We were reluctant to stay here because of the number of poor reviews, but had stayed here over a decade ago and decided to try it again. We were pleasantly surprised and found it to be a pleasant 2-night stay. The camp host was very friendly at check-in, and we did not need/have any other interactions with campground staff. The laundry seemed adequate but a couple machines were out of order. Sites and roads are gravel and are typically spaced based on our camping experience, although you can be rather close end-to-end if someone is in the space behind you. There are lots of trails in the woods, and there is a swimming area at the lake. Wifi was somewhat lacking, but was adequate for checking email; it was a bit slow for doing much surfing. The 6 mph speed limit is closely enforced, so obey it or expect to be reminded to hold down your speed (I have no problem with that--there are lots of children and bikes in the campground). The rate is higher than we would like for the type of stay we had; however, it seems pretty reasonable considering the nice lake access. Overall we were happy with our stay and would not hesitate to stay here again if in the area.

We stayed here almost 2 weeks while visiting the general area. This is a great little city campground, convenient to walking/biking trails and is clean and well-maintained. The city staff is very accommodating and helpful if you need anything. Reservations can now be made through the city's web site. The free wifi was quite reliable. Restaurants and a grocery store are within walking distance. A Walmart and Menard's are also within a couple miles. Full hookup campgrounds seem to be in short supply in this area of Wisconsin, so we consider it to be a great find if you are in the area. Campground drive and sites are all paved and very level. Electrical hookup is at the middle of the, so be sure to park so that your electric cord will reach. Some sites have fire rings.

We stay here when visiting the Indiana Amish country. We find it to be a very convenient, central location to the various Amish communities around including the restaurants, markets, Shipshewana flea market, etc. The campground is basic, no particular amenities; but it has great access to the trail system, is clean and secure. Wifi is generally OK. Not much shade available on most of the sites. The gravel is getting a bit skimpy on some of the sites, but there are paved access roads.

We stay here every time we visit Fort Wayne for genealogy research at the Allen County Library. It is extremely convenient to downtown and is on one of the bike/walking trails from which you can connect to the great network of trails. It is also convenient to the interstate and restaurants, etc; a Costco is just a short distance away. Satellite access is not possible from every site because of the trees, so check that if it is important to you. The hosts are friendly and give excellent service. Overall, a great value and place to stay in the area.

Clean, quiet, country campground that makes for a very pleasant basic stay. Owners are very friendly and live on site. Gravel sites and roads. Setting is very rural, but town is only about 3 miles away. Verizon cell service was excellent. No Wi-Fi in the park. Most sites are nicely shaded but open enough for easy satellite aiming. Would not hesitate to stay here again when in the area.

Very convenient to downtown Indy, takes about 15-20 minutes to get there. Also very convenient to restaurants and stores in the Greenwood area. Easy access to the interstates. Owners live on-site and are very helpful and friendly. Park is clean and well-kept. Wi-Fi was usually reliable and the speed was adequate; only a few times did the system seem to bog down. Very clean and well-maintained laundry facilities. Downsides: a lot of sites are side-to-side and can result in close quarters, especially with slideouts. Sites are gravel and there can be a bit of mud or water in heavy rain; not all of the interior roads are paved. If you happen to be in a site near Hwy 37, it is pretty noisy. Overall, we felt this camp is desirable and is certainly the best place we have found to stay in the Indy area. We would gladly stay here again and have no reason to try to locate another place in the area.

We also stayed here about 9 years ago and chose to stay here again when we were in the area this year. The campground is convenient to the Amish country sites and events, and is very convenient to many RV manufacturers, service centers, accessory manufacturers, etc. The campground is clean, secure and offers a very big area for walking or biking. Plus, access to Goshen's trail network is just across the street. The Wi-Fi was reliable but not extremely fast. There are no amenities beyond the basic RV-related necessities. Overall we find the fairground to be a good choice for staying in this area.

Nice city-owned park that is convenient to about anything in Fort Wayne. Located about 8 minutes from downtown. The St. Joe river is across the street and is about 100 yards away. An adjacent city walking/biking trail allows easy access to Fort Wayne's 60+ mile trail network. The park is clean and the hosts are friendly and conscientious. Be sure you have enough water hose in case you get a site where the shared water connection is distant (50' should be enough). No sewer hookups, but pump service is available 7 days a week for $10 per service, or you can move the RV to the free dump station. Shower, restroom, and laundry facilities are clean and accessible by code only. Wi-Fi worked reasonably well, but it does bog down at times and outlying sites can have a rather weak signal. If that is important to you, check the Wi-Fi reception before you set things up, in case you want to move to another site. Overall this is a nice place to stay and we'd stay here anytime we visit Fort Wayne.

Stayed here a week while visiting in the area. Very handy to I-77 and I-70. Campground staff was very friendly. Plenty of places to walk--around the lake, trails into the woods, etc.--and a road that was not busy, serving basically only the campground. Wi-Fi was reasonably reliable, but did bog down at times; cable is extra cost. The camp roads that were not paved could stand more gravel, as they got rather muddy during rains. The water pressure was good, but the water did become discolored with iron at times. Nice touches like free caramel corn and other activities made the stay even nicer. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Just a basic campground handy to Richmond and located on Hwy. 1. No amenities but it certainly provides the basics if you're just needing a place to stay for a while. Water pressure was low. Felt safe and secure. Very handy to shopping and restaurants. If basic is what you need, this place fits the bill.

We stayed here for the convenience of reaching downtown Richmond. Very handy to I-95 to travel into town. Sites were level but just a bit tight in the section we were in. Roads were pretty decent, but gravel, not paved. The Wi-Fi was reliable and easy to use. Cable TV provided an excellent number of channels. Sewer connections were a bit high off the ground, so if you have a low unit, be prepared to walk the pipe empty; it won't drain on its own. The staff were friendly and quite helpful. Would not hesitate to stay here again if visiting the Richmond area.

Note that we stayed here in November, so we did not have a problem with insects. This park is very isolated so don't expect a lot of common shopping and fast food places nearby. Those are about 20 or more miles away. However, if you do some research you'll find some good local restaurants nearby (e.g. Courtney's Seafood) and there is a well stocked hardware store nearby. The staff was friendly and we noticed staff patrolling several times a day. Sites were clean and level. We stayed in Tulip Loop so we had full hookups. All things considered, I'd hate to pay the full rate here. We used the Golden Age pass which gives a 50% discount. We came here specifically for the historical stuff related to the Civil War prison camp, but it would also be a great place for fishing, kayaking, etc in season. We found it to be a great place to kick back and relax a few days, but I suspect it would be quite different in season because it would be considerably more crowded.

Considering the scarcity of campgrounds in the Richmond area, this place was completely acceptable for our 8 night stay. The campground is not fancy, has no amenities but we found the staff to be friendly as well as the people in the adjacent mobile home community (walked our dog there several times). It is convenient for driving into Richmond and food, fuel and shopping centers are nearby. Yes it is on Hwy 1,but the traffic noise was very light at night and did not disturb us at all. We would stay here again for a trip to Richmond. Rate reflects the "Kosmo Club" discount. Be sure to check that out if you'll be staying more than two nights. It's a $5 per night discount for up to 14 nights per year, for a fee of $10.

No doubt that the strengths of this campground are its overwhelmingly convenient location to the Williamsburg attractions and shuttle service, plus the very friendly staff; it is also very clean and well-kept. We were a bit disappointed in the Wi-Fi considering that they stress in their advertising how good it is supposed to be. It is not bad, but our expectations were very high because of the advertising. We did experience a few dropouts and slowdowns but overall it was very usable, just not "the best" that we were expecting. The only notable downside for us was the trains. They were not the worst we've experienced but on a few occasions they did startle us awake. We would not let that prevent us from going there again, but be warned. Some trains do go through late at night and in the early morning plus all during the day. Overall, I don't think you could beat this place for a visit to Williamsburg, especially using the Passport rates. If you can tolerate trains, it is unbeatable. Our rating would have been at least two points higher were if not for them. Average rate reflects PA discount.

This campground is fairly new and is a work in progress, as more amenities are being added. There is a nice playground on the site and there are laundry facilities. Hookups are new and conveniently laid out. Owner was very helpful and friendly. There are not many campgrounds in this general area, so it is good to have another choice now. The main negatives are the frequent noisy trains on the double track just across the road, and the sites could be more level. It is also cash only unless you want to pay a 10% surcharge to use a check or credit card. The trains are our main reason for a "4" rating. I indicated "don't know" as to big rig accommodations; although some sites may be OK, the turns are relatively tight. Plus I don't think all of the sites are long enough for a big rig. It would be best to call and make sure that an appropriate site is available if you are in a long rig.
