This large urban park is what it is - a short term parking spot close to the attractions. That said, it has trees and everything you need to be comfortable and the price is reasonable. Park roadways are paved but in rough shape with many potholes. All sites are gravel with a concrete patio with picnic table. There are no campfire rings. Water, cable, electricity, and sewer are appropriately located on the left side of the trailer. My site was not very level. Sites are close together. Office staff were busy but were friendly and helpful when I asked questions about visitor attractions. Verizon 4G cell coverage was excellent. WiFi at all times seemed even faster than my cable connection at home! Cable worked very well. There is a fair amount of highway noise. This was the Good Sam rate with tax. This was exactly what I wanted for our short visit.
This is a small, narrow, tree lined park that fronts on Mobile Bay. Park roads are gravel. All sites are gravel with a concrete patio with picnic table. There are no campfire rings. Water, cable, electricity and sewer are appropriately located on the left side of the trailer. I appreciated the careful attention of the park manager and the assistance I received in getting parked, including help with leveling. Sites are close together but adequate. Residents like to get together and are friendly. Verizon 4G cell coverage was good. WiFi quality was good, but slowed down significantly during peak times. We found plenty of broadcast channels with my antenna pointed towards Mobile. I use the Android TV Listing app and set it to zip code 36603. Because this campground is located on a peninsula there is minimal road noise. You can actually hear the sound of waves hitting the shore at night. Our rate was for a bayside site (not a bayfront site, though we could see the water from our kitchen table.) They only accept cash or checks. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a new RV-only campground laid out on the banks of Lake Catherine. The park is well designed with a large park office/store on a hill facing the pool and campground. The wide park roads are all paved making access with larger rigs easy. Our son and family stayed in one of many 1 bedroom & loft bedroom (very low ceilings which kids love) cottages for rent which are very nice. There are also yurts for rent but we did not tour them. The park is located a few miles from Hot Springs in a very private rural setting. This park is part of a network of RVC camping resorts with others in NC, TN, Fl and another being developed in CO. They are a rental rather than membership network. The spacious bathrooms are gorgeously tiled and kept very clean and, of course, are rarely used since RVs using the park are self contained. All sites are paved and pull-through with a leveled concrete pad for the unit and a concrete patio with picnic table, barbecue grill and campfire ring. Water, cable, electricity, and sewer are appropriately located on the left side of the trailer. Although the Wi-Fi was always strong the Internet connection was slow. The pool looks gorgeous but it was way too cold to use it (I think they open it April 1st). We enjoyed all of the employees we have met. They seem eager to help and pleased to work here. Sites are generously spaced but there are no bushes or anything between units to provide any privacy. Verizon 3G cell coverage was good. They must have a satellite TV system as the quality on some of the channels was poor. Although their park brochure listed the channels, I was unable to find an online guide to provide program information. (I really wish park owners would provide include information for finding out what is on TV.) This is normally a very quiet setting where about all you can hear are the crickets chirping. There are a number of park vehicles moving about during the day that could be more adequately muffled. Our rate is the weekly rate for a non-waterfront site. This is an excellent RV resort in a nice setting and with a great staff. It appears well run. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a gorgeous rural campground with views and amenities galore. We stayed just after a snowfall, so we were not able to do any exploration. We were escorted to our site which we appreciated. The layout is well done with views of a beautiful tree covered rolling countryside and lake. Our bathroom building was configured with individual rooms. Each was tiled and had a vanity and toilet and some had showers. Our site has a level paved area for our trailer. Water, cable, electricity, and sewer are on the left side of the trailer so that works well for us. Nice people in the office. We were really impressed with the store that seems unusually well stocked with items to entice grandparents into buying. Lots of unique stuff. They even make and deliver your ordered pizza to your site. Sites are generously spaced. Verizon 3G cell coverage was good. We were unable to use the WI-FI because we didn't have a password and the office was closed. This was satellite cable so the reception was not always terrific. Though we has a guide to the channels I was not able to find a guide to programming because the park documents did not list their provider. Many sites are drive through. Big rigs should have no problem with the drives or obstacles. It was generally quiet except for the occasional sound of a jet taking off or landing. This is an excellent RV resort in a nice setting and with a great staff. It appears well run. We did have an issue with off hours cleaning of our bathroom building which meant I couldn't get my shower, but I think this would not be a problem normally. We received the Good Sam Discount.
This small private park sits alongside a state highway in a small urban environment so has a fair amount of road noise. We did not use the bathrooms but they looked decent. Our site has a level paved area for our trailer. Water, cable, electricity and sewer are on the left side of the trailer so work well for us though the sewer is towards the front. Both WiFi (no password) and the cable TV worked very well. The guy in the office was very helpful. Sites are generously spaced. Verizon 3G cell coverage was good. We had something like 80 channels on Cox cable with excellent quality. Many sites are drive through. Big rigs should have no problem with the drives or obstacles. There is an incline when you enter the park, but if you come in the main entrance that should not be a problem. Southgate was just fine for an overnight. It was easy to get in and out. The services worked great and the price was reasonable. We paid $29 with the Good Sam discount.
This municipal park sits right on the bay in Grand Marais and includes a beautiful long pebble beach. There are 300 sites for all manner of camping including group camping. Interior main roads are paved and serve gravel spurs. The campground is crowded during the summer season and sites are often close together so though there are trees don't expect much privacy. That said the setting next to the lake with easy walking and biking access to Grand Marais complimented by the comfortable lake effect temperatures make this a great place to be.They have 4 bathroom buildings with bathrooms that are clean. Showers are free.Campsites vary tremendously in shade, shape and size and are often not all that level. Unless you plan way ahead (I was told reservations begin January 1st) you have to take what you get though there are many sites that are not reservable. Only a small percentage of sites offer sewer, free Wi-Fi and cable TV. There is an option to pay for Wi-Fi, but it is very expensive.The office folks were friendly and business like. Unfortunately, I soon discovered that the site I had reserved was double booked. I was offered my choice of 3 other sites and was given free wood for the inconvenience which I appreciated. Verizon 3G cell coverage was good. Most sites are back-in and access varies a lot. I was surprised how quiet it was where we were camped. Note that there is an indoor pool next to the park which is available to campers for a daily fee - there is a special $2.00 rate for seniors during the work week in the mornings. We are already planning to stay here again next year.
This long and narrow park follows the banks of the Root River. The campsites are laid out along the river and in the center between the driveways. Signage is nearly non-existant consisting of a little sign on the mailbox opposite the entrance of the park. Google navigation takes you to the center of town: right highway but wrong location. Just head north and follow Highway 250 over a narrow bridge and take the first driveway to the right. They have one good size office/bathroom building with bathrooms that are clean. Showers are $.50 for 5 minutes. The grassy campsites are laid out along the river and in the center between the park's gravel roads with the permanent sites beginning after the park office. I did not see sites with sewer for short term guests. Many sites (particularly along the river) offer shade but you may need quite a bit of hose and electric wire to make use of it. There is more than adequate room between units for slide outs and awnings. Units can be placed anywhere on the grass lots. The lots are generally near level but uneven so RV's need to be placed carefully to be level. Firewood is available. Tubes, kayaks and canoes can apparently be rented (though I am not sure how.) The proprietor lives on the second level of the restroom building. There is no sign for the office so I had to ask to find out where to check in. The proprietor didn't remember my calling, but told me to pick a site. He wrote nothing down so probably doesn't remember who I am. We have been here for two nights so I still don't know how I check out, etc. He was nice enough but I am baffled by how laid back this all is. The proprietor is the only employee I have seen, but everything seems to work and the place is in decent repair so I guess it is working. Verizon 3G cell coverage was good. Sites along the river are back in but it looks like the sites in the center could be pull through. The Highway 250 campground is located in a rural setting at a distance from highways (rural with minimal traffic), etc., so it is generally quiet. Seasonally, if you are near the river you will hear tubers going by on the river. I understand that the campground can be crowded on weekends so noise from other campers might be an issue but during our July midweek stay it has been wonderfully peaceful. This campground is located between the gorgeous paved Root River Bike Trail which provides easy access to the delightful town of Lanesboro and the Root River. In addition to the great restaurants, shops and biking and river outfitters, Lanesboro is home to the wonderful Commonweal Theatre which offers professional theatre for much of the year. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a very attractive large park with paved roads, green grass and many trees. It is well maintained with a nicely heated swimming pool (which was packed most of the time), and camp store with yummy ice cream cone service. They have a large hall that is used occasionally for dances, etc. They have two bathrooms that are clean but showers are the pay type. There are also some satellite type toilets around the park. Campsites are laid out along several looping roads and generally offer shade but no bushes, etc., to offer any privacy. There is adequate room between units for slide outs and awnings. Units can be placed anywhere on grass lot. Lots are generally fairly level. The office was regularly staffed. They were pretty much all business. Verizon 3G cell coverage was good. Site was back in but could have been pull through if campground wasn't full. Campground is located in a quiet rural setting away from highways, etc., so is generally quiet. Again sites are fairly close together so noise from next door can be an issue. Unfortunately, we were here when it was very hot, placing extra demands on the parks electrical system. We had two lengthy power outages one day. The 3 park power transformers were operating at max and one of them failed. I noted another had water running constantly on it to keep it cool. We would definitely stay here again but hopefully when it is cooler and the power demands are reduced.
Campground is located in a working class residential area which involves narrow streets and many turns. Layout is unusual but does not feel overly crowded. Our site had a level cement pad and adequate space between trailers. Free cable worked fine. Wi-fi was free, but I could not get it to work. The fellow in the office was friendly and helpful. We paid about $27 with Good Sam discount. There was some noise from passing trains, but we slept well. Satisfactory for an overnight stay.
Functional parking lot style campground laid out in rows. Row we were in had very narrow drive through sites which would not allow large slide outs, though other rows appeared to be wider. Sewer was so forward in the lot that I had to move to use it. Campground is located behind motel which afforded some sound protection from highway and train tracks. On site restaurant was friendly and provided great small town atmosphere and decent food. The sites are gravel and mine was off level enough to require shimming under one set of tires. Free cable worked fine. Wi-fi, also free, and worked well. The couple in the office were very friendly and helpful. We paid about $27 with Good Sam discount. This is not a very attractive place to stay. There was some noise from the highway and from passing trains but we slept well. Very satisfactory for an overnight stay.
Attractive adobe walled campground located in town. Layout is appealing with front area devoted to short term camping. Attractive office area stocked with area information. Some sites are drive through and others back in. Sites have concrete patios and picnic tables. Driveways are level with gravel surfaces. Free cable worked but occasionally the picture was marred by some sort of interference. Wi-Fi, also free, and worked well. The man in the office went out of his way to be helpful making a special information call to me, and carefully telling me about sites to see in Santa Fe. Very cordial and professional. We paid about $27 with Good Sam discount. We loved the adobe wall running around the campground. It made it feel very private. The campground was surprisingly quiet given that the campground is located on a very busy city street. It's location was a real plus for seeing the city sights. We would definitely stay here again.
Large parking lot style with rather narrow but long sites separated by cement pads and a picnic table. Small trees planted by sites but no real privacy. Several sewer connections made hook up easy Driveway is level with gravel surface. Free cable worked well. Wi-Fi only worked for the first evening even though signal appeared moderately strong. The office lady was very friendly and helpful. We paid about $27 with Good Sam discount. All sites were pull through with amble road space for access. The campground was very quiet with occasional train horns in the distance. We would definitely stay here again.
