We stayed four nights, adding one night to our planned stay of three nights. Service has been friendly. They didn't have a full service site the first night so gave us one with water and electric. We were told that when site 65 opened up we could move there in the morning and then come to the office and settle up for our stay. Once on the site we extended the stay as the internet was good and electric also good. It rained while here and our site is fine but the roads are muddy. There are potholes in the main entry roads but in the campsite areas the roads are better, still sloppy with muddy water.

The rate was for 50 Amp service. We stayed one night for our ferry reservation to Port aux Basques, Newfoundland, the next morning. We had the best site in the whole park, overlooking water with hills in the background on two sides, the church in Little Bras d'Or across the water and nothing between us and the scenery. Without a doubt, one of the prettiest settings we've ever had in a campground. Not everyone had sites this nice. Maybe that is why the price was so high. Maybe it is just because they are close to the ferry landing. Anyway, that is a price we seldom see in RV Parks. My only complaint was that the grass had recently been cut and the clippings were thick on the top of the grass. It rained and there was no way to walk around the campsite without picking up a load of wet grass clippings on shoes. We had to wash our shoes off each time before entering the coach. It would be a great service to customers to bag the grass clippings in the camping sites at least. This is a rainy area so this can't be an unusual condition.

This is a family campground which runs baseball training camps for kids. There are two baseball fields in the park, one of professional dimensions. We were there to visit the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, about 12 miles from the campground. The access road off Highway 28 starts with a very steep hill and then winds uphill for several miles. Near the top of the hill you turn left at the T and the road gets even smaller with trees impinging on the roadway. It is a short distance but we had to pull over to allow opposing traffic to pass without driving through trees. Once in the park, there is plenty of room to maneuver. Office personnel were very friendly. Our site was located next to some cabins which housed a youth baseball team that was competing in a tournament in town. Parental supervision was lacking, children left trash left on our site and in our fire ring. Noise wasn't a problem, all activity ceased by quiet time. The sewer connections was an 8" tall pipe, gravity flow was not possible. I used our macerator to pump the tanks rather than fight with the 3" hose full of sewage. Wifi was working for us which was good because we were pretty much off the grid for cell phone service.

We stayed just one night. Very basic campground, we had a level parking spot and could drive in and out without difficulty. The owner was very friendly. He met us and led us to our site. We followed him as he stopped at several sites then decided to take us to another. Finally settled on one near the highest area of the park. It was a nice location. We were pretty much in a field with utilities. That describes the whole park. Nearest site was 50 feet away. Payment is cash or check, no credit cards. The campground can be seen from Highway 9 traveling south from Martinsburg. Take the next turn-off to the south, two left turns and the road ends in the campground.

For a longer term stay we were assigned a back in site which was high in rear, low in front. When level the rear was almost on the ground. The sewer connection was on a mound and the pipe was a good 6 inches above the ground. I went to the the office and was given a different site. While it was still high in the rear and low in the front, it was better than the first. The sewer, water and electric were at the rear of the site and the sewer was still an elevated pipe. This wouldn't be our first choice in the area but we were there during the 4th of July and the had space available so grateful to have a place to stay. When parking we were given instructions to drive in front of the closed service station to enter the park. This eliminated the sharp turn mentioned by a previous reviewer. There is truck parking behind the motel and that is a good staging area to park while checking in for a site.

We stayed one night traveling through the area. The park is well designed with nice spaces and good pads for parking. It is clearly a heavily used park in the winter and would be a great place for a group rally. The grounds are attractive and well maintained. Office personnel were pretty neutral, not welcoming, all business. Electric and wifi were excellent.

We stayed for just one night. Owner lives on site and was very friendly and helpful. Gravel site was clean, hookups well designed and easily done. We had a pull through site, not perfectly level but well within acceptable range. There are many back in sites which are smaller and not as well kept. Most sites were empty when we were there. The area is rural and quiet.

We stay at this campground frequently as we have family on the north side of Denver, Arvada area. This stay was less satisfactory than previous times. We arrived a day early so had to move to a different site than was reserved. The reserved site was very high at front end so had to park toward back of site. The asphalt pad was uneven and narrow, offering little choice for positioning and when slides were out, bushes were in contact with the coach on the utility side. Contacted office and maintenance came out and trimmed one bush but the other was left untouched. The electric is good, wifi is usable. We have stayed at most other parks in the Denver area over the last ten years and this one is by far the cleanest and best maintained. I believe that I detect a change in management that may signal a decline in the condition of the park. There seem to be some longer term residents who are not living up to park standards. We saw at least one dog roaming free in the early morning.

We stay here occasionally and this stop was no different than in the past. The friendly efficient staff member checked us in quickly and assigned our site. The paved site was clean and neat. These sites are big enough for the RV and a picnic table. Utilities are well located for a motorhome. The rate quoted is for Good Sam discount. Good value for urban area.

This is a neat well-kept campground with a friendly helpful staff. We were assigned a site by the dumpster and could not get DirecTV from our roof mounted dish. I had specified our TV situation when reserving on-line and there were empty sites available elsewhere in the park. We parked in front of the patio, almost in the street to get TV reception. Utilities were located at the rear of the site and I had to use extensions for water, electric and sewer to connect. The top of the electric box was knee high and the receptacle for the 50A plug was just 4 inches off the ground. I had to bend the power cord sharply and lay the surge protector flat on the ground. There were other sites with similar electrical connections but I saw many others with more conventional power posts. I would inspect the assigned site before accepting if we return in the future. We stayed 3 nights.

This park is near the airport and right next to the interstate highway. The pull through sites are further from the interstate than other sites. We had one of two 50amp pull through sites available at 7:30 p.m. the night we stayed. The roads are broken pavement with gravel. There is more gravel than pavement. There is a concrete pad, but only our back wheels were on the pad. There are trees, but many need trimming. We had to scrape through trees in order to get around vehicles parked into the roadway to get to our spot. We were under a tree and had no satellite TV. Arriving late, we didn't have a WiFi code, so didn't have that service. Over fence from our site is a salvage yard of some kind. Not the best neighborhood. We stayed here because it was closest to our route of travel. We likely won't stay here again.

We made reservations on-line. When we had to change them there was a $5 charge. We stayed three nights. The park is quiet at night, a little noise from the traffic on McKinney Falls Parkway and an occasional bit of jet noise from the airport that is about 2 miles east. The park is not in the approach path for the airport. We paid $24 for 50 amp service. The pull through site is a crescent off to the side of the road with the water/power post between the road and parking. I almost scraped the power post with our 40 foot motor home, backed up repositioned and got into the site with a few branches lightly brushing the coach. Some tree trimming would help. We were able to level on this site, the campground is on a gently sloping hillside and may not be as level on other sites. Our site was near the top of the hill closest to the parkway. There is a low hanging branch (10 ft) over the sewer dump so we were unable to use it. Power is good and there is shade at least on one side. Even with trees we had satellite TV on our site and good AT&T phone and T-Mobile hot spot coverage. Staff was friendly and courteous, after hours check in not so convenient, but available. We will stay here again.

When I called for reservation they didn't ask for a credit card, the reservation was there when we arrived. Friendly, efficient staff, nice grounds, a few trees need trimming. We had a pull through site and found it to be quite nice. The site was small gravel, utilities well located about halfway through a long site. The site was reasonably level. This is an excellent park, close to our favorite RV Service Center and also the regional service center for our diesel engine. We will stay here again.

This is a great overnight stop. Easy access to the highway, concrete roads to and in the park, concrete pads, lots of pull through sites with plenty of room for a big motor home and a toad. We're not casino fans, but found everyone friendly and the park very well maintained.

We stayed here for 10 days and found the park to meet our needs. We had a back-in site on gravel with satellite TV and good Wi-Fi. Shopping is across the road. Forks Visitor Center and Logging Museum 1/2 mile south has excellent mill and logging tour. Many Olympic National Park attractions within an hours drive including beaches. We found the town and the area to be very interesting and friendly. Owners friendly and park clean and neat.
