All sites are pull-throughs. All roads and sites are gravel. Picnic table at each site. Easy on/off I-40. Free coffee for RVers in the camp store. $2 off $15 price coupon for Meteor Crater. Nice level sites with good amount of space between. Good voltage at power pedestal. We would return.

Park was hard to find due to road construction (No Signs). Park is small with 2 levels. Wouldn't recommend lower level for anything longer than 30ft. We were in site C5 pull-through. Getting into site can be tight with a 40 footer with toad because trees and telephone pole. We had to disconnect toad and still brushed tree branches with the side of our coach getting in. Friendly RVers and owners of the park. Many rules and says no using RV washers? Also didn't like the flood irrigating of sites. No warning and couldn't even walk around the coach. Didn't feel this park is as nice as the reviews say.

Paved roads and gravel sites with concrete pad and picnic table. Lady in the office was rude and non-accommodating when we wanted to move to site #355 in order to get satellite signal. She told us that we couldn't change sites, as a monthly stay person was coming in the following day (but you can't reserve specific sites). The park had assigned this site (camper hadn't requested site), and refused to allow us to switch. Needless to say, site #355 remained empty during our entire stay. We will not return to this park. Shame, as park otherwise seemed to be OK and the price was right (Passport America).

Paved roads and sites. Sites with gravel on site with concrete picnic table and pad, fire pit, area for tent or tent like shelter, charcoal grill, and side table. Easy to get to from Hwy-59. Nice large sites with beautiful view of lake on wooded setting. Was able to get satellite with our rooftop dome. Big rig friendly. We were in site C-2 (30 amp). We would return.

Paved roads and sites with concrete pad, picnic table, fire pit, charcoal grill, and area for tent or tent like shelter. Nice large sites with good amount of room in between sites. Big rig friendly. We were in Camp Area A, site #1. Price reflects winter rates (as of Dec 1). Approximately 25 miles off I-30 with many long winding roads. A great park, but not the most convenient to get to. We would return.

As mentioned, the entrance road is terrible. If we hadn't be pre-warned by your reviews, we would have turned around before staying because of their road. Once in, our stay was great on site #66 (pull-through). Beautiful setting on the river with level concrete sites. FREE laundry was a big plus since we are full-timers. We also had a nice high-speed connection on our Cingular/AT&T aircard. We would return to this park but hope they fix their entrance roads.

Big rig friendly. Gravel sites with paved roads. Nice store. Pool closed for winter. In between 2 RV dealers and within walking distance to Camping World. Close (2 miles) to Opry Mills Mall and other attractions. Staff was very friendly and park is quiet even though very close to highway. We were on site #402 (30 amp) and was able to get satellite reception with our dome. We would return to this park.

It's so good to be in an Escapees park again, like coming home to old friends, complete with HUGS. Well run and clean park with nice nature trails. We stayed on site 24. Never had any power issues as mentioned previously but was fairly cold while here, so no AC. Planned clubhouse events such as coffee socials, breakfasts/dinners, and daily social hour were great. We will return to this park.

Gravel roads/sites with grass between sites with small concrete pad that picnic table sits on. Majority of sites are pull-thru and fairly level. Campground is mostly open with medium sized trees in between most sites. Big rig friendly. We stayed on site 27 and would return.

You can tell they have put money into the park but is a shame they didn't smooth and level the roads, especially the sites before putting all the new gravel/stone down. Park is wooded but we were able to get satellite reception as the trees have lost much of their leaves this time of the year. Campground owners/hosts are VERY friendly and pleasant. Can't say it's a "Motorhome Resort" yet but would return. Now open year round.

Passport America park (good for 2 nights only) so we paid half price for full hookups (30amp). Not a fancy place. Most sites are "pull-in" (back out when you leave). Seems like someone with a nice big yard decided to put camp sites on it to make some extra money. The office is part of their home. Sites are grass with rough interior roads being gravel. Big-rigs can get easy but should stop when you first pull into park and walk to the office to check in, as there's not any great places to turn around. Although park is 10-12 miles off I-87, it's an easy drive. We would stay here again for a quick overnight stay.

Not a fancy campground but easy access and big rig friendly. Nice close access to Canada. Most sites are gravel/grass and large. Some sites not level with tire ruts and only 1 or 2 sites with 50 amp service. As mentioned, not many trees so easy to get satellite reception. Park host was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

As mentioned, Mary and Garry (owners) are very friendly and helpful. Park is also very well maintained and clean. WiFi on our site (#30) was a tad weak and fairly slow during peak times in the evening but fine other times. After staying in other local parks and those being nearly empty, I can see why this one is so busy. The only complaint would be, only 2 sites have 50 amp and asked not to wash clothes in campers since their sewer can't take the extra water. We would stay here again.

Definitely not a "Big Rig" campground. Dusty dirt roads that are tight, trees need to be cut back, and grass sites that are un-leveled. No sewer or 50amp services. Free boats but no longer offer free firewood. We arrived a day after rain and some areas of campground (roads and sites) had large ruts from rain runoff. Passport book said easy on/off interstate but is actually further than expected and not fun with big rigs. Although everyone was friendly, it seemed as though park is run by kids (teenagers).

Nice quiet centrally located "newer" park, especial great for Big Rigs. "Big rig" campgrounds are hard to find in this area. As mentioned, campground is mostly level un-wooded full-hookup pull-thru 50amp sites except the back row closest to the brook. Many sites have cable TV available but satellite users won't have trouble getting signal. Park is basically across the street from "Newfound lake". Park doesn't have a pool or planned activities but has a nice activity pavilion/hall. Nice campground for those taking advantage of local activities or full-timers. Only complaint would be if you are staying monthly, you are required to pay in full ahead of your stay (non-refundable), charged $3 per day for electric as they don't have meters and have to sign a "Lease agreement" like a seasonal.

Well kept park. Easy access from I-78 and mainly pull-thru sites. No pool, so much less kids in the park and many full-timers. Local area has many wineries, Yuengling, Mack Truck, Dorney Park and Cabela's. We were on the back row of the park closest to the interstate so there was a good amount of road noise. We would return to this park.
