This is a GREAT place to spend some time if you're looking for a quiet and peaceful location. There are only 11 sites and a small cabin available, but everything is in excellent condition. The sites are all back-in, but site 10 can work as a pull-through for bigger rigs. The owners are extremely accommodating and friendly. The utilities are all new and in excellent working conditions. Sites are mostly level, but you may encounter slight variations to deal with, using your leveling jacks. The park is all grass (very well maintained) with gravel road inside. We absolutely loved staying here and will definitely return for a longer stay next year.
This park is quiet, away from the freeway and just fine a for a night or two. As stated in other reviews; there are many permanent residents here, including a few pets, but we had no issues. Utilities were adequate and we had a pull-through long enough for our 40-ft MH and 15-ft trailer. Inside roads are all dirt and gravel and there is a tight turn with large pot holes at the entrance. We elected to turn-around at the church a few blocks down the road and enter from the other direction. They have a small General Store located in the park that is quite nice, rustic, and has a good inventory of items. We would stay here again.
Newer park with excellent hook-ups but no longer accepting Camp Club discounts. Sites are easy access with large pull-throughs and plenty of room on each side. No shade trees, gravel roads inside the park, and fairly close to highway. There is a train track a few hundred yards away, with a regular procession of trains going by during the day and evening. Only heard one during the night - thank goodness. Also occasional jake-brake heard from trucks leaving the highway ; otherwise fairly quiet all night. Staff is friendly, sites are level, and this makes a good place to stop for the night.
You won’t find a more peaceful and beautiful setting to camp, especially if you’re looking for a place to relax for lengthy period of time. Like the name implies, the campground is well off any highway, providing plenty of beautiful desert and mountain scenery to look at, walk in, or ATV in. However, there are some problems in this paradise setting that may keep us from returning. You have to travel over 6 miles on dirt roads to get there, and contrary to some other reviews, we found several sections of the road filled with severe washboards, which shook our 41ft motor home like crazy – no matter what speed we tried. Additionally, the trailing dust cloud we created left the coach completely covered, including much of the inside. Since we tow motorcycles instead of a car, we elected not to endure the road back out of camp to do any exploring and instead; did our exploring on foot. We had a great time exploring the desert terrain while doing a little geocaching. Our site had a beautiful view, but also had quite a down slope; requiring blocks to compensate for. For some strange rationale, the owner will not allow large RVs to use 30-amp service with a pig-tail connection. Instead, we had to take a 50-amp site, which is fine, but cost a little more and was not needed. The staff is very friendly but only available 9-12 Mon thru Sat – which was quite inconvenient at times. WIFI is available, but make sure you ask about the password when you check in, since the staff is hard to find if you decide to ask later. Never the less, if you have an ATV, jeep or car in tow, then this campground would provide one of the quietest, and most tranquil camping experiences you’ll ever find – especially for an extended stay.
We stayed here before and returned, hoping to have same pleasant experience. Unfortunately, some personnel changes occurred and we did not experience the same friendly service with one of the office managers as we did before. The other manager is great. Pull-throughs are easy to navigate, but all are dirt and gravel and ours was not very level. Services are fine, but it was difficult to stay connected to the wi-fi, even though it is setup with several log-on sites. The person who runs their support shop provides GREAT service; which includes windshield repair and satellite support. There is some freeway noise, but not enough to keep you up all night. Our price is based on average price for several nights stay, including Camp Club.
This is definitely a place to hang your hat for the night but nothing more. The grounds are pretty run down and lack of general maintenance is evident everywhere. The office staff was helpful and friendly but that's about the only thing to brag about. Sites were level, but close together - some right next to the road. It was quite noisy until late night hours when traffic dies down and things get pretty quiet. Water, electric, and sewer connections were fine - including a large quantity of cable TV wire lying on the ground; which we did not use. Next time we're in the area, we'll check some of the other nearby sites first, but would stay here again if needed.
This park has plenty of good and plenty of "not so good". It’s located right next to small lake with a tranquil setting to enjoy. There is even a 5 ft alligator that resides within so swimming is not allowed. The pull-through site was easy to access with our 41'RV, including our 14' trailer. The site had some ruts and lots of dirt, which raised concern if it rained. Although very level, the sites are close together, with some room for a picnic table - but not all sites have them. There is a little highway noise, although not enough to affect sleeping. Our biggest complaint is the tight quarters and all the workers apparently camped here to work on a major project somewhere. They had a lot of "stuff" around their coaches and were up at the crack of dawn, warming up their diesel pickups to provide an annoying alarm clock. This may be a season thing. The nicest thing about the park is the lake setting and the very friendly staff. We used our CCUSA discount - cash or check ONLY.
This was a wonderful campground with a very nice lake setting. The campsites were very spacious and level; although all gravel and dirt. The lake has a nice walking trail with several rental boats along the shore (oars rented). We would have given this a 5-star rating but felt that some added effort was needed in maintenance and cleanup – nothing ruins a beautiful lake setting than finding trash around the shore. Regardless, the campground is definitely a keeper and highly recommended.
This is a really nice campground and highly recommended. Some of the turns are a little tight, but we managed to navigate the campground with a 41' RV without breaking or scraping anything. Roads and campsites are all gravel and very level. The campground is huge with several lakes to enjoy, including very nice lakeside camping for those who want to enjoy an extended stay. Most of staff was very helpful and all the shopping you could need, including Wal-Mart is just a couple miles down the road.
This is a great campground and highly recommended. The sites have full, spacious, and level concrete slabs; including concrete patios. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The campground is located in a beautiful wooded area and is very quite. The only complaint we had was the Wi-Fi system; which provided a weak and intermittent signal. There is also little to no Verizon signal available. To be fair, the signal strength probably varied and might have been better in other sites.
Great campground, well off the freeway. Plenty of grass and shade trees and pull-thrus which easily accommodated our 41' rig and 14' trailer. Full service hooks-ups and levels sites. The town of Welcome has little more than a gas station and bar and grille for services. There are train tracks just across the road but not much traffic. However, there is a small switching yard at that location, so when trains do come in, they are there for several minutes: blowing their horns as they go back and forth. Regardless, we extended our stay here and would definitely use this campground again. Highly recommended.
Highly recommended campground for any length of stay. Entrance and parking for any size rig is available; approachable on well maintained gravel roads. All sites are grass, which is well maintained and great for vehicle washing ($5). The far north-end sites are best suited for big rigs, which look out over the plains and corn fields and have wild turkeys, chipmunks, and squirrels visiting. Grounds are very quiet except for the occasional train passing in the distance. Staff is friendly and town of Pipestone has plenty of stores for supplies.
THE GOOD: Far enough off I-90 to provide a nice quiet setting. Friendly staff, plus there is a convenience store, gas station, and cafe just a block away. Not crowded during our stay and would definitely stay here again. THE BAD: Roads are all dirt - creating plenty of mud when rains come. Some sites have a tight turn radius, making it difficult for some big rigs but still manageable.
THE GOOD: A beautiful and quite setting worth considering. The roads are paved with easy road-side pull throughs and back-ins. 6 small lakes surround the park and there is plenty of space between sites. Extremely happy staying here. THE BAD: Water is only available at the ends and middle of each camping row. No sewer but dump-site available. Charged for the site, park entrance, and each vehicle. Depending on attendant - may charge for toad as separate vehicle. Attendant not always available by phone.
The GOOD: Easy access, all sites are roadside pull-thrus. Convenience store near-by, full hook-ups, 50 amp service, concrete patios, picnic tables, grounds well kept. The BAD: Less than 150 yards from I-29 so you can expect plenty of highway noise. Gravel and dirt roads in park. We would stay here again in an emergency, but the noise from the freeway is very annoying.
