This campground is at one end of Panama City Beach. You drive through the active beach community to reach the park. The park is on a peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico and the Grand Lagoon. The campground is along the Grand Lagoon. You need a car or bicycle to get to the beach from the campground - it is at least a half mile. The beach is absolutely gorgeous! The campground is right on the Lagoon, and many of the sites are on the water. The view across the Lagoon is of upscale condos and yacht clubs. We had some great kayaking in the Lagoon and the pelicans really put on a show. We had been told that it was hard to get a campsite here, but saw many empty sites while we were there.

We were only able to get reservations for 2 nights at this very popular Florida State Park, and we moved from one campsite to another. We then put our name on a waiting list the next morning and got a spot for the third night. There are two campgrounds. The Gulf Breeze campground is right on the dunes. However, the campsites are very near each other. The Shady Pines campground is newer and better laid out. However, the walk to the beach is a tad longer. And oh what a beach! We can see why campers reserve spots 11 months before their trip. This was the only campground on our trip that did recycling, which was gratifying. The only drawback is that dogs are not allowed on Florida State Beaches.

We lucked into this absolute gem of a park trying to escape traffic over Easter weekend. We were here 2 nights at 2 different campsites. The sites are large and well-situated. The campground is along a very wide dune system and so close to the beach you can hear the surf at night. The park is on an "island" with wetlands separating it from the mainland inhabited by many interesting birds and a few alligators. We also saw 2 Painted Buntings. There is a Nature Center, and an empty residence of the original millionaire owners that you can tour. There is a paved bike path to the nearby town of Murrells Inlet with a fabulous seafood store and a bunch of restaurants. The beach is wonderful, and (best of all) dogs are allowed on the beach.

The campsites and roads in this interesting state park are small. Our 29 foot motor home was just about the largest vehicle you could get in there. The park covers the entire island, with a road running through the middle. The beach is on one side of the road, and the campground is on the other. There is plenty of parking at the beach. The campground is loaded with vegetation, huge live oak trees, Spanish moss, and vines. It looks like a set from Jurassic Park. The campground also borders a wetland area with kayaking and fishing. The campground is in a depression and cell coverage is non-existent.

Fort Pickens is just beautiful. The campgrounds are well laid out, and the individual sites far enough away from each other that you don't feel like you are in your neighbors business. Our arrival was delayed by a day because the road was flooded after a big storm. We got a call from the park service that morning telling us to plan to arrive the next day. The beach is a short walk from the campground and one of the most beautiful we've seen, with sugar white sand and bright emerald green waters. The Fort is old and enormous. We sat on it's ramparts and watched the Blue Angels practice overhead. We will definitely return here.

We loved this campground. It is older and has lots of enormous live oak trees with accompanying roots. However, the utilities all worked, and a beautiful beach is just a very short walk away. The campground adjoins the Audubon Bird Sanctuary and is a short walk from the Estuarium and Fort Gaines. Most of the island has wide, paved bike paths. A great seafood store, a general store and several restaurants are a short bike ride away. We were here during the transition between the snowbirds and the vacationers. The snowbirds come back year after year, they like it so much. We had intended to stay 4 days, and stayed 11. You get a price break the longer you stay.

Hurricane Katrina ripped up this part of the Mississippi coast and it looks like this state park had to be completely rebuilt as a result. It is very new. The roads are easy to navigate. All of the sites are full service. The picnic tables are built into new, clean concrete slabs. The sites are separated from each other and there are trees dotted throughout the campground. There is a water park as part of the park, but it was closed while we were here. There is a tiny triangular stretch of beach at the entrance to the park. It is a half mile walk from the campground to the shore. The rest of the shoreline is sea wall. There is a longer stretch of beach several miles down the road. There is a brand new casino 2-3 miles down the road as well.

We stayed here while we visited New Orleans. The campground is located in a suburb community of New Orleans. They provided free shuttle service into the French Quarter in the morning and picked us up again at the end of the day. The campground is very crowded and the sites are close together. Campground staff help you get parked in the tight spots. The campground is family owned and operated and the pride they take in keeping it nice and providing good service to their guests shows.

The campground for this beautiful park stretches along a high levee that separates it from a wide beach and the Gulf of Mexico. There are many paths across the levee along the campground. The campsites are laid out in diagonal rows. They are level and the water and electric hook ups are convenient. The bath houses are very new. The laundry facilities are free. The camp hosts are the most helpful and present of any park we have seen. The park also has a lagoon area where we took our kayaks. The only thing we didn’t like about this park is that you cannot take dogs on the beach. The town of Grand Isle is a collection of fishing “camp” style houses. There really isn’t any beach community vibe to the place. That didn’t matter to us, because we like the less commercial, more natural settings. We stayed here four nights.

This is a beautiful municipal park. It is new and modern with full service sites, marina, beach and other amenities. The sites are close together (but not unbearably close), level, and the hookups are convenient. The roads within the park are easy to navigate. The sites are along the edge of a beautiful lake. There is a very nice paved pedestrian path throughout the park. We stayed here on our way to another engagement. If we hadn’t been in a hurry we would have stayed on another day or so.

This campground was highly rated in Woodalls. It is a large field with concrete and gravel sites close together like in a parking lot. It is right off of Highway 90; however, the sites along the canal do not have the highway noise. Our site was full service including free Wi-Fi and cable. Price reflects Good Sam discount.

This beautiful campground has gotten a bad rap, perhaps because it was built in the 1960s and hasn’t really been upgraded since. However, it is quiet and lovely with sites separated from each other. Each site has water and electricity. The campsites are level concrete slabs big enough for our 29’ RV. The angle to get into them is a little awkward. Inside the loop of sites are enormous live oak trees dripping in Spanish Moss. It is part of a city park located in a middle class neighborhood. There is a key pad with a code to get through the front gates. They only take cash or checks.

Roosevelt State Park was built a long time ago and seems more designed for small pickup truck campers and pop-ups. It has very narrow, windy roads that go up and down a lot of hills. The campsites are narrow, back-in concrete pads. Ours was built up at the back over the edge of a ravine. Despite all that, we saw bigger 5th wheels and travel trailers. We saw 1 big motor home in a pull through site. The park is lovely and wooded with the campsites around the shores of a beautiful lake. Price reflects the Senior Citizen discount.

Point Mallard is an enormous recreation complex owned and run by the city of Decatur AL. It has soccer and little league fields, tennis courts, a huge water park, a golf course, archery ranges, bike trails and I’m sure other things we didn’t see. The campground seems to have a lot of “permanent” residents with a fair number of campsites for itinerants. The staff is very friendly. The campground is kept clean, they pick up your trash at your site 3 times a day. Our campsite (26) was a full service, pull-through site on a corner, so we ended up having traffic passing us on two sides. Next time, we will request one of the other sites. There was trash and cigarette butts in the fire ring, which we cleaned up because they were unsightly. Our price reflects the 15% Senior Citizen discount. This is also a Good Sam Club campground.

This beautiful gem of a campground is run by the Forest Service. It is located just 4 miles off the Natchez Trace Parkway with its own exit at MP 243.1 and well-marked signage to get to it. The shaded campsites are dotted among the trees along the banks of Davis Lake. Most of them are right on the water, all of them have great lake views. Though you can see other campers, the sites are spaced apart and feel private. Most of the sites are very level, though a few have sloped driveways to get to the pad. They have electricity and water, nice picnic tables, a grill and table next to the grill (a nice touch), and a fire pit. Our price reflects the America the Beautiful Senior Pass discount.

Claytor Lake State Park is a lovely, well maintained state park along a mountain lake. The RV campground is essentially a large gravel field with a few trees and campsites in rows of diagonal pull through sites. Our site was level and the electricity was convenient. They have water, but it had not been turned yet on when we were there March 6. They were very upfront about the water being turned off for the winter both on-line and over the phone. We had snow the night we were there, so I guess they have a good reason for turning off the water at the sites. The rest rooms were immaculate and heated. There are dirt and paved paths down to the boat and swimming areas along the lake. A very pretty spot.

We really enjoyed First Landing State Park. The campsites are nestled into ancient sand dunes among gnarled live oak trees. They are sufficiently separated from each other that you have some sense of privacy. There are beach access points in each of the loops with boardwalks across the dune ridges to a wide sloping beach. The beach is along the Chesapeake Bay so the water is shallow, without the surf you will find around the corner on Virginia Beach. In the distance you see ocean going cargo and Navy ships entering the Bay. The Trails part of the Park has quite a few well marked trails. The Bald Cypress Trail goes through a cypress swamp with Spanish Moss hanging from the trees. Quite unusual for Virginia. There is a wonderful Visitors Center in the Trails area. The Park also offers cute 2 bedroom cabins for rent in a pine forested area. Like the campsites, they are thoughtfully situated for privacy.

This is a lovely, clean & friendly state park. We stayed in the Greens Point loop which is bordered on two sides by Lake Conoy (a large salt pond fed from the Potomac River). This camp area has few trees and so is exposed to sun and wind. It also has direct access to the lake, and gorgeous views. Several campsites had kayakers. The other camping areas are wooded and shady but away from the water. In the campground there is a sweet visitor center with civil war relics and fun nature children's exhibits. The camp ground is several miles from the beaches, fishing pier, lighthouse and restored Civil War fort in the rest of the park. It looks like most people drive from the campground to that part of the park, though we walked. There is a path cut-through from the campground to the main road that leads to the other areas. There are 2 pet areas with beaches where our dog swam and retrieved.
