Very quiet campground with some road noise from I-75 mostly only noticeable on the side up against the highway. Two main sections to the campground - the older part with gravel sites and grass between with lots of live oak trees and Spanish moss and the newer part with concrete sites, concrete patios and grass between the sites with minimal vegetation. Big rigs are better off in the newer part of the campground, however, with care, they can get into the sites in the older part of the park. Access roads are all asphalt with those in the newer part of the park wider than those in the older part. Sites were mostly level. Big rigs should use Wesley Chapel Rd to Old Pasco Rd (approaching the campground from the south). Coming in from the north via FL 52 to Old Pasco Rd there is a risk of scraping the ground at the turn for longer rigs. Old Pasco Rd itself is a narrow 2 lane (10' lanes) road with no shoulders. Power ok, water ok (60psi), sewer ok (note septic was in the gravel parking area covered by a metal plate - pretty much under the rig). Wifi blocks video streaming so bandwidth doesn't drop to nothing in the evenings. It also appears that some degree of censoring is being applied to non-video related content - e.g, IMDB was blocked, research on an Adobe Lightroom problem was blocked, and the iTunes store was blocked. Verizon 4 bars with adequate speed except in the evening. TMobile 1-2 bars (sometimes none) with usable speed. Satellite access depends on the site in the older part of the park, no issues in the newer part of the park. Recycles cans, cardboard, and paper on site. OK road bike riding in park (about a 1.5 mile loop), none adjacent to park. Good road bike trail within 30min drive (Suncoast Trail). We would stay here again.

A very nice, peaceful campground set alongside the Barron river. Some noise from the air boats, but not as noticeable as we thought it might be (we were on a riverfront site at the south end of the campground away from the air boat docks). Very much a roll up the sidewalks kind of town (restaurants were closed by 6pm when we were there). A good place to just put up your feet and relax. Wide access roads constructed with pavers. Sites are pavers with various vegetation between the sites. Plenty of room for rig and toad with generous patio area. Sites were mostly level. Gated campground, but note that the keypad for entry is on the passenger side of the vehicle. No issues at all with big rig access. Power, water, sewer ok. Wifi good signal strength and speed, but could not get our router connected. Macs and iPads had no problems with connecting. Verizon 3-4 bars with adequate speed. No usable T-Mobile signal. No issues with satellite access. No recycling on site. Decent road bike riding adjacent to the park along CR-29 (adequate bike lane and minimal traffic). We would stay here again.

Open gravel lot with some scattered vegetation. Overlooks Grassy Key Harbor for bayside views. Nice common area next to water. Very quiet except for background traffic noise from highway. Level, gravel, somewhat small sites - not quite long enough for 44' motorhome with toad parked sideways. A lot of overhang into the "street" by the toads and tow vehicles - moving of which is generally required to get rigs in and out of sites. Somewhat narrow sites - felt more cramped here than elsewhere in Florida. Power ok, water pressure low (40psi static dropping to 25psi with water running), sewer ok. Wifi pretty useless, unable to connect. Note 1GB per week limit. Verizon 3-4 bars with sluggish to adequate speeds. TMobile comes and goes - sometimes no signal, sometimes 1 or 2 bars. Did not check speed. No issues with satellite access. No recycle. Good road bike riding adjacent to park - small amount (1/4 mile) of street riding to reach the Florida Overseas Heritage trail. We would likely stay here again when in the keys.

A nice campground located within a large urban park surrounding a couple of small lakes. Given it's urban location the noise level was pretty low - just a low hum from I-95 and the general aviation traffic from the adjacent airport. The campground itself was very quiet even on the weekends. Winding relatively narrow asphalt access roads (probably a lane and a half in most cases). Sites are concrete pads surrounded by grass and a good number of trees (but by no means "wooded"). Short term sites (not more than 14 days) along the water are relatively spacious with generally good views. Long term sites are away from the water and look to be very close quarters. Big rig access to a given site is entirely dependent upon your neighbors (may necessitate moving of a vehicle or two). Access roads are generally too narrow for a big rig and a car to pass. Some of the turns at the intersections can be tight and sight limited. Some of the sites need to have trees trimmed higher. Power ok (although we did have an intermittent ground problem), water ok (50psi), sewer ok. Wifi pretty much unusable - sluggish at best and very annoying with frequent logins required. Verizon and TMobile LTE good signal strength and speed. Satellite access is site dependent, but most sites appeared to be open enough. Full, two stream (paper and cardboard in one bin; everything else in the other bin) recycling on site. Lots of road bike riding opportunities in the surrounding park. We will stay here again at least in a short term site, but we're not sure about a stay in the long term sites.

A rustic campground set between the Atlantic and the Intracoastal waterway. Walking distance to the beach on the Atlantic side and to a pier on the intercostal side for sunsets. Packed sand, narrow, sometimes winding, mostly one way access roads. Packed sand sites with lots of trees and other vegetation surrounding the sites. Some sites were relatively wide (and generally short), others were very narrow, but very long. Ours was 80+ ft long, but narrow. With the slides out on both sides, there was only a narrow path on either side between the rig and the vegetation. There was a lot of room for a "patio" area in front of the rig and a good feeling of privacy. Big rigs will need careful maneuvering to get into and out of the sites and to negotiate some of the turns on the access roads. Careful positioning within the site to work around low overhanging limbs, etc. may be required. A good ground guide is a lot of help with this. Sand can be soft in some areas - we sank a good 6" into the sand (with a 40,000lb rig) turning into our site but the ground was probably still saturated from the flooding during Hurricane Matthew. Very quiet with mainly just the sound of the surf and the occasional faint train noticeable on the Atlantic side of the campground. Gets noisier when the weekenders come in on Friday then quiets back down on Sunday pm. Power ok (one low voltage incident on leg 2 during a month long stay), water ok (70psi), sewer ok. Wifi non-existent. Even with high gain antennae and being located relatively close to the office, we were unable to maintain a connection. Verizon LTE 3-4 bars with good speed; TMobile LTE 2-3 bars with good speed. Satellite access very problematic for roof mounted dishes, might be doable with a portable dish in some of the sites. Full single stream recycling on site. No good options for road bikes, although A1A does have rather narrow, intermittent bike "lanes". We will stay here again.

Very pleasant lightly wooded campground with a lake. Far enough from US 17 to reduce the traffic noise. Asphalt access roads, mostly level gravel sites. Big rigs need to use caution around the entrance gate coming into the campground (need to swing to the right - looks like they bulged the road here to make room for a gate, but they didn't extend the bulge far enough past the gate to allow a big rig to stay on the pavement). Exit to US 17 is by turning either left or right when leaving the campground (direct access to US 17 North is possible by going straight but is highly dependent on traffic). Going either left or right, there will be some low hanging branches and a fair amount of branches protruding from the sides. Big rigs will most likely need to hug the centerline (if not slightly over it) to avoid scraping. Power ok, water ok (70 psi), sewer ok. Campground wifi good signal with speed ranging from adequate to abysmal. TMobile LTE 2 bars with adequate speed. Verizon LTE 2 bars, did not check speed. Satellite access depends on the site. Single stream recycling on site. Ok road bike riding in campground and on some of the surrounding streets, but no immediate access to riad bike trails. We would stay here again.

A relatively quiet, heavily wooded campground. Still recovering from hurricane Matthew (as is the entire island) so not as quiet as it could be. Noticeable road noise during the day (mostly the trucks hauling debris) which died off around sunset. Winding asphalt access roads - two lane in places, but mostly narrower. Nice level backin sites with pavers (jack pads required) for rig and patio and usually some amount of patio furniture. Can be tight for big rigs, but escorts did a fine job getting us into the site. Power ok, water ok, sewer ok. Campground wifi pretty good signal and speed - no need to use our hotspots. Verizon LTE 5 bars with adequate speed. Tmobile LTE 3 bars with good speed. Satellite access very iffy and highly site dependent. Good digital cable service. Good road bike riding in campground and miles (I road around 45 miles of them and still didn't get them all) of bike paths directly accessible from campground. Full single stream recycling on site back at the maintenance area near the lakeside sites. We will be back for an extended stay.

Half lightly wooded, half open space campground. Pretty quiet with some noise from the interstate. Former KOA that appears to be having some upgrade work performed. Mix of asphalt and gravel access roads with mostly level gravel sites. Sites in the lightly wooded area were pleasant to sit around at, did not explore the open areas of the campground. Big rigs use caution on the turn from the southbound off-ramp to avoid the curb on the inside of the turn. Power ok, did not use other utilities, wifi ok in the afternoon, sluggish in the evening. Verizon LTE 3-4 bars with decent speed, TMobile LTE 1-2 bars but did not check speed. We would certainly stay here for an overnight and perhaps longer.

Date of Stay:

A quiet campground surrounded by thick row of trees so highway and train noise is minimal. Front Half is concrete pads and asphalt access roads with heavy shade. Back half is concrete pads with gravel access roads and no shade. Sites have adequate spacing with grass between the sites, picnic tables, and fire rings on request. Highway noise was barely noticeable while the trains (6-12 a day) were moving so fast it was just a couple a minutes of noise for each train. The street leading to the campground is problematic, but doable for big rigs - narrow (maybe a lane and a half), trees both low overhanging and intruding from sides. Big rigs pretty much need to take the middle of road to avoid scraping. The turn into and out of the campground is tight but doable for big rigs. On exit big rigs need to go out from left lane and take all of the street. The trees on the left side of the exit are not trimmed for big rigs (thus losing half a lane). Trees on the right side of the road make the exit turn effectively a blind turn. Two rigs can't pass on the street. The main access road is wide enough for two rigs, but once back among the sites the access roads are pretty much a single lane but still two way traffic. Power ok, water ok, sewer ok, wifi pretty decent (but this was off season) except for Friday and Saturday evenings when campground filled up with weekenders. Verizon LTE 3-4 bars with adequate speed, TMobile LTE 1-2 bars with adequate speed. Cable was analog and somewhat snowy. Front half of the campground is problematic for satellite, back half is mostly ok for satellite except site 93 which has a low hanging tree overhead that precludes use of roof mounted satellite on front of coach. Southernmost sites in back area might have trouble clearing treeline for satellite. Onsite single steam recycle. Adequate road bike riding if short and repetitive in campground. No direct access to good road bike riding from campground. We would stay here again.

Quiet setting in an open field surrounded by "mountains" ("hills" for westerners). Beautiful views. Gravel access roads - main road is only lane and half; others are single lanes but "one way" (not really clear so traffic tends to go both ways). Sites are gravel with grass patio areas. No effective shade (young trees). Reasonable width on site but parking area for rig very narrow (about 8' so big rigs will be partially off the gravel even when centered). Pull thru sites have very noticeable slopes probably ok for 5ths and trailers (we observed the front of 5th wheel well below the top of the pickup when level at one of the sites), but most likely problematic for longer motorhomes. Backins are more level but we still needed our auxiliary step to get in to the coach due to how high the front end went to get level. Site was barely long enough to fit toad sideways. Power mostly ok (one dropout in two weeks on a hot day, but with only a handful of sites occupied). Water 40 to 45psi, sewer ok. No problems with satellite access No cable, no over the air tv, no wifi. Verizon LTE had moderate signal and speed. Tmobile had no signal. Some of the worst trash management we've seen - a single dumpster that was emptied once in 2 weeks. They would periodically compact the trash which only broke open the trash bags adding to the very unpleasant smell at the sites near the dumpster (prevailing wind was from dumpster to sites). No recycle. No good road bike riding at campground or immediate vicinity. Stink bugs were a problem at this time of year (still finding them in the coach 3 weeks later). Big rigs coming in from New Market should use exit 269, not exit 264 to avoid New Market center. The pass between New Market and Luray is fine as long as you are comfortable with mountain driving. Would consider again but only if several sites away from dumpster.

The good - great location for dc area; the bad - lots of noise (mostly a low frequency rumble) from 95 and 495. Noticeable traffic noise pretty much around the clock even with windows closed from an interior site (not backed up directly to highway). Big rigs have better access coming from 95 & Powder Mill road (avoids a lot of congestion at 495 & 1). Need to swing wide on right turn into park to reach checkin lanes. Asphalt access roads in decent condition, but parts are relatively narrow (no rig passing). No bad turns for big rigs. Site gravel with grass, gravel patio with picnic table and fire ring. Mostly backins with some pullthrus. Most sites reasonable width. Sites generally level, but did observe a large number of rigs with front tires nearly or completely off the ground (sites seem to have a slight slope towards road for last 5-10 ft so it all depends on rig length vs site length. Ours was long enough for rig (44' class A) plus toad parked sideways with a couple of feet to spare. Power ok, water ok (60psi), sewer ok needs donut. TMobile LTE 4 bars did not check speed. Verizon LTE 4 bars with decent speed. Campground wifi decent signal and speed. Satellite depends heavily on site as most sites back up to trees high enough to block access - back of site to southwest probably has no sat. Cable ok. Full single stream recycling. OK bike riding around the campground, no adjacent bike trails. We would stay here again.

A quiet mobile home park with some RV sites. No ambiance, but a decent location for the Philadelphia metro area. Asphalt access roads (main road good size, secondary roads relatively narrow, but "one-way" - not always paid attention to). Asphalt sites, mostly level and very narrow. Some sites can be somewhat challenging for a big rig. No picnic table or fire ring. Minimal to no shade. Power, water, sewer ok, wifi rather sluggish, Verizon good signal and speed, Tmobile good signal and speed. Satellite access ok. No recycle on site. Ok bike riding around the campground, no adjacent bike trails. We'd stay here again when in the area.

A work in progress. A very nice setting - mostly open field on a hill, but it needs some work which the owners are currently in the process of completing. The primary concern we observed were sites that were not level. Also trees are not trimmed high enough for big rigs. Some sites are grass, some are gravel. Older grass sites are OK on width. Newer gravel pull thru sites are rather close together. Leveling is currently a problem. The newer sites were being re-leveled while we were there, but even with the releveling it looks like longer rigs may still have a problem leveling. Maneuvering with big rigs is not great, but doable - some of the newer sites have pretty tight turns into the sites. Big rigs should come in from CT-20 as the bridge in East Haddam (coming in from CT-9) has a sharp right turn at the east end of the bridge. Big rigs using CT-9 will likely need both lanes to make the turn. All rigs should approach the campground from CT-149 and not from CT-16 (a very tight u-turn is needed to get into the campground when coming from CT-16). Power OK, water pressure low at 32psi when running (50 psi static). No sewer in our site but honey wagon is available for a fee. T-mobile no service, Verizon 1-2 bars LTE (sometimes only 3G) with adequate speed on LTE, no data with 3G. Campground WiFi decent signal and speed, but campground was nearly empty. WiFi did get very sluggish in the late afternoon. No problem with satellite access. We would consider returning.

A wooded, sandy campground adjacent to the Cape Cod rail trail. Very quiet (at least in the off season). Gated asphalt entry road with single lane (one way) gravel and sand interior roads. Big rigs need to use caution going through the gate as obstructions are close aboard and a left turn is required before completely clearing the gate area. Gravel and sand sites with varying degrees of level (some are level enough only for shorter rigs, others are fine even for big rigs). Campground staff seems to be aware of this as both times we have been there we were put in a site with a long enough level area for our rig. Sites width was very good. Power OK even under heavy load - 113v while pulling 30A on leg 1 and 41A on leg 2. Water OK, but only moderate pressure - 40 psi. Sewer needs a donut. No satellite access due to trees. 1 bar T-Mobile with adequate speed, 3 bars Verizon with decent speed, campground good signal and decent speed, but campground was only half full. Full single stream recycling on site. Cape Cod rail trail access directly from campground. Can be difficult making a left out of campground to return to the "mainland". This is our go-to place for Cape Cod, but we've been careful to go only off season. No idea what it would be like during the season.

A quiet, heavily wooded campground. The road (MA 1) to campground requires a lot of caution for a big rig - trees inadequately trimmed, narrow, winding, and potholes. Interior roads are asphalt and gravel with adequate width. Sites are mostly level gravel and long. Power ok, did not use other utilities. T-Mobile 1-2 bars LTE with reasonable speed; Verizon 3 bars LTE with reasonable speed: campground wifi ok signal strength with good speed but campground was less than half full. Satellite access problematic due to the number of trees. Full single stream recycle on site. Ok road bike riding in campground, no road bike trails adjacent to campground. We would stay here again when in the area (for an overnight or a longer stay).
