Rate reflects GoodSams discount. As previously noted this park is VERY near I-95, with nice long sites. The night we were there, the highway noise was very loud throughout the night. We understand that weather conditions, wind direction, etc., have a lot to do with this. The more desirable sites further away from the highway appear to be mostly occupied by long term residents. Be aware that there are only a few 50 amp sites available for overnight stays, and unfortunately most of those seem to be on the east end of the park, nearest the Interstate highway, close enough that you can watch the traffic pass by. Further, our 50 amp site, #27, had no electrical disconnect/breaker or sign indicating where one might be. This required plugging and unplugging hot, not a recommended practice. The electric service plug was also precariously close to the ground, within 6", again not a good thing. Also be aware that this park is heavily wooded making satellite signal acquisition difficult from most of the sites. There were a few off-the-air TV stations available. We would probably not stay here again as there are other options along I-95.

The rate reflects a GoodSams discount, a recent affiliation for this park. This is a small nice, quiet, clean park just west of Elkin, only a couple years old, easily accessible and less than 3 miles west of I-77. Signs for the park are well placed along the route from I-77. All park roadways and sites are hard packed crushed stone. Sites 1 thru 7, located along a tree lined edge of a meadow, all have 50/30 amp and water, no sewer, are easy back-in, and can accommodate the longest RV's. Sites 8 thru 10 are tent sites and are located, near the office, all across the road from sites 1-7. Sites 11 and 12, 50/30 full hook-up, are about 1/4 mile west of the office. There is a dump station located near the office. However the dump station is not conveniently located for a class A motorhome as you have to pull at least 20 feet beyond the exit loop thus requiring that you backup after dumping. If you have a toad this would require dumping before connecting up the toad as backing up with a toad is not a recommended practice. Also note that when exiting from the office or dump station onto the county road, there is a blind curve only a couple hundred feet to your left making your exit a bit dangerous. There are several off-the-air TV stations available. Satellite service from sites 1-7 is limited to Dish eastern arc satellites, as DirecTV and Dish western arc satellites access is blocked by the tree line mentioned above. We were given a passcode for WiFi, but were unable to locate a signal at our site. Perhaps WiFi is only available at the office location, but the handout we were given didn't provide any further guidance. AT&T signal is weak (3G only) but usable and Verizon has a good to strong LTE signal. There is a Walmart, several restaurants, several winery's as well as hiking trails in and nearby Elkin. We recommend that you call for a reservation well prior to your arrival as this is a small park, and was full the day we departed.

The rate reflects $3/day upcharge for 50amp service. Though the park is about 5 miles off I-95, it is an easy drive over good roads. Our site was a pull thru, with the site and roads throughout the park crushed stone/gravel all in good condition. We were given a wifi password, but did not have any wifi service at our site. AT&T service is very weak, but Verizon is quite strong. There is no park cable, but our site had good satellite access as do many of the sites in the park. There is a small playground, but no pool. One of the park rules stipulated all dogs were to be leashed, max 6 ft. However we saw several instances of dogs off-leash, something that makes us feel a bit uncomfortable, particularly when the dog is fairly large as was the case here. It's hard to understand why some people don't seem to think common RV park rules like this don't apply to them, or that the park doesn't enforce their own rules. Other than this, the park was acceptable. Given the roaming dogs and the fact that the park is a 10 mile round trip off I-95, we would probably not stay here again.

The rate reflects a KOA discount, and is for a pull thru, 50amp full hookup "premium" site. This KOA is somewhat better than the average KOA as it is well laid out, and the sites are easy to get in and out of. The park is right off highway 301 on the south side of Starke, with much shopping nearby. The roads in the park are paved, our site was asphalt paved with a small concrete patio. Wifi did not work well, but we had good Verizon and AT&T service for voice and data. We did not use the park cable, but many of the sites do have good satellite access. If satellite access is needed we suggest that you make this request when making your reservation as many of the sites will not allow for this due to large trees.

The rate reflects a Good Sams discount for a pull thru, 50 amp site. Recent reviews reflect our views of this park fairly accurately. The park is very clean, main roads are paved, sites are gravel/sand, fairly level, and the hookups are in good condition. The park has quite a few seasonal/permanent residents, but all sites are very clean and picked up. Park buildings all appear to be in like-new condition. The park is 1-2 mile drive just off I-95 with easy access. The park entry is a bit narrow for larger rigs but they do have a reminder sign posted to turn wide, and we had absolutely no in or out issues with our 40 ft + toad rig. We did not use the park cable, but most sites have good satellite access. Park wifi is typical, worked part of the time. Good Verizon and AT&T access. The park is adjacent to what appears to be a county park with walking trails and a small lake/pond, the same that the RV park is on. This park is now on our list of possible stops in our future travels on I-95 in this area.

This is a somewhat unusual park, in that it is actually owned by a non-profit organization with origins back to Airstream. In recent years the campground has been opened to anyone with a self-contained RV as the campground does not have shower facilities. Sites are full hookup, complete with municipal water supply. If you're looking for a playground, pool, picnic table at each site, this is probably not the place for you. However if you're looking for a quiet, peaceful place with some of the friendliest campers you'll ever encounter anywhere, then this is a place for you. There is a small river about 200 feet off the south end of the park for a refreshing swim. Also there is a large covered area with many rockers for you to sit and enjoy the sun setting on the mountains to the west. If you have a larger RV, this is one of the very few places in the South Carolina foothills that can easily accommodate the largest RV's made. Palmetto Cove is close to many fantastic waterfalls, hiking trails and several very large South Carolina State Parks, albeit all with very limited or no accommodations for larger RVs. The campground always has full time volunteer hosts on site. About the only time the campground is really busy is when a rally is being hosted. Though they do not take reservations, a call ahead is suggested if you want to avoid being there during a rally. Other times they do space the campers out to give everyone a lot of space. Almost all of the campground sites provide good satellite access, and there are several strong over-the-air TV stations also available. Verizon and AT&T signals are weak in the campground but workable throughout most of the campground.

We camped here Memorial Day evening. There are two camping areas, one just inside and to the east of the front gate and the other in the rear and northwest end of the fairgrounds. The previous review only addressed this latter location. The front location has 20, 30, & 50 amp services, some back-in and some pull-through sites. All the front sites are near level, but do not have water or sewer at your connection. Water is available to fill your tanks at the first building on your left as you enter through the front gate. Sewer dump is located behind the bathroom/shower facilities and in front of the aforementioned camp location. We were provided a phone number and name to contact when we called a few days earlier to make a reservation. When we arrived, water and sewer locations were not apparent so called the number provided and the gentleman was nice enough to come right over on his day off (5 minutes) and personally showed us the sewer and water locations. We were the only ones in the front campground that evening. There was some traffic noise from the adjacent roadway, but not objectionable at night. Good over air TV and good satellite access. No WiFi, no pool, etc.

Rate reflects KOA discount and was for a 30 amp full hookup site. We'll preface our comments by noting that our stay was for a night as we passed through the area, but over the Memorial Day weekend. The park was full, packed like sardines in a can. Adults walking around with open containers and kids everywhere. The middle row is the 30 amp row with the other rows mostly 50 amp sites and much more spacious than the 30 amp row. We took the 30 amp site as it was all that was available, and we were unable to locate anything else in the area. We had trouble navigating the roads with the escort due to other campers parking out on the roadways in the park. Our single slide almost touched the adjacent site's tow vehicle. The pool was wall to wall bodies and we couldn't imagine it possible to throw enough chlorine in to keep bacteria to safe levels. Purchased the park pizza for supper, inexpensive $12, but nothing to brag about. Tried the Sunday pancake breakfast plus coffee ($3.50 each) no sausage or bacon available, pancakes edible. Seems everyone had to have a campfire that night, smoke almost unbearable, our allergies complaining days later. Reminded me of the pollution in Bejing, China. This park is trying to be a destination park and would expect similar experiences to ours throughout the summer. Not a place for people like us that just want a clean, quiet, safe place to stop for a night along our travels.

This park is located about half a mile north of I-80, and is quiet. Campgrounds are clean and grass cut. However, this part of Nebraska is flat, and all the sites are level with grade, leaving them muddy and soft when it rains. It had rained the previous day of our arrival, and if we'd had to level, jack pads would have been required to prevent the jacks from sinking. A few inches of crushed stone/gravel could solve this problem by elevating each parking site by a few inches. To the parks' credit, they have a creative storm shelter in this tornado prone area. It is a 53' steel cargo container buried to within a few inches of the top with added top vents. Should certainly do the job of keeping campground residents safe in the event of a storm. The park WiFi also worked continuously during our stay even though the park was full that evening. Proves once again that it can be done if the park really wants to provide good WiFi. We'd certainly use this for an overnight stop if we should pass this way again.

Contrary to a previous review, we observed this park to be clean and well layed out. There are a few long term residents, but they are located out of the way on the southeastern side of the park. The front of the park are all VERY long pull throughs, some of the longest we've seen in our travels. We would say that these pull throughs would benefit from a few inches build up of course gravel, but they were not overly wet during our stay even though it had rained all day prior to our arrival. No over the air TV, but campground provides cable TV via Charter Cable and provides each site with a remote to control the TV channels, with you setting your TV to channel 3. Just don't forget to return the remote upon your departure. WiFi was good throughout stay even though park was full, see it can be done.

See our previous review October, 2015, for full rate explanation. This Colorado State Park fills up months in advance so bite the bullet and go to the park web site as soon as you know when you will be staying here and pay the $10 to make a reservation if a site is available. Many of the sites are crescent type pull throughs, the rest being backin's. The park is fully paved with all sites fully concrete. The utilities connections were well planned out, concrete basins for sewer connections to prevent any spills from escaping, potable water source well separated from sewer, etc. Other RV parks could learn a lot about how to do this properly from this park. The park sites on the side of Chyenne Mountain (NORAD buried deeply in the bowels of the mountain) about 500 feet elevation above Colorado Springs to the north east. The views at night are breath taking. Some mornings you may be able to hear reveille from Ft. Carson which is located near the entry to the park.

This KOA is actually located about 20 miles south of Pueblo, just off the east side of I-25. Very little highway noise, and great views of the mountains to the west. Nice dog park but grass was 6 inches high, badly needed to be cut. Sites are quite narrow. Even though park was not full a motorhome with a young couple and four children was placed right next to us hours after our arrival. We were so close that when they disconnected the propane line off their grill, the propane that vented set off our inside propane alarm. With a little more awareness and consideration on the part of the owners/operators of this park, this could be better than average KOA. As previously noted there is a small local truck stop with good fuel prices located just off the I-25 exit to the campground with easy access to car and truck/RV pumps.

Date of Stay:

The campground is easily accessed from I-25, but far enough away that there is no highway noise. Views of the Santa Fe area are great, as the campground is located on a ridge. Campground is all dirt/gravel with a concrete "patio" for each site. Most sites are pull-throughs with our site being just barely long enough to accommodate our 40' motorhome and toad. Good satellite access from just about any site in the park. Wi-Fi worked fairly good most of the time even with the park full, unusual as compared to most campgrounds today. Registration is at a building on your right after you enter the park, pull all the way to the end of the building to stop to allow clearance behind you; this is NOT marked, so noting this from our experience. The campground has a very nice dog park, and very extensive solar electric array to provide green energy to the park.

Rate reflects Good Sam discount. Park is located on the northwest corner of Interstate exit. You take a left turn on the first road after exiting I-44 and then a sharp left again from the side road into the campground. Go to the end of the asphalt paved parking area and turn around, yes, plenty of room to navigate the U turn, we did it with ease in our 40 ft motorhome with toad, and pull into any of the concrete diagonal or back in sites. Registration is at the building at the west end of the campground. Do recommend you call ahead as space in the park is limited. Much of the road noise we experienced occurred in the early morning hours due to traffic accelerating onto I-44 west bound from the entry ramp located just feet from the edge of the campground. Highway noise is always a factor of wind direction, humidity, temp, etc. so your experience may be different than ours. We did not find the noise much of an issue, but we are on the road a lot and sleep fairly well. We'd certainly use this park again for an overnight stay when passing through this area due to its easy access. Exiting the park could be an issue if traffic is heavy as you have to make two right hand turns to get back to I-44.

Rate reflects GS discount. Recent previous reviews are quite accurate. Roads in the campground are gravel, but for the most part not dusty. TV is via off air, or satellite if you have that. Satellite service may be difficult if your dish is roof mounted as most sites are quite wooded. Friendly staff, quick check-in, and escort to site. Many long term residents mostly on the eastern side of park, but their sites clean and quiet. There was some construction on the Interstate to the east of town, but a call to the park provided us with easy to follow directions into the campground. We'd stay here again.
