Rate reflects KOA club discount. You couldn’t get any closer and not be in the National Monument as this KOA is located right at the entrance. Another typical KOA, gravel everywhere. We were treated to large gravel trucks spreading additional dusty gravel around the park roads both days we were here. The second day, the pool was drained for inexplicable reasons. No discount offered for the loss of this amenity either. The park Wi-Fi barely worked. The good news was that Verizon and AT&T both offered strong service. Having said all of the preceding, given that there is no other full service camping opportunity this close to the park, we would probably stay here again if we were to return.

Easy off/on I-94; some road noise by not objectionable. This park is actually in the Grass Lake area, but very close to Jackson. Park roads paved, sites are hard packed gravel. This is a smaller clean park with mostly seasonal residents, and very friendly office staff. There are several very long pull-through sites that could accommodate just about anything and are all very level. Most sites satellite friendly, good Verizon and AT&T service. Not a fancy park, but a nice, clean place to stop for a night or longer when in the Jackson, MI area.

Park is relatively close to I-71, but no road noise. Approximately 8 miles east of Kings Island amusement park, campground is occupied by many seasonal campers that need to clean up around their sites. There are quite a few pull-through sites occupied by short term campers, however nearly all the pull-through sites are extremely unlevel front to back. We saw several motorhomes with their front wheels off the ground in an attempt to level. The 50 amp service did not work at our assigned site. We reported it to the office and offered to move to another site as there were many vacant, but were told to stay at the current site. The service was fixed when a person arrived that we believe was the owner, and he replaced the circuit breaker. He was quite rude and made us feel as though we were inconveniencing him. Very early the next morning, 5:30 AM, we were abruptly awakened by very loud crashing sounds of the campground dumpsters being emptied. Be aware that if you have made a reservation and need to cancel, the campground will not refund anything regardless of circumstances. There were way to many things wrong with this park to get us to ever consider a return visit.

This park is located about 4 miles south of the Badlands National Park main entrance off Highway 44. If you access the park via I-90 exit 131 you will pass through the National Park. If you advise that you are just passing through they will allow you to pass no charge. There are very few RV campground choices in this area and this park rate reflects that. This is a typical KOA, with gravel roads and sites. WiFi almost worked some of the time. Be aware that there is no cell service within this campground, though there is one working pay phone within the park. Cell service is available within much of the National Park. The park cable TV consists of 13 analog channels. A few of the sites may provide satellite access and if needed specify by phone to the camp ground well before your arrival.

The park accepts cash or check only for the camp fee. This park couldn’t be easier to access from I-29. There are many sites spread out in this fairgrounds, with good proximity to the Sioux Falls metro area. There is a railroad track just outside the west fence, but this appears to be a spur into a business and we saw no rail traffic during our stay. The Fairgrounds is not far off the flight path of the Sioux Falls airport and there were a few incoming flights during the afternoon and early evening hours, but no flights after mid-evening. Good satellite, AT&T, and Verizon reception. The fairgrounds camp does have a host that lives on site in the campground and he made many rounds over the course of the day and night. We felt perfectly safe at this camp ground and would stay here again.

This park is easy to get to from either I-80 or I-35 and is an extremely well maintained RV park. As previously noted, this park does cater to longer term campers, but welcome over-night stays as well. Make certain that you call ahead and reserve as this park has very few vacant sites available most of the time. The office is off-site but they will check you in over the phone and deliver your receipt to your site. We strongly suggest that you stay away from sites 1-64, 291, 293 and 322 as they are smaller, narrower, mostly gravel, and seem to be occupied by the longer term residents. Don’t be concerned about using a back-in site as the road ways and sites are very wide and properly angled for easy access. There is Internet available only for a fee, but we do not know how well it may work as we did not use it. Good Verizon and AT&T cell available. Though the park is in a rural farm area, good shopping is only a couple miles away as well as an amusement park. We had stayed at this park twice over the last couple years and will certainly use it again in our travels through the Des Moines area.

Park is near I-70, but far enough away that there was no highway noise. Nice fenced dog run. Clean park, many seasonal, quiet residents. Wi-Fi weak, but worked most of the time. Roads in the park are all gravel and dusty. Though the park was largely empty we were sandwiched between two trailers blocking their views and unnecessarily crowding two neighbors that were there for the week. Most of the sites are quite narrow and our one slide out was almost on top of the next door neighbor’s picnic table.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Close to I-24, easy access, but no highway noise. Very nice fenced dog run. The campground web site looks better than the park actually is. It is a tired park, dusty gravel roads and sites, with little grass, with the exception of the dog run. Lots of long-term residents. However for a place for the night in the Paducah area it’s acceptable. The new park owners (2013) still have more work to do.

Rate is Good Sams rate. This is a very nice quiet, immaculately clean park and an excellent example of where the park owners display true pride of ownership. Good Wi-Fi. The park does have many very friendly seasonal campers, mostly more mature, few children, all sites clean and kept in the best possible condition. Roads and parking areas are hard-packed gravel smooth, no ruts, no dust. Lush well maintained lawns at all large sites. We have stayed at all three main RV parks in this area and Spring Lake is by far the best. We will certainly include a stop at this park as we pass through central Tennessee again.

This park is hard to rate as it is still under development as a true RV resort. A community center and pool are under construction. This is an Owner type park, but many sites are available for rent. The park currently has 22 sites, all sites fully paved (concrete) including patios. Grounds are very nicely landscaped and maintained, and all interior roads are also fully paved. There is a railroad track to the west of the park, but we only heard two trains during our 3 day stay and both were during the daytime so not an issue. Park accepts cash or check only. The park does include wi-fi. Though cable TV is not yet available there are many stations available off the air. Good Verizon and AT&T cell service are also available. This is by far the best RV park in the area outside of Traverse City, though it is at least 30 miles away. Kalkaska is only about 8 miles straight north with good grocery and fuel stops. This was our first visit to this park, but it will certainly be our park of choice on future visits to this area.

PA rate for 50 amp site. The current owners, who live on site, purchased this park 1.5 years ago and are aggressively working to make many improvements and upgrades. Many very spacious sites that will accommodate all RV types/sizes. The park is 20 miles south of Branson just off Rt 65, which is divided highway and an easy drive to Branson. CG is far enough off Rt 65 that it is very quite. We feel this is a much better choice for a CG than the crowded RV parks in Branson. Good Wi-Fi. Strong AT&T and Verizon LTE, and great satellite access from most of the sites. We highly recommend this park. We spent 4 nights here.

Rate is KOA discount rate. Easy access from I-20, but park is quiet. There are two loops in the park with the south loop, nearer to I-20, and seems to be mostly occupied with longer term residents. The northern loop, nearer the park entry, seems to be more over nighters and where the park hosts also reside. Park is all gravel. We had a pull through in the northern loop and we found that the sewer connections are almost at the back end of the site with the electrical/water/cable about midway. As a result park sewer connection was about 20 feet from our MH sewer connection. CG cable TV limited analog only. Good satellite access and good Verizon LTE and AT&T service.

Rate is senior rate. This state owned park is located about 15 miles north of I-20 Brandon, and about 4 miles east of the Natchez Trail Parkway, a bit off the main Interstate, but well worth the detour. Fully paved roads/sites, great grass and landscaping between sites. The newer sites have wide enough pavement to park your toad along side your RV. Wi-Fi access only near office. Strong Verizon LTE and AT&T. No cable TV, but many OTA TV channels available as well as good satellite access in most of the park. This park allows unlimited length of stay and there are many longer term residents. That being said, residents are very friendly and quiet. Park is extremely clean and safe with park police and park hosts living on site.

Good Sams rate. Easy access from I-20. As previously noted, check-in must be done over the phone, but no problem. Called, gave us two sites to choose from. We took the wider site near the front of the park, then called back and completed registration. Roads and sites all gravel. A basic park. Mostly long term residents, but front of park seems to be kept open for over nighters. Park was mostly quiet with some noise from nearby truck stop. Wi-Fi apparently available but we were not given the access passcode and we felt it was too late in the evening to call again to obtain code. Strong Verizon LTE and AT&T. No cable, but was able to access satellite TV no problem even though park has lots of tall trees.

Rate is PA rate which is cash only. Credit cards taken for Good Sams rate. Roads paved, wide level packed gravel sites with grass between sites. Clean, well groomed park. Park buildings in excellent condition. Dog park is great for our small dogs, fenced fully to ground level. Park just the right distance from I-20 (half mile). No highway noise. Wi-Fi barely usable with only 15% park occupancy. Good Verizon LTE and AT&T service. Many OTA TV channels, and good satellite access from all sites. Great over night or longer stay.

Rate is Good Sams nightly rate. PA rate is $16.50 for one night only. Nice quiet clean park located on the west side of Lubbock with one of the best most secure dog runs we've seen. Roads/sites firm gravel. Wi-Fi worked fairly well except during heavy use periods. One of the best parks in the area to visit Lubbock. All major shopping, Texas Tech, very close. Some traffic noise from nearby highway 82, but we didn't feel it was an issue for us. Good Verizon and AT&T. Many long term residents present, but nothing laying around, well enforced park policies. Everyone friendly. Park management lives on site. Would certainly stay here again when in the Lubbock area.

Rate reflects weekly rate including NV tax for standard site. This resort allows Class A motorhomes only. A true resort, gated, 24x7 security, fully paved roads and sites. Many shrubs, etc provide privacy between sites. Multiple pools/laundry/restrooms located around the resort. Much shopping nearby. Easy access from I-15 but far enough away that no noise. Full cable with analog and HD channels. This is our third stay at this resort over the last year and a half. Would rate a 10 if Wi-Fi was usable. Unusable Tengonet Wi-Fi included in rate. Good Verizon LTE and AT&T.

November rate is $5 less as water is frequently off due to freezing conditions. Rate is less without electric. Hidden Gem. About a mile straight north of I-40 easy access. No highway noise. Campground host lives on site. Rate is cash/check. Reservations available, but must be made more than 24 hrs before arrival. After that, first come, first serve, but CG was almost empty during our two stays. Park/level sites all fully paved. All pull-through sites have 50 amp. No sewer, but dump site available at entrance to CG. No cable TV, no Wi-Fi, but beautiful park with starry night sky and huge sites. Stayed here in October and again in November and this would be our first choice anytime we are in north eastern Arizona.

PA rate for 50 amp nightly. CG is on west side of Albuquerque with easy access from I-40. Some I-40 noise, but not objectionable even on a site near the front of the park. OTA TV and Satellite access good. As previously noted, some of the sites along the west side of park have elevated sewer connections about a foot above grade. Park is clean and all gravel, but doesn't seem to be dusty even with strong winds. Wi-Fi almost not usable, however excellent Verizon LTE and AT&T good. Good satellite access throughout park. We stayed here in October and again in November.

Rate was for 50 amp/nightly and park accepts cash or check only. Easy access from I-40, some highway noise, but not objectionable. Nothing is paved in the park, all gravel and dirt with little grass. CG is on a flat plain so all sites are fairly level. Wi-Fi advertized, but no signal at our site on east side of park. Weak Verizon 3G, strong AT&T. Most of park is occupied by long term but quiet residents. No cable TV, but good satellite access from most sites. We didn't check over the air TV, but should be some OTA available from nearby Amarillo.

As previously noted, it's hard to find fault with free. Casino is north of I-40, El Reno exit, on highway 81. Sites are on a first come first serve basis. We did call about a half hour before our arrival and Casino security let us know how many sites were available. The Casino also allows over night parking in the lot if a full hookup site is not available. All full hookup sites are pull-in or back-in. Felt very safe as security is constantly visible and on patrol. No charge for the sites, but go into the Casino and register with the Security office. We suggest parking with the bedroom toward the Casino if possible as there is some highway 81 noise at night. Sites slope away from parking lot but easy to level. Strong AT&T and Verizon LTE. There is a restaurant in the Casino but be aware that the menu is limited and the area is open to the Casino complete with smoking.

Rate is with National Parks Senior Pass. Easy to find the park a few miles north of highway 60 and well worth the drive. All interior roads are paved, very clean, and huge. Park has buddy sites also available. We used satellite service, but large trees may be a challenge to satellite access at some of the sites. We did see several campers that had over the air antennas deployed, but we did not check for OTA TV. AT&T and Verizon service good. Excellent CG for an overnight or much longer stay.

PA rate. This clean/safe newer CG is approx 5 miles SW of I-24, with good signs and all good roads along the way. CG roads/sites are gravel with a little grass between sites. Many seasonal residents but CG is clean. The ground was soft the night we were there so the leveling jacks needed large pad supports. This park appears to be in a flood plain. We crossed a high levee just after we left the Interstate to the CG. Great satellite access with no large trees in CG, and the WiFi is better than most CG's. No cable TV, but should have access to many over the air stations due to proximity to Paducah. Good AT&T and Verizon LTE service.

Good Sams rate. Older campground near I-40, but far enough away to be very quiet. It is safe with owners living on site. Gravel roads and sites. Open year around. Good cable TV, but all analog and no over the air TV available. Good AT&T and Verizon service. Park has Excellent Wi-Fi at least at site 12. A lot of mature deciduous trees may interfere with satellite access at many of the sites. Nice over night CG.

This could be such a nice park. However we have a serious issue with the nightly discharge of fireworks, some of it actually within the campground but much of it on the beach. Ocean Lakes says they have no control over the beach, but a check of the Horry County fireworks regulations clearly show all adjacent public properties (beach) designated a fireworks free zone. Our two dogs were absolutely traumatized each of the five nights we stayed. On the positive side, this park demonstrates that you can provide decent Wi-Fi at site access, something so many parks advertise but do not deliver on. In so many other ways, this park is a 9 or 10, but due to the lack of concern and helpful action to control and stop the nightly fireworks displays we will have to consider other locations for future stays in the Myrtle Beach area.

The rate was $26, but this campground charges $1/air conditioning unit per night extra, so rate was $28 for us. They also charge the same amount for electric heat. The park is a few miles off US-10, but access is easy. Be aware that their pull-through sights technically meet the definition, but they are not long enough to accommodate your MH with toad connected. Some of the park turns are a bit tight with a motor home to pull through with your toad attached so recommend that you disconnect prior to pulling to your site. We had a power outage that lasted for about 5 hours the evening we were there, but this was not the fault of the park. Power was finally back shortly after midnight, which was very good, as it was still quite warm out and the humidity probably could not have gotten any higher. This park has many seasonal campers, and the grounds around some of those units could have been kept up a lot better than they were. All the campers were very friendly. Sites were all gravel and fairly firm, even with the rain that came the night we were there. There is no cable TV and could not locate any over the air channels. However, our site did have satellite access, though many of the sites are too heavily wooded for that. The WiFi was typical of most parks, almost unusable. Verizon 3G data service and a usable AT&T cellular voice signal was available within the park.

Rate reflects a 50 amp, pull-through site. This park, previously known as "Whispering Pines Family Campground", has new owners and a new park name as of May, 2013. This is a nice, clean park easily accessed from US-131. Park is well landscaped with many younger trees and lots of open spaces for walking or play. The park includes a great adult pool, and separate kiddie play pool. Though there is currently no cable TV or WiFi provided, but we found several over the air HD channels available, and satellite access is also available from just about every site. There is very strong Verizon LTE high speed data and AT&T cellular service within the park. The central restroom is currently closed due to winter freeze damage caused by the previous owners leaving without winterizing. The new owners have already made many, very visible improvements in the park and no doubt will have the central restroom facilities back in service soon. In the meantime, restroom facilities near the pool are available. The owner and family reside within the park. About the only downside in this campground are the gravel roads throughout the park. This could create some dust during the busiest times, but was not an issue while we were there for two nights. We have tried several RV parks within a 30 mile radius of this park and feel that this park is the best in this area we have found. This park would make be an excellent choice for an overnight or extended stay.

The rate reflects the daily rate for a pull-thru super site. This is by far one of the nicest RV campgrounds we have stayed at over recent years. We have stayed at this park four times in the last three years, but this is our first submitted review of this park. The park is extremely well maintained with grass and landscaping always trimmed and neat. All facilities are immaculately clean. The park includes three pools, one indoors, one adult pool and one for the entire family. The previous reviewer complained about the lack of trees. However, there are many sites within this campground that have very large mature trees, while the newer, still growing end of the park have young plantings. Also, while there are several seasonal campers in the park, every site is clean and nice in appearance. About the only way to tell a seasonal from others is that the seasonal sites have a meter on their electrical pedestals. The park provides cable TV with an extensive channel selection, including many in HD. Wi-Fi is now included in the rate. However we found it to vary over the course of the day from excellent, to almost unusable. Many sites would provide good satellite access, and Verizon LTE high speed data and AT&T service is good. This is an excellent choice for either an overnight or extended stay.

Rate reflects senior discount, and rating is based on parks with similar services. The park accepts cash or checks only. This park is another hidden jewel! It is a beautiful, smaller, clean, well landscaped County owned park with an extensive trail/walking system. A swimming area with lifeguards is available within the park for an extra fee. The park is very open with a few younger trees and lots of open spaces with sites extremely spacious. Do be aware that there are only 3 or 4 sites with 50 amp service. There is no sewer connections at the sites but the park does have a very accessible dump station. As noted in previous reviews the park does not take reservations. This is not a problem Sunday through Thursday evenings, but the park does fill up on the weekends.

The rate reflects a GoodSams discount. The park is clean, lawns cut, nice pool, with easy access off I-75. There was some train noise, but not an issue for us. In spite of this appearing to be anewer park, the park roads are in urgent need of repair. Whatever payment may have been there originally is badly buckled and full of pot holes. The electrical pedestals are all located at the back end of the sites and it required that we use an extension cable in our pull-through site. Several pedestals were damaged and badly tilted, but the one are our site was functional. All of the site water supplies had a very small note that we'd never seen before in a campground, "not intended for drinking purposes". There was no mention of this at check-in. Make certain that you bring your own drinking water! There is no cable TV, but there were about 20 over the air channels available, and many sites appear to have good satellite access as there are not many large trees in the park. Also, the pull-through sites were narrow, gravel, and soft. Several of the sites would take a lot of effort to level if even possible.

The rate was for 50 amp service and the rating is based on parks with similar services. This park is a hidden gem. It apparently is used primarily for an annual bluegrass festival in the early fall, but is available for RVers year around. The park is immaculately clean, and manicured, lawn-like grass, with easy access off I-40, making it a great spot for an overnight stop. Sites are very nice grass and firm, even though there had been rains for several days prior to our arrival. There is no cable TV, but there is great satellite access and strong Verizon LTE and AT&T cell service. If you're looking for a campground full of trees, pool, cable TV, WiFi at site, concrete pad, picnic tables, activities, lots of people, this is not the park for you, but in every other way this is an great, quiet place. Sites with 50 amp service are marked with a red and white stripped sticker on outside of the electrical box. Cash or check are preferred, but if they will process a credit card if necessary.

The rate reflects Good Sams discount. This is an easy to access, nice well maintained and landscaped campground with paved roads and most sites paved. The campground is very close to Highway 37, which is a heavily traveled limited access four lane interstate like highway. We stayed in one of the 50 amp premium sites, but unfortunately these sites almost look down on the highway which is less than 300 feet away. If your rig isn't well sound conditioned, you want to sleep with the windows open. Or, if you are a light sleeper much of this campground is probably not for you. Perhaps some of the sites near the back (west end) of the park may have less traffic noise. The CG cable contains analog only stations, and there was limited over the air TV available. Most sites are in the open enough to be satellite friendly. Note that Wi-Fi is available for an extra fee, and be aware that the service is provided by Tengonet (need we say more). Verizon LTE high speed data service was good.

The rate reflects senior discount. This is a nice clean Pennsylvania State Park, with paved roads and wide paved sites. There are 3 camping loops, pets are prohibited in the first loop but are allowed in the second and third loop. There are a limited number of 50 amp sites, but the park is heavily wooded likely allowing you to get by with 30 amp service. Your our choice of sites will be greatly enhanced if you can get by with 30 amp service. The sites in the second loop are much more level and more easily backed into than in the third loop. We were placed in site 81 where backing in was not for the faint of heart, and leveling was almost impossible. We did not evaluate the first loop as we travel with pets. As noted, the park is to heavily wooded for satellite access, but we were able to get more than 20 digital HD sites over the air with our small roof top antenna. Recycling bins are available for those who care about the environment.

This RV park is easily accessible off I-81, but far enough away to avoid all traffic noise. Reservations are easily made via telephone and no advance deposit was required. This park is clean, has many pull through sites with satellite access from many of the sites. WiFi weak but acceptable for emails. Main roads are paved, some sites with some concrete pads while others are gravel. Each site has a concrete pad for picnic table. Heated pool. This is not a fancy "resort", but is a highly functional RV park and is a great place for an overnight stop or longer. Be aware that the Flying J at the RV park I-81 exit does NOT have RV islands and is not easy to get into or out of with an RV/Trailer. There is another Flying J just 3 miles south west on I-81 that has full RV access and fueling islands. We stayed here twice this month and will do so again if our travels take us this way.

80-85% of the park is occupied by semi-permanent/seasonal residents with built up decks around the RV/Trailer, storage building units. However, the area was fairly clean around these areas. The interior park roads are basically packed dirt which would probably be fine after an extended period of dry weather. Unfortunately, the night we stayed had been proceeded by several days of rain and as a result the park roads were barely passable. The pull through sites underlying gravel/dirt were grossly inadequate to provide a stable base for a class A motorhome. We had a great deal of difficulty leveling even after placing large sections of 2x12 under the jacks. The site was so unstable we had serious doubts about being able to pull out of the site in the morning. We did manage to get out, but our previously clean MH looked like we had used it as an off-road ATV. We would certainly have appreciated a phone call from the Owners in advance of our arrival advising of the conditions. We were advised a few days later that the park was only recently purchased by the current owners who were very nice. We would like to believe that they may not have fully appreciated the problems with the pull through sites particularly during the wet part of the New York spring. It's difficult to present the above review given the very nice owners, but the purpose of these reviews is to convey the facts to prospective campers.

The rate reflects a Good Sams Discount, and the park accepts cash or checks only. If you want to stay in the NY Capital District there are very few RV camp choices. From what we can tell, Arrowhead is probably one of the nicest. The park is easily accessed from the NY Thruway (I-90), but just far enough away that there is no highway noise. There is a railroad about a quarter mile away with quite a bit of traffic, but it did not cause a problem for us. The park interior roads and site pads are mostly firm gravel with grass around each site, which had not been cut recently. The campground is heavily wooded, not satellite friendly, and with an active mosquito population, particularly in the evenings. The park provided cable TV and had a full complement of channels, as well as the local channels in HD. We were told that the park did have a Wi-Fi network but we were unable to detect any signal on any of our computers or tablets at our site #22. Fortunately, we did have good access to Verizon LTE high speed data. We would stay here again if in the area.

As previously noted, this park is no longer a KOA. This park is about 5 miles from I-81. The road leading to the park is an easy drive and access to and inside the park is easy. There is a Pilot Truck stop at the I-81 exit, and the road in front of the Pilot seems to have constant traffic that backs out onto the road to the park. The park has some paved roads while the sites are all gravel with some small patches of grass between the sites. Wi-Fi was barely usable and very slow, and that was on an evening with light occupancy in the park. There is a nice dog run with agility equipment. There is also a restaurant in the camp store, though we did not try it.

To be upfront, we are not normally KOA fans. However, this park was probably one of the nicest KOA's (and most expensive) that we've ever stayed at. The rate included a 10% discount. The park is immaculately landscaped with very large sites and a lot of large open spaces with manicured lawns. The sites are nice level gavel. There is also a great dog run, nice pool, and friendly staff. There is no cable TV, and mostly only weak over the air TV stations available. Most sites do have good satellite access. There was no night time security lighting, at least in our area of the park. The Wi-Fi was not functioning in our area of the park the night we were there. Water pressure at our site was a bit low, 20 to 30 psi most of the time. This park is quite a distance from I-81 or I-66, so probably better as a destination, but would also make a great overnight stay if you're in no hurry as was our case.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Pros: Staff and guests very friendly. As noted in an earlier review, the front part of the park is very shady, and the back part of the park is sunny, grassy and larger sites Cons: As noted in earlier reviews, all roads and sites are unpaved (crushed shells) and are very dusty, though everyone really observed the 5 mph speed limit in the park. Sites and access are a little tight for larger motorhomes but doable. Wi-Fi had strong signal but was so slow it was almost unusable. Verizon 3G only and weak. AT&T cellular also weak. No digital HD stations on campground cable, but several HD stations are available over-the-air.

Rate reflects a 3 night special. This park is fairly new, only about 3 or 4 years old, and I suspect that their primary motivation is to sell lots. The first phase of the park is complete, while the second phase has yet to be built. This park is trying to be a very upscale facility, and though it is very nicely landscaped, great club house, heated pool and clean, it has several unexpected weaknesses. The park allows both motorhomes and trailers. Some of the sites are fully paved while many of the sites are grass with a paved pad for a picnic table. Wi-Fi is included in the rate, and though we had a strong signal at our site (123) it was so slow it was unusable. The Wi-Fi service is provided by TengoNet which likely speaks for itself. We ended up using our Verizon cellular data access which did have the high speed LTE service. Staff, while friendly, did not do a very good job of letting us know about all the park activities. Parks of this type usually have a calendar style sheet with a list of all the activities and times for the current month, but not here. Also there is no cable TV available, almost unheard of in a resort of this type, and very little over-the-air TV is available in this central Florida location.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Friendly staff, extremely clean campground, all sites full concrete pads, propane available, good AT&T cell service and Verizon 3G data only available. Cons: Wi-Fi had strong signal, but so slow it was almost unusable; it is free, but furnished by TengoNet (need we say anymore). More than 30 cable TV channels provided, but no digital HD channels included. Very limited over-the-air TV available as nearest TV stations are about 60 miles to the south in Jacksonville, Florida.
