This is our second stay at Bella Terra, a lovely resort convenient to the beach area of Alabama and Florida. We drive a 45F MH and found access to and through the park very easy. Although they have pull-through sites, I think one would have to remove a tow care in order to fit. Internal roads are paved and all sites are concrete. The roads are wide and getting into and out of the sites was very easy. The office staff are very friendly and have great service practices. They call to confirm your reservation and call the day of your arrival to verify the time and to be sure you are all set with directions. Most sites are developed and really lovely, the club house is very nice with a great workout room. Utilities are well placed and all work well. Wifi was very good while we were there. We will definitely return next year.

This is our second stay at Lake City Campground. It is a convenient one day drive from southern Florida and a great stop-over spot. It is conveniently located to I-10 and even though it required a bit of backtracking for us it was worth the few extra miles. The office staff are very friendly and responsive and although their business hours are limited, they will return your call promptly and are very polite and helpful when reached in person. It is away from the interstate and very quiet. We drive a 45F MH with a tow and found Lake City easy enough to navigate. The internal roads are paved and the appeal for us is their very long pull-throughs that are also paved. It is very hard to find campgrounds with good big rig access that are not sand or grass sites. The entrance into the pull-through is grass but although it had been rainy, the grass was firm enough so that it did not cause an issue. Water and electric are at the middle of the site and the sewer is to the back which could be a problem for some. Power is good, water pressure is low, WiFi was good enough for our purposes. The pool looked very clean and there is a nice playground for kids. We did not use the rest rooms or laundry. There are a few sites with trailers that look permanent and that are a bit disheveled but that did not outweight the pros of this location. This would not be a destination campground for us but we will stay here again if traveling nearby and need an overnight stay.

We stayed at RiverBend from December through April. We arrived as renters and bought a lot before we left. The resort is away from the Fort Myers traffic and congestion but close enough to enjoy restaurants and the theater. We drive a 45F MH and access to the resort is east as is navigating around the resort and into the sites as the roads and sites are wide. As others have noted, the landscaping and grounds are lovely and the club houses are first rate. Utilities are good and the resort pays close attention to the quality of drinking water and waste water collection and processing. There is lots to do and if one is bored, it's their own fault. We found the people within the resort to be extremely friendly which prompted us to join the owner community. Renters and owners alike join in activities and most volunteer for one of the many "jobs" within the resort. Makes for a good sense of community. We decided we wanted a more permanent place within the resort. We will be returning here hopefully, for many more fun winters.

The park is in a more urban setting but access into the park from the highway was easy. We drive a 45F MH and navigated into and around the park easily. The roads are paved and sites are concrete. We did have a bit of trouble backing into our assigned site - took a couple of passes, but getting out in the morning was easy. The utilities were well placed, water pressure and power were good. We did not use the amenities so I cannot comment on them. I did not feel the park was a good value given the price for one night. We had an old, unpainted picnic table on our site with no landscaping. The back-in sites are a bit tight together and it felt crowded. If we were going to come back and stay longer in a different site, I expect it is a lovely place. We would not return however, for just an overnight.

Stayed one night while traveling to southern Florida. Access to and from I-75 good but road remains under construction making the short trip a bit of a challenge. The park has fairly wide paved roads throughout although the sites are a bit narrow. We drive a 44' MH with tow and were not able to keep the car attached and fit onto the pad. Grass between sites - a bit narrow but enough so that you don't feel absolutely on top of your neighbor. Sites are level. Office staff delightful and helpful. Online reservation process worked well. We did not use rest rooms or laundry so cannot comment on that. Park was very clean and well maintained. Utilities good, water pressure good, and Wifi worked well. Not certain we would stay here again as the sites are just a tad small for our size with the car on but the resort was very nice for MH or rigs of smaller size.

We initially planned to stay one night at Grand Lake but ended up staying almost one week due to issues with our coach. The residents of the park are fabulous - we broke down right at the registration office when it was closed and the residents of the resort were really great in helping us to get emergency assistance and settled into the park. Grand Lake is a Sun RV Resort and the management practices of Sun as well as those of Grand Lake need improvement. Although we had registered for our stay, there was no information at the office for us or several other campers who came in behind us. Calls to the "manager on call" went unanswered. When the office is open, staff are helpful. The Resort is easy off I-75 with paved internal roads and concrete pads in the upper section of the resort. Roads and sites are narrow but we were able to navigate and level easily with our 44' MH. Although we did not tow our car through the resort, there were many campers who went through with the car attached. The lower section of the resort is grass and relatively level. We stayed in this section for 4 days of the 7 we were there. Utilities and water pressure good, internet good. We would stay here again.

Bella Terra is easy access from I-10 using the Baldwin Expressway and Foley Beach Expressway. Internal roads are paved with large concrete sites. We drive a 44' MH with a tow which we removed when arriving at the resort. We had no difficulty navigating into the site or around the park. The utilities are well placed along the side of the site. Electric and water pressure is good. We stayed in a lakefront site that was nicely landscaped and included a screened gazebo. The resort is lovely, clean and well maintained. The staff of the resort have the best customer service practices that we have ever encountered. They called us several times prior to our arrival to confirm our reservation, check on our arrival time, and just to make sure we were all set. When inside the park, they alerted us right away for a couple of packages that arrived. They were extremely friendly and made us feel welcome. The guests were the same way, very friendly and we really enjoyed the week that we spent there. Workout room is good, club house is nice and we used the hot tub as well. Wifi is good for basic internet activity. We hope to return next year as we had such a great time during our stay.

Campground is easy access from I-185. Internal roads are paved and campsites in the Azalea section are concrete. We drive a 44' MH with a tow and were able to easily navigate the park with the tow. Staff were very friendly and we got an escort to our site. Most sites in this area look level with good hook-ups, our site was level and the coach auto-leveled with no difficulty. The grounds are nicely maintained and the campground is clean. We did not use the CG rest room or laundry so cannot comment on that. Quiet hours begin at 10P and there was loud music up until that time on the Saturday we were there. Overall, nice place and we would stop here again.

We spent two weeks at Mountain Falls at the end of the foliage and tourist season so there were very few motorhomes in the park while we were there. The park itself is paved throughout with concrete pads which are level. Almost every site has landscaping or development of some sort. Our lot (#4) was near the entrance to the park and was nicely designed with delightful sitting areas and lighting. Is was close to Rt. 64 so there is a bit of traffic noise but nothing that was bothersome. The park itself is cleaned and nicely maintained. The views from The Ridge at the top of the resort are stunning although the sites for rent in this section are quite stark, mostly just a level concrete pad. We drive a 43' MH and tow a car making the drive into the resort from the East quite interesting. The road is narrow and curvy for the last 5 or six miles so one must go slow and carefully. If we were returning, we might take off the car prior to this last section of the road. As previously noted there is not a lot to do locally without a 30 - 60 minutes drive but it suited us just fine, we appreciated the quiet and the solitude. The club house is very nice and we used the exercise room several times. Wifi worked pretty well from our location, satellite reception was good. We would stay here again.

Lovely park nestled on the shores of the French Broad River. We drive a 43' MH with a tow and had no difficulty getting into the park and our site. Manager waited on us upon arrival and he was friendly and helpful. Our site was directly on the river which created a lovely view from the front of the coach. The internal roads are paved while the sites are concrete and separated by a hedge row on the sides. There is grass to the front of the coach for the row next to the river. There is a doggy rest stop area and the open field next to the office made for a very nice walk with the dog. The park is very clean and peaceful given it sits quite close to the very busy Rt. 66. We did not use the rest room or laundry facilities. Wifi worked fairly well and we got good satellite reception. We would stay here again.

As noted by the previous reviewer, the final road getting to the park is narrow and one must use caution at this point. Inside the park the roads and sites are hard packed stone and most look level. We drive a 43' MH with a tow and had no difficulty getting into the park and navigating around the park. The park hostess was very polite and friendly, taking us to our assigned site. Whispering Hills has recently added 9 long pull through sites which we were able to use. They were easy to get into and allowed for the tow to stay on. Prior to the week of our stay, they had only pull smaller rigs into that location to assure the sites were firm and could handle the bigger motorhomes. They provided plywood squares for our pods to assure the sites would not get damaged by the big rigs before the gravel had thoroughly settled. It seemed firm under our rig and the new sites have a nice grass area between sites. Most sites have a grass area between sites but there is one pull through section of the park that is gravel only. We did not use the rest room facilities or the Wifi. We got an acceptable Verizon hot spot signal on our phone and the satellite worked well in this location. Nice spot for an overnight or even a couple of days. Campground very clean and well maintained. We would stay here again.

Access to the campground was good via Rt. 241/93 off US 30. Internal park roads are paved and sites are narrow crushed stone with lovely wide areas of grass between sites. We drive a 44'MH with tow and we were able to maneuver into our site (#53) without removing the car. We were also able to exit from this site with the car attached. This section of the campground is mostly full hookup pull-thru's and it might be difficult to exit with a tow attached if one were closer to the road. The sites in this area are level with a picnic table and fire ring included on the site. The older section of the park is among old tall trees and looks lovely, although some sites appear to have a slope from back to front. The campground is peaceful and would be full of activities for families and kids during open season. We were there the last weekend they were open so the water aspects of the park were closed. The back open tent area is a lovely walk with the dog. We used the Wifi successfully without issue and our satellite worked great. We did not try the cable or restroom facilities. We would return the Baylor Beach Park if going back through this area.

As noted by other reviewers, very easy access from I-80. Internal roads and sites are gravel with grass between sites. We drive a 44' MH and tow a car and were able to get into our site (#27) without taking the car off as the middle level of pull through sites are over 100 ft long. Sites share power and water utilities and have separate sewer hookup making one of your neighbors close on the utilities side and you share the picnic table area with your neighbor on the other side. This would be a bit close for me if someone was on the picnic table side but there was not another camper in that site while we were there. Sites in this area are level. The grounds are nice with lovely walking trails around the edges and as noted, the owners are very helpful and friendly. Rest rooms are dated but clean, we did not use the shower facilities. The Wifi did not work well for us while we were there and we did not use the cable. Our hotspot worked well for internet, satellite worked great, and we got great HD channels with our air antenna. We would stay here again.

This is a lovely campground easily accessed from I-88. Campground roads and sites are hard gravel with grass between sites. We drive a 44' motorhome and tow our car and easily maneuvered into site #4 which is in a small area in the front of the campground. The sites appear level but there was a slant to our site making it difficult to auto level the coach. We ended up not using the leveling pods and were very comfortable in our coach which felt level to us. The grounds are beautiful and the foliage was really spectacular during our stay. The campground is quiet and peaceful even though it is not that far off the highway. We did not use the restrooms or laundry rooms so cannot comment on those aspects. The wifi was a bit sluggish but I was able to do what I wanted on the computer. Verizon cell signal was good. This is our second visit to this campground and we would return again.

As described by others, the park is lovely with many different camping areas and what looks like a great experience for families. Park is easy access off and on I90. Internal roads are paved and narrow and sites are paved and narrow. We drive a 44ft MH towing a car and had hoped to park overnight without taking the car off. The layout of the park however made it impossible to get into our assigned site (405) and have the MH and car correctly placed so we ended up taking the car off. Our site had a slope front to back requiring we reposition several times before getting to a spot where we could level the coach. Utilities are properly located for easy access. Rest rooms and showers were very clean and well lit, we did not use wifi as our cell phone hotspot worked very well. There is not a specific dog walk area but plenty of walking areas through the park to exercise the dog and get some lovely fresh air. There was a bit of background train noise but nothing that really bothered the peacefulness. The exit road to the campground is very narrow and tree-lined which looked lovely but seemed a bit tight for our rig. We ended up slipping out the entrance road as we left early morning and there was no traffic.
