We are TT members and the price reflects this. Yes, there is a 1 1/2 mile 2 lane road into the park but most people leave in the morning and arrive in the afternoon so we did not see a problem. I think there might be one in the summer when the place gets busier than in February. The campground is terraced and the sites are mostly level but on dirt and gravel. We had trouble finding a site with good electrical connections but finally did and settled in. There are nice trails around the park to take. The ranch house is historic and fun to visit. We enjoyed the sundaes (who wouldn't) and there were all sorts of other meals served. There was a small convenience store. We used this campground to explore the area of Solvang, Santa Barbara, Kanpp Castle, and the roads around the area. We would definitely stay there again.

This campground is not a destination in itself, but we used it as a central location to explore Eureka, Ferndale, the Humboldt Redwoods State Park, and Prairie Creek Redwoods SP. The hook-ups are good, the sites are mostly level, cable is included (though we found a better picture with regular TV), and the sites have grass between them. They have planted trees which will shade future RV'ers. There are a few rule but they only help keep the campground maintained and make it nice for all.

This campground is centrally located to visit and explore the Sacramento area. It is not a destination in itself. We were in the back area and our space was 60' long. The hookups were good, the spot was mostly level. The sites are rock and you can put out a mat. The campground is right on the river biking trail but there is a dike if you want to walk along it. There were no trees or bushes. We would definitely stay again.

When we arrived we tried to find an electrical receptacle that we could use and it was a bit of a trial. Too many are out of commission and we finally ended up in their 50-amp section just because we didn't want to futz around. This is a good base to explore the area. We went to Monterey, Santa Cruz, and over to Pinnacles NP (what a special place.) This campground needs a lot of work to make it look nice. We did see a crew cleaning up the leaves and fallen branches one of the days we were there. Keep up the good work. On the other hand, the trees were huge, the spaces are large, and there was a neat trail to walk outside the camping area itself. We would definitely camp there again.

Very nice state park and we will definitely camp here again. The sides are large and most have a view of the lake though only a few are actually on the lake. Some sites have a ramada but all have a large picnic table. Most sites have a tree on them. The site was fairly level. The hookups were easy and the 50 amp electricity worked well. The bathrooms and showers were clean but I was going to ding the maintenance crew when it looked as if the toilet paper might run out on a Saturday night on President's Day weekend. Then, between 6 pm and 8pm the showers and bathroom were cleaned and resupplied. Wow.

We like this park. It is close to Sedona and we hike the trails there. The park is clean and neat and well-maintained. There is a picnic table with each site, the site we had was level and was a long pull-through. There are 2 clubhouses since the park is so big and here is where the Wi-Fi is. We especially like the trails around the park, several go from section to section of the park while others climb some of the hills around the campground. Nice campground and we've been here before and will return.

We enjoyed this smaller more intimate park. We had a level, pull-through site with a grassy area and trees overhead. The park was clean and well-maintained. The owners worked hard and it shows. There is a challenging mini-golf course. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a small city park on the north end of town that can accommodate large rigs. The sites were not particularly well-marked and were difficult to level in. There was some train noise, but certainly didn't bother my sleeping. We stopped here to see the Pony Express building and would definitely stay here again.

Very nice park with very accommodating owners. We had problems with out cooling system in our RV, so after checking in, we headed over to the Freightliner Service area - where we stayed until the next morning. The owners let us extend our stay by one day at no charge. The grounds are well maintained, the sites are level, the Wi-Fi is good, there is a small store for supplies. They can pump propane. If you stay 6 nights, they will give you the 7th. The price above is based on that. We would definitely camp here again.

This campground is at the Blue Ox factory. Interestingly, all spots are pull-in, not back-in to make it easier to work on your tow-bar. Very nice campground, well maintained, concrete pads, nice plantings. However, as others have said, this is not a destination campground, it is for factory tours or tow-bar problems.

This campground would be a marvelous campground were it not so close to the interstate. The noise was constant and made it difficult to talk with someone outside. However, it is close to everything: shopping, Falls Park, and museums. Other than that, it was a clean, neat, well-maintained campground. The laundries were very clean as were the showers and bathrooms. Our asphalt pad was new and level, the hook-ups were convenient and cable was provided. We would return but would bring ear plugs next time.

This is a beautiful park and well maintained. As others have said, it has large grassy sites, a beautiful catch-and-release pond with a paddle boat and a cool bridge and a walking trail around it. There are 2 laundries, an exercise room and a large meeting hall. Half of the sites are pull-through and half are back-in. About 95% of the people who stay here are full-timers, some are snowbirds who return to Iowa in the summer while the other half work in the area, mostly at Prairie Meadows. You must make a reservation early since most return year after year. We were lucky to get in and have already made our reservation for next year. The rate above is based upon a most reasonable monthly rate of $425.

I really like this campground and have stayed here several times in the past and look forward to staying here again. The sites are level and come with a palm tree or two and a picnic table. The sun through the palm tress is stunning, and, yes, there are lots of palm trees - and they make parking into either an obstacle or a challenge. We have only a 35' rig, and thus, they are challenges. There is a pool, pickle ball courts and pool tables. It is more a campground than an exclusive resort, and that is part of its charm. The other part is being in Palm Springs where there is an abundance of hiking trails which is what we look for when we come. We have Verizon cell phones and hotspot and have no trouble with either.

This is a typical Thousand Trails campground (more a campground than a resort), and we enjoyed it. There is grass and trees, and the sites are large, level, and come with a picnic table. If you like to walk, the park is more than a mile end to end and, if you like to hike, you can hike up to Mt. Otay in one direction or up the hills in the other. We especially enjoyed the omelets in the restaurant on Saturday, and there is a little convenience store also. We started in the north section with only water and electric but were able to move to the south section with full hook-ups after only one night. The rangers are very helpful. Cell phone service and wi-fi are difficult, but we went into the town several times and got service there. Will definitely be back - we saw more mountains we'd like to climb.

This reflects the 3 1/2 month pre-season rate of $700. We really enjoyed this park: it was clean, well-managed and maintained, had every activity you could imagine (even pre-season), had entertainment about 3 times in the main patio, had special areas for those with pets, had weekly meetings with donuts and coffee, had 3 pools, new tennis courts, 3 shuffleboard areas, pickleball courts, miniature golf, dances, holiday dinners and many other activities. We will definitely return next year.

This was a pretty basic campground. Our site in the middle of the middle row was level, and we didn't even put our our levelers. I agree with the previous reviews about how to get into the campground from the Best Western. And, yes, there is a hot breakfast provided by the motel. We were able to winterize here before we headed north back to Iowa. We took 81 north out of El Reno to Enid and then east to Interstate 35 to avoid the traffic in Oklahoma City. Nice alternative.

Very nice park and convenient to the highway though not too close to be noisy. There are discounts for Escapees and others, but an extra $4.00 for 50 amps. Very large level sites, very clean, a small convenience and gift store. Pool was closed by this time of the year. Would definitely stay here again.

Rustic park with few amenities. Nice level site and long enough to keep our Jeep hooked up over night. Very nice owners and, when my husband was working on our antenna, one of the owners ran out to see if he could help. Trees have been planted and are growing but there are some shady sites in the park also. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.

A good place to spend the night along rte 40 since it is convenient to the highway and to a Love's at the same exit. It is obviously a popular campground for travelers and the couple next to us have been stopping here for 10 years. There are trains running often by the park, but we were at the other end and they never bothered our sleeping. Half of the people in the park are contract workers. The sites are level gravel and easy to get into. The campground is very convenient for Malpais and El Morro National Monuments and also to the Acoma pueblo and historical site. Our price reflects a weekly rate. We would definitely stay here again.

A very nice county park. We have stayed here and will stay again. The sites were nicely sized and fairly level, most were shaded and each had a fire pit and a picnic table. There are lots of activities available, hiking around the lake, picniking, boating, fishing and there is a golf course on one side of the campground. Weekends during the summer are busy and sometimes late on Sunday, the bathrooms have a bit of sand in them. A larger rig might have a bit of trouble maneuvering but our 35' motorhome had no trouble at all. For all the people here on a weekend, it was very quiet in the evenings.

Nice campground on the east side of Las Vegas. It is close to several casinos and within walking distance of Walmart. The sites on the back wall, where we were, are very tight and might be a bit difficult to get into depending upon the size of your rig. They also slope to the wall so you will need to level. Everything is clean and the recent refurbishing of the clubhouse is very nice. There is a small store where you can buy RV supplies, convenience items and food. Friendly staff and neighbors. We walked outside the campground and always felt safe. We will definitely come back.

As others have said, there is no greenery and there is very little space between RV's. The sites are mostly level and, again, as others have mentioned, the ocean sites are closed off. The staff is very nice and very accommodating and the facilities are very clean. This is not a resort campground and some spots seem a bit run down but what it has going for it is its proximity to SF (12 miles by car and $6.50 by Bart) and only 2 blocks from the Safeway for shopping. There are also other stores and services within walking distance. There is also a nice walking trail which goes both North and South from the campground. You will have to remember that this is SF and it might be a bit windy, foggy and damp and you will definitely get ocean spray on your vehicle. We enjoyed the campground and will definitely go back when we want to visit SF.

This park could use some updating and, as others have mentioned, the electricity is a problem. You need to test the electricity before you hookup. We stayed in section N; there are many sites which are owned, look very nice and landscaped and these are on the outside of the area. The sites are long, level, mostly pull-through and there is a lot of grass and trees between sites. We enjoyed walking around the park which is quite large and there are some trails in the hills surrounding the park. Shopping is a bit of a drive. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice smaller park, but within walking distance of the ocean. The price reflects a $200 weekly price. The sites are ample, come with a picnic table and most are level though some present a bit of a challenge. Shopping is within a few miles and we enjoyed the walk to the north along the sand dune path and through town to the Pismo Beach Pier. There is a golf course close by and a state park also. We would definitely stay here again.

We stopped for one night and hooked up to electricity only. The sites were fairly level and had grass between each and a light on each electric pole. The campground was clean and the owner was very accommodating. The view of the hills and rocks is beautiful. Since Eureka is experiencing an economic boom, most of the sites were taken by long term residents. We would definitely stay here again.

We were here for 3 months, Oct - Dec, and received their special rate of $750. We really enjoyed this campground. The facilities are is very good shape, clean and well-landscaped and well-cared for. Pride of ownership showed through. The people who lived her are very nice and friendly. Most of the units are park models but there are many people who travel in their RV's who winter here also. Most of the RV'ers are return visitors. There is a golf course, tennis courts, pickle ball courts, several pools, 8 pool tables and a myriad of other activities. We especially liked the close. The lots were spacious and consisted of pea stone. We would definitely return.

We are members of Thousand Trails so the price reflects this membership. We have always enjoyed camping here and will continue to make this a stop on our winter travels. The campground is typical Thousand Trails: lots of activities, nice facilities (is there anything prettier than the rows of palms throughout the campground?), close to everything and full of friendly people. The campsites are a bit close, but that is not a problem. The campsites are mostly level, have a picnic table, and you can choose whether you wish back-in or pull-through. Because it is a big campground, you can get your daily walk in just by walking through the streets.

We have enjoyed this campground for 2 years and will definitely come back. The facilities were cleaned daily and the maintenance workers were always out working. The sites, a mixture of asphalt and gravel, are level and have a fire pit and a table. Wi-fi is provided, and there is a new exercise/equipment room. We especially liked the registration personnel who were extremely accommodating. For example: we wanted to leave early in the morning and had a back-in site. We asked if we could move to a pull-through for the night and were given one at no extra charge. Our price reflects the monthly rate for seniors during the winter. This campground is extremely conveniently located for touring San Diego and neighboring areas. Shopping is also close by.

We've always enjoyed this park. It is clean, quiet, the sites are large and grassy with a picnic table provided. Since the hook-ups are in the middle for 2 sites, you can be fairly close to your neighbor on the drivers side. There is a pool, pickle ball courts, a pool table, a table tennis table, a volleyball court, etc. There are also several nature trails for hiking which are nicely laid out. Most sites are fairly level but I will agree with the others that the interior roads are narrow. We have camped here in the past and will definitely camp here again.

This is a very nice National Park campground. The campground is free, but I put $1 since it will not allow $0. The cottonwood trees are beautiful and cover the park. There is a picnic table and a fire pit at each site. The bathrooms are clean but there is no shower. Obviously the campground is close to the park and the rim drives. There is also convenient shopping. The sites are fairly level and vary in size. We had no trouble finding one for our 35' motorhome. The limit is 40' but we think there were some that were longer.

This is one of the few campgrounds in Flagstaff and is on the east side of town. There are mostly permanent residents here, but there are plenty of spots for travelers. We are in a spot vacated by someone who had lived here for 6 months and we have flowers and a nice bench at our site. There is a picnic table at each spot, but no grill. The park is very shady. There are no showers and bathrooms. There is free Wi-Fi. We especially enjoyed the trails out of the park into the forest land behind it. You can walk out and immediately be in a piney woods forest. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a basic campground. Full hook-ups, but not much else. The price I've listed reflects the Passport America discount. I do not think there are bathrooms and showers. The park is centrally located for visiting Holbrook (don't miss the Museum and the teepee motel) and the Petrified Forest. The owners are extremely nice and helpful. The campground is close to the highway, but the sound did not bother us at all. We would definitely stay here again.

This park is difficult to find since it is in back of a small restaurant/convenience store and the campground sign blew down a few weeks ago. The sites are level, and the owners are trying to grow trees for each site. $26 does seem a bit much for this campground but the nearest competition is $45+. There is a road down to the river here and the red cliffs behind the campground on the other side of the river are beautiful in the sunset. The park is centrally located for visiting the Natural Bridges, Monument Valley, Goosenecks, the Valley of the Gods road and taking the Moki Dugway. We would definitely stay here again.

Nice small busy park. The price reflects the 'stay 3 nights for $60 and get the 4th night free' discount. The sites were fairly level. There was a fire pit, grill and table at each site. "Pop" gives you all the local information with addresses when you check in. The park is centrally located for visits to Chaco Culture National Historic Park,. hiking in the Bisti, Aztec Ruins NHS and Salmon Ruins. It is also convenient to shopping. There is a Dunkin Donuts in town also. We would definitely stay here again.

The sites were level. There were trees for shade at each site. A picnic table and fire pit were at each site. There were a few permanent RV's. but most were like us - just there for a few nights. It is centrally located for visiting the local sites: Mesa Verde, Lowry Pueblo, Hovenweep. Shopping was convenient. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a nice National Park campground. It is treed, the sites are fairly private, the bathrooms are clean, a fire pit and a table are at each site. We have a 35' motorhome and there are only a few sites which will accommodate this size. Leveling is a bit of a problem. There are trails right from the campground to the dunes and to the Visitor Center though both are about 1 1/2 miles one way. We really liked this park and will definitely stop again.

We've stayed here before and will stay again. The price is $0 for the first night and $10 for the second. We always stay 2 nights so the price reflects the $10 for two nights. I did not use the shower and can not remember if there is one. The bathrooms are clean. This is a pretty basic park with no frills - but great for the price. The sites are parallel, level and have electric hook-ups. There is a dump and fresh water available. We recommend that you park on the E side of the trees so that you'll be shaded in the afternoon sun. Beautiful library in town, we biked around the town one day.

We stayed here one night on a Passport America rate to tour the Amanas. The sites were level, large, and had a picnic table. There is a variety of hook-ups from a tenting area to partial hook-ups to full hook-ups. It is good for rallies since there are a number of large buildings for meetings, etc. We had trouble getting wi-fi, even though what we thought was the antenna was 15' from our front door. There is a lot of grass between every site and all around, however, there is a white rocky gravel for the roadways. This makes the whole campground dusty, whenever anyone travels more than 5 mph through the area. Watering this down would go a long way to alleviate this. We would definitely stay here again.

Very nice state park and, judging by the number of others here, they agree. Most sites are large and many are very secluded, surrounded by bushes and trees and grasses. Some need leveling help. Nice grassy sites with a picnic table and a fire pit with grate on each campsite. There are many activities available such as: kayaking, biking, fishing, boating, paddle-boating, etc. You can rent kayaks, bikes, paddle boats, boats, etc. They have a camp store which has things you might need but forgot like bug spray, but also firewood and food items. A restaurant is near the boat launching area with a Fish Fry on Friday nights. It also serves sandwiches, salads and ice cream.

We stopped here on our way back home because we wanted to see the National Monument (Brown vs the Board of Education) and the Historical Museum. We spent only 2 nights here and our day was full. Next time we will spend more time in this very delightful park. It is everything the previous posters have said: a wealth of things to do, a beautiful walking trail and lake, clean facilities, level sites with a picnic table, shelters, golf, disc golf, etc. Sunset over the lake is stunning and you can begin your day with a short walk along the trail which is right there. The sites lack a sewer but across the street is a clean wide dump station. It is close to the highway so is a nice on/off drive. I wish more towns would have such facilities.

This park is a nice municipal park for $15.00 per night for full hook-ups. It is not a destination park but is extremely convenient to Interstate 35. The sites are long but, on the other hand, the hook-ups are at the end of the site and perfect for a trailer or a 5th wheel. We have a motorhome and, if we wanted to stay hooked-up to our Jeep, we could not hook-up to the sewer. However, we just swung around in the morning and dumped. Simple. We did not try the bathrooms and do not know if there are showers. The park is next to the baseball field and it was a real treat to watch the Varsity High School game. A real touch of Americana. However, the umps, the players and some of the fans park 3 to a campsite and, sometimes on game Friday nights, there are no campsites available. The park is close to the Braum's Ice Cream - what could be better? We walked through park of the town in the evening eating our ice cream and enjoyed the ambiance.

The previous reviews have covered the campground very well. It is a very nice campground with exercise room, pool, hot tub, barbeque area, daily trash pick-up, small store, nice library, very clean facilities and nice long pull-through sites for those staying a week or less. There are back-in sites for those staying monthly, and in one section of the park are the people living here permanently. All of the park is very clean and neat. Should you want to cook in the barbeque area, you can use the gas grill there. Just clean up after you are done. A nice touch. We found this campground very convenient for touring Austin. The capital, the Bob Bullock History Museum and the LBJ Library are all within 8 miles. REI, Whole Foods and the Lady Bird Lake are within 9 miles. We would definitely stay here again.

This is a nice campground to stay in on the long, long trip across western Texas. There are no amenities but we were happy with it. Our rate reflects our Passport America membership. The sites are huge but built more for a 5th wheel with the sewer very much towards the back of the site. A motorhome with a toad would not fit unless it had a very, very long sewer hose. We used the sewer, unhooked it and then pulled forward into the spot. We noticed that the motorhome next to us had done the same thing. Someone had taken great care to develop and maintain some cactus garden islands between each site to add beauty to what would otherwise be a gravel campground. We would stay here again even without the PA rate. I did not see any restrooms or showers.

I really liked this campground - but then I am partial to water and especially the ocean. This campground is right on Mission Bay and the views are marvelous. There are some cons: the sites were close together and, because of the hook-ups, our front window looked out onto the rear window of the camper in front of us. We could almost shake hands with the person on our right when our slides were out. There are different grades of sites and ours, the cheapest, had gravel for half of it. Now the pros: the staff was very friendly, the restrooms, the beach, the common areas were always clean. We saw them clean up and rake each campsite prior to a new camper's arrival. The jetty area was delightful. The pools and spa were always clean and neat. There is a store with camping, RV, food and souvenirs. There is a small restaurant and they even have hard ice cream. Would we return? We've already made our reservation for next year. We liked it that much.

Very nice Thousand Trails campground. Very clean and well maintained. The sites are long and ours was a pull-through. Verizon signal worked well for both our phones and modem. Picnic table with each site. They have just redone the pool area but, in October, we did not use the pool. Has two very large commons rooms, a store with RV parts and supplies, and a small supply of convenience food items are available. Several short trails make it easy to walk around. The road into the campground is long and twisty and the speed limit is 5 mph. We enjoyed this (our first Thousand Trails campground) and will return. The price reflects the Thousand Trails price.

We really enjoyed this park. The people were friendly, the place was sparkling clean and it was close to the hiking areas in Tucson. The sites are level, very large and are on large enough rocks that no dust blows around. Though this park is largely park models, there is a large RV section at the back. Security is tight with someone at the front gate 24-7. There is a large pool and two hot tub pools. There is a large central office with a library, kitchen, lounge, kitchen, large dining area and pool room. It is very nicely landscaped and maintained. Activities are offered. We'd definitely come back.

We enjoyed this National Park campground and were actually here 10 nights. Because this is a first come, first served, we stayed in Ruby's for one night and were at the gate at 8:00 the next morning to get a campsite in this campground. Thus we were able to choose the one we wanted. We have a 35' rig and wanted a larger level site, which we were able to get. Many of the sites are very difficult to level on and we watched people struggle to get level. Otherwise this was a great site: convenient to the Visitor Center, the trails, the Canyon, the dump and the stores, etc. It is also surrounded by trees which make for a nice natural setting. There is a picnic table at each site. The bathrooms were new and very clean. There were no showers in the campground (you can pay for one near the store) so we could not rate them. Our rate reflects the Senior discount. Very nice National Park campground.

We really enjoyed this park and this campground. At noon we got the last site available for the day so it is necessary to get there early for this 1st come - 1s served campground. But is is a lovely campground. The site was well treed, fairly level and big enough for our 35' RV. But the best thing is that is near the fruit trees and it was fall so we could pick apples for dinner or for snack. We picked 3 and had apple granola pancakes for dinner. Next day, we took 2 for snacking on our hikes. We also bought an an apple pie still warm from the oven on our way out of the park. There are trails you can take right from the campground but there are loads of trails throughout the park. We liked this park better than many we have visited. The rocks had the best coloring we have seen, the trails were great and the history of the Mormons in the area has been preserved by the Park Service. The price above reflects the Sr. discount. We stayed only 3 days but will definitely be back and we've been telling everyone to visit this park.

Location, location, location. This campground has it. We stayed here a week and enjoyed every minute. The shuttle, the visitor center and the town are all nearby and in walking distance. Many sights have trees and greenery growing around them. The park service has roped much of this greenery off in an attempt to get it to grow lusher but we saw lots of campers walking over this roping. Our site was level, had a picnic table and was big enough for our 35' rig. Camping inside a National Park is a magical experience: we watched the rising sun move down the mountains on our West and the shadows of the setting sun creep up Watchman, the mountain on our East. Can anything be better? The tunnel and the construction on route 9 coming into the park from the East make driving a sticky wicket. We would not feel comfortable driving anything larger than a 35' rig in to the park from this direction. In fact, we left the Park to the south and curled under to get to Page. Much more relaxing drive this way during the construction.

We found this campground a marvelous place to stay and visit the Canyon. You're right in the park, next to a shuttle stop, not too far from the village store, post office and visitor center. We have a 35' RV and could not stay in Mather so this was our alternative. As others have said, the sights are asphalt but it has broken apart in places so it might be a bit difficult to level. There is a concrete barrier around where you park your RV and the sewer is on the other side. Thus people end up draping their sewer hose over the barrier. It would be nice if they would cut a hole in the barrier big enough for the hose. The bathrooms were always clean but there were no showers so I could not rate them. This is not a resort but it has location, location, location. There were trees and greenery on the ground, mealtime for the deer. We had does, fawns and bucks circling the RV's any time of day and other campers circling to take pictures. Some sites were big enough and long enough for 45' rigs. YOU MUST RESERVE EARLY. All of the sites were reserved the entire week we were there.

Nice campground with helpful office staff and management. Good WiFi and loads of cable TV channels. Each site has a grassy spot with a picnic table. Most also have trees, which, in September in Utah, is a helpful amenity. The sites were level and pull-through. We could park our car in front of our RV. Well off 191 so traffic noise was not a problem. They had just picked the peaches and they were out for campers to take. It is 5 miles south of Moab but the drive is easy. Would I camp here again? You bet.

We stayed 6 nights here to visit the sites in Independence and Kansas City. The Truman home and museum and the National Trails Museum were within walking distance but not when the temps are 95 - so we drove. Level cement pads, picnic tables on each site, The campground along with the showers, bathrooms and laundry room were clean and well maintained and the office management was friendly and helpful. Yes, there are trains but after the first night I did not hear them. Would we stay here again? Yes, absolutely.

This is a very new gated park and well maintained. We were on a concrete pad which had a picnic table and grass around it. We found the sites extremely close and when we had out living room slide out, the neighbors had to park their truck at an angle so they could open both doors. They had a very nice TV and reading lounge with a very clean laundromat. It is close to a great walking or biking trail and is a good place to be to visit Salt Lake City. We knew that there was an off-road vehicle park next door but never heard it. Nor were we bothered by highway noises nor any smells coming from a refinery. We would camp here again. They base their prices upon the length of the pad you need for your RV and our RV is 35'.

An excellent new campground and the owners are working on it everyday. Large pull-through sites with lots of shorter back-ins also. There are fire pits and a table at each site on a rock base with grass surrounding it. There is a bunkhouse or cabins also. There is also a large area for campers who bring their horses and dirt road trails for riding. This is an excellent site for visiting Mount Rushmore, Jewel and Wind Caves, the Mammoth Site, Custer SP, Crazy Horse, and all the hiking in the area. They have great free Wi-Fi and an ice cream social in the evenings. We loved the proximity to the huge as Texas caramel rolls at the small restaurant in town. We think this campsite is an excellent one and will only get better. The owners both work very hard and love next door. We would definitely stay here again. The nightly rate reflects the Passport America discount.

The rate we paid $19 was for one night at a site where we did not use the hook-ups. This is a basic campsite but the owners are working on it. They had just put up some new playground equipment (we saw the box in which it came as they were unpacking the it.) We also came the weekend they had opened for the summer so they were still working on getting it ready for the season. This is a good basic campground for visiting the Badlands and the Minuteman Missile NHS, a not-to be missed tour. We would stay here again.

This is a very nice family friendly county park in Fort Dodge, Iowa. We stayed on a Memorial Day weekend when all the sites were full and were pleasantly surprised when we noticed how quiet it was in the evening. The park has a golf course, a lake for swimming, fishing and boating (no gas motors allowed), picnic areas, hiking trails and a memorial amphitheater on one side of the lake. The sites were level, grassy and a picnic table and fire pit were at each site. They have wi-fi available, but it costs. They take no reservations, and it is difficult to get a spot on a holiday weekend since those in the know put a vehicle or fill in the paperwork to get a site early in the week to reserve this site for the weekend. We were lucky to get the last electric only spot on a Thursday morning and were able to switch to a full hook-up on Monday, Memorial Day, after some others had left. We have been here before and would definitely stay again.

Several have mentioned the trains running nearby. Yes, these made some noise but so did the delightful meadowlark singing outside our windows. This is not an RV resort but it is a nice campground with grass and trees just leafing out in May. The spaces were level and we did not need to use any levelers. Next door is the Western History Center with displays on prehistory, wagon trails, stage routes and other pertinent information for this area. The roads were pea gravel and did not dust up. The campground was quiet. We found it very convenient to visiting the wagon ruts, the register cliff and Fort Laramie. The owner had a plethora of material and pamphlets about the area. I enjoyed this modest campground.

A very nice, well-run campground. There are 7 lakes for fishing and they even stock bass (for catch and release), trout and catfish. There are small paddle boats and canoes available for rental. Each site comes with a picnic table. Depending upon your fee, the site may be asphalt or sand, lakeside or not, large or small. Ours was right on the lake for a monthly fee of $620 + electricity. Many of the campsites are long term but you may stay for only 6 months before you need to leave for 14 days. Then, of course, you can come back. We had no trouble fitting into our site and there are many large rigs here. On the other hand, it is a nice mixture of big and small, fancy and plain rigs. We enjoyed the campground and would return.

Our rate reflects a monthly rate. We enjoyed this campground. Though the campsites were fairly close, there was a hedge between each site and we hardly saw or heard our neighbors except when we were outside and talking with them. Did I feel squeezed, certainly not. Did I have privacy, I certainly did. This resort revolves around golf and the course always appeared full of players, well groomed though I do not play golf. There is an exercise room, a pool, tennis courts, several dog walks (washes between streets) a very nice clubhouse with a game room and another quiet room for reading or computer work. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the grounds crew kept the place nicely groomed. It is an active campground with people biking, walking, golfing, etc. We loved seeing everyone always about. There are several active hiking clubs and organized hikes at least twice per week. There was a nice mix of park models, monthly and seasonal renters and clubs. Would we go there again, in a New York minute.

This park is an Escapees park which means that the employees are very friendly and helpful, the laundry and restrooms are sparkling clean and so are the showers. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed the quiet and peace of the place. It is a typical gravel campground with a concrete covered patio for every 2 rigs with plenty of space to park a car. I would recommend this campground to anyone who wanted to spend a few nights in Pecos. Don't miss the museum in town.

We found this to be a gem and agree with the other reviewers. The sites are long, easy to get into and mostly pull-through. There is a cement patio at each site. the owners are extremely helpful and eager to please. The showers and bathroom facilities are very clean. There is a game room, an exercise room, a pool with a hot tub and several cabins for large parties. It would be perfect for reunions and rallies. There are also quite a few cabins for those visitors who do not have an RV. There is a well-equipped store and we were able to buy a 12-volt bulb to replace the one which had just burned out. They also stock those items which you might have forgotten or just run out of like ketchup, dish soap, napkins, etc. The campground is flat and there is even a walking trail. I am so pleased that we found this campground and took a chance on it. We would certainly camp here again and recommend it to our friends.

Our nightly rate reflects a monthly rate of $380. We enjoyed this resort and would certainly go there again. There are lots of activities provided and buffet dinners every other week. The sites are ample, have a picnic table on a small patio and most are landscaped well, though the lots on the hill are a bit more crowded. The laundry and bathrooms were clean as was the commons room. Since it is right on the bay, the views are magnificent and the bird watching is an added bonus. Many of the people who are there are returnees and have been there for many years. There is even a woman who is a retired beautician and cuts hair. They do not list wi-fi as one of their amenities and, in truth, though they do have it, it is very intermittent.

We enjoyed this park. The manager was very enthusiastic, and provided a good map and useful information for the surrounding area, even a good place to have breakfast. There are 2 washers and 2 dryers which cost $1.00 each. There is even a TV in the laundry along with a big screen TV in the commons room. The sites are spacious and level. There is free cable and good Wi-Fi. There are grills at some of the sites and picnic tables on a patio. The bathrooms were clean and well-maintained. We would most certainly camp here again. This is a terrific location to visit Fort Davis and The McDonald Observatory.

The rate quoted for 31 days or a monthly rate of $400. Nice resort and we would stay here again. The sites have concrete pads which are mostly level and they are attached to a small concrete patio. Unfortunately, this patio is very close to your neighbor's sewer hose. There are a few tables about but not enough for everyone to have one on their patio. The bathrooms and laundry are exceptionally clean and the trash is picked up daily. They have two WIFI towers and, when one is not working or weak, you can log onto the second. The washers and dryers are usually in good working order. When two washers were broken, they were fixed quickly. On the other hand one of the dryers has been broken for a while now. The staff is friendly and helpful and puts on Sun and Sat breakfasts, a very nice Christmas dinner at which the resort provided the ham and turkey while we all provided the buffet items and other entertainments. The roads are mainly asphalt but there are rock surfaces for each site to get onto the concrete pad. These rock surfaces do make for dust when it is windy. The drive into central San Antonio is about 12 miles and the nearest good shopping is about 6 miles away. However, I did not use this consideration when rating the resort since it is not within their control.

We camped here for 3 nights. The sites are grass with dirt and gravel where you park. There is a picnic table with each site and a fire pit near. Though the sites are smaller and you are somewhat close to your neighbors, it was not a noisy campground. There is a small fishing pond and a playground in the park which is next to the campground. We thoroughly enjoyed the campground but found the nearby showers not what we expected. There are two sets of showers, one in the campground and one near the Library / Community Center at the other end of the park. Firstly, they cost money and secondly they need some updating. We used the showers near the Community Center and, while there was a bench nearby for your clothes, etc., it was outside the shower in the main bathroom. Thus everyone must dress out in the open where there were people coming in to use the bathrooms. As I was going into the shower, a small boy was leaving with his mother. Imagine our surprise had he come in while I was changing. This campground is very convenient to the bike trail which is why we chose it. It is also in town and, should you need to do some last minute grocery shopping, there is a small grocery store in the town. There are also many shops and restaurants should you wish to shop. There is also a winery in town. Had the bathrooms and showers been nicer, this campground would have gotten a higher rating.

This is not a traditional campground since it is connected to the Wisconsin State Fair Grounds. Thus, it was really an asphalt parking lot with hookups. That said, we enjoyed it and found it extremely convenient for touring Milwaukee, which we were there to do. It is very well lighted and there is a fence around it. The laundry has many washers and dryers and is very clean. The campground is staffed and these people were very helpful. We were able to log onto the WI-FI without any problem and found the signal very strong. We were not there during the State Fair but were there for the Wisconsin 4H horse show and enjoyed that thoroughly.

We enjoyed this site and would certainly camp here again. The sites were well spaced and ample for a motor home towing a car. The sites were gravel and had a picnic table. The area between sites was grassy with a lot of trees. The area was quiet even though full - probably because the sites were so well spaced. The dump area is open during the day but the park ranger was extremely helpful and opened the dump area for us when we returned after these hours. The bathrooms were cleaned daily.

We found this to be an excellent campground having gravel sites with a picnic table on each one. It was right on a major bike trail and we were able to bike into Madison itself and around Lake Monona. The showers were clean and had locked doors for each stall. There are no water hook-ups but there are several water faucets spaced throughout the camp and one was close enough to our site that we could hook up to and refill our water tank without having to move. This campground was quiet, clean and the host was very helpful with suggestions. We certainly would camp here again and were sorry to have to leave but I had to return to work.
