About DiplomatTraveler

We travel in a 2006 Monaco Diplomat 40PDQ with four slides and tow a Jeep Grand Cherokee; overall length about 60'. It is important to have a safe place to spend the night; it's okay if the park is old and a bit worn out. We're more concerned about trees overgrowing the site. We're not looking for frills and we don't need someone planning every hour of our day. Our rig is our home; we use our own bathroom! Why go to the neighbors?

This is a very nice campground located 4 miles south of town. Sites are all back-in; some more level than others. Lots of trees and plenty of grass with newer looking picnic tables. Campground is clean and appears well-maintained. All utilities are located at the back of the site. Owners are not always on site, so make reservations or contact the park if you are planning on staying.

This is a manufactured home park that has a few RV sites; you'll need to be self-contained. It is a good place to base your stay when visiting the Cleveland area. Manager was friendly over the phone and had an envelope waiting for us on the front door when we arrived. The office is not always open as previously noted. You place your money in the envelope and drop it in the rent box. Our site #7 was paved, long, spacious, and utilities were easily accessible.

This city campground can get pretty busy on the weekends according to the locals we talked to so you'll want to get reservations. There is only one site with full-hookups - the VIP site. Other sites have water and electricity or just electricity. There is a dump site. Camp sites are a mix of gravel and grass; mostly level. There is a children's playground at the entrance to the park and a pool and water park close by. The town's ball fields are also located in this park complex.

This is a nice park located a few miles out of the city; but not worth the $50/night price tag. We were visiting friends and chose the location as it was near to their home. Several sites are paved, others gravel. All appeared to be level. The park is clean and has swimming pools and lots of activities for families. This is one of the better places to stay if visiting the area. We were not bothered by the trains; didn't hear anything during the night.

We used this campground as our base while attending the West Bend Geocaching Bash. It is an older campground with some sites more level than others, and some with more maneuverability than others. Sites are a mix of gravel and grass and can be narrow or roomy. It really is a toss up! The beach is a local favorite and you'll find a lot of families using the area during summer days. We didn't mind the rules; figure they have to do this to maintain the park as well as they do. Owner let us trim the branches that were hitting the top of our motorhome which we appreciated. Rate reflects a weekly rate. Electricity was extra (for us about $21 for the week).

Rate reflects Passport America. A nice location on West Twin River, this older campground is clean, quiet, well-maintained, and a pleasant place to stay. Sites are level and gravel with some grass. Utilities were easily accessible; 30 amp only. Best to enter the park on 25th Street, off 147/Forest Road. Coming in from others streets makes for a tight turn into the entrance.

Park is very clean and appears to be well-managed. We were only passing through so ended up staying on the upper level of the campground. Campsites are narrow. Roads were difficult to maneuver with our 40' MH. Manager had to have other campers move their vehicles so we could get around the corners. Park is full of seasonal rigs.

This small park is located near the city's ballparks; however, you need to check in at the ESSO Westend Convenience Store on 3rd before going to the park. There is plenty of parking along the frontage road so you register at the store. The campground is gravel and very clean. There are two sites in each open space; a buffer of trees separates each set. There is plenty of room between the two adjoining sites; you'll pull through from opposite directions. We didn't check out the facilities as we use our own. The local library has placed a rubber tub full of books that is used as a book exchange. Sign at the campground listed cost in Canadian dollars as $20 basic, $25 electric, $30 full hookups. Electric is 30 amp.

This RV sites in this park sit back off the highway so it is very quiet. They are pull-though, mostly grass, level, and there is a buffer of trees between most spaces. Sites are big rig friendly, especially 40' and shorter; 45' should take off their tow vehicle before trying to park. Rate is with Good Sam discount and $5 additional per night for 50 amp. Remember, rates will vary due to exchange rate. There is a book exchange in the office/store area.

This is a completely awesome park. The owners have put so much effort into making this a welcoming place. You can take a walk in the woods, take a swim, sit along the sandy lake shore, play a game of basketball or volleyball, or just sit quietly at your site. Sites 1-5 are very big rig friendly. They are 100' long, pull-through, and paved. Other sites are nestled in the trees and work well for shorter rigs or tents. Wi-Fi worked very well. There is a well maintained gravel road coming off the highway into the park, but it is only about 1 km. The entrance to the park and all park roads are paved.

We used this park as our base to explore Winnipeg. The campground is quite large and has what appears to be two sections. The older one has shaded, grassy sites under the trees, and is used by many as a seasonal base. The newer section is more open, big rig friendly, and has long pull-throughs. There is a playground, mini-golf, basketball and volleyball courts, and a shuffleboard area. The office area has a small store with food and RV supplies, a used book sale or exchange 1-1 of equal value, and there are billiard tables and video game machines.

This park is located on Pelican Lake and is used by many as a seasonal base. The park is clean, sites are level, and mostly gravel/grass. There has been a lot of rain recently, so some of the sites were still wet/muddy. Rate for the park was $26CN, but they charged us $20US since we hadn't changed out to Canadian money at the time. Price included 30 amp and water; no sewer. It served us well for one night.

This simple campground is off the beaten path, but it is a gem. I don't know if we've ever been the only ones in a campground, but we had that experience here. The sites are grass, level, and the park is very well maintained and managed. The museums are wonderful to wander through. The restrooms are clean but rustic. The museum holds their annual event in June each year. There is a sewer dump and fresh water available; 30 amp only at the site. Plenty of room for all sizes of rigs and tents. The manager is looking for volunteers/work campers. If you are interested, he can use the help with maintaining the grounds, collections, and campground. Contact the park.

This simple campground is showing its age, but it is clean; we didn't see the garbage that the last reviewer reported. Yes, the sites are close together and the shared area between rigs is limited. There is a restaurant on site, but we didn't use it. Sites are dirt/gravel, level, and long enough for motorhome and tow. Frontier Village with the World's Largest Buffalo is within walking distance; lots of fun shops and old buildings to explore as well. The park served us well for an overnight stop.

Rate is for Passport America and we paid an additional $4 for 50 amp service. The park sits behind a Super 8 Motel just off I-90. The roads and sites are gravel. Site 303 was level and long enough for our 40' motorhome with tow behind. The office has a book exchange, a few snacks, visitor information, and ice. Train tracks are behind the park, but we didn't notice them until later in the evening.
