Price reflects PA discount. Road from I-17 to the campground is a little convoluted. We had to call and wait to check in. WiFi was slow and Verizon signal was weak. Campground itself was nice as were the people. Really good price for an overnight. We would stay again in a pinch.

We stayed here a few years back. I will reiterate my opinion about the inconsiderate clientele that seems to frequent this park. As someone else mentioned, lots of permanents with loud trucks and early departures. Fire pit next to us was overflowing with partially burned trash and garbage, beer cans, Styrofoam meat wrappers, etc., and there was lots of food around our picnic table tempting our dogs. New since our last visit were the worst potholes we've ever encountered inside an RV park. I don't believe we will stay here again.

Rate is for weekly stay. It's a smaller park with mostly paved streets and gravel sites. Many permanents and stored units around. Lots of sites are not level as previously mentioned. We had to pull to the front of the site to receive a satellite signal and our wheels were off the ground. Laundry has only three machines and one was out of order. Park appears to be installing cable. WiFi was spotty. Looks like the showers are pay. The pool was not yet open but appeared to be nice. Was a little surprised they allowed a smelly horse trailer to occupy a site near campers. Lots of grassy areas would be nice if fenced for dog runs. We would stay again.

We had a back-in site at the far end of the park. There was some highway noise and sites were not very level. The facilities are exceptionally nice, and it looks like they are in the process of expanding. We especially enjoyed the fact that public transportation is available to and from the park and it is only a short distance if you choose to drive to the Metro train station in College Park. There were many green areas for the dogs including an off-leash area. Wi-Fi did not work too well, but we had a good Verizon signal. We would definitely return due to proximity to DC, despite the painful price tag.

Price is for weekly rate full hookup gravel pull-through. Easy access off I-95 and we resorted to our good Verizon signal since the Wi-Fi was up and down. Dog run was nice but needed mowing. Fitness room best I've seen in years of travel. Nice store staffed with friendly people. We enjoyed the delightful free waffle breakfasts and coffee served up every morning. We seemed to be back from the highway noise at the front of the park. Many of the sites looked a little close together, but ours was generous. Signage to the park was excellent! We would definitely stay again.

Member price for this high desert part with gravel back ins. We had 30 amp FHU and electric is now included. Verizon worked well. Off-leash area for the dogs. We will definitely stay again.

Gated park has easy access off I-40. We arrived after dark and were directed to a long level gravel pull-thru. Verizon signal and utilities all worked as expected. We drove the few miles out to the meteor crater in the morning, which was most impressive. We would definitely stay again.

Nice guarded park is convenient to shopping and the Strip. There may as well be no rules whatsoever, as there appears to be no adherence or enforcement. Speeding cars and rigs, roller blading, skate boards, lunging dogs tied outside unsupervised, and young children in the adult pool area and spa to name a few. Numerous rigs appear to be unoccupied, or 'stored' in sites and there are many permanent ones. One burned out trailer sat there our entire stay. The numerous small enclosed dog areas are a long walk from most sites, and consist of dirt and/or rocks and offer little room to run and play. Upon arrival we were sent to a site that was occupied by another rig and moved to a second location where we had a view of bird droppings from the overhead billboard. First impression as we pulled in was nice, but in general, we were disappointed for the amount we paid. Unsure if we would stay again.

Price reflects monthly rate and electric. This newer small park is paved and gated on the canal around Lake Okeechobee. We were parked directly across from the office where we had excellent WiFi signal most of the time. The Tiki hut on the water was nice as were the camp hosts. The water comes out of the tap brown so we bought bottled water for drinking and cooking and used color catchers in the wash. One of our dogs, as was our nephew's dog, was attacked by fire ants while being walked As previously mentioned, the pool is not heated. It's a good distance into town. We would stay again.

Price reflects Passport America discount. Park has easy access from I-95. Airport noise was very loud but did not seem to keep us awake at night. Lots of long term folks, speeding rigs and cars, and intermittent WiFi signals were the negatives. Pool looked nice, and for a FHU paved site, so was the price. Will definitely stay again.

Reservation process was a little labored due to a staff member who did not seem to have the best English skills. GPS was wacky in the area, but we followed the directions on the web site, which got us there. Gravel roads led us to the concrete river front pad where we watched as barges pushed their mammoth loads against the tremendous power of the Mighty Mississippi River just yards away. It was off season, but two nights out of three we brought our trash back in despite the brochure indications it would be picked up three times per day, just to keep the critters out. Wi-Fi was so sporadic we had to rely on our Verizon MiFi from the coach. Aside from that, we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.

Price reflects Good Sam discount. We used to stay here $20/night for two nights plus a third night free. Oasis Silver Cards are no longer valid. The park has changed ownership and is now priced as indicated. The sites are more than generous. There is a fenced dog area for the pups. Highway noise is not an issue although it is most convenient to I-40. Wi-Fi was up and down causing us to resort to our Verizon MiFi for service. Winds can be fierce and drifting smells from the nearby feed lot into the campground. We will definitely stay here, just west of Amarillo, at this nice park again.

Price reflects Value Kard discount for a long gravel pull through space. Friendly staff, and further off the highway, but still heard a little noise. Fenced pet areas with grass, and WiFi worked okay. We did not have the strongest Verizon signal but definitely not a real problem. Restaurant serves breakfast and dinner. It's a good overnight stop. We would stay again.

Price reflects senior parks discount. We stayed early in the week. Park is paved with large sites which include grill and covered picnic table. Our site had a lake view with 50 amps and water. Front desk clerk was pleasant and helpful. Park was quiet and our site was level. We would definitely stay again.

Price reflects Good Sam discount. It is very apparent the owner takes great pride in the park, and host is very pleasant to work with as well. Everything is immaculate and nicely decorated. Tall shade trees mean satellite can be difficult to reach, but with some maneuvering, it happens. Park is security gated. Roads and sites are level gravel. There is an off-leash dog area and playground. Park is convenient to shopping and restaurants. There is, of course, road noise from I-10, but we were not bothered by it. We would definitely stay again!

Campground is a distance off the beaten path -- very quiet. Area is heavily wooded and fall foliage was gorgeous, but we were unable to connect via our roof TV satellite. WiFi was marginal. We did not look at the restrooms, and had a good Verizon signal. We would stay again.

Rate is weekly for a paved full thru with 50 amp FHU. Park is convenient to interstates and shopping; although, there is some highway noise in parts of the park as well as airline traffic from the nearby JAX airport. Pool looked nice as did many of the activities. We enjoyed reasonably priced breakfasts at the on-site restaurant. There were two nice swimming beaches on the lake but we were a bit intimidated by the turtles that have obviously been well fed by guests and the possibility of gators in this part of the country. WiFi worked quite well, which we really appreciated, given our many bad experiences during our travels. Dog bags were provided as well as a small enclosed off-leash area. We would definitely return.

Rate for site was included in our rally registration. Main road into the fairgrounds was closed for construction causing us to make a detour of several blocks. Trains are loud at times, but generally a nice park with ample level sites and good utilities. We have stayed several times and would definitely stay again.

Rate reflects VK discount for a deluxe pull-through with deck and patio furniture. Check in is up a substantial flight of stairs for seniors and those with disabilities. Route into park is curvy with lots of hills. Interior roads and sites are gravel and fairly narrow. Dog off-leash park is long, but not very wide since there is a divider down the middle. Appeared to be lots of activities for the kids. We stayed two nights and would stay again.

Note to fellow campers: It is NOT acceptable to leave cigarette butts or other trash, including peanut and sunflower seed shells at your campsite when you depart -- not even in the fire pit! Beyond that, we have stayed numerous times at this pretty park. As other reviewers have indicated, many of the larger sites are not very level. This year there seems to be some difficulty tracking reservations since ours, as did our friends' reservation, became lost. The grass is not being maintained as well as past years and there were some serious ruts and ditches in and near the road that it looks like they filled with loose gravel. We will probably stay again.

Price reflects weekly rate. What we once believed was a classy RV resort has, in our opinion, deteriorated into an 'anything goes' campground. Although the park is often full, some premium sites are occupied for weeks and months by vacant RVs displaying for sale signs. Security drives through regularly, but this visit we saw a non-RV trailer parked in a pull thru site with a mattress outside just feet from the RV in the site next to it. Several times campers rented an RV site for a tent (even though the park had vacant rental Tipis). Pick-up trucks with camper shells seem to be permitted. One party had two cars, a truck, a camper and two tents on their site in blatant violation of rules #1 and #2 and yet another had an RV and a tent. Public consumption of alcohol outdoors is ignored as is speeding through the park. One guy even ran a power saw outdoors while remodeling his RV's interior, stacking the trash out beside the curb -- unbelievable! Pull thru occupants should not be allowed to stay with dogs given the proximity of the adjoining site. We will probably stay again, but it would sure be nice if there was some attempt to keep it classy or at least enforce the rules.

We are unsure of the nightly rate as we stayed as guests of friends here. Park had lots of green areas between sites and is divided into pet friendly and not pet friendly sections. Large concrete sites were well spaced, and the staff was very friendly. We ate breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. We would definitely return.

Rate reflects Golden Age discount. Camp hosts were exceptionally nice and helpful. Large sites, but roads were a little narrow with some low branches and tighter turns for bigger rigs. If there were showers, I'm not sure where they were located. Nice amphitheater and walkway to the popular prairie dog area. It would have been nice had the grass been mowed before Father's Day weekend. Very nice shaded views and convenient to the tower. Verizon signal was weak. Water pressure was low, and yes, it had to be held continually, and no dump station seemed strange. We were given strict generator hours of only between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. and between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., which was really inconvenient for us. We found 11 ticks on our dogs and in our coach in four days, and then there were the swarming, intrusive box elder bugs along with mosquitoes. It's a very pretty place, and the price is right! So we would definitely stay again but probably another season.

There are no discounted rates. Price is for a 50 amp full hook-up in the lower level front section and payable in cash or check only. Streets were asphalt and we were parked on gravel. Site was very narrow, so we could not extend our awning without touching the rig next to us. At the entrance to the park are a number of truck camper shells with cars parked in front of them. I am uncertain if they are part of this park or just an adjacent one. The map we were given was quite confusing and a number of the sites in our area were unmarked. The office personnel also seemed confused about this. Lots of permanents living in older rigs. We would avoid this one if possible, but would stay again in a pinch.

Park has very narrow asphalt sites with water and electric. A picnic table and nice grassy area for dogs. It was fine for an overnight, but nothing more for us. I took the dogs out late and there was a young family with a baby coming from the restroom area. Also, stables are nearby, so the smell of horses is definitely in the air. We would stay again -- but only overnight.

Price reflects Value Kard discount for a 50 amp pull through site. Gravel road and sites were somewhat narrow, but we were on the end, so it worked out well for an overnight. We did not go that direction but noted that the brochure mentioned a left turn out of the park to northbound I-25 has a 12'11" clearance. There appeared to be many long term folks and some tenters, but we would certainly stop again for a night or two.

Price reflects Good Sam discount for a 50 amp pull through site. Park is divided into two sections, and we stayed in the south end. Roads and sites were gravel with some vehicles sticking out into the roads and low branches. Trees were inconveniently placed and could interfere with satellite, but we were able to situate on the back end for reception. Park is older but well maintained. Sites were a little too close for comfort and the price. There are many long term folks, so the park appears to stay almost full. There is some train noise, but it was not really an issue for us. We ate at the barbecue restaurant on site for $16, and the food and atmosphere was really nice. We would stay again.

Price reflects VK discount. If you make the drive out here, pay the extra money for a pull in site with a view. The drive to the park is winding with very steep grades. Altitude is around 9000 feet. You must actually pass the park and then wind your way down and back up to it several miles. We saw one fifth wheel stalled on the way to the top of the hill (probably overheated). We fought gusty winds during our stay and needed to lower the satellite and pull in slides and even encountered a dusting of snow late May. Dog area is not fenced and has no grass along the busy roadway. WiFi worked fairly well as did Verizon. Sites are concrete (and too narrow for the price IMO), but all else is large gravel and dust. Casinos are close but groceries are not. We enjoyed the view but will probably not return.

Price reflects daily rate plus $7/day required Colorado Parks pass - if you do not possess the seasonal pass available for $70/year. If you must have shade trees, you may not be happy here. But the western sky is shaded by the mountain by late afternoon. Sites are large, nicely spaced, concrete and asphalt with full hook-ups and picnic and tent areas. There are miles of bike and walking trails. Dogs are allowed in the park but prohibited from walking on the trails. Big rigs towing, don't miss the small sign to keep left at the roundabout near the entrance. Upon our departure we were forced to turn right on Highway 115 due to an event at the military base and drove several miles out of our way before finding a suitable place to turn around. We would most definitely stay again.

Price is $20/night for Pinion D-Loop, with electric only, but requires a $7/day pass for your car if you do not have the Colorado State Parks pass ($70/year). Gorgeous mountain views. We did experience some winds. Verizon signal was good. Good highway access to 160 and I-25 is not too far away. I used the showers which were $1.50 for 10 minutes which accepts quarters only. Our pull through was a bit tight on the exit for our big rig. There are community water sources and trash receptacles scattered throughout the park. We would stay again.

Price reflects Mother's Day weekend special discount and weekly rate. Camp hosts and staff were exceptionally nice. Roads and sites are gravel and got fairly muddy with rain. They could have been more level. We arrived to find lots of deer droppings where we needed to walk outside our rig. The dog off-leash areas were lacking much grass but there was a grassy area with bags on the way to them. We had good Verizon signal and enjoyed the pancake/waffle breakfast to benefit sending kids to camp. First campground where we've been required to be escorted out of our site. We would stay again.

We stayed last minute at our third choice campground. Staff was extremely helpful in getting us in although our site was not really big rig friendly. Gravel roads and sites with picnic tables and most sites also had new sod. Evergreens are inconveniently placed at the end making a right turn difficult. Campers are allowed to park along the peripheral roads making for difficult turns. Appeared to be lots of long term folks. Nice mountain views. We would stay again if needed.

Price is actually $10/night with some added fees. Each site has a concrete patio with built-in fire pit, and covered picnic table. The park and sites are paved asphalt with no hook-ups and gorgeous lake views. The setting is beautiful with bison and other wildlife roaming and lake access. However, we stayed during the April/May period about which we were warned of "biting gnats." A combination of factors, including the very aggressive (underscored) swarms of biting gnats, weak Verizon signal, corkscrew burrs on our dogs every single outing, and the weather forecast weighed our decision to forfeit our fee for the second night and leave a day early. We would camp again but not early spring.

Price reflects weekly rate. Roads are asphalt as are cramped sites. Front desk folks are very cordial. The comments about low-flying planes are understated. This park is on a the Truckee River, directly across from which is the primary runway for the Reno-Tahoe Airport. The sound of a 737 jetliner the approximate distance of a football field above your coach all day long and occasionally during the night is a bit much. The pool was not open but appeared to be run down. The adjacent public park is very busy during the weekend. The rules require that you walk your dog outside of the park on a public walking/bike trail (where I witnessed homeless people sleeping), which can be a little frightening if your dog needs to go out at 4 in the morning in the dark, not to mention a bit difficult for the dogs to hold it until they get there. Furthermore, there are only two points of access to the trail and not at all dog friendly in my opinion. Lots of long term folks with run-down rigs and damaged cars Low branches all over the place. We will not stay again.

Price reflects weekly rate. Park has good access from Hwy 50 with paved roads and gravel sites. The trees are maturing and made for a lot of maneuvering for our big rig and slides to fit. We were parked in the lower section where there were lots of empty sites and some rigs advertised for sale. We loved the $3.33 breakfast scramble at Bodine's Casino across the street as well as the proximity to Walmart, Costco and the off-leash dog park at the park down the street. There appeared to be an indoor flea market next to the park which was only open certain days. It's a wonderful drive to Lake Tahoe or to Reno from here. Staff was very helpful. We had a great stay and would definitely return.

Weekly rate reflects discount. Park has very convenient access to I-5 and restaurants. Roads are paved and sites are part gravel and part broken concrete. Utilities worked well. Overnight, long term and stored RVs are about equal in number. Staff was exceptionally nice and accommodating. We experienced several days of very high winds, which made our stay less comfortable, but we would definitely stay again.

Price reflects 50 amp FHU pull-through site. This was our second stay. The park is no frills, no reservations, sites selected on a first-come, first-served basis. Basically a large asphalt parking lot with 50 amp pull-through and 30 amp back-in sites. 30 amp sites are $20/night. Beware of the coyotes and the winds. We would stay again.

Price includes Good Sam discount. The street was partially concrete with gravel and gravel sites which are long but narrow in this small park. Park is convenient to local attractions, restaurants and shopping and very well lit at night. The lady in the front office was not dressed in American attire and apparently did not understand my request for tourist info, handing me a business card for the resort instead. Despite the disorganization, I managed to find what I was seeking with the rack cards. We would stay again.

Price reflects monthly rate. The park is part concrete and part gravel. Sites are gravel with concrete patios and bushes separating sites. Turns can be a little tight for big rigs. Park was clean but trash overflowed frequently. Camp hosts were friendly as were many of the long term folks. We found the WiFi to work quite well. Verizon also worked much better than it had across the river on the Arizona side. We enjoyed the pool area and the laundry was nice as well. There is some train and highway noise in the distance. Easy access from I-40 made this smaller park full almost every night while we were there. We would definitely return.

We stayed on an asphalt site right on the lake. We had a gorgeous view with electric only. Verizon signal was very weak much of the time. They are in the process of upgrading and putting in full hook up sites. We would probably not stay again as we rely on Verizon for business.

Price reflects Golden Passport discount. Park was a little difficult for us to locate, but it is a beautiful setting on a lake. Lots of trees made satellite reception difficult, but we did get a signal and had a good Verizon signal as well. I was a little surprised to see some longer term campers and it was fairly dark at night but the stars were nice. We only stayed two nights and had to clean the tops of our slides as the walnuts and acorns were falling. We would definitely stay again!

Price reflects Escapees membership. Campground is older with some tight turns and branches, but well maintained. We had a long pull through site, mostly level on gravel with 50 amp FHU and satellite access. Verizon signal worked well. There is a nice off-leash dog area and the folks were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed a $3 biscuit and gravy breakfast before we took off. Access is not recommended through Old Town Branson in an RV. We took the Hollister exit Highway 76. We would definitely return.

Price reflects Good Sam discount. We have been coming here for years and have noticed a number of improvements in the appearance of the park. Groceries and a nice Mexican restaurant are just across the highway. Owners are extremely nice and accommodating! There are pull throughs and back ins, and some are gravel and others are concrete. Road leading out to the park and some of the roads in the park could use repair. Drive slowly from the interstate and you should be okay. We will definitely return.

Price reflects VK discount for a 50 amp FHU pull-through site. We requested satellite friendly and the first site was not. So they moved us to another one. Roads to and from the park are narrow as are the internal campground roads. Our compact 40' RV and tow vehicle did not fit completely onto the pull through site. Below-ground fire pits are a tripping/falling hazard. Dog fenced area was small and dirty. For the price we paid, we expected more. We will probably look elsewhere next visit.

As other reviewers have mentioned, hook ups are locked until you pay inside the gift/smoke shop. Check in was painful for us as another camper ran in ahead to get in line while her husband struggled to park their big fifth wheel unassisted. There was way too much paperwork to complete for an overnight stay. The clerk allowed two locals to then cut in ahead of me to buy cigarettes after my long wait for the previous camper, and then assisted a third cigarette buyer during our transaction. We had little to no Verizon signal and the WiFi signal was marginal. We enjoyed a great breakfast (despite the smoking permitted inside the restaurant) at the casino, dumped our tanks at the gas station and took care of some business at the post office next door. We will probably not stay again as we rely heavily on Verizon for internet and phone service.

Casino parking lot with W/E hook ups and a dump station. Only accept cash or checks at the hotel desk, but it's a good deal. Sites are close and part asphalt/dirt/gravel and have convenient access from the main road. Looks like they may be expanding something beyond it. The campground area of the parking lot was not lit at night so it was really dark but there was a security patrol. We would stay again.

Price reflects weekly rate. Park is beautiful but poorly managed. The RV wash left a residue on our coach but at least it was working this visit. Young people in the office seem to hold responsibilities beyond their capabilities. The park is making reservations for two and three years out with waiting lists. For the second time our reservation was messed up and we were placed in a pull through rather than a back in site we reserved. During our three week stay we had to move once, and two other campers told us they had been required to move three and four times during their stays: very inconvenient! The next occupant was waiting as we were moving from our first site and as we were moving from our second site the next tenant was moving things in. It felt like a huge game of musical chairs. We observed unoccupied RVs in premium spaces and others which appeared to be utilized as permanent residences for large families with young kids. Until reservation policies are improved, we will be looking for something else.

We stayed four nights in our 40' motor home. There are some 50 amp sites but we chose to stay in a 30 amp site. We were unable to get satellite signal due to overhead trees, which provided very nice shade. Roads and sites are dirt/grass with lots of sand. It was a little tight getting into our site and we had to back out of it. Owners were quite helpful. Many other campgrounds in the vicinity do not allow dogs whatsoever, but they allowed dogs with considerate owners. Campground was fairly quiet on a busy weekend and other campers seemed seasonal and very respectful. Although we would not necessarily recommend for big rigs, we were fine and would probably stay again, due to its location near our relatives.

Park name has changed to Lakeside Casino RV Park. Someone told us that Terrible's had gone bankrupt. The park appears to have had WiFi at one time, but it was not working and our Verizon signal was very weak. We were able to access the internet with our MiFi only part of the day. True the pavement is in bad repair but utilities worked well and most welcome in the 100 plus degree heat. Lunch buffet in the casino was available from 11-2 for $8.99 which we found to be excellent. It's an inexpensive overnight stop and not a destination. Very convenient to Pilot/Flying J. Pick a site and pay cash or check at valet parking at the casino entrance.

Beautiful campground! We were surprised to find new camp hosts this year, but they all seemed very friendly. There was a burn ban due to dry conditions during our visit, so open fires and grills were prohibited. Lots of deer roaming early morning and evening. Security gate, paved roads and pull thru sites are also paved, remaining sites are gravel. Park is within walking distance to Lake Jacomo and there is a 14-day maximum stay in the Jackson County Parks.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. This was our second stay. It was extremely hot and the pull through site we were assigned was unable to reach a satellite signal from our roof due to poorly planned tree placement. There was cable TV, but we are better accustomed to using our roof-mounted satellite dish. Roads and sites are gravel and there was quite a bit of dust this visit. The park offers nothing exceptional for the price, but we would probably stay again.

Nice campground with few rules. Roads are asphalt and sites are concrete. Speed limit is NOT enforced and cars and rigs are traveling too fast inside a campground filled with children: recipe for disaster if you ask me. If you are looking for "quiet hours" there aren't any. We had old dog excrement on our site from previous campers, and there is road noise from I-435. Park is convenient to Freightliner, Cummins and shopping. We enjoyed a great view of numerous fireworks displays. Lots of kids in the park. We will most likely stay again.

Price reflects internet special - stay one night, second night half price for a pull through site. What we liked: Shaded pull through reasonably priced with the special, free shuttle service to Temple Square (which is actually a service of the Mormon Church). Once construction is finished the park will be right on the light rail line, weekend all-you-can-eat pancake breakfasts for $3. What we disliked: Wi-Fi was difficult to connect/maintain, holes in asphalt, water hoses sprinkling continually on our site, trees planted too close to site exit making right turn difficult for big rigs, inconvenient dog walk in area filled with fox tails, missed turn due to construction and had to make our way through the trailer park and turn around at the actual park entrance when we found it. We will most likely stay elsewhere next visit.

The beach rates a 10. We also encountered older, run-down RVs that appear rather permanent at the front of the park, which was almost filled. They made room for us in a tight back-in spot and we were unable to get one slide out due to the proximity of a tree. The previous "guests" left trash and bagged dog waste in and around the fire ring and on the narrow strip of grass on our site. The folks next to us had far too many people on one space and left their trash out over night, which the critters managed to litter all about. As mentioned previously, the dumpsters were beyond smelly, and the dirt here was the dirtiest dirt my dogs have ever tracked into the coach. Roads were bumpy and dusty with barely visible speed bumps and ruts. Propane was reasonably priced. Their tent sites near the beach would be spectacular in my opinion. Wi-Fi and Verizon signals were slow. We would stay again, but only because of the awesome beach access.

This was a nice place to stay: well designed, landscaped, and neatly manicured. The trees are immature as the park appears to be fairly new, so there is little shade but excellent satellite reception. As other reviewers have mentioned, there is a nice big open grassy area for the dogs and a very open feel to the park. We did not use the golf course. We were continually serenaded by a loud bullfrog but were able to tune him out after a few hours. We would definitely stay again.

Price reflects Good Sam discount rate. We stayed overnight after a long drive and management was very helpful and accommodating, getting us in on short notice. We were guided to a pull through with a gorgeous view of the river. All hookups worked well, although we did not try the cable TV. Very convenient off of Highway 101, so there was some highway noise. No problem with Verizon cell or data signals. I do not ordinarily give unpaved parks an 8 rating, but this one deserves it. We would definitely stay again.

Price reflects Value Kard discount for a deluxe patio site. Staff was helpful and friendly. Site was concrete, spacious and well equipped. We encountered some low branches at the entrance, and the grassy spaces, including the dog off-leash area, needed mowing. Views were spectacular. Park is very convenient to shopping and has easy access off Hwy. 101. We wished we could have stayed longer and would definitely stay again.

Price charged seemed to be more than I anticipated from the web site. I think we may have been charged an Internet reservation fee. Easy access from I-5 with some road and train noise. Newer park with level concrete sites and paved roads. Trees are not yet mature. Park was nicely maintained and sites were fairly wide. There were two sewer connections per site so you could park front or back with your vehicle or a guest. Our site had a tree oddly placed in the way of our awning. We would stay again.

Price reflects weekly rate. Narrow paved roads make navigating a big rig difficult. Well kept older park but concrete sites are very narrow and terraced. We were unable to connect with the weak Wi-Fi signal the entire two-week stay. We barely had room for our car and rig and there was nowhere nearby for a guest to park. Dog rules and signage were ridiculous. Staff was courteous and efficient. Park was well maintained. We will probably look for something else next visit.

Price reflects Good Sam discount. We arrived late without a reservation and, although the campground was full, they allowed us to stay in an overflow site (30 amp full hook ups) until morning when we could move to a better location. Roads and sites are asphalt with a tight turn for big rigs but basically a good experience. There were some long term unsightly rigs there. But this was our second stay and I gave it a higher rating as my husband describes the owner/manager as "the most upbeat woman" he has encountered in a park office. No wonder the campground was full -- great hospitality and customer service. We would stay again.

Rate reflects Internet special plus $1/day per dog for two dogs (not available on weekends). This was our third time in the park and our first time in the newer section. Our site was too small for our 40' RV and compact SUV. We either had to park so close to the slide we could not get out of the passenger side or hang out onto the road in the front. We could not put out our small window awning on one side for the tree on our neighbor's site. It's unfortunate that when they added this section they did not lengthen the sites but chose to have a grassy area of several feet in back. Only part of the park is paved and the gravel area is huge and stirs up dust. Lots of long term folks and kids living here, but most of them keep their sites tidy. The dog off-leash area was basically hard dirt and foxtails. The pool looked nice but we did not use it. Park is convenient to shopping. Park Wi-Fi and Verizon worked very well. We would stay again.

Price reflects weekly rate for a premium pull-through asphalt site. Staff was friendly and helpful. We encountered some low branches on the way in off of Highway 49 as well as at our site. Wi-Fi was good as was our Verizon and Mi-Fi. Very convenient to shopping. We have stayed several times before and will stay again if in the area.

Rate reflects 50% off week's stay coupon plus electric usage for a 50 amp full hook-up site. This is one of the friendliest parks we have visited. We took the tour and enjoyed learning how the residents volunteer to maintain and staff the park. Roads were paved with steep hills and some tight turns for big rigs. Sites are large and most are gravel. Nights are very quiet and the stars are spectacular. Verizon signal and MiFi worked fine. The park gets well deserved high ratings, however, our personal preference is not so far off the beaten path. We had great difficulty trying to keep the foxtails and corkscrews off of our long-haired dogs just from walking them along the paved streets. There were lots of interesting birds and other wildlife. We would stay again, mostly because of the nice people and outstanding value.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. This was our second stay and very enjoyable. Gated entry, paved roads with concrete sites, some with lake views, fenced off-leash dog area and free round of golf, as others have mentioned. Landscaping around our site was tight with four slides, but overall a lovely park and a nice experience. Groceries are nearby. We will stay again.

We stayed five nights and really enjoyed this park. As the name suggests, there are roosters crowing, the sound of horses, and the smell of manure on occasion. There are many long-term campers here, but the short term folks seem to be located together. Only a couple of sites were not well kept. We did not try the pool, but it looked very nice. Park is small but gated. The sites are level, concrete or gravel, many with grass between, lots of dumpsters, and grassy areas for the pets. The atmosphere is laid-back and relaxed without unnecessary rules, but there are apparently many rude guests who are not picking up after their dogs despite bags being provided. Wi-Fi worked very well as did our Verizon. We will definitely stay again.

Price reflects weekly rate. I cannot honestly say this park is "big rig friendly" but we managed with our 40'er. Gated small park with paved streets and concrete sites that were somewhat close together. Many sites are satellite restrictive with overhead trees. Nice pool was not really open and heated yet during our visit. People were super friendly and we would stay again in a pinch.

Price reflects VK discount. The park has some asphalt and some concrete streets and sites. There are two large Kamp K-9's for the dogs nicely located on the far side of the park as well as a nice pet walk area overlooking a ravine and a huge grassy area as well. Also there is a dog bath $6 for 10 minutes which includes shampoo, conditioner, dryer, etc. Very nice trees and landscaping and we asked for a satellite friendly site and it worked well between the trees and hill. Verizon signal was strong and Tengonet WiFi worked very reliably. I agree there is highway noise and some sites are rather small. There appears to be no attempt to enforce the rules, with campers placing their drying laundry on their vehicles in front of their sites and/or clotheslines strung about and screaming kids unattended and running the park after dark. We would stay again.

Rate is for weekly stay. Our first site was too tight for our 40' motorhome and the second site they trimmed a palm to fit us. We stayed in a pull through gravel site with FHU. Streets are asphalt. I thought it was an over 55 resort but there were lots of kids about. Also seemed to be lots of semi-permanent/long term folks. Nice people, convenient to shopping. We would stay again.

This is a delightful park with paved roads, gravel back-in sites with large concrete patios. There were no picnic tables but sites were good sized both length and width. Security was excellent and there were nice grassy dog areas. Many sites are owned with nice structures and landscapes as the park appears to be newer. We did not visit many amenities but would definitely stay again. There was some air traffic noise, but we were not bothered by it.

Price reflects Escapee membership and does not include electricity. Park has a combination of paved and gravel roads. Sites are gravel with picnic tables with beautiful mountain views and pleasant, high desert weather. 30 amp back-in site was all that was available but we were fine with that. As mentioned by another reviewer, park is divided by deeded lots and temporary sites. Rainbow park means first in - first out parking. Off-leash dog area is on the periphery of the property and is all dirt/gravel. It is a distance of approximately ten miles into Wickenburg for groceries and restaurants. We would definitely stay again.

Price reflects Passport America discount. This was our second stay, and the manager was wearing more than shorts (probably because it was cold outside). We were asked about pets and told them we had two dogs, and it was no problem. There was even a sign directing us to a "pet walk". We had a pull through site with cable TV for one night and walked to Denny's for our 10% discount on dinner. Everything was "cash" -- even the fairly good deal on propane. We will stay again.

Price reflects weekly rate. Although it was not perfect, this park had the best Wi-Fi signal we have encountered in quite some time. Streets are paved and sites are wide and grassy with stone or concrete patios. Staff was friendly and attentive. We enjoyed the walking trail but our dogs found numerous sand burrs in the dog park. We discussed this with the owner, and he is looking into a fix. It was nice to have trash picked up at the curb on your site. Access is easy off of I-75, but it is a trip for groceries. Nice park and we will definitely stay again.

Price reflects monthly rate. This is a huge park approximately half park models and half camp sites (so the total number of units is probably double the stated 600) with paved narrow roads and either crushed shell or grass sites with concrete patios. There are lots of one-way streets. We left just prior to the opening of their multi million dollar indoor pool and wellness center. The park has tons of activities for the kids, lots of golf carts, bicycles, skate boards and motorized scooters and bikes. Recycling is required, and there are two off-leash areas and baths for the dogs. Access from I-75 is convenient. The Wi-Fi was continually up and down with strict rules of use, i.e. no downloads, etc. We did not eat at either of the restaurants. The park is a little too kid-friendly for our personal enjoyment but we would definitely return.

This was our second stay. Nice park with long concrete pull through sites. Nice landscaping and paved roads with nice landscaping.

Cash price paid at valet parking just inside casino doors to the right. This was a good overnight stop with easy off/on. Our Verizon signal was very weak and slow.

Sites have wooden deck, picnic table and fire ring. Some of the pull through sites seemed a little tight. There was lots of shade but it's satellite friendly, too. Park was nicely decorated for Halloween and our pups loved the two off-leash dog areas. We will definitely return.

We stayed one night with terrible wind and rain storms so were unable to take advantage of the amenities. Sites are gravel with a picnic table and portable fire pit. Staff was very helpful when our slide refused to retract with a referral and allowing us to stay past check-out to get it in. CG seems to be family owned and operated. I did call just after 10:30 p.m. as we lost the Wi-Fi password and there was no answer or no machine so I had to wait until morning for access. There is a motel, indoor pool, mini golf, etc. and a gorgeous view of Lake Michigan across the road.

This was our second visit to this beautifully manicured park with paved roads and concrete sites with grass between them. Fire pits and picnic tables are located at each site and many are front-in w/lake views on several ponds in the gently tiered park. We are 40' in length and had to pull to the very front of the concrete so our electrical cord would reach. This meant that our steps were over the grass which was not ideal. There was highway noise on the lower level which does not bother us. Wi-Fi was down during our visit and dog run trash receptacle was unattended and overflowing, otherwise it's a 10. Lots of activities and a good blend of people. Staff is nice and helpful. Shopping is a distance. We would definitely stay again even though we feel it is overpriced.

Beautiful Kane County park with maximum stay of two weeks. Sites and roads are asphalt with some primitive grass sites for tents. Nice wide sites with grass in between them and some are not very level. There are also a few long pull thru sites. Newer section has flush toilets but there are no showers apparently on the premises. The older section has more shade trees and nicer grass. There are two dump stations. Sites available on first-come, first-served basis with no reservations. It fills up with lots of activity during the weekend, but fairly quiet during the week. Lots of walking and horse trails with a small public access pond. Camp host was very nice. We will stay again.

Staff was nice and helpful. We stayed on a concrete slab between grass because the shaded grass sites were soft due to heavy rains. Our site was on the end and rather long and wide, but other sites appeared cramped with little to no parking for a vehicle. Did not see the lake or the pool but the miniature golf area looked very nice. Verizon MiFi was very weak and we were unable to connect to the camp Wi-Fi. Appeared to be lots of long term folks but overall appearance did not seem to be compromised. We would probably not stay again unless we were sure we could get internet service.

Price reflects FMCA discount. We have been regulars here for years and it has become increasingly difficult to get a site during summer months. We were unable to stay a full week due to the weekends being filled up. They have apparently added some new rules this season, and most of which are not being enforced. Including no clotheslines (although there was a pop-up camper with one tied off to a tree), NO ALCOHOL on the premises (which our neighbors were blatantly drinking beer outdoors in daylight), no washing of vehicles at sites (it was happening). We also saw lots of barking dogs (one of which appeared to be a Pit Bull) left unattended outside rigs and inside them. There appeared to be lots of long term folks although policy indicates 7 day maximum stay. So, after only four days, we were forced to move 45 minutes away to the closest park that could accommodate a big rig despite both of us being sick and caring for a sick dog. If you disseminate rules, please enforce them because there are still a few folks that actually read rules and try to be considerate guests. We will definitely give this beautiful park another chance but it could be our last.

Price reflects VK discount for a satellite-friendly, gravel pull through site. There is highway noise from I-90 but easy access from the interstate. Pool was nice and there were shaded and open sites. The K-9 off-leash area was fairly large compared to other KOA's. Clean and well kept but the price seemed really steep. We would stay again if necessary, but would probably shop for a better value.

Price includes weekly and/or Good Sam discount and extra charges for an end site. Our first site was narrow with our awning nearly touching the neighbors'. We had to back out to keep from scraping on the trees. The second site we paid extra for an end site and another rig bumped our ladder making the turn. I found the park to make poor and ineffective use of the space they own (with an unnecessarily huge dog area and the front row sites are twice as log as necessary). The pool closed in July at 7 p.m., which was disappointing. Staff and owners were very nice and helpful. If we stay again we will pay extra for a premium front row site.

When I called I had requested a 50 amp full hook up. The available options were a concrete site w/30 amp or a 50 amp in the grass. I was told we could pig-tail a 20 to make a 50, which we could not even try since when we arrived we were told it was grounded. Since admittedly several people had been stuck due to heavy rains, we opted to go with the 30 amp concrete site, maneuvering in under a low branch. We immediately reported apparent problems with the ground fault tripping and cutting off our electricity. This was on a Wednesday early afternoon. It was not that hot until Friday when it was sweltering over 90 degrees and I could not even turn on the microwave, let alone one of the air conditioners. I believe someone should have come out to repair it before then. Camp was filling up for the weekend so they allowed us to run our generator after we tried to struggle through it. Meanwhile a new occupant in the site next to us experienced a similar problem. Staff was nice and friendly but did not seem to comprehend the discomfort and concern caused by obvious electrical problems. (At first they were blaming our rig since "only a couple of other people" had experienced similar problems). There are numerous trash barrels that are uncovered and so the birds and critters spread trash all around the yard at night. Beautiful park but there are also some low branches. We will not likely stay again.

Not at all convenient to shopping. This was our second visit and we would stay again.

Price reflects average of PA discount and weekend rates. We stayed nine days. Customer service is superior! We were caught off guard with a road closure (they have re-routed the service road a block or so to the north) and a staff member actually came out to direct us into the park -- amazing! For the size of this park we found no dog residue -as courtesy among guests apparently prevails here. Also the staff/owner worked very hard to accommodate our needs over a pretty much booked weekend. Although we don't normally make use of the restrooms we encountered a problem with our hot water heater and found them to be immaculate. It looks like they have plans for expansion and have upgraded a few concrete pads, although most are gravel. We will absolutely, positively stay here again!

Rate is weekday off-season. Lovely park with concrete pads. The hook ups were located perfectly for our Class A. Each site has a trash receptacle, grill and picnic table. I agree there should be a fence around the perimeter to add a little security. It might also help somewhat with the road noise. Very close to the amusement park and rides so there is noise from that also, and lots of kids in the park. We were given no rules and some cars were moving awfully fast through the paved areas. I was impressed by the nice pool, given the proximity to the water park, but it was not open yet early May. We would definitely stay again.

This is a Jackson County park so maximum stay is 14 days. Seniors save $2 per day on the rate. Park is gated and we saw it patrolled by park rangers and Lee's Summit police. Streets are paved and sites are the larger gravel which we do not care for much. I'm not sure if the camp hosts or their computers are slow on check in, and customer service could use improvement. There are lots of tent and smaller sites but not an abundance for bigger ones and even fewer that are satellite friendly. The back-up tire spikes seemed a bit extreme for a park basically within a suburban area. We would stay again.

Another delightful routine visit for us. We endured a lot of cold, rain and wind, but otherwise uneventful. Seems like the grass was not mowed as in past visits but the park had just opened for the season. Sewer drains are placed a bit too high to drain well.

Price reflects Silver Oasis discount. We stay here regularly when traveling along I-40 and noticed the 20% jump in price. They still offer the stay two nights and get a third for free. Our last encounter in November we had a slight problem with our gray tank valve and called the on-site service. The tech was going to order a part but ended up getting it dislodged and in probably 10 minutes or less then presented us with a bill for $100 -- way out of line in our opinion since they are right on site -- so beware the service call charges before you ask for help. I have also had it with the RUDE dog owners who fail to pick up and park management that tolerates it.

Park has recently installed sewer connections. We stayed one night and signed up for player cards at the casino which gave us vouchers for $10 fuel each. So we payed $10 for a 50 amp FHU site and received $20 towards our fill. And so why would I complain that the sites were a little bumpy and tight? Super deal for an overnight. The turn in for the RV park is just beyond the casino to the south. We self-registered as a late check-in, but the folks in the morning were extremely helpful and nice.

Price reflects Good Sam discount. Park was temporarily closing the day we planned to leave, for maintenance/repairs. Level gravel site with sewer too far to the rear as other campers have described. I can see how it could be muddy, and the wind kicked up and blew the sand/dust. It is still a nice campground with security present. We would not hesitate to stay again. Lunch prices are in effect at the casino buffet until 4:45 p.m. and they do offer a senior discount.

This is one of the better parks we have encountered after three plus years on the road. Park is very conveniently located on the west side of Amarillo and off I-40 but far enough from the road that it is not noisy. Love's located right at the exit. If you absolutely need shade and a picnic table this is not the place for you. But the long wide sites are truly big-rig friendly with room to spread out. There is a nice grassy area for dogs. We stayed two nights and got the third night free, which is quite a good deal in our opinion. Pool and spa area are beautiful, although it looks like some unsupervised kids have ruined the nice furniture in the clubhouse. We did not try the meals or pizza on premise nor the WiFi. Also, the individual restrooms look like a great concept, but we are self contained. We would definitely stay again.

Campground does not accept credit cards. Payment is by cash or check. We're 12'9" high and were assigned the last site #17 where we were unable to clear the power lines so we had to move over one where we could clear. However, they are in the process of putting all utilities under ground, so these should be removed in the future. Gravel sites with trees and shade. We did smell some manure, but would stay again.

Nice park setting with a small "reclaimed water" lake and golf course. Utilities are oddly located. Pay at the Bentwood Golf Club building. Paved streets and concrete pads with picnic tables and benches. There is a playground for the kids, nice walking trails and some picnic shelters. Park is somewhat isolated from town and after dark the teens began driving through playing music with the bass cranked up. Also some younger kids were out fairly late on a school night. Although we did see police driving through frequently, we felt somewhat vulnerable despite fairly good lighting. The other RV park we saw on Hwy. 160 appeared very dusty and close to the road so this looked to be a better option. We probably would not stay again.

Price reflects VK discount for 50 amp FHU site. As previous reviewers stated park has tight short gravel sites. We complained about low branches and were told the guy who normally trims them did not come this year. Staff was very friendly. The dog area was weeds and dirt full of grasshoppers. I walked our dog to Wal-Mart at night for fear of snakes and saw one on the street. We did not try the cable or Wi-Fi but they say they have 57 channels on cable. I think we'll avoid this one in the future unless absolutely necessary.

Price reflects weekly rate. Newer park with paved roads and gravel sites. Ours was a little soft on one side but nice space between neighbors. Campground is tiered and we stayed on the upper level with a view of Garden of the Gods and the city lights at night. There are cables running all over the ground. High desert means lots of weeds and little grass, but there were also some pretty wildflowers. They have mowed nevertheless. We came in one evening and five deer were grazing across from the office. I do not believe there are restrooms or showers, (but they are still making improvements) so you would need to be self-contained. Very friendly owner/manager and very conveniently located. We would stay again.

Price reflects Good Sam discount with an extra charge for a dog and 50 amp. This campground is very busy! We had to move once during our two week stay to accommodate a site-specific reservation although the policy on the website states you are unable to choose your sites. There are few back-in sites for bigger rigs. The interior pull-through sites are "buddy" sites, which means you share a lawn with another camper, (i.e. two picnic tables, etc.). On the other side, you are very close to the next rig. The park is clean and well maintained. The park is loaded with rabbits, and nearly every evening we smelled skunk. Trash is picked up at your site between 8 and 10 a.m. The pool, restrooms, laundry and clubhouse were very nice. I was disappointed the fitness room had no treadmill. We found it pricey considering the tight sites and no cable. We would probably look for something less expensive next time, but would stay again if necessary.

Sites are a little tight but long, level pull through solid gravel/sand. We had good Verizon signal and satellite access. Did not try their WiFi. We would definitely stay again.

Price includes a cash discount. This park is convenient to I-80 with go carts, etc. for kid's and is a popular overnight stop apparently as well. We felt somewhat crowded here with a number of campers parking a unit and two pick ups on one site and the somewhat narrow internal gravel roadways. Our neighbor had to back out of his pull through. The dog area really needed a mowing. We were told we could receive satellite on our site but could not, although there is good cable TV and shade. We would stay again. Verizon was good.

Free overnight stay is allowed at this park just north of the offices while having work on Blue Ox tow equipment. No restrooms or amenities to speak of, but they will reserve a spot and come out and inspect your equipment on site. The sites are clean, mostly gravel, (although two were concrete), wide and grassy, with full hook ups which are situated for front in motor homes. Very quiet setting with maturing trees and a convenient trash receptacle. Not many restaurants to choose from in town, so be prepared. Verizon signal and satellite are good. We appreciated the hospitality and would definitely stay again.

This is a gravel parking lot with a dump station. Sites are 30 amp water & electric. Self register for parking and/or dumping. Looks like there may be portable toilets, but no restrooms, so mostly self-contained units. Park was clean and good for an overnight with lots of grassy areas around the perimeter. There had been lots of rain but the ground was fairly solid. No frills but a terrific deal.

This is a nice gated campground in a wooded setting. Many shaded sites can make satellite reception difficult. A few of the sites have a lake view. Sites are large gravel with paved streets. A small playground for the kids and a volleyball net, otherwise not much else to do. It's an easy walk to the lake for fishing and/or boating. We stay regularly and will stay again.

Price reflects Good Sam discount. Campground is no frills, gravel, with grass between fairly narrow but level sites. We visited following heavy rains and were bothered with mosquitoes. A few sites are satellite friendly. We received a good Verizon signal and were not too bothered by highway noise even though it has very good access and proximity to I-35. The campground is being offered by sale at the time of our visit. We will consider staying again.

Price reflects FMCA discount. Streets are paved, has concrete sites. We visit this campground frequently and will surely visit again. Restrooms require a refundable deposit for a card. Security is through frequently. Entire facility is well maintained. It would be nice if there was a pool, but there are a number of things to do with the casino, etc.

Price reflects Good Sam discount. Long gravel sites with wide grassy areas between. We got a good Verizon signal and satellite access since trees are not mature. Owners are very nice. Lots of little extras and the park is very clean. There is a junk yard next door and some older, semi-permanent campers. The playground looked very nice, and there were paddle boats on the pond. There are not many full hook up sites. Our site had a slight uphill drain to the sewer. Garmin incorrectly advised a westerly turn off of I-380, but it indeed is on the eastern access road. We would certainly stay again.

We were unable to stay but briefly due to extreme rainfalls, so unsure the actual pricing. Garmin incorrectly wanted us to make a left turn on Acer which is actually a right turn. If you watch for the fairgrounds sign you should be okay. Trees at the entrance were a bit tight for a big rig. Close to town and not far from Hwy. 20. Grass sites with a very limited number of FHU's but they get afternoon shade. Extreme rains made the ground too soft for our big rig but others were there without problems. Local roads were being closed due to flooding. There are lots of primitive sites as well, but we did not get a price. Under normal conditions we would stay again.

It was our second stay at this campground. Credit cards are not accepted, but they will accept cash or check. One of the previous reviewers seemed to be rating a different campground. Sites are grass, and fairly level. Roads are mostly dirt/gravel with some asphalt at the entry. Manager is nice and escorted us to the site. There is some highway noise. Many sites have lake views. I did not see a pool or concrete sites. There are no frills and it's a bit dark at night. We would stay again.

This was our second stay in the park. We like the convenience to restaurants, shopping, interstate access, paved streets and partially paved sites. Management was nice and helpful.

This is a smaller park with lots for the kids to do. Roads are gravel, and we had lots of dust until it rained a little. Our site was level with trees, but we still were able to get satellite reception from our dome. There is highway noise, and Garmin GPS attempts to bring you in and out the back way, so follow the directions from the website. There is a small off leash dog area, mini-golf, outdoor movies, fishing lake, pool, store, game room, etc. and we had lots of tenters during our stay. I did find a larger public off-leash dog park within a few miles called Hill's Bark Park. The owners are very helpful and maintain long hours with the office open between 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. We would stay again.

Previously Pleasant View, this park has been converted to a KOA. Easy access and far enough off the interstate that there is no noise, however there is an occasional train. Park has a very high percentage of permanent/weekend folks. As another reviewer mentioned, there are lots and lots of golf carts and visitor parking is at the farthest end. The short term sites have very little grass, are dusty and fairly tight. There are lots of activities for the kids. We stayed during the holiday weekend and there was lots of entertainment for the adults as well. The computer system seemed to be overwhelmed by the crowds, so service at the counter was slow but friendly. Verizon signal was not fast but satisfactory. I was impressed that they were so well prepared for the amount of trash for the number of people they accommodated for the holiday. We would stay again.

Price includes VK discount. It was our second stay at this park. Some roads are paved towards the entrance, but most are gravel. Staff and management was nice and helpful. Trash and recycling is picked up at your site. We stayed following lots of rain and our site was soft with puddles. We put down boards beneath the jacks which we have used for over a year and the ground was so soft it broke them. Staff immediately brought out more rock and boards to assist, although I'm not sure why we were not relocated to a different site, as there appeared to be lots available. Nice swimming and fishing lakes and there is an off leash dog area. CG is not far from I-80, the entrance is gated and there are lots of shops and restaurants nearby. We would definitely stay again.

This is a lovely campground in a wooded area adjacent to the interstate. There is highway noise. Sites are generous, mostly gravel and grass/dirt. There is a beautiful indoor pool. We seem to have stayed following a busy weekend and while they were working on the roads and other maintenance. So, when walking we had to beware of fresh tar. Previous guest left a large oily mess on the lawn and the grass really was overdue for a mowing. It was a little disturbing to look out open windows to see a tank of chemical being sprayed on the gravel sites next to us while we had our fans running. As previously noted, we had to walk nearly a mile either direction to dispose of dog waste and/or trash, as dumpsters are few and far between. Office hours Mon.-Thurs. are 11-4. There are lots of unoccupied rigs parked here. We had a good Verizon signal and managed to get a site with satellite access. We would stay again.

Price reflects a weekly rate. We had a long level, gravel pull through site with grass between sites. Had a good Verizon signal. Cable TV worked well but we did not try the WiFi. Lots of seasonals/long term folks with well maintained sites, however they apparently need a refresher course on the few rules, i.e. directional signs, speed limits, dog leash requirements, etc., imposed by the campground. Staff is friendly. Has a nice pond, playground and shelter. There is some highway noise. Our dissatisfaction with this park has far more to do with disrespectful neighbors (a long line of them) who allowed their dog to do his business next to our fire ring without picking it up; sat on our picnic table dripping ice cream and then throwing nearly an entire cone into the fire ring while we were inside our coach looking out the window; allowing their loose pit bull to approach while our dog was leashed; parking on the grass in our site although there were empty spaces all around them. And then there were the rude people who occupied our site previously and left trash and cigarette butts in the fire ring for us. Lots of rain made some puddles and bumps in the road and there are some low branches around if you're a big rig. We will stay again and hopefully have better luck with respectful neighbors.

This is a small campground at I-75 and Hwy. 80 adjacent to the motel. The pool is just getting ready to open. Sites are gravel with grass between and fairly wide with picnic tables. We did not use the cable TV or WiFi but our Verizon card and satellite worked well. Some low trees at a couple of the sites need to be trimmed. Register at the motel office 24/7. We enjoyed the Shiloh Steakhouse and Cracker Barrel, and there were numerous fast foods within walking distance. Highway noise is just going to happen, so we ran the a/c's. We would stay again.

Price is for a pull through site with furnished concrete patio including VK discount. Extremely nice owners have added lots of extras to make this a great park. As previously reported, there are paddle boats, miniature golf, giant outdoor chess set, a tremendous off leash area for dogs and rides on an all-terrain type vehicle. We were in a premium site and unable to reach the satellite for branches, but campground provided a good cable TV selection. A little more attention could have been paid to trimming some low branches and mowing, but we enjoyed the park and would definitely return.

This is the best KOA we have encountered in three years on the road. Two negatives -- 1) we could not get satellite reception for the trees (but they do provide cable) and 2) interstate highway noise. We found the negatives were far outweighed the many extras offered by this neat and clean park including beautiful potted flowers and ferns generously distributed (even a geranium on every picnic table), outdoor bowling, tether ball, catch and release fishing, very nice play area for the kids, fountains, slides and shaded tables in the pool area, basketball goal, off-leash Kamp K-9, to name a few. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend it.

This is an older KOA in good repair. The roads are rock and narrow with some bumps. The sites are rock also with some patchy grass between and picnic tables. Price reflects VK discount.

Rate is weekly. Eastbound on Hwy. 78 (Stone Mountain Highway) you will need to pass the park and turn around at Lowe's on your left one or two blocks down. Park has a pool which appeared to be just about to open. Lots of long term folks and spacious sites with trees, grass and concrete patios. Roads are paved asphalt, and sites are gravel. I do not believe there were restrooms as it is predominantly a mobile home park. We ran our a/c units continually and had no problems whatsoever with the power. I can't say enough about the friendliness of the other residents/guests and staff. We would stay again if in the area.

The owner/manager is super, super nice! Park was full and we were expecting to park in the overflow section but he moved his rig and allowed us to have a concrete patio and grass at no extra charge and without prompting on our part. As previously noted business hours are 1-5 Mon. thru Fri. and they do not accept credit cards. Park has sand and gravel roads in an older mobile home park which is being converted for RV's. The newer RV sites have nice grass which appears to be irrigated, concrete patios and nice picnic tables. The sand was something of an annoyance, and some older units were something of an eyesore, but we would not hesitate to stay again.

Park name is in the process of being changed to Nascar. Very nice campground with paved streets and sites in the short term area and wider grass sites for longer term folks. The paved sites are narrow. I felt it was a little expensive but very convenient to I-75. We got good Verizon and satellite signal. I disliked the manner in which they charge the full amount on your credit card upon reservation. We saw alligators near the wet areas around the periphery of the park, and one very near the pet walk - so beware! We would definitely stay again.

Price reflects 10% FMCA discount. This was our second visit. Roads and sites are gravel/dirt with grass between, and picnic tables. The park slopes away from highway so the overnight sites at the bottom of the hill are somewhat protected from highway noise. Staff is extremely nice (i.e. as I was approaching the trash bins a worker jumped off the golf cart to lift the lid for me). There's lots of grass but it looks to be somewhat infested with ant hills. Some folks may be bothered by the noise of large domestic birds, goats, donkeys, etc. on site, but we ran our air continually and were not bothered as they quiet down at night. Very extensive cable TV selection although we were unable to lock in on the satellite due to shade trees. Escorted to your site and quick to help if you need assistance. We would definitely stay again.

Roads are dirt and grass but well maintained. Good signage into the park. We spent two very quiet nights here. There is shade on the east and west perimeter, so there is lots of sun also.

We enjoyed good satellite and Verizon reception. Park has two nice dog areas and a walking trail. Pool was not yet open for the season, but looked to be a decent size. Very convenient to I-75 with little highway noise. We found our stay very pleasant and would surely stay again.

This is an older campground with tight gravel sites and roads. Some have 50 amp and some have concrete patios. Satellite can be difficult with lots of trees. We had significant ruts at our pull through site and lots of standing water and mud with rains. On the plus side, service technicians will come to your site and pick up your coach for repairs if you choose to go out instead of waiting. We would stay again, although $24.50 with President's Club discount seems pretty steep, especially when you are here for service and signs indicate no overnight parking in the Camping World lot.

Price paid was for a pull-through site. The owners are super nice and working very hard to make this a great campground. There are lots of working sites but there is still lots of construction. Nice playground for the kids with a creek and pond. From the map it appeared this campground was right in town but it is several miles out with some significant hills. Sites and roads are gravel in good repair. Lots of shade trees so we got satellite by the skin of our teeth with a prayer after lots of adjustment. Verizon signal was strong. We would probably not camp here again, but only because it was farther out than expected and not our idea of "big rig friendly". Our dog had difficulty taking care of his business with no grass around, but then he's very picky.

Great river views with some interesting barge traffic! There are shady and sunny spots. We received good Verizon and satellite signals. There were some folks that just were not into common courtesies, like leaving peanut shells, dog droppings, etc., and grossly violating the posted speed limit. We had the breaker trip on our 50 amp for no apparent reason once. And, as mentioned before, the sewer hook ups are not conveniently located. Overall a beautiful and quiet location and a great deal for the price. We would definitely camp here again.

Trees were small but in bloom when we stayed. Park was nearly full with many long term folks. Quite a few of them did not seem to know campground etiquette, i.e. cutting through our site and not picking up after their dogs.

Roads are dirt and gravel. Sites are dirt and grass. We had a large pull through which did not receive 50 amp service without a wire across the coach. Lake view was very nice with lots of geese. It was very dusty and could be muddy with rain. The roads in and out were very bumpy and the hook-ups looked rather outdated with dangling wrap, etc. Some large dogs were running loose. No problems with satellite or Verizon signals. The owner was very friendly and accommodating. The park was fairly empty when we stayed but you will want to check the website for the bargain shopping weekends (usually the second or third weekend of the month) which will attract large crowds and affect availability.

We camped here in late October due to business in Waller. The price we were charged for two retirees who used NONE of the few amenities which were open during the week for the three days we stayed included a $7 per day per person "amenities charge". This is absolutely LUDICROUS and probably the reason there were less than a handful of non-workampers staying at this park. When we arrived on a Sunday afternoon there were four workampers visiting in the office and two on golf carts within 20 feet of our rig visiting, and we were left to our own accord to find our site. Then there were the low branches we had to dodge to get to it. While walking the dog I waved at one workamper on a cart who looked right at me and did not respond. Rude people and rude policies seemed to prevail. Very dark at night. We will not return.

Rate reflects weekly rate. This is a nice park still making improvements/additions. We found the staff extremely friendly. I cannot with a clear conscience say it is "big rig friendly". Chinaberry Road is narrow with low branches and there were low branches inside the park. Sites are concrete, some with concrete patios. There are several ponds but we did not fish. We had Verizon signal problems both with our cellular and our internet connection. The Wi-Fi in the park was difficult to find and we were never able to connect to it. There is a sulfur smell related to a plant of some sort next door. Beautiful clubhouse but the pool was closed in late September when we stayed. We would stay again if we did not need cellular and if there was not something more big rig friendly and convenient.

Price reflects a weekly rate. I'm rating this park a 6 because I liked the owners/staff. There are numerous dead trees taller than our motor home with branches gone and bark falling off. The sites are very tight, although they were considerate enough not to park anyone next to us. Many permanent/long-term folks with some noisy dogs. Lots of street noise from Hwy. 75 on the west side of the park and train noise, and then there is the exodus noise of long term folks going to work in the mornings. There was lots of standing water with the rain, and overgrown weeds in the grassy areas. They pick up your trash in the mornings. Better than dry camping, but not much. Very dark at night. Biggest positive was technicians from nearby RV repair came and worked on some of our problems. Would stay again if we needed to be in the area since there is not much else around.

Price reflects a Good Sam discount. Staff is helpful and nice. They even start up the grills every day at 5 pm and invite you to take your meat over and cook it at one of the shelters. It's very convenient, just up the road from the Eureka Springs Great Passion Play, and a short walk to mass if you're Catholic. We had a great view of the hills and valleys. The gravel sites were a bit tight, and if there are two rigs in front of you at check-in you will have difficulty getting off the street. There are some low branches to beware of. When we got ready to leave there was quite a bit of traffic so we had to get outside the park to hook up the toad. We encountered difficulty with our Verizon cellular signal but our internet card worked fine. We would stay again if we could not find another park where our Verizon worked in the area. The long drive into the area from east or west has steep hills and tight curves but worth the trip.

This was a nice campground. We were given the site right next to the office since we specifically requested satellite TV from our dome. This site was too tight to get out our awning, and we could barely walk between the slide and the bush on the passenger side. We considered ourselves lucky to have satellite. Road beyond park has a low branch. Campground roads and sites are gravel. Staff was very nice. I'm personally a little suspicious of the number of reviews for this park: especially first time and second time reviewers. (And I have reviewed and read lots of them). Located close to interstate, restaurants and shopping. We would stay again.

Although there were several here: we did not find this park to be "big rig friendly". The trees at our site (and throughout the park for that matter) had large black spots all over them and were touching the top of the slides when we put them out. We asked for the trees to be trimmed and they could not get to it until the following day when it was raining. We needed the awning out but were unable, to do so. It was actually the second day before they trimmed the trees. Due to some very tight turns: we scratched our coach on a bush which had been previously trimmed leaving sharp points on the side. Our cable TV was not working so we shared with a neighbor who had a splitter. The owners' five white dogs are beyond noisy; and the front side of the campground gets highway noise. The pool was tiny. There are indeed some unsightly permanent sites and stored units. We will not return unless it is absolutely unavoidable.

Price includes our Value Kard discount, so it seems overpriced but everything is brand new as it's only five months old and has wide, level, gravel sites. Lots of tall shade trees and we were lucky enough to get a satellite TV signal from our dome, but the back-in sites at the end of the park may have a better chance. We did not try the Wi-Fi. Owners are delightful and this park is still under improvement. It's very quiet and convenient to Bluffton businesses and about 13 miles off of I-69.

This is a beautiful, well planned and well managed resort. Staff is super friendly. There was a good blend of retirees and families with kids, and some folks seemed to be here for the long haul. Restrictions exist on length and age of rigs, so check their website before you arrive. Security gated with easy access off Highway 131. Very nice check-in area and the park has asphalt streets with concrete pads. Many sites have a lake view and all have fire rings and picnic tables. The utilities are oddly placed, so make sure you have plenty of cord and hose to reach. The ponds have fountains, and there were some beautiful swans visiting. It's a large park but does not feel crowded. We would definitely stay again although it is probably overpriced.

I would not recommend visiting this campground with a dog or children. It seems the comfort of the owner’s huge, out-of-control black Lab is paramount. We are dog owners and dog lovers traveling with a puppy. I didn’t complain about having to pick up after his dog so we didn’t step in it outside our door. I didn’t complain about its obnoxious barking and rearing up on people. But when my husband went to inquire if we could stay another two days to take care of business in the area, the dog aggressively rolled our puppy (which was leashed and exhibiting signs he was happy to see another dog) twice onto his back and my husband pulled the growling dog, (almost three times the size of ours) off of him. Dogs misbehave. Our dog wasn’t hurt. And we got over it. But one would expect the owner to correct the misbehavior and apologize to his paying guests. Rather, he became ridiculously irrational and took every opportunity to continue to insult us and our dog, and insisted upon making excuses for this inappropriate behavior. It became evident we were suddenly not welcome at the park, but we finished our stay because he did not want to refund the days we had already paid for. I would have rated this park a 7, but the owner’s bizarre statements and actions honestly frightened me. We will never return.

Nice wide concrete sites with paved roads and grass between. Park has a convenient dump station as there are no sewer hook ups. Pull through sites for the most part are not shaded but several other sites are. There is good security but we did not see a casino shuttle. There is a water park next door for the kids. The weekends get crowded but it's fairly quiet during the week. We got a good Verizon signal and satellite TV dome access. It appears the cable wire is not working. Restrooms and laundry were clean. GPS did not seem to recognize Empress Drive and wanted to send us further out on I-80 than necessary. We would camp here again.

Nice, wide, level shaded gravel sites with grass and trees between. We had good Verizon and satellite signal from our dome. We were there during the week and it was very quiet. Sites 1-13 are first come, first serve self check-in. No sewers and some sites have water and 50 amp service, but there is a convenient dump station. Host is in site #75. NOTE: (We were advised to get to Michna Road from 6 Mile Rd. and that the guides are incorrect that there is NO access from 7 Mile Rd.) There are playgrounds for the children. Roads are asphalt. We stayed two nights and would have liked to have stayed longer.

A very convenient park to the interstate but does have some highway noise. There are also a factory and an airport nearby that contributes some noise. The sites are gravel/dirt and level. Some sights were tight. Although there were other 50 amp sites available they frequently parked someone on our narrow side so we could barely get out our awning. With the windows open or while outdoors we occasionally smelled manure. There are lots of tenters on the weekends. The Verizon signal was good. A nice park though and well maintained. We would stay again.

Price reflects Passport America discount for two of three nights including tax. This is a nice overnight stop convenient to I-74 and Bloomington/Normal. The sites are level with loose gravel and some dirt and grass sites. Part of the roads are paved. Nice pool and dog walk areas. We were situated on the end near the highway (where the 50 amp hook ups are) so we had quite a bit of highway noise, but there are numerous sites further away. Owners were friendly and pick up trash at your site if you bag and put it out. We got good Verizon signal and satellite off our dome. We would stay again.

The rate is Passport America for a back in site with 50 amp and air conditioning surcharges. Sites are fairly wide, some with concrete pads. Roads appear to be asphalt and gravel. There is a swimming beach on one of the lakes and lots of open grassy area. Verizon signal was strong. We had intermittent low water pressure. Campground is just outside of Bushnell but fairly remote. Very quiet atmosphere when we were there. Laundry area appeared run down. We would stay again if in the area.

The price paid was $3 more for a holiday weekend. It included a ticket for buy one, get one free breakfast and use of the paddle boats for a full hook up 50 amp back-in site. Big rigs are doable but Crazy Horse Road is pretty narrow getting out to the campground. Although this park was our worse nightmare, as our Verizon phones and cell card did not get a signal and our satellite dome was under a tree and we were here for work purposes, we quickly discovered once we resigned ourselves to the loss of modern technologies that the staff was exceptionally nice and helpful and the folks were friendly. There were many "regulars" who lived within a few miles of the campground and come out for the weekend. There is a swimming beach and fishing, lots of activities -- there was a Fourth of July parade and Bingo, a nice playground and game room. It's a little far off the beaten path, but would make a nice weekend getaway with the kids or away from the phones, internet and TV.

This is our campground of choice while in the Twin Cities area. Although it is not as convenient as some of the others we find it clean, secure and friendly. Nice level concrete sites and paved roads with shade trees, picnic tables, fire rings, and barbeque grills with the casino within walking distance (although they have shuttles). We probably would not care for the side-by-side pull thru sites, but the back in sites are very nicely spaced. Price is two days weekend rate with a $5/off coupon for one weekday night. We will definitely stay again.

The park has level concrete pull thru sites with picnic tables on concrete patios and grass between sites. It is an easy off/on for I-35. They do not take reservations and you pay at the valet parking area near the casino. There are some tight turns with concrete barriers, so use caution getting to your site. The grassy areas were very soft due to heavy rains, resulting in lots of grooves/mud next to the concrete where rigs have missed the pavement. There were also a large rut or two in the roads. We had no problem with the breakfast buffet and enjoyed the friendly attitude of the staff. Some folks were enjoying the fishing lake adjacent to the park. We will stay again.

The park has narrow dirt/gravel roads with concrete pads on some sites. We found it a bit challenging for a big rig, but doable. There were some low branches and the roads were soft with ruts due to recent heavy rains. There are lake views and a nice lake within walking distance as well as a petting zoo. Satellite reception could be a problem with the abundance of mature trees, but we got a signal off our dome and good reception on our Verizon Internet connection but did not try the WiFi. We would stay again if in the area.

WE DID NOT STAY AT THIS PARK. We drove in after following the above link to the website which quoted 50 amp service at $19.50/night to find they do not have 50 amp and we would be charged $25/night plus tax to use two 30s. When I questioned about the 50 amp I was told they were "mislead" into believing they could use a pigtail but it did not work. I explained my resource for the misinformation, was asked to present it, and was told to let it be a lesson not to believe everything I see online. There was a Good Sam decal on the door but they also do not accept GS discounts. After driving way out of our way, the owners failed to accept our offer of $20, so we left finding their attitude leaving a lot to be desired. Sites are level and across from a park, but we certainly will not return.

This was our second visit to this campground since we have family in the immediate area. Lots of smaller tent sites and some back-in and pull through sites which are larger. There is a picnic pavillion, volleyball net, and not much more. A few of the sites have shade and/or a lake view. There is fishing, boating, walking trails, etc., all within approximately a quarter to half mile. The sites are roomy but all are not level. We watched deer out the front window in the evenings. Our Verizon internet connection was slow but working. The weekends bring lots of tenters, but it's fairly empty during the week. The camp hosts were extremely helpful. The campground is gated. We will camp here again.

This is a nice newer park with concrete streets and long, level concrete sites. There is nice spacing, good angles, and nice grass between. We were escorted to our site and shown how to work the water. The dog area, pool and playground are also very nice. We had bad weather but did not use the storm shelter. The down side to this park was the many long term campers, that in many cases occupy the more desirable end sites in units over 15 years old. There were cats running loose under our car and jumping into our bays. One site had a camper, a trailer, two cars, three motorcycles, and a satellite dish with concrete blocks and other misc. items crowded into one space. Several sites had 2-3 vehicles in addition to the camper. I observed one semi-permanent guest not picking up after her dog in the dog area where a scoop and bags are provided. I recognize times are tough with the economy, but maybe grouping the long term guests in one area of the park would be helpful. We would return in the hopes some of the above problems will have been rectified.

The rate reflects a Golden Age Passport 50% discount. This is an Army Corps of Engineers lake with two different campgrounds. About half the sites have 50 amp service. There are no sewer hook ups but dump stations are available. There are boat ramps and docks. Many of the sites have grills and covered picnic tables and fire rings with shade trees. We had some difficulty maneuvering to get satellite signal from our dome but Verizon cell card and phones worked well. Most of the sites have lake access and are somewhat level. It was very quiet during the week but fills up on weekends. Nicely spaced sites with a playground, amphitheater, picnic shelter, swimming area and group camping area. There is also a nature trail. Some branches need a trim. We will definitely stay again if in the area.

Enter the fairgrounds at 20th and Poplar. Follow the paved road to the left and all the way to the north end of the fairgrounds. Payment envelopes and after hours information flyers are available near the restrooms. The streets are paved. The sites are level grass/dirt and there are quite a few handicapped spaces which had concrete patios and sidewalks. We had no one beside us, but it seemed like sites could have been tight with neighbors and slides/awnings. No frills park, but very convenient to Hutchinson and the surrounding areas. We would stay again.

We have typically avoided mobile home parks in the past, but due to convenience to business in the area, we decided to give it a try. The park appears to have been established in the 1960's and some areas are somewhat in disrepair, but the new owners are working hard to make improvements. We found the owners very attentive to our needs when we experienced an electrical problem, they were right on top of it and made the necessary repair. The sites are spacious with concrete sidewalks, patios, and grass next to dirt parking. We experienced the "homey" feel of a neighborhood, complete with cul-de-sac type areas complete with storm shelters. I have to disagree with the previous reviewer as to being "quiet", as there were some really obnoxiously noisy dogs in our area. We got good Verizon and satellite signal and would definitely stay again.

We got the last, and probably least desirable space, next to the store. The other five sites appeared to be long term campers. We were close to the street, but not too much noise. There is quite a bit of traffic that drops off movies and drives around the building to exit. Owners were nice. Site was level and gravel. Park is convenient to downtown Lindsborg, which offers nice shops and restaurants and a rich Swedish heritage. We would stay again.

We loved this park. The sites are level gravel and fairly wide. The staff was great and the breakfasts and dinners were a good deal. There is some air traffic noise due to the park's proximity to Tinker AFB, but mostly during the day. There seemed to be some improvements ongoing, but everything was working and the park was clean and shaded. Our Verizon card was a bit slow but not a huge problem. We did not try the Wi-Fi. We will definitely stay here again.

We were not happy campers when we drove in expecting to pay the $14 Passport America price and were advised their rates had gone up to $20. The turn in looks like someone's drive so we missed it and called for assistance and they did not answer the phone (twice). There are "keep off the grass" signs everywhere, which really should have read "keep off the weeds". I guess they want people to stay indoors. We saw some serious fire ant colonies, and their is a noisy nightclub on the south end and a bunch of noisy dogs on the north end of the park. The water pipes are wrapped sloppily with duct tape and insulation dangling in the wind. The sites are wide and long with concrete at the back and gravel that is very level. Dumpsters are plentiful. There are some broken down units at the front part of the park. I would have been happy to stay for $14, but for $20 I expect a little more.

The price reflects a pull-thru site with our Value Card discount. We found the owners and other staff and guests very friendly and helpful. The sites are level and gravel with great satellite signal. Our Verizon signal was a little weak but okay. We enjoyed a good breakfast for $10. The park has lots of foxtails and burrs which easily found our dog, so check your pet if they've been out. We would stay again, although it seemed a little overpriced.

This is a beautiful newer park. Our rate is a weekly plus one night averaged. We stayed in a regular back-in that did not have room for our 40' and compact car, so we had to walk to parking. The site was also not real wide, although it was separated by flowering shrubs which attracted hundreds of bees. We also had some issues with low water pressure, as did other campers, in the morning and evenings. The clubhouse and pool are very nice. They offer two rounds of golf per day and the pads are concrete. There is also an off-leash area for pets. There seemed to be a lot of ridiculous rules that are "strictly enforced" but they are not, and some of the property owners seem to believe they are exempt from the rules, as I was chased by the same unleashed dog three times in two days. We would definitely stay again if in the area.

We had reserved over the internet specifying we needed satellite from our dome. The first site they put us in not only did not have satellite but also only had 30 amp and we did not have room for our car. The second site offered also did not look hopeful for satellite reception and had some low branches. While we were working with a staff member to crop the low branches and possibly head in backwards, someone else moved into the site. We wound up in a back-in with the long timers. The site was too short and there were so many cars at the parking area we could not find a place to park during the weekend. I had to go back and ask for a receipt. The road into the park is very bumpy and there was lots of construction. There is also a peculiar circle drive with "no parking between signs" which is difficult to do in a longer motor home. There were other low branches making it difficult to maneuver. Children were screaming in the pool before 10:00 a.m., and although the dog area was newly cut, it was at least four inches tall. In addition to the construction noise, there is a nearby airport with loud low-flying single engine planes that had quite a bit of traffic. While we were struggling to find a spot to fit, there was a nice site that was "reserved" but empty that evening, so someone else apparently got a service which was not offered to us. We will not stay again.

Beautiful park consisting of privately owned spacious concrete super-sites, beautifully landscaped, which can be leased with or without the casita. The clubhouse, amenities, and facilities are top notch, and there are lots of planned social activities.

We would most definitely stay again when in the area.

We found this park a little challenging. The street in front of the gate is grooved where rigs have scraped entering and leaving. Our site had the hook-ups on the back right (about which we were warned), but even had they been on the correct side, it would have been difficult to drain the tanks up the incline to the sewer. The spot was tight, requiring us to park the car across and down the lot from our coach, and our slides nearly touched the neighbor's slides. There is nice shade and the host was helpful. There is airport noise and potential for damage from golf balls. Our rate reflects a 10% senior discount. We would stay again if unavoidable.

We stayed a weekend due to our inability to find something less expensive on short notice. This park is grossly overpriced. The regular pull through sites have a severe uphill slant onto the flat parking area and it makes it difficult to situate so as to park a car behind or in front. We moved to a third site and still had difficulty finding a satellite signal. The dog off-leash area has been completely destroyed by an inconsiderate camper who allowed his/her dog to dig deep holes all over the place. It's a wonder our dog didn't break a leg tripping in these while chasing his ball. Then I noticed the area was infested with fox tails, which vets will tell you are extremely dangerous for dogs. The off leash area is also sharing a fence with the very nice playground, which may be an accident waiting to happen. There were many permanents and tents while we were here. The park does have nice shade and grass. A very nice touch was the dog bath. Our Verizon signal was excellent. There was ample room between sites, and we were given a bag of goodies at check-in, but frankly we have stayed at many nicer campgrounds for much less, and we would prefer to pay less. We will make every effort to reserve a less expensive park in advance next time.

Okay, the views ARE spectacular! The problem is there are lots of abusers. Our site was loaded with cigarette butts, and walking along we observed plastic bottles, beer lids and cans, and a bag of smashed dog waste, right near the drains into the ocean. One of the dumpsters had soapy suds seeping out of it as if someone bagged their gray tank and put it inside, again running towards the drains into the ocean. It is hard to climb down or find spots to climb down to the water, especially with a dog. We had to park near the cement wall since there was insufficient space for our 40' rig and car in a space except between the wall and street. There are signs at all the pay stations to indicate anything left outside (even if chained to your vehicle) will be stolen. Our dog rarely barks in the night but got pretty excited here, where there is no light. What a beautiful place which will no doubt be shut down in just a matter of time, thanks to some really rude people.

Park host was nice and helpful. The sites are level, asphalt and the pull-through sites have 50 amp and cost an extra $5 per day. There is a lot of activity with motor sports just east of the park which can be noisy, especially during the weekend. Our first night was a Friday and we heard a microphone speaker and music and then traffic until 2 a.m. coming from somewhere near the fairgrounds. Also, you should be aware this is near a California state prison and there are inmate workers tending the grounds. Park is convenient to new Wal-Mart Super center. We had good Verizon and satellite signals. Overall, we had a comfortable stay and would camp here again.

We stayed a week on the 1/2 price special. We were impressed with the organized activities and the Friday wine and cheese get-together (it was the last one for the season), which really gave us an opportunity to meet other campers and learn the good spots to see/dine, etc. in the area. We really enjoyed this park although our space was slightly too short for our 40' rig and there were rabbits everywhere. The three dog runs (we only were able to find two) are all at one end of this large park and really too small for the number of sites. We found a dead rabbit at the dog area one evening and the dog area smelled bad all the time. We would stay again but in a longer site.

Delightful park with concrete sites. Our back-in was a bit too snug for our 40' rig and compact SUV, but they charge $2 more for a pull through site. The sewer key thing was an annoyance, but I suspect it is some type of city code to ensure you have the proper hose connection. The 2 pm check-in is enforced with a $10 early fee, and a $10 cash deposit is required for a restroom/pool/laundry key. We printed a coupon off the website for the lower rate, but they charged us an extra $5 for 4 days for one dog. We did not use the WiFi, but our Verizon card worked very well. We found an off-leash dog park close by on Red Hawk and Hwy. 79. I would have rated this park a 9, but because they permit site specific reservations, although the park is nearly empty, available sites are quite limited unless you are willing to move. Staff and casino personnel were nice and helpful.

This is a pretty park in the San Diego greater metro area. Lots of the sites are paved with a number of semi-permanent campers who keep it fairly tidy. Many of the sites are fairly wide. The price reflects a weekly rate including a dog fee. The dog run area is dirt and they provide bags but you will need a good flashlight as parts of the park can be very dark at night. And beware the sprinklers come on strong with little warning. We found an off-leash park divided for dogs over and under 30 lbs. in nearby LaMesa, which is also mostly dirt. Lots for kids to do. We had great difficulty with Verizon and our cell card, even after moving to a second location which provided a somewhat better signal but service was still up and down. Other campers complained of this also. The Verizon problem was something of a shock considering we were so close to a major metro area. At the second site we got tiny ants, and even after they sprayed the "really potent" stuff they could only spray when there was no breeze, the ants returned within a day or two. It's possible we would stay again since the rate is competitive, if we could not find a better option as we really need reliable cell service.

This park is absolutely beautiful, quiet, and clearly a 10 plus with regard to facilities. It is located right next door to Bentsen State Park, the birding and butterfly centers, and they even provide bicycles and kayaks to take advantage of the trails. The sites are beautifully landscaped and paved (mostly concrete). Dog lovers will be hard pressed to find a better off leash area at any park anywhere. There are only a couple of permanent type sites, and lots of returning Winter Texans. The pool is smaller than one would expect. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. I rated the park down due to its reservation policies which permit February residents to reserve a specific site for the following year resulting in turning away lots of folks, or causing them to move to a different site and then having vacancies due to cancellations which occur with regularity and with only a minimal penalty. If you're not a returning guest from the previous year, it can be very difficult to get into this park during January or February.

This is a nice campground convenient to Rochester. I found their website not to be working and only the toll-free phone number working. The campground has shuttle service to and from Mayo Clinic and is typically fuller during the week than on the weekends. We enjoyed good Verizon card and cellular signal. Even though most of the trees are immature we encountered a low branch near the exit. We would stay again.

This is a very busy campground due to its location in the Twin Cities. There is shopping and a Camping World within a few miles. Twice we have been unable to book the dates we wanted as they had no sites available for our big rig, so book early. The management was friendly and the sites were so-so. We used a Verizon internet card and cellular without problems. There appeared to be some long term folks. We would stay again, but reserve early.

This is a very nice campground for the Passport America price. There is easy access off the interstate, escort to your site, friendly staff, and we enjoyed a beautiful night sky. The roads are gravel and it had been dry with lots of grasshoppers in the fields, but the grass at the sites was watered. We would definitely stay again.

Nice park with a somewhat odd entry. We were unsure where to go, but found the entry at the end of a drive behind a business. Management was friendly and provided cookies. We would definitely stay again.

OK park but the sites were narrow. Some low hanging branches we had to dodge in the park. The pool looked nice but requires a $5 refundable deposit for entry. Verizon cellular and broadband worked well. Would probably stay again in the area but felt it was pricey.

There is a significant bump which is not readily visible getting in and out of the park. We also smelled urine and manure from the numerous stables. Staff was friendly and park is conveniently located but directions should be obtained as it is not clearly marked or described in the directions. The park is predominantly gravel, thus there is little to no grass to walk a dog. For the price we felt it was a good deal as the sites were wide and long with full hook-ups. We would probably stay here again.

The park has lots of seasonals but they are well maintained. There are lots of activities for the kids and we stayed in a level pull-thru gravel site with grassy areas between. We had no problems with either our Verizon broadband card or cellular service. We would stay here again.

Park has level gravel sites. We stayed on a weekend and there were lots of tent campers (soccer or ball teams) which caused traffic and parking issues within the park. Access to the interstate and shopping were convenient, and we would stay here again.

This is a beautiful park about mid-way from the east and west entrances to Glacier National Park. It's in a large meadow surrounded by mountains and very convenient off Hwy. 2. We camped in a pull-thru site and had to relocate from our original assigned spot as the hook-ups were oddly located such that we were unable to reach them. The Wi-Fi signal was fairly good and there are no sewer hook-ups, but arrangements can be made for the honey wagon. Due to the fact cellular signals are weak, they have established a protected zone at a shelter near the sites. We would absolutely stay here again.

Campground has paved roads with well spaced and nicely landscaped sites. Park is well maintained and we found the staff to be quite helpful. They do require jack pads or boards to protect their pavement. Many of the larger back-in sites have concrete pads and patios equipped with tables and chairs. There was even a nice grill we were allowed to use after asking that belonged to the park. We used the laundry room and found it to be reasonable and clean. We would definitely camp here again.

The park managers were very nice. The sites were level and shaded but we still had good Verizon and satellite reception. This is a nice small park and we would definitely stay here again. They do not accept credit or debit cards, so bring cash or checks.

The park is a no-frills field with full hook-ups. I don't think they had restroom facilities, but I'm uncertain. There was little to no shade, and the mosquitoes were frightening even to former Minnesotans. They attacked in broad daylight in the heat, and we literally had to plan our escape between the motor home and car at dusk or daylight. They attacked our car if we slowed to a stop in town. This city really needs to take some action. The sites are level and spacious. We would stay here again with lots of repellent.

This park appears to be fairly new and in good repair. It is adjacent to a motel with a nice restaurant and includes use of the indoor pool. The sites are gravel and well spaced but the trees are immature. We got good satellite and Verizon card reception. We would stay here again.

The park is right on Hwy. 2 on the east side of town. Use of the pool and exercise room at the adjacent Best Western is included in the price. The layout is quite different, with parking for bigger rigs along the curb of the center island, and lots of small back-in spaces around the perimeter. We had to move out from behind the trees to the south side for satellite reception, but had no problems with our Verizon card. It was well kept and we would camp here again.

This is a nice park close to Wal-Mart and the interstate. It seemed pricey but the sites, pool and facilities were very nice. Verizon card and satellite worked well. Nice book exchange at the clubhouse. We would stay here again.

The park has easy access to sand dunes. We had difficulty with our Verizon internet card and the park's Wi-Fi signal was up and down. Satellite reception was good. The sites were somewhat close with landscaping which needed to be trimmed. Overall it is a good park and we would stay here again.

This is a nice park. We would stay here again. The pull-thru sites were a little close but level. We would stay here again.

This is a very nice park. Rate reflects Escapee or Good Sam discount. We had excellent Verizon signal and satellite reception on our TV. We will stay here again.
