Campground is easy to find off Rt. 191, but signage from the south is misleading. There are two signs on the left of the road and the entrance is at the second sign. Grassy sites with a pavement walkway, picnic table and shade trees. No fire ring. We were in the back row and had minimal road noise. It's quiet, peaceful, a few miles from town, close to Arches, Canyonlands and ancient petroglyphs. Cable TV is great but Wi-Fi is intermittent. It's fine 'most' of the time but drops out throughout the day. We would definitely stay here again.

This campground is well organized for its size and is close to I-80. If you are in the back row, you will hear road noise. The price is with the Escapees 15% discount and is for 50 amp power, which was extra. Cable TV is an additional $2 and not worth it. Reception isn't clear and channels are limited. Wi-Fi is free but is unreliable and very slow if you get connected.

This is a beautiful camping spot, however it is rather confusing to make reservations online. There are 5 campgrounds, very few with full hookups. We couldn't get a full hookup online, only electric, so not sure if that can only be done once you arrive at the campground. It seems that the 'electric only' sites are available when searching sites online. When you get your site number, it is in a shorthand code, so be sure to print the map off their website so you know where to go. There is no legend for the code on their site but it's pretty straight forward. The directions on their site tell you that West Overlook Rd. goes to the park entrance. This is only true if your site is at this particular campground. There was nobody to help at this entrance's office. There was a sign that tells you to 'find your site' then come back to register or fill out paperwork there if nobody is in the office. Many campers don't understand that, especially if they made online reservations and paid online for their spot. We were lucky to find someone from the area that was camping in West Overlook and they led us to our site, which was clear across the other side of the dam. Later in the evening the park ranger came by and told us we had to go to the office to register so that we could get a tag to hang off the rear-view mirror in our car. Needless to say the check-in process was frustrating. That being said, it was a beautiful site (we were in Tailwater East) and campers here were there to enjoy nature. There were no motorized vehicles, other than cars. We would camp here again now that we know how it works.

The rate is the full cost, with taxes, and a Good Sam discount. It's a bit costly considering our site was near the office where the spaces are gravel and narrow. They are more spacious with grass towards the back but they are also closer to I-80. We were far enough away that we heard no road noise. They have a great Wi-Fi process where you login for two free hours at a time to allow for e-mail and normal web browsing. This prevents people from using it for high usage applications like watching online movies, playing online games, etc. It is a great policy and other campgrounds should do the same. Cable TV worked well and the laundry facilities were excellent. We would definitely stay here again.

We have been staying in campgrounds in the U.S. and Canada for the past month and this campground has been a pure pleasure. We stayed here for 5 nights while visiting family. Campgrounds in this area are few and far between so this was a lucky find. It is about 5 miles off I-90 and the last mile is a dirt road but not much of an issue for us. It is under new ownership the past two years and they have made great improvements. The grounds are spacious and well-maintained with plenty of room between sites. They have community activities within the park on a daily basis as there are many full-timers here. They drive around at night to enforce quiet hours if needed and are wonderful owners. There is free Wi-Fi near the office, otherwise it is a paid service for $2.50 a day. It was slow on the weekend when the park was full but the rest of the week it was great. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a nice campground if you want to stay off the beaten path. There is room between sites with grassy lots and cottonwood trees that were shedding profusely when we were there. There are many full-timers so it is quiet at night. We had a problem with our power at the site we were given. The manager was gone all afternoon and the person who was filling in for her moved us to a new site after two hours of trying to resolve the issue. He was very helpful but the manager was not very friendly. The Wi-Fi was unreliable and when we finally got connected it was very slow and the connection kept dropping out. Laundry facilities were great.

We chose this campground because it is close to Niagara Falls and will accommodate a larger rig. It is off the beaten path surrounded by vineyards and the campground is pretty with trees and grassy lots. The water pressure is really high and a regulator is needed, which we had. The owners were friendly and helpful. The first hour of wifi is free and then it is $2.50 a day and works great. There is also cable TV. The pool also looked great but we didn't use it.

We are rating this park highly because of the new 'adult' section that is beautiful and far enough away from the rest of the campground for a peaceful visit. The site had a concrete pad and a concrete patio with a wrought iron table and chairs. There is sufficient spacing between sites. Great wifi but no cable TV. It is rated at a 9 because of the cost. It was $76 per night with a KOA membership card and I feel that's too high.

This is a nice place to stay along Route 17 in Ontario, Canada if you have a big rig. There was plenty of space between sites, however, the road between the rows of sites was pretty narrow. If the park isn't full you can drive through the site in front of you without having to make a tight turn, otherwise it would be a challenge. It's right off the highway but quiet and there was good signage off the highway, driving from the west to find it. WiFi was good, no cable TV. No sewer hook-up at the site. They have a dump by the entrance but we didn't need it. We would stay here again but would ask for a site in the front row for easier access to get back out.

This campground is right on Lake Superior and we had a site with full hookups, but it wasn't very level. Our end was more organized but the other end of the park had sites that were hodge podge and people were crammed in there. Some of the sites were far from the water and needed extra long hookups. We stayed one night and the sunset was spectacular but feel it was a bit over-priced. It was on the highway but the noise quieted down in the evening.

This is a great campground with grassy sites on a beautiful lake. It was off the highway, so there was no road noise. There is good signage, which was great because the owner said that GPS will lead you astray. It was full of campers but there weren't very many people around. We were told that locals leave their campers at the park and come up on the weekend. This is a popular ATV area so we're glad we stayed here during the week when it was peaceful and quiet. Wi-Fi was sketchy but we were close enough to the office to get some reception; no cable TV.

This is an excellent park, however don't follow Mapquest, it takes you to the middle of farm country. It is close to I-94, quiet with well maintained grassy lots and is first-come, first-serve. There are some long term campers but still enough room for one-night stays. Payment is on an honor system with you putting money in an envelope and putting in a special lock box. The price is for full hookup with no cable or Wi-Fi.

Nice campground, shaded, and close to I-90 with no freeway noise. We were there on a weekend and many families were there. The quiet hours are from 11PM - 8 AM. Unfortunately, some parents allowed their small children to be out riding bikes until after 10 PM.

This park is right off of state highway 79 so it's convenient when traveling from the south. It is close to local attractions if you don't want to wind your way into the Black Hills campgrounds. The owners are friendly and accommodating. Although it is well kept, there are no trees for shade and you hear the noise from the highway,. It quiets down somewhat at night. They also charge an extra $5 for 50-amp power, which seems a little steep.

The gravel road to the sites needs work. It has pretty big holes. Our site was level and a nice size pull-through with our motorhome and toad. An earlier review said that it's getting a little trashy with a few full-timers and that's true but we were only staying one night. Wifi and cable worked fine. We didn't want to unhook our toad so were pleased to see we could walk to a few restaurants. It's close to a highway so there's a bit of noise from that and bright lights from businesses. The location was good for us and it was fine for one night.
