Fort McAllister State Park, Richmond Hill, Georgia

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

Not much shade as the last hurricane took out over 300 trees. All sites are pull through, but careful, the majority are not big enough for rigs over 30 feet. Sites are pretty sandy and be sure to bring bug repellent for gnats and horseflies. Staff is friendly, but this park needs a big hug. Quite surprising for Georgia that has among the best parks in the country. We camped at Fort McAllister State Park in a Motorhome.

Huntington Beach State Park, Murrells Inlet, South Carolina

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

Great beach location and especially that the beach is dog friendly! Florida and other states should learn from this, as it draws tourist dollars. Close enough to Charleston as a day trip or Myrtle Beach if you want tshirt shops. A bit pricey for a state park but worth it for the access to the ocean. We camped at Huntington Beach State Park in a Motorhome.

Indian Springs State Park, Flovilla, Georgia

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

This happens to be the oldest state park in the US. Nice shady sites with water, electric and cable. Wish there was sewer to make this a great destination point. Very convenient if you are on the southern route that is "anything to not drive through Atlanta". Staff very friendly. Park and bathhouses very clean. This was a two night stop over, but will stay on our list as the same when touring through Georgia. We camped at Indian Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Roosevelt State Park, Morton, Mississippi

Date of Stay: April, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

FILTHY bath houses--to the point of being unhealthy. Dirty sinks, toilets, grimy floor and walls and even excrement on walls and floor. No towels, soap and ran out of toilet paper. A rusty pool of water with floating toilet paper over a floor drain. And when I brought this situation to the attention of a maintenance person, he said he would look into it--but couldn't drive away fast enough without even stopping at the bath house.

Campsite was littered with paper and cigarette butts. Grill full of ashes. Fire ring missing, but there was a full pile of trash and ashes where it used to be. Most sites are very short for any rig over 30 feet. The only presence seen of the rangers was to pick up trash bags from the road--or once across the road to check to see if there was enough power for a karaoke machine (really). To bad. We camped at Roosevelt State Park in a Motorhome.

Cheaha State Park, Delta, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

The state of Alabama taking money away from its parks to stoke a mismanaged general fund is showing, unfortunately. We stayed here a year prior and noticed a big difference to now. Gravel sites are thinning to dirt, erosion ruts are getting deeper. All need leveling, as this is now a challenge for even smaller RVs. Staff mentioned that they have lost four employees who used to maintain the park. It's beginning to look shabby. However, the park does have some great hiking trails and overlook views. If you live in Alabama I encourage you to vote "YES" on Amendment 2 coming up in 11/16--validating the need for money and the true worth of our natural beauty in the state parks. We will be back to support. We camped at Cheaha State Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you have a rig bigger than about 25' I recommend you get a pull through site--33 thru 35 are nice. These are more level than back in sites that are in a real need of regrading and gravel. For all rigs bring extra blocks, as leveling will be a challenge. The staff is trying hard to keep up without state money needed for maintenance and repairs. But, the hiking is terrific and be sure to catch the sunset at Bald Rock, the highest point in Alabama.

James H. (Sloppy) Floyd State Park, Summerville, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This park is beautifully wooded and the staff takes immaculate care of the campsites and their campers. Spotless restrooms kept clean by wonderful hosts. Naturalists very helpful with good hiking trails. The only challenge is that most all sites have some kind of grade that made leveling our 32' motorhome somewhat of a lesson in patience. Come prepared with extra blocks or other equipment needed for this. I just wish they had full hookups but any inconvenience here is made up three fold by the wonderful, serene setting. This our first time here but will be a regular stop when exploring north from Alabama. We camped at James H. (Sloppy) Floyd State Park in a Motorhome.

Enjoy the Marble Mine trail, but be prepared to find it steep in some places. Check in with the Rangers who are very helpful in guiding you to the right degree of difficulty for you. We came in the early fall and wished we had planned to stay for more color.

Dauphin Island Campground, Dauphin Island, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:      

Sites are unreasonably close together. In fact, the neighbor's sewer hookup was right in our very narrow sitting area. And many of the sewer hookups are just pipes out of the ground where you cannot screw down the connection. The bath house is very old and past the point of getting clean. Gross. The redeeming part of the trip was close proximity to the Sea Lab and beach that allows dogs. We were looking for a close park to us for a quick getaway but will not return. We camped at Dauphin Island Campground in a Motorhome.

Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park, Saint George Island, Florida

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

Check the mosquito situation first! A week after a storm there was still standing water and, while it is posted that the county sprays weekly, you could NOT step out of your camper without being swarmed by ravenous mosquitoes. Even with heavy bug spray, it was inhabitable. After checking in the attendant said, "Hope you have bug spray because the mosquitoes are bad". A total understatement--so much that they should have given the option to adjust the stay. We planned a few nights but barely made until the next day. Even walking the dog was a nightmare for us...and our dog. We camped at Dr. Julian G. Bruce St. George Island State Park in a Motorhome.

While the mosquitoes might be less in winter months, even in September the grounds were swarmed. Call first to check on the condition. And, I would encourage the State of Florida to put a warning on their website too.

Natchez State Park, Natchez, Mississippi

Date of Stay: April, 2016 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Newer bathhouse, but mold on the tile floor and could use some scrubbing. Shower overflow leaks into stall areas. Hiking trail was not usable because of a bridge out and, worse, ticks were rampant. Even in the campsite area, just letting out dog walk just off the pavement she picked up a couple of ticks each time we walked her. The few sites lakeside in Campground B are nice as well as the wooded ones in the outer loop. Stayed a few nights but in the future, would only consider as a stop over site. We camped at Natchez State Park in a Motorhome.

Flamingo Lake RV Resort, Jacksonville, Florida

Date of Stay: January, 2016 - $57.00
Overall Rating:      

When checking in and asking about a discount given by a local RV dealer the staff said it would not be honored. When I reminded them that it was confirmed prior to the phone I received a condescending, "I am the top employee here and I say the same things to everyone." Rude, to say the least. Most of the people here live hear most of the year, so it is more of a residential trailer park. They do keep it clean, but there is no ambience and being next to the interstate there is loud road noise all the time. It might be good for a one-night stop over, but not more. Sites are jammed together. Don't book at the rear of the park, as it is dirt and field and jammed with full time residents. We camped at Flamingo Lake RV Resort in a Motorhome.

DeSoto Resort State Park, Fort Payne, Alabama

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $26.00
Overall Rating:      

The only thing to recommend would be the store carrying some essentials like milk, bread, etc. Other than that, this is by far the best park we have experienced in Alabama. The Wood Loop is more wooded and private and big rigs will also appreciate many pull-through sites. The highlight is the beautiful hiking trails all close to the campgrounds. Likewise, a short drive to beautiful overlooks and falls in the Little River Canyon. Helpful staff and beautiful woods. We camped at DeSoto Resort State Park in a Motorhome.

Hunting Island State Park, Beaufort, South Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

This is a wonderful park on the ocean with a most beautiful beach with some of the most spectacular sunrises on the Atlantic. However, two cons are the tight fit of campgrounds but the view and locale make up for this. Plan to spend most of your time enjoying the public beach and do walk to the driftwood beach on your way to the lighthouse. The second criticism is the state of the restrooms and bathhouses. They are severely out of date and so old they are surely hard to keep clean. No way to dry your hands, for example, too. A big plus is that you can climb the lighthouse and dogs are welcome on the beach. The staff is very friendly and the grounds well kept. We stayed in a 24' motorhome, but if you have a big rig be sure to request a large enough site. Very tight quarters--but the beauty of the park makes up for it. We will make this a regular visit. We camped at Hunting Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Saint Andrews State Park, Panama City Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:      

Stayed in the Pine Grove section on the lagoon and had a nice strip of our own private beach and a terrific view. Park is kept exceptionally clean by the volunteer hosts. The beach is just a short bike ride. Rangers and staff very friendly and helpful. One of the better state parks you will find anywhere. Have put this on an "A list" for return visits.
