This campground is an excellent overnight stop if you are traveling on I-75. It is convenient and it offers large, level, open, grassy sites in an area surrounded by trees. The manager/owner is efficient and pleasant. They keep an immaculate park and the rates are reasonable. Definitely a find!

This park is way overpriced for what it offers. We camped here overnight on our way to Florida and it is adequate for an overnight stay. It is trashy and has many permanent residents. It is close to the highway and we found that convenient.

We stayed here two years ago and were delighted to return to this wonderful campground. Every site is a winner. There is not a bad site here. Few sites have 50 amp service but it is available. Free Wi-Fi is now available at the gift shop. All sites are spacious and well manicured. There are nice hiking trails, craft shops, a museum and a carillon. Our biggest regret was that we could only stay three days. Will definitely return.

This park is a gem. If you value privacy and the remote feel of a campground you will love this park. It offers hiking and bike trails, windsurfing, rentals, beach access. I rated this a 9 instead of a 10 as we camped here in a 35 foot motorhome and we towed a car. We were in site 82 and it was a large circular site, sandy, well groomed, with picnic bench and fire ring. Surrounded by lush vegetation. The entry was narrow and we could not open our awning. The entry roads into the various loops are over-grown and we could not enter without scratching the top of our motorhome (12 ft 7 inches). We would not camp here again for that reason. The park is well suited to smaller campers, trailers and tents.

The rate reflects monthly discount. Electricity was an additional charge. We stayed here for two months and were delighted with the place. We had some trepidation in staying here as it is clearly a rather remote location. Shopping is limited in the immediate area but there is a Wal-Mart within three miles. We found the distance from a major city to not be an issue though as there were so many activities at the resort that we hated to leave in case we missed something! Pickle ball and golf are the two most popular activities with games scheduled every day for both. Shuffleboard was popular during our second month there. There was a dinner or potluck every week and games each night of the week. This is a very social and friendly RV resort, definitely the friendliest we have ever encountered. The sites are deeded lots but many have yet to be sold and are available for rent. Landscaping is attractive and the sites are fairly spacious with concrete slabs for the vehicles. There was no patio area which meant we tracked in grass regularly. The RV resort could benefit from cable hookups and improved Wi-Fi. It was free but only one person could be logged in at a time. Overall though this was an excellent place to stay and we have made reservations to return next winter.

This was our fourth visit to this park and we were disappointed this time to find it over-crowded and severely congested. It was Columbus Day weekend and was fall break for many children. Many sites had several vehicles, children's bicycles were strewn around campsites and it was difficult to get out of your campsite without driving over someone else's bike, grill or toy. We were in B ring with sewer hookup and those sites are very close to each other. We'd never pick that location again. The campground office is open from 8-4, which is ridiculously early closing. I was told it was because of state cut-backs. Interestingly there were two RVs parked outside the gate all night waiting for the office to open. It made me wonder that the paycheck to keep the office open extra hours could have easily been met by the two RVs who could not get in. There is a very limited store which of course is also not open at the time campers want to stock up on provisions. The playground needs an update but the children still enjoyed it. Campsites are not level. We have had three other sites in this park and have yet to find a site where we did not have to use jacks and still have wheels off the ground. Interior roads are narrow and are bi-directional but I never saw confrontation because of it. Overall a disappointing experience at a park in a beautiful location.

Good Sam rate. Very nice, wide pull-through site. Graveled, a few were concrete. Large clean swimming pool. Good WiFi. Nothing to remark particularly about the campground but it lacked nothing. It is very well taken care of. Office staff were very efficient and friendly. Nice location for I-80 access, about 3 miles from I-39.

I was rather disappointed with this campground. It certainly doesn't rate as highly as Trailer Life and Woodall's believe. Yes, the entrance is manicured and inviting but the sites themselves are narrow and poorly cared for. We were in two different sites and both were far from level and we had wheels off the ground. It was impossible to get level with jacks. The sites were narrow and needed gravel so that you automatically stepped onto grass when you exited the motorhome. The swimming pool was nice during the week when the children were not there. At the weekend the campground was tightly packed with laundry strewn all over. Quite noisy. Good location for interstate and casino access. WiFi was consistently good.

This municipal campground has a mile of shoreline with pebble beaches and rocky overlooks. It's a beautiful location. Many of the FHU sites are close together. We were unable to get a FHU site and found we had more space between sites. The major problem was it was not possible to get level even with jacks and we ended up with our front wheels off the ground. We noticed this was a common problem. You can walk into town from the campground; there is also a municipal swimming pool at the entrance to the campground and it has adult hours. It is Olympic size. Because this is such a large campground, it is very impersonal. They run on full all summer so you need reservations. We would stay here again as the location is great.

This campground is very pleasant but very basic. The grounds are beautifully maintained, rolling lawn and evergreens. The site was gravel and wasn't level. We were unable to extend our awning because of a tree in the way. It's a peaceful place to stay for couples. There are no amenities for children: no pool or playground. It is about 2.5 miles out of town. We were able to get WiFi at the public library. Television was limited to two channels. A bit pricey for what you get.

This "campground" is actually a parking lot at a marina, so no trees in sight. Had a level, black-top site with hookups well placed. Had a very strong WiFi signal; efficient and pleasant office staff. The campground offers no amenities but is well located, less than half a mile from the Canal Park shopping and restaurant district so you can walk across the aerial bridge and access much of the tourist stuff, or walk into downtown Duluth. Getting in and out of sites can be difficult because of congestion.

We used this as an overnight stop. Sites have FHUs and they are correctly placed. Shuttle service to the casino and restaurants. Very efficient check-in. The site was almost level. WiFi is rather slow. It is well-priced for what you get. Inexpensive restaurant food and casino card for $5 gambling per person. There was a major storm while we were here and some sites flooded. This campground gets high ratings from Trailer Life and Woodall's. I have only given it an 8 as the WiFi is weak and there was a noisy party until 11:30 p.m. and security did not break it up, even though they tour the campground regularly. Campers were a mix of seniors and families so a late party seemed inappropriate.

Disappointing choice overall. The campground is good for kids with a nice playground, small pool, and trout pond. Many activities that would appeal to children. The campground is set in a pleasant valley and has many trees. It is close to a major highway which made it rather noisy even at night. Our grassy site is far from level and required four blocks under one tire, and several other blocks under the others to become level. Wi-fi is spotty when the campground is full. Electrical failure, too, but don't know why. Marked this campground down as sites are not level and are not well spaced. Also grassy sites and long entry road is compacted dirt. Adult swim hours at 9 p.m. for a half hour but the water is an unattractive color!

Rate was for electric and water only. When we arrived someone was still in our site so we had to take a site without FHU, as we had requested. The owner was very gracious though and set us up with a water line and we managed quite well. Our site had recently been graded but most did not look level. Can use slides but need to be careful of trees. Basic campground in a very good location. Boise paper plant worth a visit and the Voyageurs National Park tours are lovely. Would definitely stay here again.

Very lovely, parklike setting. You can walk from the campground to the New Salem historic site and theater which shows plays in the summer. The site was level and paved. Well priced. We were able to pick our own 50 amp site. The park was not full even though it was a holiday weekend.

This park has a rural setting in an urban environment. There is a lake and lots of lush vegetation around the campsites. One mile from the Minnesota Zoo, about ten miles from Mall of America. Sites were not totally level and some had hookups in rather strange places, which makes this a 9 and not a 10. Very good WiFi. Efficient and friendly office staff. Would love to have stayed longer.

Large shady sites but not very level. Dirt only sites. Many mosquitoes. Entry roads were narrow and difficult to navigate with 35 foot motorhome. On the plus side: the park is lovely, has many trails, rental boats, bikes. Outstanding visitor centers and gift shops. Standing on the rocks where you can walk across the Mississippi was fun. Many historic buildings. Overall very good state park.

Park was almost full of seasonals and locals. Very crowded, particularly the pool. The sites were grassy and wide, not particularly even but we were able to level. Entry roads were narrow, tight turns for larger rigs. Free WiFi in the office, not at sites. Very friendly and efficient office staff. They were the highlight of the visit.

Good Sam rate. The best campground we have stayed in during this three month trip. Nicely landscaped, wide level gravel site. Good TV and very good Wi-Fi, as promised. Many amenities including the organic garden and mini-golf. Wish we could have stayed longer. Very friendly and efficient owner.

This campground would get a 10 for effort and for staff friendliness. However, it was incredibly busy, noisy and packed out. We could have shaken hands with our neighbors through our respective windows! We were camped between two permanent residents, one of whom had hogged the communal picnic table with his African violets, radio and ashtray. It has a nice pool and fitness center. The Wifi was encrypted and was complicated for some to access. They have a permanent resident who will help you access the Internet for $20! Why make it so complex? Ridiculous. We could not get above 2 bars at the campsite and the service did not work much of the time. I personally hate campgrounds who advertise free wifi and then it doesn't work well. We would not return here.

We stayed at a pull through, full hookup site on the F loop. Sites were level so of course they all puddle-up in the rain. Note: the rangers at the gate tend to give incorrect directional instructions for an RV needing to use hookups once at a site. As far as state parks go this one seems just average. An annual pass will save you $6 a day from the posted rate. The advertised beach and snorkeling is a drive away and the sand there looked dirty and disgusting. We chose this place as it's a good location for visiting Ouray, Silverton and Telluride with a tow car.

We had a nice level site at the end of a row, and it was very quiet - site C12. It was furthest away from the office and pool and close to a dumpster. It suited us well. Wi-fi was excellent - 5 bars, and free. Very efficient friendly staff. Only one negative was that the roads and campsite were of large gravel chips and it wasn't easy to walk. Good location for visiting Colorado National Monument and the town of Grand Junction.

Scenically this place is lovely, set at the bottom of a canyon, next to the rushing Colorado River. It is, however, not a resort! It does offer rafting and tubing trips and bicycle rentals. Playground was very small. Our 50 amp site was up the hill from the river so we were not disturbed so much by the train running alongside the river. Site was not level and most sites were not. Staff was efficient but very impersonal. Who designed the amenities? The electricity was at the back of the site, the water hookup in the middle and the sewer was at the front by the driver's wheel. That was not usable unless you had an extension on your sewer hose. Highly overpriced.

Electric only sites. You have to move to take on water, bit of a nuisance. In addition you have to pay a daily or annual pass to use a Colorado state park. As a state park it doesn't match parks in other states. Bit pricey for what it offers. Some sites, including ours, became waterlogged when it rained.

This is a well-kept campground which would like to be an RV resort. Unfortunately its location is in Golden (high rent district) but its neighbors are low rent, 7-11, biker bar, etc. Easy to get to good shopping and restaurants. Very good and efficient welcome. Excellent rec room and exercise room. Rather noisy so could not sleep with windows open. Also sites are small. Rather high priced, but then it is Golden.

Good value for $. We were escorted to the site which was long and mostly level. Because we were only using 30 amps we were in a more remote spot. Access roads easy to negotiate. Friendly staff. Would stay here again although it is several miles from downtown Abilene. Wi-Fi was $6.95 per day. Did not use.

Passport America rate for 50 amps. Our first experience with Passport America. Well pleased with the campground. The interior roads and sites were a bit muddy as they had had unusually heavy rain. What makes this place so exceptional is the customer service. The whole family works the campground and they are determined to please. We wanted to watch a particular TV program and the owner went out of her way to see we could get the channel well on our TV, loaned us a cable, and got us set up. I don't think I've encountered better service at any campground. We will definitely return.

Very nice campground. Beautifully cared for, well landscaped and manicured. Friendly staff. Site was narrow but adequate. Would be a nice place to stay for a while. Good access to shops and restaurants and the Interstate. Would be a 10 if the sites were just a little bit wider. It was a bit tricky maneuvering out of the site with a toad.

This campground was disappointing. The registration was easy, the campground is well located near the Interstate and restaurants. The entrance has flowers and is appealing. If you are traveling through for one night you are escorted to a large gravel area with a view of a used car lot. The sites are level. I specifically asked for wifi and was told it was at every site. I could not get it for longer than five minutes at a time, with only two bars. I finally gave up and went to the office and sat outside. There was no signal at all. I would not stay here again.

There are a limited number of waterfront sites. Our site, B22, had a view of the river through the trees. It is quiet during the week, and started getting busy for the weekend on Thursday. We ate in the lodge restaurant, which has a nice marina view, and was inexpensive. WiFI is available in the lodge lobby. The park needs some maintenance but is well managed. Probably it's a funding problem. There are lots of songbirds. We also saw deer and a snake. We would camp here again.

Overall we were disappointed with this campground. The check-in was easy. We were given a pull-through site which was not level. The sites are in the process of being renumbered and the map does not correspond to the sites. We were however guided to the site. I had asked to be near the playground and we were not placed there although the campground was almost empty. We did not see level campsites throughout the place. The beach was unattractive and rather dirty, the pool not yet open. I asked about boat rentals but the check-in person didn't know anything about them. The playground is minimal. The campfire rings are in strange places and it was difficult to see which was ours. Wi-Fi is listed on the map but if it exists it is near the playground and nowhere near where anyone was camped. Overall a disappointing experience and we would not return.

This campground has wonderfully spacious sites and it feels more like a state park than a commercial campground. Dirt sites detract from the general appearance. The campground has the amenities including a lovely clubhouse and screened pool, but it lacks in service. General irritants were: we stayed two weeks and one day and they charged me the one day rate instead of prorating it as other campgrounds do; there is no security at night and our neighbors' illegal campfire was ignored, as was the loud music, shouting and bad language until midnight most evenings; shuffleboard equipment was not returned by the same neighbor and the staff didn't bother to get it. Wi-Fi very spotty with many disconnects. Just generally a lack of service. Considering the campground was half empty at a normally peak time I think they could have tried harder. We will not return.

This campground is very well located,only half a mile from US 192 with restaurants and stores close at hand. It gave easy access to Disney World. Entertainment was around the pool but we did not participate in it. We had a grassy site. Neighbors were fairly close but we backed up to a park-like place. We would return here again as the location is excellent.

Wonderfully wide level sites with hookups well placed. We could have parked at least one more RV in our site (#8). We enjoyed the nature trails and the river. Nice to have a campfire at night. Total privacy in our site. Very close to town if you need to shop. We will definitely come back here for a longer stay.

This is a wonderful campground. Previous reviewers have detailed the highlights of the campground - level paved sites, lovely pool, proximity to Wal-Mart and Interstate, friendly staff. We stayed here a week and enjoyed the planned entertainment. The rec hall has a stage and the regulars like to have jam sessions and outside musical entertainers. Worst things about the CG are no cable service and only one channel available through antenna, and the sites are close together in the paved area. We will return for a longer stay if they resolve the cable situation.

This is the Good Sam rate. Rather narrow pull-through sites. Sandy ground around motorhome. We stayed here only for one night. OK for the price, but there is nothing to charm one to stay longer. A good overnight stop on the road south.

Campsite with patio and chiminea is very nice, conveniently located to the pool. Front office staff was very helpful and friendly. This place is over-priced. The pool needs maintenance and cleaning. The water was not clear, had bugs, leaves and a bandaid floating round in it. The stairs into the pool need to be secured and the abandoned toys around the pool picked up. The cover for the filter was missing which is dangerous. We would not stay here again.

This military campground is conveniently located to the Patton Museum at Fort Knox. It is not on base, but is about 3 miles away on US Highway 60, at Camp Carlson. It has level shaded spots with WiFi service at site. There is an immaculate new laundry and community room, which is well stocked with books, videos and games. The office is manned by a friendly, very knowledgeable lady and she was a pleasure to deal with. My only real objection to this place is that it is used by DoD contractors and people moving into the area or here on TDY. It means that the campground is very quiet and doesn't have the feel of regular campgrounds (the vacation type of atmosphere). One tenant in a motorhome has a washer and dryer outside his rig (is this a military base?!). And of course being near a base then you have to put up with the middle of the night gunfire exercises.

This campground was very disappointing. It offers small sites, none of which are level. We camped in a 35 foot motorhome and our site was supposed to accommodate a 40 foot unit. It was very, very tight to turn into and from it. The water and electric hookups were so far from the site (#30) that we had to buy a 30 foot 10 gauge extension cord to be able to hook up. Then we still did not get 30 amps which meant repeated visits to the circuit breaker. The sites are so close together that we felt we were looking into the living room of our neighbors across the street. Limited play activities for children which meant they played ball and rode bikes on the interior roads. Limited walking trails. You are actually separated from the showpiece, the My Old Kentucky Home, by a golf course so you can't walk to it. Nice neighbors improved our time there (they took us to the store to buy the extension cord) but we would not return to this location. We have heard that the campground is to move in two years across the street and it may be a whole lot better then.

This rating is partly based on the nightly rate, which was excellent for 50 amp, full hookup service. Wi-fi available as hotspot at office only. It is turned off overnight. Small pool. Sites are located in a very large field with trees only at edge of field - pretty hot in August. Friendly helpful owner.

This campground has great facilities and a gracious friendly host. It now has Wi-Fi at site and 2 TV channels. Scenically it is very pleasant and of course it has no competition as there really isn't another place to stay in the area, unless you want to use a Wal-Mart parking lot. I gave it an 8 because it has nice facilities. However. The road here is horrible, one-lane wide and no passing zones, and it is about 2 miles long. We did not meet anyone passing us but it was major worrisome. There are private homes on the access road too which could increase traffic. We would not camp here again because of the road, and it is really in the middle of nowhere. If you want to bring children and have a fun, quiet time, then it would be great.

Easy to find and fairly close to Grove City Prime Outlets. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Super well stocked store with camping supplies. Only real complaint was that the sites were narrow and the internal roads were really tight. We did have a staff member guide us to our site.

This is a family campground and we are a senior couple. Nevertheless we really enjoyed it, as the scenery is lovely and the owner delightfully friendly and competent. Enjoyed the pool and the badminton, and watching canoes on the river. Many planned family activities. Pizza on Friday nights made at the campground, and delivered on-site. We particularly liked an E/W site, 35, which is on a hill overlooking the river. In over two months of travel this is the first truly level site we have been given.

We came here because we couldn't get in Ledgeview RV park because we have an indoor cat! We were reluctant to come here as we knew it is expensive, but it was well worth it. The campground is a lovely family park with shuttle service throughout it and to the nearby outlet malls and village. Evening live entertainment (an illusionist) was good and the resort offers two movies, a nature program and a live entertainer every day. Great place to bring a family. Beautiful sites with trees and lots of grass. We would definitely come here again.

Good Sam rate. The campground says that it is equipped to take big rigs, but the access roads are tight. Some flooding of some sites and gullys in the dirt roads. WiFi is free the first day and $2.50 a day thereafter - a waste as it is a weak service. Rather noisy campground. Large beach area on Saco River which was quite pleasant. Loaner TV cable available at the office. Might return here.

This campground is remote, at the top of a steep hill. We camped in a 35 foot motorhome and we were given a choice of two spaces, neither of which were level. We ended up using our leveling jacks and our front tires were still several inches off the ground. The campground is basically for seasonals who were extremely noisy and inconsiderate. Interior roads are dirt and deeply rutted. We did not use the dump station as it was remote and required us to travel on the deeply rutted roads with tight corners. Final disgust with the campground when we damaged our motorhome by sinking in a gully leaving the site. What a horrible place.

We were given a very nice pull-through site on the river, but power and water are on the wrong side. Could not reach waterline at all. High rating because park is very well taken care of, grass manicured, seasonals had tidy sites, and pool was immaculate. Lovely private view of river and free canoes for campers' use. Wi-Fi only available at pool for waterfront campers. Full hookups which are more central have Wi-Fi. Choice of waterfront site with E/W or central full hookup. Cash/check only. We would definitely stay here again.

This campground is a disappointment. It is a Good Sam park but is not particularly well maintained. Many seasonal campers and the pool was absolutely full of children - not all inviting. The shop is untidy and poorly stocked. The check-in person was more interested in her book than checking me in. Our major reason for moving on though after only one night was that we had to share 30 amps with a tenter. Free WiFi - the best thing about the park.

This campground has great potential but it is spoiled by mediocre management. The campground has a lovely park setting and a nice swimming pool. The game room is excellent and is inviting. The store is well stocked. On the downside it took almost an hour to get a site because the poor lady on registration had difficulty managing the campsites and the money. Making change was a stretch for her. We were sent to four campsites before we found one which met our requirement of a level site (our jacks were broken) and 50 amps. The first site had 50 amps but the neighbor used it first so we couldn't have it. The second two sites were not level and only had 30 amps. At the time there was only one other customer to deal with. We were asked why we needed 50 amps. There was an additional charge of $3 per day to run the AC. Seasonal campers have 25 x 25 pink carpets in front of their rigs, sofas, large BBQs, armchairs, twinkly lights and fences. You feel as though you are intruding when you arrive. Noisy at night. We would not camp here again.

Rate reflects weekly rate. Normal rate is $35 per night for E/W site, $40 for full hookup. Very pleasant and helpful office staff who are eager to please. Very efficient service. Lovely large immaculate swimming pool. WiFi service at some of the sites. The campground is on the Island Explorer free shuttle service to Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. The shuttle will pick you up at your motorhome and runs every half hour during the day. This is even better service than we received when we stayed in the Park as then the bus ran on a circular route and it took 15 minutes to get to town but 45 minutes to get home. We would definitely stay here again and in fact have extended our stay beyond what we had originally planned because of the convenience of getting around and overall sightseeing.

We will definitely try to return here.

We were really disappointed with our campsite, A55. We have a 35 foot motorhome with two slides, the maximum length allowable in the park. Although the site was a pull-through it was incredibly difficult to negotiate, evidenced by two prior occupants who damaged the surrounding trees. We ended up camped with trees within six inches of either side of us. I believe that the NP should not advertise these sites as 35 foot. The length is there but not the width. Roads inside the park were paved but narrow with many low overhanging branches. This is a great park for a unit less than 30 feet, or for tent camping. Rate reflects senior Golden Age discount. The park has evening programs and a Sunday morning church service in a nice amphitheater. The Island Explorer buses run frequently into Bar Harbor and around the area, 15 minutes into town, 45 minutes back because of the loop roads. Using a commercial campground in Bar Harbor is actually more practical as the buses run through those campgrounds too.

Nice park with friendly owner. 2 1/2 miles from LL Bean. WiFi available in office. 2 night minimum stay - they are strict about it. Most of their business seems to come from monthly/permanent folks. Would stay here again.

The sites are very close together and we had some difficulty fitting our 35 foot motorhome into a 35 foot site; we could not connect the sewer. Interior roads are fair and narrow. Office staff was pleasant and efficient. The campground is on the river and its primary business is guiding, canoeing, kayaking and tubing. There is a walking path to town, 1 1/2 miles away. Restaurants close by. Good location. WiFi at site. We would definitely come here again.

The park has large grassy sites with gravel pads. Hookup wasn't well placed to use sewer hookup. Of the 91 spaces we were the only overnighters although the campground was not full. Many permanent residents who appear to have lived there for years. That accounts for the low rating. Office staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Very nice large grassy back-in site which was very private. We used the indoor pool. It was immaculate. Camp store is well stocked. Wi-Fi is available only near the office and not at the sites. Interior roads are dirt and very narrow.

This is a lovely campground adjacent to I-88. Large grassy level field in which to camp. Each site is divided by trees. Friendly and cooperative staff. Very pleasant. Would rate higher if it had a pool and wifi. Excellent stopping off spot from the interstate.

This campground is similar in appearance to many state parks, as the sites are buried in a forest. They are located at the bottom of a very steep hill which the staff cheerfully call heart attack hill. No problem except the wifi hot spot is at the top of the hill. I was overall very disgusted with the campground as I had been promised an electric/water site for my 35 foot motorhome. When I checked in I was told that the owner had made a mistake and that we could not fit into the site and we would need a larger site with sewer hookup, for $10 more. Then I was told the credit card machine was not working and so I paid cash. I asked for a receipt and the staff member, who did not want to give me a receipt, scribbled it on a credit card receipt. I felt like I had been conned. To add to that, we could not hook up the sewer because of its location. Most of the campsites are filled with permanent residents. Absolutely would not return again.

Lovely pool, but the campsites were very close. Also, it was not possible to access our sewer hookup at our site. The campfire rings sit on a hill and are definitely not inviting. Overall disappointment with this campground as I was given the impression that I had been given a discount (not true) on the phone and that I could get wifi at the site. I was able to get wifi only by walking to a pavilion. Just felt that I hadn't been dealt with well. Many permanent residents there too. We would definitely not return here.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. This RV resort will be a 10 when it is complete. It lacks a pool and wifi at the moment. It is very upscale. We were escorted to our campsite, as were our visitors when they arrived. Beautiful campsites divided by stone walls. Discount offered for campground guests to Endless Caverns which are part of the complex. Would definitely visit here again.

We could pick our own campsite. Very level and wide back-in spots. Each campsite was very private. Lovely campground with hiking trails, a marina, boats for rent and a white sand beach. Very nice indeed. Would have liked to spend more time here.

Could not be better. Lovely mountain location with pretty meadows and wildflowers. Two small ponds in which you can swim or canoe. Very friendly staff, very helpful. Wonderful place.

Very pleasant staff. Very good location for overnight stay as it is right next to the interstate (rather noisy when standing outside). A pleasant lake walk available. Campfires are available in certain areas. Only downside is the proximity of the adjacent campers and the campground has a large number of permanent (monthly) residents. Would definitely visit here again.

Rate reflects military discount. Very nice campsites, although they required some leveling. Great views. Well located, close to highway.

The park has 60 sites on a 1 mile loop; all sites were full for this weekend - May 17. Many of the sites are narrow and tree lined. Most are back-in and there are only a couple of pull-thru sites. There is a beach and playground for children and a good boat dock area. All sites have nice tables and campfire rings (no firewood available for purchase at the park). The sites are very private and we enjoyed being "buried" in the woods. The nightly rate reflects a Golden Age pass discount of 50%. You can reserve this campground at recreation.gov online.

We stayed here for three nights and found it a very pleasant park. It is located two miles from Oprey Mills Mall and the Grand Ole Oprey. A shuttle is available (fee) to take you to the mall or to downtown locations. We tried it and it was very efficient. During the summer the campground has free entertainment on several evenings a week. Unfortunately our first night was cancelled because of bad weather but we did catch the C&W music the following evening. It is also located adjacent to a dinner/show theater, the Nashville Nightlife. A concierge can help you get the tickets you need. The sites are rather close together but are adequate. Gravel sites. Would definitely use the campground again when visiting Nashville.
