Date of Stay:

Friendly folks who cater to seasonal campers and caravans. Solo travelers get the leftovers. Very few 50A sites and most are taken by seasonal campers. My reason for posting is the very poor power (voltage 10 percent under or over several times a day) and the very rusty water. (I used a cartridge filter in a week.) I would not return.

Date of Stay:

Newer, more spacious RV park, with long wide sites. Usurious $25 fee for 50 amp service, charged upon arrival, NOT on their web site. Asked for late check in and they forgot us. Had to call when we pulled in. Very poor customer service and attitude toward the RV consumer.

Date of Stay:

Quiet, shaded campground cut into the pine covered hills over the town of Clinton. Generous sites, lovely views, nice campground to walk in, very nice owners. A bit off the road and hard to find if headed south, clear signage when headed north. Nicest option in town.

Date of Stay:

I was disappointed. The area we were in was adjacent to the highway, in a four rig buddy site with a giant fire pit in the center. The sites were mostly gray dirt separated by large concrete highway dividers, giving it the feel of a truck stop. Lots of fire wood was available adjacent to a hulk of an abandoned two story building “yet to be completed”. The front area by the office is a little nicer. Very glad we didn’t stay longer.

Date of Stay:

A bit off the highway, tight pull-throughs, many arranged as "buddy sites". Inconvenient hookups at rear of site. Unsecure, slow Wi-Fi. We will try another park on the way back.

Date of Stay:

A work in progress? The owners seem to be slowly upgrading this dated, run-down, recently converted KOA. OK for an overnight. Hook-ups at the extreme rear of the pull through we were in.

Date of Stay:

Of 5 "overnight" pull throughs (30A only) only one had a functioning water spigot, and the plug was broken on that site. Do yourself a favor and keep rolling. Nice managers, it is a shame they don't do repairs or can't find a decent park to manage.

Date of Stay:

Small, very family friendly KOA. Some sites are narrow, the turns are tight. It's a bit pricey for off season, some pull throughs without sewer and all pull-throughs are "buddy sites" which I hate. Has a very nice frisbee golf course and nature trail.

Date of Stay:

A newer park with all pull-through sites, most gravel, 18 paved. Mostly long term sites on the N along the freeway, short term and overnight on the S (the paved sites). The south side is adjacent to a stable and riding school. If you are here for more than an overnight, you notice the stable (earlier if the wind is blowing in the right direction) along with the increase in the fly population. Rate listed reflects the weekly rate.

Date of Stay:

Mixture of long term, transient, and RV club guests. They have a special RV club area and extra club room, a real nice idea. We found no power or water issues. No freeway noise (and our hearing is intact). Clean. A train runs through the valley occasionally, but not unpleasant. Rate reflects weekly rate.

Date of Stay:

Pulled in on a Thursday in August at 3:30 PM. (No listed activities at fairground until Saturday.) Only 2 sites available, water only (no electric). Most units seemed to be permanent and not well maintained. Beware if you think this is a convenient stop.

Date of Stay:

I was prepared for tight, muddy after it rains, no sewer, no wi-fi, PA rate, nice folks... thanks to previous reviews. In addition I found 30amp service with 50amp plugs (labeled as 50amp site, with extra charge; you can fool some of the people, I guess. We changed sites), no breakers at the site, and pay showers (for WATER, not just hot water). There were three male showers for 130 sites (lots of insects in shower room). That is my definition of “nickel and dimeing”. One dump station within the park, surrounded by sites.

Date of Stay:

From their web site: We will not be taking any reservations for this season. Our business plan has changed and we are honoring our contracts with existing full season campers from 08'. Therefore we will have no daily, weekly or monthly camping for 09'.

Date of Stay:

Pros: This park has nice owners; it's a nice town; has a good rate and good hook-ups. Cons: Was hard to find the park's entry; and was badly in need of fresh gravel on all the park roads. Rate reflects weekly rate.

Date of Stay:

Park has an old section, a less-old section, and a new section, closer to the entry. We were in the new section, which has generous pull-through sites, level, well laid out, quiet. Has nice, friendly owners. Has nice landscaping and flowers in park. We would stay here again.
