We camped here in a 40' motorhome on site C4. This is the newer section of the three sections of park. The interior roads and site pads are all asphalt and interior roads were easy to navigate. The site pad we were on (C4) was a large pull thru with plenty of room for motorhome and Jeep toad. Electric and water service were strong. We had a 2-3 bar Verizon cell phone signal and I was getting a 4G Millenicom WIFI signal. The only ding is that there are no shade trees in the campground [only Junipers] so it can get fairly hot during the daytime hours if you are trying to sit outside. The park is located about 15 miles from any reasonable grocery stores or places to eat. If you like boating or water sports, etc, the reservoir is available. The $16/night rate reflects our America the Beautiful Golden Age senior discount card pass rate. We would stay here again if in the area.

We stopped for one night and ended up staying for 2 months. We are full-timers and camped here in a 40' motorhome. The park is a wonderful example of a private park, and owners, that care about their customers. All of the campsites had mature shade trees of one form or other. The interior roads and pads were crushed gravel; interior roads were easy to navigate around on. The pads we stayed on were level. Electric and water were strong; Our nightly rate of $20/night reflects a monthly rate. Individual nightly rate was $37/night. They have a catch and release fishing pond and the campground is located on the Dolores River, so you can fly fish in the river, as well. There is a lot to do in the surrounding area, including "Jeeping" the many national forest roads in the area at up to 12,500' elevation, towns of Durango, Ouray and Telluride. We would definitely stay here again.

We camped here in a 40' rig. The interior roads and actual camping pads were asphalt. Interior roads were easy to navigate. The pads were wide and level. It was an OK price for a 30 amp W/E site. The views of the surrounding mountains and the actual reservoir were wonderful to look at. There was no shade trees in the park or at the sites, but, it cooled off very comfortably in the evenings and we were able to sit out and enjoy the evenings and stars. Electric and water service were strong. If you are a canoer or kayaker the reservoir looked like it had some calm quiet water to kayak in. You are located approximately 15 miles from any major food stores or restaurants. We would stay here again if in the area.

We camped here in a 40' motorhome. The first thing I want to say about the campground is that the picture they show on their web site of a typical pull-through campsite at the campground was not to be found in the campground we stayed in. What we found was a run down campground in need of a lot of aesthetic upgrade and clean up. All of the sites we saw were stacked side by side, way too close together, with some that actually limited the extension of awnings on RVs, etc, because of trees or neighbor camper vehicles so close to your RV. There were tenters that were allowed to erect their tents on regular RV sites in between regular RV units (?) do not understand that, at all. All sites were crushed gravel and dirt. The interior roads of the campground were rutted crushed gravel. There were weeds everywhere. We would not stay here again.

We arrived and were pleasantly surprised at the quiet, serene setting of the place. Located on the Salmon River with nice view of mountains the campground was spotless. Green, manicured grass pull-thru sites located in tall shade trees with plenty of space between sites. Water and electric worked well; CG internet worked pretty good. We had limited Verizon cell signal because we were in between mountains. There were local "pet" deer that roamed the CG freely and provided entertainment. The owner of campground was very pleasant. You are located about 8 miles from town of Salmon, ID which had a nice modern grocery store and several nice places to eat. You can drive up into the national forest with your off road jeep or 4WD vehicle and have a wonderful day trip. We would definitely come back and stay here again if in the area.

We stayed here in a 40' motorhome on site 072. Nice 100' pull thru with a nice lake view. The sites where we were had excellent spacing between them, but, again, check your particular site before reserving. Our Millenicom WIFI had 4G and Verizon 4 bars. The electric and water pressure were good. The one drawback I see with this particular park is that they are now using Volunteers instead of Contracted personnel on the front gate and because of this, you can no longer drive up without a reservation and get a campsite thru the front gate personnel; you have to call Recreation.gov and make your own reservations; this also goes for making any changes to an existing reservation; these Volunteers cannot get into the Corp of Engineers reservation computer system. We would definitely stay here again

We stayed here in a 40' motorhome. Park was easy to get around in; wide asphalt roads and sites. We had site 010 on the lake (Lake Waco). Ours was 50A FHU, but only about 25% of all of the sites in this campground have a sewer connection so be sure to check your particular site first if you need that extra utility. Electric and water were both strong; Our Millenicom WIFI internet signal was 4G and our Verizon cell was 4 bars strong. We were about 10 minutes from all restaurants and grocery activities. Overall, a nice park and we would stay here again if in the area.

Nice campground located in the Sam Houston NF bout 40 miles north of Houston. 50A FHU sites for $19 per night with Golden Age discount pass is a bargain. The park stays full, especially during the summer months so reservations are highly recommended. Lots of bike and walking trails in the NF. The electric power and water pressure were fine; asphalt pads and nice sitting areas. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. You need to eat at the Fish House on route 75 in New Waverly if you want a good home cooked local food place to eat.

This is a nicely laid out campground with nice spacing between sites; concrete pads. The 50 amp electric power and water pressure were right on target. Nice walking trails, not a lot of tree cover yet in the FHU site areas. We would definitely stay here again.

Good for an overnighter. North of Tyler about 5 miles. Electric power was strong as was the water pressure. Not a lot to do around here. Rate reflects Passport America. Would stay here again if in the area and needed a place to stay.

This is our 2nd time staying here. It's convenient traveling south out of Memphis. We stayed in site 01; the interior roads are wide asphalt and very maneuverable; the pads are poured concrete; you need to watch for out of level or sloping sites, especially near the water; The 50A electric and water pressure were fine; restrooms and showers were clean; Our rate reflects "off season" rates from 11/1-3/31 with Golden Age discount. You can't beat $6/night! The nearest town with stores and restaurants is Bateville which is 10 miles away. We would stay here again.

It lived up to it's reviews! We stayed here in a 40' motorhome on site B32 and then D9. Both were excellent. Interior roads were asphalt, wide and easy to maneuver; pads were asphalt and level; 50A electric and water were both good; restrooms were clean, showers were OK. Lot's of shade trees. Walking and bicycling was easy. Malls and stores within 5-6 miles. Our rate reflects Golden Age discount. Best sites are A15-18;B30-34;B3-6 & D9. Would definitely come back again. Reservations recommended, it gets busy on weekends and I'm sure in the summer time.

We stayed here on site 39 (a pull thru). Electricity and water pressure were good. Sites are crushed gravel and our site was level. We could get a satellite signal and 4G Verizon MIFI and a good Verizon cell signal. You can hear I-25 freeway traffic and an occasional train whistle. We did not use the restrooms or showers. We would stay here again if passing thru this area.

The campground is a large crushed gravel lot with around 130 pull thru sites with either 30A or 50A FHU whichever you ask for. Sites were level and electricity and water pressure were good. No shade at any of the sites. Spacing between sites was OK. Verizon cell signal was good. My Verizon MIFI was 4G. I could get a good satellite signal for Direct TV and got most local channels with my on board antenna. We would stay here again if we were passing thru Rawlins.

Excellent park for the value. We camped here on site 83 (a nice pull thru site). Electricity and water pressure were good. We could get Direct TV but no local antenna channels at our site. Good Verizon cell signal but only got a 3G Verizon MIFI signal. All sites are level crushed stone. Grounds are kept quite clean; some Juniper tree shade at most sites. Rate reflects a Passport America 50% discount. We would definitely stay here again.

A wonderful county park campground. We camped here in a 40' motorhome with toad. The sites a large and plenty of green space between sites. We were on site A20. Interior roads were wide paved asphalt and easy to maneuver around; pads were also asphalt. Many of the sites are 50 amp full hook up, but they do have some 30 amp, so check first. Bathrooms and showers were very clean. We got good Verizon cell service, 4G Verizon MIFI and satellite signal. They have a nine hole disc golf course in park. Located on the Ririe Reservoir they have ramps for launching your boats for boating and fishing. The park is about 15 miles from Idaho Falls, which has many good restaurants and shopping stores. We would definitely return again when in the area. Our rate reflects a $2 discount for seniors; normal rate for 50 amp full hook ups is $18/night (a deal!)

We camped here in a 40' motorhome with toad in the South campground loop area in site 115. We chose the South campground loop over the North loop because of larger sites with more green space between sites, plus it is a newer addition to the campground. Interior roads and pads were asphalt wide and easy to get the bus around in. Verizon cell and MIFI were marginal and could not get satellite signal because of mountains in southwest direction blocking signal. Electric was strong. No water or sewer at sites, but they have a dump station across the street from the entrance. This campground is quite isolated from any close town, so you need to bring your supplies with you. We would use this campground again for a stop over, but not a destination campground.

Another excellent South Dakota State run campground on the Lewis and Clark Lake. We stayed here in a 40' motorhome with toad on site 125. This is a large campground with several loops. There is quite a bit of green space between campsites and our site was facing the lake with a huge amount of green space to the rear of our motorhome. Verizon cell and MIFI worked well, but could not get satellite signal because of trees. Interior roads were asphalt and plenty wide to get around; pads were asphalt, as well. Electric and water were strong. We would definitely come back to this one again. Yankton was about 7 miles away and you can get all your supplies and several good eating places in town.

What a nice campground located in a large stand of cottonwood trees. We stayed here in a 40' motorhome with toad on site P53. This has to be the best site in the park, right on the lake on a point with very good green space between you and the next site. Wide asphalt interior roads, no low hanging tree branches, level asphalt pads, Verizon cell and MIFI worked well. Could not get satellite because of the trees. My rate reflects Golden Age discount. Restrooms and showers were clean. We would definitely stay here again. About 7 miles to Yankton where you can get all of your supplies and several nice eating places.

We stayed here in a 40' motorhome. The location of campground is nice. Most sites are gravel. The electric and water were both strong. Verizon cell service and MIFI were marginal. Could not get a satellite signal because of a tree in the way. A real ding from my standpoint is, if you ask for a full hookup site they cram you all back together with very little room between sites for sitting out and they don't have fire rings in any of the full hook up sites. If you ask for only electric and water you need to ask for one of the sites along the river, they are the best value and they have fire rings.

A nice easy on/off off I-80 to this campground. We camped here in a 40 footer plus toad on site 24. 50A E/ only at sites however the water spigots were plentiful in the park and were located within 25' of your site, so you could take on water. Concrete pads and good asphalt interior roads. A fair amount of green between sites; plenty of trees in the south loop which is sites 1-25 and are FCFS only; the other 24 or so site in the north loop can be reserved ahead on time. Verizon cell and our MIFI worked well; couldn't get satellite because of trees. Bathrooms and showers were very clean. We paid $8/night which is a Golden Age rate (good deal). We would stay here again.

St. Joseph County Fairgrounds has approximately 30 RV sites available on their property for rent out when there is no large event scheduled at the fairgrounds. The sites are grass with a fair amount of spacing in between sites. The electric and water pressure were fine. My Verizon cell and MiFi worked fine. I could not get a satellite signal because of a tree. Some sites have some shade. The location is convenient to South Bend and Elkhart. With so few choices for campgrounds in the area this wasn't too bad. We would stay here again.

What a "jewel" of a find for a campground a few miles north of Indianapolis. We stayed here on site 94 in a 40' motorhome and toad. Easy maneuvering in the CG; wide asphalt interior roads and new concrete extra wide pads. Verizon cell and our MiFi worked well. Could not get satellite signal because of trees. Friendly staff. We definitely would stay here again.

Easy access off of I-65; we camped here in a 40' motorhome and toad. We did not have to unhook. Stayed in site 7. Electric and water pressure were good. Gravel sites; Verizon cell and MiFi worked fine. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would stay here again.

Older State Park CG. We stayed here in a 40' motorhome on site 38. It was level and large enough. Our $13 rate was based upon senior discount. Lots of overhanging tree branches on main roads into campground area, so be ready to dodge them. Asphalt main roads and concrete campsite pads. Water pressure and electricity were fine. Verizon phone service was 1-2 bars, my MIFI worked well. I was able to get satellite service for DirecTV on our site. I would camp here again if in the area. Not a destination campground.

Park is remote, typical COE with excellent shade and good spacing between sites; interior roads paved and easy to negotiate in a 40' motorhome. Sites were asphalt and many were terraced. Internet and Verizon cell were difficult to get because of trees and remoteness of park. Rate reflects Golden Age discount. Bathrooms and showers were in excellent condition and clean. We would stay here again.

We camped here in a 40' motorhome: interior roads were paved and easy to negotiate, pads were concrete. They have three loops and the sites on loop A and B seemed to have more spacing between them than in loop C; lots of trees which made getting satellite signal difficult. Verizon cell phones worked fine, we stayed in site 34. Rate reflects Golden Age discount. CG has laundry facilities. We would stay here again if in the area.

Camped here in a 40 foot coach. Interior streets paved, very wide and easy to maneuver around in. All pads are poured concrete double wide with plenty of room for motorhome and toad. Pads were more level away from the lake. Approximately 50% of sites are first come first serve. Park is well manicured; trees can make satellite reception difficult without a remote dish. This park is up there as one of the nicer COE parks we have stayed in. We would definitely stay here again.

Interior roads and sites paved and easy to navigate with the motorhome. Heavy tree cover made satellite service impossible to get. A quiet campground; park was not busy at all. We were on site 051. Sites tend to slope either toward road or rear so significant leveling may need to take place depending on site. We would consider returning to stay here again.

Wonderful CG. Several sites that accommodated our 40' rig. Because of trees, it was hard to get a good look at satellite. Paved sites and streets; easy to manuever. Clean restrooms and showers. Rate reflects Golden Age discount. Can't beat the price for NF with FHU. Most weekends they are full, so reserve early. Would definitely come back again.

What a find! Located about 5 miles off of I-20 in Kisatchie NF. We camped here on site #17. Quiet, lots of trees, interior streets easy to navigate with a big rig, paved sites, some with lake front view. Best sites are #15,16,17, and 20). Half of the sites are first come first serve and the rest are reservable. Would definitely stay here again. Our rate was Golden Age.

Typically a nice COE park except for the restrooms which were not up to COE standards as far as we were concerned. We stayed in site #12. Quiet, paved streets and sites. When coming in take Rt 777 to Rt. 155 to park rather than Rt 156. Satellite is iffy on many sites because of trees. Would stay here again.
