This campground consists of a large field of mowed grass surrounded by trees, with sites backing against the trees. There is a rutted dirt/gravel access road for the last 1/4 mile to the campground and within the campground itself. The field is quite level as are the sites - we didn't need any boards for levelling. Hookups are at the rear and the sewer is the furthest one back. With our 39' fifth wheel parked back against the bushes, two sewer hoses just barely reached the sewer pipe. The area is moderately quiet, although you can hear the train running through town about 1/2 a mile away and we could hear what sounded like a marching band practicing somewhere nearby during the day. The owner was quite friendly. The flags flying over the office give some insight into the atmosphere. They included: American, US Marines, Nascar and the Confederate flag. At $16 for full hookups, this was the best bargain of our entire trip. The campground is a bit hard to find. It did not appear on our GPS. Leaving the Interstate, look for the campground sign on your right on Barlow street after you pass the Autzone. It almost looks like you are turning into a strip mall, but the road will lead past the businesses and around the corner to the fields behind. Easy access to and from the interstate and a good place for an overnight stop.

This campground consists of a winding paved/gravel road through a thinly forested area with concrete site pads. The campground appears a bit older, with manu cracks, heaves and patches in the pavement and dirt eroded from around some of the pads. However, it is no problam at 5 mph with a 39' fifth wheel. The campground entrance is a bit odd, with a single lane road in and a single lane road out that meets in a short single lane at the entrance, which means you need to alternate coming in and out. This is OK, except that there is space for only one rig to park just past the office. If you stop too soon, or if there is more than one rig, noone is getting into the campground, even if they are just a car. If there were more than 3 rigs lined up, noone would be getting out, either. There is a very well maintained 2 mile trail along the creek and there is an unmarked path behind site 34 which leads down to the falls at the campground entrance. This path actually allows you to walk behind the falls, which is kind of neat. If you just want to see the falls from the top, you can follow the path adjacent to the campground entrance, across the footbridge to where the statue of Noccalula is located. We needed one board for levelling. Great value at $20 for full hookups and even better with our 10% Good Sams discount.

What a great setting! The campground is in rolling, forested hills, but the individual sites are still fairly level. Most sites are back-in. Of the pull through's, several have sharp curves, which would be tight for long rigs with a toad. There is good distance between sites. A picturesque stream with mini-falls flows through the campground, with trails and an adjacent golf course. There is one dump location with two drains, but they are located on a section of road with a significant downslope - despite two days of showers, nothing would drain out of our forward tank due to the slope. Very quiet at night. Good access either from the south (Royston) or from the north on the 327. If you go through Royston with a big rig, use the 17 bypass to get to the 29/8; the non-bypass intersection in the center of town is a sharp turn.

Very pretty location at the foot of the Smoky Mountains. The campground is well named, as it is an island, with the river running on both sides. Most sites back directly onto the river. The campground is easy to access through Gatlinburg with our 39' fifth wheel but is far enough from the main roads to be very quiet at night - all you hear is the river flowing past the campsite. However, all the water also means mosquitoes, so don't forget the bug spray if you want to sit outside. If you have a taller rig, you may wish to avoid driving on the 321 east of this campground where it joins the I40. We drove this route with truck only first and decided there were too many low branches and wires for 13'6". 12' or less may be fine. West of the campground to Gatlinburg is no problem.

Very clean and well kept campground. Sites are either gravel or concrete pads. Rate shown reflects Passport America, which is good Sunday through Friday. Easy paved access to interstate for our 39' fifth wheel. Very quiet at night - no road noise. T-mobile does not work within park, but my wife could get 1 bar on the access road. Sprint aircard workd fine. Very friendly owner. I had a Fedex delivery here which they even brought around and hand delivered to our door! We would stay here again.

Beautiful park at the bottom of a valley. Nice hiking trails right from the campground. There is a small waterfall on the edge of the campground. Roads and sites are paved, but we needed 2 boards to level. Watch for some sharp curves and steep shoulder drop-offs. OK with our 39' trailer, but I was glad to have a spotter to avoid dropping a wheel off the pavement edges. Very quiet at night. Excellent value. T-Mobile was spotty and Sprint air card patchy and slow.

Agree with previous comment that the campground is a bit rough around the edges. The campground appears to have been built by running gravel roads over rolling terrain without any other excavation, so the sites are not very level. Most require boards and significant extension of jacks or landing gear. Passport America makes this a great bargain. Owners are very friendly. No problems for our 39' unit. Small pond with a fountain on site. No on-site laundry. Keep your fan running overnight unless you want to be awakened by a rooster at 4:17 am.

Very pretty park, with a stream and pond flowing though it. Walking trails on site. No problem for our 39' rig. Hookups are at the rear of each site. Parking on the grass is allowed and required for longer rigs like ours. Needed 1 board for leveling.

The good: Nicely treed, good distance between paved sites (70' on average), hiking and biking trails, easy access from the interstate. Canoe and paddle boat rentals available, outdoor children's jungle-gym. The bad: We had to swerve along the access road to avoid low branches (we are 13' 6" tall) and even then, some were unavoidable, but small. The paved portion of each site is quite narrow with broken edges, which is not a problem except that some sites have trees growing immediately adjacent to the pavement, which would cause a problem for slideouts. Other sites are so uneven that it would be impossible to level the trailer. However, most sites are OK and we had our pick, as only 3 other sites in the 50 amp (B) loop of 40-50 sites were taken on Sept 5. Recommend that longer units (we are 39' fifth wheel) do not enter the parking lot when coming in to the campground entrance, as it would be difficult to negotiate the curve without riding up on the curb. Instead, just bear left on the main road and then park on the road beside the office. The bathroom floors were clean, but the walls of the bathroom and showers looked like they had not been cleaned any time this year. There are no dryers or paper towels. There were only four showers (2M, 2F) per 50-odd sites in the loop. Not a problem for us, with 90% vacancy, but if the campground was full, it would be insufficient. Similarly, there appeared to be only one dump for the entire campground (188 sites). As there are no sewer hookups, the lack of showers and dump would have been a big problem if the campground had been close to full. One very unusual thing: The office staff required that we have vaccination papers for our dog before they would allow us to check in. We had selected a site per their instructions and cycled back for the check in process before they informed us of this. They required that we cycle back to the site and return with the papers before they would check us in. In summary: the trees, site spacing and trails would bring us back here again, but only if the campground was close to empty.

This is a great campsite. Sites average approximately 60 feet apart in a heavily wooded area, which provides reasonable privacy. Sites are paved, though surprisingly, most are not very level. We stayed in site #4 with our fifth wheel and received 17 local channels. The campground already had long hoses provided, which ran all the way to the front of our site, so we didn't even need to use our own hose. Lots of hiking trails leaving right from the campground: we spent two days hiking in the immediate area. The first morning, a black bear sauntered down the road past our site. We also visited New York city from here. Lakeland Bus service runs from Dover. 30 minutes to the bus station and 1:20 to the Port Authority Bus Terminal in New York. Parking is free in Dover and the bus fare is $22 round trip. Another day, we drove to the Harrison Path station in Newark and then took the subway to the World Trade Center stop. 1:00 to the parking lot (add 20 minutes for rush hour) and 20 minutes on the subway. $7 for parking in the open lot. IIRC, it was $4 for a round trip subway fare. Would have rated the campground a "10", but for the uneven sites and the lack of sewer. But for the money, it's a great deal and we'd definitely stay here again!

This is a nice campground, but a bit pricey. $50 includes a $5 surcharge for internet, which was intermittant during our stay. Friendly, English speaking staff. You will want to get a gate cardkey in exchange for a $20 refundable deposit as the key is needed to get vehicles in 24 hrs per day. Lots of full timers here, who keep their sites spotless. Paved access roads and green space between manicured gravelled sites. Easy access for our 39' fifth wheel and convenientto the highway. Watch for the small blue provincial campground sign as you drive down the service road looking for the campground - their own sign is not very prominent.

Nice, quiet campground. Mostly seasonal residents with mostly nicely maintained sites. This campground had a friendly, open feel to it - not sure exactly why. We were quite comfortable here. Easy access for our 39' fifth wheel, but watch for possibly low branches on the main road getting to the campground (we were close to several, but we are 13'6" tall).

Very nice, well maintained campground, convenient to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Easy access for our 39' fifth wheel. Lots of grass and green space, but a bit pricey. Ours was one of their cheaper sites, nearer the road.

One of the nicer campgrounds we have stayed in. Lots of trees, grass and foliage. Easy access for our 39' fifth wheel. The stream and roads/trails through the forest behind the RV sites was especially nice. Our rate reflects full hookups including cable.

Nice park with a walking trail around the lake and close to services. Roads around the campground can be a bit tight (39' fifth wheel) but are manageable with some care. We narrowly missed dropping a front wheel into a fire pit when driving around a curve in an access road, but were saved by a sharp passer-by. Odd place to put a fire pit. The grounds get quite muddy when wet: a little more gravel would be nice. Otherwise, a very pleasant campground.

Nice, clean campground with spacious lots and good, paved access roads. Price is high ($48 includes an $11 per reservation fee divided by two days) considering the park has no 50 amp service, no sewer hookups and no water hookups. There is a fresh water station and dump near the entrance to the camping area, but with only two lanes past a single station to be shared by over 200 campsites, lineups can be expected. Nice walking trails, a beach and ranger programs help offset the lack of amenities. We used the restrooms and showers to avoid lining up for the dump station when we left. The staff did an admirable job of keeping things clean, considering the rains they had on the day of our arrival. No problems maneuvering around with our 39' fifth wheel.

Nice, well maintained campground with spacious sites and lots of trees. The only thing odd about the park was the way they present the rules - like they are berating the campers. This extends to things like a sign on a lawn with a picture of a dog leaving a deposit with a line drawn through it and the words below: "Pick it up". Not a big deal, but a bit odd in the hospitality industry and it sets a tone which is not as pleasant as it could be. We did enjoy our stay and the town of Lebanon is quite nice. It was a good base of operations for visiting Cincinnati and Dayton.

Easy access for our 39' fifth wheel, large sites with plenty of room between them. Clean, well manicured park. At $27 per night, the rate is great. The only drawback is that there are no sewer hookups and the main dump area, though easy to get to, has an odd arrangement where you need to feed your pipe through an opening in a steel grill and into the open sewer pipe beneath. If you like Casinos, it is within easy walking distance of the RV park. If you don't like casinos, it's no problem. No casino noise comes to the park. In fact, the park is quiet and secluded from traffic noise. We would stay here again.

Nice park with mature trees and a frisbee golf course. The sites are a bit odd in that the hookups are all at the rear of the sites. This meant using all 20 feet of our sewer hose to reach the drain on our 39' fifth wheel. Limited or no 50 amp service - we got different stories on this. The Kum n Go gas station at the park entrance is very convenient, with good prices on diesel and gas and easy big, tall (we are 13.5') rig access. Cable is $2 more than we paid.

We really liked the ambiance of this park. Lots of mature trees, pool, store, propane and great location to see the local sights. As others have commented, the sites are tight. We have a 39' fifth wheel and did not have any problems, but recommend parking in a site adjacent to the primary campground roads to ensure easy departure. Our truck was parked across the front of our trailer, like most others in this campground. Sites are not big enough to allow the truck to remain hooked up while parked.

This campground is a field adjacent to the highway with some gravel laid down on the field to mark roadways and campsites. There is a barbed wire fence dividing the campground from the highway which runs alongside it. Approximately 40 feet separates the fence from the highway. The entire campground is only about 200 feet wide so this means that any large trucks running down the highway will be heard. The water fill line is right beside the single-lane access into the campground, which means that if anyone is filling, none else is getting in or out. Showers are available, but cost $5 extra. We didn't use them. We did use the toilet facilities, which consist of two porta-potties inhabited by lots of flies. The valley on the other side of the campground is quite pretty and can be enjoyed from a patio behind the restaurant or during the 2 minutes it takes to walk the length of the campground. For a quick overnight, this is a cheaper alternative, but we would have been happy to have pulled off on a farm field access road and swapped the electric hookup for a $31 savings.

Nicely maintained campground with lots of grass and mature trees throughout. No problem maneuvering our 39' fifth wheel into the site. The steakhouse across the street is OK and prices are average for this kind of restaurant ($10 for a burger and $20-$28 for a steak). I knocked a point off the rating as the site was not very level. We had to use a board under the wheels on one side. The $35 rate reflects a Good Sam discount of 10%. We would stay here again.

One of the nicer independent campgrounds we have stayed at. The campground is situated in a mature forest and while each pair of sites are close together, there are nice grassy areas in between. There is a pleasant path around the campground perimeter adjacent to the stream. Just around the corner from the campground is a miles-long, paved river pathway that is good for walking or cycling. The campground area stays nice and cool in the summer, with all the shade and the nearby Utah lake. We would stay here again.

The front of this campground is just pull throughs and are close together. The back of the park has more space, trees and grass. We planned to leave before the May long weekend, but were caught by a windstorm. The campground staff bent over backwards to find us and many others space on this busy long weekend, so we could ride out the storm for a couple of days.

Nice, large, paved lots - typical of a state campground. 30 amp breaker tripped early several times when the hot sun was on the power pedestal. Showers in loop A only. Showers have no temp control. Was scalding hot one day, but OK the next. Loop B men room lights were out of service. Front gate was not manned during all hours - suspect they may be understaffed. Beach was not bad, but more litter than you would expect in a State park. Nice park, but could use some TLC.

Nice park in a pretty setting. Good central location for access to Bryce and Zion parks. Sites are fairly close to each other - our slideout was within 3' of the neighbor's picnic table, but this is not uncommon for the independent parks we have stayed in. As of April, this location is no longer a KOA. Owners allowed us to wash our fifth wheel on site. Plan your groceries and fuel, as there are no large towns nearby. We found cheaper diesel and somewhat expensive groceries at the entrance to Bryce Canyon on our way in and out each day.

Beautiful, quiet park with the mountains in the background. Sites are spacious and have paved pads and access. We saw lots of wildlife, including coyotes and jackrabbits within the campground itself. The park has numerous trails of different lengths. No sewer on site, but there is a convenient dump station at the park gate and at the campground entrance. Easy access.

Spacious sites, clean facilities. No sewer at campsite, but convenient dump station at campground exit. This was our base of operations for seeing the Sedona and Flagstaff areas. The park has a number of walking trails and a lagoon area alongside the river. We stayed in the Red Tail Hawk loop, which is less treed than the Quail loop, but was also less busy and provided a bit of a view. No problems for maneuvering our 39' fifth wheel. Cottonwood is minutes away with all the services you might need, but the campground was very quiet.

This campground is clean and neat, but is a gravel parking lot, with paved parking strips and sites quite close together. The lots around one edge of the campground provide nice views, especially if you have a large window on the rear of your RV (these are back-in sites). Most visitors appeared to be over night guests, which is probably well suited to this kind of campground.

Good access from main road. Sites are very close together and access is a bit tight for our 39' fifth wheel, but no problem, especially as there was only one other rv in the whole campground while we were there. Nice, quiet and secluded campground.
