This is a city park with lots of overgrown vegetation & narrow roadways. They did not provide a park map, which was odd as we mentioned a couple of times that we had never been there before. Electric on site 9 was very fluctuating. The rate included a $5 charge for making an online reservation. Sites are heavy sand with some space & vegetation between them, and the roads are paved. Sewer hookup is odd in that it is horizontal to the ground and not straight up. We got many over the air TV stations. Bathrooms were dated, but OK. It is a long walk to the beach so get directions before you set up camp as we did not see any signs & were not provided a map.

This park used to be a KOA & is next to the interstate. The electric seemed OK, but the water was full of brown sediment, so be sure to use a filter. The sites are not properly graded so getting level is a challenge, but we asked to move to a site farther from the interstate and we were allowed to do so. Caps were missing from the sewer lines. The location near Greensboro was good for us and the park filled up each night, but this park really needs some extra TLC. There is no cable and the WIFI was out for part of our visit. Several stalls in the ladies room were permanently locked. There are several very long pull-throughs. The price is not a good value for what is offered.

This park is an easy on and off from I95. Rate was 50 amp including cable. It's good for an overnight stay, but that would be it. Sites are long and level enough to not have to unhook, but mostly sand and grass. The WIFI was iffy. Bathrooms were older but OK. Pool was dated & closed early evening and the Jacuzzi was dry. It was very buggy here. We would stay overnight again.

A well-maintained & lovely park, not too far off the interstate. We stayed at the very top level and the views were exceptional. It is a steep drive to the top, but it is escorted and very doable in low gear, even for big rigs. Lower levels have lots of shade but no shade at the top. If you camp at the top level, you may need to drive down to the restrooms & showers, which are sparkling clean. The WIFI worked OK, but no uploading or down loading allowed. Cable, you get a remote from the office & hook up your cable line. The remote works the box, which is outside, but both our TV's had to be on the same station. We loved the top level and got the deck site, with a wood deck, big swing and metal patio set. It was expensive (our rate was Good Sam), but a very special few days.

Small, super nice, family-run campground at the southern most point of Pigeon Forge & at the edge of the parkway to Gatlinburg. It sits on a hill above another very crowded & busy campground, and above the parkway. The sites and road are paved. Sites are lovely with tall trees, a cement patio, nice picnic table and good hookups. WIFI is very spotty. Bathrooms & laundry room are modern and super clean. ($2/wash & $2/dry) There are lots of small cabins here if you want family to join you in the campground. Pool is clean and well-maintained. The location is excellent to go to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg or the National Park. We kept extending a day and they worked hard to make that possible. It would be a 10 if the WIFI was reliable. We loved it here!

Our rate was with the Senior National Park pass. The sites on this lakefront park have a paved area for your unit with water and electric (we had 50 amp) hook-ups only. There are a limited number of water-front sites. Interior roads are paved and each site has a concrete picnic table. Our firepit was filled with trash, as were some of the other vacant sites. Single washer/dryer laundry area was unappealing. You drive through an extended residential area to get to the park. Most sites are narrow back-ins so be careful as the pavement is well above the surrounding ground area. It was a good deal for the area.

Regular rate is $20/nite, holidays are $30/nite for 50 amp electric only at the site. If you make a reservation through the website for a holiday, they will require a 3 night stay but you can just drive in and have a shorter stay. It was not full for the July 4th weekend. The campground is basically 2 large grassy, paved, loops with plenty of space between each site. The sites are large and gravel. There are lots of big well-trimmed trees so your line of sight extends throughout the campground. It was beautiful and quiet here. Bathrooms were cleaned daily, but in need of an upgrade. Camp hosts were helpful and pleasant. There was substantial flooding in the park from the Ohio River, but it did not affect the campground or the roadways in/out. The Fort is closed due to the 2011 flooding issue. We loved it here.

This is a great RV park for access to downtown St Louis via the metro. There is a lot of city noise next to the park: trains, metro, highways, planes. You can see the arch from the RV park. Park has good hookups, level sites, paved roads and sites. They have free WIFI that works sometimes. Cable was a DirectTV feed and went out when it rained. Clean small laundry but $3 wash/ $3 dry! RV office & small store close at 4pm, which is a first for us, but there is a self check-in procedure. Security drives through campground regularly. Big-rig sites have no greenery, but smaller sites on north have trees between most sites. Our rate was Good Sam and was the most we have paid in weeks of traveling.

This campground is very convenient to visiting any of the President Truman area sights such as the museum-library and family home, plus a number of other interesting places in traditional Independence. The electric and water hookups were good. The back-in site we had was good concrete with a nice picnic table. Restrooms were older but clean, as was the laundry area (wash $1.00/dry $1.00). Free Wifi worked fairly well. The train noise was very noticeable but otherwise the campground was quiet. Follow the website directions as GPS will have you making impossible turns for any RV.

This is a newly opened RV park that is perfect for a stop-off near interstate I-40 or for visiting nearby Abilene. Free WiFi was the best we have seen in weeks of traveling. Super clean brand new restrooms/showers. Electric, sewer & water hook-ups were brand new. Although the water connection was at knee level, we had to kneel down to turn the water lever on underneath an in-ground cover. Nicely landscaped with new sod, brand new picnic tables and young trees planted at each site. It is very near the exit ramp from the interstate and on busy highway so vehicle noise levels are very noticeable. I would recommend the upper level so you are in a little quieter site. Camp hosts are super friendly & helpful and seem to know the area well. There is a playground for the kids. There are a few pull-throughs. We liked it here and would stay again.

There are lots of level sites in the grass with 50 amp, water and sewer. There are a few handicap sites with a concrete pad. Roads are paved and sites are right next to each other, but only an occasional picnic table. No shade is available. Restrooms are typical fair type, but are not cleaned regularly. Some windows in the men's room were left open and birds and bugs have taken over inside, which is very yucky. (Birds may be going in for the toilet water source) We had to call maintenance to request they clean the restrooms, but the "cleaning" left a lot to be desired. Great price to park to see the local sites, especially if you don't have to use the restrooms. Very few people were here, but call the number to be sure an event is not scheduled that would take up all the sites.

We loved this park which has plenty of spots for big rigs and lots of amenities. There is an escort to your site, which we always appreciate. Each spot has some type of shade tree and a picnic table. Hookups were great. Cable worked perfectly and so did the WIFI (which is very rare!). Sites are long enough to stay hooked up. Pool is heated and the laundry ($1.25 wash/$.25 dry) was neat and clean. Restrooms and showers were clean. Pool was heated. Nice little store at check-in with a small trade library. We were in the back and didn't hear much road noise. A train does pass once in the morning and once later evening but that did not bother us. Check out the metal art sculptures throughout the park. If roads were paved it would be a solid 10. We would stay again for sure.

This park is very run down, but functional for one night. We were grateful to pull through and not have to unhook our truck from our trailer (58' total). The dirt road has major potholes & every picnic table needs a serious paint job, but our dirt site was pretty level. Restrooms were dated, buggy & smelled like mildew. The cable worked well but we did not hook up the water as hookup was deep into a hole in the ground. There are lots of permanent workers, but there did not seem to be a problem with anyone. We pulled in, hooked up electric & cable, and stayed inside until we left the next morning. WIFI would not work at our site. Campground is next to a giant windmill factory and downwind of a lot of cattle. Office worker was very pleasant, but wind gusts, not so much.

Price includes daily entrance fee of $7 which must be paid every day unless you have a Colorado Parks pass. We liked our space, #85. In loop D you have a nice view of the mountains, and some view into the valley, but no view of the lakes. Our space was a handicap space and a big size fully concrete near the bathrooms. All the sites in our loop were pull-through and paved for the unit. Water was available to fill up here and there, but no water at the sites. 50 amp electric was good, bathrooms and showers (available for pay) were older but clean. We got a few over-the-air TV stations. It was quiet, we liked it here and would stay again.

Price is with the KOA card. This campground has a very odd layout with many KOA cabins. It's good to have an escort, but they move pretty quick so watch your unit on the way to your site. Lots of big boulders for landscaping can cause problems. It is on a mountain top so we didn't have the same standing water issues as many area campgrounds. They are 7 miles outside of Durango. Water, sewer, electric were good. We could not use the cable as you had to use a box from the office and hook it to the back of our TV, but we cannot access the back of our TV. Wifi was unusable. We did get major network TV over the air. They have some very nice patio sites for a bigger price which have outdoor table & chairs, concrete patio, some have big wooden swings. Bathrooms and laundry areas were clean. You can hear the highway. We enjoyed out stay here and would rate it higher with better wifi and paved roads and sites.
