I love this campground. Once you enter the park you are in a different world. the campground is nice with big sites but small and tight pads. Once you are in your site it is great but the roads are narrow and it makes backing in very difficult without going off on the grass and that might be OK but it had rained and we made very big ruts. We have a 33 ft fifth wheel and got a site that was for 40 feet . But the way the trees and the road was set up it took my husband about 20 minutes to finally get the camper in the way we wanted it to. We barely were able to fit our truck in without it being on grass which is not allowed. There are sites where this would not be as much of a problem but it is hard to see which ones are OK and which ones would be an issue. In general if there are trees around your site, it will be difficult with anything over 30 feet. The bathrooms were great except on Saturday when there were many kids at the camp. The reason I rate this camp so high is that it has a vast area to walk and ride a bike that is flat and beautiful. It is very easy to drive to the beach and set up for the day. They do not allow pets on the beach but they do on the nature trails. The sunsets were beautiful. Lots of birds and armadillos. We were out in nature and quiet, but only 10-15 minutes away from a number of restaurants and shopping areas. It was great. We will be back again for even longer.

Fabulous campground. Very small, about 30 sites and those 30 sites had the park to themselves in March. The sites are simply wonderful. They are all different with many of them being immense. There were about 10 sites which were not directly on the river, but you could see the river from your site when you stood up. Paths went directly to the river and a wonderful trail located up and down the river. White squirrels were there and the site itself is very well kept and restrooms spotless. The park has a number of other walking trails with lots of birds. Each site had a nice campfire, picnic table and grill and many had posts and a clothesline to hang wet clothes. There were canoe and kayak rentals. This campground is pretty isolated but it is 20-25 minutes from a great BBQ and seafood restaurant and 45 minutes form St. Marks Wildlife Visitor center. We will be back again. Loved it.( one of our top 10 campsites). Be careful with the campsites and look at pictures because a few of these sites you could not get a camper in because of trees.

Nice big sites, easy to get in, good roads, large older trees and clean restrooms. We will stay here again.

This campground is about 5 miles from the expressway and easy to get to. We stayed in site 143 which was on the lake and very near the restrooms (near camphost). We did not want to unhook so we needed a site that was about 50 feet long and this worked fine (was about 55-60 feet). The restrooms are in very good shape and very clean. The campsites are in terraces overlooking the lake. Each terrace is one way and if you want to get to a different terrace you need to go completely out of campground and then back in. The bottom terrace by the lake appears to have the longest sites and since we arrived in an off season there were many sites to choose from. We selected on near the restroom. There were 3 different sites, electric, full and non electric. You can reserve a particular site if you do so 2 days ahead of time which I recommend. Otherwise, you pick up a registration card and go find a site that is not occupied or reserved and fill out the card and put money in an envelope and drop it off with the camp host or back at the registration site. This system is a bit inconvenient for a single night, but since the camp host took the filled out card and we were right next to them it worked ok. All the sites are back in that we could see and the higher terraces were a little tight if you are not used to backing a large rig in. It was a beautiful and very quiet camp site.

We had a back up site. It backed up to the dog area and as such had unobstructed views of the mountains from the back. It was very nice. Nice picnic table and fire-pit but it was blowing wind so much we did not use much. We were there for 11 nights and it is a great location for access to Many Glacier and up to Logan's Pass and even over to Two Medicine. The food is better in East Glacier but there were several decent restaurants around. Good restrooms and great store that is open until 11 pm. Friendly helpful people . I wish it was a bit wider but honestly all of these western mountain sites seem narrow. Great Verizon signal. Did not use their WiFi system since I had my own hotspot but I heard a lot of people were having trouble with it.

Clean restrooms and easy access to site that was clean and sufficient in size. No picnic table at our site. We were there for the cowboy poetry gathering and this was a very convenient place to stay and I would stay here again. A number of the sites looked like permanent residents but not in a bad sort of way. They seemed to be always cleaning up the bathrooms which was great for us. Site is gravel with some patches of grass and a few trees but it was very well kept. The only thing that did not seem as well kept is the office where you check in but that really did not impact our stay.

Older, very well kept up KOA with lots of shade and friendly service. Sites were very level and showers/bathrooms were plentiful and very clean.

We were in pull-through number 116, and it was wonderful. Private and clean and big. We had a little walk to the restoom/shower but it was quite beautiful. Restrooms were big and spotless. Wonderful bike and hiking trails. Very easy to get to. I would definitely go back.

We stayed in one of their two pull throughs, and the site was very nice, large and near the bathroom. Lots of deer in area. However the bathrooms were not clean, so that is why I give it a 5.

A nice campground: easy to pull in. The bathrooms clean but they are unisex. I hate unisex as a women, because they are never as clean and well kept up as the women's restrooms are, when they are just women's restrooms.

I would always stay at this campground when I am in Estes Park for 3 reasons. 1) Location is outstanding to get into park and into town and to a store. 2) Fantastic views of the mountains, and 3) One of the cleanest bathrooms you are going to find in campgrounds. There are some negatives but we ignored or mitigated them. The negatives are. a) Very impatient and rude man that helps you to your site. b) Tight sites to get into, and c) Gravel roads that need a bit of work. However we picked a site at the end of row which helped us deal with the tight sites.

I did not care for the campground for two reasons. They have one bathroom for a very big and crowded campground. We had to walk 1/2 mile to the bathroom. Also, for a state park or recreation area the sites were very crowded together, and there were some bad smells coming from lake or area we were at. The area around the campground is very scenic so the campsite is convenient, but if you stay here try and get a campsite close to the restrooms.

This is a very nice small park. We really liked it. Nice sites, nice picnic tables and fire-rings. We did not have a lake site but we could easily see the lake from our picnic table. Really liked this small park.

Nice site, very clean bathrooms and showers. Nice trails but it was very dry and hot when we were here. Would be very nice in spring.

Went here because of reviews and I was not disappointed. This is a small and very nice campground. Beautifully landscaped , gravel level sites, easy to get in and out. Nice picnic table and fire pit ring at each site. Also has a fenced in dog run!! The bathrooms were roomy, well decorated, smelled great and were clean. Showers were clean and roomy ..only complaint was that the water came out in fine spray so that when it hit your body it was cooler then what it was as it was coming out. I still enjoyed the shower thoroughly. The only negative this campground has is a train runs across the back of it . This train seems to be mostly short groups and it did not bother my husband and I at all. I will definitely stay here again.

If you don't need to use the restrooms this is a great choice of campgrounds for near Little Rock. The campground itself is clean and attractive with very nice large level sites by the Arkansas River. We stayed in a pull through which was like staying in the parking lot BUT we had great views of river and at night we were right next to Little Rock skyline reflecting in river. You can easily walk to the Clinton Presidential Library and gardens and are within a mile of many restaurants. Nice place to walk dog and have baggies for your use. I would definitely stay here again for a few days but the restrooms are not great. They are industrial boxes set down with one toilet for men and one for women. I did not use women's restroom but husband said at first the men was OK but then a cretin went in and urinated on floor. The attendant warned me that sometimes the shower door does not latch well and water comes out and there was a mop nearby to clean it up.. That was enough for me to confine myself to camper facilities for a night.

Love this state park. Wonderful, huge,paved sites under gorgeous live oaks. Covered picnic tables, campfire pit with grill at each site. You are not on the river, but it is an easy walk to the river and to walk up and down near it. Restrooms are in great condition and are kept spotless. The showers have plenty of pressure and hot water. Area is quiet, but you can walk to many fine dining places in 5-10 minutes. We will definitely be back. All the full hook up sites are very good, but I like ours best which was site 7. Sites 2-5 seemed to get afternoon sun and were hotter while 7,8 and 9 stayed in shade the entire day. The only bad thing I have to say about this park is that there were not any hiking trails to speak of. But for a campground experience it was tops.

This is a strange little campground. It has only been opened up for 6 months. It is in excellent maintenance and the person running this campground will bend over backwards to help you in all ways. It is hard to describe in that this is not a typcial campground. It is very clean and has good restrooms. Additionally it has free laundry machines for your use. Additionally there is a little house on site which is always open and has rocking chairs on the porch. You can use the house and it has 3 sitting areas and another 2 bathrooms in it. There is a large herd of sheep guarded by 2 big dogs right next to the campground and you can go in and see the sheep or wonder out to the several lakes. There are peacocks and other birds kept near the house in pens which are interesting to watch. There a number of antique trucks and cars you can wonder around and look at also. The campground is settled between a large corn field and a creek. It feels like you are in the middle of farm country but you are only 5-10 minutes from all restaurants and shopping. We stayed here 3 days because our truck was broken down and to help us out the owner just lent us his car. There are a number of longer term residents here who keep there area spotless and are very friendly. It is very difficult to see the sign for the park and you can easily miss it. It is a gated campground and the gate is set up I think to close when it gets dark.

The campsites are very nice, clean and well kept. The are large spacious and level. We had to be a little careful lining up our camper to make sure slides cleared but not a big deal. Restrooms were in excellent shape and so were the showers. You are very close to restaurants and stores but you feel pretty isolated in the woods. We went there after severe storms and most of the trails were under water which is why I only give it a 8. Very nice place to spend a few days, but I warn you the mosquitoes were quite bad even in early March.

This park is a little slice of Heaven. We were in an absolutely wonderful site, 267 , by the waterfront with lots of level paved room, and a huge mowed lawn with unobstructed views to the lake. Best site we have ever had. And there were many other fantastic sites. It is first come first serve and we arrived on Monday and had a choice of 2 or 3 lake front sites. in the 200 loop. Bathrooms were clean. Showers are unisex which I do not like as much but they were mostly clean and my husband liked much better because they are big and secure. We have hike all 4 nature trails and the wildflowers are the best we have ever seen anywhere and we have been all over the US . We live 1200 miles away but we will be back to this gem of a state park. It is about 10 to 15 miles to nearest town.

This is a typical big fairly well maintained KOA. The KOA employees are very friendly and helpful. The restrooms and showers were fine. I think they could have used a bit more gravel in places but they had a lot of rain to contend with. The sites were easy to get in and out of. They pick up your garbage each day. It was fine for dogs. I have only given it a 7 because the site itself just did not have a cozy and nice feel to it. It was a little narrow, a little old ( gravel and picnic table) and just did not feel so much like you were camping as you were parking.

I really liked this small park. It was immaculately kept. The sites all had nice picnic table and fire ring. Although the sites were fairly close it just did not see cramped. There are lots of open space around and each site is blacktopped. There are two sets of bathrooms. One is very new and beautiful for a campground. The other one is older but still very clean ( and they are in the process of replacing it with a new bathroom. There is a very nice walk along the river and a marsh walk. There are also large open picnic areas. The sites are a bit tight to get in because of the pine trees. When my husband first saw our site he thought he would never get in but he got in with only a little bit of maneuvering...he is pretty good at this. Other sites were not as tight but this is something to consider. I am sure we will be back to this campground because it is very nice and close to areas we want to go. Next time I will work to make sure we get campsites in the back loop because they are right next to river and quieter and easier to get into.

The campsite is pretty set among pine trees. It is on a quiet road. We had a 30 amp full hook up and it was a pull through. The site was level and long enough for our 33 foot trailer and our crew cab full bed truck. There were some monster rigs that were beside us. The camp's host live right across from the store and are available virtually anytime you need them. They were very helpful and when we had a breakdown 1/4 mile from the camp on leaving, they arranged with someone in the park to come and pull our fifth wheel back and took my husband and dog back while I waited for the wrecker. The restrooms are somewhat old but well kept and very, very clean. The official dog walk is pretty small but there are lots of places nearby that are not campsites that one can walk the dog. We were here in March so the pool and water slide was not open. We did not have any problem getting into or out of our site (twice!). If you get to this KOA from exit 165 you will have to go past a scrap metal junkyard which is right next door. However you cannot see the junkyard from the KOA at all. If you come from exit 160 you will miss this somewhat ugly site.

This was a fantastic experience. We camped right on the lake and could park our rented pontoon boat about 100 ft away. We had a wonderful site overlooking the lake. Although there was rain our site was never muddy. They had this wonderful service where they would come and empty your sewer on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays for $5. The ice cream was great and we could walk to this great little restaurant across the road. The foliage is wonderful with lots of birds and great sunsets. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend. Very kid and pet friendly. Very relaxed and customer oriented. Love it.
