Our 2nd stay at Wilson's, both times were uneventful, and yes we will return. What I Liked: Three miles to downtown Asheville NC, a city alive with peoples, outdoor cafes and street entertainers. A New Orleans feel. The RV Park is located within a Park/Recreational Area. Miles of paved bike/hike paths. Rafting and biking rentals are within walking distance. All sites have level cement pads, water, 30/50 amp, sewage. Half the site are on the French Broad River with a beautiful view. Most sites have shade. Other Observations: The park is located between two busy interstates, i.e. road noise. The park office is closed after 5 pm and on weekends. Could not get the cable TV to work at my site (#9). I left three voice mails and one email and never received a response from the park. You can not reserve a specific site.

The park is well maintained and the employees are friendly and helpful.The park is located 3 miles from downtown Boone. We stayed in site 33 which is on the creek running the park. There are many creek front sites, most with sewage. The restroom and showers are clean, well maintained and heated.

The park is beautiful and well maintained. It is a large park. The majority of the sites are very shady. All sites are gravel, very level, and have full hook-ups. The sites are acceptably large. It’s a dog friendly park, with no dedicated dog walk space but ample dog walking areas. The laundry is clean, two washers and two driers. The negatives are no cable TV, no Wi-Fi, and pay showers (Must have coins). Why don’t they charge a $1 more per night? Visitors must pay a fee. Satellite reception is difficult to receive because of trees.

The park is located on the Thunder Bay River/Lake Winyah. The best lake sites are 6 to 11 (Water and Electric only). There are several seasonal renters. The park appears well managed and it is certainly will maintained. The sites are small, close with reasonable shady. The sites are grass/gravel, and are level. It’s a dog friendly park, with a dog walk area. Included are 73 cable TV channels. The park’s Wi-Fi is reasonably fast. Version cell signal was 2 bar (4G). The restrooms and showers were very clean. The men’s shower temperature settings are not adjustable. For me the temperature was too hot. The laundry area is clean, two washers and two driers. It a 10 minute drives to many good restaurants. I would certainly return.

The park located near I35 is located on the ST Louis River. It has large mature trees with reasonable shade. Only a few sites have sewage, but most have water and electric. We use 30 amps, but I saw 50 amp rigs in the park. The park and grounds are maintained and clean. The sites are not large but reasonable; the pads are gravel and reasonably level. It’s a dog friendly park, with abundant area to walk your dogs, especially on the river. We connected to DTV from our site (34). Connection looks possible from most sites. Version cell signal was 3 bar (4G). The restrooms and showers are okay. They are reasonably clean, but could be better. One of the two sinks was stopped up. The laundry area is neglected and untidy; the equipment is old and rundown. The park is not exceptional, but not-ordinary either. I would certainly come back.

The campground is a small RV park, inside of a cabin rental complex. The complex is on a small lake but the RV sites are not on the water. The park and grounds are well maintained and exceptionally clean. There is a small laundry, two washers and driers, one drier was not working. The sites are small and shady; the pads are gravel and level. It is a dog friendly park. The park provides 75 plus cable TV channels. Their internet was reasonably fast. Our Version cell signal was 4 bars (4G). The restrooms and showers are modern and well maintained. The park is located near major shopping and has easy access to downtown Rapid City and is about 30 minutes from MT Rushmore.

A well maintained “Mom and Pop” campground. The sites are small but ample for our 28 feet; much larger than KOA-like parks. The sites are shaded, grass and reasonable level. There were big rigs staying here. There are two laundries. The showers are large, modern and very clean. The park is very dog friendly, with a fenced dog area. The park provides Wi-Fi. The signal is strongest in the front of the park. Our Version cell signal was 3 bars (4G). From our site (23) we received DTV. Reception possibilities look good to fair on most other sites. The restrooms and showers were maintained, heated and clean. The park is located 8 mile from West Glacier Park. Grocery shopping is limited in the local area. Columbia Fall has ample shopping, (20 miles). I recommend this park.

I’m not much on big commercial RV Parks, but sometimes it’s necessary. The park is well maintained and very clean. It provided all amenities such as laundry, pool, etc. The sites are small, gravel and level (typical for large commercial parks). Our awning was within 6 ft of the RV next to us. It is a dog friendly park, with two dog parks. The park provides 50 plus cable TV channels. Their internet was reasonably fast. Our Version cell signal was 3 bars (4G). The restrooms and showers were maintained, heated and clean. The park is located near major shopping and has easy access to downtown Missoula.

The park overlooks Henrys Lake, with tall snow covered peaks as a background. There are few trees in the park. It is clean, organized and maintained. The sites, on the outer loop, are reasonably large with gravel pads. DirecTV signal from any site is no problem. Our Verizon cell signal was 3 bars (4G). The restrooms and showers were maintained, heated and clean. The showers, in the men section, have no water temperature adjustment. The water was too hot for me to use.

Date of Stay:

The only RV Park in or near Dubois WY. It is a well maintained park located on the Wind River. The sites are large, level gravel slabs. There are ample trees on the sites. DTV signal from my site was no problem. Our Version cell signal was 3 bars (4G). The restrooms and showers were modern, clean and heated. The park is laid back. It is 50 miles from Teton Park and 80 miles to Jackson WY. There is a laundry.

A clean, well maintained park in the outskirts of Denver. The sites are very large with level cement slabs. There are only small trees on the sites. DTV signal from any site is no problem. Our Version cell signal was 3 bars (4G). The restrooms and showers were modern and clean. No soap provided in the restrooms. This is my second Colorado State Park, both were well above average for state parks, but they do nickel and dime you: Transaction/Reservation Fee $10 - $8/day Park Pass – shower water 50 cents per 3 minutes.

A clean well maintained park. The sites are very large. Sites 1 – 28 have little or no shade. All other sites have shade. The sites are gravel and reasonably level. From our site (37) we had no problem receiving the DTV signal. Our Version cell signal was 3 bars (3G). The restrooms and showers were modern and clean. No soap provided in the restrooms. You have to pay 50 cents per 3 minutes for shower water. There is a coin laundry, fish cleaning stations, and a sand beach. The town of Hasty, 3 mile from the park, has a small store and a post office. The nearest town with a supermarket is Lamar CO, 24 mile south.

A clean well maintained park. The sites are typical of most private RV parks (small). The sites are gravel, level and have small trees. The parks cable TV had many channels. The WI-Fi is fast. Verizon cell signal is strong. The owners were nice helpful people. However, the lady who checked me in went to extremes explaining the park rules. She made me wonder if she knew which one of us was the customer.

Date of Stay:

A well maintained Corps of Engineer Park overlooking Kaw Lake. Sites are large, paved and have privacy. Most sites are sloped front to back, some seriously. Many sites are on the Arkansas River/Kaw Lake. Restroom and showers are clean and reasonably maintained. No hand soap in the men’s restroom. Cell signal (Verizon) was weak. Not all sites receive cell signal. We received DTV signal on our site (61) but the shady sites make DTV reception a challenge. The staff went out of their way to be helpful. The only negative is the trash bins are not kept closed.

Date of Stay:

A small well maintained park. Sites are large, level, paved and spaced to give maximum privacy. Sites have picnic table on cement slabs under a fixed shelter. Many sites are on the Arkansas River, but vegetation obstructs the view. Sites 20 and 21 have the best river view. Our site 34 was on the river, and the site faces SW. Restroom and showers are clean and well maintained. No hand soap in the men’s restroom. Cell signal (Verizon) was strong (4G). We had no problem receiving DTV signal. We camped for 4 nights.
