This Missouri State Park is along the Missouri River, but the River is not really a feature of the campground. It is wooded, with most sites well separated, in a loop configuration. Some sites, primarily those on the backside of the loop, have more privacy because of better separation and more vegetation between sites. The sites have electrical, some with 50 amp. We had strong 50 amp service. There is potable water, with the easiest to access to fill a tank, at the dump station. Most sites are fairly level with nicely packed gravel. The campground is fairly quiet, with only background road noise. The Sunday that we were there, there was a lot of drive-through traffic which was a bit annoying but not a big deal. There are security gates that are closed between 10 pm and 7 am, a nice security feature. There is a campground host who was not overly friendly, but was efficient and got the job done. We did not use the restrooms, but did use the available pay laundry with one washer and one dryer, a very nice touch. We were able to find a hole through the trees for our satellite dish and we had very strong Verizon data and voice. The park is wonderfully conveniently located for visiting the Kansas City area. We would certainly stay here again.

This is a very nice COE park on Stockton Lake. It could be even nicer with some cleanup, but it still rates a very positive review. The lake is a "minimum development" COE project, so not many houses visible, just beautiful wooded shoreline. Most of the sites are either right on the water or with water views. A few are in the wooded section. During the week, the park was not busy; however, it is a different matter on the weekends with a full campground and lots of kids and bikes. It calmed down at night, so no problem from late-night activities. It seems to be a very family-oriented park. For the weekend, reservations are definitely advisable. We stayed as we were passing through on Interstate 49. It was harder to get to from 49 than we expected. Do expect to be driving on some pretty small country roads. Do not just blindly follow your GPS as it will take you on some really bad roads. The route through Stockton is the best bet. There is not water at the sites, so fill at the dump station. We had strong 30 amp service. We had good Verizon voice and data. Satellite was not a problem from our site. The sites are paved and most seem to be fairly level. The only restroom in the B loop is a vault toilet. The flush toilets are a ways away near the campground attendant. We would certainly stay here again.

the rate reflects a 50% Federal Senior Pass. This is a very nice COE park on the Cossatot River just after it comes out of Gilham Lake Reservoir. It is showing its ware and could use some spiffing up, but still nice. You do not want to let your GPS guide you to this park. You will want to take the turn-off just north of Gillham on Highway 59 and follow the signs. It is well-signed on the Highway, then there is one well-signed left turn. It is always good paved road. Once you get to the park, the sign is confusing. You will want to take the right turn to get to the campground. Some of the sites are on a bluff above the river, others are a little away from the river and more wooded. We liked the river side for the view and for the sound of the river. We had good 50 amp service. You do share a water faucet with a neighbor, so do bring some extra hose. We were partly under trees, so had to use our portable satellite dish to get DirecTV. We had strong Verizon voice and data. The sites are large and level. Some sites can be reserved, others are first-come. You pay at the booth as you enter the campground area. This made an excellent stop for a few nights for us. We would stay again.

We always enjoy staying at this campground. Some sites are very near the water with great views, but most without shade. Some sites are more wooded without water views but nicely shaded. Most sites are fairly level. Our site was open so no problem with satellite. We had very good Verizon voice and data. The gate attendants were very nice and helpful. When we were there, it was very busy on the weekend, but the weekdays were very quiet. Most sites can be reserved, although a few are first-come. Reservations would be advisable during the busy season and definitely on the weekend.

Most of the sites do not have shade and there are almost no pine trees, but, other than that it is almost perfect. The short-term stays are assigned to the center pull-through spaces which are level and paved. It is very easy to stay without unhooking a tow. The utilities were all very good. Satellite is certainly not a problem since there are few trees. We had a very strong Verizon cell and data signal. It is on a busy highway, so there is traffic noise, but it was not too bad at night. One thing worth noting. It is not really the campground's fault, but we had a terrible smell from the near-by paper mill all night, but that is true of the entire area. We would certainly stay here again.

The rate reflects a Federal Senior Pass discount of 50%. When we stayed here about half of the sites were flooded. Most of the other COE campgrounds on the lake were closed because of flooding. Even so, the campground was not full during the week. Most of the sites have some shade trees. We were able to get satellite through a hole in the trees at our site. We had very good Verizon data and voice. There is a gate attendant and the gate is locked during the night to give some security. However, during the day, there are a lot of lookers driving past. The lake is visible from most sites. Overall, the campground could be very nice, but it has a tired, sort of dirty look. It could use some help. There is a pump of some type near the campground which runs continually. If you are around site 16, you will be able to hear this pump very well, which we would find very annoying. The park, overall, was quiet during the week. Unfortunately, some of the longer term folks have put up lights that are very bright, so it is not dark at night. We would probably try to stay at one of the other COE campgrounds if in the area again.

The rate does not reflect a required daily entrance fee unless you have a Texas State Park pass. Only a very few of the sites have any sort of water view at all. The campsites in this park are heavily tree covered, good for a hot day. We were lucky enough to be able to find a site with a hole to get satellite. We had very good Verizon data and voice. Most of the sites are not very long or would be very hard to level. The campground is fairly convenient to Mt. Pleasant. We were mainly there to visit friends, so did not explore the park itself very much.

The price reflects 50 amp service. We stayed at this primarily to visit the Mammoth Monument, about 20 minutes away. The person checking us in was pleasant. The sites are reasonably spaced and level. Most of the sites have at least some shade. There are obviously many long-term residents, but that was fine with us. It was nice and quiet at night since it is a ways out in the country. Unfortunately, there are many large bright street lights, so not dark at night. We had very good Verizon data and voice. The park WiFi was exceptionally good. We were able to get satellite through the trees. We did use their laundry, which is on the honor system (pay when done at the office) and was $1.50 per wash and the same per dry. The laundry room was disappointing. The machines were old and rusting and the laundry room was quite dirty. We would stay here again, but would certainly not use the laundry.

In addition to the camping fee there is a $5 per day entrance fee unless you have a Texas State Park pass. The park is fairly easy access from interstate, just outside of Junction, Texas. The sites are well spaced and most have at least some shade. We could see through the trees enough to get satellite. We did not have a usable Verizon data signal and limited voice. The whole area seems to be off of the cell grid. The camp hosts were very nice and helpful. There is hiking or biking on the several trails and, of course, the river to float. We would certainly stay at this park again.

The price for this campground is certainly right, particularly if you have a Texas State Park annual pass so that you do not have to pay the daily entry fee. When we stayed, it was very busy on the weekend, so that we could not get reservations, but the weekday was less than 1/4 full. The big attraction here is, of course, the pool. On the weekend it was full of kids, but, again, calm during the week. This is west Texas, so it is very often windy, which it was during our visit. It can also get very hot and there is almost no shade in the campground, although some of the picnic tables have shelters. We were able to get good Verizon voice and data. There are a few 50 amp sites, one of which we happened to get. We happened to be there during a moth infestation, so a week later, we are still trying to get rid of the moths. We would stay there again if passing though the area, but would not go out of our way.

The rate is the daily rate. Electric costs us $3 more. The park is beautiful and very well kept. Check-in was painless. They do give you several sheets of paper, including detailed rules and regulations. As with all Escapee parks there is a 4 pm social hour; everyone was quite pleasant. The sites are huge. Some have the owner's storage shed/casita on the site, ours did not. The park is very quiet as it is a ways off of the road. We stayed for one night, but it would be very easy to stay a week or even longer.

Date of Stay:

We only stayed one night, but our stay was very pleasant. The campground is only a couple of miles from Interstate, making for a very easy overnight. There is some very faint freeway noise, but not objectionable. There are some sites with 50 amp service, but our site had 30 amp service, which was good. There is also water at the sites. The dump station is convenient. We had good Verizon voice and data. Satellite was not a problem as there are no trees. We did not have reservations, so when we arrived at the campground, which is a couple of miles before the Visitor Center, we just found an unoccupied site. We had planned just to register with the "iron ranger" drop slot. Just to check, I called the Visitor Center and was told that, prior to setup, we had to come to the Visitor Center to be assigned a site and pay our fee. I did get her to tell me that the site we had chosen was open and have her hold it until I could come down and pay the fee.

In addition to the daily rate of $30 for an electric (50 amp) and water site, there is an $8 reservation fee. This county park is a ways outside of Phoenix, but still a good spot to stay while visiting the area. The sites are large and fairly well spaced. While most of the sits are paved, a few, including our site, are gravel. It was fairly quiet during our two-day visit there. We had good Verizon voice and data coverage, and, since there are no trees, satellite was not a problem. The electrical power and water pressure were good. It is a fairly busy park, so it is a good idea to get reservations.

This is the campground to stay for visiting Canyon de Chelly. It has a very pleasant feel and seems to be well kept up. The sites are nicely spaced. There is a dump station and water fill. We had reasonably good Verizon voice and data (3G) on extended network. If you want satellite, you will need to choose your site carefully as there are a number of cottonwood trees. There are a number of signs warning about protecting your valuables from theft, but we did not have any problem. There are also signs stating no vendors, but we did have a couple of folks come by and try to sell us items. When we declined to purchase, they readily moved on. We did hear some barking dogs in the distance but it was not a problem. The campground was relatively quiet at night.

We were passing through the Brawley area and wanted to check it out, so needed a place to stay. We chose Wiest Lake County Park as there were not many alternatives. It is about 10 miles outside of Brawley and is convenient. The lake is very small. There was no sign at the entrance to the campground. We found it later on the ground with a lot of graffiti. Almost all of the hook-up sites were taken up by what looked to be very long-term stays. Of the few available sites, some had low branches so that we could not get into the site. There are also low branches along the drive coming into the campground. At times, there were very large dogs running around off leash. Right across from the campground is a large cattle feed lot. Right next to the campground is a pasture with sheep. So, you have a lot of opportunity for not very pleasant fragrances. The electrical voltage was low, but not so low as to trip our EMS, so was OK. We had strong Verizon voice and 4G data. There was no listing of rates and no indication of how to pay. One of the residents told us that we were to pay the man that lived in the house on the premises, but we could never locate him despite knocking on the door of the house. As we were getting ready to leave, a truck with Ranger on the side passed by but seemed to ignore us. We tracked him down and he said that we could pay him. For what you get the rate of $30 per night is very high. We stayed only one night, were ready to depart, and would not stay here again.
