The rate reflects a monthly fee. The woman in the office suggested a monthly rate (even though we planned to stay 3 weeks) because the weekly rate would have been much more. This was a great service. However, it went south from there. We ended up switching sites 4 times -- we couldn't get good sat service in the 1st site, the 2nd site wasn't level, and the other two sites had bad electric pedestals: my Surge Guard 44270 indicated an Open Ground. Just to confirm this, I tried connecting our RV directly to the pedestal, but received the same error. When I informed the woman in the office, she said that there was nothing wrong with the park's electrical service because it had been checked by local electricians. I asked if we could just stay the night because it was about 4 pm now, but she said no. At this point I was so angry that my wife had to go in and get our money back.

The owners seem to be investing heavily in renovations and the price is right at this campground. That said, they could also spend some more on landscaping as the campground is either gravel or asphalt. Plus, there is not really a dog park here as it's a walkway around a stinky water retention pond. However, there is a very good off leash county dog park less than a mile away. Campground Wi-Fi was spotty, but 4G when available and good Verizon 4G LTE is also available.

A beautiful desert campground. We camped in the B Loop and had water plus 50 amp electrical service. The campsites are well spaced, but for the most part there is little shade to be had. There are a number of walking trails, and the park is located very close to city services (grocery stores, restaurants, etc). Though the water pressure in the showers was low, the building itself was very clean, bright, and covered with ceramic tile. Verizon 4G LTE service was good.

Very scenic park. Our site in the Cinnamon Teal Loop overlooked the lakes and steep bluffs. We originally were going to stay in Redhead loop site #5, but site was not level enough for our CLass A. There is no park Wi-Fi, but Verizon 4G LTE was very strong. Using the shower in the combo bathroom/shower stalls tended to get the entire floor wet, but facilities were clean. We left a day early because fall nights got very cold (20s) as the park is at 6300 feet. The nearby Safeway store in Show Low is a great grocery store with a surprising wine selection.

The rate was based on 11 days during the Balloon Fest. A great park. I think the staff makes this campground special as they tried to answer every question and assist us in any way. The sites are paved and level. We were in site #141 on the end of a row so there was extra space for our toad. There is a small dog park and the camp WiFi was 3G. This campground is in a great location as it's not too far out of town and located right on Central Avenue which you can take for a great slow tour of Albuquerque. Also, for Balloon Fest the park is very near one of the park and ride areas.

This is a funky campground south of Santa Fe. It's convenient because it's close to the city, and the staff is helpful and friendly. However, $41/night is too expensive for what it offers. The campground roads are narrow and turns can be challenging. There is a dog area for small dogs, but there is also a fairly long trail that can be used for a dog walk (or a regular walk). The laundry is good, but one of the washers and one of the dryers I tried using didn't operate. We couldn't connect to the campground Wi-Fi, but Verizon 4G service was very good.

The fee reflects $29/night (full hookups) + $8/day park pass. There are only 4 full hookup sites 1, 3, 6, and 63. However, the site we reserved (#3) was not level enough for our Class A. We had to try out 2 more sites before we found one level enough. Otherwise, the park was spectacular. Fisherman's peak in one direction and the Rockies in another. The bathroom, shower, and laundry building was new and very clean. Verizon 4G LTE service was very good.

The $38/night was a weekly rate. While the campground management appeared to be busy adding additional camping sites, there are things they could have done better. For example, 2 of the 4 dryers were broken, there were large washouts from previous rains, the campground office hours during this time of year were completely random, WiFi coverage was spotty at best, and they watered the plants early every morning with a noisy tractor.

Wow! One of the best campgrounds (state, federal, and private) I've been to. This is a 50A full hookup park with Cheyenne Mountain above you and Colorado Springs below. Stellar views. There are plenty of hiking trails and access to modern conveniences in nearby Colorado Springs. However, once in a while the quiet would be broken by artillery practice at nearby Fort Carson. The nightly rate of $45 =$29/night + Colorado day pass. So if you're planning on camping in a lot of state parks in pays to buy a annual pass. We had good Verizon 4G LTE service.

After just coming from Lovewell State Park for $32 a night with full hookups, Prairie Dog State Park was a let down. Nearby Norton was very sparse in terms of services. However, Verizon 4G was very good.

What a find! Though the lake was 10 feet below level, it was beautiful. Great Blue Herons and Pelicans were all over the lake. The sites to get are in Willow South Utility Campground. These are pull through with full hookups and 50A electric. We camped in site #3, but sites 4, 5, and 6 have superb lake views. Verizon phone and data were marginal, but we could get 4G LTE in the morning and night.

Right off Hwy 36 at the west end of Seneca. When we camped here, it was an "absentee landlord" kind of park -- that is, no one was here to sign us in or monitor the park. We put money in an envelope and signed ourselves in. No big deal until someone pulled into the campground and slept in his car all night. Though there seemed to be on on-site caretaker, he didn't do anything. On a positive note, they had the best laundry we've seen.

A small campground surrounded by a cornfield and a canal. We camped here for a week before and during the Labor Day weekend. There are several seasonal campers, but mostly weekenders. Good laundry and bathrooms. The campground offers Tengo WiFi, but we were unable to connect. However, the Verizon 4G data signal was strong so we could use our own hotspot. Had a concern with the water supply at first: our water was noticeably cloudy and turned our water filter orange. I notified the campground and they flushed their water filters.

If this is your destination stop for racing around the Silver Creek sand dunes (which we did and it was great), then this is your kind of campground. If not, avoid it as some of the dune buggy folks can be jerks. At any rate, avoid the weekends when people pour into the campground. The camp staff was very responsive and professional. Campground WI-Fi was barely 3G at times, but our Verizon 4G modem was very good. Verizon phone coverage was also ok.

One of the best parks we've visited. Entire park is surrounded by woodlands. Sites are landscaped and very private with driveways of stamped concrete. Park Internet service was the best we've ever had and local Verizon phone and data (4G) was also very good. Indigo Bluffs is a stone's throw away from Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes and the entire area has a lot to offer -- reminded us of Wisconsin's Door County peninsula.

We stayed in site #254 in the Upper Campground. There was plenty of room and a couple of nice walking paths. Though the freeway (I-75) was a few hundred feet away, we could hardly hear it. Verizon cell was good and Verizon LTE was also good. A well-cared for park.

A great campground by a great town (Gran Marais) by a great lake (Superior). This place was a find. Though Woodland Park is a first-come-first-served campground, we were able to pick a site (of several available ones) during the height of summer. The grass campsites are laid out with adequate room between each and many sites have electric, water, and cable -- though no sewer hookups. There are a couple of small grocery stores in Grand Marais plus a few restaurants. Regardless, it's a great place to walk around. Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore is within walking distance and boats tours of the Pictured Rocks are an hour away in Munising.

We stayed here a week. The park's full hookups were a welcome relief to the state and county parks we had been staying. It's a well-managed park in Ishpeming, MI. This park is near grocery stores, a movie theater, and an RV dealership and store -- very handy. Verizon cell was good and data was 4G.

Agree with former reviews that camp host is superb. Not only does he keep the park clean and maintained, but he also helped us out of a mess. Our Class A got stuck in soft sand and he supplied wood planks and muscle to help get us out. But therein lies a problem: Class As (or any heavy RV) should NOT use any of the "L" (Lakefront) sites (1 through 5). Most of the "L" sites are on beach sand with a light topping of grass. When we tried getting into site L4, our front and rear tires started sinking. This has also happened to at least one other Class A. Besides that: this park is a gem. The sandy beach is within walking distance and is very shallow for about 100 yards, so it's great for wading or dog swimming. Verizon phone and 4G LTE data were very good. Escanaba is just 20 minutes up the road for groceries, Wal-Mart, etc.

JW Wells is a former CCC camp. We camped in site #4, a 30A site on Lake Michigan. Though the campground was full, the weekend we stayed, it was hard to tell. It was very quiet. There are modern shower facilities and a great central play area for kids. Plus a beach is within walking distance. However, there is no more camp WiFi and our Verizon cell and data were marginal.

We stayed at one of the Lake Ottawa campsites for 2 weeks. Very good park as they've just upgraded many sites to 50A -- important in the Summer heat. As a previous reviewer said, MANY CHIPMUNKS! Verizon phone and 4G service was good.

It's a great family (with kids) campground. A lot of things to do. But, if you want some privacy, this isn't the place. Your campsite is everyone's campsite -- both adults and kids walking all over the place. A couple of days of this is fine, but no more. Parked on site #60 which I think had an issue with the 50 amp service as there was some difference in voltage between the two electrical legs. Verizon 4G service was very good.

What a difference a year makes. This park (along with other WI state parks) had some vintage and not-so-reliable electric posts. However, a recent state initiative has resulted in 50 amp upgrades to several state parks, including Peninsula SP. We camped in Weborg Campground which typically requires reservations a year in advance. Very private campground that is right on the lake. Verizon 4G service is good. Nearby Fish Creek has many shops and good restaurants. In fact, most of Door County itself is a destination.

A nice, family-oriented campground on the shore of Green Bay. Note, however, that there is a marsh between the campground and the lake, so there's no beach. But this area is great for bird watching. Verizon was 4G with an antenna and amplifier, but without this speeds tended to be lower.

This was our first visit to Lake Wissota State Park. We've camped in many of Wisconsin's state parks and this one is very similar to the others we've seen. Restrooms and showers were vintage, but the locale was superb. Almost every site is private and surrounded by greenery. There is a walking trail to the beach and a large beach area and beach house. A number of sites have been upgraded to 50A service. Also, the park is close to Chippewa Falls for groceries and dining.

Previous reviewers listed Sewer hookups, but they appear to be only available for the seasonal sites: which account for about 1/2 the campground. This is a nice, average campground with a staff that seems to care about the campground. Camp WiFi was very good 4G. Also, my Verizon phones and data card worked very well. 4G speeds as well. The campground is conveniently located close to Chippewa Falls for groceries and dining.

We camped here for a month so the rate shown is the monthly. First, this is a campground populated almost entirely by seasonal campers. So most sites have a tow behind or 5th wheel parked on it. There are only a handful of free sites. Weekdays there are virtually no seasonals around. They arrive on the weekend, mow their site grass, put in decks or sheds, and have a good time. Nice folks but they all locals, so full timers like us are the odd man out. Regardless, Pepin and the surrounding towns are great. Lots to do and great food. Check out the Harbor View Cafe. Super. Verizon 3G (and sometimes 4G) service good but spotty. Never was able to connect with the campground WiFi.

This is a 50/50 campground -- one half for the seasonal campers, the other half for those of us who are just passing through. The seasonals have access to the better sites along the Wisconsin River while the other sites are much closer to the freeway. However, this campground is fine as a stopover. WiFi was nonexistent. Verizon 4G LTE was excellent.

We've been coming to this campground for several years, and it has always been a treat. There are a variety of sites, most very secluded and private. We normally try to stay at one of the sites in the outer loop that is close to Ottawa Lake. Though the lake is small, it has a clean, sandy beach and dogs are allowed to swim at one end of the lake. Several sites are actually on the lake. However, these sites are all on a steep embankment and none of them has electricity. The park's electric sites are currently a mix of 30A and 50A. There are some fine hiking trails nearby, the Scuppernong trail system is the closest.

Camped at site #109. Great site, but 30 amp power kept tripping so we were forced to run extension cords into our RV using the two, 20 amp outlets. The park scenery is great, but the electrical problems (which I've written about before) continue. There's hope. High Cliff may get all its electric sites upgraded to 50 amp next year if there's enough money in the state budget. Fingers crossed.

While this campground does have a view of Lake Michigan, it's across a 4-lane highway that's pretty busy most of the time. If you camp in one of the pull-through sites (which have the best view), there is VERY little space between sites. I would never consider starting a campfire as I'd be afraid of setting fire to the rig next to me. Also, people park in FRONT of the pull through sites, which means you may end up knocking on camper doors asking people to move their toads so you can get out. On the plus side, their WiFi was great! Very strong signal strength. The minuses of Village Inn would be ok if they charged $30 or $35 a night: but Village Inn charges $49 per night. No weekly or monthly rates.

We camped in Weborg site #104: one of the best sites in the park as it has a direct view and access to Lake Michigan. There are only a handful of sites in Weborg which makes it very secluded and private for a state park. Plus, you're in walking distance of Fish Creek which has great shops and restaurants. We could not have asked for a better location. However, like many older Wisconsin state parks, the electric hookups can operate poorly, especially in bad weather: like we had during our stay at Weborg. After a rain storm we were unable to get an air conditioner running off our electric pedestal. And in 90 degree humid weather a great location was not enough to keep us here and we left early: after reserving the site a year in advance.

We camped here the first week this new state campground opened so keep that in mind as you read this. While this new state campground certainly has potential, it's currently unfinished. The dump station wasn't operable and you had to haul your trash out. In addition, the 3-mile road into the campground is gravel that creates an incredible amount of dust and kicks up stones onto any tow vehicle. However, I'm told that over the next year all these things will be fixed + an additional 50 campsites are being added. This state campground is located near some great fishing and boating areas and the local is beautiful. Just keep in mind that it's a diamond in the rough.

We camped at site #103 in the Weborg loop of Peninsula State Park.. This is a 30 amp electric only site. We've camped here before in a smaller (35') Class A, but it was difficult maneuvering our 41-footer. We clipped several bushes and trees trying to get in and out of our site. Also, site #103 is not very level. We wanted to pull into the site with the front of out RV facing the lake, but could not do it as we would have been too out of level. So we ended up backing in. However, this loop of Peninsula SP is well worth it. The views are breathtaking. This park has superb hiking and biking trails. In addition Fish Creek is a short drive (or bike ride) away and has an abundance of restaurants and stores.

We stayed over a weekend in our 41-foot Class A in site #19, a full hookup pull-through site. Staff was friendly and courteous. There are wooded and open-area sites. Site #19 was open which we asked for because we wanted a clear view of the sky for our sat dish. The site was a bit pricey, but this is Door County, Wisconsin, which is more upscale tourist territory.

We camped (or tried to) in site #103. However, the 30A GFCI breaker kept tripping and we were given an alternate site. I was able to talk with a park tech who tried to fix the bad breaker (to no avail). He said that the electric hookups were showing their age as they were installed in the 1980's. This has happened to us in another electric site at this park. Besides that, the park is located on a limestone bluff overlooking Lake Winnebago. There are plenty of bike and hiking trails.

We stayed in site 005 which had 30A electric in our 41-foot Class A for a week. We were able to walk down to the Bad River, a shallow, wide stream, from the back of site 005. But it was a good 1/2-mile through the woods. Nevertheless, on one walk to the river, I saw a doe and her fawn wading in the river. Though the shower building was about a 1/2-mile from our site, there were several showers and stalls and was kept very clean. However, the high point of this park are the falls along the Bad River. One word: spectacular!

First, I did NOT camp at this campground. I live nearby and made a short visit to see if I wanted to camp there. So the only thing I can speak of is access to this park. Access is not good for a large RV. The road into the campground is steep, fairly narrow, and eroded to the point that there are large ruts. I would be afraid of bottoming out. However, to be fair, I saw one Class A that had successfully made the trip into the campsite.
