We were at this park for 2 nights as a base for visiting in Seattle, about 15 minutes away, and it was an excellent value. The park developed as what one might expect in an “in city” park. The entire park is paved and the sites are lined off—and they are close together. While a little grass would be nice it did the job for us. The staff was very helpful and friendly, the showers were immaculate, and they had a very nice indoor pool. The only downside for us is that while they allow pets, it’s not particularly a good park for people with pets. The “designated” area for the dogs is really the right of way on the main drag out front and with all the dogs that visit the park it was a bit unsatisfactory. All that said we would stay here again.
This was a nice, convenient, easy park to access. The staff was helpful and courteous. The sites level, gravel with a bit of green in between sites. The green areas needed a bit of weed whacking or mowing but it wasn’t too bad. They have a little fried chicken restaurant on site that was yummy. The only thing that needed improvement was the bathhouses require updating, painting, privacy and more cleanliness. The bathhouses were at best about a 5 on a scale of 1-10, but were usable. There are nice trails and this is a very dog friendly park. We would definitely use this park again when traveling through the area. Rate with KOA discount.
A nice little park, gravel sites separated by planted trees, well maintained off the main drags in West Yellowstone. The staff was very helpful and courteous. The showers were well maintained and clean. The laundry was a great value. They only take checks or cash but that was a minor frustration. The park is convenient to the Yellowstone West Entrance and within walking distance to many downtown businesses. We would stay here again. Rate reflects Good Sam discount plus taxes.
So far the best park we have camped at in Alaska. A little ways out of town and a bit remote but not an issue as it was an easy run to downtown and the NP. Good w/s/e/ cable/ Wi-Fi services at the park. Only issues were minor - a few loose dogs meandering through the park,and it would be nice if the management spent a little time on a weed eater around the sites- though they are predominantly gravel. The CG sites are angled across a gentle slope thus sites are not absolutely level . But we liked the park and would stay here again.
Nice folks running this park. Very courteous. The previous reviews are accurate. Wi-Fi worked in the park for 2 of the 6 days we were there then quit. Its was available only sitting at the front door of the office. Mentioned it to management but they said its the way it is. Noise from the RR and nearby airport are issues here. Homeless people moved through the park one evening trying to sell used coolers. Probably the best thing going in Anchorage for camping though. Convenient to many Anchorage attractions.
We usually stay at this campground several times a year. It is very well maintained, clean showers, and facilities. Simply the best campground in the Clarksville/Fort Campbell area. There is no cable, but had good antennae reception. WFfi was very good. Easy on and off I-24. Road noise was noticeable, but expected for an Interstate campground.
This was not a great place to camp. A glorified parking lot, cramped up spaces, and not very well maintained. It was shocking to see they will not allow any garbage to be collected on site and they require you to take the garbage off with you.Litter was heavy in the park. We walked 1.5 kilometers to find a public waste receptacle. They allow pets but the surrounding area is heavily overgrown. A nice trail adjoins the site.
Toad River has been a highpoint of our camping experiences while traveling the Alaska Highway. Very nicely laid out and well maintained campsites located in a remote area adjacent to the highway. Restroom facilities were rustic and outdated as was the laundry room, however, it was a very enjoyable and lovely setting to stop and relax. A Beaver pond/lake next to the campsite provided excellent wildlife entertainment at no extra cost. Full hook-ups nicely positioned at campsites. Campsites well marked. Much needed fuel was available. The Wi-Fi was the best we’ve experienced in the Northwest. The on-site café ceiling was covered in ball caps. We would stay here again.
Very nice, clean park, located far enough off the highway where road noise was minimal. Sites are level gravel. Wi-Fi services were only available in the laundry and office areas and then the system was very slow, easily overloaded by all those trying to access the system at the same time. The fenced in dog park area is good for large dogs, but small dogs can easily escape under the fence. The showers were clean, but several were out of service. They seemed fanatical about their grass/lawn. No vehicles are to be parked on any part of the grass. The owners concern about their grass seemed to be overdone. We would stay here again if in the area.
This campground only had water and electric connections in a facility that is showing its age. Well developed dump sites (6 lanes in large open area). There were long lines in late afternoon to enter the park even with advanced reservations. The online registration process was expensive and cumbersome. In addition to the nightly rate, you have to pay a National Park Entrance fee of approximately $20/day. All that said, it is about the only campground in Lake Louise for RVs. They had a separate tent section that is enclosed by an electric fence to keep bears out of the campground.
$49.20 (includes sur-charge for registration). This campground was one of the finest government operated facilities we’ve stayed at. Well developed and maintained with full hook-ups at each site. Restrooms and showers were clean and well maintained, however, only had one shower stall in each restroom. Hiking trails were easily accessible and marked throughout the area with spectacular views of the mountains. The only negative we found with this campground was the online registration process was expensive and cumbersome. In addition to the nightly rate, you have to pay a National Park Entrance fee of approximately $20/day.
Conveniently located to the East Entrance of Glacier National Park. This campground sits on the side of a steep hill making it difficult to level rigs. Bathroom and laundry facilities are located at the bottom of the hill with a steep climb or descent to access bathroom and laundry facilities for full hookup sites. The laundry room was nice and well maintained. Wi-Fi was advertised to be available in laundry and office areas. However, this did not work at all, even after the owner rebooted the system. There is a café on-site. A lot of seasonal workers seemed to reside here. Sites were narrow and short. Grass was overgrown. Staff was friendly and helpful, however, we will probably not stay here again.
Very nicely laid out campground which was well landscaped in the more developed sites on a scenic location along the Yellowstone River. We were frustrated the cable and Wi-Fi that were advertised were non-existent at our campsite. The Wi-Fi system was totally inadequate to support a campground of this size. Most of the time the Wi-Fi was unusable. We were able to finally access the Wi-Fi at 4:30 AM, when no one else was on-line. For the price we paid, not having cable or Wi-Fi and no sewer on our site, we were disappointed. Despite this being a showcase KOA campground, it had the dirtiest showers we have ever seen in a KOA. The campground however had numerous amenities such as on-site grill that served 3 meals a day and scoop ice cream that we felt was a little overpriced. It would have been nice if this campground had a fenced in dog park. We will not stay here again.
All gravel campground east of Cheyenne just off the interstate. Dog park was a fenced-in gravel area, not easy on the dogs' feet. Our site was unusually weedy considering there was no intention to have any turf around the sites. Staff was very friendly. Bath, shower, and laundry facilities were excellent and very clean. The pool area had a privacy fence on the roadside which made it more welcoming.
This was a great stop along I-70 and one of the nicest KOAs we have ever stayed . Level sites. Friendly staff. Dog park was appreciated. Very clean showers. Very well laid out park that catered to families and travelers. Was dusty at times, but that goes with the territory of traveling in the plains. There was an antique farm equipment museum across the road from the campground we wish we had more time to explore.
A spectacular park sitting in a beautiful location at the base of Georgia's tallest mountain, Brasstown Bald. Its a bit off the road near Hiawassee, but upon arrival one will find a very well developed RV park (more like an RV resort). Beautiful landscape, lakes and great amenities in a breathtaking mountain setting. We visited this trip in our truck camper as we were in the north Georgia region, and wanted to check this park out as a place to visit for a longer stay with our fifth wheel. We will definitely return as it met and exceeded our expectations. We only saw one shower/restroom facility located in the office complex and not the main shower/restroom building located elsewhere in the park. The office shower facility was not very attractive and we shied away from using it. There is a bit of a problem with pesky geese/duck droppings in the vicinity of the ponds so we had to watch our step. But the overall quality of the facility and its awesome location made it a pleasant place to be and a place we want to visit more frequently.
This seems to be one of the new KOA Journey type campgrounds. As such it is fantastic for an easy stop along I-75. The staff was just wonderful. The Kamp K-9 was a huge hit with our 2 mutts. The sites were gravel and a bit tight and were short, which was not a problem for our truck camper. But it was more than adequate for our travels and a nice quiet respite for a one night stay. While the facility is close to the interstate it is set back far enough away so there is no road noise! The store was well stocked and the facility appeared very well maintained. Nice Shoney's right next door. Many thanks to the staff for a well done park!
This is an excellent value for a nice little campground that is very convenient to Gatlinburg. Showers/restrooms are VERY clean, sites are level (gravel sites). Nothing fancy but its neat and clean, nice pool, good Wi-Fi and cable. Simply nothing to gripe about! For Gatlinburg this really gets the job done in meeting campground needs for the RV traveler. We will be back!
I rated this park on the low side because the maintenance of the campground appears to have slipped quite a bit. Aside from that it is a spectacular and well run park and is a national treasure. We were in Loop D. The restroom shower curtains were sickeningly covered with mold and mildew, the exterior of the very modern building (vinyl siding) was covered with mold and mildew. The grounds where we were camping had grass in excess of 1' high and apparently had not been mowed in some time. Properly developed tent pads were saturated with weeds. Its clear the National Park Service is being slammed by budget cuts and treasures for families and recreational enthusiasts like Bandy Creek are bearing the brunt of the burden. The cost to replace a few shower curtains and to buy a bottle of bleach to wash down the vinyl siding is minimal and for less then $50 each in material (curtains and bleach to wash the siding), the well designed shower/restrooms could be cleaned and in excellent condition. The Superintendent and staff are to be commended though for an overall great facility and a wonderful attitude towards the users of this great National Park facility. Our only hope is that someone wakes up and gives these fine folks the resources they need to maintain and sustain these wonderful parks like Bandy Creek at the Big South Fork. This is the most pet friendly National Park facility I have ever seen! We will definitely be back to Big South Fork and we hope it is given the resources it needs to get squared away for those of us that want to utilize this camping facility.
Stopped here for a one night stay. Directly north of Atlanta off GA 400, this is a great campground. Very nice and helpful staff, very well landscaped lake area and developed park. Sites are gravel but rather nice. The only thing we felt was a bit awkward was the underground water supply for the site. Not a major problem, but a bit difficult to get to and rather messy being underground. Obviously set that way for freeze proofing. At the time of this report there was a lot of construction coming into the park of Exit 13. Once this is complete it should make for an easy approach to the campground. We will definitely stay there again when we are in that area.
We camped here the last week of 2013. These folks are very focused on assuring excellent service and maintaining an above average facility. Service is the best we've seen!This time of year (around the Holidays) in central Florida one can expect to pay a premium price for a good campsite and that is true here, but it seems to be a good value. The sites are paved and the hookups are very good. Access around campground for vehicle movement is excellent.The additional services (meals- some included, WiFi, cable etc are great!) A few draw backs- but not significant issues- are the sites are short-a problem with overall facility design. Sites are 90 degrees perpendicular to the travel roads. Angled sites would have made parking the rig and possibly site length much improved. The dog runs are rather small and confining- and they need more dog runs of a larger size. Sewer connections are good, but in our case (and some others we noticed)the actual connection was above parking grade making drainage a bit of a chore. A disappointing aspect for us was that the sites- even though well mowed- were very weedy and they do not have any apparent established turf in the area we camped- or have lost control of the turf. And mother nature assured we had a good dose of mosquitoes the week we were here-- but hey that Florida! We will visit here again though.
This is a very convenient well developed park for those visiting Lakeland/Central Florida. It is large and well laid out. Sites are level. The staff is very helpful and cordial and overall the stay was very good. The paved pull through sites are large. The rates are very reasonable for central Florida. Wi-Fi and cable are great. We would rate this park higher, but there are a few nagging problems. The grass has been high the last two visits and the park is quite "buggy" making outside leisure difficult--- so bring the Deet ! (in fairness mother nature has been providing much dampness there of late and that's life in central FL). The fully paved site we were in was covered with thick grass clippings which were wet, rotting and quite disgusting. The concrete pad was severely cracked and becoming deformed. Many of the sites around the park are grass, but are level. On the large pull through sites the separation between the sewer connection and the power/water pedestals is quite a distance, requiring the use of extensions for sewer, water and power. Fire ants are rampant. My wife and I were both bitten numerous times making our visit a bit uncomfortable -- but again that's life in central FL. More control over insects in the campground would be nice, but it is a very large park and such control might be too difficult. Access into the park is relatively easy. Access out of the park (to the left and northbound) is very difficult. One must travel south for quite a distance on Bartow Highway to find a location to turn back to the north if you are headed that direction when departing. We hope a bit more attention can be paid to maintenance in this park , but its definitely one we will visit again.
We find this popular campground to be a convenient and well maintained operation. Its adjacent to the I-24 interstate and exit 1 interchange making access easy. Its very easy for us to use when visiting nearby relatives in the Clarksville area. Some of the sites are a bit short for longer rigs like ours but that's not a big problem- we made it fit. Would be nice to have cable TV. We will definitely be back! Nice pool and all in all a very good park.
This is such a perfectly maintained and nicely landscaped park! It is a model for other campground operators. Very restful with easy sites to access for large sites.Convenient to the interstate and to Mammoth Caves. Great WIFI and plenty of TV channels. Sites were just fine. Momma would have liked a pool and a little better signage getting to the campground would have been helpful, but they were minor issues. Thanks for a wonderful stay to the campground hosts!! We will be back!!
This is a great park for travelers passing along the I-77 corridor. We needed an over night stop for our trek from the north back to the south. Its a perfect location- easy on and off the Interstate with a nice clean well develped park. We have 2 dogs and they really appreciated the new dog parks and large dog walk areas at this campground. Check in with the staff was great and quick. We were set up on our pull through site(which was very level) in 15 minutes. Fantastic Wi-Fi and cable TV service kept us in touch with the rest of the world. The location and quality of the park made it easy to disconnect quickly the next morning and allowed us hit the road pronto the next morning. We will definitly be back again at this park for north- south transits that use the 1-85, I-77, I-81 corridor. Good value.
An outstanding stopover location. Clean, comfortable, well maintained. Pleasant folks at the arrival desk and an easy in and out overnight stop along a busy byway. We will definitely be back here again. Sites not perfectly level, but definitely workable. We were able to pull in, get level enough and be on our way the next day without disconnecting, or a major set up event. Cable TV and Wi-Fi were great. Nice areas to walk and play with our dogs.
