First....I guessed on the price, as I don't remember. OK, so this was a tough review to write. Huntington Beach is one of our favorite SC parks. The location and beach are perfect, but the infrastructure is starting to fail. While we were there, we were on two sites. The 30 amp receptacle on the 1st site started smoking and sparking when we plugged in, and had to be replaced by the ranger. Our next site was fine for a couple days, but then started cycling the power because of a loose neutral...again fixed by park staff. While we were on this site, the 30 amp pedestal on the site next to us actually caught on fire...causing damage to the occupants dogbone adapter...fortunately we got their rig unplugged in time. That was what we saw...but heard of other issues on other sites. So...a great location, beach and some very nice sites...but BEWARE THE PEDESTAL. On the plus side, they are going to begin construction on a new 50 amp loop on the south side of Atalyia in December of this year. Additionally, wifi has been expanded withn the campground and is now accessible from campsites. Without power problems, I would give this park an 8....but they need to spend some money on it.

With sewer, it would be a ten. This is a gem of a park, run by the Army COE. ALL 70 sites are waterfront. There is a boat launch and swimming beach. Most sites are generously sized and well kept, typical of a COE operation. Good 50 amp and water pressure. No cable or WiFi but good over the air TV reception. Some sites would work for sat TV and most would work if you had a tripod and some luck. Nice and quiet at night, but I bet it is noisy during football season being so close to Clemson. A little odd in that not every loop has a shower/bath house, so pick carefully if that is an issue for you. Also, there is only one dump station, and if you haul gray water that too could be an issue for you depending on what site you pick. If you can make that work for you, this is a great place. Very close to Clemson, Seneca, and Anderson, so plenty of grocery stores, restaurants etc. Lake Hartwell is a man made lake but has fairly clear water for a non-natural lake. In fact,it was surprisingly clear and clean. Many if not all of the sites would allow for a boat to be moored right at the site. Staff are friendly and keep the park very nice. One of my new favorites.

Overnight stop for me so I will review it as such. Although this is a little far off Rte 80 for an overnight stop, there aren't many options in this neck of the woods for an easy on/easy off overnight so this is the best bet here. About 6 miles off of I-80. Be certain to follow their big rig directions from their web site or their reservation confirmation. Apparently, failing to do so is not a good idea. I followed the big rig instructions and have no complaints. Roads are fine. A few curves, but no issues for a tall 35 foot RV. Park is undergoing lots of site work and renovations. The 50 amp pull through sites are all new with new services. Good power, water sewer, cable, and WiFi. In fact WiFi and cable are exceptional. Sites are gravel and bigger than the typical KOA site. The 50 amp pull throughs are up a bit of a hill. Fairly level side to side, but some have a bit of a challenge front to back. Pool looked nice and it looks like there are a fair number of seasonal campers in another area of the park. Nice camp store and check in folks. Works very well for me as an overnight with all the bennies. I give the new sites a 9 and the park an 8 overall.

This is a KOA and for me is an overnight and not a destination, and I will rate it as such. Having said that, it is very easy on and off I-81 and very close to the highway without a lot of road noise. Just outside the campground is a nice RV friendly name brand gas/diesel station with prices less than truck stops for diesel fuel and a big rig friendly pump. Campground is very hilly, but they have terraced their 50 amp pull thru sites sufficiently. They are doing some site work there, but our site still ended up with up being wheels in the air on one side. We have auto level so not a problem for me, but ask for a level site if you have to level the old fashioned way. Sites were close. Power, water, sewer and cable all good as was WiFi. Site had two options for sewer connect. Nice clean looking pool. Worked very well for me as an overnight.

Easy access to I 40 and well kept campground. Lots of seasonals, but clean and neat...no junk around. They do a booming overnight business, so reserve early. Free coffee and pastries bring in a big morning crowd in the very nice office/clubhouse. Sites big, level and good services. Very good cable TV. Most sites have a big concrete lip for drainage so go slow pulling in. Indoor pool and hot tub a bonus! Staff and manager are really great folks. We were broken down here for 4 nights and they couldn't have been nicer to us...even loaning us a floor jack to repair fifth wheel suspension. Limo comes through nightly for free transport to Big Texan steak house. This is the place to stay on I 40 in Amarillo. Thanks to all the staff for making our breakdown the best one yet!

Quick, easy access off of I-40. Very easy check in with friendly staff. Premium pull through site was long and level with good well placed services. Premium site had a lovely wooden glider swing seat and firewood stacked at the firepit ready to go...a touch that was unique and much appreciated. Seasonals a bit overgrown with weeds, but campground in good condition with upgrades in the works. On site cafe where you can eat in or they will deliver to your door. Nice overnight!

This is a nice, clean and quiet park. We have a gravel back in site that had much more room than some of the similar pull through sites. Great location and spotless park. Owners require adherence to the rules...good for them. Not the place to go if you have kids...we don't and it was perfect. All services including WIFI are top notch. We would definitely stay here again.

The good; Smooth and easy check in, good 50 amp, good water and sewer. That's about it. Good open sky for satellite and good over the air from Albuquerque. The further you get from the front of the park the worse it gets. The rate was balloon festival, so it was inflated over their normal rate. This is a run down parking lot of an RV park. We had a pull through with a dead tree and a row of abandoned vehicles across from us at the fence line with Camping World. Despite having made reservations well in advance for the balloon festival, we ended up in the section with a bunch of run down seasonal campers...one of which had flat tires and an abandoned truck with flat tires parked in front of it. Our picnic table was falling apart, but at least we had one. Many of the sites near us had none. We would not return. The other parks on the outskirts of town, like this, look much nicer from the road. This is a trailer park. They advertise Wi-Fi, but it is absolutely the worst Wi-Fi we have ever had.

This is a review of the resort side of things at this two in one park. We were on a huge back in site between a couple Casitas. Beautiful landscaping,and pool/hot tub across the street. Couldn't get a better concrete site. Power and water good, but cable a bit on the fuzzy side. If I was an owner, I wouldn't be happy as they seem to be missing it on some of the details of running a top notch place...dog park in owner section wet and gross from lack of runoff. No security at night. We had non-campground people cruising the campground to see if they could hook up with people taking jeeps into the desert. They have a snow fence between the ownership section and the regular campground...needs to be upgraded to a real fence. Pool needed cleaning....lots of dead bugs. Mostly detail stuff. I also noticed that they were not raking out the gravel in the non-ownership side between guests...something that would be done at a top notch place. All in all, this is where we would stay again if in the area, but they could really make it spectacular if they put in more detail work. I still give it a good solid 9.

We had a full hookup site in this secluded state park about 14 miles from Bryce NP. Most sites here have no hookups...about 4 full service sites. There is no TV, no radio and no telephone service as the campground is in a beautiful red rock canyon. Site services are all new and very good. Campground is spotless. Spectacular night skies from here as there is no light pollution. Definitely would stay here again.

Fairly nice overall and a good location for visiting Jackson WY without being overcharged for a campground. Very nice ride over the Teton pass and you are there. Good proximity to Teton National park. The regular pull through sites are Very close. Closer than KOA close. So close that you probably couldn't use your awning if you had a neighbor. I would not recommend those sites (although I had one and no neighbor, it was still too tight with septic hookups almost a tripping hazard out my door). The premier pull through sites are much better. Small pool. Nice mountain views. Some noisy neighbors if you are in the back area. We would definitely stay here again on a premium pull through, but not the regular pull through or back in sites. Very good Wi-Fi and power. No security at the gate.

This is a real nice park heavily landscaped and well kept. Grounds are immaculate. Sites are level and very nice with well kept grass and trees strategically placed. No gate security, but not an issue in West Yellowstone. Walking distance to town and very near to West entrance to Yellowstone. Office close at 5 pm , which is a bit early if you find yourself in need of something. Internet is strong but you are limited to 2 (2 hr. each) periods per day 10 hours apart and need a coupon code...which makes it frustrating when the office closes at 5 pm and you have been out all day. There is an option to purchase time from Tengonet if you need more time. Aside from that minor irritation, this is the place to stay if you want to be in town in West Yellowstone. Also, no wood campfires per town ordinance.

This is a first class, extremely well run park if you are looking for a beautiful natural setting with waterfront sites, mountain views and good size sites with solid services. Excellent Wi-Fi available throughout the park. If you want pools, hot tubs and kids activities....maybe not for you. But if you want a quiet great place in a beautiful setting about 10 minutes outside of the town of West Yellowstone...this is the place. About 4 TV channels available with fairly good signal strength. All sites good for Satellite. Premium waterfront sites are fantastic.

Easy check in. Very good 50 amp, water pressure, and WI-Fi. No problems with septic hookups. Very quiet this time of year, but some traffic in and out for one nighters. About 4 miles on the Billings side of Red Lodge, which is a really nice little town. Pool looked clean. Really needs some sprucing up. It is run down to the point we didn't even want to sit outside. Gravel and dead grass. Park is run by nice work-campers. Owners live on site, but must not be real interested, although there is some evidence of a few recent improvements. No views from lower campground area. Had to laugh at local publication touting the park being surrounded by mountains etc...don't expect scenic wonder here. I would not hesitate to overnight there again, but would perhaps consider another campground in the area.

A little on the shabby side once you get through the main gate....but it is THE location for Devils Tower. Rate is full hookup 50 amp. Sites long and level enough for us. Nice workcampers at check in. Water and power are good. There is no cable, no TV and no Verizon cell service. I did find a radio station. Some sites are clear for satellite. It was a one night stop for us to view the Devils Tower. There is nothing else here except a small gift shop/sandwich grill across the street. They do air "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" nightly on the deck. Nice touch. No campfires at sites, but a couple group areas. They were doing a brisk business.
