One of our favorite stops in Iowa. Owners have had the park for 10 years. We were there four years ago and have seen a continued expansion of the park. It is extremely well kept, clean, and offers everything needed with the exception of a pool and large laundry facility. The sites are level, large in length and width. They offer both full hookups and electric and water only sites.

Date of Stay:

Stayed for 2 days and found the facilities, campground personnel, and access to Springfield tourist sites very appealing. Our full service campsite was very level with easy access to electric, water, sewage, and 12 cable TV stations. We used the laundry facilities while there and were pleased that it was clean and well maintained. Even though they did not have a dog park, there was plenty of space available for pets with waste disposal and bags available. Would definitely stay there again.

Date of Stay:

Our second visit in 3 years. New owners since first visit. Campground very well kept. Sites sized well and level. Large area for pet exercise at far end of the campground (not a dog park). Small playground and miniature golf course for kids. Need more pet clean-up areas around the campground. Only found one near camping area at entrance. Cable and Wi-Fi are adequate. Road noise from I-78 and road next to campground can be bothersome for some. Attended annual "pig roast" with camper's pot luck. Very nice hall and setup. Well attended. Hosts were great.

Date of Stay:

Camped here mid-July during heat-wave with a group of 8 coaches. Dry weather created much dust when moving about the campground in campers, cars, etc. Local utility reduced power by 10% which affected 50 amp service. Had to run 30 amp service and manage electrical use of a/c, microwave, appliances. Some in the group chose to run generators. Campground is in a valley which limited satellite TV, Wi-Fi, etc. Our site backed up to the lake. Overall campground is decent and would stay here again when "cooler" weather prevails.

Date of Stay:

Nice clean and well-organized. Spent 7 days here. Very active park with daily events scheduled for full-time and part-time campers. Sites are well suited for larger motor homes. An attractive non-denominational chapel is on site and is well attended at Sunday services. The lake itself is fishable and boating with a troll motor is feasible but many old tree trunks protrude from the lake. This is a friendly campground, well run with friendly staff.

Date of Stay:

Stayed her 1 week during special promotion 6 days at 26.00, 1 day free. Staff was very friendly. Was told that current owners purchased the camp ground in Aug '12 and that they have been making gradual improvements. Currently have small rec center. Office and store is adequate for small purchases. This campground is close to The Villages which was beneficial as we were visiting relatives there. Laundry facilities were in good condition.

Date of Stay:

Small older park near interstate 10. Road noise excessive at night. Narrow entry/exit road. Office and store looked worn and in need of update. Sites were narrow and provided limited storage of our tow dolly and car parking. Sites were level though red clay sand in the park causes difficulty in keeping shoes, dog paws from dirtying the motorhome. No cable TV and limited local TV station access was disturbing. Campground recently installed a fenced dog run that provided good exercise area for our Boston Terrier. Free WiFi was a plus.

Date of Stay:

Sites have ample width and length for large motor homes. A severe thunderstorm containing heavy rain, winds, tornado watch and hail during our stay necessitated our leaving the motor home into the lounge/bath house/laundry building with other campers. The building contained a very modern laundry facility, mens and womens showers (very clean and well cared for). Drainage on the site was poor and water saturated the grassy area on the site. Each site has a lighted post for good lighting at night. On site camping store is very clean and well stocked with camping gear and parts for motor homes. Overall a very nice facility.

Date of Stay:

Office and store adequate. Staff friendly. Had full hook-up site. Water access located in concrete bowl was full of water after earlier heavy rain. Had to bale water to access hose connection. Site was narrow with small trees on either side. Was able to open slides but could not extend awning. Park not very attractive.

Date of Stay:

Spent 1 night here on our way to FL. Called for reservation on the road. Arrived just before office closing. Friendly office staff. Park was adequate for short stay.

Date of Stay:

Stayed here 8 days with Passport America discount. Large RV Resort with well kept facilities. Sites were large and well kept. Restaurants, ice cream shop, Wal Mart Super Store in walking distance. Many permanent campers and homes here. Easy access off of I-75. Would definitely stay here again.

Date of Stay:

Very nice campground. Only complaint was mix of tent campers among motorhomes and trailers. Tent campers in our are encroached on our site, crossing through to get to boat launch. Would return in the future.

Date of Stay:

Campground and sites were very clean. Site was large and level. No complaints regarding electric, water, sewerage and TV cable. Very quiet with few campers while we were here.

Date of Stay:

Camped with a group of 17 other RV's. Campground was very clean, with large, pull through sites. Water, electric and on-site dumping was very accessible. Unfortunately, the weather was rainy, cold and windy. Did not use other facilities. Interstate 78 highway noise is noticeable outside but neglible inside the motorhome.
