Rate reflects Golden Age. The park is located outside of Yellowstone and its main drawback is that you will need to drive about 20 miles before you get to the action. If you choose to stay here, leave early to do your driving as it seems most people in the park sleep in until about 10:00 AM. After that time, the roads are crowded. The sites are all dirt as well as the roads, so you will have dust. The NPS has suspended having Rangers give talks at this camp, so you will need to go into Yellowstone or Grand Tetons to hear them.

This is basically a open field with water and electric hook ups. The RV hook ups are around the edge of a large sloping field. The sites are grass and not level. It is OK for an overnight stay, but there are no facilities. I would not stay here again.

We found this campground while passing through Macon. It is close to the interstate and makes a great overnight stop. We were able to store our 5th wheel for a few days in a parking lot, while we explored Atlanta, thus avoiding trying to find a park in Atlanta. The parks only drawback I thought was that some of the sites are not level and require using boards to level the RV.

Most all that needs to be said about the park has been said in previous writings. The location is easy to find if you check the reference map. I found the directions in the PA book were hard to understand. We were given a spot near the rear under an old railroad bridge. W/E no sewer. It is a convenient location to stay to visit downtown Little Rock. If you are staying more than overnight, it might be worth the extra $10 to get a site on the river so you can enjoy the night lights of Little Rock. We will come back.

Very nice COE park. Only negative is that it is a ways off the Hwy to use as an overnight stop. Takes about 10 minutes from the exit. There is a very nice bike / walkway along the river that is available to campers. We would stay here again.

This is more like a low budget camping resort than a RV park. Most of the sites have permanent RVs parked and the it appears that short timers are used as fill ins on less desirable spaces. There is a steep gravel road to reach the park and you need to be sure that your vehicle is sized correctly. Bath houses are very clean. We would not stay here again as an overnight location due to the difficulty of the entrance road.

This is a small city campground in S/E Iowa. It is well worth stopping and spending a day to visit the Amish / Mennonite communities in the area. The sites are all gravel and fairly level.

Date of Stay:

As previous reported: this is basically a gravel parking area with hook ups. The Wi-Fi is an extra charge. It is very convenient to I-85. We were parked next to the bath house. There are no extras in the park such as pool or recreation rooms. It is an alternative to Wal-Mart with hook ups. It is walking distance to several restaurants. It is the most convenient to Atlanta.

The location is about 10 miles north of I-74. It is easy to locate following the directions in the PA book. The sites are gravel or sand and require some leveling. The showers are located in the double wide trailer they use for an office. Be sure to ask for a key as they keep the door locked. The owner and crews are working to update the sites and are pouring concrete slabs and upgrading power to 50 amps. They will provide 50 to 30 amp adapters if needed for a deposit of $25.00. We would stay here again if passing through.

Date of Stay:

They have raised the rates since the last review. They have both 30 and 50 amp power available, but you should check the sites before hooking up to determine what is at your site. Water pressure is strong, so use a regulator. The showers are located in the bathrooms near the theater. We were able to see the play and have dinner. The play was great, the meal was OK. It is a very quiet location and is close to the Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill. We will make sure to visit the park again in the future.

We found this park in the Passport America guide. It is located near the Interstate, yet because it is behind a ridge you cannot hear the traffic noise. It is very clean and as mentioned, has wonderful management. They have a number of full time campers so they are able to maintain a high quality of maintenance. We will stay here again and recommend it to our fellow campers. If you have a big rig ask for a spot south of the pool area.

We stayed here on a Holiday weekend and it was busy. We came with a second couple and were able to get pull through sites in an off water loop. On non-holiday weeks, you can drive up with out reservations and most likely find a location on the water. Nice thing is that you can tie your boat off next to your site if you are on the water. All sites have fire rings and tables with a large gravel area where you can set up a shelter on. We will come here in the future.

I agree with the previous reviews. We also had called ahead and were met by the Hosts. The sites are on grass and when there is rain, they do hold the water. Because of the sand base, the water does drain well when the rain stops. They are adding gravel as revenues allow. They have a very nice recreation room with kitchen, fridge, a book exchange and satellite TV. There are several long term campers on site and they are located to the side away from sites used for travelers. There is a fishing lake about 2.5 miles from the camp where you can fish for $4.00 a day. We will use this as an overnight in the future.

This was a overnight stop and the site we had was on gravel. They do have concrete sites. We had to use leveling blocks. One of the two bathhouses and showers was just being repaired from recent floods and while they were clean, the showers did not have shower curtains and the dressing areas were not private. The second one was OK and the water was hot. They do have a swimming beach and numerous tent camping sites.

This park is located about 11 miles from the French Quarter on the West bank. Has very quiet sites on the north end. The South end has some boat traffic noise. From I-10 use the Business 90 route and come west through New Orleans and Westwego. Do not try to cross the Huey P. Long bridge as it is under repair and has only one lane open: very tight. All sites are paved and level. The park is recovering from Katrina and most of the trees are small as the big ones were damaged by the storm. Rates reflect Golden Age discount as the pass is honored in all of Louisiana's State Parks.
