The rate is a Passport rate. This park has nice concrete pads, a river, a bike/walking path & beautiful trees in bloom. The WiFi did not work. You have to use a special cable box to get cable but that did not work. My Verizon Mi-Fi & Sprint phone did work well. The biggest problem for us was the relentless traffic noise. You could not speak to people outside without yelling. Inside with everything closed up, the traffic was still loud and only died down between around 1am to 6am. It was a little difficult getting the scoop on getting into the park as well. Don't try to do the right turn into the park from the off ramp. You have to go 50 yds further and pull into the repair shop lot which is where the office is and register. Then there is a pull around when you make a left that will get you into the park. The trail that goes through the park has heavy use by locals, so there is always people walking by from outside the park. I would not stay here again unless the city built sound barrier walls to drown out the highway noise. It was Really loud and continuous.

Stayed 3 nights with Passport. The train runs right behind the park and does blow its horn when it comes through. Not a consistent schedule. It was a nuisance to me the 1st two nights then not so many the next two. Sites are dirt & grass. It rained 1.3 inches and the sites in the lower section where we were literally turned into a lake! Stepped out on my mat into a 3/4 inch of water. 2 days later it had not fully receded. Lots of people in boots trying to unhook or just get to their car. The park is very peaceful with lots of birds singing when the trains aren't coming through. Was able to get several TV stations over the air. WiFi was in & out. Not far from the Plantations and an a easy drive into Charleston.

I only give this park a 6 because the people were exceptionally nice. Probably the nicest camp workers I have run into in the last 2 years. The park itself was muddy, the sites were very close together, and the Charter cable box that you have to use to get the cable was a real pain to get set-up. They do have a nice lunch deal here with a buffet for around $10. They do get a 10 for hospitality though, and that's the only reason I would say its an okay stopover for a night to see Jekyll island.

This park is clearly unfinished. Its seems as though they laid out the utilities in the park, paved the roads, and were gonna pave the sites but never got that far. So you have to drive over the curbs to get in and out of your sites, which is a bit unusual. The sites or sort of a pea gravel/ sand type but of decent size and our site was fairly level. Although there are cable connectors on all sites, apparently only some sites have cable available and you have to pay extra for it. I did get a couple channels over the air. The water hookups were extremely low, so it you could not add a filter without an extension. Even adding an extension was kind of tight. There was some slight traffic noise but for the most part it was very peaceful here. Nice little lake and nice trails nearby plus easy access to Savannah, Hilton Head or Beaufort. Staff was friendly. The park has a lot of potential. We would stay here again for a few days & longer if they actually finish the sites out.

Very nice, large level sites with a picnic table. I only saw 30 amp electric but it was fine for our 3 night stay. A lot of trails, with some bird feeding sites and very peaceful surroundings. No planes, trains, or automobiles. My Sprint phone & Verizon Mi-Fi did work here though it was not an exceptionally strong signal. The office people and hosts were very helpful & friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

Nice concrete pads with a concrete little table & bench. My cable was a little fuzzy but worked. The WiFi worked okay. Seemed to be several long-term sites there, but they were friendly and the sites were clean. There was road noise but not super awful. The airport traffic not that bad either. Nice for an overnight. Staff was friendly.

This park only has about 6 sites that are on concrete pads. Everything else is grass or dirt. Rained 4" while here and everything was muddy & flooded on the grass sites. Not sure if that is a typical rainfall at one time or not but the park grounds were rutted and a rig even had to be pulled out. They did work pretty quickly to try and level out the ruts. There is road noise but it was tolerable. The WiFi did not work very well but my Verizon MiFi and Sprint phone worked fine here. Close to the hwy and doable for an overnight or 2 to see St. Augustine but not a destination park.

The park itself is very nice with many walking trails, a dog park, fishing lakes, and more. The campground section isn't necessarily on par with the rest of the park. The layout is funky and some sites have good spacing, at others the sewer connections are practically under the next rig. Some sites are grass, some sand, and others a shell base that is extremely hard to keep out of a rig. TV reception was great. I was able to pick up around 15 channels over the air. The Wi-Fi was great, probably the best Wi-Fi system in any park I have stayed at. My Verizon MiFi and Sprint phone worked well here. Raccoons broke into my cargo bay here. The park rangers, although they were aware of the problem (the raccoons came back several nights), offered no help in stopping this activity, so beware! That being said I would still stay here again if in the area.

Nice no frills county park with spacious sites. Some back to the water so you can easily launch a kayak from your site. Several TV stations over the air. My Verizon MiFi and Sprint phone worked well here. A couple leveling blocks were required. I would stay here again.

Nice Campground, enjoyed the abundance of wading birds and Sandhills walking around. Could watch them and alligators from my site. Site was level & decent sized. I could only pick up a couple of channels via my antenna. ABC, PBS, and a few religious stations. The Wi-Fi mostly worked great but at other times was frustrating. The train was not a problem at night for me. My Verizon MiFi and Sprint phone worked okay. I would stay here again if in the area. You do have to have $20 in cash for a gate card; they make no exceptions for this.

A little different layout with pull-throughs along the perimeter of the park & back-ins in the center. All of the pull-throughs then open to a grassy spot, which was nice. We stayed in a pull-through, it would have been a little bit of an issue with the person behind me who was in a trailer had he needed to hook up, since I left my car attached. Spacing could be an issue depending on you and your neighbors equipment. The site was perfectly level. The Wi-Fi worked. My Sprint phone & Verizen mifi also worked. Slight amount of traffic noise but nothing major. The back-ins had very nice concrete tables. The pull-throughs had nice picnic tables. No dog park but plenty of room to walk the dog. The manager was friendly and we would stay here again.

I stayed in an overflow site. It was level & had a nice view of the lake. The electric,wifi and cable worked well. The park was very serene day & night. Great setting. The managers were very very friendly. Only issues were that several of the sites don't have sewers, but they do pump out sewers every Thursday. There is no washer available on site. I had quite a few bugs on my rig in the evenings, a neighbor called them midges from the lake that made it difficult to get in & out of the rig without getting them inside the rig. They were gone in the mornings. The water here had a brown tint too it, apparently because of iron, but it didn't seem to effect us, it just looked weird. The managers went out of their way to accommodate us & even helped me hook-up. It was a great stay & we would stay again.

We had a gravel pull-through site that was pretty level. The park came across as a little unkempt because the grass was long in areas but the camp host had just started and said they hadn't had a chance to get to it yet. The cable & WiFi worked well. The park was very quiet. There were 25 mph+ winds when we were there which the host said was typical that time of year. Good for an overnight stay. I would return.

Had a nice space under a shade tree next to a grassy area that friends stayed on the other side of. So it made for a sitting & picnic area. The Casino manager was nice & they give RVers a discount on the restaurant with a card. There were a few trains & a bit of traffic noise at night. I did use ear plugs and it was fine. The casino also gave credits for using the gas station associated with it. You had to take in your receipt to get a credit. They have a little unfenced pet walk area & a trash can for overnighters to use. We would stay here again if in the area.

The price reflects the Passport rate. The staff here was very laid back and friendly from the moment I walked in the office - which set a nice tone for our stay. Our site was all concrete with a little vegetation in between the sites. It appears they have foregone the side by side spacing and are letting folks use both 'sides' which makes for a decent sized site. The site was fairly level and I really didn't hear much road noise, even though I was in the front section nearest to the road. I was able to pick up all the main stations over the air. I did have one issue with the Wi-fi, but my Verizon Mifi worked fine. My Sprint phone also worked well here. There is a little area to walk the dog in the back of the park. I was told I could walk the levee down to the Refuge from there, but did not attempt that. We stayed three nights and would definitely stay again if in the area.

Great location for visiting Monterey and Santa Cruz and the rest of the area, which is very beautiful. The park is very quiet - no planes, trains or automobile problems. The sites are all grass. Sites further from the lake are more level than the ones closer. They are rather closely spaced, but the park only seems to fill up on the weekends. The staff has the longer stay folks spread out so that during the week there is plenty of room between the sites. The Wi-Fi worked better than at any park I have visited. I was able to pick up all the main TV channels over the air with my antenna. My Sprint phone and Verizon Mifi worked well here. This is a city park so there are people around mostly in the evenings till the park closes around 8pm - fishing, playing ball and picnicking. There are little boats available for rent to take out on the lake. We enjoyed people watching, the Little League and nice walks by the lake at sunset. The staff was very friendly and went out of there way to be helpful when I had an emergency. I would definitely return and will recommend this park to others.

Nice concrete slabs with a slight patio area, with some nice little landscaping and trees. Cable and Wi-Fi worked fine. There is traffic noise from 101 and there are lots of kids. It is a mostly permanent resident park. The noise died down at night. My Sprint cell and Verizon MiFi worked well here. The facilities seemed nice and the staff was friendly. I would do a overnight here again, even though I think the nightly rate is a little high for the area.

Nice, no frills, out in the country feel, campground. Fairly long pull-through sites, though rather tight between spaces. Wifi is available but not free. My Verizon mifi & Sprint phone worked well here. No planes, trains, or automobile noise though you can hear the waves from the ocean from a mile away over the sand dunes. The sand dunes were really cool. You have to climb over several to be able to see the ocean, but it is worth it. Staff was very nice and gave places to see in the area. The laundry facilities were a little worn, but they worked. We had problems with a barking dog a couple of days but for the most part loved our stay. It isn't well marked to get here, and I was kind of unsure of where I was going as this is down a road that dead-ends at the park. The park & the horse corral are the only things on the road. You do go over a train track to get there, but I only heard the train a couple of times, and it was only for a short time. There was wind coming off the ocean ever afternoon, but it wasn't bad, just cool. I would definitely stay here again. The dunes are very pretty and ever changing.

Love this park! It is in a beautiful setting, very quiet and relaxing. I don't think there is a bad site, even the undeveloped sites are nicer and give you more space than at most parks. I have have stayed in 2 different sites for a total of 4 months. Cable worked great. My Verizon MiFi was able to get 4G coverage and my Sprint phone had good coverage. The pool areas were nice and the little store very handy. The dog park was a little far with my pup but it is nice. There are places to walk with your dog outside the park as well. Only the small club house had general Wi-Fi available (none park wide). Hopefully they will add that to the large clubhouse to give folks some options to use the internet when there are activities going on in one place or another. Not a lot of activities compared to most seasonal type parks but I found the people friendly and welcoming to the card nights, etc. I had no issues being a renter here as others have mentioned and found all of the owners that I meet to be both nice & welcoming. I found it easier to deal directly with lot owners rather than going through the HOA or Fairway Associates to find a spot.

Nice park with nice lots, decent size and some grass. Lots of things for kids to do with the game room, pool and water play areas. Nice sized dog park and a path to the river from the park make it pet friendly. The Tengo internet worked better here than at any other Tengo park I have been too. The cable worked well. My Verizon MiFi and Sprint phone both had good service. Plenty to see and do in the area and the staff was very helpful & friendly. Seems like they really work hard to make this a top-notch park. Noise was not a problem. The seasonal section of the park has not been renovated as the rest of the park and is not as nice. It has dirt lots that are a bit closer together. The folks here were very friendly and helpful as well. I would return to this park.

The park roads and the turn into my site were rather tight. I had to move a picnic table and be guided past the poles by the electrical & water which sit at the back of the site. Had a few inches between my neighbors awning & my slide. The cable was fuzzy and over 3 days I was only able to access their internet once. The road noise was bothersome as well. On a positive note, the pool area was very nice, the crushed gravel site was level. You do have grass and a picnic table. There are places to walk your dog besides the dog park. There appears lots to do for kids. My Verizon MiFi worked fine, as did my Sprint cell. I would probably not return, I am very noise sensitive and the traffic died down around midnight but was back again very early, plus the cable and internet didn't work well.

Sites are separated by oleander, have a picnic table, and concrete patio which are nice. The camp host and manager were extremely friendly & helpful in giving information about the area and Mexico. The cable worked well. My Sprint cell was roaming and my Verizon card worked well. The park Wi-Fi was extremely slow most of the time, then at other times it worked okay. No dog walk to speak of or other frills such as a pool. The park was quiet at night. I would return to this park if in the area again.

Surprisingly loved this park. It is an older park, with a quirky layout, which is mostly long-term residents. The shade trees were great and our site was level and had both great cable and good Wi-Fi. There was a little bit of traffic noise, but at night we didn't notice it very much at all. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The other residents were also very friendly and very quiet. My Verizon card and Sprint cell phone both worked well here. The location is about 20 minutes from Sedona, 20 from Jerome and 20 from the casino plus close to the grocery stores. Not a lot of frills at this park, no pool or hot tub and the dog walk wasn't really much of a dog walk but the Wi-Fi here works much better than the 'fancy' park over by the casino, so we were happy and would return.

The site was shaded, plenty long, and wide though 50 amp was not available and I had a difficult time getting level. Stayed 3 nights. The Wi-Fi did not work the first two days that I was there. They did have someone working on it on day 2 and it did work fine on Day 3 though I did think they should have at least taken 10% off when I extended for the 3rd day after the Wi-Fi troubles the 1st two days. They did not agree with that assessment. Other than that, the owners were very friendly and tried to be very helpful. My Verizon card worked pretty well and though there was not a dog walk in the park, there is neighboring open space to take them in. I did pick up some TV stations over the air.

The internet worked 'okay' and our Verizon card worked as well. I was able to pick up several channels over the antenna. I did have to use blocks to get level and the sites were rather tight. The sewer connections are set over into the next persons site, almost right where they stepped out their door. The folks next to me were having a party, so I did not put out my sewer for safety concerns. They were basically eating right underneath my slide they were so close! Traffic noise from Rt. 12 was not a problem and while there is no dog park in the park, there is places to walk near the RV park. I thought the price was kind of high for what you got, but the owners were friendly and the area was beautiful. We would stay here again if in the area.

Beautiful views of the reservoir and surrounding mountains. I was here before the fishing season opened but it was very quiet, no road noise or trains. My Sprint phone did work in some places in the rig, my Verizon card did not work. The Wi-Fi was in and out. No over the air TV reception. My site was clean, level and obstacle free. You can see the water from any site. Had an unscheduled stop here because of health reasons. The owner was exceptionally helpful in directing me to medical care and checking on us. Both the staff and owner were very friendly and helpful. We stayed a week and will return. A great place to relax, even if you don't fish.

BLM - OHV Rec area with dispersed free camping. The main road in is paved. Several large staging areas and sites for camping with any size rig though not paved. Sprint phone and Verizon Wi-Fi card worked at the Visitors Ctr lot at Hwy 14 but not in where we camped. Large trucks coming in and out the first 3 - 4 miles of the area but not beyond that. We would stay here again.

Our 50 amp, full hookup, pull through site was level and had a nice concrete patio. We could not pick up the WiFi at this site, but were told in advance which sites could pick up WiFi, and which could not. No TV stations over the antenna and no cable TV available. Verizon WiFi card worked well, but our Sprint phone did not. Sometimes you would have a signal and sometimes not. Nice desert in bloom behind us and dirt roads to walk the dog on. Large capacity dryer available. We would be okay staying here again if need be.

Stayed in a level all dirt pull-through spot with a picnic table in the back part of the park. Only 30 amp electric was available, and no sewer. The cable was limited but worked great, there was an extra $2 charge for it. Small desert area to walk the dog in behind the park, had a lot of debris in it though. The park was quiet and every staff member I spoke with was very nice. The WiFi only worked 1 of the 3 days we were here, at our site but our Verizen wireless card worked fine. We will use this park again when in the area.
