Pocahontas State Park, Chesterfield, Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed for five nights on a nice pull thru site. There were lots of trees for shade, but they didn't obscure anyone wanting to get satellite. The site ran downhill but not so much that it made leveling too hard. The utilities were placed and worked well. We got several local TV stations on the antenna. There was plenty of space between us and the neighbors. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere but are only about ten minutes to anything you might need. We do have one major complaint though. Do NOT come in from Hull Street onto Spring Run Road to Beach. Spring Run is VERY narrow. Locals drive the road very fast. The curves are tight and are not angled properly which causes those fast locals to hug the center line. There are no shoulders on either side. We were in a 35' class A towing a car on a dolly. The dolly went off the road several times and the RV nearly did once as well. Come into the campground from Courthouse Road onto Beach. It's still narrow, but nothing like Spring Run Road. There is also a nice swimming pool at the campground although it wasn't open when we visited. A nice laundry room is also available. We camped at Pocahontas State Park in a Motorhome.

Shawnee State Park, Schellsburg, Pennsylvania

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

This was our second visit to this park. The office person told us we were on a different site than I thought. I questioned it a few times but finally went to the site he gave me. Someone else was on it. We called the office and were told that, indeed, he made a mistake. We drove to site 45 hitting numerous branches with our RV. The site (a pull thru) was downhill and so unlevel side to side that we couldn't level up. I called the office a second time. They sent a park ranger to our site. He told us he had other pull thrus we could use. However, he had to charge us an extra $15 for the site because it had sewer. At this point I felt they should have just given us the site at no extra cost. We finally settled in after driving around one-way roads with low hanging branches. The site was ok. No complaints about this one. I don't know that we would come back here again. Its frustrating to have a new RV get scratched from low branches. I realize after driving around the park so many times that most of the sites are not level. We camped at Shawnee State Park in a Motorhome.

Asheville East KOA, Swannanoa, North Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

While staying in Asheville we checked out this campground. We had been staying in the national forest but had no cell phone signal so we hoped to move to the KOA. As is typical with a KOA campground, the sites were close together. There was no shade to speak of. It looked like some units were spending the winter here. The cost of more than $50 per night just did not seem reasonable given that there was nothing about the park that stood out. We decided to save ourselves $30 and stay where we were instead of moving to this KOA. If the cost were half the amount, it might be worth staying. We camped at Asheville East KOA in a Motorhome.

Fort Chiswell RV Park, Max Meadows, Virginia

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We pulled in to avoid an early spring snowstorm. The staff is friendly. The sites are all pull thrus and long enough to leave the car on the dolly behind a 35' RV. Minimal leveling is required. The utilities are placed well and easy to use except the sewer hookup was angled making it hard for the fluids to properly flow. The are a lot of cable channels. The WiFi is acceptable and there is a table at each site. Propane is available. We suspect it is really nice when you can use the pool and the leaves are out. The sites are close to each other but not unbearably so. We would come back again. We camped at Fort Chiswell RV Park in a Motorhome.

Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground, Swannanoa, North Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $55.00
Overall Rating:

I am not sure why this campground gets such great reviews. The sites are on a STEEP slope. Just getting into a site requires extreme measures. I was not impressed when I stopped in to check out this campground. We went elsewhere. We camped at Mama Gertie's Hideaway Campground in a Motorhome.

Lake Powhatan Recreation Area, Asheville, North Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

The utilities weee placed well and worked as expected. The site was plenty long enough for our 35' and we had room for the car on the drive. The dolly was beside the RV. There is a nice table and fire pit on site. Our site needed boards under our front wheels to help level without causing the front tires to be off the ground. It's very quiet and relatively private. We camped at Lake Powhatan Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

New Green Acres RV Park , Walterboro, South Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

The signage is bad. Don't use your gps. We used it and ended up coming into the park from the back. We couldn't turn around with our Class A with a tow on the dolly because every road was one way. We went to the mobile home park next door and got stuck. We took the car and dolly off to turn the RV around. The mobile homes were abandoned or in very bad condition. A campground that boasts big wide sites to attract large RVs shouldn't be so hard to get into. The signs were so small they were useless. Back at the park we learned they had one site left for one night on Thursday that had water and electric and was 30 amp. We took it. We called to find out were the cable was. It took a half hour before we could get through. We didn't have it on our site. She told us which WiFi was their's. It was so slow it was useless. The rules said not to park in the grass. Our entire site was grass. They said to keep fires in the fire ring or grill. We had neither. A neighbor asked us where the cable was. He didn't have it either. There is noise from the freeway but it wasn't unbearable. We won't be back again. We camped at New Green Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park, Jacksonville, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed 11 days. The park is hard to rate. Its not a place i would choose because the sites are close and unlevel. However given its location next to the ocean I am rating it higher than I might otherwise. It was a longer drive to St Augustine then I planned but doable. It's relatevely quiet during the week. Our spot was decent and our 35' with tow and dolly fit on the spot. The utilities were unusual (sewer) but worked well. There are two gates you must enter and exit. The campstore is okay. Our site had a lot of vegetation making it private. Some sites would have been a disappointment but ours was good. The staff is very friendly. We found a publix about 5 miles away and Walmart about 8 miles. We would stay again because of the location and privacy on the beach, but the road conditions leave a lot to be desired. They're narrow, twisting, treed, and there's missing pavement on the sides of the roads. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

Ocala National Forest / Salt Springs Rec Area, Fort McCoy, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park. The utilities work well and the sites are relatively level and easy to get into. We stayed two weeks. There are about 20 tv channels but we had NO t-mobile cell service. A five mile drive down the road got us cell service. The park has WiFi that works (for the most part). Most sites have a tree or two, a table, and a fire pit. The staff is great. It is a quiet place but is in the middle of nowhere. There are two gas stations with stores, a Dollar General, and a couple small restaurants/drive-ins. It is walking distance to the pretty spring to side beside or swim in. A Walmart and other stores are in Palatka to the north and Ocala to the SE. both are 20-30 miles from the CG. If you want to relax and enjoy nature, this is the place. We camped at Ocala National Forest / Salt Springs Rec Area in a Motorhome.

Fort De Soto Campground, Tierra Verde, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

I was disappointed with this park. First off all, it is NOT a great place for a large RV. Yes, it's manageable to maneuver through the park but you have to be very careful not to scratch your RV. The roads are narrow with low hanging limbs. Trees hang out into the sand road and the road is NOT straight. Our spot was 112. We had to put the slideout between two trees while hugging them to avoid a low hanging branch on the opposite side. Our second site (157) was hard to get into as the site was on a corner and turned the wrong direction for the curve. The roads have right turns and you have to avoid trees and trash cans. The roads are all one way so you have to leave the park and come back in if you want to go to the office. We had very little cell signal. There is no sewer anywhere. The utilities were placed ok. It was nice to drive down to the beaches, but driving to town and back will cost you a toll fee every time. The hosts were pleasant and dedicated to keeping the park nice but I expected much more from this CG based on everyone's reviews. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Motorhome.

Do miss the Dolphin Racer boat tour in St Petersburg. It's one of the best things we did. We saw 10-15 dolphins all jumping in the wave during our entire trip.

Tillis Hill Recreation Area, Brooksville, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

This park is hard to find and provides no signage on the main roads. We came out on 491 (S. Lecanto Hwy) to W. Stagecoach Trail. Turn on the Stagecoach and drive to Trail 13 which is marked by the brown Tillis Hill sign. Now the fun starts. The road is more than a mile long and is dirt! Go slow! Very Slow! After a mile you end up on a paved road that leads to the campground. No office staff was there to great us so we just went to our spot. The park is quite nice with trees and room between the sites. There is water and electric but no sewer hookups. We were on site 21 and had to park the rear on boards. Otherwise the site was great. The front yard is huge. Do NOT follow your GPS. Ours told us to go from Citrus Way/Lecanto/491 to Trail 18. This is NOT what you want to do. Take Stagecoach! I don't know that we would camp here again given the entrance road which is sad because it really is a quiet campground. We camped at Tillis Hill Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

Lake Louisa State Park, Clermont, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $27.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed on pull through site 19 (water and electric) for five days. The park is nice and quiet. I don't, however, understand why they only have a couple sewer sites. Our site didn't have sewer but the one directly across the street did. Given that the units in here are large Class A, C, and fifth wheels, they should extend sewer throughout. All sites are reserved for the foreseeable future so the park is popular and would pay for itself. The facilities are very nice. There is also a laundry and canteen plus you can rent kayaks. We camped at Lake Louisa State Park in a Motorhome.

Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake, Orlando, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

This is such a great park at a great price in a great location. It is within a mile of the city limits but feels like you're in a rural area. The campground sits back 3/4 mile off Hiawaaaee Road. The utilities are well placed. Most sites have concrete. There is space between sites and most are shaded. The laundry has four washers and dryers and are only $1.25. You hear a bit of noise from the turnpike but it's minimal. You will likely notice the sound of the fireworks from Universal more. It's close to I4 although we avoided it with the construction. Taking Turkey Lake Rd when you head south is a nice way to avoid traffic. My only complaint is that this park is called by rivers "the Bill Frederick shuffle". We had to move 4 times in 17 days and we reserved our site fivw months before arrival. Some sites (7) is very unlevel from front to back. I saw several small travel trailers on level sites while 35-45' RVs and 5th wheels were on unlevel sites. It's much easier for a small unit to level up on an unlevel spot. Parks should consider this when planning reservations. I consider myself lucky to even have a spot here. I would definitely stay again. We camped at Bill Frederick Park at Turkey Lake in a Motorhome.

Silver Springs State Park (formerly Silver River State Park), Ocala, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We spent one night at this park. The signage was pretty bad and we ended up where the boat rides originate from. We called the park and were told this happens often. They are supposed to get better signs. We were directed a mile in the opposite direction. The sites, while quite nice, are NOT longer term rv friendly. The sewer is so far away from the electric that we couldn't hook up to it even though we are in a 35' rv. Most of the sites in our section are pull thru sites. All looked nice but the ones we saw all the same problem with sewer hookups. Setting this aside (which is difficult to do) the site was clean and had a nice picnic table and fire pit. The bathrooms are very clean. The laundry units are in good shape and only $1 per load to wash or dry. The park is about nine miles from I75 down busy but easily driveable roads. The interior roads are tight but not too bad. We might check elsewhere if we visited again strictly due to the inability to hook up to sewer. We camped at Silver Springs State Park (formerly Silver River State Park) in a Motorhome.

Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park, White Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

We spent one night at this park. There are no sewer hookups but there is a dump station. The grounds themselves are very nice and the utilities were well placed. I do, however, have a few complaints. The signage could be much better. The entrance is on a curve in the shade and it's not clear if this is the campground entrance until it's too late. Fortunately there is a gas station around the bend that we turned around in. Once you get into the campground it is easy to take a second wrong turn before coming to the sites. The second complaint is that the trees need to be trimmed to prevent them from scratching RVs. The washer and dryer were quite old. In today's age of large RVs it's a shame that the park only has 30 amp service. We didn't need it this time of year, but this park wouldn't be up for consideration later in the season. In spite of these complaints it was a nice enough park that was well cared for, but we would probably try someplace else next time. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Motorhome.
