This is a very large park on the Ross Barnett Reservoir, very close to the Natchez Trace. Get directions & don't follow your GPS! Host at check in is so nice & helped us when we got lost. There are a lot of seasonal campers here, but we didn't have a reservation & had no trouble getting a spot. We aren't in the newest area, but it's somewhat new. This area has concrete pads & the sites are very spacious. We aren't on the water, but they do have some sites that are. Our only complaint would be the roads in the campground. They're quite hard to maneuver & we actually ended up in a ditch trying to turn on our street. I thought we were going to have to be towed out, but some wonderful campers helped my husband get out of it. So BE VERY CAREFUL & get out of your vehicle & check the turn before you make it. Otherwise, this place is great!

This place was packed on Sat & Sunday night. All but a couple of tent sites are pull thrus. There were a couple of issues. First, the pads were so covered in pine needles & leaves that you couldn't see some of the sites. A lot of them are very long & in a number of them there were tenters. If they had moved their cars off the pads, an RV could have easily used that pad without disturbing the tenter. We offered the use of the back end of our pad to another RVer, but they were towing & weren't able to back up to get out without disconnecting their car. There was no map or camp host available here, so people had to drive around several times to figure out the sites. Of course, big pine trees right next to the pads make it difficult to maneuver larger RVs. It was very nice otherwise & you can't beat "free". We were parked on the site behind the restroom & were able to get our satellite by pulling forward quite a bit.

This is a free campground on the Natchez Trace. We were quite surprised at the amount of campers this time of year. There are a lot of pull thrus, which is great if you're traveling the Trace & need a place to stop. My biggest complaint would be that the pull thrus have somewhat large curves to them & there are a lot of pine trees right next to the pads. It's difficult if you're pulling a toad. We did find a spot for our 40' & toad, just had to maneuver a little. No hookups of any kind but, You can't beat the price.

Our site was on the end & quite large. We were in the new section overlooking the bay & our view was beautiful, especially the sunsets. This is all grass & not at all level, so if you go, make sure you've got plenty of things to level your camper. There are no trees, and it was very windy while we were here. We were here mostly during the week & there was no one around, so it was very quiet. We don't have a boat or anything, so we just enjoyed the view. They could use a trash can here. We did not have any problem with our sewer hookup. We would go back again if in the area. You can't beat the price for full hookups. I am rating our site a 5 for the view, but again it was very unlevel!

This is a very small campground, but it has spacious sites. It is not on the water, but only about 10 min to Two Harbors & Lake Superior. All the sites are pull-throughs. Ours was somewhat level, but we did need our jack pads & jacks. The owners were very nice and gave us some suggestions about things in town. There are only a couple sites with sewer hookups, but they do offer honey wagon service, which I think is free, but I don't know if there is a limit.

This is a large and very nice campground right on the Chippewa flowage. It is very well kept and the sites where we stayed were spacious. #449. We also got satellite on this spot but not #448. There is plenty there for kids, although we didn't have any with us. Our biggest problem was that the site is grass and it had stormed the day we got there. We had huge ruts in the grass from backing in and there was a puddle outside our door every time it rained. It's about 25 minutes into the town of Hayward, but the office had a small store, plus they sold ice cream cones and other snack foods. There is a restaurant across the street and several within about 20 minutes. We'd definitely return.

Other than the narrow road in, it's a quick 3 miles or so from the interstate. The owners & workers here are all very friendly & helpful. My biggest complaint would be that everything is gravel, so things get dusty. They do have some new long pull thru sites, which are great for RVs towing. They're working hard to make many of the sites longer & level. The wifi is ok, but it kicks you out about every 15 min. We were there for a month, which covered 2 weekends of Halloween activities. There were a lot of kids & they seemed to have a great time. The park was close enough to the town for shopping & restaurants. It's also close to Toyota, if you'd like to take a very interesting tour. And good access if you want to take the Bourbon tours. There aren't many FHU parks in the Lexington area & I'd say this is the best of them. We had good phone service & satellite.

We stayed here at the end of the season, so it was kind of quiet. We did not have a lake site, but did go over there to check it out. This is a very nice, well cared for park. The front & lake sites are wooded, the newer area is open with young trees. The spots were decent sizes. The wifi was good, but the park was not crowded. We had good cell service- Verizon. The location of this park was good for sightseeing in Traverse City, Sleeping Bear Dunes, Charlevoix, Petowsky. They had a large laundry room with plenty of washers & dryers & reasonably priced. We would definitely return if in the area.

We stayed in the campground at the end of the season. They were still quite busy on the weekend. The sites seem to vary in width. Ours was narrow & backed right up to another spot. We did not use any of the amenities there, but they had a large swimming beach that looked very nice. There is a lot of grass along the lake front if you just want to relax & enjoy the view. The location is great if you want to go to Mackinac Island or Mackinac City. You can also cross the bridge & go to some of the places in the upper peninsula. We had good phone service & the internet was also pretty good, but again, the park was not full. We also took a day trip to Charlevoix & Petowsky from there.

We went at the end of the season so we weren't able to use any of the lake facilities. We parked on the grass on # 3. It was fairly level, but would suggest you have blocks for your jacks. We were able to get satellite from that spot but not #1. We also had good internet, but the park was pretty empty. We also had pretty good cell service - Verizon. The park seems old but it looks like they're trying to make improvements. The location is good. You can get just about anywhere on the upper peninsula within about an hour and a half. It looked like they had a small beach area & maybe a swimming hole. The laundry room was old, but the machines worked, were reasonably priced & it was clean. We would return if in the area.

The owner & staff have been very nice from my first phone call to check in, to various other questions. It's after Labor Day so it is pretty empty here. They have a nice pool & playground. No much in the way of trees, but very quiet. It's not on the busy side of the Peninsula, but it's quick to get there (about 15 min). The campground could use a little TLC, a fair amount of weeds, but the price was right, it's clean & quiet. The sites aren't huge, but you have plenty of room & there's lots of grass. Most of the sites are gravel & fairly level, but I would definitely bring pads for under the jacks. There is also some grass parking. I looked in the laundry room. It was clean, it had maybe 5 or 6 washers & dryers & the prices were reasonable. Used the restroom once, it was very clean. Overall the wifi has been good. There have been a few slow times, but better than a lot of places we've been. I'd come back if we were in the area.

We've been here for two weeks, are full time RVers & have been in many RV parks. Yes, they have a lot of signs saying clean up after your dog & keep them off the grass, but we've seen too many times that bad dog parents don't clean up. They have 2 dog parks, one is very large & you can certainly walk your dog around the park. Right now, they're repainting tables, swings, etc & doing an overall spring cleanup of the park. There are lots of flowers & you can tell they really want it to look nice. The park is very clean. We don't use the park showers, but I've used the restroom & everything was clean & nice. The laundry room is clean, large & the prices are good. The park prices are reasonable, ours is based on a monthly rate, & it's close to everything you need. We have found everyone who works here to be friendly & helpful. Some of the sites seem to be a little tight, but they do have some large ones. The pads are concrete & level. There are some large trees around the park, but I wouldn't call it wooded. Some sites have a little shade. They have free wifi & it is usually quite good. We don't download movies or anything, but for everyday use, we've been happy. This is a nice park & we will return.

This is the first time we've state in an Arkansas State Park & we've been very impressed. We're in the A loop, site 6 & do have satellite connection. Our mifi doesn't get a real strong connection but we can use it. Our site is concrete,level, has full hookups & is very spacious. We can see the lake thru the trees when we're outside. It's very quiet here during the week (so far). They have a swimming beach & a marina. This past Sunday they offered a free boat trip on the lake & the Park Ranger gave us information about the area. We haven't used the rest rooms, so can't comment on that. I do know they have a safe room in a couple of the rest rooms because we were during a heavy thunderstorm & I asked where to go in case of emergency. We would definitely recommend this park.

This is really a nice spot with grass & plenty of trees, no satellite TV, but got phone & private (Verizon) Wi-Fi. There are places to sight see from here, we drove to Hell's Canyon look out & there is a tram to the top of the mountain right around the corner. The lake looked nice, but it was the end of the season & they were bringing in all the boats. There are a lot of deer in the park, that are not afraid of the people. I saw people feeding them, which I wouldn't recommend, but they also would come up next to your RV & sit there for a long time. It is a well kept park & I would definitely return.

What a nice, well kept quiet park. The spots that back to the highway probably weren't that quiet, but there are plenty away from the highway. There are trees & lots of nice grass. This is a great spot if you want to visit the fossil beds,& painted hills. There is a day park next to it, if you want to have running room for your kids in the daytime. We would definitely go back if in the area.
