On of the best parks we have seen in over 100k miles of RV travel. Rate reflects average 4 nights at premium site with one free night (as first time in park) and KOA value discount.

But for these two issues, this park would rate a 9. 1. Signage to RV Park from highway (southbound) is very poor. When I commented on this to the check-in lady, her response was "I just work here." 2. Although the roads are paved and pads are concrete, our site was not level and auto jacks had to lift one rear tire in air. Otherwise, fine for a casino RV park. Shuttles to the casino were timely. Buffet ($16) was excellent.

I very rarely rate a park as a 10 but this one qualifies. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. They arranged a city tour and called us in the MH when the van arrived. Rate reflects Passport America for first night and Good Sam discount for second night. Not quite walking distance to Bourbon Street in the Quarter but quite close. We drove our toad and paid a couple of bucks in a metered spot. A first class park!

Somewhat pricey for only 30 amp, no cable, no wireless. Probably justified by proximity to NYC. We tried for Liberty Landing - much closer but they were booked up. Quiet park, big sites. Only problem was that office staff assigned us a site already occupied when we got there. A little tough backing up the 40' motor home on a twisting road to another site that we just took and then reported to office. Also, same staff person was on an apparent personal call when we entered office and was in no rush to get off to register us. Would stay here again if we couldn't get into Liberty Landing but would scout out site with toad before driving motor home to it.

Just a fine park. Rate was for a 30amp pull through site without sewer or cable TV. Reflects 10% off for KOA Value Card. Was $7 higher during weekend. Also got a $35 discount for using points from previous KOA visits. A little tight for big rigs (40') but doable. Staff was terrific!!! Only negative: our site somewhat off level, needed blocks under the rear wheels when using auto jacks, to avoid tires in air. Would definitely return.

Rate reflects weekly rate. Very nice, quiet campground. Level site, good power and cable TV. Very friendly staff. Highlight was a visit by a K9 Game Warden who came with her dog and gave a very informative talk about how to train a search and rescue dog.

Two problems with this campground. 1. Premium site but able to level with auto level. Needed 2" blocks under rear wheels to avoid them being in air with rear jacks fully extended. No excuse for this at $87 a night. 2. We reserved four nights and was told we had four nights at check-in. (Their written poicy on web site is a 4 night minimum for a stay over a weekend in July or August.) I later looked at departure date on parking pass and receipt and found they had as down for only three nights. Maybe I should have checked earlier but staff was not at all cooperative when I asked for one more night and insisted we depart.

Would have rated 8 or better except the pull through site for our 40' motor home was way off level. Needed 4" of blocks under front tires for auto jacks to level without a tire in the air. This just shouldn't be at this price for 4 nights!

Excellent campground. Friendly and helpful staff. Huge sites. New electrical boxes and picnic tables. Site was level. Good location to visit Tanglewood Music Festival. Would stay here again. Rate reflects weekly stay and KOA Value card discount.

Except for narrow roads and narrow transient sites, this is a very nice park. Mainly seasonal but ok area for overnighters. With a 40' motorhome towing, you cannot make the turn to sites hooked-up, so I changed this campground to: not Big Rig access. The site was not level: needed 6-8" blocks under left rear tires to use hydraulic jacks without a tire hanging in the air. Has a good farmers market, flea market nearby. Free shuttle to beach from rec house parking. Too far to walk from our site.

OK for overnight. Sites not level. Cable connection at our site broken. Sewer connection top about 8" off ground which may be a problem in totally emptying holding tanks. Sites and roads fairly narrow. Roads rough. Did not get escort to site and had difficulty finding because seasonable sites are on map provided but sites are not numbered. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Close enough to Erie to do full provisioning.

Very nice and clean park. The train whistle did not bother us at all. Staff friendly - got escort to site. Only negatives: Sites rather narrow for rigs with slides and awnings. But long enough. Water had lots of particles - really jammed up our filter. Would stay here again.

We are traveling in a 40' motorhome towing a mid-sized truck. Asked for and got a "pull thru" but the site so narrow and the entrance from road so tight we had to detach anyway and back in. This is not a "big rig friendly" park but otherwise very nice. Mainly seasonal campers: did not see another motorhome here. I am pretty sure I asked for a 50 amp site but all they have is 30amp. The rate of $20 a day reflects a 50% senior discount Monday-Thursday, so not bad at all.

This is our second time here and it is just a wonderful campground. Friendly staff and huge sites. One of the best things price-wise is that your campground pass gets you FREE parking at each of the four parking lots in Niagara Falls State Park for your entire stay (otherwise $10.00 a day). While no water hookup, at our site we were just one site away from the fresh water station so we got a container of fresh water several times a day and hooked about 100' of hose to fill our water tank at the end of day 3. Two pump out stations are available at the same location near office.

This is a beautiful campground. Huge - 587 sites - mainly seasonal. Were fortunate to get a site for overnight as we needed July 3rd. However, we had a very big site on grass - fairly level. Only negative - we would have really appreciated an escort to our site. We couldn't find it (numbers not well displayed) but a friendly seasonal camper in a golf cart saw us wandering and led us to the site.

Very nice campground. We asked for got a 50 amp pull through but no sewer (Site #174). Long wide site with picnic table. No trouble leveling. However, we got lost trying to find it using the location on my add on GPS points of interest. Then I entered the address shown in Woodall's in the GPS and still couldn't find. A very nice local lady saw our rig stopped and had us follow her car and led us directly here. Because of July 4th holiday, we could stay only the one night. We were willing to move to the "primitive" sites for another night but they have a "no generator" rule and we must have a/c for health reasons so we passed. Friendly office staff.

A delightful park with excellent service. Escorted to site and then the staff guy returned with fresh baked cookies. We ordered from the restaurant on site and had delivered to the motor home for $1.00 fee. Will definitely return.

The good - friendly staff. The bad: Not big rig friendly - impossible turn into pull through site when hooked with tow and hit a tree with awning. The owner was leading us in on a bicycle. Needed heavy duty wrecker to bend tree away from motor home to proceed without further damage. We asked for and paid for a 50 amp site but when hooking up found two 30 amp outlets - no 50! (Site 56). Needed our extension cord to reach next door site which had an unused 50 amp. Needed our sewer hose extension to reach sewer 20" from our connection. Current owner has owned this only one year and acknowledged he has to cut some trees.

An extraordinary campground. Yes, it has gravel roads and sites but everything worked, and the staff are extraordinarily friendly and helpful. They gave excellent driving instructions, asked us to call as we entered and they met us with a golf cart and led us to the site. CASH only: no credit cards. They offer a coupon on their website for $3.00 off for the first night as reflected in the $32 rate. Had a "Father's Day" breakfast the Saturday morning before Fathers Day for $3.00 each with juice, fresh pancakes, sausage and coffee and all the refills you could eat or drink. Upon getting ready to leave, the manager stopped by to be sure everything was OK. We will go out of our way to stay here on our way as we head east in a few weeks.

Rate is with Good Sam discount. Office staff very friendly and helpful and, with one big exception, the park is fine: would otherwise have rated it an 8 or 9. Our rig is a 40'MH towing a mid sized Dodge Dakota and we had a very nice pull through. However, when exiting (I think I went the right way), we encountered a right turn with a big tree on one side and a very high concrete curb on the other. No way we could make it with tow attached. I had to disconnect tow, remove aux brake system in tow and back up several times to make it. I noticed fresh big tire tracks (not mine)in the grass beyond the high curb so others have had the same problem recently. That curb should go: no need for it!

Not bad for overnight. Manager was very friendly and helpful. Met us in a golf cart upon entry, escorted to our site and came back to see if we needed any help. Say hello to his one-eyed cat in the office. One Eye Jack (but female) is very friendly also. Roads are pretty rough. Even got escorted to the exit when leaving (a little confusing). Note: if heading north when leaving, exit by the entrance. Otherwise you will have to make a U-turn.

Third time we stayed here. One of my favorites after 100,000 miles of RVing. Has super friendly and helpful staff. Great views of tugs on the Ole Miss. Has gravel roads but concrete sites. Everything worked. Be sure to call first as it floods a few times a year and is closed. But they have 7-10 days advance warning. Just a wonderful campground.

Rate is Passport America accepted even for a Saturday night. We had placed on an on line reservation with a deposit and the owner gave us a cash refund to bring the rate to the PA rate. Owner extremely friendly and helpful. Site level. Entrance a little unusual (via a gas station) but a well marked sign showing the way in. Site large enough for a pull through but all connections to rear so we had to unhitch anyway for the sewer hose to reach.

Fun place to spend a night. The Ghost Town is included in the camping fee. Asked for and got a $5.00 senior discount. Used a full hookup, pull through (30 amp) around the circle, although it was not long enough to leave the dinghy hitched. Only negative is the leveling: required 4" blocks under the left tires. One weeknight in late September: we only saw 4 other campers.

Except for a major issue with small non-biting ants, this is a great park. Rare to find full hookups and 50 amps in a county park. There are no flies and no cow smell but a major ant problem. Even though we used Ajax and later, Ortho Spray, around tires and other parts of motorhome touching ground, they still invaded the inside of our motorhome. Only the use of about a dozen inside ant-bait disks finally controlled them. Staff was helpful and friendly.

As a previous reviewer observed: sewer connection is at the extreme rear of site. We were here for one night and didn't want to unhitch the toad. Our 20' sewer line was about 10' short to reach. We pulled into a vacant site in the morning and dumped, but one should not have to do this in a well laid out park.

Excellent park. Level sites, good power, water, cable TV, cell coverage, wireless and air card coverage and courteous staff. Great location for visiting Silver Falls State Park with hikes to several waterfalls. Good grocery in town with fresh produce. The rate of $15 was using Passport America which was valid Thursday - Saturday on dates we stayed (9/10-12). Only two issues: Signing on road heading from Silverton does not appear until at turn to left. We missed the turn and had to travel several miles before we could safely turn around in our 40' motor home towing a mid sized pickup. Also, if leaving site and planning on returning after dark, I recommend leaving some distinctive light on your rig. This place is real dark at night and our rig was tough to find.

A very nice park except for issues in leveling rig. We first stopped at the rear of the site and found the slope at the rear such that we were about 5+" off level. Then we pulled forward which reduced the off level at the rear of the coach to about 3+" but could no longer reach the sewer cap with 20' feet of hose.. We were in site T-14. Water and 30 amp power was fine. Marginal cell service, one digital channel not worth watching. Did get dial up speed internet on Verizon air card. Still,, a nice park. Very quiet.

But for the serious problems entering this campground with a big rig and tow, and the related extremely poor attitude by both the man and woman in the office: I would rate this park much higher. The 90-degree turn, as designated by signs to the office, immediately after entering this park, is impossible with a 40' motorhome with tow attached. On the left there was another 40' motorhome in Site #2 backed as close to road as possible. We had to back up with tow attached to get clear of obstruction to the right and then detach our tow. There were plenty of other sites where they could have placed the other 40' motorhome instead of at the park entrance. Or if the 40' motorhome was at the front of its site rather that the rear, there would have been adequate clearance. When discussed with the managers (both man and woman), they argued with me and my traveling partner in another motorhome and displayed total arrogance. We had spent 3 nights here in June. We cut short our stay to one night this time. We will not return.

Pretty nice campground for Alaska. Enjoyed 50amp service, good water pressure, level site, cable TV and great views. Did see an Eagle!!! We are in the "caravan" section: sites a little narrow but long enough for the 40' motor home with mid-sized pickup behind and room to spare. Only complaint: wireless did not work at all. Called office last night and they said they would "reboot". Later learned it was totally down and would be until someone comes from Anchorage. A park this big, advertising free wireless, should have arrangements to keep it working.

Only park on our 48 day caravan tour of Alaska with uneven site. Needed 4" blocks under one set of rear tires and one rear jack to get level. However, the pull through was adequate for our 40' coach and Dodge Dakota on tow bar. No cable TV and we were unable to get digital TV even though close to Anchorage. Only pay wireless at $10/day. Don't know rate because we are on a caravan tour. They did provide a covered site for a group dinner.

Yes, sites are very close but not as bad as other reviews state. We are in a 40' motor home with 2 slides on driver's side alongside another 40' motor home with slides facing ours. Still room to walk between (site #29). Could not open awing on other side. Management friendly and helpful. Mechanic on site. Coin car wash - $3CA for 9 minutes. Wi-Fi works but very slow - free. Good price for diesel fuel on site - $.94CA liter less 3 cent discount. Very quiet even though along Alaska Hwy. About 6 miles from Whitehorse City Center on good roads.

Excellent campground - nearest to Miette Hot Springs. No services, no TV, no satellite radio, no cell phone coverage. Very big sites - fairly level. Road rather narrow for 40' motor home with toad but passable. Only complaint - signage not adequate off main Jasper Park Road and off side road passing campground. We passed the first turnoff and had to travel 5 miles + before able to do a U turn with toad attached. Sign is about 50 feet before turnoff to campgrounds and until you turn a bend, the gate is not obvious.

Stayed here because it is only one that had availability when calls made day before - 3 others were booked and lady said we got last pull through. Not as bad as previous reviews. Yes, dirt roads and gravel pads. But long pull through for our 40' motor home with tow. Pad reasonably level. Good water pressure and 30 amp power. However, many gopher holes around site - complete with gophers poking heads out. Need to be careful not to trip. Check-in reasonably friendly but more emphasis than any other park I have used regarding "rules" Grass and some trees. Some trash around but not terrible.

Excellent experience. Beautiful landscaping well maintained. Staff friendly and courteous. Extensive library of free DVDs with many current titles. Only problem was broken sewer cap when we checked in after hours. Mentioned to office in morning and new cap placed at site within minutes.

Good experience except no signs or other directions to exit park. We stayed only one night and when trying to leave went around the park twice until another camper said we had to leave the way we came in, which required driving our 40' motor home with toad attached against the painted directional arrows. Otherwise would have rated this park 9-10.

A fine park! Plenty of of room, level sites, easy to find, sites well marked. Many sites do not yet have sewers (in future plans) but adequate dump site. Only inconvenience - gate locked at 10PM. Got combo when checked in but it is a combo pad lock and hard to see when re-entering particularly on a cold night. Will definitely stay here gain.

Our first trip in our 5th wheel so a pull-thru and "big" site was important. Got what we needed. Staff very friendly and helpful as were are neighbors. We will definitely return.

We are newbies so a "big" pull thru was important to us. This park was an excellent choice. All expectations were met. Staff friendly and helpful. We stayed four nights. Did laundry once - laundry room clean. Location about 6 miles from Branson highlights. We will definitely return.

Superb campgrounds. We stayed just one night and, and not for fact we needed to be back home for voting, would have stayed longer. We are newbies so a pull-through was important. A phone call to the Park Ranger a few hours before we arrived confirmed they had at least three with electricty, water and sewerage. The Ranger who greeted us, was very friendly and helpful. Site was gravel but level - equipped with grill, fire ring and picnic table. Will definitely return.
