We had one of their "extra long" 30 amp power and water sites (sites 47 through 64) and had no problem backing our 35' rig in. Site was grassy and wide. Hookups were at the back of the rig. I was able to stay hooked up to my truck plus park my second car on site. Easy in/out. There are some long term campers and parts of the park look dumpy. Showers are $1 pay. Free Wi-Fi worked well. We'd stay here again.
Unique but nice little RV park. As previous reviewers said, it's rustic. You get nice long pull-throughs or a back-in with full hookups. Their brochure says they have Wi-Fi but I didn't ask for the password since my Verizon MiFi worked fine. There's a city swimming pool within walking distance. The park owners are very nice. I would rate the park an 8 but when he brought a door mat and placed it under my steps without asking, I bumped it to a 9! AT&T signal was fine too.
I'd rate this as the minimally acceptable RV park. For what you pay, you should get more but there's no competition in nearby Fargo. You get a gravel spot with suitable hookups plus wifi. There is some grass for dog walking. There's also gas & diesel across the street. Everything else is 20 miles away in Fargo. I saw the hole in the road created by the reviewer's bus last month. They laid a telephone pole across the hole to keep others out but never fixed the hole. I get the impression that Day's Inn could care less what goes on out here in the RV parking lot. For a night or two, this will suffice.
Past reviews are too generous IMO. This is an okay overnight stop but certainly not higher than a 5 or 6. This park is full of long termers with a few spots open for transients. Sites along the river looked like they had flooded recently. Our site was about 60 feet long & narrow plus it sloped from back to front. Almost all sites are full shade. Staff was friendly and wifi worked. Laundry was dated. Bathrooms had a bad odor. Both ATT & Verizon had good signals.
Sunset Lakes is a destination RV park for families. It's pricey -- base rate is $50+/night. We paid more because our grandkids came and set up a tent. This park has tons of amenities like a large pool, multiple game rooms, horseshoes, tennis, basketball, canoes, paddleboats, license-free fishing, a nice mini golf course, organized activities on weekends, and more. Everything is included in the price. They had a great fireworks show on the 4th July. This place was packed for the holiday weekend and the kids had a blast! Sites vary from grassy w/e to concrete pad FHU. Negatives -- out-dated showers, wifi is not free, some sites are close together. ATT had a weak signal and Verizon had a strong signal.
We stayed at this KOA a year ago. They have made noticeable improvements since then. They have a new jumpy pillow and a new playground for kids. They moved the dog play area and it's now two fenced in areas. The roads in the park are still gravel and somewhat grooved from recent rains. Many sites slope from front to back. My rear stabilizer was at full extension when we were level. Friendly staff and well stocked store. The bathrooms were clean this time too. Both Verizon and AT&T had strong signals. Park Wi-Fi was a little slow but it did work.
Nice park for the overnight crowd. Gravel roads & generally level gravel sites. Big rig suitable. Good bargain with Passport America. Park wifi didn't work. Free cable TV, outdoor pool & playground plus they give you 2 bottles of water at check in. Both ATT & Verizon had good signals.
Nice park for its size. Amenities include cable ($), non-heated pool in season, good wifi, & game room with free pool & ping pong. Friendly staff. Grounds could use some work as there's very little grass. Easy in/out for rigs up to about 40' or so. Anything bigger may be tight turning into site. There's very little in Sundance so come prepared. Both ATT & Verizon worked well.
This is a good (not great) RV park for visiting the Little Big Horn. There's a half mile of dusty gravel road to get here. Sites & interior roads are gravel too. Sites are terraced on a hill and almost all slope side to side. I thought the park was pricey too given what I paid after GS discount for a water/electric only site. The park wifi was too slow to bother with. Other than a playground and horseshoe pits, the park has few amenities. Staff was friendly. Both Verizon and ATT had strong signals.
Previous reviews are still valid. This remains a good RV park for the eligible camper. Sites are paved with concrete slab in center for RV. Our site sloped from front to back but not beyond tolerance of leveling jacks. Park WiFi worked well and both ATT & Verizon had strong signals too. They don't take reservations but if this camp is full, Malmstrom AFB has another FamCamp inside the base perimeter.
Truly one of the best KOAs! Amenities set them apart -- heated pool/hot tub, daily breakfast & dinner (extra charge), basketball court, horseshoes, playground, fire pits with benches at every site, 2 game rooms, well stocked store, and ice cream parlor. Sites are long, level gravel and spaced nicely 25 to 35 feet apart with easy access for big rigs. Negatives aspects were weak park Wi-Fi and limited shade, as trees throughout the park are immature. The laundry was expensive at $2.50 a load, too. Daily rate is high but you are only 3 miles from Glacier National Park. Both Verizon and AT&T had strong signals.
Concur with recent reviews. Very nice park especially considering it's walking distance from town and only a couple of miles from the west entrance to Yellowstone. I never could get on their Tengo Net wifi and unfortunately, Verizon had a very weak signal here too. ATT had a good signal. Also, no campfires are allowed due to a city ordinance. We'd stay here again when visiting Yellowstone.
This is our second visit to this KOA. They do everything right in my opinion. Great amenities, especially for kids. Wi-Fi worked well. This park could be a destination park for a family with kids. It's in a city so there's some road noise. They have a variety of sites to fit about any need. All looked easy in/out. Rate reflects a water/electric-only only site with discount so the average rate will be upper 40s. Both AT&T and Verizon had strong signals.
Very nice KOA! They have 2 rows of pull-throughs with full hookups that stay pretty busy. Then they have 3 rows nicely spaced closer to the river with water and electric only. Some back right up to the river. Sites are level gravel on gravel roads so there is a little dust, especially on windy days. Roads are wide enough to make easy in/out for big rigs. Camp Wi-Fi worked well, which was good since both Verizon and AT&T had weak signals. A few sites were good for satellite. Many sites were nicely shaded. We didn't see any tree limbs in the way except for two weeping willow trees which were easily avoided. Amenities included free cable TV, a heated pool and hot tub, and rental bikes for the kids plus multiple playgrounds. Park is pretty close to I-90 so there is some road noise.
Overall a very nice park! They didn't require a deposit on my reservation (which I like since I pay cash). Probably the only reason to make a reservation is to get one of their few 50 amp sites. Sites were long and mostly grass with some gravel underneath for support. Easy in/out for big rigs. The heated pool & hot tub were a plus. Don't expect a shaded site as the trees look like recent additions. The free park wifi worked well. Both Verizon & AT&T had good strong signals too. No cable TV if that's important to you. I recommend you arrive via the La Grande-Baker highway 203 so you only have 1/4 mile of dusty gravel to traverse. Otherwise, you have about 2.5 miles of bumpy dusty gravel to get here from I-84 to the south.
This campground is a bargain but it's 10 miles off the interstate and out of the way if you are just passing through. Like many military FamCamps, you get a good site with good hookups but not much else. They have an older washer & dryer (both worked fine) and each site has a picnic table and grill. That's about it for amenities. Trees make satellite access challenging. We had daily dust storms which are common here in Spring. They don't let you rinse the dust off either. Some sites are 30 Amp and others are 50 Amp and there's no way to tell which sites are which without walking around and looking at each one. Laundry room and bath rooms were swept but not particularly clean. They don't take reservations which means you drive the 10 miles to the base before you know for sure if a site is available. They were never full while we were there. Definitely use the commercial gate as you won't be able to navigate the curves coming in the main gate! You can depart through the main gate. We'd stay again but for an overnight passing through. Both ATT & Verizon had good signals.
This is a nice little RV park catering to the overnighters. Staff was very friendly. She walked me to my site to make sure I could fit. Paved interior roads were only 15' wide which makes for a tight turn into your site, especially for longer rigs. Sites are about 70' long and level gravel so there's plenty of room once you turn. Sites are a little too close together at 12' between rows. Lush green grass grows between sites and around park. There's a swing set for the kids and a small store, but not much else for amenities. Park WiFi worked really well too. Cable TV had 24 basic channels. Easy access from the interstate and close to Walmart & fast food. There is some road noise from a nearby busy road. Both ATT & Verizon had strong signals. Some shade sites needed trees trimmed so as to not rub on RVs. Overall a nice stay for the under 40' RV.
An okay RV park with a great location for visiting Bryce Canyon Nat'l Park. Very friendly staff. "Pick any spot you like." Sites are gravel and mostly level. Park road is paved and sites are easy in/out. Each site has a picnic table, grill, and standard hookups. Their laundry is a single washer/dryer combo in an outdoor lean-to using the honor system to pay $1 per load. We used it and it worked. Wifi is useless unless you are very close to the check-in building. But Verizon MIFI signal was 4G. ATT signal was very weak but good enough for phone calls and slow data. One oddity -- the phone number on their web page is wrong. It rings at the owner's house and she no longer lives on site. The correct number to call is (435) 676-2243. I asked why they hadn't fixed the web page but they said they had no control over it. The owner is elderly and things aren't getting done. A few sites had limited shade but most are full sun. Price shown is after GS discount.
This is a fine campground to visit nearby Zion National Park or even the north rim of Grand Canyon, with some caveats. The park offers heavily shaded pull throughs, nicely spaced with grass between sites. The majority of the sites in the park are back ins, also nicely spaced with grass. The back ins are also easy in/out with nice wide paved roads and paved sites. The park has cable TV and a laundry but few additional amenities. The park WiFi is free but we never got a signal. They are paranoid about dog poop and one of the many rules demands a $25 charge for failing to clean up poop. Also, the park is not for families. Children must be "declared" at check in and cannot play anywhere in the park. Children are limited to a 2 week stay or shorter as well. I rated them lower for their odd rules about kids, and excessive rules in general, even though we are not traveling with kids. Both Verizon and ATT had strong signals.
This is the nicest military fam camp that I've seen. Plenty of large, level spots laid out in large spoke patterns with ample space and extra parking. Amenities included grassed dog run (practically the only grass in Las Vegas), playground, laundry, and good Wi-Fi. Plus you have the Nellis AFB amenities close by. We stayed a week and they were never full but I'd recommend reservations anyway. Both Verizon & ATT were 4G/LTE.
Previous reviews give this CG a bad rap but it is Fine for shorter rigs. I'd say anything up to 37 feet would have little to no difficulty. Mine is 35'. They said most buses disconnect toads after turning into the level portion inside the gate and have no problems thereafter. Interior roads are paved and double wide which makes turns into sites easy. Yes, sites are narrow at 11' and the power pedestal takes up some of that space right by the entry. Sites are 60 feet long but you may lose about 7 feet of that if you have a slide-out on the left side due to placement of the pedestal. They were parking rigs in every other spot and allowed me to park my toad in the adjacent spot since they weren't full. When you first turn into the park, you have to stop on an uphill grade to register. That bothered me more than the narrow sites. They lead you to your site which is terraced and paved into the hillside. There is nice grass and flowers between sites but everything slopes when you get off your pad. Overall this is a pretty park and well manicured. They also have 4 sites which they have widened about 2 feet for larger rigs so inquire about them if you need it. Good ATT & Verizon signals.
Nice, friendly KOA just outside Needles CA in the desert. No grass, but they did conveniently plant tall shrubs between sites to add the feeling of privacy. Very easy in/out with wide gravel roads. They have a pool, laundry, store, pet walk, and playground as most KOAs do. Only 11 of their sites are 50A so call ahead if that's important, e.g. running 2 air conditioners in summer! Both ATT & Verizon had strong signals. The only grocery store in Needles closes this week so plan to drive 20 miles to the closest major Walmart/Safeway if needed.
Recent reviews are still spot on. For a site in a national park, this was great! I had room to stay hooked up to my TV and I'm 53' nose to tail. Anything longer wouldn't fit. ATT signal was sporadic and 1 bar. Verizon had a weak 3G signal too. The east half of Trailer Village was junky long-term campers but I didn't see any transients assigned spots over there. This park (west side) was full almost every night so reservations are a must!
This is a beautiful park nestled in tall pines at the edge of a mountain. If you have a shorter rig you'll have no problem weaving through the pines to your site. I had no issues with my 35'. Big rigs are going to struggle a little. It's not impossible for the big rigs as we saw some extremely long rigs with long trailers in tow. But only a few sites will accommodate and KOA charges more for their long "premium" sites. Sites are gravel and most have some slope. As is typical for a KOA, sites are a little too close together, too. They advertise that you can only use an air conditioner on the 50amp sites which makes me doubt the integrity of the 30amp pedestals. My 50amp worked fine. Strong ATT & Verizon signals.
This was a pretty good overnight campground. Transient sites are all pull-thru. Most were about 60' long with perhaps 20' between sites. A few were slightly longer or shorter. Big rigs would fit in most sites after removing TOAD. They have free wifi, a pool, a playground, a store, & a dog run. There are stickers & stinging west Texas red ants to dodge for dogs & kids. The park entrance isn't well marked after you exit Highway 84. There's a small sign pointing to the right that says KOA. You turn between some evergreen bushes and there's the KOA. We watched RVers miss this turn and go on down the road looking for a turn around. Both Verizon & ATT have good 4G/LTE signals. Given the other choices in Lubbock, this KOA is a good choice and the price was right for a change!
Previous reviews are still spot on. This is certainly a good park if you are visiting the area or passing through. The Eubanks gate is perhaps105 inches wide. I was creeping through with my 96 inch wide RV. We stayed in the newer area which was double wide and extra long with deep (a little too deep) gravel. I don't recommend anything larger than a standard TT stay in the older section. My dog didn't like the stickers either. Camp WiFi was very slow. Verizon & ATT signals were strong. There's nothing for kids to do at or near the park.
Very nice park for a short or long stay! This is a well-maintained COE park on Lake Waco with 6 full hookup 50 amp pull-through sites, 33 gravel 30 amp water/electric back-in sites, and a handful of tent sites. The 50 amp sites are concrete side-by-side with little shade. The 30 amp w/e sites are more picturesque, nestled in the trees and widely spaced. All of the back-ins are nicely laid out for easy back in. Most have ample shade and a few have an open view to the SW for satellite. Each site has a picnic table, BBQ, and fire ring. Most of the picnic tables are under a cover as well. You can view individual site details including site length on the web site when you make your reservation. For the price, this camp is a great deal! Verizon and AT&T had strong signals.
We thought this park was superb. Easy in/out with paved roads and extra long paved sites, well spaced. Superb views of the lake from almost all sites. As the previous reviewer stated, they only have Tengo for Internet and everyone knows by now that it's useless. But Verizon & ATT both gave strong 4G/LTE signals so bring your own. We experienced no dust issues either. There's no propane in the park but a shop in town sells it for $3/gal about 5 miles away. This park is a little pricey but the lake access alone makes it worth the money IMO. It stays busy so make reservations. Price reflects GS discount.
Your experience at this campground will depend on your rig & site! Read the past several reviews and you can tell all of these folks were in the large pull-throughs and not the butt-to-butt back-ins. The park puts rigs shorter than 35' into 1/2 of a 70' pull-through. So you back your rig up butt-to-butt with the rig behind you. You are literally 1 foot from the rig behind you when you get in "your" spot. To make matters worse, the hook-ups are in the middle on only one side. So one RV has the hook-ups on the correct (left) side and the other must run power & water under their rig, presuming they have a very long cord! Incredibly, some folks had pulled straight in and unhooked. Then another rig backs in front of them meaning the later rig must depart before the first rig can get their TV in to hook up. I've never seen such a poor set-up in my 90 campgrounds visited! Other than this ridiculous butt-to-butt parking, the CG is a 9 or 10. So I recommend you lie (yes lie) and tell them your rig is longer than 35' so you can get one of the nice pull-throughs or sit solo in one of the 70' pull-throughs. Oh, I almost forgot. The lady at check-in was berating someone on the phone who was complaining that their rig wouldn't fit in one of the back-ins. I watched several folks try to get in one of the back-ins only to give up and go somewhere else. Camp WiFi was slow but Verizon WiFi worked well.
This is a great FamCamp for those who are eligible. Concrete sites are extremely long and well spaced side to side. Sites are FHUs with 50/30 amp and cable TV. The base has added free WiFi that worked well. That was good because my Verizon WiFi could not get a data signal strong enough to get on the internet. ATT had a 4G signal. Downsides: stickers everywhere made dog walking challenging. There is no bathhouse for the FamCamp but there were bathrooms (toilets only) at the nearby playground. No laundry on base. Limited shade from a few small trees. We'd definitely stay here again.
You'll either love it or hate it here! If you are looking for a quiet, remote camping experience "off the grid," then you'll love it. This park built a reputation as a go-to destination with repeat customers, nightly music, and more. Most of that is in the past because the park is now under new management. It is only open part of the year, and no longer has nightly entertainment. You do get full hookups or W/E only in a very no-frills environment. Most sites are 30 amp but three sites are 50 amp. You'll have no cell phone coverage but good camp WiFi. Bathrooms are pay-for-use so I didn't review them. Fill up your tanks before you come as they have limited unleaded gas and the closest diesel is 30 miles away in Big Bend NP. Closest groceries are in Alpine 75 miles away.
This was an okay overnight RV park. The owners weren't in when I checked in but they drove by and greeted me later. RV park is a large gravel rectangle with a few sprigs of grass typical of the high desert. Rigs are about 20 feet apart which would normally be acceptable. However, there is very limited parking so everyone squeezes their RV in between rigs. That makes the park feel very tight and confined. Camp WiFi worked well. Verizon MIFI was 3/4 bars. ATT signal was 4/5 bars. Unfortunately, we were here on windy days and a thick layer of gravel dust coated everything. The owners could mitigate this dust if they paved the perimeter of the camp. You'd have to pave West Texas to get rid of it entirely!
Dyess AFB just opened their FamCamp last summer. They have 18 concrete pads that are approximately 45' long and very wide. Sites are nicely spaced with about 20' of grass between each one. All roads are paved and it's easy in/out. Each site has full hookups including cable. When I checked in, I was told the cable was out at my site but I think it was just a temp thing. Each site has a picnic table and outdoor grill. There is ample parking and light at night, plus you are on the base with other military & retirees so security is no concern. WiFi worked sporadically, but I got a great signal on my Verizon WiFi. ATT showed 3/5 bars & LTE signal. The camp has a small pay laundry and small shower/bathroom facility. They do take reservations, but the site I was told to go to on the phone was occupied. Luckily, there were two open sites so I got one. I don't think they have tight control on reservations versus available spots and folks are used to just pulling into any open spot at FamCamps. There are 6 concrete pads adjacent to the camp that I presume they use for dry camping overflow. I thought $35 a night was pretty steep given they have no other amenities like playground, pool, dog walk, propane, or camp store. But their weekly rate of $130 seemed fair if you are staying that long. I rated the park lower due to high price and lack of amenities compared to other camps in that price range.
Very nice park! The attraction is watching the barge traffic from the banks of the Mississippi. You can build your fire right on the banks. Nice long sites on level concrete or gravel. The park doesn't offer many amenities. Nothing for kids to do beyond a hiking trail or fishing. The free laundry is a cool perk. Follow the camp directions and it's easy to get there. Earlier posters fretted over the road going into the park but it's wide enough for 2 RVs to pass and only bumpy for 1/4 mile; no issues. Strong Verizon and good ATT signal.
Previous reviewer is spot on. This is an overnight CG for those passing through. Nothing fancy but certainly acceptable for big rigs and economical at winter rate. Verizon & ATT had good signals. I got satellite reception at my site. Camp wifi was weak.
Good clean campground as close to Chicago as you can get. Must be a GS member or purchase membership to stay here. They prefer you to call a few days beforehand but accept drive ins if they have room. Wifi worked well. Dust wasn't an issue as it rained several times during our stay. Rates are $36/day, $217/week, $750/month (no metered elec). Both Verizon and ATT had strong signals. I've visited this CG several times and they continue to make small improvements. We'll be back!
Excellent KOA and we've stayed at a bunch of them. We saw many improvements like new decks & gravel at the cabins, new lawn furniture at premium sites, new carpet on mini-golf. It's obvious that the owners are taking care of this campground. Free Wi-Fi worked well. They also have cable TV and open skies in some sites for satellite. Pull thrus are easy in/out. Nice wide paved camp road for back in sites and no dust. My only complaint would be naturally sandy soil so we had to bathe our dog a lot to keep fleas off. Friendly staff. With Traverse City nearby and many kid friendly things here, this could be a destination campground. It's off season so rates are cheaper. Both Verizon and ATT had strong signals.
Expensive for a KOA but that's because of the location. 50Amp pull thrus are nicely spaced and perhaps 80' long. Pull thrus are level side to side but incline front to back. All roads are gravel and sites are gravel or grass. Well laid out campground with easy in/out. Cable was extra $$. Many sites were good for satellite. ATT signal was weak but Verizon was strong. Fellow who checked me in was not personable and I never saw any staff beyond that so I couldn't call them friendly. Nice game room.
An okay overnight or short stop but this is a campground in decline. The owner is very friendly but her husband passed away and now she is trying to sell the campground. She keeps it well manicured with flowers throughout. They have seven 100 foot-long pull thrus with FHU and easy in/out access plus 4 short back ins. There are also 9 mobile homes on site some of which are empty and for sale. Campground has strong Wi-Fi and cable TV. Road noise is a constant issue as trucks frequently jake brake down the small hill. It's better at night but never completely gone. Add in a couple of trains a day on the track that runs beside the campground. Nothing for kids beyond a horseshoe pit, small swing set, and basketball hoop. Verizon Wi-Fi was strong but ATT signal was weak.
Good quiet campground along peaceful portion of Lake Michigan. They advertise to stay here and visit Door County peninsula to the north, but if you do, you'll get tired of the drive to Door County attractions pretty quick. Sites are level and grass with nicely packed gravel roads. Big rigs will fit, but my site was only 45' long so I had to park the pickup elsewhere. There are some things for kids including the pool, playground, horseshoes, and volleyball. This park used to be a KOA. If sites were longer, I would rate it higher. Verizon Wi-Fi was 4G and ATT signal was 2-3 bars. Friendly staff.
Very quiet and peaceful location only a few miles from Door County attractions. Not a lot of amenities beyond a small pool and playground. As previously noted, they put most big rigs in 3 pull-through rows. These rows are perhaps 50 feet long and 25 feet apart; a little too tightly packed. The campground has some nicely shaded back-in sites with full hook ups and an area for smaller rigs with 30 amp and no sewer. ATT phones beware -- no service. Verizon worked great. No cable TV, but some pull-thru sites could get satellite TV. Very friendly staff.
Overall an excellent park that is a little pricey. If you are coming here on an in-season weekend with kids, I'd say it's worth the price. On the weekend that we were here, they had a fantastic fireworks show honoring their 20th anniversary. Amenities include weekend activities, nice swimming pool & hot tub, multiple playgrounds, disc golf, horseshoes, and more. During the week, the park is very quiet. Half the park is seasonals in a separate section from the transients. The park uses a water truck to calm the dust on the gravel roads and I liked that! Sites are well spaced and easy in/out. Some have an incline going into/out of the site but it's no big deal. There are way too many golf carts running around especially on weekends. They don't offer a weekly discount beyond the daily 10% GS discount. Both Verizon & ATT reported 4G and I got satellite reception from my site, although many sites would be blocked by trees.
I concur with recent reviews. This KOA isn't bad, but we've seen much better. It's dusty with all gravel roads and sites. They host activities on weekends and have a nice fishing pond, playground, and pool. Easy in/out for big rigs. Verizon Wi-Fi worked well. When I checked in, the staff told me their bathrooms weren't clean due to swimmers tracking water in. That's just making excuses for not cleaning enough or fixing the problem with floor mats. This was a nice stop to visit the State Fair or local area for a few days.
This is one of the nicest RV resorts we've stayed in! Has everything we look for including plenty of room between level big rig sites, easy in/out, and tons of things for the kids to do. Their rates are steep but they discount for GS and everything is included including paddleboats, mini-golf, canoes, fishing, pool, and rec equipment. The mini-golf course was in good condition; a rarity among RV parks. There are activities for all age ranges. Some sites are heavily shaded while others give satellite access. The swimming pool was much larger than most parks and in excellent shape as well. We loved this RV park!
Previous reviews are still spot on. This is a good park for families with kids under 12. Almost all activities are aimed at young kids and there's plenty for them to do. However, the park is expensive as they have to pay a larger staff, plus you pay extra for pets and extra cars, both of which irritate me. Arcade games, pool tables, lunch with Yogi, and some crafts are pay for use too. The park is staffed by local youth who do a good job running all the activities. I only saw one older adult behind the registration desk. Bathrooms needed cleaning. Sites are mostly back-ins among the trees with no satellite reception and no cable TV. Ours had a broken sewer connection and some had no sewer caps. Several sites are big rig compatible, but some trees need trimming and brush the top of tall rigs. The camp generally needed refreshing. If you don't have kids and are just looking for a quiet campsite, I rate this camp a 3 as it's way too expensive if you aren't using the activities. Wristband system is annoying as they fall off in the pool. We'd only stay here again if our young grandkids were with us.
We've visited 60 different campgrounds across the US and Canada this past year. I hereby declare Leisure Lake as the dustiest campground in America! Unless it has recently rained, the dust off the gravel roads is horrible. But other than that, and low water pressure, this is an okay CG given its close proximity to Chicago. I agree with recent reviewers on their comments. Weekly rate is $217 for a 50 Amp site. We'll return since there are very few options in suburban Chicago. Be polite to the staff and they will be civil to you.
Bare bones military FamCamp, but if you are using them, you expect that. You get W/S/E and a small bathhouse. Sites are nicely paved and pretty close to level with adequate spacing between sites for big rigs with slide outs. Grass needed mowing but funds are tight so the base pays minimal attention to the Fam Camp. Despite some vacant sites, I'd recommend reservations since you have to find outdoor rec to pay for your site if you didn't make one and pay in advance. More info on this FamCamp and more can be found at www.militarycampgrounds.us. We'd stay here again.
Concur with previous poster; however, we had no power issues. Very nice KOA. New sites have no shade but they did have some available shaded sites. Odd thing about the park is the pool and office are near all the seasonals while the short termers are a long distance away. But I saw the staff ferrying families to the pool on golf carts. They strictly enforce visitor policies including extra charges. Easy in/out for big rigs. Camp WiFi worked okay and Verizon worked great on 4G. Price shown is holiday rate before KOA discount.
Very nice campground in rolling NY hills. Plenty of stuff for kids to do including 2 heated pools, mini golf, pedal carts, etc. Sites were well laid out with plenty of space. Big rig sites on both grass or gravel. Yes, roads were a little muddy from heavy rain as previous poster noted, but it was mud over gravel so no real issue traversing. I had no issues getting my 40' 5W in and out. Strong Verizon and ATT signals. Only thing I didn't like is they require everyone to wear an armband. Price shown is before GS discount. If they were $10 cheaper, I'd give them a 10.
Excellent campground! We stayed here over the busy pre-July 4th weekend. The staff hosted tons of activities for both kids and adults. Kids love the pool and beach/pond. Big rigs should heed the directions on their web site to avoid steeper hills. Only a handful of sites are big rig friendly so get a reservation. Some big rig sites are only 30A too. They don't sell propane & they charge $2/day for extra vehicles which irritates me. Otherwise, great family destination to just kick back and relax. Rate varies by day of week but they offer GS discount.
Great campground on the edge of a good sized city with everything you need. Connects to 9-hole golf course and walking trail along the shore of Gulf of St Lawrence. They keep about 10 big rig sized pull throughs and 10 small back ins available for short term stays. Rest of park is filled with seasonals. But it's Canada and everyone was very friendly. All the shady sites were seasonal. Easy access for big rigs and nice wide, long sites with fire pits and picnic table. Wi-Fi and cable TV worked well. Playground for kids.
The best part of this campground is really strong Wi-Fi. There is nothing really bad or really good about this campground. They have five long pull-throughs with 30 amp power and no cable. Most of the back-ins have cable and the owners said some are 50 amp. Some sites are close together, perhaps 15 feet between RVs. I saw little for kids to do here. Gravel on roads and sites need updating with lots of mud when it rains. All sites slope side to the side. For the price, I expect more upkeep.
Outstanding campground in Fundy National Park! Hikes and sights kept us busy for several days. We stayed in Chignecto North in one of 10 pull thrus with full hookups including 50amp. We got partial Dish satellite reception from our heavily wooded site. Wifi is only available close to the transmitters at the entry station or bathrooms. The roads going to the park are heavily patched and rough. At present, the coastal road from Moncton to Alma is rougher than going to the park from the north on Highway 1 and 114. From earlier reviews I was concerned about the steep hill up from the Alma entrance to Chignecto but the climb was not that bad and I have a heavy RV. I like that you can see pictures of some of the sites as well as site dimensions on Fundy’s online reservation web site. Rate shown doesn't reflect additional park usage fee.
A typical RV park almost entirely filled with seasonals. Locals told me that there were few to no spots open to transients until recently. Owner recently put in about 25 back in spots with sewer, water, 30 amp in a large open grassy field with no shade. Sites have new gravel and are long enough for big rigs but narrow lanes of gravel connecting sites and lack of turn radius at corners forces you to drive over soft grass. These new sites are still a work in progress as the gravel needs to be firmed up to handle heavy RVs. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. About half of these new sites look fairly level and the rest have quite a bit of incline front to back. Bathrooms with showers are nearby although the shower wasn't clean and only had hot water so I couldn't adjust the temp. There is a small playground for kids. No cable TV, no free Wi-Fi. The few paved roads need serious repair both inside and going to the campground. Gorgeous views of the river from the campground. Per their web site, they don’t take reservations. Rate was $35 plus tax with no discounts. Overall a marginal overnight campground.
Overall, this is a great place to stay while exploring Bangor, central Maine, and/or Acadia National Park (1 hour away). Extra long pull thrus are nicely spaced. Unlike the previous poster, I had no problem adjusting in my site to get satellite service. Well manicured park with easy in/out access for big rigs. Most sites are level or close to level. Not much for kids to do though as they have no playground or pool. Amenities include free WiFi, cable TV, friendly staff, and small restaurant close by. Strong Verizon and ATT signals for both data and phone. A bonus is they offer Passport America 50% off rates except during peak season.
Overall a great campground in a central New Hampshire location! Amenities include a playground and pool for kids, cable TV, and free Wi-Fi. Many sites are big rig compatible. Some back ins are very long, perhaps 100 feet. The camp warns that low lying sites are prone to flash floods. Interior roads are gravel and only in fair condition. Sites are sand and gravel and well spaced from each other. ATT phones and data get no signal but Verizon worked well. Small up charge ($2) for 50 amp. They offer Good Sam and Passport America discounts.
Outstanding KOA--Founders Award winner given to top 10% of KOAs. They have everything--plenty of stuff for the kids to do, a variety of sites, activities on weekends, cable, WiFi, well stocked camp store & more. The weekend I was there they had a live band and the campground was full with families. My only complaints are there is not much nearby and the KOA is pricy, charging even more on weekends. This KOA is a destination campground. Weak ATT data signal, moderate Verizon data signal.
Very relaxing campground with friendly staff! Rural location with not much close by. Buy your groceries before you get here. Dirt & gravel roads raise dust. Sites are wide & well separated & well laid out. Many sites are big rig capable. Some sites have 50A but most are 30A. Owners are expanding 50A access. No sewer hookups but they do have a dump by the camp store. Only bathroom and showers are at camp store. Outlying areas have porta-potties. Cable TV worked well. Camp wi-fi was spotty. Verizon data barely got 1 bar & ATT data was Edge network with minimal coverage. Had pool, dog run, hiking trail, & playgrounds for kids. Rate shown is before discount--Good Sam, Passport America, AAA, and others accepted.
Good clean and quiet park in PA hills. Must drive several miles of twisty little roads to get there, then one steep hill inside campground-just take it slow. About 8 miles from nearest grocery store. Most of park are seasonal sites. Back-ins and pull thrus are big rig suitable. Sites are not level, but most looked close enough. ATT voice & data weak and Verizon 4G. Camp Wi-Fi and cable worked fine. You must haul your own trash to the bottom of the hill. No mail pickup. No rate discounts except for weekly 1 night free.
Rate shown is before discounts. They also offer promotions on their web page. We got one night free so we averaged $40. Very nice campground just a couple of miles from central Gettysburg. Friendly staff, all the usual amenities of a 5-star campground. Several suitable back-ins for big rigs and a small number of pull through sites. Camp wifi worked & both Verizon & ATT had good signals.
Rates are $72-premium, $67-pull thru, $62-back in with no weekly or monthly rates. They offer 10% off for most clubs. This is an excellent park given the location on the Wash DC beltway. They have all the amenities including WiFi (spotty), pool, hot tub, dog runs, picnic tables, fire pits, on-site restaurant, & good RV store. Bus stops right in park to get to Metro then DC. . Road noise from nearby freeway varies from dull to loud roar depending on site. Sites are gravel and many are not level. Length & width of sites varies greatly with many that are too short for big rigs or too close together. First site they gave us was on a tight corner & tough to get into but they allowed us to switch to a better site with no hassle. I would NOT pay extra for a premium site since the only benefit is a propane grill. Premium sites are no longer or easier to get into than any other site. At this price point, I expect wide long level sites. Both Verizon & ATT had 4G signals. Lot of trees so satellite access is site dependent. Cherry Hill is the best place to stay to tour DC.
Rate is after KOA 10% discount. A little pricey but overall a very nice park. Easy in/out, nice long mostly level gravel pull-thrus. Most of their business is over-nighters. Cheapest propane I've seen lately at $2.89/gal. Road noise from I-95 as others have mentioned. Nice amenities like dog park & well stocked workout room. Camp Wi-Fi worked well. Both ATT & Verizon 4G signal and cable TV. Many trees so satellite iffy.
Nice campground relatively close to many things--Yorktown, Jamestown, VA beach, Norfolk, Kitty Hawk. Good gravel & paved interior roads and offers long, gravel pull-thru sites (mine was at least 75' long) and back-ins. Much of park has large trees while parts are out in the open. Easy in/out. Sites around lake filled with long-termers. No cable and satellite coverage will depend upon site. No park Wi-Fi, but both Verizon & ATT got 4G. Great park for kids with beach, swimming, fishing, and room to play. Not much traffic on adjacent road so park was quiet. Restaurants available and Walmart about 15-20 min away. Good destination park for this area.
Rate shown is before Passport America or Good Sam discount. Good clean RV park just far enough off of I-95 to be quiet; friendly staff. My pull-through was 60x30 gravel with a picnic table and concrete patio. Park Wi-Fi worked well, Verizon showed 4G but had poor connection. AT&T had good 4G connection. They had cable and a clear line of sight for satellite TV. Swimming pool, playground, wide enough gravel roads, pet run. Maybe 30% were long term RVs but they didn't detract. Overall a great park. I wish the pull-throughs were a little longer with more room to park toad.
This review is for the 66 paved sites and not the grass group camping across the road. No discounts on rate. Good clean RV park with very few amenities. Very easy in/out, all paved, 70x25' level concrete back-in sites with full hookups. Negatives: no picnic table, no fire rings, no wifi, no cable, no over the air channels received, satellite okay except the sites by the trees, nothing for kids to do, no pet area, Walmart & some fast food a few miles away but not much else. Grill available when service shop is open. Verizon 3G data, ATT 4G. River on edge of camp might be good for fishing. Overall, a good place if your intention is to explore Asheville & the Blueridge and just sleep here.
Good Sam park--10% off rate shown. Excellent campground--park hadn't been reviewed in a while, but it's still a great find! Stays mostly full of long termers but they were friendly with clean sites. Six paved, fairly level 70' pull through sites with good spacing were available for short stays so definitely call ahead. Each had picnic table, fire pit, paved patio. All back-ins were gravel sites. Pull throughs were good for satellite, but much of park is not with pines and small trees throughout park. Free wi-fi worked well; no cable TV. Twisty little road getting into park and twisty, bumpy paved interior roads, but I had no problem getting my 40 foot 5th wheel in/out. Very quiet both day & night. Recently renovated bathhouse was immaculate, nice laundry room. Very friendly owners came to check on us and give us info on local area. 10 minutes from Spartanburg & everything you need. Good 4G signal on both Verizon & ATT.
Excellent RV park. Rate shown is before GS discount. They advertise as the closest campground to Charleston--maybe 25 minutes to downtown with traffic. Walmart, etc. is 10 minutes. As previous reviewer mentioned, they use TengoInternet which is very slow. But I got 4G connections from Verizon on my MiFi. They have every kind of site from grass to pea gravel to paved. Mine was pea gravel and double wide, easily long enough for my 40' RV and tow. Ask for site in the open to get satellite. Park is well laid out with ample room between sites. Some road noise on far north end of park; otherwise quiet enough. A previous reviewer mentioned speed bumps--whining in my opinion. We'd certainly stay here again.
Concur with earlier posts. Price shown is before KOA discount. Good clean KOA. Positives: pretty lake view with swans, lots of trees, 65x25 foot level pull through sites, cable, pool (in season), game room, pancake breakfast (weekends), 25 minutes from downtown Savannah. Negatives: paved interior roads can be narrow for big rigs depending on how people park, hard-packed sandy sites with very little grass in campground, most sewer ports were 6-8 inches above ground level meaning your hose will not drain well. We'd stay here again.
Based on weekly rate of $240 w/tax. This campground is a 10 except for airplane noise. Airplanes don't bother us, and they rarely come over after 11 pm. Has everything we look for -- all paved, level sites, cable, good wifi, easy in/out for big rigs, pool, fishing pond. Love the double wide paved sites; can park tow vehicle & toad beside RV. Sites are very wide with grass between. Convenient to large shopping area one exit away & weekend flea market. Beaches 30 minutes away. Great place to spend a week or month.
Bare bones self-contained RVs only. The good: easy access from I-75, easy in/out 70' long gravel sites, 30' site width, paved roads, almost no permanents, cable TV. The bad: sites very unlevel side to side (more than 3 inches). Some sites unlevel front to back. Gravel sites are overgrown with weeds. Camp host says they plan to pave sites next summer. No other services beyond hookups -- no pet runs, no bathrooms, no pool, no playground, bare bones. Okay if you are passing through for a night or two. Rate shown is after tax -- 10% off for Good Sam.
PA rate is $17.50 for 2 nights; also GS for 10% off. A nice RV park with most everything. I liked the nice long 70 foot pull thru but they are only about 20' wide. Still easy in/out for big rig. Family friendly with playground and large pool (in season). Many sites were good for satellite. Camp Wi-Fi worked well as did Verizon & ATT. Friendly staff. Gravel sites with concrete slab for picnic table. Negatives were no cable but you can get networks OTA, Tains passing 3-4 a day and sometimes late at night. I slept through them but my wife woke up. We'd certainly stay here again!
$19/night Passport America; Good Sam 10% off. Good place for a few nights. Nothing for kids to do. Gravel roads, level very long paved sites--mine was 80 ft x 25 ft. Very easy in/out. Good cable TV, park Wi-Fi worked well, trees on edge of park blocked my satellite. Pet run. Many permanents so perhaps only 5-10 slots available each night--call ahead. About 5 miles to stores/restaurants. Strong Verizon 4G; slightly weaker AT&T signal. We'd stay here again.
Rate reflects GS discount. Clean park with friendly staff. CG Wi-Fi worked well (almost the exception rather than the rule). Sites are 60ft x ~25 ft with grass in between. There's a parking area nearby for toads, etc that won't fit. Roads & sites are paved with some muddy spots after rain. Some sites slope quite a bit -- I couldn't quite level my 5th wheel fore & aft. Pool in season. Cable TV + several OTA stations. A bargain given the rate. Great place to tour historic Vicksburg for a few nights.
Overall, a great RV park! Like others said, it's a little hard to find the entrance the first time. Don't turn on FM2493 slightly south or you'll drive 3 miles to a narrow turn-around. My rig is 59' nose-tail and I managed the interior CG turns, but I wouldn't do it in anything longer. Pull through sites were about 75' long, and maybe 30' wide. Heated pool and hot tub a plus. No cable TV. All concrete roads and concrete parking strips. Lots of long termers with families here but they were a friendly bunch. 10% off rate shown for Good Sam. A good place to visit Tyler.
Good clean campground -- not much around Waco to pick from. Friendly staff, free continental breakfast (nice touch). Level gravel sites with paved roads, easy in/out, sites about 25' wide along pull through rows but some are wider. Relatively spartan -- no picnic tables, no concrete pads, Wi-Fi is pay but 4G Verizon & AT&T signals work. Situated on I-35 so some road noise if that bothers you. Lots of construction on I-35 right now but that will get better with time. Many permanents in park but they are along the edges and way in the back. I thought $32 (after discount) was a little much for what you get. Weekly rate is a whopping $4 less than 7 daily rates.
Average KOA for amenities. Gravel roads and sites; our site was easy in/out but some were a little tighter. Site width was fine. Negatives: I got lousy wireless reception trying both ATT & Verizon. Camp WiFi was ineffective too. A billion midges (non-biting mosquito-looking insects) covered our RV from dusk to dawn. Don't try driving around dusk or dawn, or they will coat your windshield. These bugs are everywhere near the lake in summer, and not KOA's fault. Otherwise good locale to visit Crater Lake.
Good KOA. We stayed for a week. Gravel roads, gravel level sites, easy in/out for big rigs. Place stays pretty busy with lots of rigs coming/going. A few permanent RVs didn't detract. Good location not far outside of Grand Junction. Friendly staff.
Relatively small RV park with an upper row and lower row of RVs. Easy in/out though, with all pull-through sites on upper row. Level gravel sites, gravel roads, easy access to interstate. Price reflects PPA discount. Friendly staff: ask where to go eat and they direct you to a hole in the wall restaurant on the way to Devils Tower with great burgers! Not a whole lot in Sundance otherwise. We got a light snow here in early Oct. Good place to stay for a few days when visiting that remote area.
Nice KOA: standard amenities; friendly staff. We practically had the park to ourselves some nights, as it was late in the season. Sites and roads are gravel; some sites would be a challenge to get level but ours was okay. Situated in pine forest on a hillside with not much more than a gas station for 5 miles. Great place for a week to visit Black Hills/Rushmore/Hot Springs. Verizon Wi-Fi worked fine.
Very nice well-groomed park. All paved, many pull-throughs, level sites, easy-in/out. Good location a couple miles from interstate but not too far outside Des Moines. Only oddities: no discounts; no cable; park office is a mile or so away from the park itself (as described on web page). Long-termers kept their sites up well, so nothing looked trashy. The staff said they stay pretty full, so call ahead.
For the Chicago area, there aren't many RV park options. But Leisure Lake is a fine park as long as you are a Passport America/Escapees/Good Sam member (required). They don't take reservations, but you can call and verify if they have openings. I saw a lot of grumbling in other reviews about the staff, but I had no issues. Just follow the rules and enjoy your stay. Can be noisy if your site is close to the Interstate.
Superb campground. Friendly staff, great location, everything you want/need for RV camping. My lesson learned. Follow their website directions to get here, to avoid a 10% hill grade. Sites are pretty close to level despite the hilly location. Definitely stay here.
Can't say enough about this great RV park. Great location to visit DFW; well kept park with friendly staff. They have a variety of sites depending upon what you need. Many trees so satellite reception may be iffy, but they have cable and many local channels over the air. They can be busy so get a reservation. Rate posted is based on monthly rate plus electricity.
Worst RV park we've stayed in (out of 33 parks so far). Rude clerk at check in. Extremely tight getting in/out due to narrow sites and vehicles parked on rows. Park was crammed with permanents who make the park look dumpy. It was so bad, we paid for 2 nights but left after first night. I'd recommend you go anywhere but here!
