"Worth more than an overnite stay"

We stopped for one night on a south-north trip up I-29, but easily could have spent a longer time here. It is in the Loess Hills area of Iowa which was absolutely beautiful. The nature center consists of a "lodge" which was an education center... Read more

"Not the best, but had what we needed."

We chose ABC because our daughter was going to work during part of our stay, so needed reasonable cell service and we had very good bandwidth on Verizon and ATT in our site at this campground. We did not need the booster. They advertise wifi,... Read more

"Beautiful location. Many, many long-term campers"

Barton Springs is a TVA campground on Normandy Lake in Normandy, TN. It's between Nashville, Chattanooga, and Tullahoma, TN, so close to a lot of population. The setting is absolutely beautiful which should make it a 4 or 5 star campground. ... Read more

"Site quality varies dramatically"

We chose to stay here to do the Zipline adventure located in the State Park near the lodge. Rate reflects fees/taxes. We arrived on a Thursday during the Covid-19 shutdowns. The campground was about 1/3 full. Check-in was through a store... Read more

"Huge park with lots to do"

As a Friends of GA State Parks Supporter, we used our 3 "free" nights at FDR State Park. There was a lot of site construction going on, so space selection was limited when I made our reservation. Site 308 was one of the least desirable... Read more

"Close to Providence Canyon, Site Quality varies"

We stayed here on a trip to visit Providence Canyon which is about 8 miles away. Our rate reflects a 20% Friends of GA State Parks discount. The campground is very pretty, but remote. Sites are mostly large and level with trees around them,... Read more

"Pretty park, but a drive to everything"

When you have scratched off all the states on your map in the lower half of the US, but LA, you just have to make a trip there at the next school break. We chose Poverty Point State Park as a base to go to Poverty Point World Heritage site and... Read more

"It all depends on the weather"

We arrived at this FHU state park in the Keys after a few days dry camping in Big Cypress, so we had high expectations. The entrance is beautiful and easy to access. The sites are pea gravel base, level, and FHU. Almost every site had trees... Read more

"Great base camp for Everglades and Big Cypress with excellent cell service!"

Cell phone coverage is hit and miss along the Tamiami Trail. It is almost non-existent at Midway CG, but Monument Lake had a tower right next to the campground. The sites surround a lake and there was a lot of flexibility in how you could... Read more

"Experience can differ depending on site"

Hillsborough River State Park is pretty close to Tampa, has a few hiking and biking trails, and a beautiful kayaking river. The campground is a very mixed bag. We spent 1 night in site 35 which was fine, but I saw many sites that put other... Read more
