We love this campground. The sites are the most spacious we've ever stayed in. Clean, big bath houses (25 cents for shower). There are no sewers but honey wagon available. With week's stay, pumping out is free. Weekend activities for kids, lake for swimming. Limited shade. Quiet as a church mouse at night. Big sturdy fire rings. Patrolled by sheriffs constantly. We stay here each year.
The ad in Woodall's for this campground always looked inviting. The reality is the amenities are many but the sites and roadways are way too narrow for big rigs. Our four slides are intruding on our neighbors. Leaving will require a less than 90 degree turn in either direction so we're not sure how this is going to work. There are trains nearby but didn't disturb my sleep. The Wi-Fi is spotty so I'm using my own. I doubt we would stay here again.
This is a nice park with good amenities. However, the $23 rate reflects a half off coupon I found on the internet. For the regular rate of $46 I would expect an escort to my site, wider roads, a table without having to ask for one, a patio large enough to accommodate that table and still let me get out the door, room for my awning, FREE WiFi (not $5/day and didn't work all that well), cable TV with some digital channels instead of all analog and office workers who weren't using curse words at the counter. Without the coupon, I wouldn't stay here again.
Rate was actually $0, reflecting an August promotion. Wonderful campground but lacks shade. Everything else is terrific. Huge sites, lovely baths and laundry. Any time but summer would be delightful here. Crickets are a problem at night in the summer. They are all over the place. I'd stay here again.
This has become a Jellystone Park so there are lots of kids especially on weekends. It is confusing to get here and the Trailer Life directions aren't specific enough for someone not familiar with the area. Sites are short for longer rigs but doable. Pretty easy in and out. My biggest gripe is the Wi-Fi. It simply isn't reliable. I tried in my rig, on the porch and in the office without success. When I finally did connect early in the morning, the access code was no good even though it said good for 3 days and expired the next week. Staff is pleasant and I'd stay again but not on a weekend.
This campground is run by the nicest couple. However, it lacks amenities. Sites are in a gravel field, side by side hook-ups. If full, it would be VERY crowded. One small room that is laundry and bathroom. Your laundry could be held hostage by someone taking a shower! $1 for 8 minute shower. 15 cents per KWH over 20 per day. With A/C, that's going to happen. Far from White Sands Monument. OK for overnight but that's about it.
The price reflects the weekly rate. We chose this park because it has Wi-Fi and cable TV: but neither one worked for us. We had to use our outside antenna for local channels and go to the breakfast room to get Wi-Fi even though we were parked under an antenna. The breakfast, laundry, restrooms, pool, etc., are very nice. But we really wanted good TV and Wi-Fi for the week. This is not out of the ordinary however, we have been in many parks that advertise cable TV and Wi-Fi only to find neither one works acceptably.
This park is conveniently located to town; however, it is the most discombobulated layout I've ever encountered. Sites 1-4, where we were, are such that you can only leave with the cooperation of your neighbors. Each morning there was the pick-up shuffle. I don't think I would stay here again.
Easy in-and-out campground just south of town. Road noise was not a problem. However, there is not a lick of shade and in the 100+ heat, this mattered. But the PA rate makes it a good deal. If I was paying full price I'd stay at Spanish Trails a little south of here. Great Wi-Fi.
For the price I would think you would get better than gravel roads and sites, no pool, no cable and spotty Wi-Fi. They did have wonderful restrooms, a nice view and a convenient location. Spaces on top, by the office are spacious. Would not want to be in the back, down the hill: very, very tight down there. We probably would stay again.
PA is no longer honored in July. Wi-fi worked OK. No antenna TV at all. Verizon phone service good. Many holes from gophers could cause ankle injury. Sites are barely gravel anymore. Lots of road noise especially in front row. Sites, bathhouse and laundry is all that is there. Good price for convenience to Yellowstone. Not sure if we would stay here again.
Our reservation for two pull-thrus, because we did not want to unhook, wasn't honored. We had to accept one back-in and use an orange cone in front of our truck. The water ran brown when we first turned it on. One of three dryers in the laundry had dry clothes in it so I moved them to the folding table and put my wet clothes in. I discovered it didn't work after 30 minutes of waiting. When I told the manager he said they keep clothes in the dryer so people "will know it is out of order." What? I suggested a sign. Apparently they keep clothes on top of the first washer for the same reason. The interstate noise isn't terrible. Haven't heard the train yet. I was unable to get their wifi to even register on my computer. I'd prefer to stop someplace else but if there wasn't anything nearby, I'd bite the bullet and stay again.
This park has long, level spacious sites. No problem there. They need better directions from I-90. I had to call twice and they said everyone gets confused so it wasn't just me. The sign at the entrance could use a "turn here" added to it. It's hard to decide if they mean "right at this driveway" or the next one. The Wi-Fi may work at the office but didn't at our site. We do not have satellite and cannot get any TV reception. There are only two showers and two commodes for the whole park; also, only two washers and dryers. I based my rating on no pool and these other inconveniences but I'd stay again, especially considering the other parks I've seen in the area.
Sh-h-h-h, don't tell anyone else about this great campground. Whether you are overnighting or spending the weekend, this park is great. Passport rate makes it even better. I'd use it anytime I was traveling I-80.
Barely OK to use as an overnighter. Sites are humped in the middle and that causes leveling problems. I would recommend R&R next door based on upkeep looks, shade, etc. However, I'd stay here again if I had to.
This is a closed community park with camping allowed by various camping groups; i.e., Passport, Escapees, etc. Sites are along a fence at the entry way. Utilities are three to a pole with two 30 and one 50. If full, this could be a problem not to mention the need for extra cord by the third person on the pole. You park on grass. People are super friendly and it is close to Shipshewana area. OK for the price.
Everyone was so friendly and the pool was sparkling clean so I would like to give this place a nice rating but I can't. There are only about 14 sites scattered throughout the park that are available to the public, the rest are seasonal permanents. It is hard to maneuver through the park and no info was given on arrival. Showers are on par with an average state park. The sites are bare minimum strips of gravel amongst the permanents. The utilities are in goofy places. We had to borrow an extra cord to make it to the front where the electric box was. Our companions had to open their motorhome door carefully because the water connection was right there. Unless I was desperate, I'd look a little further for a place to stay.
This place is unique. I worried about my decision after reading the other reviews so I'll address what were my concerns. Road in is not bad at all. We were allowed to pick our own spot and parked facing our traveling companions. We asked if we could trim branches that were in the way and were given permission. We were given permission to wash our vehicles. Laundry is a flat fee of $4.50 for as many loads as you have. Horses are not a problem and are enjoyable. View of the Badlands is spectacular. Showers are small and only have curtain but there are full hook ups so it is easy to use your own facilities if that bothers you. Is it a resort? Not by a long shot but I'd stay again in a minute.
The previous writer is right on. I got in trouble at the potluck for eating from the wrong side of the table, for not wearing my badge and for tapping my bingo card to move the red windows ... and that was within the first 3 days! Park amenities are OK, right price, convenient but the residents seem to resent "intruders" and aren't that friendly.
We were allowed in this park via a base pass to attend basic training graduation for a relative. It made it convenient to spend base pass time with our airman. The sites are close side to side but adequate. There is free laundry, nice restrooms and showers. Wi-fi worked great. 29.3985, -98.6143
We evacuated here during Ike. It was a God send during a difficult time; however, it is at best a stopover place in normal times. There is only gravel roads and spots and two rigs got stuck. There are no patios or picnic tables. The game room and rally room are nice but there is no other amenity at this park. The price was PA and well worth it. The hosts are great people. A little TLC could turn this into a great park.
This is a nice park very close to Disney but it was virtually empty. Lower rates might fix this problem. We were without water for about 24 hours and communication about the problem wasn't very good. They did refund that day's rate. We had to leave early due to my husband's health and they gave us a refund. Most campgrounds wouldn't and we certainly appreciated it. The sites are a little tight but doable with a big rig. Fun place for kids.
A very well maintained park with unusually large pull thru sites. There are no amenities other than a bath house but very nice staff. It's great for an overnight on I-10 and I wouldn't hesitate to stay for several days if I had someone to visit in the area.
We visited this park while in the area. The sites near the highway are VERY short and close together. Parking would take some doing. Those on the beach look like a chaotic parking lot. I guarantee your slides and awning will touch your neighbors. The chaos comes from where to park your tow vehicle or toad. The rates were $79-$132 per night! The thought of all that sand and salt water getting into and on my rig doesn't make me warm and fuzzy.
This seems to be a "value" campground for snowbirds. All grass sites with no particular markings. Pull-throughs are made by pulling through another site. Passport America rate and closeness to I-75 got us to stop for a night.
This is the NICEST park we have ever stayed at. If it had wi-fi I would have given it a 10. Big sites, concrete pads, wonderful landscaping, nice pool, excellent bathrooms and a tram to a beautiful beach. Try it, you'll like it!
This is a decent overnight stop park, but probably is lacking as a destination park. It was not noisy. I could not find a bath house, just the restroom in the office. This building is kept very nicely. I'd stay here again because it was acceptable and is close to family.
We were underwhelmed at the appearance of this campground. It has a very hard entrance to find and all the gravel, including the road in, leaves a lot to be desired. We set up, tried the wi-fi on two different computers and got nowhere. Then we had an emergency and had to leave. The owner was most gracious in returning our money. That's not the norm and we appreciate his effort. For that reason alone, I'd give this place another shot.
This is Wal-Mart with full hookups. There is no office, no bathrooms, no grass. The utilities are on a very nice pedestal and work great. However the rate is stiff for just a place to park for the night.
This is a nice enough park; however, it is a little tight for bigger rigs. My chief complaint is that the toilets would not flush in the women's bathroom. When all three were "dirty" it smelled as if someone has used the shower to urinate. I had to flush a toilet 12 times and it never did clear. There's very little assistance from the workampers. There are no directions when you arrive, just a note saying they will be on at 2 pm but a helpful camper said it would probably be more like 4 pm.
Shhh! Don't tell anyone else about this park. It is a delightful area 3 miles south of town. Roomy side-by-side sites on gravel, full hook ups with cable for $20. Wi-fi available for $3 but so weak it's not worth bothering with. Standard municipal type bathrooms that are clean. Next to the airport but just a few small planes took off or landed so not a noise problem. Some of the pull thrus require you to either pull in and back out or back in and pull out if you have a big rig but there's plenty of room to do it easily.
We stayed here in March, which according to them is an "event" so the rate is $50. No discounts! The park is conveniently located to downtown Austin, has private but small sites. The roads are extremely tight and it's impossible not to brush up against bushes pulling in or out.
This had to be "Cactus Motor Court" on Route 66 in the heyday of that road. Sandstone "rooms" form a U but they don't appear to be in use anymore and the court is now filled in with gravel and pull through sites. Easy in and out, full hook ups, cable (though our neighbor took our slot but we got good TV with our antenna) and the WiFi didn't work at all. Walking distance to a nice restaurant and for the PA price, not a bad deal.
This is mostly a "seasonals" park with a heavy emphasis on park models. There are two rows of pull through sites for overnighters. The row you can get into easily and out of easily are 30 amp, no sewer. The other row is 50 amp Full hook up, but you can't get out! We watched a motorhome try, stop, unhook his toad, back up three times to finally get out by brushing the trees. Then he had to redo the toad. We decided to back out of the site, across the road, into the empty 30 amp site, and go out the way we came in. Very poor set up.
This is a blacktopped parking lot with red lava rocks between sites. Not very "pretty" but this is the desert. Great sites, lovely restrooms and showers. All amenities (pool, playground, etc.) are at the hotel across the street. Nice place to visit the town of Williams. Without the train trip package, rate is $44. There are no signs from the x-way to the campground and lots of people get lost. Desk clerks are aware of the problem but corporate hasn't helped.
This park has side by side hook-ups that I just don't like. Also, the sites are rather short and you have to unhook and put your toad or tow vehicle in the parking area. There is no cable and what you can get with your antenna is nothing to write home about. Owners were helpful and it served as a nice place to visit Bryce. But for the price, I'd like something better.
Nice spot to tour area and Yellowstone at a good rate. Work campers run hot and cold. Wifi didn't work 5 of the 7 days we were there but they offered a refund. The 90 degree turns into the sites require you to unhook your toad at the office or if you have a trailer, you need to pull thru and then back up to straighten out. Not a great park but plenty good for the price.
Large KOA off I-80 but we heard no traffic noise. All pull thru sites but with those awful side-by-side hook ups which has you almost sleeping with your neighbor on one side and having breakfast at the picnic table with the one on the other side! Sites were easy to get into. All gravel, no grass or trees but nicely landscaped "spots" throughout the park. Nice pool and hot tub. Good wi-fi and cable. We would definitely use this park as a stopover again.
The amenities in this park are among the finest I have seen. The RV sites are the worst I have seen in 31 years of camping. The roads are too narrow, the sites are too narrow. You are slammed up against your neighbor with side by side hook-ups and then share your "front yard" with your other neighbor. He gets the front half, you get the back half. This place makes KOA (keep on adding) look like a piker! You pay extra for kids, pets, 50 amps, cable, wi-fi. The daily charge certainly isn't worth it when you have to pay all those other charges. We didn't have kids, pets or use cable but the 50 amp and wi-fi cost us additional. The back-in sites around the perimeter are better spaced but they are short and you can have your choice of backing up to a factory or a biker bar! This is about the "only game in town" so they charge what the market will bear. Personally, I'd camp in Colorado Springs and drive to Denver next time.
We were very disappointed when we drove into this campground. The office is new but the bathrooms are in a dilapidated building. They weren't really "dirty" but the mold, falling in ceiling didn't make we warm and fuzzy! Several locks were missing and the shower pressure was poor in the women's bathroom. There are some really rundown trailers around and I wondered about their occupants though I didn't see any. The water connection is a pull thing, not a handle to turn on. The lake does not have sand but mud. The sign in the bathroom says to wash the mud off in the lake or hose off. Mmmm, sounds wonderful. There are about a half dozen pull thrus for travelers. The rest seem to be permanents. There's not a lot to choose from in the Dayton area so I'd stay again overnight if I had to but I would rather not. I'm surprised no one mentioned the train track that is right next to the campground. When you come down the road to the entrance you think you are going to cross a train track based on the signs and then the entrance is right there. It goes as close as it can get without being in the campground.
This is a shady, roomy park between Birch Run Outlet Malls and Frankenmuth. The sites are large and there are many shade trees. There are nice full hook up pull thru sites available. There are no amenities to speak of. I saw 4 swings, a slide and a basketball hoop. There is a rally hall but it didn't seem to be in use when we were there. There is no wi-fi or cable TV. The price is because of where it is located. My gripe is with 25 cent showers and a $3 visitor charge. No one would visit except to see someone they know which means sitting under a friend's awning drinking their beer. There's nothing else to do. Why would anyone come in? We attended a family reunion in Frankenmuth and no one could come see our rig without paying to come in. With a pool, better playground, cable and wi-fi, this park could be a 10.
Closest campground to Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. Easy access, all pull-throughs but mostly 20 amps, about 30 30 amps. Nice office help. Close to Wal-Mart, etc. Grass sites may be messy in bad weather. We enjoyed our stay here.
One of the nicest bathrooms I've seen in a campground. Sites are not great, especially in bad weather. Easy access off I-69. Wi-fi did not work and office didn't seem to care or know what to do about it. I was leaving so didn't pursue it. Nice pavilion and kitchen for rallies. Apparently the manager can be difficult to deal with. I personally had minimal contact and no problem.
This campground has a convoluted set up for pull-throughs. We had to drive through 32 to pull into 36. If anyone parked in 32 they either had to back out in the morning, leave after us or back in and have utilities on the wrong side. It wasn't rented so maybe that's their solution. Sites are very close. If our neighbor had his awning out, we wouldn't have been able to put out our slide. Nice pool, helpful staff, small trail for hiking. Good for overnight off I-30.
Beautiful destination or overnight park. Has something for everyone. Pool, spa, workout room, library, free DSL lines (4) or wi-fi at a cost. Planned activities, nice long pull-through sites with full hook-ups. Nicest owners you'll ever meet. New park so will be a 10 when the trees mature.
This is a convenient park for Disney. We were met and allowed to view our site before actually going to park. All kinds of sites for all kinds of rigs. Nice pool, small lunch counter, nice staff. We were gone a lot during the day but enjoyed our 10 nights there.
Fine for an overnight stop but pretty noisy this close to the interstate. Sites are a bit narrow. We had to drag the picnic table off the patio to open our slide. They were parking us every other one so it wasn't a possible. Really nice office staff. Nice Passport America park.
This park is a gem. EZ on and off the X-way, EZ in and out the pull through spots. Clean full baths, nice pool, wonderful breakfast. And it's Passport America. Oh to have a nation full of these! I'd give it a 10 if it had a bit more grass and trees.
The graphic artist who designed their rack card is really good. I didn't see anything that looked anything like the pictures shown except for the office building. Garbage was left on our picnic table presumably by the previous night's tenant. It was still there when we left the next day. We asked about the shower house and were told it was locked permanently because people made messes. My husband was instructed to use his own trailer facilities. Most of the sites are permanents and there are only about 6 pull thrus for overnighters. Any longer than that and you would need to have your head examined.
We were here for a rally and the rally sites were too small and too close together. We could barely open our slides and then it was impossible to walk to the rear of our rig. We had to walk to the end of the line to go around. There aren't many bath/shower houses and the rally rooms are locked unless a rally is going on. Then only the wagon master has a key. I'm not sure they rate the Elite RV Resort name they gave themselves.
If you manage to pull in without getting wiped out by someone coming over the hill thank your lucky stars. There are lots of seasonals and the sites that seemed to be saved for travelers are stacked one on top of the other. The deluxe sites ($2 extra) are beautiful and worth the money. They are back-ins. The people are most helpful and most of the residents are very friendly. Its location west of Silver Dollar City keeps you out of the traffic mix but also causes a drive when you attend the shows. I don't think I would stay here again.
This is a great campground to use to tour St. Louis. The Arch is visible right across the river. The park is clean and pretty. There is a playground and small pavilions with grills. The shuttle service to the casino and Metrolink was very dependable. A train track does run right behind the park and the vibration was more evident to us than the noise but was not bothersome. The north side of the park has sites that leave no room for your tow vehicle or toad. Also no grass or trees. The other side is well worth the extra couple of dollars. I'd stay here again.
This was a lovely park with pleasant enough help. There is nothing for children to do but for retirees was nice enough. Easy access into sites. Free coffee in the morning. Clip clop of horses and carriages offset the traffic noise. Very convenient to Shipshewana, Elkhart, Nappanee, Middlebury, etc. We would camp here again when visiting the area.
This is an Oakland County, MI park about 40 miles north of Detroit, west of Flint. Four different "rings" of sites with different pads, electric and allowed sizes are available. We stayed on a concrete pad with concrete patio and had 30 amp plus water. Lots of shade trees in this circle. Nice size sites. There are 2 parking spots for each camp site. Residents and senior citizens receive a discount. Fishing, swimming beach, entertainment on weekends. No reservations but if you arrive by Thursday there is usually no problem getting a spot. Once a week honey wagon but at $10 PER TANK! Also, showers are very large but cost a quarter for 5 minutes.
This is a nice shady park with level back-in sites. The bathhouse and laundry are great. No pets were allowed when we were here. The gentleman showed us a site and we requested the one next to it. There was no problem and he helped us back right in. The 30/50 amp is still a problem. If 50 is taken, you're stuck with 30 but we haven't had any problem with the A/C, appliances running on 30 so far and it is in the 80s.
We reserved a grassy, level site 42 x 45 feet based on the reservation service description. Upon arrival we asked if we would have a problem with a rig our size. We were assured that big rigs use the park all the time with no problems. Our site was a patch of earth with sparse grass and what appeared to be a gravel pad. We backed in and were so unlevel our bubble was clear at the end of the level. Jockeying a little forward and a little backward failed to budge the bubble. My husband decided to just pull out and go back to the front gate. In no time we were hubcap deep in sand. The "gravel pad" was a thin layer of pea gravel over sand. To avoid making a bad situation worse, we talked to the Camp Host who sent a Dept. of Natural Resources guy to help us. He brought a shovel and boards. His comment was that we weren't in bad and he would have us out in no time. He layed two boards end to end after shoveling a bit. When my husband pulled forward as instructed the last board shot backward and bent the front bottom cap portion of our 5th wheel all to heck. They said they had no other sites except one that was "worse" than the one we were on so we requested a refund and insurance information. They refunded $29 for the entrance fee required and all but $8 of our prepaid reservation. They said that was a non-refundable fee. The DNR guy did help my husband secure the front cap of the RV so we could proceed to a commercial campground. The gentleman who led us to our site there said he had the same thing happen at the park and had to pay $150 to a wrecker to get him out. He said it happens all the time. My advice is don't go there unless you have a pop-up or tent. Compared to the Ohio State Park we had just left, this place was a dump. No more Michigan State Parks for us.l
This campground is convenient to Cincinnati, Ohio and Lawrenceburg, Indiana. It sits on the state line. Back-in lake spots and pull-thru sites in front, seasonals in back around the lake. Private clean showers. Free honey wagon once a week. Helpful staff. We use this each year to visit family. Not much else in the area to choose from so we're grateful it's there.
The front row pull thrus are too short for all but the shortest rigs and the utilities are located in the front. So don't plan on pulling in overnight and staying hooked up. The back-ins are plenty long for that though. Nice complex with helpful staff. Lodge restaurant has excellent food. Museum at the complex and the one next door are both worthwhile.
This park barely meets "big rig friendly" criteria. With a single lane road and ditches on either side in places, it can be a challenge to get in your spot. Backing down 110 feet can be also. Beautiful park and lake. Only one shower house and one bathroom. Unless you're close by, be prepared to walk far or drive.
This park is great for overnight or to visit Memphis. Very long pull through sites with a concrete pad for your rig sit right on the levy with a view of the Mississippi. Private baths and FREE laundry make it a best buy. Lots of overnighters so call for a reservation.
Road up hill to park is paved and plenty wide, not a problem. Back-in sites provide great views and are very wide. Pull throughs are saved for overnighters and the end ones have a drop off that I'd rather not pull my rig down. You are 6 miles to milk and bread, 15 miles to more. Water tastes great!
This is a typical KOA, expensive for what you get. If you are traveling from the south it is confusing to find since it sits on the state line. Follow signs to I-30/Dallas and you end up west of it, I-30/Little Rock and you are east of it. If you are in row A you have to do a trip through the park with some tight, though manageable turns, to come back to it. OK for an overnight stop.
