If you like tent campers, pop-ups, 5th wheels, RVs, lots of kids, and dogs all mixed together, this is the place for you. While they have separate tent campsite area they also allow them to intermingle with RVs with many sites having multiple tents; this was not a good mix in our opinion. The kids were good and dogs controlled and only a few owners did not pick up after their pets. This park has a private beech 3/8ths mile long which is nice except it was not well kept up with lots of leftover trash from the day before. Also, they allow tent camping on the beech. The interior roads were gravel, narrow, and the RV sites were gravel as well. There were some grassy areas but they were reserved for tent campers only. Staff were friendly but failed to deliver firewood ($8) as promised. The park is old and rather unsightly just having become a KOA. They have a long way to go to come up to the standards that we are use to for KOAs, and they are not inexpensive. They do have a little store, but no clubhouse. That they don't have cable TV or Wi-Fi capability is rather retro. There is absolutely no cell phone service and of the two public phones provided, only one worked. We stayed a week but will not return again

Owners/operators were great and went out of their way to please our Good Sams group. It's an old park with lots of gravel around the RV concrete slabs, some grass. Sites vary from shady to almost no shade. It is hot in the sun where we were. Power is a problem for them and they even give you a sheet of paper with what not to run; they even suggest that you run the refrigerator on gas. My electricity monitor confirmed the low power output. With just the refrigerant, TV and a light or two it was near marginal. During the day, just the AC brought it all the way down to the power warning display . . . not good! Being surrounded by the fairgrounds, County Corp Yard and residential area does not give it the woodsy Quincy feel. Though the Fairgrounds has a swimming pool (Rvers can use it) a noisy event can be a distraction if not an annoyance. Go back? Not likely . . ., there are too many other RV campgrounds in the area that are more in keeping with the forested get away vacation. They claim to have wireless for your PC like many parks. But the signal is so low, it is not likely that you will be able to connect.

This is an older KOA. The staff, though rather gruff in a refreshing way, were accommodating. Sites are okay . . . gravel pads with some grass and RV hookups that were dated but okay as well. There are lots of trees around proving shade ... it is in a very pastoral setting and relaxing for a one night stay. We would not stay longer. Compared to other KOA's it's over-priced, and needs some updating, but served our immediate needs as we were tired. We would not stay there again as we found a better place north of there.

This is a four star operation! We were very impressed with everything . . .the setting and view of the trees, the sites, the indoor pool and sauna, clubhouse and the staff. Although this is owned by the Casino, it is across the freeway (about a mile away), and does not have that "Casino" feel. Really this is more of a RV Resort than just a park. Some of the side benefits are that if you do get a "Player's" card at the Casino, you will get a 10% discount off your day stay at the RV Park in addition to a discount for KOA membership (Maybe others). Also you get $.03/gallon off on their gasoline. Oh yes, the Casino provides 24/7 pickup at you RV spot and takes you to the Casino and back to your spot. There are many fine restaurants at the Casino that are very reasonable . . . so you don't have to gamble. We did and won, too! This is a must stop for us from now on.

We stayed here for 8 days over Memorial Day weekend. Even though we were a little late in booking our reservations, staff went out of their way to get us a spot with full hookups with out our having to move. The Park is great, staff very pleasant and accommodating. Lots of trees, birds, elk and flora fauna to enjoy. On the weekend, they serve breakfast for a nominal fee. It is over a hill from the ocean, but close, so one does not get all the wind, Although they say that all sites have WiFi, that's not a reality. I could only get it in the laundry room and even that was a very weak signal. Really not much to complain about though. We've been there before and we will return.

One of the best RV parks that we have stayed at. The road is paved throughout and every site has pine trees with pea gravel. Some sites have a concrete deck pad. Every day, the sites are raked, debrois including left cigaret buts are removed. It is so neat and quiet among the many tall pine trees and the sites are spacious so that you are not right up to your neighbor. The river is pretty puny this time of year and a mossy but nice to look at. On the negative side, and there is not much negative, the showers do cost $.50 for five minutes they claim it's to cut down on their septic affluent (Really though your RV shower goes to the same septic system) and the bathroom only accommodates two each gender. They claim to have WiFi but unless you have a site right next to the office don't count on it serving you; one fellow had to sit at a picnic table right next to the office to get it to work. There were some young kids there but except for bike riding (their own) there was no activity for them, nor play ground. All and all though, it's a definite must go back for us.

While Best Western provides adequate Motel Rooms for rent they should have stayed out of the RV Park business. This Rv park is attached to the Motel. It is totally asphalt and conctrete. The AC Power is deploreable. The receptionist didn't have a clue about the park and directed us to an occupied spot. It is clear that this park caters to permanent residents as evidenced by the long term sites being trashy and cluttered. People let their dogs run lose. They suggest reservations probably due to the size of the park and the number of long term residents. I say skip it. We made a mistake!

There is nothing to see in Wendover so it really is just a place to spend the night. This park is old, but well maintained. Staff were friendly. There are trees but not enough to really afford much sun and it was so hot. Although they advertise WiFi, it really is not powereful enough to reach our 100 ft away as it fades in and out, so do not count on that. The one thing nice is that the Casino's provide a free shuttle service to their facilities and there are some wonderful placed to eat inside.

If you have never been there don't go. It is hot, dusty and gravel throughout. Our site's power registered 105 Volts AC with a meter. This can fry an AC or Microwave if one or both are running. A staff member checked and confirmed that. He said it was due to our AC running; clearly he did not want to admit that the park was underpowered . . . or at least our site.

This was a nice park. Sites have chairs, tables but are mostly gravel. It was hot but the power supplied was adequate to keep the AC on. There are grassy areas that you can walk to. Staff and there are a lot of them, are friendly and helpful. Each morning the cook all you can eat pancakes for $1 and have bacon and buffalo sausage as well for a bit more. They have family events like Bingo and Ice cream socials. It was pleasant and a great embarkation point for Cody and Yellowstone.

This is a dirty, dusty, wind-blown park with staff that are not too friendly. Wind kept us from using our awning and it was hot. Our site was littered with cigarette butts and very uninviting. However the Cable was great and the WiFi worked though slowly. The trees are more bushes and do not afford the much need shade. We will not go back.

Power is good and WiFi worked but was weak at times. Lots of grass but not on individual sites. Park is full of large mature trees. Sites are side by side so you share a picnic table with your neighbor. It is an Old park but well maintained. There is a lake with beach for swimming. There is also a recently placed storm shelter. Staff was friendly. A good overnight place.

Quite a nice stop-over particularly if you are sports people. Cabela's store is a short walking distance away and it will take you a couple of hours just to enjoy the store. Sites have grass and small trees; gravel prevails otherwise. They recommend reservations and believe them. They were turning people away the night we stayed.

Date of Stay:

There are lots of trees to view, although many of the trees on the site are too small for much shade. It is truly a beautiful park with several terraced site locations. Some grass at sites. Quite a ways off the road but worth the trip. Staff were friendly and the store on location was well stocked with food, equipment but way too many boutique things.

Great Park. Don't be fooled by the block of driving to get there (Shantytown). Not only is the park along side of the Missouri River, but it has a great restaurant along side of it (Beef Eaters). It is a very modern park with grass areas along side of each site. Staff is great and you have free shuttle service to St Charles, a very old, quaint town with lots of shops and restaurants. If you are into Botiques, you'll love this town; my wife did. The Museum is not worth the time, but you guys must visit the Cigar store. Word of caution though, do not leave your awnings up; nasty winds come up suddenly. Two RVers lost their awnings in one day . . . ripped them right off, struts and all. This was the only park in our 5 week sojourn that had excellent WiFi service. Granted you had to pay for it (~$7 per week) but it was reliable with great speed. Staff were very friendly. It's a must go to again park.
