The nightly charge listed is calculate on a monthly rate. After staying here for a few years, we were surprised of all the things that had changed. The monthly cost for staying was raised. They added the maximum amount of surcharge on the electric which brought the total to 19.9 cents/ kilowatt. The month of December, people were paying over $300 for their electric. Poor maintenance of the pools - they were slightly green and you couldn't see clearly to the bottom. The huge area for storage is now off limits to dogs. The cook and his wife are no longer there. Now, the meals are not very good and all the prices had been raised. Pickleballs were not provided like before. The lights on two pickleball courts didn't work the time we were there. The management had been rude or abusive to people camping there. Our friend who left the park was informed he couldn't return to play pickleball unless he paid $100 activity charge. This man had taught pickleball lessons free of charge for the park for several years. People that had previously stayed at the park were told by management that they couldn't return to visit. Several people who had stayed at the park for years have left because of issues with management and all the changes. We will no longer stay at this park.

Very nice campground with several sites right on the lake. Hiking trails through the reservoir. Because we were there mid-week in October, we pretty much had the whole campground to ourselves. It can be full during the weekend. You do have to pay a $7/day usage for the county park. Some of the full hookups when not very level. The price reflects electric only with off season discount. Estes Park and Rocky National Park is only 35 miles away. If in the area, we will definitely use this campground again.

Park is located southwest of Denver. Many paved trails throughout the park. Sites are large, and concrete pads for your RV is really nice. Onsite laundry is a plus. We camped in D Loop which is full hookups and is the newest addition to the campground. You have to pay $8/day for entry. Since the yearly pass is $70 and we will be using multiple state parks as we travel through the state, we opted for that option. We definitely will be back to this campground.

The price is water/electric with Good Sam discount. Also, if you stay 6 nights, the 7th night is free. This is one of the best campgrounds we have stayed at. The sites are huge and very well maintained. Concrete pads for parking the motorhome with a small patio attached. Wonderful view of Scott's Bluff National Monument. The campground is owned by the city and they have really taken the time to plan this campground out. If we are in Western Nebraska again, we will definitely stay here again.

Price reflects water and electric only. This campground is very dusty but you can see Scottsbluff right out your back door. The full hookup sites are larger. But the row of water/electric are side by side, which is weird and not big enough for a large slide. Fortunately, we didn't have neighbors, so that wasn't an issue. The prices have been raised, so their website doesn't reflect the change.

We only stayed one night. The campground is dusty and there seemed to be no camp host, but it's very shady and has water spigots throughout the campground. Several sites right on the lake. Lake is large and seems nice.

Price reflects Iowa camping coupon. This park has great hiking. The lower part of the park road is currently closed because of a flash flood last year. They are rebuilding the bridge and plan on cleaning up the picnic area. The road is scenic because you can drive through the Pea Creek in several areas. They hope to have the park back to normal next year. The campground is several loops with pull-through and back-in sites. The sites are large and mostly are surrounded by woods. Ames is approximate 11 miles away for services. We will definitely will be back.

Price reflects Iowa camping coupon price. We stayed 12 days. We love this campground especially loop 1, which are all pull-through sites and all are very large. There is a beach for swimming and good fishing. This campground was very busy on the weekends, but was very quiet during the week.

Our site was big, but not all sites are. There are a lot of seasonal campers, but their sites are clean. It's right on the river and off the beaten path, so it's quiet and the Peoria skyline at night is nice. Because of the cheap monthly rate and that we come back to the area every year, we will definitely be back.

Spent 2 months here. Monthly rate is $450. Close to grocery store, many restaurants and other services. There are no bathrooms or showers. On a busy road, so it can be noisy. No hiking, but Detweiller Park and Forest Park Nature Center are close by and have good hiking. Managers are very nice and helpful. No wireless, but if you go up to the nearby strip mall there are some free ones.

Great campground. We camped at site 196, which is a pull through site. The site is at the end of one of the roads, so it was very quiet. The campsites are wide and shady. The bathhouse was very nice and clean. There are easy to moderate hiking trails in the campground area. The more difficult trails are on the south side of the park. I would highly recommend this campground for couples and families.
