I love this park. You can not beat the location or the price. Yes it is like a big sandy parking lot, no trees at all. So if you want to sit at your campsite and not venture out, this might not be the place for you. If you want to sit on the beach, then you can walk there. Head to Bethany or Rehoboth, both a short drive, walk along the inlet-pretty wild watching the water rage. Go across to the north side of the inlet, Hammerheads II has live music/happy hour, or catch the fishing boat that runs twice a day. The park offers kayak trips also. I look forward to coming here every year. My only complaint would be that they should put a little effort into the existing campsites, fill in the low spots, fix the roads, etc.
This is a beautiful campground. Our site had full hookups and was very large. Loved riding our bikes on the trails. About 15-20 minutes to Savannah. It had rained and we did notice several sites that were a wet and muddy mess. We didn't like the drive around and find a site approach. We didn't have a problem but I could see were it might be frustrating. 50 amp power was good.
This park totally fits the vibe that is Matlacha. Very eclectic. Walk to shops, bars and restaurants. There is a clubhouse with a kitchen, TV, etc. that appears to be in the finish stages. A community fire pit , tiki bar, lounge chairs, boat dock... We met several nice couples and had a great time. The spots are tight but everyone, including some really big rigs fit in. The Yacht Club in Coral Gables, about 20 minutes away provides a beach and a pool. We would return.
We loved our stay here, love the location, close to Key West. Site 25 was large and has a nice waterfront area with beautiful sunsets. The water connection is located front left side (hose crossed site). The electric is located front right, we needed an extension cord. 50 amp power was good. The bath house was extremely clean and nice. We put Plexiglas panels in our screen door to keep the no-seeums out. Bug spray is a must. It's hard to get reservations but don't give up, it was worth the being denied every morning at 7:59:59 for a month plus to spend a week in paradise!
This park is very close to the entrance of the Everglades. My reservation which I confirmed twice was lost on arrival. They did find it and we headed to site 184. The place seemed nice, well cared for park models, nice pool facility. Then we made a right and yikes! We were parked between two nasty trailers, falling apart, bags of garbage sat on their porch. I was nervous and scared. Loud Hispanic music blared late into the night on two nights, fireworks of some sort late one night frightened the heck out of us. Then we went to the pool, clean, nice laundry, lovely pool, nice people, we felt safe. Lots of planned activities, lots of snowbirds enjoying life. The park is not worth $60. a night and we would not return. If you do stay try to stay on the left side of the park.
The worse thing about the park was the entry road. It was brutal, potholes as big as our truck that never stopped. The rain made it nerve-racking since you couldn't tell how deep they were. The bath house while clean was old, the shower wasn't great, mold growing on painted block and the drain was a real ankle twister. However the natural beauty, foliage, wild turkeys, pigs, deer made up for it. The sites were large. This was a great base to explore St. Augustine and surrounding area. The 30 amp power was all right. We would return, felt it was an excellent value.
This was a nice park with good access to the Lancaster area. It is right on the turnpike, however the road noise was not that bad at all. They have great security. Reservations and check-in were easy. Our site had excellent power, cable was fuzzy, not very level. The site backed to trees and we had enough space to enjoy our fire. We would stay here again.
This is a great value, what you pay vs what you get. The owners were super nice, went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I believe all but 8 sites are for seasonal campers. The sites are back to back, grass sites between the bath house and pool. The 30 amp power was good, but did not need to run the a/c. The bath house wasn't great, but was clean. This was an amazingly friendly group of people, made us feel very welcome. I would stay here again, great waterfront location, great kayaking nearby!
This campground has the best location to get into town. Very close to the visitors center. It was packed for the 150th Anniversary, yet we were able to get back and forth with minimal traffic issues. If you love to hike you could very easily walk (or ride your bike) to many of the monuments. The campground has a small pool and a small catch and release pond. They also have the horse stables and the people we spoke with stated the horseback tours were very good. The campground was clean. When we go back to Gettysburg we will stay here again.
I loved this campground. I am giving it a 9, because they totally messed up and caused us a lot of extra work. When we arrived we were placed in the wrong site. After setting up we were told we would have to move. I was pretty upset, setting up a 5th is a lot of work. We moved, as it turned out our new spot was great and we enjoyed the remainder of the trip with beautiful weather, a great beach and a beautiful campground. The location was great and there was plenty of fun things to do along the Emerald Coast. I would stay here again, but I would make sure next time that if they put me in the wrong spot that they financially reimburse me for the inconvenience!
The park has the potential to be a 5 star. The setting is amazing, large trees canopy the campground with moss hanging down from them. Easy access to paved biking paths, we biked almost the entire island, a lovely bird garden. The bathhouses were okay, and they had a nice enough laundry room. Bring lots of bug spray, the mosquitos are bad and treat your dog for ticks and fleas before arriving. The biggest issue was the "junk yard" appearance from the seasonal/permanent residents. Junk under the campers, outdoor freezers, assorted tarps covering more junk. Just enough of them scattered around to take away from the natural beauty of the park.
The owners of Bass Lake are wonderful and take great pride in their campground. The campground is just off of I95 in Dillon and while close to highway, it did not appear to be noisy. It is wooded with a wonderful lake. They stored our RV for us for $20 per week, while we spent time at our condo in Myrtle Beach. It was filled with all the toys and it was kept safe. I prefer paying a few bucks for the night and having a safe place/peace of mind vs staying in a parking lot for free. I will use this campground again as it makes a great, safe place to stay the night.
Owner was extremely nice and works very hard around the campground. Our site, 37, was a nightmare. We arrived after a heavy rain fall, our site was at the base of a slope. Water ran down the slope from the field above the entire time we were there, it was a muddy mess. We needed 4" of blocks to level the picnic table at the most level location on the site, had to walk up hill to get to it. The site was isolated from the rest of the camp ground. When we stepped out we had a view of a rusted trailer to the right, a eye-sore part house part trailer to the left and a nice view of the dump station from the rear windows. The trailer/house was occupied by a family and every time we stepped outside they would ironically come out play guitar, fly kites, etc. very uncomfortable being parked right in front of someone's home. The park has a great location, very close to Mammoth Cave. I would stay here again, as long as it wasn't in the same site. Camped here in a 5th wheel.
I was very happy with this park. Good Sam discount. It had a great location, it was clean, well kept, good power. A small pool area, seemed nice. A shuttle bus from the campground will take you downtown, should you want to check out the bar scene one night. We did not have any issues with noise.
We needed a place to stay midway between our destination. This is a great spot to safely stop for the night. No frills, I do not think there is a bath house but the park was clean with manicured lawn, level sites, good power and while just off the road it was amazingly quiet. I would stay here again the next time we head west!
Many of the sites are right on the water and provide beautiful water views. (So close to the water in fact that you can see why flooding during storms is inevitable.) They have paved driveways with concrete pads. We have four slides, so we are wide, we used our pad as a sidewalk to the rear of the site, placed our table on the grass near the fire pit and took advantage of the water view. A walk way along the bulkhead gave access to various piers for you to fish or crab off of. The 50 amp service was excellent. The bath rooms were clean but outdated. The pool was nice with views of the river through glass panels. They rent kayaks, paddle boards and canoes. Front desk staff/service was excellent. We really liked this CG and plan to come back.
We stayed in the Sunset Acres Section; no trees, no shade, very hot. Our site was very spacious with stamped concrete, fire pit, light post with hanging basket, picnic table, and a glider. It was a good walk to the somewhat outdated bath house as they have not opened the facility in this section yet. The mostly dirt, gravel road created a cloud of dust every time a vehicle drove by. This section still has work going on, and the work vehicles did not adhere to the 5 MPH speed limit, which created even more dust. We had to wet the road down in the evenings in order to stay outside. Some road noise mostly during the day; evenings were quite. The indoor pool would be really nice in the winter, but when it is 90 degrees outside the pool was not a good option. There was no outdoor pool. The wi-fi was extremely poor, the cable was poor, the 50 amp service was excellent; it was in the 90's and we had no issues. Our check in was smooth, but service was average over all; it depended on who was at the front desk. The park was located very well for attractions, State Parks, Corning, Finger Lakes wine, etc. We would stay here again, but probably in a different section.
This was a very nice State Park, right on the inlet. The beaches were beautiful, we could walk to one, and our campground pass allowed access to the other beaches. The marina across the bridge was nice. Hook um and Cook um provides charters, bait, tackle and fresh caught seafood. Very stable power even though the park was full. Very friendly staff, easy check in and provided us with information on the area.
This was a fun CG. Sites were nice, although no shade. The waterfront/bay was nice. Several piers that you could crab or fish from. Power was good even though CG was packed, never an issue. We would go back. Lot's to do at the CG and surrounding areas.
This was mostly a seasonal CG, that was very nice. Staff was nice. Most sites had beautiful landscaping. Did not like the bath, very small showers. The electric to our site was horrible, the power would not stay in the safe range.
Arrived late afternoon to this very nice campground. This is a beautiful property, the staff was also nice. You could tell this would be a very fun campground during "peak" season, we must of had bad timing. We had to pay peak rates yet hardly any of the amenities were open. (Apparently they open on 6/17/11 when school is out). To make matters worse, they had loud/heavy equipment doing construction during our stay. Feel like we overpaid for what we got.
I was very happy with this park. When we arrived at our site, we were confused as to where we should park, the staff came to the site immediately (turns out someone was in our site). We were offered to have them move or to use the site next to ours, which was just as good if not better. There are several seasonal set ups but plenty of very good, non seasonal sites. We were very happy with this CG and plan to return with our family next year. They had a boat launch area with rental jet skis and pontoon boats nearby. The store was well stocked, they had evening security and enforced the quiet time (we were with the neighbors who took our site when they were told by park staff to turn down the music). The staff was great and we had a great time.
Easy check in, very friendly staff, the wooded section of this CG is beautiful. Bathhouse was clean but slightly dated. We had a pull through "sundeck" spot, plenty of space and although it was over 100 degrees, our electric service remained steady. I would recommend this CG.
We loved this park. The ferry over ($170. R/T for two people, a truck and a 34' 5th wheel) adds to the cost of the trip. There is a fresh water fill on the way in, and a dump station: very clean. There was a lot of space, it was clean and well maintained. We had a great view of Lake Erie from our camp site. The park also has a boat ramp and jetty for fishing. You could tell it probably gets muddy when it rains. We biked and hiked and had a great time on Kelly's Island. Would return.
The Good: It was located 20 minutes outside of Cleveland, and very close to a National Park. They had a pond with a slide and "toys" in it and the kids really seemed to enjoy themselves. Another pond was catch and release. I would have given it a 9 if it weren't for the Bad. The grass needed mowing at our site, it had patches that had gone to seed. After a few motorhomes hooked up, the power supply to our unit was way under the "green zone" on our meter and we did not feel safe running the AC. We informed a couple of park employees who were working on an electric box at the entrance of the park and informed them of our situation. They claimed there were no power problems and said they would stop by and look at it, they did nothing. We would not feel safe camping here in the summer with our dog due to the power issue. We left the following morning.
Overall the park seemed nice. The staff was friendly. However my rating is based on our stay at camp site #83. It was supposed to be a 50 amp prime site, the most sought after. The camp ground was very empty (we stayed after Labor Day) so we could have been placed in any number of sites. We were assigned a site that had two fire rings one was filled with trash when we arrived, the next day someone took the ring leaving the pile of trash. We asked to have someone clean it, no one bothered. To make matters worse our site had a very active yellow jacket bees nest under the slab where our hook up's were located. The dirt pad that we parked on had sunk to the point that our bottom step was two inches from the ground a real ankle bender. I could go on but I won't.
We really enjoyed our stay at this adults only campground. They do a very good job of keeping everything clean and maintained. The grounds were very nice. We would highly recommend this campground to anyone looking for peace and quite.
Clean and well maintained. Lower sites are muddy when it rains, our site drained fast, but it was a mud mess to get backed in. Located close enough to I-81 that you can hear it in the distance. The grounds were very nice and if it weren't for the main road it would have been peaceful. US-11 is really loud. We did not get one (stayed three) nights sound sleep due to the unbelievably ridiculous drivers. They would come and go from the road across the street, all night. Peeling wheels, skidding, racing engines, motorcycles, trucks and cars with really loud mufflers. Most sites are designed for people to come and go, for a one night stay it would have been fine. Priced fairly. If it weren't for the noise I would have given it an eight.
We really enjoyed this campground even though we were there before peak season. You can see the Ocean City boardwalk rides from the fishing pier. The campsites aren't to close together, mostly wooded. Beautiful views of the bay. Very good location. Even our nineteen year old daughter enjoyed it. We hope to go back soon.
We stayed in the Tulip Loop with full hook ups. The electric is a total of 50 amps, but no place to plug in a 50 amp cord; we had to convert to 30 amps. The sites are beautiful, lots of space, nice picnic table and campfire ring with grate. We spotted a couple of Bald Eagles along the Periwinkle Point Trail and were entertained by a couple of foxes outside of our rear living window one morning. May is off season so nothing was open during the week, but we still found it to be a wonderful place and would go back.
This was the first time we have ever RV'd or camped. The folks at KOA were very helpful, even strolled by later to make sure we were okay. The bathrooms were clean, the camp store had everything you could need. We did have issues leveling our unit because one side of our "level" site was about one foot lower then the other (a rut had formed on the downhill side of the pull-through). The waste hookup was uphill on our site, you needed a support for the waste hose in order to use it properly, so we used the restrooms on this trip. We would go back, had a great time.
