Indian Point Campground, Duluth, Minnesota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $42.00
Overall Rating:

The park itself isn't that bad, and it's very close to downtown Duluth, which is nice. The inner roads of the grounds are easy to navigate, but we were packed in pretty tightly. There were a lot of campers on the property. We did have an issue with our water pressure at one point, and we aren't completely sure if it was due to too many people on one line, or if it was just a fluke for about 30 minutes or so. It was, as is the case with many things, almost immediately after we asked if there was a problem that our pressure was reasonable again. We camped at Indian Point Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lone Eagle Campground (Lake McConaughy SRA), Ogallala, Nebraska

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

Beautiful campground, right on Lake McConaughy. The best part of the grounds was definintely the scenery. The roads getting to the campground were a little rough, and the check-in was a bit confusing; there wasn't an actual person to talk to. Since we had reserved online, we went to our space right away and saw that the campground host had already posted our site for us. There was plenty of space and our spot was only a couple of hundred feet from the water (walking distance with a toddler, a baby, and some chairs in hand). We camped at Lone Eagle Campground (Lake McConaughy SRA) in a Travel Trailer.

Ponca State Park, Ponca, Nebraska

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The navigation of this park was kind of difficult. The visitor's center wasn't exactly easy to find (although it is very close to the front, perhaps we were tired after a long drive), it's the opposite direction at the fork from the campground signs. Navigating the campground is pretty straight forward, the signs are labeled to point to "campground" and "electric sites" but the actual name of the campground isn't as easy to see. There are a lot of turns in the park to get to the camping areas. There is a lot of nature trails and hiking that can be done on the park. We hiked and saw the Old Oak Tree, and we went to the lookout where you can view Nebraska, South Dakota, and Iowa. If you're not up for hiking, you can drive to these points as well. Our site was pretty good. The "yard" was almost right next to some wooded area, so we didn't have a lot of room, but the pad was large enough for the picnic table to sit beside our camper. We camped at Ponca State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Fort Robinson State Park, Crawford, Nebraska

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

There was so much history to see in Fort Robinson. The park as a whole was really pretty, although our site was a little...it could use some work. I don't necessarily blame the camp ground, but it was very awkward. The ant hills made the ground very uneven, which was hard to walk on, and our fire ring was behind our camper, which was very inconvenient. It felt as if we would be using our neighbor's fire ring if we were to use it. I give the park a very good rating because of all the attractions and the hospitality. We camped at Fort Robinson State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Eugene T Mahoney State Park, Ashland, Nebraska

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $22.00
Overall Rating:

We stayed in Lakeside Campground Loop, which didn't have any shower houses nearby. Overall, the campground was nice. The value for the campground itself was great at $22 a night, but recognize that you do pay a daily fee for being in a Nebraska state park (we paid the $45 for a monthly pass since we would be in NE for 10 days). There was a nice marina on the grounds, and it looked like a nice frisbee golf course. For the two nights we stayed, we were very satisfied. We camped at Eugene T Mahoney State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Yukon Trails Camping, Lyndon Station, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $54.00
Overall Rating:

Very nice, secluded spot that we were in. There were some nice features that the park offered (movie theater in the field, free swimming pool w/ kid's pool, $1 "train" ride for the kids, digger's site for the kids (which also cost money, but I'm not sure the amount for a weekend pass)). The park owner and staff was very friendly, and their store was fully stocked which was nice (since we forgot a thing or two). There were even a couple some extra activities available since we were here for 4th of July weekend. In addition, you're only a few miles from the Wisconsin Dells. We camped at Yukon Trails Camping in a Travel Trailer.

The Old Barn Resort, Preston, Minnesota

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $46.00
Overall Rating:

(Price is an estimate) The park as a whole was nice. The Old Barn itself was neat, and it had a nice restaurant inside (although not cheap). Our site was right beside the full-timers on the front row, and maneuvering to back the travel trailer was pretty tight. If we had arrived later and there would have been other tow vehicles parked, it would have been very difficult. The space was clean, but not very level front to back; one end of out trailer was very high in the air. There was a fire ring, but we weren't able to use it due to how close it was to the back of our camper; we didn't want any embers to get on the awning. The staff was very pleasant, and the park was clean. Nearby Lanesboro was very nice with a lot of neat things to do. We camped at The Old Barn Resort in a Travel Trailer.

River View Campground, Owatonna, Minnesota

Date of Stay: September, 2016 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

The staff was very friendly. Due to some recent rainfall, they were unable to keep us in our reserved spot. This wasn't a problem because the spot they moved us to was full hook-up as opposed to water/electric only. Our site was a pull-through site, but still required some navigation to line up properly. Even though it is pet friendly, the site we were on wasn't exactly convenient for pets, but that may be me being nit-picky. Due to it being a holiday weekend and some sites being closed due to the rain, it was a very crowded spot. On the flipside, the train ride for the toddlers was excellent! My son absolutely loved it. Not only that, but they did have ice cream sundaes as well. Overall, it was a nice place that we may visit again, but will likely explore other campgrounds. We camped at River View Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Lake DuBay Shores Campground, Mosinee, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $40.00
Overall Rating:

This was actually our first experience that we wish we would have paid better attention to the negative reviews. I do want to point out that we didn't have any negative experiences with any of the staff, but the property itself was the problem for us.

The sites are very close together. This is the closest we've been to our neighbors in any campsite. Not only that, but with our trailer and truck parked perpendicular to each other, the entire driver's side of my truck was sticking into the road. I understand this was because I have a 34' trailer, but the staff stated they would have no problem accommodating the space I needed. The layout was easy to understand, but the roads were very narrow, and there were decorations on the corners that made turning a little rough. Backing in wasn't easy due to this either, and since everything is dirt/gravel, I'm only happy it wasn't wet. The site wasn't level, and I'm told we had the most level site on the property. The sites didn't appear to be kept up by the owners, I'm confident we left the site much cleaner than we arrived.

There wasn't really much to do in the area either. We did allow our little one to play on the wooden train (which was pretty nice/neat), and there was a little playground. They do offer a boat rental, but don't mention that the damage deposit must be in cash, with no close access to an ATM. Not to mention, they explained that they don't do their walk around until you bring the boat back, which seems a little shady.

We did have to use the laundry facilities, which worked fine, but they smelled terrible. Probably because they were next to the shower rooms and the dump station, but they smelled bad! Fortunately, our clothes did get clean.

I don't really have anything great to say about this property. The people were not rude to me, but due to the spacing and lack of activities, we will not be staying here again. We camped at Lake DuBay Shores Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Indiana Dunes State Park, Chesterton, Indiana

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $23.00
Overall Rating:

We were very pleased that the park had a vacancy or a relatively short notice trip. The park was nice, with plenty of space and nice, flat, concrete pads. If you want to stay outdoors while camping, this state park is very good, with a couple of play areas for young ones, some good hiking trails (the three dune challenge was a good hike on it's own), and very close proximity to the beach, even though the water was quite chilly!

If you like any of your indoor amenities, you will be lacking a bit. We were unable to acquire any TV channels, and there was no WiFi. For us, this really wasn't a problem, we enjoyed being outdoors.

The shower house was mostly clean, but there was some standing water, so be sure to bring shower shoes. The toilets were kept clean with no issues that I experienced.

My only real complaint was that there were no markers to help you back into the park. There was some construction being done on the roads, and they closed traffic on the main entrance into the park. We spent nearly 45 minutes looking for access back to the campsite, and had to call the DNR for directions. This may not be the fault of the State Park, but some signs or a heads up would have been helpful.

Otherwise, we really enjoyed our stay here, and we would stay again should we be in the area! We camped at Indiana Dunes State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Hickory Hollow Campground, Utica, Illinois

Date of Stay: July, 2016 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

This was a very accommodating park. We were a little nervous initially pulling in due to the proximity to the interstate, but we never heard any highway noise. This resulted in a great positive: easy interstate access; without the common negative associated. The grounds are well kept and easy to navigate. The ladies working the office were quite friendly, and were very helpful when the two families that were supposed to join us had to cancel their stay.

I really don't have anything negative to say about this RV park. The price was very reasonable for a full hook-up site. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Nelson's Landing RV Park, Nelson, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: June, 2016 - $38.00
Overall Rating:

Overall, this was a good park. The wireless service was pretty good, which was beneficial due to some of the storms that moved through during our weekend. The site we camped on was perfectly level, a mix of grass and gravel where the trailer was parked, and open grass in front. All sites appear to be full hook-up, and had 20, 30, and 50 amp service.

The biggest problem we had was that there doesn't appear to be a trash bin anywhere on the property. Also, it is a little difficult to find the property. I believe, in the future, they have some better plans, but there are no great markings to indicate where to turn for an "out-of-towner." Finally, there aren't really any activities on-site, so be sure you bring toys for the kiddos. We camped at Nelson's Landing RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Lazy-D Campground & Trail Rides, Altura, Minnesota

Date of Stay: May, 2016 - $50.00
Overall Rating:

Lazy D Campground was the only option available to me due to me not trying to make reservations until one month prior to Memorial Day weekend. With that being said, the customer service on the telephone was very helpful, she gave me great directions on how I should approach the campground with my trailer (34' total length) and the site I would be staying in.

Our biggest cons about the park were the proximity to the highway. There was a lot of road noise. This wasn't much of a problem though, because when the air conditioning was running, we couldn't hear it much. However, it was still noticeable. Another major con was the dump site. There was only one dump site, and it was located by the office, which isn't normally a bad thing. However, being on the half of the grounds across the river, there was no access to the dump without exiting and trying to re-enter the grounds, and that is a lot of tight turns with a 34' trailer. We ended up using an off-site dump-station. They did claim to have WiFi, but we were unable to pick it up in our location. I had great AT&T service, but my neighbors had no cell service with Verizon.

The pros were, in direct conflict with some of the other reviews, the staff was very friendly. They have a lot of amenities: a heated pool, a bouncing pillow, rental tricycles, tube rentals for the river, and so on. On Sunday, they even had free ice cream, which was very nice!

Overall, Lazy D gets a good review. We wouldn't be opposed to staying here again, but we will probably continue to explore other grounds in the area. We camped at Lazy-D Campground & Trail Rides in a Travel Trailer.

Prairie Island Campground, Winona, Minnesota

Date of Stay: October, 2015 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

We were satisfied with the park. The gentleman at the information desk at the beginning was polite, and check in was quick, since I had called earlier in the week. The layout/numbering of the sites was a little confusing. Due to looking online, I had a general idea where my site was, but the signs were very small, and looked like they were still in the process of restructuring. When I initially hooked up my electricity, i wasn't sure if I was using the right box, it had my site number, but also had two other site numbers. The water hookup was similarly confusing. I ended up disconnecting a permanent residents pressure washer gun (I did reconnect it when I left) and hooking in that way. We weren't sure if the lines were owned by the campground or the other residents.

The site was moderately clean. There was some small litter, but nothing that upset us too much. The site was very large in width, which was nice. Having a picnic table and fire pit was also good. The WiFi had recently been boosted and reached our site on the river, good enough to watch Netflix when going to bed (a few buffering breaks).

Our biggest complaint would be noise. The train rolls through pretty frequently. Not only that, but I don't believe there is a "quiet time," since some of our neighbors were up pretty late partying.

We weren't overly impressed with the grounds, and aren't likely to stay again, but wouldn't be opposed if we were in the area and needed someplace to stay for the night while traveling through. We camped at Prairie Island Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground, Salem, South Dakota

Date of Stay: June, 2015 - $30.00
Overall Rating:

This was a single night stay for us while traveling back home, and the campground was perfect for such a trip. The cost was reasonable, and accommodated what we needed for the night. The park was very clean, while dry. The playground for the kids was very nice, our son loved it!

The couple of faults we experienced were after the overnight rain. The gravel roads became a muddy mess, which made utilizing the dump station a little less clean than it can be. Also, while there are fire pits, there were very few that had any grills on them. With the campground being right off of a major exit of I-90, there was also an exceptional amount of road noise. The wireless internet, while available, was exceptionally slow and near unusable for us.

The staff was friendly, the playground was nice, and the lots were well kept. Overall, a good overnight stay. We camped at Dakota Sunsets RV Park and Campground in a Travel Trailer.
