The rate is Coast to Coast (GNP) This campground is great. Great sites, Wi-Fi, full hookups, nice people, and the best thing of all its very dog friendly. There's a huge fenced dog yard where the dogs can romp and play. If I wasn't headed to Colorado I'd stay here a week.
I was there with a rally and there were about 550 campers that had 30 amp electric. There's water spigots about every 7th trailer. There are a few dump stations. The fairgrounds are huge and beautiful, lots of views, lakes, places to walk.
This is a most unusual RV park. It covers a city block in an industrial area of downtown St. Louis. There's no grass, no trees, back in sites along the fence are electric only, and the middle is full hookup pull throughs. The couple who run it, or own it (?) were very nice and helpful. I'm a single woman and I never worried about the location. Its dog friendly, but you have to walk your dog outside the gate. There are grass and trees along the perimeter. I would stay here again if I wanted to stay downtown.
This will be a five star RV park when finished. I say that because its still a work in progress. It's been raining for days so there's mud all over, because not all the landscaping is finished. In spite of that its a great place to stay. Full hook-ups, great wifi, no big trees blocking satellite and super nice owners. The bathrooms are all separate so its like being in a regular house. I will come back and stay here again.
This is a great Passport America stop right off I-75 but not a lot of highway noise. It has a rebuilt little "town" with shops and country music concerts. You check in at the shop on the left side of the road, then go across the road to the campground. I can't think of anything to complain about. Full hookups for 14.50, what's not to love?
This is a real no frills, nothing fancy place. That said, the WiFi was great. The campground host could not have been nicer or more accommodating. The people who live here were all very nice, everyone spoke to me when I walked my dogs. You can stay next door for $35.00 or stay here for $12.50 with Passport America. I know I'll stay here every time I go through Georgia on 75. When approaching, go past Harvest Moon Park: its the next place on the right.
This is a no frills campground, with open and shaded sites. The owner keeps it immaculately groomed. The rest rooms are spotless. It's easy on and off I-75. The price is right, the WiFi great, the sites are level. It's the perfect place to hop off I-75 for the night.
I have always liked this campground, have been staying here on my way north and south for years. I'm a fulltime RVer and winter in Florida. This year, not so much. Passport America members can no longer stay in the spaces up front, now we are crammed up in the back. They charge more than posted on the PA website, for "the governor." The WiFi is off and on. The power is off and on. Cars speed through the place, I swear one went by my site doing at least 30 mph. I'll be staying at a different campground from now on.
The term "resort" does not apply to this little campground. It's not a resort at all, it's 15 back in sites in the owner's yard. It's a nice little place, with way too many fire ants. The electric receptacles don't have a breaker at the box so you have to plug into live electric. The side yard is under siege by feral pigs, and they are excavating it. It's almost 5 miles off 98/27 so not very convenient for an overnight. The owner is nice enough. The main objection to the place is it's simply overpriced. $35.00 is about 15.00 too high.
This might be my favorite campground anywhere. It's casual, right smack on the beach, and has the nicest people working and staying here. The wi-fi is excellent, too. Walk out on the fishing pier and watch the porpoises and the sea birds. You can walk your dogs on the beach (please pick up after them). It's just a great place to stay.
I always stay here on my way through Alabama. The people are very nice, the sites are big and roomy. You have to pay for Wi-Fi so I used my Verizon phone to get online. The ducks are fun to watch. Great spot for walking dogs. I suggest you park away from the exit road, many people live there, and work in the area, and they were driving out at 6:30 AM. Very noisy.
This is a true resort. It has a beautiful fishing lake complete with swans, big nice sites with concrete pads, a pool, a dog park. The Wi-Fi was excellent. The grounds were immaculate. The previous reviewers, who gave it a bad review, did so because it's in the middle of nowhere. That shouldn't reflect on the resort. It's a top drawer place. Now, the downside for me. The price is the Passport America price. If you have PA you cannot have a pull through or a lake front site unless you pay full price. Meanwhile, since it was Sunday there were plenty of both pull-throughs and lake front sites sitting empty so I don't really understand their thinking. It made me feel unwelcome, and I never feel that in other PA campgrounds. Also, they charge 2.00 an hour if you arrive before 2:00 PM. In 11 years of fulltiming, that was a first. There are two bad sites in the whole campground, and with lots of empty nice sites, the woman put me in one of the two. I don't know if they make PA members use them deliberately. Again, the place is a 10, but I think the owner might want to rethink some of their policies.
This is a great little campground, right off the highway. Lots of places to walk dogs, the place is immaculate. There are people living there full time, but their sites are not all crapped up with stuff. The owner accidentally didn't give me enough change, and 10 minutes after I checked in he was at my door giving me more. I would like to stay there again.
This Passport America park is really very nice. Full hook ups, good Wi-Fi, satellite reception. The managers are super. I stayed here a year ago, and if I'm coming through next year I'll stay again, assuming its still PA. I wouldn't pay full price.
The manager's wife was very nice. The price reflects Passport America. I would not stay there for $28.00 but it was okay at half price for one night. The concrete pads were ridiculously narrow, when parked you will step down on to grass. The slabs are long so two RVs can be butt to butt, however the one in front will be slanted downhill. Nice grass area to walk dogs. No trees so satellite works. Good WiFi.
I wish I could live in this campground I loved it so much. I went for 3 days and stayed 6. The employees couldn't have been nicer, and they keep it pristine. There's a little off leash dog park. The WiFi is excellent. The location is easy to get to downtown. The spaces are wide and long and landscaped so they are private. Lots of trees but still sites where rooftop satellites get a signal. I hated to leave!
This is a very nice little park. The WiFi was excellent, the people were very nice. The $12.00 rate is PPA, they require a two night stay when using PPA, which was fine. They are on a dead end road so it's quiet and great for walking dogs. One thing, you have to unhook, the spaces are all wide but short so there's no way you could leave a tow vehicle, or a toad, hooked up.
I love this campground, it's a little oasis in the city. I got an open spot because my satellite is on the roof, most of the sites are treed. The Wi-Fi worked fine. The nice people lead you to the site. There's a great place to walk dogs across the road. I have stayed here before and will stay again. The rate is PPA.
I stayed here for three nights and have no complaints. The lady at check in was very nice. The full hookup sites were nice. There were no long-term shabby tenants. The place was mowed, and there were lots of places to walk the dogs. Verizon had good signal. No noise from the interstate. I would stay again.
This is a great little park, very inexpensive and nothing to complain about. The WiFi isn't free, but even if you pay for it, it's cheaper than other local campgrounds. I've stayed here before and I'll stay here again. The access to the loop makes everything in Lubbock nearby.
This is an odd little place, but I've stayed here before and would again. There were 3 permanents here, never saw any of them. Their trailers were nice. The WiFi worked. I can't really say anything bad about the place, it's just a little add-on to a motel.
This is a nice enough campground. The spaces are tight but I got an end spot so I didn't feel crowded. The whole thing is gravel. There are grass spots around the edges, but mostly it's just stones with hookups coming up out of the stones. I met the owner who told me he had a "dog yard" well, I wish I had seen it while he was there. It's not a yard, it's a pen no larger than a horse stall. Maybe a little Chihuahua would have fun in it, but that's it. It also had sand stickers so I wouldn't let any dog go inside it. The good news is, it was less than most KOAs and the wifi worked perfectly.
The nightly rate is actually $25.00, but they give you a discount card which makes it $20.00m then they had a buy two nights get the third free special. WOW!! This is a real "Resort" RV park. With room service even. The spaces are large, the staff friendly, the WiFi works, and no trees block the rooftop satellite. There's even an onsite restaurant. It's windy, but that's Amarillo. It is a bit west of town, past Cadillac Ranch. I would always stay here when I go to Amarillo.
This is the only Canon City campground that's in town. It's right on Rt 50, across from Wal-Mart. It used to be called RV Station, maybe it still is? All the other Canon City campgrounds are up the mountain, near Royal Gorge, about 12-14 miles from town. That's why I stayed in this one. It's not fancy, the biggest issue I had is one guy doesn't pick up after his dog so there was waste lining the place. I find that disgusting. Almost everyone here seem to be here for the long term, judging by all the stuff around their rigs. All the sites are pull throughs. But, everyone was nice enough. The gal who owns it lives elsewhere and you come, park and then call and she comes to collects the money. You have a choice of w/e/s or just w/e. Verizon worked for getting online, and it didn't up the hill where the other campgrounds are. The RV park sign says Wi-Fi, but I never picked up a signal. I would stay here again. I did see a few RVs drive through and leave, so it's not everyone's cup of tea.
The $16.00 is the Passport America rate. The price is right but I wouldn't stay here again if they paid me! Why? Goatheads. The whole place is overrun with goathead stickers, and they are horrible. If you plan to park and never leave your RV you'll be fine, but if you have dogs you really don't want to stay here. There is no place to walk, except the gravel road, that doesn't have them. I had to carry tweezers to walk the dogs so I could get them out of their feet and out of the bottom of my shoes. Also, the Wi-Fi really seems to just work if you drag your laptop into the office, it doesn't work at my site, nor another guy closer to the office. This would be a nice place, but the goathead stickers are out of control. They really hurt.
The $14 rate represents Passport America which is available for two nights: it's $28 after that. In 11 years of full-timing, I have never stayed where the owners were nicer. This is a very small park, right along the Arkansas River. They have RV sites, a motel, cabins and even horse accommodations. The sites are full hook up, and many are back-ins but very easy, not tight like some places. Couldn't get online with Verizon, but the Wi-Fi worked so that was fine. Right across the river, is the old main road, where you can walk for hours with spectacular mountain views. I planned to stay two nights and stayed for six. It's a short drive to Salida. One night they had a horse drawn wagon ride and the owners put on a brisket BBQ dinner and sang cowboy songs. It was really fun. If you want a resort, this may not be the place for you. But if you want a nice place to stay I couldn't recommend it more.
This is a no frills campground. The spaces are so tight you can't park the tow vehicle in your site but there were lots of empty sites so I parked the truck in one of them. They keep the grass around the edges nice, but there were tall dead weeds in the sites. I had clippers and cut mine down and tossed them away. The $20.00 rate is for electric only, water would have been $5.00 more. All that said, it's in a great location for Longmont, Boulder, Loveland Eastes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park. I ended up staying for 10 days. There's also a nice dog park along side the airport, a very short drive away. Also, the lady who was the camp host was lovely.
A couple of things: be careful coming to this nice new park because there's an old run down park on the way with almost the same name. I think it's Lake View. I pulled in to it and just thought this can't be right, so I called and found out I had to go another 1/2 mile down the road to find the correct place. The park has no charm. You park on gravel, and that's all there is: gravel. There's a grass strip in the middle and around the edges. Oddly, they have the sites angled where most RVs won't have a view of the lake which is north of the campground. I think most RVs have the view on the street side which in this park was looking south. It was fine staying there, but for what it is I think it's overpriced.
The Passport America price. This place is great fun. Lots of animals to enjoy: buffalo, camels, horses, ponies, a baby mule and baby horses. Horseback riding. There's a great gift shop with exceptionally nice girls working the counter. There's quite a nice restaurant. I hope to stay here again, I wish the PA rate was for more than one night.
I liked this park. It was very clean, the owners were nice. The spaces were tight, but its not claiming to be a resort. It's easy on, easy off the highway. There's a large field above it, where your dogs can play. I would definitely stay here again.
This park is everything I want a park to be. Super nice owners, easy on and off the highway, but no highway noise. Wi-Fi. The cleanest nicest laundry ever. I would stay here again in a minute. My price was for water and 20 amp back-in.
I spent a week here last summer, and was greeted this year like an old friend. The staff is lovely, the owner is super. The WiFi was great. There's terrific shopping nearby. I only spent one night this year because I was in a hurry to get north, but hope to spend a week again next summer. There's nothing not to like about this campground.
I really like this place. It's huge, has lots of green space, and nice employees. The down side is there's no sewer hookups, people run back and forth with blue boys behind their golf carts. My Verizon cell-phone worked fine for getting online.
Very nice campground. Easy on and off I-90. There's also a motel, restaurant, shops, it's a huge complex. The WiFi works well, the office staff was lovely. I have the air on, so no traffic noise from I-90, I have a view of a lake across the interstate. There are things to do nearby. The price reflects the Good Sam discount, and a 30 amp site. Both my Verizon and my Sprint phones work.
This place is downright scary. I had no bad experiences here, but the cast of characters left much to be desired. The parking in the sites is troublesome too. I came here because the KOA that sits between I-90 and a truck stop, wanted $44.00 for a spot. I'll never stay in Sioux Falls again.
This is a terrific campground. The hosts are nice. All sites are full hookups, you have a choice of shade or open. There is free wifi. People can have campfires. I called before I came and they have a storm cellar and they said I could bring the dogs in if necessary. There's nothing not to like about this campground.
This campground is really beautiful. That said, it's really expensive. You pay $10.00 to get into the park, then some sites are $50.00. I have PPA, and stayed one night on the O-loop so it was $18.50 (half price with PPA). I did ask for a site for the satellite and it worked here. My cellphones work too. The WiFi signal is excellent, but oddly quite slow at times. I doubt I'll stay here again, just because of the price. I stayed here to take my diesel truck to Lead Foot in Loganville: they are great if you have a diesel that needs repair.
This is a real old Florida-type place. The people who run it couldn't be nicer, the place is charming. Interesting paint colors on the buildings and pictures painted on the walls. The spaces are small and tight, but many back right up to the Gulf and have little decks where you can sit out over the water and watch the amazing sunsets. Cedar Key has very little to do, the nearest Wal-Mart shopping is 1/2 hour away, yet it's a place you want to be. I made my reservations for next year before I left.
This park is enormous! You drive five or ten minutes to get to the campsites off US 1. The people at the entrance gate couldn't be nicer. I was able to get Internet using Verizon, at my site, and get a satellite signal. I really enjoyed it there, and look forward to my next visit.
The previous horrible review was 2 years ago. This campground is under new ownership and they are working hard to make it nice. I asked for an open site for my roof top satellite and they were very accommodating. My Verizon phone worked to get on line with a strong EVDO signal. It's right along 98, so not searching for it. No road noise. There were quite a few full time residents, but all were very nice, quiet and respectful. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
I really love this campground. The views are spectacular, watched dolphins cavorting in the water yesterday. Watched a guy cleaning a huge trout. The wifi is fast, my Verizon phone gets a signal. Satellite get a signal. The main thing I like so much is all the campers here are super friendly. You can't walk from one end to the other without getting in multiple conversations. I'd give it a 10 except I had to disconnect my tow vehicle.
The rate was actually 12.50, Passport America rate. The campground looks a little rough, many trailers belong to full time residents and there's a single wide park behind. When I arrived a few little dogs were running around loose, but I never was bothered by them when walking my dogs. I spoke to some residents and they were all quite nice, many seem down on their luck. Verizon worked fine to get online and I got a satellite signal. It's easy on and off 77, but I didn't notice any traffic noise.
I would have given this place a 9 except for one problem. The noise. At night I ran my a/c fan on high to drown out the trucks and trains. The people were so nice. The lady who checked me in was lovely and this morning a man, who works there, came over to see if he could help me hook up. I walked the dogs around and everyone was nice. We saw a herd of 15 little deer. The wi-fi worked, and I parked in overflow and got my satellite signal in just fine. I would definitely stay there again.
The park was okay, easy check in, a lady escorted me to my site. Some interesting residents. I'm really upset that the Coast to Coast rate is 25.00, the regular rate is 28.00! I also have PPA but couldn't use it on the weekend, although they were no where near full.
The $9.00 a night rate was my half price with the senior pass; regular rate is 18.00. This place is worth the 18.00; it's just lovely. The camp hosts couldn't have been nicer. I like the fact that there's a security gate, since I was almost alone there on Sunday night. There is no swimming beach; the other COE campground has a swim beach. My site backed up to the lake and had no trees blocking the satellite. My Verizon phone got me online with my laptop. I saw a whole herd of little deer and a Jack Rabbit in the campground. I loved it there; if I didn't have to keep going I would have stayed the full two weeks.
This could be a great park. The lady who runs it is as nice as anyone I've met in 10 years of full timing. The sites are large; it's easy on and off the freeway if you understand how I-35 works. The wifi never worked for me; it was intermittent but not an issue since I have Verizon internet. The main thing was the farmer next door sets off what sounds like a cannon every 1/2 hour or so this time of year. You can't really hear it inside with the a/c on, but outside walking the dogs it was heart clenching. No trees blocking the satellite. The rate was Passport America, and frankly I think they should allow more than one night to compensate for the cannon. I don't think it's a 25.00 a night park with that noise.
I can't find anything wrong with this campground. The lady in the office was lovely. The site was great, long and wide. The wifi was fast. My rooftop satellite got a signal. The other campers were friendly. There were three individual little dog runs, where they could be loose and play which is much appreciated. The place was clean, mowed, just a really great place. If I wanted to spend a month or more I would be happy here.
This is the perfect campground. From the lovely people in the office, to the excellent Wi-Fi, the spacious sites: it's near everything. Easy to get to Dallas or Ft. Worth. Super Target around the corner. If I could change anything it would be more room for dog walking, but other than that it's a great place to stay!
This campground is at the intersection of I-35 and route 60. It's no frills. The lady who owns it is very nice. The people live there and their three big dogs have the run of the place so watch where you step. That said, the dogs were friendly and I had no problems with them when walking my three big dogs (I do pick up). There's a Cemex truck stop next door. I got a Wi-Fi signal from the motel across the street. The campground doesn't offer it. It's mostly full time residents, the first row closest to the truck stop had the only available sites, all pull thrus, and I don't think those sites had any sewers. I would definitely stay here again if traveling I-35.
This is a lovely campground run by really nice people. It's mostly wooded but I found a break in the trees for my satellite. Unfortunately the Wi-Fi only reaches the rigs parked closest to the office, but my Verizon cellphone worked fine to get online. I would definitely stay here again if I was in the Ames area.
I really liked this park, it's right on the river across from the casino riverboat. The riverfront sites are just W/E but that was fine. I went to stay for 2 days and ended up there for a week. The gals in the office were wonderful. Lots of nice campers, many seasonal. I didn't enjoy it so much on the weekend though, it was packed and it seemed everyone who was there in a camper had lots of friends come for the day/evening. Kids running around screaming on the weekend too... it just was much more pleasant during the week. Good satellite signal and Verizon for internet. The Wi-Fi was very spotty.
The people who work here are very nice. The place is enormous, I never even saw all of it. Lots of kids whizzing around on bicycles. Lots of geese and ducks at the lake, lots of droppings where they hang out. The Coast to Coast sites are open so no problem getting satellite. Wi-Fi was spotty. There's a Super Target just down the street which is handy, also a Home Depot. I will stay here again.
This is very nice, the staff was lovely on check in. A nice man brought me to my site. I like the no frills aspect, no pool no playground. The Wi-Fi is strong. It's within a mile of the little town, but tucked away in a very quiet area. The laundry is spotless and very inexpensive. If I could change anything I would have them fence in part of the huge unused grass area so we could let our dogs run and get some exercise.
I walked into the office and said I have Passport America... the wife took my card and the husband snarled that he was going to drop PA. I asked why and he proceeded to whine and gripe about all the PA members whining and griping to him. He said he didn't make any money off them. I asked why not since I was paying him 15.00 and would probably use $1.00 worth of electric. (I didn't need heat or air) The wife then asked me for 18.00. I asked if they raised their prices because it says 15.00 in the book she said the extra is for electricity. I said oh, it says the extra is only for heat and air. She grabbed a page she printed out and I was right... she charged me the 18.00 anyway. I never lost my temper, never even argued... but the guy was funny telling me that people were a pain... he was the pain. I should have just left but it was rainy and I just wanted to settle in someplace. I drove around back... it's not worth any more than 18.00 without the discount. It's just parking and hook ups, not really a campground at all. It is convenient to a grocery store, laundromat & downtown though. In 10 years of fulltiming, this experience was a first!
I read the previous review and I saw no dogs running loose, no dogs off leash and nobody not picking up after their dogs. This place is great. Full hookups at every site, excellent Wi-Fi reception, cheaper rates during the week. An RV service center next door. Shuttles to the casino so you don't have to drive over and walk from the parking lot. Very nice people in the office. Security. I could spend a summer here happily.
This is a very old campground, in excellent repair. The problem is, it was apparently built when cars were pulling canned ham size trailers. You really need to be able to thread a needle backing into one of their sites. Not only are the sites very narrow but the roads leave too little swing room for the truck. That said, it's in a great location near Minocqua, it's dog friendly and my Verizon phone got online. I was not able to get satellite because of the trees. There were a very few sites, pull throughs that might have gotten a signal. If you have a big rig, I suggest you make a reservation and get a pull through anyway. The employees were all lovely.
I loved this campground. It's lake front, my Verizon phone worked well (I got online with it) and my satellite TV worked. The spaces are very large, no crowding. It's dog friendly too. I could spend a summer here, it was really nice. I only gave it a 9 because you need to use the water in your tank as there are no water hook ups. There is an artesian well, where you can fill up jugs, for drinking, and it's wonderful water. There are seasonal campers and transients, all very nice. I highly recommend staying here. It has a good proximity to Bayfield, and the Madeline Island ferry.
I just spent a week here. The work camper "host" was very accommodating helping me find a site where trees didn't block my rooftop satellite. They have a strange reservation system, where people reserve sites on line instead of giving them a site when they arrive dependent on their needs. I arrived on a Monday for a week, and couldn't have an open site because someone had booked it on line for the following Saturday night. Fortunately someone canceled another site and I got it. A better site so I was happy. Everyone was very nice. The lake is beautiful, the fish were jumping and some were huge. I would definitely stay here again.
I don't understand why I'm the first to review this park. It's almost 500 acres, has a huge lake, golf, swimming, boating, fishing. It's simply wonderful. From the lovely employees at the gatehouse, to security, and the other campers. It's so large many campers have golf carts to get around. One night "Elvis" was there and gave a show. There's not much to do around town, not even a super Walmart but the campground has so much to do there's no need to leave.
I stay here every year, just an overnight. I like the manager, it's dog friendly and I feel safe. It's not fancy, but it is convenient. There was a bit of a problem with the power but the manager called an electrician immediately and the guy in a 2 a/c motorhome admitted to running both a/cs on 30 amp when 50 amp was available (???) So, not the park's fault. It was fixed very quickly.
I stay here twice a year, on my way north and back to Florida. It's a really nice big park, lots of room to walk the dogs. The Wi-Fi is great... lots of choices where to park. Out in the open or in trees. I will continue to stay there.
I think this is one of the nicest parks anywhere. It's always neat and clean, I stayed here last year too, and the people are very nice. If I lived in Atlanta I would leave my trailer here and use it as my weekend getaway.
I was exhausted when I pulled in here. The lady at the desk was nice, and accommodated my request for an open site so my rooftop satellite would get a signal. A nice man led me to the site, and offered to help me level the trailer. I declined. It's not fancy, but as a woman traveling alone I had no qualms about being here and would stay here again in a New York minute.
Gorgeous campground. Flat concrete sites, lovely people working the office. Dog friendly. Wi-fi. No trees blocking my satellite dish. Great midway location. Camping on the ocean or the sound where the sunsets are breathtaking. The only thing that I hated was all the "sticker paws" those nasty sand spurs that stick into dogs' feet. I've stayed here before and will stay here again I hope.
I really loved this campground. The lakes were beautiful and I was backed right up lakeside. It's a beautiful place and the manager was very nice and obviously interested in making sure you enjoyed your stay. Unfortunately the wifi was down, a lightning hit, but it may be repaired by now. Excellent cellphone service. This is a beautiful campground I can't imagine anyone not liking it.
The road in and out is terrible, really rocked the rig. It's Passport America which is appreciated. Many camp sites are on a hill, it took 4 Lynx Levelers under each of the two tires on the low side to make the trailer level. The sites are very tight. The lake is nice saw some people fishing. I debated staying two nights, but left after one.
The owners of this Passport America park are lovely. I came for one night and decided to stay for two more but didn't have cash. No problem, I went out for the day and came back with it. The wifi is strong. There is good cell and satellite TV reception. The sites are large and level. It's not a destination resort, but certainly a good place to stop for a few days. There are some permanents here, but it's not scummy. The owners have been working hard for three years to make it nice, and they have succeeded. I would stay here again.
The owners of this Passport America park are very nice, and quick to respond to a problem. My only problem was I needed a hammer to open my truck cap handle which jammed. One reason I really like this park is they have a fenced area where dogs can run and play, off leash, while I sit on a comfortable bench. I also really enjoy having Wi-Fi and seek out parks that offer it. I've stayed there before and I'll stay again. It is near I-10 but with the a/c running I couldn't hear any traffic noise.
I really like Amy's. The lady who owns it is lovely. The office is messy but so what? I stay in my trailer not the office. The owner always makes sure I have an open spot for my satellite dish to get a signal. It's noisy near the road.
