Very nice campground. The owners were very nice and helpful. It was easy in and easy out. The spaces were adequate. The only downside was the Internet, which was not really there.

Date of Stay:

New owners and super friendly. Very helpful with information about drives in and around Rushmore. Campsite was grass and luckily ours was level. Some of the others didn't look so good. That said, the owner was right there helping us level out.

Date of Stay:

Great park, but the spaces are really close together. Still everyone was quiet and respectful. The bath house was clean but the men's side, at least, smelled like sewer. Ask the older lady at registration about her dogs! This park was an old biplane airport and is right next to the fairgrounds. Some sites are not particularly level, but they aren't too bad.

Only gave this park a 9 because they charged us extra for the kids. Not sure why places do this; it's not like they take up more room, and our kids are older. Be aware that if you stay here in October you will experience raining acorns because the park is filled with oak trees. The owners share their eggs and fresh vegetables in season. Also note that the shower attached to the registration building is the one to use. The other bath house is older and the showers are timed.

Absolutely a great park with great owners. The WiFi cannot be beat. The shower house is older, but the showers have been maintained and the room is very clean. Highly recommend this park.

Great park. Two issues of which to be aware. First, the roads are rough due to buckled blacktop; however, they are passable. Second, make certain that you have a water pressure regulator. The campground has extremely high water pressure and for an older travel trailer it is too high. We blew off our toilet hose the first flush! Other than those things it is well cared for and the staff are wonderful.

This is a great park! There are no sewer hookups, but aside from that it was quiet, there is a museum on site, the history of the area is great, and 25 minutes from Cinci. I only gave it a "9" because of the "state park" bathrooms that nearly always have bugs and are a bit well-used. But, having camped all over, one gets used to those. The kids got to go look at an onsite Bison herd and the trails are fun to walk.

Very nice and very quiet park. Extremely close to Louisville and in the "shopping district" so very close (5 min) to many varied eating and shopping establishments. However, despite the "we're glad you're here" sign welcoming us, there were "don't do this" and "don't do that" signs throughout the park. It is as if every time someone did something the owners didn't like, they put up a sign for it. We were charged $5 extra for each of the kids, even though one of them is 15 and one is 12 and neither of them are likely to damage anything. We are a nice quiet family so the stay was great. The woman that made our reservations was curt on the phone, but actually very nice in person. This park is great if you are quiet travelers.

Very good park for an overnight stay. They had just finished a festival on the site, so there was a great deal of cleanup going on, but in spite of that it was very quiet. Seems fairly new. The only issue was that there were a number of "drive through" gawkers that ignored the "campers only" signs and just showed up driving around the park. They need to close off the section for camping to keep people from off the main road from just wandering in. The showers were very clean, though the water wasn't particularly warm.

Very nice person who took reservations and was very accommodating. Really liked the spot, it was level and the hookups were convenient.

Nice host, his campground since 1967. On Historic Route 66 near the town of Shamrock where the Conoco from the movie "Cars" is located. Short drive off the interstate to arrive. The pull throughs were updated and it is a good overnight spot. However, be prepared that the interstate noise is everpresent and the playground equipment is dated, but functional. There are several full-timers there but were no bother.

Date of Stay:

The host was good, but the park was in need of updating. The playground equipment was falling apart, the showers either don't work or there was some special trick to getting them to work. The pool and hot tub were nice additions and seemed new. We had a sewer vent stack right next to our site which vented sewer gases some times, so having our windows open was not an option. The store has a nice selection of food and they cook and deliver the food to the trailers. We didn't use the service, but a number of the other campers did.

This park was excellent. The young lady that acted as host was wonderful as well. We called early in the day and she didn't have anything available, but called us back later and told us she had something open up. The showers were exceptional and the bathroom was also very good. The only reason that I'm not rating it a 10 is that the WiFi didn't work well, very slow connection, in spite of having many repeaters relaying the signal. Finally, great views of sunsets over the mountains and very well maintained.

This RV park overlooks the Great Sand Dunes and the view in the morning is incredible as the sun comes up on the mountains. If you've traveled a ways, it also has fuel and propane, which was a welcome sight for us. It was just a mile from the Great Sand Dunes. WiFi didn't work for us, but I'm starting to think from this trip that you should bring your cell Hotspot with you anytime you travel in RV parks. The host was very friendly and funny!

My recommendation here is to call ahead and be really friendly with the staff. We called ahead and got a spot for three nights, looking right across the valley at Pike's Peak. Absolutely stunning views. Pronghorn deer were everywhere, rabbits in the park. The only reason I didn't rate it a 10 is that the WiFi didn't work for us. I assume it was because we were at the far end of the park. That doesn't matter for us as we use our Verizon Hotspot. Laundry facilities were good, dryers were a little slow.
