It is hard for me to rate this campground. The owners are very nice and helpful. We had a pull-through that was adequate but only a couple of sites were adequate for our size rig. We did not use the Internet or any other utility except electric. We were in a gravel pull-through site. There was lots of construction going on and the owners were apologetic even though the noise was not intrusive to us. Verizon cell and MiFi worked well. Merrill Lane, the city street accessing the campground is very narrow and has low hanging trees. Two vehicles cannot pass each other on portions of the road. For this reason, we would not return to this campground even though it is beyond the control of the owners.

This is a good park for an overnight stop. Easy on/off the interstate and even though you can see the interstate above, the noise was minimal. The owners take great pride in maintaining this campground. Everything was tidy. Did not use provided Internet, nor did we use anything other than the electrical hook up. Our one complaint is that the sites are extremely narrow and close together. We barely had room to open our slides due to the utility hookups on one side and a big power box on the other. The nearby restaurant that is touted was a bust for us as the food was terrible. Maybe just a bad night for them. We would stay here again.

If you are looking for a safe, convenient place for an overnight stop, this is it. Easy on/ off I-64. This is a small campground located behind the owner's house. We were in a long, level pull thru site that was gravel. Water was not turned on and our rate reflected that, which is unusual. Owner would have provided water if we had needed it. We called ahead and knew the water was still shut down and we planned accordingly. Last year, we stopped at a franchise campground near Huntington that also had the water turned off and they charged three times as much. Must be self contained as there is no bath house. We had good cell service and had no trouble with our roof top satellite dish. Fuel and restaurants are nearby. We will stay here in the future when passing through the area.

We are not as enamored with this campground as others are. It is an adequate stopover and easy on/off I-10. The roads are paved and the sites are concrete but very narrow. We have opposing slides and we either had to come out on the grass or put our slide out over part of the picnic table. The sites are barely wide enough and there were many ruts in the grass because there is not enough swing room to get into the narrow sites. And the sites are very close together. When it rains, this campground turns into a swampy mess. To get to/from our vehicle, we had to walk on the swampy grass. They do offer a free carb laden continental breakfast each day. We did not check out the bathrooms or laundry as we used our onboard facilities. There is loads of highway noise and train noise so if you are noise sensitive you will not like this campground. Verizon and AT&T worked well. Office staff was friendly. Most of the patrons appear to be living there full time with a few spots for overnight travelers. We will look for another campground the next time we transit this area.

This is a very nice military campground. A maximum stay of 6 months is allowed and the pull thrus are reserved for the long term campers. There are some back in sites reserved for short term campers and there were sites available the entire time we were there. No trees in the campground courtesy of Katrina. There is lots of noise from the nearby rain track and there must be some sort of emergency services just outside the base because the siren noise was frequent. If you are noise sensitive, you may not like this campground. Office staff was very friendly and helpful. You can enter the pass gate with no issues but departed using the commercial gate because we had more swing room to get through the barriers. Bathrooms and laundry have combo locks so make sure you get the codes from the office. Free wifi is available but you have to enter loads of information and we just used our Verizon mifi which had an excellent signal. We will return.

This is a very nice COE park that has sites large enough for almost any size RV. There are both pull thru and back in sites available and many are quite long. The roads are paved and the sites are concrete. We were in the new section and we were able to use our roof top satellite with no issues. Verizon was adequate with one bar of LTE. Shopping was available in Prattville with many stores and restaurants so one does not have to drive into Montgomery. No firewood is available in the campground and we had to purchase ours at a big box hardware store. The only negative was the low hanging trees over our site which is a problem in many campgrounds. Price reflects Access Pass. We loved this place and will return sometime in the future.

This is a nice county park, but only has electric with no water or sewer. There is a dump station and water fill station available though. Sites are a mixture of grass and gravel and most are not level. Wi-Fi appeared to be available, but is password protected and you must get that from the camp host. Verizon cell and broadband worked well. Most sites are satellite friendly. There are some tight turns so if you have a big rig, caution is required to miss vehicles parked close to the road. The camp hosts were wonderful. A bit pricey, but for a metropolitan area what can you expect. We would return if in the area again.

This is an excellent military campground. We were able to make reservations and the campground manager was friendly. Sites have a concrete parking pad with a picnic table and typical campground type grill. Utilities worked well and Verizon cell and broadband was also excellent. Nice Commissary and Exchange. Mini Mart and fuel station (with diesel) located right across from the campground. However, you can find lower diesel prices outside the base. Most sites were satellite friendly. This is not a place to deploy your awning though. It is very windy, even if you tie it down. You can enter at any gate that is open as we entered the main gate with no problem. There appear to be some homesteaders. We loved this place and will return to this campground.

This could be a great little campground with a little TLC. It is easy on/off I-90 with little traffic noise. There are pull-through and back in sites available although there are issues with trees hanging too low at some of the sites. A little tree trimming would be beneficial. Sites were level and the utilities were adequate. Verizon cell and internet worked well (did not use their WiFi) and we were able to use our rooftop satellite. There are some long term campers. All in all this is good for an overnight stop. We would stay here again.

This campground is easy on/off I-90 and is geared more for the overnight camper. The office is unattended. You pull in, pick a site, fill out an envelope, add your money (cash or check only), and drop it in the box. The rate listed is Passport America for a 50 amp site. The utilities are great but the sewer connection on most sites is high. As long as you are self-contained, the campground is great. I would not want to use the bathhouse though. It was old and a bit smelly with shower curtains for doors for the toilets. Verizon cell and Internet worked well. We would stay here again.

This is a lovely state park located on Lake Herman. We stayed in the upper loop which is fairly wide open. The lower loop his heavily treed and some of those trees are way to low and need a trimming. We stayed on site 56 which was 50 amp. Our site was not level front to back and side to side. The side to side leveling issue could be taken care of with a little grading of the site. We had good Verizon phone and internet service and since our site was so wide open, we were able to use our roof top satellite. Our 5th wheel is 37 ft and it would have been challenging to access the dump station and we did not attempt it. The dual lane dump station/fresh water fill is immediately after a right hand turn and we felt that we just did not enough swing room. a small rig would not face this difficulty.You also have to buy a South Dakota annual park pass for $30 which I did not include in the nightly cost of camping. We would stay here again.

This was our first time staying in a Wisconsin State Park. I would say that this campground is not big rig friendly. There are a couple of pull through sites and ours was in the open but most of the sites are heavily treed with no sunlight penetrating at all. The trees are in desperate need of trimming. Most campers had branches laying on their rig, even the shorter ones. Problematic for us was the low hanging trees trying to exit the campground. This campground has no water or sewer but there are fill stations and a dump station available for use. The roads are pretty darned narrow too. This state park is an easy on/off I-95 but we did not hear any road noise. We will not be returning.

This is a wonderful state park. We stayed in a cabin and really did not explore much since our focus was on the Bristol Night Race and visiting family. The cabin was clean, tastefully decorated, and filled with modern amenities. We had wonderful views and saw all sorts of wild life. We did drive through the campgrounds and I would say most of the sites are not big rig friendly and are not level. There is a wicked turn onto the campground/cabin road that might cause a 5th wheel to hit the rails of the truck bed. This is an easy drive to Bristol Motor Speedway and a much cheaper option than staying in a hotel. We would stay here in a cabin again but would not bring our 37 foot 5th wheel.

We enjoyed this campground very much. It has two sections, one for smaller RVs (and there are some trees in this area) and another for big rigs which is basically a big parking lot with some gravel between the sites. The best part of this campground was the helpful and friendly staff that made our stay great. There is a nice grassy area with covered picnic tables and a play area for children. Security is just a phone call away, and they will pick you up and take you to the Casino or the nearby Metro Link. You can even flag them down for a ride. This campground is close to the interstate, and there is quite a bit of nearby train traffic. The trains are moving slowly so once the engine is past, the noise abates. These things did not bother us at all, and many RVers had out their grills and lawn chairs. Our only complaint was the sewer hook up was too high off the ground. We were still able to utilize it though. AT&T seemed to work better than Verizon and the campground offers wi-fi at the cost if $5 for the entire visit. Bathrooms and the laundry are accessed by key cards given at check in if you want to use those facilities. There are good signs getting to the campground, but you must pay attention or you will end up going into downtown St Louis via the Eads Bridge. Many people worry about East St Louis but we did not feel unsafe, Security was a constant presence within the Casino Compound. Our fees were based on the weekly rate. We will stay here again.

Rate is based on use of KOA discount card. This is just a barely adequate place to stop overnight. Campground has lots of long term campers. Sites are on grass, many are not level, and extremely close together. Some sites are side by sides and if we had a neighbor, our slides would just about touch. Water was not on and yet the price was so high. WiFi was OK and our Verizon MI-FI had a strong 4g signal. Staff was friendly. We will not stop here again.

This is a lovely Georgia State Park that has recently undergone renovations. Office/check in area has been redone and Loop 2 has had a recent addition of sewer hookups. A new bathhouse is also under construction in Loop 2 and nearly completed. Camp hosts are very friendly. We took advantage of their winter weekly rate. A one time day use fee is also added to the cost of camping. Verizon cell and mifi worked well. Not much in the town of Adel, other shopping is available in Valdosta and Moultrie. Our only complaint is the low hanging branches in many of the campsites. We would stay here again.

This is a really nice park and management obviously cares about it's condition. Strict rules about staying off the grass and there are lots of orange cones around to remind you. There are lots of long term campers here but their sites are kept up very well. Wifi worked most of the time. Some road noise from US 231 can be heard but was not a bother. Verizon phone and mifi worked well. Park offers a weekly and monthly rate. Sites and roads are gravel. Did not check out the laundry or bathhouse. Nice fenced pet area with seating available for pet owners. Escort to site. We would stay again.

This is the most expensive campground we have stayed at. We had a long pull through site in an open area so it was satellite friendly. The campground roads are narrow and in pretty bad shape. Fire pits had trash in them. Staff was friendly and helpful. Our rate reflects the KOA discount and some points that were applied. Downtown shuttle is available from a private source to take campers into Nashville for $10 per person round trip. Wi-Fi was free and TengoNet but really only worked for one day. This is a 4G area. We will stay here in the future since we feel this is the best of the three available campgrounds in the area.

This is a great park for an overnight or even a couple of days. Easy on/off I-65 and there is some noise in the campground associated with that and there is also occasional train traffic nearby too. However, we did not find the noise disturbing, just a hum in the background. Staff was friendly but they do enforce rules. The water hook up is located underground to avoid freezing in winter with a strict policy to disconnect in freezing weather. If you do not disconnect, they will disconnect you from the water hook up. Level sites. Some long term campers but sites were tidy. Satellite friendly and the wifi was good at our site (12). We will stay here again.

We were here for a rally with about 60 other RVs and we were all located in a section with back in, back to back sites. Other sections have some pull through sites. Sites were spacious and level. However, the utilities are located at the back of the site. If you stay here, you will need extra sewer and water hoses and if your electrical connection on your RV is not located near the rear, you will also need an extension cord. Free Wi-Fi is available and we were parked near a router so we had no difficulty logging onto the Internet. Others said they could not connect at all. There is Verizon 4g in this area so our Mi-Fi worked really well. Campground is wide open so no problem with rooftop satellite. There is an active train track that runs right by the campground and the trains run around the clock. A busy 2 lane road fronts the park but the noise subsides at night. We would stay here again.

Loved this campground. It is clean and the views are wonderful. Some things to keep in mind though. Cell and Internet service at least with Verizon is nonexistent. There are some serious hills to get to the campground. You could consider all the sites big rig friendly but we were on site 6 and the exit from this site was difficult even after the person in the cabin moved his car. There is just not enough room to swing to get out of the site and miss the drainage ditch. We will return but pick a different site.

This is a nice Florida State Park. There are sites for every size rig and some have sewer available. All sites are not level. Bathhouses are clean and water is heated through solar power. Verizon air card and phone service worked well. Convenient to tourist attractions and shopping. Campground is about 3 miles back from the entrance and some road noise is evident although not bothersome to us. We will stay at this campground again.

This is a way over price campground. It was $40 with our KOA Card. Many of their sites were closed for the winter. We had a pull through site and we were able to level. However a pet peeve of ours is campgrounds that do not trim their trees properly. We hooked up to depart and discovered that there was no way we could leave the site without hitting pine cone filled branches. We had to get on top of the RV and trim the branches before we could depart. WiFi was good. The office staff was very friendly. We would not stay here again.

I would call this a big rig accessible park, not big rig friendly. As previous posters have described, sites are perpendicular to the road and difficult for a big rig to back into without driving on the grass. Water was off for the winter season but there was potable water available at the dump station. It was a muddy mess when we were here because of all the rain that had occurred before we arrived. Just a note of caution: the holiday light display is accessed through the campground and you may have difficulty getting back to the campground in the evening if you are out later than 5:30 pm. I do not think we will stay here again.

This is a city park and its main draw is the NuWa RV factory just a short distance away. The first 2 nights are free and it is $10 per night afterwards with a stay limit of 14 days. You put your camping fees in a lock box by the dump station as there is no host/attendant. We had good Verizon cell and air card service with our booster antenna and the Wi-Fi worked well. There is a bathhouse near the campground that is old but useable and there is a dump station available. It was extremely hot while we were there but no power problems. We will stay here again.

This is a great place for an overnight or a couple of days. There is a laundry with 2 washers and dryers but no bathrooms. This campground is adjacent to an RV dealer. Easy access from interstate.

Stopped here just for an overnight stay. Campground is a couple miles off the interstate and through a residential area. Office staff was friendly. Verizon air card and phones worked well. Wi-Fi was adequate. Campground was heavily wooded but office staff assists with parking and are very knowledgeable with how to get into and park on your assigned spot. There is some shade which was good because it was extremely hot while we were there so we did not check out the rest of the park. We would stay here again.

This is a campground good for an overnight stop. Price reflects Escapees discount and discount is available with cash or check payment. Site was long and fairly level.

This is an adequate campground for an overnight stop. Rate was Passport America and cash or check only. There are approximately 8 sites with side by side connections for overnight stops but even though you face your neighbor, the sites were not close together. Site was long, level, and the utilities worked well. Adequate reception for Verizon phone and aircard. Nice restaurant called Belle Starr Grille near the campground that served good food at great prices. This campground is several miles off the interstate and requires some navigating but there were plenty of signs to help you locate the campground. We would stop here again.

This was our first stay in a Texas State Park and it was wonderful. This campground is easily accessed from the interstate. You do have to transit a raised railroad crossing to get into the state park. There was only one other RV in the campground and it was not occupied while we were here. Many of the sites are considered pull throughs, though they are parallel to the road, not what I consider a traditional pull through. Electric and water service was good. Only had one bar of Verizon cell service and did not try out our aircard. The sandhills are beautiful and it was a lovely place to spend the night. There were lots of non-aggressive bees everywhere. Even though we were the only ones here, we did not feel unsafe as we were locked in after 10 pm. Part of the camping fee was $3 per person Texas State Park Access fee. We would stay here again.

This is a good park for an overnight or even for a few days stop. Easy access to the interstate. Even though we were so close, we did not hear any road noise inside our RV and did not notice any train noise until we were preparing to leave. Staff was friendly and our site required no leveling. Verizon air card and phones worked well. This is a Good Sam park. We would stop here again.

I like this RV park because it has only a few park models. The staff was friendly and helpful and so were the park residents (most were snowbirds). Lots of activities are planned and there is a nice heated pool and hot tub. Some of the sites require leveling and can be a challenge to back into (the park manager is very helpful with backing). Verizon phone service is fine but our Verizon aircard did not work well. It must be Apache Junction because we had 4G service in Mesa. It is easy to get around the Phoenix area because of the great roads and shopping is easily accessed. We would certainly stay here again if we could get in.

This is a nice enough park full mostly with long term campers. The parking pads are paved but only 50 ft long. Big rigs can park their tow vehicles on the gravel next to their RV. Parking pads slope in the front and the rear of the sites. They do have an free observatory but weather was poor while we were there. Laundry was nice and other campers were friendly. Thought that this was a pretty expensive campground. Do not waste your time going to Tombstone. Every venue costs money. Bisbee is much more interesting and the Queen Mine Tour was fun. We would stay here again.

This is a typical snowbird park. Lots of long term campers with a few overnighters coming in. Just a gravel parking lot with hook ups. Big enough though for our big rig. Just a stopping off place for us. Did not even check out the bath house or the laundry. Verizon aircard worked well. We would stay here again if passing through the area as many of the parks look exactly like this one.

This is a really nice military campground. No reservations though but we had no trouble getting a site. It is not on the base but is patrolled by security. There is a military fuel station/mini mart right across from the campground that sells diesel fuel. Base is not far away and the PX is wonderful. The commissary is also great but a new one is under construction. We were in the new section and the laundry/bath house facility was really nice. The only drawbacks for those sensitive to noise is the major road that runs in front of the campground and also the crime activity along the border. Rate reflects weekly rate plus National Access Card discount. We will stay here again.

We moved to this park because we could not extend at our current park. Needed a place to wait out the winter storm. Staff was friendly and our site was long and gravel. We did not check out any amenities because we were hunkered down to ride out the brutal cold and wind that hit the area. Strong 3G Verizon air card service. Due to the extreme cold, the water from the riser was frozen (no fault of the park). Easy on/off the interstate. A little pricey but we would consider staying here again.

This is a nice military campground. The staff is friendly and helpful. Good roads and concrete pads to park on. Excellent Verizon 4G air card service. I am surprise that there have not been many comments on the noisiness of the campground. Trains run frequently and if you are bothered by noise, you will not like it here. Roads on the base (not the campground) are some of the worst I have encountered. Laundry is $.75 per load wash/dry but there is no place to fold clothes. We would happily return here again.

This is a good place to stop for a night or two. Staff went out of their way for their customers. Park is mainly long term campers but they have a row in the back for overnight. Campground is dirt and gravel and it tracks inside your rig. Good Verizon air card and phone service. Spectacular view from the park. Easy on/off the interstate. Park had a water problem due to the extreme cold. No water was available and repairs had to be made to their well. Thankfully, we always carry some fresh water on board. Situation was corrected within a day. The winds can howl at this place. We would stay here again.

This is a good place to stop for a couple of nights as long as it does not rain. The parking pads are just wide enough for the RV and after rain, it is a muddy mess to hook up. There is no drainage at all. Verizon aircard and phone service was good. Laundry was adequate. Easy on/off the interstate. There is a train that runs just behind the park (pretty loud) but did not run at night. There are also sports fields right behind the park that would be pretty annoying if their lights were on. Office staff was friendly. Nightly rate was for Passport America. We would only stay here again if we knew no rain was forecast.

This is a state park located in an urban area. The campsites are nice but there is not much else to do in the campground. Washers/dryers are old and most were not working when we were here. Lots of work going on along the levy in the park, constructing a new sea wall so you hear pile drivers at work 7 days a week. You have to run a gauntlet of construction vehicles in the state park to get to the campground. The park office personnel are very helpful. Easy to get to the free ferry to go the French Quarter. We would stay here again.

This park is good for a couple nights. Easy on/off the interstate. The owner keeps some sites for overnighters. The rest are filled with long term campers. Check in is kind of awkward as you are blocking the main campground road. We had to turn around and come back out to get to our back in site. We felt a little rushed trying to get parked because other rigs were coming in and we were blocking the road. Verizon aircard and phone service was good. Laundry room was adequate. We would return to this campground again.

This is a great military campground. We had a back in site and stayed for a month and rate reflects the monthly price. Campground is neat and clean. Awarded S.M.A.R.T. Military Campground of the Year in for the second consecutive year. Bath facilities are among the cleanest I have ever seen. Laundry is free. There is a Verizon tower on base but we really did not get a good signal for our aircard without our external antenna. Commissary and exchange are small but adequate. We will stay here again.

Lots of trees that could impact roof mounted satellite systems. We would stay here again.

This is a little bit of distance off the interstate. Long, level pull through sites with escort to site. No room for parking your tow vehicle in the front of your site. Must park it to the side and rear of your RV. If you want to use your satellite dish on a tripod, they are very strict on where you can place it. Verizon cell and air card each had 4 bars of service. Most of the occupants are permanents or snowbirds. Nice clean looking park. We would stay here again.

Easy access from the interstates. Site was high in the front but level side-to-side. Campground roads are in need of repair since the flood. Verizon cell service was adequate but we could not use our Verizon air card without a amp and booster antenna. Staff was friendly and helpful. Laundry was great as all the equipment is new and plentiful, $1.50 per wash/$1.00 to dry. You can arrange for a shuttle ($10 per person round trip) to downtown Nashville to see the sites. We would return to this campground.

This is a great stopover for a night or two. Campground has easy access to/from the interstate. Pull into a site, then go to the office to pay. Sites in front of park are long pull throughs allowing the traveler to stay hooked up if only staying overnight. Verizon air card signal is 4 bars of broadband. Park is nicely landscaped and very clean. No problem setting up our Direct TV. If you are sensitive to noise, this park is close to the interstate and you can hear the train in the distance but was really not noticeable inside. We would stop here again.

We visit the area several times a year visiting family and usually stay in one of the KOAs located on I-70. We were very dissatisfied with their high priced, unlevel sites so we found an alternative at Fox Den Acres. This campground has 2 sections: the upper level is heavily treed and the lower section is a large, level field with full hookups. We have a 40 ft 5th wheel and this was perfect for us. We found the staff friendly and helpful, Verizon cell and air card worked satisfactorily, and it was easy in/out to the nearby interstate. The price is much lower that the KOA's. We will stay at this campground from now on when we are in the area.

Popular campground for an overnight stop. Easy access from the interstate. For people sensitive to noise, this campground would be too noisy as there is a dog pound, busy road, and truck stop nearby.

We chose this campground because we wanted to visit the Vicksburg area and we have a big rig. This is the first campground we have stayed at that we asked to move sites. Our original site was near the bath house (assigned by management) and the permanent campers walked right through our site right up by the door. We would not have been as bothered if they had used the perimeter of our site. We noticed they placed another camper in that space after we moved, and they also moved to another site. Verizon cell and aircard worked adequately. This campground is wide open so getting DirecTV was not an issue. Did not like the laundry. We would not return to this campground.

This is a very nice park for a stay of a couple of nights. Most of the sites are pull throughs and have concrete pads to park on. You are close to your neighbor though. Bathrooms were clean and laundry was nice and reasonably priced. Management was very friendly and helpful. Office is only open a short time in the morning and evening. You just pick a spot and pay when the office is open. Verizon cell and aircard worked adequately. Able to set up our DirecTV. There is a train that runs behind the rear of the property and a fairly busy road nearby. We could not hear the noise inside but if you are sensitive to those sorts of sounds, this may not be the park for you. Accepts Passport America but must pay cash or check. We would stay at this campground again.

Loved this campground. This was our first visit to a COE campground and it will not be our last. We liked it so much, we extended our stay 3 nights. We were on site 37 and it was gigantic. We were not directly on the water but facing a marshy area with a large variety of birds to entertain us. Verizon cell service was not good but with the aid of our amp and trucker antenna, we were able to use our aircard. There is laundry available in the bathhouses. The only drawback to this campground is that it is far away from anything. Camden does have a grocery store and a few fast food restaurants. So if you want more than that, you have to travel a bit to find more amenities. Lots of boaters at this park. We would return.

This is a good park if you only plan to stay overnight. The positives: You are escorted to your site and the bathroom and laundry were very clean, some of the cleanest I have seen. It is easy access from U.S. 231. Verizon cell service and air card access was great. The bad: sites are very close together. You are bombarded with noise from 3 sources-very busy highway noise, a loud freight train close by, and the helicopters from Ft Rucker. We were also disappointed that the dog run was in very bad shape. It appears that long tern tenants are staying in the park. Would we stay here again-probably not. This park does seem popular with snowbirds who stop for a night on their way to/from home.

We found this to be a lovely campground for a couple nights stay. No, it does not have a pool or game room but is a very pretty, quiet little campground. Owner takes obvious pride in keeping the place very clean and pretty. Lots of little decorative details located all over the campground. Room for any size rig. They do have a restrictive dog policy that includes what most would consider "aggressive breeds" like pit bulls and all their variations. Verizon cell and air card works well. Laundry cost is $1.25 per load. Liked the trash receptacles located throughout the campground. Good common area for walking pets. Few restrictions with Passport America. Easy access to I-75 and I-10 and campground is easy to find. We would stay here again.

This is a really great Georgia State Park. The campground volunteers are a great group and do all they can to make your stay pleasurable. Sites available for any size rig. Verizon air card and cell service was very good. Laundry was $.75 per load. Firewood was pricey at $5.00 for a small bundle. We will return again.

We were park volunteers and stayed at this park for 4 months. Very nice sites that can accommodate any size rig. Waterfront sites are close together. Only one bath house is heated. Washer/dryer cost is $1.00 per load. Verizon cell and air card service is excellent as there is a Verizon tower located in the park. Beware that there can be loud music during the weekends from the Marina. Loop one would really hear it. Wal-Marts are located in Americus and Cordele. We would stay in this park again.

I have mixed feelings about this park. I have never seen a campground set up like this before. All the sites are pull throughs located parallel to the road. Yes, many of the sites are spacious and some, depending on which side of the road you are camped, are private. Many larger rigs do camp here but the location of trees within the site make it impossible to pull through some sites. Some of them would have to be backed into/out of. Campground loops are two way with very narrow roads with trees close to the road and I am not sure what would happen if 2 rigs met each other. They do have a large parking lot where you can disconnect and drive through which is a big hassle for a 5th wheel. Camp hosts did not interact with campers. Comfort stations (bathhouses) are old but clean. Dump station is located in a weird location. We had to exit our loop and drive all the way around the park to access it because it is in the middle of the park, not on the way out. Not sure if we would stay here again.

This is a great campground for either an overnight stop or even a stop of a few days as there are some sightseeing possibilities in the area. Easy in/out to I-95. Road noise and occasional train may bother some. Bathrooms and laundry room were very clean. Verizon Air Card worked well. Staff friendly and helpful, escorting you to your site and giving directions to businesses in nearby towns. We would stay at this campground again.

This campground is only adequate for an overnight stay. Unfortunately, we usually stay longer visitng family in the area and this campground is the best of the worst close to our relatives. This KOA has very narrow sites located on a hillside and there is very little room in between sites. We chose a water/electric site because we damaged our rig getting out of a full hook up site. Smaller rigs may not have as much of a problem. Lots of seasonal campers located here. We decided not to use the dump station as it is slanted incorrectly and would not have allowed our tanks to empty. Verizon cell and air card service is good. This campground is not located in Madison, but in Ruffs Dale, PA. I-70 is really weird in this area. There are no acceleration lanes to get on interstate. You have to stop before entering and hope no one runs you down as you come up to speed.

This was a good park for an overnight stay. Some might be bothered by the road noise from nearby I-70. Restrooms and laundry room were dated but very clean. Odd though that the bathroom stalls did not have doors only shower curtains. One negative for us was the low hanging tree branches at our site. With management's permission, we cut them enough so they would not tear up our roof. We would stop at this campground again.

This is a beautiful state park, just not for big rigs. We called the state park in advance of making reservations and they said "no problem" for our 40 foot 5th wheel. We stayed at the Lakeside campground loop. Our site was long enough for us to park. Getting in was not the problem, we did not think we would be able to get out. We had to trim some low hanging limbs to protect our rig and required the help of 2 other campers to get through the very narrow, sharp turn with trees on either side. We only scraped a hubcap on a front tire and we feel very fortunate at that. One campground loop would be problematic for most 5th wheels because of the big dip once in that loop and it has a same way in/out. Not sure what you would do if you met someone. The other campground loop up near the office has a low, narrow bridge that floods. Once that happens, you are stuck until the water recedes. Campground roads are narrow, hilly, and twisitng but driveable. It is a beautiful park and it looked like the fishing was good. We will not return though because it is really not big rig friendly.

This campground is in the middle of nowhere. There is marginal cell phone service and we had to use a antenna and booster to use our air card. It is an older campground and the bath houses show that. They recently put in some sewer hookups for some of the sites. Pull through sites were extremely unlevel. Hook ups arre in wierd locations. They were on the opposite side for us so bring extra hoses and cords and we had vewry little water pressure. Campground is located in a "dry" county and stores of any size are a minimum of 1o miles. The road into the campground is a shocker for people who have never been there before. You must make a sharp left hand turn and then go up a very steep hill. Better have a good tow vehicle if you have a big rig to get up this hill. It is actually easier to get out than in. We probably would not stay here again.

This is a military campground. This used to be a mobile home park and has been converted to a RV park. Sewer hook ups are in wierd places because of this. Beware of sites that flood. We always had a big puddle to step into when getting in/out of our rig and there was lots of rain. This campground has no cable TV or WiFi service and the rates are higher than some of the other local military campgrounds. Camp host was helpful. If you like the screaming sound of FA-18s, this is the place for you. I realize that this is a military facility, however, the military jets fly over (low) all day until about 10:00 pm and they are very loud. For this reason, we would only stay here again if we could not get into another military campoground when in the area.

This is a wonderful Virginia State Park. Will accommodate large rigs in both the pull throughs and back ins in the newer loop. Camp hosts were wonderful. Verizon Air Card service was good. Shopping and restaurants were nearby. Beware, there is a $5.00 per night per pet charge. Will stay at this park again.

This is a rustic campground located approximately 25 miles east of Charlottesville, VA. This campground has lots of fulltime and seasonal campers. A few of the campers are old but not junky. The dump station was difficult for us to get to because there are so many trees. Bathrooms were clean, at least the ones by the office were. We would stay at this campground again.
