This is an average campground. Only 30 amp and no sewer was available. The place needed a good landscaping, and grass needs mowing. The owner was a little grouchy; not too bad but just a little. No WiFi or Verizon phone service either. Roads and sites are not paved, all gravel. It's an average place, not upscale but far from being a bad place. For the $23, it was an ok place. If in the area again, I would check out other parks to see what others might have to offer.
Usual KOA, a bit over priced for what you get , but I guess the KOA folks need their cut for advertising and other franchise costs,. Average park, gravel roads and grass/gravel campsites. WiFi was very slow so used my Verizon. Owners were very nice.
This is the second stay in this park for us. Both were long term, four months this time because of rotator cuff surgery (OUCH!). This is a pretty nice place. As long term guests, we have a back-in site in the trees but there are many pull-throughs for over nighters. Our site is in the trees on the north side of the lake. It's quiet and peaceful. Was guided to the site and the staff is constantly cleaning and keeping things in order. Daily garbage pick up. Cable is great as is the very superb internet. Probably the best Wi-Fi in any campground - ever. Faster than my Verizon MiFi. Lots of weekend activities. The office staff is superb - as are all the other park enployees. Nice folks and that's unusual in this day and age. Two drawbacks - the bad part of town begins on the other side of the I-225 freeway but there have been no problems whatsoever. It is also colder here during the winter than I'd like it to be. I like this place and will stay here again if in the area. The rate is based on a monthly stay.
Used the park as a hub for other activities in Gatlinburg and GSMNP. Was not there during daylight hours, just used it for sleeping. It's a nice place, roads are somewhat narrow, but we stayed near the entrance so it was not an issue. It was quiet and peaceful. Worked well for us - no reason not to stay here again.
This is a laid back campground. This is my second visit here, both of which were for just a couple of nights. Easy access from I-95, but the sites were a little tight; not bad, but not wide open either - about average. Hosts were superb. Wasn't there long enough to know about social functions so might want to check that out first. A large truck stop at the end of the road - no noise at all but good prices for diesel. Overall, a nice place. Will stay there again if in the area.
This is the second stay in the park over the last few years and it was as good as the first one. This is a very nice place, one of the better ones around. Sites are level and very long with most being pull-through. Some trees for shade while others are open for better Sat TV. The path around the lake is a great hike - take the time and enjoy the peace and wildlife. Everything was spotless and well maintained. Hosts were excellent, juggling things around so we could stay a few extra days over Thanksgiving. It is out in the country a ways but thats a good thing - so I think anyway. It's quiet and secure with an coded entrance gate for after hours. No cable TV which upset the wife a little, but the over the air channels were OK. I would stay here again if in the area.
The price reflects the monthly rate. Shorter rates are $200 per week or $400 for two weeks, but it's only $350 for a month so you might want to spring for the monthy rate if staying for more than ten days. The campground is actually in Utah and not Nevada and is behind the Shell service station which makes it a little hard to find. The place was full upon arriving so I just parked my rig in the truck parking area of the Shell station and was not bothered by anyone. Other travelers who were just passing through parked there for a night as well. There are no bathrooms and there are no showers and a central dumpster for trash. Long back-in cement parking pads with a rather large walk-out. Reservations are not available and registration is at the front desk of The Nugget Casino and it is a little hap-hazard. If there is an open site, that means it's available so if you take your rig out for a day or two, it might be a good idea to leave a sewer hose or some other camping stuff at the site so folks will know that it is still occupied. The cable TV worked fine as did the Verizon Wi-Fi and phone. About 60% of the spaces were occupied with semi-permanent campers, but they seemingly all had employment in the area since the place was quite deserted during the daytime. The only other RV park in town is the KOA (all gravel) and since they are much more expensive, I'd elect to stay here again.
Ths park is OK; not bad, but just OK. It doesn't seem to be big rig friendly since when in a pull-through site I was hanging out both ends until I unhooked and stowed my tow dolley. If I had my toad along instead, there would have been no problem. Sites were a little tight but manageable; it would have been worse if using slide-outs. The office staff was superb, one of the best.
This is a most enjoyable place. It seems to be a family owned park and that's fine by me since I get better service from smaller places than larger corporate establishments. Central location with food and gasoline available close by. The office staff was very helpful when asked about the local attractions as well as being able to recommend other parks in nearby cities. They also cautioned about travel on roads under construction. Verizon Wi-Fi and phone worked perfectly. I would seek out this place and would stay here again if in the area.
I was at this park for five days or so and it was a very enjoyable stay. Grass sites but fairly wide spaces. The office staff was most friendly to me. This place is fourteen miles from the west entrance to Yellowstone. Showers were hot. I never ran out and I take long showers. There is a very huge laundry and the machines worked perfectly. Propane was available as is a gas station and the prices were competitive. Would consider staying here again but would like to be somewhat closer to Yellowstone since that's where I spent most of my time.
The rate reflects a monthly stay. I found this place to be OK, not perfect but still OK. There are a lot of permanent park models here with a number of sites reserved for travelers. The permanent residents were most enjoyable to mingle with. They treated my like one of their own and not like an outsider. The site assigned to me was grassy, no pad but it was large and private with pine trees on one side. Activities were few and far between so this might not be a good place for a destination vacation. The showers are free and warm but are of the push-the-knob-every-20 seconds-type, which gets old in a hurry. Laundry facilities were excellent. There is a trail that surrounds the private lake and I walked it several times. A few docks are available for fishing which is free. Cabins on the lake are available. Verizon phone and Internet worked good. The office staff was most pleasant: even back-posting and adjusting the rate when I elected to stay for a month instead of a week. I would stay here again.
Physically this is a pretty neat place. Lots of trees, clean and spacious campsites. This is the peak of the season here in Michigan and surprisingly this place was about ten percent full, perhaps five percent is a better estimate. The place was so empty you could shoot a cannon through here and not injure a soul, which means you pretty much have your choice of campsites. This campground is very close to the Bavarian village of Frankenmuth which is good thing. Visit the bistros, gift shops, as well as the old brewery that has been in operation for well over a hundred years. Now it’s a microbrewery. The park is close to the large outlet mall at Birch Run as well. Also, Dixie Motor Speedway, a 3/8 mile paved track, is only 3-4 miles away and if you know what to listen for, you can hear the engines in the distance but other campers never noticed one bit. The fat old geezer who rides around in a golf cart is obnoxious and seems to be on a power trip of some sort. He came speeding to my site loudly yelling that I had traveled the wrong way down a one way road. I immediately yelled back that I didn’t see his lousy sign and furthermore the place was empty after which the discussion got even more verbally intense. After a minute or two I guess he began to realize that I was not going to back down after which he became significantly more cordial. After this encounter he was very friendly, waving and smiling every time he went by. I guess that "boundaries" of some sort had to be established, or something. The office staff was very nice to me, helping with directions to various events. One gal in the office even used her personal cell phone and downloaded some stuff from Map Quest in order to help me get where I wanted to go. Cannot do much better that that. The showers cost a quarter for just a few minutes but they were hot and clean. There must be a tower nearby because the Verizon Internet worked good as did the Verizon phone. There is an operating oil well at the entrance to the park which was interesting. Maybe I’d stay here again or maybe not. It depends on what is going on in the area that sparks my interest. I deducted one point for the pay showers and another point for the attitude displayed by the old geezer in the golf cart. Ahh, what more can be said about control disorders, eh? LOL. Peace.
Rate listed reflects the $450 monthly cost. This is a neat place. It's well groomed, paved roads and sites. Some speed bumps but I guess they're needed or they would not be there. Lots of various activities along with two pools and a hot tub. Bathroom/showers are private rooms and are clean. Not spotless but still OK. Never ran out of hot water and I take long showers. The laundry uses water saving Kenmore washers and they use very little rinse water, not enough for me so I took the waste basket and filled it with water and added it to the rinse cycle - it works great! The Wi-Fi is iffy, sometimes it works very well and other times it logs off every few minutes. I found the staff to be about average - not the best but certainly not the worst. There were a few ant hills - I keep my own supply of ant granules (Spectracide from Lowe's) and after treating once, they never came back. Anchors Aweigh Resort is about two miles north of here and in my opinion, they are both very good places. More trees here but Anchors Aweigh has better Wi-Fi and it's the newer of the parks. I would stay at either place again.
This is a very nice park, the closest to Fairhope. Stayed almost a week. Very clean, super hosts, paved roads along with cement drives and pads at the sites. The only negative is there was no cable television which is important to the wife. Nice grass, no weeds and didn't see any ant activity. Deducted a point for lack of cable but if you use sat TV you will be fine. I would stay here again if in the area.
National park campgrounds are usually neat places and this was no exception. Several pull through sites in each of the loops. Lots of space between sites. Some sites some are not too level though so check first. Showers only take tokens (10 minutes per $1) which are available for purchase at the store and since we arrived after hours, had to wait until the next morning when the store opened to shower. Good shower though, lots of hot water. Be advised the shower stops without warning so suds up first - then rinse quickly to keep the soap out of your eyes. Price reflects Federal Golden Age Passport.
This is a city park campground. It is off the expressway a little but the campground host provided excellent directions and with the GPS help, we drove right in. Typical city run establishment, no surprises. No sewer but we had 50 amp and water which is fine for an overnight stay. Gravel roads and sites. The hosts were excellent! Arrived well after dark and was guided to the site. Left early the next day so cannot accurately evaluate the entire operation. I'd camp here again.
First of all, we chose this park because it was the only one open this late in the season. I do not give "10's" because you just might find something better later on - lol. Anyway, this place is great and it probably is a "10". Campground hosts and workers are perfect. It is spotless, regardless of where you look. Sites are large and well spaced. Paved roads, cement pads and easy hook-ups. Facilities were spotless and very upscale. Great internet and it never dropped out. I looked very hard and long and did find one thing that could have been better and that was the sewer hookup was an inch above the ground - I prefer them to be level with the grass to prevent and liquid from being trapped in the hose. Yeah, picky - lol. In closing, overall this is a VERY nice place.
I was here before the park was ready for the season but they still let me camp for a week anyway. The bath facilities were not open yet. This is very typical of the Michigan State Park system: ie, kind of rustic, no frills, which is the way it should be. The staff was great. Roads are paved (very rough coming in) and the campsites are grass/gravel and they are spaced quite a distance apart. If you are looking for an upscale RV resort with all the bells and whistles, well, this might not be the best place. However, it is one of only a very few campgrounds in the area. This is a good place if you enjoy the woods and nature kind of thing. If in the area, I'd sign up to stay again.
I used this park because of RV mechanical problems. This is a very new park: it is a KOA. The roads were still being built when I was here. There were no pads and dirt was everywhere. The staff was great as was their Wi-Fi. Bath areas were great, lots of hot water and clean same for the laundry area. I-65 traffic noise was excessive since it is right next to the freeway. I downgraded a point because of the noise. Give this place a few months to get things organized and it will be excellent.
This is a pretty decent place. I was on the river for a week or so the I asked to be moved to a different site for improved Wi-Fi. It didn't work because their Wi-Fi and Windows Vista are not compatible. I used my Verizon setup and since there is a tower nearby, it worked perfectly. The staff was most friendly. One complaint: the showers were ice cold and when asked to make them warmer, it didn't happen so I used the RV shower instead. Not a big thing but still not good. This place is a little remote but that's ok by me. If you want lots of extra curricular activities or tons of entertainment, you might be disappointed. I would stay hear again.
A newer campground with lots of grass, clean with cement pads and an asphalt drive. The WiFi was ok but it works better the closer you camp to the antennaes. The pool was nice. It used salt water instead of chlorine, worked for me. The sites are too close together so I downgraded a point. It is a little more expensive for what you get too. I've stayed here a few days for the last couple of years and would return if in the area.
I have been camping in this park for over 30 years so I guess I like it. It's the closest NP campground to Jackson and it's located on the Gros Ventre road to Kelly Warm Springs. You turn east onto this road off US-26, 89 & 189 (the main N/S road in the Park), just south of the entrance to the Jackson Hole airport. NP traffic signs are kind of small so be on the alert. It's a dry camping only, rustic park and this year I stayed in the loop designed for larger RV's that allowed generator usage all night. Other loops do not allow any generators so choose your site accordingly. It is the last campground in the park to fill up and most of the time it never fills up so if you are arriving late at night, there is a good possibility that there will be an empty site somewhere. Moose were all over the place this year, other wildlife can be found near the Gros Ventre river. Bison are common place. Check in procedure is a little weird. You tour the grounds, pick a site and then come back and pay for the site. If you have the opportunity, don't miss the daily gunfight in Jackson. It happens late in the afternoon but check the time to be sure. P.S. The good guys always win - lol.
First night here but everything seems very good. The Wi-Fi is Tengo, is free and consistent with no log-outs. You can watch you tube so it is fast enough for me. The grounds are immaculate, few trees and those trees are very small. Nice grass, no weeds and few if any ant hills that seemingly dot this area of the country. All roads are paved and the sites are concrete, level and very long. Sewer hook-up is at the middle of the site and was a little long to reach but we just moved the coach forward about four feet and everything was OK, still had ample room to park the toad. The staff has been great even when accommodating the wife in changing sites so the afternoon sun would not flood our picnic table area. It's a quiet place with lots of shopping areas and restaurants.
My experience here was typical KOA, no surprises. Showers were clean and hot. Wi-Fi was good. Sites were gravel as I remember with some shade trees. Filled up with LPG while here for the unbelievable price of $1.59/gallon. That's right, very inexpensive. All in all a good place to camp for a few days. I would return here if in the area.
This place is ok, sort of. It's one of the few places around so, any port in the storm. It's in a bad part of town but they do have a security gate. Mostly permanent residents with what seems to be a bunch of illegals right outside the gate milling around waiting for the bus. The office staff was nice to us. Our site was gravel but it was level. Showers were old but clean. Wi-Fi was good, fast and never dropped out. Camp here if you have business in the immediate area - -otherwise I'd suggest that you find another spot.
Ah, well, what can you say, this is Las Vegas and this is the closest park (north end) to the strip. It's a KOA and is just a large concrete and asphalt parking lot with hook-ups. There are a few shade trees but those sites cost extra. It's on the industrial fringe but there are a couple of very huge hotels and casinos being built nearby so it will not be industrial for long. I found the staff to be most friendly. The internet worked well. Showers and pool were great as well. I felt secure because the Circus Circus hotel is a very short, across-the-street walk after which you can stroll through the place and exit onto the strip, which is great. We sampled the buffet at Circus and found it to be mediocre at best. Since I've now experienced this park once, I'd probably not stay here again but think next time I'll try the SE part of the city. Has better campground prices and a better variety of buffets (Green Valley Ranch was good) from which to choose. According to my instrument, it was 115.4 degrees F during the afternoon and with both ac units running it was still 88 degrees inside the coach. The sun load is unreal and the heat just bounces off everything. You cannot escape it until the sun sets and then things are much cooler, at least inside the motorhome.
This is a nice place, with great hosts and a variety of sites. Sunny ones for good satellite and shady ones for getting out of the sun. 50 amp electrical which is nice for the a/c in hot August. The Wi-Fi worked flawlessly both times I was here. Showers are clean and I never ran out of hot water. Far enough from the I-15 freeway to be quiet yet close enough to be easy to get to. Zion and Cedar Breaks National Parks are close by and Bryce Canyon is just a little farther. I've stayed several days here once before in 2006 and came back so I guess I liked it.
A very nice place for sure. One shower was good while the other had broken tile in the floor so I checked it as being dirty but the other bath house was under repair so I'd think everything will be ok shortly. The water was too cool in one shower but the other was superb so you might want to check out the temp before committing - lol. Water and 50 amp but no Wi-Fi and no sewer at the site but we knew that going in, after all it's a rustic park. The beaches were super fantastic, pristine and no one was here. You can stroll for miles and not see another human being. Just like a deserted island. The nature trails were equally impressive. It is nine miles from US-98, across a causeway & bridge (free) and then East through town but it's certainly worth the drive. Take the time and camp here, you'll be glad you did.
This is a quiet and relaxed park with friendly hosts. It is easy on-off the road (US-98) and we had a pull-through site but others were backed in to the ocean, super for everyone. The internet was great, fast and no logoffs and I used it a lot. The entire place was gravel, stones and shells: no pads and no paved roads. That allowed our dog to track in a little dirt but hey, that's OK because you're right on the Gulf and the beach was super nice. There is a fishing pier (free). This is a "Ma and Pa" kind of place and that's fine with me. If in the area, I'd seek out this park again.
This is not a very good park but it was late and I was tired of driving so I stayed there for a few days. I was flying back to Michigan in a few days and did not want to have to winterize my coach again so I did not connect to their sewer or water - I used their public facilities. The Wi-Fi worked fine. The baths were dirty and needed to be renovated - that's is true of the entire park. There were many permanent residents living in travel trailers some of which did not appear to be employed as they were there all day long. If you are just passing through and need a place to hookup for the night this place might be ok - other than that, I'd find somewhere else to camp. It's probably better than a freeway rest area or a Walmart parking lot but not by much - lol. At $35 a night this is not a very good value. However, I cannot fault the folks working there as they were most pleasant and courteous.
We wintered in this park for a couple of months and were pleased with the experience. Other posters have described this place quite well. It was a nice place and we will probably stay here again if in the area. The staff was friendly and were everywhere cleaning and keeping the place tidy. We had a problem with the electrical and the cable TV immediately upon arriving, but they had an electrician who fixed everything within minutes. The monthly rate was $650/month including everything which I feel is a good value.
This is a newer campground and is one of the the best I've ever stayed in. The place is immaculate with concrete pads for each site. The road currently is hard packed aggregate but the curbs have been poured so it looks like paved roads are planned for the near term. The bath/showers were spotless. The showers themselves are large 6 foot by 6 foot tiled rooms with ample hot water and lighting. The Wi-Fi was fast, never dropped out and I used it extensively. The grass was great, had no weeds and it was even edged where it met the concrete slab at the site. The owner/manager lives on site and was very nice and helpful with information on the area. We were provided with phone numbers for the office and his cell phone as well. Being new, the trees are still a little small but satellite reception is perfect. The only minor downside is the place is in a light industrial area with storage buildings and such but still within walking distance of the beach and eateries. Having said that, there is a very upscale RV park (where the residents own their own lots) in the next block over so the area is not really all that bad and it seemed to be quite safe. It was a little expensive at $47/night but then again, this is Destin, Florida and the rates are competitive. If in the area, I would definitely stay here again.
At best, this is an average campground but with a change of attitude by the staff it would be a lot better. I am a heavy internet user and found the Wi-Fi to be almost useless because of the very slow speed and the drop out frequency. I was unable to use You Tube or download WMV or MPEG files because of the drop out and freeze up of the system. The office staff denied that anyone else was having trouble but after chatting with other campers I found the internet never did work very well and that their complaints seemed to fall on deaf ears too. I never did find a Wi-Fi user here that was happy with the system and several folks were quite savvy when it comes to the internet. I took my laptop and found another site where the Wi-Fi works a little better so we moved there but it still is not very good. There is no garbage pickup and they do not offer assistance in finding your site. The cable TV has limited channels and it is quite fuzzy. The restrooms and showers are not dirty but they are not sparkling clean either. The attitude of the staff seems to be, "That's the way it is" with no attempt to keep or improve customer satisfaction. This place will probably be ok if you are "satisfied with a little less" but my advice is to check out other campgrounds in the area and use this one as a last resort.
A very nice park, one of the better ones I've been to. Showers were spotless, had lots of hot water and the bathrooms were the same. Staff was cordial and the location is great: close in to Portland. My only criticism is the sites were quite close together and too short for my 38 footer and the toad.
Quiet and nice: you can hear the sea otters on the beach across the road. Everything was clean and tidy. We had a pull-through site and there was ample room for the motorhome and toad. The staff was helpful when asked about restaurants and what to see in the area. Showers were hot and clean.
This is a nice place: quiet, clean and the operators are friendly. I had a medical issue traveling down the road (kidney stone) and these folks were most helpful in getting things handled. I deducted a point because the showers take a quarter for three minutes. If in the area I would stay here once again.
This a a good place to camp if you are going to the space center, it is just a short walk. I had a site near the office so the wifi was excellent and the people in charge we most friendly. Not much activities but that was ok by me since I was there for the space center anyway. I had to hook up in the heavy rain - what can I say about the Alabame red clay - - LOL. I will stay here again if I am in the area.
I stayed here in August 2008. What a neat place. You contribute whatever you think is a fair amount for the electrical so I gave $20. My site was a pull-thru and very level. This campground seems to be part of the municipal airport and I did wander out onto the airport during my evening stroll. There was no one around at the airport, very peaceful. There were no planes the night I was there. I would stay here again if in the area.
A pretty nice place to camp. The staff was super friendly. Our site was directly on the water as are most others. I would return again if in the area. The price is right too. I dropped the rating one point because of no sewer and no internet access, but I knew that going in. Great cell phone so if you have a cell internet you will be in fine shape.
I stayed here for five months last winter and will probably return if the rates remain competitive. This is a pretty decent place. I used the showers everyday and they were spotless upon arriving, but they did get a little dirty and moldy after a few months. Management had them cleaned regularly but they were not as clean as I would have liked. I was parked near the wifi antenna so it worked quite well but others who were camped farther away did experience some troubles. The wireless stopped working a few times and each time it took a few days before it was repaired. I am a heavy internet user so this was an inconvience to me - not a major problem, but it did annoy me when it stopped working. Activities are minimal but that's ok since I'm not too social anyhow. I did not use the pool but everyone who did seemed to think it was too cold. It uses a solar heater located on the clubhouse roof but it doesn't seem to work very well. There is some noise from the hotel next door - it gets worse on Friday & Saturday nights. I was camped a fair distance away and it was not bothersome at all but this could be an issue if you were camped on the edge of the park next to the hotel parking lot. The location is good - -I enjoyed the activities in Clermont as well as Eustis. Very close to the Florida Turnpike. Management is better than average - not perfect, but all-in-all they were good to me.
Stay here only as a last resort. Staff was not friendly. Internet keeps logging off. Many long term trashy units - -some with plastic fences and tarps around and over the units. A fold out tent trailer with junk all over the site - - these may be some folks only home, even during the winter. Showers were hot but old and dirty and moldy.
This is a nice place, I enjoyed it and would stay there again. I have a residence in the area and camped here for a few days in the summer of 2007 due to a personal situation. It is centrally located and allows for day trips to Pictured Rocks National Park, Tahquamenon Falls State Park and Big Spring State Park. Seney National Wildlife Refuge is about five miles to the north. The lady who owns the place was very friendly and helpful. She is also a real estate agent so if you are in the market for property in the area, she is the one to see. The sites are larger than most places I've camped.
The roads are gravel and the site I had was grassy, no pad. The site was my choice in an attempt to get internet service inside the coach but I could not connect to their server. According to the owners, Wi-Fi is generally not available at the sites but it was available in the office area. The staff was friendly. Washer and dryers were excellent and the showers were average. I have stayed there previously and would stay there again.
I like this place. I was in the south loop and had a long paved pull-through site but there was no sewer. There are not many trees in the south loop (good satellite) but plenty of them elsewhere. It appeared that some of the sites in the trees may be a challenge to get in and out of but lots of folks were still camping there. Super friendly staff.
This is an "ok" park and it has mostly semi-permanent hurricane worker residents living there. The park itself was quiet but it is close to I-65 so there is some traffic noise. It is an older park with lots of trees and bushes for privacy but the road is narrow and has large speed bumps which really twisted my motor home regardless of how slowly I went over them. The two different young female staff members I dealt with were not overly friendly. It was like I was bothering them when asking questions. I arrived after nightfall and was not guided to the site and had difficulty finding it because the numbers are quite small and hard to find in the dark. I was finally assisted by other campers in finding the assigned site. The bath/showers were spotless. I would stay here again but would investigate other campground availability in the area first. Not a bad park but I dropped the rating one point because of the attitude of the staff.
This is a nice park, the owners are very friendly and helpful. A very quiet park. Bath area is spotless but I noticed only two bath/shower units. There are some shaded sites but some are in the open with no shade. Wireless internet worked great since they have several access points/routers but it does costs $10.00/week extra which is fine with me. I had a long pull-through grass site but some are gravel with no grass. The owners are making improvements and planting trees, bushes and other vegetation. The price quoted is their weekly rate with the usual club discounts. I would stay here again.
