We have been traveling in a 45' motorhome with a trailer, because of our size issue, when I call I always make a point of our size and inquire as to the ease of entry/exit. I say this because I know it can be difficult to place us, and would rather know in advance if they can not accommodate us. Cross Creek people said they had plenty of room, no problem. When we got there, they said we needed a "premium" spot due to length. I have no problem with that, but the site was not level, and the way they wanted us to exit was impossible. There are trees on all corners, and the paved roads are very narrow, and the bends too tight. The grass looks nice, but because we had to back up to exit, we did have to go onto the grass a bit, and they weren't happy about that. Other than that, the people were very nice there. Would not go back if we had the trailer again. Also, there are a number of "single-wides" there, and many sites seemed permanent, with lots of stuff all over them. The permanent ones all have sheds. It was quiet that night, which we appreciated. Although the listing said they had WIFI, when I asked, they said they had been having trouble with it, and if I couldn't access it at the site, I would be able to at the office. Unfortunately, not only did it not work at the site, also did not work in the office. If it had, the charge is $3.00 per day.

FYI, this campground is Not a KOA now. We stayed at this campground for 12 nights. The owners and the folks who work at the place were so very friendly and helpful, they felt like friends. We were greeted and shown to our site by the owners, who also helped park our trailer in the rear of the park. This campground is very nicely maintained. Clean, neat, and QUIET!! We would definitely return. The location is great - not too far from lots of things to do in the area. One of the best parks we have ever stayed in.

The woman at check-in was extremely nice and helpful, especially since we were later arriving than anticipated. We are a 45 ft motorhome towing a trailer, and had no problem getting into the site. Free WIFI. One problem we had was that due to our trailer, we were unable to reach the sewer hook-up. No cable tv, and our satellite was apparently blocked by a tree. Oh well! It's supposed to be camping, right! We would probably stay again if in the area.

We loved this place. All of the individually owned spots are a bit different, but all are very spacious and private. You have a choice of lakeside view, or off lakeside. We took lakeside and enjoyed the fountains and birds. People we met were very friendly. We would definitely go back!

We really try to avoid KOA's if we can. Unfortunately we were not able to stay anywhere else that night. I called ahead to ask if our 45' motorhome & trailer would fit in a pull-thru. They assured me that if we could accept a 30 amp site, we would fit. The access road was ok, but the campground is obviously an older one not made for larger motorhomes & 5th wheels. Our site was very close to 2 neighbors (including barking dog) inside their motorhome. The breakers kept tripping. We will try not to stay there again.

We just stopped here for one night. As we are a 45' motorhome towing a trailer, we are very careful to make sure ahead of time we will fit. At Flamingo Lake the site they gave us had plenty of width and length. Easy in and out. We were not in the front row but could still see the lake and fountains. Pretty much right next to I 295. Staff was friendly. The WIFI is costly: they use Linkspot, and you pay by the hour, day, or week. We did not use it because I hate to pay for WIFI for one night. My only other comment is that they have a rule stating that dogs may not use their owner's campsite for doing their business. The campground has 2 dog walking areas, both of which were quite far from our site. Am not sure how I would convince my dogs that they had to wait until I got to the designated area. Of course we always pick up immediately after them. Would probably stop here again.

We really enjoyed camping almost next to the beach. Unfortunately we were told our 45' motorhome was too big for the beach side. Instead we were stuck at the farthest end of the park, very near the dumpster which is emptied at 5:45 A.M.. Our site was tight just like all of them in the park. You are supposed to park your car on your site, but we could not really fit our car on our site due to the odd shape of the site. They do have a LOT of rules! The staff was reasonably helpful, but they are up and at it very early. There are a lot of permanent trailers here, with full time residents. One of the rules is that you must keep your site neat, no extra stuff outside, but many people do not abide by that and have all manor of stuff outside. We really liked the location (Gulf). Guess that is what the draw is. They do have WIFI, but you have to buy it, which we did as we were there for a week, it cost $25.00. And when they say they have pull-thrus, they are not very long.

We have a 45' motorhome and a trailer. Even though I stated how long we were, the pull-thru we were assigned was not long enough. We sort of stuck out a bit on either end. It was very hot - 102 degrees, and the heat just radiated off the completely paved area. They have lots of rules. For example "Pets will be kept inside your unit during "quiet hours", 10 p.m. - 9 a.m. (Try to tell your dog that he/she can not go out first thing in the morning). There is very little grass, and your dog may not walk on it. Because of the heat I had to carry my dogs to the fenced in dog area (not grass). You will have very close neighbors.

This campground had a lot of fire ant hills, especially in the dog walk area. Naturally we were reluctant to use that area. We also had a fire ant hill almost next to our step. The trees did make it a bit difficult to get in and out of. We thought that the price was high, we were 3 adults and 1 baby. Probably would look for somewhere else if we were in this area.

We loved this campground! Probably our favorite of all that we have stayed in. We had a beautiful view from our site, and I loved hearing the rushing Chalk Creek below. Each site had a pad with a new picnic table, and a new gas grill complete with utensils. The hosts were very nice and helpful. They had a lot of things to do there. We would definitely return, and might even make an effort to go out of our way to get here.

They claim to have the longest & widest pull throughs east of the Mississippi, and they might be right. Our site was plenty long enough for our 45 ft coach and trailer. The WiFi didn't work from our site. The things we didn't really like about it:1) lots of highway noise 2) some not too well kept up trailers/coaches that seem to have been there awhile 3) a mobile home park is right next to it with residents apparently walking through the KOA.

My husband loved that the roads in the campground were wide enough and not too twisting to allow easy access for our 45 ft motorhome and trailer. The owners were very nice and we were escorted to the site. Our site, "R" did not have a sewer hook up, but had water and 50 amp service. The lack of hook up was not a problem for us as we only stayed one night. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.
