What a difference new owners make! There is already a huge improvement in this campground. Trashy trailers and the old house have all been removed, and the grounds have been cleaned up. Very accommodating owners for those in Sioux Falls to take care of residency business. If approaching the campground from the interstate, there is a barrier on US 42/12th Street that prevents a left turn into the campground driveway. Go pass the campground and turn left at the next traffic light. Go around the block by turning left at the first named street, left at the T, and then right at stop to be on the correct side of the Tower Campground entrance. The campground office is in the large white building on your left as you enter. It does not look like what you might expect for a campground office. Sioux Falls is the home of the 114th Fighter Wing of the Air National Guard and depending on weather conditions, the fighter jets' take-off may fly over the campground which is very loud. Frankly, makes you want to stand up and salute!

Rate reflects a weekly rate. This is a gem located north of Frankfort on the Kentucky River at the mouth of the Elkhorn Creek. Entry can be misleading as you cross a single-lane bridge on pavement and then transition to gravel. The area around the office and the storage area are a bit unkempt, but as you are escorted to your site you round the bend and see a beautiful, unspoiled meadow. All roads are gravel and single lane but courtesy makes traversing them no problem. We requested a site for our satellite and had no problem connecting. However, many sites are in the shade so be sure to request an open site if that is important to you. The full-hook-up sites have many seasonals but their campsites are neat. The hook-ups are conveniently located and easily accessed. The sites are gravel surrounded with grass. This is not a resort but if you like a state park atmosphere with full hook-ups, you'll enjoy Still Waters. There are also two primitive areas and water/electric only sites available for RVs and tents with a dump station on the grounds. There are no trains, no highway noises, no city lights. Frisbee golf,fishing, hiking, volleyball and a lots of wide open spaces for the kids to run are located on the grounds as well as canoe rentals available at the concession in the campground. Probably could be busy/zoo on a summer/holiday weekend or if there's a company picnic on the grounds, but during the week it is an oasis. Located about 10 miles north of Frankfort, Still Waters is close enough to access all the sightseeing available in the area. Would definitely return again.

The price reflects the Passport America rate with $2 additional for 50 amp plus tax. This is an 18-month old campground with the owners putting in a lot of hard work to make it a very nice park. There was a little interstate noise with the doors and windows open, but it was not a distraction. The park was well-kept with owners in the process of putting in brick "patios" so wherever you exit your rig, you step onto the patio. The seasonal and few full-time residents were indistinguishable meaning all the sites were neat and uncluttered. There is much to do in the area which we look forward to seeing the next time we visit. A Wal-Mart and Cracker Barrel are within a couple of miles of the campground.

The nightly rate reflects the Passport America rate for 30 amp. This is one of the best PA campgrounds we have stayed in. What a value with cable and Wi-Fi included! The young man who checked us in was very gracious. For being on old Route 66, there was very little road noise. The sites were great pull-throughs so we didn't have to unhook the toad. Nice evergreens between the sites toward the front of the campground. Sites are level gravel. The "run-down" motel that is not in use was reminiscent of days gone by. We did not find it a detraction. This campground has no amenities like a pool or clubhouse, but those are not important to us. We were very happy with our accommodation's. We would definitely stay here again.

North Campground is older with many mature trees and with some paved and some gravel sites with 30 amp. The South Campground which is newer has all paved sites and 50 amp. Most sites are spacious many with lake views. Limited satellite reception in North Campground, no problem in South Campground. Water to fill tanks was hard to find. Campground is quiet during the week days but very busy on weekends. There are boat ramps and beach swimming.

A very nice RV park with several hundred sites. The sites aren't too close together and are angled for good privacy. The pads and roads are gravel, but there are cement patios and grass between the sites. There are some trees; but, they were very accommodating in the office to give us one of the numerous sites where satellite reception isn't a problem. There is a little noise from a nearby quarry - machinery humming, trucks growling, and backup beepers beeping.

Nice wide gravel sites w/ grass. Some shade, but decent satellite reception on many sites. On hillside overlooking small lake. Great location for sightseeing in the area...between Winston-Salem and Charlotte. Many NASCAR race shops in the area.

This former KOA campground has larger sites than you would normally associate with KOA campgrounds which was really nice. The garden with water feature was right outside our door and the sound of water was lovely. There is a need for fresh gravel on the sites but we had no rain so it wasn't a problem. Although the interstate was not visible, there was a fair amount of road noise but the easy on/off was very convenient. The new owners are enthusiastic and delightful and create a warm, hospitable environment. This is a great location for travel between the Smokies and the shore. We will return.

No hookups. Few bay-side sites have view of water, no sea-side sites do. Wild horses wandering around. Quiet in off-season. Lots of places to ride your bike.

Sites & roads a little tight. Gravel sites & roads. Road noise from PA -772. Animal smells from dairy barn. Managers very helpful & friendly.

This campground has about 45 sites up on a hill behind a large public swimming pool with water slides, etc. The campground has fairly wide sites with gravel pads, full hookups, and nice grass between sites. There is a fishing lake behind the row of sites on the eastern side. Other than some traffic noise from nearby I-70, the campground was fairly quiet during the off-season. May be a different story when the large, public pool on the property is open.

Date of Stay:

Sites are spacious although a few pads are a little short, and it is usually nice and quiet, even on the weekends. The non-pet sites are mostly heavily wooded and the pet loop has nice grass and some shade. Lake Erie is a short drive, bike ride, or longer walk from the campground.

This is a nice campground with fairly large sites for a private campground. Although there are a few shorter sites, big rigs are no problem for the majority of the sites. There are three main areas - on the hill overlooking the rest of the campground, at the entrance level where the office is located, and the lower area. The entrance level sites are all gravel while all the others are grass with gravel pads. The campground is well kept and the owners are constantly adding sites and making improvements. There is a new area of premium sites just added this year. These are extra large and will soon have concrete pads. All sites have full hookups and there is free Wi-Fi and free firewood. There are no bath houses, laundry, or restrooms. Scenic Hills is for self-contained RVs only.

This is a delightful and serene oasis in the beautiful rock country near Monument Valley. This well-kept campground has colorful plantings of flowers as well as green grass, park benches with soft post lights along the fishing pond. The nightly rate quoted on the Bluff, UT, website is outdated and the owners have requested it be changed for the past 5 years. We have paid more for a less desirable campsite so price was not an issue for us. Each site has gravel, a shade tree, and picnic table. The trees do not interfere with satellite reception.

Date of Stay:

Nicely spaced sites, each with cement patio and gravel between sites. Many overnighters, but when we stayed for a week, they put us on a site in a back row. There are many pull-throughs. Satellite reception was not a problem at all. About 50 miles from Phoenix. Closest Wal-Mart is 30 miles. Just one hour from Wickenburg. Easy access from I-10 but far enough from the highway that noise was not a problem. We would definitely stay here again. Passport America is good for 3 nights in six months.
