Springfield Campground COE, Anderson, South Carolina

Date of Stay: May, 2019 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

This is the 3rd stay at this park, twice in the same site. The sites are generally spacious and relatively level. Like most southern COE parks, there is electric and water available at the site, but no sewer. Patios are crushed aggregate, which is somewhat thin and washed out at this point. Since our stay here a year ago, most of the pine trees in the park have been cut down. The camp host told us the trees were removed because of disease, and they were afraid of them falling on campers. Unfortunately, the seclusion between campsites is now gone, and the landscape is not very attractive with a view of stumps and tractor ruts. We were also told that the cleared areas will eventually be replanted with hardwood trees, but it will take several years for them to mature. Even with the deforestation, this is still a nice park with direct access to the lake from most sites. There is 20/30/50 amp at each site, and the water pressure is good. The city of Anderson is about a 10 mile drive, with plenty of shopping and dining opportunities. All roads to the campground are paved and in good shape. Interior roads are asphalt and in mostly good shape, and navigation is good, with no low hanging branches or other obstacles. We camped at Springfield Campground COE in a Motorhome.

Carroll's Sausage and Country Store RV Park, Ashburn, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2019 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

There are 20 spots in this park with palm trees and picnic tables scattered throughout. A sign at the entrance instructs guests to stop and pay in the store before entering the camping area and selecting a site. Sites are first come first served. Plenty of sky for your rooftop dish to get all satellites. Some sites are not quite level. When we arrived, there was only one other RV in the park, so our site selection was wide open. The sites are about average widths, but long enough for a 40' rig with a couple of vehicles. We first selected site 12, but found that we would not be able to get level without using blocks, so we moved to site 20. After we got set up, there was a low voltage problem with the 50 amp service on the pedestal, so we moved to site 3. (Informed management of the electrical problem, and they said it was probably due to some issues from a storm the previous night and sent someone to check it out). Site 3 was nice and level, and had no power issues. After setting up for the 2nd time, we went back into the store to peruse their humongous butcher counter. We used the $10 store credit voucher they gave us when we checked in to apply toward the sack full of meat we purchased. They had one of the largest variety of fresh sausages I've seen. We camped at Carroll's Sausage and Country Store RV Park in a Motorhome.

Old Post Road COE, Russellville, Arkansas

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $10.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed at many COE parks around the country, and this park is one of the best. We were in site 16. The concrete pad was wide, long and level. The space between sites is very large. We had a covered picnic table. There were no issues with the 50 amp electric, or water connection. Water pressure was 60#. There were plenty of trees for shade, but they did block our rooftop dish. However, we had plenty of yard area to find a spot for our portable dish that did have a view to all the satellites. Even though this park is on the banks of the Arkansas river, we did not have a problem with mosquitos. The cell signal for AT&T was strong, as was the Verizon signal for our mifi. We were only here overnight, but wish we had booked it for a longer stay. We paid $10 with our senior access pass discount. We will return to this park the next time we are in the area. We camped at Old Post Road COE in a Motorhome.

John Martin Reservoir State Park, Hasty, Colorado

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

We camped in the Lake Hasty campground. This is a pretty good state park campground, with huge sites. You won't have to worry about hearing your neighbors snore. In the loop where we stayed, you could mark off a football field in the open space in the center of the loop behind the campsites. We had plenty of room for our 41' motorhome in our back in site, with room to park our towed car (and another, if we had visitors) in front. The pad and patio is packed small gravel, and almost as hard as concrete. The site was quite level, and the grassy area around our campsite seems like we were on about a 1/4 acre lot between our next door neighbors on each side. There is no water hookup at the sites, but there are a few community spigots scattered on each loop. There is one dump station that serves the whole park, but it does have 4 lanes. We did have an issue with ants. We had an active bed in the middle of the patio when we arrived. We used some creature deterrent, and they weren't much of a problem the rest of our stay. We had weak signal for our Verizon MiFi, and no signal for our AT&T network phones. At times, we could walk a little way from our site to get a phone signal. The park is below the dam, which dampens the signals from the carriers. We had no problem with satellite dish reception for the TV, but there are zero over the air TV channels available. There is a small convenience store with a deli 2 miles away from the park, but if you need restaurants, groceries or WalMart items, the nearest town is Lamar, which is about 20 miles away. It's a town of about 36,000, so it has your basic needs. There is no one at the check in station. If you don't have a reservation, there is a self service slot to register and pay. Rangers patrol regularly, and they check your vehicle passes. You also need a state park pass in addition to the camping fee. We have an annual pass, but had to go to the visitor center to get a pass for our towed car. We camped at John Martin Reservoir State Park in a Motorhome.

Lamar is 20 miles away to the east for shopping and dining. There is a truck stop/travel center on the west side of Lamar. To the west 30 miles away is La Junta, about the same size as Lamar, with similar shopping and dining opportunities. It does have a very good Chinese restaurant, the Bamboo Panda, not a buffet.

Frank Jackson State Park, Opp, Alabama

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very nice park. We are in space 29, which is a very wide and long gravel pad. We are in a 41' motorhome with slides on both sides, and we have plenty of room to accommodate our exercise pens that we use for our pups. The park has WiFi, but it is slow, and the signal is weak. We have a strong WiFi booster, but even with a good signal, pages load slowly, but they do load. The park also has excellent cable, with over 100 channels, which is something you don't usually see in a state park. The town of Opp is rather small, and has a few fast food restaurants, and only one grocery store.

We are staying here only one night this trip in route to our next destination. We will most definitely stay here again, and will likely spend more time here the next time we come through. We camped at Frank Jackson State Park in a Motorhome.

Wind Creek State Park, Alexander City, Alabama

Date of Stay: November, 2015 - $63.00
Overall Rating:

We called a couple of days ahead for a one night reservation with a 50 amp full hookup site at this state park for an early November weekend. The lady on the phone told us we wouldn't need reservations, as they had plenty of space, and did not reserve specific spaces. We arrived shortly after noon on Friday, and found that what we had been told was true. Of the 39 spaces with 50 amp service, only 4 were occupied when we arrived. We were able to select our site from those that were open. We had not been told what the rate was, and were shocked at the $63 price for one night (and this was after taxes, and with the senior discount).

We selected site 176, which was a very long and wide concrete pad with a nice lake view. The hookups were at the back of the pad, and luckily our electric cable was just long enough to reach, without having to break out the extension. A 25' water hose was also just long enough. The sewer connection was also at the back of the pad, and if we had needed to use it, we would have had to connect an extension to reach it.

This section of the campground is new, and there was a notice at the main office that the campground WiFi was unavailable because of the renovations. We have a strong WiFi booster, and found a campground WiFi signal, but even with our booster, it was not strong enough to do simple web searches and email. Cable TV was provided, however there were only a few channels available, and they were quite grainy. It has been raining off and on during our stay, and the local network channels are unavailable more often than not.

Although the parking space is nice and well maintained, the price is much too high for what is available. We will not be coming back for a return visit. We camped at Wind Creek State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a state park on a lake. Fishing and boating are the primary activities here. Bring a book for other times, as cable and WiFi are not dependable.
