“Very Nice Campground” for Topsail Hill Preserve State Park
“Great Overnight RV Park” for Texas T Campground3 out of 7 people found this review helpful
Texas T is a great overnight campground. It is right off I-65, literally, which is good news, bad news. Good news, accessible from the off ramp, bad news, road noise which is why I give it 4 out of 5 stars. The owners are very nice, the campground is well kept and pull thru’s are level. Rather than a communal bath house, they have individual rooms for complete privacy. Wifi was good and they accept Good Sam, AARP and credit card payments. It’s located in Tennessee 27 miles north of the Alabama border which makes it a good stop over on the I-65 corridor from the Midwest to Florida.Date of Stay: April, 2012Rate Paid: $25.00
“New CG open” for Grayton Beach State Rec Area3 out of 6 people found this review helpful
We have not actually stayed at this park but I did a survey while staying near by. This is a small park and you can walk to the Red Bar at Grayton beach from here. The new loop is full hook up, gravel sites. They did a nice job. The older CG is tight and not all sites would be suitable for big rigs or long TT's. Some of the sites in the old section back to the dune lake, very pastoral! The new section is open without a lot of trees. Some of the sites in the new section; 39 thru 48 have a clear view of HWY 30A and I imagine the road noise would detract from the otherwise nice ambiance of the park. This is why I give it an average rating. The beach itsself is very nice and just a short drive or bike ride within the park. Its not isolated and I observed quite a bit of day use traffic. Nice park if you want to be close to Grayton Beach and the lovely area but not isolated camping.Date of Stay: April, 2012Rate Paid: $30.00

“2nd Trip” for St. George Island State Park3 out of 6 people found this review helpful
Just left this morning and I must say, this is a hidden gem of a SP. Nice camp ground, GREAT BEACHES and close to some very cool undiscovered old Florida towns. Only caution, the 'skeeters are really bad and the SP doesn't do enough to knock 'em down so bring A LOT of bug spray. Only 4 stars because of the 'skeeter problem this trip.Date of Stay: October, 2011Rate Paid: $22.00
“Good Overnighter” for Deer Run RV Park5 out of 8 people found this review helpful
We travelled from home, about 380 miles to stay here on the way to the Gulf of Mexico, Floriday panhandle. Not a bad park, full hook ups, plenty of cable tv, full service for both AT&T and Verizon. They have one small bath house that was very clean. Only small complaint was that this park is right alongside SR 231 and there is a constant highway noise. All and all thumbs up for this park as a stay over.
Good Sam discount and a better deal if you pay cash rather than credit card.Date of Stay: October, 2011Rate Paid: $26.00
“Stupid Expensive” for Lake Monroe Villiage Resort3 out of 5 people found this review helpful
We stayed at this park 2010 because it was the closest RV Park to Bloomington IN. The site was gravel, uneven and cramped. There are a lot of yearly sites and it looks like quite a party goes on during the summer months. People have built out door cabannas, bars, storage sheds and boat covers.
There is nothing about this park other than close proximity to Lake Monroe and Bloomington that make the rates worth the stay. I just checked for this year and it'll cost $45.00 for w/s/e for just 2 people..add another and its $10.00 more per person. Ridicules!Date of Stay: September, 2011Rate Paid: $45.00
“A true gem on the Forgotton Coast” for St. George Island State Park4 out of 6 people found this review helpful
This is a beautiful rustic state park on the “forgotten coast” in the northern panhandle of Florida. The campground is well maintained with two bath houses. Most of the sites are very deep and spacious, especially the gulf side. They do have pads for handicapped but the majority is just sand with water and electric hook ups, no sewer.
They do not have a camp store or washer-dryer, but you can rent kayaks at the entrance station or purchase a tee-shirt. They have a few nature trails for the hikers in the crowd and even a primitive campground at the Eastern tip of the island.
AT&T cell service is spotty at best and Verizon seems to have better coverage, hence I am able to upload this review using our Verizon My-Fi. However, it is slow, slow, slow so I only check email once a day.
If you are looking for something other than a tranquil beaches or fishing, then this isn’t the park for you. It is at the Eastern end of St. George Island and IS NOT like Top Sail, Grayton Beach or St Andrews. It’s a slow pace, languid park destination in a low key section of Florida. Apalachicola is about 20 miles away and we really enjoy snooping around the interesting stores and picking up fresh shrimp and oysters.
All in all, this is one of my favorite panhandle state parks and one worth checking out.Date of Stay: June, 2011Rate Paid: $22.00
“Good Overnighter” for The Woods RV Park and Campground3 out of 5 people found this review helpful
We found this park to be easy to access off of I-65. Rates are reasonable, especially with a Good Sam discount and the staff is courteous. They give you a key for the rest room for security and each site is a level pull through.
AT&T has full bars and The Woods WiFi is strong and free.
We travel between Tennessee and Florida quite a bit and this is one handy campground!
I nicked one star off my rating because it is not a very secure park so treat it like you would boondocking at a walmart.Date of Stay: June, 2011Rate Paid: $26.30
“Outdoor Recreation Park” for Point Mallard Park2 out of 5 people found this review helpful
Point Mallard is on the banks of the Tennessee River. The campground is close but not on the banks. This park if a full blown recreational facility with a water park, light ball fields, 18 hole golf course, batting cages, ice rink etc and is heavily trafficed by the locals. The rec. facilities are all within walking distance of the CG and you'll hear a fair bit of noise from the rec area. The CG is mostly shaded, gravel sites with a nice bath house. This is not a rustic park or one you'd want to go to if you want to "get back to nature". The bike trail was nice and followed along the banks of the river/lake. The CG was easy to negotiate but camp sites tend to be pretty snug next to your neighbors. We stayed there for a couple of weeks as a base camp due to having business in Decatur and not there for the recreational activities.
If you are looking for a recreational park this one could be a 5 star for you. I'm giving it 2 since its not the kind of park I would seek out.Date of Stay: October, 2009Rate Paid: $24.00
