Urban area campground with lots of trees. Really nice treed pet area in the back of the park. Very few pull-throughs, but the back-in space was plenty wide enough to park our dolly and toad beside our coach. We were able to disconnect and reconnect right in front of our space without problems. Very nice owner and on-site staff. Store on-site and very easy access to and from the interstate. Very quiet, friendly folks, many of whom are permanent residents there. Park is clean!

Previous reviews showed $20 price, which attracted us. That's actually the FMCA rate. Their standard rate is $35, but the owner discounted $5 for me being retired military. Relatively new park, very clean, owner was super helpful and talked a lot about the history of the place. It's literally on the old Route 66 highway. She's got big plans for developing the park and we'd love to stay there again after those plans are fulfilled. Compared to what we read about other parks in the area, the standard rate is overpriced for what the park is right now, unless you're using the FMCA discount. However, if making a new friend in the RV community has value to you, come on and join us there. When we drove in, we didn't even have to drop our levelers. Very nice. Bathhouse and pool area were beautifully landscaped. While there was no specific pet area, there are large grassy areas in which to walk your dog. Owner is considering adding a store to sell artisan & food goods, like one of our other favorite campgrounds. She also has two books for sale, written by a fellow who grew up on the property when his family raised chickens there a few decades ago. We'd stay there again - with a current FMCA membership!

This was our second stay in this park within two weeks. We came back because we were happy with the cleanliness, ease of access, and security. Unfortunately, this time there was significant construction going on (building new concrete pads). This didn't concern us because we were only staying one night. When we tried to pull into our site, I had to move 30-40 grids of rebar that the concrete crews stacked across a third of our site. No mention of this was made when we checked in. When I raised the issue with the park attendant, who said only "I'm sorry". No effort was made to get someone to move the rebar for me or anything else. An email to the city (it's a city-owned park) did not elicit a response. At 7 a.m. this morning, the concrete crew arrived and began unloading heavy equipment, making a lot of noise well before most parks quiet hours are over. Bottom line: It's a good park, but if you're considering this park, (1) ask if they have construction going on, (2) ask to check your site before paying anything, and (3) insist on any encumbrances being removed from your site before you pay for it.

Beautiful, clean park with good distance between units. On lakeshore with lots of space to walk our dog. We stayed after Oct. 1, when they go to half-price rates for the off-season. Normal rates are $22. There were only 3 units at our end of the park, so it was very quiet. While our spot was dirt/grass, there were ample hard surface pads. Even so, we backed in to a level spot. This park would've rated a 9 or 10 except for 3 items: 1. As a city-owned park, you'd think city ordinances that might affect campers would be highlighted. Lake View has a city ordinance prohibiting pit bulls and rottweilers inside the city limits. The only thing the web site said was "Pets welcome"; no mention of breed restrictions. We didn't discover this until after we arrived, despite calling ahead to see if they'd have space and if dogs were OK. It's almost a month after our stay and there is still no mention of breed restrictions on the web site. 2. There were no registration forms for late arrivals in the box by the office. This meant no guidance on the breed restriction issue or anything else. We opted to take our chances and, if our Rottweiler caused an issue, I told the staff we'd be sure to mention these failings in court. 3. Because we arrived after the office closed, we had no ability to access the WiFi the first night because they require payment before giving you the password. This wasn't mentioned when I called ahead; I'd have given them a credit card number in advance.

Exceptionally clean park with lots of attendants throughout our weekend stay. Plenty of open space to walk our dog. We were attending a convention, so the park being next door to the convention center made it very easy to let our dog out often enough for her comfort. (Now if she'd just been that cooperative getting back in the coach!) We were right next to a large open area so there was plenty of room to walk her and not be bothered by other dogs (room for 4-5 dogs to exercise without interfering with each other). Almost all spaces appeared to have reasonably tall shade trees (most appeared to be a bit above the height of the coaches/trailers). Each site seemed to have a picnic table and fire pit. We stayed in the J loop on the perimeter of the park. These parking loops were really well-designed to pull in past your space and back straight in with no difficulty. If pulling a dolly, recommend asking for a 50-60' space. We had a 35-40' space that was just long enough for our motorhome plus a car. Had we towed a vehicle, there would not have been room for a dolly or trailer. With the amusement park next door, we expected to hear lots of noise, but we didn't! There is a border of tall trees between the park and the amusement park that dampened almost all the noise and what we heard sounded distant. Easy access to the casino and convention center. Rated Satisfactory on service for three reasons: the attendant who greeted us was rather gruff in response to my query about senior or military discounts. ("We don't have to with the casino and amusement park next door.") There appeared to be no convenience store in the park itself, and internet service was awful. The attendant told me they hadn't upgraded the service in 6 years. I believe it; we regularly had difficulty getting online, often got bumped offline, and could not get a signal after 11:00 p.m. Fix the internet and provide a small convenience store and this would be a superior place to stay.

Our first impression was of a spacious park with very easy access from/to I-70 (the exit ramp continues directly into the park's road). Since the last review we'd read was two years old, we were looking forward to writing a favorable review and noting the improvements made. As promised, our space was reserved and instructions left for us on the door when we arrived Saturday afternoon (park office isn't open on weekends). When we got to our space, we found: no cap on the sewer dump (potential health hazard) that would be easy for a small child or dog catch a leg in, rotten wood deck (gaping holes) and picnic table with severely warped boards & nails/screws exposed, a short concrete pad (about 30') surrounded by dirt. Check the weather, both recent and for the duration of your stay. If it's been raining, you'll have to contend with a lot of sticky mud. The park is quiet and there is a large area to walk dogs, although it is not mowed, so watch out for ticks! The pull through spaces are narrow enough to prevent us from putting out our slide's awning because it would interfere with the coach next door. They only take credit cards and cash, no checks. This was not disclosed to us when we made our reservation. Comparing what we saw vs. the previous reviews, it appears that management has made minimal, if any, effort to improve the campground and fix previously noted problems.

Very clean park with good potential. Plantings indicate desire to improve appearance. Setting is not attractive (next to owner's storage units and a manufacturing plant) in an industrial park. Very clean & large grassy area for walking our dog. Our pull-through space, while not concrete, was level without having to extend our jacks. Very quiet; the few trains we heard became rather pleasant. On arrival, manager suggested we not drink water because it wasn't safe. WiFi not reliable. No cable TV, although we knew that. Managers changed; new manager had no record of our reservation, but they did have an open spot. This is primarily an extended stay park.

Pretty nice campground and nice staff. No dog park, but lots of room to walk the four-legged kids. Level pull-through space, quiet, pretty peaceful and relaxing. It appears to have some permanent residents, but park was still quiet and lived up to KOA standards. The road back to the park from the highway was a bit narrow, but not a white-knuckle exercise. We'd stay there again if we're in the area.

Spent a week here, not because we just like the park, but because it's the only one in town. Redeeming factor: they give a 50% FMCA membership discount; you can put up with a lot for $15 a night. Our first time staying there two years ago, we were awakened by roosters every morning - they're gone now, never to return and the park is pretty quiet. Park is heavily full-time residents, several of whom don't understand that their dogs need to be on a leash. Staff is real nice and the laundry facility is pretty good. Shady spots are given to the permanent residents. Parking spots are uneven in places and none are paved. The designated pet walking area takes you to the back of the park; we chose not to potentially run a gauntlet of unleashed dogs. Instead, we took our dogs down a dead-end street that runs in front of the park, just as we did last year. Park is very close to Thomasville's attractions and near a major 4-lane street. Like I said, you can put up with a lot for $15 a night and pleasant park management.

Pretty campground. Caters to boaters and fisherman using Lake Allatoona. Appear to be lots of permanent units for folks using the resort. We got in late, well after dark, so the security officer handled our booking. I've never had such a fast tour of an RV park in my life. I couldn't tell a thing about the sites we'd supposedly seen. Paved sites, but they're not all level. We drove to the site we were assigned, but it was nowhere near level. We just took another one that was close to level and set up, knowing we were leaving the next morning. Campground store was well-stocked. Park is several miles off the interstate, but it's a nice place to stay. Advise getting there during daylight so you can pick out a more level spot than we did. Back-in space, but it wasn't a problem.

Large park, but doesn't feel like it! Plenty of room between RV sites, plus it's in a wooded area, so the trees help set areas apart. There's ample space to walk dogs through the woods, so they get to enjoy new smells as we enjoy the trees. Owners were really pleasant and accommodating. Nice place to stop and relax after a long day's drive. We plan to stay there again whenever we're though that part of Illinois.

One of our two favorite overnight stops when heading southeast from Omaha. The owners are as nice a couple as you'd ever want to meet. It's close to the interstate, but not that loud. It's got some shady spots and a terrific store where they sell all kinds of bulk spices, Amish foods, jams, jellies, local handicrafts, and other neat stuff. There's a large area to let dogs run on long lines so they can burn off some energy.

There are some drawbacks to this park, but the pluses far outweigh any limitations. First, the drawback. It's basically an empty lot that's been converted to an RV Park, so there isn't much shade or scenery (hence the 8 instead of a higher grade). On the plus side, they've got a large dog park, level drive-through pads, and the most helpful husband and wife owners we've ever encountered. We got in late, yet they were there to meet us and escorted us to our site. The husband is mobility impaired, but that didn't stop him from driving his scooter out to our pad and lighting the utility area for us while we made the connections. His wife asked if we had all the supplies we needed for the evening, gave us precise directions to a couple of places we needed the next morning. When we checked out the next morning, a young couple was just leaving and I over heard them telling the owners how much they appreciated what they'd done for them over the past couple of months. The owners are just good folks and an absolute pleasure to deal with. We stay with them again without hesitation.

Date of Stay:

Very helpful and nice staff. Caters to hunters and fishermen, which seems to mean lots of late night arrivals and very early morning departures, so there's a bit of noise. Would stay there again if we're in the area. However, it's not near anything other than a lot of trees, so if you're looking for a town close by for evening entertainment, look elsewhere. It's adjacent to a county road that seems to double as the local Daytona 500 practice road and there is not a fence separating the park from the roadway (think safety hazard for kids and pets).

One of our favorite overnight spots. Set in the woods, very nice park manager who will go the extra mile to make sure your needs are met. Reasonable sized dog park, which is a major plus for us with large dogs. Quiet, peaceful, very relaxing.
