Sites are level, but just grass. Sites are fairly close together, although with enough room to get your slides out. Has a nice meeting room for groups, but no stove, sink, or refrigerator. Nice fenced-in dog exercise area. Bathrooms were new, clean, spacious, and needed a security code to get into. That's the fairly good news. The really, really bad news is the entrance and exit roads to the gambling casino next door RUN RIGHT THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE CAMPGROUND. Simply amazing. And a bit dangerous. And very noisy, especially in the middle of the night as the gamblers come and go. Never again will I visit this campground, which is something I have never written about a campground before.

Most sites are fairly level, some might require a bit of leveling. Bathroom very clean. Sites are reasonably close to one another, even though the park itself is quite large. Several nice hiking trails.

We decided to stay at the no-hookups area of the park, because there you are right on the shore of the Tennessee River, in the woods, with a lovely view. There are a couple of nearby water spigots, but no electricity and just a small bathroom with a flush toilet but no shower. Since we were the only campers there, we could let our dog run loose, which was nice. About 1 mile from this campground is a water/electric campground (which costs a bit more, but still reasonable) and there you have showers in the nice, clean bathroom. But that campground is situated in the woods, with no view. That campground was about half full when we were there. Miles and miles of nice hiking trails at this state park, and also a very nice small museum. The staff at the check-in office and the museum were VERY friendly, and even let us bring our dog inside both places, and gave us bottled water because they could see we were thirsty after our hike and hadn't carried water with us.

Beautiful views of the Tennessee Tombigbee Waterway area, which forms a large lake in the immediate vicinity of the campground. You can see the occasional barge go by, and there were a LOT of boaters/fishermen on the lake in addition. Sites were fairly close together, but the view made up for it. Most sites are fairly level.

This is the newest state park in Arkansas and it is wonderful. Sites are all level, full hookup. Bathroom facilities consist of 4 lockable rooms, each with a toilet, sink, and shower. Very nice. Sites are well spaced, and every one has a view of the small lake. There is a nearby swimming beach area, in addition to a boat launch ramp. There is a nice hiking trail across the road from the campground, with signs identifying the various species of trees found in the forest, some of which are fairly old.

Park is a large, level grassy field on the west side of Highway 25, about 3 miles south of Lakin. There are 8 sites, nicely spaced from each other, and the campground is quite a ways from the highway so it was quiet. We were the only ones camping, which made it great for letting our dog run off-leash (the signs say all dogs on leash, but we figured "what the heck" since we were the only ones there) but we did always pick up after him. Each site has water and electric. Bathroom is dated but adequate. There was a shower in the bathroom, but it was inoperable. This part of Kansas can be pretty windy, and we had a 20 mph wind pretty much all the time and some somewhat scary gusts of about 40 mph during the night which really rocked our RV. Still, for a nice quiet, level campground it was a real bargain at only $10 a night, honor system. Groceries and fuel available in Lakin. I'd easily stay there again.

Gorgeous views from almost all sites, which sit high on the hillside overlooking Colorado Springs. Full hookup at each site, level concrete pads, and nice spacing between the sites. Park has many hiking trails. Bathrooms are super clean, but showers are coin-operated. Note that you are required to purchase a "daily entrance fee" for $7 in addition to the $26 camping fee. We only stayed one night but would have liked to have stayed longer. They didn't seem to check the "daily entrance fee" tag we were required to display on the windshield, so it may be possible that you could skip purchasing a new "entrance fee" tag daily if you left your rig and/or vehicle sitting on the site.

Rate reflects half price for senior citizen. Pay at an automated machine, which is easy to operate and which is inside a building. But it takes cash only. Most sites are water and electric, fairly well-spaced, and most are level. Some are pretty close to the road, but traffic is light (almost non-existent) at night. We were there for the weekend and almost all the water/electric sites were occupied. Many of the non-hookup sites were available. Nestled in an attractive gorge at the base of a mountain with a pretty little stream next to the campground, and there is a hiking trail (about a mile) which goes up and over to "bathhouse row" on the other side of the mountain.

Campground is a level, crushed stone lot, with the sites somewhat close to each other, but sufficient room to get slides out. Each site has water and electric, and some sites also have sewage. You can see the Capulin volcano from the lot, and it is only about a 3 mile drive to the entrance to the road that goes up the volcano. Restrooms are a bit dated, but clean and adequate. Showers took a while to heat up, but were sufficiently warm once they had.

Sites are well-spaced, with water and electric and a level concrete pad. Some sites were nestled in trees, others were out in the open. All had a lovely view of the lake. Nice clean restrooms.

Situated quite close to Route 71 makes this a good campground while traveling north or south. And fortunately the campground is fairly quiet, because it is located in a hollow, so you hear little of the steady noise out on Route 71. Sites are also level and have good spacing. There is also a very nice club room available, complete with stove, sink, microwave, and refrigerator, plus the campground offers a discount for club rallies. And for walking your dog, there is a huge field next to the campground, complete with doggy litter bag dispenser. But I have downgraded due to the lack of any toilet or shower facilities whatsoever.

Stayed in Hackberry campground, which was only about 1/4 full, so lots of privacy. But there were also lots of flies, which was annoying. Not sure what was causing that. Note also that it's kind of pricey for only a water and electric hookup. They charge $24 a night for the campsite, plus another $5/person and a per night "entrance fee", even if you only enter the campground once and stay a couple of nights like my wife and I did. Hence the $34 per night fee that I listed. So I have rated Palo Duro a couple of stars lower, due to the flies and the high price.

I agree with the previous reviewer - as a CAMPSITE I would say it is just so-so. Some sites are level, some are not. Electric hookup only, and while the sites aren't terribly close to one another, neither are they as spaced as you will find in many BLM or NFS campgrounds. But as a PARK, Zion is certainly hard to beat, and the free shuttle (a 5-minute walk from our campsite) makes it very easy to reach the various hiking trails and scenic vistas in the park. If you enter or leave the park from the east, you will also encounter a $15 tunnel access fee, which covers 2 trips through the tunnel. And there is also a park entrance fee unless you have one of the various national park service passes.

Rate reflects a senior discount and some sort of promotional rate they were offering, apparently due to it being late in the season. We stayed at the camping area (can't remember the name) which is about 1 mile north of the Visitor Center, not the area south of the Center. The area we stayed in has newer, more level sites, along with full hookups, and is woods views only, while the other area has limited hookups but does offer nice views of the lake from some of the sites. Sites are situated somewhat oddly, with many sites immediately side-by-side with another site. Nice if you are camping with another RV couple, I suppose, but otherwise you will have one close neighbor, with the other RVs spaced more normally from you. The campground was less than half filled when we were there, so everyone had positioned their rigs in those odd "double" sites with nobody in the site immediately next to them. The campground is distant from the road and so it was very quiet, and $12 was very fair for a full hookup!

Date of Stay:

Distant views of the lake. Most sites are reasonably level and spacious. Very sturdy stone shelter at each site, with a large cement picnic table underneath. About a 7 mile drive north of I-40, but your reward is a quiet campground at the very fair rate of only $14 for a level water and electric hookup.
