Really nice big pull through sites that were very wide and nicely shaded. Wi-Fi worked ok, and OTA (over the air) TV was fine. Hookup's were in good repair. They do not take credit cards, but would stay again.

I've never been impressed by KOA's but it's the only game in town, so thought I would give them another try. It is a long walking distance to the national park, it's that close, but otherwise it lived up to my expectations for KOA. I think the KOA "difference" is how close you can get your awning to the next campsites slide without actually touching it, this was no exception. First impression, the fire ring was full of beer cans from the last guest, pretty much set the tone for the experience. Lot of late night drinkers, which I would not care about if they were not 3 feet away from my bedroom slide. Basic cable TV that was poor signal strength, poor Wi-Fi and a surprising number of seasonal campers. There looked to be some nicer sites, but in the "horseshoe" it's packed in as tight as you can get. I'd look around again before I would stay here. Think this one finally swore me off KOA's for good.

This park was mostly full of seasonal/full time residents. They majority of the places were well maintained. Decent fishing in they canal, and the park is located close to major highways, Wal-Mart close by. Good cable TV, hookups in good repair, all back in sites but room to maneuver and they are nicely angled for an easy back in. Decent laundry when the last few parks had none, it was a welcome site.

This campground was primarily a seasonal or full time residential park. They do have nice pull through sites, but none of those have full hookups. Once again, found out after the fact that they offer daily honeywagon as needed. Fail on communicating that fact at reservation time. A fairly challenging back in as the sites are at a 90 degree angle, and nicely shaded. Staff was accommodating and helpful. WiFi was available at $2.00 a day, we just used the hotspot on Verizon with no problems. Hookups were in good repair, but water took all 50 foot of hose as it was located on the opposite side of the camper.

This is a really good campground. It's really centrally located to Niagara Falls, Canadian border crossing and to Buffalo. Very well laid out sites, good hookups, very level, all back in sites, but plenty of maneuver room. They had activities for the kids inclusive of the price. Really good WiFi and a nice catch and release pond to fish in. Friendly staff that were really engaged in maintenance while we were here. Would have been a 10 but for the lack of cable (for the price, good OTA though) and they very puzzling single washer and dryer. It's puzzling because they have nearly 100 sites and a pile of cabins. They have obviously put a lot of thought and planning and money into developing the place, that's why it's puzzling that they would have such an underserved laundry facility. We waited with at least 10 other folks in the line to get to the washer and dryer. Hopefully expanding the laundry will be on their list of upgrades. That notwithstanding, I would not hesitate to stay here again when visiting Niagara Falls.

I would echo the previous post about the roads, the turns were very tight and hard to swing wide with my 40 foot rig, glad for my slider hitch. I personally did not find the sites, or at least the one that I had "spacious," but there were laid out so that you had plenty of room between sites. The site we had was just wide enough for the trailer, and we had to level, but only slightly. This was a hard park to rate, on the surface, there was really no problems, they had a nice playground, pool (bring your own chair and it closes at 7pm). I felt they really catered to the seasonal crowd, as that was the majority of their business. All seasonal sites were in very nice condition and got the feeling that it was mostly weekenders as we left on Monday and seems like everyone was gone Sunday night. It was a drive to get to anything and the campground is located fairly remotely from the Finger Lakes. We were anticipating being closer to one of the lakes than we were. The downers for us were the lack of WiFi, the absence of a laundry facility and the hookups were located at the very back of the site. Apart from those, it's a well maintained campground that would benefit from adding some short term pull through sites for travelers.

Nice family run campground with some shaded and some open sites. We had a great pull through that overlooked a nice field so plenty of room for the kids to play. Very well maintained grounds, nice playground for the kids and the pool was nice (too cold for us to swim during our stay). The campground was flooded out last fall so the owners are working hard to get things back to their high standards, so saw them out working a lot. Very friendly and helpful staff. No Wi-Fi but expect that is probably in the works as they recover from their flood. Hook ups were all in good repair, and we enjoyed our stay and the very scenic drive up to Cooperstown. Close to fuel and groceries, would recommend and stay again.

Nice family owned park. Spacious pull through sites--but those sites do NOT have sewer hookups. But never fear, the owners bring the honey wagon around at least every two days or on request if you need it to clean out your tanks. No cable but really good Wi-Fi. Only mis-steps is the check in information. We had to call back up for the Wi-Fi code and didn't know about the honey-wagon till he came around. That information would have been nice to hear or be included with the rules pamphlet at check-in. Located close to the interstate, so it was convenient. Would recommend to stay there.

Rate reflects Passport America price of stay one/get one free. We stayed here only a two nights on our way south from Acadia. Very well kept facility, very friendly and helpful staff. Mostly seasonals here but nicely kept. We had a nice pull through site on a corner that was in good repair and had nice picnic table and fire ring. Would stay again and spend some more time exploring the area.

Would echo the previous post. We stayed at the short term sites. The pull-throughs are at least 100 feet long and in the open, with hookups in the center. Plenty of room between campers so you certainly are not crowded. Wi-Fi was not really fast, but was usable. Would have rated higher but the 2.50 laundry and absent cable. Very close to Acadia and Elsworth groceries/Wal-Mart. Would stay again.

Great Campground! Family owned, but very professionally kept and maintained. Super long pull throughs and very easily accessed back in sites. Facilities were immaculate and hookups all in good repair. There is a trash can at each site with daily pickup. It is easy in and out from Highway 1. Only down side is they don't take credit cards. I had to reserve with a mailed check. Really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend and stay again.

Nice family owned park. Rate reflects off season. The pull-throughs are pretty tight and the side to side are very close as well. Large portion of the park are seasonals. It was not very full when we were there, so none of that mattered, but can imagine it would be difficult to get in and out of when it was full. Very nice and helpful staff, easy to get to the NWR, nice seafood market next door.

Really great place to see Boston from. Hookups all in very good repair, 46 of the sites are full hookups. Laundry and Propane on site. Well maintained grounds, strong Verizon hotspot reception and good television reception. Ten minutes from Minuteman National Park, and very convenient to I-95 (about 5 minutes) It is on a very busy airfield with a good amount of jet noise (Gulfstreams/Learjets). It didn't bother us, but just be aware of it. The approach is through a very residential area, but look for the FamCamp signs and the road dead-ends into the FamCamp. It is set outside the main base, so you do not have to actually go on the base to get to the FamCamp. PX/Commissary 10 minutes away. They do not take reservations, but pride themselves in never turning anyone away. No better deal than this in the Boston area, would stay again.

Very nice large sites, pretty shaded but not hard to get around the trees. You have to negotiate some town traffic to get into the park, but once you cross past the train station, it's very easy to get around. Verizon hotspot worked well. A gem of a park in the sense that you can enjoy the trails along the Hudson, or get on the train and be in NYC in under an hour. I would highly recommend it as a destination to visit NYC, it couldn't have been easier to get on the train and get to Grand Central. Very nice staff and a well maintained park.

Great place to enjoy Amish country. Water hookups were located on the other side of the camper, but not an impossible run with a regular hose. Nice paved pull-throughs as well as some gravel pull-throughs, majority are back in, but have plenty of maneuver room. Nice staff and centrally located. Yes, you will smell the "country", but that's why we came. I'd stay again.

Nice stay here, echo what most of the previous reviewers noted in the hills/tight turns. Nothing that was impossible or even that problematic, just be prepared. Decent price for a KOA and convenient to I-81. Sewer hookups were elevated about 14 inches above the ground that made that less than optimal, but again, not a show stopper. Friendly and helpful staff, would stay again.

This park (at least this new section) is brand new onboard Cheatham Annex of Yorktown Naval Weapons Station. It's still undergoing some minor issues as it's being set up (still waiting for dumpsters and the laundry was not working), but it has paved roads with pretty long concrete pads, much more big rig friendly than the older part of this park. It would have been nice if they would have engineered it to have pull-through sites, but there is plenty of room to maneuver. Being brand new, all the hookups were in good working order. Fire rings/grills and big nice picnic tables at every site. Did not see anyone from MWR coming around but base police drove through every couple hours. Gave it a 7 for a couple reasons. The check-in requires you to drive to the very end of the base and kind of wind around, only to go back to the front of the base where the park is. As they assign you a site with your reservation, think they should let you set up and then drive down to the office without your rig. There is absolutely NO signage on B Street until you get to the very end and you see the park, but it gives you the impression of a road you may not be able to turn around in once you get back there. Signs at B Street would be nice-there are very good signs once you get to the park though. The other reason is the Wi-Fi. There is none, and even our Verizon hotspot could barely get the mail. Our neighbor had AT&T and had no signal on hotspot or cell. I suspect that because it's located in a previously unpopulated corner of the base, no one ever worried about coverage back there. Something that needs to be addressed, either provide Wi-Fi or address the cell coverage. Sites 43 and above are situated on a small rise, and are probably the most unlevel of the park both side to side and front to back. It doesn't appear that level was a priority when they poured those slabs. However, even with all that, and some of that will work itself out, it's still the best deal you will get at Williamsburg. It's 100 yards from the front gate to Colonial Parkway and a straight shot to Jamestown, Yorktown and Colonial Williamsburg. The base laundromat is located with a small exchange and they have diesel on base. There is a large Target and department stores within 10 minutes of the base. Would happily stay again.

Overnight stop but really very nice park. It is obviously well managed. Short drive from the interstate, nice long level gravel pull throughs with double sewer hookups (nice for those of us with 2 tanks) Very friendly staff, escorted us to the site, and even had a Sunday paper and snack bag on our arrival. Blazing WI-Fi included. There is a nice modern, laundry, and great cable. Highly recommend. I would stay again.

Rate reflects PPA rate. Great family owned campground that has been lovingly reconditioned over the past few years. Stayed here while visiting Mammoth Cave, only a few miles down the road. Quiet country setting, propane on site, great Wi-Fi included, and a very well stocked catch and release pond. Pretty level gravel sites, hookups all in good shape, wonderful friendly owners that went out of their way to act as tour guide with awesome tips when we made reservations. Would have happily stayed here a week. Would have given it a 10 except they don't have on site laundry, but suspect that will be coming along with the rest of their upgrades. Will stay again!

Nice little family owned campground. We stayed here to visit Fort Donelson. Turns are a little tight for our 38 foot 5th wheel, but not a problem. It was not crowded while we were there so we were parked longwise in a row of back in spots-and it worked just perfectly. They have a couple pull throughs so they can handle bigger rigs. It may be easier to enter the exit side with anything over 45 feet. Very friendly staff and the hookups were in pretty decent shape. Used PPA and got 50% off the first night. We would stay again.

Stayed here as an overnight twice this month, and found it to be a great deal for this purpose. Although it's a little bit out of the city, it would be a good place to set up to see Memphis. Our GPS took us to the front of the AG Center, rather than to the back where the RV park is, not impossible, but you have to maneuver speed bumps and parking lots. Using the Moore Road entrance off 177 or Walnut Grove Road takes you directly to the park. Staff was friendly and helpful, we had reservations so no problem getting full hookups. Farmers market is right next to the park, and catfish farm/catch pond just down the road. No frills place but convenient and safe. Would stay again.

It simply gets no better than this campground in the military campground realm. 60+ cable TV channels, blazing free Wi-Fi, but who needs that when you can hear the waves on the beach from your camper. Sites are all back-in, fairly level with plenty of room to maneuver, and the front sites all come with covered picnic area and table. Full hookups and they take (and I recommend it) reservations where a lot of Military Campgrounds don't. They even sent us a letter informing us that the office had moved to temporary location during construction so we would go to the right check-in location. Commissary and exchange are on the main base, but there are c-stores not too far away-keep in mind this is Camp Lejeune and it's a huge base in terms of square miles-the majority of it is wilderness training areas without facilities. Great place to spend some time, will definitely stay again.

Stayed here as an overnight, easy off and back on I-40. Very nice country setting, had a nice long pull through that we didn't have to un-hitch to get into (40' 5th wheel) and still had room on either end. Wi-Fi was not very good, but had 4G on the Verizon Hotspot, and didn't have cable-neither of these are huge detractors for us. Staff was really personable and escorted us into our level site and ensured we were happy with it before he left. Would certainly stay again.

Immaculately maintained park, very helpful and friendly owners and staff. It's a bit of a drive to Gatlinburg, but this park's focus is the GSMNP, and they encourage you to take advantage of great hikes you can get on from the campground. Close to Greenbrier and Cosby (read far from the maddening crowds) areas of the park with trail heads and excellent trout fishing located there. Very nice concrete pull through pads, and plenty of maneuver room for the back in spots as well. Drove through a couple of the nearby campgrounds and didn't think they were nearly as nice and well maintained. I would give this one a 10 if they improved their laundry, it was all in good repair, and the facility was nice, but there were only 2 washers and dryers-think it would really be a problem come summer time. Highly recommend and will stay again.

What a great park. In addition to being a really nice campground (good sized sites, all separated with a small patch of woods) there are a couple of water parks, and a 50 foot belay climbing wall. You can rent gear including shoes. There was so much to do just at the park that we could have just stayed there and missed the historic city. It took about 20 minutes to drive to the Ft Sumter visitors center which is right down town. Getting a F250 around the streets can prove to be a little daunting, but the campground is really a gem even at this price. Great place as a base to see Charleston or just relax. Superb staff all round as well. Would stay again.

This is a decent Famcamp with some exceptions. It has no bathroom/shower facilities nor does it have a laundry. The sites are dirt/gravel and relatively level. MWR needs to spend some money to upgrade it that part, but they have very nice new hookups with double water spigots and 50/30 and sewer at every site. It's heavily wooded, with 50% of the sites pull through and the others are back in. It's not really regulated as to who gets what, but did see a small TT move out of a pull through to accommodate a large fiver that was not going to be able to back in due to the trees, so I think folks take care of each other as you would expect. There are no signs that indicate the turn to the Famcamp, but you can see if from the Rio gate. You will need to have a valid DOD sticker on your TV or MH/TOAD to use that gate, otherwise a temporary pass can be issued at Montgomery Gate. Their is no host, and you need to pay at the MWR office about 2 miles away. The staff there were really nice and helpful, and we got a discount off the normal 25 to 18 with our America the Beautiful pass. So for $18, it's a great deal to see Savannah. I highly recommend reservations, the slots were all full when we arrived. They do enforce the 14 day max stay, so that makes it nice for everyone, especially with only 16 sites. It's a work in progress, but I would stay again.

This is a big resort park, that at least during our stay was primarily a destination for snowbirds, and it's set up well for that purpose. They take Passport but only from April till October. We stayed on one of the majority grass sites. I think they could pay more attention to the fire ant problem at these sites, ours was not the only one that had a couple mounds. Facilities were nicely kept up, pools, community rooms, mini-golf course. Couple beefs with the service kind of things. They offer-not include Tengo Wi-Fi at 5 bucks a day, I think that's pretty lousy at "resort" prices (and they charge you the local "resort" fee for whatever that is) and the laundry takes a smart card rather than coins. They only place to re-charge your card is up at the office...so after you trek your laundry down, find out you need a card, walk back to the office to get a card, then back to your camper to get cash-because you can only charge the card up in increments of $5-then back to the office, then back to the laundry. Would it be so hard to put one of the card chargers IN THE LAUNDRY ROOM! Of for that matter let you know at check-in that internet was extra and you needed a card for the laundry. The gentleman at the front desk was rather indignant that we were not aware of those things 2 days into our stay, and was surprised we were not given that information at check-in, which was ironic as he was the one that checked us in. No reason that this could not have been part of our check-in packet. Apart from that, staff were friendly and helpful. It was convenient to the parks, there is a Camping World a mile up the road as well. Hookups were all in good repair and cable was very good. Would consider staying again, but would consider looking around as well. Better communication at checking would have brought their numbers up in my assessment.

Not much more to add that the previous posters have not said, other than their assessment is right in line with mine. Great park, just nothing really nearby. Clewiston is the nearest decent grocery store (Wal-Mart). Super nice staff, they had our check-in packet waiting at the gate. All back in sites but plenty of maneuver room, great Wi-Fi and more cable channels than you usually get at a "resort" You will not stay in Florida this cheap-this nice anywhere else.

Price is for standard site with 30 amp with GS discount. Great campground close to the Everglades, Biscayne, not too far from Big Cypress and a 3 hour ride to Key West. Loved the rural setting of the place, we expected to have to deal with Miami city, but avoided that completely. Nice pool and spa, everything is in good repair. Great service from staff if we asked for anything. Little pricey, but considering the location and time of year, understandable. Didn't see any MH's having issues with the part of the park we were in, as earlier reviews noted, plenty of trees to give you shade and but spread out enough not be a problem with maneuvering. Would recommend this place as a base to see the National Parks from. Would have given them a 10 if we could put all our devices on the Wi-Fi, but it's limited to one device per site. Would stay again.

Stayed here for a few days to break up the trip to Miami. The park is easy to find and the hosts were very helpful and friendly. It's tight-not impossible, but tight, to get into the pull throughs that are conveniently located in the front of the park. The majority of the park are permanent residents/snowbirds who are all welcoming and friendly towards us short stay folk, and the park is a typical setup for those residents with activities and "community" functions-all of which we were invited to. Hookups all in good repair, great free Wi-Fi and basic cable included. While it was marked not family friendly, I would dispute that-so many of the parks in Florida are 55+, and would not want this one characterized as that, the kids were welcome in the pool and biked around the park. Would stay here again.

After staying at a Carefree Park in Carrabelle, this was a total letdown. I've waited till the end of our stay in hopes of being as objective as possible, but things just are as they are. If you are looking for a place to park for months at a time, with the snowbirds, do check it out. At least 50% of the campers are permanent to the point of having decks and roofs on them, several have HVAC/heat pumps! The short term sites (which we were after) are interspersed in the midst of the settlement (rather than placed close to the front or at least more accessible) down very narrow, winding, sharp turn roads. Once in your grass/mud/sand pad between the trees, you can hope your slides don't hit the neighbors. I cannot get my awning fully extended on one side and the rankness of my chain smoking neighbors camper gags us out every time they open the door up to change out their oxygen tanks (no I'm not making that up, standing by for the midnight explosion). My slide is 3 feet from their awning, its way too close. I would check out the other RV parks in the area before I would stay here, there are other parks, just not reviewed on this site. The wildlife park is great, but no need to stay this close to it. They really need to create some short term pull through sites. Only shining moment is the PPA rate we were given. We won't be back, and I really will question the Carefree brand in the future.

Great sites on the water, nice beach and facilities. Would have given it a 10 if they took reservations. We called ahead and were told there was plenty of room, reality was there were 2 sites with water and electric only, and they were in the Anchor Cove. It's lovely shaded and wooded area, but can be challenging to get in and out of in a bigger rig. Nice heads/showers so not the end of the world I just hate to hook up, dump and back in again. We got on the wait list for full hookups, and within a couple days we were over in Battleship Row. Good news is they are building an additional 24 pads with full hookups, so that should free that up some. Super friendly and helpful staff while we were there, certainly would stay again.

Nice stop along the coast, we were just looking for a place to break up the drive south, and glad we stayed a couple days. Easy in and out off 98.

Very friendly staff, nice long concrete level pads with hookups in excellent condition. Would stay again.

Decent park just off the interstate. Could use a bigger sign at the turn in (we missed it and had to turn around), and it's a little winding to get back to the campground-not that big of a deal, just be aware of it. No traffic in the winter, but I could see it being an issue needing both lanes to make the curves in the summer with a water park on the same road. Super friendly staff, nice facility, decent hook ups on gravel sites that were reasonably level and long. Wally is about 10 minutes away. Would stay again.

Seems like there is not much to pick from- at least from reading the reviews-(full hookups anyhow, the COE's are all nice, just no sewer), in the Atlanta area, so stayed further south than we wanted to. Decent campground,a little tight for our 38 foot fifth wheel but not a show stopper, friendly staff, propane on site. Hookups could use some attention, but they were all functional. No complaints, would stay again.

Our second stay at this campground, and it's still just as great as before. Super friendly staff that will go out of their way to accommodate your needs. Great modern hookups (I love the two sewer hookups on the pull through sites for my double tanked rig!), nice laundry and a beautiful setting even in the winter. It's a little steep to get down into the hollow but its not a problem, just be aware of it. Right off the interstate and it's 15 minutes to downtown Hickory. Will be back!

It's really the only game in town in Vicksburg, but that's not a bad thing. The park is really well maintained, hookups are in good shape. Pads are paved/concrete and reasonably level dependent on your site. It's easy off and on I-20. Easy to visit the park or the downtown. Free shuttle to the casino. Good Sam discount on a good price already and I'll stay again.

As with the last poster, it's a bit pricey, but it's short walk to Graceland, that is also a bit pricey. But, take advantage of the free shuttle down to Sun Studios and Beale Street, the pink caddy limo up to Marlows BBQ, it all evens out. Friendly staff, propane on site, diesel just up the road, great for a couple days to see Memphis. Don't miss the Civil Rights Museum at the Loraine Motel, again short walk or trolley ride from Beale.

Really friendly and helpful staff, decent pull through sites. Decent being pretty level gravel. Ours was on it's way to being washed out a bit due to the rains. They will happily honor PPA, but don't make the mistake of not pulling your card on check-in. Once they ring you up, it's over. Ok fair enough, and they did offer a free night extra if we wanted to stay. Close to Shiloh and Corinth, so enjoy their hospitality and stay a few days. Would and will stay again.

Nice park about 35 minutes from downtown Nashville. Sites are gravel/grass and we had to level a bit. Propane on site, gas/diesel down the road, stores close by. They have a nicely stocked RV accessories shop on site as well. Good cable and blazing Wi-Fi. They took both my GS and Passport and did a machination discount. Easy on and off I-65. Would stay again.

Only regret with this park is that we didn't alot more time to stay more than overnight. Easy on and off the interstate, super friendly and helpful staff and a pretty interesting town as it turns out. Site was level and plenty long, hookups were all in good repair. Gas and Diesel right up the road, and propane on site. 10 minutes to the Wally. If you are heading this way, stay a couple days. There is a lot to see, and this is a nice place to do it from.

This really is a parking lot with hookups (but it does have a pool), and that's not always a bad thing. This park is 15 minutes from the Jefferson Expansion Memorial (the Arch) and lot's of other downtown attractions. No doubt this in the city so you have those city noises to deal with, but you have those same noises with a hotel downtown. Very friendly host that gave us lots of things to see and do, and directions to parking downtown, making this a great stop on our travels. Sites are in need of some leveling, and if the place was full it would be pretty tight, but they were using every other space while we were here so that was not a problem. It was easy off the interstate and back on considering how close to downtown we were. Would stay again.

Good Sam rate reflected. In the city, but not really hard at all to get to. Nice park, and it's right downtown. Walking distance to some attractions, short drive to any store you can imagine from Wal-Mart to huge mall shopping. 15 minutes to Arrowhead and Royals stadiums. Only a couple pull through that the management is presently installing, but the back in sites have tons of room to get you square before you even get into the site. Hookups all in good repair. Would stay again.

Overnight stop here, echo the last reviewer. Looked at the pool and spa, looked nice enough. Gravel pads, level, hookups in good repair, great cable TV. Easy on and off I-40. Would stay again.

Pros: Easy access, friendly hosts and hookups in good working order. Cons: No Wi-Fi, No cable, WAAYY over priced considering the location and competition down the road with Wi-Fi for half the price. No GS/Mil discount was offered when asked. Shame on me for not doing a good job on my homework. Their web site: www.countryviewrvpark1.com, fails to list their rates. 10 miles down the road, another park is $18 a night, nearly half what we paid here with less amenities. Assumed (HA!)it would be comparable. Having said all that, this is not a bad park for a couple nights/overnight. Level gravel pads, Verizon hotspot works well and getting a good number of OTA channels. Gravel spots, lots of long term residents. At 30 bucks a night, won't stop here again with comparable parks within 10 miles down the road in Porter at half the price.

This is the one of the best parks we have stayed in. Super large paved sites, concrete pads, and very well maintained hookups. Propane on site, even pizza, wings, beer restaurant on site that also serves breakfast. They also have an RV wash on site. Can't say enough good stuff about this one. Stay 2 nights get the 3rd free and standard discounts applied as well. Friendly and helpful staff. Close to the city, straight off I-40 just down the road from Cadillac Ranch. You have to go past a Love's to get to it, so gas/diesel is right there without going out of your way on the interstate.

Very nice Famcamp, all hookups in good repair. Very level concrete pads. Camp Host was clearly marked and very friendly/helpful, and pointed us to our site to set up and then come back and see him for paperwork. It was really easy to find,. Our GPS took us right to the front gate. Nice place on the lake. We stayed only overnight, and sure in summer with the lake and pool, this place would be a gem. Only downside, 20 bucks for a Famcamp was a little higher than we anticipated, but would rather pay that than KOA prices for less.

A little hard to find, but there are signs that direct you to the RV park. Follow the GPS coordinates to the front gate given at the military campgrounds. They will take you right here, and the directions are accurate. Roads are terrible, but once inside the park, it's nice. Concrete level pads with patio and picnic table. Super friendly hosts with small store in the office for RV essentials; propane on site as well. Yes, there are trains about every 45 minutes; little odd for a base, but not a show stopper for us. Easy access to downtown and base commissary and exchange. Hookups in good repair, lots of space between neighbors. Would stay again.

Right off the interstate, easy pull through sites that are long enough that you can get in and not have to unhitch (35ft trailer). Great overnight spot, spartian but hookups are all in decent repair. Truck stop next door, so gas/diesel before you pull out in the morning. Manager was friendly, they let you pick your site. Retired Military/GS discount, would stay again.

Closest nice park to the caverns. Easy in and out pull through sites, gravel beds that were pretty level. Hookups in good repair. Park is a little dated, but it seems like they are working daily to improve things. Stayed 4 nights and gave us the PA rate for one night and GS rate for the rest. Kids enjoyed the swings and pool. Would recommend this one over another nearby park. Didn't stay there, and glad we didn't. Looked pretty shabby from the drive by.

Well maintained park, super long pull through sites with gravel, very level. Hookups all in good repair, nice spacing side to side. Pulled in after the office closed, but they had our site reservations on the board waiting for us with no problems at all. Easy in and out from the highway. Would stay again.

Decent park on the outskirts of Santa Fe; 20 minutes to the historic downtown. The other parks that are closer to town are not really all that much closer to the downtown, and didn't appear any nicer from the drive-by. Friendly staff that gave us great advice on what to see, where to park, and directions. Hookups in good repair. Would stay again.

Right on old historic Route 66. Very clean and well maintained park. Spaces are kind of tight, but very easy to get in and out of. Very close to the interstate. Good hookups with front and back sewer hookups (nice for us double tankers) Propane and nice camp store on site. Friendly and helpful staff to area attractions. Would stay again.

Nice shady spots, not that we needed them in October, good hookups. The DSNG railroad runs right through the park, so nice evening gatherings with neighbors to watch the trains come back down. Really wonderful town, with great fishing (Gold Medal Trout water), hiking, cycling and all this available on a paved trail that runs through the town, about 15 minutes from the campground to the trail site. A really big plus is the free, that's right, free town trolley stops right at the campground and will take you anywhere in the town you want to go. Would happily stay here again.

Surrounded by amazing geology, this is a pretty unique park. Decent hookups, but the sites can be a bit of a maneuver to get into if you are not on the first level. The sites are dirt, on the side of a hill, so plan on doing some leveling. They have a pool and store, propane, gas/diesel, and an awesome grocery store on premises. It's the only game in town in Monument Valley, still worth the trip. Would stay again, but wonder why the Navajo Tribal Park has not capitalized on building an RV park on all that flat land they have between their park and Gouldings. Be sure and visit the Gouldings Museum to learn about the history of the people that built this place.

Not a bad place, but not as great as it could be. It's a little dated, the sewer hookup was cracked and leaking, and for $45 a night, should have been more. We didn't stay when I'm sure it was peak season and full, and I would imagine it would be a little tight. Pretty level gravel pads, otherwise just kind of dated. Close to the park, but I would pick the park's RV park over this next time.

I'll just echo everyone else. This park knows how to do it. Great large sites, easy maneuver inside the park and on and off the highway. Well stocked store, propane and blazing fast internet. Diesel/Gas at the bottom of the hill on the way out, beautifully maintained park, hookups in excellent condition. These guys set the standard for how a park should be set up. Would not hesitate to stay again, highly recommended!

Very nice resort for trout fishing in the Sierra. If you don't fish, well, the scenery is great too. Nice park but they really stack them in. There are some more open sites to the front, but the back rows are very tight. Good news is that they will be happy to let you drop your camper on the road and they will back it in with a forklift for you. Trust me, this is the best deal in town. Watched some guys that wanted to back themselves in and it took an hour and a divorce lawyer. Let the man put your camper in and pull it out for you! Great camp store and cafe on site. Back off the road a bit but well worth it.

Gave it a ten because it met all our expectations. There's just not that much out there along this stretch of road, and looking at the other parks in the area, this one was hands down better. Big rig pull thrus, functional hookups. No cable or antenna TV. Super friendly staff that helped us out to take a trip to Death Valley and Rhyolite and was full of local information. Great laundry facility as well. Great for an overnight or couple days to see the sights.

Nice shady pull through spots, but not gravel or paved, just kind of in the dirt. Helpful staff, just an older park. The web site gives you the impression it's a lot nicer than it is, but it's not all that bad. It was a little hard to find, as it's more or less through a residential area. We overnighted here, so from that perspective it was fine.

Great Park! We had a back in site rather than a pull through that was in the back of the main campground, but there's enough room there to back in a tractor trailer. Modern well maintain hook ups, wonderful setting and lots to see and do in this very cool coastal town. The owners show home town pride (I always am looking for that) in giving us a really detailed list of things to see and do in the town and area. Would easily stay again and for a longer time.

It's about 45 minutes by bus to Seattle's tourist district, which is not bad and the price reflects city stays. I think it's too pricey for what you get, but IMHO that's the KOA difference. Our site was too small for our camper, but we made it work by parking the truck in their parking lot. Sites are really close together, but again, it's a city campground. Staff was really friendly and very helpful in getting us in and out of Seattle.

Convenient off I-90. Stayed here as an overnight stop. Nice paved pull through sites, well maintained. Very nice pool and biggest hot tub I've ever seen, more like a small pool. Excellent staff as far as friendly and helpful, and they let you wash your rig for 5 bucks. I'd stay again.

Nice little place right off the highway, easy in and out. Had a back in site that had plenty of room to back in a 35' 5th wheel. We stayed here as an overnight stop, but would stay longer to visit some of the local interests. Good Wi-Fi and power voltage, kids enjoyed swimming in the lake, they need to stock it up a bit to really be a catch and release place though. The trains are just part of it, and like a previous reviewer, we enjoyed them and didn't find them all that disturbing. You can tell the owners care about the place as it's in good maintenance shape. Would stay again and recommend it.

There is some merit to the previous reviews, and I'll just give my pros and cons. Pros, right on the Flathead river so nice trout fishing at your back door, not awesome but good wade-able water under the bridge, helpful and friendly staff, no problems with hook ups (electric functioned fine at both sites-we had to move after 3 days to another site, think they take reservations for particular sites which may contribute to that. Inconvenient but not a show stopper), great Wi-Fi and cable. Cons: road noise, there is some long term residents as described earlier, you can get some road noise at the B loop, never bothered us, but it was there, some of the grass sites needed a lot of level. "minutes from Glacier" is more like 45 minutes from Glacier, End of the day, I would stay again, we had a good experience but do believe the other reviewers to be accurate in their assessment.

The facility was really great, nice pool, easy pull through sites, everything you could want to make it a great stay at Yellowstone. The staff were really friendly and helpful in spite of being very busy; they never lost the feel that you were an important customer. Further, I inadvertently left my surge protector at the site, and when I called back 6 hours later, they were able to find it and were happy to mail it on to our next site. Of course, KOA's are pricey, but it's Yellowstone in August, and everything is a premium. Looked at a couple other places there and this was nicer than anything else we saw close to West Yellowstone. Would stay again.

Apart from being rather pricey for an overnight stay, there's nothing at all wrong with this campground. Owners obviously take pride in their campground and it was very neat and clean. Concrete pads, full hookups with cable TV. Nice heated pool and shady sites that were very nice pull throughs. This is one of those destinations on the way to Yellowstone or Black Hills, and it made for a very easy and relaxing overnight stay. Would stay again.

A little off the beaten path, this campground is a hidden gem. While we did not camp here with horses, they were all around us and it was fun to be in the middle of folks and their horses. The campground is all pull through sites, good power and water. PBS reception was excellent, and the free dvd collection was even better than having cable TV. Nice fire rings at each site to have evening fires as the temps do dip down in the 60s in the Black Hills. Custer State Park and Mt Rushmore are less than 30 minutes away. Excellent staff here made this an awesome place to stay in the Black Hills. Don't miss this one!

Right off the I-29 a couple blocks, a great overnight spot to stop. Do yourself a favor and stay a extra day and visit Sioux Falls. This was supposed to be an overnight, but we stayed over just because it was a pretty nice town, easy to get around in, and they campground was great. Very helpful and friendly staff, level gravel sites. Good power and water, we had a back in, but there's plenty of room to maneuver in the on the first shot. Would stay again.

Really nice local park on the lake. Stayed here while visiting family. No shade, so it was pretty hot, but the site was level, had a pull through and had not problem with utilities. Dump station was available and clean. Call for directions, don't rely on your GPS or you may end up in someone's hayfield. Very helpful folks running it. Wi-Fi available for purchase at 5 bucks a day, didn't use it, so can't evaluate it. I'd stay here again.

Got our kicks on Route 66 at this stop. Nice stop on the north south route towards Kansas City. Convenient to the highway, and close to stores and downtown. Really friendly hosts, all pull through sites, some shade, good internet access. Not much to do at the park but plenty to see and do in the area. Would not pass this one up along the highway. Highly recommended.

Very nice state park, well laid out asphalt sites that were pretty level. Back in sites only, but they are at good angles so it was pretty decent to get in. Really nice water park for the kids (both big and small) to cool off after digging the diamond fields in the heat. Nice to have full hookups in a state park.

Great COE park that had plenty of shade. We had a nice back-in site that was on the lake, fishing out the back door. Very helpful staff and nice quiet spot. Only down side was the lack of sewer, but certainly not a reason to miss this great deal. Close to shopping, Would stay again.

Awesome little campground convenient to I-40 in the foothills of the Blue Ridge. Very secure and the owners go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need to make your stay as pleasant. Very family and pet oriented; a great get away or stop along the way to the Smokey Mtns. Laundry on site but no bathhouse/restrooms, but every site has full hookups. Don't miss this one.
