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.

We love Prairie Creek COE Camp Ground, White Hall,Al. 56 campsites, water and elec. hookup only. Beautiful "old south" setting with Spanish moss everywhere. Located on the point where the creek and the Alabama river meet. Late at night you can see deer in the woods.

favourite places

We also enjoyed Hartwick Pines in Michigan. It was very clean and had alot of tall trees. We enjoy camping in Canada in Wheatley Provincial Park. It has a great Thanksgiving/Halloween weekend with spooky haunted sites. It also has nice wooded secluded sites as well as sites over looking the water. Depending on the site, they do have water and electrical. The kids love Yogi Bear Jellystone Park in our hometown of Amherstburg Ontario. Lots of fun for the kids!

Oregon Coast State Parks!!!

Full hook up sites $21 - $27

Oregon has beautiful, well maintained state parks. All paved. Jr. Ranger programs for the kids. Never had a ban on campfires. Great beaches.

Our favorite state parks are:

Bullards Beach State Park (Bandon, Or)
Honeyman State Park (Florence, Or)
Beverly Beach State Park (Newport, Or)
Fort Stevens State Park (near Astoria, Or)

Our favorite spot is wherever we're going next, but if I had to choose one or two It would be Rock Island State Park in TN or Sylamore Creek Camp in AR. Both are reasonably priced($17 to $22 per night), clean and quiet. Rock Island has beautiful waterfalls and it's just a short drive to Burgess Falls which is spectacular. Sylamore Creek is in Mountian View, AR and is the home to Blanchard Springs Caverns.

Thanks for providing the links. Really liked your pictures. Climbing up that mountain of sand I'm sure was fun.

Boy! All these places seem great (and cheap). We are from NJ and do most of our camping at camp grounds in NJ (with the exception of Lancaster, PA in the fall and OC, MD for a week in the summer). We spend at least $55-60 nite - if not more! I would live to find a place near us for the prices listed in this topic.

You're 100% correct there. We go to Lancaster PA, Ocean City,MD and Myrtle Beach each year and it's not that cheap during off-season.

Wow, sites sure sound cheaper south of the border as we are anywhere from $35-50 at conservation and provincial parks with hydro and maybe water hookups
