Restrooms were acceptable but would not call them clean. Park was crowded and needed more frequent attention. Trash around the building never picked up during our 3-day stay. Crowded park, sites very close together. Road and train noise was loud. Can't imagine anyone not hearing it throughout the night. We stayed without reservation during Stampede and paid for our lack of planning. Would not return. Overpriced for a site with no services, even during Stampede week.

Well maintained state park. Good big rig lay out, easy to maneuver, sites level and well spaced. Even with minimal hookups (elec only), park deserves a '9' for layout and maintenance, as well as location, location, location. Beautiful.

Rate reflects weekly stay/discount. Good facilities, well designed/maintained park. Restrooms/showers very nice. Good site sizes and roadways for big rigs. Easy access from interstate. Some road noise but not intolerable. For visiting the Amarillo area, this looked to be the nicest park for the money.

Rate reflects camping and daily park entrance fee. A bit pricey for an electric-only site. Sites are a bit narrow, particularly when the park is full. Good location in Loveland. Would use again for an overnight stay in the area.

Rate reflects camping fee and daily entrance fee. Very nice, relatively new, state park. Facilities work as expected. Great views over Colorado Springs. Sites very comfortably spaced, easy big rig maneuvering. Web site seems to describe each site well. Surprisingly, the restrooms were clean enough but not maintained daily. Trash seemed to remain for the full week we were there.

Rate reflects monthly fee/discount. Well designed park. Facilities work and maintained as expected. Good maneuverability for big rigs. Sites very comfortably spaced. No shade (not a concern for us in the winter). Nice location.

Well designed park, good sites, facilities function as expected, restrooms/showers well maintained. Easy access and big rig maneuvering. Sites are great size and lay out. Casino was fun. We'll be back. Rate reflects Passport America discount.

Facilities worked as expected. Sites/roads are a little narrow for big rig maneuvering. Cement sites are nice, but corners that drop off 3-4+ inches are real tire-cutters. Had to lay boards in order to maneuver into our site without dropping into muddy grass or risk tires on cement edges. Many vehicles parked at the end of sites limit the roadways. For the Galveston area, the park is reasonable, just be mindful of big rig maneuvering.

Beautiful, well maintained. Good facilities all working as expected. Sites are well designed with plenty of room for big rigs. Camp hosts are friendly and very helpful. Poulson and region are a great destination for outdoor recreation. We travel around the country often and this park definitely deserves our '10'. We look forward to coming back.

Facilities all worked as expected. Restrooms/showers were very well maintained. Park owners/staff were very helpful and friendly. Nice town and region. A few sites have a town view, but the road noise on the hillside offsets the view over the car dealership and the valley. Sites are a little narrower than we like, but adequate for a big rig with multiple slideouts. Biggest drawback was the number of dogs living/staying at the park and freely roaming loose. Reasonably well behaved dogs, but doing what dogs do: hanging out when BBQ'ing, sitting outside the door when cooking, dog poo on the doormat at the step and in the site (although the owners regularly pick up after their dogs), generally roaming our site and checking anything we're eating/drinking/doing.

Very nice park, great bath and laundry facilities, easy layout for big rigs. Nice level sites, good WiFi at the site. Good location to shopping and the Duluth area.

HIGHLY recommend. Very spacious sites, well designed and maintained park, facilities are excellent, restrooms are among the cleanest we've ever seen. Owners are friendly and welcoming. Obviously a family friendly park, that is equally as comfortable and peaceful for those without children. Lots of open space. Quiet location surrounded by farm fields, with easy interstate access. Price reflects monthly rate.

If you like KOA’s, you may like this place. We are fulltime RV’ers, travel often and avoid KOA because we have always found them to be overpriced, mediocre or worse, with employees that resent the customers. This park fits the mold: overpriced, sites are too close, some are level and some not (we got one that wasn’t). Roads and sites are gravel, drive turns are tight for big rigs, electric works, water pressure is low or lower depending on how full the park, bathrooms are as clean as many parks, laundry works. No Wi-Fi beyond the office building. Just a high-priced overnight stop if you need to be in the area. Plenty of other equal or better options. Life is too short to put up with owners/employees who don’t like dealing with customers. “Welcome” came in the form of staff coming to the vehicle as we parked at the gate, to tell us to park and go inside to register because apparently we can’t read the three signs? I generally wait in the rig while my wife registers. Next part of the ‘welcome’ was a golf cart guide impatiently telling me to follow him before my wife returned or I knew anything about the park, our site or our registration. Although I remarked about waiting for my wife, the golf cart guide yelled insistently that I had to get parked “now.” He’s clearly already aggravated that I wasn’t following commands fast enough. Unlike most parks we visit, the golf cart guide was not guiding me to our site, but he knows more than me about maneuvering our rig and wanted to tell me how and when to turn the steering wheel as I moved through the park and into our site. Because, of course, I still did not know anything about the park lay out or what site we were headed for. He just liked to yell “turn your wheel now.” My wife and I are comfortable working together to quickly and easily park our rig, and admit that we trust our own parking experience far more than deciphering the yelling of a stranger with an attitude. When we were finally parked and thoroughly aggravated with the commanding and unhelpful guidance, the guide lastly had to point out to my wife that the electric was on the electric post, the septic was in the ground, and the water was at the water faucet. Apparently they believe too many customers with big rigs don’t know what those look like. Seems to us that a gracious: "Welcome, is there anything else you need from me?" would have been more than sufficient and a lot less insulting. Whenever we saw employees during our stay, we waved and smiled as we are accustomed to friendliness at the parks we visit. Without exception the staff simply stared at us blankly and were clearly annoyed by every guest. Rules and attitude suggest that pets and children are barely tolerated. Be sure to watch out for the fire pit (hole in the ground) at each site. Amazing if they have a liability insurance carrier that knows about those. Most folks moved table or chairs over the hole to avoid falling or driving in. Life is too short. If you want to avoid aggravation, we strongly urge you go to another park. We enjoy parks where helpful staff know that we have choices and appreciate that we are the source of their business revenue. Won't return.

Small, nicely maintained park surrounded by peaceful farmland. Owners are friendly and welcoming. No sewer hookup, but site had a grey water dump and clean restrooms/showers were very convenient. Wi-Fi worked well in our rig. Walking distance to quaint Winesburg, beautiful countryside. We stayed two weeks longer than planned and will definitely return.

The rate reflects Passport America and Good Sam discounts. The water, 30AMP, sewer & cable work as advertised, the wifi is very slow or intermittent. The restrooms/showers are older and "usually" clean. The sites are not level and need gravel or other hard surface; grass is too soft and muddy. There are tight turns, site space, trees, and hills are difficult for big rigs. We will not return.

Lovely setting on the Erie Canal, owners are friendly and helpful, park facilities were constantly maintained, sites are spacious and services all worked well. Restrooms are clean and well maintained. We will definitely return to this park.

Sites are reasonable size and services generally functioned as advertised. Office is old, cramped, unclean, and filled with cigarette smoke. The park is noisier than we like. Pool filled on the weekends with children, highway noise behind our site, frequent trains day and night, and weekend karaoke music until 11 pm loud enough to hear inside every rig across the entire park. Laundry facilities consist of one working washer and a dryer that did not dry anything. Laundry building and restroom/bathhouse are old and deteriorated, open to all the elements and bugs, chicken-wire doors, if any, open wood slat floors, leaking water, dirty/moldy showers, no light or A/C in laundry building except for open door. Site electric posts have no fuse, an obvious safety concern when plugging in since we couldn't turn it off first. Will not stay here again.
