Outlanders River Camp, Luray, Virginia

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

We really enjoyed our stay here. It's very close to Luray Caverns, and 30 minutes from the entrance gate to Shenandoah National Park. Just a few miles away is a Walmart, supermarket, and a few restaurants and stores in Luray. The RV sites are decently spaced, with picnic table and fire pit. There are some nice tent platforms in the woods with a lot of privacy, and some rows of tent sites in the open in the main campground area. Several grassy "trails" lead around the property, great for dog walks, and there's quite a bit of river access which our dog loved for swims. We were there pre-season so the park was mostly empty and the rates were cheaper ($44/night including tax). The only downside for us was connectivity: Verizon had a pretty good signal but data was often slower than we'd like, while AT&T had only one bar of signal and varied between slow and unusable. Using our cell booster made little difference with data speeds. We'd definitely return. We camped at Outlanders River Camp in a Motorhome.

Dumplin Valley RV, Kodak, Tennessee

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

This is a large field with hookups on a farm. That means no trees or privacy, and sites are just average in size. Our site was pretty level but some sites looked less so. The views are nice and it certainly has a different feel from most RV Parks. The owners were very friendly and check-in was easy. As we only stayed overnight we don't have much else to report. We'd gladly stay again as an overnight stop... not sure if we'd stay longer as it seems to be mainly a "place to park", and not really a "destination" campground (no picnic tables, fire pits, or any other amenities). AT&T and Verizon service both worked, though I didn't really test performance of either. We camped at Dumplin Valley RV in a Motorhome.

Trace State Park, Belden, Mississippi

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Our impression of this park doesn't seem to match everyone else's, but perhaps it's because it was the 10th state park in a row we visited, and the others were much nicer in our opinion. The road to the campground, and some of the roads inside the campground, are in horrible condition, with broken pavement, huge potholes, and poorly patched areas. The person who checked us in at the entrance was surprisingly unhelpful, didn't give us any information about the park or even instructions on how to get to the campground and our site. We stayed in the new Warrior campground which had large, level concrete sites and full hookups, which was great for the price. Unfortunately both AT&T and Verizon were extremely slow, with AT&T usually not working at all. During the week it was like a ghost town... there were a bunch of RVs in the campground, but we never saw any people, and on the weekend, locals camp here and bring their ATVs to ride around all the trails. It's just a different state park campground experience than we're used to. We walked the trails with our dog during the week until some rain turned them all to mud, and we were advised not to use the trails on the weekend due to the ATVs. It's a good 15-20 minute drive to get to stores or restaurants. Perhaps under different conditions we'd have enjoyed the park more, but next time in the area we'll try a different location. We camped at Trace State Park in a Motorhome.

Timberlake Campground, Brandon, Mississippi

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in the brand new section closer to the road, farther from the water. Sites were concrete and a nice size, but unlevel enough that we needed to use some blocks under our motorhome's rear tires and jacks before we could get level. This was a very nice park, especially considering the price ($25) for full hookups in a public park. The park looks like it's been gradually expanded over time, with some sections looking very old with broken concrete, others old but in good condition, and some new. The older sections are heavily wooded, the new section is mostly open. The campground does allow long-term stays, but it's surprising to see so many long-term rigs in a public park, some which look like they haven't been moved in 5-10 years. There's no WiFi, but both Verizon and AT&T worked fine. We walked across the street to the Kroger supermarket which was convenient, and there are plenty of other stores and restaurants a short drive away. The campground is large enough for good dog walks, but there's also another public park next door which we often walked to that has a popular fenced dog park and lake access. We will definitely return when passing through the area again. We camped at Timberlake Campground in a Motorhome.

River View RV Park & Resort, Vidalia, Louisiana

Date of Stay: April, 2018 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

The Mississippi River was above flood stage during our visit, so much of the campground was underwater. That said, the rest of the campground was quite nice and the location was very convenient for visiting Natchez MS. We had a concrete pad, but every other site was grass... it looks like the concrete sites were probably the originals, and were nice and wide, but more sites were later created in between each site to fit more people in. The sites are now an average size for a commercial RV park, but definitely weren't spacious. There's a great paved walking path along the river that we used for daily dog walks, as well as walking along the top of the levee. There's also a pool, hot tub, and playground. Our AT&T and Verizon both worked fine, but the campground WiFi was too slow to be useful. We would happily return. We camped at River View RV Park & Resort in a Motorhome.

Bayou Segnette State Park, Westwego, Louisiana

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

This turned out to be a nice state park campground and a good place for our home base while visiting New Orleans. It is a 30 minute drive to the French Quarter, but it was a pretty easy drive except for the last mile or so in New Orleans. You can take the ferry as well to save on some parking costs and traffic. The campground is pretty big, and the sites (all back-ins) are quite large. Our site was fantastic, with lots of space and privacy. Strangely, some of the other sites we saw had their camping space on the wrong side of the RV. There are enough roads and sidewalks that we were able to do some long walks with our dog, but there aren't really any trails. Our Verizon hotspot worked quite well, but our AT&T phones usually had 1-2 bars of 4G (no LTE) and often had no service at all. The campground WiFi was too slow to be useful. Since there's no sewer, we used the campground showers. The water was hot but the bath houses were cold inside. Two of the three men's showers in the closest bath house had no temperature control and the water was far too hot to shower in. The entrance/pay booth for the campground is elevated (presumably in case of flooding) and the ramp to check in there was so steep that our tow bar between our motorhome and car dragged and scraped on our way up and down. There's no way to avoid that ramp. There are plenty of stores nearby but they all seemed pretty run down, and it was hard to find any restaurants in the area that weren't a big national chain. Despite all these nitpicks, this is a great looking, clean campground with huge sites and pretty good convenience to New Orleans. We'll probably stay here again if we visit the area in the future. We camped at Bayou Segnette State Park in a Motorhome.

Meaher State Park, Spanish Fort, Alabama

Date of Stay: March, 2018 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

As a place to stay when visiting the area, this state park worked out very well. Full hookups for $26/night with decent sized, level, paved sites, easy access to I-10, and just a couple miles from lots of stores. As a destination of its own, it was pretty disappointing. The state park is tiny -- it's just the campground and a boat launch. There are no trails or things to do or see. Across from the campground is a row of RVs in storage, and the short road to the maintenance building is lined with old boats and RVs in disrepair. Apart from walking the campground loop, there was no place to walk our dog since the park was so small. We found another local park across the highway which has slightly better walking opportunities, but crossing US-98 on foot turned out to be pretty risky (no traffic light or crossing at the campground entrance), and that park (including trails) closed at 5pm daily. While outside, there was some constant traffic noise from nearby I-10, but it wasn't audible when inside. They did warn us about the ant problem, and we did spot a few inside the motorhome, but our diatomaceous earth did a good job protecting us from them. The campground gate is locked at night, and there's no gate code -- you have to call the camp host to let you in. Verizon worked well, AT&T was slower but still usable. Reservations must be made by phone. Compared to most commercial RV parks, Meaher State Park was cheaper and with larger sites, but compared to the dozens of other state parks we've stayed in across the country, it was lacking. Now that we know what to expect, we'd return for a very short stay either when passing through or visiting Mobile, but we wouldn't plan an extended stay. We camped at Meaher State Park in a Motorhome.

Topsail Hill State Preserve, Santa Rosa Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

We had a fantastic time at Topsail Hill, partly because we happened to cross paths with several RVing friends there (and made some new ones), but also because it's a great campground. Our site was excellent, but as we walked through the park we found that the quality of sites really varies a lot. Our site was huge, private, and level, but there were plenty of sites that I would barely consider to be acceptable, being right next to your neighbor with no privacy and a badly broken and un-level pad. Verizon and AT&T both worked well, and there's campground WiFi at the camp store but we found it to be pretty slow. Like every FL state park we've stayed in, they accepted mail and other deliveries for us which was great. There are some nice trails through the park so we never ran out of places to walk our dog. We did get two straight days of rain shortly after arriving, and many trails and half our site were underwater for a week afterwards. They manage mosquitos aggressively and we rarely encountered them, but we did find one tick on our dog after a walk. The park is close to Walmart but a little further from other stores in town, and traffic on US-98 is awful all day long... I can't imagine what it's like in the summer! It's a short walk to the beach (or take the hourly tram) but dogs aren't allowed on the beach. There's a pool, shuffleboard, and other amenities though we didn't take advantage. Overall this is an extremely nice and well-run park, and we're looking forward to returning in the future. We camped at Topsail Hill State Preserve in a Motorhome.

Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park, White Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2018 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This was a nice campground, with some very large sites. Our pull through fit our 42' motorhome and tow car, and we could have parked another motorhome in the site as well. The park is grassy and heavily wooded and is attractive overall. It did rain a lot while we were there and the roads were pretty flooded for a day but did dry up quickly. AT&T and Verizon cell service was available, but speeds varied from very good to just ok. We didn't have full hookups but the bath house was clean and showers were hot. The dump station was easy to access on the way out. The free museum was fun to visit for a couple hours, but most of the "folk" craft shops were unoccupied, probably due to being off season. And of course the infamous tubular bells are still under repair. There's not much in the nearby town, but it doesn't take too long to drive to Lake City for supplies you can't get locally. Overall we enjoyed our stay, but didn't find much to do in the local area (though we also didn't look too hard). We'd definitely return if we found ourselves needing a campground in the area, but probably wouldn't seek it out as a destination other than as a place to relax and unwind for a while. We camped at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park in a Motorhome.

Rainbow Springs State Park, Dunnellon, Florida

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

This is a pretty nice campground, with decently spaced level sites. Some sites (like ours) were mostly open with no trees or privacy, while some others were heavily wooded and you can't see your neighbor. If you're visiting for tubing down the river you'll find this a great place to stay. However we found the campground to be a bit far from stores and restaurants. We also usually had no AT&T signal, and Verizon had 1-2 bars and was very slow in the evenings. There are several trails around the campground that were good for dog walks, but our dog did step on several stickers/goatheads. We had full hookups which was nice, so we didn't check out the showers. We were able to receive mail and packages during our stay - this seems to be common at FL state parks which we very much appreciate. Given the poor cell signal and distance from stores, we probably won't return, but if those drawbacks don't bother you, it's still a nice place to stay. We camped at Rainbow Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Silver Springs State Park (formerly Silver River State Park), Ocala, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

We loved Silver Spring State Park from the moment we arrived. Sites are spacious with pretty good privacy, the entire campground is filled with towering trees, and strangely enough, the campground had a wonderful oak/pine smell which we weren't expecting in Florida. We had no sewer at our site, but the bath house had very nice and extremely hot showers. Roads were wide and paved and we had no trouble with our 42' motorhome. There were some nice trails to walk our dog on. A mile or two away was the main park entrance where we rented a kayak and paddled the river looking at alligators, turtles, birds, and fish. Just past the main park entrance is a great 20-hole disc golf course (bring your own discs). Verizon and AT&T both worked well. We were able to receive mail and packages during our stay. All the staff we interacted with were very friendly and helpful. Restaurants and shopping are a short drive away, and we found a giant fenced dog park about 10-15 minutes away. We were sad to leave and wished we had booked two weeks instead of one! We're looking forward to returning in the future. We camped at Silver Springs State Park (formerly Silver River State Park) in a Motorhome.

Hillsborough River State Park, Thonotosassa, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2018 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

Entering this heavily wooded state park feels like you've gone back in time. The park itself is quite large, and after entering it takes a while to get to the campground. The park and campground roads are narrow heavily wooded and we brushed quite a few low branches with our motorhome. Inside the campground there are some tight turns that were tough but doable in our 42' motorhome. The single dump station was also a tight squeeze for us with several sharp turns. I'm sure this is all simply because the park is older and RVs have been getting bigger. Our site #10 was one where you pull off to the right side of the road. The site was sloped steeply down away from the road though so we needed lots of blocks under our passenger side tires. The nice thing was that we had no other RVs visible from our camping area, while most of the sites in the campground were packed close together with no privacy. The park is a bit far from "civilization", so if that's what you're going for, it's perfect. If you want to go visit restaurants, stores, etc., it's a decent drive. Showers were dated but functional... though sometimes the water never got hot. Our Verizon worked quite well, but AT&T had one bar, was usable but very slow, and a couple calls got dropped. There are plenty of trails for walking our dog, but since one of the two bridges across the river is closed due to damage, all our walks were "out and back" style, as we couldn't do a loop. We loved the natural feel of the park, but not sure if we'll return given the challenges getting through in a big rig and being so far from town. We camped at Hillsborough River State Park in a Motorhome.

Waters Edge RV Resort (55+ park), Punta Gorda, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

We just stayed one night, but found the RV resort to be nice. Most of the park is filled with owned sites that are a mix of park models/trailers and RVs, but there's room for short-term visitors like us too. The permanent sites are generally nicely kept up with landscaping, decorations, etc. The north area of the park was very crowded/cramped, with narrow roads, small sites, and lots of golf carts driving around. Our grass site in the "S" section (east side) was much nicer, and even though it had no sewer, we greatly preferred that location (except for having to drive through the north section to get there) as it felt much more spacious. Since our site was grass, when we put down own motorhome's leveling jacks, they sunk right into the ground instead of lifting us. Fortunately we had some wood blocks we could put under them for support. Strangely, the 50 amp pedestal was at the extreme front of the back-in site, while the water hookup was 40' back into the site. Although the site was 60+ feet long, we had to park our rig right up against the road for our power cord to reach the pedestal. Staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, a pleasure to work with. Dogs aren't supposed to be walked on any site but your own, however there's a very large grassy area on the east end of the park that's fine for walks, and a surprisingly large fenced dog park. Cell service was good, and although it's near the airport, we didn't notice much noise. We'd stay here again for a longer stay when visiting family in the area. We camped at Waters Edge RV Resort (55+ park) in a Motorhome.

Jonathan Dickinson State Park, Hobe Sound, Florida

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

This is a very nice state park campground. We stayed in the full hookup Pine Grove loop. The sites were a little close together compared to most other state parks we've stayed at, but we never felt crowded, and it's certainly much better spacing than most commercial RV Parks. There are no mature trees, so there's little privacy within the campground. Because of the way the loops are curved, there are some sites (all are back-ins) with extremely long pads (100'), and others that are very short and close to the road. We found some good places to walk the dog near the campground, and there are more trails at the other end of the park, 4 miles away. Cell service was good, and it was a short drive to stores and restaurants in either Jupiter (south) or Hobe Sound (north). If you're staying a while, mail and packages can be received at the campground office. Given the low price for full hookups, this is a great value and someplace we'll look at returning to in the future. We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Motorhome.

Jacksonville North / St. Marys KOA, Kingsland, Georgia

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $47.00
Overall Rating:

We only stayed overnight so our review is brief. This KOA has a very rustic feel, which we like. There are LOTS of trees, which breaks up the row-after-row of RV feel quite a bit, and the sites are a bit more spacious than normal for a KOA. However, the roads are poor condition, and sites are a mix of overgrown gravel and broken-up concrete. Roads were tight to navigate in a few places (following our escort golf cart we had to make a near U-turn to get into our row). There were a fair number of permanent/long-term residents. We had a little interstate noise but it wasn't bad. There was a nice-sized dog park that we used, and other amenities (pool, playground, etc.) that we didn't use. Wifi is provided by Tengo so we didn't even try, but our Verizon/AT&T worked fine. The price seems a bit high, but that seems to be the case in this location. We'll stay here again for an overnight. We camped at Jacksonville North / St. Marys KOA in a Motorhome.
