Spent a week here, not because we just like the park, but because it's the only one in town. Redeeming factor: they give a 50% FMCA membership discount; you can put up with a lot for $15 a night. Our first time staying there two years ago, we were awakened by roosters every morning - they're gone now, never to return and the park is pretty quiet. Park is heavily full-time residents, several of whom don't understand that their dogs need to be on a leash. Staff is real nice and the laundry facility is pretty good. Shady spots are given to the permanent residents. Parking spots are uneven in places and none are paved. The designated pet walking area takes you to the back of the park; we chose not to potentially run a gauntlet of unleashed dogs. Instead, we took our dogs down a dead-end street that runs in front of the park, just as we did last year. Park is very close to Thomasville's attractions and near a major 4-lane street. Like I said, you can put up with a lot for $15 a night and pleasant park management.
Top notch RV Park. Smaller park set in the woods, was part of a large family farm. Owner set aside a large wooded area for use as an RV park. Spaces are reasonably level and are accessed off a long circular drive. Didn't see any spaces that would be tough to get into, even though most of them are back-in spaces. We had no difficulty putting our 30' RV into a back-in space. Park is quiet. is a couple of miles off a main highway Access to Iowa City and area attractions is really good. We're planning to take a long weekend and go back in several months - it was that pleasurable and relaxing. If you have dogs, be prepared for an extra pleasurable time. The owner mows wide trails through the woods every spring, giving you great places to walk your dogs where they can be in nature's good smells. Our rottweiler and doberman sniffed up a couple of rabbits the day we left and had an absolute ball tracking them! The dogs thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend we stayed there!
Very helpful and nice staff. Caters to hunters and fishermen, which seems to mean lots of late night arrivals and very early morning departures, so there's a bit of noise. Would stay there again if we're in the area. However, it's not near anything other than a lot of trees, so if you're looking for a town close by for evening entertainment, look elsewhere. It's adjacent to a county road that seems to double as the local Daytona 500 practice road and there is not a fence separating the park from the roadway (think safety hazard for kids and pets).
Pretty nice campground and nice staff. No dog park, but lots of room to walk the four-legged kids. Level pull-through space, quiet, pretty peaceful and relaxing. It appears to have some permanent residents, but park was still quiet and lived up to KOA standards. The road back to the park from the highway was a bit narrow, but not a white-knuckle exercise. We'd stay there again if we're in the area.
Pretty campground. Caters to boaters and fisherman using Lake Allatoona. Appear to be lots of permanent units for folks using the resort. We got in late, well after dark, so the security officer handled our booking. I've never had such a fast tour of an RV park in my life. I couldn't tell a thing about the sites we'd supposedly seen. Paved sites, but they're not all level. We drove to the site we were assigned, but it was nowhere near level. We just took another one that was close to level and set up, knowing we were leaving the next morning. Campground store was well-stocked. Park is several miles off the interstate, but it's a nice place to stay. Advise getting there during daylight so you can pick out a more level spot than we did. Back-in space, but it wasn't a problem.
Large park, but doesn't feel like it! Plenty of room between RV sites, plus it's in a wooded area, so the trees help set areas apart. There's ample space to walk dogs through the woods, so they get to enjoy new smells as we enjoy the trees. Owners were really pleasant and accommodating. Nice place to stop and relax after a long day's drive. We plan to stay there again whenever we're though that part of Illinois.
One of our two favorite overnight stops when heading southeast from Omaha. The owners are as nice a couple as you'd ever want to meet. It's close to the interstate, but not that loud. It's got some shady spots and a terrific store where they sell all kinds of bulk spices, Amish foods, jams, jellies, local handicrafts, and other neat stuff. There's a large area to let dogs run on long lines so they can burn off some energy.
There are some drawbacks to this park, but the pluses far outweigh any limitations. First, the drawback. It's basically an empty lot that's been converted to an RV Park, so there isn't much shade or scenery (hence the 8 instead of a higher grade). On the plus side, they've got a large dog park, level drive-through pads, and the most helpful husband and wife owners we've ever encountered. We got in late, yet they were there to meet us and escorted us to our site. The husband is mobility impaired, but that didn't stop him from driving his scooter out to our pad and lighting the utility area for us while we made the connections. His wife asked if we had all the supplies we needed for the evening, gave us precise directions to a couple of places we needed the next morning. When we checked out the next morning, a young couple was just leaving and I over heard them telling the owners how much they appreciated what they'd done for them over the past couple of months. The owners are just good folks and an absolute pleasure to deal with. We stay with them again without hesitation.
One of our favorite overnight spots. Set in the woods, very nice park manager who will go the extra mile to make sure your needs are met. Reasonable sized dog park, which is a major plus for us with large dogs. Quiet, peaceful, very relaxing.
Outstanding camping experience! The owner is as nice a person as you could hope for. She takes great care of the park, even cutting trails through the woods that surround the park. We enjoyed the trails immensely, but our dogs told us they enjoyed them more! Relaxed country atmosphere on the edge of a college town urban area - best of both worlds! Shady sites, all services/utilities were great and excellent OTA TV reception. Tons of stuff to do (we enjoyed the fossil beds, Hoover Museum). We'll definitely be back for many more visits!
