Good Sam discount. Sites are mostly pull-throughs and are tiered up a slope, with railroad ties separating sites. Decent amount of space between sites. Sites are gravel with a firepit at some and a picnic table. Many also have a small shade tree. Full hookups(50amp), also no hookup tent camping. Bathrooms are closed during summer at 7pm and do not open until 8am. On Nov. 1, they started closing at 5pm, closed all night until 8am. Laundry has the same hours as the bathrooms. Nice laundry, just a little expensive. Pets are allowed, but beware, there are a number of loose reservation dogs and cats around. They look to be fed, but many females seem to have puppies or just finished weaning. Very sad. The dogs are very friendly. We ended up taking in a loner that hung around us and just starving for attention. We will get her vaccines done and get her spayed and adopt her out. One less dog to have more puppies. Wi-Fi is free and most times pretty good. Sometimes from around 5-10pm it slowed down or cut off. Very slow Sprint Internet: No service Satellite: Plenty of open sky. Worked on Roam AT&T cell: Worked on Roam Book Exchange:. I think they charged for used books. Guided tours through Monument Valley for a price. Area/Town/Sights: Valley of the Gods, Monument Valley, Navajo life, jewelry. We really enjoyed our time here. The view was magnificent. The campground in late Oct/early Nov. was mostly empty. What a joy to just sit outside surrounded by huge rocks protecting our little area. They have garbage cans conveniently located throughout. They are emptied daily. So much nicer than dumpsters. Also security drives through (too fast) quite a few times per day.

Rate based on 1 wk rate and 3 days Good Sam discount. Nice large sites. Level gravel for RV and grass for our own yard. Pets welcome. Plenty of area to walk them. Wi-Fi is free and works great. Our last day, it gave us trouble, but on the whole great Wi-Fi. Verizon Internet worked well, Verizon cell 5 bars, AT&T cell 4 bars. Book Exchange in Laundry room. Sometimes local musicians come to park to play. Mail delivery is accepted. In the surrounding area there is plenty of hiking if you choose,farm markets, and the Smoke Jumper's visitors center.

This park may allow pets but PETS ARE NOT WELCOME nor is this park pet friendly. The weekly rate on their website states $200.00. Wow! Good deal considering their daily rate this time of year is $41.00. We were charged $261. something. I asked why we were not charged the $200. for the week. "Are there more than 2 people?" "No" "Do you have pets?" "Yes" "How many?" "Two" "The extra charge is for per dog." NOWHERE on the website does it state any extra charges for pets. It does state rate is for 2 people, but doesn't state what the charge is for extra people either. My point is again, NOWHERE on the website does it state any extra charges for pets. I feel my cc should be refunded the pet fee. And what do we get for paying extra for have dogs? A 50'x15' dog run. Other than that, nothing. You can only let your dogs do their business in 3 specific spots in the large RV park. No doggie bags supplied. I was yelled at by a long time resident for letting my dog go along the fence line IN THE WEEDS. Tsk, tsk. That is not a designated area. We will NOT return.

This was just an overnight stop. The bad rating is heavily weighed upon their restrictive dog walk policy. Priced at $35 for a water/electric site, and $42 for a FHU site. This is way too much money for this bare bones park. Accepts Good Sam and Passport America, so we only paid $17.50 which is all it was worth. A friendly atmosphere, but sites are close together and piggy back, although they did try to put rigs in every other site. Only a port-a-potty. Free WiFi which worked well. Lots of rafting on the nearby Yakima River. Dogs allowed, but only allowed to do their business in the enclosed 75' x 35' dog area. There are signs all over this small park stating this is not a dog area. It's a nice area with fields surrounding the park with cattle and very friendly horses. But noooo, your dog can't do its business anywhere but the designated area. Ridiculous. That is the reason for the only low rating. Would be a nice cozy social park to stay at if they would lighten up about the dogs.

We would have rated this a bit higher if they didn't keep filling up the site next to us when there was plenty of room to fill every other site. What could have been a pleasant stay was frustrating with various rigs moving in and out next door. Sites: Decent distance between sites. Gravel, fairly level. Most sites have a grassy area behind the site. Site #109 on water side is nice and Site #110 is really nice across from the water with a large grassy area and next to shade trees. Hook ups: full hook ups. Bathrooms: Didn't look. Laundry: Decent laundry. Four washers/dryers set up in a trailer. The trailer shakes when the washers are spinning. Pets: Pets allowed. Two pets per site. Over 50 pounds need permission, BUT that is not stated on the website, nor the subject brought up when I made reservations. There were plenty of large dogs in the park, so I don't think it is really an issue. WiFi: Free Wi-Fi was TERRIBLE! When it worked, it was decent, but lost service as much as we had service. Verizon Internet: Very, very slow. Same problem as campground Wi-Fi. We kept losing connection. Sprint Internet: No service Verizon cell: 3 bars AT&T cell: No service. Book Exchange: Yes, in office. Activities: Horseshoes, volley ball. Also, fishing and boating. We are right on the canals that lead into Silver Lake. Mail delivery accepted: I don't know. Area/Town/Sights: Not too much around. We drove about 45 minutes to see Mt. St. Helen's volcano. There was an interesting Ranger talk. No dogs allowed.

Most sites are pretty close together. No picnic table, but had a fire ring. The sites furthest from the office have a nice shaded area behind your RV. Full hookups (30amp). Bathrooms I did not check. Sufficient laundry, but run down room in need of paint and some holes patched. 2 washer and 2 dryers were old, but worked fine. Table for folding. $1.50 wash $1.50 dry for 45 minutes. Pet friendly. No rules for pets. A few dogs off leash and wandering the park. They left my dogs alone. Wi-Fi free, but pretty slow. Verizon internet was average, Sprint internet had no service, Verizon cell worked fine, and AT&T cell had no service. Small book exchange in laundry. No planned activities. There is a marina across the street for lots of salmon fishing. Mail delivery is accepted. Cape Flattery is the most NW point of the continental US. Neah Bay has the Makah Museum, and there is fishing. Since there is not much choice, this is one of the better campgrounds. There are also some really nice cabins newly built. They were 85% full the whole week we were here.

Sites: VERY tight. Gravel or dirt/grass. It takes quite a bit of maneuvering to fit into some spaces. Hook ups: FHU Some 30amp some 50amp for higher rate. Bathrooms: Did not check. Laundry: Looks ok, only peeked in. Pets: Very pet friendly. Lots of area to walk dogs. Check your dogs' paws nightly for cheatgrass/foxtails - nasty. WiFi: Free, but very slow. Verizon Internet: Worked well. Sprint Internet: Worked well. Verizon cell: Good reception. AT&T cell: Good reception. Book Exchange: No. Activities: No planned activities at the park, but lots going on in town and of course the marina and water activities. Mail delivery accepted: No. Area/Town/Sights: Almost everything is within walking distance of the park. That is the main reason for my high rating. The sites are pretty terrible and tight, but the view, the convenience of multiple restaurants and shopping is priceless.

Very nice, friendly owners. They truly make you feel wanted and appreciated. Many return RVers set up for the summer and come only on weekends. Sites: All grass sites with gravel roads in park. Sites are a decent size and situations, sort of alternately on angles, so they don't feel so close. Hook ups: Water & electric (30amp). Grey water drain. No sewer, but there is a dump station, and a "honey wagon" comes by weekly to dump your black tank. Bathrooms: Average bathrooms. Clean. Showers are 25 cents for 5 minutes. Laundry: Small clean laundry. Only 2 washers and 2 dryers. Pets: Welcome. Here's another park where they have room to make a small dog park on unused areas. There were plenty of dogs around and plenty of grass to do their business. WiFi: Free. Worked great most of the time, but then would cut off. A couple of minutes later, would be back up and working. Verizon Internet: Our connection was iffy. We don't know if it was our wiring problem or the area coverage. Sprint Internet: Worked fine. Verizon cell: good AT&T cell: good Book Exchange: Yes, book exchange and magazines in the office. Activities: No structured planned activities, although there seems to be a casual gathering for happy hour around 5pm each night at the picnic tables by the office. Bring your own drinks and snacks to share. Mail delivery accepted: Reluctantly yes. Local post office accepts general delivery. Area/Town/Sights: Lots of hiking in the woods and along the seashore. Lighthouses to tour, dog friendly beaches. Little touristy seaside town of Long Beach with plenty of restaurants. 12 miles away is Astoria, OR, which is a fun town to walk through and shop. Lots of ports & marinas for fishing, or watching large ships pass on the Columbia River.

Site# W44 Price reflects weekly discount. They do accept Good Sam. Most sites have nice grassy and shaded spacing between sites. Most of them are difficult to get satellite reception because of many trees. There are two bathroom buildings. Only 2 stalls and 2 showers each. But, they were in great condition and very clean. Showers were fairly private. Laundry: $1.25/wash $1.75 dry. Good amount of regular washers and dryers. Average laundry. There is an area to hang out your clothes outside if you'd like. Pets are welcome. Lots of dogs at sites. Limited to 2 large or 3 small. Very pet friendly. Plenty of areas to walk the dogs. Doggie bags provided. Tengo WiFi free, but slow. Verizon internet worked well. No Sprint internet signal. Verizon cell worked well. No AT&T cell signal. Very small book exchange in the office. DVD rental for $1.00 Activities: I think there is a small playground. Plenty of room to hike. I think mail delivery is accepted. There seems to be 3 camp host couples. The men are very nice and constantly driving through the park to make sure everything is OK. Nice bike trail around Diamond Lake. Dogs are allowed on the bike trail. Swimming, fishing, boating on Diamond Lake; 3 miles up the road is Diamond Lake Lodge where you can rent small motorboats to nice pontoon boats. Crater lake 10 miles away.

The rate cited includes a $10 reservation fee. Large grassy sites, most with shade, yet enough sky for satellite. Site was paved and level. Most sites are easy back in, but there are a few pull-throughs, Site #15 being very nice and facing the large grassy field. Bathrooms: Simple, cinder block, but clean. No showers. No laundry. Very pet friendly! A 2-acre dog park at the entrance of the park and within a 3 minute walk from our campsite. We were at the park at various times and all owners are very aware of their dogs' behavior. Water and dog bags provided. Shade and picnic tables. A county park with free Wi-Fi? Yes! And most of the time it worked very well. Spotty 3G Verizon Internet. Good Sprint Internet. Good Verizon and AT&T voice service. No scheduled activities. The river also within walking distance. Eugene is a nice town with lots of restaurants, big box stores,etc. all within 3-6 miles of the campground. Lots of hiking and biking paths.

Sites are tight, BUT because they have them divided by lattice fence and at this time of the season, covered with ivy, or trailing flowering vines, the sites were beautiful and private. Bathrooms very clean and private shower. Fresh flowers in season by bathroom sinks. Nice little laundry room that was clean. Pet friendly. Two areas for dog business. Owner is hoping for small dog park in 2014. WiFi, free and very good. Very Good Verizon internet reception. Nice book exchange in laundry room Lots to do in the area. Redwood forest, Pacific ocean, lots of hiking. Well kept, quiet park. This park would have gotten a perfect score if the sites were a bit larger.

Definitely a laid back, rustic campground. It felt like we were in someone's back yard. Sites are close together. Very shaded. Some low hanging trees. Wire fencing between sites which makes the sites feel smaller. We had no one on either side of us. We would have felt much more comfortable if there was no fence. Felt closed in with the wire fencing. Grill had garbage in it. Hook ups were only W&E with dump station. We had to wait over an hour to have the electric turned on. Bathrooms are old but clean, Pets are allowed, but not welcome. $2./day per pet charge. Dog waste in our site. No Verizon or Sprint Internet. No Verizon or AT&T signal. Nice swimming pond, basketball court, and communal large campfire but full of garbage. Would not come back.

Sites are all level pull-throughs. Average space between sites. Some with new trees. Driveway is gravel. Where the picnic table is located is pea gravel. Full hookups and options for just water and electric for lower pricing. Small laundry with 3 or 4 machines each, but very clean. Pets are welcome. There are two decent sized dog parks. Free Wi-Fi, worked fine. Verizon Internet worked great. No Sprint Internet. Verizon phone: 5 bars. AT&T phone: 4 bars. Book exchange. No activities. The RV park states that the Meteor Crater tourist trap gives a discount to guests at the RV park. $2.00 discount. Not impressed. I think buy one/get one would have been better. The park is kept very clean and nicely landscaped. Even though the roads are gravel, they are sprayed often to keep the dust down.

If there was sewer, this would be a perfect rating. Very quiet while we were here. Even during prime season, when full, I think it would still be an enjoyable stay because the sites are well separated. Beautiful view of the Arkansas River. Boat ramp very close. Playgrounds, pavilions, water fountains. Whether on the river or not, they are all great sites. Sites: Large sites, plenty of grass, lots of room between sites. Many river front sites. Hook ups: W & E (50amp) No sewer, but dump stations close. Bathrooms: Tiled and clean. Laundry: None. Pets: Pet friendly. Lots of areas for walking the dogs. Wifi: None. Verizon internet: worked well. Pretty fast Sprint internet: Good Verizon phone: Good AT&T phone: Good Book exchange: No Mail delivery. No Area/Town/Sights: Nice part of the country, but not much sightseeing. Civil rights museum, Clinton museum. A lot of restaurants and food stores close by.

Sites: Decent size, all with a small grass area. Laundry: Free, yes free with high efficiency multiple machines and clean! Pets: welcome, with plenty of grass area and paths to walk them. Wifi: Free, and pretty fast. Verizon internet: Good Verizon phone: Good AT&T phone: Good Book exchange: Small unofficial exchange in the laundry. Mail dlvy: Yes. Area/Town/Sights: W. Memphis is a poor town and not safe. Slums. Best to stay on the highways 40 & 55 to get to shopping in W. Memphis. Memphis is a larger town, with difficult parking, but a lot of restaurants and of course, Graceland. Other info: Sites 1-38 are mainly long term and under trees. Sites 40-76 have some shade. Sites 80-100 are "5th Wheel" sites. These are situated so your back window will have a great view of the Mississippi River. No trees at all in this section. Site 100 gave us plenty of grass area for our dogs.

Sites: Mostly back ins. Decent amount of space between sights. Sites along the river have a large grassy area. Pets: Welcome, plenty of places to walk them. Wifi: none. Verizon internet: Very good Sprint internet: No signal Verizon phone: Very Good AT&T phone: Good Book exchange: Mail delivery: No. Area/Town/Sights: A little convenience store and propane about 4 miles away. Town of Jefferson is about 14 miles away. This town is well worth the drive. Lots of history, some good casual restaurants, and antiques. Other notes: This is the cleanest fire pit we've encountered! And we are loaded with firewood! Lots of fishing for crappie here. So there are lots of smelly dead things for our dogs to find.

This park received good reviews from RV Park Reviews, but I'm disappointed. Very crowded and closely spaced sites. Plus, there seems to be no order to the sites. The roads curve, some sites at right angles to each other so the back window of your 5th wheel is looking into the side window of another. But, the staff and residents are very nice. Many residents are snowbirds and have been coming here for so many years. We do not rate higher for organized activities. But if that is what you like, then you would like this park. They have a recreation room with musical performances, jam sessions and pot lucks. There is an "Oasis" room which just seems to be a public living room with TV, coffee, sofas, etc. Heated pool and hot tub. Bocce Ball, miniature golf, (but that is not kept up: full of debris), craft class, quilt & sewing get togethers, aerobics, hikes to geo-cache. Most sites very close together. Our site was one of the nicer ones. A permanent structure on one side, natural fence behind and our truck in front made for a fairly private site & spacious site. (#52) There are several laundry buildings throughout park. The one I used felt like I was in a basement, but units seemed clean. Laundry line outside to hang clothes to dry if preferred. Pets are welcome: 2 dog limit. 2 dog parks, 1 for small and 1 for large. Dog park is enough for dogs to get a decent run and play. No waste bags provided. Water hose available. Outdoor dog wash. Wifi is Free with several connections throughout park. Worked decent. Verizon internet: worked great, good Verizon phone: 5 bars. AT&T phone: 4 bars. There is a book exchange. Nice building with books sorted nicely by author alphabetically. Small selection of DVD movies. Chairs to sit and read. There is Mail Delivery. Area/Town/Sights are about 10 miles from the main shopping, and 3 miles from small convenience store. Plenty of things to do in downtown Tucson. Drive 200 feet past Desert Trails to Justin Diamond's RV Park. No frills, but still FHU, larger sites, vegetation for a natural fence between sites, and cheaper.

Sites: Nicely spaced. Red Hawk loop seems a little larger spaces. Site #56 is a pull through by itself. HOOK UPS: Water & Electric only. Dump station at entrance Bathrooms: OK. Showers seemed aging.

Ranger programs on weekends. Mail delivery: no. Area/Town/Sights: Cottonwood is becoming well known as the cheaper, more down to earth Sedona. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. Some Indian ruins. Lots of wine tasting shops.

Sites are gravel and not level. Close, but enough space to let our dog out on a 15 foot tether. Sights at the end of rows are more spacious with shade. Some sites are open, others have shade. Our site had a beautiful Utah Juniper tree for shade. Bathrooms has a toilets-no showers. Did not check for cleanliness-did not use. There is a laundry. No pets allowed. Plenty of area to walk the dogs. Many paved walking paths and woods are cleared so easy to walk through. Dogs are not allowed on shuttle buses nor on many unpaved trails into the Canyon. There is a day kennel if needed. Wifi- no. Verizon internet: Worked very well. Sprint internet: No service Verizon phone: good AT&T phone: No service Book exchange: No Activities: Hiking the Grand Canyon. Free shuttle bus within walking distance. Runs all day every 15 minutes. Mail Delivery: No, but there is a US Post Office in the Park at Market Plaza. Other comments: We saw huge Mule Deer almost daily in the RV park. On two occasions we saw Elk just grazing in the RV sites. Very cool experience. Free shuttle bus to other areas of the South Rim available right outside the campground (walking distance). Market plaza is maybe 3/4 to 1 mile from campground with a well stocked, but premium priced grocery, the US Post Office, a cafeteria, Chase bank, and a gift shop with hiking equipment available for rental or purchase.

Rate is with 15% SKP discount. This park is conveniently right off I-40 behind a Pilot truck stop. Iron Skillet and Dunkin Donuts within walking distance. Even though we were close to the highway, we were higher up and therefore never heard the trucks nor traffic. Very clean park. Sites: Decent sized, most with a nice shade tree. Pea gravel which was kept refreshed. Bathrooms: Clean, but a little bit of a walk from RV. Laundry: Great laundry. I should have done my wash there. Many units, 2 sitting tables with magazines, large table for folding clothes. Pets: Welcome. Two small dog parks. Large enough for a little running and enough room for play. Wifi: Worked well. Verizon internet: Excellent Sprint internet: Very Good Verizon phone: Very good AT&T phone: Very Good Book exchange: Activities: Not much. Horseshoes. Area/Town/Sights: Not much to do around here. The town of Kingman is 15 miles away and that is where the stores, restaurants are located.

This is a popular fishing campground. Upon arrival, it was packed with a family reunion. Kids running around, a couple of loose dogs came to investigate without the owners bothering to call them back. We backed up to another RV who had 2 little yappy dogs in an x-pen growling and yapping at our dogs. Grrr, right back at you. Because of this "welcome," I had a slanted opinion of this park. Once the majority of the families left by the next day, it was a quiet park. Some sites are right on the babbling brook, which was really nice. When we checked in the manager was very welcoming and full of info of things to do in the area. Sites: Too close together for my taste. Gravel & wood chip sites. Picnic table & fire ring. Did not check the bathrooms. You are given a key for the bathroom/showers if you plan to use. No laundry. Pets are welcome. Very lax in their rules. A couple of loose dogs owned by residents in homes up the hill. Dogs were friendly and I didn't see waste around. So the dogs weren't really a problem. No WiFi. Verizon signal was Excellent. There was a small book exchange in the office. Activities: fishing, fishing, and more fishing. Fish cleaning station provided. Beautiful area. We missed Yosemite because it was too early for the road to be open (early May). But there are many lakes, hiking, skiing. Mammoth Lakes is a ski town, so there are plenty of restaurants and shopping. Resort prices though. Decent little campground, but crowded on the weekends.

The lettered (instead of numbered) sites at Allegro Circle (North end) are very close together. Just enough room for a picnic table. The sites South of Good Sam Highway have some grassy areas and larger sites, but they are mainly reserved for Carefree Club Members. The center, pull through sites are the nicest. But good luck getting one of them. Has full hook ups and good water pressure The bathrooms are tiled, clean. There are 8 washers and dryers in the clean laundry. Park is pet friendly, in that many sites have dogs, but there is not much space for dogs to relieve themselves in the park unless you let them go on the sites. (That is what most people do.) Behind the park is a nice public walking/biking paved path. But it is open only during daylight hours. Free WiFi is Tengo internet and worked great. Verizon internet worked well. Good connection with Verizon phone. Very Good connection with AT&T phone. There is a book exchange in a nice cozy room with couch and shelves of books, videos, music CD's. For things to do, there is the River Walk, the Alamo, Missions, and lots of restaurants. There is a nice game room with air hockey, pool table, puzzles. Also a small gym with treadmills, etc. Although the sites are very close and the park is in a not so great area of town, the benefits of close proximity to buses to San Antonio and the friendly residents makes for a pleasant stay.

Rate reflects Passport America, but even without it, the weekly rate is only $100. I am not a SW kind of person. I like green & lakes, but this place is close to paradise in the winter. Located in a valley with beautiful views of all the different surrounding peaks. Staff is wonderful, permanent residents are very friendly and welcoming. After only two days, we felt like a part of the RV park family. We were originally going to stay for a week and extended it to 2 weeks. Lots of open range trails for ATV's. I really love it here. Has neat gravel sites, but just a little too close for my liking. Full Hook Ups. Bathrooms are clean. The laundry is clean and spacious, with nice hand painted garden mural on walls. Park is very pet friendly. Park is surrounded by open range where you can let your dogs loose if you'd like. On leash in park. WiFi is available for $2./day. Connection isn't very good, but better than nothing. We could not get internet with our Verizon service. No Verizon internet. No Sprint internet. No bars on either the Verizon or AT&T phones. There is a book exchange in a large, library type room. All categorized. Mail delivery accepted

I'm not reporting a full review since we were just there overnight. FHU, pets allowed. The dog run in the brochure has been taken down. I don't know why, since they have the space. This used to be KOA. I don't think the new owners are really doing the upkeep that should be done at the park. There are quite a few permanent residents. Some have nice lots, others are questionable. No landscaping at all. A very ugly park. The highlight of this park is the restaurant on site. What a pleasant surprise!

Riverside site #418 was $27/day with Good Sam discount. Sites are fairly close together, with a grassy area and at least 1 shade tree. Mostly back in, some with a river view. Has full hook ups. Didn't look at the bathrooms. Laundry was clean with 4 washers/dryers with at least 2 laundry buildings. Pets are welcome. Many areas to walk the dogs with waste bags and garbage cans available. Wi-Fi is free. Great connection and fast. Verizon, Sprint internet was good. Verizon, AT&T phone was good. No book exchange. Tourist town. Lots of good and bad restaurants, lots of entertainment. Great Smoky Mountain trails fairly close. This is a huge park with 400 sites. Most are back in. The river view isn't really worth it because it is mainly blocked by trees. But the river side sites have a lot of open grassy area behind the site. We were here in the winter, so the park looked like a parking lot with grass patches. But in the summer, this place is probably beautiful. The majority of the sites have TWO shade trees, 1 in front and 1 in back. Cement patio with picnic table. Fire ring. Some sites all cement, but the crushed gravel sites seem level and clean also. Great park for rallys. There is a large pavilion with picnic tables and also a conference center. If in the area again, I would return. But there seems to be a few other decent campgrounds in area further away from the highway. This campground is "secluded" in between two highways, but is not noisy.

Would have rated higher if had water hookup. Sites: Cement pads, grass sites with picnic table, shade trees, spacious. Hook Ups: 50amp only. Dump station in park. Bathrooms dated, but clean. Verizon internet: OK, somewhat slow, but worked consistently. Sprint internet: Good connection, but very slow. Verizon phone: 5 bars. AT&T phone: 4 bars. Book exchange: None. Beautiful park. The RV section is literally on a loop at the end of the park. If you get a site on the inside of the loop, you have no one behind you. Lots of turkeys walking around the park, rabbits and squirrels. There is a paved walk/bike path within walking distance of the park. It is about 6 miles long, but no shade. Lots of areas to walk throughout the park. We have been finding a tick or 2 (dog ticks, not deer ticks) on all of us per day.

Disgusting park. Can't really rate this RV park. We were lucky to get a site since we didn't arrive until 4pm and they only had 2 sites left. Staff is nice. Sites: Tight together, short, buddy sites (shared utility post). Hook Ups: FHU Pets: Policy states must be under 25#'s, but they let our 60# dogs in without question. Small (10'x20'), dirty fenced in pet walk area. No waste bags supplied, but they do supply a heavy metal shovel and a bent up rake to scoop. A sign is posted that dogs should be on leash. Huh? In a fenced in area? I'll be glad to leave tomorrow. That is the only place they want dogs to do their business. The grassy areas along the edge of the park are for tenting. They try to use every inch for income. These tent areas are 10'x10' areas with a grill along the fence line. Wi-Fi was free, but they did not offer us the code, and we didn't bother since it was only overnight. Verizon Internet was very slow, sometimes timing out. No signal at all with Sprint internet. Dump station was not working. Gave it a 1 instead of 0 because staff was nice and hookups worked. I was very happy to leave this place. I couldn't take this more than one night. I'd rather boondock in a parking lot than stay here.

Lovely, lovely park! WE HAVE GRASS! We had to take off our shoes and wiggle our toes in it! This park has beautiful lawns. The sites are really crammed together, with some sites having no parking for vehicle. They have a separate area to park your vehicle. Our site had a "car pad." Very tight fitting our dually in the spot, but it worked. There is a 10'x10' patch of grass with a picnic table at every site. New trees, so not much shade, but the trees also don't get in the way of rigs and slide outs. We happened to be at the end of a street, so our lawn is much larger. We are loving it! Decided to stay an extra week and take advantage of our "yard." There are full hook ups, swimming pool, shuffle board, and basketball. Great paved bicycle path right outside the park. This path goes on for 40 miles! It is dog friendly, with a walking path around the park and a couple of spots with dog waste bags supplied. The folks are quiet at this campground, but we do hear some traffic noise. But with the beautiful lawn, landscaping and privacy fencing, it's easy to block the noise out. They have great bathrooms/showers, not that we used them. They are each a private unisex room with toilet, sink, and shower, just like "home." There is a nice laundry room. Everything is immaculate. A very cool "family room" is at the office, with large leather sofas, a fire place, pool table, large TV and DVD player, and small library. Free Wi-Fi works great. I would return here in a heartbeat!

We only stayed here overnight which was fine. It is a small park with gravel sites close together and shared electric pedestal. Surprisingly, our site was level. All pull through sites. Nothing fancy about this park. Fine for overnight or a few days. Unfortunately, our electric kept spiking and shutting off, so that was a major negative. Nice tent camping area with shade and grass. No one was camping, so this is where we walked our dogs. The park also is a mobile home park which wasn't a problem. There is an "aviary" on site. Basically, it looks like there are chickens and a turkey, which was kind of fun to see them strutting around and the turkey gobbling. Lots of "domestic" rabbits running around. They seemed healthy and happy, but drove our Irish Setter nuts! Over all, we'd stay here for a couple of days if needed, but check the electric first. It was kind of depressing, because right next door you see the OLD mobile homes, with plywood add ons, etc. You know these folks don't have much.

The sites are actually pretty level, consisting of gravel with grass in between. All are pull-through. Unfortunately, the park is right next to State Hwy. 63. I mean literally right next to this major highway with trucks flying by at 70 mph. No sound barrier at all. No view, well, of course there is a view, just not a nice view. There are pvc picnic tables at some sites. Other sites have wooden conversion seat/picnic tables. They convert from a bench with a back, then flip the back over and it turns into 1/2 a picnic table. Put two together and makes a full picnic table. Kind of nice. We were wondering where we were going to go to take the dogs for exercise. A little walk around the 26 site park is fine for potty, but not enough to keep one 1 yr old Irish Setter satisfied. Even the little stream is almost stagnant. There was a 20 foot long piece of plastic sheeting hanging over a log and laying in the stream. Not a pretty sight. The one saving grace for this place is that behind this RV park is an equine camp. If you want to tent camp, then that may be a nice park. There are about 15 grassy/dried leaves sites with water & electric and each site has a little horse corral to keep your horse safe overnight. The trails in the woods behind the campground are actually quite nice. This park is fine for overnight and the manager is very nice, but for a vacation spot? No way.
