Yes, it's brand new. The Wifi is working very well as I write, though at night it got a bit erratic. We have satellite so didn't try the cable. Wide open for Satellite reception. Very nice check in. Escorted to site. Nice level concrete pads with full hookups. Drought this year has made getting trees and grass started a challenge. We stopped to visit friends who are staying a month. They like it very much. If visiting Graceland and Elvis fan this is a good alternative to Tenn. parks. Excellent shopping/restaurant area just up the road. We would stay again if visiting area. I always forgive brand new parks any bugs they have to work out in the first year.

Gravel parking lot with working full hookups. If we didn't need to get closer to our destination I would have stayed at Ft. Chiswell. This is overpriced. I did manage to piggyback onto an internet signal from the hotel next door from which I'm writing this. Make sure you turn into the upper lot before the white house or you will find yourself going all the way to the back where there isn't room enough to turn around without dropping your towed.

Nicely improved campground that used to be a KOA. Owners very welcoming and service oriented. We stayed in site 36 as a previous review noted and we put out our awning with no problem as well as our slides. Driving through 32 to get to it allowed us to pull through rather than back in. No big deal. Those are obviously the overnight spots. Other sites are nicely backed into shady nooks. Wi-Fi was a little iffy but worked for the most part. Great for an overnight or longer should you wish. We'd stay again for sure.

Nice people in the office. Old park with grassy/dirt sites. Power was adequate for AC. There were thunderstorms the night we were there so the laundromat traffic didn't bother us, but someone was in there most of the evening, usually families. They weren't noisy or bothersome though. Lots of low spots in the road became puddles overnight and made for a slow exit the next morning. We would use it again for an overnight. Rate was as Passport America members

Excellent new park adjacent to I10 at exit 92 near Lafayette. New managers told us they insisted to the owner that they would run it only if he was prepared to make good improvements such as adding a pool. It's in the planning stage. WIFI is free and excellent, you do need the passcode from the office. In addition they just joined Passport America so for you overnighters the rate is excellent. Escort to site provided. Some highway noise for those who sleep lite. No shade which could be a challenge in the hot summer. Access roads are easy to navigate. We would stay again.

Good inexpensive overnight in a quiet setting. There were no events during our overnight. Wide grassy sites with elec/water hookups. Laundry room was poorly cleaned and the lights in the bathroom so dim it didn't look very nice either. Use the campsite but not the bathhouse. Riverside drive is a narrow two lane but well paved. Signage when you enter the park can be very confusing. It seems to say the office is closed and to check-in at the Activity Bld. The office is the house with the handicapped ramps as you approach the entrance. Easy check-in. Excellent paved hiker/bike trail running along the berm between Riverside Dr. and the Mississippi River.

Old tired park. Ok for overnight. Sites are tight, not very level. Navigation for big rigs would be difficult IMHO. We are 35' and it was ok but I could see where something 40+ would struggle. Propane very expensive in this area. $3 a gal. Park manager said they are handling many local folks from hurricanes so limited number of sites if you don't reserve.

I was trying to figure out if the last reviewer had stayed at the same park. Staff were very friendly and accommodating even though we arrived early for our reservation just after the Balloon Festival. There were numerous grassy areas where pets could be walked, we didn't experience any of the problems with burrs because it wasn't necessary to walk our pets outside the park. Everything was well maintained and clean. Lovely clubhouse, nice laundry, and nicely stocked souvenirs in store. We would return.

Where to begin. Police cars called for domestic problem. Rottweilers running loose and doing their affairs on our site. Dogs tied outside barking as you walk by the scary guy next door. Ok, actually everywhere on the back row. The upper part of the park upfront hides the back part of the park. In the back, all manner of ratty, old, falling apart trailers with debris around them, including trucks on blocks. Office very friendly. That's a plus. No we won't return here again unless someone else reviews it and says it's under tighter management.

Good overnight stop. Pick your site and then go in and register. Gravel sites. 6 are pull thru the rest back in. Some trees could use a trim. Truck noise from road behind you is pretty loud until about 10pm then it dropped off to nearly perfect overnight but picked up very early in the a.m. This hotel is no longer a Holiday Inn. Coupon for meal discount was nice. They want you to check out in the morning to get your receipt. We would use it for an inexpensive overnight again.

Still an economical place to stay on the way through Cheyenne. Half the property was sold to a garden center so the spaces left for camping are those in back of the dealership against the back fence. We stayed a week and got a discount so we paid about $17 when tax is added in. Not many folks use this so you have plenty of space around you.

Very nice park. Agree with previous review with the exception of train noise. Far as we can tell the trains are several miles away. We heard one very faintly during the afternoon we were there. Modern bathrooms are actually pit toilets, though clean and of the newer kind. There are two water spigots if you need water. One is behind site 5 and the other site 19. If you want the sun behind your rig in the afternoon choose the left side. The park is surrounded by a wildlife refuge and acres of corn. We were all by ourselves in blissful peace and quiet. If you've been on I80 all day this is the perfect spot to recuperate.

Would not recommend this park beyond someone with a tent or pop up. Even then it was not well maintained. Sites, if you can call them that are wherever you want to pull over along the road into very loose deep sand along the stream. No hookups available. There was a bad prairie fire a couple weeks ago (July '06 )that burned right up to one corner of the park but the vast majority of the park escaped the fire. In addition the access to the park is down a fairly steep short incline to a curve at the north end of town. It needs lots of attention. There are a number of private rv parks in town that range from very economical to resort. Go there unless you really like roughing it.

Modest park with full service. Nice young man checked us in. We paid Passport Am rate + $2 for using A/C + extra person. Surprised to find free WiFi working in park. Best amenity is location right on the Cowboy Trail hiking/biking trail. It's a Rails to Trails endeavor that will eventually cross the whole state along an abandoned train route. You could ride your bike right to Main St. if you liked. Sites are level gravel with grass in between. Small trees. Movie theatre right out front. Very basic and functional. We would use them again.

Excellent value. Sites are gravel, widely set and deep. Some are in open areas and some in nicely wooded area. The pool is the city pool and I'm not sure how you use it as we didn't, but it looked very nice. Sites not on the river are $17 for FHU. It was 100 degrees one day and the power grid was good. Cable was very good. If you stay 6 days you get one day free. Very nice setting on the Missouri River.

Very convenient to the center of Santa Fe. Recommend asking for site in the upper half, either center pull thrus or back-ins to the right. WIFI may work there, it doesn't at the lower end of the park. Also a number of really awful raggedy perm. trailers down in the lower left corner. Friday night was party night for them. A bike was stolen that nite as well. Not ours as they were locked. I wouldn't necessarily recommend the sites in the 90's, even the one recommended above. There is an open road out the back of the park allowing access to anyone. Overall a clean park and improvement/maintenance was in progress while there. I would use it to be close in.

Since discovering this park a couple years ago, it has continually improved. The back row used to be many raggedy permanent trailers. All gone. Landscaping is nicer each time we visit. Especially now when it's green and the trees are full. Lovely hosts. Very nice and economical spot on the way through El Paso. We will visit again whenever we are in El Paso. About 30 minutes to Las Cruces also.

Electric only Rv spaces in city park along the Winnebago River and across from city golf course. City water/dump station at entrance to park. Spaces all back in, level, gravel with grassy swales. Some sites shorter than others. Very pleasant stop when visiting Winnebago factory. Nicer than free spaces at Visitor center if you want to stay more than a day. Also directly across from Winnebago Surplus store if you need odd parts.

Modest city park behind small community zoo. Platte river runs along beside it with access to a nice paved hiking/biking trail. Very quiet, neat and clean. Park hosts used to live in town and take very good care of the park. Some long term trailers that have seen better days but mgmt. doesn't let them get messy. Seasonal park closed in winter. A little difficult to find. Take 71 south about 3 miles from 26. Look for zoo sign, turn right before zoo parking lot and follow paved road around to park. We would stay again. Really enjoyed talking to camphosts.

Modest campground and motel with superior hosts. Really nice folks (long time residents). Catch the Cowboy stew for dinner(5.95) or sourdough pancakes for breakfast (3.95), all you can eat. Delicious and the company is wonderful, feels like grandma's place. Campground is clean with gravel pull thru sites. Utilities worked good. First motel & campground you come too when leaving the park property. We were looking for another one and got them mixed up. Names are too similar but we didn't make a mistake. Trees are short and full making some turns difficult without scrapeing the sides. We did all right with a 35'. Very quiet and peaceful.

OK for overnight. We paid Passport America rate + tax = (13.50). Bills itself as South Dakota's best. That's a bit of a stretch. It's nice enough, sites were level, gravel and very long pull-throughs. Train tracks run behind but quietly with no whistle. Farther from Interstate than RR so quieter. Only one train went by. Gravel road to the office and then to the campsites has some erosion dips from rainstorms. Hasn't been leveled for awhile it appears. So watch the bump. Behind Days Inn Motel. Didn't use waterpark, they wanted $5 for a wristband.

We paid Passport America rate of $12 for w/e site. Neat as a pin with friendly hosts. Driveway gate may be a little tight for really big rigs, but we turned in just fine. Newly asphalted drive in. Appears to have been a KOA but is in much better condition now. Everything looks refurbished and clean. Nice hostess. Sites are gravel and could use leveling, most have a slight hump in the middle from years of use. Ours was a bit on the lumpy side, but the jacks found their mark. Would definitely use again.

Bare bones overnight spot off I-64, exit 28, for half what the other RV resort in town charges. If you just need to sleep and don't want a water park, this is the place. Upper lot has full hookups for $20, lower grassy field has w/e for $16 and the bathhouse. Train tracks behind but no whistle blowing so it was only one rumble we heard at night. Pick your spot and someone will come by for the fee. Going west on SR-60 it's on the right, going east, on the left and behind Jim's car wash. Black top road was a little on the narrow side, but ok.

Perfect overnight stop. Unlike all the cheesy glitz of Pedroland outside, the campground is a very nice wooded oasis. Long pull-throughs made navigation a cinch. Don't know what the first reviewer's problems were. It was clean and the landscaping was well maintained. Bath houses and laundry were older but clean and in good maintenance. Very nice grassy separation between sites. The only catch is that there is no sign on the road telling you where to turn into the campground. The campground office is behind the gas station and arcade on the left. I happened to see the word CAMPGROUND painted on a building behind the storefronts and that's how I got where I was going. After that it was easy. Don't remember hearing any road noise at all.

Stayed at Passport Am. rate for a week. Our favorite stopover in Benson. Love the awesome view of the valley and the Dragoon Mtns' to the east. All facilities are maintained in excellent condition by dedicated staff of workampers. Nice big laundry room. $1.00/.75 wash/dry. And the dryers DRY. Only downside, at certain times of the year the wind comes blowing through like a freight train often. Don't leave the awning out.

Nice enough park. Friendly office help. Gravel sites, some better situated than others. Many sites are tandem with two rigs backed up to each other. In the front area where we stayed one night, your door opens directly to the other persons door about 12' away with a picnic table between. Since our neighbors dog was a barker, everytime we exited with our dog the barking started. The lower area was somewhat better designed. Utilities worked very well. Bigger rigs might find trees a bit challenging in some spots. Ok for overnight or short term visit to the area.
