The positives - great location on the edge of the battlefield and just down the road from the visitor center. Horse stables if you need them. The negatives: High cost for mediocre campgound - $50 Their math 6x$55=$348 Web site says all taxes included but they forgot the Gettysburg tax and so did the clerk that checked me in. Assigned to a occupied site. Overgrown gravel sites and hard to tell where the site begins and ends. Roads are loose gravel and dusty. Road to the 400 section is one lane road but 2-way traffic. Site is narrow and drops off drastically when you step out the door. You have to block the entrance during check-in. It's best to enter from the Rt. 134 (Taneytown Road) exit from US 15 rather then drag your RV through downtown Gettysburg. Wi-Fi: horrible. Management knows it's an issue but they haven't fixed it. There is even a sign in the laundry room saying so. If you know it's a problem why not try to fix it? Just because the CG is also a stable, it doesn't have to look like a rundown farm.

This is the third RVC outdoors campground I have stayed at and it was the worst one! This campground is ideal for a weekend at Raystown Lake but not for long term (a week or more) or overnight due to it's location. Let's start with the positive. Beautiful views of the lake and mountains. Very quiet at night. Little light pollution at night so it's a great place to view the stars. There are NO sites with a sewer hook-up. You have to search their web page to uncover this fact. The dump station is well marked on the way into the campground but not on the way out. I didn't see a level site in the CG. Most sites are gravel, but there are some that are concrete or asphalt. Trash pick-up times are not on handouts. One night there was no hot water in the shower. Cable is fuzzy. Wi-fi worked great but the park was not busy while I was there. AT&T cell phone coverage was excellent.

This is a former KOA and still shows up on some GPS's as a KOA. The new owners have installed new utilities throughout the park. The roads and sites are gravel. There is a problem of drainage on some of the sites. I was there for a week and the site beside never dried up. The buildings onsite are in great shape. They have 2 pools and a hot tub (not open). The CG is close to I95 but traffic noise is not that noticeable. The Wi-Fi worked very well, but the park wasn't that busy. A previous comment stated that lighting wasn't a problem, but I disagree. There are street lights throughout the park in addition each site has a light on the electrical box. Unless you have light blocking window shades you will get a lot of light at night. This is a great CG to stop at overnight if traveling I95.

OMG this campground is huge! it is right on the beach and depending on what you want to pay you can be close to the beach. All utilities worked fine. Wi-Fi slowed down occasionally but no real issue. Nice touch for cable was that the coaxial was already attached and all you had to do was unroll it and attach it to your rig. Laundry was the size of a laundromat but it is costly ($2.50 to wash, $0.25 for 8 minutes to dry).

Excellent county park. There are a lot of activities in the park and it does get busy but the park closes at sunset. Everything worked fine except the Wi-fi was slow at times.

Excellent state park on the edge of Savannah. There are only 18 full hookups and they are costly. The rest of the sites are water and electric only. There is no Wi-Fi at the sites but there is a hot spot at the office. Very inconvenient.

This is a great county run park! Everything worked great. After 8pm campers have the entire park to themselves. The entrance to the park is locked at 8, but is the code is provided for after hours entry. Good luck on getting a satellite signal due to the forest. The roads are crushed rock and are in need of leveling.

Pellicer Creek Campground is a small CG south of St. Augustine. Even though it is close to I-95 there is little noise from the highway I don't normally use the restroom and showers at a CG so the fact that Pellicer Creek doesn't have them was fine by me. This may be an issue for some people. WiFi worked fine but the owner does block some sites. They have DirecTV has their cable provider and a box is provided by the CG.

Lake Waldena is a large park on the far outskirts of town. The CG is a trailer park and RV park with more permanent trailers than RV sites. The trailer park is mainly occupied by snowbirds. My site was along the main road into the park, therefore there was a lot of traffic. Sites 82 to 104 are on the main road. Due to the heavy rain the previous week the ground was soaked and I had to wash all the levelers and chocks due to the mud encased in them when I was prepping to leave. Pros - all utilities worked fine. Wi-fi was adequate. Cable TV was all analog. Cons - road noise from FL 40. Office is closed on Sundays. I have to assume that mosquitos are a problem most of the year due the swampy area behind the sites (the Nature Preserve on their map). I would stay here again in a pinch.

Paid premium price for a site next to the water - big mistake. Sewer hook-up was rather high and I had to use a board and levelers to get my sewage to drain. Winds coming off of Mobile Bay tend to blow right into the site. This is the furthest site from the office and the main WiFi. They have a repeater but it did not function well. While I was there the internet did go down due to a problem with the phone line but was fixed on the last day I was there and it worked fine except for the repeater problem. Two-thirds of the sites are used by long term snowbirds. These are all on the upper end of the park away from the bay. The park is getting rundown and needs tended to. The laundry was not cleaned the entire week I was there. The machines are old and rusty on the outside. There is nothing close to the park so plan to drive a bit into Gulf Shores for anything except what you can get at the store at the gas station a little more then a mile down the road. The staff is friendly.

A very nice park. Transients are put in the area closest to the road, which is very busy. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Everything worked fine, except the Wi-Fi was slow. If you plan to use satellite the trees may get in the way if you are next to the fence.

The campground is on an actual plantation. There are really 2 distinct areas on the property. One has concrete pads and patios and the other is gravel with a concrete patios. There is also a different rate for each area. I stayed in a site on the gravel area (sites 1-28 and 39 - 52. During my time here there was a lot of rain. Drainage was poor with a lot of pooling of water (this is typical in the area but shouldn't be within a park). Most campers in this area are work campers that are here long term working construction at a refinery. Many of the trailers have seen better days. The owner allows these long-termers to personalize their sites. Some have done a nice job and some haven't. The roads are gravel and when they are dry it is very dusty when the speed limit is exceeded, especially by those living in the very back section. Positives - very nice location. roomy sites. Excellent wi-fi (I was in the back and far away from a repeater but maintained a good signal). The Poche Post! The Poche Post is prepared by the owner and provides information for locals and visitors. The clubhouse where there is a kitchen, lounge and the showers and restrooms. Negatives - the dust. Standing water after the rains (some sites are really flooded during a good soaking). Laundry room - machines are inexpensive ($1.50 to wash and $1.00 to dry) but they are heavily used and need replacing. Also, it is not centrally located near the clubhouse where one would expect to find it. LA Route 44 follows the river and there are quite a few turns that MUST be taken at the recommended speed. A good landmark is the set of blinking yellow lights for a pedestrian crossing. The entrance to the park is AT the blinking light when coming north and shortly after the one when coming south. Speed limit on the road is 55 so be aware of anyone behind you before you make your sharp turn into the plantation. The office is at the very back of the park and you get a good tour of the campgrounds on your drive. The office is rarely occupied so have your cell phone ready to call the manager. Best site is the one beside the garage of the plantation house. I don't think it is used by anyone staying longer then a few days.

I am not going to repeat what other reviews have already stated. This is a well laid out park with concrete driveways and pads. Everything worked fine, including Wi-fi. Cable is provided but all channels are analog. You can pick up stations with an antenna. Negatives - Noise - My site was next to the pond and it has a fountain in the middle of the pond. You hear the fountain all the time. Less then a mile away is a refinery which runs 24/7 and produces constant noise. Most of the sites are occupied by people working in the local area, however the park enforces there clean site policy. I doubt I would stay here again.

This is a small park off the main roads that is really in Miramar Beach (use this for accurate GPS). If entering off Scenic Gulf Drive make sure you make the first turn into the park. The sites are roomy and everything worked properly. This time of year most of the campers are snowbirds. The beach is about 4 blocks away. Easy access to nearby shopping and restaurants.

The park is clean, easy to get into and the staff is friendly. The sites are level. Negatives - Wi-fi gets overloaded in the evenings and drops off. Lighting is excessive - you can walk the park at night without a flashlight. Most sites have about 10 feet between each other. However, there are a few that sites that have adjoining sites at a 90 degree angle. The back of a Class A was 3 feet from the back corner of my rig. (50 and 51)
