Rate is after KOA discount. The positive is people great, clean park and good pull thru site. Now the negatives: to reach this campground you travel 7 long miles through a busy commercial area and the turn to reach this property downright dangerous. As you wait to make a left hand turn vehicles are flying down this hill and this is what you have to deal with when you are leaving. No we will not be staying here again.

This is after the KOA discount. No, it is NOT an easy on/off I-81. The 4 miles is a slow drive on a narrow country road. We will not stop here again. The people were great, grounds clean but it is too difficult to get to for an overnight stay. We had a pull thru site for a 36' motorhome with a small car in tow.

The rate is after the military discount. This KOA is not directly off I-81 and you have to travel on some narrow country roads. Going into the property is off a curve in the road and down a short steep entrance. In the campground itself there are two roads to exit the sites with one being very short and steep so you need to decide which exit your rig can handle. The people at this KOA are very helpful and the grounds are kept clean. The Wi-Fi worked great and we would stay here again. We have a 36' RV with a small tow car.

This is an easy on/off of I-75 and we would stay again.The rate is after the KOA discount. The Internet worked early on but as more rigs setup for the night the service became bogged down. We had a front row pull-through site, which is great when traveling with pets and easy to get out of. Now the downside to this front row is the bright lights from the pole lights. If you are an early to bed person and need dark then I suggest you made some type of insert for your windows to block out the light. 2007 I made some for our trip to Alaska and used them here. The lights were still on after 11PM. We have a 36' rig with a small car in tow.

This park was easy to get to from interstate. Main campground has plenty of trees for shade while the seven pull-through sites across the quiet road are mostly in the sun. There are well kept rental trailers between the recreation area and campground with a paved path that goes between the trailers down to the recreation area. Between the office and the road is a small in-ground pool and down by the lake are two fishing piers, the beach and picnic grounds. Very nice the way it is laid out. I think there are boats you can use. Not sure if you have to rent. We plan to stay here on our return trip.

I agree with the other camper who said not to bother. We have camped at several military campgrounds and have always had a good experience. This is an exception to those other campgrounds. First we called the office number numerous times on different days and got a recording, left messages for call back and nothing. 3 hours before we arrived we called the office# and finally a woman answered and said there were 5 open sites. We arrived to find one site taped off with yellow caution tape, another site with a van parked off to the side in the woods but no vehicle on the pad. We pulled out and parked in parking area in front of the office hut and husband called base security to ask if it was OK to dry camp for the night. He was told to go to a building and check in which he did but guy in office had no idea why he was told that! Husband came back and drove back into campground to look at the site where van was parked and another camper told him the owner takes his rig out and is gone for days meaning site is not paid for but discourages someone from using it. We paid and used the site for the night. The remaining sites were occupied by long term people but not all workers. 1 retiree had been there since October so 2 week rule not in-forced. Another site had a 35' motorhome, 30' tow trailer, the truck to haul the trailer and 3 cars. Another site had a portable garage frame with tarp setup in front of the trailer. I would dry camp in a Walmart parking lot before returning here.

I am not sure of the total sites since I didn't count them while we were there. The campground is not directly off the interstate. Campground has full hookups and paved sites. There are 4 sites with travel trailers that appear to be permanent. Great place to walk pets and good location to tour Lincoln and visit friends who live in or around Lincoln.

Rate is with Good Sam 30 amp service. Easy on/off highway with little road noise. Pull-through site was level and easy to get into. There is a grass area out front to walk the pets but it is loaded with mosquitos. Good for an overnight.

We stayed here 3 years ago and enjoyed our time touring the various towns. This stay was shorter and we were pleased to see the campground is still neat looking with the owners hard at work mowing etc. Our site was level and near a tree that provided shade. Good for walking our dogs. We would stay here again.

The campground is easy to get to and neat in appearance. Most of the full hookups are occupied by seasonal sites and some of those sites are rather uneven. Quite a few of the overnight sites are only electric and water with a dump station at the entrance/exit section. The biggest complaint is the horrid odor from the compost area. I am all for recycling but there are better areas on this property to place it other than next to sites. It smelled like an open sewer and permeated the campground.

The rate is for Good Sam. It is a fair distance from the highway so it is not an easy on/off for a night. The road/driveway to the campground is very narrow and steep. There are more permanent mobile homes and campers than overnight sites. The overnight sites are only electric and water. Of the overnight sites, 5 are pull through sites with the rest back ins. We woke to find out there was no water, the campground tank had run dry due to large number of people here; mostly permanents. The Huron River is typical northeast river, muddy brown. No we would not stay here again.

This is the Good Sam rate. As other reviewers noted easy on/off the highway with very little road noise. To enter the campground you must stop at the gas station/deli in front to check in. It is very easy to pull in and gas up. We had no problems extending slides and there is a large grass area to walk the pets. If traveling through this area again we would stay here.

This rate is the military rate. The park is clean and has much to offer if you are traveling with children. We travel with our canine kids and walking our pets for bathroom runs was difficult since there are sites on both sides of the roads. If you have a dog that is canine unfriendly this could present a problem. With that said, it is an easy commute to old town, 30 minutes to Loveland. During our stay it was extremely hot so two days were spent at the pool which is very nice, however some of the kids made it a free for all, so we left. No idea where the adult supervision was. We would stay here again.

I will start with the positives first. The hosts are very nice people, you can see some of the Royal Gorge bridge, not far from Royal Gorge Park and Buckskin Joe, and there is some space between the sites. Negatives: The dog leash rule is not enforced by the hosts. While here a group of people camping never had their dogs on leashes. The owners saw this and at one point the smaller dog wandered up to hosts home and hosts brought the dog back asking if dog belonged to them. When told yes, NOTHING was said to them about keeping dogs on leash! Not safe for other people or dogs no matter how friendly the dogs are. WiFi was close to non-existent. Never got above low or no connection even going to pavillion close to dish. The bar across the street has a live band on the weekend and music goes until midnight. Across the street is the helipad for the helicoptor tours. On good days it doesn't stop. Unless you have your own satelittle you will not get TV reception. The sites are decent size but not level so bring blocks and it is dirt with some gravel. If you are close to the road you will definitely have road noise. The campground is for sale so I would not expect improvements.

Easy on/off to the interstate. Enjoyed touring the historic prison and county museum. Other than that not much to see. We reserved for 3 nights and that was 1 night too many. The campground is a mixture of sand and gravel and prior to our arrival and 2 days after it rained almost non stop which turned the grounds into a muddy mess. We travel with our dogs and it was so bad that I the towels I would use to wipe their wet coats down I had to place on the floor to avoid muddy carpets. Also train tracks are near thus several trains going through out the night. The dog pens were clean & a good place for Fido to work off some energy.

The place is for sale. Great views, hosts and easy to get to town. Park is dirt/gravel and not many level sites so takes plenty of blocks for leveling. We travel with our dogs and there were several areas to walk them. Wi-Fi was non existent at our site but I could get online going to the rec room in the main building. There is only 1 washer and 2 dryers which I didn't feel was adequate. We are not used to this altitude (close to 10,000') so we drove to town. After we left I found out there is an oxygen bar in 1 of the casinos in town which would have relieved some of the altitude issues. We were there for Donkey Derby Days and what a wonderful time. Several shuttles run between the campground and town. We would camp here again.

It is a beautiful campground with 2 excellent golf courses next to the campground. Did research online, and when I booked into Cottonwood I was told for a second time: only 20 amp service available. I later found out this is not correct. Sites 6, 10, 12, 14 are 50 amp with water and sewer. Sites 8, 24 are 30 amp with water but no sewer. The rest of the sites are 20 amp some with water and sewer while others only had water. We have a 35 1/2 ' motorhome with slides on each side and a car in tow and we easily fit into this site with room to spare. There are a few sites that will accommodate rigs our length and longer but do look online. We were here before, during and a few days after Memorial Weekend and there were some problems which were quickly taken care of by the campground hosts. Apparently a small number feel they are on a vacation from parental and pet duties when they go camping. As noted campground hosts were quick to take care of problems. We were able to pull in TV reception, however cell phone signals could only be had up near the rangers station but even then the signal would cut in and out. After 2 important calls dropped midway, I used the pay phone near the ranger station. From this campground you can easily do a day trip to Park City, tour Heber, Midway. Good and affordable restaurants as easy drive away. For WiFi there is a very nice grocery store in Midway that has a small food court and excellent WiFi. Also, the restaurants in the area have WiFi.

We are on a 5 month motorhome trip and have camped at private, national, state and military campgrounds and this one wins the dump prize. It is nothing but a large open gravel/sand lot that turns into a massive mud hole when it rains. We travel with our 2 dogs and there is no grass or even weed area to walk them in, just gravel/sand/mud. This is our 3rd KOA and while the others gave a discount for AARP, Good Sam, Retired Military this one was only KOA. So my advice is for you to save $39 and dry camp at Wal-Mart. At least there the lot is paved, not a mud hole.

A clean park with easy commute to Provo, Orem and surrounding towns. Sites are a bit close. My only issue is it rained quite a bit during the night and some sites flooded. The back of our site, where we parked the car had a large puddle of water. While I was in the office a fellow camper came in and said he needed another site since his rig was surrounded by water. The park is quiet at night. River walk goes along side and back of campground and is a wonderful place to walk dogs or yourself . The hosts are friendly and helpful. If we were to come this way again we would stay here, but I would inspect the site before setting up to make sure we were not in a site that has flood potential.

The rate reflects a discount. I would advise anyone coming to Moab to look online to determine what events are going on during their stay. We arrived on a Thursday and unknown to us the Indy 500 of ATV racing was going on. Place was buzzing with every type of ATV made. The racing oval is next to this RV park. Sites are close and the park tends to be dusty. We travel with our dogs and best place to walk them was in back of the park near the racing oval, but you need to be aware of the nasty burrs that stick in pets paws . The 2 washers and dryers worked well, but there is not enough machines for the number of sites. The cable TV and WiFi worked well. If we were to return to Moab we would select a park closer to town.

This a beautiful but isolated park. The lake is fed by water from the mountains and currently it is 1/3 filled. If you are a golf, water sports or ATV enthusiast, then you will love this state park. If none of those apply then you may be bored after a few days here. There is fresh water available at the dump station along with other faucets within the campground. We are in site 18 and sitting at the front of the MH, the WiFi is excellent. Don't know how connection is for sites in the loop. Of the 20 sites, there are 4 sites 44' and longer. For a small campground there is a good amount of space between the sites in the loop. In the pull through section, they seem to be closer. The camp host is very helpful. The nine-hole golf course ($15 for 9 holes and cart) is a challenge and in the process of being expanded to an 18-hole course, which will be completed this fall. I would suggest you call for a tee time.

We enjoyed our stay at this park. It is clean and quiet at night and is an easy commute into Capitol Reef NP. We travel with our dogs, and there are several grassy areas to walk them in. A treat was the evening show the horses and cows on the farm next to the RV park put on after 6 PM every night. If you are fortunate to get a site with a view of the watering hole in the pasture have your cameras ready. We would definitely stay here again

First the positives: beautiful campground, quiet and a great place to walk pets. The sites are wonderful, and we like that they have recycle bins for just about everything. It was a short walk to the visitors center. Negatives: months before reserving I emailed to ask about potable water and dump station and was told both were near campground. When we checked in we asked if the 8 pm generator time was extended since evening temps were 30's and going down and ranger said no and nothing more. When we arrived at our site we were informed by our neighbors that dump/potable water station was closed due to extremely cold weather and if we needed fresh water we would have to drive back to Rubys Inn and pay to fill fresh water tank. It wasn't the paying that got me it was the ranger not informing us at check in that annoyed me. The first night it was 35, the second night 29 with night 4 &5 going to low 20's with snow. We had enough of the cold and left after 2 nights. The 2 days we were there we ran the generator until 8 PM each night, pulled in slides to contain heat, piled on blankets etc.. This park was 1/4 filled with sites reserved but campers never showed up. Such a shame this park wasn't filled. I think if they brought in electric it would be filled like Zion and with that more money spent in and around the park.

This park is beautiful! I reserved online months before to get a site large enough to accommodate our motorhome, and it was wonderful. The red rock scenery is awesome and there is a nice walk along the river to walk pets. You can walk to Sprindale via this walkway also. Nice to have electric for the warm days and cool evenings. Hubby used the bathroom once and said it was clean but lacked hand soap, warm water or hand blower to clean hands. We entered the park via the East Entrance and had to disconnect car from motorhome to handle the switchbacks. If you are unable to disconnect you will have to use South Entry. We loved our stay and would camp here again

Clean park surrounded by red rocks. Ground is crushed stone. Sites are a bit close together but I have seen worse. The walk area for pets is mostly gravel so if your pets only like grass they may have issues. The park is clean and great to use as a base for touring. There is an indoor heated pool, but we did not use it

The price reflects base price, plus taxes minus Good Sam discount. This is the most expensive park on our 5 1/2 month tour but we felt it was worth it for a number of reasons. The cement pad we had is close to level which made setting up easy. There is gravel, not dirt and leaves all around, which helped keep the rig clean. WiFi connection was excellent and cable TV was excellent. We travel without dogs and the large enclosed off-leash play area is great for them to run off their energy. One sniff near a cactus and they knew to avoid them. If you are 60 or over, you can ride the public transportation bus all over for a $1 per day with the bus stopping right outside the park entrance. This bus takes you downtown etc. If you have a car we found it easy to drive into downtown where there are several public parking garages or lots where all day parking is $9. The only exception was the La Fonda garage which was more. We used Trailer Ranch as a base to tour downtown, and head to Estrella Vineyards. If we had the time, we would have continued onto Taos. Not to far from the park there are 2 grocery stores and other stores. I used the laundry room twice and facilities were clean, but bring plenty of quarters.

This is a good stopover for a night. Easy to get to from I-40. Park is clean, the owner friendly. Their RV Park is all stone but clean and there is adequate space between rigs. We travel with our pets and the owner told us we could walk them in back. If we were passing that way again we would stop for a night at this RV Park.

We loved this campground. If there were sewer at the sites I would have said a 10. This park campground is so many things. Beautiful, peaceful, great location, walk to an 18 hole golf course, wonderful place to walk along with great place to camp with your pets. We had a large pull through site facing the lake and there was plenty of room between the next site. The sites in the middle that offered 50 amp service were closer to each other. Dallas is 24 miles south, Grapevine 30 minutes,and Carrollton not too far away. If in Carrollton go to Babes restaurant and take a camera. A word of warning if you are a timid driver; I-35 is always busy. You can get to the Grapevine Outlet Mall and Grapevine Golf Course by taking Main St to Flower Mound then 2499 into Grapevine.

This is a 5 site campground and good for a night's stay. All sites are back in and payment is on the honor system during the nights and weekends. The park is quiet, well lit, and offers a paved walk around the pond/lake. If you travel with pets this walk makes for a good exercise loop. We would camp here again. There is no sewer or septic on site.There are no rest rooms, but I had to check no for this review to go through.

The pros are its location to tour Lafayette and surrounding towns. It is low off the road in a well treed area and that may make TV reception a problem. We have an analog TV with converter box and roof antenna and Fox came in fairly well the first 2 nights but the last night reception was terrible. There isn't much room between sites and if you have a good size rig you may have a difficult time getting in and out of sites due to closeness. Just outside the campground is a nice children park complete with swings, slides and more. Also there is a challenging disc golf course that is on the disc golf pro tour. On the grounds is a wonderful nature preserve with various boardwalks. For us the con is the leash law for dogs not enforced. Upon arrival there were 2 dogs running around and when we asked the manager if there were leash laws he said yes but did not go over to the person walking the dogs off leash.

We camped here 4 days and this park is AWESOME! The $11 rate is after the Golden Access card. There are a few RV sites in the new campground that offer sewer hookups but none in the old campground so far. We had no problems getting in our site which is paved and level. We used this park as a base to tour Metaire Cemetary across the 24 mile causeway, Abita Brewery, Ponchatrain Vineyards, Slidell. The park is a wonderful place to walk, ride bikes or just plain kick back and relax. The wifi is very good at our location (site 120). I would have given this park a 10 if all sites offered sewer hookups. The camp hosts are quite helpful.

Easy on and off interstate. Check-in easy and the folks friendly. The park is clean and quiet. Our pull thru site was level. We had to take our time getting out since roads were a little narrow for our rig but not a big deal. The permanent units are well kept and the dog walk area is large and clean. We would stay here again.

The pluses are close to the interstate, it is quiet, the river side sites are spacious pull thrus and the inside sites are nice. The negatives are there are some permanent travel trailer setups that are not in the best of shape. There is an old Executive class A that is being used as storage unit. 1 channel of TV and the Wi-Fi they claim to have available in the area near the store is awful. For the price we paid I expect to have more than 1 channel and non existent Wi-Fi. Will look for someplace else when we travel to FL. end of October.

We have a large motorhome with a small car in tow and it was tight going around some turns but we made it. The campground is clean. Good places to walk the pets and wonderful place for kids to be kids and ride their bikes, scooters etc.. We used this park as a base for touring. A drive to Shark Valley was an hour away. Hope to return next December.

The location is easy on/off interstate and short commute into West Fargo and Fargo. The full hookup sites are limited. When we arrived the 12 asphalt pad sites were occupied leaving gravel and grassy sites. There were some sites occupied by small travel trailers setup as permanent homes. A few were rather shabby. We could not find a site that was level with full hookups so we went to water supply filled water tank and selected a site with electric only. There were some sites with electric and water BUT they were uneven, the water pressure was bad and the electric boxes were just plain scary. My 1 visit to the ladies room bathroom was enough. Did quickie showers and used paper plates to conserve water.

Think circle the wagons and you have this campground. Large open gravel lot in the wide open with very strong wind. We rolled in our awnings for fear they would be ripped off. We later found out the strong winds are normal here. We intended to spend 1 night (Sunday) however we encountered a problem with 1 of our tire rims and stayed an additional day to have the rim looked at in town. Owner wasn't grumpy and even suggested the repair shop to take our rig to the following day. He also mentioned a golf course called Marias Valley Golf & Country Club nearby for hubby to play at. A nice course tucked between barren rolling hills. Hubby enjoyed it.

We left beautiful and quiet Whistlers Campground in Jasper National Park and entered railroad hell. We were located in the row farthest from the tracks but it didn't make a difference.The sites are set-up to accommodate 2 rigs per site and it is very tight. Once our dining slide went out we could have passed the Grey Poupon mustard to our neighbor. On the plus there is a very nice walking path that runs along the stream in back and it is a good location to tour Banff and surrounding areas. We saw everything we wanted & had enough of the trains to depart a day early.

This is the most beautiful campground we have stayed in. Waking up our first morning to see the Elk bedded down near our motorhome was a treat. There is plenty of room between sites and a great place to walk & clean up after your dogs. The only problem we had was the blow over smoke from the camp sites that allowed a campfire the first 2 nights of our stay. Great location to tour from.

This is a campground opened to active/retired military & DoD Civilians and the rate is based on your grade. The facility offers discounts on fishing & scenic day tours out of Seward. The sites are very close together to say the least. When you reserve you are not assigned a site until you arrive HOWEVER when we arrived the site we received was too narrow to open our slides and we requested the wider vacant site 2 up from us. We were refused & told they were already taken.We stated their policy of assigning a site upon arrival but it seems a retired officer was leading a SMART tour and he was able to "cherry pick" the sites for his group prior to arrival. The woman at the desk said she had no control over this situation. We were given another site that was still tight but at least we were able to put our slides out. This campground was OK for 2 days.

The price reflects the Golden Pass Discount. We reserved a site for our 35' motorhome however when we arrived mid afternoon we found most of the longer sites were once again occupied by smaller rigs that could easily have fit in sites not as long. On the plus side the campground was very clean and quiet and the Wi-Fi reception at the office worked well. The Riley Creek mercantile is very expensive. It seemed everything was twice the normal price so bring what you feel you will need for food. We are self contained but I did look at the shower prices and felt they were expensive. Overall we enjoyed our camping experience.

This is a first come first serve campground for Active Duty, Retirees, DOD & NAF Civilians only. 44 of the sites are full hookups. Rates are determined by rank. Most sites have trees that provide either partial or full shade. If all sites are taken there is a dry camping location that will easily accommodate at least 8 rigs. To say this campground is awesome is an understatement. Wildlife abounds, you are a short drive to Anchorage to tour around, discount tickets available on base for various excursions, motorized & non-motorized boats for rent and for the golfer there are 2 different courses, The Hill Course and the Creek Course at Moose Run make-up the World's Northernmost 36-hole golf course. Husband played both and saw moose on the Hill course. He completely enjoyed both the sites and courses. Fort Richardson and Elmendorf are connected so you can eat like a king at the Air Force Iditarod dining facility. Camp hosts were outstanding. Unless you are a very late sleeper (11AM) you will see and hear the Air Force jets going through maneuvers. That was a thrill for us to see. I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay.

Good location to stop at on the way to Denali. Campground is a large gravel lot with hookups. There are a few permanent setups that are on the shabby side. It was not busy when we were there so we had the pick of locations. Extra $2 charge for dogs. WI-FI was available in the office only. Easy commute from campground to shopping, restaurants.

We reserved our site online with no problems. Online site is very helpful as you can view the site and the informations for each such as full sun, shade, length of site. We found this very helpful. The bathrooms were immaculate. Outside the fence surrounding the campground was a herd of roaming buffalo. This state park is awesome with so many beautiful areas to tour and the animal life is wonderful. 1 of our tour days we encountered the 2 separate herds of wild begging burros who LOVE junk food. We were in CSP for 7 days and used it as a base to tour the Wild Horse Sanctuary,surrounding towns. Would return in a heartbeat.There are informational shows in the barn however we were too busy touring around to attend any. If you go allow enough time to truly enjoy this park and the surrounding areas. The only reason a 9 is no full hookups. There is a dump station with water if you run low.

Would be a 10 if there was a laundry area on the grounds. Just a short commute into Stewart & Hyder. Great location and good folks run the park. Park itself is shaded, grass with gravel sites. It is very clean and quiet. I would highly recommend staying at this park.

This campground is absolutely beautiful! Surrounded by mountains, glaciers. It would have a 10 if w/e hookups and a dump station were available. There is water but you must hand pump it into jugs and carry them off to your site.There are NO showers but I had to indicate an answer regarding showers.The sites are spacious and wooded so there is no lack of privacy. The sites are either single or double. There are several drive through sites that allow larger rigs to use the cg. While we were there the AK. national bird, the mosquito, was out in force so bring bug spray.

What a dump! If I could give it a -10 I would. The only good thing is easy access to Highway 2 but then you get the road noise. We reserved a full hookup site but what was left the previous motorhome's jack sunk in the ground so we took an electric/water site with plans to use dump site the following A.M. The front and back roads were both rutted and filled with water. Areas where roads were dry dust blew off them. Several sites setup as fulltime and not the best. The following A.M. we pulled out to dump and it was filled to the brim with human waste on the ground!Reported it to the office and had to dump at an open site. This is also a Good Sam place. Think they need to check these places more before a logo is handed out.

Easy to get to. At the confluence of 2 rivers but you will hear boat noise. During our stay a jet boat kept roaring by and it was deafening. The park is clean but the issue was the site assigned to us and the price. We asked for a full service site and there was 1 left with the rest electric/water or no hookups. The full service site was a mess. The utility box sat in the middle of a huge puddle and there was no way to get around it. Somehow standing in water hooking up electric didn't seem to be a prudent idea. Tried to position MH over and the wheels sunk 9 inches in so we got out of site. Husband went to office to request another site and was assigned one with electric & water. Owner would not refund so much a dollar and claimed all the sites cost the same.

This campground is for hard sided campers only; the sites are close together. We were in a smaller loop on an end site so we only had 1 neighbor with the other side facing the road. There are pine trees between some sites but not all. As for shade not much. There are about 7-8 loops with the largest loop at the end of the entry road. We were there a week and the mosquito's were out in force early afternoon so bring bug spray. There are 2 coyotes running around the loops also. Laundry is expensive with both washers and dryers front loaders. Wash $1.50 dry $1.25. If your rig lacks a shower or you cannot use it a shower will set you back $3.25 per person. There is no wifi but I was told it is under consideration for next year. Currently only the summer help staying in the dorms at the lodge have wifi. Cell phones do not work in cg either. We were told if you drive 20 minutes from the lodge near the lake there is a location that your cell will work. We enjoyed staying in the park but it is expensive.

Peter D is a great guy! His suggestion for a restaurant to have dinner was excellent. The wifi worked well which was nice. If our vacation plans had allowed we would have stayed on another day. Easy on/off the interstate. Will stay again if we are ever in the area.

The location isn't far from the main attractions and for the price not bad. Our site was close to the road so we did have traffic noise. Due to heavy rain we did not walk around the park to look at other sites.From our site we did see several permanent mobil homes but for the most part they are clean. The owners are friendly and very helpful. The addition of cable & wifi would be nice.

I took a guess at the number of sites however I am not sure. This campground is a bit of a drive off the interstate to get to therefor we will opt for another location closer to the interstate.Many sites are either occupied by fifth wheel units or travel trailers setup for permanent weekend use. As for full hookups there appeared to be only 3 available.

When the state fair is not going on there are over 1800 sites available. It is a beautiful location on the hill overlooking the fairgrounds and not too far from the interstates. The entrance to the campground is through the fairground which appears to be a small town setting. There is golf nearby, shopping etc. With our motorhome antenna we were able to bring in 3 stations however for WiFi we had to go to the local library. We would stay here again.

We were here for 3 nights and our site was decent however we did have road noise from the interstate. It is located next to the visitors center so you are able to get tourist information. Also at the V/C is the trolley and for $10 you can take a tour of the historic parts of Butte. The only negative is the laundry. 5-6 washers worked HOWEVER out of 6 dryers only 2 worked. When 2 of us went to the office to report the problem we were informed the owner was aware but it may be too costly to repair. This was not impressive.

WONDERFUL!!Check-in a breeze and received a beautiful pull-through site with shade. Only different thing was sewer on 1 side & rest of hookups on other but it worked. WiFi superb. They have dinner and breakfast and we had the dinner (Native American tacos) with dessert for $18 and it was delicious. I would suggest this KOA to anyone who wants to tour the Badlands for several days. Only drawback is it is not near shopping to restock on food.

The staff was very friendly and efficient in the check-in process. I made the reservation on line indicating a 35' motorhome towing and it has slides and was assigned a back in site with water & electric. Had the confirmation sheet showing above information so it was not my error. The price was $29.41. When we arrived they said the site would not be big enough and assigned us a back site along hwy (yes there is noise)and it was $14 more hence the $43 charge which I thought was a bit high. Anyway we stayed the night. It is clean and easy on off access but still feel price was high.

This place is a mosquito feeding ground to say the least. We arrived early afternoon and became living buffets for the things! While the folks are friendly and laid back about the check-in process the place is between a swamp and a fishing hole. Most of the sites are filled with permanent travel trailers & fifth wheels however there were only a few that had people using them. There is a dump station on the way out but that is it for sewer. As for pull through there are only 2-3 sites and our 35.5-foot MH just fit; anything larger, no way. Would suggest staying at Wally World before going here.

This is a hidden gem. It is very quiet and all sites are spacious. We stayed in the older section and it was somewhat level. When we return we will opt for section B, the newer section, where the sites are paved and more level than the A section.We travel with our dogs and this is a wonderful campground to go with them. The location is wonderful for day trips to Richmond or if you just want to go to Chesterfield for a meal. Our cell phones worked for outgoing and incoming calls. There is a dump station at the entrance/exit of the campground entrance. As for television we were able to pull in 3 stations. We will return

We were assigned site 108 and the noise from the highway is constant and loud 24 hours. If you stay here avoid sites 106-108, 211-213, 311 and 312 and 411 & 412 for this reason. The closer to the office you get the less noise.There are some permanent campers set-up in this park and for the most part are a bit on the shabby side. The section in back of us is a storage area with campers in various state, some decent and some old with flat tires etc..When we return to tour Amish Country later this year we will not stay here.They are pet friendly and have a large grassy sloped area to walk the dogs.
