I do not understand the high ratings for this park -- they must be from people who have yearly lease sites or are fortunate enough to pull into one of the few "nicer" sites available. This is, by far, the worst Thousand Trails, if not the worst park I have ever stayed in: It is slim pickins' for even a passable site; the roads are narrow and steep with tight turns and one-way much of the way; sites are narrow, small, and unlevel; we can't put out the awning and once the slides are out, there is absolutely no room to place chairs to sit outside; the picnic table is at the back of the site on a slope and resting next to the road and neighboring site; the fire pit went under the RV once we parked; to park our truck so it doesn't hinder traffic ends up blocking any path to the RV (we have to crawl around and through bushes to get to the RV door); there is no sewer hook-up as most sewer sites (and nicer sites) are taken by yearly leases; the water pressure is nonexistent and we have to turn on the pump to flush the toilet; the power fluctuates so badly that we have to run the fridge on gas and the microwave won't even heat water; walking the dog in any open area is a mine field of stickers; low hanging trees block the use of our roof-mounted satellite dish for TV; there is no cell phone coverage; the closest restroom has a sign that says "continued vandalism will result in the restroom closing" leaving the occupants of this area (all without sewer hook-ups) without any facilities. I guess if I had a rig set-up for boondocking this park would be passable, but I don't so the lack of even the smallest pleasure like being able to sit outside my RV makes this Thousand Trails' stay absolutely the worst ever. Can I say anything nice about this park? Oh, yeah. . . the beach is within walking distance (big whoop-ti-do!). Regarding the checked items for facilities available: Out of 350 sites, only 42 have full hookups so saying that sewer is available is more like a lottery winning. And where is there 50 amp service in this park let alone consistent power? We're certainly not experiencing it!

Not many positives about this 1000 Trails Preserve. One of the rangers should retire, quit, or get fired, very grumpy old man. Only limited sewers available in the A section which is assigned by the rangers because they are so small. Most rigs overlapped each other by about 5 feet in the rear. Sewer could only be dumped on even or odd days and if you left the sewer line down you would be in trouble. Large open sites in non sewer section were very adequate, but full of sticker burrs. Could use some weed killer to get rid of these. The park is constantly watering, however they charge you for washing truck or trailer, rip off. They also charge $5.00 to receive a UPS or Fed Ex package. Ranger said that was company wide: WRONG, we have stayed about 150 days in 1000 Trails this year and it is not a Company policy. What is Co policy is that each park may do what they must to increase revenue to keep the park open, so they nickel dime us to pieces. This park serves breakfast cooked in the back of their store: No thank you very much. This is deifinitely a rural park as it is in the middle of nowhere. Honey wagon service costs $15 and available twice a week. They have a dilapidated barn that used to house animals, now just an eyesore as it is not being kept up and a sign is posted that says keep out. Fishing is allowed and they will gladly sell you a fishing license and bait, what they don't tell you is that they feed the fish every morning. Not much fish being caught here. Also the lake is so cloudy, not sure if I would siwm in it, let alone eat anything out of it. All in all, not the best experience I have had at a 1000 Trails Preserve.

We stayed here three years ago: liked it then, like it now. Parallel pull through sites are great, with no problem getting in, or out with a 40 ft 5th wheel and long bed truck. Everything worked as stated above. Landscaping is very nice and it was a very soothing stay. Very pet friendly also. A relaxing pool or hot tub would have made it a 10. The setting is very serene being next to the Jedediah State Park with its tall Redwoods. Food at cafe across the street was very good. Personnel were very friendly and would definitely stay again.

It seems that 1000 Trails is on the downhill side of their existence. This could be a beautiful park if it was kept up. We selected an open site in the grass to receive satellite TV, which we did. Grass was about 6 inches tall and no one came by to mow in the two weeks we were here. Buildings are just short of dilapidated. Absolutely NO activities, no food facility, no pool, not much to do other than visit Yosemite. Many pot holes and during a rain, they even had to block off an entrance to our parking area as they did not prepare the surface properly and a large sinking mudhole appeared. Many other negative comments written by others still apply. It's run down and in need of repair and upgrading. Personnel were not the friendliest either. Their store, which is on the main hiway and far away from the park, is very expensive with their gas being the most expensive in the area. On the plus side, the price was right for 1000 Trails members. As a member park, I do not appreciate outsiders coming in and taking the nice spaces.

America's Best is name only. Sites VERY close together. Very uneven sites made it hard to level our 5th wheel. Sites also slope pretty bad. Was assured I would get satellite TV from my site. I guess the lady did not know there was a big tree in line of sight to the south. Not a good park for dogs as no place to walk them except up and down the interior roads. Personnel were very friendly and knowledgeable about area. Tickets for certain shows available at the office. Vehicle/RV wash rack available, albeit expensive and foam brush had severe kink in hose limiting foam. Could not get ABC on cable, bummer, missed the ALCS. I asked maintenance personnel to blow leaves from site and was told they would be back in two hours (leaves), the guy gave a lick and a promise with a blower. We would look for another park if in the area again, however, this park has easy access to freeway and close to major shopping.

A small but nice park. Sites close together. We were near a horse pasture and cemetery. Shutting down for season so not much going on. Probably one of the closest parks to downtown St. Louis but still a 25 mile drive. Easy freeway access but somewhat noisy because of this. We would stay here again.

A nice well kept Thousand Trails Park. Shutting down for season, park folks were somewhat distracted by this chore. Clean and roomy and would stay here again. Nice park for walking dog.

Nice wide open CG near Niagara Falls. Honey wagon available. Good exercise for dog. Back-ins were 90 degrees. Good interior roads. Getting ready to close for season so not much going on. Would stay here again if in the area.

Very nice owners/managers who are very helpful with directions and where to go and what to see. They work constantly to insure the CG is well kept. Interior roads are narrow but maneuverable. Our site (86) was large but we did experience some electrical problems. The owner replaced the entire breaker box within 30 minutes of our arrival. We booked 4 months early but could not get a 50 amp (bah) site. We were here over Labor Day and I think the locals got those sites. We initially had to run our hot-water heater on propane, but eventually the power problem was resolved. Our site was directly across from the pool and rec hall so was a tad noisy, but it was a good noise, kids playing and everyone was settled down before night quiet hours. All wooded sites so no satellite TV but they have very good cable TV. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again in the future. Many small towns around here make this a very interesting place. I don't think you could get closer to Boston than here.

Close to Washington DC is the only good thing I can report about this park. Sites uneven and large rock made for difficult walking around site. Very outdated buildings. However, base had three golf courses. Rank has it's privileges. Park is in various stages of disrepair. Camp host is doing his best to keep the park going but the word is that no money will be spent on the park. This was very disappointing as this could be a great benefit to retired folks visiting the area. Would look for another campground in the area next time.

Very disappointed with this KOA. First, water pressure was between 20 & 40 psi at the spigots. Not enough to take a shower in our rig. Had to fill fresh water tank and use our auxiliary pump to shower. When inquired about the maintenance department said I had something wrong with my rig. They did not know the difference between water flow and water pressure. Nothing wrong with my trailer water system. All I got was lip service from management, many folks were complaining about water. Second: Cable TV was not really cable, simply sat TV fed to sites by cable. I had about 7 channels that I could barely see. Had to resort to using DVD exclusively. Third: No control of kids throughout the park. Kids running everywhere, in and out of sites and in front of moving vehicles. Much unneeded underbrush contributing to an abundance of mosquitoes. On the positive side the dog walking service was great as was the tour of NYC, albeit a little costly, $99. per person, a good tour nonetheless. Carol was very nice.

As others have mentioned, this is one of the better 1000 Trails Preserves in the system. We THOROUGHLY enjoyed our stay here and are looking forward to coming back. Power and water were outstanding, sat TV available from some sites., some shaded sites and some in the sun. Nice folks and great activities including a luau and Polynesian dancers. Management is top notch and very friendly and accessible. Two nice pickle ball courts being used every day. One slight drawback is the number of Canadian Geese in the park, but not sure what can be done about them.

A nice laid back (re: No activities) caretaker park. We stayed two weeks hoping to play some pickleball but no one wanted to do anything. Flooding seemed to be a problem as much rain arrived while we were there. Fairly close to many local sites, (within about 20 miles). New section for 50 amp power still being worked on but available for use. Many of these sites need more gravel and leveling. Sat TV is possible thru the trees. More fun was being had by staff than by members. This could be a great park with some activity. Many peranent or long term sites taken and these people seem to be living there instead of RV'ing. We would return, if only for a short period. We did enjoy the solitude of a fairly private site. Perhaps a little later in the season woud offer different results.

Very peaceful and nice park. Narrow interior roads but passable. Nice folks. We had to make several circles within the park to line up for the dump station on the way out. We have a 39ft 5th wheel. Cable TV was somewhat fuzzy but usable and nice since we could not use sat TV for all the trees. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again, although not long term due to no sewers. Nice large lots situated as pull thrus parallel to roads.

I haven't given many 10's since starting reviewing parks but this is one of them. Nice treed site (103) and can even get rooftop sat TV thru the trees. Not just a CG but a real park. GREAT Dog area (off leash) and two beaches for the bowsers, ours loved it. Not far from downtown but yet feels like the country. Many trails, water park for kids, climbing wall, interpretive program, propane on site (albeit costly). Beautiful landscaping, 24 hour security and locked gate. We would definitely stay here again & again. Charleston should really be proud of this park.

This park has spots for everyone, large, small, open, in the trees, or completely secluded. Grass, concrete or dirt. We had a nice site with a pasture behind us. Many things to do here including pickleball. Personnel were nice and professional. Nice clubhouse and retail store. My only drawback is that people, especially those in golf carts, including park employees, do not observe the 5 mph speed limit. With two pools and a hot tub the sunning was great. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again.

Park appears to be For Sale, Very rundown, low voltage power. Laundry all but defunct. Would not step foot in restrooms, let alone use them. No windbreaks makes a very windy park. Could barely see bottom of 4 ft swimming pool. Many, old, rundown RV's in this park. Only hard stand sites are in the parking lot, the rest is sand and gravel. There is no security gate so anyone can drive in. Water pressure is good. Club house but no activities that we could see. Fish cleaning house and boat docks. Park is very isolated with nothing around for several miles. We would not stay here again. It was a reduced rate park through RPI.

Typical 1000 Trails Park, outdated facilities including rest rooms, showers, laundry room, however, restful. Nice walking trails along Peace River to view alligators and some wildlife. All grass sites and interior roads that puddle badly when it rains. We were here for 16 days and the hot tub worked once. They shut water down one day without notice, sign on bulletin board said no water after 9:00 am on Thursday yet it was off Wednesday. Camp store had very few items and very limited hours, 10-4 M-F, 10-6 Sat and closed Sunday. Pickleball courts need concrete around them or you constantly track sand on the courts. Children's playground is the smallest I've seen. Management and staff are curt and seem unfriendly. ELECTRIC SERVICE IS TERRIBLE. I had 50 amp service with one line 110 volts and the other 101 volts, would constantly shut down my Electrical management system due to low voltage. One day they shut down electric and didn't warn any one and then turned it back on and I lost a surge protector. Pool was too hot most of the time as to not be very refreshing. We would use park again if in the area but probably not as long a time.

Military Campground. No advance reservations, 90 day occupancy then out for 2-3 days depending on how many in overflow, then can start 90 days again. Very close to shopping and fast food on base. Many walking trails and great for pets. Very clean restrooms and showers. Laundry on site also. 45 pull through sites with 50 amp and sewers, 15 easy back in. Great water pressure. Friday pot luck lunches in small and cramped lounge. Game night on Fridays. Occasional trips to local sites in CG bus. Monthly rate was $400.00 or $360.00 if a club member. Office and grounds staff were very nice. Propane on site also. This is an active air base and can get quite noisy at times. Eglin also has a separate campground with 22 sites with 30 amp (only) and water with a dump station right on the water. These sites are rather crude. Parking on dirt and sand. On base hospital in convenient for med checkups. We would definitely stay here again.

We parked in "Battleship Row" which were the FHU sites, and had a smallish site with little or no yard, corner site. Shade with beautiful views of Perdido Bay. Sandy beach, but needed maintenance. Many boat rentals. Nice folks working here. An ocean site would have been nice, but looked like homesteaders there. Very close to City makes for a nice place to relax. We would stay here again if in the area.

I can't believe the previous write-ups. The RV Parking is no more than a parking lot resembling a RV park. Sites were so small that accommodating a 40ft 5th wheel AND a one ton truck was nearly impossible. Had we stayed we would have been right on top of our neighbors with no room for an awning. Entry into park was very tight and narrow as were the roads inside the park. All concrete and asphalt does not make for great living. We had a month booked here and ended up going elsewhere for the extra room. Had I been in a motorhome with a small toad and not staying very long I would have stayed, but not for an extended time. Attendant at the desk was not very friendly, A smile goes a long way when greeting people for the first time, maybe he didn't know how to smile. We would not come here again.

This is an excellent park. Large sites, well kept, clean and relaxing. Sewers would warrant a 10. Southern drought equals a low lake, but well worth the trip. Personnel were very personable and quite helpful. Park is not far (less than 5 miles) from major shopping and restaurants. Too bad federal funding forces early closure, I could have stayed here longer.

This park is half RVers and half homesteaders, and I definitely knew who was who. Big rig sites apply to motorhomes only. I was in a bigger site and had to back out around the corner to get out of there. Sites were big enough, but interior roads were very narrow with no turning room. Personnel were nice and helpful. I had asked for a site to use my overhead satellite system and was given one completely covered by trees, and they would not move me stating they had good cable TV. There were a lot of channels maybe but poor reception. Not sure I would stay here again as trees were dripping sap and other things; wrong trees for RV park. They would not let me wash rig either.

This was a nice relaxing park which we enjoyed thoroughly. Fire rings and a fire every night reminded us why we are campers. However, one must choose his site carefully if you are in a big rig. Good skills in backing is required to back into most sites. Dump station is a very tight turn also and the drain is on the opposite side of the camper, not a problem just a small hassle to run hose under rig. Proximity to Nashville was great. Nice area of town also, felt very safe there. Each site is rather unique as some are square, circular or triangular, again, backing into requires patience and knowledge. We would stay here again if in the area.

Extremely helpful staff and friendly. Nice large site, with a great yard. Several activities for local folks and newbies. Facilities were a little dated but clean and usable, except basketball court after a rain. Mini golf needed upgrading, but we were here at end of season. We would stay again if in the area. Seems to be centrally located to all the caves in the area and not too far from Bowling Green. Nice stay.

Out of 726 sites only 44 full hook ups for rentals, all placed in a very small area sort of an afterthought. Huge park very outdated amenities. Roads were not potholed as stated earlier. Golf cart rental was $35.00 a day and in their park brochure, there was a listing for rental cars for $19.95 a day. Pool was closed and drained when we arrived. Nothing else going on. Many homesteaders and permanent sites, some were trashed out, some were not. Personnel were friendly. Grass was mowed and grounds presented a good appearance. We felt like outsiders with the locals and not typical of other 1000 trails parks.

Nice sites with concrete patios and picnic tables. Shower room and laundry clean and fairly new machines. This camp is placed in the "north 40" well away from everything. Playground near a base lake. No other amenities available. Wind storm from Ike blew power out and it was restored within 24 hours. Nice office with friendly and helpful personnel. We would stay here again, IF in the area.

We arrived mid August and there were no activities scheduled, unusual for a 1000 Trails Preserve. Large potholes in main roads. Many low hanging trees. Mini golf unplayable. Tennis nets in need of replacing and courts have large cracks with weeds growing in between. Some interior roads have very soft gravel making bicycling very hazardous, in fact wife had an accident needing 3 sutures at local ER. Pool was closed when arrived for repair, opened for one week, then closed after Labor Day in spite of 80+ temps. Two potluck dinners were put on by members and no management available. Grounds were kept very nice and many opportunities for fishing and nonmotorized boating. This could be a very nice preserve with proper management. Many local members upset with current management.

Very large park with nice grassy and treed sites. Large pool, swimming lake and fishing lake, complete with Canadian goose and what they leave behind. 30 amp only, and the FHU sites seemed to be used by seasonal and member camping only. Restrooms, showers and buildings in deplorable condition. Laundry room is terrible with 10-15 year old washers and dryers that showed their use. Had a sign posted that said iron in water will turn your whites yellow. We went into town for laundry and would not use restrooms or showers. This could be a very nice park with some upgrades to above. Located next to a cloverleaf of two major highways making it very noisy 24 hours a day. We will not stay here again.

All pull throughs make this a good overnighter, however we stayed a week. Nice managers, very clean park and well kept. Near many chain restaurants and a very overpriced cheese market. Easy on and off access to highways. Very level sights with grass and tables, some fire rings. Next to some kind of plant that was noisy, and, of course, being next to highways, very noisy also. Good sat TV reception and Verizon aircard was great for phones and internet. We would consider staying here again in the future.

I agree with other reviewers. This is a young park that is growing. Small trees will eventually provide plenty of shade. 3 ponds for fishing. Pull through sites are double length with two units per site, so you may or may not get a pull through site. Plenty wide enough even for the novice backer. Park owners are very friendly and helpful but leave you alone also. Dumpster could be closer to sites but not a problem being near the front. Mail and delivery service is available at the park. $5.00 to wash RV and $2.00 to wash vehicle (self wash) is very reasonable. Close to 2 large lakes for fishing and boating, but this is Minnesota, Land of 10,000 lakes. Park water looks rusty but that may be all the iron ore in the area. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again as it is probably the premier park for Duluth.

This was a nice relaxing park (RPI) and we enjoyed our stay. We were allowed to pick a site, so we walked around and selected a nice treed site that was a back-in but very wide streets and wide lots made for easy backing. Good 50 amp power and good, not great, water pressure. Several channels into park from lake but many reeds in water. Good pool area and even had Saturday night entertainment that was free and enjoyable. Nice to see so many people there with kids and everyone having fun. Park has boat and trailer storage in center of park which detracts somewhat from it being a 5 Star resort. Many park models and seasonal sites. Several "older" trailers and open storage on lots detracted from 5 star rating also. I needed RV repair and called the service that the office recommended, and said worked weekends also, but they never called back. All in all we enjoyed our stay and would stay again if in the area...

Mostly shaded park near the Twin Cities. Closest park to Mall of America. Spaces are dirt and grass, interior roads are narrow and parking for vehicles is limited. Sites are wide enough, just a little tough to get into and out of. Personnel were friendly and helpful. Indoor pool is nice and large. Well stocked convenience store. We would stay here again if in the area.

Very nice and clean park. Personnel were very friendly. We parked on second tier in a level, 50 amp site and felt very comfortable. Park is next to I90 but noise was minimal. This is a family oriented park and this weekend was themed "Christmas in July". Only a few sites were decorated. Pool was a little small for number of spaces but overall a very relaxing stay. We would stay here again if in the Sioux Falls area..

This park offered us a respite from travel. We stayed two days as everyone else was staying just one night. Definitely a "stop over" park but we found it nice and relaxing. The pool and hot tub were especially clean and relaxing. Host couple was very helpful, polite and respectful. I tried to eat the breakfast which was not very well prepared and passed on the dinner (burgers and dogs). I would stay here again if the opportunity presented itself. I do feel the rates for the KOA's are excessive...

Nice place to stay if you have military privileges. Sites are well spaced apart, level concrete spaces, with grass all around, picnic table and BBQ at each site; very quiet. Laundry was clean and much cheaper than most parks. Good central location for visiting local tourist attractions. Friendly, helpful camp host. Availability is a first-come, first served basis -- no reservations.

Nice park, good access roads, easy pull-in sites. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Pool was clean and refreshing. We could tell the staff was very proud of this park as it was very clean and nice little add-ons were being built around the park to make it visually more appealing (simple things like wooden structure around the garbage cans, privacy fences around the tent sites, etc.). We would definitely stay here again.

We had made reservations 60 days in advance and had a confirmation number for a 7-day stay here. Upon arrival, we were told that our reservations had been canceled. When we asked who had canceled the reservation, who they had talked to, and when were the reservations canceled, she said she didn't know. She would not honor our reservation and could only accommodate us for one night. We overheard her talking to her coworker asking for verification that RPI reservations had in fact been canceled. We got the impression that because of the upcoming July 4th weekend and that Hart was completely booked, they had been canceling RPI reservations to make room for their "members." She specifically told us that their first and only priority was to their members. Fortunately, we were able to move to the nearby Ellsworth AFB FamCamp. The camp host there told us that in the last two days she had been contacted by three other RPI members who had the same thing happen to them by the Hart campground. Hart Ranch should not be listed as an RPI campground if this is how guests are treated. The staff was courteous, but uncaring. A weekend manager was not on duty to sort out this problem which seemed strange for a 5-star resort.

Very nice campground although rather expensive, even with the Good Sam discount. We were in a pull-through, level, hard-pack site. Lots of large trees. Has a swimming pool and nice walking path. Would definitely stay here again. They have an ice cream social every night which was enjoyable to meet the other RVers. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Clean, open park. Sites are gravel pads and very level. No frills park on the outskirks of town. Staff was friendly. Laundry large, clean and reasonably priced. Each site had a grassy area with picnic table. Park was full the entire time for this time of year and reservations are needed. Sites fairly close together and with neighbors slides out we could not put out our awning and their slides did extend into our area quite a bit. However, since we were out sightseeing every day this was not a big deal for us. It was starting to get hot and a pool would have been nice to cool off at the end of the day. Would stay here again.

Nothing fancy, but nice park for what we wanted. Good central location for touring this area at a reasonable rate (Passport America). Parks in West Yellowstone much more expensive. Staff was friendly and helpful. We were parked nearest Highway 20 so we got a lot of road noise. No problems with satellite TV, phone reception, or WiFi. Nice, large pull through site with plenty of room to park both RV and truck. Gravel sites require leveling of RV but not too bad. Clean, large laundry facility. Fuel and small grocery store next door.

Being retired military, we always like staying at FamCamps when possible, as it gives us access to commissary, BX, and medical facilities and we can be assured of a nice, clean park. Hill FamCamp was no exception. It's a good central location for visiting the Salt Lake City sights. Only complaint (if you want to call it that) is having to come in and depart through a gate that is the complete opposite side of the park location itself. Also, the camp host was rarely available and when gone, he never left reservation info with his alternate. We had come in a day early and he had no idea where we were going to be assigned and check whether it was open then. Other than that, it was a great experience.

Lot of sites were taken by those here for a lengthy stay. We were parked on the road within the park and were given safety cones to place around our RV. Luckily we were here only for the night. This was a park for those traveling with a horse(s). Stables and RV sites were toward the back of the park for these folks.

Thousand Trails should level this place and start over. If it weren't a membership park, we would have stayed somewhere else. Sites are way too close together and streets are too narrow. But our goal was to enjoy Las Vegas, not spend time in the park.

This is a nice, clean park to stay in. This is our preferred park to stay in this area as it caters to RVs (most of the parks in Apache Junction have a high number of permanent residents (park models), and seem to resent their mobile brethren). It has a nice pool and hot tub and a good club house.

Good central location for the Bryce Canyon area. We were one of the few people staying here more than one night. (We stayed two weeks). This park gets a lot of overnight pull-ins. However, it met our needs just fine as we were out and about almost every day. The staff was very friendly and helpful and was working hard to gear up for the summer. This is a windy area so it was very dusty.

Good park, but not the best Thousand Trails park we've been in. Seemed that upkeep of RV sites and common areas needed more attention. However, as we've found with Thousand Trails, the family atmosphere and sense of community can't be beat. We enjoyed the pickleball games every morning and the restaurant was great. The "geocache" search of finding numbered rocks while traversing the trails within the park was lots of fun. Nice central location for visiting all the nearby tourist sights.

After traveling the very dusty Alcan from Alaska, it was a relief to drive right into their wash station before going to our site. Our site was surrounded by trees and very comfortable. The nearby trails were fun to walk with the dog. Only suggestion I would make about the park is that they need to at least have gravel at the sites and roads. It was very dusty at our site and leaving windows open here resulted in dust over everything inside the RV.

A place to stop for the night before crossing the border into Canada. It was clean, but nothing fancy at all. They had us park near the check in building and we heard traffic coming and going all night. Definitely not a place for a lengthy stay.

Although we made reservations for full hookups, we were given a site without sewer. When we complained, they switched us to another site at no extra charge. This was a nice park. It was neat to watch the float planes land and take off. The morning we left, we saw two trumpeter swans take off from the lake. Awesome! The staff was wonderful. We had left something at our site when we left and they mailed it to us at no charge. We would absolutely stay here again.

Hardly memorable. A place to park; absolutely nothing fancy.

Very nice campground! Sites were parallel to roads so the RV curb side faced forested area and the sites were staggered so that no RV was across from another (the nearest neighbor was 30-40' away). It's very peaceful and gives a secluded feeling. Lots of forested area to walk the dog! Free laundry service. Nice playground for kids. Having sewer is a big plus over neighboring Elmendorf AFB FamCamp. Did have to wet down road occasionally to keep dust down. The military RV parks are the best Anchorage has to offer (wouldn't stay anywhere else within Anchorage).

Every activity desired is available here! We learned to play pickleball here and they have a wonderful program for beginners. Great location for visiting local attractions. We were in one of the long pull through sites which wasn't the best for the length of time we were here (six weeks). These sites are so close that we had to put our picnic table and chairs in front or behind our RV and the awning could not be put out. Right outside our door would be the neighbors vehicle (within about 5 feet). We will certainly return here but definitely ask for a different site. All the facilities were immaculate and they have a really nice restaurant.
