This was our third visit visit by design, and we were not disappointed. Clean, well maintained and highly enjoyable watching the river tugs going up and down the ole Mississippi. Great folks and good wifi. Only two restrooms, but easily accessible. This time of year, bugs, flies and other pests are very active, so prepare accordingly. Walmart about five miles away. Be prepared for rough Memphis roads and road hazards, but that has nothing to do with this little jewel. If you get a chance, spend a night or week at Tom Sawyer RV Park. We camped in a travel trailer.

Date of Stay:

We stayed three nights. This campground is what every KOA strives to be. Great sites, great utilities and friendly employees. My only problem was a large tree as you turn into the site. We came very close to creasing our Coach, but with a little maneuvering, we made it. WiFi is excellent, but will kick you off after a few minutes of inactivity. Park is very clean with curbside trash pickup. A bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. Camping world is very close as well as some great restaurants. If you are going to Nashville , give this park some consideration.

The sisters who run this KOA are simply amazing. While there, one was busy building lot decks by herself while the other tended to KOA business. This is not a destination campground. It is, however, the perfect place to spend a weekend or so. My only complaint is they now charge for internet. It is $3 a day or $12 a week. Too many parents letting their kids play games when the wifi was free, as I was told. May be a thing of the future for all of us who let the internet babysit our kids. Otherwise a great overnight or a weekend KOA.

We enjoyed a nice, quiet weekend at this KOA while visiting the area. Friendly staff and nice, level sites with room for all slides without sharing meals with your neighbors. Good cable and wi-fi. Entry and exit can be tricky with a long unit like ours, but it can be done. Just allow for the trees. Excellent location for weekend or vacation.

South Carolina has the most picturesque state parks anywhere in the USA. We had a site across from the camp store and the Wi-Fi was fast and strong. We had a full hookup site and it worked well for us. Not satellite friendly, but we managed to get a 90 signal on Direct TV. Scenery is gorgeous and the rangers are really friendly. If you are in the Myrtle Beach area and can get reservations, here is your home. Next to Huntington Beach State Park, this is a real hidden gem.

We stayed one night on our way to Walt Disney World. Staff was friendly and lead us to our site. The site was extremely unlevel causing us to use 2 2x6 boards, and we still leaned. Park well lighted and kid friendly, but roads are a nightmare. Getting in and out safely is a challenge, but can be done. Love the little welcoming gift. Wi-Fi is free for 30 minutes, but $5 a day for each computer. We won't be going back any time soon.

Only camper here. Grass needs cutting but sites are level and fairly easy to access, even with a 37' TT. Electric suspicious as 30 amp breaker couldn't handle load and tripped. Switched to 50 amp and used adapter. No more problems. Lady in office is friendly and accommodating. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Very impressive state park. Staff friendly, especially the office personnel and park police officers. Sites level and typically wooded, but well maintained. Some difficulty backing a long trailer in, but was probably designed when smaller RVs were the norm. No reservations ended for overnight, but suggested for longer term stays. Very difficult making reservations as one number will refer you to another. Be patient - it will be beneficial.

Rate includes extra daily charge for electricity. Nicest owner/operators you will meet. Campground very clean as were the facilities. Excellent utilities and the campground is well landscaped, affording a very desert feel. Don't forget to visit Mt. Lemmon. The trip is well worth it with all of the breathtaking views. Just remember to swing wide when entering the park or you can donate a travel trailer fender like we did. No fault of the park. Be sure and plan a stay when in Tucson.

Very windy and dusty: but that is Arizona. We stayed 2 nights in order to visit the Grand Canyon, and it is well suited for that. WiFi is slow, but usable. Sites are very nice, but for sandal wearers, the pea gravel was torture. Very convenient to Williams also. Campground was clean and office staff friendly. We would recommend this place for anyone visiting the Canyon, which every American should see. Absolutely beautiful.

Date of Stay:

Marginal cable TV meaning poor reception on cable and snowy picture. Wi-Fi weak and slow but usable and limited download. Owner operators are friendly and well meaning. They also offer a home cooked breakfast and dinner. They will deliver to your site if you request it. Sites are roomy and level. Welding shop next door provides immediate and impressive trailer repairs if needed. We would return.

We were last here in 2006 and fell in love with the location - right on the Mississippi river flowing just outside of your door. Long, level pull through sites for easy set up. Good Wi-Fi but no cable available. Easy satellite acquisition. For the price paid, we got a nice concrete pad. Wish we could have stayed longer but we are on the way to the Grand Canyon. If you are in the area, spend a night or two. On a clear night, you might see Tom Sawyer and his friend, Huck, on a raft in the river. Or you might just stop drinking for the night.

Beautiful scenic campground in the mountains of Georgia. This is a state park and you must go to the lodge to register before camping. Only about 8 sites large enough for our motorhome and no cable or internet access. Satellite reception is possible at certain sites. We were lucky enough to get one. Some pet owners refused to pick up after their animals. Restrooms and showers were very clean, and the rangers rode through with some regularity. Excellent restaurants and entertainment nearby. Even with Verizon, cell phone use is limited.

We stayed two nights and would have stayed longer had we the time. Very friendly folks who run a well maintained campground. Everything easily accessible and worked well. Sites level and long for pull throughs. Our eight year old granddaughter had a great time with the goat petting and was joined by the owner's children. If you are visiting western NC and need a great place to stay, this is it. The road leading to the campground is extremely narrow but well marked.

Okay, folks, here's what you get for your $29.00. We're in a class A towing. Only thing available was combining 3 sites into one, but without sewerage. Fifty amps and water. Men's room is a portalet sitting 20 feet behind the office. After checking in, we had to wait ten minutes for the guide to park us across the street. We were advised that we were taking up 3 spaces, even though he was the one who parked us. No cable. Sites small and close, roads are dusty and gravel. Lots of workcampers blocking roads with trucks and reluctant to move. One and only visit.
