One of the nicest RV parks we have stayed in. Beautifully kept grounds. Good WiFi and cable. Dog park is very clean and fenced with lots of room to play. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Every space has a concrete patio with colorful wrought iron table and chairs. Level sites with plenty of room between sites. Price reflects Good Sam Discount plus Louisiana taxes. So, the $34.20 Good Sam per night rate ends up being $38.69 per night due to 13.1% tax rate. We extended our stay to 4 nights and would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here one night. Beautiful park. Lots of trees. Most sites are very long and narrow. The first site I entered was a pull-through but not really. I have a 34 foot trailer and could not pull forward out of the site due to it being too narrow and trees on either side of the exit point. I had to back out and select another site. It was very long and narrow as well. The hookups were at the entry point to the site so they were only convenient for electrical because mine is at the rear. I needed an extension for the water hose and could not reach the sewer with my hose. The sites were not very well thought out as far as utilities. There was a rocky slope on one side of the site and I fell down it more than once as it was tricky footing and there was not enough room to walk on the pad with slides out. There was no cable and the Wi-Fi would not connect. For the price (which included the Good Sam discount) I expected cable and good Wi-Fi. It was fun to see Loretta Lynn's houses, the grist mill, and shops. Would stay here again but come prepared with sewer and water hose extensions. We could pick up a few local TV stations from Nashville.

Stopped through on our way to Mount Airy and had reserved two spaces on the return trip. Nice park. Religious theme and presence. Sites are okay, level, Wi-Fi worked well. Cable channels limited. The main problem with the park is the traffic in October. The office staff said that is just the way it is in October. It took us 30 minutes to go 4 miles to the park. You have to take an alternative route to the Walmart or sit in traffic forever. We did not even go anywhere after crawling in the traffic. The highway is being widened, but did not look like they had been recently working on it. Would have given the park an 8 were it not for the traffic. We canceled our reservations for the return for that reason. It is a very high tourism area. We prefer scenery to tourist destinations. They have a one week cancellation policy and we canceled 5 days early so we were not refunded our deposit. I think that is too stiff of a policy considering they would have no trouble filling the space this time of year. Would not stay here again.

Really beautiful park. Multilevel with 2 small lakes. Sites are gravel (granite), level, plenty of space between sites. Very friendly staff. Dog friendly. Seventy+ cable channels. Wi-Fi too weak at our site. Manager says he is taking care of that presently and hard wiring the system. Very reasonable rate and value. Thirty dollars is the Good Sam rate. We stayed here with friends in a Motorhome side by side. Fire rings available and firewood sold at the office. I would recommend this park to anyone. Would definitely stay here again.

Nice park. Level concrete sites. We stayed in the new section. No trees. Ample space. The main problem with this park is its location. It is under the flight path of Memphis International. It is a Fed Ex hub. Jets flew out non stop from early evening until about 5 AM. We could hardly sleep for the noise. Temperature was in the 50's so no AC fan to cover the noise although we would still hear it even with the AC running. When the jets were quiet for a few seconds then the noise from adjacent I-55 traffic was annoyingly loud. It is a miracle that we got about 2 hours sleep. Again it would be a great place were it somewhere else. Price reflects Good Sam discount.

We stayed here on a Tuesday the week after First Monday Trade days. The camp was pretty empty. I overheard the clerk telling a caller that was trying to make a reservation for First Monday in October that they were booked full and had 43 people on a cancellation list. So better reserve early for First Monday in the fall, which is their busiest time of the year. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We were spaced out from other campers. Large site, almost level, with picnic table. Cable TV was out of service area wide according to the front desk. They have added amenities to the park in the form of two walking trails over a mile and a half long. Would stay here again. As other reviewers have said - be on the lookout for the entrance. It can sneak up on you.

A really nice KOA and very reasonably priced. It's not a large park. Escorted to our site and also when leaving. Cable TV was excellent as was the Wi-Fi. Very friendly owners. Has an enclosed dog park. Quiet. Spaces were plenty wide with some trees. Our only complaint was that they had a large group coming in and we couldn't stay longer.

An excellent RV Park. This is one of the best we have ever stayed in. The park is clean and well maintained. Very pet friendly park with a fenced pet area and a great place to meet your neighbors and their best friends. The staff would pass out dog treats to the dogs whenever they passed us when our dogs were outside. The staff was outstanding and very friendly. Even the other campers seemed more friendly than usual. The staff's attitude is catching. Wi-Fi worked very well. The cable TV had a good selection of channels. They have a free continental breakfast. Park has concrete pads and level sites where we stayed. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

I can also see how the reviews can vary in this park. We were in the back section, escorted to our site. Very friendly front desk and escort. We were put next to one of the residents who works in the area. A really nice young man who works on wind generators in the area. I learned much from him on the subject. The sites being really close together is my only complaint but it was not a problem. We spent a quiet night and never heard any neighborhood dogs referred to in another review. Hook ups were located well. The cable TV excellent. Wi-Fi was one of the best we have encountered on our month long trip. It was always available and was not affected by the number of users. The camp is not that close to shopping but as you exit I-25 to the camp you pass a Flying J plus a Mc Donalds that has parking for RVs. We did not try the Bar B Que dinner. We had a positive experience at this park. The price is great for what you get. I would stay here again.

Fee for the Campground includes $4.00 for 2 pets, $5.00 for cable TV, including the Keep On Adding discount. The small fenced pet park had no human bench to sit on. I was first assigned a site that had a tree blocking the pull through. If I had pulled through it I would have damaged my fifth wheel on leaving. I could see where others had damaged the tree and most likely their rigs. Spaces were level but close. A nice touch was the wrought iron table and 4 chairs with patio and pretty flowers. The 60 channel cable TV was excellent but $5.00 is outrageous. Wi-Fi okay. Laundry facilities okay $1.25 to wash $1.00 to dry. The pancakes were rubbery and my wife 86'd her biscuits and gravy. The park is way over priced. The extra charges still irritate me. Would stay elsewhere next time.

A beautiful Park. We stayed in the lower base camp. Had to level one side of the fifth wheel. Plenty of room between rigs. As stated in the previous review the Wi-Fi needs help. Cable TV was limited. The main advantage to this RV park is that it is about 9 miles from Mt. Rushmore and very convenient for the night lighting and ceremonies at the Monument. You must see this if you have not. After dark you don't have to drive a great distance and chances of encountering wildlife on the road are lessened. Fee quoted was less than during peak season as it just changed as of the day we were there.

I would agree with all of the reviews so far. We arrived at our site to find it occupied and the rig unattended. Had to return to office for reassignment. The next site was blocked by two picnic tables which we had to move. Someone was not paying attention to detail. Rigs are parked side by side in opposite directions. We had okay room between ours and the next rig but others were close. Wi-Fi slow to not available during peak hours. Really good cable TV, strong signal and 66 channels. The site was level. Probably would not stay here again. Price of $46 too high for us. It included the Good Sam Discount.

I agree with the above reviewers on the sites being in the back 40. It is mostly a residential campground with a few sites for overnighters. Those sites are in the back of the park and behind row after row of stored RVs. No view whatsoever. It rained while we were here and there was plenty of mud to go with the gravel. The site was level. Big rig toads have to be parked at 90 degrees to the motorhome. Spaces are wide enough apart. There is grass beside each and a picnic table. Staff was very friendly and helpful. No pet accommodations other than the strip of grass running beside the park. The fee of $43 is Canadian dollars after the Good Sam Discount. There is no cable TV. About 5 stations available on antenna and nothing we wanted to watch. Wi-Fi was good in the off-peak times and slow to not available during "rush hour". The park was okay but the fee way too high for what you get. Some road noise from two intersecting highways nearby and we heard a couple of trains during the night.

A very clean park. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This is one of the nicest parks we have stayed in. Two immaculate laundry rooms with front loaders cost $2.50 to wash and $1.25 to dry. The machines were very up to date. There are two dog parks, one with an agility course. There are no trees at all in this park. The sites were plenty long for big rigs. Our gravel site was level with grass on either side, 50 amps, water, sewer and cable TV with about 20 channels. The Wi-Fi slow until everyone has gone to bed. There was some hiway noise but not too bad or would give it a 10.

Spectacular mountain views and lots of wildlife here. A clean, well kept park, with very accommodating staff. You can wash your rig if you want, at no charge. There are large sites, very wooded, each with fire pit and picnic table. They sell wood at the park for $6 to $8.00. Watch the trees when pulling into your site. It is not very close to Banff Springs (60 km) but we really liked the park. Downside is the booking fee of $8.00 if you make a reservation. We came without reservations and the fee was waived since they had plenty of room. Wi-fi is $8.00 per day and you might have to go to the office to get reception. We did not use the internet for that reason. Cable TV is a joke: you get three or four channels depending on the weather and there is nothing worth watching. Stayed here two nights and enjoyed the beauty of Banff Springs, Lake Louise and took the gondola up the mountain at Banff. Wow!! What a view!!

I totally agree with the previous review. One of the nicest RV parks we have ever stayed in. An immaculate park with wide spaces, totally level, beautiful landscaping and very quiet. Located right outside the West Entrance to Yellowstone Park. Two laundromats were very clean and well maintained. The cleanest restroom I have ever seen. Staff was very helpful. Very good parking for several big rigs when checking in. Hated to leave the park. Oh, there's a terrific pet walking area into the woods with wide trails. Our dogs loved it. Picnic tables at every site that are actually in like new condition. Would definitely stay here again. You get what you pay for at this park.

I agree with the other reviewers: this place is way too expensive for what you get. No cable TV, however Wi-Fi works well. It was quiet. Not that well maintained but we were okay for the night. Camp hosts were very friendly and helpful and our site was level.

Plenty of room here with a fenced pet park. Heard some highway noise and a couple of trains during the night. Drab, no trees but okay for staying a night. Staff was friendly. Restaurant adjacent to the park serves okay food. Cable TV and Wi-Fi available at this price. Would stay overnight again.

We arrived just before closing time. The clerk was friendly and nice. We were in a fifth wheel traveling with companions in a motor home. The hookups for the pull through sites were located in the pad. We have never seen that before. They had been run over so many times the sleeves were broken and there was no cover on the sewer. I had to park to the side of the pad to keep my wheels from resting on the hook ups. Therefore I had to crawl under the fifth wheel on my belly to hook up the water and sewer. The temperature that day had been over 100 and the concrete burned me as I hooked up the utilities. We hurried to get the air conditioners going to cool things off and get the 2 dogs in the fifth wheel. Our traveling companions hooked up their motorhome at the same time. We no sooner got the AC going and both of us lost all electricity. The office was closed so I called the night number. The person answering the phone was trying to be polite but was aggressively very irritated at the same time at the inconvenience of my call. She said she would call maintenance and have them come look at the problem. In the mean time we are sweltering and so are the pets. I waited for maintenance what was about 30 minutes. We had already checked the breakers when we first lost power and they were not working. It dawned on me that there might be a breaker somewhere else that had tripped. Sure enough I spotted a couple of breaker boxes between the two sites and found a 100 amp breaker that was tripped. Voila! We had power again. I was rather proud of the fact that I had solved the problem so easily. I called the manager back and explained what I had done. I was told that it was their equipment and how dare I touch their equipment. I said excuse me but we were hot and had not seen anyone from maintenance. She stated in a very irritated way that she would cancel the maintenance call. She was very rude. I told her I was happy to help out and save everyone time out of their evening. A few minutes later a woman showed up at the door of our fifth wheel and asked my wife if she would have me "step outside". It was like an invitation to come out and fight. I was walking the dogs at the time waiting for the fifth wheel to cool down and was not there. The woman muttered something to my wife about getting her children at school and was interrupted by my call. She left in a huff since I couldn't come out and fight. It is the strangest thing I have ever seen at an RV park. We will definitely not stay there again. They are cash only, no internet, no cable, no service.

I had a brand new RV and this was the first RV Park I ever stayed at. I was to be there for 3 months while working in the area. I had been there two weeks when my RV was burglarized. A police report is on file. It was damaged and items stolen while I was not there. I also had a strange knock at the door one night with a male voice looking for someone. The park is located in an area of town near Lucy Park, a fairly high crime rate area . There is an ambulance depot a few blocks west of there and I was awakened many times during the night with sirens blaring. The management at the park was very uncaring and unconcerned for my losses. They did move me to an area by the office, but I never felt safe there after that. I was told that they had never had a burglary there in 11 years. I do not have a grudge against this park, but I would recommend that you be careful if staying there. I will never stay there again.
