fallwa17 Very pleasant staff here. We were led to our site. Here we are on site 14, beside a small creek. A couple of years ago we sat out a major rainstorm here for a couple of days and that little creek was up to the table!

Date of Most Recent Visit: Apr 2010

 fallwa2 This has become an annual stop-over point for us each spring on our way back north. Last year we were on the same site. We were here ten days earlier last year, which makes quite a difference green-wise.
fallwa3  Gravel and grass sites have some large trees around them for some cooling shade in hot weather. Most of the RV sites are pull-throughs. Shown here: sites 34 and 35.
 fallwa4  Big rigs are quite comfortable here. Sites are level, and offer E(30/50A)/W/Cable hookups. Some also have sewer, such as sites 29 -26 – 24, shown here.
fallwa5  There are also some grassy sites suitable for tents or pop-ups situated alongside the creek. Shown here – sites 19 and 20.
 fallwa6  The pop-up is one site 18, with 7-8-9 to the right of the creek.
 fallwa7  Site 6 on the left.
 fallwa14  A good over-view of the campground, with sites 1 and 2 on the left.
 fallwa9  Site 4 is to the left, while our LD is on 14.
 fallwa13  There is an over-flow area nearby with 7 sites with hookups. The main campground is beyond the storage facility in the background.
 fallwa15  When we arrived at 2 PM, these sites were all vacant. By 7 PM, they were full. These are double sites, which can make access interesting.
 fallwa10  The campground has a nice little bathhouse; clean and with hot showers.

In its 2007 ads, Falling Waters claimed to be internet-friendly. This is what they meant – an outside pay-phone. Let’s hope it’s not raining when you want to dial in.But….there were several open wi-fi access points from outside the CG. (No sign of them in 2009.)

Update: We discovered on this visit (Apr 2010) that the campground now has free wi-fi. But…it appears that it is not available in the overflow area. We had no problem from site 15.

 fallwa12  Alongside the campground, under the same ownership, is a small RV supplies store.

    We have stayed at Falling Waters numerous times coming and going to Florida. It is as you describe. Accommodating, unpretentious and convenient. We’ve recommended it to friends who also have stayed there. It is a good stopover for those who need an economical night’s rest while travelling. But, I am sure it would be perfect for a mini vacation during the summer months.
