What a pleasant surprise out in the country! An easy park to navigate once you get there, but better directional signage on the way in would be nice. Sites are well groomed gravel and quite large. Ours was pitched a little too much to the front, but still got leveled OK. Other sites appeared to be more level. Just an overnight stop, but the restaurant looked inviting - maybe next time! Very pleasant front desk person.

Typical of RV parks in this part of the country, it was basically a gravel lot with pea stone to help keep the dust down. Easy in/out access. Sites were level, and hookups were fine. Nice enclosed dog runs, one for big guys, and one for the little critters. Some train noise in the distance, but we didn't find it bothersome. Worked well as an overnight stop for us.

Passport America price for first two nights. Park is open and flat, with ultra-long pull-through sites. Only drawback for us is the DUST! The roads give up a storm cloud of talcum-powder dust no matter how slow you go. Location out in the Iowa farm country is really nice, and we plan to explore the Amana colonies for a few days.

Not many places to stop for the night on I80, so this was a pleasant surprise! Easy access, but very little highway noise. Shady sites if you want, or open sites for rooftop satellite. Very accomodating owner. Well worth the price.

Really the only choice in this area. Paved roads and sites, a little tight for 40 footer towing, but certainly doable. We had a 30 and full hookup site, voltage good, rooftop satellite OK. Park very busy - not many sites available. It's always a plus when park owners care about the overall appearance of their park, but it never fails to amaze me when they care more about their grass than they do the customer's RV! Sprinklers on every night (California drought?) and not adjusted very well so count on getting your RV sprayed!

We stayed here 15 years ago and it was worn and tired then - it's about the same now except that there seemed to be a lot of permanent dwellers here now. Too bad, because it's a great location right on the harbor. Sites are "old style" (very close together - maybe 20 feet between pedestals) and 30a. Water bibs are in some cases right on the ground - not exactly sanitary (bring the bleach spray bottle!) Was told by the Office lady that the park will be closed in Oct 2014 for several months while they renovate. I hope they do a complete job of it (utilities, etc) because it is past due.

Small park right in town (across the street from an impressive grocery/clothing/hardware store). We had a level grass pull-in site where we faced some tall shrubs that blocked the view of a line of old single-wides (shared the entry street with the park). No cable, but no problem getting satellite. Lots of RVs coming and going - probably would be wise to get a reservation during summer season. We'd stop here again for a few days.

Chose this park based on favorable tone of previous reviews. Think they must have been written by employees! Overall, the park needs a major upgrade: sites are rough grass/dirt and the first site they put us on had no 50 amp hookup. Turns out the park is a membership operation where the owners are not present. Long walk to the beach. Sorry to say, but the quality did not come close to the price. We would look elsewhere if returning to this area.

Located in an industrial area, the ride in makes you wonder, but once in the park it's quite nice. Substantial landscaping at the sites (in fact, overtaking some of the sites), paved roads, borders a river with direct access to an off-leash paved public walking path. Many long term campers and early work trucks. Not the friendliest front office reception, but efficient. Park is pretty full - reservations needed. We're passing time here waiting to join a caravan into Calgary Stampede - probably won't have a need to come back.

As noted in other reviews, the park is neat and clean, paved roads, more space between most sites than we've come to expect nowadays, and reasonable rate. Although trees are nice, they become a negative when the owners don't trim them up to clear today's RV's. This park needs a serious trimming! Maneuvering through the park and into the site is doable, but you will brush some of the tree limbs. Cable TV is snowy, and rooftop satellite is not possible given the heavy tree growth. Doubt that I'd stay here again.

A beautiful RV park right in W Yellowstone. Staff was extremely helpful in finding us a site on short notice. A deluxe park with paved roads, easy access, and much nicer than some of the older dirt parks in the area. If you plan to stay here during the busy Summer season, call ahead for reservations. You won't be disappointed!

Convenient overnight park near an exit but not overly noisy. New owner just took over operation and appears to be doing some renovating. Young lady in the office was very pleasant and efficient, older escort person missed the customer service training. It's an older campground, and the sites are quite close. Several sites had trees that needed trimming and we witnessed RVs scraping past them. Water pressure was pretty bad at times, and OK at other times. Walk through the back of the park to the adjacent Butte Visitors Center (of course, anyone out there can walk right into the campground as well). Maybe the new owner will erect a security fence? Some older campers look like they've been there for years. But all things considered it served our purpose for an overnight stop, but I'd hope the new owner will do some renovating and updating.

We found this KOA had lots of amenities and features for a family vacation destination, but felt that the site price was excessive since they also charge for many of the amenities if you choose to use them. For $75 we expect a seriously deluxe campsite, and this park doesn't come close. Also, if you need Verizon access, don't plan on it - this park is 6+ miles west of W Yellowstone - we were barely able to make phone calls, and you can forget about any data transfer! On the plus side, there was no hesitation when we asked for a refund for unused days (we moved into town to a nicer park and less $$). There are several really nice choices in town, but this time of year you need to plan ahead.

If you don't want your neighbor 3' away, and you care about your RV, don't stay here! Sites are back-to-back and very tight. Management seems to be more interested in the condition of their "grass" than in the comfort of their guests. They have in-ground sprinklers that saturate the ground by your RV and spray mineral-laden water on the sides of your vehicles. The sites are lower than the grass, so you end up with a pond at your front door! Electric power was not balanced (108v and 116v). Cable TV was very snowy - clerk blamed it on our cable. Cleanliness of the grounds was lacking. Office staff seems disinterested. And don't expect them to answer their telephone! Do yourself a real favor and stay somewhere else!

The campground served our purpose with a 40 footer and was reasonably priced. Site space was adequate, and we found back-in sites 52-58 & 60-67 to be easy to level on. Some of the pull-thru sites had quite a slope to them. Antelope Canyon Tour will pick you up at the campground. Tour price seemed reasonable - $74 for 2 - but the several different tour companies really pack them in and rush you through. Don't expect to spend time absorbing nature's beauty! Had a nice dinner at Bonker's in downtown Page.

Asked for and received site 104 which was suggested by a previous reviewer. Now that we're here I can't for the life of me understand why anyone would think this is one of the best sites! It shares an exit with site 105, and their fire pit is about 4 feet from our RV! There appears to be many nice sites for 40 footers and I see folks driving around looking at sites so I assume there are many available. Shame on me for not checking more thoroughly! Just goes to show - don't believe everything you read in a review! Last time we were at Bryce (10+ years ago) we stayed in one of the campgrounds in the park (no hookups). Thought we'd try a commercial park this time. Expensive choice! Sites are level gravel, good electric and good water pressure. Look around before you ask for a particular site!!

WOW! A Good Sam Park?? Once again the Good Sam rating is way off the mark! Nobody here when we arrived about 4pm. Office closed. Pool closed and full of green water. Unkempt grounds. A few long term trailers and 5th wheels here, and a few of us duped over nighters. They are the only choice for miles around so you hook up or keep driving! Our 50a electric was steady at 120v, the water was good, and the rough gravel site was close to level, so it works for an overnight.

About 5 miles west of Amarillo, this park is fairly new, all paved roads and concrete sites/patios. Quite busy, many long-term campers, sites well kept, and no highway noise. There's a pool and a hot tub at the Rec center. Use the frontage road to visit the "Cadillac Ranch" just down the street (it is unique!). We didn't find the cattle odor objectionable, but then we like farms and animals - didn't seem overbearing though. The only thing that did bother us was the constant wind during the day, and the campground can't be faulted for that! After touring the area and seeing the other campgrounds around Amarillo, we'd definitely stay here again.

Stayed in one of their new pullthru sites - 100 feet long and lots of space between sites! Leveling wasn't an issue. Brand new owners here just took over and staff says they plan to continue the upgrades of previous owners. Some sites are shady, ours was open so we could get rooftop satellite. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, escort to your site, and always out and about working or maintaining the grounds. Shopping nearby, and if you haven't been to Mt Dora you're in for a real treat: beautiful town with unusual shops and festivals. We'll definitely stay here when in the area!

A campground built on an old airport runway? All pull-through, level, full hook-up sites, close to your neighbor but not too close. Laundromat that's nicer than most campgrounds, RV parts store, and very friendly staff. Water is turned off during the winter months, but they have two locations where you can fill your tank. If you own a Tiffin motorhome, this is the place to go for factory service. If you don't own one, come here anyway and go through the factory tour. It will give you a hands-on up close view of motorhome construction from beginning to completion! Definitely worth the trip. And to top that off, get directions to their paint facility if you want to see how they put all those fancy designs on those coaches. All the Tiffin people are friendly and helpful, so feel free to ask questions. And, yes, the campground really is an old runway, but if you want to talk to Tiffin owners, what better place to go?!

I'm amazed at how many previous reviews consider this park to be beautiful! I see a well worn park with narrow concrete pads surrounded by sand, and completely covered with oak trees that are loaded with Spanish moss! Sorry, but it just doesn't look like anything remarkable to me. Lots of I-75 noise and limited number of cable channels to boot! I'll try something else next time I'm in the area.

A snowbird park with sites available for over-night. Excellent reception at check in, reasonable rate for FHU, escorted to grassy pull thru. Sites in this area are back-to-back so you could have a very close neighbor if they were extremely busy, but our escort said they wouldn't be putting anyone next to us on either side tonight (thoughtful because we've been in campgrounds where they line you up even when they aren't busy!). One consideration for motorhomes: use your leveling blocks on the grass because you will sink in (it's hard enough to drive on, but your jacks will go down!) We put this one on our list for future reference.

This is an old and tired KOA where the owners are not paying attention to the basics. Yes, the staff is friendly and the sites are level, but that's about it. Navigating the park is a challenge with the dirt/muddy roads, lack of directional signage, overhanging trees (the escort to your site is not just nice, it's necessary!) Trash isn't picked up: watch out for uncleaned fire pits from previous guests, wires protruding from the ground here and there, and owners (friendly) dog wandering around the park while you have yours on a leash! For the price, I expect better! Sorry, but won't be back.

We've stayed here before, and it continues to be the best in the area. Not much going on in Bay St Louis even today thanks to Katrina, but the casino is handy, and New Orleans is less than an hour's drive if you want to go for the day. Sorry to say that the area along the coast is too depressing even 5 years after the hurricane. Doubt that we'll stop by again - recovery is just too slow!

Nice overnight stop for us on our way across the panhandle. Friendly and helpful staff. We were in a nice site where we got satellite reception, but if you get on a site under the HUGE oak trees, be prepared for occasional barrages of acorns when a breeze comes up (an autumn phenomenon). A pretty park with lots of restaurants within a few miles.

If you're in the Panhandle area, this is a great park for Destin or Pensecola. Nice paved sites with patios and towed parking spot; friendly staff; they even allow vehicle washing at your site if you are so inclined - and they'll supply a long hose if you need it! Just a short drive over the bridge to the National Seashore. We'll be back!

This park is grossly over-rated. The focus is on park model sales, and the RV traveler is being tolerated as they sell their park models. The paved roads are peppered with speed bumps, the gravel roads are pothole ridden, and you're on your own when trying to find your way in or out of the park. The rate was a weekday special - it costs $196 for the weekend! And the dog policy (see other reviews) was a first for us! No thanks - won't be back!
