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.

Of all the parks we stayed at on our 5 month trip through the south this is one of only two where I would probably not return. The park was a typical county run park. a little run down and need of a little clean up but overall not bad. Unfortunately it is in a really run down part of town. Venturing to and from after dark seemed like a really bad idea. The roads in and out were not in very good shape.

Very nice well kept park. The restrooms and showers are very private and very clean. First time I have seen private family showers in a campground. Sites are easy to access and spacious. There were people constantly picking up and grooming the park. The park is quiet and near the water but easy access to all the local sites including the casinos and all the tourist sites. I would stay here again.

This is a nice little out of the way, quiet park for an overnight or few day stay. There are hiking trails and a playground for the kids and even an old haunted house on the property. The restrooms and showers are dated but clean and functional. The caretaker of the park is very friendly and helpful. A lot of the sites are pull-through and easy to access even for big rigs. Nice place to rest up when traveling through this area.

This is not a destination park. It is a convenient place to stay if you plan to visit the surrounding area. There is no pool, recreation area, picnic tables, grills, Wi-Fi, cable, or TV reception. There are no discounts. When I asked, the lady said "IT'S THIRTY DOLLARS". They do advertise Wi-Fi but it is only reliable at the club house. They do have a beautiful club house and really good breakfast but it is closed in the evenings and on the weekends so you cannot use the TV when you really want it. The shower room is exceptional but there are only two washers and dryers. There is a very nice RV store.
