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.

This is a very quiet military base, The spots were somewhat close together, but it was never full both times we went there. The host is very friendly & helpful. One section has trees & the other is open. We stayed in the open section & had no trouble getting satellite, phone or internet, which was provided.

This has the potential to be a nice campground. When we arrived, the signs to the campground were poor and we ended up driving behind the restaurant. Not so good in a 40' motorhome towing a car. Register in the store at the gas station. It does seem to have a decent selection of things. The campground itself has trees, is off the street and space between the sites. HOWEVER, there are broken down junk vans and a bus parked around one side and the road to the campground itself has huge potholes you can't drive around. The map they pass out for the sites, gives the wrong direction into them, so get out and walk to your site before going down the campsite roads or you might find yourself at a dead end with trouble getting out. The park does not appear to be well cared for. They do offer Wi-Fi, but it was very slow and sometimes non existent. Some of the sites are pretty level, not sure about all. If you are assigned to site 1 or 2 check it out carefully as raw sewage was dumping there in July 2013.

There are pull through sites for the big rigs, which we have. There was only one other RV in the park the night we stayed. Our biggest complaint was that the trees in the pull throughs need trimming. We really scratched our RV. They need to put the map of the campground at the beginning, because we drove through the whole campground looking for a spot. Other than that, it was very quiet & it was a perfect spot to park for the night.

For the most part, this is just a huge parking lot. Many caravans stop here. It is all gravel; although, they do have some treed sites on an upper level. I think they only have water & electric or less up there. However, it is much quieter. The lower part is a block from the highway by a row of trees. My biggest complaint would be their electrical service. It was hot the first full day we were here & many were running their AC's. They only have 30 amp service, which is normally fine, but the service at the post kept dropping causing us to lose power. This also happened one night when trying to run the heat pump. They do have an RV wash and decent laundry facilities. They give you free Wi-Fi, but it is a limited amount. It was fine for our use, which was email, checking the stock market & reading some news. It's about 4 miles from downtown, but no problem to get there.

This park is only 5 years old and it really laid out well. It is great for big rigs. The road is wide and the sites are easy to back in. The sites themselves are heavily packed gravel, level and clean! We stayed in Dairy Creek West. Spots 1-14 are more shaded, and 30-36 get morning shade. Since it was Oct, we wanted as much sun as possible so we stayed in 51. We had great satellite, cell and our own Wi-Fi. Dairy creek East was more open. There were lots of hiking trails. This is sort of away from everything, but we drove Hillsboro and took the train to Portland for the day. It was very inexpensive! The hosts were very friendly and kept the place spotless. We would definitely come back here again.

This was a very nice park. It's a bit awkward to access, especially from the east. You have to go past it, get off at the next exit & go back. It is right off the Interstate & thru the rest stop. The sites that are near the Interstate are very noisy A1 -16, & probably B 48,50 & 55. However, you could probably get satellite from one of those spot. We couldn't get it from the B19, but did move later to B43 & did get it there. We couldn't get anything on antenna. The park host was really nice & get everything very clean. There is a train that runs along the gorge, but you got used to it & it didn't blow it's whistle. The views of the gorge are very nice. It was a good spot to sight see Mt.Hood, & the areas along the gorge. The biggest negative would be that you can only go E from there, so you have to drive about 3 miles out of your way to go west or coming from the East. We were able to get cell service & our own wifi. I would definitely return here if I were in the area.
