It was hot and the campground was nearly full; nevertheless voltage remained solidly above 120. There is some shade in the gravel sites. Gravel is fresh making for clean sites without any mud. Overnight sites were narrow and RV's were packed pretty tightly, but it worked OK for a one night stay. Sites for longer stays were more spacious. My site was very level and I did not need to unhitch at all. Restrooms were individual bathrooms with sink, toilet and shower; they were clean and a pleasure to use. The only problem was a backed up sewer connection necessitating a site switch so that I could dump. Rate is for Passport America.
The first night the water for showers was barely lukewarm. The second night I got scalded everytime someone flushed a toilet and the shower flooded due to a plugged drain. My site was a gravel/dirt premium pull through site with good shade; some sites are out in the open. It was about 55 feet long and so close to the interstate that loud traffic noises lasted all night. Roads were gravel and narrow making for tight turns. They like speed bumps here. Rate is coast to coast.
Sites were gravel with lots of shade. Roads were narrow and paved, but the trees were intelligently planted back from the roads so that backing in was not too difficult. Upon arrival, I ascertained that my pedestal was incorrectly wired. A worker arrived five minutes after I called the office and fixed it. Shower water could have been hotter. Memorial Day weekend was party time for the locals. The place was full and overflowing. It did quiet down around 11 PM. The campground was full making getting in and out slow and tedious due to cars parked in the road and people wandering everywhere. It was hot and the voltage dropped to 108. Restrooms were clean until Friday night and never were clean again until Tuesday. Rate is for a weekly stay.
Half the sites have sewer connections and half do not. Some sites are spacious; others are pretty tight. In the section with sewer connections, the overall feeling was that rigs were packed in pretty tightly. The section without sewers was nearly empty; the section with sewers had only a few sites open. Roads are narrow, and I had difficulty backing into my site due to a tree too close to the road on the other side. There were lots of kids running around. Some sites have shade but most are out in the open. The individual bathrooms available at the general store were very nice. Trash dumpsters were overflowing with bags left on the ground. One morning, voltage dropped to 109. Rate is for ROD.
This is a campground with huge potential. That potential, however, is far from being realized. According to one worker I talked with, the owner refuses to invest any money in the park. He said that recent events hold out hope for improvement. In the meantime, the roads are extremely rough. The water is very hard; it smells and tastes terrible. The restrooms had new tile and counter tops, but the old fixtures were re-used even though they desperately needed to be replaced. Restrooms were not clean, and there was zero privacy for using the showers which really were not useable anyways. Staff was friendly and pleasant and helpful. The campground itself was quite nice with lots of grass and many trees. Sites were gravel. My back-in was over 60 feet long and had a new sewer connection. Rate is for Coast to Coast.
Rate is Coast-to-Coast. The sites are all gravel pull-throughs. Sites are spacious - both wide and long. I needed 2 full inches to level side to side. There are few trees and no shade. Laundry consisted of one washer and one dryer. Both cost $2. Restrooms were clean, but they had insufficient heat. The showers were cramped and there were no hooks.

Restrooms could have been cleaner and they needed serious maintenance. They had minimal heat and shower water was lukewarm at best. 50 amp was available at my site, but there are no sites with water or sewer. Entry road was paved but rough and needed to be resurfaced.

They have several campgrounds; I stayed in Buffalo Ridge. Sites are well spaced and vary in size from small to large enough for any rig. Roads were a bit narrow necessitating larger rigs to sometimes drive on the grass to maneuver. The campground is grass with numerous trees, but it's not enough for much shade. Roads and some sites are paved; other sites are gravel. Sites have electric only. Mine only had 30 amp. Restrooms were clean and functional, however, shower water was lukewarm and the rooms had no heat. The park has extensive trail networks for equestrians, hikers, and mountain biking.
Rate is Coast-to-Coast. Roughly 80% of the sites are occupied by members fulltime. They get used mostly on weekends and holidays; thus the campground feels like a ghost town on weekdays. Roads are paved but sites are sand with some gravel, and may need substantial leveling. Showers were very good in the clubhouse but only mediocre in the other shower building. This is a very large campground and if you want to use the showers it is a long walk unless you have a site near the center. The backwoods ambiance is wonderful. Speed bumps are plentiful as there are numerous children. Pool was not open yet. There is a huge playground for the kids. Be aware that no sites have sewer connections.
Overall this is a very pleasant campground with excellent access to Mammoth Cave National Park. Roads and sites were gravel with short concrete pads in some sites. Most sites were long enough for any rig. There were a few trees and lots of grassy areas. Restrooms were clean and functional, but showers needed some maintenance. Wonderfully quiet except Saturday afternoon when World War III broke out at a nearby shooting range. There was no Wi-Fi and my Verizon USB 760 was very slow even with my amplifier. Rate is Coast to Coast.
Don't let the junky entrance to this campground scare you away. It is a lovely small campground with plenty of trees. Roads and sites are gravel which were in good condition in spite of recent heavy rains. There is a playground and two fishing ponds - no license needed. Sites were long pull-throughs. My site was almost perfectly level and I did not need to unhitch for my overnight stay. The free Wi-Fi was very fast. Restrooms were clean and attractive, but not fancy. The showers were small and cramped. Freeway noise was significant during the day, but diminished considerably after 10PM.
This is delightful park right on the Kentucky River. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There is lots of grassy space in the trees for tents. All roads are paved. Pull throughs in the center were nearly 100 feet long. The park is geared to families with children; it has a pool, expansive grassy areas and two playgrounds. The access road from Hwy 127 (state highway 1988) is 5.5 miles. It is 2 lane paved, but narrow, with several 20 MPH curves. Big fifth wheels drive it regularly; just go slow. Wi-Fi is a new system and it has bugs; it was down most of the time. Management is working to get it right. When it was up, it was blazing fast. Verizon signal is marginal at best. Bathhouse was clean, but not heated. Shower water was lukewarm making for a chilly shower. Rate is for a 10 day stay.
Sites at Lake Lincoln have only electricity. Water comes from a hydrant near the bath house. There is a dump station. Spacious sites are gravel and most are big enough for any size rig. The campground has lots of trees and a nearby lake. Several miles of easy hiking trails can be accessed directly from the campground. Lincoln Boyhood National Memorial is a couple miles north. There were only a couple of other people in the campground which made it delightfully quiet. Overall, it is a wonderful, relaxing place to simply enjoy being outdoors. Rate is for early season before restrooms were opened.

Showers were hot and clean, but spartan and in need of maintenance. It was unbelievably quiet at night with a chorus of bird songs to roust you out of bed at dawn.

Space to maneuver is a bit tight, but adequate. There is some freeway noise at night; with windows closed it is not an issue. The restrooms are clean, but rudimentary. Showers cost fifty cents for 10 minutes. There were only a few people camped here, but half the sites had trailers parked in them which were hooked up for use, with no one actually using them. It felt like a ghost town. Wi-Fi worked exceptionally well. Rate is the Coast-to-Coast Good Neighbor rate.
Paved roads are wide enough for easy maneuvering. Sites are mostly paved with some gravel; most are long pull throughs, but back-in sites are around the perimeter. Restrooms are clean and double as dressing and showering rooms for the pool. Voltage held up well even with temperatures around 95. There is no shade.

Low voltage is an issue at this campground. And, as other reviewers have noted, the sites are narrow. Some have picnic tables, Roads and sites are gravel with adequate space to maneuver. The lake is pleasant to look at with a grassy lawn instead of a beach. The campground fills on weekends and is much quieter midweek. There is some shade at most sites. Sewer hookups cost extra.

There are two sections. The back section has long pull-throughs on grassy sites. The front section has long level gravel back-ins. Restrooms are spartan; there are no showers. There are other, less expensive, campgrounds in the area, with showers, but they are hard to find because they don't publicize themselves very well. In the front section, the highway noise quiets down at about 10:30 PM. There is no shade. Free Wi-Fi worked very well. Weekly rates are not offered.
This park was recently purchased by K/M Resorts and is now called Ocean Breeze. It is in need of serious maintenance and K/M has begun that project. They also appear to have big plans for upgrading the park It has potential. There is abundant shade as the spacious sites are carved out of a lovely forest. Sites are idyllic for nice weather, but miserable during extended periods of rain. The roads get muddy when it rains; some sites with less gravel turn into mud-holes. There are no sewer hookups available. The shower I used in the restroom provided a nice buzz from an electrical short whenever I touched the shower head. Management said this was an old problem that they have been trying to fix for years. The rate reflects my Western Horizon membership.
This is a decent little park, but it is not a resort. Because it is so close to sea level and the Columbia River, black water can be dumped only at the dump station and gray water can be drained only in the drain at the site. Use of washing machines is prohibited. The nearest laundry is across the bridge in Astoria. Sites were grassy back ins with good separation between sites. Most were plenty long enough for any rig.

There are a few trees, but this park effectively has no shade. Verizon reception is good, but not great - about 3 bars. Rate for ROD was $0.
This is a private campground that feels much like a US Forest Service campground. It has numerous tent sites in the trees. Campfire smoke was present nearly every evening.

Restrooms are clean, but showers cost a quarter for 90 seconds. Although I heard a few train horns, trains never presented a noise problem. The park is 2.5 miles off the main highway up a paved, steep, winding road that gets a bit narrow in places. Wi-Fi was too sporadic to be useful. Verizon air card worked well, especially with my amplifier. The park is family friendly with a playground for kids. Rate quoted is for a weekly stay with full hookups and includes tax.
Spaces were plenty large enough for big rigs. Roads were paved and spaces were gravel. The high hedges separating the spaces provided great privacy, but also made the spaces feel a bit small and claustrophobic. Showers were clean and worked fine except that the restrooms were not heated. Thus the inside temperature was around 50 degrees when showering. Wi-Fi worked well. On weekends the ATV crowd makes a lot of noise in the back part of the park. Road noise at night was not a problem. Management was very friendly and helpful. Rate is Good Sam weekly.
This is one of the nicest parks I have stayed in. Sites were long gravel with wide grassy sections separating them. There were a few small trees, but no shade. Verizon worked extremely well. Everything was beautifully maintained. They just put new breakers and plugs in all the panels even though the old ones were in better shape than what I have used in most parks. Restrooms were clean with good showers. Laundry had 3 washers and 4 driers all of which worked fine. It is easy to drive right on by since there is no sign visible in advance from the highway. Watch the mileposts closely. Rate for ROD was $0.
The spaces vary in length, but there were plenty of places for big rigs. Spaces were mostly back-ins that were well-angled to facilitate parking. Restroom was clean and showers hot but the shower stall was tiny and heat in the restroom was inadequate. Roads were freshly resurfaced with gravel while I was there. Internet connectivity was available in the clubhouse, but I did not use it.

The park is set in a forest with lots of space between sites and plenty of shade. Rate for ROD was $0.
For the best chance to get a reasonably level site, arrive on a weekday. Most sites available to non-members are steeply sloped. Sites with sewer hookups are available only to members. Sites are grassy; some are spacious, but some are quite narrow. Most have no shade. Showers are available in the bunkhouse, but they lack privacy. Verizon air card works OK. Rate is Coast to Coast.
This campground should be listed under the town of Burns instead of Princeton. There is a town named New Princeton on the map, but no town named Princeton. It is a gravel campground in the desert, but it has real picnic tables at each site. There is adequate room for big rigs. Restrooms are private baths except that it costs $2 for 4 minutes of shower time. Rate is Passport America.
This park was designed for longer term residents and most sites are occupied by longer term residents. The restrooms are individual bathrooms, but the (hot) water is barely warm enough for a shower. Sites are gravel as are the roads. There is lots of room for big rigs. It was wonderfully quiet for sleeping. Finding it was not hard, but you do have to watch carefully for the sign. It is not very big and it is hidden until you are right there. Rate is Passport America.
This was a pleasant clean park with large shade trees and lots of grass. Management was very friendly and accommodating. Roads are all concrete; they are a bit narrow making maneuverability for large rigs somewhat tricky. Some sites were gravel and some were concrete. It is really easy to get to, but I agree that the directions could be improved. WiFi worked perfectly for me. Restrooms and showers were very nice. Hookups, especially the sewer, were too far forward. Traffic noise diminishes at night and was not a problem for sleeping. Rate is weekly with Good Sam discount.
This is a no frills park; it is not a resort type park. The restrooms and showers were very clean and usable. The laundry was in good shape, too. It is mostly gravel with a few trees and patches of grass. There is a small tent area with lots of grass. Sites were close to level and there was plenty of room to maneuver. The owner was helpful and friendly. My Verizon phone worked fine. My Verizon air card was marginal without my amplifier. With the amplifier it was a bit slow but still quite usable. I would stay here again.
Sites are narrow, but level and many are long enough for big rigs. Sites are terraced on a moderately steep hillside. Roads and sites are gravel, not dirt, and although a bit rough, not anything to cause a problem. The pool looked nice, but it was padlocked. There is moderate freeway noise sometimes, but it is not a problem. There are two shower/restrooms. The one at the office is clean and functional. The one in the center of the campground is filthy. The showers are gross, the worst I have ever seen; I don't think they have been cleaned for many months. The laundry facility was ancient and in poor repair; I found a very nice laundromat nearby in Albuquerque. I did not use the free WiFi offered in the office. The rate is for Passport America.
Carpios Ridge is a recently remodeled campground. The new laundry/restrooms were not yet open for use. The only pull thru is extremely out of level. Back ins vary in length, but many are long enough for a large rig. They appear to be reasonably level with adequate room to maneuver. Sites are generally spacious with lots of room between them. The campground is in a pinion juniper area with limited shade and several hiking trails starting across from the restrooms. Nights are dark and quiet. Rate quoted includes a daily pass.
It is a big gravel parking lot with a few trees but no shade. Noise from the freeway can be rather loud at night. Each day, about a dozen Air Force jets fly over. Management was always friendly and helpful. There were activities almost every day. Pool was heated nice and warm. You can wash your rig or your tow vehicle for an extra fee. Sites were very long, easily accommodating large rigs, but only about 21 feet wide with back to back hookups. WiFi is free and worked very well. Laundry is one of the best I have seen. Showers are very good, but only one has a decent sized changing area. Rate reflects a one month stay. Electricity was metered.
CAUTION: you must approach this campground from the north. If you come from the south you won't be able to make the turn into it. This is a membership campground. My site was right on Oak Creek which made for great ambiance. No sewer hookups for C2C; it seems only members and permanents get the sewer hookups. And the dump station is set up for exiting RV's, not for RV's arriving. To use it on arrival you must turn around (twice) which is a major hassle. But the shower was really nice. Internet connectivity is in transition, according to the manager, and so there was none. Spaces are small and tight with limited room to maneuver. Rate is for C2C.
This is a membership campground. It is a very nice place to stay with lots of open space and places to walk around. Sites are long pull throughs. Wi-Fi worked very well for an extra charge. Pool was not heated. Showers were clean and very usable. Rate is for C2C.
This is one of the nicest campgrounds I have been in. You can opt out of the electric; otherwise add $7 a day to the fee. If you pay for camping, you are not charged the day use fee: just the camping fee. The only problem was that the showers were very cold. Apparently some pricey device needed to regulate the temperature was broken and the park budget has no funds to replace it. The ranger suggested I use one of the other bathrooms. I stayed in the Cooper's Hawk loop. Showers in the nearby Red-Tail Hawk loop were just fine. Everything is paved. Pull throughs were long. Sites are well spaced and reasonably level.
This was a very scenic private campground. The only gripe is that the Wi-Fi is available only in a few sites adjacent to the office. Thus you won't have Wi-Fi at your site unless you can get one of those sites; you will need to use the tables provided in the office or laundry, both of which close at night. Sites vary in size, but there were plenty available for big rigs with good room to maneuver. Management was friendly and helpful. Laundry, showers and restrooms were very good. Rate is for a one week stay.
This is an OK place for an overnight. It provided free, but poor quality Wi-Fi. Single private restroom with good shower. Next to highway so you can hear it well. It is an older park with mostly long term residents. Big rigs can be accommodated.
This is a good place for an overnight. The sites have only electric hookups. Water and dump station are available. The sites are long pull through in a big gravel parking lot with no embellishments. I had to do a lot of leveling. There are no restrooms or showers. The casino is within walking distance. The WiFi worked well.
This is a large public campground used mainly by people canoeing the Ozark Riverways. Most sites have grass and shade trees although trees are small and widely spaced in the electrical loop. Hot showers are free, but restrooms are desperately in need of maintenance. There is little privacy. Some sites are large and spacious; others are packed close. Many tent sites have a spur long enough for a large RV. Electric hookup sites are wide enough to park a tow vehicle next to the trailer. Locals use this campground heavily on weekends making for lots of noise. It is common for both doors of a parked pickup to be wide open with the radio turned up to full volume for hours at a time. Reservations are rarely necessary except for major weekends and the peak season from mid-June to the end of July. Be aware that there is no explicit reservation fee, but you pay an extra $3 per night if you do make reservations.
The web site and guidebooks all say "NO reservations". This is not exactly true. What the locals do is call the host and get on his list. This guarantees them a site for the time they want, just not a particular site. For a holiday weekend, the locals will arrive on Monday or Tuesday and pay for the site through the weekend even though they don't occupy the site until Friday. Call ahead to ascertain availability if you want to stay here. This is a pleasant campground with lots of grass and shade trees. Sites are packed pretty closely together and afford little privacy. Quiet hours are respected although families with kids on weekends means smoky campfires and lots of noise during the day. Numerous pull-throughs accommodate big rigs even though the roads are narrow. Sites are gravel with full hookups. Restrooms are clean but need maintenance.
Sites are nice pull throughs; most are full hookup sites as well. It is wide open with only a few small trees, but the trees have grown noticeably since my visit in 2003. A model airplane field nearby can be a source of annoying noise; it is the only negative. Windstorms can be very strong. Access to the vast network of metro Denver bike trails is excellent. There is great birding - especially for great blue herons. Get up early on weekends and watch the hot air balloons ascend. Free WiFi is available while their new network is in its trial phase. They may be charging for it in the future. Cost varies from $8 for a tent only site to $22 for full hookups.
Overall this is a decent, albeit somewhat over-priced campground. You pay a premium for the proximity to Denver. Roads are narrow and sites are a bit cramped. Concrete pads are not level and are too narrow. If noise bothers you, then beware. The biker bar across the street is unbelievably loud. Traffic noise simmered down at night but was significant during the day. Sites on the east side of the park are more quiet, being further from the bar, but they also are closer to I-70. Restrooms are the best I have ever seen. WiFi is fine but very expensive. The park was clean and their mountain was small but fun to climb. Staff is friendly and helpful.
