What a gem! $15 for a campsite! Wow! The only way we found this campground was with RVParkReviews, and we're glad we did! It's very small, only 10 sites, but we called ahead and he said he'd save a site for us. We had to ask for the address (1433 Burks Branch Road), and Google Maps found it. The park is lovely with a small fishing lake, lots of grass, a nice playground, and pedal boats for rent. The sites have concrete pads which are very short, but we managed to get all the wheels on it. We just parked our tow vehicle on the asphalt in front. As someone else mentioned, the manager's house is the office and it reeks of cigarette smoke, but he was helpful. The bathrooms are pretty rustic, but they are clean and there's plenty of hot water. There's no wifi, but I had a good enough Verizon signal, and I can buy a lot of data with the money we saved here!

This is definitely "black top" camping, but the views and location are great! The drive to it is pretty scary with a rig towing a car, but trust Google Maps to get you through the turns in town. You drive through the Canal Park district and over the Aerial Lift Bridge to get there, and turn onto a tiny road. Stop at the marina office and they will show you where to go. A very nice young woman checked us in. All sites are back-in, and you have to back out from the water/electric sites when you leave. We enjoyed the view of the city and the bridge, and it's definitely a different kind of camping. Wifi worked pretty well. The bathroom/showers are in a small trailer, but work OK. There's lots of clanging of the masts and chains and some boat and train horns, but we slept through most of it. There are a couple of patches of grass to walk dogs.

This is a very small campground, which I only located through this website! It's a huge grassy area with some trees and a nice creek. There are some low branches on the drive that need to be trimmed, and some of the turf is soft after a rain, so I don't think I'd stay here when it might be wet. I didn't use their bathroom, but my husband did, and he said his was pretty dirty. There's a small, old building with one small room each for men and women. The owners were friendly. Easy off and on the highway. No wifi, but OK Verizon signal for data. Good place for overnight.

This is a nice, small campground right in the small town of Washburn and on Lake Superior. Some of the sites overlook the lake. We made reservations online, and there is one campground section for those who made online reservations. When you make your reservation, you have to pick a site, but it tells you nothing about that site...just if it's available for your date. Some of the sites are pretty small and some are not very level. These have electric, but no water or sewer. The sites that can be reserved are the ones in the woods. The wifi is fantastic...the fastest we've ever had in a campground! The bathrooms are typical campground and adequate. The showers are 25 cents for 3 minutes. My water took almost a minute to get hot. But since the camping rate is low, I didn't consider that a problem! They had some sort of festival the weekend before we got here and we were told that the place was packed, so if you want to come in late July, check for whatever event is going on here.

The last reviews on this campground are from two years ago, so I thought I'd give a refresher. The comments of the reviewers from July of 2014 are still accurate. The manager was very friendly and helpful. You definitely need a map to get around this campground with all its sections. There are lots of seasonals, but we were assigned one of the LONG (at least 100') pull-throughs in the upper section. It has gorgeous grass, but no bathrooms or wifi in this section. The landscaping company still cranks up at dawn and is dumping gravel or something into trucks. Definitely use the back entrance off highway 70 beside the landscaping business, but it doesn't take you by the office to register. The bathrooms are dated, but very functional. The showers have great shower heads with good hot water and there are several hooks for hanging.

Extremely friendly owner. This is nothing fancy, and most of the people here have boats and are here for the fishing...lots of seasonals. We had a shady back-in with W&E. The Wifi was excellent. The campground is really close to the lovely town of Algoma. There's lots of grass and I got permission to let my dog play frisbee in the field.

This our go-to overnight campground as we head west. We have not used it to do the tourist stuff in Pigeon Forge. It is nicely laid out with concrete pads. We use a pull-through, although there are lots of lovely river-front back-in sites. The staff is friendly and efficient. The bathrooms look new and are spotless. We were in the section with trees and good shade, which was nice since it was hot. Fortunately there is a stoplight at the intersection of the main highway into town...otherwise it would be hard to make a left turn to head back to the interstate.

This is another campground that stretches the term "resort".....and they even charge a "resort fee" of $4 for every night's stay! On top of that, showers cost 25 cents for 5 minutes! The majority of the many sites are seasonals, but most of them are nicely kept. We knew our site would only have electricity and water for the PA rate, but when we got to our assigned site, the power box was at least 50 feet away! When we looked around, we noticed that all of the utilities were randomly placed, and most were not at all convenient. There were only a few sites that could accommodate us, and our unit is only 33 feet. Many are not level. All of the power boxes are shared. They let us move, but I would hate to be there on a weekend when there were no other choices of sites. If you reserve a site here, be prepared to use extension cords and/or multiple hoses. The wooded area is attractive, and the pools look nice. The people across from us had booked through Thousand Trails, and supposedly had a sewer site, but theirs did not. There were no other sites with sewer, so they left. I saw another reviewer on TripAdvisor tell the same story. Almost all the sewer sites are for permanents.

I have mixed feelings about this campground. I don't consider it a "resort" by any means, but they have a door marked "banquet hall" and apparently have events there. There are branches of the Mississippi all around the campground, so many people have boats moored near the campsites, and many sites are seasonal. There are no sewer connections at all, probably because of potential floods, and there's a honey wagon for long-term folks. Since there are over 600 sites, I was amazed that there is only one bathroom with only 4 showers! They weren't really dirty, but they are very dated and there was water everywhere from so much use. They had put a bucket of sand for cigarettes INSIDE the bathroom and it smelled like smoke! (I moved it outside!) We saw two port-a-potties in a second section of the campground. They advertise cable, but the sign said it's not working, which seems to be routine, since another reviewer said the same thing 2 years ago! And, the only Wi-Fi was at the office. My phone just barely had enough signal for data. That said, it's an attractive campground with lots of trees...just really crowded in the summer. And, it's close to the city.

This campground is a hidden gem! We moved to this one, since our first one is Custer could only give us 3 nights over the July 4 holiday, and we were so glad we moved! It is small and secluded and is run by a lovely, friendly couple. The campsites are gravel with lush grass all around. We could watch the deer gather in the field below every evening, and some of them wandered through the campground. The bathhouses are immaculate. The Wi-Fi is typical "campground speed", but I had a great Verizon signal for data. There are several nice cabins for rent here, too.

We enjoyed our stay here with one exception. Their Wi-Fi was barely usable, even when I sat beside the office, and I could not get a Verizon cell signal that would support data, so I felt very disconnected, since I use my computer for all my trip planning. I even had to ride down the road toward town to have a good phone conversation! Other than that, this is a nice park. It is on a pretty steep hill and the sites are terraced. They have nice grass, and the bathrooms are good. Owners are friendly and work hard to keep the place looking nice.

We saw the reviews online and decided to try it, since there aren't a lot of choices in the area. Prices in Jackson are sky-high! This is a former mobile home park that the owner is converting to accommodate RV's. But, he wants mainly seasonal people, so you'd better call ahead to see if he has any spaces. Also, there is no office, so he has to know you're coming and be there to meet you. I would consider this a "back-yard" campground. There are a few sites along the driveway and a couple out back. There are full hookups, but no bathrooms or any other amenities. No Wi-Fi or cable or picnic table. There's a little grass around and a few trees, but we didn't have any shade. The mosquitoes were bad. He had just had the electric post put into our site, and the power kept cutting off, so we had issues there, but we got it working.

We really enjoyed our 5 days here! It's not fancy, but is very clean and has everything we needed. The staff is super friendly. The gravel sites vary a lot in size, but they will find one that fits your rig. The entrance is sort of hard to find since you turn in on "Alley Way", which IS an alley and doesn't look like it would go anywhere. The owner is trying to work on his "curb appeal". But, the campground is a little oasis behind the stores. There's quite a bit of shade and a wonderful, grassy dog lot that my dogs loved! There's a fun, free miniature golf course. The campground is close to town and stores, and is conveniently located to lots of great day-trips. The bathrooms are nice and clean, as is the laundry. ($2.50 for washer and $1.00 for dryers)

When we made our reservations, they only had back-in spots left, and that did fine for us. We parked our toad beside the RV. We watched some of the pull-in people struggle to get their truck/trailers or motorhomes/toads within the sites. Sites are all gravel with a little grass here and there. It's fun to see the train ride through the campground. The WiFi is very sporadic, as is the Verizon signal. Verizon changes from 3G to LTE and back, so my hotspot comes and goes, as does their WiFi. They advertise that they have cable, but she told me when I checked in that it doesn't work.

This campground is hard to rate since there are some really good points and some really bad ones. I think the owners are struggling to make it work and don't really know what they are doing. We had read that the reservation system had problems, and we found that to be true. We rode by the campground on Memorial Day weekend to make our reservation the next week and paid for the first night. When we arrived after the holiday, the only person who knew how the "system" (a bunch of sheets of paper) worked wasn't there, so we had to wait almost two hours for them to figure out where to put us! I heard someone say that whoever happened to answer the phone wrote things down in a different place. So, beware that they may mess up your reservation. The campground is just dirt and gravel, but that's pretty much expected in this part of the country. The utilities were fine. I tried to take a shower and there was no hot water. The bathrooms were nasty from the holiday weekend, but they did clean them up promptly. Unfortunately on our second morning, there was a flood in the bathroom/laundry, and they had a major septic problem. We were at our campsite all afternoon and dealt with the sounds and smell of septic system pump-outs for hours. The dumpsters were overflowing from the weekend, and they don't get emptied until Thursday so they were unsightly. They have lots of washers and dryers which are $1.50 each. There is no Verizon cell service. Their WiFi works, but only at the office. We got a signal from our campsite which was one of the closest to the office, but I could only get it to work in the early morning or late at night. The best part is that it is so close to the east entrance to Zion, which is a MUCH better way to enter the park than at the congested west end. You do have to ride all the way through to get to the visitor center, but what a drive it is!
