Talking Any good RV parks on way to Florida

Any good reviews for RV parks on the way to Orlando from Indianapolis? We are probably going to head out toward Cincinnati on 75 and try a different route through the Carolinas on 77 and pick up 95 through Georgia. Looks like there might be some good places to camp maybe in Virginia and the Carolinas.

Try looking on the RV Park review website. Only you know where you want to stop.

We liked Dreyer Island State Park in Georgia. It's about 20 miles off the highway but worth the drive. We were in a drive thru site, right on the lake, site 14.

Hunting Island State Park in SC, just north of GA is beautiful! It's a half hour or more from the interstate, but the park and Beaufort are both worth the trip and deserve a couple of days visit at least. The sites in the loop closest to the ocean are small and don't offer much privacy, but the back loops are nicer, although a little longer walk to the beach. The bath houses are old and need repair and sprucing up, but the location can't be beat.

If you take Tom325's advice and take I-65 I can recommend Oak Mountain State Park just south of Birmingham. It's close to the interstate, has FULL hook-ups, in a beautiful location with trails, and golf course, birding, conservation center etc. We've stayed there a couple of times and really enjoy it.

I don't have any specific recommendations, but you could go to woodalls.com and look for CGs along your anticipated route.

I live 45 miles north of Atlanta......Dawsonville, Ga. Take my advice and avoid driving through or near Atlanta!!! Way too many drivers in and around the city and suburbs who have a bad case of "cranial/rectal inversion" to suit any sane driver.
Good luck and God's speed to you.

Hunting Island is a very nice place but used to be better. Beach erosion has caused the loss of campground sites, the sites appear to be smaller, and the reserve system makes it difficult to get a spot unless you plan way ahead of time or you may get lucky if staying only a coupe of days or someone cancels at the last minute. The bridges have improved but still a little narrow. Hunting Island is a little too far away for us now unless we can stay a week and we can't plan too many months in advance so we haven't been able to camp there for years. Last two trips we stayed at a cabin but they are no longer available now I believe also due to erosion. It is a very popular and beautiful place (lots of mosquitoes in the back spots) but a bit off of I95. The fresh shrimp at the Gay Fish Company are great.
