As per a suggestion from another campground poster from last year we camped in site #12. This site is probably the best one in the campground however there were a couple quirks. The power pedestal and water spigot are located at the front of the site so bring a couple long hoses and maybe a HD extension cord. As for the rest of the campground you have a 50/50 chance of getting a level site so bring plenty of blocking. They are not real bad but be prepared. All sites have a fire ring and older picnic table. Someone came around each night selling wood also. The campground showers and bathrooms are actually in the casino so you will have a walk of around 75 to 100 yards depending on what site you are in. Even though we didn't use the showers we observed that they were very clean. We did eat one evening meal in the casino and it was very good and reasonably priced. The lake side of the campground road offers very beautiful views of the lake and islands. We did notice people cutting through other people camp sites which is a thorn in my butt. All in all we were very happy with this campground. It was very quite at night plus there is lots to do in the area.

We love this campground. This is a adult orientated campground as there is really nothing for kids to do here…The only thing stopping us from rating it a 10, is that they have absolutely no local tourism information in their office. In order to see what there is to do or see in the area, you would need to find the information elsewhere. The campground is only minutes away from an abundance of shopping and stores. If you want shade at your campsite, I suggest you reserve site 1 thru 30. Other then those sites, you and your rig will be sitting in the sunshine. The gravel sites were not the most level, but we had no problem getting our coach nice and level with blocks that we always have along. All sites have picnic tables sitting on a blacktop/concrete pad. This is a nice and quite campground which office closes early during the weekdays. The International Airport is close by, but we notice no distractions from the planes coming and going. The Internet access at our site was extremely good and we were told it was like this in the whole campground. The young man who checked us in was very friendly. This was our only contact with staff here during out stay.

This is a older campground that could stand a little updating but for a up north campground this is normal. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The owners do not take plastic so plan on paying with cash or a check. We were there right after the area was hit with over 10 inchs of rain so some of the sites were not being used as they were to soft for a rig to drive on them. The campground has Wi-Fi through out Its just far enough out of Superior to be rural but close enough that it only takes a couple minutes to get to the city. We really like this campground and the small camping fee considering that all sites are full hook ups. We would definitely stay here again if we get into the area.

This is a fantastically clean and friendly campground. The staff is super nice and really seems to go above and beyond to make your stay memorable. The sites are spacious and level. The office/store has the basic REV supplies plus there is a game room area for the kids on rainy days. The swimming pool is small but well maintained. The only thing I would have liked to see is a adult only swim time because of the large amount of kids who were in the pool. This left no room for adults to enjoy a swim. Maybe the last hour of the pool daily hours could be designated adults only. Just a thought. The campground is also equipped with Wi-Fi throughout so you can use your computer from your coach if you like. I would highly recommend this campground to anyone heading to the St. Cloud area.

Very nice family run campground. We were going to arrive late so after advising them of this fact they kept their office open until we arrived. I thought this was nice of them. After registering the owner escorted us to our site and made sure we were all set up. Kewaunee is a fisherman's paradise. If you got a hankering to go fishing there are tons of charter boats in the area to take you out onto Lake Michigan. Besides fishing there is lots to do within 20 miles of the campground. We really enjoyed our stay at this campground.

This is a great campground that's not far from the Twin Cities. Its a great base of operation location if you want a nice quiet campground that's close to tons of attractions. The only thing that prevents me from rating this park a 10 is the Wi-Fi. They have it, but unless you are camped directly behind the office there is no signal beyond that. They do have tables and chairs set up inside the office area for us Wi-Fi'ers and there is plenty of signal in the laundry room area after the office closes, so its really not a problem of a little walk to the office or laundry room. The staff here is very friendly and accommodating. We definitely will be staying here again. Happy camping.

Solberg County Park is a very nice family friendly campground that is around 5 miles outside of Phillips, WI. While the park says it can handle large RV's, I would say bigger units, larger then 38', would have a tough time getting around. The park has electric hookups to 50 amps but water has to be carried in. The dump station and the potable water spigot is just inside the main entrance of the park so fresh water can be loaded, for around a $1, into your tank before you proceed to your campsite. This campground does not take reservations as it's first come, first served so if you get their early on Friday you should be able to find a site but kiss your chances away if you try late Friday or on Saturday. It normally fills fast. There are a couple pretty nice, lake swimming areas without life guards, so it's up to you to keep an eye on your kids. The campground caretaker is right on the ball so watch your P's & Q's when it comes to the campground rules. There is a boat ramp so you can launch your boat for some great fishing on Solberg Lake. I recommend this family campground, but like I said get there early so you can be sure to get a site. Happy camping.

We love this park. We try to get back to it at least once a year but normally in the fall when the leaves are in their brightest colors. This year I programmed my Garmin to the address for the campground and was floored when it tried to get me to turn into a field where the campground should have been. It turns out that Garmin can't differentiate the difference between Hwy. 42 and State Hwy. 42. The campground is actually 1.5 miles north of Egg Harbor while my Garmin said it was south. The campground owner said he's been trying to get Garmin to update their records so it shows their business in its correct location. Other then that, we think this is one of the better campgrounds up in Door County. There is some highway noise from Highway 42, but it isn't anything that really bothered us. We were here for the last weekend of the year so the place was fairly empty which made it kind of pleasant. We did a nice bonfire the cool Saturday night and enjoyed its warmth with a bottle of fine wine. The staff was just as friendly as always but the pool was closed for the season. It had something to do with it being 50 degrees outside so I can understand that. We highly recommend this campground and will be back next fall.

Prairie Island Campground is a nice city run campground that is older but quite beautiful. Several of the sites along the Mississippi River were under 2 to 4 feet of water when we were there but we still managed to score a site above water and right on the river. The thing I thought was interesting was that the water they advertise is actually white camper hose, run from a spigot to behind all the campsites where they installed a bunch of splitters for us to hook up to. Not much for water pressure but it works and I guess that's what counts. The young man who checked us in could use a class on manners, like how to say "thank you" and "your welcome," but I guess that's how the younger generation is now days. One particular thing I liked is that the dump station concrete apron is angled so when you hook up your sewer hose the tanks drain quite quickly and completely. I like this small feature. This is a nice quiet campground that we could visit again if we were in the area.

We chose Tall Pines as our base camp for our summer vacation in the Branson area. We spent seven nights here. The campground employees we had contact with were very friendly and helpful. The campground is older and could use a little updating but with as little time we spent in camp it was very comfortable. There is lots of shade and a nice swimming pool for everyone to enjoy. The location of the campground is close to all the Branson attractions without being so close you were bothered by high traffic and noise. All in all a nice campground that is family friendly.

We happened across this campground as we were heading down to Branson, Missouri for a vacation. It was raining extremely hard and I was tired from driving in it, so we decided to overnight at the first campground we came across. Fortunately for us it was Double J. From what we saw this is a very clean, nicely run family oriented campground. The sites we observed were nicely laid out and plenty large for even the biggest coach. We very seldom go to the same campground twice, as we like to explore new things, but we would go back to Double J. Two thumbs up on Double J even though they give no discounts for Good Sam.

We spent the past three days at the Waupaca Camping Park and as usual we love it. The place was packed for the Memorial Day weekend but that can be expected. The only problem we had was with a seasonal camping family. Nothing irks me more then kids cutting through our campsite because they were to darn lazy to walk around and that's what we experienced during out stay. We could see where the kids got this rude action from because the parents did the same. I should have said something but for whatever reason, its not like me not to say something, I just let them cut through. Other then these un-courteous campers it was a great weekend...

Heaven's Up North Family Campground is a great little campground. It's been open since 1995 and it is a typical up-north Wisconsin campground. It's located around many great fishing lakes and is in the heart of the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. The Wolf & Pestiago Rivers are close by which offers the opportunity for some great white water rafting and rubber inner-tube rafting. The campground itself is heavily wooded with rolling hills throughout. In my opinion big rigs, units over 32 feet long, would have trouble moving around this campground. The roads are that tight. The sites themselves are large enough for comfort and they all have fire rings and picnic tables at every site. Unfortunately the weekend we were there it rained buckets the whole time so we didn't get much opportunity to explore the campground. We did stop into the main lodge and met the campground hosts who were very friendly. Inside the lodge they have a few video type games for the kids but not much in reference to camping supplies. Their web page is unique as you can actually see the site you might want to reserve. This is a great feature in my opinion...My wife and I normally don't go back to the same campground twice because there are so many different ones to pick from but we already agreed to visit Heaven's Up North Campground again. It one of the most beautiful campground we've seen in some time. Once you get settled in and you're looking for a great place to eat jump on Hwy. 34 and head about five miles north of Lakewood to a wide spot in the road called Townsend. Upon your arrival look for a restaurant on your left called M.J. Beans Casual Dining. We went there and were blown away by the great food and service. For a casual dining place they really got their act together. I had a huge Rib Eye steak that was done to perfection. I ordered it with sauteed mushrooms and it came with a large bowl of delicious, prepared to perfection ones. The wife had a shrimp stir fry what was also done to perfection. They also offer a great salad bar and was full of very fresh greenery and homemade dishes. Anyway back to the campground. We highly recommend this campground but only if you have a unit under 32 feet or so. Happy camping.

This KOA is an older campground but well kept. As we drove into the entrance: the first 100 feet or so was like driving on a washboard. I suppose they leave it like this to slow down incoming and outgoing traffic. I hate roads like this because it shakes the dickens out of my coach! The older campsites located behind the office are quite small, so using a slide out keeps you very close to your neighbors. They use a parking system where some of campers face one way while the next is facing the other. This system puts some campers door to door with their neighbors so you really don't have any privacy. This isn't bad if you're the friendly type and don't mind looking at your neighbors all the time. There is plenty to do for the kids. The staff offers hay rides, without hay, which the kids really seemed to enjoy. When it's dark the kids all have glo-sticks when they ride around: so its neat to watch them go by yelling at the top of their lungs. The swimming pool is very small: when we were there, it was very hot out, so there were so many kids in the pool you couldn't see the water. I can only image the bacteria level in the pool with it full of kids: yuk. There is a very small hot tub for adults only, but has a capacity of only 6 people. It was full all the time. I would recommend this campground if you have kids. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. All in all, a nice place.

Waupaca Camping Park is a older family run campground but its very well taken care of. They have a nice sized in-ground swimming pool that is heated by huge solar panels mounted on the office roof. This keeps the pool water at between 80 and 90 degrees. They offer a kiddie play area for toddlers from 5 and under. Most of the sites have concrete pads, but because this is an older park, the sites are a little tights as they were designed for campers without slides. This is not a real problem, I just wanted to make anyone planning on staying there aware of this point. The office/store is well stocked and there is a game room for the gamers in your family. The sites numbered 37 through 59 back up to Old Taylor Lake so this is a real peaceful area of the park. They have a few rental cottages and even a Yurt for rent. Look it up to see what a Yurt is... We highly recommend this park for a night, week or longer. The staff is very friendly and the surrounding area has lots of sites to see and things to do. Happy camping...
