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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Date of Stay:

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

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

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