This was our first time staying here, and we really enjoyed this preserve. We were only here for 2 nights, so we stayed in the "H" section, without really investigating other areas of the park. It worked out fine for us, but if you want to be closer to the pool/hot tub, the "B" section would be better. The computers were down at the guard shack, so we could not be advised as to which 50 amp sites were still available. The ranger told us that the manager treats the 50 amp sites as "rentals". We were fine with 30 amp for the 2 nights we were here. The scenery is beautiful, and Cottonwood is only about 10 minutes away, and has all the conveniences you may need. Will definitely return!

We really enjoyed this campground. It is nice and convenient to be inside the NP, and be able to ride the bus shuttle to different areas of the park. There is a nice market within walking distance of the campground. We were greeted by elk the day we pulled in and got set up. The sites are long and level, Verizon signal is decent, we were able to use our satellite, but there was also cable available. We will definitely return to this campground.....highly recommend!

The rate shown was the Passport America rate. We enjoyed our stay here. The staff was friendly and helpful. The campground is small, and about 5 miles from town, so it was very quiet. Utilities worked as they should, we had a clear shot of the sky for satellite, and good Verizon signal. Very convenient to Arches NP and Dead Horse Point SP. We would stay again if in the area.

We enjoyed our stay here. The park is clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The views from there are breathtaking, and Capitol Reef NP is only 20 mins. away. Verizon service is poor.....only 1x. The park offers WiFi, which works best from the pavilion near the office, and especially at night, when less people are using it. Make sure you try a burger from Slacker's Burger Joint down the road. We would stay again if in the area.

We enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in the A loop, which had nice level concrete pads and a clear view of the sky for satellite. Park is nice and clean, and convenient to restaurants and many activities in the area. We would definitely recommend this park, and would stay here again when in the area.

Price shown is the daily rate with a 15% Escapees discount. We enjoyed our stay here. The owners are friendly and helpful, and are working hard to keep the campground nice. Arco is a very small town, so it is very quiet and peaceful here. The utilities all worked well, and we had a clear view of the sky for satellite. About 18 miles to Craters of the Moon NM and Preserve. Would stay here again if in the area.

We enjoyed our stay here. The owners are very friendly and helpful. There are many long-term residents here, but their sites are kept neat. The utilities worked well, and we had a clear shot of the sky for satellite. The campground is located within walking distance of Boise Airport, but we were not bothered by airline noise. Very convenient to the many things to do in Boise. We would stay here again if in the area.

The rate shown is the Passport America rate of $18.50, good for up to 2 nights. (Cash only for Passport America.) We enjoyed our stay here. The staff is very friendly, the park is neat as a pin and well laid out, the utilities worked well, and we had a clear shot of the sky for satellite. As mentioned before, there are several long term residents, but they keep their sites neat and clean. We'll definitely stay here again if in the area.

The rate shown is the daily portion of the weekly rate of $204. This park was very convenient to the West entrance of Glacier National Park (the park was the reason we came to the area). Bill and Melanie, the owners, are very friendly and helpful, and go out of their way to make sure their guests are happy. Sites are gravel, and water/electric only (you get one free visit from the honey wagon per week if your stay is a week or more). We could not get satellite due to tree coverage. My only complaint with the utilities was the low water pressure. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

The rate shown is the daily portion of the weekly rate of $195. We enjoyed our stay here while visiting Medora. Our site (#46) was level, and had a clear view of the sky for the satellite. It is easy to walk into town from the campground, and the entrance to the South Unit of Teddy Roosevelt NP is less than a mile away. Would definitely stay here again when in the area.

The rate shown is the Thousand Trails membership rate. We enjoyed this park. It is very pretty with the number of lakes, and the arrangement of the sites in and among the trees. Our only complaints were that the vast majority of sites are annual, limiting what is available to transient travelers like ourselves, and that the preserve seems understaffed. We were there over Memorial Day weekend, and many things did not seem ready for the season yet. There did not seem to be a lot of activities, even over the holiday weekend. It was fine for us as we don't have children, but kids might find little to do. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for a week prior to the Escapade in Goshen. The park is huge, with a lot of seasonals. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We got a site with a concrete pad and full hookups, with a clear view of the sky for the satellite. This is close to South Bend and several other attractions in the area. Would definitely return if in the area.

The rate shown is the Passport America rate. We stopped here overnight, and the park was adequate for that. The park is nothing fancy, but the staff and everyone we met was very friendly. We also took a trip to see Duck Commander (Duck Dynasty). Was OK, mainly a gift shop. W. Monroe has everything you need for shopping and dining. We would stop again if in the area.

The rate shown is the Passport America rate. We stopped here for one night on our way from Arizona to Virginia. The staff is very friendly, the sites are long and level, nothing blocks the satellite, Verizon service excellent. The buildings are new and very clean, and the pool (although not open for the season) is beautiful with an attached hot tub. Will definitely stay here again when in the area. Highly recommend!

The rate shown is the Escapees rate for a 50-amp site, tax included. We stopped here for one night on our way from Arizona to Virginia. The park was very busy, and looks like a lot of long-term residents use this park. Sites were neat, and everyone was friendly. The park looks a little tired, but is serviceable. Would stay here again overnight if in the area. It is not a destination park.

The rate shown reflects the daily portion of a 4 1/2 month stay. This place is Paradise, and is by far the nicest park we have stayed in during our 20+ years as RVers. The grounds are immaculately kept, the sites are large, there are activities to suit every interest, and everyone we met was very friendly. We took pickleball lessions soon after our arrival, and instantly became addicted to the game. Palm Creek has 24 world-class pickleball courts, so we are spoiled. Casa Grande is a great town, not too big, not too small, with stores and restaurants to cater to your basic needs. Specialty shopping and dining is within an hour's drive near Phoenix. We will be returning in the Fall for 6 months this time. Highly recommend!

The rate shown is for 50 amp service. This is a gorgeous, pristine park with a resort feel. Everyone we met was friendly and welcoming to us. The facilities are immaculate and beautifully kept. There are a lot of activities, so there is something for everyone. Good shopping and restaurants in nearby Temecula. We really enjoyed our stay here, and will definitely be back.

The rate shown is the daily rate ($16/day) and averaged electric usage (calculated at the end of your stay based on actual use.) This is such a pretty park. Everyone we met had a smile and welcoming words for us. The park is super organized and immaculately kept. All the work done within the park (with the exception of a couple of paid workers) is done by the park residents as volunteers. We like to walk, and found that between the roads within the park, and the trails outside the park proper, we could easily walk 5+ miles. We really enjoyed our stay here, and would definitely stay here again.

The rate shown is the Passport America, but were assessed a $5/night electric fee that makes the PPA rate more than half of their regular rate. We stopped here overnight on our way south, and this park was OK for that, but not much more. The sites are long and paved, but a little close together. Utilities worked well for the most part, but water pressure was a little on the low side. Verizon signal was fine.

Rate shown is Passport America, and was given to us for all 6 nights that we were here. This is a nice park with paved sites. Ours was right on the bank of the river, and we had great views out of the front of our RV. The staff is friendly, but the office hours were limited (9-11, 2-5), so if you try to call and don't get an answer, don't give up. There's not a lot in Klamath, but within a short drive you can see the beautiful Redwoods. We definitely recommend this park!

The rate shown is the Thousand Trails rate (actually $0). We enjoyed our stay here. The sites are a little tighter together than we have seen in other TT preserves, but still doable with a 40-foot MH. There is heavy tree cover, so satellite cannot be accessed except on maybe a few sites. Verizon service is pretty nonexistent, but there is Wi-Fi in the clubhouses and you can get a cell/date signal without having to drive too far. Newport is a neat town, and is only about 5 miles away. There is a walking trail from the park that takes you right across highway 101 to the beach. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely return!

The rate shown reflects the daily portion of the weekly rate. We really enjoyed our stay here. Everyone is very friendly, and the park is well maintained and well laid out. Our site was very large and level (gravel), all utilities worked well, and cable is included. It's a little over an hour to the coast. Roseburg is about 15 miles to the south and offers all the shopping and eateries you could want. We will definitely stay here when in the area again.

The rate shown reflects our Thousand Trails membership (actually free, but I had to put something in the field). This is the first time we have been to a west coast preserve, and Bend/Sunriver is now one of our favorite TTs. The sites are spacious, and not on top of one another. The staff is very friendly, and the park seems to be in good repair. The water and electic hookups worked very well, and used a "Blue Boy" to empty our tanks. There is a lot to see and do in the area, especially for outdoor enthusiasts, and Bend is about 14 miles north: close enough for shopping or eating out. We will definitely return. (Can't wait!)

We really enjoyed our stay at this park. The staff is very friendly, and are always at work keeping the campground looking spiffy! The surroundings are beautiful, and you are not too far from town for shopping, restaurants, etc. There is ample room between sites, and each site is 90 feet long, and level. Highly recommend! Will stay here again when in the area.

The rate shown reflects a weekly rate of $200.88. We stayed here for 3 weeks while we toured Yellowstone NP via the West entrance. This park served our needs well.....the west gate to Yellowstone was about 15 miles from the campground, and that rate they charge here is definitely the best in the area. The staff is very friendly and helpful. As mentioned before, the office is inside the launndromat, and the nearest grocery store is about 8 miles south of the campground (small store at Robin's Roost, with high prices...stock up as much as you can before you arrive! The next closest is in West Yellowstone, MT, outside the gate to Yellowstone.....also high prices!). Utilities worked well, and campground was quiet. Would stay again if in the area.

The rate reflects a weekly rate. This is the best deal in private campgrounds in Cody. The park is older, but very clean and well-run. Bigger rigs take up every inch of the length of the sites, but can still fit into the spaces. Cody is a great town, lots to see and do. We would definitely stay here again if in the area.

We were here for the Escapade, and stayed in the Boxelder campground. We had FHU with 30 amp electric. All utilities worked well, and we had a clear shot of the sky for satellite. We had good weather while we were here, so we had no issues with mud or getting stuck (the poor folks at the FMCA rally a week or so prior to our arrival had a tough time with the mud after many days of heavy rain.) This is a very nice venue, and Gillette has all the conveniences you might need. Would definitely stay here again.

Rate reflects Passport America rate. We found this park to suit our needs well. When we arrived after a heavy rain, we found that the site assigned to us was full of water, so the office staff gave us another site to try, and it worked out fine. The campground is fairly central to many attractions in the area. There is a great pizza place right around the corner (Lintz Bros.), and a drive-in movie theater within a couple of miles.....we enjoyed them both! We will definitely stay here again when in the area.

We enjoyed our time here. Please call the campground for directions to the park (you get off an exit south of the one that it is near to avoid making an impossible u-turn). They have recently paved the sites in the newer section of the park, so they had us park on piece of plywood (which they supplied) to avoid making holes in the asphalt. There is some highway noise due to the proximity to the interstate, but it was not bad. Sioux Falls is a wonderful city, with lots to see and do. We will definitely return, and highly recommend this park.

We were here for the Nebraska Samboree. Camping facilities were adequate: 30 amp/water. Some parking is on the gravel parking area, and some is on grass. There are a few full hookup sites available. There is only 1 dump station, so we chose to dump our tanks the night before the Samboree ended since we didn't want to get caught up in a line of many RVs trying to dump at the same time. We dumped our tanks, and then moved to an open area near the stables to spend our last night. Be sure to visit the Hastings Museum while in town, and learn about the history of Kool-Aid!

We really enjoyed our time at this park. The camphost is friendly and helpful, and the park is very pretty. As mentioned before, electric (50 amp on only a few sites....others are 30 amp) is the only utlility available. There are 3 water bibs for filling your tank, and a dump station located near the exit. There is a great walking/jogging/biking trail within 1/4 mile of the campground entrance....the trail is 3.1 miles long, and is very pretty. We enjoyed Papillion a great deal, and enjoyed the nearby Minor League baseball games, too!

What a gem of a park! The rate reflects $5 off the mid-tier price with Players Card from casino. (There are 3 prices for sites, based on the length of the site. We got the mid-priced site, usually $26, with $5 off. That worked well for a 40-foot coach and small toad). The campground is laid out well, with concrete pads/patios. All sites are pull-through. Utilities worked well, there is cable and Wi-Fi available (we didn't use either), and security will drive you to the casino and back if you wish. The casino is not too big and crazy, and the restaurants are great! Highly recommend!

We are Escapees members, and the rate reflects the daily portion of a weekly rate. This park is adequate; sites are gravel, and ours was pretty unlevel. Untilities worked well, we had a clear shot of the sky for satellite, and our Verizon signal was strong. Sites and road need more gravel. Office staff friendly and helpful. As others had mentioned, convenient to College of the Ozarks and Branson Landing, but most other attractions/shopping are 20-30 mins. away.

This is the prettiest state park we have ever stayed in. We were in the "A" loop, and while we did not have a waterfront site, we had a great view of the lake nonetheless. The park has wonderful facilities, and lots of activities. This is definitely a favorite of ours, and we will return.

The rate shown was a rally rate. We really enjoyed this campground. We were here for a rally, and the staff were friendly and helpful. The sites are long, level, paved and landscaped, and the pavilion that we used for our rally was great! The only negatives: GNATS! (Not the fault of the campground, but a nuisance nonetheless!), and the Wi-Fi (very slow at times, but they are working on it). We also had problems with our Verizon signal: it would go from 4G to 1x to nothing, and then back up to 3G/4G. Weird, but not the fault of the park, either. Lots to see and do in the area. We would stay here again if in the area.

The rate shown reflects the weekly rate of $100. We stayed here for a week while we came for service for our motor home. The park is bare-bones, but adequate. There is an unattended "24-hour" office, where you can fill out an envelope with your information and deposit your campground fee. Tiffin Service Center will work with you if you need to stay here due to their campground being full. The campground is gravel, with a clear shot at the sky for satellite. It does get at little muddy after a heavy rain, and the sites furthest from the road are the quietest. Would stay here again if in the area.

The rate shown reflects a discount given for warranty work done on our motor home. The regular daily rate is $20. This is a no-frills campground, but is convenient due to its proximity to the service center. It is dusty when it is dry, and muddy when it rains. There is Wi-Fi available to all sites, but there is no cable. Clear sky for satellite use.

This is a beautiful COE campground. The sites are long, level, concrete, and there is a lot of natural beauty all around. The sites in Catoma loop (where we stayed) had 50amp electric, water, and sewer. We were able to get satellite, but once the trees leaf out fully it may be a little more difficult in some sites. The camp hosts were friendly and helpful. We stayed here both on the way to and from a trip to another city in Alabama, and would definitely stay here again when in the area. Montgomery is about 20-25 minutes away, with lots of things to see and do.

The price reflects the Passport America rate. We stopped here for an overnight stopover and were very pleased. The pads are concrete and include a picnic table/benches. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The only drawback is the campground is in the flight path to JAX, and can be noisy as the planes fly pretty low overhead, as the airport is not far away at all. (There are no flights overnight, however). We would stay here again if in the area.

The price reflects the Passport America rate. This is a good place to stay overnight, but I'm not sure about a longer stay. It's really not a "destination" campground. It served our needs well as an overnight stopover. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Entrance roads are very windy. (Our GPS warned us to take an "extreme" right: she was right!) We would stay again if in the area.

We stayed here for several weeks after selling our home. The campground is old, and not built to accommodate bigger rigs. We had to squeeze into our site with a 40' motorhome, and we were told that there are only about 3 to 4 sites that could accommodate a rig that size. The sites are also very unlevel. On the positive side, the staff is very friendly and efficient, and the wi-fi works pretty well. There is not much of a campground offering in the area, and the price reflects that. With that being said, we would still stay here again if in the area.

It's been 15 years since we've camped here, and things look about the same as they did then. The campground is very tired looking and is in need of some TLC. Nonetheless, it served our purposes as a one night stopover on our way to and from GA from VA. We paid $22 with the AARP disount (have your card handy, as they actually copy down your member number on the paperwork). Also, I had planned to pay with cash, but was told that although cash was accepted, they needed to keep a credit card number "on file". (?) I just charged the overnight fee each time. ***Don't forget to drop your key card at the office upon departure (there is a little box outside the door if you leave before the office opens at 10am). I'm sure you will be charged for it if it is not returned.*** The restrooms were very dated, but were clean. We would probably stay here again.

I grew up in Hopewell Junction, but moved out of the area 30 years ago. Back in the day, this was a day-use park, with limited camping (tent only). The beach area is now only available for those camping here, and not to the public. The road in is in very poor shape, and we were wondering if we should go on. We were parked up the hill in the "Meadow", and the camping area itself was OK. The hookups are old, and the sewer is all the way at the back of the site, so make sure you have plenty of sewer hose. (We had to go to Wal-Mart in Fishkill to get another 10-foot section). We had 50 amp power, decent water pressure and good view of the sky for the satellite. They only accept cash or checks, and it's $45 per nite, no tax. Way overpriced for what you get, but there is nothing else in the area, and it was convenient for us as we were visiting friends in the area. The bathhouse/laundry room combo is a JOKE! There is only one shower stall each for men and women, and there is only 1 washer and one dryer, and it shares space with various tools and the snow blower, plus it's a hike down the hill from the campsites to even use it. It hasn't been updated since I left here in 1981. AND you have to pay 50 cents for 10 minutes of shower use! There are several seasonals in the campground, but they seemed friendly, and kept their lots neat.

Very nice campground in a VERY underused (it appears) Virginia State Park. As mentioned previously, there are lots of trails to bike, hike and ride horses on, you can kayak/canoe/boat from the park, and there is a variety of wildlife to see. Even after Memorial Day, the Camp Store hours are limited (closed on Mondays and Tuesdays). The contact station at the entrance to the park will alert campers as to where to register. There are no designated swimming areas at this park, which may be keeping some people away from the park. Nonetheless, we found our time here to be very pleasant and relaxing. We would definitely return.

We stayed here while having warranty work done on our Tiffin coach. The price shown reflects the cost of staying here after the warranty work was complete. (No cost until all warranty items are completed.) The water was turned off for the winter, but water was easily gotten at 2 different locations, and was turned back on the day before we left. Camp hosts are very friendly and helpful. There are full hookups, strong Wi-Fi, but no cable TV, and only 4 over the air channels. (Luckily, we were also here for a satellite dish install!) Very nice to be camped so close to the service facility.

We stayed here overnight both on the way to and from our final destination. The price shown reflects the 15% Escapees Discount, which was great to get! The staff is very friendly, and the campground was as neat as a pin. The layout of the campground makes parking very easy. We used the long pull-through out by the main road, since we were "short-timers", but the sites near the lake are lovely, and even include a 2-person swing, so that you can enjoy the pretty view. We will definitely be back here when in the area. Highly recommend!

We loved this campground. The sites are concrete and nice and level, and angled to the driver's side. It's as if someone who actually drives an RV planned this park! The park is as neat as a pin and the staff is super friendly. Electricity and water pressure were great, and the WiFi worked well. We enjoyed the casino as well. There is a shuttle that will take you from your site to the casino, but it's an easy 5 minute walk otherwise. The entire casino property was very pretty. We would DEFINITELY stay here again.

Good cell service, but the Wi-Fi didn't work well, even though we were very close to the Wi-Fi repeater. There is open Wi-Fi from the real estate development company that is located upstairs from the park office, and we would take our laptop to the front porch and log onto their Wi-Fi. Very convenient to local attractions. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here on an overnight trip from Mississippi to Virginia, after picking up our new motorhome. The staff was very friendly, and the park is clean. The pull-through sites are nice and long, and it is easy to maneuver around the park. I would give this park a higher rating, but for the access road (Horton Highway), which was narrow and too tight. We would probably stay here again if in the area.

We stayed here before trading our 5th wheel at the nearby RV dealership for a 40 foot motorhome, and again after taking delivery of our motorhome. The camp hostess was very friendly and accommodating, especially since we were "motorhome newbies". The park is very clean, well-kept and nicely landscaped. As stated before, the campground is close enough to all the conveniences, yet quiet and peaceful. We would definitely stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay here.The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the entire campground and all facilities were neat as a pin. We had good cable, wifi and cell phone reception. The sites are a bit close together, and the fees are high for the area, as there is not much to do. We would stay here again.

We stopped here for an overnight stay. The above price was with our Good Sam discount, and for full hookups, so this was a very reasonably priced park. The campground is a little difficult to find, and the roads leading to it are hilly and windy. There were several "permanent" sites, but they were neat. Everyone obeyed the quiet hours. The staff was friendly and helpful. You can pick up several TV channels over the air, and the Wi-Fi was excellent. We would stay here again.

We were camped here for an RV rally, so I cannot pinpoint the exact fee per night, as it was part of our total fee for the rally. We enjoyed our stay here. The facilities are nice and clean. Staff was friendly. We had 30amp electric only, and had plenty of power. There is one dump station that is in a bit of an awkward location, but useable nonetheless. You can pick up several TV stations over the air. Would definitely camp here again.

We camped here overnight. We did not have reservations, and when we arrived, the park looked full. (They were having a Gospel Sing weekend, which looked pretty popular). They did have a site for us (we just needed w/e), but it was at the far edge of the property with no cable TV or Wi-Fi available that the other sites had, and was sooooo far from a bathhouse. (They only have one for this large campground.) There was a porta-john near our site for our use. While we were grateful that they had room for us: we were charged the same rate that sites with more amenities would pay. Staff was friendly and helpful, given the circumstances. We would stay here again if there was nothing else nearby.

We stayed here with a group for a small rally. We were put in the upper section, which was very quiet. For whatever reason, our group was a little broken up, but it didn't ruin our fun. The water pressure was excellent, as was the voltage level. Our only complaint was that the Wi-Fi didn't really work well for us, but it did for others in our group. The campground is very well maintained, and it is peaceful to watch the Amish/Mennonite farmers work the field next to the campground. We would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed here twice before, and suggested this campground for our Good Sam chapter to try. Everyone in the group was very impressed at how neat and clean everything was, and how pretty the landscaping looked, even at the end of the camping season. The owners take great pride in this campground, and are very friendly and easy to talk with. They would come out in the evening and make sure we were having a good time. We will definitely return here often.

This was our first visit to this state park, and we enjoyed our stay very much. The park is neat and the staff was on top of maintenance. I do agree that $5/pet/night is a little steep. If you have pets, especially multiple ones, you are paying "resort" campground fees, and although the scenery is beautiful, this is not a resort campground. The sites are grass with no gravel, and when we arrived, it was raining, and had been doing so for several days, so we had trouble with traction as we were backing our rig into the site. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and would definitely stay here again.

We joined Thousand Trails this past summer, and Outdoor World is part of our contract. We drove over to see this campground shortly after joining TT, and at first we were not impressed. At first glance the sites seemed tight and uneven. The campground is obviously an older one, built before today's "big rigs". We decided to give it a try while visiting Colonial Williamsburg, and I have to admit, we were pleasantly surprised once we were set up. You get to pick your own site, and then tell the office staff where you are. There were several level sites that were long enough to choose from. The staff was super friendly right from the beginning. Cell service (AT&T) was excellent, and Wi-Fi was available for $5/day or $15/week. Since it was a Halloween Weekend, there were a lot of activities planned. All common areas were neat and clean. Our only complaints are: water pressure drops on occasion, and the location of some of the trees in/near campsites can make maneuvering tricky. We were very happy, and will definitely return.

This was our first time to Walnut Hills, and we were camping with our Good Sam chapter. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly, courteous and efficient. The roads were windy, yes, but were well-marked with good signage. There is one point where there is 2-way traffic, and the road is not much wider than one lane at this point. We did not encounter any problems here, however. Our site was up on the hill, and we found our site to be spacious, level and shady. Cell service was excellent, and wifi is offered for $2 a day. We will definitely return!

We just bought a Thousand Trails membership, and Thousand Trails has just acquired Outdoor World. This was our first use of the TTN/Outdoor World system. We just love this place. Right from the start, we were greeted with neatly manicured and landscaped surroundings. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. We were told to pick out a site to our liking, and then return to the office to let them know where we'll be. The sites are long and level, and spaced nicely apart from neighboring sites. There is a nice variety of farm animals here: fun for adults and kids alike. Can't say enough about this place. We'll definitely return!

We came here on a "Free Weekend" marketing deal, and ended up buying a membership. We had an absolutely perfect weekend here. The preserve has a variety of sites, from waterfront, to open, to wooded. There are a lot of activities, and the campstore is well stocked. The staff and other campers were very friendly and always had a smile and a "hello". We are lucky to have this preserve close to home for us, and will definitely return.

We came here with our Good Sam chapter. As stated before, the location is off the beaten path, and there are no attractions in the immediate area. We wanted to relax, and it was perfect for that. The campground was clean, well laid out, and attractive. The campstore is adorable, decorated with antiques. They have a small cafe in the store, and we got the milkshakes, which were yummy. Made the old-fashioned way. (Try the chocolate/kahlua shake: non-alcoholic and delicious!) I took points off for the high price and lack of some amenities: Wi-Fi, cable, and there is poor cell service at the campground. They also charge $10 for a security gate card, which is refunded upon departure. There are no discounts offered, except for FMCA, and you need to pay in cash to get that.

We came here to campare various brands of motorhomes for when we fulltiming. We had no intention to buy at this time, and were not hounded by any salespeople. The Rally Park is nice and clean, and the sites were paved and had ample space. We took advantage of the free breakfast and lunch each day, and also took the Driver Confidence Course, since neither of us had driven a motorhome. We learned a great deal from Barney, the instructor, and do feel very confident behind the wheel of a 40 motorhome. We had a wonderful time, and would definitely return.

This park very nice for overnight stopping. All the sites are concrete and pull-thru. When you arrive, you pick your own site, and a very nice lady comes out to meet you to collect the fee. She is sweet as can be! Please note: THEY ONLY ACCEPT CASH OR CHECKS. There are plenty of restaurants in the area, and there is no road noise to speak of. The only negative is that the sites are close together, but it was not a problem for us. Big rigs can fit comfortably in the sites. Would definitely stay here again.

This was a very nice park to stay in. The design of the campground was such that maneuvering in and out of your site was a breeze. They had the W/E (mosty one-nighters) in a separate area, and the park was immaculate. The office staff was very friendly and welcoming. There is free Wi-Fi, but no cable TV. The only negative was that the electricity levels were a little on the low side. The bathrooms were spotless. Would definitely stay here again.

We are new to the Escapees club, and this was our first experience at an Escapees park. We arrived at 10pm, and the after-hours check-in process was very organized. We had a pull-through site available to us, so we chose that. Most of their sites are back-in, and larger rigs might find a tight fit in these. The pull-throughs could accommodate most any rig. The park was very clean and orderly, and the staff was super friendly. The laundry room and bathrooms were the cleanest we've seen anywhere in 16 years of RVing. It was a pleasure to stay here.

This campground was very nice. It is clean and the sites are laid out well. All the sites were concrete, and ours was a long, level pull-thru. The casino and horse racing track is across the street on one side, and an amusement park is on the other. Would definitely return here.

This was a good park to spend one night in while traveling. It was easy to maneuver in and out of sites. THEY DO NOT TAKE CREDIT CARDS. So be prepared. We received a 15% Escapees discount, making the total $20.40. There is a lot of traffic noise. An interstate highway on one side, and train tracks on another. We had the A/C on all night, so we really weren't bothered by it, but if your windows were open, it would be difficult to sleep.

This was a good park for overnight camping. We had originally chosen a W/E only site, since we were just staying one night, and the W/E sites are all grass. The weather forecast was predicting heavy thunderstorms, so we asked for a gravel site (FHU sites are the only gravel ones). We paid $2 extra for this and were glad we did, as a torrential thunderstorm came through, and the ground was soaked. We would have had trouble getting out of a soggy site. We had weird shared hookups at our site, but it was not a problem. Staff was friendly.

We enjoyed our stay here. This is an older park, so some of the sites are shorter and narrowed by trees. The grounds are clean and well-kept, and the staff was very friendly. The electricity and water pressure were great, but we could get absolutely NO cell service (AT&T), and there are only 2-3 channels available via an air antenna. The Wi-Fi signal was spotty. Sometimes great, sometimes not. Everyone was respectful of quiet hours at night. We will return when in the area.

This was our second time here. The campground is lush and natural. The entry to each site is a little tight because of the vegetation. The park is gorgeous, and interesting. We recommend the boat tour up the St. John's River as well. Will definitely be back!

This is such a lovely campground! Each site is beautifully landscaped and clean, with a concrete pad and patio. We even saw the staff make sure each site was spotless after an RV left, and before the next RV arrived! The facilities are clean, and the nearby beach is gorgeous. Will definitely be back!

This was the first time we camped at this park. We stayed on Loop B (only loop open), and found it to be very pleasant. There weren't many people there, and it was very quiet. The site was large with a nice gravel pad with a picnic table, fire pit and lantern pole. Our only complaints were that the water pressure was low, and the voltage would drop to low levels as well. The view from the cliffs is gorgeous. We will return here.

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was a beautiful Fall weekend, with great weather. The campground was filled almost to capacity, but was very quiet. The sites are large, and spaced nicely apart. The bath houses were the nicest we've seen at any state park, complete with laundry facilities. We will definitely return!

We were here for the RV show in Hershey. The location was convenient to the show, and other Hershey attractions. Our site was perfectly level, and the roads in the campground were nice and wide. We did hear road noise from I-283, but we were not bothered at all by it at night, and we had our windows open. Bathrooms were clean, and the staff was friendly. Will return here when we come up for next year's RV show in Hershey.

We have camped here before, and really like the beauty of the park. (This was 8-9 years ago). We've never had problems with reservations: until now. I had made reservations for our trip 4 months prior, and made the reservation over the phone. I told the young lady on the phone we needed a pull-through site with full hookups and 30 amp service. When we got here, we ended up with a back in with 50 amp service, and were charged for a "premium" site. I showed the "child" at the counter the confirmation we received from them, stating that we were to get a pull-through/30amp/FHU, and he said that the online reservation service has problems, and "defaults" you to other sites. I told him I spoke to someone over the phone to make the reservations, and did not use the internet, but to no avail. We later spoke to the gentleman across the street from us, and he indicated that for an extra $10 (non-KOA fee?), you can reserve a specific site. I'm sure someone is pocketting that extra fee. There is limited cable here (there were more channels in years past) and no Wi-Fi (ridiculous for such a pricey campground). Unfortunately, there aren't many campgrounds in the area, so they don't have much competition.

We stayed here overnight on our way to New York. This campground is OK for overnighting, but is not a "destination" campground. I would describe this place as "creepy". There are a lot of seasonals there, and the maintainance/ activity/ bathhouse buildings look shabby, and there is a lot of junk around them. While I rated the showers as "clean", I would have to say that they are difficult to use: hard to regulate water temperature, and you have to use a pull-chain to get the water to flow, so you end up taking a "Navy" shower. There is no cable or wifi, and the price is reasonable at $27 for full hookups. We will look elsewhere if we need to be in the area.

We stayed here while attending the Life On Wheels Conference in Bethlehem, PA. The road into the campground is on a curve/hill combination off the main road, but is clearly marked with a huge KOA sign. The campground is very peaceful and shady, with a nice creek running through it. We were escorted to our site, and found the staff to be very friendly. Our site was long, level and shady...great during those beastly hot days we've had. We had a very nice stay, and would definitely return here.

We just returned from a great weekend at New Point, camping with our Good Sams chapter. I have to see, we were a little leary about this campground due to the previous posts, but I'm happy to say that we were pleasantly surprised. The campground has new owners, which has improved everything. We were one row back from the sites on the Chesapeake Bay. The site was wide and level, but not all that deep. We had full hookups, but no cable or Wi-Fi. We did get about 10 channels with our antenna. The majority of the sites are seasonal, but are well-kept. There was a nasty taste and color to the water, but those in our group who had filtration systems seem to have no problems with this. There was a nice beach at the bay: soft, white sand. Once I saw my first jellyfish (common at this time of year), I headed for the pool. Overall, we had a great time, and would definitely return.

This was the first time we've camped at Country Waye, and we loved it. The owners were friendly, and gave us a lot of information regarding local things to do. The campground is very clean and well-kept. We chose a site parallel to the fence line, which was a great site. We had a wonderfully peaceful weekend. I would rate this campground a "10" except for the steep uphill grade that takes you from the office area up to the campsites. It is gravel, and on a somewhat blind curve. We wondered what would happen if two rigs were trying to use that hill at the same time. We will definitely return here again.

This was a very pleasant campground. The store was new, clean and well-stocked. The staff was very helpful. Some of the sites were a little short for a longer rig. Good wifi signal at our site. Experienced several bouts of low voltage, this was the only real negative to this park. We would return here.

We've just returned from a wonderful trip to Four Paws Kingdom. We were originally camping in Myrtle Beach, but Hurricane Ophelia changed our plans. Host and hostess were so accommodating, knowing of our evacuation, and allowing us to arrive VERY late. (After midnight.) Our Golden Retriever loved the play area, and even ventured into the swimming pond (he's not a swimmer!). The bathhouse is the nicest we've seen in 14 years of camping! We thoroughly enjoyed our relaxing stay here, and are planning to return next year.

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The campground is well designed, obviously by people who have actually camped in an RV! We stayed in one of the pull-thru super sites, which is extra long, with a concrete pad. Would highly recommend these sites! They even had gravel around the hookups, so your hoses, wires, etc... do not get muddy. The staff was very friendly, and the bathhouse was clean as a whistle. Would highly recommend this campground.
