The RV campground is called Gander Bay Trailer Area, a beautiful wooded park on 158-acre Dawson Lake, all located on Moraine View State Park. Sites are spacious, although not particularly level in some cases. There are also two other tent campsites, an equestrian campground and a group campground at this state park, as well as numerous picnic areas. Our 30-amp electric pedestal was not working properly, so we couldn't operate our AC, but we made do for the one night we were there.

This is a fine little county campground, located about 3 miles NE of Stevens Point, just off Hwy 66. Beautiful location on a 271-acre county park, just across the road from 85-acre Jordan Pond and the Plover River. Excellent fishing. It has 22 sites with electric, but no water or sewer hookups. Also has 3 tent sites on co-located island. Cost is $15.00/night, but electric costs $5.00/night. Park is open from May 1st to October 31st. Paved roads in one large circle. All sites are back-in except for one pull-through. Heavily wooded. Big rig accessible with care. Shower house is moderately clean. Our only complaint was the excessive highway noise from close-by Hwy 66.

Beautiful heavily-wooded park in the WI north woods, located on Jack lake, about 12 miles north of Antigo. Access roads are paved. Very curvy and somewhat difficult to maneuver into sites with a large rig. Jack lake allows only electric trolling motors, so it's very quiet. Great fishing. Camping is 1st come/1st serve. Pets are welcome in the campground, but not in the adjoining park. New bath/shower house with pay showers. Electric only RV sites. Water is available at entry, as is sewer dump, which costs $5.00 for registered guests. Many miles of hiking/biking trails, which joint up to WI Ice Age Trail. Firewood, ice, bait sales, boat rentals, beach, playground, volleyball/basketball courts. Verizon works fairly well here, even in the woods. Overall, an excellent county park.

This is a great little city RV park, located on the side of an immaculately kept city park on the edge of River Falls. Only 15 sites, but all paved and nicely angled back-ins. No water or sewer, but all have 30 amp electric, and sites 7,8, and 9 have 50 amp. Restrooms and shower are available on the edge of the park as part of the city park. Lots of activities to do in the city park, i.e. disc golf course, large playground, skateboard park, ball fields, soccer fields, walking/running paths. RV park is open all year on a first come-first serve basis. Max 2 week stay. Honor box pay system. Park is located just off Hwy 65 on Division Street, but traffic noise is minimal. A real gem of a city park.

A very nice, picturesque park in a wonderful lakeside setting. Many sites right on the water. Park needed some maintenance after the winter; restrooms hadn't been cleaned in a while. Narrow internal paved access roads. All sites are grass, which could be a problem when it's very wet like it is in April. Very few sites are level and few sites available for big rigs. Good fishing access.

Date of Stay:

Nice small campground. One camping loop with nicely angled back-in's and three pull-thru's. We were the only RV there; even the camphost was gone for a few days. Very nice setting; large trees and grassy sites, but very wet since the park is set in the Missouri River bottomlands. Access road (Hwy 122) to the park is a little narrow, rough and twisty. Park access roads are very narrow, but all paved. Good hiking trails, with much Missouri Indian history emphasized. We were told by a local that mosquitoes are a real problem in the summer, but not while we were there in April.

Date of Stay:

We stayed at the RV park that advertised electric sites. The park as a whole was clean and moderately well kept. Most of the sites weren't very level, and most were quite short. We used a pull-thru, but most of these were too curved, and difficult to arrange a big rig in without hitting shrubbery or trees. Only some of the sites had water. There are two loops, but only one was open. Reserved sites with a green placard could be used for one night only without reservations.

Date of Stay:

This is a well-kept campground in a desert area, hence it is well-used by the locals. There are actually two campgrounds; one above the dam, the other below the dam on the river. We stayed at the one below the dam, which has much more shade. Pull thru's were long and level. Easy access to the river. This was spring break for the schools, so all sites were full, but the sites are far enough apart so the noise level wasn't bad. Camp host was helpful, as were the park rangers.

Date of Stay:

This is a great little county park off Hwy 83, about 6 miles north of Wellington. Very friendly, helpful camp host. Pull-thru's are long and level. $10 for 30 amp; $15 for 50 amp. There isn't a shower house, only restrooms that are part of the attached rest area on the side closest to the highway. Covered picnic tables, short walk to the river, 2 picnic pavilions, honor box for fees if host is unavailable. 3 day limit if no reservations are made. Moderate highway noise. Great stop-over park, moderately priced.

I agree with the last post. Great place for an overnight. Gas is MUCH cheaper across the bridge in Arizona, almost a dollar a gallon cheaper. Clean, spacious restroom/showers. Level gravel pull-through or back-in sites with very large concrete patios. Not many seasonals here yet, but many unoccupied RV's waiting for them. I-40 is 4 miles away, so no noise from there. Trucks use Rt 99, but very little noise. Clean laundry facilities and nice rec room. 106 degrees in September!!!!

Date of Stay:

Great park for an overnight stay. Easy access from I-5 or 99. Eliminates the need to go through Bakersfield. All sites are pull through and extra long. Our truck, 38' 5'er and an extra car all fit nicely in the site. Didn't use the cable TV, although available. Over 35 channels with the antennae. Good Verizon phone and Wi-Fi signal. Didn't use the park Wi-Fi, although available. Due to a recent fire, no showerhouse, bathrooms or laundry were available. New facilities being worked on. We'll stay here again if we pass through this area.

Date of Stay:

This park is all right for an overnight stop, but I wouldn't want to stay here very long. It's just off I-5, and the traffic noise is quite loud. The sites are mostly small, side-by-side types, with very little room between them. There were a surprising number of people "living" in their RV's here, with sheds, decks, swamp coolers, etc, and some of them are pretty shabby and tacky. Showerhouse is large and clean. Speed bumps are aptly named. You don't want to go over them faster than an extreme crawl.

This is a nice small resort, but it needs a little TLC. Everything seems just a little faded, although all the cabins seems to have been recently painted, with some new picnic tables. The RV park is very small, with only 2 pull-through's, and 6-7 back-in's. Tough to turn a big rig around in it. Good Wi-Fi, and free cable TV (only 10 channels, but there's no other TV). Verizon didn't work here. Nice hot tub spa and group fire pit, with free firewood provided for it. Campfires can be had at individual sites, but only in fire tubs provided (which are the inside tubs of old washing machines. These work very well for campfires). The main attraction for this park is its location, right on old Hwy 101 (Ave of the Giants). Superb location to view some of the greatest ancient redwoods. Priced a little high, but big rigs won't fit in any of the CA state parks.

Date of Stay:

Great park and reasonably priced. Access roads are a little narrow. Good variety of site sizes. Great view of the ocean from the day use area. No access to beach from the park, but it's an easy 1/2 mile walk from the gate. Camp hosts very helpful.

Date of Stay:

Nice park, but the access roads are narrow and the trees haven't been trimmed in a long time, and are much too close to the roads. I scratched the side of my rig badly trying to get in/out of my site. Great access to the beach on paved hiking/biking trails. Close proximity to many local attractions, especially downtown historical Newport. Very busy CG, even in mid-Sep.
