Campground Chat

It is interesting to compare campgrounds.  I am new to RVing, having tent camped in my previous life.  I am still, and will be for a while, re-formulating my impressions and preferences with regard to campgrounds.  Photos are above the stated RV Park.

Pecan Park RV Resort, Jacksonville FL.  PA, $21/nt.  Nice place, recommended, designed for the RVing folks on the move.  Clean, well maintain, spacious enough if not a little 'sterile' in style.  Long rows of concrete pads, perfectly sectioned, just off the interstate and near an airport.  Not a perfectly quiet place, but not a bother either.  Has all the essentials, and in bad weather, the place would be preferred being all paved and easy to keep stuff clean. Easy access to shopping and anything of interest in the area; nature, museums, city life, cruise ship port, fishing, etc.  We enjoyed our time here.

 Hardeeville RV Park, SC.  PA, $20/nt. Old school, recommended.  We pulled up, did a self check in, and never spoke to or saw a staff person in 3 days.  Wooded, gravel / dirt roads, good utilities, quiet, spacious.  Only laundry sheds, no common areas.   Roads in SC are horrible, GA not much better.  Easy access to Savannah GA (10 minutes) and Hilton Head SC (30 minutes), about 15 minutes from I-95.  We enjoyed our time here.

 RV Resort at Carolina Crossroads, NC.  PA, $21/nt.  We had just had a tire blow out.  This destination was unplanned, but a nice outcome. PA is valid only one night.  This location is close to a big name concert hall.  They promote many special events.  This too is a 'sterile' campground.  Nice staff, easy check in, easy access from I-95.  Good utilities and all the necessities, but a 'tight' park, close neighbors and made for the RV road warrior.  The web site was down when blogging, so I linked the facebook page for into.

 Thousand Trails (aka: Outdoor World or Encore) Williamsburg VA, recommended.  Nice staff.  Old school 'resort style' facility.  Lots of on site activities of average attraction.  Hilly terrain and roads and 'tight' RV sites.  Paved roads, wooded, lots of Oak tree sap on the car daily, but easy to remove.  Some slight interstate noise and noisy neighbors when crowded, but I slept fine. Good utilities.  Easy access to a really nice historic area of the nation. We are here for another week.  Our schedule is 'fluid' and we are here for at least another week.
