Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park), Ashland, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:      

We called the office about availability - the lady said: "we are really very wide open". So we arrived about noon on a Thursday. We learned they "lady" in the office really doesn't know what is available. The host informed us, that his estimation was: somewhere in the park, 4 sites were unoccupied. He said all the sites would accommodate our 43' motorhome. So we drove around, 2 of the 4 available sites, were too short, 3 of the 4 had only 30 amp. We ended up on the one double site. Luckily we had an extension cord to make our electrical connection. So we talked with our neighbors a couple sites away and learned they were leaving in the morning. So we made plans to move in the morning. Our new site was much better, 50 amp and water. None of the sites have sewer hook ups. Be aware that adjacent to the RV Park is a large Superfund hazardous clean up site, which is active 7 days week and on a few days put off fumes that were rather nasty smelling. The clean up will likely be active for a couple more years. It blocks the Lakeside Walking path, and forces a detour into the town and back to maneuver around the Hazardous cleanup. Certainly not a plus. We camped at Ashland City RV Park (Kreher Park) in a Motorhome.

Lakehead Boat Basin, Duluth, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $40.00
Overall Rating:      

This RV Park is all about location. We enjoyed our stay because there are so many interesting and enjoyable places within walking distance of the RV park. It was difficult to get reservations, as the RV Park is very popular. We arrived early afternoon, went into the Marina office across the street to register. We had full hookups & a back in site. Be aware that Duluth has numerous taxes targeted at travels. Sales Tax = 7.8750% Hotel Tax = 3% Sales Tax City = .5% adding about $5 per night to our rate. They are in the process of building a Fairfield Inn on the Marina property which will certainly make the area more congested once it opens (currently projected to open early in 2018). The current construction made the marina noisy and caused delays for those wish to enter or exit as the construction often blocked the single access driveway. Glad we visited. We camped at Lakehead Boat Basin in a Motorhome.

Vermilion Sunsets RV Park, Cook, Minnesota

Date of Stay: July, 2017 - $23.00
Overall Rating:      

My search for a camp site large enough for our 43' MH and with full hookups taught me one thing: full hook up campgrounds in this part of Minnesota are rather rare. And those you do find are a bit pricey. Our goal was to visit the Vince Shute Wildlife Sanctuary and this campground was close enough. It was about 30 minutes to the Sanctuary. We arrived while it was raining, went to the Marina next door to register. They told us to select any available site. Half the sites were unoccupied, we found one large enough and just level enough to accommodate our coach. Hookups were fine, it was very quiet. Grounds could have been better maintained, however, they had about 7 days of rain when we arrived so that probably impacted their mowing schedule. We'd stay here again. We camped at Vermilion Sunsets RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice quiet campground. Newly built Restrooms and showers. Free firewood. Excellent host. Excellent Verizon cell service. No Dish Satelite for us due to the trees on most sites. 40' x 20' concrete pads on all sites. We camped at DeParcq Woods (Military FamCamp) in a Motorhome.

They have a nice PX on the post, however, it is closed on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Make a visit to the Military Museum, $5 well spent.

Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park, Osceola, Iowa

Date of Stay: June, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Very convenient to I35. All pull-through FHU sites. Surprisingly not a noisy as I thought it would be. It seems to be mostly self-service, pick your site, drop your payment in the box. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Leake County Water Park, Lena, Mississippi

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:      

Very nice campground, no permanent residents, however, several that appeared to be long-term folks. Nicely wooded location, pool, playground, riverfront facility with boat dock and a rather large fish cleaning station. There were many open, all concrete pad sites when we arrived and it's basically a self-service arrangement. Pick your site, and if the management doesn't come visit and collect the rent during your visit, you are asked to drop it in the drop box at the office. We found a site with SW DISH satellite access, and we had AT&T 4GLTE at about 6MB. We arrived early afternoon on Friday, by 1900hrs that evening the campground had filled up with weekenders and watercraft. However, other than a gigantic cloud of smoke from all the campfires, everyone was well-behaved and relatively quiet and respectful, even the kids, which seemed to be having a great time. We'd stay here again. We camped at Leake County Water Park in a Motorhome.

Bring groceries and charcoal. Things to do? Visit the pool or playground, take your boat down the river, relax, otherwise, not much else in the immediate area. We stayed here when driving the Natchez Trace Parkway.

Grand Gulf Military Monument Park, Port Gibson, Mississippi

Date of Stay: May, 2017 - $25.00
Overall Rating:      

We arrived as a storm was brewing and the Operations Manager, Bud came to our rig and said just go get set up in any available site, and come to the office whenever it's convenient. So we selected the lower campground, site 11. We very much enjoyed our stay. We visited the museum, the park displays, and the other areas near the river. We were able to receive DISH satellite, and Verizon 4GLTE at about 3mb, which was acceptable. We camped at Grand Gulf Military Monument Park in a Motorhome.
