The $19/nightly rate was actually a $128/week Escapees rate. We reserved a site for a week prior to leaving MO. We ended up staying three weeks. Staff was friendly, sites are very large, good $3.50/person breakfast at clubhouse on Saturday mornings. The campground is approximately 20 minutes off I-10, not close enough to the Interstate for an overnight stay. Roads to campground, and in campground are good. We only saw two, single, shower/toilet units, but we didn't search for them since we used the facilities in our motorhome. The pool was not open, the water was not warm enough to use it, during our stay. TengoInternet is available for a fee. The signal was not great at our site. We tethered our laptops to our phones, which worked fine. Lack of a heated pool/spa, poor campground Internet and lack of cable TV access were the reasons I did not give the campground a 10. For the price it is a fantastic deal and we will stay there again if we are in the area.

Pleasant lady took reservation, checked me in and led me to my site. Roads were fine for my 40' motorhome pulling a toad. I was traveling through the area and needed a place for an overnight stop. I would stay there again if I am in the area.

We stayed two nights. I have lost my receipt so I guessed at our nightly rate, which included a $2/night charge for cable TV and all taxes. We stayed two nights and considered staying longer because is was such a nice place. The pool was not open yet, but was nearly ready. It looked very inviting but they were still adjusting the chemicals. All the sites in our area were back-in sites but the campground is layer out in a circular pattern. If there was no one in the site outboard of the circle you were in you could pull through. There was plenty of room to back our 40' motorhome onto the site. The sites are all grass and ours was slightly soft. We used blocks under our leveling jacks and still compressed the sod more than we would have liked. The campground is convenient to the Interstate. It is close enough that you do hear some noise from the Interstate, but nothing that is objectionable. There are two steakhouses and a Subway within easy walking distance. We ate at the Countryside Inn Steakhouse, the one that is closest to the campground. My prime rib was excellent! Wife's broiled walleye was also very good. Sadly there are no restaurants open for breakfast.

$28.14 rate was with Escapees discount and included sales tax. Gravel pads are level for parking, but drop off at edge of RV. Their advertising says that they have cable TV and a pool. They have some type of cable, but we could not find network channels. They charge $5/person to use the pool. OK for the $28/night but no great deal since they gouged you to use the pool and the cable was marginal, at best. Also, no Wi-Fi. Convenient to the Interstate as long as you don't miss the 2nd turn, and even if you do you can enter the campground from the rear. OK for a nights stay if you want to see the Corn Palace.

Great value. Not fancy. Parking is along the edge of roads in the camping area. Restrooms were clean. Staff was friendly. No showers. No water hook-ups. There is a dump station that is convenient. There was plenty of room for our 40' motorhome and our tow vehicle. We stayed two nights.

The campground was OK but their advertising honesty leaves a lot to be desired. The heated pool and spa was still closed when we left, after the Memorial Day weekend. If the heated pool/sp is seasonal their ads should so state. They charge $3/night extra if you want cable. The WiFi is almost non-existent. You can sometimes make a connection and twice during our 4 days there the connection speeds were acceptable. The reminder of the time I connected using my phone. We paid $39.17 per night, including tax, with Goods Sam discount but without the $3/day fee for cable. We camped in a 40' class A. If the place was full it would be very tight getting in and out of the area where we were parked. On the positive. There was a nice grassy strip adjacent to the parking area and a shelter over the picnic table. If traveling with friends you could pull into adjacent sites from opposite ends and share the grassy area and shelter. Had their advertising stated that the heated pool/spa was seasonal and had it noted that they charged extra for cable, I would have rated them a 7 or 8. If the WiFi had worked I would have rated them at least an 8.

We stayed two nights. Would have stayed another night if weather had not turned bad (snowing as we hooked up). Owner is very friendly and helpful. Very easy in and out pull-throughs for 40' rig towing car. Paperback book exchange. Small restaurant within easy walking distance; breakfast was good there. They don't take credit cards but did take a personal check. No club discounts. Would certainly stay here again if we were in the area. (Needed a heated pool for a 10)

Easy access from the highways. Park was built in the 50's and spaces are TIGHT. Our 40' Class A fit in one spot but our lawn chairs and awnings had to be in the adjacent spot. The park was not full and this was not a problem. Our site required that we put one set of duals on 1" blocks so that we didn't lift the tires off the ground while levelling. Parking areas are asphalt but there are some trees. Attendant had to do some trimming before we could put out our slides and I climbed onto the roof and did some more trimming to keep branches from rubbing on the roof. No major branches that were going to damage anything. Attendant was friendly. There appear to be a lot of permanent guests. Washers and dryers worked great and laundry area was clean. We stayed two nights. The park was a good value for our needs. We would stay there again, if there was room to use two spots. We were in what they probably called a pull-thru but it was easier to back into the spot.

I booked a reservation online. I asked for a $28/night, 80x35 "premium" back-in site. Other listed alternates were $28/night, 65x22 "deluxe" pull-through sites, $32/night 80x35 "premium" pull-throughs and $40/night 80x40 "super premium" pull-throughs. The web site states that online reservations receive a 10% discount on the first night's stay. I received a call while on the road and was asked if I wanted to "guarantee" my first night. I said yes and was told the cost was $41. I was otherwise occupied and didn't give it much thought and gave them my credit card number. When I checked in I said I wanted to stay two nights (dumb, tired and not thinking things through) and I paid another $41 for a second night. Later, after giving it some thought, I went to the office and asked why I was charged $37/night for a site that was supposed to cost $28/night. I was told that we got one of the more expensive sites because they thought the cheaper sites would be to noisy for us. There was also something about not being able to fit on one of the less expensive sites. They advertise free Wi-Fi. There is Wi-Fi, you just can't get on it. I did happen to get on it once, but as I understand that was nothing but luck. They have a heated indoor pool, but it is only open during office hours. We would NOT stay here ever again.

Park was clean. Turn around office was tight with 40' motorhome. Wi-Fi signal was so weak we couldn't connect. Our spot was near the entrance. Back-in space was large and nice. Our big knock was price. They advertise a 50% discount for Escapees. When I checked in I was told the normal rates are $70 for a pull through and $60 for a back-in, FAR too high. We paid $30/night for back-in. The person who is supposed to take care of propane had his "do-not-disturb" sign out at 9:30 even though he is supposed to be available after 9:00. Not convenient from 101. We stayed 3 nights. We would not stay there again.
