John Prince Park Campground, Palm Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is for a lakefront site. This is a large county park amidst the urban sprawl of Palm Beach County. Many of the waterfront sites are in circles, so only a few of them are directly waterfront, and in some cases the view is blocked by vegetation. There is a 14-day limit on the waterfront sites, after which you have to move to the inland sites, which are packed rather closely together. Your view there is dozens of other RVs. In March the campground was still filled with long-term snowbirds, many from Canada. The restrooms are rather dated. The attached shower rooms were OK, plenty of hot water & good pressure. The laundry room has 8 washers ($2) & 8 dryers ($1) that require tokens, which are sold in the office in $10 rolls, with no refunds. The campground is a very good value compared to other options in the area. It is also adjacent to a county airport for small private planes. Not much noise when I was at the waterfront site, but there was some on 1 of the 4 days I was at an interior site. Be careful using your GPS, mine took me to the entrance for the Park's Golf Center, which is next to the main entrance and would be tight for larger rigs. Use the main entrance on Congress Avenue and follow the signs to the campground. We camped at John Prince Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Assateague State Park, Berlin, Maryland

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

Rate reflects the non-weekend 50% discount for the Maryland Golden Age Pass (age 62+) - which is AVAILABLE FOR OUT-Of-STATE RESIDENTS, too - plus the Reserve America fees. I reviewed this park in 2014, and not much has changed. Beach is just on the other side of the dunes, and is never crowded since the day-use part of the park is well-separated from the campground. It's almost like having a private beach. Interior roads and camping pads are paved, rest of campsite is sand/dirt/grass/weeds. Only one loop has electric and it is usually full in summer. Drinking water is available at the dump station. There is no shade, but temperatures are usually ~5° cooler than inland areas, with a sea breeze, too, but not always. The wild horses wander through the campsites, but are no problem if you follow the rules. As would be expected, there's some horse manure around, and clean-up seems to be done rarely, if at all. Ticks are also present. The bath houses have been modernized since I last reviewed the park. Showers are a little cramped, but with plenty of hot water and good pressure. They are cleaned daily, but with heavy use they can be a bit sandy. No WiFi, except at Camp Store/Snack Bar, but I did OK with my cell phone hot spot via AT&T. This is a great park if you value proximity to the beach, as I do, but some may not care for its lack of shade or modern amenities. We camped at Assateague State Park in a Motorhome.

Some pretty good restaurants about 6 miles back on Route 611 towards Route 50: the Decatur Diner, an old style diner that's excellent for breakfast; and just a little further down the road, Smoker's Barbecue Pit, which has great food (pulled pork & potato salad are personal favorites) for takeout or dining in a screened-in seating area (no A/C).

Lake Anna State Park, Spotsylvania, Virginia

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed 3 days mid-week in one of the 23 Electric & Water sites when the campground was perhaps two-thirds full. There are an equal number of No-Hookup sites in another loop, as well as some Tent-Only sites. There are quite a few cabins available for non-RVers, too. Most of the sites are back-ins on the edge of the campground road, with a few pull-thru sites in the center. Sites appeared level, with considerable shade, and enough vegetation to provide good separation from neighboring sites. The camping pad is gravel, and pretty long - I had about 90 feet and many appeared comparable. The large fire ring & picnic table area is light-colored, densely-packed pebbles. The bathouse was pretty clean, as were the 4 spacious individual shower rooms on the back. Plenty of hot water & good pressure. Bathouse also has laundry facilities, although I did not use them. The map says the paved trail to the lake is half a mile, but it seemed a bit longer. You can also bike or drive. The lake area has a nice sandy beach (with lifeguards), snack bar, playground & gift shop. Gets quite a few day use visitors, too. Had enough cell phone service via AT&T to use the hotspot for Internet without any problem. Got a few over-the-air TV stations, too. Overall, Lake Anna was similar to the other Virginia State Parks I've stayed at, and that's pretty good. We camped at Lake Anna State Park in a Motorhome.

Huntington Beach State Park, Murrells Inlet, South Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Nice park, typical of a well run State Park - just a 2 or 3 minute walk to the uncrowded ocean beach via trails & boardwalks. Lots of trees - many sites have some shade. Most sites are on the outside of large loops with bathhouses in the center of loop. That leaves plenty of room behind you, but the WiFi located at the bathhouses doesn't seem to reach all sites. If WiFi is important, get a site close to a bathhouse. My cell phone hot spot worked OK via AT&T. The bathhouses could be better. No paper towels or hot air hand dryer, and it takes a minute or two for the hot water to reach the showers. Showers are a bit cramped, and have some cracked & broken tiles, but are OK even if it's about time for an update. Camp store looked fairly well-stocked, and also serves as the check-in site. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads, Roanoke Rapids, North Carolina

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

Very convenient place to overnight when traveling on I-95. Not much more than a mile from the Interstate exit, but no road noise in the campground. There are 15 sites on paved interior roads with paved camping pads, and 40 on dirt/gravel roads with dirt/gravel/grass campsites, which is what I had. There are also 13 sites designed for those arriving after the office closes. About a half dozen sites come with a very nice gazebo for $5 more. My rate includes AAA discount, for full hook-ups & cable TV (only about 20 channels, no ESPN, but worked well). WiFi also worked pretty well. Almost all the sites are pull-thrus, about 60 feet long, and everything looked level, but there is no shade. The restrooms/showers were the best I've seen in a campground (marble sinks!) and very clean. Only 3 (men's) showers, but most campers were in large rigs and appeared to use their own facilities (I was in a Class B motorhome). They have a small swimming pool(~20 yards length), hot tub, playground, miniature golf, and an outside (covered) pool table. Nice place for the price. We camped at The RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads in a Motorhome.

New Green Acres RV Park , Walterboro, South Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is for 30 amp electric & water site, with AAA discount. Very convenient to I-95. That's both good & bad. You come off the exit, and very shortly the road to the campground loops you back toward the Interstate - you can see I-95 from some campsites near the near the office. The hum of road traffic is audible throughout the campground while outside, not that much in the motorhome. The interior roads are dirt, and the sites (all pull-thrus) are level and very long (over 100 feet); not real wide, but big rigs won't have a problem extending their slideouts. Sites are nicely shaded by lots of tall pines. The bathrooms/showers are quite dated, but reasonably clean with plenty of hot water and good pressure, although the showers are somewhat cramped. Couldn't connect to the free wifi in 10 attempts between 4:00 PM & midnight. My cell phone hotspot via AT&T worked OK. Picnic tables, but most sites didn't have fire rings. Pretty good price for a convenient overnight stop (50 amp and/or full hookup sites with cable TV are a bit higher). We camped at New Green Acres RV Park in a Motorhome.

Stagecoach RV Park, St Augustine, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

Overnighted here on a trip further south. Very convenient location - not much more than half a mile from the I-95 exit. Check in was efficient; and staff was friendly. They hand out a sheet with directions to restaurants, groceries, banks, drug stores, local businesses & tourist attractions; most of it just a few miles away. Restrooms were very clean, and the showers had plenty of room. Sites are dirt, sand, maybe a bit of grass, and a little gravel. Not sure how well they drain - as others have mentioned there is 2-3 inch ditch that parallels the roads along the campsites - perhaps to improve drainage? The park was near full when I was there on a weekday, and most were in large rigs that appeared settled in for multi-day stays (or longer). WiFi was pretty good for surfing the Internet, didn't try to stream anything. I'd stay here again if I needed a convenient place to overnight, although the price is a bit high even with the 10% AAA discount. We camped at Stagecoach RV Park in a Motorhome.

First Landing State Park, Virginia Beach, Virginia

Date of Stay: August, 2015 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate was for non-specific site, including the Reserve America fee. Great location just barely inside the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. The beach is about 100-150 yards across the dunes via boardwalks at selected points, and very uncrowded since it's just campers using it. Lots of tent sites, and sites limited to 20 foot & 30 foot RVs, as well as some larger sites. Campground roads might be tight for large rigs, as would some sites, but there were RVs of all types when I was there. A few sites aren't that level, and shade varies considerably, too. Folks who are picky may want to utilize the site-specific reservation option (costs extra). Vegetation separates adjoining sites, but you are rather open to the site directly across the narrow road in some spots. There is a pretty good camp store that stayed open until 11:00 PM when I was there, as well as laundry facilities, and you're only a mile away from a grocery store & drug store just down the road from the park. It's only a short drive to the Virginia Beach oceanfront if that is of interest. Although I did hear helicopters a couple times a day, they weren't that loud unless they flew directly overhead, and that lasted about 30 seconds. They might be more active at other times, but I wouldn't think most people would be bothered. We camped at First Landing State Park in a Motorhome.

South of the Border, Dillon, South Carolina

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

Stopped overnight coming & going on Florida trip in March. Very convenient, easiest on/off Interstate that I have encountered, but no noticeable road noise in the campground. Gas stations, restaurants & convenience store in South of Border complex, too, but the self-service car/RV wash ($2) is the big plus if you drive thru snow/slush to get there. The restrooms are a bit dated, and the hot water in the showers takes quite a while to arrive, but everything works and is reasonably clean. Campground discounts for just about everyone - AAA, AARP, Good Sam, Military - so an excellent choice for a reasonably priced, no-hassle overnight stop. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

Jetty Park Campground, Cape Canaveral, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

Location is the best feature of Jetty Park. The campground is fenced off from the rest of the park but with many gates with entry code locks for campers. Walk thru the gate and you're in the beach parking lot, just a short walk to miles of sandy Atlantic Ocean beach. There is a fishing pier, too (no license needed on pier), as well as a fairly large playground, and a refreshment stand that offers a decent piña colada for less than $5. The park is just south of the Kennedy Space Center, separated by a narrow shipping channel that large cruise ships come & go through almost daily - four went out in our 1st hour at the park. Sites are pretty tight in the area closest to the beach. Not that many trees and shade was limited for most. We were there in mid-March, and it was still mostly "snowbirds" in large rigs with towed vehicles, some parked cheek by jowl. The area further from the beach by the office/store gives you a bit more room. There are also 20+ sites in the beach area outside the fenced in campground that are water-only, and not much more than parking lot spaces. We watched a nighttime Kennedy Space Center rocket launch from the beach, check the launch schedule if you visit. The campground store is pretty well stocked, and not outrageously priced. Staff was helpful and efficient. The [mens] restrooms could be cleaner. Sand is a big problem at beachfront parks, but I've seen others do better. Some broken hooks in shower stalls, too. WiFi (Tengo) was rather slow and intermittent. I eventually opted to use my cellphone's personal hotspot (via AT&T) and that was much better. Although there a few things they could do a little better, I hope to camp here again. We camped at Jetty Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Moss Park, Orlando, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $18.00
Overall Rating:      

A very good county park. Not that much variation in campsites, they all looked reasonably level and about the same size. Lots of trees and plenty of shade. Quite a bit of separation from adjoining sites, too. Bathrooms were clean and the showers were spacious. The park has a nice sandy beach on the lake, but that's near the park entrance, nearly a mile away from the campground but with plenty of parking. Staff was fine, but the park doesn't do online reservations, and doesn't take phone reservations on weekends. They'll check availability & tell you to call back Monday. Still, it's a bargain and I'd stay there again if in the area. We camped at Moss Park in a Motorhome.

Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park, Jacksonville, Florida

Date of Stay: March, 2015 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed just 1 night (during a trip further south) because it was convenient to the Jacksonville Airport (about 35 minutes) and on the ocean. Interior roads are paved but rather narrow, and not all one way, either. Might be a bit of a challenge for larger rigs if you meet oncoming traffic. The campground is heavily wooded, and sites are shady & sandy. Heavy vegetation separates you from the adjoining campsites, but you are fairly open to those across the narrow roads. Bathrooms are a bit dated, but pretty clean. The ocean beach area is a bit of a hike, probably too much if you're carrying anything, but maybe OK for a jogger. However, there is plenty of parking for those that drive over. I was there in early March, so it wasn't really beach weather, but it is a large area that should easily accommodate campers and day-use visitors. Lots of bikers, apparently the campground roads are very popular for biking & hiking. Security seemed good, with a code needed to access the campground (about a mile in from the park entrance) and bathhouses. I'd camp here again if I was looking for a good campground at a nice beach. We camped at Kathryn Abbey Hanna Park in a Motorhome.

Fort De Soto Campground, Tierra Verde, Florida

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate is for a waterfront site ($5 more). Great water views, although some are limited by mangrove trees, as indicated on the campground map. Camp fee includes admission to the entire park. The North Beach is the best feature - white sand and clear, warm water, and only a few people on the mid-week days we were there. Sites are level, well-shaded, and somewhat separated from neighboring sites by the heavy vegetation. Sand is plentiful, but you're on the water, so it comes with the territory. A hand vac by the entrance minimized the problem. Restroom/bathouse was clean and also had washer ($1.00) & dryer ($.75). Staff was friendly and efficient. Camp store had the basic necessities and serves ice cream! Bring lots of quarters for the bridge tolls ($.75 & $.50) that you encounter getting to the park. AT&T cell phone service was good. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate is for 30 amp, back-in site with AARP discount. Very convenient to I-95 - easy on & off, but road noise wasn't noticeable in the campground. South of the Border is "fashionably tacky" at best, but it's pretty good for an overnight stop at a reasonable price. I camped on a Friday in mid-September and less than 20% of the campground was occupied, which made for a quiet setting. Sites are level, and reasonably sized. Restroom/bathhouse was clean although a bit dated. Gas, souvenirs, fireworks, restaurants and shopping are readily available at the complex. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

Assateague State Park, Berlin, Maryland

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $44.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is all about the beach. It goes on for miles, and you mostly can't even see the bath houses or other low buildings on the other side of the dune line. Stayed for 2 days midweek, and you could easily have no one near you on the beach. Might be more crowded on weekends. I didn't down rate the park for what it doesn't have, but it could matter to some. Only one loop has electricity, and it fills up fast so reservations are advised. No water at campsites, but it's available at the dump station. There is no shade, and when the temperature hit 95, the A/C didn't keep our coach that cool. The bath houses were OK, perhaps a bit overused while some are closed for renovation. Staff was friendly and efficient. We camped at Assateague State Park in a Motorhome.
