When coming onto the island, take Spur 20 and the Fidelgo Bay road. Road is narrow, and there is a section that is not very good. Main internal road is paved, but roads leading to sites and the sites themselves are gravel but pretty level. There was some dust. This is a two part resort. The original part is adjacent to the water (there is a refinery across the bay) and has a gravel beach. The clubhouse is in this area. The second area is closer to the main entrance. Best sites, if you cannot get on the water, are the east facing pull in sites in the older part since you are looking at a green belt. The green belt contains the Thompson bike and walking path that runs about 5 miles total and its about 2.5 miles into town. Staff was great; very helpful with directions and suggestions. This park is about 10 minutes from downtown Anacordes. No off leash dog park, but there is a large grassy area to walk them, and you can walk them along the Thompson trail (but watch for the herds of rabbits and feral cats if you dogs will chase them). Utilities were good. Wifi was strong and cable was clear. We would stay here again.

To get here go N 1 mile on US-2 from city center (there is a sign that says city center) and go S on Icicle Road. Keep going. This is a narrow, twisty road. When you get to the 3 mile marker look to your left for the entrance. Entrance is quite narrow and not well marked. Interior roads are mostly paved but really twisty and narrow. Scraped our coach on a tree. Most sites are back or pull in. If you have a 38' coach or longer they will put you in the "new" area (110-114). Note that to get to your site you must go up a gravel 30 degree slope and stop short of the boulders which stop you from going over a cliff to the river below. Really hard to unhook a towed from that position, but you can't do it elsewhere. To get out you have to call the office and have someone come and assist you in backing out! And its back thru the trees. Water outlet was within 5 inches of the sewer (look for the one for irrigation). Electric was very bad. 50 amp had a little as 71 volts on one leg and kept tripping. "Guide" showed up with a multi meter and checked it and said 113 is good the best they ever get is 113 volts. Had to go to a 30 amp plug and even then would not run 2 AC's. They have a significant electrical issue. The office staff told us that the site was fairly level and facing some trees along the river - it was but from 150 ft up! Even upon check in the office staff was rude and the camp "guides" were no better. Since we travel with dogs and could not rely on the electricity we bolted the next day. No refund. Despite the dust you can't wash your coach. No areas to walk the dogs since the new sites were the dog walking areas and other areas are actually marked "off limits areas". Sites are really tiny. Could not put out awnings without hitting next coach. Leavenworth is just not worth staying at this place. Higher rating must be from family members.

Access is good, but if coming S on US 95 watch for the turn after the bridge since the turn lane is short. Interior roads are mostly paved, with mostly paved sites. Some of the sites are pretty short so make sure you have a long enough site when making a reservation. Water is high pressure so use a reducer. Electric was fine. Cable TV was not good and very grainy - but over the air channels and sat signals are available. Some smaller interior trees with lots of trees around the perimeter. Nice walking path. There is a beach with some reserved for the dogs. You can rent watercraft on site. Large grassy areas especially near the beach, but it is watered often and it is pretty soft. Even some of the pads are somewhat soft so we used blocks under our jacks. There is a large fenced dog run, but who ever built it does not own a dog. It is gravel and it is hard for dogs to walk on it. There are grassy sidewalks to a nearby restaurant on which you can walk your dogs. There is a dog run in town as well. Park is fairly well lit at night. No one said anything when the rig was washed. Very small campground store. Staff was very helpful. If you are planning on staying here, reservations are a must. I gave them a point reduction for the lousy cable and gravel dog park.

Access good. Interior roads paved and sites gravel. Sites are level or close to level. Note that if you are towing, and if you pull forward to clear the road, you may need an extension on your electrical cord or hose. So when you park, look at where the pedestal is at the back of the site. Utilities were good except for the cable. If you want to use a satellite, get a site on the outer south side loop. Grounds are beautiful with flowers everywhere. Staff was helpful and friendly. Note that you need a reservation here since it is usually filled up by mid afternoon. You can hear a train in the distance, but it is not an issue. There is no real road noise. No off leash dog area, but plenty of areas to walk the dogs. We really like this place.

This is actually titled the Big Timber/Greycliff KOA. It is a Journey class, and after experiencing this place we think it means it is a park you only want to pass thru once. No KOA signs so follow directions. There is a long abandoned water park out of a Stephen King novel adjacent to the KOA so when you see it you know you have arrived. Access is tight. Roads and sites are rough gravel. There is grass between the sites. Sites are narrow but long enough. Lots of big trees so if you have a roof mounted satellite, shoot for site 23-25. There is an "apology" on the back of the park site map saying they can't help the highway noise (not too bad) nor the trains: which sound like they are under your slideout. Not many places to walk your dog. There is a standard "tiny" KOA off leash area. While walking our dogs (which we clean up after) we were told by the staff they were concerned that our dogs were 'going' near the campsites (they weren't) and we should use the dirty dog run. Instead we walked them near the extensive on premises dump or up in the abandoned water park. We noted that the water supply pipe runs thru the dump so we used on board water. Not pet friendly. Not really kid friendly; there is a small playground and a dirty bounce field, but most kids toys were spotted in the dried out stream bed of the water park. There is a pool but it was covered in August. Said they would uncover it if we wanted to use it! Although not very nice, it is nicer than another, rated #1 (really) KOA. I looked at the ratings on this place, and anyone who gave it an 8 must be related to the 6 inhabitants of the town.

This is still the nicest RV park in the Black Hills, but is showing a bit of wear. On the plus side, roads have been resurfaced, one of the courts converted into a pickle ball court and most of the gopher holes in the dog runs have been filled in. But, landscaping is suffering. The only area with irrigation is around the office and cabins, and the rest of the park has dead grass. The grass in our site was simply worn away, leaving dirt. No one checks then sites when someone leaves. Ours had a cable TV fitting that was pushed in and stripped and there was some litter on the ground. Some trees are dying because of the drought in Western SD and some have died and been cut down to a 4 to 6 inch stump, so you trip over them. No more newspapers available at the office.

This is an older KOA just off I-90. Access is good. Interior roads and pads are dirt. There are some small trees around RV sites and some larger trees by some tent sites. There are places to walk the dogs, but no off leash area. And, there are burrs that will get in your dog's feet. They admit it is always windy here, can get dusty. There are few campgrounds in mid SD, so this is a place to stay overnight, but not longer. Nothing in this town. Staff was friendly.

City owned campground in a city with Frank Lloyd Wright buildings to tour. Access roads in park are paved, sites are gravel & level. No reservations, but if you call the host they will tell you what they have open. While there not 100% full. Some sites sunny, some shaded. This is in a park surrounded by a quiet, nice, residential neighborhood. It is adjacent to a huge aquatics center with multiple pools. It has multiple playgrounds, bike & walking paths, and is on a river. Whole place is clean and neat. One review said it was hard to navigate to, but that is not accurate. Take exit 190 (Calif. Ave) N off Rt 18/ US 27, go N 3 miles, turn W on 12th Street, drive to RR tracks and slow down and take L onto Kentucky Ave. Drive on Ky Ave S for 4.5 blocks to First Christian Church on Right and turn R on Birch. Entrance on Left. You avoid traffic and trees via this route. Kid and pet friendly. This is a real gem. Hosts are wonderful.

Directions are good. Get off I-80 at Exit 81. There is a Loves truck stop there so you can fill up, then come out and go north 1.5 miles and take a left. Park is on the left. Access is tight. Only about a dozen pull thru sites and some of those are only good for smaller rigs. Most of the sites are for pull in or back in. Really only 2 good pull thru sites for larger rigs. Lots of beautiful tent sites. Beautiful grounds. Good size off leash dog park. Friendly and helpful staff. Would stay here again.

Directions were good. Access good. Interior roads and sites are all gravel. Despite lots of rain the park drained well. This is an older KOA and sites are a little tight. Limited number of pull thru sites so call ahead. Great places to walk the dogs across the street and around the owner's pond. Nicest folks run this place.

This used to be McKinneys RV but is now an RV conversion business and campground. The RV sites are along the east side of the business. The whole place is now rough gravel. Sites are all background but level. Staff is friendly. Water service is good as is sewer. The electric service is "iffy". First time we stayed here we were on the southern end of the line and had some voltage drops. Same this time to the point where the ACs kept tripping. If you come you need to get a site next to the power house, a metal shed near the north end of the line. Call for reservations and then recall the morning of arrival. The business has been cleaned up a lot with old wrecked RVs gone and the warehouse better arranged. Still work to do but making headway. If its hot and you need reliable electric, try another place.

Called for reservation. Owner is normally not in the office but will take a reservation and post it to a board by the door. Nice guy. Family owned campground. Find your site, and pay at the box by the door. Interior roads asphalt and gravel. Sites gravel and level. Electric and water good. Never got cable to work. Lots of places to walk your dog in the adjoining property. Directions are good; just get off I-40 at Exit 84 and head north, past truck stop, and the park is on the right side. In and out is easy. Best place on I-40 between Oklahoma and Little Rock.

This is beginning to be a campground dedicated to permanent guests. Last two rows are taken up by permanent 'campers'. There are only about 6 to 8 sites that appear available for overnight campers. Roads and sites are dirt. Utilities were fine as was cable TV. No off leash dog run, but lots of areas to walk the dogs. Not much noise from the nearby truck stop. Never saw the manager. Just found a site, put payment in an envelope, and deposited it in the box at the office. Some areas, like the fence/flower box in front of the office need maintenance. Some neglected work needs to be addressed. Otherwise a good spot to stay overnight in an area with few options.

This was our 6th visit to Bella Terra, and it was just a beautiful as before. Despite a week of rain, there was no flooding or water issues. The pump ran, drained the lake down a bit, and the rain refilled it. Good management. The holiday festivities included a Christmas party, lunch and a NY eve bash. Lots of activities if you want to participate. Looks like the resort is almost complete. Just a few lots remain undeveloped. While this place is beautiful, the staff makes it a 10. They are caring and responsive. Renters are treated just like owners. Great place.

For directions, follow those on the web site and they will get you there. Interior roads are gravel. Pull thru center pads are cement. Utilities worked good as did cable. No interior lighting so its dark at night. There is a fair size fence dog run with a high fence right behind the office. Appears to be a nursing home next door, and you can walk dogs behind its back fence. Staff was not there when we arrived, but we called and he was there is 2 minutes; and gave us good advice on how to get back to highway. There is no pool, playground, store, etc. This is a bare bones park, but okay for an overnight.
