We checked in late (11PM). It was very easy to do the self-service check in. With it being late and out of season, you were pretty much on your own. The park was immaculate though, quiet (other than the combine harvesting corn LOL) and a great place for a quick in and out for the night. Flowers were planted at each campsite and while not spacious as others have mentioned, it was fun for a place to hook up, rest, and feel safe and clean. The only complaint would be when you pull up to check in, you are beyond the turn for the overnight spaces. That was a little dicey to either go all the way around the campground in very dark conditions or back up in the dark. But I would definitely stay here again as it was perfect and right off the interstate (but 1/2 mile so no highway noise). We camped at Interstate RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground was very very nice. It was exceptionally clean. It is close to Okoboji area and offers many recreational things to do around the grounds. The campground itself is on a lake and has a fishing pier. Nearby is both Spirit Lake and Okoboji. There was a general store on site that had reasonable prices and was open late. We had a huge pull-thru site that was rock and gravel and grass. The older sites had a poured cement patio at each site. We had a huge field in front of our RV which made it very nice for the kids to run around. The pool was small, but clean. I would definitely go back as this was a lovely campground with a very friendly staff. The only negatives to it were a bit excessive rules such as not being allowed out of your campsite after dark, no in and out of the campground after 10PM (which was ridiculous) and no driving in the campground after dark. We camped at Cenla RV Park and Campground in a Motorhome.

I am only rating this a '2' due to somewhere out there, there must be something worse. This campground was a mess. From the other replies, I see that I am not alone on this assessment. The sites are very unlevel and rock and grass. Trees are in desperate need of trimming overhead. The hookups were rusty and the voltage was very low. We couldn't run 2 airconditioners at the same time. The worst part of this campground was the high amount of permanent campers there. It is clearly their main business and the clientele they cater to is, frankly, scary. Imagine 5th-wheels and trailers in very bad shape with large propane tanks in front along with junk from about 3 years of living on the front porch. Make-shift decks, rotted out cars abound. In a word, this campground was grungy. There was no security to speak of and the highway noise was very loud. We thought there had to be a race track behind the trees, it was so loud. The one plus was that our site was on the end and rather large. They have wristbands that they require you to wear while camping. We were staying 3 nights to take our daughter to the Naval Academy for plebe summer and certainly weren't going to wear paper wristbands all week. We would definitely never go back there. We camped at Adventure Bound Camping Resorts - Washington DC in a Motorhome.
