What a beautiful and well-maintained park. Right off the interstate with a Flying J conveniently situated for easy fill-up. We had a pull-through site and our rooftop satellite worked great, WiFi worked great, and Verizon cells had great signals. Downtown Davenport and Mississippi River and Rock Island Arsenal are within 5 miles. A lovely town and farming area. Even though we're only overnighting, this is a perfect park to do that or to stay longer. We will definitely stay here again if passing through on I-80.

Traveling on the I-80 we needed an overnight spot and this was perfect. Beautifully kept large grassy park with a lake and facilities to large gatherings, spots for long-term visitors, and a large grassy field for pull through overnighters like us. Perfect. Lots of elbow room and a friendly staff. The owners are working to improve the park and decided to not sell it to developers and keep it as a park. What a good thing. The WiFi doesn't work on site but our Verizon phone worked good and satellite TV on the roof came through so we were happy. We were charged $25 but asked that if we used our AC to come back to the office and pay another $5. That was fair. We will certainly stay here again for a night or two if traveling though the area.

This is a delightful park. Recommended on another forum when I asked for a nice RV park near FDR's Hyde Park home, this is the one folks named. Friendly staff, lovely wooded area, pet friendly, swimming pool, and a snack bar that is open all the time it seems, with delicious food at a very fair price. Great for families to stay here. The WiFi works wonderfully but our rooftop satellite wouldn't work (too many trees), but their cable TV is good so that was OK. Our VZ cells don't work here but a little drive up the road and the signal was good. This is a perfect place to stay for touring the Culinary Institute of America (great food!), Hyde Park and Val-Kill, the Vanderbilt Mansion, the Rhinebeck Aerodrome of Old Airplanes, and West Point. This Hudson River Valley area is just lovely and worth a visit. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a great park. Convenient location off I-90. Wifi works great. Rooftop satellite works great. Nice, roomy sites with turkeys roaming all around. The laundry facilities are terrific. The owners are very nice and worked hard to get us into a site where our satellite would work. After paying $35 at Devil's Tower View electric only site last nite, I can't believe we're only paying $38 for this wonderful campground. We would definitely stay here again.

I guess campgrounds in Devil's Tower are expensive. This campground has only electric, the sites have quite a downward slant and the high price all add up to a lower rating. It's very small and we're the only people camped here tonight. I think if I were visiting this area again, I would plan my night stop somewhere else, perhaps Buffalo. Way overpriced but less expensive than the KOA at the base of Devil's Tower. I don't plan to stay here again.

When we look for a campground, we want it to be pretty close to the highway exit, clean and quiet, feel safe, is fairly priced, has a site that's not cramped and one so our rooftop satellite works, and our cell (VZ) works well enough to get us online and to make calls. We don't want campgrounds with amenities or luxury features. We're usually just travelers so the features noted above are important to us. If a campground meets all these requirements, it'll get a high rating from me. That said, the TeePee gets a pretty good rating. They only reason it's not higher is that we were sandwiched in between 2 other coaches due to the fact all full hookups are clumped together. The rest of the park has spacious sites. The lady in the office is wonderful and very helpful in answering our many questions about Rapid City. The location is great for seeing the city, Mt. Rushmore, Custer State Park, and Wind Cave NP. We stayed 3 nights for $28 and got the 4th for free. We'd stay here again but I'd try for a non-full hookup so we could have a bigger site.

I agree with what everyone else has said about this beautiful park. We stopped here to take the tour of the Winnebago plant and were the only ones in the park. We could have stayed up at the Winnebago Visitor Center for free so those coming to the city for the tour might want to consider that option. Electric is all that is offered and our cell could get us online but in the roam mode so it was slow. We probably won't return to this lovely city since our reason was to take the tour but I'd recommend the park to others coming for a different reason.

What a great little park. Perfect for a couple of overnights while traveling through. It's clean and quiet with wide grassy sites. The laundry was clean and tidy and the WiFi works great. There are no amenities so this isn't the place to hang out with kids but for a short stay to visit the Corn Palace, I give it a very high rating and we definitely would return here.

One of the nicest campgrounds we've ever stayed at. The sites are large and everyone has lots of room. Easy to access and quiet. We're about 9 miles from Charleston and the only negative is the busy Highway 17 you have to drive but on the bright side, you have everything you need within an easy driving distance. We would gladly stay here again when visiting Charleston.

Great location off the interstate, friendly, and large, spacious, clean sites at a fair price. This is the first time we've stayed here traveling up I-81 through western Virginia and would stay here again. Great for an overnight and for a longer stay as well.

We love staying here when visiting the Fredericksburg area. It has a lot of things for families...a lake for fishing and a swimming pool... and hence the higher KOA price for that. It has many wooded and clear sites and is very quiet and beautiful. The WiFi is free but doesn't work real well so that dropped the rating. We've stayed here about 4 times and will continue to do so when visiting this part of Virginia.

We workamped here for July and August and I have to say it's one of the prettiest campgrounds I've ever stayed in. The upper campground, where we stayed, is Crooked River Campground and has huge sites with gorgeous trees. The campgrounds at the bottom of the canyon, Deschutes, are very near the water. Heavily used by boaters. Family campground. Watched over carefully by the Rangers and just all round wonderful place in the High Desert of Central Oregon. The only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because the campsites don't have sewer hookups but there is a dump station. Cell phones connections (Verizon) are spotty. Oregon parks are wonderful and I heartily recommend the Crooked River Campground.

We've stayed at this park several times and it's very neat and tidy. Full of rules, etc., just like everyone else has noted. Our site was the last one closest to the highway and it was extremely noisy and busy. But the one annoying new rule I noticed this time was the exclusion of malamutes including mixed breed. Having owned such a dog who was a therapy dog to boot and to think she would not have been allowed, ruffles my feathers big time. I have to add that I heard a lot of "yapping" of the little dogs. But I guess that doesn't annoy him!! We'll stay at Greer's Pine Shadows across the street next time where everyone is welcome.

We stayed here mostly on positive recommendations posted here. I must say we were a little disappointed. Our site was very uneven and we were unable to get level with our jacks. It's also quite a drive back into Cortez and for visiting nearby historic sites. Too much driving, so picking this location was a mistake for us. Next time I would choose a park closer in town. Maybe the Sundance RV Park which looked nice.

This is a beautiful grassy KOA in the heart of Gunnison. Friendly, helpful staff and immaculate restrooms and showers. Pet friendly with a new enclosed pet run. Quiet and safe and in a pastoral setting. It's close to the airport but plane noise is not a problem. There's an ethernet hookup in the office and also the WiFi works at the office. Hopefully the WiFi will be parkwide next year. Verizon cell phones work great. About the only thing (other than not having an internet connection in our coach) I'd like to see changed is to widen the space between the sites. Some of the sites position you too close to your neighbor. I'd highly recommend visiting Gunnison and staying at the KOA here. We would definitely stay again.
