This park was in the Good Sam parks book as a Good Sam park, however it is NOT a good Sam Park any longer. It is very run down, dirty with poor hook ups. We will not stay there again.

This campground is full of temporary workers, the RV sites are not kept up and the workers come and go all hours day and night with loud trucks. Not a good place to get a good nights sleep. This could be a excellent campground if it was kept up and maintained better.

Most of the short term sites do not have sewer. There is so much to do in the area so the park is full most of the time in the summer months. Because of the local entertainment we have used this park for 5 years as a family reunion site. They work hard to meet our needs and get the family all camped in the same general area. The management is nice and tries hard to meet all needs. There is such a large turnover of campers it is hard to keep the showers/restrooms clean and they do try, however every time we needed them they were dirty and needed cleaning. With such a large turnover, many tents and no sewer it would be very hard to keep them clean all the time. The advantages are all the things for the kids/families to do in the area and at the campground. We will stay there again with our family.

Very nice people run the park, they care about the folks stopping at the park. Even came by to warn us about the wind and my awning before it was too late. It's an old park and needs up grading, also a very quiet park. We stayed three days because it was so restful. Only planned to stay overnight. The electrical could stand up dating, we never were able to maintain a steady 50 amps. We will stay here again.

Christian family campground, nice folks out in the country. Very quiet with mostly seasonal people except on the weekends when it gets busy. If you are looking for a nice family camping trip, this is a good place.

Good overnight stop with a long turn around since you must go up the hill to check in, and then go back to the entrance to park for overnight. Has nice people and the short term sites were plenty big, but had no sewer hookups.

Nice friendly place to stay. We have stayed here many times and would give them higher rating if they would up-grade the restrooms. Showers are old small, in need of new shower heads. The restrooms are also very dark, need new lighting. Great overnight stop.

Very nice and friendly staff who met us at the entrance and drove us right to our site and then said we could check in after we got set up. Great way to do business. Quiet and restful night as the campground is located over a mile from I-10, so there was no road noise to brother us. We will stay there anytime we are in the area.

Bathrooms dirty did not appear to have been cleaned in over 24 hours. Very close to I-10, noisy and train ran often providing even more noise. At check in the clerk was in a hurry not friendly and only provided info if asked. Very expensive for a stop for one night in which we asked just for electric, no water or sewer was asked for or used. Will not stay there again or recommend it to others.

This is a new campground and one of the best we have ever stayed in. The sites were set up the way every site should be set up. The staff was excellent and did all they could to make sure our needs were met. We will go the extra mile to stay here again.

We were there with a group and had group rates. Not many sites where a satellite will work due to all the trees. Nice campground and helpful friendly workers. May be a membership only campground, we are not sure however we would stay there again is we could.

We were very disappointed with this campground. Many trees making roads tight. Sites very narrow but long. Do not plan to use a satellite dish in this campground. We will not go back here.

Very nice management, a great quiet overnight stop. The site was very tight but long and well laid out so access is easy. When we stayed here many of the sites were being used by construction crews, however they were very quiet when leaving early in the am. Would stay here again anytime.

Water hook up bad, had to get water from another site, pressure very poor when park is full. Electric kept going off and on. Management very friendly and helpful, made us feel welcome. Not a good park to be in over a long holiday weekend.

Christian Family Owned campground is what they advertise and they do have mostly families staying here. They have a large Chapel and services on Sunday's that are pretty full. This is mostly a seasonal campground with many RV's parked for the long term, a weekend getaway for most. Very few short term visitors in fact we were the only ones here in May. Some pull though sites for short term campers however very narrow sites in some case would not even allow awnings to be open. Very clean restrooms, a game room and full service restaurant open on the weekends. Food was fair. Golf carts seem to be a major status symbol for the seasonal guests. Not a good place for roof mounted satellite dish use due to the large trees. Will stay here again but be very careful about selection of which site to park in.

Very clean well kept campground showing it's age as quite old. Management very helpful and made us feel very welcome; if only the location was further away from I-80. We are so close to the highway we can read the signs on the big trucks going by. The noise is so loud you cannot hear anything but road noise with the door or windows open. Not a place for a good night's sleep.

No one on duty when we arrived. Had a sign up saying they would return at 4:pm. One of the workers saw us come in and came to help us. Rules say check in time is anytime after 1:pm. Workers were very helpful after then came to office and checked on us later to make sure we were ok. We had reservation but no site assigned.

Busy overnight stop for RVers traveling that want just a place to park. Have van pick up at the campground for local eatery so you do not have to unhook to eat out. Place was mostly filled with carnival workers while we were there so traffic was heavy in and out at night. Many people that where not guests of the campground were using the ONE rest room they had.

Great location for travelers E/W or N/S. New campground 2 years old and everything works and was set up with the RVer in mind. Management was on site and very helpful and happy to have us there. Only minor problem was the restrooms were cold, but it was a very cold day and heater could not keep up with the wind. Highly recommend this campground.

Camp ground damaged by hurricane and have a hard time recovering. Restrooms still closed. Many workers staying there during rebuilding efforts in the area. Very nice management, trying hard to recover. Will be a very nice RV park again if they keep going on the current rebuilding work.

Very nice people running this fair ground, now used for Flea market one week per month. They over night camping or long term, however must remember it is not a RV park. Close to highway I-10 with fast food within walking distance of the grounds. Most of the sites are very old, the pull thru sites are new with updated utilities. It makes a good over night stop after a long day of driving.

Very nice county owned and run park, great for fishing, boating access from the park to the Gulf. Very quiet 10 miles from main highway. Staff friendly and helpful. If you want to get away this is the place to do it. Full during the winter months so suggest you call ahead for space before making 20 mile round trip to highway.

This park is no longer a KOA, they accept the Good Sam card but not KOA, the price has gone down some since the last time we stayed there as a KOA. Very friendly and helpful staff, park very clean. Very nice steak house within walking distance of the park, also a RV dealership near the entrance to the park.

This park was the Franklin RV Ranch and before that it was the Franklin KOA. It is badly in need of repairs and upkeep and the new owners are doing them, they are working very hard to get it back into a first class operation. New water lines have been completed, the restrooms and showers are remodeled and very clean. The sites are not level, however they are working on them and this should become a very nice park. The management is very helpful, friendly and concerned for their guests. Getting into the park requires one watching the road closely as there is a extra turn required due to road construction, but worth the effort as the staff at the campground is trying hard to please the guests.

This campground was the KOA in Auburn, but no longer, they were taking the KOA sign down the day we stayed there. The manager not very happy with KOA and it showed in her dealings with us. This is a great stop for overnight when traveling I-69 and a good location for anything in and around Ft Wayne, In. Everything was clean and worked well, but it is due for some upgrading at the sites. We will stay there again when in the area.

Lots of pine trees with pine cones and sap, not good for TV reception, sites very long but tight on the sides due to the trees and how close the sites are to each other. Bathrooms were cold. We had items stolen from our site. Wireless internet is only good withing about 40 feet of the office. Would not stay there again.

Great campground for kids, they have planned activities all day long. They do a poor job of policing the dog problem, dog crap all over campground and many people did not even have dogs on leash, which was overlooked by the staff. Way over priced if you do not have kids. They should lower rates and then charge on a use basis for activities, that way RVer's would not have to pay for things they do not use.

Over night stop or for a couple of days ok, very quiet, as it is a way off the roads. People are nice and after you pay them you do not see anyone again. They do have a dump station but it is not on the road out. You camp out in a big open field on grass. Roads are all paved.

Our rate included a discount for military. Very nice people on the staff that want to please, but they really cram a lots of rv's in small area even back to back or front to back. Sites are all rock would not be a good place for pets. Works great as a place to park while you are off during the day sight seeing with the Canyon about 60 miles away. Picked up Marvelous Marv's Canyon tour which would recommend to everyone and they pick you up at the campground.

This is not a RV campground, it should be called a Park Model Park as most of the sites have been turned in to Park Model sites. The rates vary by the season and it is a very old campground with many of the people living there having been there 20 years or more. They have good security because the gates are closed by 8PM each night and you really feel like your in lock down conditions. People are friendly but stand offish as most have known each others for years. They have changed ownership twice in 4 years and managers twice in one year, plus the park is run by a very large management company hired by the owners to run the park. The last manager had no "0" people skills and the park was in an uproar the whole time we were there. We stayed there for 4 months from December 2005 to March 2006. Sites very small and tight, may not be able to open awnings when site next to you is filled. You can do much better in this area at other parks. New managers started first of March and do seem to have some people skills so things may improve. You pay for electric as it is metered and expensive.

Very nice campground with friendly helpful management, however it is high priced for that area of the county with many campgrounds around it with much lower rates for the same facilities. They do not have very many site that will handle a big rig, lots of trees and narrow roads. Very clean rest rooms, warm, bright and great showers.

Passport America park, very small with very friendly people running the park, however the park has a public laundry mat right in the center of it. It was very noisy all hours of the day and night. Dirt roads left everything very dusty with extra charges for electric, regular rate is $20 or $10 for site then you must add $1 for 30 amp or $2 for 50 amp service. Much of the park is full time campers but for just a one night stop if you can deal with the traffic to the laundry it will work. The town is pretty well dead with just a couple of fast food restaurants still open.

Good park for a overnight stop or a couple of days while touring the area, however it is a old campground and the sites are very tight with lots of trees to consider when parking and setting up. Under new management and the young couple that own it now are working hard to improve the campground, and they are very nice and friendly easy to deal with. Do not plan on using a dish at this campground due to the many nice and mostly old trees. Very shady campground.

Great park, with very friendly people working hard to make you feel welcome and handle any needs you may have. One and only draw back is the trees, which are all big beautiful and offer plenty of shade but also give off lots of droppings including acorns that would drop on the roof all day and night. Had to clean the top of the slides before leaving due to the many acorns. Other than that it is one of the best campgrounds we have staying in and worth putting up with the trees. Do not plan to use a satellite dish in this park. We will go back anytime we are in that area.

Make sure you are not located in the lower number sites such as site #10, they are located right next to a major highway and the noise from the road is loud and goes on all day and all night. You cannot enjoy the outdoors with all the noise, also those sites are close to the office and store another source for noise, not the area of the park to enjoy a restful visit. The site in the back are wonderful with more room and less noise. We had a problem over one weekend with a family with a Karoke machine and serveral kids and adults using it very loudly all day and night, the park rangers did nothing to quiet it down and we were sure glad to see them leave. The workers are all friendly and helpful and the location is great for sight seeing and enjoying the area. We will come back but will only due so if we can get a site in the back of the campground.

This campground has gone from a very nice place to stay and visit to a very poor example of a jellystone park. The prices are going up so much that you can almost afford to stay in a good motel, plus some of the service that were there before have been discontinued even as the prices went up such as cable TV and wireless internet service. There is a lot to do for the children but the sites are very small and on a weekend you cannot move around in the park; it is so crowded and dangerous with many of the services such as game room, golf, store being located right at the main entrance to the camping areas. We will not go back; have gone for years and went twice this year but it has gotten too big to be fun.

This park is a big mobile home park with maybe 60 campsites around the small lake. It is very old and needs repair and upgrades in order to be called a compground. The electric is very bad and not enough current to run an air conditioner, in fact the electricity would shut down in our rig often due to low voltage. The people that run the campground are wonderful, friendly and warm family oriented willing to help in anyway they can. The water is very hard with lots of iron in it and all the hookups are very poorly located on the site, making connections to the rig hard and in some cases even have to be run under the rig. This could be a great campground, however it is not now and we can not recommend it.

Not big rig friendly; the owners will tell you that they can get big rigs in but it is so tight you cannot open your awnings and there is no place on the site to park the tow vehicle or toad. The sites are very narrow if you have slides you will need to watch the trees. It is a very convenient location with many things to do and see in a 30 miles radius. We enjoyed our stay, however we were never at the campground except to sleep. Has great potential and the new owners are working hard to improve the place, and it is well maintained with friendly helpful people working there. Will stay again however need to be careful to select the right site for our rig.

Sites are very tight to get into and out of due to the many big trees. Mostly oak trees and all day and night the acorns would drop on the rig. Be sure to clean off the roofs of the slides before putting them in due to the droppings from the trees. Most of the sites are only rented out for the season; very few open for short term stays. They have Broadband in the game room for $2.00 per day, charges for running airconditioning is $2.00 per day which you must pay up front then when you do not use it you must request a refund, which on the day we left we did not get because the office does not open until 10:00 am most days and we wanted to leave early. This park is advertised as a alcohol free park, but we saw more drining in this park then in most we stay in, they just attempted to hide it or in many cases never tried to hide it, but the park management is not there after 6:00 PM so not sure who you would have reported it to and never saw a ranger or anytype of security patrols. They do have plenty of speed bumps at the entrance to the park. In our travels around the county as fulltimer RVers we see lots of great campgrounds and most do not have the high rating this one has and after having stayed in it we are not sure how it got this high of a rating compared to some many other nicer campgrounds. Would not stay here again unless no other choice; not worth the price.

Older campground that is in need of some upgrades in the bathhouses etc...; however it is well maintained and the staff was friendly and helpful but pre-occupied with kids she was watching.

Big campground with lots of open green space, new section has large pull thru sites with lots of grass, however the very new wireless internet service did not quite reach that section of the campground. Owner stated that he was adding a new wireless tower that would reach all the sites. Friendly people owned by a RVer family and they understand the needs of Rvers. Plenty to do in a 30 mile radius of the campground. Will go back anytime we are in that area.

Out of the way and in the woods; you need to like lots of trees to stay long at this campground. There is no cable for TV and satellite dishes will not work due to the many trees. There is a lot to do within 50 mile radius of the campground and the owners and staff are very friendly and helpful. Not a place to be in a storm due to the trees, however it is well maintained and the owners do all they can to please the guests. Most interior roads are dirt or rock and hard to walk on or ride bike on.

Very nice campground with a lot to see in a 50 miles radius of the campground. Each Saturday night they have a country western show called the Middle Creek Opry, it is very good and reasonable priced. It is a quiet well maintained campground, however the water is very hard and has lots of iron in it. We enjoyed our visit very much, not much to do for kids; did not see any playground equipment etc. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

This campground has grown too fast and they have lost sight of the customer. They did have wireless service and have removed it, they did have cable tv and removed it, our experience in past years were pretty good, but since they have grown so much the people are not as friendly or helpful, they have a take it or leave it approuch now, yet the rates keep going up. We will not go back and that is after having gone there for many years. Growth has hurt them.
