Rate reflexes one night of Passport America, the normal rate is 39 per night. The campground has a very nice appearance but disappointing once in the camping areas. They have a lot of add on charges like for lake sites and extra charge for pull through, I told them we were ok with a back in site and was advised that we would not fit with our 40 Foot coach, but when seeing the back in sites it would not have been a problem so we felt a bit misled. Water and electric was fine but there is no sewer on any of the sites only one dump location at the front of the campground, our site was not anywhere near level and even though dry days before it was very wet and muddy around the site. The restrooms in the campground area were hideous pit toilets with a lot of little bugs everywhere in there. We will avoid this place in the future. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

We had a long, level, gravel, pull through site. It was 50 amp with water. Part of the site was very wet, even though there had been no recent rain. Everything worked fine except the wifi. There are wifi antennas throughout the park but it was very poor most of the time and completely unusable at our site. We had to rely on our Verizon and that was a solid 3G and marginal 4G. We were in the wooded section. The bathrooms and showers at the office looked clean and well maintained, although we did not use them. They were far from our site and would require driving. Our biggest complaint is that it is very over priced. Our $29 rate reflects a Passport America 50% discount for one of our 2 nights. The normal rate for a site with water and electric and without a sewer connection is $39! There are no sewer connections at any site. They have a single dump site on the way out. We had to wait in line. We will not stay again at those extremely high rates. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed two nights. Friday and Saturday, check in was long site was graveled and muddy. We stayed here because of closeness of family. Friday was a nice quite day and night. Saturday when all the permanents are on site not so much. We were given a pavilion site and we were told that there was a poker run that night if we wanted to participate. We choose not to, we were never told and we even inquired if there was anything scheduled for the pavilion as we an older dog and she is only learning to camp. We were told nothing scheduled there. Well about 8:30 people started to arrived by 9:00 we had people and golf carts coming right through our site. (which violates there own published rules.) The permanent campers were not considerate at all to us being there as they tramped through stating well so much for your quite time. The operator of the campground came over to see if we were upset. We advised her she should have forewarned us she said next time they would put us some where else. There will not be a next time. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The campground grounds are well maintained, but the restrooms are pit toilet (out houses). We were told when booking we would be near the restroom area if we wished to use them, due to not having sewage, but they did not explain they were outhouses. The deal breaker was my family who we traveled to see came in to visit us . They charged $6.00 per person to enter campgrounds, and no exceptions. It cost us $30.00 per day for my family to visit us while we stayed at the campground. The excuse was they would use the facility activities. It's was October and everything in the campground was closed except the game room, and not very many 55 plus people usually use those. Just can not recommend this campground, and would not return there. Cannot understand why Good Sam recommends them; they just missed up on this one.

Park is off of main road, but no highway noise and a train goes by once a day. Roads and sites are gravel with grass between. Many trees so it's hard to get satellite. Power, water, and cell (AT&T) were good. Dump station and garbage is far from site. It's high priced for no sewer. We will probably look elsewhere next time.

This is a pretty RV Park. Trees, lakes, quiet. However no sewer hookups. I missed the now sewer when I picked the park out. This park was only rated three out of five by one of the big books. No sewer likely the issue. Another serious issue is the road to the sites. It is narrow and you have to be careful if you have a big rig, which we do. The problem will come up if you are going one way and you meet someone going the other. You will not be able to see them before it is too late and that will require unhooking the car and a very difficult back up. If you are not an expert backer I do not recommend you stay here. WiFi is intermittent but free. Nice beach and swimming lake. Another really annoying problem with this park is that if you have a friend, or in our case, family members coming to visit you, it is $6 bucks each to get in. Not joking. $6 bucks each. I paid $30 bucks for some family member to come by and sit in our motor home. So if you plan visitors be prepared to fork over some money. The paying to get in is a Cleveland "thing". We are at another park in this area east of town and it costs $8 per guest here. I sweet talked the office person today though and we got a few family members in at no charge. Since we did not use any of the facilities I see no reason to pay. Did I mention no sewer. Without taking into consideration the nice ambiance this park would rate maybe a 2 on facilities alone. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

There were very few good sites to camp on. Sites in back of park were horrible. There were no full hookups. Very pricey for what they offer. Lake was very clean to swim in, and there was a nice playground. Two dogs maximum on site, and they charge you $5.00 a night extra for the second dog. Never heard of such a thing in all my years of camping. The sites we had were right next to pit toilets, not flush toilets. The camp store was very nice.

My husband and I stayed only one night here in a pull-through site on our way out east. The site was nice as it had a decent picnic table and enough lawn for our 2 labrador retrievers to walk around on. The gravel pad was very level and we didn't have to do much to set up for the night. We did not use the shower house or bathroom there as we were self-contained in our trailer and just dumped at our next stop. The swim lake was nice and refreshing. In general, we enjoyed our short stay and would definitely stay there again if we were traveling through. The only complaint I guess I have is that it cost an extra $5 for me to have 2 pets on the site. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.

I had to type this review while we are still here, so that I wouldn't miss the details. First, and note it well, there are NO SEWER HOOKUPS! My wife assumed that "big rig access" and a pull-through equals full hookups. Live and learn. No laundry in the motor home, no dish washing, and navy showers for me and mom. The kids can go to the bath house, right? Well, the one nearest us is "rustic" with a toilet seat over a 15 foot waste-drop and a ton of flies. The other was by the registration center was dirty and smelled like excrement. It was also next to the system they use to treat the sewage they get, which was full of sludge. They obviously WANT to have a nice place, but it isn't possible. Registration is nice and new. The lake beach is groomed and pretty, but the water level is low and there is a pipe connecting the lake to the fish pond. Really? The kids area has a gold panning area, but it is extra, and the game room was closed by 8. Volleyball is here, but the net sags. Ok for a pickup game I guess. Sites are rock, roads are dust. Big rig friendly is, unfortunately, usually decided by someone who doesn't drive one. Putting a huge rock on either side of a gateway that I have to turn 90 degrees to get into is NOT friendly for a 45 foot rig. If they had charged me $20, I would still have given them a 5-6 for effort, but my tab was $52 AFTER the Good Sam discount! It was $6 extra for showing up at 11 instead of 2, and $5 each for the extra kids. I wouldn't mind at all if they didn't have these issues, but that isn't the case. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

It's a nice campground,but rated it a 7 due to no sewer hook ups. Large sites in the trees. Roads in and out easy for our 40' fifth wheel. Trees are trimmed high. If you like a dark night this is the place. Quiet time is 10pm and it was very quiet at that time. We will go back. We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Check-in seemed to be complicated...lots of forms to fill out and sign. Nice, roomy entrance and office but a 90* turn into the gate to the camping area and a long section of road wide enough for only one vehicle and with low hanging tree branches. The roads and our site were "paved" with good sized rock, rutted and with potholes...definitely need gravel topping. Our site and the long grassy area around it were swampy and muddy. The office didn't open till noon so we were not able to use the store, library or get ice. A lot of money for what we got! We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice entrance, but cramped sites. No sewer. Water hook-up leaked - site partially flooded. Entire campground was, well, less than pretty, although the lake was okay. Overall, a very low-average to average place. Compared to the Willow Park place we left before this, it was fine. But, it is not worth the money and we will not stay here again.

Check in was very involved with much info required for no real purpose. The check in bldg was A-1, the rest of this RV facility was poor. Recent rains left road potholes (very deep) filled with mud. Most of the campsites were not elevated and were sitting in partial water or entirely flooded. Potable restrooms about the park were worse than awful. Two days later the roads were mostly dry except for the numerous deep holes and the crushed rock turned the roads into massive dust generators. Woodalls rating was entirely off base. We would never stay here again. Typical of too many northern RV parks. We are not complainers: we just expect clean facilities, decent roads and dry campsites. Ninty five percent of the 40 or 50 RV parks we visit every year are fine. This one was not! We camped at American Wilderness Campground in a Travel Trailer.
