This is a gem in the making. New owners. We were greeted with friendly smiles. Very clean restrooms/showers. Heavily treed which have been trimmed, so there is no problem. Being a family friendly park is highly stressed. Has a catch and release lake. Would definitely stay here again.

Bad power. The owner told me the voltage throughout the park was bad. At our site, it dropped to 95v where it stayed throughout the day. Others were also having problems. Management continued to rent to new arrivals which added to the problem. We ended up turning all the power off at the box. Manage would not offer a partial refund as the owner told me he was not going to suffer a loss of money due to bad power. Cash only-no checks or credit cards. Definitely will not return.

Very friendly staff. Excellent campground. Also has a nice laundry. Be certain to visit the nearby museum: Mountain Home Place.

Because the park recently discovered a felon in the park, they now require mobile home buyers and RVers staying a month at the monthly rate to pay $60/couple, in cash, and complete a four page financial application. Some of the information required is your social security number, photo copy of drivers license, mortgage history, employment history including current source and amount of income, bank and credit card account numbers, plus information on ALL vehicles, boats, etc you own. It goes on. Management could not assure that this information would be protected. Interestingly, I was told I could stay as long as I wish at the daily rate and not complete the application. That makes the felon argument sound a little absurd. I would never stay here.

Excellent campground, one of the very best Passport America campgrounds. Paved sites, clean restrooms with showers, and great laundry facilities. It is away from the Interstate, but close enough for easy drive to shopping. We took I-80 exit #46 for fuel at one of the two big truck stops there and found fuel 20 cents a gallon cheaper less than a mile away on Highway 50 Alt. on way to campground. This might not always be the case, but worth checking out. Have stayed here before and it never disappoints.

A great park for seeing the local sights. Centrally located and pretty quiet for being right in the middle of a major city. Camping area brightly lit with security lights at night. You park and call security to pay. We enjoyed walking around the huge campgrounds, watching kids at the Mini Indy race course and harness racing horse exercise. Many events at fairground. A real bargain for such a central location. Would stay here again.

Great location for touring the Subaru manufacturing facility. Very quiet. Quick drive into Lafayette. Many seasonals. Call ahead to check on site suitable for big rig. Very helpful and friendly staff and owners. Would stay here again.

Rate reflects Passport America plus electric heater surcharge. A real find. Wonderful host who helped us figure out what to do and where to eat. It is on the river with great sunsets and very, very quiet but still right in town. We walked to the museums, Michigan lakefront and shopping areas. Sites are very level with full hook-ups. Would most definitely stay again.

This campground was well located for what we wanted to do in the Greater Madison area: to ride four Rail to Trail bike rides, and so for that reason, not sorry to have stayed here. However, this campground needs some maintenance. We have a large fifth-wheel and needed to maneuver around many low trees that crossed the roadways. There are no sewers, which isn't all that unusual in this area, but the bathrooms were in need of serious help. Showers were not working and the floors in poor repair. It was quiet which I cherish above sewers.

No frills, but quiet with very long and very level sites. We used this as base for day trip to Houghton and Copper Harbor. Can walk to grocery store. Would highly suggest doing laundry prior to coming. Only laundromat in town is very dirty with many broken machines. Not much to the town, but the campground worked great for what we needed.

Rate reflects discount for Golden Age Pass. This is a US Bureau of Reclamation Area. Campground is about 5 miles north of Townsend on the banks of Canyon Ferry Lake. It is on Silo Road just beyond the KOA. Look for two large red brick silos that stand alone and turn toward the lake at the only major road in that area. Believe it is at milepost 70. Sign on road only states "camping." Campground is about a mile from main highway. No hookups, but you are rewarded with sitting right on lake edge and watch the huge white pelicans. Restrooms were very clean. Water is available from a central location. Sites have tables and fire rings. Very quiet. Great local museum in town. Lots of interesting things about Lewis and Clark who traveled through here before the Missouri River was dammed. We would stay again.

For what this is, it is a great place for overnight. Public owned on the banks of the Musselshell River under huge cottonwood trees. From downtown turn at Fairgrounds sign. Campground is about 1/2 mile. No hookups, but some tables and campfire rings that were the only indication of a parking place. We found a level spot and didn't have to unhook. Paved sidewalk into town. Easy walk to groceries and to a great local museum which we highly recommend. There is a walk along the river which starts at the fairgrounds and goes very near the downtown. Saw lots of deer. Very quiet. Donations accepted. Would most definitely stay again.

This isn't a fancy place, but no place in Hawthorne is fancy. It is well located, quiet, and clean with very clean bathrooms. It was much nicer than expected on reading prior reviews. There are no junky full time rigs. We would stay again.

This is an older park with poor water pressure and electric power. Weather turned cold and we needed to use electric heater, but amps were very low. When you make a reservation it is not for a specific site, which may or may not be a good thing. We were in Loop B which has some very tight turns for larger RVs. We got a pull through site which was fairly level but poorly laid out. Look site over very carefully to see if the directional arrows along the road really put the utility hookups on the correct side of the RV and check for low hanging trees. Some of the "big rig" site had vegetation so low as to make them unusable. TV reception was poor, usually doesn't make much of a difference to us, but with the cold weather, being indoors was desirable. Modem worked but not at broadband speeds. Cell phone worked. Overall a nice park and not sorry we came, but severely down rated due to water pressure and low electrical power.

We had camped here because of its location on the C&O Canal Trail. It was a big mistake as we are 34 feet long. I would not call this campground "big rig" friendly. Sites are hard to get into and there are lots of trees. It was, however, clean and probably an excellent place for smaller units. We attempted to ride our bikes from the campground to the trailhead. Road is steep, narrow, with lots of construction trucks. The trailhead is unmarked from road. We finally gave up trying to find it. We would not stay here again.
