That's a tough one. We like many CG's. I guess if we had to pick one we'd pick two. !

Foscue Creek Park. Demopolis, Al. 50 sites. all but 4 FHU, $20.00 per night.
Millers Ferry, Camden, Al. 100 sites all FHU, $20.00 per night.

I could go on but I'll stop with those two.

Camperjunkie, our all time favorite is Jordan Lake State Park near Raleigh, NC. Has 1000 sites, some water front sites where you can park your boat right at your site, a huge lake for good fishing and boats, sites to accomadate any size camper or tent. Lots of sites have elec. and water. (no sewage, but a dump station.) $20 a night (unless SR., then $14)
Our 2nd. favorite is Myrtle Beach Travel Park and Ocean Lakes at Myrtle Beach. We'll take either on we can get res.

I have liked every place I have ever been.

We even liked the little KOA we stayed at in Ohio when we went to get the 5th wheel from RVWholesalers. And I'm really not too big on commercial RV parks, we much prefer state parks! But I guess by far the best time we had was at Dauphin Island, there's only one RV park there and we really enjoyed our stay.

Even with no sewer connections you just can't beat a Georgia State Park for a few days out away from the "rat race"

GA. state parks

Radio, you are so right. We've stayed in 2 GA. state parks and really liked both of them. GA. has a good staff, good parks, and are really laid out good.

Veterans State Park in Ga is a very nice park. Park your boat at your campsite.

Mammoth Cave National Park-- no hookups, nice shady campground, great cave, great canoeing on the Green River, great historic ferrys across same, great back country hiking!!

Red River Gorge National Geological area, in the Daniel Boone national forest, Koomer Ridge campground- no hookups, shady campground, great hiking, great scenery, great big rock cliffs!

Big South Fork National River and Recreation area-- Blue Heron campground, water and
electric, no sewers but pretty good free bath house, great hiking, great overlooks, great old mining camp, wonderful old rail road bridge across the gorge that's now a walking bridge!

Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area-- too many campgrounds to count,
but we especially liked the Canal campground run by the Corps of Engineers, water, electric at all and sewers at some, great hiking, great fishing, great antiquing and eating
in Grand Rivers, great bicycle riding on the paved paths from the North welcome center!
Oh, yeah- two of the best crappie, blue gill, bass lakes anywhere.

Like the energizer bunny I could keep going and going...... we especially like National
Parks and Forest and Corps of Engineers CGs because they tend to be more spread
out with room between the sites. Private CGs - often call themselves "resorts" and
they tend to be crammed together and more expensive.

Kentucky has GREAT parks!!!!!!! We hope to visit every state park in
the state eventually, we've been at it for years and still have a long way
to go!

I couldn't agree with you more. We love state parks. We are 50 miles north from Ga. Haved stayed at any northern GA state parks? If so tell us about them

The last couple of years we have been to Hartwick Pines State Park in Grayling, MI. It is one of two full hookup campgrounds in Michigan. While they have from rustic to full hook up site we use the full hook up. Within walking distance is the oldest virgin Pine trees in the state. Logging and mining were big in the state early on. You are about an hour away from the upper penninsula and Macinac Island. The full hook up rates are $33 per night. When we go to the UP we stay at Driftwood shores on Lake Michigan. Water and electric only with a dump station, no tents.
If we stay close to home we go to Lakeport State Park, Port Huron, MI, about $23 per night just electric but close to Lake Huon.
