Rate is after KOA discount. The positive is people great, clean park and good pull thru site. Now the negatives: to reach this campground you travel 7 long miles through a busy commercial area and the turn to reach this property downright dangerous. As you wait to make a left hand turn vehicles are flying down this hill and this is what you have to deal with when you are leaving. No we will not be staying here again.

Date of Stay:

This is after the KOA discount. No, it is NOT an easy on/off I-81. The 4 miles is a slow drive on a narrow country road. We will not stop here again. The people were great, grounds clean but it is too difficult to get to for an overnight stay. We had a pull thru site for a 36' motorhome with a small car in tow.

The rate is after the military discount. This KOA is not directly off I-81 and you have to travel on some narrow country roads. Going into the property is off a curve in the road and down a short steep entrance. In the campground itself there are two roads to exit the sites with one being very short and steep so you need to decide which exit your rig can handle. The people at this KOA are very helpful and the grounds are kept clean. The Wi-Fi worked great and we would stay here again. We have a 36' RV with a small tow car.

This is an easy on/off of I-75 and we would stay again.The rate is after the KOA discount. The Internet worked early on but as more rigs setup for the night the service became bogged down. We had a front row pull-through site, which is great when traveling with pets and easy to get out of. Now the downside to this front row is the bright lights from the pole lights. If you are an early to bed person and need dark then I suggest you made some type of insert for your windows to block out the light. 2007 I made some for our trip to Alaska and used them here. The lights were still on after 11PM. We have a 36' rig with a small car in tow.

This park was easy to get to from interstate. Main campground has plenty of trees for shade while the seven pull-through sites across the quiet road are mostly in the sun. There are well kept rental trailers between the recreation area and campground with a paved path that goes between the trailers down to the recreation area. Between the office and the road is a small in-ground pool and down by the lake are two fishing piers, the beach and picnic grounds. Very nice the way it is laid out. I think there are boats you can use. Not sure if you have to rent. We plan to stay here on our return trip.

I agree with the other camper who said not to bother. We have camped at several military campgrounds and have always had a good experience. This is an exception to those other campgrounds. First we called the office number numerous times on different days and got a recording, left messages for call back and nothing. 3 hours before we arrived we called the office# and finally a woman answered and said there were 5 open sites. We arrived to find one site taped off with yellow caution tape, another site with a van parked off to the side in the woods but no vehicle on the pad. We pulled out and parked in parking area in front of the office hut and husband called base security to ask if it was OK to dry camp for the night. He was told to go to a building and check in which he did but guy in office had no idea why he was told that! Husband came back and drove back into campground to look at the site where van was parked and another camper told him the owner takes his rig out and is gone for days meaning site is not paid for but discourages someone from using it. We paid and used the site for the night. The remaining sites were occupied by long term people but not all workers. 1 retiree had been there since October so 2 week rule not in-forced. Another site had a 35' motorhome, 30' tow trailer, the truck to haul the trailer and 3 cars. Another site had a portable garage frame with tarp setup in front of the trailer. I would dry camp in a Walmart parking lot before returning here.

Rate is with Good Sam 30 amp service. Easy on/off highway with little road noise. Pull-through site was level and easy to get into. There is a grass area out front to walk the pets but it is loaded with mosquitos. Good for an overnight.

This rate is with the Military Discount. Easy on/off interstate and very quiet. Sites are close together and muddy when it rains.

The campground is easy to get to and neat in appearance. Most of the full hookups are occupied by seasonal sites and some of those sites are rather uneven. Quite a few of the overnight sites are only electric and water with a dump station at the entrance/exit section. The biggest complaint is the horrid odor from the compost area. I am all for recycling but there are better areas on this property to place it other than next to sites. It smelled like an open sewer and permeated the campground.

We stayed here 3 years ago and enjoyed our time touring the various towns. This stay was shorter and we were pleased to see the campground is still neat looking with the owners hard at work mowing etc. Our site was level and near a tree that provided shade. Good for walking our dogs. We would stay here again.

The rate is for Good Sam. It is a fair distance from the highway so it is not an easy on/off for a night. The road/driveway to the campground is very narrow and steep. There are more permanent mobile homes and campers than overnight sites. The overnight sites are only electric and water. Of the overnight sites, 5 are pull through sites with the rest back ins. We woke to find out there was no water, the campground tank had run dry due to large number of people here; mostly permanents. The Huron River is typical northeast river, muddy brown. No we would not stay here again.

Date of Stay:

This is the Good Sam rate. As other reviewers noted easy on/off the highway with very little road noise. To enter the campground you must stop at the gas station/deli in front to check in. It is very easy to pull in and gas up. We had no problems extending slides and there is a large grass area to walk the pets. If traveling through this area again we would stay here.

I am not sure of the total sites since I didn't count them while we were there. The campground is not directly off the interstate. Campground has full hookups and paved sites. There are 4 sites with travel trailers that appear to be permanent. Great place to walk pets and good location to tour Lincoln and visit friends who live in or around Lincoln.

This rate is the military rate. The park is clean and has much to offer if you are traveling with children. We travel with our canine kids and walking our pets for bathroom runs was difficult since there are sites on both sides of the roads. If you have a dog that is canine unfriendly this could present a problem. With that said, it is an easy commute to old town, 30 minutes to Loveland. During our stay it was extremely hot so two days were spent at the pool which is very nice, however some of the kids made it a free for all, so we left. No idea where the adult supervision was. We would stay here again.

I will start with the positives first. The hosts are very nice people, you can see some of the Royal Gorge bridge, not far from Royal Gorge Park and Buckskin Joe, and there is some space between the sites. Negatives: The dog leash rule is not enforced by the hosts. While here a group of people camping never had their dogs on leashes. The owners saw this and at one point the smaller dog wandered up to hosts home and hosts brought the dog back asking if dog belonged to them. When told yes, NOTHING was said to them about keeping dogs on leash! Not safe for other people or dogs no matter how friendly the dogs are. WiFi was close to non-existent. Never got above low or no connection even going to pavillion close to dish. The bar across the street has a live band on the weekend and music goes until midnight. Across the street is the helipad for the helicoptor tours. On good days it doesn't stop. Unless you have your own satelittle you will not get TV reception. The sites are decent size but not level so bring blocks and it is dirt with some gravel. If you are close to the road you will definitely have road noise. The campground is for sale so I would not expect improvements.
