Southgate RV Park – Other reviewers at rvparkreviews.com
The Lowe’s overall rating = 7 out of 10 stars
Noise level and overall “feel” of the park?
The owner (this is a “one man shop” according to him) was helpful
and friendly. Although a fairly busy street runs by the front of the
campground, traffic noise was not bad.
Road and site access/type?
The interior roads and sites were gravel.
Spaciousness/levelness of sites?
Spacing between sites was quite generous. Our site (#79) was
long enough for the RV and we were able to park the car next
to it. It didn’t look level when we arrived, but I was able to move
to the front of the site where it was level enough that I didn’t even
need the jacks.
Utilities and WiFi/cell reception?
The 50-amp power was strong, and the water pressure was high.
Definitely need a regulator at this place. The Verizon signal was
marginal, but good enough that we were able to get our work
Picnic table and/or fire pit?
No table or fire pit. We thought a table should have been included
for what we paid – about $32 per night.
Facilities – bathrooms/showers/laundry room?
There were two “multi-purpose” bathrooms in the middle of the
campground. Each of them included a shower, and one of them
included the single washer ($3.50 per load) and dryer ($2.00 per
load). I haven’t seen that configuration before, but the showers
were clean and I would use them.
Pet and/or kid friendly?
I would not rate this place as kid-friendly – no pool or other
activities for the little ones. There were some large grassy areas
that were nice for dogs to run in.
Bike/walking trails nearby?
Nothing right out of the park, this place was close to a highway
so there were no places to walk except within the campground.
Grocery stores and other services nearby?
There was an IGA grocery just down the street, and other stores
and services within a few miles of the campground.
This was really just a stopover place on the edge of town, which was
fine with us. We had family to visit so our expectations were not high.
The Devil’s Den State Park just 25 miles south of town was our next
destination, and that is where we planned to do our hiking and hang
out in the woods. But we would come back here if in the area and
needing a place to hang out for a few days.
