A basic park, with gravel sites, just off the freeway so you have traffic noise. Whistles from the train that runs nearby, baby trees so no shade, newer washers/dryers, book exchange, and the cable TV was good. No other amenities. Owners were very friendly. We used it as an overnighter and would use again as parks are scarce in this area.

Basic park, gravel sites, lots of trees, a patch of grass and picnic table. Backs up to the highway and you can hear the traffic and train. Easy to find and easy to get in and out. Rate reflects Good Sam discount but still think it's overpriced. Water pressure is good. For an overnighter it is adequate.

Basic park, close sites, gravel roads. Clean restrooms/laundry. BBQ restaurant on site which is nice if you don't want to unhook and go to town (the ribs are greasy though). There are trees at most sites as well as picnic table. Train whistle sounds but no road noise. Staff was friendly. Had to move our picnic table so the adjacent motorhome could put their slides out. Ok for an overnighter.

This is another park whose advertisement is misleading. Most of the sites are considered "deluxe" but they're not. What you get is a 30amp, a postage size miss happen piece of grass intermixed with gravel & a moldy picnic table. You can hear the noise from Hwy 80 which is adjacent (with windows open or closed). On the plus side, you do get gravel on your site and the park is full of trees. The campground store is adequately stocked w/supplies, food and parts. Manager is friendly. Easy to find right off the interstate. We wouldn't stay here again.

Too much money for what is provided and that rate is with the Good Sam discount. The roads and sites are supposed to be gravel, but the gravel has long since disappeared. Thus, with the rains, it's a sloppy mess. The laundry room is old and so are the machines, but they seemed to do the job ok. No significant road noise although the park is right off the highway. It was easy to find. Several permanent residents here. There is a swimming pool but we didn't see anyone in it (don't know what that means, but we don't use them regardless). The children's playground is located adjacent to the pond/lake (within a few feet of it) which I think was poor planning. That's got "accident" written all over it! We would not use this facility again.

Rate of $26 reflects the Passport American discount. We stayed here 3 days before the holiday and decided to extend our stay over the July 4 weekend holidays, no discount ($50). Well worth the cost. We've travelled over 7,000 miles so far and this is the nicest, most relaxing park we've stayed in yet. Lovely view of the lake, free paddle boats, fishing allowed (w/license), exercise room, swimming beach w/huge fountain in the middle to cool you off, swimming pool also. Miniature golf, volleyball nets, plenty to do, or just hang out. Only negative would be the somewhat dusty internal roads but it's doable. You will hear adjacent highway noise but we blocked out the sound, I guess, because it hasn't bothered us (hence, the 9 rating). Spaces are long and ample width for our 35ft w/3 slides. Laundry room a bit disappointing as it only had 3 washers and 2 dryers. No book exchange. Call for directions, our GPS would never have found it because of road construction/detours. We got a bit anxious when driving here when we saw the sign that said "no outlet." Don't worry, the park is at the end of the road. Gated and secure so you will get a card to enter. Employees very friendly and helpful. We took advantage of the local RV washer called 'Details' listed in the Leisure Lake brochure. He came to our site and did an awesome job washing and waxing our RV. (Highly recommend him.) We would definitely stay here again if we were travelling this way.

This park is conveniently located about 5 minutes off the Ohio turnpike and easy to find right next to a Motel 6. The sites were gravel, our pull through was relatively level (we didn't unhook), a picnic table was provided and the park grounds were kept up. They had a few permanent residents (which most parks do now, unfortunately). They had a pool but we didn't use it. The only negative we can report was the strong, obnoxious smell from a nearby asphalt plant. At first we thought our brakes were dragging and heating up, but after we pulled in we were told about the plant. We slept with our windows open all night and the smell permeated the air. We heard no road noise. Managers were friendly. We stayed in our 35ft, w/3 slides, 5th wheel. Would use the park again for its convenient location. Price included Good Sam discount.

Overpriced. The rate of $70 is for Fri, Sat, Sunday and the use of 50amps. Weekdays run $66 for 50amps. AAA discount 10%. Sites are gravel and the pull throughs are only 60feet. Narrow roads for maneuvering. One washing machine and one dryer. No cable TV but antenna reception works. Park is quiet and off the highway, no road noise. There is a pool, picnic table and grass at each site. Bathrooms/showers are new and very clean. Canoes are for rent to use on the small lake. Playground for children. No clubhouse. We stayed here in a 35ft 5th wheel w/3 slides, ample room to extend. Owners were very friendly and helpful. We chose this location because it is only a 30 minute drive to Niagara Falls.

Yes, it's serene and quiet, wide sites, grass, picnic tables, trees around the perimeter and beautiful setting down in this canyon next to the river. Pull thru spaces are on the radius (curved, for some reason?). We chose a back in with a view of the river approx. 20 ft below. There is a pool, 2 washers/dryers but no cable, no Cell, or TV reception because of the canyon. There is a small C-store to buy commodities.The bad news is, we were pulling a 35ft 5th wheel. Regardless of your rig, be warned the road down/up into/from the park was narrow, windy, one-lane and at approx. a 25 degree incline/decline for l/2 mile.This would be hair-raising if two rigs met at the same time coming/going because there is NO room to pull over, someone would have to back down on the curvy, heavily wooded, windy road. They charge $10 for a gate pass, refundable when leaving (suggest turn in your pass the night before to get refund because manager we found out was going into town at first light the day we were leaving and we wouldn't have received our refund). There is a small book exchange and video checkout. Would not stay here again.

Although the park is reasonably priced for the area ($22), the sites are not well maintained. Weeds/grass is tall and you get a weathered/warped picnic table. Sites are gravel and the pull throughs are long. Was plenty of room for slides (we had 3). Bathhouse/laundramat are new and very clean. There are 4 new washers and 4 driers which work well. There are a few permanent residents who live here: one who uses power tools to build his porch add-on. We used the park as a place to "park" our 5th wheel while we drove to South Carolina to visit/stay with family. The dumpster is approximately 200 yards away: far enough you would drive your trash there. No trees to provide shade. Trees are on the perimeter. Trees at the pull throughs are young and don't provide any shade. There is no traffic noise as you are well off the highway. It is relatively quiet at night, very few children probably because there are no amenities for them. We had good cell phone reception.

The asphalt site is as depicted by previous reviewers, which makes it hotter. We would not stay here if we were the only rig in the parking lot, as there is no host on site, nor is there any security that comes by to check on you. It is isolated. There is adequate lighting but that wouldn't do you any good if there were individuals who wanted to take advantage of a lone camper. Rate is high for what is provided compared to other places we've stayed across the US, and we started from Nevada. Would not stay here again.

Was a bit apprehensive because we had to call an 800-number to make reservations and there were no photos on the website to check beforehand. We had friends who live in the area and they checked it out for us. The park turned out to be very nice and there was a host on the premises. The gate had a code to enter for those who camp here as well as for those you indicate as visitors. Felt safer as a result. It's clean, weedless, with gravel sites, grass, and no mature trees for shade. Had plenty of space for our 35ft rig with 3 slideouts. They had one washer and one dryer which worked fine. Lots of families in the park which resulted in a lot of noise, but by 10pm it got quiet. Would recommend this park and would stay here again.

This is an extremely clean park. All the pads are concrete and have grassy area. Premium spots have a large planted flower pot, 2 adirondack chairs, and an above ground fire pit. The managers are very friendly and helpful. Certainly geared for kids, nice pool, playground area, etc. Has covered pavilion for get togethers. Laundry room has 5 working washers and 6 dryers that work well. Only negative thing is that this park is in the flight path of the local national hub for Fed Ex. My husband, who is a sound sleeper, woke up 3 mornings now at 3am when the flights start and by 5:30am he has counted a minimum of 30 flights each morning between that time frame. That is the reason for the less than perfect scoring. We camped here in a large 5th wheel with 3 slides. Plenty of width and length of the pad.

Don't even slow down! Keep driving! This park is hideous. Most of the sites taken by permanent residents in trailers that look like WW-II era. One 5th wheel has a small pickup truck (which doesn't appear to have been moved for years) with the bed full of garbage/debris parked permanently under the 5th wheel nose. The few sites that are available are extremely close together. We were so close to our neighbor that we couldn't even put out a folding chair! Our slides were so close we had to turn sideways to pass between them. And they have the nerve to charge $32. We found out about the COE (Corp of Engineers) parks in Lee's Summit for only $25 and reserved a spot there for the following days we'll be here in the area. And they are beautiful, grassy, clean,huge trees.

Although the park name sounds lovely, it's really mediocre. The sites are gravel, not very level and not well groomed (weeds, etc.). The laundry room only had 2 washers and 2 dryers. The recreation room is nice with a pool table, large TV, kitchen, and coffee available. The climb to the facility was a narrow asphalt road which required wide turns placing you in the path of any possible oncoming rig heading downhill simultaneously. Would have been impossible for 2 rigs to pass under this scenario. Thankful we weren't tested because one of us would have had to back up to maneuver the curve. Because of the curves in the road, it was impossible to see ahead to tell if any rigs were departing from the park down the hill while you were driving up it (or visa versa). There was ample room for our 35 ft 5th wheel, to open all 3 slides, and they provide a picnic table. Wouldn't stay here again.

Nice, quiet park w/concrete pads and sturdy picnic tables. Has grass at each site. A wonderful view of a large pond surrounded by trees (looked like a golf course). The pond setting, viewed out our RV's back window was a very peaceful setting. The managers were very helpful and friendly. We stayed in a 35ft 5th wheel, had no problem for the 3 slides. The park is off the beaten path so was no road noise at all. Very early in the morning hours we heard the faint sound of a train off in the distance. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend it.

Campground is clean. Spaces are adequately maintained and wide enough for 3 slides. Laundry facility was clean.Didn't use the pool. The only negative is the part of town where it is located. The surrounding area is noisy, and it is in an unsavory part of town. Handy that a city bus system is in front of the park to take you to River Walk area which is approximately a 10 min. bus ride. Cheaper than parking all day which is approximately $18.

The park is awesome in that the spaces and roads are extremely wide.Plenty of room to open our 3 slides, lots of mature shade trees. Small laundromat, only about 5 washers and 4 dryers, one of which was broken. Quiet, not much road noise. Local barking dogs heard periodically, usually at night. Each space has a small patch of grass and picnic table. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone. Only negative incident was when a sewer line problem arose, and they had to work on it. They never advised us of it and nasty water was coming out of our toilet and faucets resulting in our having to drain our water tank and hot water heater.

This is a HUGE park, over 1500 sites. All the amenities listed were accurate. We had the park to ourselves as most of the snowbirds had left. We were there May 7,2010. The only thing squirrely was the laundromat setup.You had to have a 'card' then activate the card in a machine by paying in dollar increments; then go through a series of maneuvers to get the machines to operate. Of course you will always have money/credit left on the card so you actually don't get your money's worth here. We attempted to go in the pool until we saw the sign "No Wearing of Depends in the Pool." YUK. Be aware there are no shade trees so you should have a working awning.
