Rate reflects RPI rate. Nice park, lots of long term residents but sites are kept neat and tidy. No junk laying around. We do not understand why there are no sewer hook ups. Not even for the long term spots. Everyone was having to use their 'blue boys'. We were there for only two nights and probably will not return. - User2209

We made reservations for our week out from Thousand Trails Kenisee Lakes. We drove through the park the day before to make sure we could get our big rig in. After our drive through, we canceled. All the lake front sites are taken; those that aren't taken by cabins are old, permanent residents, some stacked three-deep from the lake. The pull throughs have common utilities and are a bit too snug for big rigs if both have slides. The lake is lovely; the "spa" is large and clean with an indoor pool. They have 20 amp and 30 amp ($2 extra). On the whole, not a bad park, but it just has an overall run-down appearance that was not appealing. - Nillawilla

Last camping of the season. Received Thousand Trail membership with purchase of our new motorhome so thought to give them a try. Was after the "season" so pool and other amenities were already shut down. But the campground looked very nice with lots of open space. This is primarily a membership resort with a few spots available for non-members. Many sites were occupied with "permanent" guests. Club house looked like it could be enjoyable in season. Noted that pool and facilities were quite a distance (300 - 500 yards) away from the sites.
Clean and well cared for. - Tireman9

One of the better 1000 Trails parks. Sites level and well maintained. Have stayed here a couple times. Appears more and more sites are being taken by long term campers and not being used during the week.
Power was good. Since the park is out in the country, local TV and cell phone coverage wasn't very good. - GerMarV

We purchased our newer full time RV living home at Lazydays earlier this year, and with that purchase came 14 nights of free camping at a Thousand Trails/Encore properties RV park.
We tried to use some nights earlier this year at a park in North Carolina and it was terrible! We did not even stay the night as it was not acceptable for us. Thousand Trails has a system where they do not reserve you a site: you show up and pick what's available. If it is really busy and you don't show up early enough you may get a real crappy site.
We had these free nights and had to use them by the end of August if we wanted to take advantage of them. Hey, we're full-timers and two weeks with no cost is a good thing if you can find acceptable accommodations!
So, we found this RV park by chance and it seemed to have good reviews. We did show up on a busy Saturday but arrived at 11:30am so we were able to get a decent site. This park is surprisingly nice for a Thousand Trails. The sites are spacious, the property is huge and it has a small lake on property.
Except for busy weekends with kids, it is very quiet. It is in the middle of nowhere so Verizon Wireless was a problem for us: 1-2 bars of signal strength. If you rely on local television that was none existent. Not a big deal for us.
There are plenty of places to walk around the park to get some exercise and if you are willing to pack up the bikes and drive there are bike trails close by.
The RV sites are both shaded or open and sunny depending on what site you choose. Electric service was fine on our site, water pressure at 60 psi, and sewer located toward the back of the site.
We had no problem negotiating around the park and saw many large rigs come and go. The main road in, Mill Creek Rd., is very narrow as you approach the park. There are some low bridge issues if you come in from the south so be careful and follow the park's website directions. - Howard Jaros
