This park was very nice to stay in while we worked to help the Red Cross using our motorhome as a base during the tornado restoration work that we did. Each pedestal at each site has a 30 amp as well as a 50 amp hookup, with good electricity and has good water pressure also available. In addition, there is a dump station in the park as well. Virtually every site is fully shaded, with parking on asphalt large enough to place all wheels of a 40' motor-home off the grass. As instructed we called the Police Department for permission to stay and the Lady there suggested that we might prefer to come to the Police station to avoid any potential hassle with regards to paying. We understood that the Police are busy, however we regularly saw them patrolling the road alongside the park, but we knew that we should pay the $10 nightly fee, and so we took her suggestion. Our stay there was uneventful, peaceful, and we would stay there again.

This is a very nice park with many amenities and under different circumstances, we would definitely give a higher rating. However, we are in the landing/takeoff pattern for Luke Air Force Base, and there are literally hundreds of F-16 Jets based here. The following information comes from the Luke AFB Website: "The millionth F-16 Fighting Falcon flying training hour at Luke Air Force Base was reached March 13. F-16s first touched down at Luke AFB on Dec. 6, 1982. To date, Luke has graduated 18,164 F-16 fighter pilots. Approximately 2,000 F-16 hours are flown a month by Luke pilots and students." We believe that virtually every flight out of Luke goes directly overhead of this RV park, and the noise is deafening and incessant. We would definitely NOT stay here again, as these jets fly night and day, and with no discernible pattern. Our nerves just simply would not and could not stand it.

The address of this location is 516 W Kansas Avenue, Greensburg, KS. It is a very basic RV lot that is used primarily by construction workers and permanent residents. It is adjacent to an apartment building that looks new, and apparently is owned by the same people. No one is usually present, so we filled out a payment envelope found in the laundry and dropped payment into a slot. The restrooms were clean as were the showers, but the campground was not. We spent at least fifteen minutes cleaning up poop adjacent to our hookups from the tenant next door and their dog. There were a couple of other dogs tied outside with no one apparently present at their site, and one of them barked at anyone present. The utilities were OK, including the 50 amp at some sites, although the sewer hookup was a piece of pipe in the ground covered with a rock, which is the way that it is done here. The Wi-Fi works very well, but the password is written in pencil on a piece of paper in the laundry and then crossed out and replaced by one that does not work. To visit Greensburg this may be the only option in a camper, as we did not see any other during our visit. Not fancy, but did work for us.

Can't think of any reason to give this park a lower rating. Virtually everything is first rate, and we enjoyed our stay. Sites are great for pull through and for big-rigs with plenty of room between. All utilities working as expected and hoped for, including Wi-Fi which usually is our pet-peeve. Check-in was very friendly, and help with routing to our next stop was excellent. We would definitely stay here again.

This campground is small with 35 sites, and not very new, but with paved streets and sites. We found it by doing a Google search of RV parks in Cave Junction as it did not appear in our regular sources. The others in town seemed to have problems with electricity or no Wi-Fi from the reviews, so we kept looking online and found this one. Not fancy at all, but good 50 amp electricity, and good Wi-Fi and our satellite dish on the roof found good TV so we had everything that we needed. We have a big-rig and found that several of the pull-through sites would have worked for us. Most residents here appear to be full timers living in mostly older rigs and with sewer hook-ups, while the pull-through sites have water and electric only. When we arrived, there was no-one in the office, so we filled out a form and dropped our check in an envelope. We never did see any one in the office since we left early the next AM. If we were to come back into this town, we would stay here again, however this park probably warrants only the overall rating given here.

Although this park is small it is a very nice place to spend some time. Wi-Fi now works great after a recent upgrade; 50 Amp and 30 Amp connections at every site; hookups and all utilities worked great including cable which we tried out, but did not use. Our HD satellite antenna on the roof of our motorhome worked great in site #18, although some sites are behind trees and in those locations would not work. Suggest asking for a site with a satellite reception view if that is your preference. Our site was not shaded which is also our preference, but many of the sites are. The park is located alongside the very nice Rogue River, and the only negative that we could find was that Interstate Highway 5 is across the river and is a noise distraction. I noted that we quickly became accustomed to it, however, and it did not affect our ability to sleep at night. The staff and management here are very nice and friendly and cooperative, and we would definitely stay here again.

Arrived PM, and after hours without a reservation, however nice notice on door indicated one site available, which we inspected and moved into. Office does not open until 9:30 so couldn't pay until then although we had plans for earlier in the AM. Overall not a bad park, although sites are very close together and it appears as though this park is mostly full. Wi-Fi mostly not working; could be due to large number of residents. Park staff was very helpful with touring information, especially of the Columbia River Gorge and very friendly. We would probably stay here again, although reservation is recommended. Not a great park but not too bad, all in all. Rate was $40 but we received a discount.

This is a very nice, very well run very well maintained campground with owners that care about the place and their customers. The WiFi worked great for us while here, and the site that we had was satellite friendly. They even asked if we wanted a satellite view, which we did. The landscaping is very nice as is th access to the lake, and their boat rentals. We would stay here again.

This smaller park is run by very nice folks who have worked hard to make it better, and those efforts have paid off. Twelve new sites, all professionally designed and built are pull-throughs and with full hook-ups for Big-Rigs and are very nice sites. Roads are somewhat tight for bigger rigs, but passable, and maneuvering was fairly easy. It's very quiet here, access to the National Parks is easy, and if we are ever in this part of the country again, we will stay here.

An older park with smaller sites, though some big rig sites are available. Very friendly staff was very accommodating and helpful. Wi-Fi and all hookups worked well, laundry appeared clean, and although we didn't use the restrooms we presume they are adequate. We did have some difficulty getting into our site in a 40' motorhome, but staff helped a lot, and we made it rather easily after they showed us how to do it. If in the area we would stay here again. Suggest reservations as the park was full the entire time that we were there.

This is a nice park, except for one thing. We needed internet access while we were there and theirs absolutely did NOT work during our entire three night stay. That was bad enough, but the attitude of the desk attendants was that they only provided Wi-Fi as a courtesy and they were not going to report it to management. One lady behind the counter even said that it was a city wide problem; however we found Wi-Fi working all over town. The real problem was their attitude. It was as though we were a bother and shouldn't ask. Since Wi-Fi is easily fixed when you know what you are doing, we found this attitude intolerable. We won't bother to ask again. Other than the Wi-Fi issue, it is a nice campground though a bit pricey. It is very close to town and well maintained generally with good hook-ups. Fixing the Wi-Fi and an attitude or two would give this campground an eight rating.

In our ten years of traveling, this is the absolute worst park we have ever stayed in. It is a dump! There is junk piled everywhere, and the roads are full of holes making it very difficult to move the motorhome about. We actually did not feel safe here, and some of the residents seemed to us to be from a drug culture. We didn't actually see any drugs, but believed that they were present. Would not walk this park after dark ! The lady at the counter was very nice, and very helpful, but we absolutely would not stay here again. Wi-Fi only in the office.

A very well maintained park with very good/friendly staff at the desk. Excellent sites with full hook-ups. 50 amp and 20 amp at our site which was level and well groomed and with space between sites. In addition, we noted that they spaced us at every other site whenever they could to give us additional space between. Laundry facilities and restrooms are well above par. We would definitely stay here again.

We are local residents who occasionally use this campground for a get away. Its nice here and the park hosts are always friendly. As is true with most campgrounds, some sites are much nicer than others with water views and nice quiet areas. We have our favorite spots, but would stay here even if we couldn't get the site that we wanted. This is a park run by a municipality and is typical, but its wide open and friendly and we like it here.

Our nightly rate based on monthly stay. This upscale park has recently been sold and is now an Encore Park. Many concerns have arisen as a result of the sale of this property, and changes will definitely occur. The swimming pool is the nicest we have ever used in any RV facility and is kept at a steady consistent 82*. The dining room is one of the nicest in the valley, as is the ballroom. This has been our eighth year of spending the winter at this resort, and we have always been proud to say that we stay there ... We hope none of that changes.

This is an excellent park with great security and access to I-70 if traveling cross country. All concrete everywhere as the ownership of this park has been in the concrete business and has been successful which is reflected in this very nice park. We can't think of anything negative at all to say about this park, and will definitely stay there again.

This Corps park does need upgrading as do the roads as others have noted, and water levels are down dramatically, but site #75 down by the Lake is delightful and peaceful and relaxed. The electricity is excellent as it usually is in Corps parks, and so is the water pressure. Gate personnel are very helpful, and would have let us switch sites of we wished, and were very cooperative and friendly as well. We will stay again here if given the opportunity.

We admit that park personnel at this RV park were friendly and helpful initially, but when we ran into a verified high voltage problem with the park the manager would not admit that there was an issue that needed to be addressed. We have an electrical management system in our motorhome which shuts down power to the rig at above 132 volts, and which did so several times. Using the Lakeview RV park's voltmeter with the manager present, as well as my own, we confirmed about 280 volts in the pedestal wiring which supplies power to the 50 amp outlet, and 140 volts in the wiring supplying power to the 30 amp outlet. All of the expert opinion that I can find, and it was substantial, indicates that these pedestals are out of those power company specs which I am told should be 120V +/- 10% or +/- 12 volts. Those specififications using this formula would permit a maximum of 132 Volts allowable, and voltage at 140 volts is substantially above this level. Since the park manager admitted to me that they had checked three additional pedestals and found the same voltage at all, they assumed that there was no problem. I talked to three licensed electricians, as well as to other experts in the field, receiving eight total opinions that this situation is a serious problem. I believe that the real problem with this situation, however, is that park management would not believe that this is a problem. They told me, with witnesses present, that they have been having substantial electrical problems. However, all they could say was that the only time that they had ever seen this particular problem was with large motorhomes. There are a large percentage of trailers and fifth wheels in this park, and I believe that none of them has the capability to detect electrical problems to the extent that many large motorhomes do. I believe that this situation and this park management attitude will only change when one of these units has a fire or perhaps burns to the ground. I believe that the excessive voltage present could burn up light bulbs, TV sets, refrigerators and other sensitive electrical units and could cause other electrical problems. We had paid for a week's stay but left three days early, and of course they would not refund our money. Their only comment was that since I believed that the voltage was too high, that we should leave the park, which is what we did. This is not the kind of RV park that I ever wish to visit again.

We stayed here for two nights and although its certainly not a great park, it was pleasant and friendly. There were 30 amp hookups with water and a dump station which we didn't see. The location is excellent, as its very close in to the Mackinaw City area and the staff was very friendly. We would stay here again if visiting this area.

Its hard to complain about free. We discovered that there are two 30 amp hookups next to the parking lot, and a half dozen or so sites with 20 amp hookups which are back away from the parking lot and near some trees. All sites are on grass, but automobile owners may park to block in a big rig making leaving more difficult. However, we left in the morning and the parking lot was nearly empty, so no problem. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. By registering for a Rewards card I received $10 gambling credit, and since Friday night was ladies night, wife received $15 credit. We might stay here again. Considering the price, its not a bad place at all.

Its hard to review this campground because the people running it are all very nice people, and knowledgeable, but the park is what it is.. SOO Lakes Campground is an older one with infra-structure that needs updating, so those nice people must be very frustrated, as were we. This Labor Day weekend the park was nearly full so its apparent that it will survive, but not without problems. The electricity is inadequate throughout much of the park with only 30 amp connections, but worse than that, when a few air-conditioners begin to run on warm days the voltage gets pulled down drastically, potentially causing situations which could cause electronic damage to newer rigs. One camper had an electrical management system which was designed to cut off power to his motorhome at 104 volts, and that system terminated power to his rig four times in about twenty minutes. He used a voltmeter at the pedestal and verified that his system was giving accurate voltage readings, confirming the cut-off point. The owner of the park used his voltmeter and the two readings were almost identical. Voltage below 104 volts could adversely affect the air conditioning units that most RV's have, for example. I wouldn't want my HD TV sets running on voltages that low. There is also very high water pressure in this park, and pressure regulators are a must, but there was no indication from the owners of this high pressure which we think is somewhat negligent on their part. We actually saw two hoses explode while visiting the park. At a minimum, a notice posted by the campground when checking in the campground concerning this water pressure could be posted to help prevent this situation. The Wi-Fi in the park seems to be non-functional most of the time, and we were forced to use a Verizon card which had nearly reached our monthly data limit. The campground's system would have been very helpful if it had worked, but alas it did not, for us anyway. Other RV owners that we talked to confirmed this situation. On the positive side, there are about fifteen sites facing the St. Mary's River which are beautiful sites. and are available provided reservations are made in advance. We suggest several weeks ahead, and some folks stay there for the summer and actually book those sites months in advance. We might stay here again, but would want to know that the site that we selected had an upgraded electrical system. Otherwise, we cannot recommend this campground.

This fairground type campground was adequate for us, as the electricity here is superb and we are used to dry camping without it if need be. The State park campground was not suitable for our big rig with satellite antenna on the roof, although we tried to stay there. The fairground campground had a very nice camp host available and about six sites were being used. For the $ it is a good deal, and we would stay here again.

After driving through this park in our toad (towed vehicle), we decided to not stay here. This is a very shabby park with many many sites occupied by very rundown trailers and motorhome units that could only be described as junk. Whether these units are used as fishing camps for nearby waters wasn't clear but we did comment to ourselves that if we were ever "on the run" from law enforcement that this would be a place to hide out. The park is accessible by a long rough road (route 215), and the trees overhang and make it appears as though a big rig would have some difficulty moving around and under the trees. There were no sewer hookups visible anywhere, but we did see a "Honey Wagon" vehicle which we presume could be used for dumps. We would not recommend this park under any circumstance, and spent the night in a nearby Church parking lot.

This is a very nice park. The restaurant is excellent, the cable TV is great, and the WiFi even works from time to time. We have checked out the other parks in town, and this is definitely our first choice. There is a show in the evenings in a tent on the site that is included with a lobster or crab dinner and it is wonderful. No trees is a plus for us, as we will not camp under a tree, but some shade would be nice. The waterfront view is spectacular and we actually rode our bikes to the Fortress which is a definite MUST SEE.

Moderately priced park in the woods, with nice atmosphere. We normally don't like to be in the trees to protect the roof of our motorhome, but decided that two days was OK. Was tight entry to our site winding in and through the trees in our 40' motorhome, as we followed very nice guide in golf cart. Made it OK, however. Friendly here, with stop on trolley at entrance, owner gave us (at our request) a recommendation for an excellent restaurant which we thoroughly enjoyed. We would stay here again, although we are just passing through.

Our time spent at this park was very pleasant, and we were here for four nights. The Wi-Fi works well, and better by far than most parks that we visit. The cable TV was also excellent, and as I notice negative reviews on the TV reception, I must state that ours was excellent. Management of this park is trying hard to make this a nice park, and the recent addition of the showers and bathrooms (which are excellent), make this a substantially improved park . We will recommentd this park, and will come back again.

We paid a reduced price rate of $13 due to my being over 65. The rest rooms were not very good, and the showers were worse. The park personnel were friendly and helpful, but the check in process is excruciating. They use the Reserve America reservation system and it can be and was be slow and tedious. We would probably not stay here again, however, the bike riding and walking and hiking are both very good. There are things to see within the park, and since we were with friends, we had a good time.
