Rate is based on the monthly rate. Electricity is extra. Beautiful park with large sites. We stayed in an extra long back-in site near the clubhouse. WiFi worked ok for email and Facebook. Cable TV was recently fixed so that set top boxes are no longer necessary. Wednesday nights everyone gets together for a social time with snacks and wine, beer, etc. Saturday nights are "Grill Night" with 30-40 people bringing dinner to put on the grills. This park is 3 miles from the Breckenridge Ski Resort with free county bus service stopping on the highway just outside the resort. The free parking lot is a short drive.

Great park. We had reserved a back-in site but it had low-hanging branches that would have scraped our roof. The staff moved us to a pull-through site at no extra charge. They also accommodated a departure delay. The park uses TengoInternet and staff said the equipment had all recently been upgraded. Also said most residents are long-term and are using cable Internet rather than Wi-Fi. Nevertheless the Wi-Fi service was useless for most of our stay. Even at 5 AM Tengo Wi-Fi performance was substandard. If Wi-Fi was good I would have given the resort a 10.

Park was OK for a short stay. Friendly staff. Unusually long set of rules requiring written acknowledgement. Site was long and level back-in. Lots of road noise even though we were not all that close to the roads. Also had some aircraft noise from the regional airport about 1 mile away.

This is a nice campground for an overnight stop. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Led us to our site and helped set up utilities. Wi-Fi is good. Site is level with good gravel coverage. Plenty long for 39' RV and truck. I would stay here again.

Rate was a group rate. This is a nice park, but sites are close together and are short. 39 foot 5th wheel just barely fits with the truck parked sideways at the front. Had to park the truck on the grass, which the rules prohibit. Very tight. Site had poor drainage. It rained one day and the site had standing water for the entire day and was still wet the next morning. WiFi was good. Did not use the cable. Office closed at 5. We arrived at 5:15 and found a welcome packet and site assignment. Park is on the north side of Branson and is a short drive to many of the attractions.

If you're coming for the lake; this is the place for you, as long as you only need electric. We had a beautiful lake view on the Inlet Cove. Sites are pretty short for a Colorado State Park. We were in one of the longest and it was pretty short for our 39' 5th wheel. Hard to get the trailer into a level position. GPS had some problems finding a direct route to the park and wanted to take roundabout routings. Fair antenna reception of Denver TV stations.

Attractive park with lots of trees. Sites were long and relatively wide - no crowding with neighbors. Wi-Fi was limited to 1 hour access and automatic disconnect. Didn't help; it was so bad as to be unusable, although it was fairly good at 4:00 am.

Park is nice looking and has friendly staff. The wife thought it was very attractive. It's very convenient to I-80, but far enough away to be quiet. Navigation within the park was ok for our long-bed, crew-cab, pulling a 39' 5th wheel. Pull through sites were very narrow and a bit on the short side. Many sites are shaded, although ours was not.

This is the same park listed as Franklin KOA. Sites are gravel and not very level. since we were there overnight I didn't want to unhitch. I couldn't get the rig level while hitched up. The site width is OK, but the gravel portion is narrow. Wi-Fi is poor. Could barely connect and performance was erratic; mostly poor. Manager knew this and said I could come to the office if necessary. Couldn't find the dumpster. It wasn't where the map showed it. Park could use some signs indicating path to exit, site numbers, etc. A little pricey for the quality of the park.

This is a very basic facility that's convenient for an overnight stay. There's some highway noise from I30, but the park is far enough away that it's not disturbing. Fairly level gravel pull through sites with easy navigation around the park for a 40' fifth wheel. Park manager said they should have WiFi set up shortly, and possibly cable TV. The park is behind the Ole Sawmill Cafe and is close to a grocery store and other commercial properties. Although there are no amenities, for $20 it's a good value.

This park is fine for a one or two night stay. Easy to navigate in the campground. We had a nice long pull through site with concrete pad - one of three. The rest were gravel. Good Wi-Fi and a friendly manager. Trees are very young so there's no shade yet. The park is located 1/2 mile from the highway down a very narrow tree lined road. There are no signs until you get to the park, so call ahead for directions to make sure you're on the right road.

This is a beautiful park with lots of shady tall trees. We stayed in the Big Pine Loop which has the longer pull-through spaces. There's a nice path around the lake. Very quiet at night and most of the time during the day as well. The large central area inside the loop gives you a spacious feeling if on an inside site. There are only a few sites suitable for 40' rigs. Most are a little shorter. Even though pull through, the sites can be difficult to get into. The sites are not all level and all need repaving. Utilities are good and there's a park host on hand in the loop if you need information or assistance. There are a few over the air TV stations, enough clear sky to aim a satellite dish, but bring your own internet. This is a very pleasant place to stay and if they'd improve the sites a little, I'd give it a 10.

Park is mostly filled with long-term residents and long-term weekend/holiday RVs. The long-term sites are well shaded and further away from the highway. We we there for 4 days and were located very close to Interstate 35. The highway noise was very loud and non-stop. Internet service was from TengoInternet. After 30 minutes of unsuccessfully trying to log in, I called Tengo and they did something that got the system working. However, performance was extremely erratic and was mostly awful. Awful even for text-based forums and email. Forget watching a ten second video clip. Much of the time we were there, I had to use our limited Verizon bandwidth to get a reliable connection. The park has a car and RV wash facility, but it has a 13' clearance. There was a $2/day surcharge for electricity, even though temps were cool and there was no likelihood of using air conditioning. I think we would try to find a different park next time we're in the area.

Rate was for a rally. Very friendly staff led us to our large pull-through site. Very easy to navigate through the park. Utilities were well placed. Campground was neat and attractive. Rally facilities were also nice. One detractor was that the WiFi was unusable for most of our 6 night stay. Access point signal strength was so low that connections often could not be made, or were dropped quickly. Called the office our first day and they expressed surprise. Nothing was fixed however. Other campers in our group were also unable to connect.

At first glance this looks like a high-end resort and it's priced that way. But most of the sites are long-term residents. The park has large trees that provide needed shade as it's pretty hot. Mid September temps were over 100 for our entire stay. Our section was close enough to a major highway to hear quite a bit of traffic noise. While the interior roads are generally wide and easy to navigate, the circle our site was in was not navigable because of people parking their trucks partially in the roadway. The exit roads had several places where trees had low-hanging branches that need to be trimmed. WiFi did not work in our section of the park even though the WiFi tower was next to our RV. I called the first night to report the problem. The next evening it was still down. I went to the office. they seemed surprised and gave no indication of my call the night before. 24 hours later I stopped at the office again and told them this was my 3rd day in a row asking them to fix the WiFi. Again they seemed totally surprised that it was not working and that I had reported it twice before. Day 4 and the morning of Day 5 it was still down. My conclusion is that the park has informal maintenance procedures that simply don't work - they never wrote anything down when I spoke with them and they never followed up with me. My opinion is that this park was probably once quite nice but is on the way downhill.
