Jonathan Dickinson State Park, Hobe Sound, Florida

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

What a great park, clean, quiet and big! We stayed here for 5 days and wanted to stay longer. Park staff very friendly and helpful. Sites are level and spacious but some are kinda close to your neighbor. Close to the beach, Jupiter or Hobe Sound, restaurants and shopping. We are panning a return trip next year! We camped at Jonathan Dickinson State Park in a Travel Trailer.

John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park, Key Largo, Florida

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Sites are very tight but deep. My neighbors sewer hookup was right by my door-ugh! I was unable to extend my awning. Lots to do and see at the park and shopping, good restaurants are close by. This campground is great for a base camp for all the activities but not for the "camping experience". We camped at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Tomoka State Park, Ormond Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: August, 2018 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

We used this park for an overnight stay. Park road is tight but we saw no issues with overhead branches. Our sight was loose sand and had a challenge getting level. Plenty of vegetation between sites. Narrow road presents a challenge to back in a trailer, but doable if experienced. I would stay here again. We camped at Tomoka State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Henry Horton State Park, Chapel Hill, Tennessee

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in site 35. Deep campsite that was pretty well level (1 linx leveler) and shaded. Concrete picnic table, fire ring with flip over grill, water and electric. Newly paved! Bathrooms spacious and clean with high showers ( my 6'4" sons appreciated not having to stoop under the water!) Camp hosts were helpful, friendly and available. Quite and peacefull! Able to get some off air TV channels from Nashville. Decent wifi and Verizon phone service. We would come back again--Nice campground! We camped at Henry Horton State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Gulf State Park Campground, Gulf Shores, Alabama

Date of Stay: April, 2013 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

What a fantastic park! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Level paved sites and big rig friendly. Decent space between you and your neighbor. No cable, but you get all the channels needed from your off air antenna. Lots of walk/bike trails and level campground roads to ride. Close to the beach and other activities. Just opened the zip line in the park too. Lamberts restaurant was a great place to eat that wasn't too far away. We liked it so much, we are planning another trip! Highly recommend this park! We camped at Gulf State Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah, Georgia

Date of Stay: May, 2012 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Nice park with plenty of space between sites. Some loops can be a little tight turning into them, but if taken slow you should be fine. I would recommend this park as it is close to Savannah and surrounding areas to use as a base camp. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Travel Trailer.

T.H. Stone Memorial St Joseph Peninsula State Park, Port St. Joe, Florida

Date of Stay: April, 2011 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

3rd time we have been here but the first time camping in Gulf Breeze in the travel trailer. Park is still as awesome as ever. The only negative I had with the park is they allowed an Evangelical church group to camp in multiple sights (50+ people), complete with buses. They would have an hour long Christian concert at night complete with group singing and musical instruments. Why they allowed that is BEYOND me! Other than that, this park is one of my favorite to visit! We camped at T.H. Stone Memorial St Joseph Peninsula State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hard Labor Creek State Park, Rutledge, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2010 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Camped in site 47 which was down in the valley but very secluded. Great park with lots to do in the surrounding communities. Staff is very helpful and friendly, including the camp hosts. Facilities are a little bit older but well kept and clean. We camp here often as it is close to home, yet we can still enjoy the outdoors. We will return again soon.

Hard Labor Creek State Park, Rutledge, Georgia

Date of Stay: March, 2009 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

Great campground. Level sites, clean rest rooms and showers. Too bad the lake is down due to the drought, great lake sites. Close to shopping and Interstate 20. GA State University runs an observatory at the park once a month. Unfortunately, we were camping during a monsoon and we were not able to attend. We plan to go back during the warmer weather for golf and swimming. We camped at Hard Labor Creek State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Cloudland Canyon State Park, Rising Fawn, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2008 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We camped at the west rim loop last weekend and were very impressed. The other posts saying that the west rim loop is the better than the east rim loop are absolutely correct. The campground is very well-maintained. The sites are large with plenty of greenery for privacy. The bath houses are thoroughly cleaned and stocked each day. The camp ground hosts are very kind. One even asked me on my way out of the bath house if the floors looked okay enough to wait until after the early morning rush to be mopped. There is a laundry room in each bath house with a huge dish sink and drain board. The east rim loop was still very nice and is closer to canyon trails and disc golf course. We did both trails and actually liked the west rim better for the views and fewer people. The east rim trails take you down hundreds of steps to the waterfalls. The scenery makes up for the steps but this is definitely a stair master workout! The disc golf course is well-kept and nicely laid out. The holes in the forest are more than a challenge! We spent a good bit of time talking to the staff at the camp store. The rangers and check in staff could not have been more polite or helpful. The camp store carries a limited supply of necessities and there is a convenience store just a half a mile from the park entrance. We highly recommend this park and the whole family is looking forward to visiting again soon. We camped at Cloudland Canyon State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Fort Boonesborough State Park, Richmond, Kentucky

Date of Stay: August, 2008 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

Arrived at the check in Friday night and was greeted by a worker who was very curt. No map or directions were given at check in as to where my campsite or bathhouses were located. Water hook ups are located away from the electric hook ups, so you will need to bring an extra long hose to get water. We were in site 73 and we were more than 25' away from the spigot. Lots to see and do and shopping is less than a 10 minute drive. We camped at Fort Boonesborough State Park in a Tent Trailer.

Davidson River Campground, USFS, Brevard, North Carolina

Date of Stay: July, 2008 - $18.00
Overall Rating:

Only sites with electric are 9 and 23 and the campground hosts. I wouldn't count on getting electric. Poplar loop is generator free. Don't let the Reserve America info fool you. RA only has about a third of the sites for reservations. The rest are first come, first served. Most of the sites are level, spacious and private, except the Riverside loop. You are a bit closer together and that loop has a new bath house. There is no hookups in the campground, but you do have a dump station and flush toilets with really HOT showers. Lots of double sites to go camping with friends, and sites on the river. Lots to do in this area--Sliding Rock, Cradle of Forestry, Fish Hatchery, Tubing, Fishing, Hiking, Blue Ridge Mountains and of course, the waterfalls. This area is known for its many, many waterfalls. Gorgeous! There are 2 campground hosts per loop and management will not tolerate partying or loud behavior. Great place to bring your bikes and ride around in the campground! This is probably the BEST family campground we have camped at. We will be back soon! We camped at Davidson River Campground, USFS in a Tent Trailer.

Twin Lakes COE, Pendleton, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2008 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

What a great campground! I can only imagine if the lake had been at normal levels, how that would look. It still is a beautiful lake. I would say that 95% of the campsites are on the lake--there is not a bad site anywhere. Sites are deep, spacious and private. Campground hosts were friendly and helpful. The only negative I can say about this is the men's comfort station only having 1 commode, 1 urinal and 2 showers on a large loop. No info on the women's. Had to play the waiting game on the weekend mornings and evenings. Stores, restaurants are just a short 10 minute drive. I was able to get a cell phone signal from ATT while I camped. Clemson Marina is on the other side of the lake where you can rent boats and drive them over and dock next to your campsite. I highly recommend this campground to anyone. No wonder it made the top 100 list 2 years in a row! We camped at Twin Lakes COE in a Tent Trailer.

Stephen C. Foster State Park, Fargo, Georgia

Date of Stay: April, 2008 - $24.00
Overall Rating:

WOW! What a park! If you like being away from civilization and getting back to nature, then this is the park for you! Quiet campground. Great wildlife viewing--lots of gators, birds, mosquitoes, turtles, snakes and deer. Did I mention the army of mosquitoes! We rented a small motor boat to tour the swamp instead of taking the guided tour. What a great suggestion from the ranger. We were lucky to go when we did as the yellow flies come out in mid May which make mosquitoes look like pets! I can't imagine what it would be like in the middle of summer. Ugh! The restrooms were kept VERY clean our entire trip, even though they are a little outdated. My only complaint, beside the mosquitoes, was the lack of shower/rest room facilities for the campground. Too many campers and not enough facilities made for a wait each morning and evening. You will have to pay an additional fee ($5) to get in the park, because the state park is actually located inside the Federally protected swamp. You can see where the fires burned portions of the park. It is truly amazing to see how fast it is recovering. We loved this place despite the mosquitoes, (did I mention mosquitoes?)we are planning a return trip next year for spring break. What a jewel of a park! Nothing else like it. My 2 boys, 11 and 9, loved this park. Like other posters have said--make sure you have everything you need because it is a ride to get anything and come back. The camp store has a few necessities, but I can tell you personally that they don't stock milk! We camped at Stephen C. Foster State Park in a Tent Trailer.
