We still like this campground for an overnight pull thru stop even though some of the badly broken site slabs need to be replaced and trees located on some sites need to be trimmed back to allow adequate space for slide outs. We did not disconnect our car but had an extension hose to reach the sewer dump. Several washers and dryers were available for us to get our laundry finished in the shortest amount of time possible. We will stay here again and hope the owners will be more sensitive to tree growth over the slab area.

When we arrived during working hours around 3PM there was a sign on the office door that said something to the effect of Closed for picking up the kids. Having never been to this park before plus the lack of obvious traffic flow direction signs made it difficult for us to find a drive through site with all the full timers already parked there. The cable connection for our site was on the opposite side from the electrical pedestal, but they had a long cable already attached even though it had to be run/thrown under our motorhome to connect it. Our Passport America rate was for cash, not credit card. For the price, this was an okay park for a one night stay.

Our Passport America site was a back-in and because our motorhome has no back window, our view of the lake was out the front windshield, hence the cheaper site near the passing exterior street instead of lakeside. The noisy exterior street is not a freeway, but there was a lot more traffic traveling at higher speeds than what we had expected. We would still have picked the same site just for the lake view. This is a nice park and we would stay here again.

Our camping rate was rolled into our one week package to visit multiple Disney parks so it's difficult to break out. We arrived at a nearby park the day before because check-in at Fort Wilderness isn't until 1pm even though you can play in any of the Disney parks all morning before check-in. In order to do this, you must "pre-register" at Fort Wilderness when they open to get your passes/tickets. The new hostess at Fort Wilderness had no clue that we could do this even though we were told by Disney telephone staff. We had to notify Fort Wilderness security that the motorhome next to our site had a large barking dog inside and they had left the windows open. We found little or no security patrol in Fort Wilderness resulting in offensive noise during quite hours and as late as 1AM. Fort Wilderness is over-run with kids driving ClubCars/Golf Carts that pay no attention to one-way traffic through camping loops. They also clog traffic throughout the entire park. We expected a much better experience at this park, but due to the total lack of security we won't return here.

Don't come here if it's raining. Our pull through site had 1 to 2 inches of standing water on both sides of our site making sure our shoes would be soaked for walking from the front to the rear of our RV. The electrical pedestal was surrounded in at least 2 inches of water more than 3 feet out. We tried multiple pull through sites to get good electrical power (in the rain) and found their 50 amp outlets were so old that we had to bend the L1 and L2 pins on our electrical plug out to make a constant contact. We won't come back here unless it's hot and dry.

We arrived after the front office was closed but was earlier advised by phone our assigned site number. The site numbers are not painted on the electrical pedestals, but instead on the center of the pavement entrance in faded white numbers. The campground host came by a couple hours after our arrival and collected our fee. Turn around for pull through sites to exit the park is the large paved boat ramp area. Lots of pine needles. This is a nice park and we would stay here again.

One of the best KOA parks we've ever seen. Only complaint is they need to reduce their water pressure, which was 120psi. Great trail for walking your dog. We stayed here 9 days.

Another over-priced KOA; and it’s an automatic $10 fee if you cancel your reservation unless you wait inside of 48 hours then they keep it all. The campground was virtually empty, so there’s no reason to make a reservation with a better campground just across the street. The entire campground and all sites are dirt with nothing for pets. We stayed here one night, but we won't ever make another reservation to stay here again!

At first glance this appears to be a great looking RV Park, but wait, there’s more. As previously noted by others, the railroad noise is constant. The RV Park has a very nice pond, but it is covered with green pond scum that generates the over abundance of mosquitoes at every site. Also as previously noted by others, there are plenty of full time outdated and ill-repaired RVs that have been grandfathered into the old park rules. The owners of this RV Park, Property Investments located in Irvine, CA, have hired a residential house inspector with no RV experience to manage the park. If you need help at this park go to the campground host or find the maintenance man. We will not stay here again.

We stayed here to visit Crater Lake NP, Rogue Gorge, and the six water falls. We would have given this park a higher score but the sites are too close together. There’s no local TV service, no cable TV service, and our site was too wooded for satellite TV. We did have Verizon Air Card and cell phone service. The mosquitoes were aggressive and plentiful. The pizza place across the street is worth the extra cost, and they really pile on the toppings.

The price shown is based on Passport America membership. The folks here are very friendly, but it is real country and most appear to be full time residents. Our gravel pull through site was long enough to accommodate the tow car without disconnecting. We stayed here one night to visit Lassen NP. Entrance road into this RV park needs a lot of work so go slow.

This is a great park to visit Napa and ride the Napa Valley Wine Train. The sites are concrete and the security gate is locked at night. Make your reservations early as there are only about 18 sites, but all sites are large pull throughs, long enough for any motorhome including the tow car without being disconnected.

We used this park to visit Yosemite NP. There was no Verizon Internet service or cell service. Because this KOA is built on the side of a hill, the WiFi was unusable 200 feet from the office at the top of the hill. The turn around area at the office is around a tree so it’s better to disconnect at the bottom of the hill (entrance) if you’re towing a car.

This park is at the front door of Sequoia NP but has limited pull through sites, so reserve early. Staff was very friendly and helpful. No Verizon cell phone or air card reception and too wooded for satellite reception but park provides good cable TV. There was no WiFi. Price is for 50 amp full hook up, pull through site.

This is an excellent park to visit Hoover Dam, Ethel M Chocolate Factory, and Lake Mead activities. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Good cell phone reception, Verizon air card internet service, satellite reception, and cable TV. Price is for 50 amp full hook up, lake view concrete site, but lake level was low.

Price is based on Passport America membership and staying two nights for $34. The park had solid 50 amp electrical power and was convenient to visit the Petrified Forest National Park. Although the park is located close to Interstate 40, there are three sites, 20 through 22, where we were assigned that are furthest from the freeway and very quiet. We would stay here again.

Oasis is not a Passport America Park, but because it was advertised as such, we had to pay only $20. This is one park where you can wash your RV and the cement slab sites make it worth while. It’s close to Cadillac Ranch and it’s probably the best park we’ve found for the price.

Rate reflects Passport America Club membership. I would have given this park a 10 if the sites were a bit further apart. Most sites appear to be occupied by monthly or yearly renters. We would stay here again.

We stayed here three nights and remember it being a lot better last year. The creek flooded its banks and made the pet walk area very muddy but did not effect our camp site. There was loud music Saturday night in our area until at least 11pm, which helped cover up the trains blowing their horns. I have to agree with other posts about the staff not being helpful/friendly. We had to ask where our camp site was and how to get to it. It appeared that the lonely male staff member checking in campers really didn't want to be there working. We will probably look for another campground next time we are in San Antonio.

We would have given this campground a ten, but you had to drive a half a mile or so to take your garbage to their trash compactor. There are no local trash cans and they don't pick up. We had a great view out our front window of the river, but had to plug into the outlets next to us because their sites are designed to back-in instead of drive in forward. The staff were very nice about letting us do this because it was only for one night and there were no other campers in our section (312-315).

Sites are dirt and pea gravel so expect mud if it rains. We thought is was over priced as most KOAs are, but this park is close to the fair grounds for the Balloon Fiesta. Propane was $2.53/gallon so we didn't buy any here.

Great park for big rigs at a very reasonable price. This park allows you to wash your rig at no additional cost. If you have pets let them know so they can assign you a site close to the grassy area or you'll be walking. We had strong West Texas winds from the South.

Sites here are level and asphalt with an electrical supply that drops quickly from 130vac down to 107vac or lower with a draw of 30 amps. No shade trees for satellite users. The staff forgot to turn off the hard rock outdoor speakers at the pool so we thought we just had noisy neighbors, until 9:30 the next morning when we asked the staff member why the outdoor speakers were playing but the pool was closed. They need a shut down checklist. The laundry/bath house was clean and had the capability for air-conditioning but we found no thermostat to try to turn it on and cool it down. KOA has made little, to no improvement in what used to the Sunshine RV Park: but the rates have gone from $25-30 up to $45 or higher for holiday weekends. We were here on a special: buy one night get a night free that was arranged by a KOA agent, but the Sunshine RV Park staff members are still trying to get up to speed on the KOA system. We had hoped to purchase propane here but it was not operational. If we stay here again, it will not be by the pool.

We camped two nights at this quite and clean well situated campground that has level concrete sites. Although the campground is wooded it is not shaded so satellite users will have no reception issues and the wide sites easily handled our four slideouts. Each site’s sewer connection is closer to the rear of the site but we prefer that in order to have the additional space to park are tow car in front near the front door of the RV. This park does not have a dump station because every site has full hookups. The bathrooms and showers were spotless. The campground manager is friendly and helpful. We will definitely return here.

We stayed three nights at this clean and quiet family owned park just off I-35 for genealogy research in the Homewood and Williamsburg area. We could not hear freeway traffic over the hill. The 50 amp pull through gravel sites are level and long enough to include your tow car without having to disconnect it. The bathrooms and showers are spotless and there is one washer and dryer in the office area, which is usually open later in the afternoon until about 8 pm. We stayed here two years ago and plan to return in the near future.

We pulled into this very clean campground without reservations and had plenty of full hook-up gravel sites to pick from. Even though it is self registration, there was a friendly campground host to help us select a site. We stayed here one night to tour the covered bridges of Madison County. All sites are back in.

A very poorly designed KOA campground. The dump station at the entrance can only be accessed if you are driving into the campground but not driving out. This campground is suitable for tents and popup campers but not Class A motorhomes 40 feet or longer. Turns are too sharp for big rigs especially if cars and other vehicles are parked close to the road. There is no drainage so the park roads and sites were full of mud puddles. Cost for electric and water only was $35 per night without a membership discount. While the staff was helpful and friendly, this is the first campground in 22 years of RVing that we won’t return to.

Tree limbs on pull through grass sites make it tight for rigs with slide outs. We had to pull forward into an empty site in the next row where we were finally able to extend all four slides but they still touched the tree limbs. This campground was heavily populated with campers in tents while the pull throughs were almost empty. An inexperienced lone staffer at our check-in made the process excessively long waiting for her backup to arrive to issue a credit for an overcharge.

I was leery about making reservations here until I read the reviews of this campground on this site. We stayed here one night to see Niagara Falls. This campground truly is a hidden treasure for those wanting to visit the falls. Sites are asphalt and large enough for pull-throughs with a tow. No cable but shade trees allow satellite reception. Local HD reception is good.

The driveway entrance from Blue Rock Road is steep uphill and several drag marks are visible. Payment at registration is cash only, no credit/debit cards, no checks. Sites near the water front are for seasonal tenants only, but there is a boat ramp for all. No cable in this “5 star resort”. Local HD channel reception is good as is satellite if you request a site without tree coverage.

Multiple sites had issues with stripped threads at the hose bib connection, but the maintenance staff were very responsive to provide a temporary plastic adapter. All sites are gravel but the ground was saturated from recent rains causing a muddy experience even with the grass. Cable was excellent but cell phone coverage down the hill in the campground was extreme fringe to no coverage. The laundry was clean but on the expensive side for both washers and dryers. We used this campground as a base for 7 days to explore Bar Harbor, Acadia NP, and take a lighthouse cruise tour.

The day we arrived we saw trash bags falling from the overflowing dumpers and no one in the registration office was aware there was an issue. Once we notified the office, the dumpers were emptied that same day. Four dumpers near the dump station were inaccessible due to a large wet muddy road that crossed in front of them that should have been paved. The dump station design was from the 1920s and not maintained or cleaned. Just point your dump hose toward the horizontal grate and hope it all goes down. The bath houses looked so unkempt from the outside with weathered paint that we chose not to go inside. Other than a trooper that drives through once a night, we saw little effort to maintain this wonderful river front and ocean front campground. In addition to the daily camping fee, there is also a one time transaction fee of $9.25. They give away their few 50 sites to campers in tents and/or small trailers that don't need 50 amp service.

This is a heavily wooded campground but well trimmed for big rig access. The roads and sites are dirt with a minimum number of 50 amp sites. Some areas of the interior roads were washed out from recent rains. The campground was somewhat crowded over the weekend at full occupancy but thinned out nicely during the week. The staff is friendly but you may have to ask for a print out of the cable channels when you check in. The restrooms and showers were spotless.

While the trees in this campground are well trimmed, the trees on the connecting road (Thurston St.) are not. So be prepared to be scratched if there’s any on-coming traffic. This is the best staffed campground we’ve ever seen, including “park rangers” to lead first timers to their site. We used our Good Sam card and a First Timer’s coupon from their web site (look under Rates then Promotions) for discounts. We were told at check-in that they no longer pick up your daily trash bag, so it may be a long walk to one of only three dumpers in this very large campground.

Situated adjacent to their parent amusement park, Dutch Wonderland, this campground has mostly gravel sites that are tight back-in or drive-in, and there are only a couple that are pull-through. Sites on the west side of the park are adjacent to the amusement park’s noisy roller coaster complete with screams from the riders; while sites on the north side border the stream but are for tents only. The staff is friendly and generous with their on-site mechanic and shop for minor customer issues. We used this campground for seven days as a base for traveling to other activities (Hershey, Gettysburg, etc.) in the local area.

From this park it’s less than a half hour drive to the United Flight 93 National Memorial crash site. The sites are all gravel, level and spacious. There are too many activities at this park to list them all here but they include putt-putt golf and fishing. There are no discounts for any club memberships but no extra charge for pets. The only thing this park might improve would be reducing the size of their large car pass (5”x7”) that hangs on the mirror, which also doubles as a comment card on the back.

We stayed here two nights to take a full day to explore Shenandoah National Park (NP). We were given directions to our site through a narrow area with low hanging branches and had to find a way to back up and turn around in a very tight area. Although we paid for 50 amp service, their installed circuit breakers would only provide 35 amps (measured) before tripping. Office personnel were not sensitive to our concerns so the breakers weren’t changed until late the second day after additional complaints. The back-in sites are tight with cars/trucks parked on both sides of the road. There is an extra charge for pets per day with no designated pet walking areas. We don’t plan to stay here again.

Sites are gravel but level, clean, and spacious. For the price, it's the best RV park in the area. This was our first visit to this park, and we plan to return and make our reservations well in advance just to make sure we get a site.

This park is close to the I-55 and I-40 interchange, which has been a plus for us after one day of travel. The park has lots of shade trees so if you have a satellite dish on top you may have to request a site not so heavily shaded. This has always been a good one night stay for us and everyone is friendly.
