Probably our favorite RV Resort, only reason they received a 9, was they close their pool and hot tub at the end of August (may be because the pool was drained and sandblasted). A lot of activities, store and gas station, nice off leash dog park and very, very clean. We are RPI members, thus the low rate for electricity. Great park we stayed here with 41 foot motorhome and two dogs.

Have stayed here before, park is clean and has hot tub and pool. No issues, easy pull through and clean, most mobile homes are separate from RV sites. Will stay again, camped in 41' RV with 3 slides and two small dogs.

Almost did not stay here because of a previous review the same month. Glad we did stay as staff courteous, guided to our level site, good rate and within walking distance to town. I respect owner of previous review and have stayed at several RV resorts, but consider this is a campground, so we expect it to be a little more rustic. Had no problems and would stay here again, we stayed in 41 foot motorhome with toad and two small dogs. If anything, the place could use some more paint, but end of season.

Nice clean campground with awesome sites next to river. Dirt roads, but not too much dust. Estimated price as stayed here for a Beaver motorcoach rally. No complaints and would come again. Very nice pavilion for group events. Would have rated a 9, but all picnic tables in sad shape.

Very nice campground and friendly owners (retired military). Everything worked, very clean and great views. When we arrived, they had accidentally overbooked and they bent over backwards trying to remedy it for one night, including relocating their own RV. We were willing to park off to the side, but appreciated their efforts. Not sure of exact price as we came in as part of a Beaver motor coach rally. Would very much like to visit Taos again and would definitely stay here again. Very big rig accessible.

Great mom and pop type campground with a salt water pool, nice owner and friendly staff. The park is clean, the highway noise did not bother us at all, but were in a MH vs. a tent. Only about a mile from town and a great employee owned grocery (HYVEE) where you can get 2 for 1 over 55 meals very reasonable on Wednesdays. Staying here for a couple of months and would definitely stay here again. We were able to find a site with satellite reception.

Clean campground with dirt roads. Seasonal campers do not honor the 10 mph speed limit, threw up a lot of dust. Easy to get in with big rig and on a pretty river. Would not stay here again, music from River Inn just on the other side of the river keeps you awake and just kind of a different atmosphere here. There is a dump station, but price of $28 and no sewer at site seemed high to us.

Great mom and pop campground! Open May 1st to October 1st. Very friendly and directed us to site. Sites and road are gravel, so no dust. Firewood is free within reason and we liked the 12 noon checkout time. The seasonal people really liked the campground/owners and were very friendly. This is a great location close to Duluth, Proctor, Cloquet and Grand Lake. We only heard 2 trains during the day and it wasn't that bad. While they are kid friendly, there did not appear to be a lot of activities for kids unless they like to ride the ATV trails. Would most definitely stay here again.

First of all, we love our Thousand Trails membership and this park: they are great values. The staff is always friendly, the park is always clean and safe, a lot of things to do and we always enjoy coming here. That said, after 3 years of coming here, there are minor annoyances that crop up year after year. Primarily maintenance issues, pool showers that are sometimes warm, mostly cold, stick on or don't work. You never know how warm the pools will be, whereas in Peace River, the pool is always comfortable. Pillars and fencing around the pool need paint and minor repairs, a lot of lights to the entrance of the park are broken or not working. Maybe it is just the economy, but most of the maintenance items I listed are not costly, minor annoyances and give a poor first impression of the park. I will still definitely stay here again.

Really enjoyed this park, a very modern nice park mixed with a bit of old Florida in central Florida. None of the hustle, bustle of the coast and virtually no crime. There are excellent level campsites, the friendliest employees and residents of any park we have been to. We were driving down the road to the park and there were a couple of residents waving hi and welcoming us. Though located in the center of the state, this was a good locale for going to a lot of local events and seeing the Royal Lipizzaner-Myakka, the murals in Lake Placid, the Strawberry Fest, both coasts and golfing. They have a meal put on by the park on Saturdays and a lot of activities. Employees Carmen and Carol are very visible and well liked by the residents. We are from Wisconsin and will seriously consider buying a lot in the future if still available. We would definitely stay in this clean, well maintained park again.

The new manager has made a lot of positive changes at the park; very clean, well maintained, new ice cream shop and lots of energy. We enjoyed potlucks, crafting, free concert, and swimming pool/hot tub at comfortable temps. I put nightly rate at $1 as we are Thousand Trails members.

For a Class A with a tow vehicle I recommend not even pulling in, as there is no turnaround. Even without toad, it would be tight. Smaller class B's, C's and tent trailers would be fine, but not a very nice campground and very dusty. Managers were friendly, smiley but very hard to understand. We could not stay here.

Great City of Cloquet campground on St' Louis River with walking trails, catfishing, boat launch and within walking distance to quaint shops and parks. The historical Northeastern Hotel/Bar adjacent to the campground was featured in the movie "Iron Will". There is a dump station available for arrival or leaving. If not staying it is $5.00 to dump. This park is very clean and pretty, located on Dunlap Island. Access is off of Highway 33, head West on Cloquet Avenue and follow the road that parallels the bridges.

5% seasonal with about 13 campsites,6 pull throughs and the rest back-ins. Trees on both sides, so only a couple work good with slides, but length is not a problem. Located on Leech Lake with nice covered dockage. The pool is heated and warm. Very friendly owners and seasonal people. Campground is very clean and well maintained. Would definitely stay here again!

Excellent park with a lot of activities. Staff is very friendly. Sites are clean and easy access. We received our membership when we purchased our coach at Lazy Days. It was a great move for us because I cannot think of any negatives while staying here. It is within 6 miles of Disney and a lot of businesses close by.

Nice clean park with friendly staff and guests. Sites are very accessible, great warm swimming pool and owners have been putting in new more shaded sites in the new section of the park. Did not participate in the Saturday night bluegrass or other activities. This is a smaller quiet mom and pop park with less activity than resorts, and there are not any no-see-ums like we found in two resort parks in Crystal River. Would stay again. We received discounts, so lower rate than normal.

If you like "Old Florida" camping and a fun alternative to resort camping, you will really enjoy this park. It's like going back in time to the 60s', no internet, etc. There is canoe rental, wonderful nature trails with no bugs and a very good chance of getting a picture of an alligator. They are there if you watch for them. Only bugs were found by some fisherman that received some no-see-um bites while fishing near dusk. A fantastic swimming pool that is still down because of broken pump unfortunately. Staff is very friendly and park is exceptionally clean, there is a cafe and gift shop on site, but you are 7 to 10 miles from most services, so need to have groceries on hand.

A great campground, all sites very roomy and over 90% will have enough room for large motor homes & fifth wheels/trailers. Only problem we had was with Tengo internet service, paid for a month, only worked 10% or less of the time. Tengo would not respond to ours or our Canadian friends e-mails. This was only issue we had while staying here, otherwise great facilities and manager. Road noise from freeway was not that bad where we were, if you are not happy, they are very gracious and will assign you another if available. We stayed at a large discount because of our Thousand Trails membership.

Park is very friendly and has been making some positive changes for 2010. Some sites on the south side have freeway noise, we did not feel it was that bad, but others have asked to be put into another site where it is quieter. When room is available, management will honor the request. We would have rated this park a 10, except for this reason.

One of our favorite places to stay. Friendly people and a nice quieter park that is nicely located between the two coasts. Their is a new manager and changes happening, so hopefully the change is for the better. Most if not all of the sites are back-in, but very large and have not had a problem. We have enjoyed the walking trails by the river and always watch for the turtles, usually can spot an alligator.

Park is very clean, people are very friendly and very accessible to Sanibel/Captiva, beaches and businesses. We never did see management as it was Thanksgiving. Our site was so tight on a narrow road, other RV owners had to move cars and guide us in because of trees and roots even though we pulled in forward. Checked out Siesta Bay and Indian Creek while here, because of the ease of getting into their sites, would choose them next time. In fairness to Groves, some of the other sites are not as tight. If we had a smaller B or C motorhome, it would have been much more accessible.
