This park required some limited navigation off tollway, and I was overwhelmed by the expansive pine tree coverage. Asked for a satellite friendly site, which was not friendly and not even close to my hook up capability. (I carry 20 fit of hose). Had to move after set up. Asked for a site behind me (sparsely populated sites) so that I could just back up and was told I would have to pay more for the patio on my already expensive stay. Overall sites are small, unlevel and not grassy. Think I will stay someplace else when in the area.

This park is up front that it is an Adult park with little or no amenities for the kids! If you are adult and traveling, it is a great stop for a night or season as they are popular with both types of visitors. Very friendly. You will need to request a satellite site if desired, as they are under a hill on the sw side. We stayed twice in July.

Very typical KOA with all expected amenities. Glad to have solid 50 amp service when temps are over 100F. Has good shade and very pet friendly. New management since our last visit.

This is a rustic campground between Hill City and Deadwood on route 385. Sites are tight but they allowed empty spaces between our 40ft plus coaches. They have cabins available as well, and a store/restaurant on site. Very nice location with good satellite and Wi-Fi but limited cell phone coverage on site.

This campground has seen site improvements over the past few years and continues to an easy assess, effective stop at somewhat higher costs. There is little grass at pull through sites and some highway noise but that was no surprise. Nice pet walk area.

I was pleasantly surprised at this Passport America campground. Very easy site access and hookups with 50 amp service. Great overnight spot in the heat for only $22 PA rate. Much better value than other sites along I-90. Will stop again if schedule amiable.

This park is in a great location, the folks are very friendly with several activities. We enjoyed our month stay. We were in the older section which required paid cable or remote sat dish which was not a problem. Local stations are easy to get as well. Internet Wi-Fi is limited to be kind. The electric bill was over 200 for month of Feb. (we like it cool.) Next time I would prefer the newer lots towards the front with bigger pads and include electric at a higher cost. I am being truthful here but understand that we really liked the folks and had great time with new friends and will likely return.

I can not rate this campground as a 10 because the sites are very tight, took an hour to check in, and most importantly, our wireless was not functional for over 5 days of our two week stay and no one apparently cared. Every day I asked for sense of urgency in rebooting their system but nothing happened for 5 agonizing days. We attended a rally and did not come for the "free" food. We will return for the rally next year in spite of the campground.

We stopped going south and turned on our water system. Had heard about about the junk yard noise before 5 and the potential highway noise, but no one ever mentioned the nigh time helicopter assaults over our roof. We laughed and went to sleep anyway as we were too tired to care. Will likely stay here again in the future as it is a convenient stop.

This park had some previously high reviews but we were not that impressed with the overall condition. It is an adequate overnight with full services on a gravel parking lot. They have a large dog run available. Probably would not stay again.

This park is a solid overnight stay with all amenities available for a price. The newer sites are very narrow and terraced and would be questionable for a longer stay. They served wonderful cookies at your site after you check in and try their pizza as it is delicious. Like it enough to stay both directions on our snowbird trip.

Very acceptable overnight stop with all utilities working well. Easy access. We spent the night on tornado watch with all the residents. There was some initial confusion with the work campers still needing some instruction for emergency procedures. Overall we would stay here again, but without the tornadoes.

I rated this park as a nine for a year round stop and shelter in very tough area in the winter. It was wonderful to come and get full service in Feb in mid-Illinois. Even the water hookup was nicely winterized. This will be a regular stop for this snowbird. I am sure that is also very nice in the summer with the fishing lake.

As all have said, this is a very nice park. Very reasonably priced, not really close to Branson but that is fine. Words of caution: no ATT cell service on site. Had to drive a mile up the hill to use cell. Internet was good however. Had very nice hospitality on Friday nights.

Nothing here unless you are attending rally. Infrastructure is crumbling. Need major updating. Will not return if our rally group does.

Park was as advertised with no surprises. Good utilities. It was a bit out of the way for us as we were heading south. Not much close by to visit. Good overnight on I-80.

Location, location, location. These are the main strengths of this campground. The sites were a little tight and somewhat deteriorated, but the utilities were fine and the 50 amp service was very welcome in the heat wave. Food was not worth the cheap price. Great fireworks display on the 3rd. Overall probably the best overnight opportunity on I-35 in IA.

This is an off the beaten path location which is absolutely beautiful chain of lakes. Boaters bring your boats. This campground has many seasonal sites but does offer a special new street of back in sites with full hookups and good satellite coverage. Campground has marina, launch, indoor pool and bar. They have no dedicated website so a call is in order. We will likely return to this area.

Nice park in the woods. Had a pull though site and managed to sneak in satellite TV between trees. It is a little of the east west path but seemed worth the 8 mile drive down. Outlet mall in town if you are into that sort of thing. Would stay here again.

We came in late, left early and met no one. Very efficient stop for us. Note the arrows on the site map as they do alternate directions. Don't ask why I bring it up! Although now has cable TV, local digital TV is good and no problem with satellite.

The campground has all of the amenities for a destination campground with heavily wooded lots and tours. We were looking for fast overnight spot and found the campground farther than anticipated from the interstate with high traffic congestion upon getting off the road at the end of a long day. No sure of other options in the area but think this is a better destination stop.

Nothing special but served the purpose without any problems. Close to Flying J fuel stop just off tollway. Not many choices in this area. Facilities offer good level sites and 50 amp full hook ups.

Really a well run campground with lots for the kids to do. They do have a way of adding up extra charges like $3.00 a night for second dog! Overall we and my grandkids really enjoyed the location and went tubing in the Platte River (extra charge of course). Very few motorhomes but many seasonal RV sites on the river bluffs. Very busy place.

This is a great overnight campground just off the Interstate. Easy in late at night and the "new" owners continue to amaze me with their many improvements. Everthing you need plus a nice newer pool and patio. Been stay here on overnights for six years.

Nice, scenic location which is central to many attractions. Nothing fancy but everything was functional. Energizing walk up the hill to the office which I tried to avoid. We used the toad to travel about.

The campground was well run and easy to set up once you travelled in from the main highways. They should add GPS coordinates to ads as you can not load given address. We enjoyed the people on our one day overnight stay. Close to Freeport shopping and good food. Would stay again. Like most KOA facilities. No bad surprises.

This was by far the greatest campground value on our 4,000 mile trip. Very nicely laid out, full up-to-date FHU sites. Had cement pad on our pull through and the lawn areas were manicured. Stayed with our Passport America 17 dollar rate. This one is a keeper for future reference.

It was a nice park with many activities for the kids. We were just overnighting and looking for basics and we found them. I think I had the same check in guy as the last poster. Was not helpful or friendly.

Nice campground in nice location. People were very friendly and great open areas for pets. You must try the lobster rolls just down the street at a great price (3 for 20 bucks)! Entertainment was available all three nights we were there.

I paid dearly for oceanfront lot ($100) with FHU but the campground was not what I call resort caliber. The grounds were not spectacular but rather un-mowed, dusty dirt roads, and many empty campsites. Maybe they are too proud with their prices. In any event the campgrounds offer all that was advertised but was far from being a resort is my opinion. Many seasonal campers from seasonal workers in the area.

Wish I had read reviews before staying here. I can echo all the negative comments previously. We arrived in a dust bowl and left a mud bowl after a modest rain. Sites were muddy, not level, with no grass area (only drained mud puddles). What a mess! Still cleaning up motorhome. Keep driving or stay in the nasty Flying J parking lot in Fargo rather drive in the 2 miles plus of gravel farm roads. Even got lost leaving due to detours for construction.

Very scenic overnight stop just east of Bozeman on 90. Nice hilltop view with many trees and no highway noise. Offer some pull through sites which are somewhat tight with foilage and leveling requirements. Overall a very pleasant stop along the way. Wifi was spotty with a tough canyon location. We would stop here again vs alternate sites available in town.

Very nice campgroung. Others have stated assets correctly and we plan to stay up to a week. Nice location with beautiful sites in the open area with sprinklers and easy sat access. TV is very doubtful. Bring sat or videos for the kids.

This is a urban location very close to shopping. This is an older location that has been well cared for and made up of many pull throughs. Very helpful staff who help me during a mechanical problem on my rig. Can not say enough good about staff. There are mobile homes and seasonal sites but do not be shocked. Very well maintained and a very nice pool area. Very busy location.

I had not stayed here in a few years and was shocked to see the new upgraded pull through sites. All new layout and utilities in the back forty. Great cable and easy sat. access as well. A little price but was undoubtedly the best in the area for quick in/out overnight. Employees were friendly and very helpful.

Very nice, newer park with paved roads and sites. Very substantial structures with pool, tennis, basketball courts. Nice gift shop and even a breakfast nook for extra fee. Excellent sat signal. Only negative was very long grass...maybe too much rain. Again nice stopover or destination park.

We are never disappointed in this campground. It is well kept with all paved, curbed sites in a nice setting which happens to be next to Mystic Lake Casino. All sites are 50 amp, and the wireless system has been greatly improved over the past year. Reservations are getting a little more challenging as this park is discovered by locals who looking to save fuel staying close to the twin cities.

Very high end park with many million dollar coaches residing. Very well kept and offered detailing at a reasonable cost. We were there for the cherry festival with much going on in town. Only negative is the wireless internet. Very unreliable and frustrating with constant dropping off. It was like a multi-million dollar facility with a 50 dollar wireless system which no one seemed to acknowledge or care.

Great little campground with accommodating owners and meticulously maintained. Beautiful climate when we were there. Planned on a one night stop over and stayed for two. Stayed because of RV Park Reviews comments and they were right on as always.

This is nice private campground in the northern suburbs with some nice open grounds and several ponds and one lake with a beach. They do offer many full hookup sites with 50A and the wireless worked great from my site (36) and Sat. TV also worked well. This is rather rustic but nice campground with dirt roads in the approach and throughout the site. This is the reason for the eight rating vs higher. Overall very nice and we made reservations for a couple weekends this summer. They do fill up so call ahead.

This park is really a 11 on a scale of 10, however I gave them a 9 because they don't really have a cable system and is extremely limit (we got two channels)... Bring your satellite as it works great here. Otherwise this park is perfect, outstanding facilities for kids and adults. Very well kept and substantial infrastructure make this one of the top sites in the upper midwest. We will return again and again.

Very basic parking lot type of campground next to a sewage treatment pond. Only redeeming value is an affiliated marina with acess. Will likely not return.

This park is a sleeper. Very laid back with paved streets throughout and tall shade trees. Only real drawback was lack of internet as well as few satellite compatible sites due to all of the trees. Park even offers access to 46 private acres for atv's. River is low this year so boating is not possible except light paddle boats. Don't be turned off by permanent trailer homes as you drive into park as they are separated and not really part of the campgground. We are definitely returning with the grandkids.

Sites were tight and dusty as you might expect in the desert. Nice gift shop, pizza available to your door, and nice movie theatre for kids at night. Wireless was totally undependable and needs to be addressed.

Pull through sites were a little tight but alright. Nicely shaded and landscaped. We were there for a quick overnight and found it as expected. Might be a little tight for extended stays.

Very nice setting in the tall whispering pines. Owners and mgt were very nice and accommodating. Ask about trimming limbs so I could open my awning and they responded immediately and took off the limbs. Very friendly environment and met some great folks. Hope to return with grandkids in future. Really nice clubhouse for playing pool and socializing. Open year round by the way. Very relaxing visit, if not the most relaxing stop on this two week trip.

This was a late night stop over which was fine. Easy access and set up. No frills but a very pretty green campground on I 70 just west of Topeka. Very convenient to highway, but no noise down in the hollow...except for trains at the far end. Not a problem for us, with air running.

We really enjoyed the park. Especially our premium site 70 which featured a private grass lawn and good satellite reception. Great breakfast offered. Wifi was a little funky and unreliable. Supposedly a new system. Great location overall. Only negative is all of the dust from campground traffic. Hope to stay again sometime.

Older campground being rebuilt by new, younger owners. Nice folks who are trying hard to please. Big rig sites, all new utilities, great free wifi. negatives are: limited cell service, very sandy with little grass. Beautiful views and a great overnight stop on the way to other areas.

I gave them a 6 because of the positive attitude of the newer owners. Very nice people. The park itself is a parking lot. With my 39' rig I could extend my slides but nothing else. No chairs or awning room, unless extended into the road. Good location but too tight. Should have listened to previous reviewers.

Great overnight spot with great shade trees and good utilities. Because of trees I could not extend awning but really did not need to. Nice restaurant down the street, Walmart in town, and flying J a mile away. Not bad at all.

Really enjoyed meeting the onsite owners. Even cooked our supper near closing time at the restaurant. His wife was our cook and daugther our wait person. Great food and great people who could not do enough to make us happy. Facilities are established and being upgraded. This is a nice jewel along a baren I 80. We would definitely stay again.

Small park for Outdoor Resorts but still building. What is completed is very nice and all amenities were available and working. Excellent shopping available in Cashiers and Highlands. An excellent little wine shop around the corner. Will continue to visit various Outdoor Resorts properties.

Biggest issue was the attitude of the management which was noted by several guests. Site for a 40 foot MH was a 90 degree turn in with untrimmed trees right on the corner and patio at the other corner which damaged my roof. The site was crushed rock and small concrete patio at the back of the site. We will never return. This is my worst rating ever given a campground, due to the management.

I rated only a seven only because it does not offer all the usually amenities of newer campgrounds. However all services were very much up to date with 50 Amp full hook up sites available in quantity. It is located just off exit 134 and a mile east on I 80 frontage road. A little close to highway and does offer some noise but is an oasis in Chicagoland where full hookup sites are not readily available within 33 miles. This is a great overnight stop.

Very nice shade, grassy sites but a little dusty due to the unpaved roads. They had free wireless although we could not get it from our site. Very comfortable campground and we ended up spending another to unwind. Don't forget to go downtown the IGA for a great deli and some of the best potatoe and tomato salads ever!

Very well kept park conveniently located in a quaint town with everything you will need. Nice paved, shaded sites. Only major negative is the railroad, but did not bother us inside MH. Other negative is that the many tree prevented sattelite reception.

Very basic campsites with much gravel/rock and no grass in the MH areas. Some pull throughs were too tight for my 39 foot plus toad to make the turn. Everything costs extra but have lots of activities for kids. Biggest claim is location next 6 flags. Has many, many cabins and not so many MH. Entrance road is not for the weak of heart as it is very narrow, winding, and steep. Probably will not return.

I camped in a 39 foot MH and found the roads a little tight. Nice area with some trees close to Minneapolis. Did not use indoor pool as it was a little slimey. Never could get WIFI to work and found little cooperation or interest by mgt. Satellite reception was spotty from my pull through site. May stay again sometime, but not my favorite area campground in the twin cities area.
