Its all about the location if you want to be in the action. It was fun seeing the marina activity. Our 42' motorhome squeezed into a full hookup with a limited waterview. Last night we moved to elec/water site which has a much nicer view facing town and water. Be prepared to face traffic when leaving marina for day trips. You have to drive in and out of a congested tourist area. Even coming in with the coach was a bit daunting with a few tight turns through the shopping/dining district. We really enjoyed the Duluth area, golf and a few good restaurant meals. We never got their WIFI going and didn't bother with owners to try so not sure about that. We had our satellite and mifi. Limited doggie areas in the marina but again, it was fun to be on the water.

We had a 50 amp full hook up back in at the entrance to the camp. We could use our satellite even though we had trees around us. Good walking areas for the dogs and a nice view of cornfields and I-35 in the distance from our front window. Site was tight but we don't sit outside so it was perfect for a few nights stopover. Enjoyed golf at Jewell Golf Club and found a good farmstand behind Story City.

Echo recent reviews..great campground. Nice, helpful camphosts, grounds well maintained with good areas for the dogs. Very convenient for visiting downtown Minneapolis yet removed from the city congestion. Good shopping nearby and great golf at Valleywood Golf Course. I was concerned about the entry road and our 42' rig but we never encountered another rig entering or leaving. It would be tricky but not impossible to work out if it happened. We are returning there again for a weekend. You definitely should have reservations for weekends, it gets busy. Our first visit to this area and the city is marvelous!

We are self contained so didn't use facilities. Good WIFI as we were in a pull through near the office. Site is comfortable, no trees but nice open view of farm fields and great, long walking area for dogs. Mostly seasonal campers but park is quiet and very well maintained by on-site owners. We brought our 42' Tour for factory service but preferred this park to staying at the factory hook ups. A few short miles to town. Nice outside sitting area with new picnic tables and fire rings.

We used this as a stopover to visit Newmar and do their tour. Its a rally field but hookups were fine. Lots of seasonals in another park that had real sites and trees. This was OK for our purposes but did have mosquitos at night and grass is messy when cut and wet. I would not recommend for a vacation unless you could get a real site. Wi-Fi was fine and they have a snack bar at the office where I had a huge ice cream!

Country setting, mostly local families with children. Lots of seasonal campers. Gravel roads and uneven sites. We had a pretty good back-in with a soybean field behind us. OK area for the dogs but lots of mosquitos down near the water. They didn't bother us too much where we were parked. This was just a pass through stop for a few nights while traveling. We did enjoy a few rounds of golf in the area. Wi-Fi and hook ups were fine.

We had a great space near the greenway, I think #52. We were able to get satellite in spite of all the trees, we just pulled forward in our space. They are close together but the convenient location makes up for it. Our front windshield looked out to beautiful marshes behind the greenway trail. The grass was lush and abundant for the dogs, they were ecstatic! We had a few mosquitos at night. The town is sweet, Saturday farmers market was wonderful. Right next to a good supermarket, ice cream parlour and coffee shops. Really enjoyed a few days here and plenty of water activities and golf nearby. I recommend this park if you can get a site near the front of the park. Mostly seasonal rigs in the back and interior. Seems to be very well run.

Still a very new park. Will accommodate any size rig but all back-in spaces. Nice wide sites. Downside for me was lack of landscaping. A few new trees but that's it. Dogs weren't excited to be here. They are working around to add improvements but I don't know when it will be done. It is a great location to see this area and Frankfort is an appealing place to visit. We enjoyed golf at the local golf course.

We have a new 42' Winnebago Tour and I was worried about getting in a tight campground. This is the best we found for big rigs. It's right off 421 a few miles north of Boone. Very easy to get into our site #10 which is grass with a gravel base. Full hook up, 50 amp and our windshield view the cow pasture across the street...a gorgeous pastoral setting in all directions. There is a tiny bit of road noise but doesn't bother us. We are fully self contained with our own Directv so we haven't used the facilities but the grounds are lovely. Well mowed, lots of flowers and trees, etc. Its a great base for Boone and close enough to all the activities offered in this area. Our dogs love it. This is a quiet park. We will return.

Great Park! New, well laid out...lots of big rigs. We have a back in space with a greenway behind us and nice space between RVs. Concrete pads, picnic tables, small shade tree and view of the stream to the side. The dogs love it. Nice dog park but its a bit remote from camp so not suitable for my old dog but there is so much lawn around it doesn't matter. There's plenty to see and do in this area. Its an easy off and on on I-10 but you will want to do more than overnight once you get here...as we did.

Great location but didn't get a good vibe in this park. Seemed too impersonal, big clubhouse we never went to. Sites are gravel and rather close together with minimal landscaping. OK for walking dogs. We got satellite and Wi-Fi was OK. Seemed a bit ragged around the edges. I wouldn't stay there again unless i had to. It did have very good access to Ilwaco, which was a great port for walking, dining, Saturday market and Lewis & Clark sites.

I didn't like this park because it seemed very jammed up with park models and just depressing. Our site was so tight we could hardly get slides out. It's right on the beach so if you get one of the few ocean front sites, you'd have a much better experience. The access to the beach is great but it was very cool and windy when we were there so minimal beach time for us. I saw other parks in the area that would've been preferable. Our space was way overpriced for what they offered. Would stay elsewhere.

I guess it depends on where they put you as this is a spread out park with 4-5 different sections, some of which are close to RR tracks. We got a wonderful site near the pond. I think our space is great with plenty of nice dog walking areas. Grass is everywhere so other reviewer must have been stuck in a remote corner. We're in a 38' RV, so never use bath or laundry. Good satellite access, good Wi-Fi reception, and the location is perfect for us. Easy drive into Portland, yet out of the hub. Walmart is down the street. Portland is a fab town for foodies...we'll be back.

Attractive park and lots of nature around but very convenient to shopping and Seattle. Good for pets, lots of walking areas. Pet enclosure should be larger with a bench for pet owners inside. We would stay there again.

This park has wifi. its the best choice for the price in Bend. Convenient location. Some spaces allow for roof top sat. #330, ask when you call. Manager very nice. OK for pets, grassy walk areas, but no park. Bend has fantastic off leash dog parks in various locations, worth a visit!! Not a resort park but handy for visiting this great city.
