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!

This campground costs a little more than we usually pay, but it was worth it! The views are spectacular! The whole grounds are gorgeous with nice landscaping and carefully thought-out layout. All the full hook-ups have concrete pads, and most have grills, fire rings, and picnic tables. The bathrooms are spotless. They have recycling in several places. You do have to pay $2 for a 15 min shower, but I'm sure that's because this is a swimming area that's open to the public. There are family bathrooms, so you can share the 15 minutes. Washers are $1.00 and dryers are 50 cents! The WiFi is a little spotty, but my Verizon MyWi worked fine. We loved out stay here!

This campground was a little different from anywhere else we have stayed, but we enjoyed our time there. We always take our showers in the campground bathrooms, and after I had made our reservations, we realized that they don't have a bathroom at all! All the sites have full hookups, so for the time being, you must use your own. I think there are plans to build a bathhouse. There's also no real "office", but we were greeted by a man on a golf cart as we drove in. They had already emailed us our site number, so they told us to pull in and they would register us when they could. Some of the sites are pretty short but we were fine. Some are gravel and some have concrete pads. It's in a valley with nice views of the surrounding mountains. We were invited to a pot-luck supper on our second night there. Don't miss the winding drive to Cataloochee Valley to see the elk herds, which has its entrance very near the campground.

This is an old campground which has been here for years, but it is very picturesque. It's very close to town and Chimney Rock Park. Most of this campground is set up for seasonals. They save a few sites on the river for transients. The interior roads are narrow and bumpy. I think a big rig would have trouble. The sites are pretty short, but we were fine in our 33' motorhome. There's a constant roar from the river, but it would be great for kids in the summer...huge boulders to climb on! The bathrooms have not been updated in years. We used the ones in the far section, and they were functional but very rustic.....but lots of hot water. Their reviews don't say they have WiFi, but they do, and it worked fine.

This is a lovely, well-kept park. It's near the interstate, but you don't get road noise. We called first and they said we didn't need a reservation since there were plenty of sites available, even on a Friday. (A reservation would have cost an added $3.) There's only one pull-through, which we got for the discounted senior rate of $15 plus tax. There are huge grassy fields, with the only downside being all the goose poop. Some of the sites are short, so be sure you tell them your length if you make a reservation. The trees over the inner roads could use a little trimming, since some small limbs were hitting the top of our RV on the way in.

Lovely setting on a small lake. We had a lakefront pull through site. Sites are gravel with grass around. Nice, fenced dog area. Bathrooms were clean with good hot water...new shower curtains (which the last reviewer said were needed!) Friendly owners. They provide a trash can for dog poop, which I always appreciate! WiFi worked fine.

This is a great place for a night or two....very clean and neat. It's right in the city and is next to their minor league ballpark and a marina. Sites are all pave & level, with nice grass around. We never saw a camp host...just picked a site and put our $20 in a slot. There is a train track right beside it, and several trains went by in the night and blew their horns at the crossing. They woke is up, but we went right back to sleep. There's lots of fast food within walking distance. There was a good WiFi signal from the marina which requires an access code, and the entry screen said that paying campers could get a voucher from the marina. I guess it was free. We had a good Verizon signal, so used my phone to tether. We didn't use the shower, but I looked in and they were not fancy, but very functional. Don't know about the hot water or shower heads.

This is a great place to stay to have Winnebago work done or to see the factory. It's small, quiet, and cheap! There's 50 amp electric, but no other utilities. There are dump stations. No WiFi, but good Verizon signal for tethering. We never saw anybody in charge...just put our money in the slot! I put "yes" for clean bathrooms.....but. They weren't awful but really could have used a good cleaning and some fresh paint. The showers looked like what I remember at camp as a kid. But there was lots of good, hot water and places to hang or put things. Some sites were kind of off-level, and the power boxes are in strange places. There's a golf course across the stream and an adjacent playground. We were very happy there!

We stayed here on a weekday night, so there were lots of empty sites. The office staff was very friendly and gave us choices of sites. There are no sewer connections, but they have three dump stations. We paid for a water & electric site on the waterfront. It's a lovely park with nice river views and is close to La Crosse for sightseeing.

We really enjoyed this park. It's a good base location to explore Sleeping Bear Dunes. Many of the folks camping there have a boat, and the grassy sites are plenty big for a camper, boat, and vehicle, I didn't see any big rigs, but our 33" motorhome had plenty of room. There's a biking trail that goes right beside the campground. The bathrooms were clean with good showers and good places to put your stuff. The town of Frankfort nearby is a gem! There's a small grill at the campground, but we didn't try it.

This is a very large, but beautifully maintained campground. The front area is shaded, and the sites are lush grass. Mostly pull-throughs. Lots of walking area, and convenient to stores. My only complaint is that there is almost no place to put your things in the showers. I had to use the handicapped one since it had a stool to put stuff on. There was only one hook and not even a soap dish! I think campground owners need to actually Use their showers to see if they are convenient to use! The shower heads were good with plenty of hot water.

This small, quiet campground is a great place for an overnighter, but all sites are back-in and no pull-throughs. We missed the entrance on the first pass since the sign is Very small. Plus Google Maps tried to send us down a side street. Look closely for the street number! The host was very nice and told us how to find a place to eat, and the best way to get back on the highway. This campground is part of a small village of a church assembly grounds. We wanted to walk around and see some of the quaint cottages, but it started pouring rain again just as we were starting out. Sites are grassy and shaded. Power is good...didn't hook up to water. We paid full price since we had let our PA expire.

Great little campground! Well-maintained lovely grounds. It is near the Interstate which means road noise, but easy to get to. Nice bathrooms. Showers could use more hooks. Great hot water. Wi-Fi only in cafe, but strong Verizon signal for MiFi. Great food in cafe in service station. Friendly folks running it. Big grassy area next to the soybean field where my dog could play Frisbee! Highly recommend!
