Date of Stay:

Spent an overnight here during the Sturgis motorcycle rally. Not my idea of quiet, scenic fun. Interior dirt roads created dusty conditions when vehicles were driving on them. No enforcement of speed limits within campground. Wifi access was okay.

Date of Stay:

We spent an overnight here on the way east and also when returning west. It's conveniently located to the highway, and although close there is little highway noise. But there is train horn noise until late in the evening. The campsite is older and space is tight for using slide outs and awnings. Space is also critical when entering a space to park or exiting with your RV. And the spaces are so close together that extended awnings almost touch extended slide out rooms. Utility hook ups are fairly conveniently located. There is "wifi," but the signal is usually weak due to the many campers using their system.

Date of Stay:

A nice campground EXCEPT during Sturgis motorcycle rally week. Sites can use some leveling and upkeep to eliminate tire ruts. A little pricey considering the lack of amenities (no TV, wifi wasn't available during days and evenings).

Date of Stay:

Nice stopover location when traveling on I-90. Located close to the freeway but the noise wasn't overwhelming. Grass around site could use some upkeep and watering to enhance appearance.

Date of Stay:

Located in an industrial area and between two lakes where fishing and boating are permitted. Fairly quiet in evening and night. Large site, but could use some upkeep to enhance leveling and avoid water pools during rain storms.

Date of Stay:

Nightly rates were increased $10 per night during the nearby Oshkosh "AirVenture." No cable TV and "wifi" access was sporadic. Our site was located adjacent to the dump station so we got a good whiff of nasty smells each time someone dumped their RV and especially when the local waste contractor pumped out the holding tanks. Site was on an incline, which required leveling blocks. The grassy area around the site was also uneven and required moving the picnic table several times. The interior roads are dirt, which caused extremely dusty conditions whenever a vehicle passed. The pool & spa were too close so we had to listen to screaming and yelling children each evening.

Date of Stay:

The "Dells" is an amusement & water park paradise that abounds with families with small children. This RV park is conveniently located to most of those activities. The price per night is outrageous! A site with full hook ups for the price we paid is ridiculous; little to no "wifi" connection and no cable TV.

Date of Stay:

Camp here if you love boating and fishing. Mosquitoes were terrible, and after heavy rain the sites were lightly flooded but that inhibited movement around the site due to the standing water. Utility hook ups were on a shared post that required in our case an extension cord on our electrical hook up. Although "cable TV" was advertised on their web site it was nonexistent. The office clerk said "it got washed away in one of last year's rains." There is NO "wifi" access.

Date of Stay:

A nice place to spend a few days while visiting the Twin Cities area. Located in a quiet area adjacent to a major street, but late in the evening the noise was negligible. Sites are grassy and large, but those out in the open suffer from the high heat during the summer. "Wifi" available in only one "loop" which is close to the office. There is no pool, but there are a couple of playgrounds for children.

Date of Stay:

This is NOT a park for transients or for a weekend outing. Most of the spaces are "seasonal" or "permanent" (they are purchased and used by part-time residents). We were lucky to be able to reserve a site that was isolated and had a great amount of space, but we got to listen to the seasonal residents having their patio/garden parties each evening. Golf carts abound in this park, and many are driven by children or teenagers. Each evening there is a "parade of carts" with residents continuously driving around the facility with wine glass or bottle or glass in one hand while driving (usually faster than the posted 10 MPH limit AND ignoring one-way streets) until after the sun sets. Teenage staff at the office and around the facility; never once saw any sign of adult supervision of the sites or streets. Don't consider a stopover or a weekend here.

Date of Stay:

Stayed overnight, but would be a good place for a few days. Spaces are dirt/gravel and might require some leveling. Good access to utility hook ups. "Wifi" access was sporadic and the signal weak. A few "permanent" residents in the park, and those parked nearby our site were heavy smokers so we "enjoyed" the smell of tobacco smoke most of the evening. Not far from an interstate highway, but the noise level was almost negligible.

Date of Stay:

Not all the ads tell you. Noisy due to Hwy 101 only yards from the campsites. An old park because the spaces are so close together that awnings either can't be extended or can't be extended fully; slideouts significantly reduce the space between RVs. Was assigned a particular space during telephone reservation process and was confirmed via email, but upon arrival discovered that a "semi-permanent resident" who's been living there for more than 6 years was in that space. Check-in was laborious because the attendant's poor eyesight prevented him from reading the credit card machine window that provided instructions for use. Thus, the transaction was rejected several times until he finally noticed that he needed to input some information. Uneven gravel sites are old and need to be graded and leveled.

Another campground that wants to be a resort! Spaces are pretty tight for those with big rigs (motor homes or travel trailers) in spite of the pull-thru ability in several. Small children were playing on interior roads on scooters and bicycles before 7 AM. So much for solitude and quiet for campers. Permanent and long term residents spread throughout the park, not confined to a particular area. Sites are on grass (not a great feature considering the annual rainfall in the area), and water faucets are at ground level which makes it difficult to hook up. Experienced "vandalism" twice in 18 hours. While away from the site someone opened the electricity box cover and removed pulled my cord out of the receptacle and laid the cord on the ground. Neighbors claimed innocence and no knowledge. Entry gate locked at 10 PM and a $5 deposit is required for a card to be able to open it after hours. They're "pet friendly," but keep that pet on a leash!

Date of Stay:

Great location but this park is OLD and it shows. Sites are not prepared for arrival of campers. Had to remove vegetation around the water faucet before use. Bathrooms are clean but are obviously in need of maintenance; paint peeling from walls. Shower curtains could be wider to avoid splashing on clothing. Lack of signage for shower electrical switch causes confusion. There are only two showers, two wash basins and two toilets for 43 sites. WiFi was sporadic; manger stated that servers had recently been replaced resulting in unreliable service. Big rig maneuverability is severely limited. No playground for children; only horseshoe pits and badminton courts.

This is a nice park that's not far from I-20 but far enough to not have to contend with the highway noise. It's a little hard to locate, but if you just follow the signs rather than your GPS you should easily find it. Other than the dirt roads which create dust when the wind blows (it was howling during our stay), this is a great place and would be nice for a few days for a family. There's a pool and a fenced playground. Staff are friendly and helpful. The rates are reasonable.
