Stopped overnight coming & going on Florida trip in March. Very convenient, easiest on/off Interstate that I have encountered, but no noticeable road noise in the campground. Gas stations, restaurants & convenience store in South of Border complex, too, but the self-service car/RV wash ($2) is the big plus if you drive thru snow/slush to get there. The restrooms are a bit dated, and the hot water in the showers takes quite a while to arrive, but everything works and is reasonably clean. Campground discounts for just about everyone - AAA, AARP, Good Sam, Military - so an excellent choice for a reasonably priced, no-hassle overnight stop. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

Significantly improved since our last stay. In 50 amp sites, which were pretty tight getting in/out of due to a fence across the road and the way long term campers had to park their trucks. We were in site 176. Very cold, did not hook up water or sewer hose.

Roads were paved and in pretty good shape. Trees well trimmed. No problems with scraping branches. Very good overnight park. Walking distance to all types of restaurants on the property (the steak house is excellent) if you don't want to cook. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Peddlers's Steak House on property. Very nice.

Easy access from I-95, but when you come off intestate, turn right toward the tourist place South of the Border. As you approach the establishment look for a large statue of a dude in a big sombrero on your left with gas station behind it. Turn "left" on to a very rough road and look for the office dead ahead. Campground is gated with narrow paved roads, good electric, water, good WiFi, and satellite reception. It is an older park and if you need 50amp, make sure you ask for same. We'd stay here again if we had to, but not a place we'd make as a destination. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

Rate is with AARP discount, 50 amp pull thru (both are extra). OK for overnight, but not worth the price. Of all the sites available, they put us in #171, between two trees that both brushed against our motorhome. There were quite a few sites without obstructions, so why not either put customers in those, or how about trimming the trees???? I'd say less than 20 sites occupied of 100. Convenient to I-95, but that's the only thing going for it. Will not return. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

Rate is for 30 amp, back-in site with AARP discount. Very convenient to I-95 - easy on & off, but road noise wasn't noticeable in the campground. South of the Border is "fashionably tacky" at best, but it's pretty good for an overnight stop at a reasonable price. I camped on a Friday in mid-September and less than 20% of the campground was occupied, which made for a quiet setting. Sites are level, and reasonably sized. Restroom/bathhouse was clean although a bit dated. Gas, souvenirs, fireworks, restaurants and shopping are readily available at the complex. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

Good overnight stop off I-95. Almost no road or train noise. Park has been spruced up since our last visit a few years ago. Utilities worked well. Easy in, easy out. Verizon MiFi and cell worked well. Will stay again for overnight. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

Nice handy place to stop on our way back from FL. Easy to get to with lots of pull thru sites. We have used this CG for several years. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

Long pull-through gravel sites, pretty level. Some power hookups are pretty worn. Good for overnight stay, quieter than I thought it would be. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

Being that a rating scale of 1 - 10, 5 being average, I give this CG a 6. Easy on/off of I-95, the sites are OK and the utilities were good. The power posts are very old, the 50 & 30 AMP connectors are well used and warn. Over the air TV channels were good also. Bath house #2, was very dated and needed a good coat of paint. Easy walk to all the activities of South of the Border. It is a gated CG, so you need a card to access the grounds. I would stay here again. We camped at South of the Border in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy park to get to from I-95 or US 1. For some reason, we were put in a back in site rather than pull-through, with dozens of PTs available...but easy enough to back in. Campground has a security gate and full hookups. No cable, and wi-fi did not work for us. Bath houses were not close..we didn't use them. This is strictly for overnight, and good for that, but the campground does not seem as well maintained as when we stopped a few years ago. However, most of the businesses in the area have been abandoned and are in sad disrepair. We would return if in that area and needed an overnight stay. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

Really a nice place to stay. We did not like our first site so they gave us another. Lots of grass to walk our cats. Trailer Life directory said the sites were 15 feet wide but they seemed much wider. Lots of room, and we had rigs on both sides. Plenty of room to move around with our 35 foot rig. Would stop there again. Price was right, too. We camped at South of the Border in a Fifth Wheel.

Stopped here on our way back from Florida. This park is showing its age and lack of quality upkeep. The site are OK with just OK hookups and the bathrooms are Old and need of updating along with better cleaning methods. Dogs were roaming the park unleashed and there didn't appear to be anyone checking on the campers, just a lone girl in the office to check you in. We camped at South of the Border in a Fifth Wheel.

We arrived tired, cold, wet, after dark, and hungry for an overnight stop. Easy access to I-95, simple check-in and a pull-through spot. We were able to eat and obtain some essentials without unhooking. We used it as an overnight stop, but would be good for a couple of days. Good handicapped access. We camped at South of the Border in a Travel Trailer.

This is our second stay at this park. First time we were in a 30 amp spot and we found it a bit confusing pulling in, as we were given little direction from staff regarding how to pull in to these sites. We finally figured out: that depending on where your sewer was, dictated how you went into site. Second stay we were in site 175. Pull through and level. Both times we stayed while enroute to Florida. This is an excellent stopover. Lots of little stores to browse. WiFi available apparently in a central location, we had Mifi so that was not a concern for us. Very quiet park, staff during second visit very friendly and helpful. This place will always be an annual stop for us. We camped at South of the Border in a Fifth Wheel.
