This is a very appealing park in many ways; the sites are plenty large and level, lots of grassy areas for our dog to roll around in, your choice of shaded, woodsy areas or open fields if you want to assure satellite reception. There are many attractions for kids, including a very nice pool, playground equipment, and what looked like a huge, pneumatic trampoline that got a lot of play from the youngun's. The bathroom facilities are clean, but pretty ugly in terms of decor and finish. The lady running the place when we checked in was friendly and helpful to a fault, and was very kind to our dog. We would definitely stay here again next time we're in the area.

We selected this campground principally because of its location on a hill top in close proximity to Oneonta. The trip up the hill was a little rough, and our toad was coated with dust at its completion, but the ride was worth it. The view from the CG is lovely, and the site itself is remarkably nice. There is a very nice pool, with an adjacent kiddy play area, a fishing pond, a pavilion for meetings, and quite a few cabins for non-RVers. The public facilities are maintained fastidiously, and the management is extremely friendly and helpful. It's clear that they are interested in developing a first rate campground. We stayed for four nights, over the Fourth of July. We were told by the owners that Good Sam had refused to list them in their Directory, ostensibly because of insufficient facilities for children. We've been to lots of RV Campgrounds listed in their directory that had far less in the way of kiddy stuff. We'll be writing to Good Sam to challenge their failure to list this fine facility.

We've encountered a number of RV Parks that have adopted the name "Resort" without any upgrade of their facilities to justify such a classification. You can't say that about this place; if there is such a thing as an RV Camping Resort, this place defines it. It really has it all, something for everyone in the family, a great place for kids, some very good separate facilities for adults, and obvious good management of the operation. We got exactly what we were looking for, a secluded pull-through in a quiet part of the park, and enjoyed it thoroughly. Can't knock this place; would give it a 10 rating, but we reserve that for places like Seven Feathers in Canyonville, OR that have achieved absolute perfection in RV park design and operation.

It's surprising that there haven't been any reviews of this park submitted to date. It seems to be a very popular family oriented park near Augusta, drawing a substantial number of patrons, at least on the weekend we were there. It is situated on a lovely lake, with lots of boating and canoeing potential. The location is very attractive, though the park seems to be not as well maintained as it should be. The road into the place is loaded with potholes, the interior gravel roads need more gravel, and our site was not provided with water, as it was supposed to have. The restrooms, though clean enough, were in need of an upgrade. But who are we to complain? It's obvious that a lot of people really like this place, and, for the money, it's probably not a bad deal!

Thanks to RV Park Reviews, we've found another high quality campground! We can say that the remarks of other recent reviewers are quite accurate in their praise of this place. The management is outstanding in their upkeep of the sites and public areas, and in terms of friendliness and accommodation. The location is excellent for visitors to Bangor, Old Town, and even Bar Harbor. Our site was large and grassy, getting a paws up from our furry companion, and the walking areas are spacious and well tended. Restrooms and showers are scrupulously clean. The nearby restaurant serves really good food at reasonable prices; you should try at least one meal there. We stayed here for a week, and enjoyed every moment. Thanks again, RV Park Reviews!

Don't understand why there have been so few reviews of this charming park. We spent three nights here, enjoying every minute. Yeah, it's an older park, no Wi-Fi, no cable TV, and forget about satellite in this woodsy setting. We think this contributed to our feeling of peacefulness here. The place is well off the highway, with little encroaching noise, a lovely brook runs along the edge of the park, a pond with a gushing fountain is provided, along with a beach and other recreational features. Didn't see any deer, but chipmunks and squirrels were abundant. It's nothing fancy, and kind of dated, but very peaceful and pleasant. And the management is friendly and accommodating,to boot. We enjoyed our stay here, and would certainly come back if we were in the area.

You'd be hard pressed to find a cleaner, better organized RV Park than this one. Everything is spic and span, manicured, planted and tended. A very attractive place, set next to a very scenic marshland, though the actual park is very woodsy. No chance for satellite, but cable is excellent. The place is obviously well managed, with a lot of eye toward detail. Only complaints are a little tightness in the sites, and some difficulty in maneuvering our rig (38') around some of the curves. Overall, a very pleasant stay.

This is our second time here, and we like it mostly because it is near the home of the friends we visit in the area. The park is really big, and most of the sites are occupied by weekenders who have trailers and fivers located on them. Very quiet here during the week, much more activity on the weekend. The transient sites are large enough to accommodate big rigs, and have 50 amp power, though no sewer hookups. Several dump stations are located throughout the park. The park is pet friendly, and the woodsy setting provides great dog walking opportunities; my dog loved it! Rest rooms are convenient and clean, though we balked at the pay-by-the-minute showers, using our friends' home instead. The owners are pleasant and helpful. The interior roads could use some work. Overall, we found it to be a relaxing place to hang out, and we stayed for a couple of weeks.

After reading all of the reviews that have been generated by this Park, all I can say is, wow, we do have different views of the same place. All I can do is offer ours. Yes, it is a little hard to get to, requiring meandering down some country roads that are actually quite pleasant. Yes there are a lot of wet and muddy spots in the Park, particularly in the Springtime when the creek (more like a river) is high and ground is still running off from the recent rains. And, yes, some of the facilities, like the restrooms and showers, are rather dated and need improvements, which it looks like they are getting. The place ain't perfect. But I'd like to offer an award of some kind to the person who is responsible for the plantings throughout this Park, where every square inch of ground that isn't need for another use is sprouting beautiful flowers, leafy hosts and other attractive plants, veggies like lettuce and tomatoes, all creating a wonderland of beautiful gardens. It is, by far, the most beautiful display of practical and ornamental horticulture that we've ever seen in an RV Park. Even if you don't camp here, it's worth the trip to see it. On the basics, we found our utilities to be entirely functional and adequate, our site level, the office and support personnel very friendly and helpful, and the setting, alongside a major creek, very lovely. The place is great for dog walking, with an excellent K9 Korral (bathroom) available, and nice trails that our dog really enjoyed. We really enjoyed this campground, and stayed an extra day to savor it's beauty. Hope you like it, too.

We chose this park solely due to it's location in relation to our trip, and were pleasantly surprised at what a great place it was. We were personally guided into our space, which was fully functional with regard to utilities. The dog park was spacious and well appointed. The grounds were neat and well attended. Restrooms and showers were clean and sported well-chosen decor. There was a rally going on there at the time, and we envied the people attending, knowing that they would get a lot of enjoyment from the place. Wish there were more independent campgrounds that cared about their customers as this one does.

It might be a little difficult to write a good, objective review of an RV Park when most of the time you spent there was during a severe sandstorm, but I'll give it a try. Our site at the end of a row was of ample size and fairly level. The utilities were quite good, and well situated. The surface of the park is, of course, sand. When the wind isn't blowing, this doesn't cause much of a problem. When the wind is cranking up 50 knots and more, you'll find sand in everything. The park area itself is somewhat protected by the bluffs (very picturesque) surrounding the site, but there's a notch in one end, and we were right next to it. The coach was rocking like we were at sea. The rest rooms and showers were impeccable, and the store was well stocked. It's obvious that the management takes its job seriously, and do a good job of keeping the place well maintained. And, I should point out, it's the only game in town!

From what we could see, this park is the class act of the Moab RV Park collection. Noteworthy to us (and our dog) there is a good sized strip of grass next to each site, providing a pleasant area to plant our chairs on for some relaxing in the afternoon. The park provides an escort to your site to help you get situated easily. Rest rooms and showers are exemplary. The location is perfect for visiting the nearby National Parks and the town of Moab, and a Colorado River tour boat operator is right next door. The construction of a new bridge across the river has made access to the park a little less easy than it might otherwise be, and the marking for the exit needs improvement. All in all, a very good experience at a reasonable price.

It's always a pleasure to encounter an RV Park that is virtually faultless. We can usually find something annoying to use in knocking a facility. Not at Montrose RV Resort. The management is friendly and helpful, the grounds and sites are meticulously maintained, the utilities are excellent, and the restrooms are spotless. The laundry room is equipped with plenty of washer/dryer combos, and there is a pet walk where you can let your dog off leash. Every site has an expanse of grass and a mature tree, along with a picnic table. The town of Montrose itself rates very high with us. In a valley just north of the San Juan Mountains, it boasts an attractive and thriving downtown area, plus a commercial corridor on the south end of town with supermarkets and shopping centers. From here you can easily tour in your toad to all the local points of interest, of which there are many. I should note that we only give scores of 10 to facilities that are among the most outstanding in the country (LV Motorcoach Resort, Seven Feathers in Canyonville, OR for example). We'd like to give Montrose RV Resort a 9.5 if we could! We'll certainly be back.

Don't expect a resort type facility with manicured lawns, spas on every corner and bathrooms done in porcelain tile in Green River, Utah. If you need a decent place to park your rig for a few nights in this locale, I don't think you'll do better than Shady Acres. It's all gravel, but that's the most practical thing to do in this environment. The big rig sites are long and roomy, and the utilities are very good. The bathrooms and showers are immaculate, and the management personnel are friendly and helpful. If you want a nice place to walk your dog, put him in the toad and go to the Town Park on Main Street; he'll have a good time while you marvel at the huge missile at the front of the park. There is one really good reason to spend some time in Green River; the John Wesley Powell River Exploration Museum, which is right on the bank of the river. The displays are of excellent quality, the story of the exploration of the Green and Colorado Rivers is well told, and the movie that they show is first rate; best we've seen. The staff is super friendly and helpful; five stars to this place!

This is a very pleasant place to stay if you're visiting the St. George area or Zion National Park. The management is very friendly and helpful, the sites are large and well maintained, the utilities are excellent, and park cleanliness is fastidious. The free WiFi is flawless. The only real negative I could cite is the adequacy of the bath facilities, which amount to one per sex. Two would be twice as good. Leeds is a charming little town, with a number of historical homes and buildings. Don't miss Silver Reef and the Wells Fargo Express Museum; quite a story!

Here's the reality; if you are in need of a really decent RV Park in the area just north of Seattle, this is the only game in town. We've stayed in a couple of the parks along Highway 99 south of Everett, and won't do it again. Lake Pleasant has the characteristics of being visually appealing with lakes, ducks and trees, clean restrooms and showers, good maintenance of its roads and sites, friendly and competent staff, and relatively high rates. Yes: many of the sites are less than level, some are too narrow, and the idea that you have to put planks under your jacks to keep from sinking through the asphalt is a bit bizarre. It's still the only game in town. I don't use the park Wi-Fi, but my son was able to pick up a very strong signal on our site in the rear row of the park. We will return next year; there is no choice.

This is a very well laid out park, with level concrete pads and lots of grass at each site. The sites are about twice as large as you'll find at most parks, very roomy, with a picnic table at each one. The public facilities were clean, functional and spacious. The only reason I couldn't give the place a 10 is the silly 25 cent charge for each five minutes of shower use. The park is a short walk from the Evergreen Aviation Museum, which houses a marvelous collection of aircraft and spacecraft. It's really a must see for anyone interested in aviation. McMinnville is a charming town, with a lively and historic main street. You'll probably want to extend your stay here.

This park is obviously very well run and maintained, and is probably the best RV facility in the area. The personnel are all friendly and helpful, and all the public facilities are clean and functional. Our site, which was located on the upper level of the park: was good sized and easy to back into, with the help of one of the park personnel. It's not far from the beach horizontally, but vertically is another matter: long steep stairways! The morning munchies were a nice touch, and we appreciated the newspaper delivery in the morning. All in all, a very pleasant experience.

We've stayed here many times before, and the place just keeps getting better. Anyone who is considering building and operating a high quality RV Park should come to Canyonville and study this operation. It's truly faultless. The setting, with wooded hills on three sides, is grand. The sites are perfectly laid out and outfitted. The amenities are everything you could ask for. And the staff are very friendly and courteous. And all for a very reasonable price! This is a class act.

We generally try not to use Highway 5 through the San Joaquin Valley, partly because it is so boring, but also because we had yet to find a decent RV Park for overnighting. On this trip, our schedule demanded the use of the boring I-5 all the way up to Oregon from SoCal. We read the reviews of the Kit Fox Park, and decided to push through to Patterson before stopping for the night. We're really glad we did. It's a relatively young park, with well designed and perfectly clean public areas. The sites are in great shape, everything on ours worked perfectly. It's located far enough from the highway that noise is not a problem. There are no ants, no broken down RV's anchored to their sites. They don't have cable TV yet, but they are getting it in. The office personnel are friendly and helpful, and there are some decent fast food outlets nearby. We'll definitely return whenever we need to use the San Joaquin section of the I-5.

We regret that our schedule requires that we leave tomorrow after only two nights here. Next time, we'll schedule a week! This is a great little park in a wonderful location, particularly if you're visiting the Grand Canyon. The town of Williams is charming and fun, with lots of shops and restaurants. Beer fanciers, try the Sultana Ale at the Sultana Bar downtown. Regarding the park, the new restrooms and showers are great, lots of hot water, and lots of room. Our site, at the top of the hill, was perfectly level and had a great view. The utilities were flawless, with the exception of a leaky water valve, which was pointed out to the staff while hooking up. It was fixed the next day. We really enjoyed it here, and look forward to returning.

A very pleasant RV Park, quiet, no highway noise, well-maintained, and very dog-friendly. The management personnel are personable and accommodating. We had breakfast in their diner, and the biscuits and gravy were commendable. Showers and restrooms were immaculate. Regarding Tucumcari, stay a day and visit their Dinosaur Museum (awesome) and their historical museum, which should be a model for every town's display of their history. We didn't give it a nine because their jacuzzi wasn't operating, and we only give tens to Outdoor Resorts level facilities. This is definitely the best Park in Tucumcari.

This place wasn't the RV Park that we had originally decided on for our stay, but a wrong turn took us here. One look, and we decided that we had found our spot. The location is flawless, right on the bank of the French Broad River, a quiet large river of great beauty. The park is beautifully landscaped and extraordinarily well maintained, and the sites are all concrete pads, perfectly level. The sites at the riverbank are all head-in, so you can open you drapes in the morning and see the beautiful river. The staff are extremely helpful and accommodating, and the restroom/showers are clean and very nicely appointed. We do think that they would increase their business by at least fifty percent if they were to reduce their rates by 25 percent. The place was never more than one quarter full during the five days we were there. Regardless, we wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area. The Deli just up the hill is great for lunches.

This Park represents the reason we never have any misapprehensions when booking into a KOA. The people were friendly and helpful, the place was well-groomed, the restrooms were well maintained and clean, and all the site utilities were in good shape. This Park is on a hillside, with lots of trees, and you should probably unhook your toad at the office. One of the hosts will help you get spotted. There are nature trails for dog walking, and the place is very pet friendly. The big bonus here is the location; you're close to the Natural Bridge (a must see), Blue Ridge Parkway, Poplar Forest, and a lot of other atractions, not the least of which is the town of Lexington. The Washington and Lee campus and VMI are each beautiful, and the Lee Chapel and Museum is also a must see. We planned to spend three days here and wound up staying five. In general, a remarkably lovely area.

This was a very good camping experience. Site accessibility is very good, utilities are in good shape, our site, though gravel, was fairly level. The staff was very helpful and accommodating, and the general ambiance was excellent. There is a very healthy creek running through the park, and a fishing pond. A group of sites further up the hill provides more solitude. And we should point out that this is the only good campground in the area, midway between Waynesboro and Charlottesville. If you're visiting Monticello, this is the place to stay. Don't neglect James Monroe's home, either, just a few miles from Jefferson's.

Not much to add to previous comments; this is a RV park that really cares about providing a quality experience to your stay here. The sites are plenty adequate in size, concrete, level, with perfectly functioning utilities. The bath house is wonderfully appointed, great showers. As a dog person, I want to point out the wonderful grassy meadows that surround the camping area; my good friend, the perfect Golden Retreiver, had a wonderful time here. I think you will too.

We were very positively impressed with this park. It is primarily a residential enclave, and park models predominate. The management makes it obvious that they intend to provide first rate service to the itinerant crowd, such as short-timers like us. We were guided to a lovely, grassy site near the bathhouse by a young lady who was more than helpful in getting us acquainted with the park, and even gave our spoiled-rotten dog a ride in her golf cart. The utilities were first-rate, the rest rooms were spotless, and the showers were just this side of Outdoor Resorts! We experienced courtesy and professionalism at each contact with the staff. We even got an introduction to the Park's Guard Bird, a Killdeer who had planted her eggs near the Office. My dog wants me to mention the large grassy areas that are available for walks and exercise. There is currently a bridge under repair that requires a rather lengthy detour to get to the park. Take the detour; it's worth it!

KOA Parks are generally well managed, clean, and provide good family facilities. I have no complaints about this parks cleanliness or facilities. But it seemed a bit disorganized when we were assigned to a site which turned out to be occupied by one of their Workampers. The site we were shifted to required the water hose to be run under the coach to the adjoining site. The people in the site next to us had parked their tow dolly next to our picnic table, and the KOA management had not required them to move it. These aren't major complaints; but when a RV Park is charging what most would consider to be premium rates, you might expect exceptional sites, competent management, and a unique experience. You won't find it at the Wilmington KOA.

We chose this campground because the one recommended to us, Hunting Island, was full. We think we got lucky. Our principal focus for this visit was the Beaufort area, and this campground is 16 miles closer than the Hunting Island site is. It was relatively easy to get to, if you do some careful route planning. At check-in, the staff was pleasant and accommodating, and we were escorted to a spacious site not far from the restrooms and showers. The park is beautifully wooded, with live oak and palmettos. The utilities are in good condition. There is a nature trail over a "low country" area (we don't say swamp), which was of interest. A large grassy area with a children's playground was provided. Woodsy roads and paths were great for dog-walking. We had a great experience here, and will definitely book here again when we're in the area.
