First time in a LARGE snowbird campground. But we thought it was good. In fact, it was a great experience. The other 'residents' were one of the most friendly groups we have ever experienced. Resort had more amenities than we have ever seen. Two great pools and lots of activities. Sites were a bit close but not as close as some we have had. Neighbors were great and I liked the individual trash and recycle bins. Two laundry rooms made it great. Never had to wait for a washer or dryer. We would stay here again.

Just did not care for this campground. Camp hosts not all that helpful or friendly and mostly sold wood. Information said site would accommodate a 40 foot motor home but we had to rearrange and move the coach our second day there in order to park car so it would not be on tree roots. Very dense trees coverage so no satellite. Nice hike around the lake and other campers were friendly so our stay was fine. Just probably wouldn't do it again there. Oregon has a lot of nice state parks. We went through a number of campgrounds on day trips from there and would pick another one next time.

The price was right and we stayed for days. Our first impression of the place was that it was run down. Despite that, there were some signs of maintenance being done - the lawn was mowed and the fence and building might have had recent paint. The laundry was good - $3 for a load to wash/dry. The location was good. We took day trips into the redwoods from here. But we didn't like the area. Seems as if the town is still on the rebound and trying to improve things. Lots of poverty and homeless people so we felt uneasy the whole time there. Not sure if we'd do it again.

Decent campground with adequate facilities. We have full hookups (water/sewer/50 amp electric) and the camp sites are fine. They are level and there is plenty of room between sites. The grass is mowed, which is always a plus. At $26/night it was a good stopover. We stayed two nights as we make our way down Highway 101 from Oregon. Glad we found this place; some of the others that we have seen don't look that good. It was Saturday night at the races which was very noisy until about 10 PM. But that didn't overshadow the fact that we would stay here again.

Nice facility with good hookups and lots of spaces. It was almost full the three days we stayed here. Easy access off 101 and check-in was friendly and hassle free. The campground is near the back side of the Newport bay and near the boat docks. It also has a view of the historic bridge into the bay. The facilities are good, with the laundry very good. $1 for wash and the same to dry. We would stay here again.

This was a tough stay primarily because there was no Internet or cell phone coverage. Although the campground was at the convergence of the John Day River and the Columbia River - there was not much happening. It was a 15-20 minute drive to the nearest Wi-Fi at McDonalds. Gladly, the gate was not locked at night as we have experienced at other COE parks. I had a teleconference with the East Coast at 8 AM their time so needed to be out of the park and into the nearest town for my cell phone coverage. The park itself was OK. Level sites, decent spacing between campsites, and our water and 50 amp service worked fine. I just hated to be so isolated. We think we'd pass on this place the the next time around.

We got a good site on a run-down place. We were there for one night and wanted to see the old fort. We wanted 50 amp to run the a/c. The site was spacious, and it served our needs. It definitely was not a destination type place but completely adequate. The campground host was nice and helpful. It was OK for a night, and we'd stay there again.

It was an OK place to stay. There was some maintenance that was evident on the gravel roads throughout the camp ground. It was a dated park, but we had no issues and would stay there again. We would stay again.

Nice campground with very friendly staff. They printed out directions to a restaurant for us and told us about the bike trails when we checked in. Very nice. The sites were fine with plenty of space between them. It was a convenient place to stay while we visited the State Capitol and saw friends. We would stay there again.

Good overnight stay with some great views. Campground is a little worn for being 11 years old. Sites were fine. Sprinkler system worked in some places, not in others, and you can see where by the green grass next to the brown grass. Needs some help in the maintenance area. It could be a better park. It was only an over night stay for us, so it worked fine. Buffet dinner was good at the casino. One of the nicer casinos we have seen. We would stay again.

Another nice KOA park. The staff was friendly and hard working. The camp sites were well maintained and groomed due to the hard working staff. They were always working around the campground and helping folks, cleaning sites, escorting RVs to sites and even had time for a great pancake breakfast each day we were there. Nice place to stay while seeing the beautiful Columbia Gorge area. We would visit again.

Excellent RV park. This is not only well maintained, it is manicured! Good space between sites with mowed grass and lots of beautiful flowers throughout the campground. Very friendly staff, and nice facilities. Great laundry: $1.50/wash, $1.25/dry. Two laundry rooms, one on each end of the campground, lots of machines. Small workout room, but great equipment. These folks know how to run a great campground. A nice surprise and a perfect place to stay for a tour of the capitol. We would stay here again.

We liked being here for a few days notwithstanding the guy that runs the place. The campsite itself was good, the price was good and the location was fine. We were next to the base running track and gym which was convenient. The base has a bike path that allowed me to ride a 14-15 mile circuit which I enjoyed. The site was on a concrete pad, had a full hookup and very adequate; though not what I would call a 'destination'. We would stay here again.

I rated this place pretty high because of the price ($10) for full hookups and the fact there is free laundry and close access to the fitness center. This has been a very good stop over for us for a week. My WiFi/internet and satellite TV worked well here. The staff were very friendly and helpful when we made the reservations and checked in. I was able to wash and wax my RV which was nice. The full hookups included concrete pad. The campground/parking is on the edge of the compound and is what I would call a modest facility. But it works for us and we would come here again.

Great overnight stay. The price was higher than we like to pay but we needed 50 amp service for our two air conditioners. Plus it was in the middle of the high season. Staff was very friendly and helpful and hard working. The place was well maintained. They had worked on leveling the potholes in the road and most sites were level. Ours was and it was a very enjoyable stopover. We would staff there again.

The place is well located and has very adequate facilities. At $21 a night, the price was right and we had full hookups, a level site, and were ready to go see the sights. We would stay there again.

Good park. Nice place to spend a few days. Campground was well maintained. I was impressed with the grass cutting and the daily maintenance. Really gives the campground a nice look and feel. Campsites are level. Laundry and building are neat and orderly. We would return on our next visit to Fredericksburg. We camped in a 40' motorhome.

This is the place to stay in OKC. They know how to build and run a campground. All the sites are level, most are concrete. This is our second time here. Unlike some others our ratings did not diminish over time. It is still a great place. They went out of their way to be helpful in getting us into a site since ours was occupied late in the day. We appreciated the effort and everyone was happy. We will be back.

Perfect Army COE Park that is run by the city. Lots of of mowed grass. Sites were level. Staff was friendly and helpful. Campground was a little bit away from town so it seemed as if we were in the county. Very pleasant. Shopping was 15 minutes away. Even went to a MLB baseball game to see KC Royals which was only 30 minutes. Very convenient. Lots of interesting museums and things to see in Independence. We would camp here again.

This is a great campground! We will be back if we are anywhere close. The campground host was friendly and helpful. Nice first impression. The campground is well cared for and maintained. The sites are level, the grass is mowed and each site has a fire ring. Campsites have plenty of room: we are 40 feet. The laundry is $1.25 wash and $1.25. Very reasonable. The showers, laundry and safe room (for tornados) is the best we have seen. The city pool is 150 yards away and a great deal at $2 for campers. Glad we found this place.

This RV campground is a nice one. I always love campgrounds that are mowed and well maintained. The sites were not especially spacious, but neither were they tight. It was fine. The laundry was good at $1.25 for washers/ dryers at .75 a load. Sewer, water, and 50 amp were fine. The office staff was nice and friendly at check-in. There were a lot of longer term folks here, but it is a nice place, and they didn't detract from the overall feeling of the park. Plenty of short term folks like us. Long pull through sites were nice. some of the older side were on concrete and a concrete road, but most of the park was a gravel road. Could have run a grader over it once, but they did fill a big pot hole while we were here. Pool was good size. We would come again.

Good park for an overnight stay. We had a lot of other campers rolling in during the evening hours. Pull through sites were spacious and very convenient. The park is big rig friendly. The office staff was helpful and friendly. The park was not real scenic but it was well maintained. The price reflects 4 adults and a Good Sam discount. It was warm so we were glad we could use 50 amp for the A/C. The campground is near I-95 so we could hear the traffic. But is was not a problem. We liked it here and will be back.

Excellent experience. We camped at site #74 and were right on the water. The campsite was level and spacious. There was wood all around for a campfire. The site has a large picnic table, fire ring and a table for the grill. Very nice. The only issue was getting down to the campsite from the road. It was winding and steep. We will be back!

Nice campground. Well maintained and manicured. Some of the sites are not level but ours was no problem. It is very conveniently located near downtown, Costco's and Walmart. I like the campground except for the price. Might try a campground for a lower price next time.

Nice campground. I concur with some earlier reviews. This place is very active and very friendly. We got the 'feel' of the place the first 20 minutes we were here. Easy to meet people and always something going on. Coffee and cookies in the morning. Last night there was some music in the club house/community building. The gravel / dirt loops are in great shape and well maintained. Despite the short pads, they were no problem for our 40' RV. I am always concerned when my wheels are off the ground, but no such problem here. Very nice place in the trees. No TV satellite but each site has cable. Cell phone is not great but still doesn't detract from what we consider to be a great place. We will be back!

We like it here. It has nice clean bathrooms and a great laundry. Most if not all campsites are on a concrete pad, some are near the beach. The front office is very helpful and accommodating. It is a very nice place to spend a few days.

We like the FamCamp at MacDill AFB. The price is right and there are a lot of things to do on base. The camp sites are nothing special; they are adequate. The laundry room, showers and post office facility were good. It is a decent place to stay for the Tampa RV show. The campground had free tickets to the show which was nice. The Sunday church service at the FamCamp was great. We will come back.

Good park if you are retired and elderly. Nice pool and activity room with great library. Laundry is good. We stayed 5 days in dry camping before moving to 110 electrical hookup in overflow area at $12 with water. Running generator for 5 hours during the day was already costing us about $10/day in diesel fuel so we moved. Mostly a park model older retirement community. Did not like the $5 charge to use the dump station. Loved the pool and watching the shuffleboard but decided to move on after 6 days. Not the right place for us, so don't think we will be back.

Modest place to park your RV. Electrical hookups and water in a parking lot near to the lake. The dump station is right there in the gravel parking lot with a blue boy black waste tank to use if desired. Great value and not far from Sebring and Lake Placid, FL. We would come here again.

Campgrounds were spacious and there were a lot of them. The Flamingo NPS park and campground has not fully recovered from the 2005 hurricanes. We went for a 2 hour guided boat tour through the Everglades we highly recommend. We also went to the Visitors Centers and walking trails in the park. But the campground and area was not in very good shape. It was a long way down there from Homestead FL. I don't think we would do it again.

We liked this place and were glad to be able to get a reservation there. It was not far from the Big Cypress Visitor's Center and Shark Valley Visitor's. Both were very interesting. Had a campsite with plenty of space, open and nice. It was on the pond so we had a nice view. We camped in a 40' motor home and would definitely do it again.

It was a lot of money for us to pay for a campsite for 8 days, but we loved every minute of it. People with lots there were friendly even though they knew we were only there for a few days. The pool was great and they had a lot of activities and things to do. We enjoyed spending time with friends who were there for three months. They had a water lot on a lake which was nice. The bike trails near the campground are great! You can bike for 5 miles or 25 miles on great bike trails nearby. The beach is only 5 miles down the road too. We loved this place. We camped in a 40' motor home and will be back!

Very clean and well maintained. Grass was cut, campsites groomed and some paint/maintenance was being done on the covered picnic table roof at each site. Very nice and spacious campsites right on the water. We loved seeing boats go through the locks. My WiFi/internet did not work from Friday afternoon to Monday morning but for some reason came back to life on Monday. A bit remote but we would camp their again. We camped in a 40' motor home.

We were going to stay longer than the minimum 3 days, but we had a weird impression of the place when we first drove in. It is an older park with a lot of park models. It was fairly well taken care of but not our style. The swimming pool was fine and overall it was OK but we did not want to stay there very long. We probably will not be back.

Loved this campground! Sites are wide, easy access and has a great roads for bike riding. Campsites were spacious and well maintained. Showers and restrooms were clean. Even had washer/dryers in each campground loop. Some shade, no issues with tight campsites or narrowness. Beautiful lakes nearby with fishing piers near the campground. Not a surprise FL State Parks were voted best in the nation 2 times! We camped in a 40' class A motor home. We will be back.

Campground was OK. Though it is a bit dated, it is very well maintained. Even with a lot of trees we were able to get DirecTV at site #18. And the narrow campsite and road to the campsite were trimmed back so there were no scratches to the MH. The access to the campsite was tight but manageable. We had a long back in site which was no problem. But the campsite was a little more narrow than we prefer. All in all this is an older campground but it is well taken care of. The park rangers are helpful and courteous. We probably will check out other Florida SP. We probably will not be back.

We really like this older campground. As an Escapees member, we look for parks around the US. This is similar, only larger. It has more sites and a larger clubhouse. The roads are gravel but will maintained. The grass is cut and the clubhouse and office are in good condition. The people at the front office are friendly and helpful and the neighbors at the campsite are like wise friendly. I think it comes with the territory --most Escapees folks are friendly. We can wash our rig here. The scenery is pleasant, the hook ups are fine, and the site is level. The grass is mowed and the place is tidy. Very nice way to spend a few days and enjoy this lifestyle! We will return.

We stayed three days and got a great campsite. We were right on the water and had a campfire. The staff had cut firewood stacked nearby which was a nice touch. The campground had been recently mowed and the grounds were in great shape. The lake was down but we saw a few boaters and fishermen and saw a guy catch a big one 100 yards away. The laundry is good although it is ways from the campground. Plenty of parking and a good turn around point for checking in before heading to the assigned campsite. My Verizon MiFi worked fine. My AT&T did not work. The campground is 35 miles away from Augusta and Fort Gordon so it takes a while to get there. We went downtown to the Visitor Center and played golf at Fort Gordon one day. The golf course is a real gem and was in great shape.

This is a military/DoD campground for active duty and retirees. We camped here in the off season so we it was easy to find a pull through site with access for our TV. I have my own Verizon Wi-Fi which worked fine. Campground and recreation area is very well maintained with grass mowed. A 3 mile Nature Trail circles the lake and it was a nice walk. It has a lot of campsites in the trees with shade but also some pull through sites in the open. The laundry is small but adequate and costs $1 and $1.25 for washer and dryers. Camp sites are mostly level. Need to drive down to the office to register near the lake and it has a turn around drive. We would stay here again.

With our Good Sam Discount it only cost us $25.20/night. It is a GREAT campground. It is located off the main drag in Sieverville along a nice river. There are large grassy site there for extra $$. The regular site we had was nice, level and had adequate space between our neighbors. Full hookups, 50 Amp/water and two (2) sewer line options at each site to hook up the sewer hose. Each site had a campfire ring. The new office had a well stocked campstore and a nice firepit outside with cable TV for some fall football watching on a bigger screen. The campground was not far from the entrance to the Great Smoky Mountains NP. This was a great find and far better than the other two in Pigeon Forge that we looked at while we were there. We will be back. We camped in a 40' MH.

Easy access to campground for military. No need to go through a security gate and mess with the ID each time. The access code provided by the office moves the security gate. The campground is well run. The grass usually gets mowed once a week which is nice. AT&T phone service in that part of VA Beach is week. Mi-Fi works OK. The campground is a converted trailer park which means the sewer connection is directly underneath the back wheels. That is a pain to hook up. All in all, we like the location and set up and would stay here again.

Rate fluctuated because we were on water/electric for a few days, then moved to a full hookup site. We signed up on the waiting list and then declined our first option so we could get a campsite where we also could get satellite TV. We would camp here again and were satisfied with the campground. Some improvements - lots of grass, - well maintained and mowed, - new pavement, - new bathhouse, - laundry has plenty of washers and dryers ($1 each load), - a few new concrete pads, - nice welcoming office area and personnel, - great hiking areas, - nice pond/lake (no boats), - campfires and free wood (which you can collect) Some drawbacks: - no AT&T phone service, - some trees will not allow satellite TV, - one commode in the washroom. We have to drive 3-4 miles to the highway to get phone service or send text messages. But it is manageable.

I don't get the 10 ratings of some earlier reviewers. There were no directional signs that matched up with Woodalls, so we had to back track 5 miles off of I-81, and took exit 57. We had no trouble finding the place but made we wonder. When we got to the office it was perched up on the side of a large hill/parking lot. We climbed up there, parked our 40' motorhome and tow car in the middle of the road in front. We had to unhook (which we were going to do anyway) and back up to get down the hill and follow the golf cart to our site. Office lady was nice enough. When I called for the reservation, I spoke with the call center to someone in NY state. Could not reach the campground. I could not tell from the web site which site we were picking out because the map would not enlarge big enough to read. We decided to pick something and adjust if we needed to at the registration desk. The campground is on the face of a mountain!! Nothing but steep roads to get to one of the 3 camp site areas. About as steep as I'd ever want to climb. Now for the good stuff. The campsites, roads and grounds are all very well maintained. The place was empty. We had our pick of sites. We opted for a back in site to save $5 and it was no problem. The whole campground is terraced and campsites are level. No decent Wi-Fi. There must have been 5 other rigs in the campground of 195 sites and the Wi-Fi was sloooow. Too slow to bother so I used my Verizon Mi-Fi which worked fine. No cable TV here but we were able to get satellite TV. Quite a few trees all around but it wasn't solid, so we were glad for that. Beautiful pool, rec area, showers and laundry for $1.50 a load which was good. Lot of great things about the campground but the fact that it is on the side of a steep mountain means we are going to be riding the brakes getting out of here. I like to talk to someone at the campground when I am making my reservation. Those were the main detractors and why I'd only give it a 6 rating. Not sure we'd be back. $42 (discounted rate) is a lot. We look for $25 campgrounds if at all possible.

The campground was about 6 miles off the main highway. Getting there was no problem but it was a bit hilly with narrow, but well maintained roads. Check in was easy and we unhooked our tow car in a big parking lot. One of the few state campgrounds we've visited that had long campsites for 40' and over rigs. I liked the no pets loop we were one. Trees were nice and it was not too busy for a Monday night. Beautiful pool near the lake a short distance away. We enjoyed a campfire and restful evening. It was worth staying there. This was a good one. We may be back.

Place was OK but older and run down. Staff was OK. If first impressions mean a lot, this one didn't do too well. Front office and store old and cluttered, not real organized. Plenty of hats and T-Shirts but overpriced at $17.00. Not sure why I didn't really care for the place but one issue for me was the roads around the campground. They were full of pot holes. The roads needs an overhaul with lots of gravel. The patchwork and repairs haven't worked too well. We moved over to maybe the only site that has satellite access for TV (#39). Small swimming pool looked good. We have a nice view of the pond. Not sure we'd be back.

Great campground. Roads getting there were under repair from the freeway but it was no problem. The campground is excellent! Hosts escorted us to our site. Office staff was helpful and very professional. Nice store with lots of amenities. Beautiful pool, campsites are level with pavers, swing, fireplace, and table with 4 chairs. Very nice! The roads were gravel but were excellent! No potholes and grass was all mowed and in great shape beautiful flowers all around. The pool is a real plus and has a lot of room. One of the very best campgrounds we have visited. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 was that it didn't have a scenic view. But we would definitely revisit if we are in the area. The cost was worth every penny!

Great campground and close to Bangor. Not too far from a Bangor Tire Store and truck stop where we took the motorhome in to get a slow leak in the tire fixed. This campground is impressive. The staff is very professional, efficient, friendly, and provide all kinds of great information. The office has shirts/T-shirts for sale as well as some RV supplies. They also have some handy information including directions/notes on how to get to the nearest Wal-Mart, shopping, and Stephen King house. Plus there is a great restaurant next door for some local cuisine (ask for the 10% coupon in the office). We were only here for a couple of days but it is a nice campground to stay in. Most of the sites are pull-throughs. All have plenty of space and grass lawns. The whole campground is run by people that know what they are doing! Very, very nice and one that we will come back to.

We loved this place! We will be back! Our site was barely long enough for our 40' rig but it ended up being fine. Be sure to mention your length when you make a reservation so you get into the right site. We parked on the grass sites which turned out fine. We were in an area with 30 amp and water, no sewer. The showers were nearby and for $.50 it was not a problem. We spent 8 days there and our black tank was 35% full and our gray tank was 60% so it was completely doable. Folks that wanted there tanks pumped out were charged $10. That too seemed completely reasonable. I wanted to mention these things up front and say that in spite of these limitations, the campground was great! It is very well run and a very friendly staff and work crew. They are always mowing and out and about interacting with the campers to make them feel welcome. We got a fire ring as did most others (at no charge) and enjoyed many wonderful campfires. The swimming pool was great for the kids and I got in a couple of times which was refreshing. Free buses stop at the campground each day that go into Bar Harbor and into Acadia National Park. You can take your bike on the bus. The campground is well run, the price is right, the atmosphere is great. We will be back!

Campground has a lot of different kind of sites: RVs, park models, and trailers. Some of the roads are narrow, but we managed with no problem. Our friends didn't fare so well and scraped a bay door on a large rock near an intersection. The staff are friendly and helpful, and we would stay here again. We enjoyed adjoining large sites (one pull through) and an evening campfire. We'd stay here again.

Campground was adequate. The drive up and down to/from the highway and campground was about as steep as I want to try. However, the road was recently re-paved, and it was no problem. The staff was efficient, and we had no issues with our time at the campground. The campsite was in a large gravel U-shaped area that we had to back into at a diagonal, but we did that with no problem. We had a view of the lake. We were there to see the USMA at West Point and the campground served its purpose. We would do it again.

Adequate campground near Boston. Campground was orderly with the grass mowed and cared for. The office staff were helpful and had a nice 'Welcome' pitch that included how to get the base, local shopping and access to the metro into Boston. The campground is 1/2 wooded and 1/2 in the open which makes satellite TV viewing iffy. We had no trouble getting quite a few TV channels off our digital antenna. 50 amp is nice, camp sites are level. For the first few days we were among the trees so we could not deploy our canopy but it was no issue. The grounds have a tent for group gatherings and also hosts a bike ride down the nearby bike trail on Fridays. Nice touch. We would stay here again.

Nice campground and a good place to spend a few days. No satellite TV access but local channels off our digital antenna was adequate. The facility is relatively old but it is in very good shape and well care for. The drive up to the campground off the highway was fairly steep but the road is recently paved and we had no trouble towing our Honda in our 40' motorhome. The office personnel were friendly and efficient and it was no trouble getting into our campsite. The campsite could have been cramped but it was only 1/2 full. It again was adequate and we had a nice view of the lake. The campground was very convenient for spending the day at West Point touring the grounds and seeing the terrific museums on campus. We would stay here again.

Campground has very easy access on/off which is a real plus. It is clean and fairly well mowed. The laundry facility was fine. The staff was friendly. The campsites are large and fairly level: no issues. The sewer hose is directly underneath the RV and between the rear tires which is the only negative. The campground used to be a mobile home park and they never spent the money to relocate the sewer. We will be back.

Previous issues with the campground remain. But the price is right and the location is excellent. The campground is adequate and it was worth it being here. That being said it has some issues. The grass is haphazardly mowed not trimmed well and there are potholes in the road. The staff is friendly enough but not that confident. Most sites are level but some are not. Most of these issues can be fixed with training and someone a little motivation on the part the grounds crew. We spoke with the Director of Outdoor Recreation (who runs the campground) and found they are trying and there are improvements on the way.

We were very impressed with the campground and would stay here again. The staff is very nice and helpful, very efficient. They had a sale on good quality campground T-Shirts which was a nice touch. The grounds are very well maintained, the pond and boats are a good attractions. We also liked the pool.

We liked this RV park. The access and entry to the campground is easy. The staff is friendly and helpful. The campsites are spacious. We asked for an open one and it was great. There are only a few trees but we wanted to make sure, and had no problem. We enjoyed the campsite and sat outside in the beautiful weather in the evening and it was great. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Campground is very well maintained. Lots of grass and sites have a lot of room. The clubhouse has a pool table and two ping pong tables which are in great shape. The pool is large and very well maintained. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The highway is nearby, but noise is not a problem. We would stay here again.

This is a great park. We couldn't stay in the Wal-Mart parking lot and were looking for a reasonable, easy access location. The staff was helpful, and the site is great. We asked for satellite TV access and they parked us on the last row which was fine. We would stay here again.

Beautiful location on the lake. Sites are spacious with clean restrooms and showers. Satellite TV, internet, and cell phones work great here. It is located about 20 miles from West Yellowstone, but it is a great place. We would camp here again.

The campground is right next to the arena which was fine. There was an issue of what to do with our trash. The manager expected us to walk around the arena near a residence (trailer) on the other side of the arena. When I called the owner, he made the manager place a trash barrel near us. Other than that, it was fine. The campground is very basic but adequate. We stayed here with other RVers for a Habitat for Humanity build and got a $5 break on the nightly fee so it only cost us $15/night. A bonus for us was the barrel racing that happened every Wednesday night. Horse trailers pulled up and we were treated to a couple of hours of friendly club competition. The location is good and on the outskirts of town but still close to everything. We probably would stay again.

Campground was fine for an overnight stay. $20 seems like a lot for such a small park. It has an old section and new section. My biggest complaint is with the manual reservation system. It is not automated and we emailed and left a message. The manager was gone for a week and left it to the camphost. The camphost did not know the manager had reserved a spot in the new area. When we arrived we set up in the old area under a large tree. The camphost found the manager had reserved a spot in the new area but we were never notified. We moved to the new site and it is excellent. It has concrete pads and are very spacious. The laundry facilities are fine. Wash was only .75 which was a bargain. The campground is next to the base gym and running track and has some nice views of the mountains and the Salt Lake in the distance. We'd stay here again.

The campground was a good one for smaller vehicles. Class C motorhomes and tents would be fine. We managed with a 40' class A. If you really want to camp here you can make it work fine. We were in site KA-18 which is one of the more level sites for a big motorhome. Restrooms were very clean. Campsites were well maintained. Best thing about the campground is the proximity to two great parks. The Dead Horse Point State park has a lot of fantastic vistas and scenic views we would have otherwise missed. It is very close to Canyonlands National Park and made it easy to drive over their to see it. The big disadvantage is that it is 30 miles from Moab and 21 miles from Arches National Park so it is a tradeoff.

Another great military campground! It is 100 yards / walking distance to the beach. The campground is upgrading all sites to 50 amp and opening 41 more sites in Dec. The location is not far from downtown Virginia Beach. This may be one of our all time favorites! Like the old campground with beach access. It has concrete sites and some shade trees on one side of the campground. We will be here again!

One of the best kept secrets in the military campground system. Great staff: friendly and accommodating. Concrete hardstands and full hookups. Wonderful sunsets every evening right on the bay. Near good shopping and a couple of miles to the white sand beaches. Wonderful place! We stayed here 10 days and will do it again!

We arrived in the rain during when it was still quite hot at night. We wanted to use our air conditioner for the night. The campground is off the Interstate and takes quite a climb with a lot of turns to get to it. Once there I thought the campground sites and roads needed a lot of work. The road had a lot of pot holes and the site was not level. The registration person was nice, the camp store and restrooms were clean and well maintained. I just thought it was no where near the $46 we paid. I think I have stayed at my last KOA. Price is really important to us.

We camped here up against the lake with a sod farm outside our front window. It is beautiful. We have 50 amp electric, water, and sewer. The site has grass, ample space, and a campfire. One of the most beautiful campgrounds we have stayed at. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Managers do a great job of keeping the park clean and well maintained. They were friendly and had a lot of useful information about where to find things in Deming. Not sure we would stay here long term but we will definitely be back when we need to stay overnight or for a few days.

We camped here with 3 other Care-A-Vanners with Habitat for Humanity for a build in Santa Fe. The sites at the Rodeo grounds are very basic. We were parked backing up to the bleachers. It was fine but if you are looking for something nice this is not it. If you are looking for value this is good. In Santa Fe this location is a good value. $15 per night is hard to find anywhere else. You may need an extra 15 feet of water hose and two sewer hoses depending on where your site it. I would camp here again. It is more secure than a Wall-Mart parking lot and has a locking gate which are a plus.

The restrooms and shower were cleaned a couple times a week, but the cobwebs and bugs were quick. Not all sites were level. It took us 3 times, but we found one that was fine. There appeared to be many open sites so it was pretty easy to find one. The camp hosts did not mention the gate closes at 10:00 so we had a 2 1/2 mile walk from the front gate to our site. The signs were posted, but we were newbies and were more concerned about other info. They views and serenity of the campsites were very nice. We would probably go back again, but it did not quite have the 'it' factor.

This campground was over priced. A lot of money for no sewer. It was a major inconvenience. We had to pull up the jacks and unplug every few days, and it was a hassle. The staff were not very helpful. In fact it seemed they were looking for ways to nail you as they patrolled the parking lot. It was not good. The overall location and the park were fine although overpriced. The sites were OK. I would not use this campground again.

We camped here because it was close to our old house. We moved out of a house in Fairfax and stayed here in order to finish up work and say good bye to friends. It is a beautiful park, the location is great and the neighbors were good. However, it was outrageously priced for no sewer and no water. Plus, the staff don't seem to get it. They offered no information about the park itself or trails nearby or other information when we checked in. They also did not forewarn us that park personnel would go through the campground at least 3 times a day looking for those sites with a second vehicle. We did not know that they needed to be parked 200 yards away in the parking lot instead of near the campsite. The common theme among the campers were how badly this place has been managed. No concern for the campers, only obeying dumb rules. One camper had to move his RV 3 spaces because someone had his site reserved for the weekend. His comment, "These people have beat me down over the years, I just do what they tell me to do." Apparently they don't have an eraser to put the weekender in the other site. Nuff said: you get my drift.
