This is a very nice campground for anyone interested in outside recreation and who doesn't mind a bit of a drive to the main tourist sights. It is 20 miles north of Lake Michigan and 30 miles south of Lake Superior in the Hiawatha Forest. The sites are long and mostly shaded by tall pines. All are full hook up but without cable or wifi. Fire rings and picnic tables are included. There is a very good bar/restaurant along the road and that's where you check in where they have wifi but not strong. No store here or nearby. They do have gas (both types) available. No pool or spa, of course. Verizon data is poor here, ATT data works intermittently. The bathroom, showers and laundry are new and nice. The camp hosts are great.

This is a small camping area that is part of a nice city park. It is within walking distance of the park's beach and playground, a very good bakery, and the downtown. Sites are on the water or just above the waterside row. All are wide and include patio space as well as a wood deck that is covered and a picnic table. All have full hookups and a fire ring. Wood is available at the office. The office person is excellent and knows the area well...follow his suggestions for sightseeing. There is no laundry and there are no showers or campground toilets but the beach toilets are nearby.

As others have described, this is a very nice campground among the trees run by the owners, a friendly and helpful couple who I imagine farmed this land once maybe. The location is quiet and not on a through road. The owners have taken great care to provide playgrounds, a covered pavilion, and open space. The sites are a bit random but there's plenty of space, at least where we stayed in the area with no sewers. Water connections are shared...no problem, three spigots. Sewer would have been nice but among mature trees that'd be pretty hard to do. The front office is open late and sells ice cream...the proprietors could not be nicer. There are pieces of farm art/sculptures scattered around the campground. My only concern is that the bathroom/bath house should be modernized...they show age...but the owners do keep everything pretty clean. We'd go back.

This is a great little campground. The owners converted their family farm into a family campground. The sites are large, pull through, with some shade. The campground shows their love for the place...level sites, fire rings, cheap firewood (wheel barrel full for $10), lots of field games (disk golf, horse shoes, pitch and putt, volley ball), a walking path, free paddle boats on the lake, indoor games and library, and so forth. There are no pool facilities. The family is always around checking that everything is fine. The location is in a Minnesota recreational area full of lakes about 20 miles east of Fargo.

This is a very nice campground, most of it well shaded by trees. The sites are spacious enough with some shrubs between spots. Utilities are well placed. The staff are friendly and helpful from check in to set up to departure. The location is very convenient to the interstate, the campground is off a busy road but only those closest would have an issue. We would definitely stay there again.

This is good campground for an overnight, on the edge of town and within walking distance of food, casinos and Walmart. It is close to the interstate but is quiet. All sites are full hook up, gravel and close to level. The wifi was excellent as the park was pretty empty when we stayed in early July. Concerns are that it is expensive, the office was never staffed so you just stuff money in a slot, no one ever returned phone calls. With no personal contact we didn't get important info including the laundry or bathroom codes...pretty odd way to run a campground. For $40 there should be some attention to service. Some picnic tables, no dog walk, no playground, no pool, etc.

This is the best RV park in Cody. It is conveniently located near the museum and within walking distance of restaurants and shops and the hospital. Walmart is about a mile away. Great access to all tourist sights. The layout of the park is compact with very nice sites along the back row, tight sites in the middle. Trash but no recycling. Water, cable were fine. Sewer connections could be at the back needing 25 feet of hose...they sell additional sewer hose in the office. Our electrical kept spiking on one leg losing half the circuits but that could be weather related. Office personnel are knowledgeable and very nice. Very good store. The spinkler system kept being moved so our entryway was always muddy.

We liked this campground about 30 miles west of Bozeman at the headwaters of the Missouri River. It appears to have been a KOA. There is plenty of shade, the ladies running the campground are very helpful, and they sell great ice cream at the office. When we were there, there were domestic rabbits running around the grounds...cute. It is near good trails and very doable hiking at the headwaters. Three Forks has some good restaurants. The campground attracts a fascinating mix of bicyclists, tent campers, foreign visitors, Class A's, trailers of all ages and 5th wheels. Potential campers should be aware that many sites have no sewer, some are 30 amp. The sites nearest to the road are noisy but it is bearable. For me the biggest limitation was the men's room. I thought it needed serious renovation. It was cleaned daily, but the porcelain was permanently stained, but when you're in a space without sewer you have no choice. My wife said the women's room was fine, so.... Also, there was no cable, over-the-air TV was minimal. We'd stay here again but farther from the road. Hopefully buy the the men's restroom and showers will be better.

This is one of my favorite campgrounds. The sites all have about 15 feet between them, good grass and paved patios. The utilities work well, the wifi is excellent. The camp hosts are phenomenal. The location is well off the road and with a golf course between the park and Flathead Lake. Safeway and Walmart are nearby (not positives for us) and other stores. The town is nice with some good restaurants but Big Fork (30 minutes away) has more interesting shops and many more restaurants. The lake is beautiful.

This is a very nice, relatively new RV park on the north edge of town. The layout is excellent and the sites are paved with a patio area and well maintained grass. There is a nice pool, a beautiful lounge, and very nice showers and laundry. Although it is at an intersection, the road noise was negligible. Site spacing is quite generous.

This is a very nice, well-located park up the Columbia from Portland. There is easy access to the river sites and waterfalls. The campground is very large with many long termed but this is not an issue. It is located between a heavily used highway and an infrequently used railroad. It is also on the landing patten for the airport although the planes are high over the campground. If you are lucky enough to be far from the road, you will be happy, if not, run your AC all the time.

This really is a very nice small park just south of Eugene. As others have noted it is well run, well maintained and the layout is carefully planned. Pancake breakfast on Saturadays is a fun feature. We stayed here for ten days and will come back. The cost is reasonable for what is offered. The employees are all great. The washing machine area is new and modern. There are just two bathrooms and they are combined with the two showers. There some amenities not included. No store, no pool...fine with us, Eugene has lots of support for RVers. No pet walking area...we don't have pets. There is a very nice green space in the middle of the park. No fire rings. No trash pick up but bins and recycling are nearby. BTW, the spaces nearest the road are too close to traffic if you don't have your AC running or can hear. It is well worth a few extra dollars for a premium space.

We stayed in a gold site and it was beautiful...it was triple width with a tree canopy. The paved site had a separate space to park the tow vehicle, utility and storage...the overall area was huge and the spacing between rigs the greatest I've seen in a traditional park. Each site has an external trash can and recycling bin in a small walled area and a storage structure. The common facilities (coffee/newspaper lounge, gathering spaces, washers, dog walks, etc) are all excellent. The wifi is good and cable is very good. There is no pool and no fires (other than propane) are permitted...serious restrictions but that's part of why this place looks so good. The neighborhood is pretty quiet.

As other reviewers said this is a very nice, well maintained park. The roads are paved, the sites are level gravel, and each has a plot of grass. Spacing is very good. The park is well located for excursions. The pool area and common facilities are quite nice although the pool is small for a park this size and usually has some group of adults standing at the center. They re entry changed their wifi provider so it is improving...there are multiple towers.

This is a large park set back from the road, one of the better parks near Rushmore and Custer. Sites vary tremendously from back-to-back back ins to pull throughs, from flat sunny sites to sloped sites among the trees, from tight side-by-sides on gravel and weeds to well-spaced sites with nice wide grass areas. The park is available far cheaper if you'll listen to a 90 minute membership pitch. Although we felt the campground was very over priced, it might not be for this location. It is clean and tidy but some loops could use more work. The staff were fine.
