We agree with the previous July review, dusty gravel throughout the park, pull-through sites all way too short to allow toad to remain hooked-up, owners couldn't be nicer or more accommodating. All the pull-through sites are in the open and offer a good choice if you need satellite access, while the sites along the west back edge of the park in fully wooded. We did not check restrooms or laundry. Be prepared for water is extremely hard, probably the hardest that we've ever encountered in an RV campground.

This is a nice family owned park just off US highway 2, but just far enough off the highway so that there was no highway noise. The site are all sand/gravel and the park is clean and well kept up. As stated in earlier reviews this is a great overnight stop. All the hook-ups worked well. There does not appear to be any cable TV, but there were a few off the air channels available and most sites would offer good satellite access.

This is an update to our July, 2013 review of this park. We've noticed several complaints about the nearby railroad. The tracks run along the south edge of the property, and the trains go (slowly) into a rail yard a mile or more to the west. There is NO through train traffic on these tracks. We have not heard the trains running at night, and we do not consider an occasional daytime toot objectionable, particularly considering all the amenities this park has to offer. Further the only other really decent park in the area is located directly east of this park and has the same railroad tracks along the south edge of their property as well. If you feel the trains could be an issue ask to be placed away from the trains when you make your reservation. They will do their best to accommodate you. Also we previously noted that the park cable TV included several HD channels. This has changed. Apparently the park has changed cable TV providers and the current channel lineup does NOT include any HD TV. Note that there is no local over the air TV available so that is not an option for quality HD TV. Also the park wi-fi has improved substantially and works well most of the time, with the exception being around the dinner hours when everyone is online. We've also seen complaints about the lack of trees in the park. Not sure where that comes from as about half the park is fairly heavily wooded with the other half mostly in the open. Just let your preference be known when you make your reservation.

The rate is after applying the KOA club discount. We rented one of their deluxe sites with "custom furniture" and fire ring. We had little trouble pulling into the site with our 40 ft motor home with toad, but barely made it out with just the motor home and connected on the roadway. Most of the other sides would pose a similar challenge with longer RV's. This is a typical KOA with sand and gravel throughout the park. The pool was warm and inviting, but the water lacked clarity and had an odor we could not place (we have an in-ground pool at our stick built house) and decided against spending much time in the water. The southern loop appears to be mostly seasonal or long-term campers and is in a heavily wooded area. The sites that are probably more likely used for overnighters are mostly in the open. We would probably not camp here again due to the short length of most of the sites.

Date of Stay:

We are essentially in agreement with the most recent reviews. The sites are nicely angled for easy back and the pull-through sites will easily accommodate the longest Class A motor homes with toad. All sites are spacious and nicely separated from each other. There is an aqua center (much like a splash park) a very short walk away from the campground that just opened early this year. There is a small extra fee to use the aqua park, but this really makes this a destination park as well as one suitable for an overnight stay. Note that the park is easily accessed from I-65, but yet far enough away that there is no highway noise.

This is a nice, clean, quiet park. Though we didn't use it, there is an indoor swimming pool available. The park cable TV contained only analog channels, no HD available. Park WiFi was typical, slow and unreliable. Though the park is completely paved, asphalt, we consider the significant site slope and sewer connections that are considerably higher than the site, unacceptable. It is messy trying to drain your sewer hose into the site sewer connection when disconnecting.

This is a new RV park that just opened in May, 2015. It is part of the Williamsburg town owned Kentucky Splash Waterpark and Campground, but you can use the RV park without using the Splash park. The waterpark has existed for several years, but the campground has just been added. The campground consists of a single paved loop, with fairly level gravel sites accompanied by a concrete picnic table area. The sites are spacious and most are long enough to accommodate the longest RV's. Though the sites appear to be hard packed gravel/stone, we found that we had to place large jack pads under our leveling jacks to prevent the jacks from sinking into the gravel. Be aware that there is a small creek that runs along the back side of the RV sites. The night we were there, there was a significant rain storm and we were awakened to a weather radio alert to flooding risk. The small creek had turned into a raging river, and was within inches of overflowing the banks, which would have flooding the entire flat campground area. Needless to say we departed early heading for higher ground. In dryer weather this would certainly not be of concern. WiFi was on a par with most RV parks, slow and unreliable. Good AT&T and Verizon service. A Pilot, Walmart and several restaurants are just down the road right off I-75. Outside of the above rain concerns, the park is a nice, quiet, spacious and clean park and we will certainly use this as a stopover anytime we are passing through this area. And if you have anyone interested in the water park it is inexpensive and right across a large parking lot.

Rate reflects KOA club discount. You couldn’t get any closer and not be in the National Monument as this KOA is located right at the entrance. Another typical KOA, gravel everywhere. We were treated to large gravel trucks spreading additional dusty gravel around the park roads both days we were here. The second day, the pool was drained for inexplicable reasons. No discount offered for the loss of this amenity either. The park Wi-Fi barely worked. The good news was that Verizon and AT&T both offered strong service. Having said all of the preceding, given that there is no other full service camping opportunity this close to the park, we would probably stay here again if we were to return.

The park accepts cash or check only for the camp fee. This park couldn’t be easier to access from I-29. There are many sites spread out in this fairgrounds, with good proximity to the Sioux Falls metro area. There is a railroad track just outside the west fence, but this appears to be a spur into a business and we saw no rail traffic during our stay. The Fairgrounds is not far off the flight path of the Sioux Falls airport and there were a few incoming flights during the afternoon and early evening hours, but no flights after mid-evening. Good satellite, AT&T, and Verizon reception. The fairgrounds camp does have a host that lives on site in the campground and he made many rounds over the course of the day and night. We felt perfectly safe at this camp ground and would stay here again.

This park is easy to get to from either I-80 or I-35 and is an extremely well maintained RV park. As previously noted, this park does cater to longer term campers, but welcome over-night stays as well. Make certain that you call ahead and reserve as this park has very few vacant sites available most of the time. The office is off-site but they will check you in over the phone and deliver your receipt to your site. We strongly suggest that you stay away from sites 1-64, 291, 293 and 322 as they are smaller, narrower, mostly gravel, and seem to be occupied by the longer term residents. Don’t be concerned about using a back-in site as the road ways and sites are very wide and properly angled for easy access. There is Internet available only for a fee, but we do not know how well it may work as we did not use it. Good Verizon and AT&T cell available. Though the park is in a rural farm area, good shopping is only a couple miles away as well as an amusement park. We had stayed at this park twice over the last couple years and will certainly use it again in our travels through the Des Moines area.

Park is near I-70, but far enough away that there was no highway noise. Nice fenced dog run. Clean park, many seasonal, quiet residents. Wi-Fi weak, but worked most of the time. Roads in the park are all gravel and dusty. Though the park was largely empty we were sandwiched between two trailers blocking their views and unnecessarily crowding two neighbors that were there for the week. Most of the sites are quite narrow and our one slide out was almost on top of the next door neighbor’s picnic table.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Close to I-24, easy access, but no highway noise. Very nice fenced dog run. The campground web site looks better than the park actually is. It is a tired park, dusty gravel roads and sites, with little grass, with the exception of the dog run. Lots of long-term residents. However for a place for the night in the Paducah area it’s acceptable. The new park owners (2013) still have more work to do.

Date of Stay:

Rate is Good Sams rate. This is a very nice quiet, immaculately clean park and an excellent example of where the park owners display true pride of ownership. Good Wi-Fi. The park does have many very friendly seasonal campers, mostly more mature, few children, all sites clean and kept in the best possible condition. Roads and parking areas are hard-packed gravel smooth, no ruts, no dust. Lush well maintained lawns at all large sites. We have stayed at all three main RV parks in this area and Spring Lake is by far the best. We will certainly include a stop at this park as we pass through central Tennessee again.

This park is located about 4 miles south of the Badlands National Park main entrance off Highway 44. If you access the park via I-90 exit 131 you will pass through the National Park. If you advise that you are just passing through they will allow you to pass no charge. There are very few RV campground choices in this area and this park rate reflects that. This is a typical KOA, with gravel roads and sites. WiFi almost worked some of the time. Be aware that there is no cell service within this campground, though there is one working pay phone within the park. Cell service is available within much of the National Park. The park cable TV consists of 13 analog channels. A few of the sites may provide satellite access and if needed specify by phone to the camp ground well before your arrival.

Easy off/on I-94; some road noise by not objectionable. This park is actually in the Grass Lake area, but very close to Jackson. Park roads paved, sites are hard packed gravel. This is a smaller clean park with mostly seasonal residents, and very friendly office staff. There are several very long pull-through sites that could accommodate just about anything and are all very level. Most sites satellite friendly, good Verizon and AT&T service. Not a fancy park, but a nice, clean place to stop for a night or longer when in the Jackson, MI area.
