We have stayed here twice before but this time seemed like things are headed the wrong way. Check in was just Ok. The interior roads and pull throughs are still great however for big rigs. Convenient to east or westbound travel. Old town St Charles isn't what it used to be either. Our main issue however was with the cable TV system. Seems they don't have digital cable so they wanted to loan is a digital converter box to use the analog cable. To do so, I would have had to run a cable through a window and somehow connect it to the tv. Wouldn't happen or work. The box carries a $35 deposit. This is probably not completely the park's fault but the way they treated us and talked down to us about the situation was an insult that can't be overlooked. Seems like they should upgrade their system like other parks across the country or don't advertise they have cable. WiFi also was subpar so couldn't use it.

Very narrow and confusing interior roads. Gravel and muddy sites. Highway noise was high. Somewhat typical KOA--gravel and narrow interior roads and gravel sites. Very friendly staff. Sites are very close together. One thing to know is this campground is a long way from Denver. Long way to the trash dump. Very tight turn into and out for big rigs. Not a great stop for us. We won't return.

This review is for the resort portion, which is top notch. The campground area seems very nice but has gravel parking and sites are closer together. In the resort, wide streets and very wide concrete pads. Some are pull-through but some are pull-in with pretty views of the nearby hills. Most sites are well landscaped, some with large patios. The restroom and showers are very nice, as is the pool. Wi-Fi also very strong and good. This is by far and away the best place to stay in Moab. It is very convenient to town as well as the vast number of things to do in the area. The management is also a major plus. One thing to remember is most campgrounds in Moab fill up fast and the resort here is booked well ahead. Plan accordingly.

Gravel sites are mostly level. Very close to the highway, so truck noise. Pull-throughs are a little short for 45' including a tow. Most fit, though. Very nice owners. Laundry was nice with sufficient number of machines--not much folding room though. Restrooms clean and nice. Wi-Fi adequate. Would stay again if in the area.

Very nice park. Concrete pads and interior roads. Fake grass otherwise. Clean and convenient bathrooms. Good laundry. Convenient to the freeway. Close to casinos. Will stay again.

Also a $6 per day occupancy tax. This is probably the only RV park with relatively good access to San Francisco. About a half mile to the ferry and a similar distance to the bus. Ferry takes about 45 minutes and runs a limited weekend schedule. The park is also convenient to Point Reyes National Seashore (about one hour on a beautiful road). Very crowded park--big rigs with a slide out on both sides are provided two sites. All are back in. Unhook at check in. Staff were truly great--very nice and very informative--a real positive. Restrooms were clean but reminded me of those in military barracks.

Big wide concrete sites. Plenty of room. Nice grass in between. Great place to stay while visiting the wine country. Restrooms are the private all inclusive type and were always clean. Laundry room very small--2 washers, 2 dryers. We liked the park though. One problem though is the entrance-- if you aren't very careful you will miss it. Also, most rigs will need to use the opposite lane to pull in if coming from the south. Also, a GPS directs you to another not big rig friendly gate so call for directions.

Not really for big rigs, although we had no problem. We were in a back-in that was long enough, but these are very few. This is a very small park. All gravel but level. The washrooms were clean. Mostly seasonal and full time residents but all campers were well maintained with friendly occupants. Does not take credit cards. Wi-Fi was quite good.

Very nice state park. We stayed here as it is convenient to Crater Lake National park and has room for big rigs. This said, the road into the park is virtually one lane when in a big rig. Interior roads are adequate with care. Big rig sites are pull-throughs and we found these very nice. Good restrooms if needed. Sites are huge, with neighbors not close at all. A cool feature is the nearby logging museum that you can access via a very nice level trail that cuts under the main road. I highly recommend the museum. No Wi-Fi and with the trees no satellite. But who cares when in a beautiful area?

Interesting park that is very convenient for visiting Portland. We were in the new section that had nice concrete pads with plenty of room for our larger motorhome. There are many permanent residents on this park but they are restricted to newer units and upkeep rules are enforced. Our only issue was the distance to the restrooms and laundry, although one restroom unit was nearby but under construction. Wi-Fi was good most of the time with numerous towers for strong signals. Some local tips: the light rail station is close with adequate parking so one can get downtown or to all parts of the city. Don't even think of driving or taking I-5 before 10 AM. Also, there is a very good (but maybe a little pricey for some) restaurant on the River nearby called Salty's. We had a very good meal while watching a great sunset there.

Very nice park centered in the wine area of Washington. In fact ,you could walk to a series of tasting rooms. There are also restaurants within walking distance. Sites are paved but narrow. Big rigs need care pulling onto them. Staff very nice and helpful. There was a wine tasting party while we were there. Bathrooms were very nice. Would stay again.

Nice park. We have stayed before and will stay again, as it is convenient for our visits to this area. Nice level sites bordered with mostly privacy hedges. Interior roads are paved. Good clean restrooms. Wi-Fi was good at times, slow at others so used AT&T otherwise. They do charge extra for cable TV, which is a real put off. Very nice and friendly staff.

OK park just off of highway 20. Modified but adequate pull-throughs. Mostly back-in sites. Restrooms not so good. Wi-Fi slow but adequate for general use. Nice open areas which made the park feel like a park.

Price represents a promotion. This is a membership club resort. This is not a good campground for big rigs, as there are narrow and confusing interior roads. Sites were not level and were dirt. Restrooms were inconvenient and uphill from most sites. Reception was unsatisfactory--long wait with one person who was there but didn't even try to help us check in. First site would not accommodate our four slides so they found us another. Why they didn't give us one that fit our rig initially is quite unacceptable. We will not stay here again.

This is a pretty park with a great staff. Plenty of space for bigger rigs but do need some care on the interior roads from the trees. Flowers and foliage everywhere makes this a true oasis. Convenient to the highway but set far enough away for quiet. We arrived late and all was ready for us for a late check in. Good WiFi. Will stay again.

We have stayed here many times as it's the only game in town but we feel this campground needs to improve. The entrance is a very tight 180 off of a busy road and it dips down and is gravel and mud going into the CG. Interior roads are poor and we had heavy rain with which the CG has inadequate drainage. Runoff caused heavy erosion on the narrow interior roads. Until the roads are improved we will not stay here again regardless of convenience of location.

Ownership resort. Nice setting just over the bridge on the Intercoastal. All sites are a little different based on owners preferences. We had a site on the marina. The marina is small by marina standards but it was a pleasant view nevertheless. Some of the sites and facilities are in need of major maintenance as they are a little run down. Could not get Wi-Fi at our site. Cable TV good and we got satellite as well. Can't believe a high priced resort can have such crappy Wi-Fi - virtually non existent when we were parked less than 50' away. Grounds are very nice and the management is exceptional. We ate at the restaurant at the marina and highly recommend it.

Very nice ownership style park. Great pool, clubhouse and layout. All sites are paved as are the roads. Sites are very wide and deep. There are many pull throughs and lake view sites are pull in. Best Wi-Fi we've had in a long time. Laundry could use more machines; there are only 4 washers that we could find in the park. Also, For some weird reason we were unable to get satellite TV. I think a palm tree was just in the way, but still the provided cable was plenty. We found the park to be quite isolated and with a significant amount of traffic a pain just to go for groceries. The beaches too are about 20 minutes away. Found two great restaurants--Tin Top and Jesse's. Check them out. Check your directions to the park carefully. If you are coming from the north on highway 59 the street sign for Brinks-Willis is very short and small. There are no signs for the RV park.

This is an ownership park and has been around for some time. This makes it an extremely tight park on the interior roads but the skilled management seemed to totally know how to get big rigs into the sites. Roads and sites are all paved. Sites are fairly narrow but with great landscaping everything seems very private. Wi-Fi not so good. Pool is nice, but we didn't get to the clubhouse. The entrance to the park is quite hard to see. It's actually the driveway to an adjacent water park. Use care to locate the turn. Check-in by the way, is through the entrance gates and well into the park. Don't stop at the water park office as we did! You will definitely want to unhook the tow upon arrival. We'll stay here again.

Very nice ownership park. We camped on the river part and enjoyed it. There is a huge clubhouse with daily activities. The pool too, is very nice and active. Sites are spacious and deep. Wi-Fi could gave been much better, ended up using AT&T via our hotspot. The entrance is a little tight so you'll need to unhook the tow before going through the gates.

Very nice ownership park and very convenient to Key West. We stayed in a waterfront site and it had a great view of the bay. Each site has a nice patio or tiki hut. Interior roads and pads all paved. Wi-Fi very weak at our site and we gave up after a couple of days. Bathrooms are part of the pool complex and could be a long walk. We hope to return.

Nice park. Small, well maintained CG. Has 10 marina/waterfront sites, 2 ultra premium waterfront, and a mix of others just back from the water and small marina. Good in and out for big rigs. Gravel throughout with level sites. All sites have picnic tables. Clubhouse with a nice laundry facility and one restroom (toilet only) for the entire park. It is is open 9 am to 8 pm. There is a nice pool as well. Cable TV is provided and so is a very iffy Wi-Fi. We gave up on Wi-Fi after the first day as the data rate was almost nonexistent. In fact, if there was a good Wi-Fi I would rate the park a 10.

An ownership park that only accepts never model class A motorhomes. The sites are spacious and the landscaping in the park is superb. There were no restrooms other than at the area around reception and the pools. I found this to be a little odd. Also, If you wanted to walk to the main facilities the route was convoluted and made for a long walk. The only Wi-Fi was at the clubhouse/ pool which was very inconvenient. While the owned sites are impressive, temporary travelers are placed in sites with no amenities at all, not even a picnic table or chairs! In addition, The area around the outside of the park is a little seedy and run down with few, if any, nearby restaurants that had street appeal or were recommended. Groceries were at least a couple of miles away with extreme traffic. Wal-Mart was close though if that's what you like. All in all a very nice park but in a not so great location and overpriced for what you get.

An ownership park that is more a full function community than a typical RV park. Park was well maintained and landscaped. There was a nice laundry and shower facility. Our site was narrow and not easy to back our 40' motorhome into -- had to pay particular attention to the shed the owners had on the site. I question if any of the sites I saw could take a longer rig. No Wi-Fi which is totally ridiculous but there was cable TV. There are numerous amenities but as we were only there for two nights so we did not participate in any. Would stay again.

Good campground for an overnight stop. Close to interstate which is convenient but there is some traffic noise. Gravel roads and parking . Somewhat narrow interior roads but shouldn't cause problems. The sites though are pretty narrow son you'll be close to your neighbors. Very nice people working there. We'll stay again.

Good KOA. Interior roads are a little tight but I didn't have a big problem with them. We stayed in the open pull thru area as we were in for service at the nearby Freightliner facility. Sites here were gravel and level. Some others in the park aren't so level but there are great sites up in the trees for other types of campers. The sites are long enough for all big rigs but are a little on the narrow side. Satellite reception was great and the ATT service was very good as well. Park is close to the freeway but we didn't hear it at all. Great management and staff. We'll be staying here again.

This is an older KOA with relatively narrow interior roads. Tight turn into and out of the park. Our 40' did OK but longer rigs may have problems. Our site was gravel but not very level and somewhat short as we just got the toad onto the pad. Nice park with trees in the cool of the hills. Restrooms were nice and modern. Staff was great and helpful. Close to the Blue Ridge Parkway with lots to see and do in the area.

The rate is for a premium site on the ocean front. Our site was a back-in, and we faced the dunes and had a reasonable glimpse of the ocean. The beach obviously was close. Lots of sand. Pads are paved with a small patio with picnic table. They charge for cable TV but we had good satellite reception. Wi-Fi was very weak at our site. Its a long way from the beach sites to the office, recreation room, and pool if you want to use them. Campground has a good number of restrooms and showers. My only complaint is that it seems too pricy for what you get.

This is a average park and not necessarily good for those with longer motor homes. Narrow interior roads with trees--we were OK but you needed to use care. Very few sites available in March so I suspect it remains crowded all year. Site with 50A FHU are all back in. The pads are asphalt as are the interior roads. Good clean restrooms. Probably won't stay here again.

We have stayed here several times while visiting the area. This is about the only place to stay near Omaha or even Lincoln so it is usually busy. Not so in mid March! The sites are quite nice and relatively wide but this time the park was a mud fest with numerous pot holes in the mostly dirt/gravel interior roads and many of the sites. We weren't able to stabilize and level on one of the premium pads as our jacks (using wood footpads) sunk into the goo. Thankfully we were able to move to a firmer site. This is a good park but I really wish they would do something with the interior roads. Hopefully they will this year as all the roads are in horrible shape after winter. Warning to those with largish rigs (ours is 40') the turn into the park is a tight 180 turn with a slight downhill. Use care.

This is not really an RV park for transients. There are only 6 or 7 spots--all back in for non permanent campers. Sites are deep and quite good. They are gravel with a concrete "patio" and apron. WiFi was good as was satellite reception. Staff do not seem interested nor prepared for transients so no brochures for park or area information. Reception, in fact, left me cold. Road into the park is virtually one lane and quite potholed. We will not stay here again.

This is a basic KOA with some needed site improvements underway. We were just here overnight and it was good foe a short stay. As seems to be common in KOAs, the WiFi was poor at best with continual drop offs however we had a good AT&T signal. Good satellite reception as well. We would stay again if in the area.

Very nice park which has good sized sites that accommodate all sizes of units. This park also has the best campground hosts (all of them!) we have ever met. Great people and the owner who recently took over the property is super involved and has some good ideas to improve the campground more. WiFi for us was iffy but that issue should go away with the improvements. We really like the park and the area and we will stay again in the future.

We like this park, and this was our third stay. It is super convenient to I-10 as well as shopping and restaurants. Sites are mostly pull through and are nice and wide. They offer longer ones for the longest rigs. Our 40' fits fine in the "normal" sites. Sites are fine packed gravel more like a park path instead of the normal large gravel. The park grooms these after each departure. The clubhouse is over the top, and there is a nice patio off the back. My one complaint is that it's under bathroomed with just one toilet. We will return.

Overall a very good park especially for shorter stays. Very few seasonals, and most of these are in an area separate from short term. Unlike other reviewers, we were unable to get full use out of the Internet as our neighbor blocked clear access to one of the towers. We could only access from the bedroom, but when they moved on reception was good. If this park spent a little effort on landscaping this would easily be a 10, but the outside area in which to sit or grill is just gravel and dirt with no shrubbery nor any picnic tables.

We like this park, and this is our second trip. This place is no frills, but it's really close to the Bosque del Apache wildlife refuge which is a world class place to visit when the cranes and snow geese are wintering. Great owner, full hookups with some 50 amp. No showers but the birds won't care. When staying here you have to get a green chile cheeseburger at the Buckhorn Tavern as they are rated as #7in the US for burgers. We'll stay again.

Price represents a senior rate. Note though that if you don't have a Texas state park pass they charge $7 per person per day extra!. Still the park is convenient to I-10 and is super quiet. It is a bit tight for those of us with 40' or greater. Just take it easy and you won't have a problem. We'll stay again.

Price is Passport America. Good campground especially for an overnight or visiting the area. Good all concrete interior roads and parking pads. Great reception and people, and they have a free breakfast! The sites are very narrow however, and when our 4 slides were out we couldn't walk to the rear of the rig mostly because of excessive mud. Even without the mud you couldn't really use the limited space between rigs. There is freeway noise but then again it's convenient to the freeway. Wi-Fi was good, and ATT service was strong as well. We'll stay again.

Price based on weekly rate. First of all, this was our second time staying here, and now I can state that this is not a place for "big rigs". Our 40' could only fit in one site out of three tries. Wi-Fi is super iffy and although we got a good signal sometimes at our site, the speed was poor to nonexistent. There are absolutely no amenities other than it is super quiet, and the location is the best in the Rockport area. Low tree branches are a real hazard to a tall rig both 5th wheel and class A's. The bathrooms were not cleaned for the entire week of our stay. Hidden Oaks is fast becoming a trailer park and is certainly not a "resort".

We have stayed here many times before, but somehow the park seemed a notch or two lower for a rating. For one thing we loved the "river view" sites which are a premium price but this year they wouldn't allow us to pull our motorhome facing into the river as we've done in the past. So why pay more for a view that one can't view. Seems like it's all set up for trailers or 5ers. So we stayed in a "basic" site and the costs seemed way too high. We'll probably stay again as it's still the best gig near town.

Rate is with senior pass. We have stayed here before but this was the first time in the NEW section. This is a huge improvement as it's now FHU and nice concrete pads.

Rate is with PA. This is a fishing camp that has RV hookups, best if you want to fish. An RV park is a stretch. Narrow gravel interior roads and sewer hookups that are way, way back. With an extension we still barely were able to connect. WiFi was great however, among the very best we've had. Great staff, very helpful. One thing to consider regardless of the rating is location and this one is out there, not close to anything.it's about 15 to 20 minutes from the interstate. Quiet though.

We stayed here for only one night but will return and stay again. It's convenient to I-70 and close to a lot that St. Louis offers. St. Charles is an interesting touristy town. The CG has an onsite restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised by our meals. There are also great eating places in the old town about a mile away. Wi-Fi worked great as did AT&T signal. Nice relatively wide concrete paved interior roads and parking pads. My only complaint was the train noise-- they ran all night on a bridge just to the north of the park. I'll run my fans next time for white noise!

This is a good park for big rig over night. I think it also would be nice for families as the overall campground is large and the spaces are roomy. They supposedly had Wi-Fi but there was no signal. Restrooms seemed pretty good. Very convenient to the Interstate. We would stay again.

We stayed over night here and found this to be a good park for this purpose. It's somewhat tight especially on the entry for larger rigs but no real problem with our 40' plus tow. Wi-Fi was not very good as the signal went up and down. Could not access AT&T either. Good sized pull throughs, all gravel interior and sites. Good power and water. Good access to interstates. Would consider for an over night again.

From a big rig perspective this KOA needs some work. It's biggest problem for larger rigs is the trees and shrubs. While these are nice to look at and add a certain lushness to a park they are totally in the way for getting in or out of a site. I had to blackout of my space because I could not turn clear of a tree and big bush. It would have been tight regardless as the interior roads while paved are very narrow. They have a sign warning everyone to use a pressure regulator as the water was over 100 psi. Very noisy as trains go nearby constantly. It is convenient to downtown and I will consider staying again for this reason only.

Rate represents a group. This park is in a great setting and many sites have incredible views of the Klamath river. Sites are arranged for front windshield viewing. Big rigs beware as the way in is a very tight turn, but doable. We had no problems with pur 40'. Downside of the park is the sites are fairly close together and no 50amp. There is a boat ramp and dock available as well. Wi-Fi is an additional fee per day, but quite fast. We had no cell phone but Verizon was available. Management is very good and quite willing to assist with anything. We will stay here again.

We were part of a group, thus the rate quote. Interesting park but even though our group possessed rigs of 40' or greater, it's hard to recommend this park for rigs this size. There are nice long pull throughs, but it's tight going in and out. Trees were also an issue and a few need to be trimmed. Although we didn't have any problems several in our group experienced low voltage and power issues. There is a German restaurant at the park and the beaches are within walking distance.

Price reflects that we paid as a group. Nice small campground. Some permanent residents and summer cottages. Pull throughs were available and were positioned for a more scenic view from a motorhomes front windshield. Not the beach, but a area of nice dense foliage. Wi-Fi was good and AT&T signal strong. Overall a pretty good park from which to visit the magnificant Bandon beach.

Price reflects a group caravan and the actual price was included. This is a busy, dusty, and very crowded campground with no apparent organization to the camp sites. They seemed to just cram sites wherever they could. Sites were also poorly marked. Sites were 30 amp and mostly back in. Interior roads dirt/gravel and very tight. Not a good campground for big rigs. Poor Wi-Fi connection.

Price reflects a group caravan so fee included. Not a good park for big rigs. While the sites can sort of accommodate 40-45' rigs, they are all back in and tight. Also on entry there are numerous obstacles making for even tighter turns. This and 30 amp only makes me not recommend this park. Note for smaller rigs: there is a noisy lumberyard nearby going 24/7.

We will stay here again for sure. Wi-Fi and cable are extra charges. I received satellite just fine and AT&T was readily available.

This park is absolutely not, repeat not, big rig friendly. Very narrow interior roads. Tight entrance and exit. Older style KOA. The road leading to our pull through ( note that the park escort suggested I disconnect my TOAD as the road was too tight of a turn!) was so tight that I hit tree limbs and leaves and then hit and bent my OASIS exhaust on a rock that was in the road! This should stand as a warning to anyone over 38'. Other than our issues it's just a typical smallish KOA. We won't return.

This is one of the best campgrounds where we have stayed in the past 5 years. Definitely big rig friendly. Trees are trimmed, sites are long and wide. Views are great. Management is top notch. They care and appear eager to maintain a great CG. Toilets and showers spotless! Good hiking trails on site and numerous cool things to do in the area. We went to the National Bison Refuge which is about a hour away but the road to/from is so beautiful that few words can describe. We plan to return and stay awhile.

This is a first class RV park. Management is exceptional. They are not only friendly but are truly there to help you. They even put on a Labor Day picnic for all guests! Good CG for big rigs with ample pull throughs. There are quite a few seasonals here but they are quite friendly as well. Toilets and showers are problematic as there is only one of each for men and for women. Laundry too, as there is only one washer and dryer for the camp. We really like this CG and will stay again.

This is an OK park. We stayed here for several nights as we wanted to tour the surrounding area. There are a number of permanent residents, but that is not a problem. For bigger rigs the parks works pretty well. We had a back-in but easy in, easy out. There are some pull-throughs which would work well too. Management was friendly and they try to keep up the park. More work in the restrooms would be nice. Park is the only one in town that is not a trailer park. We'll stay here again.

Nice, no frills park. We stopped overnight. Not much to do around here unless you fish or hunt. Still we enjoyed the stop and we did have a great steak dinner at the resort's steakhouse. Ask for a seat with a view.

This is not a park for big rigs. Numerous sites have only 30 amp and most have big time tree issues. This would be a good park for 5ers and trailers.

We have stayed in this park numerous times and will in the future. It is really well managed and the staff are friendly and really helpful. It is a crowded park but somehow it doesn't seem crowded. We stay in the "deluxe" pull through section which offers a patio, fire pit, and patio furniture and, in my opinion, the best location for larger motorhomes.

We have found this to be an OK overnight stop in mid Illinois. There are a few good pull through sites but some are not level. For those with motorhomes, watch the trees! They don't trim them and you probably will hit them on the way in or out. This is my #1 beef. Toilets and showers are nice, large, and clean.

This is the worst KOA we have ever stayed in and we tend to stay in them fairly often. First there is the added $5 per day "resort" fee attached to the relatively high daily rate. Second this is a vast party land swelled with kids, pets, and drunken adults. Restrooms were not cleaned often enough for the hordes of people. Truly disgusting. We booked into a deluxe full hookup-- the attendant provided direction and a map which put us in the wrong direction. After much difficulty getting in the proper direction we started to hook up and discovered that the "deluxe" site was only 30 amp! So we had to move again. Finally there is no parking control for extra cars so people were parked in all sorts of directions making the already narrow interior roads even more narrow. We will never stay here again.

One of the best KOAs we have been in. We stayed in a deluxe site (hence the higher rate). These are fantastic with a large wood deck, patio table and chairs, a two person porch swing, and a large fire pit with seating. Park is sufficiently off the freeway so nice and quiet. I marked it down from a 10 because the roads and parking spots are tight especially with a motorhome. You need to be careful on your way in/out. Nevertheless, we will be staying here again.

This is not really a good location for "big rigs" as the interior roads are narrow and the CG is 1 mile up a steep winding road. What could be great views for campers is relegated to the office and swimming pool. 90% of the sites are seasonals or full timers. Bathrooms were not cleaned for the two days we were here. Showers were so far away from the campsites that you would have to drive or go for a long hike. We had a good pull through, but there was nothing pleasant about the site: gravel with views of cabins. This might be a good park for a short stop in the area: if you don't have a motorhome or trailer over 35 feet.

We chose this as an overnight. Bad choice. First all this CG is very hard to get to. You have to drive on some narrow roads through the middle of some small towns. They say they are in Springfield but that's a stretch, as it could take an hour to get here. Very old park with lots of seasonal/permanents. Very tight pull throughs. This park just isn't up to KOA standards. Unless you want/ need to be in this area, I don't recommend staying here.

Price includes Good Sam discount. This is a well managed older park. Great people running the place and very helpful with area info. This park can accommodate larger rigs--our 40' fit fine. Couple of tight turns, but I've seen worse. There are only 4 50amp sites. Several are pull throughs which are really long. Not very level but no problem with the levelers. Park is very wooded so no satellite and no TV other than 3 channels on the provided "cable hookup". Extremely low water pressure-- not useable direct-- had to use storage tank/ pump. No W-iFi to the site although there is a nice area with a free hot spot. Bathrooms good/nice pool. Lots to do in the area.

The rate includes extra person and tax. We opted for a "best ocean view" site and it was worth the extra price! I think that otherwise this park would just be average to ordinary. But the view sites were great: hedges on both sides and the windshield looking at the bay. No problem connecting heading in if you have sewer extensions. WiFi was fee based but we got AT&T OK so used that for Internet. They do have a free hot spot that we used once, but it was quite far from most sites. Toilets also were few and far between. One cool thing about this park is you can go to one of the nearby lobster pounds and get fresh and cooked seafood to bring back to the RV! There is also a free shuttle to the National Park but we didn't use it. Cable TV is provided with good quality. Overall a nice but pricey park. We will return next time in the area.

Rate includes extra adult and tax. This park was a huge disappointment. Other reviews made it sound so nice. It wasn't. First of all I would give a 9 for the view from our campsite but it ends there. Management was the most unhelpful I have ever seen. I phoned ahead to inquire about getting diesel. No one knew of a station let alone tried to check. Staff didn't know if my site was a pull- in or back- in. We had to drive to check as it mattered which way to enter the circle. Wi-Fi cost $3 an HOUR! Your choice was pay for a full month or by the hour. Next we found we could not use our mobile phone there as the only tower was in Canada. This isn't the camps fault but added to the Wi-Fi sting. The laundry is very small, cramped, and only open from 10am to 10 pm. Lastly, the showers and toilets were in the office area which is about two blocks from the 50 amp and view sites camping area and this is up a steep hill! We will not return, there are better CGs elsewhere.

This is an average Canadian campground. All grass parking. Narrow roads but no real problem with our 40'. Wi-Fi is only in a hot spot quite a way from most campsites. Pool looked nice but didn't use. Restrooms very dated but clean. Very low water pressure--had to fill fresh tank and use the water pump to shower. I like the park-like setting. I would stay again on an overnight basis if in the area.

Nice park with open and wide spaces. Grass parking. 30 amp only. Wi-Fi good. Satellite reception easy. Bathrooms very dated and just adequate but clean. Nice to find a wide open pull through site in Canada. There is quite a bit to do in the area but for us it was just an overnight. Will return sometime in the future.

Rate included extra adult. Really a great campground. The views are spectacular. Sites are either back- in or pull- in. We had a 50 amp site that was on the upper row but after a couple of days another rig arrived and blocked our view. I'd recommend sites 40-45 which are 30 amp but will have unrestricted views of the ocean. Interior roads are gravel with the pads a mix of gravel and grass-- some were a little muddy when we were there. Plenty of width to maneuver. Wi-Fi was good as was satellite reception. When in Perce, you have to take a boat to Bonaventure Island. Plan a day to do it right or you can just take the boat over and back.

This campground is not really suitable for rigs over 35' even if they say so. Ours is 40' and it was really tight. Campsites are close! Narrow, and not really level. With our slide out and our neighbors out they seemed to almost touch. I would like to say then that my rating is for smaller rigs. This is a really nice park with great views of the bay from some of the sites. Very nice and super helpful management. Facilities are clean and well maintained. One complaint was the water pressure it was really low so I used my water pump and took water from my fresh water tank. Satellite reception good as was Wi-Fi.

Stayed here for 2 nights primarily as access to the nearby Provincial park. Nice for a bigger rig like ours to be able to pull through. Not many of these in Canada. The rate is passport America plus one extra adult. There is free WiFi but very weak to iffy. 30 amp or less only, no sewer but a good dump station. Satellite reception was excellent as there are no trees. Don't plan on doing laundry here. One machine and it's in the women's bath house. Great views of the St Lawrence from some of the outer sites and access to the shoreline. Management is outstanding and were quite helpful.

Very nice and interesting CG. It is actually all grass sites on the property of a really good seafood restaurant. Management and staff were wonderful and totally fluent in English. They directed our 40' right into a super site with full windshield views of the St. Lawrence. Good free WiFi. 30 amp only but with the cool temps not a big deal. We ate at the restaurant and it was so fun and good. Tourist note: we went to the nearby Reford Gardens and this was very nice and worth the trip. Totally enjoyed our one night stop.

Our rate included an extra adult. Put in the context that our rig is 40': nice wide paved interior roads most sites looked very level. Ours was and they are asphalt. 50 amp is available but is in very few sites. Some sites have great views of the St. Lawrence but alas, our 50 amp did not. Trees are an issue for clearance into the site and satellite. We just brushed the tree but no joy on satellite. All sites are back in. WiFi was free and pretty good except it apparently shut down for the celebration of French Canada day which is June 24th. Most park employees were better at English than my French! Great location to stock up on food if taking the Gaspe loop. Also a great place in season to do a whale watch trip. This is the best CG in town!

This CG would not be good for rigs over 40'. There are pull throughs but they are short. Try to get in the front area and definitely not in the cabin or seasonal area-- way too tight. Also, if you really need 50 amp reserve well in advance and then double check! We booked early but didn't double check and were put in a back- in 30 amp site. With the super hot weather we moved to a 50 amp site but these are few and far between. Had to pay $2 for 50 amp. And pay $2 a day for Wi-Fi. Still, this is a good place to stay while visiting Quebec City. If you do stay I highly recommend first signing up for the half day tour bus as they will pick you up at the CG. Also easy drive to the old city. Laundry was not good-- high cost and slow dry time.

Rate includes an extra person. Location is about 20-25 minutes from Ottawa on the Quebec side. Not close but convenient. Site is an older CG that is still suitable for rigs such as ours (40') but only on a limited scale. There are a few 50 amp sites and the power was needed as the temps got up to 100*F. Check beforehand for the few 50 amp sites. Sites were back- in but not too tight. There were trees on our site so no US TV. There was good Wi-Fi but at a small charge. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Excellent English too! Would stay here again.

Nice older facility, but it has good site spacing and took our 40' just fine. For Canada it had 50 amp power but all sites are back in. No pull through sites. Trees are present but not a problem for satellite. There are a couple of sites though, that might prevent a signal. Wi-Fi is fee based but, if I remember correctly, it was super reasonable with a strong signal. This CG is convenient to highway 401 but is too far from Toronto to use as a base of operations. Great staff, by the way. We will definitely stay again when in this area.

This is a nice park that is convenient to I-75 as well as the local Southern Michigan area. Really nice for a state park. We did have to pay to enter the park, but that is included in our night's fee. Nice wide sites and right on Lake Erie. Most sites have a good view. Few trees but that gave a great satellite connection. No wi-fi, but picked up good signal from AT&T so used that for internet. Very big rig "friendly". We will be staying here again.

Rate is passport America. WI-FI is $2 per day extra. This is an older park with mostly seasonals. This park has an odd layout which results a hodge podge look and feel. Interior roads are quite narrow but because of the layout traffic is two way! Things could get hairy when two rigs meet going in opposite directions. Parking areas were relatively level but it's a thin layer of gravel over dirt. It rained so the whole pad became a soupy mess. WI-FI is very good as are the restrooms and laundry. For those who choose to stay in this park should be advised that the road fords a creek if you come from the south. It runs all year. We will stay elsewhere if we visit this area again.

Rate is Good Sam plus $2 for an extra person. We have stayed at this park previously and it has gone downhill fast. Needs work everywhere. Some sites may or may not have working cable or even cable connections. We received satellite fine so not a big deal. Bathrooms, showers, and laundry are all clean but again rundown. There is a clubhouse but it too is a shell. All sites have asphalt parking pads and most are pull through. The pads however are quite narrow. All sites have a patio mostly concrete. Most don't have picnic tables. Wi-Fi was good and strong. Best part about this park is the total quiet and the incredible star shows at night. This park does have a new and active manager who is trying to get the place back to a resort condition. I wish them well. We'll stay again.

Rate is Good Sam. This is a top flight park just off I-10 and convenient to restaurants and shopping. Walmart is very closely as are other stores. The staff are great and there is a huge lounge area and patio that is more like a modern hotel than an RV Park. Sites are good sized and will accommodate a big rig and tow, in most cases. Wi-Fi worked well as did the cable TV. Bathrooms and laundry were also quite nice. We will definitely stay here again.

The main feature of this CG is that it is adjacent to the Bosque de Apache National Wildlife Refuge. The refuge is a tremendous and beautiful place, by the way. There is absolutely nothing special about this park--no cable TV no Wi-Fi ,no pool, etc., but we really liked it and even extended a day. The owner is really a great and helpful guy. The park is simply peaceful. Sites are super wide and great for all sized rigs. Another interesting fact is the small town of San Antonio boasts two restaurants with great chile cheeseburgers. I highly recommend a visitor try both. The Buckhorn tavern was featured on a Bobby Flay throw down (Bobby lost). Back to the park, we will return for another stay.

Price is with a military ( retired) discount. This is a nice, well run park that keeps working to improve. It was a great one night stop off I-40. Super clean restrooms and showers. Sites are all gravel and not marked particularly well but this isn't a problem. The CG is at the end of the runway for the local airport and the planes are noisy but the good news is this is a really small airport so small jets and low volume. Wi-Fi was nonexistent but AT&T worked great.. Besides the poor Wi-Fi they also charge extra for cable TV but we received satellite fine. We will stay again.

This is a great CG. There are no amenities other than the great outdoors but that's all we need. The staff are also really great to work with. We have a 40' rig and the campsite we were assigned was impossibly unlevel and super tight. The staff helped us find a suitable site for our stay in fact, the one we ended up with was much, much better and we will request this one on future visits. This though is a lesson to readers with big rigs-- caution many sites are very unlevel and tight--others though are certainly capable of hosting the biggest rigs. An added nice touch is the double dump station so you can get away faster than if there was only one.

This park is way too expensive for it's condition and services. First of all it is mostly a trailer park with the trailers in a mix of condition. There are many permanents and seasonals. We were placed in a tight back in with older trailers on each side. There are pull throughs available but even though we booked early we couldn't seem to get one. Wi-Fi was not working even when we went to the office. We ended up at Starbucks. No cable either. This place needs serious updating from the restrooms to the laundry to all other services. We will not consider this park for future visits.

We stayed at this park based on previous reviews and picked a "water view" site which comes at a premium price. What you need to know is all you get is a glimpse of the water as there is a city park between you and the Bay of Coronado. You can pull in forward and get the "view" from your windshield which is nice. Great areas to walk as the park is adjacent to the park as well as the very nice marina. Now what I consider as a big negative: the sites are very tight. With us pulled in and extending the 4 slides there was really no room to park the jeep. I had to really squeeze it in. There was absolutely no room to unfurl chairs , etc. This seemed to be the case for all "big rigs". Ours is 40'. Check carefully with them when you book.

Good overnight stop for us. Did laundry and the facility was nice. As can be expected many seasonals. The RV area is just a huge gravel lot with no site plan. Works as we just pulled in and didn't have to unhook the tow. If there was Wi-Fi we never found a server. AT&T worked fine though. Would stay again.

Price is the weekly rate. This was our second time at this park and probably our last. This is a huge place filled mostly with permanent seasonal homes. There is one area to the rear of the park that houses motorhomes and other RVs. These are almost all back in. There is a very small and highly coveted area with quasi pull throughs but this is in the "pet" only area. They are really short sites. Our 40' touched the hedge at the rear of the site and just was off the road. Not an easy place to back in. If you don't book early you could get placed in a lot between the permanent seasonal houses. This makes for a new sport of backing. This park has all the perks for seasonals but I don't feel at home when we stay for just a week or two. Laundry facilities are nice but not enough for such a huge park. Ditto for showers and toilets.

This was a great place to overnight while traveling on I-10. Plenty of room for our 40' keeping the jeep attached. Not many in the park this time of year so really quiet. The are nice covered picnic tables. I rated this a 9 as there are no sewer hook ups. There is also No Wi-Fi but got AT&T with a strong signal. No problem in the open spaces of west Texas to get satellite. There is an interesting element of this park and that there is a natural spring there that was turned into a very large swimming pool and even in January there were folks swimming. We will stay here again.

The price reflects a premium river view site. This is a great park, we stayed here last year as well. How can you beat a park with a very nice saloon right in the park? We were able to pull straight in so that the front of the motorhome faced the river. Great view and a good area in which to walk. Many deer wander the river bank as well. There is an all season adults only indoor pool and other amenities which we didn't use. We will be back.

Very outdated park. Many winter seasonals. Hodge podge layout. Bathrooms are woefully outdated and in poor condition. Laundry is outside barely under cover but functional. Could not get satellite for the trees. Also had to work wonders with 100' of cable to access a cable connection. A plus for this campground is the short pleasant walk to the beach which is really A+. Also a strong positive is the access to the nature trails of the adjoining bird refuge. Might stay again if they start some improvements. Price is based on the weekly rate.

We stayed here overnight while traveling on I-80. Turned out to be a nice spot to stop. The only issue was we arrived late and started to pull into a "pull through" but quickly discovered that it didn't have sewer services which we were told they had. Luckily, the site manager showed up and directed us to the proper site, with us carefully trying to avoid hitting one of the numerous trees en-route. The actual site which was easy to get into and had all the amenities. We were very pleased with the campground, and only give it an 8 because the bath house entrance was on the opposite side of our camp site and while clean, really needs an upgrade. We would stay there again without hesitation.

This is really a great campground. Set around a large meadow with hills as a great background. Deer feed in the meadow in the evenings and can easy be seen from most sites. You can hear the coyotes at night, too. All the facilities are top notch, and the sites are fairly large. There are only two bath houses which makes a drive or a walk necessary from some camp sites if you want to use them, but they are very nice and well maintained, as is the laundry. What we didn't read in other comments is there is one of the finest bike paths in the US just at the gate of the campground. This is the George Mickelson Trail from which you can ride 109 miles from start to finish! We opted to ride from one of the trail heads near Hill City, but we will ride more when we return. We highly recommend this campground.

We stayed here for 3 nights to visit our son and found this to be a very pleasant campground. Close to both Lincoln and Omaha is also a plus. The sites were all well furnished with a patio and very nice "lawn" furniture and fire pits. The staff was most pleasant and helpful. The bath facilities were clean and well maintained. The pull through sites for larger rigs were about the best we've seen so far as it was easy in/easy out. A good place for an overnight stop as well. We will stay here again.

This was an overnight stop on our way east, but I wouldn't recommend this as it is literally right on I-74 with nothing between the campground and the highway to stop the noise. Furthermore, it is also on a railroad line, and there were several trains passing by. Nothing could drown out the noise. The bathrooms were not very clean as there was dust and dirt all around--it appears they are just swept out each day. They also need serious updating and lighting. Not the best place for an overnight stop.

First of all this is no longer a state park--it's officially called Stonewall CG as is run by Benchmark Hospitality. This is a very nice CG--flat sites, trees, and nice views and access to the large lake. There are all kinds of amenities, most of the water kind. There is a large marina with paddle boats, kayaks, bicycles, canoes, etc available for a good price. There is also an Arnold Palmer Signature golf course in the park but I don't have any information on it regarding cost. There is also a lodge, restaurants and very good looking "cabins" on the lake. They also offer 10% off the camping prices for senior citizens. The only downside is don't plan on bringing a "big rig" here. We have a 38' MH and there was very little room to back into our spot or extend the slides and it was one of the better sites to back into. You can do it but I would say it's not a good park for 40' and up.

Overall a nice campground. We only stayed overnight but this would make a nice central point to tour this really nice part of Pennsylvania. There are small lakes all around with fishing opportunities. The sites are flat and open without much shade. I agree with the other reviewer in that the sites are a little close for a motorhome. I would also think this would be a very nice place to tent camp as many of the tent sites are right on the lake shore. We will stay here again.

Overall this is a nice campground but I found some areas lacking. One is the bathrooms. While they are clean and well maintained they are full bathrooms: toilet, sink, shower in one room. There are only 4 of the rooms available in the main camp area. There a bath house down at the camp store/pool area but that is a hike. Wi-Fi didn't work. The smallish sites made parking our 38' MH difficult as many TOADS took up some of the roadway reducing the radius. The park is all trees so careful backing is a must. Very few pull throughs. It is also not as close to Gettysburg as we thought. Finally cable costs extra and it's only the very basic channels. We won't stay there again.
