This is fine for an overnight stay. Rate reflects Good Sam Discount. Campground close to I-80. Roads are gravel. Site was gravel and grass. Had a picnic table. They pick up trash. We stayed hooked up since we were only staying a night. Got level. Utilities were fine. Got TV over antennae. Pet run was very small,didn't use it. Plenty of places to walk the dogs. If the weather was good enough to leave the windows open, you'd hear the train all day long. Even with them closed you can hear them all night. Its fine for an over night stay. Not sure if I'd go back.

Rate based on 14 Nights and Good Sam Discount. Sites: Grass with table (ask for a fire pit). We were in the sites that didn't have cable (other sights did). Great site for satellite. Also locals antennae. Utilities good. WiFi good. They were close together, but we were able to get our awnings out. Long enough for rig and truck. No dog run, just an area for the dogs to be walked. Great location to see sights in the area. Make sure to go to the Visitors Bureau to pick up a free CD and map for a riding tour of the area. Would return again

Excellent location to explore the area. One hour from Mammoth National Park, 1/2 hour from Lexington and Louisville. Quiet campground with lots of shade (I didn't have satellite then, so I don't know if you could get signal, but I did see people have theirs set up). Got all the local channels on antenna. Right next to the golf course. The golfers didn't disturb you at all. You'd hear the ting of the ball being hit. You could walk the course at night. Great Wi-Fi, phone signals. The site we had did fit our 39 ft 5th wheel and we were able to park the truck on site too. The site was paved with grass next to it. It was wider on one side than the other, but that was good, due to the hookups being on one side. The roads into the park are wide enough. Once inside, its a little tight but we were able to back into our site without a problem. First I thought we saw 2 pull-throughs. The hookups were weird here. The electric was shared (which is fine) but on the wrong side of the trailer, as was the water. It was lucky that we had a long enough hose and electric cable. The sewer was also on the wrong side, but our hose reached. So many of the sites were like these that we saw. A man who had 20 amp site but didn't have an adapter, if he did, he barely had an enough electric cable to reach the pole. This campground is in need of updating. It was nice enough weather that we didn't need to put on our AC much, but when we did (we didn't need both) so it was OK that they only have 30 amp power. The camp host said that they are trying to see if they can expand the campground. Right now, the tent sites are closer to the road (it's not busy really). They might develop that into more RV sites and put the tents where the RVs are now. Or expand across the street where the picnic area is located now. I think if we were to go back to the area, we'd stay here again. But we'd ask for a certain site that has the hookups in a better positions. There isn't much choose around that area. This is the best of them.

Positives: The campsite right on the river to watch the barges. Our site was concrete but there were many that were gravel. It was long and wide enough for our 39 ft rig. Staff friendly and helpful. At site garbage pick up. No dog park, but plenty of places to walk our dogs. The free laundry was really nice. New machines Negatives: Roads into the campground up to the entry were horrible. NO Wi-Fi to speak of, no cable but got channels on antennae. The campground was "segregated" into 3 separate areas. One for 5th wheels mostly so that your back window looked onto the river (no shade). One for the "permanent" residents who worked nearby (this was shaded). One for motorhomes so that their front windshield looks out onto the river (that was shaded). Not that many bathrooms for the amount of sites. None on the 5th wheel side.

Positives: Good Wi-FI, cable and water pressure. Sites were wide enough and long enough to fit our 39 ft rig. Garbage pick up at site. Very clean. Staff helpful. Roads were wide enough to get around. Negatives: No shade at all. No community there. But we think due to the time of year. Lots of families groups.

Date of Stay:

Pros: The sites are wide enough and long enough for our 39 in trailer. There is a sense of privacy with trees or brushes. They recently paved the roads into the campground. Great locations close to downtown. Our son lives near campus and other relatives live south of the city. The campground is in between those locations. The staff was top notch, very friendly, and helpful. Cons: no real organized activities. We guess because there is this great city to explore. One third of the park is "monthly" residences. They go to work. Some of the rigs were older but clean. Not sure if we'd camp there again when we come back to the city.

This park will spoil you for any future campgrounds. It is pretty new campground. The sites are concrete, wide enough and long too. The landscape is beautiful. We were in the newer section so the trees weren't tall enough to provide shade. There are families and permanent residents there. They work in the oil companies. But, their rigs are neat and clean. There were a few older rigs but they kept their sites clean. Some nice activities. They have a block party every Friday night. At the community room, outside there are some grills that they fire up. You bring your own meal to cook and then eat with other people and chat. It's a nice way to interact with others. It is right next to the highway, but I didn't hear any noise. Great WI-FI. The person who set up it knows what he's doing. They have more than one connection. Great cable or if you have satellite you'd get easy access. I can't think of any negatives. If we're in the area again, we'd definitely come back. In fact, I'd like to duplicate it everywhere we go.

WOW, this campground is a dream. The sites are wide and long. We were joking that we expected someone to come between us and our neighbor- but no. We had a shaded site. The sites are on grass so I could see after a heavy rain that there would be puddles. The roads are paved and wide so easy in. They only have back in sites, but no problem backing in since the sites are so wide and long. So many activities and there is a community feel here. At the socials, they ask if there are new people, if people are leaving. You get greeted by so many people saying hello and welcome. The folks leaving get a fond farewell. The location is very countryside. But, its not far from the Gulf Shore, Fairhope and Foley (there is this huge boardwalk there). Good cellphone connection. No cable, but we got all the major networks and some more on the antennae. The wi-fi was OK and you have to pay. But we find that so in most campgrounds. Wi-FI is slow. Unless you are seasonal and get an individual box- it will be slow in most places. Everyone is so friendly. People just stopping by to chat. We had these people who invited us to breakfast before knowing our names. So nice. There is a separate section of private homes that are part of the campground. But they aren't park homes, they are regular houses. Some of the properties have motor homes and trailers that are under "barns" are they call them. But, they are decorated. All the properties are well kept. The only draw back was that the pool isn't open until May. Its too cold there in the winter to open it. But, when we got there it was warm enough, but that's when they open the pool. Also, no tables at the sites. I think if they had tables, I'd give this place a 10. The rate reflects Escapees (we had a 50 amp site so its $3 extra. By the way, they will be converting all the sites to 50 AMP so I guess that $18 for Escapees will be the rate for all sites). If in the area, I'd come back.

Great location for one night stay but also if you are staying there longer. Far enough from the city but close to the highways. The sites were long but narrow. They were well shaded also. There was a big area to walk the dogs but not a dog run. The campground was clean and well kept. We might come back if in the area because of the location.

Date of Stay:

Positives: Very clean campground. All the sites were clean and the permanent homes (park models) were well kept. The staff was friendly and helpful. The residents were very inviting and friendly. A nice dog run. A lot of activities but there were gearing down for the season. Negatives: Very few pull-through sites, which were long but very narrow. Mostly park model homes with a few RVs in between. The roads were paved but a little narrow and hard to navigate. Gravel sites that had some large rocks that you could trip on. I probably would go back there if in the area because of the people.

First, it's in Ft Lauderdale, which in itself is an urban area. The campground is located between a Walgreens and a strip shopping. Across the the street is one of the main post offices. You turn into the campground, which is not a private road. The road is shared with an assisted living facility. This campground was not crowded it was overcrowded. Most of the spots were barely big enough to accommodate the RV. Tow vehicles, trailers and toad vehicles were parked along fences and grass areas. In order to walk our dogs, we had to use the median strip of the public road. So, I wouldn't call it pet friendly but they do accept them. The residents weren't very friendly. They kept to their own groups (which 80% French Canadians). The staff was very friendly. The roads were paved but maneuvering was difficult due to the cars, etc. parked on the side of the road. The spots were level. There were a lot of activities even though they were gearing down for the season. The pool was clean. I wouldn't camp here again. I gave it a 5 because of the staff and the activities.

Very good location. Very friendly staff. Our site was in the middle. They are very close together there, but we had room to put out our awing. The premium sites are very wide and long. The owner has plans to upgrade alot of the sites to wider and longer. Park was clean and well kept. Rate reflects Passport America for 5 nights and regular rate for the last 2. Owner might not take Passport America in the future, but will continue Good Sam discounts. Would stay there again if in the area.

This was a great place. The sites where wide. We were by the stream. Very quiet place. Great dog park. If you fish, kayak, canoe- this is the place to go. It is gated so after hours it's closed. But, it is a county park, so it's opened to the public. We didn't have satellite. The campground didn't have cable. It hasn't been a problem using an antennae since we've been close enough to major cities to get major networks. But, here for some reason, we could only get ABC and WB. Also, it would be nice to have someplace to swim (you can't in the stream--alligators). Maybe a garbage can by the main bathroom/laundry. Other than that I would have given a 10. We did have a problem backing in because our site was opposite a large grassy area. So, my husband thought that's easy just to go straight back. But, it had rained there, so we ended up getting stuck in the mud. Thankfully we have road side. We don't blame the campground for that. It was our error.

First pay attention to reviews even if they are old. Negative: Tight roads, small spots. We have a 38 ft 5th wheel and we had to parallel park into a spot. The spot is mostly sand. Its mostly permanent and seasonal people. 95% of the units are run down and old. Basely a dump. We would have left but it took so long to pull into the spot that we said- OK we're here. Also, we couldn't find a campground with availability. Dogs over 25 lb are suppose to be muzzled. But, I have seen dogs that aren't leashed. My two dogs are over 25 lbs but we are close enough to the exit to just walk them on the road to the park across the street. Positive: Quiet, has a patio with a table. NO WAY WOULD I COME BACK. NOT BIG RIG FRIENDLY.

Rate reflects, RPI discount. First the positives. Beautiful entrance into the campground with the trees hanging over the road with the moss. Very clean campground with loads of community activities. Very convenient location to Daytona, St Augustine and the parks. Roads were paved and just wide enough. The sites were grassy with sand (but we are in Fl). Love the dog run The negatives. The entrance is a little narrow if there were two rv coming in. The wi-fi was only available from hot stops at the office and community house. We were lucky, we were close to the community house and used our booster and were able to get internet (slow though). Not enough dumpsters. Only one at the community house and one near the back of the campground. They need another closer to the front (even though, we were close to the community house- we saw the need for that). Some people let their dogs run off the leases. Our dogs got into with another dog. Luckily none of them were hurt. I would stay there again if in the area.
