We really liked this park. If you get a site along the river, the hookups are set up so you can back in or pull straight in. This allows 5th wheels and motor homes the opportunity to have a great river view. The sites are plenty wide and each has a picnic table. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Restrooms and laundry were very clean. The entrance to the park is a little funky. You have to drive through a short RV sales lot, a trailer park, and then enter the flower lined driveway of Rising River RV Park. We stayed here for 5 nights and used it as a base for seeing Crater Lake, hiking waterfalls in the Umpqua National Forest, and biking the Row River Trail in Cottage Grove. We'd definitely stay here again.

We really liked this park, and as fulltimers we are really particular. The owners and staff are such nice people and very helpful. There are 21 concrete pads with patio and picnic table split between pull thrus and backins. The layout of the park is big rig friendly, and many of the sites are tiered, which gave a feeling of privacy. Space #37 is a backin on the end of the concrete section and it was outstanding. Cable TV and good internet access was a plus. Restrooms/showers are very clean and finally a proper laundry room with 7 washers/8 dryers, all clean and in excellent condition! This park is just a short drive to downtown Branson and we enjoyed returning to the quiet, peaceful park setting after enjoying all the area had to offer. Table Rock Lake State Park is across the street with a bike/walking trail and boat launch facilities. Would have liked to give this park a 10, but there are some weedy sites in the back and a couple of not so great looking long stays. But even with that, this will definitely be our destination park when visiting Branson.

This RV Park is definitely "Big Rig Friendly" and is so beautifully landscaped. The hard gravel packed interior roads and pull-through sites are wide for easy in and out. The restrooms/showers, laundry and exercise rooms are immaculate. Great internet speed and the 56 channel cable TV was a nice bonus. Our discounted rate reflects a 1 week stay, which gave us ample time to visit Mammoth Caves, kayak the Green River, visit the Corvette Museum and explore the Cave Land area. As others have commented, trains run close to the RV park day and night, however, the positive aspects of this park far outweigh the negative of the train noise. We really like this park and will always stay here when visiting this area.

We chose this new park for our 1 week visit to Lexington, KY based on the high ratings from RV Park Reviews, however, this park is not yet a 10. If the owners future plans and improvements are realized, this could be a superior RV resort. There has been a significant investment in providing great facilities such as a sparkling pool, immaculate restroom/showers, new playground and pavilion, and it's a good start to becoming a first class operation. We liked the back-in sites located at the front of the park, as they appear better established with grassy areas in between sites. The narrow, rough asphalt interior roads and gravel sites in the back remain a work in progress. If you are 40+ feet towing a car and looking for an overnight stay, the pull-throughs are not adequate in length and you will need to disconnect your toad to fit. The owners seem very nice and we wish them well with this new venture and look forward to passing this way again in the future to see their progress.

We chose this park for a 1 week stay due to it's proximity to Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, the historic Charlottesville and the Shenandoah National Park. The park staff were extremely friendly and the restrooms/showers and laundry were clean. Because the interior roads and sites are all dirt with gravel, it was difficult to distinguish the roads from the pull thru sites. We saw more than one big rig wander off the beaten path. Perhaps better signage would be helpful. The pool, while in need of TLC, was a welcomed sight because of the high temps & high humidity. If cell phone service and internet connection are important to your everyday functioning, you might want to consider a short stay, as you will be off the grid in this campground.

We don't normally stay at KOA's because they are focused on family activities and we are a retired couple. This park was located off the freeway on our way to Kentucky, so it perfectly fit our needs. It was clean and well laid out, and the staff were very friendly. Restrooms and facilities were immaculate. Must confess, while its proximity to the freeway was convenient, the freeway traffic noise was loud and can be heard from everywhere in the park. Still, this is a great place for an overnight stop or short stay and we would come back again.

We loved this campground! With large back-in concrete sites and patios, 50 amp FHU's, paved interior roads and pristine landscaping, we had a great 2 weeks stay. Because the park is part of the Tom Johnson Service Center, it's not a family campground destination. However, this is the perfect location for visiting the Blue Ridge Parkway, Asheville and Biltmore House. Would have rated this a 10 if the laundry was more than 2 washers and 2 dryers. We had to drive to Black Mountain to find a laundromat. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit the Blue Ridge Mountains.

We stayed here in Concord for 2 weeks to visit with family in Charlotte. While the park has few amenities, it's definitely big rig friendly, with clean restrooms and easy access to several freeways for getting around the city. We've been here before, so knew what to expect. When there are no scheduled races, you can virtually have your pick of sites. Some reviewers didn't like the large gravel surface, but we encountered some severe thunderstorms and the rain quickly soaked into the gravel, rather than puddle outside the coach. We thought that was a plus. This will always be our choice when visiting Charlotte.

We stayed for 2 weeks while visiting Myrtle Beach. It's located on a beautiful man-made lake, with a 1 mile walking path around the lake. All the sites are pull through, other than those along the lake, and all are paved with concrete patios. The restrooms, laundry room and recreation facilities are spotless. The grounds are pristine, and this park truly measures up to the definition of RV Resort. It is very deserving of a 10 rating. This is one of our favorite RV parks.

This park is the perfect location for visiting Charleston. We stayed for a week. Most of the sites are very spacious pull thrus, some with shade, and the grounds are manicured. We had problems with our power pole and, within minutes of our reporting the issue, had immediate resolution. The quick response was impressive considering this was over a holiday weekend. The pool is small, but the weather was so hot it was a welcomed amenity. While the laundry room is very small for the size of the park, there is a laundromat across the street. We would definitely stay here again.

We met friends here and stayed for one week. The park was actually nicer than we had expected and there were plenty of open sites. Our pull thru wasn't near any of the large oak trees, so we didn't have any issues with site access or our slides. It does appear that if the park were full, the sites might feel a bit cramped. The bathroom/shower is in a single room and is gender specific. We saw a man using the ladies room when the gentleman's was obviously occupied. For a park this size and price, this arrangement doesn't seem quite adequate. Laundry room was clean and the washer/dryers worked fine. The best part of this park is it's proximity to downtown Tallahassee and other attractions. We would stay here again, but not for more than a few days.

We truly enjoyed this state park, and we usually don't chose state parks because we like having sewer connection. But this park was recommended by friends and we found our pull thru site to be very spacious. The back in sites also appeared roomy and offered a great deal of privacy. This park is very well laid out and is absolutely beautiful. We found the museum and bell tower interesting and it was lovely to hear the Stephen Foster tunes ringing from the bell tower several times a day. Restrooms and showers were immaculate. If you want a few days of peace and serenity, this is the place.

We decided for our first trip to the Florida Keys to stay in Marathon. This would give us about a 1 hour drive in either direction to visit Key West and Key Largo. We chose Jolly Roger for our 2 week stay because it was priced better than most parks in the area. Our site was a pull thru and was not near trees, so it was easy in and easy out for our big rig. Some interior sites would be a bit more tricky to maneuver. Our one neighbor's sewer hookup was so close it was right next to our patio/picnic table and the other neighbor's awning was a foot from our living room slide and way too close. Water pressure was poor and the electric went out several times. The staff are just as nice as they can be, but despite their helpful attitude, it doesn't change the fact that this is a very old park. To upgrade the restrooms/showers and laundry would take a major cash injection. While it was not the staff's fault, the sewage smell from the rotting seaweed along the seawall was pretty bad. We were glad we didn't pay the big bucks for the gulf view sites where the odor was unbelievably strong. We loved the Keys and will definitely come back, but unless this park undergoes some serious facility improvements, we will pay the extra money and stay somewhere else.

We stayed at this park for a month during peak season, and electric was not included for monthly stays. The sites are brick pavers which give a neat, well-kept, RV resort appearance. Pool, restrooms and showers were very clean, but we were surprised at how few washers/dryers were available in the laundry room for a park this size. Cable TV was good and we didn't have difficulty accessing the internet with our Sprint broadband. This park is the perfect location for enjoying Orlando, Disney Theme Parks and local attractions. We discovered the West Orange Bike Trail (shady and beautiful) that runs through the little town of Winter Garden and liked it so much we rode it several times during our stay. While we didn't like this park's policy of having to pay the entire month's rent as a deposit, but we would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it for visitors to Orlando.

We spent a month at this park on a special introductory offer. We read RV Park Reviews for this campground and they were mostly favorable, so we thought we would give it a try. There are definitely 2 sections, and if you are not fluent in French, you'd best stay in The Palms section. We were assigned a spacious back-in site in The Palms, but could see how even an experienced driver might have issues with sites close to the trees when the park is busy. The French Canadians dominate the park and activities January to March. We attended a dance where the DJ only spoke French and all the music and dances were primarily geared toward the French campers. It was like being in a Foreign country. Since we don't depend on campground planned activities for entertaining ourselves, it wasn't a problem for us, but we could see how this could be a turn off for others. The plus for this park is the staff are friendly and the facilities are adequate, however, would not call this a RV resort. It's very close to Tampa and Tampa beaches. We enjoyed the awesome bike trails throughout the area and the Hillsborough River provided our favorite kayaking trip ever. We would most likely use this park again, but only for a few weeks.

This park is the perfect location for visiting and enjoying the beautiful Destin beaches, and is the best value for money. All sites are backin, however all the paved sites have hookups at the rear so there are no posts to interfere with slides or compartment doors. Restrooms/showers and laundry were very clean. While there are limited amenities, there is Cable TV. We stayed here for a month and truly enjoyed the park and the area. This park will be our choice whenever we are in Destin.

This park is definitely big rig friendly, as most of the sites are pull through and level. The restrooms/showers were very clean and the laundry room had new large capacity washers/dryers. The staff were very helpful and supplied us with maps and visitor information. Proximity to Interstate 95 and St. Augustine was a plus, but thought for the price they should have at least offered Cable TV. We stayed here for 2 weeks and would definitely stay here again.
