This park is in a beautiful setting and I would really like to give it a good rating, but can't. I stayed here since I was fishing the local lakes and didn't want to waste 30 minutes driving back to Soap Lake were there is a real nice private campground. My site was a lot out of level. And, although the showers were clean, the water was cold. Thirty bucks a night for cold showers and no WiFi? No. Any of the private campgrounds in the area is a better bet (and I've stayed in them all).

This is our second favorite park on the coast. We camped for three days in two different spaces. Both were paved and level. One had 50 amps and sewer, which we did not use. The other was 30 amp and water. No problems with water or power. Bathrooms were cleaned daily. Showers were clean and the water was hot. Great location --- walk to beach, or a 5 mile drive into Westport. Would have been perfect if half the parks campers didn't burn wet wood.... I would have rated it higher, but there are no amenities or Wi-Fi. Showers cost extra.

I've reviewed over a 100 parks. This park was very difficult to rate. The good: excellent location easy walking distance to downtown Winthrop. The park has new owners who did a complete make over. Everything is new: bathrooms, showers, laundry, utility hookups, etc. Except for a gravel access road, the entire park is grass and has a pleasant park like ambiance. The bad: not much is the way of amenities, no pool or hot tub. Tengo internet was dependable but very very slow. The absolute worst thing was the showers: $3 for 4-1/2 minutes. The owner flipped me $3 for a shower when I checked in. Unfortunately, I was in final rinse mode when the time ran out on my shower. It cost me $3 out of my pocket to restart the water (I added $3 to the cost reported in this review). If I want to take another shower in the morning, it will be another $3. Good grief. This is a very nice park that would normally rate an 8 or 9. The shower situation is just plain bad. If you are self contained and don't need showers, this is the park for you.

This is a newer, small park in a semi industrial area easy walking distance from downtown. In fact, the area is better than most RV parks, and pleasantly quiet. Pads and interior roads are paved asphalt. I noticed that everybody in the park used more than one leveling block. The park looks flat but actually has a fair amount of slope. The guy across from us moved to a different spot since he was unable to level his 30 foot class C. We used two lego style blocks on our truck camper. The parks is big rig friendly. Hookups are solid and well located. Although we didn't care for the fresh water hookups. We found the knobs hard to turn, and too close to the pipe to get a grip. The pads are back to back, and "pull-thru" when the park is mostly empty. If the park is full, then your spot is a back in --- not a problem since the roads are wide and unobstructed. The bathrooms and showers were near new and very, very clean --- plenty of hot water. There is a laundry room and rec room that we didn't use. There are no fire pits, a plus for us. With more amenities (pool, hot tub, etc.), this park would be an easy 9 or 10.

Campground is right on the river. Roads and pads are paved. Our rig leveled easy enough with 4 Lego style blocks. Park allows fires and our neighbors kindly shared some of their smoke with us. There is an excellent Nature Center located at the entrance. Walking down to it, we saw an amazing assortment of wildlife: a beaver, muskrat, raccoon, ducks, geese, and osprey. There is a paved bike path that parallels the river right into town. The showers work on push buttons rather than knobs. Since we camped on a cold wet day, we skipped the showers since we couldn't tell if the showers were hot or not. We would camp here again, and did.

This is our second time here. Rated an 8 both times. Last time we had a 38 foot diesel pusher; this time we camped in a small truck camper. The park is right on the Spokane River directly across from Coeur d'Alene. They had comfortable chairs right on the beach for your use and enjoyment. There are no fire pits. I don't think they allow fires. It is an easy 2 mile walk to downtown if you don't mind crossing the Highway 95 bridge. The park's roads are mostly paved. The parking pads are gravel and near level. Each has a little grass and a picnic table. The hookups were reliable and well-situated. We used 4 Lego style leveling blocks to level our rig. The bathrooms and showers are individual units that are near new, and very clean, and in excellent condition --- one the the best bath and showers we have seen in a while. There is a new, fenced, gravel, dog area. WiFi was solid and surprisingly fast. Although the park was next to a highway, traffic noise was more of a rumble than a roar. We would camp here again, and have.

Nice new park. Asphalt roads, level gravel sites with nice picnic tables. The bathrooms and showers were about the nicest I have ever seen and we were full-timers. Most sites line up right on the Clearwater river. The sound of the river all night was a plus. The sound of highway traffic across the river wasn't. Hookups were solid. Wi-Fi was good -- solid but slow which is typical of most RV parks. The park itself is a 10. Unfortunately, there are no amenities and the entrance to it is over rough railroad tracks and thru a seedy industrial area. Unless you are a steelhead fisherman, there isn't much to do in Orofino either.

Hands down, this is the nicest park in the greater Seattle area. Interior roads and sites are paved. Not all the sites are level. It is immaculately maintained. Although the spaces are a little close, trees and shrubs are well located for privacy. Our 50 amp hookups worked flawlessly. There are no real amenities. Free Tengo Internet was limited to an hour a day unless you wanted to buy more time. There is a small fenced dog park on site.

We have camped in every campground in the I-90 corridor from Easton to Ellensburg. This is our favorite. It has paved roads with level gravel sites surrounded by towering pines. It backs up to the Yakima River. Downtown is an easy stroll. 50 amp hookups were flawless. There are no amenities or Wi-Fi, but the bathrooms and showers were spotless. Traffic noise from the interstate is steady 24 hours a day. Also, their are one or two trains a day.

We came here because it got better reviews than most NE Washington campgrounds. It's OK. Has level gravel sites and gravel roads with a few shade trees. It sort of feels like a parking lot though. Other than the golf course, no amenities. The bathrooms were clean, the hookups solid, the WiFi average speed and better than average reliability. It's very quiet. No noise. It's not really a family park. Nothing for kids to do, unless they golf.

Nice park. Interior roads are mostly paved. Some are gravel. Pads are gravel and vary in length quite a bit. Our was dead level. The shade trees are too small to offer much shade. 50A hookups were solid. Wi-Fi was fast, free, and reliable, even with the park full. There is kayaking right at the park. The centennial bike trail is just across the bridge. Downtown Coeur d'Alene is minutes a way. Great location. Not much in the way of amenities.

Nice park. Interior roads are paved. Sites are level gravel with shade trees and grass islands. 50A full hookups were flawless. Wi-Fi was faster and more 100% reliable over 8 days. Pool, hot tub, showers and bathrooms were spotless. I generally don't care for KOA's and tend to avoid them. But this one is nice. The location is great. All the shopping you want is across the street. There are plenty of places to walk on sidewalks or ride your bike. It even has 3 fenced dog parks right in the KOA.

This park was nicer than I expected based on the other reviews. It is a very quiet, in town location that backs up to the Clark Fork River. Downtown is 3 blocks away. The sites are level and partially shaded. Sites away from the river are full hookups and 30A. Sites on the river are water and 50A, but no sewer. The railroad tracks are close but we heard only one train in 3 days. The Wi-Fi worked better than average. The only thing we didn't care for was the insecticide spraying. Four times a day a truck would drive through the park and fog for mosquitoes. We would rather have the bug than the poison. Overall, this is a nice spot from which to fish or visit Butte or Helena.

We checked out all 3 Bozeman RV parks. We thought this one is the nicest. There is highway noise and some train noise. We weren't bothered by either. Sites and roads are gravel with limited grass and shade trees. Views are good. The pads are all out of level. We used leveling blocks. The 50A hookups were solid. Wi-fi was strong, reliable, and very slow. Showers were spotless and very hot. Downtown Bozeman (and a fenced dog park) are 4 miles west at the next interstate off ramp.

This small park is in a grassy area behind the motel. We rank it high for it had quiet downtown location and mountain views. Lion's park, shops, and restaurants are an easy stroll away. Pads are level gravel with some shade trees. The spaces tend to be short and fairly close together. Only 3 of the 10 could accommodate a big rig. The hookups were solid. The wifi was average speed and below average reliability (due to the distance from the transmitter?). This is an adult park since there are no amenities and nothing for kids to do.

This is both the largest and the nicest RV park in West Yellowstone. Hookups were solid. Grizzly uses Tengo-Internet. We never did get it going. Our air card modem didn't work either, even though we got 5 bars. Sites were gravel with grass islands and well located shade/privacy trees. Unfortunately, we needed leveling blocks at our site. Interior roads were paved and dust free with large turning radii: very big rig friendly. This appears to be a family park with a big playground for the kids. However, we found the noise and busyness annoying. The lodge is real nice. Downtown is 2 blocks away.

This park came as a pleasant surprise. Everything was well maintained and neat as a pin. It is right in West Yellowstone on the north side of town, easy walking distance to everything. The hookups and WiFi were solid, although they only had 30A, not 50A. It was very quiet. The spaces are a little close together, but the shade trees are a real plus. There is not much in the way of amenities.

The best thing about this park is the location. It's right in Jackson and real convenient to Grand Teton Natl Park. You can walk downtown. There are hiking and biking trails right behind the park. Unfortunately, the price is a bit high, and for what they charge, they really ought to provide Wi-Fi. The pool and hot tub are up in the lodge, too much of a walk for us. Pads were level, gravel, and lacking in shade. The campground floods badly in the rain. 50amp hookups were solid. Excellent water pressure and taste.

The other reviews are pretty accurate. The site are long, fairly close together, and not especially level. We did have grass, a shade tree, and a picnic table. The park has two fenced dog parks, a plus for us. 50A hookups were solid. Wi-Fi was average speed and reliability. The park sits 2 miles off the highway and is very quiet. I checked out the other campground options in Smoot, Afton, and Thayne, and this park is the best of the bunch. You need to belong to RPI or C-to-C to get in.

This park was a pleasant surprise. It's just 10 empty trailer spaces at the entrance to a trailer park. The road is paved and the pads are concrete with grass islands and shade trees. Full hook-ups worked fine although it was limited to 30 Amps. Wi-Fi was average speed and reliability. No amenities, but, the location is great. There is a park and a dog park right around the corner. Downtown Logan is about a mile away on quiet back streets. The location is much quieter than Traveland RV out on Hwy 89.

It seems nice enough, with paved roads and gravel pads. The pull-throughs are "buddy sites" with one of your neighbors butted up to you and have a nice grass island between you and the other neighbor. It's convenient to downtown and right off the highway. The noise is deafening, worse than some interstates. Office management here is virtually non-existent. It took seven or eight phone calls and two e-mails just to make our reservation. They never returned my calls or e-mails. I had to call them. I think the "manager" is only in the office a few minutes a day. Our bus draws 50A just sitting here. We need 50A hookups. The electricity was busted in the site we were assigned. I fooled with the electric panel all day and kept walking over to the office to see if they could help. No one home.

What a pleasant surprise. We used this for an overnight stop over and wish we could have stayed longer. Has paved interior roads with crushed rock pads. Has fairly narrow sites with tall shade trees and lush grass islands. Hookups and WiFi were solid. It was just a few minute off the interstate and very easy to find and get into. No amenities to speak of but a well stocked store. Shopping and restaurants are within walking distance.

This is probably the nicest RV park in the SW Wyoming I-80 corridor. Has asphalt paved roads and sites. There is modest grass and skimpy shade trees between narrow sites. Maneuvering our 38-foot class A with a toad was not a problem. Hook-ups worked great. We couldn't get the WiFi from our site. The bathrooms were absolutely stunning: brand new tile, large clean shower stall and steaming hot water. Highway noise is a bit much. And it's over priced for what you get. Fortunately for us the park was mostly empty. Every site has a fire pit right under your bedroom window: very poorly situated so you would get smoked out.

This is a tired old former KOA right on the highway two miles east of Craig. The 50A hookups were solid. Good electricity and fast, solid wifi. Roads and sites were gravel but not real dusty. The sites are tight with modest shade trees and patchy grass dividers. We camped when it was nearly empty. This place would feel like a dumpy parking lot when if it got full. Highway noise was so-so. This is another overpriced park, and, the only game in town.

Price includes tax. We camped in the lower 50A full hook up section away from the interstate and the trains. The upper section would have too much highway noise, the lower section too much train noise. We were in the sweet spot. Yup, the sites are lined with gravel boulders. However, the road is very wide and maneuvering is not a problem. The sewer connection was way up front by the front tire. Most folks unhooked and pulled forward to dump tanks, then backed back into there spots: a real hassle. We bought a sewer line extension so we could stay put for 10 days. Overall, the park is a 6 or a 7. Hookups were fine, sites and roads were dusty gravel, Wi-Fi was a joke, scenery was beautiful. The "no name creek" hiking trail is right in front of the park, and there is paved bike path both direction along the river. We give this one a 4 because the price is a rip-off for what you get. However, its the only game in town.

Bingo. This the the park for staying in the Denver area. It is real cute. Clear creek runs right in front of it and has a walking trail that takes you into downtown Golden and links up with miles of other walk/bike trails. There is a kayak run right on the creek and public fishing, too. The spaces are a little close and tend to slope toward the creek. Hookups were solid. The wi-fi worked flawlessly. If the park had more amenities (pool, hot tub, rec hall, etc.) we would give it a 10. Otherwise it is perfect. Downtown Denver is about 20 minutes away via hwy 6.

What's not to like? Double wide, level, concrete pads in a spotless park with a beautiful view of the snow capped Gore mountains. Pool, hot tub, and showers are spotless. Hookups and wi-fi were reliable, although the water pressure was a tad low. Beautiful rec room, laundry, and lodge. On-site fishing (brown trout!!). Breckenridge is 3 miles one way, Frisco 7 miles the other. There is a nice paved walk/bike trail across the street that connects both towns. One of the nicest places we have camped in two years on the road.

Nice park. It gets bonus points from us for having paved roads and pads. Sites were plenty large to pull thru without unhooking, although they weren't real level. We had to use leveling blocks. Location is very convenient to Golden and Denver (Hwy 6 goes directly downtown in about 20 minutes). The facilities were spotless. Hookups were solid. The Wi-Fi was bandwidth dependent and tended to die in the evening when everybody was using it. The park sits against a rocky hillside that is illuminated at night and is strikingly beautiful.

We did not like this park. It is an older mobile home park that takes RV's, about 1/3 junky mobile homes, 1/3 RV live on boards, and 1/3 temporary travelers. Although it had not rained in several days, our un-level site site was mud. I used several leveling blocks to level the coach and keep the jacks from sinking in the mud. The area around the park is trashy. My wife didn't feel safe to walk around, even though there is a nice creek side bike path right behind the park. Be advised that traffic noise is loud. We found the noise unbearable. We planned to stay for a week but left after one night. Hookups worked fine. The Wi-Fi consists of a wireless router in the office. We were able to hit it from 2 rows away with a Hawking Wi-Fi adapter.

In 20 months of full-timing, this is the prettiest park we have ever stayed at. Price is for 50A and a river front site. Excellent county road behind, for dog walking. Fishing is right on the river. It is across the river well off the highway, so there is no noise. The train tracks right behind the park appear to be in disuse. Hookups and WiFi worked flawlessly. Salida is a cute western town, 15 miles west on hwy 50. Gravel roads and sites are reasonably level and drain well in heavy rain. If it had paved roads/sites and a hot tub/pool, we would give it a 10. We would definitely stay here again.

Average park. Beautiful views, gravel/dirt level pull through sites. The water tasted great! 50A electrical was marginal. Our sewer line drained poorly. There is no place to walk or exercise without driving 5 miles back into town. This park is awful in heavy rain. The ground doesn't drain and turns into a oozy, gummy glue. Do not stay here if wet weather is expected. Wi-Fi was average speed and reliability.

The other reviews are accurate. Nice park with beautiful mountain views. Convenient to shopping and attractions. Paved level sites with solid hookups. Plenty of sidewalks for exercise and dog walking. Price is weekly rate. The only down side is the WiFi is extra $$$.

It has an A frame office building and appears to be a former KOA. Located on the south side of Socorro, it is far enough from the Interstate that highway noise is not a problem. The bathrooms and laundry were closed for remodeling when we arrived. The park is a gravel/sand parking lot typical for the area. Sites are level. There are about 3 dozen medium size shade trees throughout the park. The utilities are obviously older. Our water and sewer worked fine. We had a "50amp site" that to my eye looked like a 50amp plug-in wired to a 30 amp circuit. Fortunately, temperatures were moderate and we didn't need either air conditioning or heat during our stay. This park would be OK to spend a few days exploring the area. It's nicer than an overnight stop, but not much.

This is THE place to stay near Truth or Consequences. Roads and pads are paved making it the least dusty park in the area. 50amp sites are available. There is a dump station but no sewer hookups. Views of the lake are awesome. Hiking, biking, boating, fishing, this place has it all. And, the price is right. It is a state campground so there are no amenities like pool, hot tub, wifi, etc, hence our 8 rating.

Immediately upon arrival, my spouse says, "I'm not camping here." The "no frills" description in the other review is spot on. This park is a small, dusty, parking lot north of downtown Elephant Butte. On the plus side, the hookups worked great and there were no outside night lights. It was pitch dark after sunset: perfect for astronomy buffs. Of the 3 amenities this park has, the pool and hot tub were closed, and the Wi-Fi was worse than average speed and reliability. The only reason I didn't rate this park lower is that it seems comparable to others in the area.

This is an older trailer park with the empty spaces rented to RV's. No amenities at all. Pads are gravel with full hook-ups and concrete patio slabs. Some spots are partially shaded. Some are difficult to get into. Location is excellent: right in the middle of town. Price is the weekly rate. We stayed 2-1/2 weeks. Be advised that the park is sold and will be closing approximately 3/31/2011.

Our plan was to stay 3 nights. Five minutes after setting up, we decided to make it an over nighter. The RV sites are in a separate area at the front of a mobile home community. Several RV's are permanent or seasonal but appear to be well maintained. The campground is nice enough, absolutely spotless with full hookups, paved roads, paved pads, adequate specs between sites. Cable and Wi-Fi both worked fine. However, the surrounding neighborhood is marginal at best. The din is unnerving. Talbot is a busy arterial. Traffic noise was loud. It seemed 1/4 of the cars going by had boom box stereo systems. A neighbor across the street was tuning his engine and gunning the muffler-less motor. There was also train noise in the background. This place is good for a stop off the interstate, but I wouldn't consider it a "destination".

We stayed two days. The other reviews are accurate. This park is nice enough for a layover but it is not a destination. Roads and pads are a clay-like gravel (awful in the rain). Showers/bathrooms and utilities are all new. Wi-Fi was average or slower. Surprisingly, the highway was barely noticeable.

This was a well laid out park, easy to get in and out of. It is the closest to downtown, an easy walking distance. No traffic noise. Interior roads are paved and the pads are gravel: no dust. Looking at the slope, my guess is that it drains well in the rain and would be a good stopover in wet weather. About 90% of the park is seasonals, but because of the "10 year" rule, you would never guess. Full hookups were flawless. Wi-Fi was slow. They have a small, fenced dog park but no other amenities.

We checked out several parks. This is probably the nicest park near Austin. The actual location is about 7 miles east of town in a semi-dumpy industrial/residential area. The interior roads are paved as are the pads. Each space has a grass area and a wood deck and picnic table. Most are semi-shaded. There are a lot of seasonal and permanent residents but they are in a separate area from the over-night sites. The park drains very well in heavy rain. Flooding and mud are not a problem. The price is with a Passport America discount. The utilities were fine. The wifi was only average speed and reliability. The pool and hot tub were in excellent condition and not over chlorinated as in most parks. The bathrooms and showers were spotless with hot, high pressure water. Free coffee in the office was very good. The fenced dog park was small and seldom used while we were there. Our GPS said downtown Austin was 13 minutes away but we never made it in less than 25 minutes because traffic is so bad.

This is our second stay here. The park is right off I-10 but far enough away that highway noise is not a problem. Roads and pads are paved concrete: very nice. 50A full hookups were flawless.

I have mixed feelings about this place and had a hard time rating it. Price reflects a membership discount. This is our second time here as an overnight stop along I-10. It is much better than a Wal-mart. We camped in the newer section on the east side, which has concrete paved roads, concrete pads and 50 amp hookups. The older section near the front of the park, had gravel pads and 30 amp hook ups. I got a verbal report (complaint) that the old section floods badly in the rain. I really like paved roads and pads. However, the turns here are especially tight. And, there are a lot of seasonal and permanent residents and the overall feel of the park is rather shabby. The utilities worked fine. Pads are dead level. Wi-Fi access required giving the park our MAC ID number, a serious security breach, which we did not do. Instead we used our air card modem. Cell signal was very strong. Highway noise from I-10 is just a hum in the background. We camped here the same times last year. The weather was warmer and I caught several bass in the private (no license required) fishing lake. The pool and hot tubs were closed on both occasions.

Aptly named as 2/3 of the sites are under beautiful, huge oak trees streaming with Spanish moss. This is our second time here. The park is very convenient to I-10 and downtown Tallahassee. There are several permanent and seasonal sites, but they are in fairly good repair, not too dumpy, and in separate rows from the overnight spots. Pads are gravel and have concrete patio slabs. Most sites are out of level more than our leveling jacks. We had to drive up on blocks to get level. There are no amenities here. However, the Wi-Fi connection was the fastest and most reliable that we have had full-timing in the last 6 months. Highway noise was annoying for a couple hours during evening rush hour, but no problem after that.

For a $100 a night, I was expecting a really nice park. Not so! This is a parking lot with hookups: a tight parking lot and only 30 amps (no 50 amps). No amenities. No Wi-Fi. No privacy. Spaces are poorly defined and other campers hang out right outside your windows. This park is seriously over priced for what you get. We did have a waterfront site with the bay about 10 feet behind our coach. There is a bar/restaurant on site that seems to do a good business. If you want to drink beer and listen to Jimmy Buffet songs, this place is as good as any in the Keys.

Hey. It's Florida in the winter time. Pads are sand. Rigs are wedged in so close that awnings and slides almost touch. Interior roads are paved and very narrow with extremely tight turns. Very typical of this area. Wi-Fi is $15 extra. Although the park is in Ft. Myers, not Ft. Myers Beach, its a very convenient location to downtown, beaches, and area attractions. The park itself was ho-hum with the pool and hot tub the only amenities. Traffic noise could be a problem if you are close to the front of the park.

Very, very nice. This is a huge park with amenities we've never seen before: Olympic pool, two hot tubs, restaurant, poolside bar, mail room, wood shop, lapidary shop, stained glass shop, ham radio station, bass pond with big fish, three fenced dog parks, tennis courts, shuffle board, lawn bowling, two putting greens/mini golf courses, etc. People are friendly. If you are an active senior, this is your park. The price is high, and, the spaces are close together, and some of the turns are tight for a big rig. But, after you are settled in, there is tons to do.

This is a good basic park. Partially shaded, level, sand/gravel pads. Wi-Fi and full hookups worked fine. No amenities. There was a little highway noise during evening rush hour, but otherwise traffic was no problem. We loved the proximity to area attractions: a dog park 1 mile away, shopping 2 miles, historic downtown 3 miles, and the beaches and lighthouse 5 miles away. Great location. We would camp here again.

Park is now called Carrabelle Beach RV Resort. We had no problems with the utilities at our sandy pad full hookup site. Wi-Fi was average speed and reliability. The park was extremely quiet for being located right on the main highway. Our rating is down graded because we were there right in the middle of major reconstruction. There was a lot of noise from heavy equipment. This is the best park in the area and it should be even better after all the pads and roads are paved.

We camped here twelve nights. So far, we've stayed in over 100 parks and done 58th park reviews on this web site. Topsail is our first "10". This is a very nice park. Although there is no Wi-Fi or hot tub, everything else is perfect.

This park is newer than most. Roads and pads are gravel and dead level. It still drains pretty well in heavy rain. Full hookups worked flawlessly. The Wi-Fi was spotty the first two days but solid the rest of the week. We really enjoyed the enclosed dog park for our two dogs. The only real drawback is the proximity to the highway. In warm weather, with open windows, we would find the highway noise objectionable.

This is a small, pretty park right on a lake and right in town. We enjoyed our stay. Roads and pads are paved. Our space was large enough for our 38 ft Class A plus the toad with room to spare. Unfortunately, we had electrical problems. The 50A circuit keep blowing. It behaved like a 30A circuit, totally gutless. This is a very nice park. If it had Wi-Fi, a hot tub, and steady power, we would have rated it a 10.

Price reflects weekly rate. Its far enough off the road where highway noise is barely noticeable. There was a train or two per day: during the day, never at night. The noise was not too objectionable. Sites were level, gravel, partially shaded. They were plenty long but a little close side-to-side. The whole park drains pretty well in heavy rain. Full hooks worked fine. The Wi-Fi was very slow at times with a few drop-outs, mostly reliable though. Our dog needs to be walked about 5 miles a day. We liked this park because we could walk out Garrett road to a small secondary road with light traffic. Although the park is in Columbus city limits, downtown is about 12 miles away. Shops, post office, services are about 3-4 miles away. The River walk in Columbus is absolutely beautiful and worth the drive. This is a nice park. Not any real amenities, but not any negatives either. We would camp here again.

We loved this campground. We camped here for 8 days in mid-December and had the whole place to ourselves, which I don't understate because it is really, really nice. The campground is basically brand new. It was closed for repairs after the Mothers Day tornado in 2008. it reopened on Labor Day 2009. The asphalt roads and pads are new, the electric, water, and sewer are new, landscaping is new, etc. 17 of the 58 sites are full hookup. 11 of the 17 are pull thru. The pull thru sites are huge and can easily accommodate big rigs with lots of room to spare. The pull thrus have concrete pads and are the only sites reasonably close to level. All the back-ins lean toward the water and would be difficult to level an RV. Since they survived the storm, the bathrooms/showers/laundry are older. However, they are in great "as new" condition. My complaint with the showers in that the water only got warm, never hot. The campground is right on the lake and has a beach, two boat launches, hiking roads, and a kids playground. It is quiet. There is absolutely no highway or train or city noise. (It looks like there would be boat motor noise during warm weather). Shops and markets are less than 10 minutes away in Macon. Our cell phones had all bars. We felt safe. Twice a day the police patrolled the campground. The campground is only partially shaded with many trees ripped out by the storm. Fortunately, this improved views of the lake. This is truly a nice park. If it had hot showers and more amenities like a hot tub, pool, and wifi, we would give it a 10.

This is a heavily wooded park just off a small secondary highway. Except for Friday night rush hour, it was perfectly quiet. 50A hookups and Wi-Fi worked great. We had a large, level, gravel site that drained fairly well in heavy rain. The entire campground is in thick woods. We camped five days and wouldn't want to stay much longer. The debris falling from the trees trashed our coach.

Wow. Level, paved, partially shaded sites. Paved roads. Full hookups. All amenities: hot tub, pool, restaurant, lodge, basketball court, tennis court, fishing/canoeing pond, horse rides, hiking trails, and Wi-Fi. This is an excellent park. Price reflects membership discount. Use of the amenities is an extra $4 per day per person. The only reason we gave it a 9 instead of a 10 is that the pool/hot tub was too far to walk from our campsite.

I agree with the other posts: bathrooms and showers were clean, Wi-Fi worked sort of OK, spaces were level crushed gravel and fairly close together. It is the closest park to Chattanooga, so there is some background city noises. The post complaining about this park in wet weather was accurate too. We camped here a week and it rained the second to last day. the ground is hard clay with zero drainage. The water just lays there. On the day we left, I backed our diesel pusher out of the park to minimize driving through the muck.

This is one of the nicest parks we have ever stayed at. The bathrooms and showers are brand new and spotless. We had a large pull thru gravel pad with 50A full hook ups. Utilities worked perfect. The Wi-Fi was fast and reliable. Highway noise is noticeable but not objectionable. There didn't appear to be much for kids to do here. I'd have to call it an adult park. The price we paid is the off season weekly rate including tax. If the park had paved roads, concrete pads, and a hot tub, we'd rate it a 10.

I am surprised by the rave reviews on this this web site. We thought it was a pretty ho hum park. We had full hookups on a partially shaded, gravel, 50A site. Ours, and all the 50 amp sites were very unlevel. The only level sites were 30 amp with concrete pads. If you have a big rig, you are forced to choose between easy set-up and low power, or a difficult set-up and high power. If you have a small rig the 30a sites are the obvious choice. Wi-Fi only works at the lodge, not in the park. The park sits high enough that there is steady noise from the interstate. There were also a couple of loud trains each day. On the plus side, it was very convenient to Mammoth Cave.

We liked this park. It's on a remote spot right on Guntersville Lake. We camped a week and launched our kayaks from the park three days. Our site was partially shaded with a level gravel pad and full 50A hookups. No Wi-Fi. The indoor pool and hot tub where open. The restaurant, library and exercise room where close since this is the off season. We really enjoyed this park. It is definitely a family park with lots to do for kids. We camped here when it was quiet and nearly empty.

Rose Trail RV Park is directly across the street from Colbert County Rose Trail Park. We were able to walk across the street to the lake, boat ramp, and piers. There are only 14 sites. While we were here, we were the only over nighties. The rest were vacant except for two live-aboard and two empty seasonals. Gravel pads are level and partially shaded. Amenities are scarce. I don't know if they even have bathrooms or showers. The general store has typical mini mart inventory plus a good assortment of fishing tackle. Wi-Fi works in the general Store. Several loose aggressive dogs made it difficult to walk ours. At $18 including tax, this is a good deal for 50A full hookup site.

We camped here 5 days. The park is located in a trailer park. The RV pads appear to be abandoned spaces. It was nice enough for a stop over. It has convenient interstate highway access but it is far enough away so there was no noise. Stores and shopping are nearby to the south. Memphis is about 20 minutes west. Our 50A full hookups worked great. There is no wifi. Pads are gravel and partially shaded. Ours was reasonably dry during heavy rain. Most sites where pretty muddy. The pull throughs are real tight turns. Big rigs might be better off backing in.

Beautiful park!! Large enough to walk and get some exercise. In late Oct., it was empty and quiet. Dark at night, too. Pads and roads were paved. The sandy tent areas at each site were level. Unfortunately, the pads themselves were way out of level. 50A power worked great. No amenities. No wi-fi. We would stay here again.

We paid the extra for a south side long pad with a grass island. Gravel island sites are a little less money. It was nice to have paved roads and pads, no mud or dust to deal with. The park is in great shape: just like new. For proximity to a major metropolitan area, this is tops. We walked to the Arch every day just for exercise. The drawbacks here are the lack of amenities, no pool, hot tube, Wi-Fi, etc. Highway noise was constant. Railroad noise was hit on and off. Our pad was seriously out of level and required leveling blocks. Overall though, a very good park. We would definitely stay here again.

Park is located on the frontage road at the NE corner of I-70 and Hwy 65 near Marshall, MO. It's an open grassy field off the highway. It sits a little above and back from the road so the noise isn't as bad as it could be. It's bad enough though. There are a dozen 50 amp, full hook-up, back-in sites on the east row that will accommodate big rigs. However, the ground is soft in the rain and it's a poor location in damp weather. There are pull-through sites available, but they are 30 amp only. Every 4th or 5th spot has a small tree. The same goes for picnic tables. The general condition is run down and neglected. The grass really needs to be mowed throughout the campground. Both ends of the 50 amp row have trash piles of construction materials, old appliances, rusting farm equipment, etc. There is a pool, but it is half full of mossy green water. Out buildings in the park all need paint and new roofs. We stayed here two nights to visit family in Marshall. This is a place to stop and catch some sleep. It's not a "destination" or family park.

We camped here for a week. Price is weekly rate plus tax. This place was OK, no better, no worse. It rained the first day and our first site was a mud pit. We moved to a dry site the second day. It was level, partially shaded, and had a gravel pad. Water, power and sewer were fine. The wifi didn't work at all. The pull through sites in the rear loop where we camped have plenty of room between spaces. In other loops, the sites were close together like a parking lot. The store at the office was very nice and sold pizza, beer, wine, and alcoholic beverages. Even though the water was cold, folks were still catching bass and catfish in the ponds.

Prior post complained about tight roads. We had no problem with access in our 38 ft Diesel Pusher plus toad. We did have a problem with the sites being seriously out of level. Even on leveling blocks we were not level. The pull thru sites are side-by-side facing opposite directions. So, one one side there is lots of room. On the other side, you are butted up tight against your neighbor. The showers and bathrooms were clean. Great exercise room. Super indoor pool heated to about 90 degrees. The hot tub and sauna were both closed for the season by mid-October. Wi-Fi available only in the clubhouse/pool area. Highway access is very good. Highway noise would be a problem for us if we camped here in warm weather with the windows open. For $14 a night on Passport America, not a bad deal.

I agree with the post that said this was a hidden gem. Quiet, beautiful park setting with level, gravel, partially shaded, 50amp, full hookup sites. A bargain at $20. Plenty of room to bicycle or walk the dogs.

For a campground near a major metropolitan area, this is not bad. Has full 50amp hookups, gravel pads, open sites in a quiet, park like setting. Unfortunately, no Wi-Fi. Our site had two sewer connections, one too far back and the other too far forward. None of the sites was especially level. Roads in the park were paved which was especially nice since it rained heavily during our stay. The entrance to the park is now a "cute" narrow winding road/driveway that would be dangerous or impassable for two big rigs going opposite directions.

Nice little park. We stayed in #3, a full hook-up, 50A, partially shaded, level, gravel site. No problems. Our 38 foot DP fit easily with room to spare. There is a gravel water front walk, a pier canoe launch, and the paved Munger trail. If the weather was better, we'd stay here a while. Lots of recreational opportunities. The park has a park-like feel. A bit muddy in wet weather, but otherwise okay. The Wifi worked great.

This is a little park tucked into the woods right off the highway. Noise was noticeable but not a problem. There were a lot of mostly vacant seasonal sites. Ours was partial shaded, level, gravel, 30A full hook up site. Plenty big enough to easily get our 38 foot diesel pusher into. There are 3 or 4 newer 50A sites I found the next morning. There are not a lot of amenities. It's and OK place to stop for a weekend or over-nighter.

A very nice campground. We had a large, level, gravel pad, pull-through site in the open with a beautiful view of the bay. The waterfront boardwalk goes all the way along the bay. Bathrooms and showers are modern and spotless. 50amp power and Wi-Fi both worked excellent. We are full timers and this is one of the nicest places we have stayed in a long time. Two thumbs up.

It's not a campground. Forget the amenities. In late Sept., even the bathrooms were locked. There are two rows of grassy and dirt pads out in an open field/parking lot. Electrical power is centrally located with two 50A plug ins, several 30A, the rest are 15A. If you don't get one of the central spaces, bring a real long power cord or you won't reach. Water is available at all sites. The odd thing here is the sewer. Someone with a travel trailer or 5th wheel whose black valves are on the back corner would not have a problem. If you are in a Diesel Pusher, with drains in the middle, forget dumping you tanks. On both rows the sewer intakes are on high ground. The slope of the pad puts your RV's sewer drain many inches lower than the parks sewer inlet. Do-do doesn't run up hill. The only thing this place has going for it is it's right in Fond Du Lac. Downtown is walking distance away. (note that the "other" Fond Du Lac listing on RV Park reviews is dislocated. It is actually several miles south of town).

This is a big FAMILY oriented campground. Amenities include a water slide/water park, Frisbee golf, driving range, tennis court, skate park, river canoeing, etc. Although they are back-ins, the RV spaces are relatively large, and well-spaced, and easily accommodate big rigs. There are no sewer hookups, just water and electric. Wi-Fi works great but cost extra. Pads are gravel and semi-shaded. There are a number of seasonal sites, but they are well maintained and not as junky looking as some places we have stayed. Campground roads are unpaved and very, very dusty. We are grateful we camped during the week when the park was empty. Golf cart and RV traffic Sunday afternoon choked up a fog of dust. Even though the weather was cool, we kept the windows closed and the AC on in order to keep the dust out. In mid Sept., the pond and the river are clogged with green muck. This is the first time in my life that I have ever seen a river of pea soup. It is probably OK earlier in the year. By autumn, it's simply gross. There is a nifty 60 foot hill behind the water park which affords a 350 degree view of the area and is perfect for evening stargazing. The terrain is flat farm fields and perfect for bicycling. There is a security gate at the entrance. Our price reflects a private membership discount. Public rates are $50-75 during peak season. The bathrooms are showers are older and maintained so-so.

I liked the feel and park-like appearance of this campground, and I would have liked to rate it higher, but I can't. It's a cute park and convenient to Chicago if you consider a 90 Metra commute convenient (which is as good as it's gets around Chicago). On the plus side: it's a grassy park with fairly large asphalt sites and a paved road. It is located in the middle of a habitat preserve: wetlands and swamp. Mosquitoes were outrageous. Water faucets were in odd locations far from the parking pads. My two hoses hooked together would not reach half the faucets in the park. Water pressure and quality were good. The 50A power was a problem: power spikes blew our fuses about seven times in a five day stay. We had to turn off the AC and water heater in order to run the microwave. There is no Wi-Fi. The pit toilets and so-so clean. The fishing ponds are supposed to have fish but I didn't see anybody catch a thing the whole time we were here. This is a pretty little park relatively close to Chicago that is short on amenities. We'd stay here again if visiting the area.

This is a FAMILY park with lots to do: mini golf, driving range, swimming, etc. It is large enough to get in a walk: took me about 20 minutes per lap. Even though it's next to the highway, very little highway noise. There is a variety of sites available from heavily shaded to open field. We camped in the newer, 50 amp, full hookup area in the open field. It had a distinct parking lot ambiance. Water, power and sewer were fine. The Wi-Fi sucked. The slowest connection we've had in a long time (when it worked), and it didn't work about half the time. The location is convenient to the Newmar plant.

We camped here 10 days, so we paid the weekly and daily rates. This park has the highest density of seasonals that we have ever seen. At first glance, the park is kind of dumpy: second glance too. Our gravel pad and the parks roads were plenty big enough for our Diesel pusher. Water, sewer and 50 amp power worked fine. There is no pool and Wi-Fi only in the dumpy clubhouse. We had 0-2 bars on the T-mobile air card so Internet was on and off. Most of the pads are well shaded. Ours was and the trees made a real mess of our coach. However, you can wash your RV here.

This park is located in an industrial/residential area just south of the interstate. Highway and train noise are in the background but not a problem. The park appears to be brand new and in excellent condition. Water, 50 amp power, and sewer are all great. The roads and pads are level and gravel. Many spaces are big rig pull-throughs, although several are bit close for my comfort: a parking lot feel to them. Spaces all have a small grass area with a picnic table. There is a community fire pit (a real plus since we don't like being smoked out by our neighbors). Wi-Fi here is free, but slow and unreliable. The bass pond is full of bluegill, never saw a bass in 3 days of fishing. Location is convenient to interstate highway and downtown Indianapolis. Plenty of stores/shopping just minutes away.

A cute park with asphalt pads and roads, mown grass and semi-shaded sites. As pretty as a picture. It's convenient to interstate highway with the noise just barely noticable. Passport America price at $10 bucks. I'd like to rate this park higher but it has no amenities. No water, no sewer, no Wi-Fi, no pool, no clubhouse. Just a beautiful park with hiking trails and a beautiful lake. Pads were paved but not very level. If you have a big rig, be sure to go to the second pet area were the road is double wide and several pads are long enough. Most pads in the park are too short for a 40-footer. We stayed overnight but would have liked to stay longer. Showers look good, but the pit toilets are a bring down.

For an older park, this one was really nice. The roads and pads were level and well maintained. Power was 30 amps but worked flawlessly on two air conditioners. We got a space without sewer but the honey bucket emptied our tanks for $7. We stayed here on RPI at $10 a nite. I checked the bathrooms and showers but didn't use them and they were about the best I've ever seen: absolutely spotless. The Wi-Fi worked fine. The swimming lake is actually the better fishing lake with bluegill and a few bass.

We camped here just one night to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame (about 7-10 minutes away). We selected this park because the reviews suggested reliable 50amp service and reliable, free Wi-Fi. Both of these are true. We are camped in the "field" that other reviewers have complained is "a parking lot". Yeah, it is. However, the spaces are huge! Our pull-through spot must be 100 feet long and 50 feet wide. It's not like our awning is banging the coach next door, like some parks in Florida. We are taking off early tomorrow. And, even though the office opens at 9am, the owner has agreed to meet us at 6:30AM to fill up our propane tank. This is a nice park. With a concrete pad instead of gravel, a hot tub, and a bass pond or a slightly lower price, I'd rate this place a 10.

We only camped here one night on the way to another destination. The RPI rate is $10 a night. We paid an extra $5 for "50 Amp" service which turned out being a 30 amp site with a 50 plug connection. Our AC repeatedly blew the fuse. What a rip-off. There is a VERY SHARP turn going into the park if you are coming from the west. We had to unhook the toad and do a multi point turn: DANGEROUS and a P-I-T-A. Otherwise, the gravel pad was better than most, the water taste and pressure was good. There is no Wi-Fi but adequate cell coverage for our T-Mobile air card (Blackberry). This is a large park with large roomy spaces. The lower pond is packed with Bluegill and Bass.

This is a nice, clean, quiet, well maintained campground. Yes, it's a glorified parking lot. However, it has paved roads, level concrete pads, strong Wi-Fi, and reliable 50amp service. It's location is as close to Boston as you can get, and Salisbury beach is just 3 minutes down the road: an easy bike ride. The pool is warm enough to get into, and isn't packed with kids. This park tends toward adult campers. The only downside is the highway out front. It was a little noisy: about a 3 or 4 on a scale of 1 to 10.

This is a better than average campground. Paved road, gravel sites. We had a nice visit. Location is vary convenient to Woodstock, Quechee Gorge, and Hanover NH. Our terraced site was a little difficult to get into, and not especially level. The 50 amp serviced worked great. So did the Wi-Fi. The pool was ice cold so we didn't use it. There is not as much for kids to do here as there is in other parks (which was fine with us). The only drawback was the highway noise which I would rate as a 5 on a scale of 1 to 10. Not real quiet, not bothersome either. Just noticeable. With level paved pads, a heated pool or hot tub and less highway noise, I would have rated this CG a 10.

We hated this park. This is a FAMILY park with an arcade, shuffleboard, boat launch, horse shoes, 3 pools, a hot tub, baseball field, etc. Perfect for families, lousy for older couples. The business, din, and racket here was intolerable. We had the only diesel pusher in the park. The rest are travel trailers and pop-ups. The park is heavily wooded. Think mosquitoes. The pool and hot tub were crowded with kids. We never used the pool or the hot tub. The fire ring next door was about 6 feet from our bedroom window. So, our neighbors smoked us out every night. At $42 a night wouldn't you think Wi-Fi would be included? No, it is an additional $15 charge. What a rip-off. I'll camp in a Wal-mart parking lot before I come back here.

This park was OK. The previous posts are on the money. It's right next to the highway. So, the noise is pretty bad. The location relative to Quebec is super. We took the ferry across and walked. Levis is cute. And the river front bike trail is super. On the down side, I thought we had reserved a 50 amp site. At check in, the gal spoke just enough English to explain that 50 amps was $5 extra. I think they charged us a buck or two a day for our dog too. I felt like i got shafted. Next time we'll camp somewhere else.

This is the nicest park we have stayed at in months. It is also the nicest Passport America we have ever stayed at. Price listed includes PA on Sunday through Thursday. We stayed 11 days. The rec hall is brand new. The fitness room has top notch machines. The pool and hot tub were in excellent condition. The par 3 golf course on site is challenging enough to be worth the effort, and very affordable. It's a family park with lots of activities and kid noise. If it had concrete pads, less noise, and no camp fires, we'd have given it a 10.

The campground is located on a fairly busy highway 2 miles north of Skowhegan. Convenient to Wal-Mart and other shops and restaurants. Highway traffic noise varied from bad to non-existent. The sites are either grass, gravel, or dirt. Most spaces are large and at irregular angles and tend to be well shaded in heavy woods. Some sites are in the open. We camped five nights in a 50 amp full hookup site. Power boxes throughout the park appear to be brand new. Water pressure was the best we've had in a while. The Wi-Fi worked great. The bathrooms were older but clean and in good condition. The Passport America discount lowered our cost to $28 a night. This is a family CG with lots of kids, campfires, and activity around the pool.

This is a nice small campground off the beaten path. We got a level gravel pad with an outstanding view of the river/bay. Even though it had rained for several days before our arrival, we got a nice dry spot. 50A and water and sewer all worked without problems. Wi-Fi was average or better. A little slow but no drop outs. Good bicycling and kayaking opportunities in the immediate vicinity. Owner was very friendly/helpful. We got two "soft shell" steamed lobsters from him for $15. They were the best lobsters of our trip so far.

This is a medium sized, well maintained park convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Our "S" section premium, full hookup site was shaded and level with a gravel pad and only 30 amps of power(no 50amp avail). It was a back in site that was too far from the office to get the wifi connection. One nite, we had a good lobster dinner delivered to our motorhome for only $35. It rained most of the time we where here. Our site was dry enough. The roads in the park are paved asphalt and in excellent condition, although some of the turns are a little tight. The full hookup spaces are roomy. Many other sites in the park are a tad close together. The pool was in great condition but packed with kids all day long. This is definitely a family park. We would have enjoyed it more all the campers gave up on the notion of burning wet wood.

This is a small park on top of a hill gently sloping toward the bay/river. Views from the premium sites 36-40 are especially good. The WiFi and full 50A hookups worked great. All sites are grass and gravel and reasonably level. Our only complaint is water. It's been a wet spring, and it poured while we were there. Our site was puddled with water all 5 days we where there. In addition, the roads are mostly mud with very little gravel. I spun the tires on our diesel pusher trying to get out of there. I barely made it. I understand that another gentlemen sunk in and had to be towed out earlier in the week. In dry weather, we highly recommend this park. In wet weather, camp somewhere else.

This is a small, quiet, heavily shaded campground. There is one pull thru site, but it is a tight fit for a 40 footer. Instead, we took a back- in site near the front. The sites are level with gravel/grass. We only stopped overnight. 30 amps max, no 50 amp. However, the Wifi connection was excellent. The gravel road into the park was recently graded. It made for a nice quiet place to walk as well -- lots of little ponds with bullfrogs.

This is a family park: lots of kids / noise. T-mobile cell worked great. Wi-Fi is an extra $5 per day. We camped here in a coach at $12 per night on a discount program. The guy next to us paid $55 a night!! Sites are level grass or gravel, and either sunny or shaded, 30 amps, not 50. There is only one pull through in a very shaded spot. The park is large enough to get a good walk. The pool appears to be in great condition. We had bad luck with the utilities. The sewer has a trap right at the inlet. If your doughnut doesn't seal REAL TIGHT, your black line will leak. Our 30 amp elect power went out about 7 or 8 times on a 4 day stay. They fixed it the last day we were there. On our last night, the water line stopped too for no reason. It is a nice park and we will probably try it again. I can't rate it higher because of the problems we had.

We liked this park! Has wide open, level, sunny paved sites with easy beach access. There is a boat launch. Excellent bicycling into Salisbury beach. Power is only 30 amp, but worked fine, no problems. Mid week in June, the park is mostly empty. It will be completely full Saturday evening. If it had 50 amp, Wi-Fi, and sewer, we could give it a 10.

We camped here one night in a motor home. Paid $20 on Passport America (reg rate is $40). Park roads and sites are primarily a sandy gravel that was very clean to drive on even in a downpour. There are sites in heavily shaded trees, as well as sites in an open grassy field. Most sites are seriously out of level. We camped in the field and had to use thick wood blocks under our tires. Getting level here is a problem. No Wi-Fi. Our cell worked OK. The park has a nice 50 acre lake that is large enough to kayak. It looks like a great bass pond, but we only stayed the night and I didn't fish it. The park is on a small country road which had more traffic noise than expected: nothing like an interstate, but not quiet either.

We had a great time bicycling the High Bridge Rail trail and checking out historic Clinton. Jugtown Mountain is tucked in behind a trailer and truck canopy sales company. Maneuvering was tight. The spaces were tight. There were very few 50 amp sites. It rained cats and dogs our first night. We parked on one of the few reasonably dry spots. The park was pretty empty for a June weekend. They had a nice pool but it was locked. The bathrooms were way too far away from the camping areas. Overall it was dumpy and overpriced. We have stayed in nicer parks for less money.

This is a decent park in the heart of Amish country. The hosts were great about directing us to the local attractions. There are plenty of walking and bicycling back roads behind the park (and a SUPER Amish bakery walking distance down the road). We had a grassy space with adequate room. It was not especially level. Our HWH leveling jacks did not have a problem. The guy next to use in a newer coach with air bag leveling never got level. The wifi here was free but only worked so-so. Cell phone coverage was excellent.

Location a few miles form Front Royal was pretty convenient to Shenandoah Park and Front Royal. This is an older park. The clubhouse and pool are in outstanding condition. However, the roads in the park are tight to maneuver. Some spaces look close together. Ours was roomy enough. The very small bass pond has some fish in it.

This is a huge FAMILY oriented park located inside the Stone Mountain Park. We stayed two nights in a level, full hookup, lakeside, PULL-IN site that turned to mud in the rain. We are an older couple. This park had kids everywhere: scooters, bikes, skateboards, soccer balls, you name it. Way to busy for us. Worse still, at night, everybody had camp fires. Between the inversion layer and the propensity to burn wet wood, the air was so thick with smoke I was choking the whole two days we stayed there. Generally, a park in this good a condition with these nice facilities and amenities would rate higher with us. However, we thought this place sucked.

We stayed a week in a motorhome at a full hookup site. Our space was a little cramped and not especially level. Worse, the gravel and grass were worn down and it was mostly just red Georgia clay, which we tracked in when it rained despite multiple floormatts. It's and older park with sections dedicated to full timers (actually nicer than the RV section!!, which is a little unusual). Very convenient to the Alpine town of Helen and plenty of hiking and fishing nearby. There was a little more road noise than we would have cared for too.

We loved this campground. Every loop is on a different finger projecting into Lainier Lake. We had a grassy, partially shaded site with a level concrete pad, water, and 50 amps. The park is absolutely beautiful and is super to walk, bike, or kayak. We stayed two nights and would have liked to have stayed longer. If it had sewer at the site, we would have given it a 10.

This is a private resort campground. We stayed a week in a motorhome. We have a nice stream side pull site with a gravel pad and full hookups. The park was neat and clean and everything was well maintained. The Wifi is transmitted from one location at the clubhouse. We were too far away to connect. Nice park.

I agree with the other posting: this is the best Passport America park we have ever stayed in (discount good only two nights). Facilities were immaculate. Back in sites with gravel pads on and off river. Wi-Fi was great. River has fish in it. Convenient to highway, but far enough away to be quiet. We would definitely come back to this one.

Clean park next to highway and river with concrete pads. The first pad I tried was way out of level. The second (and most of the sites) had a tree planted right where the sildeout goes. Road in was dirt with a sharp turn. Wi-Fi worked great. Warm and buggy in late April. Traffic noise was about the worst we've experienced anywhere. For convenience to Asheville, it was OK.

We stopped by for one night. Paid $10 through RPI. Park is older and seen better days. It's a pretty park that winds its way through a mountain valley. Each paved pad has it's own wooden deck (although most are in sad shape). We were isolated from the world: neither the cell phone and Wi-Fi worked here. The park is plenty big enough to walk and get some exercise.

We stayed 9 nights in a motor home at $14 a night through RPI. There are just a few 50A sites all the way in back on a hill (back in dirt and grass pads). We stayed the very first opening day under new management. The place was just getting grass mowed, power and water turned on, Wi-Fi going, etc. The roads hadn't been graded yet either: very rough on the coach. After a tough first day, things were OK. No place close by to hike, bike or kayak. There is a golf course nearby and I can report that Bass Lake actually has bass in it.

Everything was brand new, clean, and spotless. There was only one bathroom/shower in the corner, but, since we stayed in a motorhome, no problem for us. No pool, but the hot tub was awesome!!! Park was convenient to the highway but far enough away so there was little or no highway noise.

We like it. It was a little remote, but that is part of the charm. The road in is narrow and has little traffic. It's perfect for bicycling. (It goes 10 miles north for a pretty, flat, 20 mile ride.) The boat launch at the camp is on one of the prettiest bays we have ever kayaked. Has LOTS of birds and wildlife. There are plenty of nice kayak launches in the immediate area. The full time campers here are in good repair and separate from the RV campers. We stayed a week and paid $13 a night through RPI. We'd rate the park higher if it had Wi-Fi, sewer drains flush with ground level, and concrete, asphalt or gravel pads instead of grass.
