Custer State Park is a wonderful park with wild game, beautiful hiking trails, and great motorcycling roads. Game Lodge campground is in a convenient location on the east side of the park. The campground has a variety of sites, some full sun, mostly partly shaded and a few in full shade. We were in site 32 in full shade with our 31' Toy Hauler. One prime site is #28 which is mostly shaded and along the small creek. For larger RV's I recommend sites 4, 6, and 20. Tenters would enjoy sites 30 31, 37, 41, and 43 which adjoin the creek. There is one pull thru #40. Restrooms and showers were clean and nice to use. Evening programs in the barn in the campground are enjoyable. There is so much to do in the area that we weren't able to do it all in 6 days.

Traveling from I-90 you will have to pass through the Badlands National Park and pay the fee. We found this to be a typical KOA campground. The benefit of KOAs is you pretty much know what you are going to get in facilities and site selection. Our full hook up site was under several trees and shade is welcome here in the summer. Site and entry roads were gravel and in good shape. Most sites were level pull throughs. The grounds and facilities were in good condition, through the bathrooms were dated. Our picnic table was in poor condition with peeling paint. The pool was very nice. Value for the money was fair, even though we normally don't pay this much for a campsite. Sewer hookup was above ground level which makes it difficult to utilize.

This is a campground the locals hope you don't discover! Situated on a small lake in the SE corner of South Dakota the campground is shaded by tall cottonwood trees. Roads and camp pads are gravel and cleaned after each visit. Premium lakeside sites are beautiful and filled most nights. Restrooms are modern and clean. Recommend reservations for weekends.

     

F.W. Kent Park

Very nice county park with well spaced sites. It is hilly terrain so many of the sites require leveling. Flatter sites available at the bottom of the hills. Good selection of pull thru and back in sites. Located about 12 miles from the Amana Colonies and close to Iowa City. Having wi-fi with excellent speed was a nice surprise! Beach was closed due to poor water quality while we where here. First come, first serve but we called the ranger to check on availability on the way there.

Our second visit to this park during the last three years. One of the best features of this park is its consistency. The park was excellent during our last visit and nothing has changed. Excellent location, beautiful white sand beaches, nicely separated sites, and the cleanest bathrooms. The hosts always rake the pea gravel on your site before you arrive and ensure it is clean. Reservations are needed but if you need a one night stay call since we notice sites are available even when the campground full site is posted. One of our favorite state campgrounds in the South!

Very large campground that is run very efficiently. Nice size sites with concrete pads and sitting areas. Sites are nicely spaced but little privacy since there is no underbrush and limited trees. Full hookups all work well but the park is having ongoing issues with their Wi-Fi. Wonderful location with excellent bike paths. Beautiful swimming pool, tennis courts, and several lakes to kayak or canoe. Be aware that starting in November the park is starting to fill with snowbirds who stay for the winter.

Good location for a one night transit stay or for a longer visit to the area. The owners and staff are wonderful people that go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Our site had a cement pad, a small wooden deck, and a fire ring. The campground offers a RV repair service! One improvement that is needed is a remodeling of the bathroom. We highly recommend this RV park.

Rate is based on weekly rate for Escapee member. Typical RV park with good access roads, fairly level gravel sites, and good full hook ups. Restrooms and showers are very clean and neat. Laundry is clean, in good repair, and reasonable. This is a good location to visit the Knoxville area but it it an hour from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Many of the people staying here are full time RVers who are friendly and knowledgeable. Park personal go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We would stay here again.

Stayed here for 6 nights in site 52. Well designed campground consisting of three loops with multiple spurs. This means all sites are lakefront, there is limited traffic, and many sites have good privacy. Many sites are large and allow for easy backing. While there is no sewer, I don't penalize for that in my rating since you know that going in. Clean modern bathrooms in two of the loops. Good security with gate attendants from 8 AM to 10 PM and locked gates at night. Nice central location near town for activities. We love COE campgrounds and this one is one of the best we have stayed in.

Full disclosure - we drove through this campground but decided not to stay here. Sites are small gravel areas not well defined. Very limited sites for large rigs. Suitable for a one night stop but there are better choices in the area for longer stays.

We give the campground itself a 6 while the park deserves a 9. There are 5 loops in the camping area and they vary in quality. Sites are close together in most areas with little privacy. Most of the sites are un-level and have front to back sloping. Avoid loop C where sites are very small and on top of one another. There are some nice tent sites (including park and walk in). Bathrooms are typical state facilities. The park is TN's largest and offers wonderful hiking opportunities. It has great creek swimming near the nature center as well as a pool. It is very scenic with multiple creeks and waterfalls. Park is heavily used. Reservations suggested in the summer.

If you are looking for a great stop near I-40 in Western Oklahoma, this is it! The park has 5-6 campgrounds offering different levels of services and site types. We stay at Cottonwood Campground (formerly called Southside) which is located inside the south entrance. There are 10 full hookup pull thru sites located in the back of the campground. The sites are fairly level with a gravel surface. Since this was a one night transit stop for us we did not look around the park which has a nice lake, marina, and beach. It seems like a nice spot for one night or a relaxing longer stay.

This park is in a great location to explore central New Mexico. The Buffalo Grove section of the park has cement pads, a covered picnic table, and many pull thru sites. It sits on a hillside overlooking the lake. All of the facilities were clean. Special thanks to the NM Core of Engineers who kept the park open during the federal shutdown. You will want to bring needed supplies since the closest supermarket is a 30 minute drive away.

We used this as a one night stop on our way across New Mexico. This is a small basic RV park located right off an exit of I-40 in Grants. Park has gravel sites which were fairly level and provide ample room. Sites are close together with no privacy. Restrooms are newly remodeled and clean. Park looks tidy and the long term campers maintain their trailer and sites. The price is for an upgraded pull through site with full hookups and basic cable. Wi-Fi service was good. Price and location were good.

This state park has a variety of sites to meet everyone's needs. Sites in the lower loop (Quail) has some trees, but sites are pretty open with little understory for privacy. Our site #28 was a large pull thru which provided room for a 31' trailer, our trucks, and 2 motorcycles. Bathrooms were kept clean and tidy. The park's location is great for touring Cottonwood, Sedona, and Jerome. There is plenty to do in the area! We walked from the campground along the Verde River to historic downtown. We are planning to return for a longer stay in the future. Reservations are recommended for the weekends.
