Although it was a bit out of the way from our southern travel on I-81, we used this campground as a one night stop-over. We were given a lovely, level pull-thru site with the laundry, restrooms and showers near-by and a great view and cooling breeze. This is primarily a seasonal campground but has nice accommodations for those passing through. The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. We would return if in the area.

Although this is primarily a campground for seasonals, they are welcoming to those of us travelling through, and there is a large pull-through section available as well as back-ins for that purpose. We found the facilities to be somewhat dated but more than adequate, and the attractive and popular pool is well maintained and supervised. A highlight for us, was the delicious, hand-dipped ice cream that is sold at the office. We found this campground to be in a good location for sightseeing at Chimney Bluffs, Sodus Point and Oswego. We stayed six nights. Passport America, Good Sam and Family Motorcoach are accepted here.

We found this to be larger than many other KOAs we've stayed in with a variety of sites for both large and small RVs. It is well laid-out and spacious. We stayed in section A which had nice, level pull-through sites that were easy to get in and out of. The campground is centrally located to many of the area attractions which we enjoyed. The weekend we were there was very busy and we surmised that it is used as a weekend retreat for area residents. With the many activities available and the competent and efficient staff it is easy to see why. We would definitely stay again, if in the area.

This small campground is in the natural setting of the Upper Peninsula, which is noted for its very rustic environment. It is situated eight miles outside of the village of Newberry where fuel and provisions are available. The campground is simple and basic with large roomy sites that have shared services. Most were very well shaded. We found the laundry to be small but adequate. The showers and restrooms appeared to be old but clean. Although we had been informed that mosquito's were frequently problematic we had no issues with them during our stay. We went berry picking on their nature trail and were not bothered there either. The campground owner was cheerful, very welcoming and could not have been more helpful. She went out of her way to help us solve a small problem with our e-mail and was most accommodating.

Although this is a membership campground those of us passing through are made welcome. We were in the open pull-through section and had a convenient, level and roomy site with good Wi-Fi reception. The park is very quiet and well-kept and our stay was very pleasant. Traverse City, which has major shopping and fuel stops, was a short drive away. Our only criticism is that we felt the office staff could have been friendlier. If in the area we would not hesitate to stay here again.

We found this campground to be good for an overnight or even several days stay. It is easy access from I-80 and is inviting and well-maintained. Although older, the showers and restrooms are clean and well-kept and it is obvious that the owners work to make constant improvements and strive to make everyone comfortable. We had a long, level, well graveled pull through site with convenient utilities. Should we be in the area again we would definitely stop here.

We stayed one night in this primarily long-stay/destination campground as a stop-over in our travels. We were here on a Saturday night but were not expecting quiet hours to start at midnight and found that rather disconcerting. We reserved a full-hookup pull through site but found that extensions were needed for the water and electric and we were never able to locate the sewer connection. Needless to say, we were glad to be able to move on the next day. It is most unlikely that we would ever return.

This campground is a former KOA that has been enlarged with a newer, open section for larger RVs. Our pull through site was in the older section and, although nicely shaded, was difficult to get into with tight turns and narrow roadways. Many locals use this campground as a weekend getaway so it was quite busy when we were there. We assumed that the low electric voltage which was less than 110 for the entire seven days we were there, was due to the high volume of campers. We found the Wi-Fi to be very unreliable. The camp store was well stocked and the staff was knowledgeable and informative. We chose this campground for its proximity to the Henry Ford museum and were pleasantly surprised when we were offered the opportunity to purchase discount tickets at campground check-in for that attraction with parking included, which were a better deal than at the attraction itself. If we were in the area again we would look for an alternative place to stay.

Although this is a private campground, we felt that it was more like a city or county park. The roads to the sites are extremely narrow and tree-lined which makes maneuvering tricky. Our site was a long, level pull through and, although staggered, the sites were narrow and quite close together. There was not much grass at our site and despite the fact that we had mats and our steps are carpeted, we continually tracked damp brown sand into the trailer. We found this campground to be very convenient to Frankenmuth and would recommend it, for that reason, to others.

We enjoyed our three night stay at this small campground that overlooks Lake Michigan and offers a lovely view. The campground is older which made it a bit tight to pull into our site but the site was long enough for our 33' Fifth Wheel and truck. There are longer and more easily accessible sites available in the open field section. We had a site in the second row, which is for pull throughs, but if you want the best view you will need to request a spot in the first row. Our main objective in staying here was to visit St. Ignace (a ten minute ride) and Mackinac Island and at check-in we were offered a discount coupon for one of the ferry services to the island, which we used and found to be extremely satisfactory. Although we came to sight see, we found the campground pleasant, quiet and relaxing and would not hesitate to make it a destination for several days in the future.

We felt that this was mostly an extended-stay location for families, although they had some spots for transients. We stayed three nights and had a well-shaded, large, long pull-thru site but needed extra long hoses to reach the utilities. It was supposed to be a grass site but the grass had worn away so they had thrown hay on the site to keep dust and mud controlled. Unfortunately, we tracked a lot of hay into our unit anytime we went out. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. There is a large inviting pool area and playground by the office which was in use continually throughout the day. Due to the large number of children riding bikes, skateboards, etc. on the paved roads, it was necessary to be extremely careful leaving and returning for the day. We found the laundry (two washers and 2 dryers) to be inadequate for the size of the campground. Although our experience was satisfactory, as we primarily stay short-term while sightseeing, we probably would not tend to stay here again.

It is not hard to get to this campground from the interstate but the approach road is a little off-putting as you pass an abandoned housing project en route to the entrance. The campground, itself, is quite nice with long, level, gravel sites. Ours was not shaded. The pool was large, but very crowded on the weekend we were there. We felt that the laundry room was barely adequate for the size of the campground, especially with the staff washing linens from the cabins. We had read that the staff could be abrupt and sometimes difficult and at check-in and we found this to be true. We felt more defensive than welcome. This campground has more rules and restrictions than any campground we have stayed in during our last five years of extensive travel. We would stay here again even though we feel the staff could be less severe.

Having made our reservation ahead of time, we were greatly disappointed in this campground. It is a basic, bare-bones, one-night stop meant mainly for the race fans attending the near-by track. There are absolutely no amenities here -- only dirt sites surrounded by farm land. It is easy access from the interstate and includes fuel and a burger joint with tasty, inexpensive food. We would look for another place to stop in the future.

This is an older KOA, surrounded by cornfields, with shaded grass sites. We had a large, level site with good hook-ups. The camp store was fairly well stocked and the laundry room, although small, was clean and convenient. There is a very large clean pool, which we were able to use despite the fact that they were redoing the surrounding concrete decking. We would not hesitate to return if in the area.

We had a roomy, well-shaded, pull-through site which was one of many offered at this campground. This KOA is very convenient to the Corn Palace and is easy on/off of the main highway. It had a nice pool and clean laundry room as well as a playground and miniature golf for the children. We would recommend this campground for a short-term stay while seeing the nearby attractions.

This is a very barren, open campground with absolutely no shade but it is centrally located and convenient to all of the area attractions in Hill City, Rapid City, Rushmore area, and even Hot Springs. We had a level, pull-through site with ample room and the utilities were good. We did not find the office/store hours convenient as they opened at 8AM, which we felt was late, and they closed at 6:30PM, which is early if you have been out sight-seeing. The store was very sparse, but there is a fuel and convenience store right up the road. The pool, which was small for the number of sites, could have been cleaner and better maintained. There were two laundry/shower/restroom areas. The one in the office building was preferable, having been recently upgraded. The other, toward the rear of the campground, appeared to be under renovation and needed better maintenance during our stay. Cell phone and WI-Fi service are spotty which is typical of the Black Hills area. Because of the convenience to the attractions, we would not hesitate to stay here again.

We found this to be a lovely campground with delightful, welcoming owners and we enjoyed our 2 night stay here while venturing to Devil's Tower and Vore Buffalo Jump. The facilities are top-notch. The laundry is clean and air-conditioned with a rolling cart, folding table, and ironing board. It is one of the best we have encountered. It is adjoined by a game room containing two TVs, a pool table, and ping pong. The was very clean and had a water slide which was a big hit with all of the children. The office has an inviting gift shop and some supplies. Most of the sites appear to be level and roomy and ours, on the upper level, afforded a lovely view. There is a nice tent area with individual fences for privacy and the current owners are making constant improvements to keep the campground up-to-date and appealing.

We stayed here one night because of its proximity to Little Bighorn Battlefield Naitonal Monument and Custer Battlefield Museum in Garryowen. The campground was well-maintained, clean and neat, and we had a level pull-thru. The sites and interior roads are gravel but the mile-long unpaved approach road is very rough. Take it slowly! Check-in was efficient and they offered free ice-cream treats to take to your site. We saw very few shaded sites. We would not recommend a stay longer than a day or two to see the nearby attractions.

We were especially impressed with this campground's immaculate individual shower rooms that included a large shower, vanity sink and toilet, with towels provided to use as bathmats. It is a little tricky to find and enter this campground, so watch carefully for the sign and be aware of the tight turn in off the main road. We had a level pull-through site and the utilities were good. There are some lovely views from the perimeter of the park. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly, and the campstore was well-stocked. We would not hesitate to stay again if we were in the area.

We chose this park for its close proximity to Denver International Airport, as we were picking up family members there. Unfortunately, we arrived on July 4th incurring a two hour wait on the entrance road, due to the large volume of local day visitors, before we could get into the campground area. We understand that most other days there is little problem getting in. Once into the campground we found the pull-through sites to be spacious and well spread out. The sites are concrete pads and level and we had no problem with the utilities. Our stay was quiet and enjoyable. We were relieved to find that ice and snacks were available at the campground registration office, although it was not on their literature. Be aware that in addition to the nightly camping fee there is a $10 transaction fee added when making a reservation, which is an absolute necessity. Also, the camping fees do not include the cost of the daily park pass, which is an additional $9.

Our eight nights at this park were exceptional. On a rating scale of one to ten we would give it an eleven. It is a beautifully laid out campground. The sites are shaded and extraordinarily spacious. Each one is like an island oasis surrounded by hand built rock walls with small pocket gardens. This is the cleanest and best maintained campground we have ever been to, as well as the most tranquil. Everyone, including the managers, owner, staff and long term residents were friendly, welcoming and helpful. All of them take pride in their campground and we felt immediately at home in their midst. Although a twenty minute drive from Colorado Springs and its attractions, it is well worth the trip to stay here. We hope to be able to return in the future.

New owners have recently acquired this campground and are actively upgrading and updating the facilities. They have installed cable and plan to have a pool ready in the immediate future. Their laundry is large, air conditioned and clean. The owner was extremely friendly and welcoming but was up-front about allowing smoking only in your RV, not on the grounds or in the buildings. The sites are easy to access being large and roomy. Ours was level but all are in the open. We felt that this was a good spot for a one night visit while travelling through Kansas, although a bit highly priced for its current state of development. When the amenities are completed it should be a better value for your dollar.

Although an older KOA, we found this campground to be clean with extremely friendly hosts. We were escorted to our nicely shaded level pull-through site for our one night stay. The campground was easy to find from the interstate and easy to access. We would return here if the occasion arose.

We stayed in this small, cozy campground for two nights and were impressed with its nicely landscaped and well-maintained appearance. There is quite a bit of noise from the interstate close by, and there are few amenities: but if you are looking for a clean, tranquil spot in a country setting for a night or two, this is a great choice. We had a long, level pull-through site.

This campground is easily accessible from I-70. We had a long, level pull-through site which was quite roomy and we liked the fact that the sites were offset and approached from alternating directions. However, we would have preferred not to have shared utilities even though they worked well, with the exception of low electrical voltage due to the high use of air conditioners, because of the 95 degree weather. Even though we didn't use the pool, it looked sparkling clean and inviting. We would definitely return to this park if in the area. We stayed one night.

The only positive we can say about this campground is its proximity to the Eisenhower Library and Museum, which is only a block or two away. This is a bare-bones campground with most of the sites in an open field. We had a long, level, pull-through site fully exposed to the hot sun and Kansas winds. The campground is in poor condition overall, although all of our utilities worked fine. The owners are attempting to sell the campground and the storage facility which shares the property. If you need a place to stay for one night, it is bearable.
