Nice KOA, we stayed for one night on our way back to central Texas. We did laundry, showered, etc. We arrived late afternoon so we stayed put in the RV. Cable tv worked fine with a good number a channels and a good amount of shade around us. Unfortunately the pool was out of commission, but they told us this when we called ahead. Good one night stop. Our site was very long and level. We kept the toad connected annd still had space to park at least one more care if needed.

This park another great Arkansas State Park. Big open spaces, paved sites full hookups, lots of activities to choose from and close enough to Memphis for a day trip. Wildlife is everywhere, deer, racoons, hawks, etc. You could not ask for more. There is a lake fro boating and swimming however we didn't make it into the lake. We went into Memphis for the day, it's about an hour away. Lots of shade sites. Well keep park not trashy at all. Knowledgeable staff in the front office/registration and the camp store is pretty well equipped.

We've stayed here previously, about 5 or so years ago. There really are no other options that come close to Cherry Hill. Close to DC, with options from the park to shuttle in from the park. We drove into the train station without problems. Our site had shade morning and evenings before the sun went down. Navigating the park is easy enough. One of the largest on site stores I've seen. Golf carts are available if needed. We didn't really use any of the park amenities as we were in DC early in the day until late. Restrooms and showers were clean. We'll be back.

Yep, this place has just about everything you'd want in a resort/destination campground. When you see it on their website it's pretty close to what you get in the park, unlike some other sites. We stayed here while visiting Boston. There's not a lot to choose from in the area. Lots of workers running around all times of the day, and it shows, this place is very well manicured and clean. It's kinda hard to describe the feeling inside...kinda like a village where you feel "mostly" welcome. You have to punch a code to get in which is fine, then you have to punch a code to get out, which I thought was odd. Upon entering and exiting you drive past a booth, the worker inside watching you punch this code every time. Plenty of local shopping in the area. Good enough access to Boston. We stayed in a "Premium" site it was gravel with a concrete pad and picnic table. By the looks of it sites are all gravel, some were fairly unlevel...ours was okay. There are all kinds of campers around and kids everywhere, and with this combination comes lots and lots of campfires. Wifi is kind of a pain, it's free but you have to jump through a few registration hoops...even then the service is spotty at best. Mornings and evenings the wifi is super slow, prime time I guess. Concierge services were helpful. We have never been to Boston before and she gave us some pretty good tips based on the amount of time we were visiting. Restrooms and Showers were clean. Amenities in the park are what you are paying for, we didn't really use them. For the price I guess I'd ask for more shower facilities and less gravel, due to the dust. Not sure I'd stay here again just due to the fact we really didn't need all the bells and whistles.

We've stayed here numerous times, I only review once a year or so though. The location is the best in the city. Really close to downtown, friendly staff, well stocked store and really good Tex-Mex right across the street. The pool was closed for renovations. It's no surprise due to the number of folks here in the winter. Call ahead in the winter months, it is packed with snowbirds.

This place is divided into two campgrounds. One side has everything, the other side nothing. We only stayed here one night, so it was no big deal that there was nothing on our side, which was basically a field with hookups. We were on our way back from Boston to TX. No one in our party used the restrooms or showers, they were too far away. It looks like they are putting ups some buildings on the nothing side. Honestly there is an old barn and restrooms on the "nothing side". It is across the street from the main park. We went to the Natural Bridge, which is pretty amazing. Town has some grocery stores and small restaurants. This seems to be a destination park for locals. Lots of kids activities on the main side of the park. We were in site U124. We did drive through the other side of the park in our toad. There seemed to be some kind of family reunion of rebel flags and barbeque pits on Yogi Lane by the river. Lots of tents, jacked up trucks, canopy tents, etc. and open beer cans everywhere. Everyone looked like it was a party...at that point I was glad I was on the, "nothing" side.

I knew this was a parking lot going in. The one thing I didn't count on is this: There is a private tent camping area enclosed by a fence next to the restrooms/showers. It looked miserable in the 95-100 degree heat. They also use the facilities for everything. No need to memorize the security code to the restroom, the doors are all propped open by the campers all the time. I rarely found toilet paper and the showers were a step above a filthy. The sites are beyond close, our Honda CRV fit slid in next to us at an angle partially under the awning. Your are gonna see your neighbors every move, you are that close. Yes it's close to New York City, however the picture on their website is not what you see. It's a lot farther than that. The Statue of Liberty if slightly recognizable over the cars, buses, truck, boats, etc. The prices to get into the city are cheaper than a hotel. We were a group of 4 and it cost us $20.00 a day per person using Metro cards. You have to purchase a separate card to get into NY from NJ, they don't play well together. The Ferry across is $7.00 one way per person. Advertised on their flyer and website is a 10 minute 5 block walk...Nope. More like 25 minutes and 9 blocks, I counted. It's a safe enough walk, just not as close they are advertising. If you are RVing it's really the only choice. I've stayed in the city lots of times and hotels in NYC beat RVs every time. It's just not fun coming out of a Broadway show or shopping late knowing you have a 25 minute walk after all the subways back to your site. I mite stay here again, but just park the RV and get a room in the city. The traversing back and fourth is just too inconvenient in my opinion.

Right in the middle, Buffalo on one side, Niagara Falls on the other. We didn't stay in the park much during the day. In July it's pretty hot, but there appear to be lots of activities to keep kiddos busy. We did use showers/ restrooms and the pool in the evenings, and did laundry one night. Every thing was well kept. The pool could be larger or add another pool. Pool here stays crowded. Sites are level enough, gravel and grass with a fire ring and picnic table. This is another one of those campgrounds where everyone seems to need a campfire, even in July, meaning it gets smokey when that starts. Trip in Niagara was perfect as is to Buffalo. We even went into Buffalo to see the Rolling Stones one night. Park store has enough to keep you there. Great park overall, only thing I'd change is the pool, add a larger 2nd pool.

We are not familiar with the area at all, being from Texas. After some investigating around we chose this park for a few nights on our way to Boston. It appears to be a destination park for lots of folks and does have quite a few residents. We weren't here on a major holiday, but judging by the weekend crowd I imagine this place gets packed. We drove into Pittsburgh two days which was fine. The park is in the middle of nowhere, but the drive is scenic. All facilities worked fine. We stayed in the Red Carpet Row Section. (back-in) Really nice patio and fire ring up against a backdrop of huge trees and creek running behind. Our GPS did not have an optimal route into the park, but the GPS on our phones did. The drive into the park isn't all that treacherous. We have a 37' motorhome pulling a Honda CRV and did fine. As far as kids activities, they have it all. We did rent a boat one day and zip around the lake. There are very few grocery options around or gas stations. Owner/Manager/staff are very nice and helpful. Great place for families and kids or travelers like us. Only downfall to me was, seems everyone started making campfires around 4:00. Some smoke lingers around.

Everything was pretty typical of a KOA campground. Park is large, kind of divided into two parks. We were in site 66 across from the pool. We usually don't stay in the parks much, we get there then go to the city or for other events. The pull throughs up by the pool alternate left and right, meaning you face your neighbor. I'm not a big fan of this type of layout, especially when the person facing has multiple dogs running around in your site, or the smoke from their pit is blowing directly under your awning. They experienced quite a bit of rain recently and the one thing our neighbors weren't going to be excited about when they got up is how the sewers backed up into their site. There was a flood about a month before we got there so maybe that attributed to it. Over nice park, wifi signal was fair, restrooms and showers were clean and sites were fairly level and the pool was cold. Easy access to Indianapolis as well.

There really is no other place to go this close to the city. Very secure, we checked in late with the night security guard without issue. Restrooms were clean and air conditioned. We didn't use showers. Basically a big parking lot with some picnic areas. We stayed here one night on our way to Boston. Currently there's a good amount of road/bridge construction going on, check your GPS and double check it with your phone gps if you're not familiar with the area, kinda easy to miss a ramp/turn due to construction. Plenty of shopping and restaurants around. There is a Casino with other facilities available, we didn't use them.

We stopped off for two nights on our way to Boston. Nice park with wooded sites. We were in a pull through in the back of the park. We enjoyed the surroundings, lots to do in the park at the lakes or downtown. Restrooms were clean, pool was clean but crowded. Lots of tall tree, but we didn't have trouble navigating the park. Some sites are pretty close despite all the greenery. I did notice lots of visitors to various sites through out the park, which wasn't really a problem until it was time for us to leave and all the extra cars parked in the road. It would have been helpful if it was posted somewhere how to be courteous to other drivers. We had to wake up our neighbor at...9:00 a.m. to get him to move cars that accumulated in front of our site. Upon leaving, if you have to turn right onto HWY 187 and don't think you can make it, you can. Do not turn left and think you'll find a place to turn around...you won't find one for miles if you are driving a larger motorhome with you towed vehicle.

We've stayed here before this visit. Nice little KOA park. Has everything a KOA would have that you can rely on. We stayed here one night one our way to Boston. Our price reflects a pull through with picnic table and and concrete pad. Park is easy to maneuver. Easy access to the city, we went to the Murah Building Memorial and Museum, not to be missed. Sites are level, but as always KOAs seem a little expensive for one night stays. I's stay here again.

Nice spread out KOA. Quite a few trees in the park provide some shade. Our site was long and wide enough for our motorhome and towed vehicle with some to spare. Our site was level enough, I did see a site here and there that had some blocks up to level up tires. Wifi was spotty on our end, but phone service was fine and I have unlimited data; additionally quite a few local and national cable channels to choose from as well. The price is a little high but not bad. Everything was kept up, showers, grounds, etc. Seems like over the last 10 years everyone that likes grapes has opened a winery in or around Fredericksburg. Staying at this KOA puts you right in the middle of them, not to mention just a few miles from Lukenbach. We visited a few wineries and a distillery, the distillery was way more interesting. Lots to do in downtown, shopping, browsing, restaurants, or just people watching. Lazy days are right here. We'll be back.

We stayed here for the month of March and really didn't find anything to complain about. The wifi is spotty, just like most rv parks, but worked okay. Owners are friendly and helpful about the area. Park is fairly easy to navigate. We have stayed here before and will again. Lots of trees, sites are gravel and level. Water pressure was good and cable TV had lots of channels.
