Springsteel Resort and Marina is a fishing resort with a handful of campsites for non-seasonal folks. There are 2 full service sites. The rest are electric only. They do not take reservations. Arrive, select a site that suits you, and then go to the bait house and complete a guest reservation form. You pay when you leave. The open campsites are on the left just before you reach the restaurant and bait house. The folks here are crazy about fishing in Lake of the Woods. They are super friendly and stop by to visit. The restaurant is pretty good. The view of the lake is pretty good, too. You are very near (3 miles) Canada, so if your cell phone works, it may think it is in Canada. We stayed here as a staging spot to visit the Northwest Angle, the Northern most spot in the lower 48 states. Once in the Angle, we found that there is a campground there at another fishing resort. We liked Springsteel. We used the boat ramp to launch our kayaks and had a paddle in the lake. Lake of the Woods is really big, it is the 37th largest in the world.

This park is a special and unusual place. It is a strip of 23 campsites in the narrow strip of land between the Mississippi River and a train track. On the other side of the train track is a road and on the other side of the road is the levee that protects the town of Canton MO from flooding. The campground is right next to a lock and dam, and you can watch barges go through the lock. We stayed one night and got to watch quite a few go through. When we woke up in the morning, we found several barges in front of our campsite waiting their turns. Great fun! Some of the sites are full service, ours was just water and electric. The campground seemed to be a favorite of local folks who come from 50-60 miles away to enjoy the River. The view of the Mississippi is extraordinary. If you are in a motor home, you back in to your campsite, with the River right outside your front window. There are no bath houses, there is a porta-potty, so you must be self-contained. If you call their phone number, you get City Hall. The folks at City Hall post a list of which sites are reserved on a bulletin board at the entrance. You pay by check or cash using an honor box. The train has been mentioned in other posts. It goes through 2 intersections with roads near the campground, and blows its whistle for each intersection, no matter the time of day or night. The train clatter is loud and long. However, it wasn't awful, it just adds to the uniqueness of this campground. We would definitely stay here again!

This state park is absolutely beautiful. It is well used but still kept very clean. We camped in the Oak and Spruce Loops. A paved trail takes you to the lake front where you can enjoy the lake, swim, fish, and rent bicycles and boats. There is a nice sand beach with shallow water and a sand bottom. The lake is gorgeous. It is shaped like an inverted "Y", and each arm is very thin, so you can see the green forest on the other side. The headwaters of the Mississippi are at one end of the lake. The water is shallow there, so you can wade and take your picture walking across on stepping stones. The campsites have electricity only. Some of the water sources along the road are set up for you to fill your tanks, others are not. The dump is in the Bear Paw campground a mile or so away. The campsites are spacious and widely spaced. Ours was level. There is lots to do here. Bring your bicycles, everyone gets around on bikes. There is an extensive paved trail system for bicycles throughout the park. There was a very nice playground on our loop that was always full of happy children. If you get tired of doing things, you can always just sit back and enjoy the peace. A very lovely spot.

We needed a place to camp in Minneapolis over July 4, and (of course) every campground was full. Town & Country put us on a waiting list, and called a few days later to tell us they had a site for us. It was a newly created full service site in the corner between the laundry room and the pool. The campground was full and hopping with many, many families. We arrived just after the July 4 Bicycle Parade. The campground really emptied after the weekend. The staff were so helpful and great to work with. It was a nice place to stay!

We arrived at this campground without a reservation on the July 4 holiday weekend. The campground was full, but the camp hosts fit us in to a smaller electricity only site. It was perfect for us, we just needed to stop the night after visiting the Effigy Mounds National Monument (Happy 100th Birthday NPS!) a few miles away. Once in, we discovered what a fabulous gem this campground is. It sits on the top of a very, very tall bluff overlooking where the Wisconsin River meets the Mississippi River. The view is extraordinary. They have built a series of concrete viewing platforms overlooking the rivers. Definitely, a great place to stop. I recommend you make a reservation though - we got lucky.

This is a wonderful location for seeing or doing business in downtown St. Louis. The campground is almost a square city block. As other reviewers have mentioned, it is an asphalt parking lot with many full service sites crowded together. You are asked to take your dog for a walk outside the park, there is no grass. However, you are just a few blocks from public transportation or you can take an inexpensive cab to where you want to go. No driving, no parking. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Upon check in, you get a map of town with restaurants and areas of interest noted by hand on the map. The phone number for the cab company is provided on your site map of the campground. The swimming pool looked inviting, but we were so busy doing tourist stuff that we didn't take time to swim. We would definitely stay here again.

This city run campground is next to a lovely lake. The sites are close together and our section had sites back to back. We changed sites because we were given a site behind a long 5th wheeler that had extended into our campsite. The access to this campground from the interstate was very easy. The campsites were clean. The utilities worked very well. In the morning, there was a parade of boats on trailers coming into the park to be used for fishing in the lake. Didn't really impact the campers, but was interesting to see how many people went fishing on a pretty mid-week late June day.

This lovely, small park is perfect for an overnight stay just off of I-64 exit 150. The campsites are located along the top of a hill with gorgeous views on all sides of the surrounding mountains. Down the hill are pastures with cattle dotting the glen down below. Very serene. Camp host, Russ, was very helpful and informative. The utilities are easy to reach and work well. The wifi is strong. Most sites are level (hard to come by in the mountains). You can see a piece of I-64 coming from behind a hill, and if you sleep with the windows open you can hear the shushing sound of traffic going by. Not loud or intrusive. We will stay here again if we are passing through. A good bet for a stop.

We have stayed at this campground before and knew what to expect. It is off of I-95 and seems to cater to travelers coming off the highway for the night. We have never seen anyone there for an extended stay. The sites are close together, but we've never had anyone next to us for it to matter. The roads are dirt and get muddy when it rains. Our site was level. The utilities were easy to reach and use. The over-air TV reception was fine. This is a good place to stop for the night as long as you don't want frills.

We stayed in the Beach campground which is a narrow spit of land with campsites on it. Our site was on the "creek" side, so we saw the tides come in and recede feet from our front door. It was a great spot for nature watching! We did have a racoon visit our site each evening, so put your food away! The beach is a very, short walk away, and it is absolutely beautiful. Many, many shells on the sand. The campsite was a bit tight for our 30 foot rig. We only attached to electricity, having heeded other reviewers warnings about the water. We really liked this campground. Go to the Nature Center and take the hike to the Coastal Marker from 1850. The signage along the path and the marker itself were fascinating.

We stayed at Fleetwood in March and again in May, both times while we visited a relative in Jacksonville. As other reviewers have stated, the 10 "visitor" spots are all at the front of the park, across a parking area from Route 1. The rest of the park is for long-termers and permanent units. Some of them are run down. That said, the utilities were convenient and easy to use. If you are in 1A - your cable outlet is on your "door" side on the neighbor's utility pole. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The office is closed on weekends, but you can reach a staff member by phone if you need one. There was a mix-up with our site when we arrived on a Sunday, and the manager fixed it right away.

Every campsite at Lazy Days is laid out the same, and this predictability can be found throughout the campground. The streets are wide and the turns gradual. Some turns and roads were made narrow by the cars parked in front of some of the RVs. The pool is lovely in a giant screen room. You get coupons for breakfast and lunch at a cafeteria across the way - the food is OK. You pass new and previously owned RVs to get there and there is a trolley to ferry you between the two places. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed the first time to attend the Lazy Days Drivers Confidence Course. We would recommend the course. We came back a month later to see some friends in Tampa. We needed service on our coach before our second stay and were surprised to find that we had to book service about a month out beyond when we called.

Our positive experience matches those of other reviewers. This park is being transformed into a wonderful park. The new owners and their management team are phenomenal, and have infused the park with energy and enthusiasm. They are welcoming and helpful. The new laundry room is great. Many sites have new cement patios and shrub hedges. The roads are wide and covered with new gravel. When we were there, they were installing 4 trailers that you can rent for a stay in St. Augustine. Everything is clean, clean, clean. And this is just the beginning, they have great plans for more. All of this has been done in only 5 months! If you happen to be there on a Friday, there is a camp fire, and Saturdays live music (which was really quite good) on a stage near the camp fire. Bring your own chair, kick back and enjoy. We requested and received a shaded site under an old oak tree draped in Spanish Moss. If you like sunny sites away from trees, they have those as well. This park is a diamond being polished, and worth a visit. Added bonus - it is only 15 minutes from historic downtown St. Augustine!

We really loved this county-run park. There are 2 campgrounds, one for folks with dogs, and one for the other folks. Our campsite was surrounded in a U with Florida forest. It made us feel really secluded from our neighbors - though we could see them through the greenery. The waterfront campsites are lovely (though we didn't have one). The park has a dog beach on the Tampa Bay shoreline where you can hang out on the beach with your dog off a leash. We saw quite a few families set up with chairs and umbrellas for the day. All the dogs got along well, and owners were really good about controlling their dogs. There is also an enormous fenced dog park. Further along the road, the "people" beach has lovely white sand and looks out on the gorgeous green water of the Gulf of Mexico. The park is very bike friendly, and motorists will actually stop for you as you cross a street (either on foot or bicycle). We also enjoyed a great kayak paddle right off one of the waterfront campsites. The park ranger I spoke with was almost surly, yet the camp hosts were super friendly and helpful. The online reservation system is challenging to use. At the time I made my reservation, it looked like I had booked the last available site in the dog area. Yet, when we were there easily 1/3 of the sites were empty. We loved it here and will definitely camp here again.

We initially camped in a waterfront spot (with the water inches from the back of our rig) for 4 days. We liked Key West and Boyd's so much that we stayed for another 4 days, this time in an "inland" spot for $105 a night. While we were there in mid-April there were lots of inland sites to choose from. Both of our sites had a concrete patio and a nice picnic table. There was a "beach" that was not for swimming that we used for launching our kayaks and swimming our dog. The campground was clean and the staff were super friendly and helpful. The laundry room was very clean and had lots of washers and dryers. The pool was pleasant, with Jimmy Buffet and his type of music piped in. There is a boat ramp and a dock. If you visit the dock, look for the pelicans roosting at night on the mangrove island just across the way. Other guests were friendly. On the weekend, the tent sites filled up but we didn't find it overly loud. The Naval Air Station is on the next Key down, and the jets take off and land all day long. They are very loud, but you get used to them. Key West could not be more convenient - just a few miles away. We will definitely stay here again.
