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.

Most of the sites have great views of Lake Superior. Sites are reasonably sized with easy access. Some are shady but most are in the open. Wi-Fi connection was good from our site but bandwidth was spotty. Excellent satellite and local TV reception. Easy access to a local trail/park for biking to downtown. Golf course across street. Two blocks down is a car wash with an RV bay. Campground is expanding into a new area with 34 new big rig sites with 50 amp hookups. That area should be complete by Fall 2013.

Campground was established to provide access to the Wild River ATV trail. It has 10 back-in RV sites and 5 tent sites. Sites are level gravel. Self service registration. Some shade, but satellite TV still worked fine. Decent TV reception for Duluth stations. All new hookups that work perfectly. Great place for an overnight or longer while exploring the area. The Jack Links Beef Jerky factory is in town and the local store serves as the outlet. Bought a 10 pound bag of jerky for $40. We stayed here twice, once northbound and again on our way south.

Reservation process for here was a problem. Due to taking courses at North House School we needed about 2 weeks. They only had space for some of the nights and said to call back to check on cancellations. Nothing came up, but we decided to stay for the first part anyway. The site we reserved did not have sewer hookup. When I checked in, I asked if a FHU site was available. She checked and found a waterfront site that was available and we could stay there two weeks. We did have to pay $4 more per night, but it was worth it. Our site had a gorgeous view of the harbor. Once in place our stay was wonderful. Sites are very large and fairly level. Utilities were good. Free Wi-Fi was hard to connect and very slow. A pay connection is available and we opted to pay for it. Much better speed. Campground is in easy walking distance to shops and restaurants. We were there July 4th and the fireworks were right in front of our site. Biking and walking trail goes right by the campground. Pool is indoors and is a community pool. Costs $4 per day. We would definitely stay here again.
