Very east access from MI 28 if you are crossing the state. Close to a casino that has three restaurants. The park is still in process of adding more campsites which will all be pull throughs. The individual showers are very nice and clean. The laundry consists of 4 washers and 4 dryers which worked well and quite clean. This was our second trip here since we wanted to visit the Shipwreck Museum at Whitefish Point..

Back again, the grass has filled in and as before this is a no frills park situated in Shipshewana. We used a full hookup site which most are back to back pull throughs. There are no bath houses on the site as no restrooms, so being self contained is a must. Still the best deal in town.

Rate includes Good Sam discount. Big rigs stay away from this campground. In 5 years of fulltiming this campground would be in the top five of being "user unfriendly." What a mess. Of course, they are listed as "big rig friendly" in the books and on their website and I have to say our site was nice, but fairly narrow. However, going in they have metal road signs on stands in the roadway and you have to wind your way around them. All traffic going to the west side of the campground (which is where the big rig sites are) must enter and exit on the same road and the approaches and the turn itself are not much wider than one lane, so you must sit and wait. As we approached the turn we notice a large semi truck waiting to come out, after supplying the camp store. We couldn't turn and neither could he, so we drove on and used the map to get ourselves around the roads and headed back the right direction. We were back in an older section with very tight turns and two way traffic on one lane roads. We finally ended up back where we were to take a turn and went the wrong direction and drove right back out of the park on the roads we were supposed to be going in the opposite direction! There is no where to turn around. We drove three miles back down the road to turn around and then drove back into the camp. This time a large 45-foot motorhome was coming out. We both squeaked by each other and we finally made the turn and got back into our camp. This park needs to have one way roads for access or the owner needs to fire up a bulldozer, knock down some trees and widen some turns. There is an exit to the highway from the area we were parked in, but it has a cable across it. How about an exit-only gate to route the traffic out of this mess. Also we were told our site was "satellite friendly", it wasn't. Access to the propane fill station is as bad as the roads in, so we didn't fill. Glad we stayed one night only, that's enough of this park for us from now on, we will not be back.

This park has sites with water, electric and sewer and sites with water and electric only. The rate shown is for water and electric only. Water pressure is good, as is the power. The laundry, individual showers and bathrooms are very well maintained. The Baymills Casino complex is across the street.

Rate is for overflow 30amps and water. Full hookup sites are taken by seasonal campers. Power voltage was low, had our power management system kick out once due to low voltage. Regular sites were available, but in trees for $25 night. Opted for same connections w/o trees for less $, so all satellite systems would work.

Rate reflects added tax. Access to the highway was easy, has large sites with several pull throughs. 50amp sites are 50 amp only, same as 30 amp sites. Well taken care of, versus some of the recent campgrounds we have found on US2 across MN and WI. The pull through sites are for the most part, satellite friendly at the east end, tall trees could block signals at the west end. Verzion cells or aircards will not work at this campground, however our ATT "work" phone had "4 bars". WiFi was very strong several hundred yards from the office, repeaters worked well. But at $31, it's overpriced for parking on grass.

Many seasonal sites in this campground. Has easy access from the highway. Lady who checked us in, gave glowing remarks on the restaurant/bar across road. Took over an hour to get our food and we were two of the very few that ordered kitchen items. Would we stay here again? Maybe, there are few campgrounds in the area can handle a 40' motorhome that is towing.

Water stands on some of the paved sites, we had to move due to two inches of water at the front of our site. Has few 50amp sites, many 30amp. Shuttle to casino was excellent. Staff was very helpful.

The rate given includes the Passport America discount. Most hookups are back to back and end to end. Drives need some attention. The site where we parked sloped quite a bit from one end to the other, with the sewer hookup running slightly uphill. Would we stay again, probably not, would check out the other campground in town.

This place needs work. The the pull through sites are unlevel grass, ours had deep depressions where we need to park. The access roads through the restaurant parking lot are very rough. Most of the full hookup sites are taken by long term residents, looking quite trashy. Not really worth the $24 paid, but it's the only place in town. The other "campground" here, is now filled with permanent FEMA surplus trailers being used possibly as rentals. Upside, the sites are larger than those found at the two private campgrounds in Medora and not as dusty.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. This park is very nice, but I feel it's over-priced by about $10 per night. It has nice paved sites, roads and approaches with three sewer connections on each site. The check-in desk with the restaurant and liquor store are better than many. On the downside, the grass is spotty and hard to walk on. The shower floors could need some attention paid to the peeling paint. Children, teens and adults were allowed to ride 4 wheeled ATVs at much more than the 10 MPH speed limit for the park and disturb other visitors. Seemed strange that no one under 10 years old was allowed in the pool, bath house or hot-tub, without an adult. However, the same kids could run up and down the streets and off-road on the landscaped berms between the campground and the highway, without helmets on ATVs. Would we stay there again? Probably not.

Nice large sites, which is unusual for a Jellystone. As always during the summer, plenty of unsupervised kids everywhere. A little farther from Sioux Falls than the others in the area, but much nicer over all. Staff very helpful and prompt in serving the visitor, when checking in.

The rate shown is the Passport America rate. Sites are gravel pads that can be soft for jacks, I would advise the use of boards under jacks to spread the weight, ours are 14"x14" and still sank some. Good access to Custer State Park and the Black Hills. The office staff was very helpful and friendly. No "grouches" here.

Not worth the price, maybe 1/2. Nothing here to stop for, other than to sleep. Close to the main tourist district as others have said, but so is the other RV Park, which looks better. Back to back hookups are the norm at this park. Would not and will not stay again.

Great suggestion for new item on buffet at casino would be Roast Canadian Goose, this could do wonders for the condition on the camp sites and streets. Overall it is a nice layout, has nice clean showers and the campsites are fairly level. The given rate includes 2 continental breakfasts at the casino hotel worth about $8. Office staff was very helpful and friendly.

Sites are long, but hookups are toward the back of the site if you are a DP towing, make sure you have plenty of sewer hose. Trees encroach on the front of the sites, we had one just off our entry door that the leaves rubbed every time the door was opened. Sites are very narrow if you have opposing slide outs. Just off I-65, with some of the turns to access the park being just a little tight.

Back again at Summit Lake. This park is open all year. The rate posted is the off season rate. The water wasn't on yet nor were the restrooms open. Water is available from the well house only per the office. Dump station was available for use. Gravel pads level and in good condition after a very wet winter and spring.

The posted rate at this park is the highest we've paid in any state park as full timers for the past 5 years. The surrounding states have much lower rates. This is the second time we've stayed at this park, we wonder if that last year we may have received an "off season" rate or $24.88 or if they have raised the daily rate by $10. We questioned the rate and were told that the rate goes up when they turn on the water. Strange since last year we had full hook ups also, the same week. The only thing I can say is it is $10 lower than the KOA in Clarkville. The restroom were exceptionally clean, however the grass was in bad need of mowing. The park had sign warning of a "tick alert and we saw several.

Very crowded park with many workers on site, it appeared. Our site was unlevel but freshly graveled w/o any mud. Reasonable price since our rate was for Passport America, we would not have stayed at published rate of $44.00 + tax, just not worth it. We would have kept rolling north on I-65 which is within 500 feet of the back of the campground. Staff was friendly and prompt with answers to questions.

Turn after the park entrance to registration parking area is a little tight for big rigs, towing. Some overhanging limbs on sites by office. Doesn't allow Passport America rate during early spring of early fall, rate paid is the Escapee RV Club rate. Some new big rig sites are completed, but are unusable due to soft ground, these sites will be very good when the ground "sets" up. Only campground close to the Natchez Trace from Jackson north in all of our directories.

Rate is the 3 night rate. Very well maintained facilities. Excellent friendly staff. Not a park for kids, few activities. Most sites are level; a few would require some blocking. No power or water problems. Free shuttles to restaurants and casino. Will stop again next time in the area.

Back in sites only, in the parking lot of old casino. Well laid out with acceptable width sites, up against the fence for a daycare facility. A shuttle to casino available. To register you must go to security at the entrance of the casino, which happened to be manned by a guard who was not exactly well trained in the English language. He had me fill out the registration form, then took me to the casino office where I paid for the site. Downside was that our EMS would not allow power to flow to motor home for more than a few minutes. Under 102 volts per EMS, so we boondocked for $15 for our night's stay since we had no need for water or sewer. I told 3 people about the power problem with any repair or even testing attempted. I felt a trip back to the security desk for a possible refund was a waste of time, since the fellow parked beside us said, "People don't park in those two sites very long."

We've stayed here 3 times now. Easy access from I-10, with large pull through gravel sites without any trees or shrubs. No problems at all getting satellite systems on the RV's roof to work. Joined the park's Thanksgiving dinner, had a great time. Electricity is extra @ about 10ยข a KWH. In four nights we used 148 KWH of power, with our two heat pumps, microwave/convection oven and electric water heater.

Second time we've stayed here. Yes it has a lot of workers on site, including one Texas State Trooper. There were several open sites when we arrived. Don't really care for the back to back hookups. Owners left for 1st day of deer season, so we used the drop box for check-in. Easy overnight stop on US 90 that's fine for us. Rate at $22 includes $2 for 50amp.

Excellent park with large gravel sites. The front row of sites are wide pull-throughs for travelers. The park is located about 10 miles west of Tucson. It is quite close to Old Tucson Studios and The Saguaro National Monument West and the Tucson Sonora Desert Museum (& zoo). Very nice owners on site. The stated rate was for Passport American members, 1/2 the regular nightly rate.

Pull through sites are not well defined, with hookups that are spread pretty far apart. In the full hookup section many of the sites with views of the river are taken up by old trashy RVs that appear to be long, long, long term residents. Nice park overall, with the clear blue water of the Colorado River running beside the park. Keep in mind within 1/2 mile, casinos have some parking lots that allow free over-night RV parking. If we chose to stay again I believe we might just opt for one of the sites without hookups that are on the river's edge.

Rate includes $4 per night additional required charge for cable and instant phone. We've stayed at Sam's in Tuncia, MS and have always liked the facility. Pay attention to the reviews is all I can say. Very tight back to back pull through sites, with the odd sewer hookups, however we had no sewer odor as described in other reviews. After looking at other parks within a mile of Sam's, the Roadrunner is probably nicer for less than 1/2 the rate. If we return to Vegas the Roadrunner will be our choice.

Price given reflects Passport America rate for a week. We were parked in back on gravel with back to back hookups, next to the trash dumpsters for the park. Tight sites, you can almost touch the next RV with your awning. Nice park, but we won't be back. By the way they park over-nighters, wouldn't care to stay again. Most activities in Phoenix are an hour away, better off staying in Mesa or Chandler. Could spend more for a campsite and not waste money on fuel for the dinghy.

Rate is for Passport America, good for 3 nights. Very nice facility associated with Cliff Castle Casino. Heated pool looked great, as did the exercise room. Overall a very well maintained campground. Staff is excellent and very helpful. Negatives: Many un-level sites, why do people that decide to develop a campground, hire concrete contractors who don't have a level or transit? Why does a developer plant so many desert plants that encroach on the parking pad to the point that one can't open hatches, without pushing them out of the way? Why does the park advertise Wi-Fi that doesn't reach the last 3 rows of sites? There are several permanent RVs on the property, some are cluttered.

Back row is all long term tenants, some quite junky. Interior roads need attention, very rough pavement with pot holes. Trees east of entrance obstruct vision of heavy traffic area. Power available at sites is only 20 Amp and 50 AMP. Office sells 30 to 50 adapters. The campsites have many sand burrs, so be prepared to brush out your pets. You must use a water pressure regulator, water pressure is 100 PSI.

This park is way over-priced. The only reason the rate is able to fly, is that it's location is just outside the National Park. They have 200 sites, but only 8 sites with 50 amp power, per the woman who checked us in. Not great for big rigs in the summer. Even though the gravel parking lot that serves as campground appears to be level I assure you the north end is not. We really don't care to lift the rear wheels of our motorhome off the ground and did not. We seldom use the showers in most parks, but after paying $43 for the un-level site, we felt $1.50 for 6 minutes of water for a shower was over the top. Many of the sites have back to back hookups, which is also a negative to us. If we ever choose return to the area, we'll reserve a 50 amp full hook up site in the National Park for several $ less.

Excellent park backed up against huge red rocks! A very impressive facility that also includes a "horse motel", museum, a balloon launch area and a rodeo venue. It might be a little dusty if the wind kicks up since it's all sand. The sites are a little odd in that the picnic tables appear to be on the same side as the hookups. Red Rock is a Gallup city park, that was acquired from the state, when it was announced 6 years ago that it was being closed due to budget cuts. So don't let the two groups of reviews confuse you. Even the campground receipts say "Red Rock State Park". Very easy to get to off old US 66, just about a mile east of the new Fire Rock Casino. Oh, BTW the casino has the tightest slots we've seen in New Mexico.

Campground is well laid out with large sites as long as they don't have to use them as "back to back" sites as set up. Interior roads were rough and muddy when we were there. $33 a night seems over-priced when several motels in town were offering "off-season" rates of $29 a night with "breakfast" included.

Very nice facility with long level full service sites. Grass pads without any tree cover. The fairgrounds are available for camping anytime not reserved, such as the State Fair or for a larger RV rally. You must drive through the center of town to get to the fairgrounds from the south, however traffic is not bad. Payment for your campsite can be made using the drop box at the campground entrance or at the fairgrounds office.

Very nice place to park, no family stuff here. Gravel lot with mostly pull-throughs. Could use a bit of weed killer on the sites. Very easy access from KS96 and US50 via Yoder Road from Hutchinson. The town of Yoder has very little to offer "Amish-wise" compared to other places we've been, the few businesses here are not "Amish" run. Be careful entering Yoder Road from the east or west at town: no stop signs and heavy fast traffic for a county road.

Located at Exit 135 on I-35 east of Emporia beside a trailer/RV dealer's lot. For a night, not bad, not a destination, but as way point, it's acceptable. 30AMP power only, back to back pull-throughs. Rough gravel access road, but easy to level on sites. Close to Interstate, but no worse than many other campgrounds noise-wise, for 3 to 4 times the price

Riverside Campgrounds is an older city campground that has been upgraded over the past seven years. We found the park hosts/managers to be very helpful and cordial. This campground is close to the historic sites of Springfield with easy access to 4 lane highways. This campground has 57 water & 30 amp electric sites, 10 water & 50 amp electric sites and 8 full hookup sites. A dump fee of $5.00 is charged. The rate for tents is $10 per site. The campground is open Mid-May to Mid-October.

$70 total for the 3-nights special rate. The second time we've stayed at this campground. It's well maintained and has large sites. There's no restrooms or showers, so you must be self contained. Easy access to all the shops, cheese plants and wineries in this Amish area of Ohio. Well worth the money spent.

A typical KOA: narrow roads and the sites are narrow and hard to level. There is full tree canopy, so our on-board satellite systems were useless. Plenty of cable TV channels and Wi-Fi worked well. Next time if in area, we will stay at Sugar Creek CG for $20 less per night.

Nicest campground and management in area. Only thing that kept from a higher score is the lack of open sites for satellite reception. Heavy tree cover and Verizon cellular doesn't work.

Best place to stay and visit largest flea market in Indiana. Back in sites are $27 per day, pull through sites are the rate listed at $33 per day. Dry camp, without hookups, $12 per day back in, $18 per day pull through. No Reservations accepted, 1st come 1st served. Open April 15th through November 15th. Direct access to flea market via foot bridge over drive, much closer location to Shipshewana attractions than the two other RV parks here. No bath house, toilets or dump station, your RV must be self contained. The 900+ vendor flea market is open Tuesday and Wednesday, May through October. Will definitely return again.

Mostly occupied by permanent residents. Sites are small and level. The power and water were very good. The rate listed is the Passport America rate which is good for one week.

Rate shown is the Golden Access Card rate. Excellent facilities on Bay Springs Lake. This park fills up most weekends, reservations are a must. This has been a yearly stop for us for the past 10 + years, due to family in the area. Would rate a 10 if it had sewer hookups. If you have Verizon Cellular service, it won't work. If you have satellite TV, it won't work without a portable dish. Local TV stations, not much. Good place to take a good book!

Great place to visit, our second time here. State agriculture museum with RV hookups in parking lot. Price includes admission to the park/museum. Check to see if they are open in advance; the state is talking about funding cut backs. If in the area look up one of the Carroll's Country Sausage & Meats. We stock up every trip through. The stuffed pork chops are great!

Only problem for us was too many trees. We have three on-board satellite systems, Sirius, Dish Network and Datastorm internet service, none worked.

Stayed for a month, our cost was $350. Draw back, parked by horse track, dusty and low in the front sites. The Fairgrounds are closed several times during the summer for rallies (examples: Monaco, Gulfstream, Newmar, Holiday Rambler, Heartland) and the Fair. Sites are not open to the public at those times. Call ahead is the main suggestion.

Reserved two sites, one for us in our motorhome and one for our daughter & grandson in a tent. Our site was $28. Her site was $20 for grass w/o hookups. Moved her to part of our site, 20 feet away. So our site was $48 or 3 nights. The sites assigned were extremely un-level located in the back. The jacks on our motorhome couldn't level without lifting the front wheels off the ground. Will book elsewhere if in the area again.

Very narrow interior roads with no shoulder and quick drop off of 1'plus except at entrance to each campsite. No cellular service and heavy tree cover which meant, no satellite TV and no satellite internet access with on board systems. Deer every where at night and during the day. Nice park to get away from it all, which we try not to do, but did this time to meet up with several friends.

All pull-through sites I believe. Some sites look to be level, ours wasn't. All sites have a small tree planted at left front, which could cause satellite interference in the future. Cable available on some sites. There were no paved sites and it was muddy during our visit. There appears to be many long term renters, possibly construction workers. One of the few RV parks located close to the Western KY Parkway for an over night stop. Accept Passport America, so our rate was $15.00, would not have stayed @ $30 for the night.

Nice clean, well kept Rv park, located on the Lucky Lady Casino property, Rate $20, less $2 for Good Sam and additional $2 for "Players Card". The RV park is located on the banks of the Mississippi River with plenty of river traffic. Nothing for kids to do, so I'd say this is an adult park.

Rate is Passport America with additional $3 night for 50 amp. Park is well maintained and the management is very cordial. This is a retirement park with an indoor pool and a very nice hall with planned activities. The down side is this park is older with very narrow roads and short sites. It does not lend it's self to overnight stays, but mostly long term. Parking was very difficult with our 40' unit. The road to the park is narrow and bumpy for about 6/10ths of a mile. There does seem to be some recent expansion happening, with utilities in ground but no streets yet.

Has 12-14 pull through 20/30/50 amp full hookup sites with full sun for travelers. Balance of sites are back in in a heavily wooded area. There are quite a few seasonal units in this campground. Interior roads and sites are gravel and were in need of grading during our stay. We would stay again since close to Indianapolis and lower in price than others in the area.

Way over rated by Woodalls. They advertise as "BIG RIG" friendly. Sure they have long pull throughs with water, electric and cable. But they made us run through a virtual obstacle course getting to our campsite. What this place needs is an owner who understands the operation of a chainsaw. Several trees are quite close to the main access drive to the "BIG RIG" area. This route, through the trees is the only access in and out of this part of the campground. This was also the 1st time in 30 years of RVing that we've had a person registering us actually call Good Sam to see if our discount card was valid. I guess the $3.60 discount was worth the call to them.

Many seasonal and permanent RVs on site. Very tight access to many sites. Grass & sand sites that wider than many parks. Of the 4 RV parking places close to Cedar Key, I hate to say it, but this is by far the best value for the dollar and nicest. Across the road is a proposed RV park with buyable lots, their advertisements state "Cedar Key 7 minutes away". Maybe at 75-80 MPH.
