North Fork Resort, Front Royal, Virginia

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very large campus that includes several campgrounds within the complex. Some sites are on higher elevations near the entrance. Others are on the pool and rec area level, and others are near the river in the valley. It is a member-owned property, which means there are quite a few long term residents, and some vacant RV'S that appeared to be occasionally used. The property is older, but the facilities weren't bad. We stayed in the valley next to the river. There is no direct access to the water, except for three designated areas. It is possible to tube the river from the "put in" to the "take out". Farms are located above the property so tubers must be aware of run off risks. There used to be a store and restaurant on site, but they burned. A small store is located about a half mile away, while large retail and restaurants are just a few miles away in Front Royal. There are three pools with a snack shop. Two pools are open until 10 pm. There is also mini-golf and a rec. center. Cell and WiFi are better at the upper levels of the park. Near the river little to no service cell, AT&T or Verizon, is available, and WiFi hardly worked at all. All pads are limestone, and level. Water, sewer, and electrical were good. It is a scenic area. People in the park were nice. Not sure I would return, however. We camped at North Fork Resort in a Travel Trailer.

douglas dam tailwater campground, Sevierville, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is a hidden gem located about ten miles from the hustle and bustle of the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg tourist destination. The Tennessee Valley Authority runs this park, which is located directly on the river below the Douglas Lake dam, and the Headwaters park, which is on Douglas Lake. The Headwaters has a beautiful overview of the lake, while Tailwaters provides the opportunity to camp right on the bank of the clear, fast moving river. As expected with a public park, there is electricity (30 amp. and some 50 amp service), water, but no sewer. The dump station is located on the wrong side of the roadway going out, so a looping around is necessary. Most grass/limestone pads were pretty level at the Tailwater, Headwaters had a number that were not so level. There are two bath houses in easy walking distance of any site. They were clean. This is a true campground, in there are no swimming pools or other recreation for the kids. That didn't seem to be an issue for the kids that were there as they enjoyed riding their bikes and fishing. Cell service for AT&T and Verizon was relatively reliable. There is no Internet. Take the Sevierville exit from I-40, go about a mile to the first traffic light and turn left. Follow that road (Hwy. 139) for a few miles to the Douglas Dam road. Take a right and stay right to the entrance. The office and small camp store are on the right. The camp hosts were extremely nice and helpful. We loved this beautiful park and will be returning. We camped at douglas dam tailwater campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lafayette KOA, Scott, Louisiana

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $52.00
Overall Rating:      

This was our third stay at this KOA. While KOA's rates are more than we usually pay, this particular park offers a lot for the money. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The location places the visitor to true Cajun country at its doorstep. Kids will enjoy a clean pool, paddle boats and a playground. Adults will appreciate the easy on and off from I-10, as well as some really great restaurants nearby. I recommend the sites on the east side, next to the lake, as they are shady and provide decent space between campers. The bathhouse is always clean.

The only downside is that the sites near the interstate have to deal with some road noise. We camped at Lafayette KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Ask the staff for "The Cake Lady's" site. Go by and place your order for the best strawberry cake you have ever eaten!

Palmetto Island State Park, Abbeville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: February, 2016 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

This state park is one of our favorites. It is a relatively new park that has level, spacious, shaded sites that are somewhat private because of the vegetation that is left to grow between them. The bath houses are always clean, as is the park in general. Kids will love the large splash pad, while the whole family will have fun canoeing the trails through the swamp areas to the Vermillion River. There are several nature trails that pass by three ponds that are excellent fishing holes. Bring your bikes to ride several miles of paved roadways.

The only reason that it doesn't get a 10 is because there is no sewer connection. We camped at Palmetto Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sweet Water Campground, Loranger, Louisiana

Date of Stay: April, 2014 - $47.00
Overall Rating:      

Upon arrival you will check in at the sparsely supplied camp store. The staff is very friendly and helpful in getting your RV to its spot. Most of the sites are grass or dirt, and unlevel. There are plenty of activities throughout the day, including horseback riding, swimming, fishing, and arts and crafts. The bath houses and pools are clean.

Dust is an issue here as there are no paved roads. The staff did water the road down one afternoon, which helped some.

It is somewhat expensive considering what other campgrounds offer for less money. However, my 4 year old granddaughter had a great time. We camped at Sweet Water Campground in a Travel Trailer.
