Many things to do here: biking on the Trace, hiking, birdwatching, watersports on the lake, history! A little further away from conveniences than Fairview but bigger with more to do. Crowded on weekends but during the week it's very quiet.

LA state parks are the best places to camp while in LA. If you are a senior, you can't beat the price. Fairview is well groomed, quiet (with the exception of weekends), beautiful and close to conveniences. I highly recommend staying here.

This is a great little park. I highly recommend it if you are interested in doing things around town. Everything is spotlessly clean and well kept. Wi-Fi works great even though we were some distance from the office. Within walking distance of downtown. Right next door to a grocery store.

This is a well kept reasonably priced park. Everything was clean. Sites were spacious and level. The horse motel is a great place if you are traveling with horses. Everything is safe and well maintained. The owner lady was very helpful with things to do in the area and is more than happy to discuss her donkey rescue with anyone. Easy on and off to I-25. Though it's close to the interstate, the noise is not very bad. We would stay here again if in the area.

I'm not sure why some people gave this park a bad review. It was neat and clean. Yes, there are a lot of monthly RVers here but they all have nice, well maintained rigs. The Wifi signal was great at the bottom of the hill. We could not pick up any TV channels down here but see that other people had their antennae up. Everything was in good repair. It has a great central location. We would camp here again.

Beautiful campground with view of Devils Tower. The only negative remark I could make about this place is the small posts they have in the ground so that people will not drive on the grass. They can't be seen from the driver's seat. We banged up the running board of our truck. We found out another camper got their steps hung up and nearly ripped them off. In their case, the post had to be dug up out of the ground. Beautifully shady spots. Most all are pull throughs.

We can do without hookups so camped in the primitive area. Very few people in this part of the campground. Beautiful grassy areas, great hiking trails, super birding, many boat docks. Great place to enjoy the outdoors and relax.

This was a beautiful park with a lot of outdoor activities. You can backpack, hike, bike, canoe, walk or just sit around and enjoy the view of the lake or the river. We had a great campsite near the bike/walking trail with a view of the lake. We enjoyed this park very much.

We had the best site in the campground: 12. We had a wonderful view of the lake and the islands right from our windows and door. It was the best view we've had from our trailer in a long time. Sites are small but quite a few are large enough for big rigs. The campground was neat but nothing spectacular as far as accommodations. Dump station was not working, but we were able to dump at one of the sites.

This is the place to camp while in the Porcupine Mtns. if you don't mind no hookups. It's very rustic - no hookups at all and pit toilets. The scenery and hiking from this campground is absolutely wonderful. Everything is clean and well kept. Sites are large. Lots of wildlife. We would definitely plan on coming here again.

This was a beautifully kept peaceful campground. The only negatives were sites were a bit small (we didn't want to pay the extra $2 for a pull thruough) and most were unlevel. Other than that - the workers were very friendly and helpful, there weren't many other campers so it was peaceful. We had a beautiful view of the lake. Lots of places to hike, bike and sight-see. Best meal in town is at the Harbor Haus! It ranks in the top 10 of places I've eaten. A very enjoyable stay.

This is a free campground with only 7 sites. First come, first served. Electric hookups but no water or dump. Huge sites with picnic tables. Fantastic place for free!

This was an attractive park with lots of hiking trails. Sites are small, not level but clean. Large rigs can fit but with some careful manuvering. The big attraction for us was the town of Yellow Springs and it is wonderful!

One of the nicest campgrounds we ever stayed in. Camped in the primitive area - no hookups. It is a big grassy area. Very beautiful. Visiting the horse park is easy from here. When camped here you get a discount to the park and free parking. I would recommend camping here even if you don't visit the horse park.

This was a beautiful park with many sites right on the lake. You won't have many problems getting a site if you come during the week but weekends are packed. The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We had trouble fitting in the only spot that was open (we were staying through the weekend) and they gave us an emergency spot that was an easier fit. Because of the campground being on a hill - some sites sit high and can make for getting a large rig in without hitting bottom on the back end. There are plenty of large sites if you can get one that is not reserved.

The first mistake we made was to come here on a holiday weekend. Noise from our neighboring campsites continued on to near midnight. Noise came from power boats on the lake early in the morning. The campground was totally full. We got the last site. Other than that - this would be a nice place to come stay. Sites are very large. Some have utilities, some don't. Some sites are on the lake. Nice swimming area. Sites were fairly clean and maintained. The good thing is you can use your Golden Access card to get camping for half price.

Close to interstate and St. Augustine. Great rate for a night or two. Would probably not stay for an extended stay. Spots were tight but there were many large rigs there. If there on the weekend - the flea market is great. It's huge with everything including the kitchen sink to be bought. Many people living full time. Not very attractive grounds. Staff was friendly.

This was a wonderfully clean and attractive park. The staff was excellent. They were very capable and very friendly. The bathrooms were the cleanest and nicest we have ever seen in our 2 years of full timing. All facilities were excellent. I give it a 9 rating only based on sites being a bit close together but no closer together than any other RV park in the area. I highly recommend this park.

Most sites for traveling RVers are small. Sites were very muddy in the week long rain we had. Staff was very friendly and very laid back. Free Wi-Fi and free cable (only a few channels). Lots of people with year long sites with makeshift covers. Not the most attractive campground but for the $10 night (Passport America), free Wi-Fi (great signal from site), free cable and close to attractions in the area - it can't be beat. Fishing in river on campground is possible without a license.
