Huge park with lots of level pull-through sites. Utilities were good including Wi-Fi. There's really no shade, so in hotter weather this place could get pretty warm. While we were here, we had a huge thunderstorm with several inches of rain, so dust was not a problem. Friendly staff helped point us to the best attractions around the colonies.

Level sites and good utilities. We were escorted to our pull-through site by the very friendly owner who recommended things to do in the area. Nice path around the lake for walking in pleasant surroundings. Great spot for one night or several. We would stay here again if we find ourselves back in this area.

There's nothing very fancy here but it's fairly priced. We paid $27 per night for two nights with a Good Sam discount. Utilities were all fine and the laundry facility is decent (I got lots of laundry done while my wife spent a day at the quilt museum). Our site was along the side of the park facing an auto auction, and we were there during an auction day. There was tons of traffic passing in front of our rig all day long kicking up loads of dust. There appear to be quite a few permanent/semi-permanent residents at this park which always brings my rating down, but the staff is very friendly.

This campground is a bit on the spartan side but the views and surrounding countryside are spectacular. This is a wonderful spot for some quiet and tranquility. The owner is friendly and helpful and quite interesting to talk with. At the time of our stay there were no laundry facilities but I believe there were plans to add them. It seems a bit pricey for the amenities (or lack thereof) but we would stay here again.

We've stayed here a couple of times and had two completely different experiences. During our first stay we had gorgeous weather and a spacious, level site with 50 amp and full hook-ups and a view of the lake. This time, we had a very sloped site away from the lake and only water and 30 amp electric. Our AT&T cell service was practically non-existent.

We reviewed this park in October of 2009 and gave it an 8, but this stay was not as good or maybe we just expect more value for our money after three years of full-timing. This is a beautiful park in a beautiful part of the country but we found the park staff to have a bit of an attitude and not very helpful. Voltage at our power pedestal wasn't very good, the park Wi-Fi was non-existent at our site and you can forget using your cell phone if you're on AT&T. This park is showing its age and good use some serious updating. For 54 bucks a night, I expect more.

We stayed three nights in this unique little park and appreciated the friendliness of the owners, a level concrete site, pretty landscaping and a nice picnic table. Our cats really enjoyed watching the park chickens parade by our rig a couple of times a day, and the crowing roosters early in the morning weren't as bothersome as I thought they might be.

We chose to stay here primarily because friends were workcamping at this park. It's a great spot to spend a night or two, it's close to the interstate but you don't hear much traffic noise. But it's really not much of a "resort." Electric was good but we were told the Wi-Fi wasn't working. The laundry was little more than a couple of old and dirty machines on the back porch of the office building. This isn't our cup of tea and I doubt we'd stay here again.

At the time of this writing, we have reviewed 115 RV parks and only awarded two with ratings of "ten". Looking back, those two "tens" don't even compare with Bella Terra. Sites are beautiful; restrooms, showers, laundry are spotless, workout facility and clubhouse are magnificent. The staff here really understand that they are in the hospitality business and the staff are wonderful and do everything they can to make Bella Terra a special place. At a monthly rate of $800, it was a real bargain too, although I wouldn't be surprised to see their rates go up. We'll still come back.

For us, this park is fine for a night or two, but it has a lack of any real energy and it's not very close to recreation or shopping. Most of the sites are on grass and they get really sloppy when it rains. The people are friendly and the price is right, but we probably won't come back.

We arrived here planning to spend a few nights and ended up staying for two weeks. Our site was spacious with good 50 amp power, Wi-Fi, nearby laundry and beautiful surroundings. The camp hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. Lots of hiking and biking in the park and Mandeville is just minutes away. We look forward to our next stay here.

This park has great 50 amp power, good cable TV, pretty surroundings and perhaps the most level site we've ever parked in. The owner has a very laid back management style that takes some getting used to, but Mark is extremely accommodating and his personality is part of the character of the place. We were here for the Christmas Eve bonfires along the river that were really a blast. There's lots to do in the area--plantation tours, interesting little restaurants, etc. and it's only about an hour from New Orleans. Mark's tour of the Poche house was interesting as well. If we're in the area again, we would definitely stay here.

We stayed for a total of 6 nights: 3 in the Cedar Ridge campground and 3 nights in the Walnut campground. This is a beautiful park with some great camping facilities and it's close to Lawrence for shopping and sightseeing. We had 50 amp pull-through in Cedar Ridge, but moved to Walnut and had 30 amp but a much prettier back-in campsite. It's especially peaceful here late in the season.

Like most of the Texas State Parks that we have stayed in, this one has a friendly staff and well-maintained sites. During our 5 night stay there were very few other campers so we had our choice of sites but during summer months this place is probably pretty tight. Only 30 amp power is available, no sewer hookups and many of the sites don't appear to be very level but the price is right!

We're big fans of Texas State Parks and this one is no exception. Staff is friendly, surroundings are beautiful and it's close enough for easy drives into Austin to see the sights. Like many of the Texas parks we've been in, some of the sites are not very level, but we had our choice since it's not very busy in mid-December. Our last time in Austin we stayed at Lone Star but this suits us much better. We will definitely be back.

This RV park is easy on and off of I-35W but that's the best thing I can say. There's no Wi-Fi, no picnic tables, no showers/restrooms, no laundry and the sites are very tight. Most of the tenants appear to be construction workers, so you can expect lots of diesel pickup truck traffic through the park. This is the only RV park I've ever seen with a 20 mph speed limit, and still no one obeys it.

We stayed here for two full weeks, so I think we got a pretty good feel for the park and its management. First, the positive. In the ownership end where we stayed, the sites are spacious and very well landscaped. Power and water were both good. On the negative side. When the park was full, the Wi-Fi was pretty spotty. The restrooms and laundry were so filthy we wouldn't use them. We took our laundry into town. It's clear that the management cannot decide what direction to take. The older section seems neglected in favor of the ownership end where they've begun to build "casitas" which are simply big, ugly boxes. But the biggest complaint we have about Portal is the attitude of the the "Managing Partner." The park has a lot of rules, but apparently, if you are a regular customer, you are exempt from them regardless of how it might inconvenience others. We will not be back.

This is a nice little park in the middle of Cortez and very convenient to Mesa Verde and Four Corners as well as shopping and restaurants. But this is no RV resort and if you want large, grassy sites and a pool, you'll have to look elsewhere. Staff was friendly, Wi-Fi was great and we really enjoyed the city park across the street. Nice, clean laundry but then it better be. It's closed from noon till three for cleaning. A bit inconvenient. Our stated rate was based on their weekly pricing.

This is a beautiful campground far enough from the city to see tons of stars at night but close enough to Santa Fe and other attractions to keep busy for quite a while. The family who operates Sante Fe Skies is great and they keep the laundry, restrooms and showers immaculate. Our site had gorgeous views with a concrete patio and picnic table and was large enough to accommodate our 40 foot motorhome and Jeep. We discovered that April is not really a good time to be in Sante Fe though, at it can be extremely windy. Our nightly rate was based on their monthly price.

This KOA is a bit pricey but the staff is friendly and facilities are nice and clean. It's not too far from Carlsbad Caverns and the city of Carlsbad had everything we needed. The gravel sites were long and level but there was very little shade. Next time in the area we'd like to try the nearby state park.

This gem was a great find for us. It's not often that a state park with such reasonable rates has space for our 40 foot motorhome and cable TV to boot! Our site was a bit unlevel and had a long and uphill run to the sewer hook-up but those are minor inconveniences for such a beautiful setting. There's lots to do in the area and we enjoyed breakfast at the restaurant twice during our 6-night stay. The rangers we met were exceptionally friendly and helpful.

Our disappointment with this park began at check-in when the person at the counter couldn't tell us what our rate was. He had to check with the manager. The weekly rate we ended up with was higher than what we were originally quoted because we were there in the middle of spring break. The manager had a very arrogant attitude about the whole thing. Fifteen minutes after arriving at our site the electric went out for about half the park and temps were in the 90s. It was only off for about an hour and we ran our generator but the ordeal made us hesitant to leave our pets alone for very long during the heat of the day during our week-long stay. I made two trips to the men's room and found it dirty and without hand soap both times. The laundry looked as if it was once very nice but it was dirty and there was lots of empty space where many of the washers and dryers once had been. This "resort" has a real ghost town feel to it. It's flat, windy and dusty. When we left, there were only about 6 rigs left in the whole place. It looks like it was once very nice but is now sad and neglected.

We stayed here for a week and were pleasantly surprised by this RV park and the town of Alpine. The park had some nice shade trees, level sites and the staff was very friendly. Good Wi-Fi and decent laundry facility. Some of the sites had concrete patios which would be a real plus as it can be a bit dusty here.

After battling the wind all day we were worn out when we checked into this little place. We received such a friendly welcome, it perked us right up! Our site accommodated our 40 footer just fine. As others have mentioned, the water was a stretch, but not a concern. We enjoyed this friendly, quiet spot and will return the next time we pass this way.

Great location on the “peaceful side of the Smokies”, just minutes from the NP. Plenty of shade with nice ambiance along the river. Sites are tight and the place is pretty busy this time of year, especially on weekends. Our site was shaded by a walnut tree which bombed us with fruit during our stay. Tiny laundry has only four washers, and only one of them has hot water. Cable was good. Wi-Fi was strong. AT&T cell service was non-existent. (Not the park’s fault, of course, but important to know.) Entrance is a bit tight, so swing wide because it’s more than a 90 degree turn. Entry can get congested quickly, but the cheerful KOAers are quick to come out to greet arrivals and send them to their assigned spots. We paid three different nightly rates. Would like to see a weekly rate, but when you have a CG this close to a NP apparently there’s no need to offer customer-friendly pricing.

This definitely looks like a campground coming back to life. As others have said, interior roads are tight, but we took it slow with our 40-footer and did just fine. Our back-in site was long and spacious, although power and water connections were on the curb side, which made them a stretch. Easy highway access with minimal highway noise. Wi-Fi was strong. Cable would be a welcome addition, especially at this price. On a hot day the voltage got so low our surge protector tripped. Staff was cheery and helpful.

This is a nice, small, family owned and operated campground with easy freeway access that’s just far enough away that traffic noise isn’t a problem. It’s well-designed, with overnighters and long-termers in separate sections. Everything seems well kept. No Wi-Fi, but AT&T 3G was strong. Our pull-through was narrow and spartan, but level and quite adequate for an overnight. The afternoon shade was most welcome. We look forward to returning next month so we can make time to see the quilting museum.

We made this a quick stopover on a 900-mile two-day trek on I-70. We appreciated the easy freeway access and proximity to Pilot. Signage could be a bit clearer. We thought we had missed a turn, but we didn’t. Swing wide as you approach the office, as the turn is a bit tight around the building. Our pull-through was long and level. Plenty of shade and we still got satellite. We were up and on the road early, so we didn’t take advantage of other amenities. If we find ourselves in need of an overnight in the area in the future, we would definitely stop again.

One word describes this campground: Peaceful. The setting is lovely. It’s very easy to relax here. Sites are spacious and level. Power was solid. No Wi-Fi, but it’s definitely in the plans as soon as it’s available in the area. It’s a short drive to “town” and many sights to see. Our week long stay was cut short by a family emergency, and the friendly staff was very accommodating and understanding. We look forward to returning when our travels bring us back to this beautiful part of the country.

This park isn’t fancy, but it definitely works. Owner is very pleasant and accommodating. We had plenty of room to maneuver our 40-footer in this small park. Our back-in site was spacious and spot on level. Power was good and Wi-Fi was strong. The location is excellent for exploring the falls. We would definitely return.

We were non-members in this membership park, so our rate was pricey. This seems like a place that was once very pretty, but these days is feeling like it’s past its prime. Sites are unlevel and it can be a stretch to reach power and water hookups. Trees definitely need trimming. With some work, this could be a real gem. But, at this price, we likely will not return.

What a find! Our friends who live nearby recommended this park to us and we’re so glad they did. We could only spend a couple of nights, but we enjoyed it so much we wish we could have stayed longer. Camp hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Our site was level and spacious enough for our 40-footer and Jeep. The day use park along the lake is just steps away, making this bargain spot extra scenic. We won’t say any more because we want to be able to have a spot available when we return!

The purpose of our two-night stay was to visit the island. So, this spot gave us great access for that. We rode bikes to town and the ferry, so we wouldn’t have had to unhook our Jeep. But, we did because our pull-through wasn’t long enough for both. Sites were tight, but ours was level. Wi-Fi was strong and power was good. Because of the convenient location, we would probably stay here again if we plan another trip to the island.

After reading previous reviews, we expected this mat-phobic park to be green and lush. It wasn’t. Our “green” space was so weedy and dirty we really needed to put out our small mat, but we opted to follow the rules. Speaking of rules, this place does have a lot, but that didn’t really bother us, until the owner came out of nowhere as we were filling a small bucket of water to wash our windshield. She “reminded” us that no rig washing was allowed, and when we assured her we were just going to clean the swarm of dead UP bugs off our windshield she didn’t apologize. The voltage was so low that it got scary. We must have been in a “lucky” site as we were able to pickup Wi-Fi during its limited hours of operation. AT&T cell service was sketchy. To top things off, two little campers from across the way frequently knocked on our door wanting to be entertained. This place might have been fine for one night. But after staying for five, we wore out our welcome and won’t be returning.

GPS led us to the exit of this park, which meant driving several miles down a narrow road to find a neighborhood where we could turn around. This is a very popular spot, so the place gets busy, especially on summer weekends. Sites are tight, but adequate for our 40-footer. There’s plenty of green space close by to stretch out and enjoy the lake. The constant rumble of logging trucks passing by our front window all day got old quickly. We came here to meet up with friends, and would return for that. But, if we’re on our own we’ll look for another spot.

We arrived on a very hot day, and this park was having a problem with power. We volunteered to take a W/E site instead of the full hookup we’d reserved as we were told it was not on the problem circuit. Voltage was scary until the heat broke. Other than that, the place was quiet and peaceful. No satellite from our shady site, but we picked up Madison stations over the air just fine. Close to Walmart and easy highway access. Nice location for exploring the area. We would return, if traveling during cooler weather.

Winnebago Service sent us to the rally grounds to overnight. But, there were too many coaches trying to squeeze into too few sites. So, we left that chaos for this peaceful city park. And, we’re so glad we did! Our site was level, shaded and we still got satellite. We met several friendly fellow Winnie owners and really enjoyed the peace and quiet of this lovely park. Too bad we had to get up early to go back to service! The dump station in this park is huge!! We’ll definitely stop here again.

We were looking for a decent overnight spot with easy access for our 40 footer, level site, good power and WiFi. We found it all and then some, so we decided to spend two extra nights. This park is well cared for and surprisingly quiet, being so close to the highway. Mitchell had everything we needed to stock up. And, we loved the Corn Palace! We highly recommend this park, and hope there’s room the next time we pass through.

This place is for sale and it shows. Everything is tired. Cable TV was basically non-existent and nobody seemed to care enough to fix it. They don’t go to the post office to pick up the mail everyday, which nearly cost us a delay in our travels. Breakfast was not a particularly good deal, though everything was tasty. Laundry was the most expensive we’ve seen. Our site was spacious for our 40 footer, but neighboring sites were fairly tight. Good location for exploring area attractions. But, next time we'll find a different spot.

When we planned our overnight stop here we thought we’d wander up to the visitor’s center. But, with this view, why bother? To be at the foot of a monument such as this is quite a treat. Pull-through site accommodated our 40-footer easily, was level and with recent rains interior gravel roads were a bit rough. This is the best way to see Devils Tower.

This park had everything we needed for a comfortable overnight. Cheery staff, smoking hot WiFi and a nicely appointed long and level site. Our 40-footer fit easily. A bit pricey, but worth it. As America’s oldest KOA this park is aging nicely and has stayed up to date. We will return.

The big thing this park has going for it is the setting. It sits in a sage meadow surrounded by beautiful mountains. So, that’s hard to beat. We were welcomed at check in and told repeatedly “Anything you need, just ask!” Later, when we asked at the office for the one thing we needed and their website offered, the response at the office was “NO!” The situation was remedied, but there’s definitely a disconnect. The setting is usually quiet, but many guests bring their ATVs along, so that can be a bit annoying. We paid for a premium spot with a gorgeous view, only to have overflow rigs and vehicles park and be stored in the way, making our high-dollar spot less than premium. As others have mentioned, sites are tight on one side. Ours was so tight we heard the sound effects while our neighbors watched movies. We came here knowing there is no cable or AT&T reception. Satellite worked fine and we could get AT&T 3G a half-mile or so away. The owners have made an honorable effort to provide Wi-Fi, but it was slow and out of service for awhile during our stay. With many seasonal and long-term residents, the laundry room is always busy and obviously too small. It would help to have it open in the evening. Price reflects a monthly rate, which at $700/mo is a bit steep. But, apparently, that’s the price you pay for being 20 miles outside West Yellowstone in the Summer.

This gravel parking lot just off I-80 has long narrow pull-throughs for overnighters. Wi-Fi was strong. Other than that, we didn’t stay long enough to see or do anything else. If we need an overnight spot next time we’re passing through, we will probably stop again.

Great access to downtown Napa and the Silverado Trail. The park appears to have been recently refurbished, with plans to add a few more sites in the future. Check in was easy and we were escorted to our site. Site was wide, long and level with green space between us and our neighbors. Wi-Fi was strong. Satellite reception was fine. The park was full every night during our mid-week stay, so reservations are essential. If you’re coming in from the south, the entrance is a sharp left turn. Consider waiting for traffic to clear and turning into the exit lane, which is a much easier turn.

As others have said, if you need to stay in the East Bay, this is your only choice. Sites are narrow. We had to stretch our power cable to reach the pedestal, which was on the curb side of the MH. If English is your first language, over-the-air TV is non-existent, but satellite reception was fine. Wi-Fi was iffy, as was AT&T cellular service. No bathrooms or laundry. You’re also subject to whatever is going on at the fairgrounds. During our stay, it was a dog show, which meant sharing the park with barking and howling hounds day and night. Pleasanton is a nice town with several tasty eateries nearby. If we come back to the Bay Area, we’ll probably stop here again.

This park is exactly what it is designed to be: a great place to stop along I-40 for a night or two, or in our case, three. Access was a breeze for us in our 40-footer. There's plenty of room. Even though it's just off the highway, noise was no problem. As other reviewers have noted, cable TV had limited choices, but reception was fine. Satellite reception and AT&T cell service were both fine here. Office and park staff were very friendly. This is a fine place to get a good night's rest at a good price. We will definitely stop again.

Nice location. Easy access from I-17, so there's some traffic noise, but not really a problem. A good location to use as a base to all the things there are to see in this area. Office staff was very cordial and professional. Workout facility is quite nice. Didn't use the hot tub, pool or laundry, but they looked nice. On the downside, most sites in this park are not level. They're quite narrow, which means you can be inches away from your street side neighbor. WiFi was spotty, as was AT&T cell service. We spent a week here this time, but in the future will probably use this park as just an overnighter.

We weren't quite sure what we would find at this place, that others described as funky and friendly. Once we arrived, we really liked it. We're not-yet-55, so our options in Tucson are limited. This "adult park" is a wonderful find. We spent a week here at the end of snowbird season, so the place was definitely thinning out. But, the people we met were the most welcoming and friendly we've found anywhere. The owners and staff go out of their way to make guests feel welcome. Even this late in the season there were still lots of activities going on. We caught one of the two entertainment groups during the week, and they were awesome! We had no trouble at all navigating our 40-footer to the spaces in back that border the desert. The views were fantastic! With desert trails just steps from our door, we found plenty to do during our stay. Tucson Mountain Park and the Desert Museum are wonderful places to visit nearby. Wi-Fi was a bit wonky, but we had 3G on our AT&T air card. This is an older, rustic park. If you want a sterile setting, head to Beaudry's. You won't even know you're in the desert there. We've said enough. Any more and we're afraid we won't be able to find a space here next winter. We'll definitely be back.

Easy access from and to I-10, yet the park is very quiet. The staff and fellow campers were very cordial. The site had an absolutely stunning view of the city and mountains. The major drawback was how narrow these sites are. Length for our 40ft MH was fine, but, width was another story. We could extend slides and pull down window awnings, but patio awnings were out of the question. Wifi was strong and "free", but required a log-in with every session. The price listed reflects KOA discount, so this place isn't cheap. That said, we'll keep it on our list of places to stop when passing through the area.

This place is just about perfect. It is what it is supposed to be: a great place to spend a night or two in West Texas. Everything is brand new and the pool is under construction. The owners are very friendly and proud of the place, and rightfully so. They made us feel very welcome. Easy access from I-10 and plenty of room to maneuver our 40-footer to the nice big pull-through sites in the back row. Nice views of the valley and we enjoyed a gorgeous sunset. We'll definitely stop again and will make time to explore the area.

This place looks like it was a very nice park once upon a time. Now, it's starting to look a bit neglected. Staff was cheerful at check-in. Highway noise is a constant. Plenty of room and easy access for our 40-footer. Good spot for an overnight or two, but it's not a destination park for us.

We were in the Austin area to visit family and have our MH serviced. This park provided just what we needed. Easy access to I-35, yet you don't hear it. Interior roads are a bit narrow and in need of repair, but we came and went in our 40-footer without any trouble. Just take it slow. Once we were in our site, there was plenty of room. Staff is friendly. Weekend breakfasts are a tasty deal. And, we met some very friendly, fellow campers here. This will be our park of choice whenever we're in Austin.

We scheduled MH service here and stayed two nights. Being able to park adjacent to the dealer was very convenient. But, our site was unbelievably tight. We had to wedge our 40-footer between a bank of electrical boxes on one side, and a sewer connection on the other. The park was full both nights, and many are long term residents. So, getting a spot here could be tough. We recommend the dealer, but not the campground. When we returned to wrap up our service, we stayed at another park.

To be fair, this is a 55+ park and we really didn’t belong here. That said, during our month-plus long stay we got a pretty good taste of life here. Everyone smiles and waves, but no one is particularly friendly. The park is populated with snowbirds who come back year after year, have their friends and go out of their way to avoid meeting anyone new. Like many of the residents, this park is tired. Once upon a time it may have been a pretty place, but it’s definitely showing its age and could use some serious sprucing up. We couldn’t use our portable surge protector because the power outlet was so low to the ground. WiFi is basically non-existent. It finally began to work when most of the snowbirds left. Even then it was weak. Sites are basically gravel and very, very tight, especially for our 40-foot motorhome. We had to wait for someone to move their truck from our site before we could back in and park. No visible security, but we were pleased to see the local police patrolling periodically. Activities are geared toward the 70-plus set. Any way you look at it, this place is old and tired. We won’t be back. Rate is based on monthly rent plus electricity.

The highlight of our stay here was seeing the place we call home these days. Starting with the customary hug at check in, everyone smiled and waved. Other than that, it was nothing special. We camped in the “newer” part, which actually looked a bit tired. Our site was level and spacious for our 40-foot Class A. Satellite reception was easy. Power was good. Uninsulated water spigot froze as the temps dipped below freezing. We spent several mornings waiting for it to thaw long after the temp was back above freezing. Wi-Fi is extra. We didn’t use it, and our AT&T air card was fairly dependable. This park is pretty remote: Livingston, which isn’t much, and HEB and Wal-mart are 7-10 miles away. The nearest liquor store is 10 miles the other way. If you have to be in Livingston, as we did, this is a fine park at a good price.

With family in Weatherford, this lovely park was a great find for us. It’s very neat and tidy. Sites and roads are all concrete, with grass in between and trees around. The setting is lovely, and although it’s just off the highway we found it to be a pleasantly quiet and peaceful setting. Our pull through site (one of many) was level and more than adequate for our 40-foot MH and Jeep. Laundry and shower facilities are very nice. Staff is very helpful. We had a problem with the cable TV and they had someone at our site in a flash. (Problem turned out to be on our end.) Wi-Fi and power were very good. This is a perfect spot for a night or two or three. We’ll definitely return.

Our month-long stay was pleasant enough but: the Wi-Fi service in this park is a joke. It’s essentially non-existent. Like the Wi-Fi service, management is non-existent. With the exception of the delightful woman at the breakfast counter, the people who work here don’t seem terribly happy. This place is lacking any “personality”. Rig moving is a frequent occurrence. Practically every day we saw someone move from one site to another: often just one or two sites over. We kept asking ourselves “Why?” Our electric meter didn’t work. We discovered that several in the park don’t work and the way the park dealt with us at check out was to arbitrarily charge us for 10 kwh per day. The mail is delivered to your box the day after it arrives at the park. Seems like an unnecessary delay to us. Packages can be picked up only during a 90-minute window. Prices are going up. Current monthly rate is $100 more than it was when we made our reservation. There were always open sites. This big-rig friendly park has three things going for it. (1) The beach (2) Friendly residents who come back year after year (3) Tasty weekend breakfasts that are a great deal and a great way to meet friendly residents. Assuming the place will be more expensive, and still not have decent Wi-Fi, when we're this way again, we’ll pass next time. Two more things to note about this location. (1) It’s always windy (2) Salt gets everywhere!

We stopped here for a couple of nights during our winter migration south. The new owners are very friendly and have put a lot of work into bringing this park back to life. It's conveniently located just 1 mile from the turnpike. Easy access for our 40' MH and toad. Sites are level, power is great and Wi-Fi is strong and dependable. It's a great place to kick back for a night or two. We would definitely stop again.

This place isn't just "OK" for an overnight stay. It's "PERFECT!" With a 40 foot MH, we look for overnight spots that are hassle-free. And, this park met our every need. Access from the highway is quick and easy. Getting into, around and out of the park is a breeze. The owners are warm and welcoming and escort you to your long and level site. The trees make the you feel like you're in a remote hideaway. We couldn't hear the nearby interstate at all. This is a great spot for a relaxing and restful night. We will definitely be stop again when we're passing through.

This could be a great park, if it wanted to be. In reality it is, as others have said, a mobile home park with a few RV spots. The location was handy for us - not too far off the highway - for an overnight. Signage was poor, office was a bit scary. Had to call the manager to locate him. He was very accommodating, though. They do not accept credit cards. Site was tight and not level. Would have been tight for a big rig. Wi-Fi was strong. If you have to be in Durham for an overnight, this is an OK, but not great, stop.

In all of our reviews, we've only rated one other park a 10. This one truly deserves our highest rating. With a 40-foot motorhome, we look for easy access, and this park met our needs. The on-site owners were extremely welcoming. They take great pride in their park, as they should. It's lovely. And, they are working hard to keep it that way. Our site was long and level. Lots of grass in between and a lovely view of the lake. This place is very peaceful and relaxing. So much so, that we decided to stay an extra night. Wi-Fi was strong and dependable at our site. This is a great park that should just keep getting better. We'll definitely be back, and we're telling our friends.

We stopped here on our maiden voyage with our brand spanking new 40-foot diesel pusher. We didn't unhook at the office, and we should have: even though we had a pull-through. We followed a teenager in a golf cart who placed us too far to the right in the site, coming within millimeters of the site number post. (Did someone say it looks like these folks are going through the motions? Well, we agree.) Our placement in the site was compounded by how out of level the site was. We unhooked the toad and spent far too long to get level. Once we were settled, things were fine. But, we opted to stay for just one night. For being as close to the highway as we were it was surprisingly quiet. It's a very pretty campground that's just a bit frightening for these big rig newbies. Next time, we might look for other options.

This park is now listed on the KOA web site. They honored our KOA discount card and even redeemed our KOA points for a free night's stay. We checked into this park three times in eight days, as we were in the process of trading in and buying a new motorhome at a nearby dealer. The staff was very accommodating with our changing needs. It took us a bit to find a level spot in our back-in site. Our pull-through site was much better. During our stay the area was hit with torrential rains from remnants of Hurricane Ida, and about one-fourth of the campground was under water. Wi-Fi was strong and "free". This is not a destination park, but a very popular one nighter for travelers on the I-95 corridor. Yes, traffic noise is constant but didn't bother us. We would stop again.

When we arrived on Halloween, the park was busy, crowded and very tight. And, lots of fun! The trick-or-treating and decoration contest were great. (And we weren't traveling with any kids!) After the holiday the place cleared out and we practically had it to ourselves. With trees, a lake and river, it's really beautiful. Our site was level, wifi was strong and, surprisingly, the nearby highways and trains didn't really bother us at all. The location was convenient to Biltmore and Asheville. This is a very pretty area. We would definitely stop here again.

Great location: Short drive to Isle of Palms and Charleston. Plus, you can practically walk to Walmart! Easy access in and out. It's quiet and peaceful, but the lake was a bit smelly. We were glad we didn't pay extra to park near there. The site was long and level. The staff was very helpful. The Wifi was strong and dependable. Nice facilities, but a bit pricey.

This park is beautifully landscaped and immaculately maintained. River views are lovely. Lots are level and spacious, and you get to choose your own. One of the benefits of being on HHI is its bike friendliness, which you cannot take advantage of here. We had to load the bikes on the toad to take them anywhere to ride. To not have wi-fi at each site, at this price, is inexcusable.

This park is tough to rate. It has a lot going for it: peaceful setting, spacious sites with shade and sun, quiet, family-oriented, helpful and friendly owners and Wi-Fi for $2 per day. It has the potential to be a 9 or a 10. What's holding it back? Interior roads have some very rough ruts and tight spots, trees need trimming in some places, and a little sprucing here and there. All that said, we enjoyed our stay and would likely return next time we're in the area.

What a great setting! You could spend a day or two here and never leave the property. There’s lot of history to explore, and the river is a short stroll away. The view from the seven-story observation tower is worth the climb. We stayed in the upper campground and had no problem getting in or out. A few trees could use a trim. Cell service was essentially non-existent. Lots of trees, so satellite reception was a challenge. The office staff was very friendly and super helpful. They have great ideas for day trips to nearby attractions. Even though this park is a bit too remote for our taste, we’d definitely return.

This new park is a great place to overnight or stay for a few. We stayed for three nights and found the location to work great for exploring Montgomery. Sites are all gravel pull throughs. No trees yet, so this place might sizzle in the summer, but satellite reception is great. Wi-Fi is strong and dependable at no extra charge. The place is next to the interstate, but noise wasn’t really a problem for us. The owner is very welcoming and has plans to grow the park. In time it should get better and better. We would definitely return.

We were planning to stay at the gravel lot in downtown, then discovered this place. And, we’re glad we did. It’s a peaceful, roomy place that’s an easy 20 minutes from downtown. The park is gorgeous with spacious sites. Each has a picnic table, several are covered. Lots of trees, but there are some sites that appear to be satellite friendly. Park staff was friendly and helpful. And, yes, you can dump your gray water. We’ve never seen that before! The road to the park is a bit tricky, but manageable. We’ll definitely be back.

We visited family in Monett for a week and were so pleased to find this park just three miles east of town. All sites are long and level gravel pull thrus. A few trees provide a spot or two of shade, but they don’t interfere with satellite reception. Wi-Fi was strong, dependable and no extra charge. Staff was friendly and helpful. This is a great spot for an overnight, or longer if you have reason to stay in Monett. We’ll definitely be back.

This is a nice park that should get nicer in time as the tiny trees grow and provide some welcome shade. In the summer, this place could sizzle! For now, satellite reception is a piece of cake. Sites are all roomy, paved and terraced on a well-manicured hill. Check-in staff was helpful. On the advice of previous reviewers, we chose a back-in toward the park. Worlds of Fun and Oceans of Fun were both closed during our stay, so the place was fairly quiet. Parvin Road and I-435, of course, were quite busy, though the noise didn’t really bother us. Wi-Fi was strong and dependable. This park could work for an overnight or two, or as a base for exploring Kansas City. There is much to do not far from here! We will definitely return.

This place is tough to rate. If your travels require that you stay in Johnson County, this is spot for you. Conveniently located near suburban communities and Kansas City: you can’t beat the location. The monthly price is right and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Laundry is a good value. Wi-Fi is strong and dependable. The park tends to attract friendly folks who stay awhile to work, visit family and friends or receive medical care nearby. That said, this park is old, unlevel, tight, and spartan. No picnic tables, fire rings or swimming pool. You have enough space to put out your awning in most back-in spots, but the pull-through sites are so narrow some rigs can’t fully extend their slides. When the place is full, which it frequently is, those sites can be especially tough to maneuver. Between traffic and trains: noise can at times, be a problem for some. The next time our travels require us to stay in Johnson County, we’ll come back. But, for travelers who are simply passing through Kansas City, there are better alternatives around the outskirts of town.

Once upon a time, this may have been a nice park. But, today it's tired and in need of some work. Sites aren't level and the "grassy" areas between sites are weedy and bumpy. It's fine for a night, which is what most visitors do. Traffic noise wasn't as much of a problem as we anticipated.

With a reservation at the other park in town, we ran into road construction in town and couldn't get there. When we called the park to get help, we discovered that this park was owned by the same people. They had a space and were accessible, so we headed that way. This park is far from glamorous, but they had a level spot with full hookups (though the sewer hookup was too far back in the spot for us to use it) near the highway for the night. If we find ourselves passing through Kaycee when it's time to call it a night, we might stop again.

We stopped here for an overnight, so we appreciated the easy highway access. The entrance to the place gave us a bit of a stir - at 13'3" is looks even lower. On this very hot day, the pool was the most popular spot in the place. Every kid was there! Our pull through site was long and level, but we could just about reach out and touch our neighbors. No cable, but satellite reception was fine. The wi-fi was funky: frequent log-ins required, some sites blocked and slow response times. But, we've experienced worse. Views were great. As long as we don't buy a taller rig, we would probably stop here for an overnight again.

There is much we like about this park. It's small with spacious sites, has a nice community feeling, friendly staff and is conveniently located near a grocery store, Wal-Mart and town. We had a nice shady site and still had satellite. (How often does that happen?) We stayed two weeks and found the Wi-Fi the most frustrating experience we've had since we started RVing. While we were there, the park put up antennas for three new Wi-Fi networks. Our computer could see the networks, but getting and maintaining an internet connection was a rare event. And, this park advertises that every site has Wi-Fi! Clearly they are working on the issue, but until that issue is resolved, our rating is far short of a 10.

This is a fine family park in a great location for exploring a beautiful area. Sites are level and fairly roomy with greenish space between. The beach along the river is nice. With small trees that did provide a bit of shade, satellite was easy. Cable was good and Wi-Fi was quite spotty. There are two networks in the park and we had difficulty accessing either. Staff was welcoming. This place was full every night we were there, but it didn’t feel like it. If the Wi-Fi was dependable, we’d definitely return.

As others have said, this KOA is basically the only game in town. So, staying here feels a bit like being held captive. The location is handy to exploring the area. The park is huge and they pack them in tight. We had to take extra care to avoid several awnings and tow vehicles when moving from registration to our site. Electric was on the under voltage side. Wi-Fi was essentially non-existent. The only time we could get Wi-Fi was basically for an hour or so midday when the park was relatively empty. This KOA sits on a street that is basically a crosstown freeway on weekdays, filled with commuters and semis. We were near the entrance and it was very loud. We won’t be back.

This place is all about the half mile of private, sandy beach guests have access to across the street. The beach is lovely and the views of the strait, especially at sunset, are fantastic. And, the staff is helpful. Beyond that, this park has little to offer. We had friends pick us up for dinner one night and they were charged $5 each at the entrance! And, at this nightly rate: there is no cable or Wi-Fi? The row of trees behind the sites blocked our satellite. Electricity was so undervoltage we had to monitor our usage very carefully. Sites are basically one row of back-ins that are very close together. We’re glad we visited this place. The beach is beautiful, but there are better alternatives in the area.

On-site owners work hard to take care of their guests and maintain a sense of community and pride in this park, and it shows. With coffee every morning and happy hour in the afternoon, guests have a chance to get to know each other. We joined a group on a trip to Coquille for theater and dinner, and left just before the park's "Summer Olympics." There are many seasonal renters who come back year after year. That says something! We enjoyed our week catching up with friends and meeting new ones. With lots to explore up and down the coast, and dependable strong WiFi, we could have stayed longer. We will be back.

This is a very comfortable park in a great location for exploring Crater Lake and Bend. It's just off Hwy 97, but the highway really quiets down at night. The owners are very friendly and obviously are working hard to keep making this place bigger and better. Sites are level gravel with grass in between.

Our only complaint were the mosquitoes, which seem to be quite plentiful this season in these parts.

This park is lovely. The grounds are well manicured and maintained. The daily newspaper and trash pickup are very nice touches. At this price, though, strong dependable wi-fi is a must have. And, it was anything but that here. A pool would be a welcome addition, and there's something funky going on with the cable here. Nothing like seeing a $1 million rig with cables running out of the windows...all to get a TV signal at this fancy RV resort. When they upgrade wi-fi, cable and build a pool, we'll rate this spot a 10.

Wifi and cell service. We had to drive the 5 miles or so into Shingletown to make calls. And, the campground wifi was turned off during our stay. They are working on a better solution. And, a new cell tower is scheduled to be installed nearby later this year. With those two additions, we would give this place a 15!

This place is all about location. It's a pastoral setting with lots of trees and beautiful views of hills and vineyards. You can't beat it! Now, getting here is not for the faint of heart. The campground is 6 miles off and up from 101, most of which is on fairly narrow and winding roads with more than a few low hanging branches. Sites are nice, some shade, mostly level.

This park is all about location. Just steps from the beach and a few more steps to "town". Security is ever present, which is appreciated. Sites are a tad tight. We had to back as far in as we could go so our 20-ft sewer hose would fit. Our neighbor's fire ring was just off the back corner of our rig. Normally, we'd probably give this place an 8 or a 9. But, this week the swimming pool was still being repaired and did not open as anticipated. Also, landscapers were planting a few dozen palm trees. Between the generator at the pool and the heavy equipment planting trees, this is the noisiest park we've ever been in.

We were invited to this TT/NACO park as guests for a group rally. We receive calls from TT regularly encouraging us to join up, so we were interested in checking things out. And, we don't think we'll be joining anytime soon. We get the feeling this place used to be an awesome park. These days it looks tired and overdue for a facelift. One of TT's selling points is that every park is gated and well patrolled. The "hut" where our group met was burglarized one night. When our group reported the theft, the staff admitted that there is an ungated, unpatrolled entry to the park. So much for security! Bathrooms are clean, wifi is spotty at best in Section D. The staff was not at all welcoming to these guests who could have become members, but won't after this visit.

On this sunny winter weekend, this place couldn't be beat! It's spacious, level, clean, quiet and not windy. The owners are very friendly, professional and have put their hearts into this special park. The narrow road makes the last couple of miles a little adventurous. Google Maps says the park is three miles down the road, but it's only two! We arrived in the dark, missed the entrance and had to drive another 1.5 miles to the county park to turn around. Signage could be better.

This is a fine park in a great location -- just a five minute drive to town or the beach. The manager was very welcoming and checked in with us right after we pulled into our site to make sure everything was OK. It was.) Access was very easy. Our site was long and level, wifi was OK, satellite was blocked by nearby trees. Our only complaint was that our neighbors had a roaring bonfire going day and night in their portable fireplace. It was very windy, and smoke and ash was flying everywhere. The park has a "no open fires" policy, which we appreciate, but the behavior of these neighbors was an annoyance and - frankly - a concern for our safety.

We spent one night here after getting our motorhome set up for towing at a nearby dealership. We arrived after dark with 3 miles of towing experience, so we were a bit anxious. The staff at check in was helpful and encouraging, assuring us that we could maneuver to our site with no trouble. And, we did. The site was level with plenty of room. Setup was a snap. Wi-fi, while the arrangement was a bit funky, was fine for us. Satellite was out of the question with all the trees, but cable was fine. Neither highway noise nor farm smell was too bad -- but, that's life in Petaluma! This is a handy spot for exploring the Bay Area. Though, as area residents, we would strongly encourage taking advantage of a tour from here or drive to the ferry in Larkspur to enjoy a day of sightseeing in San Francisco. If you are from out of town and want to see San Francisco, this spot is on our "recommended" list.

Previous comments say it all and are right on the money (except the laundry didn't appear to be free). It's a great place to stay. What would it take for us to rate it a 10?

We stayed here for a week over Thanksgiving, which we're guessing is a bit before things get into full swing for the winter. So, things may have been in transition. There were several long-term snowbirds and a few overnighters. Location was convenient. Staff was welcoming. (The guy with tattoos is a sight, but harmless.) With I-10 close by, periodic ATVers between the park and the freeway, and an occasional train, noise can be a problem. Sites are a bit tight and would be tough when this park is full. We enjoyed our stay, but will likely check out another park next time.

We were here with a group and received a very warm welcome from the family running the place. They are great people. This is a perfect spot for an overnight or for a couple of days while you explore the area. It's a very old park with improvements in the works. Wi-Fi would be nice. Highway noise could be a problem for light sleepers, but not for us. We'll be back when we pass this way again.

This place is all about the location. With a quaint town blocks away and multiple wineries within a short drive, there's a lot to like. Basically, this is a level gravel lot with hookups and spotty Wi-Fi. There are no amenities, but a great location.

We've been looking for a nice campground within an hour or so of home, and we think we may have found one here. We paid a premium for a "premium" lot, but we enjoyed the "extras" of a patio, furniture, chiminea and a gravel pad (most are grass). Many trees, which is nice. But, there are several low hanging branches, which is not so nice. The staff was great. We'll be back.

We just stayed here one night, but we really enjoyed it. And, we'll definitely be back. Sites are level, shaded and private. Facilities are well maintained, and the place seems very family friendly. Bicycles are indeed welcome. There's just one small hill where they are prohibited (to avoid a collision in a blind intersection at the bottom of the hill). Our only complaint is the extra charge for 50 amp service. But, we didn't really need it anyway.

We spent the weekend here with a small group of 5 rigs and a few tents. All that was good about our stay was being with friends. The campground had little to offer. Basically, there are a handful of pull-throughs for week enders. The rest of the place is occupied by permanent residents in "rigs" in various states of disrepair. The website shows a picture of Belinda Point, which is gorgeous. But, it's important to know that it's a 30-minute or so walk and there is no beach access. The site also refers to this place as one of Northern California's most beautiful RV parks and campgrounds. Not true. If you want to experience one of Northern California's best, head across Highway 1 to Pomo. (After our group left, that's exactly what we did.)

Nice spot but extremely windy. Sites are bit tight and less than level. We found ourselves challenged to find the right spot in our site between trees and the road. Connections on the right side are a bit awkward. No sewer connections or even a dump station. So, we actually used the showers, which were fine and didn't cost anything. Place seemed very well patrolled. (Did we mention that it was very windy?)

We came with a group, and this place accommodated us well. We gathered for meals in the large community room and for lawn chair conversations we were under large shade trees in a greenbelt between our sites and the river. If you have a 5ver with a big window and lounge in the back get a river site and love the view. Sites were level, but a bit tight. Power is being upgraded all around. Wifi was great. Downsides: lots and lots of WIND and highway noise.

The surroundings can't be beat. Within steps of the Russian River, it's very pretty. This place is definitely a campground - gravel and dirt - so when the wind blows, it's dusty! No wifi at our site, but that didn't matter. There was plenty to do, see and enjoy.

We came here for our shakedown cruise in our brand new MH we picked up just hours earlier. Our welcome to the park was from a staff member in a golf cart yelling at us that we were speeding. (We weren't. We were driving a new MH!) Beyond that, it was a nice spot with great access to the river and a hiking trail to a wonderful large park. Our pull through site was tight. Back-in sites looked more spacious.

We stayed here three nights over July 4th weekend. Enjoyed the warm days and cool nights. The CG hosted many holiday activities, which we heard were fun. They even hosted a "Kids and Pets Parade" for kids of all ages. It was great! Guests here definitely got into the holiday spirit. We enjoyed ourselves and plan to return soon.

Under new management. Many improvements obviously in the works. Staff is quite friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is spotty.

Great spot for an overnight. (It's easy to miss the turn. Watch for it.) Shady level spots, clean showers, strong and reliable Wi-Fi. The staff was friendly and helpful.

This is the best way to see the south rim. Walk to the train and leave the driving to someone else. We added a bus rim tour to our itinerary, which was great. This new park is very clean, fairly level and (in 5-10 years) should have some shade. Check in staff were very helpful. The shuttle system makes the short walk to the hotel even shorter. Wi-Fi was strong and dependable.

Easy access to park and town via shuttle. EXCELLENT canyon views and river access. Beyond that, this place could use some help. Bathrooms were grungy and out of service one day during our 5-day stay. Wi-Fi is advertised but essentially non-existent -- you have to go to the lobby, sit in exactly the right spot and cross your fingers. Most of the time it did not work.

This place was a kick. Helpful staff, level sites, big and clean private bathroom/shower facilities. BBQ and Karioke on Friday nights. Wi-Fi was just $5/day. Quite reliable.
