One of the nicest state parks we have ever been in. The bathrooms and showers are roomy, immaculate, and have soap and plenty of hooks in each shower. Our pull-through site had water and electric only. The roads are great and all pads are concrete and level.
First the good: very roomy, clean bathrooms and showers. The views each campsite had were incredible- Cheyenne Mt. behind us, and the vast plains below us. Now the bad : poor signage in the park. No signs to give directions on how to get to the campground section and registration office. This of course adds stress and wastes time. A shower costs 4 quarters for 4 minutes. We put in our money and got ready, only to have cold water. Added 4 more quarters, and still got cold water. Not happy campers! The site we had (#37), was so steep and angled, the rear of our trailer hit the asphalt and scraped. We had to get maintenance to come set up boards to lift our wheels in order to get in and not tear up the chassis of our RV. The pad was full of dents ,gouges and scrape marks from other RVers trying to back in. We noticed other sites had this same problem. When we asked for the maintenance guys to help us get out the day we left, they gave us a bad attitude .
As seems typical with many KOAs, this park is overpriced and seems to take customers for granted with the barest of amenities. Our assigned site could not accommodate our electric and sewer hookup. They could not reach - and it's only a 24" trailer! Then they gave us another site, and our awning touched the RV in the adjacent site. Our 3rd site we took, as we were getting tired of moving around and repeated visits to the office. This final site has a fire pit that is 1 foot from a fast flowing ditch. The layouts in this park, it seems to me are poorly designed.
Very nice, clean park. Very nice staff. Bathroom and showers very clean. Only problem is only one bathroom ( 2 toilets ) for the large area we stayed in. For most campers it will be a long walk, as it is at the far end, not centrally located. And, the most direct path has a cable across it, making the long walk longer, as you have to walk all the way around to the other side to enter . Also, toilet stalls have no lock and the 2 showers only have 1 clothes hook each.
Yes, as the previous reviewer stated: after you turn into the entrance, do not drive up the hill yet, but stop and walk over to the house on your left first. You gotta sit at their kitchen table and fill out the forms first. Nice, friendly lady here in the "office". This is a very nice campground at a very nice location next to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The bathroom and showers are among the best we have used anywhere. And, EACH RV spot had its own 2 trashcans. Never seen that before.
This park is clean and well-maintained, including the showers. However, we are assigned to an area that is predominantly French-Canadians. They can't or won't speak English. We feel like outsiders in the social hall and clubhouse. We are being charged $29.99/month for Wi-Fi. The Wi-Fi service is very erratic and unpredictable. It has broken down for as much as a day and a half at a time. We pay this much money, and end up having to go to a McDonalds to be able to use our laptop.
The distance between sites was huge! There are 3 different campgrounds, so it would be a good idea to check them all out before deciding on a site. There is no water hookup, so you must fill your fresh water tank before you set up at your site. There is no Wi-Fi available at the campsite. There is one at the campground store. Since this State Park is part of the Ice Age National Trail, the Federal Golden Access card can be used here. It got me reduced rates.
The owner/manager was very nice. The showers were very clean and well maintained. We asked for a pull-thru, but this RV park has none. We got Wi-Fi signal at our site. This park's entrance is on the main road, so we did not have to drive a long way out to get to it. We had water and electric hookup only. Used their dump station upon leaving.
We have stayed here 3 different times. Nice paved roads thru out the park, campsites are parallel to the road, allowing very easy pull-through. Tall pines and old live oaks thru out the RV sites providing beauty and shade. Sites are very well spread out. Good hiking trails, excellent place to walk your dog.
