Very quiet, clean park. With Passport America rate it is really a good deal and less than half the price of the Pot Holes State Park almost next door. Manager very nice and so are the residents who are mostly sort of permanent. One even brought us a bowl of cherries. The place is a little hard to find, but once there, terrific. Address is Othello, but it is really closer to Moses Lake.

Although they are current;y building a hotel on the property which created some noise and confusion, the place is really very nice for the money. There are 20 sites East of the casino/hotel which slope quite a bit requiring some blocks under front wheels of a coach. There are 4 sites on the West side of the casino which are more level and quieter and closer to the casino (especially Katie's fast food). These sites (21-24) would be preferable, so when making a reservation, you might want to ask for one of them. There is a sanitary dump and fresh water available. BTW even though the overnight price is $15 + tax, they give you a coupon book which they indicate is worth $20. A very nice spot.

Clean and beautifully cared for by an excellent staff. The new owner has spent a lot of money to make this a really nice place to stay. The staff could not do enough to make the stay comfortable. The summer rate of $15 as a Passport America member really can't be beat in this neck of the woods.

Very well maintained and clean park. Sites are level, but quite close together. We stayed under Passport America with 50 amp service: thus the price. Owners are friendly and accommodating. Power good, water pressure good. It's quiet and pleasant. We would return.

This is a little difficult to find and almost impossible to contact, but if you want full hook-ups, it's pretty good. Once you find the place, you then need to locate the office which is in the store-restaurant-bar. It is the least expensive spot in the Buffalo area with full hook-ups, it's clean and pretty new. It appears that with a bit more effort, this could be very nice. The sites are a little strange as the electric, water and sewer are not very close. The power is good and the water has good pressure. A large motorhome would need several lengths of sewer hose, maybe 40' of electric cord, and of water hose to hook up. You can see the lake and you can hear some road noise, but no train. It is not in Buffalo- about 7 miles into town. We would stay here again.

Just to update the price is now $24, but we used our Golden Age federal pass for the 1/2 price number. Wonderful, clean COE park with nice contact folks. Perhaps the hosts? Sites are very nice with decent power. Some 50 AMP, but mostly 30 amp in the older shaded area. About a mile and a half south is a good view point at a COE Mississippi lock.

It's convenient. The weekly rate saves a little. Pay for 6 nights and get 7. Host were very nice. Not really sure how many sites there are as they are all over the place. Sites back up to a train track which is no big deal. There are a few sites near the grandstand and they have some trees. Hook-ups are a bit strange. Water and 50 amp power is on the left side with sewer drop on right. The noise from fighter jets, trains, and fairgrounds staff equipment takes a little getting used to. The worst part is that the place is filthy. It appears as though no one has ever picked up anything around the sites. We picked up 2 bags of litter. Also, the flies never quit. It's a fairgrounds after all. But we did not see any horses, just flies.

Beautiful campground. Road in through tunnel a bit rough-go slowly. Everything was nice, but checking in was quite the process. 1st a long walk to where you register; then NY tends to charge for almost everything. Folks from out of state pay an extra $5, Saturday or Sunday add $4. Reserve on-line-$9. Just show up- $2.75; view water- $6; 50 amp= $2. Showers are free, but NY regulates the temperature. If you can put up with that stuff, the place is really terrific with mostly very nice level sites in both areas. We would return.

Good power, water and sewer. We were given a pull through site which was OK even if on the main inbound road. Staff was fine. Road requires very slow going. Lots of pot holes. Mostly seasonal and permanents, but at P/A price it was fine. Very quiet. We would return.

Small, but extremely clean and well cared for. We stayed 3 days even though Passport America only gave 2. After that you pay regular price $30 less 10%. Seemed fair. Very quiet and owner makes you feel very much at home here. He told us all the best places to visit and even a really good restaurant in town. We would definitely return.

Another fabulous Corps park. There are full hook up sites as well as electric/ water sites. And with the federal Golden Age Pass, the price is wonderful. The contract employees at the entry station were very accommodating although they did have rather strange hours (12-7). The park is kept up well and it's only about 3 miles into Sullivan with stores and restaurants. We would definitely return to this park.

Some sites really are close to the lake. The place is kept beautifully. There are hosts, but not sure what they do. The office was not open at all during the 2 days that we stayed. You are on your own, but not bad as you may pay with cash, check, or credit card. It's a huge park with an abundance of grass. Ohio parks are members of Passport America during the week, so it is a real bargain for 30 amp power for 1/2 of $26. Ohio advertises that there is a 35 foot limit, but when we called we were told at 38 feet there would be no problem. Since there were plenty of sites open, no problem, but it might be on a busy weekend. We would definitely return to this park.

A reservation fee of over $4 is charged no matter how you access the park. We drove in without reservations and the fee for that 1s $4.51 + the campsite fee = $33 for 30 amp power and NOTHING else. On-line it says 30 foot length limit, but all you have to do is say that. We are 38' and got a site. The litter in site 8 was excessive. And the trimming of the bushes leaves a lot to be desired. It's a beautiful park and the sites seem quite private. The rules go on and on. For example NO adult beverages allowed except in your MOTORHOME. Not even in you TRAILER! Strange. It's quiet and there is lots of growth, but we would not return based on the price and lack of upkeep.

This is a very nice COE park. There are several COE campgrounds in this section of Pomona Lake and all looked very good. Rate reflects a Golden Age discount for .50 amp, water, and sewer. There are only twelve of these sites and quite a number of electric and water sites. Contractors seemed nice and informative. We would definitely stay here again.

A beautiful little park on Hartstine Island in Puget Sound about 14 miles from Shelton. The place is just lovely and taken very good care of. There is no dump station- closest one is not near. There is water available and the public rest rooms are very nice. Showers take quarters- 50¢ for 3 minutes. This is not real close to anything, but if you are a boater or want to use your kayak this is a wonderful spot.

Mostly level sites for smaller units. There are only five 50 amp sites. Sites are gravel. There is a new shower house. Some sites are 1st come, 1st served and some can be reserved on line. COE contract folks very nice and helpful. Office hours are strange at entrance station- 7-8 AM and 5-10 PM. New shower building in the last year. Loop A has electric and water hook-ups. 50 amp sites are $19, 30 amp are $18. Card holders (seniors and disabled) get 50% discount. Well cared for with big trees and grass on Milford Lake, the largest lake in Kansas. We would return here.

Another nice COE park on the grand arm of the Truman Reservoir. The sites are NOT directly on the lake, but there is plenty of shade and grass. It's about 1 mile off the MO 13 highway between Branson and Kansas City. No water at sites, but faucets scattered about. Good dump either coming in or going out. There are also 3 group shelters. The fee paid was 1/2 due to Golden Age Passport.

There are 2 campgrounds in the park-Yocona Ridge has 35 reservable sites (Reserve America) and Jones Creek has 48 1st come 1st served sites. *There are 13 cabins near Yocono Ridge, so only 83 total campsites. The road going into the Jones Creek is gravel and bad. The pool is not in operation. The place is beautiful but showing it's age and lack of help. The road in to Yocono Ridge is OK but narrow and larger rigs will find a bit of difficulty, but sites can accommodate 40 footers. Note that SENIORS get a $20 site for $14, but you must ask for it or reserve properly. Verizon cell service works well.

This is an example of why the Corps of Engineers is the absolute best. This place has it all even washer/dryers. Concrete parking pads, super water pressure, 50 amp power, several dump stations laid out intelligently, level sites, beautiful huge lake, etc., etc. Impressive. About the only negative would be the slow check in process and the reservation system which only allows reserving 4 or more days in advance-goofy. Rate reflects Golden Age pass.

They advertise 2000 feet of Suwannee River frontage, but you must walk on a boardwalk close to 1/2 mile to even see the river. The owners seem quite nice and even bring you to your campsite. There are a lot of rules (16 written). They show a $15 rate for P/A members, but by the time you add sewer and fairly mandatory 50 amp power it is $19 plus tax. If you don't buy sewer hook up, you can dump for $2. The campground is very quiet; access by about a mile of dirt road.

A very nice county park. Employees work to keep it attractive. Sites are every which way, but there is a degree of privacy even when the place is brimming with rigs. Big rigs may find navigating difficult due to lots of trees close to the roads. Pool is extremely clean. There is a rooster next door who bellows more than just mornings. We stayed as a P/A member for 3 nights and as full price for 2 weekend nights. The store in the office has prices that will astound you. I bought bulbs for $4 that cost $6 everywhere else. It is nice to be treated so well.

A very pretty place in the country. $12 is the Passport America rate and there is no tax added which is quite nice. No planes, trains or highway traffic either which makes for a very restful spot. You drive in, pick a spot and staff will come to you with the paperwork. Very nice for a change.

Nightly rate is $15.50 plus electric for SKP members which we are. This park has about everything one could want. The sites are LEVEL and gravel. Electric is 50/30/20 amp and water and sewer are located within easy reach. And the employees are very pleasant.

We arrived early and there was no one here to pay or question, so we just took a vacant site- all are back in concrete with 50/30 AMP, water, sewer, and cable TV. When the manager arrived she came to the site and was very nice. Even with the higher temps of 80°, the breeze off the lake makes for comfortable camping. The TALL bridge to get to Pleasure Island from Pt Arthur was under repair so there was a bit of a hold-up getting here. No discounts- no credit cards, but cash or check.

Basic stopover with only 12 sites. Passport America rate was $12 plus a little tax. Folks very nice at motel check in. Truck stop restaurant quite adequate and fairly priced. Verizon phone worked fine, but Verizon Internet card slower than slow at this location. There was only one other camper there.

This place is about all one would want. There were only a couple of campers there, so we were able to be pretty far away from the I-10 and it was nice and quiet. There is a big truck lot next door, but it was not much of a bother. No paperwork or problems, just pay your $10 and show your Passport America card and find a spot. There were people working to keep the place tidy. Very impressive- sure would like to see more campers, but it is out in the middle of nowhere. Good electric.

This is a basic overnight spot. Management is pleasant. There are a number of "permanents" with some pretty noisy dogs. Also the odor from the neighboring dairies can be quite oppressive. We paid an extra dollar for 50 amp to be able to run the A/C. And we were using Passport America.

Note the price has changed to $30 per night, but if one comments on how much it went up, they give a Good Sam discount. So, we actually paid $27. Folks are very nice. Check in procedure is way more complicated than necessary and the amount of paper they give you is excessive. There are 2 pages of rules, but presumably that's what keeps it nice.
