Very nice military RV park! Spacious sites with all paved roads & mostly level paved sites with grass between each site. Some sites had standing water during rains. Sites were spaced 30-40 feet apart and long enough for the biggest rigs. Laundry was small but adequate, but they have 2 laundries too. Each site had FHU plus a table and BBQ grill. No fires or fire rings allowed, but they had a very nice playground. No cable TV or wifi, but it looked like all sites would be good for satellite reception. Both Verizon & ATT had weak 1-bar signals. There was occasional train noise but I didn't notice any trains at night. Roads on post are pretty messed up with construction so follow directions on www.militarycampgrounds.us. Definitely get reservations as the park stays full.

This park has six 50A FHU pull through sites near Highway 6 and the rest are 30A W/E back-in sites nestled in the woods. The pull through sites are well spaced and most are good for satellite. Highway noise calms at night. The wooded sites vary quite a bit from long level back-ins overlooking the lake to sites at the top of inclines. The park has few rules, which appeals to some. You might see 6 cars and 5 tents clustered around one site as we did during Spring Break. Families were having a great time. The grass was getting long which previous reviewers have noted as a problem. I saw a clean up crew come to each site after it was vacated to sweep and clean the pits. Big Rigs should stay in the pull thrus although some of the back-ins would be Big Rig suitable too. You can choose your site online. ATT & Verizon had strong signals.

We've stayed here a couple of times in the past. Rate reflects the $555 monthly rate (which goes up soon to $595+elec). Monthly rates have increased with no visible improvements to the park. The north end offers more space and level lots, but sites cost more. The south end is more picturesque but sites are generally closer together and less level. They need to repave over potholes. I'd estimate about a third of the park is short term campers with the rest on monthly stays. People were friendly. WiFi is crappy Tengonet and not free for monthly users. Both ATT & Verizon have strong signals. Overall, this is a great location and a very good RV park.

Great little park for a stopover. Everything's paved and level. Sites are adequately spaced and suitable for big rigs. Park Wi-Fi worked well. Both AT&T & Verizon had strong signals.

We spent a week here. This is a "must visit" park to watch the barges. The park is well maintained and has the only free laundry we've ever encountered. There's about a hundred yards of very bumpy road getting to the entrance. Park Wi-Fi worked well for me (external antenna) and both Verizon & AT&T had strong signals.

This is an okay campground for an overnight. One row of pull-throughs is well spaced but the other row is more tightly packed. The interior road between the pull-throughs is a little narrow, which can make it a challenge to get into a site depending upon how RVs/autos are parked. Wi-Fi worked well for my external antenna and both AT&T and Verizon had good signals.

This is a very nice park with a couple of minor quirks. Sites are nicely spaced, easy in/out with both concrete and gravel level pull-throughs and back-ins. Many sites are satellite friendly. Two quirks. Their rules hit me as a little on the overbearing side, especially concerning visitors and late check out. And they almost make you take an oath not to use your own Wi-Fi in the park as they believe it interferes with the park Wi-Fi (very unlikely). Well, the park Wi-Fi was very weak so you don't really have a choice. Both Verizon and AT&T had good signals.

This is an excellent place to bring families for summer fun! They have tons of activities, way too many to list. Many activities are free while they rent equipment for others. From Memorial Day to Labor Day, they have camp-led activities for kids too. The park was very quiet and almost empty in mid-September. Paved level sites are very well spaced and suitable for big rigs. The park is open to the public. Verizon Wi-Fi worked well but AT&T barely had a signal. Some sites are satellite suitable. The laundry is woefully undersized with only 2 washers/2 dryers. Previous reviews are still valid except they no longer ask for social security numbers. Review their web site for directions and more info.

This is a pretty typical small KOA--expensive for what you get. They cram too many sites in the space available. If they would remove every other site, it would be fine. They have sites that are long enough to fit big rigs but only 3 sites are 50 amp full hookups, so call ahead if you need that. Sites were gravel and level. Wi-Fi worked well. Generally, it is easy in/easy out; however, a couple of limbs needed trimming and one telephone pole could pose a problem if you take the wrong path out of the park. AT&T had a weak signal and Verizon had a strong signal. The trains were pretty frequent during the day, thankfully less so at night. We'll probably stay somewhere else next time.

I concur with the previous reviewer but I wanted to add a couple of things. The vast majority of sites are back-in. I'd say most are pretty easy access but choose your site carefully if you have a bigger rig. This is more a park for camping than RVing and there is a difference, e.g. the lack of water at many sites. Good ATT & Verizon coverage.

Very nice little FamCamp! They don't take reservations but the park was only half full the month we stayed there. They have 20 RV sites with hook-ups which are well spaced and very easy to back in. Hook-ups are a little odd on some sites as the power pedestal is a good 20 feet behind the back of your RV and the sewer connection is on the wrong side. All sites are 50 amp with free cable TV, although the cable wasn't working on some sites. Some sites have shade. Ample parking and space for any size rig. Follow directions on the web page to avoid the not-RV-friendly main gate. Small pay laundry worked just fine. Free Wi-Fi only worked near the laundry. It's 15 miles to Grand Forks if you need something beyond the BX & Commissary. Both Verizon and AT&T had good signals. We'll stay here again!

This is an acceptable RV park depending upon your expectations & rig. The park is close to the national park and has a popular restaurant, pool, car wash, live music on weekends, putt-putt, and laundry. But I think the park focuses more on the restaurant & other enterprises than the RV business. Pulling in the busy parking lot, you have no clue where to park your rig to check in. At the check-in desk, the lady was more busy taking pizza orders than attending to my RV. Then there’s a tree that literally blocks the north entrance with small limbs that hang to 5 feet off the ground. I asked for them to trim that tree…48 hours later nothing had happened. There is a south entrance that is tree-free if you are small enough to wind through the tight aisles. When you first enter, you don’t know about your options and the led me right to that treed north entrance. My spot was an 80’ long back-in, level, grassy, and satellite friendly on the north end. Hookups were at the rear and uphill making the sewer connection dicey. The south end of the park would only be suitable for small trailers as they park literally inches apart in short sites with cars partially blocking the roads. I saw slides open to within 6 inches of neighboring RVs on the south side. This park is suitable, even for bigger rigs, as long as you get a north side spot and they trim that tree at the north entrance. On the plus side, the park is very family friendly. We were there over a holiday weekend and the park was full. Free wifi only works in the restaurant. Rogers cell coverage was good.

Lovely RV park right off of Highway 16. Road noise during the day calmed quite a bit at night. Park is nicely landscaped with lots of young trees and green grass in July. Interior roads & sites are gravel and easy in/out. My site was about 70 feet long, level, satellite friendly, and partially shaded. They have several wifi transmitters and it worked well for me. Check-in is self-serve at the cash-only kiosk. I never saw an attendant although I'm sure they were nearby. Seasonals fill most of the park so get a reservation. No playgrounds or things for kids to do. Rogers had a good cell signal. We'd stay here again.

Beautiful stopover on the Saskatchewan River and outskirts of Edmonton AB. There are a lot of seasonal campers but they were friendly and not too junky. Our site was a long back in but it wasn't very level. They have a variety of sites in the park from a few very long pull-throughs to grassy back-ins. Ample open grass space for kids to play and multiple playgrounds. Satellite access is iffy with the trees as most sites are shaded. Rogers cell phone coverage was weak. Park Wi-Fi only worked if I was close to the office.

We thought this was a great place to camp for a week! Some earlier reviews complain about the parking layout but we liked it. Wide paved roads run down the aisles with RVs staggered well apart on either side. You can choose a full site (for larger RVs) or take a shared site where 2 smaller RVs pull into one site. Plan ahead with early reservations. Satellite access is iffy with all the trees and there's no wifi. We only found one place in town with free wifi--a small coffee shop. Rogers cell phone coverage was good. Only laundry mat we found was in town. We'll stay here again.
