This park is NOT hard to find if you follow the directions and look for the brown sign. These are some of the MOST spacious sites we have ever seen and very well spaced from the next site. The lake access was wonderful.Sites 12-24 are easier access to the water. As kayakers this is important to us. They even let you take fallen branches, etc for firewood...what a great perk! The bathroom could have had more than one shower, but other that that we loved it and would go back in a heartbeat!
This is only the 2nd TRUE RV resort we have visited. They also offered a FMCA discount. This park is so impressive from the moment you go into the office to register. The staff could not be any friendlier to their guests. After being escorted to our creek side site the staff stayed to make sure everything was hooked up correctly and we understood. The club house is gorgeous with a state of the art fitness center and movie theater. There are activities planned; however, we were there only a short time and did not participate, but they looked very fun. The 3 pools with spas are fantastic, not to mention the tennis courts! We even roller-bladed in the resort. It was an easy launch with our kayaks up Henderson Creek. The everglades park is very close as is Marco Island. We will be back, and I suggest if you are looking for an incredible experience you book ASAP!
Very easy from I-95. This is a man made lake and not large enough to do much more than view. The park was not very busy when we arrived and for some reason they had us for a different night but placed us without any problems. A great value to get full hookups plus Wi-Fi and cable for $20. A great stopover for the snowbirds!
The weather was terrible when we arrived. There were not a ton of people so we were able to have some privacy. If it were crowded however, it would have been very tight. They offer a great huge pool and hot tubs which was something we have never seen before. They do have a waterfall and a river to view.
Let me first say, the website makes this park look amazing. It was right in the middle of downtown Fries. I understand there is a great bike trail close which we did not use. It is not an easy place and is not on a direct route. The owner is very nice and gave us muffins from his wife. The last site is probably the nicest. The WiFi was sketchy and we did not have a cable hookup. We will not return.
The folks who run this small park are very nice. Location, location. The sites are tight, getting into the streets are tight and I question why this park is in such demand. Yes, it is right across from an Amish farm (couldn't help but smell the manure) and yes you can walk into Intercourse. Beyond the location there is not much to say in a positive way. We would not return.
When we got there, they had changed our site. Looks like they have many permanent people there. The WiFi was not very good. It really is not in Rhinebeck but on the outskirts. For one night it was ok as there are not many parks in the area. We would not return.
This park is just below an actual busy city street, but we were lucky enough to have a site facing the stream. However, if the roller coaster next to us was running it would have been a different story. The sites seems well spaced except to the sites which are T shape with one drive.
We were really lucky to get site A20 which is a great lakeside site. Very peaceful and serene at least where we were. I am not sure what it would be like to be there on a weekend as it might be too busy. We are kayakers and this was a very nice lake. My husband used the shower and as many have said it needs updating. We will return.
I am not sure why this park gets rated so highly. We assumed it is mostly used by locals in the area. If you want to be close to your neighbor than this is your type of camping. This was our first experience in TN and from the woman on the phone when I called for info, to the young man who took our money who was clueless about the sites, it was not a great experience. Would bypass this park in my opinion. However it looks like this is a very family oriented park and very well used.
This is an incredible park. I would have loved to stayed longer. We had site 19 in loop A which put us right in front of the lake and we were able to put our kayaks right in. Quiet, beautiful and well spaced sites with full hookups. Much more to do there than just an overnight. I am sure we will return.
The front desk staff was very helpful. We were in a deluxe site and had plenty of room. We faced some trees but otherwise the park is fairly open. The site was gravel and level. Our Verizon worked perfectly. The cable was just OK. The Wi-Fi was good. There was a slight amount of road noise but not too bad. The park was not too busy which made it nice for us, not sure when they are full how it would be. We saw elk across the street and wandered into historic Williams. We stayed here for the proximity to the Grand Canyon. It was about an hour but the parks closer were not as nice.
We spent the extra to have the lake view and it was beautiful. Boulder Beach with no hook ups is next door. The lake view was amazing! The office staff was so pleasant. Yes, there are some mobile homes here, but it was not anything that changed the view. We would return if in the Vegas area again.
The price is with the Good Sam discount. The WiFi they offer is very slow and barely works. The sites are fairly well spaced however they are very dusty and the wind is endless. We had site 61 and were not happy looking at the dumpster. The mountain views are incredible!
Lets start with the positive. This is a very pretty park in rolling hills and wine country. They actually allow you to have beer and wine on site. The sites have full hookups and are actually quite spacious. There is absolutely no cell service until you are out of the park. We were visiting our niece in Walnut Creek (40 minutes in distance). We were appalled when we were told if you are not back by 10PM the gates are locked and there is NO way back in if you are late. If you park in overflow then you are ticketed and towed. We thought the $45 was very high for a regional park and the curfew was unacceptable. If you are planning to stay and not leave the park, you will not have this issue. The lake is lovely.
Location, location location. This park has 3 campgrounds, the lower is more crowded. The Redtail loop and other one has much better views. We did not have good weather but were able to see Flagstaff, Sedona, Jerome and Prescott prior to the snow fall. As kayakers, the lagoons are too small and the river top rocky. Would possibly use this park again for its location.
The attraction to this park is the closeness to Santa Monica. It is clean and has many amenities. There is a side for monthly RV'ers and we were able to pick our site, so we would not be on top of our neighbors. There is a view of the mountains but there is also some road noise. This is only a quick stop over for us. Would not want to stay for an extended period as we prefer a more natural setting.
We loved this park. The sites near the lake were closer but not too bad. #4 and #5 have views of the beach area. We took site #53 which was a bit more secluded and had an enormous flowering tree that the hummingbirds loved. Gambel quails, golden eagle and many bird varieties. As we are kayakers, we went to Bill Williams Wildlife refuge. It was outstanding. The rangers could not be more helpful and really seem to like their jobs. Checked out Lake Havasu City area and the London Bridge. Would visit here again in a heartbeat!
This is a beautiful park. There is a road but very little road noise. You are surrounded by huge pine trees everywhere. I do not think there is a bad spot in the park. They have a wonderful asphalt trail that winds around Big Bear Lake. There was snow in the mountains and one ski area still open. Sleepy town which feeds off the snow in the winter and the lake in the summer.
Can't say enough good things about this park. We had site 51, a pull through and the view of the lake was incredible! The sites are all so nicely spaced and it is a great location for the area. Make sure you go to Tent Rocks Monument and take the cliff hike through the canyon. We also went to Bandslier Monument which was lots of fun and take the trail to the waterfall. This was a great location for exploring everything, yet very naturally beautiful. Would go back in a heartbeat!
The park was clean. The staff was very nice. Cable and wifi...however this is a parking lot very close to the expressway. If you want a more natural setting this is not for you. The websites always make these look better than they actually are. We would not stay here again even though it was just an overnight.
It is a very nice park with lots of trails to wander about. It is easy to spend more than an overnight. The camp staff very nice. It was not very busy when we were there. It is much nicer than a private rv park if you prefer trees vs parking lot.
We loved this park. We were fortunate enough to have a great waterfront, #14. It is very well spaced. Lovely beach and great kayaking. We are hoping to go here again, very soon! The only thing that would add to this park as everyone has said would be septic hookup: but the dump station is very easy to get to. We Loved it!
I think this park gets rated so highly due to the location. It is an older park and not as nice as Curry State Park or Long Key. The sites are fine, look out for no see ums. There are 2 beaches but the shore line is not huge if you like walking on the beaches. Close 25 minutes to Key West. We like to kayak but found it quite windy when we were here.
This is a very nice park and with the holiday lights it should be great! A super location for everywhere in Charleston. We had site 53 and it was spacious and mostly private. When we come back we will stay here again.
We are kayakers and found this enormous 26,650 acre lake to be a jewel! There were some power boats but still plenty of room for everybody. There are so many fingers and bays to explore. The campground has 2 loops and they are all very nice. We stayed on site #30 and it was somewhat private and easy access to the water. They have a beach area for swimming, tennis and basketball courts and gorgeous picnic areas. We liked it so much we booked for time in August. This is a park that will not disappoint.
The park is nice with full hookups and the price is very fair. It is the closest to Jekyll Island and the spacing is better here than at the campground at Jekyll island. The lake is not very large but does add some nice scenery. The staff is very nice. There is a slight amount of road noise from 95 but I imagine when all of the trees are leafed out it would block some of that sound.
The campground is very open with not a lot of trees. There is a very small lake, but too small for kayaking which we had hoped to do. The ranger was nice enough to tell us where there was a larger lake. As others have stated there is not very much to do there. We ended up the 2nd day going into Gainsville for a movie. It seemed as though there were many family/friends who camped there together.
We called at the very last moment and they were very nice to get us in. We also requested a more wooded and private site and they gave us # 702. It was not a bad site. This RV park has motorhomes and park models. We usually prefer to stay at state parks but for a few days this was just fine. Location location made this even better. They did allow us to use our camp USA discount.
We camped here during the holiday week. The sites are very open except for a small tent area which seemed to have more privacy. The water and electric were set very strangely and not user friendly. The fire ring was also in a very strange place. Kayaking here through the mangroves was fun and we saw an alligator in the water. The restrooms were clean and the showers stayed hot. Not a bad location to go into the everglades, Marco Island or Fort Myers. There is a very cool preserve if you turn right out of the park and take a very short drive. We walked there a few times and saw roseate spoonbills, woodstorks and other herons, egrets, etc.
This is a very busy park. The springs and river are very nice. However make sure to go on the river when the kids are in school as they rent canoes to anyone and they do not give them instructions which means as a kayak-er you play dodge the canoes. The rangers make you very aware the bears are active, we saw none. We did see an alligator in the river and some birds and many turtles. The higher # sites 31-60 seem to be larger and have more trees. There are many hiking trails and such, there are many things to do in this park. The rest rooms were clean and there was plenty of hot water in the showers.
This park is very convenient to I-75 and is only about 2 miles from the x-way. We arrived at night and found our way to the campground which is across the street from the park registration. The sites are flat and level. Once we arrived the park host required that we give an additional $5 for our car we were towing which we did not like. He said all states do this and since we know differently we told him this was not the case. The falls are visible from the road. There are trails but we did not go on them.
Seems to be a newer park. The sites are deep and they offer full hookups. The bathroom was spotless and bright with big hot showers. We camped in site # 10 and it offered privacy. Good location to get to Crystal River to see Manatees and also Ocala. Great for family camping. Staff was very helpful. Close access to Rainbow River.
There is so much to do at this park! The back sites are the most private and have woods in the back; the others towards the front are much closer. We had site 121, and it was very private and very close to the restrooms. We kayaked at the marsh area. We ask ranger how to get there as it is very easy. The highlight was Brookgreen gardens less than 1 mile from the park. They have 9000 acres of garden, sculptures and very cool zoo. The ticket is good for 6 days as you could never see it all in one day. We loved this area so much we have already scheduled a trip in April.
The campground is somewhat tight depending on the site. They classify the sites closest to the ocean as "ocean", however they may not have a view. The best sites we found if you want an ocean view and have a motorhome are 64, 62, 88, and 53. The sites in the back seemed to be larger and more private if you do not care about the ocean view. The actual park is beautiful and the staff very nice and helpful. We kayaked at the lagoon and the marsh area. Make sure you bring bug spray as there are no see-ums. We had a great trip and will be going back in Dec and April.
Park was crowded on the weekend, but it really thinned out by Sunday. This lake is enormous with many power boats. Our focus was kayaking and as long as you stayed at the shore, you were ok. The sites were spacious and many were on the lake. We stayed in #16 which had easy access for our kayaks. Other than the lake, there are not alot of trails for hiking: but it's enjoyable. It would be nice if they upgraded the shower curtains as they do not completely cover.
We camped on site # 74 which backed up to the marsh area. It was a large and mostly private site. The beach has great shelling and we kayaking in the creek: but be aware and careful of the tide schedule. It was quite relaxing, not commercial at all! I would recommend this campground highly.
Staff was very helpful and we were able to look at several sights prior to setting up. We chose this park due to the ability to kayak almost right out from the site. The river was absolutely wonderful! Slow moving, wooded on both sides and the fish were jumping. The town of Washington was close and had a very pleasant waterfront area.
Not only are the sites very wooded and well spaced, they are also mostly waterfront. The lake is enormous and the water is beautiful with the mountains in the background. We enjoyed it so much, we have already booked for next summer. This campground is a jewel!
