This park is a great value, and even at full price rewards a visit with a quiet, relaxing stay. Long, level pull thru sites under large trees with lots of grass - the perfect place for a recliner, a good book, and a nap. The owners were friendly and helpful, and are quick to provide assistance. No cable TV and few open areas for a satellite, but ample OTA TV. Good, solid WiFi, and Verizon cell/data were excellent. Some train noise in the early evening, but quiet at night. Not a lot to do in the area, but perfect for a relaxing stay. We'll visit again. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is a great value, even at full price . We stayed with Passport America. Long, level pull-through sites under large trees with full hookups and lots of grass . Satellite TV is easy set up. Good, solid WiFi, and Verizon cell/data is good. The owners were friendly and helpful, and are quick to provide assistance. Not a lot to do in the area, but perfect for a relaxing stay. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

We have stopped here five or six times over the years. On our first stop we were negatively impressed. But these people have really made a nice park here. It is quiet, clean - they have obviously worked hard to clean and repair. It is greatly improved. We highly recommend it. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

On 6-week RV trip and used this as a for-the-night stop. Had everything one would want for a stop-over, but seemed to lack amenities we would want as a place to spend several days. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed at this park for one night & it was perfectly adequate for that. You can't beat the price with the Passport America discount. The site was level. The park was in good condition even with all the rain the area had. We were able to get Satellite & over the air signal. The sewer hook up was too far back to bother with for one night. We would stay here again if we were passing through the area. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

Great little park for an overnight stay. Rate reflects Passport America. Most of the sites are seasonal but there are a few full hook up level pull throughs for transients. Easy access on and off the freeway. Shaded sites which were welcome in the the 95 degree weather. Clean facilities. Will stay here again. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice & well Icampground. We had a pull thru site so we didn't have to unhook, it was gravel and level. Several fulltimers & local workers but not a problem. The owners were very helpful, easy on/off of I-90. Unfortunately the wifi was out when we were there. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

We found this to be an adequate bare-bones park for an overnight stay that was very reasonably priced. We had a very long and level pull-through. Friendly staff. Large open field for our dog. Free Wi-Fi was strong and fast enough. Easy access from I-90. Recommended. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

Rate is Passport America. What a little gem this is if you like small quiet parks. We stopped here just for an overnighter. There isn’t much else around so we didn’t even unhitch. The manager was very welcoming and took us personally to our site which was a long and wide, level pull-through with a shade tree that didn’t interfere with our slides, grass and a nice picnic table and fire ring. We had our choice of 30 or 50 amp and the water pressure was perfect. The Wi-Fi worked just fine. It was so quiet and peaceful there with big trees and lots of grass. There was even an area in the back where I was able to let my dog run off leash a bit. I would definitely return. This park is a favorite! We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Passport America rate. Stopped here for an overnight that turned into two nights because of bad weather. I almost didn't stop here because the 2013 Good Sam rating was low. Bathrooms/showers are dated but clean. This park under new ownership and they have done a fine job of updating and upgrading the campground. It's easy on/off I-90 but no traffic noise. Sites are level. Owners are friendly and helpful. Wi-Fi is good/fast. I'd stay her again if in the area. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

Very convenient to interstate. Nice shaded sites and park is well maintained. Great, helpful staff. Bathrooms need renovation. With Passport America you can't do better. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Motorhome.

This could be a great little campground with a little TLC. It is easy on/off I-90 with little traffic noise. There are pull-through and back in sites available although there are issues with trees hanging too low at some of the sites. A little tree trimming would be beneficial. Sites were level and the utilities were adequate. Verizon cell and internet worked well (did not use their WiFi) and we were able to use our rooftop satellite. There are some long term campers. All in all this is good for an overnight stop. We would stay here again. We camped at Korte's Checkers Welcome Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
