Petersburg Campground- Appling, GA

I haven't had much chance to get my MH out much, since I just finished a 2 year renovation on her. Last year I scored 4 tickets to the Masters and we stayed on Lake Thurmond just north of Augusta, GA. Great site on the Lake, full hook up,and only 24.00 per night. Very level and clean

We have several here in Washington that we like to go to. Three are state parks; Fort Worden,Grayland Beach, and Cape Disappointment. There are several other state parks we like,but these are the favs. We also like Salt Creek Rec area on the straits, Point Hudson in Port Townsend. These all have awesome water views.
Almost all the Oregon state parks are places to be and then there's Seven Feathers in Canyonville.
In California we like one in Bakersfield, Orange Grove, where you park between the rows of orange trees. Costonoa and Moss Bay KOA's and Paradise by the Sea in Oceanside.
A kinda fun one is the little rv park in Snowville,Ut called Lottie-Dell, that we found one day and have stayed there a couple of times. You pull into your site, go to the office and fill out an envelope with your $25 and that's it. There are a few folks living there in a bunkhouse type motel and the restrooms are in the office and are old,but very clean. If you want you can go to the office and pick up a LARGE bucket of balls and take a provided antique club and hit balls on a driving range,actually a pasture with distance signs, for fun.

It has to be Disney Worlds Fort wilderness. We always take the bicycles. We rode 52 miles the last trip. This is a campground for folks that don't like to just sit and talk.

We just spent four nights there two weeks ago - while I must say it was clean and convenient, but it would be nothing I will write home about - the roads are very narrow, sites too close and also narrow - my 45' and the toad barely fit on a Premium Site (#852), the front desk was not very knowledgeable about sites, access, etc. It took us two hours before we found one we could use. I found that aspect very frustrating to say the least. On the other hand, the convenience and shuttle services to the parks were great!

Libby's RV park in York, Maine. On the ocean you can see two lighthouses with Lobster boats working in front of you. Fires allowed.

Topsail Hill State park near Destin FL.

Beverly Beach Camptown in Beverly Beach FL. Pack you in but you are 30' to the ocean. Sit behind your RV and watch Dolphins and Whales.

Huguenot Memorial Park in Jacksonville. No hookups. But on the mouth of the St. John's and the Atlantic.
Watch cruise ships and Navy ships including maybe a carrier go by and a few sites you can literally fish from your patio.
And the sky is filled with Military aircraft.

Yep, Bella Terra is a great fall destination. Too cold for us in winter though.

Bella Terra is nice but it's not even the nicest park in the Gulf Shores/ Orange Beach area. The following are my picks.
1. Heritage RV is hands down the nicest park in the area. It's an owned/ rental park
Pros, beautiful park, direct water access,marina, private beach, infinity pool, and the owners go out of there way to make renters feel welcome.
Cons, it's pricey, figure $60-$90 per night depending on the location within the park and the season.
2. Buena Vista, it is a new park on Beach Blvd just across the road from the beach
Pros, location, very well kept and appointed, any place I can hear the waves crash is a plus with me.
Cons, it's still under construction, phase one is finished and sold, phase two is selling and under construction. Phase three and four are planned. A lot of traffic noise along Beach Blvd.
3. Terry Cove, it was previously owner only but just recently transitioned to rentals.
Pros, beautiful park, great location, two restaurants within walking distance and 10-12 within a short bike ride. Bike path just outside the gate. Near Gulf state park bike trails.
Cons, no direct water access even though it's only a few hundred yards from the water.
4. Bella Terra, a very nice owned/ rental Class A only park.
Pros, beautifully landscaped park with big sites and patios, centrally located lake with great views.
Cons, it's 5-8 miles from shopping, dining, and the beaches. You have to drive to get to anything. It's in the middle of farm fields and can be dusty during the farm season.
5. Lake Osprey, allows Class C and fifth wheels.
Pros, large well appointed park with a lake and large sites. It's beside a golf course if you golf.
Cons, it's 10-12 miles from shopping, dining, and beaches.

Heritage, Terry Cove, and Bella Terra are class A only. Buena Vista and Lake Osprey allow other RVs but I'm not sure of the restrictions. These are just my opinions based on staying at or visiting all of the above parks so it's worth what you paid for it and there are a lot of parks in the area that I have never laid eyes on.

I was there three years ago in the middle of April for ten days. The weather was gorgeous everyday. If gets a little hot in June, the beaches are very nice and not too far.
Enjoy, and safe travels!

We drove by it when we were there. From a distance, it appeared that the lot sizes made it look too congested. However, will definitely keep it in mind. Thanks for nice descriptions!
