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.

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).

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.

This is nice park located conveniently in the Washington wine country. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and our receptionists provided an abundance of good info about the local wineries. The sites are predominantly pull thru with concrete runners to park on. Site length was tight for accommodating a 39' rig and truck. Site width is generous and the placement of all utilities convenient. Cable was decent. WiFI was ok. The park is well maintained and we would definitely go back again.

This is a low key park, run on a shoestring, but that's what makes it special. There are only 8 sites, 4 pull thru and 4 back-in. The road and the sites are all gravel and reasonably level. Access to any site is generous. The manager greets you with a trash can and a floor mat when you arrive which is a nice touch. The sites have decent width and good length to handle the rig and truck. While you can see the traffic go by on I-94, the park is surprisingly quiet. Water and electric service was fine and conveniently located. Didn't use the sewer because we were there for only the night. This is a decent place to stop if you're passing thru the area.

Located right on the Spokane River where it meets Lake Coeur d'Alene, this is a picturesque campground. The park is predominantly pull-thrus so in/out access was very convenient. Site length was decent and accommodated a 39' rig and truck very well. Pad was gravel and reasonably level. Site had a picnic table and decent space between other sites. Check-in was easy and the office staff very helpful. Electric, water & sewer were conveniently located and functioned well. Wi-Fi connectivity was not so good. Cable was ok. We would definitely stay here again.

Like others we chose this park as a basecamp to tour the Humboldt Redwood forest both North and South and it worked out great. We were warmly greeted and our receptionists gave us lots of info and tips about the area. The sites are predominantly pull thru, blacktopped and in good condition. Access was easy in/out. There is a picnic table. W/E/S utilities are convenient to access and we experienced no problems. Wi-Fi was so-so. Cable was ok. Site length was a bit cramped to fit a 39' rig plus the truck. Site width is good but a bit close too. The park is well maintained. We would stay here again.

This is a large park and filled with snowbirds during the winter months. The amenities are first rate and there are lots of activities. We really liked this park because it is such an active community. They have a nicely maintained, walkable executive par 3 golf course. The sites are generously sized with a concrete pad. The rig parks on gravel and there is plenty of space alongside to park the truck on gravel too. The access roads are wide enough to enable easy back in. All water/electric/sewer utilities worked well. Wi-Fi is not available at the site but you can get it in their community buildings. We really enjoyed our stay at Palm Creek and would come back again.

We chose to stay for a week in one of this parks premium sites overlooking the Amish farmland. We were guided to our site which was all gravel and reasonably level but looking unkempt with patches of grass growing throughout the gravel. Site width was about 25 feet and a bit close to the neighboring rigs for a premium location. There are no trees in the premium section. Water pressure was good at 40+psi, 50 amp electric was reliable with voltage varying between 113 and 117. There is no pool and there were very few families with children as a result, which some travelers may find desirable. Wi-Fi was very good when you could get it. Our location was at the fringe so it was difficult to connect while inside the RV and if another rig was next door you, you had to sit outside to get a signal. On Sunday we couldn't connect at all. I talked with the manager who sat behind the counter with his hands behind his head and matter of fact they told me that it was as good as it gets and there was nothing they could do about it according to his network engineer. They only had so many connections available and when they are all used, that's it until someone turns off or disconnects their device. He also said they shut down internet access from 11pm to 7:30am every night to prevent abuse. If you're an early riser, you will discover it is actually closer to 8:00am every morning that internet access is restored. Considering the nightly rate at Disney's Fort Wilderness isn't much different, we would expect a comparable level of accommodations and service. By comparison, this park is overpriced and not even close in value. Their occupancy during the week was much lower than other parks we stayed at during our trip and even over a major holiday the park was filled, but not full. We presume they justify the rate partly because of the view, which was lovely. However, after staying at campgrounds on the Bay of Fundy with stellar views and great Wi-Fi that were $30 per night less their view wasn't worth the extra $. This park could be a 9 - 10, but we won't stay here again until they get realistic about their rates.

This is a park that has the potential to be tremendously better. Office personnel were friendly upon arrival and guided us to our site. The transient sites are pull thru's in a grass field with some trees and set apart from the seasonals. The site pad had short gravel strips where the wheels were expected to go, otherwise its all grass. Gravel was recently laid, poorly prepped, lumpy and graded such that it made it a challenge to level the RV. Our particular site also had a small "outhouse style" electrical building close enough that the awning could not be used. Otherwise, the park was clean but tired looking, similar to their entrance sign which was faded and peeling but still erect. There is a pool which is elevated and rather plain with a simple concrete patio and a chain link fence close to its perimeter. We did not use the restroom facilities. Water pressure was around 30psi. The 30 amp electric was good. However, for those of you who depend on the internet as you travel, you need to be advised as to how this park operates their service. Park management is very concerned about their guests using up all the bandwidth. They have instituted a draconian process to control access using the MAC address, which is the physical address of the Wi-Fi card built into your device. They charge you $2 for EACH computer or smart phone you register. Once they have authorized your MAC, you are given a password to access the internet. Then you find out they use ancient router technology that is so slow you could push a rope uphill faster. The next morning we could no longer access the internet so we presume they removed our MAC authorization at midnight. Bizarre!! We talked to management about it and they went on the defensive, arguing with us that they had the best system available and offered no refund. For what you get, this is an expensive park for an overnight stay and there are other parks in the area that we would try the next time.

The campground's location on the Bay of Fundy is outstanding. From our site we could watch the bay from the back window of the RV and walk to the shore within minutes where there are incredible views of the St. Martins Sea Caves, the cove and harbor and a 25+ foot tidal change. Our pull-thru site was all grass pad & patio and reasonably level with minor adjustments needed. Water pressure was decent around 35 psi. However, electrical voltage fluctuated and our EPMS went into protective shutdown several times because voltage dropped below 103. Wi-Fi was on the weekend the campground got busy. It's family friendly and there are lots of children. Campfires abound in the evening. The campground's location is a bit out of the way if you plan to use it as a base camp for visiting Fundy National Park and Hopewell Rocks. Highway 111 not only adds miles / kms to get there, you will also travel over some of the roughest road we experienced in Canada. However, don't shortchange St Martins as a destination in itself. A must see is the Fundy Parkway. There is a fee to enter. Currently, the parkway is a 20km drive with 17 look-offs along the incredibly scenic Bay of Fundy. This is an active project that will eventually extend the road to Fundy National Park by 2017. We are looking forward to staying here again.

This is a smaller campground nestled in the hills of New Hampshire near Potanipo Pond. Interior roads are gravel. The transient sites are paved pad and patio. Our's was easy to back into but required blocking to level. Site widths were reasonable and you didn't feel like you were camping on top of your neighbor. We experienced no problems with the bugs reported by others, but there is a small creek and standing water adjacent to the park that could be the source under the right conditions. Water pressure was decent at 35psi. Power was a stable 50amp around 117 volts. There is no pool, but Potanipo pond has a public swimming beach located just down the road. The park was clean and reasonably well kept. There are some typical seasonal sites where maintenance is needed to keep it looking sharp. The bath house and laundry facility is new and very clean. The Wi-Fi and cable connections were excellent. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back again.
