When visiting Elkhart, this is the place everyone seems to stay. It's a good place to be. Our site was perfectly level and had full hood ups with 50 amp electricity. The owners of this park are always on hand and care about your stay. I commented that our stays at previous parks advertised Wi-Fi but we must have been too far away to get the signal. They changed our site was changed so that we would be very close to the Wi-Fi antenna. We had big storms when we were here and we wondered if it was going to get bad enough that we'd have to abandon the rig and go somewhere safe. If so, no directions were given as to where we should go. We pulled in our slides to reduce our surface area and rode out the storm.

It is an expensive campground, plus you have to pay a gate pass for yourself and auto if camping during the 10 week Chautauqua season in the summer. But, it is worth it to be in Lakeside which is a truly wonderful place. Sites along the back fence are far away from the sewer so I had to use a coupling device to stretch my sewer hose. To use Wi-Fi I had to go to a picnic table near the center of the campground. 50 sites are for permanent residents, 34 for transient visitors. Sites are rather small and not very level.

Date of Stay:

Sites were narrow. We weren't there on an especially busy time so they spaced out the sites so that no one was right next to us. Good, thoughtful planning. The Wi-Fi didn't work for us so we gave up on it. The antenna seemed to be very close but it still didn't work for us. I don't see any reason to have to return to the Amana Colonies again, but if we do, this is the campground we'll use.

We stayed here before about 6 years ago. Everything is the same. It's a nice, little campground with good facilities. The mother-daughter owners keep it looking cared for. We suffered from many mosquitoes, so couldn't stay outside the rig like we wanted. Anytime we need a campground in the area of Marshalltown, IA, this is the one we will use.

Great campground. It only offers electric service. There are three hydrants from which you can fill your tanks when water is needed. There is a 3 mile paved walk around a public lake only steps away from the campground. The lake offers fishing from shore or boat. Beware, we left the campground with two snakes in our motorhome! I don't know how you guard against them entering your rig, but it's better to know it is possible when staying in this campground. It was the fright of our life to discover them!

Basswood Resort is really just a campground, not a resort; don't get fooled by the name. It's a better RV park than most. They have a huge work force who are mostly work-campers. They keep the place looking nice. Everyone is friendly. The sites are rather small for a place that advertises itself as a resort. I'll stay there again when in the need of a campground north of Kansas City.

For an overnight stay, this small campground was excellent. It was very quiet, our site was level, we had full hook-ups with 50 Amp, sewer, and water. It's in the Passport America book so we only paid $14. The manager, Leon, was exceptionally friendly and helpful. He has three friendly Corgi dogs that love to play and beg. This campground is not listed in the Trailer Life Directory so we're glad we found it in Passport America. It would be easy to overlook it. The campground is less than a mile off I - 70 on the Indiana/Ohio line. You use the last exit in Indiana ( #156), but the road (US 40) takes you back into Ohio.

Jonesburg Gardens looks like a former KOA campground. It has many facilities available. The manager is very friendly and concerned about the welfare of the campers. Our Wi-Fi connection did not work. I did not press the issue. There were some pretty tight turns getting to our site with a lot of leaves and branches hitting the sides and roof of the motorhome. Our site was level and had 50 amp electricity, water, and sewer. It had easy access to I-70.

Really liked having 50 amp service. When the 50 amp breaker burned out in the pedestal, a replacement was installed within an hour. We were there over Memorial Day weekend, the park was super busy but not loud or bothersome in any way. There is a fenced in dog park available where the pooches can even swim if their owners let them. The side yard at our site was not very good, it had too much slope to it, but the parking pad was absolutely level. We will return to Mosquito Lake State Park again.

Upon entering, you have to find your own site and self register. The sites are small and mostly made up of oil workers and families. There are only about 10 sites available for RV's, the rest being tents. The site was absolutely level, with no grass, and very small. The signs say the park is patrolled by Watford City Police, but we never saw that being done. We never felt unsafe, though. This park served our purpose of visiting both units of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, but the south unit was about 80 miles away.

This campground is in a beautiful setting, overlooking an inland lake in the northern part of Wisconsin. You can catch it from highway US 2. We were here on a weeknight near the end of the season and there were no other travelers in the campground. There were many seasonal rigs on the grounds but not too many people. The woodland setting was very attractive and it appears the place must really have a lot of activity during the summer and on weekends. Our large site was absolutely level and nestled underneath some fir trees. The branches were cut off at a height that did not endanger anything on our roof. We received good TV reception out of Duluth/Superior from our antenna. If going through this area again, we would certainly return to this campground.

This is a small, run-down parking place that fulfills all the needs for a night's stay. The owner is very welcoming and helpful. We had full hook-ups with a long pull-through site. We would return to this campground.

Before talking about the campground, I have to warn RV drivers NOT to take rte. 89 out of Browning, MT. It is narrow, hilly, has many curves, is dangerous, and ends with a 3 mile descent into St. Mary at a 7% grade. The smell of overheated brakes permeates the air. Take 464 out of Browning instead. It's a better and safer road. The campground is OK. It's close to the park entrance and the few stores in St. Mary. It has its own restaurant on the grounds with very good meals. The sites are narrow and perhaps hard to park on and make level, but everything considered, it's a good place to stay when visiting Glacier National Park.

I like forested campgrounds and this is a perfect setting. Everyone is very helpful. A previous reviewer said 50 amp service is not available. That is wrong. Many sites have 50 amp. It's not as reliable as in some parks. As everyone began turning on their A/C's when it got hot, our electric meter went down to about 102 volts. Other than having to manage our electrical usage, everything about this campground is good. All square and round dancers will enjoy this campground.

This is still one of our favored camp grounds. The sites are large and very private. The parking pads are level. I wish it was updated with water and 50 amp service, but we love it anyway. It's great for bike riding. You can swim along the beach of Lake Erie or in an inland alcove. There is a mile long boardwalk nature walk, a golf course, a lodge with great dining, and outdoor activities for all ages.
