This was an OK place to stay for a week. Easy access from the interstate and well marked signage. Our long pull-through with 50 amps (there are limited number of sites with 50 amp) was not terribly level, but we were able to work it out. Everything was dirt and gravel but the ground was hard packed and stable. The folks running the campground were very nice. Great location for sightseeing and for access to Rapid City. We would stay here again, but would try for a more level site. Rate reflects the Passport America discount.
Previous reviews about tight turns are correct, but it was manageable. Overall, this is a nice spot. We were unable to level automatically on this site due to too much slope, but we were able to get reasonably level. We could live with it for 4 days. Some sites are level, we just weren't given one. We are a big rig and were able to negotiate all turns. The surface is coarse gravel and is very hard and stable. The sewer connections are sometimes distant from the rig, but again, manageable. Bike path is immediately adjacent to park. Great location central to many activities.
This is a great state park, especially for big rigs! Easy access from the interstate, and well-marked. Wide roads, long pull-through sites with paving and concrete slabs. Full hookups. Wonderful bike trails, and great views of the city and the mountains! Deer wandering through in the early morning and evening hours. We were in the Buffalo Loop, site 142. Very nice campground hosts. we would definitely stay here again. The daily rate includes a $9/day vehicle charge (they give you a free pass for the toad).
This is pretty basic camping. Find the Campground Host and he will help you find a site. It had rained hard here several times before we arrived, and there was a lot of standing water and the ground was soft. We were worried about driving onto the grass in a big rig, but the host found a spot where there was concrete, so we were all set. This is central to everything in Sioux Falls and is uncrowded and reasonably quiet on this Labor Day weekend. Can't beat the price -- with full hookups- we would stay here again for sure!
This was a nice spot for an overnight. Only a mile off the Interstate, with a paved pad, and full hookups including cable and Wi-Fi, for only $22/night (plus taxes). This was the discounted Escapees rate. There is very frequent and very convenient shuttle service to the casino. We signed up as new Rewards members in the casino and were given $10 each in free plays, so the net cost for staying there was about even. We even won a little money which almost paid for our dinner. Overall, a very nice way to spend an evening. Only downside was that our site was supposed to be 50 ft long, but we were just barely able to fit, and connect the power cord, and still have room to park the jeep. We did fit, but it was tight.
We love this campground. OK, it is a marina parking lot, but it has full hookups, the sites are wide enough to accommodate our 43 ft motorhome with slides out, and the Jeep parked alongside. We are looking out at boats cruising the harbor, and ships transiting the aerial bridge one block away. It is walking distance to Canal Park, with many restaurants and attractions, bike paths, etc. What is not to like? We would definitely stay here again!
This was a great place from which to tour the east end of the UP. The back in sites are along the edges of the parking lot ...very quiet, as the parking lot is several hundred feet away from the main casino lot. Some sites were on a slope, but it looked like everyone leveled OK. A short drive to St Ignace. The price was great! We would definitely stay here again!
There are not many sites in this park suitable for a big rig, but there were a few. The staff were very accommodating in trying to find a spot for us that we would fit in. A pretty spot, with a great view of the lake. We would stay here again.
This is certainly a unique place, with a unique owner. A nice guy. We needed to be in Marquette, and this was the closest park, which is why we chose it. It did accommodate our 43 ft motorhome with a long pull through, and we only scraped a few trees when negotiating the narrow roads. The low rating that I gave was for two specific reasons: (1) the water was terrible ...very odorous, often brownish in color. We were only there for 3 days, and I now have rust stains in the toilet bowl that I cannot remove!! The ice was brownish in color in spite of the filter in the fridge. We had to purge all the water systems after we left there, throw out all ice, and I am still cleaning the toilet trying to remove the rust stains. (2) it was dirty ...very hard to keep the coach clean. The driveway was a mix of dirt, sand, and pine needles, with little or no crushed stone. It rained one day and everything tracked into the coach! I would not stay there again.
This is a very nice park, and while a few miles out of town, it is right across the street from a bike trail. It is a very easy ride into Petoskey. The park is lovely, the sites are Huge, the roads are very wide. This place is perfect for big rigs. The only problem is a temporary one (I hope) ...they don't have cable service this year, and many of the sites have trees that block or inhibit satellite signal. The staff are wonderful, though, and allowed us to move several times until we found a site that worked for us. Very, very nice folks and very accommodating. We would definitely stay here again! The rate we paid was a promotional rate.
This is a lovely park. Too far from Traverse City to bike, so had to drive and park to enjoy the area bike trails. Nice place, nice people. Pretty pricey, but certainly very comfortable place to be. Would probably stay here again.
This was not a great place for a long stay. It was adequate, only. We paid a premium for a "patio" site.... it was asphalt paved, which is an improvement over the less expensive dirt/gravel sites. It was a long pull-through with a concrete patio and a fire pit. The area was heavily treed, and the satellite did not work. There was no cable TV available. There was WiFI, but there was a daily charge of $5.00. There were low-hanging tree branches that hit the roof of the coach when we arrived. I asked twice at the office for someone to come by to cut them and no one ever did, so of course they scraped the whole roof of the coach when we departed. The only exit lane is also the dump station lane, so there was a traffic jam in the morning, with campers lined up to leave, but stuck behind campers at the dump station. We loved Grand Haven, and were disappointed that this park was so far from the many bike trails around the town. Would not stay here again.
This was a very nice park with large lots and lovely landscaping. It is only about a mile from the Kal-Haven Bike Trail. We were able to ride our bikes right into South Haven! It was an easy ride, about 10 miles round trip. The only reason I am not rating the park higher is that there was no cable TV. The lots are wired for cable, but it is the responsibility of lot owners to hook it up. Lots in the rental pool do not have cable. I think for a premium charge of $58 / night, cable ought to be included. Otherwise, this place was great and we would definitely stay here again.
This is a nice park, and is fine for a big rig. We got a long pull-through in the "B" loops - were in site B101 and there was plenty of room for our 44' coach and the Jeep. There was 50 amp electric only (no water or sewer) but OUR SATELLITE WORKED, so we were happy campers indeed! AND, as an added bonus, the Ohio State Parks accept Passport America and discount the rate by 50% on weekdays! Fun park with lots of bike trails and nice scenery. Would stay here again, for sure!
This was a nice place to stay when touring the Amana Colonies. It is little more than a big, flat, field that has been made into a HUGE campground. Sites were gravel and grass ... I might not have liked it after days of heavy rain as I imagine it gets muddy, but it was dry when we were there. Full hookups, lots of elbow room, friendly people. We would stay there again.
Very nice park, very "big rig" friendly. The gentleman in the office, was very professional and helpful. A good location for KC sightseeing. We were there during the week and the amusement parks were closed, so don't know what it is like there during peak season. Only issue: the website does not have clear and accurate directions to the campground, so it is important to call ahead. Very easy to find, once you know where to go. Overall, a great park and we would definitely stay there again.
This was a great spot for an overnight stay when coming from the Rio Grande Valley. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the park was well laid out with large/long concrete sites suitable for a big rig with car in tow. Nice landscaping. Easy to find and near the major through routes. Will definitely stay here again! They only take cash or checks, though, so don't plan on using your credit cards!
Great spot, with very friendly staff. Convenient to all the attractions in Hot Springs National Park. Lots of water recreation opportunities nearby, along with lots of shopping / dining within just a few miles. Easy to get to, with decent roads for a big rig. We came off of I-30 onto US 270W, then 70W, then Rt 128 (Carpenter Dam Rd) then Shady Grove Rd. Shady Grove was the only road that we were unsure about (weight/height restrictions) but it was fine. Beautiful facilities, great big sites with plenty of room. A fair price. Would definitely come here again!
Have stayed here several times. Great for easy access to Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor without being stuck on Mt Desert Island in heavy traffic. Nice big sites with a water view, easy in and easy out for our BIG RIG. Best feature: the staff here are VERY accommodating and helpful. Will definitely stay here again!
This is a very classy park with hotel-like services and amenities (concierge staff, free ice machine, lovely common areas with pool and spa) and it is within easy walking distance from the heart of the French Quarter. It was very very easy to get into the park from I-10 and the signage and staff help exceeded our expectations. The roadways are wide and the sites are spacious. The security seems more than adequate. The cost is more than the average campground, but this place is not average! The cost is certainly far, far less than a hotel room in the French Quarter! We will certainly come back - what a great way to visit "The Big Easy"!
This is a nice park with a private boardwalk leading to the beach. It is about 3 miles south of Port Aransas so you'll need to drive or ride the trolley to get to stores and restaurants. The pull-through sites are just large enough for a big rig and car, and the pads were all concrete with a small patio and picnic table. The pool and spa facilities were very nice, as were the office and common areas. Staff were very friendly and very helpful, which is no small accomplishment in a park as big and busy as this one is! We were there during peak season (spring break) and did not have any problems or inconveniences. We will surely go back!
This park earns high marks for the friendly staff, friendly campers, and great location right in the center of Port Aransas! This park is within walking or biking distance to most all of the Port Aransas attractions. The pool and spa facilites are very nice. The campsites are all paved, but it is an older park with narrow streets and it could be somewhat cramped. There are many permanent campers there. The only place we could consider parking our 43 ft motorhome is on the perimeter rows. We camped here in the grassy "overflow" area for two weeks when we found ourselves stranded with no reservations during peak season. We appreciated their extending themselves to us, and we will go back because we liked the location so well.
This was a nice park in a great location. Lots of boats to look at, and a great seawall walking path through a scenic little town. The park was spacious, clean, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The pads were all concrete in the pull-though section where we stayed.
This park is very nicely done with large all-concrete pads and small patios with picnic tables. Potential exists for close neighbors, but that is the only drawback. Staff were very friendly and helpful. There was not a spa, unfortunately. The pools, office, and common areas were spotless and the landscaping was very attractive. This was within walking distance to shops, restaurants and the Kemah Boardwalk area. We would definitely go back!
This park is in a good location, close to Nashville attractions like the Grand Ole Opry. The sites were spacious enough. It was early winter, so we did not seek out opportunities to bike, swim, etc, and so cannot comment on that. While we stayed here, there was a rash of burglaries in motorhomes in this park, and in two other neighboring parks. Those who were victims of the crime spree suffered significant losses and some had damage to their motorhomes. The management and staff in the park seemed totally unconcerned! While not at fault, certainly, some effort on the owners part to show support, sympathy, or a willingness to support our impromptu "neighborhood watch" program would have been expected and appreciated. I overheard one staffer telling someone who'd been a victim of the crime that "it wasn't my [the staffer's] problem". A disappointing response, to be sure! We would not stay there again.
We selected this park based on it's proximity to two Dallas suburbs where we had business. This was certainly not an RV park that caters to transients or to big rigs. While we made it into the park, and into our site, I would never go back, nor would I recommend it to anyone. Very scary looking place!
This park was listed in my "Big Rigs" book as a place that can accommodate 40 foot and larger coaches. Based on that, I reserved a site and planned to stay for 2 weeks. While all the sites are pull-throughs, there was very little extra room and parking our Jeep Grand Cherokee became an issue. Twice we were approached by staff persons asking us to move the vehicle. In both instances, the requests seemed relatively trivial and picky ( i.e."the edge of the tire is on the patio bricks and that is not allowed"). Obviously, we all want to be good neighbors and would not want to inconvenience another camper or obstruct traffic, etc. But these parking issues were closer to harassment! The second time the request came during our dinner and was expressed more as an immediate demand than as a request. Since there was no satisfactory place to put the car and we were growing weary of fighting with park staffers, we decided to check out early and find a park with more space for our rig and car. We also overheard the manager bragging to other staffers that she would not take any grief from any campers. We sensed a real negative attitude there. We would not go back!
This was a very nice park in a great location! We enjoyed all the amenities, like the pool, spa, and fitness center. The people were great and the location could not have been better! We were parked on a coarse rock pad, which I thought I would not like, but we got used to it and it really helped to keep the coach clean as we did not track in grass, dirt or sand. The only negative is that this park is on a public road, and there is no restriction on access by the public. Our BBQ grill was stolen. After that, we kept everything locked up!
The nightly rate of $20 is based on a month-long stay at a discounted monthly rate. We stayed in a premium site, which had a full concrete pad, and a coach house. These nicely landscaped sites are along the perimeter, and each one has a BBQ grill in the grassy area behind the coach. We really enjoyed this park! The people were great and there were loads of amenities. There were bikes, kayaks and ATVs available for loan. This park is adjacent to the Rio Grande river, and there are plenty of places to go hiking, biking and kayaking. There was a nice clubhouse, fitness center, wood shop, craft room, pool and spa. We will definitely go back!
We arrived for a month-long stay, checked in, and paid for a premium space. The staff member assigned to lead us to our site, assist in parking, etc. was extremely argumentative and belligerent. He yelled, he threatened to fine us if we failed to follow instructions when parking, and told us to leave if we did not like it. This was wholly unprovoked! We attempted to diffuse the situation but were unable to, and finally decided to leave rather than stay in that hostile environment. The office staff person initially declined to refund our payment, but eventually the owner/manager did approve a full refund. The owner/manager also apologized, which we appreciated. Unfortunately we were left without a place to stay! We have a big rig, and had trouble finding another place to stay for a month during peak season. We would never go back there, as this was a very unpleasant experience!
