Stopped here so we could have AC on a hot humid night. For overnighters they have a number of pull thru sites near the entrance with water and electric which was all I wanted. Very friendly and helpful staff at checkin. Nice areas to walk the dogs. Didn't try any of the amenities as we were there for only the one night. Metal recycling place across the road is noisy during the day but they don't start until 8:30 or so. Wifi was ok but sluggish until late in the evening. Gas station near the interstate had great diesel prices.

Very nice urban park. Sites are very close together as expected. Park was very well maintained with well trimmed grass and flowers. Everything was clean. Laundry was good and open 24 hours. Wifi usually worked well but got slow over the busy weekend. Satellite and OTA tv worked great. Getting in requires navigating a narrow residential street. Very convenient to old town St Charles for great restaurants and shopping. We were far from the highway so noise wasn't any issue. Did notice it was worse at the other end when walking the dogs. Most sites are pull thru with just the perimeter as backin.

Convenient place for an overnight when traveling I-81. Most sites seem to have 30 amp only. They are really 2 backing sites end to end. It would have to be fairly empty to be able to pull thru. Pay internet is available through Xfinity at $7 per day. Verizon cell service is very strong so we used that. Mostly clear of trees so satellite works well. May have some power issues as the 5th wheel next to us was plugged into our outlet with a long extension. Since nomone was home, I moved his connection to his pedestal and used our marked outlet.

This is our second stay here and this year is better than last. We were able to get a site in a better section with a view of the lake. Great place to walk, one loop around the lake is one mile. Cafe on site with typical cafe food. Nothing special but a good value. Staff is friendly and helpful. WiFi covers the entire park very well and has decent speed. Many sites are not satellite friendly so be sure to tell them if you need it. Sites on north side of lake are older, paved, and heavily treed. Sites on south side are larger, fewer trees, and gravel. I prefer the south side. Some of the east end sites are very soggy in rain. The west side is like the north side. Lakeside sites on the south side have dual hookups so motorhomes can pull nose in to have a lake view, and trailers can back in. Good grocery stores are a little bit of a drive. Huge shopping center about 5 miles NE of the park. Park is next to I-295 so traffic noise can be heard sometimes.

Stayed here as part of a caravan. Park was overbooked so we had to double up in sites. They had double hookups so a class B and a class A could fit on one site. I was about 6" from the RV in front of me. Some other people with reservations were turned away. WiFi was useless. Laundry room was messy and had machines partially disassembled. As most of Alaska roads and site were dirt and gravel. Cable TV only showed one channel and was mostly unwatchable. My satellite would not work here. Some long term residents that were in poor condition and many were messy. Hookups worked fine.

Stayed here as part of a caravan. This is the best campground we stayed at in our 2 month tour. WiFi was ok. Satellite work on some channels. Good laundry. Sites are on grass, about ½ pull thru, the rest back-in. RV/car wash is right across the street. Park is on north end of town. Moderate walk to downtown. Car needed for other areas of town. Helpful staff. Sites were a bit close. They used shrubs as protection for the hookups so they were easier to see while backing.

Picked out this park while visiting the Edmonton area. It's about 20 minutes from the West Edmonton Mall. Beautifully landscaped. Sites are gravel with manicured grass between sites. All hookups worked well. Dish Network worked ok here on SD. WiFi was very good in both speed and coverage. Small, clean laundry with 4 W/D. Nice fenced dog area. Secure walkway to adjacent park - good if you have kids as the campground has no facilities for them. Friendly staff. Due to age of park no shade as the trees are small. No campfires allowed except for propane fireplaces - great for those with asthma that's affected by smoke.

Great views of a beautiful lake but little else. Sites are terraced on a steep hill leading down to the lake. They are close together. Big rigs can be tight on some sites. Power was a major problem. Electricity comes from their own diesel generator which was inadequate for the job. Voltage drops kept causing my power protection to cut off. I measured voltages as low as 100v. We had to run our own generator for AC during the day. No TV, cell service, or Internet. Price is an estimate as we were part of a prepaid caravan.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Park is right next to the interstate so it can be noisy at times. Gravel sites and roads. Wifi worked well. About 2/3 of the sites are satellite friendly. Clean, large laundry. Heated pool.

Good location if visiting the area or wanting an overnight spot. Price includes full hookups with 50amp power and wifi. Most sites had good satellite access. All sites are grass with gravel access roads. We were the only RV in our section. Too many speed bumps coming into the fairgrounds. Self registration process when arriving after 5 like we did.

Wonderful little church camp tucked into the Cascade foothills. While we were there nothing was going on so it was very quiet and peaceful. There was only one other RV there in addition to the camp host. Lots of trails for hiking, large green space. No store so take what you need. Full hookups. Some sites gravel, the rest are grass. Wifi worked well but wasn't super fast. Most sites good for satellite. If you want the feeling of being in a backwoods campsite with all the modern connections, this is the place. Narrow roads but no problem for big rigs.

This is an update to my review from last year. We stayed in the new expansion area this summer. This area is designed with big rigs in mind. Plenty of room to maneuver. Terraced views overlooking the bay. Easy walk down to the beach. Sites are reasonably wide with large grass area in front for a picnic table and fire ring. Pads are gravel, roads are paved. Sites have double hookups so motorhomes can pull in forward and trailers can backup in. No shade in this area. No bathrooms or showers so you have to be self contained. Excellent satellite and tv reception. Good Verizon cell signal. Wi-Fi has not been deployed to this area yet but it's possible to pick up a signal from sites to the visitors center office. Excellent water pressure. Dog park about two blocks away. When checking into this section it's best to park in the visitors center lot and walk across the road to the campground office. Otherwise you will have a lot of maneuvering to do to get back over to this site.

The first time I stayed at this gas station I didn't have slides so the narrow sites were not a problem. With slides, you have to be very careful how you position your rig. For the price it remains a OK spot to overnight if you need hookups. There is a cable TV hookup but it doesn't work. Wi-Fi available in Burger King but it doesn't win any speed awards. Station is in transition. The Burger King and Subway are still there and operating but the gas station and store was just sold in a foreclosure auction. Had to pay in the Burger King, cash only.

This site is typical for fairgrounds. Camping in a field with full hookups. We just overnighted here. Power and water were very good. Excellent TV and satellite reception. Wi-Fi available but it's not close by so a good antenna is needed. Very fast connection once connected. Somewhat tricky to pull into the fairgrounds as there are no signs to direct you. I had the map of the fairgrounds from the web site to help navigate. Pricing is a bit odd, $20 for a 30 amp hookup and $30 for a 50 amp. I thought the differential was a bit high. Self register and pay in a drop box. No envelopes or forms so I had to provide my own. Fair is in early to mid July so avoid it then.

We have stayed at the other Opry area campgrounds so decided to give this one a try. Very helpful staff; they were crowded due to construction taking out some sites and a large group. They drove me around to find a site I liked that could get satellite reception. 24 hour laundry was helpful when our dog got sick on a blanket. Roads were being repaved and were a bit rough due to the construction. Wi-Fi worked great.
