This park is 10 miles from Old Town situated on the Swanee River. They have a mix of sites with live oaks all over. The roads are hard packed sand as are the sites. We arrived early afternoon to visit Manatee Springs State Park across the river. The campground rents pontoon boats in case you don't want to drive all the way around to the state park via Old Town. We rented a pontoon, headed up river to the park, docked at the state park and swam in the 72 degree springs. The cable tv was decent with about 20 channels, the hosts were friendly, and didn't hear about any of the rules the previous reviewer mentioned. I also didn't see but a few cabins, so I'm not sure what the reviewer was referring to about all the park models and long-term residents. Very nice showers and restrooms, all tile. The laundry was big and airy I think there were about 7 each of washers and dryers. A nice park, that served its purpose for us. A nice stop on the way home from Orlando. We would definitely come back!

Great COE Campground on the Tombigbee River. All 50 amp sites, some with sewer and some without. Great paved roads for cycling.

This park had a nice swimming pool, and putt-putt golf course. The playground was ok, but not anything special. The laundry wasn't big enough, we had to wait quite a while for a free washer / dryer. The sites were gravel, but adequate. I felt like I was being gouged by KOA again as the price was really high for the area. Seemed to be lots of permanent residents in the park.

Great park, easy to get to from I-10. We stayed there in 09' on our trip to Florida, and then again this summer. You can sure tell that the owners have been putting many hard hours into the park. It's far enough from I-10 that you don't hear any road noise. There's a small pond for fishing with a beach on one side. The WiFi signal was strong and internet speed was fast. We will definitely stay there again, possibly in a few weeks on our way home.

It is a great campground, but not really worth the $140/night. It is very hard to back into some of the sites. The Electric and cable hookup is at the very rear of site, and water is at the front. About half the campground was empty, but the amusement parks were still packed. There is a great pool with water slide and kids waterworks area. Cable internet is available for $9.95 per night, cable modems in registration office -- very high speed! I'm sure we will be back!!

This is a nice park within a mile or so of downtown Bayfield. There's a swimming beach a few miles down the road to the south, and a nice city park beach a ferry ride away on Madeline Island. This is a great base camp for exploring the apostle islands, kayaking to see the caves, and relax around a campfire. The park host makes rounds every afternoon selling firewood bundles, kept the bathrooms clean, and was friendly. We didn't have any trouble getting our 42' through the park and there seemed to be plenty of spaces that would accommodate us. I like the spots on the upper level with the view of lake superior, but the lower sites tucked into the woods were nice too.

Nice campground with huge pull-through sites that can easily handle any size BIG RIG. There was a gravel road going to the park for the last 1/2 mile or so, but I didn't think it was that bad. They do have a big wash bay in case you want to wash your motorhome or toad. I would stay here again if in the area. It's close to town and not far out of the way if your are on the way to Alaska. I found the staff very hospitable, they even called around town to locate a place for me to get an item I needed. We weren't even given a list of rules, so I'm not sure what's up with the first review of the place.

This park has a great location in Drumheller close to everything, it has plenty of room for big rigs, new showers and restrooms, and great views of the Hoo Doo's. We camped here in 2003 and returned here in 2008. It has mini-golf and a playground for the kids, and it's a short walk down to the water park and the huge dinosaur you can go up inside. Not many of the sites are 50 amp, we had to settle for 30 amp given that we showed up during the middle of a holiday weekend in Canada and the park was full. We were lucking in that someone pulled out of a full-hookup site a day early. The interior roads are gravel as well as the sites, but they do have a concrete patio area with a pick nick table, and grass between the sites. This is the badlands, so it's somewhat desert like and can be dusty at times. Internet network hookups were available in the office for $3.00/hr. We would stay here again if in the area, and recommend this park to anyone visiting Drumheller. The Royal Tyrrell Museum is about 3 miles up the road, and a must see for anyone traveling through the area!

The campground was nice, with long pull-troughs, good WiFi, and easy to get into. My kids give this playground a solid 10, it has playhouses all over it, and tunnels between some of them. My wife didn't like the place because much of it seem to be permanent residents and a large mobile home area as well. The campground was convenient to all kinds of stores, Target, Best Buy, Theaters, etc... It did have very ugly mini-storage units right in the middle of the campground.

I had to visit this campground after reading so many good reviews about it on here. I have to say that I wasn't let down. They have nice big sites, and the sites are laid out so that even the treed sites are satellite friendly. We only stopped in for the night on our way to Glacier National Park, but we would make this our choice on our next visit to Missoula. They were upgrading the WiFi the day we pulled in and the new system was live that night with a strong fast signal.

Very nice park, no hookups but they do have a dump station and a place to fill you freshwater tank. Easy access with our 42' MH towing. The cave tour was nice, and was easy for our 5 & 8 year old kids. There is a park ranger that lives on-site, but the park only had about 3 other campers when the night we stopped in. Very nice, new playground that my kids really liked. We had a site with a great view of the playground.

This campground has great location, and was easy to get into with our 42' MH towing. Nice big pull-through sites. Very close to Yellowstone National Park. Very knowledgeable, friendly, hard-working owners. They were able to direct us to the best places in the park to view wildlife and other neat things to see and do. They were upgrading the park the whole time were were there, adding more grass and improving the site. Free miniature golf was a hit with the kids.

Very nice KOA, also first KOA. When we were there you could walk on the rocky riverbed. We had one of their super-site pull-through site which include a fireplace, swing and patio table with chairs and umbrella. WiFi was solid, but we were adjacent to the office. Office was staffed were very young but appeared to know what they were doing. The playground was OK; they had miniature golf. Also had a pool that wasn't open yet. We would stay there again if in the area.

Nicest campground around the battlefield. We were also checked in by work campers, and later met the owner when he was tending to his horses. He let one of our kids sit on one of the horses for a picture, and was very hospitable. A little road noise with the windows open for the night, but tolerable. Solid fast Wi-Fi. Not much playground wise, except tether ball. The laundry had a code lock so it was available all night if you need to get caught up.

Nice KOA at the base of Devils Tower, gravel interior roads and gravel/grass sites. This is the place if you want hookups and a view of Devils Tower and the red hills around the tower. We had fun exploring campground as well as Devils Tower! Lot's of deer and rabbits running around the campground. The playground was OK, and it looked like they had acquired a play structure from a fast food restaurant that wasn't assembled yet. The only downside is the price, I've noticed that on this trip, KOA's run about $8-$10 higher than similar facilities in the same area. There is a NPS campground inside the park, that we drove through in the motorhome, but no hookups.

We stayed on a marketing stay, $39.95 for 3 nights. Looked like a very nice place, and memberships didn't seem to be very expensive. You are obligated to a sales presentation / tour of the facilities, but it was quick and easy. Super nice playground, several pools, and hot tubs. They also had sports courts and a tennis court, all paved roads, and concrete sites with patio. W-iFi was good most of the time, and seemed very fast.

Nice stop, no noise, most hookups seemed to be on the wrong side. Several sites overlooking the river, and looked like a good place to fish too. The kids liked the playground and we would stop there again if in the area.

Nice city park along the Missouri River. Excellent FAST Wi-Fi. Far from the interstate so no noise. The playground was also very nice, as it was a city park. Actually, they had 2 playgrounds, and my kids give the playground a solid 10! Not far from tons of shops, Wal-Mart, Target, etc... if you need to restock. You do have to cross a toll bridge when taking the most direct route. It was high; $3 per axle, so $15 for my 3 axle motorhome towing a 2 axle car. The Confederation Bridge to PEI wasn't even that much, as they only charge one way in PEI, these guys get you coming and going! You can get to the campground without crossing the toll bridge, but the bridge was the most direct route and avoided allot of red lights. With diesel at $4.30/gallon, hard to tell which way would be cheaper!

This was a nice park, far enough from the interstate that there was no noise. The free Wi-Fi worked good, but was satellite based. The owners were nice hard-working people, and you could tell that they took pride in their campground. No problems navigating my 42' motorhome down the roads leading to the campground and through the campground itself. Paved roads leading to the campground, but the interior roads were gravel as well as the sites. No dust when we were there though. There was a pond on-site for fishing.

In an area with few campgrounds this is a great campground. We stayed here 3 years ago, then again today. It was a little strange to find a campground / bar combination, but they have a nice place. Great playground, driving range, horseshoes, both a shaded area for people that like to be in the woods, and an open area for others like me that want their satellite to work. I was looking for this place for miles today, and glad I found it again. We would stay here again if in this area again.

It's been 4 years since the last review, and this place hasn't changed from the previous reviewer's review. Same run down playground, small kid-unfriendly pool, grumpy staff, and extra fees if you are going to run your A/C. On top of all that we had very low voltage, our power protection system kept disconneting us. I finally turned on the generator to run the A/C until the coach got cool. We were able to get our 42' BigRig in there, but I wouldn't call it big-rig friendly either. Oddly there were no signs directing you to this KOA like most have. It was a little too treed and rustic for us too, no satellite, no wifi, no cable, and we are never going there again! I also marked it as having no pull-thru sites. As the people at the dest told me they didn't have any, but I saw 1 site that some might be able to pull-thru.

This KOA is in the middle of Gros Morne National Park. A beautiful setting that words can't describe. The park has a great playground with the lake across from the playground. Paddle boats and canoes are available for playing on the lake. The camp store had local handcrafts made by the owners family, and the owners (a young couple) have been living in the area all their life. We plan to stay here again on our way back down the western coast.

Nice park, easy to get into, nice large sites. Satellite internet works for us here, but not for our neighbors.

Not what you would expect from a state park, if all state parks were this nice, there would be no need for private parks! Great weather, great beaches, great experiences! We will be back!

Nice park with great ocean views of Passamaquoddy Bay. Roads are gravel, and some sites are grass and others all gravel. Nice playground for the kids. Only a few block from downtown area. I saw a few 45' rigs in the park, so it can handle any size rig. The tent area is in a wooded area in the back. Office staff was very friendly. They do charge for their WiFi, but the price was reasonable, $1. 75 for 20 minutes for $5. 95 for a day. They had rates for longer than a day, but I didn't get them. Good strong WiFi signal all over the park. Many open sites for satellite tv or satellite internet. (Most sites aren't shaded.) We would stay here again!

Nice park with great views. Great park to stay in while visiting Acadia National Park. Kayak rental on-site as well as an Arcade and very nice playground for the kids. Many of the site are wide open so both satellite TV and Satellite internet work well. I see that previous reviews listed the park having WiFi, but I don't recall seeing a WiFi signal at my site. I did see an Internet booth near the office. (Maybe the WiFi works up there. ) Staff was always friendly and helpful, some paved roads and some gravel. The sites were gravel and grass. We would stay here again!

Great COE campground on the Tombigbee river. Boat launch available from campground. This is our favorite place to camp and play on the river. Typically staffed by workcampers, and they have always been nice. The gate locks at 10pm, after that you can get out but not in. Paved roads throuhout, and concrete sites (normal COE).

If you are going to the space center, you can't find a better campground. We've stayed here a number of times. The trees are a little low, but I didn't have any trouble with my 12.6' tall MH. Our kids love this place.
