This is as near to a perfect campground that you can find. I do however suggest getting a back-in site, the pull-through sites are the side by side kind and it can get close to your neighbor. The park roads are paved and sites are concrete. Attractive trash barrows are placed at every site. The park is nicely landscaped with grass, trees and a pond in the middle. Buses will pick you up and drop you off at your site for a ride to the casino. Security often travels through the park. The office staff is on the ball, friendly and wants to make the stay work. I definitely would get reservations.
This park is fairly basic, a field of grass with a few young trees. The sites are pull through unless they get busy and then put two RV's back to back. There are many sites so that may not happen often. The park couldn't be better located for a visit to the Amana Colonies and the many interesting places to visit not to mention the shopping and dinning opportunities.
The person in the office was pleasant and very helpful with directions for Nashville. He led us to our site and made sure all was okay. Our site was not level, but we made it work. We had a pull-through with plenty of room for out 40 foot MH and car. The campground was easy to get into and out of. We enjoyed our stay.
As with all Escapees parks, this park is clean, well managed and friendly. There have been many positive changes in the park from our last visit 5 years ago. Our only complaint, which is not a park problem, is that Verizon service has only voice and not data. That meant my smart phone and Mifi didn't work (expect to call on my phone). The office told us this would be corrected in a year.
There is a long narrow road into the campground, wouldn't want to meet another big rig. We were led to our site, was easy to get into and out of. The site was not long enough to keep our car hitched to our 40 foot MH, which was OK as we planned on visiting the area. The pool had just opened, we didn't use the pool but it looked inviting. There was a steady hum from Interstate traffic. No cable TV but Atlanta stations came in on the antenna well. Would stay here again.
The campground was easy to find and yet far enough off the interstate that it was quiet. We were led to our site which was easy to get into and out of with our 40 foot motor home towing a car. The site was long enough but very narrow. All utilities worked well, we had two bars on the Wi-Fi but it worked and was fast. The campground is old, looked like they stuck a campsite in every available place. Restrooms were old but clean. We had no problem getting back on the highway as there is little traffic so could use both lanes.
I don't know what more you could want in a park. They have paved sites and roads, trees, grass, fire pits, grills and a garbage can on sites. The staff was knowledgeable and helpful. A convenience store is across the road and two casinos near by with all sorts of eating places. We saw a security car driving around frequently. We stayed 3 weeks and enjoyed it all.
This park is all gravel, only green was some very small trees they are trying to grow. There was only a few feet between us and our neighbors - we were parked so the utility pole served two RV's. We had a great view of large oil storage tanks. The park is way overpriced for what you get. Most people appeared to be over nigher like us. It is easy off and back on the Interstate. The staff was efficient and friendly. Phone ahead if you want 50 amps.
This appears to be a destination park as there are many things for families. School in Utah had just started when we were there so during the week the park was almost empty. All sites are gravel but there are full grown trees and grass around the place. We had a nice pull-through site, level, all utilities worked. Staff was pleasant and knowledgeable. It was a bit difficult to understand the directions to the park.
This park gets one of my very rare 10's perhaps because it was so good to see full grown trees and grass rather than a big gravel parking lot like where we have been staying. The paved pull-through sites are long enough for our 40 foot motorhome and tow car. The utilities are in the proper place unlike so many parks that put them in the back of the lot. The roads are paved so there is no dust. Some long term people line the park but their sites don't have a lot of junk around which is often the case. The park is a block off the highway, but we had no problems with noise. Just everything we want in a park.
This is not much more than a RV parking lot, sites are side-by-side sharing an utility pole. I'm am surprised that the health dept. doesn't force them to have a more sanitary way of dumping. The sites are level with good electricity and water. the park has surprisingly little traffic noise, but is on the landing/take-off corridor of the airport. The park can't do much about that, but they could have the garbage truck come later than 6AM!
They were redoing the entrance so there was no sign telling us we were at the right place unless we looked back. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. There seemed to be no security around and the park was not gated. We had no problems, just like to know our valuables are safe when we are gone. We had breakfast in the cafe, it was good and the service was good. Great coffee! Sites were easy in and out. I'm sure the signing problem will be fixed soon, but they do need temporary signs.
We paid $43 for a week, that plus electricity came to about $13 per night. (It was in the 90's during that time so we used ample electricity.) The park is gated so secure, clean and has very friendly people. Our only complaint was we couldn't use our MH washer as "would overload the sewer system" BUT they do have a laundry that no doubt dumps into the same sewer system. Guess they just want us to feed their machines quarters! Would have rated this park a ten if not for the washer deal.
The price we paid included a Good Sam discount. This is our third stay at this park, each about 5 years apart. The first time the park was great, the second so-so but because of the positive reviews we decided to give it another try and it was a good choice. The sites are narrow, but because the park was far from full, RV's were placed in every other site giving plenty of space. The park was well taken care of, some of the "long-term" sites need to get control of their stuff. Be careful when entering the park as it is easy to drag your RV.
This park is one big gravel parking lot with RV sites on each side. The sites are narrow, if they could have put another 5 feet between sites it would feel less like you were right on top of your neighbors. The park was clean, management very friendly and helpful and everything worked. We had no trouble parking our 40 foot MH but because our neighbor had two trucks parked at their site getting out was a challenge. Staying here for a couple days would be fine, but I would get tired of having neighbors so close if I stayed any longer.
This is an Escapees membership park. The good things about this park: it's nicely landscaped, clean, well managed with friendly people. The reason I give it a 5 is there is no 50 amps, the 30 amp voltage was so low we had to be VERY careful not to overload. (It ran around 110 and 115 volts.) Secondly, the guest sites are close and it's one big gravel parking lot. The rates are good for the area, $99 a week. We will not stay here again as we got tired of dealing with the low voltage.
Nice park and easy access from the interstate. The paved lanes are very narrow and just long enough for our motorhome and car. They turned the watering system on just as we were getting ready to leave at 7:30 AM; could they have watered during the night? Not only did we get wet but our motorhome and car were spotted. We helped pay for their pool that we did not use. If we come through this area again we will stay at one of the other parks close to the road which are less costly for a 15 hour stay.
This is a beautiful park, we greatly enjoyed our time there. The park and all the facilities have been taken care of very well. One problem we encountered when we were ready to leave - a truck was parked half way in the lane we needed to use to leave. The MH in front of us left and we were able to pull through their site. I think the management should have noticed the truck in the road and asked them to move the night before.
Nice park, good access to I-90 for an overnight stay. Our only complaint was the interior access roads required a bit of fancy maneuvering with our 40 foot MH. There is a train and airport near-by, not a lot of noise if your not easily awakened.
We had a decent site, wide enough and all the utilities worked. Enough room for a our 40 foot MH to move around the park. The restrooms need to be completely redone, in the mean time a good cleaning would help. The office area was a mess and there were old 5W's around. The man who led us to our site was friendly but could use a shower and a clean shirt. There is a much used train track adjacent, but the train doesn't blow the horn as it goes through town so not a big problem.
This is a beautiful park, large trees and a river that meanders through to area. The sites are a bit close to each other, when our neighbors get their big trucks parked we have a problem with a parking place for our car. The office folks are friendly and helpful, even came to our site after we were parked to see it all was OK. We will diffidently be coming back here in the future.
Great overnight park when traveling across South Dakota. It's just off the interstate with long pull-through sites. Easy to move a 40 foot MH around. They could fix a few pot holes and trim a few trees, but otherwise a good place to park. The restrooms were super clean.
The park is very well maintained, staff friendly and knowledgeable. We reserved a pull-through site and thats what we got. We stop for 2-3 days when going north or south and have had positive things to say about this park. There are many casinos around, even if you don't gamble there are good places to eat. There is also a boat trip on the Mississippi and a good museum in the area.
We said we'd never stay at this park again but it is a convenient along-the-interstate place to stay. This time we were able to level with boards under the back wheels and jacks (jacks fully extended). We went to the buffet breakfast that was so terrible last time to find the food and service had improved 100%. We will probably stop here again when traveling along I20.
This is a great Escapees campground, the sites are large and nearly level. There are good size trees and good roads. The staff is friendly and helpful. The park is out in the country some so while it is a longer drive it is also very quiet. (In addition to the $13 fee we had to pay for electricity - still a deal.)
Great staff at this park. Something was going on almost every evening at the club house and they had some good meals. We had a 50 amp site that was far from level, we had to put the front of our motor home on wood blocks to get anywhere near level, then the door (which is at the front) was so high off the ground we almost needed a step stool! We were told these were new sites so why weren't they level? This is an Escapees park.
We reserved two days ahead of our arrival. We asked for a level site and were assured that was not a problem. When we arrived about 3pm we got a site that sloped drastically to the rear and also to the drivers side. There was no way we could get anywhere near level, and we tried with boards under the wheels and jacks. Having a site that is nearly level is the one thing all campgrounds should have. There were no other sites available that would have been any better. We did get free tickets to the breakfast buffet - the food was fine, the service nonexistent. We were so ready to leave the place and will never return as our problems far outweighed any good points about the place.
Easy off I90 and easy into and out of sites. The park is well maintained. Our site was not level, we were staying one night so did the best possible with our jacks. Lots of highway noise and a train nearby. We were there for 15 hours so $38 plus tax made it over $3 an hour. Next time that direction we will stay somewhere less expensive or at the Flying J just down the road. Too bad campgrounds don't have an overnight charge for folks who don't use any of the facilities.
The roads are breaking up, one road was blocked as it was impassable. The sites are pull-through concrete pads, but along the side of the sites it is mud. Forget the casino for dinning, it is over priced for sub-grade food. There were small garbage bags all over the place at 6PM, someone must have picked them up later. On the plus side, the park works for an overnight as it is right off I35. We had no problem getting in and out with our 40 foot MH. With a casino card you get 5 cents off a gallon gas or diesel at their station and again we had no problems getting in and out to get diesel. The casino really needs to pay some major attention to this park or it will soon be totally unacceptable.
We had no problem getting into our site with our 40 foot MH and back out to the road the next day. The people in the office were friendly and we were led to our site. We had called ahead for reservations and they held a site for us with just our last name. The park was clean and quiet. We will stop here again as we make our way from Florida to the north.
The rate is with the Passport discount. The park is hard to find, I used the address for Turning Wheel RV which led us right to Turning Wheel, just beyond is the non-gated entrance to the campground. The park was clean, nice grass and some trees. There is some road noise, sirens woke us up during the night - otherwise the park is quiet. We stayed here the night before a repair appointment at Turning Wheel, because the park is right behind Turning Wheel it works well. If the park were full maneuvering a big rig around could be a problem.
The rate is for Good Sam with 50 amp. We had a long and wide site. While there is little grass the park does have full grown trees. The office is open a limited time - at least in October. We had a neighbor that starts his diesel truck at 5AM probably to go to work - management should ask him to park his truck elsewhere. The cable TV is good, no wi-fi at sites - just at the office. The park seemed full all nights we were there so reservations are important.
We had a nice site towards the back, the site was long, wide and our Motor Home was on concrete. Even though this park is small we had no problems maneuvering our 40 footer around. I would have given this park a 10 but all sites weren't as nice as the one we had. Reservations are a must as this park was full the nights were were there.
Hopefully the road construction will be done soon, it was a major problem getting to this park then getting back on I 25 South. The park was clean and well managed. There was no grass, just some weeds, the place was dusty and we dragged in a lot of dirt in on our shoes. The pull-through sites were long enough and extra wide, we could park our car between our Motor Home and our neighbors and still have room. The park had noise issues - I25 close by, a train track and an airport. We'd stay here again (if the construction was completed) for a one night stop over.
The park was clean with level pull-throughs, but the sites were about as wide as our Motor Home with our slides out. All dirt sites and very dusty, and they would be mud if it rained. They need to trim trees at the entrance so it can better be seen and would also make it easier to get back out into traffic. This worked fine for an overnight stop. It was far enough off the highway to be quiet. We'd stay here again as a one night stop through place to stay.
This is a great overnight park, easy to get in and out. The park is very clean and well managed. The office staff is friendly and knows what they are doing. There is an indoor pool, great for those cool nights. It is a bit overpriced but glad to pay for the ease in parking. We'd pick this park again when in the area.
Our site was long enough for a 40 foot MH, but hardly wide enough for our slides. We had to walk under our bedroom slide to get to our car behing the MH. Our cable connection didn't work so the manager put a spliter on our neighbors - then his didn't work. Like previously stated there were a lot of working people, but they were quiet and had little junk spread around. One reason I rated this park down is that people came from a back area and drove fast in front of us raising dust on the gravel road. The park was building a new bath house. It looked like there was a nice pool and play ground.
Take exit 162, not 164 as listed in Trailer Life. We stayed three nights here, and enjoyed our stay under the trees and by the river. The restrooms and laundry badly need to be updated, they weren't so much dirty as just OLD. We had no trouble getting into and out of our site in our 40 foot MH. The park provided a good place for some much needed R & R!
This is a trailer/RV park, but the trailers are in one area and the RVs in another. The RV part is very well kept, green grass, new looking picnic tables,and huge trees. They have good cable and wifi. We had no trouble moving our 40' motorhome around. It was about full each of the three nights we were there so reservations would be good. While on the phone ask for directions as the directions in Trailer Life are not correct. If ever in this area again we will stay at this park.
We saved $10 a night by taking a back-in site which was large enough for out 40 foot MH. I do agree with the other posts that this place ia way overpriced but it is a nice, well taken care of park located right by the west entrance to Yellowstone. The water pressure was low and charges for Wi-Fi. The office staff of work campers were helpful in giving us directions and recommendations for places to eat. This park was full every night that we were there, so have reservations!
This is one big gravel parking lot with cabins and motel rooms mixed in with the RV sites. When a wind came along dust was everywhere. Two redeeming factors: the view of the mountains and river are great and a good location close to Cody and Yellowstone. The breakfast buffet was a good deal, but the dinners were high priced - worth a trip back into Cody if you want to eat out.
It was the first day for the woman in the office, management failed to train her as she didn't seem to know what she was doing. She put our 40' MH in a site where we would have drug getting into then had not been able to level. There were much better sites and since there were about 10 RV's in the park we asked for and got a much better level pull-through site, only problem the electricity didn't work. We were able to plug into the electricity next to us so we didn't have to pull up jacks and move. The cable TV was good, some traffic noise but what do you expect if you want a park right of the interstate! They need to get a few truck loads of gravel as the place was mud. All in all this park is a good place to stay overnight, but needs some care - we got the feeling the place has been left out of the maintenance loop for some time.
We stayed here for 3 weeks, it is a clean, well kept park. Almost every day there were people out mowing and trimming and the office staff is great - friendly and accommodating. We like the back in sites for a long stay, but for a few nights the pull-throughs work fine. The park was full on the weekends so reservations a must. Wish all parks were this great!
We are Thousand Trails members and are suppose to get our site for free, yet we had to pay $2 a day for 50 AMP - I hardly think we used $2 extra electricity. At least reserve the 50 AMP sites for 50 AMP users only. You will be hard pressed to find a near level site - the sites range from unlevel to extremely unlevel and these are NEW sites. Someone was asleep during construction or just didn't know people expect at least near level sites. There was no security, or security was also asleep during a loud party next door that lasted past midnight. Dogs bark and run free, but no one from management cares. The buildings have been improved from the time we were here several years ago and with some work and attention this could be a nice park. The Thousand Trails organization will be hearing from us.
It is easy to move a 40 foot MH towing a car around in this park. Some shade would be nice. It is a good place to headquarter to see the RV industry and museum. Owner was friendly and anxious to help us with directions. We used our Escapees membership for a 15% discount.
This is a nice park and easy pulling off the Interstate for a night. Our only complaint is that it was impossible to get antenna TV and satellite would be a challenge with all the trees. They need to get cable. We used Passport America and paid $15.
This is a good place to park if you are visiting the Amana Colonies (which I would highly recommend). The campground needs some road repair and site leveling - trees would help. For a night or two this park will work. Work camper staff were friendly and helpful. We used Passport America and got two nights for half price
Easy off and easy on I90. There are service stations selling both gas and diesel that a big rig can access and a couple eating places - everything you need for an overnight stop. The park was very clean with all gravel roads and pull throughs. I would have rated this place a little lower for a long stay, but it is great for overnight.
The park is spread out around a pond. Sites are all concrete with grass between. Everything is well maintained and clean. Staff is pleasant and efficient. We were able to get WIFI from our site which was about as far as possible from the office. There is some noise at night from car horns at the next door casino. A bus runs often to the casino where besides gambling there are several places to dine. A security car often patrols the area. There is a nice fenced in play ground and a pool across the road at a fitness center.
Nice park close to Mall of America and other area attractions. There was some jet noise beginning about 7AM from airplanes landing or taking off from the airport, otherwise quiet. The park is very well maintained and managed by work campers who know something about RV'ing.
This is a huge, nice TT. Close to Disney World and many other places. WiFi is available only in the clubhouse with no charge. We have stayed here many times and will be back. Why I rated it down is there was broken up plastic around our site and a broken up picnic table with planks missing.
This park is mainly intended for the "Winter Texans" that arrive in the winter, but will allow a day/week stay. PA and TT offer a half price discount. The name Tropic Winds couldn't be more true, the wind blows all the time and with few trees there is no protection. The sites are long enough for a big MH and about a third wider than most sites at other parks and have a concrete patio. There is a internet hookup at the main building and Tangonet pay wifi. The entrance is gated and the gate house staffed at all times. We were given a three page list of rules, about half apply to people staying longer. Still plenty of rules! The staff is friendly and helpful. There are a few trailer homes, but they are well kept. The park is near a airport and train. We would stay here again.
Nice park, we arrived the day after a rain and didn't find any mud unlike another post. Office staff is helpful and friendly. Water pressure is low, had to fill the fresh water tank and use our pump. Electrical power is good. WiFi is $4 a day, TL lists the WiFi as being free. We would stay here again.
This is a membership park, staff would be glad to sell a membership! There is no wifi, management says it is coming soon, but we understand they have been saying that for some time. There is ONE phone connection for computers for the entire park. There are a few 50 amp sites which cost $2 more. There are a few trees, but for the most part sites are in the sun. Sites are tight and in some instances no room to park a car except on the road which is not permitted. Sewer rules are enforced. Management has a meeting every Sat. morning, a good place to find out what is going on in the park and to voice concerns. The park is well located, management is helpful.
This is a membership park, there may be some specials along with a sales person talk. When we were there the park was all but empty due to the time of year. I understand the park is very full in the winter. Most sites have long pull throughs, good voltage, good water pressure, clean and well groomed. There are many huge palm trees making the park look very attractive. The park easy to find off I 10 and easy to access. The park staff was friendly and helpful. As far as TT parks go, this is one of the nicer ones.
Very busy park, people leaving and coming in all the time. The pull through sites are long enough for our MH and car, there are barriers between sites to keep folks in their own areas. The reason I down grated my rating was the strange way of sewer connecting, I hardly think it is sanitary. The location is great, a good (and cheap) meal can be had at the near by cassino which is in walking distance. There are many other food and entertainment venues near. We have stayed here in the past and would stay here again.
This is a nice park with full grown trees and green grass. The office people and friendly and efficient. It is easy to find, easy to park and there are numerous places to eat and visit nearby. There are a lot of long term people, some with trashy RV's and a lot of junk around their site. Why do the owners allow this in otherwise a class A place? The place appeared full or almost full the three nights we were there. There is wifi which is slow with low signal, but works well enough for e-mail.
I agree with the previous posts, this is an almost perfect RV park. The only down side is the DSL box the must be secured from the office with a $50 credit card deposit, but it works well and is a fast connection. The owners are friendly and helpful. There seem to be a few long term people, but have kept their outside stuff to a minimum. We'd be happy to find a park like this any day!
Most sites are long pull-throughs with grass and trees between sites. Along the edges are back-ins which are occupied by long term people with all their associated stuff. The park has a long list of rules, most of which don't seem to apply to the long term people - like no outside hanging of clothing, pets must be quiet, no trash outside, etc. Despite this, this park is nice and the restrooms are great. My main reason for rating this down in the inept managers. They know how to collect the money and that is ALL. They told us the reason the park isn't in TL is because the owner didn't buy an ad, we know that is not how TL does business. The free wifi has a strong signal, but needs to be reset for it to work - this is way beyond the managers.
Sites were close together on gravel, paved roads. Some sites have a view of the Columbia river, none right on the waterfront. Wifi is available for $4.95 a day. There are a number of long term people who must go to work or someplace about 5AM as there is much door slamming and diesel truck running at that time. The park is clean and managers are pleasant and helpful. I would recommend reservations.
The RV park is seperate from the trailer park, but there are a few long term RV's in the RV part with their junk spread around. Also junk stored behing a storage building, otherwise the park is well kept. It is a paking lot, RV's park on gravel - road is paved, no grass. The sites are long enough, but just wide enough to get slides out. There are trains nearby that blow their horns all day and night. Management is friendly and helpful.
I agree with the other posts, this is a nice park. It is clean and for the most part, quiet. There are large trees and grass between sites. Wifi works great and it is free! Management is friendly and helpful.
This park is very well kept ADULT park. The trailer sites are maintained and no junk around them. Wi-Fi is available at the laundry. The RV's are in a separate area from the trailers. There is a good pressure wash. It has been full the three nights we have been here, so get reservations.
TL gives this park a very low rating, the management said they have not been out to rate them for years. It was a trailer/RV park, there are now no trailers or long term people. The park is clean and well kept. The management is very pleasant and helpful, they led us to a site even when they were busy parking a caravan and came back later to see if everything was OK. There is good cable TV, they were installing wifi when we left. We would be glad to find this nice of park anytime. Because of possible bears and wolves, only hard sided RVs can camp here. We didn't see any wildlife!
There are no sites with sewer, but a dump is available. No TV, even on antenna. WiFi works well throughout the park. The park is off the highway and very quiet and has a nice view of mountains and a river. The sites are wide and long, no problems getting in or out in a big rig. Low water pressure. Caravans stop at this park, so check ahead or be prepared to move on.
Good cable TV and wifi works well. Next to the Alaskan Highway, but quiet at night. Big rigs can get in and out with ease. Fuel is available with a discount. Good rig wash. Pleasant people in the office. There are several caravans that stay here so reservations are a good idea.
There are only 5 sewer sites, none available as it appears long-term people are in these sites. The park is off the road enough to cut the noise. Some sites have grass, picnic table and fireplace while other sites just have gravel by their doors. The sites are not level. Good Verizon cell phone service and good wi-fi.
The sites are easy for a big rig to get into and out of, room for a tow car behind. There is grass and a picnic table between sites. The down side - it is located just off a busy highway; although the noise is constant, there are no trucks shifting down and few sirens. The owner is pleasant and helpful.
This park is overpriced for a large gravel parking lot. The sites are narrow, could hardly get our slides out, people park on the road making it narrow. You need to be an experienced driver if you want to get your big rig in and out without damage. There is a lot of noise going on at night until about midnight, where is the management to enforce quiet hours? They advertise wi-fi, but didn't work when we were there.
Fun place to stay, the owner has a pancake toss every night. There is a sourdough bowl meal available in the evening and pancake breakfast in the morning. One TV channel, Wi-fi at the office. We had a nice site, easy to access.
