We stayed here for 7 days. Apalachicola and nearby St. George Island are the main attractions with easy access to the National Seashore. The park is across the road from Apalachicola Bay. The view on the first tier is spectacular, but I would imagine the road noise is always present. We had a site on the third tier, which was a bit more quiet. The park is meticulously maintained. Staff is friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are resort style and immaculate. The roads are wide enough for our large fifth wheel and truck, and parking was adequate on our site for our vehicle. As summer season was approaching, many campers came equipped with boats, trailers, and extra vehicles. The park rules stated it allowed only 1 vehicle per site, but the rule was not enforced, making it a bit crowded. Construction on new sites at the rear of the campground may provide additional parking for extra vehicles when it is completed. We would return to this campground.

This is a convenient stop along I-75 on the way to Florida. The sites are just long enough for our truck and fifth wheel, but the motorhome in the spot ahead of us kept their tow vehicle attached in the road ahead of us. We were not able to position our fifth wheel to take advantage of the paved patio and our step was in the grass along side the site. The host brought us to the site and positioned us, so it is unclear why he didn't notice the problem. He reassured us that if we didn't need to leave too early in the morning that the motorhome would be leaving the next day to allow enough room for us to pull out of our site. The services work well. The bathroom is a single seater in a shed building on property. Not bad for a one night stay, but we will look for another property when traveling this way again.

The campground is one of the cleanest we have seen in the area, with paved roadways and pads. Whoever designed the park must have never driven an RV. The sites were at a 90 degree angle to the roadway making entry either into the pull-through or the back-ins nearly impossible. The roadways were narrow and we were unable to back up our fifth wheel into the first site we were assigned because of vehicles parked on the adjacent sites. We took another site that allowed us to use the roadway better for angling our entry. The services worked well, 50 amp, water, sewer, and cable. There is a free shuttle to a nearby casino. As previous reviews have mentioned, the bathrooms are spectacular. Showers are roomy, clean, and updated. After the initial difficulties getting into our site, it was a wonderful place to stay for a couple of days.

Our site was level and long enough to accommodate our truck and fifth wheel. The services, 50 amp, water, and sewer worked well. There is no cable. There was a very severe storm while we were there so we were happy to be away from the trees but were unable to raise the antenna for TV. The road was paved but narrow. Sites were gravel. It was a good stop for an overnight stay.

Our site was long enough for our truck and fifth wheel, gravel, and fairly level. The roads are narrow with many trees. Roads are poorly marked for traffic direction. We left in a thunderstorm and could barely differentiate the sites from the road. We had a site far from the trees. Services, 50 amp, water and sewer all worked fine. There is no cable and just a few antenna stations, so if you have satellite ask for a spot out in the open. The access from I-75 was long, narrow, with rolling hills. There is little else in the area, so we would stay here again if we are nearby.

Our site was long, paved,but somewhat unleveled. The large trees make some sites inappropriate for a big rig but for the most part are well trimmed. Roads are paved and narrow. The entrance road is quite narrow but passable without oncoming traffic. Be alert at the entrance to the campground, there is a blind curve when making the left into the driveway. The services, 50 amp, water, sewer and cable all worked well. The town of Sweetwater is small but you can get farm fresh vegetables and groceries within a five mile drive.

Our site had 30 amp, water, and sewer. Cable connection at site did not work. When we questioned the host, we were told that the infrastructure was intact but the provider had not sent the hardware needed for the system. Antenna was very sketchy. Wifi was sporadic and unreliable. The roads were wide but trees not trimmed for big rig access. We needed to maneuver around a very large branch and watched others do the same. Management took care of that tree when notified, but other trees were also in need of trimming. One large pine near our site had a low hanging bough that was right over a fire pit. Bathrooms were functional, nothing fancy here. A bit pricey for what you get.

Our site was long, grassy and level with 30 amp service, water and sewer. The restrooms were quite a distance from our site. Showers were 50 cents, water flow was good but the floors were not clean and the facility dated. It was quiet and peaceful at night. We visited the Apostle Islands from there but it was a significant ride to Bayfield for the tour boat. There is not much else to do there. There were some off roaders at the campground and it seems that it is the big draw for this location. It is a good place for an overnight stay

We had a back in grassy gravel site. It was level with shared pedestals for 30 amp service and water. The water pressure was high necessitating a flow restrictor. The roads were poorly maintained with large potholes which filled with water from the rain. The park is convenient to town and the locks. It was enjoyable to watch the passing ships from our site. Overall it was a pleasant stay with adequate room between sites and quiet neighbors. We would stay here again if returning to the area.

Sites are level, gravel, and long enough for even the biggest rigs and tow, Quiet setting. All services, 50 amp, sewer, and water worked well. Bathrooms were clean and showers roomy. Bring the bikes, there are great trails from here. We would stay here again.

This is primitive camping at its best. There is potable water available at the entrance to the campground but no other services. Their are two loops, the left loop appropriate for small pop-up trailers and tents, and the right loop with pull-through sites. Many sites would be difficult for a big rig due to low branches and leaning trees. Two sites, 42 and 43, are on the left side of the blacktop parking area across from the self registration kiosk. We had #43 and positioned our door and windows to face the meadow. It was level with lots of room for our slides and truck. It made for a surprisingly private site. Considering the rain we had on our last night, it also made for an easier pack up to leave. We enjoyed many of the programs and trails offered by the NPS and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

Sites are long and level. We had full hookups with 50 amp service. All services worked well. Call for directions. You must travel about 1 mile on a rough gravel road. The roads are wide enough to navigate with a big rig. Trees offer shade but are trimmed adequately not to interfere with maneuvering or positioning the RV. We would stay here again.

This is an older KOA, and like most KOAs are well used and tired. Our site was fairly level, gravel, with a picnic table. It was long enough to accommodate our rig and truck. There are large trees for shade, but trimmed adequately to maneuver the roads and site. The services (50 amp, cable, water and sewer) all worked well. The park is convenient to town for shopping, restaurants, and services, and an easy off from I-94. We did not have reservations, but the hosts accommodated us politely and led us to the site. He checked all the services to be sure all was working before we set up. The park was full by evening, but quiet and comfortable. We would stay here again if passing through the area.

Gravel Sites are located on a steep terraced hill, but are level and long enough for our truck and rig. There is good space and green lawn between sites. We had a fantastic view from site 14. Restrooms were spotless. The hosts greet you with an ice cream, guide you to the site, and checks to see if all services are accessible. They are helpful and friendly. Wi-Fi was unreliable and there are only 4 air broadcast stations. This is our second time at this park and enjoyed our stay.

Sites were gravel and easily leveled with additional boards. Our site was a pull through reached by traveling the road which takes an S shaped turn around the office. Trees, posts, and hanging branches made it difficult to navigate. No one from the office guided you to the site, and on the way, a large tree branch grazed the entire side of our rig leaving a large scratch. Getting out was just as difficult with a large bark scarred pine right at the exit of the site. We managed to avoid that one, but obviously others were not as lucky. All services worked fine. There is no cable and no antenna, so have some other entertainment planned if visiting here.
