My rate reflects the nightly cost based on a monthly reservation. Previous reviews show the single nightly rate. They do not offer weekly rates (which I think they should). This is a parent-company owned KOA and it would be considered a "show-case" park for KOA. The staff & work-campers are great. I would concur with the previous reviews. Just a note to add on the solar panels: Two entire rows of sites have a 28' high series of solar panels installed over the sites. The 3500 solar panels are spaced out enabling sunshine to filter through for the fruit trees to continue to thrive. 15 RV sites can be parked under each row. Summer visitors should appreciate being largely out of the sun. The "Power Parasol" system is the first one of its kind in the USA. It's worth a stop to see it! We have our site reserved for the winter of 2016-2017.

Other reviews have accurately described the park and sites. Very small concrete patios that don't match up with doors. Sites are close to each other and there are no trees. We stayed here a few years ago and it was clean, pleasant and quiet. The full-time worker residents have totally ruined this park! Pickup trucks are coming through at high speeds day and night. One has to be careful walking in the park. This park is advertised as a "resort". Not sure why. It is definitely not a resort. We won't return here as there is a much nicer park 10 miles away!

Other reviews correctly reflect that this is an attractive Park. Rate is weekday rate with Player's Club Card. Non-club and weekend rates are higher. Sites are open with no large trees. Nice dog walk paths. As stated, most of the sites are pull thru with the ability to face either way and utilities on both sides. Negatives include no cable service and Wi-Fi was ok but not great. Restrooms need some TLC with replacement of commode seats, etc.

This Park, part of the RVC Outdoor Destinations group, is a modern, big rig friendly, site. All streets are paved. All sites are concrete with good sized patios, fire pits and charcoal grills. Most sites are pull-thru with numerous back-in sites along the river. The Park offers numerous amenities including golf cart, scooter, bicycle, and boat rentals. There are few grown trees in the central section of the Park. Cable and Wi-Fi signals were good. But, I would have given this Park a 10 rating but, even with offering over 25 channels via its cable service, none of the ESPN channels were offered. C'mon man!

This is a nice Park. All streets are gravel as well as the sites. Each site has a very small paved patio with table. As reported by others, the sites are quite close together but, each being at an angle enables reasonable privacy. The showers are private rooms. Rest rooms are clean. From staff friendly and helpful. Decent cell phone and Wi-Fi service. Good selection of cable stations. Also as reported, some sites might have uses accessing satellite services. The Park provides helpful driving instructions to the Chickamauga battlefield and Lookout Mtn.

This is a very nice & modern Park. It is about 3 blocks off the Parkway at stoplight #6 (all stoplights have numbers with the street names - neat!). It is close to all the activities yet it was very quiet. Campers have access to pools across the street at the Mainstay Suites. All streets are paved and all sites & patios are concrete. Sites are spacious. Rest rooms were modern and clean with private showers. Wi-Fi was very good. Good selection of cable stations. Strong cell phone signal. Nightly rates are "in-season". About 1/2 of the sites are pull-thru.

Date of Stay:

Narrow roads to get to the Park, which is about 3 miles off I-75, but once there, the entry is spacious. All gravel roads and sites inside Park. When we were there, it was quite dusty with vehicles coming & going. Sites 209 thru 223 were all gravel, sort of like a big gravel parking lot. Ironically, they seemed to park the big rigs in the gravel sites while the 9 new & longer sites, with grass, seemed to be assigned to little trailers. No cable service and Wi-Fi was very limited. Rest rooms were private and clean. Staff were professional and friendly. Good access to all the amenities of Georgetown and Lexington.

Date of Stay:

Easy access off Interstate. Streets & sites very tight. All sites are gravel and snug. Wouldn't recommend for big rigs and would suggest unhooking the tow before proceeding into the camping area. Rest rooms, standard KOA format, were clean. Wi-Fi was good. Staff were friendly.

Date of Stay:

This is a large, well planned Park. Unfortunately, the utilities are close to the pads potentially causing issues with slide outs and many of the sewer connections are elevated making it difficult to get a good "flow". Also, each site has a small sign post next to the street and quite close to the parking pad making parking somewhat of a challenge for a big rig. But, all the streets are paved, all the sites and patios are paved making for a very clean appearing Park. Shuttles to the casino come around about every 15-20 minutes. There is no cable TV but one should be able to get satellite service at any site. Staff were friendly and helpful. The Park fills quickly, particularly on weekends so would advise to make reservations well in advance of one's intended visit. The price listed is their 2015 weekday rate. Weekends are higher. We will definitely return.

This KOA is new and very nicely laid out. All interior roads are gravel. Sites 1-5 are "premium" sites with concrete pads, all the rest are gravel pads. Our rate reflects parking in a premium spot. Sites are reasonably spacious. If one has a stationary satellite dish, trees in the regular sites may interfere. Wi-Fi was strong. No cable service. Staff were very friendly. Restrooms are modern and clean. The Park is within view of the Interstate (39) but far enough away enabling it to be quiet. We would stay here again.

The Park must have been listening to previous reviews complaining of doubling their camping fees last year. Now, rates during the week are $20/night and $30/night on weekends for those with Player's Club cards. $10 more without the card. Sites are mostly level with concrete pads and patios. Sites are spacious with mostly pull-thru capability. Our site had cigarette butts laying around in the grass. Restrooms are clean. Staff are generally friendly but seem to get rattled easily. Wi-Fi signals are OK but internet access isn't always available. Would suggest calling in advance for reservations as they can be very busy.

This is an OK Park for an overnight stay. Management was fine. Contrary to their statement, Wi-Fi didn't work. All interior roads and sites are gravel. Sites are level. Rest rooms are clean but dated. Since there are not many options for west-central Illinois, this is one we'd visit again as we pass through.

Date of Stay:

This is a very nice and secluded Park located off the "beaten path" off tourist Bay side of the peninsula, but only 5 miles from all the action. Positives include great staff, clean restrooms, wooded and secluded sites with lots of space between. Negatives are all gravel interior roads, sites and patios. No Wi-Fi outside of the office, no cable, and one needs to search for satellite service, assuming one would wish to be connected. Further, sewer service is only available for a few sites. Nonetheless, given its location, we'd camp there again.

As previously mentioned, there are many small areas within the Park with many seasonal guests. The Park maintains boat slips on Big Arbor Vitae Lake if you are bringing one. The area that can accommodate the larger pull-through sites are at the back of the Park off Hwy 70 with the access unmarked. One turns into the drive of a local landscaping business, then hard right into the camping area. That access road is exactly 2 miles from the Hwy 51/70 intersection. There are 8 long pull-through sites (plus some additional sites which are all seasonal). All roads and sites are gravel but level. Negatives include Hwy.70 road noise, landscaping equipment starting up at 6am (prompt), no Wi-Fi on the upper portion (and uneven at the office) and no toilets in the upper section. We would stay there again largely because there aren't many long pull-through options in northern Wisconsin.

Date of Stay:

Nice new park - opened in 2012. All streets and sites are paved. For a new park, I believe the developer could have made the sites more level. No amenities for families, but I give them credit for having a concrete storm shelter. Lots of pull-thru's with easy off-on to I-135 and I-35. Their Wi-Fi was solid. The negative, very over-priced for what offering NO amenities.
