This is a gem of an overnight stop located right off I-65. Cash or check is required for payment and the owner was very friendly and helpful and lives on the adjacent property. No frills but nice, long pull through sites with full hook ups if needed. There are no trees but we prefer that. We chose a long pull thru with water and electric only as we only hooked up electric. Easy on/off the interstate and even though it was so close, noise was not an issue. Did not use internet but our Verizon service worked well. Must be self contained as we did not see any bathhouse or laundry. We will stop here again.

Virginia has some wonderful state parks but they are way over priced. $42 for a site with just water and electric is way too expensive. No amenities were open while we were there. Maintenance seems to be lacking as the pads for the picnic tables were overgrown with grass. We will now only stay here as a one night stopover. Too bad because we loved Virginia State Parks.

Campground is located near I-75 and there is traffic noise but it did not bother us. Staff friendly and we were escorted to our site. Site was gravel and unlevel. Site was barely long enough to accommodate our 37 ft 5th wheel and we had to leave our tailgate down and back as far as we could under our 5th wheel to park our truck on site. Sites are a combination of very small back ins and some pull thrus. Back ins are parallel to the road and difficult to back into. There are some permanent campers but their sites were very neat. Verizon cell and mifi worked well. Rural setting with a pond on site. Easy on/off the interstate. We would stay here again.

This is a small, lovely, family owned campground located in a rural area right off I-64. The campground was not officially open for the season (1 May) but a call to the campground and we, along with several others were accommodated. Easy on/off the interstate and there was some traffic noise but it was not bothersome to us. Water was off when we arrived but owner turned it on for our use. Sites are narrow (some sites are not level) and so are the access roads and we had to drive on the grass to enter our pull thru site. Fresh gravel had just been put down making us worry about getting stuck but we were fine. Utilities worked well and there is a freshly painted bathhouse/office located on the property. Payment is by check or cash with an Escapees discount available. Owner is friendly and helpful. Campground is located on a working farm but smells are not an issue as the campground is up on a hill away from the livestock area. Views are beautiful. We would stay here again.

We stayed at this location several years ago when the main campground was open adjacent to the current sites. Due to the owners health, the main campground is closed and has been sold. Owner established about 7 full hook up sites on their property. Owner is extremely friendly and helpful. Very knowledgeable on how to place our RV so we could use our rooftop satellite successfully through the surrounding trees. No facilities so must be self contained. Easy on/off the interstate. Great for a couple nights stop We would stop here again.

This campground is easy on/off I-29. Do not take the first turn for the state park off of IA-2. Instead take the second turn at the advice of the ranger. I would not call this state park big rig friendly. There are only one or two sites for a big rig and low hanging trees are an issue. This state park is suffering from a lack of funding and staff and it shows. It seems that the staff spent the majority of the summer correcting a water issue and during that time there was no water available even in the bathhouse. The water is now back in service. The roads in the campground are very narrow and there is a section where a downed tree took out part of the road. We asked and were granted permission to trim some trees so we could exit safely. We did not use the bathhouse or dump station. Verizon cell was marginal and sporadic, Our ATT mifi card would also not work. The ranger was friendly and helpful trying to make our stay a pleasant one. There are several truck stops and a couple of restaurants located right across the state line in Nebraska near I-29 but beware as they only sell bio diesel. Because this state park is not big rig friendly, we would not stay here again.

This is a county park located in an urban area. We had some difficulty finding this place due to the sign being down off the main road. The RV sites are located at the back of the park with tent sites in a separate location. You pick a site, park, and then go register. Electric is the only utility available but there is a dump station. I did not see a water fill. This is a heavily treed park but they have been trimmed and pose no danger to RV sides and roof. We were able to use our roof satellite and there are also sites with shade. Did not use bathhouse so I cannot comment on it. Staff was friendly and helpful. Verjzon cell and MiFi worked well. We would stay here again if in the area.

This is a good place for a overnight stop. Easy on/off the interstate. You can see it from the campground but cannot hear any road noise. Long pull thrus with well placed utilities. Some sites have shade and for those who use a rooftop satellite, there are wide open sites. Trees are trimmed and cause no issues. Did not use bathhouse or laundry. Verizon cell and mifi worked fine. Staff was very friendly. We would stop here again if in the area.

We liked this state park very much. It is located out in the middle of nowhere so shopping requires some planning. There really is no place to park at the Visitor's Center with your RV. We had a reservation so check in was not required. The campground loops are located a mile or so from the Visitor's Center. We stayed in the new section which is wide open with few trees and is much better for a big rig. Site was level and utilities adequate. Very nice dump station with easy access. Did not check out or use the bathhouse. Verizon cell/mifi worked fine. We arrived on a Saturday for 3 nights and by Sunday, we were the only campers in our loop. For those with military benefits, Mountain Home AFB is about a 25 mile drive and has a nice BX/Commissary. We would stay here again if in the area.

Price reflects Good Sam discount. Easy on/off the interstate. Do not follow the signs on the billboard advertising the campground because they are just trying to get you to drive through town. Follow your GPS and avoid the downtown while towing. Utilities were adequate and well placed. Did not use or check out the bathhouse/laundry. We requested a satellite friendly site but the trees interfered. Verizon cell/mifi worked well. Site was level and a pull thru. There are some long term campers in the rear if the campground and a mobile home park located at the entrance. Check out the local Baker County Museum and the BLM Oregon Trail Museum. We would stay here again if in the area.

This is an urban campground located within the city limits of Yakima. Our campsite did have full hook ups but we only connected to electric. The hook ups were located at the very rear of the site and not convenient. Verizon cell/mifi worked well. I would not call this campground big rig friendly for several reasons. We had a pull thru site that was long enough but so narrow that we barely missed the fire pit with the truck (on the right) and the utilities with the 5th wheel (on the left). The utilities have concrete barriers that you find in parking lots to protect them because I am sure they have been taken out by RVers trying to park. The trees desperately need trimming and we felt fortunate to escape without roof damage. We talked to the ranger about it and he was ambivalent at best. Watering occurs every day which makes the grass green but floods the streets and hits your vehicle as you drive to your site. We would not stay here again.

This is a military campground located in an urban area. The reservation system was down so it was "first come, first served" during this time period. Reservation system is supposed to be back on line 1 Oct 14. Must access the base via the commercial gate which is open 24/7. Sites are well spaced from each other with a mix of back ins and pull thrus. We found an open space. parked, and then headed to Outdoor Recreation, Bldg 1022 to register. There is no place at Outdoor Recrearion to park RV to register. Utilities were fine but did not use the boathouse/laundry. Verizon cell/MiFii and ATT MiFi worked well. Campground is located right across from the runways but noise was not an issue. There appear to be some long term campers in the campground. Good BX and Commissary. No diesel fuel on base as far as we could tell. We would stay need again if in the area,

This is a good campground for an overnight stop. Easy on/off the interstate but there is road noise and could be bothersome to those sensitive to that. We only hooked up to electric so I cannot comment on the other utilities. Verizon cell and MiFi worked well. We did not use the campground Wi-Fi or bath house. Owners were friendly and recommended a drive up to Angel Lake. It is not for the faint of heart because it is on a twisting, narrow road but has spectacular views. Also give out a coupon for local restaurant, Bella's, that had pretty decent food. We would stay here again if in the area.

This is a great campground for a night or two. Easy on/off the interstate and a Passport America park. Utilities were well placed and this has to be one of the longest pull-through sites we have ever seen. Some shade and some open sites if you have a roof top satellite. Owners were very friendly and trying very hard to make this campground attractive. Verizon cell and MiFi worked well. We did not use the bath house or the campground Wi-Fi if they had it. This is located in a small town and there is an adequate grocery store and several restaurants, although I would not recommend the Chinese restaurant. We would stay here again if in the area,

This is an urban campground located right off I-70 in Fruita. There is noise from the interstate and from nearby train tracks although we are not bothered by that but some would be. Our site was concrete, level, and a pull-through with 30 amp, water, and a covered picnic table. Voltage was low and Verizon cell service was good. It is well maintained but the ground was soggy from so much watering and the mosquitoes were terrible. We called in advance to inquire about trees and to even get a suggestion for an adequate site since we are not from the area. Low hanging trees in campgrounds are a pet peeve of ours and we were told trees would not be a problem, but in fact they were. There are some low hanging trees at the entrance to the park that you must dodge and we had trees scraping the side of our RV at our site. Not all sites have issues with trees so choose wisely. It is a lovely place for being located in town. We would stay again but be much more selective on the site we choose. Our rate includes a $7.00 day use fee tacked on to the camping fee.
