This is a beautiful park and very well maintained. Staff was great, Verizon worked well, the bugs were bad, the sites were big, you must drive almost 25 miles for food, restaurants, etc., but we loved it and wished we could have stayed much longer.
As others mentioned, this park is located just off a busy freeway and about a mile down a very dusty road. We were tired and decided to stay. We paid, parked, went back to the office to get a refund, and left. While the staff was very accommodating, the RV park is dirty, dirty, dirty. We absolutely could not deal with being covered in dust from those driving too fast through the park and the farmers digging up the fields on all side of us. Lots of road workers which equals a lot of trucks and guys sitting around drinking and smoking. Not our kind of place at all.
The only downside to this park is the dust. They need more gravel on the interior roads. Staff was excellent and eager to please. We were there at the beginning of summer and the mosquitoes were brutal. You are allowed to have campfires. It's a quite park with plenty of shade trees. Laundry room was clean - did not use the showers or restrooms. Good Verizon access. Tea is very small, but does have a grocery store, post office and a couple of pizza places. Major shopping only 10 minutes away.
This is a great family campground, but we don't have children. Loads of kids riding four wheelers constantly throughout the park which means constant motor noise, dust and exhaust. Good interior gravel roads. Some shade trees to shield you from hot sunsets, laundry was clean. There is a small pool, which is very busy. Laundry room was clean. Sites were a little short, but level and everything worked properly. The restrooms and showers are old and smelly. Plus it was super hot in there. We stayed for two weeks and each weekend there was entertainment in the pavilion area. Verizon worked well. This park is just a few miles from Zanesville, but feels like you are out in the country. Mangers live on property and are friendly folks who keep a close eye on their patrons.
The positives... staff is very friends and accommodating and the surrounding area is beautiful. Yes there is water, but it's a canal which you really cannot see from your site as it is surrounded by seasonal campers. All other sites are in the middle. Hook ups are in back and we had to run a hose to an adjacent site for water - weird. The people parked next to us had to drive over our hose. Huge grassy area for electric only and tents. Sites are gravel and not level. Didn't use laundry facility, bathrooms or shower. Verizon was okay, but not strong. Not a lot of anything in the area as far as restaurants or shopping. Geneva is 20 minutes away and is a lovely drive. Signage is not great - we passed this park twice. I would hate to try and find it in the dark! We would stay here again.
Nice park with long level sites; some are paved, most are not. Average width between sites, which is fairly close, but not slide to slide. Grass at each site. Hook ups all worked. Close to railroad tracks and freeway, so a bit noisy. Park is very tidy. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Just passing through for the night - Would definitely stay here again.
Nice park across the street from Lake Michigan. All gravel sites that were level, easy hookups and everything worked. Manager was very accommodating and let us pick our own site. Just spent one night so didn't use any of the park facilities. Would definitely stay again.
This was the only park we found within an hour of Buffalo that had full hookups. The drive to the park is beautiful! All shopping is 15 minutes away in Batavia. Does not have 50 amps and we needed an extension cord to reach the electrical box. Very soft gravel under the RV, but area in front of rig needed a lot more gravel as it was muddy when it rained. Verizon was very sketchy as you are really out in the country. We definitely needed our booster for internet. Lei-Ti is full of seasonal campers and has loads of activities for kids. But, we don't have kids. Security does patrol regularly and quiet hours were enforced. Our area was all dirt with a little gravel. Lots of trees for shade in our area (we were given a site that was originally for a seasonal rig), but noticed that the area close to the entrance for short term stay (maybe six sites) is out in the open. We stayed for two weeks. Staff was very accommodating, but not overly friendly. Would stay again.
Nice park - sites were level - hookups were great - site distance was okay, but our neighbors seemed very close. Roads are all gravel and a bit dusty. Not particularly pretty, but everything worked. There is a small patch of grass at each site so you have a little greenery. Sites are long. Verizon wireless worked very well - wifi only in office area. Laundry was clean, seven washers, but only two dryers and one was broken. Lady doing her wash after me had to wait for over an hour for the dryer. This park is 8 miles from Helena which is where I drove to do grocery shopping. There is a small market just down the street, but is like a large 7-11 with produce. Office personnel was very friendly and easy to work with - we would stay here again.
This park looks okay from the road; all you can see is the office. But after we turned the corner and saw the actual park, we circled around and left. I would have rather taken my chances in the boonies. Mostly filled with old trashy (did I mention trashy) long term trailers; junk, old chairs, old run down cars and trucks everywhere. The interior roads are narrow and super dusty. Sites are narrow. They need a major overhaul. Owner was very nice, but we just couldn't do it.
We chose Ft. Caspar as a Passport America park. Glad we did. It's pretty basic and it's mostly monthly people, but we enjoyed our nightly stay. Not much in the way of shade; it's all gravel, but the sites are totally level. Staff was great and helpful with local restaurants. We would stay here again.
We spent 11 nights at Dakota Ridge. Nothing not to love about this place. It really has everything you need and it's close to all kinds of shopping and restaurants. Staff if very friendly and accommodating. Each site has a cement slab, grass, a table and some sites have shade trees. Sadly our site was in full sun and it was the hottest August on record. The pool is nice, the laundry room is big and clean, there is a pool table, library and lounge area. The grounds are spotless. As mentioned in many other reviews the sites are close together, but we didn't find it to be a reason not to return.
This was our second stay at Chief Hosa. We elected to stay just three days this time as we are not fond us using the "Blue Boys" to empty the tanks. But, at least they were available if you need them! The sites are all dirt which makes for a not so nice site when it rains. Sites are also very narrow. To me this is a true "campground" not an RV park. Lots of tent campers and children. The best part of Chief Hosa is the elevation, which is 7700 feet, so it is much cooler than Denver. Staff is also very accommodating. We would definitely stay again.
This was our third time at Ft. Welikit. We like the tall shade trees and the friendly atmosphere. They were most gracious about letting pick a site and we chose our site based on the length of our rig and circumnavigating trees. All dirt parking and the sites are narrow and uneven. Our particular site site was such that we had to put our chairs in front of our rig instead of near the front door. Picnic table was on a slope and not really usable. Nice playground for kids and it's close to Custer and Mt. Rushmore. Beautiful area which is the reason we will return in the future.
Based on common courtesy this gets an average rating from me. Woman who checked me in was rude to the point that if it wasn't already 7:00 p.m. I would have hit the road. They are no longer a Good Sam Park either. Sites are paved with a back slope. You definitely have to unhook your vehicle for the night. Weeds and junk surrounding the monthly rental sites. In a pinch I would stay here again. Maybe they'll have a different manager next time.
OMG, this park is very busy in the summer - lots of tents and children. They allow the general public to use the lake so that makes it extra busy on weekends. The pool was super crowded as was the laundry, which was outside in the heat and it was exceptionally hot and muggy last July. It's an old, old, old park and needs some TLC. Management was very courteous and helpful. Most of Fish Lake is dedicated to park models - some look great, others should be hauled away. We stayed for two weeks as we were working in the area, but I don't think we'd stay here again just because of all the noise and campfire smoke from the tent campers.
Lazy J is a wonderful place in the middle of nowhere. We arrived unannounced on July 2 - one of their busiest weekends at 8:30 p.m. The owners were in the office trying to help the line of people at the counter as quickly as possible - doing so with efficiency and charm. We were most weary at the end of the day and really didn't know what we'd do if they couldn't find a spot for us. But, they did find a site and quickly got us settled in. The owners take great pride in their park and it shows - everything is in tip-top shape. Someone patrols the park regularly to make sure that the rules are followed, which means quiet time is actually quiet. One downside is the fee. We basically parked and went to bed so for an overnight and since we didn't use any of the amenities we felt it was extravagant. But, if you are on vacation this is the place to go! Also, there is not a sewer hook-up, but three times a week they have a service come by and pump out the black water - and it's free for guests of the park. We were only passing through, but will return again in the future. Maybe we'll be on vacation this time.
Only giving this park a 7 due to bad roads and some sites that are really close together - fortunately, we were not in one of them as management let us pick our own spot (on a very busy 4th of July weekend). We chose a grassy site with lots of room to move about. We chose grass over trees because we were only staying one night. But, there are shaded sites available, which would be good as is HOT and Muggiest in July. Each site has a fire pit and a table. There is a pool, mini golf, a little restaurant for hot dogs & burgers and it seemed that the campers were having a great time. We will stay here again.
Hidden Valley is a no frills kind of place, but most adequate for overnight parking. Lots of well maintained yearly park models and lots of green grass for the other campers. Had everything we needed except sewer. Management was friendly and accommodating. We were just passing through, but would stay here again.
Turning Stone is a beautiful well maintained park. All sites are spacious with a table and fire pit. Lots of shade trees, ducks and fireflies. Management is very helpful and courteous and they let us pick our favorite available spot. I walked the park and checked out the restrooms and showers, which were clean. Laundry room was also spotless with refreshing A/C. We stayed for two weeks and would definitely return again.
Lovely little gem in the middle of nowhere. We were actually looking for another park, but when we passed by Twin Streams we decided to turn around and go back. Glad we did. This place is kept up really well: even the Seasonal Sites were in great shape. The managers were most gracious and let us pick our own spot, based on our needs. We chose a site in the middle of the wide open green grass. I felt like I was in a giant park. A few trees in the middle grassy area which gave us a little shade as the sun was setting. We were just passing through. Wished we could have stayed longer.
As others have mentioned, this is not an RV park: it's a mobile home park that added spaces for RVs. It's not very tidy, but it was adequate for what we wanted: to be close to Frederick. Most RV sites are full of people doing contract work in the area for 4-6 months. All spaces are pull-throughs with concrete pads, which was nice as we got a lot of rain. No shade at all. The manager was very helpful and accommodating and he seems to keep a close eye on the park. Lots of restaurants and shopping close by. And while it's not an RV resort, if we return to the area we would stay here again.
We are Escapees so we enjoyed the low nightly rate. This park is just about average in as far as appearance goes. We arrived after office hours. I thought the check in process in the laundry room was confusing. Fortunately, a friendly park manager came out to the truck to help us and we were able to find the perfect spot, for us. Cable TV is not available at all sites, so be mindful of that when you pull into your spot. We were one spot away from cable. This park is not close to anything. You must drive at least 15 minutes to the nearest grocery store or eating establishment, but I was okay with that because I really enjoyed the peace and quiet of no traffic whizzing by. The surrounding area is beautiful. No mail delivery here, but I had our mail sent to the little post office General Delivery and that worked out fine. We would definitely stay here again.
While this was not an extremely tidy RV park, we would stay here again. Front desk person was fantastic: she gave us some open spot choices and let us pick our own site, which we love to do. The sites are fairly close together, but they are staggered so that you are not door to slide. There are trees but they are really tall and don't give much relief from the sun. Although I didn't use the pool, it looked clean. They could spruce up the place a bit, but it would not deter us from returning.
This is a lovely park. It's full of trees, there is a big body of water that everyone can enjoy, you can fish, it's quiet, the office personnel is helpful and friendly, it's big rig friendly and has full hook-ups. What's not to love about that? We stayed here in 08 and made an effort to return.
We travel full time in our RV and will forever more compare every park to Williston Crossings. This park is beautiful with large sites either on the grass or cement pad. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. We love to choose our "perfect" site when allowed and we were happily driven all over the park in a golf cart to check out every possibility. We arrived at the end of April and the park was basically empty so we had a lot of sites to choose from. Trees separate you and your neighbors so it feels very roomy. It was very quiet as well because you are not near a main road which seems to be a luxury not found at most RV parks. We did not use the facilities, except for the laundry room, which was state of the art. We stayed for 10 days and were sad to leave. You'd be crazy not to stay here.
I am giving SC Ranch a middle of the road review because as a "Resort" it is very cluttered and filled with children running about. Lots of families living here full time and the management allows anything and everything to be stored near your RV - it's very low rent looking for a resort. The management is very nice and easy going, they even let us pick our own site. Lots of shade - actually too much shade for us as the weather is quite cool in the spring. The sites are extremely close together - almost slide to slide. We have stayed here three times and will be back in the future.
