Paul B. Johnson State Park, Hattiesburg, Mississippi

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful location on the shore of Lake Geimer. Many of the sites are right on the shoreline. The sites are narrow, leaving little room to sit outside. Many of the sites are closely spaced, especially the pull-through sites. There is nowhere to park an RV while checking in except on the road. The road leading into the park is very narrow. Even though it is two-lane, it is not wide enough for RVs to meet without one of them pulling off the road. There is a fair amount of highway noise. You also have to cross a dam that is under water on the road way. It was a little disconcerting but ok. We camped at Paul B. Johnson State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Clear Creek Recreation Area - USFS, Jasper, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Impressive campground with large, well-spaced paved sites. There is lots of shade and good visual separation between sites. Some of the sites have a good view of the lake. Site 82 has trees blocking some of the view, but it is still a great site. It is level and easy to back into with a big fifth wheel. There are some weird "double" sites, which are just extra wide sites with two electric boxes and two faucets. The few that were occupied had only a single unit on them. They are $48 per night. I guess you could put two RVs in one of these sites if one of them is very small. There is a nice wide sandy beach for swimming. There is no shopping real close, but Jasper is only 12 miles away and has everything. We camped at Clear Creek Recreation Area - USFS in a Fifth Wheel.

Dog Creek COE, Cub Run, Kentucky

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $12.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful campground on the banks of the Nolin River Lake. Some sites have electric and water (no sewer) and some are primitive. Most of the sites are big-rig friendly. The road from the interstate is narrow and curvy; it is doable, but be prepared for white knuckles. Mammoth Cave is about 30 minutes away if you take the ferry. No Wi-Fi or OTA TV, weak Verizon signal. The park attendant was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. There is a great hardware store and diesel/gas available in Cub Run. Beware that you cannot get on the interstate from 88 you have to go to 30 west. We camped at Dog Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Rocky Fork State Park, Hillsboro, Ohio

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

The Lakeside loop has full hookups and is very big-rig friendly. There is decent distance between sites. There are no trees or other vegetation separating sites. The sites are paved and level. The upper campground is more crowded with some sites close together. There is a mixture of full hookups, electric only, and primitive. Many sites are shaded. Some of the sites are big-rig friendly, but many are not. There is a nice playground for the youngsters and disc golf and putt-putt available for the rest of us. There is also a good boat launch. A problem we noted was the camphosts would move the tables onto the middle of the site. When you arrived you had to get out and move the table. this could be a problem in bad weather or if you had physical limitations. There was no logical reason for this when we asked. We camped at Rocky Fork State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

West Branch State Park, Ravenna, Ohio

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice park with mostly paved, widely spaced sites. Some of the sites have no visual separation between them. Some sites are easily accessible by big rigs, but many are not. The loop roads are narrow with ditches and trees located such that backing in a long fifth wheel can be very challenging. Many of the sites have a moderate slope. The landing gear on our fifth wheel is extended only about 3 inches, while the back jacks are almost fully extended. The entrance road has several very high speed bumps. The road from I-76 is in bad shape. Come in from the north through Ravenna if possible. The laundry is very nice, inside and with a folding table. The showers are good also. We camped at West Branch State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Alum Creek State Park, Delaware, Ohio

Date of Stay: October, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This is an excellent park with paved, widely spaced sites. There is ample vegetation around each site providing good visual separation. The park is very big rig friendly with easy access to the sites. We had no trouble backing our 41' fifth wheel in place. The full hookup sites also have a concrete patio. The access from the interstate is easy as well. Delaware is 5 miles away with plenty of shopping available. Columbus with all of its attractions is an easy drive. There was almost no place to park our truck. We camped at Alum Creek State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Loramie State Park, Minster, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

This is a lovely park on the shore of a small lake. It is well maintained and the camp sites are well maintained. The pads are paved and level, the utilities are placed correctly, and there is decent separation between sites. On the downside, the pads are perpendicular to the access road which makes backing in a challenge. There is no vegetation between sites to provide any visual separation. The sewer connection is just an open hole to put the hose into, so there is a problem with sewer smells. There are a couple of hiking trails, but not much else in the park. There is one loop with full hook-ups. Most sites have only electric. There is Wi-Fi in the park, but it is sometimes pretty slow. They do have laundry facilities at the bathhouse. We camped at Lake Loramie State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Cade Lake Park Campground, Sturgis, Michigan

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This is a basic campground with parallel back-in sites every 25'. The premium sites have 30 amp electric, water and sewer. The water is on the curb side in the middle of the patio area. Several sites have the sewer located way up front making hook up difficult. The sites are fairly level and well maintained. The upper sites are shady, but the lower sites are full sun. There is a short hiking trail and a pond with Johnny boats and kayaks available for rent. We camped at Cade Lake Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Located near the Elkhart area where we toured RV factories. The town of Sturgis has a nice little railroad museum. If you are there on Sunday go to the auditorium where they offer a nice breakfast or lunch buffet at a reasonable price.

Hoosier/Hardin Ridge Recreation Area, Heltonville, Indiana

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $8.00
Overall Rating:

This is a beautiful park nestled in the woods. Our site (204) was easy to get into with our 41' fifth wheel. I would give it a 10 except for two problems. The first and biggest was the site is very sloped left to right. Our curb-side tires are 8" off the ground! The other problem is that the table and patio are on the driver's side. It is very quiet and peaceful here. A lot of the sites only have electric. We had a hard time parking our truck off of the road. We camped at Hoosier/Hardin Ridge Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Canal COE, Grand Rivers, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

This is a large COE campground on Lake Barkley. Site 114 is a pull-thru across the road from the canal and parallel to the road. The curb-side faces the road, which means we have a good view of the canal, but the patio area is right beside the road. There is a large open field behind our site. There was barge traffic all day and night. While that did not bother us it may bother some. Several of the loops had real tight turns and the sites were close together and uneven. We camped at Canal COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Hernando Point - COE, Hernando, Mississippi

Date of Stay: September, 2018 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

This is a nice COE park, easy to get to from I- 55. Decent OTA TV reception out of Memphis. Poor Verizon signal. We paid 10.00 per night using the America the Beautiful pass. Most of the sites are widely spaced with good access for big rigs. Some sites near the lake were very short. Some of the sites had tables, etc. on the opposite side of where we normally open the door. There are a few sites with sewer and they are updating more sites to include sewer. There is a good boat launch. The dumpsters and dump station are a ways from the campground. It would be a long haul to take the portable tank. We camped at Hernando Point - COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Gunter Hill COE, Montgomery, Alabama

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in the Catoma loop which was great. The sites were wide, level and easy to back into. There was a good distance between sites and a lot of visual separation as well. The Catoma loop is the best laid out campground we have seen. The Antioch loop was a different story. The road was narrow, tight turns and very full of pot holes. It would not be a good choice for a big rig. We camped at Gunter Hill COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Bald Ridge Creek COE, Cumming, Georgia

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $11.00
Overall Rating:

This site is right on the lake. It was very easy to back into with our 38-foot 5th wheeler. Many of the sites would no accommodate a large rig, so chose carefully. The park is large and allows for nice walking. There is a boat launch, beach and several playgrounds. The lake is higher than it has been in a while which made the lake trail very muddy. There is no internet and TV reception is spotty. We camped at Bald Ridge Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Stone Mountain State Park, Roaring Gap, North Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2018 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

The park is nice, sites are spacious with a large tent pad/patio, but not much shade. The roads are narrow and two ways. Our site pitched heavily to one side making it hard to level side to side (thank goodness for automatic jacks). It was quiet. We had no cell or internet service. The trails were well marked and well maintained. There is a Dollar General about 2 miles from the park. We camped at Stone Mountain State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Dreher Island State Recreation Area, Prosperity, South Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This park is 30 minutes from the interstate which makes it time consuming to get to because the roads are narrow and winding. It is a beautiful park with lots of trees. Many of the sites are lakeside with great views. The sites on the lake are a lot cooler because of the breeze. Many of the sites are hard to back into. All of those on the inside of the loop are hard to get into, with sharp drop offs. The sites were all paved and fairly level. The sites are narrow with limited area to put chairs or tents.
