This is a wonderful State Park, and we keep returning. We even have a favorite site, 62. It is hard to beat the relaxation and enjoyment of this ample wooded, quiet, lakeside location. The wide variety of birds and the frequent visits from grazing deer at our site was delightful. Unfortunately, there is no sewer at the campsites, only a dump station. The rate for our 30 amp site was $25, but we also had to pay entrance fees which accounts for the total of $33 per night. We went to McDonalds in Sanger for internet access.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stays here. The hummingbirds and chipmunks are wonderful entertainment. We spotted a dusty grouse on one of our hikes. The scenery is magnificent. The river is beautiful and relaxing. The history of the area is interesting, and there are lots of areas to explore, on and off the property. The sites are a bit tight (designed before larger RVs with slides), but plenty long enough and manageable. The sites aren't perfectly level, but it's easy to make any minor adjustments. We couldn't get a cell signal, but the owners were kind enough to allow the use of their office phone when necessary, and it was a short drive to find a cell signal. The WiFi is sometimes slow and unreliable, but we suspect some of the campers may be streaming videos. Keep in mind that this is not a "resort" campground, but a "Mom and Pop" operation, and the owners are terrific. The utilities are reliable, the restrooms and laundry room were clean and well maintained. We stayed here a week and never ran out of stuff to do. We stored our RV for several weeks (very reasonable rates) and then returned for a couple more days. We will definitely camp here again whenever we are in the area.
Super friendly owners keep things running smoothly. This is a beautiful campground with large trees. We were assigned a premium pull through site that was long, wide, and fairly level. Electric and water hookups were near the rear of the site. The Wi-Fi was faster that we've experienced at ANY other campground, in spite of a Newmar rally and being near capacity. There is some I-39 road noise, but it didn't bother us. We only stayed overnight, but will stop here again when in the area. We recommend making a reservation. Our rate reflects a Good Sam discount.
Campground was scenic, shaded, quiet and relaxing. We had full hookups at our pull-through site #16. We enjoyed watching the birds along the shoreline of the lake. Terrific sunset! No cable or Wi-Fi, but our AT&T cellphones showed a strong signal at our site and the surrounding area. Texas State Parks are a terrific value. We would stay here again if in the area.
We really enjoy this campground. Beautiful sunrise over the water. Long, pull through sites are level, utilities and WI-FI worked well. River level was down but barge traffic was able to navigate. We will continue to stay here when in the area.
We enjoyed this campground. When our original pull-through was too unlevel for us to stay hooked up to our tow vehicle, the staff was happy to reassign. We only needed water and electric for our one night stay. This was a very convenient on/off from I-40, but far enough away that no noise was noticed. WI-FI and utilities worked fine. We would stay here again when in the area.
Beautiful, quiet, and relaxing campground. We only stayed overnight, but would have enjoyed a longer stay. Staff was friendly, but a bit flustered trying to solve a billing problem with a previous camper. We had a long pull through that needed some leveling. Utilities and WI-FI worked well. If in the area, we would definitely stay again.
This is a very pleasant campground. Sites are level and setting up was easy. Utilities and Wi-Fi worked well. We really enjoyed walking around the campground and our dog enjoyed the huge pet area where she could get acquainted with the cows at the fence. Staff was efficient and friendly. We stayed overnight. This is a Good Sam park.
This campground needs a lot of help. At least the check-in was friendly and efficient. Interior roads are rough, signage is inadequate, and some sites have utility problems. Equipment and junk are scattered around the campground. Due to heavy rain, the grassy sites were somewhat boggy in spite of fairly good drainage so leveling was a bit challenging. Wi-Fi didn't work. If in the area again, I would try very hard to find another overnight campground. Sadly, the Brimfield area is still showing the effects of the 2011 tornado.
This is a nice campground. We experienced the same problem another camper described with almost getting stuck in the mud when we drove into our pull through after a heavy rain. The staff is very friendly, but the office was only open two hours a day. Utilities and WI-FI worked well. We stayed three days, but had to leave due to the campground closing for the season. We would probably stay elsewhere next time.
A wonderful campground -- quiet, clean, and scenic. Utilities and Wi-Fi worked well. Our pull through site was long, wide, wooded, and private. Our first site wasn't as level as it looked, so we selected another that was much better. We had the laundry room to ourselves (clean and modern). We enjoyed the hiking trail. The owners are terrific! We stayed three nights and wished we could have stayed longer. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.
This campground is worth the stop for the view alone. This was the only place in all of Quebec Province that we had trouble communicating. The staff's English was lacking, but their friendliness made up for it. Site was fairly level and grassy. Utilities worked well. We didn't use Wi-Fi. Cash only.
This was an overnight stop. It is amazing how many sites are in this campground. Since it is hilly, the sites weren't very level, but manageable. The utilities worked fine. We didn't use WI-FI. The manager was very professional, informative, and friendly. The area is scenic. We would stay here again.
Due to construction, detours, rain, and heavy traffic, we didn't arrive until after dark. The campground office was closed, but I knocked on the restaurant door and was pleasantly greeted by the owner who assigned us a drive-through site. We were delighted with the well-maintained and spacious campground. Utilities and WI-FI worked great. The laundry was clean, and the machines worked well. We stayed two nights, and would definitely stay here again if in the area.
This campground was very convenient for our overnight stop. The owner was super friendly, and she gave us an easy drive-through site. We had no problem with utilities or WI-FI. We enjoyed the beautiful lake and fall colors. The campground is gated so that added a feeling of security. Some needed updates were in progress. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
We always stay here when in the Madison area. This KOA is conveniently located, well maintained, and friendly. The owners are always making improvements. No cable TV, but several broadcast stations can be picked up on antenna. Wi-Fi was reliable. Don't forget to stock up at Ehlenbach's (wonderful cheese) nearby. We stayed 8 nights.
This is a convenient and quiet place to overnight near I-35. We've stayed here several times over the years, and the current owners have made steady improvements. On this stop, we were running late due to construction and very heavy traffic in the Kansas City area. We were reassured over the phone that a site would be waiting for us. We arrived after dark (sadly missed the great campground sunset), and the owners helped us hook up. Our rate was Good Sam. No credit cards. We will continue to stop here in the future.
Convenient overnight stop along US 380, but didn't notice traffic noise. Quick, friendly, no-fuss check-in with cash discount. We were surprised by how full it was for a Sunday night. Fortunately, we had called ahead and had a spot waiting for us. We have stayed here several times over the years and will stay here again. Wi-Fi worked well. Added plus was a great view of the solar eclipse!
Clean, quiet, shaded, spacious campsite. We had an easy back in that was relatively level. We stayed for only one night but wanted to stay longer. The river was a short walk from the campsite and had a neat path alongside. Good Sam discount. Will definitely stay again when in the area.
Plan your trip here when it isn't raining since the campground is a quagmire when there is significant precipitation. Mud boots and 4WD were required when it was time to hook up and pull out. We stayed here before in 2005, but didn't have the mud problem. Some of the sites are not level, but are decently spaced. The utilities were at the rear of the back-ins, so make sure you have plenty of length on your water hose. Our trailer electric and cable are at the rear so that was convenient. Sewer was well located, but not threaded. WI-FI was not reliable. Cable was very good. Good Sam rate. We stayed for 5 nights. Interior roads need repair. The activity center has been upgraded and expanded. The staff and fellow campers were friendly and helpful. The campground is gated, so be sure you have the code handy when you come in after office hours. We felt safe and the campground is quiet. The location is convenient to Padre Island and area attractions. Overall, we were not satisfied with Breeze Lake, but don't know of a better place to stay if we return.
Terrific value compared to other campgrounds in the area. The management was super nice. Very clean and convenient for a one night stay. We will definitely stop here again when in the area. Rate reflected Good Sam rate and coupon.
Very pleasant campground. Hardworking and helpful staff. We loved the sunset and the sunrise. Our campsite on the end of a row gave us quick access to a huge open area for dog walking. We will stay here again when in the area.
This was our second time to stay at this CG. The new management has made some nice improvements. Both stays were only one-nighters as we were crossing the country, so we didn't take advantage of all of the facilities. The major improvement for us was FREE Wi-Fi. The previous stay was extra cost and didn't work, but this time it worked just fine. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome and meet our needs. This area can be very windy, so be careful about extending your awnings.
We really loved this campground. Our site (W9) was a back-in with a large wooded area behind that gave us an added feeling of space and privacy. The staff (including the work campers) were always happy to help out and share information about the area. The store down by Diamond Lake had the largest scoop of ice cream we've ever enjoyed. Diamond Lake is beautiful and could be a destination in itself, but nearby Crater Lake is AWESOME. We were late enough in the season to avoid mosquitoes.
Very nice campground with tall privacy shrubs between sites. In spite of tall trees and shrubs, it was surprisingly windy, so we were glad we didn't choose one of the beach side parks. Check in and information were at the Mini Mart. Staff helpfulness was minimal. We would probably try another CG next time.
We agree with most of the previous reviews. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The campground location was great for visiting Olympic NP. We were disappointed that our Good Sam $5 off coupon was not honored. Also noticed that this property was for sale.
Nice, quiet campground. Trail to the river was great, especially for the dog. Friendly and helpful staff. Rate was for partial hookup, Good Sam discount and Good Sam $5 off coupon. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.
We really enjoyed this campground. Across the creek we spotted 33 elk grazing. It was neat hearing the male bugle. Great location for sightseeing the coast. Very long and fairly level sites. Friendly and helpful staff.
Great location for sightseeing the Columbia and Hood River area. This campground is very clean and all utilities and services worked great. You can walk down to the Columbia River under the railroad bridge and pick all the blackberries you can eat. There was noise from traffic and trains, but that is unavoidable along the river. What was unusual was the weird hum of tires on the narrow metal toll bridge. We would stay here again.
It's not easy to find a decent campground in this part of the world, but the Clayton KOA is great for an overnight stop. Very long drive through sites. Friendly staff and quiet camping. We've stayed here before and will stay again.
We usually visit the Madison area in the Fall, but decided to visit over the 4th of July for a change. We stayed a total of 9 days. Every year we notice improvements to the campground. The location is great for us for visiting people and places in several different directions. We found the campground much busier due to summer vacations, but the staff was very helpful and friendly, and most campers were courteous and thoughtful. Our main complaint would be wind blown smoke from campfires, but that's part of the camping experience, huh? There should be cable TV included for the price paid, but we were able to capture several broadcast stations. A change from before was a two hour limit per day for free Wi-Fi. We had no trouble with that limit, but others might have to pay.
Great stop for us when driving north or south on I-35. This is just far enough off the freeway to escape the road noise. The rural setting is very relaxing with great sunsets. We have been staying here for several years, and we are pleased with the friendly new owners and the improvements they have made to the campground. The sites are level and long with some large shade trees. There is plenty of room for roaming and exploring. The Wi-Fi worked fine. Be advised that credit cards are not accepted, but the rates are very reasonable.
The facilities are nice and there are a lot of activities in the campground. We picked a drive-through site that was cement, long and level. Utilities were well spaced and sewer was downhill (why do so many other campgrounds have uphill sewers connections and long reaches for water and electric?). The cable TV was clear with a lot of channels. The WI-FI signal was very weak at our site, so we opted not to pay the extra $4/day for what we felt might be poor service. The fellow campers were friendly. Expect to see a LOT of dog walking. We felt very safe with the Fire Department and Police Department within a couple of blocks. The campground is also positioned well for area sights and services. Our only disappointment was the office staff. We paid $28.80 per night, which was the Good Sam rate. We have stayed here before, but will probably try a different campground near Aransas Pass on our next visit to the area.
We had a very nice back-in site by the river (#111). Our check-in went quickly, but was accomplished by a busy and very efficient, multi-tasking bartenter. The campground is great for walking around, and the scenery is beautiful. We loved being close to the water, but were lucky to leave before the flooding. The water pressure to the campsites was lost for a while due to a construction accident, and we had to use the bath house for showers. The facilities were clean and spacious, but could use some upgrading. Kudos for the hardworking staff who struggled in the rain and mud to get the water back on to the campsites. WI-FI was free in the office area, but cost extra in the campground. We stayed here for 3 nights, and would stay here again. This is a Good Sam park.
We stopped here for an overnight since we were just too tired to keep driving. The campground would have been difficult for us to find without directions, so please call if you are not familiar with the area. The management is very friendly and helpful. Our site was a little narrow due to the privacy fencing, but very level. It was unusual that the water hookup was underground and would be difficult for those with limited mobility to reach down, but I think the staff would gladly help out, if necessary. We would definitely stay here again. The free coffee and donuts in the morning were a plus!
We really like this campground. The staff is very efficient at check-in. We found the pull through sites to be long and roomy and relatively flat, which explains why there were so many big rigs. The road and train noise were not bothersome, but I do enjoy listening to trains. Cable TV would have earned this place a 10. The location near St. Louis and Six Flags explains the higher rate. We have stayed here before and will stay here again.
We have been staying at this KOA for several years. The very accommodating management work hard to please the campers and to make improvements to the campground. We received the off-season rate and the KOA discount for our stay of 11 days. The sites are easily accessed. We feel very safe here since it is located behind a state trooper station. The access on and off the interstate is easily negotiated. Madison and the surrounding communities and attractions are nearby. A few more trees, cable TV and a tennis court would earn this campground a perfect score.
After reading all the excellent reviews before trying out Bonito Hollow, we thought we would really enjoy our stay here. We did enjoy the scenic beauty of the CG, and appreciated the very friendly and helpful staff. However, most of the sites were too close together and not level. We had our hitch almost on the ground and were still not level. If you enjoy screaming children, crying babies, loud "adults", amplified music from other campsites, campfire smoke, encroachment from neighboring campers and their guests onto your site, and noisy late arrival RV setups (after 10pm), then this is the place for you! The WiFi signal was very weak, and those sites with sewer tended to require an uphill hookup. We won't be coming back here, but will return to Little Creek in the future.
We agree with other reviews about the beauty of this campground. It is scenic and remote (the gravel approach road was a bit rough). Be aware that this is not a "refined" campground. The back-ins can be difficult to maneuver due to the boulders dividing sites and protecting utilities, so the friendly staff guidance was appreciated. Many of the back-ins are well worth the effort for the added privacy and the natural setting behind the fence, especially our site #43. Also, most of the sites are not level. We needed to use our extensions to reach both water and electric. The proximity to the North Rim is a big plus for this campground. Be aware that the weather can be dicey in May (we had snow one morning and 28 degrees, and the next morning was 24 degrees).
This is a delightful campground. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff is very friendly and helpful and is working hard to make needed improvements. Some of the sites are a little rough and will require some leveling of your RV. We liked the proximity to Sequoia and Kings Canyon, but this place could be a destination by itself. The river is very relaxing to view and hear. A caution for children and pets. We spotted a small dead rattlesnake near the office. (It was quickly removed).
Very friendly and helpful staff. Campground is cramped and poorly laid out, but clean and well maintained. It is quite difficult to maneuver rigs. Most sewer connections are slightly uphill, which is a pain. Washers and dryers were excellent, but the laundry room was uphill with no parking. Cable TV was great, but WiFi didn't work. Super location near Yosemite. Nice town with ample services.
