Camper turned RVer

very nice older park

Beautiful tall pines amongst the level, for the most part, campsites. Electric & water at sites, but no sewer. Full hook up sites are being built. Senior discount got 10% off. Only stayed one night for about $26.00. We lucked into the primo spot on the lake point and super level. Highly recommend this park, but undestand that it fills up fast, especially on the weekend. The best park we came across on our Louisiana trip.

Another swampy Louisiana SP

Almost feel sorry for the park system. All this rain & nowhere for it to go.

All in all it is a pretty nice park with level asphalt pads. Some full hook up, some w&e only. Didn't get to see most of the park as it was closed due to flooding. No cell service at all. Did not try the bath house. Basically stayed in our rv because of the mosquitoes.

Very RV orientated for a state park

Very well done and very RV orientated, Nicely spaced level sites. Decent dell service on both ATT & Verizon. Quite a hike to the beach thru mosquito infested under brush. The wholeark islevel making for easy bike riding.

Swampy campground

Not sure if theyjust had rain ornot but water is standing every where. Did not have reservations and was assigned site 12. Wouldn't have been my choice, but there wasn't that much to choose from.Park was actually pretty decent, just didn'tlive upto the hype I have read. 30 & 50 amp & water at the site. Asphalt pad pretty level. Decent cell ATT & Verizon. OTA TV had  channels, but did't really check it out.

Highlight was Westwego Shrimp Market 2 blocks away. Great prices on fresh shrimp.

Up & coming park Not there yet, but coming.

When we arrived the bottom land loops were closed due to recent floods. The upper loop has paved roads, pads were decent size with huge gravel rocks. Well spaced sites  mostly level. Not a lot of shade, but still nice. signs of work being done every where, from parking areas to hiking trails. Very clean & well maintained. Plently of distance between sites. Use caution in using gps or even google maps they try to turn you onto an almost non existing gravel road off the main hiway. Follow the signs.

Cell  wes good for both ATT & Verizon. Did not try OTA TV nor the showerhouse.

Guess it used to be nice.

Thankful it was for a night over only. Far too many long termers. I mean when their stinky slinky is replaced with rigid 4" pvc they're not here for the weekend. Nice large level concrete pads with some growies between sites. I got the impression that it used to be a top notch RVPark and now it's going to pot. Not our style at all  It is a run down RV park. Not a campground.

Cell signal was good, but no OTA TV.

Super clean park

Very nice nice level concrete sites with plenty of parking space for coach & toad. Camp amonst the tall pines with a view of the lake from most every site. Good ATT & Verizon cell service. Did not try OTA TV. Shower house was very clean with plenty for hot water that was controlable. Park was so clean the roads were blown clean of leaves & pine needles twice a day by worker on a driven power blower. Every site was full hook up. $12 a day with geezer pass. This wasn't our first time & hopefully not our last. Just off 55. Only falut might be, the dumpsters are at the entrance of the park. None in/near the campground.

Super nice small campground

Very nice campground with 30something sites. Mostly 30 amp with a few 50 scattered about. Sites were not the fartherest apart, but each was very spacious. Large level gravel sites with water, but no sewer. Free, but spotty wifi throughout the campground. Shower house was new with 4 separate rooms. ATT & Verizon cell was decent. Did not try OTA TV.

Peoples Creek COE

Very nice smallish park. Mostly level sites with electric & water for $10 with geezer pass. Definitely a fishing lake. Plenty of extra parking spaces dispursed about the campground. Sites are open, but well spaced. Some site are full hook up, but most are e&w only. Bath houses look fairly new & clean, although we did not use them. Decent cell service for both ATT & Verizon. Did not try OTA TV. Will definitely return.

Doris Campground

A truely interesting park. The Wichita mountains give you a sense that you can almost feel the native Indiaans. Mysterious & spiritual aura that surrounds you. We were in an electric loop with maybe a dozen other sites. Being from themidwest, not use to the barron granite mountains & scrubby little oaks. Deer & turkey were odten strolling thru our campsite, undaunted by our presence. No cell service. No water, as the recent freeze broke water pipes that weren't repaired yet. Covid shut down the bath houses.

Our loop had 30 amp, not sure is 50 was available else where ornot.

Very nice park with some dislikes. Tables & fire rings were to the rear of the site, not along the side. Also constantly windy. Very!

Keystone State Park

Only Green Country loop was open when we started out, but others opened once we got there. Nice level sites, concrete pad with full hook up.  Good ATT & Verizon service. Did not try OTA TV. Pretty convient to 44 which made for a great night over. Might return for a lnonger stay.

Stockton State Park

Real nice park Especially for what we paid. $8.00 for electric only per night. Senior rate off season, $2.00 discount. Two loops East & West. We stayed in the east on a fairly level site, all nicely spaced. Most sites are pretty level, except some that back to the woods. Good ATT signal. Did not try OTATV. Dump & fresh water were near by. Real friendly camp host. A great night over for us.

Persimmon Hill Campground

What a great park. Or should I say another great COE park. This is the cleanest park we've seen. Very big rig friendly with large concrete pads with a little extra room for a boat or toad. Great vieas of the lake, which is said to be one of the best crappie lakes in the United States.$20.00 a night for full hook up and the geezer card bring it to$10.00. Can't beat that! Both ATT& Verizon came in strong. Did not try OTA TV. Shower facilities were also great with plenty of hot water and very clean facilities. Although you can hear Hwy 55 on a clear, calm night the route to the park isa bit tricky, as a bridge is out. But should be completed by this spring, I was told. Will definitely return. But keep in mind, we stayed a couple of days and left before the weekend. A quick walk around the park showed almost every site was reserved for the weekend starting Thursday. A popular park and worth it.

Great find

This was one of the better parks on this trip. Most sites are on the water and with great views of the lake. We chose #2 which was great. Site 1 was a good ways away, behind us so to speak, and to our door side was a good expanse of trees & brush. Site #3 was barely visible. There are about 8 sites on the hill away from the water, close together and seem nice for the largest of rigs. Our tablet & phones both showed available park wifi but it was very intermittent and not reliable. We used ATT & Verizon which both worked fine. Easy drive on good roads. Would definetly return.

Waterfront sites

In all fairness we did not even check out the loop away from the water, but the ones on the water were very tight.  There were only 8 of them and we chose the last one, #8. # 7 was right on our bumper, so to speak. Their table, fire ring, were on the wrong side. Pads were concrete and moderately level. Site 1-6 were close together.

We had no ATT nor Verizon, but some OTA TV stations. The park wasn't bad, but coming in from the north the roads were terrible, small and a long ways. The shore line was pretty littered.  For a COE park, this was at the bottom of the scale for us.

Chickasaw State Park

One of the strangest parks we've been to. There are two campground loops. One for trailers/RV's, they call it, and the Wrangler, equesterian. The trailer/RV loop is on the side of a hill. It was amazing the way they got so many half way level sites into this area. Very, very tight. Good thing for us it was booked up and we ended up in the wrangler loop. A nice flat area more suited to larger rigs. Some, as was ours are very,very close together. Most are pretty level and easy access. Ther is no office that we cound find and when we asked a local, his reply was, "You got a reservation, then just got to the site & yur name & date will be on the post. Yup, it was. Pretty good for a night over. Just can't give it a real good rating. Att & Verizon were both workable. OTA TV not so good.

All in all, doubt if we'd go back.

Real nice RV Park with easy access

Real nice RV park orientated toward rigs of all sizes. Easy to navigate the roads, with every site level concrete. ATT & Verizon both worked fine. Wifi & cable included in the price. 10% discount for Good Sam, military & seniors. Right off a hiway (W) and a bit noisey, but all in all a nice park, especially for a night over. Sites are reasonably spaced, many with large trees. Not real far off 55. Would stay here again for a nioght ofer and even an extra night. They also have a dog park area.

Little Girls Point County Park

A true hidden gem! But come prepared. They provide greate sites with terrific views and electricity. That's it. No water. No dump facilities. No fire wood. No store, ice, etc. The price is hard to beat at $20 a night, period. No taxes, entrance fees, reservation fees, none of that. The center for agate huting, better have a good eye & lots of luck. They are there, but few & far between. Still fun to walk the beach and pick up rocks.

Copper Falls State Park

Another nice Wisconsin state park with plenty of privacy on each site. Room between with lots of growies. No cell signals at all, or at least no ATT & very limited intermittant Verizon. Nice trails and beautiful falls. Plenty of big rigs scattered throughout the campground. Roads are nice, but windy. Another very busy park.

Pattison State Park

Very nice, clean park with easy trails. Sites were well spaced with brush/trees between. ATT & Verizon both worked fairly well. One on the nicest night overs we encountered so far. Would return. Big rig friendly with decent roads.
