This campground is designed as a old-folks place. It is clean, appears to have lots of activities for anyone wanting to participate. It is near shopping of all kinds. It feels like a camper parking lot. Our site was difficult to get into and is very close to the next campers. Sarasota is a lovely area of Florida and I would like to spend more time in this area but would probably try another campground.
This is a very friendly campground and the manager, is terrific. The sites are extremely close together, it's basically a trashy looking campground, extremely difficult to access the highway or move in and out of the campground. We very much enjoyed the other campers and the view of the water. It is not a place I will be running back to but if in the area, I would not have a problem staying there again.
At first glance I would normally give a much lower rate because it appears as a RV parking lot with many long-term 'winter' residences. The sites are relatively level, the campground is clean, and best of all, everyone is friendly...even to my dog. The location is great for multiple baseball games and mid-stop to going further south. They provide good cable and internet service, along with various games and pool for all ages. I would camp here again.
This campground is fine for overnight stay but it looks a run-down and the sites are soft dirt. The office personnel are nice. The best aspect of this campground is all the camper sites are pull-throughs.
This is the cleanest campground with wonderful service of access to the beach. Our backing-in difficulty is solved with the help of the Rangers. This campground is great for biking for adults or children with a lot of playground equipment and areas. We had family in four of the cabins which were excellent and spotlessly clean, also. We have been here several years, and I am beginning to see wear on the concrete sites and roads.
We have voted this campground the best of all the campgrounds we have visited during the last seven years. It only has a few pull-through sites but the Parks Department people will help guide you into any site. The tram runs every hour on the hour to the beach and back but is only 7/8 of a mile to walk down to the beach; coming back is little tougher since it is a slight incline. This is a wonderful place for bikes for adults or children and bikes are available to rent $18 for all day. It is always clean, cable works great, trash bins are nearby and all the sites are concrete.
Great over-night location between Houston, TX and Florida. We've stayed here before and it maintained a clean, neat appearance, friendly, and helpful in all aspects. Plenty of pull-through site and all sites are concrete. Easy access off I-12 and the office supplies perfect location information. We'll stay here again.
Campground staff is friendly, but they do not have someone available to help with backing into a site so we requested and received a pull-through which was in a wetter section of the grounds. There had been so much rain prior to our stay and while staying, the grass was in need of attention but certainly no fault of theirs. No trash pick up, but trash containers were conventiently located. Sites are paved but rather narrow especially if the ground is saturated and you do not wish to wade in water/mud ankle deep. Nice amount shade available at sites. Convenient to various attractions.
This is an amazing campground serviced by a farm down the road. It has wonderful waterfalls and ponds with yard art. There is a horse track nearby with track participants in the campground. Owners are very friendly and helpful. It is a little crowded with lots of long-term campers. I would stay here again.
KOA offers an expected quality and this KOA did not have quality. The staff was very friendly. Granted, this is the beginning of the season but the grass was not cut, much of the facility needed a coat of paint, the sites were not level, and the entire campground had worn-down gravel. It is convenient to the shuttle service to Mackinac Island. The plus is the dog kennel nearby for trips to the island.
We rated this a 10 but it should be rated a 12. It is outstanding, beautiful, clean, friendly, and close to shopping and eateries. There is plenty of playground equipment, a fishing lake, and paddle boats, It is quiet with lots of pull-through sites. It's all around excellent. I really appreciated the other ratings since it helped me to find this wonderful campground.
We camped here to attend University of Illinois graduation ceremony and found it excellent. Clean, easy access to the University and grocery shopping. The staff is friendly and helpful. The other campers were very friendly, too. Plenty of area to walk around for exercise. Very enjoyable.
We camped in T10, and except for slight need to level, it was perfect. The park is beautiful and well maintained. Campsites large and terraced with lots of shade. We really enjoyed all the available activities.
This is an outstanding over-night or several days location. It is not a resort-styled place. Front desk/manager, is the sweetest person and she works hard to keep all her tenants happy. We visit here frequently to see family in the area. It appeared some upgrades are being handled in the park.
The young ladies managing the park were nice. The park was in poor repair; street had huge holes; tight curves; signs were worn; in general it looked run-down. Stray cats were numerous and bothersome. A good 20-30 minutes to downtown Savannah. Only one dryer was operational. In general, I did not like this campground.
This is a delightful place with well maintained natural landscaping. There is a pool, volleyball, basketball, and plenty of space to maneuver. The site needed a small amount of help in making the camper level, but nothing not expected with gravel sites. This is a very clean campground and the staff is wonderful. I would most certainly stay here again when in the area.
Forestry site with plenty of shade. The State Forest Rangers were the best. They were always available to help or provide information. The campground has no pool or boat rental. It is very well maintained and a location I would be willing to enjoy again.
Extremely clean and well organized; no shade trees but each site had excellent landscaping. All sites are pull-throughs with plenty of space between sites. All necessary help is available. There are a lot of full-timers, but the campground does not give the typical appearance of full-timers. The owner is always present and helpful. The campground is growing with level, smooth sites.
This is an outstanding park. It is extremely clean, well organized with all pull-through sites. It is wonderful for a night or two stop-over but I would not pick it for a 'vacation-location'. There are no trees and limited grass access. It does not offer that 'camping-type' feeling one expects for an extended stay. We would certainly stop here again whenever in the general area.
A GREAT campground with a terrific staff. The campground is clean and well maintained with beautiful landscaping throughout. Our site was perfect for us and our dog. Biking would be wonderful here but walking distance is not far to anything of interest. Trams are provided to and from the beach, book exchange inside the camp store with small snacks, magnets, t-shirts, etc. We really enjoyed our time at Topsail plus the nearby town is neat, with plenty of upscale shops. Great for children or retired people.
The camp host was terrific and even though pets are allowed, we found most areas pets could use were covered with sand spurs. We were on a completely concrete location directly in front of the comfort station. I was less than happy with this campground.
We stayed here twice within about 10 days for three days each time. Nice people, clean park and willing to make a camper happy. Easy in and easy out. It is not the prettiest park I've ever stayed in but certainly the nicest. I think it is great.
Good central location for seeing all of Yellowstone. The electric is out of service this year and it was very, very cold late at night and early morning. It was snowing on our arrival and hail during our week was visible. The sites were very difficult to maneuver since the restrictions for car locations off their limited grass are strict. There is no help in locating or parking at site. Even with my negative comments, our Yellowstone experience was worth all the discomfort.
Totally agree with previous reviewer. Directions were right on. Easy registration, escorted to site. Campground has lots of pines, juniper trees and a wildflower garden and swing. Sites have trees as to provide sufficient privacy and are reasonably level. Hookups are easy. Staff is great. We would stay here again.
OK for an overnight stay at best...if you are desperate! KOA needs to come to terms with what campers expect...something as basic as trees and grass. This was not even what I would consider camping since the expected atmosphere was sorely lacking. Internet connection was not working during the time we were in this location. Office staff was nice and did the best they could given the limitations.
I agree with the previous reviewer, this was the worst RV "park" we have ever stayed in. It is actually more like an RV storage facility or worse. Very difficult to move around here in our 5th wheel 30'. All concrete, no trees, no grass. There were many permanents in residence. I will never park here again: it is horrible!
This campground has terrific views away from the road. The campground is small but supplies sufficient space between units. The owners are very pleasant people which made our stay very enjoyable. This is located less than a day from Yellowstone and there are sufficient things to see in this area. If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely stay at Twin Pines RV Park.
Mountaindale was a beautifully wooded campground. Meticulously maintained with wide pull-through sites, nicely graded in brick colored rock chips. Very helpful and friendly owner and staff. Open, spacious, secure dog play area. Store supplied with adequate needs. The family center room has a big-screen TV, big kitchen, large meeting room and internet room. Hot tub was also available. This is one of the best campgrounds we have ever visited.
We found management to be fine. The sites are very close to each other. This is fine for parking over night or two in order to see the canyon which is nearby and worth the stay. It is not a great campground, but it not the worst we ever stayed in overnight. No TV and the electricity can be a little iffy at times. I doubt we will stay here again since the campground offers nothing except being near to the canyon.
There is still considerable construction being handled as they finish this park. No cable TV and no swimming pool, but a sandy beach is available. The lake view is wonderful and across the lake is housing for sail and motor boats. Also, across the lake is a huge baseball, softball and soccer facility. Lots to do in the towns of Grapevine and Fort Worth. This is a very pretty campground and the staff was full of valuable information. We will be back in the future.
I agree in part with some of the other comments. Camping is such an individual enjoyment . The road sounds were no problem for us. Since we were running the air conditioning almost all the time, we didn't even hear it. The back site was perfect for us because it gave our dog more area to investigate without bothering others. I found the office staff very nice and the grounds could not be cleaner. The many trees provided havens for birds and shade for the campers. We were here for the softball tournament which was only one mile away. All the 'city' entertainment was within a very few miles with a large shopping center a short distance. I would stay here again if ever in Oklahoma City.
This is a really nice campground. They do not allow you to request a particular site in the campground to park even if the park is not full! Apparently, they are booked solid through the summer and project an attitude of needing to cooperate with their patrons.
The campground was in need of repairs - roads are rough, dump stations was not working and there are lots of long-time "residents". We were fortunate to camp next to a long-term couple who had bird feeds directly outside our windows. It was delightful to watch the various birds feed at our neighbor's location. The trees need to be trimmed because one ripped the top of our camper as we were leaving the site.
The park was very, very large very much like a drive-in motel for campers. There were no trees and it was simply a vast open/concrete park. It worked well for one over-night stay with no adventure to anticipate.
The staff were most accommodating, helpful and friendly. We were parked directly across from a pond which was home to various types of birds. The grounds were very clean and the other campers, as usual, were very friendly. We will definitely enjoy returning to this location
This campground is immaculate, beautifully manicured grounds, all pull-through sites, towering shade trees throughout, friendly and extremely helpful campground management, conveniently located off I-10 and our favorite RV park thus far. Diesel fuel near entrance with public shopping and hospital/medical care nearby. We will definitely return to this location.
