Great overnight stop on I-40 between Ft. Smith and Amarillo. We pulled inyo the campground in late afternoon and there were only four other RVs there when we arrived. Several more came while we were having dinner, including a motorhome hauling a Model T in an enclosed trailer. After parking, he unloaded the Ford and he and his wife drove into town for dinner! Our space had a big cottonwood tree on the west side that separated us from a >40-ft. 5th wheel. But neither of us bothered to unhook, so the spaces were at least 60 feet long. The only problem we had was with the RV dump--the on-road location could block a traffic lane if the road were busy. We would stay definitely here again and have already recommended this campground to relatives in Amarillo.

Our favorite private RV park in New Mexico. Only one site for one night was available when we made reservations, so we were assigned an easy in-out pull-thru at the end of a row. The site was not as shaded as the back-in sites we have had during other stays here, but was definitely more convenient for our short overnight. We will book earlier and stay longer next winter!

We had planned to stay at Prairie Dog State Park, but decided to stay in town after asking the librarian if Norton had an RV Park. She said that "there used to one south of town on State Street, but I don't know if it is still open. But, if it is open, it is right across the street from the best restaurant in town. And be sure to order their mashed potatoes--they can't be beat!" So, we drove south on State (US 283) and saw a faded sign for the Norton RV Park in front of a ramshackle house. A neighbor told us that "the owner lives in the house on the hill up the road." So, we paid the lady on the hill $20, spent a night in a level full hookup site, ate at "the best place in town" (and the mashed potatoes were good), and, while sitting on our sofa and gazing out the back window, watched the Norton High JV football team run all over the poor visiting Colby HS JV team. Now how can you beat a pull-through full hookup RV site, a good dinner, and entertainment for that price? Well, that price plus the cost of two dinners!

We saw a sign on I-90 for this campground late one afternoon and decided to stop. The campground is actually in the village of Albion and is part of the owner's development of their family farm, along with a par 3 golf course just to the north. The campground is pretty rustic, the sites are all grass, and the road is gravel, but the hookups worked well. The noise from the nearby interstate was noticeable, but the lack of many other campers on the night we were there and the rural scene--creek, pond, foundation of the barn, open meadow, big trees along the creek--more than made up for it. We would stay here again if we happened to be in the area.

We had a long, back-in, 30 amp electric site with good shade across the road from the lake. However, we got there two days after they turned the water off, even at the restrooms and dump, for the winter, although the weather was warm and sunny and the Web site said the water would be on until Oct. 1. Due to the distance back to Linton, we really "dry camped" for the night with only a few gallons of water in jugs that we always have with us. There was no additional reduction in the nightly rate despite not having water or a dump available.

You just can't beat a shaded, gravel, 30A electric site with no visible neighbors, a potable water faucet (threaded!) within hose distance, and a sanitary dump for $5.50/night with a Federal Senior Pass! If this campground were in Durango or Aspen, Colorado, the U.S. Forest Service would charge $30-40/night and it would be full every night. So there's a little train noise--we use ear plugs and a small electric fan to take care of that problem.

Old RV park that is really a "trailer park" with permanent RVs instead of mobile homes. There are, therefore, so many extra vehicles that they are parked all along both sides of the park's roads. We had no reservation but got a full hook-up, pull-thru with a deteriorating concrete drive, a small patio, and a little grass. But each pull-thru was designed for two RVs back to back, so another RV backed in behind us a hour or so later. The next morning we had to ask the permanent next-door RV owner to move his truck so we could get out of our "pull-thru" into the road to exit the park. We would not ever stay at this park again!

Date of Stay:

We stayed for only 1 night and toured the Mark Twain house and museum the next morning. We had a reasonably long, gravel and dirt, pull-through, full hook-up site at the end of a row. It was shaded by a large tree on the driver's side of the site. So, we had a little privacy and a very quiet night in the large, but only half-full, campground.

The Fish Creek Campground is huge, but most of it was closed, along with the campground office when we arrived in the middle of a September afternoon. So, we had to use self check-in. Nearly all the other sites were occupied by seasonal RVs, but few of their owners were actually there. Rain had fallen just before we arrived and the sites were wet and muddy.

Date of Stay:

Our full hook-up, pull-thru site was much better than our national park RV sites at Banff Tunnel Mountain, Lake Louise, and Jasper Whistler's campgrounds. Some tree/shrub screening between sites; nearby clean, heated restrooms; great WiFi, and walking distance to town. The town has a beautiful lake setting with extremely clear water, a long boat dock/marina, a swim beach, and rental and tour boats. Although we were there on a beautiful, warm fall weekend, the town was nearly empty of visitors. And, away from town, wildlife abounds, including a bull moose that crossed Route 10 right in front of us as we were leaving Moon Lake. Wonderful park, nice town, great campground!

Big park w/ nice landscaping, well-maintained washers and dryers, a playground, horseshoe pits, and a patio with picnic tables. We arrived without reservations, but the owner escorted us to a long, pull-through site with full hookups and plenty of room for our slides. Electric power went off early the next morning, but was quickly restored. We were screened from the driver's side motorhome by bushes and trees, and partially screened on the passenger's side from an older travel trailer. Most of the other sites were occupied by long-term, seasonal RVers, maybe half of whom were there and all of whom seemed to know one another. These people keep coming back every year, which indicates that it is a very popular RV park with Canadians.

Most of the RV sites were occupied by seasonal campers, but no one else was there the nights we stayed. Owner guided us to an electric-only site right on the beach next to the dock. We had the whole camp to ourselves, so we got out the camp chairs and wine glasses and sat on the beach watching a brilliant sun set over Rainy Lake while a big storm cloud passed to the north in Canada. Gorgeous! We would return in a minute if we didn't live 1,100 miles away!

Date of Stay:

Campground sits right on the shore of Lake Superior, with views of boats going in and out of the town harbor. During our visit, there were lots of seasonal campers and relatively few first come-first served sites remaining. So our site was a little short for parking our 5th wheel and 3/4 ton tow vehicle and had a mudhole on one front corner. But we would recommend it to others for a 1-2 night stay.

Every site in the West Campground was filled when we arrived on a beautiful, sunny fall Friday afternoon. But, since we had no reservations, we took what they had available. Our older, back-in site in the West Campground was not designed for newer RVs. Although they have some trees and bushes between sites, they are relatively narrow and very short. Only the new, long pull-through sites at the west end of the West Campground are really designed for 5th wheels and motorcoaches with toads and also face the lake. The East Campground was initially closed, but was later opened due to a much larger than expected weekend crowd. The East CG sites are much more open, with no privacy at all, but some are paved and others back up to the lake or the woods.

Date of Stay:

We were there on a weekend and both park and the campground were packed--definitely needed to have reservations. We were in the Hackberry Campground in a gravel, mostly shaded, back-in site with 30A electric and a picnic shelter. We had room for our slides, but the trees limited the use of the awning. Getting into the site was a challenge due to the trees and several wooden posts marking the corners of the site across the road.
