Small family campground. If you make a reservation by phone, you may choose your site and if it's available you get it. Friendly staff, clean restrooms. I had trouble with the cable, and someone came within minutes to help. Pool has many lounges but only one umbrella, so if you like the sun, you're good. Many sites along creek. One area for large RV's is basically in the center of parking lot. Most other sites are under shade trees. One thing to beware of is that next door there is a farm and a few times while there we got the odors of what a farm smells like. I may also depend where your site is, so do your research carefully. On the weekend, you can expect an Amish family to come by with a cart of handmade items for sale. Close to many of Lancaster County's things to do. For me this was a 10 because of our needs. But I try to tell it like it is so that others can decide for themselves.

Very comfortable and nice scenery. All wooded sites and many friendly campers. I don't totally understand the rates and fees. The website on which you make the reservation says $25/night. But for 3 nights they charge $85 plus a fee of $4.00; I'd like this to be explained better.

First, I don’t like to be forced to pay a reservation fee. At least 2 campgrounds in this area do this. The one-time non-returnable reservation fee is $3.00. Minus 1 point. The receipt that was given to me is very difficult to understand. It took several minutes to see exactly what I paid, but there are no dates on the receipt other than arrival & departure dates. Minus 1 point. Free Wi-Fi? Not really. You get one coupon with a Tengo Internet code per 24 hr. period, but the catch is that you can only use that code on one device. My wife and I each have a PC and each have a phone. So I was given the option to purchase more coupons at $2.00 per device per 24 hr. period. So for the 4 nights we stayed, I paid $8.00 for “free” internet access. But I must admit, on a Friday evening, the internet was running smoothly, but I still must subtract one more point! There is only one place to dump trash in this very large campground. I suppose the reason is to keep down any wildlife issues. However, with that said, the campground itself was run well. It has hundreds of sites, some big, some small. It’s location is on Lake Huron. There’s a pool, free mini-golf and a nice large camp store with arcade/game room. Our site was large with a very nice fire ring. The utilities were spread far apart. I had to use a second hose to get to the water outlet; the electric and sewer lines barely reached their respective outlets after I moved trailer to accommodate my 25 ft. electric cord. Sadly minus another point. If you go in June, beware of the billions of flying insects that apparently arrive for about 2 weeks. At first I thought they were mosquitos, but were they’re not. They don’t bite, but they are VERY annoying and get all over everything! We may or may not stay here again, only because of the limited choices in the area.

For us, this was almost the perfect camp. Families would probably want to use nearby more family oriented camps. Within 1 mile of this stretch of road there are 3 camps, and 2 RV dealers/parts stores. This is a level campground with gravel roads and sites. We had a concrete patio just next to the RV with picnic table. The only downside was no fire rings. There is a dog walk park and a very nice pool that is 9 ft. deep. One evening, there was entertainment in the office/pool area which I found quite nice. Very good Internet service. Friendly and helpful workers and small gift shop with some conveniences. Giving it a 9 because of lack of fire rings. We would stay here again.

Although this campground is in a “hilly” area, it seems to have very level sites. We had a pull-through and pulled right up and we were level. They seem to have very strict rules, but it seems they are strict because of past bad tenants. Price includes full hookup, cable and Internet. Nice place a couple miles out of town. We would stay here again.

Small, quiet, clean park. Level sites. No fire rings or pits. No pool. Very comfortable. Clean showers and bathrooms. Laundry on premises.

First impressions mean a lot. Well, we got in 90 minutes early and they told me that we’d have to pay extra if we registered early. Check in time: 1 PM. So we decided to go eat lunch and come back at 1 PM. When we came back, I asked about firewood and they told me that it would cost $5 a day to rent a fire ring. I was flabbergasted! They have all these other amenities but NO fire ring? That’s what camping is all about! The Internet is slow at best. The cable TV is 12 channels. Beautifully maintained camp with level concrete pads throughout. The other amenities I mentioned are: pool, fishing, horseshoes, ladder golf, volleyball and basketball. So I guess it depends if you want to compare amenities. We won’t camp here again.

The campground itself was nice enough. Clean restrooms and showers. Some sites under trees, some not. The internet service was quite good. The roads are only one lane wide and it can be a bit tight in there. Even the main drive is a single lane and if two cars meet, they must be careful to get around each other. On all the info I had to get to the CG, it read, Jackson Hole Campground with address as a number and street name. When I arrived, I missed the CG because the sign outside has no reference to a campground; only Fireside Resort. Very confusing. After I got set up I found that there was only 50 amp service. I use 30 amp (which was on my reservation), but they didn’t bother to say anything when we signed in. My wife went to borrow a converter, that they sell for $24.00 but she had to put a $50 deposit on it. I also didn’t have a fire ring at my site. When I brought this up, they said I was at a new site and they would tell the maintenance man to dig one right away. It never happened. I think the owners here are more interested in their cabins and other things and collecting these huge fees. My cost per night includes taxes. We would not camp here again.

Small, family oriented (homey). Owners are very friendly and attentive to our needs. Very nice place to stay for a couple of nights. Located between the highway and train tracks, which might put you off. First night, I was awoken about 4 times by train whistle. Clean laundry and restrooms. The owners collection of hundreds of DVDs are there to borrow; a very nice touch! Beautiful flowers and garden near office. We would stay there again.

Used this campground as a one night stopover. Very friendly and helpful owners. This is their first year as owners. There are 10” corrugated drainpipes that are not quite buried and I did worry about accidentally running over the end of these. I wouldn’t want to cut a tire. There is a mixture of gravel sites and grass covered sites. The owner allowed me to choose where I’d like to go, so I took the grass covered site. It appears that all sites are quite level. The laundry room was clean, but I didn’t see the shower or rest rooms. There’s a nice horseshoe pit for playing or watching. The internet service was quite good. I would camp here again.

Great campground! Right next to the entrance of Devil’s Tower. Clean everything! Not just your usual office store, but gift shop and restaurant, too! I didn’t know this until after we checked in, but every night at 9PM they show the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, outside, under the stars with Devil’s Tower in the background. (as long as the weather is OK). They do not allow campfires at individual sites but they have two community campfires every evening. There are grills at every site which may be used for cooking. It also seems to me, that just about every site has a great view of Devil’s Tower. Internet service was not so good, but they tell you that right up front! We would camp here again.

After reading all the great reviews about this campground, I was happy to arrive here! The only flaw we really had were the dryers in the laundry room. My wife reported to me that they were not very efficient. Clothes were not drying properly in a reasonable amount of time. There are 2 pools on the property and both are sparkling! Plenty of room to spread out and if you don’t have a fire ring on your site, they will deliver one to you. We enjoyed our stay here and would come back.

Friendly campground. The staff works hard to keep things working smooth. We stayed during the July 4th holiday and the campground got rather full. There are 202 sites but this campground really squeezes 'em in. My slideout was about 5 feet from my neighbor’s slideout. After setting up, I had to park my truck on a diagonal to make it fit. The property shares space with a motel (same owners). We didn’t use the pool, but it was very clean. The laundry rooms were clean, as were the rest rooms. The cable TV is $3 extra per day. As soon as I hooked up, I saw that most channels had “snowy” pictures. For the next 24 hours I worked with the staff to resolve it, but finally asked for a refund, which was happily given. Internet service was usual for a campground setting. Great in the early morning or late at night but hard to get at other times. On the entrance side of my trailer there was a muddy puddle in the grass, which seems to be a water line leak under the soil. After I reported this, the staff filled it with stone so that I would not step in the mud, but it was still a patch of wet stone for the entire visit. This, to me is very bothersome. Such things as that need to be repaired. I’m hoping that it was a fresh water line and not sewage. Since there are so many campgrounds in the area, we would not stay here again.

The first thing I noticed about this campground was that they had recently dumped gravel in areas on the roads that I presume were in pretty bad shape. When I pulled into the check-in area my truck and trailer felt like they were going to sink. I don’t think anything was graded or tamped, just dumped. There were several areas like that in the park. Sites are fairly level, but some leveling was necessary on most sites. Grassy sites with gravel drives. I’m not sure about the pool. It didn’t appear that the water was clean…but I’m not sure if it was the pool liner or the water itself. We did not use the pool. The laundry room was clean. The person at the desk when I checked in seemed to be distracted by some “children issues” and therefore came off as being a bit curt with me. Kind of hurried me off. The printed map is a bit confusing. There are arrows showing roads as one way, but if you follow the map, you can’t get out! Most guests just used all the roads as two-way. The brochure does not reflect actuality with information given. There is no kid’s activity calendar, but they do have a playground. Very disappointed in this KOA. The one thing my wife and I were very happy with was the Wi-Fi, however we would not return.

Large, open grassy sites, with young trees scattered throughout. A very nice place to spend some time. Too bad we only had 2 nights there. Friendly. Clean. Their Internet is secure and like being home. Cable TV is great; especially when you’ve been without TV for several days. Crystal clear heated pool. I highly recommend this park. We would camp here again.
