Pros about this park is that it is as clean as you will ever find a park, paved roads and pads, good line of sight for roof mounted satellite dish, and a nice and helpful office staff. Cons are that it is a little pricey and our GPS had a devil of a time getting us there. We would stay here again though because it is such a nice park.
Very nice State Park and if it had sewers this may have gotten one of our rare "10" ratings. Long pull thru that was paved and level. Good line of sight for roof mounted satellite dish. We would stay here again even though we rarely stay at places without full hookups. That is how nice this park was. Do not like the camping fee and the park fee both being charged, but it is what it is.
We were in the newer part of the park in the long pull thrus which were real level. Also, no trees so roof mounted satellite dish worked great. Office staff was great and worked well with us on our uncertainty due to slide out problems. Gravel roads and gravel sites. Rates not as high as the usual KOA rates. We would stay here again.
Park gets high marks mainly because the gal in the office is so nice. The park is about what you'd expect in Abilene. Gravel roads and sites with few trees, which was OK for us for our roof mounted satellite dish. 3 nights planned turned into 8 due to slide out problems.
To get a good line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish, we got in a very short and very un-level site. Even though it was paved it went uphill, and because it was so short, our RV was barely able to disconnect from our truck. Hooking up to leave was also fun. The office staff was helpful and they make a mean pizza in the office. We might stay here again but would definitely get a another site.
A great park for kids, but we don't have kids so that did not appeal to us. Stayed hooked up since just staying one night and didn't venture out much due to the heat and the kids running around. Barely enough room for our truck and 5er hooked up and a good line of sight for our satellite dish. We probably would not stay here again.
It is what it is, a gravel parking lot with hookups, but it was what we were looking for a 3 night stay. The office staff was very nice and helpful, the hookups were great, with no trees; got a great line of site for roof mounted satellite dish. We were in probably the longest pull-through that we have ever been in. We would stay here again.
Nice State Park with full hookups at a few sites. Lots of trees, but was able to point the satellite dish successfully between a couple of them. Hookups were convenient and reliable. We would stay here again as we have family in the area.
We called in January of this year and requested a site where the dish could get a signal. Check-in was easy and the roads were nice to the grassy area that was our site. But we drove by the site because we could not see any hookups, we thought it was a parking area, a very well shaded parking area. The power and sewer were way down the hill by the site which shared the water pedestal with the site on the other side. After hooking up we found out the roof mounted satellite dish would not work. Why the people in the office don't know the sites is beyond me. We found out later, after we left our water pressure regulator and water softener on the pedestal on the wrong side after we did our normal walk around before leaving on the usual side, we found out that the office people never go into the park. Makes you appreciate parks with owners on site.
One of our favorite campgrounds. Paved roads and gravel sites that are well maintained. 50a FHU site with good utilities. Had a line of sight for roof mounted satellite dish, but there are trees so some sites could be problematic. Can get a little close in some sites but the location makes up for it right on Grand Marais Bay off of Lake Superior. There is a short trail that will take you to Lake Superior too and the park is a short walk to downtown Grand Marais with some of the best eating places, a foodies paradise. We are already talking about when we can visit again.
Nice, quiet park near Duluth. There are a few small ponds on the property which is a nice touch especially if you get a waterfront site. There were permanent residents here but they were immaculate which tells you a lot about the running of the park. It had rained a lot prior to our visit but the gravel roads and gravel pads held up real well. Utilities were in good working order. We were in a back to back site used as a pull through with a water view. In busier times these sites may have two RVs. We will stay here again.
Everything about this park, except for making a reservation and paying a one nights deposit, was a disaster. We feel more comfortable with a person to greet you at check-in but there was no one. Parks cannot control when it rains but can help the situation with gravel and there was hardly any. When we requested a reservation we requested a site where our roof mounted satellite dish would work and of course it did not; we were parked next to a tree. Parked next to permanent residents that didn't keep their site neat. Utility hookups were awkward. We paid a one night's deposit so we stayed only one night of the week that we had planned and moved on. We will NEVER stay at this place again.
Connected to the Days Inn so check-in at the hotel which was a little weird, but they were super nice. It had rained, but there was gravel there so not so bad. Our roof mounted satellite dish worked as promised so we were happy about that. All the utilities worked good so another plus. This is really a stopover kind of place but still a nice park for seeing all the stuff in the area. We would stay here again.
Location, Location, Location, that is what this park has. Real close to everything to see in Medora and there is a lot. Sites are real close together but we did have a site where our roof mounted satellite dish worked, but it was right by the office so it was noisy plus the world's largest bug zapper was near the office and man it made a lot of noise.
Gravel roads and sites made this a fairly dusty stopover. We were one of only a few sites being occupied, the others seemed to be fairly permanent. Lots of space between sites which was good. Great line of sight for satellite dish on roof which was nice. We would probably probably stay here again. This is not a destination resort but it is pretty good for the area and there is a lot to do in the area.
Park could have gotten a higher rating but our roof mounted satellite dish would not work in site reserved even though requested when reservation made. Thought tree trimming would solve problem and park readily agreed to trim trees but still no signal. Park did have excellent cable TV reception, best we have ever had. Park is very clean, owners are in the park with you and very nice, best park in area. You are a little close to each other but not as bad as we have seen before. We will stay here again.
We chose this park for the easy access to Yellowstone National Park, but man the rate is hard to swallow. Very nice park with very long and level pull through sites. Knowledgeable staff that knew which site would allow our roof mounted satellite dish to get reception. Would be rated higher if the rate was lower as we have been in parks just as nice with much lower rates.
Conflicted about giving this park a 6 as it could be much higher except for one incident, a park custodian while weed eating propelled a rock and shattered one of our windows. This turned a 1 week stay into almost 7 weeks. We lost 2 weeks to a bungled repair and then 4 weeks to getting an entire brand new window. Otherwise the park is great and the owners are wonderful. You can tell a lot about ownership AFTER the problem has occurred and they stepped up to the plate and treated us nicely. Nice level, gravel sites, we got a 50 amp full hookup site but these are limited. We had a great line of sight for our roof mounted satellite dish. This park would be much higher if not for the window breaking incident. The most that we can say is that we would stay here again.
Nice park with a lot of trees, asphalt streets and gravel fairly level sites. Wi-Fi was free and pretty good. Why the very low rating you ask? Part of your experience in a park is the front office people. While nice, I found our checkin personnel incompetent. We had asked for a satellite friendly site and when we get to our site there is a huge tree and a utility pole right next to the site at the rear of the site where our dish is on the roof. All the sites had trees at the rear of the site so we moved to a site with a much smaller tree and also a utility pole. Being so close meant that even with the tree just starting to bud there was too much interference so the dish could not lock onto a satellite. The trees were all over and we could not even get a signal on our portable automatic that we moved towards the front of the site. When we call a place and are told, no problem with the satellite, we expect no problems. When you pay KOA rates you expect above average everything: we just did not get it here. Utility hookups are a little awkward as I don't like to have the water hose under or over the sewer hose. Needed two sections of our sewer hose due to the layout. We will not stay here again.
Rate reflects a weekly rate. An excellent launch pad to see all in the area; Lake Powell, Colorado River, Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, Grand Staircase, etc. Lots of trees in park but office knew where to put us so our dish on roof would work. Free Wi-Fi is good but dropped a lot. Utility connections were OK except for sewer which was at the extreme rear of the site. The motor home next to us had to use three sewer hose extensions. We parked so we would only have to use 2 which is all we have. We don't tent, but the neatest tent area we have seen in a park with short concrete walls separating each tent area. We will stay here again if ever in the area.
Unlike the last reviewer we must have been in the old area because we had bad park Wi-Fi and from our Verizon MiFi. We also had bad cell coverage too. Staying in April we wished we could have had a cheaper rate. Park is located right next to Bryce Canyon National Park which is why we chose it. There were trees everywhere in the campground but the gals in the office knew right where to put us for our roof mounted dish to work. Some office personnel I swear have never set foot in the park because they say sure your dish will work and, bam, you are right next to a tree. We would stay here again if ever in the area.
Rate reflects Passport America rate. This park is a good launch pad for all to see in the area. Long level gravel wide sites that are not crammed next to each other. The onsite manager was great. Wi-Fi was a little spotty but when available it was real fast. Hookups were laid out pretty good. We will definitely stay here again.
Rating may be skewed because it was a holiday weekend, so we did not get the Passport America rate (which was not mentioned when we made reservation). This park was crowded and noisy. Our biggest complaint has to do with making reservations for sites that have an easy line of sight for a satellite dish on roof, and get to the site to find a big ole tree there. Being a holiday weekend all sites are booked. We also feel it should be a rule that someone working in the office should at least have walked or driven through the park. Before we paid we asked about the dish and was told it was ok. Doubt we will ever stay here again.
Only able to stay here one night but wanted to stay more. Easy pull through sites far apart from each other. Pull through sites were long enough that we could leave the F-350 hooked up to our 36' fifth wheel. Interior roads were gravel and pads were gravel. Super nice owners. Satellite dish on roof had easy line of sight as this is a newer park and the trees are immature. We will be back to this nice park.
Small RV park in the heart of Kanab. Interior roads are gravel as are the pads. Somewhat close together sites but not as bad as some we have seen. Only a few sites that provide line of sight for a satellite dish on roof and we got one. We would stay here again for the park but there was a lack of good places to eat in Kanab so we may bypass the town the next time through.
Very nice small park with horses and chickens in a very scenic location. Rate reflects 6 nights and get the 7th free as we stayed there a week. Hookups were a little awkward but doable after some maneuvering. Had a great line of site for satellite dish on roof. Gravel roads and gravel pads. We would stay here again.
Old campground with a lot of permanent residents with a new big rig area with pull throughs close to the interstate. Never saw an attendant as we just left our check in an envelope at the office. Easy to get around luckily as we had to drive around a lot to find the big rig area. Gravel roads and gravel pads. Good for a brief stopover.
Very scenic park with gravel roads and gravel pads. There was a tree on the side of our lot that was trimmed but not enough so we scraped the side and dinged a decal. Good hookups and a great line of sight for our satellite dish on the roof. We would stay here again the next time in the area.
This is now our favorite campground, although there is a caveat emptor:This is the worst dead zone that we have seen for phone, text and Internet. The park did not have Wi-Fi so we were isolated which was nice but next time we will let people know we will be out of contact. Price includes the $7 day park access fee. Asphalt roads and concrete pads with sites that are not jammed together. Reservation system means you have to reserve at least three days in advance and if you are a walk-in you can only pay the walk-in days. We had a 50 amp full hookup site but the water pressure was a little low. We had a back-in site that had a view of the reservoir and the mountains and was long enough that our TV could park in the site also. Had good visibility for our DirecTV satellite dish to get good reception. We will stay here again when we are in the area.
Best place to camp in the Denver area that we found. Price includes the $9 day park access fee. Asphalt roads and concrete pads with sites that are not jammed together. Reservation system means you have to reserve at least three days in advance and if you are a walk-in you can only pay the walk-in days. We had a 50 amp full hookup site but the water pressure was a little low. We had a pull through site that was easy to access and long enough that our tow vehicle could park in the site also. Had good visibility for our DirecTV satellite dish to get good reception. We will stay here again when we are in the area.
Had water pressure problems during our stay and at first they denied having any problems and then tried to blame our water filter, which was after our regulator, and then the regulator itself. Only when a camp worker put a gauge on another pedestal and it showed the same 20 psi as our regulator. The most upsetting is that it happened again in a couple of days and you guessed it, they never heard of the problem even though it was the same person we talked with. An expensive park in a run down section of town right next to a really run down trailer park. Interior roads are narrow as everything is crammed together. We will try and find another park on our next visit to the area.
Probably not a fair review since the campground had a water leak which forced some crowding at the end where it was not leaking. Only picked this spot since it was the right amount of miles to travel and the reviews indicated this was just a stopover place. So our expectations were not high to begin with and they were immediately dashed. Two site choices, one a back-in perpendicular and real close to another fifth wheel; or a pull through. We picked the pull through and we are not convinced it was a site at all because there was no gravel like the others around us and to pull through we had to go over a curb. Not one of our better experiences.
The remoteness of this park combined with the views of the Black Hills make this one of our favorite campgrounds. Combine that with it also being a horse camp so you can see horses and riders add to the charm. Rate is Passport America. Had a level 50a FHU pull through that we could easily use our satellite dish on the roof. We will definitely stay here again.
Very nice park with very friendly and helpful owners. Nightly rate reflects Passport America rate. We had asked for a site that was a 50a, FHU site that we could use our satellite dish on the roof and this park delivered on all accounts. We have been promised dish usability only to find a tree and an attendant in the office that we swear has never set foot in the park. Gravel roads and gravel sites with lots of trees but the owner knew exactly where to place us. We will definitely stay here again.
Nightly rate is based on 6 nights with 1 night free. Reserved specifically a site that we could use our satellite dish on the roof. We ended up with a site with a tree right in the way. Plus this park setup for Motorhomes so they can pull into a lake view site so the hookups were opposite. There also was a telephone wire just above our roof. With the hookup situation we had to use an extension cord which made us use 30amps instead of 50amps. If we can be guaranteed a lake view site with 50 amps and the satellite dish on the roof would work we might return to this park.
Nice small park in a small town in the Upper Peninsula. Very friendly staff and extensive landscaping with flowers and bushes at the sites which was a nice touch. Even though it was wooded they knew right where to put me so the satellite dish on roof would work unlike some places that look at you as if you were the first to ask that question. Gravel interior roads and sites which were level. Wi-Fi was good and free. If ever in the area we would stay here again.
Mixed feelings about this park. We were near the office at M-28, but it was a long level pull-through. It was open for satellite, with all the trees in the park it was one of the few sites open for satellite. As mentioned before, good utility hookups and the Wi-Fi was pretty good. The highway noise did not bother us but there was a loud train whistle 2-3 times during the week that we heard quite well. Without a reservation we were lucky to get a site and the site was great for satellite but then another big rig pulled in next to us and the sites were at an angle such we were right next to each other. These are the only two sites that are that way, the others have good distance between them. The area is terrific with waterfalls, lighthouses and of course Pictured Rocks. We will be back in the area and would stay here again.
Rate is for a 50a FHU site at the Passport America rate. The staff was great and had some of the best restaurant recommendations we can remember. We also asked for a site where our satellite dish on the roof would work so we were out in the open which worked fine for us. We had lots of room between sites which is nice but on grass which is not so nice. Wi-Fi and cable worked fine. We would probably stay here again if in the area.
A rare "10" from us but everything about this park is great. The hosts are wonderful, the roads and pad are paved. The pad is wide and long enough for our 36' fifth wheel and truck to park on it. 50 amp electrical a nice touch in this area along with full hookups. There are bushes planted between sites adding to privacy. The best outdoor area with a fire pit, BBQ grill, picnic table in a shelter, and a park bench. Wi-Fi was also the best we have seen. All of this overlooks the Portage River in a great area just steps from the Houghton Waterfront Trail. We will stay here again.
Park is in a great location and the owners are friendly. Older park built into the side of the bluff so the roads are narrow but you can get around if you go slow. We have a 36' Fifth Wheel. It had just rained so when we backed in we went on the grass since the roads were narrow. The pads are also narrow but the site is not too close to your neighbors. Since on a bluff overlooking the lake the sites are a little less than level but our Big Foot handled that just fine. There are a few sites where our satellite dish on the roof would work and we got one of them. Wi-Fi was weak at our spot. Bayfield is a great little town with restaurants that would be good anywhere.
Only drawback to this place is how close the pull throughs are to each other. We will try and get a back-in site next time. Very clean park right next to Mystic Lake Casino both owned by the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community so of course there is a free shuttle to the Casino. Paved roads with paved sites, nice landscaping but still able to use our satellite dish on roof. We will definitely stay here again. Rate is the nightly equivalent of the weekly rate.
Park gets a higher rating and the site gets a lower rating so this is the average. Passport America rate including tax. Site was not level and supposed to be gravel but hardly any gravel left so when it rained, which it did in record numbers, it was a mud pit. Free WiFi was spotty. We may stay here again as family is planning a mini-reunion next year, but will hope for more sun and more gravel.
Older park in the middle of nowhere New Mexico that fit into our driving schedule, not a destination park. Typical NM park with gravel everything and dusty when the wind blows, which is most of the time. Sites are wide, long and level which is nice. Had no problem navigating with our 36' Fifth Wheel. Have a restaurant but did not try. Staff was friendly. We would stay here again if our driving schedule dictated.
Rate is 50 amp, FHU Escapees discount paying cash, a reasonable price. This is a good park for a quick stay in the area. Has gravel roads and gravel pads that are fairly level. There are nearby railroad tracks and a train passes by frequently. We would stay here again.
Rate reflects Escapee discount. This park is ideally located for the area attractions; 5 miles to Meteor Crater, 18 miles east to Winslow, 25 miles west to Walnut Canyon National Monument and 35 miles west to downtown Flagstaff. Road noise and train noise barely noticeable. Level sites long enough for our 36' fifth wheel. Gated entrance which is nice and the park was clean. Would be rated higher if paved roads and pads. The sad news is that the deli no longer has the green Chile tacos, it is only prepackaged stuff now. We would camp at this place again.
Probably the longest and most level sites we have had. Our 36' 5er and our F-350 fit easily. Sites are real close together but they don't put you side by side unless they are full. A very basic park probably best for overnight or short stays. Free WiFi.
This is a very clean, well-maintained park featuring wide driving lanes and fully-paved sites. There is a fair amount of space between sites. Sites are easy in and easy out and most sites are long enough for big rigs, but tow vehicles must be parked perpendicular to the RVs. We got a site with a beautiful view of the Sandia Mountains from inside the rig which is rare and did not seem as close together as our last visit. Park also recycles which is a nice touch. Good shopping nearby. The entrance sign to this park is easy to miss. More noticeable are adjacent signs for the J & R Vintage Car Museum and the Stagecoach Plaza which are also accessed via the RV park’s entrance. Great place to eat the Range Cafe is close by.
This was our second time here. This is a wonderful park. Spots are paved, flat and huge. The only thing it lacks is trees and shade which is not a big deal for us. WiFi was spotty which is why this place did not get a 10. Have food at the clubhouse but all we tried this trip was pizza which was good. Stay 2 nights and get the 3rd night free which is a good deal. They have on site RV repair, propane, and RV wash. Staff is very friendly. We would definitely stay here again.
Pull-through sites are very narrow; get two rigs side by side and the slides are too close for our peace of mind. A good overnight stay place, but a little bit too much money for the parking lot with hookups for the pull-through sites. Back-in sites are not full hookup.
This is our 'go to' place when we are in the Kansas City area. We stayed for a few months this visit and were very pleased. We backed in to a 50amp, FHU site with shade trees. Although there are sites without FHUs, the majority do and FHU sites usually are available, all you have to do is ask when you check in. WiFi was a little spotty but that has been our experience at a lot of parks.
One of the larger parks we have ever stayed in. Level sites with concrete pads. We were parked next to a tree that provided shade in the afternoon at our picnic table. Always something to do in this park from an Hawaiian Luau to hamburger night to spaghetti night to poker to games, etc. One thing to know about this park is that it is close to Luke AFB so you can get jet noise but we were there for a month and got used to it. Lots of citrus trees that you can pick the fruit from so enjoyed oranges, grapefruit and lemons. Very nice place to stay, we have already made our reservations for next winter.
Nice, small Passport America Park a ways away from Chandler. Our Site was fairly level but dirt so when it rained it was muddy. When it did not rain but windy or traffic the red dust was stirred up and this is our biggest problem with the park. Sites are not crammed together which is nice. This is a combination mobile home/RV park so many long term residents. This is a good overnight or short stay park and we would probably come back.
A gem that nobody knows about! Good sized campground that almost always will have availability. Put this park in a more touristy location than Amarillo and it would have a waiting list. Just like we like it: the sites are paved and wide and not jammed in next to your neighbor. Being a new park they can accommodate big rigs with no problem. With an onsite repair service and catered meals brought into the clubhouse for sale and several laundry rooms, there is no reason to leave the park. Rates reflect a "buy 2, get one free" promotion. We would definitely stay here again.
Escapees RV park with wide gravel roads and sites. You are near I-10 and some railroad tracks (what RV park is not near railroads) but with dual pane windows and a noise machine we barely noticed the proximity. We would definitely return to this park. My rate is the Escapees Club member rate (plus electric at approximately 10 1/2 cents per kilowatt hour.)
We love this park! We would have given it a 10 if there had been better gravel or a paved site as it rained during our stay and it was muddy. We had a river view site and enjoyed walks along the river on the walking trails and sitting in the swinging benches throughout the park. Kerrville and the Texas Hill Country are amazing.
Clean park with nice view of the Sandia Mountains. Sites are a little close together for our taste and a little expensive. Convenient to shopping and eating places. Would probably stay here again as the options in the Albuquerque area are somewhat limited.
We are Escapees but have to say we were disappointed in this park. Location is OK since not much else in West Texas, and the office staff was nice. The sites were real close together, we have been in parks where the space we parked was used for one RV, but two RV's were jammed into that space here. Hookups were good. Might stay again since not much else in area.
We camped here for a week on our westward journey to the Phoenix area. Used the Passport America discount. Got a pull through site which was incredibly long and wide, just like we like them. Great location convenient to Tombstone, Kartchner Caverns, Bisbee, etc. PA rate included a pretty fast Wi-Fi. Waterfront is actually a small pond but a nice touch. Road noise not an issue but train noise could be. We have a noise machine so the train noise did not bother us. Nice tidy park with some activities and pot lucks, but we were so worn out after sightseeing we did not participate.
Good location near San Antonio. Was able to use Passport America rate for 7 nights. Got a pull thru, hookups were convenient. Had the coldest nights that we had in 2009-2010 winter, down to 17 degrees one night so water was turned off.
Difficult to rate this experience since the weather was sooooooo bad while we were here. We were just starting out full-timing and were expecting walks along the water in our shorts and sandals: what we got was maybe 4 days out of the month that was nice weather, the rest were cold, rainy, foggy, or all of the above. Although this is not the park's fault, it did tend to amplify the negatives of the park. The main negative is that you are so darn close together in the sites. Without the help to back in, we don't think we would have made it. The roads and pads are concrete, which was nice. We might try this park again, but not for a few years.
National Headquarters for the Escapees RV Club and our mail forwarding service. Was nice to walk and get our mail and nice to walk around the whole park. One of the friendliest parks we have stayed at. Nice wide sites in a shaded area that our roof mounted satellite dish was still able to get a signal. Hookups were in good working order.
Sites are a bit close for our tastes but since ours was not a long term stay it was OK. We also prefer concrete or asphalt pads and it was all gravel. Hookups were in good working order, nice selection of cable channels. Wi-Fi was available, but we used our Verizon air card.
We stayed overnight and used the Passport America rate. Campground has a lot of potential, just needs some work which the owner has plans for. Unpaved, non-gravel interior roads and pad sites which were a little muddy. Would be interesting to see the progress in a few years.
Easy access from the highway through the Branson Landing. Campground right on Lake Tanneycomo. Within walking distance of Branson Landing, a nice shopping and eating area. Incredible access to all of the secondary routes in Branson which make getting around real easy.
