Pulled in to office. No map, so don't know site #. Followed person walking. Paid on CC $68. Thought I had paid already, but paid. Open, flat nice. Was 10 minutes to interstate. Over Air was poor, to say the least. Stayed two days (don't do single over-nites). Found out I did pay twice. Office manager at the office returned my $68.00. Original order placed with Rover Pass LLC. They charged additional $10.20. My fault! Easy on off of interstate was best. We camped at Southern Gates RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

New owners. Some sites are a little off level, had to use pads to keep wheels on the ground. Very friendly staff. Clean and quiet, even through its near I75. If you use online reservation system(Roverpass), make sure they know when you get there or you will be charged double. We camped at Southern Gates RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Staff was friendly but a bit confused. I informed her I was Passport America when making the reservation. Upon check-in, she wanted $34, I said "is that Passport America rate". She said they do not take Passport America but they are still on the list. She finally charged us $22. Have no clue as to why. The park is small but right off the interstate. The few pull through sites we saw are relatively level and easy to get in and out. Probably a half dozen sites. They look like they are cleaning it up. WiFi did not work, could not even find the AP. Trees prevented most of the satellite from working. Could only pick up one Over the Air signal. $34 is pricey given no TV or WiFi. We camped at Southern Gates RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Stayed one night. Website stated fee for passport america was 25.00 but they insisted it was 32.00. We were tired after a long day of driving and didn't argue. Checked website after we left and confirmed they overcharged us. Sent them an email for refund but no response.

Campground is neat & well kept. Fellow campers near us were very nice. Owner showed us good sites for our needs. Site was level with great shade trees. We are not far from Interstate but the campground is quiet. We will definitely visit again. We camped at Southern Gates RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

The exit has nothing at it. Other exits have food and shopping. Ants, wasps, gnats, and flies. Scary people in bathhouse, laundry room and cabins. Dumpster out of control. Campground has mobile homes on perimeter. Look further up the road for much better areas. The owner is nice but nothing can be done about the location.

Easy pull through sites. Owner is very nice and accommodating walked us to our site and offered to help hook up. He stated that the WiFi was not the best and he was right. No cable. The site was shaded. The lot was not very level. Grounds were fairly clean. The playground had quite a few bugs and I had to pull the kids off of the equipment because of bees or large flies. I did not get close enough to check. The pool was a little yellow however it had been raining a lot. The dumpster was the worst part full to the top and maggots crawling around. We also had a large problem with ants in our unit after we pulled away. Cash is their preferred method of payment. There is an upcharge to use a credit card.

This is a good park for an overnight stay. Our rate of $25, was the PP rate.The park is just a short drive from the interstate. As others have mentioned, the owner is extremely accommodating, and does everything he can to be sure you have pleasant stay. The park has a lot of trees, but the owner promised we would get satellite service at our site (#20) and indeed we did. The owner was aware which sites get satellite reception. The sites do not look too level, but we had no difficulty leveling our 40 foot RV. We liked this park a lot, and will certainly stay here again.

The park is a quite park, with lots of shade. Very good price. The owner Karlis is very accomadating, asked if he could help us on many occasions. We were having a little trouble getting a signal for our Satelite dish, and he told us to put it where it would work for us. So we got it. You can also buy propane in site. While we were there he was continually working to improve the park. Nice and clean park. Would stay here again, if we are ever back in the area.

We stopped for an overnight stay on the way from FL to WI. The park was quiet with mature trees and a pull through site which accommodated our 45' Motorhome with a towed vehicle. The owners were extremely accommodating. He escorted us to our site. He even offered to help us set up for the evening, gave us his cell number and told us to call him anytime during our stay if we needed any assistance whatsoever. It was our understanding the new owners had purchased the park about 10 months prior and had been working to fix and spruce up the facility. Evidence of their work included new rock on the roads, new fencing, and a general clean up of the facility. We had a nice chat during which he pointed out areas they planned on addressing this year, plantings and flower beds they are going to install, as well as potential expansion. We were very impressed with the owners congeniality, accommodating demeanor and warmth. We believe these folks will continue their work towards making this a first class facility and will certainly stop there again if traveling through the area.

We were heading home after spending two months in Florida. Had only planned to stay a couple of days to rest but fell in love with the campground. We stayed five days instead. It was so peaceful. The new owners are great. They went out of their way to make sure everything was ok. There is a couple of ponds if you would like to fish that are catch and release. I just enjoyed sitting by them enjoying nature.The sites are gravel and level.Lots of tall pines for shade. Just a beautiful area.We plan on going back next year.

There's a store just down the road called Plantation House. A good place to get t-shirts, candy and nuts.

Love this place! Clearly the owners are making it their home and sharing it with others. Minutes from I75 northbound exit #92, it is quiet, clean, easy access, with more than enough space to maneuver any size rig. Bathroom is clean, showers with hot water and good pressure. Laundry room was an extra treat because we had been traveling for a week on our way to Florida. Very clean and worked well. Tall pines are filled with song birds and the grounds are well cleared of brush. The owners are tremendous, greeting you like family when you arrive from a short, shady road coming directly to the campground. We liked it so much we stopped again on our way back north from Florida. There is gas just before camp entrance too. Thank you Southern Gates! Keep up the good work! We will see you next year!

We have stayed at Southern Gates twice to and from Florida. The new owners are very nice and are very pleasant to work with. It is located just off the interstate but far enough away in a nicely treed area. We plan on making this a routine stop on our way to Florida each winter.

We planned to stay at this park months ago for stop along our Florida trip. Seeing a low rating that a reviewer left had us wondering if we made the right choice. Indeed we did! Southern Gates RV Park is convenient to the interstate, and the welcome at the office was very reassuring. We used our Passport America savings without a hitch. Owner escorted us to our pull through lot, which was huge! The new owners of this park are very accommodating. Staff refilled one of my propane tanks and carried to my trailer. The new owner explained that they basically bought a park that was in disrepair and are working hard to update. It appears to us they are doing a good job of it. There is a clean laundry and bathhouse, the park is clean and easy to navigate. Be sure to have your propane filled before you leave. We would certainly stay here again.

We stayed at Southern Gates last year and loved the small, quaint feel. Like going home to family. We just returned and unfortunately, it has been sold. We were so shocked at the appearance that we didn't tell the new owners we had been there before. They told us some story how "they had cleaned it up since buying it". What they did was take all of the charm and appeal of the campground away. They may have trimmed a few branches but they also tore out the gardens and plantings all over the grounds. The Office had been like walking into a friend's home but now it is stark and unwelcoming. I am very sorry to say that they have ruined a homey place and made it look like a KOA. Stark and cold. We will not be returning. We also missed the cookies that the other owner gave us. We camped at Southern Gates RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.
