What a difference new owners make! There is already a huge improvement in this campground. Trashy trailers and the old house have all been removed, and the grounds have been cleaned up. Very accommodating owners for those in Sioux Falls to take care of residency business. If approaching the campground from the interstate, there is a barrier on US 42/12th Street that prevents a left turn into the campground driveway. Go pass the campground and turn left at the next traffic light. Go around the block by turning left at the first named street, left at the T, and then right at stop to be on the correct side of the Tower Campground entrance. The campground office is in the large white building on your left as you enter. It does not look like what you might expect for a campground office. Sioux Falls is the home of the 114th Fighter Wing of the Air National Guard and depending on weather conditions, the fighter jets' take-off may fly over the campground which is very loud. Frankly, makes you want to stand up and salute!

Rate reflects a weekly rate. This is a gem located north of Frankfort on the Kentucky River at the mouth of the Elkhorn Creek. Entry can be misleading as you cross a single-lane bridge on pavement and then transition to gravel. The area around the office and the storage area are a bit unkempt, but as you are escorted to your site you round the bend and see a beautiful, unspoiled meadow. All roads are gravel and single lane but courtesy makes traversing them no problem. We requested a site for our satellite and had no problem connecting. However, many sites are in the shade so be sure to request an open site if that is important to you. The full-hook-up sites have many seasonals but their campsites are neat. The hook-ups are conveniently located and easily accessed. The sites are gravel surrounded with grass. This is not a resort but if you like a state park atmosphere with full hook-ups, you'll enjoy Still Waters. There are also two primitive areas and water/electric only sites available for RVs and tents with a dump station on the grounds. There are no trains, no highway noises, no city lights. Frisbee golf,fishing, hiking, volleyball and a lots of wide open spaces for the kids to run are located on the grounds as well as canoe rentals available at the concession in the campground. Probably could be busy/zoo on a summer/holiday weekend or if there's a company picnic on the grounds, but during the week it is an oasis. Located about 10 miles north of Frankfort, Still Waters is close enough to access all the sightseeing available in the area. Would definitely return again.

The price reflects the Passport America rate with $2 additional for 50 amp plus tax. This is an 18-month old campground with the owners putting in a lot of hard work to make it a very nice park. There was a little interstate noise with the doors and windows open, but it was not a distraction. The park was well-kept with owners in the process of putting in brick "patios" so wherever you exit your rig, you step onto the patio. The seasonal and few full-time residents were indistinguishable meaning all the sites were neat and uncluttered. There is much to do in the area which we look forward to seeing the next time we visit. A Wal-Mart and Cracker Barrel are within a couple of miles of the campground.

The nightly rate reflects the Passport America rate for 30 amp. This is one of the best PA campgrounds we have stayed in. What a value with cable and Wi-Fi included! The young man who checked us in was very gracious. For being on old Route 66, there was very little road noise. The sites were great pull-throughs so we didn't have to unhook the toad. Nice evergreens between the sites toward the front of the campground. Sites are level gravel. The "run-down" motel that is not in use was reminiscent of days gone by. We did not find it a detraction. This campground has no amenities like a pool or clubhouse, but those are not important to us. We were very happy with our accommodation's. We would definitely stay here again.

North Campground is older with many mature trees and with some paved and some gravel sites with 30 amp. The South Campground which is newer has all paved sites and 50 amp. Most sites are spacious many with lake views. Limited satellite reception in North Campground, no problem in South Campground. Water to fill tanks was hard to find. Campground is quiet during the week days but very busy on weekends. There are boat ramps and beach swimming.

A very nice RV park with several hundred sites. The sites aren't too close together and are angled for good privacy. The pads and roads are gravel, but there are cement patios and grass between the sites. There are some trees; but, they were very accommodating in the office to give us one of the numerous sites where satellite reception isn't a problem. There is a little noise from a nearby quarry - machinery humming, trucks growling, and backup beepers beeping.

Nice wide gravel sites w/ grass. Some shade, but decent satellite reception on many sites. On hillside overlooking small lake. Great location for sightseeing in the area...between Winston-Salem and Charlotte. Many NASCAR race shops in the area.

No hookups. Few bay-side sites have view of water, no sea-side sites do. Wild horses wandering around. Quiet in off-season. Lots of places to ride your bike.

This campground has about 45 sites up on a hill behind a large public swimming pool with water slides, etc. The campground has fairly wide sites with gravel pads, full hookups, and nice grass between sites. There is a fishing lake behind the row of sites on the eastern side. Other than some traffic noise from nearby I-70, the campground was fairly quiet during the off-season. May be a different story when the large, public pool on the property is open.

Sites are spacious although a few pads are a little short, and it is usually nice and quiet, even on the weekends. The non-pet sites are mostly heavily wooded and the pet loop has nice grass and some shade. Lake Erie is a short drive, bike ride, or longer walk from the campground.

This is a nice campground with fairly large sites for a private campground. Although there are a few shorter sites, big rigs are no problem for the majority of the sites. There are three main areas - on the hill overlooking the rest of the campground, at the entrance level where the office is located, and the lower area. The entrance level sites are all gravel while all the others are grass with gravel pads. The campground is well kept and the owners are constantly adding sites and making improvements. There is a new area of premium sites just added this year. These are extra large and will soon have concrete pads. All sites have full hookups and there is free Wi-Fi and free firewood. There are no bath houses, laundry, or restrooms. Scenic Hills is for self-contained RVs only.

This former KOA campground has larger sites than you would normally associate with KOA campgrounds which was really nice. The garden with water feature was right outside our door and the sound of water was lovely. There is a need for fresh gravel on the sites but we had no rain so it wasn't a problem. Although the interstate was not visible, there was a fair amount of road noise but the easy on/off was very convenient. The new owners are enthusiastic and delightful and create a warm, hospitable environment. This is a great location for travel between the Smokies and the shore. We will return.

This is a delightful and serene oasis in the beautiful rock country near Monument Valley. This well-kept campground has colorful plantings of flowers as well as green grass, park benches with soft post lights along the fishing pond. The nightly rate quoted on the Bluff, UT, website is outdated and the owners have requested it be changed for the past 5 years. We have paid more for a less desirable campsite so price was not an issue for us. Each site has gravel, a shade tree, and picnic table. The trees do not interfere with satellite reception.

Transient sites had cement walkways between sites with dusty, desert sand on the site. Using outdoor mat worked well. Paved interior roads. Nice fenced-in pet area. Site size not overly generous. Just off I-8, highway noise was noticeable and train noise noticeable all night with whistle blowing at the many crossroads. Close to shopping. We would stay here again.

Nicely spaced sites, each with cement patio and gravel between sites. Many overnighters, but when we stayed for a week, they put us on a site in a back row. There are many pull-throughs. Satellite reception was not a problem at all. About 50 miles from Phoenix. Closest Wal-Mart is 30 miles. Just one hour from Wickenburg. Easy access from I-10 but far enough from the highway that noise was not a problem. We would definitely stay here again. Passport America is good for 3 nights in six months.

This is a campground in progress...its biggest draw is that it is on a tributary to the Neuse River with good fishing. It is at the end of a 3/4 mile dirt road. The airplane noise from the Cherry Point Marine Air Installation could make the motorhome shake, but provides a healthy dose of patriotism. Found no rest rooms...suggest self-contained units only. Felt level site with full-hook-up for the price was a value.

This is an okay place for an overnight stop or if you are having service work done. Lots of shade and sites are close together. An okay value with Passport America, but full price would be unjustified.

For our needs, this was a very suitable campground. We need an unobstructed view of the southern sky for our satellite and they had a number of sites with full hook-ups that would accommodate us. This campground is showing its age but if you're self-sufficient and in the area for sightseeing, this campground works well...it's an easy to access the entire area from here. We would camp here again.

This is one of our very favorite campgrounds because we like to be able to have a good view of the valley and be close to the road to observe the Amish going about their daily activities. However, it is just about impossible to get one of our favorite sites. Haven't been able to determine what you need to do to get one. There was a noticeable difference in attitude from the new owners' first year and their second year of operation. It seemed obvious that they had limited experience working with the public and they seemed to have been burned by previous guests. The bathrooms and laundry room were impecabbly maintained. If we are back in the area, we would give the campground another chance.

We stayed here through Passport America for which we got only 1 night half-price because it was not good on Friday or Saturday. This camp has an area where you can bring in your own horse to ride around the battlefield. We were parked in this area because of our need for access to satellite and found it to be interesting and a lot of fun to watch. No problem with horse plops in the camping area. This camp has a wonderful diorama of the battle which is free to registered campers. The physical grounds are rustic with a ranch-style feel. We would camp here again.

The owners are very accommodating and have an obvious love for managing the campground. At about 45 mins. from Allegheny General Hospital, this is a good location for any business needed to be conducted in Pittsburgh at a fair nightly rate. They are open year round which is an added advantage. There are many seasonals, but their sites for transients are pull-throughs and grouped together. The managers live on-site and operate a security gate year round. We look forward to staying here whenever we are back in Pittsburgh to visit with family.

We arrived on a sunny, weekday without reservations and the sun-dappled campground was lovely. The office did not open until 4 p.m., and we couldn't find a map of the campground to identify the non-reservable sites. We had to track down a campground host and he was friendly and provided some help. We ended up on a reservable site that was vacant and was ensured only 2 nights. (The best way to ensure a site is to reserve on-line, but we didn't want to pay the $8.50 reservation fee because we weren't sure how long we were going to stay.) The maintenance crew was very responsive when we couldn't access the site because of low-hanging branches. Floating down the Meramec River on inner tubes or on a raft and fishing seem to be the activities of choice. This campground is located on a flood plain. Therefore, when it rains there is a lot of standing water (even on the paved pads) until the ground absorbs it. The heavy tree cover makes this campground dark and dank on cloudy/rainy days. We would not stay here again.

We stayed here while establishing our South Dakota residency. There appeared to be one row of pull-through shaded sites for travelers. All the other sites were seasonal and were, for the most part, in various states of disrepair. The laundry room was closed while we were there. The campground was unkempt with no grass, very little gravel, and a lot of dirt. We would not stay here again.

This is a non-reservable campground that is impecably maintained. We were here the weeke before Labor Day and it was very quiet. The ranger was helpful in suggesting sites that could possibly accommodate our satellite internet. Each site has a mature tree on it but there is plenty of grass. This is a great place to ride bikes. There's a 4 1/2 mile loop around the lake. The playground area for the kids is also great. This campground is open year-round with no hook-ups available usually after the middle of November. We loved this campground. The only thing that would have made it a 10 is full hook-ups and cable...neither of which we needed. We will definitely camp here again.
