Ditto with other reviews. I might add that I think one of the dogs is a rottweiler and they all run loose. This is definitely a desperation stop. I don't think there is a Wal-Mart near.

I have a hard time understanding the critics. Maybe because we were in the first row. Nice grass, easy hookups, level, nice small fruit trees that were in bloom. The store is very nice. We were just overnighters but there were other parks in the general area. Don't know about them. I would sure stay here again.

No grass: this is an old military camp site and does have covered patios for most sites. Not much else to say about it. Easy in and out.

This is an old subdivision, probably late 40's. ALL the houses are gone. What's left are driveways and some concrete curbs. The result is large sites but no amenities. ONE shower/restroom (very clean). Nothing here, but my DW, 2 pups and I are on our way to somewhere and it's fine for overnight.

Nice park but too much money. No discounts. Lots of small sites for camper rigs. Reasonably close to King's Island. Most sites are flat and hard. Plenty of open space. Our site was at the back edge and we had good WiFi. Only a few sites that can accommodate big rigs like ours. Roads are narrow, there are lots of children, and lots of people having fun. Hard to find a place North of Cinci. We would stay here again.

Rate reflects Campground USA and Good Sam. Blacktop roads. Lots of room in a pull through for our 40 footer. Staying here about 5 days, have stayed before. No organized activities, but we were taking a couple of grandchildren to DollyWood and could not ask for a better location. Less than a mile from all the action, but very peaceful. This is a great place to stay to see Pigeon Forge.

Campground USA rate. The place does not need a facelift it needs a bulldozer. Given that, the restrooms are better than a lot I have seen. The sites are crushed stone, level and roomy, the grass lush, and it's quiet. The buildings and staff alike need to be replaced. We do not need to leave our coach for anything, so for an overnight stop it does work.

Heavy gravel, flat sites with very nice grass surrounding them. Staff is very nice, the store is better than average. They have a permanent resident who will let your pets out once or twice while you are sightseeing, for only $5.00. We only stayed here for the night but there seems to be a lot to do in the area and if we were not on the clock we would stay here for a few days.

Would have rated more but the sites were heavy with dirt, it rained while we were here and yes there was mud. Has a very nice pool even a kiddy pool. Big grocery store is about two miles away. Yes, the metro/subway is easy to use and the way to go to DC. Snack bar/store was not much. Wonder of wonders: the staff will let your pet out once or twice while you are out sightseeing. More camps need to do this.

Nice place. A couple of fishing ponds and a beach. A big mowed field for ball games or whatever. Trails to walk, good road to get there but must be careful to turn the right way. Interior roads are blacktop and crushed stone. Most pads are a little narrow and large crushed stone. Overall sites are very wide and several face each other so you can share a lawn with a friend you are traveling with or a good place to plan a get-together. I would not mind spending a few days here to decompress.

Camp Club rate. Flat sites easy in and out. Next to freeway but no noise problem. Easy to get to. Has a pool and a water park next door. The kids would love it in summer. Good place to stop.

Flat muddy, dirt and grass. Office locked, self registered, never saw any staff. Yes the road to it was bad. Very narrow and partly washed out in a few areas. Sites were flat and there was the appearance of renting canoes in season, I think. Other wise the place had nothing to offer and I would pass on it next time I am in the area.

Low rate mainly because of high price. We stayed the next night at a much nicer park at half the price. We found dirt roads, mud, and few amenities. I would look for another location when we come this way again.

Must be near to a hundred activities available. From a garden railroad to bike clubs, golf, hiking and a couple of dozen crafts rooms, you can use even two computer rooms: Apple and PC. If for some strange reason you get bored on campus, there is a ton to do in the Mesa, Apache Junction, and Phoenix area. It is an over 55 community with lots of room for us transients. Like a playground for Seniors. We stayed for 6 weeks and plan to return.

More like a small rest stop on the edge of the road, but very clean with friendly and proud staff. It's an overnight stop and does a fine job of being that.

Nothing special, but this time of year and just passing through, it's hard to tell. Used Good Sam discount. Park has pleasant staff. I'd stay here again.

We threw away $50 here because we were in the area and stopped by more than a week before our reservations. We canceled by phone the next day and in spite of the week notice they would not return our deposit. All spaces are very tight and you better stay on the road and pads. Upon driving through we saw several sites where rigs had sunk in the mud two feet off the pad. Makes parking even harder. You are greeted by a couple of junk rigs and when you drive around you see several others that belong in the same pile. I would not stay here on a bet. We went 3 miles down the road and stayed at another campground. WE DID NOT STAY AT THIS PARK.

Good Sam rate. This is an old park, most sites are full time and OLD rigs with park models and "permanent" trailers. But what the heck, I don't intend to live here. Flat blacktop sites with plenty of room, good water pressure lots of channels on the cable, friendly staff, and, immediately across the street from Silver Spring and a water park. You walk there and save $7 for parking. Good idea -spend the night, spend the day at the park, spend another night and be on your way. I would not stay here long term, but for a few nights it's fine.

Not as many activities as the big resorts in Mesa, but there is plenty to do with the Ocean just across the street and several shopping centers both modern and Arts and Crafts zones within just a few miles. Our rate was based on a monthly rate from an owner. The company charges a 50% comission on properties that they rent. Try calling the Rec center at 772-229-1650. All blacktop roads as well as a marina for large boats. Enjoyed our stay here.

Just stopped for overnight, very unusual arrangement for overnighters, they park you in a row, head to tail like a parade of elephants, but we had no trouble getting out in the morning. The longer termers are in a separate area. They helped us set up and seem to be open year round, a plus for us late leavers from the land of ice and snow.

Looks like it would be fun in the summer, big lake. Lots of seasonals. Camp is run by the Corp of Engineers, they have some of their own rules. Our site was not flat but we made due. If I had a boat I would spend some time here. All interior roads are blacktop, the place looks clean and has 24 hour on site security.

It is a mess, a lot of old messy seasonals, would not stay here but fine for a nights stop. No level sites, stayed in one of six pull thru spots. I would stop again but only as an overnight on the way to someplace nice.

This is the old Cincinnati South KOA. Another KOA that has gone Good Sam. Staff is friendly and helpful. Highway on one side Train track on the other. Leave a vent fan or AC on and it should not bother you. While it is clean, the camp needs a little TLC. We should see what the next few years bring.

It's close to Graceland. That's about all you can say for it. It's dirty, cramped, lumpy, etc. We were given two sites as were the folks next to us. The rig on one site and the tow on the other, not enough room on one site for both. It was late and we did not know our way around. Stay somewhere else if you can. P.S. I think I just heard someone empty the clip on a handgun.

Another good park with nothing special except a sauna. Our site was a little narrow but we were here for only one night. Would stop here again if we were in the area.

55+ park. Stayed here about 3 weeks, very comfortable. Lots of amenities including separate workrooms for a dozen crafts, including a super size wood working shop, and a garden railroad to work on. No camp store, which surprised me, not even a snack vending machine. They except Campground USA, and Passport America, so the first couple of weeks are half price. Again no grass but lots of park models that are well landscaped. We found ourselves welcomed and had a great time at bingo and the dances and on site craft shows. Would definitely stay here again, perhaps next year.

Not really for kids, nothing for them to do. Fantastic view, great sites, only 10 or 12 miles from Tombstone. No grass, typical for the area, grass won't grow. Great staff. It cost us an extra $3 a day for electric, (we have a washer-dryer). You only pay for what you use, makes sense to me. We would absolutely stay here again. In fact we extended our stay a couple of days just to hang out.

We stayed here because we had relatives nearby. No special features, except for the view. Wide flat sites, full hookups, clean. They pick up the trash every day, all day. Not a blade of grass and no frills. But the view of the mountains is beautiful. Nothing for kids to do and you don't want to sit out due to the sand and winds. We stayed here 3 days in a 40' motor home and had more than enough room. Get off at exit 10 from I-10, continue north on the service road.

Very attractive park. Has a small cafe that serves good food. Very nice staff. Pool looked good to us. Good size sites. Would have stayed longer but not much to do in town. Lots of big rigs.

Grass is a bit long but they have to do that in Texas. Sites are gravel and ours was not very level. I would suggest low numbered lots. The higher the number the farther back and the older the rigs. Lots of long termers --normal with many large parks. Serious long timers are in back behind a security fence, I'm not sure if the fence is to protect them from the noise of us transients (very little noise) or us from the sight of some of those rigs. Well worth the drive through. Would not stay here again except for the fact that is is close to our friends' house.

Concrete pads, restrooms and such are in the attached motel, what we saw of that was very nice and clean. We just got our 40 foot MH with a Grand Cherokee on the site. No fun here for kids but for overnight or a base of operations it would be fine. We only stayed overnight.

I don't give 10's, no one, including me is perfect. This place is great. Two gathering areas, a 20+ acre lake, small pool. It is not a park to spend a vacation because of the small sites. Cement pads eliminate mud and mess. If you want to hold a barbeque at your site, or have a beer party, and make a lot of noise then this is not the place for you. The rules are normal and it does make a great base from which to go to all the local events and attractions.

This is a small park with few amenities but it has wide dust free interior roads and all sites have cement pads. It is well kept with friendly staff. Very nice hookup stations with TV cable at each site. We only stayed for one night and would stay again. We were South bound on 59/20.

Park has an additional 50 tent sites. Sites are a little tight but being on top of a hill and right in town make up for a lot of that kind of thing. Tent sites are really in the woods. No playground or much of anything for kids. Little contact with staff. An acceptable park if you don't plan to spend a lot of time sitting around your site. Good stuff, lots of places to go and things to do that are very close by.

Nice sand playground with a "pond" for swimming. All grass sites some with shade. It is near a dragway but we can't hear it from here. They have a Blue Grass festival here in August. Showers are ok, they are showing their age but kept clean. They do have a honey wagon. With just 30 amps and a water hose it's not much of a problem to unhook and dump. I would stay here again, in fact, I will in a week or so.

Camp covers a large area with confusing gravel and dirt roads. Lots of trees with sites tucked in where ever they would fit. Lots of trash laying around, with many old seasonal rigs with add on's and even tarp roofs. Three lakes and two beaches as well as a gravel pit for off road vehicles. One of few camps I have seen that have actual outhouses scattered around the area. Unless you are into rustic I would look elsewhere.

Courtious staff, open area with plenty of trees but easy to get around in. Camp has a nice pool, spa/sauna and lounge. Located about 5 miles north of town they offer hiking trails and lots of cabins. No seasonal campers. All roads and sites are gravel but hard.

(519) 371-1331 Big rigs beware, some of the turns and roads are VERY tight. Lots of trees afford a feeling of seclusion. Lots of tent sites and an entrance to the Bruce Trail. This camp at the base of the Bruce Peninsula is approached by a ride through a farm yard, there is a decent dirt road so don't worry. We'd stay again.

E10102 Hwy M-28 just East of town. (906) 387-3315. Found the staff to be nice, we were camped close to the entrance and it was very dusty. Interior was dirt and gravel some sites looked very lumpy and unlevel. Lots of trees and campers. We would definitely stay here again.

This is just an update. It's still a very nice place to stay. I like to use these reviews for my own reference so I like to include a location and phone number or web site. It is usually wise to call ahead for reservations, even if only a few hours. I did not and was lucky to get the last site. The phone is 810-982-6765.

Yes it is a KOA. Where we were put, the site was grass which is not a good base for a 16 ton Motor home. Across the street, about 200 feet, we discovered a railroad track, and a train, with a horn. The folks on both sides of us had unleashed dogs. One of them left a pile in the grass while the owner was watching, he made no attempt to clean it up. If we come this way again we will keep on going.

Large sites, flat hard gravel pads. Some very large sites, lots of grass. Hosts were very nice, guided us to our site. Everything seemed clean and well kept. It looks like a fairly new campground, not much in trees but I think we may stay here an extra day just to relax.

Good for them, they are holding their prices. Grass a little shabby but with all those trees it can't get much sun. Pool is large and very clean. It works for me.

Tired old park. Clean up would not be enough. We have a 40 foot rig and parked with several other big rigs. Could not use the picnic table unless we pulled in our slideout, then it would still be crowded. Only about 8 feet between sites. Roads and grass not well maintained. I will look for some other place to stay rather than here. This is the first time I would consider Wal-Mart as an alternative.

A city operated park with great hosts, and over an acre of manicured lawn in the center. Cement pads that are level. Great place to stay. Be sure to take your toad on the loop to see the Robidoux Trading post. It's all gravel but takes you through open range where there are cattle on the road. Also, drive, or walk, to the top of Scotts Bluff National Monument. Be nice to stay here for a week or two.

Very convenient to Hwy 83 and town. We stayed here 4 nights. Very friendly staff and were willing to accept mail for us. The sites were large enough for big rigs and were level gravel. Some grass, and clean. Did not use rest rooms or showers. We found it very comfortable and would definitely come again. Try the Whiskey Creek Restaurant, best steak we had in a long time.

Park is about 12 miles South of I-80. They advertize 135 sites, their map shows 65 plus an open field they say will hold more. This is a Mom and Pop operation that has a restaurant that closes at 8:00p.m. a one star motel and a tired Museum/Pioneer Village. We entered our site by driving over the curb of a city street. The place is flat and the grass is cut. It's OK for an overnight stay but not for a vacation. I would avoid staying here again. But then we are self contained and do not have to interface with the park. And I think we had the last full hookup, so they do have business.

7515 Worchester Road NW. Cedar Rapids, IA 52405 (319) 892-6450. Just a few miles West of town. Very quiet with roomy flat sites. Nothing here for kids to do but there is a day area with playground and such about a quarter mile away in the same park. We stayed here to get our generator repaired but would easily return to spend a day or two to just veg-out. Wish they had sewers but the dump station is user friendly.

22811 Swan Lake Dr. Carroll. Big lake with reportedly with big fish. Boats available, small beach. Full service sites are 30 amp and a little tight with no grass. Many semi-isolated sites that are dry or tents are scattered among the hundreds of acres of well kept park. There is a bicycle path around the stocked 150+ acre lake. Buffalo and rescued Bald Eagles are on site along with a pair of Whooping Cranes, and a nature center. I would have given it a higher rating if not for the tightness of the full service area and lack of a camp store. Our 40 footer could have used a little more room and more amps. I would, however, stay here again.

25608 County Rd 4 East. Elkhart 46514. 574-264-2914. They are working at increasing the size to up to 800 sites. We only stayed overnight and it was fine for us. Saw no rule prohibiting the use of washer/dryer, we used ours. It seems close to town and there is a lot to do in Elkhart but we were just passing through.

10359 E. Farrand Rd. Otisville 48463. 810-631-4531. Where else can you get a 50 cent Ice Cream cone, and go on a real horse drawn wagon. Lots of well behaved kids. Overseen by Free Methodists but there is absolutely no religious pressure. You may hear groups singing, or square dancing. Nice beach on a small private lake. NO ALCOHOL. Very nice people and a great place to camp. Our 40 footer fit well. Grasss, shade, building for groups and several pre-planned camp experiences. I would go here often.

Mostly seasonal but very clean and well kept. To give you an idea of size, we were in the new section and it was 1.2 miles from the gate. There are 4 lakes, gravel roads and pads. Good grass and sod. We had no problem with any noise or other disruptions. Pets are kept on leads. Large sites, mostly back-ins. Camp store leaves a lot to be desired, it is small and not well stocked. We would definitely stay here again.

All sites are grass, lots of trees, staff is very accommodating. Great beach with water toys. Laundry and small store. We showed up in a 40 foot MH and they simply could not accommodate us. It's an old camp with lots of mature trees and smaller sites. We would not come here again but only because of our size. It would be a terrific place to go with your kids, seems to be a lot of activities. I am sorry we could fit our rig in, we only stayed for 1 night in a cramped site for our 40 footer.

She's still here. Other than a manager who should not be permitted contact with customers it' a fine Kampground. A few small trees, fewer small children, lots of big rigs. Very clean and well kept, no doubt the rules help this. I've stayed here before and will again. Just be sure that when you park your car it is pointed in the same direction as your rig.

Close to town (2301 Water Street) with flat level sites and lots of grass. Small playground, not great for children because there is little for them to do. Most sites have sewer hookup. Laundry available as well as a clubhouse. Great spot to sit on the grass and read a good book or just relax.
