Seasons in the Sun RV Resort, Mims, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here for a month at a premium back-in site on concrete pad. Beware of all the fire ants because they are aggressive and all the bees pollinating the clover. Was told at check-in we would have WiFi at our site in one week. 30 days later, we still never had WiFi at our site. Instead you needed to walk down to the clubhouse for it. The park is very uneven with respect to the quality of the rigs parked there. Some are very old and unkempt. The interior roads are tight with a long rig. On the plus side, it was quiet at night, they were doing a lot of landscape work and the site size was reasonable. We camped at Seasons in the Sun RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Not a lot going on in this area with the exception of the Kennedy Space Center and NASA. That is definitely worth visiting for a good day-long exploration. Titusville and Mims are so-so and Cocoa Beach is still tired looking. WalMart, Sam's Club and Publix are all fairly close by so that was good.

Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison, Madison, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $49.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed here one night in a 42 foot 5th wheel on a pull through premium site that consisted of crushed asphalt base and grass. The site was un-tree'd and there was no cable tv. The WiFi worked well and the hook-ups were good. The park is designed for kids in the summer time since all the in-park attractions appeared to be closed. The product received for the price paid did not match up. We camped at Yogi Bear's Jellystone Park at Madison in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Osprey RV Resort, Elberta, Alabama

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $29.00

Stayed here a month in a 42 foot 5th wheel on a beautiful concrete pad that was level, wide and long. The folks in this park went out of their way to make you feel special and were very hospitable. The park has a slew of amenities and all are very nice. The WiFi, cable and utilities were all excellent. Nice lawn that was irrigated also. The only negative would be no picnic table was available.

The town of Elberta is small, but the town of Foley is large at only 12 miles away. Florida line is 10 miles away and Pensacola another 10 miles. The U.S. Navy base is awesome for their Naval Aviation Museum. The base is the home of the Blue Angels and their practice air shows are excellent to attend. The Gulf State Park is in Orange Beach, AL and has excellent paved, bike paths.

Deer Run RV Park, Troy, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We spent a week (rate reflected above) here in a 42 foot 5th wheel on a nice concrete pad (Site 50) with great shade trees and a picnic table. The park is convenient to US 231 and easy to get in and out of. The personnel were all very accommodating as well as the folks in the park. The interior roads are gravel and can be dusty. There is a sun-belt (no shade) area that few campers were in because it was very warm there. The hook ups were convenient and the WiFi was great. Would definitely recommend to others. We camped at Deer Run RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Raccoon Mountain RV Park & Campground, Chattanooga, Tennessee

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:      

This park was recently taken over by RVC who normally has very nice RV parks. However, here, they have their work cut out for them. We stayed here in a 42 foot 5th wheel on a gravel/grass, dirt pull-through site that was pretty tight and paid a lot more for the privilege. The interior roads are tight and unpaved. The grass sites were un-mowed and the restrooms were musty and unclean. The WiFi and Cable TV worked well and the folks at the campground were very nice . They even pick up your trash 2x a day at your site which is nice. This campground is in a great location at the base of a mountain and not far from the interstate. Hopefully, in another year or so, it will be up to RVC standards, but for now the value is in the eye of the beholder. We camped at Raccoon Mountain RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Local Wal-Mart and Food City markets were within 3 miles and convenient. The Interstate 24 was within 2 miles and could take you into downtown Chattanooga within 30 minutes with lots of options there for things to do (i.e. Aquarium, shopping, restaurants. pedestrian bridge). The TVA at Raccoon Mountain was a very cool place for hiking and learning about the hydroelectric power project there. Finally, Rock City in GA was close and quite enjoyable with awesome mountain views.

Spring Lake RV Resort, Crossville, Tennessee

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

Stayed one week in this park with a 42 foot 5th wheel in a back-in site off the lake because they gave my reserved lakeside site away. This is a pet peeve of mine that when you call for a reservation and they assign you a spot on the phone, they should not give it away. It would be completely different if they did not promise the spot when making the reservation. Anyway, the park interior roads are unpaved dirt/gravel and pretty tight. First time in 4 years of full-timing I actually let the guy back in the unit because of the tightness and a nearby truck. The cable TV and WiFi were both good. The site is dirt/gravel with grass and concrete patio and table, however I had to park my truck on a slant in order to get it off the road. Park is clean, neat and quiet. Roads into and out are tight and the main road (Peavine) is under construction. We camped at Spring Lake RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Lazy Acres RV Park, Lenoir City, Tennessee

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

Stayed here one week (rate reflects that) in a 42 foot 5th wheel at Site 25. The park is located on a weaving, twisty road and then straight up a large hill. It is split into two sections and we were escorted to the far side where we found Site 25 to be very long and on an end and near the laundry room. The site was gravel/grass but clean with a concrete patio and nice picnic table. We also had a couple of nice shade trees. The interior roads are paved and fairly wide. We had excellent WiFi but no cable TV and the over the air channels could be problematic at times. This is a no frills park but very convenient to Knoxville, Lenoir City and Tellico Village. We camped at Lazy Acres RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Whispering Hills RV Park, Georgetown, Kentucky

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Rate was for a pull thru site on crushed stone, no grass, no fire ring, very poor WiFi and no cable TV. We did have a picnic table and were near the exit so that was good. The park is convenient to I-75 but the roads getting to it could have been re-paved and widened. The interior roads should be paved. Good place for convenience but would not want to stay for any length of time. People were helpful at check-in and guided us to our site which was nice.

Georgetown Horse Museum is in nearby Georgetown and is nice. Several good bourbon distillers in the area for tours (Woodford and Buffalo Trace among others). University of Kentucky in Lexington is a 22 mile drive with a free arboretum that is nice. Daniel Boone's gravesite is in Frankfort (~22 miles) as is the Capitol. Both were very nice to visit.

Arrowhead Campground, New Paris, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $54.00
Overall Rating:      

This out-of-the-way campground is way over-priced compared to most parks in America for what you receive. The price quoted was a weekly rate with discount. For that, we got a gravel site with concrete patio pull thru, picnic table and fire ring. What we did not get was any cable TV, low water pressure, and very poor wifi (owner hot spot) along with gravelly, uneven roads that were very tight for a 42 foot 5th wheel. Most of the people staying here were seasonal with only a handful of overnight sites available. This part of Ohio (near Dayton) has a lack of nice RV parks in convenient areas. We camped at Arrowhead Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is way out in corn country. The closest town of any size is 14 miles away in Richmond, IN (WalMart). Dayton, OH is 45 miles to the east where the Wright Patterson Air Force Museum is located and well-worth visiting. The town of Greenville, OH is about 15 miles away where Kitchen Aid appliances are produced with factory tours worth seeing. An Amish (Fountain Acres) market and store is available about 12 miles away.

Sterling State Park, Monroe, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $37.00
Overall Rating:      

Spent 4 nights in a 42 foot 5th wheel and the rate reflects per day rate but does not include the annual Michigan State Parks Pass you must have ($34.00/year). The park is right on Lake Erie and has great site lines, however it is book-ended by two large power plants. The bike paths are nice but pretty bumpy as are the interior roads. The sites are macadamed with grass and you are allowed wood fires. There is no WiFi and no cable TV. There are campers of all sorts and walks of life but everyone was very nice. Our pull thru was plenty long enough with some buffer between us and the next site. the electric and sewer connections were good although wish the sewer connection was threaded. All sites are sunny but we had cloud cover for most days so it was cool. We camped at Sterling State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Petoskey RV Resort, Bay Harbor, Michigan

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $55.00
Overall Rating:      

We stayed here for 60 days (2 Months) in a 42 foot 5th wheel on a beautiful concrete site with plenty of space on both sides. The site included a nice picnic table and a fire pit. The park is very nice with wide, paved roads and very little traffic. The clubhouse is beautiful with a great movie room, billards room, workout room, game room and fireplace. The park is across the road (Rt 31) from the 25 mile Traverse Wheelway Bike Trail which is awesome. Trash is picked up at your site each day and there is coffee/pastries each morning. A couple of negatives that could be corrected: 1) The ponds became filled with scum/algae and should have been addressed sooner 2) There should be a discounted monthly rate for RV'ers 3) the putting course should be called a chipping course because the greens are so soft, the ball won't roll. We camped at Petoskey RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Jack Pine Lodge Campground, Manistique, Michigan

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

This is a rustic campground in a rustic area halfway between Manistique and Munising on Rt 94. We parked here for a week in a long, level, pull through site with water/50A and sewer on dirt/stone with our 42 foot 5th wheel. There was poor wifi and no TV (over the air or cable) due to where this campground is located. The dirt roads for access leave your truck and RV dirty but you can wash them if necessary. The ability to have a nice campfire and the solitude of the outdoors among the pines was a nice effect. The folks here were very nice and tried to make your stay fun. We really liked the proximity to Munising and all the hiking, & kayaking for the National Seashore. It was a good stay for a week. We camped at Jack Pine Lodge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Scheffel's Hideaway Campground, Two Rivers, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $38.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed for a week in a pull through site with our 42 foot 5th wheel. The Site was dirt/stone and somewhat unlevel since one side of the rig lifted completely off the ground when leveled. Had to park the truck in sideways in order to fit. There is no Cable TV, however you will get some over the air channels. Cell phone coverage was also spotty. WiFi was spotty at times as well but going to the patio near the office solved that. The dirt roads are neat and wide enough, however they will get dust on everything. The water is not very good for drinking or ice making due to the dissolved solids in it. The town of Two Rivers is close by as is Lake MIchigan. We camped at Scheffel's Hideaway Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Blackhawk Valley Campground, Rockford, Illinois

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

This park is down at the bottom of a steep, narrow road on the Kishwaukee River. We stayed here in a 42 foot 5th wheel and were able to negotiate the turns without any trouble. The pull thru site was gravel/grass and included a picnic table and fire pit. The view and ambiance are what make this park charming. We had a wonderful view of a huge greenspace with big, beautiful trees around us.The river was a stones throw away from our site. The pull thru site had water/sewer/electric and was level. There was no cable TV and wifi was spotty at best. My wife and I are on different cell phone carriers and for the first time in 4 years, neither of us got a signal. However, the grounds are immaculate and the large green spaces made our short stay here worthwhile. There are lots of seasonal campers in here and one can understand why when you see the property. The internal roads can be tight and dusty since they are gravel/dirt. We camped at Blackhawk Valley Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Double J Campground and RV Park, Chatham, Illinois

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

Stayed a week at this park and the rate reflects that. We were disappointed that the site we were promised at reservation time was not the site we received. The new site was in the sun belt and too short to fit both my truck and 42 foot 5th wheel. However, we managed even when the temps soared to over 90F and the western sun glared off my RV door. The gravel roads and sites are nice however, the dust raised from vehicles was excessive and my rig needs to be washed again. The roads are narrow so be aware of all the obstacles on the lawn when turning. The park has a nice selection of free DVD's to borrow and the Cable TV and WiFi package were good. The road noise from I-55 can be excessive especially when the wind comes from the north. We camped at Double J Campground and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The park was a convenient distance from Chatham and Springfield. Springfield has Abe Lincoln being promoted 24/7/365 with the Museum, Tomb and House along with other things to see. The Museum is a must see since it is very well done.The Capitol is nice to visit as well and Springfield is a very walk-able city.
