Rate reflects VKR discount for a pull-through, FHU site. On a positive note, the cable worked, electric was good, check-in staff were friendly. Very expensive for what it is. Very tight for a large motorhome. We are a big rig towing and were there for an overnight. I asked to make sure we wouldn't need to unhook and were assured we had "a very long site". The escort promptly lead us to make a immediate sharp right turn, despite the fact that we were parked against a curb to our right and a fence at the curve. We couldn't make the turn and had to unhook at a tight angle - which appeared to humor the staff since they were laughing while we unhooked. The area our site was in appeared to be nearly all residents/seasonals. The "very long site" may have measured long, but the functionally level section in the middle was barely adequate for a 40' motorhome and the toad would have stuck out in the road had we left it connected. It would not have been possible to pull out of the site with the toad attached due to the uphill right turn you had to make out of the site and the tight turns to get back to the exit. Tree branches in this area also need to be trimmed overhead. WiFi was unusable. We do not recommend this campground if you are a large motorhome.

We have stayed at Parkers Crossroads 5 times now, and while we don't usually re-review a campground unless there is a big change, we are making an exception because of the outstanding customer service we received on our most recent visit. The campground continues to be improved; the most recent additions are concrete landing areas and large decks for the upper pull through sites. No more pulling out the portable step for the motorhome entry door. Site escort is one of the most considerate we have encountered. Escort is at a careful speed through the campground. Utilities are pointed out and the escort stays to make sure you are comfortable with them. The view from the upper sites is very nice, lots of grass to walk the dogs, excellent power and water pressure. The campground guide has good detail on the local food and fuel options, including notes about where to find big-rig-friendly truck pumps. Now the reason for this re-review. We somehow managed to forget our water filter and adjustable water pressure regulator when we pulled out, and didn't discover they were missing until hours later. We called the campground to see if they could find the parts and ship them to us at our cost. 3 days later we had our filter and regulator, well packed and shipped with the only cost being the actual shipping charges. We offered to pay for packaging/handling as well since it was our mistake, but they politely refused to charge anything additional. It may seem like a small thing, but for us it was outstanding customer service. We will definitely stay here in the future.

Overall, a very nice park. Utilities worked very well, except the wifi which didn't seem to have an actual Internet connection. The campground manager was very helpful upon our arrival/check-in and also later when we had some questions. There isn't a lot to do immediately in the area, even groceries are a bit of a drive, but it is pretty much centrally located to both Buffalo and Rochester. The big attraction is the golf course, which is well maintained, very scenic, very friendly and helpful staff, and very affordable. We enjoyed our few days there and will return for a longer visit/more golf next time.

Rate reflects a "Hot Deal" that was running for our stay. We stayed at this park a few years ago and loved it, so we were looking forward to returning. It's a little further out than other parks in the Freeport area, but the staff is great and the park is generally laid back and relaxing. We ran into a couple of issues this time which cause the lower rating. Electric was OK during the week (117 V) but voltage dropped to marginal levels (112 V on one leg, 110 V on the other of 50 amp service) on weekends when it was more crowded. Water pressure was much lower than last time we visited; we ended up running off our tank/pump for showers. WiFi throughput was poor so we gave up and used our Verizon data. Unlike the experience of the person who stayed in May, we found the entrance road to be in sore need of repair. It was quite rutted when we arrived and there were many low hanging branches for our 11'4" motorhome to dodge. We were there for a long enough stay (and nice enough weather) that someone could have done a little grading, but things were even worse when we left. On exiting from Big Skye Lane (dirt) onto the main road, the height difference due to the ruts caused our front end to bottom out on the pavement and we suffered a little over $1000 in damage to our entry step and door. We contacted the KOA to make them aware we'd had damage and the need to repair the entry road (not asking for compensation or anything like that) and we weren't even afforded the courtesy of an acknowledgement, never mind an apology. We will stay elsewhere next time.

This is one of the few options in the area, and the price takes advantage of it. The wooded sites are spacious and you don't have your neighbor right on top of you. They're also quite level. If you are a family with kids and your camping unit is a travel trailer, you'll have a great time with all the activities and kid-centric amenities. If you're just adults looking for a campground with good utilities and good site design, you'll be very frustrated, even more so if you have a larger rig. While the campground impresses with all sorts of things to keep you busy, it disappoints when it comes to the actual site. We stayed here midweek and had low voltage problems on what was a 50 amp site. Could not run anything of significance on one leg of the power since it was only 108V with nothing running. Could not run more than one appliance at a time on the other leg without our EMS shutting down for low voltage. Cable didn't work. OTA TV signal was too weak and trees blocked satellite. WiFi was very weak the first day then stopped working for the rest of the stay. The shade is nice (especially since we couldn't run our A/C) but some serious pruning needs to be done of the underbrush up to about 12 ft. high since it encroaches on the roads and sites and makes getting into and out of your site very difficult. Roads are very tight and it can be nearly impossible to get out of your site if you have neighbors across the way. We would not recommend bringing anything larger than a 40' motorhome here and if you're towing, unhook your car at the camp store. Price includes a $5/night "resort fee" which covers a handful of things and is necessary for WiFi and using the dog facility. Why not just admit that the site fee is higher than they advertise and not have these "add ons"? We were only here to visit family in the area and will not use this park again unless we have to.

Good power, pull through sites that are great for overnighting. Very convenient to Flying J for diesel. Very close to the I-81 yet the hill blocks a lot of the noise. Good cable, power, and water. Wi-Fi was slow. Lot of grass to walk the dogs. We were in the more open sites for satellite, others have more trees. We would stay here again if we needed to overnight in the area.

Date of Stay:

Very convenient to I-81, a good overnight spot but not a destination park. Layout was a little unusual in that it seems to be random spots around a family/business compound. That aspect does make it feel secure. Good power, good Wi-Fi, nice grass areas to walk the dogs. A fair amount of road noise. Price seems a little high for an overnight stopping spot but it's better than other options in the area. No trash bins or dumpster that we could find, so we had to take our pet pick up bags with us.

This is definitely the place to stay in Crossville if you want a peaceful, adult park. Very nice owners, very nice campers. Sites on pond/lake back up to it. Good size sites with concrete patios, wrought iron tables and chairs, and canopied swing/glider seats were nice. Wi-Fi speed was just "ok", sometimes not great. The one oddity is the lack of trash receptacles anywhere, except 3 garbage cans behind the bath house. No dumpster on the way out, and no close by cans for the pet pick-up bags. With the peacefulness and friendly people we would stay here again.

It had been many years since we last stayed at Parkers Crossroads and our last experience was creepy. After a friend had stayed here recently, we decided to try it again and were very glad we did! The concrete pads are very level, good power, nice grass to walk the dogs. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The upper sites could use a little more landscaping but they're new so as time goes on it will likely grow in. Note that our GPS thought the location was about 1/2 mile further north on 22, so watch carefully for the campground signs. We would stay here again when needing a campground between Memphis and Nashville.

Our second stay at this campground, and unfortunately we have to rate it lower this time around. We love the level, pull-through sites, good water pressure, good WiFi, and large, grassy dog run. We knew about the train, and were glad for a site not too close to it. The unfortunate issue is that we did not get much rest at night because our surge protector over/under voltage sensor tripped several times between midnight and 1 AM. No storms or anything like that. We finally shut off power to the RV, not knowing what was going on, and tried to sleep with the windows open (unsuccessfully, due to the train). Power levels read OK during the day, but something was happening at night.

This was an unexpected find for a municipal (county) park! We stayed in the full hookup section, which offered fairly level sites, excellent WiFi, and a quiet setting. Lots of activity options available: boat and bike rentals, snack bar, lake, etc. The staff (especially maintenance) were very friendly. The treed FHU back in sites offer morning shade but you will encounter pine sap issues. The pull-through and lower numbered FHU back ins do not have this issue, and the lower numbers will have a little late afternoon shade. The park is gated access-only, and park ranger patrol is visible. The only downsides are rather high fees for pull-throughs (an extra $10/night) and low water pressure (we filled and ran off our tank while we were here). If staying only one night, the park pass cost of $3/day or $5/year could be off-putting, but for longer stays seems well worth it for the value of the Hamilton County parks and their recreation opportunities. We will absolutely return.

The largest park we've stayed in, in terms of the number of sites. Sites on the eastern portion of the park are nice and wide, those on the western side, especially the gravel sites, are tighter and feel more congested. The park is very busy in the summer months. We saw new arrivals pulling in within an hour of a site being vacated. Very good water and electric, loved the very level concrete super sites. Agree with a previous poster that at this price, WiFi should be included. Good Verizon signal if you use an air card or tether, which we did. We were very pleased that we were allowed to wash the RV (it's even mentioned in the rules that you can). The park is very well maintained and staff are constantly on the move collecting trash bags, mowing, weeding, etc. We were disappointed that there was only one off-leash/fenced dog walk area for the entire park. It's located at the southern edge of the park in the western section so it's not convenient for most of the park. There aren't many open grass areas beyond your site to walk your dog as an alternative. We didn't hear too much road noise at night, but the train immediately to the south was hard to miss at times. Overall a very nice park.

The positives for this park are the convenience to 2 interstates, level sites with good pea gravel, nice landscaping, and good power. It's also very family/children-centric with lots of activities and things to do for the kids. The young man who escorted us to our site was one of the best escorts we've had. He didn't drive too fast and was very clear with his hand signals. Downsides are the narrow sites and tight roads, especially for larger rigs. The office staff also recommended an exit route which was physically impossible for our coach (fortunately, we walked the route first, and realized we wouldn't be able to make the turn suggested, even with our tow disconnected). WiFi went from sporadic to non-existant after hours and was too slow to be usable when the campground was full. The pet walk was tiny. An OK overnight during the week, great for families any time, we would not recommend for a motorhome over 40 feet, especially if towing and you don't want to disconnect.

Nice park. Friendly host. Sites are a little close together, but our neighbors were very friendly. Pet friendly - they provide "mutt mitt" bags at the pet walk area. The road to the park is a local one with no shoulders so take it easy and you'll be fine. Good for an overnight; we would probably stay here again if in the area.

Date of Stay:

Very friendly owner and very convenient for an overnight stop. Despite being close to the interstate, we had no noticeable noise. We will stay here again.
