The long, paved, level pull-thrus at this campground are great and have good hook-ups. The owner is personable and helpful and he went out of his way to give us a site with a sewer connection that was convenient to the one of our trailer. We stayed here a couple of years ago and we could see that they had made improvements when we stopped here this time. The office and the bath house are a little run-down but as it appears that most people use it as a one night stopover that is probably not that important. There are some long term people in the back of the park but the RVs looked to be in good shape. We would feel comfortable staying here again on our way up or down I-95.

This campground is okay for an overnight stop as it is easy on/off I-95. However, we were unimpressed from the time we pulled into the entrance road. Our understanding was that the current owners have had the park for a couple of years and have started upgrading but it appears that they have a lot more to do. The roads are dirt and the sites are grass which were soft and muddy when we were there. Our site, however, was long and level. There are no provisions or supplies in the office and the picnic tables were a disaster. We could not get wi-fi at our site. The entrance sign is not prominent so be careful not to miss the entrance road. We stayed here using Passport America, which is the rate quoted and were disappointed with the campground.

A tropical retreat, nestled in the industrial outskirts of New Orleans, this resort/campground on the water offers a safe, relaxing refuge while visiting "the big easy". Although you might find the area after you get off of the main highway the road leading to Pontchartrain Landing somewhat concerning, once you turn into the campground you will find it to be a lovely spot with nicely landscaped level sites and great amenities. We highly recommend taking the shuttle bus that they run into the city. The 15 minute ride is convenient, comfortable and the driver is most accommodating. The entire staff if friendly, helpful and informative. We stayed here 5 nights using the Passport America rate. We enjoyed this park and would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.

This is a very basic campground that really needs some work. The name on their brochure, which we were given upon our arrival, has been changed to include "rustic" resort and campground which, indeed, it is. We stopped here overnight with our 33'Fifth Wheel using Passport America. We felt the rate we paid was commensurate with the condition of the park. Had we paid full price we would have been even more disatisfied that we already were. Our pull-thru site was very unlevel side to side, as were many others and the overall look of the place was dismal and run-down. There are minimal amenities other than a small restaurant which we did not use but other campers said was surprisingly good. Wi-fi was only available at the office. If we were in the area again we would look for another place to stay.

The sites here are alternate directions with shared services and are only about three feet apart. The area we were in had short pull-thrus for good sized trailers making it difficult to find a place to park the tow vehicles. We had reserved a pull-thru site but because of the crowded conditions and trees on our site we had to back out as there was not room to pull forward. This seems to be a very busy park which is not surprising as there are not many options for camping in Eureka Springs. It is only a five minute drive up the road to the Passion Play and Christ of the Ozark which was very helpful. We were told that the campground has just been sold and would be under new management in October.

We used this park as an overnight stop. Although it is five miles from I-29 we had no problem finding it with the directions provided by the campground. We were greeted by a friendly staff member and escorted to our site, which was long and level, allowing us to stay hooked-up for an easy early morning departure. The bathrooms and showers were clean and inviting. Wi-Fi did not work at our site but better reception is possible near the office. They have a well-stocked convenience store which has a bigger than average RV section as well as wine and liquor, gifts, food essentials, and a large toy area. In addition, for an extremely reasonable price they make pizza and deliver it to your site -- a feature we appreciated and took advantage of, enjoying it thoroughly. We stayed using the Passport America rate. Our rig is 33' long.

This is a good park for an overnight stop, being an easy on/off I-80, but be aware that the interior roads are extremely rough and the sites are less level than advertised. Most everyone had trouble leveling after pulling in to their site. However, the sites are nice and long with plenty of room for big rigs and there are spacious grassy areas between the sites. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. The bathrooms and showers were clean and the laundry was adequate (with $1.50 washers and dryers), but could have been cleaner. Wi-Fi and cell service were excellent at our site. Our rig is 33' long. We felt this campground was a bit highly priced ($35) even with our Good Sam discount.

This campground is easy on/off of I-80.It is an older park but well kept. The interior roads are gravel and our site was gravel, level, and shady. There are nice grassy areas around the sites with adequate space between. The laundry was clean and had more than a sufficient amount of machines at a very good price per load. The store had a magazine and small gift area as well as being well supplied with essentials. We had very good Wi-Fi and cell service. The campground is convenient to all attractions in the area, each being only 10-15 minutes away, and there are many major national retailers and fast food chains well-represented in town. We stayed here three nights in a 33' rig. The rate quoted reflects the Good Sam discount. An extra hint: Nearby Fort Cody is a great place to pick up souvenirs. They have a vast selection. Also, take a few minutes to visit the 20th Century War Memorial which is 5 minutes away on 83 South. It is most impressive.

We were so happy that we chose this town-run campground. If you are planning to visit Scotts Bluff and Chimney Rock this is where you want to stay. It is a stone's throw from Scotts Bluff and our site afforded a magnificent view of that landmark. The campground has concrete pads and patios with spacious, large, level pull-thrus with grass areas between sites. Our pull-thru site could not have been roomier. We had good Wi-Fi and cell reception on our Tracphone. We felt that the price of $24 (with Good Sam discount) was an extraordinary bargain for the ambiance and location of this campground and highly recommend it.

This is a good overnight stop if travelling on 385. We had a roomy, level, white gravel pull-thru site. The facility was clean and well-organized with a fuel-stop, restaurant and a nicely supplied store. We would stop here again, without question, if on Route 385. The rate quoted is Passport America.

We stayed here four nights over the Labor Day weekend. The campground was jam-packed and the sites were extremely close. Out pull-through site, and many others, was quite short, with barely room to park the truck across the front of our rig. We were fortunate, however, to have a scenic view of the badlands, as the campground is in a picturesque setting. The campground hostess could not have been friendlier or more helpful. This campground is only a block from the entrance to Theodore Roosevelt National Park and within walking distance of the little town of Medora. There is a small convenience store in town that has only basic essentials (not a real food store) with gas pumps attached for fuel. We suggest making sure to bring the food you will need and fuel-up on your way to or from Medora at Exit 42 on I-94, 15 miles East of Medora. The campground has red clay sites which we understand are normally quite dusty but, apparently, unusual rains created oozy red mud that was difficult not to track into our camper during our stay. Although it is a basic no-frills campground with some deficits, of the two in Medora this is the better choice and if you want to see the North Dakota Badlands and Theodore Roosevelt National Park(which are well worth the visit) it is a convenient place to stay while doing so.

This campground is easy to find and they have great signs leading you off of I-90 to the campground. This is a wonderful place to stay. We were given a choice of several sites when we arrived and were taken by golf cart to view them before selecting the site we preferred. We were then escorted to that site. We had a long, level, shaded pull-through site near the pool, laundry, and bathhouse which was very convenient. The roads are paved and easy to maneuver. Sites are gravel. Chris' is located approximately 2 miles from Spearfish Canyon (a "must-see") and 10 miles to the Deadwood area. Walmart and other stores and restaurants are within 1 mile. We had good Wi-Fi for two days but could not connect on the weekend. The laundry was clean with good machines. We stayed here 4 nights in a 33' rig and highly recommend this park. The rate quoted reflects a Good Sam discount. Be aware that they do not accept credit cards.

This is simply a place to pull off safely for the night. It is directly off of the I-90 interstate and is super easy to get to. However, it is a basic "campground" with long, level pull-through sites for a one night stop. The washers and dryers appeared to be new but we did not use them. There is no office. Registration is in the laundry room. You fill out the required information on the envelope provided and pay with cash on the honor system. The rate quoted is Passport America.

We stayed here two years ago and stopped again this summer for an overnight on our way to South Dakota. It is an easy on/off from I-90. We had a long, very level, grassy, pull-through site and did not have to unhook our truck from our fifth wheel, making it an easy start the next morning. The staff here was welcoming, warm and friendly and made sure to invite us to the ice cream social. They have a well-stocked store with a nice gift area as well as essentials. The Wi-Fi and cell service were excellent. We did not use the pool but it is large and looked inviting. We highly recommend a stay here. The rate quoted reflects the KOA discount.

If you are looking for a quiet, secluded place in a rustic setting this is where you want to head. However, be aware and prepared for the lack of sewer hook-ups, especially if doing more than an overnight. We stayed 5 nights and had a spacious, long pull-through site in a wooded area that required absolutely NO leveling. That said, there were several negatives we found during our Monday-Friday stay. First, having no sewer connections required us to use the facilities in the bathhouse but the bathrooms were not cleaned until the last day of our stay. We are well-versed RVers and consider ourselves to be easy-going but we found this to be unacceptable. Also, there was no hot water in the sinks in the bathrooms. In addition, there was never anyone in the office to address questions, buy ice, or provide help if needed. The owner of the campground was friendly and tried to be helpful but appeared to be busy with a personal project rather than taking care of business. We were disturbed to find we had no cell service, no emergency phone provided and we could rarely find anyone around leaving us concerned should we have an emergency or health issue. On the other hand, the Wi-Fi reception was excellent. The $30 rate seemed high for a campground with no amenities or services. We understand that the owners have only had this campground for 2-3 years but feel that they need to do more to upgrade it. We used it as a home base to tour Taliesen and The House on the Rock. Both are quite a distance from the campground and we suggest looking for another place to stay closer to Spring Green while seeing these tourist attractions.
