This campground is worth the stay to see the Old Grist Mill and there is a good selection of deli items and groceries in the store. My site was level and utilities were easy to access. WiFi is excellent. Stayed right after Memorial Day holiday so very quiet. There is some highway noise but could not hear it from my rig in the middle of the park. Just what I needed for an overnight stay and happy to stay another right when rain delayed my leaving. Back in sites have shade.

The grounds surrounding the campground are beautiful with nice places for walking (dog). The campsites themselves on the upper area were overgrown with weeds and debris from the trees. My spot was very uneven and even with my leveler I could not get level. It was so uneven around the site that it made it difficult to find a level spot for my chair and to even walk around, being gutted and overgrown with weeds all through the site. It looks like the sites on the lower level are in better shape but they have no shade. There is a large collection of stuffed wildlife in the store and it is called a museum. Included in this collection is the stuffed hindquarters of a deer. I found this offensive and even disturbing. On the plus side, it is easy in and out--though the entrance is steep coming down--one exit is not marked (may be on the park map) and goes out from the lower level to the right when facing highway and is not steep. The utilities were easy to access. WiFi was sketchy and generally unusable and my Verizon was also sketchy--perhaps due to the campground being in a valley. It was enough, however, for me to take care of what I needed to.

One of the most delightful places I have stayed. Lovely riverfront spots and places to dog walk. There were about a dozen unoccupied units in the park and I assume they are people who come on weekends and holidays. Except for us few "transients" there was nary anyone around. It was very quiet being far from the road and the train across the river in Kentucky. The spot was satisfactorily level and the water and electric were easy to get to. No sewer but the dump station is easy to access. If one has an extended stay, they offer tank emptying service twice a week for a small fee. They have no wifi but I got an excellent signal on Verizon. The Verizon phone however was sketchy. Despite being by the river there was not a problem with insects anywhere--no mosquitoes to worry--at least not in May when I visited. The trees are still small so unless one is parked over by the forest, there is no shade.

Pleasing, quiet location, friendly staff, easy in and out, level spot and easy access to utilities. Snacks including ice cream as well as DVDs and a small selection of supplies are available in the office. Enjoyed my stay.

Information on Passport America--it only applies to weekdays. The "normal" rate, though they do not note it on the PA website is for weekdays. If you come in on the weekend, in addition to not getting the reduced rate, the weekend rate is higher. Also beware of where you park if you are 30amp. If you park in the 50amp section, they will charge you for the 50amp rate even though you are 30amp and there are 30amp outlets. Plus side, easy in /out, level spot easy hookups.

Came in as an Escapee-- the ad said 15% off $22.00 rate + tax. When I asked about the discount she said it covers the 14% hotel/motel tax, so it is $22.00. So I paid the $22.00--did not want to argue the math (nor the tax she quoted) which according to my calculations should have been about $18. I had trouble finding a level spot and was directed to the fifty amp spot which was reasonably level if I did not try to reach the water. I put water in my holding tank and then positioned myself. She then tried to charge me more for the 50 amp spot. I told her I was only 30amp. Don't think there is WiFi there though the ad says so. She did not tell me of it and I did not see WiFi available. I was not able to get a connection on Verizon but was able to use my cell phone for a hot spot which worked well. The dump station was not level but I appreciated the good water pressure on the hose. The grounds are nice with a park like atmosphere and it is nice for dog walking.

This is a campground next to a lake that used to be the site for Bluegrass shows. There are no more formal shows but the owner and manager says people still come to "pick". There was no "picking" while I was here. The campground is easy access off highway 107. It is run down but pleasant nonetheless. Peaceful and quiet but for the sounds of nature. On the periphery, there are some permanent residents with run down units but the central area by the lake has the visitors with newer units and tidy spots. My spot was frightfully unlevel and the other sites did not look much better. But for $12 a night-fifteen if you do not belong to Escapees, this annoyance can be overlooked. That is what levelers are for. It has no WiFi but I got a bar or two with Verizon and was able to get online well enough. If I come back through Arkansas I will stay here again; only longer than the two days I stayed this visit.

This park is now closed. Do not be misled by the web site that is still up or the phone number that is still working. The sign for the park has a small "closed" sign affixed to it.

Stayed here for several days - kept extending my stay because I enjoyed it so much. This park is run by its owners and its owners are RVers, so they understand and respond to what RVers need. To start with, it is easy in and out. The spots are wide and mine was level but there was some gutting from mud. The utilities are easy to get to. The RVs are back to back so you dont have to look at your neighbor's sewer hose when going in and out. An appreciated touch. The wifi was excellent. The laundry and restrooms were spotless. The laundry room has its own restroom and seating area. There are plenty of washers and dryers and the price is right. Very good dog walking roads within the park.

This is a delightful recreation area about fifteen miles east of Hwy 99/Galt. It is in a treed area that looks out on pasture land as far as the eye can see on one side and a lake on the other side. It is rich with wildlife (which I heard at night) and so many birds. Apart from the birds one can hear not a sound. No highway, no trains, just silence. It offers water and electric with a dump station. It has restrooms with a laundry. The sites are all back in but they are spacious with picnic tables, BBQ, and fire pits. Not only are they spacious but there is a generous amount of room on either side allowing a bit of privacy. Being here on off season I had no one around me at all. My spot was not quite level but not bad. It offers no Wifi but I was able to pick up a satisfactory Verizon signal. There is fishing in the lake and a fenced in dog park next to the lake so your pooch can run and play in the water. It is about a forty minute drive to Sacramento give or take depending on where in Sacramento. This makes it ideal if you have reason to visit Sacramento but don't want to deal with traffic in your RV. The entrance gate closes early and you cannot get in without a reservation after the gate closes. The off season closing is 3:30 in the afternoon and regular season I believe is 6 maybe 6:30. So if you are going to arrive after these times, make sure you have a reservation. When you leave and get back after the gate locks, you have to use the phone at the gate to identify yourself and then they open the gate to allow you in. A minor inconvenience but it keeps out anyone who does not belong there. The rate I paid is for the off season, it is double that in summer. One of the most lovely places I have stayed.

I stayed here for four nights. This is a combination motel, RV park, diner and bar--all on the same property. The RV park is small and simple. My site was only so so level but the utilities were easy to get to. There are some full time residents in the back of the diner and the overnighters are in a separate section. The diner is fun with its 50s theme and decor. I had lunch there and it was good. Did not use the bar but other people did--local residents. They were loud in the evenings --voices seem to bounce and echo off the walls in there. I was able to block it out with the vent above my stove for white noise. That being said, the bar must close early because by ten o'clock there was not a sound. Apart from that, the place is very quiet. No street noise, no highway noise.

I enjoyed my stay at this park. It is quite clean and quiet (with a caveat which I will get to momentarily) and the staff is friendly and helpful. I appreciated the full service restaurant and bar on the premises (with video poker which was a plus). Much of the premises is locked up like a fortress; the office was locked and you need to get "buzzed" in; there are locked gates to the RV park proper so each guest is given a remote to open it. (The restaurant and bar are outside the gates.) I was a bit alarmed when I first arrived as (unbeknownst to me) it is in close proximity to the air force base. The jets were coming in as I was arriving and setting up. While they were spectacular to look at, the noise was deafening. Fortunately, there was no more of that during my next two days there. However, I was away all day so cannot speak to what when on during that time. (But who is going to stay in the park while visiting Vegas?) Due to a leak in my loo, I needed to use the showers at the park and they were not only perfectly clean but attractive. The spot was level and it was easy to hook up utilities and unhook and "rehook" my tow vehicle, with the space long enough to accommodate both (my rig is 24 ft). The only fault I found was the layout of the park and the close proximity to the unit next door. When the park was full it looked like a parking lot. The roads are narrow and I had a bit of difficulty finding my spot - a few trips around the park to get the layout got me to the road to my spot. Small quibble, that. I would definitely stay here again, jets or no jets.

The rate reflects Passport America. I stayed here for a couple days and it was a very pleasant stop over. A place I look forward to returning to. There are some permanent residents but all the units are maintained and the spots tidy as is the entire park. It also has a small motel on the premises and the units, the manager told me, are being rented to people who are working in the area. The manager put me at the riverfront for the same rate as the spots up above since she had room and had no reservations for that area. It was just steps away from the river. The spot was level enough though not great. The hookups were easy to access. The spot was between two shade trees and she spotted me as I pulled into the spot to avoid hitting branches. The laundry room was clean and spacious with plenty of washers and dryers, and the price was good. I did not use the restrooms or showers but saw they were clean and well maintained. The WiFi was iffy. I wound up using my Verizon which worked well. In addition to the beach next to the park, there is a large deck with chairs and lounges for looking out over the river. The park was also easy access from and to the freeway and a short distance to central Needles. The only grocery was getting ready to close. Do your shopping before coming in or be prepared to drive into Arizona.

Thirty dollars a night, no sewer hookup, no dump station, no WiFi. When I asked in the fairgrounds office if I could put a letter with their outgoing mail, I was told I could not, but I could take it down the street to the grocery that had a "blue box". Certainly my spot was nice enough. They put me by the wine gazebo next to the museum. It was clean and it was level, but for thirty dollars a night, I would expect more.

The rate paid is based on the Passport America discount. To start with, this park is tricky to find. Its entrance is rather narrow and next to a mini mart/gas station. If you are coming from the east it is easy to miss it. There is a large sign telling you the park is there but does not tell you where the entrance is and it is not obvious as you are coming up on it. But a short distance down is a large area where you can turn around. It is easier to see the entrance from the west. You go up a curving hill and you will see the park office. I have rarely stayed in a park where the spaces are so narrow. I could stand outside my door and reach over and touch my neighbor's slide out. The park is built on a hill so each spot is a level above the other. There is a rock retaining wall on the side of each spot. I would guess there is about three feet between the doorstop of my rig and the retaining wall; barely room for a chair. My spot was not level and I saw others leveling their unit. The Wi-Fi is spotty--I would not count on it. My Verizon MiFi works pretty well. My GPS was just updated but it was not able to find any shopping or eateries close by. I had to drive about ten miles round trip to get dinner. All that being said, the park has a peaceful feel and the I-40 noise is minimal. It has a clean laundry with plenty of washers and dryers. It is easy access to highway 14 to take you to Tinkertown Museum--a must see while you are here.
