature trees with low limbs making it dangerous to get into and out of some sites with tall rigs. WiFi was very spotty and due to the trees TV reception was restricted. I would stay here again when in the area.

This is an interesting county park. Most of the sites are waterfront on the intercoastal water way. Boating, fishing and kayaking are excellent from here. There is a bridge from this park to a nice little island with primitive camping. The sites are large and you can park however is convienent for you, and most sites have access to the water. Very nice layout. There is a nice boat launch and a fish cleaning area with running water. The WiFi is weak and spotty. Even as far out as we were, we had adequate TV reception. Close to the beach as in easy biking or a long walk. There are very few sites with full hookup so if you have a site near a dump station there is a constant flow of people dumping sewage and the smell is all day long. The restrooms, showers and laundry are in serious need of updating and/or complete renovation. The campground is about 10 miles from anything like shopping though there is a nice restaurant near the entrance. Bring what you need with you as everything out here in expensive. Bacon at the grocery is $9.50 a lb. I would stay here again if in the area but not a site near the dump station.

This is a very nice park and well maintained. The sites are large and though the roads are narrow they are fairly easy to navigate. The recreation room, club house, fitness center, shower house are all very nice and we used them a lot. There is a nice little restaurant on the property and the LP fill station is handy and reasonably priced. Most monthly sites had concrete pads to park on and the more transient sites had blacktop pull throughs. The best thing about this park is its location, right on the Ocalawaha (sp) River. We put our Kayak in at Silver Springs and paddled the 5.6 miles right to the camp ground several times. Excellent river trip with lots of wildlife to view. This park does have one major flaw. They have divided the park into three sections creating a bit of a class system. The park model section and the class "A" section had heated swimming pools but the transient section where we stayed the pool was broke for all but one week of our stay and even after they fixed it we found out it was not heated. Each section had its own club house and activities segregating each section. Would rate this park higher except for the segregated feeling we got. We would stay here again.

Rate is monthly not including electric. Reasonable! This park is not terrible but deserves a pros and cons; Sites are large and mostly pull thrus BUT the landscaping is in terrible shape and the sites are very dirty. Some people a few sites down who used to come here a lot left due to the conditions. Restrooms are very clean BUT are old and worn and hit and miss if you get hot water. Has play ground, shuffle board and basketball BUT they have not been cleaned in a long time and are not usable. The office is open and staffed BUT I disagree with others in that they are borderline rude. The laundries are open air, clean and well kept BUT the machines are old and need replaced. Cable is pretty good BUT seems to be rebooting a lot. WiFi is available and good most of the time BUT as the park fills up and in the evening it really slows down. The pool is very nice, clean and well kept BUT not heated and very cold. Not usable this time of year. This is the first park in 4 years of travel that we did not make new friends. Very clickish. I am not really that picky but did not enjoy our month stay here. Probably will not come back.

Nice clean little park with only 30 spaces. The owners are more than eager to please and it shows in the park. Spaces are mostly level gravel with small concrete patios. And the spaces are plenty large. This is a nice place with easy access on and off US-1 and I-95 with easy access to St. Augustine. It is about 20 miles south of St. Augustine but is a straight shot up US-1. The price is much better than closer into town and it's clean and everyone seems friendly. There is a really nice rec room with TV, books, tables and sort of a kitchen area as well as a small well kept laundry. This park is for self contained units as there is no bath house or restrooms. There is no hot tub or pool so is not a destination park but for a place to stay while visiting or for a overnight it is great. Also only a few longtimers but they are well maintained. The only negative is the road noise. The 3 or 4 spaces along the highway can get a little loud.

We are full timers so we prefer a little more grass and concrete and not so much sand and dirt. Other than that it is like a typical state park campground. A bit overgrown and by Monday the restrooms are usually a mess. The beach was very nice and the lake was good for canoeing and fishing. The spaces were spacious for our 37 ft fifth wheel, truck and car. The picnic tables should have been replaced a few years ago. The main reason for the low ratings is that we were there when Mayport and Kathryn Abbey park had a record rain fall of 13.5 inches in 24 hours. Mud everywhere and a river running under our camper. (not the parks fault of course). Not one person came around to see if we were OK or if we needed some help but as soon as I threw some of our muddy mats and rugs over a tree branch to hose them off attempting to dig ourselves out it did not take long before they left us a nasty note to get our stuff out of their trees. Not privately owned and the city employees have nothing invested. I get it!!!!

This is not a destination park, but as a stopping off place to visit Savannah or as an overnight stop it is more than satisfactory. The staff were friendly and the pull through sites were easy to manage. Laundry was good and access to the highway and Savannah was easy. The sites were very narrow and the picnic tables should have been replaced a long time ago. The pond was a bit of a mess, but one of the owners told me they had not owned this park long and were trying to make improvements. I would stay here again if visiting Savannah.

This is a really excellent park. My wife said "it feels like home here". Everything is well taken care of. Dogs are well regulated w/ several dog parks. The pool and hot tub are nice. Lots of activities if you wish to participate. Nice laundry facility and the bathrooms and showers are really well taken care of. The office staff goes above and beyond to take care of all the little everyday problems. The rates are also less than most other parks in the area. Our rate was based on monthly. My only complaints with this park is space # I-25. All the spaces run from sewer outlet to sewer outlet but for some reason the outlet was not spaced properly causing this space to be about 5 to 6 feet smaller than all the rest. Really strange and very inconvenient when you have a 36ft RV with 4 slides. And all the spaces are short so large rigs are going to have a time maneuvering after you are in. Better hit it the first time. There are also no picnic tables though not a problem for us.

This little out of the way park has only 14 sites and no frills. It does have one of the nicest sites we have had on our trip. Very nice walled, concrete, private patio with a built in grill table and walkway lighting. The owners are very friendly and will help you as much as they can to make your stay pleasant. The park is very well maintained. No restrooms, showers, pool, or much of anything else. They do have a nice little tiki bar that the owner built but I never did see anyone use it. A lot of the residence are full time and work in the area. We enjoyed being out and away from the large busy parks for awhile. Easy access to all the wonderful sites and things to do around Tucson. Very close to Gates pass, Sanora state park, Tuson mountain park and all the hiking trails. About 8 miles to shopping and the highway into Tucson. Would probably stay here again if they could do something about the barking dog across the street.

We were here in the winter and there was 3 in. of snow the first day so I am sure this is a much better place any time but now. The campground was very well cared for and the camp host was friendly the one time we talked to them. The facilities were clean and there was hot water. The access road to the campground is long but in good shape. The roads inside the campground are narrow, but we had no trouble parking our 36 ft fifth wheel. We loved the wildlife around the park. Lots of quail, rabbits and road runners as well as coyotes howling in the night. Great, inexpensive place to stay to visit Carlesbad Caverns. We would stay here again. Hopefully in the spring or fall.

This park has new owners in the past couple years and it looks like they are doing everything they can to make this a really nice park. We stayed here three days and used the pool but did not use or participate in the other activities. The park is clean and well cared for and appears to be a family friendly park. San Marcos is a good place to stay to visit the area. Between San Antonio and Austin with easy highway access to both. I would stay here again.

This is an exceptional destination park. The owners go above and beyond to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Probably more of a summer park than winter as a lot of the things to do here were either closed or not comfortable to do this time of year but they have one of the best hot spas I have ever seen. Restroom and showers are very clean but the one near our space had very little hot water. East access to the beach and the roadway has bike trails. It is several miles to Galveston but the town is so well laid out that finding where you are going is very easy. The RV park offers, ALL pullthru sites, breakfast on Wed morning followed by shopping with Dora. Free movie rentals, a small RV store, two swimming pools, (one for adults only) hot spa, laundry, miniature gulf, work out room and much more.

This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in on our 5 month trip though the south. All concrete sites, a really nice fishing pond, two swimming pools, hot tub, shelter house, laundry, club house, etc. They even have a bar and huge screen TV in one of the shelter houses next to a pool and hot tub. The people in the office go out of their way to make your stay as nice as possible and even when we had a breakdown and had to stay an extra day, messing up their schedule, they went above and beyond to help us out. Really enjoyed our stay here.

This is a city park pretty bare bones but if you need a place to spend a night or two passing through, this is it. Easy to access in and out and within walking distance of restaurants and services. Be careful, the entrance is not marked well but is right next to the police station. You have to go to the city office to pay or the police station after hours. Good water and 30 amp electric only. Most of the sites on the east end do have sewer hookups. No tables, fire rings, ect., just a grass field to park on.
