Note that we stayed here in November, so we did not have a problem with insects. This park is very isolated so don't expect a lot of common shopping and fast food places nearby. Those are about 20 or more miles away. However, if you do some research you'll find some good local restaurants nearby (e.g. Courtney's Seafood) and there is a well stocked hardware store nearby. The staff was friendly and we noticed staff patrolling several times a day. Sites were clean and level. We stayed in Tulip Loop so we had full hookups. All things considered, I'd hate to pay the full rate here. We used the Golden Age pass which gives a 50% discount. We came here specifically for the historical stuff related to the Civil War prison camp, but it would also be a great place for fishing, kayaking, etc in season. We found it to be a great place to kick back and relax a few days, but I suspect it would be quite different in season because it would be considerably more crowded.

Considering the scarcity of campgrounds in the Richmond area, this place was completely acceptable for our 8 night stay. The campground is not fancy, has no amenities but we found the staff to be friendly as well as the people in the adjacent mobile home community (walked our dog there several times). It is convenient for driving into Richmond and food, fuel and shopping centers are nearby. Yes it is on Hwy 1,but the traffic noise was very light at night and did not disturb us at all. We would stay here again for a trip to Richmond. Rate reflects the "Kosmo Club" discount. Be sure to check that out if you'll be staying more than two nights. It's a $5 per night discount for up to 14 nights per year, for a fee of $10.

No doubt that the strengths of this campground are its overwhelmingly convenient location to the Williamsburg attractions and shuttle service, plus the very friendly staff; it is also very clean and well-kept. We were a bit disappointed in the Wi-Fi considering that they stress in their advertising how good it is supposed to be. It is not bad, but our expectations were very high because of the advertising. We did experience a few dropouts and slowdowns but overall it was very usable, just not "the best" that we were expecting. The only notable downside for us was the trains. They were not the worst we've experienced but on a few occasions they did startle us awake. We would not let that prevent us from going there again, but be warned. Some trains do go through late at night and in the early morning plus all during the day. Overall, I don't think you could beat this place for a visit to Williamsburg, especially using the Passport rates. If you can tolerate trains, it is unbeatable. Our rating would have been at least two points higher were if not for them. Average rate reflects PA discount.

This campground is fairly new and is a work in progress, as more amenities are being added. There is a nice playground on the site and there are laundry facilities. Hookups are new and conveniently laid out. Owner was very helpful and friendly. There are not many campgrounds in this general area, so it is good to have another choice now. The main negatives are the frequent noisy trains on the double track just across the road, and the sites could be more level. It is also cash only unless you want to pay a 10% surcharge to use a check or credit card. The trains are our main reason for a "4" rating. I indicated "don't know" as to big rig accommodations; although some sites may be OK, the turns are relatively tight. Plus I don't think all of the sites are long enough for a big rig. It would be best to call and make sure that an appropriate site is available if you are in a long rig.

Very nice clean campground with a friendly staff. Stayed here a week. It is convenient to Staunton and is reasonably close to Harrisonburg and Charlottesville so it makes a good home base for touring the area. No cable TV. And the heavy tree cover makes satellite TV a challenge; we could never get a clear shot to the satellite from our site. If that is important to you, scout out the view before you settle on a site. Wi-Fi was mostly reliable--just a bit erratic during peak periods. We would gladly stay here again.

Nice, clean campground. Convenient to Hwy 11 and for visiting the surrounding area. We had to use a Wi-Fi antenna to get good reception, but the system was reliable once we had the stronger signal. Cable TV had a good variety of channels. We would not hesitate to stay here again. Onsite supplies and a snack bar add to the convenience. It is a family-oriented campground, so if you don't like to be around children you might want to avoid holiday weekends.

This was great for an overnight stay -- handy to town, fuel and the interstate. Site was level. Dump station was handy, and so was the potable water access. No sewer or water at the sites, electric only. Clean park, scenic lake with quite a few people using it for fishing. Swimming was also permitted in designated area. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Very nice and handy little park. Nothing fancy, but it has everything you need for a stay. Close to stores, fuel, food and the interstate, good Wi-Fi, great cable TV, clean, shade available, propane available, and friendly owner. Sites are level and gravel. We would not hesitate to stay here again.

Very nice park. Not far from town. Park was clean and well-maintained, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The pizza place on-site is very handy and they deliver to your site for free. The camp store was quite well stocked. Shade was available on many sites and some paved sites were available. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Our nightly rate reflects two nights at the Passport rate and one night at the Good Sam rate.

We stayed here a month while doing genealogy research downtown, so the nightly rate reflects the discount for the month's stay. This is one of the best campgrounds we have stayed at. Sites were paved and level, entire place is well-managed and very convenient to downtown SLC and interstate access. Staff is very attentive and helpful; good convenience store; good handling of mail and packages; two onsite car washes; very good laundry facilities. We would have rated this a 10, but the WiFi was very erratic. That should be corrected soon, as the park has a major WiFi upgrade that is supposed to be completed later this summer.

Spaces were tight, or I would have given this a higher rating. Park was clean, well-run, efficient and helpful staff. Very convenient to attractions. Very nice pool and hot tub. Wi-Fi worked very well. Large number of longer-term guests. Excellent places to walk pets. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Stayed here 3 nights; quite convenient to town, fuel, and the interstate. Reasonably clean, felt secure. Level sites. Had some park water system problems while we were there, and the laundry was totally unusable. Wifi worked reasonably well. Would be fine to stay here again.

While this park was pricy, it provided a very clean and convenient setting with lots of shade. Wi-Fi worked reasonably well. Sites were a bit close together and there were a lot of longer-term guests, but units were attractive and well-kept. Helpful office staff and the grounds keepers kept things neat. Would stay here again, but I surely wish there were discounts available. If there were, we'd probably have stayed longer.

Stayed here while visiting Yosemite. Paved, level sites with good shade available. A bit out of the way, but was quiet. Wi-Fi worked reasonably well. Host was helpful. Laundry facilities very neat and clean. Other than the winding couple mile road necessary to get there from the main highway, this was a nice place to stay. It was a great base camp for Yosemite.

Enjoyed 4 nights here while visiting Sequoia and Kings Canyon NP's. While this park is a bit pricey, it offers a pretty setting, lots of shade and a stream. Good place for pets. Extremely accommodating office staff. We would gladly stay here again.

Clean park, but dusty because of gravel sites and roads. Excellent Wi-Fi. Stayed here while visiting Death Valley; was glad to have some shade. Excellent laundry, pool and spa facilities. Friendly staff. Attractive cactus garden with koi in park. Overall, a very pleasant park that we would gladly stay in again.

Stayed only one night, and park was excellent for the Passport America price. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Wi-Fi worked OK. Efficient check-in and out. Would be glad to stay here again.

Enjoyed 4 nights here. Clean, but of course dusty in the desert and no shade. Wi-Fi worked great. Power and water were reliable. Convenient to town and Big Bend. Host was extraordinarily helpful when I ran into a small plumbing issue. Most definitely would stay here again.

Minimally satisfactory park, but was fine for an overnight stop. The sites were dusty and there seemed to be an excessive amount of "cut through" traffic ,and the park could have been kept cleaner and freer of debris. Our site was not very level. But owner was helpful and friendly and the park was convenient to fuel and the interstate.

Very clean park. Good roads and level campsites. Stayed here two nights and would certainly do so again.

Very pretty setting; nice campground. Quiet and secluded. This would be a great place to stay for a while; our stay was a night. Although the campground can handle big rigs, the access roads were not designed for them; be sure to go slow on the several miles of narrow curved road leading to it.

Very quiet, secluded place. We stayed here one night while passing through on Hwy 60. Very large campground, but sites do not have sewer hookups. Very friendly, helpful host. Would be tough to find a nicer place for an overnight stop at the $6 PA rate! However, dumping is an extra fee for PA. Also, no children--adults only.

Nice, quiet, secluded small campground as part of a city park. Although RV sites are not "on" the water, most are just across a dirt road from the water and there may be a site or two on the water. We enjoyed it for an overnight stop but it is not ideally suited for large rigs. However, it is manageable if you're mindful of the tight turns and narrow streets. Unhooking would be mandatory if the park were busy; we were here in October and did not unhook although we took up a couple of spaces. Be sure to check the power pedestals; the first two we tried had a polarity problem. That is why we only rated it a "3".

We found this to be a very pleasant park. Very quiet, nice surroundings (several small ponds and stream) and convenient to Hutchinson and Wichita attractions and very convenient to Newton. Passport America rate of $13.50 (full hookups, including taxes) made this an excellent place for us to stay a couple weeks. We just found it to be an altogether nice place to relax and "kick back".

A rather plain park; hosts were friendly and helpful. For the $19 rate, this is a suitable park. The biggest drawback was that the first row of sites is on a street that actually is used as a through street--traffic was obtrusive at times, and even school buses ran through in the a.m. and stirred up a lot of dust on the dirt road. We would have rated it higher had it not been for the traffic noise and dust. Sites are a bit short for longer rigs (ours is 42'); utilities were reliable and there are convenience items in the on-site store.

Very basic park offering exactly what is advertised: "specializing in overnight sites for the weary I-40 cross-country traveler". Entry to campground looks very run-down and there's an old pool no longer in use with weeds growing in it. Registration and payment are self-serve; campground is clean, and sites are level. It is fine for people like us who just want a reasonably-priced, convenient place to park for a night or a few nights. It is close to the airport, and planes do fly over on the approach; however, the airport is not very busy. Very convenient to I-40 and very little road noise from it. There are no restrooms, laundry or showers available. Overall, for $10 (the Passport America rate) this park is fine--just don't expect more than the bare basics. The main reason we rated it a "3" is because of the run-down entry appearance.

Very nice, clean campground with friendly owners. Where these days can you find someone with the "honor system" for paying for drinks, ice cream, etc? Owners live on site, and we felt it was very secure. Great place surrounding the park to walk dogs and let them play. We would not hesitate to stop here again and would recommend it with no hesitation. It was far enough out of town to escape traffic congestion and noise, but still a very short drive to everything we wanted to see. $22 rate includes tax and an AARP discount.

This campground fit our needs very well in a place as isolated and hot as the Badlands. It is family-run and all of them are extremely congenial and helpful. The pool was great in the hot weather of July. The small restaurant with the "all you can eat" cowboy stew for supper or pancakes for breakfast (plus burgers) is very handy to have around because this is such an isolated place. The on-site small store also supplied basic needs. The campground is far from fancy, but if you want a place that provides reliable electric power for your air conditioners, good water, and good western hospitality this place should suit you fine. (One word of caution: 50-amp sites didn't have full hookups; full hookups are 30-amp. The owner let us park in a 50-amp site and extend our sewer hose over to the adjacent 30-amp site, so we had the best of both worlds). The $15 rate includes taxes and reflects the weekly/Good Sam discount.

We found this to be overall one of the best small campgrounds we've stayed in. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and the campground was meticulously clean and well-kept. It is a good "basic" campground, not many amenities. The $19 average daily rate included taxes and a weekly-rate discount.

This is a good basic campground. The staff/owners were very friendly and helpful. It is nothing fancy, but served our needs very well as a place to serve as a base while we toured the area. We felt it was a much better value than the campgrounds on the west side of Zion--the east side is less commercial and generally less expensive. With the weekly and Good Sam discounts our daily rate averaged $19 including taxes.

This KOA is convenient to Bryce Canyon National Park. We found it to be "tight" and a bit difficult to maneuver to the sites at the upper end of the campground. The sites generally are narrow for today's RV's with multiple slides. We found it difficult to walk around the motorhome with our slides extended. Overall, we felt this campground was acceptable; however, we felt it was overpriced. The $28 includes taxes but reflects the KOA and weekly discounts. We would have felt much better had the rate been around $20 or a bit less.

This is a very convenient park when visiting Capitol Reef and the surrounding area. Staff was very friendly and the camp has "cowboy suppers", fresh-baked bread for purchase plus you can put in your order each night for fresh-baked muffins of several varieties! The rate for us averaged $19 with taxes, including the weekly and Good Sam discounts. Overall, a good value and nice place to stay.

We enjoyed our stay here while touring the Moab area. The Passport America/weekly rate of $14 (including taxes) per night makes this an outstanding value. It is a "no frills" campground, but that is exactly what we look for--we tour during the day and just want a campground that is clean, secure and has good hookups. The owner was also very helpful and friendly. Would not hesitate to stay here again--just don't look for swimming pools, recreation areas, etc.

At the $12 Passport America rate this campground is hard to beat. Very clean, excellent security, easy access and a convenience store on site. We stayed two nights while touring the area; we wish more campgrounds were as clean. It is an excellent value and a great place to stop for a night or two.

We stayed here one week and the rate averaged $14 including tax. Overall, we felt this was an excellent value. It is very close to I-40 but far enough away to minimize traffic noise. The nearby Love's is extremely easy to get to and there is also a Petro and Chevron nearby. Very easy access to all the sites around Grants. The biggest drawback for us was the close proximity to the very busy railroad--about 20 or more trains per day and, unfortunately, there is a crossing nearby so each train blows its air horn--this can be very annoying at night if you cannot "tune it out".

We were a bit tense about staying here because of so many reviews in which people had been evicted because of trouble with dogs (our Chihuahua can be noisy). We were especially careful with him and carried him to the walk areas to ensure no "accidents". The park was very clean, but there is some noise from the airport and the very busy railroad tracks. The owner was quite friendly and our dog behaved; we did not witness any unusual inspections or observations regarding pets. Overall, however, we thought the campground was overpriced. We would have felt much better had we been paying only $18 - $22 per night rather than $28. Note that this did include extra charges for 50-amp and cable.

Almost did not stay here because of the earlier reviews, especially regarding mud and being cramped. This used to be a KOA and we found it to be quiet and clean. There appear to be a lot of "longer term" campers but the overall atmosphere is pleasant and nothing looked "trashy" to us. Roads are gravel; there are some tight turns that we had no trouble with in a 42' motorhome with toad. There was one low limb that allowed some minor brushing of the roof; we will report that to the management. For the $14 (including tax and 50-amp) Passport America rate, this campground is a very good value.
