Nice spacious campground that is very big rig friendly. Long sites with paved patios. Sites are level. Electricity and water are good as is wi-fi and cable. Hosts are very friendly and have really improved this campground since they bought it five years ago. My only complaint is that the park needs more gravel. It rained while we were here, and we found outselves surrounded by water. Otherwise, a great place, and we would return.

What a delightful place. Gorgeous, well-stoned RV park full of old-growth oak trees but, yet, we were still able to get our satellite. Spaces are generous and level, electricity, cable, and water were great, and wi-fi was outstanding. Several older ladies run this park and they are so pleasant. We didn't want to unhook but ran out of soft drinks, and one of them went to the store for us at no charge! You don't find many parks like this anymore. We will definitely return.

Very attractive park with nice, long paved pull-throughs and back-ins on lake. Sites are level and electricity and water pressure are good. Only problem with this park is that the overnight sites are out of range of wi-fi and the wi-fi is terrible.

Like many campgrounds, this one seems to have forgotten what made it successful in the first place--a clean facility with good value. They have gone up to $38-40 per night, and have now added a fee for wi-fi, a ridiculous $4.00 per day for ridiculously slow wi-fi. It's no bargain anymore and, as I sit here at look out at the hundreds of vacant spaces, I must wonder where their head is. Don't come here. It is an overpriced, aging park, that no longer is reasonably priced for what you get.

A gem of a campground. Beautiful landscaping, neat as a pin, long pull-through sites, good water, electric and cable, and fantastic high-speed wi-fi. This park reflects the owners care and pride in the place. Outstanding for a night or a few days. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Very neat and clean campground with long pull-thru sites. Much better than the typical KOA. Sites are well-stoned and level. Wi-fi is good, electric and water are good. An excellent park to which we shall return.

Absolutely gorgeous RV park with lush green grass and beautiful trees. Level, very-long pull thru sites, good water pressure, good electricity, good cable. A very unique and useful dog run. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

A new park with all paved sites, good water pressure, good electricity, and at a bargain price of $20 nightly. However, there are some problems. Landscaping is almost totally lacking and the park is stark, wi-fi is very, very spotty. And, while they serve excellent ribs in the clubhouse, pull-through sites are on the very back of the parking lot, making it impossible for handicapped people to go to the rib dinner or to the clubhouse. Still, a very good value for the money.

This is, in our opinion, one of the top KOAs in the entire United States. It sits high on a hill overlooking breaktaking mountains and valleys. The staff (of which there are many) are constantly working on the park, the grass, the sites, and everything else. Sites are large and level and are well stoned, electricity is dependable, and wi-fi is outstanding. The staff could not be nicer. My only complaint is the water pressure, which could be stronger. Still, one of the very, very best parks we've ever seen.

This used to be a really nice campground with heavily gravelled streets, neatly mown grass, and a reasonable daily price. It became a KOA about three years ago and, since then, almost no gravel has been put on the road or the sites. When it rains the roads and the sites become a quagmire. The roads throughout the park are rutted and full of holes. When it is dry here, it is a dustbowl. Grass, which used to be mown frequently, now gets knee high to a horse before it is attended to. In short, now that they are a KOA, they charge much more, but they have let the place go to pot. Wi-fi was spotty. Would not stay here again.

This park is on a slippery slope to extinction. If you manage to get your big rig through the small entrance, you will surely shake your fillings out as you past through it. It wasn't like that last year, but has washed out. The wi-fi is absolutely horrible. Last year, we would get around it by hooking onto the signal from another nearby campground, but this campground has caught on and now requires a security code. When we got here, the grass on our site was 12 inches high. When we left, two weeks later, it had not been mowed. It appears that the park may have been sold or changed management since many of the permanent models have been put up for sale. Overall, a bad, bad park, that continues to go downhill rapidly. Stay away. We will never stay here again.

This park has a charm all its own. Views are gorgeous, from huge mountains on four sides to a rapid river on the backside, full of wildlife. The folks who run it have obviously put in a ton of sweat equity, making fairly level sites with a "homey" look. No sewers, but a convenient dump station. Wi-Fi is extremely expensive and slow, $6.00 per night. The owners explain that, in order to get Wi-Fi way out here, they had to install and pay for their own satellite dish monthly and then contract with Nomad, who keeps $5.75 per night and gives the park 25-cents a night. This is not a cookie-cutter park but is certainly adequate, especially in view of the scarcity of parks along Highway 70 between Denver and Grand Junction. We would stay here again.

Our favorite park in Moab. Nice level sites. Good TV, good Wi-Fi. Great views, and not dusty. Beautiful trees and great views from most sites. Our only complaint is that office personnel can be very rude sometimes. Still, we always stay here when in Moab. We would do so again.

A truly outstanding RV resort with caring and decicated management and workers. Long, wide, very nicely landscaped sites with plenty of green space between. Good cable and good wi-fi. Excellent water pressure and electricity. We visited all the other RV parks in Montrose and, without doubt, this is the best. We would stay here again for a day, week, month, or season.

This is a delightful, well-manicured RV park with extremely long spaces (ours was 95 feet), wide paved streets, beautiful views, and everything you could want in an RV Park. Others have commented on pipeline workers who reside in the park and there are some but management insists that their sites be clean and neat, and they are. I would rate this park a 10 across the board except for two reasons: Their wi-fi service costs a ridiculous $5.00 daily, is through what is arguably the worst RV park internet provider in the county, TengoInternet. The service is very poor despite the extremely high price. The other drawback is the location of the water connection. It is below ground and you literally have to stand on your head to connect your hose. For these reasons I drop them from a 10 to an 8.

We made a mistake by camping here in May. Snow and freezing rain every day for 10 days. Miserable. But that is not the campground's fault. The problems with this park, however, that are their fault include only one garbage dump for 365 sites. You have to drive or walk a long way to get rid of your garbage. The wi-fi is also their fault. It is by Tengonet, frequently on our "worst wi-fi" list and, although we got good wi-fi with an internal booster, most of the folks in other sites in the park said their reception was terrible. At our request, we were parked right at the base of the tower and our experience was not the norm as I understand it. Also, this park is slowly becoming a park model RV park, with wooden cabins appearing in droves where RV sites used to be. We were surprised, also, at the number of these park models that were used and were for sale. Still, all in all, probably the best RV park on I-70 between Denver and Grand Junction, Colorado. We would stay here again, but not in May.

KOA gives out an annual award to the best KOAs, called the President's Award. I would nominate this campground for the Janitor's Award, but I don't want to insult the janitor. We made our reservations far in advance but, when we arrived here, they told us we might have trouble getting into our site because of overhanging limbs. When we got to the site, we were able to dodge the limbs but that wasn't the only thing we had to dodge. This campgroud is so tight, and so jam packed, we were dodging other vehicles along the roadway and, we we got to our site, we had to dodge literally a year's supply of dog crap (a big dog). Then we went to hook up the sewer hose and notice that the sewer connection was at least 40 feet back of our motorhome. We then turned on the water and it was chocolate brown. (We remembered another camper saying the sewer was "bubbling over" at this place and that got our thoughts going.) Then, as we were finally getting settled in, we noted airplanes coming right over the top of our motorhome. Seems we were in the glide path for a local airport. We thought we had seen the worst, but we were wrong. That night we were treated to a symphony--a symphony of truck noises from the interstate on one side of the campground, and a railroad track with frequent trains on the other side of the campground. If you have a choice between camping in the middle of a collapsed septic tank and this campground, pick the septic tank. You will like it better.

Nice enough KOA. Long pull through sites and park is well gravelled. Good wi-fi and good cable tv. My major complaint, and I marked them down signficantly for this, is the hours. The office is closed 19 or every 24 hours, open only five hours daily. If you want to register, or resolve a problem, of buy something you need, you are out of luck. Who closes a business 19 hours out of every 24? Ridiculous.

This is a beautiful new park with wide paved streets and long paved sites. It has nice landscaping but virtually no trees and none planted. Very good wi-fi and cable. I rank the park a 9 for two reasons: (a) When you arrive, it is very confusing. About 100 yards after you enter the park entrance, you see a brick building but no signs other than one pointing to the RV park. Many people go into the brick building (a concrete firm) to register, and are directed to drive 100 yards and use their cell phones to call a number and the gate will be activated and let you in. Better signage would be helpful. (b)they have a whiz-bang no-freeze water connection that requires an undergraduate degree in engineering, a graduate degree in hydraulics, and a post graduate degree in physics. Honestly, we struggled with this sytem for half-hour and went to the office where an employee came out and struggled for quite a while. Very complicated and very user unfriendly. We stayed at a park last year with a similar system where the park owners were suing the manufacturer. Yet, despite this, we would still stay here again.

This is a gorgeous RV park with beautiful trees that are well-trimmed and spaced far enough apart so that they are not a problem for ingress and egress. Wi-fi is good, and management is excellent. Only problem with this park is that it is very hilly and sites are not terraced, so it is almost impossible to find a level site. Still, we would stay here again on an overnight basis.

Not your typical KOA, somewhat better, but not much. Sites are not level. Park is nicely treed with an excellent fishing lake. Good wi-fi. Personnel are very helpful but a bit careless. We filled up with propane the morning we left and, down the road, we noted our refrigerator had shut down and would not restart on gas. I checked the propane tank, and they had forgotten to turn it back on when they finished refuelling. Still, I would stay there again were it not for the ridiculous charge of $44 a night. This park is worth not a dollar more than $30 per night.

If you can only stay at one campground in the entire United States this year, pick this one, a small (18 sites plus cabins) campground with owners with hearts as big as Texas and Alaska combined. Every site is beautiful. Every site is level. Every site is paved. The Wi-Fi and cable TV are outstanding and over the top. Every site offers full hook-ups and the hosts truly go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. The campground is centrally located to allow visits to Helen (an absolutely gorgeous Alpine community you will not believe), and also short day trips to the truly remarkable mountain towns of Dahlonega, Blue Ridge, Ellijay and others, with their shops, restaurants, and sights. There is so much to do here that you will be pushed to do it all in a week. Whether you are empty nesters, or if you have children, there is something for everyone. This will be a campground that we measure all others against, both big and small, in the future!

Typical KOA ripoff. The park is old and outdated and, although they have built a new section, you must go through the very narrow bumpy roads of the old part to get to the new part. The new part of the park is unlevel and is basically a parking lot with no trees. They charge you $2.00 daily for cable tv and a ridiculous $5.00 daily for the worst internet I have ever encountered. When you are finally able to get on their internet wi-fi, the first thing you see is a message that bandwith controls are in effect (translation: it is slower than a blind turtle walking in reverse.) I would never stay here again.

Park is situated in a grove of beautiful old, spanish moss draped trees, and is quite pretty. Unfortunately, sites are very narrow and turn spaces are tight. While it is close to I-75, traffic noise is not a problem. Cable TV is very limited and there is a charge, and wi-fi is very weak. We would not stay there again.

Overall a good park with long, wide spaces and easy ingress and egress. I was, however, a little ticked off when, after I had reserved a specific site months in advance, they moved me to a spot at the very end of the park next to the duck pond (try dodging duck crap all day). The wi-fi is with the worst internet service provider in the industry (Tengo), and it worked only half the time yet it cost $5.00 daily--what a ripoff.

This park is on a beautiful lake and is quite cozy with all the trees and flowers. However, do not stay here if you want Wi-Fi (it is lousy), if you need to receive satellite, if you want a place that has good ingress and egress, and if really tight turns and tight spots bother you. Also, if you are seeking a level site, this is not the place for you. The folks here are quite nice, and the park is fine for small rigs, tents, and popups but, if you have anything 35 feet or longer, forget it.

Earlier ratings gave this campground a number of 10s.Things have changed. Once, it was run by a partnership of Stormy and Andy.Stormy has gone and Andy has the friendliness of a cobra with PMS and the attitude of a skunk on steroids. We braved the road up to the campground (and it was scary) but, when we got to the top, we found one of the most beautiful campgrounds with the most beautiful views we have ever seen, especially from Sites P1-P5. Our delight, however, was soon diminished by a haugty woman (Andy) who informed us we were two hours ahead of check in time and, even though the park was empty, she would allow us to park on our reserved site,but not turn on the water or electricity, or make the sewer connection for two hours "because you are not paying for it." We had reservations for a week, and the whole week ws ruined by this woman. In addition, we saw two other couples that also arrived early (nobody told us check in was at 3 p. m.) and, since check out was noon, we assumed, like the other couples,l we could get there shortly after noon. These other couples were also chewed out and were very, very angry.To add insult to injury, the manger gave us a "welcome bag" with a stale candy bar and outdated coupons to purchase paper prouducts at a store. A great campground ruined by lousy management. Stay somewhere else.

This could be a wonderful campground, but it is not. The pros: Campground is in a beautiful valley surrounded by mountains, and is on a very relaxing bubbling stream. The staff is almost entirely composed of elderly women who are absolute angels. Cons: The most desirable sites in the campground are on the creek, but these sites are so short that our motorhome was literally hanging over the creek and there was almost no room to park our car. Yet these sites are almost all out of the range of the one wi-fi antenna. This park has one small antenna in the middle of its 12-acres, and the signal is good only for about one-third of the sites (the owner-manager says "if you want wi-fi, drive over to the base of the tower." The park is jammed up like few we have seen before. Bumper to bumper, side to side, and very tight with difficult parking. All facilities are miles and miles away. In short, the park could be a wonderful place but it is not, primarily due to the pig-headed attitude of the manager.

An excellent campground with very genial hosts. The folks who own and manage this park are obviously plowing their profits back into the park. It is cozy, up-to-date, with excellent sites. Only negative here is the wi-fi is often dicey and frustrating. Otherwise, a great campground. Much better than the typical KOA and, in fact, this campground is modelled after the Billings original KOA, only it is about $30 per night cheaper. You will like it here.

The good news: This campground is convenient to the delighful town of Shipshewana, offers very long pull through sites, and has clean and neat facilities. The bad news: The roads become swamps when it rains, sites are not level, and most sites do not have enough gravel. Most importantly, this unpaved, muddy,second rate park, with unlevel sites, charges a ridiculous $4.00 per day for wi-fi, and you must sign on each and every day you are here. Stay in Elkhart or somewhere else. It ain't worth it.

Probably one of the top three RV resorts in America. Everything about this place is first class from the beautiful landscaping to the gorgeous lakes to the immaculate condition of the facilities. It is truly an outstanding park. This is our third year here, and we will be back. However, we will NOT use Behr RV Service, the repair service that is recommended by this park. Very unreliable.

This park remains the nicest KOA in the entire system, in our opinion, but you now pay more and get less. They have dropped the daily newspaper delivered to your site and switched over their own former excellent free Wi-Fi system to a free system operated by an outside firm, but it is not nearly as good. Despite all this they have bumped their rates up to almost $60 per night for a full-hookups pull through site. My gosh, this ain't California. And, my biggest gripe with them, is that they recommend an outfit called Ranch RV as an on-site repair firm. I don't know if they get a kickback or what, but this firm is bad...bad...bad. They totally ripped us off. Good park, but consider the price and the problems.

This is a really nice, big-rig friendly park and, although it is small, it is landscaped beautifully with long level sites and all hookups. More importantly, it has some of the friendliest and most conscientous managers I have encountered. We had a problem with getting their Wi-Fi and, rather than shrug their shoulders, they were all over it, coming over to our coach twice to make sure everything was working properly, resetting their Wi-Fi, etc. Very, very accommodating people who care. Yes, the park is near a railroad and near a major highway but, unless you are sleeping in a tent or popup, your coach or trailer walls will do a good job of keeping out the sound. Only one train came through when we were here and that was at 8:30 in the morning. I would stay here again.

This park is owned and managed by a delightful, courteous, and helpful couple, but it desperately needs attention. The roads are dirt, the sites are dirt with little rock,and many sites require that hoses and cords be run under the RV to the wrong side. We were there on a weekday and the one dumpster in the park was overflowing onto the ground with garbage. No cable TV, and the WiFi is the worst I have every seen with only one antenna to serve a large park. The folks simply are not reinvesting into their park and it shows. Stay elsewhere.

An outstanding park that is run in a very businesslike manner. Very clean, great paved and level sites, easy ingress and egress. The sites are side by side and, in my opinion,have plenty room. The way the side by side sites are laid out provides the passenger side with a large grassy and tree area on most sites. This park compares favorably with most Outdoor Resorts parks we have been in. Would highly recommend it.

I spent a considerable amount of time trying to fairly and accurately describe this park. I have decided that the best way is to tell you a story: I grew up on a farm and we did not have an indoor toilet but, rather, an outhouse about 100 feet back of our home. Occasionally, I would look down into one of the holes in this outhouse (we were an upscale family--we had a two holer),and what I saw down there reminds me of this park. What a terrible, terrible place. I would not want my worst enemy to have to stay here. Put the petal to the metal and get away from this place as fast as you can.

Typical KOA. Dusty dirty roads and lightly gravelled sites that are difficult to get into and more difficult to get out of. Very tight. Bushes and trees are badly in need of trimming. Nice people, but vastly overpriced at $38.00 per night when it should be no more than $25.00. Only saving grace is the on-site restaurant which offers excellent food at reasonable prices. We would not, however, stay here again.

Like most KOAs, this place is grossly overcharging for its spaces. We werein one of the "deluxe patio sites" and it cost us $69.00 plus tax. What makes it deluxe? Its a gravel site (not paved), but with a patio, table, chairs, umbrella. Ridiculously high. But the people were nice and friendly. Would not stay here again at these prices.

Although this park is a bit tight, it is very well-maintained with well gravelled sites, good ingress and egress, level sites, and very, very friendly owners/managers.

After having spent a considerable amount of time in "parking lot" RV parks, this place is like winning the lottery. Beaufiful trees, wonderful flowers all around, green, well-maintained grass, wide, level sites, good power and water. The management is extremely friendly and helpful, and this place has to have the mother of all wi-fi systems: Five repeater towers spaced throughout this small park and two systems operating at all time in the event one goes down. This is a great place for an overnighter or for a long-term stay. This is a top park and you will like it here.

Still a nice park but they've gone over the top on pricing. In addition to a steep price they now charge for very poor, weak wi-fi. And, for a park this size in a cold climate, you would think they would have propane but they do not. When we were there they were about one-third empty, some of these vacancies I am sure is due to their new policy of you get less and pay more.

This park is a mixed bag. On the positive side, the folks who run it are very friendly, the sites on the river are to die for, the sites are level, the street is paved (although the sites are gravel), and the scenery is gorgeous as are the wildlife views (we saw three deer and two elk walking right in front of our motorhome the first two days we were here, and an otter in the river the next day). On the negative side, the entrance is a nightmare for big rigs if you take their recommended route on Riverside Drive. Instead, take the Morraine Street exit. Also, there is only one shower and one toilet to serve a large portion of the park down near the river, the wi-fi is absolutely horrible, and there is an extreme shortage of convenient dumpsters. I am writing this review on the wi-fi I am picking up from a neighboring campground. I would probably stay here again despite these problems.

This park is a joke. We had reservations and arrived here about 2 p. m. We saw a sign on the window stating that the office was closed. We saw a guy walking around the park with a garbage bag. We asked him if he worked here and he replied that he "helped out." He then retired to his motorhome. We sat here for two hours waiting for someone to come and register us. Finally, the guy who just "helped out" left his motorhome and opened the office. It is a nice park with long, but unlevel sites, but leaves a lot to be desired. The office hours are 9 to 11 a. m. and 4 to 5 p. m. The Wi-Fi is among the worst we have ever seen. We won't stay here again.

We accidentally posted this review to "Angel Lake", the site above this one on RV Park Reviews. This is the correct review for this park: Absolutely some of the friendliest folks we have ever met. When we pulled up in front of the office, the daughter of the owner, the owner, and his wife, all came out to greet us. The park is fairly new and has level sites with all hookups. It is nothing fancy, but it has the cleanest restrooms we have ever seen and the best free Wi-Fi we have encountered. Not much to do in Wells, but this is a superb overnight stop. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This is a very nice park with good paved level sites. It has excellent views of the mountains surrounding Reno, and friendly management. My only complaint is the wi-fi. On top of a $43.00 per night charge, they have the audacity to charge $9.00 for a one night wi-fi hookup. This is, by far, the most we have ever paid and will cause us to never stay at this campground again.

This place has gone through several ownerships and managements. Recently, KOA started managing it. (That's like injecting a sick patient with arsenic.) Anyway, the place is very, very remote with virtually nothing nearby. Sites are crowded, the cost is a ridiculous $82.50 per night. The only place to eat is the adjacent restaurant which is ridiculously expensive. The sites are not level, and it is not, in any way, a first class park although it is in a very pretty area. We would not stay here again.

This is a decent park but beware: The park shares a sign with a convenience store and, if you are not careful, you will miss it. Also, the convenience store clerk is the sign-in person for the RV park and the one I had could care less about me, my needs, or my reservation. She was only interested in what time she got off from work. I had reserved a site that would allow me to get satellite and I re-iterated this to the genius who checked us in. Guess what? She put us in a site with a huge tree over the coach although there were plenty of empty sites where satellite could be received. Overall, the park is okay but I would not stay here again because of the attitude of the clerk.

Typical KOA--overpriced to start with and nickel and dime charges in addition. Wi-Fi was average and was an extra $2.00 per day. Park is extremely dusty and sites are very, very unlevel. People who work at the park were nice, however. We would not stay here again if we had a choice.

Very neat RV park with wide streets, and wide and deep sites, most with excellent views. Park is well-stoned so dust is at a minimum. Good ingress and egress to the park. Wi-Fi was excellent although cable TV was fuzzy on many channels. Probably the best RV park in Moab. We would stay here again.

This is a very cozy park with beautiful old trees. The Durango and Silverton Railroad runs through the park, and offers a treat each time it comes through. Wi-Fi is good. Problems with this park are that sites are generally unlevel. It is incredibly tight getting in and out with a big rig, and they don't have nearly enough rock on the roads and the sites, creating a duststorm throughout the day each day. If I were a "camper" I would love this place but, with a big rig, it is less lovable. Still, I would stay here again.

I did not find this park was not being maintained as others have suggested. Rather, I found the park to be in immaculate condition with wide, spacious, long sites, and clean as a pin. I was annoyed,however, when I arrived and found they had "lost" my reservation and, despite numerous empty spaces, could only fit me into a "premium" site at $5.00 more per night. I was further annoyed when I found their pay Internet rates to be a ridiculous $5.00 per night. A nice park, but some annoyances.

A really nice, clean, spacious RV park with wide, long spaces and all the amenities except wi-fi. You can get free wi-fi in the office, but it is slow, and, if you pay for wi-fi, you get a faster speed but it is $3.00 per day and the sign on procedure is ridiculous each time you use it. I would give it a 10 except for the wi-fi.

This is a small campground next to a Best Western motel. It is very tight, but all spsces are paved. Be careful when entering property--you need to park away from motel registration area and walk back. If you have a big rig, for most sites, you may have to unhook. Still not bad and about the only place to stay anywhere for miles around. We would stay here again.

This is a new park with wide paved streets, large paved sites and paved patios. It looks like a parking lot right now because there are no trees but, when the saplings they have planted grow up in a few years, it will look much better.Wi-fi is good. Biggest problem with this park is there is only one bathroom building for all 114 sites and that is in one corner of the park--far away from most sites. Friendly management and very clean.

This is about the worst RV Park we've stayed in during the past five years. The roads are extremely rutty and rough, the sites are unlevel and dirt. The place is a virtual swamp when it rains, and is dusty as all get out when it is dry;. On most sites, you could put all the rock they've put down in a child's beach pail. They call themselves a "resort" and that's like calling a Days Inn a five star hotel. They require you to pay for your full stay in advance when you make a reservation, and advise you that there are no refunds for any reason. When you get here and see the park, you understand why. Although the place does have decent Wi-Fi, only one word can appropriately describe this park: Dump.

This park is beautiful but we won't stay here again because (a) they have priced themselves right out of the market, (b) they won't invest in an antenna or cable system even though many sites won't allow for reception of satellite TV, and (c) they have installed a Hughes satellite internet system that is so slow and has such a narrow bandwith as to be virtually unusable. We have stayed here for five years in a row, but no more. It just isn't worth it anymore.

I know the webmaster makes every effort to weed out park owners who do their own reviews and pad their reviews. I am afraid this is happening here. This site has had five straight perfect 10 reviews. The truth: The roads are terrible, the sites are not level, mudholes are everywhere, there are huge holes in sites and on roads, and ditches are everywhere in order to drain this swamp (quite dangerous). Wi-fi is spotty at best. Sites are indeed long and wide, but this place is definitely not a 10 by any stretch of the imagination. I am asking thw webmaster to put this place on his watch list for fraud.

This is a most delightful RV park, full of gorgeous old-growth trees, level, paved sites, spotless restrooms, a beautiful river running through it--everything you could possibly want in a campground or RV park. The canopy of trees prevents satellite dishes from working at most sites, but they have very good, clear, free cable TV with about 80 channels.The free WiFi is available in probably half the sites. In over 30 years of camping, we have never met nicer people than those who own and operate this place, absolutely wonderful, kind folks. You will fall in love with this place. We had a reservation for one night and, when we arrived, we kept extending it for a total of three weeks. Wonderful place.

A really neat campground with plenty of things for the kids to do. Only two drawbacks: (1) The paved sites need to be wider. There is barely enough room to get your wheels on the cement, and (2) the water hookups are laughable. They have some kind of whiz-bang anti-freeze water connection that requires a degree in physics to operate it. I saw several people standing there scratching their heads trying to figure it out. Most people eventually went to the office to get instructions. But, overall, an excellent park with good cable and excellent WiFi.

This is one of the finest RV Resorts in America. It actually makes parks like Outdoor Resorts of America look second rate in comparison. The grounds are manicured, restrooms and showers are impeccable, sites are wide with gorgeous views. There is absolutely nothing that can be done to improve this park. One word of caution, however. When we arrived, we asked the desk to recommend an RV repairman because we were having an appliance problem. They recommended Bare RV Service and we called Mr. Bare, who promised to come out and fix the problem. We spoke with him almost every day for almost two weeks, and it was always "tomorrow." Long story short. We sat here two weeks and he never showed up. We finally called Traverse City RV, and they came out right away and fixed the problem. Never, never use Bare RV while at this park. They are totally undependable will lead you on and on.

This is one of the best RV parks in America. It has been run by the same family for many years,and is outstanding in every way. Clean as a pin, with everything you could possibly want in a campground. My only bad experience, and it was not with them but a vendor they recommend, was having my RV repaired by Ranch RV Sales. Do not use these people under any circumstances. They were supposed to fix three things on my motorhome and I became somewhat suspicious when I called them and the first thing whey wanted to know was my credit card number. I asked why and they said they had to have it in order to come out and they would bill my credit card for repairs. Long story short, they fixed none of the three items, refused to come back and do them over, and billed my credit card for over $400. I have filed a dispute notice with the credit card company and am trying to get the charge disallowed. This is not the RV park's fault, however, and I would highly recommend you stay there--just avoid this "repair" shop.

Nice folks and a pretty little park with good wi-fi but, unfortunately, they miss out on one of the basics: Level sites. We saw only two 50 amp sites in the park and neither were anywhere near level. We could not get our coach level regardless of how much jack we used. A shame.

I give this campground a 10 for beauty, peacefulness, and attractiveness. For everything else, I give it a zero. Averaging these scores, I give the campground an overall 5. The park is beautiful but don't come here if (a) you want a level site--there aren't any, (b) want to avoid dust, dust, dust--everything is non-paved and dusty as all get out, (c) need cable tv because of the very limited local selection, or (d) want wi-fi. This place is affiliated with Tengo Internet--the worst RV Park internet system in the country. It was $4.00 per day (in addition to the $49.00 I paid for full-hookups without cable tv), and worked only half the time. If Tengo Internet was a horse, they'd shoot it. The place is gorgeous but overpriced and has all sorts of problems as outlined previously. You can do much, much better.

Like most KOAs, this one is overpriced, crowded, old, decrepit, and not worth anywhere near the charge. The wi-fi did work well, but that's about all the positive input I can say about it.

When you first enter this park, you are amazed: The sites are all paved, are very long and wide and ingress and egress for big rigs is great. People in the office and on the staff are friendly, and it is obvious that planning by someone experienced with RVs has been done. Then, you realize that, despite the first impression and the planning, someone has screwed up royally. Firstly, there is no visible sign from Highway 85 and many folks drive right by and turnaround. Secondly, when you walk the park you cannot believe how many sites are very, very un-level, almost to the point of giving you vertigo. Thirdly, each power post has two tv jacks--one high and difficult to get to, and one low and easy to get to. It is not until you plug your TV cable into the easy one and get inside your coach that you realize that the campground handout sheets tell you not to use the high one, but the lower one (why not put signs on the power posts?) Not too long after you are here you realize that the water faucet set up (designed to minimize freezing), is a total disaster and, we understand, parts in all of the pipes have already been replaced once. The wi-fi here is a disappointment--very weak signal and we are in the center of the park. Of course, signs on the power posts can easily be placed, the poorly designed water faucets can be replaced, and the wi-fi and be beefed up. They cannot very well tear up the paved, highly-un-level sites. While we were here (just before bike week in Sturgis), every other campground in the area was full--this one was at least half empty. If they don't fix some things here, it will not make it.

This park embodies and represents everything I have come to dislike about RV parks. In the 35 years we have been RV'ing and proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that, where no competition exists (and it doesn’t in and around the Jackson area), some RV park owners could care less about you and your stay. While we found some members of the staff here to be friendly and courteous, others, including a really big guy who checked us in, were rude, arrogant, condescending, and pompous. I suppose if I were locked into a small hut (the office: they did not even have a walk-in office) for several hours a day, I might be a bit testy. When we were heading to the Virginian in Jackson, we discovered that we had a problem with our house air conditioning. We called ahead to the park and asked them if they could recommend a repairman. The person we spoke to told us that the park manager was an RVIA certified technician and he could fix anything. I asked for his name and number, and called and left him a message. He never called back. When we got to the park, I tried to locate another RV repairman, but found out that park rules prohibited any other repairman without permission from the RV Technician/Park Manager (duh!). I located the Park Manager and he promised to come over within a hour or so. Four hours later, he still had not shown up. He finally came after we went to bed, and promised to be here the next morning at shortly after 7 am. At 10:30 am, he had not shown up so I located him again, and gave him a key to our motorhome, explaining we had some places to go. He promised to go over and look at the problem. We returned that afternoon, and he came by our unit, basically told us he had looked at our unit, he didn’t know what was wrong with our air conditioning, and he could not fix it, and promptly presented me with a bill for $80. Ridiculous. I felt I had no choice. This is his town and probably the local sheriff is his brother in law, and his sister is the town judge. That however, was the least of our shock at this place. The regular price was $55. per night, before Good Sam discount, for what I can best describe as a dusty, unpaved, sardine can. My slideouts and my neighbor’s awning touched and, when the wind blew, actually rubbed together. Sites were so short that your car had to be partially parked in the road since there was no room in the short site, making it very difficult for others to come and go. And our site was one of the better ones. We had a pull through, while some of the back ins were uphill and had no parking at all. Sites were placed on corners where coaches were trying to turn, and maneuvering room was terrible. Also, we saw several coaches trying to leave the park and seeking routes out where they would not bottom out. Road maintenance was terrible. Further, we were again shocked when we noted that this 104 space park had only two toilets in the men’s bathroom (I did not go into the women’s bathroom) and about half the time one of the two toilets was stopped up. Our unbelief at this park was exacerbated when we tried to hook up to their advertised Wi-Fi and got a message that we had to go to the office to sign up. I did, and the rude big buy told me, I hadn’t asked for Wi-Fi when I signed in, so I didn’t get it. I told him I didn’t know I had to ask for it, but I wanted it, and was advised that the charge was $14.00 per week but, since the Wi-Fi wasn’t operated by the park, I had to pay cash. I learned that our Park Manager/RV Technician operated the Wi-Fi as a sideline. I then signed up for the service and was advised that the Park Manager would only guarantee that you could receive a signal if you stood just outside the sign-in hut. He was right, you could not get Wi-Fi anywhere else in the park except standing outside the hut, located on one side of this large park, far away from most coaches, because it had nothing but rabbit ears and no broadcast tower. We also observed while we were here, that what little grass this park had was watered with a water hose/spray sprinkler during daylight hours. We noted many newly arrived RV'ers getting soaked while trying to set up. I guess a park that grosses over $5,000 per day and over $35,000 per week simply can’t afford a sprinkler system, or paved roads and sites. By the way, whenever the sprinklers were on, or it rained, the place became a mud hole. We were also perplexed to note that, rather than use one of their precious sites for a dump station, they simply installed a sewer drain right next to the main road in and out of the campground, with no passing room on either side. When somebody was dumping, all traffic came to a stop behind him and everyone had to wait until he was finished. Madness. We also note that this park is surrounded by three major roads where the traffic never stops. Even with our fans running, we could not drown out the noise. Finally, Jackson is a resort town and draws all types of undesirables. This park did not have one whit of security. No windshield passes were issued, the area was not fenced, and we never saw a security patrol. It is obvious that the owners of this park don’t care one bit about their customers. Some of our neighbors said it best. They don’t care about your comfort: all they want is your money. And as long as they are the only game in town, they can get away with it. I would strongly urge you, if you want to see the Tetons, to stay at the Grizzly park in West Yellowstone, and commute to the Tetons. Don’t stay at this over priced, mud hole, that should be renamed Ripoff RV Park. The park, which has a permanent “no vacancy” sign because it stays so full according to one employee, generates about $1 million dollars per season. But won’t spend a dime on paving roads and sites, providing proper Wi-Fi, sufficient toilets, offering a convenient dump station, maintaining grassy areas, and so forth. Stay away!

In our 30 years of RVing, this is probably the best (not the nicest, but the best) RV park we have ever visited. It is situated in a small town, and is directly across from Flathead Lake, the largest freshwater lake in the western US. The park, although small, has fantastic views of the lake and the surrounding mountains. It has excellent cable TV and, while it does not have wi-fi, it does have a modem connection, and is next door to the library where you can use free wi-fi. The people who manage this park are absolute gems--friendly, helpful, and conscientous. The park is immaculate, and the restrooms and showers are spotless. This is the only place we have ever stayed where actual townsfolk would stop by and introduce themselves and say hello. I did not know places like this existed anymore. Even if you are not fit, this park is within a short walking distance to several excellent restaurants, service stations, casinos, and a grocery store. The park is centrally located for visits to Glacier National Park, Kalispell,Big Fork, Whitefish, Hungry Horse, Columbia Falls, and other neat places. This is one of the best kept secrets in RVing. You will not be disappointed.

When you check into this place, they should meet you at the office door with a jar of vaseline and a shoehorn. I have never been in a park this tight, with sites this small. The place has 100 sites but should have only 50. They do not have a modem hookup, only wi-fi, and they charge you $7.00 per day to use it, despite the fact that it is weak and not reliable. If you're pulling anything over 26 feet, say away from this place. It does, however, have beautiful trees which just adds to the difficulty of getting around this tight, tight park.

If you are towing a smaller trailer or fifth wheeler, or have a pop up , this park is fine. It is a really a delightful place for children and has nice, modern clean bathrooms. That's the good news. The bad news: First, the map on the website is lousy and provides you with a lot of information, most of which is useless. It is not, in any way, a fair representation of the park. Secondly, the park's greatest asset is that it is located where the Wenatchee and Columbia rivers come together, a beautiful site. But the park has installed a chain link fence between sites and the rivers, and has allowed the underbrush to grow up so high you cannot see the river. Sad. Sad. Sad. Thirdly, the "pull throughs" are not pull-throughs at all, but are semi-circular pull offs. The circle is tight and, if you have anything over a 36 footer, you are going to have a time getting into the pull-through sites. Fourthly, this is a state park, and the hands of the bureaucracy are evident. We found that our electric box was installed so close to a cement protective barrier, we had to get a hammer and bend it to get our plug in. While we were there six days, we never found a ranger in the office although we tried several times. When you check in, you get no literature whatsoever and, if you have a question, you are out of luck. Fifthly, although we noted that the ranger office had satellite Direct TV, they did not offer tv cable to campers, nor did they have wi-fi, or even a modem hookup. If we were a young family with children in a pop up, we would give this place a 10. With a big rig, we give it a 1. We'll split the difference and give it an overall 5.

A very nice and neat small park. Sites are level and well-gravelled. Management is friendly. Park is a bit tight--we had to back out of our pull-through site because there wasn't enough room in front to swing out. Park did not have wi-fi and, if you wanted to use their line to plug in your computer, it shut down their fax. Still, a nice park. We would stay there again.

When trying to review this campground, several words come to mind. Like dump, unkempt,dirty, junky, disrepair, un-level, needing maintenance badly, and so forth. It does have a good view (although not as stunning as some have said), but the condition of this property is appalling. Its a shame that the city doesn't develop this land into a first class campground but, rather, they are spending their dollars on the adjacent marina. If you visit this place before you make your reservations, you will not stay here. As to all the other positive comments? I can only presume that either (a) these people put view above all else, or (b) somebody is pumping in phony reviews of this park.

Actually, this RV Park is three parks--not one. First, there is the upper park (Sites 114 through 209). This part of the park is the pits. Short, gravel sites with no view, and many migrant workers. The second part of the park is the Bayfront part on the south side of the park (Sites 102-113). Sites are longer here and you have a view of the water--somewhat. Actually you are looking out over mud flats that are ugly and smelly for the vast majority of the day and a huge oil refinery. These are better than the upper park, but not much. Finally, there is the lower part of the park. These sites (1 through 62) are much larger and have actual water views of the Bay. Sites 1-15 overlook the beach and are quite nice. Unfortunately, there is only one shower/bath/laundry building for the entire park and that is at the entrance to the park (in the upper part of the park. It is quite a long distance from most of the good sites (in the lower part of the park) to the showers/bath/laundry. There is a Club House in the lower part of the park, but it has only two bathrooms (one each), and no showers and is generally for the clubhouse. The park does have excellent wi-fi throughout all sites. My advice is, if you choose to come here, be very, vary careful about site selection. If you get the right site, it can be beautiful. Otherwise, you will not be happy.

IF you don't need wifi, and if you don't need to use the rest rooms, this is a great, well-planned and beautiful park. We were here ten days, and could not get wifi 90% of the time. When we complained to the management, we were told everything was working fine. And it seems like every time we went to the rest room, there would be a sign up saying it was closed for cleaning. Seems like they believe the longer they leave up these signs, the cleaner the rest rooms will remain. But, still, a really nice park.

This is a neat and clean park, but the sites are darned small for a big rig. Also, in order to "hear the sounds of the sea and the seals on the rocks" as they claim, you better have a bionic ear. It is up a hill and a significant distance across the road from the ocean.

An older park but in fairly good shape except for length of the grass. Good ingress and egress. If, however, you want to use their "Wi-Fi" you will have to park your motorhome in the lobby of the office since it only reaches outside a few feet. Can't these people afford a few bucks for an outside antenna?

This park has absolutely beautiful landscaping, outstanding restrooms, a gorgeous office and store, and so forth. But, unfortunately, the actual RV parking spaces were designed by an idiot. While major roads in the park are two lanes and wide, most roads to sites are too narrow and do not offer enough room for big rigs to turn into the sites. Sites are just wide enough for the rig, and when you step out of your coach, you are in mud. When you try to access your storage areas or your slide outs, you are in dirt. There are large metal posts designed to protect the utility hookups, but they are right in the way of your slides. Patios are nowhere near the door of front entry/exit mmotor homes. Many sites are not long enough for both a motorhome and a toad although they are advertised as long pull-throughs. And, finally, their computer hookup is through a modem you have to pay a $50 deposit on, and plug into your telephone jack on your rig--not a good, workable computer access system and one that is quite cumbersome. Wi-fi would have been much, much better. This park cost millions to build. Too bad they didn't pay a bit more and hire park consultants or ask a few veteran RVers.

We had always stopped at the Ramada Inn in Tonopah because this was the only place we could find between Pahrump and Rena. It was the only alternative and, while only a 2 or a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10, it was a place to sleep. After discovering Whiskey Flats on RV Park Reviews, we decided to stop there. What a neat little park. Clean, neat, and easy ingress and egress for big rigs. Only problem is that the poured concrete sites are poorly designed and it is difficult to get in straight, and, in addition, the very strong wi-fi is, unfortunately, hooked into a local dial-up ISP so service is soooooooo slow. But, overall, it is absolutely the best RV park on 95 between Pahrump and Rena and we would stay there again in a heartbeat.

This place is an oasis in the desert, and is absolutely gorgeous. The most RV park for the money we have ever encountered. Great sites, plenty of grass, trees, and water. Only two complaints--no cable TV, and the absolutely worst wi-fi we have ever encountered. The wi-fi is operated by an outfit called "Coach Connect" and, when we were here last year, it was terrible, but they promised it was being upgraded. I guess it was upgraded from very, very lousy to very lousy. It costs $18.00 to use it for a week, and the signal is almost non-existent for 90% of the time. It is a shame that such a nice park allows this outfit to rip off customers.

This is an ownership RV park that rents out vacant spaces for owners. It is a beautiful park in all respects, albeit a "cold" one since everything is rock-rock-rock. No cable TV but wi-fi worked great. Probably the nicest RV park in Lake Havasu City, but it could use come grass here and there. Dog walk was inconvenient. You had to walk a long way outside the gate to the edge of the road to find a place for your dog to do his or her business and there was no grass there--only rock.

The good news: This is a truly enchanting park, delightfully shaded, on a babbling brook, with gorgeous views. It has level sites, excellent cable TV, and the best free wi-fi we have ever encountered. The bad news: With two people and a dog, it cost us almost $55 per night to stay here.Very pricey but, then, everything in Sedona is pricey. They also have a dumb rule that requires a sewer hose support that assures very vertical drainage with no sewer lines on the ground. (By the way, they conveniently sell these sewer line supports in the office.) Having said all that, we would return here in a heartbeat.

It is absolutely inconceivable to me that a park this nice, which has obviously spent millions in improvements, is so pet unfriendly and has such terrible wi-fi. The dog walk is so far away from most sites that only a dog with kidneys the size of a motorhome could make it, and the wi-fi sign on is absolutely the most convoluted, difficult-to-understand, ridiculous procedure I have ever seen. Unfortunately, if you do finally get on, you almost wish you han't. The signal is so weak, and the system keeps dropping connections, until it is virtually useless. Shame on you Beaudry for forgetting our fine furry friends, and our folks who need an internet hookup.

After over 30 years of Rv'ing, I have had customer service and customer commitment defined for me: It is this campground. In all my years, I have never run across such incredibly customer oriented people. It starts with a warm greeting when you arrive, followed by a personal escort to your site. Then you find out that, despite several incoming and outgoing faxes, they hesitate to charge you because they consider that customer service, and on and on and on. These folks truly are committed to their customers. The campground, although not beautiful or great, is nicely laid out, has deep spaces, has excellent restroom facilities, and so forth. No swimming pools or kiddie entertainment but just down to earth good value and good service right down to ample hooks in the shower areas (for the poster who recently said they didn't have these.) This may not be the nicest campground we have ever visited, but it is the best.

This park seems to be an after thought of the Isle of Capri (now called Diamond Jack's Casino). The office staff is like zombies--no information, little greeting, etc. They give you a xerox sheet showing your site and absolutely no other literature, recommendations, maps, information on the casino, or anything else. They carry absolutely no camping supplies and the two restrooms (with one commode and one shower in each) have to serve the entire park. The office and the restrooms close around 6 p.m. at night and don't reopen until around 8 a. m. the next morning. The campground itself is nice and has wide, spacious sites, with good ingress and egress. A shame it is operated the way it is.

This is a gem of a park with very long pull through sites, excellent turning radius for big rigs, free and very strong wi-fi, free cable, and most other amenities except for a swimming pool. A really neat and tidy campground. I would have given it a 10 except for the road leading to the campgroud (about half-mile). This road is in serious need of repair and very bumpy. Other than that, a definite 10. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

A beautiful campground right on the Gulf of Mexico. Easy ingress and egress, and all the amenities. Only two things keep this park from getting a 10 ranking. (1) The speed bumps at the entrance should have names like "Mount Navarre" or "Mount Florida" because they are ridiculously high,and (2) the Tengo pay wireless internet is slower than molasses on a winter day. Otherwise, it is a first class park.

This is one of the finest RV "Resorts" in America (and it is truly a resort). Huge level sites, easy ingress and egress, all the amenities, and everything is first class in every respect. We have been coming here for four years (ever since it opened), and it just gets better and better, with one exception. The wi-fi is like $30 per week and it does not work well, and is nonresponsive. I still give this park a 10 because everything else is so good.

It is a real thrill getting to this campground--winding roads, tight turns, a very narrow bridge, and a powerline hanging low right over the entry road (I ripped off my CB antenna on this line). The sites are very unlevel, I had to extend my front and side jacks all the way out on the motorhome, then put them back up and put wood, etc., under them. At $33 per night, including a ridiculous charge of $2.50 per night for cable TV, this place is a rip off. On the good side, people in the office were very friendly, they led you to your site, and good strength wi-fi is available for free. But I would not stay here again.

A lovely, heavily treed campground with nice paved sites and paved roads. Excellent cable TV, but wi-fi reaches only in the immediate area of the office. The park has nice wide spaces and good ingress and egress. Unfortunately, none of the pull through spots has sewer. Still, I would stay here again if in the area.

We had a reservation for a pull through so we would not have to unhook the toad but, when we got to the campground, the road turned both right and left in front of the office. There was no one in the office, even though it was mid-day, and it was three hours before anyone showed up. Of course, since were no directional signs, we took the wrong road, and had to unhook. There was a note on the door for us to proceed to our site, but no map. We had to guess where it was. When we got to the site, we noted immediately there were no bathrooms or showers on our side of the lake--only a foul-smelling porta potti. You had to walk almost half-mile to the nearest bathroom and shower. To avoid unhooking again, we had to walk almost half-mile to the office, when they finally opened, to register and pay our bill. It was extremely noisy here as the majority of the sites backed up within 150 feet of a major interstate. Not a good experience at all and we won't stay here again.

This park is just what it claims to be: A paved parked lot with striped parking spots. Roomy but nothing to write home about. Nevertheless, it is the best (and only) RV Park in the Milwaukee area. If in this area again, we would stay in this park again for a short period.

Nice park with a good view of Lake Michigan. Most laid back owners I have ever seen. They checked us in, told us to pay when we were leaving, gave us absolutely no literature or rules, and we never saw them again until we left. Park is a bit tight, but manageable. It is for self contained units only since the only rest room is a portapottie set up behind the park. They must have improved the wi-fi because we got excellent signals for the one week we were here. Overall, a good park and I would stay here again.

There are precious few campgrounds or RV Parks off Highway 2 in the upper peninsula of Michigan, and this is probably one of the best. It is not, however, a "resort." Good roads once you turn off of Highway 2 until you come to about a mile long road to the campground. It is dusty, dusty, dusty. Once you get here, nice view of the lake. Although they advertise 50 amps, I could not find any. Okay for an overnighter since not much else is available. No wi-fi and no cable tv.

I would rate this park a 20 on a scale of 1 to 10. It is so nice that I compare it to an upgraded Outdoor Resorts of America. Beautiful landscaping, very long paved sites and patios, plenty of room between sites, and beautiful lakes throughout the park. Excellent cable tv and great free wi-fi. Not for kids and it is adult oriented. This is a condo ownership park that rents out unused spaces and only accepts motorhomes and fifth wheelers over 26 feet in length. It is, by far, one of the nicest RV parks we have ever stayed in. A real gem!

I have stayed in RV parks where I paid $18 per night and left feeling like I had been cheated. This park costs $45 per night, and I feel like I am getting an absolute bargain. I am no KOA fan but this park is absolutely top notch in every respect. Huge paved sites with paved patios, gorgeous landscaping, top notch staff, wonderful free wi-fi, excellent free cable TV, a daily paper delivered to your site, and on and on and on. This park is everything you could want. And, when you leave here, you will feel good about paying $45 per night.

This is a third rate park in a million dollar location. The park is grossly underpowered with only 20 and 30 amp sites and, even though the park is heavily treed and most satellite systems won't work here, management refuses to install cable TV (you can only get three or four channels on your antenna here). Wi-fi is ridiculously expensive in those few sites where you can get it. This park was built when an 18 foot motorhome was a behemoth, and it hasn't been upgraded or improved since. A shame that someone has a park with such potential but won't improve it. Stay somewhere else.

I have mixed emotions about this park. When you check in to this park, in addition to the rules sheet and the map, they should also provide you with a shoe horn and a jar of vaseline. You will need both to get into most sites. Truly, they have RVs parked nose to tail, side to side, front to back, awning to slideout. Very, very, very tight. It's almost like they had a contest to see how many rigs they could get in here. And the road frontage in front of most sites is narrow, making site entry very difficult for most sites. The place is grossly overpriced. And, with the outlandish prices they charge, given the fact that the park is heavily treed and very few sites offer sattelite access, you would think they would offer cable TV. Not so--you have to live with a very limited selection of local stations. The park is pretty, and the wi-fi works exceptionally well. As a person who is well over 65, I would not stay here again, however, because of the high cost, the lack of cable, and the tightness. On the other hand, if I had small children, this place would probably be a top choice. It is ideal for kids who, after all, don't care about cable tv, how tight the space is, how narrow the roads are, or anything else but having fun.

The overnight pull through spaces are separated from the longer term spaces by an electric gate so we did not get to see much of the campground, only the overnight pull through area. This area was easy to get into and out of and offered very long pull through spaces. Only complaint was that the rock base for parking wasn't nearly wide enough for our motorhome. Otherwise, a nice park and, at least the overnight spaces, were not crowded or difficult to ingress and egress. The free wi-fi was excellent. We would stay here again.

This place is named the Heartland Resort. It would be more appropriate if they named it the Heartland Slum. When we arrived, although we had reserved a site long enough for our 41 foot motorhome and tow car, the site they put us in had both hanging over the road. The site itself was filty--trash all over the ground, the fire ring full of trash that hadn't been emptied in weeks, grass up to your kneecaps, a very rusty water connection, and dust, dust, dust everywhere. Calling this place a resort is like calling a rowboat the Queen Mary. And, on top of their healthy overnight fees (with no cable TV), they charged $5.00 per night for wi-fi, and charged also for use of miniature golf, plus a $4.00 per day charge for any guest you have stop by. A terrible place. Stay away.

This is the best overnight RV park I have ever encountered in 35 years of RVing. It is about as perfect as you can get.

This is an excellent RV Park with long pull through sites, excellent views, a very functional, uncrowded layout, level sites, and good facilities. The park is great, but I question the competence of the management. Although friendly, despite assurances they would put me in a site where my satellite dish would work, they stuck me with a huge tree right in front of the dish. And, despite assurances they had Wi-Fi that reached throughout the park, I was able to get it only about 20% of the time, and then not strongly. Nice people, but a bit incompetent.

A truly outstanding KOA run by a couple who really care. Park is clean, neat, everything in place, is big rig friendly, has good ingress and egress, and is most comfortable. When we were here a year ago, we complained about their poor Wi-Fi but, the day before we got here this year, they installed a new, free one that is strong throughout the park. A super place to stay for a day or two.

Nice smaller park with friendly people. Attractive office and bath area. Not a bad park for an overnighter although it is too far from anything to be a destination park. I would have rated it higher except for its archaic and arcane Wi-Fi system. With their system, you have to go to the office and buy eight-hour "tickets" that allow you eight hours of "clock time" (not on line time) for $2.00 for eight hours. Each ticket has a code on it that activates your eight hours. This works out to $6.00 per day or $42.00 per week. Not only is the system ridiculous, it is ridiculous that a park that charges as much as this one does even charges for Wi-Fi. Just another KOA ripoff!

This campground has a warmth and coziness about it that is just plain comfortable. I don't know of any other way to describe it. It is one of the neatest, best-maintained parks we've seen in 30 years of Rv'ing. The management is extremely friendly and helpful, and the staff is great. They are constantly working on the grounds, and it is neat as a pin. It has wonderful views of the mountains and is relatively near to a bunch of attractions. We've overnighted here several times but, this year, decided to make it a destination park and stayed here almost a week. Are we glad we did. You will love this park--it is totally unlike most KOAs in a very positive way.

This is still a beautiful park in a beautiful area. BUT you would think that an RV Park that costs $45 per night and has 365 sites would have more than one garbage area (it was full every time we went there), and you would think such a park would have wi-fi that reached throughout the park (it did not and was weak in most places). Also, I don't know whats going on in this park, but the number of previously sold sites that are for sale again is staggering. The park, while still nice, has gone downhill considerably since we were here three years ago.

This park is in the process of becoming a KOA. Good points: Friendly, helpful personnel, long and level paved sites, great amenities such as a pool, lake, gym, etc., and probably the best free wi-fi we've ever enjoyed. Bad points: Although the entire park is 50-amp, they charge you the ridiculous sum of $4.00 per day if you require 50-amp service. While the sites are paved, the roads are all rock and gravel. The rock has worn down to where it is virtually useless and the dust is very annoying. Management says they plan to pave the roads in a couple of years but, if they don't do something about the poor rock base before, I would stay away.

While this campground has beautiful views, it has, without a doubt, the worst streets and roads I have seen in 35 years of camping. The "streets" are not gravelled but are nothing but dirt and sand. The streets have huge ruts and washouts, and ditches run in front of many of the pull through sites. It appears that erosion is wasting away the streets but they are doing nothing about it. You could break an axle in this place quite easily. The wi-fi is useless. It reaches very few sites yet they claim they have wi-fi. Not true. Not a good place, but it could be with some work!

Okay if you are desperate for an overnight place but be forwarned--dust, dust, dust. Long pull through spots, but restrooms are far apart and dog walk is not convenient. They adverse wi-fi and I specifically asked them when I reserved a spot if their wi-fi worked throughout the park. They assured me it did. It does not.

We don't give out many 10 ratings but this park deserves it. It is a very level park with wide sites and wide roads with spectacular views. Everything is super clean, the grass is immaculate, and the roads and sites are well stoned. It offers strong, excellent wi-fi throughout the park, and it is free. Very nice lounge area and they provide a computer and connection for those who don't have one. Of the dozens of RV "resorts" and parks near Glacier National Park, this one, without question, is the very best. And, to top all this off, the park is run by the nicest couple you will every meet. They go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. In 30 years of camping, there are only a handful of parks I would go back to time and time again. This is one of them!

This park has an ideal location, nearby to delightful Leavenworth and Wenatchee. It has wonderful views, many large grassy recreation areas,excellent cable tv, and other highly attractive features. But, it does not have wi-fi nor does it have a modem connection. The roads are atrocious, and the gravel sites need tons of gravel to make them useful. This park, with some investment, could be a top 10 park for Washington.

Trust me, you do not want to stay at the campground. I started calling on a Wednesday to make a reservation but got a message that they were taking the day off but to leave my number and they would call me back on Thursday. All day Thursday, I tried calling again, and got Wednesday's message. Finally, late Thursday, I reached them. I asked about a site and the woman told me they had one. I then asked about wi-fi and cable and she responded very curtly. I then told her that I had read in RV Park Reviews that they had some power problems and that I had a big rig, and wanted to make sure that any past problems had been corrected before making a reservation. Her response was (1) RV Park Reviews can shove it, and (2) Perhaps I should find another campground. I did. A campground with personnel with this attitude certainly waves a red flag that you don't want to be a guest there. I'm glad I read RV Park Revews, and called with the question.

As I write this review, I am sitting here looking out the motorhome window at the lighthouse as the surf pounds. A fantastic view on a wide site, although I did have to drive the motorhome into a back in site on the water in order to get the view (and run all the hoses, connections, etc., under the coach.) (Why don't parks put in two sets of all connections so that both motorhomes and trailers can be served on the same site?) Anyway, it doesn't get any better than this. Fantastic views. Free wi-fi. Reasonable prices. Wide sites. Big rig friendly. Very courteous personnel. On and on and on. You will love this place.

There are several RV Parks in Williams and all of them have gravel sites atop red mud and clay. When it rains, the red mud seeps up through the rock level and, in many areas of most campgrounds, the red clay is not well covered with rock. Much mud, dust, etc. This park is a new one and is the only one in Williams that is paved. It is big rig friendly, has long and wide sites, and many amenities. First class.

Nothing pretty--mostly gravel sites with no landscaping, but they do offer very long and wide pull through sites and easy ingress and egress.

We definitely need more of this type of park!

I feel like Simon on American Idol, facing down these owners after they have just given a contestant glowing praise. So many people find this park outstanding and I cannot understand why. Perhaps my standards are just too high. When you arrive, the office, store, and recreation area is, indeed, nice but, when you get to the campground itself, no way. The first thing you notice is the only place to unhook your toad is very unlevel and downhill--dangerous. Next, after you register at a ridiculously high price ($300 per week), you observe that they don't even have a brochure or map of the place--just a poorly xeroxed copy of an old park layout. They give you a Chamber of Commerce map but it doesn't even show the park. Next you observe that the streets are very, very narrow and difficult for a big rig. Then you find that it is rare indeed to find a truly level site and, when you do, you have to drive over a good sized curb to get on and off your site. Their premium sites are what I would consider a normal site anywhere else, and they charge you an arm and a leg for them. The Wi-Fi, which you have to pay extra for, does work well here, however. All in all, this may be the best RV park in San Antonio, but that ain't saying much, folks. Since they don't offer refunds under any circumstances, I suggest you reserve only one night, or check the place out in advance. Good luck!

In over 30 years of camping, I would rate this park among the top five we have ever visited. It has huge pull throughs, some 73 feet long and very, very wide. All roads are concrete and landscaping is beautiful. The park offers free high speed wi-fi, a heated swimming pool, instant phones, and all the other amenities. This park really is big rig friendly. The folks here, both management and guests, are really friendly, and they escort you to your site. This is a rare find. You will love it.

This place is a dump. Those who rated it a 10 are either on the payroll or shills. It is in a slum area, is tight as I have ever seen, has terribly crowded sites, and is generally not at all a good park. Calling some of the sites "waterfront" is laughable. If you visit this place BEFORE you make a reservation, you will stay somewhere else.

This campground is a study in contradictions. It has a huge office and store, but yet it is closed many hours every day. They have very long paved pads, but they are so poorly designed that, if you park with the patio at your door, you need 40 feet of water hose and 40 feet of sewer hose. While the sites are extraordinarily long, they are just as extraordinarily narrow. You can barely fit both sides of your motorhome wheels on the site. Every site has huge ruts on each side of the pavement where folks have run off. They have spent tons of money on this poorly designed park, yet the water pressure, when the park is full, is not sufficient to douse a cigarette. It's a shame to see people put this kind of money into a park and not hire the professionals to design it properly.

This is truly a champagne RV Park with beer prices. I cannot believe this beautifully landscaped park, with paved roads and huge paved sites and patios, with all the amenities, costs only $6 per night for Passport members and only $11 per night for Good Sam members. This park is comparable to an Outdoor Resorts of America property, but is so inexpendive. It is obviously subsidized by the huge Paragon casino next door. We will return again and again.

A nice smaller campground with excellent hosts. Right on the Pearl River. This park has new owners and, hopefully, they will add cable tv and wi-fi. A good place for a night or two. Heavily wooded so your satellite dish probably won't work here-another reason why they need cable.

On the plus side, this campground has very friendly and helpful people and some of the most immaculate restrooms and showers I have ever seen. On the negative side, the sites are not level, turns and corners in the park are down right scary for a big rig, and they need to level and put in more gravel. Overall, not a bad place for a night or two, but they need to work on the park layout and those tight turns and corners.

A good RV park for visting Savannah. Plenty of room and the park is clean and orderly. We spoke to the manager about a previous report of theft from a unit, and he said this was nothing but a plain and simple insurance scam. We had no problems whatsoever while we were there.

Not much, but the only alternative within 50 miles. Basically a gravel parking lot where you register youself, pick any vacant site, and leave your money (cash only) in an envelope. People who run it are hermits, won't answer their door, and never come out. But, again, it is better than parking on an interstate median strip.

Another KOA rip-off. Roads are confusing and the map they give you is no help. They charge $55 per night for their paved "supersites". These sites are about what you would pay $25 for everywhere else, and our site was very unlevel. Your cellphone will not work in this place and neither will your dish tv, but their cable selection is mighty slim. Forget about getting satellite internet in this place, but you can pay a ridiculous fee for their wi-fi. In short, way, way overpriced. Unfortunately, what we have come to expect from most KOAs.

This is a dusty, dusty campground with very unlevel sites. Also, it is not big rig friendly unless you consider a 15-foot popup to be a big rig. Turns are hairpin tight, sites are difficult to get into, and, if you blink, you will miss their pathetic sign. Possibly okay for an overnight but not if anything else is available.

A wonderful little park for those who don't need or want a swimming pool, planned social activities, or things for the kiddies to do. Sits right on the beautiful New River, and several sites right on the river. Some sites paved but most are gravel. No sewer but they have a dump station. Register in the adjacent service station/convenience store/cafe where you will find some of the nicest people you will ever meet. This place is not listed in Trailer Life or Woodalls and has no website, but it is a "gem" for folks who just want to relax. Only drawback is its proximity to an I-81 bridge. It would be noisy for tents or tent campers, but fifth-wheelers, travel trailers, and motorhomes should have little problem. Would highly recommend it.

This place is a typical KOA. Difficult for big rigs, trees, posts, etc. , in the way, Overpriced ($42.00 for a gravel site that, at most, should go for about $22.00, and over-the-hill. Wi-fi at most campgrounds is free but, at those who charge, it is usually $3 or $4 per night. Not this place. Here it is $12.00 for one day. Ridiculous. Stay somewhere else. Will KOA never learn? Are they stuck in a time warp?

I generally do not like KOAs, but this one is the exception. It is very neat, very spacious, and is immaculate. Spaces are paved and have large patios. The people who work here are marvelous. My only complaint is that the free wi-fi worked only part of the time, but that is minor. Overall, I find myself in complete agreement with the TL Rating (a very rare event), and agree this place is a 10/10/10.

When we arrived at this campground, it was closed, and there was a sign on the door that said they opened at 2 p.m. We waited around until 2:30. When the woman who ran the office arrived, she was obviously very put out that people were waiting for her. She was very rude and condescending. We finally located a space, but she was very snappy in giving us instructions of how to get around to it. The campground has a few good pull through spaces in the front, but behind the office, it is dense, and low branches prevail. Okay for a one night stand, but no longer.

The only redeeming feature of this RV Park is that it is cheap. It does not have wi-fi. It reminds me of a Calcutta slum. The grass (weeds) is dead because they don't water it. The place is full of trash. When we arrived, our fire ring was a foot deep in trash, but nobody ever bothered to empty it. The sites are not kept clean, people don't pick up after their dogs, and, in general, the place is not at all attractive. The restaurants in the nearby casino are, however, quite good and reasonable. This place seems to attract a lot of less than desirable people. I would not recommend it.

Very nice rv park and campground run by very friendly people. Nice level sites with good ingress and egress.

Otherwise, would highly recommend.

Typical KOA except in one respect. The campground had tight turns and impediments for a big rig, and the "river" that allegedly ran through the campground was bone dry. The one respect where this campground was different was that its "deluxe" sites were a total ripoff at $59 per night. They were gravel and basically no better than what you would expect at a $25-$30 per night campground. Would not stay there again.

By far, the nicest RV Park in the Flathead Lake/Polson area. Very, very long paved pull-throughs with excellent big rig ingress and egress. This is our second stay here and, since out last visit, they've added free wifi,done major landscaping, and made it a really nice place. And, unlike the KOA down the road, their advertising is accurate and representative of the camgground.

In 30 years of RV'ing, this campground's website is the most misleading I have ever witnessed. These people have discovered the magic of telephoto lens to make you think the property is adjacent to Flathead Lake. Don't believe it. It is miles away. They have a photo of a guy sitting in a field overlooking the lake but the lake is miles from him. They have another photo of a hayride with people going by the lake, again miles away, but brought close with a telephoto lens. The roads are not good, and the sites are not as advertised in terms of depth and width. Do not stay here if you want a quality campground on the lake. If you must come, either reserve only one night until you see for yourself, or, better yet, stay at the Flathead River RV Park a couple of miles nearer Polson as it has long, long paved pull-throughs, and great views of the mountains.

Nice RV Park with good ingress and egress, and roomy sites. Waterfront Sites, 50-56, are the best. Noise from lumber mill at these sites is not a problem unless you have a popup camper or tent. Motorhomes, fifth wheelers, and travel trailers should have no problems. Nice little beach. Excellent wi-fi system that reaches to the site. Good place to stay overnight or for longer periods. Be sure to dine at the nearby Cedars restaurant when here.

An absolutely beautiful RV Park right on the golf course. Huge, long paved sites with very large patios. Streets are asphalt and sites and patios are concrete. Very big rig friendly. The A section is slightly less expensive and is for smaller rigs but the newer section, the B section, has sites around 100 feet long and can handle anything. Only two drawbacks to this park are (a) Deer Park doesn't offer very much by way of entertainment and restaurants and you have to drive about 20 miles into Spokane and (b) believe it or not, this first class park does not have wi-fi! Would have given it a 10 except for the wi-fi. Still, you will enjoy it. A first class place.

I read earlier comments about the tightness of this park and the difficulty in getting in and out, and they are correct. Nevertheless, we just completed a week here, and would come back again and again, even if we had to slather the sides of the RV with vaseline. This beautiful park is surrounded on all sides by soaring, majestic mountains,and has a bold river, the Icicle River, running right through it. No matter where you are in the park, you can hear the river bubbling and gurgling over the rocks. Also, I cannot adequately describe the people who run this park but I can say they are the kindest, most helpful people I have ever encountered in an RV park. The staff is constantly roaming around the park, helping people park, making sure everything is okay, bringing anything you might need, and doing all they can to make your stay better. We have stayed at parks that cost millions to build, but have never stayed at a warmer, more cozy, more comfortable one than this one. Despite the "tightness" of the park, it is well worth your visit. And, speaking of visiting, you must plan on spending time in the city of Leavenworth. The town is totally and completely a Bavarian village with wonderful shops and outstanding German restaurants. You will love this place!

The person who said that pictures don't lie obviously never visited this park. The website shows a beautiful view of glorious blue waters and a large site. The actuality is that (a) if you stay in the lower part of the park, your beautiful view is of smelly mud flats, (b) if you stay in the upper part of the park, your view of the smelly mud flats is enhanced by a view of an oil refinery. The brochure for this place, along with the "beautiful" photos, says this place "is known as one of the finest, friendliest, and most modern RV parks in the nation." Don't believe it for a second. This park is a second rate dump with elbow to armpit spaces that wants you to believe it is modern and has a good view. It does not. The only saving grace is that it has one of the best wi-fi systems we have encountered, with antennas in both the upper and lower section and excellent reception throughout the park. But the excellent wi-fi doesn't cut it by itself. Stay away or at least visit before you make a reservation. You will be shocked!

A really nice family-run small campground with wide paved streets and paved sites. Not a bunch of silly rules but a laid back, well-managed place that is very neat and clean, and which has a truly excellent, inexpensive restaurant adjacent to it. The park itself does not have wi-fi, but you can use the wi-fi in the restaurant. We had no trouble receiving it and we were almost on the furthermost row. A good place. You will like it.

Trailer Life rates this park a 10-10-10. This is like rating a curbside hot dog stand as a four star restaurant. I think perhaps the Trailer Life reviewer visited this site 15-20 years ago before the advent of large motorhomes with slide outs, and when small travel trailers were prevalent. The sites here are small, they are not level, vegetation has grown right up into the sites and has not been trimmed. If you have a larger motorhome or a fifth-wheeler, your unit will take all the site--leaving you no where to park your toad except the road, and that is prohibited. The roads are extremely narrow and swing room is virtually non-existent. Clearly, this park was once a really good one but it is way, way past its prime and is no longer desirable. Also, this is still another park that advertises wi-fi, but it cannot be received in the park--only in the office. Finally, the rules here are gestapo-like--don't do this, don't do that, and so forth. And the park is not pet friendly--you must walk your dog OUTSIDE the park, but there is no place outside the park to do this--it is all private property. In short, don't believe the TL rating. This is not a good place for a motorhome or large fifth wheeler, or for a person with pets. Skip it. Go somewhere else.

This was our second visit here. We visited in 2003. It is still one of the nicest RV Parks in America and they have "fixed" our only complaint from our last visit. They now have wi-fi! They restrict guests to motorhomes only but it is truly an enjoyable experience to visit this park.

This a first rate RV park operated by the county. Gorgeous views, excellent sites, and very clean. Easy ingress and egress and big rig friendly. While they don't have wi-fi currently, they do have plans to install it soon. For now, you must go to one of the two laundry room buildings for an 800 modem connection. An earlier post suggested you try nearby Grif's restaurant, but we do not agree. Our experience was not good. The food was okay but nothing to write home about and they did not honor credit cards. If you wanted to use a debit card, you had to get a cash advance and pay a fee, and then pay your bill. The REALLY good restaurant in town (nearby Reedsport) is The Landings--beautiful views, excellent food, and great atmosphere.

This campground was under construction when we visited, but you can tell it will be a first class park when finished. Streets are paved and wide, sides are well gravelled, and landscaping, when completed, will be nice.

A campground with a gorgeous view of the Grand Tetons. Although an older KOA, it has been reworked and modernized. Staff is very professional and gracious.

This is ,arguably, the best RV Resort in America. Huge, wide, long sites, all streets paved, all sites are brick pavers with huge patio areas, and a storage building for each site. The landscaping is immaculate and they keep it that way with a huge staff. Very nice amenities building and clubhouse. Although they have nice tennis courts, they do not have a pool nor do they have a playground. This is primarily a seniors park but it is, without question, the nicest park we have visited in some 30 years of camping. We normally use Outdoor Resorts of America as the gold standard but, no more. This place is our new gold standard. Well worth the expense. Two small problems. One, the park is so heavily treed that you likely will be unable to use your dish or outside antenna, so you must hook up to their 40-channel cable system. Two, internet dishes have the same problem because of the trees. But, again, it is well worth it despite these two small problems.

If you like a campground that charges a healthy rental and then tacks on fees for 50 amps, fees for your dog, fees for cable tv, and exorbitant wi-fi fees, you'll fall in love with this place. If you seek a campground that has sites so narrow that your wheels will barely fit on the paved area and one where your neighbors are so close that neither of you can put out your awnings, then this is the park for you. If you like getting out of your motorhome on muddy grass and don't want a patio, then this place is right up your alley. If you like walking half a mile to dump your daily trash in the only dumpster area in the park, then you'll love it here. If you don't mind walking past "watch for rattlesnakes" signs on the way to the only spot that lets you view the Rockies, then you'll be happy here. If you like roads that are so narrow and turns that are so sharp until you're biting your nails getting to your space, then you'll be pleased here. In short, this is a high class dump. Stay somewhere else.

This is an okay park for an overnight stay but it has absolutely the worst signage I have every seen. You can quickly get lost trying to find your site. And, if you will look at the site "map" on their website, it is a reproduction of the one they give you when you check in. It is unreadable and they admit it but are unwilling to spend a few bucks to get a readable map. If you have a choice, stay elsewhere. If not, stay here only one night and insist that the management escort you to the site.

Of all the Outdoor Resorts parks, this one has to be the prettiest and best laid out. Absolutely wonderful place. Only drawback is that it is miles and miles away from dining and shopping. But the park and the view make it worth the sacrifice. If you do stay here, drive the 10 miles to a small town called Lampe and have dinner at Jill's. Absolutely the best ribs we've ever had, and the quality and taste is consistent as we went back three times. Believe me, if you want to go to Branson, it is worth staying here and driving the 45 minutes into Branson each day. No RV park in Branson can even come close to this place!

A superb RV Park. Very well-planned. Easily accessed sites, big rig friendly, very accommodating people, and really a great place with a great view of the Mississippi River.

If you ask for Sites 100 and higher you will get a better view of the Mississippi.

There is only one word to describe this park but, since this is a family website, I can't use it. You visit it and you make up your own mind, but don't make a reservation until you do. I'll give you a hint: Camping on the waterfront in Indonesia when the tsunami hit would be better.
