What a great campground. Sites are gravel with gravel between you and the next rig, but grass behind the rig. The Campground is in a large park with the lake, paved walking paths, a beach and golf course. No sewer, but a large easy access dump station is available. $17 is the senior rate. Otherwise $18. Convenient to Topeka. Would definitely stay here again.

This RV Park is perfectly acceptable as an overnight park or as a base to visit North Platte. We stayed 2 nights. Sites are long, but close together, but it didn't matter while we were there because there weren't many customers. The lakefront sites would be better for a longer stay, but I don't know if they are 50 AMP. Sites appear to be dirt, but I think it is actually a mixture of dirt and sand. No ruts were visible so it must hold up well to rain - but then there hasn't been any this year! You do need a mat to help keep the dirt out of the motorhome, but it isn't bad. Camp host was helpful and leads you to your site. I would stay here again.

I'd give it a 9 if they had sewer connections. Hosts were friendly and helpful. County supervisors were also friendly and helpful. Used as a base for Chicago, but it is a long drive into the city. The Kennedy Expressway is often slow. Will stay here again.

Passport Rate. This is a really nice country style campground. Large site all grass. Even with recent rains the grass held firm. Owners very nice. Would definitely go back. Detroit Lakes is a nice little town.

We have stayed at this campground in past years. It suffers from a lack or maintenance. Poor gravel roads with pot holes. Gravel sites are over grown with weeds. We choose a 30 amp site and the wiring looks very old and the power is low, 109 volts with a 7amp draw. I would not stay here again.

We loved this park. We saw no earwigs. Has great views and good sites. Sites are laid out to give views of the lake.

Yes this is a large gravel lot with RV site. But they are large and most of them seem fairly level (there appear to be a few sites that good be hard to level). Good "base" of operations for the area. Not a "destination" type place.

Good for a quick overnight stay. Lacking in amenities. Larger rigs should avoid the first row because of a very tight turn to get out. Bigger rigs should proceed to the far side.

This was a nice clean park. Good for an overnight or a stay in the Missouri area. Sites were fairly level. We we able to park a big rig with toad attached for a overnight stay.

This park is in disrepair. Sites are narrow, unlevel and suffer from a need for gravel to fill the ruts and level. Grass between the site is terrible. The are large rodent holes, tire ruts and mud. The grass has not been mowed. We could not level without digging a hole for one tire. Would not return. The park roads also need repair. This definitely not a park for big rigs.

Park was clean. Our site was large, but some looked a little close side to side. Our site was not level side to side. I had to try several locations before I found one that our leveling systems could actually level the rig. Most sites looked more level than ours. Lacking on amenities, but this was OK, because we were here for Glacier National Park. It was a good base.

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. Great space, great views. Very quiet, yet close to shopping and restaurants. Campground B hosts are top notch and really nice people.

We stay here two weeks. The campground is clean and quite. It is a good location to tour both Portland and the Columbia Gorge. They have weekly and monthly rates. Access from the road is NOT marked. No signage at all. One lane 20 ton max bridge to park entrance. The office is open only from 11am to 5pm. No really amenities other than small river beach.

We camp here frequently. The sites are large and well spaced. Many sites have beautiful views of the mountains. The hiking trails into the Catalina Mountains range from short and easy to long and fairly strenuous.

We have stayed here many times. Great base for visiting Tucson. Beautiful hikes right from the park. Yes the hike to Romero Pools is strenuous but we seniors have made it several times. There is also a "loop" hike that is shorter and much less strenuous. The new section has 70 plus long pull though sites. Seem secluded, but you are only five minutes from shopping and restaurants.

This is a fairly large park with many seasonals. The short stay campers are at least pretty much grouped together and the park has a friendly feel. The staff is helpful in parking you which is necessary as the roads are tight, as are the sites, for big rigs (doable but if your toad is attached you better take the line into all turns or your going to have a problem). Sites are dirt but most look fairly level. It is OK as a base to visit Ruidoso, but not a place to really enjoy the outdoors. The store has RV parts only. No food or even newspapers. We travel in a forty foot motorhome.

This is a great State Park. Some of the loops had sewer and some did not. Many sites are double sites. A double site is double wide, but both sides back in to the site. The rig on the right side has its power on the wrong side of the rig at the very back. As our power connection is at the back this was no problem for us, but if your power is more mid vehicle then you may need an extension. The left side of the site is usually much deeper so the rigs are not side by side. Many of the sites, both single and double, are large. The roads are concrete and the sites are concrete. The lake is all around the RV loops so many sites are near the water. This is a good base for the Show Low area, fishing or just a nice quite place to relax. I'd give it a ten except for the double sites. One problem is that it is very popular so don't arrive friday night in season expecting to get a site.

This is a true desert campground in a beautiful setting. Most of the site are well spaced. The park has paved roads with gravel sites. Some sites can handle 40 foot rigs (maybe half). Electric is 30 amp. water is available near many sites. Many sites can reach a water tap with 100 ft of hose (you can hookup to fill, but can not remain hooked up). There is a large dump(2) station and separate water station(2). This park is on the west side just south of the Desert Museum and Saguaro National Park (West). Tents are allowed, some sites are tent only, but there are no showers. It is remote from shopping or restaurants, but the location is beautiful and so is the park. If it had full hookups it would be a 10 in my book, but you have to love the desert and be willing to do without the pool and other typical campground amenities. This part of the desert is full of Saguaros.

This is a large level gravel lot. Sites have a tree between them and little else except the hookups. Check-in is friendly and quick. This is a clean park. Yes it is near a busy rail line. For the price this park is hard to beat. Hard to rate, but we will stay here again. This was our second stop at this RV Park, both for one night.

This is a ten to fifteen year old campground that added a small Hotel and now has added a new RV section. The new section has 50amp/water/sewer. No cable or phone. The older section had cable wiring, but I can not confirm if the cable is operative. The new section is Big Rig accessable, but go slow. The roads are gravel/dirt and uneven. On check-in they take your money and give nothing, not even a park brochure. We had pets with us, but I can't confirm for sure that they allow pets. I assume they do, but the subject never came up during registration. This RV Park is ok for an overnight stay. The road (dirt) between the old RV park/Hotel and the newer RV section leads to an area of housing that creates a fair amount of traffic.

My rating reflects use by a couple with a 40 ft diesel Motorhome. We asked for a site suitable for a 40ft Motorhome and were assigned to a "pull through" with 50amp power/water /sewer. The road to this site was narrow and included a sharp 180 turn that required a three point turn. Luckily I had unhooked the Jeep, but the next couple did not unhook and had fight to unhook on the turn. Also I would not call it a pull through for a large rig. I saw one fifth manage to pull through, but they had nobody in the site next to them. Everybody else, including myself, had to back out. There just isn't enough room to make it a pull though. On the plus side the WIFI was very good. Signal showed weak, but it maintained a good connection at all times.
