This park was a real hassle to get in and out of. It wasn't well marked from the main road as to it's location so had to stop several times and went way out of my way to get there. The park itself was lovely BUT if you have a big rig, be warned: there are some killer steep hills getting back to the campground which seemed to be a long way from the entrance. One set of hills especially did damage to both my truck and 5th wheel going out. It was a 6%+ grade going down with an immediate 6% grade going back up. Coming out was tough at that point because you have to gear down so as not to wrap yourself around the trees on the way down the winding road and then you don't have enough speed at the bottom to get a run going up the next hill which my truck really struggled with. Our campsite was peaceful and nicely shaded. a beautiful spot (#19). It was very secluded and as such had no Internet or TV reception but I can deal with that for one night. Dogs loved it. There was a bard owl in the tree right behind my site which serenaded me for a long time that evening. Windows open, AC off! it was very nice and actually got cold in the wee hours of the morning. A lovely spot, just be prepared for some tricky hills getting in and out.

I arrived after dark in a new RV that I had only set up one time prior to my arrival at this KOA. Their signage is lacking on the main road as I went whizzing right past it. Once there, the people were very pleasant to talk to. The campground was clean but there was no escort to the site which left me a bit nervous especially setting up in the dark. Sites were level and well maintained. Tree overhead was nice. I got an easy in/out pull through. There were designated areas for trash. I only stayed one night as I was on a road trip back to Florida. I would use this campground again if the opportunity presented itself.

The best sites are on top of a hill, furthest from the railroad tracks that are used constantly by long, noisy freight trains. Sites are narrow, fire rings are placed too close to the neighboring sites so you have your neighbors get together right outside your window. Sites are NOT level as you go up the hill and if you want a pull through and have a trailer with low ground clearance- forget it. You have to go up one side of the hill on a very narrow road and half way down the other side. This park was not designed for today's RVs with slideouts. They don't maintain their road, which is extremely rutted due to rain (natural speed bumps), the bark park is unusable by any dog of less than about 25 # as they can slip through the fence. No chicken wire to prevent that. My dogs were not able to play in there as they are 7 & 18 pounds and got through the fence easily. Like another reviewer said, kids' activities are haphazard at best and they ran out of s'mores at the bonfire early. To their credit, the rangers did help me solve a problem with my water heater without charging me. Being less than 100' from the railroad tracks was a challenge. Thankfully, I was only there at night. They are WAY too expensive for the amenities they offer.

This is a state park and it is very nicely set up. Had a clear view of the mountains and the reservoir. We had a full hookup pull through that was parallel to the road in 3 concentric loops. Level concrete sites with large attached areas for picnicking and setting up areas for pets. A nice walk to the beach by the boat ramp and marina. Quiet, friendly people. If you want to use the "dog off leash area" and your dogs don't come when called, forget it. It isn't fenced and it appears that more people than less don't clean up after their animals so the trails were littered with dog messes. It is not a fenced area but more a space for training dogs to retrieve items from the water. No use to my dogs. I had to keep them leashed. There is a $10 extra fee in addition to the daily fee of $8 and the camping fee made this one of the more expensive campgrounds I have stayed in but it was a peaceful site so I didn't mind the expense. Oh- BTW- guests have to pay the daily park admission fee to get in to visit you.

This was the last stop on my road trip home to Florida. Quick in and out from the interstate made this stop an easy choice. Nice people but if you don't like cats, don't go in the office. It wreaked of cat urine. Site was level and long though a bit narrow for my two slideouts. I had to be very careful when setting up. The water, sewer, and power were close to the back end of the pull-through so a bit of a stretch for all my cords. Nice grassy area for the puppies. There are several long term residences in this park that give it a very southern, hospitable atmosphere. Lots of stores, restaurants and a WalMart within walking distance so you don't have to unhook your rig! Big plus.

This appears to be a family owned campground. Small and intimate. The pull-throughs seem to go in every direction! There was no sewer hookup at my site but water, electric and cable were fine. There was some grass for the puppies to enjoy. Close to the interstate so it was easy on/off except my GPS took me way around the long way. Would have been so much easier looking at a map! Site was not level and there appeared to be several long-termers there. What I saw of the park was neat and clean although one got the impression that it was set up to use every usable inch they could. I was surprised at the number of campers they were able to get in there. People were very nice. A nice place to go if you are on a road trip like I was. I would visit again but I would request a back in spot not a pull-through as they were quite narrow. Make sure you bring your chock blocks and levelers with you.

Arrived late afternoon and was escorted to one of their long, level pull- through sites and got hooked up and took the dogs for a walk. Their dog area is small but clean. They had lots of Halloween decorations up that my dogs didn't particularly care for but were cute. The only negative to this park is the trucking company right in front of the pull through sites and the trucks come in late afternoon and cause a lot of dust kickup and leave really early in the morning. Other than that, it was easy on, easy off the highway, which was convenient.
