My wife and I stayed at Creekwood Farm for 5 days over the July 4 weekend. This is not a bad campground. My wife and I much prefer national parks and state run campgrounds because they typically have more room. But we don't mind staying occasionally at private campgrounds. Creekwood is a very prime example of why we have problems with private campgrounds. If we had been given the option to not be in the middle of the party all day on Saturday and also have to not have traffic through our campsite the entire weekend it might have been more pleasant. When I called and made the appointment I asked for a creek side site. The lady said they had one creek side site left and I reserved it. Nothing but a blatant lie. The site they gave us was site number 75. It IS NOT on the creek even though their VERY misleading site map shows it on the creek. Not only that, #75 is not a premium site. It is smaller and the utilities are misplaced toward the front so I couldn't back the motor home into the site so I had room for the toad. So this "premium" side it nestled in between the last REAL premium site and one of their permanent cabins. Right behind side 75 and the cabin is their recreation area. They had a big cookout on Saturday. That was cool, but when I arrived I found a hose hooked up to our water spigot. It ran out the end of the site. I figured they were using it to water the grass so I unhooked it and did my hookups. The next morning someone had installed a "Y" and hooked that hose back up. We had to compete with their party for water pressure. And guess where everyone in the campground walked, or drove their golf carts, through to get to the picnic? Yes, site #75. And not a word about any of this when I made reservations. We were totally misled. And they didn't mention that you had to rent a fire pit if you wanted a campfire. How ridiculous!!! We won't be back.

We almost did not stop here because of the previous review. In thinking about it I can't quite figure out why the reviewer had concerns about who was in what site and how often they moved. It makes me want to review the review more than the campground. That reviewer obviously had issues with something more than what they are saying. This campground is a fair, middle of the road campground. It is a bit too expensive for it's condition and amenities, but it you are paying for being on the beach. As with ANY campground on the beach, it will be windy and you will get a layer of salt on everything. The paved sites are pretty close together and long term residents are allowed to put up their own structures which can be an eyesore. We are paying a daily rate so electricity is not a problem. The Wi-Fi is strong and fast. But we are fairly close to the office. The worst thing about our site is that it is next to the main road so we get a lot of road noise both day and night. We would definitely stay here again.

One thing we don't particularly is site that are basically on top of each other. The sites in this campground are spacious. But because of how they are positioned you end up being right on top of your neighbor. Lots of folks don't mind this. We do. The biggest problem we had was the total lack of drainage around our site. It rained pretty heavy one night and we had about 2 inches of water on our site. We hadn't set out much so all we had to worry about was a water saturated carpet and entry rug. We used this campground only as a base camp as I was playing in a golf tournament nearby so it was OK. It is also not a bad location when visiting Nashville. We wouldn't stay here for a "camping experience".

We were the first to review this campground. It has been our favorite campground and the campground still is. However, they keep changing concessionary and the administration keeps changing. They are trying to force everyone to make reservations before coming. However, if the weather turns bad or you have something come up you forfeit the cost of the first night. This causes two problems. First if you can't go you loose $17. Second, if someone shows up that want's to camp that site is reserved and will sit unused. We never know for sure we have time until the last minute. So we just show up and pick an unreserved site and have a nice weekend. We've been doing this for years now. We showed up this Friday evening and were in the process of choosing a site when the camp host drove up and informed us that we could only pay for one night. And that if someone reserved the site on the on-line reservations system we would have to leave. At the time is was cold and raining! The guy was condescending and kept telling me I just didn't understand. Why don't we use the reservation system? You automatically get charged for the first night. It's non-refundable. So if a hurricane hits you are out of luck. If we can't just show up and claim an available site for the weekend we won't bother to go back.

Stayed here while attending a convention in Savannah. We were pleasantly surprised with this campground. The pull through sites were all quite manageable. Although you really have to be on your toes getting a big rig around the trees. The trees were amazing. Our biggest problem was not the campground's fault. Savannah in July is oppressively hot. The campsites were very spacious and not on top of your neighbors. We would definitely go back. Hopefully during a cooler time of year.

This is a pretty rough campground. The roads are dirt with some stone and rock mixed in. The whole campground is arranged a bit haphazardly. We had probably the best camp site available. Mostly because it was out of the way at a weird angle. It was large and covered with gravel. We were warned about not leaving food out because of bears. However, one of the neighbors put out corn everyday to attract deer, birds and other animals. I don't know if bear like corn or not but it worried us a bit. Most of the sites are close together and not long enough for a longer 5th wheel and tow vehicle or motor home and toad. There was extra parking available in the campground. WiFi was slow and buggy. We finally just gave up. According to the instructions, online game playing or any sort of streaming was not allowed. I don't know how anyone could stream anything at the speeds we were getting. We did have a nice fire pit and enjoyed sitting out by the fire. Even though it was late July the temp at night was in the high 40s. Perfect for us. And the night sky is amazing!!!

This is a primitive campground just at the start of the road up to Cinnamon Pass. You are at over 9500 feet at this campground. The only facilities are pit toilets. We stayed here in our motor home and it was a challenge getting it level. But we did with some patience. There were mostly tent and trailers there but a few of the sites can accommodate a big rig. Just make sure your water is topped off and the holding tanks are empty. We enjoyed our stay. It was relatively quiet and the sites were spaced well apart. With surrounding mountains and spectacular views this is a great place to spend a few days. It is still close enough to Lake City to run into town for a meal or to make an ice run. If you love 4-wheeling you'll love this part of Colorado. And this campground provides as much as you can expect in location and relaxation. Don't forget your jeep when you come.

This campground has a variety of sites. Some are quite large others are very tight. At our site the guy next door had parked his 5th wheel where the slide actually was over our site and then complained when our slide would have been right up next to his. The hostess actually asked me to move over, which meant that we wouldn't be able to park the toad at the site. The Wi-Fi available at the site is a commercial service and isn't very fast. Wi-fi was important to us since we work remotely and needed a day or two of good access. Campfires were not allowed. Overall we managed OK here. We worked one day then went to the Grand Canyon another day and then went our way. We would stay here again but only for one or two nights.

It really depends on what you are looking for. This is an excellent resort type RV park. They have thought of just about everything. This is as nice of a resort as I have seen. We overnighted here on our way from San Antonio, TX, to the Grand Canyon. We just prefer camping, with trees, space, campfires, dirt, grass and space. You won't get any of that here. You will be able to open your slides and your awning, but you'll still be staying on a gravel and concrete parking lot with small trees and bushes planted in preplanned spots. If this is your thing, then you'll love it. We thought it was great as an overnight stop. Good security, quiet and not very many people there since it was off season. We wouldn't come here to stay any length of time.

We stopped off here on our way to the Steamboat Springs area. Knowing that there aren't any decent campgrounds near Steamboat (yeah, we know about Steamboat Campground, they were full anyway) we need to stop over for a day or two where we could access the internet and get some work done. In the AAA guide it states they had WiFi so I gave them a call and let them know we needed a good reliable wifi access. They said they did. So we booked a couple of nights. The campground is a gravel lot with some trees and bushes planted in around the sites. The trees aren't big enough to provide any significant shade. The good thing is the drives were so wide it was easy to get in and out of the sites. The sites are wide enough to open slides and awning without worrying about the neighbors. Watch for the dogs running around free. It seems there are some either permanent or seasonal guests who treat the campground as their back yard, dogs and all. The wifi was a big disappointment. It was slow, although not as slow as some we encountered on this trip. The continuous resets were frustrating. Just about every 30 minutes the wifi would go down, reset and come back up. That's ok unless you're in the middle of an online meeting with the boss back at home. Or running a test of the web site your are developing. If you are looking for a nice level site for the night while traveling through this section of Colorado we would recommend this campground. If you need full hookups this will also work just fine. It may also just about be the only full hookup facility in quite a few miles around. If that's the case, it might just work. Just go fishing or hiking or whatever else you come here to do. But don't expect to spend any quality time at the campground. Not much in Kremmling by way of entertainment or restaurants. So you should plan to cook in and get the dish going.

We've been staying at this campground for 15 years starting with a 2-person tent. We like it because the campground is never that crowded and affords a little privacy. The shower house is generally clean. It's a bit rustic so don't expect ceramic tile and blow dryers. There is a great 8 mile loop for hiking but it is pretty demanding. Pick the right site and you feel like you're all alone even if the park is packed. The sites are all large and nicely spaced. There is no office or campground store and the closest store to buy ice and other supplies is about 10 miles. So make sure you have plenty of ice before you get there. Then sit back and relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.

There is nothing special about this campground. The sites are close together and can be quite soft and muddy. We stayed here because we were visiting the Cincinnati area and prefer to take our RV with us. Even though it is one of the closest campgrounds to the Covington/Cinci area, it is still much to far to be convenient. The best feature of the campground was the management. They were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again just for that.

This is a primitive campground so don't expect luxury. There is water available in each loop. The sites are large, level and gravel with paved roads. What you loose in luxury you gain in being beauty and raw nature. This campground is used heavily during hunting season and during holidays. Other times, especially early spring and late fall before hunting season, it can be nearly empty. So fill your holding tank, crank up the generator and relax with privacy and peace and quiet.

The only good thing about this campground is it's location. If you are attending functions in the downtown Louisville area this works fine. But getting a spot can be a challenge since they have so many long term residents. The campsites are so close together they are tough to get into. The few sites they have that are managable seem always to be reserved. I am pretty good at getting my 5er in a spot. It took me nearly 20 minutes to get it in the assigned site. With the slide extended there couldn't have been more than 4 or 5 feet for the folks next door to get out of their RV. Never mind using an awning. We parked the truck sideways and it still stuck out into the road. This campground is strictly for a quick in and out to avoid a hotel.
