If you're looking to get away from it all, then you will be happy here. Nice little park, with pool, trees, store/clubhouse, cabins, and fishing stream. We were not too excited by the 4 mile gravel road you take to get here. There is no TV, ATT cellphones DO NOT WORK, but was told that Verizon does. The Wi-Fi worked for my wife, but not for my computer (I rarely experience this problem). We came here for the Camping World promo, and sat through the presentation. Not too high-pressure on the sales pitch, and we got to stay free, and received a gift card for our time. We would not stay here again, because of the gravel road.

Okay, we had read reviews that sounded better than this campground turned out to be. Can you say "Terrible?" Well, not that bad, but the Wi-Fi was non-existent, and the manager had no idea if it was broken or not. There was zero TV, even though there was a hookup on the ped, and no showers, restrooms, or pool, unless you count the facilities over at the hotel, which I'm not sure you're allowed to use. There are no comps, or freeplay for the casino given anymore. And all in all, I found the $20 a little steep. Pretty much just a place to park, with hookups, that was off to one corner of the property. The sites were in need of repair and attention, and it looked as if nobody really cared. Bummer, I was hoping for better. The buffet at the hotel made us sick, and the casino was too smokey. We will probably not stay here again.

This is a nice park close to Kansas City, but not too close. Wal-Mart is about 15 minutes away. Very clean, with lots of trees and shade. Pool and store are up front, and the store stocks lots of items for your rig, as well as plenty of food and drinks. Staff was super-friendly, and helpful. Wi-Fi was good, and the hookups well-placed. The laundry was okay, but the dryers were a little on the cool side. Plenty of fishing at the park, as well as nearby. We would definitely stay here again.

Park has continued to improve since our last visit in December. Almost all sites are now concrete pads or level crushed stone and the recently installed new wi-fi system is fast and reliable. The previous reviewer mentioned the area approaching the park but do not let that put you off. We have always found the park conducive to a pleasant stay, and this time was no exception. The owner is very accommodating and helpful and the park is great value for money.

A great little park - have stayed here several times - which is easily the best value for money park in Tyler. (Our rate of $14 is Passport America). We did not have any problems with our 40' motorhome on the access roads. Free cable and Wi-Fi were excellent and restrooms and showers were clean. The owner is making many improvements including more sites, concrete pads, shade shelters over some sites and a rec. room. We would definitely stay here again.

This park is nothing more than a large gravel lot, with hook-ups, and a smattering of small trees. However, it is next to the fairgrounds, and I imagine, that when the fair is running, it is perfect for people that are working, or showing something at the fair. It was only $12.50 a night, with Good Sam. Staff was friendly, and let us pick our site. Worked well for our overnight. We would try to find another town to stay at, but if in Santa Rosa again for the night, we would stay here again.

Okay park. I wouldn't call it a "Resort", but it worked for our stay. Not a lot of shade, and if it was full, it would have been cramped. Strange layout with pull-through sites running front to back in a line to form rows. Nice staff, and the Wi-Fi worked good. Full hookup worked fine. For the price, it was acceptable. We would stay here again.

Beautiful park right near the beach. Pretty crowded, but it was just after Labor day, and the kids were still out of school. Not huge sites, but lots of trees, so there is some privacy. Everyone was nice and friendly. Clean facilities and grounds. We would stay here again.

This is a great park. Very primitive forest area, and absolutely beautiful! We pulled in on Labor Day, and the sites were all pretty full, with lots of kids and families. By the next afternoon, the park was deserted, and we had a very peaceful stay. Close to Mt. Rainier, and St. Helens, and the little town of Morton just west of the park, has all the shopping needs and Wi-Fi available. Caught a few salmon from the fishing bridge at the lake. All the blackberries you can pick in the summer. Nice large sites, and LOTS of trees. We would stay here again.

We really enjoyed this park. The RV park area is set off from the golf course and other homesites, and has it's own clubhouse and amenities. It is kept very clean and tidy. There are alot of rules, but none that are over-the-top, as one reviewer wrote. In fact, you are allowed to wash your vehicles at your site, which I've found to be a very rare allowance. There is a nice lake on the property, that I fished in, and enjoyed very much. The residents that own their sites are all very nice, and made us feel welcome and included in all activities. We stayed here for a week, to take a break from our around-the-country trip of one and two night stays along the route. The one and only drawback that we found, was the lack of cell phone service in the area. There is free Wi-Fi at the clubhouse though, as well as a landline phone for free use of local and toll-free calls. Clubhouse has a large-screen TV with cable, a heated outdoor pool and jacuzzi, a workout room, showers, full kitchen, and meeting area that everyone is free to use. The golf course has all the usual amenities, as well as a bar and restaurant. Nice area, and away from the crowds at Lake Coeur d'Alene. We would stay here again.

We really liked this park. We used it as a base for Yellowstone. It was very reasonable, and the lake was very picturesque. The only drawback, was there was no sewer, but we see this more often than not, at all state parks. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Sites are fairly level, and the park is kept clean. We would stay here again.

This park was just an overnight stop for us, but overnight turned out to be long enough. There's nothing here but a horseshoe pattern of RV sites at a field next to the freeway. When I checked in, I was given the option of paying by credit card for a higher rate than the cash price. I don't like when gas stations do this, and I don't like it when campgrounds do it either. This should be a merchant service, with the fee absorbed by the owner, not me! It was late when I checked in, and had been driving all day, and when I parked in our site, my driver's side wheels were off in the grassy/weedy edge area by about 16 inches. The next morning I was greeted by the owner, chastising me like I was 5 years old, and had walked through his flowerbed or something. I apologized not less than 5 times to his face, but he would not accept my apology, instead he just kept at it saying, "How unneccessary it was" that I parked on his weedy grassy edge next to the power hook-up. This was first thing in the morning mind you, and my wife was awakened up by him yelling at me outside our rig. She awoke, and asked what the matter was, and I told him that I was yelled at for parking on the grass. She was very surprised and unnerved at this, and we decided to just get out of here, without our usual morning routines. I would not ever stay here again. Ever.

The prairies of South Dakota are a windy and desolate place. Wall and this campground are no exception. I gave it a 7, because the water, power, and sewer were functional. The laundry was ok, but expensive. The fishing pond was covered over by algae. Very little shade. Gravel drives and pads, but fairly level. Wi-Fi worked ok. Would not stay in Wall again, but if forced to, I would stay at this campground again.

This park is right on the Missouri River/Lakes area, and has a great view. Park campers are allowed to use all the amenities at the local resort hotel, which was great!!! Has indoor/outdoor pools, a restaurant, free Wi-Fi, lobby and TV's and a business center. Sites are large, and have full-hookups. Staff was very nice and helpful. We would stay here again.

We liked this park. It was inexpensive, and in a good location for our needs. It's on the river, and the sites are large and shady. No sewer at our site, but for 2 nights, it worked out. Wi-Fi was good. Friendly staff. Kids area and pool, but not too crowded. We would stay here again.

Rate is PPA. Lots of kids, but if you have them, there's lots to do. Connections were poorly planned, and most hookups are in the wrong location. Fishing lake is just a stagnant pool of water in a field. Lots of permanent residents. This is a family themed park, with arcades, movies, outdoor areas, and pool. No Wi-Fi, except a pay log-in that we did not use. We would probably look for another park if in the area again, but was ok for a night.

The lack of amenities at this park, is overcome by the magnificent views of the lake. Wi-Fi is erratic, and only worked 50% of the time. There is a newer shower building, but we were closer to the older one, that was in need of upgrades. Sites were ok size, but the larger ones with sewer were full, but we dumped on the way out, and the dump station was fairly convenient. Good location for Munising, and Pictured Rocks. We would stay here again.

Rate reflects Good Sam. This was a accidental stay, as we left our original campground for lack of services, and needed a quick solution nearby to Cedar Point. The sites are a bit unlevel and dirt. There are lots of trees and most sites a shady. The staff was very nice and knowledgeable of the area. They had a good laundry and we had a full hookup. We would stay here again.

Well, I wasn't too impressed. It's a rather large park, but it's rather like a bunch of fields with small sites, and very few trees in the camping area to shade the sites. When we arrived, we just had strange vibes. When we got to our site, we were disappointed, because we thought we had a full hookup, but we not only had no sewer, but no water as well. We had all tanks dry, and had to leave and stay at another nearby campground. We would not stay here again.

Rate reflects Passport America rate. We had doubts about this park because of earlier reviews, but we actually liked it. There is a line of big rigs up front, that get packed very close together, but if you can get one of the spots in the back, the sites are nice and shady, and we were one of only two rigs. It's convenient to visit the falls, which is what we were after. We would stay here again.

There were a lot of permanent residents here. Rate reflects PPA discount. I'm not sure what it was, but I just felt like an outsider here, and if you had kids, there would be absolutely nothing for them to do. No internet. The office was turned into a storage room, so there's not even any local info brochures available. There is a nice dock into the water, but it's down a very steep length of steps, so you can walk down and view the water, and fish off the dock, but there's no boat launch, not even a canoe, too steep. I would try to find another park if I was in the area again, but for fifteen bucks, it worked as an overnight.

This is a very big park, with a lot of activities at the park, and close by. Rate reflects PPA. There are a lot of permanent residents that have bought their sites, that seem to have the attitude that the RV'rs are intruding or something: I just ignored them. We made our reservations nearly 3 months ahead, and were given a site # with our confirmation e-mail, however, when we showed up, they had given our pull-through site to a full-time resident, and assigned us a back-in with the electric hook-up nearly 50 feet away. It was after hours, and with no way of contacting anyone, we just searched around, and found a spot we liked, and took it instead. the next day, they were a little put out that we had done that, but in the end, they appologized for the mix-up, and let us stay where we were. Laundry was good. Wi-Fi was adequate. We would stay here again.

Rate reflects Good Sam rate. We loved it here. Very nice park, with average sized sites, but the park and the surrounding area is magnificent. The owners work at the park, and take a lot of pride in everything, and it shows. They were very helpful and nice about everything. Walking trails were wonderful. Excellent drinking water at the sites. Wi-Fi was intermittent, but was okay. Lots of things for the kids, if you have them. We would definitely stay here again.

Not too excited about our stay here. Typical east coast attitude by the staff. Acted as if any problems I had with my stay was an impostition. Pay showers that did not work when I put my money in. Very tight spaces: seemed as if they tried very hard to get as many spots on their property, without consideration of the comfort of the guests. No sewer, but we knew that going in. Dump station was very hard to get to on our way out. Laundry was very expensive, so we did not use it. When I asked for a map of the local area, they said, "yeah, right over there," which was a stack of maps that looked like the local state park printed up, and they wanted money for those as well. Guests were mostly from the city, and were not very friendly. The only redeeming quality, was that North Truro is a very beautiful area. We would not stay here again.

You've read about the potholes, and they are pretty bad, but overall, it's a pretty nice campground. Widely spaced sites, and a small pond on the property that yielded a 2 1/2 lb bass on the first cast on my fly-rod. No wi-fi, but I could tether. No sewer, but they had dump-stations. It was very close to town, and that's why we were there. Old Mystic is very beautiful, with lots of history, and waterfront shops, and boats, etc. YES, there is a for-real Mystic Pizza. A little pricey, but that's due to the area. We would stay here again.

This was a nice park, and the sites were average size, but the entire park is spread out nicely in the hillside and hilltop. The wi-fi was the fastest we've had, and was free. They had a pool, but we didn't use it, although there were plenty of kids that were. We stayed here because we had friends in the city, but didn't want to be too close to the traffic. The location worked well, and it's about 1-2 hrs. drive in, depending on where you're going. The only drawback, was the steep road that went up to the upper sites. We would stay here again.

This is a beautiful state park that's right off the interstate, but far enough away, that it's perfectly quiet. There's a big lake, and a path that winds around it. I didn't get to go fishing, because it was just an overnight, but I'm sure the fishing was good by the look of it. There was a big water park on the other side of the lake that looked fun. No wi-fi, but I was able to tether my laptop. Would have liked to stay longer. We would stay here again.

This is a well-equipped campground with all the amenities you could want. It was busy, but not packed, and there were walking trails in the woods, and a fenced doggy park that was nice. There was free wi-fi, but it was very slow. My wife wanted to go down the water slide, but they charged a fee for that, so she didn't want to spend the money. For $45 a night, it would have been nice if it was free, but whatever. The staff was nice, and the park was very clean. We would stay here again for a night or two, but any more than that, and the cost would make me search elsewhere. Close to Williamsburg, and all the tourist stuff.

This was a nice campground in an ideal location, if you want to explore Hatteras island. The spots are spaced fairly wide, and it's a smaller park, with quite a few full-time residents. The laundry was clean, and the staff was nice. The only negatives, are no wi-fi, and we were roused from our sleep at around 2:30 in the morning by an emergency alert siren that went off for about a minute. We didn't know if the country was under attack, or if it was last call for the local bars. We asked in the office the next day, and she told us it was for the fire station next door, and there must have been a car accident or something. It was pretty alarming, but what can you do? We would stay here again. Rate reflects PPA discount.

This is a well-run state park, with a lot of facilities. All of the sites seem shady, and are fairly close together. We stayed here in the summer, and nearly all the sites were full. That being said, it was still relatively clean. There is a beach in the park, and it was very nice, with showers and restrooms close by. The only real issue, was that the park sits at the southeastern end of Myrtle Beach Intl. Airport, and the usual traffic pattern has the jets landing right over your head. The planes start at about 6:00 am, and continue through 10:30-11:00 pm. There are very few sites with sewer hookups, but they have a dump station. We were here for 3 nights, and enjoyed our stay. We would stay here again.

The Wi-Fi was strong and fast. The laundry was fine. There was a small pond, but I did not throw my line in. The staff was friendly, and kept the park nice. The location was perfect, as we went to the Okefenokee swamp, Fernandina beach, and Cumberland Island. We had a nice pull-thru site with concrete pad, table, and fire-ring. No complaints whatsoever. We would definitely stay here again.

This was just an overnight stop, but I did get a chance to fly-fish at the park pond. The fish were biting, and it's catch-and-release. There were a couple things that bothered me about the park. 1. The water from the hookup smells like rotten eggs. 2. The local sheriff was placing one of the residents under arrest when I was over at the pond. 3. The grass sites could use a mowing. Otherwise, it was ok for 1 night. The laundry was good, but expensive, and the Wi-Fi was strong and fast. The roads among the sites are a bit narrow. I would probably look for another place, if I ever return to this area.

We used this park as an overnight stop. It has a lot of trails, and things to do, but we were short on time. We did bike the 3 mile loop trail, that has the lookout tower on it, and it was quite nice. No sewer hookups, but we dumped at the dump station on our way out. It was raining when we showed up, so we got a lot of dirt and leaves in our rig, but that was not unnexpected. The sites are all very shady, and the staff was very helpful. The one thing we noticed, was that the roads are pretty narrow. My birdwatching wife spotted 3 birds she hadn't seen before. We would stay here again.

We stayed here in the middle of the BP oil spill, and the volunteers were using the marina as a staging area. I could easily have given this park a 10, if the grassy areas were kept mowed, and the marina wasn't occupied by all the oil workers equipment and boats. The park was in a great location for us, and we spent a morning over at St. George Island, and went swimming at one of the beaches. It was a 20 minute drive over to the island, and there is a lot of shops, and things to do, if you go. There was hardly anybody at the park, so it was very nice and quiet. We didn't see anybody to check us in, and the owner finally showed up the morning we were leaving, to ask for some money. We would stay here again.

The rate reflects the Passport America rate. This is a nice park that is fairly new. They are adding concrete pads, and there are some that are finished. The Wi-Fi was fast, and worked well. The laundry is the best we've seen, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Given, time, the trees will mature, and there will be shaded spots, but not yet. Kind of a remote location, but worked well for our overnight, between New Orleans, and the Florida panhandle. We would stay here again.

This is a nice park in a beautiful area. Lots of plantation history in the park and the surrounding area. Very relaxed atmosphere, and the owner was very friendly and casual. Quite a few full-timers, but they were not seedy, like you find at some parks. It took us an hour to get into New Orleans, not 20 minutes like the web site says. There is a nice pool, and the grounds are well-maintained. The Wi-Fi worked the first night, but was down the second. When we asked for a receipt, all we got was a scribbled note on a generic receipt form from an office-supply store. We would stay here again.

We stayed here for 5 months this year. Pros - This is a beautiful park, and the staff was very nice. There are lots of trees, and it feels more like a state park than a private business. There are a lot of amenities, and things for the kids to do. Cons - The same washing machine that was broken when we arrived, was still broken 5 months later. The laundry room is filthy most of the time. There are members of the staff that are probably trying to treat you like family, but come off as a bit nosy. The Wi-Fi is worthless - the small amount of time that it actually worked (15%), it was as slow, or slower, than dial-up. The last two months, it didn't work at all, and we had to go into town every day to do our online tasks. We would stay here again.
