Campground layout is unusual (sites alternate directions; roadways are 2-way but only 12 ft wide. I was told that it had been a mobile home park. There are lots of shade trees in some parts of the campground. We were assigned a 30-amp site in full sun that is supposed to be a pull-through but was blocked on one end. Manager argued that we could pull through and then husband came over and agreed no way. Took several hours for coach to cool off due only 30 amp power. Not sure why we were assigned this crappy site when there were plenty others that were much shadier and had 50 amp power. Would stay here again, but now know to ask for shade and 50 amp. Shame that the manager couldn't figure that out on her own and take better care of us. Price reflects SKP member rate.

Pretty good... some sites are better than others. We had Electric and Water at $23/night, which is a bit high when compared to other military campgrounds. But if you want to stay in the Charleston area for just a few day this is probably a good deal. Well situated. Would stay again.

We stayed here for 2 weeks and then another 10 days. We love it! Gets busy on the weekends when the weather is nice but peaceful during the week. Camp hosts are great, rangers are really nice. Park is clean, but showers were mildewy...could be cleaner. Will stay here again for sure. $11 rate is based on being disabled. You need to be a TN resident to get this rate, otherwise it's $22/night which is still a decent price.

Great National Park campground... no hookups but large 3-drop dump station with potable water. Very generous (large) site, wooded for some shade. We were in B59 and it stayed shaded all day. Campground is next to the famous Cades Cove loop - we rode our bikes around the 11-mile loop and saw bears, wild turkey and deer. Reasonable generator rules (8am-8pm, not continuous). Horseback riding, carriage rides, ice cream, bike rentals within walking distance. General store with pay phone. NO CELL SIGNAL. Make a reservation and come on by!

This campground is great! Big generous sites that are almost all pull-throughs. Popular with everyone from families to retired couples, tent campers, pop-ups, travel trailers, fifth wheelers, and big Class As. Lots of bike riding opportunities, and plenty of space for walking dogs, etc. Grocery store is 5 minutes away and downtown Savannah is about a 20 minutes drive. Lots of shade. Would give this place a "10" but shower stalls lack hooks to hang clothes and towel, and no place to put soap and shampoo but on the floor. BUT... there's cable TV! Would go back there for sure. Highly recommend.

The above rate includes taxes. This is one of the best-priced campgrounds in the area. Wireless internet access is an additional charge: we paid $10 for 6 days. This is campground is in a quiet rural residential area along the Niagara River. The sites are a little cramped but the campground is very pleasant. One of the two dryers was broken during our 6 day visit. Their pet policy in terms of allowed breeds is strict. Definitely NO pit bulls or pit bull mixes. Looks to me like this is a good place to tent camp also. The center of Niagara Falls and the tourist area is a 15-20 minute drive, so the location of the campground is good. But no public transportation. They also have 10 or so little motel rooms that are very basic but are affordable. Friends of our stayed in a motel room while we stayed here. We would stay here again.

The above rate includes the add-on cost of internet access ($10 for 3 days). This is a very large campground with a variety of sites, but they all seem to be at least good and many are excellent. There are several seasonal sites but they were fairly neat and tidy. The laundry facility is clean and functional. We did not use the bathrooms or showers. This campground is situated in a rural area, away from public transportation. If you don't have a vehicle, be prepared to take a taxi to the GO station or whatever. Aside from transportation, this campground is within 30 minutes of downtown Toronto and is a great place to stay to visit the area. We would stay here again.

This rate covers the cost of camping only. We did not have to pay the day use fee of $6/day because we told the young man that registered us that we would not be leaving the park during our stay. This is a nice campground with large sites and a very nice beach on Lake Huron.There are oak trees everywhere but they have been thinned enough to give an open feeling. I was able to use my Verizon phone and USB modem, although the signal was weak. Unfortunately, there are no, none, zilch trash cans at the campground except for the ones in the bathrooms. So you can guess where the trash ends up. The host told us this is because people kept stealing the trashcans. Hey, how about a 1000 lb dumpster? That would work. So you either hoard your trash, which is not good, put it in the bathroom (no good either), or you drive/walk about a mile to the dumpsters at the entrance. We don't have a car and so only made that walk once. The other issue is that the 30 amp service is flaky. During windy weather, the power kept going on an off. Despite the trash can and power issues, we would stay here again - it really is a nice place.

This nightly rate is for a water and electric site, and based on paying in cash rather than by credit card. This is a very nice RV park. It is well laid out with spacious sites, well-manicured grass, and lots of pine and oak trees for shade. The facilities are clean and very functional, and the camp hosts are friendly. Wal-Mart is just a stone's throw away, so it is convenient for groceries, etc. Good Verizon signal and excellent wireless internet signal (site #24), but we could not pull in any TV stations. This RV park is focused on adults, but you can bring children with you if you're willing to accompany them everywhere and keep them entertained. We would stay here again.

We stayed one night in the overflow area. After sitting through a 10 minute briefing delivered by a very stressed camp host, who hammered the Base Commander's stance on safety and security ("watch out for the SPs, watch out for fires, watch out for hail, watch out for tornadoes" and so on) we were sent over the to overflow area in the hope we would get a regular site the next day. Interestingly, the overflow area backs right up to a very unsafe environment. An open field with 3-4 foot tall dry grass, which is a fire waiting to happen in that SD high wind environment. After that uptight briefing from the camp host and spending a night at the edge of hades known as Overflow, we were happy to get off Ellsworth the next day and find a campsite in south Rapid City at a cooler, much more relaxed campground that is closer to everything and only for $2 more a day. As a proud Air Force retiree, I will certainly stay at other military campgrounds in the future, but not Ellsworth AFB.

The rating and nightly rate above reflects the Treed Site area. The first time we stayed here we disliked it because we stayed in the lower, "parking lot" area that has full hookups. It was dusty with no picnic tables or fire rings. But then we came back through and stayed on the upper ridge or Treed Site area instead, and this was very nice. These site have power and water hookups with a dump station nearby. We saw large 5th wheel trailers up there, along with several coaches up to 36 feet long. This treed area is very nice. Pioneer RV Park is the only RV park we've ever been to that actually has a Dog Wash! That is actually why we went back. And we would stay there again, but not in the parking lot area!

The $22 per night includes the day use fee ($6). We stayed on the east side and this is a lovely campground, wide and deep graveled sites, many with shade trees. There are beautiful Blue Spruces all around and well-kept grass areas. There is a nice playground for the kids. Site #45 is the best, in my opinion, but all the sites are at least nice. My only criticism is that there are no water spigots around the campground. You have to go to the bathhouse and use the spigot mounted on the outside of that building. The lake is gorgeous. The young lady who checked us in was very friendly and efficient. We would stay here again for sure!

This is a nice campground that is a lot like a National Forest campground: spacious sites, lots of trees. The sites are pull-offs on the side of the road. Cool and very private. We had a picnic table and a fire ring. We also had a mother and two mule deer fawns come and visit several times. It's very pleasant here. We would stay again!

Great place! No hookups but if you go there prepared for that (full fresh water, no waste in tanks) then you'll be fine You can run your generator whenever, once its not during quiet hours (10PM-6AM?) Large, generous sites with lots of Cottonwood trees. Very pleasant and helpful camp hosts. Great view of Devil's Tower. Would definitely stay here again!

I'll go back to Yellowstone the next chance I get but I would not stay at Fishing Bridge again if you paid me. The check in process was awkward and there was a cluster of RVs all tangled up in the check in area when we got there. The sites are crowded together and the roadways are narrow. There are no picnic tables, or even room for a table and so you have to put your grill on the ground. The majority of sewer pipes are ELEVATED 15-24 inches so you have to empty your tanks against gravity. We would have been much happier staying at one of the other campgrounds with no hookups.
