Date of Stay:

County park accepts only Wisconsin checks or cash which you deposit in a slot after choosing your site. Treed campground with lots of room between sites. Managed to peek at Dish satellite through tree branches. Large boat launch and pier with gravel swim beach. Green Bay was green when we were there so we didn't swim, but did kayak. Campground sits atop Niagara Escarpment for some interesting geology.

Date of Stay:

Campground is close to I-39 and I-80 with many pull through gravel sites. There were a lot of kids when we stayed overnight but campground was quiet at night. Sites are close together with mowed grass in between and room for a picnic table. Little to no shade for most of the pull throughs.

Date of Stay:

Gravel sites with many long term residents. Area was wet from flooding of the previous week. Convenient access to St. Louis with nice pool and on site BBQ restaurant.

Date of Stay:

Small sites mainly for tents or popups, only a few large enough for 36-ft motorhome. It was flooded during our visit and many waterfront sites were closed off. Fishing and boating on Beaver Lake are the main attractions. The access road to the campground is typical narrow, steep winding Ozark two-lane. Only two showers for each sex in main camping area.

Date of Stay:

Sites are gravel and close to your neighbor. The campground is located on a ridge so there was no worry about flooding when we were there during record rainfalls. The trolley stop at the campground with a six dollar two day pass worked out great as driving the narrow and, at the time of our visit, flooded streets wasn't very appealing.

Date of Stay:

Area was under flood-watch due to series of drenching rainstorms over many days. Because of this part of the campground near Turkey Creek was closed and grass mowing was impossible. The rest of the campground was in good condition and it is located right next to Branson for easy access to all the shows.

Date of Stay:

Large grassy shaded full-hookup sites. Friendly community with separate area for permanent and long time residents. Close to gulf beaches and Mobile Bay. A great place to stop for a few days when traveling along the Gulf Coast.

Date of Stay:

Nice rural area in Cajun Country near I-10 with grassy sites located around several large fish ponds. Fishing included with campsite rental. Clean well maintained pool with shade at one end. Cement pad parking .

Date of Stay:

Good location for visiting New Orleans. Small park with nice pool & hot tub.

Date of Stay:

Great small county park with boat ramp and docks on Talquin Lake. Water & electric on shady, graveled sites with many large trees. Several pull through sites on bank above lake but poor views due to brush growth. Good spot for a visit to the State Capital.

Date of Stay:

Electric 50 & 30amp, water & sewer at all sites. Two loops have some vegetation between sites for some privacy but the loop near the office was primarily grass. Roads are paved and in excellent condition. The sites are level gravel with fire rings on ground and separate grills on pedestal and include a clothes line at back of each site. The pool was empty and in need of repair when we were there in May, but the big attraction is the Rainbow river with a canoe/kayak /tube launch area and a separate swim area. The river is crystal clear and emanates from the headspring which is approx. one mile from the campground. Large numbers of tubers ride the 4 mph river downstream to Dunnellon on weekends during the season. Campers have free access to the headsprings area which includes picnicking, swimming, canoe/kayak rentals and a tour of the extensive gardens.

Campground is poorly designed if there was any design when it was built. It is essentially a swampy patch on the south shore of Oneida Lake in a county park. The camp roads are potholed gravel with gravel parking spots for RVs and are the only parts of the campground that aren't underwater during heavy rainstorms. The showers for campers only are located several hundred yards away at the public beach changing rooms. The beach itself was closed most of our two week stay because of blue/green algae and later due to E coli. The only redeeming features are the large boat launch area which draws a lot of fishermen, nearness to I-81 for overnighters and it's proximity to Syracuse. We would not stay here if it wasn't to visit friends and relatives in the Syracuse area.

Date of Stay:

Paved interior roads with open grass campsites. Limited shade and sites are mostly in an open field. Geese have taken over the lake front making walking hazardous if you don't watch your step. Lake is shallow and heavily silted, but OK for kayaking. Park gets regular local use for picnics etc. Close to I-86/ Rt.17 for an overnight stop. Lack of water at sites and poor area roads means we probably won't be back.

Date of Stay:

Rate is for U.S. Senior Pass. Paved roads and each site has paved parking with a graveled area for picnic tables, tents and fire rings. Quiet area on COE lake. Lots of fishing and kayaking. Swimming beach is shallow with sand beach good for kids. Rest rooms and showers were well built but not too well maintained recently. Men's shower had no curtains so everything in vicinity got wet. Local roads poor for cycling with no shoulders, broken pavement and 55 MPH speed limit.

Date of Stay:

Campground is located in a town park that has a lot of local use i.e. picnickers, school outings, dog walkers, joggers, soccer & baseball games, summer concerts, car shows etc. Paved roads with lots of lawn and some shaded sites. Great location on the Susquehanna river near the touristy village of Owego. We were here for the annual Strawberry Festival the third weekend in June which draws upwards of 30,000 people to this small village for lots of live music, strawberry shortcake, wine tasting,fireworks, many food vendors and a general good time. A note of caution to people considering a long term stay is a monthly rate is for 28 days. We would definitely stay here again.
