Park is new and very convenient to the interstate. New office/cafe and comfortable, clean bathhouse with friendly staff who guide you to your site and help you back in. Gravel sites with new power/cable TV connection posts. Some road noise from the highway. A great place to stop traveling north or south or to visit local attractions.

Date of Stay:

Stayed before the weekend, reservation website will show available sites but must reserve at least two nights in order to book plus Reserve America reservation fee. Weekend most sites were reserved, mixture of grass field and reservoir/lakeside sites. Main roads are paved, roads in campground are gravelly as are the campground parking sites. Sandy beach is a distance walk from campground which make the sites more private. Bathhouses are older and have individual toilet and separate shower units. Most sites are level and well spaced, low hanging tree branches make some campsite roads difficult to maneuver with bigger rigs. No hook-ups but good dump station and water connection by campground entrance.

Date of Stay:

Clean, level campground with a number of seasonal sites. Friendly owners who offer wagon rides for the kids. The biggest problem are the bathhouses which need attention. Push button shower only gets warm and shuts off quick, plenty of cobwebs and leaves in unheated shed.

Located on the Sante Fe River, park has two campgrounds – Dogwood and Magnolia. Dogwood is more hilly but with level sites located close to the park entrance. Magnolia is more level with sites which have been recently “corralled” with split rail fencing and a centrally located bathhouse which is closer to the river. Both campgrounds have on-site hosts. Bathhouses are very clean with large, tiled showers and spacious dressing area with heat lamps. No laundry facilities. Originally developed as a CCC camp which built the suspension bridge over the Santa Fe River in 1938, many original buildings survive with a small free museum open. There is a Nature center is open on weekends. Seven trails ranging from .6 miles to over 4 miles hike-able unless the river floods them. The river begins its subterranean flow from the River Sink trail for over three miles until it resurfaces on the River Rise trail. Only a few broadcast television channels from Gainesville are available but acceptable Verizon broadband service.

Date of Stay:

Conveniently located, sites are level and adequately spaced. Although next to I-95, traffic noise is minimal since the highway is flat. Transient sites are located near the front of the park with one row facing a lake with ducks and gazebo, Longer term seasonal sites and park models are located towards the back the campground. Older bathhouse had tiled showers and was clean, connected laundry room was comfortable and reasonably priced. Large store with groceries in park office. Pool was not heated but well maintained with chaises and tables around the deck. High mast lighting from the highway and well maintained campground lighting provides good security and safety lighting. Would return again. Some broadcast TV signals were strong.

Date of Stay:

Very clean and spacious wide open level sites with a few tall pines. Packed sandy drive through campground. Attentive camp host on first site. Bath house/laundry is concrete block without screening in showers with open decorative blocks which admit bugs. Park is large and has animal preserve/zoo. Park is gated at night but often has events in pavilion adjacent to the campground when the gates would be open to the public after dark. Albany has local broadcast television which has a good signal.

Date of Stay:

Spacious treed sites located on three loops with paved road and level gravel sites with camp hosts available. Clean bathhouses with laundry facilities had heat lamps over the dressing area in the showers. One can sit and hear the Stephen Foster Memorial carillon play his most famous tunes at 10-12-2 and 4. Museum and campanile are open with exhibits, store with gift items and snacks is adjacent to craft village with artisans demonstrating their craft: weaving, pottery, blacksmith, jewelry. Suwanee River runs past the park with overlooks and original bathhouse to visit. Adjacent to the historic town which is walkable and easily accessible by bicycle for churches, a couple restaurants and convenience stores with a Dollar General providing a grocery line.

Date of Stay:

One of the quietest and friendliest TT parks. Located in the country, west sites are next to a cow pasture, east sites are next to woods and hammock forest. Very popular campground with few open sites in early March. Some sites are narrow and deep, others are wider, very few paved sites. Large trees between sites, live oaks drop leaves all year on sites. Standing water close to sites to the west of the clubhouse during the dry season. Well kept clubhouse has pool tables and card room. Bathhouse and laundry $2./wash/dry are located in center of park. Men's shower has three plastic stalls with folding chairs in dressing cubicle, decorated in nautical motif. Small, older unheated pool is located next to highway with few chairs or chaises. No free WiFi, Tengointernet is pay as you go. Scheduled activities in season: bingo, musical jam session, ice cream social, church service, and craft sale bring residents together. Expensive laundry facilities - $2/ wash or dry. Several miles east to grocery and over a mile west to gas-convenience store and fast food by I-75 interchange. Only a few channels of over the air TV with weak signals. Acceptable broadband Verizon cellular.

Date of Stay:

Large well-kept, clean park with mix of mobile homes, park models, trailers, and motor homes. Short term sites appear to be on the row directly next to US-1. Pool adjacent to highway. Sites at the rear are close (rear row within 75 feet) to FL East Coast rail line with long rumbling freight trains at night. Several bathhouses and laundry facilities, clubhouse near the park entrance. Confirmation emails from office do not include reservation dates which office had in error. C confirm reservation before arrival or request written confirmation of dates to avoid extra charges! Acceptable over the air broadcast television.

County park is large and has a lake surrounded by paved hiking/bike paths. Campground is located in the SE corner of park. Well spaced, paved, level sites with large concrete patios adjacent to pull-through and back-in sites. Small trees provide little shade. Amtrak/CSX/Tri-Rail tracks on east side of campground next to cyclone security fence. Several Tri-Rail trains every hour from 5:30 am until 11 pm. Road noise from I-95 on the east and Sheridan street on the south side. Air-conditioned showers are clean, well kept, and secured with combination lock. Coin-operated laundry facilities are adjacent. No security gate but periodic roving night security guard patrols entire park which is locked at night. There is good security lighting around the campground road and between sites. Very slow free wi-fi service with intermittent internet availability, frequently the log-in authorization page would not even load. Good Verizon broadband cellular service and excellent over the air broadcast digital TV signals. Restaurants and convenience store are close and grocery store is accessible by bicycle. Close to Hollywood Beach which has county beachfront park with day parking or to state park in Dania Beach. About 60% french-speaking residents with mix of RV types.

Date of Stay:

Conveniently located park just off I-95 and Oakland Park Blvd. Has clubhouse, rec room, and newly resurfaced pool. Showers, laundry room, rec facilities are key locked as is the gate to Walgreen's next door for security purposes. Park should really have security gate as there were thefts from vehicles during the week. Wi-fi service is slow and at some places and times has weak signal. Good Verizon broadband cell service. Sites are close, some with small concrete patio, those which are well kept are by seasonal renters. Transient sites are not as clean. Neighbor kept outside radio blaring all day and until 10:30 pm whether present or not. Large number of seasonal sun-birds, most were french-speaking Canadians. Mix of fifth-wheels, trailers, park models, and all classes of RVs. Scheduled activities primarily for seasonal residents. Showers are large, tiled, with plenty of hot water. Laundry requires chip card with $5 increments. $1.50/very small load wash and then dry. There is good lighting around the park. Sites near the entrance will hear more road and I-95 noise, sites near the rear of the park will be quieter. Many seasonal renters have motorcycles. Small ants are a problem with seasonal residents spraying for themselves to control them. Office personnel are friendly and helpful, escorted to site with assistance in backing in tight spot.

Large campground with picturesque two week limit sites along Lake Osborne. Seasonal sites are grouped together in several loops. Large park with fishing, boating, and miles of paved hiking/bicycle trails. Convenient stores and bus stop are walkable, downtown Lake Worth, grocery stores, churches, dollar store, Harbor Freight, Costco, drugstores, fast food, and Tri-Rail station are bikeable. Security gate active 24 hours and security attendant at night. Well patrolled by rangers and security personnel. Large French-Canadian sunbird contingent with activities scheduled, friendly campers. Shower rooms can run out of hot water in the afternoon. Laundry facilities require tokens which must be purchased in $10. increments - $2/wash, $1/dry. Honey wagon service can be reasonably purchased M-W-F for water and electric only sites. Dump site also available at rear of campground. Allegro Drive is main drive in and out, sites close to the entrance on that drive get a lot of traffic, sometimes fast. Families with children may wish to stay further away from the entrance. Park personnel are helpful. Free WiFi is available and very good. Campground is located next to a county general aviation airport which gets much helicopter and small plane traffic, especially on the weekends when it appears that lessons and maneuvers are practiced all day. Several bus routes run outside the park. Playgrounds but no pool.

Very well maintained campground has new pool, recreational hall with free wi-fi, periodic activities and performances, a Tiki Bar open on weekend afternoons which serves as a social gathering place.

Date of Stay:

Campground offers three loops at the corner of the large county park which offers paved hiking and bicycle trails, popular disc golf course, dog park, sandy lake beach and ponds. A few are waterfront sites, all with full hook-ups, on grass. Ants can be a nuisance so bring spray. Bathhouses with laundry facilities are OK. Walking distance on sidewalks to Starbucks, fast food, a couple restaurants, major drug chains, and two grocery stores. Good wi-fi and over the air broadcast TV from Orlando. Small ants were the biggest problem around the sites. Bus routes leave from the neighboring East Florida State College to other Melbourne locations.
