Nothing fancy park. Skinny entrance road between two fishing ponds. One having a swimming area. Gravel/dirt/mud roads and sites. Lots of grass, fire pits. Do have major BIG pull thru sites. Although the sewer connection is up hill. Able to get 10 channels on the antenna. Hiking trails. Easy in and out with a HDT & trailer. 60 foot long.

Date of Stay:

When the wife called she was told the campground was across from Arby's. It's not. Would have been better to have said turn left before Arbys on Highway 1 when coming off exit 147 of I-25. The office is also a hair salon. Gravel roads and gravel sites. The site we were on had no sewer, no cable TV. The Wi-Fi was worthless. Ear plug park. Road noise.

Date of Stay:

Got here and the office door was locked up. Had a name and number to call. Another RVer in front of us had called the number on the door, left a message. Did have a young man show up to check them and us in. A gal showed up later. Stayed one night. Gravel interior roads and sites. Big pull-throughs angled the way they should be. The Wi-Fi wasn't working. They knew about it. Said it would be up and running in two days. No discount. This is an ear plug park. Train and highway noise. I did like that no campfires allowed. Easy in and out with a HDT and 5th wheel trailer (60 foot combo).

Good Sam discount. Stayed one night. Gravel interior roads and sites. All pull-thrus. Angled the way they should be. Length is over 80 foot on some. Did hear lots of train air horns. Lots of channels on the Cable TV and the wifi worked okay. Easy in and out with a HDT and trailer (60 ft. combo)

Date of Stay:

Has asphalt at the front with two speed bumps then the rest of the park gravel roads and sites. Stayed in site #1 in the pull-throughs in the front. Tight sites. Close to your neighbor. No room if you want your awning out. Best of all, no campfires. Was able to sleep with the windows open at night. Has Wi-Fi, but had to ask if they had it and for the password. No rules or map of park given. Was able to get a few channels on the antenna. Very easy in and out with our HDT and trailer (60 ft. combo) There are sites farther back that are back-ins and pull-throughs. Has fire rings. The farther back the louder the interstate.

Date of Stay:

Price reflects one month and one week stay. Electric was extra at 12 cents a KWH for the month. Was not added to amount. Front office/store needs a good cleaning, inside and out. Gravel/grass sites and gravel interior roads. Some nice shade trees, but some need to be cut back. Some sites have a paved patio, others, like ours, a wood deck. Which was too high for our RV's steps. Had to park and step out onto the grass. Sewer connection only two and three fourths inch wide. Had to buy a connection to fit so I could hook up our sewer hose. Wi-Fi worked great. When we made the reservations they said they had Cable TV, but when we got there the owner had canceled it because the cable company was hard to work with. Was able to get four channels on the antenna. FOX and three channels of PBS. Some road noise during the day, mostly quiet at night, even on Labor Day weekend. Able to sleep with windows open except when people had campfires. Pretty much easy in and out with a HDT and trailer (60 ft. combo)

Date of Stay:

Price reflexes one week stay. Mostly asphalt interior roads and gravel/grass sites. Escort to site. Branches need to be cut back on interior roads and sites. Excellent cable TV and Wi-Fi. Kept windows closed and ran our bedroom A/C fan when sleeping, cut out road noise and most of the train air horns. Has recycling. A river runs through the campground and also has three ponds. Lots of ducks and geese. Watch where you step. Allows campfires. Only one vehicle allowed at each site. Although others were allowed, we weren't. Somewhat easy in and out with a HDT and trailer (60 ft. combo).

Date of Stay:

Price reflects six day stay. Roads coming into the park to the office and around the pool are paved. Most of the interior roads are also paved. Sites are gravel and good sized in length and width. Excellent Cable TV. Wi-Fi only had one day it was a little slow, otherwise no complaints. Most sites have trees, some don't. Our site was unlevel side to side two inches. Does allow campfires. Easy in and out with a HDT and trailer (60 ft. combo)

Date of Stay:

Stayed one week. Price reflexes Passport America discount. First coming into park the road is paved with potholes. Escort to site with golf cart. Interior roads are gravel and sites are either paved or gravel/grass. Site was unlevel side to side 2 ½ inches. Some sites have trees, others not. Pool had a green tint to it. Excellent cable TV, and Wi-Fi worked great. Close to Highway 301, but didn't hear it. Does allow campfires. But had windows closed and A/C(s) on due to hot and humid weather. Easy in and out with a HDT and trailer (60 ft. combo).

Date of Stay:

Pricey. Stayed one week. Asphalt interior roads, sites asphalt and concrete. pull-through site had low hanging branches. The wife watched to see if they would do any damage. After parked climbed on the roof and small branches were rubbing on the roof and A/C units. Called office was told someone would come out. After 30 minutes cut them ourselves put branches on picnic table which were removed the next day. When walking around the campground did notice some interior roads and other sites need some branches cut back. Was glad we were put on a site on the end of a row (site 9). Farther in and it would have been an adventure getting into and out of a site with our rig. Was an adventure even getting out of the site we were in. HDT and trailer (60 ft combo). Little tight, skinny interior roads. In the back of park, interior roads are gravel. Park unfortunately allows campfires. Out of three super nice cool nights was only able to have the windows open one of those nights due to smoke invading our home. Cable TV and Wi-Fi was excellent. Very quiet park, had great electric, water pressure, and sewer.

Stayed 12 nights. Passport America price. Big campground. Gravel interior roads and sites. I recommend to check their website on what you want and call for a reservation, rather than stopping in without one. We were in what they call a Super-site. Site was Gold 4. Site includes a straight pull-through, which was 80 ft long. 50 amp, water, sewer, satellite TV with a receiver and remote control and Wi-Fi. We were in the trees. Was an adventure getting into the site with our HDT and 5th wheel (60 ft. combo). Had to pull up the side of a graveled hill and turn sharply to get between a couple of trees to get into the site. Site unlevel side to side by 2 ¾ inches. The satellite TV usage was excellent. Wi-Fi worked excellent. Very quiet park except on one weekend when they have a loud band and events going on until 10:30/11 PM. Has recycling. There are campfire pits, but was to humid for us to have windows open during our stay, so no smoke smell invading our home. Has a hiking trail. Lots of things for kids to do (if you have any) pool, lake, etc. Getting out of the site and park, had to be watchful of trees on corners.

Date of Stay:

Stayed one week and two days. Lots to see and do in the area. Located right next to Hwy 30. Knew this from the reviews and Google Maps, but this campground was cheaper then others in the area so decided to try it and just run our fan on the A/C in the bedroom to cut out the highway noise when sleeping. Worked for us. Campground has asphalt roads and gravel and/or grass sites. We were in a back-in. It was angled just the way they should all be. Was able to get all our stuff on the site and off the road without any problems. No cable TV, but got 15 channels off the antenna. Has wi-fi, worked about 60% of the time. Two days/nights cool enough to have the windows open. There are fire pits but no campfires during those two days/nights so we were able to have the windows open and enjoy the nice days and nights without the nasty smell of smoke invading our home. Easy in and out with a HDT & trailer. (60 foot combo)

Date of Stay:

Stayed one week. Big campground. Lots of levels. Lots of friendly seasonals. We were in what I'd call the lower level. Had back-ins and very long (120 feet plus) pull-throughs. Gravel roads and gravel sites. Had excellent cable TV and slow Wi-Fi. Allows campfires. Had to close our windows a few nights to avoid dying of smoke inhalation. Easy in and out with a heavy duty truck and trailer (60 ft. combo).

Date of Stay:

Stayed two weeks. Just drive slow and follow the little blue and white camper signs to the campground. Gravel interior roads and sites. Our HDT had to be parked in overflow and out of my sight since the site was to small for our the truck, trailer and car. Excellent A+ wi-fi and a few channels on the TV antenna. Train horn once in a while. Allows campfires, so had to close the windows a lot during the day and night not die of smoke inhalation. This is not a party park. We were here Memorial Day weekend. The owners enforce the rules. Two thumbs up there. Easy in and out with our HDT & trailer (60 ft. combo)

Date of Stay:

Stayed 8 days/nights. West side of campground has back in sites backed to Hwy 37. Interior road has lots of speed bumps. Other side of park is somewhat quieter. Still hear traffic noise. Have planes flying over. Train air horn time to time. Park has pull thrus and some back in sites, no speed bumps. Has big rig sites, but not big rig interior roads. Interesting getting around with our HDT and trailer (60 ft combo) Paved and gravel interior roads, gravel side by side sites. Share the same water line with neighbor, so water pressure was very low at times. Have to like your neighbor since some RVers had parked pretty close to one another. As close as a couple of feet. Excellent wi-fi and cable TV. Park located next to a fire station. Sirens going off at different times of the day and night. Only had one night during our stay that we had to close our windows from campfire smoke so we would not die of smoke inhalation.
