We were here for 4 nights. We camped in a 40 foot motorhome and had no problems getting into site #19. Every site has a grill and picnic table. All are right on the lake. The rate reflected is for a senior and disabled military. There are water and 50 amp hookups. No sewer. There are adequate dump stations close by and near to garbage disposal sites. We used the restrooms which were old and stained but pretty clean. I wore flip flops in the shower. Plenty of hot water. In 4 days, I only encountered l other person in the bathroom. I don't think many people use the facilities. The park is well maintained and mowed. There were lots of people on the weekend but only about half full on Thursday and Sunday. Clemson is about 8 miles away for shopping and the University (the John C. Calhoun home on campus is worth touring). Plenty of restaurants there as well. In another direction is Seneca and a little further back off the interstate is Anderson. There is another COE park on this side of the lake, same road; just a couple miles down the road. This park is seasonal and opens May 1 and closes in the fall. Playgrounds for the kids but the emphasis is the lake for swimming, jet ski, boating, etc. We would stay here again. Matter of fact, we extended one night. Check out the Blue Heron in Clemson for an excellent meal. Maybe pricey for some but the quality and service is excellent.

The rate quoted is PA. I do not understand why this is called a resort. I never saw a swimming pool, only a lake. It's a winding way off the interstates that would be difficult if not impossible to find at night. Turning onto Lake Rd to access the park, the road is wide enough but paved only in the middle with dirt and gravel on either side. No foliage to scratch the camper but NOT a campground we would have stayed at if we had seen it in advance. There are only 2 bathhouses for nearly 200 spots. Some of the access roads are dirt and most of the spots are Very unlevel. A travel trailer or 5th wheel with lots of leveling devices might make out OK. We never got level so our refrigerator did not run right and we could not open pocket doors. The staff was very nice and this could be an excellent campground but it is not for a motor home over 30 feet and/or with a toad. We would never stay here again. So, campers beware.

This is a park designed for long term residents with only a few sites for overnighters or short-termers so reservations would probably be a must especially during the busy summer season. We were in the area to see family so the limited number of sites was OK for us, as we were not there to use their facilities. They are gated so at night, one has to use a key card to get access to their site. Staff is friendly and we will stay here again. Sites could use a little leveling but we made out OK, and they are suitable for class A homes. No tent camping is allowed.

Another pricey KOA for the facilities of the park. This is about an hour from downtown DC and the Baltimore, Annapolis area so the location is good. Just be sure to follow the GPS and road signs to get to the park. From when we were here last July and suggested they put in more 50 amp spots, nothing has changed. Still fewer than 10 of those and they have been full since we have been here with a few other spots from tent campers on up here at the park. They do have a shuttle to the area attractions and because this is a 20 minute ride from our family, we will continue to use the park. The price reflected is WITH our rewards card so for those not members it will be 10% higher. The weather has been great--70s this time of year and pleasant to sit out or tour on foot the area attractions.

A surprisingly pleasant park in an ideal location between Wilmington, DE and Philadelphia, PA.There appear to be a number of amenities here but we were in the area for a conference and to sightsee so did not avail ourselves of them. Close to the Interstate exit with groceries, eateries, and other essentials close by. There is also a Camping World for RV supplies within a couple of miles. Sites are gravel and level and there are cement pads. Places to walk the dogs and a place we will utilize again if we are back in the area.

Gave this park a 7 cause there is a lot to do here; so much is new, including playground and new sites with cement pads and grass laid. This is going to be a nice resort with many different levels of accommodation, and the water is east and west just a few hundred steps. We were only here overnight and it was windy, cold, and rainy. They "tried us out" on one of the new cement pad sites so we were further from the beach but that was OK as we were not going to the beach anyway. Close enough to walk to several restaurants, and since we didn't want to unhook the toad for the night, it was great to have a pull-through. Not all campgrounds have this option. If we are back this way, we will certainly consider this park at which to stay.

Close to I-64 and shopping and Colonial Williamsburg, we were here only overnight after having made an advance reservation back in early March. We used none of the facilities but we found this park is similar to many KOAs. An OK park but not exceptional and more suited for RVs that are not Class A's. The first site assigned we could not get level on without BOTH front wheels being off the ground so obviously the sites need some work they probably won't get now that the spring/summer season is starting to kick in. We moved to another spot and it was OK but perhaps because it was under the trees, it was mostly fall leaves and dirt outside the door. I am sure it is really dusty when the weather is dry. OK for an overnight but I would not want to spend a full vacation here. We also had to rehook our toad right in front of the office as there is no level area to rehook for those of us with toads.

This is always a handy place to stay when in the area. Close to shopping and many of the sites. We were only here 2 nights to see relatives and went to see them and also shopped in the historic downtown Front Street area that dates back to the early 1800's. Lots to do here and the Azalea Festival was just ending and they are still prolific and beautiful in people's yards. The staff here is nice. Like most KOA's it seems a little overpriced although it is very well kept. This time though, they had planned to replace water mains so even tho we had a full hookup, we were without water for the whole day and until after 9 pm at night. At 3 pm when my husband went to check on when they might be finished, they stated a couple of hours. When he came out, a fifth wheel had just checked in and my husband said well, a few more hours without water. And the guy stated they never told me the water was off and my water tank is empty. So, that was an oversight on the office's part in not telling incoming guests so if they needed water or to dump, they could do so before going to their site. We will come back here again. Are usually here at least 1x per year--we were here last in December.

The main thing this campground has going for it is it is right next to I-95. There are numerous eating places, gas stations, and grocery stores nearby. That being said, because it was race week (although different dates were reflected in Passport America); they were not honoring those rates and their normal rates were higher. $48 a night for a 30 amp site with water and sewer. They are very limited. I think 2 total 50 amp sites. Many of the sites are occupied by long term residents and many sites look junky to say the least. The staff is friendly though and the residents are friendly. The dump station is hard to access because the trees and foliage on adjacent properties hang over the dump site area. We could barely get out of the camper door because of the overgrown bushes which SwampFox can't trim unless they get the owners' permission. So, plan to dump elsewhere. We will need to make reservations far in advance to come back here in order to get a 50 amp site which one one need in the middle of summer. April was OK with 1 ac running although it was in the low 80's. We would stay here again as it is convenient to visiting friends and relatives. There's not a lot of choice in this area.

We have stayed here in the past in a 35 foot 5th wheel. The sites are concrete and nice but not for a bigger unit. They are suitable for tagalongs, shorter 5th wheels and motorhomes no longer than 30-32 feet. This is a preferred park close to where we do business several times a year but this time when we pulled in to our carefully selected spot( only 3 possibilities for a 40 foot motorhome out of all the spots), our automatic levelers would not level even after 3 tries so even tho we had reserved and paid for the spot, we had no option but to leave. Spot 1, 3 which are backins in campground 2 would work but they were both reserved and there is one other on the opposite side of campground 2 (a pull thru right next to the lake) that was also reserved that would have worked. We had thought 124 since it was longer would work, but the site slopes at the back after about 34 feet and would not level. What a disappointment as this is a very nice park otherwise but just not set up for larger units.

The pool is closed for the season but the dogwoods and other foliage is blooming, new grass is coming in, and every time we visit this campground gets better and better due to the diligence and hard work of the owners and workampers. It is close to I-26 and shopping and restaurants are 7-10 miles away. Also good for an overnight stop. The only drawback is that they are nearly full most of the time--the deer hunters who leave their RVs here weeks at a time and the fulltimers who are working on a local building project leaves few spots for those who think they can just pull in and get a spot. Right now, there's only about 5-6 spots left each morning and by nightfall only 2-3 (and they are short and not suitable for a bigger 5th wheel or bigger motorhome). Would advise you call for a reservation ahead when your plans indicate you will be in this area by the time you want to stop.

A little off the beaten path but for those leaving I-75 and going to I-20 (east bound) and wanting to avoid Atlanta, this is a great park. People are so friendly and the rate is Passport America. We are just here but for one night but this is our 3rd visit. Some of the sites need leveling and more gravel but they are dry. Most sites are back-in but we wanted a pull through and got one. There are new owners so we look forward to improvements when we make our next stop here.

The price reflects the Good Sam discount. We were not allowed to use Passport America unless we stayed 2 nights. The park is within sight of I-75 but no noise could be heard from the highway. There are plenty of eating places close by. This appears to be the most southernmost of the Ocala area RV parks. Our site was grass only although there are some concrete sites. Everyone was very friendly and they have on-site garbage pickup. We were only here overnight so did not use any of the facilities. We usually stay closer to the GA border but this is a good stop as well. Easy to level, friendly residents. Easy to like.

Would have given this park a higher rating, EXCEPT I called them to ask about availability and the person was very nice and helpful, BUT failed to say that their address had been changed and therefore, the GPS would not work. We were using our Iphone and the google map app and it told us we were 11 miles away from the address given to us online on their website. Just happened to see the sign and said this has to be the place, BUT my GPS is saying it is south of Troy, not north and we still have 11 miles to go. The person who checked me in said yes, we have people turning around miles down the road and coming back. I say they should get with the powers that be and get a good address and then post that online or indicate that a customer should CALL for directions as the GPS doesn't get you there. The park is clean; we were just there for 1 night. It is very spacious and there are cement pads for the RV and the roads in and around are gravel which keeps down dust and mud. We seemed to be in a pretty rural area so plan to eat at your RV. The pool had not been winterized and was not covered. The person who checked us in was very nice and escorted us to our site. Offered to help us set up as well. A good place to overnight and there were a few of us here plus some long term tenants. The park is right on Hwy 231 with easy access in and out.

This park is a benefit for customers who are having service or work done on their motorhome. There was no water at all available at individual sites; only at 2 areas where one could fill their tanks. It was very cold so there were 2 locations where we could get propane that we used; one was L and L and the other was McKinney RV. They are both close to the campsites. We also did not use the sewer at the site and were encouraged to use the RV water/wash sites. This campground is extremely dusty when it is dry and very muddy when it has rained. It is located on the site of an old airport and the directional markings can still be seen on the concrete. This park stays very busy and perhaps due to that, potholes are forming on the grounds that could use a repair. The staff, office personnel, and mechanics are very friendly and competent and helpful in regard to places to eat, shop etc. There are 5 washers($1 each) and 5 dryers($.75 each for about 50 minutes). There's not many places to walk one's dogs and most but all people do not clean up after their dog. We will be back because this is the best and only place for good, reasonable repairs on our motorhome.

Stayed here a couple of years ago when this park was brand new and mostly red dirt and rock. Things have changed a lot. Now has grass, concrete pads (although our 40 foot motorhome was not conducive to using it), but shorter units will find it a welcome addition. The sites themselves are heavy gravel. We used our jacks to level the unit. We were here 4 days; some of the weather was extremely cold and the hosts came by to ask us to fill our tanks with water and disconnect from water. Then they came back in the am when the temp got above freezing to help us reconnect. The hosts are what make this park a better than average park; however, we are within a mile of groceries, shopping center, fuel, drug stores and right off I-20. This is an ideal spot for a stopover and for us to visit friends. Am sure we will be back again.

This is not really a campground for transient rv's that want to stay a night, a week, or a couple of weeks. There are a lot of sites, maybe a hundred or more but they are set up on a permanent basis with underpinnings and porches attached. They only have a few sites for people like us but they are level. The girl in the office is extremely helpful and friendly and if you stay 6 nights, the 7th is free. It's about 9 miles from Morehead City and about 9 miles to Emerald Isle and an hour from New Bern and/or Jacksonville, NC. We have family here so we are always searching for a full service campground but there is obviously not a lot of demand in this area. We are staying 2 weeks; the first week, we were the ONLY motorhome in the whole permanent park(most of travel trailers or 5th wheels set up permanently) but on Christmas Eve 2 other motorhomes showed up. A 5th wheel was here in a temporary site when we got here but no occupants have been there. Have not used any of the facilities. We are right off Hwy 24 so there is a gate that is locked at night and accessible only by a code, which is good. There is a doggy area with plenty of dog poop bags but we have seen evidence that not everyone avails themselves of the bags nor do they scoop when their dog poops. There are not many residents here this time of year but the ones that are here have been very cordial. We would stay here again but if coming in warmer weather would need to plan ahead to make sure one of these very limited sites are available.

Rate is Passport America. Arrived after dark. Right off I-95, but lots of twists and turns to get way back in the woods. Site was level and was long enough for our 40 foot MH and toad. Very rustic feel and the exterior of the bathrooms look like they date to its founding date--1980. Adequate for a night's stay but not somewhere I would want to vacation. There's another RV park just up the road and closer to the interstate. Had made a reservation but the check-in staff did not know we were coming and had to check her computer. This is an Encore park and to get any discount, one has to book and pay in advance for 1 night on their 800 number. The park was just OK for a night's rest. They do charge for cable hookup, but we were leaving early and tired so we did not opt to pay more. Would probably look for a different park when we came this way again.

There's no pool, no golf course but this is an excellent park for overnighters or for longer term people. The park is far enough off I10 that one hears no road noise yet without 2 exits of gas, restaurants, and other things RVers need. A little further toward Beaumont are grocery stores and a mall is less than 10 miles away. The staff keeps the park immaculate and manicured. The laundry room is clean as are the bathroom/shower combos of which there are either 3 or 4. There's complimentary tea, coffee, and snacks in the office and there are bags for picking up pet refuse. The lake offers fishing. We look forward to the next time we're back this way because this is one place we want to stay again.

Our 2nd stay at this park and we must have had the shadiest spot in the park. It was great, especially in the hot summertime. We did not have sewer connection though--all those were booked so we used their bathroom facilities and found them to be clean and with paper products always available. Our unit backed up to Hwy 17, but we had no trouble with "highway noise". Our dogs enjoy the 2 enclosed dog runs. We were close in to all the activities we wanted to attend as well as the mall and restaurants. Since we are KOA members, this is a park we will continue to use since we come here to visit family and enjoy what the area has to offer.

No pool and rate is Passport America but this is a nice park to overnight at. Cement pads that are in great condition so easy to level. We usually travel further west but an accident on I-20 put this park as our best option for the night, and we are glad we did. It has very clean restroom/shower combined and a laundry room, all in the same area, all accessed by code. A short distance from the interstate and with lots of gas/diesel stations and lots of eating places. We would highly recommend this park.

The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. The park is only two miles from I-20 west of Atlanta and about 12 miles from Oxford/Anniston. It's clean and fairly well kept and has a very rural feel about it, which it is. The park is currently for sale as the owner says she is unable to continue to take care of it by herself with only part-time help. We have a pull-through spot, which was very easy to level and has gravel. There are no cement spots available and I assume the showers are in the office area. The office was not open when we arrived but a call brought the owner quickly from the house located right next to the office. We usually stay closer to Oxford/Anniston but will try this one for the next few days. There is no cable and if you don't have your own satellite, there are only 3 channels available so we'll catch up on some reading. The dogs loved the big fields for exploring.

We were only here two nights but were amazed at how big the park is and pretty well laid out. Wish we'd had more time there. It is just off Hwy 17 south of Charleston and a fairly short drive into Charleston's downtown historical district. Maps and brochures of things to do were readily available and we had a good time here. Not here long enough to utilize any of the park's amenities. Hope to return when we can stay longer.

This is an older park right off of I-95 that has a lot of semi-permanent residents. We were here a week and the location is close to downtown Florence and the extensive hospital complexes as well as to eateries and the Pee Dee Area Farmers Market, which is open every day of the year and is a drive through that features local products and fresh vegetables during season. The park is quiet with a pond with a catch and release pond, numerous ducks that come right up to get a bread handout, a clean swimming pool, and clean playground. There's a lot of acreage here and tho it is old, the bathrooms were clean and well maintained. The 2 main drawbacks is that the cable is lousy with limited channels. Although there is a lot of shade, the huge oak trees have "eaten" the grass and with a lot of rain, there are a lot of gullies and muddy areas. It was very difficult to level the RV. They need to regrade many of their sites and put in new gravel. The picnic tables are old and it would be better to not even have them. The concrete slabs need cleaning as well. There's not much selection in regard to RV parks here so it is doable but hopefully they will make some improvements before the next trip.

The rate includes the KOA member rate. This is an excellent location for sightseeing in both Baltimore and Washington and there is a shuttle during the summer season for just that purpose. There are too few 50 amp sites, especially in the summer heat and when one has 2 ac units and only 1 can be used. The staff was friendly. There are activities for children and family without leaving the grounds, but there is a gas station less than 2 miles away and shopping for groceries and a vet about 6 miles away. The bathroom has had a water leak that had not been addressed, but since we are self-contained, that was not a problem. We would stay here again, but would make plans to get a 50 amp site if we were here in the middle of summer.

The rate reflects Passport America but WOW what a surprise. A true gem in the middle of the woods in one area; soybean fields in the other. We are so glad we came. The spacing between sites is good and the cable selection is enormous. There are a lot of 50 amp sites and it is very clean and easy to get into and out of. Most of the sites are back in. The staff in the office was nice and efficient. There's a fishing lake on the premises. If there is a drawback, some of the sites are a long way from the bathhouse. Since we are self-contained, not a problem but for other campers, they might want to request a site close to the bathhouse. We would definitely stay here if we come back again.

Off 414 and handy to both Watkins Glen for boating on the "Finger Lake" and touring the falls or for Corning and the Glass Museum and other attractions. The road is very good to and from these areas. The park is large and we were close to the bathrooms. They were NOT clean though and I only used them once and did not return. I was disappointed that they do not recycle as many other parks do, but we were told to put our plastic, paper, and glass in the trash. We would stay here again since we are self-contained and there is a lot to do in the area.

This is a great location for many outdoor activities such as fishing, hiking and close to Lake Placid and the Olympic history there. The resort side of the campground has rather small sites and some are covered with gravel, some are dirt only. The bathrooms were the cleanest we've seen; however, the "lower" and "upper" baths (located underneath the motel area are not handicap accessible at all. There is mini golf and a game room and an adult room with puzzles and a TV. Grounds staff were very friendly and capable and helped us with our electrical issues. I believe the utility company was called to resolve the problem. There are 2 pools on the property, as well and a great playground for the younger children. We would stay here again just because there are so many things to do at the campground or within 20 miles or so. But, be aware of the limitations if one needs accessible access.

The rate reflects Passport America. Call this campground or you could end up with your GPS taking you through a tunnel only 10 feet high. The staff was very friendly, but the phone rang constantly while we were trying to check in so it took us longer. The site we got was way up on a hill. There's a lot of long term people here, but that was OK. The site was OK except there was a problem with the 50 amp electric. The people in a large motor home next to us moved 2 times trying to get stable electricity. There is a mall and groceries not too far away as well as restaurants. Other people who are long term must find some other attributes. It was OK for an overnight but not a place I'd want to stay for long.

This park is not easy to find. Not much signage on Hwy 23 and what there is, is very small except for one sign right when you turn, which is too late to turn if you're traveling 45 miles per hour. Very rural and rustic. Nice people at check in. Was taken to our site which is very grassy this time of year. We elected to pay the $4 extra for sewer hookup. There is no cable here but we have our own internet with our iphones and there is very good reception. For a one night stay it's a very good place; fairly close to I88 between Binghampton and Albany, NY. We would stay here again but my husband would be bored but there are activities to partake of.

Some of the park is shady; some under the trees. There are no cement pads. Looks as though a good many people are seasonal and leave their RV here. They have very good accommodations for horses--8 or so paddocks; probably 25 or 30 stalls and ample parking for horse trailers. There are also some cabins for rent. Bet this place is busy during the summer. You can ride your horse right across the road and you are in Gettysburg Civil War Park. There's also a driving tour and you can rent the audio cd in the RV office where everyone is very friendly and accommodating. This is the closest campground to the park. The sites are not very level and have gravel but if you're not a new camper, you can set up fairly easily. You can buy wood and there are fire pits. We like the accessibility to town and to the park and will stay here again. They do honor passport American Sunday thru Thursday and give 10% Good Sam discount. Two nights with tax etc; one Good Sam; one PA and the cost was $77.

Was here last in November and the campground hosts are doing a better job in cleaning the baths than what the state staff did. Cobwebs and trash around the vents need to be cleaned, and the inside walls swept down and a good thorough cleaning of the baths; however, they are better than they have been, and Clorox is being used to disinfect the floors. There are no sewer connections, but people do a pretty good job of keeping sites clean. Few sites for longer rigs. Good views of the lake from any of the sites. There are 2 dump stations, and they do recycle aluminum, plastic, and newsprint. We stay here because there are few parks, and we have business here several times a year.

We have stayed at this park several times, and the park has deteriorated significantly in upkeep and maintenance. The park has great potential; it's shady and close to a small town with grocery stores, churches, and a small town atmosphere. It's a shame to see this park go downhill like this. The bathrooms had ants crawling up the walls; spider webs and mold and mildew everywhere. The floor had been swept. The laundry room was dusty, and several of the appliances were broken. At $2 to wash and $2 to dry, the facility was more expensive than some we've been to. People are not cleaning up after their animals. The couple who run the park are very friendly and nice, and they may not physically be able to stay up with the standards of a nice park. We would not stay here except to pass through, and we probably won't stop in even overnight again. Sites were grassy but uneven; there were a few spots that were cemented. They are not affiliated with Good Sam, Woodalls, or Passport America and give no discounts.

We stay here at least one night every time we leave or come back to Florida since we live in way south Florida. This campground is a great stopoff and honors Passport America for 3 nights in a row unless there's a special event. We enjoy staying here.

A most excellent campground in a good location. Williston is a small town but has 2 grocery stores and a couple of really good restaurants. It's equidistant to both Ocala and Gainesville with good roads to both locations for any activities in which one would want to participate. About 20 miles from I75 but within easy driving distance of Silver Springs, U of FL, the Veterans Hospital, Shands etc. A good place to spend a relaxing time. Gates close at 6 pm but the resident has a code to get in. The majority of people are long term snowbirds and there are lots of activities going on at the campground.

We try to stay at this park to get our 2nd wind before heading home into S. Florida. The check in is easy and the people are very nice. You are taken to your site which for over nights is usually out in the open although there are plenty of treed spots as well. The rate is for Passport America. We have never had any issues here and even though we can see I-10, we never hear any traffic. We recommend this park to anyone who needs a nice stopover either on I-75 or I-10. The Ole Time Country Buffet off Hwy 90 at the mall has wonderful country food and more than you'll ever eat. They also give a military discount and have special rates for seniors between 2 and 4 pm. A nice place to spend the night or a couple of days.

This is a park that pleasantly surprised us with its amenities (which we did not have time to try) but there's a hot tub and pool. The bathrooms are immaculate with plenty of paper towels, soap, and toilet tissue. It is wooded with lots of shade and the check in staff very helpful and nice. We hope that this right at I-75, clean, friendly park is one we will have the opportunity to visit again. They take a lot a discounts and our rate reflected Passport America. One gentlemen we met said he had planned to stay one night and is staying for the month. If duty did not call, we might do the same.

We are here for a week. The park is close to I-26 north of Columbia, SC. The small town of Joanna with a Dollar General and a local cafe(Joanna Cafe) is within 4 miles. The town of Clinton with an Ingles and Wal-Mart is only about 6 miles down the road off hwy 56. There are waste bags available for the pets. This is a well maintained park and is eligible for many discounts. Just be sure to read their listings carefully to be sure you understand what you are paying for. We are using Passport America for some nights (not the weekend) and Good Sam for the weekend nights. There were only a few spots available for transients as there appears to be some sort of construction going on and many of the workers are staying here while the work is going on. There are also hunters and 4 wheeler groups who were here for the weekend, but they were Dads and sons and were a very well behaved group. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

We were only here for one night but this is a park easily accessible to I-75 but we heard no road noise during the night. The park is heavily wooded with oak trees and there appear to be some long term residents as well as transits like ourselves. The staff was very friendly and the office staff exceptionally so. We purchased our gas from them. The bathrooms are old but are in a clean, working condition with paper towels and soap in the dispensers. We were afforded a Good Sam rate and they appear to honor many discounts except for Passport America. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

This is our 2nd time at this campground and we asked(back in March) for a 50 amp site. We reserved a week and so this gave us the weekly rate, but no other discounts. The grounds are clean and quiet. Neighbors we've had are nice. I gave this an 8 because we don't use the bathrooms or the laundry--we have our own--and we use our own Wi-Fi. There are brand new owners and if they continue the traditions of old, they'll do OK. Just off 105 and if you've had mountain experience you'll have no trouble getting here. Our total length is about 53(36 for the rv; then the truck). Our site is back-in. It is very close to attractions, grocery, and we will stay here again. The dumpster is on one's way out of the campground. The office is helpful about attractions and even has tickets for some venues.

We gave this park a 6 mainly for 2 reasons. The first is that it is very new and there is a lot of trash grass, weed stickers, and raw red ground that hopefully will change as this park matures. When I checked in, the lady was brand new, but very nice. There are back in and pull through sites, but hardly any shade. There is a fenced in area for the pets, but it did not look as though it had been used. The dumpster was easily accessible as you exit the park. The park office was not open on Sunday at 8:30 am when we left so I could not access the bathroom. I'm not even sure if they have baths and showers for campers. They do have a laundry and it's accessible 24 hours a day. This park is right next to an RV center, so is handy for shopping or if you have a service need for your RV. You can also see I-20 from the park as it is right on Hwy 78. We stayed here because it is close to where our friends live. We stayed at a park down the road for cash only, $20 a night, but they had no laundry, showers or baths, which was ok by us as we carry those with us. We will probably go back to the one we stayed at previously, unless they make a lot of improvements between now and the next time we visit. They have some of the amenities in place that one expects from a KOA, but they have a ways to go as well.

This is an older park located about 6 miles south of I-20 off Hwy 61 toward Natchez so it is a good place for exploring Vicksburg and even Natchez which was about 50 miles away. There is no shade and it sits high on a bluff. Office staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They even loaned us a CD for the driving tour of the Vicksburg Military Park which is an awesome, solemn place with an excellent visitor center. Veterans can get a card for like $10 to visit all national parks so we paid no admission fee. We also did a Haunted Vicksburg tour(driving) which was well worth the money--they also have walking tours and once a month a tour of the military park at night. Now, back to the campground. The restrooms were fairly clean, but old and smelled that way. There were some spider webs and small dead bugs around. The baths need to be updated; however, I'm sure money is a factor as of the 108 spaces only about 10 or 12 were occupied. 8 of those appeared to be long term and at least l or 2 were the camp hosts. We were the only overnight camper the lst nite we stayed. The sites are nicely graveled, but the hookups are too far to the rear of the camper which necessitates the rear of the camper to be in the road or to use several sections of sewer and 2 hose for water connection. We might stay at the park again due to the nice people or the quietness (we do not gamble), but we may also go back to the park nearer the interstate next time because it is really a chore hooking up in the summer humid heat and having to use all those extensions. If the hookups were further abeam the site and the baths were updated, this would be an excellent base from which to spend several nights.

This was a gem of a find and we would not have been this way had we not gone by to look at a motorhome for sale. The staff is friendly and it has all the things adult campers need. It is well laid out. It will not accommodate large rigs. We are 36 feet and a 38 foot motorhome preceded us. All sites are back-in and that's why I didn't give it a 10. It has shady mature trees, level gravel spots, picnic tables at each spot. It is an adult park with mostly long term residents. Most seemed to be from FL and for us Flordians as well, it is nice to sit outside with coffee in the a.m. at the end of July no less with no bugs, shade, and good ambiance. It is tempting just to put down roots and stay until about December here, but alas we have to move on. The monthly rates are extremely reasonable and we would love to come back here and just veg out. The rate is Passport America for a max of 2 nites.

There's lots of grass here; maybe because it has rained so much this year and rained here yesterday and today There is lots of gravel at the sites and drainage after the deluge seemed pretty good. I did not see any pet waste and there were doggy clean up bags available. The check-in person was extremely nice and even gave us some fresh tomatoes. We are extremely close to I-10, but our site (20) is further away and we hear no noise at all. There appears to be a lot of long term residents here and some of the campers need to be washed and upgraded, but most are OK. The sites are extremely clean; no junk sitting outside the RVs. We had not planned to stay here but our washer/dryer died and while we are waiting on parts and repair at Camping World (which is about 4 miles from us) we are staying here. We are close to Katy Mills Mall as well and there are some local historical things we want to check out. Our rate reflects the Good Sam discount. We would stay here again.

This is a park really intended for long-term residents and is still in the process of becoming as it is less than 2 years old. Some of the spots are gravel; some are concrete. Most have some shade at least part of the day as it's located in a former wooded area. There are only 4 transient spots and anyone looking to stay a week or longer should look into one of the other lots.

This is the 2nd time we've stayed here. We really like this area and the people. There are only a few spots for transients. Seems most people are fairly local and just leave their rigs here for months at a time and come when they can. We would love to work-camp here or stay here for several months. The spots are all cement pads; lots of foliage and grass and several bath houses and plenty of facilities. They do not give any discounts. The park is right off Hwy 59 close to Gulf Shores and just south of Foley and the Tanger Outlet Mall.

We were here only one night and they have additional security by having a gate that is locked at night. The bathrooms were clean; the facility appears to be pretty new. The sites were large and grassy and we had a pull through although there are back-ins also. They honored our Passport America for a great rate. We usually stay in Lake City but were late getting away so this made a really good spot to stop off by being l/2 mile from I75.

An excellent park close to the highway but above the highway noise. This park has several levels and they are easy to back into. It is about 4 miles from Franklin and 16 miles from Dillsboro off a 4 lane highway. A Wal-Mart and fast food is about 2 miles away. The leaves were beautiful, the staff kind, and they give out doggy biscuits for the 4 legged guests. This will be our park of choice for exploring the area again--nice drive from Highlands, Cashiers, Sylva.

This state park has mostly back in sites, limited 50 amp, and no pool or cable or sewer. Close to bath house but baths and bathrooms are not regularly maintained. There is tissue for the bathroom and plenty of hot water for showers but wear flip flops and and your own shampoo/soap etc. I guess this is fairly typical of state parks and we've stayed here 3 times; back in April, again in July; and now October for several weeks. This is about the best accommodations in the area and most people come for the boating or fishing or swimming in the lake in the summer. The sites are paved and mostly back in but bring your own trimmers as sometimes limbs hang low. There are few spots to accommodate rigs over 40 feet. We stay here because it's close to where we need to conduct business and the staff in the office is nice. There is a fee for reserving through Reserve America; so this increases the daily cost.

We stay here every time we're going to or from home to South Florida. The rate quoted is Passport America. A clean park, well-maintained. No pool but there's cable and plenty of eating places going south on 441 plus the VA is close by. Right off I-10 east of I-75 and only about 6 miles east of I-75.

This is the 2nd time we've stayed here. Nice park, nice people. They're new owners since we were here last. The $30 reflects 50 amp; 30 amp is cheaper. Only a mile or so from the town of Wrens. There's a pecan company to buy locally grown pecans at, maybe even a tour. We like staying here; laid back and relaxed and park is clean. We don't need the pool or cable so it suits our needs. Found a local restaurant called Peggy's right on Main Street that serves a really good Southern breakfast and there's an Ingle's and IGA for your grocery needs. Will stay here again.

This campground has some of the longest, most level and nicest concrete slab sites of any we've stayed at in the last 2 months. It has all the amenities like 2 pools, one in and one out, spa and is close to the beach yet away from the hustle bustle if one just wants the quiet. Lots of trees and grass. A 9 plus park as far as we're concerned. The only drawback, if there is one, is that all the dumpsters are in one area, too far to walk to so we have to change our exit route when going out for the day to drop off our trash. We would love to come back here and stay for an extended period; it's that nice a park.

A nice park just off hwy 6 coming from West I-10 and easy to get to. Near multiple other major roads and near lots of groceries and shopping and eating. We've stayed here before and deliberately came back here. The rate reflects the AAA/Good Sam's discount. If you're here on the weekend, there's a huge flea market right out your window. Don't know how the noise level would be during the daytime then but we're always here at off times. This site is close to friends and relatives yet we're out of the main Houston traffic. Haven't used the pool, mini golf or other facilities but they seem clean. The tables near the clubhouse need to be clean. Birds are using them for roosting and getting out of the heat. Some shade here but it seems reserved for their long term residents. I really like that there's big trash barrels right outside our RVs every few sites so keeping the area clean is no problem. The dog walk area is not as clean as it should be but I fault the dog owners on that, not the park. There's signs and they provide waste bags to clean up so I think people need to do a better job of policing their own animal(s).

A beautiful campground right off I-10 and about 5 miles from town. Every amenity one might want. We were the only ones using the immaculate pool and it was over 100 degrees. It's dry here now but the park is still in great condition. Not a lot of shady spots but there are some and we were lucky enough to get one under a big oak. We were here about 4 nights and 5 days. Trash is picked up curbside and spots are paved and there's gravel to park a vehicle on. Also, there's grassy areas. We will be staying here again as we have family in the area. Understand there's lots of snowbirds in the winter so plan ahead if you're traveling during that time.

Wow! Customer service here is great. The park is handy to I-40 on the west side of Amarillo. It is immaculate. There's every amenity a traveler could ask for that's passing through or who's planning to stay a couple of days. There's a restaurant that serves breakfast and dinner and there's waste bags for dogs. The spaces are mostly big pull throughs and we are enjoying our stay here. Sites are level and concrete and with nice landscaping.

This is a real friendly park. True, there's not as many amenities as a lot of places but the bathrooms and laundry were immaculate and they gave us a late checkout so we could attend church. The spots are pull through and more than adequate to let out slides. There are waste bags available for the dogs and a good book trading area. We found this place in northeastern New Mexico by chance but it's a very nice park and if we're back this way, would plan to stay here again. Don't miss the Capulin dormant volcano about 30 miles from here.

This was a campground we found in Woodalls that had a vacancy. We had no trouble with our rig getting in and there were 40 ft. motorhomes here as well. It's a doable place, but there are few transients. Most seem to be long term residents. The sites are either gravel or completely concrete. There is little grass anywhere and the dog walk area was an area completely filled in with gravel. We walked our dogs over to an area where a mobile home was deserted and there was no grass, only trimmed weeds. It was stated that if your dog went on their grass, you'd be asked to leave. The sites are so close together that you cannot let out your awning--you or your neighbor have to decide who's going to let their awning out. Our last night, a fifth wheel pulled in with no slides--if he'd had slides, we both could not have let out our slides. They try to solve this problem but having one RV park east to west, and their neighbor is parked west to east. The plus is that you're close to I-70, can go straight downtown to the mint on Colfax(about 12 miles) or to the capital. It's close to Coors Brewery, Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Buffalo Bill Museum and gravesite. There's a much nicer park just across the street with grass at every site at $10 more per night and they charge $3 for 50 amp per night as well as $1 per pet per night. I guess you get what you pay for, but they were full when we got here and this was a doable alternative.

We liked this park just off I-25 South at exit 2. There's a good restaurant on the premises that serves bison many different ways--even soup. There's no cable but we could get sufficient channels. Be careful letting out your awning. The wind can come up suddenly and fiercely. Our next door neighbor from Germany put his up and when the wind came up, had to struggle to get it down. A rainstorm and wind came up during the night and woke us and we put down our TV antenna. Next am, some who didn't had them damaged. We were within sight of the CO border and on the park, we enjoyed a train ride through a bison herd and got to see a yak and beefalo as well. Everyone is nice and they also have a pretty well stocked general store for pick up items. Everything is close by in this area; the Wrangler store, Warren AFB, the capital, and the old Train Depot and Museum. Would recommend Shadows in the Depot for a lunch or evening meal.

This park is well located about 11 miles from Rapid City and about 12 miles from Mount Rushmore and a little further from Custer State Park and the Crazy Horse Monument. It's a good location to go to Deadwood, Sturgis, Custer, Hill City or a lot of other close by towns. We did not use the pool or spa but understand both are heated. The park has good security and we would stay here again.

Very nice park-give Good Sam discount and do ask to see card. Have some 50 amp sites. Most are gravel or grass. We happened to have a concrete pad. They are just off Hwy 23 and easily accessible but out in the country but oh, so close to St. Cloud and plenty of shopping and eating. The park was very clean and there's a really big nice area for people to walk their dogs. There are 2 areas of showers/restrooms. We would love to come back here and stay for a week or more--but this time were only passing through.

This campground is listed in the Michigan list of campgrounds that we received at the welcome center and is off the beaten path but close enough to walk to the little town of Crystal Falls. The park is extremely well kept and even though it is not on the water, the river is about a 1/2 mile away down a designated path. We were only passing thru and stayed the one night but we would like to come back and stay several nights. The campground at the present time furnishes wood for a fire and there are fire rings and picnic tables. There is no pool but we've not used one yet in our travels. The campground is just off Michigan scenic Hwy 2, turn onto M-69E and go 3 blocks, turn left on 2nd St N and you will see signs that say campground and just follow the signs.

This campground gives a Good Sam discount. There are a lot of sites here and some are right on Lake Huron, part of the park is paved but our site was in an unpaved section and with the wind off the Lake, we got a fair amount of dust. We requested and got a full hookup and 50 amp. We are close to Mackinaw City--about 3 miles away. The nearest K-Mart of Wal-Mart is in Cheyboygan which is about 15 miles away. There is no cable and we don't have satellite so we only get 4 channels. We would stay here again. They do charge a $3 reservation fee but check in is swift with prior reservations but this is a big park and you have to find your site yourself but the map and signs are plentiful. There is no laundromat on the premises. Have to go to town unless you have your own washer/dryer.

This park is right off hwy 131 and sites are grass and dirt but level. The park is shady with ample space to walk the dogs. The dumpsters were packed to the brim but we stayed on a Sunday nite and maybe it was because they'd had a busy weekend. Only about 1/4 of the park appeared to be occupied.

This campground does not give any discounts-rate for 1 nite including tax is currently $42. It's a well-laid out park with pull thruough and close to I-71 about 35 miles north of Cincinnati. Don't think there's a lot to do here but we came to visit friends who live close by. The campground has a pool and a pond and appears to have other activities. Sites are gravel and each site has a fire ring and picnic table. There appears to be a few long term residents but most are here for a week or weekend. It's very wooded and the entrance is very appealing visually. We would definite stay here again.

Sites are easy to get into and shady. There's an enclosed area for the pets and even a field close by where pets can be walked. A nice park, nice staff.

Had read previous reviews about unlevel lots and no gravel, but I guess they've really worked hard to correct those items--plenty of gravel--even had a pile over to the side to add to a site if needed. The site was almost level when we pulled in. Spaces are plenty big, and nice and wide even though you are butt to butt in some cases but that's ok. We priced some other parks in the area and there are about 4 or 5 within 2 miles of this one and one in particular is very nice but twice the price with no discounts. This one gives most of the discounts. One of the parks we considered must be new; looks ok but all the trees are young and short so there's no shade. About l/2 of this park appears to be long term people and the front part is for transients. The chain saw carver is still here, but he's 10 lots down(we are in spot 11 and he's opposite lot 1) and we've never heard any noise. There's lots of brochures on things to do. The trolley is a real deal at 50 cents per person per trip and there's about 6 routes or you can buy an all day pass for $2 and go to Dollywood, into Pigeon Forge, over to Gatlinburg. Better-- than driving and looking for a parking spot for a big dolly and in Gatlinburg parking is $5 to $8 per day. We took in a show with oldies from the 50's and up; no dinner but sometimes the quality is poor and the price is high--this one is 2 hours of good entertainment ranging from $10 to $24--Oldies American Theater. We are here for a week and would definitely stay here again. Only drawback is the trash dumpsters--3 OF THEM need emptying and they'll all at the very back of the park.

This campground was a real gem. We were here only 2 nights but the sights are well graveled and the staff friendly. Very close to Boone off Hwy 105--about a mile in to the campground and 7 miles from Blowing Rock. Be careful of your GPS as ours took us downtown Blowing Rock and then off Schull's Mills Road and by Hounds Ears Golf Club and Resort--this is an extremely harrowing road for a 35 foot 5th wheel and big truck. You'd be better off calling for directions or going by a map. It made the mile in off 105 to the campground a real breeze to traverse by comparison. The only drawback is this park only has 4 50 amp hookups--granted, it was cool and we ate outside most of the time and probably only needed 30 but talking with people we met, it had been muggy and hot before we arrived. We'd definitely stay here again--and for much longer.

We are visiting in this area and could not get into the state park for a few days so we stayed here until we could: for 3 nights. The facility appears very well maintained and is the first of many parks where they attempt to recycle, which I like. They have containers for glass, plastic, and aluminum. They also have doggy disposal bags which many parks do not and with 3 little dogs, this was a great thing. The owners are constantly working to clean and keep the facility clean. It's very handy from I-26 (less than a mile total) and we thought very easy to find. The spots have lots of gravel and this was nice when we had thunderstorms every afternoon to keep our area neat. I was a little astounded to find that there was an additional charge for sewer, as I thought a full-hookup indicated sewer but it was spelled out in the Passport America: I just did not read closely. They give a nice discount during the week for 3 days so 1 of our days qualified for that. We would definitely stay here again.

There were no discounts; however, this was an unexpected jewel in the country. We were in Wrens to have a repair made to our generator and knew it would be late before we left. Close to town, the bathrooms were very clean and there are washers/dryers and Wi-Fi. There were lots of TV channels available. We chose a grassy, pull through site. All the sites are either shady or sun and grassy or concrete. This is an extremely well-kept park and the owners live right on the property so even though we didn't get here until after 7 pm, (we'd called about 3 pm); the owner came right out to help us as soon as we pulled up. If we're back that way, we'll certainly stay here. Very nice people; very nice facility. What more can one say?

There are ZERO discounts for this park. It's $25 for 2 people and they close early. We got here at 5:10 pm and they were closed, so we chose a pull through site. Had all the facilities, but a number of the sites were quite trashy. There was even a tree that had been cut down and the wood was stacked all around in front of and behind the camper. There were also boats in sites and cars parked in vacant sites. Oh, and people were drying about 10 towels on their boats. It's right off the interstate and can see the traffic from the park. However, it was hot, and we were having trouble with our generator and needed to stay here to see about a fix the next morning with a local business. Sites were dirt: maybe had gravel at one time, but most was gone.
