Expensive, but a wonderfull campground. The negatives: The pet loop is quite narrow, and appears to be designed for tent campers of years ago. This makes for a very tight approach to your site. The sites are not easy to back into. Not only are the not angled enough for easy entry, but large trees across from your site will interfere with your backing in. Other than that this is an excellent park at the Disney resort. Nice pools, campground entertainment at night, store with plenty to choose from, playgrounds, restaurant and bar, transportation around the campground and to the theme parks, the list goes on. In spite of the tight narrow access loops, this is a wonderfull park.

A somewhat tired park that served well for our stop on the way through. Friendly and helpfull staff, but nothing special about the sites. Close sites, but room for slide outs and the pull throughs were level.

It's hard to say negative things about this park, because the staff is so helpfull and friendly. However, big riggers should be aware that this is, in spite of KOA's claim, NOT big rig friendly. The exit transition is so steep that you clearly risk bottoming out or hitting your 5th wheel on your truck sides. Negotiating the campground turns to the pull through sites is very tight. None of the pull throughs we saw were level. Aside from those negatives, this is a nice woodsy quiet campground. It is simply not big rig friendly.

The staff was friendly at this KOA, but unfortunately the campground is quite dated. The playground had totally rusted parts that made it dangerous and useless. The pool is a bit larger than some bathtubs. The bathrooms are dated back some 40+ years, and they were not clean early in the morning before use. The sites are gravel with weeds between them, and there is a warning about aligators attacking your dog at the pond. The staff was quite friendly and nice, but I still would not stay in this park again. KOA needs to review its parks.

The staff was very friendly, but beyond that there are many many problems with this old tired park. First, it is miles off the highway reached by a winding twisting road that is not easy to navigate by big rigs. WARNING some of the sites assigned to 5th wheels are not navigable. The "BigRig Pull Through" we were assigned to would have damaged our camper had we not been carefull. The steep entry would have caused the truck sides to hit any 5th wheel. We had to back up, go around, and back into our "pull through" site. Wi Fi is useless even close to the main building. Connections at site are often at the wrong end of the site. Asked for 50 amp, site had 30 amp. Low trees all over will hit your camper. Although the entry is straight in an easy, the very steep exit with twisting s curves and steep transitions could cause your truck bed side rails to hit your 5th wheel. This is a tired old park that is not at all big rig friendly. The staff was friendly, but it just doesn't make up for this dated park.

While many KOA parks are giving KOA's a bad name, this is one of the best KOA parks. This one is truly a big rig friendly park with no low overhanging trees, easy access, and easy level, pull through sites. Nice small restaurant on site as well as a very nice pool, amusements, playground, entertainment, and more. Not that far off the interstate for an overnight stop. Clean, well maintained, and excellent staff.

I'm really sorry to have to give this campground a lower rating, but I feel the other reviewers are just not giving enough weight to the constant and overwhelming nearby interstate highway noise. The campground is nice, the owners and staff are friendly, but be prepared for loud constant roaring truck traffic right adjacent to the campground all night long. Sorry, but you should know this before you decide to stay. If you are used to road noise, great, but if you aren't, well, be prepared.

Friendly staff, nice pond, indoor pool and facilities, nice dog walk areas, and basically a pleasant KOA to stay at in the Finger Lakes/Corning area. Sites available for big rig pull throughs to tents nestled at the edge of the trees. We will be back again, because we visit the Finger Lakes Wine Country every year. Go to Suzannes Restaurant on the East side of the lake for the finest food in the area at a husband and wife run business.

We gave this pleasant campground a 10 out of 10 due to its attractive setting with a pond, and its very friendly staff. We felt very welcome, and the staff organized several social events including a nice pancake breakfast. We would definitely stay here again.

Attractive campground on the shore of Missouri River within walking distance to a restaurant, pool, and other indoor facilities of the adjacent hotel for your use. The only real drawback noted was that some of the sites along the river are not very level at all.

Frankly, this campground was not as good as we had expected from the other reviews. Some of the sites are horribly unlevel. I'm not sure how to prevent this, because we were assigned one while the campground was half empty and we had especially asked for a very level site. They let us move, but what if the campground were full? Be sure to ask if you need to be near a bathroom, because some sections are way too far away to use bath houses. This was not a problem for us. THE ADVERTISED WIFI IS BASICALLY FALSE ADVERTISING. Do not count on wifi. I'm not talking about being close enough for a good signal, because we had one. I'm talking about the fact that their satellite wifi is much much worse than dialup. Even basic e-mail was unacceptable.

A very well kept maintained KOA we used on our way east. Some special sites included a paved patio with umbrella table etc. Typical KOA type campground with nice facilities, but otherwise rows of campsites. No real complaints, and a good place to stop while passing through.

This is the most under rated RV campground in Yellowstone. We arrived expecting the "paved parking lot", and much to our pleasant surprise we instead found relatively easy to back into angled paved sites with enough side room to park our truck as well. There is some grass and small trees between sites, but due to wildlife, no tables or firepits. The loops are separated by bands of woods. If you have an rv with hookups, then do yourself a favor and stay at Fishing Bridge. Yellowstone is not a place to sit and stay in the campground. You'll spend most of the day elsewhere in the park, so come back to Fishing Bridge to enjoy full facilities. The other no facility campgrounds are just not that good enough to do without hookups. Remember, this advice is from campers in a small Truck Camper, and not a large class A with a big screen TV. Fishing Bridge is ok. The only real complaint is that the Government thinks water runs up hill at the sewage connections.

I know others love this park, but frankly it is over rated for Yellowstone. The site we were assigned to was basically a wide bend along one of the park loop roads. We edged as close as we could to a nearby tree just off the pavement, and were afraid to put the slide out for fear of it being hit by passing traffic. Please take note that we were in just a truck camper, and not a large RV. Yet we were assigned a totally unacceptable site, even for such a small RV. We saw numerous larger campers assigned to unacceptable sites for their size. Many sites here are over rated for anything beyond a tent site. Those who rated this park higher, probably were assigned to one of the more acceptable sites. If you can use hookups, then you are far better off at Fishing Bridge. Otherwise, good luck on being assigned a reasonable site. Luckily, we only stayed one night, and then had reservations for a week at Fishing Bridge.

A very well kept and maintained park. The managers were especially nice and caring. I would give them "The Managers of the Year Award" for campgrounds. They went out of the way to make sure we were satisfied, and were enjoying our stay. The only drawbacks to this park are the lack of a swimming pool and some other amenities. Lakeside swimming is available across the street, but limited.

A nice but typical KOA we used on the way out west. The campground sits in a relatively quiet area well away from the interstate. All the sites we saw were level and reasonably large for a KOA. The owner, and staff were pleasant, and the park appeared clean and well maintained. The only minor complaint was that the small pool was ice cold, especially for September 1st. Wifi did not work at the edges of the park, but a short walk to a vacant table at another site provided some connection.

This is a special find for travellers passing through or on the way to Spearfish Canyon. A very attractive campground in a quiet setting with a small river/stream running through it. Clean, well kept and attractive. The only drawback are that some of the sites are rather hard to back in to for larger rigs. However, every site we saw was almost perfectly level.

Typical KOA on a small pond type lake. Nothing special, but all facilities advertised worked. Stayed here on the way out West.

Very attractive park near attractive dunes on the lake. It's hard to fault anything with this park, except the lack of full hookups. Sites are large and attractive. Nice hiking trails through the dunes and along the beach. Fee includes a $10 non resident entry fee into the park

Pleasant staff and clean well maintained park. No real complaints, except the proximity to the interstate with related road noise. The park is across the street from Lake Erie.

This is a nice park with shade trees, a nice pool, and a very pleasant staff. The staff is very helpful, and in fact when a large storm blew in they ran around putting down awnings on campers. Most of the sites are level, and you can ask for a concrete pad site, but some of the sites are not very level at all. Make sure you insist on a level site if you need one. We asked twice, and although we were assured it was a level site, it was very unlevel side to side. A ways out of Williamsburg, but not too far to keep you from staying here. Trains can be heard from time to time in the distance, but not a major problem. We would stay here again.

Like the some of the others reported, this is an ok campground with a very nice staff. The campground lacks a pool, which is nice in the hot summer, but is located in a quiet country setting away from the main highways. However, this also means that getting there on some winding back roads is not as easy as just pulling into a campground along Route 30 etc. Some sites are not very level, but others are level enough. Very pleasant staff.

Most over rated park I ever stayed at. Entry sign behind desk says it all, "NO REFUNDS". Ask yourself why? The great ratings for this park are telling you that there is a lot to do for the kids. Other than that, it is a rip off. Crowded, busy, noisy, near a noisy highway, impersonal staff. This is a facilities park. They have all the facilities to meet the star requirements for publications, but nothing in the way of a true campground. "NO REFUNDS" means they have something to hide and worry about.

You have been warned!! Sorry to report, but this is a classic bait and switch park. By that I mean, that they book you into a totally improper and unlevel site that simply will not accommodate your rig, and then offer to put you in a lesser site that you would never have booked in the first place. This gets you in the door, and then books you in a site at their campground that you would never have accepted in the first place. Like us, camper after camper came in, then was placed in a lesser site. Our site was horribly unlevel, and we had to accept a level site with no sewer. Everyone around us was in the same predicament. The sites in the woods are horribly unlevel. There is a parking lot area in front of the office, if you like KOA parking lots, that was level, but anything else with services was horribly unlevel. The staff is pleasant, but they must be awfully tired of this bait and switch tactic. You have been Warned! KOA should know better. This campground is ok for tents.

This an excellent well maintained full facility campground set back from the highway. We can't say enough good things about this relatively new park. Full facilities, along with an excellent and very helpful staff. This is a friendly park. Large perfectly level sites. We would certainly stay here again.

While the staff was friendly, this appears to be an old outdated park at best. Don't forget to tack on the Stone Mountain Park entry fee, that the campground will not tell you about. Yes, you must pay the fee to reach the park. Unless you are lucky, be prepared for a very extremely unlevel site at best. In fact, you may have to bring lots of wood blocks to stack your camper up on. The locals have long since reserved the level sites. Sites are paved, but the pavement has long since broken up into rubble. The sites are not particularly private. The only thing good about this campground is being in the Stone Mountain Recreation area. We would never stay here again.

We stayed here one night while passing through the area on the way home. There is a good bass fishing pond if you like fishing. The sites were level, but many are located in an open field. The managers were very helpful and friendly.

In spite of the fact that this campground lacks hookups, this in a very special place to stay along Skyline Drive. Take a walk behind the shower building along the short trail to the lodge for an excellent dinner overlooking the Shenandoah Valley. Nature trails, trails to a waterfall, large sites, and clean facilities. This is a special place.

We agree with the other comments that this is a hidden gem of a campground. Very enjoyable experience, nice large sites, well maintained, and clean. We would stay here again for sure.

If you're visiting Disney,then this should be your number one choice. I know the nightly charge sounds high, but if you factor in the daily RV parking charge you would have to pay (free parking is available if you stay here) then the charge drops considerably. This wonderful park includes just about everything, and everthing is clean and well maintained. Take advantage of the 10 day package for Disney, because it is only about $40 more for the entire 10 day park pass over a 5 day. An absolutely excellent park.

This is a primitive facility campground without electric hookups, but does have water and sewer. We found the campground managers to be very helpfull and friendly. The sites are relatively private and large. There is a recreation lake, but this is not a campground loaded with facilities for children. This is a true campground instead of an RV park. We would stay here again.

Very nice park on a large lake with a swimming beach, boat launch, and bicycling. Most of the sites are large enough for the largest of RV's, and most are relatively level. However, some sites will not accommodate large RV's, and some of the sites on the lower portion of loop 5 are especially unlevel. The staff is friendly, and pets are welcome. Free hot showers, and clean restrooms. This is an old military base converted to a campgroung, and as a result it is a joy to explore on a bike. Enjoy the military museum in the park. This is wine country. Check out the wine tastings at many of the nearby wineries.

This Corp of Engineers campground is one of the finest most enjoyable parks we've stayed at. The sites are large, have paved roads, paved parking pads, blocked out gravel pads for tables, firepit, and extra tent site at every RC site we saw. There is also a short hike in tent site. Many sites are in view of the lake, there is a boat launch, and there is a nice beach for swimming. This place even has a fully equiped fish cleaning station. The staff is extremely friendly, and pets are welcome at this park. Unless you are looking for more of the amusements offered for children at some private campgrounds, this park can't be beat. We stayed in a truck camper.

This is a very nice State park on a lake with good access roads. Most of the sites are quite private. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the park is quite pleasant. The only negative, except the park lacks full services, was the pet restrictions. Pets are restricted to one loop area only, and some of the other campers are on the lookout for the slightest infraction. One semi-permanent camper near the rest room will register a complaint if your dog puts one foot off of the pavement. This is not a pet friendly place. We stayed in a truck camper.

While we are aware that most people rate this campground very highly, we also wanted to point out that it is not for everyone. This campground, although clean and providing many services, has far too busy an atmosphere for those looking for a quiet campground. Additionally, you will find it is near a busy road with road noise. Coming from a country home in Vermont, we found this annoying.
