The rate is Passport America. The gal behind the counter was very pleasant. The one unisex restroom/shower (you need a key) was in one of the motel rooms, and it was clean, secure & useable. The cable was good. The Wifi did not work. The campground is directly behind and next to a motel. We would not use the word campground, but more like trailer park with a few RV hookups available. There are many old, very run-down, permanent trailers & mobile homes in the park. We had no table & the spot we were assigned was very narrow at the back, with an embankment to the electric on one side, and an embankment to a shared water source on the other. It was a challenge to level. The weeds were 3 feet high throughout the park and at our site. Roads are crushed gravel and sites are weeds, grass & some dirt. There is a lot of junk stored on the property. Trains run next to the property & you are under the flight path of the air station. We would choose another campground next time.

This small campground is in a very convenient location in Clinton. We loved the senior rate. You can drive a short distance to get the Metro at Branch Station, which will take you into the D.C. area. You pick your site here and then go out of the campground, down the road and through another part of the park to register. It is not a short walk. The water hookup was in an odd spot, but the water was good, as was the 30 amp electric. The heavily wooded sites were partially paved but most were super small. Roads were paved also. There is plenty of privacy. We picked up many local antenna TV stations. The bathrooms were unacceptable & beyond being able to be really clean. They need to be gutted & totally redone. The men’s shower was so bad that men were using the only women’s shower, which is secured with only a shower curtain. The dump station was a very odd mechanism and the tank overflowed once we began the process of dumping. It was beyond awful. The bathroom and dump station problems pull this rating way down. We will look for another solution next time unless the bathrooms are redone.

Some of the road and sites are pretty tight to maneuver here. Get good directions to your site. We loved that free buses run back & forth to the amusement park and Chocolate World. You can also get a free bus connect to go to the gardens and the Hershey Hotel. Admission to everything can be purchased at the campground office for a big discount, which is good as the campground was overpriced to us. The restrooms near us were new, ample and clean. We only had water/electric/cable hookups (no sewer) but they were good. Roads are paved, but sites are gravel. Cabins are available if you have family joining you. The loop we were on had many trains passing very close all day & night & that was a big negative. The staff was super pleasant. When we pulled up to our site, we were concerned about some low hanging branches, which they quickly came over & trimmed for us. The campground has a nice atmosphere. We would stay there again, but not near the railroad tracks.

The grounds of this family run campground are beautiful with many grassy, water front (large pond) sites. The pond is stocked and no fishing license required. The campground is peaceful & the owners are mowing continually. Water, sewer & electric were good & we were able to pick up a few local TV channels. The owners were friendly & anxious to make our stay enjoyable. The restrooms were clean but need updating. Roads were shale & dirt and needed grading or paving. We had problems in the small laundry room & reported it and they seemed anxious to attend to the issues. The game room was pretty much closed down. They had weekend activities that were fun. The WIFI had a fee and we did not use it. We liked it here and would return.

This is a newer campground with mostly open sites, although a few have some shade. It is just 1-2 miles off I-95. Take it slow at the entrance as it is a bit odd turning in. The bathrooms/showers are modern and clean. There are several pull-through sites that are long enough for a motor home and towed. Water/sewer/electric/cable were all very good. Most of the roads are paved (some sand) but the site pads are sand, which is pretty messy. The grass was very tall at the sites, but each site has a lovely newer picnic table. Laundry room has newer appliances and is very clean. The pool is lovely. There is a catch and release pond. It is necessary to back over or drive over a curb to get to your site, but they are lower, soft-edged curbs and it’s not too bad. If the grass were cut and the sites were paved, it would be a solid 10. We liked it here and will stay here again.

The fee includes the rate plus $9 Reserve America fee plus a $5 out of state fee. We camped in the H (Heron) loop, so this review is for there. The roads are mostly paved. The sites are huge & open, with gravel & grass. Electric is good, but towers are set very far back in the site. No water or sewer at these sites, but water sources are plentiful on the road and there are dump stations as you leave. Our Verizon phone & Hotspot worked well & we were able to get a couple of local TV stations. This loop is a fair distance from the other loops, the marina, beach, store, laundry & recycle/trash areas. A large body of water called Eel Bay is about 100 feet behind several sites, but that area is too heavily wooded for access to or viewing of the water. That is unfortunate. Bathrooms were pretty clean & updated. We loved 2 private facilities labeled wheelchair accessible with toilet, sink & shower. The nature center was small but interesting and daily activities for it were posted in the campground. The butterfly house was nothing special. Every trip from the mainland to the park will cost $2.50 (car only) over the bridge. Be sure to take a right out of the park & drive down to the small community of Fineview as it is beautiful! We liked it here and would stay again, but we want the “F” loop next time.

Be sure to follow the signs to go straight to Campground Check-In before you turn down Campground Road or you will travel miles out of your way on a bad road. Very few river view sites are available. Most sites are on grass and maybe over a curb to get in. The restrooms/showers need a serious upgrade & cleaning. Our site was $25 plus a $5 out of state fee and $9 Reserve America fee, so $39 which is high for an electric only site. The roads inside the campground were paved and very good. The location to the Eisenhower Lock is excellent and the lock visitor center will give you a number to call to find out when a big ship will come in to watch. The dam project has a lovely visitor center also with a great view. No TV reception but our Verizon Wifi worked. It was OK here, but we would check around for next time.

Our rate was for water and 30 amp electric only (no sewer). The campground is walking distance to a lovely beach park on Lake Champlain and to the Burlington Bikeway which is part of the Champlain Bikeway. We casual bike and found it very beautiful and enjoyable. You can take a short bike path ride to the Burlington waterfront. Sites are mostly grass and have a fair amount of shade. Campground roads are terrible. Water and electric were very good. Restrooms are inadequate for the number of sites, plus cleaning them at 8AM was poor planning. We did like it here and would return.

This campground is in a large grassy area. Sites are grassy with some having a bit of gravel. Roads are gravel. Water/sewer/electric & cable worked very well. We could not get WIFI at the site at all and our Verizon Mobile Hotspot did not work very well. The location is perfect for touring Stowe and Waterbury. The sites seem to be close together, but the owner places you so that you have excellent space between units. There is plenty of room for maneuvering. The restrooms and showers need some serious attention, updating and deep cleaning. We liked it here and would stay again.

They do offer a 10% discount on rates for Good Sam. The water/sewer/electric were all good. Roads and sites are mostly dirt with some gravel. Most sites have a good amount of shade and a fair share of bugs (bring your spray). The cable worked well, but we could only get Wi-Fi in the activity room or laundry room. Wi-Fi worked very well in those areas. Laundry area was very clean, as were the restrooms. Showers were $.25 for 10 minutes. Owners provide printed directions for area drives which are well done. They work with you if you need to make a change. Most RV sites are pretty close together. There is a nice camp store on premises. We liked it here and would stay again.

The WiFi & cable are excellent here as is the staff, who were ready to assist in any way they could. The bathrooms were very tired and outdated and needed a good deep cleaning. Showers were free. They had a Good Sam sign on the window, but no longer offer that discount. They do offer a military (including veteran) discount. The pool looked in good shape. We did not get an escort to our site, but were given the opportunity to look over sites and pick the one we wanted. Lots of mowing going on. Some 50 amp sites were available, but they did not have cable. It was a good overnight stop and we would stay again.

We stopped here on our way to Maine as an overnight. It works for us as the park is not crowded so there is plenty of room to pull in and not have to unhook. The water/sewer was good. Only 30 amp service is available. The Wi-Fi works best in the laundry room, otherwise did not work for us. Restrooms/showers are clean but dated. Park is not far off the highway, which we liked. We were here directly after the Tropical Storm Arthur and while there were some puddles, it was not flooded at all. If you come, take a walk to the top of the hill where the flags are as you can see for miles, including the harbor. We would stay overnight again.

This is a nice campground and the closest to Acadia National Park, and it is reasonably priced. They do not take reservations or credit cards. You drive in, pick your spot, set up and then register. Lots of types of sites are in the park. The best choices are right about check-out time, at noon. We had a water, sewer, and 30 amp site, which all were good. The restrooms were clean and the laundry was too (only $1 to wash, $1 to dry/load). Some sites are in the open and some in the forest. Leveling can be challenging. We had a site near the laundry and the free Wi-Fi worked well, as did our Verizon data device. No cable, but we got some local stations with antenna. The campground is on a mountain top and you can see local water from spots in the park, but it is not waterfront. Local free bus service takes you to the National Park and to Bar Harbor throughout the day. We liked our spot and the campground. We would stay again.

We had one of the 30 amp electric with water sites for our price. All the sites are in wooded areas and are either grass or gravel with dirt. We could not get any TV reception at all. We did not find a lot of close-by area activities. This is a campground, not an RV park. The campground did offer waterfront Searsport Harbor on the Penobscot River access, not ocean access. When tide is out, the beach is very rocky. We did not see any tidal pools as advertised. The roads are gravel & could use grading. Restrooms & laundry area were very clean. There was a resident wood artist, but we did not take advantage of visiting with him. We thought the rate was a tad high for this campground. The campground was OK for overnight, but we would try another if in the area again.

Nice campground for an excellent Passport America price (for 30 amp service). Full hookups, including cable and free Wi-Fi, were good. Restrooms were very clean. Park staff very friendly and helpful. Grounds were well tended. Small store in the campground had lots of choices. If the roads and sites were paved, it would deserve a 10 rating. We would stay here again.

We liked this park. Our rate was Good Sam for 30 amp service, full hookups including cable and Wi-Fi. All the hookups were good. The park was clean, pleasantly landscaped, and nicely laid out with paved roads, which we like. Sites were not paved and not super level. If they were paved, we would rate it a 10. The office staff was very pleasant. The restrooms were clean, as was the laundry, which was reasonably priced. The park is a short drive outside downtown Lake George. Best deal we found. We would stay again.

This state park is beautiful. The roads need some serious work, especially the campground roads, which are terrible. We appreciated the 50 amp electric service, which was good, but the park has made itself a short-term-stay-park for travel trailers and motor homes due to the lack of water and sewer at the sites. That is too bad. The sites are dirt, but the roads are paved with serious potholes. There is a beautiful golf course in the park and a beach-type swimming area in the lake. If the roads were repaired and water/sewer added at the sites, the park would be full all through the season. We would stay again for a couple days.

This rate reflects a Senior discount (appreciated!) and a $10 change fee when we had to change dates. We were in the loop numbered 1-50, and there were cabins and a yurt. The electric was good, but we would have appreciated water and maybe sewer. The bathrooms were clean. The roads were pretty tight, but they were paved, as were the sites. The sites were heavily wooded, not too level and our loop was not big rig friendly at all. Travel trailer or smaller class C would be OK. TV antenna reception was OK. The park is beautiful, but the campground was pretty empty. but I think they would be busier with water and maybe sewer at the sites. It was good for our overnight and we would stay there again.

The road into this campground is steep with a few speed ditches. It is gravel/dirt, but if you go slow you should be OK. We did fine. The park is clean & nicely landscaped, hookups are good, staff is super friendly & helpful. Hookups are good, including cable. The free WiFi did drop us occasionally. There is plenty for kids to do with a heated pool, game room, and playground. Do take a look at your site as some are more level than others. There are some permanents but everything seems pretty well looked after. If the road in was paved we would give it a 9 and if they added paved roads too we would give it a 10. We liked the campground and would stay there again.

Once you understand this is a campground & not an RV park, you can appreciate the positives. It is very close to the Gettysburg visitor's center and many monuments. We loved that. You can camp here with your horses. We heard you can tour Gettysburg on their horses & we saw lots of parties go out, but we did not try that out. The water, sewer & electric were very good. Each site has a picnic table & fire ring. They are super helpful in the office. The laundry was clean and so were the bathrooms. The roads are dirt & gravel and the sites are gravel & grass. The sites are just not level so bring aids to help get as level as you can. If you can't manage to get level, the office will try to place you in another spot. We would give it a 9 if the sites were level and a 10 if the site pads were paved. Our rate was the average for Passport America for 2 days and Good Sam for the 3rd. We liked it here and would stay again.

We stayed in the lower campground only which are large fields with random water/electric hookups. Water was good but a fellow camper said the polarity was reversed on the electric posts. We have a surge guard/RV power protector that solved the problem for us, but you may want to watch this issue. Lower sites have no sewer but a dump station is available. Restrooms were clean to start the day, but after a local sporting event at the field, they were very messy. The campground was pretty quiet & we liked that. We appreciated the Passport America rate & used the campground as a home base for local explorations. We would stay again for that rate.

This was our first stay at J.C.Cooper/Satterwhite. Our rate included a $6 senior discount. We had a waterfront site with electric, no sewer. The water hookup was a good 100+ feet from our unit, so therefore unusable. The site was softer dirt and rocks with a packed gravel area for the picnic table and fire ring. The 50 amp service was good. The roads are paved but turns are pretty tight. It was a hard maneuver to get into our site. Bigger rigs might have serious times getting through. There are not enough restroom/shower facilities for the number of campsites or the distance to them. Our site had a good view, especially for the rate, and we would stay again.

This is a nice State Park type atmosphere. We stayed in "F" loop, where there was no 50 amp service, but the 30 amp service was good, as was the water. The restrooms were OK, but could use a good update. They were pretty buggy. Our rate included a senior discount of $6 and we felt the rate was great for a waterfront site. Some sites are waterfront, some waterview and some off the water completely. The road in is paved, but sites are dirt and gravel. Some bigger rigs would not be able to get level in some of the sites. We liked it here and would return.

This is a very nice family run campground that is not far at all from I-95. The water/electric/cable were all very good. The pool was very clean. We were escorted to our site which we always love! The staff was very pleasant & friendly. The dirt road in is bumpy, but not unmanageable. The bathrooms are individual with showers that were absolutely modern & spotless. What a pleasure! Our site was mostly sandy and we saw lots of ants. That is the only issue that keeps us from rating it a solid 10. We would stay here again.

Nice, quiet state park during the week. Very friendly & helpful staff/ranger. Restrooms/showers are spotless. Water and electric (no 50 amp) are good. A few nice fishing spots along the river. The campground road is even and paved, but a little winding. Sites are gravel/sand with some fairly level and others you'll need to block. Each site has a nice picnic table and fire ring with grate for grilling. Not far from I95. We would stay here again.

This is an awesome Florida State Park. There are 2 campgrounds here, the river loop and the beach loop. We stayed on the beach loop and toured the river loop. The river loop is heavily wooded/shaded with the large sites having growth between them and a fair amount of privacy. You can walk to the river at the end of the campground. We stayed at the beach loop where the sites are not shaded at all and fairly close to each other, but there is plenty of room for an awning at each site. Water pressure was good, but the water had a sulfur odor to it. No 50 amp service at the beach loop. Local TV reception was good and our Verizon WiFi worked great. We stayed in site 9 which was next to the beautiful, brand new boardwalk out to the Atlantic beach area. It is a great site if you have a rear window as it looks out on the dunes and the ocean. Sites 8 & 9 have the best views. The ocean beach comes with some warnings, like dangerous currents and marine wildlife, but the sand is just beautiful and so is the view. The rest rooms in the beach loop are modern & very clean, with a special private handicap accessible room I appreciated to use with my young granddaughter. Be sure to tour the fort ($2/person). It is a step back in time, very well maintained. Engage one of the interpretive guide folks as you will have a historic conversation that might have taken place in the 1800’s. We loved it here and would stay again.

Our rate is the Federal Senior Pass rate. We arrived with a reservation, well after dark and it was very, very dark. There are no camp hosts, but we had a reservation so we had prepaid. The campground was pretty empty for the one night we stayed.The restrooms were clean enough, but there are no showers. There is no water hookup, but there is a dump station. You come up on the entrance pretty fast, so come in slow. A camp host would be a big plus. The sites were level and paved, as was the campground road. We would stay overnight again.

We picked this park to visit family nearby. No discounts are offered if you live out of the tri-county area and the price was high for what the sites offered. Water/sewer/50 amp service was good. Road was paved, but sites were grass and sand. Sites were level. There is a dog park near the campground. We prepaid and never saw a camp host, anyone at the gate, or anyone patrolling the campground on a Friday night. It was quiet. Restrooms/showers were OK. Antenna TV came in very well. We could see the interstate, but did not hear traffic noise. We would stay here again, but think the price should be lower.

Our rate was for off-season/Good Sam. We had a waterfront site, which I recommend. Awesome sunset views! Waterfront sites sit at a seawall which is a good spot to snorkel. We saw lobster, manatees, stingray, small tropical fish, sea cucumber and a small sand shark from the seawall. Restroom/showers are brand new & beautiful. Some sites are not as level as others, but not unmanageable. 50 amp/water/sewer/cable were good. Spray for ground bugs as we had a major attack inside of some kind of ant within an hour of setting up. There are small efficiencies to rent if someone wants to come with you & you don't have room. Many sites have a cement pad and roads are paved. Clearly work is being done to improve the park & that is always good. Sea grass odors can be overwhelming at the waterfront sites. We would stay here again.

We stayed here to visit family in Gainesville. Speaking only to the issues of the campground, not one of the better Florida State Park campgrounds. Entry roads, turns, sites and trees are not especially big rig friendly and might be more suited to pop-up trailers or tents. The trees and bushes around the campground roads need trimming. The road is paved but needs repaving. The sites are sand and rock. Hookups were OK and restrooms were dated but clean. Our rate was Senior Florida Resident. We would stay again if in the area, but only because it is the only place in that area.

Great park with easy access off I-75. Hookups were good, restrooms were clean and we had an experienced escort to the site, which we always appreciate. Some shady spots and some sunny spots. There is a lovely community room with a book exchange, some games and a "living room" set up. Very pleasant host. Pool was clean. Our rate was Passport America and they prefer cash for that rate, which was fine with us. We loved it as an easy, economical, clean & pleasant stopover. We would stay again.

Nice campground with a very pleasant staff. Hookups were pretty good except they'd had a lot of rain and almost all towers, water and cable were surrounded by water, which made hooking up problematic. They were working on the entrance when we were there. We found it easy in and out. Restrooms were very clean and the showers were individual rooms, very clean also. Picnic table at all sites, some placed on concrete slabs. Roads and sites were gravel. The park is situated on grounds which were a civil war battlefield, according to the park literature. That was interesting. Street names are both Union and Confederate officers. Very glad both sides were represented. Many shady sites. Some permanents. We would stay here again.

This was a lovely RV park, not far from the interstate and Mammoth Cave National Park. Restrooms and showers were super clean. Hookups were very good. The landscaping was exceptional with lots of lovely flowers. Heavy gravel at the sites and on the roadway. There was some occasional train noise and some nasty biting flies which brought our rating from a 10 to a 9. Our rate was Good Sam. We were very comfortable there & we really liked it. We would stay again for sure.

We picked this campground due to its proximity to family we were visiting. The staff was very friendly and gave a nice map/list for out of towners for local businesses. The restrooms were clean and the laundry area was a good size and totally useable. The hookups were also good. We heard some train whistles later at night and the grounds are situated behind a fire station and next to a highway, so there is a noise factor, but it was not bothersome when we stayed. Each site has a picnic table and there is a group area for a fire. The geese are plentiful and fun to watch, but careful where you step! We enjoyed our stay and would return.

We needed to camp here to have access to a facility nearby. The workers were very friendly. The hookups were good, restrooms clean and laundry very usable. Our site was not too level and we prefer paved roads in a campground, which they do not have. Our site was not paved. We don't have kids or dogs, so can't speak to those matters, but there is a lovely pond area with a wooded hiking trail within the property. We were happy to have a pizza delivered to the site, which the office helped us with and we enjoyed the RV Hall of Fame nearby. We would stay here again if in the area, but it would not be a destination campground for us.

This campground has a lot of loud late night activity. Large loud social groups outside, and teens running up & down the roads yelling to one another. We should have used a water filter as the water at the site was rusty (in color, smell & taste). Some concrete site pads are available, but otherwise the roads and sites are dirt, which can be very soft & muddy after a rain. The landscaping is generally neglected. Lots of anthills are at every site. A teen in a golf cart leads drivers to their sites, but does not have enough experience to be effective, even leading bigger units into sites from the wrong direction. Staff was pleasant and gladly answered questions, and the country setting could be beautiful, which is how we came up to the "3" rating instead of "1". We would not stay here again.

Sites are gravel pull throughs with a small cement patio, an area of grass, and good hookups. Looked like quite a few permanents toward the back of the park, but no problems at night. No cable TV, but the local stations came in fine for us. There is nice landscaping. The pool was clean and so were the restrooms. WIFI worked well. Our rate was Good Sam, but still seemed high for an overnight stay. Staff was very pleasant. We would stay again.

Our rate was for a site without sewer. We loved this campground. Paved roads with gravel sites. Nice spacing between sites with beautiful grassy areas and nice well trimmed trees throughout. Restrooms & showers were modern and clean. No cable, but local stations came in fine. Our Verizon 3G worked well. Camp hostess was personable and so helpful! We loved it here and wished we could have stayed longer. Best deal in many overnight stays for us. We would return.

A reasonably priced overnight stop with good hookups, including cable. Wi-fi is pretty iffy. The park was not crowded, and we were able to pull through one spot into another, leaving part of our unit in the first spot, so we did not have to unhook. The space was very generous in size. The restrooms/showers are very dated, so seemed less than sparkling, but were pretty clean all-in-all. Easy off the interstate. We would stay here again.

This is a basic overnight stop. They have a pool & hot tub we did not use. It rained the night we were there and our electric tower was in a puddle of water. We had a nice long pull-through and did not have to unhook. We used the laundry which was small & hot, but functional. We had cable and the Wi-Fi was great. Nothing is paved and repeated rains have left the roads and sites very pitted and mushy. The staff was super pleasant & they offer a chuck wagon for breakfast & dinner with a limited menu. Overpriced for an overnight stop (we got the KOA card 10% discount).

This place is very convenient to see Mt Rushmore & for riding in the mountains of the area. The camp host was pleasant & helpful. The water/sewer/electric/cable hookups were good but we could not get the Wifi to work at all. The sites were very close together and close to the road, but traffic was not heavy. Keystone, the town nearby, offered a nice mountain train ride and other touristy things to do. It was a tad expensive for the type of campground, but we would stay here again.

The fee reflects the $22/site fee, plus the $15 park entrance fee, plus the $7 reservation fee. We camped in the Blue Bell campground, so no water or sewer at the site. The electric was good, the restrooms super clean, and the hosts very pleasant and helpful. The road through this campground is not designed for larger units and most of the sites have a very deep slope. Sloping may be front or back or as ours was (#33) to the side, so much so that we could not get level. The pad for the trailer was graveled pavement but the whole site was severely sloped, to the point it felt like a fun house. Not our speed. It is a beautiful park, with many very winding roads, beautiful vistas and sharp curves. We enjoyed the park and staff, but would not camp in Blue Bell again.

Convenient location near the Buffalo Bill Center and not too far from downtown. Good hookups but we had no luck with the Wi-Fi. The roads are gravel, but our site was concrete and we had a nice concrete chair. Our cable was hazy. A bit on the expensive side. The sites are very close together and the campground is laid out in an odd way. Picnic table, but no BBQ grill. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The rodeo in town was a lot of fun, and they can pick you up at the campground. We would stay again.

A beautifully landscaped and laid out park with wide paved roads and gravel sites. Your rate depends on type of site. Next to a National Forest for a short hike. Walking distance to town, museums, and visitor's center. Excellent hook-ups, spotless restrooms and showers, and clean laundry. Big rig and family friendly. Very pleasant staff who worked with us when we needed to extend due to a family emergency. Good Wi-Fi & cable. Just a few minutes from the West Entrance to Yellowstone & the Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center. Free coffee, tea, hot chocolate offered each morning. We loved it here and would stay again.

Staff was very pleasant & helpful and the hookups were good. The restrooms/showers are clean & nice as individual rooms. Roads & sites are gravel and the sites for big rigs are pretty close together. The sites at the river are grass, but seem to be roomier. There are a few long-term campers, but not unusual for KOA's. Workers were busy the whole time we were there. The WIFI worked beautifully. It's a perfect stop to visit the National Park Service Grant-Kors Ranch & other local museums. We would stay here again.

Very nice campground in a beautiful mountain setting. Hookups were very good and restrooms/showers were especially clean. Staff was very helpful and gave us some good local information. Pool was clean and warm. Lots of room for big rigs, but no TV reception and no cable. Great for overnight. We would stay again.

This is a beautiful park with paved roads and sites. The office people were super pleasant & helpful when we had a problem with our RV and we had to stay day-to-day waiting on a part. They gave us great advice about local stores & attractions. The hookups were good; although, the water pressure was pretty low & each site has a picnic table. The dog walk area is just outside the entrance. The restrooms/showers were spotless. There is a nice "trade" library and BBQ grills can be used at the clubhouse. The laundry was spotless & reasonable. The grounds are beautiful & well-kept with lots of attention to detail. There are a few signs around, reminding people to use common sense, but nothing out of the ordinary. They don't want dogs walked inside the park, and dog owners who do not responsibly clean up still walk their dogs in the park. We liked the dog-walk rule & appreciated the beautiful environment in this very convenient location. We did see big rigs get in & out, they just had to go slow. Remember it is only cash or check, no credit cards. We loved it here and would return!

This is a family/kid friendly park with lots of kid activities (some activities with fees). This campground was established in the years when pop-up campers and small campers without slides were popular. The sites and roadways are super tight and there are few 50 amps hookups. Not all sites have cable. The restrooms/showers were overused when we were there and needed some serious maintenance repairs. There are only a few spots to adequately park big rigs. The staff was very friendly and helpful. If you have kids and want to make them happy, they will love it here. You can go into Seattle downtown via a bus/light rail trip if you prefer not to drive and the bus stop is right at the KOA.

We loved this park for how nicely it is laid out and the detail to beautiful landscaping. The hookups are excellent, Wi-Fi worked very well and cable was good. It is a great campground for the more mature aged campers, including if you have dogs. As others mentioned, do not take the GPS route from the north through the middle of town. Super steep roads through residential areas. The super pleasant lady in the office gave us oodles of information and must sees in the area. We would stay here again.

This is a very large campground in a heavily forested area. The roads are paved but very tight to maneuver with a larger unit. Electric & water hookups are good. SOME areas may have 50 amp service, cable, or sewer, but ours did not, so pay attention when you make the reservation. The campground is lovely as a forested type, but be aware it is not a beach type of campground. The beach is available by walking under the HWY101 bridge. Restrooms were acceptably clean, but more facilities are needed. Our site was very overgrown, & the parking pad needs repaving. There was good privacy between sites. We would try another park next time.

This is a beautiful campground on a bluff above a gorgeous coastal beach that can be accessed by road or hiking trails. The staff was very friendly & helpful. The hookups were good. Some of the restrooms/showers were newer, the ones near the playground need some updating, but they were all pretty clean. The roads are nicely paved. The sites have older paving and some are not very level. Our site seriously needed a mowing, we did have cable but no sewer. It must depend on your site selection. Sunsets are incredible. We would return.

The campground setting is very beautiful, with sites set among redwoods. The hookups were good. We did hear HWY 101 noise. The restroom floors needed a good cleaning and paint job. We just stayed one night and took a ride over to Patricks Point State Park, which was a brief but very beautiful visit with short hikes to outstanding coastal scenery. Be sure to see the lighthouse in Trinidad too. Getting around inside with the RV is super tight and the roads need some serious grading. Because of this and the restroom issue, we would try another park next time.

This is a decent place to stay for the Passport America rate, but the park is just pretty worn out. The hookups were OK (no 50 amp), but watch for spiders. The roads are in disrepair and the restrooms/showers need more attention. Our site had great shade and was close to the restrooms/laundry area. The space for trailers is gravel and the area around the campsite has lots of overgrowth. Take a walk across the road to see the Grandfather redwood (free) and the house made from one log ($1). We would stay overnight only again for the PA rate.

Our rate reflects the KOA discount card plus our choice of no sewer site, but we had water, electric, cable and WiFi. It is a big park with many choices for types of sites. We took the tour into San Francisco and were very impressed. Although costly, it saved a lot of driving, tolls and parking fees plus our guide was a native and had so much great information given in an interesting manner. We saw lots and lots of San Francisco! The park is very kid friendly with many activities for the younger crowd. The park needs a better bathroom situation for the more remote sites and cabins. If that were improved, we would rate it a solid 10. We would return.

Be sure to follow Coyote Valley driving instructions to come in as even our RV GPS wanted to take us to the wrong exit off 101 and that cement wall would have been a major barrier. This park is very nice with cement pads, paved roads and excellent hookups. Nice to have a guide take us to the site. The restrooms were clean and the clean individual shower rooms were a plus. Pool and jacuzzi are well kept and landscaping is lovely. There was some occasional train noise. The WI-FI did not work at all and we did not have a picnic table. If we had those 2 things, this would have rate a solid 10. We would return.

This is a nice park with spaces along a small "seasonal" river. The roads and sites are gravel. Pay attention to the instructions they provide for coming in as your GPS will bring you in down a very steep road, & their instructions bring you in a better way. The hookups are good, and each site has a picnic table. Many sites back up to the small river & have some shade. Be advised this campground is about 1/2 hr drive to the south gate of Yosemite, but is nearly a 2 hr drive one way to Yosemite Valley Floor & 2 hrs one way to Glacier Point, both are must sees. The road is winding, mountain cliff almost the whole way. We liked it here, but if we return to Yosemite, we will try to camp closer to the Valley. We had a AAA discount.

This park was good for an overnight stay. Office staff was pleasant. Sites are concrete pads, some with shade. Pool/jacuzzi area was filled with kids and they kept the bathrooms pretty wet. Laundry area was clean. You can hear train horns nearby. Several tractor trailers were parked across the street and you could hear when they started up. Hook-ups were good. We would stay overnight again. Our rate reflects a Passport America discount.

This was a good place to stay for one night. It was very hot and most sites have virtually no shade. The restrooms/showers were clean, and the site hook-ups were good. The place is very remote, and the office staff could not help with directions as we were coming through Laughlin. Our site did not have cable, and the pool is across the street at the casino. There is a shuttle to/from the casino, but no cool place to wait, and the shuttle wait was unreasonable at nearly an hour. We gave it an 8 as the price was right (KOA card discount rate). We would stay one night again.

The rate includes admission to the ghost town, which is a plus as that is a nice little attraction. The hook-ups were good, but the sites were not level at all. There may be some type of discount, but we were told , "Not on weekends". The restrooms/showers seem newer and were individual rooms, which is nice, but they were not cleaned over the three days we were there. They looked like they had not been cleaned for several days. Showers must be paid for, but the coin changer did not work. I would have rated it higher if the price were less or if the restrooms/showers had been clean. We would stay here again (for one night).

Not a typical campground and your site will be between or near to park models. 90% of the park is park models. The park staff was super friendly, we appreciated escort to the site and our rate was Passport America in summer. Park was mostly empty due to time of year, but is very large and probably very busy when it gets cooler. Lots of perks like a beautiful pool, jacuzzi, library, huge laundry, gym, access to an on-site computer, church service on Sunday...all which were available even in off-season. Sites did not appear to be shaded and the hookups were way at the back of the site, so we needed extra sewer hose to reach. Great deal for the rate, and we would return.

This is a nice park at a higher elevation than the surrounding areas, so the summer temperatures are cooler than the desert floor. The roads and sites are gravel. We had to borrow an adapter from the office to use 50 amp electric. The water was good. There are many full timers and park models. The pool was clean. I would have given it a higher rating except for the gravel road/sites which result in a lot of dust. We would stay here again.

This is a beautiful desert campground with a view of Lake Powell. The hookups are good, the roads are paved, all the sites have picnic tables and many have full concrete pads. The sites are up the side of a hill, so awesome sunrise views over Lake Powell are at most sites, and sunsets are beautiful as well. Restrooms were clean, but there is only one shower area at the bottom of the hill & that requires payment of $2 for 15 minutes. No senior national pass discounts are given, except for the dry sites. The office staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. There is a small camp store inside the office, and a small laundry room that was very clean. We would stay here again.

This park is right off the highway just south of Moab, and a good base camp for visiting the area. The hookups are good, cable TV is available, but the WIFI is very iffy. The restroom was cleaned regularly throughout the day. Efforts toward landscaping appear on-going and it was nice to have grass and a taller tree at our site. Sites have a picnic table on a concrete pad. The road and RV space are gravel/sand. No laundry room is available. The campground is at the base of Moab Rim and the La Sal mountains can be seen in the distance across the road. We would stay here again.

Reservations are a must here as there are only 21 sites and not all of them are RV friendly. This is a beautiful campground with flush toilets and no showers. You need to bring in your own water. There are many trails to hike from the campground. Each site has a covered picnic table on a cement slab which is very nice. The sites are paved for the vehicle/trailer and the electric hook-ups are good. Cell phone service is non-existent except for limited calling from the visitor's center which is .3 miles from the campground. It is beautiful and quiet, but very dusty & sandy when the wind blows. The views from the visitor center and from a further drive into the park are amazing! We would camp here again.

The water & sewer hookups were good and the small restroom was dated, but clean. Some grass was planted at our site, which was shaded, and we had a picnic table, making a nice environment. Small laundry area was clean. This park is next door to a rodeo arena/stables area, so when the wind blows (& it does often) you get a lot of red sand into everything. We were told Good Sam & Passport America were not honored in May. First time we ever had Good Sam turned down. Wifi did not work for us at all. We appreciated that we were allowed to fill with water, as we were going next to a campground without water. Landscape work is being done to improve the park. We would try another park next time.

The sites were level with easy access and the hookups were good. Some trees are planted between camp sites but the sites and roadway are basically gravel. Local TV reception is very good. The camp host was very friendly & knowledgeable about the surrounding area, and the campground is conveniently situated to use as a base camp. There is a nice view of the local red mountains. The host had good materials to help planning local sightseeing. The campground is easy off the highway, but very quiet at night. There is no grocery store in town, only a convenience store. Bluff Fort is a driveway away, and you can tour it for free and learn some local history. Watch the film as it is enlightening. We would stay here again.

This campground is gorgeous, nestled in a red rock canyon with a view of the monuments. Hook-ups are great and trees are being cultivated. It was odd that WiFi signal was strong, but could not get proper responses on internet. Campground roads are paved, but sites are gravel & dirt. Some of the office staff were especially pleasant & others were less so. We took the open vehicle 2.5 hr tour & loved it. Yes, it was windy and sand was blowing, but it's the desert. The red dirt road into the park among the monuments is very steep at times, with large pot holes & ditches, so we would not take our vehicle in. All tours entitle you to return the same day (on paved road & without the extra $5/person fee) to visit the tribal inn/restaurant/gift shop area. The view from there is a must see, so go back. We loved it here and would give it a 10 except for the WiFi problem. The rate was Good Sam. We would go back.

The restrooms are very clean but showers are not available in this campground. All the sites are pull-through, and some sites are better than others. This campground is concession operated so no National Park discounts apply. The water/electric/sewer hook-ups are good and we had cable TV. Verizon cell was spotty but our personal hot-spot worked fine. The staff was super friendly & helpful. The shuttle buses have pick-up/drop off at the campground which is awesome! The sites need work as they are mostly dirt and some are not too level. There is a picnic table & grill at each site, but a "no-burn" is now in effect. It is so convenient to stay inside the park! Elk walk through the campground. There is a shopping area one bus stop away that has a very nice market. The buses and location bring our rating up to a 9. We would stay here again.

This campground is very convenient to Sedona, but not a "normal" walk into town. It is a very pretty campground with appropriate rules that provide peace & enjoyment for everyone's benefit. We did feel it was a tad high in price (we used a Good Sam card), but the grounds are meticulously tended with actual grassy areas & beautiful landscape. Hook-ups are excellent. The sites are mostly gravel but cement pads with nice picnic tables are provided. The office staff was pleasant & very helpful to provide information about the area & will even make reservations for a jeep tour that will pick you up and drop you off in the campground. The bathroom, while small, is immaculate. Even being "close" to town, the campground is very quiet. Large sycamore trees are between most sites, providing shade. We did not see any campsites "on" the water. We would absolutely stay here again.

Our rate reflects the Good Sam discount. This was a nice, clean park to stay in. We had an escort to our site. We appreciated the cable TV and the free WiFi. It is just a short drive (under 10 minutes) to Montezuma's Castle National Monument, which is worth a visit. The casino will send a shuttle to pick you up & bring you back on the 3 minute ride, even if you just want to go over for dinner as we did. The restrooms & laundry were spic and span! We would stay again.

During the time we stay, the park was not full. We had one of the level paved sites, but did notice some of the gravel sites might have a hard time for leveling. The hook-ups were excellent and the rest rooms and shower areas were very clean. The pool, spa, and laundry room were very clean also. It was nice to use the free club-house computer. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. We would rate it higher, but the train whistles through the night were highly noticeable. We would look for something further from the tracks next time, but the whistles would be the only reason.

We stayed in the B loop of the campground and our site had a view of the mountains behind our trailer. The hook-ups were good, & even though there is no sewer hook-up, there is a dump station. Our site was level. The restrooms and showers were exceptionally clean. There are several hiking trails, and Saguaro cactus are on the hills all around. The view of the mountains is exceptional at sunset and sunrise. Across the highway from the park is a shopping center, but the park was very quiet during the time we stayed. We would stay there again.

The staff here is very friendly, upbeat and helpful. They escort you to your site, which is always appreciated. The park has nice open sites and the hook-ups are excellent. This is the first campground we've been in where there are 3 sewer hook-ups at the site. The bathrooms were excellent as they were very modern, clean & pretty. The grounds were well maintained & the cable worked well. Our Verizon hot spot would not work, but we could make a phone call with Verizon. The campground is half-way way between Carlsbad & Artesia, but the are almost no services nearby. They do serve a limited evening dinner of BBQ, which was great, and they will even deliver it (pre-paid) to your site. The caverns are a good forty-five minutes away. We liked it there and would return.

This park is a special deal for just $14 with electric. The terraced placement of campsites at the base of these desert mountains gives a very nice view of both the mountains and the plains below. Our antenna worked well to receive local TV. We were cautioned to beware of rattlesnakes, but did not see any. We did see bunnies and hummingbirds. No 50 amp but 30 amp was good. Water pressure was on the low side. Sunset was awesome! We would stay here again.

This is a good stop for an overnight stay. It is basically one site next to another on a huge gravel lot. All the sites are very wide and long. The hook-ups were excellent with 3 sewer choices per site. They recommend a water regulator. We could wash our trailer at our site, no charge, which was a plus for us. No shade is available, but that is common for the area. The restrooms & laundry area were spotless, and laundry was $1 washer, $.25 dryer.

This no-frills campground is acceptable for an overnight stay. The outdated restrooms were not super clean, but were acceptable, with the actual toilets being very clean. The showers need a really good cleaning. The staff was very pleasant. We did not tour the caverns. The view from the campsite was pleasant, but we were glad the place was not full as RV's are parked side-by-side. Peacocks and guinea hens run free, hawking for a handout. Lots of birds were present. We would overnight here again.

This is a beautiful park with lots of lake views. The water and electric hook-ups are good. Stay Sunday through Thursday if you can as Friday and Saturday are absolutely packed with lots of "party" atmosphere, especially in the lower loop. Roads are paved and sites are stone/gravel with plenty of room. Each site has a covered picnic table, grill, & fireplace. If the sites had sewer, this park would be a 10. Our rate reflects the Federal Senior Pass discount. We loved it and would return.

The nightly rate reflects a new walk-up service charge (but if you use the internet, you also pay the service charge). The campground is next to a swamp with an alligator warning, so beware if you have pets or small children. The restrooms are badly in need of an update. You must hold the water lever in to keep water flowing in the shower. Site hook-ups were good. We would return.

It is very important to be self contained here, as the unisex bathroom/shower is the bathroom in the mobile home clubhouse which is a fair walk from the campsites. This campground is about a 15 minute interstate drive from downtown San Antonio, with the end of the drive down a long, dirt road. Electric/water/sewer were good. It takes Passport America for the first night for a rate of $17.50 then additional nights are $28 with discount. The owner/hostess was super pleasant and provided lots of great information about the area. We took the Toyota plant tour she sent us info on and really enjoyed it. Small, quiet campground with several working permanents.

The rate reflects that Reserve America required a 2 night minimum, although we only wanted one night. It looked on Reserve America as though they would honor Golden Age Pass if your state does, but they only honor it for Louisiana, Maryland and Delaware. We could not cancel the second night. Sites are close. The tables are on a concrete pad and your neighbor's table is right next to your paved site. It is odd. Bathrooms are individual with showers, and very clean. It is a pretty park.

There are 2 loops: an older loop, where the bathroom is being remodeled right now, and a new loop. We stayed in the newer loop, which has paved roads and crushed stone at the sites, except the handicap sites which are cement. The bathroom in the new loop is new and super clean. Most sites are not level, perhaps to aid in rain run-off. Many larger motor homes have used their leveler-jacks, and their tires are completely off the ground. The older loop has compacted sand roads and sites, and that road has some major dips. Nice to have sewer at a state park. The water is good, and so is the electric hookup. The staff is super friendly, and the dunes are beautiful. The beach is 3/4 mile from the campground. We would return.

The campground is smaller and pretty tight to negotiate. Bigger rigs will have to be very careful due to trees. We have a 35' travel trailer and were able to manage just fine. Restrooms were modern and very, very clean. Good electric hookups and the water was good also. The staff at this state park were very pleasant and helpful. The campground road and sites were compacted sand, pine needles, and oak tree leaves. Lots of shade trees and some vegetation between sites. Our pull through site (#28) was level. Be on the lookout for white squirrels. Our rate was for Florida seniors.

Watching boats go through the locks is a plus. We will absolutely return.

We really enjoyed this campground. It was a nicely laid-out with plenty of space to maneuver our 35' travel trailer. Sites are level and spacious. We camped here for the first time at site 42. The sewer hook up at this site is a long way from your unit, so we choose to use the dump station (which is a double). But site 42 is very nice as one side is totally open with no neighbors. The bathrooms were spotless. You can walk down to the river and watch kayaks & canoes go by. The tubing area was closed when we were there. Your camping fee includes the daily per person entrance fee to the park. We have a FL resident senior pass we used to get the rate. We will return!
