Located along the Alabama River, this COE campground is worth going out of the way for. Sites 1 - 75 were all developed in the last four years and are beautifully done. Access roads are blacktopped. Lots of space between sites which are a mix of pull thru and back-in. All sites have concrete pads with gravel patios that include a fire pit, picnic table, and a standing barbeque grill. 50A electric power was solid at 121v. Be aware that water pressure was high and I capped it at 55psi with my regulator. The sites also have sewer but we didn't use. There was a bathroom facility conveniently located which we didn't take advantage of but was clean. This was just an overnight stop for us but we would definitely come back again and stay longer next time.

Easy access campground from I65 that was perfect for an overnight stop. This is a former KOA campground with gravel roads and site pads. Our pull thru site was reasonably level, sloping slightly down from front to back, and clean. 50A power was stable around 118v. Water pressure was decent at around 45psi. We were warmly greeted and the check-in process was smooth. Aesthetically the park is rather plain but it served our purpose and we would stop again.

Staying in the 300 section is like camping in a field but with water, electric and sewer all of which functioned well. There are very few trees in that area which is great for satellite users. Access roads are mainly gravel / ground asphalt. The interior sites throughout the park are predominantly pull-thru with site pads mainly grass. Most every site has a picnic table. Some have campfire rings. The sites are reasonably level and the grass was in fairly decent shape. Wi-Fi always took a while to connect to and was ok once connected but I reverted to our hotspot after getting logged off in a few hours. Exiting from the 300 section was confusing and we ended up pulling thru the site across from us to find our way to an access road. The recreation areas (basketball, volleyball, tennis courts, putt-putt golf) are looking tired and not really inviting. Overall, the campground was clean and in reasonable shape. We would come back again.

Camp Eriez is a fishing village, but don't let that fool you. There are 15 pull thru sites dedicated to the overnight stays. All the access roads are black topped and the site pads are around 55' long, level, and gravel. The patio is grass. Site width is about 35' with a full grown maple tree planted mid-site for shade. Each site has a campfire ring and all the picnic tables were in great shape. The 50a power was stable, water pressure was around 45psi, there is no sewer at the site however the dump station is conveniently located. Our hotspot got a decent signal for internet purposes. Being the end of summer, some of the grass in the patio area was beaten up. We arrived after a rain storm and the sandy soil had absorbed all standing water. The campground and surrounding seasonal village is well kept and maintained. While some of the seasonal fisherman have their collection of gear, the place had a purposeful, lived in feel but was not junky. The swimming pool had just closed for the season and will undergo renovations for next year. They have a little viewing area overlooking Lake Erie equipped with benches for watching sunsets. We were pleasantly surprised with this campground and would definitely come back again.

This casino run campground is beautifully landscaped with sites organized into little village groupings. Site width is very generous and the pull-thrus are long enough to accommodate both the truck and 39' rig comfortably. The access roads are blacktop and wide enough to handle back-ins easily. The pads are blacktop also but it would have been nice to have a hard surfaced patio because the grass along our pad was a little thin with dirt exposed - I'm thinking muddy if it had rained. Water pressure was excellent. The 50amp power handled both A/C's running to keep up with a 90 degree day. Each site has its own garbage can. Cable TV was free with an excellent selection of channels. There are ponds with catch and release fishing and walking trails throughout the grounds. The park is neat, well kept and fun to bicycle around. The pool was clean and refreshingly welcome as we used it to beat the heat. While there are a lot of trees on the grounds, section 300 was a bit wide open to the sun and the rig took the brunt of it during the afternoon. We really enjoyed staying in this campground and will be back again.

This rustic, hilly campground is nestled in the woods along Chamberlain pond. The access roads and site pads/patios are gravel. The first 10 sites have water, 30a electric and a gray water only dump port. There is a dump station. These same sites will accommodate bigger rigs more easily as the road is a little wider. The rest of the sites are W/E only and scattered among the seasonals. Most sites are reasonably level but remember this campground is built into the hills so you will need to compensate. The length and width of every site varies somewhat but you had a feeling of privacy in the trees. We had to jockey our 39' rig into a position so the slides avoided trees. Even still, our site's campfire pit ended up under a slide so we didn't have any fires. Tree trimming is needed as the rig scraped against branches when backing into place. Water pressure was 40 - 45psi. 30amp power was stable. In spite of 80 degree temps, we never ran the A/C because the dense tree shade kept the rig much cooler. Cable TV was good and available for $5 a night. There's no wi-fi but our hotspot worked fine. The grounds were clean and maintained. The office/rec room building is fairly new and sports a store, library, game room. Behind it is a large blacktopped pad for listening to music, playing basketball, etc. The 50 acre pond has a variety of fish, no license needed and it's catch and release. We met a number of the seasonals and found them welcoming and engaging. The staff was friendly and very helpful with information about the area. The nightly rate for the Labor Day holiday is bumped to $60. Considering no 50a service, no site dump, no wi-fi, extra $ for cable, site accommodation issues for big rigs, their regular $40 rate is more appropriate for a holiday weekend and still high compared to other campgrounds where a similar daily rate includes all the amenities. We liked the rustic qualities of this campground but would look for other places next time.

This is a good sized campground with a huge variety of sites. We stayed in a 60' pull thru that was slightly up-hill with a bit of a drop-off at the rear. We pulled the rig to the front of the site and parked the truck in the rear. The other pull thru's around us were landscaped similarly. The access roads and pads are gravel. Expect things to get a bit dusty with traffic thru the park. Site width is ok although the campfire ring in the site next to us was placed way too close to our rig for our comfort if someone had decided to use it while we were there. The campground is largely wide-open which is great for those with satellite. There are young plantings at every site which will provide shade a few years down the road. Water pressure was very good and the 50amp power was stable as we ran both A/C when temps soared into the upper 80's. Cable TV service was very good. Wi-fi was ok but intermittent. I had to use our hotspot periodically to maintain a useable service. Their recreation park is first rate. They have every imaginable game (horseshoes, bocce, ladder golf, shuffleboard, volleyball etc.) available with all the parts and pieces right there ready to use. The pool and hot tub were immaculately clean and well maintained. The office staff were attentive and provided helpful information about the area. We enjoyed our stay and would come back again.

Located next to the old Prospect Mountain ski area, this campground has a great mix of wide open spaces and smaller rig camping tucked into the trees and hills. Several nice ponds are located on the grounds and a river walk thru a meadow is a nice touch. Our pull thru site was long and level with reasonable spacing. Water pressure was very good and the 50a electric stable. Our site did not have sewer but there is an easily accessible dump station. Wi-Fi was decent. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Work was actively being done to upgrade the septic system. The lodge was undergoing some renovation and operates as a hostel also. We will definitely come back again.

This is a nice campground located along the northern Finger Lakes canal system. The pull thru site we were assigned was a long and reasonably level gravel pad. The pull thru sites are alternated so your door side faces your neighbor's door side. They did not have sewer but water pressure was good and electric was stable. The grounds around the camping area are park-like, fun to explore and you can swim off the dock along the canal. We would stay here again.

Easy overnight place to stop while traveling East on the Turnpike. It's nothing more than a blacktopped parking lot but it does have 50a power which worked fine. The parking lanes are just long enough to handle a 40' rig but you will have to disconnect your tow/towed. There is plenty of room to park a vehicle alongside. There is a dump station if needed. The potable water supply was not useable though - it's a hand pump and I couldn't get suction to start the water flowing. When's the last time you used one of those! Given the amount of traffic that flows in and out of the service plazas and that the camping lot is not secure, we felt a little exposed especially when the door handle on the RV rattled around midnight. Nothing happened and we didn't see anyone around but it did unnerve us a bit. In a pinch, we'd stay at one again.

This is one of our favorite parks in Wisconsin and we've stayed here annually for the past four years. Late last year they changed ownership but that has not affected the quality of the park so far. It is well run and maintained with lots of activities available for the family. The sites are gravel with a concrete patio. Access roads are all blacktopped and generously sized to enable an easy back-in. Our pull thru site length accommodated our rig and truck without squeezing everything in. Site width is very ample with landscaping that makes it private. Utilities are conveniently placed and all functioned well. Cable TV worked well. We used our hotspot for wi-fi. This is an exceptional park and well worth a visit. We will stay here again (and again).

This is a beautifully maintained campground located right on Hwy 101. From our site we could look out the back window of the RV and catch a view of the Pacific. The site was level blacktop with a grass patio. Length was decent but you had to carefully park the truck across the front without landing on the grass. Site width was narrow at about 25 feet. This put the landscaping shrubbery against the slide-out on the off-door side and very close on the other, making it awkward to access bikes and compartments at the rear. Water pressure was good and the 50a electric was stable. They had a very nice gas campfire pit located a few sites away where we enjoyed evening cocktails and watched the sunsets. The park staff was warm and welcoming and provided a wealth of information about the area. We enjoyed our stay and would come back again.

We stayed here for a night on the way home. It's located well off the interstate and very quiet. The area around the campground is beautiful wide open Montana. I guess we were lucky and didn't meet the "disinterested" receptionist at check-in. Our pull thru site was gravel and level. Utilities were reasonably convenient. Water pressure was good and we put the 50a power to good use with the heat pumps over night. We would stay here again and take advantage of the Hot Spring resorts golf and pool amenities next time.

This park was a great no-frills place to stop on our way home. As others mentioned, you park the rig and truck on the grass. Having rained prior to our arrival I was concerned about sinking into the sod but the ground was still quite firm. Surprisingly, there were not a lot of sites available with full hookups when we arrived. It appears the park has become popular for long term stays. Since there is no one to contact about availability, you just have to take the chance and stop in. Fortunately, it is not far off I-94. There is one pedestal to serve two sites so you need to pull into the site in the proper direction to access to your W/E/S utilities. Electricity was 30 amp. Water pressure was on the low side. TV reception was decent. If we can get in, we would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for a night while heading home. What a surprise! This is a beautiful state park and the Fort Lincoln restorations make it more interesting too. The campground is typical for a state run facility. The roads were gravel and the sites were gravel and level. There was water although it took 75' of hose to connect. There was 30 amp power located in the opposite direction. No sewer; use the dump if needed. We stayed in one of their pull-through half moon sites which offered a peaceful view looking into the woods. There was a picnic table and fire pit. We had arrived on a Sunday so the park was very empty which made it nice and quiet. We wish we had more time to explore the park and the area because it is definitely worth the stop. We will come back again.
