This is a good park for being in New Orleans. The rate is very reasonable. The hookups are good and include cable which as of Dec 2015 was still largely functional although some channels were "digital unavailable". We used the laundry room here and was functional although could have used some clean up. The sites are tight. You might get your awning out if you try. The pool and hot tub are well kept. There are some long-term tenants but they are toward the back of the park. The park is in a sketchy park of town, although Walmart, Winn-Dixie, Lowe's, etc. are a quick drive away. The public bus stops in front of the park, but we didn't use it. This park is a great value considering the other options in the area. My only complaint is that I asked for the office to print a one page PDF for me and they directed me to a nearby UPS store.

Overall, a great state park near to downtown Austin. This had everything I expect from a state park campground. Spacious sites, good amount of privacy from the next site, rustic setting. My only complaint about this place, and nothing to to shy away from in a campground, is the level of detail and security that they have. They want to know everything about your tow vehicle, camper, license plates, etc. There's a gate combination and two phone numbers to call depending on level of urgency and time of day. There are security patrols through the park seemingly every 15 minutes and there's a camp host every 500 ft. in the park. I don't have a problem with this, but I felt it was overbearing.

This review is for camping directly on the beach...not one of the NPS campgrounds (e.g. Malaquite). There is an entry fee to the NPS area ($10) but nothing for the site itself. Thankfully for our family, this $10 was waived due to the every kid in a park program. So, overall, we paid $0 to camp on the beach for 2 nights. There are no hookups (boondocking), but the experience can't be beat. You will get sand in everything. But the beach is right outside your door. I wouldn't go down the beach without 4x4 and you have to know when the tides are for going in with a camper. It is very accessible though. There were a number of 5th wheels camping and tents, too. There is so much space that you find your own slice of the beach and you won't see the next camper.

This park has newly changed management and the new people are working to clean things up, but there is additional work needed for the price and considering KOA is literally less than a mile down the road and at a similar price point. The sites are close together but the owners did a good job of keeping the campers with a site in between them. There are a lot of permanent residents there and some units appear to not be used anymore. The owners do a good job of keeping the vacationers on the front and better sites. The cable at the site was active, but no channels worked due to a recent switch to all digital cable and need for a special box (not in your flat screen already). You are close enough to San Antonio that you can get plenty of over the air TV channels. The bus service (public) to the park is every 30 min. We used it 3 days and it was OK. Beats parking $20+ in downtown. We used the laundry facilities at the park and they were good. The park is in an industrial park of town and not gated / secured. If I were to go back to San Antonio, I would consider the KOA just down the road (gated + spacious-looking sites for a KOA) or a different area of town to stay altogether.

We arrived after hours and found our reservation as stated previously when reserving on the phone. My only complaint is that there was no map of the park in order to find my site. I drove through the park and returned to the office having not found my site. I proceeded on foot with a flashlight until I found it. There are a lot of permanent campers in the park. This is not a park to go to for a vacation. You either live there or you stop overnight for an easy-access place to stay with full hookups for less than $30. For the latter purpose it was great.

We stayed here when visiting the Savannah area. The park is nice and secluded with a number of long-term residents. Short=stay people are generally kept to the front of the park. It is no longer a self-serve park as previously reviewed. The owner was very accommodating. Full hookups. There is a main road at the front of the park, but it's not a super-busy road. Good park for a stay, but not a "resort" park.

I didn't like that we had to pay the park entry fee just to get to the campground within, but that's just the method, I guess. Once in, you have a free pass to go in and out as you please with no additional fee. The park is nice, very much like a state park. Our site in particular needed some repair and caused us to park rather awkwardly as a result, but due to the time of year was not a big deal. You get all of the park amenities (climb the rock!) with your campground stay. You do not get the "amusement" park, though. The rive from the park to downtown Atlanta is rather cumbersome especially considering the traffic. But, it makes for a very nice retreat after visiting Atlanta.

I love this park. I go out of my way to stay here. The sites are spacious and forest-setting. You can gather your own firewood. There is tons of geocaching. You can really get out in nature here but there's a ton of city and things to do and see nearby. The hookups are electric and water only but there is a well laid out dump station on site. I prefer the C loop, but depending on the season you might find only A and B loops open.

We go to this park yearly for the Halloween party. This is a great park for being privately owned. The sites are largely spacious. The pool is indoor and huge and clean. The only downside is the noise from the interstate. Whether you need a site for the night, want a place to stay when visiting the Columbus area, or just want a personal vacation; this is a great place.

This is an excellent campground. For our family, it is the benchmark. With the exception of sewer hookup (which I typically do not expect at a government-run park), this park has it all. One could spend a week at the park alone. Biking and hiking is excellent and can go one for hours without seeing the same place twice. The sites are paved and reasonably level. There are two playgrounds within the campground alone for the kids, one of which is huge. The campground promotes recycling (not often found). The dump station is setup very well. The sites are very well separated...good privacy. There is an abundance of firewood available for gathering. The grounds crew cuts up downed trees and they are free for the gathering. The whole campground is densely wooded. There is a large lake with paddle boat rentals or bring your own boat. There is a full city park with planned events on the other side of the lake. Best of all, the park is a very rural setting but is right along I-64 with easy access to all of the attractions in the area. Top notch in our family's opinion.

This park offered everything that I expect from a state park campground and more. The improvements to sites and campground roads is very new. All roads and sites are blacktop-paved and reasonably flat. Registration is first-come first serve and is self-registration after hours. Since we stayed only one night, we selected an electric only site and therefore paid only $23. A well setup dump station is easy to access on the way out. The kids enjoyed an excellent playground although there is a hike to the playground since it is shared with the public area of the state park. Based on the recent upgrades to the sites and the price, this will be a sure-stop for us in the future.

This is a nice, rurally set campground. The campground is set up very well and rows / facilities are well marked. The sites are a bit close together for my liking, but normal for a commercial campground. Full hookups were well placed. Most sites are pull-through. The pool is quite nice, although we did not use it. There is a catch and release pond for fishing and a very nice playground / sandbox area for kids. Roads are flat and well suited for biking although gravel-paved. A very good campground with a very good price considering the amenities. With traffic, downtown Charleston can be about a 30 minute drive, though.

The sites at this campground vary in location. Most of the campers at this time of year were in the open field area. This is by no means a bad thing. The sites are relatively new and have full hookups. Each site has a long gravel pad that is level. There's plenty of room to maneuver your rig as necessary. There are other sites deeper into the complex and some were in use; but most campers were in the field area. The location is excellent as a main highway into Savannah is one traffic light and less than 1/4 mile from the campground entrance. There are showers, laundry, playground, lake, pavilion, etc. at this campground, but we did not partake due to the short time spent actually at the campground (visiting Savannah). Our rate was with Good Sam discount. We would stay again if in the area.

We camped here 2 nights while visiting the St Augustine area. We were traveling with 2 small children. There were no kid facilities (playground), but there was plenty of space for them to ride their bikes. Full hookups were easy to access, sites were clean and reasonably level. We arrived after hours and found our registration on the bulletin board and a big "reserved" cone holding our site. The location is initially rather odd since the park entrance is directly behind a Dollar General store. However, we found it very convenient to have the store there and seemingly so did some other campers! We used our Good Sam discount, so the 30A / full hookup rate was $41 after taxes. Overall, a very good campground. We would consider it again if in the area.
