This is a membership park. Must be a member of Passport or Good Sam to stay here. They may accept other membership clubs, but if not PA or GS, call first to verify. Price is based on PA or Good Sam discounts with the base being $50. Park is constantly being improved. Two years ago our site was water & electric, this year it is full hookup. Next year the laundry will be better. There is a book exchange in the workout room next door to the laundry, but the selection was small (ask for enter code to workout room at the office). WiFi is available at the office, but not at each site. The 'pool' has a natural beach. Our site was on the highway side and traffic noise was evident, but not intrusive. We have stayed in this park twice and would stay again.

The sites at this park were large with lots of grass between sites. There are shade trees, but the sites are satellite friendly. We stayed in a water/electric site. There are electric only sites, but they are narrow and very short and back up to a small hill. I agree with the previous post about the park attendants not being familiar with the sites. My other complaint is that the $16 that we paid for our water/electric site did not include a permit to park our motorhome. I needed to buy permits for both the car and the motorhome at $4 each. This brought the cost of a week from $112 to $174 and the cost of a single night from $16 to $24!! This same cost is not levied on trailers or fifth-wheels. Motorhomes are charged extra because they have a motor and can be driven. I guess they thought we were going to be joy riding around the park in our motorhome. We will probably not return to this park or any other Kansas State Park if this policy is followed at all of them.

This is a Passport America park and the price reflects weekly rate. The park is behind an old historic motel and the entrance is through the motel lot. Don't let the appearance of the motel stop you, it is being renovated and looks run-down right now. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Sites are grassy with lots of large shade trees, but still good satellite reception. Cable is offered for an additional $2. Sites are side-by-side and back-to-back, but there were two other large motorhomes there and everyone had plenty of room. There is only one washer and one dryer in the 'laundry room' but it is free. We would stay here again if in the area.

This is a Good Sam park, but has very inexpensive weekly rates. Managers were very friendly and helpful. Sites are gravel with grass between. There are 17 pullthrus near the office, but all other sites back up to, and overlook the South Umpqua River. Some are shaded and some are open for good satellite access. Big grassy area across the road from the back-in sites. Park has river access ramp. Located at exit 112 off I-5 and about a mile and a half north of Myrtle Creek. There are two clean laundry rooms-one at either end of park. We would definitely stay here again.

A Passport America campground. The park has water and electric only, no sewer hook-ups - but there is a dump station. Park is well maintained with grass sites and un-paved roads. three quarters of the park is under a canopy of fir trees that are just beautiful and provide great shade, but don't allow satellite access. The front row has less coverage and three or four sites from which satellite is accessible. There is some highway noise, with a lumber mill a block away, but it was not a major concern. Randle is just about halfway between Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Rainier. It is a good stop if you intend to see both parks. The town is very small, but it has a couple of gas stations, a small well-stocked grocery, and several restaurants. Rating would have been higher with sewer hookups, but we will return if in the area again.

This is a basic RV park. The interior roads are paved and the grass sites are large and level (advertised as 30x80 pull-thrus). Many shade trees, but they didn't interfere with our satellite access. Park is well-maintained and managers were very friendly. Even though it is right next to US 2, the road isn't heavily traveled and noise was not a problem. If we didn't have reservations in Washington for the next night, we would have stayed a week. The road in is right next to the driveway of the motel next door and we found out the hard way that it is easy to take the wrong road.

This park can accommodate big rigs, but some of the sites take some maneuvering to get squared away. We have two slides and had enough room, but a couple of times the awning had to be put away to make room for the vehicle next door to fit between us and a fence. There are several sites around the park with heavy tree coverage, but the pull-through sites are in open, gravel, treeless lots. We were parked behind the office in one of the pull-through lots and the road out had the appearance of a back alley; lots of trash and junk scattered around. It could use some cleaning up. The owner and campground hosts were very friendly and helpful. Rexburg is an interesting town, in that it is almost exactly halfway between Jackson, Wyoming and Yellowstone National Park. Our price reflects a week @ $140.

A decent campground. This is a Passport park and the rate is good all year. We stayed two weeks so we could catch the shuttle launch. The owner (woman) was friendly - not really a "people person", but she worked constantly to keep the park clean and neat. The lake had several alligators in residence, an Anhinga (snake bird), and a Blue Heron. Some of the sites were larger than others, and they were level. Laundry has two washers and two dryers. The park has wifi that costs about $17 for the week. Landscaping is pleasant, with orange trees between some of the sites. Scottsmoor has nothing in the way of shopping (grocery or otherwise), but Titusville is within 15 miles and there is plenty of shopping there. We enjoyed our stay there and would probably return.

Price reflects the nightly Passport America rate - we've been traveling the country for two years and this is the only park we've found at which the already low weekly rate is cut in half for the Passport discount. The weekly rate on Passport is $55+$4.95 tax. This rate is good for two weeks only. A very nice park with friendly people. Bingo on wednesday nights, crafts on Tuesdays, Pot lucks and breakfast. Park has access to public lands that border it and there are numerous trails. Two miles from Stephen Foster Cultural Center State Park and 10 miles from Lake City. We stayed here over Thanksgiving and had a wonderful turkey dinner provided by the park. We toured the other parks in the area and this seems to be the nicest one. WE would definitely return to this park.

Passport America park with no restrictions on use of discount. Access road is 3 miles of hilly, winding, wooded gravel road that is sometimes one lane wide. Park is part of a working cattle ranch. Interior roads are rough and need work. Not all sites are numbered, but site map is accurate and easy to follow. The park is about 70% permanent trailer/camper sites. Since it is the end of the season, there aren't many people here during the week. We have been here for 10 days because it is quiet and peaceful. Large shade trees, but our site backs up to an open field. Satellite access is not a problem. We have phone with Verizon and are able to get a signal, but sometimes the signal is not perfect. The water has been unreliable - sometimes clear and sometimes brown. We were told it had a high iron content and was chlorinated. We use bottled water, but campground water is okay for showers. Campground has a laundry that needs updating. the regular sized washers and driers are not working but there is a commercial sized washer and dryer that worked well. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. We have enjoyed our stay here.

This is a Passport America Park and our price reflects the Passport discount. We stayed here for four days and found it to be a decent campground. The horses do not roam the campground, so 90% of the sites are not bothered by horse droppings. Most of the sites are pretty well shaded with large trees, but there is a lot (6 pull-through sites) that has no trees where we were able to get satellite reception. It rained almost every day, so there were many pools of standing water on our site. The office has a good selection of supplies, as well as gifts. Overall, we were comfortable here and will probably return in the future.

The road to this campground is a county road that is narrow & hilly with hairpins turns. It is fun to drive in our car, but not so much in the motorhome. This campground advertises 77 available campsites, but total number is 195. It is mostly seasonal/permanent campers. There is one pull-through and it is squeezed in among the permanent sites. We camped here in a 36' motorhome and I don't think I would try to navigate the roads in anything larger. To get to our site, we had to use a road that was closely bordered by permanent trailers and trees - didn't think we would fit. There is a nice pool & miniature golf. The laundry has two washers and two dryers. The grass sites are electric only. A road leads down to the river with several back-in sites, again mostly permanent. We asked if they had sites with a clear southern sky for satellite and were told they did. We had to go to town and buy 100' of extra cable to get past the trees. The only other sites that are in the clear are the electric only sites. We are here for a week. In the future, I would stay only for a night or two.

An extremely nice, peaceful park. It was a mobile home park when the air force base was open and is a few blocks from the Octave Chanute Air Museum and about 15 miles from the Champaign/Urbana area. The picture on the web site is an exact depiction of the park. Sites were large and level, surrounded by shade trees , but not enough to hamper satellite reception. The park is very well maintained. The roads were bordered with low curbs and the site included a parking area with a sidewalk from the street to the concrete patio at the campsite. The center of the park has sidewalks from the street to the laundry/shower building and the pavilion. Dogs are limited to two per vehicle and are not allowed in the center of the park near the sidewalks, but there is ample open grassy areas where dogs are permitted. The laundry room and showers are large and clean. The park is very quiet and far from any main highways. We found this park by accident when we took a wrong turn and found ourselves in the Champaign area. We were pleasantly surprised and extended our stay to a week. Weekly rates are $100.

This park is very nice. Nightly rate is $16 and weekly is $90. The park is shady and quiet with a friendly manager, gravel roads, grass and lots of trees. The park also has a small lake, mostly for a view, not for boating or swimming or fishing. The trees provide a lot of shade, but there are enough treeless areas that we are able to get good satellite reception. Park manager carves trees during his spare time, so there are many trees with faces on the front, or that have been turned into bears or dolphins. The owner is in the process of adding a couple of pull-thru sites strictly for overnighters. Herrin is a nice town with many fast food places, a Walmart (not a supercenter), some restaurants. The rv park is across the street from the town park that has many playground areas for children and lots of picnic areas. We would definitely return to this park.

We are currently staying in this rv park. Sites are paved and somewhat narrow. But we have room for our slides and a space to put a lawn chair or two. Park benches on the riverbank offer a great view of the Mississippi River with the tugboats and barges passing by as well as an ocassional riverboat. If you go to the boat and get the players pass before checking in at the gift shop, it's good for a free night in the rv park as well as $2 off per night. When used with the Good Sam discount, we paid for 5 nights and get 2 free. The park offers free wifi along with cable tv. Small laundry room with two washers and two dryers, a dollar changer and vending machine for detergent and additives. All in all, we would stay here again.

Sites were large enough to put up a screened-in room next to your motorhome/5th wheel. If you're smart, you'll have one. The gnats/bugs were awful! Couldn't sit on my chair outside until I had swept the dead gnats onto the ground. The pecan trees offered a good amount of shade, but the leaf clusters that dropped from the trees coated my awning and had to be washed and swept before putting away. Park had a rec room/group kitchen area, but looked like no one had been in there to clean in years. A good play ground for kids. Far too many dogs on the loose without leashes. One small child whose free running dog was barking at my dogs told me "he just doesn't get along well with other dogs." There was a large group there for Memorial Day and some have been going there for eight years. To be fair, one long-time visitor said that the gnats have never been this bad. Management was very friendly. Satellite TV reception was good, but had trouble getting a good satellite internet signal through the trees. Because of problems I have mentioned, we probably won't be going back there.

This park is beautiful! Each site is paved, most have special space for car/truck. Each site has a smooth gravel patio that is bordered by wood planks. Each patio has a firepit, a barbecue, a shepherds pole for lanterns, and an open-weave metal picnic table. The park visitors center has minimum supplies, as well as gifts (t-shirts, mugs, lap blankets, etc.). Access roads are paved and there are several hiking trails. Park offers senior discounts. Our original time here was 4 days, but it was so relaxing and quiet that we extended for the full week. I highly recommend a stay in this park.

The owners of this park are very nice and helpful. Park is very neat and is fairly new with young landscaping. D & A is about 5 miles west of town on frontage road. It is near the interstate, but the noise is not oppresive. Inexpensive weekly and monthly rates. It is close enough to San Antonio to be a good place to stay while visiting the area. We would stay there again.

Sites were large and fairly level. Owner was very nice and helpful. Wireless internet is available, but only for selected sites. You must be close to the office in order to use the internet. Cable tv is also available, but our neighbors had to run a cable across two other sites in order to hook into it. Some sites back up to the river. Good tree coverage at our site, but not so much that we couldn't get satellite tv.

Passport park so our actual rate was $12.50 - We stayed for a week and the Passport rate was used for entire stay. A very nice campground. Wireless internet is available for a small fee of $1 a day or $5 for the week. Located 5 miles outside of Sturgis, it is very peaceful and quiet. The only downside for us was the lack of any phone service. You must leave the park and drive closer to Interstate 90 to get a signal. Some of the sites are close together, but there are many sites that offer more room. Plenty of room for our 36' motorhome. We would stay here again.

This campground is located behind the American RV dealership and is wonderful if you are having work done on your motorhome or fifthwheel. The sites are wide enough to hold two motorhomes side-by-side and is useful for transferring your life from an old motorhome to a new one. There is a modem hook-up in the dealership lounge to use during business hours. They also provide some free breakfast foods in the lounge for guests. The best part about this campground is that there is a new Camping World in this dealership. It would be a great park to stay overnight, but can't imagine staying longer than that. I'm not exactly sure what we paid to stay there.

The actual address for this campground is Concan, Texas. It is a Passport campground and is listed in their directory under Concan. The mailing address is the P. O. in Rio Frio. Don't know why. They have monthly rates that include electricity. This campground is great. There is a well-stocked store for groceries and rv supplies, a very large rec room with big screen TV. The campground overlooks the Frio River and Garner State Park. The river is beautiful and there is access to it from the campground. It is miles away from any large city or population area which makes it quiet and relaxing. They are installing WIFI, but it is new and there are occassional problems. We stayed there a month and considered staying longer.

This park is in the middle of the desert with excellent views of area mountains and beautiful sunsets. The original 18 sites are fenced in, but the owner has added an additional 16 sites in a large gravel lot outside the fenced area. Most of these sites are very large pull-thrus. This area is currently not landscaped since it is new. I like the new area because of the feeling of camping in the desert. You can see for miles in all directions. I10 is about a half-mile away and in plain site, but there is rarely any noise from the highway. The one downside is that the campground is unprotected from the high winds during Spring. We have experienced wind gusts up to 50 mph this month. However, we would definitely stay here again.

Park was fairly quiet even though it was close to I-10. We chose a grassy site instead of a concrete one. The only problem was when the rain was heavy, there was considerable flooding. But it dried up quickly. I use Verizon for my internet connection and this park seemed to be on the edge of the Verizon area. I was able to connect, but it was sporadic. We stayed for a month at $185 + electric. $40 (444kwh) of electricity was included in the monthly rental, overage was 0.09 cents per. The campground is close to the Creole Nature Trail and the Louisiana coast. Shopping in Vinton is limited, but closed enough to Walmart, etc in Sulphur, LA and Orange, TX. I would stay here again.
