Cost based on Disabled rate. Roads into the campground are paved. Campsite paved, but not very long and about 2 inches above ground level (C38). There is not much shade in Loop C. If we return, we would try to get into Loop A. However, the new bath house in Loop E, is wonderful!!! If you go to shower late in the day, you would likely find the showers extremely sandy. We learned to go at noon, right after cleaning. The water pressure was good and there was hot weather. It was difficult to determine exactly when the showers would be cleaned, however. There are signs up, but that doesn't mean that the shower house would be cleaned earlier or later than listed. The campground hosts were the most unfriendly we have run across to date. When seeking their help, shoulders would be shrugged and they would go on with what they were doing prior to our questions. Although, the drive into the campground from the front gate is about 6 miles, be prepared to drive 20 miles per hour back to the campground. This is due to the nesting birds in the area. There is a nice camp store and a laundry with two washers and two dryers that cost $2.00 each to use. The Fort is a great place to visit and learn more about Geronimo's capture and escapee. If in this area, we would stay here again.

The roads into this campground are paved and as are the full-hookup sites in the park. The sites are fairly level. Although you can make reservations through Reserve America, those reservations are only for the tent sites and the electric water sites. If you wish to have full hookup, you need to call the office for reservations. The ranger running the office wasn't sure why they still haven't been able to straighten this out. Additionally, they reserve sites not by number, but by first-come--first-come. You reserve the right for a site, just not a particular site, which doesn't appear to be problematic. There are several bath houses; however, there was only one shower in each house and the bath areas are quite aged. The laundry facility only has one working washing machine and two dryers, but due to the large nature of this campground, it was impossible for me to get a turn to do the laundry. This park is a great destination campground. There is a golf course, several swimming areas, numerous hiking and biking paths, fishing, a petting zoo, horse back riding, cabins, and a wildlife rehabilitation area open for visits. We would definitely stay at this park again.

Our rate was based on Passport America rate. This was an interesting experience, with the sites looking quite level, but in all actuality were not. One of our front tires was off the ground and the same occurred with the two RVs next to us. The roads into the park are gravel as are the sites. Our site (#43), was full hookup. Each site has a picnic table and fire ring. Strange is that the neighbors sewer line runs next to our picnic table. There is a small fishing pond on site. The bath house is quite old and has shower curtains without stall doors for privacy. There is no laundry room. As a one night stop over, we would stay here again.

This is a beautiful campground with paved roads to the camp sites. Each site has a level, concrete pads. Our site (#27) was full hookup on the river. The park is well maintained with the front bath house being modern and clean. The only negative was the restroom at the back of the campground. It is older, not very clean, and had shower curtains for toilet stall doors. There is fishing, a nice playground, recreation room, covered pavilion, and horseshoes. The laundry was clean with a cost of $1.00 to wash and .75 to dry. The staff and hosts were friendly beyond belief. We camped here for 10 nights and noted that the weekends were much more active than were the week days. We definitely plan to camp here again.

The roads into this campground are paved, with gravel sites. Our site 126, was not very level. When trying to level our motorhome using even trying our leveling blocks, the front wheels ended up off the ground and we still were unable to level the unit. We walked around and noticed that many of the sites are not level. There are handicapped sites that are paved which do appear to be level. The shower house was on the cool, but did stay on for about 30 seconds at a time. The state park is beautiful and there is tons to do. There is fishing, swimming, biking, hiking, and wildlife viewing. While in the campground, we saw three turkeys, several rabbits, and a raccoon. We would probably camp here again, but would definitely seek out a more level site.

This state campground is very convenient to the interstate, to the Dells and to Baraboo. The entrance is paved as are the roads to the campsites. The campsite was gravel and all but one appeared to be fairly level. The electricity was stable. Most of the time, the showers were clean. The negative is that the shower water only stays on for a few seconds and was either cold or hot with no in between. There is some noise from the interstate, but that is to be expected when choosing a campground that is so convenient. We were in site 60E. This campground was very clean. If we are in the area again, we would stay in this campground again.

We stayed in this campground for four nights, over a holiday weekend. The check-in staff that checked is in were extremely personable. You are charged five dollars a day or $25 a year vehicle admission fee for your RV even if you are camping. On the positive side, we were not charged this fee for our tow vehicle. The roads into the campsites are paved with the sites in our section being gravel and grass. We were in site 116 and the site couldn't have been better unless it had water and sewer hookups. The sites are large and roomy. This campground has three sections. The 300 loop is the oldest and appeared to have a more rustic feel when we walked through. The 200 loop was finished in 2011 and seemed to lack the feeling of privacy found in section 100, the last section finished. The numbering system is counterintuitive being backwards in numbering system to year of completion. There is only one camp host at this campground and their site is in section 300, so we never saw him/her/them. The shower house definitely needs some attention. I did figure out, on our last day, that it was cleaned once a day around noon. Given the volume of folks using it, it would have been helpful to have someone check on it a couple of times a day on the weekend. By looking in the corners and edges of the shower stall, I could tell that attention to the cleaning details and walls has been lacking. Simply stated, the walls and floors some good old fashion elbow grease (scrubbing). In addition, the air filter is in need of changing. The amount of dust trapped there made it look as though it hasn't been changed since the building was completed. There is only one dump station for the whole campground. The hiking trails at this park are some of the best we have seen. The hidden jewel in the park is a trail to a waterfall located about a mile from loop 100. We found this beauty accidentally. It is down a steep hill, but well worth the walk. The deer and butterflies are abundant. We also saw a couple of hummingbirds.

The roads into the camping area are all paved. This is the first campground that we have been to that has two-way traffic, which made initial entry into the camping area a little tight when another unit was leaving as we were entering. Our site was not very level and was extremely difficult, due to trees, to park in. This is a double site, but there is a problem with the electrical outlets. There is only one box with the choice of 30 or 20 amp. The camp host was really nice about the challenging situation as were our neighbors. We were able to work it out between us, but if we had both needed 30 amp, it would have proved problematic. It was raining when we arrived and our motorhome started sinking down on one side. We place wood under our levelers which helped with the problem. During a break in the rain, we walked around the campground and notice that some of the sites were flooded. While the restroom area was fairly clean given the rainy situation, I can only give the showers a "C" for cleanliness. While it appears that the shower house is fairly new, it really needs a power washing to remove the grime, grit, trash, & mold around the bottom of edges of the stalls. On the positive side, the park is really beautiful and the museum one of the best I've seen. Be sure to visit the Mandan Indian Village located on the grounds. There are numerous hiking and biking trails, but it was too wet for us to try any of them out. For younger children, there is a beautiful playground. I enjoyed watching the deer and rabbits walk around the campground. Fishing is permitted at this park. We would return, but would strive to get a single site on the east side of the campground.

This is a small campground with large campsites. There is really no privacy between sites, but as we were only here for a night, it was not a problem. The staff is friendly and the shower area is extremely clean. Actually, the shower I used appeared to be brand new. The only problem I had was with regulating the water temperature. Whenever someone flushed a toilet or one of the washers came on or someone else was running water somewhere, the shower would be either very cold or hot. The laundry room, while extremely clean, is a little on the small size with only 2 washers and 2 dryers. The cost is only $1.00 a load to wash and to dry. However, drying takes an hour which caused a backup in service. Due to recent flooding in the area, the grounds were somewhat muddy. We would stay here again.

I can't say enough about this exceptionally clean campground! The grounds and facilities were immaculate. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful!!! The roads are paved, as are the campsites. The location is right in the middle of town, which could have proved noisy, but it wasn't! It was actually convenient to get to the various tourist sites about town. My husband and I would definitely stay here again!

Location, location, location! That is what you are paying for at this campground. The roads into the campground are paved, but pitted with potholes. The spaces are extremely tight. There are no picnic tables nor any fire rings. The laundry area was inadequate to serve Fishing Bridge, let allow that it also serves Bay Bridge. There were approximately 10 washing machines and 12 dryers. I had to stand in line for almost an hour, just to get a turn to use the facilities. To wash a load of clothes costs $2.50 and to dry a load also costs $2.50 and my clothes were still damp, but I felt the need to move on so others could use the dryers. Yes, I would stay here again as it is convenient to the park. Should you go to the park, be sure to go on the Chuck wagon Dinner. It was wonderful!!!

This is a no frills park on the outskirts of Phillipsburg. We selected this campground for its convenience to the gem stores and mine. The owner was quite nice and friendly. This is not a park I would select for a long term stay, but for an overnighter, it was okay. There is full hookup, but no shade. We were in site one which was right off the highway and somewhat noisy. The folks in town were very friendly.

When we first stopped at this campground, no one was in the front office; however, there was a note on the front door with a number to call. Within 5 minutes the owners arrived. One was somewhat gruff, whenever in the office area, but extremely nice when out and about in the park. The park was being updated after being closed for the winter. Only one of the shower houses was open and the laundry room had limited hours of operation. Reservations need to be made early as the park quickly fills for the summer months. I would recommend requesting Loop H, as we had no problem with traffic noise from the highway and had a wonderful view of the mountains. The former owner of the park lives on the premises and was a true joy to talk with! We stayed in the park for two weeks and truly enjoyed the area. This park is convenient to Glacier, Kalispell, and Whitefish.

The owners of this park were extremely helpful and made us feel welcome. The park is very clean and the women's shower house as just been renovated. They offer putt golf, a used bookstore, a diner, and a beautiful playground. the roads are gravel throughout the park and the sites are fairly level. Though parts of the park have been renovated, some areas, like golf area and some of the sites are a little run down. Additionally, it does have some full time residence.

This park is right of the highway and located in a relatively, flat area. This made it a plus for our RV. The sites and roads in the park are gravel and our rig had no problems leveling. Bathrooms and the laundry were extremely clean. It should be noted that only one of the laundry rooms was open when we were there. I have to agree with a fellow reviewer about the water pressure. It certainly made showering and washing dishes, interesting. There is a nice pool, which we took advantage of. Actually, we had planned to use the hot tub, but it was colder than the pool. As a side note, if you happen to visit Hill City, be sure to eat at the Alpine German Restaurant. Don't forget to save room for dessert, OMG, it was out of this world. Needles Scenic Road is also a must. We were glad we had our car, as the RV would not have fit through some of the tunnels.
