For the price, this is a good place to stay. The only negative is the HIGH price for WI-FI. The trolley is also not run as conveniently as it used to be when it was The Grand, but I am not sure that is the RV park's issue.

This was a good, convenient place from the interstate highway, to overnight. When we visited, they said they had seen a lot of rain. We had standing water at our door: had to wear rubber boots when I stepped outside. A little added dirt or gravel in the depressions and some grass seed would have helped. Also, the site was not level from rear to front. My front wheels were off the ground and so was our neighbor's. They need to add some gravel and check level on the site pads. The management was very nice and the check in was easy and fast. The park was also quiet. Hopefully they will level and add some gravel here and there.

Overall, this park was a good place to stay: quiet and convenient to Gettysburg. It has lots of trees and shade and was well run for the most part. The dog park and dog walk area was very nice and the people really were helpful. Possibly overpriced, but it seems to me that is the case with a lot of KOA campgrounds. The WI-FI worked most, but not all, of the time. The reason I didn't rate higher was based on a sewer pipe problem across from us. They would work on it, then it would overflow: again and again. They should have just called a professional plumber! Not a pretty sight.

I liked the campground. We visited The Skyline Drive from here and saw some nice wineries in the area. It was fairly convenient to the main highway. Our site did not have sewer but we were OK with that. The only real objection to the campground I had was getting into the front group of sites where we stayed. The entrance to the front area is a hairpin curve. You cannot turn the corner to enter the camping area and you have to wind around the rear of the park on other roads and then come back to the exit road to enter from the opposite direction. You have to do the same thing when you leave the campground. The layout could be much better.

The sites were very small for us as listed as Big Rig Sites. Ours was very narrow and short. The park was clean and well run and seemed secure, but I am not sure I would call the site they assigned us a "big rig" site.

This is a nice park and I would stay here again if in the area. It is convenient to stores, restaurants and Blue Ridge Parkway access. Asheville and Biltmore Mansion are also close.

This was a very good stop for an overnight stay from Interstate 40 travel. We have a 40 foot Class A and there are several sites up on a hill that you can pull in and out of easily even with a tow car. You actually take up two smaller sites but the owners are OK with that and just charge for one site. That is why I said it was big rig friendly which was different from some other reviews. It was quiet, clean and very convenient to the interstate.

This is a nice place to stay but it did not seem to me to be as good as it used to be. I noticed what I thought was a sewer type odor when I was coming into the park entrance area that was pretty bad at times and also I thought the same type odor was along some of the RV sites when driving around in the rear of the park. The staff is great and very helpful with anything you need. The park is well maintained.

I guess I am different than some other reviewers of this park, but I did not think it was anywhere near worth what they charge per night. The rear dog run was very, very small and grown up with grass. The sewer connections where we were did not have plastic tops or sealers but just had boards put on top of the sewer hole where odor escaped. It was hard to level our rig there on the gravel and the interior roads reminded me of older parks not designed for a large rig. It just was overpriced in my opinion for what you got. We have stayed in "resort" type parks with free breakfast, free wifi and free newspapers, etc. and good interior roads for $35 or less a night. The people were nice but to us it looked like a much lower priced campground - maybe $25/night would be more fair. If they are going to charge an upscale rate then the park should reflect it. On the other hand - there is not much good competition in the area to keep their pricing in line.

This was a very nice park. They had a free USA Today, cookies, and a breakfast bar in the morning. The dog run was nice enough - better than most we have used. The reason I did not give them a 10 is that the WiFi was a little expensive, and I think WiFi is like the pool, dog run, or lounge/TV area and should be part of the free amenities at an upscale park. The people were very nice and helpful. While here - if you like Mexican food - go to La Posta in Old Mesilla to eat.

This was a nice, quiet park with great people at the desk. I didn't care for the casino across the highway. The RV park also had excellent security with security vehicles circling regularly. Landscaping was pretty and neat. Trash pickup was every morning. The $30 nightly rate is for a weekly discount of $210 per week. There is a great dogpark and dog exercise playground at Fountain Hills - about 3 miles away.

Nice park and probably better than trying to stay in Sedona. We visited Sedona from here and were glad we did not take the motorhome into Sedona. Close to the interstate and convenient. Gravel sites with parking being a little unlevel. People have been checking the sites as being "no shade" above. I changed the answer on my form because we had shade just fine. I do not think we had WiFi but I was not sure enough to check it on the form.

Very nice park but the dog walk area was not very nice - small with lots of dust and dirt. The rest of the park was clean and everythink worked. The people at the desk were very nice and helpful. I would stay here again.

Nice place to stay. They have a shuttle that will pick you up in front of your RV and take you where you want and then bring you back to your RV later. One night we used it when it was raining and went to a casino buffet and back to the motorhome and never got wet. They also have free WiFi. The only problem I found was that many other campers did not clean up after their pets and this is not really the park's fault. I might have given them a 10 if I had won some money at the slots - just kidding. This is a nice park to stay at when visiting the casinos or Memphis.

The park is very nice, but a little expensive in my opinion. WiFi not included in price and also a little pricey, but they had email service computers in the Recreation area. They have very nice managers and campground workers and a clean campground. We stayed a couple of extra days and met nice people there. They also had a nice dog walk area.
