We stayed one night in a 43' motorhome pulling a dolly. The roads are paved but narrow, and not well marked, they really need new painted arrows and better signs. Our coach will not make a couple of the turns without backing up, so we had to disconnect to get into a pull-through. The park has only 4-5 spaces for big rigs despite what the web site claims. I think all of the sites are now 50 amp, but did not try to verify that. All the sites we looked at were 50 amp. All have water, none have sewer. The showers closest to the entrance office are much nicer than the others. We stayed one night on July 4th and the park was maybe 20% occupied. We would stay again as it is well placed between Denver and St. George.

One of the best laid out, cleanest parks we have ever stayed in. It is actually a reason to go back to Iowa. $30 is the best deal we've ever seen for a park of this quality. Huge sites, vast grassy areas to walk dogs, wide paved streets, etc. I'd give it a 10 if the WIFI was free (it is very strong) and if the utilities were positioned for motorhomes instead of 5th wheels. We stayed in site C5, a pull through easily long enough for our 43' coach plus dolly plus minivan, but the utilities were in the back corner, so by the time I was fully in the site I had to run ~30' of cable and 25' of sewer hose. The site slope was such that the sewer would not drain by itself, either. Next time, we'll unload the dolly and put it and the car in front of the coach and the services will play much better. There is no office. You have to call ahead for a reservation secured by a credit card. When you get there, you call the owner and she gives you very clear directions on how to reach your site. She charges the card and you leave whenever you are ready.

Very pretty smaller campground about 3 miles from Rt 7, about 8 miles from Bennington. Very quiet and clean, FHU include cable (just 13 channels) and very decent WIFI. Good ATT cell, too. Sites are arranged around small pond with a lighted fountain that is a nice swimming hole in warmer weather. All gravel roads and sites, level, table and fire ring. Shade varies by site. No laundry. Quiet dogs are more important than leashed dogs, a refreshing attitude. We'd come back anytime.

Very nice park. Site Beechwood PT4 was one of four sites in this section that was big enough for us (43'). Most of other sites too small. Started out with a reservation for site 103 in Pickerel Point campground but it was very tight, maybe not doable, and the host suggested we try to move. We were lucky to be able to get a pull thru site because they are popular and reserved long in advance. 50 amp electric only, water at the park office or at a few spigots in the campground that need long hoses. Great dump station. Paved roads, pull thrus are gravel, all others in Beechwood are paved. Pickerel Point is all gravel. Note that part of Beechwood is no-pets. Lovely lake, great hiking. Good ATT cell data and surprisingly good OTA TV.

Lovely small park. Some reservable sites, some first-come. Very heavily treed. Ranger on duty at the small store. Site 15 is a pull through, but had to back out because we couldn't make the turn. Could not get completely level. Several sites are angled backwards, requiring going the wrong way on a one-way road; carefully check the campground map before arriving if you have a reservation. A few sites will fit big rigs but most won't. Great hiking. Electric only. Get water at dump station at entrance before entering campground. Good showers. Good AT&T cell data, some OTA TV. Road from I-68 is really narrow without shoulders. Use care when towing a trailer or a dolly.

Small campground with no amenities except a dump station that is not accessible by big rigs. Note: NO water except a hand pump, so come with full tank. A shallow river runs directly behind sites. Supposed to be good fishing, kids love to play in it. Site 2 was all grass, no shade, huge, and level. It would be a problem for big rigs if the ground was wet. Sites 1-9 work for big rigs, site 9 has best shade but is across from the only pit toilet. No smell, just high traffic. Most sites might be a challenge to level. Absolutely beautiful area. Green, green and more green. Pretty intense driving, narrow roads, no shoulders, logging trucks. No AT&T or Verizon at all.

Funky mix of RV sites, tent sites and cabins. None of the spaces are numbered. The (owner, builder, camp host) escorts you to the campsite he picks for you. A little pricey @ $40. We (43') only fit in one campsite and it turned out to be pretty great: completely shaded, private and very spacious. Good WIFI and great cable, but only 30 amp. The sewer connection actually ran a little up hill, so dumping took a little work but turned out ok. Very good water, I refilled our tank. Great showers, no laundry. Needs more gravel everywhere, but he knows that. The owner is fascinating to talk to. We'd gladly return.

Absolutely gorgeous country. Heavily forested. Verdant green, rolling hills, picturesque farms and valleys wherever you look. Silent: no road noise, no trains. Colder than we realized in May: thunder, hail and rain showers. Typical older NPS campground. Only A loop has sites big enough for RVs, only two were close to our size, 43'. (B and C loops were closed and might not open this year according to the host). No hookups, no showers. Water is available and there is a dump station. The sites are narrow but not close together, narrow roads are paved. No AT&T or OTA TV, told Verizon works fine. Lots of ticks in the woods, so inspect dogs and people constantly.

As others have said, it is a lovely setting. The RV sites all face the small pond that is the central feature of the campground. We stayed in site 7. This is the first time we have not been able to get level in over a year. We got close enough to live with it, but not level. The owners said that more gravel to address the problem "is on the list", but he seemed vague about when that would be done. There are about 10 RV sites in the campground, the rest are tent sites. More road noise than I expected. Highway 74 is a busy road. WIFI is erratic. When I could get signed in it was good, but getting a connection was frustrating at times. No AT&T at all; owners said Verizon works. No cable.

On lake shore. Site A7 (I think - it backed up to power line) $30/night. Sit was spacious, partially shaded. Barely able to get level, but finally did. Power line made great dog walk. Trails in woods also good dog walking. Park is clean and attractive. Be sure you talk to them if you have a big rig. It would be a challenge to get into some areas. Most sites in the park are owned and have park models and trailers semi-permanently installed. Limited number of rental sites. No cable, no WIFI, adequate OTA reception, good AT&T. Pretty remote from shopping. Heavy train activity all night. No road noise at all. Nice pool, small beach on the lake. Dated but clean showers; small laundry looked OK but we didn't use it. Roads are mostly gravel and fairly narrow with some ruts. It looks like the drainage is being worked on and is overdue.

Many long term residents tend to give the park a somewhat seedy appearance. Although clean, many of the long term sites are pretty cluttered and some of the RVs are clearly unmovable. Our pull-through site was certainly long enough for our large coach but privacy was limited because it was narrow. Luckily we didn't have a neighbor on the curb side. No formal dog park but there is a walking trail through the woods around the pond that they enjoyed and walking throughout the park was permitted. We chose Lake Aire as a base to tour Charleston, but the traffic on RT 17 is pretty awful, especially during commuting times.

We stayed three days in site 9 in a 43' motorhome. New owners have clearly invested a lot of money. The sites are all freshly graveled and pretty level. The sites range from generous to huge. All of the facilities are new or renovated. Wi-Fi worked well enough for email, cable worked but with somewhat limited channel selection. The pool was just relined. The park manager and the work campers were friendly, competent and very service oriented. Lots of room to walk the dogs in the large green spaces bordering the park. Short walking trails are laid out in the woods surrounding the park, but we found several ticks on us and the dogs after one walk.

One of the nicest places we have stayed. As one reviewer noted, there are several sections on the park. We were in the Premium section around the pond near the office. I would guess that these are the newest sites, very spacious with big concrete pads, concrete patios, no shade and lots of lawn. It had a new laundry and bath house too. The other sections are more rustic, with gravel pads and lots of shade. All roads are paved an easy to maneuver. We stayed 2 nights, just long enough to visit the Kennedy Space Center. If we decide to stay longer the next time we are in this area we will ask for a rustic site to get trees and shade. All sites have FHU, 5o amp and cable. While there is no fenced dog run, there are several large grassy areas and a nature trail where they are welcome. I'd give it a 10 if the WIFI worked. It didn't and we were right across the driveway from the repeater. AT&T cell data worked fine.

Passport America use restricts site selection to the back-in section that doesn't have sewer connections. Absent PA, this place is too expensive. The sites in this area are very close together. 4 sites share a utility connection point so it is on the wrong side for two users and requires running long power cables and hose. It does have good cable TV. No WIFI, but AT&T data worked fine. The showers were clean but really need updating, and had no amenities at all: no soap dish, stool, even no clothes hooks. The original site we were given was unusable because neighbors had encroached. Several sites were open so we moved. Management was certainly helpful, but the place really needs an escort service to insure that incoming campers set up correctly. Given how tight the spaces are, conflicts must be frequent. The site was too narrow to get our big awning out, but it was so windy that we wouldn't have used it anyway. I had to trim a couple of limbs to clear the slides. Our mirrors hung over the end of the site which was supposed to accommodate 45'. The park has three large tent camping sections that were very busy, a small marina where boats on trailers were coming and going and a small restaurant and bar. All together a very busy place on the weekend: lots of kids riding bikes, radios, grills going, family groups , etc. That all said, the setting is spectacular, with panoramic views of the ocean complete with gorgeous sunsets. Our site was one row back from the waterfront sites and we had water views.

Nice park. No discounts offered, but price is very attractive for this area. The roads are a little tight and the sites are too, but we got our 43' coach into site A15 without any drama. All concrete pads, lots of grass. Nice pool. The park is very well maintained. No cable, no WIFI, good OTA reception, strong AT&T data. Lots of room to walk dogs but no formal fenced dog run. Most sites contained the rigs of permanent seasonal renters and full time residents. In mid-April most of the seasonal folks had already departed. Everyone we met was very friendly and spoke glowingly about the park and all the activities in season.
