We really enjoyed this park. It's a good base location to explore Sleeping Bear Dunes. Many of the folks camping there have a boat, and the grassy sites are plenty big for a camper, boat, and vehicle, I didn't see any big rigs, but our 33" motorhome had plenty of room. There's a biking trail that goes right beside the campground. The bathrooms were clean with good showers and good places to put your stuff. The town of Frankfort nearby is a gem! There's a small grill at the campground, but we didn't try it.

This is a very large, but beautifully maintained campground. The front area is shaded, and the sites are lush grass. Mostly pull-throughs. Lots of walking area, and convenient to stores. My only complaint is that there is almost no place to put your things in the showers. I had to use the handicapped one since it had a stool to put stuff on. There was only one hook and not even a soap dish! I think campground owners need to actually Use their showers to see if they are convenient to use! The shower heads were good with plenty of hot water.

This small, quiet campground is a great place for an overnighter, but all sites are back-in and no pull-throughs. We missed the entrance on the first pass since the sign is Very small. Plus Google Maps tried to send us down a side street. Look closely for the street number! The host was very nice and told us how to find a place to eat, and the best way to get back on the highway. This campground is part of a small village of a church assembly grounds. We wanted to walk around and see some of the quaint cottages, but it started pouring rain again just as we were starting out. Sites are grassy and shaded. Power is good...didn't hook up to water. We paid full price since we had let our PA expire.

Great little campground! Well-maintained lovely grounds. It is near the Interstate which means road noise, but easy to get to. Nice bathrooms. Showers could use more hooks. Great hot water. Wi-Fi only in cafe, but strong Verizon signal for MiFi. Great food in cafe in service station. Friendly folks running it. Big grassy area next to the soybean field where my dog could play Frisbee! Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed our four days at this campground. Granted, the spaces are tight and there are no trees, but what can you expect this close to the city? I think this is the closest campground to the city that's acceptable. The sites vary a lot in length and width, but the management knows exactly what will fit into each campsite and assigns them accordingly. All the sites are gravel with a paved road in the middle. At the back of the campground are acres of wetland with walking paths where you can take your dogs. They have doggie bags and a pet waste trash can right at the opening to this which is convenient. The staff in the office has a wealth of information about what to do in the area, and most important, how to get there! We walked the 10 minutes to the ferry to the city, and it was a great way to travel: only $4.75 each way for a senior. Our son rode the bus from the city, and it dropped him off right at the campground. Our site was in the back and we heard no road noise, but I think you might hear some from the front sites. It's an easy drive to Sausalito or Tiburon. There's a great Trader Joe's within walking distance and a Safeway not far away. We tried to visit Muir Woods, but the roads and parking lots were packed with people and cars (on a weekday!) so we turned around and left. If you want to see redwoods, try the Samuel P Taylor State Park instead.

Wow! What a great campground! This is one of our favorites during our 8 weeks on the road. It has beautiful views, big paved sites with lush grass, good utilities, and spotless restrooms. The Wi-Fi worked great. There is a floating restaurant just down the street.

Yes, it's almost all concrete, but that's what you get at a marina. It's better than dirt or sand in your rig. The staff was friendly. We got a site facing the water which was nice, and the utilities were great. We had trouble off and on with the Wi-Fi. Showers cost 25 cents a minute. It was a pleasant place to stay while we drove up and down the coast.

Rate reflects GS discount. I wouldn't call this a "resort", but we enjoyed our 3 days there. There's a lot of variation in the sites. We were a little disappointed after the lush grass in the campground we were in the previous night, since the pads here are dirt with a little grass in between, but after all, it is a working marina and the emphasis is on crabbing and clamming. We had a "bay view" site with which we could see the water at an angle. It was very short and we had to back all the way to the hill (with only a 33' unit), and trim some branches above. All the sites on this row except the "luxury" ones on the bay end are pretty small. There are others across a little bridge where the office is. Utilities worked well. WiFi was a little slow but acceptable. Staff was friendly and bathrooms very clean with good showers. Look for the seals on the sand bar in front!

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed in on our 2-month trip! The grounds are immaculate. It's definitely not the woodsy kind of camping some people want, but we enjoyed the paved pads and the lush grass. They also let us wash our car! There's very little shade since the trees are still small, but the utilities are great, so we just ran the A/C. The bathrooms & laundry ($1.25 each for large capacity) are spotless. WiFi worked great. Nice dog walking areas. There's a walking path to the Evergreen Air Museum, which is a "must see"! (And don't pass up the visit to the cockpit for an extra $25!) We'd stay there again in a heartbeat!

This is a wonderful park! There are some long-terms, but they are beautifully kept. Lots of grass and lovely roses. It's huge and we stayed near the front so didn't see most of it. Since there are different levels, it doesn't feel so big. Good dog-walking places and enclosed dumpsters with recycling. Showers are excellent as is the laundry. It's close to attractions at the Gorge as well as Portland. We didn't hear the trains as some reviewers have complained about, and we slept with windows open.

The price listed was the Good Sam rate. We also paid $17/night for three Passport America nights. So, the price was great, and the campground is in a good location for Rainier and St Helens. First the plusses: The roads are good and the layout is nice. The power and water are great. The negatives: There is only ONE shower for the whole campground....and I mean only ONE shower head! What were they thinking? I guess they assume most people use their own showers, but there were popups there. There is a space marked "future site of clubhouse", so maybe there will be more there? There are only three toilets for the women and one for the men. There is quite a bit of variation in the size of the sites which are all gravel, Some are pretty short and some are really wide. And not all are quite level. There are some trees, but very few of the sites are shaded. We had afternoon sun, and our A/C's hardly stopped. The Wi-Fi often drops and/or stops for a while, so you have to be patient. We could not connect our 7-year-old analog TV to the cable since it will only work with a digital TV. We've never had that happen before.

Calling this a "resort" is a stretch, but it's not bad. I just think we got one of the three worst sites in the campground! They had just leveled these, and the utilities (W&S) are new and work well, but there's mostly plain, newly scraped dirt here, so there's no aesthetic value! At least ours has some gravel, but the next two are ALL dirt, so they are worse. They will be OK if some grass grows here. There are quite a few permanents, and most are kept up nicely, but the folks next to us sit outside and smoke all the time. The campground is quite hilly, and some of the sites are not quite level. Some of the sites are short, but I assume they will tell you if you can fit. The staff is friendly, and the bathrooms are immaculate with great showers. WiFi works fairly well.

This is one of the nicest campgrounds we have stayed in during our month on the road. As others have mentioned, the only drawback is their one-hour WiFi limit, and it's not very good, either. I just used the hot-spot on my iPhone. The grounds are lovely, with thick grass around the asphalt...lots of places to walk dogs, plus paths in the surrounding woods. The washer and dryer are only $1.00 each. Plus, they let you wash your vehicles on site!! I've never had that happen anywhere! Our RV and car were nasty, and we were thrilled to get them clean! The bathrooms are nice, too, and each unisex room is a complete bathroom. The showers are good and hot. We already have them booked for the next two weekends!

Very nice park and just a couple of miles from the Glacier Park entrance. This is the kind of campground we like....wooded with some space between sites. The owner is a sweet older woman who just lost her husband. She had broken her arm and was still baking pies and cinnamon rolls for sale! The place wasn't very full, so we had our area to ourselves. It looked as if some of the sites aren't quite level, so ask first. They know what fits where. Some sites are paved and some are not. Each site has its own garbage can, and there are doggie doo cans and cigarette butt cans all around. The office also houses a B&B, an antique store, souvenirs, and a cafe!

Wonderful little campground! We arrived while the managers were out on errands and followed the instructions for picking a campsite and setting up. When the managers came back, they were extremely helpful and friendly, and gave us information about the surrounding communities. The sites are all nice, thick grass. The whole campground and bathrooms are immaculate. We even got permission to let our dog chase his frisbee in a grassy area!

This is a nice campground with great views located on the top of a hill overlooking Gardiner. It's a little pricey, but everything is around Yellowstone. The owners were very friendly and gave lots of information on touring Yellowstone. When you make your reservation, you will be asked all every little detail, including the breed of your dog and the color of your tow car! There's a lot of variation on the size of the sites, but I think they know whether you can fit in what they have open. We had a "deluxe" site (which is all that was available) so it cost a little more. These sites are a little wider and have cable. The regular ones were pretty close together. They have the nicest bathrooms I have ever seen in a campground with tile showers with granite seats. There was good water pressure. There's a little fenced grassy dog park, and each site has a little bit of irrigated grass. They ask you to keep your dogs off all the grass except in the fenced area, so we had to carry our dogs to get there! It's right in the town of Gardiner, so you can walk to a restaurant or a Subway if you wish. The WiFi was pretty good, but would occasionally stop for a while.

The rate I stated is with tax. The park is very convenient to all the attractions in downtown. The office staff is very friendly and will give you lots of information about what to do in Cody. Some of the sites have grass, but ours was just asphalt, and on this row they are very close together. There is shade in the section nearer the office. The pull-through area only has shade around the edges. The dog walk is just a narrow strip of grass beside the fence, which makes it hard. There is a small fenced dog area where they can be off-lead. Bathrooms are nice with lots of hot water.

We spent two nights here because the campgrounds in Nashville were full due to a music convention. But we were glad we did! This is a lovely spot, and although it's close to the interstate, we weren't bothered by noise. The staff was super friendly and full of information about the area. The campground is surrounded by grassy hills, and we asked permission to let our dog do some frisbee-chasing, so he was happy! The bathrooms are spotless. This is a wonderful place to stay near Nashville. It only takes about 25 minutes to get into town.

This is an OK campground for a stopover on I-95. There are a lot of muddy spots but we managed to miss most of them. We could see quite a few ruts from other campers. I think this has been a problem when we stayed here before. We're on the backside of the campground, so I don't think the highway noise will be a problem. The Wi-Fi is weak and slow, so I resorted to my phone hotspot. The bathrooms are clean.

We got a site at the last minute because of a cancellation. They were booked for the weekend because of the Halloween festival. There was quite a bit of rain, so the campground turned out not to be full, anyway. There are lots of activities for children, and that didn't apply to us. The price is too high for people just wanting a comfortable campsite. There are no gravel or concrete pads and most sites are just grass with some spots that are muddy, or places to pull in between trees. Many sites are not very level. The power is good. The bathrooms are very clean, but there are not many of them for this many campsites. There were five rooms each for men and women on our side of the road. Each room is a full bath with sink, toilet and shower, which works nicely except that if several people are taking a shower, not many toilets are available. The rooms are heated, which is good. We stayed in the section across the road from the office, store, and all the activities. There are some sites on the other side that are on the river. The Internet signal is strong but slow. I expect a lot of people were using it.

We stayed here for three nights while leaf-peeping in the area. They are getting ready for a big Halloween festival over the weekend and are full, so we have to move on. There are lots of activities for children, which we don't have! This would be a great place in the summer since there's tubing right at the campground, and a nice swimming area at the waterfall. Their power and Internet are good. Bathrooms are clean. Lots of tame bunnies running all over!

We used this campground as a stopover while traveling on I-95. It is very attractive with lots of pine trees and large pull-through sites. The staff is friendly and very efficient. It is very close to the highway, so there is some noise from the traffic. The fenced dog park is nice and roomy. The free WiFi worked great.

We stayed here in the peak fall color season, so the area was packed. This campground is clean and quiet. The sites are small, which seems to be the norm for the area. The location is very convenient to most attractions, and the trolley comes through. The Wi-Fi was good, as well as the cable. We had two days of rain during our week here, and since the drainage isn't very good, there were lots of muddy places. We saw the staff adding gravel to one site where the coach door opened onto mud. Some sites are short, but the staff knows their campground well and will ask questions about your unit before you are assigned a site. There isn't much dog-walking space, unless you're parked on the edge of the creek, but there's a steep hill down from most of those sites to the creek. Of course, we pick up after our dogs, but you still hate to have your dog do his business on someone's campsite! The bathhouse was really clean. The laundry looked nice, but we didn't use it.

We always stay at this campground on our trips to New England. It has lots of level pull-throughs, so it’s great for an overnight layover. All the sites that we saw have concrete pads and some shade. They have a nice store with Hershey’s ice cream. They also sell fried chicken and burgers and such. There are fast-food places just across the street with a short walk: Subway, Wendy’s, and Dairy Queen. The Internet is free, and you can pick it up from the sites closest to the store. Otherwise you have to walk to the store and sit on the porch. The showers have roomy stalls and good hot water. The shower heads shoot straight down on you from overhead which is weird, but manageable. There is a nice stream through the campground and if you can use a back-in spot, the stream-front sites have steps down to the water. They rent tubes, and for a fee will take you upstream and let you float back to the campground. Our rate of just under $32 was with the Good Sam discount.

This is a nice campground for a good price. It costs less than most others in the area. Our price included electric, water, sewer and cable in a pull-through. The entrance looks sort of dumpy with ruts in the road and RV storage near the front, but the grounds are grassy and clean. The staff is friendly. There are lots of seasonal campers, but we were there in the middle of the week, and there were very few others there. I expect it gets busy on summer weekends. The Wi-Fi works well, but costs $6 a day. You have to pay for showers, but 25 cents is longer than I usually stay in the shower. I would like the water to be a tiny bit warmer, but there's no temperature control. The restrooms are clean.
