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.

This park isn't much to look at but makes a great overnight stay. Price is reasonable for full hookups with good Wi-Fi. Getting in is a little tough due to the road condition - potholes and rough pavement. Most transient sites are pull-through. Some long term stays in back-in sites. Owner very friendly. Didn't see him until next morning as we checked in with a waitress at the cafe. Convenient to shopping with grocery and Walmart nearby. No bathrooms or showers so self contained RVs only.

We stopped here to wait out a storm that was passing through. Very friendly staff. Roads and sites were all smooth concrete. Only had to put down my levelers to stop rocking in the wind. No cable but over the air tv reception was very good. Few trees to block satellite. Wi-Fi was the best connection we have seen in two months. Not much around the area but it's an easy drive into Texarkana. Fishing lake on the property and a nice tree covered park area. Great place to walk the dogs.

This campground is only for students attending courses at the folk school. All RV sites are back-in on the outside of a loop. Tent sites are set in the woods on the entry road. School catalog says 34' is maximum but anything up to 36' will fit. Sites are mostly level but a couple could be a challenge. We picked a site that gave us satellite reception but most are too wooded for satellite. No TV reception. Wi-Fi is available in the office but not at the campsites. There is a lit walkway between the campground and the school facilities. Pets are not allowed at the school, including the campground.

I would have given this campground a 9 or 10 if they had water and sewer hookups. A nice county park campground very close to downtown Madison. Very roomy spaces. Trees provide a little shade. Tent area is very shady. Excellent satellite and local TV reception. Wi-Fi was good most of the time. Water fill and dump station easy to access. Bike trail runs right by the campground and it's an easy 5 mile ride to downtown Madison. Free air compressor at the building (95 psi max) for filling bike or car tires. Mosquitoes can be a problem so be sure you have repellant.
