This is a beautiful, well-maintained campground with courteous, responsive staff. We paid the listed rate for the regular pull-trough sites (premium sites are available), but received a free night on their current "stay 3-get a free 4th night" special. Free cable offerings were excellent. WiFi was readily available but of average speed. The restrooms have been newly redone with ceramic tile and upgraded fixtures. The price is quite reasonable for a popular destination area and with the amenities included. We will gladly return.

The campground was clean, and visibly well maintained. The one-night discount sites are grassy back-ins on a hill near to the office. The sites are fairly level. We paid the Passport America rate far a Water/Electric/Sewer site.

This is a clean, well maintained campground with moderate width but generous length sites. Office and workcamper staff were friendly and helpful, and interested in solving potential problems. The campground does not take reservations, and had no Water/Electric/Sewer sites available when we arrived seeking such a site for a 5 day stay. The office worker told us that a number would be available the next day, if we wished a Water/Electric-only site for the night, and could move to the desired type of site the following day. Problem solved. The park is near to most Shipshewana attractions. Our only caveat about the park involves their WiFi setup. The 1st 30 minutes each day (starting and continuing from your 1st log-on of the day) is free. After that one faces a $3 daily or $8 for 3-day charge. This is a major irritant in an age where the majority of campgrounds offer a form of free internet connection. In fact, we went to breakfast each day at McDonald's to use their free internet....passing local eateries miles closer to the park to do so.

Mildly rustic setting, but extremely well maintained campground. Programs and trail rides appear thoughtfully organized and executed. Close enough to Gettysburg to have access to historic sites without being in the midst of suburbia. On our "we will return" list.

We paid the Good Sam rate. This former KOA park appears tired and very worn, with much deferred maintenance. Just after we signed in, two people (a male and a female) came to the office to report a lack of hot water in the shower rooms. Office person was attempting to find someone to work on the problem. We were charged for cable, but it simply was not working anywhere in our end of the park. After being assigned our site, we were told WiFi probably wouldn't reach that end of the park, but that the lounge was open 24/7 and that it would function there. We apparently did have one of the few level sites in the park. We believe this park is definitely not worth 50 percent of their charged rate, and we will not return.

We paid the Good Sam rate. Pro: The sites are large, the staff friendly and helpful with information. Generally, the park seemed well maintained. Con: Whoever engineered the sewer connections had 40-foot motorhomes with far rear dump valves in mind. My 23-foot travel trailer would have required a 30-foot sewer hose to reach the sewer line. The park felt barely in use, with few others here. This former KOA felt deserted.

We paid the Passport America rate. NOTE: Although PA is available Monday through Thursday of the week, one may only have the discount rate for two days. This is a clean, well-managed, quiet campground with a large pond, level sites, and free WiFi. The office and store staff are courteous and friendly. We will gladly return again.

We paid the Passport America rate. The campground's full name doesn't appear at the entrance; just "RV PARK", and "$25 a night", and "Good Sam". The sites are large, level, and clean. Catch-and-release fishing is free at the large pond. Wi-Fi is fast and free, and all hookups worked well. The long-bearded owner seemed very laid-back. As we arrived, he was leaving in his pickup, and paused to tell us, "Pick the spot you like best, and I'll catch up with you when I get back." This was a great overnight stop, and would also be an excellent place to simply kick back and read some novels. It is, however, far from any stores or service locations.

We paid the Good Sam rate. This is a clean, well landscaped campground with large, mostly pull-through sites. It is on a Civil War battlefield. The park is noticeably quiet, with an absence of road noise. The office staff are friendly and helpful, providing several handouts and directions to local attractions, services, and shopping. It is a fine, convenient location to base camp while enjoying the Chattanooga area.

We paid the Passport America rate for our site at this distinctly no-frills campground. The park has easy access from Interstate 40. The office staff was pleasant. The campground has gravel roads. Four blacktopped, 30 amp pull-through sites and a few additional 50-amp pull-through sites were readily available. Most of the other sites appeared to be occupied on a seasonal basis. The bathroom facilities were hard-used but clean. The free Wi-Fi was so slow one simply quit trying to use it. Overall, this is a decent over-nite stop at a bargain-basement price.

We paid the Good Sam rate. This park is literally on a mountain top. One reaches it via a paved, curvy, and somewhat steep 1/4 mile private road. The sites are level, well-drained, and have a great view. The Wi-Fi is free and fast. The temperature atop the mountain is 10 degrees cooler than Hot Springs (where it hit 104 during our stay). We found the hostess/manager to be a charming and informative character. This is a great campground.

We paid the Good Sam rate. The park is a study in contrasts. It boasts a beautiful location, good layout, and is well shaded by many large trees. The teenager who checked us in and took us to our site was pleasant and efficient. But there is a dark side. The Wi-Fi was free and functioned. The office porch is filthy, and the office is dark and smells. the laundry room is semi-clean at best, although the broken machines from 2 years ago have been replaced by functioning well-used ones. The pre-teen manager's son roars about the campground on a quad-runner, stirring up dust from the gravel roadway. Still, it is an acceptable place to overnight, or to base camp while touring Van Buren or Fort Smith.

We paid the Passport America rate. This park has large, pull-through sites in a largely graveled area. It is clean and well laid out. Part of the staff are friendly. Six vintage restored travel trailers are available for nightly rental. The park location offers easy access to the old Route 66 highway eastward through Albuquerque. This park is close to Interstate I-40, and the road noise may bother some. We will gladly return again.

We paid a discounted rate based on our Passport America affiliation. Access to and from the interstate is quick and simple. Staff are friendly and helpful. One is escorted to one's site. Interior roads are paved, and sites are level. A free shuttle to a local steakhouse is available. The campground provides free coffee and donuts for campers from 8-9 each morning. A water park is directly adjacent to the campground entrance.

This is a decent value for an overnight stop. It is a convenient on/off from the interstate. Wi-Fi is available at the office building in the laundry room. Although the RV sites are adjacent to semi-permanent mobile homes, the park is quiet, shady, and clean.

This is a no-frills park located behind an antique mall. There is no bathhouse, but the restroom inside the mall is available during business hours. Very pleasant owner-managers. This is an inexpensive bargain stop when visiting Branson, which is 15 miles away. We paid the Passport America rate. We'll gladly return when in the area again.

We paid the Passport America rate. This is an older park that is reasonably well maintained. We have stopped here almost annually, and find the PA-assigned sites to be clean and nicely shaded from the afternoon/evening sun. Campground staff are consistently courteous, but their moods are visibly "variable".

This is an exceptionally well cared-for and attractive park with a gated entrance and exit. There is a diner-restaurant on the premises (a nice feature), but the food operation business is for sale and there appears to be some dissension in the ranks of diner staff. Wi-Fi is now free, but tends to be a bit slow at times. Modem hookups are available in the lodge, and these are lightning fast. This a good rural campground in which to kick back or to sample the features of the Ocala Silver Springs area. We have achieved geezer status, and for those our age I'd have rated this a "10", but the lack of playgrounds results in our overall "9" rating.

This is a suburban park located just off Route US-19 in Port Richey. The majority of the sites are permanent or seasonal, but this is a Passport America campground as well, and member sites are available year-round as long as one makes reservations for a minimum of seven days. The management is quite friendly, competent, and firm. Although this is an older park, it is exceedingly well cared for, and makes a great base camp location from which to sample the Orlando and Tampa-area attractions. Or just kick back, which is another prime reason for our continued visits.

We camped here as participants in a 200-RV Passport America rally. The cited rate was included in our rally fee. Three years ago, new ownership began to rebuild a once-fine park that had fallen into disrepair. It is now a thoroughly enjoyable campground with many features. One of these is a small lake/swimming area with a mighty fountain that is located in a large ravine which bisects the park. There is a fee for Wi-Fi access, which we elected not to use. We hope to return in the future.

Small, well-upgraded campground with an enthusiastic, friendly young couple as owner/managers. It is a fine overnight stop and is on our "glad to return again" list.

This is an almost automatic overnight stop for us on our trek down I-95 to Florida. The rate listed included our AARP discount for a full-hookup pull-through site, which was level and paved. The park decor is aged and a bit tacky - though freshly painted. The entire "SOB" complex may be undergoing a renewal or freshening. Free Wi-Fi is now available in the RV park and the motel offices. And some of the tackiest merchandise has disappeared from the shops.

We paid the daily Passport America rate for our 18-day stay (one must stay a minimum of 7 days to qualify for that PA rate). This is a suburban RV park, the majority of whose residents are older seasonal types who arrive about late October and depart about April. A limited number of sites are retained for shorter-term visitors. We would recommend reservations. The park is almost 36 years old, and has had constant improvements and upgrades. It is proudly managed in a friendly manner and maintained by several generations of its founding family. It makes a fine base camp for visits to Disney, Tampa, and other attractions: or simply to kick back and relax with a sequence of novels. Two items to note: (1) As with most older parks, individual sites are not overly large, and (2) the Wi-Fi is almost totally limited to the combination library/computer room (and one must bring one's own laptop). We've visited yearly for 3 of the past 4 years. And we will return again.

The nightly rate we paid reflects the Good Sam Club discount. It is a Passport America park, but those rates do not apply on weekends. This is a very clean and well-maintained park with outstanding staff. Our unit required repairs from our emergency road service almost immediately after our arrival at the park. Although the service person arrived after dark, park staff had stayed to escort him to our site...and checked in on us later. The Wi-Fi is free and strong. Although bordered to the north and east by pine trees, the campground itself has no shaded areas. This is the only reason I rated it as a 9 rather than a 10. From October to late December, campers are offered a free continental breakfast from 7-9 AM, and we were told that this would be again offered for a time in the Spring. Clearly, we will return.

Park has been renovated and is much better managed than the last time we stayed some years ago. Staff was friendly, helpful, and very professional. We were escorted to our site, which was located among tall pines, as are virtually all the sites. The adjacent lake includes a bird sanctuary.

We received a 10% AARP discount on the standard rate. The campground was built ahead of its time, but at this point is showing its age, although it is kept clean and well-maintained. Pull-through sites are virtually always available, even on busy nights. The campground and adjacent shop, restaurant, and amusement area appear to have been significantly refreshed within the past 2 years, and the quality of merchandise in the "Myrtle Beach Shop" has definitely moved up a notch from the tawdry offerings of a few years back. This is still a good and convenient overnight stop.

We paid the Passport America nightly rate. This is an owner-operated campground and they do so in an open, friendly, and helpful manner. The park itself is extremely well-maintained. We have stopped here multiple times and always have a pleasant experience. One note: the campground is only several hundred yards from I-10 and there is enough road noise to bother those who are very sensitive to such sounds. It has never bothered us.

I failed to do adequate research on campgrounds in the Dayton area, and as a result ended up at this over-the-hill park. Despite its listed attributes, it is a fading badly. "Overniter" sites appear to be about 12 in number, and are in an uneven grassy area adjacent to the main park. We found that our assigned spot lacked water and sewer connections, despite paying for and being assigned to a listed "full hookup" spot. We arbitrarily moved to another nearby spot which had connections (the office had closed at 4:15 PM on Saturday). The electrical box was so corroded one feared major problems; but the 30 amp receptacle worked. We were glad to leave EARLY the next AM. We will never return.

This is a great campground for the area. Our stay here was with a major club rally. Our several hundred members' rigs were provided working hookups as promised. The sites were clean and convenient. The Wi-Fi was strong and instant. The tracks several hundred yards away do carry frequent freight trains, but one readily adjusts to the sounds. The campground provides area maps, lists of potential destinations, and other information which really make planning and enjoying local attractions and tours a simple task. We will gladly return.

We paid the campground's Passport America member rate for full hookups. This relatively new (3+ years) park has excellent level sites on terraced areas, with many pull-throughs available. As noted, picnic tables are situated only in the pavilions. Everything was clean, modern, and easy to access with the RV. One lack is shade, for there are no trees near the campsites. Our visit included several Murphy's law situations. The cable TV connection (which was working just fine on other sites) failed at our site. Office staff provided a 75' coaxial cable to hook us to a nearby vacant location, but the resultant pictures were a bit more fuzzy than the reception others experienced. Wi-Fi signal strength was rated by our PC as "very good", but the new Wi-Fi system refused to recognize our ancient laptop to complete the connection. Through it all, park staff were unfailingly concerned and helpful. Although our score dropped a bit with the minor problems, we also realize that these were glitches unique to our experience, and were not park-wide shortcomings. We will gladly stay again.

This RV park has a strange mix of attributes. The staff is friendly and helpful. Sites are level, graveled, and well-drained, and the park is clean. It is a Passport America park, which explains the listed nightly rate. But it is a no-frills park, with no showers or restrooms, programs, nor designated play areas or equipment for children. With full hookups, It obviously serves self-contained RVs. It does have a small laundry with hard-used but well-working machines. The rating assigned represents the highest possible given the features of this well-run park. It is, however, a bona fide gem for those seeking to tour the Savannah area.

The rate listed above was the Passport America rate (they limit PA to one night) which we paid our 1st night. We stayed a 2nd night to complete RV repairs, and paid $34 at the Good Sam rate. This is a great overnight stop for folks going north or south on I-95, or for those attending shows at the Roanoke Rapids Theater at Carolina Crossroads. It's easy to navigate the park. WiFi and Cable TV are strong and free. The absence of trees & shade cut my rating a bit, but we will certainly return.

This large campground is directly adjacent to Cook State Forest Park. The smiling, courteous staff were in an office with a small but well-equipped store. The park has clean, spacious campsites and many recreational features and programs for youth. We camped as part of a reunion group with individual reservations that arrived over a 30-hour period. All sites were next to one another and ready, as promised. We will gladly return!

The cited price included our Good Sam discount. This excellent park appears to add new upgrades each year. They intend to totally rebuild the riverside sites over the coming winter season. Campground staff are invariably cheerful and helpful, and the sites are spacious and clean. Although the newest section will need another 15 years to produce much shade from the young trees, this place is a gem, and has become a pleasure to visit year after year.

There are actually 2 adjacent Ja-Mar Parks. Ja-Mar North is for long-term residents. Ja-Mar South (directly on U.S.19) is the one offering overnight and short-term sites. Ja-Mar is a suburban campground, and about 80% of the sites are filled with seasonal residents. This is the type of park one visits to simply kick back and relax, or to visit local attractions in this Tampa area. It is not for those seeking country or rural atmosphere. Everything is immaculately maintained. Office staff are cheerful and helpful. We paid the Passport America nightly rate for the two weeks of our stay. A special note: Passport America nightly rates are available only for stays of 7 days or more.

This is probably the nicest "overnight" campground that we have encountered (and thus use each year on our Florida trips). Exceptionally helpful owner-staff. One is always escorted to the campsite selected, and aided in parking with easy access to hookups. It should be mentioned that road noise from I-10 is present, as the park is only about 100 yards from the Interstate. We aren't bothered by this but some may be more sensitive. We paid the Passport America rate for full hookups, with a discount for cash payment.

We paid the Passport America discount daily rate (for which the minimum stay is 7 days - and there is no maximum period on the rate). This suburban Port Richey "travel park" is an older facility that is still owned and managed by its founding family. The hospitality, modernization, and upkeep is top notch. About 65% of the park residents are seasonal. This is basically an adult park (but children as visitors and/or overnighters are welcome). It is a great place in which to settle to savor the Tampa/Tarpon Springs/Clearwater area attractions.

We paid the Good Sam discount rate for full hookups. This a small and exceptionally neat RV park. Staff are cheerful. Virtually all sites are shaded by large, mature trees, and the size of the sites varies. We noted that site assignments were carefully made to reflect the size (and presence or absence of slides) of each RV. Virtually the entire park are is graveled, and contrasting colors of gravel are used to define the road and site areas. Fishing (without license) is available in the lake at the edge of the campground.

Although full hookups were available, and some modest shade from trees between some sites, this is otherwise a desert no-frills campground. It is OK as a base camp for the Monument Valley/Four Corners area. It was clean, scenic, and quiet. The town has a population of 300, a gas station, 3 eateries, 2 Indian merchandise shops, and 2 multipurpose 7/11 type stores. Most are well-worn, and it would be best to restock before landing here. We were told that few camp here in July, but that August and September were "busy". We were the only campers in the park on the 2-night weekend.

We paid the Good Sam discount rate for full hookups. The campground was neatly maintained. All sites are pull-throughs with full hookups. The laundry was spotless, with very new machines in working order. The office staffer was polite and pleasant. About 50 percent of the RVs in the park appear to be present for an extended period.

We paid the Good Sam discount rate for full hookups. This is a most unusual campground. One reaches it by driving up a road over the West Memphis protective levee to an area on the low bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. From those campsites (or from the bluff-edge benches provided) one can watch barge traffic being pushed up or down the river throughout the day. The river view campsites are all pull-through with full hookups, were well-graveled, but were treeless. The campground staff was hospitable and good humored. We consider this a great place to simply kick back and relax.

We paid the Good Sam discount rate. This is a nice campground that is beginning to slip downward. Pro: The sites are generously shaded by mature trees, and all hookups are in working order. The teen-age girl running the office was polite and competent, and showed us to our site. Con: Many of the sites need a new layer of gravel, as does the inner camp drive. The existing stones have begun to sink into the dust and mud. Two of the 3 washers in the laundry were is service, but both groaned so noisily that one feared they couldn't finish their loads. The laundry was covered with lint and dust, and fixtures and picnic tables throughout the park show signs of recent neglect. A plumbing firm was based in a small building at the rear of the park. It seemed as though the adults were having the children run the park. They were trying, but adult park maintenance support was needed .

We paid the Good Sam discounted rate. The campground has large sites and trees. The cable TV hookup is wired only to every other campsite (see later comment). It has an indoor pool, and complimentary newspapers and coffee, and free muffins from 7:30-9 AM. When entering the office, we waited over 5 minutes for someone to appear. The staffer was polite but visibly unmotivated when signing us in. He neglected to tell us that we'd been put on a site with no cable (and had no cables to loan to reach an adjoining site). We also noted that at the bottom of the receipt we received was a statement reading, "WARNING: THIS PARK SUBJECT TO FLASH FLOODING." As there was a "dry" forecast for the next 24 hours, we decided to stay. We would have rated the campground a 9 if the customer service had equaled the facilities.

When this park was built about 40 years ago it was way ahead of its time with its generous pull-through sites and full hookups. With the low rates charged (the listed rate credited an AARP discount) and location, it has been a consistent bargain location for overnight stops for us since the 1970s. Despite the increasingly tacky merchandise in the shops surrounding the campground, the park itself has been well maintained. The facilities are in decent repair, although the basic park has remained unchanged for many years. Unfortunately, upkeep efforts cannot overhaul the long-term decline of some systems. During our stay this time, a faint sewer odor kept wafting over the park. If we encounter this again, we may have to rethink our potential future use of the facility.

The charge cited included use of a 15 percent-off coupon and all taxes. This campground is somewhat high-priced, but its' nearly ideal location on Interstate 95 makes it a irresistible stop for those travelling long distances north or southward. It is within several hundred yards of the highway, so some road noise filters into the park. We do not consider it to be bothersome. After an unsettled year, the new ownership has initiated upgrades to campground maintenance and personnel. We will gladly return again.

It is difficult to give too detailed a review, as numerous road delays caused us to arrive after office hours, and because we then departed at dawn the next morning before the office opened. Despite the campground's recorded message that the office would be open until 9 PM, we arrived at 8:30 to find the office closed and dark. However, there was a well lighted after hours registration desk outside the door. The honor system asked for personal and credit card information on the envelope which was to be submitted through a door slot. Unfortunately, there was no list of rates or charges. Nonetheless, we submitted the information, and called back via cell phone the next day to get the charge information. The park appeared neat and well-maintained, with many convenient pull-throughs and shaded sites. The charge shown included all taxes. We consider the KOA rate a bit stiff for the services, but if the situation were repeated would use the campground again.

This is an older but greatly upgraded park, but many lot sizes have more constricted widths and lengths than newly-designed campgrounds. The Office, the 3 Laundry facilities and 2 Bath/shower buildings, and about one-third of the campsites appear to be new. There is a walk-through gate from the back of the park to the side lot of the Wal-Mart super center next door. We found the campground functionally quite good but visually less than appealing. Several campsites had very soft sand, which made entry and exit a cautious effort to avoid bogging down. Although we will gladly return, we would also inspect our assigned site for firmness before parking there. The price cited was the Passport America rate for a full hookup site with all taxes included.

This is an ownership park with facilities to rent. It is a modern and extremely well-maintained campground. Laundry facilities were virtually new and spotless. The staff are courteous and responsive, and are clearly proud of the facility. Of special note is the small Cafe located just inside the park's gate. Open 6 days a week from 7 AM to 7 PM, it features good food and great coffee at very reasonable prices. The owner/waitress adds an upbeat note to each visit. The cost cited was the Passport America rate and all taxes for a full hookup site including cable TV. We will return.

This small campground is extremely hospitable and well-maintained. Staff are upbeat and helpful. The park is virtually alongside Interstate 10, and there is a constant murmur of road noise. We did not find that bothersome, although some may object. The daily rate shown is the Passport America rate for full hookups, and included all taxes. While not a destination park for us, it is thoroughly pleasant and will remain on our itinerary when we travel this way again.

The price stated was for full hookups. This is an exceptionally neat and attractive, well laid-out park with nicely graveled sites and mature, healthy shade trees. The office is also a gift shop, but has no RV supplies. The staff is friendly. It is quite close to the highway, and road noise may bother some folks, but not us. The laundry is somewhat small (two washers and two dryers) for this size campground, which may result in a delay in accessing its use. There is a $2 per additional visitor to the campsite charge, with a maximum of four guests. We will gladly return if again in the area.

The price cited included a Good Sam discount and taxes. This is a newer park with all pull-through sites. It was extremely neat and well cared for. The staff was pleasant and efficient. The bathrooms included handicapped showers and toilet stalls and a wheelchair-accessible sink. The only reason we didn't rate this campground a "10" was the lack of mature shade.

The rate included a Good Sam discount. This is a pleasant and exceptionally well maintained small campground with mature trees and shade, and very level sites. Our campground host escorted us to the campsite, and took the time to make us aware of the park's recycling containers and other features. While not far from the highway, there was only a minimal level of road noise. We would gladly return again. (800) 689-8453

This is a quiet rural campground surrounded by farmland. Camp staff were pleasant and helpful. We used it as an overnight stop while touring Indian mounds in the area. It is definitely a family-oriented campground. There were many (basically happy) kids and their sounds on the grounds, although everyone respected the 11 PM to 7 AM quiet hours rule. The pull-through sites are on grass, and the underlying soil can be soft in wet weather. The price quoted is the nightly Passport America rate. We will gladly return if we are in the area again.

Ours was a single overnight visit while traveling. While far from physically ideal for overnights, this is an amazing campground basically directed to horse-campers, trail hikers, small boat fans, and family outings of more than one or two nights. For those uses, our scoring would be two steps higher. The facilities are rustic but well-maintained. The staff is friendly, helpful, and very concerned that one enjoys one's visit. Our stay was at the end of the season, and the campground was largely empty. We would have no hesitation about visiting again.

On our arrival, the campground still was showing signs of the Hurricane Ike winds the preceding day. While the staff was working at cleanup, branches still littered many sites and the blown-down entry sign couldn't be repaired until the electric company shut down the current. However, the electric power was on. This is a decent overnight park with a few negative "quirks". Overnight visitors must back up approximately 100 feet from the office to pull into an area which appears reserved for them (it was the same last year, too). The staff, while friendly and helpful with minor issues, appear unimaginative about possible improvements (such as making signs that have visitors stop about 100-150 feet from the office to avoid the troublesome backup process).

The campground was scenic and immaculate, the staff was eager to please, and the owners continue to upgrade the facilities. The score selected is a round-up from 9.5. Absolute perfection would have some more shade available, but the young trees will require about 10 years to reach that stage. The rate quoted included the Good Sam discount.

Our three nights here were an extremely pleasing experience. Staff are welcoming, friendly, and helpful. The entire park is scrupulously maintained: including the semi-permanent sites. With well-kept indoor and outdoor pools, lakes, adequate laundry and campground stores and almost 1/4 mile its own ocean beach. Even we two senior citizens, are convinced that this is a great destination park. The nightly rate we paid included an Internet special 20 percent discount.

This is a new park. It is well laid out, and all sites are pull throughs. Grass, bushes, and trees have been newly planted and are struggling, but being cared for. A pool and clubhouse are proposed but not yet constructed. The campground was very clean, and staff were welcoming and helpful. The park has potential, and makes a fine overnight stop. We paid the Good Sam rate.

We have stopped at this campground in most of the past 20 years. It has always been a premium but ideally located overnight stop along Interstate 95. Americamps at Ashland changed ownership last year. It is under lackluster new management. Staff acts pro forma polite but uninterested. Trash bags left at sites by the previous night's campers weren't collected until 4:30 PM...including the one we were assigned at 3:30 PM. The garage/maintenance area is now parked full of large commercial vehicles and campground scraps...not an attractive view. This has become pricey camping for no-longer-premium camping.

This is an excellently designed and maintained campground. Primarily an overnight park for I-95 travelers, it is too convenient a location to ignore. Staff members are efficient. Large motor homes pulling bigger trailers will have to drop those in an adjacent parking area in order to fit pull-through site lengths. The rate we paid reflected a Good Sam discount and a $1-off Holiday Travel Park coupon.

This park has been remade over the past few years. It has huge, open, shaded pull-through sites with a thick carpet of pine needles. The staff is pleasant. This fine overnight campground is just off Interstate 95. We paid the Good Sam rate for full hook-ups (but not the optional cable TV).

This small campground is directly on US 1, and has a ocean fishing/boating dock directly across the road. It's a mostly laid-back place with a potential major "con" item. Railroad tracks (completely hidden by trees) run 200 feet behind the park. If railroad noises irritate, this may not be your best bet. On the other hand, it is extremely neat and very affordable. It makes a good base camp for the Cocoa Beach and Melbourne areas. We paid the Passport America rate for full hookups. We will gladly return.

This is a neatly kept place with spacious, shaded, and grassy sites. Originally a mobile home park, it is now purely an RV campground. The docks, marina, and swimming/scuba areas are nice features, and the staff are friendly. We liked it so much we extended our stay by a day. We paid the Passport America rate for full hook-ups, which was a great bargain for the Florida Keys!

This park was a welcome surprise. Everything was neat and clean, and the concrete pads were surrounded by lush grass. The staff was pleasant and responsive. We felt the campground's Trailer Life Directory rating was much too low. We paid the Passport America rate for full hook-ups.

This campground was ahead of its time when designed over two decades ago. Now, it is a worn, but well maintained and better-than-average overnight stop. The park is convenient and inexpensive. Our rate included the AARP discount & taxes for full hookups. We use this place every year.

This is an immaculately maintained mid-sized rural campground with great scenic views of the mountains from virtually every campsite. Located 2.8 miles from Luray, virtually all noise of civilization (the occasional faint drone of a truck in the distance can be noticed late at night). This park is an exception to the "rule" that all campgrounds must be within hearing of a railroad. It does have an Internet cafe in the office building (the rate was $2 for the 1st hour, and $1 for each hour thereafter). Were this not such an excellent place we'd consider the daily costs excessive. The rate cited was the Good Sam member rate including taxes.

This was a beautiful, recently expanded campground run by agreeable and helpful people. All park facilities were maintained at a high level. The recent expansion means that a minority of available sites have significant shade, as the new plantings will need 5 to 10 years to achieve significant size. We received our Escapees discount and paid $28 per day for full hookups, including all taxes.

This was a pleasant older KOA in its 3rd year of renewal by younger owners. The sites are wide, and some have side-by-side hookups. The restrooms were freshly painted and extremely clean. The entire park is in a grove of cottonwood trees on the edge of town. We paid the KOA discount rate, which included local taxes.

This neatly kept campground is perched along the crest and on the top of a large hill. The pool, we were told, was a "salt-water pool". Although we supposedly paid the Passport America rate, we can't be sure. No daily rate structure was posted, and the staff member spouted a complex series of rates involving 30 & 50 amp electric service, pull-throughs, etc. We found it hard to believe we were on a $50 site.

This is largely a "rally park". Blocks of 40' by 70' grass sites are divided by paved roads. Although there are few sites having picnic tables and no shade trees, this is by far the most convenient park to the Amana villages. Everything was well-maintained and in working order, and campground staff was friendly and helpful. We paid the Passport America rate for a water & electric hookup site.

This was a virtually new campground. The park staff members were friendly, and the sites were gravel and level. In the office, there was also a computer available for internet use. There are 16 air-conditioned camping cabins. The only negative is the total absence of shade. It will take 15 years for the small trees to achieve any real size. We paid the Passport America rate, which included local taxes.

This is an older park with small sites which are very tight. There is virtually no place to park a tow vehicle adjacent to ones' trailer. The perimeter of the park is fenced, and one can not get to the river to "riverwalk." The park is visually unappealing, though the staff was friendly. We supposedly paid the Passport America rate, although we question whether they actually give a 50 percent discount. They do not post their daily rates.

This is an impeccable campground. The office staff is formidable on first meeting, though pleasant afterward. They will deliver phone messages to the sites. All sites and roads are asphalt-paved, and each site has an additional paved parking space. The park has a small picnic park with pavilion and pond. It also contains a huge recycling center which is well maintained. We paid the Good Sam rate, which included local taxes. There is a Wal-Mart within 2 miles.

This was an extremely well-maintained park with pleasant staff, gravel roads, and a majority of tree-shaded sites. The tree-shaded sites are broad, but those with taller motorhomes and fifth-wheels should be cautious about limb clearances overhead. Park signs warn of high water pressure and recommend using a water pressure regulator. We paid the Good Sam rate, which included $2 in taxes.

The park is surprisingly well shaded. It's located in a grove of trees in the midst of featureless plains. The nightly rate was with Good Sam Discount, and included $2.55 in taxes. Campsites were a bit narrow at one end of the park, but were on concrete. We gave a high rating not only because of the physical attributes of the park, ut also due to the operating family's attitude and performance. During a tornado alert, they went to each RV and gathered everyone in the park into the basement of the office building until the threat had passed.

Great campground with friendly, helpful staff. A good place to "kick back" and relax if one stays in the park, or as a base camp for highlight attractions in the Tampa/Sarasota area. Big and small rigs alike are made to feel welcome. Nicely equipped camp store. We stayed for a full week (getting the weekly rate). This is the 5th year we've stayed at Quail Run, and it just keeps getting better. We'll be back next year.

A very nice older park being upgraded by new owners. It is exceedingly convenient to reach, one edge of the campground being only 150 yards from I-10.

We will gladly use the campground again.
