A very pleasant campground. Wide, accessible site for our "big rig", helpful staff and close to stores and Natchez Trace info centre.Narrow entrance with a steep ditch off busy 145 can be a surprise and a challenge for a bigrig with a tow if travelling from the south.Turning north out of the campground on departure can also be problematic since you have to occupy both lanes to make the turn and keep out of the ditch and speeding south bound traffic doesn't want to stop for anything. Better to enter from north and leave to the south.

While there's no grass in this park, it's a great place to stop to see "Bill's trailer on a post" and the other sights of Little Rock/North Little Rock .It has become a regular stop for us on our way to and from "The Great White North".

Our pull-through site was so sloped and uneven that it was impossible to level. Initial water was rust-colored. Only positive was that we were able to get satellite reception and had electricity. Some roadway is paved . The gravel roads are very poorly maintained, lots of jolts as you travel them. No lighting to speak of. There's lots of work to be done in this park, and we won't stay there again until we're sure it's in much better shape than it is now.

Narrow roadway and trees can make backing in a "big rig" a little bit of an adventure but patience wins out. Staff are very helpful and the shuttle service to downtown New Orleans is a guided tour on its own. We agree with another reviewer's comments about following the campground's directions I-10 exit 223 and Williams Blvd ... there is an easy left turn off Jefferson Avenue into the campground. We will definitely stay here when we return to New Orleans.

Easy access from/to I-10 and very hospitable managers made our week-long stay at this park very enjoyable. A Thanksgiving potluck dinner prepared and hosted by the managers simply added to our enjoyment. The park offers good-sized pull-through sites and all services worked well during our stay. Neighboring truck stop would have made refueling convenient had we needed to do so. The noise from the truck stop is the only negative for this campground and might bother lighter sleepers.

An excellent campground. Entrance is very helpfully marked with flags and we found that helpful approach to be reflected in every conversation we had with the managers. All hook-ups worked perfectly during our one-week stay . We'll make it a point to stay at this park if we visit Shreveport again. If you visit make sure to see the Norton Gallery.

A great campground to use as a base to see Little Rock. Except when rain makes the sites' gravel base a mess. Sites are organized in staggered reverse order, can make for a pretty cozy relationship with your neighbor. It has a single purpose and fills it well.

A spacious campground . All back in sites and sewer location at very back of site can make sewer hook-up a "stretch". Cable TV is erratic and at times useless. Directions recommended by managers can result in troublesome turns and "low bridge" issues for longer and higher motor homes/fifth wheels . If we visit the campground again we'll take Noland Road off I-70 ,approach the campground off Walnut and Pleasant Streets and enter the campground off Pleasant.

We have spent several very pleasant winters at Crystal Lake, with its great facilities and hospitable residents (both owners and renters like ourselves). The enjoyment we experienced was in no small measure due to the reliable, helpful, friendly attitude of the then rental managers who were replaced this past spring. The new regime displayed a level of incompetence in handling our reservation request for 2011/12 so we have made reservations elsewhere. A lot purchase would also not be in the cards.

Would rate this campground higher if cable TV and Wi-Fi quality were acceptable: they aren't. Great location for visiting Charleston with dirt sites (making for lots of grit in the motorhome), well-located services, pet-friendly facilities and very helpful staff. Our site had reasonable space for our "big rig."

A rustic campground that, for the most part, is pitch black at night and needs some lighting. Also needs some warning posted that the campground entry is almost hidden on a corner. Sites can be tight for a big rig. Services are OK and the campground is convenient for visiting Asheville. Staff are accommodating and helpful.

One of the nicer campgrounds we've stayed at. Wide, level site with easy access. A bluegrass jam session on Thursday night made our stay even more enjoyable. Only negative is the narrow entry road with deep ditches on either side. The campground is on a very busy single lane road and, to avoid "hitting the ditch" you have to take up both lanes of the busy road when leaving. There's lots of evidence that others have scraped bottom when leaving. Overall a very nice campground with very helpful staff and a good level of services.

Very convenient access to historic sites at Independence. Coming from North, manager's directions take you through town along route 24 ( Truman Ave.). There's a low bridge ( 13' 10") on this route, and for big rigs, a right turn that requires you to take up the whole street you're turning onto. Overall a pleasant older park with lots of dog walk space, good level of services and a park we'll visit again. Much easier access from I-70.

You have to hold your motorhome and tow on an uphill slope to check into this campground and getting to your site can be a bit of a challenge to avoid hitting trees. We spent an hour trying to level our motorhome before giving up. Thankfully our stay was brief. Exiting the park could be facilitated with some minor maintenance. Proper culverts insted of ditches and chunks of concrete on the narrow access ramps. Only that really bad KOA at Butte, Montana is worse than this one. We won't stay here again.

Good access. Helpful,pleasant staff. Our site had plenty of space for slides and tow vehicle . The park provides regular evening entertainment...a nice touch which added to our enjoyment of our week at Nashville. The park is very close to Opryland. We will definitely visit Nashville again and this park will be our first choice. Good value in comparison to other parks we've stayed at

A rustic campground with dirt sites but very convenient access to Savannah. Very helpful staff. Beware of low-hanging electrical lines: our CB antenna would have contacted them during departure. We left using the entrance road to avoid this hazard. Apparently other customers have brought this hazard to the staff's attention.

Although sites are relatively small this is a good park with very good access to Washington. Staff are pleasant and helpful. The only negatives during our stay were the crappy weather and the local maniacs behind the wheel.

A very pleasant campground with helpful staff. We had a premium site during our week here. Only issue with the site were the trees made it a little awkward to easily extend our slides and pull-out bays. We'll try to avoid traveling through the town of Branson when we next visit this campground.

We arrived at the campground immediately after a long torrential downpour that left parts of the park looking like lakes, and were pleasantly surprised with how quickly our site dried out. Access is convenient and our site was large enough for our slides and tow vehicle. The fellows in the office certainly did not go to charm school, but the young woman there was very pleasant. Reasonable value.

Excellent campground with very helpful staff: walked our dogs while we did a Black Hills day trip and were very helpful when we had a brief motorhome "issue". Lots of space in the area we were assigned. Signage to the campground could be improved but that's a minor matter. We enjoyed our several days here and will definitely stay here again.

Good directions to the campground from staff. Wide sites and easy site access. Large grassy area and plenty of room to walk our dogs. Hospitable staff. Great view of Mississippi River. Free laundry a bonus. If we're ever back in the area this campground would be our choice.

The entrance to the campground was pretty badly chewed up as a result of construction work arising from a new association with the Hampton Inn next door. There was plenty of room for our 42' rig and tow. The manager was very friendly and helpful. There might be a bit of an odor problem if you're downwind of the open wagon that serves as a dumpster. Overall a good spot for an overnight stay.

Well-maintained campground and good facilities, with exception of the water hook-up which was virtually buried in a ground-level box. Lots of space for our dogs. Good access to Portland and I-84. Staff was a little sparky when we arrived but was pleasant during the rest of our stay. We'd stay there again but will avoid the chaos that passes for highways in the Portland area...probably the worst highway signage we have experienced.

Fairly easy access off I-84. If you're a "big rig" towing, you should unhook before going to your site. Access road is narrow and, when we were there, crowded with parked vehicles. Sites are concrete and park is clean and quiet. Wi-Fi is erratic. No pool or other amenities so it's simply a one-night stop-over park...unless you're there for the rodeo. Some sewer/electrical hook-ups are too close to the access road for ready connection. Staff are pleasant.

On the dusty side, but overall a pleasant campground with friendly staff. Very good dog run facilities. A little on the crowded side, and we had to leave our tow vehicle unhooked when leaving our site: across a street from the "main campground." Given the other choices available at Cheyenne this is the "premier" campground.

A grungy, dusty facility. After confirming 50 amp sites were available when we called about availability of a site, we were told there were none left after we checked in. Another reviewer has described the attitude here as greedy: we fully agree, and will not stay at this campground again. Fortunately we had only booked for one night, and were glad to leave the next day. There is very limited access for "big rigs."

A pleasant,convenient older campground managed by a very hospitable couple. Nothing fancy and a limited capacity for 42' rigs but we'd be happy to stay there again.

We spent a very comfortable, relaxed couple of days here while on our way back home to Calgary after spending 3 weeks in Salt Lake City. We got to attend the County Fair which was being held at the Fairground across the tracks from the park. The lady in charge was very helpful ...made us feel very welcome. We're looking forward to staying there again. A very clean, friendly, comfortable park.

We stayed at this park while attending a conference at Salt Lake City. It has great access to downtown. The site we were provided was fine for our motorhome and tow vehicle. Staff were always helpful and the overall attitude within the park was a very friendly one. There is what should be a very pleasant walking trail along the river behind the park but, unfortunately, some campers who simply will not clean up after their dogs make the path a disgusting, filthy mess. Rubbing their noses in their dogs' "leavings" would be a fitting punishment for these people. We booked a spot for 2008 before leaving.

We spent 2.5 very enjoyable months at this great park. Campers, staff, entertainment and facilities met our every expectation with the single exception of site Wi-Fi unavailability. A strange deficiency for a park of this caliber. However, our air card compensated for this missing ingredient and we will definitely return.

A cramped but clean park. Nice pool. WiFi said to be available but we were never able to access it during our stay. Other campers were very friendly...as we've found in most parks. Pet friendly, which is very important to us. "Resort" is a stretch, but if we are looking for a place at Port St. Lucie again we'd consider it.

Attractive small park: beautifully landscaped. Limited space for big rigs. Pull in area to register can accommodate only one big rig towing a vehicle and there is not designated area to unhook tow vehicle. Pleasant office staff suggested we pull through the gate and stop further down the road to unhook. This we did, leaving our tow vehicle at the side of the narrow roadway. We proceeded to the assigned site with our rig to find it was occupied so backed into the site beside the one we were assigned and called the office. We had been given the wrong site number and were advised to proceed to the correct site. Prior to doing this we moved our tow vehicle into a vacant site so we would not continue to obstruct the narrow roadway in the event another camper was trying to navigate. With some difficulty we did manage to get our 42' rig turned around so we could back into the correct site. We then walked back to move our tow vehicle only to be approached by one of the "Managers" who (in the best words I can use to describe) told us in a very snotty tone that we could not park our vehicle in the spot we were in. We explained that we had been given a wrong site number and had only placed the vehicle in the spot temporarily out of consideration of other campers who might be arriving. The manager continued to tell us we couldn't park there and we couldn't leave the vehicle at the side of the road either. Don't know what we were supposed to do with the tow vehicle while we backed our rig into the site! This was definitely unnecessary stress in addition to the site fiasco. The other manager later came to our coach and further belabored the mix up until we showed him the map we were given with the incorrect site number circled. He also asked to see the vaccination records for our dogs as he commented that a couple of residents had already been bitten by "Canadian" dogs! We were definitely getting the message that Canadians were not welcome here. Following these events we observed the people in the park and really have to say they did not seem to be very happy or friendly. This seemed to be a strange observation as our 5 months in Florida campgrounds: Naples and Fort St. Lucie, have been wonderful experiences. Absolutely great, friendly people whether campers, campground managers or staff. I do hope Emerald Coast RV Beach Resort is the only blemish on our trip. We definitely will not come back and will definitely pass the word to all we meet.
