Nice park right on the water. They apparently have an ant problem and warn you on the way in but it rained so hard while we were here that we did not have an issue. The park is conveniently located to the USS Alabama battleship exhibit which was our main reason for staying in the area. The park is fairly quiet but you can hear freeway noise from I-10. The sites were wide and paved and easy to get in and out of. We had Wi-Fi and decent Verizon coverage. The bathrooms were large and clean.

The park is a little out of the way to get to. Our GPS lead us down Clermont road that had a huge hump over a railroad track that would have bottomed out our trailer, so we had to turn around and go Lower Bay to Lakeshore so beware. The campground itself is definitely in rebuild mode, but the sites were nice and the bathroom/shower facilities new. The campground is a bit muddy due to the recent construction, but the sites are paved. The laundry facility was still under construction. There is a nice playground for the kids. There was decent Verizon service here.

This is a nice park that is a comfortable distance from New Orleans. The laundry is free as stated but that also means very popular, so you may have to do some waiting to get your loads in. The park is pretty quiet and had a nice playground for our kids. The dump station was easy to access on the way out of the park. Verizon service worked well. WI-FI says it is available, but we had little success getting it to work. The ferry is about half an hour drive from the park and requires a $10 per day parking fee, but besides that was very easy to get on and explore the city. We would camp here again.

The owner seemed very nice. We arrived after dark and were not sure which of the two available sites to take as there is no office at the park. We pulled into the field by the park and our tow vehicle sunk into the soft ground. We called the owner and he met us onsite. We should have called him first to get the run down of the best way to get into the sites. After backing into the road and then backing into the park we got into the site. The hook ups all worked very well and the park is very quiet. The park is definitely out of town and there are no bathroom facilities but it was comfortable. We stayed on the Passport America rate.

Nice park. Level sites. Orange trees and ponds around the park. Nice pool that the kids had a great time in. Very nice staff. Showers and bathrooms were nice and clean. Park is big rig friendly and has a security gate. Fairly close to Kennedy Space Center. Verizon wireless was a bit slow here and the Wi-Fi is only at the clubhouse. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for two and a half weeks. This is a nice park. The RV area is at the end of interior road of the park. The road inside the RV area is a little tight in some areas and had some sharp potholes making it a bit tricky to get around. The park got very busy on a couple of weekends that we were here - a dog show one weekend and a regatta another which made the park a little hard to get in and out of. Bathrooms are older and in OK shape. Sites are a bit unlevel but workable. Grounds are well maintained. Laundry was adequate but one dryer was broken so competition for machines was a bit high. Security gate locks at night but they give you a code to get in. Ours did not work the first night but the after hours person was reachable via phone and we got back into the park after about a 10 minute wait. Staff seem very nice and helpful. Verizon 4G service was decent to good here.

The campground is in a nice quite location but has very easy access to the highway to get to Philadelphia. We used it as a home base for a day to see the sights. The campsites were a little muddy and close together. The bathrooms were clean and the campground management was very nice and helpful.

Great campground with full hookups and in a great location with just a short walk to the beach. The kids loved the playground. We visited in the off season which was great from a crowd perspective. The washing machine by us was broken and the showers require you to hold a button while showering. Construction was going on while we were there which was a little loud and took away from the scenery aspect. Other than these items a great campground and very enjoyable stay. The campground host was very nice and helpful.

The campground is a nice location in the woods. Sites are well spaced and utilities all worked well. The owners and hosts are very friendly and helpful. About a 10 minute drive to Freeport. Wi-Fi worked pretty well. The bathrooms were in pretty rough shape but it might be due to being late in the season or that a windstorm blew through while we where there dropping gunk in the bathrooms. Verizon signal pretty weak so you will need to rely on their Wi-Fi for Internet. We would stay here again.

I really wanted to like this campground. The electric sites were full when we arrived so they let us choose a site. The sites are on grass which looks nice but when it has been pouring down rain it makes it dangerous to park in as most of the sites are on a hill. We had a large group of loud young adults next to us keeping us up until about 1AM. Bathrooms are pretty scary - found a spider crawling up my leg while drying off. We paid for two nights but wanted to leave after one. When we told them we were checking out early due to noisy campers and slick grass sites they said that there would be no credit for our second night. At that point we did not care as we did not want to stay another night here. The campground looks really beautiful and I bet the hiking is great. Too bad the camping was so bad.

Excellent RV park. The management was very helpful and friendly. The park is well kept up, wireless internet was good, bathrooms clean and services good. They have some great walking trails that we really enjoyed. The only issue we had was our pull through site was curved and our trailer is a long one so it brushed against some branches on the way out. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a nice RV park if you want to stay in this area. As stated in another review the park is owned by the RV dealership next door so some of the sites are filled with overflow from the lot. The host was great and made us feel welcome and let us pick the site that worked best for us. The road noise is fairly loud as it is right by the highway. Water hookups are quite a bit away if you have a mid-rig connection. We would stay here again. The Bragg Farm Sugarhouse is worth a visit nearby.

We got a nice lake front site that let the kids play in the lake while we could see them from the trailer. The park has nice sites with grass between and alot of trees to provide shade. The park has some great hiking/running/biking trails as well. It looks like you can rent canoes at the boat launch area. The bathrooms had adequate facilities for the size of campground it was. The showers were fairly clean and worked well. We had good Verizon 4G service here. Alexandria is only a few minutes away if you need services or for shopping. Only complaint is the parking fee parks in Minnesota seem to like to charge. If they are going to charge it, make it part of the daily fee vs. having it separate. The price we listed included the daily fee for our tow vehicle. We had a nice relaxing time and definitely would stay here again.

The campground itself is beautiful. The sites are well separated with lots of trees. The roads are dirt which kick up some dust when windy but nicely laid out. The bike/running trails are really nice. It is very quiet here and a nice retreat from the busy city. We got good Verizon service here with 4G coverage. The reason we rated it lower was the bathrooms. Not sure who designed them but for a full campsite with no sewer there were not enough facilities. In addition, the showers were small and pretty dirty with bugs joining us for most of our showers. Finally on Saturday morning at 8:30 AM is when they decided to "clean" the bathrooms which makes no sense vs. the afternoon or evening. For having to pay the extra fee I guess we expected cleaner and better designed bathrooms. Besides that the park is great!

Nice large gravel campsites. The West campground has nice trees, while the East does not, so on a hot day make sure you camp at the West campground. The park has some really great hiking trails and a Frisbee golf course. We went on a guided hike by a Ranger who did a great job keeping the kids entertained and we learned a lot. The bike trail looks like it would be a really fun family thing but we did not have our bikes with us.

Pretty much a gravel parking lot, but the RV sites back right up to the lake so this makes up for the lack of grass and room between sites. The showers looked like they had not been cleaned in a month or more. The price is great for full hookups this close to the lake. We also have 4 kids so normally that would mean extra fees, but there are none here. We also called the other RV park on the lake and they said we could park in their overflow parking for twice the price as we paid at this RV park. One catch is the sewer connection is right next to the water and electric so our trailer hookup would not reach. There is no shade so it can get very hot, but then again you are so close to the lake you can take a dip. Most people we encountered here spoke Russian which made for an interesting stay. We enjoyed camping here.

This is a nice state parrk right along Highway 97 but far enough back from the road that we did not hear any road noise. Our site (B3) has a view of the Williamson River out the back of the trailer. The logging museum is an easy half mile walk from the campground which we did multiple times on our stay. The sites are full hookups which is really nice to have. The bathrooms were nice and clean. The hiking trails are great. Some of the sites are pretty tight for bigger rigs to get into. There are many trees and some are somewhat close to the road so certain angles on certain rigs will make parking a challenge but possible. Our kids (and dog) loved having the wildlife around. The museum trail was fun to walk through and see all the old time equipment and cabins. We stayed here in June and the mosquitoes were out and active so bring your bug spray!

We were excited to reserve a site right on the river. We were not so excited when we arrived to mud puddles in a gravel/mud site and were told after we paid that the water would be shut off by the city the next day. The best things about this campground are its location to old town and the view of the river. The mud and run down sites were the worst part. There are also run down boat storage buildings basically in the middle of the campground. If you want to be in walking distance to old town, stay here a night or two but if you want a nice campsite there are other county and state parks that are much nicer.

This is a great campground. Most of the sites are nicely seperated by bushes and trees to keep privacy in place. Our kids love exploring the hidden passageways behind the sites. Site 13 has a great view of the jetty and ocean. The park was not crowded while we were there in late April. The beach is about a mile walk or a quick drive. The park host was very friendly and welcoming. We highly recommend this park when staying in Florence. Not really close to town but close enough if you have a car.

Nice quiet park when we were there in late April. The campground hosts were great and made sure we had everything we needed. The RV dump is out of order for an unspecified period of time so they gave us directions to a free dump within 10 miles of the campground. The sites are mostly wooded but some towards the host sites are in a meadow. Out site was a pull-thru on a hill so it took a little leveling. There is a trail to the marina and a nice paved walking trail around the lake to the day use park. Great place to stay if coming from or going to the coast or needing to visit Junction City/Eugene/Corvallis.
