When visiting Elkhart, this is the place everyone seems to stay. It's a good place to be. Our site was perfectly level and had full hood ups with 50 amp electricity. The owners of this park are always on hand and care about your stay. I commented that our stays at previous parks advertised Wi-Fi but we must have been too far away to get the signal. They changed our site was changed so that we would be very close to the Wi-Fi antenna. We had big storms when we were here and we wondered if it was going to get bad enough that we'd have to abandon the rig and go somewhere safe. If so, no directions were given as to where we should go. We pulled in our slides to reduce our surface area and rode out the storm.

It is an expensive campground, plus you have to pay a gate pass for yourself and auto if camping during the 10 week Chautauqua season in the summer. But, it is worth it to be in Lakeside which is a truly wonderful place. Sites along the back fence are far away from the sewer so I had to use a coupling device to stretch my sewer hose. To use Wi-Fi I had to go to a picnic table near the center of the campground. 50 sites are for permanent residents, 34 for transient visitors. Sites are rather small and not very level.

We stayed here before about 6 years ago. Everything is the same. It's a nice, little campground with good facilities. The mother-daughter owners keep it looking cared for. We suffered from many mosquitoes, so couldn't stay outside the rig like we wanted. Anytime we need a campground in the area of Marshalltown, IA, this is the one we will use.

Sites were narrow. We weren't there on an especially busy time so they spaced out the sites so that no one was right next to us. Good, thoughtful planning. The Wi-Fi didn't work for us so we gave up on it. The antenna seemed to be very close but it still didn't work for us. I don't see any reason to have to return to the Amana Colonies again, but if we do, this is the campground we'll use.

Great campground. It only offers electric service. There are three hydrants from which you can fill your tanks when water is needed. There is a 3 mile paved walk around a public lake only steps away from the campground. The lake offers fishing from shore or boat. Beware, we left the campground with two snakes in our motorhome! I don't know how you guard against them entering your rig, but it's better to know it is possible when staying in this campground. It was the fright of our life to discover them!

Basswood Resort is really just a campground, not a resort; don't get fooled by the name. It's a better RV park than most. They have a huge work force who are mostly work-campers. They keep the place looking nice. Everyone is friendly. The sites are rather small for a place that advertises itself as a resort. I'll stay there again when in the need of a campground north of Kansas City.

For an overnight stay, this small campground was excellent. It was very quiet, our site was level, we had full hook-ups with 50 Amp, sewer, and water. It's in the Passport America book so we only paid $14. The manager, Leon, was exceptionally friendly and helpful. He has three friendly Corgi dogs that love to play and beg. This campground is not listed in the Trailer Life Directory so we're glad we found it in Passport America. It would be easy to overlook it. The campground is less than a mile off I - 70 on the Indiana/Ohio line. You use the last exit in Indiana ( #156), but the road (US 40) takes you back into Ohio.

Jonesburg Gardens looks like a former KOA campground. It has many facilities available. The manager is very friendly and concerned about the welfare of the campers. Our Wi-Fi connection did not work. I did not press the issue. There were some pretty tight turns getting to our site with a lot of leaves and branches hitting the sides and roof of the motorhome. Our site was level and had 50 amp electricity, water, and sewer. It had easy access to I-70.

Really liked having 50 amp service. When the 50 amp breaker burned out in the pedestal, a replacement was installed within an hour. We were there over Memorial Day weekend, the park was super busy but not loud or bothersome in any way. There is a fenced in dog park available where the pooches can even swim if their owners let them. The side yard at our site was not very good, it had too much slope to it, but the parking pad was absolutely level. We will return to Mosquito Lake State Park again.

Upon entering, you have to find your own site and self register. The sites are small and mostly made up of oil workers and families. There are only about 10 sites available for RV's, the rest being tents. The site was absolutely level, with no grass, and very small. The signs say the park is patrolled by Watford City Police, but we never saw that being done. We never felt unsafe, though. This park served our purpose of visiting both units of the Theodore Roosevelt National Park, but the south unit was about 80 miles away.

This campground is in a beautiful setting, overlooking an inland lake in the northern part of Wisconsin. You can catch it from highway US 2. We were here on a weeknight near the end of the season and there were no other travelers in the campground. There were many seasonal rigs on the grounds but not too many people. The woodland setting was very attractive and it appears the place must really have a lot of activity during the summer and on weekends. Our large site was absolutely level and nestled underneath some fir trees. The branches were cut off at a height that did not endanger anything on our roof. We received good TV reception out of Duluth/Superior from our antenna. If going through this area again, we would certainly return to this campground.

This is a small, run-down parking place that fulfills all the needs for a night's stay. The owner is very welcoming and helpful. We had full hook-ups with a long pull-through site. We would return to this campground.

Before talking about the campground, I have to warn RV drivers NOT to take rte. 89 out of Browning, MT. It is narrow, hilly, has many curves, is dangerous, and ends with a 3 mile descent into St. Mary at a 7% grade. The smell of overheated brakes permeates the air. Take 464 out of Browning instead. It's a better and safer road. The campground is OK. It's close to the park entrance and the few stores in St. Mary. It has its own restaurant on the grounds with very good meals. The sites are narrow and perhaps hard to park on and make level, but everything considered, it's a good place to stay when visiting Glacier National Park.

At this park you pay extra for 50 amp and for cable, but it was only $2 for each. The reason given is that some people complained about having to pay for things they didn't use. It made sense and the charges were low enough so it didn't feel like I was being gouged. The Good Sam discount almost took care of the extra fees anyway. One thing that I liked about the site is that it was absolutely level. It was narrow, as usually happens at a private park. That is the only reason I couldn't give it a 10.

I like forested campgrounds and this is a perfect setting. Everyone is very helpful. A previous reviewer said 50 amp service is not available. That is wrong. Many sites have 50 amp. It's not as reliable as in some parks. As everyone began turning on their A/C's when it got hot, our electric meter went down to about 102 volts. Other than having to manage our electrical usage, everything about this campground is good. All square and round dancers will enjoy this campground.

This is still one of our favored camp grounds. The sites are large and very private. The parking pads are level. I wish it was updated with water and 50 amp service, but we love it anyway. It's great for bike riding. You can swim along the beach of Lake Erie or in an inland alcove. There is a mile long boardwalk nature walk, a golf course, a lodge with great dining, and outdoor activities for all ages.

These are some of the narrowest sites we've ever seen. The neighbors sewer hookup is right next to our dining table while our sewer hookup is almost underneath their bedroom. The owners are extremely friendly. It appears to be a well run park. The Wi-Fi works great. Traffic noise from I-90 is very loud, it's only a 9-iron shot away.

It was a Saturday night when we came this park. The place looked full but there were a couple sites available. The manager knew which one was best for us, and he was right. While the park was full, it was not wild or rowdy, just friends and families having fun together. We had no trouble getting level but the ground was uneven and there were trees lining our site so we had to be aware of lower hanging branches. The soil was sandy so we had to make sure our feet were clean or we'd be bringing it all inside with us.

The Woodall's we were using said this park had 48 sites, with 8 having electricity. Completely wrong! There are 90 sites, all with 50 Amp service and water. It is a beautiful campground. A real gem. Anytime we are passing through Chicago and need a campground, this is the one we'll use. It is really terrific.

We camped with our 5 and 3 year old grandsons and they really enjoyed the playground, especially the huge, toy filled sandbox. We also used the outdoor pool as well as the indoor pool. This campground is about 13 miles from Idlewild Park, a mile from a zoo, and a mile from the PA turnpike, so it is well situated. But, the campsites are on the floor of a valley and when it rains the water sits on top and you are left with mud and/or ankle deep water. If you use this campground, make sure it is in dry conditions with no rain in the forecast.

This is an excellent campground with large sites and full hook-ups. We thought it was rather pricey, but it fit our needs very well. The sites are situated so that you park parallel to the road instead of backing in.

Perhaps 4 or 5 sites have water and sewer hook-ups, but most sites are 30 amp electric, only. The sites are large and level. They allow an RV and a tent or two tents on one site. Many people park their boat trailers on their sites. The beach on Lake Erie is a short bike ride away as is the marina. If you have an Ohio Buckeye Card you get a 50% discount Sun - Thurs, and 10% discount on Friday and Saturday. The fun of Geneva on the Lake is only a couple miles away. The staff in the campground office are very friendly and helpful. We were booked for two nights but could not stay for the second night. They refunded our camping fee without an argument. (As long as it was before 1:00 PM.)

I read the earlier reviews about this park and was alert to any problems, but found none. The staff inside the office were not particularly friendly, but they did their job. We will return to this park when we are in the Detroit area.

The website says there is not room for larger RV's, but we have stayed here often. I tell them we have stayed at site 52 in the Mohawk loop, they look it up, and sure enough, we've been there before and they let us stay. We could fit in over a dozen sites without any problem. Some sites have 50 amp service now. We really like this campground and stay here whenever we want to introduce new people to the Watkins Glen Gorge.

I read their website so I knew there would be a charge of $6 per night for other adults staying with us so the price of $60, includes their $12. It was still rather pricey. We were the only ones in the campground on this particular weekend. We were given the site that had a view of the Niagara River. That was a very nice site. We were very busy at the Falls so didn't spend much time at the campground. The hosts appeared to be very friendly but we didn't really have any contact with them.

It was our good fortune to be very busy for the 4 days/nights we were camped at this campground, so that we didn't have to spend much time here. We had site 11, which was the smallest site I've ever seen. If we had pulled our awning out, it would have been over the neighbor's fire ring. The interior road to our site was treacherous with an extremely narrow path over a small creek.

Roscoe Village is a short walk from the campground. There are many recreational activities available such as swimming, golf, soccer, basketball, baseball, hiking, biking, etc. The playgrounds for the young ones look really good. They take reservations starting in January. This is an excellent place to stay for a couple days.

This is a woodland campground, very shady, very hilly. The playground was fine for our 2 and 4 year old grandsons but it was only a couple of back yard swing sets. The pool was not for our kids as it went from 3 ft. to 8 ft. The site for the RV was remarkably level even though we were on a hillside. The next rig was only 10 feet away. We had two grandparents, one parent, and the two small boys in our RV, it cost us over $39 a night. I thought it was way too much for what we got and what I'm used to at other campgrounds. It was only half a mile from the PA Turnpike.

This little park is a real gem. You get 50 amp service, water, sewer, cable TV, Wi-Fi, paved sites and road. All but 4 of the sites back up to the river. There is a covered picnic table and a fire ring at each site. There are no restrooms so only self-contained units are allowed into the park.

This campground had everything we needed. The only drawback was that the grounds were not especially attractive and the soil was very sandy and full of small pebbles. It was a chore to make sure we didn't track too much of the sand and pebbles into the inside of the RV. There was nothing wrong with the campground though. I'd stay there again.

This is a Signature Resort owned by Morgan Resorts. The amenities are wonderful. There is a large clubhouse with a card room, billiard table, 16 seat theater, tennis court, pool, hot tub, 9 hole putting course, full-size exercise room with all the equipment, showers, lounges, etc. The grounds are impeccable. It is definitely a "high end" resort. Luckily, we received two nights free camping. This resort is for Class A motor homes, only.

This is the second time we have stopped at Dutch Treat RV Park. The campground is very good. The site was level. The office person was an owner or manager I think. She was very friendly. Another camper had a health problem and had to stay there for two months and was even hospitalized for 10 days. He and his wife were treated wonderfully by the owner of the camp ground. Every time I visit Holland, MI I'll stay at Dutch Treat.

This could be a "destination" type park. It is really beautiful. Every site is either on the water or has views of the water. Large, paved, parking pads. The sites are very large and very private. Once you are there, your plans for the rest of your trip might change just so that you can spend more time at Trace.
