This is a great, well taken care of, campground. We stayed here last February for a couple of days and were so impressed, we decided to stay two weeks this time. They do a great job keeping up with the ongoing maintenance for a park this size. It is located off HGWY 98, and is close, but not too close to PCB happenings. We got the $340.00 weekly rate (Peak Season) which we felt was reasonable considering the location. We definitely stay here again. If you think I errantly give good reviews, then check my other ones.
We stayed here one night at $15.95 Passport Discounted Rate. We have a 34 foot fifth-wheel with two slides. There were plenty of open sites with no interferences. But we were escorted to a site that was very small and had trees so close on both sides, that in order to put out the slides I had to park in the middle of the site, which put the front door 4 or 5 feet from the other trees, which means no awning out. I'm wondering if because we are getting a discount, they are sticking us in one of the worst sites in the campground. And with the back of the trailer even with the paved road, I can get the truck parked in front if I lower the tailgate and back under the hitch so the truck is not out in the road. I'm just asking a question, and don't know if this is a fact or not.
Rate $30.00. Passport America $15.00, CASH OR CHECK ONLY. Level grassy pull-through sites, within 100 yards of prison. Access is through the middle of a trailer park, and break out into a open field where the sites are. Stayed here two nights to visit with local friends.
Stayed here for 4 months in 2009. Numerous cats still running rampant. Roots sticking up in many sites, making them unusable. No visual improvements, broken sewer lines, trashy, and no monthly rates after March 2012. Would I stay here again? Not even for $20.00
It was a Saturday morning when we called the park for reservations. We got an answering machine that said the office was open only on Mon thru Fri but you can make reservations at their home office number. I made reservations for the night and proceeded three hours to the cg. My name was not on any of the reservation packets, but they had some made up for any latecomers, so I took one of those. The main office said I would get my discount when I arrived, but since they don't work on Saturday or Sunday, I probably will be charged full price. The Wi-Fi will cost you $4.95 for 4 hrs, but McDonald's is close by so it's OK. They tell you if you don't like getting stung by the numerous fire ants, then you can go to the store and buy some fire ant killer. I am a Good Sam member and passport America, and I wouldn't recommend this park to anyone.
$15.00 is a Passport America Rate. Right off Highway 1 near Lexington, S.C. After traveling from Spartanburg, through the panhandle and west coast of Fla. across the state and up the East Coast and have never heard of being charged for wi-fi access. Normal daily rates for 30 amp full hookup is $30.00. And I would think for that you could get cable for 11 sites or at least free wi-fi. But I guess that's the best they can do for having just 11 sites in their back yard.
This park is kept up pretty well. It has many permanent domiciles that are, for the most part, kept up. It advertises wi-fi, but only in the clubhouse, and not throughout the park. With full hook-up you will only get local channels on your over-the-air antenna, as they do not have cable hookups at the sites. The manager said it is because most folks have satellite dishes. This is a 55+ park which made it nice and quiet, although I did see a few small kids playing, but they might have been visiting. Would I stay here again? Probably not.
Owner is a super nice owner and operator that is real helpful in steering you towards good food, things to do, and a great winery and vineyard. I gave them a nine because of my sewer being uphill, making it difficult to clean out. All in all, I think it is a great place to stay.
Any trailer larger than a 32 will have problems getting on your site. They have put new Park Models in the place that you could maneuver your tow vehicle to access your site, with the only place to park their cars is next to the road, and there are boat trailers on the end of the loop making it difficult to circle the sites. All in all, this is the first RV Park since I have been RVing that I would not return to. The folks that run this park tried to find a place I would fit in and decided that I could use two sites, and were very nice. But, if I hadn't already paid, I would have left already. So all in all, I blame myself for believing what I read in Passport America about 40'. And also I should have checked the site before I paid. The managers are nice and try their best to help. But they know that it is a problem
This is a very nice campground, that is well kept and maintained. The fishing is great, and the Managers are very nice. It was too cold to get in the pool, but it was very clean. We have a great view of the river and the boat traffic. The access roads are beautiful brick pavers. And if you're in the area, please drive the 23 miles to Apalachicola, and eat the best fried oysters I've ever put in my mouth, at Papa Joe's Oyster Bar and Grill next to Scipio Creek Marina on Market Street. No wonder this is a favorite of locals.
Located on Hwy 231 78 miles from Panama City. Very nice campground, has many permanents, but the front of it on either side of the office is set up for folks just staying a day or two. Pull throughs, and when you pull out you can pull out onto 231 unobstructed. The reason the park wasn't given a 10 rating is there was no Wi-Fi as advertised. As I understand it, they have been unable to find a reputable Wi-Fi installer. So they might have it fixed by now.
CCUSA discount made it $13.00 for one night. Closing for the winter at the end of October. Low rating due to the muddy water at the faucet. I let it run for a couple of minutes, and it was still muddy. So we used our on-board water while we were here. Getting here and also leaving, found the roads to be very curvy and some steep grades 9%+ with 20 MPH stretches. Big Rigs need to find another campground if possible. But all-in-all, it was nice and quiet, after the stressful narrow two-lane road to get here.
Very nice park, with a nice pier to walk out and fish or just sit and enjoy the sunset. This is a Passport America park, and for the 50% discount, they only accept cash payment. This is close to Morehead City, Atlantic Beach and Beaufort, which are quaint waterfront towns that are fun to sight see and eat some great seafood. There is a super Wal-Mart within a couple of miles of this park. We enjoyed our stay here, and the staff was great.
Only paid $20.00 CampClub USA Member. Our fiver was backed up to within 6 feet of the lake, which made the view absolutely beautiful. Far enough away from the Outer Banks (10 minutes), but close enough to good restaurants and shopping. Staff was very nice and helpful. Nice catwalk across the salt marsh to catch a few crabs, if you like. We enjoyed this park very much.
My wife and I stayed here in 2009, but I didn't write a review then as the present owners had just taken over, and I didn't feel it would be fair to give a bad review at that time. The derelict trailers have since been removed, and the state of disrepair has been taken care of. The reason I gave them a 9 is for the few potholes in the pavement. Overall, I think they have done a really great job of making this a great park, and we will be back next year. Also the pond and new deck are real nice, and the water is now "softened."
The campground is not right on the beach, but the beach is within walking distance.(less than 1/2 mile) Also, there is plenty of free parking at the beach, a sandwich/souvenir shop, which has free Wi-Fi 24/7, and picnic tables in a covered breezeway. There are sailboat, kayak, etc. rentals on the property. Everyone was very cordial, and helpful. A 15 minute drive will take you to downtown St. Augustine,or driving South about 20 minutes will take you to Marineland. It was an enjoyable area and campground, and we will be back.
We stayed on Site 25, the site was below the sewer hookup, and 3 inches out of level. Some of these sites need to be back filled bad. But this is a beautiful area, moss covered oak trees, the historic district from the 1920s, great bike paths, fishing pier, and wide beaches. Ladies at check-in were wonderful. Right now is not a good time to go, as per the construction disarray and numerous detours, especially if you are pulling a long trailer, or motorhome with an vehicle behind it. (The left turn after paying the $5.00 parking fee, is almost a 180 degree turn to start the detour.) There is a $5.00 per day parking fee, if you need to leave the island for groceries, or anything else. As long as you pay your parking fee for that day, you may travel back and forth to the mainland as many times as you need to, as long as it is before midnight on the same day.
