Jacksonville North / St. Marys KOA, Kingsland, Georgia

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

This is a well kept park with a lot of tall pine trees throughout the park. There are a number of seasonal campers but they are clean and quiet. The park has easy access to 95 but that also means you hear the traffic noise, it isn't too bad, but is certainly noticeable with the windows open. This makes it an all right stopover for a night or so, but not for too long. They provide a free waffles or pancake breakfast daily and it was very good. A number of the pull through sites are too short to leave the car attached if you also want to hook up to the sewer unless you have an extra long hose. I observed this with 3 other motor homes during our stay. If I had left my car attached, it would have been 3 feet from the neighbors front door. Some of the campground lights are too bright at night, we had one that was just outside our bedroom window which meant we could either close the blind and get no air in the window or feel like it was still daylight out with the shade up. The amenities are typical for a KOA campground. WiFi was decent. We camped at Jacksonville North / St. Marys KOA in a Motorhome.

Skidaway Island State Park, Savannah, Georgia

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

Great, quiet well shaded park with flat sites that are plenty big. Many of the sites are a bit curved or too small to position a big rig, especially because of all of the trees, but all the sites have lots of room. Some are closer to the road than others and most will have difficulty with satellite. Although cable is listed as available to all sites, we couldn't get it at ours. Luckily, since it was a rainy weekend, I had picked a site where we could position a portable dish as I noticed a number of others had done. It seems this cable issue has been going on for a while; hopefully it will be fixed soon. All of the sites have a nice level tent pad. About 1/4 of the sites have sewer and about half of all of the sites are 50 amp. Once you check in you drive around and pick a site based on what type of site you reserved based on availability. There are some nice trails and an interpretive center. It is about a 15 minute drive to Savannah and the park supplies directions. Very good senior rate, be sure to ask if they don't ask you. I would have given this campground a 10 if the cable was working. We camped at Skidaway Island State Park in a Motorhome.

Lake Marion Resort and Marina, Santee, South Carolina

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We tried to get into the State Park but it was full. We decided to try this park that did not have any RV Park Reviews. It was adequate but just. It is almost completely taken up with full time and seasonal occupants, most with old trailers. It was somewhat noisy and the sites are not well kept. The campground roads, the ones to the sites, were dirt and extremely rutted. The main attraction to this campground is most likely the access to the lake but nothing here I would call a resort, as its name applies. We were in a 50 amp/water site that was out in the open; all the sites are grass, where it isn't dirt. The website lists a pool, but I never could find it. The park is close to the town of Santee and just over the bridge from the Wildlife Preserve and just about 5 miles from the State Park. We camped at Lake Marion Resort and Marina in a Motorhome.

Fayetteville RV Resort (formerly Fayetteville / Wade KOA), Wade, North Carolina

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

This is a pretty, well kept campground. It used to be a KOA. About half the sites are in the trees and the other half in the open. All the sites seem to be of decent length with the pull-throughs being plenty long to keep a toad or trailer attached. Unlike some camp grounds, the utilities are located properly for staying attached. The park has a nice walking trail through the woods. Tuesday through Sunday they serve a complimentary breakfast. This park is very close to 95 but has little to no noise from it. Cable connection quality is decent and is included at no extra cost. It is not too far from Fayetteville, so there are things to do if you so desire. The sites are spaced well with plenty of room between sites and easy to get into. We camped at Fayetteville RV Resort (formerly Fayetteville / Wade KOA) in a Motorhome.

Charlottesville KOA, Charlottesville, Virginia

Date of Stay: September, 2014 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very pretty and well shaded park. It has cable (fairly grainy on some stations) so you don't have to use satellite but some sites can get it anyway. The access road is a little winding, especially coming from the west, which is the way most GPS sends you; use the CG directions instead. The entrance to the park is hard to make coming from that direction and care must be taken when exiting as there is a blind curve to the left. It is one of the few parks that does recycling, not mentioned on the written information (even though you don't need to separate the items from the trash - "single stream"). I gave this park a 6 because we had a lot of issues with the electric. I know it wasn't the park's problem as they couldn't fix it, but the voltage at night was 130-135 volts which tripped our surge protector, as it is supposed to do over 132 volts. The answer I got from the office was those things frequently malfunctioned and that we should just unplug our suppressor (as recommended by the manager's father - an electrician?). Obviously we weren't going to take that bad advice. And I know that our unit was properly functioning as the motorhome in the next site was having the same issue and when they asked the manager, she said she had not heard of any issues, even though I was just leaving the office. The manager said she contacted the power company to address the issue. Again I know they had no control, but it was the attitude that bothered me. Hopefully the issue has been resolved. We camped at Charlottesville KOA in a Motorhome.

Poe's Southfork Campground, Front Royal, Virginia

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

This is a very plain Jane park with only a few sites that all back to the river. Pads are gravel, barely. We arrived in the early afternoon to find no one at the office. We asked someone that was a seasonal camper and he had no idea what we should do. The signage said to call a number and not to pull into a site. We called and two hours later still no return call. We went ahead and picked a site, anyway. Finally someone, not the manager, came by and took our payment although we could not use our credit card as was stated on the web site. The water was also very brown even after running the water for a minute after hooking up. We only stayed overnight although we had planned on a 3 night stay. We camped at Poe's Southfork Campground in a Motorhome.

Ridge Ranch Campground, Newton Falls, Ohio

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

We picked this park because it had a playground and a place to swim. The playground is excellent with numerous apparatus for different age levels. The lake not so nice, the bottom is slimy and the "beach" is nothing but dirt. The campground is mostly level but the roads are very rough, The sites are gravel and uneven so water tends to sit after it rains. The wires in a few places are low, so much so, that I watched someone coming in get caught up in the wire crossing the road. The "pull thru" sites are front back ones making them a little confusing, especially the connections and which to use. Our neighbors were very noisy into the evening with their motorcycles and music, the park seems to cater to lots of seasonal and day workers. The sites are mostly treed. We camped at Ridge Ranch Campground in a Motorhome.

Spaulding Lake Campground, Niles, Michigan

Date of Stay: July, 2014 - $31.00
Overall Rating:

We have stayed here several times, the owners are always nice, the park is clean, and the sites are level. There is a playground of sorts, but it is not very well kept but not dangerous. The lakes(ponds) are nice and fishing is allowed. The sites are grass and of medium size and length, they are easy to get into and many are shaded. We use a portable satellite dish and have had no problem getting set up in the treed sites. This is a nice campground, not to far from Elkhart. They only take checks and cash. I gave it an 8 because it lacks the amenities that some parks offer. We camped at Spaulding Lake Campground in a Motorhome.

Ramblin' Pines Campground, Woodbine, Maryland

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $48.00
Overall Rating:

I have stayed at this park at least 5 times over the last 7 years, as it is near our summer home base and is where we store our MH over the summer. I can't see how someone could give this campground a 3 but to each his own, and it probably stems more from some personal issue than the campgrounds quality, but some issues can cause some major ill feelings. The campground is clean, the staff is mostly friendly although I do find they work at a very slow pace, I can't imagine how long it would take to check in during a busy time. There are about a dozen campsites in the open where satellite is possible, but other than those, just plan on using the included cable (newly added in the last few years). The playground, although a little aged, is functional and the pool is OK. They have a snack bar during the busy season. Some of the sites are a little rough to get into because of the dense vegetation. The only real issue I have had, and I find this at a number of parks, is that when the camp host takes you to the site and gives directions for backing up, they use such small and unintelligible hand singles, you would think they were sitting behind you, rather than 40-50 feet away. This was also done at dusk getting into a very wooded site. When possible I have my wife do this job as she is much better at it than someone that supposedly does it many times a day. The office store is well stocked, they have a miniature golf course and do recycle aluminum cans. They have a sizable storage lot, but it is very pricey at over $100 a month. They do have a captive audience in the DC area. We camped at Ramblin' Pines Campground in a Motorhome.

The Barnyard RV Park, Lexington, South Carolina

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

We have used this campground as an overnight stop several times. The sites are short and mostly open sky, I could leave my car attached but barely. I put out orange cones as my MH mirror and car bumper were at the roads. They said to call ahead and make reservations for a longer site. It has dirt/gravel pads. The office staff was very pleasant and helped me find an emergency service person for my AC that would come to the campground. We camped at The Barnyard RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fort De Soto Campground, Tierra Verde, Florida

Date of Stay: June, 2014 - $41.00
Overall Rating:

The campground is absolutely beautiful, many with water views, egrets walking through the campsites, and dolphins swimming by. It is well kept and the sites are very wooded, sometimes you can't even see the rig next door. The heavy growth may make getting into the site a little rough for some less experienced drivers especially those that have to back a large fifth wheel on a curve. If you want to get satellite, it may be all but impossible. I picked a site that I could put my portable dish by the water. The roads do need work as they have a lot of potholes. Some of the sites are narrow, but the length makes up for it. The beach is a bit of a drive, so don't plan on walking or biking to it. Water view sites are a little more expensive than the interior sites. They have a separate pet campground. The pad and sites are gravel/sand and are level. We would have stayed longer but weekends are difficult to get unless you make reservations months in advance. Wish it had sewer. We camped at Fort De Soto Campground in a Motorhome.

Piddler's Pointe RV Resort and Campground, Steinhatchee, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

Clean CG with very nice hosts. They let me use their power washer as my windshield was completely covered in May Flies. The sites are gravel and level but are open with no shade. They have a nice pool. All the sites are back in and are easy to do so except the last two because of the buildings in front. The signage at the road was extremely poor and we missed the entrance and had to drive a few miles toward town to find somewhere to turn around. We camped at Piddler's Pointe RV Resort and Campground in a Motorhome.

El Governor Motel & RV Park, Mexico Beach, Florida

Date of Stay: May, 2014 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

This is an OK campground if you like being close to the beach; in fact, it is across the highway from it. You have access to the hotel pool as the CG is owned by the hotel. The CG is a basic no frills bare bones dirt and grass lot. A few sites are pull-thrus. Good for a one or two night stays, although there are many seasonal units. If you like to fish, a lot of the folks here do. We only stay here because we like the proximity to the ocean. Mexico Beach is a very quiet. one stop light town, but beware if it is spring break. The beach and parking can be difficult for such a small town. We camped at El Governor Motel & RV Park in a Motorhome.
