The rate is $20.50 per day but you also need to pay a daily access fee of $4.20. If you are going to stay at least 6 days, then a annual park pass for $24 is the way to go. We camped in the Scott Creek campground. Previous reviews said that the park was clean. I disagree. No one cleaned up after their dog so there was dog waste all over the campground. The campground seemed very trashy with plastic bags and paper in the weeds, cigerette butts and bottle caps all around the campsite. There was one campsite near the lake where the bushes had been used as a bathroom as evidencd by lots of toilet paper all over the ground. I was staying here to visit my son in Olathe. Next time I'll look for another place to stay.
This was the second Kansas State Park I've stayed at. I was in the Frontier loop. Again the park seems trashy. Bits of paper and trash around and the mowers run over the larger pieces of trash making a lot of small trash. I guess a "Premium" site is one that has sewer other wise there isn't much to make a site "Premium". There are a lot of construction workers in this loop. Evidently you can lease a site for 6 months. So much for the 14 and 28 day rule. This place is good for stopping for just a night or two.
Most of the sites in this campground are taken by seasonal campers. There are only 29 sites for travelers. Even though we paid the full hookup rate we did not have cable TV at our site. Over the air we only received 2 channels. The road to our site was narrow and very bumpy. This was ok for an overnight stop.
There is good and bad about this campground. The good: there is a new section that has been opened that will handle big rigs and has 50A electrical and full hookups. This campground is within 30 miles of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The bad. The Wi-Fi in the new area was slow the further from the office you got. Another repeater is needed for the new section. Visitors are charged $5 each unless they are there less than 30 minutes. The first time I called I was quoted full price for Saturday and the Passport rate for Sunday through Wednesday. At check-in the full price was for Saturday and Sunday and the Passport discount for Monday through Wednesday. I agree with the previous poster that the management needs to honor the mistakes of their employees (children?). We would not stay here again.
This is a good campground to stay in to visit the Bangor area and attractions. This is an adult only park. We had a back in site without sewer. We would have stayed another day or two but the campground was fully booked. There is a restaurant next to the campground with reasonably priced meals and specials. We would stay here again.
After staying at another Carefree Resort, we were very disappointed by this park. Calling it a resort is a bit of a stretch. We had made a reservation, and I stated that we have a 39’ 5th wheel. At check-in we were assigned to a site that was too small for our rig, and the road split around a couple trees that prevented us from even attempting to maneuver into the site. When I went to request another site, the desk staff acted like I had not let them know the size of our rig, and I could see the list of arrivals on the desk with our rig size on it. When we made the reservation, a credit card was required to hold a site. At check-in we were not credited for the deposit which required a phone call to get a refund. Overall the office doesn’t seem to know what size sites are available or what size they are. If we had stayed at this Carefree resort first, we would not have stayed at another. We will not stay here again.
This is a very nice park with full hook-ups. Over-the-air TV reception does fade in and out though. The bathrooms are very clean and look very new. There are only 30 camp sites so it is best to make a reservation. There are several trails for hiking. We would stay here again.
We were surprised that an RV park this size could be so nice. At check-in staff were pleasant, and we were escorted to our site. The site was a pull-through and very spacious with 20/30/50 electric, water, sewer, and cable TV. Everyone in the park was very friendly. The park has a mixture of permanent, long term, and transient campers. Carefree Resorts has done a nice job with this park.
We have stayed at this campground 3 times in the past 3 years. With each visit it seems that the campground deteriorates more. A previous reviewer stated that, “This is our weekend get-a way.” It is more like a weekend party park for locals. On our last visit there were a couple of groups that were loud after quiet hours. If there are any Florida State games being played, the situation gets worse. In talking with the camp hosts we were told that the Rangers don’t enforce the campground rules. The sites are mostly sand and un-level with very little grass. Of the 3 loops, Sandhill has the best sites but the worst restrooms. Turkey Oak is only for tents and pop-ups or small RV’s. Lakeview has the best restrooms but probably the worst sites. As a previous poster stated, we hope the Park Service reads these reviews. We will most likely not stay here again.
This is a nice park with lots of trees. When you call, make sure to give them the size of your rig as they only have a few that will accommodate big rigs. There are a few trees you need to watch for, but we were able to get pass them. There are some mountain trails and a trail that goes around the lake. The pool looked clean but closes after Labor Day. It's very quiet and peaceful. Lexington is about 12 miles and there is a lot to see there. Make sure you get the visitor's guide.
Passport America rate. This campground is between two interstates: I-40 and I-240 so you listen to traffic noise all night long. If you need a place to stop overnight, then this place is ok and then only at a discounted rate.
Passport America rate. The pool, cafe and game room are only open on the weekend. Wi-Fi cost $5 for two days and is only good for one computer. If you have a second computer, then you have to pay another $5 ($3 for one day). Wi-Fi charges are not noted in the Passport guide. We were in section C and sites are packed in tightly. This campground is only good for an overnight stay at the Passport rate. The $40 per day normal rate is way too high. We will not be making a repeat appearance at this campground.
This was a very nice park, but we thought the price of $25 for Friday and Saturday night was excessive for only having electric. Sunday through Thursday was $17 per night. There was also a $7 entrance fee for non-residents. Indiana residents paid a lower fee.
Even though this park is run by the county, it is located on Ft. Pickett and used mostly by long term military personnel stationed there. There are very few sites available for temporary campers. They are various sizes and not level. There are showers and restrooms available in one of the old barracks, with a port-a-potty located in the campground. There is also an old playground that hasn't been maintained. We stayed here for 2 weeks so we could visit our daughter who works on Ft. Pickett and lives nearby. There were no other campgrounds within 50 miles that could accommodate our 35' fifth wheel.
This would be a nice park if it wasn't across the street from a rock quarry that starts work at 7AM. It generated a lot of noise and dust. Also, the park is located on State Road 627, which is a cut through between Richmond and Winchester, KY. There were a lot of semi's using this road with Jake Brakes on. This was at all hours of the day or night. We spent 4 nights at this park because we didn't know about the above. We wouldn't stay at this park again.
This is an excellent campground and we are looking forward to making a return visit. We were able to use our Passport America rate for the 17 nights that we were there. The owners were very friendly and did whatever was needed to make our stay enjoyable. FYI: the campground is separate from the horse camp.
