We stayed five nights in our 45' MH. No problem with access...paved roads were easy to navigate. No recycling though there are signs to "recycling". Dog park is probably not worthy of it's name. Walking our dogs in and around the park was not a problem. We had a good Verizon signal phone and MIFI. Satellite hooked up no problem from our site. The swimming pool is indoors and beautiful. Workout room had equipment out of service but was fairly nice (if dated) overall. The park is very convenient to Joshua Tree as well as the USMC base. Joshua Tree was the reason we were there.....beautiful park and well worth the trip.

Stayed for 31 nights arriving in March and departing second week of April. This park is ok. Mostly asphalt with just enough trees to make backing our 45' MH into spot challenging. A lot of big pickup trucks parked along/partially in the street contributed to that as well. Good Verizon connection phone and MIFI. Wifi was essentially nonexistent during normal hours. Satellite hooked up just fine. There is a former mobile home community surrounding the RV park that has been abandoned. No movement or demolition underway just yet which made walking in the area along the bay simply superb. Inside the park, doggie relief areas consisted of the small squares of dirt around the trees mentioned above or the "Pet Stop" which is too small to be effective. Security for the park is good as well with a guarded entrance and it's completely fenced. Hookups are the smaller threaded pipes for sewer.....water and electrical are toward the back of the spot but no problem to reach. Getting into the park from I5 is no problem. Folks at the desk were excellent. This park offers recycling which is very convenient and appreciated. Good place to stay in the San Diego area.

Great southern AZ Encore park. We had a monthly rate. Lot of snow birds that couldn't be more friendly. Pool is heated and beautiful. Activities were going on frequently though we did not participate. Great place to spend a few weeks and enjoy the sunshine with good folks.

Good place to stay when visiting El Paso. Very busy in the winter and they do not take reservations. Easy to find and no problem maneuvering a big rig.

Nice park. We stayed one night as we were passing through. Sites all looked fairly level. Be careful following your GPS from I20.....it might take you through some low level trees. Easy to maneuver our 45' MH to our space. Park provided an escort. Recycling was available onsite which is something we always look for. We'll stay again.

This is basically a gravel lot with hookups. Was perfect for us as we passed through for just one night.

Great RV Park. Wifi was the best we have ever experienced in two years full timing. Staff was simply superb. We were on a waterside lot that had hook ups on both sides enabling us to pull in. Several sites had that feature. Campground was immaculate. Easy access to Hilton Head but making the left onto the highway heading into town could be very difficult as there is no light and a lot (ALOT) of traffic. Be careful. We'd definitely stay again.

This is a convenient CG less than 10 miles from Old Town. Folks running the place were friendly and very helpful. We parked in the back. Rows MM-RR are pretty close together. The spots on the other side of the entrance road, rows M-R, appeared to be much larger. Other wise no complaints. Tough getting out of the campground and turning left. Very busy road and no light.

This place was a mobile home park three years ago and it appears to be slowly moving toward more and more RV spots. The pull through spots were really long.....could of parked three of my 45' MH in the one we were in. Lots of trees, squirrels, and friendly folks. We found this park very convenient to Chapel Hill.....the center for all higher education. No pool, picnic tables or any of that kind of thing but great spots and a very helpful pair of camp hosts in Valerie and Jerry. Felt a little tight maneuvering to the spot but was no problem in reality. We will go back.

Just stopped for one night while passing through WV on I64. Was OK for one night but very tight for our 45' Motorhome. I think it would be very difficult departing the space we were in if the folks on either side had not left firts. Could almost touch the slide out in the spot next to me from the bedroom. Would probably come here again for a one nighter.....

Date of Stay:

We just stopped through for an overnight. Site was a good level pull through and long enough for our 45'MH and tow vehicle. The campground is behind the hotel. There were a number of what appeared to be semi-permanent folks there but all on the edges of the park. Good place for a quick overnight.

Date of Stay:

A very nice park that we really enjoyed. Was closest place we could find to Duluth that could take a 45' MH. The grounds are pretty and they keep several miles of trails mowed in the back which is fantastic for dawg walking and birding. Folks are very nice as well. We will come back to Ogstons. They accept only cash or a check as they do not accept credit cards.

The best KOA we have stayed in since we started full timing over a year ago. VERY close (2.5Miles?) to entrance to Glacier. The KOA is beautiful, great spaces. The two swimming pools, one for family and one for adults were very nice with dual hot tubs at the adult pool. The landscaping of this place would be the envy of most any gardener. Great walking around the grounds. They offer good recycling at the park which was a nice service. We will definitely stay here again.

Great park. Very convenient to Kalispell and of course the Lake! Easy to maneuver. If traveling from the North on HWY 93 the entrance come up on you quickly as you go down the hill into Lakeside. You'll turn BEFORE the RV sign on the right.

Nice park. Located about 7 miles N of Helena. Young man at check in wasn't particularly helpful or friendly. Nice walking around the park and along the canal on the East side. Good for dogs. Dog run is not fenced. Be careful if you want to receive your mail. We tried to pick up on Saturday after asking if THEY picked up on Saturday. Guy at the desk (same young man as check in) was brusk saying he was working until 8pm and wouldn't be picking up the mail that day. Fortunately we weren't leaving until the following Monday. Good, clean park: grass looked great in July!!
