Great National Park campground... no hookups but large 3-drop dump station with potable water. Very generous (large) site, wooded for some shade. We were in B59 and it stayed shaded all day. Campground is next to the famous Cades Cove loop - we rode our bikes around the 11-mile loop and saw bears, wild turkey and deer. Reasonable generator rules (8am-8pm, not continuous). Horseback riding, carriage rides, ice cream, bike rentals within walking distance. General store with pay phone. NO CELL SIGNAL. Make a reservation and come on by!

This campground is great! Big generous sites that are almost all pull-throughs. Popular with everyone from families to retired couples, tent campers, pop-ups, travel trailers, fifth wheelers, and big Class As. Lots of bike riding opportunities, and plenty of space for walking dogs, etc. Grocery store is 5 minutes away and downtown Savannah is about a 20 minutes drive. Lots of shade. Would give this place a "10" but shower stalls lack hooks to hang clothes and towel, and no place to put soap and shampoo but on the floor. BUT... there's cable TV! Would go back there for sure. Highly recommend.

The above rate includes taxes. This is one of the best-priced campgrounds in the area. Wireless internet access is an additional charge: we paid $10 for 6 days. This is campground is in a quiet rural residential area along the Niagara River. The sites are a little cramped but the campground is very pleasant. One of the two dryers was broken during our 6 day visit. Their pet policy in terms of allowed breeds is strict. Definitely NO pit bulls or pit bull mixes. Looks to me like this is a good place to tent camp also. The center of Niagara Falls and the tourist area is a 15-20 minute drive, so the location of the campground is good. But no public transportation. They also have 10 or so little motel rooms that are very basic but are affordable. Friends of our stayed in a motel room while we stayed here. We would stay here again.

The above rate includes the add-on cost of internet access ($10 for 3 days). This is a very large campground with a variety of sites, but they all seem to be at least good and many are excellent. There are several seasonal sites but they were fairly neat and tidy. The laundry facility is clean and functional. We did not use the bathrooms or showers. This campground is situated in a rural area, away from public transportation. If you don't have a vehicle, be prepared to take a taxi to the GO station or whatever. Aside from transportation, this campground is within 30 minutes of downtown Toronto and is a great place to stay to visit the area. We would stay here again.

This rate covers the cost of camping only. We did not have to pay the day use fee of $6/day because we told the young man that registered us that we would not be leaving the park during our stay. This is a nice campground with large sites and a very nice beach on Lake Huron.There are oak trees everywhere but they have been thinned enough to give an open feeling. I was able to use my Verizon phone and USB modem, although the signal was weak. Unfortunately, there are no, none, zilch trash cans at the campground except for the ones in the bathrooms. So you can guess where the trash ends up. The host told us this is because people kept stealing the trashcans. Hey, how about a 1000 lb dumpster? That would work. So you either hoard your trash, which is not good, put it in the bathroom (no good either), or you drive/walk about a mile to the dumpsters at the entrance. We don't have a car and so only made that walk once. The other issue is that the 30 amp service is flaky. During windy weather, the power kept going on an off. Despite the trash can and power issues, we would stay here again - it really is a nice place.

This nightly rate is for a water and electric site, and based on paying in cash rather than by credit card. This is a very nice RV park. It is well laid out with spacious sites, well-manicured grass, and lots of pine and oak trees for shade. The facilities are clean and very functional, and the camp hosts are friendly. Wal-Mart is just a stone's throw away, so it is convenient for groceries, etc. Good Verizon signal and excellent wireless internet signal (site #24), but we could not pull in any TV stations. This RV park is focused on adults, but you can bring children with you if you're willing to accompany them everywhere and keep them entertained. We would stay here again.

We stayed one night in the overflow area. After sitting through a 10 minute briefing delivered by a very stressed camp host, who hammered the Base Commander's stance on safety and security ("watch out for the SPs, watch out for fires, watch out for hail, watch out for tornadoes" and so on) we were sent over the to overflow area in the hope we would get a regular site the next day. Interestingly, the overflow area backs right up to a very unsafe environment. An open field with 3-4 foot tall dry grass, which is a fire waiting to happen in that SD high wind environment. After that uptight briefing from the camp host and spending a night at the edge of hades known as Overflow, we were happy to get off Ellsworth the next day and find a campsite in south Rapid City at a cooler, much more relaxed campground that is closer to everything and only for $2 more a day. As a proud Air Force retiree, I will certainly stay at other military campgrounds in the future, but not Ellsworth AFB.

The rating and nightly rate above reflects the Treed Site area. The first time we stayed here we disliked it because we stayed in the lower, "parking lot" area that has full hookups. It was dusty with no picnic tables or fire rings. But then we came back through and stayed on the upper ridge or Treed Site area instead, and this was very nice. These site have power and water hookups with a dump station nearby. We saw large 5th wheel trailers up there, along with several coaches up to 36 feet long. This treed area is very nice. Pioneer RV Park is the only RV park we've ever been to that actually has a Dog Wash! That is actually why we went back. And we would stay there again, but not in the parking lot area!

The $22 per night includes the day use fee ($6). We stayed on the east side and this is a lovely campground, wide and deep graveled sites, many with shade trees. There are beautiful Blue Spruces all around and well-kept grass areas. There is a nice playground for the kids. Site #45 is the best, in my opinion, but all the sites are at least nice. My only criticism is that there are no water spigots around the campground. You have to go to the bathhouse and use the spigot mounted on the outside of that building. The lake is gorgeous. The young lady who checked us in was very friendly and efficient. We would stay here again for sure!

This is a nice campground that is a lot like a National Forest campground: spacious sites, lots of trees. The sites are pull-offs on the side of the road. Cool and very private. We had a picnic table and a fire ring. We also had a mother and two mule deer fawns come and visit several times. It's very pleasant here. We would stay again!

Great place! No hookups but if you go there prepared for that (full fresh water, no waste in tanks) then you'll be fine You can run your generator whenever, once its not during quiet hours (10PM-6AM?) Large, generous sites with lots of Cottonwood trees. Very pleasant and helpful camp hosts. Great view of Devil's Tower. Would definitely stay here again!

I'll go back to Yellowstone the next chance I get but I would not stay at Fishing Bridge again if you paid me. The check in process was awkward and there was a cluster of RVs all tangled up in the check in area when we got there. The sites are crowded together and the roadways are narrow. There are no picnic tables, or even room for a table and so you have to put your grill on the ground. The majority of sewer pipes are ELEVATED 15-24 inches so you have to empty your tanks against gravity. We would have been much happier staying at one of the other campgrounds with no hookups.

This is a nice campground! Lots of shade, good size site. You can easily walk to the St Mary Visitor Center, where you can also get on the park's shuttle. Although there are no hookups, which is typical of a National Park, you can run your generator during meal times and there is a convenient dump station. We arrived with a full fresh water tank and empty holding tanks and did not have to dump at all and so the lack of hookups did not bother us. We would stay here again.

We ended up staying here when we could not get space at the campground on Ellsworth AFB. As it turned it, this was the best thing that could have happened to us! The facilities were spotless, the owner was very friendly, our site has some shade and the location was outstanding! Also, it is 3-4 degrees cooler here that at the base, with much less wind. We got a site with just power, water and easily lasted the whole week without having to dump because we used the campground showers instead of our RV shower. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend Tee Pee Campground and RV Park.

The rate reflects a Good Sam discount. The young man who checked us in was very nice and helpful. Some sites at this park are much better than others. Our site was marginal: a little small with neighbors on both sides. One set of neighbors was a family of around 8 people who appeared to be living in a car, plus tent, plus truck camper. We were uncomfortable with them being right next to us. We felt very overcrowded. We could not put our dogs out because of there were so many people milling about. Thankfully, they left the day after we arrived. Not sure we would stay here again, unless we got a better site.

This RV park is in a lovely setting. The park itself is not very groomed or particularly polished but it would be hard to beat the location: right on Sheridan Lake in beautiful British Columbia! We found the office folks to be very pleasant and helpful. We had site #47, which is a pull in (not back in) site on the waterfront, at the end of the row of sites. Consequently, it was very private and quite spacious. They do have Internet access but you need to ask about it when you check in. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for 4 nights and would return. This is a very large park and so things such as shade, hook-ups, etc., vary throughout. The laundry facility, restrooms and showers that we saw were very clean and usable. The park is a little crowded, hence the "8" rating rather than "10". The staff at the front desk varies in terms of helpfulness, but that is to be expected. Overall, they were at least OK. You can catch a bus into Victoria at a bus stop close to the park, so that is good if you don't have a car. I was able to use my Verizon phone. We would stay here again. Be aware that the round trip ferry ride from Port Angeles for 2 adults and a 31ft motorhome was $300: pricey.

This park is wonderful! We stayed only two nights but would have loved to stay longer. We were able to get a walk-up site for our 30' motorhome with no trouble: directly overlooking the Strait of Juan de Fuca. But by the next morning, the place had pretty much filled up so you should reserve a site if possible. Check out their web site for more info. Salt Creek Rec area is paradise for children also. Crescent beach is nearby and there are plenty of tidepools to explore and enjoy. My Verizon broadband modem worked. The dumpstation is well laid out and easy to access. We did not use the restrooms but based on how well everything else is maintained, I would imagine they are clean. We would most definitely stay here again!

The manager was very pleasant to deal with, but I would not stay at this RV park again. Most of the customers are long-termers. Some look as though they have been here for years. The cops showed up one night, but not sure why. The sites were cramped and the whole park has an over-crowded feel to it, which made me quite uncomfortable. It was difficult to find areas to walk the dogs and let them do their business. Northern California is wonderful, but we will stay somewhere else next time.

The sites are so close together that we could not put out the awning and our picnic table was literally on top of our neighbors sewer hookup. Although we did not use the restrooms or showers, I observed that people had to walk up a steep hill and go over to the more permanent section to use these facilities. They are not convenient at all. All that said, this park is very close to Yosemite's South entrance. If staying in this campground is your only choice for visiting Yosemite, then go for it. Experiencing that wonderful park makes the campground issues of little consequence.

This is an awesome campground if you don't mind dry camping! Numerous big roomy sites - most with good shade. The sites are graveled and very clean. There are sites of various size and shape to suite everything from a tent to a camper van to a fifth wheel to a large motor home. You can run your generator except for quite hours (10:00 pm to 7:00 am). I checked out one of the restrooms (chemical toilets) and it was very clean. There is a water spigot outside each toilet building but is it not threaded and so you cannot attach a hose. I was able to use my Verizon cell phone and broadband modem. There is a gas station and cafe a few yards down and across the street. The Grand Canyon North Rim entrance is a beautiful 40 mile drive. I would give this campground a "10" except to dump and/or top up your fresh water, you need to visit the private campground about 4 miles away. Not sure what they charge because we did not have to do either.

This campground is expensive but extremely nice. Paved roadways and sites, with graveled areas between sites and around outer edges. Pedestrian sidewalks and plenty of parking for cars. Very well maintained and extremely clean. Excellent amenities, including kennels. About an hour from the Grand Canyon, with plenty to do in Williams, walking distance from the campground. Lots of area attractions, in addition to the Grand Canyon.

This KOA was OK but could be better maintained. The roadways are not paved... could be nasty in wet weather... and the dog park could use some sprucing up. We only stayed one night and did not use any facilities. Based on some phone calls I made prior to going to this KOA, I suspect this campground would compare well to others in the immediate area; if Silver City is on your travel agenda, this KOA would be a good bet.

This campground is just a few yards from the Interstate so it is noisy. Once inside our motorhome, however, we really could not hear anything. This is a bare-bones place with very nice owners/managers, but should be used only as a base camp for a short stay to visit area attractions such as the Painted Deserts and Petrified Forest. We did not use the restroom or shower so cannot comment on them. The Wi-Fi connection was very good at our site, #22. I would stop here again if in the area.

This is a very nice campground with modern, clean and well maintained facilities, including two good-sized fenced dog parks that are irrigated to sustain a nice carpet of grass. The park is covered with crushed concrete/gravel so there is only minimal dust - this is a real bonus in any desert-located RV park. The only thing that could have been better was the WiFi service: it was up, it was down, it was up, it was down, and so on. Even when the service was up, the upload bandwidth was throttled so we were unable to upload photos to Shutterfly. All that said, this issue would NOT stop me from staying here again.

This is a nice National Park campground with no frills. If you are a willing to dry camp than this is very nice. There are clean restrooms but no showers. Potable water faucets are situated every few sites and so are pretty convenient to where ever you are. There are some sites with great shade, some with OK shade, and some with little, if any shade. I saw Class A's as big as 35 foot in the sites and there is an outer loop where you can situate bigger rigs. There is also a No Generator area if you don't want to listen to the hum. Saw campers from tents to pop-ups to pull-behinds to 5th wheels to coaches. The biggest issue with camping here is the climate. By early May, when we were here, daytime temps got up as high as 106! Best time to visit is in November. Early April would probably be good also. There is a store about .5 mile away with usual merchandise, including beer and ice cream, gas, and propane. Also, pay phones and free WiFi, which is good because there is no cellular coverage at this campground. IMO, this is a much better place to be than the Rio Grande RV Park, which is an asphalt parking lot with hookups. I guess it depends on what you like.

This is a great little campground! Very clean restrooms and showers, good internet connection, very friendly and helpful owners. If you're visiting the Smokies/Cades Cove, this is a very convenient location. There is horseback riding in the area, tubing, and more. Great fun for kids and adults. We would definitely stay here again. NOTE: this would be tight in bigger rigs, but our 30 footer was fine and we watched a guy position his 34ft 5th wheel. Site #12 is the THE BEST.

We stayed here in early October. Most of the sites are well-shaded with pine trees and have pretty close access to the man-made lake. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bathroom was nice and clean. I would stay here again but probably not at peak times because it would likely be a little too busy for me.

Well maintained with a friendly and helpful staff. This KOA has a nice dog park area. The campground itself is close to numerous Nashville attactions and activities.
