We could not get a site at Prince Gallitzin State Park, so we opted to stop here and see if they had any sites available. The staff was very welcoming and provided us with a choice of some spots to park with 30 amp service. There are several places to dry-camp and they have potable water and a dump station in the park. The camp ground has mostly year-round residents and a few park models, but was close to a small ice cream stand, mini-golf and pizza shop as well as a horse riding stable. The sites are wooded and other campers that we met were very friendly. It's not fancy, but will do in a pinch!
Easy to access off I-75. Small campground with narrow sites. 30A power was poor- melted prong on power cord. We camped here as part of a large group. They were very accommodating to our needs in that campfire wood was provided and we had full use of the clubhouse. WiFi was not available during most of our stay. Park is absentee-owned with temporary "work-campers" on staff. They were very polite and treated us well. We will probably stay here again, but caution that the owners don't seem willing to spend anything on improvements and the conditions will most certainly deteriorate.
Difficult to maneuver into sites with a 40' Motorhome and tow car. Had expected to be in an RV Resort, but this appears to be a long-term trailer park for local industrial workers. Several of the units appeared to have been parked for some time and appear to be populated on a full-time basis. Staff was very friendly and marked our site with an orange cone and welcome sign- a very nice touch! We had a paved, level site that easily accommodated our motorhome, but left little room for the tow car and there were no picnic tables or pads for tables. We could not open our awning due to the small size of our space. There are very few "pull-thru" sites, most are back-in. 50 Amp service was not available to us due to the awkward location of the power. The park is in a residential area and can be a little hard to find late at night. It is about 2 miles from the boardwalk and shopping areas.
We parked here 2 nights in January of 2008. Extremely friendly staff, easy access to I-10, and close to La Mesilla shopping/dining area, Wal Mart, and grocery store. Packed gravel sites were level, very clean and freshly swept after each departure. We were guided to our site by an escort upon check-in. Free breakfast was provided in clubhouse each morning. Our only complaint was that the hose connections were frozen due to temps in the mid-teens. We could not fill up with fresh water on the day of departure.
We found our site to be adequate, but not level. Access is difficult and not well-marked from the I-10 interchange. The premises were well-kept and each site had a metal patio table and chairs with a concrete pad. For the $$, we would expect to have paved RV pads as well. WiFi access was fast and reliable, but you have to log in each time that you access the service.
Campground was easily accessed from I-95. Staff was friendly, check in was fast. Price seemed a little high for a one night stay- but the park was very clean. Sites were wide, level and many were shaded. WiFi service was excellent and fast. CATV signal was very poor. I would stay here again, but only with a discount.
Camped here as part of a large group. Original price per night was $15, but the management increased it to $20 once they saw how many of us arrived. What a scam! Otherwise, park had many shaded sites, some were not very level and my hydraulic levelers were extended to their max on one side to make the coach level. Free WiFi was extremely poor, I had better luck with my own EVDO connection. Clubhouse was clean and well-kept. Park is easily accessed off I-75. We will not camp here again due to the changing price-per-night issue.
Cranky owner- seems to know that they are the only game in town and you have to "deal with it". We spent 2 nights here and hated it. Will never go back. Laundry facilities were out of order for three days, sites have staggered utilties, so half the campers park head-in in to access utilities with long hoses and electric cords. Water pressure was very, very poor, had to fill tank at night so that we had pressure-assist during the day. Voltage was also low- 90-95 volts in evenings. Not enough to run A/C units or water heater. Rules, rules, rules posted everywhere.
Nice park, friendly management. Bath houses were adequate: showers cost 25 cents for 3 mins. Water and 50AMP electric were clean: no problems with voltage or tripping breakers. Access to coastal Maine towns was terrific. Very quiet campground, not much activity for children. Campfires permitted in metal rings. sites relatively level with thick, green grass. Easily accommodates a 40' motorhome. Best sites were #'s 36 through 40 which had unobstructed view of the river. Would definitely go back again.
We camped here in a 40' motorhome during August, 2005. Sites were packed gravel/sand and relatively level. Received 10% discount for AAA and cash payment. Convenient to Mystic/Groton and all attractions. 50 A power was clean and reliable. Had no problem running all three A/C units, ice maker, etc. No sewer at sites was one drawback, although dump station was easy to access. The biggest draw for us was proximity to attractions and this place filled the bill.
Stayed here in a 40' motorhome during August 2006. Access to camp was difficult from interstates due to winding back roads through the pine barrens. Not very convenient to Plymouth, but a decent campground nonetheless. We had problems with 50A service breaker tripping and called management to look at service. Seemed to operate OK the rest of the evening, but I did not feel comfortable running all 3 air units. Did not have kids along, so not sure about activities for youth. Transient sites are out in open. Wooded sites are taken by year-round types, who did not make too much noise for us to get a good night's rest. If we were to visit the area again, we would probably look for something closer to town.
Great location- view of channel, but not the ocean due to sand dune and public parking lot. Tightly packed campground. Do not try to get a space here on a Friday or Saturday. Locals said best time to arrive is on a Wednesday. We camped in a 40' Bluebird and had to ask a few patrons to move their vehicles so that we could squeeze in. No reservations are available here.
Check-in staff was very friendly and outgoing and knowledgeable. I was able to enter the grounds a few times without a guard present at the security gate, but normally a guard checks all vehicles. Ocean front sites are well-worth the extra $$. This was one of the few campgrounds that I have visited where the transient sites were better than year-round resident sites. Only drawback with ocean front sites was a lack of trees/shade - but each site has a covered picnic table shelter. Sites were wide, but not paved. Beach was beautiful! We will go back again.
Staff was friendly, no problems encountered like in previous posts. Gave 10% discount for cash payment. We only stayed 1 night on our way south in Dec. 2005. Hookups were adequate, but no breakers on 50A plug and outlet cover was missing (possible electrocution hazard in wet weather) Park was quiet with some year-round guests. Easy to enter with a big rig and tow vehicle. Exiting the park was difficult due to wide U-turn getting back towards I-95. Park was about 25 mins from downtown Savannah.
Desk staff friendly, knowledgeable. Many pull-through sites convenient for Big-Rigs. Internet available for a fee. Downtown Miami was a good hour's drive away and park is closer to Homestead. Close to Everglades NP and Monkey Jungle. Pool was very well-kept. Sites were grass and may be very soft during wet season. Nightly rate seemed a bit high given the remote location of the park and lack of paved sites.
A tight squeeze with a 40' pusher, but a very nice property. Book early, this place is in high demand. Neighborhood surrounding camp is poor but camp is surrounded by high fence. Security is excellent. All cars checked coming and going by full-time guard. Desk help very friendly. Washers, dryers, pool all clean. Water front sites are wonderful, if you can get one. Seemed a bit pricey- 128.23 per night with 4 adults, but there is no other option this close to Key West.
