Free cable, free Wi-Fi but it didn't work. Our Verizon Mi-Fi card worked extremely slow here at this park. Water pressure is HIGH at this park-90 p.s.i, they tell you to use a water regulator when you come in. You MUST call ahead to say you want to use Passport America and it's CASH only, no checks or debit cards accepted. Cement pads, sites close together, dusty when temps are dry and there hasn't been any rain. No frills park, no pool, no amenities, but a nice overnight stop. Freight train tracks nearby, but only heard one during the night.

Rate reflects Passport America. This is a decent park for an overnight destination. No frills park: no pool, no clubhouse. Sites are roomy between neighbors. Mostly pull through sites. Park is quiet and close to shopping and restaurants. Sites are gravel, mostly level, but we had to maneuver our big rig (40 ft.) back and forth a bit to get level because of sloping gravel. New trees aren't mature enough to provide any shade yet at individual sites, but it's nice to see that they have planted them. All the mature trees are surrounding the outer perimeter of the park. Nice office staff, friendly and made you feel welcome. Good Wi-Fi if you are within a few sites of the office. Full bars on AT & T cell phones. Free cable, lots of channels compared to many RV parks.

I would not call this park big rig friendly. A 40 foot motorhome would have difficulty passing another regular vehicle on the narrow road into the park and negotiating roads in the park. Gravel sites are HILLY and getting level could be a problem on some sites. Roads curve in and around the park. You definitely would not want to tow your car into the campground. It's a pretty park but really more suitable for smaller RV's.

Tight, close together sites and short, barely enough room to park your car behind the rig, even though they have some pull through sites. No frills park, no pool, no clubhouse, no laundry, and nowhere to go to get out of the rig for awhile. No place to ride a bike for exercise other than to ride up and down the streets of this small park. Sites were cement pads. No patio or room really, to sit outside without being right under your neighbor's window. Cell signals fine, Wi-Fi was VERY sketchy (did not work reliably at all).

Rate is based on a monthly stay. This is one of the prettiest parks we've stayed in. The clubhouse is beautiful. There are wicker padded chairs to sit under ceiling fans under the portico at the clubhouse. There is a really nice fitness room with great equipment in it. Beautiful tiled showers and bathrooms. They have cabin rentals, too. The clubhouse has DSL connections and cubbies for you to sit with your computer if you like. Nice laundry facilities, one of the best we've ever seen with VERY reasonable prices and machines that work. Great location on the north side of Houston for traveling and visiting the area. Visit the Woodlands while you stay here. Sites and streets are all concrete. Great, friendly staff will help with anything you need. Activities available at the park earlier in the season but not during the hot summer months. You'll have to go visit Houston for entertainment and Old Town in Spring. Wonderful pool but very small. Close to a nice Krogers for groceries without having to get on the frontage roads or main highway.

If you don't mind staying in a park with zero shade, this might be a great place to stop. Facilities are top notch, with a lodge just for the RVers staying in the RV section of the casino park. Pool is beautiful, they had a poolside DJ while we were here for a couple of days. Park is in the middle of nowhere, and it's a weird drive to get here on all kinds of back roads, but no problems with big rigs. The park is big, spacious and plenty of room between sites. In a few years, all the little trees planted will provide more shade for each site. It's a great price for full hookups and the "lodge" for RVers is a nice touch. We definitely would come back to stay for more than just a couple of days.

This is a small park with outdated bathrooms and showers that are being remodeled. Tent campers are mixed right in with big rigs and travel trailers, not a problem for us. Gravel and grass sites fairly level, but we did have to look for a level spot, they aren't all that way. Good cell phone signal and internet mi-fi card worked fine. Road is narrow coming in and unhooking tow before coming into the park entrance is recommended. We would definitely come back to this park. It's a plain, Jane kind of park but nearby access to the seashore is worth it!

There are several COE parks at West Point Lake. This one had one of the best AT&T cell phone signals and internet access on our mi-fi card. Sites were level, we didn't have any problems getting in or out with our 40 foot rig.

This was a beautiful park. We did not have trouble getting into a level site down by the lakefront. They have a little separate gravel pad for your car to park. Excellent for riding a bike around the park roads, nice shade for when it's hot. Other park facilities available to be used. Nice playground for kids. Tennis courts elsewhere in the park if I remember right. AT&T Cell phone signal was very weak, almost none at the site. Our mi-fi card worked but it was SLOW and not worth using much.

This is a park that's trying hard to recover from previous owner's lack of caring about the park. Unlevel gravel and dirt sites abound, it was VERY difficult to find one that enabled us to get level. We tried two sites before having luck and then we had to borrow wood to beef up one side of the rig. This is the campground Freightliner picks you up from if you are attending the Freightliner's chassis class. The park has added thousands of dollars of gravel in attempts to make the sites better, but they have a long way to go to getting things straightened out. We probably would not stay here again with as much trouble as we had. They do have a nice camp store and the staff is very friendly and goes out of their way to help you with any thing. Other than the very irregular sites, it's a nice park.

This is a motorcoach only resort. It's back in the boonies on a narrow country road ending up at Lake Greenwood, a very nice lake. The landscaping is gorgeous, done by Park Seed Company. A VERY pretty rectangular pool, a fantastically decorated clubhouse, new laundry facilities but small. It's a VERY classy place. Unfortunately, it's in the middle of nowhere and quite a drive to get to shopping, about 20 miles. It's also a very hilly park all the sites are terraced, but have level, concrete pads. Almost every site has a beautiful view of the lake. The owners take you out on a pontoon ride once during your stay if you so desire. They were giving away FREE six nights' stay at the last RV show we went to, so we stayed for our free six nights and loved it. They are wanting you to come and see and stay long enough to get a feel for the park. No sales pressure at all. If it wasn't so far from shopping areas, we'd definitely think about a lot purchase.

VERY shady...helps keep the air conditioning from being overworked. Curvy narrow short lanes leading to rows of sites. The lanes are not big rig friendly but sites are plenty big themselves. They gave up on the pool, totally algae filled and not open. A couple of small fishing lakes at the back of the grounds with a resident alligator in the "lake", more like a pond. Poor AT & T cell phone signal, had to go outside all the time for calls. Good Verizon mi-fi coverage. People with satellite dishes had trouble getting channels. We paid for cable (15.00 week) in order to get channels on tv. Outside the park VERY economically depressed area. There is a KOA campground on the other side of the road coming into the TT Oaks at Point South Campground, they have a wine tasting bar and cafe and welcome visitors from the TT campground to the cafe and wine bar. We liked the park and would return.

Old RV park on its last legs..beautiful setting, but dirty abandoned trailers towards the back of the park, clubhouse roof makes the building look like it should be condemned, old, ripped tarps, exposed wood. Depressing looking park. We stayed here for free as part of our membership in Thousand Trails. We would not stay here again, except for an overnight stay. Bathrooms were in terrible shape, rusty mirrors, open electrical face plates with no covers over them, soap scum on the shower fixtures, the whole place needs a makeover. It could be a truly beautiful park with the big old live oak trees...plenty of shade, that was nice! Pool was decent. Sorry to be so negative.

Expensive place to stay, we came in on a special, but WOW! what a place! 2 huge pools, state of the art fitness center, spa on premises, entertainment almost daily and nightly, bar/restaurant on site, classes of all kinds, zumba, fitness coaches, you name it, this place has it. Fantastic fun, don't even have to go anywhere, there is an excellent library just down the street and a great fresh produce market as well. You can ride your bike for miles just staying inside the park! Fishing pond...Check out Ocean Blues in downtown Sarasota for some wonderful music venues and great food. This is a Good Sam park so they will discount a little.

We came in for a weekly special. Grassy/gravel, mostly level sites, nice pool, nice laundry. Great bike riding outside the park in a nearby residential neighborhood. Two pools...very nice. Not many shaded sites, the ones that are are backed up near the highway and have a lot more noise. No problems with MiFi or cell phones (AT&T).

If you have a camping membership, they put you in one of their tighter, not so desirable sites. We were hemmed in on both sides by park models. Very little room for sitting out, wish we had pushed for better site, they were available. Small pool, but pretty. Lots of park models and long term residents. Older park. Not far from the beaches at all, about 30 minutes. Great kayaking around the Wabasso Causeway. Roads inside the park in need of repair.No problems with MiFi or AT & T cell signals.

One of the most beautiful parks we have ever seen. Activities, minor league ball park within walking distance. Three pools, three hot tubs, gorgeous landscaping, beautiful clubhouse, resident sandhill cranes, level concrete sites, plenty of room to get mileage in on your bike, close to major shopping and stores. No problems with MiFi or ATT cell phones. A destination!

A terrific location to explore the Everglades area. No showers, no water, come in with a full tank. Central pond has resident alligator. Beautiful sites, very spacious, very open, no shade. Verizon MiFi worked intermittently, but we were able to publish our blog every day. Over the air TV non-existent, AT & T cell phones no signal. We loved this place! You can kayak in the Turner River nearby (lots of alligators).

Our rate was due to a camping membership purchased at the Tampa RV show. Sites are tight from row to row, but not side by side. Lots of different activities, one of the most beautiful pools we have ever seen with tiki huts, marina next door. Tight turning in the park for big rigs but we did OK (40 ft.). Tight turns due to extra owners' tow vehicles outside their rigs. On-site cafe with decent food. Shuttle bus outside the park to get to Key West. Truly a vacation in paradise! No bugs to speak of, and just geckos running around. Visit Sunset Grille close by for great food and sunset watching!

Senior pass discount rate. Electric only, no water, no sewer, a LITTLE snug getting our 40 ft motorhome (4 slides) into a spot, but not impossible. The road coming into the park was in terrible shape, (maintained by the county?). We had to drive about five miles an hour for several miles before reaching the campground, the road was such a washboard. They don't grade it enough, I guess. Great campground for visiting Yellowstone. Lots of trees, beautiful shaded sites. We loved and would definitely stay here again.

Rate reflects Passport America. There is no shade here but a few occasional pine trees in the park. Gravel sites not too close to each other. Huge laundry attached to the RV park, fast wifi, our Verizon air card was extemely slow, but that might just be our setup. VERY nice friendly staff. Terrific park for visiting Yellowstone.

No pool, but one of the prettiest parks we have ever stayed in. Landscaped with perennials and garden statues everywhere. Price reflects Good Sam discount. Price covers water, sewer, electric, cable and wifi...great deal! Sites are spacious and big rig friendly, no problems getting in. We loved this park and will definitely stay here again. I THINK it's open year around but you might want to double check that. Friendly staff makes you feel very welcome. Park has a neighborhood feel to it. It was a wonderful stay. We were only going to stay a day or two, ended up staying a week we loved it so much.

Sites are fairly close together. Trash is picked up daily at the curb, we felt the water pressure was low compared to most other places we stay, but they had the best wi-fi ever! Faster than lightning! They have a laundry, DVD rentals are available. They allow you to wash your RV if you need to, which was appreciated by us, but not important to others, I'm sure.

This is a smaller campground has a limited number of RV sites which are fairly close together, but no problems getting in for a big rig (We are 40 ft with four slides). Full hookups, no laundry, rate is cheaper Mondays thru Thursdays. BEAUTIFUL golf course right there, friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay. It's a great overnight or a couple of days place to stay.

Friendliest, warmest "neighborhood" feel motorcoach only RV park we have ever seen. People stop by and introduce themselves all the time. Classes offered in all kinds of stuff-crafts, line dancing, jewelry making, model airplane building, tons more. There is no line between "owner" and "renter" here. Terrific entertainment and planned dinners, we have never met such wonderful people! Volunteers keep this park running smoothly. Beautiful pool, 20,000 sq. ft. clubhouse, top notch fitness equipment. Even though it's in the middle of the state, in the little town of Webster, there is PLENTY to do.There is golf near by. Big cities are an hour's drive away if you need major culture and shopping. We love this place and will be back again next winter!

Sites are very close together, you don't feel like sitting outside with the neighbors so close, at least we didn't. Some of the RV sites are right at the side of I-75 so there is a LOT of traffic noise. If you are on the other side of the park, you don't hear the road noise. The laundry is new, the park is situated on 20 acres of scenic state forest. There is a nice pool but wide open to everybody parked around it. Nice staff, very friendly and welcoming. Five miles from Florida's biggest flea market in Webster.

Spacious sites, nice paved roads (not to be confused with another older RV park right across the street), outdoor laundry, great park for bike riding, nice pool but a little on the small side, beautiful shady sites. No problems getting in with a big rig with four slides. We would definitely stay here again. Town of Cedar Key has cute restaurants and shops. It's 8 miles from the park. They honor Passport America for one night.

This is a deluxe motorcoach park without the "snotty" atmosphere that so many of the luxury coach only parks have. It's a very small park, under further development by the owners. We have never been more welcomed and made to feel at home than we have by the owners. They are struggling to get the word out to get people to come. It's a little out of the way on county roads but really not as far as it seems to Pensacola, Gulf Shores, etc. We had overhanging branches when we pulled in, they came out immediately and trimmed them. The patio pads are a little smaller than the big RV parks, but the park is a WONDERFUL place to stay for awhile. It's going to be even more beautiful when more sites are developed. What's been done so far is fantastic! The owners put on a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner for the residents that was awesome! We loved it here and will definitely return for a longer stay next time.

Fantastic amenities, bike riding, hiking trails, HUGE swimming pool, beautiful tennis courts, definitely a destination for the winter as long as you don't mind the possibility of cooler temps! This is a 6100 acre park, family friendly and just a great park. Alabama should be proud of this gem! There's even a nature center on the premises; boat launch and fishing available, too! Rate reflects "on the water" which was a canal, and it was a senior rate as well.

One of the most beautiful COE parks we've stayed in. Small laundry, nice shower building, pretty sites, great for riding your bike in and around the park, shady, river access. Area surrounding the park is VERY poor, large town of Prattville has everything you need in the way of shopping for staying at the park. This is definitely a destination park if you want to kick back and relax and stay awhile. No sewer but there is a dump station.

No amenities here, just a place to stay overnight very close to Mammoth Cave. This is an old, small campground. Rate reflects Passport America. We didn't have any trouble getting in with our 40 ft. motorhome, but driving back to site is a little tight, on a narrow gravel road. Owners are working hard to spruce up the campground and make improvements. They were VERY friendly and a delight to talk to. They really care about making your stay a pleasant one. We would stay here again. It's a rural, quiet campground.

There were a limited number of 50 amp electric available, and limited water hookups during our stay. This is a beautiful, shady fairgrounds but most sites are grass. We were here for a rally during a heavy rainy week, a lot of rigs got stuck! Fairgrounds pulled out anyone who got stuck, so that was good! We definitely would stay here again. Weather can't be helped!

We pulled into this beautiful park with a 40 ft. motorhome, four slides and left after struggling to navigate a "pull thru" site that was supposed to be big rig friendly. The site was CURVED and after 45 minutes of trying to get our rig in, we gave up. The park was beautiful, however, a wonderful destination for smaller rigs. You can't beat the rate! Rating is for difficulty getting into sites which are heavily treed.

Extremely wooded which is nice but makes the park rather dark and dreary on cloudy days. Roads around the park were muddy and soft in parts and quite twisty. This park is really NOT big rig friendly but you CAN get in here. (We're 40 ft.) A large portion of the park ("A" section) was closed due to upgrading to 50 amp, which is good. There are good sites for big rigs, we just crammed ourselves into a small one to get cable TV. Adequate cell phone coverage (AT&T) and good Verizon air card coverage. Beautiful clubhouse, not much going on in the way of activities. Terrific, large pool, great for swimming laps if you wanted to. Florence is a great town to go eat in, cute shops and great activities. Hike Sweet Creek Falls, see Sea Lion Caves and Heceta Head Lighthouse. And there are the dunes if you like that. We would definitely stay in this park again. I wonder about mosquitoes being bad later in the season?

This is the most beautiful state park I have ever seen. You have the beach within a very short walk from any site in the RV park loop. You have a lighthouse, you have a historical Victorian style mansion to tour. The sites are VERY secluded from each other. We saw two little deer walking across one of the sites as we pulled in. There is very little in the town of Port Orford, but fantastic scenery and supposedly whale watching opportunities at the observation point by the Port Orford Welcome center. There are lighthouse tours if you are interested. Caveat--NO AT & T cell phone service and VERY poor Verizon air card coverage, but internet varies from site to site.

Really nice place to stay while exploring the area. The fairgrounds outside the RV park lot are lovely, but you can't ride around in them on a bike, much to my disappointment. You are in a gravel parking lot for the RV's, but there are some trees, we had one on our site. Residential area around the fairgrounds low income area but we felt safe. Laundry facility at the RV park. Santa Rosa is a cool town to explore, great food, great whale watching at Bodega Bay Head about 30 miles away. Flea market on the weekends right across from the park. Friendly park manager, very helpful. We would stay here again, definitely. Very easy to get in and out with a big rig.

This was a small dirt lot in the middle of a very pretty fairgrounds. It looked like you would use this yard for auto salvage. It was ugly, fencing around the lot was ugly, and we felt like we were staying in a prison yard. It was so ugly: torn up grass, chopped up asphalt, weeds, no definition to the site spaces, ugly fencing, we left the next day. Wish we could show you the photo. No effort has been made to make this RV spot desirable for anybody. The opening to the lot was narrow, we barely made it through with our 40 foot motorhome. The lot was difficult to find in the fairgrounds itself. We would NOT stay here again. Move onto the next fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, just up the road, which has a very similar name, much better place to stay!

VERY hilly. Narrow sites, just enough room for our 40 foot motorhome and a couple of chairs. Sites are on "terraces" of land, so little drop offs from one site to the next. Beautiful scenery, however. Huge activity hall, no pool. Some activities are offered. Staff was having difficulties keeping up with mowing and landscaping. Our site was so overgrown with grassy weeds we offered to weedwhack it ourselves. Terrific destination for Yosemite, which is about 20 miles away. Acorn woodpeckers all over the place and other beautiful birds. It is 28 miles from Fresno if you need a big town fix. Park is gated. Weather is more moderate due to location and protection from the mountains.

This is an orange grove partitioned off into an RV park. Parking lot sites, but a fruit bearing orange tree at every single site. If they are ripe, you can pick them! Nice sites, not a whole lot of room width wise on the site, but a perfectly good overnight destination. Very tiny pool. There's a major orange fruit stand right around the corner for fabulous oranges if you don't get any in the park. Verizon air card and AT &T cell service fine.

The most beautiful swimming pool I have ever seen overlooking the mountains. Beautiful facilities, pickleball court, fantastic book and DVD loan library, nice staff, friendly residents. Extremely hilly, and VERY steep approach into the park. If you like to ride a bike for exercise, forget it! SWIM in the beautiful pool! Sewing/craft room. Temecula nearby: a beautiful town and a beautiful wine tour in your "backyard". We were guided to our site, which helps on steep hilly grounds such as some of these Escapees parks. Sites are VERY spacious, plenty of room between you and your neighbor. We loved this park and would definitely come back.

Great overnight stop. Parking in a fairgrounds parking lot so no grass. Power was fine. Fairgrounds staff working the grounds were wonderful. Close to lots of things: Palm Springs, La Quinta, great eating places, shopping. Gate protected at night. Air card excellent. No cable TV but antenna coverage good. Room to ride around the fairgrounds on a bike. Interesting Moroccan/Arabic architecture to the fairgrounds itself. Easy in, easy out. The weather was windy, windy, windy, more than normal they said. We would stay here again.

Low water pressure. We didn't even have enough water to properly flush our toilet in the motorhome. It was NOT our filter, pressure was great at the next RV park. Website alludes to water front views, and fantastic ocean scenery, but it's not visible from the park due to heavy, heavy tree growth at the property line. Don't pay for the "premium site" it's not worth it. Beautiful Patrick's Point State Park a couple of miles down the road will give you the beach and all the scenery. Nice laundry facility. Steep hill going up to the sites but easy to get into site. Quite a few park models in the park but still room for big rigs. Sites are not wide but enough room to put out slides and chairs. Neighbors are close on each side. We probably would not stay here again because of water pressure. AT&T cell service was terrible here, not the fault of the park. Verizon air card was ok.

Nice park! Great breakfast served on Saturdays for 3.50. Friendly staff, totally gravel park, so dusty in windy weather. Very easy to maneuver big rigs around in the park and to get situated. Nice clubhouse, activities are planned for the residents if you choose to participate. We would definitely stay here again. Deming is a small town with a great restaurant out in the middle of nowhere, Adobe Deli and Grill. Packed on a Saturday night, reservations needed. Beautiful scenery there at the park. We would definitely stay here again.

Super friendly greeting upon arrival, multiple hugs all the way around when residents are called by the "welcome" bell to welcome new arrivals. Really nice office staff. Nice facilities, terrific ranch house for activities. Tons of activities planned for park residents. Gravel level sites, some owners have cement pads, sites are very spacious. No trees, you are in a desert location. Not much to do around outside the park. About 23 miles to Carlsbad Caverns which is a must see. One of our countries most beautiful cave systems and HUGE! No place to ride bikes except on county roads. You are in the Chihuahuan Desert at the base of the Guadalupe Mountains.

This is like camping in someone's back yard, Texas style. Grounds are HUGE, there is a pecan tree grove on the premises, and hundreds of deer in woods right next to the park. Friendly camp hosts, but location is isolated and not near to much. You are really out in the boonies in this park. No cable, Verizon air card did not work and we could not pull in any TV signals with antenna system. There was a single gunshot heard at 8:30 PM and we had no idea why. But, this is Texas country and who knows? Made us nervous, however. Plenty of room between sites, and beautiful country. Not sure we'd go back there.

Rate reflects a monthly stay. The park itself is beautiful. Two ponds, two fishing docks, views out on the bayou if you choose waterfront, nice laundry facilities/showers/restrooms. Exceptional staff as far as friendly and helpful as they could be. No activities in the way of special interests available, but new management hopes to change that. Most of the people staying there were BP workers or oil refinery employees. Nothing is there for children, no playground, and it's not safe to bike around outside the park. Once outside the park, it is heavily industrial and very depressing in the area--nothing but oil refineries along the coast near the park and hurricane damage still evident. Thirty minute drive to Galveston, which was delightful and a must see. Another nice area to walk around and eat at was Kemah Boardwalk, just down the road on 146. Good restaurant in the area, TBone Tom's for steak. We loved the park, but didn't like the area. One more thing--cool, wild Monk parrots live in the park!

For such a ritzy resort (3 pools, state of the art fitness room, 18 seat movie theater, live entertainment almost every week), to not have WiFi working for 10 days is a disappointment. Every thing else was fantastic. It's gated, guarded and the grounds are beautiful. No campfires or fire pits allowed. Two sets of laundry facilities (HE washers), and free hors d'oeuvres and drinks every Friday night. We used the pools which were kept way too hot, especially the lap pool. Temperature was over a hundred degrees, it was like swimming in hot bath water! Some people would like that, I'm sure. The main pool is called an "infinity" pool because one edge has no containment and the water drops off to recirculate. There are cabanas at every pool. There is a small beach onsite as well. Sites are extremely spacious but there's not much shade from the palms. They are also interested in selling sites but there was zero pressure to buy. Location is further from downtown Naples, you can't bike from here, but you are closer to the Everglades. We loved this place even if the WiFi didn't work! (They are getting new towers and new equipment within the next couple of weeks.) This used to be the Monaco Coach exclusive resort before Monaco went under. We will definitely return to this gorgeous resort. THIS is a resort!

Sites are close together but beautiful palms and foliage act as a buffer, clubhouse is small, pool is very small, the whole park is small BUT location, location, location! You can walk or bike to handy shopping, we biked almost every day to downtown Naples. The staff is exceptionally friendly and makes you feel like family. We LOVED our stay here and hope to return next year for longer time. They have two rates: the cheapest rate puts you on an outside stone wall right next to highway 41, noise might be a factor for some. The staff works hard to provide activities for their guests and they work very hard on keeping the park beautifully maintained. The park gets completely full in January and February so book early!

Very nice owner. Basically, this is someone's front yard just a few miles from I-65. Sites are just grass, and close together. There is noise from the road right out front as the road leads to I-65 and it's a fast two lane road. We recommend using pads if there's been rain. We sunk so deep the first time leveling we thought we were going to get stuck, pulled the jacks back up and redid with pads. There is a laundry room available. You have to drive about 10 miles to find grocery stores and restaurants. They accept Passport America during the week so you can't beat the rate. This is an acceptable overnight stop and yes, it does beat staying at a Wal-Mart. The owner was concerned enough about the electric to warn us how to reset the electric should we lose power. We used only 30 amp service and didn't have any problems this time of year.

Gosh, what a beautiful park! Extremely large, VERY spacious sites, hooks for lanterns to hang, large picnic tables. Beautiful views of the lake from all over the campground. There were a LOT of deer hunters the weekend we stayed. We couldn't use much of the great bike trail they have because it was hunting season, but we were still able to ride parts of it. Nice welcome center close by that houses an Illinois artists' gallery of great things for sale. The sewers were to be available in certain sections of the park but there were problems with government regulations so they were not operational as of yet. We used a senior pass to get the great rate we did. The park was scheduled to close Nov. 30.

Can't find anything to fault this park! Excellent facilities all around: beautiful large pool, hot tub, laundry facilities are excellent. The staff provides wonderful entertainment for adults and families with children. While we were here, there was a beautiful wine tasting event with fabulous homemade hors d'oeuvres for just 6.00 a person. Entertainment for kids and families on other occasions has been "Minute to Win it" contest, and cool crafts for the kids. Young management staff does a fabulous job in providing all kinds of activities for everyone of all ages. Sites have concrete pads and are well spaced out between you and your neighbor. Wonderful office staff! We've been here many times and will come again many times.

This is a fantastic park for viewing the freighters on the St. Mary's River. Rating would be higher if there were sewer hookups and better drainage of sites during heavy rain periods. There was an unusual amount of rain when we were here and there was mud and large puddles of standing water everywhere and on the sites. Quite a few sites were not useable because of that. There are no sewer hookups because of the proximity to the river (within yards). Very clean restrooms and showers. Front office staff is very helpful and very friendly, you are made to feel very welcome when you check in. Having a 40 foot rig was not a problem getting into the sites.

A fantastic view of Lake Champlain and the ferry boats passing by the campground is down at the end of one road in the campground, many of the shaded sites are occupied by seasonal campers. A great off road bike trail is within a short driving distance. The trail is level and on an old railbed. You take a two minute bike ferry to get from one part of the trail to the rest of it. The campground is very quiet with many shaded areas. The "beach" is a rocky ledge, no sand, water shoes recommended.

This is a great place to stay if you are traveling/camping with children. Playground is in the center of the site area. Restrooms and laundry facilities clean and modern. For the rate we paid, we had 30 amp service with no problems at all. You can walk to the outlet malls from the campground. Many great places to eat and shop. A great place for breakfast is Peaches Restaurant, and if you haven't eaten at a Flatbreads, that is quite the pizza place! Many many wonderful hiking and biking opportunities in this area around Mt. Washington. We recommend the Mt. Washington auto road trip!

We absolutely loved this campground. It was quiet, office staff was very knowledgeable and friendly and helpful. (We had to call a repairman while we were there). The bathrooms were cleaned daily, no problems with electric, water taste and quality were excellent, best drinking water we've had since we started full timing. No problems with bugs or mosquitoes, must have been the time of year. Great firewood! Shuttle buses ran on time and regularly from the campground to wherever you needed to go in Acadia. Nice sites, well spaced and angled apart. We'll be back definitely!

Park was beautiful, had pretty landscaping. We tried to use the 30 amp service to run one air conditioner and our surge protector shut us down immediately. We then tried to run our fantastic fan only and the surge protector shut us down again. We couldn't run any appliances at all. Low voltage was a major problem in the park. We talked to other campers who were also having problems. The management didn't seem to want to refund us our money as we were going to leave. We finally asked to be moved to a site away from others and ran our generator for electric power the rest of the night. THe low rate we paid was due to using Passport America.

This is a WONDERFUL family campground! We have stayed here twice for the weekend and love it. Sites are well spaced apart, pool is non-chlorinated (they use some kind of salt system instead) and the activities for families and adults are planned by a young married couple. Sample activity for this weekend was a "wet and wild" wagon ride for adults and kids. All the wagon riders were armed and ready with bazooka water pistols. Campers not on the wagon got out their water hoses and for two rounds around the campground, a major water fight ensued to the great delight of both campers and wagon riders! Almost the entire campground participated and was involved. Last time we stayed here, there was a tie-dye hat activity for the children and a DJ at the pool. Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. Excellent firewood was available.

This RV resort is one of the most beautiful places to stay in regards to the clubhouse and pool facilities. Clubhouse with a gorgeous nautical themed decor has a fully equipped kitchen, computer room, fireplace, games, a loaner library, two massage chairs (1.00 for 3 min.) a workout room, laundry facilities and more. The grounds are still being developed with plantings and trees, most sites are not shaded. Staff is VERY friendly and helpful. We've stayed here four times already and plan to stay more. Ownership of sites is promoted, but plenty of room for overnight guests and seasonal RVers. There is a beautiful bike trail called the Kal-Haven Bike Trail within a short distance of the park where you can bike four miles into S. Haven. Recommended restaurants: Thirsty Perch and Clementines.
