Nice overnight stay, right off Interstate. Big rig friendly. We camped in a 42 ft motor home, not tight at all. Check in was quick. Water pressure great, electricity stable. Lots of grass for the pets and shade. Gravel sites well maintained. Satellite was good, but over the air was exceptionally clear so we just used those channels. Wi-Fi was excellent! We went to a great BBQ place in town, Parker's BBQ. Walmart close by. Since we got up too leave early, I noticed large street lights up and down the property. We would stay here again if passing though.

Great park. Did not give it a 10 because pads were gravel not concrete and the Wi-Fi was not always great. Lots of green grass, your pets will love it! Friendly check-in; they moved people around so we could stay an extra night. Our 42 ft motor home and towed fit fine. We chose the base camp sites as they have cable, but satellite worked as well. A little expensive, but that is the area. Very convenient to Mt Rushmore, Custer State Park, and cities of Hill City, which was very quaint, and Custer. Water pressure was excellent, electric was stable. Sites we very level. Would definitely stay again.

This campground is everything you hate about a KOA, but it's not one! Lots of rules that don't seem to be abided by or enforced by management. When we arrived they had moved us from requested big rig back in site to pull through. We waited 45 min in a very tight check in area. Because we were right next to rigs already there, we didn't turn on the generator while temps climbed to 90+ degrees. The people in the pull through were still in the pool at checkout time. They tried to move us to a site our 40 ft would have never fit in, but it covered half of narrow road. The sites are very close; you can almost reach out and touch on both sides! The pool is full of screaming kids. Dog park was on a steep hill marked with a sign, beware of rattlesnakes! Rules say no walking between sites, but we saw heads walking beside our coach. Coach next to us left at 6:45 am with quiet time not being over until 8am. Normally I wouldn't care about their rules, but with rigs so close you notice. This older park was built for smaller rigs and is land challenged; it is not meant for bigger rigs they say they can accept.

Nicest state park I have ever stayed in. Long paved RV site, was 93 ft, gravel, picnic area had covered patio table and an in laid fire pit. Unlike other state parks, lawns were manicured; camp hosts were out grooming gravel as soon as someone left. View of Colorado Monument was spectacular. Full hook up 50 amp was only available one night and was really needed due to 98 deg temp. Ranger allowed us to switch to open 50amp site although we had booked 30 and only charged us normal up charge difference from 30 to 50. Power and water pressure were excellent. Colorado River is on site as is a boat launch. We were here to see CO monument and it was so beautiful. Ate dinner in Grand Junction Ale Works just 10 mi. Grand Junction has all regular big box stores, and mall needed for supplies. We would definitely come back.

Do not stay in summer, power is unreliable. Running one a/c and entire park lost power each day. Sites sound long, but they are curved and my Motorhome is not. Would recommend in cooler months with smaller RVs. Grass not cut, seems unkept. Staff not friendly when approached about power problem, host said they do not get paid and are not work campers. Will not stay again.

This park would get a much higher rating if they would clean up a bit and cut the grass. The sites for big rigs are pull throughs in small semi circles, barely got in with our 40 ft motorhome and small Honda tow. Sites are made tighter by strategic placement of big boulders around the campsite. Directions not clear on site entrances, some on left, some on right and thus we had to do a difficult turn around. On the positive, shade trees were at many sites. If you have a tent or smaller trailer there are some lovely lake front sites we could not fit into. We did have full hook ups and 50 amps, great for 95 degree temp. Nothing much in the area to see. This was a stopover for us. Big draw is fishing and trails in cooler weather. Probably would pick another campground if in a large motorhome.

I gave park such a low rating because it was advertised as Big Rig Friendly and it is not, perhaps a 32-34 would do OK. Low hanging branches and tight turns. Also, pads are either just 40 or really usable space is under. No real tent pad either, basically good for smaller trailers. The good, it is a beautiful lake front setting, lots of families and some full hook ups. Although advertised as right off Route 20 it is about 3 mi back to campsites. We would not return. Nothing in surrounding towns except a couple of fast food spots.

I am very surprised at the previous 2 reviewers. Not sure what they missed. This is one of the most beautiful parks where I have stayed with lovely shade trees with Spanish moss, many lots have pavers, outdoor lighting, comfy furniture and a gorgeous heated pool. HHI has so much to offer like beautiful beach, great restaurants, fabulous golf. I would stay here again, I found dog owners to be very respectful. There are bags available and drop cans throughout park. The park is very quiet, restful, and so relaxing! The pad we were on, #359, was very easy to back in, could hold a 45 ft easily with beautiful furniture and landscaping.

The good: full hook up county park unusual, nice dog park and walking path. A real bonus to be there during the Festival of Lights that runs from Nov 9 to New Years, probably the best CHRISTMAS light tour we have ever seen and free to campers! The not so good: We have a 40 ft Motorhome with a 12' 7" clearance and our antenna whips got a real workout with overhanging limbs on the main county entry road. When we mentioned to the campground check in person that she might want to talk to the county about trimming limbs, she blew us off and said if these motorhomes get bigger they will ruin our canopy of trees. Also, it rained, not that heavy, but we had a lake form in front of our campsite as did many other spots, so drainage not the best. many sites were narrow but the person on the phone worked with us to find a wider one, the sites are plenty long enough.

Positives: very nice owners, sites reasonable distance apart; good Wi-Fi and near Woods Cider Farm and Wells Orchard. Negatives: while I would love to rate higher because folk were so nice, the campground had some significant drawbacks which included poor water pressure, low voltage on 30A, dirt, very bumpy, and tight interior roads for big rigs. While we usually like wooded, this was like being in a forest. Would not recommend for 40 ft RV.

This is the finest resort we have ever stayed in, originally an Outdoor Resorts when built. It looks like Paradise with live oaks and Spanish moss. Only a mile from the Atlantic Ocean and one of the most beautiful beaches. The spaces are individually owned but rented by the resort. Tennis courts, pool, and wonderful biking. Class A and C coaches only, any size accommodated. Everyone is very friendly, pets very welcomed. Great restaurants and lots to do. A true destination resort. FMCA honored.

One of the nicest state parks I have ever visited, but very hard to get a site or several days without booking 11 months in advance. We moved several nights to string together a two week stay, but well worth it. Very different than most FL State Parks: lots of trees, shade, full hook ups, a walk/bike/tram to the beach. The beach is sugar white powder sand with water that is crystal clear. This may have originally been a commercial park, but now state owned and operated.

While outrageously expensive, one of the finest Class A resorts. About 9 mi from Key West, beautiful waterfront lot with our own floating dock and Tiki Hut. The staff was very helpful. A nice little dog park as well. We were in a 36 ft motor home, but accommodates all lengths. If in Key West and willing to splurge, you won't be disappointed.
