March 21, 2014 - overnight
New Green Acres - Walterboro, SC
$30./night
Our rating 3.5 out of 5

Sites: Large shaded sites amid a pine forest. The gravel sites need to be re-leveled and more gravel added. Large muddy ruts from RV tires in many sites.

Hook ups: FHU
Pets: Very pet friendly. A really nice dog park converted from a miniature golf course, so there are obstacles for the dogs to climb and agility equipment added. Plenty of room to run.

Satellite: Might be difficult with the heavily wooded pine trees.
Walterboro, NC seemed like a nice little town. There was a chili cook-off while we were there, but being only there overnight, we did not attend.
Friendly people, but park seems a little run down.
Constant din of Interstate 95 traffic, but it didn't bother me too much.

March 5 - 11, 2014 - 1 week
Cedar Key RV Resort - Cedar Key, FL
Site#21  $34./night
Our rating 5 out of 5

Sites: For a resort type layout, the sites were spacious with a lot of green area behind the site. Cement pads and picnic table.
Hook ups: FHU
Laundry: Only a couple of washers/dryers outside on a covered porch
Pets: Very pet friendly. A small dog park with poopy bags supplied.
WiFi: Very good
Verizon Internet: Good
Satellite: Good
Activities: While we were there, they had a pot luck dinner. We sat with a couple that just arrived. There seems to be cliques and were told "these seats were taken" even though there was no indication.
Mail delivery accepted: yes
Area/Town/Sights: 8 miles from the quaint town of Cedar Key, FL. Lots of restaurants, plenty of boat rentals, plenty of souvinier shops. Parts of town are quint historical buildings and part of town is just very touristy.

We really enjoyed our time hear. We were very happy with our site, with the dog park, with the area to walk the dogs. Clean and safe park. We will consider wintering here.

February 26 - March 4, 2014
Torreya State Park - Bristol, FL
$18./day
Our rating 4 out of 5

Sites: Dirt/grass.. Decent space between sites. Most are fully shaded with pine and live oak trees.
Hook ups: W&E Dump station near the entrance of park.

Bathrooms: Nice bathrooms, some are even private like in a house.
Laundry: Outside behind bathrooms. Only $1. per load. Only 1 washer and dryer, but worked fine. No where clean to fold your clothes.
Pets: Very pet friendly, lots of trails to walk the dogs.
WiFi: no
Verizon Internet: Good
Satellite: We were able to set up our Sat, but it was almost in the next site, since park is heavily treed.
Book Exchange: There is a nice large lodge in the middle of the park, with couches and a wood burning stove. A book exchange and puzzles are in this lodge.
Activities: Ranger activities, trails, 
The downside to this park is the dump station is too far away and because the sites are dirt, we constantly has to sweep the sand out of the RV. It got very muddy after a rain.
