Stonebridge Campground & RV Park, Maggie Valley, North Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

A friend has stayed in this park for a month three years in a row. He and his wife like it, but it did not take me long to figure out why. They get a space on the creek that is close to the park office. That keeps other RVs and TTs lined up in a configuration that allows them to get out easily. It also allows them to walk over to the park office to get the wifi that is advertised as free to work. I stayed in a pull thru space that worked well when no one was next to me. When another trailer pulled in next to me and rolled out his awning, I realized how close the spacing is. We could not have both extended our awnings and out picnic tables were end to end....not much privacy. The night before my departure, I had to ask this camper to move his Harley so that I could get out the next morning. The rows of spaces are so closely packed that your next door neighbor or neighbor across the lane can block you in with no effort at all.

For the last two nights of my stay there were four Harleys next to me in one space with four tents. They did not abide by the 10:00 PM start of quiet time, and they were not to happy when I started de-camping at 6:00 AM on my last morning.

Finally, the free wifi would be a great deal if it actually worked. The park had four router towers, but three out of four of them were set to the same channel 11. Thus, their performance competed with each other and cancelled each other out. The wifi would work for 10 minutes then disappear for an hour. I also could not get my iPhone7 Version hot spot to work. I had two cellphone bars of service, but the wifi hot spot failed every time I tried it. I believe there was too much interference from the hot spots of other campers near me. I had to walk to the park office to get wifi to work or drive down the road to get my hot spot to work. We camped at Stonebridge Campground & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Saint Andrews State Park, Panama City Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $31.00
Overall Rating:      

I have been to this park many times to see the deer and the birds or to walk on the beach. Great park. This was my first overnight stay. I was in the Lagoon area, and had a great water view. However, I also had music coming across the water from a restaurant or bar on the other side of the bay. I will stay closer to the boat ramp the next time so that I am closer to the walking trails and farther away from potential bar/restaurant music. Be sure to wear shoes or sandals at all times. Otherwise, you may get sand spurs in your feet. They are everywhere. We camped at Saint Andrews State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Florence Marina State Park, Omaha, Georgia

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $29.00
Overall Rating:      

The guy who checked us in was a friendly guy who could have been in a movie...smooth fellow. He said we had selected the best park in Georgia for our stay and he was probably right. I have not stayed in many Georgia parks, but it was as good as any park I have been in. If they had WiFi and were closer to a store or restaurant, I would have rated them a 10. The cable TV was excellent. They have many pull-thru spaces and I had many to choose from. Providence Canyon is only about a 10 minute drive away. I highly recommend the trek. The marina that was part of the park looked really good, but I did not have my boat with me. Two guys came in near me who had a 30' travel trailer and a pontoon boat in tow behind it...never seen that much in tow before. They had plenty of room for both and the tow truck in their pull-thru camping space. We camped at Florence Marina State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Florida Caverns State Park, Marianna, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2013 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is well maintained. They had two hosts on site, and at least one was busy at the site all of the time. The drive back to the camping area was long, but scenic (bring your GPS to find your way back out the first time). The nearby trails we also well-maintained. Proximity to Marianna was easy and the selection of stores and restaurants is top notch for a small town. In addition to the caverns at the park, there is a Panhandle Pioneer Settlement about 30 minutes south...excellent place to visit. Proximity to I-10 is also superb. If the site had Wi-FI and cable, I would have rated them a 10. We camped at Florida Caverns State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Holiday Campground, Ochlockonee Bay, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

This campground is close to a major road, and campsites near the road would hear the road noise. Access to the campsites is good and wide. However, the sites are dirt with some gravel or seashells. They are not level. The sites on the water side are narrow, leaving a tight fit if you put your awning out. There are excellent restaurants in less than one mile. The WiFi does not always work, and the speed is slow when it does work. There is a beach on Mash Island nearby. Parking is limited at the beach access, so go early if you plan to spend time on the beach. There was a lot of seaweed on the beach when I was there. Apparently, the water quality is sometimes iffy; there is a water quality posting at the beach restrooms. We camped at Holiday Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Cedar Key RV Resort, Cedar Key, Florida

Date of Stay: July, 2013 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an outstanding RV park. All of the campsites are easy to access. The pavilion is superb. The staff is friendly. If the park was closer to the coast or on the water, I would have given it a 10. Be sure to eat at Tony's in Cedar Key and try their clam chowder. It is to die for. We camped at Cedar Key RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Florala City Park, Florala, Alabama

Date of Stay: June, 2013 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

Proximity to the restaurants and stores in Florala is a plus. The staff are friendly. The grounds are clean and well maintained. The wireless (Wi-Fi) works but my signal strength was only two bars most of the time, and the speed was slow (but for a state park, how can you complain). Cell strength was excellent. My stay was in the middle of June, and all of the water side spaces were filled. You have to arrive early to get on the water side because it is first come first served for space assignments. You can call ahead for reservations, but the staff does not assign you a space until you arrive. Because the park is located on Lake Jackson, be prepared for families with kids when it is warm enough to swim. If you want seclusion, try the parks near Baker, FL. They don't have Wi-Fi and they are not as close to stores/restaurants, but they are quiet. We camped at Florala City Park in a Travel Trailer.

Open Pond Recreation Area, Andalusia, Alabama

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

This is one of the best maintained camp grounds I have used. Access to each camp site is easy and the sites on the water side are superb. If you are an angler, try the fishing. I understand there is good bass fishing in the pond and the boat ramp is good. There are two small ponds just down the road that have even better fishing. I would have given this campground a much higher rating if not for the way I was treated by the Alabama State Highway Patrol (ASHP) and the USDA Forest Service. The ASHP patrols the campground around 9:30 PM and 8:30 AM and checks each campsite. If there is no clear evidence that someone is physically on your site the first night you stay in the campground, the ASHP will issue you a ticket in the name of the USDA Forest Service. I was out late having dinner with friends in Andalusia on my first night in the campground and left at sunrise to do photography at nearby Blue Lake. When I got back to my campsite, I found a citation attached to my travel trailer. Needless to say, it ruined my day. We camped at Open Pond Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

Ochlockonee River State Park, Sopchoppy, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2013 - $9.00
Overall Rating:      

I often visit St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) that is a reasonable drive down the road, and I sometimes visit this state park as well. This was my first stay there in a Travel Trailer. I found access to be tight. I was lucky that I selected a campsite that I could easily back into. There were some that would have been a challenge for my 19.5' trailer. What I really liked about this park were the pines trees and the walking path along the river. They have kayaks and boats that are for rent and a great floating dock. What really amazed me were the white squirrels. I saw two while staying there. Please note that the regular rate is $18, but I received a FL Senior Discount of $9.00. We camped at Ochlockonee River State Park in a Travel Trailer.
