Azalea Acres RV Park, Robertsdale, Alabama

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $33.00
Overall Rating:

This site truly lives up to the high rated reviews that it has received. Value: We paid $33 /night in September: on our way back from evacuating Hurricane Irma in Florida. Every other full-hookup with working (or not working) WiFi on our route charges $40+ The camp sites are mostly leveled grass sites. They are so large, they could have easily fit four (4) campers in them. They have picnic tables, but no fire rings. The ground is perfectly well maintained, although the young trees are not providing any shade yet. Services -

They ask that you call the office as you exit the interstate; someone then waits for you at the gate in a golf cart to escort you to your pull-through site before you register. Everyone is very friendly. Cleanliness - Cleanliness is where this campground really excels. The modern vacuum-flush toilet, the beautiful floor tiles, even the advanced shower temperature control handles are just immaculate. The open recreation pavilion is well insulated and sports a curiously efficient ceiling fan that allows me to comfortably sit there in September 90° to type this review. I definitely would stop at this site again, first. We camped at Azalea Acres RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sunset Isle RV Park / Motel, Cedar Key, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This hidden jewel on the "forgotten coast" of Florida is the most charming campground that we've been to so far. It's very small but, as its name indicates, it has the most spectacular sunset you can imagine. Our site backs up directly on the water to give us a serene view of the marsh. The island is basically a clam farm where fishermen lease acres of ocean floor at the Suwannee river's estuary to plant clam larvae. As a result, Tony's restaurant won the chowder competition up North 3 times in a row. You must try it even if you can't travel there. It's online. It used to be famous for making the #2 pencil bodies out of, you guest it, cedar trees. We took a boat tour of the island that educated us on its history, and on the conservation works that Universities are doing around it. Our trip was supposed to be an overnight stop, but we could not resist spending an extra day to tour the island. If it weren't for the biting no-see-ems insects, I would rate this place 11 out of 10. We certainly would like to go back. We camped at Sunset Isle RV Park / Motel in a Travel Trailer.

Tallahassee RV Park, Tallahassee, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

Very small (converted farm land into) campground. I's a particularly convenient pull-through site for overnight stay when traveling the Florida Panhande on I-10 East West. It's right off the highway. It also hosts college games and graduation attendants. A car museum is located adjacent to the campground. They gave us the smallest gravel site. Once we parked the Winnebago Drop (20') on a fairly level area of the site, we could not properly our "10x10 dining tent" without encroaching on the neighbour's property. Staff at the office was very nice. The manager, who lives on the grounds, also came by after hours to say hi. The grounds are very well kept. The little 2-stalls shower house looks a bit like a outhouse, but it's nice and clean inside. Campers are quite accepting. We would stop overnight again if needed. We camped at Tallahassee RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

New Orleans KOA, River Ridge, Louisiana

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $45.00
Overall Rating:

This was a revealing experience, to say the least. This campground is near a major city, but it is safe, quiet and serene by big city standard. However, a camper is bound to have a totally different experience at different parts of the park. We were hoping to have a leveled and shady spot at KOA, but that did not work out as we hoped. They apparently had few availabilities. So, the first spot offered to us was paved with concrete, but we could not access it, because it has a deep depression in front of it that caused our Winnebago Drop to bottom out and threatened to break our stabilizer jacks . The second spot offered was near the tent area at the extreme North East of the park. It was paved with asphalt a long time ago. But now, the big tree roots are protruding through the pavement, which makes it a terrible place to balance a rig. At one time, I thought that I had one wheel delicately balanced on leveling blocks, but soon after, the opposite wheel shifted and caused my tong jack to slip off a stack of blocks in a loud crashing noise. By then, my tired wife was frustrated to tears. We eventually had it balanced diagonally across the site, but that left no space to deploy our camp mat and chairs in front of the little rig. So we put them on the back of the trailer, near a fire hydrant. Strangely enough, we managed to have quite a good time in New Orleans. Some of the hosts were very friendly and informative. So were some of the guest campers. They recommended Dot's Diner: an old fashioned place that serve simple but delicious food (include the sausage in your breakfast, and have the creole sauce shrimps on pasta). We parked our car in front of a library on St Charles Ave where we caught the streetcar to the French Quarters for $1.25. After traveling across four states to get to New Orleans we didn't let a bad camping spot (and a thunderstorm with tornado warning and all...) rain on our parade We camped at New Orleans KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Clerbrook Golf & RV Resort, Clermont, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

This is my personal experience over a weekend stay at Clerbrook under the Thousand Trails pass. Upon entering the campground in late afternoon, we were pleased by the entrance gate, the cleanliness and landscaping of the property. The office was closed, but the gate attendant had our papers ready. Our spot was on grass. It was not a pull through site but we went through the empty lot behind us to make it easy on ourselves. It was perfectly leveled. Water pressure felt like below normal but adequate. The showers, laundry, and garbage disposals were not within easy walking distance from our camp, but most of the campers use gulf carts around the property. During our weekend stay, there quite a traffic of these vehicles around us, but yet, the place was generally quiet in the evening. The dog parks were immaculate. We didn't play golf but the courses looked beautiful. I was still on campus when writing this review, but so far, I had no contact with the office as their weekend schedule was minimal. We could not attach our cable TV connection. The campground cable was not only far from our camper, but it was stripped of its terminal. I later found out from a Comcast service man that we would have to order service from Comcast who would bring us box for the weekend. That didn't make sense to weekenders like us, but we took his words for it. Overall, our experience (up to Sunday night) was a pleasant one. We shall update our review after checkout sometime. We camped at Clerbrook Golf & RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Southern Palms RV Resort, Eustis, Florida

Date of Stay: February, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

At arrival, we were greeted by polite staff. After waiting for an escort to our site for about 20 minutes, we decided to use the map to find our site on our own (the escort was driving an RV to storage across the street, and was prohibited from returning by heavy cross traffic) We selected a different site than assigned. When the escort finally made it, he registered the new site with the front office. Like most of the sites we saw there, it was made of grass. We had to use our levelers for the first time because the ground was quite uneven. There is no cement patio, nor do they have picnic tables (a first for us) nor fire rings. There was dog poop near the power box and the water connection. Bring water pressure regulator because the shore pressure is extremely high. We got free cable TV connection that showed about 8 channels (CNN, Fox Cable, MTV, VH1, Food Channel...). We could not get any over-the-air channels at all. The showers were very clean. They have two large dog parks. The campground is very quiet. We came to this site, because all Thousand Trails parks nearby were booked solid. So I can't say that we will never return to Southern Palms RV Resort, but, if we do, we will make sure to choose a better site. We camped at Southern Palms RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Orlando RV Resort (Thousand Trails), Clermont, Florida

Date of Stay: November, 2016 - $1.00
Overall Rating:

This camp is large: so you get the options of sunny sites, shady sites, or woodsy sites. However, they are all very clean and pleasant. During our stay, we moved from a sunny site to a woodsy one near a lake and dog park. The office people, the ground keepers and the neighbors were very friendly. Though the company had a time -share like marketing meeting for membership sales, they pedaled softly, and were not pushy at all. We gathered precious info in that session.

I'm also impressed by the fact that Thousand Trails is willing to share our feed back survey with TripAdvisors. This is a good indication that they take our opinions seriously. And intend rectify any discrepancies. We camped at Orlando RV Resort (Thousand Trails) in a Travel Trailer.
