Rate based on monthly rate. (FHU, wifi, cable TV) Not a resort but a nice rv park - plans to grow and possibly become resort. Seems to have more permanent type campers. This is a nice clean campground near a beautiful lake (Lake Jordan). Would recommend staying here if you have family in the area. Wifi sporadic - drops periodically. Cable TV is in transition - need a box from BrightHouse. Need to be self contained - no comfort station. Nice boardwalk to the lake. Boat launch within a mile. Sites are narrow and gravel. Need some designated additional parking areas - people using vacant sites for parking. Happy to have the park in the area. Would stay here again due to location.

Water is from a well and has a odd taste. Sites are narrow and was difficult to maneuver with our 36' - however saw 40' MH parked there. Had to trim trees to keep them from dragging on top of our 5vr. The road into the park is difficult to find the first time - and potholes makes entering and exiting difficult. Park has a storage parking area as you enter full of very old boats, trailers, and RVs. This is a PA park and you can't beat the price for the area. The over air channels work in the area. The mosquitoes were beyond awful - two drainage areas on both sides of the park must encourage their breeding areas. We didn't spend much time in the park so it met our needs. We will probably stay there again since we have family in the area. Rate based on monthly rate.

A driveway with about 40 sites for overnight campers - used Passport America so got a great rate but it was just W/E. There is a dump station. If all sites are full I would say they would be tight. There is one 50amp and 2-30amp at each shared pedestal so be sure if you want a 50 amp that your neighbor is not already using it. The seasonal campers were friendly. The campground is clean and in a good location - about 10 mi from Shipshewana. We would return if in the area in the future and we camped in a 5th wheel. (The pool was closed for the season and there is a small playground if that is important)

Site was a little short, but a level site with FHU - used the Passport America discount - check in was great - country campground with 2 small lakes and a beautiful chapel. There are a lot of seasonal campers the other side of the park. Seems to be a popular location for weddings. The road off the interstate is in poor condition. We would stay here again if we were in the area. We camped in a 5th wheel. The pool was closed for the season. Fishing is allowed but is catch & release.

This park is not one that takes Passport America so unless you have the Golden Buckeye discount or a disabled veteran this park is $38/night. It has cabins, FHU sites, and E only sites - we hiked to the covered bridge which is 4M one way from the campground. In the summer I would think the stream running thru the park would be fun with tubes - we passed several tub launch locations. Our site was short for our rig and was under a tree that dropped huge walnuts or nuts of some kind - had to sweep the top before closing slides. We would probably not stay here especially during the summer - seems high for what you get. OHIO parks & recreation should compare other states for pricing. Our site was covered in straw I guess because of the mud.

This is a Passport America park, but be sure and tell them when you call. For the money in the area this is a OK park. The sites are along the mountainside behind the gas state/store/restaurant. It is located a little way out of Deadwood city. We stayed here 3 nights and it was a nice stopover. Our site was a long enough pull-through gravel site and had good Wi-Fi.

This is the state park, not the expensive resort with the same name only 3 miles down the road. There are 28 full hookup pull-through (50 amp) grass/gravel somewhat level sites. There are other tenting and electric-only sites. The park is rustic and not as well maintained as other state parks, but very nice. There is a fire ring/grill. The other sites would be considered lake view. Did have issues with the tiny bugs coming in when you open the door. The location is remote to major cities and I would come with supplies. We would return if in the area.

Found this campground after being turned away from one about 1 mile away - and she did NOT refer us. Discovered it on the Milepost page and called for a site. This park is about 10 miles south of Prince George and in a country setting. It was great to have 50 amp, very nice to have Passport America discount applied to nightly charge, and was very quiet. Would not recommend unless self contained. Full hookups are sweet and Wi-Fi worked well. This is a great overnight site or if working in the area I can see the advantage. Discussed needed some TLC to spruce it up a little but seems to be a work in progress. We would stay here again for the price.

Wish we could have read the reviews but wasn't sure we were staying here. I will have to agree with the other reviews - seems to be a park for more permanent type residents. Didn't give the appearance of a nice campground anywhere you look. The sites are somewhat level, gravel sites. Ours was a back-in at the front of the park. Had no idea the cost of parks in this area was so high - would choose another park or area if we return to this area.

Date of Stay:

Agree with the last review - sewer hookups not only are too high but next to an older water connection - and an odor coming from the water drainage under the water faucet. The breaker flipped and no one was at the park that could help us. Finally figured it out for ourselves - after walking around in the rain. The location is right after you enter Stewart and about 5 miles from the Hyder, AK crossing and the bear viewing area. Recommend going to see the bears and Salmon glacier - you don't have much choice in where to stay - one in Stewart and one in Hyder. Bring supplies as you are remote and they can be expensive.

Pulled in to stay one night on our way to Haines, AK . Found this to be a very open park and one of the cleanest and nicest we've stayed in since we left the lower 48. Was disappointed the Wi-Fi is no longer available in the campground (only in the office) since too many people were downloading movies. The sites are large gravel sites with trees and grassy areas. The price is a little high ($40/with Good Sam discount) but know they have a limited time to make their year. I would stay here again and recommend it over the parking lots for the same price in the cities - so worth the drive out of town. Owner is extremely nice and the campfire is really nice in the evening.

The GPS took us around to the fish canning area - found the park near downtown area which is nice if you want to walk around. Valdez doesn't offer much in the way of shopping but there is a Safeway. Park is a gravel parking lot with level sites. Found them close with picnic table sitting near neighbors hookups. Located very close to the harbor. Visitors from Europe had children that thought it was OK to run between people's sites and play games. WiFi worked okay, but went down a couple times. We camped here in a 5th wheel.

Date of Stay:

It was an OK spot for an overnight on our way south from our Alaskan trip - the rest rooms the next morning were so nasty. We had a somewhat level gravel pull-thru site. The spaces are close but about what is to be expected on the Alaskan highway. We would probably choose to stay at another park near here. The cafe is famous for their cinnamon rolls - got some awesome bran muffins. They do give a discount on the gas $.04/gal if you stay there. Wifi is not at the site - must go to the restaurant to get it.

This is not a resort for someone wanting a pool, playground, etc. It is however a nice campground especially compared to a lot of parks in Alaska. The gravel sites are a little close - currently can't open our awning due to large MH parked next to us. The owner is beyond nice and is very helpful especially if you want information about fishing or site seeing in the area. The park recently became a Passport America park. We have stayed a week and will probably stay longer just because it is a short drive to Homer, Kenai, or Soldtona and a day trip to Seward. Wifi is slow but works. We would stay here again if in the area.

First I called a reserved a back-in site for $36 and when we got there we were sardined into a pull thru site for $40 - could almost reach out and touch the neighbors. This is just a dusty gravel parking lot - our site was so un-level the tires on the driver side were off the ground. The only good thing was it was a block from the sign forest and across the street from the grocery store and a small city lake (infested with mosquitoes). Would find another park if possible. We camped in a 5th wheel. Spent a lot of time sharing horror stories of the trek to and from Alaska with the neighbors.
