We had a reservation for area 4, but the site had too much grade and we could not level. We were able to move into area 2 where there was 1 site that worked for us. Sites really vary as far as being level. The site descriptions are not the best. You really need to know the sites here. As reviewed, this is a somewhat dated park, but the location is great. Verizon broadband and TV via bat wing were both good.

Our second stay at this nice quiet park. We were in early with the volunteers who clean the campground before the official opening. There have been some improvements since our last stay. The only real downfall here are the bath house which could use an upgrade. But being full time we use our own. TV via batwing is fair, Verizon cell and broadband very good.

Paid the Good Sam rate of $29.70 for a 10% discount off the normal $33 nightly rate. Park is close to I-81 but not too close. It is just after the long northbound climb on I-81. There are grades, but we had no problems in our 36' wide body towing. I would not recommend anything longer than 39' or towing a large trailer. As reviewed, the sites are all cut in to the side hill; they did a pretty good job and sites are fairly level. Good solid gravel base topped with 3/4" stone so I can see where it could be dusty at times. It was OK during our stay. We had site 31 a 30 amp full hookup site, and we were able to leave our toad hooked up on a tow dolly. TV via batwing was fair, we picked up 6 stations including ABC and CBS. Verizon cell and broadband were both very good.

Rate is based on Passport America but certainly not half price. The discount is $16.25 off a regular site which makes it about half price off of a premium site which you do not get. $1 surcharge for credit cards. That would be OK except the WiFi was not usable, strong signal but 'no internet access'. I even tried at 5:30 am the next day. Cable also was worthless. We used our antenna instead as the cable did not have NBC (or anything else that was worth watching). If you need to use the laundry then it is a good stop. But we will probably save our $22 and use a rest area or Walmart next time. Overall it is a nice place, but they need to keep things working better.

Rate includes $5 Passport America discount. They game the system here. They post a nightly rate of $50, but then $30 a night for just about everyone, AAA, Good Sam, Military, Seniors, etc. So the real rate is really $30. But it is a good location for visiting Savannah so it is not a bad value. Good utilities and very strong usable WiFi which was a plus. Could use a little TLC on the grounds as it is a bit rough around the edges here.

Rate based on a winter stay. This place remains a Daytona best bet for an RV site. They are having problems with the WiFi though. But Verizon broadband was very good. Overall a great place to spend some time.

Paid group rate for a FHU, somewhat level, grass site. Site was very large and mostly level, but the sites do have uneven spots. But we had no problem leveling. Very nice Rally facilities. It is a common area so you get folks walking in on your group. Cable lineup is 11 channels. WiFi is $5 a day, $10 for 3 days, $15 per week, etc. We did not use it as our Verizon broadband was very good. The big downside here is the full time people in the park models that line this part of the park. To them, the grass sites is the dog walk and they walk (and drive golf carts) right thru occupied sites. Food was fair at best at the on site Eagles Nest.

Paid FL Senior rate which made for a great value. We had a nice big level 50 amp FHU site. The sites in this section are all pea stone. We had no trouble with the check in process. We saw camp hosts treating the ant mounds. I wish more places would do the same. TV via batwing was very good. Verizon cell and broadband were also very good. Overall we had a great stay.

Paid FL Senior rate which made for a great value in the keys. We had a nice wide and level 50 amp site with water. Sites vary in size quite a bit here and no sewer sites are available. Traffic noise is not as bad as some reviews indicate. It gets pretty quiet late at night and we could hear the ocean. No TV reception, but Verizon cell and broadband were both very good. For great happy hour prices and food specials try Springer's on Big Pine Key. It is the best bet around and they have the NFL package and great people there.

Paid Florida Senior rate which makes for a great value. Sites here vary and are on the tight side but all are fairly level. Electric and sewer hookups were both close, but the water was a shared hookup and on the curb side. We used one hose, but it just reached. TV via batwing was fair, we picked up two networks and a couple of others. But the signal would fade during daylight hours. Verizon cell and broadband both very good.

Passport rate of $18 plus $1.98 tax for a 50 amp full hook-up pull thru site with cable. We had a nice long, level, packed gravel site with a small concrete patio and picnic table. Sites were very close together, but ok for an overnight stay. We were unable to access the Wi-Fi, but our Verizon broadband was very good.

Florida Senior rate of $15.00 plus tax for a 50 amp full hook up back in site. The site was crushed stone and level. There are two camping loops here, one with full hookups and the other with electric and water only. All sites are level here, so I'm not sure about an earlier review stating other wise. The electric and water loop sites tend to be smaller, but much more private with lots of foliage between them. There are a few in that loop that back up to water and are very nice. TV via batwing was pretty good, Verizon cell and broadband both very good. Right around the corner on CR 283 is the Hurricane Oyster Bar which has daily happy hour and specials from 3 - 6 every day. Very good specials there and close by.

Good value with Passport America. We paid $16.20 after tax for a 30 amp full hook up pull thru with a very good cable lineup. There is a very excessive $5 surcharge for 50 amp service, we used our 30 amp plug instead. The site was packed stone and level. As mentioned in an earlier review, we also had a lot of ants. So it might be wise to use some ant dust before setting up. The Wi-Fi was very good during our stay and they have a nice library. We were pleasantly surprised as we were not expecting much. However, this is not a very good area of Montgomery. We drove about 15 miles east on US-80 looking for a place to have a drink. We could not get over the amount of closed businesses that we passed. But we did find a place about 7.5 miles east of the park just past the 'Auto Mile' and across the street from the Home Depot. It is owned by a former Miami Dolphins player Baumhower who is from this area and also played for the Crimson Tide.

We paid the senior rate of $20.70 per night for a 50 amp full hook up crushed stone / gravel pull thru site. The site was fairly level, there was a slight drop off as you first pull in and then the site flatten out nicely. Sewer was right there, but the electric and water were to the back of the site. No problems hooking up, but we did use two water hoses. We did not see a cable connection at our site. TV via batwing and Verizon cell and broadband were very good. The Park's Wi-Fi was also very good. Overall a nice municipal campground and we would stop again when in the area.

$10 is the Senior rate for a nice long level back in site with 50 amps and water. We found the Host's to be very friendly and helpful. This CG is on a side hill slope along the lake and you really need to know your sites here if your in a MH. Sites on the outside of the loop are all odd numbered and sites inside the loop are even numbered. Most sites here start with a moderate to sharp grade and then a somewhat level pad area. This area varied in size making site selection important. We had site 51 which was one of the more level sites. Other sites more suitable for MH's are 1, 4, 10, 12. 14. 16, 43, 45, 47(ADA), 48, 49, 50, 52 and 53. There are other sites that will also work, but most were occupied making it difficult to judge. Small units and trailers have no issues here. TV via batwing and Verizon cell and broadband were both very good.

The $25 paid is an off season group rate. We were here with over 100 other MH's for a Rally. This is a very large campground and the areas vary quite a bit. The front is better than the back. We were in the very back area and the pull thrus have shared hookups. We had a stone 50 amp full hook up pull thru site. The stone was mostly 3/4" but with a lot of larger stones in the 3" to 4" range included. A real rough surface that was very hard on the feet and you can easily twist an ankle here. The adjoining site faces in the opposite direction. The water has a tee on top with two shutoffs. The electric was one post with outlets on both sides and the sewer connections are a couple inches apart. Not a lot of room between sites, we were really packed in. We had no over the air TV. The Wi-Fi was off and on and always slow to the point of being unusable. Verizon cell and broadband were both OK.

Found this place on Good Sam's campground guide. It is run by a private non-profit club for the benefit of the local community. The majority of sites are seasonal campers with a limited number of overnight sites. Recommend that you call or email a day or more in advance as the office is closed during the day. We drove up with no reservations, but found a someone who directed us to one of the few available sites, A 50 amp and water crushed stone back in. The water was in the right location and shared by 4 sites each with there own shutoff. The electric was on the wrong side and the outlet itself was upside down which made securing our surge protector difficult. We had a fire ring and picnic table. The grounds seemed well cared for, but our fire ring was chock full of cans and garbage. This is not big rig friendly unless you can get one of the new sites that are off by themselves. Just keep an eye out for low wires. The people running the place are very nice and were helpful. TV via batwing was fair. We had networks but not CBS. Verizon cell and broadband were both good.

Paid Senior rate of $9 per night for a nice long, level paved 50 amp back in site. We took one of the sites that cannot be reserved, but are held for walk ups. This is a very busy CG. It filled on the weekend and people were showing up before noon on Sunday looking for an available site. Overall this is a very nice area. This COE CG has Wi-Fi which was a nice surprise, but it was spotty on the weekend. TV via batwing was very good as was our Verizon cell and broadband.

Paid Good Sam rate of $29.70 for a 30 amp full hook-up pull thru. Most of the pull thrus are double sites, so someone could back in behind you. Office staff was very good as we were drive ups. The site hookups are not the best, water is way forward near the road on a wooden post, this makes for a good scent post for dogs. I saw 3 different dogs water the post in less than an hour. The electric is mid-site and the sewer is where it should be. We did not bother with water or sewer, but we needed the full length of our electric cord to reach the pedestal. We came in just for a night to visit the Arch which is a must see if in this area. TV via batwing and Verizon cell and broadband were very good.

Paid $23 plus $1.25 tax per night for a nice long, level 50 amp full hook-up pull thru site. The site was gravel, but the grass had grown over so it seemed like more of a grass site, but with a very solid base. So there would be no problem with a lot of rain. This campground is also a working marina. There were lots of small boats and outboard engines around the main building. That is probably the main complaint from the July 2010 review. However, this is not that bad of a campground and deserves a much better review. TV via batwing was very good with 10 very clear stations. Our Verizon cell did not have a lot of bars, but we had service and our broadband was actually very good at 4G. If your looking for a resort, look elsewhere. But, for a nice quiet place for a few nights this is a good place. Just east across the Osage River is a Sport's Bar attached to a bowling alley that has very good food and burgers. After crossing the river take two quick lefts onto the old road to get there. There is also another campground over there.

Paid the electric only rate for a 50 amp paved pull-through site. The 50 amp service is on the backside of the electric pedestal and very low with no breaker. Potable water is available at the dump station and is easy to get in and out of from either direction. There are some widely spaced faucets in the campground loops as well. Tough place to rate, both loops are on a side hill and most of the sites are not very level. We asked for a level site or the best he could do. We had site 25 and used all of our blocks. Front to back was fairly level, but we had about 3" to 4" of drop to our curb side. But once setup we had a big beautiful site. The sites near the corners of the loop seemed the most level. So site wise, you need to know the layout here. TV, Verizon cell and broadband were all great.

Paid the senior rate for a nice, big roomy lakeside 50 amp full hook-up loop C back in site. The site was double wide and paved so we had plenty of room for our Bounder, dolly and toad. Verizon cell and broadband was excellent at 4 bars. TV via batwing was spotty, but we did pickup two networks at times. This is one of the nicer COE parks that we have stayed at. Melvern 3 miles down 31 has one nice place for a cold one or a sandwich. Other than that - not much else in the area.

Very good value with Passport America, we paid $15 + $2 electric surcharge for a FHU pull-through on a nice wide concrete slab. The Wi-Fi was very good during our stay. Verizon cell and broadband both very good as well. TV via batwing with a wingman attachment was very poor. During the day, we found nothing 4 days running. But later in the day close to evening we picked up multiple stations. We usually had NBC 2-1 and sometimes CBS 6-1, plus a couple others. So you may need to channel scan a few times. The other possible downfall was that it could be very dusty depending on site. We had a lot of traffic near our site 22. The RV Park also has water and electric sites for $20 and dry sites for $10.

A nice little CG with 30 amp and water sites. As reviewed, sites are level grass back in sites. There are covered patios with two picnic tables each. The electric and water is centered behind the patio and you back in on one side of the other. We did have someone come in and park sideways in front of a patio for a couple of nights. They were triple towing and could not back up without unhooking. Overall a nice little quiet place at a very good price.

High marks for value. We paid the Passport America rate and had a nice level 50 amp full hook up, pull thru with Wi-Fi. Our Verizon cell and broadband were both excellent and TV via batwing was also very good. The Wi-Fi was very fast, but they were having some problems during our stay. The electric was good, the water so no good. As reviewed in June make sure you use a filter or come in with enough in your tank. This RV park is what RVers need more of, a decent place at a reasonable price to spend a night or several at. They also have good weekly and monthly rates. They have a very nice pool, but we did not use it. The new owners are super and we saw work being done every day during our stay. We would gladly come back here.

Paid $22.34 for one night, Passport America rate with taxes. We had a nice level 50 amp electric site with water and very good Wi-Fi. The site and almost all of the park is all 1/2" stone here. No Verizon service in this area, but they do have a Verizon hot spot. They parked us next to it so we could use our cell phones. No TV here, they have dish boxes that you can rent for $5 a day. We did not bother as they are a real pain to setup. Use caution when placing anything on the picnic table. We had stuff just sliding right off it, between the grade and wind we could not keep anything on it. Staff was very nice and helpful.

Paid $42.79 for two nights, Passport America rate with taxes. We had a nice long fairly level 50 amp full hook up site with good Wi-Fi. Our Verizon was at the very edge of its service area. TV was bad, no batwing, but cable had some over the air signals, but we did not get much. I ran the coax straight into the back of our front TV, had a couple of PBS type stations. If you fish, a great place to stop. But other than that, its just a pit stop along US-50. Overall, a decent place for a short stay. Very nice helpful folks here.

We paid the weekly rate of $160 plus tax for a total of $173.84. We had a nice large full hook up site on a slab, a very good cable lineup and Wi-Fi included. The slab also included a nice large patio area. This park is located in a very quiet area with no road or train noise. We quickly decided to extend our stay by a month, the monthly rate was $450. The laundry and bath area is super clean. The people here are super nice and have daily get togethers. A short drive either way on US-50 will take you to larger towns that both have Super Walmart and many other shopping options, food, drink, supplies, etc. There is no shortage of very good day trips in this area. We ended up spending two months here and would not hesitate to return.

Passport America rate of $21, plus tax of $2.14. What a nice surprise. We had a nicely shaded, level FHU pull through with cable and Wi-Fi. This park is a few miles outside of town and was 5 - 6 degrees cooler than town, which made a big difference. Mid 90's vs low 100's. Our 5 night stay ended up being 10 nights. There is simply too much to see and do in this area and anything less than a week is not enough time. Make sure to drive up 128 which follows the Colorado River. There is the historic Dewey Bridge about 30 miles up. Plus a free museum at Red Cliffs Lodge and also a winery there. Outstanding food straight across US-191.

Paid $27.75 a night, $25 + 11% tax, a bit high side in our opinion. The town itself does not have much in it. We used this place as a base to see Monument Valley, Four Corners and Valley of the Gods. The first two are pretty good drives to get to. The site was ok, a 50 amp FHU with Wi-Fi that was usually good. At times it could be pretty slow. No Verizon broadband here. TV via batwing was very good.

Senior rate. A bit rough around the edges, but a extremely beautiful location. The only threaded water connection is at the upper bath house. Sites in lower loop are better for larger rigs. We had plenty of room for our '06 35E Bounder with dolly and toad. Verizon cell and broadband were both pretty good much to our surprise. No TV via batwing, but who cares in a place like this. The dump station was closed due to road construction. This is where the Grand Canyon rafters put in, so it is an interesting place. Very empty and hot here in June.

Sites are $20, half with senior pass. There are NO hookups here and no dump station. Water may be available at the group campground if the host is there. Overall, a very nice CG, but to haul in your own water and have no means to dump does pose an issue. We did find one station (not Spanish) with our batwing. No Verizon broadband, we barely had cell service. We would come back, but it would be a short stay again.

Passport America rate for level FHU pull through site - taxes included. No cable but our batwing picked up quite a few stations. The Wi-Fi varied - early morning was pretty good but it could get sluggish at times. Verizon broadband was very good at 4G. They have two rows of pull through sites for short term stays with a patio between each. Fairly roomy sites. Overall a very nice stop. It made a nice base for seeing the area National Monuments and Sedona.

Passport America rate for level FHU pull through site with cable. Rate $16.25 per night plus tax. The cable and Wi-Fi are $2 a night extra, don't bother. Check the cable lineup first, it is just networks and a couple others. Half are Spanish stations and we would have been better off with our batwing. The pull through sites are very tight if you have someone next to you. A decent overnight stop and a good value with PA.

Passport America rate for a very large, fairly level full hookup pull-through site with cable. $16.75 per night plus taxes and electric. We had no trouble leveling on this gravel and stone site with a concrete patio and table. The patio was placed in a funny location: When you position yourself to be able to make the hookup connections the patio is at the back of your RV. No problem, just weird. It is a nice valley setting and very quiet here. They have a Wi-Fi hotspot in the book exchange room. Our Verizon broadband was fairly good and connected at 3G. If you like birds, then Ramsey Canyon Preserve is a must. Take Ramsey Canyon Rd off of 92 to the very end. It is just past the Inn and had all kinds of hummingbirds.

Rate based on weekly rate of $160, taxes included. That rate went up to $175 during our stay. We had a 50 amp gravel / stone pull through full hookups with cable and Wi-Fi that was on the slow side. Most sites are level and and vary quite a bit in size. This park is not big rig friendly, 40' max. It can be tight, but a few sites work. The cable lineup is pretty good, 24 stations in all. We picked this park for the cable. It is also walking distance to the Historic Downtown area. While we had no problems here, there is a lot of foot traffic on 13th street. There is a foot bridge that crosses the creek near the back corner of the RV Park. That area is not the best and you may see some 'homeless types' passing by. In fact my wife even asked if there was a homeless shelter back there. One afternoon, a car pulled up 13th and a women hopped out, looked around and then squatted and urinated 50' from us! Dogs barking all night long, but not real close. If we had satellite TV, we would have stayed elsewhere.

Passport America rate of $18.50. We had a 50 amp gravel / stone pull through FHU and WiFi that was very good. All sites are very level and have nice separation and a tree between sites. We were not sure what to expect based on some other reviews so we checked in for one night. After going out for the afternoon and seeing how nice the city is we added two additional nights. Verizon cell was very good. Broadband was 4G but we used the WiFi. TV via bat wing was good. We picked up all 4 networks and a host of other stations. We did not use the laundry or baths. As posted before they are not the best. White Sands National Monument is 54 miles away and well worth a visit. Las Cruces is a very nice place with lots of places to eat and drink. We found a bar and grill over by the University and had a really good burger there. We would stay again when in the area.

Senior rate. We came in to see the NP and not an RV resort. Incredible views from inside our RV. We had no problem fitting into site 26 with room for our toad behind us. Sites 26 - 30 will handle up to a 40' RV. These sites are 17' wide so it can be tight but its worth it. We picked up NBC out of Midland which was the only English station of the 3 we found. Our Verizon cell was usable but no broadband. The visitor center does have Wi-Fi that we were told was on 24 hours a day. The video there was very good and well worth watching.

No discounts, all sites $25. We had a 50 amp gravel / stone pull through FHU with a short cable lineup and Wi-Fi that varied. It was slow and not usable in the afternoon we arrived. We used our Verizon broadband, which was very good. Early the next am the Wi-FI was very good. We did not bother to unhook our toad as there is nothing here in town to see or do. The $25 price is high for the area which lowered our rating. But we were on our way up to Guadalupe Mtns NP and this was the closest place we could find.

6 is for value with Passport America. Don't expect much, the PA rate is $10 per night and you get a full hookup site. We paid the extra $2 for a decent cable lineup. This is a good place for a 1 night stop with hookups. Too bad the town is a 1, nothing here worth seeing at all. Fast food and gas stations plus a Super Wally.

Paid the Passport rate. We had site 24, a 30 amp pull through FHU. It was gravel and very level with grass between sites. The Wi-Fi was unusable, but Verizon broadband was very good at 4G and TV via bat-wing was also very good. We had stations out of both Austin and San Antonio. Our site was at the end of the row and we had nice views of a horse race track and stables behind that. A nice valley setting. Dust may be an issue at times, but everyone seemed to obey the 5 MPH. Only minor problem was the slow dumping of our tanks. Their system is pretty full. It was a nice stay and a good value. Downtown San Antonio is an hour drive during the day.

Paid the Passport rate which makes for a good value here. The breakfast includes waffles, biscuits and gravy, cereal, bagels, etc. They were nice enough to let us stay 3 nights at the PA rate as we wanted to pass through Houston on a Sunday. This is a very nice park with easy access off of I-10. The road traffic noise from I-10 was not bad at all. All sites are pull through FHU with cable and pretty good Wi-Fi.

Stayed 2 nights using Passport America paying $33.30 ($30 plus 11% tax). We were in the front section and Hwy 63 is a very busy road with lots of truck traffic. We had a double wide site, but there is only about 3' of grass between most sites. With our slide out one of the 3 slide compartment doors could not be opened because of the picnic table in the site next to us. Sites are angled sharply so take a few minutes positioning or you may have trouble parking the second vehicle or may end up too far from the sewer. The Wi-Fi was very good during our stay. The people are very nice, everything was clean and overall we had a nice stay and would gladly stay again. Try Crazy Dave's across the street for food and drink.

This is a great value, with senior discount. Cash or checks only, CC are no longer taken. Sites vary from level to a bit of grade. While big rigs can fit on many sites, this is not a good option for big rigs with trailers or flatbeds. Being Federal, all tires must be on the pavement. Not much overflow parking and only 1 or 2 sites are large enough for a combo unit. Very good TV via batwing and Verizon cell and broadband, both very good.

Great value with senior discount. Most sites are very level with the exception of A loop which has some grade on certain sites. Check site descriptions carefully. Some have trees that may cause problems for roofs and slides. Very good TV via batwing. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. But the Verizon broadband would take several attempts to connect, then was stable.

See June 2012 review for more info. This CG is no 10, but is a very good value with Passport America. We paid $12 plus $1.50 for cable (a pretty good lineup appx. 65 stations) and tax so it was $29 for 2 nights. The Wi-Fi was very good. The area is not the best and the town like many others does not offer much. The CG itself has lots of old dated trailers, but we had no problems. Everyone pretty much keeps to themselves here. There are two sites that have side but side hookups and no sewer. The one facing the pond is not bad. We were in the other and very close to the sites on either side. These are the pull through sites and the largest. Not very big rig friendly so I would not recommend it for anything over 38'. We would stop again if passing thru the area. Overall a solid value with PA and a not a bad place for a night or two.

Note quite a 10 here, but a great value with Passport America. Paid $15 plus tax ($16.65) for a large pull through grass site with 50 amps and water. It was super quiet at night, no noise at all. The only real downfall was the complete lack of over the air TV reception, nothing, nada. But Verizon broadband was great at 4G. We were westbound on I-10 and made the swing north to stop here. When leaving cross straight over I-75 and take the second left (Wellborn) and to pickup I-10 west again. Nice owners and worth a stop.

A great place with great owners. Our third winter here and the park has really caught on. Runs close to 90% filled most of the time, but at overflow during race and bike weeks. Call ahead as it does fill often, but usually a site will be open.

Rate reflects Florida senior discount, $13 plus tax. We stayed in the Pine Grove campground, which has all large level spacious back-in sites with a fair amount of room between them. The sites in this campground are all full hookup, but the 50 amp breaker on our site was bad so we just used the 30 amp outlet. They did replace the 50 amp breaker during our stay, so it was working when we left. As mentioned in earlier reviews there is road noise from US-1. Pine Grove is two U shaped loops. The sites at the bottom of the U back up to US-1 and have the most road noise. TV via batwing was very good, Verizon cell and broadband both excellent at 4G.

Rate reflects Florida senior discount. We stayed in the Ocean CG which has all level back in sites with a fair amount of room between them. Our site was 30 amps and water, I don't think they have 50 amp sites except maybe a couple of host sites. We had no problem getting to the CG and are 12' 10", there were a couple of places we needed to be careful. A could see where one tree was hit, so best bet is to arrive during daylight. Very quiet location with almost no noise at night except the ocean. Several hiking trails plus the beach and boardwalk. TV via batwing was very good, Verizon cell and broadband both excellent on 4G.

Rate reflects 20% senior discount. CG has lots of large level pull through sites to choose from. Very quiet location with almost no noise at night. This is one of our favorite GA state park CG. Several hiking trails and lots of deer in the park. TV via batwing was very good, Verizon cell and broadband both excellent at 4G. Best bet for a cold one is Fish Tales on the road to CG, $1 off during Happy Hour and very good food too. Avoid Augie's unless you like smoke, which it seems almost everyone does in there and then $3 plus tax for domestic bottles.

High marks for a great park owner and value with Passport America. This is a new RV park with 7 full hookup back in sites. Ample room between sites which are grass, but with a nice solid and level base so no problems after rain. A nice quiet location not too far off of I-16 at exit 49. TV via batwing was mostly good, Verizon cell and broadband both excellent at 4G. While the county is not dry full time, it is on Sunday's, restaurants included. Work is on going at this new RV park and we will gladly stop again when we are in this area.

Wow, a nice little county park CG just of I-24 and a great value at $15 senior. $17 is the full price and tent sites are $10. The geese must have moved out, we did not have any problem or signs of them in our site 32a. Beware directions if coming from the south. As of this post the bridge near the park is closed for construction, so US-41 and US-64 have a detour. You must come in from exit 158 and then south to the CG. Also, there are two camping areas here with hookups, one with signs and the other with no signs. That one is to the left when you first come in. We followed the signs and had a nice reasonably level pull thru with 50 amps and water. This part of the CG is set up a bit funny, road is one way but some of the sites are angled for coming in the wrong way. But no big deal. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. TV via batwing was so so, but no NBC or Fox, lots of church stations thou. We did pickup CBS (mostly good) and ABC after working the antenna. Dump station is setup funny as mentioned.

Senior rate. A very nice and a very busy park. Road coming in was a bit tight in places, so beware if you see someone coming out before turning in. We were able to get site #1, not the best site to get into. It is a hard 90 degree turn backing in and there is a deep ditch on CG road making it even harder to make the swing. It is listed as maximum equipment length of 38' for that reason. But once in the site was great, probably 70' to 80' deep. TV via bat wing was very good. Verizon cell and broadband also very good at 4G, but the broadband was slower at times. Only real negative here is the dump station. Water pools where you need to make your sewer hose attachment, so you are in some not so clean water while dumping.

Good value with senior discount. This is a big CG and sites vary from level to very inclined. CG is on a side hill next to lake. The interior roads in loop B are pretty steep in places. As mentioned in another post, the CG is a bit off the beaten path with not much of anything nearby. Good place for boaters and fishing. TV via batwing was very good, Verizon cell good, broadband was OK at 3G.

High marks for great owners and value. CG is a work in progress since they have taken over. A bit rough around the edges in places. Sites are mostly gravel and stone, but some dirt spots are around that got muddy with the rain. We had a nice long not quite level pull through with 50 amp FHU's. TV via batwing was very good and Verizon cell and broadband good at 3G. No problem with train or road noise, a nice quiet location just down the road from Mammoth Caves NP.

No problem with Grandma or pa during our 3 night stay. Sites are crushed stone and not gravel, no problem with pooling water. As mentioned sites are narrow, but we had an empty site next to us all 3 days. We were 1 site away from the baths and laundry building in site 20. The water hookup is recessed about 18" below grade and enclosed in a covered 8" pipe. No working Wi-Fi during our stay. Verizon broadband connected at 4G and TV via batwing was very good. There are two dead ends in the CG, so stick to the center rows until you decide on a site. Easy to loop out of and back into the CG if needed.

We stayed as part of a large Rally and had a grass site with no hookups. Based on what we saw during our 8 nights here, I am not sure that we would stay here if we were not part of a group. One of our friends was rear ended at the entrance and it took an hour and a half for a cop to show up after they called for one. It is not a very good area at all so we would be inclined to stay elsewhere and drive in. Sites varied from fairly nice to not anywhere near being level. Batwing TV reception was very good and Verizon connected at 4G.

We only came here as we had service scheduled the next day to have a new air cooling unit installed. Hookups are side by side, but both sides. Shared electric on one side and shared water on the other. We only used electric so it was overpriced for that. Site was mucky, a couple were OK, but there are a lot that have a bit too much grade for our liking. It served its purpose, but we won't be back anytime soon. We will stay somewhere else and drive in the next time.

Very good value with Passport America. This is our second stay here. Makes a good base for seeing the area. Michigan City is a short drive away and the Indiana Dunes NL are a bit further. We had a 30 FHU on a slab not quite large enough for us. Very good TV reception with bat-wing and Verizon broadband connected at 4G.

As reviewed, sites are in a wooded area that is very quiet. Back in sites are very roomy. The only real downfall here is trying to call them, expect some serious wait time. We just showed up and had no problem getting a site. The women in the office seemed put out by that. She had to enter our info herself. Note that they put a $25 hold on your credit card in addition to the nights you are paying for. If you want a receipt here you must go to the casino for it when you leave. We just left which is how I saw the $25 hold, I thought that they charged 3 nights and not 2. Campground is easy access from I-80 and makes a good stop over location.

Golden Age rate for the non-reservable site of $18. We had a nice long level concrete pad, site 65 on the MS River. The Verizon signal was strong and could use both our phones and broadband. The broadband connection speed varied at times. TV via batwing was very good.

Golden Age rate for the non-reservable site of $18. We had a nice long level concrete pad, site 16. We could reach the water fill with about 85' of hose. This is our second stay here and this time we had a good Verizon signal and could use both our phones and broadband. The broadband connection was good during the day, but at times (early am) it would only connect at 2G and was not usable. TV via batwing was also much better this time, but would also be spotty at times. The trains have not changed and are still running all night and day. There is a steep drop off crossing the tracks, so if towing with a dolly you should unload towed before crossing them. We are very glad that we came back.

Very easy to find from US-53 exit 99, east not quite 2 miles on Hwy S to south just over a mile on 124. A turn lane forms, take a left on Edward St (its between the YMCA and a school), fair grounds on right. Very good value for a 30 amp full hookup site. Rates are $10 no hookups, $15 for 20 amp electric only, $20 for a 30 amp FHU and $30 for a 50 amp FHU, we opted for just using 30 amps. Plenty of fairly level grass sites to pick from. We spent two nights alone, but its a nice area so no problems. Verizon cell and broadband (4G) excellent. TV via batwing was also very good. Very quiet at night. Great on site worker, came over and asked if we found everything OK. He also asked if we wanted a picnic table, which he then delivered to us. Very nice table built by the high school shop class with the Farm Bureau supplying the materials. Wished we could have stayed longer. Lots of nice pubs and saloons to pick from. The Irvine Ghost Pub is an interesting stop and has good prices, it is near US-53 on W River St, Bus-29.

This place is overrated other than value, $17 for an interior 50 amp FHU back in site. Most sites are not level, we were on a side hill site and could not get completely level using all of our blocks. Someone tried the site next to us, but gave up and paid extra for a site with a slab. There are 5 sites that have concrete pads, but they are very close to each other with side by side hookups that might not work (water and electric on one side, sewer on the opposite front corner!!!). Verizon cell and broadband were both good. TV via batwing was fair, 3 PBS stations and NBC, but NBC would come and go at times. The CG has mostly seasonal people who are less than friendly, the women in the office (a 5th wheel) greeted us with 'what do you want' when we stopped to check in. The town itself is dead, no way would we spend a summer here. The only good thing around is Hurley, WI (next to Ironwood, MI). It has a great main drag, Silver Street and was once known as the 'hell hole of the range' with its 67 saloons. But it is down to around 30 now and makes for an interesting place to visit.

Reservations highly recommended; the campground was full almost every night during our 7 night stay. Prior review is good, but you do drive in and out right past the dumpster! We were in a site (#12) overlooking the lower sites on the water. These sites are a bit more roomy then the sites below, which are fairly close together. Washing is allowed, $5 cars, $10 RVs. As mentioned, the Wi-Fi can be spotty here. Verizon cell and broadband were both excellent with a 4G connection. The Keweenaw Brewing Co. in town is a can't miss for a cold one. This is a best bet for seeing the Keweenaw Peninsula.

See Aug 2011 reviews for more info. I was surprised when we pulled in and saw the sites. They are very roomy with lots of space between sites. We had a choice of 4 sites and took site 5. Very quiet later at night. TV via batwing was very good. Verizon cell good, broadband was a bit slow. Wife won $165 at black jack, and I broke even after two hours of playing. It is just off of M-28 5 miles east of US-41.

Nice location right on the lake. We came in with no reservations, but were able to get a site in the overflow area. There are 3 sites with 30 amp electric and water, plus a couple more with 20 amps. These sites are first come, first served, so it worked out great for us. We did have some low voltage issues as we were here during a heat wave. We ended up plugging into a 20 amp outlet at the bath house which ended the low voltage problem. The bath house was also a Wi-Fi hotspot. We were next to the newer bath house that looked very clean. Verizon cell and broadband were both very good. TV via batwing was so, so. But we did have a couple of stations most of the time.

Beware of this place, if in a larger RV or with slides, while 1 or 2 sites may work, it is not big rig (or medium rig) friendly at all. The website says: "A magnificent setting with full modern facilities." Well maybe 30 or 40 years ago, not now. Most sites are electric only (or no electric) and not very level. We were hitting branches on the driveway in, with our 35' MH. There is a water station for filling, no water hookups at site. Verizon had no service here. It was a real short stay for us.

Low marks are for the lack of mowing, should be more of an 8. Sites are 30 amp and water only, most are backin sites, but some are setup so you can pull into them. Hookups are side by side for most sites. Although it is on the lake, price seems a bit high for this somewhat dated CG. No direct lake access. Verizon cell and broadband both very good, TV via batwing was also good, but we would lose the signal at times. As mentioned, the dump station is setup like a T. You pull in and turn right behind a cottage, then back up a bit to dump. After dumping you backup some more into the other half of the T and then pull out. Only 1 RV at a time can do this.

Rate based on 4 nights at Passport America rate, 1 night full price and then 4 more nights at PA rate, paid for with a check. We had a 50 amp FHU pull through site. We found the owners to be very helpful during our stay. The CG makes a good base for seeing the area and we had lake views from our site. The ferry shuttles will come to the CG for pickups to the docks and brings you back. So if you are going out to Mackinac Island you don't need a toad. The casino also has a shuttle that will pick you up. Our Verizion cell and broadband were very good and TV via batwing was strong with a limited channel lineup. Only downfall here is the water, it is city water but has a really bad taste to it.

This is an older CG with decent hookups, 30 amp electric and water. Both good for our stay. Nothing fancy here, but a solid value for $15 a night. Sites are hard packed grass pull thrus and fairly level. TV via batwing was strong, but with a limited channel list. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. Be careful pulling in, it is a long narrow drive so you want to avoid meeting on coming traffic. But traffic volume is low here. As long as you don't expect much, you will have a nice spot to visit the Mackinaw from. Which is a lot bigger than we expected given its population of under 1,000, so we ended up spending 6 nights. Plenty of food and drink choices in town, but on the high side. For a good alternative, try Clydes Place which has outstanding pizza and much better prices. Take a left out of the CG to US-31 and then 3 miles south to Carp Lake. It is just south of the blinking light on the left.

This resort is a true 10, the best resort we have ever stayed at in our 5 plus years on the road. We stayed as part of the Pay 1 night, Stay 1 night free promotion for months of June and September 2012. So it worked out to just over $30 per night after tax. Large, level, double wide concrete pads with flared entrance that is even with the street pavement. No concrete edge to bump over and no cracked corners on any of the pads. Hookups are integrated with the pad, so all hookups are on the pad and not off on the grass. The new mgmt team makes staying here a pleasant experience. Monday afternoons are Margaritaville on the Bay with live entertainment, on Friday's is the weekly Cocktail Party and the Morning Perk (coffee, juice, pastries, etc.) is served 7 days a week. The Noggin Room at the Perry Hotel has daily happy hour, very good Pub style food and pizza, $2 pints on Sundays. A very nice area to visit and resort to stay at.

4 paved loops plus a walkin tent area. Loops 1, 2 & 3 have optional electric $5 a night extra. Sites 1, 3 and most of loop 4 can be reserved for an extra $3 per night. NOTE: no generators allowed anywhere in this CG. There is potable water in each of the loops. Sites in all 4 loops are paved and vary in length, as noted all tires must be on the pavement. The hosts check on this on a regular basis. Best bet for a cold one is the Lumberjacks in Honor, food was ok, $2.50 domestic bottles, $2 during happy hour. Glen Arbor had real good food at Art's Tavern, but pricey for drinks, $3.75 domestic pints.

Very good value with Passport America. We came in expecting more of a family / kids type campground, but had a nice quiet two day mid-week stay. The front section near the pool was all paved and the pull-through sites were setup so that every other site goes in one way and the site between goes the other way. So if you have someone in the site next to you, they are actually behind you. This gives the effect of having an empty site next to you all the time. Very roomy, mostly grass sites with concrete runners to park on. TV via batwing was OK, we had NBC and CBS both coming in good, ABC and others were too weak to watch. Wi-Fi was very good, but it was quiet. Verizon cell and broadband were very good. Overall a very nice quiet area to stop in and we enjoyed our two days here.

Wow, I can't believe that we are the first review for this wonderful little muni CG in Montague. We came in on a spring special of second night at half price, so we paid $45 for two nights, no credit or debit cards are taken here. We had a nice level pull through with 50 amp full hookups with both cable and Wi-Fi. Hookups were in very good condition and easy to access and it was a good cable lineup. The CG is right next to a state bike path and located right in town on Business 31. Everything (ice cream stand, grocery store, downtown shops, laundry, pizza, dining, etc.) is within walking distance, a nice change of pace for us. Our site was nice and long, but a bit on the narrow side, some are better than others. There is a nice concrete patio that is even with the grade, so no possible tire damage while pulling in. There is a tent area and a small fishing stream running through the CG. The Wayside Bar & Grille was a very busy place for the locals, doesn't look like much from the outside but was very clean inside. Tall domestic drafts were $1.50 regular price, $1 on Sundays. The food was OK, not the best but the service was very good and we also walked to it.

We stayed as part of the FMCA visitation program, but daily site rentals are available. The only possible negative was the lack of cable, but TV reception via batwing was very good. We picked up all networks plus others. The Wi-Fi was also very good during our stay. We also had good reception with our Verizon broadband. Everything was super clean and the laundry nice was very nice. They even have a storm shelter under it. There is also a foot path leading to a store next door, which was nice if you need any last minute items. This is one of the nicest RV parks we have stayed in during our 5+ years on the road and is one of the top rated parks in the country by Trailer Life.

Low marks for value, other than that park was OK for a night, two max. This former KOA still has KOA pricing at its worst. For $34 (less 10% Good Sam, plus tax) we had a 30 amp, water and sewer site. Hookups were OK, but no breaker on outlet. 50 amp sites are extra as well. Cable TV is $2 per day extra, check the very limited channel selection before getting it. Very good reception via batwing, Verizon cell and broadband both very good. Basically this is just an over priced former KOA and not a destination.

Very good value with PA for 50 amp, water and sewer. As posted very limited number of sewer hookups and they are layer out real weird. We had site 11 and took our time making sure we could reach the sewer (forward) and electric (behind RV). Stayed over the Memorial Day weekend and it was very quiet here.

Paid $28 weekday, $30 weekend less 10% senior discount. A bit on the high side, but close to Lexington so they can charge more. Limited number of sites with sewer on the first loop. Most of them have some grade but a couple are OK. Sites vary but many of them are level. Some are pretty short. Overall not a bad park. The Waterfront Lounge across the river had good reasonable food and daily specials. For a nice scenic ride take CR 169 across the free ferry (cars and small trucks only, it handles 3 cars max). This becomes Highway 1974 and goes thru nice horse country and ends up right in the middle of Lexington. A nice option to or from the city vs I-75.

A good selection of level sites. TV via bat-wing was poor, 4 PBS type stations, no networks. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. The water at dump station was either off or not working, used the site next to it to rinse hose. Golf course looked very nice, but weekday rate of $39.75 had us looking elsewhere.

Overall the campground was very clean and in very good repair. The Wi-Fi was spotty speed wise, but our Verizon was 4G and fast. We enjoyed our 7 night stay. There is a ton of things to see and do in this area. No problem with grades getting into or out of this park.

All hookups worked fine, though they might give you a pause looking at them. A nice quiet area but some road noise from I-75. We spent 4 nights. There are two golf courses nearby. As posted, you can walk to many places, Applebee's is right across the street. The campground is right behind the Raceway gas station so turn into it as if you are getting gas. A Russell Stover store is also nearby, so be warned.

$28 full rate, seniors 20% less. Very limited number of sites suitable for motor home and larger rigs. All of those are in the first area, a row of 12 pull throughs. Don't venture deeper into the campground without first checking for a site. It is tight - real tight - and that was in the toad. But our site 11 was a nice long pull through, almost level, 50 amp, water, and a very limited cable lineup (about 12 stations). Easy access off of I-75. Cartersville has just about one of everything. Overall a very nice park and area.

MH's towing heed the RR warning if coming in via the signs. Very sharp incline, there are a couple of big lots near the park turnoff on US-278 for unhooking. The CG here has lots of nice level sites, mostly back-ins. Paid $28 less 20% senior discount, plus $1 for 10 cable TV stations. No Verizon cell or broadband in CG, but there was a usable signal near the office. We had a really big level site. Only downside is the CG exit and dump stations are on the same narrow road. So you could be stuck in a dump line if only trying to go somewhere. The golf course was overloaded on a Friday; we drove off the course after 5 hours and having 4 more holes to play. Not acceptable at all. Laura Walker and Little Ocmulgee are much better options.

Paid $28 less 20% senior discount for a 40' site. As reviewed in Dec '08 and by others, most sites have some grade to them. There are quite a few back-in sites that are nice and level for MH's. One thing I did not care for was having to go to the lodge to check-in. There is no RV parking there and if it was busy it could become a problem. Being April we were able to play the golf course which is a nice layout. No discounts for being in the CG though. Verizon cell and broadband both very good.

We just spent another winter here and the rate reflects that. The new phase 3 section has matured and this park continues as a 'best bet' for the Daytona area. However, while sites were usually available most of the time (forget Race and Bike weeks), the park ran 90 percent full or more most of the time. It has really caught on with folks who winter further south. So a reservation is recommended.

$8 is Golden Age rate. Nice big and wide campsites. Big rig access is limited. Most of the paved pads are about 30' deep, some have plenty of room behind the curb stop. So backing in up to a 38' MH and having room to drop jacks is no problem. There are also a couple of pull throughs which are wide spots in the road. They will take longer units. A water line runs to each bath and there is a threaded water spigots on each of the loops. We could have reached one from our site number 10. No problems with bugs during the day, but watch out for the little ants. BEWARE, know your snakes and watch out as they are in the CG. Diamondback, Cottonmouth and Pythons were seen during our stay.

Rate is FL senior rate, the 9 is value, $23 with taxes included on Key Largo in December, that is a bargain. It is a great State Park. I can't add much to prior reviews other than to agree with most of them. Beware D'Hookers Seafood across and just down US-1. It is way over priced, fish and chips was potato chips right out of a bag. $13 bucks for 4 little pieces of fish and potato chips!!! Real fries could be ordered as an extra!!! Take a ride to Alabama Jacks for good seafood. It was worth the ride.

Rate is Passport America plus tax. While this is no resort, it is a very good value and soon of the reviews fail to reflect that. There is nothing wrong here, good solid hookups and level sites. By no means a high end resort, but we have stayed several times and will continue to return.

Good value with Passport America. Nice large, level pull throughs with good hookups and a very good cable TV lineup with both the golf and NFL networks included. However, beware the front sites. That country road has steady traffic 24x7. Even 3:00 am Sunday morning. We would go back, but would go somewhere in the back.

Very good value with PA, good for 3 nights, then must pay full price (or Good Sam rate) for 2 nights and then PA is good again. We spent 7 nights this time and washed the RV again and a couple rounds of golf. We like the 30 amp sites better than the 50 which have side by side hookups. Although they did space them every other, but you could have someone on top of you. No problems getting level or in and out of the sites. I don't know what the last reviewers problem could have been. Lots of other CG's could learn something from the way this place is managed. We will be back.

Passport America rate. The full rate of $42.50 is too steep for this area so we only spent the 1 night good for PA. Most sites are pull throughs with a concrete patio and crushed stone pad. Full hook up with a limited basic cable lineup and good wi-fi. They also have a continental breakfast included, coffee, juice, cereal, bagels and toast. Overall it is a very nice resort, probably a good place for a small rally. They also have a very nice laundry room and allow RV washing.

Senior rate, still an outstanding value here. We stayed on the Ocean side again, site 40. A nice big back-in. Lots of fruit flies this time, so fly tape and bug spray are really needed here. We would come again.

Paid non-resident rate of $38 less $2 senior discount. Our second stay here. We were in the front section and the 50 amp worked good. It did drop us once (our PD - PT50C surge protector) for high frequency, that was a short outage. Still the best bet for the DE coast area.

Rate based on off season mid-week (Sun - Thu) 5 night special at $164. 50 amp full hookups with limited cable TV. Place was real quiet in late Sept, but it makes a good base for seeing the area. Sites vary from tight to nice, so it can be hit or miss. Our Verizon broadband was also hit or miss, sometimes great other times constantly dropping the connection. Only real downfall was the laundry, nice clean machines, but no place to sit other than a bench outside (it was raining). Overall a good bet for the area.

Group rate, we added an extra night and rates had dropped to $20. We were in site 14, a nice level pull through with 30 amp, water, sewer and a decent cable lineup. Verizon broadband was outstanding here. I did note some of the things mentioned in previous reviews, but do not have the same complaints. Good value for price paid.

Different, in almost 5 years of full timing we have never seen anything like this place. Sites are 30 amp and water only, they have wi-fi but no cable. TV via batwing and Verizon cell and broadband were both outstanding as there are towers on the ridge just above the CG. No discounts given here, so it is pricey this time of year for midweek stays. Most places discount the rates in the off season. One note, this is not big rig friendly, they have a couple of sites that do work with care. Our roof top AC units hit wires going into the dump station. Lots of trees to watch out for. Owner thinks MH's can just plow thru the pines!!! That would be a pull through site. Use care if in a true big rig here.

Wow, what a nice find. The name really describes this place to a T. We co-hosted a small Rally of 8 Bounders here and everyone was impressed with the place. Very quiet and peaceful here. Most of us were in the huge pull through grass sites with 50 amps and water. Even with heavy downpours on two days we had no trouble with getting out. Might be an issue after really intense rain. Hookups are side by side, but we all had so much room between us that it was a non issue. TV via batwing and Verizon cell and broadband were both very good. This is a very good value compared to what the parks closer to the ocean charge. We paid $30 plus tax for our sites. We will definitely be back again.

Rates are $30 for sites 1 - 11 with 30 amp and water, $20 for the two shelters and $15 for sites 12 - 22, no hookups but shared water, half price with Golden Age pass. Sites 1 - 11 are mostly level but with some minor grade, sites 8 & 9 drop off in front and I would avoid these two with a MH over 32' as your front axle would probably be on the grade. As mentioned, this is a very quiet area and there is plenty of space between sites. The lake is beautiful and the hiking trails around it are nice. TV via batwing is fair, we usually have NBC, Fox and Ion, but they come and go at times. Verizon cell and broadband are very strong here. Nice little playground for kids, a basketball court, horse shoes at the CG and an 18 hole disc golf course and boat launch are nearby. The Thompson Speedway is also close by.

We also stayed in Beechwood as it was the only CG open. I agree with previous review on 40' rigs. Our site, 409, was listed as equipment length 35'. But we could have backed our 35' Bounder in another 5' with not problem. This area looks like it was redone not too long ago. All sites except the 4 long pull thrus are paved and level. But they vary in size. We enjoyed our stay and wished we could have stayed longer.

Rate reflects half price senior discount with the free MD Golden Age pass issued on site. We stayed in site C-6 with 30 amp electric, $26.74 per night plus service charge. One night was free and the two day service charge was $8.78, $3 per day plus $1 out-of-state and tax. Our total for two nights was $35.52. Overall a very nice CG, camping pads are level but small. So the driveway is very important for larger rigs. We are just over 35' and the pad appx. 24' x 24'. So most of our front was in the drive, but long and level so we had a good site. Many sites work for larger rigs but you really got to pick and choose as some drives have pretty steep grades and some sites are backed by trees preventing you from backing up too far. Dump station is very nice, but two double 90 degree turns to the very close gate makes the exit a bit tricky. Overall we had nice quiet stay.

Rate reflects 4 month winter monthly stay. We first stopped by in Nov '09 and really liked the park and people here. So we came back for the winter and were surprised at the new phase 3 area. All paved sites with cable hookups which is actually a dish feed and park wide Wi-Fi. The vast majority of people are friendly, but they do have 'packs' of French Canadians at times, for some reasons these people go out of the way to be rude. Other than that it is a great place.

Found this CG in the Passport America directory and agree with other reviews. As we came in on a Friday we paid the Good Sam rate of $27 plus tax. A good all inclusive price for 50 amp, water, sewer, good cable lineup and Wi-Fi. Our only problem was that we could only stay two days. So it is on the must return to list. Great, friendly people here. They had a hot dog roast that all were invited to during our two day stay.

Good value with Passport America, we only opted for a 30 amp site with water. A nice grass pull thru facing the woods. 50 amp and sewer sites are available, but with additional sur-charges using PA. Good location off of US-17 and not far from I-526, makes a good base for seeing Charleston.

Passport America rate. PA sites are in an older section which is OK, but not the best area. All hookups work OK and most people are nice. We have been here before and it is a good place for short stays, but I would not want to spend a lot of time in this area.

We drove in by mistake as we were headed next door to Southern Oaks a PA park. Owner came out and told us where we were, but also said he would give us a discount for being PA and said $21.50 for FHU with cable TV and Wi-Fi. We had a site assigned at Southern Oaks as it was Sunday morning so we headed there, that site had serious tree problems for a MH with slides so we went back to CG of the S. OK for short stays, good hookups and as mentioned just watch the ramp into and out of the site as they are fairly sharp. The Laundry room was very nice and the owner great. We would stop again if passing by.

Passport America rate of $19 plus taxes. Tough to rate as it is so new. Sites are large and level, but landscaping is still needed. This area is very quiet this time of year, not much around at all. But it is a very nice setting. Verizon broadband was excellent. TV via bat wing had 7 PBS type stations, but one 40.1 did carry NBC programming for news. Basically this is a work in progress, so the ratings should trend up.

Passport Rate of $20 for 50 amps plus 11% taxes. We have been here several times and they are always doing something to improve the park. However they really need to do something with the entrance drive. It was the worst we have seen, lowered our rating to a 7 because of a tight site. We were only spending two nights so we took a pull through behind the pool and the sites are narrow. Mexico Beach is still one of our favorite places in FL.

Golden Age rate and a great value hence the 9. All sites are paved and level, we were in Loop A with 50 amps and water. They are actively cleaning the beaches in the area. We were not affected by the oil in any way, but you could see signs of it. We were able to walk on the beach. Great place that we need to go back to as we did not have enough time to visit the fort.

They bad news is that LA no longer accepts the Golden Age pass except for LA, DE & MD residents so no senior discount for most folks. The second bad news is that the reservation fee for a drive up is $6, so we paid $24 ($18 + $6) for a night. No longer a good value on a short stay, OK for longer stays where the $6 is spread out a bit. But it is still one of the better LA SP's.

Good value for 50 amp and water back in site. I think it is a bit overrated through. We stopped on a Friday and it was busy, but not full. Had some young adults that seemed to use it for a gathering place, but we had no problems. Some might not like the fast traffic though. Sites vary is size a lot, the 40' was probably lucky to find a level site. But for the price it is an OK place.

Agree with prior review, great stop over for $17.50 with Passport America. Breakfast includes make your own waffles, yummy. Short but OK cable lineup. Water bib is very close to the sewer which we did not use. I did not give it a 10 because of its location being just off I-10. NOTE We stopped for gas just east of here where there is a Shell, Mobil and truck stop, these stations are way overpriced (40 - 50 cents over going prices), hope on I-10 and go into or just past Beaumont if you need gas / fuel.

Passport America rate of $12.50 is an excellent value here per earlier reviews. The only downside is that it is indeed in the middle of nowhere and the town really does not have anything to offer. It is a good place to stop over and kick back for a couple of days while passing through, just have your supplies on board as there is only a small local market here.

Passport America rate is $17.50 but we were renting from friends who have an extra site on a slab with 50 amp service. This is our second stay and feel it is one of the better places in the Mission area. But we do prefer Florida over the RGV. It is windy and dusty here, plus English is a second language here. This park has a big hall and golf course, the hall hosts functions during the winter and the golf course hosts an open 9 hole scramble twice a week which is great fun. The Wi-Fi is great, they do have some road construction going on now. We enjoyed our stay.

Passport America rate. For the regular site rate of $41, the sites here are very tight, especially the pull throughs. They are nice and long, fairly level with concrete pads and good utilities. But the 10' wide pads are connected by patio's that are less than 7' wide and with today's slides it leaves very little room between RV's. Our large slide came out to within 3 inches of the electric post. The WiFi was good, the CATV only had about 10 stations, networks, CNN and weather, but no ESPN! We used the batwing most of the time. Next time it will be only a night or two maximum.

Agree that the park is no 10, but the folks working here are 10's. The sites here vary and some are much nicer than others. Note that a $20 cash deposit is required for the gate card. This is a good value with Passport America given its location in Austin. We had a 30 amp back in site with water, sewer, CATV and WiFi. There was very good separation between the back in sites with large bushes providing good privacy. We did get a lot of road noise from I-35. The interior roads are very narrow and exiting has you going to the back of the park and then back down the center. We had the breakfast on Friday morning before leaving, great value for $2. Pancakes, biscuits and gravy, danish, muffins, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, juice, coffee and tea. Good access into the city by crossing over I-35 a few lights west and then a right on Congress, this takes you straight to the State Capitol building and is an easy drive.

Nice city park campground. We had a really nice 30 amp back in with water, site #5, $8 with senior discount, great value. Some of the sites here do not have a lot of room between them. We were not impressed with the premium sites with 50 amp electric. Call ahead as this is a very busy place. The stay limit is 90 days off season and 28 in season. Very quiet here at night. The WiFi here is through the library and will give you a security certificate error, just ignore it and continue. We had no problems with it during our stay, but did not access any bank sites. Use exit 454A Justin Rd exit to FM 407 then east on Lake Park Rd if coming from the north. We enjoyed our 5 night stay here.

Good value with Passport, $12.50 for a 50 amp full hookup site with good strong wi-fi. The free laundry was a real surprise, We did not expect it to be so nice. The laundry room was immaculate with new machines, 3 of each. As reviewed some sites have a bit of grade, but we were assigned a good level site. If in a larger MH I would call to make sure that they have a suitable site. Our Verizon phones were good; did not try the broadband here. TV via batwing was fair to sometimes good in the morning. Only downside here was the free running dogs that were not picked up after. We had a couple of good sized droppings left in our utility hookup area. The dog was let out by itself every morning by what appeared to be permanent folks.

A nice little surprise, wasn't sure what we would find based on the previous reviews. Park is very clean with nice landscaping and large level paved sites. Some 50 amp sites available, but we went to the far end and took a 30 amp site. We had a nice large grass island on our curb side with a concrete patio and picnic table. If in a larger rig then you might want to stop near the entrance and walk through first. Turning around is not easy in a large rig. As mentioned there is a lot of traffic, but better than trains all night. Verizon broadband had a strong signal but was on the slow side, TV via bat wing was very good. Not too much in the city, but the Lazy Dog Saloon is on Scott Ave and can be reached by cutting through the neighborhood on 8th St then Lincoln and right on Scott.

Nice city park campground along Lake Lawtonka. Preferred sites are $15 with no discounts, other sites are $12 or $8 seniors 65 and older. The 9 rating is more for value and location. There are two different camping areas, the larger one, this one, is to the south between OK-58 and the lake. Robinson's Landing is to the north and is all Preferred sites. However, it looked like it could use some serious tree trimming and the sites were somewhat tight, but had level concrete pads. We stayed in the southern area which slopes down to the water, so some blocking was needed. Take your time setting up. Sites are large and well spaced with shared water and 50 amp electric. There is a minimum of 100' between site shelters. Each site has a covered patio and picnic table with a fish cleaning station and a dated grill. Could use some TLC here, litter, trimming, etc., but overall a great value and location. Great view of Mt. Scott, 2464', in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge across the lake. You can drive to the top of it for great views in all directions. The Holy City of the Wichitas is also in the Refuge and is must see. Verizon cell and broadband flew as there was a tower nearby. TV via batwing was also good.

Probably OK on a summer weekend, but over priced for this area in October. $25 for 50 amp and water site, $23 for one of the 10 sewer sites with 30 amps and water or $20 for 30 amps and water. $2 discount for seniors. No Verizon cell or broadband, TV via batwing was OK until the wind picked up and rocked the motorhome. This park has several campgrounds, the good reviews are for the new section Cedar Point with the 50 amp and water sites on concrete slabs. We spent two nights and only 3 or 4 sites were filled. It was empty during the day. The South campground nearby is much older with dated hookups and has the 10 sewer sites. Sites in this area are grass or gravel and tight, but it was empty. There is also a tent area between the two. There are also camp sites on the north end of the dam. We did not go there. Foss has nothing, no gas or corner store, nothing. Our cell phones did not work there either. Clinton has a few big chain fast food places and lots of Mexican places. The Route 66 museum is in Clinton.

We agree with the Oct. 2009 review. This is a very nice county park that gets a lot of day use. The campground is a bit rough around the edges, but is being worked on. 12 pull thru and 8 back in sites with electric and water and 21 pier sites with no hookups. Sites are all gravel and stone, large and level. 25th Street (KS-64) is 1 mile east of Wal-Mart and marked by two brown signs and a blue camping sign. No blue sign at Lake Rd just past the fish hatchery. Note KS-64 is also Lake Rd and goes out to US-281 just S of Pratt City limit. We left that way, 64 bypasses town. Verizon cell and broadband very good as was TV via bat wing. Nearby the hatchery is the operations headquarters for Kansas State Department of Wildlife and Parks. They have a nice wildlife museum there open to the public and well worth a visit. They also have a kid's fishing pond! In town is the Pratt County Museum with limited hours and also free. We had a great stay here and would come back.

Paid Passport rate of $16.90 which included 50 amp and CATV surcharges of $2 each plus tax. OK for a night or two as it is just off the interstate, but it is barely a 7. Real strange layout here. Most sites are double ended, double wide with curb sides facing in. So you could step out of your MH and be facing the steps of another one parked next to you. Very little room between them. They worked like pull throughs as it was not too busy. But you could end up with someone behind you or in front of you. Sites are gravel, not paved. Hookups were setup funny and were spaced well apart so it was a long reach to some, but they worked OK. The laundry is open to the public and most parked right in front of the office. So if you see cars when you come in, park so you can get around them. Laundry was good sized, $1.50 wash and .25 cents for 6 minute increments of dryer time. Waudby's Sports Bar & Grill on Main St just past 7th had very good daily specials and lots of TV's. It has a new owner Shanda and closes between 2 and 4 in the afternoon on weekdays only. Open all day on weekends.

Senior rate for off season, $8 for any site. Normal rates are $12 for no hookups and go up to $18 for 50 amp. Some of the no hookup sites are huge and on the lake. A few of the 30 amp sites have there own water. The 50 amp sites are all in a row on the left when you come in. Sites are mostly gravel, but some grass sites. Only problem was the number of dogs off lease here.

Nice little city park campground with 30 amp electric and shared water. Sites are not well defined and are mostly grass, a couple of sites are stone. Verizon cell and broadband were both strong and TV via bat wing was good. The park is about a mile from US-30 and the train tracks, so the trains were not too bad. Not really big rig friendly, I would not bring in a 40' here. We are a bit over 35' and towing, site was OK but the roads are tight. The campground is separate from the city park, but connected with nice walking trails. Walkers Steak House just east of town on the left side of US-30 has very good sandwiches at a decent price.

As reviewed before, this is a nice little no frills park. We spent 5 nights at the Passport America rate of $12.50 and had a nice level, 50 amp full hookup pull through site. Wi-Fi was strong and dependable. We asked and were given permission to wash. Chappell is a nice clean quiet town of around 1,000. Town is walking distance from the park. The houses behind town are all well kept, this is a nice stopping point along I-80. There is a very nice 9 hole golf course nearby. The only downside here was the lack of batwing reception and busy train tracks. But the trains are everywhere out west. The Cabela's in Sidney west on I-80 has an outstanding North American game display.

Spent two nights and paid the $10 for the second. Sites on the outside are all 20 amps, the sites in the middle near the trees have 30 amps. There are bathrooms and a dump station here, but we did not use them. Head west on US-34 to Fort Morgan, then left on Main St. a couple of blocks down (yellow sign) for a good place for a drink. Brush has one overpriced dump only.

We called Riverview the day before we wanted to stay primarily because it is a Passport America park. We were told by phone that they could only reserve a site with a Good Sam discount but that when we arrived they would give us the PA discount. Upon arrival the office refused to honor the PA discount. The office wasn't even apologetic for the misrepresentation by their employee, they just said "No PA discount". Had we not just driven 8 hours we would have gone to another park. Wi-Fi is slow (5.5 Mbps) and disconnects from the Internet frequently. The park does not appear well maintained. Park has many full timers. Some sites have reasonable spacing, but most, including the pull throughs, are simply too tight. There is little space between the slides of RVs in adjoining sites. Overall, the sites are very cramped, with a few exceptions. The park offers "river" view back in sites. The "river" is more like a stream but it doesn't matter anyway since the bank is so overgrown with trees the view is mostly obscured. Avoid this place.

As reviewed before, just a big level gravel lot with hookups. Sites have side by side hookups, but they only assigned every other site. Would not want to be here if they got busy. Place was empty by 10:00 am except for some permanent units. I am not happy with the office person who took our call, they needed all kinds of info to take the reservation. The usual plus make, model and tag number of our RV. Told her we were coming in from the north, she made no mention of the detour. It sends you between two gas stations, as there is no real street there, we passed it and went in though Cappy's restaurant, big drop off from the road getting out of there. So if coming here or RV World, go between the gas stations, they have a 'rough road' there to serve as the detour. We only stopped here to play Rochelle Ranch Golf Course, very nice layout. Peppermill Bar & Grill had great Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches served with a dinner salad. We will not be back anytime soon.

Senior rate. CG is sandwiched into a switchback, so the North entrance road runs both below and above it. As noted before, there is lots of road noise here. But the CG is a good bet for larger rigs and is in a great location to explore the north end of Yellowstone NP. We spent 6 nights here, but most sites are taken only for a night so there were plenty of sites early in the day. This area of the park is loaded with elk. We took a day trip up to Beartooth Pass, elevation 10,947. On the Northeast park road we saw two grizzlies, a wolf, two coyotes and tons of bison. The CG's out that way are too small for larger rigs.

Paid nightly rate of $27 plus tax for a 50 amp FU pull through. Very good dependable Wi-Fi and TV via bat wing was very good. Great lineup of DVD's and lots of books in the library for exchange. LP is $2.75 if you stay here. The owners get a solid 10 here, but I think 10 is over rating the place a bit. No big problem with highway or train noise. Our site was very nice, but it is all side by side hookups. Some of which are fairly tight, so it depends on where you end up. The location is great through, just turn left out of the park and it becomes Main St. I-90 provides good access to the stores west at exits 305 & 306. It was also nice to be able to wash our rig. We enjoyed our stay and would come back.

We paid the weekly rate $130.20 for a 50 amp FU nice level pull through, plus $7 for a very good cable TV lineup, and tax for a total of $146.31. Wi-Fi was good, strong and dependable. Lots to see and do in the area, Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic site, the Old Prison Museum, the Montana Auto Museum was awesome, one of the best car lineups that I have ever seen, drove the Pintler Scenic Loop (MT route 1) stopping in historic Philipsburg. We also drove up to Granite Ghost Town. There is also a scenic loop that starts in town near the I-90 overpass, it is the east side circle tour, we do not recommend it. Bad gravel roads and not very scenic at all. Overall a very pleasant stay. Visit Ben's Arena Bar next door, does not look like much outside, but very clean and lots of interesting things on the walls inside.

$31.75 a night reflects Good Sam discount for a 50 amp pull through site. The sites were very nice and roomy. But it was a bit pricey for the area and for 'limited or no connectivity' when trying to use their Wi-Fi. We were able to connect once in our four days, it was OK for a bit and then really bogged down. Verizon broadband was usable, but on the slow side.

Senior rate. $20 is full rate. Water is available at host site in loop A. Dump station also has water, but I watched people dump and then go wash their hands at the potable water fill. Use plenty of bleach if you fill here. Dump station layout is real bad and had a pretty good backup when we were leaving.

Senior rate. Large rigs can access park by coming up MT-49 from US-2. MT-49 has a 21' vehicle restriction north of the park. Note that sites 1 thru 36 are now no generator sites. Very quiet here, no phone, broadband or TV. Could see bears from our site.

$23 is full rate, we paid $11.50 senior rate. Reservations taken and recommended. We could only book 4 nights and could not get any extra nights while here. This place is booked solid in the summer. Great base for seeing the east side of the park. Potable water is at the dump station on the way out. We were able to make the swing around the attendant booth after checking in with no problem. Then a short ride back to the visitor center to turn around. As reviewed, sites can be tight, took some doing to get positioned so our slides could go out.

Senior rate. Spent 6 nights here and loved it. This is the campground referred to in the KOA review. We were right on the lake in a nice large site. All sites first come, first served. But it never filled while we were here. Very quiet at night. No dump station, but the KOA was either $3 or $4 to dump there.

A very nice place to stop on the way to Glacier NP. The women who runs park allows washing and is a very nice person. We had a nice 30 amp full hook with Wi-Fi and cable TV for $27. People in this town are very friendly, we met some very nice folks and would gladly come back to this park. We loved our short stay here.

Small place next to a storage facility. Located within city limits on US-287 (also US-12) near north end of town. A bit tight for our 36' wide body with two slides, but ok for a short stay. Once slide was out, two of three compartments could not be openned due to water / electric hookup location. Laundry and bath area was very clean, rest of park was so so.

$23 was all inclusive for a 30amp full hookup site with Wi-Fi and Catv. Verizon broadband was mostly good, Wi-Fi varied. Owners working on cleaning this place up. Laundry very small, but had 4 brand new machines, 2 of each. Showers, did not use but looked in while waiting on laundry, very, very clean. New gravel on sites. Overall a very nice park for Montana.

Passport rate $16 plus tax = $17.12. Nice level pull through, a bit tight on the side because of a tree: we trimmed it so we could close our door. Good value with PA, a nice easy off / on park. Small friendly town. Verizon cell was so so, no broadband or TV via batwing. We would stop again if passing through.

Golden Age rate. Only two drawbacks here are the generator hours, 8-8. Waiting until 8 am can put a late start on your day. No dump station, but there is a free one down behind an old gas station in front of the Medora Campground. Water hookups are not threaded, but the one on the left when you first come in has a removable nozzle so you can use a hose there. The picnic area is a loop if you need to turn around to get back into the campground.

Agree that it is pricey for the area. 5 loops, 2 with 50 amp hookups. Loops are one way to the left. This puts your curbside facing into the loop. We came in the wrong way so we had a big open area on our curbside. No TV or FM radio signal. One AM station nearby. Verizon broadband was OK.

Passport rate. Mostly OK park, but limited number of 50 amp sites and hookups are side by side. So you could have a neighbor that you could reach out and touch. Shared water via a Y connection. I don't like that on a site with sewer. Wi-Fi was spotty, Verizon broadband varied from slow to usable. Only saw 1 train during our 3 day stay. TV via batwing very strong, but only 4 stations.

Golden Age rate. Great views from Campground. No problems with our 36' wide body motorhome with toad. Two camping loops, Agate and Butte, each with a road down the middle. Agate is the more level of the two loops. Almost all sites are roadside sites (the road widens and you just pull into the widened area). So the sites on the inside of the loop put your steps towards the road. We had a nice outside site and spent 3 nights. Visitor center is in walking distance.

Pricing is $15 for a site, $4 for electric, $1 for water, $1 for sewer, $3 for cable plus 8.5 percent tax. No senior discount. As mentioned before, sites are somewhat tight, but paved with nice grass between them. It was extremely crowded with kids all over on the weekend here. Verizon broadband was good. We would come back but would time it so it was during the week. Campground is north off exit 330, 3 miles to second traffic light then left. It is only a couple of blocks down on the left and just before the lake.

Place is a real dump and not worth the Passport savings. We should have gone to the fairgrounds campground that is one exit north and on the other side off I-29. If you are intent on coming, call first if your in anything over 28'. Very limited sites and they are very very tight. Most of the available sites can handle real small stuff only. Sioux Falls is a very nice city, make sure you visit Falls Park and the downtown area.

Nice little town for a short layover. CG had nice level full hookup sites, good value with Passport America. Verizon cell was strong, but slow broadband due to lack of an EVDO signal. The CG WiFi was very good. TV via batwing was ok. Per earlier reviews the office and laundry are a bit messy and cluttered. Stop at Korte's Bar & Grill on CR 26. Very nice, clean, good food and happy hour 4 - 6. Monday's was $1 burger special. Rose Lake Golf Club in Fairmont was a very nice scenic 18-hole layout.

The June 2009 review now makes sense. Some of the prior 10's must be self reviews or friends. Yes, it is a nice quiet protected valley in a scenic area. Sites are large grass backin's. Water is to the front and we needed 50' of hose. We saw no sewer sites or dump station, showers or laundry. The people here are very friendly. TV via batwing was ok, We had no service for our Verizon cell or broadband. Coming in on 118 make sure you slow way down when you see Maple road, park is near base of a fairly steep grade. We would come back, but would not recommend this for 40' rigs or larger.

10's are a bit strong. We paid PA rate, $45 plus tax is the regular rate for full hookup pull through sites. This section has a bit of grade to it, with double blocks under our front jacks we still were not quite level, both front tires came off the ground. Verizon cell was marginal, no broadband but the WiFi was good. Very quiet at night here.

Very good value with Golden Age. Verizon cell was very spotty, broadband was not usable. TV via Batwing was fair, point it to river first. Potosi Brewery has great food and daily specials. The Grotto in Dickeyville is a must see, no charge, donations only. County road O at WI-133 and US-61 is a very, very scenic drive.

We stayed in back section across the creek. No problem with our 36' wide body MH on the roads. Some sites are a bit tough to back into, but most are angled and easy to access. Some have a slight grade but most are level. We needed both electric cords to reach the post. The electric has been upgraded since the flooding awhile back, but we did have some low voltage at times. This happened 3 afternoons in a row in the afternoon. It was mid-80's and everyone had their AC units running. It was OK after dark and up until noon. No reservations taken all sites are first come first served. It did not fill until the Friday before Memorial Day while we were here. Verizon broadband and cell were excellent, TV via Batwing was fair, only 1 network station CBS. The Bellevue Golf Course Club house further up 395th sits high up on a hill and has a full bar. Great views of the MS river valley even if you don't golf.

We stayed in Bald Eagle CG, jack pads required. $19 reflects $1 senior discount. Sites will handle any sized RV, some have a slight grade but most are very level. Sites are really big in this section. No reservations taken, the Sunday before Memorial Day weekend had people coming in parking their rigs and just leaving them. It was pretty much filled by the Monday before the long weekend. There are also a couple of other campgrounds in this park. One is somewhat dated, but suitable for motorhomes and larger rigs, the others are for smaller units and tents. Verizon broadband and cell were excellent, TV via batwing was also very good.

Sites are $16 reservation, $18 walk ups only, half with Golden Age. The higher numbered sites on the big loop are a little more roomy. All are level and on slabs.

What a nice find. After seeing the prior review we were not sure what to expect. But as we were led back to the campground sites we got a pleasant surprise. As reviewed, the CG is behind a trailer park and is actually on a flood plain. Very, very quiet and scenic here, barges on the IL river which can be seen right from inside our motorhome. We had a nice big long pull through with 50 amps, water and sewer. Breakers are located up on a pole and the electric has been upgraded recently. Our site was good, but a couple of the pull through had some grade to them. The hookups would be better on the opposite side for motorhome's so on these sites, you might want to go in backwards. Great value with Passport America. TV via batwing was pretty good and Verizon cell and broadband were both very good. Visit Full Throttle for a nice happy hour spot, just below US-24 on IA-116.

Very nice county park, but a bit pricey for the area and just electric. We had a not so level pull through site, we reversed direction and were able to level ok. That also allowed us to reach the water, but we used our tank to pump out of. TV reception via batwing was poor, our Verizon cell and broadband were both good. The only real drawback here was the dump station. It is not near the CG, you have to head down to the lake area for it.

As mentioned, it is clean and well run by a very nice couple who own this former KOA campground. Did not use the wi-fi; our Verizon broadband flew here. TV via batwing was good. Campground is more of an 8, but pricey so I gave it a 7.

Golden Age rate for 50 amp electric only. We were in A loop, beware going too far into this end. It gets real tight with steep side roads. Not a good place for MH's or any large rig. This loop is mostly side hill. Lots of slope to the sites. The first site we were assigned had 18" of grade between our axles. Moved to A4 and blocked the front tires. Golden Age discount is a flat $6, or half of a basic no hookup site. Then prices vary by amps, water or not and sewer. Verizon broadband had no signal, cells were usable, but spotty. TV via batwing was mostly good.

One surprise here was our Verizon cells & broadband was excellent, we had no service in spots driving in. TV via batwing was so-so: 3 good stations with not much, networks would come and go. Only big negative was dogs, constant barking from 6 am until 10 pm. There are lots of big dogs in this park.

Golden Age rate for 50 amp and water, all sites are back ins. Disagree with prior review on site size. Yes, a few are tight, most are very nice, some are huge (along the lake). Most sites are off of small circles and the sites pin wheel off vs. being spoke-shaped. This makes it easy to back in. A couple of the circles are close together and as a result, the sites that are in between are tighter. Overall a very nice park, a bit off the beaten path though. Verizon cell was good, broadband was hit and miss, TV via batwing varied by the time of day. Sometimes was good, but then dropping out completely.

TV via batwing mostly ok, Verizon cell good, broadband barely picked up a signal.

Senior rate. This park is somewhat dated, but the hookups worked fine. Roads were being repaved and the lake level appeared OK. Verizon cell and broadband both very good. TV via bat wing picked up a couple of stations, but no networks. Cartoons and travel only. Sites vary here, all are on level slabs, but the grade around the slab can drop off quite a bit. Like a mini ski slope at the bottom of your steps. We had site 61, not lakeside and it was not too bad. Woodalls has this park with a 32' limit, no so. Also the park can be accessed directly from the Natchez Trace, take the marked exit for the park. We came in a weekend and lots of sites were available.

Very nice CG and free. But beware, we came in during the annual French Canadian migration north out of their winter spots. We only got a site because someone saw our FL tags and did not want another French Canadian next to him, we pulled in as the other MH pulled out. 22 sites, but there were 36 RV's one night, most sites 2 deep, some with 3. Handicapped site taken and cones moved from empty host site so they could take it. Car parking area held 2 more, some smaller units on the side of road. Totally out of control, will be writing to the NPS about it. A no hookup in Canada cost us $27.50 and they are taking this place over, lots of them stay a couple of weeks at a time. They have some kind of schedule, as some left on morning another pulled right in.

Passport America rate. We went in for 2 or 3 days and spent 8. This was a nice find. Very quiet area but close to Hattiesburg and stores. Great value for 50 amp back in with water and sewer. New Owners are doing a great job. Our Verizon broadband flew here, TV via Batwing had great reception with about 7 - 8 stations, NBC & CBS were local. The clubhouse / office was nicely redone, pool was being worked on for upcoming season. Sites do fall off towards the lake, just don't back in too far and you will be able to level. Only negative we saw was an area on the road coming in (one way in and out), this area had the 'red' soil and got real slick after a night of rain. Ride the crown if it is wet. Owner was working on grading while we were there and part of the road in has been paved. Mag's across the road on US-49 was a nice little local watering hole. We will stop again if in the area.

Good value with Passport America, they also have good weekly and monthly rates. The previous 10's are high for this place, but the people here do get solid 10's as do the facilities (laundry, bath, rec hall). I would go higher if we had a slab. Place is working on becoming a 10: they are adding a few slabs a year and that would make a big difference. After a night of rain our site was real messy when we got ready to leave. It is a new park and they are doing a great job. Wi-Fi here was good, our Verizon cells worked ok, but broadband would have been a problem. So the Wi-Fi was much needed.

The July 2008 review is good. Sites are $22 plus 9% tax, we paid the $11 FL resident senior rate plus tax. Bath house was brand new, plus all sites here now have sewer and 50amp service. Some sites are not suitable for large rigs (call), we are a 36' MH and were put in site 29, got it with a little bit of work and did not have much breathing room. Other sites are very large and get booked early. Batwing was real iffy and barely watchable. Verizon cell and broadband were also weak. Nice trails for walking. Not much else around, but it was OK here for a two night stay.

Senior rate for a 50 amp & water paved back in site. This park has a 'new campground' and an 'old campground', however the old (probably the original campground) has been redone with new pavement and hookups. All sites are very nice, but most of the pull throughs in the 'new campground' don't work for larger RV's. They are U shaped and deep. We went for a back in instead with our 36' MH. Funny thing with LA state parks, a pull through with 30 amp is considered a premium site while a back in with 50 amp is not and is $2 cheaper.

Passport America rate of $14.50 for a really large pull-through corner lot with 50 amp, water, sewer and Wi-Fi. Bat-wing reception was pretty good as well. Verizon cell and broadband were a bit shaky. But the Wi-Fi was pretty good (using it now). This was a great find for us as we planned on going to Blackwater River SP, but the road going in was flooded and for the first time in over 3 years of full timing we had to unhook our toad and dolly to u-turn. The river is way up now but campsites are high and dry. We will come back.

Senior rate, very good value for a 50 amp, water and Wi-Fi back in site. Bath house was extremely clean. Beware the pull through sites (premium) at this park. There are two camping areas, 1 and 2. Area 2 has 4 pull through sites, they are actually double sites, 20' wide, split down the middle with a white line. Straight out of a KOA horror movie. You need to get both sites to be OK. Area 1 has no official pull throughs, but has some end to end sites that might act like one for shorter rigs. If towing you would have to unhook to free up the other site. Highly recommend calling for info on sites before booking. Per earlier reviews some sites have serious tree issues for larger units / slides. But overall there are plenty of sites that are very nice. We would come back.

Outstanding value with senior discount. Big paved back in sites. 50 amp, water and wi-fi. Batwing reception was pretty good, Verizon broadband excellent. We took the Algiers ferry into the French Quarter on this stay versus driving. The ferry is the way to go. Approximately 10 miles to city that way. Sites on back side of the loops from bath houses better suited for people who use their own baths / showers. A bit quieter in these sites. All sites are very close in size, so that doesn't matter in site selection. We will be back again.

Follow signs to GINS. Most sites are on one large loop and very level. There is one side road with 15 additional sites, some have a bit of grade to them. Grade drops off in back of site.

Park has taken some very positive steps since our stay last year (rated it 7). The sewer hookups have been set in concrete, the electric is being upgraded and a new laundry room was being built. Our sites electric was upgraded while we were there. We had returned even though we knew about the electric issues. We use a surge protector (PT50C) to prevent any damage to our rig. As far as the last review of 1, anyone who can level a 30' rig here is either drunk or has no clue to what they are doing. We still love the area and will be back again.

Hookups were good and had been upgraded within the past few years. We had 30amp, water, sewer and cable TV for $16. A couple of sites would work as a pull-through, but most sites are back-in.

One flat rate, no discounts. $30 tax included for 50amp, water, sewer, Wi-Fi, cable TV and a very large pull through site. This is the best park in the area and is just off 303 which runs near I-95. You either exit north (southbound) and pickup 303 and head south or vice verse. We took a day trip out to Jekyll Island, $5 parking fee required just to get on the Island. GA park passes are not accepted. The campground out here was not nearly as nice as Blythe Island and daily parking fee still applies.

Site basically level, but lots of surface roots. There are some very nice sites if you know which ones they are. Went to wash my hands in the bathroom, no soap dispenser in it??? Could not see where it might have been, no sign of where it could have been broken off the wall. The park itself is very nice.

We need more places like this. $25 for 30 amp or $30 for 50 amp full hookup site with Wi-Fi. Half that for Passport America, 7 days a week with a 5 night limit based on availability. No add on fees for anything. Great owners. It is OK to wash RV, propane $3 gallon. I watched the owner come to sites and pickup the smaller removable tanks, go fill them and bring them back and hook it back up. That is customer service. This place is super clean, sites are roomy and level with choice of shade or sun. Harbor Freight has a location 1 exit south and Kintyre House in Dillon is a nice Grill & Tavern. We will be back whenever we next pass through.

Tough call rating this place, I am giving it a positive rating as we enjoyed our week here. But this place is not for everybody. OK for singles and or couples, would not recommend it for families. As mentioned in other review, self contained units only. It is sort of a fish camp type place, but not bad. A couple of units had guys that showed up on the weekend only to fish. It is located 11 miles south of New Bern off of US-70. $20 a night or $100 for a week, solid 50 amp, water and sewer. Sites were grass, but solid ground and level. We had no problems in this very quiet area and considered it a very good value. The only problem was our Verizon cell phones and broadband were at the edge of reception. They worked, but not great. We would come back if in the area.

Could not give this place a positive rating. Yes the sites are level and clean. The side by side hookups can have you on top of your neighbor, especially the pull throughs. Owners must have worked for either KOA or a bank. Extra fees are out of control here: $4.50 a day for Wi-Fi, $5 for a pull through, $2 for 50 amps, $2 for cable TV, $2 for an electric golf cart, $7.50 to wash an RV, $5 for a fire ring or buy their wood? Never in 3 years of full timing have we seen anything like that. People who charge for a fire ring are not friendly people. LP for $4 a gallon plus tax, $2 wagon rides in the fall. This place should call themselves 'show me the money' or 'thats extra'. We will never come back.

Full rate $38 less $2 senior discount for non-resident. This place in no 10, but is a solid value for the area. Boaters and fishermen might go higher on rating. The 50amp plugs in our area were not working, I checked others and it seemed like 50 to 30 amp pigtails were the norm. That was the back area of the park, the front area might have been OK with 50 amp service. Walking to the beach you need to watch out for the people fishing, they just cast without checking behind them and take up the entire walkway as well. Beach was OK.

Golden age rate paid, $20 is regular rate. All sites are level and paved. Oceanside loops are all backin's. Bayside has some pull throughs and double wide sites. Bayside loop B is a no generator loop. All others have quiet hours of 10pm till 6am. No problems with biting insects while we were here, but the flies were all over the place and in the MH. Bring some fly tape with you. Ponies were all over the place, including one of them sticking their head into our toad and eating just outside our door. Also check the visitor center: good movies at no cost. We also attended two of the Ranger programs: "Sea" S.I. Assateague and Horsing around at Assateague. Several others available as well: Surf Fishing Demo, Aquarium Feeding, Happy as a Clammer, Beautiful Swimmers, Beach on the Move and Life of the Dunes Walk. We will be back.

This park is a solid 8. $35 plus tax and a $5 reservation fee for a nice big 50 amp, water, sewer and limited cable TV site is a good rate when compared to the commercial parks along the Delmarva coast. We do not boat or fish, but there are some excellent walking trails here, a butterfly garden and lots of bird watching opportunities here. Also, there's about a mile of coast just inside the mouth of the bay. The bay bridge can be seen from the coast. We would come back.

The $30 reflects a large group rate. We came in for a large rally of approximately 180 Bounders. Had a great time. The management here did a wonderful job and the food was excellent. Restrooms were very clean whenever we stopped at one. Wi-Fi was pretty robust for a place this size. I did not go with a 10 because of the grass sites, some which looked like they could be a problem during or after heavy rains.

$30 is full rate, paid $15.75 Passport America taken on weekdays. The 9's and 10's are high, but the owners do get a 10 and the place is a 10 for value during the week. It is a bit off the beaten track, 4.3 miles off of US-301 which is fine. But from I-95 it is a bit of a distance. Not much around at all, but a very nice place for some R and R. We would come back again when traveling US-301.

$28 is full electric rate. The July 2009 review is a very descriptive review. Nice state park, but some sites are not suitable for MHs due to the incline. We asked and were allowed to drive through and pick a site first. Just beware that making the swing from the exit road to entrance is very tight. Bat-wing reception and Verizon broadband were very good in D loop.

We came in just after Labor Day. Full rate is $46, but weekdays with Passport America it is $23 and a very solid value for this area. Park rates more of a 7, but the 8 is for value. Just check the other park rates. Our water and electric was good. We use a PT50C to monitor incoming power and had no problems. Great location to base your sightseeing. We would come back.

Very nice and clean town run park. Great value. Take your time picking a site, sites are paved, gravel or grass. Hookups may be side to side (your door faces your neighbors door), you might need to pull into a back in site (hookups on left) or some pull throughs have electric on 1 side and water on the other. But it works OK. Washing vehicles is allowed. A very layer back place to relax for a few days. Take exit 65 off of NY 12 and follow signs (straight across at traffic light near McDonalds).

$30 is the full rate: Passport America accepted Mon - Thu. We came in expecting just to take advantage of the PA rate and were pleasantly surprised. As mentioned this is a combo mobile home / RV park. The mobile homes are neat and well kept, this is a very quiet and nice park. We ended up staying for 9 nights. Great base to explore the many things to see or do in the 1000 Islands Region. We had no problems leveling (we two other class A's to our side, one a 42' Monaco) or with the electric. We had a solid 50 amp connection. Verizon broadband was great and we got several US stations with the batwing. Not much for kids here, mostly older folks. We will come back.

We did not stay here, but did check it out. Wished we had stopped here instead of Cole Creek State Park. You drive through the Eisenhower tunnel under the lock (13' 6") to get to the park. The lock has a nice visitor center (free) and raises or lowers ships 42 feet. Very interesting to see. The campground is large and spread out over two different areas. Water is located throughout the park. There is a nature center here (free) and a dam with a power plant and visitor center (free) nearby. Much more here for active people. Massena is a good sized city with everything you need.

Ok but busy state park. Most have good electric, water is located throughout park. We were on loop B, a no pets loop. Online shows this loop with an equipment length of 20 feet. Some of the sites can handle up to a 40 foot rig, but not many. While basically level, this park has 'rolley polley' sites, looks like they were back fill that was spread out without really being graded. So you kind of need to know which sites are good, which are bad. They were nice enough to allow us to drive through and pick a site from a list of sites that they gave us. This was on a Friday after we called to verify that they had sites available. Loop A has the best sites. All sites are grass except for 5 or 6 down at the end of a dead end road. Nice family park right on the St. Lawrence Seaway. TV reception was bad, only a couple stations from Canada. Verizon broadband was slow, phones ok.

$42 is full price: then the Passport rate of $21. This is a busy and noisy place. We were on the Island Circle which made it worse. Sites within the loop are quieter. Mowers or weed wackers were used 4 of the 5 days in our area. The golf course is a joke if you are half serious about the game. It's a nine-hole par 3 course, real slow greens, no traps or water. Add some clueless people and it was more like torture playing it. We would go back but would ask for a site inside the loop and only on Passport days.

This place is a solid 7 maybe an 8. Passport America accepted Sun - Wed. Sites are all grass and could pose a problem after a lot of rain. No over the air TV reception, but sites are open and most people have dishes. Our Verizon broadband was real fast here, they have Wi-Fi. Excellent book swap and two very clean washers ($1) and dryers (25 cents per 12 minutes). Good place for a drink and something to eat is the Oak Ridge Golf course 5 minutes away. Nice 9 hole layout.

Passport America rate. We had a nice long level pull through with 30 amp and water. They have a limited number of sewer sites, but they are all back in sites and wooded. Only 1 or 2 are suitable for large MHs. Very nice and clean place. Only real drawbacks for us were that our Verizon cell phones and broadband would not get signals here. Phones worked nearby, tho. The Wi-Fi was not working while we were here, we could get a strong signal but it was not responding out through the cable on the other side of the router.

Review is for Area 2, 30 amp and water only. Non-resident rate of $25, resident is $18. Sites are somewhat short for a motorhome and toad. Some of the sites have a hedge that can impact slides. We spent some time here and a couple of times had low voltage problems (under 80 volts). Our surge protector cut power to our rig so we had no damage, problem was fixed the next day.

Per earlier review, this place is better than some reviews indicate. We paid $27 for a 20 amp and water site. The 20 amp was the only negative for us, the site was in back in the tent area. Nice and private, this was Memorial Day WE and we called a day ahead. Our site was about 45' deep and very wide. I am not sure about the pull thrus here, I didn't not notice any. Park is OK for up to 40', but call ahead.

Outstanding management and park. We were part of a Rally group and they did an incredible job for our group. Would highly recommend this park for people traveling with children.

Senior rate. 10 based on no sewer. The dump station is well laid out and has two stations. You can dump and reverse back into the site loops with no problems. Golf course is pricey. With our Golf Card discount ($6 each), a weekday round with cart for two was $63. Ironwood Golf Club just south was $50 for two. On Tuesdays and Thursdays they had a $25 dollar special of golf all day with cart (no Golf Card required for the special).

Passport rate of $23.50. Most sites are either permanent or seasonal. They did have quite a few available for short term stays. We had a somewhat tight pull through grassy site. Overall place is well kept. People were not all that friendly. We were between two perm/seasonal sites so I don't think they care for transients. They was a better area where the sites were all short term sites. We would stay again if in the area.

Park gets a 3 because of dump station location. Park itself is more of a 7 borderline 8. We left on a weekday and the line at the dump station prevents you from being able to leave. You have to wait in the line just to get by it. We did not dump and asked someone in the other line (yes two different lines) if they could let us pass. So either plan on leaving really early or late. I would not want to be anywhere near this place on a Sunday.

Nice clean park where everything works good. The only thing spotty was the Wi-Fi from the sites. Very robust up in the service room where they have free coffee and tea.

Passport America rate. My wife would give this place a 10, and some sections are. We were in Regal Ridge which is an older section. While very nice, I feel that this part of the complex is on the downside. Per other reviews, the Tiki Bar is fun and people very nice. Golf course was ok, it is an executive course with slow greens. We would come back.

Passport Rate of $27.25 paid, NOTE PA can only be used here once. We would never come back and pay double what we paid. Previous review is pretty much on. There are a couple of sites that 'work like pull throughs' and we had one. Nothing in this area at all to justify the full $50+ nightly rate. If you are PA and need a spot for a minimum 2 nights or up to 7 nights, go with the two and keep on truckin.

Passport America. Note this is not a resort, it is a small friendly park next to Orange Lake. Can accept rigs up to 42'. Some people might drive in and out. We however found it to be a nice place and great value, 50 amp, water, sewer and cable TV for $11 plus tax. Was told that they have Wi-Fi, our Verizon broadband worked great. Only a limited number of sites. We came in for 3 days and spent 5. Had a 40' Newmar with 4 slides next to us to us for the first couple of nights, they come often as they have family in the area. A 37' Phaeton with double slides was on our other side. McIntosh is a neat little town, a mix of live oak and tall palms with lots of moss hanging down. Not much right here for stores, food, etc. One small market in down. But it is midway between Ocala and Gainesville. This park is not for everyone, but we would come back.

Passport rate of $14.50 + $2 for Catv. Overall the park should be an 8, our site 317 was a dog and would rate it a 3 - 4 for a motor home. Steping in dog droppings while positioning the coach didn't do much for my mood. The park attendant who parked us had us backup until we touched tree branches, but our bedroom slide could not extend without going into tree limbs. We pulled forward to move away from limbs. The front wheels were 3-4" off the ground when we leveled the RV. We did not hookup to water or sewer (it doesn't flow uphill). But, they do have some very nice large sites. Baths / laundry were great, that is why the rating is 6 versus 3-4. People were fairly friendly and area not bad.

Place is way overrated unless you have kids or a small RV. For large MH's & 5th's, the layout is a potential nightmare. 6 long rows of end to end sites, 7 per row. Sharp mounds between rows, our step opened to a steep mount side slope making entering and exiting our MH tricky. Depending on your site, exiting may require that you cut across the mound from one row to another to get out. Tail swing and side to side sway become an issue. Some sites are OK, but the ones in the middle are not good for quick overnight stays. The $5 Wi-Fi is a joke, but Verizon broadband worked well, staff friendly and help you park and setup. They have to or this place would not work at all because of the layout. They do a pretty good of spreading folks out, but I would not want to be anywhere near this place when it is full. Exit as mentioned is a nightmare.

Passport America $10 + $1 for Cable TV that had two HBO channels. We had a 30 amp P/T site with water & cable TV. Did not use the Wi-Fi, Verizon broadband was excellent. There is nothing fancy here, just a great value and really friendly people. Park might offend some, but not us. After coming in the entrance and registering, they then have you use the exit to come and go. Dump station is on the exit, so it is a weird setup. However, the traffic volume is low and it works. We would not have a problem coming back. Great park for couples with no kids, and for people just looking for some R n R.

Passport America rate of $20 all inclusive for 50amp, water, sewer, Wi-Fi & Cable TV. Park is mostly trailers and 5th's, 30 sites taken with them but no one around. It's pretty much a fish camp where they leave the trailer and boat for weekend / non-winter use. There are 6 back-in sites right against the gulf, sites are deep enough for any rig, but sort of tight, 20-22' wide. We spent 5 nights here, first 4 were good. But on the last night a 5th parked in site next to us and then crammed his tow vehicle between our MH and his 5th. Could not access our outside compartments, but we were leaving anyway. Not much here. We would come back but would make sure that we were next to another MH or empty trailer.

PA rate. This park should easily be an 8, or a possible 9. Two big drawbacks are the laundry and baths. We did not need the baths but heard a lot of complaints about them. The laundry room was pretty bad, we only used it once in our 35 days there. We ended up doing all of ours in our MH's small unit. Mexico Beach gets a solid 10, worth the visit. Beautiful beaches, go just west onto Tyndall AFB and take Orchid Beach RD, great day use area open to the public. The people in this small city are very friendly, it a very low crime area and we loved our stay there. We will be back for sure. Hopefully the park mgmt will get some much needed updates made. There are not many other options in this area.

Passport America rate for 50amp, full hookup P/T site. Not much to this place, the RV Park is set behind a MHP. It is a neat well kept park with no trashy yards. Behind the RV Park is a detention center, high razor topped fence. We had no security issues through, overall a nice safe area. Verizon cell was fine, but the broadband was really bad, dial up speed. This park is an OK stop for a night or two, probably would allow washing if you asked.

$18.40 senior rate paid. The park is a 10, I hedged between an 8 and a 9 because of the campground. Some of the sites are big, beautiful level sites, others are real dogs if you are in a motorhome. A lot have some pretty severe grades to them. We pulled into site 5, a 50amp pull through with sewer, it had at least 1 foot of drop front to back between our jacks. We took a 30amp backin with no sewer instead. Only spent 1 night because of the cold, did not get to play the course. However, we did go to breakfast over at the lodge. Excellent buffet for about $6.50.

$18.40 senior rate paid for 50amp, water and sewer putt through. Real nice long level site. This is a smaller state park compared to other state parks we have stayed in. Very quiet in early December here. It is worth coming just for the golf course. Was 9 holes, but has been expanded to 18. The original 9, now holes 1 - 7 and then 17 & 18 are typical of this region, rolling fairways and pine trees. The new nine, 8 - 16 are like they are in a different country. From the 7th green you go a good 1/2 mile (or more) to get to these holes. They were put in a hay field, wide open links style holes. Very nice. We would have stayed longer but it has been a very cold fall in the east.

$18.50 Passport America weekday & $23.50 Holiday rate for 30amp and water. We spent 5 nights. Did not bother with sewer or 50amp to save the extra surcharge. Not a bad park, set back away from the road and had minor train noise. Vehicle washing is allowed with permission. Only thing to watch for the are low spots when setting up, after a rain there can be lots of fairly deep puddles. We had one just behind our steps and next to the car door, 4-5 inches deep. So it was socks off and Crocs on when we were leaving. Verizon cell was good, broadband ok but a bit slow.

Good Sam rate, nice thing about this park is that they dropped all nightly rates to $27 except for the sites with concrete pads (+$5 per night). We stayed in the section down by the ocean, very nice and sunny. We had stopped at the state park first, but all the sites are shaded. We were here during a cold snap and had one morning of 25 degrees, so we wanted sun. We had a P/T, 50amp, water, sewer and cable TV. Cable TV hookup was a male cable end, I called the office and they had someone there right away who fixed the box, and also the boxes on either side as well. Good pro active move. Great security, gate was staffed at all times and a pass needed to get in. Also, they collected the pass when we left. Did not ever have to get out of our motor home, he came to the window for us.

This place should be a 10 for a no hookup park. But the reservation systems is wacky. Online you can book 3 nights in advance, not tonight or tomorrow which is fine. But when you arrive and the site is open both nights you can only book tonight, then go back after 9:30 am to book the next night. As a result, people who come in during the week with no reservations are jumping from site to site. Way too much moving around for no reason at all. Weekends are booked solid. $7.50 to book online, worth it if spending several nights, but if passing through and would like to spend a couple of weekdays, beware.

$22.50 with Good Sam. Park allows use of 1 discount card only. Passport is limited to 3 nights, cannot use it and then Good Sam. As stated just a big flat gravel lot with the killer curb cut at the entrance. Need to really really take it slow or you will have stuff flying all over the place. Hard to do with the way the traffic flys by. Double check directions, Trailerlife had us taking a left on a closed off road, watch for the small signs, take the first right after you see the fairgrounds. We would only stop again if we had too. Not very impressed with the area.

This place is better than a 5, only real drawbacks are the sites are tight and no wi-fi. It is in a safe, easy to access location, we were originally only going to spend a night, but stayed for 4. $22 is SKP, $23 Good Sam or $25 full rate, that is for a full hookup site with 50 amp in CA!!! Downtown area is lovely, visit/walk the Oak Street area two blocks west of State St. (State is the main drag through town), visit Cheesecake Momma's for some wonderful cheesecake, voted number 1 online cheesecake by the NY Times, they are good. Also, a very interesting place is the City of 10,000 Budda's, make sure you take the time to go into the Temple of 10,000 Budda's, very interesting and different to say the least. There was no charge to visit.

This place is no 8 unless you are in and out for one night. Beware the electric here, we use a surge protector for the entire coach, thank God. The power was fine at first, but I do not hookup right away as we needed to work the genset for an hour or so. When I checked the 50 amp the voltage was ok and I clicked off the breaker. The 30 amp breaker was on so I clicked it off as well. Somehow the two hot feeds into the breakers must have touched, after running the genset when I went to hookup the shore power I was getting 250+ volts hitting the surge protector, which did not allow power to go through. We used the genset that night and in the morning the wires seemed to have moved apart because the voltage was fine. The second big item is the traffic, overnight it is very quiet here. But there are horse stables that are only accessed by driving through the campground, and man could they fly though all day long. CG was almost empty so they might slow down a bit if it was busier. Not a place for kids to be outside playing. But as mentioned the rate is good and the area is safe, just beware the electric.

One of the best State Parks we have stayed in. We were in the front area with ocean views and some sun during the day. We had the cable, but no sewer. The sewer sites are in back, we came in for a couple of days and stayed for 8. Could have stayed a couple of more but the fog seemed to have gotten stuck over the coast. Park is a good place to use as a base for sighting both to the north and south. We drove into the Redwoods twice from here, plus a trip into Cresent City, CA.

Passport rate of $14.50 plus $1 tax paid. The park is a 5/6 kind of place. There are mostly older trailers here, but overall appearance of park is neat versus trashy. People were nice enough and pretty much kept to themselves. Owner / mgr here is very nice and will give you lots of suggestions on what to see and do in the area. We were in one of the two pull throughs and they were nice sites with good hookup connections. Two words of caution, mapping software is wrong. This is two blocks west of 101 on 9th. It is not down Coast Guard Hill road per mapping software. Also, figure on unhooking your toad. It is a hard turn getting out. We pulled in with our 36' Motor Home with toad on dolly, but put car on after getting out.

Per other reviews, this is a real solid value. Park is on the borderline of 9/10. Management goes out of the way to make your stay great. Spend a week and if you decide to go monthly ($350) they will give you credit for the week paid. We ended up staying 12 nights. Golf course is nice, a mid range course. Some really pretty holes that setup nicely and other holes that have you wondering what the heck they were thinking. Avoid the pizza place nearby, terrible pizza. We found a nice little tavern in Oakland, the historic Oakland tavern that had great sub style sandwiches. Big enough for two, plus happy hour 4 - 6 daily. The only drawback was the smokers, but Oregon is going smoke free next year.

Passport rate $13.50 plus tax. Very nice combo RV / Mobile Home park. Not many RV sites so I would call first. Saw a couple of people come in and get turned away. We are right behind the office in a row of 6 nice long level pull-throughs. Site is 30 amp, water, sewer, Cable TV, and excellent Wi-fi. At mile post 195 on US-101, just south of Old Town Florence. Access to the National Dunes NRA is nearby. Outstanding value for the Passport America rate. We would stay again.

Nice park on the water in Old Town Florence. You can walk to the Old Town district which is nice. All sites are back-ins, although some people pull in so they had the water view. Sites are good sized for the location. Nice quiet location.

Another nice Oregon state park. Lots of trees as mentioned. Only drawback was the layout. The loops keep going deeper and deeper into the woods. This is good and bad. Adds quite a bit of time just getting all the way to the back of the park where we were. Hence a very long walk back out to the beach. But good for peace and quiet.

Not a bad little park. It is 3 miles off of US-101 to the park office and then .5 miles down the gravel drive to the campground which is right on the river. This gravel drive is probably the mud that was mentioned, it is a good gravel road and leads only to the campground / marina which is all the same owners. It goes through a pasture, with cows, llamaa, and a couple of goats too. Very nice effect. Had coyotes wake us one morning (5:15 am) and saw an elk track on our way to the Sunday breakfast they put on. This alone is worth coming for. $6 per person, includes coffee, juice, pancakes, bacon, sausage, eggs, and probably something else that I'm forgetting. An outstanding breakfast.

Very nice and clean, only real drawback was the sites were very narrow. We could not access all of our outside compartments. There is a hedge type tree line between sites which is good and bad. It is good for a little privacy, but makes the site tight. As mentioned they accept PPA, 1 night Mon - Thur only. Wi-fi is a buck for the code, but good for the duration of your stay. We ended up staying 4 nights. Make sure that you go into Castle Rock and see the visitor center. Well worth the time and just a couple of miles away on the other side of I-5.

A small state park not too far south of Seattle. We spent two nights with another couple and took day trips into Seattle. Park was so so. We had 36' and 40' MH's with slides and several sites (5 - 6) can handle big rigs. Unhook in the big lot and check for a site first. One draw back was that there were people living here. They were nice enough and we had no problems. Not much else in the Seattle area so we would probably do it again.

So stop on your way by, not a lot in town. Small store, gas, and sign post forest. A couple of our crew had oil changes at Camper Services and were very pleased with the owner and service (he came in on a Sunday for them).

Very close to everything. Add sewer and I would have given it a 10. We were in the inside loop where the sites are gravel. Not very long, but plenty wide and with space between sites. There are also some sites in the paved area near the boat ramp. I liked ours better, but they had the really great views. However, we only needed to take a couple of steps to get the views.

It is also the first one that allows rig washing on site. We washed the car only as we are heading back down through more construction when we leave. We have been walking to pretty much everything and have not needed our toad yet. We will use it to go back up to the waterfalls and the old Valdez location, and to see the pipeline terminal.

Not sure of rate, we were part of a caravan. Not a bad, little park. As mentioned the owners are wonderful people, and put on a great Steak / Crab fry for us. Both were outstanding. But this is a very tight little park. You will be ok as long as there is not a caravan there. We just packed our 22 rigs into the place. About half of us then depended on other rigs leaving first. It is that tight, but a nice little place to spend a night on the way in or out of Homer.

$45 is posted rate, we were part of a caravan. Other recent reviews hit it pretty much on the head. Great views, but a tight park. Took a little work to level. We got our Wi-Fi through a free network, something like SPITwSPOTS. Spit as in the Homer Spit, worked pretty good but will kick you off after an hour. It is provided by Homer. There are also lots of HOMER networks that we could get, but they all charged. Laundry here is 4 washers / 4 dryers. If you are on your own and self contained, go right down on the Spit and see if you can get into the muni campground there. $10 no hookups. There was also a small CG with electric only for $20. The Spit is where all the action is and there are lots of places down there. Watch out for the one high end park that was $80 a night and almost empty while we were here. 11 in our group did the half day halibut fishing and all had there 2 fish limit before 10:00 am.

As posted before, the electric is very spotty. We have a surge protector that protects us. That is a must have, not just hear but pretty much everywhere north of the lower 48.

Overall it is a pretty nice park, but most sites are not very level. I saw more motorhomes with the tires elevated off the ground that I have ever seen in one park (this is not good for the MH frame as it stresses it too much). Per other reviews, sites are tight. Not many alternatives in Dawson Creek, this is probably one of the best if not best park in town. A word of caution is to call ahead, a lot of caravans start from this point. We were in one and came in three days early, 4 different caravans were here. Dawson Creek is wonderful, go into town and walk around. Check out the murals all over, make sure to check the alley next to the Alaskan Inn (55 paces south of mile post 0) and walk to the end of it. With a Safeway card and food purchase you get a 7 cent per liter discount on fuel.

Not a bad municipal campground. Only problem we had was low voltage on both mornings we were there. About the time everyone is getting up and about. It only lasted a short time, we have a surge device that monitors incoming power for problems and it shut us off both mornings. But that was the only time. The pull through site we had, 42, was huge, you could have put two motorhomes in it. Staff was very friendly.

Sites are big with updated hookups. This place does have some wacky rules (see review rating of 1), but they must have new mgmt running the place. The women who checked us in was wonderful and the man running the office was also very friendly. It is the owner who made the rules, he was around but seemed to keep out of the day to day affairs. Rules: no ATV's or Motorcycles, no mud left on site, $100 fines for trash left or dog doo, remove outdoor footware in bathrooms and laundry room. Some are ok, but the overall impression is not of a friendly place. Plus the gravel road was pretty bad, but very quiet once you got here.

Per earlier reviews, this is an older park and the sites can be tight. We went in with no reservations with no problems, but no hookups which is fine. During checkin we were told all of the sites with hookups get fully booked early and were booked solid until mid-Sept. The one problem is that the park is actually too big, as a result there is a lot of heavy traffic. Most of it going much too fast. The campground loop roads were in poor / fair condition. Not one of the better National Park Campgrounds, but ok.

This review is for what they call 'partial hookup sites'. These are not, repeat not sites. It is an area with some gravel spread about, a couple of 20 amp outlets and water. Tree branches have not been trimmed to a level that allows a class A or 5th wheel to pass by. $35 bucks for this so called site. Per earlier review, the newer sites nearby are tight, real tight and $52 a night. It is a resort, and if you do get a larger site and have kids, you should be ok. This is not a place to spend a night when passing through.

Golden Age rate of $7.50 + $5 for electric. Another great Corps of Engineers (COE) Park. Sites are much larger than what the online park map would have you believe. We were in site 48, web site said equipment length of 40' for it, our 36' plus car fit in with plenty of extra room. Sites that specified equipment length of 35' can usually handle rigs in the 37'-38' range with no problems. Plenty of extra room on most sites for picnic table and fire rings. We spent a week and really enjoyed it.

Arrived May 23rd for a month, pay May monthly rate of $545 for the month, tax included. Great rate for a resort like this. In our 1.5 years of full timing, we have never seen sites as big. Full concrete level pads with patio. Slides do not overhang, very lush grass between sites. The 'small' golf course is really a regulation 18 hole course and very nice. Carts can also be rented for 3 days. Other than golf and relaxation there is not much else around. Deer Park is small, appx. 3,000 people. But a very nice small town, friendly people, a very safe area. Resort is gated, we left our MH for a week to visit family back in RI. We would come back.

Passport America rate of $13.50. This is a nice small park right on the Salmon River. Big wide back in sites for large rigs. Tent sites are right next to river. Very very scenic area, some incredible views in this part of Idaho. Often referred to as the American Alps and we could see why. Office and lodge room appeared to be in excellent condition and well cared for. Great place to escape from the outside world, we had no cell phone, TV (bat wing), radio (car & RV) reception at all. If traveling in a large rig or motor home, come in the back way past Swiftwater RV Park, US-95 mile 222, follow this road past Swiftwater untill you come to this park. The White Bird exit directions would send you to a bridge with a 10 ton limit.

Outstanding resort. Concrete pads, roads all paved and in excellent condition. Lush grass between sites and around perimeter. No dust or gravel areas to be found. It abuts the marina and river. Something that I have never seen is dual hookups for the sites. We had our choice as to which way we pulled into the site, the site actually has four sewer drains to pick from, two on each side, front and back. Electric, water and cable are also on both sides. WiFi is very strong from site. This is without a doubt one of the top parks in the area. We drove by a couple of others and they do not compare.

Nice park in a very quiet area with one exception. They have a few spots across from the dumpsters that had noisy. So if staying you might want to avoid sites 51 - 54 or 55.

Wi-Fi is very robust, the best we have had in quite awhile.

Nice little state park. They were in the process of making new sites, most of which are full hookups. I thought it was a bit pricey given the area. Campground is around the back half of a man-made lake. Was told the fishing is good and we saw one guy fishing both days we were there. Behind the campground is a pretty nice 18 hole golf course. The greens will test you. Park is just off of US-89 in central Utah. South of here 89 passes between Bryce Canyon NP and Zion NP, so this park could be a good stopping off point.

Some of the previous comments are out of line. Yes, it is expensive. Trash cans did fill on Sunday, but were emptied every other day of week. Park is mostly closed on Sunday (this is Utah, almost everything closes on Sunday), but the pool, laundry, lounge, exercise room were all open for use. The road coming in is all of 24' wide, we have a big rig at 102" wide and had no trouble getting in or out. Only a few spots have branches that could possibly interfere with a rig. At 12'10" it is something that we look at, and we had no trouble at all. They do have an overnight area for the one nighters that is gravel. We found the people around use to be very friendly. We were in the process of backing into our site and we were welcomed to Utah before even getting parked. The Wi-Fi is on the slow side, but the lounge has a couple of network connections that can be used.

Golden Age rate. Not one of the better National Parks that we have been in, but considering the location it wasn't bad at all. Death Valley is a really big place, 3.4 million acres. Our only mistake was forgetting to fill our toad. Gas is available here but, 60 - 70 (cents per gallon) over the going rate back in Pahrump. Our pull through was nice and level, a very large site, #62. You just have to watch out when the wind blows. Keep everything closed, because it takes dusty to a new level. We played 18 holes at the Furnace Creek Golf Course; a very nice course for the location, water hazards and all. Coyotes running around all over the course. Besides the gas station and golf course, they also have a store, cafe, saloon, post office, sit down restaurant, etc.

Passport America rate. Last couple of reviews are nit picky. Dusty yes, it's the Southwest and dusty everywhere. We had no trouble leveling. The sites are a bit tight for big rigs though. The red line was no problem. It just pulls you past your neighbor, so it is a modified side by side hookup. We did not pull all the way up to the line, but stopped so as to keep our steps on the patio (mid entry rig). As already mentioned it is very close to casinos. Great place to stop on the way into Death Valley.

Golden Age rate. It just doesn't get any better than this. Even without the electric I would still give it a 10. Incredible views in every direction. We spent 5 nights and loved it. This park in the opposite of the Grand Canyon or Bryce Canyon. Here you are down by the river and look up at everything, versus being on top and looking down or into the canyon. We took a day trip to Bryce Canyon, appx. two hours. It was a good 30 degrees colder at Bryce than at Zion that day. You go from 3950 elevation up to over 9000 so it is a big difference.

It is not a high end park by any means, but clean and in a good area. This is Utah farm country. The park is nestled between a horse field and a cow pasture and that worked just fine for us. Better than being behind a large box store. We would stay here again.

Very easy to find; I-15 exit 343 and it is on the west side of I-15. Wi-Fi is mostly poor, acceptable mid-day, very slow both in mornings and later in day. Only drawback is the side by side hookups, we had a new neighbor every night. This is actually a good location for visiting SLC, the train station is a short 5 minute drive. We took the Frontrunner (commuter train) into SLC; $10 round trip and a nice 1 hour ride. Very modern and clean. Once in SLC you can just hop on the TRAX (trolley or light rail system). It is now free in the downtown area. SLC has a very modern and friendly mass transit system. There really are not many RV park options in the greater SLC area for people with large rigs. For us it was either here or in Provo.

There are no hook ups here, toilets only. Nightly rate is $10, $5 with Golden Age pass. Very nice landscaping in the campground. Great low cost alternative to Las Vegas area, but it is only 10 miles to Boulder Hwy which will take you to the downtown area of Vegas. This campground does not take reservations, we had no trouble finding a site on a Saturday morning. There is also a couple of other campgrounds with the NRA, Boulder campground is also no hookups and much larger. We drove through with our car. Woodall's had said it had a 30' limit, not so.

Good Sam rate for 30 amp FHU with cable. There is wi-fi, but we could not get on. Very limited capacity, you might be able to get on near the router, but not from your RV. The 30 amp sites are side by side hookups. Interesting thing is 3 20 amp breakers for the two 30 amp plugs. So you either plug in to a live outlet or turn off the power to the other site. Other than that, very nice people and a clean well kept park. Roswell was a big disappointment.

Row D has nice sized pull thru's. A and B rows are much tighter, ok if every other is empty. We are not traveling with kids, but this is a great place for family's, big game room, pool table, ping pong, lots and lots of maps on the walls, lots of stuff for kids to do here.

Also stopped on the Comanche first, they were full.

Review is for the 100 site park run by the National Park Service. The 10 rating is for a park with no hookups of any type. It just doesn't get much better than this, incredible views everywhere you look. Hiking trails all over. We had been able to reserve 3 nights in the reserve generators allowed area. First morning there we jumped into the no reservation area when someone pulled out. Spent 9 nights total. Big Bend is big and you need at least 3 days to even get a taste of it. A week is better. The sites are well spaced in the no hookup park, plenty of room all around our rig. People either love it or don't. For some, no phone, TV, hook ups, etc. is not for them. For us this was an incredible experience not to be missed.

We were very impressed with this place, good value for the money. $25 less Good Sam discount of $2.50, paid $22.50 all inclusive. W/E50amp/S Wi-Fi and Cable. Cable included HBO and Cinamax. Don't see that very often. Good place to fill the water tank before heading into Big Bend. From here you are 90 miles from the Rio Grande Village. They now have a small cafe here that is open for breakfast Thurs - Mon mornings only. Great breakfast too. Very nice courtyard and sitting area near cafe.

Golden Age rate, $4 is full rate. This is dry camping only, there are port-o-johns though. Great spot for a night or a few. Not sure of the exact number of sites, but there are about 24. They are 'pull up' sites, meaning you park on either side of the road, next to a covered picnic table at each site. Also with a trash can. We spent a night here on our way to Big Bend NP. Del Rio is a good place to stock up on supplies for Big Bend, gas, food, etc. Very small towns west of here.

Passport America rate with no restrictions. We spent 15 nights here, good location for accessing the downtown area, easy in and out off of I-37. Very nice people here, we had a back in site and the site on either side was empty for the entire 15 days. If staying here, take the extra time and get a back in. Everyone wants a pull through, these were filled almost to capacity every night. The regular sites here are tight. There are some big premium ones out back, but they are pretty much taken by reservations. Plus they are pricey. Overall a very good park for the money.

Rate appx. paid $395 mo. plus electric for the two months we spent there. Rates are going up for next winter. This is a great people park, everyone very friendly. We had spent two nights in Mercedes before driving into this park, couple in the office were wonderful, marked off a bunch of available sites, we were checking one out and two people came over to say hello and welcome us. There is also a little 9 hole par 3 course here. Not the best, but good for the short game. They had scramble tournaments every Monday and Friday mornings where you drew for teams. Great fun. We would go back again. One thing about this whole area through, great weather, hardly ever rained, but windy and dusty. It is this whole area of the country is like that though. The owners have many upgrade projects going on. Three new Wi-Fi towers went up while we were there. Plus they added heat to the pool. A bathhouse is planned, along with new pavement on a couple of roads. Nice place to winter.

The park and the site we had are as good as we have seen. However, the Wi-Fi in the North section was very poor. The cable channels provided left a lot to be desired as well unless you speak Spanish. This is a really big place and you pretty much need a golf cart to get around. It is pretty much a destination park and once you arrive you do want to leave it, there is not much around this area. Plus a lot of road construction on US-83. We spent two nights and went looking for a better place to spend a month.

A really nice friendly park right on the bay. The Wi-Fi is additional and we paid $3.95 for a day. It is cheaper for longer periods, but boy did it fly. This is by far the faster we have had in our year of full timing. They have what they call regular sites and premium sites. They overnight sites and premium sites are the really nice ones, the regular look to have mostly permanents in it. We were headed to South TX looking for a park to spend a month in, so as to be in one place for the holidays. Wish we had stopped and spent it here.

Passport America rate, $30 is full rate. The Wi-fi is poor, but use able. However, they did tell us this when I asked about it when making reservation and again at check-in. Probably a household type Wi-Fi setup that can get over loaded by the number of users in a park. This park would have gotten a 10 from us if the Wi-fi was more robust and we were in any other site. We were in site 16 and it had drainage problems (but we were here using PA so that is probably why we got it). It rained the first night and the site was 50% under water. The low point was around the hookups and this area was still holding water when we left 5 days later. The 'puddle' after the rain went from the hookup and surrounded all of the RV tires except the back right. The door area was also flooded so we had to walk in water to get in. So if not using PA I would make sure that you get a different site. This was the only one that had the problem.

(this review was first added to I-10 campground by mistake) $26.50 is full rate, first two nights were half that with Passport America discount. Nice clean safe area with good access to US-90 and I-10. Short drive into Mobile. Part of the park is more established with grass areas and some trees. The larger pull through sites are all in the open (no problem this time of year) and are all crushed stone. It is clean but can be tough on the feet. We will return again if in the area.

As stated in prior review, park is set back from the road which is a big plus in this industrial area. Also, the side and back have a solid 8' fence enclosing park. Did not use Wi-Fi, but was told it was central down near washer/dryers. Some sites are really big, they have several sites they set aside for overnighters and they were not as big, but OK.

Golden Age discount is 50%, but $18 would still be a bargain. Add sewer and this place would be a 10. Big roomy back in sites are fully paved, plus there is a poured concrete 'patio' behind the site with picnic table, grill (new) and fire ring. The space between sites could actually support an additional site, but then it would be like a private park. The Louisiana TPC (golf course) is located at this state park. An easy 30 minute drive into the city.

Passport America rate. Park is close to a 9, sites could be spaced further apart and the Wi-Fi was sporadic while we were there. Then it would be a 10. Improvements are ongoing and new pads were being poured while we were there. Good access to I-10 and the Biloxi coast. Park is pretty much recovered from Katrina and the riff raft is gone. By far the best coast to coast park we have been to.

Nice state park, sites are spaced apart and offer good privacy. There are several walking trails with access to the water. The Navel Air Station is close by and has the museum which is free and very extensive.

Paid Passport America rate of $8.25 for first 3 nights and $15 (senior) for 4th night. Park has two RV areas and is part of the Pat Harrison Water District which runs about 9 "water parks". The sites with the higher numbers has been recently updated, all new pavement, sites and roads. 50 amp service with sewer. Nice quiet park very much like a COE park, big roomy sites with plenty of space between them. The only one downfall we had was a bunch of small ants that must have gotten disturbed. They were all over the RV and we did not have ant spray with us. Other than that we had a good time.

Park actually rates a 7. The 3 is because of the "pull throughs". You have to unhook your toad because of the hookups. The hookups are all the way to the back of the site, with 50' of electric and water lines you would be ok. But you would not be able to use the sewer (too much uphill grade regartless of hose length). We also had to unhook the dolly and slide it under the RV to get it out of the road. That was with 30' of sewer hose fully stretched out. They may be able to give you a spot in the back where it might to ok to block the road overnight.

We agree with all the recent 8's. We paid the off season rate of $80 for a week and added 2 extra nights at $16. Played both courses, both nice, one fairly open and easy, the other host's the Arkansas Open every year. As mentioned there is all kinds of things to do in this park and a great place to spend some time. The downtown area of N Little Rock has open Wi-fi provided by the city. We came so we could have our mail forwarded to us and order a part for the RV.

Found this park through our Passport America directory. There are a lot of seasonal and work types here, so there were not a lot of spaces open. Women across from us told us her husband and 10 other men are all staying there and working for the same land management company. They are doing some kind of oil/gas work in the area. Park was very nice and quiet. WiFi worked very well and was included, as was the CATV. It is right on a man made lake and it looked to have great fishing.

Very busy park so I would recommend calling ahead. We spent a week and this is a good park as it is close to all the attractions. We also had a back in that was somewhat inclined, but ok. If traveling with family you might want to check out the state / COE parks out by Table Rock Lake. We drove through one and it was really nice, won't have all the extras through, cable,wi-fi.

Passport America rate. Sites were large, but rough gravel. Interior roads were also rough gravel with some washouts. OK to navigate, but at a real slow pace. We were off season, but there did appear to be a lot here for families, a lot of permanents, but they have their own area. We would stay again if passing through.

$27.50 less Good Sam discount was $24.75 a night for an all inclusive (taxes too) 5-way hookup. No add ons for 50amp, pull thru, cable tv or wi-fi. Just a nice all inclusive flat rate. Great owners, we came in with no reservation and they took plenty of time to find a way to get us in as we were looking to spend the weekend, Thursday - Sunday. We ended up in one of the nicest sites, #69. It was the last one in the area across from the office and next to the water. So we had no one on our door side, just a large grass area and then the lake. A word of caution is to call ahead first, this is a busy place with rigs coming and going. It must be in one of the big rig guides because of the large number of big diesel pushers coming in. Plus it is where I-70 & I-57 are combined.

Passport America rate 12.50 paid. Came here after leaving Yogi Bear´s in Portage. Great place for adults. It is a small motel with RV sites in back. We were next to a small pond and surrounded by corn fields. Our site was all grass and very nice. Owners are friendly. It is a little over an hour to Chicago (on Saturday) and we took a day trip there.

Not a bad state park, we were early in the year so it was quiet. We had a nice paved back-in site. There is also one of the Bear Trace golf courses at this park.

$21 is Passport America rate, we paid $185 for a week and then $21 for an 8th night. We were in there ´big rig´ sites, which are ok if your under 40´ in length. Very friendly staff and close enough to Nashville for day trips. If you visit, make sure you take a day trip into the downtown music district. Lots to see and do, plus there is a lot of live music where they play for tips only, no cover charges encountered.

Found this campground thru Passport America directory. It is small with mostly seasonals, but they do have sites available. Ours was a decent sized pull-thru. This place is for self contained units, the bathrooms are over at the golf course. The campground abuts the golf course and they have a great stay and play package. $49 for 1 night and two rounds of golf with a cart. $12.50 is the PA rate. Very nice golf course but the campground leaves a bit to be desired, but OK for our purposes.

One of the nicest state parks we have been in. Campground directories are misleading on site size. The sites here are big with a buffer zone (brush, vegetation) between sites. They are also paved with very nice grass around the pavement. This park also has a very nice golf course as well.

Nice large sites right on Lake Erie. We paid $22 a night, plus $6 each for the car and RV. Not sure how they worked that. Site rate should include the RV. It worked out to $62 for two nights for an electric only site. This is high for a state park, but it was very clean.

Passport America rate of 12.50 paid. Most sites are permanent, but they have an 'RV sites' area with 20 long pull-thru sites, 30A/W/S and WiFi. The WiFi is free and is a bit slow, but usable. There are also back-in sites, recommend that you call ahead first during busy seasons as they most likely fill up here. Management very friendly.

Not really a bad place. We were here for a rally and stayed off to the side in a large grass back-in site. It had a grey water only sewer drain. There is not a lot of much in this area of CT, so $35 is high for a place like this. Putnam CC is within an hour and a fairly nice course. Other than that I can't see us coming back here for any reason.

Location, location, location. This place is right on the ocean and breachway. Self contained units only, so it is a great place to put your RV to its full use. We also spent 10 nights here in May. 7 nights is the limit, but managers discretion for additional nights and that was pre season. RI is going to a reservation system so next year it will be tough to get a site on weekends. Now you just showup during the week and your in.

Passport America rate. This place packs them in tight. Mostly filled with seasonal campers and a good place for kids. So so for older couples. We had hot weather and had to run our genset to power the A/C's. The 'transiet' area with about 12 sites was on a 100 amp circuit (do the math). Probably would avoid this place in July/August when schools are out. But it is probably ok when schools are in. There is a really nice golf course (Heritage CC) nearby that has a weekday senior rate of $30 ($36 non senior) for 18 holes with cart and lunch.

$25 is the full rate for W/30amp/S. But they take Passport America on Sun - Thru so it was 12.50 for most nights. We ended up staying 8 nights because we liked it so much. It is in the 'great north woods' and if we had seen a moose or bear walking through the park it would not have been a surprise. No Wi-fi but there is a great little coffee house with free WiFi right up the road next to the post office and near the library (has Wi-fi too). All kinds of great home made goodies here. Owners of park were very nice and park was very quiet and peacefull. Two 18 hole golf courses nearby.

Not sure of the nightly rate, 8 nights came to $117. Great business model here, Sun - Thur they take Passport America, Fri & Sat Good Sam or just about any other discount card. This place runs at close to 100% filled as a result. But all the 10's are over rating it. A 10 is perfection, our first site was subject to dusty conditions when RV's passed, the last site was somewhat muddy after rain. Sites up on top are stone and do not have that problem. Only the lower sites do.

This is a family campground with lots of kids around, that is what they advertise as. It is so so for motorhomes and older couples with no kids. Our site was ok, not good but not bad either. Both of the young women we talked with in the office were very friendly. Good location to visit Salem and/or Hampton Beach.

RV sites are paved and very clean. Good sized sites for the area. WiFi is very robust but expensive at $5 for a day or $15 for a week. Our tour bus took us through two other parks that were not nearly as nice. Good placement of hookups.

Had a great site 88, really really big pull-thru next to the playground. We were here during the week so it was quiet and the site was perfect for our needs. Don't bother with the WiFi. We paid for two days access and it was a waste of money. Web page loads were so slow that they kept timing out. One day it was completely off line.

Good state park, two areas with the smaller one being across the street and better for motorhomes or large 5th wheel / trailers. Electric only, but they do have water available. We had an excellent site and this is a great location to see the area, New River Gorge etc.

First the golf course, Hidden Cove. A golfer's dream for a state park, we added extra nights in order to play it a second time. Campground is good for a state park, some sites are tough for motorhomes, but we found a good level one. Greater place for smaller rigs though. Water hookups are set between sites and we needed to go pick up another 25' of hose (50's total does it) to hookup.

New park with modern laundry room. Every thing very clean. Great access to Mammoth Cave NP. One word of caution on the Wi-fi here, there is something fishy in their setup. I did mention it to an owner but he seemed indifferent. Do not access any financial sites or sites that you do not want someone else seeing. If your PC is setup correctly you will see a popup box warning you about the 'security certificate ...'. This is what you see on TV news programs warning you on having your personnel information stolen. Beware. Other than that the Wi-Fi worked fine and I would return.

Older park in need of some TLC. Good place for seasonal family camping. Lots and lots and lots of trailers, a lot of which belong in junk yards. The trailer across from us had all kinds of crap surrounding it. I am surprised they have not been told to clean it up. But if you get past that, they do have a lot to keep kids busy. This is a Coast-to-Coast campground that also allows Passport America and another club.

Previous reviews of 9's and 10's are right on. The only thing stopping us from giving the place a 10 is the T shaped sites. Getting in and out is a bit tight, especially with a dolly. Once in you are all set and the T does make for some additional privacy. People here are as nice as they get. Would recommend this place to anyone.

Great state park, very clean. Sites are very level and wide. Some are deeper than others. Rate is senior rate, not sure of full rate. Water hookup is shared, not for full time use. You hookup, add water and disconnect. These are positioned so that multiple sites can use one.

Like other reviews, sites are nice and wide. Almost all are pull through. I am posting because they do have wi-fi now. It is in a central location, but if your site is close enough to the main building you can pick it up. However, it is not a very robust system at 1.0 mbps and will bog down with too many users.

Outstanding park, need to spend a couple of nights here. It is not a place to pass through, it is just too nice. Full rate is $20, but 62+ receives a 20% discount. Great for peace and quiet or to explore Savannah. We highly recommend it.
