Good campground for kids in the south

Hello everyone.

I am trying to plan our summer trip and was looking for some first hand recommendations on good campsites for kids in the Southeast. We live in Florida and can go anywhere from GA, AL, MS, AR, TN, SC and NC. We have a 35 foot class A and need 50 amp hookups. Our kids are 3, 7 and 9.

In the past we have tried the jellystone park in FL which was nice. Unfortunately, we recently stayed at a "family friendly" site near LEGOLAND that had several permanent residents who were not happy to see kids, and didn't mind letting us (and the kids) know it.

After this experience, I figured I would seek some first hand advise before booking our next trip. I like to fish, and the kids like activities, so anything with an amusement park nearby and/or lots of onsite activities would be great.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Jason

Try any of the North Myrtle Beach campgrouns which are right on the beach, but make your reservations early as they a busy during the season. Look them up on line. I'm sure all have 50amp hookups

Stone Mtn...NC

We stayed at Stone Mtn State Park in northern NC last March and loved it. No amusement parks per se. but we camped right next to a babbling brook and it was gorgeous. The kids (7, 9, 10, 10.5) loved it. They could wade in the water and walk on the rocks. They went hiking. All in all it was really nice, peaceful and quiet.

Ive always been happy with KOA's when traveling with children. Most (most I've visited) have family activities including pancake breakfasts, movie nights, and often some type of activity. Many just have playgrounds and perhaps a game room. The KOA reservation site offers a list of activities at each campground and photos of the campground. Sure I have been to a few KOA's that are just "OK", but many have been exceptional. We haven't traveled east of the Mississippi, so I have no specific recommendations.

TN

I just saw that you also said TN. We stayed a few nights at a lovely small park in Pigeon Forge. It's called Up The Creek (www.upthecreekrvcamp.com) and it was wonderful. 2 creeks come together to frame the campground. It is out of the way yet very close to all the Pigeon Forge/Seiverville activities and theme park. There is also an indoor water park in the area that allowed daytime visitors that my kids really liked.
We would go back here in a minute!
Hope this helps.
Stacey

Ocean Lakes Campground, Myrtle Beach SC is good. They have lots of activities for kids of all ages. They do fill up quickly for the summer but you may still be able to get a site. They have tie dye, fire truck rides summer camp for kids, ceramic painting and some other things. Have fun where ever you go.

If you can stretch to KY, try the Prizer Point campground right on Lake Barkley. We used to go there for Easter break when my sons were younger and they still talk about how much fun it was.
- fish off the dock with crickets
- rent a pontoon boat with a slide
- Land Between the Lakes has a planetarium, bison range, and 1800's homestead

X2 for Ocean Lakes! Lots to do for kids of all ages, very well kept facilities, paved roads with concrete pull through pads, pools and lazy river, skate park, and the beach right at you. Close to good food and entertainment, if you need to leave the campground at all. This is a very friendly, family owned camp ground.

Flamingo Lakes RV park in Jacksonville. Nice lots, a large lake with many water features for the kids. A great onsite place to eat. Evening activities, Great little bar. Give it a try. We had a blast.

Stone Mountain Park in Atlanta would be worth a look also. Lots of things to do in the park, and in metro Atlanta. I'm not a real big fan of the camoground, but I do like the Park as a whole.

Stone mountain in Atlanta, GA is excellent. We went a few weeks ago and are going back for Memorial Day. The park has lots of activities for the kids. They also have a Great laser show every night. Check out their website and you will see all they have to offer. I have also been looking at Nashville Shores camping resort Nd water park. It looks great for kids. Both if these places offer discounts to their attractions when you camp there as well.
