We arrived just as rain started. Everyone of the sites are concreted, some level and some not so level. The grass seemed to me that it was a little too high. A lot of sites were "underwater" do to poor runoff. Everyone that worked there was great, friendly, and helpful. Some even swept the water off the sites. The restroom/shower areas were spotless. We will definitely come back.
This is one of the poorest campgrounds we ever stayed in. We knew we were getting in late, so the office lady said she'd leave paperwork on where to park by the office door. We never found any paperwork. We started looking around and finally found some pedestals with no wiring. After looking around some more, we found one with a 30 amp plug. There were no lights at all in the park. The next morning, the both of us went to the restrooms and found there were no toilet or paper towels. There was a sign on each door stating that due to theft, the management will not supply them. My wife said that there was a lady washing dishes in one of the sinks. We just cannot recommend anyone staying at this campground.
Getting to this park is a little tricky, but once here, well worth it. It's the closest park to Atlantic City. There are a lot of permanent trailers here. Our site was level both ways and close to the showers. The bath area is great. The only thing we could find wrong is that the office closes at 4:00 PM. We camped in a motorhome.
All the graveled sites were back-in. Ours was not level either front tp back or side to side. There was only one bathhouse for the whole campground. To get to the park, you have to travel on a narrow street, and you really have to watch for the turn onto the street between two "landmarks". We camped in a motorhome.
We stay here only because we have family here. This is owned by the city and not advertised. The telephone numbers listed is to city hall. The site is mainly used for people that come to our rodeo each year. The sites are all grass and pretty level. The showers are open rooms and the toilets are port-a-potties. This is a "boon dockers delight".
My wife and I always stay here on our trips to SE Iowa. The only thing I can find that's a negative is that there is no cable for TV and no real access to see the Mississippi River. The brush and trees have grown up too high to see any tugs and pleasure boats. The shower are combined with the toilets. Every time we've camped there, they have been exceptionally clean.
All the office staff were great!! They let me use the telephone several times, so I could get a new cell phone that I took into the pool. One dear office lady there even let me call my son for his birthday while mine was getting up and running. Most of the sites were very shaded. We did have a great problem, though. Our travel trailer, plus numerous others there, got "unindated" with ants!! We finally got them under control, however. We would camp there in another season when it wasn't so hot.
We stayed the for one night to see Elvis' boyhood home. We also went to the car museum, it being a greatplace to see antique cars of all makes and models. The sites were all gravel. The one we stayed in was too much, I believe. I had to raise one side up four inches. The restrooms and showers wer clean. The road to the park was badly needing repair with pot holes all along the two miles getting to the office.
My wife and I stayed there in the middle of the week in one of the hottest periods of the year. We did have partial shade from the sun. The pool was great for the fact that it was four feet deep. All sites were graveled with their own picnic tables. The four restrooms and showers were very clean. You could walk to the first levee and watch towboats gping up and down the Mississippi River. We would definitely stay there again.
Our campsite was not level, however, it was spacious. There are only 18 campsites. It would seem that the area could stand more of them. For anyone wanting to camp there, you would have to get reservations in early. Perhaps they're in future plans. The visitor center was 3 miles away from the campsites, and there weren't very many signs for directions. Stop and eat at the lodge. The food was great! The views of the fall colors were outstanding. Make sure you have a camera handy.
On the site where I parked my travel trailer, the asphalt edges were broken up pretty badly, I guess it was from all the rain. You had to watch your step getting in or out of the RV. The restrooms and showers were very clean. All the employees I talked to were very friendly and helpful.
Went to see the 3rd annual "Running of the Tubs" on May 17 in Hot Springs. The sites are all gravel and level. The only thing I saw that could be improved upon is that there are no things for children to do.
The individual camp site we were in was adequate. There were some sites that were very large. Most of the sites were not very level, however, it didn't take much to level our TT. All of the sites were very shady.
The restrooms and showers (in the area I stayed in) had solar hot water only. The showers I had were not warm. The last night I spent there, I used a shower located in a different camping area that had plenty of hot water. Other than the "cold" showers and not finding any diamonds, (darn it) it was great staying there.
We had some trouble locating this campground. Initially, signs did point you in the right direction. However, as we got closer, we missed several turns for lack of signs. The campground itself needed to be cleaned up a little better. The restrooms were pretty clean, but the showers needed doors for some privacy. They had curtains to show they were in use. Most of the sites were shaded. There was some playground equipment, but most of it was broken.
The managers are outstanding! I had phoned ahead, and the owner was waiting for me at my site number to assist in any way. Everything there was very clean. We visited with the owners to find out about the local area. They were very helpful.
This RV campground was great! My site was near the campground hosts. They were very friendly. Being that I had a new TT, I had some trouble with my TV antenna. He had a ladder for me to use to repair it. The whole area was clean and quiet.
