This park is not big rig friendly. Sharp turns on narrow curbed streets. Fortunately, there were no campers on 30 amp side so was able to maneuver into only site available with 50 amp full hookups. Bring a Y hose adapter as there is one water per 2 sites. Sewer hookups way to the rear or underneath. Office not open but sign says find a site and manager will come around to collect. Did not come by last night. Nice little town with good restaurant. Only four 50 amp sites and two 30 amp sites. Two of the 50 amp sites were filled with 30 amp rigs. No trees for shade as they are on the north side.
The sites are 50 ft and best suited for 5th wheels or trailers as the services are at the rear of each site. Had to remove toad and park along side (plenty of room). Need to check out a key for the water ($5.00 refundable). Sewer way in back needed all of the hoses I had. Nice shade trees. Quiet behind the Motel. Confusing one way signs and entry into site. I would stay there again.
Amenities include water and electric, lake access, playground. Half of the sites would have utilities on wrong side. Mostly gravel sites. A few would have midday shade. No dump station. Mirror Lake is a small lake with idle only speed limit. Lots of playground equipment in the park. Nicely maintained. Good Verizon data and voice connection. Rate is $20 for water and electric. No hookup is $10. No TV available.
Rate is for pull through or lake site. Pull through nicely designed so you do not have to disconnect toad to reach services. Sites are level enough to be comfortable in a motorhome. Guided to site. Plenty of room between sites in pull through area. Three dollars extra for Cable TV. So rate should be $43.
Not good for a big rig towing. The services are at the rear of the pull through so one must unhook the toad to use the full hook up. Few of them are level enough for a motorhome comfortably. We decided to go on to find a better site.
Stay here if you want to get away. No TV, No Verizon, no generator from 8 a.m to 8 p.m. Nice to tour the area and take hikes. We have a 40' MH and had no problems with the pull through sites. Host needs to trim some trees that encroach on the sides of the access road in the parking area. Will scrape any size vehicle.
Access roads smooth enough gravel. We have a 40 ft MH with slides on both sides. We were charged $20 (Passport) for a pull through site. Sites are too narrow with trees encroaching on both sides so we ended up using two back to back sites. Hookups are common to two sites. The park was set up for trailers. The pull through sites besides being too narrow, are not level. Only OTA signal for TV is FOX. Verizon signal good for phone and internet.
Previous review is spot on. These sites are very roomy at 60 Ft CTC. Very popular on weekends. Since this is "first come first served" we had our son park a car in the last available FHU site to hold it for us on Thursday. There are 12 FHU sites, but there are also 10 electric only sites with good grass, that look like they have not been used this year. So with the dump station, that makes a good $15. Nice amenities including basketball, volleyball, lacrosse, swings, jungle gym, etc. We would stay here again.
I rarely rate a park a 10. It is not advertised as a resort so the lack of a pool is not a discount. Let's talk about the pluses. While the entrance road once was paved, the holes have been carefully patched with limestone class 5. The access roads have been smoothed recently. Escort to the site. The sites are all level. Pull through plenty long to keep the toad attached and have the sewer "right there" Good OTA TV reception. Good Verizon telephone and 3G service. Garbage pickup at the site. And of course the view is exceptional. We were in the back row but had plenty of opportunity to see the barges (and flotsam) go by. Bathrooms clean and tidy. We would stay here again.
No one at office. Had no idea if rates on sheet in pocket includes discount. Way overpriced for what you get, but it is the only thing available in the area. Sites poorly laid out, especially the sewer connections. Fortunately we did not need sewer tonight. About 5 of the pull throughs are long enough to keep the toad connected. Bathrooms are painted a dark tan; floors dripped with paint. Cleaning supplies stacked around the water heater. No towels or dryer for your hands at the lavatory. In general, I was not impressed. We would plan to stay elsewhere.
This park is well situated to do the Corinth, Shiloh tour. Parked for 2 nights. Good water and sewer hookup as well as 50 amp service. Level concrete pads about 40 by 25. We used the back in sites which have a tree line behind (to the East so no shade). Yes, there is no landscaping or trees other then the perimeter but there is nothing to hamper the view of the creek and valley. It is mid April, and it appears we are the only itinerant party here. About 5 units seem to be somewhat permanent here taking what shady spots are available. We would stay here again.
Did not stay at this park, but drove by on the way to Lake Chicot State park. I called to get some details. 6 sites have 50 amp service. They were booked up as most sites are yearly rented. Some sites are available for weekend fishermen.
Nice park with nice grass between sites which are generously spaced. Quite a mixture of sites. 26 have WE50S (1-26 somewhat close to the lake). 11 have WE50 (Woods Setting). 15 have WE30 (112-127 On a bluff over the lake and rather short). Remainder WE30 (Woods Setting). Bikes, boats, motors and kayaks available for rent. Nice pool facility was not open yet. Only downside noted is that some of the sites are not level which can be a problem for motorhomes. Reservations suggested if you want 50 amp and water view.
First the good points - Healthy "grass" mix of grass and knotgrass. Sites are long enough to keep the toad connected if desired. A mix of grass sites and concrete pads. Grass sites are firm and did not seem to pond during rains. Plenty of room between sites but no landscaping for privacy. Nice views of the river from the front row sites. At this time of year seldom was there a site used on either side of us. Small playground for children with swing and climbing tower. Each site has a picnic table. Verizon 3g good some days, some days somewhat slow. Did not try Wi-Fi here. OTA reception missing ABC. Cable has ABC but rather fuzzy on all channels. Now the Negatives. BAD potholes greet you as you enter the grounds. Manager says owner does not want to spend money to grade. Just pour in loose limestone which pounds out. Pool area had no loungers. Manager said they take them in for the winter and have not put them out yet. 85F temps now! Directions can be iffy on streets and trips. However, both routes will get you there, but better to go straight until you see the big sign.
$17.50 for Passport America (one night only). Gravel driveways are somewhat potholed, so the 4.6 mph limit is no problem. Nice long pull through sites such that the toad can stay hitched. Railroad did not bother me, but the daily sites are as far away from the tracks as possible.
Could not beat the view in site 49. Interestingly, the site next to us, while FHU had the sewer on the wrong side. Good value. Reserve ASAP to get the best sites. The lakeside sites are held for 7 days or less so we had better luck.
Perhaps the only play in town. WI-FI did not work. Our site had an uphill run to the sewer outlet. Community room seemed to be rented out; it was not available to park users. No storm shelter. No tables at sites. Go slow turning off the highway as there is quite a drop to the driveway. The view was nice however. Nice historic town.
Would rate this park higher but 60 amp service is undersized. With just the microwave on the voltage drops from 114 to 106. Cannot get anywhere near 50 amps without circuit protector cutting off the power. We were in site 33 with beautiful view. Sites on the other side would have a view of the sunset. Lots of Wildlife, Squirrel, Ducks etc. Too bad there is not a US fishing license as I understand the fishing may be good here. Fishing Pier quite close to this site. Rate is 11 with Old Fogie discount.
They are in the process of replacing the cable TV at this time. Some sites have, some not. Over the air signal was OK. Verizon telephone and 3G data service OK. All pull-through sites that were plenty long for any size rig. Raised gravel bed for tenting. Tent sites did not look like they was crowned to shed water. We would definitely stay here again.
For a commercial campground this is one of the roomiest sites we have seen in a long time. While the pull-throughs must be 60 feet, one must unhook the toad from the coach as the services are too far back (OK for a 5er). Gravel roads with grass sites. Looks like it may have been rather flooded after a hard rain. Potholes in the entrance SHOULD be fixed. They have plenty of helpers. A few channels of over the air TV. Verizon was fine.
If you are thinking that you will have access to Orange lake, think again. Orange Lake is a swamp except for a dredged channel that does not come near to here. The lake levels have not been high enough for over 25 years. http://www.gainesville.com/article/20111222/articles/111229828?p=1&tc=pg for details. This park is OK for overnight or an inexpensive Passport site for a few days. The depressing part of the situation are the dry boat shelters rusting at the site. WIFI good. Cable Great. Back to back sites so if full it might be tight.
Do not plan on fishing from the mud flats that are the view from this park. What this park has going for it is the proximity to Cedar Key 1.3 miles. We enjoyed biking there and stopping at the Clam facility on the way. They do have a Blue Grass jam session on Friday and Saturday nights. The tenants and the help are friendly. Great grill/restaurant on premises. You are really packed in here. If you get a reservation make sure you have a site number. Late comers get packed in to driveways and such. It tends to be rather dirty as very little grass and lots of gravel. lakeside sites are very narrow. Not a lot of traffic on the highway at night.
I agree with the earlier posts. Take the trail to the lake to get nice view and reflection of the mountain. If you are in a motorhome using a pull through, go in opposite the normal route and pull the power underneath to have a view of the mountains from your windshield. The showers and restrooms are a long walk from the back in spaces, but are close to the tenting spaces.
This is located at historic milepost 710 (Km 1,000) of the Alaska Highway and was established just after the Alaska highway was complete and the war over as a lodge for the bus tourists to stay. It is now a restaurant/bar/motel/RV Park/Fuel stop. The trees adjacent host an unusually nice little campground. Some sites are pull through with over 70' length. Trees and vegetation separate each site. Plenty of the sites have 30 amp power. At this time the shower house was closed but were advised there were showers available in the lodge. There is a dump station near the exit. The water spigot at the shower house was dry. Free Wi-Fi is available in the lodge and was quite good. Fire rings are available if you get a day without mosquitoes. We did not try the cafe but truckers do stop there for breakfast. To enter the pull through sites, go to the left of the entrance with the stop sign. There were a few potholes as per usual in this country. At $20 it seemed to be a good value in that it included Wi-Fi.
This park is ideal for Class A or B rigs. A 5er would have a view of the street and the fence. Not a lot going on in the harbor as compared to Valdez. One cruise ship comes in per week. You can watch the cruise ships leaving Skagway in the evening. Couple evenings per week they have a Dungeness Crab Pot luck. $6 for the crab cooked to perfection. Evening happy hour get togethers. One really feels welcome here. Personalized escort to the site with expert directions to back into the site. Neighbors may have to move their toad to get in or out, however. Fine dust in the lot tracks in if you do not have a rug.
Stated we would not use the dump so $2 was deducted from the $32 rate. Somewhat of a challenge to get cord in the 15 amp service. We got a pull-through overlooking the lake. Office has some canned goods if you are completely out. Free Wi-Fi on the deck. However, there are two SSIDs the same so it is hard to tell which one works.
I do not give 9 or 10 unless out of this world. No pool so 9 is as close to perfection as this one can get. We had site 11 with 30 amp but no voltage problems. This site has a wonderful view of the harbor inlet and the mountains. Fun to watch the fishing fleet come and go as well as watch them unload at the Peter Pan Seafood processing plant about a block away in the harbor. This site is more suited to a 5th wheel with rear living space for the hookups. Bring a loooong hose for the sewer. I used a 50 foot garden hose for the grey water. The black water will and can wait. Sites 11 and 12 are set up for drive in forward 12 being the one with the better view. By the way, this park has some of the nicest tent spots I have seen for a commercial park. Many of them had wood platforms and all had wooded private spaces. Laundry and baths were very nice.
If you have a large Class A and want to park against the beach area, bring an extension cord as the outlets are going to be ahead of your front bumper. We backed in on the upper level and had perhaps a better view than those on the beach front. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Mosquitoes were no problem as it was driving rain showers when we were here. I guess you can expect it in the rain forest. Nice view of a glacier from the campground. Rate was for Golden Age. I would stop here again as it is convenient to the Portage Glacier activities.
Nice roomy Pull Through sites surrounded with Tall Trees and pine needles. Verizon worked fine here. Allowed us to stay late so we could leave it there until we returned from church. RV wash is $15. Had we known, the best fuel price is about a block before you get there and a free wash with fill to boot.
There were perhaps 10 LONG pull through sites and 20 Back in sites available. Looks like they have blocked off part to reduce upkeep as it does not fill up. Yes, the potholes are still there but it sure keeps the speeders down! Nice shade and tables and fire pits for all sites. BUT the skeeters kept us away from using them. Good Value for the areal
This park continues to be excellent for what it provides. Lacking sewer and water knocks it down two notches. Otherwise it is a 10 for NICE manicured grassy spots. Beautiful landscaping. Pick your own Rhubarb, Raspberries, etc. Nice new tables. No fire rings but can go to the adjacent park and have one. Nice park for the kiddies. Restrooms were clean but need new paint on the floor to tidy it up.
There is NO view of the lake and mountains from the RV sites. Cabins have the prime sites. Internet signal was marginal at site 8 near the office. Nice dock and beach for those who use them. Very limited menu - soup and sandwiches. We were encouraged to take our trash along. I think the owners are getting tired? The mixed berry/apple/rhubarb pie was good.
While very nice I would not rate this as a 10. This park is NOT big rig friendly as there are only 10 spots long enough to be able to leave either the tow vehicle on a 5th wheel or the toad on a MH. Power and water are located way at the rear of the site. Need two hoses to reach. They now have a strong router in the park (at least where we were located). BUT, for much of the day, we had no connection to the Internet because the modem is connected to the same post as one of the sites. Seems someone must have turned it off when they left the site. Why not put tape on that breaker?
Gravel Roads and Sites. Some have some landscaping between sites. Appears Firewood is provided. Wi-Fi for 5 hours. Owner (with attitude) did not tell us the time limit and to log off when not in use so it ran out. Fortunately before the office closed. For the life of me, I do not know why they append the Leisure to the title unless you have leisure because of nothing to do here. Pull through site suitable for big rig only has 20 amp service!
Interior roads smooth gravel. Spaces are back to back with one table for two units. Rate is for full hookup which are few. Barely enough room to put out slides on both sides due to screening trees between sites. Probably 4 to 6 trains per hour on the 2 main lines across Canada. The one across the river is louder than the one just below the park as the horns reflect off of the river banks above. This is not riverfront as there is no access due to train tracks. The view is nice, however.
Variety of grassy Back In sites to 60+ Ft Long and Level. Across the highway from the Railroad. No Tables. Easy access to sites. Two TV stations on our set. Free Wi-Fi. Single large Bathroom with shower and toilet. No Laundry yet but hookups are in the same building. Bathroom not handicap friendly.
Rate is now $10. Put your money in an envelope and put the stub in your window. This park is located 4 miles south of Lakin. For Kansas, this is a beautiful park for the price. Sites are about 40 x 60 with nice prairie grass in late April. Playground with swing, Merry-go-round and bobbing animals. Sites are side by side, so if you back in half of the rigs will have the power and water on the opposite side. There is a row of trees in the back of the sites to give some evening shade. The park appears to be the remains of a sand quarry. The lake is probably the water table seeping into the bottom. Fishing is the only allowable recreation allowable. No swimming, wading, skating, etc. Fishing license is required.
Charged high season less Good Sam. Pool is not open yet. NARROW pull through sites. Had to trim the shrubs on both sides to put out my slides. Can't get to the basement doors with the slides out. This site was level enough to keep the rear tires on the ground. BUT Sewer connection is above our outlet. Only 30 amp connections at our pull through site. No Cable. One station available on antenna. WI-FI is very slow. Tried myspeedonline.com and would not even complete test. Verizon 3g and phone OK. Pass up this town and go on. We were forced here as there was an accident on 260 to Holbrook for 6+ hours which closed the road.
Nicely paved lot with grass strips between sites. Trees are big enough to get some shade. However, the sites are so narrow that we had to jockey to get the tree between slides and still miss the utility post. Pull through just fits a 40 footer without tow. Rating: No Pool -1, Site size -1 = 8
Well maintained gravel park. Owner showed us to the lot and guided us so that we could clear the mature tree. Lots are narrow. Could not open one basement door as the slide brought it too close to the services. Pull through lots are long enough to keep the towed vehicle attached. But the back to back configuration and narrow sites leave no privacy. Pool is clean but rather chilly for our tastes. No showers or restroom at the pool. Rating: Back to Back -1, Narrow sites -1 = 8
Park has nice size trees indicating it has been around a while. The "pull through" sites really are not for a motorhome with tow. The sewer connection is at the rear of the lot by the back of the car. Thus, you must unhook the car and drive it around to the front. The "pull through" sites are really two in a row. Thus if you get the rear site, you cannot reach the sewer if you get the car off the driveway. Then there is no place to park the car as the coach is at the rear of the site. You would have to back out of the site if you wish to leave before the occupant of the site in front of you has not left. Rating: No Pool -1, Sewer Connections -1
Only 2 sites have a view of the Tetons. Unfortunately, most of the sites have the view blocked by the Lodge. Nice gravel sites but are all back to back allowing no privacy. Sewer connections are at least a foot higher than the ground level. Sewage does not go up hill. A big boulder at the end of the service island blocks use of the basement doors. The web site indicates cable TV. None available. ABC was available by antenna. CBS air very snowy. Nice lounge with elliptical machine books, TV with satellite. The hot tub was on end. Looks like it is non-functional for some reason. Passport rate not available on weekends now but not indicated as such on the Passport site. No pool -1. No cable -1. Back to back -1. Sewer -1.
Two Thirds of the sites do not have sewer. All by the river do not. The sites with the best view of the river had grass only by the river. Back to back sites common. Common areas nicely groomed and watered. Wi-Fi near the office. Good Verizon telephone and Aircard coverage.
The previous reviews are spot on as far as being a resort. We seldom stay at a KOA as we usually are sightseeing in the areas we stay. This time we have our 6 year old granddaughter with us. She loves the place. I was not pleased with the spot we were assigned. We had reserved a Deluxe site to have cable. They are very short and not level. The site we were assigned C3 was barely longer than our 40' coach. To level the front wheels were off the ground. We had to cut back a tree in order to put out the slides. The persons behind the desk including the manager do not have a clue. Appears there is no guidance as to suitability for MH types. Make sure you check out the site before committing to it.
Looks like a relatively new park set up for bigger rigs as long as you are less than 60'. Unfortunately, they scraped out the parking spaces and filled them with too little gravel. Granted, it has been a wet spring, but to have the wheels sink into the gravel 2 inches as you enter is unacceptable. The rain goes to the site rather than absorbed by the grass. I have 15 inch planks under the jacks and they kept settling such that I could not level correctly. Some sites are level but some are not. Looks like no effort was made to make the sites level. All sites are pull through. Don't ever expect shade here. The trees they planted look like they are never watered. Some of them are dead or dying. We had good Verizon signal as well as Verizon 3G service. Cable is clear with 13 channels. Rate shown is Passport America.
This is an older campground that boasts mature pine and palm trees and "grass" between sites. Quite a variation in site dimensions but mostly comfortable for spacing. Grass is not watered any more so is rather brown and sparse in the winter months. Nice paved streets and concrete parking slabs with side extension for table and chairs. Picnic tables provided. Perhaps 50% Permanent sites. Very friendly residents. Morning breakfast in Chiki-Hut by volunteers. Some activities. Shuffleboard, Horseshoe pits seldom used but in nice shape. Hot tub at 102, Pool at 80. Monthly rate about $650. Walking distance to Groceries. Closest spots a block from street making for rather quiet surroundings.
This place is fine for touring Savannah. We are in a 40'MH with toad. No pull through sites were available but we didn't need it. We can disconnect in 3 minutes. Looks like it used to be a Mobile Home park as the services are a little scattered. We have a site that is about 60 x 40 with fences on three sides and a hedge in front. Had to pull forward a little to get the power to reach but still room for the toad. Needed 30' of hose. Sewer ended up at the back of the coach but reachable. Appears the site next to me did not have any of these concerns. I chose this site since it has fresh gravel. Good, clear Cable TV was available. Old Town Trolley tours picks up here at 9am and returns at 4pm. Good narrow, paved interior circular road. Rate was Passport America with 50 amp service per their advertised rate. Good 120 Volts shows on meter. The elderly lady (owner) walked us out to the site to assure satisfaction.
Pull through has insufficient entry width to get into site with toad. If you leave your toad hooked up, that is why you want a pull through, most of the sites would require over a 40 foot sewer hose to reach. I have a 20' and two 10's and it was a stretch on the site I got. My toad is at the edge of the entrance road and about 1 foot from the utility pole. We are about 30 feet from and facing the highway (street?). Owner was very snippy indicating we should buy more hose, saying they do the best with what they have! I guess these used to be Mobile Home sites. Evidently they do not want to invest to meet the needs of the customer. Our slide is 4 feet from the neighbor's service pole. Evidently they fill the sites whether they meet our needs or not. WiFi was available at the site. Didn't use it as we use Verizon. Analog cable TV is snowy but had lots of digital channels.
Rate is Passport. Note, their website does not indicate the need for reservations for Passport. Owner indicates probably will not continue with Passport. They are in the process of renumbering sites, so the map is very confusing. Killer speed bumps that you cannot get straight on, rocks the coach terribly. In order to get within 20 ft of the sewer, I had to put the electrical and water on the wrong side. Not much other choice this time of year.
Essentially they spread gravel over the area. No attempt to level. I suppose when it was developed, it was OK for travel trailers. Sites are not very deep. Was originally given a pull through for our 40' with tow. Then asked about Wi-Fi. Had to take a 2 way site near the laundry in order to get it in the rig. Even 20' away it is only "good". It is fast, however. Looks like they have planted a few trees a few years ago. In 20 years they might provide some shade. If it were not the only place nearby we would not stay here again.
Seeing as how in season, this campground has an outdoor and indoor pool, it could rate a 10. I downgraded it for the potholes in the dirt roads to the sites. Nice long pull through. Just a few 50 amp sites so in season, don't plan on one. It was officially closed but they were accepting self contained units as the showers and toilets have been closed for the season. Perhaps 4 rigs there. Watched the cruise ships go by perhaps a mile away. A couple of boats were out at low tide scooping up mussels. At low tide you can walk out on the bars of mussels. I suppose you could just scoop them up and if they open up when cooked they should be good. I wouldn't swim in the water as it is chocolate color from the shallows.
I normally rate a park without a pool at most a 9. Two things brought this one down. Potholes in the driveways, and strong but slow WI-FI. I guess it is a good enough value for the area. We were in 134 with a good view. Some sewers are raised and some at ground level. Very friendly owner.
Rate is due to off season Passport America. WI-FI is strong and fast if you can get connected. The WEP would not work on one of our computers. Transient sites are in the front - 3way 30 amp. Great view! I would stay here forever.
Comments of the previous review are spot on except the Wi-Fi was quite weak where we were parked. Sites are about 35' wide with most of the 3 way sites in the upper area. Nice growth between sites but may prevent extension of slides on many.
Get here before October 11. Nice Setting. Nice maintenance. Marginal free WiFi. We are about 50 feet from the router and one of our computers can't connect. The one that connects gets a fast signal. A swing set etc., for kids but no resort. I would stay here again.
Sites are roomy enough. Transient sites are mostly 30 amp. Pay WiFi is choked to very slow during the day, as they must have one line for all of the campground. Had to reload 8 to 10 times to get a page to load. Cable TV has 2 channels of snowy French stations. Antenna was better but still French. No bus service even though most of the sites were full. Drove to lowertown parking. $17 for all day. I guess if I were returning I would stay here as it has Location, Location, Location.
Sites are gravel - All back In. Services were on the wrong side at the 3 sites by us. No control on the breaker - it is a popout type but trips at about 26 amps. Our rig controls the current but the breaker must be weak. We stayed by the office so we would have one of 3 sites that MIGHT have WI-FI. Found that we have to sit with the computer at the window to get it. Have to go outside to connect. Poor signal strength. No Sewer. Nice arrangement with Grey Line tours to pick up customers at the office for the Hop on Hop Off tour. It was worth the $20 for one day much less the 3 days for the price. If in this area we would stay here again cause there doesn't appear to be anything much better in the area.
Difficult to miss low hanging trees. Speed bumps can't be negotiated straight on. If that weren't enough, the potholes in the road make top speed 1 mph with brakes on. Rate reflects Good Sam. Includes $5.00 tax. One wonders if the tax goes into their pocket? Overnight spots are way away from lake so no view. No 50 amp. Charge $2.50 for cable TV but it is good. WiFi is good. Need access code for each computer. The sites are not well drained, very little gravel on the pad. Looks like a nice playground. I suppose in the summer the place would be worth the price.
I cannot rate a park with only 30 amp and no sewer higher than a 6. Thin grass between sparse gravel pads. Muddy entrance to the pad from the narrow paved access roads. Very little available as far as RV accessories. Nice views of the river for a few if you reserve months in advance.
I don't know why I reserved this place. Perhaps because it says it has a view of arches. Yes, it has a view of the prairie of arches park. You do have a view of the canyon down to Moab. It's a dusty place. No grass anywhere. A full page of rules: one of which says no ATV's ridden in park. They are all over, kicking up dust and clogging the roadways!! No Cable TV or TV available which compared to the rest of the parks in the area, is unacceptable.
I am rating this as a campground and not as a resort. Thus the lack of pool etc does not factor in. Do not be put off if you do not get anyone on the phone. This is a self service register as you get settled system. $15 for 50 amp and $10 for 30 amp service. The area is nicely groomed grass, gravel drives and sites (mostly grown over with grass. Nice trees appropriately trimmed. There were no others here when we stayed overnight. This would be a great place to hold a rally or have a music jam. The showers, while clean had peeling paint but who uses them anymore anyway. It appeared the hot water heater was set rather low but if you used all hot a shower would be comfortable.
This campground used to be called Big Pine and LBL Big Pine. Our GPS found it at Big Pine. The daughter bought it from Mom 3 years ago and re-named it for some reason?? It is a Passport America site so I paid 12.50 plus tax. This is a rather primitive campground with gravel roads and sites. Most sites have 30 amp service but supposedly there are some with 50 amp. The entrance is rather tricky for big rigs. I have a 40 foot MH with toad. I was able to negotiate a few sharp curves OK. I would guess the longest pull through is about 55 ft. We were allowed to leave our toad blocking a trail as they were not expecting anyone to need a spot near us. Peak season is in hunting season as they are not on a lake or have a pool. The office has a few RV oriented supplies and goodies. There is a family restaurant within walking distance that appears to have a good draw. Advertisements indicate kids games but you better bring your own team. We were only the second tenant this evening. Location is near the highway which may bother some but isn't that rather par for the course? Look at LBL Big Pines for older reviews.
This is a beautiful campground in a poor location. It is at the intersection of highway 12 and the main bridge over the river. Trucks use their Jake brakes to stop at the intersection. It is set in an industrial area at least 2 miles from any services such as groceries or dining. Do not come here without a toad. The Highway department has a facility next door that starts their trucks at 5AM! If it were not for the location I would rate it a 10. I was rather put out in checking in as they had assigned the location at the time of my reservation to someone else. Assigned me a place four back from the water. Really, only four sites have a decent view of the water.
This place has perhaps 5 cabins and perhaps 25 sites in what looks to be a years ago farmstead. A few of the sites have shade from very mature cottonwood trees. Sites are quite close together. However, when we stopped, we were the only one in the campgrounds so was no problem. Enough room to put out slides on both sides. Adequate gravel driveways and grass sites that are well mowed. Antique tractor and threshing machine and other old machinery on the grounds. Enter the campground at the old tractor and walk up to the house to register. Located in a scenic area along beaver creek.
This is OK for an overnight stay. It is not a resort. Adequate gravel roads and sites. Each with a picnic table. Each site rather spacious perhaps 50X50. No side by side. It sits above and about a block away from I94 but the noise is not objectionable. There is a very nice supper club (Sabir's) about 2 blocks away. There were only 2 sites available. Most of them inhabited by what looks to be semi-permanent construction workers' trailers. Not objectionable. No showers or restrooms so your rig must be self contained. I suppose you could go to the adjacent Motel to find a restroom. Perhaps there will be shade in 20 years as there are trees about 4 feet tall by each site.
Rate includes Good Sam discount. Were given 2 coupons for Breakfast Buffet. This makes the first night essentially free. Free shuttle to the Ameristar Casino. Took about 20 minutes wait. No lines at the Buffet at 7:30 AM. Beautiful concrete pads surrounded by GREEN kentucky blue grass sod. Picnic table on adjacent concrete pad. Great Cable TV selection. Wireless and Verizon connectivity for internet. Park was well lit. Lounge area open all night. Coffee available in the Lounge. Didn't check out the pool- only 50 degrees upon arrival - 32 when checking out.
Rate includes Passport discount. This park is on the edge of the woods. Some old pine trees around a couple of ponds. Supposedly stocked with fish? No Cable TV but good access to Antenna stations. Verizon internet access was marginal. Sometimes it wanted to connect roaming. Supposedly access to wireless at clubhouse which closes at 9PM. Grass is thin. Typical sandy ground grass attempt. Each unit had light on power pole. Most of them worked. Bathrooms need updating but were clean. Smooth gravel entry but exit had a few wild spots to keep you on your toes.
Activities limited to a walk on the boardwalk to the river. It was interesting to see the swamp flora on the way. Roomy sites. Sewer is extra, 33ft is extra, 50 amp extra. Clubhouse closes at 4PM! Office closes at sundown. NO lights at night. About 6 channels of snow on "cable" TV. Very low water pressure. Sign in shower room "do not remove shower head. It will only reduce pressure for others". Old wooden bench in shower stall.
I had planned to stay at the Prince William Travel Trailer Village nearby but my sister wanted WiFi in the unit to transact some business matters. Since this campground advertized availability of WiFi we called and they assured us we would get it in our unit on our site. Fees about twice as much. As soon as we were parked in the site we tried. No Go on 3 different units. Even with directional antennae. We were courteously escorted to a different site nearby the office. No Better!! When we presented our case to the owner, he discourteously pointed out that others farther away could get connected. So therefore it could not be his system. With my directional antenna I can pick up the weakest signals. Anyway, he did not like criticism of his system so we were told to leave the campground. We went to the Prince William campground and found nicer accommodations and friendly staff at little more than half the cost.
The only thing keeping this from rating a 10 is the lack of TV. Grass is full and well kept. Pads are well graveled. Full Hookups. Passport America rate is great. Yes, there is some construction on one side but they can't help that. Very friendly grounds keeper.
This is a tired campground. It has a nice location next to a nearly dry creek. The grass is almost completely worn off. It rained and so we contended with muddy site. Granted there is lots of shade but if they would fertilize they could have a nice lawn. The bathrooms are very tired. The plywood dividers are white with a pea green sponge effect that looks like it could hide lots of germs. The showers were not clean. One rusty folding chair for two shower stalls. No privacy outside of the shower. They are not into present day economics. At $38 they should accept a credit card. Expect to pay 2.50 per day per air conditioner additional. Unfortunately it seems they do not have much competition in the area.
We thought the rate was very high for just water and electric. We chose this site because of the advertising (and we verified by phone) availability of WIFI at the sites. Any campground that charges these rates and especially a KOA must have decent accommodations to be acceptable. It seemed the management had a don't care attitude. Seems people flock there anyway. No pool this time of year. Activities??? We just stayed over night. Should have found a Wal-Mart.
This is by far the worst camping experience for the winter travel from Florida to California. First off, the WIFI only works in the clubroom. The only TV available is on a TV in the clubroom. The lighting in the park is so poor you cannot safely find your way from the RV to the clubhouse. The restrooms/showers are accessed from the clubhouse that is locked from about 9:30PM to about 8:00AM which makes impossible to shower in the evening or in the morning!! We will NEVER consider this place - worse than dry camping in Wal-mart.
Rate was 22 with Good Sam Discount. Park was about 1/2 full. We were given a beautiful back-in spot at the far end of the park next to a pool with a fountain spraying water. The neighbor's Pea Fowl roam the grass keeping the insect population under control. We have stayed in perhaps 20 campgrounds this winter from Florida to California and this rates right next to the best. Even though we rarely use one, a spa or pool would make this a 10. Note: the FREE wifi reaches the inside of the coach at the far end of the park.
Concrete Sites. All drive through. No shade, no shrubery or landscaping. WIFI is off and on. Don't rely on it. Must leave $5 to get key to bathroom. Then you have to wait till 9 am to get the deposit back. Some noise from the freeway about a block away. Clubhouse is the living room of a trailer house. 4 bathrooms with showers. OK for overnight. Passport for one night only.
This older park has converted to all being completely filled with older rigs on individually owned lots. We arrived mid-November and were told there was nothing available as were all individually owned. Do not plan on using this park.
