Lots of season regulars here. Popular place, even more so when there is a big concert at the casino. Playgrounds and pool for kids. At the casino - Grand Casino Hinckley - there is a Kid's Zone as well. The pool was very crowded - they allow parties, reunions, etc so it does get busy. Their Wi-Fi has multiple towers in the park. For the week we were here, I could log on but could not get pages to load except at an excruciatingly slow pace. I bragged about their Wi-Fi on here a year ago. Too bad. Grounds are well kept and the place is clean. Free shuttle to casino was running often. Picnic table and fire ring at every site. Blacktop pads with grass in between. Some sites with shade. Cable worked.

The RV park consists of about 25 back-in spaces on a black top parking lot. 30 amp electric and cable. There is a common dump with potable water. That's all there is - nothing fancy about the sites. It's all blacktop and the heat absolutely radiates in the summer. The spaces are level and wide enough and/or deep enough for most rigs and their toads. The cable is working this year, which is nice. You register at the hotel, they give you a key to the utility box for a $5 deposit. The restrooms and showers referred to are inside the hotel - in the pool area. You may use the pool and showers if you are registered in the RV park. You have to ask, though as they often forget to mention it. Reason for the high rating is the sheer value of this.

Would really like to give this a higher rating, but just cleaned a massive clog of hair out of the shower. All pull thru. All paved with picnic tables. Landscaped. Helpful staff. Fast check in. Could log in to Wi-Fi but it was so slow I gave up and used my own. Convenient to airport and major freeways. One exit to shopping center that has grocery, clothing, pet food store, restaurants, etc. There is airport noise. The only time I heard it was midmorning when several military jets flew over. Was not there on the weekend, so can't speak to the flew market noise. It is open on weekends only. Would definitely return and hope the showers are better. In every other way, it was a clean attractive place to use as a home base or overnight.

Some sites are paved, some are not. This is an old KOA in need of lots of TLC. RV sites are all pull thru. Restrooms and showers were clean. The reason I marked it as not kid friendly is because the rec room is not ready for kids. Perhaps a seasonal thing, but it was dirty and smelled musty. I wouldn't want to spend much time in there as is. The office hours are limited. If you arrive when no one is there, you can pick a site and settle up later. Don't know about extra charges if you come real early. We came when they were open so it wasn't an issue. There are lots of rules, and some are posted on the walls (not my favorite) but no odd rules. It is a shame you have to tell people to pick up after the dog or to not torment the ducks, but some people need to be told. The lady who checked us in was efficient and polite (and firm about the rules). No biggie. Could not get the Wi-Fi to work. Cable was fine. Water pressure was no problem, but we followed their instructions exactly to not use a screen or filter. Quiet park. Good for overnight.

Typical state park restrooms. Washer and dryers in bathhouse very handy and clean. Lots of kids on bicycles. Muddy sites after rain. Check in efficient. There are equestrian sites, but we did not use them. Entrance and exits are narrow. The road from the office to the campground is narrow as well. In places, two RVs could not pass each other. No shoulder in places and in some places, the edge of the pavement is a drop off ( in mud, if after a rain). Enjoyed the peacefulness of the place but would probably not return because of the roads.
