The camp-ground has improved greatly. They have added about 15 50 amp sites. There are supposed to be some sites with sewer. I have never been able to find them. Personally, I think they count the ones hooked up to the permanent peoples trailers. They have cleaned up a lot since my last stay. Mowed weekly during the summer. Lot of tent camping which can get a little loud on weekends. Some really long, long term RV here. There are a lot of internal activities during the summer. They have a permanent chapel here with a resident pastor. I've recommended this place to several people. Some did not like it because of the people running the office. And, there are a couple there that can really ruin a vacation. The facilities include a swimming pool, pavilion, camp-store , pony rides, bicycle and canoe rentals. It is right across from the Dismal Swamp Canal. I've been here long term and have enjoyed this stay. Be prepared to pay for the honey wagon's visit. I prepay for weekly service. There is shopping and a grocery store within 1.5 miles. It is farm country, but building up fast. It is not a bad place for a long term stay. Remember, this is not Cherry Hill.

Great place to stay. Owner emailed me with information about groceries. No running down to the 7-11 here! 46 miles to the Marfa IGA. Park was clean and people were very friendly. There are campers that come here year after year. I loved the remoteness and the quiet. Gathering around the front porch at night was fun and something that I had not done since I was a kid. Yes, there are scorpions and snakes and other wildlife. If these things bother you stay home! This is the remote desert and they are a part of it. Yes, ants too. I will be coming back later this year to spend a couple of months.

Older trailer park just added in a RV section. Two trees, lots of gravel. Nice people, they were remodeling all the time I was there. This place can be hard to find. The map is very confusing. Don't know about amenities, I was too tired to ask. People seemed nice. Working their hump off upgrading the park. Give them a try.

Just across the Missouri River from Atchison, KS. Converted mobile home park with old pads still in place. Good LOS for DirecTV. Stayed there a month. Enjoyed the place. Very difficult to find. If you are arriving after dark, you will probably not be arriving at this park. The sign is about 12" square. All the roads down there are not marked, and they all run together sooner or later. You do not want to get back down in there and have to back out a big rig. Plenty of cool little towns. Shop on the Missouri side. Many small trendy shops to snoop around. I truly enjoy the area.

Really nice place. And, it was one of the most expensive places I have ever seen. You pay $7.50 per day for sewer. $2 per day for cable. Free WiFi. Nice people and are helpful. Just be prepared to pay for EVERYTHING. Only KOA that did not have free coffee in the morning. They charged for it too. Great place and great people, just remember to bring lots of cash.

On I-40 just 7 miles west of I-75. Good Sam Park. Pretty nice. Friendly people. Good camp store. Well stocked and most prices are reasonable. They serve dinner from their kitchen. If you don't do anything else right, while you are there, get the rib dinner. Get the WHOLE rack, not the half. Believe me, you'll thank me later. The sides are a little light on the serving size. But, after getting the ribs, I forgive them. They are working on WIFI. Guess I'll do it the next time I come thru. They were waiting for family to put the new antenna up.

Nice hotel. The RV part is nothing but gravel. You have to post a $5 deposit to get a key to turn the water on. There's a bath house and laundry at the east end of the property. No cable. Just a parking place with power. There's a DQ and pizza place close, and a cafe at the gas station down on the freeway. Basic RVing at it's best. You do get a free T-Shirt when you check out.

After having a heck of a time, I finally found this place. The office was closed, there was no provision for after hours check-in. No phone number to call. No phone to use if you had a number for the park. No maps, no nothing. Finally found a guy riding around on his golf cart and he led me to the full hookup sites. Site very poorly laid out for today's RV's. This place is a maze of roads. Some of which, end with no notice. The roads are narrow, none are marked, and a lot of them have no turn around. Be prepared to backup. The road in is one way. The road out is also one way...but, find the exit. The people in the park were nice. The managers, office personnel and workers couldn't care if you stayed there or not. The camp store is dirty, very cluttered, and just try to find something there. I know why Trailer Life slammed the place. There seemed to be a lot of family type stuff to do. But, after the hassle I had with finding a full hookup site, I wasn't too concerned about amenities. All I wanted was out. Either arrive before sundown or bring a mighty big light, radar and a GPS cause you're going to need it. Oh yeah, there were few lights in the park. They used a Christmas light to mark the sites. The park is aptly named. I'm serious about this part, if you need electricity for life support or help in an emergency, do not stay in this campground. There are a couple of parks within 5 mile driving distance that are much safer. If you get in trouble there, you are totally on your own.

Another great place to stay. The staff has been here for years, and treats you right. I used to fix dinner on Sunday and feed the entire staff. Lots of wildlife. Many festivals held in the park during the summer. A lot of the campers have been coming there for years. The people in town and the campground really do mess up the way us Texas guys think about Yankees. Give her a try, you won't regret it.

I have stayed here two or three times a year since 2001. The owner is retired military from FT Bliss. I have watched him work this place over for 5 years. I have always loved the area and plan on staying at this park for a couple of months next year after I get straight with the VA. The place is always clean. The owner is always doing something. He was so proud when the wireless was put in. The cable sometimes is bad. But, that's life in the desert. No good grounds equal no good TV. Nice little camp store and the cafe serves some pretty good food. I love it when they bring dinner to your trailer. All in all, I cannot recommend this place any higher.

Everything about this place is a 10. From the owner to the parking pad it's all a 10. The owner worked 18 hour days while I was there upgrading and installing new spaces. Loved the wi-fi and they had installed cable the third day I was there. I was there for a month. I cannot praise this place enough. The owners and the town were the absolute best.

Great place. Great people. One of the most enjoyable parks I have ever stayed in. Having to leave there was almost as hard as leaving home. A little town is close with an IGA grocery. There are about 15 businesses in nearby Lithopolis. I go back as often as I can.
