A convenient place to stop, decent and has been upgraded since our last stay back in 2009. We camped at South of the Border in a Fifth Wheel.

Exiting was the toughest part since we are almost 60' long (medium duty Freightliner pulling a 41' toy hauler/fifth wheel).

Very cold welcome - obviously young lady did not like her job! Nice park, large sites - long. Room to maneuver. Good WiFi. Gravel sites. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

This is a good overnight stop when traveling on I-95. Easy check, friendly staff, secure area. Outside of that, there's no reason to stay any longer unless you need to be in the area. Wi/fi was excellent. Decent area to walk dogs, some sites have shade. Verizon worked good. No cable but you could get some air channels. We camped at South of the Border in a Travel Trailer.

Not a whole lot to do that I know of. Some might find the hooky shops of South of the Border interesting. It does bring one back to an earlier time of auto travel when I was a kid.

This is a good stop on I-95, a good mid-point between the Northeast and Florida. The park was almost empty when we were there. There were some low-lying off-limits spots that still had water from the big storms last year. The famous SOTB attractions are right there and fun and funky even if not particularly awesome. There is even a high bay self service Truck/RV wash. The park is open and flat without much shade or privacy. Attendants were helpful with propane. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

This is a well-maintained park with spacious sites at a price reasonable at today's rates. It is also well-situated and extremely convenient as an overnight stop. While no longer "ahead of its time" (I've been using it annually for over 30 years), upgrades and continuing maintenance have kept it a valued stop. We camped at South of the Border in a Travel Trailer.

The RV park is less than 100 yards from South of The Border's many attractions. The past 2 years have seen improvements in the tastefulness of the souvenir areas.

While this campground is part of South of the Border, it is physically located away from the hustle and bustle of the retail businesses. The sites were level, some grass, and virtually all were pullthroughs. It is right off I-95, but there was no road noise. I was actually pleasantly surprised, and would return if in the area. Wi-fi very good. We camped at South of the Border in a Motorhome.

What can you say. Been there; done that; didn't buy a Tee shirt. Our pull thru site was LONG and level. Easy to reach all services. The South of the Border facility has at least two restaurants and lots of gift shops to spend the evening looking over. This is a perfect over nite stop on I-95 heading north or south. We camped at South of the Border in a Travel Trailer.

My husband was very sick and the person driving our camper from FL to DE had never driven a big rig like ours before. The staff helped him park, and made it very easy for us to get a huge pull through with easy hookups. We got the military discount. They had a nice reasonably priced "camper" store. The tourist town of South of the Border was within walking distance. We camped at South of the Border in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.
