This is a beautiful campground right on the Mississippi River. The price reflects the half price senior discount for a site close to the river. I used the nearby Great River Bike Trail often during the week we spent here. We had to make use of their storm shelter in the bath house during our stay. The park hosts went to each site to tell the occupants a severe storm was coming; that was great service. The electrical hookup was spot on voltage but be aware that there aren't water hookups in the sites and certainly no sewage hookups. There is a real good dump station available and water faucets are spotted around the park to fill your tank. We would certainly stay in this park again.
We stayed here to be close to friends in the area. We received a small Escapees discount. About half of the sites are not very level so you may want to make sure to ask for a level site when making your reservations. We had an unlevel site and had to raise the front of our motorhome high up to get level. The parking surface is crushed limestone gravel. The utilities were adequate with the water and electric spot on. The sewer connection was about a foot and a half off the ground, which would have been much better at ground level. There are nice trees in the park for some shading. We had a picnic table in our space. We would stay here again when visiting our friends in the area.
This park is one we have stayed at a number of times over the years but have not stayed at for over 5 years. The long time managers who went out of their way to greet us and make us feel welcome have retired. The new managers are very competent and cordial but we missed the the greeting we were used to here. The utilities were adequate except the WiFi was just about unusable for us even close to the the antenna. Our Verizon and DirecTV was good here. The cable TV had lots of channels. The parking surface is crushed limestone gravel and this particular site could have been a little more level by our front door. We would stay here again for a night or two.
The rate is the senior rate. This is the most wonderful COE park we have ever stayed at, and we have stayed at many. The people who checked us in were very friendly and helpful. The grounds were beautifully cared for. There is considerable space between rigs which allows a lot of privacy. The parking surface is asphalt and our site was very level. The water and electric services were OK. We were able to get both DirecTV and Verizon from our lake front site. We would return here again.
This is a beautiful park; too bad we came in late and only stayed one evening. This park has everything you would expect a ten rated park to have. Unfortunately, we didn't stay long enough to enjoy it fully. We got a great Verizon signal and our DirecTV access was great. The park cable was more than adequate as well. All hookups were as they should be. This park is a beautifully clean and scenic park. The parking surface was concrete in our spot. You will want to return to this park again and again.
This is a pretty common RV park as RV parks go. The parking surface is large gravel and the space is tight when the park is full. If you need showers or restrooms, don't come here. The hookups are adequate albeit antiquated. The rating I give the park is not for the physical park but for Betty Bernard herself who makes the park a ten rating park. If you want to immerse yourself in the Cajun culture, Betty will make it happen. If you want to make many close friends, Betty provides the opportunity for that to happen with her 4:30PM happy hour which often continues into the evening with food and music. Betty's is an absolute happening. This is not a place for unfriendly people to come; you may wish to go to another RV park. I am a Cajun myself and I appreciate what Betty does to shine her wonderful light on our Cajun culture. We definitely would come back here when in the area.
One of the best Escapees Rainbow Parks in the system. The utility hookups are adequate. WiFi through Tengo Internet is not free. No mail can be delivered to the park; you must use general delivery at a local post office. Packages must be delivered to your rig in your space; they don't go to the office like most RV parks. The parking surface is on the grass and when it rains, many of the spaces flood. The water drains fairly quickly in a day or two. You don't need to be an Escapees member to stay here but a member gets a discount. There are lots of activities here in the park. We would stay here again.
The rate is based on being here for a month. The previous reviewer's comment about not staying here if it rains is one I concur with. Even with a modest rain, this place floods in a number of areas. Since you are parked on mostly fine sand and soil, when it rains, the sand and soil splash up onto your rig and anything else close to the ground so everything is very dirty when you prepare to leave. They do come along and fill the worst mud holes with gravel at times. The parking spaces need to be spread with gravel to make for a better stay here. The utilities were adequate. The tree coverage is very great here so we were not able to obtain a satellite for DirecTV but they do have cable TV at no additional cost. There is no recycling here at all. Be careful when you exit the park because you could bottom out; this could be corrected with the addition of gravel. The high point here is the Tiki bar which has pretty good food and drinks with great evening entertainment. We will not be staying here again in the future.
We stayed here four months so we got to know a whole lot about this park. The rate shown reflects the monthly price with electricity being an extra charge which for us normally was about $75 per month on average. Make sure you keep your receipts to alleviate any disputed electrical charges during your stay. There is a $50 electricity deposit upon check-in, as well. Make no mistake about it; this is a real nice RV park. All of the hookups were adequate as expected, and the large concrete pads in most spaces are some of the best we have ever parked on. The roads throughout the park are paved with asphalt and are real nice. There is a beautiful pond on site that has catch and release fishing. There is a laundromat for you as well. The park; however, has a number of things that need attention. The WiFi is very slow to nonexistent. Our Verizon signal; however, was a great 4G one so our phones and MiFi device worked very well for internet. This park has poor grounds and clubhouse maintenance that needs attention. The whole place could do with a good cleanup, but they have nobody responsible for those tasks. So they rely upon unpaid volunteers from the ranks of their paying customers to accomplish them. I myself pruned many of the trees in the park so that RVs could make it down the park roads and into their parking spaces. I also joined with others to put in flower beds and remove much of the tangle of weeds in the park. They really do need to retain a work camper to do the work that needs to be done here. The tree cover in the park is so heavy that it may be difficult to obtain a satellite signal from your provider in some spaces. In some cases, you may be able to cure the problem with some tree pruning. Local TV is available from your crank up antenna if you can’t get a satellite. There is no cable TV available here. For those who enjoy potlucks lucks, there is one on Sunday evening.. Propane is available in this park. There is plenty to do with Crooked River State Park close by and lots of historical sites and beautiful beaches nearby. As you can see, we have rated a large number of parks so we must compare this park with other parks we have rated. We might stay here again if we happened to be in the area.
This park is a bit funky. The parking surface is grass, some gravel and some dirt; that's the funky part. After a big rain like happens often here, it could be rather difficult. That's the bad news. The things that are good make it just fine being here. Most importantly is it's location of only a few miles from Savannah and Hilton Head. The cost reported is Passport America weekly rate. The utilities were quite adequate and well placed. The cable TV has a gazillion channels and the Wi-Fi is free and fast running about 10mbps. We had no problem leveling our rig. One problem in the park, however, is there is rarely anyone manning the office or even the phone for that matter. We would certainly stay here again in spite of some aggravations.
We camped in campground #2 in a beautiful spot right on the water of this beautiful lake. The price reflects $22 plus the numerous taxes that are added in. Our spot was paved with asphalt and was easy to level up on. Our utilities, water and 50 amp electric were adequate. The dump station looks very well conceived. They do recycle plastic bottles, newspaper and aluminum cans. We were able to receive DirecTV and a few local channels, as well. Our Verizon signal was weak, but usable. The park staff was helpful upon check in. We would definitely stay here again.
We are Escapees and the rate is based on a week's stay. All of the full hookups performed adequately but if you want cable TV, you must pay extra. The parking surface is crushed limestone gravel and our site was pretty level. This RV park is handy for shopping locally or for going to Knoxville. The Museum of Appalachia, one interstate exit away, is definitely a must see as is the museum in close-by Norris Dam State Park. The office staff were friendly and helpful albeit rather shy. We were able to get DirecTV just fine as we did a high speed Verizon Wireless connection at around 30 MBPS. We would stay here again.
This is a beautiful state park, make no mistake about that. The forest is dense, in fact so dense that we could not get DirecTV from our spot. Our crank up antenna, however, was able to capture enough local channels to satisfy us. Our Verizon cell phone and broadband Internet connection was great. The park is pretty much dated with mostly asphalt pads that are short and narrow for larger RVs, and your tow vehicle has to be parked on the adjacent grass. Our spot #4 was level enough to make leveling our motorhome a breeze. Our space was on the road that leads to the park entrance and traffic past our motorhome was speedy and noisy at times. Speaking of noise, the traffic on the nearby highway is noisy, and the close-by park sewage treatment plant is very noisy; it runs all of the time. The electric and sewage hookups are adequate, but the water hookup is far enough away to require our 50 ft water hose. As I walked around the park, I noticed that a couple of RVs had to use at least 100 ft of hose to reach their water hookup. There are lots of activities in the park and lots to see and do in the area. I am not sure we would return to this park again with the high price of staying here not reflected in the park quality.
Wow, what a find; I love this park. The park has full hookups that all perform as they should. We were able to level our rig very quickly. We were able to get DirecTV easily, and our Verizon phone and broadband wireless Internet worked flawlessly. The lake is just beautiful, and there were plenty of gravel roads in the park to walk the dog and get some exercise. The bicycling in the area is also very good with many paved country lanes with little or no traffic on which to ride. The RV spots are crushed limestone gravel which was adequate for both our rig and our toad. The employee at the entrance was real friendly and helpful. There is no recycling in the park. We would definitely stay here again.
The park was clean and our site was large enough to park both motorhome and Jeep with ease. The parking surface is crushed limestone gravel which tended to be a bit dusty at times. The site was almost completely level. All of the full hookup utilities were adequate and the cable TV was free with only a few channels available. Our DirecTV dish was able to operate fine in spite of the many large trees in the park. The Wi-Fi was free and worked fairly well. There is a good Verizon Wireless signal for MiFi or phone. The office personnel were very friendly and helpful. There is recycling in the park. The pool was great after a sweaty job hooking up. We would stay here again in spite of the high price we paid to stay.
The lady in the office was very helpful. The park is wooded with hardwood and a few conifers, and shade in the August heat was more welcome than having DirecTV from our dome through the trees. We couldn't get a satellite, but we got lots of local channels on our crank up antenna. You cannot make reservations so it is first come first served. It was a bit dicey since we were here ahead of the Labor Day holiday. Our spot was level. The water is quite a distance from some sites so you may need to have a longer hose and the sewer hookups in some sites may need a longer hose as well. The electric service was spot on. There is a picnic table and fire pit in each site. We really do like this park and definitely would stay here again.
The park is a typical Corps of Engineers park. When we arrived the government employee was pretty clueless, however, about their sites and what was available in them. The 50 Amp site we had reserved was mostly grass to park our motorhome on, and since it had just rained we decided against parking there. The employee gave us a list of other sites, and we selected another one she said was 50 Amp which turned out to be 30 Amp. That worked out since the other sites would have prevented us from getting a DirecTV signal. Since it was pretty warm, we could only run one air conditioner which worked out OK anyway. Be advised that water access locations to fill your tank are very limited except at the dump station. We filled our tank at our last stop. There was good fishing from the bank for our grandchildren, and fire rings for them to have a campfire in the evening. The newer camping area in the park had better electric but no trees to shade you on some warm days. We would probably stay here again.
We came for four nights and decided to stay for a month. The rate I quote is based on the $250 per month price and projected electricity use of $75 for the month which is probably high. The people who run the park are wonderful and really go out of their way to make sure everything is perfect. We cannot find anything wrong with the place. The utilities are in the correct place and the electricity is spot on. There are laundry rooms, a great pool and hot tub. Our dog liked the dog yard. The park is spotless and only five years old. They host quite a number of RV rallies and we are looking forward to the bluegrass music festival in April. We will come back here over and over and over!
The lady who checked us in was great. She guided us to our spot where my wife took over helping me park. The hookups are adequate and there is free cable with your site. The roads and parking spots are dusty gravel so the park can be a bit dusty as the wind howls through here. We got the Escapee discount which was a pleasant surprise. We would stay here again for a night.
I don't normally rate a park again unless something changes. The woman that works the desk definitely needs to be replaced she does not do justice to what is a good RV park otherwise. Everything else is quite satisfactory. It would be good to have a place for our dog to do his business in the park however. All of the utilities were adequate. The WiFi was adequate. We will stay here again and again in the future.
This is a beautiful park sure to be filled almost entirely with winter visitors from the north country. The park is pretty new, and all of the facilities are more than adequate. There are lots of activities available, and the winter residents are very friendly. This park is a winter destination park where almost all of the RVs are parked for the entire wintertime. They have been erecting park models here at a rapid pace, but most spaces are still occupied by RVs. You will need to make reservations way ahead of your planned stay since there are very few unoccupied spaces in the park during the season. The park office closes at 3 PM so plan your arrival accordingly. The cost of our stay is based on the monthly cost since we stayed two months. We would stay here again.
The staff was friendly and helpful upon check in. Our spot was a pullin which was easily accessible from the office. The utilities were adequate but the shared pedestal with the side by side parking is something I totally dislike in a park of this price. Our slides are only scant feet from our side by side neighbor and that one thing causes me to downgrade the rating of this park. There is commingled recycling here, which I applaud them for. The park WiFi actually works which is a rarity in most parks. We do have a Verizon 4G connection if we need it. There are lots of shade trees but we still got DirecTV on our dish. We would stay here again.
This is a wonderful park. If you have a big rig, you need to select your site carefully. We were able to get our Verizon Broadband Wireless Internet and cell phone to work albeit poorly at times. Our DirecTV worked well from our site and there are 6 local channels available as well. The water is great so you will want to fill your tank here. There is a definite bottleneck in the dump site/drinking water site so you will need to be patient. They could improve this situation easily if they wanted to. There is limited recycling there as well. We would definitely stay here again. It is first come first served so plan accordingly.
We used the KOA discount card to get a lower price. The utilities were adequate and cable TV is in the price for the stay. The WiFi was not very good from our site so we used our Verizon MiFi device instead. There are absolutely no trees here and the park is your basic dusty gravel parking lot. The staff is great here and was very helpful upon check in. It has all of the KOA amenities including a pool which looked inviting. We stayed here a couple of years ago and the park doesn't seem to have as many permanent residents as it did back then and most of these folks are behind the separating wooden fence which is a good thing. We will likely stay here again sometime.
This KOA is typical of most KOAs in that they cost more than most other parks. This park has everything but a pool. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The park store is very nice and the many other amenities are better than the average. The cable TV is included in the price and has many more channels than a person could ever use. Yes, we are close to the Interstate and there is some noise but it is not any worse than many other parks across the land. There is a wonderful dog park which we used. There is propane like other KOAs. The utilities are adequate and the water is extremely high pressure so use your regulator. We would definitely stay here again.
This is probably the finest campground in the state of Iowa. We reviewed the park about three years ago, and since then, they have redone the pond in the center of the park and have added many other improvements. We simply cannot find anything wrong with this park. The owners and employees are very friendly and helpful; they go that extra mile. We stay here for about three months each year so we pay the monthly rate. This park is difficult to get into so make sure to make reservations. We will stay here over and over again.
The park is very basic. OK for one night but that about it. There is really no shade and the pads are gravel and weeds. The hookups are adequate and the WiFi was nonexistent so we used our Verison Broadband Wireless. We used the meager Passport America discount since it is "the season" in Ogallala. There are plenty of goat heads so watch your pet's paws. I doubt that we would ever stay here again.
This is one of the best cared for COE parks ever. They only recycle aluminum cans here; the Feds need to set a better example for RV parks. The electric and water hookups were spot on. Our space was fairly level. The town of Perry is close for shopping. We had great views from our rig of the lake. We would stay here in the future.
What a beautiful lake and a great RV park. This is the clearest lake water we have seen since we were in Glacier National Park last year. The price reflects our senior pass price. The water and electric utilities were spot on. The dump station is one of the best we have seen in a while. Make sure you go to Lucus for some interesting art! We will be back again in the future.
Great park for a couple nights. The management is great and led us right to our spot. The space was difficult to get totally level but we got it well enough. Lots of hummingbirds so we deployed a feeder. Total hookups were adequate. Well water is great here. Beautiful views in all directions. We would stay here again.
The $10 price was right even though we lost much more than that in the casino but I guess that is the idea, right. The electric was up to snuff. There is great security. The truck noise from the adjacent truck parking area was bad where we were. There is a dump station. We would likely use this place again.
This is probably one of the better RV parks in the Alamogordo area. Our costs reflect Good Sams and Passport America discounts. The pros are that the management is good and they led us to our site. The utility hookups were adequate as expected. The cons were that the highway noise was fairly loud and there was no shade what so ever. One of my pet peeves is they have no recycling of any kind in this day and age. We would stay here again but also would check further into some of the other parks first.
This is a real good RV park in this area. All of the hookups were more than adequate. The Wi-Fi is great from site #6. The site is level with a gravel surface. The access roads are a bit dusty. The manager was both friendly and helpful. They have free coffee and donuts on Saturday morning. There is recycling in the park. We will stay here in the future.
This is one of the best full service campgrounds we have ever reviewed. The staff is very helpful. The place is absolutely spotless. There is co-mingled recycling available. The spaces are huge. All utilities including cable hookups are spot on. Call first to determine your cost of your space; we had the monthly rate in the new section. There are an abundance of activities available. There is something for everyone. We will come back here year after year for at least a month.
Rigs are parked close together and the sewer "hookup" is very strange (something mandated by the health department). We chose to dump tanks at our next destination. The power and water were adequate. We opted for a longer pull-through so we could park our toad behind our motorhome. All of the services you might require are very close by. I had a Verizon 4G wireless connection for my MiFi. We would stay here again.
We had the Good Sam discount but the 11.5% in taxes negated the discount plus. This is a great park that is well run. They had good utilities and they will let you wash your rig plus toad if you wish.The electric box and the cable hookup are way behind your rig which was a bit strange but it worked for us. We would definitely stay here again and again. A good place to stay for Zion. The town has most services.
Good park for an overnight. Paid the Passport America rate. Rigs park close together and there are many energy workers parked for long term. The parking surface is gravel. The park owner is real nice and was very helpful. You may wash your rig here with no problems, my neighbor told me. All utilities were good. We would stay again for a night.
If there ever was a 10 rating, this park gets it! All of the utilities are adequate. The Wi-Fi was over 5 MBPS when I checked it. Our Verizon connection was OK. The employees were very good and answered all of our questions so you may want to disregard the previous rating someone gave this park. The scenery from the park is just beautiful and it is just outside the entrance to Custer State Park. Bike and hiking trails can be accessed right from the RV park. This is probably in our top 10 parks we have ever rated. We will be back!
We got propane here as we were coming in. The price per night in the park reflects the Passport America discount. The owners are real nice here and led us to our spot and assisted us in parking. The utilities are adequate. They put us in a pull through that allowed us to access DirecTV. We have no problem with seasonal RVers living in the park; they seemed real nice. They keep some pull throughs open for people who only stay from 1-3 nights. You can leave your toad attached if you wish. We would stay here again.
Price reflects Passport America membership with 50 amp service ($2 extra/night). Park was pretty full with many Escapees going to the Escapade in Gillette, WY. All utilities were adequate. Wi-Fi and Verizon were very good here. Check out the Monday evening hamburger special on Monday evenings at Marlin's across the street. We would stay here again if in the area.
Nice small basic RV park behind a small old style motel. The utilities were up to par and our stay here was good. The owner led us to our site and visited with us to make sure everything was okay. The Wi-Fi was good and our Verizon signal was good as well. The gravel entrance into the park was pretty dusty, but it was only a short distance to our site. It was easy for us to get level. We would stay here again in the future.
Camped here for the 50 amp service on a very hot day before going to HWH for jack service the next day. The mile long gravel road to the RV park was a real wash board and extremely dusty. The 50 amp service was spot on. We didn't need a sewer site for just one night. The pool was refreshing on a very hot day. The site was just grass but was surprisingly level. The noise from the very close by I-80 would have been much worse if we hadn't been using our air conditioners all night. The guy checking us in was nice and helpful. We would stay here again for a night if we had to.
We had 3 of our grandkids with us and even though the park is not really kid friendly, we made it through the night with no problems. If my wife and I were here to go to Mayo Clinic, we would definitely stay here. All utilities worked just fine here. The park is quiet and the staff was friendly. We would definitely stay here again.
Wow, super place to stay especially if you have kids along as we did. The playground, beach, fishing pier and hiking trail are excellent. The park is well cared for and even though there are seasonal rigs in the park, you need to look past that. Even though they don't have water and sewer hookups the 50 amp electric is spot on; and, wow, cable TV. Hey, don't tell anyone about this place; it'll be our secret.
This park is is in a good location for Bayfield and Apostle Islands visits but the park is rather overpriced for what you get. All of the utilities are in good working order but the Wi-Fi a bit weak. We enjoyed being here but will go south to Washburn to stay in a city park for half the price here. The park owner is very friendly and helpful. Our 38 foot motorhome fit well in our site. The lake view from our more expensive site was rather good.
This park is an older one, and the price is rather high even with the Good Sam's discount, but this is the city, and prices are usually high in these city locations. The grandkids liked the little playground and its gnome goodie hide. All of the utilities and Wi-Fi were adequate for our motorhome. This location is close to many attractions in the area.
The campground host was very helpful and runs a very tight ship here; he even suggested Jeep trails we could try with our stock Liberty. He patrols the park numerous times a day to make sure things are fine for all of the guests. He will give anyone the boot if they are clearly breaking the rules. This is dry camping at its finest: come to the park with your water tank full and your other tanks empty if you plan to stay for a while. We stayed in our 38 ft motorhome with our Jeep towed and had plenty of room in one of the larger sites. We definitely would stay here again!
The owners were very helpful and their delivery of hot pizza to our door was super. All utilities worked as they should have. We spent Easter here with the wind howling and the skies dreary so the owners here made the difference. Our jacks wouldn't go down so they made sure we had a very level site. We would stay here again.
We paid the Passport America price for 50 Amp service of $19.50 plus tax. The electricity was right on and the pull-through site was large enough for our 38 ft. motorhome plus our Jeep toad. The road coming in and the park itself are dusty so you may want to disconnect your toad before entering the facility. We would stay here again for a few days to prepare for BLM dry camping.
Nice park with great views of Lake Pleasant. The dump station was real nice, better than most. The electricity was spot on. Our 38 ft. motorhome had no problems fitting into the site we had. We would stay here again.
This is a beautiful SKP coop park where members own the their spaces. We were SKP member guests and parked on an owner's spot while they were away. The utilities were all very good with the water pressure a bit high. The grounds are kept well groomed by members' volunteerism. This is a good park to travel to Yosemite NP. Shopping is close by in Oakhurst. There is a huge Indian casino close by. Our costs reflect the weekly price; electricity is charged extra at the PG&E rate. We would definitely stay here again when in the area.
The spaces are all pull-throughs and very level. All utilities are adequate. You can select any open space and self register. Satellite TV is great and you can pick up local channels on your TV antenna. The Wi-Fi is robust and fast. Our Verizon connection had all of the bars on a digital signal. It can get hot here with no shade since the trees are very young. This is a great stopover with food at the casino. We would use this park again as a short stopover.
We had space number 3 in the A loop which afforded us adequate room for our 38 footer. There was complete privacy here. There is absolutely no TV of any kind here so we watched movies on our DVD player. The camp store was good with basic supplies and the staff was cheerful and helpful. You need to arrive with your water tank full and other tanks empty because this is totally dry camping with only a little sunlight to hit solar panels. Generators can be run at specific times. The park was absolutely beautiful. We would come here again.
Absolutely one of the best parks we have ever stayed in. We could not find one thing wrong anywhere. The pads are paved asphalt and very level. The full hookups are state of the art and in the correct spot on our site. The 50 amp service was spot on. The water pressure could be a bit high which you may want to step down a bit. The hosts were extremely helpful and went above and beyond the call of duty. You will want to make reservations if you wish to stay on a weekend. We will definitely stay here again and again.
A wonderful campground. We stayed in the B loop where the larger motorhomes parked. The water and electric hookups were good and electric voltage was spot on. The pads are paved with asphalt and pretty level and large. There is a well appointed dump station located in a good spot. There is a recycling station in B loop too. We would stay here again but you must have reservations if you wish to stay during a weekend or holiday.
The manager here is pretty darned good. The park itself is funky and below average as regards hookups and parking surface. The electricity that we experienced was no more than 30 amp using ancient electrical boxes. We were here during the fall Packwood Flea Market so every piece of available space had an RV or tent on it. It rather reminded us of camping at a state fair. The upshot is we had fun; the camping albeit funky was not a bad experience at all. They need to trim trees so you can make it down the newly graveled access roads in the park as well as into many of the sites themselves. We would stay here again, however.
This is a huge fairground campground(there could be more than 200 spaces here) suitable for a short stay. The hookups all checked out. You park on grass here. Our electric box has a wasp nest in it so we had to call the staff to attend to them before we could did connect. Our DirecTV and Verizon Broadband Wireless worked very well here. We would only stay here for one night.
Very tight parking unless you have no slides. The park is really pretty, however. The staff was adequate. The full hookups were adequate. The cable TV as advertised didn't exist. We were close to shopping in Spokane.
Real nice park. All of the hookups worked well. The voltage was a bit borderline low. The tree coverage prevented us from getting satellite TV but they had cable for free. The CG host was extremely helpful above and beyond the call of duty. Probably the best RV park in town. They had deer in the park drawn to the mineral feeders. Our Verizon Broadband Internet was super and very fast; we didn't use the free Wi-Fi. We would stay here again.
Absolutely the finest National Park camping in the country but don't tell anyone. All of the camping is first come first served basis. There are bigger rig camping spots right next to the lake. This is dry camping at its finest. Our solar panels got plenty of sun and we even got DirecTV on our dish, life is good. The scenery is specular and the rangers are the best. There is plenty of hiking, free fishing, ranger evening presentations. Did I mention the scenery!
The staff was great here; the best KOA we have ever stayed in. The views from the park are spectacular. We were parked facing right at the pool which we used often. The only complaint we heard while we were here for a week was that the Wi-Fi was really poor; we have Verizon Broadband Wireless Internet which gave us a digital high speed connection. We heard from others that AT&T Wireless had real poor service here. Everything else was in order; the 50 amp electric was spot on. Some of the spaces are not very level and gave some people some challenges. For us everything was great. We would definitely stay here again.
Wow! If I had known about the county campground about 1/4 of a mile further down the road I would not have stayed here. But, we already had our reservations for two nights so we paid the price. The KOA is real average. The electricity was OK we paid more for 50 amp. The staff was friendly. The site is crushed limestone. We would not stay here again.
We have the senior pass, so our cost per night was less. Amazingly, we were able to get DirecTV and Verizon broadband wireless internet from our site. We could have stayed here for a long time, it was that nice. The road in turns into a real dusty rub board gravel for about 3 miles. We were able to fill our tank with great well water. Our rig is 40 feet long and fit nicely into our back-in site. We heard a pack of wolves howling our first night! Not far from the west gate to Yellowstone. Our 50 amp service was spot on. It was in the high 30s at night and in the mid to high 70s in the day time so you will need to run both air conditioner and heater while here. We would definitely stay here again.
The park was real average for me. All of the many sites are real close together; but then we looked at the other parks in town and all of them are packed in there, too. I guess that's what happens when you are close to Yellowstone. The electricity worked OK, but they are requesting that you only run one air conditioner because the park is full. So there is a potential voltage problem here I suspect. You look around from your rig, and all you see is other rigs. The place is well run and the staff was helpful albeit real busy. This is just a stopover as we make our way to Yellowstone.
Real nice, well run park. The roads were real dusty so our toad got covered with dust when we were led to our site. The cable and Wi-Fi are great and free. Our dish could not acquire a satellite because of all of the trees so we were thankful for the cable. Our 38 foot rig fit nicely in our fairly level site. The water tastes good and the 50 Amp service is spot on voltage. The pool and whirlpool are very clean and the ice cream social each evening is only $1 and was super. We would come here again.
The staff was good and friendly. The park charges $2/night for cable which we availed ourselves of. The electricity can get a bit funky with low voltage when the park is real full. The park roads were a bit dusty and could get muddy when it rains. The WiFi was real good from our spot. We would stay here again if needed to go to the Badlands or Wall Drug.
This is a wonderful little park with four 50 amp hookups and numerous 30 amp sites, with spot-on voltage. We stayed in spot number two, which was the most level of all. There is a dump station closeby. We were the only RV here with a couple of campers in the park as well. The pool is very closeby and costs $1. We love these little town parks when we can find them. We will come here again sometime.
We also had to pay an entrance fee of $6 which made our camping cost us $22. The staff was excellent and helped us with every question we had. The park is close to shopping. There are only electric hookups here; the new 50 Amp service is spot on. Our dish antenna couldn't get a signal through the thick tree coverage. The mosquitos were really bad so bring lots of repellent. We would certainly stay here again.
We stayed here with two grand children so the price was higher. All of the hookups were very good. The staff was very helpful. The "all you can eat" pancake breakfast was super for $4. The park is close enough to the Badlands National Park to make travel through it easy. There is no cell phone service here but the WiFi service in the park kept us in communication with family members. We would stay here again except we thought the cost was pretty high, so we might stay in the National Park campground instead.
A wonderful RV park just outside the entrance to Devils Tower National Monument. We stayed with our two grandchildren so the rate was higher. The considerable staff was extremely attentive. All of the hookups worked well. There is a lot of activities for kids here. You will need to make reservations ahead. Beautiful scenery! We would definitely stay here again.
Great park with pleasant staff. Everything you may want is here. The electric is spot on. The water pressure is problematic at times when everyone is taking showers in the morning. The parking spaces are gravel/dirt or mud at times. We loved it here and would return if we had children with us especially.
We came here in our 38 foot diesel pusher and had difficulty getting in. They really do need to prune some of their trees from the entrance and into the campground. Many of the sites were really poor. There was only one available site that would hold us. The park is beautiful and the employees just great. If you like geocaching there are many here. The electricity was spot on. I don't know if I would stay here again, however.
The sites are gravel with considerable weeds present. The management is pleasant but when they went to cooking the very expensive hambergers at the small outdoor diner, their expertise vanished. The burgers were terrible with meager condiments and my beans were poured right out of the cold can. The swimming pool was very nice and was enjoyed by us and our grand children. The park would have been much nicer if they hadn't received a huge amount of rain the night before. Many sites were closed because of the considerable water present. The electric was spot on.
There is a 50 Amp and three 30 Amp hookups each, on a number of poles in a large parking lot spot within the fairgrounds, just inside the entrance on N Street. There is a dump station. There are no water hookups in the camping area. It is a good place to stop for a couple of nights. We would use these facilities again.
The park was perfect for a night or two. Electric was spot on voltage. Water pressure is very high so you will want to reduce it. It could be dusty as others have said and probably somewhat muddy in rainy weather. The first night is free and additional nights are $10 for up to 7 nights then you must vacate. My wife was happy once we got from behind the poplar trees which blocked our dish antenna. We would use this park again.
Make sure this campground is open before you drive a big rig up to the gate. This campground is currently closed. The lady that helped us, suggested that we drive to La Veta, Colorado. We took her suggestion.
Beautiful area; we have stayed here before. We used our Golden Age Pass for half price. Rates went up to $20 per night on April 15th or $10 with pass. They have added a number of new sites which opened on April 15th. Coming into CG is pretty confusing with the complete lack of signage; they changed the entrance to the park so you may want to scout things out before entering with a large rig. There was no water at our site so we had to fill at one of the available places in the park. We will stay here again in the future.
This has been one of our favorite parks since we began staying here back in 2001. Since then they have added new 50 amp hookups and improved the dump so you can dump coming in as well as going out. There is also a new nature center by the entrance to the park. The thing we don't like is the quantum leap the rates took to $25 the first of the year. They charged us $17 to park in the overflow area in the group camping area. We only had to spend one night there. Usually the overflow is located at the park entrance and charge only $10 there. They must have been directed to maximize revenue anyway they could. We come here at least once a year to visit family down below and we love it.
A totally wonderful park with great scenery and wonderful trails for hiking and biking. There is NO dump here; so you need to plan ahead when you come. There are water faucets around to fill your tank with wonderful well water. We would definitely come here again.
We paid $5 for dry camping for one night before we were moved into a full hookup site. We got settled in just before a huge wind and rain storm hit the area. We were sure glad we had come in from dry camping in the Anza Borrego Desert before that terrible storm hit. We were able to have our mail sent right to the park and use their laundromat as well. Being Escapees has always been a great thing for us.
We camped here for two nights. The parking area is a gravel area across the street from the casino. This is just a parking area which has signs "No Overnight Camping" but when you call security at the number listed they say to camp as long as you wish. They do want you to come to the casino and try your luck. There are fine restaurants there. The experience here is totally free dry camping with others camped nearby. There is no dumpster for trash so just take it to your next stop. Since the parking is close to the Interstate, it can be noisy. We would stay here again.
This is certainly one of the finest state parks we have ever stayed at. We had no trouble getting our 38' motorhome into our back-in space. There is a 40' rig parked right next to us. 45' rigs could be tight though. The 50 AMP electricity is spot on and water pressure is good. The water does taste pretty bad even after being filtered twice. What a view we have here! We are close to all of the stores in Cottonwood and to Sedona, Jerome and the beautiful Oak Creek Canyon. There is fishing, hiking, geocaching, horse back riding and many other activities in the area. We definitely will stay here again and again!!
Typical KOA park with good electric and water hookups. Since we were only staying one night, we didn't get a sewer hookup site. We got the AARP discount of 10% which paid the taxes. This place would be good again for a one night stay.
We stayed 3 nights so we paid $20 for two nights and got the third night free. Heck of a deal. Free laundry which we availed ourselves of. We ate dinner in the clubhouse which was $10 for some pretty fine BBQ. The full hookups were great except for a trailer or 5er: your pickup truck would block the roadway while you are disconnecting. The hookups are a bit too far forward. This is a newish park built in 2007 and is the best around easily. We would stay here again.
The camping is free here like it is in many other casinos along I-40 so I will compare it to some of the others. The hookups were very good and the 50 AMP electricity was spot on. The parking spot compared to others could stand to be upgraded from its gravel and rotting railroad ties to pavement. I say this because if you spend money in the casino like most do, the camping may not be free at all. We would stay here again.
We used our Good Sams discount here. The water is very high pressure here so you will want to step it down some. The 50 AMP electric is spot on. The crushed limestone drives and parking spaces were rather dusty since it was dry here; it probably could get a bit sloppy in wet weather. The park overlooks a rather busy US 71 highway so the highway noise is is somewhat invasive when your rig is open. We spent one night here and would stay here again for only one night.
You have to pay an entry of $4 per vehicle per night to get into the park then $17 per night for the camping. We had to pay $8 to get both vehicles into the park then one night's camping. We only stayed one night but we definitely would come back again because there is a whole lot to do there. The park has beautiful trees and paved pads for most rigs. You must fill your water tank at one of the faucets nearby. They were adding more water faucets to the park and plan to have a faucet for each two sites I believe. There is a dump station that looked OK. We got a peek of the DirecTV sattellite through the trees so everyone was happy. Has a wonderful interpretive center that we didn't have time to get to.
Campground is clean and the electricity and water are good. The water pressure is high so you may want to use your pressure reducer. The spaces can be a bit close together for a noncommercial park. There was adequate room however. Lots of trees and a nice playground for our grandkids. Plenty of room for our toad in front of the coach. The park hosts were friendly. The lake is beautiful. We would stay here again in the future.
The park hosts were the absolute best we have seen in Iowa. The pull through we had would have been a little close if the park was totally filled because of side by side parking. The park wasn't full so there was a whole lot of room between rigs. The water, electricity and Wi-Fi were very good. Make sure you reserve a spot if you are going to be there for a holiday weekend. We will stay there often in the future because our daughter and husband have a lake condo close by.
For sure the finest RV park we have stayed at in Iowa. We are full-time RVers and many of the people staying here are full-timers. The daily rent shown is based on the per month rate. The place is spotless clean and there are really no junky rigs parked here. The pad we had was a concrete paved pull-through. The full hookup utilities were very new and really good; the electric was spot on. The laundry is both clean and very functional. They have a huge clubhouse toward the back of the park with pool table and other games, large screen TV, etc. The pond is real nice and well cared for. We definitely will stay here again.
We have the "geezer" pass which got us our camping for half price. We have camped in the A Loop which has only 30 AMP service and water for the past three years. Our preference is to camp in the A Loop. The pads are asphalt paved with a paved area for your towed auto or truck. Beautiful park close to the lock and dam on the Arkansas. Real close to Ft. Smith with great shopping. We love to geocache at the old Ft. Chaffee. We will definitely come here again.
We were pleasantly surprised with the high quality of this park, which is totally free when you get a Player's Club card and spend at least $10 in the casino. The water and 50 AMP electricity were excellent for the three nights we stayed here. There is a dump station closeby that can be accessed as you leave. We had no problem spending the $10 at the casino.
A good place to stay for one night. The electricity was borderline "hot". The other connections were adequate. You pay here on the honor system. If you want cable TV it is an extra dollar. We stopped by the "park" west of town. That place was real dismal and they wanted $28 for a 50 AMP site with 10% off for Good Sam. There was no one there so we hot footed it to K & K in town. We would stay here again for only one night.
The owner was really nice and showed us to our spot. He even gave us free WiFi for the two nights we were there. The place is real junky and has almost entirely trailers and mobile homes of people who seem to be living there full time. During the two nights we were there no other RVs came in to camp there. All of the hookups were adequate. We did not use the cable TV since our dish served us well enough. We definitely would not stay here again. The whole place was rather dismal.
The owners are just wonderful here; they greeted us very well and led us to our site. They came back later with numerous brochures and info on the area which was much appreciated. The park sites are gravel and all of the hookups were adequate. The problem we always have with these kinds of parks however is just how close together all of the rigs are parked in their sites; we really don't like that. We are Escapees so we got their special rate of 50% off the regular rate. There is a good place next door to get your rig in to get propane if you need it.
The owner of this place was very helpful when we checked in. She even directed us to our camp site. Boy, talk about being out in the middle of nowhere; this is it. The sites are very fine gravel and adobe clay and possibly could become muddy in a rainstorm. The hookups were fine but the water pressure was a bit low. Beautiful scenery. We were lucky to be here to see the full moon coming up over the mountains. If we both hadn't been sick with colds, we would have availed ourselves of the superb birding and the geocaches hidden around here.
We love this park; it is one of the finest we stay at. The only problem I can see with it at all is the dump station in the B loop is a real bottle neck which can only handle one rig at a time. If they would only open the dump site close to the exit of the park, I would be extremely happy. They have this dump which can handle two rigs at a time locked up tight. Everything else at the park is superbe, the hosts, the showers, the camp sites, everything. We will come back here again and again!
We have stayed here for two weeks each year since 2001 since we have so many family and friends in the area. We have watched things improve here over the years. The new 50 amp service now is super. We have never had a bad spot in the park. Now, they are building a new visitor center which should be finished next time we come through the area. It is close to Mesa with everything you will ever need. The thing they could improve in all of the Regional Parks in the county is recycling; the only thing they take is aluminum cans. This overall is one of the best parks we stay in each year. It is so popular, you may have have to stay in the overflow area a while before you can get a spot in the campground. The hosts are real helpful and friendly.
Super park! Lots of room between sites. Great hiking on wonderful trails. The hosts and the park rangers are great. The host comes to your rig to collect your money for your stay. Don't leave your bird feeders out overnight because the javalinas will knock your shepherd hooks down and eat your seed and possibly your feeder as well. We also dump our bird water as well. Lots of coyotes howling at night. Love it here!
We stayed for a month so our cost per night was vastly reduced. Our son and his family live in Studio City, and this park is less than a 30 minute commute on a good day; that was our only purpose for staying here. The office personnel were very friendly and answered all of our questions. The small store here is well stocked and has convenience store prices or a bit higher. You may want to check the dates on things like milk though. All hookups worked well in the park. We were disappointed that you could only recycle aluminum cans and glass bottles here. They sell propane and is a great spot to fill up. The sites are crushed rock and grass which did not get muddy when it rained. We will stay here again in the future.
A real nice park with great pleasant management. All hookups worked properly. They are putting in new electrical hookups which should be ready in the near future. We had to hook up our 50 AMP coach to older 30 AMP electric this time. The voltage was adequate. The place is clean and a general sprucing up was going on while we were here. Since we stayed here a month and a half, we got to know them very well. They handle mail and deliveries very well here for you. The beach is a very short walk out the fence. We would definitely stay here again. If staying during a holiday make reservations well in advance of your stay.
Super place to camp to check out the whole beautiful area. Totally paved area with all hookups in the rear of the back-ins. The sewer hookup is probably going to be a bit far away; so you may need to add length to your sewer hose to dump. The host was super friendly and gave us the best spot in the park. The front of the spot was a bit downhill but we got as level as we could. Still wonderful. The airport provides a bit of noise from time to time.
Super location. Calistoga is out of the high traffic area just south with super wineries real close by. Some of the spots are a bit close together but the one we moved to was one of the best in the center pull-through area. Would definitely go there again.
You save $2 per night by getting a Players Club card at the casino. The staff is superior to most other parks; they were very helpful. All sites are paved with new services. Close to casino and shopping. There is security that drives around the park 24 hours a day. Also, there is a casino shuttle. We won at the casino!!
Very crowded park because of all of the petroleum activity in the area. Spots pretty close together. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. We used 30 AMP connection instead of 50 AMP to save money. The voltage here is borderline low in the park and our electrical box blew out while we were here and fried our neighbor's electrical plug for his trailer. The wind blows a lot here; a good place for Picken's wind generators.
The office staff was very friendly and helpful. The WIFI was very weak so we used our Verizon Broadband card. Very clean park. Owners have only had the park since August ,but you can tell they are going to do a great job with the park.
One of the very best commercial parks we have ever stayed at. When we arrived, we were properly greeted, and told more than we ever hoped to know about the park and the Abilene area. We were escorted to our site, and the host made sure everything was fine with the site. He even assisted us in our parking. I felt as though I was registering at a five star hotel. Everything works here; the voltage was spot on; the WiFi works much better here than my Verizon Broadband; the place was very clean and everything, and I mean everything, was freshly painted. You will want to add this park to your itinerary whenever traveling through Texas; just leave room for me when I return again! As the gubernator says, "I will be back".
Good park with great management ready to assist you in any way. The 50 amp service showed a little low in voltage on our gauge but still adequate. Everything else is real nice for being in a real dismal place on a real dismal super windy day. We waited out the wind event for two nights. Chuey's Restaurant is a real good one in town; check it out.
One of the very worst. We had to move over to the KOA in Van Horn to spend two more nights due to severe wind event in the area. The electricity was really funky on our 30 amp connection; I don't know if there are any 50 amp sites in this park. We couldn't find any. Don't plan to use your microwave or convection oven here. This park gives Passport America's already dubious reputation an even more tarnished reputation. I believe I will dump Passport America and join KOA's travel club.
The part up front that we stayed in for 5 days was pretty dusty and marginal. Even though we parked in a pull-through site, we had to back out the way we drove in because of low hanging branches of unkept and unpruned trees. We only stayed here because we wanted to be close to the wonderful birding in the area. The park is very dusty with red dirt everywhere. I would not want to be here in a rainstorm. The hookups were adequate for our 50 amp system since we weren't using either of our air conditioners. The water here is pretty decent.
The new managers are pretty good, but new to their job. Park is two blocks to the beach. The spaces seem to stay wet much of the time. Park is clean and well cared for. Hookups are rather new and excellent.
Park was beautiful but some of the sites were tight for our 38 ft. motorhome; we had to move three times while we were there. Many things were great but the one complaint we had was that the 30 Amp electricity was low voltage when the park was half full and totally unusable when the park was full on the Thanksgiving holiday. There are great hikes in the park and a wonderful golf course in the park.
Real average park. Our experience with the lady at the front desk was awful. She was real nasty to us when we checked in; she could have been having a bad day though. The dump station was located in a real awkward spot for a large motorhome to use so we didn't dump here. We did enjoy our time here as long as we didn't have to encounter the woman at the front desk. The restaurant was great here and their ribs are a must have. Will probably stay here again if in the area.
We stay here twice every year both as we head south in the fall and as we return in the spring. These people who manage the place are the absolute best. They remember us from year to year and escort us right to our camp site. Everything works here and the sites are extremely level. The Coachlight RV dealership is also the best anywhere and their shop is said to be as good or better than the Newmar factory shop. We will go there over and over in the future and will probably purchase our next motorhome at the dealership.
The work campers working here are real nice people and they treated us very well. The park has a few spots for big motorhomes with beautiful views of the ocean. We were high on a bluff overlooking Pacific Coast Highway. The crashing of the surf was very loud at times and made you feel like you were camped right on the beach. The park is absolutely beautiful with flowers everywhere. We deployed our bird feeders and had numerous humming birds and seed eating birds visit. The few full time people living in the park were a whole lot of fun to be with. The overall experience at the park was wonderful!
