Very quiet park, some grass & shade to walk dog. Very friendly people running park. 15-30 miles from nearly everything. Perfect place for some down time.

Date of Stay:

I hate to give this park a bad review, because the owner is SO nice, but this place is in sad shape. Entrance/exit is easy, but road to park is narrow and very bumpy. Interior roads are dirt and confusing, sites are a bit too close. Lots of places to walk the dog, but tons of burrs. WiFi good, cell reception (Verizon) weak, sat dish setup ok, no cable but antenna can receive a few stations. Pool looked inviting. Nighttime mosquitoes were abundant.

This KOA has a breathtaking view! Easy entrance/exit, interior dirt/gravel roads wide and easy to drive. Spaces are long and adequately wide, with grass in-between. WiFi and cable both very good, sat setup good. The main thing, though, is that view. It's incredible.

Beautiful, quiet little park, with lots of grass, and the nicest owners you'd ever want to meet. Entrance/exit easy, interior dirt/gravel roads easy to drive. WiFi very good, cable so so, set-up sat dish ok. Sites are adequately wide. Make sure you take advantage of the breakfast, as it was DELICIOUS and quite inexpensive.

Entrance/exit easy, and wide interior dirt/gravel roads. Check-in was quick. Sites are long, with grass in-between. Right on freeway so some road noise, but not too bad. Dog walk right on busy street with no fencing, but walking dog around park is fine. All in all, nice park.

Date of Stay:

Nice park overall. Entrance/exit are good, but a little tight to maneuver through park. Sites are long and wide enough. Space between sites is grassy, nice and shady (but ok for sat dish), and dog run is fantastic! However, there is no walkway from the back rows to the restrooms, laundry, or pool, so sites B3, B4, and B5 become public walkways, with people walking through your site at all hours of day and night. Office staff is nice, and check-in was fast.

What a beautiful little park. Well manicured long sites (gravel and dirt pad), with enough room in between (grass). Picnic table, bbq, and firepit all at the site. Wifi is ok, but cell reception (Verizon) great. Easy access to park and within park. Beautiful green views all around. Close to Summit Lake. A great place to just relax!

Would've given this park a 10, but no 50 amp (we had to reset breaker in middle of night with only 1 a/c on), and a $2/night "pet fee". However, this was a small inconvenience considering the view. Absolutely beautiful. Pull-thru sites have back-in sites in between, and if all sites were filled, the spots would be Very narrow. But, they space people out in the pull-thrus (when they can), which makes for a roomy site. Even though trees throughout park, free-standing sat dish can be set up. Speedy WiFi and good cell phone (Verizon). Right off the I-94. Easy in and out, dirt interior roads, but low dust. Freeway noise, but you forget about it when looking at the pristine view. Would definitely stop here again.

Nice park, but close to shooting range. For 2 days during the daylight hours, loud continuous "pops" were going off. Not relaxing at all. Lake and beach were nice, but you can't see them from the campground. No real area for dogs (they charge $5 extra for a dog), and they must stay within a certain area when being walked.

Road to park has overhanging trees, but they've been "trimmed" by previous RV's. Dirt sites and roads make for dirty rigs, and the trees over the sites drop tons of stuff onto roof and awnings. Quite a few creepy-crawlies too, but all that's to be expected in the woods. However, the sites are very large, and the pond and grass areas are very nice. Very quiet area. Owners are extremely nice and helpful. Wifi excellent. Only a handful of sites can put up a dish (due to the trees). No cable, but could get a few channels with antenna. Phone service (Verizon) good.

Date of Stay:

Easy in/out of park as well as the sites. Fairly wide sites with grass in between, but not very long. We couldn't fit in the assigned spot, but there were plenty of other spots to choose from. Nice store with souvenirs as well as necessities. Large dog park, but the grass is so tall we were afraid of ticks. Park is undergoing construction, so noisy trucks from early in a.m. and no cable, but the over-air channels come in very clear. Also some road noise from the nearby freeway. Wi-Fi works great. Park has bus stop for Metro bus, and is close to Metro station. Close to grocery store. Sight-seeing orientation provided every day, as well as Metro instructions. Café on site, and pool area looks beautiful. Tons of employees to answer all your questions.

Date of Stay:

Right on the Ohio River. Tugs pushing barges through the night are noisy, but the view is worth it. No phone service (Verizon) to speak of. Gravel and dirt sites are large. Wide interior roads, but road into park is Very Narrow. No way 2 RV's could pass.

Date of Stay:

Nice and safe for East St. Louis. Had a beautiful view of the Gateway Arch and downtown St. Louis. Good WiFi. Shuttle drivers were friendly and quick to respond. Close to Metro station. Nearby train tracks are very noisy. Website pics are NOT correct--weed-strewn gravel between sites, not grass. Paved roads and site. Easy in/out. Look for RV Park Mini Mart sign.

Date of Stay:

Entire park is gravel with trees, easy in/out of park, Wifi was excellent and so was cable, sites are long and wide, didn't experience the dust that other reviewers spoke about, girl at check-in desk was plesant. The problem with this park is its proximity to a truck yard (noisy trucks all day long, including the constant back-up beeping), and to a race track for modifieds--nighttime races are so noisy, you can't hear much else, and the races go on until after midnight. Probably won't stop here again due to the noise issue.

Wonderful, beautifully-manicured park with LONG cement pads (plenty of room for our 35-foot 5th wheel and truck). Good Wifi and cable. Large patio with large picnic table. Waste can at each site. Lots of grassy areas to walk the dog with no thorns, but no off-leash area. Definitely some road noise. Confusing entry (enter thru parks' main entrance), but wide roads. That being said, the park was quiet because it was closed. When the park is open, I'm sure that the screams from the nearby roller coasters will change the atmosphere dramatically.
