Lots of nice mature trees shade this KOA. We didn't use the pool (smallish); we did use the very nice, fenced dog run area. A rural setting, but easily accessed from the interstate. There is a stream, currently used by Canadian geese and their babies. The geese do not wander though the RV sites. Sites are gravel, relatively level; some (at an extra charge) have concrete patios which are very nice. There are two bathhouses with three stalls and 3 private showers for each gender. Fine at this time of year, but I wonder if that is sufficient for high season. NOTE: The bathhouse is not wheelchair accessible, although they have a "Disabled" sign on the smallest of the toilet stalls. (Yes, really!) Facilities for the ladies were clean and bright, although a bit 'elderly'. My husband said the men's area was not as clean.

Easily accessible from I-75. There is friendly, helpful staff. Bathhouse is kept scrupulously clean which is why we stop here anytime we drive through Georgia. There is a nice fenced area for the dogs, and they just added a little wading pool to help with the summer heat. Wi-Fi was down when we arrived, but they were working on solving the problem. Price was PPA.

This park does not have pull-through spaces. It does; however, have beautiful level concrete pads, lots of grass, and most sites have water views. There is a marina and a Bait & Tackle Shop on site. The bathhouse is terrific - new and sparkly clean. Camp host is friendly and helpful. It is a bit out of the way, but it is quiet and peaceful, with trees lining the river/lake and grass kept up beautifully. We have already booked another stay on our way back south. Note - this isn't a "destination" CG unless you are into boating and fishing. The lack of the usual 'destination amenities' is actually an attraction to us.

Very well laid out park. They save the front spaces for short term guests as most of the area is taken by long term RV's. The concrete pads are very long and wide and level. This CG would have had a higher rating except for the fact there are only two facilities (combination toilet and shower rooms) which seemed to be constantly occupied. Showers were moldy, shower curtain was moldy, overall the washroom could have been cleaner. Lovely large shade trees over the pad which were greatly appreciated as it was HOT when we arrived.

We arrived just a bit after closing, but the RV Dealer came out and told us to just pay the next morning. He suggested some sites that might suit us best. Very friendly and helpful chap. This is a new CG and would benefit greatly from grass, but I am sure that will be added with time. Unfortunately the night we stayed here, there was a problem that closed the bathroom and showers. We were impressed that they had requested service to repair the problem at night, but the area was still not functional the next morning. If your GPS can't find the location (ours couldn't), the CG is located across from the exit with the Shoney's. Sorry, can't remember the exit number (either 205 or 208) but it is the middle exit of the 3 exits for Clanton.

Very clean, well maintained CG. Gravel sites which are extremely narrow, especially for those with slides. Beautiful grassy areas for dogwalking (beware of what looks like an electrified fence separating the CG from the field behind it). Helpful CG host. We would stay here again.

Our rate was based on having a Player's Card. Well maintained, well patrolled CG. The showers do sting a bit. They are metered so you have to keep re-starting to get more water, but there isn't a charge. Friendly taxi service by the patrol squad to and from the casino. We would definitely stay here again.

Near the reception desk is a whiteboard giving the weather conditions. The staff is very helpful, even giving us a couple of biscuits for our dogs! Very professionally managed! There is a good fenced dog run and the steak restaurant was reasonable (slow service but the food was good). This CG would have had a 10, given the large clean washrooms, etc., if I hadn't needed to do laundry. I was amazed to see the dryers were only $1.00, until I learned that was for only 10 minutes!! They were not efficient either. The laundry room is outstanding: there is a table for folding clothes, an iron and ironing board and a game table with a jigsaw puzzle on it, to pass those multiple 10 minute cycles when you need to add another dollar! We would definitely stay here again, but wouldn't plan to do laundry while here!

Can't comment on the washrooms. Saw where they were on the park map, but there were no indicators on the building itself that we could find. Many long term stay vehicles including a mobile home without siding. Decent dogwalking area (no enclosed run, though). Perhaps because of the time of year, there were no bison in the field, although you could see them in a muddy stockyard. I agree with other reviewers that this might be a fun stay for a family in the summer. We would personally look elsewhere though.

This is the only CG we visited without first checking the reviews here. We had planned to stay in Custer SD, but temps there were dropping and we decided to just travel on. This is close to the interstate, but we didn't notice any noise. The camp hosts were exceptionally friendly and chose a site where they thought we would have the best WiFi reception. The washrooms and laundry rooms were spotlessly clean. Nice grassy area for dogwalking, but the RV sites were close to each other and not totally level. (We are small, so we usually do find level ground easily). We would stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Very clean showers, rather small but very nice. Clean laundry facility. We were here in the non-existent spring this area was experiencing. It was 20 degrees colder than normal, and rainy and I'm trying not to let that affect my rating. I agree with the previous reviewer who said this is not at all a pretty area with the large grain silos and railroad tracks. Sites are gravel, some more level than others. We only spent one night here. This is a great base for touring the beautiful, incredible Badlands and we would return for that or a one night stop while passing through.

I'm torn on how to rate this CG. We were out of season, and found the 'store' to be primarily full of liquor choices. The snack bar was closed. To be handed a small 'goody' bag of travel items at check in was a surprise: a very nice touch. The washrooms were exceptionally clean: however only one shower stall didn't have peeling paint on the floor and none of the stalls had a lip, which combined with a short shower curtain made the floor outside the shower damp. We quite liked the privacy of a large bathroom (toilet, sink, shower stall) but there were only six stalls for an area that could easily hold 100 plus RV's. Only a few sites were open (it was a tough winter up here and most were still winterized) and one of the light poles near the bathhouse was broken and down on the ground. There are two good sized dog runs: one for larger dogs, one for smaller. Absolutely terrific, with pick-up bags right on the fences, but the runs also had a lot of rabbit or gopher holes and I kept hoping neither of our dogs would break a leg running around the enclosure. The laundry was super clean, but only two washers and two dryers. The washers were exceptionally small: the type I had in apartments in Europe. We weren't bothered by any traffic noise, but in early May there just wasn't any traffic either!! The grounds are nice, with statuary placed here and there. We would definitely stay here again out of season but would definitely avoid it in season, due to what is undoubtedly a shortage of showers available when the Park has more than a handful of RV's. We are in a RoadTrek 210P, so showers are important to us (we have one, but it is very small and has to be rigged up). Just a strange CG, for every plus there is an offset somewhere else.

Ogallala is a pleasant little town. We visited the Pony Express Station they have here. The CG host was friendly, no traffic noise that we noticed, but I'll admit we generally sleep pretty soundly after a day of travel. We would definitely stay here again in our Road Trek 210V.

Date of Stay:

We were here mid-week and didn't even notice a stock car track. We were out of season so the restaurant wasn't open. Laundry room was clean as were the bathrooms. Good dogwalking. Nothing really special, but nothing bad either. We would stay here again in our Road Trek 210V.

We were very disappointed in this State Park. Granted, we were here out of season; however the state of the washrooms at Soldier's Creek (and the lack of washrooms at Red Cloud) would have put us off at anytime. There were also ants' nests everywhere, making it so difficult to safely walk the dogs that we pulled out a day ahead of time. I was also a mite put off by the extremely one-sided view of history presented in the historical hand-outs. For example, "Crazy Horse was killed while resisting arrest." Come on guys, Crazy Horse was stabbed in the back by a trooper!! I am not a native American, but this Park echoed with sorrow.
