Our site (P-68) had a fabulous view of the bay. it was awesome!! The signage to the park was very good. The check in staff was exceedingly friendly and helpful. The interior roads are gravel and level. Our site was fairly level, grass and dirt, pull thru and had reasonable space between sites. There are several seasonal campers but we were in the transient part of the park so the clutter of the seasonal campers did not effect us. Our site had no trees so we had no trouble using our roof mounted satellite. Also the park had cable with a handful of channels. Our Verizon cell signal was excellent. We were close enough to the Club House so we were able to get a reasonable wifi signal from our motorhome. Also, they offered a military discount which is always heart warming to know people show their appreciation to our military. If we were back in this area we would definitely return if we could get the same beautiful view from our site.

What an awesome park. You cannot ask for any better, more natural beach campground. The directions and signage to the park were outstanding. The check in staff were extremely helpful. In fact, we were not slated for an electric site but a last minute cancellation for an electric site became available. The staff worked with the system to cancel and reassign our reservation so we could be in the electric loop. The park is a very natural setting. All interior roads are paved and each site is paved. Therefore the site was level and the spacing between each site is spacious. There are no trees in the campground so no shade. With no trees to block the signal, the roof mounted satellite worked fine. Also, our Verizon cell had a very good signal.

Signage to park was very good. The park is huge and was maintained well. The location is perfect for some wine tasting. The view at the lake is outstanding. The interior roads were paved and gravel roads to the loops. The loop roads had some potholes. Our site (239) was level, gravel with grass surrounding, reasonable size and was easy to back into. We had no problem with the site or throughout the park with our 38' motorhome. Our site was shaded so the roof mounted satellite did not work. The sites are well off the road so there is absolutely no road noise. Our Verizon cell reception was good. This is a great park for bike riding as there are several roads to explore. We were sorry we didn't have enough time to go to the Military Museum. We would definitely return to this park if we were in the area again.

The signage to the park was outstanding. The check in staff was friendly. The park is well maintained. The location is perfect for Niagara Falls sight seeing. In fact, your hanging car pass qualifies you to park at Niagara Falls State Park for free while you are visiting the falls. The streets were paved and well maintained. Our site was level, gravel with grass surrounding, a very spacious size and was very easy to back into. The whole park is very big rig friendly. Our site (3) had some trees so we were not able to use our roof mounted satellite. Our Verizon service was good. We would definitely return here is we were in the area.

The directions to the campground were very good and the signage was also good. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The campground was very well maintained. We had site 93 which was level, gravel, had grass in between the sites, had reasonable space between sites and had partial shade. It was a true pull through site with easy in and out, if you elected to stay hooked up. It is very convenient to all the local Lincoln historical sites. It was very convenient to I-55 but not close enough to be bothered by road noise. The Wi-Fi was good and there was also local stations on the cable. We were even able to use our roof mounted satellite. We would definitely return here if we are in the area again.

This is a lovely campground to enjoy the beauty of nature. We were in site 86 which is heavily forested. We were fortunate to have 50 amp service but of course there was not a water hookup. The directions to the campground were good as was the signage. The site was somewhat level, mostly dirt with a little grass and we backed in with minimal problem although it was a little tight. Given the trees, we were unable to use our satellite nor could we get local TV on the antennae. Verizon cell signal was good. We participated in several activities at the Lodge and also had a nice dinner at the Lodge. There are several hiking trails in the park with incredible views of the various canyons. It is definitely worth a stay to experience the natural beauty of the park.

The staff at this campground are extremely friendly and very accommodating. They were very helpful with all sorts of local information. We were in site 27 which is close to the office and the restrooms. The showers and restrooms were extremely clean and very well maintained. The campground itself is also very well maintained. The interior roads were level but a bit on the narrow side. Our site was level, a bit narrow but was located between some huge spruce Christmas trees, which were delightful to view out our windows. The campground is very close to the highway but as a previous reviewer wrote, it is very pleasant to listen to clop, clop of the horses. We were not able to get any local TV reception with our antennae, but had no problem with satellite reception. Our Verizon cell phone had good reception also. My only negative is that the Wi-Fi was only free for 1/2 per day. As another reviewer wrote, for the site rate there should be free unlimited Wi-Fi, especially since there are no other amenities such as a pool. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely Corps of Engineers campground. It is a small campground but you have all the lovely features of a Corps park - waterfront, large spacious sites and great rates. We are able to use our Senior Pass therefore the rate is half price. Our site was gravel, almost level and was lake front. The host came around to check on us and gave us our information. Very friendly and helpful. Our Verizon cell phone had good reception but no TV reception from either satellite or antennae. That is OK because we would rather enjoy the lovely trees. The signage on US 27 is very small and we missed it the first time so be very cautious. The entrance hill is very steep but not long in length. The interior road is one way and can be a little tricky at the end to make the turn but it is doable with our 39' motorhome. We are always thankful to be able to find a Corp park along our travel route. We would come back here if we were in the area.

This park is perfect for our travels as it is a midpoint between two locations. The sites are level and relatively spacious. Great pull through lots are long enough for a large motorhome and tow vehicle. It is the perfect place for an overnight stop: no hassles, pool, and all those other "amenities" that you do not use on an overnight stop. The rate quoted is Passport America for 50 amp with w/e/s. The owners were very accommodating and even drove to our tow to give us a jump as our tow would not start. We have stopped here before and would stop again. Wi-Fi was great and cable TV was unusually good with several channels. We were in a front site but we always use a small fan in the bedroom to use as "white noise" to drown out any outside noise.

This is truly a hidden gem. For RV travelers who are in search of a 1 night stay not far from the interstate, with no traffic noise and with all the extras, this is the place for you. The check-in staff was exceptional and friendly. We got an escort to our pull-through site. I had inquired about the possibility of fires and before you knew it free fire wood was delivered to our site. Our site was level, pull through and spacious. We were able to receive roof mounted satellite from our site. Our Verizon service was OK. Wish we could stay here longer than just an overnight stay, but we have obligations.

This park is a gem. If you want to just kick back and enjoy a restful stop while being serenaded by the river flowing over the rocks, this is the park for you. What a well kept secret. The park is very well maintained and the camp host is continually cleaning the bathrooms so they are immaculate. Speaking of the camp host, we have never stayed at a park that had a friendlier or more helpful host. Thank you for making our stay so special. The site was very spacious and level. We only had electric but there was a fresh water fill up location. Also, our site was paved asphalt. A local lumber company donates wood so we were able to enjoy a camp fire every night. There was no Wi-Fi and Verizon cell service was minimal. Due to the trees we were unable to use our roof mounted satellite. If we are in this area again we would definitely stay at this park.

Another fabulous Corp of Engineers park. This particular park is way up at the top of the list as it actually offers full hook ups. Everything you love about Corp parks is present here - paved roads; gravel, spacious, level sites; abundance of trees; close proximity to lake; manicured, immaculately maintained; friendly check-in staff; . We would definitely return here. A gem of a park!

Good little park for an overnight travel stop. Convenient to the interstate and didn't have a problem with road noise. The check-in staff was extremely accommodating to give us a site where we could use our roof mounted satellite. The campground roads were smooth and our site was level, but not very wide. Site was a pull-through and easy to maneuver for a big rig. The Wi-Fi was excellent. Didn't have any luck getting local channels with the antenna. Verizon signal was excellent. The rate stated is for Passport America.

Like the previous reviewer, a nice little basic campground for a 1 night stay. Very convenient to the interstate. We had previously made a reservation so payment was all ready made. We never saw a check in-person at the campground - just saw our site number on the chart. There are several long term campers there, but sites were neat and park well maintained. Our site was in the back part of the campground so we had a "view" of the storage area. Streets were not bumpy and site was level but very close to neighbors. Campground was easy to maneuver for a big rig. Even though only 3 miles from interstate we did not have any road noise. The park had great Wi-Fi. Verizon signal was excellent. We were able to use our roof mounted satellite. We were also able to get local stations with the antenna. Good overnight stop.

I agree with the previous review - the campground has a lot of potential but it needs a lot of work and TLC. If you want to visit the National Park, town of Medora and the Musical you don't have much of a choice. The roads were full of pot holes and the sites needed a lot more gravel. The sites are extremely small and you are very close to your neighbors. There are several trees, but we were able to find a site which would enable us to receive satellite. The Verizon service is excellent. A really good point about the park is that their Wi-Fi was excellent with a strong signal. The check in staff was young but helpful. We did not use the bathhouse as it was not convenient. It was located on the other side of the park. The only facilities on our side of the park were 2 porta potties.

I normally would not give a 10 to a park without water and sewer hookups but this state park is amazing!! It has as many facilities and programs as a national park. We had site 19 which was at the peak of the hill so we had decent Verizon cell phone service. However, due to the trees we were not able to get satellite. The site was level and spacious. There is plenty of room between each site. Keep in mind that you don't "check-in" at a specific location but just go to the site indicated on your reservation. As with the other posts, there is a reservation fee and a $15 entrance fee for our tow car. All the roads are paved and in good shape. Each staff member we had the pleasure of meeting was very helpful and courteous. Be sure to go on the ranger led wild life caravan program. He took us down a road that put us right in the middle of a herd of bison. What an awesome event!! This is a great location for all the fantastic places in the area (i.e. Mr Rushmore, Wind Cave NP, Jewel Cave NM, Devil's Tower, Deadwood, Spearfish Canyon Scenic Drive, all the scenic loop drives in the park, etc). Be sure to attend the nightly illumination program at Mt. Rushmore. It is unforgettable. We would definitely camp here again if we were in the area.

This campground is a dream come true. If only we could have campgrounds like this to stay in for all of our travels. The park is immaculately maintained. You feel very welcomed by the hospitality of the check in staff but also by the ambiance of the park. The roads and sites were highly maintained gravel. Lovely grass was between each site. There is a generous distance between each site. The site was level. The wi-fi was excellent, and we had a good Verizon cell signal. Satellite reception was ideal as there are very few tall trees in the park. Even though the campground is very convenient to the interstate, the road noise was minimal. We unfortunately could only stay 1 night as we had travel plans. Like my beginning statement, I wish there were more parks like this for our stays - it was convenient, immaculately maintained and had such a welcoming sense of ambiance. If we were in the area again we would definitely make this campground one of our stops.

We stayed at this campground as we were going to have some repairs done at HWH the next day. The check in staff was extremely friendly and helpful. If I could just rate the check in staff I would have given the park a 10. The park was very convenient to the interstate but the road noise was very noticeable. The site was grass, level, typical distance between sites and a pull through. The wi-fi was excellent and Verizon cell service was very good.

We really enjoyed this campground. Would have given it a 10 rating, but the showers and bathrooms could have been maintained and cleaned better. The staff was friendly. The park was well maintained. The streets are paved, and our site was also paved. The site was level. The distance between sites was very, very generous. There were several activities going in during the weekend. There was no wi-fi, and Verizon service was minimal. We would return to this park if we were in the area.

Vary nice campground. The check in staff was outstanding; very friendly and answered all of our questions happily. The clubhouse had a fine assortment of camping supplies plus a good size snack bar and beer on draft. We opted for a w/e pull through site which was on a bit of a slope - that is the only reason why I did not give the park a 10 rating. The distance between sites was comfortable. The wi-fi was excellent. Nice fire pit, and they had wood for sale. The showers are individual which is a definite plus. We would definitely return here if we were in the area.

This campground is now called River Road RV Park and Campground. We stayed here as we wanted full hooks ups to be able to do our laundry in the coach, have Wi-Fi, and cable TV so we could see an upcoming sporting event. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The roads and sites are gravel with quite a bit of grass growing between the rocks. Each site was level, had 50 amp, cable TV, sewer, fire ring and picnic table. When we first came, the grass was very high and needed to be cut. After 3 days the grass was mowed which made it much better. The Verizon cell service was excellent. The Wi-Fi in the park was very good and the cable TV channels were extensive. This park could be much better if more regular maintenance was given, ie: keep grass mowed and use of weed eater around structures. If you are looking for all the amenities, but the park is in need of some tlc, this would be the park for you. If we were here again, I would probably try to find another park.

We dearly loved our stay at this park. The view of Lake Superior is beyond words. The main roads were paved. Some sites had asphalt pads and some were grassy. Each site had a picnic table, fire ring, there was a good distance between each site and the sites were level. Verizon cell service was very weak. Due to the marvelous trees we were unable to use our roof satellite. There are no elaborate amenities (cable, 50 amp, Wi-Fi, sewer, water) but the natural scenery more than makes up for the lack of the extras. The campground was quiet and peaceful. We used it as a base to see Copper Harbor, Eagle River, Eagle Harbor, Calumet, Hancock and Houghton. We would definitely return to this park if we were in the area again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this park. It is right on Lake Superior which affords fantastic views and a great place to walk. The staff was awesome. Gave us good pointers for sightseeing and also went out of his way to contact a garage where we could have our oil changed. This is a great campground to use as a base for Pictured Rocks National Seashore. The streets in the park were concrete or gravel. The sites were gravel, fairly level and were of a comfortable size. The Wi-Fi was the best I have seen in quite awhile. There is no cable TV and we could not get any local TV stations. However, our satellite worked fine. We had superb cell phone service with Verizon. Since it is close to the highway there is a bit of road noise, but not enough to be a problem. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.

We used this park as an overnight stop. The check in staff was not very well informed. We had requested a cable TV site. We needed to move three times before we had a correct site with cable TV. The site was relatively clean but the grass needed to be cut. The main roads in the park were gravel. The sites are grassy and level and sufficient room between each site. The cable TV was very good but the Wi-Fi was spotty. There are several lovely trees in the park. The pool was closed as it was under repair. The park is very close to the highway so you can hear road noise.

We really enjoyed our stay at this state park. The site was clean and well maintained. The location of the park enabled us to tour the surrounding areas easily. We used this park as a base to tour the Falls (Upper and Lower), Whitefish Point and Sault Ste. Marie. The main roads in the park were paved. The sites are grassy and level and sufficient room between each site. We really enjoyed our pull through site. There were no advanced amenities (cable TV, Wi-Fi) but the beautiful trees made up for them. The restrooms were modern, clean and each shower area was private: a real plus. We attended fantastic ranger programs in the park. We would definitely come back here again.

If you are looking for an off the road, nature campground, this is the one for you. It is a small park but there are numerous hiking trails. Be sure to bring your mosquito spray. The site was clean. The location of the park enabled us to tour the surrounding areas easily. We used this park as our base to tour Mackinaw Island. The sites are grassy and level and sufficient room between each site. The electricity provided is just 20 amp. There were no advanced amenities (cable TV, Wi-Fi) but the beautiful trees made up for them. We would come back here again.

We camped here for 1 night as we were in transit. Wished the location could have been a bit closer to the interstate. The directions in the Passport America book were perfect. Did not encounter any staff person as it is self check in. The park was clean and sites were level. The WiFi was outstanding and well as the cable TV. Note that there is no pool which was fine with us. As a transit campground it fit our needs.

We love to come to Cane Creek. The roads are paved and the lake front sites are paved (even though some are not very level). Our favorite thing about this park is that it is lake front and you can have full sewer hookups. That is quite amazing as you typically have to be in a tent to get close to lake front. There are several very nice playgrounds in the park. The beach has a life guard on the weekend. Each site has it's own fire ring so you get to enjoy a fire, the fire fly's and gaze out at the lake. It certainly doesn't get any better than that. Also, there are several very nice, well maintained trails in the park. It is definitely worth a stay in this park.

When we are in this area we always like to stay at this campground. It has many varied sites ranging from gravel to asphalt paved sites. The sites are spacious and have lots of wonderful shade trees. The check in staff has always been extremely friendly and knowledgeable. There is also some nicely placed landscaped flower beds to really give it a resort touch. The pool was very clean and arm bands were issued so it was just campers that could use the pool. There are great areas to take your morning walk. Our only complaint is that most of the sites are not level.

This is a nice family campground. The staff was extremely helpful. The sites were level and reasonably spacious. It was very conveniently located. We stayed here for 1 night as we were traveling between destinations. Unfortunately, the pool was closed due to a leak.

We have mixed feelings regarding this campground. For the first 12 days we were in the campground we had a site relatively close to the sound. The sunsets were tremendous!! The sites were very tight, grass and sand, and level. The Wi-Fi at our first site was excellent. However, for our last 4 days we had to move to the front of the campground and the Wi-Fi was nonexistent. They need to make Wi-Fi available throughout the park as that is one of the amenities advertised! Also, the sites were very tight at our second location. Our site was 25' wide and the adjoining site was 20' wide. In fact, when a pop-up tried to maneuver into the neighboring site they eventually gave up as it was way too narrow, even for a pop-up. In the future we will look for another campground farther north. We feel this campground could have a lot of potential, but it needs lots of TLC and maintenance, starting with the roads that are full of potholes. Also, when camp sites are vacated there is virtually no cleanup or maintenance done prior to the next camper. For the most part the staff was friendly. The ladies were very cordial but the gentleman was always grumpy and didn't appear to want to be here.

The entrance to the park is very inviting and very well landscaped. However, once entering the park we found the sites were extremely close together, particularly for a state park. The site was level. WiFi is not available at your site but is available at ranger station and gift shop. The volunteer check in person was very nice and helpful. The cleanliness of the beach was very poor. There should be resources expended to keep the trash and litter down. The showers and restrooms were filthy: worst ever seen at a campground. If we return to Myrtle Beach, we will stay at one of the private campgrounds even though they are quite a bit more in price. We were counting the days till it was time for our previously paid site to get to our departure date.

This is a nice park. The check in staff was extremely friendly and the view of the river was tremendous. However, the site we had was carved into the mountain side and made it extremely unsafe to get to your basement compartments in your motor home. Also, there had been several days of rain so the acess road, dirt roads in the campground and our site were pot holed and water logged. Our leveling jacks were submersed in water. If the sites had not been carved into the side of the hill which made the water table so high we might not have had a site which had so much water on it that would not drain. The pool was not open yet and the lounge was merely an unheated garage area. We did not use the showers as we have a hard time understanding why you pay $40 a day and still have to pay additional money for a shower. Perhaps in a time when there is not rain it might be a nice place to stay.

The staff was very friendly and helpful at check in. All streets were paved. Sites were grassy and level although they were rather close together. There were several seasonals but all the rigs were up to date and well maintained. The pool was not heated so it was much too cold to swim. Also, the shower was metered which we have a hard time understanding @ a rate of $42 a night. All in all this is a very nice campground and we would definitely stay here again.

We came to this campground at the last minute as our site at the KOA was less than desirable. The staff was very friendly and helpful and took extra time to ensure that our site would be level. The roads were paved and the sites were grassy. Sites could have been a little larger. One of the best attractions was that the fire ring was a little area in the forest. So, you really felt like you were camping and the fire ring was surrounded by rocks so it looked more natural than just a tire ring. We stayed in the area which is on the river and we thoroughly enjoyed taking our chairs and books and just relaxing with the river right before us. We would definitely stay here again.

We very rarely camp at a KOA as they are usually over priced and sites are close together. However, this park had good reviews and has won several awards from the KOA Corporation. Unfortunately, we had a horrible experience here. The site we were assigned was extremely slanted. When we inquired back at the office for a level site we were told none of them are level. We did try another site but we could never level up. The manager did give us a full refund.

We have camped from coast to coast so we are very seasoned campers. This park is the perfect campground. It combines the camping wilderness atmosphere with the amenities we all come to enjoy. We had the opportunity to meet one of the friendly workers, Barb Pataki. She explained that Mr. King could not find a campground he liked so he created his own. Well, hats off to Mr. King because this is one tremendous campground. Chris checked us in and he couldn't have been more courteous and helpful. The booklet they have prepared answers any question you might have and gives valuable local information. It is the best check in information I have ever received. Whoever created the booklet did a tremendous job. The park itself had nice paved roads and fairly level sites. Our site had been freshly raked and fire pit all cleaned out. What a nice welcome that gives you. There is beautiful landscaping throughout the park which makes you feel like you are in a resort. They had several recycling points. There were several very nice walking paths also. There was a great adult center which had a lounge like a National Park Lodge. I agree with a prior review that they did not burden you with lots of silly rules. Also, there were no out dated seasonal rigs in the park. As you can tell, we cannot say enough good things about this park. The only negative is that the price is a little steep but you certainly get what you pay for.

We choose this campground based on the extensive advertising in Woodall's. What a big mistake!! First it started with the potholed dirt road we had to travel down to reach the campground and then the same condition of road continued throughout the campground. There were several permanent residents with extremely old trailers with makeshift porches and shelters. Our attempt to use the indoor heated pool was deterred as the pool was closed. We felt the $38 rate was rather high since it didn't include sewer, cable or Wi-Fi - just water and electric. One good point was that the sites were level. I would never camp here again, nor recommend this campground to a friend.

Sites were very close together and several extended stay sites. We camped here at the beginning of the season and several facilities were not quite ready (laundramat, ie). Wi-Fi was available at the office but at the site it was $10 a day. Rather steep in our estimation. We stayed here for a week but it was not mentioned to us that there was a weekly Wi-Fi rate which would have been much more reasonanable. Our biggest concern is for us Veterans. When we checked in I inquired if there were any discounts available and the response was that they give the best price to all customers. However, I later learned there is a military discount but you have to ask for it. Well, I don't quite understand that when I inquired about discounts, this wasn't mentioned. The manager did ultimately give us the military discount but as he said, "On the Cape you don't ask about politics, religion and the military." Wow, quite a slap in the face to the veterans who have sacrificed so many much for our country!
