This is a large park with both shaded and open sites. Our site was level with no adjustments needed. There are some I noted that needed some leveling. The pool is large and crystal clear. There is a nice large central room with books and such available. There is lots of room to walk the dog and pick-up bags are available as well as receptacles.. We chose an open site for satellite reception. Interstate noise is minimal with a hill and lots of vegetation between it and the park. Interior roads are fine gravel which is comfortable for walking. This is KOA at its best.
The good: This campground is nestled in a valley just 15 convenient miles north of Knoxville. Check-in was easy and the lady was very courteous and very helpful. Interstate noise was minimal. Pool was crystal clear though very small. The Bad: Campsites were very tight. We had virtually no grass in front of our rig and our sewer, water and electric were 3 feet from our back door neighbor's picnic table! There was very little room to walk the dog - just around the park nearly totally on gravel/rock. There is a fenced dog run and this would be fine for a small dog or two. This park is older and the facilities show wear, though they have been kept up. There is no place for children to play. There are some walking paths that go up into the extremely dense and mosquito-ed forest. This is an "Escapees" campground and the first we have ever stopped at. We probably will not try another.
This is a lovely, very young campground. The whole area is manicured and grassy. Our site took just a little leveling but it was level front to back so we did not have to unhook. Not all sites are this level. Clear sky everywhere for satellite. Wi-Fi was mediocre. Gorgeous crystal clear pool. Showers were immaculate and since each one was an individual room, they were roomy. Do not trust Garmin to take you off I-75 at exit 136. Go on to exit 129. This is a much better and safer approach. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay here again.
It is a wonderful park to stay in. The staff was great and very helpful. We were in Syracuse for a Good Sam rally and stayed here on the way home. We ended up staying for a week, due to an illness. There is plenty of area to walk dogs...and a city park across the street to let the dog run. The park is on the edge of Lake Erie. The campground was clean, well taken care of. The sites were large and we had easy access to satellite TV. I hope we get this way again, so we can have another pleasant stay.
We stopped here for an overnight and ended up staying two days. Perhaps in the summer and a weekend, this campground is busy, but here on weekdays in the fall of the year, it is serene, quiet and lovely. Walking the dog was a joy with literally miles of places to explore. Clean, level sites were a delight after travelling for weeks. The Hosts were helpful and friendly. The campground is a bit off of US 80, but very reachable following well marked turns and good directions from Google Maps. If following Trailer Life directions, use the directions coming in from the West. The other directions are dicey. This was our first trip here, but it will not be our last. Best sites for satellite is 21, 25 and 48. All others are positional. Over the air TV reception was great. This campground is probably 25 air miles from Montgomery and digital transmission was superb.
A beautifully landscaped Resort made up of 50 acres with walking trail, relaxing ponds, lodge with store and kitchen, laundry, clubhouse, mini-golf, biking, hiking, fire rings, fishing, horseshoes, ice, nature watching, picnic tables, playground, propane, restaurant, security, shuffleboard, and lawn tennis. A swimming beach on a little lake that has treated water with fountain spray in center. This was just an overnight for us, but we would have loved to stay longer and will soon. The premium sites included a Hot-tub, large BBQ and a couple of large tents for insect free outdoor eating, or just relaxing. Our price reflected Passport America discount and was a regular site. It was level, grassy, and large with plenty of sky for satellite reception. Free WiFi was strong and fast. We enjoyed this park immensely and will return.
Despite the title of “Resort,” this facility was just ordinary or even sub-ordinary. Our stay was intended to just be an overnight, but had we needed multiple nights, we would have looked elsewhere. The area in which we were parked was near the water treatment plant and odiferous. There were palm tree branches here and there, that had fallen and were not picked up. The permanent campers had exceptionally messy sites with old trashy trailers and clothes hanging on clotheslines. There was a good walk to the rear of the park where we took our pooch. There was an attached RV area for winter campers that may have had all of the amenities that this park claims, but we were nowhere near there and thus cannot comment on those. Interior roads were paved, but our site was grass/gravel and somewhat level. Pulling into the site was tight. We were lucky to get satellite reception, and WiFi was totally unavailable.
On our way to Daytona for The Ralley in late October, we stopped here for an overnight. This is a new park with all the best and newest facilities. Everything shined. Even the permanent campers and the winter campers had exceptionally neat sites. There was plenty of space to walk and on weekends the next-door gigantic flea market provides entertainment. The convenience of the this park just a few miles north of the by-pass made this our definite do again.
This is a very nice clean RV park. The camp store was well stocked, and our site was level. We had requested and were placed in the north end of the campground which is in the open area (for satellite reception). Interior roads are gravel and well maintained but a bit dusty. The sewer dump was remote and easy to use as they provided the sewer hose which facilitated dumping. This is a busy park summer and fall and we were there in October, the weekend before closing and it was packed. Nice long trails and large area to walk the dog. The waterpark was not open in October, but it looked very nice and is part of the campground fee. Our $22.50 fee reflects Passport America membership. We will certainly camp here again.
Rustic, clean, and quiet with friendly staff. There were permanent campers, but their spots were well-kept. Nice area to walk the dog. Very wooded, but we were able to get satellite TV. We would return for an overnight though our site was not particularly level.
While the $15.00 which reflects Passport America's discount was decent, that is the only thing that was. The site we had (all sites) was very unlevel and was difficult to adjust. All interior roads were gravel and although I normally don't downgrade a park because of that, this gravel was more like large rocks which made walking very uncomfortable. Nearly half the park was permanent residents and their sites were straight from Trash City. Outside of just walking the dog around the campground, there was very little space to walk. The staff was courteous and helpful, but we will not stay there again. This place is just sad.
Large, very popular campground. The landscape was well-kept and attractive. The big attraction is the total reconstructed fort with enactments and this is walking distance from the campground; although, a bit of an uphill hike. We are in our 60's and were comfortable doing this. Nice campground store. We had good satellite reception and our Mi-Fi worked well. There was lots of room to walk the dog. The only downside was a large mill of some sort next door that was noisy during the day but quiet at night.
This most unusual campground was easy to find. Interior roads were gravel and the whole place was neat and well maintained. Satellite reception was not a problem. There are two parts to this park, one part down on the Ohio River and the other up on the hill. While all the facilities are up on the hill, the campground as a whole is terrific. The pace is easy and laid back. It is a bit of a drive into Cincinnati, but well worth the 40 minute drive to be totally out in the country. We enjoyed our 2 night visit and will return when in the area. We found Rising Sun, (the nearby town) to be attractive and enjoyable. There is a large casino there if that interests you.
This county 4-H Fairgrounds has hundreds of camping sites, both full hook-up and water and electric only. They rent these sites to the public when the fairgrounds is not in use for fairs. The grounds themselves are very large and all available for walking and enjoying. Our site was near the Rabbit Barn and our pooch enjoyed the wonderful scents. We were able to watch the Sulky horses being exercised and practicing. Although there are no amenities, like swimming pools, or camp stores, the town of Goshen supplied all our needs. Goshen is a large Amish and Menonite area and many buggies are on the road. This area is the RV manufacturing capital of the country and we visited the Montana factory while we were there. We will certainly return.
We love this place and stay whenever our travels take us to Chicago. Although the park is very wooded, it is possible to get satellite reception on the west side outer row. This is a nice state park with clean bathrooms and a wonderful Lake Michigan beach front walk. The park is a short drive into Zion and plenty of shopping and other facilities. One mile away is a Chicago and Northwestern Rail Station which will take you to downtown Chicago on an hourly or half hourly basis depending on the time of day. After a day walking around the Loop, it is nice to just hop the rail and ride back to Zion. We will return. The park is open all year.
We stopped here to visit friends who live in the area and though we had no reservations, the staff outdid themselves to make us welcome and comfortable. The rate reflects Passport America discount. The camp store was well stocked and there was a nice swimming pool and other interesting recreations. Lots of room to walk the dog. The campground is wooded and though we were able to get satellite TV, it would probably be difficult in most of the sites. We enjoyed the park and will certainly visit again.
. Although the facility does not have a swimming pool, or camp store, it does have the Mississippi River along its' banks. We paid extra to have a riverfront cement pad and we absolutely do not regret it. All of the riverfront sites have clear sky for satellite. There are also sites back in the trees if you are needing shade. Looking out our window or sitting on one of the park benches and watching the “Mighty Miss” roll along was one of the single most relaxing activities we have ever done, not to mention huge tugboats and barges 24/7. The pad was level and although the interior roads are gravel, they are well maintained. There were several trails and plenty of room to walk the dog. Memphis is just across and up the river along with all the Bar B Que you could want.
I can never say enough good things about this Corps of Engineers campground. It is clean, interior roads are paved and the camp hosts are courteous. There is plenty of room and trails to walk the dog, even one that walks along the Tom Bigbee Riverfront. Bathrooms are immaculate and the dump site is convenient and very clean. Most of the sites are deep in the trees, but our favorite (#1) has clear sky for satellite reception. This is a popular park and reservations are recommended during the summer and most weekends. This park is open all year and provides electricity and water. The fee reflects the National Senior Park Pass.
This is a large state park with a small campground. Hosts and registration people were very friendly and helpful. Trails and walks were numerous and relatively easy. The first 6 lakefront sites had good sky for our satellite dish. We stayed 4 nights in late fall and weather was lovely. Six miles into Blakely, but worth the trip to see this historic town. We learned a lot about the mound builder Indians and enjoyed our stay.
This campground is conveniently located behind a gas station on US90 near businesses. The campground registration is the convenience store for the gas station. Location is 2 long blocks from Wal-Mart. Walking your pet is just walking around the campground. Interstate noise is constant. A moderate number of campers are permanent and their sites are somewhat unsightly. The lady who checked us in was courteous and helpful.
Good points: Super friendly and helpful staff. Immaculate shower and toilets. Easy Access. Superb city park across the street. Good Wi-Fi. Bad Points: Interior roads are bumpy, pot-holed, dirt and gravel. Permanent campers have messy sites. We were parked next to a "monster truck" (the real thing used to crush cars in shows") who kept starting his truck with no mufflers and we couldn't hear ourselves talk. This is a rustic park which could use some improvement.
Things I LOVE about Tall Pines: 1. Music in the bathrooms. I understand this is your private collection. I actually want to linger in the bathrooms, just to listen. 2. Great quiet place to walk the pooch, or to let them run free in the enclosure. Thanks. 3. Good level sites. Enough sky to use the satellite dish. 4. Well kept grounds, current paint jobs and no trash around permanent sites. 5. Super friendly staff. I feel like each one is a personal friend. 6.Your bathrooms are SO NICE! Clean, roomy and pleasant. Warmed in cool weather and cooled in hot weather. 7. That Firefighter Memorial Garden is so appreciated. My husband, as well as many retired firefighters who are RV'ers are touched and warmed by your thoughtfulness. 8. Thank you for the yellow flags at the entrance. This gives us a little advanced warning before our turn. 9. Handy access to I-20 and the 3132 Southern Loop. Yet, I feel surrounded by trees and sort of out in the country.
This is an awesome campground. It doesn't have all the perks of a private campground, such as a pool. It is a COE campground in the Ozarks sitting at the base of the Norfork dam and lake. The river was 30 ft away from our site. The campground is well kept. All sites are flat and level. The roads are paved. It is beautifully laid out with each site having lots of privacy space (no ghetto). Modern hook-ups. The entire campground is post card perfect. For fishermen there is the river and boat ramp. Huge areas to walk Fido. No problem getting satellite reception. I would pay them to be a campground host here.
