Well it appears our view of this "campground" is much different than the previous posts. First, the entrance of the park is not well marked and leads you to believe that you turn in just past the restaurant on the same side of the road. Well backing out a 40' FW from a small barn area is not fun only to be told the campground is further down the road on the right. Arriving there, we found a very steep slope and sharp right turn to go over to get into the campground. True there are pull throughs, but you had better watch for low hanging trees before pulling out. The sites are gravel? Well somewhat but very rutted, certainly not level. Due to a little rain the ruts were quite deep and after looking for another site, we decided this place was not for us, again having to back out to avoid trees and sharp turn. We have camped all over for 40 years and this was the second worst campground we have ever seen. There is no one on site for the CG. Apparently in order to pay, you have to unhook and go somewhere maybe the restaurant to pay. So much for wanting to stay hooked up for the night. This is a very rustic CG and is certainly not worth more than $15 but if you camp in a tent, pop up, or small trailer, it might be fine although don't think they had bathroom facilities. I really could not believe this was a Bob Evans campground, and kept looking for another one. My impression was there was one for campers when they had farm events, but I don't know, we didn't find it and was not told about it. I would just like to warn anyone with a large FW to avoid this CG like the plague. This campground is not really convenient to interstate and since there are hardly any campgrounds in this area, one is certainly needed. Too bad they don't take advantage of this and make this a destination CG. I would never go back there again and am surprised that Bob Evans' name is even on it.

This is a good park for an overnight or couple of days stay. Office staff was very helpful. Campsites are very close together and you cannot pull thru and step out on the small concrete pad. I don't know what they were thinking when it was laid out. We have stayed here several times and like the proximity to the interstate and to Louisville, KY. It is not a resort , but neat and very convenient. We would stay here again.

We attempted to camp here on 10/9/13 but due to the very sloped, steep road entrance we were unable to do so. In fact, the road drops off so severely that our rv hit the back bed of the truck. We had to back up on the main road to keep from damaging our truck or trailer even more. We were headed west to turn on the road to the right when this happened. I had read that the entrance had been repaired at the railroad tracks thinking that was the problem but it is the extreme drop of the road before the tracks that causes the problem. I would never recommend anyone try to make this turn with a long rv. Therefore I can't comment on the campground as we never got down their road.

This a a lovely campground, well maintained and very friendly staff. Had great WiFi service, a well stocked store and good playground for children. Be sure to check the directions when getting off interstate because it looks like you are getting back on the interstate, but the road is a service road as well as the ramp to the interstate. Could use a few road signs at the ramp/road area to help get to the campground. This is a very nice campground for overnight or longer, and would definitely stay here again.

This is a very lovely park with nice paved pads and patios, and for more money a very nice site with patio furniture and large patio area. We chose the cheaper sites as we were not going to be spending much time at the campsite. The lady in the office was very friendly and helpful. WiFi worked pretty well. After looking at several other parks in the area, we were so glad we chose this one. It is very convenient to I-64, Colonial Williamsburg, Jonestown, Yorktown, Virginia Beach and Chesapeake Bay Bridge. It is a great overnight or longer park. The bathhouses are some of the best we have ever seen. Very nice and clean. This is not an RV resort but a very nice park to visit. We would definitely stay here again.

We camped here with an RV rally for a week so rates reflects the rally rate. There are several RV parking sites and we were in the 300 area backed up to the train tracks. Believe me train business is alive and well. At least they waited to round a bend before blowing their horn every time they flew by, which was just about every few minutes. You can get used to them quickly, just can't talk or hear the TV over them. Some sites require extra sewer, electrical or water connections. There was a Mennonite Relief sale during the week we were here, and there were thousands of cars and people. The big attraction was the quilt auction. The grounds in the park are beautiful with lovely areas of flowers and shrubs, very well taken care of and also a good place to ride bicycles. A great place to stay to tour all the area around Goshen, Indiana. Would definitely stay here again. A wonderful place for a rally group.

This is a lovely state park campground and although there were no amenities, only power, it is a very popular place. There are wonderful bicycle paths and trails and very large campsites. It was very cool while we were here, since we were trying to conserve our water supply, I tried out the showers. At first I had hot water, but within a few minutes it was cold. All the windows were left open all day and night so it was freezing in the bath house. It is a very family friendly campground and was almost full when we arrived. Since it is close to Notre Dame, you may need to have reservations on a ball game weekend. The grounds are well kept and we saw several turkeys during our stay. I would definitely stay here again if visiting the South Bend, Indiana area.

This is a very small campground in Beckley, WV and a good place for overnight or several day stay. The attendants on duty at 5:30 pm were very nice and helpful. The only drawback in my opinion is the very, very steep hill to come up and back down when you leave. Make sure you call ahead to find out how to enter the campground as it is near impossible for a large rig to make a right turn into the cg road, which is not very well marked. You have to go to the daytime office which is at the Beckley Mine to pay in the daytime and to turn around so you can enter from the left. The Beckley Exhibition Mine is a must see and do. Very well displayed and a great underground tour of the now closed coal mine. Lots of information about what coal miners dealt with and how they lived. Very informative. There are very few campgrounds in this area and we were lucky to find this little gem in most respects. We would stay here again.

Although this is not an RV resort, it is a nice campground for overnight, or several days. The staff was very friendly and helpful. While you are parking on gravel and the power, water and sewer were sort of scattered around, we enjoyed staying here. They had an ice cream social around 1 pm, a bingo game at 3 pm and a very good blue grass band at 8 pm. Seems like it is a popular park as there were many campers here. WiFi was excelent at the office or pavillon. Laundry room was good and clean. We would stay at this campground again.

Don't remember the exact site fee, but office staff was helpful and friendly. Great location for touring the beautiful little village of Frankenmuth. Roads are a little winding for larger rigs. We were not under any trees so was great for satellite receptions. Office needs to tell people when they check in, that there is a charge of $.25 for 4 minutes to take a shower as bathhouses are not close to all campsites. This is a good campground while touring the area.

We stayed in this park while touring upper parts of Michigan. This is basically an Airstream Park and most of the nicest part of the park was filled with Airstreams, with prices in the $50's for full hookups. We were put on the very back row: in the back 40, w/e and absolutely no shade anywhere, and it was hot. The bathhouses for this large, must be new section, was 2 porti-potties, with bathhouse much further away. Bathhouses were fair, nothing special. It looks like after a few years the small 4' trees will be nice. Sites were gravel as well roads in this back section and very dusty. Would be nice to stay in if in the front section. Wi-Fi was iffy and available outside at times. Could not get Wi-Fi on IPad. Good place for an overnight or so.

This is a nice little park conveniently located off I-65. Nice shaded pull through, very nice staff in office, well stocked campstore, nice pool. Bathrooms were spotless. Great place to overnight or stay a few days. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a good park for touring the upper Michigan area although a little pricy. We chose this park over the other campground because it has sewer hookups and we were staying several days. We were in the area across from Lake Huron but not the water view. This is a very large campground with lots of twists and turns. Bathhouses are few and far between for size of campground. Nice campstore, pool, and play area for children. Nice wooded sites for tents. They were putting campers on every other site in our area which was great, would be very close if an RV was on every site. Wi-Fi is $2 per day and was often difficult to sign on, and if you turned off computer you had to sign on again. Never could get Wi-Fi on IPad2. Some of roads are gravel/dirt and were very dusty. There is a very lovely view of Lake Huron and Mackinac Bridge. All in all we would stay here again.

This is an older park with very nice new owners. We were given one site that hookups were so far back behind RV, we couldn't connect to them, so asked to move to another and they said it was fine. Seems to be a lot of permanents down in one area, but all seemed to keep up their sites. Nice pool and pavilion. I don't use bathhouses but husband does. First night, no hot water, second night good, but bathhouses have no air conditioning and were very hot. We stayed here in order to tour the Air Force Museum. Fairly convenient for the money. Really think new owners are working constantly to improve the park. Would stay here again.

This is a great overnight or longer campground. Office staff was great and very helpful. Good level sites, lovely landscaping but very little shade, obviously puts much care into the campground. Bathrooms were about average. A very convenient park off I-65. Would definitely stay here again.

We arrived at this campground and were bombarded by hordes of gnats. You could not stay outside and had to hurry to get inside your camper or car. I tried to get on Wi-Fi while we were taking breaks from the gnats while trying to get set up. Had trouble signing, was told we were not close to tower, we asked if we could move closer to tower since there were only 5 or 6 campers there and was told no. We wondered if that was because we were Passport America users. We were also backed up to a pond that appeared to be stagnant and thought that might be making the gnats worse. We did find out that the area is the capital of gnat country during hot weather. I cannot rate this park as others have and not due to the gnats. it is basically gravel pull throughs in a pasture, no working advertised Wi-Fi, bathrooms barely adequate, lost power several times on pole with only AC and microwave on. There is a good sized clubhouse but was unusable due to storing junk. This park is certainly not worth their regular nightly price. It is convenient to Americus and Plains, Ga, the hometown of President Jimmy Carter. I would only use this as an overnight park and would not want to stay for extended time. The lady at the 27 hole golf course was very nice and the golf course was quite good for the price.

Paradise Oaks is a wonderful RV resort and has all the amenities anyone could want. I gave this park a 9 only because it is still in the building stage, but they are constantly working on making this one of the nicest resorts around. We camped for a week and paid the weekly rate for summer which was very reasonable. The pool and hot tub were perfect. There are many areas where you can play cards, do crafts, play pool, or sit and talk and there is a beautiful huge clubhouse, workout room, and kitchens. There was no area that was not perfectly clean. Bathrooms and showers were very nice and spotless. The campground is across the street from railroad tracks, but they did not bother us at all and we were fairly close to them. I highly rate this campground as one of the best and would look forward to staying there anytime. The small par 3 golf course surrounding the park still needs a lot of work before you can really play golf there, but from the looks of it they will make sure it is done right. Looks like a great place to spend the winter season.
