This park is conveniently located to the Grand Ole Opry, Opryland Hotel, and many other tourist attractions. It is clean, and well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is ample green space to curb your dog, but because the park is smallish, there is not a lot of walking/exercise area. Wi-Fi worked great and so did cable/W/S/E. Over-all this park is very nice, and certainly provides all the necessities and more. There was even live music on the weekend. However, I found the sites a little close together, and the over-all feel of the park to be just slightly rough around the edges. Certainly a convenient and pleasant place to spend a few days. Rate reflects Good Sam discount.

This is a nice little park, located approximately 15 minutes from Truro, NS. The owners were very friendly, and accommodating. The sites were level, and the park was very clean. Although the sites are side-by-side, there is so much open green space that the park has a very spacious feel. The Laundry and washrooms were well located and extremely clean, and trash receptacles were conveniently located throughout the park. There is a large play area for the kids, and a very nice swimming pool. In addition to the pool, the Debert River runs right along side of the park. Some of the tent sites are riverfront, and and there is a small beach access within the park for swimming and tubing! Very nice. An added convenience was that they sell propane. We travel with our dogs, and found plenty of green space to walk them. We would definitely return. Nice park.

This is a small campground, and although it is basic, is terrific. The owner/camp hosts were two of the nicest, most accommodating people we've met. They were just great to us, and saw to it that we had the perfect spot for our needs. They were also very helpful in setting us up for a whale watching tour, and giving us suggestions for good places to eat in Digby. The campsites are wide and roomy, with lots of grass space in between. Our site was level, and most of the others looked the same. W/S/E Services were strong and worked fine. We were at the end of the park, and got a good Wi-Fi signal most of the time. It seemed to drop out at night, but return in the morning. There is a sweet little swimming pool, and a miniature golf. And, there is a walking trail behind the park that was great for the dogs, or taking a walk into digby. Wish there had been a fenced dog run in the park, but not so lucky as that. There is no camp store to speak of, but shopping is just minutes away. The Bay of Fundy is right outside the campground, and it was fun to see the tide go in and out twice a day. Very dramatic. We didn't use the laundry or washrooms, so I cannot comment on them. If you don't need a lot of bells and whistles, you'll be happy here. We were here for 4 days and would definitely return.

While this park is not perfect, it is very nice. It is a little pricey, but you get a lot for your money; including location, location, location! The check-in was well organized, and the camp hosts were very informative. There is even a daily orientation meeting for the DC area attractions and public transit. For us, it was our placement in the park that made the difference between an okay and a great stay. We originally got a spot toward the back of the park, which I found a little rustic. However, the staff was more than happy to move us, and really great about helping us find a suitable spot. Ultimately, we ended up with a spot that really suited our needs. The park is very large, and located in an urban area. But, the grounds are tree lined, and well landscaped, giving it a park like feel. There are 2 pools, which have lifeguards on duty, a cafe, game room, large laundry room, and many other amenities. Wi-Fi worked great. The subway is a 10 minute bus ride away, but the bus stops right inside the Cherry Hill gate at regular intervals. Then it's just a 20 minute subway ride to the National Mall area. Very easy to navigate. The camp hosts were super informative and helpful. One of the things I liked most about this park is that it is extremely dog friendly, and offers 2 big fenced dog runs so that the dogs can go off-leash. There are plenty of additional green spaces throughout the park, and nicely paved roads for safe leashed walking. I give this Cherry Hill two thumbs up. We stayed here for 10 days in a motor home, and would definitely camp here again.

This is one of the nicest RV resorts that we have ever stayed in. Check-in was orderly and a breeze, and the camp host was very professional. This resort has a very park-like feel. Our site was level, and roomy. I didn't see any that looked uncomfortable. Each site had a fire pit and picnic table, and there were LOTS of activities for both adults and kids. The roads are paved, with lots of open green spaces, which made walking my dogs a pleasure. But there are also trails for those who like a little more nature and less pavement. The park is located about a mile away from the Casino complex, but there is a really convenient shuttle that will get you to and fro very quickly. It was very easy to use, and runs 24/7. We booked services at both the spa in the Casino and the spa at the Lodge, and both spas were excellent. Bring your bathing suite and go early if you get spa services, because the sauna/steam room, whirlpool, and mineral pool are all worth a try and so relaxing! These spas have everything you could want. Very Posh! The only thing that would have made this park any better, is if they had a fenced dog-park where the pups could go off-leash. Otherwise, this park gets my highest rating.

This was a very nice, small campground. It is situated close to shopping, gas, downtown Brattleboro, & parks. It is close to the interstate, but not so close that you have interstate noise. There is even a really excellent farm stand next door within easy walking distance, where I stocked up on fresh veggies, cheese, and yummy baked goods. The grounds were well maintained and clean, and the camp store had an unusually broad variety of goods to choose from. There was adequate green space to walk our dogs, and a big dog run in which we could let them play and do "their business" off-leash. The dog run is a little secluded, so you really have to look for it (far side of the office building). The camp host were very cordial, but not overly friendly, and the Wi-Fi worked great. We didn't use the washrooms or laundry, so I cannot comment on those.

This is a really nice campground. The grounds are extremely clean & well maintained and the staff could not have been friendlier, or more helpful. The pool and playground area were beautifully manicured, and inviting for just relaxing or having a full day of play. Site was level although a little tight lengthwise with our towed. Plenty of room in between campers, though. The tent sights were very private, and I thought you'd really feel like you were wilderness camping staying in one of them, as apposed to being in an RV park. Lots of pretty foliage all around. The washrooms were well located, but we didn't use them, so I cannot comment on those. We travel with our dogs, and there ample green-space to walk them. The only improvement I could suggest for this park would be to have a small fenced pet run so that the dogs could do their business off-leash. Otherwise, this KOA gets my high recommendation.

Wow, what a find. This place is a slice of heaven. Our site was oceanfront, with a spectacular view. The oceanfront campsites have no services, but it was a trade off worth making. Serviced sites are set back a bit, but almost every campsite appears to have a view. It looks like the owners took pains to accomplish this. The grounds and surrounding area are beautiful, and immaculate. Everything about this park is well planned. The restrooms were clean, and the wifi worked great. There is a lot of green space for kids to play or to walk the dogs, and the beach is clean and easily accessible. The office staff was exceedingly nice, and very helpful, as were most of the campers we met.

This is a very basic, small park, and it is essentially a gravel parking lot adjacent to the Inn, however, it is quite adequate and the best in this area. The sites are level, and wide. W/S/E hookups were well located, and water pressure was super strong. This park is waterfront, and there is a small beach area. The RV sites do not look directly out over the water, but there is a view, and oceanfront is just a few steps away. There is a large manicured green space, which made walking the dogs a pleasure. The bathroom facilities were immaculately clean, and trash receptacles were well located. An added bonus is the Beggars Banquet which takes place nightly on the property, and is quite a lot of fun. It includes entertainment and a seafood supper. Also, the entrance to the fort is just a very short distance away. The management is extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay and were very comfortable at this park. We would definitely stay here again.

I am having a hard time deciding how to review this park. It has good points and bad, but over-all, I am really disappointed. Pros - It is located very close to the US/CA border, so was very convenient after a long day of traveling. And, the office staff is very friendly. We did not use the wash-rooms or laundry, but they do look clean at a glance. There is a pool, playground, and Wi-Fi. Cons -Island View has gravel roads, and since it was raining when we arrived, they were very sloshy. Wi-Fi signal is strong, but extremely SLOW. Sites are grass, a bit tight, & ours was not level. Mostly, I just found this park depressing. It impressed me as being a not-so-lovely trailer park. There are lots of long term patrons who seem to have been here for quite a while, and their sites reflect it. I get the impression that these folks are full time residents, not seasonal campers. I generally don't have a problem with long term tenants, but these creeped me out a little. I didn't see an entrance to the ocean view, but I suspect there must be one toward the rear of the park. Adequate for an overnight stay, but certainly not a destination.

This is by-and-large, a very nice park. It is extremely family oriented, and located just minutes from the beach. The office staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the campground staff and security were present both day and night. There is a nice pool which seemed to be very popular with the other campers, and the Wi-Fi was good. We did not use the comfort station, nor laundry so I cannot comment on those. Our site was a back-in, and was easy to get into, and level. We camped at this park In-Season, and it was very crowded. Everyone around us seemed to be having a good time, and were in good spirit. The only things that I did not like about this park were that the campsites were somewhat close, and that there were so many campfires going that my Motorhome smelled like smoke inside. The park is dog-friendly, and they even gave us tags with our campsite number on them for the dogs. However, while we had ample places to walk the dogs, there was no designated dog run. A fenced doggie area would be a welcome addition for pet owners in a park of this size.

This is a very nice park, and we camped here for 4 days. It is well maintained and extremely clean. Our pull-through site was very level, and it was easy to park our 38 foot coach. The park has many long term seasonal patrons, but there were several short term campers like us. The sites were spacious, and ours had a cement patio, picnic table, and fire pit. Lots of shade, as well. Everyone we met in the park was very friendly. The general store was well stocked, and there is a nice playground for the kids and, a swimming pond that looked to be very popular with the other campers. We did not use the comfort stations nor the laundry, so I cannot comment on those. We travel with our dogs, and there was ample space to walk them and for them to do their "business." The park is serious about cleaning up after your dog, and reflects it, because there is little or no dog waste to be found on the ground. They do provide bags for this purpose. Although this park has activities for children and seems to welcome them, it was a very quiet and adult friendly. The park is located very near to the town of Clinton, and to shopping and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice State Park and Campground. The are lots of activities for all ages; boating, a beach, golf, hiking, cycling, and an equestrian center. This park is huge, and beautifully maintained. The guy who checked us in was not very friendly, but the camp hosts were just great. The positives -> gorgeous grounds, lots to do, easy 15 minute drive into Birmingham. Negatives -> Lazy check-in clerk, No 50 amp power, and we had an ant problem. However, the positives far exceed the negatives. We highly recommend this state park as a destination.

This is a really nice, small park. It is conveniently located right next door to Graceland, and is very well maintained. The office staff was friendly, and the grounds were great. The sites are Parking Lot style and level. Although the sites are somewhat close together, you certainly have enough room between sites that you don't feel like you're on top of your neighbor. There is a small pool that seemed to be very popular with the guests, a children's play area, and I think I saw a small golfing area. We travel with our pets, and when we first arrived I got a little worried because I didn't see a grassy place to walk the dogs. However, I soon discovered a WONDERFUL green, park-like dog walk toward the rear of the facility! It was large, convenient, beautiful, and immaculately maintained. What a bonus! The laundry facility was very clean, and well appointed. We did not use the shower room, so I cannot comment on it. We really liked this little park, and would definitely stay there again.

This park is a jewel! The park is beautifully wooded, with plenty of shade trees, and sits on the Ross Barnett Reservoir lake. There was a lovely pool, and really nice tennis courts. The park hosts were also very friendly and helpful. Plenty for the whole family to do. The RV sites are very wide, with lots of room between campers. We travel with our dogs, and this was a great place for them. Lots of places to walk, and plenty of green space for them to do their business. The Park was clean, and I did not have to "watch my step" because of other pet waste. We did not use the bath-house, so I cannot review it. We spent 3 days here, and I felt very safe. We would definitely stay here again. An added bonus is that the park is very near grocery stores, and shopping, so getting extra supplies was easy.

This RV Resort is GREAT! It has everything you could want; its clean, has active security, a bar/restaurant, plenty of well maintained dog runs, and park, 2 lovely pools w/ waterfall, putting greens, and friendly people. The bathrooms are immaculately clean, as are the laundry areas. It is located close to restaurants, the airport, and the Las Vegas strips is just minutes away. It has level cement pads plus parking for your toad, and enough room between you and your neighbor. They even host poker tournaments and movie nights in the club house. We will definitely stay here again. The only complaint I have, is that some of the front desk staff are not too great. They gentleman who took our reservation lost it, and then he stuck me in a spot that was exactly the opposite of what I requested, but a quick trip back to the office and conversation with a different staff member, and we were set up like champs. Just re-confirm your reservation, and you should be fine.

This is an interesting place. It is predominantly a retirement village, with long term residents and snow-birds. However, they do maintain an area strictly for short term RVers. The short-term area is very adequate. There are pull throughs, on sturdy, level gravel. There is ample room between sites, so while you are close, you are not on top of your neighbor. The whole park is manicured and landscaped nicely. There is a dog run at the back of the park, and the neighborhood just outside the park is an excellent walking spot as well. There is a dog friendly section of the park, and a dog prohibited section of the park. Desert Sands has a wonderful pool and hot-tub area, and a huge laundry facility. There is a club house, and many more amenities. The staff was friendly, and helpful. Most of the people we met were just delightful, but in a park this size, you are bound to find at least one negative neighbor. She complained about me having too many dogs, but the staff was very courteous to us, and just asked us to walk them separately so that the number was not so obvious. All in all, a very good stay. Would return here again. BTW, take in the MIM (Musical Instrument Museum) if you go to Phoenix. We spent a wonderful day there!

This is a great park! It was conveniently located, and a quick trip to get to most parts of Albuquerque. The facility and grounds were very clean, and the staff was super. There is a very nice gift shop, and they serve continental breakfast every morning from 8-10. Sites are level concrete pads, with ample space between you and your neighbor. Hookups were easy. There is a nice mix of full/semi full-timers and short term residents. The shower/restrooms were ample for the size of the park, and immaculate, and so were the laundry rooms. There is a very nice pool and hot tub area, a big fenced dog run, and a children play area. There are shade trees in some areas, and landscaping. We felt extremely safe here, and enjoyed the stay immensely. We will return.

This is a great little RV Park! It is very small, but has wide, level, concrete pad sites. There is a nice sized patch of grass between each site, and a well kept picnic table. The grounds are manicured, and have newly planted trees and rose bushes. There is a small laundry room, and clean shower/toilet facilities. There is no fenced dog run, but there are ample grassy areas to curb and exercise your dog. You can walk them throughout the fair-ground, and even into a nice little neighborhood across the street. There are strict "pickup" rules, but as a result, the grassy areas are a pleasure to walk through. This park is well situated, and close to downtown Napa, and many vineyards. The camp host is very friendly, and made some wonderful suggestions for vineyards and restaurants that we might want to visit in the area. I would recommend this park to anyone, and we will return on our next visit. Put this park on your "Yes" list.

OMG, don't walk, run away from this horrible place! These people should be fined for deceptive advertising. This place is a dump! I agree with the other reviewer; if reprobates, druggies, & sex offenders are your crowd, you will feel right at home. All others steer clear. This "park" is located in a densely populated residential area, and not near anything but a laundromat that charges $4/load. The sites are cramped, and on gravel that gets very muddy. The park advertises that it is dog friendly, but there is no dog run, and every grass or mulch area is filled with dog and cat excrement. Obviously, picking up after your pet is optional. The only place we found to walk our dogs was a rather sketchy parking lot just outside the grounds. They do provide basic facilities; laundry, rest rooms, showers: but I was too afraid of being mugged to go in. The garden settings and "lodge-like" community room shown in the website photographs are idealized beyond belief! The manager was very accommodating, but that could not make up for the horror of this awful place. If we had not traveled so far, and it had not been so late, we would have left immediately. We could not get out of there fast enough the next morning. If you were down on your luck, and had no other place to go, you would still think twice about going here. RVers beware!

This is a very nice RV Park. These grass sites are wide, level, and firm. We had plenty of room for our pop-outs and tow vehicle. The grounds are clean, and well maintained. There is a children's playground, laundry, and plenty of picnic area.The staff was courteous and helpful. There is plenty of well manicured lawn, and space to play or exercise you pet. There is a pool which we did not use, but it looked clean and inviting. Rocking A is located right next to a Wal-Mart, which I thought was going to be a "down-side," but this actually turned out to be great! We just walked next door and brought home fried chicken for a picnic supper, and purchased supplies for the next leg of our trip. A very pleasant experience for us all, and a reasonable price!

The pickings are slim in this area, and I would try hard to avoid it if at all possible. This campground seemed the to be the best choice around, but was still pretty dismal. It felt a lot like a gravel parking lot. The sites were overgrown with prickly weeds and burrs. The park advertised Pet Friendly, but the pet area was so dirty and overgrown that our dogs didn't want to venture in. We ended up taking them to the only usable patch of grass, which is located in front of the check-in office. Wi-Fi was available, but slow. Not the worst, but certainly not the best.
