This is our second stay at this campground. This is a first class resort with accompanying amenities. The cable is exceptional and the grounds are immaculate. The roads and sites are concrete and the landscaping is attractive. It is a little expensive but you get what you pay for. There is adequate grassy areas between sites. The campground is quiet at night and easy to find right off the interstate. The laundry is expensive at $2 per washer or dryer. The internet was a bit iffy at times but usually adequate. We would stay here again.

This is our second stay at this campground. If you want to be near Custer State Park, this is the campground for you. If you want to be closer to Mt. Rushmore, then you should choose a campground in Hill City, South Dakota. We had site #50 which is a satellite friendly back in. The sites are a nice size with grassy areas in between sites. The campground is quiet at night and people seem respectful of each other. The internet was great with good signal from several towers. The bathrooms were clean and well maintained. The sites were gravel and well maintained. The office staff was friendly and efficient. We enjoyed our 6 night stay here and would return again.

We chose this campground for an overnight stay. You have to drive into the town so it is a few miles off the interstate which may be an issue for some overnighters. We had site #25 by the river but were not able to get sewer hookup as they have very few full hookup sites. The sewer dump is very inconveniently located as you have to circle behind the office to access it. The Internet was adequate although it wavered from time to time. The site had an amazing view of the river, which we enjoyed. The bathrooms were large and clean. The owners were not overly enthusiastic but we were checked in quickly and efficiently by a teenager. The roads are paved and the sites gravel. It was quiet at night which we appreciated. We had a nice stay at this campground. We would stay here again.

This is a perfect campground for an overnight stay or maybe longer if you are in the area. For us it was for overnight. It is very easy to find off the interstate and we did not notice any interstate traffic noise. The sites are shaded with cottonwood trees but we were able to use our satellite. The bathrooms were a bit dated but clean. The sites were nicely graveled and well maintained. The Internet signal was strong and appreciated. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the campground. The owner was very friendly and we felt welcome. They have very few rules but we encountered no problems while there. We would stay here again.

This was not our first choice for a campground in the Columbia area but the one where we usually stay was full so this was the next best we could find. The lack of Internet was very inconvenient. This is a very rustic campground. By that I mean lots of trees and natural landscaping. It has more of a woodsy feel. The sites were gravel but well maintained. We were able to use our satellite dish. The owners were very nice and were helpful in answering questions and giving information. The campground was quiet at night which is important to us. There were a few barking dogs but not for extended periods of time as we have experienced at other campgrounds. It is located a bit off the main road and there is a fairly steep gravel hill into the campground but we negotiated it with no trouble. If a resort-like atmosphere, pool, and Internet is important to you then this is not the campground for you. We would stay here again.

The rate reflects stay 6 nights get 7th night free. I cannot rate this park based on accessibility to New York City, therefore, my rating of 4. The campground was not as bad as I feared or had been led to believe by former reviews. The sites were wider than expected. The bathrooms were not as bad as expected although a few little repairs would have improved them tremendously. It is obvious this is just a money maker for the owners with no desire to improve. The trash was picked up fairly regularly but the campground was in need of a good trash pickup day. The electricity was reliable even though the campground was full and a heat wave was gripping the entire area. We never had any power outages. The office staff would answer questions but were far from what I would call friendly or forthcoming with information. Their hours were satisfactory for our needs. We found it very easy to travel into NYC and was worth the poor quality of the campground itself for this convenience. We would stay there again if visiting NYC.

This campground is about 10 miles from the Newburgh so it is a little inconvenient for driving into town quickly. The campground was neat and well maintained. The bathrooms were okay and clean most of the time. The laundry was very tiny and not conducive to doing laundry because of the size. The internet was fairly reliable but the cable TV channels were a joke with few channels and some with no sound at all. This was not addressed even though reported by us. We had a problem with the coach next to us running the generator and it took 4 trips to the office and a threat to call the police before they contacted the owner to stop the generator. This was even though their own rules stated no generators plus the fumes were seeping into our fifth wheel. This was completely unacceptable!! The campground was quiet in the evenings. I would probably look for another place to stay if visiting the area again.

This rate is the weekly rate for a 30 amp plus we had to pay electricity for the site. The campground is quiet and the owner is helpful and responsive to problems. However, the campground is in need of maintenance, painting and general clean up work. It does have a run down and tired look about it although flowers have been planted and you can tell some effort has been made to make the campground attractive. The bathrooms are tiny but clean. The cable channels are quite extensive and the WiFi was reliable and quick most of the time. On a few nights it was slow or unavailable. There is a pool which people were using, but I cannot comment on it since we did not use the pool. You are only 15 miles from a train station to catch the SEPTA rail into Philadelphia which was convenient. You are about 20 miles from Valley Forge National Park and King of Prussia Mall. Whether this campground is for you depends on your priorities. For us, the quiet was worth fewer amenities and a few inconveniences. I am not sure if we would stay here again. I would definitely explore options before staying again but I would not rule it out.

Rate reflects 10% AAA discount. This is our second stay here. We were in site 1307 which was fine and in 1301 our first stay. This is close to the bathhouse and away from the worst interstate noise. This campground makes it so easy to visit DC. The bus comes right to the campground or you can drive 3 miles to the metro station which is what I recommend, especially on weekends. The bath house was clean and spacious, the internet was steady and the cable was okay but a little limited in channels. We found the office staff helpful if a bit abrupt but check-in was quick and efficient. We had an escort to our site and when we had to change because of utilities they were very cooperative. The laundry room was large but in need of cleaning. We were well satisfied with our stay and would definitely recommend and stay here again.

We liked this campground. The sites were gravel and the bathrooms were old, but they were very clean. The office staff was pleasant and helpful. The rate reflects a promotion for staying 6 nights and get the 7th night free. The cable was good and the wi-fi was reliable and accessible. The campground was full on the weekends, but it was very quiet and a pleasant place to stay. The proximity to Gettysburg was a definite plus, and we found a road just by the campground that led you directly to the auto tour of the park. We would definitely stay here again.

The positives of this campground were: location to Harper's Ferry National Park and good parking area for checking into the campground. The check in was fairly quick even though we had to request an escort to our site. The negatives far outweighed the positives in our opinion. The $6 resort fee charged per day would have been appropriate if you used the resort amenities. Since we never did, I felt we should have had a choice as to whether we wanted to use those resort amenities and be charged accordingly. The sites were fairly close together and many of the campers near our site (36) were very loud during the day and into the night. There was open drinking all day and very loud and disturbing behavior that was never addressed by the management. As this continued into the night well past the 10 pm quiet time, no security addressed this issue and as a call to the campground office resulted in an answering machine, we were forced to call the local police to deal with the loud and obnoxious neighbors. The next morning when I reported this to the office they seemed more upset that we had involved the local police than that we were disturbed well into the night. However, they did address the problem the following night although the same behavior continued during the day. I felt this behavior was inappropriate for a KOA family campground. After the weekend passed and the beer drinkers left, the campground was quiet and pleasant. The wi-fi was slow and the cable channels limited. I thought the price was very high for the quality of the campground. We do not plan to stay in this campground again.

This park is located about 10 miles South of Charlottesville, Virginia. It is a country campground with urban amenities. We were in site 24 which was a pull-through and a good fit for our 35 foot camper. We were near the back of the campground but the Wi-Fi was strong. The cable was adequate. Our site was gravel and had some shade. The bathrooms were older but very clean. The campground was very quiet and peaceful. No barking dogs even though there were many pets in the campground. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a very nice park well located to access the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum and the mall. The rate reflects a AAA discount. The park is paved with nice landscaping. It has adequate WI-Fi and cable. The bathrooms are modern and clean. The location is between a busy road and I-44, so if road noise is bothersome you may want to look elsewhere. The campground was quiet with a few barking dogs that were addressed by management when brought to their attention. The staff was friendly and efficient upon check in. We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

We like this campground. The rate reflects a AAA discount. The staff is efficient and friendly. This is a no frills park but it has everything you need for an overnight stay. It has adequate cable and WI-Fi and is clean. It is quiet and reasonably priced. We will stay here again.

Date of Stay:

The rate reflects staying 7 nights but paying for 6 because of a cable outage. This park suits our needs because it is close to the Grand Canyon. There are shuttles that come into the campground so you never have to drive if you choose not to. We were in site A-3 which was close to the shuttle pickup but a little tight with our three slides. They have cable but we lost it in a thunderstorm on our first night and didn't get it back until our last night. I felt the campground was very unresponsive to our complaints about the cable. The campground isn't pristine nor well landscaped but we felt the location overrode the negatives. There is no WI-Fi but it is accessible at several places in the park. There is no view from the campground, but it is just a short shuttle ride to the rim. The staff was adequate but not particularly friendly. The bathrooms were older but clean. We would stay here again just because of the location.
