An out of the way park, signage to it not very good, but otherwise a pleasant surprise. Hiking trails have a view of the Horicon Marsh which is a must place to go to. Only down side is the 20 amp sites. Would stop here again without a doubt.

The park setup gave a fair amount of privacy, especially if the campground is half full. We had little difficulty maneuvering although others may. In season probably requires reservations. We were disappointed that the tower was closed already. A good park to bike in and not far from the shops and museums in Sturgeon Bay.

Plenty of hiking trails and several ways to get down to the beach on Green Bay. We got the bikes down and headed down the paved trail to find it joins with paved county roads. Great place to visit Green Bay from and not far from the Shrine of Good Help which is a truly spiritual experience. Contrary to previous posters had no problem with 30 ft RV with a tow vehicle and big turning radius.

If we are in the area, we will come back to this Brushy Creek to investigate it. It was a stopping place for us this time. Good big sites, some paved some gravel. It was nice because of the limited lighting allowing you to see the stars.

If you come through the main drag of Correctionville, you will need to do a 1/2 block jog. This is a correction in the survey lines and 3 townships meet at this corner. Playground equipment is located near the campground. Four camping cabins are available for rent as well. Approximately 50 non-electrical campsites are located on the west side of the lake with access to modern restrooms and showers. The Union Bridge Trail connects the park to the town of Correctionville with a ten foot wide concrete path that winds through scenic areas and crossing the Little Sioux River with a spectacular bridge. The 10-acre lake has angling opportunities for large-mouth bass, bluegill and channel catfish. Only electric trolling motors, oars and paddles are allowed on all county owned lakes. There is a designated swimming beach area. Hiking trails offer opportunities to explore the marsh, native trees, shrub plantings, native prairies and food plots.

County owned and electricity is being updated. We expected to see hiking trails, etc, but none present. There is swimming for kids and a pretty busy boat dock. It would appear that a majority of the campers are seasonal. We used it as a base camp, but will find another campground in the future. We also expected it tough to find a site because of the closure of Minnesota parks but we were the only transient campers.

Deserves higher rating, except for the management of the campground. This is a first come first served, no reservations campground. There are many signs around saying the sites must be occupied. Unfortunately we backed into a site that someone thought he could put a tag on the post and not occupy it. After setting up, and then registering we found his tag, that he had put in there in the morning and did not occupy it.

Plenty of room to hike and bike. Be careful on the upper camping area, the turns on the west side on very tight. Cutbacks have affected Iowa campgrounds as some of the picnic areas are not being mowed, just paths to and around them.

Small state park, limited number of large sites. We are in a 30 rig, and only a few sites were adequate. Mostly shady, watch for the trees.

Brand spanking new. Will only get better as the trees grow. Near Grundy Lake and bike trails. If you have time go south and stop at the Grundy County Museum in Morrison. Travel a bit further south to Gladbrook and stop at the Matchbook Museum. It is absolutely awesome and if you are there over the weekend see a $3.00 movie in their new theater.

Almost a new campground. When the trees grow and give shade it will be an easy 10. Nice, quiet location with a nice bike path nearby.

This is really a trailer park that doubles as an RV park. It is a full hook up park, and is not very scenic or particularly clean. Stopped to check out the history at the Dakota Buttes Museum, which was closed, but the small library has a very good historical reference area in their basement. Mirror Lake has RV parking too, but not sure if they are full hookups.

A place to stop. Fairly private. Not very handy for bigger rigs, our 30 ft 5ver used every bit of the roads and needed grass to finish the turns. Some trees need pruning.

A real jewel. The scenic byways roads needs to be taken, be careful you don't meet any farm machinery on them. Super hiking place and very big campsites.

Campsites are not especially long, and the main attraction here would be just a bit of hiking and fishing, and being alone.

The state park should meet the needs of the hiker, biker, the fisherman, the history buff and even those who wish to be laid back. Great place to be, and good place to use as a base to investigate Bismarck and Mandan. Get up earlier and watch the sun come up over the river.

The WiFi did not work for us. It is a nice clean campground and has easy access to Spearfish Canyon, a don't miss drive to and hiking place. Nearby is a fish hatchery with some monster trout, but most of it closes down after Labor Day. Our GPS directions were not real good to arrive here.

The campground is not exceptional. Right now like many in ND and Montana it has a lot of oil and pipeline workers. What is exceptional is the large pronghorn herd that likes to graze in the area of the golf course. And right in Broadus is a local museum that has over 20,000 seashells and a display of arrowheads from every state, plus more to see. Its free and more than worth every penny and minute spent there.

Certainly not a Grand View at this park. The sites are relatively large, with fairly level sites. Access is very good. A place to stop overnight or to use as a base to see the various places in the area. Hostess was helpful.

Beautiful place, the museum and trails are great. It's big enough to use the bikes and don't forget the Pembook Museum across the road with many, many restored vehicles and tractors. Would return in a heartbeat.

There is WiFi available but it's best to go to the library a block away. The water is at the shower restroom, and it's a tight corner for larger vehicles or pull type RV. Ok place to stop at night.

The only down side of this park is the fact that nearby is a large manufacturing plant that is relatively noisy. It does have some paved biking and hiking trails.

Really a family oriented type park. A lot of young people were spending time swimming at the end of the peninsula. Not a lot of outside activities if you don't fish or swim. But it is still a nice lakeside park.

National Parks Pass cuts the rate by 1/2. It is next to a railroad track, but the night we were here they stopped running by 10 PM. Other than camping and fishing, there's not much else to do. Town has no restaurants, and the hills and roads are not conducive to biking. It is also rather difficult to find. It will be very busy on the summer weekends however.

Campground is designed like a private campground. Has close sites with little vegetation between. Does have level flat sites with lots of pavement.

The hand out, history sheets of the area was great. The only complaint was that to park in the west side of the camping area, requires passing the first entrance and going to the 2nd entrance, or go to the end and back up to turn around.

I don't think the private parks that we passed on the way, can compete with Brantley. We used it as a base to explore Carlsbad and the surrounding area. We gave ourselves 45 minutes to get to the Caverns, but could have used an hour or even more. Spring in the desert is lovely, and the Caverns are awesome.

Not a place to go if you want a scenic view. Very functional, with water sewer and electric. Easy to maneuver, no bright lights, secure with a security gate. Good place to set as home base to go to the plaza and other points. Shopping malls and stores are close by. We spent 4 nights here. Rodeo hosts will help you with places to go to as they are long time residents.

Really super place, make sure you get to the Cauplin Volcano Monument via the byway. Make sure you get there early enough. Don't forget to hike the Sugarite Coal camp. That is a real eyeopener. We did spot a Big Horn on our way out. We would recommend this to all under 32 foot 5vers. Near the end of April, we woke up to some snow and temperatures below freezing.

You can see the Royal Gorge bride from the camp. Park has a nice hostess and host. Does have WiFi, but it's a bit weak when more than 300 feet from office. Sites are decently level, but relatively close together.

It is actually Pulpit Rock Campground. Very nice campground, although near Highway 52 which can be busy. Do climb Pulpit Rock and view the flood plain to see the Thunderbird, then go to Phelps park and see it from another angle. A bike path leaves the park into Decorah. Check out the architecture of the town, especially near Phelps park. Would stay here again.

Real nice place, even better because we were off season and the place was almost to ourselves. Birds were singing. If it falls within another trip we will stop here again. It is not far from Elk Horn and the Danish Settlement, the Danish Buffet is good, but not spectacular. Walnut has lots of antique shops and some murals on the buildings.

The signage for this park is really, really bad. We wanted only to stay one evening and the attendant sent us up the hill to the upper campsites, when one by the river was perfectly fine as all of these were open. We really needed to dump our tanks and the attendant said the dump station was at the top. When we left later we saw there was another about 300 feet away from the office. It was hidden by some parked cars. After looking at the map given to us we wound up headed down into the day only area. With some difficulty we managed to turn around, and get into the campgrounds. We were led to believe that there were a lot of open sites. NOPE. We finally got into a "pull through" that required 6 inches of blocking to level. When we left we had to back out because the exit area was washed out, and would have cause damage to the area under our pin. If we would have been directed to the sites on the river( they are not shown on the map) the score would have a 6 or 7. On the plus side it is a nice drive, especially down the River Road towards the Natural Bridge.

We hate to give this beautiful campground such a low rating, but until the electrical problems are sorted out we have no choice. We stayed at F1 and the ground fault protectors kept tripping. One of the hosts said that whenever it rains a lot, and it had, the ground faults trip. He gave me a plug for 20 Amp with the ground knocked out and it worked for about 2 hours and then it began tripping again even with only the main on the 5ver plugged in. We basically wound up boondocking here.

New owners May 1, 2009. The over all camp needs a lot of work. I am sure that given a year or two the owners will make it much nicer. The low rating is because there is a high percentage of year round campers. A 9 for the new owners enthusiasm.

There are only 24 electrical sites. The sites need some upgrading with additional gravel. The pads are OK, it is along side the RV and the picnic table that need the extra gravel. Trailers and 5vers over 30 feet need to be careful as to what site they get. Trees, signposts and a narrow road make for some difficulty in backing into some sites. If you are in the area more than a day do bike the Old Abe trail and plan on seeing the Chippewa Moraine Ice Age State Recreation Area.

Be careful if coming from the North through town, our GPS wanted us to route us under a bridge less than 10 ft high. The RedBuds were in full bloom and beautiful. The fishing is apparently very good here and in the area. The campsites are quite close so it gets a 7 instead of a nine.

There seemed to be as many camping in the Wal-mart a few blocks from here as there were here. There is not a lot of choices for campgrounds in the area. Friendly people, the level gravel sites are close together. This was a stop between Bents Fort, a must see, and the train ride at the Royal Gorge for us. There are reenactments in late Nov & Dec at the Fort.

A nice campground, and a good spot to see the Museum in Scott City about the surrounding area. Real nice personel there, and it has a map of the inland seas from when this area was under water. Plan on driving out to see Monument rocks. One of the showers are enclosed the other is open air.

Located on Lake Atwood, disappointedly dry and empty, This is an OK spot to stop for the night. You must get your key at the Conoco station to open the electrical box. We used it as a spot to check out the Arickee Breaks and some of the local museums with a 50 mile radius. Nice museum in town. Aberdeen Steak house open only on weekends.

There was WiFii, but the network settings were not right for my laptop, so it was not of any use. Other than most of the campsites being close, it was fine. I would stop again if passing through, but not to use it as a headquarters. There is a nice little walking path of 1/4 mile or more.

We spent 4 days here. We stayed here because it was the end of the Chippewa River Bike Trail which also meets the Cedar River trail so it was a good place to do so. Campsites are close together and are all back in, but lots of room to do so. Check out the historical museum and see the original court rooms. Read about the gunfight in 1881 and learn about the paddle wheels on the Chippewa. Unless you are just traveling through or intent on biking, this might not be the place for you.

Missouri State Parks are great places to stay. This one is no exception. Campground host were terrific. Make sure you tour the Watkins Mill and also hike the paved trail around the Lake. Make time to go to Excelsior Springs too. It is not far to travel back to Kansas City to see some things there too. The Arabia Steamship Museum is a must see and Harry Truman's Library is not far off the path either.

This is a non reserve State Park about 30+ miles south west of Overland Park. We camped here and drove back and forth. It was a pleasant drive. The weekends are packed. Try the ribs at Hillsdale Bank BBQ. There are trails to walk or bike. After viewing the closeup campgrounds, we would stay here again. You will need a state park sticker, $4.50/ night or $24 annual.

You need a state park sticker and to reserve on line will cost another $8.50. Great place to hike and bike. Lots of open space and birds. Former home of author Fredrick Mannfred is located on south side of this 1500+ acre park. Swimming hole, and buffalo herd is also here. It is not far from the Jeffery Petrographs (30 miles). Would stay again if traveling this direction. Not far from Gariston SD where Jesse James is supposed to have jumped the Rock River on horseback.

This is a heavily used campground being close to Madison. We had some trouble to find a spot for our 32 foot 5th wheel and tow vehicle. The ranger had a funny policy of find your site and then go back and see if it had been reserved. Not far from the Blue Mounds cave which is just ok, but do go see the Mustard Museum in Mt Hoerb, and the Artisian Gallery there. A trip to the Norweigian place is neat too. This campgrounds is a good place for smaller RVs and tents.

Beautiful, newly redone, fees will be $20 in 2007. Great lake for fishing, but you will need a boat. Sites are all spacious with privacy because of the forest. Not far from the Wolf River, ideal for rafting and canoeing. We will go back with more family and stay a week. Not very busy after labor day. Maybe 20 or so sites with electrical. A few sites will take something bigger than 32 feet.
