We loved this park! Helpful staff, clean grounds, quiet, and a lovely park to walk in, even a covered bridge! Lack of WiFi or sewer didn't bother us since we were only here one night. Would definitely stay here again!

The good and bad here. Easy to find, park is relatively clean and seasonal folks keep their yards pretty nice. Our site was pretty level. The restrooms by the pool were very wet and slippery. Not good for elderly folks. The proximity to the highway didn't bother us much, as we are used to that when we only stay for one night, it's more of a "white noise" and better than a Walmart parking lot. HOWEVER, if you stay on a weekend (we stayed on a Friday night), be aware that there is a car racetrack right across the street. The noise was deafening, and didn't let up until midnight. Then they started up again at 8:00 am. Little to no sleep. The park folks didn't tell us about it when we called earlier in the day to reserve, nor when we checked in later in the day. The noise was so loud, it sounded like the cars were going to come right through the park. I know they can't do anything about the location, but it would have been nice to know so we could make a more educated decision about whether to stay there or not. Not happy, and will never stay there again.

By far our favorite park in the entire United States. These two make wonderful hosts. They are very accommodating: one of our cats got sick and they helped us find a vet, and extended our stay without problem. Views are to die for. The entire campground is spotlessly clean. Nice hiking trails. The road up can be a little dicey, like someone said before, beware of that last turn or you could end up in someone's front yard! Still, well worth the extra money for the location. Will be back as often as we can, maybe twice a year. Can't wait to return!!

Lovely park, easy off and on the freeway. Stayed only one night, but would definitely return. Site was nice and long, so didn't have to unhook.

Date of Stay:

Just so-so. We stayed one night and the site was ok, around a big grassy center. Lots of seasonals with decks. The site was too short to stay hooked up and it was hard to park sideways in front of our rig. Clean and lots of trees.

This is the best kept secret in the whole state of New York. They don't advertise anywhere, so it was a great surprise to find something so close to the City and the Metro North is just at the entrance to the park. The staff is pleasant and helpful. Would be a 10 if they had 50 amp. We don't care that there isn't WiFi or Cable, we bring our own sattelite and internet connection. Wonderful walking trails. We want to come back in the spring for two months!!

Just stayed one night, but we really enjoyed it. Lovely park, nice long pull through with 50 amp. Great place to walk around. The airport traffic overhead can be noisy during the day, but stops at night. Will return for a longer stay.

Kind of pricey for what you get. Trains are noisy, but the park itself is beautiful. A bit far from St. Louis, but worth the drive to walk around Forest Park. Would recommend for a short stay, or if you are going to Six Flags, which is practically around the corner.

OK place to stay. Owner was terrific, but roads are tight and hard to get into site. He has tow cars and trucks parked in front of the spaces, so turning to get into a space is almost impossible. Train can be noisy, but they seem to stop at night, so sleeping was not a problem. Close to the VA Hospital, if that is a concern. Cute little patio with a tree and privacy screen is a nice touch. Really, it is just a place to lay your head if you are sight seeing, otherwise, stay at the one on top of the mountain.

Absolutely loved it here. The deluxe site we had offered a porch swing, and the sites were terraced so that you couldn't see anyone next to you. A peaceful place - no street noise. Highly recommend.

Date of Stay:

Absolutely lovely park. We were at the "upper" campground where we were under a canopy of trees. Our site also was at an angle where you couldn't really see anyone next to you - very nice! Would recommend.

Date of Stay:

Good for an overnight as it is a little farther off the highway and no noise. Nice long sites so you don't have to unhook. Very nice office staff. Will stay here again if we are back this way. Some long term folks, but places looked very nice.

Date of Stay:

Very clean place, nice folks who run it. Good location by the highway, but a little pricy for what you get. Long enough space so we didn't have to unhook. Very few 50 amp sites, so call ahead to make sure you get one if you need it. Some long term folks, but they are in a different part of the park. Very windy! Good for an overnight, but not much more.

Have stayed here before, but this time was just over night, so they put us in a nice long space so we didn't have to unhook. We were near the long term (monthly) folks that ring the outside of the main part of the park, but the sites were nice and clean. The office staff is very nice and gives lots of information. The Utah State Fair had just opened that day right down the block and we could hear the announcers, but all was quiet by 10:00 pm. Not a great neighborhood overall, but close to the downtown area if you want to see the sights. Will stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Great location right off the highway, but not noisy. Each site has a tree and grassy area. Spaces were long enough so we didn't have to unhook. Paved roads and pads. Much better than another park we stayed at before. We will be back here again for sure.
