Just an overnight stay on our way home to Az, plenty of open sites with views of the lake. We have stayed here several times in the past and it is just a few miles off the main highway and quite convenient. Arriving mid day on a Sunday we noticed a lot of folks not packing up till 3, 4 or even 5pm. Guess they do not, or cannot enforce check out time. As long as there are plenty of nice sites available, I don't have a problem with that. We were surprised to find that we had an excellent wifi signal.

Date of Stay:

We called early morning and spoke to the host. He promised to hold a waterfront site for us, if one opened up (we figured we could be there in a couple of hours) We ended up in one of the newer premium sites with a great view of the beach and lake. Plenty of shade, slightly un level, but doable. The older section had much more of a mix of sites, more suited to families and big groups. Overall we were pleased with our location.

As others have stated, this is a wharf, a marina, with RV hookups. We enjoyed our stay, walked across the Aerial Lift bridge into town several times. The Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center is free and very interesting. We spent several hours there. Many good restaurants in town also. Watching the giant lake carriers come through the canal and under the bridge is really amazing. Parking in the electric sites can be tight, but we left early on a week day morning and got out just fine.

We enjoyed our overnight stop here next to the Mississippi River. Fun to watch various boats cruise by, also the white pelicans. Quite a mix of sites. Ours was fine, but some more un level and heavily treed. Nice walking path, about a mile, perfect for an after dinner or morning stroll. Would stay again if passing through this area.

We really enjoyed our stay here, well spaced out sites, some with shade. We had a lovely view of the bay and found it to be very quiet and peaceful. Self pay box with brochures and information about the area.

Date of Stay:

Lovely sites along the river below the Dam, flat, paved, 50amp electric. Water nearby to fill tank if needed (we didn't) The river was really high and we enjoyed watching folks Bow fishing, which we had never seen before. I would recommend this park.

We had some difficulty finding the place, even though it is not far off the main road. What is not apparent is that you drive down a narrow one lane road through the day use area, then enter the camping area and it is again one way, but if you want to drive around a second time to look at sites you have to go all the way back to the entrance of the park and start over again. Web site clearly says it is a "no reservation, first come first served park. However when we arrived mid afternoon 4 or 5 sites had red cones in them stating they were occupied. Campground Host was not present at the time so we chose a site that had some shade and a nice grassy sitting area under the trees, and fortunately had 50 amps, since it was really hot. Several hours later a 5th Wheel pulled up at one of the "coned" sites and a fellow moved it aside for them. It become apparent, hearing him talk to the Host, that he had saved 4 desirable sites for his buddies who were arriving later. Somehow that just soured us to the place, even though it is a lovely well taken care of park.

We decided to stay here based on reviews from your site, arrived middle of the day on a Friday, looked like about half of the sites were occupied by "long term" campers. Fortunately one was available that had some shade and we could face our RV windshield north and towards the river. (It was very hot, highs near 100F) Hookups are shared side by side, which I had not seen mentioned and could affect which way one's rig would face. we were only able to get a 30amp site, but it was ok.

A typical city park, just fine for an overnight stay. Only 30 amp electric and water at sites. Some big shade trees and nice walking paths. A few geese and ducks, not too annoying. We certainly would stop here again if passing through this area.

We stayed here overnight just prior to the 4th of July weekend. I had actually reserved a site months ago, and was told no deposit needed (cash or check only, no credit cards). On check-in we were greeted warmly by the couple who took over the place about a year ago. Our full hookup site was flat and the utilities worked well. Although it is mostly long term residents, everything is kept neat and clean. The laundry was clean also. Pool looked nice but we did not use it. I would definitely stay here again if passing through the area. Oh I forgot to ask for a Good Sam discount, but still feel we got a good value.

Date of Stay:

Very convenient for an overnight stay, on our way back home. Check-in was easy, our site completely level on a concrete pad and surrounded by well kept green grass and small trees. Utilities were well placed. The Wi-Fi was strong and more than adequate. I did a couple of loads of laundry, the place was spotless and inexpensive. Extremely quiet at night, we slept well and only heard an occasional train in the distance. We would definitely stay here again if passing through this area.

Date of Stay:

Nice state park, near Missouri river, easy access off our route. Only electric hookups at site, but several water faucets available for filling up, also at dump station. The host said they had some recent heavy rains and there was several areas of standing water throughout the park, therefor a lot of mosquitoes. Someone was spraying the park, so hopefully it got better. Small convenient laundry in bathhouse building.

Just an overnight stop for us and I called from San Antonio to make sure they had vacancies in the RV area. Lady who checked us in was very nice and let us pick our spot (from her computer screen) We had a nice site with trees on one side and a large field and trail on the other side. Enjoyed walking some of the trails by the river and a very peaceful stay despite being only a few miles off I-10. We would stay here again.

Location, location, location! We paid $76.50, including tax for a 2 night stay and thoroughly enjoyed our ocean front spot. Nice clean park, friendly and helpful workers, super quiet at night. Some traffic noise during the day, but not bad. We enjoyed watching the pelicans and other birds as well as the folks fishing from the pier. Everything worked well, including the Wi-Fi. We hated to leave and would definitely stay there again.

We have been staying at the Silver Dollar for many years, usually in the off season, while visiting family and friends in the area. The price is good compared to the few other parks in the area, but I must say the RV spots are getting more and more run down - broken slabs, weeds, broken tree branches and trash everywhere. On the plus side, the laundry is clean and priced right, nice safe areas for morning/evening walks and it is quiet (on the golf side) especially at night. Don't know if we will be there again, unless they clean the RV area up a bit.
