The first time I stayed at this gas station I didn't have slides so the narrow sites were not a problem. With slides, you have to be very careful how you position your rig. For the price it remains a OK spot to overnight if you need hookups. There is a cable TV hookup but it doesn't work. Wi-Fi available in Burger King but it doesn't win any speed awards. Station is in transition. The Burger King and Subway are still there and operating but the gas station and store was just sold in a foreclosure auction. Had to pay in the Burger King, cash only.
This site is typical for fairgrounds. Camping in a field with full hookups. We just overnighted here. Power and water were very good. Excellent TV and satellite reception. Wi-Fi available but it's not close by so a good antenna is needed. Very fast connection once connected. Somewhat tricky to pull into the fairgrounds as there are no signs to direct you. I had the map of the fairgrounds from the web site to help navigate. Pricing is a bit odd, $20 for a 30 amp hookup and $30 for a 50 amp. I thought the differential was a bit high. Self register and pay in a drop box. No envelopes or forms so I had to provide my own. Fair is in early to mid July so avoid it then.
This is an update to my review from last year. We stayed in the new expansion area this summer. This area is designed with big rigs in mind. Plenty of room to maneuver. Terraced views overlooking the bay. Easy walk down to the beach. Sites are reasonably wide with large grass area in front for a picnic table and fire ring. Pads are gravel, roads are paved. Sites have double hookups so motorhomes can pull in forward and trailers can backup in. No shade in this area. No bathrooms or showers so you have to be self contained. Excellent satellite and tv reception. Good Verizon cell signal. Wi-Fi has not been deployed to this area yet but it's possible to pick up a signal from sites to the visitors center office. Excellent water pressure. Dog park about two blocks away. When checking into this section it's best to park in the visitors center lot and walk across the road to the campground office. Otherwise you will have a lot of maneuvering to do to get back over to this site.
We have stayed at the other Opry area campgrounds so decided to give this one a try. Very helpful staff; they were crowded due to construction taking out some sites and a large group. They drove me around to find a site I liked that could get satellite reception. 24 hour laundry was helpful when our dog got sick on a blanket. Roads were being repaved and were a bit rough due to the construction. Wi-Fi worked great.
This park isn't much to look at but makes a great overnight stay. Price is reasonable for full hookups with good Wi-Fi. Getting in is a little tough due to the road condition - potholes and rough pavement. Most transient sites are pull-through. Some long term stays in back-in sites. Owner very friendly. Didn't see him until next morning as we checked in with a waitress at the cafe. Convenient to shopping with grocery and Walmart nearby. No bathrooms or showers so self contained RVs only.
We stopped here to wait out a storm that was passing through. Very friendly staff. Roads and sites were all smooth concrete. Only had to put down my levelers to stop rocking in the wind. No cable but over the air tv reception was very good. Few trees to block satellite. Wi-Fi was the best connection we have seen in two months. Not much around the area but it's an easy drive into Texarkana. Fishing lake on the property and a nice tree covered park area. Great place to walk the dogs.
This campground is only for students attending courses at the folk school. All RV sites are back-in on the outside of a loop. Tent sites are set in the woods on the entry road. School catalog says 34' is maximum but anything up to 36' will fit. Sites are mostly level but a couple could be a challenge. We picked a site that gave us satellite reception but most are too wooded for satellite. No TV reception. Wi-Fi is available in the office but not at the campsites. There is a lit walkway between the campground and the school facilities. Pets are not allowed at the school, including the campground.
I would have given this campground a 9 or 10 if they had water and sewer hookups. A nice county park campground very close to downtown Madison. Very roomy spaces. Trees provide a little shade. Tent area is very shady. Excellent satellite and local TV reception. Wi-Fi was good most of the time. Water fill and dump station easy to access. Bike trail runs right by the campground and it's an easy 5 mile ride to downtown Madison. Free air compressor at the building (95 psi max) for filling bike or car tires. Mosquitoes can be a problem so be sure you have repellant.
Most of the sites have great views of Lake Superior. Sites are reasonably sized with easy access. Some are shady but most are in the open. Wi-Fi connection was good from our site but bandwidth was spotty. Excellent satellite and local TV reception. Easy access to a local trail/park for biking to downtown. Golf course across street. Two blocks down is a car wash with an RV bay. Campground is expanding into a new area with 34 new big rig sites with 50 amp hookups. That area should be complete by Fall 2013.
Campground was established to provide access to the Wild River ATV trail. It has 10 back-in RV sites and 5 tent sites. Sites are level gravel. Self service registration. Some shade, but satellite TV still worked fine. Decent TV reception for Duluth stations. All new hookups that work perfectly. Great place for an overnight or longer while exploring the area. The Jack Links Beef Jerky factory is in town and the local store serves as the outlet. Bought a 10 pound bag of jerky for $40. We stayed here twice, once northbound and again on our way south.
Reservation process for here was a problem. Due to taking courses at North House School we needed about 2 weeks. They only had space for some of the nights and said to call back to check on cancellations. Nothing came up, but we decided to stay for the first part anyway. The site we reserved did not have sewer hookup. When I checked in, I asked if a FHU site was available. She checked and found a waterfront site that was available and we could stay there two weeks. We did have to pay $4 more per night, but it was worth it. Our site had a gorgeous view of the harbor. Once in place our stay was wonderful. Sites are very large and fairly level. Utilities were good. Free Wi-Fi was hard to connect and very slow. A pay connection is available and we opted to pay for it. Much better speed. Campground is in easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. We were there July 4th and the fireworks were right in front of our site. Biking and walking trail goes right by the campground. Pool is indoors and is a community pool. Costs $4 per day. We would definitely stay here again.
As with most campgrounds in this area many of the sites are seasonal. There are only 18 non-seasonal sites and some of those are only suitable for tents or very small campers. Lots of shade as the entire campground is covered in trees. Sites are relatively small and close together. Some of the seasonal sites have more room but the waterfront sites are packed. Satellite is impossible from any site. Cable TV and WiFi are an extra charge. Cable selection is good. WiFi was usually fast with occasional slow downs. Very fishing oriented location. Boat ramp and docks for campers. Boat rentals available. No sewer hookups but he provides a dump it yourself honey wagon - basically a holding tank towed behind a garden tractor.
Not a bad campground but nothing to make it outstanding. It was a convenient place to stay while exploring Door County. Wi-Fi was very good and cable TV was OK. Lack of trees made satellite reception great. Small laundry (3 w/d) open all the time. Sites were either fine gravel or grass. Looks like some work was done to level up the most sloped sites. Not many activities at the campground as we were there early in the season.
We stayed here for a motor home rally. Great venue for such an event with plenty of meeting rooms and space for everyone. Full hookups with Wi-Fi for a decent price. Not many other amenities. Adjacent train tracks can be a noise problem for some. Great location to tour RV factories or visit Amish country.
Campground isn't much to look at as it's just set in some farmland. Sites are either grass or gravel, reasonably wide and level, but a little short. If crowded it might be a little tight for larger rigs. Power was a major problem when we were there. It wasn't crowded but my voltage would drop very low when my AC turned on. On a few occasions it caused my Progressive protection to cut out the power. I had to run my generator in order to cook dinner in the microwave. There was supposed to be cable TV but our site didn't have hookup for it. Didn't matter as there was good over the air TV as well as a clear shot for satellite. Wi-Fi didn't have very good range but I was able to get it to work with a directional antenna. Speed was acceptable. Small playground for kids but not much else there or nearby. We stayed here one night to check it out with thoughts of staying here for Airventure.
Basic place to overnight. Sites very close together. No shade. Looks like lots of long term residents. Wifi had marginal reception in most of park but good speed. Excellent cable tv. Quiet location about 2 miles from I-59. Narrow roads but layout works OK for big rigs.
Typical KOA, lots of activities for kids. Mini golf course, a covered, heated pool, and a playground. Social activities in clubhouse 4 to 5 times a week. Sites are long but slightly narrow. Easy access. Some sites get very wet after a storm. Nice fenced dog area. Staff were friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi covered all sites but was unusable much of the day. Good cable TV but weird channel layout. Some road noise from I-10.
We stayed here about 5 years ago and were amazed at the difference. Lots of upgrades. Nice concrete pads with great landscaping. Fenced dog park. Excellent wi-fi and cable. Good laundry. Only downsides were that the pads weren't level and took a lot to get level. Seems that if you are going to pour concrete pads you should make them near level. Our site had a sewer connection that was uphill.
Rustic and sand pretty well describe this place. All sites and roads are sand with a little bit of grass between them. Lots of pine trees so you cant get a satellite signal at most sites. Most of the buildings and equipment needs maintenance and paint. Office only open until 3pm. Wifi had good coverage but unusable most of the day due to lack of bandwidth.
Not a bad park for the price. Quiet and picturesque setting near the water. Needs some minor maintenance. Price paid was Passport America rate which is good for full stay. Roomy sites. Wifi good except when Mediacom went out city wide.
Nice horse-oriented campground across the road from Goethe State Forest. Very quiet location. Even though there was a horse training event over the weekend while we were there it wasn't crowded or noisy. Sites are very large but all grass. Roads are concrete and roomy enough for the largest rigs. Utilities worked well. Wi-Fi is weak unless you're near the main building and a bit slow at times. OTA TV reception was excellent. No shade but trees have been planted. Good shopping in nearby Dunnellon. We stayed a week to just relax and bicycle the state forest.
Large park, laid out so it doesn't seem so big. Lots of activities available. Mostly a snowbird location with many people here for the season. Some sites grass, others are concrete pads. Wifi had excellent coverage but would slow down at times. Cable TV was OK but some stations were fuzzy. Connections at site are all male connections unlike most places with female connections. Office was out of adapters. 27 hole golf course adjacent to park. Lots of hiking trails that were a little tough for a bicycle. Swimming pool is heated but still a little cool in winter.
Convenient parking to Louisville and Churchill Downs. You are in the parking lot of a large flea market that based in old warehouses. Neighborhood is a little dicey with many strip joints along the road. People working there are very friendly and helpful. Rate was for a 30 amp hookup in the off season. No water available at our site due to freezing temps. Rate for derby week is $650 for the week. They were completing wiring for 50 amp while we were there.
Very nice county park next to a lake. It has a marina with paddle boat and kayak rentals available. Boat ramp for your own boat. All sites are level and good sized - about 15x75 gravel with 20' of grass between sites. No shade due to it being new. Some have been planted but won't have shade for 5 to 10 years. Each site has fire ring with cooking grate and picnic table. A few handicap sites are available with concrete pads. Laundry has 2 washers and dryers. There's a paved path around the lake for hiking/biking. WiFi is ok, a little slow with just a few people here. Verizon and TV reception is excellent. Small store at the ranger station with mostly snack items. Easy access from I-70, about 3 miles from the interstate over new roads.
Nice city park next to the fairgrounds and situated above the Kickapoo river. Mixture of shady and open sites. Avoid last weekend in Sept. since it's the apple festival and they are packed. Site layout is a little confusing. Only a few pull thru sites. All sites are on grass. Dump station is on the exit road.
With nothing going on at the fairgrounds, this was a nice quiet overnight stop. There was only one other motorhome on the other side of the fairgrounds. All parking is on grass. Most sites are fairly level with only a few that might be a problem.
The fairgrounds are a great deal if visiting Dubuque. They are close to the city, less than 10 minutes to downtown. Sites are all back-in to a fence that has all the utilities. It's really just a grass field with hook ups along the fence line. All the sites slope to the back so leveling can be tricky. Electric and sewer take long cords/hoses depending on the site. A number of seasonal sites in use. Only 4 to 6 other sites available when we were here. Water is not freeze proof so it won't be available in cold months. Racing takes place on Sat night in the summer.
Ok site for an overnight stay. About 2 miles off I-80 and easy to get to. A little tight for large rigs. Sites are grass and rutted in some places. Lots of low hanging trees. There was a racing event going on when we arrived making it hard to get in. It wrapped up by 10 so noise wasn't a problem. Payment is a Dropbox.
I usually avoid KOAs because I find them over priced for what you get. This one is over priced for what you don't get. Snippy reception when checking in, had to drag info out about wi-fi and dog area. Sites are all dirt and gravel. Not level. The site we were given had a gully in it that was covered by the picnic table making it hard to pull in. It hasn't rained in months, why not fix the washouts. Wi-Fi was barely usable. Poor reception and slow speeds even late at night. Dog area was a dirt run. The nearby casino allows overnight parking. I think I will stay there if ever through here again.
Nice park for this area. Easy to get to from I-80. Lots of pull through sites. Some sites a little tight for slides. Nice dog walk area. Some noise from nearby UP trains. Wi-Fi signal good but speed was slow. Cable TV was fuzzy.
This is a good deal for a place to explore the wine country. It's not much more than a large gravel parking lot but the site are reasonably roomy with excellent utilities. Wi-Fi was flaky during our stay with lots of dropouts. Very slow in the early evening but great late at night. Laundry was small with 2 washers and dryers. No space for folding or hanging clothes. Park is closed during fair which is mid-July to mid-August. Host's comment was that you didn't want to be there during the fair.
Very picturesque campground with lots of flowers. Difficult entry but OK for getting into spot. Lots of long term campers but they are well kept. Small pond that some sites back up to. A major problem was the 14 speed bumps in a 100 yard loop. Some of the speed bumps were offset so my RV shook side to side when going over. If you never leave the CG it probably isn't an issue but I couldn't stand it. For that reason alone I would never return.
The previous poster is correct about the current status. The HOA is making improvements and fixing up the resort. Nice seaside location with trail to the beach. Best laundry facilities I've found. WiFi was ok, occasionally sluggish. Good selection of channels on cable but no HD. Sites well groomed, level concrete slab. Plenty of room to maneuver big RVs around. Each site in individually owned and most are available for rent when owner is not here. 1/2 the money goes to the owner and 1/2 to the HOA.
Great state park with a variety of trails for hiking, biking, or horseback riding. There's a separate camping loop for horse trailers and a fenced off-leash dog park. The east loop doesn't have much shade. Very friendly and helpful park rangers. Trash/recycling station is a long haul from the campsites.
Lots of shade so 30 amp was enough - we didn't need AC. Dirt sites that are tight. WiFi worked ok but signal was weak in parts of the campground. The game room doesn't have much to recommend it. Near airport but only heard planes when outside and not very often. Quiet and peaceful when walking the dog at night.
Nicely maintained park with helpful staff. No shade and sites are very close together. Convenient to anything around Bellingham. WiFi was flaky at times: couldn't connect even though we were in first row next to office. 24 hour access to laundry. They had a Friday evening cookout on our last night: very well done.
Very quiet park, no activity at night. Wi-Fi is barely usable from a few sites. Don't expect to get it from your RV, you have to go to the golf clubhouse. As mentioned all hookups are at rear of site so long hoses and cables may be required. If you golf it's a great place to visit. If you don't it's still good. We didn't play but the park was a good base to explore the area.
First and foremost, this campground does not have Wi-Fi as advertised. It is available in the restaurant next to the campground but is not usable in the campground even with a high gain antenna. Only real plus to this campground is the creek running behind our site. Very peaceful. Sites are gravel and mostly level. Marginal room between sites. Long walk to bath/showers and trash cans. Easy walk to historic Wallace.
Very nice campground. Helpful staff. Park is impeccably maintained with great flower plantings all over the park. Lots of shade. Laundry was a little small for the number of sites: had to wait until late evening but it's open 24 hours. Excellent WiFi. Cable TV is marginal but satellite worked well even with the trees.
This was a hard campground to rate. While it has various shortcomings, our stay there was extremely pleasant. Location near the main street of Custer was convenient. Easy walk to shopping and restaurants. Sites are very narrow. Our awning almost hit the slideout of our neighbor. Utilities are good but Wi-Fi had issues. Two city parks within walking distance. Mickelson Trail, a rails to trail, runs right in front of park. Owner of park is a genuine character. He made the stay very enjoyable. Their Friday night potluck BBQ is not to be missed. He supplies meat and fresh cut french fries and others bring a dish.
Park is very well maintained. Grass is nicer than my lawn at home. Terraced rows give a nice separation between units. Very wide rows. Pull through sites are two units close together on the driver's side, but lots of room on the grassy area on the curb side. Many sites have good shade but a few don't. Adequate lighting for walking around after dark. Security drives through often. WiFi was a bit slow and hard to get a connection even though we were near an access point. RV wash bay on site as well as gas/diesel. Prices about the same as other stations nearby. Shuttle provided for casino and restaurants nearby. Nice roads and trails for bicycle riding.
Location is convenient to Grand Ole Opry and Opry Mills shopping. Most sites have some shade. Good power and water. Camping World next door. Only a few sites are 50 amp. Nice swimming pool. Good Wi-Fi coverage.
This park isn't much but it's about all you can get in Enid. We we visiting our son who is stationed at Vance AFB. All sites are level - everything in Enid is level. Very dusty with lots of wind. Oil well next to campsite but it only ran for short periods. Wi-Fi was weak and slow. Had to pay to get a higher speed connection. Lots of permanent residents but most were well kept. Right next door to Ashley RV Park - not much difference in the two.
We stayed here a week while attending the John C. Campbell Folk School. Park is impeccably maintained. All roads are paved and each site has a level concrete pad for your RV and picnic area. Modern hookup pedestal with lights, power, cable, and 2 water hookups. Sites were quite large and long enough for big rigs. Wi-Fi was weak but usable in far end of campground. Community building has small laundry and meeting area. They have a pavilion for groups with grills and a fire pit. Riverside back-in sites are extra. Manager very friendly and helpful. If you have children there are no playground facilities or pool. Rate paid was a weekly rate. Only trees were small evergreens on each site.
A friend that's retired military and traveling with us to Newport Naval Station got us the reservation. Sites are all back in and overlook the water but don't have water access. Sites are very roomy. All are gravel parking pads with grass all around. Location is very quiet. It's about a mile drive to any services or stores. This makes a great place to explore the Newport area. Water pressure is very high - use a pressure regulator. Power was good and the 50 amp nice on hot days. If you need a dump station there's one a few miles away for a $10 fee. TV reception is good for the Providence stations.
This campground sits on a small knoll on the tip of the island. Views are great. Most of the sites are taken by seasonal campers. No more than a dozen sites are available for transients. Most transient sites are fairly level. Some of the seasonal sites require extreme blocking to level. Hookups are marginal - water taps require 3 or 4 splitters to handle all the units. Electrical voltage drops in the afternoon when all the AC's cut in. Trash has to be carried to the main gate, about 1/2 mile away. Convenient boat ramp. No shade even for the tent area.
I struggled with a rating for this campground. It has so many good features but the few negatives are a big factor. The area is well maintained and in good condition. Personnel were some of the friendliest and most helpful of any campground I've visited. Sites were level gravel. Space was tight but that can be expected with a campground close in to a major tourist area. Very convenient to Colonial Williamsburg and other area attractions. The campground is sandwiched between a local road and some busy railroad tracks. The train noise didn't bother me but could be a problem for some people. Cable TV was out for the entire Memorial Day weekend. WiFi worked well. Pool is small but clean. 3/4 of the sites are well shaded. Not a lot of room for walking a dog. The worst problem was the water: it had a strong sulfur odor that my filter couldn't remove. We had to buy water and ice for drinking and cooking.
This is a nice county park about 5 miles outside of Dubuque. Sites are all level with a gravel parking pad. Space between site is 15' to 20'. Adjacent county park has large playground and activity fields. Stocked trout stream runs through property. No TV reception. No camp store - nearest stores is about 1.5 miles away. We stayed here in the off-season and water at the site was off but there were a few freeze proof hydrants that were reachable with 50' to 100' of hose. Dump station open year round. Shower house closed in the winter.
This campground is for the use of people attending the school. It provides a convenient location just steps away from the classroom building. All the sites are back-in. Some require backing up a fair distance since the row is a dead-end. Many of the hook-ups are on the wrong side, requiring long cords or hoses. Sites are very shady and only a couple have satellite reception. No other TV reception is available. Road in is very narrow but has almost no traffic. Sites are relatively level. Wi-Fi is available in the classroom building and can be picked up at some of the sites. No laundry facilities are available. Nearest shopping is about 3 miles away. Closest major grocer is 10 miles.
This was a great place to stay while visiting the Franklin area. All back in sites but plenty of room to maneuver. Cable TV, and WiFi worked great. All facilities were kept sparkling clean. Store was short on supplies but it was the end of season. Plenty of places to shop a couple of miles down the road. The terracing of the different sections provides a sense of privacy. There are few trees due to the age of the facility but some have been planted. Laundry was spotless with plenty of room and a TV to watch while doing the laundry.
I only found 2 downsides to this campground - the sites were a little small, and it can get expensive if you shop over at the dealership. We were treated very well by all the employees. Price includes breakfast and lunch each day but it's one menu item only. Excellent security. Has a Flying J and Cracker Barrel next door. Camping World on site. If you're attending a rally there or looking for a new RV, it's a great place to stay.
Yes, this campground is steep. However, it is an excellent location for exploring Asheville and the surrounding area. Sites are terraced and mostly level - some pull-thrus were lower on the ends. I was in a perfectly level back-in site. Personnel were very friendly and helpful. All sites have trees so my XM radio wouldn't work. Some sites are tricky to get into if you have a large RV. Tent sites and camping cabins are in a separate section where you feel like you backpacking in the woods. They are building a new section up the hill that will have great views. Don't plan on it for a year or two. Limited activities for children. Most campers seemed to be older. Excellent Wi-Fi and cable TV.
Nice campground, but tight to move around in. Very well shaded. WiFi is advertised but has spotty uptime - major equipment problems this winter. Didn't work at all during our stay. Lots of long term people staying for the winter. In mid-Jan, campground was 75%+ full.
We used this campground as a base for exploring the area. There's a public beach across the road from the campground. Road wasn't too busy in winter. Rec room just remodeled - very nice with pool table, public computer, and kitchen. Laundry was very clean. Lady at front desk was very helpful and cheerful, made you feel welcome to be there. Designated pet walk areas. WiFi and cable TV worked well.
Great location for visiting the Amana Colonies and Cedar Rapids. Not much in the way of campground activities expect during special events weekends. Sites are good sized but it's one big field so there's no shade. Some trees have been planted but they are very small. Staff was very friendly and helpful with information and suggestions.
This is a great place to overnight while traveling. It's a Shell station with 6 pull through RV lanes. Full hookups and WiFi. Station also includes a Subway and Burger King. Open 24 hours with security cameras. About 1/4 mile off I-39 so noise isn't a problem. Cable TV was crystal clear with plenty of stations. We were in the last slot so WiFi was a little weak but still usable.
Very small campground. Has a number of long term units in place. Owners very helpful and polite. We were in Scottsboro to go to Unclaimed Baggage so this was an ideal location. If you want a comfortable place to stay this is good.
Convenient location to Niagara's wine area. About 2/3 of the campground are full time residents. Some are elegant, others are dumps. Sites are large and well shaded. Friends were in a tent site that was a long walk to the showers. Hookups require long cords and hoses. Electric and water was on one side of site and sewer was on other. Campground borders an orchard that gets noisy in season. Pool was closed after Labor Day. Entry is gated and requires displaying pass to get in.
Campground is a few miles outside Williamsburg so it's a 15 minute drive to any activities. Setting is rural but easy access to interstate. Individual sites are reasonable size but all are close together. Shaded sites in the trees are primitive only. Nice dog run but it's a long walk from sites. Very few children activities. Good base of operations when touring the area. It's not a destination campground. Very friendly staff.
Good variety of sites to meet different preferences. Waterfront sites with boat docks are great for boaters. Employees were very friendly and helpful. Moderate drive (5 miles) to other activities in area. WiFi not available in all areas of campground. Limited phone hookups in building for modem access.
