This is a tough place to rate. I liked it because it was close to Mackinaw City, it was super quiet, we had a nice shaded lot, water/electric/cable/Wi-Fi all worked, bathroom and showers were clean and the pool was okay. I had no problem with the staff and the lady at the front desk was very helpful. Saying that, this place needs TLC and could really be better. The playground is horrible - my kids are older and don't need it, but if I had younger kids, I would be very disappointed. Pool was nice, but it could have been cleaner. The public use grounds were a mess and things were falling apart. I would come here again because the things I need are in place and work for me. This place has a lot of potential.
Great campground. If in the area, I would stay here again. My family did not want to leave. This place is in a great location to see the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore Park and to take advantage of all the outdoor activities (or just relax). There are a few quirky things you should know and be ready for--hook-ups are strange (bring extra water hose and electric cord), no cable, coin showers ($1 is about enough). Other than that, this place was super!
This is a great park to see Frankenmuth. The campground is clean, staff is friendly, and it has great facilities. It is super close to everything! Yes, sites can be tight, but they try hard to stagger when possible. We had no one on either side of us. They do have cable on some sites, so be sure to request it if you want it. Wi-Fi was not the best. Great pool and putt-putt course (and I don't even like putt-putt)! Great place for the kiddos! I would stay here again if in the area.
A very nice campground with lots of things to do for the kiddos! The pool, jumping pillow and fishing pond were a hit with my kids. This place was a 15-20 minute drive to Louisville and right on the Bourbon Trail. Bathrooms and facilities were very clean and the staff was amazing and helpful. The only bad thing about the campground is the sites - gravel, uneven, tight. Very quiet and safe. Would use this campground again.
This is the best place to stay if seeing the KY Horse Park. Pros - Amazing sites that are huge and shaded, great pool and recreation areas, super camp store and staff, large and clean bathrooms. You can purchase Horse Park tickets at a discount at the camp store. Cons - lots of scooters and golf carts, no sewer hook ups, terrible laundry facilities, have to pay for Wi-Fi, no cable hook up. I would stay at this place again if in the area.
We thought this was a good campground that allowed us to see all the local attractions and it was reasonably priced (reflects KOA discount). The pool, bathrooms and showers were very clean and the park was very quiet - we were not bothered by the highway. Wi-Fi worked great, but no cable hookup and difficult to get television. Staff was very nice and helpful. My children enjoyed the playground and mini-golf. Campsites are gravel, uneven, and tight in spots. I would use this park again if I were staying in the area.
We camped at this park four years ago: loved it then, loved it now! This place is clean and quiet! It has a great pool and my young kids enjoy it here. We requested a stream lot and got it. The owners and workers are friendly and do everything they can to accommodate you. By far the cleanest and most spacous showers I have ever seen. This campground does not "entertain" (like pancake breakfasts or crafts for kids) because this campground is surrounded by so many other things to do (Gatlinburg, the National Park, zip lining, white water rafting, etc.). This campground is an excellent base for this area and we would use it again!
This place is a perfect way to see NYC inexpensively using the comfort of your camper/motorhome. This place is what it is - a base to see the city. I was concerned with safety before coming because I have two small children, but there was around the clock security checking the grounds. The walk to the PATH to get into the city was only 10 min. and was safe as well. The office is a little laid back. They will find a way to get you a spot and they were nice about giving information - but they are not up for chit-chat. We ended up finding some great spots to visit in Jersey City. I would use this campground again to visit NYC - $60/night was worth it. I did like seeing Lady Liberty from my site (although small).
This is the second time we have come to this campground, and after this visit we will always use it when we make our yearly visit to the Hocking Hills area! This place is clean, quiet, fun and friendly. Some things to consider when visiting is that many sites are uneven and sloped, and it is difficult to get TV reception - BUT who needs TV when there is so much to see in Hocking Hills. We were on site 2 which was nice; it was set away from most of the camp (nice and quiet). I would also try #15 - 20 on another stay. The staff is fantastic! For Geocachers, they have a 7 point Geocache throughout the campground! My kids loved the pool, gem mine and other activities. This has become one of my favorite campgrounds!
This campground is now Sandusky/Bayshore KOA and this is their second season being a part of the KOA affiliation. This campground was very close to Cedar Point and it appears that there are attempts to improve the campground. The staff was very nice and helpful. They did mix up our reservations, but rectified the problem fairly. The campsite we had was very small, but satisfied our needs. There is a busy train track near by and a small airport...it did not bother us, but it is something to consider. They seemed very focused on safety and noise level at night, all of which were handled very well. It does appear that when the weekend rolls in, the "regulars" rule the campground. Nice pool! Nice campground, I would consider returning if I were in the area.
We loved this campground! When we come back to Disney this is definitely where we will stay again! I pretty much agree with all the positives stated in the previous comments, clean, outstanding customer service, excellent amenities, tons of fun activities. We stayed in the 1700 loop which was perfect! The only frustration we had was waiting for transportation at times. Vehicles do come with free parking to all the theme parks if you would rather use your own car. We chose not to pay the $50 per day fee for a golf cart because we used our bikes. Big piece of advice: plan and book in advance for everything (dinner theaters, entertainment, special amenities for your site, golf cart, etc.).
We stayed here for two nights while we toured Savannah. We were not really impressed with this campground and would try a different campground the next time we are in the area. The staff was sort of there, but they were not outwardly friendly or helpful. The campground is a mess and our site was fair at best - small, uneven, very little grass and a tree where our awning went out. Don't be fooled by the advertised river sites. The river is a swamp canal with alligators. The showers were large, but they were the push-timer type with not temperature control. They had a nice pool and a small playground that my kids enjoyed. They campground was very quiet. It was quite a longer drive to Savannah than I would have liked. We travel with two small children.
We stayed here for one night, and as a one night stop over, it was perfect. The staff was very polite and helpful. The campground has a great playground (with an awesome jumping pillow) which my kids loved and they didn't want to leave. The pool was large and clean. The bathrooms were clean and they had good sized showers. The campground seemed to be 50% permanent/extended stays. They only thing we didn't like was that many of the sites were gravel/cinder with very little grass. We were lucky and got one of the few lots that had a pad and grass (lots 134, 135, 136). Sites are very close. We would stay in this campground again. We travel with two small children.
There are 2 KOAs side by side in Williamsburg. From what I could tell, they are run by the same group. The campground was very close to Williamsburg and a variety of stores and restaurants. But the sites were in very bad shape! They were very uneven, full of ruts, and VERY tight. Many people were having difficulties getting in and out. A lot of people had to move cars (and one case a 5th wheel) to let people out! The campground was full and the electric withstood everyone's air conditioning demands - we had 3 straight days of 100+ degrees weather! The pool was very well maintained and a nice relief from the heat. The staff was nice, but did not extend themselves. Showers and bathrooms were old but clean. The playgrounds were horrible - a must for us since we have 2 small children. It was a fair campground and I would look for a different one if I was staying in the area again.
We picked this campground for its convenience to Gatlinburg and The Great Smoky National Park and we just loved it. The facilities were so clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. They had a trolley which ran frequently between the campground and Gatlinburg. They had a fabulous pool, large kiddie pool and a jacuzzi. At night the campground was quiet. The sites were very small, but they were paved with and extended patio area. This is a small campground with a family feel to it. The only complaint we had was the lack of playground equipment for children. We would definitely stay here again! We travel in a travel trailer and have 2 small children.
We come to Deer Creek every Spring, Summer and Fall. It is a well run campground which is continually working on upgrading aspects of the park. They are currently upgrading the electric this winter, which is the only complaint I have ever had. They have a lot of activities in the summer, spacious clean sites, and for the most part it is very quiet. In the summer you are allowed to use the lodge's swimming pool for a small cost.
I really feel sorry for the new owners of this park, because they have a nightmare on their hands! This was the worst campground we have ever been to, and we have been to hundreds of campgrounds. The only things positive I have to say are that the staff was very nice and I can tell they are trying to make improvements. Where to begin - 1. Horrible sites - uneven, dirty, and when it rained, we were a half foot under water! 2. Disgusting bathrooms! 3. Horrible playground. 4. The water slide (which is an extra cost) kept breaking down. 5. Maneuverability was difficult for larger trailers/RVs. 6. They advertised things they do not have. 7. Just an overall messy campground. Unfortunately there are not a lot a great campgrounds surrounding Mammoth Cave NP. I would rather stay in the National Park without water and sewage than stay here again! We travel in a travel trailer and have 2 small children.
