As other have said, just a gravel parking lot with full hook-ups. Really convenient right off I-80. We have been stopping here for years on our way from IL to Denver. WiFi was great this time. We camped at Sunny Meadows Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Ditto what others are saying. PA rate really is $20/night not $15. But, it's hot and 2 Air conditioners are running on 50 amp just fine and that's what we need for one night. Some other campers have chosen not to pick up their dog's poop and that is just wrong. Too bad the park hasn't picked it up either. But there is a bit of grass for the dogs and that is nice. Advertised free wifi is unsecured and doesn't work at all. I'm on my Verizon hotspot. Didn't venture into the restrooms at all and we seldom do. Easy in and out and for the price we would spend one night if traveling through here again. But the price really should be $15 not $20 as advertised in the PA book because non PA members don't have to pay the extra $5 for "taxes and fees" which feels like BS. We camped at Sunny Meadows Campground in a Motorhome.

The reviews I previously read about this place were being too kind. First off, Passport America lists it for $15/night (normal fee is $30). This is a self serve place. You fill out form and put that and $$ in envelope and drop in box. When you get there, there is a sign that says 1 night is $30 or Passport America is $15 a night PLUS $5.00 for taxes and fees = $20 a night. It doesn't say anything about the $30 having extra for taxes and fees...just the discounted rate for Passport America. Cash only for one night. There is a Pilot Gas Station right off I-80 and this place is just a short distance down the road. Highway 183 runs right past the campground.. and I am talking close. There are LOTS of semis on this road 24/7 and the majority of them are loud. There is also train noise at all hrs of the day. The electricity is fine, the water pressure is low, the sewer hook up was fine. The laundry and toilet area are in one building which could use a good cleaning. No toilet paper or paper towels in men's bathroom. We used the washer and dryers. There are 2 of each. They are $1.50 a machine. We had to redo 1 load of washed items as the washer did not spin very well and all of the clothes were soaking wet. This appears to be a place for permanent trailers, some pretty trashy in appearance. I didn't see much activity of full timers or travelers going on there. There is no way this place is worth $30/night. That is way overpriced. And in my opinion, it wasn't even worth $20. I would say, because of the full hookup availability, $10/night would be fair, given the conditions of this place. It is a gravel parking lot with little patches of grass/weeds here and there. Sites are kinda level in some areas. It had just rained and there were big puddles everywhere so it can't be that level. We are full timers and have seen our share of RV campgrounds and this is the worst we have encountered, given all the circumstances listed above. We camped at Sunny Meadows Campground in a Motorhome.

Other 2015 reviews accurately review this I-80 overnight spot. It is about a half mile from I-80 right on the highway, so you will hear highway noise. Only used electric which was fine.The I-80 exit also has a Pilot gas station (no RV lane) with easy in and out. For the easy access convenience and basic services would stay here again.

Rate reflects Passport America discount. This is just a place to park for the night, right on a busy road and with some train noise. When we pulled into our site, we were greeted by one of the long-term residents, who appeared to be drunk, with some loud, foul language. Good 50-amp power but low water pressure. No sewer in our site. No attendant at the park. Good satellite reception and our Verizon Jetpack worked well. We camped at Sunny Meadows Campground in a Motorhome.

Gravel lot along side the road. Power, water, sewer, toilet, shower, laundry. Self-check in with envelope (they don't take checks for only one night). WiFi was fair. No shade. Sort of cramped. OK for one or two nights. We camped at Sunny Meadows Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a bare bones, unattended, side-of-the-road RV park. You pay cash in an envelope and slide it into the slot in the door. 50 amp/W/S all worked fine. Laundry is 2W/2D and not very clean but all worked. $1 each.

There are no trees and no amenities except picnic tables. Have dinner (burgers and beer) at the Last Call Bar & Grill in town at 120 N Tyler St. Great food at rock-bottom prices. We would stay here again for dinner there. We camped at Sunny Meadows Campground in a Motorhome.

Minimum facilities, but maintained well. Fairly priced with PA discount, internet works, no cable a negative and probably holds down visitations. Definitely only an overnight stay place. Near train tracks that might disturb some, didn't me. Nothing to do on grounds outside your own rig except laundry if required. Okay laundry facilities. Less than 2 miles from I-80 so no city traffic problems. A decent overnight stop. We camped at Sunny Meadows Campground in a Motorhome.

Typical Passport America park. Dirt and gravel. Front spaces have patches of grass but if you want to leave your tow hooked up you will need to go to back. Lots of gnats but it had rained a lot. Wi-Fi in back was non existent. Would stay again for overnighter. We camped at Sunny Meadows Campground in a Motorhome.

Other reviews call it as it is. A gravel, level spot with adequate utilities.

WiFi was great. Have not had wifi this good at any other park, so that does make up for the lack of frills. Did get a phone call late on the night of our arrival asking if we needed any assistance.

Overall, it was a decent place, but the restrooms/laundry area could use a good thorough cleaning.

Would stay again if in the area. We camped at Sunny Meadows Campground in a Motorhome.

The park is easy to get to from I-80. It is about a quarter to half a mile off the freeway. Not much noise from that source. But the park is right on hwy. 183 which is a busy north / south route so there is a bit of noise. There is no owner/manager onsite. This is completely self service type park. You complete an envelope with your payment and drop that in a slot at the "office". The park itself is all gravel/dirt but is fairly level. We did not unhook and had no trouble with level. To get to the bathrooms you enter through the laundry. The laundry room looked relatively clean but I would not use it. The bathrooms are a joke. The door looked like someone had tried to kick it open. Once inside the layout is very strange. The door opens directly into the toilet! If you are sitting down to do your business and have forgotten to lock the door (which seemed to be broken) the door will knock you in the head! They could have used a "deep" cleaning and probably a good paint job. The lower number sites are relatively short and if we had stayed in one of them we definitely would have had to unhook. We opted to go to the higher numbered area. This area is OK but just seemed a strange layout. But the electric the water and the sewer all worked and were easily connected. This park is a desperate; one night only; "I've got to stop and get a nap"; type place. We would most likely not stay here again and definitely would not stay if we had to pay full price of $30! Thankfully PA rate was only $15. This, for us, would be an "emergency" type stop. We camped at Sunny Meadows Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

There is no office and no attendant. You pay by leaving your money in an envelope, but there was nothing wrong with this RV park. It is not a fancy RV resort but it was clean and it was close, but not too close, to the interstate. We parked here in a 45 foot rig and would definitely stay here again overnight.

This is mostly a gravel pit that is flat. It is right next to the road so easy on/off access. The WiFi was a poor connection. There was no attendant around and we used a self service box to pay. The hook ups are to the rear so you may need extra hoses. At our site the 50 amp was not a good connection, but the 30 was OK. We would stay again for a night or two because of the easy access. The rate is PA We camped at Sunny Meadows Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

You get what you pay for with this campground. Passport America. Dirt sites with no amenities. Full hook ups. Limited number of sites for big rigs. Fine for an overnight in a self contained unit. Filthy bathrooms and laundry facilities. No office, just a place to drop your money off in a slot. Would not stay here again. We camped at Sunny Meadows Campground in a Motorhome.
