This is a large level grass field with a few trees here and there. Good voltage, level sites, very helpful, hardworking hosts. Nothing fancy (as reflected in the low price), but well maintained and quiet. Nothing here for kids. Restrooms are outhouses, so it is best to be self-contained. Verizon signal is strong. This worked very well for us during our visit to Traverse City over the 4th of July camping madness weekend. : ) We would return. Current weekly rate is $125.

I would love to give this place a higher rating, because there is so much about it that is great: spacious sites, wonderful owners, fabulous views, lightening fast Verizon phone and aircard service. The downside? We are here in mid-June, with temperatures in the upper 80's and the park WAY less than 1/3 full. We have a 50 amp utility box, but the voltage is so low (with those of us who are here trying to use our A/C) that our electrical management system keeps shutting down our electricity as the voltage falls below 104. Of course, we could bypass the EMS box, but voltage that low is damaging to all appliances. We'd return in cooler weather, but can't recommend this park when it is hot.

After one night, we were so pleased that we visited the office and added two nights to our stay (for a total of 8 nights). Very pleasant park with large sites and good utilities. Verizon service (phones and aircard) works, though the signal is weak. Makes an excellent base camp for the many and varied sights and activities in the Laurel Highlands area of PA. Also, summertime weather is a little cooler here, since the elevation is around 2,000 ft. Rate shown is Passport America rate, good except Fri. and Sat.

We are 60+ year old fulltimers, so our campground needs are much different than those of families. This campground suits our needs VERY well. We reserved a 50 amp FHU site, most of which are well separated from the area used by semi-permanent workers, fairly roomy and level, reasonably quiet. Good water pressure and electricity. No obstacles for roof mounted satellite dish. More than a dozen channels on antenna, including PBS. Wi-Fi available at site. Good Verizon service. Great walking on trails along the adjacent river. Good neighborhood (Germantown) with excellent restaurants and stores of all kinds very nearby. Close to cheap golf ($11 for seniors at Galloway). Daily on-site Farmer's Market in summer. NOAA weather radar on site, with tornado shelter. Roads are potholed gravel, sites are gravel. Not so good as a vacation spot, perhaps - but an excellent location for fulltimers visiting Memphis.

Though this campground is "big-rig accessible", the number or sites that can accommodate big rigs is very small (maybe six?). We camped here in a 38' MH, and watched many larger rigs circle the park and head back out, though it was mid-week. Sites are mostly suitable for tents, and for rigs around 30' or less; perhaps half a dozen can accommodate larger rigs. The campground is a small part of this large state park, which has lots of family-type activities, including a swimming pool, soccer fields, stables, and a golf course. It's quite pretty.

A mix of older mobile homes and RV spaces, many of the park's residents are semi-permanent, either working in the area or here for treatment at Loma Linda Hospital or the big VA Hospital, both 3 miles away. This is a small, urban park, with tight spaces and no "activities" - but if you need to be in this area, we recommend it. The owners make this an outstanding park given the limitations. They are on top of every detail and go out of their way to accommodate your needs. We are grateful to have found this well-run park when health matters dictated an extended stay.

Average park. The rate we paid was for a water and 50 amp electric site, not a FHU, with a 15% Escapees discount. Parking is on gravel and dirt, with some grass between spaces. As mentioned by prior reviewer, the pool was empty. Easy access from the interstate means enough traffic noise that we kept the windows closed at night. Friendly staff. Okay for an overnight.

Date of Stay:

This park is a couple notches above average. Long, level sites on gravel with grass and covered picnic tables in a quiet residential area... but no amenities of the kind. After reading prior comments, I suspect the ownership has changed - we were checked in by a young (12?) girl and her mother. The price has gone up substantially since what was quoted by prior campers, and seemed out of line for the facility to us. We would not be likely to stay again due to the high nightly rate.

Date of Stay:

Nice oasis in an arid part of Nevada. There are two developed campgrounds here (no hookups), each with around 22 campsites. Lower campground is on the Humboldt River with shade trees; upper campground in at the boat launch with less privacy and no shade. Though the address is in Lovelock, the recreation area is between Lovelock and Winnemucca. Highly recommended for a relaxing overnight stop. No cell service.

Date of Stay:

This tightly-managed park is visually appealing, with long, level, reasonably wide sites. Very nice common areas, both outdoors and indoors. Wi-Fi at your site costs extra (we had great reception on our Verizon aircard), but is free in the TV lounge. Our rating would be higher if the sites had cable TV and picnic tables. Noise from Hwy 89 is somewhat annoying. We don't have a dog, but the dog walk area and fenced off-leash area seem like useful amenities. We will return when we are in the area again.

If we arrived at this campground expecting a “10”, we would have been disappointed. This is an intelligently designed, brand new park with no frills. The sites are level and are unusually long, making it easy to pull in without unhooking a towed vehicle. Site separation is very good. Lighting is low, on each utility box. The road and site paving is poor quality; we saw one big rig with it’s back jacks buried in the blacktop. Easy on-off access to I-40, yet far enough away to muffle traffic noise. Once the landscaping matures, I would rate this park higher if they add shade armadas and picnic tables at each site, minimal amenities for a “10” in my mind. No pool at the RV park, through RV guests can use the pool at the casino hotel. The current fee is $26/night. We were given 2 coupons worth $5 each. IF you are willing to spend at least 20 minutes, give up personal information (phone number and driver’s license info) and walk through the smoky casino, you can redeem your coupons and bring your cost down to $16.

Our site was huge, with wonderful landscaping, shade trees, and a concrete pad with ramada and picnic table - even our own trash can. The park is beautifully maintained and the museum interesting. The history in the area (Pancho Villa's raid on Columbus and the resulting U.S. expedition into Mexico) is fascinating. This lovely, quiet park makes a great place to get away and relax.

This new park is yet to be completed. Sites are roomy, level, with a (large) gravel base. Roads are paved, an advantage when the wind blows. Views are expansive and there are extensive, well-marked hiking trails out the back of the park into Tucson Mountain Park. As this is the high season in Tucson, PA rates are not honored now, but daily ($20) and monthly $395 to $440, I think, including electric) rates are competitive. A laundry room is available, but lack of restrooms/showers and pool may be an issue for other campers. This will be a lovely desert park when it is complete and the plantings mature.

We heard about this park online from the prior reviewer and visited it a week later. We're GLAD we did! Quiet, green oasis near John Day Fossil Beds N.M. Gravel sites are long and fairly level, surrounded by thick grass and lovely, large trees. Very friendly staff. 6 60' long gravel back ins and 1 long FHU site on grass near the restrooms. 2 full, unisex, baths. Small laundry with huge commercial washers/dryers. Cottages available for rent. The only reason this is a 9 instead of a 10: no cell phone service, no WiFi for internet. That won't matter to some!

This park has been accurately described by other reviewers this month. Nicely landscaped and maintained. Friendly staff. We were assigned a long, level pullthru. Some road noise, but not more than usual in an urban environment. We were very impressed with how the staff in the office, dealt with a problem in the park today, an apparently drunk, very offensive, belligerent visitor. The staff immediately and calmly handled the situation. We have stayed in other parks where this would not have been handled, or not handled well. I am sure we will stay here again when visiting Eugene.
