Jantzen Beach RV Park, Portland, Oregon

Date of Stay: December, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

For being in a bigger city, I was happy with the price here. Based on reviews, this park seemed like the better choice and we're happy we stayed here (4 nights). Staff was very pleasant on the phone and at check-in. Made reservation 2-3 weeks before we wanted to arrive and there were still a few empty sites while we were there. This park seems huge, with many long-term folks. Some sites had quite a bit of stuff piled up, but nothing too run-down looking. We locked everything up at night, but never really felt concerned. Some of the turns in the park seemed a bit tight, but just go slow, you'll be fine. We exited out past the office (going back the way we originally came in) instead of going the 'normal' exit route as that exit route would mean a short, tight right turn to the 4-way stop where you'd then make a left to head off the island. Our site was two smaller sites combined to make one longer pull-thru so it was slightly V-ed. Had to work around decorative fence near hookups on both sides of site. Put 40' fifth wheel at very back of site and was able to put out all slides just fine. Parked truck and SUV in front end of the site next to each other. Plenty of space for motorcycles and trailer too. Sewer hookup then was a stretch, about 20+ feet. Paved site! Hookups worked as desired. We even had three picnic tables at our site! One had dog poop on it the whole time. Our favorite aspect of this park - wash your RV for free!! They have recycle bins by the trash dumpsters. AT&T LTE multiple bars. Wifi worked well. Some trees around and grass in-between the sites. Not slide-to-slide with your neighbor, just kinda close, not bad. Landscaping crew speeds around park on golf carts. Chevron gas station on the island had diesel too. Yep, there's airplanes flying overhead. Noisy, but also kind of neat! Don't remember hearing them at night. Also, never heard a train whistle. Wish we would have had time to find the walking path down to the river. We camped at Jantzen Beach RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Meadowlark RV Park, Creswell, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

We drove around this park and two others in the Eugene area. We didn't want to pay the higher prices at the other parks and this place was just fine. Staff was super nice; allowed us to change our reservation dates after we'd made them. We stayed 4 nights in site 42. Convenient location to Eugene; gas station right across the street. Good price on beer in their camp store. They fill propane. Okay to receive a package here. Manager said it was $50 if we wanted to wash RV on-site (because city water is so expensive). Wifi worked fine for surfing; we had multiple bars AT&T LTE here so we used that for streaming. Bustling park; seems most are residents/long-term that come and go from work. Sites were kept up, not a whole lot of stuff sitting around the RVs. Transient sites are in the long, middle row north of the office if you're looking at the park on Google Earth. Site 42 was one of their longest, probably 70'. It was very nice to be able to easily fit all of our stuff on one site (40' fiver, truck, motorcycles, trailer, SUV). Gravel pull thru. Hookups worked as desired. Included cable (but could never find the Fox station) so switched to over-the-air channels and that was much better. Hefty picnic table. Interstate noise wasn't noticeable once inside RV. Easy to pull in and pull out. Weren't slide-to-slide with our neighbor, probably 5-7 strides in-between. Site 42 was nice as it was near a utility shed/area so there was even more room on drivers side. They fill up during UofOregon football home games, but otherwise it seemed there were multiple transient sites available. There's not a lot of "fluff" here like lots of landscaping, snazzy pool, etc but it has what you need, in a convenient location, with nice people, for a decent price. We camped at Meadowlark RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Seal Rocks RV Cove, Seal Rock, Oregon

Date of Stay: November, 2017 - $16.00
Overall Rating:

It's so easy to fall in love with this place. Looking for a campground that gives you ocean views, a natural feel, and a non-parking-lot-like site? This is it. Don't want to be charged for amenities you'd never use even if they had 'em? This is it. Submitted a reservation inquiry online one night; received an email reply and phone call the next day. Originally reserved for two weeks. Was going to go to Eugene but after seeing the RV parks there, realized Seal Rocks was way better park for way better price so ended up staying another two weeks. Staff and management were very nice; often out-and-about even in the rain maintaining and improving the park. No two RV sites are the same here. May seem difficult to back-in to some sites, but just ask the staff for the best approach, take your time, and it'll be fine. If you have windows on drivers side, you'll see the ocean from sites 2, 3, 4. Site 2 is crazy long and fit our 40' fifth wheel, cycle trailer, motorcycles, truck and SUV lined up in a row. Site 4 is much shorter but fit our 40' and we parked our SUV perpendicular in front of it (truck & trailer went into overflow parking). Both sites were level, nice firepit and picnic table. Gravel under/around the RV and the rest of the site is grass. Got a bit mushy as it rained nearly everyday, but they allowed us to put our rug out. Be cautious, it can get very windy. New, bigger fenced-in dog area is in the works. Wifi worked well for surfing and streaming. Also had cable TV! Passport America discount offered for a whole week - amazing! Trees and natural shrubs/bushes all around, along with wildlife. Walk to the beach is very easy (plus there are benches) and we found more tidepool creatures here than in other areas. Be sure to go down at low and high tides to see the difference. Best views and one of the best values we've found in our travels. Aug 2018 was filling up back in Nov 2017 so reserve early for summer. Park was mostly empty in Nov, except for Thanksgiving. We camped at Seal Rocks RV Cove in a Fifth Wheel.

Scandia RV & Mobile Park, Bend, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $43.00
Overall Rating:

We wanted to be in-town and this place was more reasonably priced than the other park. Very convenient location. Sometimes it was hard to turn out of the park onto the main road because of traffic. The more-mature couple working in the office were really nice; they allowed us to receive a package and even delivered it to our RV. The younger gentleman working in the office was less personable. I would give this park a higher rating if he would have provided better accommodation for our large setup of 40' 5er, dually truck, SUV, 7x5 trailer, two motorcycles (which we described when making reservation). We pulled into site 317 and realized quickly we couldn't even fit the 5er and truck once disconnected (and no parking on grass). 316 right next to us was super long, so I asked if it would be okay if we switched. Guy said no, it was reserved for a couple of the nights we would be there. Three nights there were RVs in that site that were half of what we were. Would it have been difficult to switch those shorter rigs just staying one night to a site that would still easily fit them...? We had to put our 5er at the very back of the site so we could park our small SUV in front. Needed 20+ ft of sewer hose. "Overflow parking" area was laughable; might fit a small sedan but there was no way to even get our dually truck in that small gravel pad in-between a fence and fire hydrant. Luckily, the Wendy's next door allowed us to park in their lot. Seems like park is probably 80% long-term. Transient sites are on the south end. Site closeness varies; neighbors' slides were 3 ft from ours. Asphalt site pad bit uneven; needed a few boards to level. Laundry room was clean. Wifi was never strong enough to open a website. Landscape company next door starts up machinery at 8am each weekday. One-lane interior roads have dips/uneven due to tree roots. Tight, blind corner around restroom bldg. Nice trees around to make you feel like you're not 'in-town'. We'd stay again. We camped at Scandia RV & Mobile Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Crown Point RV Park, Corbett, Oregon

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

The family managing this park provides top notch customer service and that's why I'm rating so high. This was hands-down our best experience communicating with RV park staff. She returned voicemails as soon as possible. We checked in after office hours, but the daughters came up to greet us and got us in the right spot. Welcome packet was taped to our electrical box and included a hand-written note and some goodies. Husband brought our package that had been delivered that day to us even though it was after their office-hours. When we paid the next morning, she provided us a number of good suggestions of things to do. Stayed two nights; wish it could have been longer. Sounds like it can be hard to get a site here as 70% are long-term. Park is smaller, quiet, and well kept. We were in site 16 which was next to the fence by the exit. Plenty of space for our 40' fifth wheel and truck. There was a nice big grassy area between us and the next site down, and the managers graciously let us park our extra vehicle/trailer in the grass. We did not feel cramped at all. Luckily there was no RV site across the road from our site so that made it easier for backing in and getting out. When we plugged our EMS box into the 50-amp it gave us a notice about faulty ground, so we plugged into the 30-amp and had no problems. (I think now that our EMS was the issue). Water/sewer worked as desired. Trees around, but none that would scrape the RV. The entrance to the park can be a bit tricky - it's pretty much one lane, you go between a building and a fence. You may need to take up both lanes of the highway to turn in, but light traffic on this road. We did NOT take exit 22 off I-84 and are glad. The grade is uphill heading towards the park and there are many tight turns. Exit 18 was easier; there is one narrow curve down the road a bit after you exit and you feel like you want to take up both lanes. You go under a bridge and you can't see oncoming traffic so just be cautious. We camped at Crown Point RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Forks 101 RV Park, Forks, Washington

Date of Stay: October, 2017 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We encountered electrical issues at this park (if we had not, I would rate it a 7). Never had any similar issues before in the 4 years we've had our new RV. There was an electrical incident that took out at least $1500 in appliances and two EMS boxes while we were plugged into 50-amp outlet at site 34. The root cause could not be determined as we weren't willing to tear apart our RV walls and the RV park/electrical company weren't going to excavate their power lines or transformer. All I know is everything was good until we sat in the rain/winds for 4 days at this park. After the incident, the power worked normally (30-amp outlet) for the remaining 3 days we were there. We did not ask the park for anything and they did not offer anything to us after the incident. New owners recently bought the park. Owner was very pleasant over the phone when we made reservations and checked in. Our site was in the grassy section of the park. There are large hedges/grouped trees that help to hide the row of mobile homes across from the RV sites. But, because of these hedges, not all of the pull thru sites are "pull thru". We were able to park our truck and SUV next to each other in front of our 40' fifth wheel, so the site accommodated us well. Even with all the rain, the site wasn't muddy. Picnic table deteriorating/mossy wood; fire pit was cinder blocks put in a circle overgrown with grass/weeds. Water and sewer hookups worked fine. Laundry room up front by the office; three washers, three dryers. Washers were a bit dirty (had pine needles and such in them). The few times I tried using the WiFi, it was too slow to open up websites or check email. AT&T cell signal bounced between 1 bar 4G and 1 bar LTE. Park was mostly quiet; behind the RV sites is a field with a couple horses. Some kind of firing range not far away as heard gun shots often during some afternoons. Good location for visiting Olympic NP and ocean beaches. We camped at Forks 101 RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Spokane KOA, Spokane Valley, Washington

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $60.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed 3 nights. Easy to get to off the interstate. Entrance is spacious and cute statues/fountains. You can tell the staff is trying to do their best. Based on how the sites are, along with the more narrow interior roads, I think this is an older park that they are doing a good job keeping up. I selected an "extra wide" pull thru site. I guess the extra part refers to the grass around it. The gravel area in which to put your RV is about as wide as our fifth wheel before we put slides out. We did not feel on-top-of our neighbor. They're probably 10+ feet away. Decent gravel; site was level. Length is probably 55-60'. If you want to park your truck in front of your 40' fifth wheel, you'll need to kind of park perpendicular and a bit in the grass. We have extra vehicles, and the staff paid attention and gave us an end site and said it was okay for us to park on the grass. Sweet! We also had a mature tree on each side of the site; did not brush the roof. Hookups worked as desired. Sewer not threaded, so you'll need something to hold in your sewer hose elbow. We had no problems navigating the interior roads; probably helped that we were on an end-site. Wifi was okay; need patience when surfing websites; no password required. Multiple bars AT&T LTE. The trains were in-frequent, but sometimes were pretty loud when coming by. Never woke us up at night. The thing that bothered me was a constant mechanical hum/buzzing. Sounded like it came from near the water tower on the north end of the park. Not on the campground property so not something the KOA can control. Totally adequate stay. Anticipated the "higher" price due to the larger city. Would stay again. We camped at Spokane KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

West Glacier KOA, West Glacier, Montana

Date of Stay: September, 2017 - $74.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed 10 nights. It's understandable why this is the #1 rated KOA. I almost didn't feel annoyed paying so much for camping. :) You get great value from the site, plus a huge value being so close to the national park. We had a pull thru site on the east side of the park. This is the newer side (just a dirt lot when you look at Google Earth). The sites are more spacious than on the west side, I think. On the east side you have grassy lawns between the sites, and there's some growing trees mixed in. On the west side, in-between the sites are "landscape islands". Shrubs and trees planted together to section off a site. Driving around, it just looked more cramped. Our site was nice gravel; level. There are TWO sewer hookups so you can pick which one works best for your rig. Gravel extends out to create a patio area with firepit, benches, plus a picnic table. So nice! Site was probably 60-70' long. You could fit a 40' trailer plus truck, but we have extra vehicles so parked the truck in nearby extra parking. Grassy lawn between you and your neighbor makes it feel spacious. Whoever is in charge of the landscaping here is doing a fantastic job! The lawns, flowers, trees, etc are all tastefully done and help give that high-end resort feel. You often see staff moving around all hours of the day, and everyone we encountered was nice. It was nice to have an adult-only pool area, and the hot tubs were comfortable and clean. Had breakfast at their little restaurant; prices were more reasonable than I anticipated. Campground was easy to find; giant KOA sign on the highway. Far enough into the trees there was no road noise. Some train whistles can be heard. Very quiet at night; VERY dark at night. We were almost on the end and close to the trees; some nights you could hear animals moving around. Trash cans everywhere, super convenient. Wifi worked for checking email/social media except when the resort was full for Labor Day weekend. Multiple bars AT&T LTE. We camped at West Glacier KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Going to the Sun Road usually opens fully end of June. If coming in Aug/Sept, check the wildfire status - it may hinder views and close the road early. Drive the Inside North Fork Road to Bowman or Kintla Lake - just gorgeous. Whitefish is a super-cute town with some great breweries.

Just an overnight stop. Staff in office were polite, but focused on the work not on the customer. Multiple staff members bopping around, but no one escorted us to our site. Roads in campground are a bit confusing and we went the wrong way once. There are signs with site #s at the end of some of the rows, but the text is small so you can't read it until you're on it. Maneuvered our 40' fifth wheel no problem throughout campground. I don't believe anyone listened to me when I made the reservation nor when checking in. We have an extra vehicle plus flat trailer with motorcycles in addition to truck/fifth wheel, so we take up more room. We were given a site on the end of a row, which was shorter than the sites in the middle of the row. Did not want to park our motorcycles for everyone driving down the road to see, so we parked them in our "patio" area. Width between us and our neighbor was the width of our SUV plus a foot. Site was not long enough for even our truck and fifth wheel. Had to park truck at a weird angle and in the grass. Site was gravel/dirt; hookup side had grass; patio side a fine dirt. Leveled without issue. Hookups located in usual spot; worked as desired. Wifi worked for surfing websites. Multiple bars AT&T LTE. I called the office to see if someone was available to fill a propane tank. Staff said, "I'll send someone right out there." So I went to the propane filling spot across from the office. Waited about 5 min. A gentleman came out eventually and said, "do you want propane?" I said yes, and that I had just called. He said, "Oh you can't call, you have to come into the office." Ooookay. Maybe some miscommunications happening between staff then. Lots of bicyclists in the campground. Had a 'pan for rocks' setup for kids; very cute. A decent place; we've seen much worse. We camped at Butte KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

Just an overnight stop. High price (about $3 an hour for our 17-hour stay), but not as bad as others in the area. Checkout time in the morning is 10:30am!! This is way too early, in my opinion, for what I paid for one night. Who checks in at 11am?! Nice to have a paved RV site, as we came from a muddy campground. We have no dogs, so didn't care that there wasn't much grass. I appreciate that the person who took our reservation actually listened to me and placed us in a site that would work for us (we have an extra vehicle towing a motorcycle trailer). We were given an end site by the playground which allotted an extra area to park our extra stuff. When pulling in, you don't know where to go to wait while checking in so we just stopped right in the middle in front of the office. Hubby said the far left road would not work for our 40' fifth wheel because of the house/parked car and office in the way so he took the middle road to access our site in the back of the far right road (when facing the office). Backing in to our site was slightly challenging and we wished the road was a bit wider to aid in that. Sites are angled, thankfully. You also have to be careful to avoid their "winter water" connection which is in the middle of the site towards the rear. Site was level and hookups were more at the rear of the site than in the middle, which made it challenging with our rear slides. Hookups worked as desired. You don't feel that close to your neighbor, but having to park your tow/towed vehicle in your "patio space" does it make feel a bit limited. Wifi worked for checking websites, email, social media in the morning hours. Had multiple bars AT&T LTE. Some train noise at night, but otherwise quiet. Gentleman who checked us in was very pleasant. Some trees around, but none that got in the way of our RV. Easy to find and get to off the interstate. We camped at Billings Village RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

North Park Campground, Dickinson, North Dakota

Overall Rating:

Stayed two nights to visit Theodore Roosevelt National Park. I get the feeling the folks who designed this park had camped themselves and aspects made it evident they were playing to the campers' favor. Received a few dollars off the nightly rate by paying in cash. Gentleman in office was very nice and escorted us to the site even though he was the only one there. Park was pretty easy to find off the interstate; the road in the entrance to the housing development had some potholes so go slow. Off the main road a bit so felt safe. RV sites are situated at an angle so it's easier in/out. RV site was pull thru and very long - over 100 feet I believe. Hookups were in a normal location, about the middle of the site. They do the alternating rigs thing, so you share the hookup space with your driver-side neighbor, and the "patio space" with your passenger-side neighbor. Sites are pretty close together; typical commercial campground. But, not all the overnighters got parked together; he spaced people out a bit since park was not full, which was nice. Roads and sites are mostly sand/dirt with some rocks/gravel. Unfortunately it had rained the day we arrived so it was very muddy and we tracked quite a bit of sand in. Thankfully, there is an elevated, textured concrete edger on the patio side of the site so you can walk on that to stay off the mud. Sporadic-to-full grass is growing in the patio space between sites and in other areas around the park. Weeds/grass growing up (not tall) in many of the sites so the dirt/gravel isn't messed with much, it seems. Nice wooden picnic table. Wifi worked for surfing websites, email. Multiple bars AT&T LTE. Could hear interstate road noise in the evenings when outside. It's pretty open, the trees are still fairly short, so be aware that voices can carry across many rows. Fine site for the value. We camped at North Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Lindenwood Park, Fargo, North Dakota

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $29.00
Overall Rating:

Just an overnight stay, thank goodness. Note - construction causes you to detour and eventually go down a (normally) one-way street to get to the park. The city has put up signs that you'll need to watch carefully, and it sure would have been nice if the staff person had mentioned this detour during either of the TWO phone calls I'd had with them earlier. The A section is basically a little cul-de-sac. If you're a bigger RV, get here early in the day so hopefully there are less RVs around so you'll actually be able to get into your site. If motorhome, be sure to disconnect your tow vehicle first before proceeding into the section. When I asked the staff person if we'd be able to turn around in the cul-de-sac to then back-in to our site, she replied "I don't know." So I asked, do most RVers turn around in there? "I don't know." is what I got again. So hubby and I walked it first. He decided to turn around in front of the showerhouse and back all the way down the section into our site, as it would have taken a 10+ point turn (with few other RVs around) in the cul-de-sac to get into our site. Site was unlevel and pitted asphalt. To get our truck to fit without blocking in our neighbor, we backed way up and our back jacks and tires were in the dirt/grass. As we were putting out our slides, staff came to say we can't touch the grass. That wasn't mentioned before and you aren't provided any info sheet with rules, etc. at check-in. So we had to reconnect our truck to pull forward the few feet. Then disconnect again and graciously our neighbor let us block them in so we could park by our RV. Extra vehicle parking is all the way up by the office, out of sight - no way were we doing that. The A section of the park is so close to the interstate bridge, the passing trucks/vehicles would actually shake our 40' fifth wheel sometimes. And obviously, the road noise was loud and constant. The park around the RV sites looks very nice, and the grass mowing begins promptly at 8 am. We camped at Lindenwood Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Eagle Ridge Campground, Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $35.00
Overall Rating:

This was a refreshing stop for us after being in some bigger cities. Stayed 4 nights. We just really liked this place. Laid back. Has a nature-y feel since you're in the trees. Very dark at night for nice star-gazing. A small, mom-and-pop operation. Owners or main operators live on-site and I got the feeling that if we had any problems/questions, they'd be helpful. The gal was very nice on the phone when taking our reservation and when we arrived. It's a no-frills place, but we don't ever use laundry room, shower house, cable, yadda, yadda - so it was fine with us. If you want the Wifi code, you'll need to ask for it. Wifi worked for surfing websites, email, social media, etc. Also had multiple bars of AT&T LTE here. Site was a very long pull-thru; probably around 75-80'. At first I thought the trees would be a problem, but it was wide enough for our slides on both sides to come out and we could still walk all the way around our rig easily. We leveled with no problems and no need for extra boards under the jacks. The layout of the park is not even, meaning some sites face north-south, some east-west, some are spaced apart, some are closer together (this also depends on RV types). Interior roads are dirt/gravel, and are not very wide, but we had no issues getting in/out of the site, nor around the campground with our 40' fifth wheel. Never had to drive through a puddle and it did rain while we were there. All sites are grass, but ours seemed to have a bit more sand than what I saw on others. Set out our rug and that helped (and was not a problem with mgmt). Sewer hookup was further back from electric/water hookups, but our one hose reached fine. Had two picnic tables around our site, plus a really nice metal fire pit. Used our RV GPS to get us here, and we did not have to go through a roundabout; there were also signs to follow. The park isn't "in-town" so if you want to go to stores, etc. it's probably a 5-7 minute drive. We'd absolutely stay here again. We camped at Eagle Ridge Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wisconsin State Fair RV Park, West Allis, Wisconsin

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $39.00
Overall Rating:

Spent about 14 hours here (overnight), so just did the back-in, water/electric spot. This area is on the west side of the park in the "RV overflow" section and so that's what I'm describing here. As others have stated, it's just a parking lot. Electric and water hookups ran along the fence behind your RV. Water hookup was on the opposite side; be sure to bring a long or extra hose. Electric may also end up being on the opposite side depending on which site you are placed in. Based on the lines on the asphalt, the sites are very narrow (especially if you have slides on both sides). If the sites had been full, I have no idea where we would have parked our truck, or our extra vehicle/cycle trailer that we have. I think we ended up taking about 2-2.5 spaces. Also, if the sites had been full and people parked their tow/towed vehicle in front of their RVs, we likely would not have had enough space to get in/out successfully. Based on our angle, we did have to ask the popup across the way to move their truck so we could get out without hitting it. A lot of lights around, which was nice for safety, but very bright at night. The lot was a mess; garbage all over the ground. Staff was very pleasant on the phone; he warned about the interstate construction and gave some tips for the best route. Coming from south of the city, we took I-41 N to I-894 and came in from the west. Google Earth view doesn't show W Kearney St (frontage road) off the exit, but it's there. Exterior roads in were fine to navigate with 40' fifth wheel. Had multiple bars AT&T LTE. If they offered Wifi, I didn't bother trying to connect. The office building which also housed bathrooms, etc. looked fairly new and nice. Based on what was provided, I felt the price was a bit high...but it's a bigger city so not unexpected. We camped at Wisconsin State Fair RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Elkhart County Fairgrounds, Goshen, Indiana

Date of Stay: August, 2017 - $32.00
Overall Rating:

Stayed here for Forest River rally and two days prior to it. Our 40' fifth wheel was in one of the full hookup sites that is in the interior of the dirt, horse track. Gravel road to sites, lots of dust. Even if the RVs weren't crammed in for a rally, you'd still be very close to your neighbor; maybe 3-4 feet between yours and theirs slides. We used a few extra boards under our front jacks to help get level. Hookups worked fine and were located at the very rear corner of the site. Come prepared with extra water and sewer hose as your port may not be on the normal side. Water shared with four other rigs, pressure was still fine. The sewer port was very tall and no way to screw in an elbow so be prepared to get creative. Wifi was unusable where we were; often didn't come up in list of closeby networks (we don't have a booster). Multiple bars AT&T LTE. Site was only big enough for our fifth wheel; had to park truck in grass across the gravel road or down at the end of the row. For the pre-rally price, our site wasn't worth it in my opinion and was charged the same as the grassy sites with picnic tables, firepits, etc. The sites on the NW side that are setup more like a typical campground would have added value. If there were bathrooms or showers near the horse track, I never found them (but luckily didn't need to). The trains...wow...going past often. They sound like giant airplanes flying right overhead, but thankfully only occasionally blow their whistles. Other than that, it is very quiet. I never saw any security people around, but maybe they blended in with all of the rally people. Gates were never closed while we were here, but we never felt unsafe. Roads to fairgrounds take you through town, but are doable. Roads inside fairgrounds are tight, but didn't hear about any of the 800-some rigs hitting anything. Good location for a rally/event. We camped at Elkhart County Fairgrounds in a Fifth Wheel.
