Overall a well kept park, except for the power. One site's 30A plug was melted and power at our site was around 116v with only 1/3 the sites in use. Be aware of the nearby train tracks where the passing trains freely use their horn.

Date of Stay:

Location is great for both downtown and airport. Park appears to be pretty busy. Staff were very helpful. Wi-Fi was fast. AT&T cell worked well. Power and water good. Be wary of berries from trees dropping on roof and slide toppers. Entrance to park is a little hidden so be careful. Left hand turns into park require crossing busy two lane section of road. Turn is almost a U turn.

Date of Stay:

Big thing to watch for in sites in A section is goat's head stickers. Like many TTN Parks the roads are not being kept up. Road leading to gatehouse was pretty dusty. AT&T cell works with LTE signal. Staff friendly and helpful. Many deer roaming the area at this time of year.

The good is that everything worked. Wifi, ATT signal, and power were good. No real issue with mosquitoes or flies. The bad was that it was a little dusty in the overnight spots from the traffic driving through the park to get to the adjoining mini golf and go cart track. Water was hard, but tasted okay. Most of the existing spots were taken by long term residents, however, they are expanding and adding another 30 or so sites. Park wasn't real busy while we were here. Was able to use PA for a couple nights.

Date of Stay:

We stayed here with a caravan. Owners grouped us in a large lot with 30 amp power. We were able to dump and fill water both before and after parking here. Beware that mosquitoes and black flies can be bad at this time of year, so bring your spray. Owners were very attentive, treated us very well in addition to watching over our rigs while we were in Churchill. No wifi at campground, but able to use wifi at Tim Hortons or McDonalds in town. ATT (Rogers) phone service did work here.

Appears the family of the owners is now taking care of the park. Still a friendly, well kept, and quiet stopover. Great value considering costs at nearby cities. Drive slowly as there are some poorly maintained roads leading to the park. Would definitely consider stopping again when we pass back through here.

Date of Stay:

The park is clean and well kept. At least 1/2 the park is long termers. The entrance and the park roads get a little clogged when RVs arrive during the afternoon rush. We arrived on a hot day (90+) and most everyone had their A/C working. Voltage readings were different (108/123) on the two legs of our 50A hookup. Today with fewer A/C's going, the readings were 116/122. Sites are generally north or south facing. Thus, you have a choice of easy Sat TV access or shade from trees. Since the cable works well, if possible, I would choose a north facing site with shade on a hot day. This place is expensive for what you get, but this is the going rate for parks in the area.

Agree with prior reviews. Still a Mom and Pop park. Nice and quiet when we visited at end of month. Wi-Fi isn't real strong in the area of the couple of 50 amp sites they have. Although we were able to log in with laptop, we couldn't get signal with iPad and phones. Our rate reflects a Passport America discount.

Enjoyed this park. Pretty quiet with a few kids running around. We didn't ask all the questions we should have when we checked in, so we didn't find out about garbage collection and the password to the wifi system until we had been there a day or so. Overall, a great experience. We did learn about breakfast at the nearby Sills Restaurant. Absolutely fabulous, but go early--it's terribly busy!

Date of Stay:

Owners/staff very friendly and attentive. Facilities seem to be well taken care of. Would like better Wi-Fi access in outer sites. Entrance/exit roads in park a little confusing. However, we enjoyed this park more than many other KOAs we have stayed at.

For the price, we were disappointed. Only spot in town since other park was chock full of longterm campers. Our site was not level...wheels came off ground when trying to level our 36' MH. Even though office said site was a 65' pull-thru, we didn't feel safe leaving toad attached because of all the traffic. Couldn't get DTV for the trees. Cable TV picture was fuzzy and very hard to watch. Decided to move on down the road even though we could have stayed longer.

Date of Stay:

This place was much cooler with the shade from its trees than the Bonanza Casino asphalt lot we tried before settling here. There is some road noise as the nearby intersection is a major one for trucks headed south on Hwy. 95. Not terribly objectionable though. AT&T worked ok. 30a power was good. Ground was relatively level. Drive slowly as there are some sandy areas near sites. Other than one tent, we were only people in campground. FWIW...the reg. board is just south of the dump station. We didn't notice it when driving in.

Date of Stay:

Previous reviewer covered all the main points. People were very friendly. DTV with our dome worked from pull through sites. Only negative was scrapping the rear end of the MH on the way out of the park. No apparent damage, but sounded pretty loud. Would stay here again.

Appears new? Owners are starting to fix park up. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. Park appears to have a lot of long termers and are adding several cabins. Sites are very tight with poles protecting power pedestals obstructing turns into sites. Entry into park is pretty tight especially when obstructed by random parked cars. We had a couple problems during our visit. Power issues that didn't get fixed correctly the first time. Sprinkler system also sprayed water all over rig and car. Although the water wasn't too hard, it did leave spots everywhere. Not sure we would return, especially if normal rate is $60 per night.

Second visit to this park over 10 years. Not much has changed. Nice view of river from front row. Relaxing location. Great place to hang out midweek. Lots of fishermen on weekends. Manager was nice, but park could use a little work. Sewer dump is a little inconvenient to use. Short road leading to campground from Hwy 97 is pretty dusty. Would stay here again.
