This was a fine place for a big rig to stop for an overnight, just off of I10. It was not very busy, and the pull through was large enough to accommodate our 44 ft motorhome with the Jeep still hooked up. The check in process was quick and and the lady was very friendly. Best of all .... it was within walking distance to a pretty good steakhouse! I would definitely stay here again.

This was an OK place to stay for a week. Easy access from the interstate and well marked signage. Our long pull-through with 50 amps (there are limited number of sites with 50 amp) was not terribly level, but we were able to work it out. Everything was dirt and gravel but the ground was hard packed and stable. The folks running the campground were very nice. Great location for sightseeing and for access to Rapid City. We would stay here again, but would try for a more level site. Rate reflects the Passport America discount.

Previous reviews about tight turns are correct, but it was manageable. Overall, this is a nice spot. We were unable to level automatically on this site due to too much slope, but we were able to get reasonably level. We could live with it for 4 days. Some sites are level, we just weren't given one. We are a big rig and were able to negotiate all turns. The surface is coarse gravel and is very hard and stable. The sewer connections are sometimes distant from the rig, but again, manageable. Bike path is immediately adjacent to park. Great location central to many activities.

This is a great state park, especially for big rigs! Easy access from the interstate, and well-marked. Wide roads, long pull-through sites with paving and concrete slabs. Full hookups. Wonderful bike trails, and great views of the city and the mountains! Deer wandering through in the early morning and evening hours. We were in the Buffalo Loop, site 142. Very nice campground hosts. we would definitely stay here again. The daily rate includes a $9/day vehicle charge (they give you a free pass for the toad).

This is pretty basic camping. Find the Campground Host and he will help you find a site. It had rained hard here several times before we arrived, and there was a lot of standing water and the ground was soft. We were worried about driving onto the grass in a big rig, but the host found a spot where there was concrete, so we were all set. This is central to everything in Sioux Falls and is uncrowded and reasonably quiet on this Labor Day weekend. Can't beat the price -- with full hookups- we would stay here again for sure!

This was a nice spot for an overnight. Only a mile off the Interstate, with a paved pad, and full hookups including cable and Wi-Fi, for only $22/night (plus taxes). This was the discounted Escapees rate. There is very frequent and very convenient shuttle service to the casino. We signed up as new Rewards members in the casino and were given $10 each in free plays, so the net cost for staying there was about even. We even won a little money which almost paid for our dinner. Overall, a very nice way to spend an evening. Only downside was that our site was supposed to be 50 ft long, but we were just barely able to fit, and connect the power cord, and still have room to park the jeep. We did fit, but it was tight.

We love this campground. OK, it is a marina parking lot, but it has full hookups, the sites are wide enough to accommodate our 43 ft motorhome with slides out, and the Jeep parked alongside. We are looking out at boats cruising the harbor, and ships transiting the aerial bridge one block away. It is walking distance to Canal Park, with many restaurants and attractions, bike paths, etc. What is not to like? We would definitely stay here again!

This was a great place from which to tour the east end of the UP. The back in sites are along the edges of the parking lot ...very quiet, as the parking lot is several hundred feet away from the main casino lot. Some sites were on a slope, but it looked like everyone leveled OK. A short drive to St Ignace. The price was great! We would definitely stay here again!

This is certainly a unique place, with a unique owner. A nice guy. We needed to be in Marquette, and this was the closest park, which is why we chose it. It did accommodate our 43 ft motorhome with a long pull through, and we only scraped a few trees when negotiating the narrow roads. The low rating that I gave was for two specific reasons: (1) the water was terrible ...very odorous, often brownish in color. We were only there for 3 days, and I now have rust stains in the toilet bowl that I cannot remove!! The ice was brownish in color in spite of the filter in the fridge. We had to purge all the water systems after we left there, throw out all ice, and I am still cleaning the toilet trying to remove the rust stains. (2) it was dirty ...very hard to keep the coach clean. The driveway was a mix of dirt, sand, and pine needles, with little or no crushed stone. It rained one day and everything tracked into the coach! I would not stay there again.

This is a very nice park, and while a few miles out of town, it is right across the street from a bike trail. It is a very easy ride into Petoskey. The park is lovely, the sites are Huge, the roads are very wide. This place is perfect for big rigs. The only problem is a temporary one (I hope) ...they don't have cable service this year, and many of the sites have trees that block or inhibit satellite signal. The staff are wonderful, though, and allowed us to move several times until we found a site that worked for us. Very, very nice folks and very accommodating. We would definitely stay here again! The rate we paid was a promotional rate.

There are not many sites in this park suitable for a big rig, but there were a few. The staff were very accommodating in trying to find a spot for us that we would fit in. A pretty spot, with a great view of the lake. We would stay here again.

This is a lovely park. Too far from Traverse City to bike, so had to drive and park to enjoy the area bike trails. Nice place, nice people. Pretty pricey, but certainly very comfortable place to be. Would probably stay here again.

This was not a great place for a long stay. It was adequate, only. We paid a premium for a "patio" site.... it was asphalt paved, which is an improvement over the less expensive dirt/gravel sites. It was a long pull-through with a concrete patio and a fire pit. The area was heavily treed, and the satellite did not work. There was no cable TV available. There was WiFI, but there was a daily charge of $5.00. There were low-hanging tree branches that hit the roof of the coach when we arrived. I asked twice at the office for someone to come by to cut them and no one ever did, so of course they scraped the whole roof of the coach when we departed. The only exit lane is also the dump station lane, so there was a traffic jam in the morning, with campers lined up to leave, but stuck behind campers at the dump station. We loved Grand Haven, and were disappointed that this park was so far from the many bike trails around the town. Would not stay here again.

This was a very nice park with large lots and lovely landscaping. It is only about a mile from the Kal-Haven Bike Trail. We were able to ride our bikes right into South Haven! It was an easy ride, about 10 miles round trip. The only reason I am not rating the park higher is that there was no cable TV. The lots are wired for cable, but it is the responsibility of lot owners to hook it up. Lots in the rental pool do not have cable. I think for a premium charge of $58 / night, cable ought to be included. Otherwise, this place was great and we would definitely stay here again.

This is a nice park, and is fine for a big rig. We got a long pull-through in the "B" loops - were in site B101 and there was plenty of room for our 44' coach and the Jeep. There was 50 amp electric only (no water or sewer) but OUR SATELLITE WORKED, so we were happy campers indeed! AND, as an added bonus, the Ohio State Parks accept Passport America and discount the rate by 50% on weekdays! Fun park with lots of bike trails and nice scenery. Would stay here again, for sure!
