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.

Date of Stay:

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.

Date of Stay:

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)

Carrabelle Beach RV Resort is a very nice park. At night you can hear the waves hit the beach across the road. The staff is friendly and tries to address any problems. Office hours are 9 to 5. Water pressure is low, averaging about 30 PSI. Wi-Fi is great when it works but it was up and down my entire stay. Management blames the provider but the problem is in the park, but he sticks to his story. Most sites require some form of leveling. Park needs some TLC, such as painting the picnic tables, replacing the washers & dryers, and addition of mulch around sites. Rate reflects monthly rate. I would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Friendly staff. Most sites are back-in. Beautiful setting with views of the lake from all sites. Cable was fuzzy. Satellite depends on site due to the trees. The sewer on my site was backed-up and unusable.

The road from US 49 is a county road albeit a farm road. Once you enter the park the asphalt quickly turns to a gravel road just wide enough for any size rig. The roads are all gravel and very dusty. There were a number of long term campers here. You feel you are out in the boonies but traffic noise from somewhere can be heard at night as well as the train. Water was at 40 PSI. Wi-Fi was very slow and dropped constantly. The laundry was okay and costs $1.25 to wash and dry. Rate is Passport America. I would not stay here again.
