Sorry, other than "nice owners" and "near town", etc., there's not much positive I can say about this campground. Wi-Fi is only available near the office. I had only 30 amps at my site and the circuit breaker was on the other side of my neighbor's site, in his electrical box. My sewer connection was 20' behind my electrical box and to be centered on my site I would have needed at least 30' of sewer hose. Many other sites had this strange, unusable hookup arrangement. My neighbor's sewer connection was 14' from my entrance door, not a pleasant location. My site was long enough, but very narrow. The picnic tables here are only 4 feet long. I'm sure there are some better sites in the park, but my grandkids said, "Let's not come here anymore".

This campground is difficult to rate. Many of the pull-throughs are not suitable for big rigs. Many of the sewer connections are on the wrong side or too far away to be usable except for a very long hose. Also, there is a firing range near by so the sounds of gunshots are heard most of the day. Some of the sites are quite nice and roomy, private and shady. If you are visiting the Bull Run Battlefield, it is very close by. Choose your site carefully, ask to look at it before committing.

Only 10 sites with electric, none have their own water. Fill up before you get here. This is a pretty little park, has a stream and waterfalls for hiking.

Very nice, clean and spacious sites. We had shaded back-in sites for our 38' 5W and had plenty of room. If the new wi-fi would reach all the sites, we would have given this park a 10.

Friendly folks at the office, but that's all that can be said. Our site wasn't very level, in a big grass field. No shade at all. No table, no fire rings. Grass was tall and damp (from previous rains?). $$ for a weak wi-fi signal. FLIES all around!...perhaps from the stables and livestock sheds.

I'm surprised this campground has not been reviewed before. This is as good as it gets! Very well run campground operated by the City of Mitchell. You pay only for what you use. Basic $14. Water and sewer $1 each. Elec. $3.50 and cable $2.50. So full hookup with cable is only $22. Just on the north side of town, about 10 mins from I-90. Some small sites for tents and small RVs, some pull throughs for large rigs.

Very clean, nice folks, very helpful. Beautiful views and only 10 minutes from the Battlefield. Easy entry, well marked. Only 400 yards of well maintained gravel to entrance, remainder paved.

Very peaceful, yet close to town. Very roomy sites. Good rental rates for boats on the lake. Some shade would have made this a 10.

Located approx. 190 miles north of Stewart/Hyder on Cassiar Hwy. (Rt.37) Rustic, could use some cleanup. Some beautiful lakeside sites. Crystal clear water. Pet llamas walking through the sites are a different touch. Wi-fi doesn't reach all sites.

Compared to many other AK campgrounds, this one is good. Open sites or shaded, more elbow room than most. Strong wi-fi signal. Most convenient to the bears viewing area.

"Sister" park with Guggeville RV. Strong, free WiFi and much more "elbow room" than the RV park in town. Only 1.5 miles to town so it's walkable if you want. Be sure to take the 15 minute drive to the top of Midnight Dome for a GREAT view of the valley and town.

Free dry camping with fill up. Fuel is $2 cheaper than Dawson, so we saved $$$ on fuel and had a free site with free WiFi. Free gold panning and great people, too. If you don't dry camp, a fill up will save you $5 off the hookup sites. This is the campground at the bottom of the hill just before the one-lane bridge. Very good food at the Chicken Cafe just up the hill. This is a no brainer.

One of the better AK campgrounds. We were parked overlooking a marsh and saw MANY bald eagles, usually 4-5 over head most times. An easy drive into Homer for those who want crowds or halibut fishing. A boat ramp area about a mile away gives access to the beach where vehicles are permitted to drive.

Another tight gravel parking lot. Wi-fi is weak, wouldn't work from my site. It is quiet and friendly, though.

Very similar to Whistlers. Entry is just across the road into Jasper. Most sites were occupied, so we settled for boondocking rather than the electric only sites in the "parking lot". Fire permit of $7 required if you want a campfire, but that includes all the wood you want to burn.

Nice for the area. Frequent trains run just 200 feet away. Strong, free wi-fi and cable TV. Long, shady sites behind the motel. Clean and safe feeling here. Indoor heated pool.

Located 28 miles east of Williston off Rt. 1804. Third ranked golf course in the state of ND. If you're not an avid golfer, don't go here. No convenience store or gas station within 28 miles. Great people, big sites right next to pro shop.

We went before the season opened, so we got the $10 rate. Town wasn't "open" either, but looks like it would be fun in the summer. If you're a golfer, don't miss Bully Pulpit, it's a great course. Campground is right next to the south unit entrance to Theodore Roosevelt Nat. Park. Very good wildlife viewing.

Clean, safe neat the middle of town. Miles of good walking and bike trails. Traffic noise from the interstate will bother some folks.

We stayed in "Headquarters" campground. It's not as private as Chinetgo, but not bad. It's location is very handy to golf and views. It takes only 5 minutes to ride down the hill to the town of Alma. For those needing internet access, the Information Center in Alma offers DSL service at nominal rates.

We'll echo all the above and add that now the park has free WFI. We're very pleased and extended our stay.

Granted, we lucked into one of the sites right on the creek. Very quiet, all we could hear were the birds chirping and the fish jumping. Our taste runs to rustic rather than RV resorts, so this place rates a 10. The new owners (one year) are very friendly and helpful. They've also added free (secure) Wi-Fi throughout the park.

Nice, quiet campground. New Wi-Fi had a strong signal. Allows campfires. Only drawback for us was no TV.

For golfers, this is hard to beat. Very nice park, friendly and helpful staff, and an upscale golf course just 200 yards away. The RV/Golf packages are a great value and include (among other perks), unlimited golf and range balls. The prime rib at the restaurant is very good. We enjoyed the week so much that we signed up for another.
