Quiet and Relaxing

A really nice, quiet state park located about 50 miles north of the Little Rock metro area. All sites are full hookup, mostly level but some side to side leveling is probably needed, all have asphalt paved pads. Generous space between sites. Around some of the sites could use more grass, there was quite a bit of rain while we were here and it left dirty, muddy residue in many spots on our particular pad and our hoses and electrical cord.

The lake is small but also very quiet and safe, trolling motors are the only motorized means of power that is allowed. The rangers office can rent canoes and kayaks by the hour or half-day. Small swimming beach with lifeguard on duty during the summer months. There is a small fee to swim during this time. Nice fishing pier but bank fishing is readily available and very popular.

Take some time to hike the Huckleberry Trail; there is also a mountain bike trail about 9 miles in length. If you aren't biking it can still be hiked in sections. Also the original Woolly Cabin is interesting to visit.

Received several channels via the over-the-air antenna including all of the major networks. Some sites can support satellite reception, most do not. There is now wifi available near the check-in station and gift shop.

We enjoyed our visit over 4 nights in our travel trailer and would return.

Not a Resort

There is nothing about this campground that would make you think it is a resort; I'm sorry but having a swimming pool does not count. It's walking distance to the beach and several restaurants, conveniently located to much of the local Biloxi area. Sites are really narrow and while the campground roads are paved the sites are not. They are a mixture of gravel and mostly dirt with a nearby concrete slab with picnic table. If there is a big rain your site could be muddy.

Many sites have trees but we were able to just satellite reception with no problem. For the major networks we wanted to use their cable box (included in your rate) but couldn't get it to operate properly; no problem though because all of the major networks are available with a roof-top antenna. Wifi works well most of the time, but of course slows down during the evening hours with heavy usage. Most every site has an awkwardly placed sewer connection in the very back of the site, and you'll probably need a sewer extension along with your regular sewer hose to reach. Not a problem if you're prepared.

Several year-round residents. Tent camping is also allowed and quite popular. Pretty large laundry room. Did not use the bathrooms and/or showers but it seems to be in working order. And the above mentioned swimming pool was very clean and well maintained. All in all it isn't an awful place by any means but definitely is not a resort. We stayed here 7 nights in a travel trailer and would stay again.

Quiet and Convenient

Quiet well-maintained campground. Close to the Military Park and anything else in the Vicksburg area. Sites are close together and some leveling will be required at most sites. For large RV's getting into your site can be difficult; they are not angled properly and most Class A's that I watched pull-thru their site their back wheels and/or toad vehicle ran off the pavement into a muddy grassy area adjacent. Not impossible just difficult.

Very few trees, satellite reception is excellent. Wifi worked well most of the time while we were visiting.

We spent three nights here in a travel trailer and would stay again. Nightlhy rate reflects GS discount.

OK for a short visit

A nice very compact, clean RV Park that is conveniently located and is a short drive to anything in the Tulsa metro area. Sites are narrow, very close together and rather short in length, but even the largest RV's can get properly positioned by slowing down on approach and pulling forward/backward as needed. Fully paved mostly level pads and paved roads, with some small grassy area between sites. All sites are full hookup but they are located at the very rear of the pads; in some cases depending on the location of your particular hookup an extension hose may be needed for connecting your water. There is no cable tv offered, but numerous channels are available over-the-air and satellite reception works very well at any of the sites. Wifi worked well the entire time of your stay. The park also has bathrooms, showers, a laundry facility, and propane for sale.

The only downside is the highway noise. The interstate is adjacent; and while that tends to be pretty common with many parks with this one it was very evident that the highway was very closeby. Bring your earplugs for a good night sleep.

We stayed here 4 nights in a travel trailer and would stay again.

Fantastic

A beautiful RV park in a beautiful coastal location. Convenient to the Apalachicola area as well as points northward, and less than 10 minutes to the St. George Island beaches. The park has tiered pricing depending upon which row you are reserving and its' adjacency to the Gulf across the highway. We stayed in the 3rd tier of the resort and the rate paid reflects that; felt that the 1st tier was just too close to highway 98. The highway noise was not a problem especially during the evening hours; the traffic calms down and if you are running the AC in your RV you won't hear a thing. Also the water is easily visible from any of the first three tiers, not so much for the back three tiers behind the building and bathroom complexes. The company also has a sister campground down the road that would offer a similar experience without wifi and the swimming pool.

Full hook-up site that are fully paved with many paver stones for accent, some grassy areas. The sites are close together but expect that given the location. Every site has a picnic table but no firepit. Excellent wifi service and no problem getting the satellite signal as there are very few trees and none where the RV's are parked. They have a beautifully maintened swimming pool, a nice big clubhouse, small fitness room, a small laundry is also available. Didn't use the showers but they are hands down the very best I have ever seen in an RV Park; do yourself a favor and check them out even if you're not planning to use them!

We stayed here 3 nights in our travel trailer and would return.

Clean, Safe, and Convenient

This park is easily accessible from I-1o but not close enough that noise can be heard from the highway. It's convenient to everything offered in the Tallahassee area and not more than 15-20 minute drive to just about anywhere especially the downtown area. All sites are full hook-up and pull-thru, and very close together. They're mostly dirt, sand with some gravel and fairly level.

There are quite a few trees here; I wasn't able to get the satellite signal but their cable tv that is provided has a pretty robust channel lineup. Wifi service worked well and the rv park has about 3 different antenna locations and signals to balance the demand load.

I feel the park is overpriced even at the (discounted) rate of $41 but there aren't many choices in the area. We stayed here 3 nights in our travel trailer and would stay again.

Good overnight

There are very few RV parks or campgrounds on I-22 between Memphis and Birmingham that are within a few minutes of the interstate highway. This place is easy access about 5 minutes off the highway and very quiet. The amenities are scarce but all sites are full hook-ups. Payment is cash only.

There are several trees but we were able to get the satellite working on site #2; only one over the air channel was available. This place would mostly be good for an overnight stay if you don't want to take on the big city traffic late afternoon/early evening.

We stayed here one night in a travel trailer and would stay again.

Clean, Safe, and Convenient

Very convenient to all that the St Louis metro area has to offer, with excellent access off the 370 highway, as well as I-70 but not close enough to hear the noise. Level sites with some paved but mostly gravel sites with good spacing between, many sites have a terrific view of the adjacent lake. The sites are plenty long so RV's of any size/type as well as your tow/toad vehicle will fit. All sites are full-hookup and easy to access. All have a concrete patio with a picnic table and fire ring. The park is patrolled by park rangers daily and we saw them several times making a loop of the RV park and adjoining property.

There is no shade here so it can be quite hot at times; satellite reception is excellent at all sites. There is no cable television service offered but all of the major networks are available with your over-the-air antenna. The park has wifi but it is not strong along the perimeter sites.

There is an excellent 4.5 miles paved trail around the lake, it's great for an early morning walk or bicycle ride. There are other parks nearby and closer to the city, but they do tend to be noisier, more crowded, and more expensive. This park is only 5 years old, in excellent condition, and serves as a terrific base to explore the local area. We stayed here 3 nights in a travel trailer and would visit again.

Low frills, low cost

Not much to do but a fairly quiet place to spend one night or even a few more. The traffic noise from nearby Main Street quiets down around dusk and is pretty quiet all night long. Level asphalt paved sites, a few pull thru's but mostly back-in sites. Generous space between sites. Satellite antenna works well at nearly any site, a few over the air channels are available.

Because this is a city owned park it isn't private meaning anyone can drive or walk thru the place at any time of day/night. That wasn't really a problem but you do have to get used to vehicle traffic occurring a few times per day.

We stayed here 4 nights in a travel trailer and would stay again.

Beautiful setting

A beautiful COE park adjacent to Beaver Dam. There are 48 sites scattered into 3 distinct areas but most are located on a small island just offshore and connected to the mainland by an earthen levee. Most sites have generous spacing between them. Don't worry if you don't have a waterfront site because every site has a view of the water and in every direction. Fairly level sites, electric only, paved, some shaded, some near the water not shaded. There isn't water at the sites but there are 3-4 water taps scattered around the park to fill up on your way in. The dump station is located just off the main entrance road.

There is no cable or wifi here but several over the air channels available with the rooftop antenna including 3 of the 4 major networks. Satellite antenna worked well here and would do so at nearly every site. There are a handful of sites near the water with a lot of trees that might pose a reception problem. Cellular signal was very strong.

This is a fairly quiet, peaceful and beautiful setting. There is a sister park below the dam; either park offers excellent fishing and this park with its' boat launch also offers excellent boating activities. Go outside well after dark and check out all of the stars in the sky, you won't be disappointed. We camped here 2 nights in a travel trailer and would visit again.
