Sesquicentennial State Park, Columbia, South Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $21.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a very large State Park located in the metropolitan Columbia area. Interior roads were gravel and a little tight but able to navigate with a 39-foot fifth wheel by going slowly . The sites are extra long but tree roots made leveling a little difficult. The water and 30 amp electric works efficiently as we were heavily shaded. OTA television was easily obtained and there was both Verizon and Sprint service. Dump station located at entrance to Campground. The ranger store had limited hours, but did have firewood available in side. Lots of activities including a lake, water park, and many trails. This park was located about 15 to 30 minutes to Congaree National Park depending on traffic. We would stay here again. We camped at Sesquicentennial State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

We signed up a month in advance for a ranger guided canoe tour of Congaree National Park which was a wonderful way to see the interior. We also did tours of three historic homes through the Columbia preservation Society. There is a good barbecue restaurant directly across the street from the park entrance called Maurice's piggy Park.

James Island County Park, Charleston, South Carolina

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $48.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an extremely large County Park full of all sorts of activities and extra large RV sites. Our site was heavily shaded, private and more than long enough for our 39-foot fifth wheel and Tow vehicle. All utilities and sewer were conveniently placed and worked well. We were able to receive OTA television stations without problem and had minimal, but adequate, Verizon and Sprint service. The laundry facilities were an added bonus for $1.50 a load. This would be a perfect place to come with children as there are so many activities. The huge fence dog park does require paperwork to allow your dog to enter But even has its own private lake swimming area. If you want to go into Charleston proper it will take about 15 minutes depending on traffic. The drive into the park is through residential areas with a lot of trees and a narrow road but we were able to navigate it without problem. While we were there they were setting up for their enormous holiday light show which must be amazing when it is all completely lit. We would stay here again if we were in the Charleston area. We camped at James Island County Park in a Fifth Wheel.

If you have access to AAA they had a wonderful walking tour of the historic section of Charleston in their South Carolina book. The boat tour to Fort Sumter is a must. We took the house tour offered through the Charleston Museum of one of the historic homes on Church Street. George Washington literally slept there.

Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

A spectacularly beautiful State Park located within easy driving distance of Savannah (20 minutes). All of the sites were extra large and level with most being well shaded. Most also included separate parking for your tow vehicle or boat. Electric, sewer, and water were well placed and easy to access. Dump station was convenient and available for those sites without sewer. Very good OTA television reception as well as Verizon and Sprint service. We would stay at this park anytime we were in the area. It is a quiet break from the downtown area. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Fort Pulaski is closed for at least one to two years due to severe damage from Hurricane Irma. Downtown Savannah was beautiful and well worth visiting. Best way to see downtown is to walk. We had a wonderful dinner at Vic's On the River where you can see a pencil map which was drawn on the wall by Union forces detailing the March to the Sea. The cemetery in downtown Savannah had many historic graves from the Revolutionary War. Bonaventure Cemetery was beautiful but much more recent.

River Park RV Park, Valdosta, Georgia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is easy access from the I75. It sits far enough off the interstate so traffic noise is diminished. The pull through sites were spacious though close to neighbors. Verizon and Sprint service were excellent. OTA stations were plentiful. Some sites are open so satellite is possible. There are a plethora of shops and services on the opposite side of the interstate. We would stay here again. We camped at River Park RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Steven C. Foster State Park, Fargo, Georgia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is located in the heart of the Okefenokee Swamp. It is well away from any major towns so cell phone service was non existent except at the ranger station. We were unable to get into the main loops of the campground with our 39 foot fifth wheel due to a tight right turn on to the narrow road surrounded by trees. We were able to comfortably park in a 50 foot pull through with shade that runs along the main Access Road. The 50 amp service and water worked well. There were a few PBS OTA channels plus cable which we did not use. There is a small convenience store at the ranger station but no fuel or real grocery supplies for 20 miles in the town of Fargo. The Rangers were exceptionally nice and there are often a lot of Ranger talks and activities. There are also mosquitoes which seem to have an inordinate taste for campers. We would stay here again. We camped at Steven C. Foster State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Eastbank COE, Bainbridge, Georgia

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $12.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a beautiful COE campground on the banks of Lake Seminole. The back in mostly level gravel sites in Loop A have for the most part beautiful lake views. Electric and water were conveniently placed and worked well. OTA stations were clear and plentiful and Verizon and Sprint had good service. There is no restroom facility in Loop A, however both B&C Loops do have restrooms and showers. In addition to a fire ring and barbecue each site had a fish cleaning station. There is a large fish cleaning area with water at the entrance to the camp. In Loop B there is also a small laundry facility with $1/load washing machine and dryer. We would stay at this Campground anytime we were in the area. We camped at Eastbank COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Blackwater River State Park , Holt, Florida

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

This amazing state park is about 10 miles off Interstate 10 and is well worth the drive. The area is covered with pines and other foliage and the park includes walking trails and a beautiful river. The level sites are extra large gravel base with conveniently-placed utilities including sewer. We were able to park our 39-foot fifth wheel and tow vehicle in the eady to back in spot with without unhooking. Despite significant rain during our stay our site remained dry. We had excellent OTA television reception. Verizon and Sprint were somewhat limited but within the acceptable range. We wish we would have had more time to explore the park and we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Blackwater River State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

St. Bernard State Park, Braithwaite, Louisiana

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $34.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a beautiful State Park which is located about 15 miles outside of central New Orleans and the French Quarter. It is in a beautiful wooded tract of land which offers both open sunny as well as partially shaded very large sites. The trailer pads are asphalt and fairly narrow at a little over eight feet but very level. The utilities are located in the rear and did require an extension hose for water. There were multiple OTA television stations and Verizon and Sprint coverage was good. The picnic tables all appeared to be warped and in somewhat rough condition, but I am sure maintaining them in such high humidity and wet conditions is difficult. Large fire pits and small raised barbecues available on each site. The children's water park was opened on the weekend only and it appears the pool was closed for the season. The gates are locked at night but a code is provided if you return after 9 p.m. The Park police / Rangers patroled frequently during the day. At this time of year there were only four other campers on the entire Loop however the ranger did say that it becomes busy as temperatures cool off. There is no set dog walking area however the park has numerous areas with paved and grass areas which were perfect. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the New Orleans area. We camped at St. Bernard State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Parking in the French Quarter is difficult but at this time of year we found public parking for $20 for 6 hours at a public parking area at the Jax Brewery. We did go into the area at about 8:30 a.m. to ensure parking. The Chalmette Battlefield site was very interesting and well worth a stop. There are multiple gas stations along the main road and one small convenience grocery store.

Betty's RV Park, Abbeville, Louisiana

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

As all of the previous reviews have stated you come to this park for a social experience. The park is the owner’s yard which has been gravelled over. Spaces are back in and very tight. Utility pole, water and sewer are at the back of the site so did require some maneuvering. There is no shade. The owner has a large covered patio area off of the front of her home which is where all of the guests congregate. While we were there we attended the happy hour as well as having a Louisiana shrimp boil which everyone participated in. We had adequate OTA television stations and Verizon service. There are restaurants, groceries, meat markets and fuel readily available. If you are up for meeting lots of new folks this is a good place to go. Just remember you are not coming for a gorgeous campground. We camped at Betty's RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Grand Gulf Military Monument Park, Port Gibson, Mississippi

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $24.00
Overall Rating:      

This is an absolutely wonderful state Park. It is about 8 Miles off Highway 61 but it is well worth the drive. the setting is lush and beautiful with large trees between most of the lower campground spots The concrete pad was level and easy to back into. R 39 foot fifth wheel fit with no problem with the back and extended over the rear site bumper. The utilities were well-placed and worked well. We got multiple OTA television channels and Verizon service was adequate. The lower section of the campground does not have fire pits however these are available in the upper sections. The upper area has less shade and the sites appear to be much less even. The free shower facility and laundry for the lower section is up a flight of stairs. The laundry room was large and had three washers and .dryers. Cost was a dollar for the washing and $0.75 for dryers. There is a small Museum and several restored buildings on site as well as a very old cemetery from the early 1800s. The drive into Vicksburg was about 40 minutes and there is gas and services along Highway 61. We would definitely stay here again. The office staff and the Ranger were full of information and Incredibly friendly. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Leisure Landing RV Park, Hot Springs, Arkansas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $30.00
Overall Rating:      

This was a very nicely maintained campground located on the lake. There was a boat launch but no other direct access to the lake. Sites were somewhat narrow and all were back in with room for tow vehicle parking. There was limited amount of tree coverage but the site we had was shaded at the rear of the trailer. Utilities were well placed and easy to use. We had good OTA television coverage and Verizon service. The owner / manager was extremely friendly and helpful. There is propane for sale on the site. The fenced dog yard was clean and neat and shade covered as well as lit at night.

It is an approximate 15 minute drive into the historic part of Hot Springs and the National Park. A grocery store and fuel station was available within a five minute drive. It served as a nice base for exploring the region. We camped at Leisure Landing RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Onapa RV Park and Campground, Checotah, Oklahoma

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

Rural campground is about 3 miles from Interstate 40 with good access. Our site was mostly level and dirt which could have been quite messy if it had been windy. Because there were no shade trees it was quite warm in the late afternoon. The utilities were easy to use and worked well with the tower set mid rig. We did not use the WiFi as we had good Verizon service. There were 15 OTA stations with good reception. The owners have a very large, well-maintained, grass area at the front of the property which allows for easy dog walking. In addition there is a small dirt road off the back of the park which provided a nice wooded walk. There are lots of activities for children; playground set, tetherball, basketball hoops, horseshoes, above ground pool and a putting green. For the price this was a very convenient and well-maintained overnite stop. We would stay here again. We camped at Onapa RV Park and Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Overnite RV Park, Amarillo, Texas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:      

Very easy on-and-off overnite park off the interstate. Very long gravel pull through. Our site had a large fenced dog pen and a covered picnic table. Sites with fairly well-maintained grass areas. Utilities well placed and easy to use. No cable or Wifi but had excellent OTA stations and Verizon service. We asked for a site with the fenced dog pen and it also included a gazebo type covered picnic table. In addition there is a fairly large off-leash dog area at the rear of the park. While we did not use the restrooms they were at the front of the park near the office so a site closer to the office for those meeting the restrooms might be more convenient if needed. The pool was empty however I am unsure whether it was for cleaning or for the end of the season. In the morning there was some street noise from the access road to the freeway but it did not bother us during the night. We would certainly stay here again if passing through the area. We camped at Overnite RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Bar S RV Park, Milan, New Mexico

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:      

We chose this park for a overnight stay only as it had convenient access from the I-40 and two large travel centers for fuel. The site was gravel and long enough for our 39 foot fifth wheel and tow vehicle without unhooking which was desired. Freeway noise was minimal but the trains ran every 20 minutes all night long! The utilities were well-placed and easy-to-use. We were charged an extra $2 a night in order to use 50 amp service. We used OTA television stations and did not hook up to the cable or use the WiFi. Verizon service was excellent. The designated dog walk area turned out to be the back rear corner of the park which was actually parking for RVs as towers were present. No one had picked up dog waste for a long time as it literally was a couple of inches deep. We ended up walking the dogs on the access road in front of the park. Due to the train noise we probably would not stay here again. Know what else I should put they charge $2 extra. We camped at Bar S RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Sommerville Almond Tree RV Park, Coalinga, California

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

We have stayed at this park several times over the course of the years as we returned to the Los Angeles area. It is one of the few parks that is within 300 miles of Metropolitan Los Angeles. Possibly due to the continued drought most of the large eucalyptus trees and any of the plants/grass between the sites at the rear of the park have died and all that is left is dirt, weeds and gopher holes. The large almond orchard which used to be directly behind this park has been cut down and is a large dirt field. The sites were long enough for our 39 ft fifth wheel and tow vehicle and there was a layer of large gravel on the mostly level hard packed dirt. The gravel itself is uneven which on some sites could be a problem for traction. The 50 amp service and water were in an older tower but were adequate. OTA stations were easily picked up and both Verizon and AT&T worked well. There are two service stations and a fast food establishment immediately adjacent to the park. The park is easily accessed from the interstate and the interior roads were easy to navigate. Close to the managers home and the park entrance they do have a green area which worked for a quick trip outside for the dogs. The manager's friendly dog was off leash during the during the early morning while we prepared to leave. This is an extremely hot, agricultural area with very little around it. Despite its almost perfect location and easy Interstate access we will not be staying here again until the park is better maintained. Currently, the cost is not commensurate with the condition of the park and its sites. We camped at Sommerville Almond Tree RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
