We were thinking of stopping here with our grandkids on the way south, so we stopped in early to check it out. Stayed just one night. There's only one line to check in and there were lots of cars ahead. We waited. Then we had to wait 15 minutes to be escorted to our site. One small pool was open and they were working on everything else. Site was just long enough for 45' motorhome and toad, but was very narrow. Glad our neighbor didn't have a fire in their firepit. It was 3 feet from the side of our motorhome. The Wi-Fi didn't work at our site in the 700 block and we couldn't get a Verizon signal, so no internet. It looks like a good campground for kids if you are staying long enough to amortize the wait to get in - at least once they open up the pool and water slide and other kid oriented things.

This campground is very convenient to I-40. A great place to stay one night while traveling or for a week if visiting Cherokee, Gatlinburg, or Asheville. We had a premium back-in site right on a beautiful creek/river. We put our chairs out behind our motorhome on the grass between us and the creek. Our back-in site had a level, gravel base and was good sized. The Wi-Fi worked great. The people are helpful and friendly. Some sites have shade and some don't. Ours had trees in the rear of the site and was clear to the front.

This is a very nice RV resort with a couple of misses. Most of the sites are pull-throughs and some are back-ins. We camped here in a 45' motorhome and were pulling a toad. Our pull-through had a fairly narrow cement pad. As much as I hate driving on grass, there was no way to avoid it entering and leaving the site. The most frustrating thing about this resort is that they have two water spigots. One you don't see at the bottom of the pedestal and another sticking up very clearly right beside the pedestal. We arrived late after a full day of driving. When we checked in we got a map of the resort that in hindsite had a note on the bottom explaining the difference. We were only staying the night and didn't even unhook so I didn't read the fine print. But after we had added really smelly atrocious water to our tank the park crier came around to call to everyone with a hose on the wrong spigot. Too late for us. Now the motorhome stinks. The other issue for anyone with a motorhome and pulling a toad is that the exit has a sign just before the last right turn telling you, you have to pull into the opposite lane to make the turn. I was too busy looking at the very nice pool to see the sign. The motorhome and toad went over the substantial curb on the right. I wish the people that checked us in had given us a heads up on these two issues.

Nightly rate included tax. We stayed 3 nights and had a pull-in site almost on the ocean. The site was good size and had a great view of the gulf side of the keys. A walking path was between our site and the ocean. The entire campground was clean and neat. Landscapers were working hard to add foliage. The electric service was very good. The only reason I gave this campground a 9 instead of a 10 is that we were never able to connect to the parks Wi-Fi. We were in site 34. We relied on our own hot spot instead. The pool was clean and warm. The tiki hut was not finished and it was roped off. Would have loved to have sat there with a Rum Punch and looked at the sunset.

Fundy National Park is beautiful and if you have a larger motor home, the Headquarters campground may be the only one that will fit you. Point Wolfe is almost all tents and to get there you have to go through a covered bridge that has a tight turn into it. Chignecto is more accessible, but not for larger motor homes. We had a 30 amp site at Headquarters. I doubt they have many 50 amp sites. I'd plan on 30 amps. Our site was easy in and easy out and fairly large. There is a wonderful playground across the road for kids. Our grand kids loved the small zip line. Also nearby is the town of Alma. Some very good restaurants and great seafood. The salt water pool is about 1 kilometer away. We would come back again.

This is wonderful place for an a night or for a week. The views of the ocean are really nice. The grand kids really liked the playground and the small biking hill. Although 50 amp is available, it's only on 5 of 175 sites. In all likelihood, you will never see 50 amps. Our site (33) had no grass, just gravel. The connections were all at the back of the site. WiFi was OK.

We stayed one night on the way to Canada and one night a week later on the way back. All of the prior comments are right on. I would normally rate the sites and amenities an 8, but the folks that run the place are so nice I gave it a 9. If it had a pool and a playground for kids it would be a 9 or 10. Both sites were decent sized and reasonably level. Electric, water, WiFi were very good. Restrooms were clean and well maintained. We would and did stay there again..

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we've ever stayed in. The sites are huge. The views beautiful and the amenities great. We just loved this place. We'll be back.

We stayed two nights in a MH. The owners are friendly and the park is neat. It is close to rt 95, but not a lot of road noise. The sites were dirt and grass. It had rained the night before and it was puddling on our site. It made entry into the motorhome very messy. The sites are very narrow. I was parked 1 to 2 feet from the services and on the other side of the motorhome we had about 5 to 6 feet. The length of the site was enough to park a 45' motorhome still connected to the towed vehicle. This is OK for an overnight stay, but not very nice for any length of stay.

This could be a nice resort; however, the developers put too many sites into too small an area. The sites are small, close together and there is no turning or maneuvering room within the resort. We had to drive in and back out. There are three levels to the resort. The upper level had a bad sewer smell. The road to the bottom level, which is lake front sites, would cause most larger rigs to bottom out. Be sure to look first before you accept a site down there. The view of Lake Norman is very nice and the Wi-fi worked well. We had a 50 amp hookup and the AC was good. As others have said, it seems like a lot of money for what they offer.

Spent 5 nights here with two grandkids (4 and 6). All of us had a great time. The 6 year old and I loved the bike trails. We all loved the swimming pools and activities. This is the best RV park for kids that we have been to. We had planned on doing all kinds of things in the area, but stayed mainly in the park because there was so much to do. We will come again.

I agree, this campground is awesome in every respect. Restrooms and showers are very clean. My wife even like the bathrooms and showers and she is picky. With the senior pass, the rate was discounted 50%. We had a back in site right on the water and had an easy time navigating around the campground with our 45' motorhome. Our Verizon MiFi worked pretty well. We will definitely come again.

Very convenient to I-75. This is a very well designed campground with many long pull through sites. We have a 45' motorhome and are towing a truck and it was very easy to navigate the interior roads. No tight corners or low branches to contend with. Many of the long pull through sites had 2 dump positions, as ours did. This provides a lot of flexibility in terms of parking the RV and having your toad in front or behind the it and still using a short sewer hose. We will stay here again.

This campground is a very convenient to I-65. We have a 45' motorhome and were pulling a truck and had no problem navigating our way around the campground. We had a very long pull through and did not have to disconnect. Our site was fairly wide with some landscaping but no large trees so we had excellent satellite reception. The Wi-Fi did not work on our site but we have a MiFi card with Verizon which worked great. I did not hook up to sewer because I would have had to disconnect the truck and move it in front of the motorhome. It's a very nice campground and I would stay here again.

We have a 45' motorhome and were pulling a truck. It was an easy in and out. We stayed on lot 90 which was a very nice back-in. They have a small coach house on site that isn't available to renters. The resort is very well laid out with plenty of room between lots and nice landscaping. They have small retention ponds that many of the sites look out on. They have storage yards and a tractor to accommodate larger trailers. Traverse City is a great destination for shopping dining and visiting wineries.

This is a great campground. We camped here with our grand kids, who loved it. We had one of the pull throughs near the office and at least there the Wi-Fi worked well. The kids loved the playground, pool and their meadow that had tons of ripe blue berries. It was a walk from the pull through site area for larger rigs up to the pool and playground. The kids loved the walk and we got great exercise. I looked in the restrooms and they were clean and neat. The Bar Harbor trolley stops at this campground. In 10 minutes you can be at the Acadia NP visitors center and in 20 minutes you can be in downtown Bar Harbor. They don't take reservations which turned out to be OK, since when we decided to stay another day we knew we could just stay on our spot. We would look forward to stating there again.

There are not a lot of choices in Greenville and this campground is very convenient to downtown and both the east and west sides of the lake. We had a long but narrow pull through with a 50 amp breaker but it kept popping and we weren't running all the AC's, dryers etc. The site was not very level. Although we have our own facilities, I did peek in the bath house and the "game room". The bath house was pretty dingy and appears to have an outhouse style potty. I'm very glad we had our own facilities. We would go there again, simply because there are not a lot of choices.

The campground is convenient to I-95. About half of the sites are paved and the other half are gravel. The utilities worked great. Electric was solid. The sites are fairly wide, so you aren't right on top of your neighbor. There are no trees for shade, but our satellite worked well. They advertise 65 and 70 foot pull-thru's. When we checked in they told us they were that long, however they are not. The sites are trapezoidal in shape and they are measuring from the ends furthest from each other. Unfortunately my motorhome is square. In reality you can fit a 45' motorhome on a pull through and that's it. Even a Smart car will not fit at the end. They advertise a $25 per night rate, but that is not available for the 52' pull-thru's. I would stay here again.

As everybody has said this is a very nice park. I would have given it a 10 except that the sites and roads are quite narrow if you have a 45' motorhome and a toad. To get into a site you have to drive over the grass. We had a site by the lake and the Wi-Fi was weak to non-existent. The first site we occupied had a defective breaker. Hopefully they fixed that. I would definitely stay there again. It is a beautiful campground and is located just off I-95. We heard no noise from I-95.

The campground is very convenient to both 81 and 77 and is right down the street from a Flying J. It's a great overnight stop. The sites are gravel with some grass between sites. Many sites are on a slope. Most sites are pull through's with fairly easy access entering and exiting. Satellite worked well. Our 50 amp hookup worked well and all connections were properly placed on the lot.

The campground is about 5 miles off the main highway from Truro to Halifax. The road in was under construction and is in an industrial area. The campground has a good entrance with lots of room to maneuver. We asked for a 50 amp pull through site but could not fit into it or any of the other 50 amp pull through sites. The sites are very narrow with 3 mature trees on each side. We could not swing in off the narrow road. Also the limbs on the mature trees were well below the top of the motorhome. We switched to a 30 amp pull through. Even most of those would not fit our motorhome. The site was not very level but it was not the worst we have seen. This campground is not suitable for larger motorhomes. Ours is 45' long and 13 feet 6 inches high. For smaller motorhomes, this is a very nice campground. I'm giving it a rating of 7, because for most RV's this is what they would experience. If you have a large motorhome, it's more like a 4.

We had a long pull through which easily accommodated our 45' motorhome and car. We chose this campground because it had wi-fi and 50 amp service. This was a 2 night layover on the way back to the ferry at Port Aux Basque. The site is level and the electric is very good for Newfoundland. There are no trees and the site is gravel. Sites are large, both long and wide. Check in is at a berry stand by the road. The woman was not very personable, but we got checked in and she gave us a map to our site. We visited the "Big Falls" which is nearby and saw salmon jumping as they passed the waterfall. Got some great pictures. Well worth the long drive up a dirt road.

This is one of the nicest campgrounds on the island. All sites are large and spacious. We have a 45 footer and are in a pull through. It is true there are no trees, but that affords a view of the lake this campground is on, from every site. From the pull through sites you can also see the ocean and Bell Island. We have a 50 amp site and it is truly 50 amps. The unloaded voltage is 128 vac and it barely drops under load. This is not true for other campgrounds we have stayed at in Newfoundland. The sites are gravel and some of the smaller bits get in the rig, but this seems the norm on the island. This campground is convenient to St. Johns and it's surrounding area. We drove through Pippi Park and it has tons of trees, but we prefer larger roads and spaces.

Convenient to the Trans Canada Highway. Most sites are gravel and fairly level. Sites are narrow. Pull throughs require disconnecting the towed vehicle, but will fit a 45 footer. We had a 30 amp site, but the voltage fluctuated so much we unplugged. At the time we were drawing minimal current, but all the other pull throughs were occupied and we had the last in the line. If the electric had worked, I would have rated it an 8. The Wi-Fi works, but the signal at site 1 is very weak.

The campground knew we were taking the night ferry from Nova Scotia and as such left a note on their window telling us which site to take. They are very professional and accommodating. Our site was a very long gravel back-in. The only negative was that the WiFi worked the first day for a short time, then never worked. Otherwise, this is one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed at.

They are in the process of changing the name to Coy Lake Campground and use both names. It's a good choice for an overnight and is close to Rt- 2. The pull throughs are short. We had to disconnect and back in. Roads are wide and gravel. It's easy to navigate in the campground. The campground has WiFi and it works well. We were in site 1, which was close to the office. I'm not sure how far down the signal goes, but up near the office it's good. Speed is adequate.

Rate listed is Passport America. Our pull-through was easy to drive into and out of. Plenty of room left on the site to drop the trailer tailgate and drive the car out and then park it in front of the motorhome. We called the number listed and the phone was immediately answered. The manager was very friendly and helpful when we checked in. This campground is very close to Savannah. Wi-Fi worked well.

We stopped here due to the previous reviews and because it was easy access off the highway. The previous reviews are accurate. This campground is a gem. We camped in a motorhome towing a 30' trailer so needed a CG with long pull-thru's. Theirs are huge. We were in an open grassy area so our sat. worked good. Roads are clear with no trees so easy to drive throughout the park. The bass lake next door is beautiful. Wish we had the grand-kids with us.

We were in one of the new pull through sites. This was a premium site and the cost was $49/night, plus tax. This struck us as very steep for what you get. WiFi was available at an additional charge of $4.95/day. Our Verizon Wireless card worked great. The pull through required us to disconnect the toad because it was short. Our sewer connection was 3 feet from the adjacent picnic table and our slide was over one side of that table. The neighbors slide on our door side was over our picnic table. His sewer connection is right beside our table. Our satellite connection worked good. There are no fire rings in the area around us. We have a slight view of a mountain. The park is fairly close to route 25 and is easy to get to. It abuts a main road but seems quiet.

This is not the prettiest park we have ever stayed in but the choices in Carlsbad are limited. The KOA is possibly a bit nicer but it's a very long way from the Caverns. It's really the best bet for seeing Carlsbad Caverns. That said, it's all dirt and gravel so when it's hot it gets a tad dirty. The wifi is non existent except at the office. I really don't know why so many parks advertise wifi and then don't have it. The pool is indoor and although we didn't use it, it looked OK. We paid $3 extra for a 50 amp site and the 50 amps was not usable. One leg was OK the other was 104 VAC with out a load on it. We did survive on one leg of the 50 amp service. Again, it's not the best we've ever stayed at but when we visit Carlsbad in the future we'll be staying here.

This is one of the best parks we have ever stayed at. The people were nice and helpful. The sites are all large and very easy to pull into. There are trees but not in the way of any motorhomes. The wifi actually worked well. The had a meat (spelling is correct) and greet that was hosted by very friendly work campers that we attended. The area it's in is very pretty and we enjoyed our stay. We will definitely stay there again.

Price reflects standard site and AAA discount. The people who run the facility are nice and they were helpful. The park is clean and easy to navigate. It is right on the water and the beach, although small, is very nice. We would stay there again.

If they had been honest about the condition of the park I would have given it a 7. The views are very good. Restrooms and laundry are clean and nice. Sites are very large with services in the appropriate spots. The pads are gravel but nicely compacted. There was one other camper in the park, which may explain the run down feeling of the place. The negatives. The pool was filthy. There were little things swimming around in it. They raked the pool when we mentioned things were living in it, but they should have shocked it. It's away from the park, but it's not a bad drive. The WiFi is non-existent. You can see their hot spot, but there is no real connection to the Internet. Our air card worked well but it was a slow connection. The bar and restaurant in the resort were so-so. Would not eat or drink there again. A high spot of the trip was a recommendation from a local. It is called La Kiva and features food, drink and a fantastic guitar player and singer. It's in Terlingua, just after the turn to Lajitas.

Convenient to the Finger Lakes and Watkins Glen. The sites are all good size and spread out. They have quite a few long pull thru's. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Some sites are wooded. Ours was open. I would have rated this park a 10 if they had free Wi-Fi. They do provide it free for an hour, but that gets cumbersome if you want to check the news twice a day.

We camped here one night in a 45 footer on the way up north. It's a great overnight stop on 75. The park is clean and easy to get into for a big rig. We paid $21 which is the Passport America rate.

Just as others have said. Convenient to Rte 95 and shopping malls. Sites were paved but pavement is somewhat narrow. We had a site that easily accommodated our 45' MH with motorcycle on a lift and toad (site C-6). They advertise wifi but was too weak at this site to work - which is right in the middle of the park. It's a nice, clean and well cared for park.

Rate was $40/night less a 10% AAA discount. We stayed all the way down the hill, right by the tidal basin, in spot 82. The the campground is maintained extremely well. Everything was very clean. Each site has a barrel for trash which is picked up daily. The sites by the tidal basin don't have sewer connections and only have 30 amps. The view is beautiful and there is a nice hiking trail close to this site, that goes around an island just offshore. Larger sites are up the hill on a flat treeless area and full hookups but no view. We will be staying there again.

We stayed here 3 nights while visiting Bryce and Zion. We covered both parks with day trips from Cedar City. This KOA is nice and the owner is friendly. We didn't see any signs of Cappuccino, fudge or pizza and would have loved to try some. Our MH and toad are 75 feet long and there was lots of room left over on our pull through. The cable selection was somewhat sparse but acceptable. Our site had grass and shade trees. We would stay here again.

We stopped here because Woodalls rates this park 5 stars. It is 3 stars. It is convenient to I-70 when crossing Colorado. There are no sewer hookups in the transient section. Only sewer hookups are for seasonal. I was looking high and low for the hookup when my neighbors said there aren't any. None of us was told no sewer in advance. They cut their stay to one night as a result. In addition to no sewer there is no cable TV. Only water and electric. Sites are rough gravel and there are no shade trees. $42/nite for water and electric is not competitive. On the positive, the area around the park is beautiful. It is located in a verdant valley of the Colorado River. Would I stay here again. Probably. It's the only game in town for miles around. If it's stopping time and you're in the area, it's a no brainer. I wouldn't plan a trip to this "RV resort".

Small site right off the highway i.e. easy on easy off. Many of the sites are long pull thru's. All sites had a new pedestal with 50 amp and cable. Water and sewer close by. All convenient. We had a MH with Motorcycle lift on the back, towing a car so were pretty long. As we pulled in the owner came out and told us to find a site and pull in then check in later. Very nice of him. He has a building with check-in and a small store for RV supplies and a laundry and bath area. Across the hall which is used for the free continental breakfast is a Mexican restaurant that was quite good. Next morning the water line was frozen. The owner ran out with hot water to get things unthawed. No trees, and not a resort environment, but a fantastic stop coming or going on Rt. 44. Although the highway is close, there is a hill or berm between the highway and the park that subdues the noise. We slept well. We would stay there again.

Nice park, a couple of miles off Route 65. Had a 72 foot long pull through site. Enjoyed the nature trail that goes down along the river. Also enjoyed visiting Bardstown to check out Makers Mark and Heavens Hill distilleries. Didn't have cable as it was $3/day extra and then found we had no satellite reception. They have Patio sites for another $10/day, but all you got was a small cement pad(not under the MH) with chairs and a table on it. If you are just traveling up or down Rt. 65 and looking for a quick stop look at Grandma's RV 1 mile and 1 exit south. We drove around it and will stay there next time we need a quick overnighter in the area.

We spent 2 days at the Wild Duck and had a beautiful back-in site with a nice view of the marsh. Very convenient to Portland. Very quiet and well maintained. Owners very friendly. WIFI wasn't enabled for a while and signal was somewhat weak, but it worked fine. Roads are well maintained, sites fairly level with some pull-thru's and some back-in's.

This campground has recently changed hands. New owners are very nice and trying to make gradual improvements to the park. We stayed at the campground in a 45 foot coach and fit easily into a pull thru space on the hill overlooking the small pond. The rollings hills of New York were beyond the lake. It was early in the season and we could see that the majority of the campground was seasonal. It is very convenient to I-88 and we would definitely stay there again.
