Stayed here for a weekend while visiting the Knoxville area. Booked a long pull thru site just across from pool and playground, site was perfectly level and had lots of space for toad. Pool area was great since it was a hot weekend. I have zero complaints about the park, it seemed new, was quiet and sites seemed to have nice spacing. Lots of seasonal campers which isn't a bad thing. It's a bit of a drive from Knoxville out to here, so plan accordingly if using Caney Creek as a base camp for Knoxville adventures.

Stayed for a few weeks with my family in this park while in the area for a medical emergency. We were in the A loop which has some sites with nice grass and spacing, while others barely allow an open awning without touching another site. I did notice some vagrants and late night activity here that made me a bit nervous. Bike path along the Red River was very nice and allowed for easy bicycle commutes to downtown. Overall Fargo the town was very surprising, some great places to eat and good shopping. Unfortunately this is the only game in town as far as campgrounds go, so if you need to stay in Fargo this is your best (and almost only) bet. Cell coverage and internet was good, no wifi available. Also no sewer sites, only W/E.

Really enjoyed our stay here while visiting the area. Be sure to book well in advance for summer stays, there are great sites near the beach. Lots of seasonal campers so the park gets very busy during the weekend, and the older section of the campground is tight, so be careful if selecting a site near the front. The beach area was fantastic, great playground, lots of grass and a sandy beach that had clear shallow water. Restaurant on site as well as boat rentals, marine gas, canoe rental, etc.... Lots to do without leaving the resort. We'll definitely come back to Stony Point but we'll book far in advance to get a great site and we'll stay longer.

This is a gigantic KOA with all the activities and amenities you could want (or want to avoid...). We stayed in site 184 which would have been great if there weren't a car trailer parked on the lawn of our site. It was just before July 4th so all sites were filled, but the park staff did a good job of having plenty of activities for kids and kept the trash picked up well. Roads are gravel but expect mud if it rains, we had a pretty big storm come through and destroy some awnings. Park has a big pool, separate water slide, on site everything and lots of staff. Close to Mt Rushmore and you can take a shuttle for nightly lighting ceremony.

One night stop while traveling east on I90. This park was easy to get to yet to from the interstate, yet just far enough off that I didn't notice highway noise all night. The pool made for a great treat after a long day of driving. Sites were gravel with nice grass and good shade trees throughout the park. We were near the playground which our kids enjoyed. Perfectly nice place to stop while traveling, we would not hesitate to go back.

Stayed for better part of 1 month at this park. Setting is nice & quiet, lots of trees between sites, very spacious overall. Pool area is great, my kids loved it. Used this as a base for commuting to work in Seattle area, and traffic proved to be quite a challenge as you have significant congestion in getting out to the Seattle Bellevue area from this park. Also, this park seems to be intermittently staffed, so most contact with management seems to be via returning messages as there is no office, email address, or Facebook account. There are also no sewer sites at this park. Lastly, there are a few 50amp sites, but ours proved to be problematic and we had to bump down to 30amp. Not a huge deal during the mild June in the Seattle area.

Stayed for one night on a great January weekend. Only upper pines was open in the valley and it filled up on Saturday. Absolutely cannot beat the location or scenery. We had a great time exploring the valley.

Stayed for one night over MLK Jr. weekend as part of a family trip to the Monterey area. Great location for visiting Monterey, Santa Cruz and state beaches in between. Park was exceptionally clean with the exception of the restrooms which needed attention in the mornings. Site had paver patio, table & chairs, fire pit benches & backed up to playground. Kids had a great time playing on playground, bouncy pillow and pool. Kudos to the park for allowing us late checkout free of charge on a day where they didn't expect a lot of arrivals. It made our day in the area much more relaxed. We'll definitely be back for more weekend adventures.

Giant park, but the tent section was virtually empty on a Friday night. Check-in staff was kind of surly and not very efficient. On a good note, the lack of campers made for a quiet night's sleep. Fine place for a quick stop over.

This was our 4th visit to Deception Pass. Stayed in site 193 which is steps from the amphitheater, West Beach, Cranberry Lake & the North beach trail. Site location was fantastic, close to the newer bathhouse, trails to the beach, etc... We keep finding new trails, fishing holes, and beach spots here. Navy planes were out on Thu and Fri before Labor Day but they didn't start flying until 8AM and seemed to be done at a reasonable hour. Love this park.

Quiet family-friendly resort on Orcas island. Convenient to Moran State Park. Whale watching tours depart from the resort dock daily, which was nice. Campground was fairly basic, campsites all had a nice carpet of grass and seemed fairly level. Water view sites looked fantastic but book far in advance. Restrooms and grounds were clean and staff was helpful. We'd definitely stay here again, hopefully for a few weeks one summer.

Visited this park for a mid-week two night stay the week before labor day. We stayed in water/electric sites near pool and that section of the campground was nearly empty. We could hear no other campers nor see any other campers from our site, making this a wonderfully relaxing time. The site itself was set among huge trees, the site had some grass and gravel, and the pad was perfectly level. Since it was so quiet we could hear the creek at night. Kids loved the pool, flat roads for biking, and playground. Great basecamp for exploring North Cascades NP. One critique: restrooms & showers near pool could have been cleaner.

Quick winter weekend stay while visiting Leavenworth for the Christmas lighting event. Campground was not crowded due to the season and the store/office had limited hours. Nice playground area for younger kids. For winter campers the rec room was a hit. We ate a few meals at the booths and spent time warming up and letting the kids color and play in the room. That definitely made the stay more tolerable since we were a family of 4 in a smaller camper.

Crater Lake is a fantastic place to visit and Mazama is an ok place to lay your head while you're in the park. The sites are large and color coded (just make sure you pay attention to that... I speak from experience as someone who had to move after unhooking). The camp store is nearby and well-stocked. This is not a campground I'd seek out as a destination, but I'll definitely be back the next time we visit Crater Lake. It's remote location and allowance of camp fires made for a happy wife, which made my life much easier...

This park is a few miles outside Sunriver and +- 20 minutes away from Bend. We were in a site near the front of the park which meant quick access to the pool, a playground and the store/lodge. All the amenities were nice. My kids particularly enjoyed the movie night and swimming pool. Nearby attractions include the Newberry Volcanic Monument and High Desert Museum, both of which were hits with the kids. My wife and I were disappointed by the burn ban, but that's what we get for camping east of the cascades during August. This park wasn't nice enough to convince me to join TT, but I'd go back and pay retail again.
