Stayed here for several weeks while working in the area. Management was friendly and knowledgeable. Park is very well maintained! Excellent dog area with bags available. This will be our go-to park when traveling north of Atlanta on I-75. We paid a monthly rate so I'm not sure on the nightly rate.
We are giving this resort a low rating because we felt it was very poor for the average RV'er. This park caters to its seasonal clientel with approximately 95% of its sites already filled by an assortment of RVs, all of which have a wide assortment of add-ons, decks, and decorations. The seasonals were not friendly, and they were loud and rowdy at all hours during the weekends. I will say, however; that M-Th the park is very quiet. The roads are narrow and this is not a big rig friendly park at all. Some very tight turns, not helped by the seasonals parking. I would avoid this park if your length is much more than 30 feet. Very un-level. Our fire pit was filthy. If you are looking for a weekend "party" campground, you will like this place, as they do seem to have a lot of kids activities and a bar w/band which we could hear even on our spot and late at night. All of this for $40 dollars a night. Way to expensive for its amenities, which seem to be more in the way of activities and not in infrastructure. We will not return.
Rate posted is on a monthly rate with cash. This campground charges additional if you pay with a check or even more with a credit card. Lots of long term campers here, although 99% are very neat and tidy. Apparently new foreign owners are not re-investing back into the pack however, and it is going to run down quickly consequently. Not enough washer and dryers in the laundry room. As someone below mentioned, lots of signs, but not enforced most of the time.
We called and made reservations. We were not able to make monthly arrangements even though we would be in the area 3 to 4 months. We agreed to take a spot on a weekly basis for 50 amp full hookup service. When we arrived, they put us in a 30 amp site saying they had no 50 amp available at the time. Apparently the person who was in the spot we were supposed to be in, had not left. We didn't complain. They let us use our adaptor so we were able to pull enough power to let us remain, with the knowledge that we would move to our spot later on in the first week. The next day we are told that not only do we have to move into our spot 1 week later, but also the weekend after that we will have to move to a non-full-hookup site for 8 days, then move back to our weekly site, and then move out at least twice more in the next couple of weeks. What? Why did they make the reservations and tell us they could accommodate us when it was obvious they could not? The monthly seasonal sites are very unkept and it is obvious that this "campground" is more than likely "home" for most of the parks occupants. Most of the rigs could not be considered road safe. Come to find out they only have 2 sites with 50 amp service that have full hook-ups. We would not recommend this campground.
The reason I'm giving this park a low rating is based primarily on price and noise. We called in advance and made reservations for 1 week, but asked at that time if we could stay longer. They said yes. Upon checking in, they charged us a wopping $300.00 plus tax for one week. We ask if we could go to a monthly rate and stay for one month. We were told no, yet we were put in the monthly area for that one week. The lady we spoke to was quite nasty about it. The park was basically empty, except for the long-term area. It was very difficult to get our 40' rig into their very narrow, short-turning-radius sites, and our quad slides were very, very close to hitting our neighbors slides. We even had to move our vehicles to let others out of their sites, although others reciprocated when we left by having to do same. And the noise from I-10 was some of the worst we have ever heard. No way would I pay 40.00+ dollars a night to stay here again.
The swimming pool is currently not operational. If you stay I would advise you to stay as far away from Hwy 21 as possible, as it is a very busy road and the traffic noise can be terrible. Very nice and helpful owners. Easy access on and off I-75.
This campground is directly accross the road from Barren River Lake Park south of Glasgow 12 miles on Hwy 31W. This is a bare bones campground, with no shower/bath house, but it is kept clean, neat and tidy. We were staying in the area more than 14 days so the state park would not work for us and found this to be adequate. The manager is actually a park ranger also, so he is very familiar and helpful with knowledge of the area. Caution however: There is no swimming pool, playground equipment, or facilities of any kind. This is however a good place to get away from the crowds if you want peace and privacy.
I am giving this a medium rating for a specific reason. But first a little about the park. I would say that this is a relatively nice park. Everything looked clean and tidy, abeit a bit crowded during our look over. You see, we were going to be in the area working for an extended amount of time and went to check out this park prior to our moving in. We made reservations with them, at that time, very helpful people. We gave them a deposit. Due to circumstances beyond our control however, we needed to cancel our reservations over 3 weeks in advance. Upon cancelling our reservations we were treated very badly. I can even understand keeping a part of our reservation deposit as a cancellation fee, but to keep ALL of it was certainly not good business practice. I'm not an unreasonable person, and will accept consequences if I mess up, but to keep as much money as they did for no services provided is quite unethical. I am not saying that one checking these ratings should not stay at their campground. I would however be very diligent about not sending any money their way till you step foot on the premises. If your plans change, you will get burned.
While not a resort, more a seasonal RV park we did meet some wonderful folks at Central Park. The seasonals were extremely friendly. Sites can be un-level, and nothing is fancy, but the park is clean and neat, even if some of the permanent sites are a little older. The only problem we had was with a couple who lived right in front of the dog walk, but didn't like pets. We, and all the other pet owners I saw, followed the pet rules (walking on a leash, picking up after them) but these folks were constantly complaining very loudly about all the pets coming and going on the dog walk.
This is a very neat and clean park but there are a few problems. They are very particular about not parking on the grass, which I understand, but they take it to extreme. We were told we couldn't park on the grass and use the concrete patio, we needed to park on the pad intstead. Trying to back our big rig 5th wheel in was a nightmare because the seasonal residents park on the streets and wouldn't move their cars in front of our spot on the narrow streets. Upon getting parked on the pad, everytime we stepped out of the RV we were stepping in big fire ant piles, since we had no concrete patio.
A nice park, and the owners are fantastic from check in to check out. Free wi-fi that's fast, fast, fast! Cable TV included. The reason I give this park a 7 instead of higher is for two reasons. 1. RV spaces are big enough to hold a Big Rig, but parking for towed/tow vehicles is tight. 2. A little high priced compared to alot of other campgrounds. Not much in the way of "resort" activities.
Nice park for stop-over on way to Florida, however make sure you park on the far side away from the truckstop. The trucks are now parking right up against the fence to the campground and the noise is terrible at night. Too bad, because they keep the park very neat and tidy and are working hard to make this nice.
The folks at Okeechobee KOA are a great group of people. We stayed for four months while working in the area during what was the worst hurricane season in recent memory. And not only did they keep the park in wonderful condition, which with the damage they sustained was amazing, they did it with a smile on their face. The wi-fi system worked wonderful before the hurricanes, but after Frances we never could get it to work. Granted, it's the most expensive campground in Okeechobee, but we would stay again if in the area.
