Big, flat, wide open gravel park. Easy to access and navigate thru. Small lattice fence between sites is a futile effort to provide privacy from your neighbors. Office clerk was very proficient and helpful. OK restaurant in walking distance. Good place to prepare for a last eastward trek out of the Rockies. This is part of the area where sections of I-80 can get closed with little or no warning, so be prepared.

A little far off the main drag for a one night stopover, but a nice clean KOA. Very nice place to bring the grandkids in the summertime. Not much going on this time of year and the rates should reflect that, but they don't. This is another case of not getting what you pay for.

Rustic setting a little off the beaten path. Really quiet. No trains, planes or HOV lanes. No complaints about the park, it's nice, but not worth $39, not even in the summer. It's only about 10 miles from Toledo in case you ever have a reason to go there

Park is little more than the remains of the workers camp left over from construction of the hotel and casino. There are no full hookups, no cable and no WiFi. There's a huge parking lot where trucks are allowed to overnight but NOT RV"s. Instead we are relegated to this so-called Resort. They make a big deal of the free breakfast in the hotel but that's not much value unless you're feeding a scout troop. And for this they charge an exce$$ive $39 (plus $10 more if you want a pull thru). About twice what it's worth. Casino is the draw, not the RV park. Next time through we'll go to the nearby WalMart.

Part of the Adventureland Resort/Hotel/ Amusement Park complex. (Fun park is seasonal). RV park has all hard sites with grass "yards". Most sites have a fire ring, none have cable. Wi-Fi is LinknGo $ub$cription. Off-season and late arrivals must check in at the adjacent hotel. Geared for us to "bring the family and stay a week" but come-n-go overnighters are also welcome. Prairie Meadows Casino & Race Track is directly across the road.

Nice rural setting that's just far enough from the the highway and trains to avoid the hubbub and noise. Easy in & out, perfect for one-night stopover. Escort to site by very pleasant manager. I like that their rates are posted and there's no nickel-dimeing for extras.

Very nice park with lots of trees. Not woodsy trees, but more like a garden. Everything their ad says is true. They deserve the "Truth in Advertising" award. Although it was only an overnight stay for us, this is the kind of place I'd feel comfortable for a much longer stay. Nice setting to enjoy your evening stroll. We enjoyed the delivered-to-your-site food from the Village Grill also.

Tight, flat, blacktop spaces close enough to I-90 for Tim Tebow to throw a pass across all six lanes. There's nothing pretty about it, but from here you can drive to the Space Needle and Pecks Point in about twenty minutes. Good base for touring Seattle area. Nice, but not worth the big buck$.

The RV sat enjoying the view all by itself for the first few days while we were "at sea" on the Limit Stalker. We rushed to get set up and cast off but when we got back we realized we were in a prime location with an unobstructed view across the Puget Sound to Whidbey Island. The front row sites get the best view but there's not a bad spot in the park. The sites are all grass a/o gravel and many have two sewer drain spots so it's easy to park so you get a nice view. The Harbor Master's office doubles as the RV park office and the folks there are as nice as you'll find anywhere. There are restaurants on site and it's only a brisk walk to the charming "downtown" of Townsend with all of it's quaint shops and eateries. "She" will like the consignment shop on Water St while "he" can go one block over and peruse the woodworkers gallery and the auto garage collectors heaven. As was said before "It's the location that counts."

What I'd call a "comfortable" RV Park. Nice place with wide level sites. What makes this a resort is that there are many folks who come and stay here for the summer, year after year. They like it and so did I. It's right on the bay with it's own boat launch. Good location for a lot of touristy things. Nice casino four miles away. Worse part is the No-Left-Turn at the exit which makes you drive the length of twisty curvy bumpy Fidalgo Bay Rd.

Level cement pads with full hookups. Manicured grass between sites. Sporadic office hours, we just picked our spots and waited for the clerk to show up. Prices vary by day of week and season (some very high, none cheap). Cable, hot$pot wifi and modest size laundry. Also have free overnight RV and truck parking in a separate area. Everything there is new, the hotel the casino and especially the RV park. Nice casino, good buffet.

Neat, clean, large park with adequate sized cement pad, cookie-cutter sites. Snail-slow heavy traffic ruins the easy approach from I-5. Not very far from the airport so there is a little aircraft noise at times. Although it's in the city there isn't much near the park. You'll have to go to a different neighborhood to do any shopping. I did a peek-in at the laundry and bath facilities and they were spotless. No pool, playground or activities for kids. There are two good restaurants about a mile east on Marine Way. We really liked the smaller, lower priced one called The Sextant. Don't miss touring all the waterfalls along the Columbia River Gorge Highway.

The RV Park is behind the hotel & casino. Easy to get in, out and through. Shuttle (24/7) to the casino. Also have free overnight RV and truck parking a lot in front of the hotel. Everything is on top of a hill where the wind can howl. Do not put your awning out. We kept the sliders in to minimize the rocking. It didn't help much but at least the slide toppers stayed in one piece. Not much in the way of extras. Pay wifi. No cable (they'd rather you spend your time in the ca$ino) but a good location for satelite.

No pool, splash park, or "bingo" hall, so you can't call it a Resort. But don't resort to calling it just a park. This place is immaculate. Just like brand spanking new. Paved roads w/ charming carriage lights, level concrete pads and patios w/ picnic tables. Easy to get to and through. Only negative would be the high water pressure. Be sure to use a regulator. Don't confuse it with a nearby park with a similar name. I-84 exit #95.

"If you build it, they will come" In the middle of Nebraska corn fields this is an average KOA. Even though the in and out overnighter is not KOA's base customer this is a convenient overnight stopover. The "pizza shop" is a great plus since there's nothing else anywhere near here.

It's only a place to park for the night. Close your eyes to the park and look at the scenery beyond. Go elsewhere if you have the choice. The only good news is there was good WiFi and good antenna TV.

Just like it's all brand new. Not one negative comment to be made. All facilities and utilities in full working order. They even have two-walled windbreaks to protect the tenters from the "prevailing winds". Great base for visiting this interesting and historic city.

Very nice, large, neat, clean, well maintained park that caters mostly to seasonals but short timers are welcome, also. Sites on the hill offer great views. We stayed two nights even though we were really just passing through. There's no office on site. Reservations need be made in advance. Great place to have a gathering as they also have a reservable pavilion for events.

Falls into the "only game in town" category. Below average KOA. I guess the location is the draw because there's nothing special enough to justify the high rate on a W/E only site. Gravel roads and sites, tight spaces, no patios, so-so Wi-Fi. I thought that being near the "RV Capital of the U.S", it would be some kind of showcase for KOA. It's anything but.

Colonial Woods is great in most respects. The setting is heavily wooded, quiet, and secluded. The staff is helpful, friendly and eager to please. The store is well stocked with reasonable prices. I have many kudos and compliments, but I also have gripes. 1. For a CG this large to have so few restrooms is surprising. And, when you add the fact that there are no sewer hookups it's close to unreasonable. (they do have "honey wagon" service). There are only three bathhouses with a total of only four showers for men and I assume the same number for women. 2. The pool is located across the lake in the half of the grounds that is reserved for seasonals and perms. 3. The lack of useable Wi-Fi. Sporadic Tengo Internet is a disappointing waste of time and money. The wife says we'll go back. I'm not so sure.

Our second time here. Well above any other parks within 15 miles except maybe the county park at North Beach in Burlington. The price difference makes that an appealing alternative. No complaints about Lone Pine though. It's a step above the average rustic New England campground. Clean, not crowded and easy to navigate to and through. We'll probably return.

As nice as you'll find anywhere. Large clean, level, landscaped sites. All facilities and services are top notch. Quiet at night. The sound of the bullfrogs is louder than the occasional train in the distance. There's shuttle service to the Vegas quality Casino and there's a Racino ~6 miles away. The golf course is PGA quality. Not much else in the area. Expen$ive but, in this case, you get what you pay for. Our 3rd time here and not our last.

All the previous ratings are high for a reason, this is a great park. The only minor negative is the lack of cable and even that is not bad because the off-air reception is pretty good. You get a mix of English and Frenh speaking stations. (DirecTV dish settings are Az 233, El 31) Also can't say much about the surrounding scenery as the park is in the middle of flat farmland. Everything else about this place is top notch. My DW said they even have a workout room but I didn't go there because I'm enrolled in the Fitness Protection Program.

A nice park with a mixture of short and long timers. It's not a resort as the name might imply, it's a place to stay. I had to take a different site than we were assigned because trees impeded navigation. Not a problem this time of year as park was not crowded. I would return to enjoy the local area. Be advised, the directions to the park lead you through such a nice upscale residential area that you will think you are lost. You're not.

Good enough as a one night, in and out. Very easy access. Right next to the ramp of I-95 exit #380. Two miles from GA line. Spaces are little narrow, but plenty long enough to avoid unhooking. The sewer location is so far to the rear of the sites it might be easier to us the dump station on your way out.

Candy Hill is on the longer "western route" we use to avoid the high-toll, snail-slow traffic of the I-95 NJ-DE-MD-DC corridor. But we got delayed by snow in the Harrisburg area anyway so we called ahead to say we'd be late. The Night Host/Security, who was waiting at the gate when we arrived completed our registration and escorted us to our site, Due to the time and temperature the water supply was shut off so he first offered to lead us to a usable waterline. Very thoughtful and courteous but not surprising. Each time we have come to Candy Hill we have experienced the same friendly and professional service. A nice CG for a one-night sleep over. A great CG in better weather. Only negative is one hour limit on FREE wifi.

We really like this KOA park. Very friendly and helpful staff. All facilities are well kept and spotless. Located in a shaded and quiet valley. Only negative comment is it's hard to get level in some of the sites (58&59). We stay here (2nd time) to go to Dorney Park with the grandkids. Also, about 7 miles away is Bear Rock Junction with great mini golf, train ride, ice cream etc. A word of caution: When going to the park, keep your speed down when you're on PA-100 approaching Narris Rd. There's a big KOA sign but it's at the bottom of a long hill and it's easy to overshoot the turn.

A large park, spread out over a big area. The newer area on the hill over the creek is uncrowded and scenic, but it's a hike to everything from there. It's also without shade trees. The on-site restaurant looked pretty nice, but we did not eat there. Their little amusement park is a negative because of its prices. The 18 hole Disc Golf course is long and challenging. Don't bother trying it with your "normal" Frisbee. Hershey Park is not far away.

Be very specific about your needs and preferences when doing your booking. Hookups (W,E,S) vary from site to site. Some of what seem like premium sites only have W&E. We like everything else about this park.

Other than the tricky turn onto the approach road it's a convenient stopover, Use caution or you'll go right back on I-77. I had trouble getting cable reception. The office suggested the problem was in my equipment. It wasn't. WiFi was good. Grounds and facilities were clean and orderly. Some highway noise. No trees or obstructions make it easy to navigate through the park.

Many trees can make navigation a little tough but that's the only negative I can report. The coffee and wine tasting bar add a nice touch, A rain shower turned the sandy ground into a mud pit the night we were there. Some gravel would be welcomed. Bath and laundry room are spotless. Stopping here was a change in our normal route. It will probably be the new itinerary.

After three years of stopping here I'm left with my original question: Is Bulow Plantation what used to be a very nice place that is now getting run-down? OR, was it a dump that is now getting restored? I can't make up my mind. There are just two things that bring me back here . Number one is the charm of the moss-draped live oak trees that abound and give the property the "kick back and enjoy your mint julep" feeling. The problem is that this is a one night stopover for us, and we don't usually get here until near sunset. Then we're off again in the morning. It would be much better if we had several days to enjoy the old-south charm. And that brings me to the bad part about the other thing that brings us here. If I was here for three, or more, days I'd be eating three, or more, delicious dinners at Guiseppe's Restaurant (Moody Blvd near the beach). I might even squeeze in some lunch buffets and gain even more girth than I now have. My wardrobe budget can not handle that. So the two things I like best both have a negative side. What to do? What to do?

Rustic! If this were a state park I'd give it a high rating but as a commercial campground I can only say "Rustic". I guess in the middle of a hot summer the canopy of trees and the proximity of a lake would be a great draw, but during the off-season the best I can say is it's a convenient stopover, close to I-95. Very clean restrooms and showers, good wi-fi, no cable (or satellite), water and electric only (no sewer) in the overnight area.

If you are coming from anywhere north of here you can count on getting here later than you planned. Because of the terrible traffic on I-495 and I-95, it took us 2.5 hours longer than expected to get here so it was pitch dark when we did. The late check-in pack was ready and waiting, the map clearly marked and the rows and site numbers easily identified. In the morning we saw how clean and orderly everything was. Along with being an easily accessible overnight stop this campground would be a nice place to stay for a few days to take advantage of all the nearby attractions.

We used this park as an overnight stop and it is more than adequate for that but it is expen$ive. The base rate is higher than the average KOA and they tack on charges for kids, pets and second computers. The park itself is, like most KOA's, neat clean and level. Nice "diner" for light meals. I have no complaints about the park itself, just that it’s expensive. We'll go elsewhere in the future.

The best in the area. The sites are all separated by vegetation making the park attractive and cozy. Great views and easy access to all Taos has to offer. The visitor center is just a block away. No cable or antenna TV. Bathroom is dated but clean. Four of six machines in the laundry were out of order. Internet service was sporadic. Sites look fairly level but we (2 MH's) and all around us used extra blocks for leveling.

I agree with the previous comments but I like this place anyway and will come back if I plan on staying more than one night. It’s a very hilly and tough climb to get into and through the park. Use the directions from I-79 exit 33. The route from I-70 is like being in a corn-maze. Don’t even attempt it in the dark. Truth is, it's easier to find Walmart or The Meadows Casino if that can meet your needs.

What a great way to run a CG. I wish the rest of the in-n-out one-night parks would take lessons from these folks. Neat, clean, convenient location, plenty of room for easy hookup, quick and efficient registration, well identified sites, all good things. And best of all, a super efficient and friendly host. There is a possibility that you might be rocked to sleep or even be awakened by sudden "breezes". After all, this is the high plains of Kansas. The truck stop across the highway can generate a little noise but I don't think most RV'ers are light sleepers so it should not be a problem. High Plains CG WILL be on my itinerary the next time through the area.

Very nice park with well kept grounds and a well-stocked store. Only negative is the poor (Verizon) cell phone signal. Follow their directions (exit 290) as your GPS may take you about two miles west of the true location.

Very nice, neat, clean park set back off the highway. Entrance is easy to miss as the sign is not prominent and not lighted. It's behind the McDonald's that’s next to Wal-Mart. Wireless and cable outages prompted going to McDonald's for Internet and the use of a satellite dish. All sites are paved and level. Laundry facility was spotless and much appreciated as we had been dry camping at the nearby Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta for several days. Higher rate paid includes a premium because of the Fiesta.

Been stopping here for several years. This is the first time it was more than half full. I'm glad to see that people are seeing the value of Oasis RV resort. We stayed for two nights to fully prepare for several days of dry camping at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta. Did the laundry, filled the tanks etc. Don't you just know that, in spite of the Texas drought, we get here and it rains all day. Timing is everything.

A virtual sea of RV's as far as you can see. Most sites are "dry". "Premium" sites with W&E are costly and need to be reserved very early. Staying here is the best way to see the Fiesta because you can beat the horrendous traffic by taking the shuttle to the launch field.

The Casey KOA was much nicer than it seemed from the I-70 exit. In the middle of the "flatland prairie" is this small oasis-like hammock of trees blanketing this RV Park. We didn’t expect much as we got off the exit but were pleasantly surprised by it's calm coziness. We were reminded of "If you build it they will come”. I’m glad they did and we’ll come back. It’s a very nice sleepover spot on your way to or from anywhere or you could stay a few days and relieve all your tensions.

I have only two negative comments. 1.The pull through sites, where we were, are pretty heavily sloped and made quite a chore of leveling a 4-footed motorhome. 2. Almost no Verizon cell signal. (Yes, I know it's not their fault.) Otherwise, I have only good things to say. In the past, I've been very critical of KOA's poor reservation and registration services, because of problems and disappointments at several other parks, but the staff in this office set a new standard. This should be the training model for all other KOA's. And the staff is totally proficient in all the other aspects of catering to their campers. The pool, bathrooms, laundry, office, roads and grounds are spotless. Ah, forget the negative stuff. Come here. You'll like it.

Not cheap but when you consider the price of the waterpark ($14/day) is included, it's reasonable. Our $93/day covered 2 adults & 1 child (1 younger child was free) with a premium site. I'm very glad we paid extra for the waterfront site because being stuck in the overcrowded "dust bowl" middle of this very large park would be far from enjoyable. All services and facilities are well managed and clean. Some of our friends have been coming here for years. I'm glad we joined them this time and we will again.

Our second time here. This time we brought the G'kids and they really enjoyed the many available activities. There's diamond prospecting, river tubing, disk golf, Erie Canal cruising and the Utica Zoo is a few miles away. We did it all and I'm exhausted. In 2009 I chided them for not doing any recycling. Now they've gotten with the program. They even have Kabins that are completely off the grid. All the facilities are neat and clean. The sites on the river bank are where you'll find me when I go back.

Slightly disappointed in our grandkids' favorite KOA. Mini-golf course really needs some refurb. Rental trike literally fell apart and had to be carried back for replacement. Wi-Fi was weak and intermittent even right in front of the office. Had to buy 75' of cable to reach adjacent site to get TV reception. Reported both to staff but got no response. We all liked the free pancakes in the morning. We'll still go back because it's close to home but I hope they don't continue what appears to be a downhill slide.

Getting here is not "half the fun". Do NOT follow your GPS if approaching from the south. Best bet is the I-70 Exit 24, MD-63 south route. I really like this place. It rained most of the time we were there so we stayed indoors a lot and took advantage of the tranquility. I'd like to return and stay longer. The "Diner" offers good meals at reasonable prices. The grounds are well kept and the staff were helpful and friendly.

A large park that gets pretty crowded when it fills up as it did while we were there. It fills up because they have a great park with a lot to offer. A little bad luck weather-wise kept the Grand kids from using the "wet" facilities but they enjoyed their "kickoff the season" trip. Some of the roads and sites get pretty muddy when it rains and the extra activity-pass is fairly expensive but other than that I have no complaints and will probably return.

This park is an average KOA with all the expected amenities. I found the layout of the park (Colonial Section) a little strange in that it's laid out sort of like a figure eight with the pool and playground at the center. So fewer sites are near the activity center. And that is what brings me to giving it a low rating. As it seems to happen more and more frequently, especially at KOA's, the reservation desk will promise you anything, until they get your credit card number, with no intention of fulfilling your needs or requests. We were promised a certain site ("one of three back-ins facing the pool") but were made to take a site that was two spaces from the entrance driveway. I had taken the clue from a previous rating and asked for a site where the kids would be close to the pool and playground. My mistake was telling the kids and they ended up disappointed with me. Park reservations staffs need to remember that campers are customers and will ultimately only buy from suppliers that meet their needs. A follow-up e-mail note of apology, including a discount coupon for "your next visit", did not impress the Grandkids or me. There probably won't be a "next visit".

Darling Wife and I have different opinions of Cherry Hill. I think it's great. It's got every amenity you could want. Located at the juncture of I-95 and the north side of the Capital Beltway (I-495) it is convenient if you're visiting DC for a few days or even as an overnight. If you can, try to time your arrival and departure time to avoid the miserably heavy traffic going into DC in the morning or going out in the evening. DW thinks the spaces would be extremely tight if the park was more full (It was near empty on this winter night) and she fears the lack of shade trees would allow the summer sun to roast you. (Some sunshine would have been welcomed on this frigid night.) One thing we agree on: it's expen$ive. In summertime all the amenities might make it worthwhile, but as an overnight sleep-n-go, it’s way overpriced. Even with the discounts.

The last couple times we came through the area, we stayed in Opelika AL, about 35 miles away. This time we changed our route to head a little more eastward toward clearer weather and to get us "off the Interstate" for a while. We were very happy with our overnight stay here. The showers and the laundry are modest but adequate and clean. The Meeting Room was being used by a friendly group of card players and I felt like we could feel comfortable staying here for a while. Lack of cable TV is a negative, but not enough to keep us away.

Our last time here in Biloxi, I thought this park "the best deal on the beach." I still think so. It's mid-way between the casino groups, neat, clean, friendly, level, easy to find and rea$onably priced. This time we got what I guess is the most awkward space (128) in the park. Has a large tree in just the right/wrong place, that made it difficult to get near the utilities: but that won't stop me from going back.

Neat, clean, easy to navigate to and through. Spaces are a little narrow but still easy to get in and out of. Walking distance to Publix market. Good for our overnight stay or longer.

Our last time here I gave this place a so-so rating, saying it was basically just overpriced. This time I was more smitten with the peaceful beauty of the moss draped trees and was prepared to raise my rating. Then, we had trouble finding the correct, poorly identified site with well-hidden, almost inaccessible utility connections and the warm feelings subsided. Petty complaints aside, I would like to spend some time here to soak up the relaxed, old-south feeling of the setting AND get another great meal at a place called Guiseppe's on the main road near the beach.

This Park used to be a KOA and not much has changed except the sign and maybe the price. Actually, in the past I had trouble with both the WiFi and the cable TV. Not so this time. It’s still a convenient overnight stop that's half way between New York and South Florida. Easy to find and navigate through, clean facilities, friendly and courteous staff, level sites, no complaints from me. Each time we've stopped here I've seen guys fishing in the catch-and-release lake. Haven't seen any fish yet but, maybe next time.

Courteous host stayed late to get us in after dark. Very heavy and slow traffic coming south out of DC. If you are southbound on I-95 you will most certainly get here later than you planned. After sunrise we saw our surroundings and were impressed by the condition of the grounds even though it was mid-winter. I like this style of park. Not too big or small. Much nicer than those cookie-cutter paved parking lots but overpriced for an overnight stopover.

We checked in on Saturday when the CG was pretty full so getting a less desirable spot was not unreasonable. But after the weekend, when there were many open spots, we asked to move and were denied. We weren't overly thrilled with the CG (reasons below) in general so we took a ride to see what else was available. One nearby CG had a very nice beach on a large lake but overall none were better than where we were so we stayed put for the rest of the week. Gripes: Expensive extras = $10/day each extra adult, $10/day for the kids to sleep in a tent. $3 for a (nice) 9 hole mini golf course. Only one, late afternoon, trash pickup so trash from early checkouts litters the grounds all day. No set schedule for when "lake" is open for swimming. No chairs or lounges at the pool, its BYO. Kudos: Adult TV lounge with computer, Snack bar, beach passes, Pier discounts, friendly staff, spotless pay showers.

Nothing to complain about, but it’s nothing special either. Close to center of town and a perfect location for touring the Wine Trail or hiking The Glen (Bucket list). High water pressure, use a regulator. Renovated bathrooms, behind the office are handicap accessible and spotless. Fairly priced. Cordial staff assists you to park in accordance with strict municipal rules. Kids would probably be happier 6 miles up the hill at KOA. We were happy here.

Really nice New England wooded CG. Everything is neat, clean and tidy. Bathrooms, with small showers, are spotless. I was impressed by the stacked stone fire pits. Someone with old-world skills spent a lot of time building them. Centrally located for visiting Plymouth, P'town and Maratha's Vineyard. My only negative comment is the one-location-only trash station which is almost out to the highway. Basic rate are reasonable, extra adult guests are at great expense.

A nice clean, if somewhat sterile, park with all level concrete pads and patios that is miles away from everything except the their casino. The clubhouse, pool, grounds, laundry and all facilities and services are top-notch. In warmer weather the lake, the pool and other outdoor activities would be part of the attraction but it's the golf course and the really great casino that are the draw. Busloads from Texas keep the casino jumping.

I checked over and over to be sure I stayed at the same place the last several raters were referring to. I checked my GPS, the website, Google Maps, my receipt and the final authority - my wife to be sure where I stayed. The Baton Rouge KOA in Denton Springs. Others are entitled to their opinion but I can't imagine what they saw that caused their low ratings. To me, this is a typical KOA, neat and clean with all the usual amenities. Cement pads with paver brick patios, smooth roads, moderate sized sites, good cable, Wi-Fi, clean rest rooms, laundry and pool. Even a mini-golf course with three holes shaped as K-O-A. One thing I didn't understand is the sign on the pool gate that disallows children in the pool area.

Not a destination itself but a great location for touring the Vicksburg area with easy access from I-20. The park is large, clean, well laid out with easy access to pull-thrus with w/e/s/cable & Wi-Fi. Laundry and shower rooms in office building (only) are spotless. Shuttle and breakfast coupons are a nice perk. Great tours through local antebellum homes and the Vicksburg National Military Park & Cemetery is impressive, scenic and sobering.

Last year I was given a song and dance about the Wi-Fi and cable being temporarily cut off when they put in a new road to the race track and I gave this park a "mixed emotion" review. This year, no song and dance but no cable or Wi-Fi either. Paying a heavy fee for easy access to a level parking lot is no great deal in my book. If it wasn't for the race track and nearby shopping there would be no reason to come back here and we won't.

A year ago I wrote about this park being in the midst of re-landscaping, as it looked by all the equipment laying around that work was in progress. It wasn't. Nothing has changed. Maybe it looks good in the summer when everything is green but this time of year it looks run down. The park works well as a stop-n-sleep.

So, here we are back in Biloxi. This time we're at the "middle-class" park. I call it that because the park a little farther up the road, although very nice, had a bit of a snooty feel. This park has a little more of a home feel. (I was going to say "homey" but that has a different connotation nowadays.) Nothing to complain about. Tight spaces unless you are out near the beach road. Free coffee in the morning. Good cable and Wi-Fi. Nicely located mid-way between the casinos and near Beauvior (Jefferson Davis home). This will be my choice when I return to Biloxi.

What a great park in a great location. We were disappointed not being able to find a park in Natchez but finding this gem right across the Mississippi river was like hitting the jackpot. The interior gravel roads are rough and there's no cable but that's little competition for all the positives. Just seeing the tugs and barges glide by is worth the price. The store, laundry, and bath rooms were spotless. The grounds were more natural than manicured but well kept. A five minute drive puts you at the Natchez Visitor Center and starting point for touring many Historic Houses.

On our return trip to Biloxi, to save a few dollars, we stayed here instead of one of the parks near the beach . Big mistake! The back half of both of our sites were under water. We could not even get to the sewer connection. At check-in we were told that, because we got the P.A. discount, there could be no refunds so we thought "it's just two nights and the water will probably subside". It didn't. Very strange Wi-Fi system. This is the only place I've ever seen that required me to give them my computer's IP address so they could "hook me up" with Wi-Fi. This, of course, leaves my computer vulnerable to anyone who gets that code. I thought this isn't the smartest thing to do but I needed access, so I gave it to them. After thinking it over I decided not to turn my computer on at all. Now, here's the kicker! On the second evening I got cursed-out by one of the "seasonals" for having my car "going the wrong way" at the laundry building. I know it's not the manager’s fault if one of the residents gets asinine but the self appointed meter-maid's home site was one of many "seasonals" that were littered with trash and that IS a sign of poor management. Next time in Biloxi we'll go back to the beach.

We enjoyed our 6 night stay here. The park is located in a mostly abandoned industrial area along a canal near the edge of Lake Pontchartrain. Some would see that as a negative but we found it a nice change of pace from the high energy and "who dat" volume of downtown and the French Quarter. Don’t waste your time looking for a better park in the area. I don’t know what could make it any better. Especially if you compare prices.

We used this park as a sleep-over on a night that the temperature was at the freezing mark so we stayed bundled up inside and did not see much of the park. I did like the easy access and the friendly escort who guided us in. The location is great if you are going to visit the area for a few days as it is not smack up against the Interstate.

Very close and convenient to I-95 (exit 53) but that's the good and the bad news. Easy navigation to and through the whole park with large sites. Sites closest to highway are W-E only, no sewer, cable or Wi-Fi. O.K. for a sleep-over. I wouldn't stay longer unless I got a site further back.

It was our second time here. It's just the right distance from our NY home for a 1st or last night stay on our way down or up I-95 although it's not a really quick off-n-on from I-95. There are ultra clean facilities. I'd like to return here and stay longer during warmer weather months. It is a good base for touring an area rich with Civil War history and the Nations Capitol. I'd expect the lower section to be sloppy in a wet season.

My only negative comment is the width of the sites. The section we were in had the neighbor’s patio pad almost under our slider window. The highlights are the pool, the store and of course, the staff. We'll come back the next time we want to visit our money in Atlantic City.

With the grandkids headed back to school we thought we would find a quieter, more relaxed park than the one's we had been favoring. Since The Depot has no pool, jumping pillow, hayrides, costumed mascots or the like we thought it would be a great place to "wind down" at the end of the summer. And it was. The grounds are clean, the seasonals are friendly, the beaches and lighthouse are a bike ride away and there are many restaurants in the area. The farm stand at the entrance had great Key-lime pie. Park is actually closer to "Cape May" than the CG's listed as in Cape May. We liked it here and will go back if in the area.

Three years ago I said I would not return here because of a reservation foul-up. Well here I am again (Oh, come on Papa. Give 'em another chance) and glad of it. This time they gave us a site "near the action" and it was great. Lots of activities for the G'kids, Woodland Grill is open all day with rea$onable meals and buffets, live entertainment in the evenings, good store w/scooped ice cream, etc. (Go to "kids" section of their website, print and color a picture for a free slushie). That's all good but I stand by my original assesment: If you don't get lucky with a good site near the center of this big park, you might as well be boondocking in the Adirondacks.

The "Splashground" is the biggest draw of this CG. The G'kids rated it "awesome". However, if the weather is bad or if you are not into pool activities there's not much else to bring you here. There are several major attractions are not far away. The Wi-Fi only works in one spot on the deck. My guess is they spent all their money on the splashpark and pool. They should have saved some to: a. put in a real laundry facility (only 2 washers and 3 dryers); b. modernize the showers (what they have were clean); c. open a snack bar; and d. put up some street signs (they escort you in the first time, then you're on your own finding your way). With the G'Kids I'd go back. Without them: probably not.

This is our favorite CG within one hundred miles of home. 5th or 6th time here. G'kids really like it. Plenty of activities included and special activities are rea$onable. The staff is friendly and accommodating. I have had reservation problems twice, when reserving through their website. Next time I'll bring up the website and phone in my booking direct. Something you should know if you don't know the area: They bill themselves as Newburgh/New York City North. It's not really in Newburgh and it's not near NYC: GoogleMap it and see. You won't want to be driving to-n-fro several days in a row to go sightseeing. I live 30 miles from NYC and go to Newburgh KOA for weekend get-aways.

The neatest, cleanest, best kept CG we've seen. Other CGs that are all paved sites in neat little rows can easily be swept or hosed down. But Ledgeview is tree covered with all packed-earth sites and you would be hard pressed to find a "switch" to discipline an ill-behaved child or a loose rock to throw at an approaching bear. (We didn't encounter either.) The perms and seasonals are all prettied-up with flowers, flags, and little picket fences. We didn't use any of the facilities (showers, laundry etc) but if they were anything but spotless I'd be shocked. My only negative comment would be about the weak WiFi which would only work in the library or at the front door. Then again, weak and FREE is much better than some other options. We will go back.

We enjoyed our stay here even though we were relegated to a water/electric only site away from the river. Large variety of sites available. They have sites with many combinations of river view, electric, sewer, cable TV and I guess none of the above. And, of course there are those charming cabins. Everything I saw was neat, clean and well cared-for. Negative points for the lack of any recycling efforts, everything goes in the trash. Digging in the Diamond Mine is a fun activity. We really enjoyed the Erie Canal Cruise that leaves from the dock near the exit from I-90.

Mixed review: MINUS -; Majority of sites are seasonal a/o permanent camp models so "travelers" are relegated to the less desirable sites away from the lake (they call it a pond). PLUS +; All areas are well kept, neat and clean. MINUS -; The beach is modest in size and the playgrounds are slightly more than backyard quality. PLUS +; The lake is clear and there are (small) fish to be caught. We came here because we did not want to dry camp at the NASCAR track at Loudon, about 25 miles away, and were thrilled when we got the only available site on the lake. What a beautiful view. We checked out two CG's closer to the track but wouldn't dare spend the night in either. This does not quite rank as a resort but it's well above the average rustic New England campground.

Very rustic, bordering on trashy, but good for a one-nighter or a base for visiting the Opelika-Auburn area. Looks like they are in the midst of re-landscaping. Great cable TV and instant wireless. Possibly the friendliest hosts I've ever come across. If I was in the area, I'd go back just to shoot the breeze with him. The piles of rock and gravel, the tractors and other equipment still liter the park and it still looks a little on the trashy side. Even with all that, I’d still come here again for the friendly folks and good services.

Typical KOA. Clean nice setting, small catch-release lake with ducks. Easy access. We liked it a lot and will return. It's a little closer to I-95 than it looks on the website map so you do get some traffic noise.

Not up to usual KOA standards. Maybe I was expecting too much. I only asked for a place to park for the night and the ability to drain and flush my tanks on the last day of our trip. They could have told me on the phone that I would need 50 feet of hose to reach running water from the almost inaccessible dump site, But they didn't. What they did was make sure they got my credit card number because "they would be leaving for the day before four o'clock". I can understand that they want all the revenue possible but if they can't provide basic services they should close for the winter.

A luxury park we would go back to even if it is slightly snobbish with restrictions on RV type and age. Spotlessly clean facilities, all level concrete pads.

Don’t miss the beautiful chainsaw tree carvings along the Beach Boulevard.

Easy in-out if you are near the front. CG is large with roads winding back into the woods. It’s probably very tranquil and quiet back there but up front you have clattering diesel pickups shuttling in and out at all hours. Not horrible but somewhat annoying. The facilities I saw were clean but could use some updating. Good cable, NO Internet. The office staff should at least pretend they are happy you stopped in.

I have mixed emotions about this. There is no Internet, cable, shade or charm. It is easy in and out for a one-niter. The park is adjacent to the parking lot of all three tracks (NASCAR, Dirt and the new zMax Drag Race track) so it's super for race fans attending an event. The proximity to Charlotte's activities and Concord Mills Mall is a plus but there's not much else to attract campers. It’s definitely not a destination park.

Large park that either used to be very nice, and is now getting run down, or was a dump, and is now getting restored. Either way, the park is now somewhere between the Ritz and the pits and it's a stretch to call it a resort. The location is convenient and the setting could be very nice with some grooming. We were happy to get a spot as other places were full but under normal circumstances the place is very much overpriced for the conditions.

Beautiful setting with wide open spaces. If a group get together is what you want, this is the place. If you’d rather relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings by yourself this is still the place. Having only water and electric hookups is a small inconvenience for the benefits of this beautiful setting. Tack on the expensive Wi-Fi and a lack of cable TV and a long stay might be out of the question. But, do not leave without taking either a paid or self-guided tour of the area. It isn't called “The Horse Capital of the World" for nothing.

NOTE: This comment was originally posted to the wrong CG. I'm posting it again to give credit to the correct Real Gentleman. We stopped here only hours after a terrible storm hit the Louisville area downing many trees, knocking out electricity and almost paralyzing the city. We had called ahead not knowing what was in store and arrived after dark. The Manager walked us to the only site left that was not obstructed by fallen trees. None of this has anything to do with rating the park but I'm telling it as a way of saying Thanks to a Real Gentleman who treated us royally during a crisis.

Only the second place that we ever pulled out of after seeing the place. A note on the door of the closed-up office said to pick a site and put some money in an envelope. We "shooed" our way through a herd of about 30 goats and made a circle around the so called resort. What we saw prompted us to retreat back over the 3+ mile wagon trail and go to the Wal-Mart in Rolla. A very good decision as the area suffered a torrential downpour (the remnants of Hurricane Ike) that night and I would guess the four RV's that were in the lowland park were either washed away or, at best, just flooded. I felt sorry for them and the goats.

There are two campgrounds in town, both a short walk to "downtown" and Wall Drug. This one has good cable and Wi-Fi. Otherwise it's a coin flip. Strange setup as to lot size. The lots are narrow with two different numbers depending on which way you face. If they were to fill the spaces you would not be able to open your doors but they only rent every other one. Many tent sites, I suppose catering to the bikers on their way to and from Sturgis. Wall Drug also has a huge parking lot that accepts overnight dry camping.

The campground is a huge, tight to navigate and has all small back-in spaces. Maybe some areas are big-rig friendly but I did not see them. It's the only full hook-up CG in Yellowstone.

Even though they are pull-thru you can't leave your Toad hooked up as it will block the street. A neat thing is that the Durango-Silverton RR runs right through the park.

Our second time here because it’s convenient to "The Casino's" (6 & 12 miles). Very large CG but about 85% filled with fulltime camp cabins and all-season weekenders. The size of the park dictates that somebody will be far from the recreation facilities. Unfortunately, it’s us short-timers. Most of the “perms” have golf carts. Many places that have a lot of full timers tend to get run down and messy; this is NOT the case here. All facilities and grounds are well maintained. Many of the "festival weekends" increase the rates excessively. Off-season and weekdays are reasonable.

Not quite a "Resort" as the name implies, but a nice clean rustic park. Even though it's close to I-40 the noise is minimal. Nice views all around, but especially for sunset. The seasonals, who are much neater than in many parks, are separated to one side and to the rear, so a day-stayer does not get the feeling they are imposing on someone else's neighborhood. At about 25 miles from Nashville, its close enough to do day trips to enjoy Music City. No cable, clear shot for satellite. They have what they call a Target Golf course which in a former life was probably a cute little par 3 course. Now the "greens" are un-puttable so it's a "nice walk interrupted by some iron shots." We stayed 5 days while visiting friends in nearby Mt. Juliet. We will return.

A large park with all amenities, conveniently located for touring the history rich Chattanooga area. The campground is on the site of the Civil War Battle of Chattanooga. Even though they have a large tent area, it seems you are better off "self-contained" due to limited number of bath houses. Gravel roads had puddles and the grassy areas were muddy or flooded both times we were here. Helpful, friendly and courteous staff. When we had some electrical problems they helped us find the "RVTech" who made quick and rea$onable on-site repairs.

Down a paved, but bumpy, country road you'll find this quiet little park. You can see that there was no master plan when this park was built. No neat little cookie-cutter rows of sites. As we were led to our site by the ever-so-friendly owner/manager, I was reminded of a child’s maze-puzzle. We went Ziggy-Zagging around in order to approach our pull through from the correct direction. I enjoyed the tour. In a valley, so cell phone (and TV) reception is poor. Was OK for an overnight stop.

If we could fit, we would have to park our Toads elsewhere, possibly on neighborhood streets. The closeness to the highway was also a turn-off. We moved on. The Manager was understanding and gracious.

PARK is the key word here. Wells Fargo RVP is a very convenient place to PARK in Tombstone. Its right in town, only 1/2 block from the OK Corral where the historic gunfight took place. But it is not much more than a place to park. The sites are poorly marked and defined. We (2 Motorhomes) had to get the manager to walk to and point out the small sites he expected us to squeeze into. When we got back from watching the reenactment we found they had squeezed a 5th wheel between us so there was only 9 1/2 inches clearance with our slide outs interlocked like a jigsaw puzzle. I can attest that the guy in the 5th wheel is a snorer, but so am I so we're even. If I come back I'd probably stay at the roomier park 1/2 mile away.

The only thing missing from this resort is trees, but this is West Texas and there just aren't many trees in this part of the country. Normally I would not call this a "destination" park but I'd go out of my way to stop here again. It's easy to navigate to and through with a huge shopping area just four miles away. And the one-fee-covers-all is great. I despise the places that advertise a low rate then nickle and dime you to death with charges for TV, WiFi, laundry and even showers.

Simply put, this is a GREAT place. The information folder says "your friendly, clean, quiet RV park". I think they should add some superlatives. Like "extremely" friendly and "exceptionally" clean. I echo with all of the previous comments except for the road noise (It's winter and the windows are closed). We'll definitely come back if in the area.

The ultimate park for groups, reunions, jamborees, ralleys, etc. My only complaint would be that you could be parked in the far reaches and find it difficult to partake in all the many many activities.

Someday this will be a great Campground. Someday they will get their cable TV to work. Someday they will train the staff efficiently. Someday they will arrange for trash disposal. Someday they will have more than one bathhouse with showers that all guests are allowed to use. Someday they will have WiFi that works more than 50 feet from the office. Someday they will have all this and be a great campground but for now it is just overpriced.

Some pull-in sites on the Bush River are really picturesque. Overall the CG is clean and neat but some seasonals could use some maintenance. Good cable, WiFi near office only. Nice 2nd floor rec room with internet service and deck overlooking the river. Follow their directions precisely, it IS where they say it is. A few miles to restaurants and shopping but it's only a 25 mile straight shot to Baltimore's Harbor Place, Little Italy and Fells Point where you can get all the Crab Cakes you want.

As nice as you'll find anywhere. Large clean, level, landscaped sites. All facilities and services are top notch. Shuttle to the top quality Casino and there's a Racino 6 miles away. Not much else in the area.

The Pits. How this place got a 4w rating is a mystery. One area of the park is wooded and pretty but you have to go thru "Skid Row" to get there. The "seasonals" and "forevers" are a miserable mess. Even the nicer area is dotted with "Fred Sanford" imitators. No cable. Trees block satellite. WiFi unusable (clerk had no idea of User ID or pass word). Batten down the hatches and everything else when driving through.

This is not a rating of the Resort, merely a comment. I find it odd that nowhere in Skyway's advertising pamphlets or web site do they have a picture or map of the campground itself.

The owner/manager must be twins or have a split personality. The guy that checked us in was a grouch. He spent ten minutes telling us the list of can'ts and don'ts. (A drip from your hose connection gets you kicked out) The third rig of our party to check-in, two hours later, got the happy twin. When I could not get WiFi to work I went back to the office for help. Guess who's back? He berated me and insisted I must be doing something wrong. I decided I could live without WiFi and backed out the door. The park was convenient and clean but not a destination park. I might stay there again but I’d let the wife check-in.

The park itself was nice but our stay was spoiled because we did not get the sites we reserved. Three months in advance, we reserved five sites (2 RV & 3 tent) and were promised and assured they would be "near" each other. One RV site was 1/4 mile from the nearest tent and the other was 100 yards in a different direction. Too far from the playground and activiy center for the kids to go alone. Neither RV site could get a WiFi signal. Our plea at the desk was answered with a curt "I can't do anything for you". What she meant is "I won't even try to help you". None of us will go back.

A typically wonderful, clean , quiet, wooded State Park. Oh, and dark. If you are going out of the park and not coming back until after dark be sure take your site-map with you and memorize the way to your site. My deepest apologies to the other campers who put up with me driving around and around in the dark trying to find our home.

Wonderful views from terraced sites. Sparkling clean. I can only imagine how pretty it is in the spring, summer and fall. All sites recently graded and leveled. Only negative: The severe slope of the property makes it hard to navigate, both by vehicle and on foot. Add snow and its a training hill for Bode Miller. We would surely stay here again if in the area.
