This is really an awesome park at a good price (and is Good Sam). Has everything you would want in a park - paved sites and streets, great hookups, dog run, pool, tennis, etc. We would go back in a minute! Great place.

This was a great little park. It was clean and well maintained. The sites were level, and the cable and wireless worked very well. They had 2 small dog runs, a clean pool and much entertainment for kids. Good pull throughs. There really is not much to improve on...but if I had to mention something, it will be that pull throughs are a tad narrow (but could fit any RV) and the price was a little higher than you would expect.

This was a very nice wooded campground with very good cable TV and wireless. The sites are a bit snug, so if you have a large unit, let them know in advance and you will be fine. It also had a nice dog run. There was good gravel on the sites and they were level. Great place to stay and have a nice campfire. We stayed for a few nights to see Cumberland Falls and we would stay again.

We camped in the mountain view section which is quieter and more roomy than the creekside sites, although hotter during the day as they do not get the cool air off of the creek and have much less shade. The campground is nice and there were lots of kids playing as there are many things for them to do. We did not use the bathrooms, so I cannot comment on them. The internal roads are dusty and gravel as it did not rain during the time we were. The road leading up to the campground is very narrow, so you need to drive slow. It is a good campground to use as a base to sightsee in the area. Wi-Fi worked well. We would come back to try the creekside sites.

Basic campground with a mix of gravel and paved sites. Funny thing is that we found the folks behind the counter rather cold and unfriendly even when we tried to make conversation, which is odd since all other reviews say they were friendly. Other than that, our back-in site was adequate, although our electrical box cover was loose and the light on the top of the box fell off. Not a bad campground, but we would not visit again.

This is a very nice RV park - but not a campground. It does not have patios, picnic tables, fire rings or anything else that you would expect. That said, it was a really nice park with a beautiful pond and fountains. Most sites (new ones) are paved and roomy. No cable and wireless is not free, but the price was fair and the campground was very quiet. It is geared to permanent residents. We would stay again.

Nice park, although the entrance is not impressive with a dirt road and many semi-permanent residents. But don't let that stop you as it gets better as you go to the sites in the back - the sites are very long - some of the longest I have seen. The only downside is the utilities are back to back, so someone can pull through next to you (common utility hook up) It has the basics: Full hookups, concrete patios, good internet. Price is right. Work Campers run the check and we very nice. They escorted us to our site. Good location to visit Winnebago factory tour and Clear Lake. We would stay again.

Typical KOA. Facilities are in good shape, although our unpaved spot (paved is an option, but costs more) had mud puddles on it. Free internet that worked very well, the cable TV was also free and had the basic selections. They also have a nice little dog run. We had a leaky water spigot, but they fixed it in 10 minutes. They charge for more than 2 folks (which is common) but also for each pet per day ($2) which I cannot understand since it does not cost them anything. We would probable stop again.

Very nice facilities with beautiful grass, trees and and landscaping. Facilities are also very good. But it does not have a pool, has very basic cable and you need to pay for internet (ok, you get 2 hours per day free). It is a super location if you want to visit Yellowstone as it is only blocks from the west entrance so its great base for the park. I would stay there again - reservations are recommended as it seems it is always busy.

As other reviews have mentioned, the main reason to come here is location. Otherwise it is an old KOA that has not been maintained, which is a shame as it has potential. The roads have potholes that fill up with water when it rains. This also makes the all-grass sites messy. The water smells and tastes metallic. We do not think that it is the campgrounds fault as you can see many places around town that are orange where sprinklers leaves puddles. There must be iron in the water. We would not stay here again.

Good location off the highway, spotless facilities, fair price, long sites, dog run, free cable, free wireless that worked pretty well. But many of the sites are very narrow, so it is not necessarily a destination park, but a great overnight one. There were some train horns in the area, but A/C fans drowned it out while we were sleeping. We would stay again.

This is a great little campground which is right off I-90 in Sundance Wy. Very nice and simple with the amenities you would want or need. After running into trouble at the park at Devils Tower, I did some quick research and came here. MUCH better than the KOA! The owners were nice, helpful and the place was quiet. The sites were long enough for our MH with car. They do charge $2 for cable TV, and for more than 2 people, but the price was still much less than the KOA. Everything was very neat, stocked and clean. Great overnight stop or a base to visit the area.

We made reservations for this campground several months in advance for a stay on Labor day weekend. When I arrived, I was nearly unable to get into the facility due to a car show in their parking lot. I got nasty looks from the car show guys as I pulled in. Once in, I went to the office and signed in and paid my balance. I was then told that there was also a biker gathering here that weekend and that they would be having a live band that would play loudly until at least 2:00am. So much for their "quiet hours". Since my choices were limited, I decided I would stick it out, run the A/C fans at night to drown out the sounds. But once we saw the clientele, we became worried. One allowed his dog to come to our door and bark at us. The person stopped by to get his dog and said, "I hope you got sleep last night since you won't get any tonight!" His T-shirt had the words "Trailer Trash" on it. It was then I knew a parking lot was better than this. The only good ending here is they did refund all of my money (even the non-refundable part) with no questions asked when I left (I did not spend the night), so I was not out any money. But I did need to drive back 25 miles to another campground and then go back in our toad the next day to go to Devils Tower. What bothered me the most here is that I was never told in advance that they would be a crowd / band like this and that the quiet rules were being thrown out the window. Also, it casts doubt in my mind in the family-friendly reputation that KOA projects and the premium price you pay for a KOA. If you make reservations, you may want to call and see if other events have been planned. As far as the campground, the roads were rutted in some placed from the rain. Also, if you look at the pictures on the KOA site, they are NOT all accurate as it does not look that good. We will not be coming back.

This was a great campground. The folks were nice and escorted us to our site. It also had a dog run as well as nice facilities. It had many trees which made for a pretty campground and lots of shade. It was a good campground for visiting the Badlands which is about 5 miles down the road. We would use this campsite again!

OK: this is a tough one as this KOA is in good shape, has many of the things you look for, including a dog run, pool, and was generally clean. But: it is RIGHT on the interstate (I-90) and road noise is pronounced. During the day fighter jets roared overhead. So yes, it's not a bad campground if you don't mind the noise. It does seem there are an awful high amount of KOAs along highways nowadays. Not sure we would stay again.

This is a cute little campground between Des Moines and Kansas City on Interstate 35. It is very clean with great sunsets as it sits up on a ridge overlooking the rolling hills. They had all the necessary amenities including a pool (which looked new), wireless, 50amp, etc. They had a few pull throughs up front for overnighters like us. The owners were very friendly. FYI: There is no cable and NO TV signals. To us, this is not a big deal, but I had never been to a place where my system could not find at least one station. Its really remote.

This is a parking lot. It is all black asphalt with a few trees sprinkled in. It works to visit St Louis as it is very nearby for the Arch, but its spots were short (at least on the one side which is for smaller rigs.) They initially sent us to a spot that would fit a "40 footer", but we were over in the front and back and asked to move. (We are 36 feet.) They reluctantly agreed. Also, it is between commuter trains (not too loud) and freight trains (very loud). We needed to run A/C fan at night to mask the sound so we could sleep. We would stay again but only because it is the only choice around.

This is a very nice campground with beautiful, stunning trees (OK, I am a tree lover). They were tall and will not cause issues to any navigating through the park. OK: maybe for satellite TV, which we do not have. The owners are onsite and very nice. It's a fairly new owner working hard to make the place nice. Very well kept with pull throughs up front for overnighters (like us). If there is a nit pick, some of the sites may be a bit close together.

Bean Pot is a nice little campground. It is an older campground in the more traditional way. Sites seem level and the staff was friendly. Roads were gravel but in good condition. We only overnighted here and did not get the chance to use the amenities. It works well as an overnight place as it is not too far off I-40. We would stay again.

We have been here several times and have always been happy. I figured it was time to write a review. It is a GREAT campground (actually a RV resort) as it has anything you would want. The sites are the biggest I have ever seen, with a beautiful lake, walking/riding paths, shuffleboard, horseshoes, playground, peddleboats, volleyball. Plus rentals on golf carts, bikes and small boats for fishing in their lake. The reason they "only" got a 9 is lack of cable TV and poor Internet. The reason for these issues is due to their relatively remote location (no cable run) and their Internet is Satellite based. But I was able to pull some local channels on the TV antenna, and besides, that's not why you would come here. This time, we came for Halloween, which sold out. They have many activities including pumpkin carving, pet and people costume contests, golf cart decorating contests as well as a pretty awesome "Haunted Trail." They went to great lengths to "haunt" one of their trails with lights, smoke, etc. and then have folks jump out while we were on the hayride. They must have been over 15 "ghouls" in the path. It was very memorable. We will be returning again as this place is great for families, and as quiet getaways (we have been here for both).

Not a bad stop over, although it is 2 miles in from I-40, which takes it away from most of the highway noise. But it is an older campground with grass sites, but paved roads. No on-site restaurant, but there are places to eat and shop, including a Super Wal-Mart right off the same exit. We would stay again.

Very nice wooded campground with cable, pull through, good wireless, etc. I really don't have anything bad to say about this campground. It is located right off I-40, which is very convenient, but since it is so convenient, you can hear I-40 pretty clearly. Other than that, we would definitely stop by again. They also had a on-site restaurant, which we did not try, but had reasonable prices. Makes a great overnight stay.

As with most campgrounds in Arizona and NM, it was a basic campground with gravel roads and sites which were very level. Had everything you would want including free wireless. Had an on-site restaurant which smelled good as we walked by, but we did not try it. Great for an overnight stay as it is right off I-40 without the noise. It is located on Route 66. One note, they do not post their pricing on their site.

This was a nice campground with all of the amenities you would want, including free wireless internet. We used it as base camp for Petrified Forest/Painted Desert which worked well. As with most campgrounds in Arizona and NM, it was all gravel (sites and roads) but it was not dusty when we were there. Sites were very level. I would recommend this campground and come again.

This was a beautiful campground. Fully paved, very level, beautiful landscaped, nice pools, Wi-Fi (OK, it wasn't free), good cable, and multiple dog runs (even a non-pet area for folks who don't want them around.) I don't give 10s often, but this was an easy one. We liked the campground better than Vegas! Vegas was disappointing...

The main advantage to this campground is location, location, location. Some sites are not very level (a problem we had), the roads are old, the "other side" of the park is mostly (if not all) employees/residents who do not keep their sites very nice, and there is no wireless. Also, if you have a dog, you may want to watch for sap from the tress (pine cones) and burrs from the local weeds. It was challenging getting that out of their hair. That being said, we would come back in a minute because the location is super! You are only minutes from the rim, the shuttle stops there every 15 minutes, we were able to come back for meals and it gave us the basics such as water, sewer, 50Amp, basic cable. And the rate was very low. Since most of our time was at the canyon, it becomes less important how nice your site is.

Nice wooded park. Most sites level enough, but not perfect. Some leveling challenges here and there. Deluxe sites very nice with grass and patio. Wireless worked very well - even in the back. Cable was also clear. Helpful staff. Well landscaped. We would come again. We used it as a base for site-seeing.

Nice park, well kept. Great for an overnight as it is easy to get in and out. No grass, but well maintained gravel sites and paved roads. Small dog run. Nice owner. Did hear trains in the distance and is next too a small airport, although was not active after dark. We would stay again.

Basic park for this part of the country. Nice view of Tucumcari mountain. Everything was in good shape. Not much greenery, but then, New Mexico doesn't have it anyway. Owner friendly. Owners offer nightly menu for dinner. We did not try it, but the reputation is good. Great town to check out for RT 66 stuff. Next time we would stay an extra day.

Very nice park and dedicated owner. Nice oak trees, paved roads and a dog run. All campgrounds should have dog runs! Has cable TV. Good overnight campground. We would come again.

We loved this campground. This is our second year here for our anniversary. We love it, as it is quiet and great for relaxing. That said, there are not many activities, but it is quite close to Asheville for things you may want to do. And although all the roads are pretty steep, it is one of the easiest mountain campgrounds to get to. We already made reservation for next year. Reservations are recommended, especially during the fall.

Very nice campground, first time we visited. Would have given it a 10 except the roads in the campground need a little work. The campground is very wooded and the trees are causing the road to buckle in several places. Roads are definitely doable, but do watch and go slow in areas. For the casual bike rider, leave the bicycles at home, the roads are hilly. Campground offered scheduled activities for the kids, but the Stone Mountain Park had so much to do that we didn't have a free minute to get to it all. We recommend this campground and visiting the Stone Mountain Park. We'll be visiting again.

We have been to the other Myrtle Beach campgrounds, and found this one to be friendly and accommodating. We had some cable TV problems, but they were quick to resolve the issue. We stayed in the inland section for shade, sites were level. Park was quiet in spite of it being Biker Week. This is the only park out of the big three Myrtle Beach campgrounds that do not allow motorcycles to go beyond the front gate. We would visit again.

This was a great stopping point for traveling! Right off the Interstate and well priced. Its is probably one of the best combinations of price and a nice campground. There is not much to do, but everything was new and clean and the WiFi worked well, although there was no cable TV. Our site was level and we would use it again if coming through the area.

The campground was nice and well kept. Our site was a pull through that was very long (100ft) and level. The only issue was that we went to Charleston in June and it was very hot with lots of mosquitoes. It was nearby the Splash park which was convenient.

This is a relatively new campground that is geared for dogs, which is a neat idea. We brought our 2 dogs (Cockerpoo and Yorkie) and they had a great time. Although it is great for dogs, kids may be bored. Ours were not, because they like playing with the dogs in the dog runs. Our site was a bit unlevel, but I was able to level our Motorhome without lifting any of the wheels off. Roads to the campground were not too bad and it was pretty easy to get to. The owners were very friendly and helpful with dog advice and training.

Jellystone is a "classic" campground. It appears to be around 20 years old with many sites of all different sizes and configurations. Most are for TTs and Popups. I think the biggest rig they can handle is about 40ft - and not too many of them. Overall it is a nice CG with its best feature a river that hugs the edge of it. It nice for wading and many people use it for gentle tubing. The pool looked clean although we did not use it. We also did not check out the the showers/baths. The roads are gravel/dirt and a bit narrow in spots. Also the office is not near the entrance so you need to drive into the CG a bit. Most folks looked lost when they first came in looking for it. We give it an 8 since we did have some issues, although most of the staff were very nice and apologetic. The cable never really worked. It worked a little the first day and then went out completely. The other issue we had was with power. On the second day our Surge Guard kicked off a few times. We called the CG staff to make sure it was not our device, but found one leg was only putting out 98v. We moved to the 30amp connection and had a few problems with that too. We believe it had to do with load since the CG was packed. Once everyone left, we never had another problem. Despite the issue, we would probably come back since it is a pretty location and we want to try to get one of the limited large sites along the river. The sites were level - ours was nearly perfect. Cell phones do not work here.
