Olive Branch Campground, Oregonia, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2018 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

Close to the interstate, but very quiet. Lots of pull through sites. Site was level, had a nice picnic table and fire pit. Easy to navigate through the park even with a large fifth wheel. Staff was friendly and Park was very clean. We camped at Olive Branch Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lake Milton / Berlin Lake KOA, Lake Mllton, Ohio

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

We travel a lot as full timers so we have stayed in many parks. Ohio seems to be lacking decent campgrounds. Until finding Green Acres Lake, we had only found 1 park in Ohio that we actually enjoyed staying at. It seems most Ohio parks are crowded, unfriendly, and filled with drunk campers and unruly kids. This park is clean, quiet, and well run. I highly recommend this park. We are even considering staying for a full season next year as finding such a nice park is difficult in this area. Staff is friendly, helpful and pleasant to do business with. What we found very refreshing is that they actually enforce their rules. That is probably why it is such a pleasant place to camp. We camped at Lake Milton / Berlin Lake KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Wilderness RV Resorts at Silver Springs, Silver Springs, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $21.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park with lots of things to do in the area. A nice little restaurant is right in front of the park. Had a great breakfast there. The Lodge (a meeting room?) was very nice with a big screen TV, books, and games available for campers to use. The screen porch was especially nice in the evening when the mosquitoes come out. They also have kayaks to rent. We didn't rent them, but did walk down and see the river as well as walked the Greenway which runs right through the park. All in all a terrific place to stay. Our site was paved, with FHU including cable which we didn't even watch we had so many other things to do. It appears almost all sites are paved, but some a slightly sloped, but not enough to create any issues when you set up. The only downside is that there are no picnic tables so if you like to eat out you need to bring some sort of table on your own. We have a collapsible one. There are some trees around, but lots seem to be mostly open and sunny. Many of the lots are privately owned, but the people were very friendly and helpful. There are no fire pits either, but didn't miss that was the temps were pretty warm. Highly recommend this park! We camped at Wilderness RV Resorts at Silver Springs in a Fifth Wheel.

Calhoun A-OK Campground (formerly Calhoun KOA), Calhoun, Georgia

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

This was our first time staying at this park. We couldn't get a reservation at our regular stop on way to Florida so thought we would give this park a try. Staff was very friendly and helpful, but like many KOA parks the sites are tight. We were in a pull through, but our poor neighbor still had to move their truck off their site for us to pull out. The nice part of the park was that 2 pull through had brick patios with a nice patio set (for extra $$). The petting zoo is very small, but the peacocks were very cool and wandered all over. Not afraid of people at all. It rained the entire time we were there so didn't really spend much time outdoors. We did get our warm cookies, yum. All in all, not a bad place to lay over, but it is a little tight for bigger rigs. I wish I could give it a better rating as the staff was great but the uneven sites combined with the tight fit forces me to lower the score. I would go back though if I couldn't get into our favorite park. We camped at Calhoun A-OK Campground (formerly Calhoun KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Little Farm On The River LLC, Rising Sun, Indiana

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

It was pouring rain the entire time we at the park so we didn't really get a chance to do much or even take advantage of the area. We chose to stay on the upper level which we later found was somewhat of a mistake as the sites all have really bushy trees with lots of low hanging branches. We found out later that the sites on the lower portion by the river don't have that problem. From the little bit we could see through the rain, it appeared to be a nice park with lots of family activities. It is also near 2 casinos, one of which will come to the park, pick you up and return you for free. We were so tired and wet we just opted to stay in for the night. It was rather far from the road, but the drive was easy and had it been sunny probably rather scenic. The site was FHU and very level and long. We hope to go back when the weather is better. We camped at Little Farm On The River LLC in a Fifth Wheel.

Fire Lake Camper Park, Bowling Green, Ohio

Date of Stay: September, 2015 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

Great little park that surrounds a lake. Close to I-75 and a nice place with layover for a night or two. We are a big rig and the pull through was adequate with a nice picnic table and fire ring. Unfortunately it was raining the entire day/night we were there so we didn't get to use them. The only downside to this park is that there is no sewers, only water and electric. Being full-timers, we like a full hook up when we can get it. But, the park was quiet, clean, and easy to get in and out of. Lots of nice little places nearby to visit and very close to BGSU. We will definitely put this place on our list of good parks to layover at. So glad we found it. It was a great value with the Passport America discount. We camped at Fire Lake Camper Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A great place to stay if you are visiting Bowling Green State University. There is also a great car museum, Snook's Dream Cars, as well as the quaint little town of Grand Rapids, OH nearby with dozens of little shops to explore and a fantastic river walk and museum.

Wilmington RV Resort, Wilmington, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $26.00
Overall Rating:

We like this park for its easy access to I-71. We stop here every year on way to and from Florida. Nice people, nice staff, and with Passport America discount a good value. The park roads are gravel but well maintained and can accommodate big rigs. Sites are gravel. Ours was not quite level and could have used a little more gravel. As this was the first weekend, they were opened for the season. It appeared they were still doing some spring maintenance. This park only has 2 pull thrus which are really just curves in the road but it worked well for us as we only spent 1 night and left early in the morning. There is no cable so if you are relying on a satellite dish it may be a problem getting signal as the park is mostly wooded. The few sites without trees appeared to be occupied by seasonal campers. We camped at Wilmington RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Cardinal Center Campground, Marengo, Ohio

Date of Stay: May, 2015 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

What a great find! We like pull though sites when we travel for the ease of getting in and out rather quickly. The sites here are level, large, and really long. Everything a traveler could ask for. The wifi was the best we've encountered in our travels. Since we full-time RV we have hit many parks and I can say this is one of the best ones we've found. We were here on a weekday and the park was pretty empty. It's a great park with plenty of sites. Would make a good location for an RV rally and will recommend to our RV club to consider it in the future. We will definitely be making this a regular stop when do a Florida run. We camped at Cardinal Center Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Close to Columbus, but far enough out to avoid city noise and traffic. Lots to do within a 50 mile radius. The park is also a sports center for trap shooting. They have a large rec hall, large meeting center, indoor pool, fishing pond, and play area for kids.

Gulf Coast RV Resort (formerly River Lodge RV Resort), Inglis, Florida

Date of Stay: December, 2014 - $17.00
Overall Rating:

Here for the winter season so rate reflects monthly rate of $500. That's all inclusive (electric, cable, FHU, WiFi). I'd give this park a 10 if the bank who owns this park would find a better management company or better yet, turn the park management over to the staff that's on site. The staff is terrific and really do all they can to make things right, but the management company has no idea about RV parks and won't do what needs to be done to really service the guests. Older reviews say good WiFi - not any longer. Hasn't worked since we got here. Once the park has more than a handful of trailers, you can't get on so you better rely on your own mifi or forget internet access. The pool is supposed to be heated, but its kind of sketchy. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't. There is no pool cover, so the heat escapes and after a couple cool days, the pool can be quite cold until the heater (when it works) has time to warm it up again. It is unfortunate that the management company (hired by the bank as the park is bank owned) is really bad and knows absolutely nothing about running an RV park. The park really need a meeting room or clubhouse and activities. The staff on site are separate from the management company and couldn't be nicer or more helpful, but as I said earlier, if the bank was smart they'd just let the staff runs the place and stop wasting their money on a poor management company, and spend it instead on upgrading the WiFi, adding a clubhouse or gathering room for activities, and getting a pool cover. The regulars have tried to get activities going on their own, but without a place to congregate it's hard to do. Another annoying thing is the signs on each loop have the wrong site numbers on them. There is no one to guide guests to their site so most times you see trailers or Motorhomes driving in circles trying to figure out where their site is. It would be nice if they had a "Work Kamper" who could lead people to their site. It's really a shame as the park grounds are pretty and it's an excellent location. We camped at Gulf Coast RV Resort (formerly River Lodge RV Resort) in a Fifth Wheel.

Southern Gates RV Park & Campground, Arabi, Georgia

Date of Stay: November, 2014 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

Should have paid more attention to the abandoned buildings in the area before we checked in. Only needed to lay over for a night on way to Florida so we weren't really concerned about amenities, which turns out not to be an issue since they have none. Nothing works here. There listing in the PA site is pure hookup. One of the managers hurried ahead of us to warn the residents to hide all their pitbulls. Felt we were in the movie Deliverance. Did not feel safe and was glad to pull out first thing in the morning. We choose this park because their ad said all sites are pull-thrus which we like when we are only laying over for just a night. Pull through is a misnomer as the electric post seemed to be just scattered around in some random fashion so who could tell where the sites begin or end. But, since they park was nearly empty except for the creepy residents, we just drove over the grass. Will never go here again. We camped at Southern Gates RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Barton Springs Campground-Normandy Reservoir, Normandy, Tennessee

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful park with great views of Normandy Lake. All sites are pull thrus. Park staff was great. Each site had nice picnic table, fire ring, and grill. Close to distilleries and other attractions. If you do camp here, do not follow your gps! We found out after following ours over some pretty narrow twisting roads and one very bad railroad crossing that for some reason, most GPS units send people in this way when there is a very easy route using 2 wide nice roads if you exit the interstate 2 exits down. Take the exit that says Normandy Dam instead. I suggest getting directions from the campground and not use your GPS at all. Otherwise, it is a beautiful campground. Will definitely be going back there and staying longer. The only downside, is the lack of FHU. The sites don't have sewer, but the dump station is easily accessible when you leave. If it had sewers, this would be a 10. We camped at Barton Springs Campground-Normandy Reservoir in a Fifth Wheel.

Wildwood RV Village (formerly Wildwood KOA), Wildwood, Florida

Date of Stay: October, 2014 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

A little pricy, but it does put you close to the Villages and is right off I-75. Sites are very small and short except for the front row. Our rig was too long to fit when connected to truck, but being there in October, there park was pretty empty so it really didn't matter to us. The pool is very nice and the park is clean, but very little grass. Mostly sand and lots of sand burrs. Had to make sure dog stayed on pavement or close to it. Dog run is OK, but just sand. Staff is very friendly. I'd definitely stay again, but not during a busy season unless just to overnight as I don't like camping so close to my neighbor that my awning almost touches them. All in all, I'd say its a typical KOA. We camped at Wildwood RV Village (formerly Wildwood KOA) in a Fifth Wheel.

Thompson / Grand River Valley KOA, Thompson, Ohio

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

Came for the Fourth of July festivities. Great fun, and was glad to see new owners continued the fireworks show. It is really great! Only complaint was the constant traffic of cars speeding, yes, speeding! Even the golf carts fly around. Apparently no one enforces the 5 mph limit. Several times I had to jump away or get run over. I was afraid to walk to the bathhouse at night for fear of being run over. Otherwise it's a nice park, that is being updated. I could give this park a much higher score if a couple improvements were made. The bathrooms are disgusting and covered in cobwebs. With that many people they need to clean them more often. There was plenty to keep kids busy, but would have liked to have something like putt-putt where parents could participate with kids. All in all, its a great park, and since the owners seem to be updated it more each year, I'm sure it'll be a "10" park before long. We camped at Thompson / Grand River Valley KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
