As mentioned by several previous reviewers, this is a good park for visiting Disneyland. The narrow sites were clean and functional; the bathrooms cramped and clean; the staff helpful; and the WiFi weak (only worked at the picnic table next to the office). The ART (Anaheim Regional Transport) system is a good way to travel between the campground and Disneyland. The stated rate is for a double site, which made for a less crowded experience. An added treat is that the campground is a great place to view the nightly Disneyland fireworks display. We will definitely use this facility again when visiting Disneyland.

This is good overnight stop on I-80. As others have mentioned, the sites may be challenging for the longer rigs. The facilities were well maintained and very clean. There are a lot of friendly, quiet semi-permanent occupants. We will definitely use this well run facility again while traveling through Nevada.

This is a good place for an overnight stop or to use as a base to explore some of the natural wonders of the area. The staff is helpful and the facilities in good order. We will definitely use this campground on subsequent travels on I-80.

This is a good place for an overnight stop. Kids seemed to enjoy the playground, but the pool was closed. It appears the management is working to get it open for the summer months, however. The site was level, the traffic noise low, and the bathrooms clean, but dated. Note that there are lots of wonderful tall trees (which may block satellite reception) and no cable TV.

This is a good place for an overnight stop, but will also do nicely for a longer stay to explore the surrounding area. The bathrooms are clean and reasonably modern. The gravel sites can be a challenge, especially in the rain, but things worked well and we enjoyed our stay. We will definitely use this fine facility again.

This is a good place for an overnight stop. It is one of the most accommodating places for very large rigs. The setting in pine trees is charming. On the other hand, the bathrooms while clean, are outdated. The electrical hookup circuit breaker is on a central panel in each row. I suggest you locate the breaker for your site before hooking up.

This is the best place to camp when visiting the tri-state area. The hosts are friendly, the sites spacious and pleasant, the rural setting charming, and the bathrooms spotless and reasonably updated. Be aware that this is farm country and the atmosphere may be "farm like" at times. The back-in sites are much more spacious than the pull-through sites, but choose the pull-through sites if satellite reception is high on your priorities. Finally, be prepared to work around the lack of sewer connections. The hosts have several options and we found this to be a non-issue for us. We will definitely use this charming facility whenever we are in the Dubuque area.

We've stayed at a number of parks in the area, and Pine Mountain is the best by far. The park is new, the sites large and level, the bathrooms/showers spotless, and the ambiance excellent. Additional bonuses include the availability of the indoor/outdoor pool at the new motel across the street and the fact that the area trolley (bus system) stops at the motel. The only suggestion for improvement is the laundry room. Only two washers and two dryers are available.

As mentioned by the others, this is a first-rate facility. The sites were spacious and level, the hosts gracious, the restrooms spotless, and the setting pastoral and serene. This is a great one night stopover or a wonderful home base to explore the surrounding area. We hope to return for a longer stay.

We've rated Fort Wilderness several times before, and it remains one of the premier campsites in our land. We stayed nine days and the rate quoted includes the applicable taxes and fees. The good features include location, cleanliness, transportation, and ambiance. The (minor) complaints include an insufficient number of toilets and shower stalls in the bathhouses (given the fact that everyone in the park is on basically the same schedule) and the lack of free Wi-Fi. An additional irritant during this stay were the iron man events on successive weekends. Disney uses the campground to host these events and it causes paying customers to deal with annoying limitations. Be aware that Disney never reacts to these types of complaints. Therefore, if you want the mouse, you've just got to live with these (admittedly minor) inconveniences. We will continue to return again every year.

This is one of the most difficult reviews I've ever written. This is a cramped, minimal amenity campground in a terrific location. If you want to be right across the street from the gulf beach, want a boating slip, or just want to be close to the nearby condos, this is your place and my rating (based upon only those criteria) would be an eight (8). On the other hand, if you just want a nice campground, you'll find the following issues: sites are very close together, and the bathrooms are clean but there's only one shower and one toilet on both sides. During their busy season, I'm concerned this will be a very crowded, noisy place. On a positive note: the managers are friendly and helpful, the small on-site inter-coastal shoreline is beautiful, and the Wi-Fi is excellent. For the very high cost, I must rate this campground a four (4). I addressed my dilemma by averaging these two ratings for an overall six (6).

As others mentioned, this is a good place for an overnight stop. The check-in was smooth, the site reasonably level, and the hookups functional. The bathrooms are individual small units in a somewhat dated trailer facility. If you get in the first row (as we did), there is truck noise from the adjacent truck stop. This campground is a good choice when traveling through on I-10.

Rocking "A" RV Park is a good place on Highway 287 to spend the night. The check-in was efficient, the site level, and the hookups fine. The bathrooms are clean and updated. We will definitely use this good campground again.

This is our third time at this campground and it remains an excellent facility. We only needed to stay for one night, but the check-in was fast, the site level with everything in order, the staff friendly, and the price reasonable. I, for one, appreciate not having to pay for things I don't need such as 50 amp service and cable TV. The airplane traffic was steady all night long. Since the campground is only about 2000 feet under the extended final approach for Runway 06, the planes are not very high when they come overhead. We've never noticed before the amount of airplane traffic we heard on this visit. There may have been some special event going on. Also, since Gallup lost its scheduled airline service a couple of years ago, perhaps the frequency of chartered flights have increased. In any case, they planes were only a minor nuisance, and won't keep us from enjoying this campground in the future.

We arrived after the office closed, but the instructions were very easy to follow. Since we only stayed the night and left early the next day, all we wanted was a level spot with hookups. All these were available, and we left the next day well rested and ready for a long drive. We plan to return to this campground for a longer stay.

Durango RV Resort is one of the best campgrounds we've ever had the pleasure to use. All facilities and features were in proper order and the park was spotless. Everyone who wants to build an RV park should visit Durango RV Resort to see how it should be done. The personnel were friendly and helpful. We will definitely return for a longer stay.

This is one of the best campgrounds in Northern California. The staff was helpful and friendly. The activities for the kids were varied and fun. The restrooms were very clean. This is a high-energy park with lots of activity. Furthermore, it is located in the center of one of the most vibrant family vacation spots in America. Expect to pay for the best. You'll pay much less in the middle of Kansas, but the Pacific Ocean is much further away. We will return to this first-rate campground many times. One of the many positive features of this park are the many large, beautiful trees which provide shade and atmosphere. Finally, we took the campground's tour of San Francisco. It was wonderful and led by a knowledgeable and skillful tour guide.

A great destination campground. See the web site and other reviews to get a sense of all the things to do. We were just passing through, and it rained the entire time, so we did not get to enjoy the many options available. Nevertheless, we were comfortable in this newer, clean, and efficient location. The individual bathrooms (toilet, basin, & shower) are wonderful.

Consider this campground as a possible destination, especially if you have kids. The owners seemed to work hard to provide large, grassy fields, play areas, activities for kids a bit older, and reasonably clean bathrooms and showers. Furthermore, the kids probably will not mind staying near one the most disgusting lakes (ponds) in the entire state. Kids don't have to worry about cramped sites, no place to park your truck, or worrying about whether your awning will be in the way of the next rig to go by. We were in a 22 foot B+, and still stuck out into the road a bit! They have the slowest WiFi I've ever experienced, but you have to sit outside the camp store to use it. In other words, I do not consider this a good overnight stopping place.

Good place for overnight or several days. The new owners are young, hard-working, and friendly. They are trying to make the facility more family oriented to serve as a destination. This place is immediately off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Watch the signs carefully or you'll get a tour of Fancy Gap. Also, read the "Rates" section of the web site carefully, especially if you have a large party or need 50 amp service. The bathrooms are very clean and reflect the owners' commitment to excellence.

We've used several campgrounds in the Pigeon Forge area. Creekside is the pick of the lot. The bathroom/shower upgrades were a significant improvement. Land is expensive in this area, so don't expect lots of space. If you need a big site and want distance between you and your neighbor, you'll have to stay far out of town. If you want a clean, convenient location as a base to visit the area, Creekside will do nicely.

Mama Gertie's is a terrific campground as long as you remember a few things. First the positives: absolutely spotless bathrooms and showers; separate shower rooms with a full. lockable door; clean, pleasant, sites; free Wifi; spotless laundry room with excellent washers and dryers; convenient reading room with dial-up modem line plus a free phone for making 1-800 calls. The owners are on-site and obviously know what campers need. Now the things to be aware of. The following are inherent features of the facility: access road is narrow and all uphill; the final entry to the campground requires faith (it is on a blind curve); the entire campground is on the side of a hill, with the facilities at the bottom (the owners will give you a lift in their cart, if needed); watch out for the gravel as you walk up & down the hill (it is easy to slip); there is little for small children to do. On this visit (only), the young man at the desk put us in a back-in site when pull-throughs were available. I normally don't mind this, but the site required backing up a fairly steep gravel hill. I haven't made that much gravel fly since I was a teenager (500 years ago). Finally, this campground does not appear to have a late check-in option. The security bar cannot be opened once the office is shut (usually about 8:00pm). If you are running late, you better check. We camped in a B+ (small motorhome).

These comments are for Fort Wilderness as a campground. My family's been going to WDW and Disneyland several times a year for many years. In our opinion, staying on-site turns the Disney experience from a nice place to go into a wonderful resort vacation. At WDW, the availability of the dining plan makes the on-site stay even more pleasant. To get this option, one must stay on-site. Fort Wilderness is a terrific campground. We camped in a B+ (small motorhome), so the tight turns and (sometimes) smaller sites are not an issue. This campground is perhaps the most "B-friendly" one around. They give you what you ask for without bias based upon the size of your rig. The bathrooms and showers are modern and clean. The sites are cleaned thoroughly after the previous camper departs. The few minor things that go wrong are attended to quickly and competently. Here are a few things I'd like to see Walt fix: stop charging for Wifi ($10 a day is outrageous); add more bathrooms; alter the automated sink mechanisms to allow me to adjust the temperature of the water. The high daily fee simply reflects the location. We think it is well worth it.

This is primarily a 55+ winter time snowbird campground. It is a fine park, however, for a stopover. It is safe, quiet, and clean with lots of nice space for a walk. The bathrooms were very clean, but dated. With only one shower, two toilets, and two sinks (one for the guys), it was good that there were only a few overnighters. Definitely use this park while traveling through on I-75.

This is a great place for stopping for the night when passing through the area. The park seemed safe, very clean, somewhat quiet, and the staff friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were outstanding: clean, in good working order, and included new tile and fixtures. Since this state has lots of rain and bugs, the park wisely paves all sites and roads. Again, if you need a good place for the night, this park seems to be a good choice.

We just stopped for the night. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bathrooms were dated, but OK. One (of 3) shower stalls was out of service in the men's room. The view of the mountains at sunset was a nice treat. Furthermore, the location was about a mile off the interstate, which kept the noise to a minimum. Our only problem was an encounter with a fire ants soon after we set up. Having dealt with these little monsters when I lived in the South, I immediately un-hooked and requested another site. The management was most helpful and we relocated to a bug-free site.

An outstanding park! We only stayed for the night as we were traveling through. We would love to return soon to take the train ride and see the canyon again. A new park, everything was new, worked great, and looked terrific. I recommend you check out their web site to see the train trip details. If you have kids, they will love this place (pool, playground, basketball and volleyball courts, etc. As a final note, you'll have to look far and wide to find cleaner, more appealing bathrooms.
