This was a nice campground right on the Kal Haven Trail - about 4 miles from South Haven. The RV camping is in a circle in the center of the campground near the bathhouse with cabins and tent camping on the perimeter. There were some very nice woods with paths leading to the Kal Haven and around the campground.
It was so convenient to be able to bike ride, hike, or run on the trail that I hesitate to offer any critique - but I will. The sites and the roads in the campground are all dirt so while we were there it was exceptionally dusty. I could imagine that when they have a lot of rain, it is exceptionally muddy.
Check out the blue stairs beach at Lake Michigan (accessible in South Haven), Barden's Market for fresh baked goods and vegetables, the Depot for sandwiches, wine and beer, and 3 Blonds Brewery - good food and beer. In addition to the Kal Haven, you can access the Van Buren State Park Trail in South Haven. It is a 4-mile paved trail running from South Haven to the Van Buren State Park.
Water's Edge is conveniently located if you love outdoor activities in northern Florida. It is close to a 9-mile bike path, boat launch to beautiful St Joseph's and Apalachicola Bays, and the gorgeous beaches of Cape San Blas. It is also close to Port St Joe and Apalachicola, two small, but lovely towns with shopping and restaurants. The campground itself is okay. The sites are for RVs only and are full hook-ups. They are long enough and level - my only complaint is that they are very close together. The little store at the campground is very convenient and stocks a good, diverse supply of groceries, beer and wine. The campground is also across the street from Indian Pass Raw Bar - known for their raw oysters.
Oak Mountain State Park has a great campground. Our site was A5 and was a full hook-up, pull-through site. A5 was not the greatest site in the campground, but it was still good. The sites are spaced well apart and all are shaded. The state park has a golf course, stables, 2 beaches, kayak/canoe rentals, bike lane through the park, and lots of trails.
We liked our experience so much that we stayed there on the way home!
This was the third time we had camped at Summit Lake State Park. It has always been a good experience. There are two campground loops - one is more open with sites are that are level and the other is in the woods with many sites that are on slopes. We camped in site 120 this time which was on the end so we looked out into the woods. Bonus!
The state park has a nice lake with a swimming beach and kayak/canoe rentals available. If you have a site near the lake you can launch your boat directly from your campsite!
For those of you who are bicycle enthusiasts, the Losantville trail head fro the Cardinal Greenway Bike Trail is only a few miles away. The trail runs from Marion to Richmond and is very well maintained and not crowded.
This is a really nice campground with many shaded sites. We camped in a pull-through full hookup site that was very level. There is a 5-mile paved bike trail that runs through the park. The trail winds through a prairie to where the Wabash and Tippecanoe Rivers meet. Very pretty ride. The state park has a water park and a working farm.
I loved this park. There was so much to do and so many different environments- coastal sandhills, upland lakes, and scrub forests, as well as the Loxahatchee River. The campground was really nice and very private- huge sites. We would probably try to stay at the other campground in the park next time because they have sewer hook-ups, but the campground we stayed in was very nice. We hiked, walked, and rode our bikes on trails in the park. There were trails, paved bike paths, and off-track bike paths. The campground is near Jupiter, where there are many fine restaurants. We rode our bikes to the Blowing Rocks Nature Conservancy(definitely worth a visit) with a stop at the Tequesta Brewery on the way back.
The nicest campsite we have ever had. Paved, pull through, full hook-ups. Very shady and private sites. The bathrooms were very clean. Highlights of camping at Manatee Springs are the springs and the manatee sightings. We were there in January and the manatees were a bit elusive, but we did see some in the Suwannee River which runs parallel to the park. There is an 800-foot long boardwalk that winds through a cypress tree forest and the 8-miles of trails were great for running, hiking or biking. There wasn't a lot to do in the surrounding area although we did make a side trip to Cedar Key, a very interesting little town on the coast. We stopped at Shell Mound on the way back. It is an archeological site in the Lower Suwannee National Refuge where native people created a mound of shells from seafood. The shells formed the little spit of land that still exists there. On another day, we drove to the Withlacoochie bike trail to ride. It was about 45 minutes from the campground but worth it. We rode from Citrus Springs to Floral City. The 2nd half was more scenic than the first with lots of lakes near the trail.
We had been coming to St George Island for years, but this was the first time we had stayed at the state park campground. We already have reservations for next year! It's a beautiful island with white beaches and little commercialism. The state park is a strip of land between the Bay of Apalachicola and the gulf. So many places to explore on foot, by bike, or by kayak. It's a perfect location for bird or dolphin watching, fishing, sunbathing, or beach walking. The campsites are spacious, secluded, and relatively hard to come by. This is one of the state parks in Florida that books up very quickly. The Island is fun to explore. There are a few restaurants and some stores- you can get groceries at one of two small grocery stores near the entrance to the Island. There are two breweries in the area- one in Eastpoint and another in Apalachicola. Apalachicola also has several restaurants and many small stores.
This was a really great campground. Each campsite had full hook-ups, including sewer and paved patios. The sites are very shaded and private. The gorgeous beach is a bit of a hike from the campground, but there is a tram running from morning to sundown. There are a couple of dune lakes that you can kayak on, but only on kayaks rented from the park. The 30A or Timpoochee bike path is accessible from the park and is 19 miles in length. It is a really nice path, but it can get crowded with walkers and joggers. There are also some single track biking in the area.
This KOA has blueberry fields everywhere on the property. For a period of time in summer and early fall, you can pick your own blueberries in the morning to have in your breakfast pancakes! The campground is nice with camping sites that are level and roomy. It has a nice pool and play areas, but the real attraction are the blueberry patches! The campground is only about 14 miles from South Haven where you can shop in a charming downtown, go to a spacious beach or catch the Kal-Haven bike trail to Kalamazoo. We rode 47 miles round trip from Bloomingdale to Bell's Brewery in Kalamazoo.
This tree-filled campground is very near the entrance to the Badlands National Park. Trees large enough to provide shade - what a luxury in the Badlands area! The campground had all the amenities, although the wifi was a little glitchy. The Badlands did not disappoint! We thoroughly enjoyed the park and visited in the morning, during the day and in the evening to catch the sunset. We also transported our bikes to the park to ride on the Sage Creek Road through the national park. It was a great 23-mile ride, although the advertised"rolling hills" were steeper than I would have guessed. We saw mountain goats with babies, lots of bison, and tons of prairie dogs!
Great little campground right next to the Mickelson Bike Trail and very convenient to Hill City. The campground is very well kept and has excellent bathroom/shower facilities. Hill City is a charming little town with several stores and restaurants to visit. It was a short walk into town from the campground. Our favorite ride on the Mickelson was 37 miles long from Hill City to Custer State Park and back. Beautiful ride through woods, over bridges, and past the Crazy Horse Memorial.
The Elroy Sparta Bike Trail, North America's first rails-to-trails project, runs through the Tunnel Trail Campground. The campground is very nice, especially for tents and smaller campers and caters to bicyclists. We had a lot of privacy because it was early in the season and there were very few campers there, however, the sites are fairly close together and if the campground were full, it would have felt crowded. The owners are friendly and very accommodating. The pool looked awesome, but it was a bit too cool to swim when we were there. It's often difficult to find campgrounds near bike trails, which is what makes this campground so great! We rode from Norcross to Rockland with a stop in Sparta at the Market Tavern. We enjoyed the hot ham and cheese sandwich, fried mushrooms, and excellent brown ale. Really great ride with lots of wildflowers, cow farms and tunnels to bike through!
