This park is a mix of good and bad. I stayed here 6 nights and some staff are friendly and helpful, but others are not. Most sites are gravel and dirt and all interior roads are dirt. They have about 6 sites with concrete pads. The place is a dust bowl when its windy, and it's windy most of the time in Kansas. Be prepared to keep your windows closed and the AC on. Sites are level and big rig friendly. All hookups and cable TV worked well. Wi-Fi was not good. It was so slow. It was basically useless. Park is right off the interstate so there is road noise. OK for a quick overnight stay, but not one of my favorite places.

What a shame, such a nice park and it's not maintained. There is no grass, just loads of thorny weeds and dirt. The weeds aren't even mowed and some were over 2 feet high. There is no shade or trees and no Wi-Fi. On the plus side, the hookups are good and the concrete pads are nice. The park is easy to navigate and big rig friendly. The whole park is satellite TV friendly with nothing to obstruct the signal. I also got over 20 stations with my antenna. Cell phone and Verizon air card work well here. They have a park host, but I was told they are usually not here. We never saw them at their camp site. What good is a park host that's not there? I made a reservation and paid via phone. When I got to the base, they had no record of my reservation. Took about 45 minutes to sort out. I would give them a higher rating if they just had someone to look after the park and maybe clean the restrooms and mow the weeds. The place has potential, but at present it's badly neglected. When entering the base come in the commercial gate which is at the corner of Mississippi and Aspen streets. When you approach the gate, take the RIGHT lane. They had an RV try to take the left lane, but it's too narrow for all but the smallest rig. This guy got wedged between the concrete barriers.

I would rather stay at a Walmart and use the money to run my generator than stay in this place. It's just a bare field with some hookups. If you just absolutely have to have electricity for one night, I guess it would be alright, otherwise find somewhere else. I can't believe someone else gave it a 10 rating.

First the good, the sites are shady, the cable TV works very well, hookups are satisfactory and seem in fairly good repair, easy to maneuver a big rig on interior roads, conveniently located right off the interstate and Verizon phone and data card worked well. Now for the not so good, the Wi-Fi was sporadic at best, road noise from the interstate was loud, when the wind blows there is a lot of dust (the wind blows often in Kansas). As far as the staff goes, some are friendly and helpful, others are not, it depends on who's working at the time. I stayed here a week and had a mixed experience with them. I would rate this campground as just average, not horrible but not great.

The price is right, and for an overnight or short stay in the Augusta area, it's fine. It really depends on which site you get. Sites 39 to 43 are very nice. Others are just OK. Interior roads are sand. Voltage was good and water pressure was fine. Wi-Fi worked well in my site which was pretty far from the office. No cable TV, some sites are satellite friendly, others are not. I didn't see any showers or bathrooms. Lots of semi-permanent rigs and some mobile homes, but everything seemed fairly tidy.

Nice campground. Maneuvering in a 40 ft motor home towing a car was no problem. Sites are roomy and level. Wi-Fi worked well and most sites were satellite TV friendly. Verizon air card also worked well. Hookups were conveniently placed and the power voltage and water pressure were good. I did not use the bathrooms or showers, but the laundry facility was very nice. Office staff was very friendly. Price was reasonable too, my rate reflects the Good Sam discount. Excellent option if you are visiting the area and although it's located in Lexington, it's very close to the Columbia SC metro area. I would stay here again if in the area.

I was just passing through and looking for a place to spend the night. As an RV park, this place is average. Pros: the huge number of sites, most back in but some pull through, some shady some sunny, some level some not. Cons: the check in process is odd. You check in at the camp store, but there is really no place to park a big rig and complete the check in process. You have to block the parking lot to park. Once checked in, you're on your own to find your site. I stayed in what they call the "primitive section" which means it has 50 amp electric, but no water hookups. However, there were some water faucets scattered around. There were not really any marked sites, it was more like a big grassy area with trees along the edge. Electric hookups were scattered around and you just pulled up to one, by driving over the grass, stopped and hooked up. Had the ground been soft, it would of been a problem driving across the grass. But it hadn't rained for weeks and the ground was like concrete. For an overnight stopover, its just ok. If you love horses, you'll be in heaven. To me, horses are like cows, they all pretty much look alike and they smell bad.

Right off the interstate, however finding your spot after dark can be challenging. Campground is poorly lit and the layout is confusing. Young lady manning the fuel desk where you check in was indifferent at best. Seemed to view campers as a bother and offered no help when we had difficulty finding our site. If you arrive during daylight hours there should be no problem. Pull through sites at the bottom of campground and are the least desirable. They have no shade, are fairly close together, and are right next to the truck parking area. They are fairly level and plenty long for big rigs with nothing to obstruct satellite television reception. The back in sites farther up the hill seemed nicer. Bathroom and shower facilities were reasonably clean, although I've seen better. Good signal from Verizon air card and good cell reception in this campground. We noticed a weak Wi-Fi signal but didn't try using it. All hookups were good and power voltage was strong. No swimming pool or other extras in the campground, however it is fine for a short stay or in you need to be in the Lexington area. Daily rate is high for what you get, however the monthly rate is very reasonable.

Very clean well maintained campground. Owners very friendly and helpful. Sites are level gravel and include a concrete patio and fire ring. Interior roads are paved. Although there is a steep hill to climb when entering the park, it was no problem. Very good access for big rigs and close to Interstate 81. We noted how well lit the entrance was which made it easy for our late night arrival. Wi-Fi was at times unreliable. Part of the time it worked fine, other times it seemed stuck or overloaded. There was some vehicle noise from a nearby roadway, but it wasn't too much of a problem. Verizon cell phone worked well on the Verizon extended network. I thought the price was a bit high, but it seems in line with other campgrounds in the area. I would stay here again.

If visiting Mammoth Cave this park is perfect. Easy access off the interstate and close to the park entrance. Big rig friendly with easy access within the park. Nice large sites with plenty of room between camp sites. Excellent power, water and sewer hookups. Our Verizon air card worked well so we didn't use the campground Wi-Fi service. The bath and shower facilities were excellent and so clean, you could perform surgery with no fear of infection. Absolutely the cleanest I've ever seen. Owners were helpful too. We checked out several other campgrounds in the area and this one is by far the best.

What a great idea, I wish there were more places like this! This is not a campground, rather, it's a reasonably priced overnight stop that has full hookups. Very easy access for big rigs and located right off the interstate. Although the 6 lanes were close together, one can extend slides if you position your unit carefully. No room for awnings, but again, this is an overnight stop not a campground. RV fuel pumps were available and the restrooms inside were clean. We enjoyed gazing at the miles of beautiful corn fields as far as the eye can see in every direction. We had no problem with noise, in fact, it was very quiet. I would suggest sleeping with your Air conditioner on and windows closed in case someone pulls in next door during the night. For $20 this is a great value and we will stay again if passing through the area.

For the money, this campground is ok. It has easy access from the interstate highway. Good electric power and water pressure. Verizon air card worked well here for internet access. Owner was nice and escorted us to our site. Site was gravel and level. Roads were dirt and gravel and dust was an issue. Many in the campground seemed to be permanent residents. Access for a big rig was somewhat tight getting in and out of the park due to trees. Be careful and use a spotter and you should have no trouble. I would give this park a higher rating if not for the substandard bath and shower facilities. Also, we had hoped to do laundry, but they had only one washing machine and the permanent residents had them locked up. I'd rate this park acceptable for a one night stay if passing through the area, but I wouldn't want to stay much longer.

First the good. This campground location is great, has a very remote feeling with nice views. Access is off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Now for the bad. Access is marginal for big rigs, not all sites are level, bathroom facilities are very marginal and dirty, and they charge extra for Wi-Fi service. The price of $45 per night is way too high for what you get. There are better options in the area for less money. We will not return.

There are actually two parks, the beautiful 66 site park with full hookups, level concrete pads, and excellent shower and laundry facilities. There is also a rally park nearby which does not have 50 amp service. I'm reviewing the newer 66 site park. It is very big rig friendly with easy access. Spotless and well manicured grounds, excellent restroom and shower facility, and top quality hookups including cable. The down side is a lack of shade, swimming pool, or any sort of activities. It's a great place to stay while exploring area attractions, but don't expect to be entertained while in the park. All sites are back in, but huge and well spaced. Up the hill is the bath house with laundry, Tom Johnson RV service center, camping store, and RV show room. There are lots of shopping and eating possibilities near by in the Marion area. Verizon cell and data cards work well here.

Nice campground. Lots of seasonal units with no owners present for our stay. Sites are large and level. Great hookups with plenty of cable TV stations. Looks like satellite dishes would work in most sites. Sites and roads are fine gravel. Road leading to entrance had some low branches which hit the top of our unit, but once in the campground roads were wide and it was easy to handle our 40 ft coach with a trailer. Most sites are back in, but they did have 3 pull through spots that were VERY long, at least 100 feet in length. We didn't use the bathroom or shower facilities although I did walk in and it appeared to be clean. Trash can only be deposited in a dumpster at the office, which is a long walk from some camp sites. Also, the dumpster was overflowing with garbage when we were here. Verizon air card worked with somewhat weak signal strength. Verizon cell service was ok. No AT&T cell or data signal. Park had nice landscaping and was well kept. I had limited interaction with the staff, but the lady that checked us in was nice. Arriving after dark is no problem, campground is well lit and it was easy to find our spot. Some kind of flying bugs which were everywhere made sitting outside in the evening miserable.

Beautiful campground. Large sites well spaced. Most had a view of the lake, even those not right on the water. Excellent hookups and easy to maneuver a big rig. Some sites will allow for satellite TV reception. Verizon air card had full signal and worked well. Cell phone service was excellent too. Road into park has a section with steep switchbacks, I had no problem in a 40 foot coach pulling a trailer, but others complained of difficulty. There is another way into the park that isn't as steep, call ahead for directions if this concerns you.

If you are a fisherman, this place is paradise. Right on the White river. Hook ups were of good quality. Some of the roadways are blacktop, but all sights are pea gravel and level. My site was barely long enough to accommodate my 39 ft motor home and 16 foot trailer. For big rigs the park is a bit tight to maneuver in. However, once in your site, there is plenty of room to extend slides and awnings. I would not advise arriving after dark if you haven't been there before, especially if driving a big rig. Verizon air card worked great with a full signal. Cell service was excellent. Owners were very nice.

I have adjusted my rating upward since my last visit last year. Previously, you had to drive down a dusty dirt road for about a quarter mile to get to the entrance. The road has recently been paved. The entrance and interior roads are still gravel, but they are smooth and access is good for big rigs. Good power, water, and cable TV. I chose a site without sewer, but the sewer hookups at other sites looked to be in acceptable condition. The wireless internet worked well for me. Shade trees might interfere with satellite TV reception, although the cable TV has a good selection of stations. There is a nice duck pond and you can buy food to feed them or bring your own. The small swimming pool looked well cared for. Park is near the interstate, but I didn't hear the noise inside my rig with the air conditioner running. Choose a site away from the highway side of the park if noise is an issue with you. Overall the park seemed to be in better condition than last year. There were a handful of permanent rigs, but they were neat and tidy. Owners are friendly and helpful. The rate was very reasonable and reflected the KOA card discount.

Nice campground with roomy level sites. Power and water hookups were excellent and well placed. Good location too right in the Denver Metro area. Very quiet at night; I slept with my windows open and didn't hear a peep. However, there are a couple of negatives. For a state park, the price is high. At first the rate seems quite reasonable; then you discover that in addition to the campground fee, you must pay $8.00 per day per vehicle, and your motorhome counts as a vehicle. If you tow a car behind a motorhome count on spending an extra $16 per day for passes. If anyone comes to visit you, they must also pay the $8. The other negative is that if you camp there during peak times, and leave the park for any reason, they might not let you re-enter. That's because when they feel the park is at capacity they close the gates and won't let anyone else enter until the crowds thin out. There is a sign warning of this as you leave the campground.

This campground is next to the brand new service center. The camp is spotless and well cared for. Excellent hookups with good quality 50 amp power, water, and sewer hookups. Wireless internet was not available at my site but works well up at the service center lounge area. The lounge is open during normal business hours and also has a restaurant that serves breakfast and lunch. Food was reasonable and pretty good. The bathrooms and showers were spotless. Brand new coin operated washers and dryers are also available. If you plan on arriving after 6pm, call ahead because the gates close and you will need an access code to open them for after hours arrivals. Campsites are level and well spaced. Easy access with plenty of room to maneuver for big rigs. Sites near the river have trees to provide shade; other sites are in the open. Campground is surrounded by tree covered hills which provides a nice view. The $27 rate reflects a 10% Good Sam discount. Strong signal for both my Verizon cell phone and internet air card.

This place is the best. Level roomy sites, easy access for big rigs. Excellent cable TV with lots of stations. Wi-Fi was free and worked well for me, although other campers complained the signal was weak. Hookups were well placed and maintained. Nice looking pool and a game room for the kids. Streets and sites are gravel, but well maintained and smooth. Nice patio at each site. Price was reasonable and the staff was nice, but not overly friendly. In my opinion, this is the best campground in the area.
