Pretty typical Encore park. Sites are small for a large motorhome. Ours is 45' and our mirrors were in the street. No place to park a towed. No hot water in the showers, lukewarm at best. Jacuzzi is way too small for 535 sites, but it was warm. Pool is heated. Extra charge for 50amp service. Extra charge for internet. Lots of speeding by golf carts, driving side by side, cutting corners etc. Be careful if you have an end unit. Lots of noise from the International airport a mere 2 miles away. With all the camping available in this area, there are many parks that offer more. We wouldn't return.

Very nice park on the shores of Shawano Lake. Lots for everyone to do. Paddle boats, canoes, swim beach (no lifeguard), boat ramp, two bathhouses with showers, (50 cents) very clean. They pick up your trash in front of your site several times a day. Large play area for the younger kids and basketball, tennis court and kickball for the older ones. On site security. Would have given it a 10 except the utilities are strangely located away from the sites. We are in a back in, 50amp site and had to use a 25' extension cord as well as a 25' extension on our water hose. Many sites are big rig friendly, we are 45'. Verizon was OK, AT&T off and on. Only one handicapped site which was occupied by non handicapped campers. (Error by office staff, promised to be corrected.)

Nice campground with friendly hosts. Narrow entry road, but short. Next to an amusement park, but it presented no noise issues. About 45 mins to Chicago. Verizon was strong, AT&T sometimes. Restrooms were clean, but difficult to shower due to the large number of mosquitoes. Rating dropped due to the levelness of the sites. Our front step was 22" off the ground. They could level the sites front to rear and crown them like the roadways for drainage. Still, we would stay here again if visiting Chicago. Access was adequate.

The good: lots of activities for the kids, pool, hot tub, (both inside) mini golf, video machines, basketball, pool table. Right across from Lake Michigan. Front sites face the water, but across a four lane highway. Fairly easy access to the lake, but during busy times of the day, traffic is a concern. Free Wi-Fi and very strong. Verizon and ATT were good with 4g. The bad: sites are very close together. They've planted trees between the sites which will make them even smaller. We have a 45' quad slide coach and could not open the awnings on either side of the coach. Picnic tables intrude on neighboring site. Very friendly staff, we would stay here again. Rate reflects Passport America.

Great park with many sites. Lots of room between sites. Big Rig friendly. Speed through the park is a problem as there is no enforcement. Be cautious if you have small children. We encountered fire ants and stickers that bothered the dog. All in all though, it's a wonderful park. The park pool closes at dusk but the hotel pool/spa is open until 10pm and is heated. Verizon was strong 5bars/3g with ATT also at 4 bars/4g. We will stay here again. Rate reflects cost after discounts from the casino.

Very nice park, well maintained, big rig friendly. Gracious host with lots of information. Excellent BBQ on Friday nights at Peter's in Ellinger. Heated pool and indoor spa. Would be a 10 but only outdoor showers at the pool/spa and water never heated up. Lots of room between sites. Would return again. We had a 50amp FHU site on the river. Verizon and AT&T 4bars/3/4g Rate reflects member rate.

We stayed here in 2011 and enjoyed it very much so we returned this year. What a disappointment. ELS needs to spend some $$ in this park. Lots of maintenance needs to be done. In fairness, the lake is now dry, so campers are less. Less campers means less hours allocated to the park, but let's be fair. How much does it take to run a riding mower through the park and cut down the weeds? We were there four days and never once saw a ranger other than at the entrance station. Lots of empty spots so reservations shouldn't be necessary. Lots of maintenance needed in the pool area. The bottom lodge was not open during our stay. Sad.. Verizon 4bars/3g AT&T sporatic but 4 bars 3g.

What's not to like about this park? Right on the lake, boat docks, big rig sites with ample room, friendly staff, pool and spa. Only thing we found wrong with this park was one restroom building only had cold showers and the other one was closed. We would return. Verizon 3 bars 3g ATT 4bars 4g Rate reflects members rate.

Great little park. No road noise to speak of. Big wide sites, lots of pull throughs. Very quiet at night. Friendly owners met us at the gate upon our arrival at 7PM even though the office was closed. Escorted us to our site. #70 is the best site in the park! Comes complete with cabana, picnic table, fire ring, bbq and lawn furniture. Verizon 3bars/edge-AT&T 5bars/4g. CG is on the river but only tent sites abut the shoreline. Appears they are in the flood plain so the RV sites are higher...keeps the sewers out of the river. WiF was free, strong but a little slow. We would stay here again.

Rate reflect TT membership. Park is open to public and offers RPI discount. Mostly 30amp electrical, but many sites are being upgraded to 50amp ($3/night extra). Big Rig friendly with two pools and spas. Verizon 3g/4bars ATT Edge/2bars, but only with Wilson amp. Close to Sedona, Jerome, Prescott, Montezuma's Cliff dwelling and the Cliff Castle Casino. Friendly staff, but pools will be closed if lightning is showing in the area. Also, they have adult hours twice a day and the rangers will enforce it. We stay here when passing through Arizona. Nice facility.

New owners and newly renovated park. Nicely laid out and easy in and out. Pull-through sites and Big Rig friendly. No amenities except Wi-Fi which was strong and worked well. Verizon 3g/5 bars..ATT Edge/3bars. Good campground, close to town. Some train noise but no traffic. We would stay here again. IMHO, the nicest park in Van Horn but choices are limited. Easy access to I-10 and several truck stops, but no fwy noise. Rating reflects consideration for the nightly pricing.

Very nice campground, recently renovated. Was Western Horizons, now open to the public. Two pools and a spa. Immaculate restrooms. Big Rig friendly. Office staff very nice. The park was uncrowded when we were there and the lady in the office said she tried to put rigs in every other site. Most of the sites are back-in with one row of pull-throughs. Each site has a concrete pad, but their position is best suited for trailers and fifth wheels. Rate reflects RPI rate, but they said they honor all other affiliates at the same rate. Call to confirm.

Basically an RV park stuck behind a motel. Very dated with several permanent residents. The restrooms are in the hotel. No facilities in the campground. The pool was closed permanently as was the water fountain in the CG. Sites were level but lots of dust. Advertised as Big Rig friendly, but 40' should be their max. There are a couple sites in the back large enough for a 45' but access to them was tight. Right off I-10 but little road noise. Rate reflects Passport America discount, so at that rate, we got what we paid for. Good for a one night stopover.

Great campground. Ample room for Big Rigs. Sites 1-8 are grassy sites, back-in only, for smaller rigs, less than 35'. Other sites are pull-through. Solid electrical, 30 amp and excellent water pressure. Pay in adjacent Elks Lodge or place check in container outside. Kids play area with swings, etc. Large picnic area with covered cabana and picnic tables. Within 2 blocks of downtown old Willcox, worth walking through. The positive is also the negative. The City Hall is located in the old train station. That means the train tracks are also a few blocks from the campground. Not a negative to us, but if you're a train hater, be advised. We enjoyed taco night in the lodge..all you can eat for $5.50! There is no sewer hookup, dump station or restrooms.

Very nice campground near the American Falls reservoir. There are two sections, old and new. The new is paved with nice level sites and 50amp service. The old is dirt/gravel with 30amp service. The older section has larger trees so sat service may or may not be available. We stayed in the new section and enjoyed our stay. Elec/water was excellent. Short walk to the beach, but water was iffy. Lots of fishermen and semi permanent residents. Park mgmt personnel were great and helpful. We would stay here again.

Very nice campground. Only 11 sites in this loop and all have a view of the reservoir. The host and handicapped sites have sewer, the rest do not. The bathrooms were spotless and the water/elec worked great. The rate reflects the $7/day fee the State charges but we bought the yearly pass. The correct GPS coordinates to get here are: 39.633395,-107.743748. We would stay here again.

Very nice park in Bayfield. Other parks closer to Durango, but this one has several rivers running through it. Fishing is catch and release. Very friendly and accommodating staff. Lots of area to run your dog on or off leash. Not too much to see or do in the area. I would have given it a higher rating if it had a pool or a spa. Sites were clean and level. We would stay here again.

They really should have separate reviews for the campground and for the resort. The CG is in the front, has no pool, but has a swimming "pond" and has gravel mostly level sites. The rear section is outstanding with paved roads, level concrete pads and ours had a cabana attached. The resort has a pool and spa and outstanding showers/bathrooms. It also has a leash free dog park. CG users cannot use the resort amenities! This CG is close to the Arches and Canyon-lands Natl Parks and is a outstanding destination park. The resort is $10/night more than the CG but well worth it. We will stay here again when visiting this area.

This is a good park for a one night stay. It is not close to the Casino of the same name and is not affiliated with it. The sites are close together and alternate east/west. It is Big Rig friendly and the water/elec were adequate. The park could use some serious landscaping. It is in a rather odd section of town, but off the main highway so is quiet. We had some deer visit us while we were there. While not a destination park, we would stay here again if passing through. No pool/spa.

Kid friendly and lots to do. Large play area for the kids. Pets can be walked around the outside of the CG., or allowed to run free in the wilderness outside the park. Close to Yellowstone National Park. A little on the expensive side but being in a tourist area, it was expected. Walking distance to town. Negatives were the mosquitoes, mosquitoes, and more mosquitoes, and no pool/spa. Big Rig friendly and clean restrooms. No fires was a plus for us. Would stay here again. Looked at the other parks in the area and would not stay in them.

There are two campgrounds at BB State Park, North Shore and North Fork. We stayed at North Fork which is 14mi west of Cody. North Shore is 9mi west of Cody. This is a beautiful park with full hookups around one loop. The other two loops are non hookup, but there is a dump station. Acres of open area and off the highway enough so no road noise. View of the reservoir from almost everywhere. We would certainly stay here again. We were there for a week, before heading to Yellowstone.

Nice campground fairly close to the reservoir. Big Rig friendly, wide level sites. Mostly a fishing campground, not a kid friendly destination type facility. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again if passing through. Only negatives are the dusty road conditions and the many trains that pass through in the night.

Nice open feeling to the park. Picking a site was a little confusing because of how they have it laid out. Mostly dirt and sand. Price is right though. Big Rig friendly. We are 65' with toad and did not have to unhook. Negatives are: No sewers but there is a dump station, train noise although we did not hear them inside the coach, dirt and sand everywhere and no amenities other than the bathrooms and a post office. We would stay here again if passing through the area, but only for a night or two. Not a destination CG.

Very nice COE campground, but controlled by the State so no discounts. Close enough to Denver yet far enough to be away from the crowds. Large, off leash dog park with two lakes for them to play in. Only negative is it is too far from the camping to be able to walk. Same with the swim beach. Lots of room between sites and easy for Big Rigs. R/C airport on site, and lots of space to ride bicycles. We enjoyed our stay here and would stay again.

We were in a waterfront site facing Tillamook Bay. It is not on the ocean but close enough. It is in the Port Of Garibaldi so there is a lot of activity. Good restaurants within easy walking distance. Level sites, easy access for Big Rigs but not the pull throughs. I would have given a 10 but the Wi-Fi kept dropping. Steam engine tours within walking distance. Coast Guard station and lumber mill nearby, but we were not bothered by any noise. Great clamming and crabbing in the Bay at low tide. Very clean campground and attentive owners on site. We would stay here again.
