Great spot for an overnight. Very friendly owner. Well taken care of grounds. Lots of open spaces and many shaded with large walnut trees. Good gravel interior roads. Most sites are grass. Very little road noise. We will camp here again. Lots of places to eat dinner and breakfast in area.

Rough entrance and exit near office. You will bottom out if you don't take it sideways. This campground is a big parking lot with scattered trees. Very little shade. Camp on the right side as the views of the St. Louis arch are spectacular. Sites are not level. And on left side they are very tight and short. The location is why you are at this campground. You can walk or bike over bridge to the arch and other site seeing or take you vehicle. The campground is secure, but don't be walking around outside of the park or around East St Louis. We have camped here many times and will do so again.

Yes, road noise and poor, dirt, interior roads. Most sites did not look level. Very tight spaces. This campground said it had big rig access. They do not. It is way too tight. Stagnant pond on grounds. We drove in and drove right back out.

Very friendly staff. Very little road noise. Good dirt and gravel interior roads site was level. Campground is kept very clean and well manicured. Downside is the long freight trains that are parallel to campground. Pretty loud, but they are going slow so not so bad, with windows closed. The tiny town of Paxico has 3 amazing antique stores one of which is staggering and filled with a lot of great stuff. Definitely worth a visit.

Easy access from highway. Some road noise. No trees, all gravel and dirt interior roads. Dusty and dreary. Good for overnight, but cost of $36 seemed high. I do not smoke, but owner reiterated 7 times that this was a smoke free campground. On the plus side the Colonial Steakhouse, right at entrance, had superb fried chicken and buffet with good food and a good breakfast.

Asphalt interior roads and gravel sites. Patios with most sites and some have wrought iron furniture. Friendly staff. Nice clubhouse if you have a group for get togethers or barbeques. They have a full kitchen for use, as well. We come here often and this year it is better then ever. They are serious about being dog friendly. Very nice, very large dog area with places for one to sit while dogs play, also great hiking/dog walk (gravel) around entire campground. Try to get a site on the outside edge - as the sunsets are spectacular. Views of mountains, as well. No trees equals great satellite.

This campground is right on the border of NM and CO. It is at an elevation of 7800 ft. The exit (#460) shares with the weigh station heading south. GPS says to go another 8 miles so be watchful. Good gravel interior roads and sites. No grass at all, basically a big parking lot. The views are spectacular. Opt for the back in sites if you are staying longer than an overnight. Staff was friendly. Positioned well between Trinadad and Raton. Did I mention the spectacular views? We will camp here again.

Super roads in this state park all asphalt. Sites are large with concrete pads. Patios are crushed gravel dirt and bordered with concrete. Large picnic table. Fireplace with grill. Many sites with well developed trees for shade and many without for satellite, but you reserve through Reserve America and they don't have info on which are good for your desires. Rate is great till you remember that you need a $9/day pass for the park. Very large, clean, well maintained park with great biking, boating and walking jogging. Very close to Denver, with lite rail option. Excellent big rig access, but be careful at entrance gate.

Very good interior roads; dirt, gravel mix. Pads are concrete with metal umbrella shade/wind protector over picnic table, fireplace with grill. Great satellite equals very few trees. Entrance to park is 1.5 miles off I-25, but CG sits very close to highway as you enter you loop back towards. We saw many people fishing. Good walking trails. Twelve miles to Boulder, 20 miles plus to Denver. Excellent big rig access.

Great overnight spot. Interior roads and sites are very fine crushed stone. Good satellite capability. Pull throughs are very long. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Utilities grouped well for motorhomes and trailers. Best part is that it is a mile off the highway, so very little road noise. Take a drive to Lake Ogallala, lots of antiques stores and a stupendous donut shop called donuts in paradise or something like that.

Entrance to park is very tight. If there is anyone on their way out of the CG, wait for them to clear the light then make the turn. Some asphalt interior but mostly gravel and dirt. Sites are close together. Near two highways. Very loud. Staff was friendly and eager to please. Proximity to Lincoln is very good. They have a pool and were having bison burgers for $7.50 that night and pancakes for breakfast. Good place if you have kids. We would try another CG as an overnight.

Asphalt interior roads. Concrete pads. Utilities all together on drivers side rear. Very clean and organized park with lots of grass, ponds with fountains and little connector bridges. Pond may be stocked as we saw people fishing in them. Corn fields all around, wide open space. Satellite and AT&T very good signals. Nice community room in center. They have monthly rates at $425 including utilities - wow! We were here 2 nights, but could stay longer. Des Moines is up and coming with many fun shops and restaurants in the "East End". Check about construction in area before you come, as your navigation won't take you the right way

Broken pavement interior roads. This is a mobile home park with many transient renters. They have about 5 open sites that can accept RVs. To access these sites one must go up on a 6" curb and over a sidewalk to a concrete pad. Electricity was very good. Many trees for shaded sites. Many local TV channels. Great location for using train into Chicago, just 4 miles by car with free parking then 41 miles by train at $7.25. Front desk person was very accommodating and had someone help us to our site. I don't think there were any bathrooms. but they did have laundry facilities and a store

This is an awesome CG, just our kind of place. Easy parking for our 45 ft MH. All sites have full hook ups and 30 and 50 amp poles. At $21 per night hard to complain. They don't take reservations. We came on a Monday before 2 pm and there were many available sites, 1/2 full by evening. On Tuesday the CG was 3/4 full. All are back ins. Water connection is far and you may need 2 hoses. Many hiking trails and a lake (about a 3/4 mile walk or a 5 min drive) with many activities including boat rental and swimming. If you like frisbee golf there is a very challenging course. We would come here again.

We have stayed here before but with a 40 ft RV. This time we called to see if try could accommodate a 45 ft. They said they only had a few sites for that size and that they were all reserved but that several of their 40 foot sites would work. They were nice and eager to help. Unfortunately when we arrived they had not saved a 50 amp site per our request. This CG only has limited 50 amp sites. We stayed for 2 nights on 30 amp. During the heat of the summer and with an all electric coach this does not work out well. The CG was full with lots of seasonals and sites were very messy and cluttered. We won't stay here again with this size motorhome.

This is a great park for a few nights. We don't use a lot of services at CGs and don't like to overpay when were not going to use them. This CG is well located away from road noise, good WiFi, and clear skies for satellite in lower area. Very nice grass areas for playing ball with the dog and easy access to I-70 and I-76. 45 minute drive to downtown Pittsburgh and many other small towns to visit.

Very friendly guy at the front desk and they escorted us to our site. We stayed in the newer section with a concrete pad that was not long enough for our 45 foot MH and car. This new area is very close to I-95 so the road noise is very loud. Have stayed here before but will not stay in the new section plus the cost was too high. Prices should be lower in the winter when there are no facilities to use

We were here during a snow/ice storm. Overall the place looked fine. Some road noise from I-95 and some concern with the seasonal people. Still has the KOA feel. Partial gravel/dirt sites, pooling of water. Fine for an overnight.

This is not a campground but has full hookup sites for people coming for service, trades and purchases. We traded our Country Coach for a Tiffin Allegro Bus. We stayed in their campground while our coach was getting additional items put on. So if you need good honest service for your coach, this is a good place.

Good Park: we have a 44' MH and the campsite was spacious. The upper lot is where you want to be. The lower sites are small with no view of anything. The entrance from the road is very tight with telephone poles and wires, then the entrance after you check in is very tight with one of those gates that lift up automatically when you put a card reader in it. For a big rig you will want to be very careful. Lastly the dump station is next to the lift gate so if someone is dumping it is very difficult to come and go. Overall, it is a good place for a few nights stay and the park was clean.

This is just an overnight if you are in the area. Close to the highway with a lot of road noise. We have a 44 foot MH and we did not fit well in the site they gave us, and the sites are grassy/broken concrete. Be careful at the entrance as there is a considerable dip where the driveway and road meet, our tow bar scraped.

This is a typical KOA, the sites are tight but our big rig fit easily in our site and we got WiFi and satellite very well. Most of the seasonal campers are in another area which is nice for them and us. The best parts of this CG is the location, very convenient to the highway, great fried chicken at the office, even the locals buy here and best of all there is a terrific walking path that is being renovated along the CG and starts at the visitors' center. They are putting a lot of effort into this path. The birding and nature is terrific. We saw beavers, all kinds of ducks and many birds. This path is great for biking, walking and jogging. Lastly Butte is a wonderful historic city with great architecture and old town feel. We will definitely come back to Butte and stay at the KOA

Super friendly staff, and very informative with Sheridan. Peter took quite a bit of time showing me on the city map where to drive, what to do and where to eat. Great shopping street in this historic town. CG sites were too crowded for our big rig. We opted for the 2nd choice site since our neighbor would have had to pull his awning in so we could put out our slide. We noticed that they had to do this later for another RV. We will stay here again.

Fine place for an overnight, definitely a trailer park, but residents were fine with overnighters. No place to walk a dog. If you have to stop and want to see Billings then this will do and is a good location. Very friendly staff, no road noise.

Fine place as an overnight or 2 nights, with an indoor swimming pool. The KOA is actually in Bar Nunn which is a very small and poor community. Casper is a nice town and there is a great walking, jogging and biking path that goes for miles through Casper. Avoid the recommended restaurant within walking distance, it is a bar with smoking. And do not fill up at the gas station at the exit, since I am fairly sure we got some water with our diesel. We would stay here again

Very nice CG with full hookups and huge sites. The location is fabulous. Amenities are abundant. Walking, hiking, jogging, birding, etc. Very popular CG so definitely make a reservation. We will stay here again

Not acceptable even as an overnight, we did not feel safe. Many transient type people coming and going at all hours of the night. Sites are overgrown and broken pavement is evident. Entrance is very steep, do not use the first entrance for coming or going. The only nice part was the friendly staff and the town is quite cute and historic. There was another CG behind another hotel off the same exit down the road (to the right rather then the left at the gas station) which we will try the next time. We will NOT stay here again

Very clean, well run CG. For the high desert you can not ask for too much more. Spectacular 360 degree views of all surrounding mountains. Great location at the end of route 599 which is the loop road around Santa Fe and right off I-25. If you are coming for the opera this is the location as you do not need to get involved in any of the city traffic and all those strip malls. We love this park for the wonderful views and the clubhouse has a full professional kitchen if you need it for a function it is free of charge. We will stay here again

Very good overnight, friendly staff and clean CG. Unbelievable gift store, I am not sure how they could sell enough to break even, it is incredible how much stuff is in there. Also the owner must love signs as there are signs everywhere in the CG. Specifically about dogs and where they are not allowed. Lovely center garden with water features although it is all fenced in and does not encourage you to walk in and enjoy. Also all the sites have picket fences separating each sites, although wide enough for our 4 slides, but still strange. We will stay here again.

Very clean friendly CG, no amenities, great for 2 or 3 nights stay to see Brick town and the memorial. The staff was extremely nice and went out of his way to highlight places to see and restaurants to try. Very easy on and off highway and far enough away that there is no road noise. We will stay here again.

This CG would be packed if it had sewer hookups. They were installing new bathrooms when we visited. Burns park is very large, if you like biking, hiking, walking, tennis, golf, soccer, birding, etc you will like the immensity of this park. They even have 3 separate enormous fenced dog runs down by the river. Very easy access off the highway, some road noise can be heard. And yes you do need to drive the wrong way to dump, i would not have been happy if another RV was trying to exit as I was coming around the wrong direction with my 42 foot MH. We will stay here again.

Probably not the greatest overnight as it is 2 miles off the exit, and where the entrance is nicely landscaped the road to driveway is too steep and big rigs will scrape as you will see on the pavement. Do not turn right as you leave the park or you will surely do damage to your vehicle. The CG is nice and the amenities are great although we did not use them and for an overnight would opt for another CG. Too far to Nashville, but we did drive around Lebanon where we found a movie theater.

This is a fine overnight stop, if you do not mind a 30 amp service site number 20 puts you all by yourself with a very large lawn space and a view of the highway. This campground is set back far enough that there is minimal road noise. The staff was very friendly. As a bonus there is a truck gas stop just before you get back on the highway with nice fast pumps. We will stay here again.

Great for an overnight. They have bathrooms and showers, although we did not go into them. They have no other amenities. But for an overnight you do not need anything but good level site long enough that you do not have to unhook, no road noise and inexpensive. You get all 3 with this campground. We will stay here again.

They do not have big rig sites here as advertised, when and if you can get into the site it will accommodate a big rig with 4 slides but getting into the site is a problem. All the paved roads are too narrow and there is not enough room to negotiate into the sites. We did finally maneuver into a site after trying 3 different sites. We have air leveling for our rig, although it still took much time to get level. All the sites seem to require many leveling blocks. There were cigarette butts all over our site. The management was not friendly, although we were there the day after Labor Day - maybe they were wiped out. $52/day is ridiculous even for a KOA. We will not stay here again.

For an overnight this may be an okay campground, many seasonal campers. Most of the overnighters are put in the lower lot. If it has rained, which is what our case was, then all the rain runs down from the upper to the lower lot which is a problem since the roads are all dirt with a mix of gravel. Puddles and ruts everywhere and mud, lots of mud. The lower lot is surrounded by a neighborhood that lets their dogs stay out all night and bark. The touted Pit BBQ was good although they had no ribs on a Saturday night. The Brisket and the pulled pork was a good backup. We would not stay here again.

The location of this campground gets it an 8 from me - wow. The campground is not much, it really is a marina and a parking lot. I don't think they have bathrooms and showers and no other facilities. They do have full hookups, the spaces are tight but not so bad, plenty of room for our 4 slides and still an outside space. You don't come here for the campground you come for the location. You can walk to everything and there is a great lakeside path for jogging walking and bikes. We would definitely stay here again

Very well maintained campground, most sites have good views of the inner lake. You will definitely want to call ahead if you are a big rig. There are very few sites that can accommodate a 40 plus footer and these sites are pitched improperly making it difficult to level. I can not imagine if this campground were full, which I am sure it often is in July and August, the sites are close together. Magnificent views from Brockaway Mountain Road, drive it in early evening for the sunset - unbelievable, also see the Fort.

I give this campground a 7 which may be generous, but the location and view of the lake is quite lovely. The hookups are definitely a problem, but knowing this from reading other reviews helped us. Definitely go to the site before setting up. The staff gave us a site that we would not have been able to get all of our hookups. Also make sure the ground is firm. Our RV is big and heavy and we would have had problems in some of the sites. We would stop here again knowing the perimeters.

Good location in relation to town. They have a well maintained path from the campground to another path that goes all the way downtown (about 2 miles), good for walking or jogging but not bikes. The campground is dusty and the sites are close together. All the sites are in the woods but a few you may be able to get satellite, check the site before setting up some are better then others. A friendly staff and very few items in the store. We would camp here again.

This is a resort and one can buy a site. Traverse City is worth the visit, we had a terrific drive on the west peninsula, very scenic. I can not think of anything bad to say about this campground, I would give it a 10.5 if it were not cold and rainy. They even have a 5th wheel and trailer section and another section for motorhomes. Very well maintained and right next to three golf courses - very nice.

Very impressive State Park, well run and well maintained. We camped on the inner lake loop. Very quiet with a wonderful boardwalk for fishing, walking and bird viewing. Many terrific hiking trails and a very picturesque lighthouse. Great campground if you like the outdoors and wildlife. The interior roads are not setup for our 40 plus foot RV that is also very heavy. Make sure to let them know your size of rig and then be patient and careful driving in.

Good location if you want to see both Detroit and Ann Arbor. The campground is dusty and needs a little more care. The people were friendly. Two great features: one, they are on their own lake and have a well maintained path all the way around which we walked and jogged many times and two, a great field out front where our dog got to play ball. Most of the sites are in the woods near the lake.

This lives up to its name as a Resort. If you love roller coasters and such you will love this campground. We did not use the amusement park since it was cold and rainy. Opting instead for a lovely drive along the lake. The campground is well manicured and very clean. We had a tire problem and the Resort maintenance came and helped us - wow, I had to twist his arm to give him a tip. 2 complaints would be that it is loud due to the roller coasters, and you can not get a lake site since they have cabins all along the lake front

This is our kind of campground. We do not need all the services that many enjoy. We like a clean friendly campground with asphalt and/or concrete and a ample grassy space at each site. Very close to I-40 just off of I-35 and no highway noise. This is perfect if you enjoy a city setting. The campground is 10 minutes from "Bricktown", the happening area in the downtown. And 10 minutes to the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial. Tom the campground manager went out of his way to give us all kinds of info about the city and his favorite restaurants. We almost did not stay here because Trailer Life gave it a low rating. We are glad we took the chance.

After reading many comments on Amarillo campground we chose this one. We must be crazy since we did not agree with most of the high rated comments. The park is friendly and clean and the little oasis in the middle is well maintained. But the campground is mostly dirt and gravel with small strips of grass. They have slated wood fences that separate the sites making one feel closed in. The highway noise is evident. If you have a pet like us, everywhere you turn it says, no dogs. We will not return to this campground.

We go to this campground every summer and some winters on the way to Mexico. A privately family owned campground. They are very friendly and go way out of their way to help. We mostly like that there are not a lot of extra services, although they do have a great place for rally/groups to congregate. A great place to stay with beautiful views. 2 negatives are the laundry services are $2/load-seems high and they are not very strict about the dog rules, but on the flip side they are very pet friendly and have a wonderful dog/people path around the entire campground.
