The rate reflects a daily stay with the Value Card discount. This is a nice park with wide paved roads and nice gravel sites. The facilities are clean and well-kept. The one entrance off Country Club has a gate that is monitored from late in the afternoon to early morning. Sprint and Verizon worked well. Utilities were good including the water pressure. There is train noise at times and some airplane noise because of the base nearby. There is a paved patio with a table and four chairs. Garbage is collected at the site; put your recyclables in a separate bag. Things have changed since the change to KOA. We do hope that the smaller pool will be for adults only. We know several couples that went to the larger swimming pool and there were so many kids that they came over to the smaller pool. KOA needs to cater to its ‘senior’ travelers also as Tucson and the surrounding area has a lot to offer us. We would stay here again.

The 21.14 per day reflects a monthly stay; you will have to add electricity. The park is easy to find and in a good location for us. The roads are paved with awful speed bumps. We unhooked the toad at the entrance and were escorted to our site. Entry into the site can be tight; watch carefully to avoid utilities. The pads are paved with gravel landscaping. The sites vary in size and the roads are not all the same width. The facilities were well kept and the staff was friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed the swimming pool. There is security at the entrance that monitors everyone coming into the park. We have stayed here once before and would come again. We did prepay this time in order to have a specific site.

This is the monthly rate for a back-in site. You will need to add electricity usage. Signage was great on the main highway; not so great at the entrance; the location was handy. The staff was friendly. The roads are paved and there are no speed-bumps! The sites are hard-packed gravel and fairly level. They are also angled so it makes for easy maneuvering. Water pressure was adequate. It is very quiet. This is a nice resort and the staff keeps everything neat and clean. The winery next door is a definite plus. Verizon and Sprint worked well. We would stay here again.

This is the weekly rate for a 50 amp pull-through. Signage was OK. The location was handy. The staff was friendly. The road is paved and sites are hard-packed gravel and fairly level. There isn’t much room for maneuvering if another rig is on the move or if all the towed/tow vehicles are home. The trees could interfere on some of the sites and the entrance to all the sites is at a 90 degree angle. There is also a short “decorative” light pole at every other site; for the pull-through, there is one in the front and one in the back. We had our pick of sites so that helped. The water pressure was great. There is some road noise but the trains blowing their horns frequently were annoying. Verizon and Sprint worked well. This is a nice RV park and we’d come again.

This is the daily rate for a 50amp pull-through and reflects one discount. Signage was OK. The staff was friendly. The roads and sites are hard-packed gravel and fairly level. The trees could interfere on some of the sites. The water pressure could have been better. There is some road and train noise, but not bad. The cook shack was handy for when you didn’t want to cook. Overall, an OK place for a few nights.

The rate reflects a week’s stay in 50amp pull-through. The staff was friendly; we were escorted to our site. Our pad was paved and level. There are trees, but not in our section. Water pressure was good. It is right alongside I-40 so there is traffic noise. The facilities were nice and they offer recycling. Verizon and Sprint worked fine. This is our second visit and we would stay again.

The rate reflects a one night stay in a 50amp site with the Good Sam discount. We didn’t see any signage coming in on highway 54. There is some highway noise. We picked our site and unfortunately picked one where the sewer wasn’t working. There are gravel roads and gravel pads. Ours was fairly level. Water pressure was good. It was an OK place for an overnight.

The rate reflects a weekly stay in a 50amp site. Signage is good. It is located just outside of town. There is some train noise and some highway noise. The staff was friendly. The escort showed us to our site but did not help with navigating the 90 degree turn into the site (there are trees to avoid) or with placement on the pad. The roads are graveled but very bumpy so go very slow. The pads are also gravel. We had to put boards under one side to come close to level. At our site, the modified sewer connection made it difficult to get an airtight connection. Water pressure was good. We didn’t use any of the facilities. They do close the gate at night and you need a code to get back in the park. Rules were mostly the usual. Verizon and Sprint worked OK.

We stayed only a few nights, so this is the daily rate; they only accept cash or checks and don't give any discounts. The roads are gravel and very dusty. Beware the speed “bump”. We had an escort to the site and he “parked” us. But we had to re-position the rig to avoid trees brushing some fresh paint and to level with ease. The sites have some grass between; the pads are gravel and some are fairly level. There are trees that offer some shade; satellite access from our site on the “hill” was OK. Water pressure was adequate. We didn’t use the facilities. Sprint and Verizon worked fine. The season was winding down so it was pretty quiet and we didn’t have a neighbor to our backside. We felt they should be offering discounts.

The rate reflects a monthly stay. Signage is good. This park is out in the country and very quiet. Occasionally a train was heard in the distance. The roads are gravel (dusty) but were in excellent shape. The pads are gravel and fairly level. Shade was minimal. The sites are generous; you may get a neighbor on your backside if you are in the lower section. The water pressure could have been better and it has some color to it otherwise I would have given a higher rating. We didn't use the facilities but they looked fine. Both Verizon and Sprint worked well. We’d come again if in the area as it is very convenient to Duluth and Superior.

This was our second time in this park and we’d come again if in the area. The rate reflects a monthly stay. The turn into Country Lane is between the BP station and the Wells Fargo bank. The staff is friendly; not all incoming rigs were escorted to their site. The roads are paved; the sites are ‘gravel’ and ours was fairly level. There are some trees, but many sites have none. The water pressure was excellent. Not all sites have sewer and not all sites have 50 amp service, Noise from outside the park was minimal. The facilities were neat and clean. Our Verizon Internet card worked well in the mornings, but it was not consistent in the afternoon/evenings. Sprint cell service was OK. It rained a lot while we were there and the puddles were annoying, but seemed to disappear within 24 hours.

We used the directions in the Trailer Life directory; your GPS might not be correct. The rate reflects a stay of 28 days. We stayed for 21 days at the daily rate of $35 and got 7 days free. This discount does not always apply. Signage is OK; the staff is very friendly and helpful. The one lane roads are gravel. The pads are grass; we leveled on site 3 with just one board under both front tires. The park is well maintained and the trees were OK for our moveable satellite plus they offer some shade. The water pressure was adequate. There is an occasional train close by but the noise isn’t a problem. They offer a great recycling center. Bucket baths for the rig are OK. Sprint and Verizon both worked well. The owners live on-site; they keep everything well maintained. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

The nightly rate is $25 + tax. This campground is easy to find, easy to access, and less expensive than any in Sioux Falls. We didn’t disconnect our tow and were able to squeeze both vehicles in the site. The roads and sites are gravel. We always seem to have to use some boards to get a nice level. Utilities worked just fine. There is some road noise but it is not bad. As before, we picked a site and setup before going to the convenience store to pay. Evidently they do take reservations but don’t always tag the site accordingly. Sprint and Verizon worked well. It is an OK place for an overnight or a short stay.

The $16 only reflects the daily rate, not the fee for the online reservation. The water level on the lake is coming up and everything is lush and green; the ambiance of this park is wonderful. The roads are paved, the pads are gravel. Drive carefully to avoid the many deer and oncoming traffic within the park. We’ve stayed in various sites over the years and always enjoy being at this park. Verizon was good; Sprint was roaming.

This campground does not offer any discounts off the nightly rate and you can’t make a reservation. The roads and pads are paved with nice grass and room between the sites. The pads can be sloped but leveling is doable. The only hookup at the site is for electricity and not all sites have 50amp service. The dump station is on the way out; there are several water hydrants where you can fill your tank. There are no showers or laundry. The only vault toilet is next to the playground on the upper level. Recycling is available next to the dumpster across from the residence. If you plan a longer stay, there are rules about how long you can be in a particular site and with regards to 30amp vs. 50amp service. We always enjoy our stay here.

Everything worked well; we had full service hook-ups. If you are a large rig with tow, things could be a bit snug, especially the U-turn at the entrance. Roads and sites are hard-packed gravel. When you make the reservation, be sure to tell them if you have a satellite. It was a good place for our overnight stay.

With only a few rigs in the park, we managed to pick the site where only half of the 50amp service worked (see previous post). They knew before we got here that this site had power problems but the pole was NOT marked. After much discussion with the store staff, they advised us to change sites. We opted to use the 30amp service instead and the rate reflects that. The water was not turned on yet; we didn’t inquire about the dump station. When we left the next morning, the pole did have a sign on it concerning the power problem. Other than that, it was OK for an overnight stay. For a large rig with tow, maneuvering could be tight if the campground was busy.

Location was handy; right off I-80. The roads are hard packed gravel as are the sites. Our site was level. Because of the low temperatures we filled and used our fresh water tank. Good for our overnight stay.

The rate reflects a monthly stay; you'll need to add electricity. The resort was easy to find (nice signs) and in a good location for us. The roads are paved; there are speed bumps. The pull-through pads are paved with dirt/grass between sites. Water pressure was OK. The facilities were well kept. They do not offer recycling but the Museum in town has a pop can “trailer” plus the state and national parks all have bins. This time of year, it was a busy park but seemed quiet. Our pad was mostly shaded, but we were able to find the satellite. Judging by the size of the trees, the park seems to have been built in three sections. We were in the oldest section; our paved pad seemed narrow but with the rig parked as far to the left as possible, we had just enough room to walk on pavement when going to the car rather than walk in the dirt/grass. The pad length was OK; the rig plus the car plus the bikes just fit. When we first got there the trees were ‘shedding’ and that made it easy to track into our vehicles. We’d have no problem coming here again.

The resort was easy to find and in a good location for us. The roads are paved; there are awful speed bumps. We were escorted to our site. The pads are paved with gravel landscaping. The sites vary in size and not all roads are the same width. Water pressure was good. We would have liked to give our rig a bucket bath without the extra charge. The facilities were well kept and the staff friendly and helpful. A situation with a loud radio was handled promptly. There is security at the gate that monitors people coming into the park. We enjoyed the sparkling clean swimming pool and spa. They do not offer any recycling. This time of year, it was a busy park but seemed quiet. The only outside noise we noticed was from emergency vehicles. We’d have no problem coming here again.

This campground is off the main road, but still close to most things. The rate reflects a calendar month stay of 28 days and to that you will need to add electricity (.14 per kilowatt). The streets are paved and the sites are crushed rock. The sites are not all the same size; they are all at 90 degrees. There was no escort; they only take cash or checks. The patio was paved but there was no picnic table. The layout is a mixture of park models and RV sites. The park seems to be well-maintained and there are the usual activities. Road noise didn’t bother us and the trains did not blow their whistles. The airplane noise from MCAS can get pretty annoying if they are having a busy day; the roosters and peacocks nearby also contribute at all hours. Our Internet card and cell phone worked well. At check in, we were handed their calendar, a sheet of activities, and a booklet and were told to ask if we had any questions. The booklet had all the many, many rules listed. It said that if you have a clothes washer/dryer in your rig or park model that you were not to use them because “we are on septic”. They did offer two nice laundromats; wouldn't they be “on septic” also? Like most campgrounds, not everyone followed the rules. Water pressure was fine; we bought our drinking water. They offer recycling for cans, plastic and newspapers. We wanted to stay an extra week or two but they would have put us back on the weekly/daily rate structure; so we moved to a full service 50 amp site closer to the mountains that cost less than $15 per night all-inclusive.

The address for this park is actually Eloy, not Casa Grande. The streets are paved, the sites are crushed rock. Our escort backed us in with ease. The patio was paved, but there was no picnic table. The layout is a mixture of park models and RV sites. There are planned activities in this well-maintained park during the winter months. It is just off I-10 and close to I-8 so noise from them and from the trains seemed to be always in the background. Our internet card and cell phone worked well. They only take cash or checks. Their record keeping is a combination of manual and computerized. It is wise to keep track of everything yourself. The rate reflects a monthly stay; you’ll have to add electricity to this. They charge per metered kilowatt and to that they add several additional fees. They also charge $5 more per month if you have a clothes washer in your rig. There are pages and pages of rules; like most campgrounds, enforcement is spotty. We'd stay again.

The rate reflects a monthly stay. Sales tax and Occupancy tax are added to their posted rates. This is an upscale resort with paved roads and generous gravel sites. The facilities are clean and well-kept. There is “security”. Sprint and Verizon worked well. There is train noise at times and airplane noise because the base is close by. There are a number of rules; not all are enforced. We had a paved patio with table and four chairs. We enjoyed oranges from our tree. No problem staying here again. This park does NOT have planned activities like most snowbird parks have. There is an exercise room and a pool table. The on-site restaurant was handy.

The rate reflects the Good Sam discount. This is a good place to stay for an overnight or while visiting in the area. The water pressure was good. Sprint and Verizon worked well. The interstate can be noisy, and we heard trains, but the noise didn’t bother us. We would come again if in the area.

The rate reflects a weekly stay. You will need to add electricity to this rate. This is a spacious park with plenty of room to maneuver and generous sites. Our Sprint and Verizon worked well. There is a corral for horses, but we were far enough away the smell didn’t bother. There were two pages of rules. Water pressure was good. There was some road noise, but it quieted down late in the evening. There was train noise, but it wasn’t bad. The rooster crows every morning. Be careful entering and exiting the park onto the four-lane divided highway. We saw one horrible accident just down the road from the park.

Our escort was friendly and helpful. The pull-through sites are long, level, and somewhat narrow. We were able to avoid the tree and the log, and still be able to reach the utilities and open our bay doors. Most of the roads are paved which helped with the dust; until they speedily raked the sites. Water pressure was good. Cell Phone and Verizon MIFI worked well. Their signage was good. A few of the rules seemed excessive, like “Do not move the picnic tables”. The garbage truck came through at 5 am on Monday morning but other than that, it was a quiet park. We could even hear the Sand-hill cranes flying over.

We were assigned a site that backed up to a fence. It was good-sized; we could park our tow vehicle next to the rig. The interior roads are not paved and very dusty; the speed bumps are atrocious! Their website page that shows the rates can be misleading. The columns for ‘daily rate’ and ‘discount rate’ do NOT include the over 12 per cent sales tax. The ‘total rate’ column is based on the ‘discount rate’ plus sales tax. The water pressure was good; Sprint worked OK but the Verizon MIFI wasn’t consistent. Overall it was a pretty quiet park except for the unattended barking dogs. Paved roads would help justify the rate.

This park was in a good location for us. It is close to Amarillo, close to the town of Canyon, and close to Palo Duro Canyon. It was easy to find. The hookups are side by side. The water pressure was good. Our cell phone and Verizon Mi-Fi card worked well. There is some interstate noise and we heard a few faraway trains. There are no recycle bins in the park. Not all the interior roads loop around the end of the sites. Instead they dead-end at the property line. So occasionally you see people driving through the empty sites. The pull-through sites were long enough. We were able to choose one where the fence didn’t interfere with our slide. We would stay here again if in the area.

The rate reflects a week’s stay. The view from the front window of the RV was almost the best we have ever had in all our years of camping. A word of warning, use the GPS address on their website to find the park. The address built into your GPS may not be correct. If you come in via highway 82 going south, you’ll be making a left turn. The directional sign is at the corner. It is on the left; it is small, and it is difficult to see in time to slow down. The road coming in to the park is narrow and you’ll need to watch for low hanging branches and oncoming traffic. The Office does not have a sign on it that says “Office”. The lady that checked us in was efficient but less than helpful. When we arrived, our picnic table was filthy because the squirrels ate there a lot and our fire pit hadn’t been cleaned out. The site was level and there was a patio with a picnic table that overlooked the water. We used our water pressure regulator. Sprint and Verizon both worked well. We’d come again if in the area.

We had another nice stay at this campground. The roads and sites are paved. The sites have grass in between. Some sites are not as level as others. There are no showers; there is one vault toilet on the upper level next to the playground. Recycling is available next to the dumpster. There are several water hydrants in the park for fresh water. The dump station is on the way out. Some sites are 50amp and some are 30amp. All sites are back-in except for one. We will come again when in the area.

We stayed for a few days in our favorite site while visiting family. The drinking fountains along the paved trail already had the water shutoff. Several of the bathrooms and the camping loops were closed for the season. The sites seem to be 30 amp electricity. Most sites have a slope. Ours needed four inches of boards on the curbside to get level. This is a well-maintained park with “prime” sites that have great water views. If you have made your reservation online, be sure to stop at the office on your way in to pick up the tag for your pole. You will also need a park sticker for you vehicles.

This is a nice, neat, quiet campground just off the interstate. If you need satellite, be sure to say so when you make your reservation as there are a lot of trees. Our pull through site was long and level. Water pressure wasn’t too bad but then the campground was almost empty. There did seem to be a lot of Clorox (?) in the water based on smell and taste. They offer recycling with five different categories. The gravel road next to the campground could generate a lot of dust; with a south wind. It all came into the campground. Verizon and Sprint worked fine. The staff was friendly. No problem with staying here again.

This is a great campground to use as a base for spending some time in the Badlands. It was wonderful to watch the sun come up over the rock formations! Our site (#1) was level and long enough to make utility hookup go just fine. Water pressure was adequate. Verizon and Sprint for the most part worked OK; occasionally service was slow. The staff was friendly and helpful. Highway noise is minimal during the night. The state parks offer recycling. At our power box, there was no plug for a 110 connection. The 50amp sites seem to not have a sewer connection. If you want sewer, you will get a 30 amp connection. Several of the sites had tree branches hanging over the pad; they would need to be trimmed before you could use the site. The roads could be tight if the park is busy. We stayed until they closed for the season. We would stay here again.

Monthly rate is $15 per night but with taxes it is closer to $16. The staff was friendly and helpful. Water pressure could have been better; we would fill our tank and use the pump. Highway noise is minimal during the night. We were in a site facing the pasture with horses and cows. It was easy to level. The state parks offer recycling. Occasionally when we were walking in the lower section of the park we could smell sewer. The roads could be tight if the park is busy and they can be dusty. When the site next to us was empty, they said we could park our tow vehicle there and that was nice. When we had a neighbor, our site seemed small. Plus our neighbor’s sewer connection was in the middle so it was very close to us. Verizon and Sprint worked well. You can wash the rig if you use a bucket. We would stay here again

The sites are not all the same size; be sure to let them know what you need when you make the reservation. Drive a bit past the AmericInn to find the entrance to the campground on the left. Check-in was easy; we were escorted to our site. The road in our section was dirt and very dusty. We were in site 45; it was level and long enough to park the car in front. The picnic table was anchored and did interfere with us opening the bay doors. There wasn’t enough width to the pad to move the rig over enough so the doors would clear. Water pressure was adequate. Verizon and Sprint worked fine. We did not use their cable service or their Wi-Fi. You can recycle at the state park visitor center. There was a train nearby but it does not blow its whistle. There was no restriction on washing the rig. We would stay here again if in the area. The rate reflects a weekly stay.

Because of the oil boom, this park is expanding its number of sites. We were in the transient section of six pull-through sites. The sites were plenty long, but dropped off quite a bit in the front. The roads and sites are gravel and pretty rough. Watch out for the speed bumps. The park is in a good location, easy to get to and shopping is close by. The rate reflects a weekly stay. We would stay again if in the area.

There are only four sites with 50amp service, two on top of the hill and two in the “gully.” We put 4 inches of boards on the downhill side of site 16. The park wasn’t mowed when we got here; it looked very shabby. Someone did mow the second day and trimmed around the utility poles but not around the bushes or trees. The sites are all pull-through but the roads are just one lane with the sites at a 90 degree angle to the roads. No one in town seemed to know where to recycle. Water pressure was adequate. We didn’t hear a train; the interstate was below us so the noise from it wasn’t bad. We were asked not to run our a/c if we weren’t in the rig. We’d come again only if we could have site 1 or site 16. The park wasn’t busy and since we never had a rig on our downhill side, we had a great view to the west.

This RV Park is at the Recreational Complex and has a four day limit on your stay. We had 50 amp and water for $15 a night. There is a dump station as you exit and it is pretty busy on Sundays with everyone coming in from camping elsewhere. The roads and sites are gravel; some sites are pull-through. The water pressure was excellent. There is an occasional train passing nearby, but it'd not enough to bother.

Their nightly rate is $41 but if you pay for six nights, you get the 7th night free. You will want to pay close attention to the dip at the entrance ‘gate’ and all the over-sized speed bumps. The roads are gravel as are the sites. Not all sites are the same size and not all have easy access or patios. Our neighbor’s sewer connection was about a foot off our patio. The water pressure could have been better. Our internet card and cell phone worked well. There is a good ¾ mile walking trail around the park but no swimming pool or spa. You can recycle cans at the office via someone’s grandson. We didn’t notice any road noise or train noise. No problem coming here again. We had a great view out our front window. There doesn’t seem to be any signage to help as you get close to the park but Rand McNally GPS routed us in just fine. When you leave, if you want to get on I-25 north, make sure you don’t end up at the dead end; the entrance ramp has been moved.

The rate reflects a monthly stay and only the ‘rent’ part of what they charge. The layout was a mixture of park models and RV sites that was built some time ago. The streets are paved and somewhat narrow; be careful of the overhanging tree branches when you drive your rig down the south perimeter road. Our escort helped us back in with a minimum of difficulty. The site was crushed rock and level and plenty wide to park the toad beside the rig. We backed up to a park model; there was talk of a five foot easement, but we saw numerous violations of this. There was a paved patio but no picnic table. The residents are exceptionally friendly. The water pressure was good. Our internet card and cell phone worked well. This place is just off I-10 so there was road noise and train noise. The facilities were neat and clean; the park is well maintained. Bookwork at the office is a combination of manual and computerized. They only take cash or checks. You will want to make sure you keep track of everything for yourself. Rates and add-ons explained at the time we made the reservation were different when we pulled in, especially with regards to electricity. There was a two page rental agreement, 10 pages of “guidelines for your comfort and protection”, and 7 more pages of “welcome” information. Even then, some rules/responsibilities were not well defined and when we asked for clarification, there were several different explanations.

The rate reflects their four night special. It is an easy on/off the interstate. The park itself is all gravel with some shade trees. Our site was large and level with plenty of room for our toad. The water pressure was good. Our internet card and cell phone worked well. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again when in the area as it was perfect for what we needed. Be sure to go into town to Big Tex Barbeque.

The rate reflects a monthly stay; add electricity at .13 per kilowatt. There is plenty of room to maneuver. Our huge pull through ‘view’ site was level, well packed gravel. There was a paved patio and a picnic table. There is nice landscaping between each site. The staff was friendly and had lots of information about the area. Both the check-in and check-out process was very organized and efficient. The water pressure could have been better. Our MIFI card worked well but the service for the Sprint cell phone was spotty. This campground is out in the country and very quiet. The facilities were very nice and included an indoor pool, hot tub, exercise area, full kitchen, pool table, lending library and so forth. The laundry and showers were neat and clean. Recycling was available. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again as there is lots to do within a 100 mile radius.

The rate reflects a weekly stay. The sites and roads are gravel and well packed. The staff was friendly and helpful. Cell service and service for our internet card was good. There wasn’t much street noise and only an occasional train. There are trees for shade, but we were in the “short-term” row, so there wasn’t much shade, which made it easy to find the satellite. Watch out for the speed bump as you come into the campground.

The rate reflects a weekly stay. The roads are gravel and well packed. The staff was friendly and gave us a tour of the facilities. We had an escort to our site. The landscaping is well done and just needs to grow a bit. There is a cell tower in the campground. Our site was level and had a paved patio without a picnic table. There is plenty of room to maneuver. The facilities are clean and nice; there is a full kitchen you can use with permission. We enjoyed a campfire at the communal fire pit; everything was furnished. There are ghost towns to visit, the Space Port to tour, and of course everything to do that comes with a huge lake. T&C has restaurants and some shopping. It also has marvelous mineral spring pools that we highly recommend. We wouldn’t hesitate to come again if in the area.

In September and October they raise the $10 per night to $20 per night because of the state fair and the balloon fest. It’s a gravel parking lot and the sites tend to slope downhill. Pick your site and go into the Casino to pay and have security unlock your electrical box. Fuel at the truck stop next door was very reasonably priced. Even with I-25 and the truck stop close by, we were not bothered by the noise. There is a dump station and fresh water available. It’s good for one night or two.

The rate reflects a weekly stay. The campground is located about three blocks off the main highway. It’s not an impressive three blocks, but once you get in the campground you will find good gravel roads and generous, gravel sites with room to maneuver. We were backed up to the river in a level, 50amp full hookup site. There are nice shade trees but we were able to find our satellite by putting the dish to the front of the site. There are good washers and dryers in the laundry room and they are free. Cell service and service for our internet card was good. The only negative was that the security light in our section of the park wasn’t working so it was very dark in our corner. Actually that was a plus when the stars were out at night. We wouldn’t hesitate to come again.

There is a long row of full hookup sites with lots of room to back in. There were some sites occupied by extended stay workers, but we noticed quite a few rigs come in just for one night. It is a good alternative to the campground out by the interstate. They could improve the signs to make the turn off highway 25 more noticeable. The manager lives on site; be sure to ask about weekly and extended stay rates. We have always felt safe here and will come again.

This is a great bargain for paved roads and paved sites with access to the lake and trails. There are no showers or laundry. The one vault toilet is on the upper level next to the playground. Fresh water is available at several hydrants in the park. There is a dump station on the way out. There are a few sites with 50 amp service but it is hard to find one empty at this time of year. They only take reservations for clubs so call for availability. There is a garbage dumpster and recycling across from the residence. The nearby Sumter Theater has programs during the summer. You can use the access trail or you might be able to hear the music from your campsite.

We were escorted to our site by the friendly camp host. We were in a long, wide site with side by side hookups. If we would have had a neighbor, their rig would have been to our back side. There are good gravel roads and sites, paved patios, soft water, the usual rules. The water pressure could have been better. Due to dry conditions, the gravel roads were very dusty. We were not impressed by the entrance, but wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.

The $30 reflects the daily rate (there are no discounts) plus tax. Be sure to plan your route getting into this campground; there is no exit off of highway 53 at 50th street. If you come in by driving west on Canal Street from downtown, there are signs to direct you but the road is pretty rough. We came from Wausau on highway 29 and got on highway 124 via the roundabout, we did not see a campground sign until we were ¼ miles away from the entrance. When we pulled in, there were two police cars at one of the sites; whether they were visiting or at work, we didn’t ask. There were also two huge puddles in the main road that were unavoidable. We were assigned to a site with a huge dip right in the middle; when it rained, we would have been sitting over a big puddle. We revised our plans for a shorter stay and were reassigned to a corner site. We backed in at an angle in order to avoid another large puddle of water. Even so, the ground at our front step squished. Defined pads were non-existent. The new section of pull-through sites are grass and look pretty uneven. There seemed to be electricity and water at these sites, no sewer. One morning the septic service guy came and started his work at 6:30am. The only dumpster was over-flowing when we arrived; it was finally emptied two days later. It rained again the morning we left; more puddles in the campsite! As you can tell, we won’t be back.

The rate reflects an eight day stay. We agree with the previous reviews. We were able to pick a nice pull through site in the side by side section. Luckily we didn’t have a close neighbor so pulling out of the 90 degree angle site wasn’t a problem. Not all sites have all the services. Our welcome packet included maps and plenty of information on the area. GPS may direct you to the downtown; we used the owner’s verbal instructions and found the campground right away. It is on “north” River Road. Unfortunately, our last night there, one group of campers stayed up until around 5am. The talking, laughing, and vehicle door banging was quite obvious even though we used a fan for “white noise”. We were disappointed that quiet time was not enforced. There is plenty to do in the area and we would come here again.

We had a generous back-in site with a great view of the waterway. Motorhomes should consider pulling in forward. All the services worked well and the staff was friendly and helpful. We found all the positive comments in previous reviews to be true. We wish we could have stayed longer.

The rate reflects a monthly rate with 50amp service. The signs directing us to turn off the main highway could have been more obvious. They are hard to see because of all the other signs. We knew to turn between a gas station and a bank; that was how we found it. Most sites are generous and there is plenty of room to maneuver. The water pressure was excellent even during the major holiday weekend. One negative was the puddles after a heavy rain storm; especially the big one by the office. Host and her staff were friendly, helpful, and we always felt ‘at home’. There is plenty to do in the area and we wouldn’t hesitate to come here again.

This is one of our most favorite campgrounds. Has paved roads, paved sites, great landscaping and lots of room between sites. The pads are level and generous in size; easy to get in and out. We stayed just a few days to visit family and would not hesitate to come again.

The rate reflects a weekly stay. We were told we could pick which of the empty 50amp pull-through sites we wanted. It had rained recently so they all had standing water and mud. The tires on our motor home got filthy just driving into the site. Then it rained again so there were more puddles and more mud. There was a large paved patio at our site; be sure to allow room for your step to come out. Our row had nice grass between the sites. Except for much needed rock/gravel on the ‘runways’, the campground maintenance is better than most campgrounds. We didn’t use the Wi-Fi; there was very good cable service. Road noise was minimal. We enjoyed our stay and would come again.

The rate reflects a full service site discounted with a camping coupon. This is a beautiful state park with a nice lake and friendly staff. On this visit, we were in site 57. The back of the site was very soft and a prior tenant had left two deep holes (probably made with his jacks) that we managed to avoid. Other than that, we have no complaints. The birds were singing, the crappies were biting and we enjoyed our stay. There was a bulletin saying that the lake was scheduled to be drawn down after the July 4th weekend for maintenance.

The rate reflects a monthly stay; you need to add electricity and be prepared to pay via cash or check. This is an easy to find two miles from I-35; the culvert is painted yellow. There wasn’t much road noise and we never heard a train. There are rules you need to follow but nothing unusual; be sure to obey the speed limit. We had excellent water pressure. The roads and sites are hard-packed gravel. One night we had a heavy rain and the next morning the only puddle was out by the highway. Our pull through site was easy to level. The shower/laundry room was always neat and clean; the washers seemed to do a minimum of agitation with a spray rinse; this was new to us. We couldn’t find a place to recycle in Salado, in Belton, or at any of the COE Parks with the exception of Granger. With all the lakes and interesting towns close by, we had no problem keeping busy for a month. We would definitely return if in the area.

We have stayed in this park before and would return again. It is nestled among the oaks so care is needed when entering and exiting the park and your site. The owner is not aggressive about trimming branches that love to scratch your rig. The newer area in the back has fewer trees which made satellite setup easier. Our pad was paved and it had a paved patio with a nice picnic table. The resident owners are friendly and helpful. The water pressure could have been better. When it rains, the roads are messy and there are large puddles that take a while to go away especially in the new area. Every couple of weeks or so, the owners hosted an event in the recreation hall. Of course, food is involved and occasionally entertainment. The rate reflects a monthly stay and you’ll need to add electricity to it.

The nightly rate reflects a discount for cash. It was perfect for what we needed which was an easy overnight stay. Setup was a breeze because of the level, wide, long paved sites. The cement factory did give us an early morning wake up call which was the only reason it didn't get a 10.

We stayed a month in this campground ($220 + electricity) and everything worked just fine. The water pressure was excellent. We were on the upper tier with 50amp; the slanted, gravel sites are level with plenty of room to back in and to park your extra vehicle. The hook-ups are towards the back of the site. The owners were friendly and there is plenty to do in the area.

We stayed a week in this campground ($20 a night, $100 for a week) and everything worked just fine; there was excellent water pressure.

We usually don’t have a problem finding our way to a ‘new-to-us’ campground; but this time we did. When you are going north on highway 77 and looking for where to turn left, the Flagstop Resort sign is on the right side of the highway but it is located past where you actually make the turn. Plus, if sunlight is reflecting off the sign, it is very hard to read. So when you see the green highway sign that points to the left and says ‘Milford’, turn there. After that, there is not another sign that says ‘Flagstop’ until you reach the entrance. You will need to watch for one of those small, square signs with a trailer on it so you know where to make the next left into the neighborhood. There is only one entrance and one exit. This campground caters to seasonal tenants. A lot of the sites have a rig and a boat plus an abundance of ‘stuff’ outside. We encountered low hanging trees and large speed bumps. There are some side by side hookups which puts you very close to your neighbor. We were in a full service site at the end of a row and enjoyed our view of the city park. Our site was level, hard-packed dirt, but not all sites looked at good as this one. The services all worked well. We would stay again if we got this same site.

We always enjoy our visits to this campground. It is quiet with only occasional train noise. Sometimes there are activities in town that cause the campground to be busy but usually there are sites to pick from. The area is patrolled and even if we are the only rig, we feel safe.

This is a beautifully maintained park; I'm sure having the annual sticker helps with the cost of maintenance. We usually stay in the Midway section. Our favorite site is advertised as 50amp service but we had only 30amp this time. Plus the pavement is sinking causing us to have to raise our curb-side several inches. It is very busy on the weekends but during the week it gets quiet.

This campground is easy to find, easy to access, and less expensive than any in Sioux Falls. We stayed here several times during the summer and always found things in good shape.

This is a great campground. There are no water or sewer hookups but there are several spigots where you can fill with fresh water. There are no showers and only one public bathroom near the playground. Not all sites have 50amp service. The roads and the sites are paved with nice green space between the sites. The camp hosts were very accommodating. They only take reservations for clubs so be sure to call ahead to see what is available. The ambience of this campground is wonderful; fall visits are especially nice. We will definitely stay here again.

We did an extended stay here this summer which is reflected in the rate. The water pressure could have been better. The roads do need some work, but if you obey the speed limit, you’ll do fine. I-80 is getting widened so that accounts for the construction noise. The restaurant and bar are handy and the pool is immaculate. The owners work hard to keep everything in good shape and we will continue to stay here when in the area.

We came in for a one night stay to meet some friends that were camped here. Otherwise we would have picked another park. The staff was courteous and friendly; they let us drive around the sites and pick one that would match our needs. Our site looked level but we ended up having to raise the front end about three inches. The pricing structure is confusing as it varies from site to site based on length and services. There is an airport close by and a truck terminal close by, so if you want peace and quiet during daylight hours, this is not the place. For the price, I would expect paved roads, pads, and patios. We would stay here again if needed, but would try the campground at Canton first. Presently there isn’t a review for it, but it is in the directories.

We came in for a one night stay. The staff was courteous and friendly. This is a well-maintained facility. If your site is on the upper level, be sure to swing wide to avoid the trees and other obstacles at the entrance to some of the sites. We didn’t use any of the amenities so for us the wrist bands were an annoyance; we didn’t even put them on. For the price, I would expect paved roads, pads, and patios.

This is a family owned campground and they do not offer any discounts. We had a pull through site that paralleled the interior road and we fit OK. Our curbside faced an open area with a playground, grass, and trees. We enjoyed watching the rabbits play in the morning. We would have rated them higher but the entrance off very busy highway 24 was rough with a fairly steep slope; if there are vehicles parked at the store there isn't much room to maneuver.

Overall all, we enjoyed staying at this park. We had one of the paved patio sites on the end, and it was a nice fit. The daily rate was $41 and since we stayed a week, we paid for six nights and got one night free. We didn’t use the WI-FI but we heard complaints about it. They recycle aluminum cans at the office. It was a quiet place with no road or train noise. We didn’t enjoy the speed bumps at all. Water pressure was marginal. We would stay here again, but feel that for the price, the pads should be paved.

This is a gravel parking lot with well-defined sites. The only service at the sites is electricity but there is a dump station and a source for fresh water. Noise from the travel center and the interstate was hardly noticeable. The hook-ups are side by side, but unless the campground starts to fill up, you shouldn’t have a close neighbor. We would have no problem staying here again; the price was right for the services we received.

The rate of $16.39 reflects a week’s stay with 50amp service. The water pressure was awesome even when the park was full. The roads and sites were hard-packed dirt and gravel. Our site was level and we had room to adjust for the trees on either side of our rig so our slides would come out without touching the trees. The staff was friendly and helpful. This park doesn’t have the amenities of some but it was perfect for our stay in the area. They do not charge extra for giving your rig a bucket bath. We would stay here again and we would recommend it to others. Be sure to go to the WOW Diner on the other side of the interstate; excellent food and excellent service. The area doesn’t seem to promote recycling; we finally took our items to Grants Recycling on highway 117. There are train tracks close to the park and there are a lot of trains going through but not many use their whistle.

This is a nice, well-maintained RV park with good paved interior roads. We were in the new section with paved pads and gravel sites. These sites had plenty of room for our motorhome and our dinghy. The staff is friendly and helpful; we were escorted to our site. There is interstate noise; the volume depends on where you are in the park. You can recycle some things at the office or better yet, at the Petroglyphs National Monument. The $30 reflects a weeks stay. We paid for 6 nights and got the 7th night free. When we needed to stay several more nights, they took us back to the daily rate. Photocopies made at the office will cost you 25 cents each. If you want to give your rig a bucket bath, it will cost you $20. We had poor water pressure at times and finally filled our fresh tank and used our pump rather than the shore water. The continental breakfast was cereal, toast, and bagels; we would rather eat in our rig and have a reduction in the rate. We didn’t use the WiFi, cable TV or bathrooms so can’t comment on those. We would stay here again but might look around first to see what else is available.

Everything is gravel with side by side hookups. Very few 50 amp sites; we had to use adapter to get 50 amp as all 50 amp sites were occupied when we pulled in. There is train noise but after a while you don’t notice it at all. We were checked in by a sweet lady of some years; I enjoyed getting to know her. The rate reflects a week’s stay. We would stay again if in the area. You can recycle at the Bosque Refuge.

We stayed a week and really enjoyed the area. There is plenty of room for the big rigs to maneuver. Everything is gravel and the sites are well marked with plenty of room. If you have a rear window, a back-in site will probably give you a great view. The only negative was that our site appeared level, but it actually sloped to the front enough that we had to put the front up on blocks. The rate reflects a weekly stay and includes the extra dollars for electricity. We would stay here again if in the area and will recommend it to our friends. They did not offer recycling, but there was a recycling center on the left as you went back into town.

The WiFi signal wasn’t the best; at times we had two or three minute response time. The staff was friendly. They have a place for recycling which is always a plus for us.

This is a very nice, upscale resort, not a campground. The roads are paved, the sites are pea gravel and everything is neat and clean. The check-in staff person was very business-like; the escort was friendly. We were in a pull-thru site (the rigs alternate in direction) and there was a barrier (fence/trellis, bushes and other foliage) between us and our curb-side neighbor which gave some privacy. Our neighbor on the street-side was up close and personal. We never opened a window or a shade on that side. To recycle, we were told we could take our things to Wal-Mart. For all three mornings, the free breakfast offered nothing hot except for what we toasted. There are several different ways you can pay less than their normal nightly rate which totals close to $50; a simpler rate structure might be easier for everyone. We had a coupon letting us buy two nights and get the third night free so we paid not quite $100 for three nights. We would stay here again but not at their normal rate.

The WI-FI was OK most of the time, but not always. For a nominal charge, you can wash your RV or vehicle at their wash pad. The extra cost was not a problem, but it would have been more convenient to wash our motorhome at the site rather than take it to the wash pad. The pine trees were weepy. From Alpine, to drive to Big Bend and sight-see, it is a long day trip. This is a nice campground, and we would stay here again.

Wow is all we can say. We planned to stay a month and stayed almost two months. One of the best resorts we have been in. We agree with previous comments and want to add that the weekly ‘tech talks’ during the winter months were very helpful. With regard to reservations, schedule adjustments, and most things in general, we were treated like responsible adults. This was very refreshing. Our only suggestion would be that they start having recycling available. The rate reflects a monthly rate plus electricity.

We stayed in this campground for the months of November & December. The owners left for the winter but the assistant managers took good care of everything. The campground was about one-fourth filled with most of these sites occupied by people who worked in the area. This made for a quiet campground which we really enjoyed. There was no traffic or train noise. On the upper level, there is a generous amount of space to back into the sites and the sites have good space in-between. When it rained, some of the sites on the lower level, had pools of water. Local propane businesses only deliver to the park if you are going to take 100 gallons or more. The WI-FI was excellent for most of our stay; during the last week the service was intermittent. You can recycle cans and plastic at the Chickasaw NRA. The rate does not include what we paid for electricity.

As you approach the campground, the exit comes first and then the entrance. Our pull-through was nice and level with the utilities well-placed. The staff will not only pickup the garbage in the AM, but if you package recyclables (aluminum, plastic etc) in a see-through bag, they will pick up those also. There was good water pressure, but WI-FI wasn’t the best on a rainy day when everyone stayed home. We could see a cell phone tower, but did not have good service with Sprint. Baileys Harbor is on the east side of the peninsula about half way up into Door County. This makes it an excellent location for day trips. We picked up a county road map for Door County, and that was very useful. Management staff was helpful with information about the area. We would have no problem staying here again for an extended period of time.

This campground was recommended by friends and we were glad we came. Because of the time of year, it was not busy and that was a plus. We didn’t hear any road noise; only an occasional fog horn in the far distance. There are plenty of trees and that made maneuvering interesting. Be sure to tell them you have a satellite when making the reservation. There is recycling available for aluminum cans. We almost missed the sign directing us off the highway (it’s on the left side); the lettering needs painted. Our site was generous; the trees didn’t interfere with the slides. The utilities were well placed. The Wi-Fi throughout the park does not apply to all sites; we had to go to the laundry room for a good connection. The water pressure could have been better.

We stayed here because it has full service with 50amp. The roads were good, but very dusty. WIFI was not always wonderful. They do not heat the swimming pool after Labor Day. The staff was very helpful with maps and information about the area. The sites were wide, level, and long enough to accommodate both our rig and our dinghy. The utility placement was convenient and didn’t interfere with our bay doors or our slides. They do recycle cans. Yes, there is constant interstate noise. There is shade if you want it, but if you are going to use your satellite, be sure to tell them when you make the reservation.

Our days here included the holiday so we made our reservation (for a week) early and made them for a specific site. There is one row of sites that have the utility connections that have the rigs back-to-back. Our friends made their reservation for the site across from us so our doors would open to the same common area. About two weeks before arrival, the campground called us to confirm that we were coming. Several days before arrival, we called the campground to confirm the reservation. She said all was fine but she would check her paperwork and call if there was a problem. When we arrived, there was only one rig in our whole row and it was in the site we had reserved. Someone in the office had made a mistake and rented the site for part of our week. They asked us to park in a different site. Needless to say, we were not happy campers and it got messy. Other than that, we very much enjoyed our week. They have a place where you can recycle cans and cardboard. There are 100 permanent sites. The side by side sites were nice whether you have friends across from you or not. Placement of the utility hookups in conjunction with the length of the site made it easy to get set up. There is no swimming pool but they have an area of the lake roped off for swimming. There were so many local people that came for the holiday weekend along with their friends, that parking and navigating the roads was a problem. Every site was filled and the open area that we thought would be reserved for tents had trailers parked every which way. The quiet time rule was not enforced. This is a family friendly resort (four playgrounds) with a full service restaurant and bar. The homemade pies are excellent. Everything is well-maintained and the setting with the lake, the river, and the hills is quite nice. The WI-FI seemed to be better the closer you are to the office.

This is a typical fairground campground but with full service and 50 amps it met our needs. The campground is easy to access off the main street and the road is good. The level, grass sites are all back in and there is plenty of room to maneuver. They also offer weekly and monthly rates. Our only complaint was the ‘puncture vines’ that liked to stick to everything. We would have no problem staying here again.

We stayed at this park for several nights in the ‘skinny’ row. The sites had plenty of length for our 40’ motorhome and our dinghy. We were able to position so the utilities didn’t block our bay doors from opening. The rock/gravel pads were level but very narrow. Even though we were centered on the pad, our street-side slide hung over our neighbors paved patio. Our neighbors setup their grill to the front of their rig and ate their supper using a picnic table at an empty site. The roads seemed tight and narrow but we saw a 45’ rig with a 20-25’ trailer navigate just fine. The staff is friendly, helpful and we would not hesitate to stay here again for a short time.

When the hotel was still there, there was a campground behind it with 30amp sites. That is still there. The hotel has been replaced with a line of full-service, back-in, 50amp sites. There is more than ample room to maneuver at these new sites. Cable service is excellent. There is a beautiful library in town for WiFi. There wasn’t any shade. Recycling is available behind the Catholic church. Highway 20 can get busy during the day but we didn’t have any problem with road noise at night. The town of Atkinson has a lot to offer. Bicycle riding around town is easy or you can take the Cowboy Trail either east or west out of town. The staff is friendly and helpful.

The interior roads need work; you will want to observe the speed limit. Management did some patches during the time we were there. Our site was graveled; it was a long, level pull-thru in the back row with a great view and minimal interstate noise. The grassy area between the sites was very generous. The laundry room was clean and not expensive. WI-FI was $20 a month and we didn’t have any problems with it. The bathrooms are very nice. The resident owner does have rules and they are enforced. The dumpster is located at the entrance/exit to camp. Next to it are bins for recycling. The staff was nice, gracious, and very eager to help. They work hard and keep the facilities in good shape. We stayed here two months over the summer while we visited family and would not hesitate to come again. The $18 is a monthly rate plus metered electricity.

We camped here for two weeks in a full service site. If you make your reservation online the fee brings the nightly rate to almost $20. Going in without a reservation makes it easy to buy coupons which saves $3 per night. The roads are paved and the sites are crushed rock. Most of the sites have enough slope that it could make a larger rig difficult to level. The staff keeps the park well-maintained and makes sure the rules are followed. We have camped here several times and have always enjoyed our stay. It is almost always full on the weekends. We would like to see recycling offered.

This is a City of Papillion RV Park with paved sites and paved roads. Some sites have 30amp and some have 50amp. The sites are spacious with nice landscaping, a paved patio and a spot to park your vehicle. There are several water hydrants and a dump station. There is no cable or WI-FI but the batwing works fine for the major TV channels. The park is clean, neat, and well kept. Next to the dumpster, there are containers for recycling. We camp here often. They are usually full on the weekends.

The City RV Park in Auburn offers 50amp service and water at each site. There is a dump station. The interior road and the sites are all crushed rock but the grass seems to be taking over the sites. In all the times we have been here, it has not been busy and we’ve had our pick of sites. Even though the location is on the edge of town, we have always been safe. There is no WIFI or cable. For us it’s the perfect place to stay while we visit relatives in the area. We did get stickers in our bicycle tires which caused one flat tire. They do not offer recycling.

The “B” loop sites (62-97) are full service with 50amp but they are close together with narrow roads and deteriorating pads. Many of them are sloped enough that it can be a challenge to level a motorhome. Sites 98-112 are better. “B” loop sites have an unusual pattern. We saw people who were unfamiliar with the layout have to ‘go around’ and come back in to get going the right way to get into their site. When we come back, we would camp in “C” loop. It has full service sites with 30amp and is more spacious. This park, and the ones close by, offer great hiking trails and the Prairie Wind Rail Trail starts at Ottawa goes south for over 30 miles. We enjoyed good food and free WIFI at the Whistle Stop Café in Melvern. The rate reflects a Senior Pass discount. We would like to be able to recycle at this park.

This is a nice park. At our site, W11, we had excellent WIFI and excellent water pressure. Setting up the satellite dish could be a problem at some sites because of the trees and the power lines along the road. The park sits on a hill and there is a pretty good slope as you drive into the sites and as you exit the sites. Our pad was level and there were two sewer connections, one at the back of the site and one more to the middle. The park’s location at the intersection of two interstates made it easy to get around the city. The price reflects a weekly rate. I would encourage the park to have recycling available for its guests.

This is a fairly new park that is working on expansion and fine-tuning. There are cement pads with a small cement patio at each site. Most of the sites have good space in-between. A few of the sites have landscaping. The recreation hall is nice; there was just one planned activity during the 45 days we were there. There is no Wi-Fi or cable service. We would like to see the park offer a place to recycle, especially cans. If you have a rig of any size or height, watch carefully for the gnarly oak trees that are everywhere. The oaks add much to the ambiance of this campground, plus they provide shade and protection from the wind. There is the opportunity to do damage to a rig as we witnessed several times. Even though the work-camper came and trimmed branches at our site, there wasn’t room to use our awning. If you want peace and quiet, this is the place. the $8 rate reflects a monthly stay. Electricity was extra. We would camp here again if we could pick the site.

We paid $530 for one month plus electricity. They accept cash or check but no credit cards. This is an over 55 park with lots of activities catering to winter Texans. There is a weekly activity schedule, assigned mail boxes, and a key card to access some places. A work-kamper took us around on a golf cart so we could pick our site. Some of sites needed the trees trimmed and others just didn't allow enough turning radius for a large rig. We picked our site and then found that the service was only 30amp. The staff had us upgraded to 50amp within 24 hours. Our neighbors awning (when extended) is about 7 feet from the side of our rig. The sites are mainly filled by park models and the RV's fill in on the empty places. The wi-fi is an extra charge and is very poor. They are "working on it". We would stay here again when visiting the Valley.

We paid $300 a month plus electricity and stayed for two months. The owners live on-site and do everything they can to make you feel welcome and part of the family. The new Lodge (clubhouse) is a magnet for all the campers as well as the guests at the various cabins. There is a full kitchen, fireplace, TV, pool table, and lots of room for quilting and other activities. Because of the drought, the lake was dry but enjoyed our stay anyway. The wi-fi is secure and it is good. The sites are easy to get into and have paved patios. We also stayed here early in 2007 before their official opening and will stay here again. When we were ready to leave this time, there was a going-away party for us; you can't beat that!

We found it confusing to find the right direction to get into the campground. Almost all the sites were already occupied when we got there which was about 3PM. All but one of the sites are double; you park end to end and there are two sets of hookups. A lot of the stores in the outlet mall are closed or closing soon. This is a good campground for an overnight stop but there did seem to be some rigs setup on a more permanent basis.

The $27 reflects a weekly rate. The wi-fi is good but it is additional dollars. When you call for a reservation, make sure you are specific about what is needed. This was our second visit to this park and we stay here because it is the best park in Wichita when you are doing a quick visit.

We came late in the season to visit friends that were camped here. The roads had plenty of potholes. The sites were small but we were lucky to find a long enough one so there was room to adjust. The Wi-fi was good. Since it was so late in the season, there was no one at the office. On most days, someone would come to do whatever they needed to do and then leave again. It was a typical KOA; it was overpriced at $25.

This is a city park and doesn't take reservations unless you are coming in as part of a club. Not all the sites are 50 amps. There is a lake for fishing (you need a fishing license) and a nice, paved hike/bike trail. We got the three major channels on our batwing. We have camped here several times and will do so again.

We've stayed in this campground several times while visiting relatives in the area. The paved sites are level and have plenty of room between you and your neighbor. There isn't cable and our bat wing only got a couple of channels. The Casino is the main attraction for this area; we would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here just two nights. TV channels via the bat wing were good. Wi-Fi was good. It was the end of the season and the park wasn't full so that helped with dust and noise. Our only complaint was that the trees needed trimming. It was not easy to get into the site without scratching the rig. For us (2 adults) it was a good spot for a short stay.

This park has an unusual layout which wasn't a problem when we were there as it wasn't busy. We weren't always successful with the WIFI but the TV stations were OK. We stayed a couple of nights so we could visit the Badlands and the missle site. We would stay there again, but only for a short time.

We stayed a month in September. We didn't realize at first that they charge by the length of the rig. There can be a lot of highway noise which is annoying. The WIFI was good. Cable channels were limited and not all of them worked. It was windy at times and we did get tired of the long drives to see the area attractions. The sky on some nights was wonderful.

The $24 daily rate reflects a week spent in this campground. The interior roads were dusty and had quite a few potholes. Our weeks stay included Labor Day weekend so I had made a reservation ahead of time. The day before arrival I called to confirm. The owners said they would be gone on a trip when we got there so I asked for a site number that would be large enough and confirmed that we needed full service (water, 50amp, sewer) at the site. She said to use #12. We did. Towards the end of our stay, the water from our gray tank wasn't going away. When we called, the husband explained that there were some kind of valves at site 12, not sewer. Confused? We certainly were. We had only dumped the gray tank during the week, so as we left we went to their dump station to do the rest. We would only stay here again to visit family that live in Colby.
