Our rate reflects Passport America.  This is a well maintained campground in a very quiet desert setting. The lady at check-in was friendly and helpful. Entry is paved but the interior roads and sites are gravel. Our site was a spacious and level pull through; big rig access was good. Plenty of space for our towed, so no need to unhook for a one night stopover. There was a wonderful view of the mountains, but our motorhome faced the wrong way, such a shame!  Bathrooms were a lovely southwest style but the tiny laundry was old, dirty and needed a major makeover, only 3 machines and one was broken. Pet friendly. Wi-Fi and cell were good. There are a couple of local food stores and restaurants in town and the historic Gage Hotel is well worth a visit. We would stay here again, it's not a destination resort but perfect for a one night stopover.

This is a well maintained campground with friendly and helpful staff at check-in. Road and pads were gravel. We had a spacious and level pull-through, big rig access was good. Easy on and off 1-10, and Pilot is just on the corner. Plenty of space for our towed, so no need to unhook just for a one night stopover. There were a few shade trees and some grass, which had the usual Texas stickers in them. The bathrooms were old but clean, however the ladies did have a large ugly hole in the ceiling! The laundry was small but adequate. Pet friendly with a dog run, but no pick up bags. Wi-Fi was slow but cell was okay. There is a small KOA Kafe on site. They serve breakfast and dinner, nothing fancy, but very welcome after a long day on the road. We would stay here again. This campground was surprisingly quiet, and we appreciated the host allocating sites intelligently and not putting everyone together in one small space.

This is a well maintained campground, staff were friendly and helpful at check-in. Roads and sites are gravel, so a little dusty. We had a spacious and level pull-through site and big rig access was good. Very quiet, some privacy and plenty of space for our towed. We had a concrete patio however no picnic table or barbecue, and it would have been nice to have had a covered picnic table in the New Mexico heat. There was little landscaping, a few shrubs were dead, and it certainly needed some shade trees, and there were a lot of permanent residents. The laundry and bathrooms were clean but the laundry was much too small for the size of the campground. Pet friendly with pick up bags and disposal station, but we never did find the dog park.  Wi-Fi and cell were good. There is a Walmart in Truth and Consequences and a few places to eat. The park has a good view of the mountains to the west. Unfortunately, most of the pull-through sites face east so if you have a motorhome you end up with a view of the cell phone tower, a JCB, and a tractor trailer. RV park designers really need to pay more attention to maximizing the natural beauty of their surroundings. The mountains and lake are lovely, just wish we could have seen them! The park is expensive for what it is although it seems to be the going rate for the area. There are better parks nearby so would probably not stay here again, perhaps over night, but that's it!

This is a well maintained campground in a high desert setting, owners were very friendly and helpful at check in. Roads and pads are hard packed gravel which helps to minimize the dust. We had a spacious pull through and big rig access was good. Very quiet with plenty of space for our towed, and wonderful views of the mountains, if you are in a motor home choose a site that is facing north to get this view. The bathrooms and laundry although small were spotless. There was a security gate 24/7 which was very reassuring. Very pet friendly with a lovely trail to walk your pet. WiFi and cell were good. Only 6 miles into Taos, which has great restaurants, plenty of sightseeing and Walmart's. We would stay here again.

What a gem of a state park located high on a hillside overlooking Colorado Springs with the Cheyenne Mountains behind, so there are gorgeous views from every site. This is a very well maintained campground with helpful and friendly park rangers. Roads are asphalt. Our concrete pad was a long level and wide pull-through. Big rig access was good. Very quiet with lots of privacy, space for our towed, some sites had shade trees ours did not. Wooden steps up to a very pretty gravel area with a picnic table and grill. Bathrooms were spotless, and the laundry was large, clean and well equipped with washers, dryers, iron and ironing board. Not overly pet friendly. Yes, there are pick up bags, but dogs are not allowed on trails, and have to be walked in the roadway, so it would be great to have a dog walk area in the Park. No Wi-Fi but cell was good. Walmart and Safeway are just down the road, along with good restaurants and plenty of sightseeing. This is a very popular park and takes some time and patience to get a site here, but it's well worth it. We would stay here again, the scenery is breathtaking and the city lights at night are very pretty.

This is a very well maintained rustic resort set in amongst pine trees. Staff were friendly and helpful at check in. Roads and all the sites are crushed stone. Our level site was a long wide and very spacious pull-through, the sites are separated by trees which adds to the feeling of privacy, big rig access was fair. Very peaceful and quiet with plenty of space for our towed. Lovely shade trees, fire ring, picnic table and a distant mountain view. There are a few long term residents but their sites were neat and tidy. The laundry was large and well equipped and the bathrooms old but clean. Pet friendly with plenty of places to walk your pet. Wi-Fi was very slow and there was no cell. No food stores or restaurants close by. It's a 21 mile trip into Colorado Springs for most things. Colorado Springs is a great town, so much to see and do, the list is endless. We would stay here again, it's a great place and having the mule deer walk through the camp each night was a treat.

This is a well maintained campground, with helpful and friendly park rangers. Roads and pads are paved. Our site was a long and level pull-through and as noted in previous reviews the site pads were a strange half moon shape. Big rig access was adequate. It was very quiet with some privacy, and plenty of space for our towed. There were some shade trees, grass, fire ring, picnic table and a lovely distant view of the mountains. The laundry was closed for the season, however the bathrooms were still open and spotless. Pet friendly with plenty of places to walk your pet, and there is a lovely paved walking trail around the Lake. No Wi-Fi but cell was good. Walmart and Safeway are just down the road, as were great places to eat. At the time of our visit 3 of the loops were closed for the season, so the remaining loops were a mixture of reserved and walk in sites. If the office is closed you can use the self check-in at the park entrance. We would stay here again.

This is a very well maintained and fairly new RV Park. The lady was pleasant and helpful at check-in. Roads and sites are gravel. Our pull-through site was nicely angled. It was long and wide with plenty of space for our towed so we did not have to unhook for a one night stopover. Big rig access was good and the interior road was wide. Very quiet, there was some train noise, but it did not bother us. There were a few shade trees but as yet too small to give much shade and a picnic table. The laundry and bathrooms were spotless. Some grass is around the perimeter of the campground, ideal for walking your pet. There were a few long term residents but their sites were tidy and they were in another section of the campground. Wi-Fi and cell were good. This is a very rural area and shopping is typical of many small towns. This campground is not a destination resort and does not try to be, it is however clean and quiet with spacious sites, easy access to and from 1-25, and wonderful views from your RV. The only reason we gave this campground a 9 was because it could get dusty with all the gravel. We highly recommend this campground, it was just perfect for us, and we would stay here again.

This is a well maintained campground, with helpful staff at check-in. Roads are paved. It was very quiet when we were here so had the pick of sites. Our site was a gravel pull-through and very level.  Big rig access was good. Very quiet with some privacy around our RV, plenty of space for our towed, and no need to unhook if you are here for just one night. Established shade trees, plenty of grass, fire ring and picnic table. We had the most wonderful view over the Missouri river and the bluffs beyond. The bathrooms were large and clean. No laundry. Pet friendly with a lovely walk along the river bank. Wi-Fi and cell were good. There are a couple of local food shops, but the choice of places to eat and visit are very poor. We would stay here again, it's a great place for a one night stopover, but that's all. We paid cash for the night we stayed here.

This is a fairly well maintained campground, and is typical of an ex-KOA. Roads are gravel. We had a very long wide and level pull-through gravel site. Big rig access was good. Very quiet there was some noise from the train but it did not bother us. Some privacy around the RV, plenty of space for the towed, lots of shade trees, picnic table and fire ring.There were a few seasonal campers but their sites were tidy. The bathrooms and laundry were old but clean. Pet friendly. Wi-Fi and cell were excellent. There is a pool, miniature golf, and playground etc. for the kids.  There are a few local food stores and restaurants. The Pipestone National Monument is well worth a visit.  We would stay here again. Rate reflects Passport America.

Our opinion of the campground was somewhat clouded by the incompetence  of the hosts in matching the appropriate site to the size of the rig. The first site we were given was not big rig friendly, nor was it the 50 amp we had asked for. The second site was a tight fit but just doable, however the host initially tried to back us in from the wrong direction. That being said, it's a fairly well maintained but rustic campground. Roads are dirt so dusty, our site was mainly dirt with some gravel and not very level. Big rig access was marginal, and there are lots of low hanging trees. Quiet during the day but the train noise was noticeable during the night. Space for our towed, sites vary from heavily shaded to open and from fairly large to fairly confined, so choose your space very carefully. When we were there in the fall leaves and acorns from the oak trees fell on our coach, which required brushing off the slide toppers before retracting. We had a picnic table on a concrete pad,but no barbecue. There were a few seasonal campers, but their sites were tidy. Bathrooms were in poor shape, both the men's and the ladies had broken toilets and black mold in the showers. The laundry was small but adequate. Pet friendly with a dog walk. A pool, rally center, propane and dump station are also on site. Wi-Fi and cell were good, but our shaded site could not get satellite. There was no convenient place to hook up our towed when we left. We would stay here again but only for one night, and we would check out the adequacy of the site before settling in.

This is a typical big and busy city park. The lady at check in was very helpful and obliging. Road is paved. Our site was gravel and very unlevel, so we needed a few blocks to level. Big rig access was okay. Fairly quiet with some privacy, space for our towed. Some sites had shade trees, plenty of grass, picnic table and fire ring. There were quite a few seasonal RVs but their sites were well kept. Bathrooms were old but clean. There was no laundry. There was no security and anyone could walk, jog, bike ride, dog walk etc. through the campground at any time. Pet friendly with pick up bags and disposal stations. No Wi-Fi but cell was good. This campground is very handy for downtown, just a few minutes walk to food stores and unique places to eat. The Gitchi Gami State Bike Trail is also close by. The premium sites are of course overlooking the Grand Marais Harbor and Lake Superior and are on a first come first served basis, so check in early. It's well worth the effort for the wonderful views. We would stay here again, and despite the fact that it is a large campground with everything from tents to Class A motorhomes all crammed in every available nook and cranny, it all seems to work very well!

This is a well maintained city park campground, with very helpful hosts. They know the area well and can tell you the best places to visit as well as the best places to eat! Roads are paved as was our level pull-in site. Big rig access was good. There was a little road noise during the day but at night it was quiet. Privacy between sites with grass and a few shrubs. A few sites had shade trees, ours did not. Plenty of space for our towed. All sites overlook the Portage Waterway and have a lovely covered deck with picnic table and park bench, there is also a fire ring. This is only a small campground with 22 sites and the sites are tiered so everyone gets a wonderful view of the water. There are no bathrooms or laundry. Pet friendly but dogs are not allowed in the city park. Wi-Fi was hit and miss and cell was marginal. Food stores and Walmart are just down the road. Houghton is a gem of a historical town, so much to see and do, with some wonderful places to eat, we can highly recommend Joeys Seafood and Grill. There is plenty of sightseeing and the drive to Copper Harbor is a must. We would stay here again. Dropped one point because of Wi-Fi.

This is a fairly rustic campground. The staff were friendly and helpful at check-in. Some of the roads are paved, but after a rain storm there was some standing water. Our site was grass and fairly level, we had a sewer hook up, but not all sites do. Utilities are side by side, so make sure you bring enough to reach. Big rig access was fair. Fairly quiet, but there was some road noise, plenty of space for our towed, lots of grass, fire ring and picnic table. The bathrooms were clean, but old. There was no laundry. Pet friendly and a wonderful beach to walk your pets on. Wi-Fi and cell were good. There are food stores and some local restaurants in Munising, and lots of sightseeing close by. This is just a plain and simple City Park, it's very popular and the water view sites get booked up very quickly, so plan ahead, it's well worth it! This place is all about the view, we were steps from Lake Superior and a beach. Wonderful views during the day and lovely sunsets at night. We would stay here again.

This is a well maintained campground with helpful and friendly staff at check in. There had been rain the day before, and our first site was under water, so we had to move to another drier site, it does seem that quite a few sites are prone to this, so check carefully before you get settled in! The roads are paved. Our pad was gravel, and a very level back-in. Big rig access was good. Very quiet, average privacy, plenty of space for the towed, shade trees, grass, picnic table and fire ring. There are no sewer hookups but there are two dumps with easy access. We had a wonderful view of the huge freighters on the St Mary's River coming and going to the Soo Locks. The laundry was clean and well equipped and the bathrooms were spotless. Very pet friendly with plenty of places to walk your pet. Wi-Fi and cell were good. Walmart is about four miles away, with local restaurants and the Soo Locks just down the road. Sault Ste Marie is a working town but one we found to be very interesting. This is a very popular campground and gets booked up very quickly, especially the premium water sites. However be aware that the signage for this campground is poor, the sign for the campground is after the entrance, so we and everyone else drove past and had to make a u turn down the road, not easy with a big rig!  We would stay here again.
