We really enjoyed this campground. It is quiet--no traffic noise although only a mile from Hannibal. We stayed mid week, so it was uncrowded, but they apparently fill up on weekends, and the sites might then feel crowded, especially the pull through sites. The overall feel is of a campground rather than an RV park, which we enjoyed. Lots of trees, gravel roads, gravel sites. We had no problem with leveling, but we couldn't connect to water and sewer at the same time because of utility placement. Bonus points from us for the winery that is on site with really nice grounds and outside seating. Also the touring trolley comes to the Cave, which is part of the campground property, so you can go sightseeing without taking your vehicle to town. We recommend this property and would definitely return.
We camped mid-week for one night and were the only campers besides the seasonal occupants. Only a few spots available to overnighters--almost all seasonal in a very large campground. Many units have obviously been there a long time, and condition of seasonal rigs and sites was variable--some beautiful, many not so much. However, we had a nice view of the lake, the location was convenient for sightseeing in Amish country, and campground is very clean. Bathrooms are clean, showers are good. We thought campground was hard to find, and the access road almost discouraged us from entering. We would probably stay at the State Park when returning to this area.
We stayed in a full hook up back in site that is very large and had a great view of the lake. Fantastic sunset! We stayed during the week and after "the season," so very few people in the park. Plenty of space on grass behind our trailer for all of us to enjoy the view without being overly close to other guests. We opted for the view with no trees, but shaded sites were available. Sites are gravel for rigs and fairly level, and surrounded by grass. Staff escorts to site and helps with back in. This is a very large KOA with perhaps half the sites occupied by seasonal units. Grounds were very well kept and clean. WiFi good. Price includes $16 for two additional adults--basic rate covers only 2 adults. Also reflects KOA membership discount. We would definitely stay again, but not during the busy season.
Top of the line KOA. We are not generally KOA campers because we find spaces are too close together. We stayed here to see Petoskey area and because it is off the highway and has cable TV. The back-in spaces towards the back of the park are the most secluded. Many have great trees and shade. We found the staff really accommodating in getting a site that met our needs. The website really describes the choices fairly well. This is a very large RV park so we imagine it is crowded, busy, and somewhat noisy in the summer. But kids should love it because there's so many activities, plus a large swimming pool. The grounds are beautifully kept. Good landscaping and flowers. Seasonal residents are separate. There are some park model units, also separate and very well kept. Just seems like these owners thought of everything to make the stay enjoyable. I would definitely recommend. The higher cost compared to other choices in the area was definitely worth it.
This is a great campground for a short stay. Full hookups, plus plenty of TV channels via antenna. No Internet; weak cellular signal. Area is flat and fairly rural. It is small--38 sites that are uniform in size and much larger than expected. Easy to maneuver, and several pull-through sites. Sites all have a paved pad--level and in good shape. 2-3 miles off interstate, so it is a good overnight stop with little traffic noise--although there are trains. It is a county park with good recreational facilities, including a lake with a swimming beach. Great walking paths--paved, and dogs can swim at the far end of the lake. Camp in a west side spot for late afternoon shade. It is probably crowded during the season but very quiet weekdays in September.
This is a hard campground to review. It has a unique location on a peninsula (maybe island) in the Mississippi, across from Red Wing Minnesota. But most spots (all the desirable spots) are taken by seasonal rentals. We were in a spot right on the river, but very close to the highway bridge over the river and connecting Minnesota and Wisconsin--noisy all night. The Marina was directly on front of us, but it seemed in bad sharp with very few boats. Red Wing is an active port with a lot of train traffic and noise from the grain elevators, etc. so not peaceful--but a stunning sunrise with a beautiful down river view pretty much compensated for the noise and the "rustic" condition of the overnight campsites. We would recommend Island Campground to those in the area looking for a different kind of one night stay.
Very nice campground walking distance to Pipestone National Monument, which is well worth a visit. Sites all had grass and trees, picnic tables and fire rings. We had a long pull through---convenient because we didn't have to detach truck from trailer. Campground was very large, but it may feel crowded during the season. There are a few seasonal sites, but they all seemed well kept and were just a small number overall. Pool was closed for the season. Internet was fine. Owners might do better to shield off work areas from recreation/camping. Restrooms were older but very clean and adequate. Little town of Pipestone looked interesting, but we didn't have time to explore. We thought this overall is a beautiful part of Minnesota. We would recommend this campground.
Not worth the price. Very noisy due to proximity to I-80. Good concrete pads, but no landscaping in "new" area. Person on desk did not tell us that we were choosing a spot with no grass and no Internet ( apparently due to distance from office). The little lake next to sites was nice for walking the dog. Bathrooms were okay--fairly new construction but certainly not spotlessly clean. Best features: good pads, very level, long pull through sites so we didn't have to disconnect truck.
Cascade is on the popular Chalk Creek Canyon. It is a typical National Forest Service campground in this area, with developed camp sites, vault toilets, and water available. All three Forest Service developed campgrounds appear suitable for RVs, but traffic noise from the county road is a problem. The road leads to the ghost town of St. Elmo (worth a visit), and lots of areas allowing ATVs so the road was busy from very early morning until after dark. Cascade campground is very pretty with lots of trees and great views of the canyon walls/cliffs. Chalk Creek is on the other side of the road from the campground. Sites are well spaced. We like Cascade the best of the three campgrounds because of the abundance of trees. There is plenty to do in the area, including Mt. Princeton Hot Springs and river rafting and fishing on the Arkansas River. Mountain town of Salida is fairly close by.
Bayfield Riverside RV Park more than met our expectations. We were in site #1, which is a back in site very suitable for smaller trailers or motor homes, next to creek with both shade and a over sized grassy area in the sun. The Park property is very large, with meadows, streams and ponds, so great for dog walks. Owners and their crew work really hard on landscaping, cleanliness and upkeep. Unbelievable display of flowers and a huge lawn. Park is next to the highway, but at least at our site, traffic noise was not an issue because of the sounds of the running stream. Location is convenient to Colorado mountain activities and good fishing, but it is way out of the congestion of Durango. WiFi great most of the day but less accessible in the evening. We will definitely stay here again when we return to this area.
