Wow, this place was excellent. Gravel road off of hwy M-35, paved around the campground loop. Huge grassy sites that they allow you to park on in any way you choose. Ours was across the road from the playground and beach with a beautiful view of Lake Michigan. Very quiet, peaceful place to be. Mostly large travel trailers were there when we were also. Only 20 minutes south of Escanaba, lots of good places to eat in Esky. If there were any issues it was the mosquitoes, but that's par for the course in that area, especially with their rainy spring.

I reviewed this campground about 5 years ago so this is really just an update. It's still an excellent place. The owners continue to put money back into it. The pool and pool deck was gutted last year and re-poured so its really a new pool. WiFi is now available throughout the park, although you have to re-authenticate every 30 minutes. And just to update the previous post, they may not have realized that you can leave your trash by the end of the site and they will pick it up, although we find it a nice walk to just dump it ourselves.

We were looking for a place to camp in the Dells area on fairly short notice. This is a decent place to camp for a few days, and you can't beat the price for full hookups. It's quiet and the owners are very friendly and accommodating. Sites are fairly large, not like a state park, but enough so you don't feel like the neighbor is looming over you. But there are no privacy barriers between sites. Wi-Fi was pretty good, strong signal and reasonable speed. Country Roads caters to big rigs and as such, the bathrooms and showers are not on par with newer RV parks, nor did they appear to be cleaned daily, even though a lot of people seemed to be using them. However, the showers are free, and the water is hot. While the park is "adult oriented", discouraging families with children, there were some kids there with their grand parents, and at least 2 families with teens. But it was quiet and no kids were running around screaming. Kudos to the adults who brought the kids! We'll come to Country Roads for certain! Stay away from the Wal-Mart across the street! Its a zoo and takes forever to check out!

Excellent location; lots to do in Manitowoc and Two Rivers. Very clean place. Showers were spotless, but are only open from 7:00am to mid-night. They are in the pool room so are only accessible during pool hours. The WI-FI is about the best I have ever encountered in an RV park. Good signal and very fast. This is probably not the kind of place most people would want to stay at for more than a few days. They pack you in like sardines. If your neighbor has a pull out, your awning will only be a few inches from their unit. Also, depending on where your door is, you have to watch so you don't trip on the hookups for the next unit over. Overall not a bad place if you can't get into Point Beach State Forest.

We usually go to state parks. We were only able to make reservations a few weeks before this trip, so the state park was booked. We thought we'd give Egg Harbor Campground a try. When this was still Camp-Tel, it looked pretty seedy from the road. The new owners have done wonders with the place and now it looks very inviting. One shower building is new, and the other, while looking like it's out of the '60s, is spotless and in good repair. The owners and employees are friendly and very helpful. Not only do they guide you to your site, they deliver fire wood! Many of the sites are close together. However, a lot of them have stone "fences" of about a foot high showing clearly where the border of the site is. This, along with the stone border around the fire pits gave the campground a more rustic feel. Even though our neighbor's trailer was only a few feet from us, we didn't feel cramped for room because the site was plenty large. If they can, they try to put your unit into a site that matches its size. There is also a campground rule that is in bold type asking people not to cut through the sites of others! That was refreshing to see. Even with all of the kids there on the holiday weekend, it got quiet by 10:00 PM or so. This place is about as close to a state park as any private campground gets. This appears to have been a KOA at one time. The main building is the old KOA "A Frame" style, and there are a number of old A-Frame "Kamping Kabins" still in use. The new owners also added a number of log cabins with refrigerators and microwaves. There a number of seasonal sites I'd give it a 10 but for a few small things. WI-Fi is only available in the TV room, not the entire campground. Not a huge deal, but it would have been nice to stay at our trailer when it was raining. My wife was mildly annoyed that the laundry room was locked at 7:00 am on Labor Day. We ended up driving somewhere to get some wash done. Later in the week when only a few people were still there, it was open 24 hours. I think they locked it to keep kids out on busy weekends. I'm not lowering my rating due to this one, but unfortunately, they don't have cable TV available at the sites. That’s not their fault, the nearby town of Egg Harbor doesn't have cable available yet. They do have satellite TV available in the TV room. All in all, a highly recommended campground.

Though the sites here are a bit tight, this place was really amazing. It's very neat and clean. They cater to the big rigs but there were a few pop-up trailers and of course our little 17ft hybrid trailer. The owners treat everyone wonderfully and I was amazed to see that he guides nearly everyone into their sites. As mentioned, they have an agreement with the marina to share showers and laundry facilities. The marina does a great job maintaining these. The laundry was one of the best ones we used on our 6k mile trip across the west. There's not much to Moss Landing but if you are here you must stop at Phil's Fish Market for dinner and Phil's Snack Shack for breakfast.

This is a pretty decent place to stay when visting Yosemite. The owners are friendly and accommodating. We had a sewer connect that backflowed when I opened the cap and even though they got someone to fix it right away, they let us move as we didn't want to deal with the smell that was lingering. One drawback is the small "opposing" sites. Every other rig has to pull in forward because hook ups are shared by every two sites. What this means is that you have to face your neighbor's door and patio area, thus limiting privacy. There is a new toilet building that is kept very clean. In fact all their facilities are very clean. The shower building is a bit outdated and could use an overhual. A new feature is free Wi-Fi. The laundry facilities left something to be desired and the ones in town are not much better. Also, many of the businesses in town couldn't care less if you are here putting money into the local economy.

This RV park is one of the best. The sites are wide with packed gravel drives. The roads are asphalt paved. The entire place is spotless and the staff is friendly and helpful. They also have excellent laundry facilities. I can't add too much to the other reviews beyond this. One thing that would make this place nearly perfect would be an indoor pool & whirlpool. We will be going back there the next time we visit Yellowstone NP.

If you're looking for standard RV park facilities, this is not the place for you. As everyone else mentioned it's just a parking lot with hookups. That said, KOA has done a great job with how they handle things here. The staff was friendly and helpful and the store/office stays open untill 11pm. The pool/whirlpool is well maintained as are the shower buildings and laundry. We have a hybrid trailer and did not feel uncomfortable opening our vinyl bunk ends and leaving the trailer. It was really nice to be right on the strip. Cable TV would have been nice. We had trouble getting clear reception on local channels. We would stay there again if we go back to Vegas.

We stopped here for an overnighter on our way to Las Vegas. It was great to have use of a whirlpool after 29hrs of being on the road. Many RV parks do not have pools/whirlpools. Monument is squeeky clean and has a excellent shower building. They also have a great view of the Colorado National Monument and are across the street from the Colorado River State Park. The owner (I think he was) went out of his way to get our cable TV hooked up. Our site did not have the connector for some reason. He ran a splitter of the adjoining site for us. The draw backs were small sites (which for an overnighter we didn't care) and that the seasonals just sort of stared at us for the longest time while were setting up. Nothing like having the new neighbors welcome you.
